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


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


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


00:03:49--> 00:03:50

So is this gonna go online

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


00:04:33--> 00:04:34

started getting into like

00:04:36--> 00:04:37


00:04:39--> 00:04:40


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

this way other way this way

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

no no no problem

00:04:50--> 00:04:50


00:04:52--> 00:04:56

should I start now? Oh let me know in shallow you already

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

So we thought he would handle it now. So that was sent out assuming that he had he or cyber he was sitting, my bad.

00:05:12--> 00:06:01

So we're continuing in sha Allah today with the second part of the explanation of Kitab rezone from sahih Halima Muslim Rahim Allah to Allah. And as a reminder for everybody present here online that we've explained or we tried to explain last time the meaning of zoo we said that this is not a word that is common among Muslims not common enough as it should be. And zoomies basically detachment from the dunya in favor of the fear of taking what benefits you from here for the sake of their and letting go of what is not beneficial and harmful. So anything excessive, anything that presents a burden, a hurdle on the way to Allah azza wa jal would get abandoned and de tach from, that is the

00:06:01--> 00:06:21

meaning of zoom. So nothing if something does not help on the way to Allah azza wa jal, you will have zoomed in it and something motivates you or brings you closer to Allah you will hold on to it that's the essential meaning of zoom. And if we keep that in mind insha Allah the other a hadith

00:06:23--> 00:06:31

okay, I still working is right. Okay. So the other Hadith insha Allah all fall in line to explain that principle for you.

00:06:33--> 00:07:13

So, the first Hadith of the day is with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says yet about Almita last three things followed the dead on their way to be buried to the graveyard. Fair juror is Nan Wei Acaba had to among the three will come back, and only one will stay with them. Yet well, who now we explains what are the three that will follow, it's about who am I, who am I? Who am I, who is family, his money, and his deeds follow him, fire Joe Allahu wa Malou then his day and then his family and his money will come back, they will not stay with him. The only the thing that stays with him are his deeds.

00:07:15--> 00:07:20

So this is the final scene that all of us will encounter.

00:07:21--> 00:08:11

All of us will go through this. And Rasul Allah Alayhi Salatu was Salam wants us to experience before it actually happens, what this is going to be like, so that we can adjust our life so that the final part of our life of our existence on the face of this earth will be a better one. Because the way that you live will influence how you die, and what stays with you. And if what stays with you is beneficial or not, is something that you like and desire or not. So he says, three things will follow. So the family follows, and the family follows for obvious reasons, to bury, to be next to the dead person to make dua for him to give him company as he's answering the angels of Allah

00:08:11--> 00:08:17

azza wa jal, and some people will not have families. So some people will not even have that.

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

So that's the first thing that could follow.

00:08:23--> 00:08:38

The second thing that could follow is your money. Now, not everybody has money to follow them. So some people will not even have money to follow them. Maybe only family. The question here is, how does your Mali money follow you to the grave?

00:08:40--> 00:08:44

Well, of course, it's not all of your money, is some of it.

00:08:45--> 00:09:12

But how does that follow you to the grave? Well, in terms of a car that you purchased, and it's transporting family to the cemetery, that is your money, right? So it follows the clothes maybe that you may have bought them. The jewelry that your wife is wearing, or your wife or daughter is wearing, that is something that you bought, that's your money, it follows to some of it follows you to the grave.

00:09:13--> 00:09:18

And then also, the last one is your deeds, once you've done follows,

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

it doesn't leave you

00:09:21--> 00:09:48

now, after the burial after they stay for some time, the family has to come back no matter how much they love you, no matter how sad they are. They cannot and in fact, they should not stay there. So they come back. Right. And they will remember you and they will sob and they'll cry and they will dream about you and they will wish that you were there but with time, what will happen.

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

They will forget and they have to forget and they should forget Sahai otherwise they live in misery all of their days. So they

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

Have and they should and it's healthy that they forget. But understand that you will be forgotten by the people who are around you. It's natural

00:10:09--> 00:10:48

for you, how about your money? The money that we've explained last time is our obsession as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said Maddie, Maddie, my money, my money, what happened to my money? It's like, if you have investments in stocks everyday you're looking, it went up, it went down, it went up, it went down. You look at your bank statement that hamdulillah it's, I have more money now. Or you're, you're sad because you have less. So you're always obsessing over, oh, the prices of property are going up. It means my investments are great, I can sell my house and we can make a profit. The prices of houses are going down. Now you're sad because it's a loss. So you're always

00:10:48--> 00:11:08

obsessing over your money. So that thing that is central to all of us, he said la salatu salam follows, but also comes back. Because it's no longer your money anymore. Right? It belongs to other people. So the car the house, what do you think this is mine? It doesn't stay with you.

00:11:10--> 00:11:13

Though it is the thing that gave you the most security in this life by the way.

00:11:15--> 00:11:30

And the family does the thing that gives you more security in this life, or at least I have my parents and they do give security. At least I have my children at least I have my spouse. At least I have my house at least six because you have these you feel that you are secure.

00:11:31--> 00:11:49

The Prophet sallahu wa sallam said that they do not provide security when you most need them. When you're alone in the grave, they can be with you. The only thing that gives you security is your deeds. It does not enter nothing enters the grave with you except what You have done good or bad.

00:11:50--> 00:11:59

And in fact, in another Hadith, the prophet Sall Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that after the questioning of the two angels when they ask you,

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

then you will see a man approaching

00:12:03--> 00:12:27

and the figure and how handsome or terrible looking that person is, depends on what you have done. So the pious the believer, he will see a handsome man approaching, dressed handsomely, with a beautiful smell coming emanating from him. And he will say who are you? Because you have a handsome face that foretells good

00:12:29--> 00:12:50

that foretells that you meet you inspire confidence and good when a person sees you Who are you and he says I am your good deeds. So Allah azza wa jal give the good deeds of shape to give that key person company, so he's not alone in his grave. He's not lonely. So he says, I'll keep you company

00:12:51--> 00:13:39

Subhanallah the reflection of what you have done at a time when you need it the most becomes a person or person like that keeps you company, or as if what you have done is terrible. Allah azza wa jal sends a person takes a persona. And that in pious sees a very ugly person with ugly clothing with a very foul smell coming to him. And he says, Who are you? Because you're so ugly, and you foretell ugliness, meaning that you predict that what's gonna come after is ugly, who are you? It says, I am your ugly deeds. I'm your foul, terrible deeds, and I will keep you company Subhan Allah right. So Subhanallah imagine that when you're doing something bad, you're bringing this evil next

00:13:39--> 00:14:16

to you, any haram that we do, we're bringing evil very close to us. This so that becomes our companion. So it's natural that when you die, that that companion would come and join you, as you were bringing him closer to you. Or as if you're bringing the Quran you're bringing sadaqa you bring in the Dhikr of Allah azza wa jal you bringing to that is the thing that is close to you. So when you're alone in the grave, that's the thing that comes closest to you, and it keeps you company so you're not lonely, terrified, right? It's not dark and

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

gloomy. No, you are blessed in the grave.

00:14:21--> 00:14:24

And you can't wait for the day of judgment.

00:14:25--> 00:14:53

So that hadith, any among the things that it teaches you is that if you want to give priority in life, think about the person who's alone in his grave if he were to come back, after witnessing all of these things, what priority would he give to deeds, money or family? Deeds? For sure. Because he would say what I have seen, what benefits me and I've seen what stays I've seen it

00:14:54--> 00:15:00

not then it's not stories or lectures now. I've seen it. So I need

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

need now to secure my future.

00:15:03--> 00:15:07

And my future here is in the grave underground, none in the dunya.

00:15:08--> 00:15:30

Right? Like you say for retirement, why? Because you say when I'm weakest, I need something to support me. I need money when I can't work anymore. Your weakest in fact in the grave, not when you retire, not when you are of old age when you are dead, and in the grave, that's when you are weakest. So how much have we invested for that time?

00:15:31--> 00:16:12

Money is not going to help unless it's money of sadaqa family can help unless they make dua for you, but how much do I can they do? That ultimately, the only thing that helps you after Allah azza wa jal is the thing that you have done underground when you're underground. So prioritize this is the meaning of it. Prioritize your deeds, the good that you do? over money and over family? Not when we say this? We do not mean neglect your family? No. We don't mean don't get married don't have children that's opposite the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu. Silla? No, in fact, you use marriage, to obey Allah.

00:16:13--> 00:16:24

and utilize children to obey Allah as Odin, meaning you use everything that Allah gives you for His sake. So it strengthens your iman and strengthens your deeds.

00:16:25--> 00:16:30

But we see that there is a conflict between money and

00:16:31--> 00:16:34

good deeds, which comes first?

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

Should we good deeds,

00:16:37--> 00:17:22

looking after your money, or salah, looking after your business, or Zakah? They say no obeying Allah azza wa jal, because that's the thing that stays. And if there's a conflict between obeying Allah Zeldin and family, sometimes there is they pull you away from the obedience of Allah as it really could happen. Why didn't you do this? Why didn't you stay away from that, and because he loved them, you have a spot a soft spot in your heart for your children, for your spouse, you'll say, maybe I'll do so you will upset Allah for the sake of your family. We say if there's a conflict, put Allah first and put your deeds first. Because nothing will help you more than what you do for Allah sake.

00:17:22--> 00:18:02

Everything else leaves you. And that's the thing that stays. So if you want something that stays with you start thinking about how much are you doing? For Allah sake, start thinking about how much Salah we are performing, and do and vicar and sadaqa. And Sam, being nice to people, kindness, staying away from the Haram, all of these things matter. So prioritize them as we prioritize the dunya and emphasize them for yourself for your family. teach that to your children, as you teach them anything else. In fact, more than anything else.

00:18:04--> 00:18:05

The following Hadith

00:18:07--> 00:18:27

and there's kind of a story before the statement of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, and it says here, a context. The context is what are the prophets, Allah Sillim sent a boy obey them no genre to get behind, and this is Eastern Saudi Arabia today to collect the tributes of that area.

00:18:28--> 00:18:45

And he said that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had made a treaty or establish a treaty with the people of Bahrain. And he had put on top of them to lead them as a province leader, if you don't have the army. So now there is a treaty between them and Muslims, the people of Bahrain.

00:18:47--> 00:18:47


00:18:48--> 00:19:19

Rami is the Emir and the prophets Allah Islam sends a bully who rock to bring back the jizya the people have behind the tribute what they pay in return for Muslim protection. So Aveda it says, Here came with that money and the unsought or some of the unser got to know that Oh, Aveda came and he had some money with him bringing that money to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. So it says however, also that allegedly Mara Sunni Lehi

00:19:20--> 00:19:31

for Allah masala rasool Allah in Surah, Fatah radula, who said then they prayed federal prayer with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this particular group of the unsavoury

00:19:32--> 00:19:59

and the contexts kind of makes you understand that they usually would not pray in the masjid of the prophets Allah He was salam, they would pray in their local Masjid. So the me at Medina had the masjid of Rasulullah. He Allah is Salatu was Salam, but also local Masjid. So people would pray in their neighborhood mosques, unless there's a need and that they would go and pray with the prophets. Allah is Salatu was Salam. So in federal prayer, they prayed there with the prophets.

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

At least a lot awesome. So when the Prophet left from his salah, they came to him. So the Prophet immediately recognized why they came for the best summer Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Mahina on his smile when he saw them. And this is the good nature of Rasulullah Alayhi Salatu was Salam that this is how he receives people, he recognizes that they are in need, and that they have a need. And rather than be upset, right, with or again, I have to serve people again, I have to listen to their problems. Again, they'll ask me for this and that the chest and the heart of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was very big that he could receive people's demands, and receive their problems

00:20:41--> 00:21:24

and listen to all of that, and yet be very kind and very generous with it. So he saw and he smiled Ali Salatu was Salam and also you know, the way that he receives them and the way that he talks to them is very kind and his very warm. He said, although Newcomb sent me a tweet about obey the Ducati maybe che in the middle behind. He says I think that you've heard that Abu Zubaydah brought something with him from Bahrain. They said actually are a soul Allah he says yes or messenger of Allah. So listen, what he says is absolutely true. Amuro Maya so welcome, Maya Soetoro calm, he says, expect the best and and you will receive what pleases you up Shiro meaning you know, expect

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

the best.

00:21:26--> 00:22:02

You know, and the word app share. If you're interested, expect the best or be happy in a way that changes the color of your skin. You know how when you become happy, the color of your skin changes. So this is what EPS ship is up should mean expect the best anticipate the best with a mellow and hope for what is going to please you meaning Yes, you will get some of that money. Now on the side here, why were they asking for that money? Is it that they were greedy and they wanted more money because they've heard some more of it is coming. They were in need. They needed money otherwise they wouldn't come to ask. So actually they were poor.

00:22:04--> 00:22:13

And then hear that pivotal statement from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says follow Allah he says yes, expect the best to come be it, Nila. You're gonna get some of it.

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

And then he says for laheem Alpha kura. Asha Aleikum. It says and then he says by Allah I don't fear poverty for you.

00:22:23--> 00:23:08

I'm not worried about poverty for you. While I can the actual Alikum and tube SATA duniya la kumkum opposite of Allah mankind acapella combat I what what I feel for you is that an abundance of this rule that will be given to you, a lot of this world will be given to you, as it was given to the people before you fatahna for sue her come at Anna for Sue, and you will compete for it in it as they did previously. What to Lika comb camera halacha tome at will destroy you, as it destroyed them. And another narration it will distract them as a distracted you. So he says it's not poverty, poverty that I worry about when it comes to you. I worry about that you would have too much of the

00:23:08--> 00:23:20

dunya. Because that's coming. And when you have that, what will you do? You'll compete. And if you compete, what will happen? It will destroy you.

00:23:22--> 00:24:03

So that's the really that pivotal part. That's why is part from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he is talking to people who are suffering from poverty, who are in need of money. And when you're when you're in need, the only thing that you can see is I want money. I want relief. I want an exit from that state. Is there anything more terrible than to be in need? Is there anything more testing than to be in debt? And definitely, it's a test and definitely it's a fitna, you agree, being in debt. And being poor is a fitna. Definitely, it's a test. But when you're in that state, you think this is the worst thing that could happen.

00:24:05--> 00:24:09

And you can't sleep. And so you can see that there is something more terrible than that.

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

And you will see people who are rich and they're traveling and they're buying luxurious things and you say to yourself, I wish I am that person, how beautiful life would be if I'm that person, or what I would do

00:24:23--> 00:24:26

have good or evil to be that person right?

00:24:28--> 00:24:46

Even if I get it from haram, it doesn't matter. But let me be that person. Because then I don't have to worry anymore. I don't have to be anxious anymore. I can get whatever I want. I don't have to be hungry. So here are the prophets. Allah Allah adios enemy says, You know what, it's not poverty that I worry about.

00:24:47--> 00:25:00

For you, like now you're four and you're struggling but that's not really the worst and I don't worry about that for you. What I really worry about is that Allah would open up this dunya for you and you will get so

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

When much of it and dunya is far more tempting when you have it than when you don't have it, that's what he's saying. Dunya is far more tempting when you have it than when you don't have it. Because when you have it, you desire more of it.

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

You never say enough.

00:25:19--> 00:25:40

You will never no millionaire, no billionaire will ever say, I have enough. All of us, we have that in us don't think, Oh, it's so and so but not me. Every one of us you have that in you baked in all of us in our DNA. If you have more, you want more. And if you want more, how will you get more

00:25:41--> 00:25:53

from people's hands. They better get get to it before they do. So you will compete. And if you compete, you will destroy others or they will destroy you.

00:25:54--> 00:25:59

And it will distract you from Allah as you are competing and worrying about the dunya.

00:26:00--> 00:26:49

So he's saying yes, it is hard. But understand that the fitna of Lena is much harder. And not everybody survives it. And subhanAllah there's here an interesting kind of observation about how we also think about our own future and the future of our children. Because the prophets of Allah, Allah you Ali was salam to his ummah is like a father to his children. He worries about them like a father worrying about his children. Now, if when you worry about your children, you worry about poverty, will they have enough or not? So for that, what do you do? You work day and night, and you save day and night to save enough for them, so that when you die, they have enough so they don't have to ask

00:26:49--> 00:27:17

anybody or be in need be destitute. And if they don't have enough, or you feel that you will leave them with nothing that will plague you, there will torment you, you think that they will be lost after him? Who will take care of them? Who will save them who will provide for them? And yes, on one hand, you should save for you've met for your family's sake. So they don't need anybody. Yes, that is wise, and that is Islamic.

00:27:18--> 00:27:23

But more so than that more more than saving the dunya for them to save them.

00:27:25--> 00:27:35

The app killer is far more important, rather than thinking how much money do they have? And will it save them you should ask? How much Amen do they have and will it save them?

00:27:36--> 00:27:39

Because if you give them money without email and what happens to them?

00:27:40--> 00:27:49

What happens to them if you give them money, here's all of their money and no email. What will they do with their money? They will harm themselves.

00:27:51--> 00:27:57

They will seek every venue where Allah was so delicious obeyed and spend that money.

00:27:58--> 00:28:06

They'll spend it hard earned money they'll spend it in what displeases Allah azza wa jal because there is no Eman to support that wealth.

00:28:07--> 00:28:09

Whereas if they have Iman and no wealth,

00:28:11--> 00:29:00

either Allah azza wa jal gives the money later, which is possible, right? If there are good people, if you leave behind good kids, and they have Iman either Allah azza wa jal gives them money later. And their Eman protects them from sin or they don't have money later. But their Eman protects them still. And they die pleasing Allah azza wa jal then you've done your job either way. If you leave your family with Eman, then you've done the best. And then if you want to leave the money to then it hamdulillah that's now I'm on top of Nana. But the most important thing that you want to leave your money to family with is Eman. So don't think and spend all your time securing the dunya and fail to

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

teach them about the

00:29:02--> 00:29:23

failed them when it comes to Eman but give them the dunya rather give them both if you can, or Eman if you can't do the bull do both of them. So it's amazing how the prophets of Allah audio Salam is telling the Sahaba now at a time when all of you are poor and we are suffering. That's not what I worry about. I worry about a time when you have all of that money, what will you do?

00:29:24--> 00:29:48

And that tells you that in on average for people, the fitna of wealth is greater than the fitna of poverty. It's not the same for everybody. Some people are better wealthy people than poor people. And some people are better poor people than wealthy people. Some people when you give them money, they'll be thankful

00:29:49--> 00:29:54

and they'll give sadaqa and it does not distract them. But that's not most people by the way.

00:29:56--> 00:29:58

The same person if you make them poor,

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


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

You will protest and be angry and not obey Allah azza wa jal well, so money works for him but not poverty, another person, it's the opposite. Having little little money works for them because if you give them more it distracts them and corrupts them.

00:30:18--> 00:30:34

So here you have to understand that Allah azza wa jal will give you what is good for you and not beyond. And when he asked Allah azza wa jal asked him for the thing that is good for you and it's not going to be fitna. Don't simply ask you Allah give me millions and millions of dollars.

00:30:35--> 00:30:38

Except if you qualify it and say if it's good for me,

00:30:39--> 00:30:51

and make me rich, what if it is good for me and it's not a fitna? But if it's going to be fitna for you don't ask for a fitna say Allah give me what is best for me and take away what it will will harm me.

00:30:53--> 00:30:58

The following Hadith kind of along the same line, emphasizing the same message.

00:30:59--> 00:31:02

The prophets Allah Azza wa sallam says,

00:31:03--> 00:31:12

That's again as a prediction about what's going to come and speak into the Sahaba highlighted the footie Hetalia CONFER is who or Rome or you call me unto

00:31:13--> 00:31:22

a says okay, when the lands of Persia and Byzantine Empire is going to be given to you? What type of people will you be?

00:31:24--> 00:31:54

So again, now, that's a prediction now they don't have any of these lands. And we don't exactly know when the Prophet sallallahu sallam was saying this, the early part of Medina when they were fearing that the enemy will come and kill them inside of Medina, and the prophets, Allah alayhi salam is talking about empires, right? But they had Iman, they had Iman, if the prophet said is going to happen, it is going to happen. He just wait and you will see it.

00:31:55--> 00:32:38

Even if at this time it seems that you don't have the power, or the circumstances may not allow it. If the Prophet said it, it's going to happen. But here the prophet is asking, what type of people will you be? Now I know who you are, but what type of people will you be later when Allah gives you the lands of Persia and gives you the land of the Byzantine Empire? What line of people will you be so Abdul Rahman says, Nico Luca, Amara and Allah we will be as Allah wants us to be. Meaning we will try to be as Allah commanded us to be harder our Euro Dalek, SS or maybe something else. Or maybe you will be you will be something else that an alpha sooner you will compete for MATA has to do and

00:32:38--> 00:32:56

then you will be envious thermadata DiBona, then you will turn away from each other for metabo Aluna. Then you will hate each other for Matan Talia Khun Fe Mr. Keadle mohajir. Enough at that shadow Nevada Hamada record be back, then you will head to the poor immigrants and you will oppress them.

00:32:58--> 00:33:08

So Subhanallah the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam here is in his description, he is describing a process. If you think about it, it's one leading to the other.

00:33:09--> 00:33:19

And is telling you that if you allow it, the dunya will change you until it does that to you. And you will not notice it. Because it does that gradually.

00:33:21--> 00:33:23

You're not going to become an evil person overnight.

00:33:24--> 00:33:30

You're not going to go and kill a person overnight. But the dunya will do that to you, little by little,

00:33:31--> 00:33:54

this brother of yours that you love for the sake of Allah azza wa jal with you allow the dunya to come in between you gradually it will corrode that relationship until eventually you will hate him. It will take time, but that will happen. So when he said, You're going to have these lands, and you're going to have that power, and you're going to have that money, and all of that is corrupting, what will you do?

00:33:55--> 00:34:22

That's a question for all of us. Right? When you don't have a lot of money, you still beginning your life. You still have a humble job, a humble apartment, you don't even have a car or a car that barely runs. And you find that you have humility, right? And you're asking Allah, Allah, Allah give me and this and that you're hopeful. And your neffs is what is a very humbleness is a very, very

00:34:23--> 00:34:59

merciful self. Then Allah azza wa jal gives you money. And the car now is new, and the house now is big. And you have power, and you have say over people, and you can do this and you could shout and you can demand and what happens to yourself, it changes and is very corrupting influence. There is no Kip and there is envy. And there is resentment at what opportunities that you missed. And you look down at Allah's gifts, money changed you. So the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam is saying here it's a process. It says the fruit

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

Certain after soon, you will compete. Meaning there is something that is glamorous and glitters, and attractive, you want it.

00:35:10--> 00:35:16

But you don't want the others to have it because dunya is limited, the resources of dunya is limited, it's at one position.

00:35:17--> 00:35:32

Right? Either you get it or your brother, it's only $1,000, even you have it or somebody else, it's a limited number of cars available, you either get it or your neighbor. So the duniya when you want it, you have to compete.

00:35:33--> 00:35:38

If you love it, it will force you to compete, play if you compete,

00:35:40--> 00:35:43

you will get some, but you will not get others.

00:35:44--> 00:36:00

If you miss some of the dunya what will happen naturally, you'll be envious of those who haven't, because you want it but you don't have it. So competition, followed by envy. If you're envious now, of he who has it, but you don't.

00:36:01--> 00:36:07

What will happen is this to the DA Verona you'll turn away from each other. And then you'll hate each other.

00:36:09--> 00:36:41

Meaning actually start hating him because he has an I don't, and he hates you because you have what he doesn't have, and all for the sake of the dunya. And then eventually said totally gonna LMS Akkadian Maha Julian, you will go to those who have nothing, and you will oppress them because of it. And if you look at the world today, it's exactly summarizes what happens. If a person is powerful. If a country is powerful, they will use that power to extend what they have. And they will oppress those who have no power

00:36:43--> 00:36:53

to take more money of them, to take their homes to take even their lives, or for the sake of the dunya. And if you were to ask him, tell me how much of the dunya is enough for you.

00:36:54--> 00:36:55

It's never enough.

00:36:56--> 00:37:04

The appetite for this world can never be enough. It's a thirst that will never be quenched.

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

And that's why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa seldom is implying in that hadith, that when you have the dunya don't compete. Take from it what you need. Take for it for what you need. But don't compete for the dunya your competition should be for what the era now most of us do the opposite. For the better was insha Allah Allah will forgive we're content with being at the lowest levels of Jannah. It's enough for me, we don't compete for the archaea.

00:37:38--> 00:38:13

But our competition is reserved for the dunya I want better and more. And if you're competing and if you're ambitious, you're praised because you're ambitious for the dunya or Masha Allah, this person is so ambitious, he got these degrees and he got these awards and he got these cars. And it's not We're not against success in the dunya if it's done for the right reasons, but success to glorify yourself and successful more money, and more power and more fame that is evil. Successful these things is evil success to help others. That's beautiful.

00:38:14--> 00:38:40

So we compete for the dunya and that's exclusively our competition, but the prophets a lot he was telling me saying don't compete for the dunya take what you need from it and let go of the rest and take more of that time for the axiata because the accurate is what stays because if you compete for the dunya it will ruin your character and ruin your relationships will ruin your family ruin you and ruin your hereafter.

00:38:42--> 00:38:50

So protect yourself from the dunya and that is the essence of Zune. Take what you need. No one should understand Zod as never get married.

00:38:51--> 00:39:01

That's not good. Because say he does the headin the best of the Tsar, he Dune is Rasool Allah Allah Allah is Salatu was Salam. And he was married.

00:39:02--> 00:39:08

He had children never understand Zote as to mean I should never like food.

00:39:09--> 00:39:36

The prophets Allah Salam has specific meals that he liked. Right? And he never said no liking food is haram or liking phonies, dislike is very natural. But to indulge in eating to be obsessed with it, that is what opposite observed. To indulge in money to be obsessed with it to take more than what you need to hoard money that is opposite of zoned.

00:39:38--> 00:39:44

To use what you have for the dunya and not utilize it for the Hella that's the opposite of zoom.

00:39:45--> 00:39:55

So we have an opportunity to be true zoo had closer to Allah azza wa jal but you say okay, I cannot be that like the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam.

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

So you don't need to be like the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam exactly

00:40:00--> 00:40:48

because we can't reach that level, but you can walk on that path. You can have them as an inspiration. Ally is Salatu was Salam, um, sometimes destroyed, destroyed by people who say, Oh, that's the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam o that he's, he's a, he's a prophet, he's a messenger, he could do these things, we can't, as if that is to exclude him la salatu salam from being an example. No, he is an example. Even though he's a prophet, if you cannot reproduce what he said, or what he did, 100%, he remains an inspiration, try to do 20% of it. And keep him as an inspiration. Try to do 30% Now 40% Now 50%. And always keep him as a model till the day that you die. Never say he's a

00:40:48--> 00:40:51

prophet. So that excludes him from being a model.

00:40:52--> 00:41:38

So you say I cannot be as ahead like the prophets, a lot of us and we say, Will you try? And we try our best. So when it comes from food, don't over indulge in it. How much should we eat? What is the ideal is this is good, because If thought is coming, right? So how much should we eat the ideal part? Ideally 1/3, right? 1/3 for the stomach, especially before Salah 1/3 for the stomach is food. 1/3 is for your drink, and 1/3 remains empty. That's how you start your resume. Right. And sometimes when it comes to food, not all the time, by the way, but sometimes you discipline yourself, you like to eat something and you say, I'm not going to eat it. Just discipline, right just to tip to test

00:41:38--> 00:41:43

yourself. And also to tell yourself that I can say no to you when I want to.

00:41:44--> 00:42:04

So you're not running after food. So now I'm not going to eat this. Now. I'm not going to do tomorrow inshallah. But the discipline, right. And definitely, so within haram, if there is something doubtful when it comes to food, something Haram is absolute Zeus in it. But now when you put this distance, not complete to one, but some distance between you and food,

00:42:05--> 00:42:16

you will realize that you are the master of your body, food is not the master of you. And the same thing with other things, buying new things all the time, right? Sometimes you say to yourself,

00:42:17--> 00:42:18

I don't need this, do I?

00:42:19--> 00:42:26

It's not just buying for the sake of buying. I'm not gonna buy this, why? I'm gonna discipline the self until it No.

00:42:28--> 00:42:37

Okay, the old thing that I have will be sufficient for another year or so it's fine. I can use my phone for another year, I don't need a new phone.

00:42:39--> 00:43:24

A discipline, zoom, be content with it. And sometimes not buying or purchasing the most expensive of things. The brand, the best of the old brands. Simply why? Because you want people to see what you have. Sometimes go lower, more modest. Now, I don't mean in terms of quality. Okay, in terms of what price terms of brand, to what to say what, I'm going to be humble, I'm going to humble yourself. I'm going to teach myself that I don't need these things to make me happy. And I'm going to leave this for the sake of Allah has xojo and maybe maybe if we are strong you see I'll donate the difference for the sake of Allah as though just so that you could sacrifice what you love for what Allah loves.

00:43:25--> 00:44:03

So as Allah Allah, Allah mean or hamara he mean, to give us true served in our life so that we would sacrifice for his sake and for the sake of the earth that I Allah, we ask You that we would love you more than we love ourselves that we love the hereafter more than we love the dunya We ask Allah will allow me to make Rasulullah who Allah is Salatu was Salam, our supreme example and Morrow and makers of those who joined him on the day of judgment, the Honorable al Amin, and in January or hamara, Hamid, was Allah azza wa jal to accept our fasting, we accept our TM to make us of those who continuously read the Quran and benefit from what they read, to make us of those who remember Allah

00:44:03--> 00:44:20

azza wa jal often we ask Allah azza wa jal to make us of the people of Jana to free us from hellfire in the dunya and to make us of the blessed in the earth era, a whole new holy ha That was tough Ebola Do you wanna come on hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Subhana Allah Morbihan dig a shallow Allah Illa Illa and a stuffy Raghava to

00:44:21--> 00:44:22
