00:00:01--> 00:00:02

Working

00:00:04--> 00:00:05

in Ireland in

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

the salon to salon

00:00:10--> 00:00:13

while he was happy he made

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

operations due to a lot and made a peace of blessings of Allah be upon our beloved Prophet Mohammed Salah longlining he was sending him

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

with the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him

00:00:28--> 00:00:30

My dear brothers and sisters in a stem cell Amani

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

today inshallah tada I want to share with you another story from monster stories of Mohammed Salah mining he was telling

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

this story that I want to share with you is found in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. So another authentic story from amongst also the stories of the Prophet Mohammed Salah mining, who was

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

the narrator of this heavy

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

this story is

00:01:09--> 00:01:10

that is a

00:01:13--> 00:01:21

loss of power subhana wa tada be placed within both Atlas and placed with in Amman and replaced with his father among

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

the above.

00:01:26--> 00:01:28

So, the

00:01:30--> 00:01:38

title of this week's lecture is the story of three minutes, trapped in a cave, and the miraculous exit.

00:01:41--> 00:01:46

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says that there were three persons,

00:01:47--> 00:01:57

three made of a people before you. So this is not the story that happened during the time of the prophet SAW Selim. But it actually happened before his time.

00:01:58--> 00:02:04

And these three men were on a journey, when they were overtaken by storm.

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

Clouds gathered,

00:02:08--> 00:02:19

the weather changed, rain started to come full down. And therefore they wanted to take shelter. And so they found the cave.

00:02:21--> 00:02:22

And they entered this cave.

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

Now,

00:02:25--> 00:03:07

the scholars have been trying to work out where this cave is. And there are those who said that it sounds as though happened in Palestine, given the mountainous terrain of of Palestine. However, we don't know exactly where this took place. And then there are reports that When did it happen was it during the time of bundle sliding the children of Israel again this does not tell us this is not really indicate which people it happened during whose time or whose era.

00:03:08--> 00:03:21

So they entered this cave to seek shelter. And then what happened is that due to the stormy weather, a rock slipped down from the mountain and blocked the exit of the case.

00:03:23--> 00:03:50

And this was the only exit from this case. So Pamela, they were trying to run away from the, you know, the storm and the rain and be protected from this. Little did they know that they're actually entering, entering a case or entering that which will subject them to a much bigger trial and put their lives into more danger.

00:03:52--> 00:03:58

So one of them, one of these three men, he said, the only way

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

the only way for deliverance.

00:04:05--> 00:04:35

To get out of this cave is no other exit is to beseech allies Our job is to make to Allah subhanho wa Taala in the name of some virtuous deeds, some good actions and good deeds. So each one of them now is going to mention a good deed coupled with the Dharma. So that perhaps Allah azza wa jal repro provides a way for them to exit this case.

00:04:36--> 00:04:39

So one of them began to suffer.

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

One of the three men, we said

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

hello.

00:04:47--> 00:04:49

My parents were very old.

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

And I used to offer them the nightly drink of milk before my children and the other members of the family would come

00:05:01--> 00:05:08

Bring some milk with him give the milk to his parents first, then he will give to these children who give to his wife.

00:05:10--> 00:05:19

One day, I went to stray far away in search of green trees, and could return only after my parents had gone to sleep.

00:05:20--> 00:05:26

So he was held back with his work, he comes home, and his parents have already gone to sleep.

00:05:29--> 00:05:40

They were fast asleep. But I did not like to disturb them, no would give any part of the meal to my children and other members of the family to after my parents had been treated.

00:05:41--> 00:05:48

Thus, with the vessel in hand, I awaited the awakening into the flesh of Dune

00:05:49--> 00:06:10

while the children cried out of hunger at my feet, when they woke up, they had a tree. So he refused to give the milk to his children out of the respect, and the love, the beard, the beautifulness that he had towards his parents.

00:06:11--> 00:06:32

So his children actually speak and you know, also a parent has a lot of love for these children, seeing your children crying, you know, really in need of that milk, you know, he insisted that his parents drink first, and then his children and other family members.

00:06:33--> 00:06:36

So then he says, He says, oh, Lord,

00:06:38--> 00:06:44

if I did this, if I did this, seeking only your pleasure,

00:06:45--> 00:06:50

then to relieve us of the distress brought upon us by this rock.

00:06:52--> 00:06:53

So then what happened?

00:06:54--> 00:07:15

The Rock moved, it moved a little, but not enough for them to pass out. Not enough for them to exit the cave. So already a miracle has begun. The Rock has moved, and now they can see a little bit of daylight.

00:07:17--> 00:07:20

When the second man, he makes

00:07:21--> 00:07:27

he suffocates and he says, a load. I had a cousin.

00:07:28--> 00:07:34

I had a cousin, whom I love her more passionately than any Loves a Woman.

00:07:36--> 00:07:46

I tried to seduce her, but she would have none of me too in a season of great hardship due to famine. She approached me for help.

00:07:48--> 00:08:02

And I gave her 120 dinars, I gave both 120 dinars uncondition that she would have relations with making

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

harem relations as you know,

00:08:06--> 00:08:07

she agreed.

00:08:09--> 00:08:26

And when we got together an hour, and I was just going to have relations with her she pleaded for a lump. She said to him, fee Allah tequila, and do not break the seal unlawfully.

00:08:27--> 00:08:34

Whereupon I moved away from her despite the fact that I decided her most passionately

00:08:36--> 00:08:43

Am I let her keep the money I had given him. So he turned away from committing heroin.

00:08:45--> 00:08:46

And he said, Oh Lord,

00:08:47--> 00:08:57

if I did this, seeking only your pleasure, then do move the distress in which we find ourselves in

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

again,

00:08:59--> 00:09:07

the rock moved a little, but not enough for them to pass out of this cave.

00:09:08--> 00:09:38

And then now the third man, he suffocates and he makes it to add to Allah azza wa jal adding a righteous theme that he did for the sake of Eliza widget. So then the third supplicated alone, I hired some laborers and paint them the Jews, but one of them left leaving behind what was due to him. So he left behind his wage, he didn't collect his wage. So now the employer

00:09:40--> 00:09:45

invested it in business, and the business prospered greatly.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

After a time the labor came back and he said, a servant of Allah, hand me or hand over to me my wages. So the employee is coming back after

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

Such a long period of time. And he's asking his employer, ex employer, to give him back only what was duty him in terms of the wage that he left with him.

00:10:12--> 00:10:14

So, the employer,

00:10:15--> 00:10:16

he said,

00:10:18--> 00:10:31

all that you see is yours. All that you see in front of you is yours. camels, cattle, goats, slaves, all of this is yours.

00:10:32--> 00:10:45

He said, Don't play a joke with me. He found that the same I earned a few dollars, yes, or 50 knots. But to say that all of this is mine. I can understand this.

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

You said a servant of Allah.

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

I showed him I'm not joking.

00:10:54--> 00:11:14

I showed him this was a joke. So what did he do? He took all of it sparing nothing. It didn't even say to him, you can keep here as a token of my appreciation, you can keep this amount or keep this will keep that no, he took everything. He took everything.

00:11:15--> 00:11:20

And then he said, this is a businessman who is

00:11:21--> 00:11:55

the employer he said a lot. If I did this, seeking only your pleasure, then do relieve us of our distress. So what happened next, the rock moved again. And all three came out of the cave, safe and sound. And that is the end of the hobby. The end of the story mentioned to us by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam through Abdullah ibn Omar would be a loved one human. And have you heard the story before?

00:11:57--> 00:12:04

Okay, there's a few more hands this time than the previous times. And when the why. Anyway, we'll talk about that maybe later on.

00:12:05--> 00:12:57

Another story from amongst the stories across our salon. And what is amazing, the story wasn't a very long story, maybe not as long as some of the previous stories that we've mentioned. But the scholars of Islam has produced many lessons and many gems, many pearls of wisdom that we can extract from this story. I wonder how many years you've extracted I did say that in Shell line one of the the stories of will get you to do the lessons for us in Shell Montana. So it will be you sharing with us the lesson but today I'm going to give you a break in show love and be prepared, be prepared. Okay, the first lesson that we can deduce or extract from the story is that it is

00:12:57--> 00:12:57

permitted.

00:12:58--> 00:13:10

It is permissible to make tawassul to Allah through Rochus actions. So, what So, what does that mean? That was truly his intercession

00:13:11--> 00:13:12

in the session.

00:13:13--> 00:13:17

Now, there is good intercession and there is

00:13:18--> 00:13:22

a PETA intercession or a haram intercession.

00:13:23--> 00:13:47

So when it comes to Torah, so, for example, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam, you know, people would come and ask the prophesied seller to make something happen. Now, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was alive, yes, they would come to him and he would besieged, he would invoke and call upon a lion surgeon, to bring about

00:13:48--> 00:14:08

a change of change in the state of affairs of things or whatever it might be. So, for example, the man who came and the professor level it was syllabus on the member. And he said that, you know, they needed rain, and the professor celebrated his hands, and he made to

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

invoke the light soldier and to the rain, it rains so much man came back the following Friday, and he said, You're, you're a slow month, too much rain.

00:14:20--> 00:14:43

So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he said around us and not on us, so the rain is still good. And then this is an example of people coming to Brazil sellin interceding and using the proper size lm s, between them an alliance our job to bring about some change or something which is beneficial.

00:14:45--> 00:14:48

Now, once the Prophet sallallahu wasallam has died,

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

you cannot ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when you cannot use the purpose or sentiments intercession some people they still do they call upon the did not

00:15:00--> 00:15:24

They call upon the prophets I send them but they call upon so called saints, you know Willie earlier and they call upon righteous people this is all wrong. This is not legislated, because Had it been legislated then at the time of the Sahaba, they would have the Sahaba would have endorsed, would have endorsed

00:15:27--> 00:15:54

the, the fact that the pumps are solid Is there a grave mistake and that would have gone to his grave, but they didn't go to his grave, which shows that is impermissible. It is not permitted to ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whilst he is dead, most he was alive, yes, you could go up to him and ask him to make dua. And whatever would happen any change of affairs or any change

00:15:55--> 00:16:00

that will come about what happened of course, by the permission of Allah azza wa jal.

00:16:01--> 00:16:06

This is something that we need to remember in sha Allah. So when it comes to our son, intercession,

00:16:08--> 00:16:10

you can make intercession

00:16:11--> 00:16:25

through righteous actions as we learned in this lesson from this Hadith, what do you mean by that? So for example, you've got an action and you know, in your heart that you did it purely for the sake of Allah azza wa jal.

00:16:27--> 00:17:06

So what you do you ask a lot, a lot, you know, it's such and such for your sake, I asked you by this action, I asked you through this righteous action that I've done for your state, I asked you a lot to please bring about or give me or bless me or or ward off his harm, whatever it might be. So this is permissible. Now of course, you can also intercede through the names and attributes of Allah azza wa jal as smacking he was effective. So you know, you can say, yeah, how you are you? You're allowed. You're a man yo Rahim.

00:17:08--> 00:17:21

Yeah, you know, any of the names of Allah azza wa jal. You can use them to intercede when asking Allah azza wa jal. This is another legislative form of, of intercession tawassul as it's called tawassul.

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

There is a good book written about

00:17:26--> 00:17:33

him on level two either I recommend if you are interested in this topic, to read this book, called our students in Arabic, it's in English.

00:17:35--> 00:17:45

But that will give you a lot more information about the concept and in the area of tawassul between what is permissible and what is impermissible.

00:17:46--> 00:17:54

Another lesson number two is the power and the fruits of adequate. We learn about the power and the fruits of taqwa

00:17:55--> 00:18:39

in rescuing a person from his trial, from her trial, or from a challenging and difficult situation. That when you have the taqwa of Allah azza wa jal, when you are when you are a person, who, who feels Allah who resists Allah, who is always conscious of Allah, this ductwork can deliver you out of stress, and out of misfortunes, and our top calamities and we see that these three men that enter this cave, they seem to be people who feel alive so we can tell by the actions that they stated that they are people who Allah is a priority in the life. Allah says

00:18:40--> 00:18:42

in Surah Allah

00:18:43--> 00:18:47

verse number two, he says, When tequila

00:18:51--> 00:19:44

tequila that is whoever has the taqwa of Allah azza wa jal, Allah azza wa jal provides for him a way out. I must Raj Mahajan exit. So, if the condition is if you want for them to be exits, during times of difficulty, during difficult moments of your life, difficult chapters of your life, it needs to be tough work, there needs to be the fear of Allah azza wa jal and those who remember Allah azza wa jal during the times of ease, he will remember them during the times of hardship. So this is another lesson that we learned that these three men that had remembered Allah azza wa jal, during the times of ease, and when a difficult moment overcame them, they were overcome by this challenge. By this

00:19:44--> 00:19:50

difficulty, Allah azza wa jal provided for them our way out from where they least expected it.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

And that's why in this very is what I read to you from Allah. Allah, Allah Maharajah

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

why our resume in high school a

00:20:03--> 00:20:40

while and not only this is not a last panel Thailand provide a way out. But it gives you risk, sustenance. He blesses you, from where you least expected, from where you least expected it comes. So come along, you have no idea and you think that's a there is no way out of this. There is no way out whatsoever and then all of a sudden, Allah azza wa jal, he blesses from where you live as expected. This is why it's important to always be maintaining a strong connection with Allah azza wa jal.

00:20:42--> 00:20:48

The third lesson that we can deduce from this story is the importance of

00:20:49--> 00:21:09

the importance of supplication in vocation, beseeching Allah azza wa jal always do i is the weapon of unbeliever do i is the weapon of a believer of a movement of a Muslim. So especially when a trial

00:21:10--> 00:21:23

or difficult or difficulty before a Muslim, and Allah has commanded us a lot of soldier has commanded us to make to act to him. As we read in

00:21:25--> 00:21:31

verse 16, Allah azza wa jal says, buku money he blew.

00:21:32--> 00:21:37

And what color of blue and you know has said, because

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

that means call upon me.

00:21:41--> 00:21:52

Call upon me, as the chief, I will answer your I will answer you In other words, I will answer and I will respond to your suffocation.

00:21:54--> 00:22:02

alonza which is me. And that's why in certain Baqara after the age of cm and fasting Ramadan

00:22:03--> 00:22:09

what he does very badly it but in the hurry. Fuji Buddha was a dairy.

00:22:11--> 00:22:25

And when my servants asked you about me, I need an answer. The supplication would you dour today answer the supplication of a sub potato when he calls upon me. So do I.

00:22:26--> 00:22:29

And I mean, he was lm say

00:22:31--> 00:22:52

that for you making, even though you're asking for yourself, even though you asked Allah subhanho wa Taala, to endow you with in Delhi with one of his blessings and favors. This asking in and of itself is an act of worship. So you will be also rewarded for your act of worship.

00:22:53--> 00:22:57

When it comes to your brothers and sisters in Islam, sometimes allies

00:22:58--> 00:23:29

will answer your drive and we'll give you what you want. Or sometimes he will remove some sort of ham. So he will not give you what you want. But he might remove a ham or an evil that was adapted before you all the third instance is that Allah azza wa jal he postpones the fruits of that until the Day of Judgment until the Hereafter, so you to add is never lost. You never goes to waste.

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

It is never in vain.

00:23:33--> 00:23:34

A Da

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

Da is a bed.

00:23:40--> 00:23:46

manliness and Illa Allah, Allah Allah becomes angry with you. Ask Allah

00:23:49--> 00:23:57

even if it's for something very, very minute and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to help you make your decisions through select

00:23:58--> 00:24:03

which is a solid choice because apart from the fact that you pray and then you make

00:24:05--> 00:24:48

a staccato, you say the actual wording so that Allah subhana wa tada can give you guidance from a monster glad that you can always say during the times of difficulty and hardship, along with another human the rusty What can he show LFC our love, inspire me and him newcity inspire me with guidance and protect me from the evil of my own self. I love him and he rusty mcleaney Sherman FC. This is the state of a movement. A believer who's always turning back to Allah azza wa jal during the times of hardship during times of distress, during the times of calamity for Allah He is only an ally so a gentleman can remove that from you.

00:24:49--> 00:24:54

As we saw in the story, these people they tend to follow through the graph and look at the fruits of the diet.

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

Move on inshallah tada to the the fourth

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

Lesson. The fourth lesson that we can deduce from this story is to do with be rude while driving dutifulness towards parents and being good to your parents, as we saw in the story of this man who would not give his own children milk

00:25:19--> 00:25:48

before giving to his parents, so beware the thing beautifulness towards parents is from amongst the most beloved of righteous actions and deeds to Allah subhanho wa Taala and it is one of the best actions that bring you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala Varun, by the day, you want to get closer to Allah azza wa jal make sure that you are close to your parents, make sure you are close to your parents.

00:25:50--> 00:26:11

It is also one of the ways that liberates a person from the hardships of dunya. And if you're after you want to be liberated from hardships in this life, you want to be freed and liberated from the hardships of the Hereafter, then make sure you are connecting with your parents, you are maintaining the ties of kinship, that you are practicing.

00:26:12--> 00:26:32

in all of its forms, it could be you know, suppose it could be SMS that you send your parents every day to remind them that you love them. It could be a phone call, it could be a visit, it could be helping, helping out any way of communicating your love and your respect towards them is part of Google by the time

00:26:35--> 00:26:56

we move on in Chicago Tyler, but before I do, I want to make a point regarding as you can also see in this Hadeeth in this story is that a preference should be given to the service of parents, even over the service of one's own wife and children. servicing your your parents

00:26:58--> 00:27:16

comes or precedes the service of your own spouse, your unwind, or your children. So remember this is this is how important it is to practice video anyway, the thing.

00:27:17--> 00:27:20

The fifth lesson that we can deduce from this story

00:27:22--> 00:28:11

is fearing Allah subhanho wa Taala is from the acts of worship that won't have harm, and that protects a person from falling into promiscuous, promiscuous, promiscuous acts will furnish as they call it. And if we reflect, if we reflect on the story, we find that it was the fear of Allah that led that led to the man abstaining from committing Zina. It was the fear of Allah that prevented him from falling into the factory shed into fornication. And which was one of the reasons that made them exist, okay. So the fear of Allah azza wa jal, when you have the fear of Allah azza wa jal, that can prevent and war of many harms in your life.

00:28:14--> 00:28:25

Number six, the sixth lesson that we can learn from this story is that not everyone that commits a sin is destroyed and deserves the punishment of Allah.

00:28:26--> 00:29:06

A person may work and take the steps towards committing a sin, just like the one who wanted to commit Zina with his cousin in the story. However, he repented and he turned away before actually going ahead, going ahead with the sin, out of fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This person is actually rewarded for obtaining his knifes from his from, from committing this sin. He abstained and didn't. He didn't actually obey his desires.

00:29:07--> 00:29:39

A person may commit a sin, and he may repent. And Allah accepts Cisco, but a lot of tips is repentance. And his situation after the repentance is actually better than his condition before his repentance. So Subhana Allah, Allah puts you in certain situations, and he wants you to repent, he wants you to turn back to him. And that situation that repaints that repentance makes you a better person than what you were previously to this situation.

00:29:41--> 00:29:59

Another lesson from amongst the lessons that we can deduce from this story number seven, is that sometimes my brothers and sisters in this thing, we come across some very difficult moments in our lives, very challenging trialing moments or circumstances that may push us then push

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

same person who loves and face a love to committing haram

00:30:06--> 00:30:18

even though you feel love, even though you love Allah. But sometimes some situations are so, so so difficult that it can that even the best of us can find ourselves.

00:30:19--> 00:30:31

God going towards the heroine heading towards the heroine. And we saw this in the story whereby the female cousin, she was in need of that money. She was

00:30:32--> 00:30:42

in such need of that money that she accepted to do. haram with it with her cousin, she accepted that.

00:30:45--> 00:31:37

But remember, my dear brothers and sisters in a scam, that hill, May, May may be just around the corner. Sometimes we hasty sometimes we think no, we just have we can't stand this anymore. We can't bear this anymore. But sometimes the hope is just around the corner. If only we practiced a little bit more summer, if only we practice a little bit more patience. And this is why again and again in the for an alliance in over 100 places some 102 places in number and Allah talks about sub patience and the importance of patience. So, let us always remain patient and not be hasty. Because when we are hasty, we could be forfeiting something which is beneficial and very good for us. So Allah

00:31:37--> 00:31:43

soprano was Island. He says in Surah Yusuf, he says in, in a woman yet,

00:31:44--> 00:31:48

in a woman yet, while your spirit, for any number has

00:31:49--> 00:32:02

machinery, there is the those who have Taqwa. Those who have the fear of America was an inner human warrior spirit, and has patience for enough.

00:32:05--> 00:32:19

That when you have suffer, when you have the fear of Allah and you reveal lies in the tepee, while your spirit and he has patience, Allah does will not allow for the reward of the

00:32:20--> 00:32:37

person who could do well to be lost is a two very important ingredients to remember, especially when you are going through challenging moments of your life. If you are going through a challenging moment in your life, then remember these two things. Remember,

00:32:38--> 00:32:42

remember to feel a lot better because as I said earlier,

00:32:44--> 00:32:53

the whoever has taqwa of Allah, the fear of Allah, Allah provides a way out for him, just like he provides for these people in the cave.

00:32:56--> 00:32:57

So and here,

00:33:01--> 00:33:06

have Subhan Allah, who will reward them, Allah Subhana Allah will not

00:33:09--> 00:33:58

allow for the reward, or the compensation to be lost, you will be compensated in one way or another for your difficulty for your muscles for your hardship, but just be patient, it will happen. It could be just around the corner. Remember this mother, brothers and sisters in Islam. The eighth lesson that we can deduce from this story is the virtue and the merit of safeguarding the rights of others. If someone entrust you with something, look after it's a man and a man is a trust. If somebody gives you something, and says, Can you please take care of this for me, whatever it is, whatever it is, then we have a duty, we have a duty before our lives our job to take care of that

00:33:58--> 00:34:10

which is which is entrusted to us. So as part of his last part of event that we we look after that we safeguard other people's properties, and other people's and their net.

00:34:12--> 00:34:32

So we saw in the story, how the employer, he preserved the wage of his employee and he invested it on his behalf. He actually went extra and he he invested it for you. And he gave him everything as a result of that investment and that money spent nothing took everything.

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

Another lesson that we can deduce from this story number nine, is that laborers workers, people who are working for you should always be treated fairly, should always be treated fairly. To not oppress your employees. Do not oppress them. Do not oppress those who you own money towards even though there may be rich if you own

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

Somebody's money

00:35:02--> 00:35:37

and you have agreed to pay on a certain date, then Islam teaches us to pay your debts on time. And in one Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, McLuhan de vaanam, that when you postpone when you postpone your creditor, this is a form of oppression. And when you commit oppression, in this dunya, oppression will be multiplied for you on the Day of Judgment, it vumat Yo man pm.

00:35:39--> 00:35:48

So be careful, my dear brothers and sisters, don't impress anybody, don't oppress yourselves, because that's what you're doing by oppressing others, you are actually oppressing yourself.

00:35:50--> 00:35:51

So

00:35:53--> 00:35:54

if someone has paid

00:35:55--> 00:35:57

to a labor of less than his juice,

00:35:58--> 00:36:07

okay, this is this is a form of oppression. And, of course, you should pay the employee who laborers in a decent manner.

00:36:08--> 00:36:39

The 10th lesson that we can deduce from this story is that it is legislated to spend the wealth of others in your possession, if there is a benefit in doing so for the owner. So someone gives you money, and it's just sitting there, and you want to invest it for the person, so that maybe it's not eaten up by the pet, because you know, once worth sits there, there's going to be a cap that is payable, that's of course, if it reaches the default and the how it comes about.

00:36:40--> 00:36:41

Now.

00:36:42--> 00:37:32

So, scholars are of the view, many scholars are of the view that you are allowed to invest the wealth of a person who has entrusted you with that wealth. However, in saying that, there is differences of opinion, not all agreement, this, there are differing views regarding this, some allow it and some don't allow. Now, the next lesson number 11. The next lesson is we say that there is a Baraka there is a blessing in working in agriculture, farming. So there's a lot of Baraka in, in, in this field in this area, as we saw when in the story, a small amount of wage, and what it brought about in terms of cattle and camels and slaves and other things that the person bought with

00:37:32--> 00:37:33

it.

00:37:34--> 00:38:14

We move on to the next lesson number 12. inshallah, either, and that poverty, that poverty could lead a person to commit grave sins. So Pamela, you may be many of us who don't feel that way. We have been blessed because we have wealth for company left, we live affluent lifestyles, we live in a country whereby hamdulillah we have a lot of financial support from the government, we have a lot of work opportunity. But there are many people in the world. And actually 80% of the world are poverty stricken.

00:38:15--> 00:39:07

And some poverty may lead a person to commit crimes, it could be fifth, it could be working, it could be drugs, it could be really with heroin, things, it could be prostitution. Okay, so we can learn from the story that as we as we learn from the story with it with the with the female cousin, the female cousin was ready to commit a serious offense, she was ready to fall into sin, she was ready to commit fornication because of her state. So, we see that poverty could lead a person to commit a grave sin such as prostitution, prostitution. And now in saying that, those who give sadaqa now remember this, so therefore, when you are giving sadaqa sadaqa is a charity and the circle, the

00:39:07--> 00:39:18

word circle comes from sin, it is comes from your truthfulness. And when you give sadaqa it's a reflection of your truthfulness in your love towards Allah subhanaw taala.

00:39:19--> 00:39:25

So when you give sadaqa to a poor woman, or when you give her the cup to an orphan girl,

00:39:27--> 00:39:50

or when you give sadaqa to a widow, all these different females, not only are you being rewarded for the soccer, how you get rewarded, you get rewarded immensely for the soccer club, but you are also helping the prevention of these women from going to do harm. That's another benefit. And the third benefit would be also

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

preventing the spread of disease and look at how many diseases we have in the world as a result of illegitimate relationships.

00:40:00--> 00:40:54

There's a lot of a lot of good that comes out of your setup which you give for the sake of alliances, or whichever. And the 13th 13th lesson that we can deduce from this story is that helaas sincerity is one of the two keys. He's one of the two fundamentals for our actions being accepted by the laws of nature. Now, each one of these three men, they called upon Allah subhanaw taala. And, and they, and they said, and then in the actual Hadith, they said, Look, if I did this seeking only your pleasure, in other words, if I did this out of sincerity, if I did this app, out of the loss of sincerity, then relief us, make us exit out of this distress. So it's very, very clear the

00:40:54--> 00:41:12

importance when you do an act of worship, but you do it for the sake of Allah, don't do it to please your parents. Don't do it to please your friends, don't do it to look good. When you do something to please Allah, Allah replace with you. And Allah puts pleasure into the hearts of people by automatically.

00:41:13--> 00:41:21

So when you do an act, you do for the sake of Allah. So we're in our manual bidding yet that actions are based upon intentions.

00:41:22--> 00:42:08

This is a very important point. Now, I said, each one of two important ingredients, because we say, for the for the acceptance of any act of worship, any act of worship that you do, it needs to be two conditions. The first condition is sincerity. And the second condition is conformity with the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu, it was said that the act of worship that you were doing has a basis in the Quran, or in the actions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So it's very important that you you always reflect and think this act that I'm doing, why am I doing it? Am I looking to seek pleasure, or I'm doing it for some materialistic gain. If you were doing a facade, materialistic

00:42:08--> 00:42:21

game, change your intention, change your need, change it and do the sake of Allah, make sure that what you were doing, conforms with the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Allah while he was sending.

00:42:22--> 00:42:25

So, we learn to hear the importance of sincerity.

00:42:26--> 00:42:27

Number 14.

00:42:28--> 00:42:49

And this is related to the sincerity point, that any derive any supplication which is made sincerely, and with real sense of humbleness is granted by law so much, sooner or later. So you just have to be sincere, and you need to call upon Allah Subhana, Allah, Thailand, and then sooner or later, you

00:42:51--> 00:42:52

will be accepted to

00:42:54--> 00:42:55

the 15.

00:42:56--> 00:43:33

Allah subhanho wa Taala. And sometimes he hopes his pious men, people, even in an unusual manner, Allah can help you in such a way where you least expected, which is so unusual, you can have this happen. I can't believe this is happening to me. I thought I was ruined. I thought I was destroyed. I thought that it can last nothing's going to change and deliver me out of this hardship. And then all of a sudden, Allah azza wa jal, he delivers you out of the most challenging of situations.

00:43:34--> 00:43:57

And this is sometimes he does it through what's known as cut on max Karana. Like an extraordinary, something extraordinary happens, a miracle. like we saw in this story whereby a rock that is blocking the cave has actually moved by the will of Allah azza wa jal, because everything happens by the will of Allah azza wa jal, and this is part of

00:43:58--> 00:44:02

that we said, consists of four components.

00:44:03--> 00:44:24

Our journey includes the ally soldier has knowledge of everything. Allah knows what has happened. Allah knows what is happening. Allah knows what will happen. Allah knows how things will happen. A lot of power dialer knows what would have happened had something happen, that didn't happen. Even I get confused thinking about that one. Okay. So,

00:44:25--> 00:44:34

this is the knowledge of Allah azza wa jal, the second component of a thought is that everything has been written in Allah.

00:44:36--> 00:44:38

Everything has been written in the preserved tablet.

00:44:40--> 00:44:50

Everything has been recorded. The third component is Allah. So adyen everything happens. Everything happens by the will of allies.

00:44:52--> 00:44:57

And the fourth component is that everything that happens is created by lies

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

about the other six

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

Six pillar of Amen.

00:45:03--> 00:45:14

So, yes, miracles can happen even in our time. caromed can happen a lot can bless a person with a certain skill or ability

00:45:15--> 00:45:27

and and this does not only happen to the profits but it's happening to also righteous people and miracles and wonders both appear with the will of Allah has a phenomenal side

00:45:28--> 00:46:17

number 16 the 16th lesson that we can extract from this short story is that Allah subhanaw taala when if he's one of these things and attributes when it is actually preaches that he is a semia He's the Oh hearing Allah subhana wa Tada. From above the seven heavens. He heard that he heard the supplications of these three men alike and he you have to shout out to Allah azza wa jal. You don't have to be very loud. Allah azza wa jal he's, he knows he he's in he sees the footsteps of the black ends and to the Black Rock in the Black Knight alive so here he is unperceived He's semir so we need to just ask you to turn to a loss of cannibal to Ireland.

00:46:18--> 00:46:25

The last point that I want to mention in shallow data will last lesson. This is number 16. Number 17.

00:46:26--> 00:46:47

Is that is your Eman is your faith that carries you to do good. And it is your Eman and your faith that will help you to keep away from heroin. So it is very important to always work on your emails to do Eman workouts, Emad workouts.

00:46:49--> 00:47:16

Amen. Versus, you know, there are many ways of boosting your image, through the actions of the heart through sincerity, through dependence on the last panel dialogue, through your pain, having certainty, through belief is the actions of the hub, the actions of the tongue, by remembering Allah, same kind of love and hungry to learn, learn to love Allah Subhana Allah will be hanging around the love love him

00:47:17--> 00:47:41

by reciting the Quran, by to iron. These are ways of boosting your emails through the actions of the tongue. And then we have the actions of the limbs through the Select through cm through hedge through a number of through sadhaka the actions of the limbs. So when we exercise our Eman through the actions of the tongue, through the actions of

00:47:43--> 00:48:18

the leaves, and the actions of the heart of a man will increase and then we'll find ourselves not committing so much heroin, very minimal harm and it is what will then drive us to commit and to do more. To do more righteous deeds, my dear brothers and sisters in the snap, these are the words I leave you with inshallah we'll tie that regarding another very beautiful story from amongst disposal the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked Allah subhanaw taala to bless us with beneficial knowledge and knowledge, which is in accordance with the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:48:19--> 00:48:24

Africa in the company level up in Ireland for salatu salam ala nabina
