My dear brothers in Islam is Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa Taala. burqa.
thanks and praise goes to allow panatela
we put Salawat and Salaam and our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
and extend our sincerest thanks to our Lowe's panatela for having given us again the opportunity of being present
on this beautiful morning of April of ha The morning of sacrifice today that we sacrifice
for the sake of our last panel Donald's finances as I quoted, is a foreign Ludhiana. Lola her new home will have Allah de Maha. What are Kenyan Allahu takamaka?
Allah says that allows Han Allah is not interested in the meat and the bones in the flesh in the blood of the animals. allows for $100 interested in your taqwa.
What does this mean? What does it mean? Allah says
that is interested in your
Not only do we have relationships with one another,
we have relationships with nature.
We have relationship with Allah subhanaw taala
we have a relationship with our Deen
we have relationship with material and non material entities.
And the Quran teaches us all about relationships.
The author of the corbon
the relationship we should have with the animal world.
How we should treat the animal world
and why we should treat them as we treat them.
Because they provide for us sustenance without which we cannot live.
So Allah Allah tells us that that the animal that you slaughter is sustenance for you. A loss on doesn't need the meat of the animal.
The relationship you have with the animal is it provide sustenance for you so that you can make a burrito last.
But what is your relationship with allows
our relationship with allows for hamdallah ease. While a Kenyan Aloo taco means
our relationship with allows fontelo is that allows for the law once us
through the sacrifice of either sacrifice, or by means of the sacrifice, to become more conscious of a loss.
To realize the centrality of Allah in our lives.
I know in a level we live in a very materialistic world.
But I can tell you in my lifetime I've seen
the nullity of materialism.
I've seen the rich people become poor overnight.
I've seen very rich people die in leaving everything behind every single thing they've done.
I've seen how people rush after the dunya and then they gone.
And you think if only that person would spend more time with the deed of Allah just maybe another 10 minutes of his life.
Only that person had been in the masjid maybe just once or twice more than he is for the tour needs. That person spend maybe an hour in a week to learn the deen of Allah if only and then the time comes when we can't anymore.
The time comes when you can't when you old, decrepit.
When you can't walk and you can't talk, we don't have the energy to do what you want to do.
So everything is about relationships. This whole area is about relationships. It's about our relationship with the laws.
And the great sacrifice that he made with his smile was about relationships. It was about his relationship with allows peloton
It was about his son's relationship with a loss
and so we have relationship with our children.
And what do we say about our children? What is our relationship with our children?
Our relationship with our children is that we want the best for our children.
Everything we want we live and die for
We shouldn't be of course, but parents we do that.
And we give them everything and what do we say at the end?
Once we've given them whatever we've given them, what do we say we say, I trust that he will do the right thing.
So in relationship there is trust.
Without trust, there is no relationship ask any man who's married to a woman, and the marriage breaks up. The first thing is the wife will say,
there is no more trust. And there is no more trust, there is no more love. And if there is no more love, there is no more relationship.
In the relationship NaVi Brahim had with a last fall Nutella, there was love and there was trust.
There was love and there was trust. And because there was love, and there was trust, when a lot of foreigners say to him,
oh my god, I want you to sacrifice your only son for me.
And you know, when you have trust, and you have love, you have what?
You have sacrifice.
You can make that sacrifice. Because you're making a sacrifice, because you're making it like you're making a sacrifice for your children. I mean, you work for them, isn't it,
you strive to get up five o'clock, six o'clock in the morning.
You watch your investments,
you watch your own health, so that you can live maybe a little bit longer to look after them.
And you make all kinds of sacrifices. So now before I even allow for the lead this relationship, a relationship of love, a relationship of trust, and finally,
on based on trust and love, one can make that final sacrifice for the beloved.
So people say it's my wife, I'm prepared to spend millions. So that allows me give a health for my husband, no matter what it is, no matter what it takes. Whatever is required, I will do it. Don't worry, I will do it.
That is Lubbock, Texas based on love. And so in our last one that I said to Nabil Brahim, take your son and sacrifice him.
What is the son say what was the son's relationship, because sometimes the Father has a relationship with Allah, but the children has no relationship with Allah.
So when the father says to the son makes Salah, he says, tomorrow, I'm busy, because the son doesn't have that relationship. But in this particular case, there was a synergy between father and son and Allah.
And so in the command came, what is a Sensei, he said, If I will merge certegy dooney in sha Allah municipally. He said, All my father
knew as you are commanded to do,
do as you are commanded to do, and you will find any of those will be patient under the command of our laws.
So when we look at that sacrifice, think about that relationship. Think about the smile. When you look at your bond. Think about Nabi Brahim, think about the relationship of trust paired with each other. And so the whole world I mean the environment is a trust from Allah.
The fact that you recycle is a trust from Allah.
That is your relationship with with the dunya which are like given to you. Your health is a trust from a law.
So your money is a trust from allows for higher return. And it's only those who trust in Allah ultimately will reach the final goal which is gender.
And we know the famous Hadith in Bukhari narrated Abdullah Abbas the cousin of the Navy salatu salam. When gibreel showed the navies of Salaam they said was on Mirage
jabril show the Navy Salalah Salaam, all the Gambia and the followers of Gambia
so whenever he would come to us with 50 followers
let me know how preach to his oma for 950 years
how big using his own eyes will be out how big do you think is your eyes and if not more than 80 people that we know who will come with ATP Subhana Allah either that is your grandma's one person suddenly will walk alone
and then ABC Judy What about my own movies my own sensibilities a team look there in the distance days Yama and Avi saw some saw a black you know and a lot of people you just have a black cloud
And Julian Assange said Mashallah is that he said yes that is that's your that's your
big mess of people like you
and in front, the least
Members of your oma is 80,000 in front walking in front 80,000 people is walking in front.
And jabril said those 80,000 people over Hamas Allah, walking in front will enter Jannah without Allah asking them a single question.
Isn't that the big fear? I have that big fear? biggest fear in my life is what am I gonna say? How am I gonna answer?
First of all, look at me.
Then what is he going to ask me?
When he asked me one question,
two questions 10 questions.
He didn't ask me about that time. You know that time when I did that, he's going to ask me about that. When I thought nobody saw me doing it.
As they accepted my Toba
is another 6 billion people standing around me am I really going to be so important? I will have to do something in this dunya to
to stand out somehow somehow to catch the attention of Karnataka.
lcrs yo jabril so what is special about that 80,000 people that they will not be asked a question. Not a question. They don't understand in the sun for for all 10,000 years. No, they're not taken to be go to the they will be separated and they will go say to Jenna Subhana Allah we are lost on the ground has to be the 80,000 people.
So let me say Salaam as to why.
What is special about them.
When Annalisa salon came to this part of narrating the heartbeat of hava, this happened in the masjid. And he got up and he went home.
And there's a haba amongst themselves were discussing amongst themselves wonder who those 80,000 people will be. And of course a lot of them agreed that they will they are the muhajirs and the people who made the giraffe from Mecca to Medina. And they said no, they are the people who have fought it all the battles and motherhood or they said that they were the people who made Salah others say they were the people who did good by a lot of charity etc, etc. So eventually nerissa salam came out and he said awesome, are you to discuss it in they said we talking about who are those 80,000 people that will intergender with actually sad and will hug without their cup. So, the
Navy solid said they will have three qualities
like is that
what I thought a while
the first two qualities or qualities, upon which the last one depends, the first two qualities deals with
things which are still happening today. And that is
that Mr. Salim said those are the people who did not turn away from Allah subhanaw taala. Maybe in their darkest moment, they didn't turn away meaning what and Allah describes on processes what they do, for example, they go to, they go to what we call, maybe they do come or they go to the P or they go to the shear last harpoon and they asked him, Do this for me you do that for me, you do that for me while I thought your own and they don't go and ask somebody to read the fortune for them, or to heal them or to do. And the final one is
why Allah Allah He atelocollagen they put the total trust in Allah subhanaw taala.
So trust is very, very important with us and the last parameter, that is my relationship with Allah, that is your relationship with Allah, we have to put our trust in Allah subhanaw taala.
When it comes to the future, whether it's coming with to our children, when it comes to ISIS, when it comes to Syria, when it comes to the refugees, flooding Europe, whatever it may be, we need to learn that there is an alarm that guides and monitors not only every individual, but every nation, every person, every newborn, every fish in the sea, everything that happens, every millisecond of the day is closely monitored by our laws.
And we you must say Yeah, but you know, you can say that you can say that, you know, you just talking
but you can verify this by going back in history and looking at the march of history. And when you read history, and you will read the march of Easter you will understand and become aware of divine intervention in the lives of men.
Say Allah intervenes, by the way is the proof. The proof lies in the past. The proof lies in Allah intervene in the life of Mohammed Salah, after Mohammed Salah la Salah, the intervention is in the Quran, the interventions in your life.
When we give you a small example,
I say to you, I think in the Java one day that, you know, I'd like to say we like to send money to
the people of Syria, maybe two, three people of Yemen, particularly, I was interested in sending money to the people of Yemen.
And I know there are lots of organizations that proclaim, to say that, yes, we can make corbon in Yemen, or in Syria, wherever we'll save money there. But I'm always skeptical, you know, because, for my own reasons, I'm skeptical.
But I really wanted this year to do something. Because there are more than, I think, a half a million children in Yemen, who will not will be stunted in the growth because they don't have enough to eat. They starvation, abject starvation in Yemen.
And of course, in Mozambique, and in Malawi, and all these places.
But I wanted
to save my money or whatever I was going to give knowing that it was going to reach the people it had to reach without any deductions. That's a tall order, isn't it? Unless you go personally fly there. And you know what I said, y'all love Please show me a way to do this.
For us another toll road, you know, say, Alabama, you know, I I'm not a rich man. But what I have, I'd like this money to go to the people of Yemen, please show me a way that I can get this money to Yemen,
if I should give it to the Saudi pilot with bombs, maybe drop it into put it in the bomb of Panama. But neither is it may. So eventually what happened.
My I have a daughter in Qatar. So I said to you know,
I'd like to send some money to to Yemen, which is odd. I just went to the suit to the mall. And I saw that there are these
tables, the potter is Qatar. Charity is a massive organization.
And you can actually do corbon via them.
And you can also send money via them. But she says we've got a friend in Yemen, a girl that studied with us in Malaysia, she's in Yemen. And she is when she coordinates the distribution of funds in Yemen.
Unless it's behind Allah.
So there was the way opened.
And they I could give them anything Marshall, I know the person is going to I know the person that's involved in the mandible going there. And it is so important for us even today when we think about that.
And this is open Of course for all of you, I can I'm not going to take any commission.
And luckily it works with receipts and all that kind of you know, I'm a man that likes to deal with money. I started an organization that now distributes 100 million, more than 100 million Rand of Zakah in South Africa. And I've always never been the one to handle the money. I always handled the transparency of the money
I'm a stickler for that we take money from people, you must be able to tell them what you did with the money no matter how big your beard is, or your quarter.
If you can't do that for me, then I don't trust you. No matter what you sing for me. No matter the song you sing for me doesn't mean that if you put the advert in green color on my magic notice board and you don't and you refuse to give us your annual financial statements you don't get a cent from me
I'm sorry. Why not? Because unless I'm gonna ask you unless gonna ask me like you gave this money and you knew what is getting dark, deep dark hole and you still gave it and you said you're giving it to me and you made no attempt at all to find out whether it's actually coming to me or not
imagine allows for Anantara
drops manna from heaven
and he only drops it on the Jews for example.
And he says why you didn't run fast enough it was made for you but you know I can't look up Subhanallah you every one of us as to make sure that when you give at least to these charities or collect so much in this quarter Barney's and make so much money it's become a business again out of our souls and not become a business.
I know that leads you know has become a business. Ramadan has become a business. Now Hodges now I prefer the highest the day of the highest Avada today when we have to connect with a lot so handleless wants to become a business. You know what
why can we use other times to raise funds? Why do we have to use Allah? Why do we have to use hello to make money? Why do we have to use Hajj to make money? Why do we have to use our offer to make money? What is happening to us? Well, that is why the barricades are that we do nothing if there's no money involved.
I'm over my time, 16 minutes, I said I was gonna finish by eight o'clock, which of course would have been impossible.
I want to just finally say to you
and of course that's the responsibility of leadership.
Leadership of organizations
that don't start an organization to turn it into a money spinner.
Because it's not about how much you collect. It's about how you collect it's about how you distribute
