Sula, Rama Nova him,
the life of the Sahaba, the life of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the aspects of their lives, the model of their lives, and what they had to do, and what they understood of this religion to make it a model for the rest of this woman. And some of the attributes of the Sahaba explained to us how much belief they have in the last 100 with either His prophets and how they really understood the revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala, how they really understood the message and that was the calacatta Chroma Calliope. That was the the the only way we can understand how they were able to do what they did.
And one of the attributes of the Sahaba is, is something that has been subject to debate, even during the time of the life of the Prophet sallallahu usnm a concept that some people can take too extreme, and some people will forsake all together something that that really many scholars speak spoke off, and we shall try to, to speak of that and try to explain some of that, based on evidence from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and base of the life style of the Sahaba, which is the main frame that we are modeling our current series over. And that is this the subject and the concept of hazard hazard in Arabic. And and some of the translation into English really does
not give you the full
idea of hazard, which is translated mostly as an aesthetic way of life. It's to forsake the earthly life for sake, the dunya desert in Arabic means exactly the shade, to have it in something is really not give value to it, it's set you you've made zelich, to something you have driven towards something nice, you really don't have much value into it. And the zoo hood is not to have a lot of value, and life and in this in this material life that we live in the things that we use to see the things that we own, the things that we have the materialistic aspect of life is to not value that particular part. And that is really the the the meaning in Arabic of that particular word. They've
been fania Rahim Allah defined the word Zuma, he said as Xu tokuma. In South Africa, he gave a very short definition about desert. It said desert is to forsake anything that is not useful in Jaco.
It's really beautiful definition. If you think about it, it doesn't mean not to have money.
But if your money is not a tool, that you that you use for your life, after for your hereafter, then you should really not have your heart into it. It doesn't mean not to have material things, but it's really you have to use these things that you are less a handout I gave you in deploying that into the, into the hereafter. So even taymiyah said Zhu, Li and facula tries to forsake any things to leave anything that is not useful for you and to hear after
the Sahaba of the alarm on home, they did not have a definition for desert actually, when you go into the mid many heavies, there is no direct recommendation that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said will seek on desert that you you should have zone, but the meanings of these heady is what the Sahaba understood and that will how the concept observed developed among the Sahaba. That this preferring it is putting value and the Hereafter is to have the life after is more preferable to this life and to invest everything we have in this life for the service of our life later on.
So a loss of Hello
Tyler will start how the Sahaba took the concept observed, beginning with the Quranic ending with the Quran to the sin of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, including your head. Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah kicap about this life, but this is just to give us an example to give us some solitude when he law his method Allah, Allah Subhana Allah says, loving method of heresy Junior Canadiens Illumina Salah is a follow up for us baja Shimon says rubia What can Allahu Allah do and then when the moon is enough to hire to do well doppia to solve how to create an interrupt because alaba Allah, Allah subhana wa tada said in sort of them and give them assembly feud of this life or
higher to junior a junior is this current life
can I use it now in a semi like a rain pour down on Earth from Heavens follow kobina battle out it next to it the plant of the earth meaning the plant based on that rain benefiting from that rain. There we have plants that came out. First Maha Shimon says rule Yeah. And later on this plants become dry, and it becomes hay growing and the wind will come along Allah cliche moqtada Allah tala is his most capable of all things. And that means that this is also all what you see here. And this dunya all what you see around you have all these great buildings of these great agriculture industry and everything that was before and to come later on, is transit. It's something that comes in for a
short period of time, just like that plant that grew out of the rain, and then dried out and then it's gone. It became it was blown in the wind.
There was a panel with Allah said, and men were Xena could hear the dunya money, the belongings, the wealth, and the children are ornamentation of this life. Something that beautifies this slide makes people love it. zenithal hierarchy DDS ornamentation, people love what they have people love their children. And people love their belongings people like their houses, their cars, their bank accounts, once upon a time this is ornamentation for this slide. I learned Benghazi that we'll have to do yet went back to sorry how to hire on the Kesava but the good deeds, the one the things that actually last because this is all go away all this all whatever money anybody has any oh these
belong This is going to go but Allah Subhana Allah COVID the rest of it asylee had the decent Alba he had the things that stayed the things that actually last forever.
I saw he had one that he had to study how to haven in Europe because the lava, they are better with Allah subhana wa Tada. They have better the world with Allah subhana wa Jalla wa ala and more hopeful. So you put your hopes you put you put your your energy on something, put it on something that would last
don't put on something that's gonna go away. So lots of times Allah is telling us this is good
enough to do so beautiful in the studio was doppia to solve hard but the things that are everlasting and good was a loss of Hannah with Allah are better and more hopeful for the person. Meaning that when you put it in the account of the actor and the hereafter, you know, that's gonna last for you.
And it wasn't what Allah said about this do you need
Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala said, No Let it be known to you. But then this wife and her to do me alive.
It's it's got a play,
wasting time. And this if we don't invest it in the right, and the right track, Leyburn when
was enough, and ornamentation decoration what a faff home a nickel, it's competition. amongst you. It's more it's a it's a place for having more pride among each other. It's a competition who's got the bigger house who's got the bigger car, who's got the better, he's got more children whose children are doing better in school than the other. There's always this you know, the thought hold on beynac lots of hands. Allah said, and this is really true. This is these are the words of Allah Subhana Allah now we all can deny this at one point or another.
But if we reflect on what happens among people in all societies, we see that Allah Subhana Allah is the truth and says the truth, never had to do a boy

cannot tell you life again the same time with chemical devices like rain came from from the sky can let's say you're a thin Archer then could fall on a battle like terrain that those the kuffaar here doesn't mean the unbelievers I Catherine Arabic also can means the farmer. Okay? Because Catherine just digress a little bit to explain that meaning as Catherine is somebody who hides something. Okay, so those farmers who hide the seeds and the ground, they're called Kufa.
Okay, because the castle hides the sutra hides the true facade the true nature of Allah subhanaw taala has given him which is to say La la la la la. If you leave a lot of time with Allah says,
Allah said, kumawu, the new level and for every every person is born to the true nature of knowing that Allah subhanaw taala is one and there is a last kind of God. And if you even see the atheist, they're in trouble. They say God, the essence of God, and all the the people that always when you get really into trouble, your heart is towards Allah subhana wa Tada. And I've seen it for a while with my own eyes. We had some atheists that I knew. And when they got in trouble, they asked for a lot. How but this is the capital the capital is somebody who hides that nature. And the farmer is somebody who hides the seed in the underground so are given too far on tobacco. It's like a similar
to the rain that came from the sky. And then the farmers so what grows out of it and liked it did they really admire what they have, like we admire what we have and hold you to it and try to protect it. We try to protect our wealth, we try to protect our houses we try to protect what we have, and lots of our job is to fall on the battle. Whatever grew out of that rain, those farmers liked it admired it, soon manage. Then it turned around, they changed the thought out homeless for I became yellow.

So I encourage you guys to sign up Japan is one of the greats have been the one the second layer that followed the second generation that immediately followed the generation, the generation of the Sahaba. And he took their teaching directly from the Sahaba rhodiola. I know.
They said the same thing that they've been saying he said about metalphoto he said
he can follow the law, this only the things that actually take you away from seeking the hereafter.
These are the things that will be gone astray. These are the things that will be destroyed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And those are the things that will follow by the Wrath of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But everything that was invested in seeking the Hereafter, is just a last

Allah Subhana Allah speaks of the human nature. And that's what the zoo is all about the zoo is to overcome those desires to love and have and have it now I want it all and I want it now this is an American concept, right? I want it I want everything, but I want it now. And and this love and this the heart that goes out just to achieving that. And if we can achieve it, then you have to be on Prozac. You have to be on antidepressants, if you can't really achieve what you set out to achieve, and that is to have the wealth and to have the and this is the nub of the Shahada, this desires and so azula is to overcome to forsake
Why still overcome this love of the desires that you want to have things right now in life if you don't have it, you're miserable. And if you have it, you're happy but you want more.
Now the only the only happy but you really want more. Allah subhanaw taala said this is the human nature. An animal on 14th Street, two beautiful boys versus an alum on 14 and 15

Well, then, and the children
are now feeling confined piles upon piles of gold and silver, because they're heavy on football, and love wealth, you know,
all these things that you that we see on on today's media, and it's being fed into the brains and the hearts of our children and ourselves. Those, you know, the women that are out there and and, you know, we don't need to talk about that. But you can see just flip on the TV and say stop for a while I'll leave what goes on national media on national TV milanesa Walton and the children of the things for the service of our children and and people dedicate their life just to the service of their children. And we will see what is the difference between that and the concept, observe the concept of this doesn't mean don't care about your children. Doesn't mean don't go to work. And don't try
and acquire well. And that's what we're trying to explain here in this session. Shawa the domains that your whole life.
I met with it with one person on it on a trip and he had just sent last one of his children to college. And he said, My life is totally empty. Now I don't know what to do. My whole life, all I did is take him to baseball game and basketball game and go through schools and just dedicated everything and now they're all gone. They're all out of college, and I have nothing. He was missing. He was very, very sad. And also parents Allah said, this is the Delia, this is this is something that you you're required to take care of your children. But that's not everything that should be in your heart.
The Apple, I should be there, the word for the year after. So what's behind that is telling us Julian Shahar came in and he said he will intervene and the children will confer a few minutes.
That includes all types of wealth. Doesn't have to be through you know, gold can be stocks. It can be property, it can be real estate, it can be farms can be anything. One highly musona and the beautiful horses I just take the assembly theater for Allah subhanaw taala and make that into beautiful cars. You know, we don't have horses, but this is the things that we ride. Although right now there are many people that actually spend millions of dollars on beautiful horses Well, if you will, and you will have and the capital and the farmland you know, the farm the harvest of the farmland This is really this is everything out there wealth wise.

That concludes all the pleasures of this life is your house, your ride whatever you ride, whatever you wherever you live, whatever wealth you have, and whatever comes to you out of cut you know cat farm products and and and agriculture. That's That's it.
Now you come out here to dunya
Allah subhanaw taala
has a more beautiful end.
So what is that next

So the scholar said,
the zoo had this lifestyle this under this concept observed in this lab, it's not about wearing something rough, or eating something tough.
It's not about downgrading your life, although we will see some of the Sahaba did that and visited for a purpose and will have to understand that they, they downgraded thinks that they could do better for two things for feeling a loss of Hannah with the island, like a pop up
all his income was from the treasury of Muslims. So anything he will spend, as a Khalifa has to come from there, he had no job when he was a Khalifa, other than the Khalifa. He had no source of income, other than the treasury of Islam. So he took the bare minimum out of that, because it's Muslim money.
And we will say how they downgraded that life and why they were up close, and they ate the minimum that they could do. And, and so no scholar said, Zed is not not not not to try to work or achieve goals in this life. He said, I'm Azad. I don't want to go to school. You know, children can say, um, I don't want to be a physician or an old lawyer because I am sad. I don't want this done. Yeah. That's not so good. You know, that is, this is what what this card is saying. You have to to clarify this.
And it's not about depriving ourselves voluntarily from things that are available to us. And they are. We know the story of the three people that that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew about them. And they asked about the worship of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam said when he visited Rasulullah Kahlua they heard what the prophet sallahu wa sallam used to do and they they felt that that is not enough. So they vowed for themselves to not eat meat, one of them said I will not eat meat, or eat anything greasy or Fatty, I will just, you know, eat, you know, deprived my I will make this hot on for me. And the other person said I will not marry a woman and I want to live a life of
celibacy. I will deprive myself from that pleasure for Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Right, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he heard of their voluntary vows, he said, and I need a call from you now.
I'm the one that fear Allah subhanaw taala the most among you, the more the person that knows Allah subhanaw taala the most Allah in neiafu after I fast and it I break my fast I eat
and I make the prayer at night and then I sleep also at night because the other person the third person said he will not sleep at night he will just spend all the nights praying for lost data. There's nothing wrong with that right I mean, these are all good deeds. But also masala Sallam said this is not the way he said our app can you let us know at this time and I eat meat
Roman Rosita and Sumit de la semi me, those who do not follow my tradition, my assume that they are not from me. So to take these things to extreme without a reason. So long, olalia sentences This is a case the Sunnah This is against the tradition of the Prophet sallallahu ascender. But what is the Zealot about jr is if we have those pleasures, and they're gone,
and they're gone, then the heart will not be sad and by not having them anymore. Or if we aspire to achieve something in this dunya and it doesn't happen.
My dream is to build a palace somewhere and have 200 bedrooms, for example. And you only Allah, Allah gave you only four bedroom house, right?
And people can be miserable with that.
So what is the exhibit? The exhibit said, one of the scholars said to lie
below Jude who will have enough food. He said design doesn't have proud pride and pleasure of the things of dunya doesn't feel these better than others. Because of the things that have in this vignette and for for the worse for actors and all doesn't only mean happiness but also mean pride.
Let them shuffle up the model. So this this is this words, these people that get these wealth the world from Allah, Allah, the bounty from Allah subhanaw taala. That's always material, it can be knowledge, it can be children, you know, the people This was especially in, in a tribal society, that how many children you have gave you the highest stature in the society. So this is all from Allah Subhana Allah and it's not a cause for pride by the person. So person that has the chooser had in his heart. Now for holding a dunya the no Jude doesn't have the five. If something follows her hands, Allah gave him something. Well, yeah, so who knew her allama food and doesn't become sound if
something's gone away?
And Allah subhanaw taala said, Michaela, so Alana Walla
Walla, who knows
how to explain this concept, or was $100 said, so Alana Federico, if something that you missed us or didn't get it in the first place, or you had it and it's gone. Allah subhanaw taala said, you should not be so over. You should not be a cause of such sadness in your life. You don't need Prozac. If Allah Subhana Allah took your beautiful car and you have a smaller car. Because this is Delia, this is transit. You know,
well, let me not attack them and don't be proud. arrogance, have a cause of arrogance was what Alyssa khandala has given you.
I have more muscles than you. I have more wealth than you. I have more knowledge than you. I'm better than you. You know, the first sin of the least is he said, and I hate on me. I'm better than him. I'm better than Adam. also said, Don't try to say I'm better than anybody else with things of this vignette. Because the scale of a lesson is only about taqwa. Someone is better than the other one was taqwa was the fear of Allah 100. Allah was the piety. And only Allah subhanaw taala can judge that. How can we say you have five pounds of taqwa and this other person has seven pounds of stuck? Well, I mean, this doesn't mean you know, only Allah Subhana Allah can tell who has more than
100 Allah does not like anybody who's boastful and arrogance
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
well, what he meant
I'm not afraid of don't feel for you poverty
was Allah said
and said, I'm not afraid that you will be hit by calamity by poverty. Well, I Kimmy Asher and Julia alikoum cannabis, lm and cannon public confession so Sudha can attend a suha.
This Hadees is narrated in Al Bukhari Muslim Allah Timothy and even Niger very strong authentic heavy
selling said I'm not afraid for you this poverty but I'm afraid that the dunya will be open for you. This life will be open you will get the wealth of this dunya this oma
cannabis element Karen publikum Lackawanna to Allah tested those who before you would give them well,
this under has a lot of wealth, brothers and sisters,

come out to see catalana and can amicably come this do? You like it open further. So before you set an FSO so you can teeth in it, then it becomes your work it becomes what you busy with doing every day is trying to get better in this dunya set of legal konkola and then you will perish like those before you perished. from lack of taqwa.
This Hadith is narrated in an Bukhari that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
to him, Well,
in order to be
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in this beautiful Hadees said, how miserable is he? The servants of Dina the slave of Gina, slave of the dollar, right.
said he's a miserable what a miserable existence.
The slave of the Mohammed dinar, the slave of money, was a thief and the good clothes will come. He saw all the decoration ornamentation
when he has him when he has all these things, this life material things, he's happy
or she's happy.
She's talking about a slave of Allah, when they have all the good things and the beautiful things and the money and the good clothes. They're happy when you follow me
But they don't have it. They're not happy with Allah soprano without. And that is exactly the opposite of Zed. This is antis ahead, as definition is if we have these waves, this material things, we're happy, we're fine, and we want more.
But if we don't have them, then we're miserable.
So the heart is not connected with Allah subhanaw taala. The heart is connected with the money. The heart is connected with the clothes and the hardest connectors with the belongings of this dunya
and also some semblance of locality, da da da da, da da, da ba ba Oba massacre in her CATHERINE MCKENNA. He said if this dunya is worth with Allah subhanho wa Taala, the wing of the mosquito, then an unbeliever would not be given one glass of water.
This is worthless in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala all the things that people kill each other for
and and still the blood
and steal, invade each other.
For these things, they're worthless with Allah subhana wa tada doesn't work. A wing of a mosquito is not worth a wing of a mosquito. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, manually dunya.
Iraq, he didn't call us even da da, da hatanaka the Prophet sallahu wa sallam, what why do I need the dunya? What is what why do I have to have the dunya the assembler to the knee in this dunya like a traveler who rested in the shadow of a tree to connect to caressed and moved on. That's the gymea it's that shadow of the shugar.
If you are traveling, if you have a connection, that say you're going to New York and you have to have a connection in Atlanta, would you stop in Atlanta airport and buy a house? They're trying to build the house? This is the vineya it's the stop. So let's come away with the axon. That's what the prophet sallallahu wasallam said.
And then he defined what we want added dystonia what why do we need this dunya for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said and this is heavy, it hasn't so good, heavy, and even mega with pyramids, He then asked
me an empty survey. More often he just said it. In the
second level Jr. The Prophet sallahu wa sallam said three things if you have, like, you have the dunya you have the entire good that can come out of this dunya man as an empty survey, those who get up in the morning and they are secured they're safe, and they're in their environments. And many people are not safe. And their environments mean their wars, their invasions, their bombs, you know, but those who have safety and hamdulillah like you know we do in this society. One thing you said you have to have
the safety, the security, more often teacher teachers are then you have the health in your body. You have security, health workers to find out who to man you have the food for the day.
Like you have the whole your whole earth like you have the whole goods that come out of this dunya
and then another Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he was asked for more money by hacking ventures and he wanted money from the Prophet sallallahu he was setting them and he gave him money. So he came to the Prophet again and asked him for money and the Prophet gave them more money. And then he asked them prophets Allah to send them for more money. And then the Prophet sallallaahu Selim said, Yeah, Hakeem in the hair, the man who brought on fella,
Thurman, Africa who will be soccer with enough saying, boy coffee, woman Ahava who Vishwa Lipson lemmie Baraka, houfy, what can I kill the cooloola Yeshua, he said, this money that you have, that you are giving, it's a beautiful greenery, something that you can really use for a lot of good things. The greenery and the desert society means all the good things that you can have. Because it's the it's the it's really the source of all wealth. And this is what the prophet sallallahu wasallam is telling that man who understand that concept. It's like a beautiful greenery that you're getting from Allah subhana wa Tada. You take it generously. How you take something generously. You
take it and you're ready to give it out. You don't let it go into your heart, right? When you think you usually give generously, but the prophets I send them segment a hula hoop is a katinas those who take and generously they take it and they're not hooked to it in their hearts.
They take it it's in their hands, but it's not in their hearts. Booty Kala houfy they will be blessed that money will be blessed for them.
None other will be Shroff enough since then you've been overtaken out of greed, then they cannot be any blessing in that money.
So this is to avoid the greed. To avoid the greed, I want it. I want more. And the Prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam said
that if even Adam, if even Adam was given, this is an Buhari and Muslim, now can we add in our DNA in the hip? If the son of Adam had two valleys of gold, that
he would want a third one, he would want a third value of gold. While I am no go for the add an image Rob and nothing can step up the greed of the son of Adam can fill the son of Adam except dust except to our dirt. tube Allahu Island and SAP and Allah subhanho wa Taala repent of those who will hear he almost 100 Allah will repent on
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If Lucha men had Allah who in Islam, what can I issue Catherine takayanagi those who Allah subhanaw taala guided to Islam.
And Allah subhanaw taala gave them their sustenance, their their share of his sustenance, a fair result, and they were satisfied with it. They were satisfied with what Allah subhanaw taala they were happy with Allah, they were pleased with Allah subhanho wa Taala they had the honor, the satisfaction, they were satiated by of Allah subhanaw taala has given them they have the Salah they are the success.
So if we go through the life of the Sahaba How did they understand that concept? And what that concept meant to them, starting with some of us who have had a lot of money, they will love this hub, like Abu Bakr, Siddiq rhodiola. Why Islam, not some of the Omar Abdullah none of the alpha of the ally. These are not poor people, these are wealthy people. But they took this well, that they have and never let it go into the hearts. Never let that one thing of dunya that greed go into their hearts. And they kept the wealth in the hands so they can use it in the way of Alice Hannah with that. And we have also many of us who have either did not have much wealth, but how they dedicated
their lack of attachment to dunya to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because if you are to define the zote it should be no attachment to dunya the heart cannot be attached to this dunya No matter how much we have. But that's a difficult test the more you have,
by nature, the more attached to the dunya you will be and this is what Allah subhanaw taala said it's been
very beloved to people these things these things people love, by nature. And the only way to overcome it is taqwa
is to feel Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and have piety with Allah subhana wa that
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself was an example of that, on the authority of Omar.
And this is was narrative and book of hacking.
And the degree of the authentication is to so here on the conditions of Imam Muslim for the Allahu Akbar, I want to set the stage and to analyse the lie so mama Holly your Salah, said I took permission and I want to the room of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

He was the governor appointed by Chris Dykstra by Christmas. And one time he was they were attacked by the Byzantine, there was a lot of war between the Byzantine and the Persians, and the Persians attacked that place and they actually defeated the Persians, and they took so hive as a slave.

And he said, I never put the prophets on the lolly, you send them between me and the enemy, meaning every time there was a battle, I was between the enemy and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. But the story about the zoo of Soho by Rumi, how he devalued dunya comes from the event that happened to sohaib or the Allahu, and at the time of emigration. So hype was one of the very few left in Mecca after most of the Sahaba made their hedra, from Mecca to Medina. And it was said that he was supposed to be with us a lot. He was stellar and Abu Bakar deal. However, the people of Mecca knew that he was leaving. And so right after he gets his freedom, became a merchant in Macau, and he

And he continued on his spending and generosity. And Bob came to him and he said you are extravagant. The people talk about all the added the feasts that you put out.

And when Allah Subhana Allah gave Sham, which was one of the wealthiest the shamans were Syria, Jordan, Palestine, they'll learn to turn it to the Muslims and living on is today this whole area is called a sham. And they took a sham from Byzantium. They were looking for a governor for the most important
fortress and the most important, wealthiest city, actually in that in that whole territory, and that was him. So it was a city that's currently in Syria called him. And they were trying to find someone who can actually handle that well and bring Islam into that city.

So he can help himself, help his family and live a life that is worthy, a decent of a governor of that city.
So his wife said, Why don't we take this money and let's buy this house? And let's do that. And let's, you know, let's spend it and she's a newlywed bride, and she wants to, and her husband is the, you know, the governor, so she wants to, you know, do some some spending.

He said, Give it all out to the poor, and every other you know, every now and then his wife will ask him, how is the investment doing? And he says it's doing great, doing very well.

What is you know, how much do we have? And he said, it's going very well, and then start laughing, the one that was there because he knew what side of Nana did.
And then she found out he said, What did you do with the money? And he said I invested it with a loss of Hannah with that. There is no better investment than to invest that money was Allah subhana wa Tada. And she said, Why did you do that? And he said, Look at kenneally harben sakuni Lola, I have companions.

These complaints are somewhat legitimate, why is he not responsive at night? Why does he not start his job too late in the day? Or is he late? And why does he disappear twice? Twice a month? And why does he think every one of them, although that's

And he said what about the fainting? Why do you think that much? And he said, Come to be Mecca. I was in Mecca. And ours was the mushrikeen. That was before Islam. With jack Habib. alongside you know Habib is one of the prisoners that were caught in the tragedy of the oma owner. When the teachers that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam send to the tribes were caught and they were sold in Mecca, and they were taken to be killed and murdered by the people of Mecca in revenge to better

you yet how long was the National
Fair Juco mini us a food can add to the food
for your home.
Coffee daddy as hallucinogen. He said I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when Allah subhanaw taala, God gathers people for the Day of Judgment, the pool of money in the form of the Muslims will come.
And they will be brought in a caravan. Like the like the the elite come in a caravan delegations, and then they tell them stop, you have to be asked before you go into gentlemen. And they said we had nothing to be asked about.
There is nothing, there is no money that we can be asked about. And the last panel attalla said they are truthful that then go into paradise. And in the Hadith, that the world fee of the believers go into paradise half a day later than the poor of the believers being asked about their money being asked about how they got their money, and how they spend their money. And half the day is 500 years 500 years delay for those people who have wealth.
And the poor will go into paradise before then. So he said I wanted to keep nothing in my house. And I want it to be one of the four.
That was the concept of a desert.
Now Subhan Allah.
By comparison, if we compare our standards of living,
to what the Sahaba standard of living was it fair to say that most of us
are wealthy people compared to Mr. Bob, compared to Abu Dhabi fari, compared to say, eight of Ghana, compared to these other people, but we have to understand, sha Allah the concept of Zedd that concept, that when Allah Subhana Allah Allah bestowed upon us the blessing of wealth.
And wealth is very relative because the prophets a lot he was sending them said, who he wanted to ask about the poor, who is the poor. And the man said, I am a poor man era Sumo law. And he said, Do you have the food of your day? He said, Yes, I have the food of my day. He said, You are not a poor man.
And then another one said, I am a poor man, I don't have the food for today. And this, the other person said
1000 Well, if he asked people for a loan, would they give you a loan? And he said, Yes, they will. And he said, then you're not a poor man.
And the third person said, I'm a poor man. He said, can you work? So yes, I can work and said, You're not a poor man.
So the concept of being poor, is not what we really think that's I'm saying relatively, so Hamdulillah, many of us, not all of us. However, there are still poor people there, especially you know, it's all relative.
But we have to understand when Allah subhanaw taala bestowed the bounty and the wealth upon us not to let that become our
life, not to let us be busy with that, that don't let our hearts be attached to that. And let our goals be, to use that wealth that Allah, Allah has given us in his obedience, and not to love what we have, and be busy with it from a philosophy that Allah has created us for Allah Subhana Allah to Allah sit in the head he fell could see it in Adam.
