Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala bien Karim heavy automatise lien rubbish sloppy somebody were silly me why not? Let me send you a couple of brothers and sisters set y equal to y your backyard
today in southern Montana with the fourth Joseph look
but I wanted to cover a few as from yesterday
when I mentioned the importance of discussing about charity but then Allah subhana wa Tada says in verse number 279 of slaughter Bucha Allah talks about Eva interest
just get to it
verse number 279, Allah subhanho wa Taala says we'll be learning a shade on
Sorry 278 Yeah, I knew
who I was. But the me not leave.
Meanie. So he learned to
be hunting, you know, he was assuming he was Sunni. While you went on to also NYT Camilla anymore now Allah to
Allah subhana wa Tada says that you know, Alberto, oh, you believe
fear of law. It took a law whether or not the
most dependable way to Allah is telling us to have that duck oil but not only tequila, sometimes we watered down tequila and we say oh, it's not fear. It's not fear don't talk What does price of fearing what to add? It also comprises of hope, hoping that Allah Subhana Allah will give us rewards for our good deeds and actions.
And so here on Muslim handling data says it duck with law or the rule book a yummy Natalie that fear of loss of Hannah Watts and be mindful of right.
And give up outstanding interest if you truly are believers.
The inlanta value then will be haven't been mean on Mahira Suey and if you do not give up riba if you do not give up interest, then be aware of a war with Allah and His messenger.
Winterbottom fellow Congo, also unwanted income, but if you repent, you may retain your principal.
Let's remove on our top number one, Allah subhanaw taala says do not wrong and you will not be wronged. And here we see the importance of staying away from interest. Allah subhanho wa jal, I mentioned that Riba and indulging in it, whether you're taking it or paying it, so whether you're receiving interest, or paying interest, or keeping interest as the profits on longer it goes on them tells us in the Hadith, anyone who's receiving or taking or calculating interest or even writing up the contracts to do with it with interest rate to deal with interest, then they are taking part in it, they are just like the person who is you know, paying or receiving interest.
And Allah subhanaw taala points, the person who does that, it's as though they're weighed against the loss of henwood Allah and His messenger. Now, we might think, to ourselves, why does a loss of health such a harsh punishment or a harsh statement
against those who deal with interest? Now, if someone is saying, Be careful of the plug in, put your finger in the blood, you know, the socket on the wall, don't put your finger in the socket. Right? And a child says, okay, whatnot. Now I'm interested to put my finger in the socket, right? If they don't know how dangerous it is, they're going to go in they're going to do it.
But if they're told if you put your in the socket you might pay and don't you remember Uncle so and so one day, he was doing something and he touched the wire the electricity and he got shocked and he died. Right? Immediately. The child is like, oh, no, I'm never going to put my finger in that socket. Right. I'm gonna stay away from it because if I do that,
Something bad is gonna happen to be like really bad. And so, so how do we data showing us here, be careful of this do not get involved with interest. It's as though you're waging war against or with a loss of Hanwha data as well as the messenger of a loss on a law, Haida usnm.
Why? Because interest destroys society,
it contributes towards making the rich richer, and the poor poorer. Now, we might look at it and say, but it doesn't really affect us, right? The average person might say, Yeah, I can see how it makes the rich richer and the poor, poor, but you know, I need to still purchase a house or I still need to purchase a car, I need to do this, and I need to do that. So it's just a small amount, it's not a big deal, right? It's a few dollars here, a few dollars there $100, every now and then no big deal. But think of the amount of people that are doing this. And then think of the amount of people that are making that wealth from all the people that are paying it. And you really start to see
instability within society. Like even through COVID, we started to see how they were getting really rich, and how are the average people were losing their businesses losing their jobs, no longer employed, and how about here in Canada, we had certain, you know, social services that helped us out but in other countries, either you had a job or not, either you worked or you lost your job. And if you lost your job, you lose your income. You don't even have your your you know, there's there's no welfare system. In some countries, there's no unemployment in some countries, and especially here in Canada, if your business is owner, so kind of like, you know, you wrote a lot, especially on your
initial investments and your capital investments. And so Allah subhanho data is showing us here that this is something that destroys society.
And we have a responsibility to look after. And if we don't care about looking after society, then we've completely disobeyed ALLAH SubhanA, Allah and His messenger. Because the prophets, Allah, I think it was some of them was sent to one of our sin rom attendees.
He was sent as a mercy to humanity,
to look after human beings to offset this stability of
a city or a town tree, or, you know, humanities, society at large. And so a Muslim hand without warning here to us. And I just wanted to point that out yesterday, because it was very important for us to the topic of interest, we don't talk about it enough, right, we don't talk about it enough, a lot of the time, we just brush it off, like, you know, we learned this is the conventional banking system that we have, we don't have any other option for us, let's just do what we need to do to survive like everyone else is doing.
My brothers and sisters, we need to know means live within our means. If you earn $10,000 In the year, survive off $10,000 In a year, obviously, I'm using that figure as an example. Right, I don't want to go to other figures, just using an example of $10,000. If someone earns that x amounts as their yearly earnings, then live within that means don't go and purchase things that are above and beyond. Don't go in burden yourself with loans and with debt and incurring interest. Because what happens is you end up working 20 years to pay off a house you could have paid off in 10 years.
Had we worked and saved for it. Now I know people will argue with what I've just said and said, You know what, in 10 years, the same house that you would have bought for 100,000 is now going to be 1.2 or 1.5 million, fine. But there are ways around it. Okay. And at the end of the day, often we don't really need a house as an investment. There are other types of investments that we can have and make.
In addition to that, a lot of the time when people do purchase a house.
Right? When people do purchase a house, they purchase it thinking I'm purchasing this house for my children.
When my children get married, they're gonna live in this house. Most of the time when our children get married, they don't live in our house or in their parents house, they move out, right like we got married, we moved out of our houses every I think everyone here that is married, moved out of their parents house, right at some point in time. So that intention that parents have that I'm going to have a house and own the house, back home it makes sense. In many other countries it makes total sense because the houses are designed, right you can have and one family has one portion of the house another family you know like multiple different multiple sons. They each have different
sections of that
house works. And then in the middle of the house, there's a courtyard. Or like this part of the houses for the brother, this province for the sister that's for the eldest brother. There's sections of the houses, right? So it works, or the houses are built very close to each other. But in Canada, it doesn't do the work. Like how they will get married, bring to the house, have a child, two children's are all living out of one bedroom.
And the washroom is not even in the bedroom and there's no living room and there's no space for anything. It's just a bedroom. So it just doesn't work. It just doesn't work, right, unless we move our countryside. But most of us are not doing that we're all looking within, you know, the cities and the towns that exist. Alright, we'll skip to the fourth just in sha Allah Metatron
will look at verse number 96 Verse number 96 of
Allah subhanho which Allah says,
you know, what are they eating all the Idina levy but get the hobo kill me learn me in fee I
Ebola he women
when he iden Nursey height joined by a team and he stopped he said he
caffeine caffiene Love you 90 Love me in habitat it touches upon this house in a way innovating. The very first house will be either nuts that was put in place or is for humanity.
Makka used to be called and another name from aka is Baka. Just like when we see Medina Medina used to be called
yesterday. He used to be called yesterday and to
by Eva and Paul and Madina, Munawwara Medina to Rasul any names for its right is Manoa has a number of names. So Maccha used to be called Bucha and still till today is called Baca like if you if you're living in Saudi Aramco, you know, if you're living in Saudi, you say anyone in Boynton Bucha they know you're going to knock them, right. It's not like oh, there's some other city somewhere else they know that you're going to Okay, so Allah Subhan we know what are they the very first place of worship that was established for humanity? Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't say for the believers, he says, the nuts for humanity, Lady be backcap and that is the house or the place of worship that
was established in Makkah, a sanctuary and a guide for all human beings, all people, Allah Subhana Allah says will add a need.
And so MK in itself the carrabba that was established there a fee a beginner to Mocambo Ibrahim, in its are clear signs and a standing place of Ibrahim it is set up the Macomb Ibrahim is the stone that Yvonne here it is Sam stone stood on when they were building the caravan. Him and who who was building it, see who's paying attention to the are paying attention to the clock.
is very, very good. I'm the love. So Ibrahim alayhis salam was building the caravan with his name. I like his setup. And when he was laying the bricks and they're not the bricks that are there today, okay, there were stones at that time. Now they're these cement blocks. When he was laying them down, placing them in a position the wall started to get higher, and eventually he couldn't reach it. So he needs a ladder, right he needed a ladder, but he didn't have a ladder, Allah Subhana Allah told Ibrahim alayhis salam to stand on that stone. And when he stood on the stone, Allah lifted the stone as like an elevator to raise him up so that he could place the stones higher and higher. And then it
would come down with the boogeyman standing on it, and he would take another stone from the smash it up and it would go back up and he would place it up. And then he would come down and he would take another one and go and place it up. And the stone there can still be seen when you go to Mecca, and you see them a comment Ibrahim, as you're making the walk around the Kaaba,
done uncle is working.
You turn it off and it stays on hamdulillah
so when you're making a offer on the Kaaba and you're done your seven circuits, you now need to pray to it. Okay.
Behind my comment, Ibrahim McCollum, Ibrahim usually in the pictures, they show you this golden dome, right, which is in front of the door of the Kaaba. But if you go and you look into it, in fact if you know, you know, what do you make right with these night? So just yesterday, I believe it was yesterday, he was there and MCCA doing ARCA. And he went right up to it. So if you go to his Instagram account and look at it, you could see he made a video looking inside of the footprint of Ibrahim it set up in the stock. Right? So it is a beautiful thing he posted and then He zoomed out and you can see the Cabo is really nice. It's a very short, you know, like 32nd video clip but very,
very nice to see and makes us feel like we're back there again. And so Ibrahim alayhis salam was there and helped to his son helped him to build the kava and also kind of with Allah mentions the Macomb in it's our clear science and standing places Ibrahim that Macomb is there and preserve till today. Right I'll call Ibrahim woman definitely will Canada Amina and whoever enters that place the sanctuary of the Galaga which is known as what what is protecting the GABA?
What is built around the calendar
you all know this. I'm just confusing you by asking the question.
Yes, but there's something that is physically built around it to protect the data
what is built around it when you look at a picture of the cowbell What do you see?
Okay, you see them up off what else?
When what is the GABA called Canada? If I say must do that, how long what is most of the home
the masjid that is surrounding what the GABA must do the house is built into Canada.
Right? That Masjid is built around it protecting the governor and the mythos the office of the greens the white marble that surrounds the Canada is known as the mythos right the place that you make a wealth that is part of the Masjid.
So, Allah Subhana Allah is telling us anyone who enters there must do that Haram is safe.
But that also extends further out.
The sanctuary of the previous verse.
Allah subhana, Allah says in elevating will the IDT lady de Baca so Maka, the holy sanctuary, which is a specific limited area that the prophets Allah
mentions, that in itself is the protected holy sanctuary, where anyone who enters is safe, but must do that haram specifically is a safe area. And you'll notice some how a lot I went for Anwar, in December, we have a friend
who lives in Makkah, and I said How was MCCA during COVID? And he said, all the streets this, we were outside walking on the streets, right and opposite the clock towers. He says all of these streets were lined up with tanks, military tanks, all industries, and the military was standing all around it. I was like, What was the purpose for that? Like, why did they do that? He says we could be safe when the Muslims are there.
But because it was closed force we know as our brother mentioned, Allah's protecting it, but we have a responsibility to also protect it just like our body. We are alive, Allah is making it function, but we still need to look after our body we need to feed it to take care of it and do exercise and do things to stay healthy. Right. So the same way. He says there were tanks and military surrounding musters and how long completely all around like layers of tax all on the streets. And they were protecting the harbor because there were no Muslim side.
the military was protecting it. Have a while right? So anyone who's in it is safe and protected. No one can harm you inside the cabin. Because it's how long not inside the cabin inside must have been how long? It is how long to harm someone in that area.
is a huge sin. It might be a sin to hit someone here or to hit someone anywhere else in built in our Canada. But it is a huge, huge sin to hit or or do something towards someone else inside mustard and how
Why wasn't handling data shows us even in fact, from Africa, the people that went into the house of most of the people that were there around the caravan were safe and protected. Right? And at the end of time as well, when the End of Times arrive, people who are in Makkah and people who are in Medina, will be safe and protected, and the hypocrites that live within and I know it's weird because we think there are souls. Why would a hypocrite continue living there, they will flee they will run from those lands. And it's Allah's way of purifying the people that live there and getting out those who are hypocrites there that actually pretend to believe in Allah subhanho wa taala.
So now, but one thing I really wanted to point out is that it says in verse number 97, why the law had a nasty drill Beatty Minister bar is a biller and whoever enters it is safe pilgrimage to this house ation by Allah upon whoever is able to among the people.
who here has gone for Hajj, raise your head
okay, for five, of course, maybe more more than one time right? Have the shots of vodka
it's compulsory for us to go for Hajj. Prophet sallallahu wasallam said Booney al Islam or either comes Islam is built upon five, Shadow Allah either in the law and the Muhammad was what you call Miss sada where he that is where hygiene bait was only Ramadan. Islam is built upon five pillars. belief in Allah Subhana Allah and the prophets of love it is that it is a last and final messenger.
And establishing prayer
pains that gap, which is another topic for us to discuss throughout this month of Ramadan as well. going for Hajj Minister Baha, he said Eva, and fasting throughout the month of Ramadan. going for Hajj is an important pillar of Islam that many hasn't many of us don't plan enough for. Right? And so how long you think to yourself? Do you can you afford to have right now?
How will you?
At what if I told you that in sha Allah, if you plan to really well, by the time you were 20 years old, you should be able to go for Hajj.
Wouldn't it right, it would be really nice is true. If you simply worked a part time job, part time and you plan you say look, I'm not planning on going for hikes this year. But in the next two to maybe three years. And you work part time. The average hedge package costs Okay, let's just say nine to 10,000. I don't really know how much they're going to cost this year. But let's just say on average, let's just put a fixed amount 10,000. So you now need to work and save $5,000 each year. Is that something that's doable?
Of course it is. Right $5,000 means you need to earn $500 a month
for the next two years. And that's it
shall log data you get your $10,000 now earning $500 A month how many hours do you need to work during five? Let's say minimum wage. You're an accountant, you have a minimum wage.
You don't know what minimum wage is a lot of accountants they're like we don't know how we get paid too much.
Minimum wage, I think that was around 16 or $18. Right? 1415 Okay, in Ontario $15. Okay, $15.30 hours, so you need to work one week per month, one full time week, per month
in order to earn the $5,000 in the year.
Now, if we break that down even further, that's what you say. 30 hours.
Okay, 32 hours divided by four. So you need to work one day a week. One day, a week, every Sunday, for example. One day a week, a full shift eight hours
and you'll be able to earn enough money to go for Hajj in two years. In two years. That's it.
And when we break it down that much, it seems it seems simple, right? Like super easy. I need to work one day a week at
minimum wage for two years, I'll be able to afford 100 package. That's amazing. We don't think of it that way. But the reality is, that's how it is. I never thought I would be able to take my wife for Hajj. Right. And then a brother told me, he was like, look, take your wife for Hajj, we're going to look after it this year, and you pay monthly. And I was like, I don't know, what if I'm not able to pay monthly after that? He said, No, don't worry, you just pay monthly, right? Break it down and pay monthly. That's how a lot I paid it off much quicker than I thought.
We never think that we'll be able to do it. And I'm saying this. I know, half of you have done Hutch. But majority of the people that are watching right now, probably haven't. And so kind of love for you sitting at home, you think to yourself, how much are you spending in rent a month?
And how much do we really need to spend? How much are we spending and I remembered for the use of was doing RTF a few years ago and I was I was saying I was breaking down something and he wrote down he says
if he cuts out certain things like one or two channels from his satellite subscription every month and cuts out, you know, voice messaging or something like that on his phone or you know, a few things. He's like I can easily save $1,000 a month but cutting things out. So people that are working that are earning that are not students right? Cutting out certain expenses. I think of it the amount of times that we drive somewhere or the amount of times and this is like the typical mistake the amount of money we spend it to Mormons I think Muslims fun Tim Hortons like we literally fund all of their restaurants
we fund all of the restaurants especially during the month of Ramadan
I think of the amount of money that people spend every month we're going to use you as an example now. How many times a day outside of Ramadan do you go to Tim Hortons?
Okay, two or three times each time you buy one coffee or more
morning coffee and a bagel?
Coffee? Coffee. So
$2 for one coffee roughly 189 246 bagel what three $4
So about $10 a day you spend at Tim Hortons $10 a day, times 365 days $3,650 You give to Tim Hortons every year.
In two years, that's how much
if you start buying the instant coffee,
right? Which cost like $4 per jar and you'll see for a month with it and you start putting that in your water and you have your coffee that way. You can go for hydro quick.
Like we don't think of it and Allah Subhana Allah is telling us when he left here at NSCI Jun Beatty Minister of ICT at Sevilla and what is the reward of Hajj? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us whoever goes for Hajj it performs their Hutch perfectly as if the way the prophets Allah Allah was set up did and fulfills everything that they're supposed to. They return home can young men when a dental home
like them award is that their CD completely completely wiped away, as though it's the day that their mother gave birth to them? Cure clean?
How many of us are ready to go for Hajj? And I'm not. I know, like I said I'm talking to most of you who have done Hajj is for the people that are watching the people that say oh, we can't afford it. We don't have a babysitter. We don't have this. We don't have that there are ways to figure it out.
If hedge was truly important to us, we would prioritize hedge over the satellite TV. We would prioritize hedge over the coffee and the doughnuts we would prioritize hedge over everything else because it's a pillar of our deen. Yet we leave it we need it. We say I can't afford it. I can't afford it. And we criticize the hedge groups and we say Oh, it's too expensive. Is too. But then when we get you know, this is interesting. And this is me going on a rant we criticize and we say Oh, it's too expensive. And then we go into the cheapest group. And then we get there. Where's the bus? Well, if you want the bus, you should have paid more. We say where's the lunch buffet? You
wanted lunch buffet? You should have paid more. Where's this? Where's that? And then we say so kind of paid so much, but I still didn't get anything. Right? But you look like you're raising your hand
and that's the other thing I find really interesting. When people go for Hajj phenomenon. We complain about the cost of going but when we get there so
Many brothers and sisters they're like Jeff, can you show us where the jewelry shops should do shows?
I thought I thought you guys are complaining the packages too expensive and they go to the jeWelry shop and no joke no joke 4567 $8 of jewelry they buy in one shot in one go.
And remember buying gold with your credit card is not permissible
unless you have the money and you're paying it off right away. So you have to buy it debit or cash. Right systemically we can't buy gold and silver without having an equal exchange cannot just pay it off over time has to be an equal exchange.
yah strung along
and it's because they know that hadith of the Prophet saw it was summed up that when you purchase gold and silver, it has to be yet then be at an equal transaction. This is $100 of golden buying. Here's $100 Right? You can't say scan my card and I'll pay it over the next year. Nope, we can't do that. Right.
Along anatomy easy for us to go for Hajj and to be able to save for Hajj and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, a woman can fall in love of any United either of us Penwith, Allah says and whoever disbelieves that surely Allah is not in need of any of his creation. Allah doesn't need us. So don't think that you know, although wants to steal for hedge, but it doesn't really matter. No, go for hedge and you will see how much it changes your life. May Allah subhanaw taala bring all of us back to Mecca, Medina, many, many more times. We move on to chatbox at a diverse number 123
Verse number 123, sort of non Abbas Academy data is now talking about the Battle of better what are Cardinal sakumo either during whatever to add factor, or
judge guru one must Can we 10 it says indeed about made you victorious. But when you were sued, here's the outnumbered here the outnumbered so be mindful of law, perhaps you will be grateful. What were the numbers? The Battle of other the Muslims were 313 minutes
313 Men two

In prison. They have two tanks. You know 210 is gonna be easy, right? That's exactly what people are thinking in their minds. 300 men,
two horses, camels and the machine then we're around 900 to 1000 of the machine corn. fully armored. And they had everything and more.
Yeah, Tommaso can with Anna showed the Muslims

remember when you said to the believers, it
not enough doubt reinforcement 3000 tools
permit dataset angels that the angels were present. He started to see that the most frequent dropping one after the other they were just falling and falling and falling so quickly. He knew that angels of the loss of habitat were helping lead the battlegrounds and this goes to show us
that strength is not a numbers.
Strength is not a numbers.
Is it our belief is patent attack, rather was saying about the counter looking protected
it's protected by a loss. If I firmly believe believe that what is protecting something or someone or looking after me looking after my house look at me, then you never need to worry. We'll look after your family. But the problem is is that we don't even let that happened. We need to be there to help our family we need to look after we do something and step in to Irby, we step in let ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada let the natural course of life take place. And we ruin things sometimes. Be patient, be patient, be patient, Allah subhana wa Tada tells us that he is with those who are patient.
But we are not patient enough. We become too anxious to do something about it.
In addition to this, my brothers and sisters, we see in verse number. So these these verses talking about the Battle of Baba, verse number 137, onwards to the Battle of Gods and if you look at verse number 130, just at the bottom of the page, unless it says yeah, I know
that coolibah Avanos
what Docomo and
really what aqui en la Rasul Allah,
Allah subhana wa Tada says all believers do not assume interest. Once again, Allah telling us led to a cooler rebound of the Alpha mobile Alpha do not consume interest multiple playing it many times over. Because what we see happening is just that, right, people need to buy something, they buy it on interest. So they buy the house on interest, then they need appliances. So they buy the appliances on interest, then they need sofa set, and they do the sofa set on interest, then they want to put hardwood floor so they get a company and they finance it and then paying interest and then the car interest and then you know schooling interest. So what we see happening is just
multiplying, multiplying, multiplying, and the interest in itself, you know how it works. If you purchase something for 1000, and you're only going to pay 100, then you're going to pay interest on the 900. So you pay you still owe 900 plus maybe 80.
And so now you have to pay 100 and paid now you still owe you know a certain amount. Obviously, that's an exaggerated amount, maybe less than that would be $20. It keeps adding keeps adding keeps adding in the end, you end up paying more. And this is not what
I always had wants us to do. You purchase you 500 You paid 500 Allah doesn't want you to work more to pay for something even cost that. And this is where our brothers and sisters, we go back to what we were saying make sure that we live within our means one of the biggest problems that I'll enter this show about data. One of the biggest we have here in Canada is that we try to live the lifestyle that everyone else is living. So we see someone with a two car garage, and we want the two car garage. And we see someone with you know, five bedrooms and we want the five bedrooms and we see someone whose basement got finished so we want the basement finished. And we see that we have a
phone that works perfectly fine perfectly fine. It's not slow it's not you know, low and memory you know it's not freezing like phones used to do back in the day they would freeze and you'd like throw the thing on the table like why isn't it working? You know our phones are working perfectly fine, but we see Oh, this one has a better camera. So we get it even though you don't even take pictures as better camera. Oh, this one is nicer as Retina display. Oh, I need it. Alright, so we spend money on things that we really don't need. And that goes back to the importance of giving. When we give to others we appreciate what we have. We ask Allah subhana wa Tada to make it easy for us to constantly
submit to Him in ways that are true and right. And we ask ALLAH SubhanA Moy to add and bless us as Haven Baraka escala xojo To make it easy for us to provide for our families in the best ways possible. Ask Allah subhana wa Tada to make us understand the importance of his world. He for he created this world fast. Why? Huge if there's something we can't afford, and we're living in Canada and we want to live that way
but can't afford it, move somewhere else and you might be able to afford it there. I remember one of the mache who lives in Australia, who's from here.
If you if you know some of the email, you'll know who he is. He's from here from Canada from the GTA, but he lives in Australia. And he always tells me doubt Allah created the world fast. And he tells us go travel. See, the whole world is created for you. If you can't afford living somewhere, go live somewhere else. And if your fear is the key, well, I can't leave my community, establish a community or be part of another community. Because Dean is all over the world.
But dunya is what we usually prioritize so that stopped prioritizing the dunya and prioritize our deen for the sake of Allah subhana Medina live within our means is Uncle Mo Hayden, about a cabal of people of southern Canada. Vina Muhammad Ali wasafi ascending Santa Monica. Why
