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

He while he was sitting them Allahumma, Luna and pharaoh now and finally my lump dinner was in Illman or Bell and I mean,

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

less than we've talked the last chapter in a book of our recaulk Kitab recap, the last chapter was about the Hubble solid in the death of the righteous.

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

And now we'll move to a new chapter.

00:00:24--> 00:01:05

And this chapter is titled is Babel ma you TOCOM in fitna till Molly will co Leela heeta Allah innama Amar lucuma hola to come fitna Buhari Rahim Allah put a title to the chapter, ma you TOCOM in fitness email, which should be avoided from the fitna of man and the saying of Allah also, he's reinforcing what he is saying that money is fitna, Mal and wealth is fitna. He's reinforcing it by the saying of Allah azza wa jal innama and Wailuku Ola convener indeed, your wealth, your money and your children are but fitna.

00:01:06--> 00:01:09

So the idea

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

is significant.

00:01:14--> 00:01:21

The IR tells us and this is Allah azza wa jal, Japan over to Allah Who knows the reality of everything he says in Burma

00:01:23--> 00:01:29

is nothing it is nothing but they call it to house. It's nothing but

00:01:30--> 00:01:37

so your wealth, your money, and your children are nothing but a fitna.

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

Now what is the meaning of a fitna?

00:01:43--> 00:01:44

It is a test.

00:01:45--> 00:01:54

It is something that tempts you attract you pulls you away from Allah azza wa jal or it has the potential to

00:01:55--> 00:02:01

it has the potential to so something that is a fitna could be something that is evil,

00:02:03--> 00:02:12

entirely evil or something that is a fitna could be something that has the potential to become evil or not.

00:02:13--> 00:02:21

You understand me right, as the potential, but it may not or it could be entirely evil in this case, what is it?

00:02:23--> 00:02:40

So we understand because Allah azza wa jal, panna what to add in order to understand what he's saying, you have to reconcile all the ideas, bring them all together, bring all the Hadith together to understand. So do you understand from this idea that Allah Zota is telling you not to have children?

00:02:42--> 00:02:42

No.

00:02:43--> 00:02:49

Because we know that there are a lot and there are a hadith that recommend having children.

00:02:50--> 00:02:55

So if having children is recommended, how are they a fitna?

00:02:56--> 00:03:07

So we understand then that they're not evil. Children are not evil time a fitna that is evil, but has the potential to become evil. How what do they do?

00:03:09--> 00:03:12

What they do is that because you love them so much.

00:03:13--> 00:04:00

You may obey this obey Allah because of them, because of the love that they have. You have for them, see you earn haram to feed them, or to secure the future. Or because they want things that you cannot afford. Or you feel so bad for them. I mean, have you loved someone so much that when they ask you for something, and you know what's wrong for them, you still give it to them? Right? You know, when your son comes and tells you I want I want a video game. I want to play games online. And you just can't bear the fact that he looks so sad. So he says okay, because you only want to see him happy. See you give him what you think will make them happy though. This is not good for them. So

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

that's the top of fitna where you will dis obey Allah and do what is not in their best interest because your love for them.

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

So if you allow your child

00:04:13--> 00:04:29

they can tempt you and take you away from Allah azza wa jal or your child can be the greatest asset. Don't you see that Ibrahim Alayhi Salatu was Salam ala Nabina Salatu was Salam that he asked Allah for children.

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

He wasn't asking Allah for something evil. And Zakariya asked Allah for you here at a Hema Salah and they became the greatest acid after their death because they are prophets of Allah. So it depends on what you do with your child. They could be someone that they take you away from Allah and into hellfire indeed, or that they take you to Jenna and they are the people who when you leave this earth, the only ones who remember you and make dua

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

for you. So which ones are they going to be depends on how you raise them. So fitna here is a test and so is money. So what do we say the money is evil in itself? Who says no? Is money then? Good in itself? He say no, it's a fitna.

00:05:20--> 00:06:03

So it depends on what you do with it. So if you take it, and you please Allah with it, and you use it for your needs, and you support and suffice your family and your parents and you give the poor and you initiate good projects and you spend it on people who love Allah azza wa jal seekers of knowledge do our you know curing the sick then this is the greatest aid for you and for your Eman. But if you take it and it ruins your life, you only worried about it as we will see right now then it will destroy your life. So what you're doing with that money determines whether it is a fitna for you or not. Right.

00:06:04--> 00:06:39

So the first Hadith he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kala Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam Teresa, Abu denari, what did hummy Well, totally if it will, Hermes, I know three out of the we're in the Murata Mirada he says sal Allahu Allah he will it will send them misery to the slave of dinar and Adil hum and Khalifa this is a topic clothing will explain um camisa another topic clothing fabric in North Korea Roddy. If he's given he is happy and pleased, and if he is denied, he is displeased and unhappy.

00:06:40--> 00:06:47

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam begins this hadith by saying Teresa misery and that is a

00:06:48--> 00:07:34

misery to him. The one who fulfills these conditions misery to him, meaning he will be miserable. He will be miserable he will perish if this is how he lives. Who is he? Abdo Dena you are dyrham dinar is gold is a coin made of gold. Delhomme is a coin made of silver so you can translate it as the slave of gold and silver or you can translate it the slave of the dollar. It's the same thing because you use these metals to buy currencies used to buy something. So you can translate it even as the slave of the dollar Al Khalifa well homies Khalifa is a type of fabric that is thick that they used to sit on.

00:07:36--> 00:07:48

And alchemy. So is a type of fabric that they use to put on the to wear and it is square and they say it has a lamb it has lines. This is what alchemy so is it as mentioned in other Hadith,

00:07:51--> 00:07:57

the sleeve of dinar and Dirham and fabric.

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

Fabric today could be fashion. Right? How are you a slave of fabric meaning the slave of that fabric that you furnish your house with and you sit on? So a sleeve of possessions? A slave of fancy things? A slave of the exquisite luxury.

00:08:25--> 00:08:29

How are you a slave to all of these things? Do you pray to them?

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

No one prays to dinar and Dirham

00:08:34--> 00:08:42

no one thinks that they are gods. No one makes do out to them. So that's not that top of Obadiah on Schick in it.

00:08:43--> 00:08:56

But it's a type where you are so attached to it that that's the only thing that you think about. It possesses you you don't possess it, it possesses you and it has a portion of your heart.

00:08:58--> 00:09:02

So it has a portion of the love that you're supposed to give to Allah azza wa jal

00:09:04--> 00:09:49

golden Silver has that is not Allah. So you're about it. In the morning, you're thinking about how can I get more? At night, you're thinking about how can I get more when you're sleeping, you're dreaming of all of these things. So your concerns are what I need money on more of it. I need money and more of it. And you're thinking about cars and fashion and clothes and shoes and sneakers and the red that the latest thing and the latest phone and their latest iPhone and the latest. It's constant consumption. That's what you're thinking about. And you want more of it and more of it and more of it. And you're worried about it and you love it. Not just love it, you're in love with it.

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

That's the only thing you talk about. So that type of udia is a small type of schicke in your heart

00:10:01--> 00:10:06

because you're supposed to give that love to Allah azza wa jal, but you give it to the dunya.

00:10:07--> 00:10:17

And you're supposed to give that attention that top of intense attention to Allah, but you give it to the dunya. Now, I'm not saying that you're not going to love new things.

00:10:18--> 00:10:34

But you love them in what? In moderation, right? You're not fascinated and obsessed and only worried about that thing. And the rest of the Hadith explains it. In your lD. If you're giving these things you're happy.

00:10:35--> 00:10:42

We're in LA Miyata. If you're denied, you're miserable. So where is your happiness?

00:10:43--> 00:10:55

Whether it you know, I scored the big deal today whether I got the deal today whether I got a lot of money today, whether I bought something, your happiness is, if you have

00:10:56--> 00:11:09

and your misery is if you lose. And again, I'm not talking about the fact of your average natural happiness. All Hamdulillah I got a raise today once you be happy. Yeah.

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

Oh, I've lost some money today. Won't you be sad? Yeah.

00:11:16--> 00:11:33

But if all of your happiness is about money, and have all of your sadness is about money. And if you're happy with Allah only when he gives you money, and fame and recognition, and you're angry with Allah, when he takes money away from you, then who are you a slave of

00:11:36--> 00:11:50

you're a slave of the money that you receive. And then you are happy with Allah with when he gives you unhappy with Allah when he doesn't give you so you're not really happy with Allah Himself? You're happy with the money?

00:11:52--> 00:11:55

Right? That is, if you only love me,

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

when I give you money, do you love me? Or do you love the money?

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

Is that clear? If you only love me when I give you money, are you in love with me? Or with the money that I give you? It's with the money.

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

And that's why if I stopped giving it to you stop loving me.

00:12:13--> 00:12:38

This way, there's a loyalty to the king. This if there's someone who serves a king, if you understand why it becomes a form of hidden schicke hidden ship, we're not saying the type of ship that is in Ruby, or oluwo. Here No, it's a ship and love and attachment and dependence. There's someone who like mercenaries who will serve the king, as long as the king

00:12:40--> 00:13:04

buys them, gives them money. If he stops giving them money, do they serve the king, they find another king, another rich guy to serve. Right, another job. And there are those who serve the king like a king on this earth as serve a king because they like him. So whether he gives or not, they like him and they believe in him so they serve Him.

00:13:05--> 00:13:34

So the first are not loyal to the King. The second are the loyal ones. So I'm the Denali we're up to Durham is a slave to the money that he receives and how big his house is and how fast his car is. And that's the only thing that he wants his life. And if he gets it, he's happy with Allah or with his life and if not, he's miserable. And that tells you that you should locate your happiness somewhere else other than money.

00:13:36--> 00:14:24

Yes, you will be sad I lost 1000 2000 5000 $10,000 today, but if someone reminds you, you say you know what is this say? Subhan Allah he will hamdu Lillahi wa ala ala Illa Allah Allahu Akbar wa ala Hello La Quwata illa Billah from your heart just say this. And if you say it, you say the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that these things when you say them are better than everything on the face of this earth. If you lost 10,000 By saying these things now you've gained more than those 10,000 Once you feel better, if you have a man you'll feel better. See your happiness is not about how much money I got. Or if you compare yourself to somebody else who has more and you know I can't

00:14:24--> 00:14:52

compete with this person was just bought a car that costs more than this and that no way. I can live that lifestyle and you feel bad about it. Say these words in similar words and feel that a lot as though Virgil had favored you by remembering him and had given you something that the prophets a lot is intimate said, Hey, Roman mattala He ships better than what the earth the sun had risen on this earth because it stays with you in the airfield.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

The second hadith is with the messenger SallAllahu wasallam said

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

Locanda leibny Adam, why DNA minimal lepta Katha Letha. If the child of Adam had two valleys filled with money, he would want a third. What am low Giovanni Adam in the top and nothing fills the inside of the child of Adam except sand, white tube Allahu Alem and tab and Allah accepts the repentance of the one who repents.

00:15:27--> 00:15:39

So this is a characteristic a feature in every single human being, as a human being, don't think that you stand as the exception

00:15:41--> 00:15:42

to man,

00:15:43--> 00:15:58

so that we don't deceive ourselves and say, No, I am different. No, this is a feature and every human being except those who change it, as the last of the Hadith indicates, so he says, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:15:59--> 00:16:02

If you had two valleys filled with, with money,

00:16:04--> 00:16:07

valleys, big valleys filled with gold and silver,

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

would that be enough for us?

00:16:12--> 00:16:18

No, we have that greed. And we want to have more and more and more.

00:16:20--> 00:16:21

And what it will never stop.

00:16:23--> 00:16:30

It will never stop. So if you say I'm have gonna have a million, and then when I have that million, I'll be

00:16:31--> 00:16:38

happy. When you reach the level of the millionaires, you'll keep looking up.

00:16:39--> 00:16:45

And they say, but there are billionaires. Why am I not a billionaire like them.

00:16:47--> 00:17:23

So you'll be unhappy with what you have, even though you have a lot. So you want the next and the next. And the next and every time you get that thing that you think that thing will make me happy. Once you get it, you discover that how am i Happiness is not there. And I need something else new and faster and bigger, a shiny or than the thing that I have. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam tells you about something important about your greed for life and money. It never ends. And you will always want more because it doesn't satisfy you.

00:17:24--> 00:17:33

And if it does not have the, the substance to satisfy you, it means that it does not is not designed to satisfy you.

00:17:35--> 00:18:14

Have you ate maybe once the type of food that you eat it and it doesn't fill you and you eat and it doesn't fill you on a date, it doesn't fill you. Why doesn't it feel you? It's not, it's not nutritious. It's not designed to nourish you. It's just a snack or something like but you keep eating, it doesn't satisfy. And there's another type of food, you eat a little bit of it and you feel fulfilled. Because that is for you, not the other one. So you keep feeding yourself the Dunia thinking, I'd be happy, I'll be happy just when I get this. Just when I get that degree. And by the way, when I'm saying these things, I'm not saying that we should be against that you can get an

00:18:14--> 00:18:57

education and you can indeed be rich if you want. But the thing here is why you're doing all of that. Is it for Allah azza wa jal or for the sake of the dunya if you're doing it for the sake of the dunya think again, do you happiness is not going to be located there. If you're doing these worldly things for the sake of Allah them, they will be an aid and a help for you. So why are you doing it? And if you're running panting after that Dunia this world, it will never satisfy you. It will never so I want to buy you'll keep buying for the rest of your life. And he says what will always only fulfill or fill the inside of the child of Adam, the prophets polysomes had sound

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

meaning till death.

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

You can you got a kind of like moving from the figurative to the to the literal and the literal to the figurative. Because here when you are alive, what fills you? Nothing, what fills your eyes, nothing, you always want more and more. So the profit center moves mostly from the figurative to the literal by saying what fills you sound meaning when you die.

00:19:24--> 00:19:27

Right, when you're buried, sand will fill you.

00:19:28--> 00:19:33

And that's the only thing that satisfies you in a sense that you'll never be satisfied until death.

00:19:34--> 00:19:36

If you don't curb that

00:19:38--> 00:19:53

and we said it's a feature. And it's intense, and it's always there. And that's why the prophets Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah wa sallam says and the way a tubal Allahu Allah Ament and Allah will accept the repentance will bring in.

00:19:54--> 00:20:00

This is Toba will bring in the one who comes back meaning that

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

All of us have it, but you have the chance to

00:20:03--> 00:20:12

overcome it. Repent from it, reform yourself and change that feature. And say, I'm not going to run after the dunya.

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

I'm not going to run after the dunya.

00:20:18--> 00:20:24

I'll run after the akhira. And you can succeed in the dunya. You can have your own business, you can employ a lot of people.

00:20:26--> 00:20:27

But you still be humble.

00:20:29--> 00:20:35

And you still be modest. And in your heart, you believe that none of these things last.

00:20:36--> 00:20:48

My degree My name that I made for myself, the house that I bought, right, when you buy you Be humble also, you don't live in excess. You don't live in luxury, because you know it corrupts you.

00:20:49--> 00:21:27

If this is enough for you, if a modest house, modest clothing, modest car are enough for you, you don't need more so you don't purchase more because you know, the more corrupts, so you stay away from it so that you can stay grounded, you can stay close to Allah azza wa jal, and it does not tempt you, and you don't tempt yourself, it doesn't mean that I can buy a I don't know a million dollar house where I don't need it. But a million million today doesn't mean anything. But at one point, it used to mean something, let's say $10 million house, it doesn't mean that if I have that much money, I can buy a 10 million million dollar house, that I would go and buy it just because I

00:21:27--> 00:21:39

can afford it. And I don't need it. Be humble. So if the only thing that I need is I don't know, what a house with costed a half a million, let's say. And that is enough for me. That's enough.

00:21:40--> 00:21:49

But just to keep yourself close to Allah azza wa jal because Allah will ask you, where did you get that money from? And how did you spend it?

00:21:50--> 00:21:54

And you can't say, even if you get it from halaal I wasted it.

00:21:55--> 00:21:57

No, you will be questioned about it.

00:22:01--> 00:22:05

There are other narrations of the Hadith. There is no

00:22:08--> 00:22:13

reason you know to cover them because they basically say the same thing. Right?

00:22:14--> 00:22:18

And they say you know one of the beautiful sayings about the Dounia

00:22:20--> 00:22:48

say it is like drinking saltwater or seawater, the more that you drink the thirst, the more that more thirsty you are, right. The more that you drink, the more thirsty you are. So there is no way that you can say to yourself if I only have that extra from the dunya then that is the thing that will satisfy me. There's nothing that satisfies from the dinner nothing at all. Right?

00:22:49--> 00:23:38

And over you have Luca what are the Allahu Anhu cada Coonan Raha Amin Al Quran that hadith that I mentioned. He says we used to think or we used to believe that it was poor as part of the Quran had done a zealot and her Kamata Katha until her Gomutra Katha was revealed. So some of the Sahaba were under the impression that that hadith could have been part of the Quran. Right and that's a discussion for another time it's unneeded, but if what I need what from that particular narration is that he said had done is that until the idea of Aloha Kamata Katha was revealed, because al hakam with the Kathal summarizes or sums up what that hadith had said, and even more so Hakuna Matata

00:23:38--> 00:23:46

Katha says with that hadith was saying you are distracted by a Decathlon competition of who has more.

00:23:47--> 00:24:27

So it says that exactly. That is you will always be in competition with other people. And you always would want to have more than what they have whatever it is that you're in competition with. It could be the number of children, it could be how well educated they are, or your title or your profession or your house or your car. You're always in competition with other people. And the more that you compete, the more it distracts you. And the more that it distracts you and takes you away from Allah as though did and it's a never ending competition. hatters are two more macabre until you visit the graves. This exactly says what that hadith is saying.

00:24:28--> 00:24:40

So if you don't want a Cal Thor rivalry and competition in the world to distract you don't compete in the dunya to compete in the athlete era.

00:24:41--> 00:24:48

And again, understand from this does not prevent you from being successful in the dunya but you're not you're doing you're not doing it in competition.

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

Right. If you want to be successful in the Dounia B, but not in competition with its people. You can have a

00:25:00--> 00:25:36

A big tech company, why not you can do that insha Allah. But as long as that does not distract you from your Salah, as long as you perform your Zakah as long as you as just with those whom you employ, and as long as you're doing it not so because you want to be better than so and so and get so on So out of the market is you're doing it because you want to do something useful with your life and make it for Allah Azza Qian, that is good. That's a good noble goal to have, but not if it's done out of rivalry and competition.

00:25:41--> 00:26:02

The next chapter in sha Allah maybe and that will be it in sha Allah for tonight Baba Colina V had an Malou how the rotten halwa This is the chapter upon our of the saying of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. This money is green and sweet. And we'd explained that before green meaning beautiful

00:26:03--> 00:26:30

and sweet meaning tastes nice. So it's very attractive, very attractive to the eye and very attractive to possession. So meaning that this money is beautiful, and it's intensely beautiful. And don't think that oh no, I'll be the one who escapes that temptation of money, stronger men before you fell victim to it. You're not immune.

00:26:31--> 00:27:13

Money is beautiful, and is intensely beautiful. And if you let yourself be lured by it, it will destroy you. So you have to be very careful. And that's why you will find the Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And that Tabea in and sons, they are very careful about how much money they got. And even if they had money, they would always keep a filter a buffer between them and that money. They have the money but they're living humble and modest. And they don't give themselves everything that they desire. No, they keep a buffer between it. And if somebody needs that they would give that money away so that they have but it doesn't possess them and they don't rely on it.

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

And says well, hon Allahu Allah, this is also included in the title of that chapter, the saying of Allah as though Jin Zhu iannelli Nursey Boucher, what the love of desires and temptations had been made beautiful to people have and then Allah as it lists them, but before we go there, zoo iannelli nurse, it was made beautiful, who made it beautiful.

00:27:40--> 00:27:59

So these desires as he Allah has of it says of woman, and children, and piles of gold and silver, and beautiful horses and livestock and crops and farmland. And all this is the beauty or the enjoyment of this life.

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

Who made them beautiful?

00:28:03--> 00:28:08

To say Allah azza wa jal made them beautiful says Xena. Okay, you know that the

00:28:10--> 00:28:35

the one who did that to zine? It's not mentioned who made it beautiful is not mentioned. So they say it could refer to Allah as Zoa did in one sense. And it could refer to the Shaitaan in another sense, refers to Allah in what sense because Allah is the one who made it. Right? Allah is the one who made it beautiful. So who made woman beautiful to men?

00:28:36--> 00:29:02

Allah azza wa jal, right, who made children beautiful and put in your heart, the desire to have them, Allah xuejun Who made these horses and cattle and livestock view? So beautiful crops, the Green, who made all that beautiful? Lazo did so he put the Xena on this earth, this beauty on this, Allah put that Xena and that is a NEMA. But it's also what

00:29:03--> 00:29:22

a test as taught which we said about children, right? It's a test when you have piles and piles of money, so much money that you can do whatever you want with it. Can you imagine with me for a second that you have so much money, there are people on this earth who have that so much money that you can almost do whatever you want.

00:29:24--> 00:29:39

You want to tell me that that does not tempt you that you can buy whatever and go whatever. And you know, be part of whatever group you want to be part of exclusive VIP group, you can be part of that group and feel important.

00:29:41--> 00:29:48

And that is not going to be tempting. So in one sense, right? In one sense Allah azza wa jal

00:29:49--> 00:30:00

made that Xena beautified it. In another sense, the shaitaan did it by what? By making it more attractive than

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

It really is

00:30:02--> 00:30:04

that that, especially the Haram,

00:30:05--> 00:30:09

but making it much more attractive than it really is.

00:30:10--> 00:30:26

Oh, just do this. Just drink that. Just smoke this, just go to this place. It is so beautiful. So there's that a zine that does beautification, that just to pull you in, but in reality, it is really not that good.

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

It's not really that interesting.

00:30:31--> 00:31:15

It's not that tempting, but the shaytaan right, just like a beautiful advertisement. Do you ever do you think really, like if you drink beer, or Coke or Pepsi, you're going to be that happy as the people in the commercial? Are? You gonna have a lot of friends? This they like they do. Right? If you buy an iPhone, right, and you see, you know, they tend to take these images with iPhone and people are dancing and the boy making movies. Do you use your iPhone like that? Or I mean, or if you like someone like me, I have half of the features in my phone I never use and I don't know even about. But when I see that commercial, I think that while I could shoot something like this, and I

00:31:15--> 00:32:03

can zoom like that, and I can see you imagine, but it's not as it's just a commercial like all of this Haram is a one big commercial for something that when you go there you discover Wow, this is a letdown that wasn't really as as fascinating as you told me it is. But we fall for it because the shaitaan is very crafty. And making the Haram really beautiful. And once you get that, once you get that, oh, you'll be like, you'll be so insanely happy. It is not that. And you discover the pain when you actually disobey Allah azza wa jal and the shame of it. And the regret that I've done this, so there is this Zina, and it is there all the time. And it is part of the name of Allah azza wa jal

00:32:03--> 00:32:20

because if you use it, well, it brings you happiness, you feel better, and it's just something beautiful to look at. But at the same time, if you use it in the Haram, it turns out to be a curse, curse in the sense of something that destroys you.

00:32:21--> 00:32:44

And he brings here after that the saying of Amara, or the Allahu Anhu. He said Allahumma inner Lana Sottero Illa nefra Habima z and the hula is your Allah, we have no power except to be happy with what you have made beautiful to us. Allahumma inni as Luca and on fika houfy Happy Yeah, Allah I ask you that I would spend it rightfully

00:32:45--> 00:32:56

so amaro the Allahu Anhu he says, We have no power Yeah, Allah that if you made this beautiful, that when we get it, we will be happy when we receive it. And when we see it, we have no power but to

00:32:57--> 00:33:03

that's the only feeling we have. But I asked Allah that when I have it, I do the right thing with it.

00:33:04--> 00:33:45

So not telling you don't get married, not telling not to have children not telling you not to get a job not to have money in your house and in your hand. But then when you have it what do you do with all of that is if you spend it rightfully you deal with it as Allah wants, then you are safe from that fitna and then you enjoy the blessings of having something that lad made beautiful to you. That is the beauty of it. That is really real name. Real joy is you have something that Allah had made beautiful, and it turns out it is helping you to reach Allah azza wa jal, that is the most beautiful thing that you can have in this dunya and beautiful obedient wife abidi and beautiful children,

00:33:46--> 00:34:29

money that you use to come close to Allah azza wa jal land that you till and you utilize and it brings you to Allah azza wa jal. This is the greatest thing that you can have. And there's a story here in the background, while Omar Radi Allahu Anhu said this, because when Omar in when he was a Khalifa, they brought him the money of Kisara, the jewelry of Kisara and they brought it in a big pile. And Omar all the yellow, I know as the POS cover it up. So they covered it all up. And then when Omata came, and they said uncover and he uncovered it, they uncovered it and others also were looking at all these jewelry and you know, bracelets and rings that had come from Persia, such you

00:34:29--> 00:34:31

know, subhanAllah opulence.

00:34:33--> 00:34:59

And Omar Odilon, who started crying when he saw this and they said, Oh, Janya. Ameerul Momineen Why are you crying? This is something that Allah had given us out of the hands of those who disbelieved in him. He says, I'm crying because when usually typically people receive these things, meaning this type of wealth, they start fighting among each other for it, and transgressing the shadow of the shadow of Allah Khaled and how

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

Bob because of that money that's why I'm crying because he understands the corruption of wealth. He says we are fine. But when we become rich what happens to us? We start fighting over money.

00:35:14--> 00:35:41

Brothers and sisters blood brothers and sisters the fight over money. What do you think? Regular people? What will they do? So he cried out of the Allahu Anhu and then he spent it and then he said this and we yes we are happy to see this but Allah make it so that I spend it rightfully and he said he spent all of it and he gave it all away to Muslims he didn't keep anything

00:35:42--> 00:35:42

so

00:35:44--> 00:35:52

the Hadith the only Hadith here in and it's it's it's really a beautiful Hadith and I think it's a beautiful Hadith

00:35:54--> 00:35:56

so listen to it carefully, Hakeem Oh, no, he's um,

00:35:58--> 00:36:11

he said sell to the BFR attorney. He says I asked the prophets lie Selim and he gave me when I asked him for what? Money. I asked him for money and he gave me for myself to fall Thani. Then I asked him and he gave me

00:36:12--> 00:36:33

for myself too far. Tanya, and I asked him and he gave me meaning three times they asked him for money. And he gave me an he gave me and gave me he didn't say No, as long as the prophet had. He gave, right. Just just appreciate that because not most of us can't do this. For McCall have Elmer or he tells you Hakeem.

00:36:34--> 00:36:43

Now the instruction comes not not now the gem is going to come and shall listen to it. Yeah. Hakeem. This money is how the rotten hula

00:36:44--> 00:36:54

is green and view. It's sweet meaning it's beautiful. It's intensely beautiful. For men who believe enough sin Boudicca Lo Fi, if you take it

00:36:55--> 00:36:58

without being without looking forward to it

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

without greed,

00:37:02--> 00:37:05

okay, if you just take it without that greed,

00:37:06--> 00:37:09

Boudicca lofi it will be blessed.

00:37:10--> 00:37:29

Woman a hurdle will be shut off enough sin and if you take it with greed, while looking forward to it, there will be no Baraka in it. What can occur the cooloola Yeshua and he will be like the one who eats but is never full. While you're doing earlier and the upper hand is better than the lower hand.

00:37:31--> 00:37:32

That's beautiful.

00:37:33--> 00:37:36

This is tells you about your attitude about money.

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

So Hakeem here

00:37:40--> 00:37:44

but and Hakeem in a dozen seat here after this Hakeem never asked for money,

00:37:45--> 00:38:05

never asked for it. And even for everyone, when it comes to Oba No, he never asked for money after. So just just think Subhan Allah just this statement, if you want to understand how the prophets of Allah, Allah, you it was hitting him was amazing, as a prophet, and amazing, as a teacher, you can just say this to someone, and it changes their life.

00:38:07--> 00:38:23

Today, for instance, you hear speeches, and you read books, and they don't change you. But here, you hear that from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and it changes your entire attitude. So he asked, asked and asked, and he said, Hakeem, this money is beautiful, and intense, and attractive.

00:38:25--> 00:38:56

So if you take it looking forward to it, there'll be no Baraka in it. Meaning that you're waiting here, you didn't ask. You didn't ask. But you're waiting for it and you wish for it, and you have greed for it. And there's such a desire for it. And you grab it, and as you grabbed us grab something that you're hungry for. Right? So you grab it with hunger. So if you do that, he said there will be no Baraka in it. So attitude matters. By the way, when you receive money, including your salary,

00:38:57--> 00:38:58

pay it.

00:38:59--> 00:39:11

So don't Oh, I'm just waiting for my salary. And you just want to grab it. You're you should be better than that. Take it just take it for something that you need to use. But your life doesn't depend on it.

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

You're better than that and you're bigger than your salary. So not be shut off enough's. You're not receiving it with greed, and waiting for it. And you can hardly wait for it. No. Why? Because you want Baraka How is baraka? Belay shut off enough. You're not looking forward to it. Yeah, it's coming. You understand, and you needed to pay your bills, but you're not waiting with greed.

00:39:40--> 00:39:43

And when that happens, you're bigger than that money,

00:39:44--> 00:39:46

then there will be Baraka in it.

00:39:47--> 00:40:00

So that is one of the ways to increase Baraka in the wealth that you receive in the world wealth that you have is that you have no greed for it and no dependence on it. You understand what I mean? Not dependence

00:40:00--> 00:40:34

on it. That is this is not my entire life. When will my salary come? I'm kind of I can't hardly wait for it and you're looking at looking for it like a hungry person, you know, looking out look looking at food, he says you are better than that. And then he sells him Alia Alia Hi Rumina dia de su Fleur the upper hand that giving hand is better than the receiving hand. That is as long as you can. Don't be the lower hand, the one who is asking, even when you are in need, if you can afford not to ask, don't ask.

00:40:35--> 00:40:53

And be the one who gives not the one who takes at some point. At some point in our lives, all of us need help. Right? happens. And if you need help ask, but as long as you can afford not to ask and be the helper, not the helpee But the Helper, then be the helper

00:40:55--> 00:40:59

as long as you can assist without asking people for assistance.

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

At one point, you may need to and if you need to is fine, you shall Sahara. But as long as you can do without assistance, do without assistance, but be the person who assists other people. And it doesn't no it does not wait in return for a doesn't wait for anything in return. It does not like I assisted you and now you owe me.

00:41:26--> 00:42:01

Right? I loaned you money and now you owe me. If you want to do it for Allah, do it for Allah and as they say throw it to the sea. Meaning forget about it, do it for Allah. And that's it. Don't wait for anything else from that person. I assisted you not because I want something from you. In nama as I said, Allah says in the Quran, inonotus amo delivered Hilda, we only feed you for Allah's face, down resuming calm we don't want from you just want a shockula we don't want from you to reward us, or thank us.

00:42:03--> 00:42:53

Right? So that's why it takes training. It takes patience, but it can happen. So one of the benefits Santi in sha Allah in this hadith that I want you to just remember, don't look at money with greed and anticipation, including your salary, including the thing that is going to come it's it will come take it and use it. But always feel that you are bigger than that money. And if it doesn't come from here, it will come from there. Allah azza wa jal is the provider it's not the money itself that feeds you, Allah azza wa jal is the one that feeds you. So, this is insha Allah our discussion for today remember in sha Allah, we will change the time of the this hierarchy inshallah to after
