Not fair on you and it's not fair on them because you don't get the reward you're supposed to get if you sit at the back of the machine. I want you to get maximum reward and Ramadan maximum reward those spaces must never be open there that's like gold that's the you know when you go to a rugby match and they put you not even in the front of the stand they put you in the box that's the box from here today.

You see now you said a very good example I people come now that say Mashallah we have to fit into the soft now we can just sit anyway.
So last week, we spoke about knobbies Mariela Elisa Salaam and about the dog is Mary lol is Elisa to Salam. And Abby Rahim Allah subhanaw taala. When they say the robina JAL na Muslim Anika woman Daria Tina mutton Muslim Matan duck, they may Allah make us to Muslims Brahim in Israel and make of our offspring and on a Muslim ummah. So they asked Allah for this Muslim, this is the Muslim Ummah, which Allah gave and then they made another one another one where they said Rabbana Baba, Fie him Rasool amin home yet to Allah him
they say Oh Allah send
amongst them one prophet knows that Prophet Muhammad Allah so Allah what must he come and do yet lol II Tikka to come and read for them. They are at a book and when was this book reveal? This book was revealed in the month of Ramadan. nahi, Brahim alysa Salam 1000s of years before the prophets are allowed as a lump made to Allah that Allah who sent this formula and send to this former one prophet and send to this oma to that Prophet, a book which would be revealed to him in the month of Ramadan.
So powerful is the daughter of the embryologist and and the agenda is very, very powerful at the hour mukalla eva evisa salam says that is the essence of faith. It is the essence of worship. And so today we will go to the that was the
describe also the verse in the Quran where Allah says Shahada, Ramadan, and levy on Delafield for the month of Ramadan is in which Allah says in the Quran, the next verse allows founders is what either Salah Khyber the undefined near corrib Nicholas says and Obama de la la la salam, if my servants come to you and ask you about me,
either Sila kariba, the amny they asked you about me so how about many questions ways Allah?
Can Allah yes when we whisper to him must be raised our voices when we make dua, can we make it silently can we whisper to our last Fontella
so the best way to speak
dollars to whisper Don't raise your voices Don't shout
in a tone voice unless nearer to you then you mean heavily worried, then you enjoy your vein. So Allah says we're either Salah Chi by the end of Mohammed Salah if my servants would ask you about me, my slaves ask you about me. Find me Kareem. Tell them I am near to them.
I'm near to them.
I'm near to them.
No one else is near to them as I am to them as a loved one. Not your mother, not your father, not your chef not to him. I'm not your pinata. molana alswamitra says I am near to them.
For him near Kareem ouji, Buddha, da da da Allah finances. And I answer the call. Then the of the person who calls to me You asked me, nobody else. There's nobody between you and Allah, you speak to Allah. Allah answers you. Allah say so. In the Big Buddha today that the unfurl yesterday Buddha, Allah says to be obedient to me, finally a surgery buddy, well, you're meant to be and believe in me.
So that you may become rightly guided, so it may come back regardless.
So this is a central verse and this verse comes immediately after the month, the verse on the mantle of Ramadan, which means Ramadan is a month of prayer, it's a month of asking, it's a month of pleading, it's a month of
asking Allah for forgiveness month of asking Allah for is a month of asking Allah for health, it's a month of asking Allah for so many things. Lahu Murphy sembawang it will map it out to Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth, in the heavens in the air.
And when we look at the lives of the MVR of the prophets of Allah subhanaw taala we find that they made at every critical point in their life, this make dua to Allah Kanata
in the good times in the bad times. The good times is to thank allows pantalla critical moments used to put up their hands
and is to ask Allah subhanaw taala
and today we want to look at the life of Musa last week we look at the life of Ibrahim Ali salatu salam and smile Allison's Salam. And I know for me, it's difficult to fit in the life of a prophet in
45 minutes. But you know, I said last night to myself in life today, I can beat myself I'd be so happy. If I can finish early today. I'll be so happy. Then I thought but then all of you be disappointed.
So should I go for my dog for your dog?
Alright, this might go afterwards in shop.
So today we're gonna talk about musala Salatu Salam
I will give you a short introduction as to the history of musala serrato. Salah Musa is one of the most often spoken about prophets in the Holy Quran. There's no other prophets Allah speaks about so much. That maybe Whoo, sorry, salat wa salam. Why? Because he had a difficult job. Like we today have a difficult job with the same kind of people. He had also an extremely difficult job with the same kind of people, the bunnies
and there's a lot of similarity between him and the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Lots of times when he came to Medina lots of times he would ask the Jews, why are you doing this? And they would say, because of Moses, Moses said this and Moses said there is an emphasis on follow. So the first, the first fasting in Islam was because when a piece of Salam came to Medina, the first time He fasted was on the 10th of Muharram. And why did he fall on the 10th of Muharram? Because when he came in the Jews were fasting on the 10th of Mahatma. And so, then evisa salaam, said, If Moosa was saved on this day, he is closer to us in New York,
we will also force industry. So there is a connection again between fasting and the bunnies. Eli Moosa AlLahi wa Salatu was Salam.
Most I two challenges.
If you compare the life of masa and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam both had these challenges, the first challenge was,
he was challenged by your own and the people of their own idol worshipers. That was his biggest challenge.
The same challenge that the Navy Salam had in Makkah challenged by the Quraysh, a very well established tribe
Also idol worship,
and then moves on to Salam when Allah Subhana took him out of Egypt.
When he landed in the desert with these people, the bunnies are healed. He was then confronted with a people who said they believed but in their hearts there was no belief. They're called munafo.
So he was confronted in the desert in the Sinai desert by this same people
who turned against him. They went when he just left for a few minutes to go and get the Torah. When he came back, they had made a pot of gold or the gold melted down and they worship the cobbler.
Now, he saw Salah when he left back and he came to Medina, he was confronted with the same challenge. The challenge was that amongst the Jews, there were those who said they believed were Manasa Abdullah newbay is a classical example of a Jew who became Muslim but remained a monarch till the day that he died. And so the even when even when African amongst the Mahajan wrote people who came from Africa, many people came from Makkah not in the interest of Islam, but in their own commercial interest.
So you see the likeness between the life of Moses and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
In a nutshell, the events of Moses life is described by Allah subhanaw taala in Surah Toluca sauce
is the 28th surah. The Holy Quran from verse 14 onwards allows 100 talks about Moses life in Egypt, and we know what his life was initially, he was eventually landed in the house of around and he was brought up like a prince.
He is what we call a royalty. One of the few prophets said, was a royalty, because there were other prophets as well, there was, there was still a man who was very rich and there was a lot of other royal prophets. But he grew up he wasn't himself, he was a Jew. He was from the Bani Israel human, he wasn't a Jew was one of the one Israel because he was a Muslim, Jewish, maybe this is tribal affiliation. So he was this friend that grew up in a house of brown.
while anabella should allow his insurer passes when he reaches the age of maturity, and Allah says in another words no para
balharshah de Bella arbaeen Asana when a person reaches the age of 40 it is the height of his strength from the it is slowly downhill. So from zero to 40, you are growing in strength all the time, until you reach 40
this is bad news. The good news is something
as good news for him.
Mashallah, this is not 14, he still dragon is getting stronger and stronger and stronger. So most analysis Allah Allah talks about analysis, voila, Bella was
Tina hoekman wildeman. Allah says when Moosa reached the age of 14,
allows father gave him two things Hawkman Allah made him and daddy.
And Allah gave him Adam, Allah gave him knowledge. And of course, we know, Moser was one of the strongest if not the strongest prophets. He was a very strong man. So big, strong man, he lived in a palace, he was fed the best food and everything. He probably had a gym and whatever else they had at that time, you know, whatever they did. So he was a beautiful young man at the age of 40. And what he did was he, he used to go into the city was to leave the palace, every day in the afternoon used to leave his palace. And he's volunteered to help people in need in the city. He would walk the streets of the city of Egypt, Cairo, the time, maybe another city, and you'd walk around and you'd
see where people end up and you would help them
allows to have the law says and this is this.
This act of ease Allah refers to me in the beginning as
well. dareka waka Delica, Nigella, merci, Nene, Allah says, Moosa was of the masini in Allah gives him this name of sin in he was he was a moccasin was a Marxist, he was a good person, most are strong, he was beautiful, he was healthy, he had knowledge, he was a prophet, but he also had the characteristic of a son he loved to help other people because it was the central quality
so because of His Son, and of course we know that Ramadan is the month of
Ramadan is a month where we stretch farther and
Help we give we share, give us a car we give out sadaqa we give whatever we can give. You know, there's so many disasters happening around us. We need to open a heart and see what we can do. For the people who are close to us, I mean are made working at home people who help us around our houses. Those are the people that come first. Remember your family and the people who work for you come first. In anything that you give, whether it's soccer within soccer,
first look in your family to give because if every man gives to his family, they be no poor people.
Other people have to give to your poor family. That's why they stay poor. But if every man looks after his family was poor, Allah gave there be nothing more love less poverty.
So because musala sasaram didn't want to be recognized when he goes out, used to go in the mid afternoon. allows for analysis haina often it means earlier, used to go at the time when people was not moving around.
What we call the time of siesta, which was a very hot place. So the Egyptians from that time were ready to sleep in the mid afternoon, not even the slaves used to work at that time.
And we know of course, in Islam, it's called kulula in the Navy Southern so take this nap every afternoon of his life.
So hey, nothing early I used to walk around. And one day when he walked around, he saw two men fighting in the street as his own sort of passes. So Allah describes the scene in terms of costs.
of course the object of this lecture is not the story of Moses it is it is the story of the daughter of Musa like last year there was the story of the daughter of Ibrahim and is married. So today we are talking about the daughter of Musa what is still important about the daughter of Musa last week you heard what was very important of the daughter of Ibrahim and his smile. And this month of course is the month of
the month, month of asking Allah
so these two been we're fighting our dementia it was I mean, how do we allow pharmacists one man was from his group, which was the Bani Israel. One was the Israelites and the other one was nadwi. He was of the people of the route.
So of course Miuccia was looking at a settings on anonymous, my Muslim brother doesn't my brother I don't think he said Jewish brother was a Jew didn't exist in English at the time. So since my Israelite brother
and you know, allow some describe what he did.
He gave this man one shot, just one shot.
The man died. He killed the man. for workers. What for workers?
hourly workers means like he whacked him, workers that seems like it's the same beginning Walk walk with him. But of course it's no relation between the two. But it shows your strong mutual interest when you give this man one shot in the man. And so the two causes you look at me as if I'm saying something which
Moosa did kill him.
And of course, Moosa was shocked at his taste and we didn't realize he was was such a strong man
so let's learn that the kill was a policeman man in Africa will kill any normal person you know this they look for you when you kill a policeman. The police really get angry. They really look for you.
So Mousavi immediately when this happened, he said Robbie color in in in Nairobi,
in nidal Hampton FC Robbie Knievel Hampton FC. Sarah alive. No, look what I've done. I've wronged myself, you know, first really
Forgive me for her for Allah. Because it was a mistake. He didn't mean to kill him.
And I forgave him.
But then there was the men who may help.
The man who may have eventually gave up his name, say they were looking for musala
every way they were looking for me as a man and for musala. He, of Salatu was Salam.
And, of course, Moosa knew that
the first question they would ask him would be, why did you kill this, the man of your own and not the other man. And they would eventually discover that he was a, he was an Israelite, he was not in fact, the son of Iran.
So most rsfsr made a beeline for the desert, Ruby to Egypt, you know, you cross the, the the rate season
and then you get into the Sinai Peninsula. So he went and he crossed over and he was in the desert. Now you know, if the desert those of you who have experience of the desert, the desert, you can walk in a circle you're even though you're walking in a circle you'll quickly die off
thirst, you'll die of thirst and dehydration.
in a way was growing and allowed to Abdullah gave him a GPS,
divine GPS. Everything belongs to Allah.
So Allah made him walk and he walks straight
to a city called madeon. Some Arab, Muslim Arab city, Medina.
He was living in the desert before he was a prince, he lived in a palace, he lived in Egypt. So he was never in the desert. So he walks and he walks in, he gets to meridian. And as he comes to meridian desert of the town, and there is a river running, go to the river, and he drinks of the water. And as he's drinking all the water, he sees two women allows for that season of her on you he sees two women, two ladies.
And what was happening to these two ladies is these two ladies are sheep with him. And they were like, they're having a tug of war with the sheep. They were pulling the sheep away from the water. She was wanting to drink water, they pull the sheep away from the water. And he was wondering what Allah describing what Allah says that, oh, Danny, Danny needs to pull back to pull back and to push him to pull back. So that the sheep, maybe a group of sheep, and they this maneuver was going on. So Mossad and Sam went to him and said, What? Why don't why don't you allow your sheep to drink water? They said no, we see those men, they those men, they do not allow us to drink too late. Our sheep
drink water until they sheep as drunk they would. And they very bad men, they perverts if we do that, they come here and they look at us and they wink at us and they will sell at us, you know. So we rather keep our sheep back until the sheep and animals have done their full and then we then we do it. So musar thought you know this is strange. I mean, who is who is the main ways you menfolk? So they said, you know, a boo,
boo nasze. One career our father is a very old man.
So there was the father and two daughters, for Old Men, father and two daughters. And what do we see here we see two women working two young women actually working, looking after the sheep, maybe they use a lot of other work because they fathers today we find the same thing. Women are sometimes forced to go and work. We can't judge them. Unless we know the circumstance. Of course, it's ideal for women to be at home to look after the home. Hello, Swansea so in the Quran, but if we want to be at home, but do you have an idea, we have an example of women who went out to work because their father was old. They're the
they're the reason.
And of course it isn't allowed. And he also like they were men at that time.
Traveling women today, of course, in the workplace, also there are men who travel women. But that doesn't mean that
it's not allowed. We will dress properly they behave themselves like men will say that but women men should also behave themselves. If men behave themselves and women wear themselves will have a good society wouldn't have to feel it.
So Moza said, Give me the sheep, he took them and he watered all the animals. And again, we were sitting under the tree and the shade of a tree and he went back to sit under the shade of the tree. Remember now Moosa was in the middle of the desert. He knew nobody.
He had no shelter, he had no money. He had nothing. All he had at that point in time was the shade of that particular tree. So he's sitting there and
what does he do?
He makes what is he said?
Why is this to another special door? What is he say to all of us and he says, For color A B? He says oh my lord Lima and delta l am inhaling *y
he says My Lord
truly is talking with sincerity he's in the desert. He knows nobody is being honored for murder.
So he's in a bit he's in a really critical position. So it says our law truly I am in need. system.
I am in need I'm *in what *ery with the word function comes from means a broken back.
If a query is the person so in diverse of zacchara last fall talks about says in nimasa the call to Lil sakara evil Misaki. Allah says xhaka is for the fukumura nmss
The word sakara is the plural of appeal for appeal comes from the word. The linguistic meaning is somebody whose back is broken. In other words, a theory is a person who has zero effect here is a person who has nothing. He sleeps in a shelter, he's got no work. You see them every day walking up and down the streets looking for these are Pokhara
allows Walker says when it comes to soccer, they are the first deserving they're the first deserving. Then the second deserving is the miskeen.
Also a poor person, but a person where something
maybe it's got a house, maybe he's got a car, maybe he's got a job. But he only a couple of Randy's got 10 kids so so miskeen is somebody who has bernadina a factory somebody who has nothing is down and out, smells bad, he can't shower, he can't wash. You don't want to shake his hand sometimes because that's a field. Those are the people that we should give sacrifice. So he says to Allah, I am in need of what he says I may need your Allah of what ever good
means hiring of whatever good. You have. We all are anything good that you have to give me Give it to me, Allah
bestowed on me.
And the word good failure means mean can mean two things. It can mean he says to Allah, Allah send me good.
Cause he says and delta la sec Allah semi down from heaven, I mean yet is that was the only thing he would ask because he had nothing. So he said, Yala, send me from heaven. Anything that is good, anything.
That is the first meaning. The second meaning is, Oh Allah, give me opportunities to do good.
We ask for two things. Ask for something from our lautaro Tada. And you also ask Allah to give him opportunity to do good.
So basically saying all I'm bankrupt, and destitute I have, I have nothing. And how many people are there not to deal with in a situation?
How many people today in the world, not even in the world, in our city, in our town?
The town that we live in?
How many of us really take care of those people.
allows Muhammad Allah, it's like a person, you know, who loses his job when many people lose their jobs nowadays.
So he is unemployed, unemployed for one year.
Two years, three years, somebody comes to him, says, look, you know, the driver job for you?
You used to take it?
Yeah, but I'm a computer programmer. You know what, I'm gonna take the job because you know, I need to feed my family.
Even if you have to sweep the street, who has to become a laborer, but he has to do it. And many people have done it. Many people have taken them up again from right from the bottom up. SubhanAllah. Why? Because I'd appreciated the visit, which allows for 100 given to them through that kind of work.
And what is the NaVi salsa website?
a person who works, doesn't matter what he does, he works a lot harder.
And care to have Ebola and Cassie, have Ebola. The worker the hard worker is a beloved of a law.
person who works very hard for his most beloved of our laws Hunter. Allah says Allah loves him. But what do we say? Oh, in the manual fix fixes the dead we say, fellas, man, we even give him his
own labor. Somebody who, who may be a cop out of personal adoption with to park your car, or somebody who's whatever. We look down upon those people, but those people are the most dignified people. They are honored by our laws. heinola Why? Because they working?
Thank you working are they not loafing or being they working? And even those who beg? We shouldn't even look down upon them because Allah Allah says in the Quran, who must you give to? You must give Lisa 11 room you must give to those who ask and also those who don't ask.
So you can't say big must give him an X and he will go with x
Given 20,000 nas to start a business, you can give him an extra 20 profits or sell them CDs, you know, give him an X. That's a literal meaning but it doesn't really mean that.
So, hard work
is Beloved, in the eyes of Allah. So if you are unemployed and you do something which is 10 grades below what you're doing remember Allah loves you, the people that people say what they want to say about you, whatever, but you're doing halaal reason. And of course, Allah sonatas if you come to Allah crawling Allah will come to you walking if you come to Allah walking Hello Come to running, if you come to Allah, Allah will come to you like,
So if we make the effort allows you to put in the Baraka. There are many examples that I can give. So people who do hard work, honorable knows. So this is what most asked for anything, Allah, anything, give me whatever you want me to do, I will do it. I am a prince. I come from a palace. And I'm a prophet, but that's beside the point. Me and you'd have said, y'all know you made me a prophet.
Cindy, some food from heaven. I mean, I need most of them say
cab drivers laborers are good people.
So most artists are
asked the last panel for this.
And he says he Allah. If you can't give me anything, then give me the opportunity to be good to other people. Even in the state that I have. Now, many people are there. They need but they'll give it to you. It is their time and they say okay, man, I'll leave that I'll help you. Nevermind, that appointment out. I'll cancel that. But Allah says to
their people, I get lots of people like that.
So we asked a lot how to him good.
So these two girls that helped with a sheep, that goat they had gone home by the time
and they had gone home and their father asked him his oratorical contest you can read it.
They say the falsity you only normally you come home much, much later what happened today. They said, well, there was a man. And he helped us to water our animals. And, of course, the father asked the first question, What did he want? What did he ask you? for nothing? Was it really anything if he gave our animals water anyone to sit in the shade that we saw him last? And we saw it making the I was raising his hands and he was he was making law? So the father was very interested for us in bringing previous men Who's this man and allowed to undescribed now Los Angeles says the two girls came to him and say to him, our father wants to speak to you say, What is the answer?
So this is Lee Jessica. He wants to he wants to pay you for what you did. He feels You did a good deed and he wants to pay.
I don't want to get paid. That's not why I came. That's not why I did this to you not for payment. This was out of the goodness of my heart. I wanted to help you.
So when the girls asked him a normal response would have been okay. No, thank you. You know, it's fine. Tell her that it's okay. You know, don't worry, don't worry. You know, I did it for a last minute Allah it's fine. That's a normal reaction. But Moosa thought well, I just made the raw to allows for higher metalla to, to help to assist me maybe this is the assistance which are given to me. So many times we ask Allah for something, and then somebody comes and says, brother, based on the faces, no treatment, don't worry, man.
That's the answer from Allah. Allah, I'm gonna send him to offer you help. Don't turn with the help which Allah sends to you because of your
Or maybe it's from a poor man, from a poor man who comes in and says, Would you actually need a job following
the seminar? No, no, no, that's fine. Meanwhile, he's got nothing. Moosa didn't say that moods are related to the help of a law. He made the law da in the outlets in the help
and so we must take me up which Allah was Rihanna autolysin.
We have all these human beings have this cortical leaf.
This recitation when you ask me a
mistake word allows partner gives.
So, allows mahalo Tyler then
In the Quran,
by the Salah kariba the only way my servant asks about me Tell him I'm near to Him. And Musa knew that because Moses spoke to our last panel Tana.
I was telling the brothers last week after every when I'm here after the word salad and I read the Hadith to the brother so one of the Hadith which I read was
narrated by a Buddha
and accorded by Muslim
were in the Navy Salam said when a brother makes to offer another brother or for another sister or for whatever you make to offer somebody in that person's absence. So somebody says to you, you know, make the offer me or he doesn't even say make the offer you just begging to are you thinking about him and you say Allah, I know that person needs a job to help him to have a job I know that person is sick. He mentioned his name and say Allah help him you know gave him Schiphol.
person is not there person doesn't know you make into athlete. What happens?
What happens when you do that?
The Navy sasaram says, there is a special Angel
al Malik al moussaka, Al Malik al moussaka, an appointed Angel, not another human being a mannequin Angel, Allah created, Allah created an angel specially for this for those people who make the offer other people so panela so if you like to ask your brother, Allah has created a special Angel for you to do what
to say. I mean, when you make the DA and to say to you, well, that can be Mifflin.
He says, Armenia Allah and give him the same that he asked for Islam.
So every time you make dua for your brother,
If you say Allah is gay without your brother? What happened? What is Malak? Say? Allah making healthy Also, if you ask your brother What is the balance say Allah
So I read the story afterwards. I mean, it just may. I hope I happen to read this afterwards. It's a bit of Ramadan humor.
So there was this man
who was heard this hadith of an evisa salah
and one of his friends had asked him, please will you make to offer me and I'm looking for a good wife.
So make the offer me so young man. So he wasn't married young man. So please, you know, please renew McDormand.
So we know that there are two times when the law is accepted by our last panel in the month of Ramadan. Well throughout the year, in the month of Ramadan, there is one time that the Prophet mentioned where if you make do at that time,
the heavens open electives. That is just before you break your fast, just before you break your past, whatever you ask Allah at that moment,
they have antelope.
The other time is just before fudger in the morning.
And that is the whole year through Ramadan houses of Ramadan before and we know that maybe outside of Ramadan, it's a bit difficult to get up late, what cetera et cetera. But in Ramadan, you have no excuse to make dua to Allah.
Allah, Allah descends down to the first heaven at that time of the night in Allah ask who is there that wants anything from me, I will give it to him, Who is there that once forgiveness, I will forgive him.
So this man,
he was sitting by his table.
And his wife was busy in the kitchen. Kitchen is just a lease. Wife is busy there. And he's sitting here.
And he told his wife about the Hadith that I read in the after the, by the fact that you know, you get the same as you offer somebody else. So he puts up his density, our law, you know, bless my wife, and my children and my reserve can give me health and so forth and so forth. And he realized that his brother asked him to make dua for a good wife. So he said, Yeah, Allah and give so and so, you know, give him a good wife. So he was sitting like this with his eyes to see Allah mentioned the main activity, and then he got a hang of a snack. His wife gave me one shot.
he said, Daddy move. I mean, this is the time you know, that's the problem. That's the problem. You told me that whatever you ask for Allah will give you the same
I know some of you are fasting. So some of you didn't catch it yet, but maybe,
hopefully by the time you get it
and I wasn't and I always I know we're talking about Dr. And the importance of drama.
So remember, it's at the time of the star and the time
asked me anything.
Any of you asked it any other time, our loss handler will also we will do. And I always like to tell the story, a personal story. And I like to tell the story in public because it involves a man that probably most of you know his name is Mohammad Reza.
Razak used to come to Cape Town a lot. And he used to give lectures or over a loss on the ground in general,
was a good man.
I was studying in Cairo in the 70s, early 70s.
And most of you know, the story said the very story, but it's a good story. I'm not like zoom, I don't tell bad stories.
So it was 1973, I was in Cairo with my wife who just gave my wife just given birth to, to my eldest daughter. And they would accept the war brokered between Egypt and Israel. And so what happens is, everything shuts down.
So, and there was no communication, of course, between South Africa and Egypt, you know, South Africa, people had not wanted nothing to do with the South Africans, just like now with data.
So I used to get my money used to come from Cape Town, in order postal order, is to go to London and from London used to come
to Egypt to Egypt closer to the post office, no connection.
And, you know, it was a, it was a war, which one of the few wars that the Arabs one at that time, they said that was in power, and they cross the Suez Canal and they blasted all the
encampments of the of the Israelis, and they took back they took back the Sinai desert.
But so after about after a month, no money came.
And no money. No money came. So I was, I know nothing. I knew nobody to ask. Nobody was. So this was the night before I read.
We foster the month of Ramadan, Labyrinth, and I say to my wife, you know what? I've had no money.
She's dammit you have nothing? Maybe few places.
See what you're going to do. I said, Well, what can we do? You know, we have to make the ARV. So let's make Torah kasana ask Allah Allah after all, you know that the night of read is is a very, very early night. And of course, we had a baby so that also so of course she made to rock a tsunami.
And we started crying, you know, young so we think about home. Luna Santa Barbara, stay. Were talking about all the good things happening in Cape Town was lebara. Anyway, so
after a while.
We came across somebody knocked on the door. I said, Man, we don't get visitors we ever get visitors.
Because we living in a place called seda. Xena. Xena was like born evil without the crime.
boente ever without the crime Subhanallah very poor area. Very nice area. No crime.
Nobody. I did it today. But nobody would touch you could walk in the middle of the night. Nobody would touch you alive
at that time. So knock on the door. I opened the doors one of the Reza murasaki
the first time he visits me is never been to get to my place is extremely difficult. I lived on the third floor. The three storey building, I lived on the third floor in a tenement.
So I saw shocks upon omashola. He said, Come on, come inside. Sit down.
We had tea. So
we don't have to show that we didn't have anything. That was me. And we were together. So we serve a lot of highs to visit him at his house. But I was really surprised to see him. I mean, you know.
So he said for about half an hour and then he gets up and he goes to the door. And he turns around and he did a little study about to buy to study just at the door. He goes into the study and he comes out pretty quickly and he leaves
and at the end of the study there's an armful of lying on the table and it opened Omnibus 20 pounds a novela
safarnama now, not only it wasn't about the 20 pounds, it is in the formula 20 pounds in 1973 in Cairo was a lot of money. That was my monthly rent, I paid 20 pounds rent a month.
And so you know, I will never forget that. And I'm sure if it happened to you, and we have all these experiences in life.
And from that day, up to now, whenever I see people who need, I don't ask, Are you drunk? Are you on drugs? Why you look at No.
I always think about the day when I put up my hands and Allah helped me what he What if? What if that man who's searching or resenting me ask Allah to help him? And allow him to Allah wants me to do it? And I don't do it?
What kind of Alhamdulillah is that to say? What kind of things is that to do? And Allah gives us every single day, not necessarily the way Allah gave to me at the time, but Allah gives us an allowance is our prayers. And so when we see other people who are down and out, and my family gets very upset with me about this, but I say when I when I judge, and people ask me a lot of times, who do I give my czaka to?
Who do I give my socket?
Because we were very judgmental. Vamos a Cockney, second utensil, a kabocha and
a vacant skinny, he's not working but you know a challenge rod so he must have money.
I always say, you make the judgment call.
Allah will accept from you when you give to anybody, provided you made that decision.
To see somebody and you know the background of the person you say.
The wife shouts and the brother says,
You made the judgment call, no matter who it is. And it happened in the time of the Navy's awesome
Elisa to Salaam the men gave his a car to a prostitute
and the people who were there on him so he gave us a cartoon
so after he gave his account to the prostitute, the people can say brother
sorry man, you know there's a bad woman you gave her a cut of the wrong person say went to the Navy so Solomon said Dr. rasulillah I gave my soccer to such to such and such a purse
is it accepted or should I give more soccer to somebody else well the signal
may allow sounds are given up from that Baraka money from that pure money that money which you gave on behalf of Allah Allah may change into a good omen
so it is not the money that you give by the intention you give it to us.
So you have a brother
who's got a house he's got a car but he lost his job
or you know is in difficulty
krakowska dogs know you know the band situation you know the managing difficulty or you have somebody who's uh, who's got a business you know he's in trouble you know, your your business friend is in deep trouble it's got a big business and it's got cars and isn't everything but you know that he needs it the car maybe that you can give him
and you must make that call. It's not about whether he's rich or poor. Last one, the eight categories that Allah mentioned in the Quran about Sokka does not include rich people. In fact, Allah mentions one category which
in fact talks or says that you must give to the data the person who's in debt, so you know the person is in debt you say that a movie blacklist
or let him lose his house or nothing news? No, no. should go and say brother I know you know you're in trouble. You may lose your house
So that was the day of musasa to Salah yeah Allah give me what you want to give me but give me also opportunities to do good samaritan laws 5 million this month of Ramadan inshallah, give us opportunities to do good lord Allah Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
