You can begin Doctor below

I'd like to welcome you to the

And this is 60 B. We did 60 A in our previous session

near you anyway, we will
progress on to our main session, main program.
And, as I said earlier, this is the 60 F session session 60, B, A Lohani, the rich the independent, the name
In our series
so, it's part two
revising the Quranic location, the divine name and the money is mentioned in 18 places in the Quran. Among them is what Allahu La nee you are Unterman for Quran, Allah is Rich, while all of you are poor and needy. So Mohammed, verse 38, in terms of the meaning,
linguistically, when he comes from the trilateral route, I known Yeah. And the winner is the verbal noun,
which has four main meanings. The first main meaning is to be self sufficient and independent. And the second is to be free from needs or wants.
The third main meaning is to be satisfied and contented and the fourth is to be wealthy and rich.
This route appears some 73 times in the Quran and five derived forms
of money is the file intensive form pattern of Lohani.
pattern, the present participle, present participle
When use generally refers to a state of relative independence, due to one being relatively self sufficient.
The opposite of Lena is Fokker poverty, which refers to being in a state of need and as such is applicable only to Allah's creation not to himself.
faqeer is the Arabic term, the adjective used to describe a poor person coming from the same route?
known and yeah.
no one is without need, except Allah. That's the reality.
And everyone is completely dependent on him.
Whether they know it or not.
Therefore, Allah Allah honey is the only one who truly transcends all needs and weaknesses, was completely satisfied due to his complete lack of all needs. And he is the one upon whose wealth riches and blessings all others depend.
And as we mentioned earlier, the linking of Allah Vani and Hamid is some
10 times out of 18 times the delivery is mentioned in the Quran. For example, or my work or my
well my ether Wallah for in Allahu Allah honey, you will Hamid
and whoever turns away a law is sufficient self sufficient and most praised
to Allah Montana.
The possible reason for this linking
is that as human beings we are admiringly a we admiringly, look up at the rich and praise them for their wealth, even though most of them don't share their wealth with the less fortunate.
In a state of all, we commonly admire and praise their wealth based status. However, we usually save our highest praises and greatest respect for the most philanthropic among the rich and
Famous. Allah has combined these two divine names in order to stress to us the importance of thankfully praising him for everything we have in this life, no matter how small the blessing may seem, because it all came from ALLAH.
So he is both infinitely wealthy, and most deserving of all praise, due to his countless bounties bestowed upon his creation.
Furthermore, the relatively wealthy believers are instructed to regularly donate portions from their wealth, in charity,
not because of any need which Allah has from them, but in order that we become a part of the praiseworthy efforts to decrease the gap between the rich and the poor in our societies.
As to the portion of what is God is given,
which actually reaches a law. When we give, we're giving it for the sake of Allah, but what of it reaches Allah?
It is only our pious intentions, our mindfulness of Allah,
which should be behind our charitable acts, as the Almighty said, regarding the ritual, animal sacrifices during Hajj.
Wallonian Allah, no, no, ha. Well, I demand her. Well, I can you're now No, you're not who Taqwa Minh.
Neither their meat, nor their blood reaches him, reaches Allah. But it is your piety that reaches in to Al Hajj, verse 37.
Whenever the believers give sincerely and charity, they should know that Allah is the richest Alani and he will reward them for their charity and multiplied many times over.
Consequently, complete science and praise known as Hamed where Hamid comes from belongs to Allah with Al Hamid alone.
Since everything belongs to him, no one can do him any favors. As It Is he alone who does everyone favorites
in terms of Allah's unique self sufficiency, injury, or Tabari,
said regarding the verse in Surah Baqarah verse 267, while Mo and Allah Vani Yoon Hamid know that Allah is self sufficient and praiseworthy,
or people know that Allah has no need for your charitable donations or anything else. The early instructed you to give charitably and made it an obligation in the form of Zakah. To be paid from your wealth as a mercy from himself for you, in order to make your dependents independent, to strengthen the weak among you, and that you be thanked for it in the next slide, and rewarded and not from any need he has from you.
All of creation is in need of Him as Allah said, Yeah, you are not uncommon for Barah Illa Allah, Allahu Allah Vani you Hamid
are people you are the poor and in need of Allah, while Allah is the rich, the Praiseworthy, Surah Fateha verse 15 Ally is in no need of anyone
in what he created, or creates what He planned or is planning.
He gives any provides for He judges and allows to take place, no one can repel his decision, and he's able to do whatever he wishes.
Now in terms of the application, according to Eben bottles for principals in the previous session, we completed Part One of session 6068, in which we covered the linguistic aspects of the name Avani as we did this time, but in more detail.
And we looked at the four principles for adopting and applying the Beautiful Names of Allah, as suggested by the 11th century and the Lucien scholar in Imam Ali Bin caliph, Alberta in Alberta,
who died in 1057 C. That's the 11th century from Cordova.
In part two of session 60, we will cover the second way of adoption, which is to strive to become generous, a generous Friend of Allah, rich in faith and relatively independent of the creation. In this session, we will also complete the remaining three principles have been battles, for proposed principles for adopting and applying the Beautiful Names of Allah.
So, we did the first part of
the first principle that is to adopt where applicable, we're now continuing the second part. The second way of adoption of the Divine Name of money is to become a friend of Allah, rich in faith, and independent of creation. In order to become rich in faith and free from addictions to creation. Our goal in life has to be beyond this material life in which we have found ourselves. We have to be able to realize that this world is temporary and not worth becoming addicted to, in spite of its enjoyment. Its dazzle and its glitter. Consequently, the final messenger removed the veils, hiding the reality of this world, and severely warned us against making it our goal. It was reported to him
said, Men Canada, dunya Hama, for a lot Allahu alayhi Umrah, whoever makes this life this world, his goal, his main goal, his or her main goal.
Allah was scattered their affairs
and make them in constant fear of poverty.
But he will only acquire from this world
what was already decreed for him,
that person who made this life, his or her goal.
In the end, after all the focusing on this world and confusion which comes along with it,
they will only get what Allah had already written for them.
On the other hand, Allah will gather the affairs of those who focused on the hereafter
and made their hearts contented
and the treasures of this world will be forced to humbly chase him or chase them.
Woman cannot in akhira, Anita, Gemma Allahu Allahu amre wa Gianna he now who feel kalbi?
Well attached to dunya, we're here Alima.
So the focus shifts. This is the one who will be successful in this life,
to the ashira, the one who makes his or her goal or focus, the life to come,
then allow will gather all their fears, everything will fall into place. They will not have their affairs scattered all over. They're running from pillar to post all over the place. Allow bring them all together.
And they will give they will be given contentment of heart their hearts will be contented with their situation
and the treasures of the world which everybody else is chasing. They will chase him.
They will come humbly to him are
the dire consequences of having one's affair scattered is repeatedly witnessed every year. We're in a number of millionaires commit suicide, after having lived the materialists dream of becoming a millionaire. Consider for example 35 year old Jonathan Rafe, a young British millionaire after selling his
and his father's land and portable and a portable cabin business for 30 million pounds which is $46 million.
By all accounts,
he was externally a happy and well adjusted young man.
However, in 2009, he unexpectedly took his shotgun and killed himself blew his head off, leaving no suicide note.
No clear reason could be
found for wraiths action, but there was some speculation that he was extremely stressed by his father's recent stroke. It seems that this may have proven to be too much for the young man to take that affair is or confused.
Can can't wait is a FERS property. He's I am black, was a Jewish American businessman,
and a millionaire controller of the United brands company. An astute and forward thinking capitalist. Blacks career included stints with Lehman Brothers,
and then the American seal cap company, which he renamed a Mk.
The early 70s saw MK merged with United Fruit Company.
His downfall was rooted in the discovery of a 2.5 million bribe, which he offered the president of Honduras to reduce export taxes on his bananas, but he was important in the US,
taking matters into his own hands before the scandal, hit the newsstands, television etc. Black client of the 44th floors of his office building
and leapt off
the 44th floor
into the crowded Park Avenue,
New York City
to the horror of onlookers from below.
Not to mention
a 49 year old father of two
who took his own life after becoming seriously depressed in the fallout of a 50 billion
takeover 50 billion pound takeover to $77 billion
the takeover of ABN AMRO by the Royal Bank of Scotland, the Dutch millionaire bankers body was discovered in a woodland area several miles away from his home in London. A suicide note to his wife, Frederick,
that was found on his body read, that he could not go on.
He drove to a very isolated location in the woods then sat and use the shotgun to end his own life.
Because of this reality,
the reality of
that comes where one's life is focused on this world. The Prophet SAW Salem taught his followers that real wealth was not material.
Whenever wealth is spoken about we always think about it in terms of money, gold, silver, diamonds, rubies, property, etc.
That is the various forms of material wealth. However, from a laws perspective, in the greater scheme of things, real wealth is what it takes to buy us a place in Genda that's the real wealth. I will wear according to the promises Allama saying Leysin Mahina and Catherine arrow. Lakin. Rena, Rena knifes would like in Elena, Venus, which is not having many possessions. Rather, true wealth is richness of the soul. We should remind ourselves regularly
that the greatest amount of wealth that anyone can possess is contentment with the decree of Allah.
a heart at rest. Consequently, we should always strive to achieve satisfaction known as radar
that Allah is pleased with us
with whatever elevation He gives us,
or whatever he withholds from us,
as this is the spiritual key to tranquility of our souls.
In the context of being wealthy, this peace and tranquility in our souls can only be achieved when we remember and reflect on the laws of the inner is limitless wealth, and our total poverty or fucker
I need of Him as the law said, I live
be liquid light of my inner.
It is only with the remembrance of Allah that hearts find rest to arrive. Verse 28.
true success lies in making wealth of the heart, our primary targets in life,
which can only be achieved by truly setting the life to come as our immediate goal, not as our long term goal. If we make the hereafter our long term goal, our focus will end up being on this life and our life to come, the real goal will be quickly forgotten and clouded over
what is out of sight, as they say, is out of mind.
Instead, considering how short this life is, for each and every one of us,
the fact that we could die at any moment, because who knows
when death will be upon us.
The hereafter should be our short term goal.
And on the basis of it, everything else should be wait.
Consequently, the Prophet SAW Salem encouraged us to remember death often.
That's to keep us properly focused on our most immediate goal or short term goal, making it to Jenna.
So, def is an escape of inescapable reality.
A bitter reality, which every human must face sooner or later,
as Allah said, not for no further na benaco al Mote, well, my nationally must moutain I have decreed deaths among you, and nothing can prevent my degree. So our walk out, where 60
people would rather not remember the inevitability of death, or even talk about death, except when someone actually dies. However, according to the province, as our limit should be remembered, often
he ominously named it, the pleasure destroyer,
our addiction to wealth, to the accumulation of wealth, and the resulting pleasures, which come from success. In this pursuit, remain remains an attractive glittery lure until it's ended by death.
Which is why the Prophet SAW Salem strongly advises to reflect on death regularly before it is too late. I've already reported that the Messenger of Allah said, X siru zikr has the MILA that
remember often the destroyer of pleasures? Yes.
When we seriously reflect on our impending death, we immediately realize that this life is temporary. And time is in fact running out. If we remember it often, it will change our overall outlook on life.
It will cause us to look at life more seriously. And this world and its pleasures will become less sparkling and glittery and attractive at
the end of the day, the Prophet SAW Salem advised us to make a short prayer prior to going to sleep.
This prayer most people neglect it contains the final death reminder
to be said each and every night.
The Prophet SAW Solomon's companion for later even Alia man related that whenever the Prophet SAW Selim intended to sleep, he would pray prior to sleep saying Bismillah Allahumma mu to or Asha
and your name will Allah I die, come back to life.
Each and every time that we close our eyes to go to sleep, whether at night or during the day, we have no certainty that we will ever open them again in this life.
It is estimated that while one in every four people die from heart disease
more than one in every eight people
die in their sleep.
It is lot more common than we imagine.
A lot of points towards this daily phenomenon of sleep death, saying Allah who hit the Waffen amphis Hina motiva will let the lambda moot FIM Anamika Allah takes the souls at the time of their death, as well as those who have not died in their sleep.
When we sleep, our consciousness fades and we lose control over ourselves.
Though our bodily functions continue to operate, our consciousness shifts to a different level of operation than prior to sleep. It may be said that our soul enters into an alternate state, closely related to that of death.
Whoa lady at our fakuma Lane, Allah said, and it is he who takes your souls at night and sleep Sorella number 60.
Every time we go to sleep, we experience a form of death.
It is a daily reminder that one day it will be the real thing, a one way journey with no return to this world.
narrated that on one occasion the Messenger of Allah was on a journey, during which they slept until the sun rose they overslept Salatin fudgey when they awoke, the Prophet SAW Selim said to them,
Verily, you are all dead. And Allah return your souls to you. In a coma Kuntum am water for Rod Allahu La Khun Ottawa Haku. So whoever sleeps and misses a prayer, let him offer it when he wakes up, and whoever forgets a prayer, let him offer it. When he remembers.
Jabir ibn Abdullah,
he reported that the problem is, as Sam was asked, on one occasion, or messenger of ALLAH, do the people of paradise sleep. The Messenger of Allah replied, sleep is the sister of death
and the people of paradise do not sleep.
In another narration, perhaps on another occasion, the process alum,
when asked the same question was reported to have said, sleep is the brother of death, and the people of paradise do not die.
So there's a close affinity or closeness between sleep and death, and we should remember it. Remembering death also helps to soften the heart. It is narrated on a woman complained to Ayesha of hardness in her heart, she told her, I should told her remember death often, for that will soften your heart. She did that and then informed Aisha that her heart had become soft.
Core to be
Mama's got to be also related that notable scholars
remembering death deters one from sin.
Two, it softens the heart heart. And three, it stops one from being over delighted with this world
and makes disasters bearable. Number four.
accumulation of wealth
is the biggest distraction
from focusing on our most important short term goal, the hereafter.
Consequently, Allah has clearly and repeatedly warned us of its grave destructive characteristic saying and how como takaful
competition in the accumulation of wealth diverts you from Allah. So at the gospel Rizwan hearts and minds dedicated to the accumulation of wealth, do not have time to think about death.
Their affairs are scattered by law, as the pursuit of wealth become so great
that the slightest loss completely destroys them.
So many examples we spoke about before.
This year, April 28 2021, a New York City investor jumped to his death from a skyscraper near Trump Tower.
In an apparent suicide just days before, his assets firm, once valued at $20 billion was liquidated.
He had slumped to a big loss.
From 20 billion, it got down to 3 million
17 billion loss.
Still having 3 billion
is itself so massive. But that was enough to cause this man to kill himself.
Consequence. Consequently, Allah warns us to see our wealth as not an end in and of itself, but as merely a means to an end.
And one of the trials and tests of this life
there among the trials and tests for us to see how we handled what Allah granted us, not for a lot to know how we will handle it, as he already knew about how we will handle it before the tests were even given the tests are for us. Not for a law ronamoon And I'm I'm Wailuku we're allowed to come fitna know that your wealth and your children are only a test through our Langfang verse 28. For many people, the pursuit of wealth becomes their rights of worship.
Worshiping one worshiping wealth, to the exclusion of God.
The wealth becomes a god in and of itself, the prophesy Sanlam ominously warned us ties up the dinar, what did the worshipper of the dinar and the Durham the dollar and the pound will always be wretched, or I guess now to be the dollar and the yen.
A life wasted in the worship of the almighty dollar or yen, the job, the car the house, the entertainment in the holidays, is merely another victory for Satan in his prize in his pride driven battle, to drag as many souls from among humankind and the jinn into the Hellfire along with him. May Allah help us
all to wake up before it is too late.
A principle to keep in mind is that we should not in this world beg or ask from others. When there is really no need. There is no real need.
But this is happening people say I am it's true, we shouldn't do so. But so many people are engaged in it without even realizing it. For many unable to succeed in business, loans become the next best option to live a relatively luxurious life.
The global Reba based Western banking system which dominates the world today, vigorously promotes the goal of life as being the accumulation of as much wealth as possible.
As it's popularly said, You only live once, so
enjoy while you can.
Consequently, most people today live beyond their means by buying on credit and paying interest.
Most clients of the banks are in fact benders assess X accessing wealth, which they haven't earned on a promise to pay the money back with interest.
They have become enslaved to the interest base system. However, Islam is firmly opposed to begging in all of its forms. With very few exceptions.
The Prophet SAW Selim was quoted by aware as saying by the one in whose hand is my soul, it is better for one of you to take a rope and carry a bundle of wood on his back and sell it rather than to come empty handed begging from people who may or may not give him anything.
As a Muslim we should never ask well from others,
whether individuals or institutions just to increase our wealth. Brava Salam warned us whoever begs from the people in order to accumulate wealth. It is as if he is asking
For a burning coal, so let him ask for a little or a lot of it.
there will be exceptional cases where people are forced to beg in order to survive, and not merely to increase their wealth. Kobe saw it been mohatta coated the process elements saying that begging is only allowed in one of three cases.
One, a man who takes on someone else's responsibility is allowed to bank until he raises the necessary amount.
He's helping out somebody else who cannot fulfill their debts, etc. He's taking them on and he can seek help from where whatever avenues you can to fulfill the debts that are on that individual.
is one who is poverty stricken.
Such a person is allowed to beg until he or she reestablishes themselves on condition that three intelligent people from their tribe witness to their poverty.
And the third
had a calamity, he lost all of his wealth in a calamity in a natural,
earthquake, Typhoon whatever.
So such an individual left with nothing may beg until he has gotten back on his feet.
In contrast, the process offered a guaranteed place in Jannah. For anyone who would not ask anyone, for anything.
who would strive as much as humanly possible to be runny, self sufficient, like Allah, obviously, relatively speaking,
that as a law has no need.
The individual should strive not to have needs, that he really does not have, of course, he will have some needs.
Allah is totally without need. But human beings can reduce the needs for what are seen as needs and reduce it significantly simplify their lives. A mozarella Safari was promised paradise for his commitment to placing complete trust in Allah and referring to refraining from asking anyone for anything.
He said, One day, Allah's Messenger called me and said, Will you make a pledge for Paradise? I said, Yes, I replied, Yes.
I stretched out my hand.
And he took it placing a condition on me saying that you will not ask anyone anything. I said yes.
And he added, even if your whip falls, you must dismount and pick it up yourself.
All the way down to that level.
Likewise, the companion so bam,
equal to the process LMS announcing on another occasion, who will guarantee for me that he will not ask people ask for anything, and I will guarantee for him paradise, so by and replied I will. After that he was known not to have asked anyone for anything.
By getting out of the habit of asking people to do things for us, half of the struggle for Raina, to have that independence that richness is already one.
And if the habit of asking people and depending on them is replaced by depending on Allah, our faith will no doubt be taken to a much higher level only experience by selecting a few.
for us to
this name is to be grateful to
great stress on gratitude is made in Islamic teachings.
We've mentioned it so many times, with so many of the different names.
It is by way of gratitude to Allah and other human beings that the love of Allah can truly develop.
From the daily prayer on Fatiha, which begins with the phrase, All Praise and thanks are due to Allah Al Hamdulillah.
An extends to the importance of thanking other human beings, about which Abu Huraira quoted the process elements saying, playas, Kuru law, men lyase, Kuru NAS, whoever doesn't thank people doesn't thank Allah.
According to Abu Huraira, the prophets I send them all to advise us to develop an attitude of gratitude by struggling against its opposite jealousy.
He said, What is the rule Illa man as Philomene comb, well, attendu Illa man who have our cocoa look to those below you and don't look to those above you, as it helps you to appreciate a loss favors on you. People are plagued with the disease of keeping up with those around them.
Just to be calling America Keeping Up with the Joneses.
They are driven by the desire to have whatever their neighbors, friends, relatives, etc. However, as it is said in the West, the grass is always greener on the other side.
In Africa, people say the white man's ice is always cold.
That is that jealous I the only way to escape this addiction
to have what everybody else everybody else has, is to completely stop looking at those more fortunate than ourselves.
There are so many more people who are less fortunate if we were only to stop and take the time to look around, instead of staring at those more fortunate
if we would only look at those who are less fortunate, gratitude with growing our hearts.
And we all would be motivated to be charitable, and thereby earn even greater rewards with whatever law has granted us.
And among the characteristics is to be contented, as we mentioned before, live with the green light of Meindl.
The other closely related disease is to never be satisfied with what ever we get.
The more we have, the more we want. So we can never become contented. This addiction is fueled by always looking at what others have
disconnected is the other half of the disease. The reality is that no matter how much we accumulate, there will always be others who have more than us.
The companion if not boss equal to the problem solve some of them as addressing this phenomenon saying Locanda Livni Adam why the N men Marlon letaba Fan Ethan,
give a son of Adam Adam had two valleys of money,
he would wish for a third. For nothing can fill the belly of the son of Adam except the dirt of his grave.
But Allah forgives whoever repents, we can always get out of it. This addiction can only be overcome by deep reflection on Allah's many countless blessings in our own lives. In the contemplation of his innumerable special gifts, no matter how poor, or how destitute a situation we may find ourselves in. There are always others who are worse off than us.
On the other hand, whenever anything beneficial comes our way. For example, a promotion at work, financial gain, or anything of benefit to us. We should make sure that the first thing we do is to fall down on our faces. And thank Allah honey,
asking him to aid us
to use whatever we have been blessed with wisely in order to make it a source of increased Baraka blessings for us in our lives.
And of course there is
so Judah sugar
so Judah sugar
which has been forgotten in amongst much of the OMA.
It was the regular practice of the processor to perform So Judas Shakur, whenever good news are gifts came to him.
The current global abandonment of this divinely guided practice derives us of its innumerable medical, spiritual and psychological benefits. Its regular practice is the great eraser of depression, sadness and sorrow.
When doing it, there is no need for wudu
facing the temblor covering our bodies beyond the normal house dress. Even women in their menses or postnatal beading can do it. It is a sunnah moussaka
regular Sunday which surprised us and them regularly practice like the two voluntary prayers which precede
our Fajr prayers, obligatory Fajr prayers. Broadside seven never left them even when he was traveling, when he dropped the sunup prayers before and after all of the other four daily prayers.
The two that come along with Fajr he always continued to do.
Unfortunately, Muslims globally are mostly unaware of sudo
and don't practice it at all.
When the opposite should be the case.
Especially considering that they become very elated and happy when they see the likes of Premier League, Egyptian footballer Muhammad Salah and others making prostration whenever they Scola Gore goal. Instead, they miss out on it's amazing soothing effects. So do the sugar provides.
For the suffering and depression sadness and sorrow which people may experience it provides for them.
A calmness brings them back down from whatever
that they may have found themselves in.
Furthermore, the more we are conscious of Allah's unique gifts in all aspects of our lives, the more we're able to increase our love for Him. And the more we're able to recognize how blessed we are, and find contentment and inner peace. When anyone gives us gifts, even if we don't need them or want them, we feel good about them and appreciate their efforts and thought, why don't we feel the same way and even more about Allah, mainly because we indirectly deny His favors and gifts and take them totally for granted. So we do need to seriously reflect on the many blessings in our lives, to grow in faith.
And that is where sujood a sugar can play a huge part in helping us
get Allah back into our lives.
We should also be a source of refuge. We may apply the divine name of a need to ourselves by doing on a human scale what Allah Almighty does on a universal scale. Allah Allah Ghani provides sanctuary to and support for all of his creatures, we in turn can provide for the world. Similarly, everywhere we turn in the world there are refugees suffering, whether in Myanmar Burma, from the genocide, Syria in Libya from bombing by Bashir assets, troops and the Russians,
Jordanian Syrians fleeing from Syria,
Ethiopia from war, South Sudan from war, the DRC from volcanic eruptions in Goma
in jails in Libya, trying to cross the Mediterranean, Mexico trying to get into the US. The country we just taken in the most refugees globally, is Turkey.
There are almost 4 million refugees currently living in Turkey.
Turkey currently hosts some 3.6 million registered Syrian refugees, along with close to 320,000 persons of concern from other nationalities
Over 13 million Syrians received aid from the Turkish aid agency, if offered AFAD.
Turkey has spent more than any other country in the world on Syrian refugee aid. In terms of the other top countries hosting refugees, Turkey was followed by Pakistan 1.5 million Afghans, Libya, Lebanon 1.51 point 1.15 Palestinians million Palestinians, Islamic Republic of Iran
982,000 Afghans, Bangladesh adlg and 80,000 Rohingya refugees. Ethiopia hosted 860,000 refugees, by the end of 2024 50,000 of them are from South Sudan and Uganda, 70,000 from Somalia, and another 50,000 from Eritrea and Jordan
as Muslims, we are obliged to help these refugees especially considering that the majority of them are Muslims. We should follow the example of an Joshy the Christian ruler of Ethiopia who helped oppress Muslim convert refugees from Mecca 1400 years ago. The Prophet SAW Salem continuously called on his followers and OMA to come to the aid of those in need of help, saying time and time again in a variety of different ways help others whenever you can.
For example, He connected providing support to weaker members of society with protecting society as a whole. It was reported to have said and Moltmann little movement California, you should do ba boo bah bah.
And then he crossed his fingers
with each other. The believers are like one structure, each supporting the other.
The province has LM compared the Muslim community to a building, which will crumble if weaknesses in its structure are not fixed. Therefore helping the needy most members of the community is ultimately helping ourselves as a community of believers. Without that spirit of mutual help. When our turn comes for seeking and getting help, it may not be available.
The Prophet SAW Selim further clarified that even the sincerity of our Muslims faith in God is in question. If he or she does not strive to help their unfortunate brother or sister, they stated or restated the golden rule of doing unto others as you'd have them do unto you. In terms of faith and brothers saying, live Minoo I had had a hip belly, it might have been enough. See, none of you has truly believed that the loves for his brother, what he loves, for himself.
So just as we would expect help when we are in need,
we have to be ready to help others who are currently in need. None of us is guaranteed a comfortable home where all our needs are met,
the way they may be today.
How many of today's Muslim refugees were relatively comfortable prior to the disasters, what happened in their lives, their cities and the countries
giving in charity.
These are among the ways of imitating Aulani all of the many prophetic instructions which enjoy giving in charity come under the general heading of providing help and support to others in need. as instruments of Allah, Allah honey, we are his instruments. When we do it we're doing he is the one actually providing and we are the instruments to tickets to the people in need.
The repository of wealth and provider of wealth
is a law.
In reality, all wealth comes from Him alone.
being charitable, is among the most basic moral characteristics of Islam, which is why the religious obligation of Zakah often call it obligatory charity was instituted in the life of every Muslim with surplus wealth and able to share some of it with others. It was awesome. Quoted allies saying
and shipped. Yep, Naadam 1/5 Alec, spend in times
oh son of Adam span and charge me and I will spend on you.
This is a direct promise and guaranteed offer of additional finance for those who spend charity charitably. For Allah sake, forever giving has to be in moderation so as not to put one's own family in distress. But the basic concept of sacrificing some of one's wealth for the sake of a lie, is a fundamental part of Islam. And one of its five principles.
We should believe that it is the right of the needy, which we are fulfilling and not looked at charitable acts as a favor we're doing to the board. Allah has already labeled Xhaka that way poplin Desai, anyone in my room, right of the beggar and the poor sadhaka is only the vide the voluntary version of the same right.
The promise is also encouraged, helping the needy from the perspective of relieving them of distress.
And distress is something we all face in our lives. Distress can easily lead to depression and depression is the leading cause of suicide.
So distress is easily understood, and it is something we all wish to avoid in life.
Concept consequently, in the past Prophet saw some of them said,
Whoever relieves a Muslim of some worldly distress, Allah will relieve him of some of the stresses of the day of resurrection, manifest and movement. Quarter button Min COVID Dunya nafas Allahu Anhu core baton Min kooralbyn Kuraby Omen Tia
we should give from what we love to receive.
reaching the higher levels of charity ability of being charitable.
When we give in charity, there are two important instructions to keep in mind.
Only give from halaal wealth. That's number one.
From what this halaal either we gained it or it was our own, belonging inherited or whatever. And second, don't give from what you would dislike to receive from for yourself.
The Quranic commentator even kafir quoted him nabasa saying Allah commanded them to spend from the purest finest and best types of their money and prohibited spending from the evening dishonest money. Because
in the law table, lie up to Balou Illa Paiva. Allah is pure and good and only accepts that which is pure.
Given from what we love, is a last concept to a large degree in our modern day individualistic society. How many times do we give away all the even damaged garments to charity?
Allah Allah He knows us best. So let us reflect on this crucial statement. Lay an aloe vera had done simple math to him.
You will never attain righteousness until you spend from what you love to Allah Miranda verse 92. If we give away something we love for ourselves, we will immediately indirectly feel the good effect on our hearts.

That's incredible claims.
The third principle to have hope, where there is promise.
The Divine Name of money is applied according to the third principle of women backed off by developing hope based on the divine promises of Allah.
His promises of what promises of support contain the divine name of money that he is going to provide.
It contains by implication the promise of divine help and refuge for those deserving it and even for those not deserving.
The basic promise is that if we help a lot by upholding and defending his religion, and those following it, he will help us the Iron Lady domino in terms of the law, the uncynical.
You submit up to them, or you believe to Muhammad verse seven. If you help Allah he will help you and make you stand firm.
We cannot literally help Allah
As he does not have any need of help,
help from creation or any aspect of creation.
Because for them to help Allah is to establish a need which Allah has a weakness that they're filling that gap.
It is His creatures who are in constant need of help. Live for human beings is synonymous with struggling our chip. From our entrance into this world to learning how to rollover, how to crawl, how to stand up, how to walk and how to run. We struggled on through all the stages of life, being helped by others all along the way. Laqad Hala phenylene Sanofi Cabot I've certainly created humankind in hardship through a ballad verse four. For us this life will be a struggle until we meet Allah to be recompense fully for all we have earned in this life. But throughout the various stages of life, we are constantly in need of help from others around us. Consequently, we should appreciate
all the help we receive that every step of the way,
and be there for others Likewise, in their times of need.
We should also ask Allah Ronnie
to pray fervently to him for our needs repeatedly.
The meaning of the Divine a Malvani can also be applied to our prayers by stressing to Allah, our need for his mercies and bounties. For example, we may directly use the beautiful name
using this application of Prophet Musa while realizing our own need of Albani Rob be in nee Lima and Zelda La Jolla min hide in faqeer Oh my Lord, surely I'm in need of whatever good you bestow on me.
We should note
that insistence, in supplication is loved by Allah.
You know, in this life, it's not like people insist that constantly reminding and repeating and we don't like it makes people uncomfortable generally, but for Allah No.
It's pleasing to Him. It is not considered as rejecting destiny.
It is perseverance
to achieve a goal
using legitimate Islamic means.
And the results are within the framework, the divine framework of Allah's destiny.
Furthermore, it is an expression of sincere dependence on worship, or Buddha, which is the highest that we can reach. Our quoted the Prophet SAW Selim as saying every one of you will be granted a prayer, an answer to his supplication, provided he is not hasty by saying I prayed but it was not granted an answer.
The most famous commentator on say, Al Bukhari and half of the Mahajan said,
this hadith contains one of the etiquettes of supplication, which is to request repeatedly
without losing hope, and despairing that the prayer will not be answered.
The fourth and last principle of given Batam
have fear where there is a warning
the name if there's a warning contained in it, we should have here.
So we apply it. As a consequence.
The Divine Name of money does not directly contain any warning, as it describes the laws perfect state of complete independence and meaninglessness,
of totally being without any need. The Warning lie lies in the implied evil consequence of not trying our utmost to help others when we should.
So it's not in the words themselves, but in the counter understanding of those words.
When Allah said diu Alladhina amanu

help a law
by relieving our Muslim brothers and sisters from the trials of this life
as we mentioned earlier, about one who relieves a Muslim of worldly distress allowing relief for him or some of the stresses of the day or judgment.
So this warning is particularly fearful, as
that is the time when we will need relief from stress and distress and have distressed the most. Therefore, here and now we need to take every opportunity which comes our way to help those around us without expecting or needing thanks from them. As Allah taught us in the Quran, to say, to those whom we help
in a minute mo calmly watch Eli Landry, Doman comm Jessa and Willa chakra, we are feeding you for the sake of Allah alone.
We do not seek any recompense, nor thanks from you. So I'm in San, verse nine. We do so with the assurance that Allah
sees our acts, accepts them,
and accepts our efforts to remove the stress from people, other people in this life.
And he will in turn benefit us the result of it. In our hearts, we should thank those who we help for giving us the opportunity to help them as we all will need all the help we can get on the Day of Judgment. Similarly, the last prophet saw Salem warned about the evil effects of not alleviating the burdens of the destitute, he said, Well my Yes sir. Allah more acid in Yes, sir Allahu alayhi for dunya and akhira. Wherever eases the burden of a destitute, destitute person, Allah will ease his burdens in this world and the next

it will aid a servant of his so long as the servant is his brother.
Robinson salaam warned that failing to assist others in this life will lead to his not easing of our burdens in both the next life as well as this life.
So if we want to erase and find people's burdens from ourselves, we want to remove them from ourselves.
we should seek out others who are having trials and difficulties and have them and Allah will help us. This is the Promise of Allah.
we will close out our session making our final dua with the name of honey.
Oh Allah, I love honey, we know that you need no one. And we all need you.
Make us recognize our poverty in front of you and always make us thankful for the wealth you bestowed on us and guide us to use it for your sake.
Yeah, honey, adorn us with contentment with your decree and make us among those who give in charity. From what they truly love.
Yeah, Allah motivators to turn only to you for the fulfillment of our needs. And to teach others to do likewise.
Yeah, Allah, we realize that we need you at all times. So aid us to be of those who turn only to him.
Only to you Allah for our needs and adorn us with a strong desire to please you alone.
You have any?
I mean, I mean, I mean,
that will come to a close for session. 60 be

Mata Mahi about a cattle
coming up to our q&a
Hopefully we just have a few
are these are added,
as the question
Christian missionary asks that if Islam teaches singularity of God, then why are there many verses of the Holy Quran are poor words are used for God
is a common question raised,
in the Bible also the plural. And this in Old English is called the royal we,
that people in our party would not refer to themselves as a singularity, but as a plurality
to to give themselves more status, etc. So
we and as was used
and we do it in a different way, where we greet each other Salam Alaikum technically speaking, we should say salam alayka to males, salam, ala ki females,
where we say so I like Kume even though we're only talking to one person, that's Peace be on all of you.
Why? Because that making the person you're greeting a plural is giving them that status for the Royal week.
So no, use of weed doesn't mean
God the Father, God, the Son and God the Holy Spirit, as Christians would have us believe.
