Bismillah R Rahman Al Rahim
al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam O Allah Carlin mabou Martin de la demean the BIA Mohammed in while earlier he was so happy he regiment in America cenomar alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
The topic we're about to study deals with a subject that touches every person of us. It's extremely important. Yet, it is also extremely saddening that a lot of us has fell into this harem.
It's an obstacle in the details that may prevent us from entering general
prolong our residency. Our stay in Johanna May Allah azza wa jal
gives us refuge May Allah give us refuge all of us from the hellfire.
Now yesterday we've mentioned the Hadith about the most major sins.
And the first one was a shark. The second one was killing an innocent soul without any right without any legitimacy.
However, in the same Hadith of the seven major sins, the prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam mentioned two major sins and he said Allah His salatu salam consuming Riba. So this is a major sin and consuming the wealth of an orphan, because usually orphans are unable to claim their rights. So you have the upper hand, and you can commit such a transgression without anyone knowing about it. So to begin our talk,
is the perfect religion.
Islam is the only religion from Allah azza wa jal, that has been preserved, and will be preserved till the Day of Judgement, Islam
is the last revelation to all mankind, and to Jean as well. You cannot doubt this fact. So do not anticipate another religion to come, do not wait for another messenger to come, because the law, the Sharia, of Islam is final.
And therefore, we have to understand that the consensus of all scholars of Islam, state that Islam came to preserve five essential things.
One is your religion.
Two is your life.
Three is the safety of your mental health,
the safety of your wealth, and which we are about to talk about. And finally, Your Honor, and this is a bit vague in Arabic is allowable. And they can refer to
your honor in the sense of your wife, your daughter, your mother, all females in your family and it also can
refer to and this is the most authentic opinion to your reputation. So
is the thing that people praise or
criticize. So my reputation if I backbite you, I am attacking your elbow. If I look at your wife, I am attacking your elbow and so on. If I slammed you definitely This is an attack on your area.
On your reputation on your honor, these are the five things that Islam protects. Now, money is the essence of life.
People had written poems on money.
There were songs on money. There were novels on money, there were plays written on money and people.
A lot of them live and die for money.
And this is why Allah azza wa jal describes it in the Quran as a trial. As a fitna, in Nima amar lucuma, Allah to come fitna, verily, your wealth and your children are what a trial. It's a sickness. It's a test. What are you going to do with the money? Or before that? Where did you get that money from?
And this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reiterated and emphasized upon when he said that every
has a fitna a trial, a tribulation, and tribulation of the oma of Muhammad is in money.
Now, don't go far, because we're not going to be very technical, technical, because if we want to be technical, it will take us seriously a few days. Because wealth is important in Islam. When I say money, I don't mean bring gifts or dollars. Money is defined as anything that you possess so your property your gold, your silver, whatever has value for you to sell this is also considered to be money so your car is money as well.
lots of you Mashallah are billionaires,
they are not sitting at ease when the heated this. The This is what the poor people say, money is bad man Israel man is this is this is what you say because you can't afford it. Well, this is not true. Because the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam could have been the richest man on earth. It's sufficient for you to know what Howdy, that gibreel came to him. Peace be upon him and said, Oh, Mohammed Salalah hoists. And if you wish, Allah tells me to turn this big.
neighborhood kozma omeka I'll turn it to you into gold. Just say the word. And the Prophet doesn't did not choose this. He voluntary. Whenever he got the booty award his share of war, it would not spend one night with him. He would all give it away, to the extent that he would not find food to be cooked in his house for two consecutive months. And he is the Prophet, the Messenger of Allah. And if you visit any house of ours, and open the kitchen cupboards, you will find food that would last us for three years. Sometimes we do this, sometimes we throw the food because the date has expired. And we did not did not consume it.
compare us to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, so in a sense,
or billionaires, you are not quite right. When you say that this is what the poor people say, No.
Money is a value in Islam.
And the Prophet said alayhi salaatu wa sallam, no wealth
has benefited me more than the wealth of Abu Bakr. May Allah be pleased with him, because abubaker was sort of the finance minister. No, because he was one of the richest men of race of Makkah. But he spent all of his money for the cause of Allah He bought Bilal
the embassy enslave them as one of the prophet to the extent when Omar used to see Abu Bakar and Bilal walking to go together. He says abubaker is our Senate and he has freed our seat.
Ababa, Christina, what
he's referring to be allowed to be his seat his master his period because of the humility and humbleness of Rami Allah be pleased with him. So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam told us that wealth can benefit and he also said to Allah
Oh hammer, the best of well,
is the one in the hands of a righteous person. Why? Because he's going to use it and utilize it in what is right and what is correct.
So, today, we are to speak about some, and this is the tip of an iceberg. Some of the haraam income,
that Unfortunately, most of the Muslims may knowingly or unknowingly be consuming, be earning and am say, I'm saying that this is the tip of an iceberg because it can literally go for days without end talking about this subject, which is very important.
Allah azza wa jal mentions, consuming the wealth of an orphan.
This is how long But what happens if I do consume it? And is it literal?
Or a figure of speech? So $100
that belongs to an orphan whom I, the guardian of if I take it and I buy cheeseburgers, I'm going to be fat in less than two weeks. But let's assume I do eat it. So is this Hellfire actually are a figure of speech? It is both because on the Day of Judgment, due to the fact that you had consumed something that is how long you will consume Hellfire in your stomach, on the day of judgment, Allah azza wa jal says,
Indeed, those who devour the property of orphans unjustly are only consuming into their bellies fire, and they will be burned in a blaze. So it is tangible. And you will feel that if you do this, the Prophet says AlLahi salatu wa sallam, he who consumes haram money, and his flesh grows from that he will not be admitted to Jenna.
That's an authentic hadith. And the same Hadith
was narrated in a different way. He who has his flesh grown from how ROM
will be worthy of hellfire.
So this is serious. You will not enter agenda says okay, I don't want to go to China. But you will enter higher, this is a problem.
Because if I'm not punished, enough, not not rewarded, no problem. But if I'm punished, this is a big problem. Once you remember that the least person to be punished in Hellfire, the least punishment what is the least least torment is a stone of fire placed in a person's sandals, from the heat of that
stone of fire, his brain boils. So his whole body is conducting heat. And you can imagine what's happening to the flesh to the bone to the nerves to the everything else. And this is the least no one is less than this.
So if Allah azza wa jal forgive every single sin you have committed in your life,
and he wants to punish you for a cigarette that you enjoy after lunch.
Wow, that's good. People Subhan Allah. This is another topic and how
if Allah wants to punish you for that cigarette, this is your punishment, because this is the least torment in hell fire. But what about if Allah wants to take us for the whole nine yards? Then we have a serious problem. Indeed. No one among us is interested in entering Hellfire or even being close to it.
If a drop of room from Hellfire were to be dropped on Earth, it will spoil and corrupt. The food and the drink of the entire humanity won't drop. What about those who drink it in Hellfire every single moment? till eternity? May Allah xojo save us?
Each one of us is so happy, I'm happy. I don't know about you. When someone says chef, make draft for me that Allah pay
Have my debts. And I say, Oh Allah pay off his debts and he calls us the following morning day. Allah paid my debts. And I said, Where's my percentage?
Everybody feels happy when you make dua, and Allah
makes it come true. Because Allah answers your data, whether it comes through or not, we know this. And again, this is not the time to disclose the three types of Allah answering your drug, our answers all of your drug, however, those who fail to consume halaal and they mix or have only how long to eat a lot will not answer there.
In a week Hadeeth though, it is very famous and popular, sad, one of the 10 heaven bound companions sad of nomadic known as sodomy cos he came to the Prophet ashram and said, Oh prophet of Allah, pray to Allah that I become someone who is always answered when he makes you out to Allah. And by the way through the history of Saudi Arabia, because he was that person which strengthens that the Hadith is authentic, all the companions feed it with that said, Listen, do this or I will make dua.
I apologize. This happened with man, this happened with so many companions. So the Prophet gave him and advice Salalah Mario's and he said, Yes at
ma Mk. talkin, Musa Shabbat Dawa. be keen on consuming Hillel. And Amar will answer your drop.
In an authentic hadith in Sahih, Muslim, the prophet alayhi salatu salam tells us about a traveler. And we know that the door of a traveler is is accepted. And he has dusty clothes and hair. And this is also a sign of those whom Allah answers his they're called. And he raises his hands to the heavens, and also raising the hands for Dora is one of the means of answering your call. He says your job Your job is calling a law by his beautiful names. And this is also an indication or one of the means of getting your Doha answered. However the Prophet alayhi wa sallam elaborates However his he's fed by how long he's drink is how long he wears, how long. So how would Allah respond to him?
How would Allah answer his call? This is why the majority of Muslims say, Oh Allah free Palestine. And Allah does not make that happen for a purpose. But the majority of our income is not highlighted. And I'll
study it with you in a very easy manner because this is technical or notes heavy after lunch, no dessert. Maybe it's a little bit difficult, but try to cope with me in Sharla.
First of all, what is the definition of a manual haraam? prohibited wealth prohibited property prohibited money? What is it? There are numerous definitions of it. The easiest and the most convenient to remember is any wealth that you are not allowed to use or to possess. So you may possess it. Okay, I know that taking something Haram is not permissible. I'm not going to best possess it, but can I use it? No, as long as it's Hallam Malhotra, again, you are not allowed to use it. So you cannot own it. And you cannot benefit from it.
And jurors and scholars have a number of divisions. So some of them say, Madden how long or the prohibited wealth can be prohibited for
its own nature.
And it can be prohibited for a description. Not for its nature. Well, what is this? You're getting us confused? I'll tell you don't worry, I hear you. Not that I know the unseen but you know.
So money that is prohibited for its nature, such as intoxicants wine, whiskey, gin, tequila vodka, scotch Black Label, you know these things.
This is how I'm 40
pork, swines meat haraam for its nature, dead meat, an animal that was not slaughtered. It's haram for its nature, setting impurities such as blood, can I go and sell blood or slaughter an animal and collect the blood and sell it or consume it this is totally haram for its nature.
And there are haram things
not for the nature, but rather for the description. So I have $100 I can go and buy the hamburgers that would make me fat or I can give it as a bribe to that official, so you give me the contract.
If I give it to that official, this is a bribe, but the $100 is the same $100 so it is not haram for itself, but for the description that it was given due to something haram expected which is to facilitate the contract and we will speak about
Mashallah bribes in a very quick fashion.
Scholars also divide Hallam wealth into whether it had been taken from you, willingly or unwillingly. One would say, how is it possible that it is haram and taken from me willingly, I'll give you an example. Some airports, I'm not disclosing anything, so that I would not be banned from entering that country again.
airports you you land, and you find this beautiful, gorgeous, shocking, it's not a female, a car.
Standing there, seducing you with its four wheels, with its curves. And you said sapan en la la ilaha illAllah. You look at the car and they tell you pay 500.
And only 2000 will participate. And you may get a chance to win 500 out of 2000. Well, that's not a big ratio, shareholder, I'll take 10
This is called what
this is called an Arabic emrc. It can be called lottery, it can be called gambling. And this is the official Islamic terminology. I'm paying 500 on the hope that I will win 500,000
the price of the car or I lose. So this kind of money that I'm paying, am I paying it willingly, is definitely hope hoping also, Nobody forced me to take it. And by the way, now, this is category one, the Haram things that are taken or consumed willingly from the owner. And I will move on to the unlawful things later on. They're all unlawful, but without the permission of the owner.
The issue of lottery or gambling is so widely spread in the Muslim world. To the extent that people now are indulged in it. They're justifying it. They're making excuses for it without knowing or Lalalalala. I'll give you another example. competitions. So I'm a football player, we have a football team. And we would like to play with other five, six teams, each team puts 1000 trinkets and the winner takes all. This is how long this is how long income This is gambling. If you go and play with a slot machine gambling, I'll give you a bigger example, insurance.
We all have medical insurance, good luck.
Insurance, car insurance, medical insurance, life insurance. All of this is gambling. Now, I'm not going to go into details if the government obliges you to do it.
And if you don't do it, they put you in jail. This is a necessity. I'm talking about the things that you have a choice in share. I pay 1500 ringgits a year and I'm medically insured, to the to half a million. I may get cancer, chemotherapy, physiotherapy, new limbs, bionic hands and, and so Mashallah, with 100 1500 there is a possibility that for 30 years until I die,
I don't use one, bring it out of it. And there is a possibility that the minute I get insured The following day, I consume of
how much this
prohibited and you don't have to be a rocket science a scientist to know this whatever you give if you have the option of winning it all or losing what you put this is gambling. And I'm not going to
hold it here because the time is really running out
dealing and how long this is consuming, how long What do you mean by dealing how long the profits is at least for some it is not permissible for a Muslim to have the cost or the price of a dog meaning dogs are
prohibited to sell and to buy
Did you know this?
Who Raise your hands please yes to be sure. Did you know this that dogs are not permissible to be bought?
Okay, Mashallah. We have like 5% and also cats, you're not allowed to bycatch? Did you know this
Mashallah the watercolor someone is lying.
This is what I'm for you to sell. The Prophet prohibited this, the prophet prohibited? What a prostitute gets for her services. The Prophet prohibited that exam what a fortune teller, a soothsayer, a priest who predicts the future. And I think
it is Ismail mink spoke about this, that Allah does not accept 40 days of your prayer if you consult a fortune teller without believing him. So if you open the newspaper, and look at the zodiacs I'm a scorpion armacao which depending on what Zodiac you are,
and you say Haha, they say that this is going to happen tomorrow Haha, I don't believe it. 14 days your prayer will not be accepted.
I don't believe it yes for two days. But if what happened, or what's written happens tomorrow, by Allah's decree, and this is what they said yesterday, then you have abandoned Islam and you became a Catholic.
And this is the Hadith of the Prophet Allah is the Son of God someone is extremists. This is the Hadith of the prophets. I am a Muslim, don't argue about it a lot. So a lot of the things that are prohibited to sell, these are considered to be consuming hellfire. Based on ambiguity in Islam, it's haram to make a transaction in an ambiguous way. And there are a number of Hadith where the Prophet tells us that
he prohibited by al-hurra ambiguity such as one of them is alula Messiah. This is the prophets words or Sunnah. So if you come to my shop, and I say, listen, all what you see is for one, bring it, providing you touch it, whatever you touch you buy.
So you touch something that is worth nothing, you're obliged to buy and you may touch something that is worth 10. Bring it This is how long and whenever. If I throw anything for you, this is 10 minutes. You agree, I agree, I gave him a tissue box. And it gets too much. We've agreed. So any such thing as
transactions, such sales are prohibited and the list is so long, I don't have time for it.
There are ways that you take a person's belongings without his approval.
So the first one was, by mutual approval, now we're talking about things that are without his approval, such as the most famous thing is
stealing. If you steal from a person, this money is how long you cannot benefit from it. You cannot utilize it and you cannot possess it, you have to return it back. And also taking something forcefully.
But publicly and there is a difference. I can steal something, instead of in nobody's watching with conditions. If caught, then they will chop my hand. But I can embezzle or take something forcefully, publicly. Like if I'm holding a public office, and I take millions and millions of dollars, due to my powers. Everybody knows this. Do I get my hand cut? No, this is a crime. But it's a crime that everybody knows about and they
can catch me they can prosecute me, they can do this and do that. With stealing. It is concealed. It's hidden. That's why every one of us can be a victim. Islam protects our wealth. So if the conditions are fulfilled in stealing, such as first it has to be concealed. If I'm working and I find some buddies wallet,
I'll take it is this stealing? No, it's wrong. But it's not stealing because it's in the open, it has to be in a cupboard, it has to be in a safe, it has to reach the nisab. It has to be done without any justification. So if I steal from my father, and don't listen to me, kids, if you steal from your father, there is no cutting of the hand, but you're doing something wrong. So there are so many
conditions, and this is not the time for it. Some of the means of consuming Hellfire is bribery, giving bribes. And this is quite famous among some Muslim countries. This calls for destruction for any country that this is found in. And the best of countries are those who put serious punishment, for whomever is discovered to have taken even one single reality. And this bribe has many, many forms. And we can spend the rest of the lecture talking about bribes. The Prophet said, that is a lot of cinema.
May Allah curse, the one who gives bribe and the one who receives the bribe, and the bribe receiver is usually someone in a post or in a position. And this is why they're giving him the bribe. And that is why the Prophet said that is awesome. If you were not in your position, and sitting in your mother's house, would anybody give you anything? So the governor, the king, the President, the Minister, the heads of departments, Mashallah big positions? What is this? Well, I got this present from home from x y, Zed, he loves me for the sake of Allah.
Okay, let's assume you're not in your office or in your job, and you are living in your mother's house or your father's house? Would he give you anything? No. In this case, this is a bribe. And you can cascade this on every single position, a teacher receiving just a week before the day of the exams, a beautiful gift, an expensive pen.
Doctor Who prescribes medication and the company of the pharmaceutical company comes and gives him a three days.
free ticket, first class board and everything
to attend a conference in the Bahamas.
Dr. What conference are you going in the Bahamas
with the family and the children and the neighbors.
This is a bride and so on. Again, the issue of bribing is extremely complicated, but it is as clear as daylight you can see it. You know when you feel it, it's in your office. It's within the purchasing department. They are the most people purchased.
So they are the procurement I go away. This is a gift. This is three days in the hospital in a hospital, eventually in a hotel. This is a free ticket. This is a new laptop. I think it will help you in your work and the people are getting richer and richer and richer. their bank account was this big now Mashallah. Is this big? Where did they get this money from? bribes? And we know this in the Arab world. I don't know about you here but inshallah you don't have this problem.
Why are they laughing?
one of the major sins that deals with consumption of heroin is a rebound and rubber. Each and every one of you knows the meaning. Technically, it takes us ages to explain, but I'll give you an example Riba is divided into two types rebel Hubbell. horiba Nessie rebel rebel is the difference in the same category. So if I have gold, and you have gold, and we would like to exchange any difference in the caliber, any difference in a gram of weight, this is Riba
women do this a lot. They go to the respect is the husband paying but
They do the transaction, they go to a jewelers shop and they say, Look, how much is this bracelet of gold? And he says after winning it, it costs 2000. And how much is that new one? He says it costs 3000. So she gives him the gold 1000 extra, and she takes that this is HIPAA.
Ah, now, this is what you say, look what your husbands are saying, hey,
transactions are haraam. Give you another example, this is for the men. You go to an exchange office. This is $100. How much is it in brackets? Approximately 400. Okay, Can I have it? I have only 300. Here is 300 come after five minutes, I'll get it for you. Okay, this is ribbon.
This is rebar, it has to be hand by hand. When it's exchange between gold and silver or gold and money, silver and money. Also that there are six categories, I don't want to get into technical things you will sleep six things that the Prophet name that is awesome gold, buy gold, silver by silver sold by salt data by date wheat, by wheat, barley by barley, two categories one, anything that is used as a price gold and silver currencies,
to anything that is weighed, either by size or by weight, and it's consumed to these two conditions have to be fulfilled. These are two different categories. But Reba applies in anything that falls under this table.
Let us get back to Earth.
Show me rebar. rebar is the interest you get from your bank account.
I'll be more extreme.
When you deposit your money in a bank. I have 100,000 bring it I put it in a bank. Do you think if I have 100,000? I'll be lecturing here.
As soon assume, assume
I have 100,000. And I deposited in a bank. What is the transaction between me and the bank? Is it for safekeeping? No.
If it were safekeeping, if the bank was burnt to the ground, he would come to me and say I'm afraid your money is gone.
Because if I give you for example, my car and I tell you put it in your garage and you put it safe in your garage and earthquake happens and the car is gone. Do I have the right to tell you give me my car back. You are doing me a favor. This is called safekeeping. The bank actually guarantees that he gives you back the money because this is a loan to the bank. Meaning with 100,000 bring it in my bank account. Every year, twice a year. The bank sends me gifts sends me boxes, fancy boxes with with sweets with dates with pens with the mobile phones. These gifts are Riba because it's an interest charge over a loan.
If you want to dispose of it, I'm willing to take it with me on to Saudi Arabia, and now inshallah find a way for it. But it's haram for you to use.
Also, when you put a time deposit box, you throw money and they give you a percentage. Now I'm not talking about the Islamic
banking because the issue of Islamic banking is so vague that a lot of the Islamic banking are dealing in Riba but camouflaging it.
Especially in the issue of the word rock. If the issue of murabaha these words you all know and everything is done on paper, excuse me, I'd like to borrow 100,000 bring it so that I can deposit in the bank like the sheriff and be rich like him. Okay, no problem. How are you going to do this? Listen, we will sell you air conditioners of 100,000
Yes, we will sell you air conditioners of this maker and sign here, please. Okay. And sign here another contract authorizing us to sell it and we will sell it for 15% less of the market price. Okay. Carlos, you've, you've done this. Here's your money. When did you do the transaction? So don't worry, we take care of all the technicalities. This is clearly been
there selling and buying of something that you did not acquire no acquisition on paper.
And we don't want to go through this because it will take us another couple of days. Riba is extremely how long
Rebbe on the loan. And I'll give you another example. I know that most of you will hate me after this. If you do not if you're not hitting me at the moment,
a lot of us love to invest. I believe that a lot of us are investing in Harlem.
I'll tell you how, you know, a brother who is righteous and practicing, and he says, Okay, I need 50,000 ringgit to invest in a project that I'm doing.
No problem. This is 50,000. What's my percentage? He says I'll give you 10% Yanni 5000 every month, okay. On the guarantee that I do not lose anything of my capital should Yes, you will not lose. It's a winning project. And I give him the money this is clearly
100% Riba no difference of opinion, share home investing, yeah, investing but you are guaranteeing a percentage and no loss, meaning that it's a loan of 50,000 and he is giving you the Riba of 5000 a month. But if you say I demand 90% of the profit.
If there is a profit and if there is loss, I lose my money. This is hard not to lose my money. It's not hard and then don't invest.
This is Islamic investing. Not Riba. The one you want and we can go on it will take us another couple of weeks, anyhow.
The Prophet says la salatu salam,
ora jabber may Allah be pleased with him, said the Prophet alayhi wa sallam cursed, the one who consumes Riba, the one who gives Riba so there's someone who takes and someone who gives and the one who writes the Riba, the register the accountant. And this is a problem. I know that half of you are accountants, but you want the truth while I want me to sugarcoat it and give it to you. You want to eat halal, right? While law he it is befitting for you to sit at the gate of the masjid, taking Saba, rather than to eat.
The Prophet curse, the one who gives the one who takes the one who registers and the witness is those who are witnessing I'm not charging anything. I'm just testifying. The The Prophet said and that is a him a Muslim. Oh, are in the same sin, the gravity, the danger, the consumption of haram money of Hellfire, they're all the same. The Prophet said that a salatu salam Riba is 73 divisions or types. So there, you have the highest, the lowest of it is like having intercourse with your own mother.
Are you serious? This is authentic hadith. Do you have second thoughts about Riba the least, is having intercourse with your own mother or
not even animals do this?
So it's a serious thing.
Among the things that cause us to consume health I already had enough.
Well, I am afraid it's a
And this is plenty see in business, and I've dealt with so many people in business, what you rely mostly on is your word. So if I make a transaction with you, I don't have to sign I don't have to have when I depend on your word. And this is why if someone swears and says, well, law, he I bought this for 10. I believe him.
Because I glorify online, the Virgin, I trust Allah. So if you use Allah's Name, I'm going to believe you, inside human body. And this shows you how we deal differently with Allah than our predecessors. So he had ohare, or Isa, peace be upon him, the prophet of Allah, so a man stealing. So he got hold of him and caught him. And he said, You have stolen and the man said, what law? He I did not steal. He let him go and said, I believe in Allah, and I falsify my own eyesight.
I do not believe my eyes halus I believe that you swore by Allah, He is a messenger of Allah. And I'm not going to go into details of explaining this idea and what is the concept of it because anyone can come and say, Well, I did not steal and he took my wallet should call us then I will do this. Now become rich.
They'll have 100,000 ringgit in my bank account. But it will be hard. So the concept, you have to understand that we glorify a loss aversion. However, people who use a loss name in their transactions, they will be punished. And they will be severely punished if they were lying, even if they were telling the truth, they will be punished because they sold the name of Allah, people did not buy it from you, because except because you used one law. But if you were lying, this is even worse. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam says, Whoever takes the property of a Muslim by false oath, then he has taken a part or a portion of hell, and he will not be admitted to Jannah
very scary, one of the companions of the Prophet of Allah, even a stick of a rock, even this miswak even if I managed to swear by Allah, to take this miswak he said, even if it was as small as a miswak
where I come from, we have Mashallah people taking not countries regions, by swearing by a lie that it is theirs. If you go to the courts, you will find people falsely testifying, swearing by a law I will do anything by Allah. May Allah take my eyesight if I was lying, who turned off the light?
They swear they have no problem. And and I know a lot of people like this milazzo will have mercy on us. Yeah, this is haram. He said, I go for Amara.
Allah, Allah He raises the sins. No, this is not correct. A lie raises minor sins, the major sins such as this, you need to give it back to the lawful owner. And this is known as El amin, Allah Ramos.
yameen is our pledge. mala he Ramos is the one that dips you why it dips you and Hellfire when you consume someone's wealth. Through that, and you can cascade it to false testimony. I need you tomorrow to testify with me in court. I didn't see Don't you believe me? Yes, I believe you can testify. Yes, he did not take Yes, he took this is haram. And this is part of it. Allah xojo says all you who believe do not consume one another's wealth unjustly but only in lawful business by mutual consent. What will happen a lot xojo says then we will drive him into fire whoever does this among the unlawful ways of consumption of money. I don't know about you, I have been stung a number
of times. People come and borrow money, and you give it to them. And that's it. You never see them.
Again, and we have a saying in Arabic. When someone wants money from you. He kisses your hands 10s of times.
But when you want your money back, you kiss his feet 10s of times.
And this is absolutely true. I've witnessed this myself. In business transactions in borrowings in people come to you humble like a panda bear.
Please, you give it to them and then they become clearer Mashallah.
They would not return your calls. Again, this is among the major sins of consuming people's money in transgression. also part of the hallum income is cheating.
We all know cheating. The Prophet says as a man rashanna
policemen whoever cheats us is not from among us. And cheating is not only in your exams when you do English test. No, this is one part of cheating. We're talking about cheating in transactions. So cheating originated from the Prophet s and I'm walking once in the market. He saw a pile of wheat of food of dates. He gets his hand inside of it and he finds wetness. Now the food should be dried. So he said owner of the foot. What is this? Is it profitable? Yesterday it was raining. So I turned it upside down? Said Subhanallah Why didn't you make it on top so people could relate to it and know whoever cheats us is not from among us. Now, nowadays. Do we have cheating in our transactions
How is that done? It is done in quantity. Waylon lil moto 15
So I pretend to be selling you 1000 pieces. It's actually 998 and when I buy from you 1000 pieces I insist it is 1002 This is a kind of transaction if I wait to sell, I reduce if I wait to buy I increase. I always take what is in my advantage. Cheating can be in quality. So the quality is lower. The quality is less. And unfortunately, a lot of the countries sell
counterfeit. Something that is not original. So one says I'd like to be
Burberry. I'd like to wear this I would love to, but I can't afford it. Okay, don't afford it. You don't need to know but I need people. A brother came to me 334 weeks ago with a set of watches. Chef I know you like mom blonde. This is this this is this. How much is this? Is 800 deals. Wow looks real. She'll take it I'll sell it three with a discount. The original cost 20,000.
Who knows? I know.
How would I live with myself wearing something that is fake falling people but who will fool me?
So selling counterfeit is haram because you're cheating people?
Okay, they know it's wrong. Because it's a company that has copyright and you are trespassing you are making transgression after their research and production and designing investing money you come and make part of that and we would not like to go into copywriting because then we will talk about Windows 10 we will talk about all of these things. are they paying you know a lot. They're not paying me but this is heroin heroin. This is heroin and heroin and if they were paying me I wouldn't be lecturing here.
Also we have this I don't know if you have auctions for us cars. We have this in Saudi, Masha Allah, Allah Allah they make the biggest cheaters on Earth. They tell you this car goes from zero to 100 in five meaning hours
but they cheat they lie they tell you this car is this this cars that auctions and food auctions and property all of this can have cheating in it.
Eight minutes left and so many things to talk about selling hot on
the way is that hot I'm here in Malaysia.
We sell Harlem everywhere in the Muslim world. And this is a big problem. We are one we are not practicing Muslims don't kid ourselves. We have problems from here. Any
distance as long as not not because my case is anything. Don't get me wrong. We have a problem and we're not ready to fix ourselves. Yeah, she hola we have how long we have this? Are you carrying an interest based loan?
Pamela, when Amara does the job. Again.
Among the things that are haram to sell
are anything that is haram to us. So let me give you a quick list. musical instruments. Music is haram. This ship is Wahhabi, this definitely is extremist
Walla Walla Walla. If music was hallel I would be the first one to listen to it.
I'd be the first one to enjoy it.
But it's not. This is the religion of Allah. The Haram of music, which, unfortunately here is why this spreading, not to the extent of enjoying it personally, but to the extent of even getting closer to Allah What are you doing? Are you praying? No, no, I'm getting closer to Allah. I'm listening to music.
Excuse me. Yeah, I'm singing machine machine.
machine. Behind you. There's an orchestra. Yes.
It is the prophet who prohibited and it fits into a mojari
maybe it's week maybe Okay. What are you shattering? mulki Hanafi henneberry. The four schools of thought the consensus they all agreed. It is haram to listen to musical instruments. This is this is a big issue one. Seriously. Now what law it hardens your heart. It makes it as hard as stone. That's why you pray. I'm unable to cry. I'm unable to feel the Quran and the liquor of Allah.
Let's not get into this this is not our subject it will take us maybe four weeks more to conclude the show selling of any musical instruments, violin, pianos, guitars, synthesizers, even synthesizers because synthesizers are not
brass based or string based is something new. Anything that has music has beat into it that makes you dance or want to dance that make you cry that make you happy. Music is totally prohibited movies. Come on.
After the convention I have tickets to go and watch.
Whatever Hang on, hang over for
how do you say it's haram?
Okay, any movies that contain music? Okay, music were over with or mixing between the genders women, violence, sex, profanity, all of this Hara. So I cannot even sell it. I'm not gonna watch it. selling it watching it is all Harlem songs. We've gone through that dogs we've gone through that intoxicants. Nobody sells hamdulillah or consumes or buys. Hammer because we all know it's heroin. But what about drugs?
cocaine, heroin, and opium.
What about marijuana?
You have to be cool, man. You have to chill dude.
So Han Allah. It is all Haram, a major sin in Islam. Allah will not accept your prayers for 40 days come
40 days? Yes. Anyone who consumes intoxicants alone would not accept accept his prayers for 40 days. Now this is a big problem. So
What do you call it, shisha or it has an Arabic we call it anything that you consume of such tobacco based or a sale or whatever they call it? It's
dangerous and harms your health and it burns your wealth. So selling it, dealing with it renting it is all haram income, selling images of human beings of animals, whether they're statue 3d or 2d drawings. It's also harm because the profit prohibited selling how long things for
people selling awake, you know, hair wigs for women.
What have you made halaal for us? Well, this is the next series shala convention. We will talk about halaal things.
wearing a wig for a woman is haram having extensions, her hair is this long and then Mashallah, tomorrow her hair is this long? What is this? This extensions shift? It looks really hard on the one who does it curse so you're selling it is hot. I'm having clothes that are haram sold to people that you know, will wear it in Harlem, then this is how I'm selling men, gold rings or gold watches how long for them to wear. It's how long for you to sell. And two minutes and five seconds.
renting your property. The brothers billionaires who we've addressed in the beginning, they have lots of properties and they don't consume Herman hamdulillah. But they lease their properties to banks based on Riba. They leased their properties to insurance companies. They lease their properties to nightclubs, to massage parlors to selling alcohol, tobacco, etc. to restaurants that sell pork and sell
intoxicants. I'm not doing it dealing with it. Yeah, but you're taking the rent, you are contributing, you are cooperating your income is how long
then, am I
doing a sin if I'm serving in the restaurant or an airplane? How long liquor or how long food? Okay, after one hour and a minus one minute. You do not understand this. Please watch the recording. Definitely
selling the profit curse 10
in humble, those who buy it, those who sell it those who carry it those who it's being carried to those who make it. Those who planted those who tend people are cursed in one single item. So do not cooperate on haram do anything but make sure you do not consume her arm and finally, did I say that a while ago?
Okay, no finally before the final final
The Prophet told us LS Lazzara on the day of judgment when it is 50,000 years long when the sun draws closer to the people until they sweat, and each one the sweat reaches his body according to his deeds. On that day, you your feet will not move an inch until you questioned and asked about your income. Where did you gain it from and where did you spend it from? And finally,
there is no way to know whether my income is halal or haram except through knowledge. One of the means is coming here but this weather or weather was telling you is not knowledge. It's just the tip of an iceberg. You have to go back to your core and you have to go back to your Sunnah of the prophet Isaiah cinema, lead, learn and ask. There are scholars all over the world that hamdulillah with some research with q&a you will understand you will learn and then you will be able to identify whether I'm consuming How long should you prepare yourself for Hellfire
you know walk in the sun and turn off the air conditioning voila Hey nothing would help there is nothing that can prepare us to Hellfire just light the candle and put your second put your your your your finger for three seconds count 123 Can we do that Hellfire is 70 times worse than the furnaces. The most heated furnaces we have or a volcano or something 70 times and how long we will stay there IE two years well if he wants second we cannot tolerate so finally
harmonica melodies with him for those who are interested in doing business you have to learn on bourbon hapa melodies with him used to go in the market while I you flash from here until moderate I'm gonna finish I'm gonna finish so don't flash for me the time is over. I'm not going to stop.
So Ramadan hapa may Allah be pleased with him used to go in the market in the souk, like the molds, with his famous dura with his stick. And when whenever he sees someone new, he asks him a few questions. And if the man does not reply, or unable to answer, he hits him and takes him out. He says Get out do not spoil our market. Only those who know halal and haram can come and sell because if you come and I have hundreds of similar questions, sure. I didn't know that this is how long but now the transaction has been done. Why didn't you know? Because you were keen on gaining money rather than keen on getting what pleases allies soldier? May Allah azza wa jal make our income
halaal May Allah azza wa jal purify the countries of the Muslims from any haram transaction. May Allah azza wa jal make our transactions with our brothers and sisters, all based on honesty and trust and Allah azza wa jal knows best for some Allahu wa sallam.
He was on the edge many
