for him and how did he learn you're not denying it I mean was similar to what he was selling or at NAB in theory in and they have gotten Salah to atomic Tasleem prohibition the Saudi UAE acidity, Emery Washington, Dr. Timothy Sani of Kabul probably my brothers, my sisters said Mr. Ajay Kumar, I'm going to walk you over our cattle
just so the brothers, especially the brothers in particular that are doing guarantee cuff. I know, you're probably thinking, why isn't ABC on again. But every day around this time, especially Friday and Saturday, we have to turn it on Irby to cool the place down because if we don't start it now, and bring the temperature down, and then at Mohammed time and all the way until you know the middle of the night, it's going to be too hot in the building. So this is just a way of cooling the place down a little bit more efficiently.
So if you have a sweater or you know something you want to put on maybe your blanket as well, if you want to stay warm, cozy on the left, feel free to do so Shalva. Today is the 22nd day of the month of Ramadan.
And tonight again is one of the odd nights. So we're going to be going through the 22nd touches of the Quran in sha Allah to Allah,
which means we'll be going through sort of the ending of it. In fact, we'll just take maybe a lesson or two from it, and then we'll move on to Surah setup.
And if time permits, we may take one or two examples from sort of out that shot a lot of times
we'll go straight to verse number 5856 5758 of Surah Al Aqsa, Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us this really interesting message here.
In fact, we'll just skip over 56 and 57 because we did that last year where Allah subhana wa Tada says in the lotto Omega he said that we are Solunar identity yet you are somebody who was sending notice an email we hear this in the drama, footwork pretty much every single week, every single Masjid every single football that you will probably go to.
And then Allah subhanaw taala says verse number 58 When Medina you're grown and what we need in our may not be highly monetizable for cardiac terminal booktown and what is not nabina Allah subhanho wa Taala says, As for those who abuse the leading men and women unjustifiably, they will definitely bear the guilt of slander and blatant sin. So here are what Subhanallah Ana is warning us. And this warning includes believers, right? Well, Latina, you illuminate Maynila one minute, because sometimes even believers are the ones that are abusing or harming their Muslim brother and sister, right taking advantage of the Muslim Brothers sister harm could even be in slander, right
backbiting, saying something to someone, were saying something about someone when they're not present. And they have no idea and you're either saying something that's true that they would dislike or something that is a lie and not true. And that's slander that's even worse, that they would dislike as well. So Allah subhanaw taala says, As for those who abuse disbelieving men and women as unjustifiably,
they will definitely bear the guilt of slender and blatant sin. Now, when someone does say something to another person, and they know that they're wrong, but they're just being forceful in saying that to someone else, you bear that feeling and that knowledge for the rest of your life, you know that you harmed someone else, or you know that you unjustly said something to someone, or you basically forced yourself upon them, or it could be that you, you know, spoke bad about them behind their back. And you will always remember that, right? That's something that wasn't handled. And it's showing us here that you will bear that guilt, it will be with you.
And so sometimes you do something that's honest and pure, and someone comes and they like destroy that by saying something to you, that hurts your feelings, but the reality is, trust your feelings, trust that you are doing what is right and true, because as believers we're supposed to do what's right and true. And make sure that we are always going to come closer to Allah subhana to add in the truth. And so don't do something that you will live in regret for the rest of your life with that you will always have that on your mind.
Now what do we see happening in our society today we see that people hold hold on to things a lot, right? There's a lot of anxiety, a lot of stress, a lot of depression. And thoughts come into our mind what if I did this? What if I did that? What if I you know, maybe I did something wrong? Maybe I should have said this video. I should have gone there. Maybe I should have done something differently. And those thoughts
They're always with us in our mind, right? And what happens is a loss of habitat that brings them up at times when we want to rest. When you want to go to sleep, all the thoughts start coming to our mind. What about this? What about that? Maybe I should do this. Maybe I spoke to this person this way, How dare that person talk to me this way? Right? We start thinking all these things. Allah subhanaw taala is reminding us humble yourself, humble yourself. If the problem remains or mistake is with us, then fix ourselves correct ourselves. If the problem and mistake is with someone else, then try to forgive them.
Try to forgive them.
overlook their shortcomings. Make an excuse for them as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to do.
And then if we skipped a verse number 70, and 71, which ties in similar to what we're talking about, or what some kind of voids are either.
Verse number 69, we'll put it together as long as it says, yeah.
That can lead in
Called to work.
He YG all believers do not be like those who slander Moses. Those who spoke against Musa it his setup, but a more clear to him of what they said.
And he was honorable in the sight of Allah. So Allah, despite people saying things about us, if it's not true, Allah will clear that, right? It won't be something that's on our account. Even though someone is saying, Oh, you're like this, you're like that you're like this, you're like that if it isn't true, that's not something that we are going to be held accountable for. Then also, can we try this as
your lady in
telco your eternal more power to you?
Sadie, all believers, be mindful of Allah. Yeah, you know, those of us who believe it took Allah, Be conscious of Allah azza wa jal, think of him be aware that he knows what we're doing what we're saying where we are, and hear specifically speech is being referred to it took a mall, we're going to go to London studied, Allah subhanaw taala says, and say that which is true, what is right
now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that we should not say anything, if it isn't, if it isn't good, right? We have nothing good to say, When can you want me to be learning when you fear failure, or failure on only your smart? Whoever believes in the one that final date, then say that which is good or remain silent? Here, I wasn't happy to hear the same guru Colin sadita. Say what is right, which means sometimes we need to speak up
to say the truth.
Even if it hurts,
sometimes we need to speak up.
Sometimes we need to say something straight.
I remember one time.
Actually, I'll give another example because I don't want anyone to think that's, you know, an example that applies here.
I think we can all figure out examples of things right. Sometimes the examples are taken out of context, and we're live streaming as well and I don't want people to think something
that applies here in the community. So it's important for us to speak up and speak up for the truth and what is right then Allah subhana wa Tada says, when you do speak up, if you do speak up, if you are the one who says the truth and what is right use
while feeling localizado back home woman
Como estas en now the
wasp 100 Allah says He will bless you with good deeds for what you've done.
He will bless you with good deeds, your good deeds will be counted right?
And forgive your sins. Allah subhanaw taala will remove those sins. What did we do to deserve this?
What did we do to deserve being blessed with good deeds and being forgiven of our sins?
Checking to see who's paying attention and who's falling asleep. What did we do?
Good. We had taqwa and Allah subhanaw taala. We were conscious and aware of him and we spoke
Look up for what was right.
I was heavily to Allah says, You will be blessed with good deeds and your sins will be forgiven. And Allah Subhana Allah says, Woman, you'll need our salah. And whoever obeys on one, His Messenger has truly achieved a great triumph for God as 1000 Almina that's like winning a marathon. You know, everyone wants to win the marathon, they want to run, compete, and you know, put in the time and the energy and the effort to actually get to where they need to go. And finally, when they reach the end of the marathon,
that goal is in sight for quite Faza Fosun Avena like you're the one who won. You did great. You were successful. And what's the reward here, gentlemen? The reward is genuine. Right? So it's important for us to speak the truth and say what is right and not to spread things that are wrong. We'll move to sort of Southern chulmleigh
sub verse number 10. And
we'll go right to verse number 13, maybe more, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada that says, one other thing he does, the
of discipline, which either now is talking about their wood and Sulaiman some of the blessings that prophet dellwood And Prophet Solomon added him as Salem received from apostle cowboy time. Now, why does Allah subhanaw taala bring up blessings? Why does he mentioned blessings to us?
Why do you think Allah subhanaw taala mentions blessings in the Quran many times over and over, you've mentioned this, this blessing and that blessing that was given to this profit and that profit anyway.
So we can be grateful. So we can think of Allah subhanaw taala and be thankful and grateful to Allah for giving us the things that he's given to us, and blessing us with the things that he's blessed us with, and blessing us with the things that he hasn't blessed us with, which are blessings from Allah as well. Sometimes we are given something that is not easy for us to bear.
Right? And so we look at it and say, Alhamdulillah I don't have this issue. And Hamdulillah I don't have that many payments to make, for example, you see some people and their lifestyle is like, how they can afford it. But when you do the math, you're like, Whoa, I there's no way I'd be able to afford that. And Hamdulillah I don't have those payments. Alhamdulillah I have, you know, the home that I have, and the place where I live and the things that I have is sufficient for me. So Allah Subhana Allah says indeed we granted Deadwood. A great privilege from us, commending him or sorry commending the mountains. Yeah Gee Bernal Allah subhanaw taala speaks to the mountains tells the
mountains or mountains
echo in hymns like repeat after that would add a Salah with him.
Be busy in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala with the hood Allah his setup and the birds as well. We made iron moldable for him. So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says that the mountains and the birds it would take place in Ada, with that would add a setup that will do is given which scripture
is the who write the songs taken out there who does a moron he was given that and he would say it and recite it often. Devil daddy his setup was a was a person of patience, a person of gratitude, chakra, lots and lots of sugar we would do to Allah subhanaw to add lots of patients as well. And he was given a lot from Allah subhanaw taala tested with a lot but Alhamdulillah Allah Subhana Allah blessed him with the ability to be grateful for what he was given. And so the mountains the birds would take part. And what's interesting is as well with regards to the birds, even when Prophet devil died, a Senate passed away. The Prophet dealt with the idea his Senate had passed away, his
janazah the funeral procession, taking his body to be buried. And the entire time they were burying him. There were so many birds that were hovering around in the sky that they were covering and shading. The people that were down below.
Like they came out even the animals came out for the janazah have dealt with it has said they want to take part in the recitation with him. And this is an encouragement and always has been even for myself. You know, this is one of the reasons why we should give our children names that motivate them.
I remember when I was young, my name is devilment, and I didn't know anything about profit networks.
In fact, if I could be totally honest, my parents didn't really tell
Teach me much about profit. Oh, there is no, there's only once we, you know, we're like, I think 6789 years old going to the masjid attending on Saturday, Sunday, you know the classes. And then we started learning about Stories of the Prophets. And I learned a little bit about Prophet dealt with. I was like, Oh, this is so cool. Like he was someone who loves to recite, right? So we have the Quran, and he was a prophet. So it's good if I do the things that he did, because that's you know, I have the same name. And I found it interesting as well. This next part where I've also pan which is as well and then we'll Hadid
that we made iron, malleable, very soft for Dell with either his setup, he could mold iron. My dad is a welder. Right? So it was like, Oh, this is like cool, right? My dad's a welder, he melts iron quite well being right with an arc welder. I was like, Oh, that's interesting. And I developed his interest in wanting to know more about profit delta and a histogram simply because we shared the same name.
And the same goes for our children, when we give them names like Somalia,
Khadija fattening, they're like who was Khadija? You tell them about Khadija Don't be alarmed. And how she was the most beloved to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you know the sacrifices that she made and having children and previous marriages before the Prophet sallallahu ascended up, which is examples for us as well, that it's okay. If in the future, someone goes through a divorce, it's okay. You'll get married again, you will have children, Barrett be patient with it. Look, who ever be alone, where I ended up marrying afterwards, the prophets of Allah. So Allah blessed her with a really nice spouse, someone who looked after her and loved her so much, because of how much
she loved? Well, not because of entirely, but also a part of it was because of the love that she showed to him.
And that relationship, and then also looking at her finances that she was some of the business. So it might empower our children and daughters eight, you know, I want to be someone in business, someone who does this and someone was like her. So we aspire to be like the people of the past, we give good names. We think of the names that they have encouraged them in their names, your name means this, did you know that
you should be more like this and be more like that. Right? That's important for us. And so a lot of the time you'll find
sometimes people who
are in villages, you know, small places, not much education. I remember when I was a student in Medina, some of my classmates I couldn't understand their names, like it just boggled my mind that their parents would give them names that are like complete shift. Right? And I'm like, You guys are Muslim? How did you get this name? You know, like,
some of the names are like really, really strange. I don't even want to say them sometimes, you know, and I asked them, How did you get this name? And they would say, and this is happening in many places on Earth, their parents would take the Koran. Anytime there's a child is born, they just randomly open the Quran and put their finger down. wherever their finger lands, that's the name that they're going to give to their child. So I know someone named Katherine. All right, Kathy, I'm sorry. I know someone named.
Remember that name was compounded, but somehow I was just like, how did you get this? It was the same thing. Parents just opened it. And grandparents open the book, put their finger down, wherever it is called us. I know someone who was named Zanni right? Zanni like Zanni is your name is Danny is like supposedly something else? Well as Sandy like, how did you get that name? My parents just opened up on Xanadu Zania cause
Whoa, you have to understand what you're doing with the Quran as well. Right? It's not like oh, it's a holy book. Everything in Allah subhanaw taala calls people Mushrik right. You're gonna call yourself emotionally?
No, we give good names. The Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to give good names, right? Names like that are linked to Allah subhana wa, tada Abdullah. Abdullah, about to walk. Right. And then of course, the names of those who are close to the Prophet sallallahu I think it was Sunday, because some of their names were no good. Right? Like Abdullah ships, the Prophet sallallahu edited some of them and tell them change your name.
Right from now on, we call you this.
No one calls you that anymore. Your name? Right? So good names, names, have good meetings, ask Allah subhanaw taala to be easy for us. So Allah Subhanallah to add us as well and then Allah will Hadid This is a profit or loss of 100. Allah empowered and gave him skills. He didn't need the money of the people. That will daddy his son was a king who did not take money from his people. He didn't take wealth from his people. He worked and earned his own wealth.
So he used to make suits of armor, right like coats of armor, and whatever anyone needed out of metal, and he used to mold it and sell it
once upon a time to give him that skill.
And then Allah Subhana Allah says, We made iron moldable for him instructing make full length armor, perfectly balanced, perfectly balancing the links and work righteously old family of dough to wear medals. All they had was accountable to Alice's and work, you know, righteously. Indeed I am seeing of what you do was Henry Thomas, reminding him I know what you do. Right? Don't think that you have this kingship, this land that you govern, and you can now just do whatever you want to do. I know what you do. I know what you say, I know where you're going. I know how you govern the people. And I know what decisions you make amongst them as well. So make sure that you make the right decisions.
And this same sort of treatment was given to
his son that would elevate Salem was the father of profit. So hey, man, if it's sunny man, I like his adopted certain characteristics of a father, where he could also communicate with not just human beings. So Allah subhanaw taala says and to Sulaiman, We subjected the wind, it's morning stride was amongst journey, and so was its evening stride, and we caused a stream of molten copper to flow for him. And we subjected some of the jinn to work under him by his Lord's will, and whoever have them deviated from our command, we meet them taste the torment of the Blaze. So ALLAH SubhanA, Allah to Allah shows us here, that sooner or later, Sam, he had the ability to control the wind, right. And
he also had the ability to speak to the animals we know in Surah, two novella, we took that example as well. So of the ants, right wants to kind of water either shows us that the ant calls out to its fellow adds a get underground, so the amount is coming with his arm, right. And so the man heard that he understood what the animals were saying. So the man himself also had the ability as we see in verse number 14.
When we decreed the death of Sulaiman nothing indicated to the gym that were there, nothing indicated to the gym, that he was dead, except the termites eating away at his staff. So when he collapsed, the jinn realized that if they had really known the unseen,
they would have remained in such humiliating servitude. They wouldn't sorry, they wouldn't have remained in such humiliating servitude.
So what was happening was that soon a man at his center was observing, he was watching the creation of a law that worked for him, right. And they weren't carrying out work. They were digging and doing whatever needed to be done. So they met or they his surrounding, he had a staff, that was wood, and he was leaning against it. Okay, he was leaning against his stuff.
And at that moment, while he was watching and observing, he passed away, when we die, do our eyes closed.
No, they just stay open. Right, someone closes them for us after we pass away. So his eyes remained open. So he passed away, and he was just there.
And it seemed as though he was still alive and still watching. And Allah subhanaw taala tells us that had it not been for the termites that ate at the bottom of his staff chewed away at the bottom of his staff, it was wood and made his balance be thrown off.
And then he felt
that's when they realized that he passed away.
And Allah subhanaw taala made this happen, specifically, to show us as human beings, don't think the jinn have the knowledge of the Unseen only about us. Because had they known the unseen have they had knowledge of things that we as human beings don't have that belongs only to our boss Subhan Allah to Allah, they would have known that Solomon was dead.
And they would have stopped working. But they continued on because they thought so the man was still standing there watching them.
So this is a loss of habitat is way pitiful, simple, small examples, but such a powerful message. How many times as a Muslim and you know some cultures as well, because I see this trend right some cultures.
The initial thought is always like, oh, there must be match
because it must be gin, gin possession, gin, right. And what happens is, there's a certain way to help ourselves and help others that are affected. And there's a way that's not permissible. I remember when we were young, we came from Montreal, I came with one of my friends family. And we went to see someone who was considered a Mowlana, in
And I was a teenager, I didn't know any of this stuff, like we learned to Islam, but we didn't know this stuff in detail how to live our time, we didn't really have people who could teach us like we have nowadays. And my friend's mom, she said, Okay, we're going to see this one. I were visiting him in his house and like, Who is this guy, like, you've never met him before? Like, I know many Imams. I've never heard of this one before. Right. And this was after I had studied in a data room here in Ajax. So I know that many Imams but never knew this one. And we went there. And while we were there, he was like, Okay, I need your shirts, I need to do this. You need this piece of paper, can you
write this and burn that and do this? And basically, he was like, communicating, then he was like, do this thing. I'm like, What is this guy? I don't feel that this is this.
I didn't feel like that was a redeem. But I didn't know. So because I didn't know. I thought this was right.
And I remember, we went to a few times, because I used to come to Toronto a lot, right? Especially after I got my driver's license when I was 17. I used to come every two or three weeks to Toronto. And because there's no halal food in Montreal, Lisa, come just eat Popeyes by the way.
And we would come and my friend's mom, like, she was like, oh, there's something wrong with their with their daughter.
So one day
his mom told us you to go to visit the diner and you know, ask him tell him this the issue and, and bring your sister shirt, right? He asked for some things, a shirt and undergarments and this and that. Really. Okay, this is weird. I told my friend while we're driving like, Sorry, man, this just sounds like weird. This doesn't sound like our dean.
We got there. He said, Okay, leave this stuff with me. Come back tomorrow and pick it up. So the next day we came back picked it up. And as we're leaving, he's like, You need to take this. And you need to go to a cemetery. And you need to bury it in the grave of someone who's righteous.
Find someone who you know, who's who you feel is pious and variant or like teenagers, like pious, we know that died that pious. I don't know anyone that's pious, right? That died in Montreal, who?
But even spookier than that was like, we have to go to the cemetery and dig up a grave. Are we even allowed to do that? Right? So you're, like, confused. And I remember my friend and the middle of the night, we went to the cemetery. And I'm like, bro, we can't do this man. Like, stick it somewhere else. We're not touching any graves. I'm like, I don't want no like, strange thing happening to us. And so he was like, Whatever, man, we just went under the tree. And he just like, took the shovel, shoved it in the ground, open the earth, put the shirt and buried it. And we just left like we were like we're not touching any graves.
Two, three years later, I went to study in Medina, started learning Arabic and reading books and stuff like that sitting within the shelf. And then I remember one day in class, our teacher was talking about magic and jinn and you know, things that people do that they are actually working with the gym working with the shale team, doing things that is considered black magic, right? How long ship
and I started to cry. I was in class and I remember I started to cry. I was like, what if I did something wrong.
And so after class, I remember walking with our chef to his car. And I told him the whole story. And he brought me in his car and I drove with him to where he was going. And I was like shift like you have to tell me what do I do? Like, is there something I need to do? So he asked me some questions like to see is everything okay? What's going on in your life and so on. And it's like, oh, don't worry just make Toba and move on. But don't ever associate with these people again. And then he explained to me what they do. And that's when I started to research more and more and more about the jinn and so on and that, you know, realm. My brothers and sisters as many Muslims that use the jinn.
Actually, I should rephrase this, there are many people who claim to be Muslim.
Because when people do things that our actions have shipped, we can't say that they're Muslim.
Someone who's committing ship.
How's that person Muslim? A Muslim is someone who submits to Allah alone, period. That person can't be a Muslim, and people who do magic
Allah subhanho wa taala.
In the Sharia that is revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam has made it very clear the stance that we as Muslims are supposed to take against them. But they are not believers. And they're not part of us. They don't join us, they don't sit with us. And they shouldn't even be with us. Right? And for those who govern the land, right, if it's like Muslim lands, they should be taken away from from the people, they shouldn't even be living with the people. Right, because what they're doing is harmful to human beings.
So we ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect us and keep us safe. And to learn the simple examples, Allah subhanaw taala shows is such a beautiful, simple example, that only Allah knows the knowledge of the Unseen. And people think that the jinn has some special powers and knowledge that Allah you know, has given to them that they can do things that they're connected with Allah know, the Shanthi and are not able to do these things. And they don't have that knowledge because Allah subhanaw taala did not give it to them. We move on in sha Allah Matera
reverse number 34 and 39. Very simple lesson here, Allah subhanho data showing us about wealth. He says whenever we sent a Warner, to a society, its elite the people from amongst them So Warner could be a prophet or messenger, someone who's going to come and convey a message and warn the people worship Allah because if you don't, something that happened to you, right? So whenever we sent a warner to a society, that elite from amongst them, those who are really wealthy, those who felt they were untouchable. Okay. And I'm not saying that every single wealthy person is like this.
Sometimes people they listen and they say, Oh, he has something against wealthy people. No. I've told you before from the 10 companions who are mentioned as in the Hadith as being promised paradise, half of them are multimillionaires of their time.
multimillion multimillionaires of their time.
In fact, you can even try and push that to billionaires, when you do the math and see in their lifetime, how much wealth they had, like unbelievable amounts of wealth. So it's not that a wealthy person is like this. No, Allah subhanaw taala saying whenever we sent a warning to a society, that elite would say, we truly reject what you have been sent with. And they would add, we are far superior to the believers in wealth and children and we will never be punished. And Allah subhanaw taala says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, sure the it is my lord who gives abundant or limited provisions to whoever you wills but most people do not know.
So wealth comes from a loss of habitat. Okay, our it is from Allah. We learned that already.
But sometimes, wealth gets to our hearts and this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to keep wealth in our hands and don't let it get to our hearts the wealth should come and he goes not that whatever you get you give away and you live in poverty no no whatever you get you invest as Muslims a huge part of our deen in terms of business and earnings is to invest what we earn
why is it important for the believers to invest what they earn and not just save it
okay circulation of money why else?
I think you said something same thing
ah pay more Zeca or pay
Okay, good. Robertson along is something advice, but why
did you say something so let your system
create jobs. Okay. Uncle was on uncle was saying it that he said that you would pay more as a cop, right? You get the more you make. The more you invest. The more you have, the more you're going to pay in his account so it eliminates the poverty but think of Zika Zika is a key word.
If you earn wealth and you save it
know you still have to pay. Let's take an example.
Exactly. Because when you earn wealth and you save it every year you have to pay zakat on it. So let's say you have
$100,000 just use like a random number 100,000 All
Oops, you don't have to pay is a cat 2.5%, how much is 2.5% of 100,000 2500. So now you have $97,500. The following year, you're going to pay the gap on $97,500. And then it's going to come down to what maybe 95,000 something dollars, and then it's going to come down, come down, come down, you continue to deplete your savings. So it's important for us to invest because we want to increase in our savings, always our savings should increase because if we don't increase it, then it's going to deplete and we won't have it.
So some people think I'm not going to save because if I save then I have to pay circa
nothing wrong with that, as uncle was saying, we pay them how do we eliminate poverty, there's no poverty anymore, like the time of Armageddon, even Abdulaziz, they had the Muslim ummah was so wealthy that there was no poor people, they could not find more people to give Sakai to, they had so much Zika so much wealth, they didn't know what to do with it.
They literally mean like eradicated poverty.
We dream of those days, right?
When you think of it
as a Muslim Ummah, the amount of wealth that we have, I remember a study being done a few years ago, that it was something like
if 2% I think it was two or 4%, of the wealthiest Muslims, and the study was done in Bangladesh. Okay. So we know that in Bangladesh, there's a lot of people who live below the line of poverty, right? They live very, very simple lies.
And the study was something like two or 4% of the wealthiest Muslims were to pay, there's a gap, there would be no poverty in the entire country of Bangladesh.
That's just mind boggling.
And if that's the case with a country, that's population is so huge, then what about the rest of the countries on earth?
And what about the wealth that we have? And I was talking to one of the brothers I think it was you were talking last night, right? I don't remember. No, it was your uncle. We're talking about soccer. And I was saying how 10 years ago, maybe some of you were paying years ago, but Is that how it was not really the focus in the Muslim ummah.
15 years ago, 20 years ago, we knew that xinchao was a pillar of Islam. I don't really know. And I never really heard in our massage it 20 years ago, even 30 years ago, when we were children, you know, 1015 years old, hearing about zircons account calculation and having these institutions set up for us to be able to calculate and paisa listeners were like, No, we don't have money. Now, to be fair, of course, most of the Muslims at that time when they came to Canada, they were working hard to send the money back home and provide for their families. So they were living with less money here than they were sending back home. Right. But now and hamdullah, we've reached that stage where we
haven't earned good. And so we shouldn't be calculating and paying out errors.
Because I'm telling you, there are many, many, many needs in our Muslim community, Muslim community.
There are many Muslims that are living in conditions that you and I are not aware of.
And when you find out about it, and you find out their situation, it's really sad, really, really sad.
So we ask Allah Subhan was added to make us a means of continuing on to do a favor, and to make it easy for us to learn how to invest our wealth, and to give it to others. Because remember, is when Zeca is due. So for example, you have the 100,000 you put in your bank account one year ago today, today's April 23. So let's just for the sake of the example, it is the what's the history date today. 22nd, right. 22nd just so 22nd One year ago today on the 22nd of Ramadan, you received $100,000.
Today, that 2.5% if you kept the $100,000 in your savings,
that 2.5% doesn't even belong to you.
It doesn't belong to you. It belongs to Allah.
We have absolutely no right to use it.
And it has to and must be given back to a wasp.
That's how strict it is with Zika. And remember, Abu Bakar of the Allah or after the passing of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, he vowed to wage war against those that refuse to pay there's
if you were to say, oh my god Allah and he was going to do that people say yes, we understand. Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah and he was always calm, always composed, always conducting himself in a very cool manner. Abu Bakar of the Aloha and just not long after the Prophet sallallahu It was sort of passed away. Many of the tribes that embraced Islam were saying, No, we're not things I've got anymore. No, because that was something that was only for the life of the prophet Sallallahu it was specific to when he's alive now we don't do it anymore. He's like, Nope, we're gonna come and we're gonna fight you. If you're not gonna pay Zakat, and you're not believers. That was the stance that
against them. Abubaker but the Obama like one of the most calm companions
to show us how serious it is in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala
and remember, yeah, you already know it. Aquila, worku, golden, sadita Abubakar, the other one, he said what was right.
This is a pillar of Islam. If you refute your views, and you're not going to follow through, you're not going to obey and we're coming after you. Now most of Hannibal Lecter either grant us a deeper understanding of our deen and make it easy for us to understand the verses and if the Quran and grant us the ability to sit and to ponder and reflect over the Quran and the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, always even after the month of Ramadan about a cryptography comm or someone was sending
us off we were sending was sending money
