slot machine and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala nabina Mohammed lol early or Sahih ultramarine about a salaam aleikum wa Lai will go to brothers and sisters,

00:01:40 --> 00:02:26

and welcome. I believe this is lesson number five in our study of Surah Al Hadid. We have reached where we kind of covered verse number nine last time. But I want to just touch on a few points before we move on to verse number 10. So in this verse, Allah Subhana, Allah says, who will lead the universe in harmony, I think that you know that he It is he who sent down to his slave, compelling clear science in order that he will take them out or in order that he will take you out from the darkness is into the light. And indeed, Allah regarding you own, his own compassionate and All Merciful. The scholars they comment on this verse, They say that this was the professor alaba said,

00:02:26 --> 00:03:07

is being praised in four unique ways. The first way is a law says who will lead the university to an RD that it is a law, who sent down to the property law matters to them these compelling signs. So the first praise is that the promise of alarmism was chosen by law to receive some special knowledge and guidance, which he then would share with the rest of humanity. Nobody else has been given this privilege, there is only one man and that is Mohammed Abdullah. So along with yourself so this is the first praise that he is the one Allah chose to sit down this guidance to the second is Allah refer to him as add? What is the mean?

00:03:10 --> 00:03:45

slave, yes, some people translate a servant but that's not the correct translation. So which is a harder a slave is known as an art. So by referring to the Process Center as an app that is a form of praise, because it is the servitude, or the submission that the professor Lawson chose to allow that is so amazing, that he becomes labeled as a slave. He is truly believe that the only human being that reached the pinnacle of showing submission to Allah was our product selling on where they will sell them.

00:03:47 --> 00:04:35

Just as an FYI, people will pay him online, his books out the mouth, he spoke about 25 levels of herbal deal of showing submission to Allah. And you show that the professor of law medicine, he mastered all 25 years, thus becoming the greatest slave of muscle power that somebody may say that isn't it a negative thing to be a slave to something else. In response, it is true, it is a negative thing to be a slave to other things, except for one, except for being a slave to a loss of power, because it is completely different. We think about the slave master relationship, you find that usually, a slave to another human being means that the slave will have to do that which he doesn't

00:04:35 --> 00:04:59

want to do. And that which is not in his interest. Usually the master asked the slave to do all types of things for him, and none of them are for his interest. But when you become a slave, a law the only thing Allah asks you to do other things that are in your own interest, the things that will help you to find peace and happiness both in this life and thereafter. Also, when a person becomes a slave to another human being or to money,

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

Or to an ideology? Do they find happiness in their life? People are enslaved to money for example, are they career? Are they happy in their lives? They are not. But when you become a slave of Allah, Allah says an arbitrary line he talks about, that in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find peace and tranquility. So that's slavery to allies, not like a slave to human being. There's many other ways as well. Yes, that when you become a slave, a loss of power, that what Allah

00:05:32 --> 00:05:57

will give you, as a reward for your submission, is incomparable. When you think about a human being and what he can give a person, it has become distinct, isn't it? So on account of being a slave of Allah, it is the opposite of being the slave to anyone else, that is why it is praiseworthy. That is why it's a positive thing and not a negative thing. So the second praise of the processor is that he is labeled as a slave.

00:05:58 --> 00:06:36

The third is that he is labeled as AB D, not just a slave, but his slave. Allow brought the person close to him by saying he is my slave. Yes, and that closeness is captured in what they call the Botha fragment Abdi, he's the slave of his Lastly, not anybody's slave, not just a slave, but was chosen and especially slave. This is three now, the fourth one is the role of the processor. He is described as the one Leoni Joko Minato demartino. The one who will take humanity out of darkness is and bring to light.

00:06:37 --> 00:07:16

Imagine being given that role. But the fact that we are sitting here today, the 21st century in the borough of Redbridge, speaking about the words of a law is a proof that a Protestant alarm did fulfill his duty and his mission to be the one who will bring humanity into the light of a loss of power. Yes, so this is four ways just to go through them together. The first is that he was chosen by a lot to be given this special guidance number two, that he is called a slave number three, that he is called a law slave. And number four, that he is described as the man who will enlighten the rest of humanity so long while he was alone.

00:07:17 --> 00:08:11

Another point about this verse is that law describes his goddess as new light. And he said that he you know, we sent it down. This, it's not a coincidence that a lot chose to say that he sends down his guidance and call the guidance, light, it's not coincidence. There is a, a link between light that is physical, and the spiritual light of a lot. And it kind of goes like this, you see the sun? It gives us light, isn't it? Now the sun, the light comes from when? above, it comes down. And when that light comes down, what does it do to the earth? It makes it grow with plants and flowers, which then give fruits and crops which gives life to human beings, and to the rest of creation. In the

00:08:11 --> 00:08:51

same way, the light, the guidance of Allah, the spiritual light comes down from the sky, the revelation of the Koran, and it gives life to the hearts of the believers. And when you are enlightened by the light of Allah do you end up behaving like a person that is enlightened is law, morally and ethically becoming upright? See the words in the Parana been specifically chosen? Because they are designed to get people to think deeply? So there is a connection between the spiritual light of Allah and the physical light of the sun, and a loss of capitalism? It's more about that verse in the previous lesson. Let's go on to verse number 10. No, one man of enlightened

00:08:51 --> 00:09:45

people feasibility law, what law he authored somehow it will not What is the matter with you, then you do not spend in the cause of Allah, whilst Allah or wild to Allah belongs, the inheritance of the skies and the earth. Again, this is speaking about an encouragement for people to break the attachment to their money and wealth, and to give it for the sake of a loss of power. But this verse is more of a condemnation, that it is an encouragement This is the interpretation and not the way he explains it is the man in Morocco is the man of loan Adobe's What does that mean? It means to say what is the matter with you in a blameworthy way, in a way of scorning people? Allah is angry with

00:09:45 --> 00:09:54

some people, man upon them, oh, translators, what is the matter with you? Allah Toshiko feasability love that you don't spend your money in the sake of Allah.

00:09:55 --> 00:09:59

Like you are doing something which is wrong.

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

You are doing something which is blameworthy and that is being miserly and stingy with your money. Why don't you spend it independent the part of a lot when he landed me in office and now it is can be understood in two ways. The first is Allah to Allah belongs to inheritance of the skies and earth means that it's very interesting. You know, your money,

00:10:21 --> 00:10:24

ultimately, is going to go back to him.

00:10:25 --> 00:10:51

Your money and the money of all human beings and all the riches in this world. Who is going to end up? Where is it going to go back to a lot? sunlight is saying that ultimately your money is going to come back to me? Would wouldn't you want it to come back to me? After you have been generous with it? Instead of after you have been miserly with it, you decided to come back to me anyway, I'm going to find how you spent your money.

00:10:52 --> 00:11:12

Would you like me to find out that you spent your money in my way? Or would you like me to find out you spent it by being miserly ingredient holding your money? Like you decide? This, again, is about the psychology of human being and how they view their money and their assets. Previously, we were told that you are.

00:11:14 --> 00:11:20

Does anyone remember how we understood the word Mr. Club? What do we segment you are almost stuck on acid?

00:11:22 --> 00:11:23

Who remembers the last lesson?

00:11:25 --> 00:11:28

We said we'll start with it could be understood in two ways.

00:11:34 --> 00:11:45

Okay, very good. One way is your agent. He has meaning that you've just been given this temporarily to be used in a particular way. Yes, very good as an agent, was the other way.

00:11:51 --> 00:11:52

Many faces with a monster.

00:11:54 --> 00:11:56

How many is also present.

00:11:58 --> 00:12:28

The other meaning of a stock's love is that the money is not yours. It doesn't belong to it belongs to Allah. And he gave it to you to see how you would behave with that money. Yes. So that's what we were told previously, today. And this was we are being told that there is another dimension to your money. And that is your money is going to go back to Allah. How do you want to go? How do you want it to go back to a law? Do you want you to go back to after you have been generous with it? Or after you have been miserly with it? Yes.

00:12:29 --> 00:12:30


00:12:32 --> 00:13:02

Very good. Yes. This is the rhetorical question that you would want it to go back to a lot after you've been generous with it. The second interpretation of meal offer somehow it without is the way if the casino understood it, he said, that what it means is that because Allah owns inheritance of this world, that if you give something that allows you to replace it, if you give something that allows to replace it, then you have to kind of put that into context, who is saying that he will replace your money after you give it away? We send it

00:13:03 --> 00:13:18

just a license. Yes. So how should that make you feel when you hear that? Put that into context? Imagine? Imagine, okay, you got a call from Bill Gates, okay, because you found, you know, LinkedIn or something.

00:13:19 --> 00:13:36

And he phoned up said, Listen, I'm in America, you are within UK? Will you do me a favor? Here's a guy who lives down the road. And he's going through some difficult times, I want you to go and help him out. I tell you, we'll give you everything you want in America, don't worry, we'll get back to you.

00:13:37 --> 00:13:42

Nobody's says Don't worry, I'll get back to let's let's pretend that you do trust me, we'll get away.

00:13:43 --> 00:13:47

That's assumption, which is you don't worry if you get everything you have in your backup?

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

I'll take care of it.

00:13:50 --> 00:14:00

How do you feel Do you feel by offering the making going ahead and doing you wouldn't it because a guy owes more money than I can count? Basically, he owes money articles, obviously.

00:14:02 --> 00:14:05

If you say is gonna give back to me, oh, no worries.

00:14:07 --> 00:14:10

Now online is saying exactly that thing to you.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:17

That you go ahead and spend your mind. Don't worry, we learn in your office now what you learned, I will take care of you.

00:14:18 --> 00:14:54

I'll put it back in your bank account. I'll give you even more. The thing is when Allah says that he will take care of it doesn't mean you're going to get back the penny amount equivalent. It means you're going to get that and much much more perhaps more than you could possibly imagine. Yeah, so it's supposed to uplift the person that when he hears that ally saying he will take care of me if I do spend more money. It's like breaking your attachment to your money and thinking you know what, let me go ahead and just do this because I'm going to get a lot more back in return was one of the one of my teachers he said that he was telling his young child this he said, you know, if you give

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

money for the sake of love, his child was nine years old, that knowing alone give you back something better.

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

Charlie Simpson,

00:15:02 --> 00:15:10

he said okay, let me go ahead and try this. I like an experiment almost. So there was a fundraiser and he took out his all of his Pokemon again.

00:15:12 --> 00:15:14

And then he was waiting to see what happens now.

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

So after two weeks, he came to his father and he said, Dad, you know what you said was true. said What do you mean?

00:15:22 --> 00:15:36

He said, You said that I'll give you back if you gave your money, isn't it? And I gave nine pounds in the charity fair. The week after I was given 42 pounds. Yes, what does the present and one for my mom

00:15:38 --> 00:15:42

Okay, Mashallah. You see, it is just about

00:15:43 --> 00:15:59

stuff a lot of it has to come down to this experiment, isn't it? Because even if you know you are experimenting, and this is not with full conviction, you are still doing it because Allah told you that this is what will happen to lots of other because generous, more generous in this your jobs. I mean,

00:16:01 --> 00:16:36

Okay, last the women from diverse continues, they are not the same. Yeah, this part of the verse will now seek to encourage us to spend our money by citing the examples of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in a very interesting way amasses layers that we have in common and in public garden, they are not the same. Those who did two things, who spent and fought before and in fact, are not like those who did so after it. Now, who What? What does it mean by offense?

00:16:38 --> 00:16:56

We usually translate this as what offense means the conquest that's used will translate, isn't it? So what is the speaking about? Who what is the fact that those who spent and fought before it are higher than those who did so after it? Is

00:16:59 --> 00:17:00

conquest of Makkah, who agrees?

00:17:02 --> 00:17:04

Is the conquest of Makkah referred to as

00:17:05 --> 00:17:08

it is? This is one opinion, but there's another opinion.

00:17:10 --> 00:17:25

And, you know, I hazard a guess what is also considered the great victory because of its significance in the seal of the purpose of the law, sort of, like because of this thing happening. Everything changed. It was like, the greatest victory in the life of the process of

00:17:26 --> 00:17:28

battle. is not the answer.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:32

I'll give you a clue. It's not a battle.

00:17:34 --> 00:17:37

Was it? migration is not.

00:17:39 --> 00:17:41

Today be okay. Very good. That is also why.

00:17:48 --> 00:18:00

Okay, very good. Yes. So the treaty Moldavia took place in which year was now really interesting, isn't it? The sixth hijiri year, does anyone know that if they did out give you a gift,

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

your fasting, obviously, you'll be

00:18:05 --> 00:18:55

in the 60s at something known as social media to place the treatment for the idea. And what it was, it was a peace treaty. Now, it wasn't on terms that was apparently favorable to the Muslims. In fact, it seemed to disadvantage the Muslims, incredibly, but Allah turned it on his head and referred to as offensive. Why? Because after that treaty was struck, it gave time, like the brother said, for the Muslims to focus instead of on the wall, but on Darrow and so the message of Islam spread throughout Medina and beyond. And many people embraced Islam, to the extent that it is how the great historian of the Muslim said that more people embraced Islam after shall they do that they

00:18:55 --> 00:19:01

had done all the way up until they bill. Yes, that is why it is called

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

the Great conquest. So now the question is in this verse, Allah saying now everyone who has spent and fought before that treaty is oola, aka above adalja. They are on a higher degree than those who did offers Why.

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


00:19:21 --> 00:19:32

Why is it that they're spending a day fighting after the 63 year wasn't as significant and valuable as those who did so before? Yes, the young welding

00:19:34 --> 00:19:35

because they did it.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:39

They did it before the war. What do you mean by that?

00:19:44 --> 00:19:45

Have a think about it.

00:19:46 --> 00:19:48

Who else would give us an answer

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


00:19:52 --> 00:19:53

so they struggled

00:19:55 --> 00:19:55


00:19:56 --> 00:19:57

spread the word

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

Okay, very good. Short answer is that it was more difficult to be to spend a defiant, yes. When the Muslims became dominant and were dominant force in Arabia led many of you want to become Muslim then because now the ship is saying yes. And obviously the people that can't Muslim afterwards from them or even the one. Yeah the hypocrites that did they truly want to become Muslim? No, they didn't. They just wanted the, they want the benefits of becomes Yes. But putting those to one side even the righteous companions that embrace Islam after the fetch, Allah said they are not as good as those that did so before. The reason being is not because of timing.

00:20:43 --> 00:21:27

The reason being is because of circumstances, that it was more difficult to sacrifice your money and your life for the sake of Allah before six h because the Muslims are always under the threat of being annihilated by the polish. Okay. And even before that, like you said, in Makkah, being becoming a Muslim, was very difficult because you'll be disowned by your family, you will probably be persecuted, you'll be driven out of your home, like the migration, etc, etc. Now, what does that teach us as Muslims today? What that teaches us brothers and sisters, is that living in Islamophobic times, but the times that we are living in and sacrificing in these times with our money and our

00:21:27 --> 00:22:11

efforts is more beloved to Allah, then the sacrifice of Muslims who did so in times of ease, like in the times of the feel of it, does that make you feel special? Does that make you feel special that for Allah our sacrifices today are more valuable than the sacrifices of our brethren who lived in times where it was easier to be a Muslim? Now that turns things around into it, doesn't it? Always thinking negatively about what is happening to Muslims and the wars that are being waged in Muslim lands and though it makes the heart very heavy and sad and depressed, at the same time, there is a positive element is low, which is that because of extreme difficulty to be the true Muslim today,

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

there is a greater reward as well. And a greater reward as all we ask them also powder make us of those who truly benefit from these difficult times by you know, sacrificing more for loss of health.

00:22:23 --> 00:23:06

So, the verse layer, so we will come on anthropometry in public, Fatima Patil would thus be interpreted as they are not the same who spent and fought before the conquest or rather the treaty for the BM. They are of a greater rank minella Dena anthropol, in bagalkot, harder than those who spent and fought after he'd been taken out of La made a point he said, You see, it is not about when you became Muslim. Because just because you just because you might have become a Muslim in the earliest of days. It doesn't make you better than those that came after you. And he gave an example. He said, Why did I become Muslim?

00:23:07 --> 00:23:09

Does anyone know which year he became Muslim?

00:23:14 --> 00:23:16

Does anyone know when I became Muslim?

00:23:18 --> 00:23:19

Particularly you guys know you're 14.

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

To be honest, this, this is

00:23:25 --> 00:24:02

knowledge about the zero the first incident is a fundamental as it from the fundamentals, our pa became Muslim, in the sixth year of prophecy. In the six year processes, six years a person has has been a profit on the law. And for at least three out of the six years, he has been promoting his faith in public. I was resisting for six years. In fact, he was an enemy for six years. a devout enemy. And then Allah God is hot. Now, from the list of the Greatest men, the first is the process of them after him comes who

00:24:03 --> 00:24:05

are workers? Who comes next?

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


00:24:11 --> 00:24:12

Who comes next?

00:24:13 --> 00:24:40

an alpha and who comes next? I'll do the long term edge value. Now, if you look at it in terms of timing, which way should it be around? Who becomes Muslim first? There was an opinion Some say it was added on the lotto some says Oh, so at least they should be like this. Right. But it's not. It's a worker. And then Irma, who became Muslim after I Lee, and earth man.

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

As soon as we It's strange, isn't it?

00:24:44 --> 00:25:00

But why? See a footnote here? No one is saying well below that the other companions are being put down. No way. We are saying they are all great, but from them, some are greater than others. That is

00:25:00 --> 00:25:09

versus saying cooler, he can abajo Dodger, they all have a greater rank. Is that clear? So why is it that he is a backer and then army

00:25:11 --> 00:25:14

when I became Muslim after the other after all three of them.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:55

The reason is because of sacrifice. See, it is about how much you sacrifice that gets you the brand before lots of hands a lot about the timing of use. Now, you see, that is why it goes back to normal, as Matt and Ollie are the main because unseco bottom two things I mentioned, how much they spent, and how much they fought for the sake of the loss of powder. And again, that teaches us a lesson that even if this is the craziest thing, even if you can't became Muslim a day before you died. Imagine that. And do you know anyone who became yesterday for the dead?

00:25:58 --> 00:26:05

Last the two years ago, there was an elderly English man who became Muslim at the age of 83 years old.

00:26:06 --> 00:26:11

And a lot of his best to be still alive right now. He became Muslim at the end of his life.

00:26:12 --> 00:26:27

Now, is it possible that in the year that he lived as a Muslim that he could outdo another Muslim who grew up as a Muslim and lived as a Muslim for their whole life? Is it possible Yes or no?

00:26:28 --> 00:26:33

How is it possible? He's got 83 years on his account he's got two years on his guy.

00:26:34 --> 00:26:35

Where did the math go wrong?

00:26:36 --> 00:26:38

What are you basically also on

00:26:41 --> 00:26:47

he became Muslim the day before he died. Did you say he can outdo Sony became Muslim and was a Muslim from the day he was born? How?

00:26:49 --> 00:26:55

Okay, so all my sins are forgiven? Is there any other reason why I could do this one?

00:26:58 --> 00:26:58


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

I realize I'm here not to get okay. You know what to give up? Isn't it? I mean, if you're at three years, and we talk about ingrained habits in human behavior at three years, let's say of worshipping the cross or worshipping an idol or whatever, and then to how difficult must have been you know, after a series of bowing down to the cross to say forget the cross them and allow them to Alanna honestly, really difficult isn't.

00:27:29 --> 00:28:02

And everything else in life, you're prepared to just change it for the sake of Allah. So it is not about them, how long you are Muslim, but it is how much you sacrifice when you are Muslim. That's what it's coming down to. Yeah. And this goes in line with the message of the soul, which is about what heavy iron and how Allah sent it down to be used. feasts of Eden. And peace of Eden is all about what sacrifices it is yes. Then the verse ends could not walk who knows why the Lord

00:28:04 --> 00:28:33

and all of them those who became Muslim before and fought and spent and those who are after all of them were the longer has never Allah has promised us now what does that mean? It is the superlative it means the very best. See, Allah never said I'm not going to give these ones anything. Allah said I'm going to give them all the very best. But even though they get the very best from amongst them, some are better than others. Does that make sense? And the opposite is true as well. This is also very important that

00:28:35 --> 00:28:37

all non Muslims are not the same.

00:28:39 --> 00:28:40

If someone is a calf, it

00:28:41 --> 00:28:49

doesn't mean that every single calf is the same in the sight of Allah. Or is it that some are better than others? What do you think?

00:28:50 --> 00:28:54

Do you think some are better than others? What do you think? No, they're all the same. all

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

the kinks are better than others. What is your proof?

00:29:01 --> 00:29:04

What is your proof to say some go far better than others?

00:29:09 --> 00:29:15

Okay, so some do charity work some of philanthropists etc, etc. Why do you prefer the Parana?

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


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

okay, before Ottomans was the Christians and Jews, the first of those believers

00:29:30 --> 00:29:32

which PowerPoint only be really nice.

00:29:34 --> 00:29:44

Okay, I know you're getting I don't know what you're getting at. But anything a bit more clear. What am I for the life of the processor? Um, do you have any examples of some kuffar being better than others?

00:29:45 --> 00:29:46


00:29:47 --> 00:29:53

is uncle? Yes, very good. You're going to say something about them. You can say something. Our body

00:29:54 --> 00:29:59

our body is not likable journalism. No, it's not

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

Hold on. It is not like a virgin. See our body he represents one end of the spectrum and Abuja he represents the other spectrum. All of them are under the bracket of Kufa, no doubt about it. But is about our lips punishment in the Hellfire going to be like that I will dance. It is not the person told us the punishment Prabhupada Do you know what it is? He said

00:30:23 --> 00:30:43

that on account of my uncle This is paraphrasing on account of Martin cause support of my cause. He will get the lowest punishment in the whole file. And then he described that he said the lowest punishment in the whole file is to have to wear sandals made of fire that are so hot that it makes the brain boil in the scope.

00:30:44 --> 00:30:53

This provides to an athlete how difficult he must have been for the profit and loss and who cried when his uncle died to tell us that Halley's

00:30:54 --> 00:31:05

it must have tore him up in sight. But he always spoke the truth so long, so yes, so every non Muslim is not the same. How does that help? How does that?

00:31:07 --> 00:31:37

How should that affect us? Or just like the process I used to work with couples bar lib? to help the cause with snap so too can Muslims in the 21st century, work alongside non Muslims who are like about our lives today? to help the further mature Islam? Does that make sense? So if someone says to you, why are you helping? Why are you working with a non Muslim to maybe for a charitable cause? Is like I forgot some Hallo the name of

00:31:38 --> 00:31:46

the that British man who was taken as hostage by ISIS two years ago or three years ago in Syria? What is it?

00:31:48 --> 00:31:48

No, no.

00:31:50 --> 00:31:50


00:31:53 --> 00:31:54

I can't read his name. I don't think

00:31:57 --> 00:32:23

this Yes, there we go. Yes. So this this English man, normally he went to Syria to do some aid work with Muslims. And he was captured by ISIS and held as a prisoner. Yes, they were going to ransom. And in the end, they killed him. There were many Muslims that were campaigning for his release of them were some of the scholars of the UK as well. Some simple minded people said Why are you supporting the release of this cash?

00:32:26 --> 00:32:38

Since Apollo, which Islam? Are you following it? Seriously? This man, I'm very sorry, I forgot his name is Apollo. He went to Syria in the time of war, knowing that he's a white guy.

00:32:40 --> 00:32:46

I think he's more valuable to ISIS than the round by us. And he went there to help the people, the Muslims.

00:32:47 --> 00:32:52

And now you're saying that you brought in which type of Islam? Are you following Panama?

00:32:53 --> 00:33:04

Yes, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sought help and was given helped by his Muslim uncle. I will call him Did he say don't help me. You're no Muslim. He didn't say that.

00:33:05 --> 00:33:48

Yes, people need to develop a sense of maturity about the last month or so understanding. Okay, the last part of this verse and then inshallah the last verse of today's world Alliance, I think will long will be mad Dharma Luna forbidden, and a law is regarding that which you do hobbies. Hobbies is usually translated as all knowing. But there's another name translators, all knowing and that is an alley. What is the difference between an army man and hobbyist, the National said, the difference is, the learning refers to allows knowledge of everything that could possibly be known in this universe. Whereas hubie refers to the things that are hidden and unknown. Like the things people do

00:33:48 --> 00:34:31

in private, that no one else is able to see. All the thoughts that cross people's minds are the secrets that keeping the hearts a must said, and a man knows meaning he knows that which other people don't know about what you do. This verse is ended with this statement in order to teach people that we are talking about be sacrificing, and giving your money and fighting for the sake of Allah and Allah knows your potential. Allah knows the amount of money that you have a law knows the sacrifice that you make in your life, even if nobody else knows it. So Allah will reward you based on that knowledge. He knows how much you have to give for his sake. And he knows the circumstance

00:34:31 --> 00:34:49

that you live in is law. So if you gave 100 and you gave 100, but your 100 was a lot more difficult than that, guys. 100 Allah knows that. And allies happy to reward you more for your 100 then he would for somebody else's, this is what allows knowledge can inspire people to give more as well in difficult times.

00:34:50 --> 00:34:59

Mandela you put into lacandon hacernos Allah, then Allah says on the same note of encouragement, who out they will give

00:35:00 --> 00:35:15

a goodly loan to a loss of Palo Alto. Now this verse can be seen as an encouragement or as a scorning as a reprimand, the way it is understood as a reprimand is as follows. Allah is asking you for a loan.

00:35:16 --> 00:35:52

Why is it allowed us to ask you for a loan? Is it embarrassing, that in order to make you give sadaqa, Allah has to tell you to give a loan. It is like your own mother. She knows that you are very miserly person. And she wants some money. And the only way she knows you will give her money is if you tell if she tells you she will do that. Imagine the day your mother says give me a loan of 100 pounds. How would you feel? You probably feel like killing yourself isn't that my mom thinks I'm not stingy, that she needs to tell me that she would give it back to me.

00:35:54 --> 00:36:05

What have I become? What am I being Am I that my own mother knows that she must tell me that it's alone. In order for me to give her that money.

00:36:06 --> 00:36:28

A loss of power that Allah is speaking to you like this mandate that you put into law Caitlyn hasn't heard from monks you even the wording men deadly, it is a very personal call it is to call out to people individually who amongst you, who amongst you will give a loan to Allah. Somebody may say, why is Allah calling it a loan? Besides in order to embarrass the person?

00:36:30 --> 00:37:15

does Allah benefit from the money? Like a person benefits from a loan? Does he of course not. why they call it a loan. What is the benefit recording the loan, the benefit is in our favor describes is in order to reassure the person that he will get it back. That is it not because the person wants it and needs it or does not want it or need it. You are the one that stands in need of giving away the money but in order to make it easy for you. And last a Think of it like a loan. When you give it you will get it back. Yes. And that also is an encouragement is Oh, it is the other way to see it as encouragement that who is able to give money out such that he will receive back from a muscle

00:37:15 --> 00:37:23

panatela not only will you get it back Allah that says for you by fellow He will make more larva malapa means to multiply something.

You're not gonna get 10 pound now you'll get 20 pound now In fact, it will be triple surge account now.

00:37:43 --> 00:37:51

Allah is saying mobile app and the scholars they say like that mobile phone means to multiply something by 700 times

00:37:52 --> 00:38:43

not double pay triple pay timesing it by 700. What is the proof? They say there's a verse and sort of buckler, Allah says methadone, Edina, use your own ifisa baby like can fit How about the likeness of those who spend their money this cause of a lot is like a seed, one seed, you plant it, and what happens it out comes out a plant that has seven spikes, seven spikes, okay? And Allah says in each one of those spikes, there is corn that amounts to 700 here so if you think about the crops when they grow, like corn, when it grows, you have one seed and it shoots up and then seven spikes come up each side and each spike base cone and if you were to count the amount of * on one spike, you

00:38:43 --> 00:38:48

find that they are 700 what is the lightning say unless you give one pounds

00:38:49 --> 00:39:06

00:40:00 --> 00:40:20

Just give someone your money. And I'll give you a great quote here Allah said who will give a goodly loan I will not give him a big reward I will give him a Nobel awards. Do you see the difference of wording that can be there and Kareem here, the scholars they say the reason is because here always asking you to give up part of which is hassle.

00:40:21 --> 00:40:46

A type of charity which is hassle and hassle limited payments. That is hasn't means good and beautiful in three ways. It is beautiful in the way that what you give. Number two in the way you give by your heart when it's giving. And number three on how you behave after you give them you break them down. Firstly is about what you give you don't give her money away in challenging

00:40:47 --> 00:40:55

you don't even give her a lot of money when charity you give purely halala money. You know the money there's hundreds and Helen sometimes you go past

00:40:56 --> 00:41:05

some of these meat shops and they say harps and hello always seems to be 100 is 100% Oh is 0% seriously, like, I don't want to buy meat that's 99%

00:41:06 --> 00:41:43

of Europe's and I love it. But sometimes you can give money which is 75% Hello, isn't it? Like it has been polluted with some activities that you're not really sure was it helpful or not? So they say the first way a car becomes hassle is that the money is purely Hello, you give 100 pounds, you know you get the 100 pounds from purity Hello, source number one, the source Hello. Number two, when you give you give with sincerity, only wanting to please a lot. And you don't give out of a sense of begrudging pneus. You know, you don't give

00:41:44 --> 00:42:22

half heartedly you give opening this opening. This is number two. And number three, after you give let's say you gave to a poor person for the sake of Allah. You don't follow up that giving by reminding that person do you remember I gave 100 pounds last week? Yeah, very generous of me as a generous person. I seriously I mean, that's one of my good qualities. In an interview. If they ask me the top three things about me, the first thing I do is i'm generous person. Then all the while the person who gave 100 pounds thinking oh my goodness pokin about how much he gave me because it makes me feel this small right now. People do that though, isn't it? After they did give away money.

00:42:22 --> 00:42:24

It's not to boast about themselves. Yeah.

00:42:25 --> 00:42:40

I mean, I'm a very humble person. I'm going to say that I'm going to give 1000 but if you look at my bank account right now, there's 1000 less than there was last week. When you put the math you do the math, put two together. You know people they do that some people do it in a very subtle way.

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

In a very subtle way.

00:42:43 --> 00:42:46

Mashallah, now there's a new Masjid in the village of Ghana.

00:42:47 --> 00:42:54

Last year, there wasn't that mustard but today there is Mashallah that my sister and I went to Ghana a few times in between but that's what I'm going to say.
