00:01:30 --> 00:01:31

We all heard the term

00:01:32 --> 00:01:41

that life is about a race, that life is a rat race. Everyone is chasing something

00:01:43 --> 00:01:48

a dream and aspiration a goal that we run after

00:01:50 --> 00:01:51

in this life,

00:01:52 --> 00:01:53

the human nature

00:01:55 --> 00:01:58

and that race changes

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

with the stage of our life

00:02:03 --> 00:02:05

with where we are,

00:02:06 --> 00:02:07


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

are after

00:02:11 --> 00:02:12

00:02:36 --> 00:02:36


00:02:38 --> 00:02:40

erase that never stops.

00:02:42 --> 00:02:49

But Allah subhanho wa Taala is inviting us to participate in a different race.

00:02:52 --> 00:03:01

Allah, the Almighty, our Creator and Lord who knows our inside and inner nature inclination

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

is inviting us

00:03:05 --> 00:03:09

and making us aware that there is a better race

00:03:11 --> 00:03:13

that we all should be participating in.

00:03:16 --> 00:03:21

And that race is the one more important race than any other

00:03:26 --> 00:03:27

the race that matters

00:03:30 --> 00:03:33

because all of our goals and aspirations

00:03:34 --> 00:03:36

and our dreams

00:03:38 --> 00:03:42

that we have in this life, even when we achieve it

00:03:44 --> 00:03:45

it's temporary

00:03:48 --> 00:03:49

and it's going to go away.

00:03:51 --> 00:03:54

It is either going to leave us

00:03:55 --> 00:03:56

or we're going to gonna leave it

00:04:01 --> 00:04:06

if our aspirations for a career for a business

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

one day

00:04:10 --> 00:04:11

we're gonna have to leave that

00:04:15 --> 00:04:20

if it is for a bigger house, a better whatever it is.

00:04:23 --> 00:04:31

But there's one thing, one prize at the end of this race that Allah is inviting us to

00:04:33 --> 00:04:36

that easterner eternal prize.

00:04:38 --> 00:04:42

That race is the race of higher of goodness.

00:04:44 --> 00:04:45

And the prize

00:04:47 --> 00:04:51

is the closeness to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is paradise.

It's the pleasure of Allah. Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, well, he coolin which hit on Who am well Leah. Everyone has a path

00:06:00 --> 00:06:08

achieve this race and participate in that race are limitless, are endless.

00:06:12 --> 00:06:15

And he can be a very simple thing.

00:06:18 --> 00:06:25

It can be easier and better for us than participating in the races of this life in this dunya.

00:06:30 --> 00:06:42

And the prophetic teaching in the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as it is narrated in, Musa damnit, on the authority of Abu Salah and Safari, prior to Allah Who

00:06:43 --> 00:06:54

was or was one of the Sahaba dinner that companions of the messenger Salatu was Salam that did not have much money. He was known

00:06:55 --> 00:06:58

to have a very modest lifestyle

00:06:59 --> 00:07:02

and didn't own much of anything.

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

And he said to the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:07:08 --> 00:07:10

they have al agonia ob legem

00:07:11 --> 00:07:13

You saloon our Yasunaga June

00:07:16 --> 00:07:17

rich people

00:07:19 --> 00:07:21

get most rewards.

00:07:22 --> 00:07:38

They pray they fast and they have they can go to Hajj they go go the pilgrimage, and the messenger SallAllahu sallam said, and you can also do the same thing one don't have to Soluna autosomal Jun then I will either add it

or Yatta South Dakota or North or South duck, but they can give money they can give charity they can pay off loans.

00:07:49 --> 00:07:50

And we can

00:07:51 --> 00:07:52

we don't have that.

00:07:53 --> 00:07:58

So the messenger SallAllahu wasallam explained to him what charity really means.

00:07:59 --> 00:08:00

He said

00:08:01 --> 00:08:18

Africa loves him. And he taught at South Africa, where he died took a Peri sadaqa wound to cut by Eve before the cover Tikka sadhaka whereby Luca and erson sadaqa will move our biotic Umbra Attica sadaqa.

00:08:21 --> 00:08:25

He said you can have all types of charity.

00:08:27 --> 00:08:31

If you lift a harmful thing from

00:08:32 --> 00:08:36

people's path, you have done charity.

00:08:38 --> 00:08:41

If you guide someone

00:08:43 --> 00:08:44

given directions,

00:08:46 --> 00:08:47

you have done charity.

00:08:49 --> 00:08:52

If you help a weak person

00:08:55 --> 00:08:56

you have done charity.

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

If you speak

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

for someone who can't speak for themselves by Anoka and ask them and ask them who Allah the last material column.

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

If you can speak for those who can't speak for themselves, you have done charity

00:09:18 --> 00:09:19

and even

00:09:22 --> 00:09:25

have an intimacy with your spouse is a charity.

00:09:27 --> 00:09:30

And at that point I boozer was

00:09:38 --> 00:09:44

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

a sin? He said yes. He said then fulfilling your desires in a lawful and a halal in a good way

00:10:19 --> 00:10:20

is a reward

00:10:23 --> 00:10:27

How can you count the bad deeds and not count the good ones

00:10:33 --> 00:10:41

anything we can do to help people to stop harm from reaching people to aid anyone?

00:10:42 --> 00:10:45

The weak, the downtrodden,

00:10:46 --> 00:10:47

the needy

00:10:48 --> 00:10:49

is a charity

00:10:50 --> 00:10:52

and it doesn't have to be much.

00:10:56 --> 00:10:58

And even the Allahu Allah and

00:11:00 --> 00:11:02

the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:11:04 --> 00:11:19

What in Walla Lee De Jannetty de Hulan will maruf and the people that will enter paradise first are the people who raise to charity, who are fast in doing charity. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to be of those people and to be of those who race to do good and participate in doing good and be in the four in the front runners on that race and the form of the people that would be called to enter paradise first. According matters noun stuffer Aloha Altima Lee welcome fare foes I'm Steph Curry

00:16:45 --> 00:16:46

please come forward,

00:16:47 --> 00:16:49

make room in the back

00:17:18 --> 00:17:24

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi trumaine.

00:17:27 --> 00:17:29

This race has rules.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:33

Even doing good doing charity

00:17:34 --> 00:17:35

has some rules

00:17:36 --> 00:17:53

in participating in achieving success. And the first and the pivotal the most important rule in this race is floss. Sincerity, having the good intention, having the heart

00:17:54 --> 00:17:58

participate in the act of charity before the hand and before the tongue.

00:18:00 --> 00:18:11

Whatever that act is, it has to be a sincere act being done only for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala because all acts of charity

00:18:12 --> 00:18:14

has to be understood

00:18:15 --> 00:18:27

that it is being done for the sake of our Lord for the sake of our Master, our Creator Allah subhanho wa Taala and it is done for his pleasure

00:18:31 --> 00:18:55

and our dealing when we deal with the people who receive charity, we are dealing directly with Allah subhanho wa Taala How do we know that? It's from a hadith Kotze Hadith narrated in Sahih Muslim and authentic hadith on the authority of Abu Hurayrah the Allahu and Hadith that many of us probably know very well.

00:18:57 --> 00:19:07

When the messenger SallAllahu wasallam said that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala on the Day of Judgment will say, Oh, son of Adam, yep, Now Adam married to Fallon child me.

00:19:09 --> 00:19:14

Oh, son of Adam. I was sick and you didn't come and visit me.

00:19:16 --> 00:19:20

And that person will say to Allah era because

00:19:21 --> 00:19:28

well, I'm terrible Allah mean how can I just come and visit you and you are the master of the world?

00:19:29 --> 00:19:34

He said Mr. Olympia, Abdi Falange Merida filmed out.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:38

A maluca Anika la

00:19:39 --> 00:19:48

tenia. And did you not know that my servant, so and so was sick? You knew that?

00:19:50 --> 00:19:57

Did you not know that? Had you visited him? You would see me there you would find me there.

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

So that act

00:20:01 --> 00:20:13

of charity visiting the sick check in on them. We are directing that act of charity not just to the sick it is first to Allah

00:20:17 --> 00:20:35

and it's the same Hadith yeah I'm D stopped I'm to K Edna Adam has to Tom took so long to turn me. I asked you for food and you didn't give me and the person will be stunned how come Allah is asking what Allah subhanaw taala wouldn't ask for food, Yara BK for altering Luca

00:20:36 --> 00:20:47

Amin, how can I feed you and you are the master of the world. He said, No, my servant, so and so I asked you for food and you didn't give them

00:20:48 --> 00:20:52

or you knew that he was hungry? And you could give them and you did not give him food?

00:20:53 --> 00:20:58

Did you not know that Had you given him you will find it with me.

00:21:00 --> 00:21:06

So those acts of charity. That's the first rule. The second rule

00:21:07 --> 00:21:08

is don't wait

00:21:11 --> 00:21:32

for thinking for reward from the people, or the person or the organization, or anyone that you're given that charity to whether it's a physical charity or monetary charity or any act of charity, because the reward is not going to come from that person.

00:21:33 --> 00:21:37

Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, in Amman,

00:21:38 --> 00:21:41

Allah He learned we do mean Come Jessa I wanna show Cora

00:21:43 --> 00:21:48

we are giving you this only for the sake of Allah, we want nothing back.

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

We want no reward back from you, people of this life.

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

And we want no thanks.

00:22:03 --> 00:22:12

And then the third rule. Now we'll conclude very shortly Shaohua the third rule is very important rule

00:22:14 --> 00:22:17

is when we give that act of charity

00:22:19 --> 00:22:20

not to

00:22:24 --> 00:22:26

trying to investigate too much.

00:22:28 --> 00:22:29

And think about

00:22:30 --> 00:22:38

that person really deserve it, don't really deserve it. What is going to happen to it, give and give and give?

00:22:41 --> 00:22:50

How do we know that from a hadith narrated Muslim and upon the authority of Abu Dhabi, Allah who now briefly summarize it.

00:22:51 --> 00:22:54

A man gave charity

00:22:56 --> 00:23:03

one day, went out of his house to give charity and he first person he gave was a thief.

00:23:04 --> 00:23:08

So people criticize him, why would you give to a thief

00:23:10 --> 00:23:11

and he did not respond.

00:23:12 --> 00:23:16

The second day he comes out of his house, this is Hadith in Sahih. Muslim

00:23:17 --> 00:23:18


00:23:19 --> 00:23:20

he gives

00:23:21 --> 00:23:26

a woman of ill repute charity, he gives a prostitute a charity.

00:23:29 --> 00:23:44

And people criticize him. Why would you give that woman? Chair? There's so many poor people out there. Why would you choose this wretched life? This wretched woman? Why would you choose her to give her your money? And he didn't respond.

00:23:46 --> 00:23:52

The third night? He goes out and he gives a rich man, charity.

00:23:54 --> 00:24:02

And people criticize him one more time. It's like why would you give someone who doesn't even need your charity?

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

This money.

00:24:05 --> 00:24:14

And then the Hadith concludes for OTF LP Lella. Then he was given the inspiration, whether it's from Allah or from the angels.

00:24:16 --> 00:24:18

What you have given to the thief,

00:24:19 --> 00:24:23

state Allah Allahu Istighfar and Saudi Qatar, that he

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

has become a type he

00:24:28 --> 00:24:29

has shown

00:24:31 --> 00:24:43

that he doesn't need to steal. Allah guided that person with the charity that he was given. Because when you give that person he doesn't need to steal if he was stealing out of need.

00:24:45 --> 00:24:49

He is more worthy and deserving of that sadaqa

00:24:50 --> 00:24:51

and then that woman

00:24:52 --> 00:24:59

achieved Tober because of that charity, and she doesn't need to sell her honor for money anymore.

00:25:01 --> 00:25:06

And then the rich person. When he received the charity, he learned

00:25:08 --> 00:25:15

the value of giving charity, and he himself turned from a miserly person to a generous person.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:18

So when we give,

00:25:20 --> 00:25:30

give, like the messenger salAllahu alayhi wa sallam used to give Kirlian Musella just like the wind or the rain, it falls and he gives.

00:25:31 --> 00:25:47

And he was criticized for giving software and ignore Omiya and equanimity, and many others, like why would you give these people but they turned out from the worst enemies of Islam, to the best fighters and best friends

00:25:49 --> 00:25:55

for the sake of spreading Islam, after the messenger SallAllahu wasallam.

00:25:57 --> 00:25:58

And then,

00:25:59 --> 00:26:00


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

one of the most important rules is to not follow

00:26:08 --> 00:26:11

our charity with a reminder

00:26:14 --> 00:26:15

with boasting

00:26:17 --> 00:26:18

without any

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


00:26:22 --> 00:26:28

Allah subhanho wa Taala says polar mountain format FIRA Hydro means sadaqa yes bow has

00:26:29 --> 00:26:38

a good word is better than a charity followed by harm don't hurt people with your words if you're gonna give them anything

00:26:39 --> 00:26:49

oh I'm gonna give you this guy you got to straighten out and you have to do this and I don't think are likely to do it and give them and be gentle and be nice and be good to them.

00:26:52 --> 00:26:58

They're tough to lose are the quality Campbell manual other. Allah says do not ruin

00:26:59 --> 00:27:03

your charities with reminding reminders and horn.

00:27:04 --> 00:27:07

And then finally, hurry, Rush.

00:27:08 --> 00:27:12

Don't think twice about the act of charity.

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

I will conclude with this hadith as narrated in Abu Dawood. It is narrated on the authority of Saudi Arabia cos he said the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said at to added to the condition

00:27:27 --> 00:27:28

Alethia Melilla

00:27:30 --> 00:27:36

take your time and think about every act you're going to do. Except

00:27:37 --> 00:27:53

those good acts of the hereafter. Don't think don't let it twirl in your mind when you're about to give or you're about to do an act of charity. That's what shaytaan that's what the what the demon wants you to do.

00:27:55 --> 00:28:10

Because that's their opportunity to try to swerve your way trying to persuade you to either give less or not give or not to do that act or to say I will just do it maybe tomorrow. Allah subhanaw taala says Saturday

00:28:12 --> 00:28:15

become hurry do it now and do it fast.

00:28:17 --> 00:28:48

Hurry to a forgiveness from your Lord and Jen net in our car this summer what you will art or it doesn't matter clean.
