00:03:45--> 00:03:59

Yes, Aluna Ken O'Neal and Ollie, Lulu. He will resume. But duckula who were asleep with Toby Unicom. Welcome to your allah how Allah Sula who Incan meaning

00:04:03--> 00:04:07

the intention today is to start the series of the laws of victory.

00:04:08--> 00:04:19

But every time I intend to start it, I find it extremely difficult to talk about anything aside from what it is that we have been talking about for the last two months or more.

00:04:23--> 00:04:28

I'm just awed by the amount of power that they must have.

00:04:29--> 00:04:34

In order for even these the MPs of a country I love my country by the way.

00:04:35--> 00:04:41

I love Canada by vote. I'm a fourth fifth generation Canadian easily on my mother's side.

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

But come on, we're not that impactful on a on a global scale. We don't have that much impact. We've always been quite friendly and quiet. But for even local MPs and mares to find it difficult you just ask for a ceasefire. I'm not saying that they can do

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

am evil, or condemned persecution or oppression or apartheid or racism? We're just saying, Can you maybe just ask for people to stop being killed uselessly and and

00:05:11--> 00:05:36

they can't even do that. So I'm awed by the amount of power that the other group must have over people like this. It blows my mind. How powerful Are you? Oh, Ford, your tentacles go into every political system on Earth, in order for it to be difficult for a political servant for a public servant? To just say that, can you stop killing innocent human beings? I am awed by it.

00:05:37--> 00:05:53

I understand I understand how the President of the United States and the larger groups and I understand the Imperial forces, the those who represent them as difficult they can do it. But I don't understand something on a much, much more local level. That is, that is kind of weird to me.

00:05:54--> 00:06:03

I think none if that's how far this goes. That's how far that's how deep this runs, that we can't get even that that we have to beg.

00:06:04--> 00:06:44

We're constituents of these public servants, we have that bag, we have to process week after week, for 60 days, just to get them to say can you ask, can you ask we know you don't control anything. We know you have no control or authority. Can you at least just publicly state that it's important for them to stop killing civilians? No, not that's that's an uphill battle. Now it's an uphill battle. Imagine that. Imagine that you have people representing you. And you make it very clear that the public opinion is that there should be a stop of of bloodshed. And they still can't do it. They can't do it.

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

They're what are they? What are you scared of?

00:06:48--> 00:07:12

What are you scared of? I want to know what it is that that you're I want I know, I'm interested. Now. I'm actually more interested than anything I need. I needed to explain to me what is it that you fear so much? Could it be you're scared for your well, that is it? Is it your your job? Is it money? Could it be that that's what it is? Maybe Maybe Maybe that's what it is, I always thought that to some degree, human integrity would prevail over over the need of for wealth,

00:07:13--> 00:07:41

that there'll be a line where there would be a point where where money stopped mattering, especially when you're looking at 1000s of children being buried under the rubble have their own homes, hospitals being destroyed and people being slaughtered. aimlessly, you would think at some point, yeah, we would give up that fear that we have for our own comfort. But apparently not, oh, maybe there's more to this story than I am even aware of.

00:07:42--> 00:08:21

Let me explain to you why I'm going to go through the series of Switzerland fall in the midst of all of this agony and sorrow and pain, not to distract from the cause that we are preoccupied by. And we should continue to be preoccupied by until it stops, quite frankly. And whatever advocacy you you are required to show you show, I believe that maybe that week that we had off was to was actually offered and by design to see if maybe people forget, because we have a very short term memory. And we do end up getting bored of talking about the same topic. So maybe if we give him some time off, and they can all relax, maybe we go back again, there'll be less of a of a reason for them to be

00:08:21--> 00:08:38

upset, maybe it'll be less. No, there'll be less momentum, people will kind of get too busy and have other things to do. And I think that's where the the pitfall of this whole story is going to lie that we need to not only continue to advocate but we have to go back advocating actually much more intensely than we were at the beginning of this whole story.

00:08:40--> 00:08:54

And that's why I'm going to share with you Sortland file teachers. If you look at the Quran, and the way that is sequenced, not the way it was revealed, but the way it was chronologically sequenced in the book, you find that the first 10 Jews are made out of only nine sutras.

00:08:56--> 00:09:31

Most of them, seven of them are called The Seven I'll tell you why the seven long ones because they're all overages easily the shortest beings with October the last ones on a page, everything else is much more than that. In the midst of them in the middle of the sewers, you have Suitland file, it's 10 pages, it's half inches, it literally half inches. It does not in terms of its length, it doesn't fit with all those around it's everything is way longer actually there's two of those that are much longer that come longer than that come later on in the Quran. So from a length perspective, the Quran is just being sequenced by length. Well, Suitland doesn't really fit but it's

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

not a sequence by length, a sequence by by topic.

00:09:35--> 00:10:00

And after Allah subhanaw taala in the first seven Surah of the Quran explains what it is we are here to do, how we're going to maintain it, what values we carry, what covenants we signed, what relationships we have on an individual level with Allah and on a communal level with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada through the first time and in Silicon Valley comes He gives us laws, here are the laws for your success only. And so to try to explain here's how you maintain your nation. Here's the relations

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

You have with all the people within your nation outside of your nation, and how you make sure that you continue to keep your heads above water. So Glen fall is short because it's laws. Nobody likes long documents talking about laws or rules because people get bored of that. So as soon as gonna give us laws, it has to be shorter than everything around it, which is in keeping with what the suit is trying to teach. And just about the the name that most scholars give the sort of the laws of success are Colonia Nasir. And it goes through a number of topics. I'm going to share a number of them with you over the next couple of weeks. But the first one is a little bit related to what I was

00:10:34--> 00:10:47

talking about. Initially. Maybe it's Well, maybe it's money. Maybe the reason people don't speak the truth. Maybe they don't change their minds or do some research or look back, maybe it's Well, maybe it's money.

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

It probably is quite quite frankly,

00:10:51--> 00:11:03

this sutra talks about the laws of victory or the laws of success is called an fg ln file. And file is a word that is used to describe the bounty of war.

00:11:04--> 00:11:08

Or what it is you get back the loot that you end up picking up. It's one of the names that is used and unfold.

00:11:09--> 00:11:16

And then you have under on file you have the word mark on them. You have the word feet, different words to describe different types of of wealth that is taken after after a battle.

00:11:18--> 00:11:21

But the origin of the word unfurl is from knuffel.

00:11:22--> 00:11:27

And as you probably have heard the word before when you pray, you pray a fuddled, and you pray enough ILA.

00:11:28--> 00:11:57

Because the word now if you don't know, in its essence means something that's extra. Something that you don't necessarily need something that is not required when 100% And finally is required, you must do it now if it's something that you do this extra add on file is used as scribe wealth, but you don't necessarily need it's not to keep you alive. It's just extra that you get from being a part of this army or engaging or participating in whatever conquest was occurring. So it's extra

00:11:59--> 00:12:25

disorders named that because the number one problem because we're going to fight isn't just talk about when I talk about the laws of victory is not just telling us what to do. No, the Quran is very interesting telling us what not to do, because that's where the danger actually exists. It's not there's a lot of good things you can do but you have to be aware of the things that you absolutely cannot do. And it will for sure sink your ship and ruin your plans and take away your ability to achieve whatever it is you are aspiring

00:12:27--> 00:12:28

and it's called unfold

00:12:29--> 00:13:08

because that's where the danger truly truly lies. Let me tell you a bit about the story that caused this to be revealed Oh God had an assignment and you find this story and seal it up in his heart and admonition others as well. He said knows that I still don't on file Fina. MashAllah Bedore omashola Holy basil llama Hold on. I still wanna him fossa fee ha Hakuna. But he said no to Allah Who I know. You said that the story of unfurl, the sutra was revealed after the Battle of Buddle. When we the people of bugger saw the bounty of the word the caravan that was that was captured or what was captured aside from that around that

00:13:10--> 00:13:48

and Sachi o'clock or ethics or our behaviors were not great. This is a guy did an assignment meeting we weren't you weren't the best when we'd behaved how we behaved regarding that how do you think mom did anything? Whereas say Edna aside and it will cost the unknown then also hobby would bring to the profit out of you so are you sought to save say that an analysis and notice it's a non story in the collection? You bring save say that now see what he brought with him a sword a very famous sword that he had picked up during the battle who belonged to a man called Satan and also it was a famous sword and he had won the duel and he wanted the sword Akali Allah said Allah save say that man to

00:13:48--> 00:14:20

whom you know about like I brought it with me from from the Americas I did not call home and hey, Sue I take it back to where you bought it from a color yellow supposed to yellow suit. Hola, Willie, an Alcatel tuna. It's mine. I fought him Colorado home Anheuser has to take it back to where you bought it from the cook era sola huli huli or at least will offer it to me Bacala Lee Rhoda who either lockable gates take you get back to where you are today. Three times he had to tell him tell him Father Father who sat inside took it back. He didn't say no. But there was something there.

00:14:21--> 00:14:40

There was something going on materialism piece. That materialism piece. You want to ruin anything. You bring materialism and put it in the middle of and just watch. Take a step back and watch. Get them interested in money. Get them interested in profit. And then watch this is not just how you do in a communal

00:14:41--> 00:15:00

aspiration. It's not how you ruin social work. This is how you ruin individuals. When a ruin people that the more interested in money than they were before and this will happen. These words I'm going to share are for the younger brothers and sisters. If you're older, you can feel free to ignore them. You see how your young now and you don't really think

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

too much about money. Like it's not the first thing on your mind. It's not number one, you're thinking about studies or thinking about other

00:15:06--> 00:15:19

sports, you're thinking about building relays, you have all these other things on your mind, money is there, you just need enough of it to get by, you're not really focusing on making a lot of money. See that that ends up if you're not careful, that changes, if you're not careful that changes.

00:15:20--> 00:15:59

If you're not very aware of it, slowly, slowly, it goes away. And you start focusing more and more on your comfort on your, on your leisure, and you start needing and wanting a little bit more than you ever needed or wanted before. And then the baseline of what you require to survive is now much higher than it was before. You don't really know why anymore, because you can't see that there was much of a difference. Maybe you're married now have some kids. But the change is too big for it to be explained just by the addition of a few human beings. But slowly if you're not, if you're not careful, if you're not cautious, you start indulging in certain habits, habits that cost money and

00:15:59--> 00:16:34

they become norms for you. And you're not okay living without them. And then because because now you have all you have all these habits that require money and all these Leisure's that you want to enjoy and indulgent and they cost money, you need to make a certain standard of wealth. And that takes a certain amount of time and expertise. And you need job security in order for that to be the case. And slowly, slowly, but surely, slowly, but surely, your focus becomes on making sure that you can keep that amount of wealth with you. So that you can enjoy the stuff that you've decided are essential for you. And you don't have time anymore to volunteer or to worry about what's happening

00:16:34--> 00:17:07

in the world or to actually attribute or contribute in a way that you were able to contribute before. And it's a world holds despite a vortex of you just continuously wanting more needing more doing more and making more than doing the same. Don't you wonder why? That people who make money in numbers that maybe most of us can't even comprehend? When we talk about the millions and the billions? And we say why? Why would you even need all that money? What are you gonna do with all of it, but when you speak to them, they actually have a very different concept. They see themselves barely making and they're very upset if they're not actually making going on more, because it's just

00:17:07--> 00:17:43

about the standard of life that you decide to live by. It's all about whatever standard of life you give yourself, what your expectations of dunya is, that's all it is. That's all this is about. Be very careful about it and fall, about the extra wealth that you don't need. Be careful, it was almost ruined, the idea of the people are better, which is why the studio is named that which is why it's the first thing I told him this before he even tells us the story of the people of Buddle he talks about land fall, you're you're almost ruined it, you almost ruined the amazing achievement what is more important in the history of Muslims aside from the deal, but

00:17:44--> 00:17:53

is there anything even nothing comes even remotely close? No money for con yo Mr. Kojima and that's the day that people have budget are the ones who are who will have a have a basically a

00:17:54--> 00:18:28

out of jail card. They don't they can do almost anything they want. And then Allah Subhan Allah forgive them, and then met an amazing achievement accomplish something something. But still they almost ruined it with a little bit of greed, a little bit of greed. And they're obvious, honestly, they were well within their rights to want a little bit more, because they had almost nothing, because they almost had nothing in today's standards. They had nothing. They were under the line of poverty, for sure all of them side who was asking for the sword was under the line to poverty, for sure. For sure he couldn't he quit, he wasn't able to make ends meet. And yet the Quran camp says

00:18:28--> 00:18:57

you're talking about land fall. And finally Allah He would assume it belongs to Allah and His Prophet and will be distributed accordingly. But duckula So make sure you are mindful of your Lord, while asleep who that being that you need come and go deep. Dig deep inside and take a look at yourself again. And make sure that you purify that which is inside of you and that which is amongst you as relationships, and this is the advice that they're being offered. Be very careful. Be very aware of this pitfall

00:18:59--> 00:19:39

which is just wanting more. And you know, Muhammad tells us that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam hotel Abu Huraira Mustafa Alikum work in sha Allah Ecotec, Ethel, it's not poverty that I fear for you. I fear for you wanting more to Castle, you know, this sort of hacking with the castle. What is the castle, having children that's what you find in an in a biologic biology book, if you study in the Middle East, but that's not what it means is linguistically that means the need or the desire for more, I want more. I have this but I want more distinct the distinction between what you require and what you want. I talked about this every year before Ramadan. Every year before Ramadan,

00:19:39--> 00:20:00

I stand here I tell you what Madonna is here to teach us and remind us what we want and what we need are not the same thing. They're not you can survive on much less than what you have today. Easily, and you can be happy unless you choose not to. Unless you choose to I won't I deserve more. And I will not accept a standard less than the one I live in right now. And I will spend whatever time that I'm away

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

Want to make sure that I can provide that standard for myself, when that standard is not even not even reasonable, that standard is not even beneficial for us or for those around us.

00:20:10--> 00:20:42

That's the problem. Beware my young brothers and sisters of, of money of the lure of money to slowly calling you and calling you in and then trapping you crapping in this world hole of just wanting more and making more and wanting more and needing more. And then you you're talking, I spend time with people who are wealthy. I spend time with people who have money, they talk about very, they talk about their trips, and where they went before when they were going next. And what they talk about money, it's all about, it's all money. It's all what they have and what they're going to go and what they didn't want the experience. It's all based on wealth. It's very little talk on what

00:20:42--> 00:21:09

that wealth could do this. Is this whole buzz here not this whole was not designed to tell you to be poor. No, no, no, no, that's, it's the opposite. We actually need you to be wealthy. The concept of materials in Switzerland file is talked about in two separate manners. It's talked about in the sense of do not be materialistic. And then it's talked about what do you do with your money? That's what you find in the Surah while Mo and nama wanting to mention it in family law Homosassa, who will have a sudo, which is what you do with the wealth, why am I doing people will be in shape and fee sebelah and the same sort

00:21:10--> 00:21:18

of laminin that what you put forward from your wealth for the sake of Allah, you will not be deprived the measure and the reward that you will get on the day of judgment from doing that.

00:21:19--> 00:21:39

There was talked about in two separate ways, there'll be materialistic and make sure your wealth is used appropriately. So we need you to make a lot of money, as much money as you can make. But then that money has to be something that you own, it doesn't own you, you own it. So you will use it in the way that you see fit, that you know, it's beneficial for the Ummah that you're a part of,

00:21:40--> 00:22:04

for the needs of the people around you. No one's saying that it's called undefined. It's not called money to sue. Because the problem is not with money. Of course you need wealth. It's called and find the extra stuff that you didn't necessarily need. You want it but you didn't need it. You didn't need it. You could have easily walked away from this not requiring a Why did you want it? Why did you feel the urge to go and take something that you didn't really need? I don't understand that in the Quran because I know they were in need.

00:22:05--> 00:22:15

It's very hard because I know the Sahaba at that time were in dire need. So if Allah subhanaw taala defines their situation as not being in need, I do not know how he defines ours.

00:22:16--> 00:22:49

If he defines that if you define it the way outside and inside and obeyed them, but hopefully you were at that time saying you're not in need this is undefined. This is extra stop fighting for it. That I have no idea what he says when he looks at us subhanaw taala I really don't I can't comprehend it. I can't make the comparison. Because I can tell take you to my house. There's no food for a month. It's not my comfort food. It's not the stuff that I like. It's not the stuff that I desire. We wake up in the morning, but it's food and it'll keep me alive for sure. It's not exactly what I want it's not the exact thing that I desire, but it'll it'll do

00:22:51--> 00:22:57

same thing my house same thing my car, same thing everything I got it does the job is done exactly what I would hope for.

00:22:59--> 00:23:02

But duckula asleep without debate and

00:23:03--> 00:23:40

that's what he that's what he said somehow right at the beginning. And then he actually goes on to strive as believers in the Malmo commune Lavina either to Kira Allah Hua Ji let's Kulu boom, why they are totally utterly him.

Brothers and sisters what I want to end with the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam an unknown story called The Story of Manila Bahrain he sent up Obeidallah, the Allahu anhu, to pick up some there was some wealth that was being brought from certain parts of eastern Arabia. And he came in the unsought who were extremely, extremely poor. I came to him out of your salatu salam, they prayed for God and they stood around after flagella just quietly just stood in a group. He saw them out of his throat to a salon, they understood what was happening. He came to the human body. So he comes to the Mikado, I love him. semitone be our daddy. Obey that the manual behind maybe you heard that already.

00:29:01--> 00:29:36

They came back with the money from the honey *a Luna, I'm Yasuda Yes, we heard but they were too bashful to come and ask him for calling Michiru Well, I'm middleby lady. You're so welcome. I want to give you the good news of what's coming. It's going to be beautiful for you. And you'll be happy when new Hola. Hola. Alikum will soccer and I don't fear that you will continue to live in poverty. Well, I can actually come with dunya and Toby Shopaholic on camera Bucha Talamanca Anna copula calm for total here Come Come alhaja home what to Holika Come Come look at home. My fear for you is that dunya is given to you it's opened you have a lot of it and then distracts you like it distracted the

00:29:36--> 00:29:42

people who came before you and then it's your demise. It becomes your demise as it was the demise of the people before you.

00:29:43--> 00:30:00

This concept is central within our deen beware of being materialistic. Beware of allowing your enough's to take on all of that which desires and wants. Because there's no end it's an it's a black hole.

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

rule is, there's no that no matter how much wealth you throw into it, it will absorb and devour more. And the more you give, the more it will take. And the higher the standard, and the more the work and the less time and the less care that you have to the people around you.

00:30:13--> 00:30:38

And Muslims do not allow that to be the case. We are not told to be poor, we are told to be generous. We are told to us from dunya as the prophet Allah is, honestly until the Sahaba, Miss Silesia rock, if that's the wording he used, take the provision of a traveler, you're on a journey, how much do you need to get to your destination take from dunya that much do not take from dunya anymore.

00:30:39--> 00:31:16

If our OMA wants to find salvation, if we hope to see change, we have to start putting our money where our mouths are, we have to start actually putting our wealth. This is not me standing here begging you for wealth for massages, even though if you don't give them a value of money, they close eventually, they don't exist anymore. So it is up to you at the end. But here's me saying that if you want to see change in your own wealth is a piece of that. If we fight over and fun, if you're still looking for the answer, you want as much of it as possible, and we have not dealt with the desires and the whims of our souls and removed.

00:31:18--> 00:31:55

What it is that needs to be removed from inside of us than our own will will continue to suffer because we have to put our wealth into the projects that are going to allow us to find some degree of of strength of prominence have the ability to make sure our voices arrive where they need to arrive. And I talked about this right after Ramadan. Last year, I taught or this year, I talked about financial centralization, as something that every community needs in order for it to be a community and not a population, we need to make sure that we manage our wealth well as Muslims, so that we can get our voice out so we can make sure representatives are actually representing us so

00:31:55--> 00:32:31

that we can actually speak our minds so that Muslims are protected when it comes to their jobs, so that we can actually help the people who are suffering, because individual based initiatives are nice, but they don't go very far. We have so many organizations that Islam, Muslim organizations with pathetic budgets, when you look at the NCCM, or even ECMO locally pathetic budgets, they have no money, no one gives them money. And we expect them to advocate on our behalf. We expect them to make it somehow to the ears of the politicians and actually make a difference. But we're not willing to put our money. We want to go to massage and and be served and find education for our children and

00:32:31--> 00:33:07

for ourselves and space but no money. We don't want to put our money. If you don't put money I mean, nothing happens. It burns out quickly. It burns out quickly. The flames that you see will burn out if you don't put your wealth. If you want the people of us to make it better. We even if the state we're all giving money today to make sure that we help them. But if you don't want this to happen again, if you want to be able to say to to prevent this from occurring, we have to have more strength within our within the countries that we live in. As Muslims as minority communities living in the Western world, we have to have more strength. And without wealth, there is no strength

00:33:07--> 00:33:41

without wealth. Without properly managed wealth, I'll put it that way. Without properly manage wealth, there is no strength, we will continue to suffer and will continue to fail. And guys like me will continue to get on this memo and yell at you for 30 minutes and then come down and pray as your mind everyone goes home. And and just and rinse and repeat. And rinse and repeat time and time again, until people get bored of coming to massage and listening to people talk to them about note. And with no change, but no implementation of any form of change. Wealth has to be we need to properly manage our wealth and our community. And we have to give up this materialistic approach.

00:33:41--> 00:34:18

Muslims have to go back to the way their ancestors were, we have to go back to that we have to go back go home today and question your standard of life. question it. Question what we're doing. Can we live on less? Can we make sure that we put more of our wealth into our community so that we can actually have a voice and make a difference. And that's the first law of victory ensuited glenford. If that law is not followed, I don't even know if there's any point of me sharing the rest of them with you. I don't know if it's worth going through the rest of the laws that the SUTA talks about. I feel like it'd be a bit of a waste of time. Because the soda was named after this one was named

00:34:18--> 00:34:21

after this one that unfiled the extra

00:34:22--> 00:34:36

stuff you don't need but you want. I hope that was a benefit to you. There's a number of different initiatives this week and shelter brother humble will share them with you after prayer. So hold on for a moment so you can hear them there's a lot of advocacy going on. People must continue to

00:34:37--> 00:35:00

support it. We are very blessed today to have one of our families come back from Gaza, the Hutu family may Allah subhanaw taala preserve them all. And may Allah subhanaw taala protect the the family members with whom they have left behind one of the brothers brother Ahmed, who was a nurse who was working on at the hospital is still trapped in the northern part of Lazarus will make keep him in your DUA and make dua that Allah subhanaw taala grants him a way out to safely come back to us inshallah Tada and this is just to enter

00:35:00--> 00:35:37

To ease the pain and to increase and to remind us Allah subhanaw taala sent them at first to remind us that this is not over yet. And even if there is a ceasefire, even if it stops temporarily or even even for a longer period of time this is not over. It's not over until the rights are returned to their to those who are oppressed and those who are persecuted. And that has to be on our radar radar for the rest of our existence.
