whom the poor Sahaba they complained about the rich Sahaba is with regards to the charity that the rich can give, but the poor can't give. They said to the province, Allah, Allah, they send them they fast, like we fast and they pray, like we pray, we can do that. And we can fast like them, and we can pray like them. Were equivalent in these acts of worship, but at the same time, they can worship Allah azza wa jal, they can journey to Allah through an avenue through a lane through a track that we don't have access to. And they're coming to the province of Alberta sentiment, they're complaining about that. And just to really appreciate how amazing that that that feeling is, you

00:01:38--> 00:02:11

know, when was the last time you were sitting in a fundraiser and you didn't have money and this person is giving 505,000 And whatever amount they're giving, and you are sitting there fuming, you're upset, you're hurt at the notion that you don't have the ability that people right now are worshipping Allah azza wa jal, they are getting rewards in their account for something and you don't have the ability to compete with them in that that is what the poor companions are complaining about to the province of the lighthouse and and that is something that that transferred over to the next generation the tablet in so you have someone like a Muslim and hola and who is narrated that he you

00:02:43--> 00:03:17

ones who came behind them, the ones who came after them are men. Even amongst the prophets, you find this notion of competition the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says to the Ummah to xojo do dilute marry women that are loving and produce many children. Why for in the McCarthy era become Roman numeral cuyama. Because I want to boast the greatest number of followers on the Day of Judgment. Musa it is said on when he meets the prophets, Allah Lyta send them on the day of the launch. Musa alayhis salam weeps on the prophets, Allah light is in them departs and they asked him, Why are you weeping? And he says, this young man was sent after me and more of his Omar wanting to enter

paradise than my own money. Even a little further, you know, the ASVAB of the newsreel of the of the verses of leaders of Qatar was the province of a lady said, I'm told the Sahaba of a man from the omen that lived before us. And he worshipped Allah as he did for 1000 months. Every day he would go out during the day when he would campaign in the path of Allah. And every night he would stand in prayer, and so on this Hobbit of the law on him heard that story. They didn't just, you know, cool story. They were saddened by that. Because this was a person from a previous OMA who was able to worship Allah azza wa jal in a way that they wouldn't be able to because they simply we simply don't

And so as an accommodation for the short lifespans that we have Allah as ADA says, Laila to artificial Allah so you're told us that we have one night that is equal to the worship of 1000 months, this is all and from the beautiful competition and so we learned in Ramadan that not just to do the best that I can, but to look at those who are better than me, and to challenge myself to be better than them.
