Assalamualaikum and a very warm welcome to the philosophy of fasting Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. All praise is due to Allah, peace and blessings be upon Muhammad, the last prophet and messenger of Allah. As always, it's my ultimate pleasure to have in the studio, Dr. Hatha mylol Dad, salaam alaikum. Doctor why they consider

00:01:11--> 00:01:27

thank you for joining us in the studio today does that well, Doctor, I want to take this episode to talk about a car and the the virtues and the values of this magnificent word and attribute to Allah

00:01:29--> 00:01:33

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

see once we talk about Zika

00:01:38--> 00:02:11

we must talk about a charity in general right and Zika I doubt that we will have time to discuss the issue of Zika but Inshallah, when we have time at least we will touch a little bit upon the QA and then we can move to the cattle photo because we are coming to the end of the month of Ramadan. Yes. However, one of the very virtuous acts that we need to encourage we need to do more during the month of Ramadan is giving sadaqa giving a charity in general.

00:02:13--> 00:02:47

You know, in Hadith, Abbas Radi Allahu Allah and hope that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to be a very generous person and he used to be more generous during the month of Ramadan when he meets Gibreel. And he studies the Quran, when with Jubilee out of the Allahu Tada. And so the Quran affects the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Prophet SAW Selim, as a result of this becomes more generous, yes, during the month of Ramadan, although he is a generous person, in all the times

00:02:48--> 00:02:52

he sadaqa sadaqa is a very virtuous act.

00:02:54--> 00:03:31

Ramadan, probably Allah Allah Han who once said that the good deeds came together to compete. And so the car came the first, right sadhaka giving charity came the first. In fact, we read many verses in the Quran that talks about the importance of sadaqa and the virtues on sadaqa. Set up sadaqa is just a specific act of charity, generally, a charity and giving is one of the foundations of the Islamic system, Islamic financial system.

00:03:32--> 00:03:45

And that's why you know, when you read the Quran, and in particular Surah Al Baqarah. Yes, that included so many concepts of many systems.

00:03:46--> 00:04:12

They talk about so many systems and the main concepts of those systems, the political system, the social system, and also economy from an Islamic perspective. We see that Allah, Allah Allah spoke about the charity before speaking about the prohibition of riba right, in almost 13 verses in the Quran, Allah, Allah Allah spoke about a charity

00:04:13--> 00:04:58

men the lady Yoko Bula Autobahn has an enviable life a hula hoop of life and cathedral Allah who will be all the way up so why are they who took down and those Ayat let's talk about giving a charity man the lady who is who is lending Allah Allah Allah Allah. Allah amount of money money called 100 and Allah Allah Allah as a result will increase it will increase it up to 700 times. And also in those ayat Allah, Allah Allah says Allah the name for Kona and wider homebuilt lately when I heard he said what I learned yet and further home I don't know him ended up being what I hope one day him well at home he has no Allah, Allah Allah also says I will move on to higher ramen so the

00:04:58--> 00:04:58

Catania Tibet.

00:05:01--> 00:05:10

Hold on that often was a good way of responding to the poor person if you do not have money or sadaqa right is better

00:05:12--> 00:05:34

than outside the cup followed by annoying words. And then Allah, Allah Allah also says a che upon we do como *a Walla who you do not feel rotten minha Fabula even Abbas Radi Allahu Allah, Allah and who said that the Shavon promises you two things and Allah promises you of other two things are shaytaan

00:05:36--> 00:05:41

he promises you what? Poverty, he's warning you of poverty.

00:05:43--> 00:05:44

A Sherpa.

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

And, and and, and also the shape on

00:05:51--> 00:06:26

he is warning you as He is promising you of reducing the money. Yes, but Allah, Allah Allah promises you what mellifera 10 Min who have Ebola two other things in response to what the shaman is promising you. Which is the forgiveness of Allah Allah Allah Allah and for them and surplus or you can say excessive amount of return. When you trade with Allah, Allah Allah. So all of these ayat I advise our brothers and sisters to read those ayat.

00:06:28--> 00:06:46

So those ayat Allah, Allah Allah mentioned to them before Allah Allah Allah Allah started to speak about the prohibition of riba under the name Karuna riba Omona Hola, como como Lydia TakaToshi upon minimis until the end of those if that you spoke about riba you can say,

00:06:47--> 00:06:58

from verse 261, until the end of Surah, Al Baqarah, Allah, Allah Allah explained the basics of the Islamic financial system.

00:06:59--> 00:08:00

And that is the that system is based, first of all, not on prohibition of riba but it's based on charity and the role of a charity the role of giving the role of generosity in the economical or in the financial systems, which means that if we want to build an a stable financial system, we should focus more on giving Alia earlier, the upper hand that gives more than the prohibition of riba and many people went to when they talk about the financial audit the Islamic financial system, they immediately jump into the prohibition of riba which is wrong, definitely, which is wrong, because the prohibition of riba might not operate well, if the foundation is not there, and the foundation

00:08:00--> 00:08:22

is what the surplus that is provided by what by a charity work, and the charity work is not the pocket money that you have, or the change that you have you, you give it to a poor person to get rid of it. No, it charity is a perception where people contribute financially towards the welfare system.

00:08:23--> 00:09:13

It includes so the car includes the car, it includes endowment, and works trusts, having trust all of these systems are all of these activities, build the Islamic financial systems and then we will come to the prohibition of riba so this is a charity in general, of course, that's why the prophets Allah iclm used to encourage a charity, the prophesy Selim himself was a very charitable person, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam, even when he came to Medina, the Hadith that we mentioned later the first statement, the Hadith that we mentioned earlier, the first statement, he said, I Yohannes of Shu salaam stablished, Salam spreads and among yourselves and up a motor arm

00:09:13--> 00:09:42

spread food, spread food means give people be charitable, okay. So, this is this is the spirit, the the philosophy of a charity. Now, sadaqa in particular sadaqa which is giving any amount of money whether big or small, you can say it is an element of a charity or you can say it is same as a charity. However, you look at it

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

sadaqa sadaqa, if you understand it as it is, it is giving a small amount of money or giving any amount of money to poor people to needy people, is a very virtuous

00:10:00--> 00:10:00

act

00:10:01--> 00:10:12

other than those that that we mentioned Mandela do karula Carbon Hashanah, Allah Allah Allah Allah considered it as what you are giving Allah alone.

00:10:14--> 00:11:08

You are giving Allah loan and as a result, Allahu wa Jalla wa Ala will multiply it by 700 times and this reminds us of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam that whenever you give sadaqa from a pure from a halal income, yes. And Allah does not accept accept a halal income. Allah does not accept any income other than the halal income. Allah, Allah Allah will look after it. And Allah Allah Allah will raise it up and grow it for you. As you raise up your what? You the small horse What is this one horse called? The pony? The pony? Yes. Okay. No, no, the small horse the son of the horse, not the small horse. The small size horse No, the son of the young

00:11:08--> 00:11:37

horse. You call it a pony or horse? I'm not sure. Okay, what's your point? Yes, anyway, so Allah Allah, Allah, Allah will take it and raise it up as you look after the young course the pony until it grows up. In one narration. Allah Allah Allah, Allah says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said that Allah will increase it as it becomes like a mountain, right? In one narration, as it becomes a like the mountain of

00:11:39--> 00:12:06

you know, the mountain of water, they said is three kilometers by 15 kilometers, by giving an amount of charity Listen, my dear respect to the brothers and sisters, by giving an amount of a charity Allah, Allah Allah will raise it for you increase it for you grow it up for you, until it becomes like a big mountain definitely, this is what this is one of the virtues of sadaqa

00:12:07--> 00:12:39

and other than those ayat that we have mentioned, there are a number of ayat that talk about the obligatory CIDOC which is Zika and the non obligatory so the COVID which is the normal a charity, the obligatory Zakah used to be mentioned or is mentioned normally in the Quran, along when Salah is mentioned along with Salah Subhanallah karma Salah Eater is always mentioned together the

00:12:40--> 00:13:03

the voluntarily Sadako is a very virtuous act that has been mentioned numerous times in the Quran. I think we are running out yes time they tell him that earpiece that's all we have time for right now in this part Dr. Stay tuned we're just going to take a quick break. See you soon as salaam alaikum welcome my dad

00:13:05--> 00:13:06

Oh my

Oh my

00:13:16--> 00:13:17

god.

00:13:19--> 00:13:53

I'm really cool. Assalamualaikum and very warm. Welcome back to the philosophy of fasting. As you know took this time to talk about sadaqa and everything before the break. Doctor before the break we were discussing, obviously the the foundations of giving charity. I have many questions for you. I hope you don't mind spending this time with me answering them. One of the questions I want to start by asking is okay, Muslims give charity. Christians give charity. So what is the unique difference?

00:13:54--> 00:13:57

Smilla Rahmanir Rahim o salat wa salam ala Rasulillah

00:13:58--> 00:14:02

we as Muslims give a charity because of Allah.

00:14:04--> 00:14:24

Okay, because we want to avoid the anger of Allah. Yes, by withholding and not giving charity, because we want to get the highest place in Ghana, right? This is the main purpose. And then after that, because we want to help others again because of Allah.

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

And so, all our acts are linked to our belief in Allah Dilwara billing to to heat and all of them are linked to our belief in the hereafter. Yes. And that's why Allah Allah Allah mentioned us so many benefits of a charity in the era before even the benefits of charity in the dunya SubhanAllah. Okay, yeah. And and see, as we said that giving

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

sadaqa is a very virtuous activity that has been mentioned in the Quran in numerous times. The obligatory one was mentioned along with Zika, with Salah and it is considered to be Zika. And the voluntary one was mentioned in your Ross places. For example, Allah Allah Allah Allah says, Yeah, you Hello, I'm Anna lateral Hichem Amar LUCAM Hola. Hola. DuCommun Vicky de la Romania. Daddy Kapha Hola, como la Sharon. And then Allah Allah Allah says, were unfaithful. Mean Cordelia yet yeah. Docomo note, Fe Akula. Rob Biloela. Courtney Illa. Again in Corrib. For us, sadaqa akumina Salahaddin. This is SubhanAllah. Very amazing. Yes. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah says, your children

00:15:46--> 00:16:04

your wealth should not stop you from remembering Allah, Allah, Allah Allah and should not divert you from remembering Allah, Allah Allah, if you do so, you are the losers, the losers in the dunya and the losers in the ACA. And then Allah, Allah, Allah says, spend I'm fearful

00:16:05--> 00:16:50

and fearful we spend before the time of death comes, see how Allah Angelou Anna motivates us is not just because of the dunya but because of the ACA. So spend for the sake of Allah, Allah, Allah, before the time of death comes, look what when the time of death comes to the person, what will be the first thing he would ask Allah, Allah Allah to do? What is the first thing he will not say? Oh Allah delay me so I can go and make more salah or are Allah delay death a little bit so I can go and do Hajj? Yes. What he said, Allah, Allah Allah mentioned it, of course,

00:16:51--> 00:16:52

mean calmly and yell at

00:16:55--> 00:16:57

me just delay me a little bit.

00:16:58--> 00:16:59

In our agenda, including

00:17:00--> 00:17:27

the first thing I will do, frosted duck, yes, I will give sadaqa we chose that sadaqa is something that we that can be given quickly, the reward of it is very quick. The reward to fit is very huge, and is granted as well. SubhanAllah. Doctor, I want to ask you another question about you know, the virtues. Are there any other virtues of sadaqa?

00:17:28--> 00:18:15

Yes, there are. So many virtues of giving sadaqa so many virtues. We mentioned the Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that Allah takes the Sadhak of the person in his right hand Allah Allah Allah increases it until it becomes like a mountain. This is one Hadith there is the other Hadith where the Prophet sallahu wa sallam said that the sadaqa will never decrease the wealth of the person. Yes, this is the Hadith in Bukhari, in one narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said In fact, it increases your wealth. And see we just read a che parlano Yeah, a Docomo *up why Moroccan Bill fascia, the shape on promises you poverty, because it will reduce your

00:18:16--> 00:18:45

it will reduce your wealth and he commands you to do bad things. And Allah and Allah Allah is promising you forgiveness, or the day of resurrection and Fabula increase. Because in fact, there is a Hadith, very amazing Hadith that the prophets Allah I said, I've said every single day to angels come, one of them is making dua O Allah, O Allah, give increased to the one who gives

00:18:47--> 00:18:58

or Allah gives give increase to the one who gives yes and all Allah give destruction or decrease to the one who withholds.

00:19:00--> 00:19:17

So, the sadhaka increases your wealth, so that puts Baraka in your world. However, we are not giving sadaqa or their car, because we won't increase of course, our wealth in the dunya we want increase in the Ophira

00:19:18--> 00:19:51

not in the dunya. Whatever happens in the dunya yes and hamdulillah Allah, Allah Allah gave it to us. And, you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned in the very famous Hadith that seven people will be shaded by the shade of Allah when there is no shade except his shade. One of them is a person who gives sadaqa by his right hand, but he hid the sadaqa see when we spoke about sincerity, and we said to hide your good deeds, so he hinted a sadhaka

00:19:52--> 00:19:58

whereby his left hand wouldn't be aware that his right hand gifts

00:20:00--> 00:20:28

and also among the Virgie virtues of sadaqa. Is that the sadaqa will be shading the person generally speaking other than this hadith, this hadith, ochberg no and he said that I heard that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saying that l Mark, if you will the sadhaka T on the person will be shaded by his solder at the Day of Resurrection.

00:20:30--> 00:20:32

Yes, see in this hadith, there is a very,

00:20:34--> 00:20:39

very interesting story, one of the narratives of this hadith, Mulford

00:20:41--> 00:20:42

or Abu Omar said,

00:20:43--> 00:21:30

another narrator said that a boomer had used to give sadaqa on a daily basis, on a daily basis. And he never left any day without giving any sadaqa. And he said that one time I saw him carrying what carrying an onion in his in his pocket. And I said to him, What is this, an onion, he said, after I heard the hadith of Akbar, that the person will be in the shade of his sadaqa the Day of Resurrection, I will give sadaqa every day if I don't give, if I don't find any money to give sadaqa I will take anything from my home and give it

00:21:32--> 00:21:50

up to it's very interesting. We pushed on time, we only have a few more minutes to end the program. So let me just ask you the most important virtue you can think of, for sadaqa the most important virtue of sadaqa is a solder or to talk to.

00:21:52--> 00:22:07

And that's why the Prophet sallahu wa salam said to women, give sadaqa give sadaqa give sadaqa because I so many of you are I so many of the people in the Hellfire from women.

00:22:08--> 00:22:19

So the sadaqa will help the person to avoid the anger of Allah, Allah Allah, it extinguishes the anger of Allah dilute the sadaqa. So

00:22:21--> 00:22:59

and that's why I advise all brothers and sisters, whenever you have money, just give it for the cut. This is one thing, the other thing, so connect an amount of money to give it as a sadhaka be charitable, and don't count. Don't feel poverty. This is the Chapin is letting you feel this poverty. Remember that Allah is always there. And remember that this sadaqa will help you at the day when no one is helping you definitely talk to you. That's a very good point. Thank you so much. That's all we have time for right now. Thanks for joining us in the studio today.

00:23:00--> 00:23:10

Well, the viewers, brothers and sisters, that's all we have time for right now. Until next time, I'll leave you in the safe care of Allah Assalamu alaikum welcome

00:23:14--> 00:23:15

Oh man.

00:23:18--> 00:23:19
