The importance of not entering certain areas until punished and not being aware of the consequences of their actions is emphasized. The punishment system of Allah's punishment is designed to prevent harm to their environment and elevate their need to pray and fast. The speaker emphasizes the importance of spending money on one's own health and life, rather than risking their own life, and encourages individuals to be realistic and not engage in collective duels. The expansion of the Prophet's mosque is also discussed, along with the desire to own a home and avoid getting in trouble. The importance of building a house for oneself and personal involvement in the process is also emphasized.

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

So

00:00:10--> 00:00:11

we're continuing

00:00:12--> 00:00:13

the grace of Allah

00:00:15--> 00:00:18

explaining the hadith from the book of Zohd

00:00:19--> 00:00:19

from

00:00:20--> 00:00:22

Sahih al Imam Muslim

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

And

00:00:26--> 00:00:27

in this hadith,

00:00:28--> 00:00:31

rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam

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

said li'ashabil hijri,

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

meaning

00:00:38--> 00:00:38

on his way

00:00:40--> 00:00:41

to Tabuk,

00:00:41--> 00:00:44

alaihis salatu wasalam with the sahaba, they passed

00:00:44--> 00:00:45

by

00:00:46--> 00:00:46

the dwellings

00:00:47--> 00:00:48

of the people of Thamud.

00:00:50--> 00:00:51

Right? The people of Salih

00:00:52--> 00:00:53

alayhi salam.

00:00:55--> 00:00:56

So he said about that, he said,

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

He said, do not enter the dwellings of

00:01:11--> 00:01:11

those

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

punished people

00:01:14--> 00:01:16

unless you are crying.

00:01:17--> 00:01:18

But if you are not crying, you do

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

not enter their dwellings

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

or you will suffer what they suffered.

00:01:24--> 00:01:25

And

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

in the following hadith, Abdullah ibn Umar,

00:01:28--> 00:01:30

who is the same narrator of the first

00:01:30--> 00:01:30

one,

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

he

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

said He says we pass by.

00:01:38--> 00:01:39

So the prophet

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

said

00:01:47--> 00:01:48

which is similar

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

to what he said in the first narration.

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

And then he adds,

00:01:56--> 00:01:58

Then he rushed his camel

00:01:59--> 00:02:00

until he left

00:02:01--> 00:02:02

their dwellings.

00:02:04--> 00:02:07

So here the prophet, alayhis salaam,

00:02:07--> 00:02:08

passing by their

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

city,

00:02:11--> 00:02:12

and that is a city where they were

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

punished.

00:02:15--> 00:02:16

And so he, alayhis salaam,

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

is saying that if this is an area

00:02:19--> 00:02:21

that Allah had punished, he had destroyed the

00:02:21--> 00:02:21

people,

00:02:22--> 00:02:25

that this is an area of Allah's anger,

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

of Allah's wrath,

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

of Allah's vengeance.

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

This is an area of disobedience,

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

of unrepentance.

00:02:34--> 00:02:35

Right?

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

This is not a good spot to be

00:02:37--> 00:02:37

in.

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

Right? So on on earth, there are good

00:02:40--> 00:02:43

spots to be in, the houses of Allah

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

or places

00:02:45--> 00:02:47

that Allah loves,

00:02:47--> 00:02:49

Mecca and Medina,

00:02:50--> 00:02:51

Al Quds,

00:02:53--> 00:02:55

or places of obedience in general. And there

00:02:55--> 00:02:57

are places of disobedience,

00:02:58--> 00:02:59

places of disbelief.

00:03:00--> 00:03:02

And the worst among them all are places

00:03:02--> 00:03:05

that Allah, azzawajal, were so angry with the

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

population

00:03:06--> 00:03:08

that he annihilated them,

00:03:09--> 00:03:10

finished them off completely.

00:03:11--> 00:03:13

So he alaihis salatu wasalam is saying that

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

if you're to pass

00:03:16--> 00:03:16

through their

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

city,

00:03:18--> 00:03:20

you can pass only with one condition. What

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

is that condition?

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

You need to be what?

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

Crying.

00:03:26--> 00:03:28

You need to rush. You cannot just,

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

stay behind. You can't take your time. You

00:03:31--> 00:03:33

need to rush. But also when you enter,

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

you need to be crying.

00:03:37--> 00:03:37

Why crying?

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

What does it show when you cry?

00:03:41--> 00:03:42

It shows

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

that you are aware that Allah

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

destroyed the population

00:03:46--> 00:03:46

right here.

00:03:48--> 00:03:49

You're aware that he was angry,

00:03:50--> 00:03:53

that you fear his anger to be to

00:03:53--> 00:03:54

being reproduced

00:03:55--> 00:03:58

in that area because this is not

00:03:59--> 00:04:00

a good area to be in.

00:04:00--> 00:04:02

What if it were to repeat?

00:04:03--> 00:04:06

See you're aware that Allah got really angry

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

with the people, so you're afraid of his

00:04:08--> 00:04:09

anger.

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

You're afraid of his anger when it comes

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

to you.

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

Like what if Allah a zawoodal were to

00:04:16--> 00:04:18

be that angry with me and he will

00:04:19--> 00:04:20

punish me for my own sins?

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

What if Allah Azzawadil were to look at

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

the population of earth today and punish us

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

all for our own sins?

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

So that fear of Allah Azzawadil

00:04:31--> 00:04:33

would cause a person to cry.

00:04:33--> 00:04:35

Or you could cry for humanity

00:04:37--> 00:04:39

that they are so displeased Allah

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

that they deserve that

00:04:42--> 00:04:44

faith. So you could cry for them.

00:04:48--> 00:04:49

Or you also yeah. And so this is

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

a crying out of mercy.

00:04:52--> 00:04:52

Right?

00:04:53--> 00:04:54

Or you could also

00:04:55--> 00:04:55

cry

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

so that Allah could spare you

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

their fate.

00:05:02--> 00:05:03

So you're crying in repentance

00:05:05--> 00:05:08

and you're crying also perhaps in gratitude

00:05:09--> 00:05:12

that Allah azzawajid had spared you so far.

00:05:14--> 00:05:16

So he said if you are not crying,

00:05:16--> 00:05:17

do not enter

00:05:17--> 00:05:18

their city.

00:05:20--> 00:05:24

Why? Because if you lack that sentiment, if

00:05:24--> 00:05:26

you lack that emotion, if you lack that

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

reaction,

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

means that you are cold hearted

00:05:32--> 00:05:33

and that you are distant from Allah

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

and you're callous when it comes to the

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

prospect of Allah punishing you, you don't care.

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

And if the heart is that cold and

00:05:43--> 00:05:45

if the eye is that dry,

00:05:45--> 00:05:48

a person is closer to Allah's punishment than

00:05:48--> 00:05:48

his

00:05:49--> 00:05:49

mercy.

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

So if you're not gonna

00:05:52--> 00:05:54

be worried about your faith, if you're not

00:05:54--> 00:05:55

gonna be crying

00:05:56--> 00:05:58

especially in the location like that,

00:05:59--> 00:06:01

then maybe something like that will happen to

00:06:01--> 00:06:01

you.

00:06:02--> 00:06:04

So the fear of that repetition

00:06:05--> 00:06:06

should push you to cry.

00:06:07--> 00:06:09

And if you cannot

00:06:09--> 00:06:09

cry,

00:06:11--> 00:06:12

then pretend

00:06:14--> 00:06:15

that you're

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

crying and rush

00:06:18--> 00:06:20

out of that city. So that what it

00:06:20--> 00:06:21

is what he did,

00:06:25--> 00:06:28

Alright? He rushed his camel so that he

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

could leave this place as soon as possible.

00:06:30--> 00:06:32

So a place like that or any place

00:06:32--> 00:06:34

similar to it, if we are aware of

00:06:34--> 00:06:36

any other place, not only the place of

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

the people of Thamud, but any other place

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

where people got punished by Allah,

00:06:42--> 00:06:43

that place is not a place that is

00:06:43--> 00:06:45

supposed to be a destination.

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

Okay. It should be avoided.

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

Now connected to this,

00:06:53--> 00:06:54

Abdullah

00:06:55--> 00:06:56

ibn Umar

00:06:57--> 00:06:57

Akbarahu

00:06:58--> 00:06:59

Ananassa Khbaranafi

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

Ananassa.

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

So in that incident,

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

something else happened.

00:07:06--> 00:07:07

That is when the people with the prophet,

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

they

00:07:09--> 00:07:11

entered al Hajr, which is the land of

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

Thamud.

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

And they did that ahead of the prophet,

00:07:14--> 00:07:16

alayhis salaam, so they reached ahead of the

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

prophet.

00:07:22--> 00:07:25

They drew water out of their wells

00:07:26--> 00:07:27

of the city.

00:07:28--> 00:07:29

Right? They're traveling,

00:07:30--> 00:07:32

so they needed water. So they got water

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

out of the well.

00:07:34--> 00:07:37

And they made dough with it, so they

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

were getting ready to

00:07:39--> 00:07:41

bake, make bread, to eat.

00:07:53--> 00:07:55

So the prophet, alayhi, sallam,

00:07:55--> 00:07:58

commanded to spill the water that they got,

00:07:59--> 00:08:01

And they feed the dough to their animals.

00:08:02--> 00:08:04

And if they wanted water, they should get

00:08:04--> 00:08:07

water from the well that the camel used

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

to drink from.

00:08:10--> 00:08:12

So that water is tainted.

00:08:13--> 00:08:17

Alright. That water is tainted. Otherwise, the prophet

00:08:17--> 00:08:19

alaihis salaam would not have told them to

00:08:19--> 00:08:20

throw it away.

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

Meaning this sin polluted

00:08:24--> 00:08:24

that water.

00:08:26--> 00:08:29

Allah's punishment when it came down, it contaminated

00:08:30--> 00:08:32

that water. You're not supposed to drink from

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

it.

00:08:33--> 00:08:34

So you see the effect of sin?

00:08:35--> 00:08:37

It's not restricted to you.

00:08:38--> 00:08:40

It affects your family.

00:08:41--> 00:08:43

It affects your food.

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

It affects your house.

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

It affects your vehicle.

00:08:48--> 00:08:50

It affects your neighbors, and their sin affects

00:08:50--> 00:08:51

you.

00:08:53--> 00:08:55

And our collective sin affects society.

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

So if you want

00:08:59--> 00:09:02

prosperity in any society, if you want prosperity

00:09:02--> 00:09:03

in your house,

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

if you want health and wealth and blessings

00:09:06--> 00:09:08

and all of that, you don't disobey Allah

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

azzawajal.

00:09:10--> 00:09:12

But you don't go ahead and disobey him

00:09:12--> 00:09:13

and expect blessings.

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

So Allah's punishment

00:09:16--> 00:09:18

and their sin polluted this water.

00:09:19--> 00:09:21

So it's not fit for consumption,

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

at least for not for the believers.

00:09:26--> 00:09:28

And even the food that they made, the

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

dough that they mixed,

00:09:30--> 00:09:31

he said you don't consume it. You feed

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

it to your animals.

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

What's the only

00:09:37--> 00:09:39

water that they could drink from?

00:09:40--> 00:09:42

The water of the camel.

00:09:43--> 00:09:46

That was the miracle of Salih

00:09:46--> 00:09:47

alayhis salam

00:09:48--> 00:09:50

because they told him, right, if you could

00:09:50--> 00:09:51

bring out

00:09:52--> 00:09:54

from this big boulder, big rock,

00:09:55--> 00:09:56

a camel,

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

we will believe in you.

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

So he said, are you sure? And they

00:10:02--> 00:10:04

said yes. And he prayed to Allah aza'udal

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

and that happened.

00:10:07--> 00:10:09

Right? Out of dead rocks

00:10:10--> 00:10:12

comes a living animal,

00:10:13--> 00:10:16

Not birthed in any way, just comes out.

00:10:16--> 00:10:18

And it is said, wallahu alam, that it

00:10:18--> 00:10:19

is of

00:10:19--> 00:10:22

a great stature. A big animal, not just

00:10:22--> 00:10:24

like any regular camel, but it's a big

00:10:24--> 00:10:25

one.

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

And Allah

00:10:28--> 00:10:28

said

00:10:29--> 00:10:31

and told us in the Quran,

00:10:35--> 00:10:37

That is you alternate in drinking from the

00:10:37--> 00:10:38

well.

00:10:40--> 00:10:41

So the animal,

00:10:42--> 00:10:46

right, that camel, which is big in size,

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

has its own day.

00:10:49--> 00:10:50

It drinks from the well,

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

and it is said it used to finish

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

it.

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

That's how big it was.

00:10:55--> 00:10:58

But they could on that day milk it

00:10:58--> 00:10:59

and drink from that milk.

00:11:00--> 00:11:01

So they couldn't

00:11:02--> 00:11:04

take water on that day, but they could

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

the next day.

00:11:06--> 00:11:08

After some time they got tired of it,

00:11:08--> 00:11:09

they killed it,

00:11:10--> 00:11:11

and that was the cause of the punishment

00:11:11--> 00:11:13

that Allah ahsanul send them. So he says

00:11:13--> 00:11:15

he could drink from the well that the

00:11:15--> 00:11:18

camel used to take from, but not the

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

rest.

00:11:20--> 00:11:20

Right?

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

So this again tells you,

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

right,

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

that

00:11:31--> 00:11:32

if Allah

00:11:32--> 00:11:35

loves something, there's barakah in it.

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

And if Allah

00:11:37--> 00:11:37

hates something,

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

less and less barakah

00:11:41--> 00:11:43

resides in it until all of it leaves.

00:11:45--> 00:11:47

So this is something, subhanAllah, to keep in

00:11:47--> 00:11:48

mind

00:11:50--> 00:11:52

that whatever country you are living in,

00:11:53--> 00:11:56

whatever profession we are seeking, whatever company we

00:11:56--> 00:11:57

have around,

00:11:58--> 00:12:00

if that thing is pleasing to Allah,

00:12:00--> 00:12:02

you will see its effect

00:12:02--> 00:12:05

on you internally and externally.

00:12:06--> 00:12:08

And if it's the opposite, you will also

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

see the ill effect of that on you

00:12:10--> 00:12:11

internally and externally.

00:12:13--> 00:12:15

So a little bit of halal has more

00:12:15--> 00:12:16

barakah than a lot of haram.

00:12:18--> 00:12:20

And someone that you wanna marry

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

who has a man

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

but does not does not have striking beauty

00:12:27--> 00:12:30

or does not have overwhelming wealth

00:12:30--> 00:12:31

is better

00:12:31--> 00:12:35

than the exceedingly beautiful and exceedingly wealthy, but

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

who lacks iman

00:12:36--> 00:12:39

because they will lack in their life and

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

in their decisions.

00:12:41--> 00:12:43

And this also tells you about locations in

00:12:43--> 00:12:44

general.

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

That is, if you wanna settle, if you

00:12:47--> 00:12:47

wanna visit

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

a place

00:12:49--> 00:12:52

or inhabit a place, what place should you

00:12:52--> 00:12:52

visit?

00:12:54--> 00:12:55

Where should you live?

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

A place that is more pleasing to Allah,

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

a zawdul.

00:13:00--> 00:13:01

But if you visit

00:13:02--> 00:13:03

or live in a place

00:13:04--> 00:13:05

that displeases Allah,

00:13:06--> 00:13:08

it is most likely that you will

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

absorb that disobedience

00:13:11--> 00:13:13

yourself because that's your surroundings.

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

Right?

00:13:15--> 00:13:16

The

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

following hadith,

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

Abu Huraira

00:13:24--> 00:13:27

reports from the prophet alayhi salatu wassalam that

00:13:27--> 00:13:28

he said,

00:13:42--> 00:13:44

He said, alayhi salatu wassalam,

00:13:45--> 00:13:45

the provider

00:13:46--> 00:13:47

for the widow

00:13:48--> 00:13:49

and the

00:13:49--> 00:13:50

poor

00:13:50--> 00:13:52

is like the who

00:13:54--> 00:13:56

does that for the sake of Allah

00:13:57--> 00:13:58

unlike

00:13:58--> 00:14:01

the one who prays at night at night

00:14:01--> 00:14:02

without interruption,

00:14:03--> 00:14:05

unlike the one who fasts

00:14:05--> 00:14:07

without breaking his fast,

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

meaning daily.

00:14:14--> 00:14:16

The one who provides, earns money,

00:14:17--> 00:14:20

and he spends on and he takes care

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

and he suffices

00:14:22--> 00:14:23

the poor

00:14:24--> 00:14:25

and the widow.

00:14:26--> 00:14:28

So al Armala here mean could mean the

00:14:28--> 00:14:31

widow, a female widow, meaning someone who lost

00:14:31--> 00:14:32

her husband,

00:14:33--> 00:14:35

has no supporter now.

00:14:35--> 00:14:37

It used to be her husband, but now

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

she has none.

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

Or it could be someone who never got

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

married

00:14:42--> 00:14:44

and does not have a supporter,

00:14:44--> 00:14:47

a male supporter. So Armada is a female.

00:14:47--> 00:14:50

So whether married previously or not, she has

00:14:50--> 00:14:53

no one to support her and the poor.

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

So he said if you are the one

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

who is supporting them,

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

taking care of them,

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

earning

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

in part

00:15:02--> 00:15:04

so that they could eat and drink and

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

have a shelter.

00:15:05--> 00:15:07

If you're the one who's doing this, you're

00:15:07--> 00:15:08

like a mujahid.

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

This is jihad.

00:15:14--> 00:15:16

And this is like someone also who

00:15:17--> 00:15:20

prays it care of if someone does not

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

come forward and say it's me who's gonna

00:15:21--> 00:15:23

be taking care of them.

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

How is Allah gonna elevate

00:15:27--> 00:15:28

their need

00:15:29--> 00:15:30

unless He elevates

00:15:31--> 00:15:32

the reward for that need?

00:15:33--> 00:15:34

So Allah is telling you,

00:15:36--> 00:15:38

you need not you don't need to be

00:15:38--> 00:15:40

physically strong to go for a jihad. You

00:15:40--> 00:15:42

don't need to meet to be very devoted

00:15:42--> 00:15:45

to pray every night and to fast every

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

day. If you just spend your money, I

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

will elevate you to those ranks. Are you

00:15:50--> 00:15:51

willing to do that?

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

This is a path that's open for you

00:15:54--> 00:15:55

and for him and for her. Can you

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

do this?

00:15:59--> 00:16:01

And the second reason why this is important

00:16:01--> 00:16:03

in addition to the first which is that

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

what the need

00:16:05--> 00:16:07

is that this is difficult to do because

00:16:07--> 00:16:09

people love their money

00:16:09--> 00:16:10

more than their own lives.

00:16:12--> 00:16:15

Right? Like you are willing to risk your

00:16:15--> 00:16:16

own life for money.

00:16:17--> 00:16:17

Right?

00:16:18--> 00:16:21

So if you're willing to part with some

00:16:21--> 00:16:23

of your money for Allah's sake, it tells

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

you that

00:16:24--> 00:16:27

you are striving with yourself and you are

00:16:27--> 00:16:27

winning.

00:16:28--> 00:16:30

Because it's hard to put your hand in

00:16:30--> 00:16:32

your pocket and come out with money.

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

Right?

00:16:34--> 00:16:37

Now consider how easy it is to spend

00:16:37--> 00:16:38

money on the duniya.

00:16:41--> 00:16:41

Easy. Right?

00:16:42--> 00:16:43

Very easy.

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

It's it's it's masterful how they're able to

00:16:47--> 00:16:49

get our money out of our pockets.

00:16:49--> 00:16:51

There's a new phone coming.

00:16:52--> 00:16:54

We rush we when we buy it. You

00:16:54--> 00:16:57

spend 1,000 on it. You don't think for

00:16:57--> 00:16:59

a second that you don't need it,

00:17:00--> 00:17:01

or a new car,

00:17:03--> 00:17:04

or a trip destination,

00:17:04--> 00:17:06

a cruise, or what have you,

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

or a meal. You go out and you

00:17:09--> 00:17:09

eat.

00:17:10--> 00:17:13

Somebody tells you sponsor an orphan, sponsor a

00:17:13--> 00:17:14

widow,

00:17:15--> 00:17:15

$100

00:17:16--> 00:17:17

a month. $100

00:17:17--> 00:17:18

a month?

00:17:20--> 00:17:21

That's too much. Right?

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

You go out and eat and you spend

00:17:24--> 00:17:26

a $100 easily for one meal. Right?

00:17:27--> 00:17:28

With prices today. Right?

00:17:29--> 00:17:30

$100,

00:17:31--> 00:17:33

150. Yeah. You don't feel the pain of

00:17:33--> 00:17:36

spending that much money. You don't. You just

00:17:36--> 00:17:37

give it.

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

That one night you

00:17:40--> 00:17:42

spend what could sustain an orphan or a

00:17:42--> 00:17:43

widow for a month.

00:17:46--> 00:17:48

Why is it that it's easy here but

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

difficult there?

00:17:50--> 00:17:51

What's the difference?

00:17:53--> 00:17:55

One invisible being. Right?

00:17:56--> 00:17:58

The shaitan. Right? It's right there to tell

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

you that's too much hair, but it's easy

00:18:00--> 00:18:01

hair.

00:18:02--> 00:18:03

So if your person was able to part

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

with his money

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

and you're not getting anything from it, by

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

the way,

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

you know, sending it to a a widow.

00:18:12--> 00:18:14

Maybe if she's close enough you'll see

00:18:15--> 00:18:17

that she is sheltered and protected,

00:18:18--> 00:18:19

that she's smiling,

00:18:19--> 00:18:20

that she's healthy.

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

That in itself gives you satisfaction,

00:18:23--> 00:18:26

but maybe she is so far or the

00:18:27--> 00:18:29

poor are so far, you're not gonna see

00:18:29--> 00:18:32

anything from that money except spending it.

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

But if you remember Allah's reward

00:18:35--> 00:18:37

and how high it can take you,

00:18:38--> 00:18:39

a 100 or $150

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

a month is nothing.

00:18:41--> 00:18:41

Right?

00:18:42--> 00:18:43

Nothing. Is it? Is it something?

00:18:44--> 00:18:45

It's really nothing.

00:18:46--> 00:18:48

So if you want to take something right

00:18:48--> 00:18:49

from this lesson today

00:18:50--> 00:18:51

and from Ramadan

00:18:51--> 00:18:52

this year,

00:18:52--> 00:18:54

why not decide that you should do that?

00:18:56--> 00:18:59

Say I'm gonna dedicate a $100 every month

00:19:00--> 00:19:01

who's not gonna break the bank.

00:19:02--> 00:19:05

Right? And if it's hard, take it from

00:19:05--> 00:19:05

some other

00:19:06--> 00:19:07

expenditure.

00:19:07--> 00:19:09

Take it from here, give it there. But

00:19:09--> 00:19:10

$100

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

a month

00:19:11--> 00:19:12

for an orphan,

00:19:13--> 00:19:14

for a widow,

00:19:14--> 00:19:17

for digging wells, for doing this, for doing

00:19:17--> 00:19:18

that,

00:19:18--> 00:19:20

let your money work for you. You're working

00:19:20--> 00:19:22

for your money. Let your money work for

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

you. Let it work for you when you

00:19:23--> 00:19:24

meet Allah.

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

Right?

00:19:28--> 00:19:29

The following hadith

00:19:29--> 00:19:31

also along the same

00:19:36--> 00:19:36

path,

00:19:37--> 00:19:38

the prophet

00:19:49--> 00:19:49

He said,

00:19:51--> 00:19:51

the one who

00:19:52--> 00:19:54

the caretaker of the orphan,

00:19:57--> 00:19:58

whether his this orphan

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

is a relative of his

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

or a non relative.

00:20:03--> 00:20:04

I and him will be like these in

00:20:04--> 00:20:07

heaven, and he pointed with his index and

00:20:07--> 00:20:08

middle finger.

00:20:11--> 00:20:12

That is if you

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

take care of the orphan,

00:20:15--> 00:20:17

and I will explain what that means because

00:20:17--> 00:20:18

it's more than money.

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

The one who takes care of the orphan,

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

and I

00:20:23--> 00:20:25

will be in Jannah, but not only in

00:20:25--> 00:20:27

Jannah, will be like this in Jannah

00:20:28--> 00:20:30

to indicate how close

00:20:30--> 00:20:32

you be to Muhammad

00:20:33--> 00:20:34

So that's the incentive.

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

So orphans, right, have no protector, no provider,

00:20:39--> 00:20:41

no one cares about them.

00:20:42--> 00:20:43

So what is the thing?

00:20:44--> 00:20:46

SubhanAllah, I wanted to understand the extent of

00:20:46--> 00:20:47

Allah's mercy.

00:20:47--> 00:20:50

These are the weakest in society.

00:20:51--> 00:20:53

I mean, if the state is not gonna

00:20:53--> 00:20:53

intervene,

00:20:54--> 00:20:55

they will be lost.

00:20:56--> 00:20:58

They'll be killed,

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

abused,

00:21:01--> 00:21:02

right, neglected,

00:21:06--> 00:21:06

right, forgotten.

00:21:07--> 00:21:10

Just kids. Who would care about them? Why

00:21:10--> 00:21:12

should anyone care about them?

00:21:13--> 00:21:16

Yet here, Muhammad alaihis salaahu alaihi wasalam tells

00:21:16--> 00:21:18

you, I'm gonna give you the greatest reason

00:21:18--> 00:21:19

for you

00:21:19--> 00:21:22

not only to care, to compete over

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

caring for them, to compete,

00:21:26--> 00:21:28

that he now makes them valuable.

00:21:30--> 00:21:32

Right? This one who had lost his parents,

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

now he's a diamond.

00:21:35--> 00:21:37

Why is he a diamond? Because he is

00:21:37--> 00:21:38

your way to where?

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

Jannah.

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

This boy,

00:21:41--> 00:21:43

this girl. You see see how that got

00:21:43--> 00:21:43

switched

00:21:44--> 00:21:45

from a non

00:21:46--> 00:21:47

or unimportant

00:21:47--> 00:21:48

being

00:21:48--> 00:21:50

into the most important being?

00:21:51--> 00:21:53

This person will take me to Jannah.

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

So if this orphan exists among believers,

00:21:59--> 00:22:00

he will not stay a day or night

00:22:01--> 00:22:02

alone.

00:22:03--> 00:22:05

Somebody will take care of him. Vassal Sahaba

00:22:05--> 00:22:06

used to be like that.

00:22:07--> 00:22:09

When somebody dies and he leaves,

00:22:10--> 00:22:10

children,

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

they go and they compete.

00:22:14--> 00:22:15

I should take care of him.

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

Like an incident with,

00:22:18--> 00:22:20

Ali ibn Abi Talib and one of his

00:22:20--> 00:22:21

relatives. Forgot his name.

00:22:23--> 00:22:25

See, they come to the children of Ja'far.

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

They say I should take care of him.

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

No. I should take care of him. I'm

00:22:29--> 00:22:30

closer to him.

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

Right?

00:22:33--> 00:22:34

Why? There's a reason.

00:22:36--> 00:22:37

So

00:22:37--> 00:22:40

they become the most important in society because

00:22:40--> 00:22:42

they are the most important to Allah Azzawajal

00:22:42--> 00:22:43

because they are the weakest.

00:22:45--> 00:22:46

So

00:22:47--> 00:22:48

two things here.

00:22:49--> 00:22:51

What does it mean,

00:22:51--> 00:22:52

Kafil ul Yatim,

00:22:53--> 00:22:54

and then why

00:22:55--> 00:22:56

does he achieve

00:22:56--> 00:22:57

that

00:22:57--> 00:23:00

status? Kafay Ulul Yatim is not somebody who

00:23:00--> 00:23:01

simply just gives money,

00:23:02--> 00:23:05

which in itself is valuable and important.

00:23:06--> 00:23:09

But Kafi'ul Yatim is the one who adopts

00:23:10--> 00:23:12

this child into his life.

00:23:12--> 00:23:14

So you spend on him,

00:23:15--> 00:23:16

but then you teach

00:23:16--> 00:23:18

him, and you take care of him, and

00:23:18--> 00:23:21

you become like a father, and you become

00:23:21--> 00:23:22

like a mother.

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

Alright?

00:23:26--> 00:23:27

So you guide him

00:23:28--> 00:23:29

and you be patient with him. So it's

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

not just simply money.

00:23:31--> 00:23:32

It's also you.

00:23:33--> 00:23:34

It's also time.

00:23:34--> 00:23:36

It's also education.

00:23:36--> 00:23:38

It's also care.

00:23:38--> 00:23:40

So this is Kafir ul Yeti.

00:23:41--> 00:23:44

Why does he then become so close to

00:23:44--> 00:23:46

Muhammad alayhis salatu sallam? They said to allahu

00:23:46--> 00:23:47

aalam,

00:23:48--> 00:23:49

because of course

00:23:49--> 00:23:51

it takes a lot of sacrifice from

00:23:52--> 00:23:54

you. What do you get from it?

00:23:54--> 00:23:56

That orphan could grow up and forget about

00:23:56--> 00:23:57

you. What do you what do you get

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

from it?

00:23:59--> 00:24:00

Allah's pleasure.

00:24:01--> 00:24:03

I'm spending on Him

00:24:04--> 00:24:05

and it's my money,

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

and it's not a child of mine

00:24:08--> 00:24:10

that I should feel connected to him or

00:24:10--> 00:24:12

invested in his

00:24:13--> 00:24:13

growth.

00:24:15--> 00:24:16

No. For Allah,

00:24:17--> 00:24:19

and I'd be patient with him, when I

00:24:19--> 00:24:21

correct him, and I keep guiding him, and

00:24:21--> 00:24:23

I keep advising him, and why am I

00:24:23--> 00:24:25

doing this? Not because he's a relative, that

00:24:25--> 00:24:28

I'm gonna get much from him for Allah

00:24:29--> 00:24:32

And also because Muhammad alayhis salatu wassalam was

00:24:32--> 00:24:34

like that to the ummah. He was like

00:24:34--> 00:24:35

a father.

00:24:36--> 00:24:38

Muhammad alayhis salatu wassalam was like a father

00:24:38--> 00:24:39

to the ummah.

00:24:40--> 00:24:43

So he was advising them and guiding them

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

and is patient with them. So the one

00:24:45--> 00:24:48

who takes care of an orphan like that

00:24:49--> 00:24:50

looks like the prophet

00:24:50--> 00:24:51

and

00:24:52--> 00:24:54

reproduces what he used to do.

00:24:55--> 00:24:55

Right?

00:24:56--> 00:24:57

So Kafil ul Yateen

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

resembles the prophet alaihis salatu wa sallam,

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

and he emits

00:25:02--> 00:25:03

that goodness

00:25:04--> 00:25:06

like the prophet used to do.

00:25:08--> 00:25:10

And, of course, when we're saying like that,

00:25:10--> 00:25:11

it indicates proximity,

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

not that he is at the same station

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

of the prophet

00:25:16--> 00:25:16

but

00:25:17--> 00:25:19

proximity, meaning very close.

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

Now so here,

00:25:26--> 00:25:27

the following hadith,

00:26:12--> 00:26:12

So,

00:26:14--> 00:26:16

he mentions that he had heard.

00:26:19--> 00:26:21

When he wanted to it said here,

00:26:22--> 00:26:23

build the masjid of Rasulullah

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

Sallallahu

00:26:25--> 00:26:26

Alaihi Wasallam.

00:26:30--> 00:26:32

And it says in the next narration,

00:26:37--> 00:26:39

is his people or some people

00:26:40--> 00:26:41

disliked it,

00:26:42--> 00:26:44

and they favored that he would leave it

00:26:44--> 00:26:45

the way it was.

00:26:46--> 00:26:47

So what is this?

00:26:48--> 00:26:51

Uthman ibn Affan radiyaallahu anhu wanted to expand

00:26:52--> 00:26:53

and renovate

00:26:54--> 00:26:56

the mosque of the Prophet alaihis salatu wa

00:26:56--> 00:26:56

sallam.

00:26:57--> 00:26:59

Right? Now, Umar before him expanded

00:27:00--> 00:27:01

it, expanded it,

00:27:02--> 00:27:03

but he left it the way it was,

00:27:04--> 00:27:05

meaning

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

the material,

00:27:07--> 00:27:09

how it was built, he left it the

00:27:09--> 00:27:09

way it was.

00:27:11--> 00:27:13

Uthman ibn Affan radiAllahu anhu now was gonna

00:27:13--> 00:27:17

expand the masjid, but now renovate it, meaning

00:27:17--> 00:27:19

replace that older material

00:27:20--> 00:27:22

with sturdier material

00:27:22--> 00:27:24

so it wasn't made from mud,

00:27:25--> 00:27:26

right,

00:27:26--> 00:27:27

and palm leaves.

00:27:28--> 00:27:31

No. Now there is gonna be stone,

00:27:32--> 00:27:33

more durable, more sustainable.

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

So now the the shape

00:27:37--> 00:27:38

and the form

00:27:38--> 00:27:41

in a sense of the material itself is

00:27:41--> 00:27:42

gonna be different,

00:27:42--> 00:27:43

and it's gonna be bigger.

00:27:44--> 00:27:45

So some people hated that.

00:27:46--> 00:27:47

They didn't want that.

00:27:47--> 00:27:49

They wanted it to be left the way

00:27:49--> 00:27:50

that the prophet

00:27:51--> 00:27:52

had built it. Uthman

00:27:53--> 00:27:56

wanted to build something more durable and bigger

00:27:56--> 00:27:58

so it can include more people and it

00:27:58--> 00:27:59

can stay

00:27:59--> 00:28:02

and, again, protect people also from the elements.

00:28:02--> 00:28:04

So when it rains, when it's cold, when

00:28:04--> 00:28:05

it's hot

00:28:09--> 00:28:10

right, so he said to them,

00:28:12--> 00:28:14

He said, you're complaining too much.

00:28:14--> 00:28:17

You're complaining too much. What we're doing is

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

good.

00:28:19--> 00:28:20

And I heard the said

00:28:22--> 00:28:24

to that he had said, min bin a

00:28:24--> 00:28:25

masjid and the one who builds a masjid

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

seeking through that the face of Allah Azzawajal.

00:28:28--> 00:28:31

Allah will build for him a house

00:28:31--> 00:28:33

like it in paradise

00:28:34--> 00:28:34

in Jannah.

00:28:35--> 00:28:36

Right?

00:28:37--> 00:28:39

So he wanted to remind them that that

00:28:39--> 00:28:41

expansion, that addition

00:28:42--> 00:28:44

is included in that hadith and that it

00:28:44--> 00:28:45

is something that is good.

00:28:46--> 00:28:47

So

00:28:49--> 00:28:49

this is

00:28:51--> 00:28:53

a reminder for all of us, and I

00:28:53--> 00:28:54

know that

00:28:54--> 00:28:57

you often get reminded of that whenever people

00:28:57--> 00:28:59

ask for donations to build the house of

00:28:59--> 00:29:00

Allah, azza wa

00:29:00--> 00:29:02

jal. But it's good also to

00:29:03--> 00:29:05

try to digest this beyond

00:29:06--> 00:29:06

the requests

00:29:07--> 00:29:09

that you hear. Or we are here for

00:29:09--> 00:29:11

donations, can you donate, Allah will build for

00:29:11--> 00:29:13

you something. What does it mean,

00:29:13--> 00:29:16

right, that Allah Azadul will build for you

00:29:16--> 00:29:16

a house?

00:29:17--> 00:29:19

Is it a house like your own house?

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

What is it?

00:29:22--> 00:29:25

It's beyond imagination. We're talking about palaces.

00:29:26--> 00:29:27

For building what?

00:29:28--> 00:29:30

Now the extent of our

00:29:31--> 00:29:33

desire and hope in this life is to

00:29:33--> 00:29:34

own our own home,

00:29:35--> 00:29:37

And you know it's not always available,

00:29:38--> 00:29:40

but that's what we hope.

00:29:41--> 00:29:42

And not only a hope,

00:29:42--> 00:29:45

I mean, a home, we want also what?

00:29:45--> 00:29:47

If we're honest with ourselves, a big thing.

00:29:48--> 00:29:49

Something big

00:29:49--> 00:29:51

for me, for my family, for my parents,

00:29:51--> 00:29:54

for my progeny. I want something big And

00:29:54--> 00:29:56

maybe that's available and maybe it's not.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

So if it's not,

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

when will you get it?

00:30:03--> 00:30:04

And even if it is,

00:30:05--> 00:30:08

how long will it be for you?

00:30:08--> 00:30:10

How long will you own it?

00:30:11--> 00:30:13

How long will your family live in that

00:30:13--> 00:30:15

place? It's not really yours.

00:30:17--> 00:30:18

So what is the way for me to

00:30:18--> 00:30:20

get a place that is really mine, that

00:30:20--> 00:30:21

is really really mine,

00:30:22--> 00:30:24

and it will never get old,

00:30:24--> 00:30:26

and no one will ever come and take

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

it away from me,

00:30:28--> 00:30:30

and I will always be happy in it.

00:30:30--> 00:30:32

Is there is there a way for me

00:30:32--> 00:30:33

to get something like that?

00:30:34--> 00:30:36

And the answer is yes, but not in

00:30:36--> 00:30:37

this life,

00:30:38--> 00:30:39

in the next one.

00:30:39--> 00:30:41

So how do I get a house like

00:30:41--> 00:30:42

that in the next life?

00:30:43--> 00:30:45

You build a house for Allah here,

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

and the house is for the

00:30:48--> 00:30:50

servants of Allah to worship Allah in it.

00:30:51--> 00:30:52

So if you

00:30:52--> 00:30:54

build a house for Allah

00:30:54--> 00:30:56

or participate in the building of a house

00:30:56--> 00:30:57

for Allah

00:30:59--> 00:31:00

And again, what do you get from

00:31:01--> 00:31:03

that personally? What do you get from it

00:31:03--> 00:31:04

in the duniya?

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

Nothing.

00:31:07--> 00:31:09

Nothing except the knowledge that

00:31:09--> 00:31:11

I'm trying to do this for Allah's sake.

00:31:13--> 00:31:14

I want to be part of a

00:31:15--> 00:31:15

project

00:31:16--> 00:31:18

where people come and they

00:31:18--> 00:31:20

put their foreheads on the ground for Allah

00:31:20--> 00:31:23

a zawdil, where people escape the dunya to

00:31:23--> 00:31:27

this house and they find refuge and comfort

00:31:27--> 00:31:28

in it. I wanna build that place for

00:31:28--> 00:31:30

them. I wanna build a place where they

00:31:30--> 00:31:31

make wudu.

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

I wanna build a place when they make

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

du'a.

00:31:34--> 00:31:36

I want all of that to be recorded

00:31:36--> 00:31:38

for me. I want to build a place

00:31:38--> 00:31:39

where they learn Islam.

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

I wanna play well, a place where a

00:31:41--> 00:31:42

person accepts Islam.

00:31:43--> 00:31:44

I want to build that place

00:31:45--> 00:31:46

for my akhira.

00:31:46--> 00:31:48

Enough with only the dunya the dunya the

00:31:48--> 00:31:50

dunya all the time.

00:31:50--> 00:31:52

How many months have you paid rent

00:31:52--> 00:31:54

in? How many?

00:31:55--> 00:31:57

How men how many months have you collected

00:31:57--> 00:31:59

to pay or to buy a home

00:31:59--> 00:32:01

or to buy a car or to buy

00:32:01--> 00:32:02

this? It's all for the duniya.

00:32:03--> 00:32:05

So how much are we spending for the

00:32:05--> 00:32:06

akhira

00:32:07--> 00:32:08

to visualize in your

00:32:09--> 00:32:11

mind? These these people, they need a masjid

00:32:11--> 00:32:13

in Asia, in Africa, in here, North America,

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

South America.

00:32:14--> 00:32:15

Why not

00:32:16--> 00:32:18

I be part of that so that I'll

00:32:18--> 00:32:20

be building a masjid here and here and

00:32:20--> 00:32:22

here and here so that I will have

00:32:22--> 00:32:24

a palace in Jannah

00:32:24--> 00:32:26

and then all my family could be in

00:32:26--> 00:32:26

it?

00:32:26--> 00:32:28

Why not I do it and dedicate it

00:32:28--> 00:32:30

to my parents who had passed away? Why

00:32:30--> 00:32:33

not I do it or guide people and

00:32:33--> 00:32:35

lead people and tell people about it so

00:32:35--> 00:32:37

that Allah rewards me for it, for guiding

00:32:37--> 00:32:38

them?

00:32:38--> 00:32:40

So you say if you do this for

00:32:40--> 00:32:42

Allah, Azawajal Allah will give you something.

00:32:44--> 00:32:46

So if whenever you find an opportunity

00:32:46--> 00:32:48

to please Allah a zawajal

00:32:48--> 00:32:50

by building a home

00:32:50--> 00:32:53

or a house for Allah, he built it,

00:32:53--> 00:32:55

and you sustain it. Right?

00:32:56--> 00:32:57

And you don't make it

00:32:58--> 00:33:01

for the duniya. I don't care if people

00:33:01--> 00:33:02

know I've donated or not.

00:33:03--> 00:33:05

I want Allah a zudil to know. And

00:33:05--> 00:33:07

the more sincere you are,

00:33:07--> 00:33:09

the more likely that Allah will give you

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

this.

00:33:11--> 00:33:13

So you'll be sincere and you take advantage

00:33:13--> 00:33:14

of that,

00:33:17--> 00:33:19

So let me stop here insha Allah and

00:33:19--> 00:33:21

see if you have questions,

00:33:21--> 00:33:23

because I also wanna give you time,

00:33:24--> 00:33:25

if you wanna make dua

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

or,

00:33:27--> 00:33:28

you wanna just,

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

make your way to

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

the hall, whatever you decide to do. But

00:33:34--> 00:33:34

first,

00:33:35--> 00:33:37

if you have questions, inshallah, let me know.

00:33:50--> 00:33:53

He says in some masjids, people do,

00:33:54--> 00:33:57

collective du'a right after the salah led by

00:33:57--> 00:33:58

the imam,

00:33:58--> 00:33:59

and they do that every

00:34:00--> 00:34:02

salah. Right? Every salah. So they make it

00:34:02--> 00:34:03

into a habit.

00:34:04--> 00:34:06

Now the easiest thing to

00:34:07--> 00:34:09

answer that question for you to think about

00:34:09--> 00:34:12

it is that, is this sunnah or not?

00:34:13--> 00:34:15

Meaning that did the prophet, alayhis salatu wa

00:34:15--> 00:34:17

sallam, do this or none?

00:34:18--> 00:34:19

If he did it, it'd be easy to

00:34:19--> 00:34:22

find out because this would be after every

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

salah.

00:34:23--> 00:34:25

Then you must have a hadith that says

00:34:25--> 00:34:27

that the prophet alayhi salatu wasalam,

00:34:28--> 00:34:29

after each salah,

00:34:29--> 00:34:31

would engage in collective dua

00:34:32--> 00:34:35

and he would lead the congregation in it.

00:34:35--> 00:34:36

Is there such a hadith?

00:34:37--> 00:34:38

Does not exist,

00:34:39--> 00:34:41

which tells you what? That was not his

00:34:41--> 00:34:43

sunnah, was not his habit, was not his

00:34:43--> 00:34:45

recommendation. Like, do we even have a recommendation

00:34:45--> 00:34:47

that we should do this? No.

00:34:50--> 00:34:51

So the best thing to do is what

00:34:51--> 00:34:54

he did, alayhis salatu wa sallam, recommend to

00:34:54--> 00:34:55

people what they should say.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

After salah, this is the dhikr. And

00:35:05--> 00:35:07

so on and so on. Keep reminding them.

00:35:08--> 00:35:10

And that's what he did, alayhis salatu wa

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

sallam.

00:35:11--> 00:35:13

So that's the answer. So it's not a

00:35:13--> 00:35:13

sunnah.

00:35:15--> 00:35:16

What do you do in that? You don't

00:35:16--> 00:35:18

you don't be part of it.

00:35:18--> 00:35:21

You do your own dhikr. You don't engage

00:35:21--> 00:35:21

in that collective

00:35:22--> 00:35:24

dhikr or the collective duha,

00:35:28--> 00:35:30

I mean, what whatever whatever a person may

00:35:30--> 00:35:32

say, say, well, I'm following a medhab or

00:35:32--> 00:35:34

I'm following a scholar or I'm following this,

00:35:34--> 00:35:36

all of us have to go back to

00:35:36--> 00:35:39

eventually say, Taweeb, what is?

00:35:39--> 00:35:41

What is the evidence for it? And I

00:35:41--> 00:35:43

don't advise you to be harsh,

00:35:44--> 00:35:46

right, in trying to tell people that this

00:35:46--> 00:35:47

is wrong or this is right.

00:35:48--> 00:35:50

Try to be wise enough because, of course,

00:35:50--> 00:35:51

if people have been doing this for a

00:35:51--> 00:35:52

while,

00:35:52--> 00:35:54

they consider it to be the right thing

00:35:54--> 00:35:56

to do. And if they are being led

00:35:56--> 00:35:58

by an imam, of course, they think that

00:35:58--> 00:36:00

he's more knowledgeable than you. So you have

00:36:00--> 00:36:02

to be very wise about this inshallah.

00:36:41--> 00:36:42

No.

00:36:44--> 00:36:44

If

00:36:45--> 00:36:47

if you only give if you only give

00:36:47--> 00:36:49

a widow or with children a 100,

00:36:51--> 00:36:53

will I still get that reward? Will I

00:36:53--> 00:36:55

still get that reward because that's the only

00:36:55--> 00:36:57

thing that I can do?

00:36:57--> 00:37:00

And we say, wallahu alam, if a person

00:37:00--> 00:37:01

is has done his best

00:37:03--> 00:37:05

and Allah knows from his intention that he

00:37:05--> 00:37:06

wants to do more but he cannot,

00:37:07--> 00:37:08

then yes.

00:37:09--> 00:37:09

Yes.

00:37:10--> 00:37:10

Because

00:37:11--> 00:37:13

the only thing that is stopping you is

00:37:13--> 00:37:13

that you don't

00:37:14--> 00:37:15

have. And if you had, you would give.

00:37:16--> 00:37:18

So if Allah knows that from a person's

00:37:18--> 00:37:18

intention

00:37:18--> 00:37:20

that I want to do this but I

00:37:20--> 00:37:23

can, but I'm doing what I can, then

00:37:23--> 00:37:24

we say yes, Allahu Alem.

00:37:25--> 00:37:26

BarakAllahu Fik. Absolutely.

00:37:27--> 00:37:27

Insha'Allah.

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

Yeah.

00:37:32--> 00:37:32

Go

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

ahead.

00:37:39--> 00:37:41

Can you repeat that again, please?

00:37:43--> 00:37:44

The orphan?

00:37:53--> 00:37:55

Oh, okay. So if I'm taking care of

00:37:55--> 00:37:56

it, and if I'm spending on an orphan,

00:37:56--> 00:37:59

right, giving money, should I ask, you know,

00:37:59--> 00:38:00

if they are religious or if they are

00:38:00--> 00:38:01

not. Right?

00:38:01--> 00:38:03

If they are an orphan, they're an orphan.

00:38:03--> 00:38:06

Right? I mean, of course, if a person

00:38:06--> 00:38:06

or that orphan

00:38:07--> 00:38:10

is religious or more religious, they deserve your

00:38:10--> 00:38:12

money even more. Right? Because they are more

00:38:12--> 00:38:13

likely to be,

00:38:15--> 00:38:15

pious,

00:38:16--> 00:38:16

productive

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

person in society,

00:38:19--> 00:38:22

but it doesn't mean that the other doesn't

00:38:22--> 00:38:22

deserve.

00:38:23--> 00:38:24

So

00:38:24--> 00:38:26

you could just simply give. You could just

00:38:26--> 00:38:27

simply give.

00:38:27--> 00:38:29

And if you know who the one who's

00:38:29--> 00:38:32

taking care of that orphan, remind them also

00:38:32--> 00:38:34

it's not just about feeding them, but also

00:38:34--> 00:38:35

about

00:38:35--> 00:38:37

their heart as well and their

00:38:37--> 00:38:38

as well,

00:38:38--> 00:38:41

which is, you know, sometimes could be far

00:38:41--> 00:38:42

more important. Right?

00:38:44--> 00:38:46

May Allah accept from you your fast, and

00:38:46--> 00:38:48

may Allah accept your dua.

00:38:58--> 00:39:00

In the quiet moments before Iftar,

00:39:00--> 00:39:02

as the sun dips below the horizon,

00:39:03--> 00:39:05

we reflect on the past 17 years.

00:39:17--> 00:39:20

For 17 years, it's been our cherished tradition

00:39:20--> 00:39:23

to provide daily iftar at Abu Huraira Centre.

00:39:24--> 00:39:26

It's about more than just a meal. It's

00:39:26--> 00:39:29

about the love, unity and warmth we share

00:39:29--> 00:39:30

as a community.

00:39:31--> 00:39:33

But to continue this heartfelt tradition,

00:39:34--> 00:39:35

we need your support.

00:39:36--> 00:39:38

Your generosity can make this Ramadan even more

00:39:38--> 00:39:39

special.

00:39:40--> 00:39:42

Let's ensure that these memories live on for

00:39:42--> 00:39:43

generations to come.

00:39:44--> 00:39:46

Donate now and help us keep the tradition

00:39:46--> 00:39:46

alive.

00:39:47--> 00:39:50

Together, we can make this Ramadan truly unforgettable.

00:39:51--> 00:39:53

Thank you for being a part of our

00:39:53--> 00:39:53

family.

00:39:54--> 00:39:56

and unity.

00:39:54--> 00:39:56

and unity.
