salatu salam ala nabina Muhammad Allah Allah

00:00:18--> 00:00:21

firstly brothers and sisters As salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:24--> 00:00:35

Welcome to another session of the Quranic themes. And last week we covered the devil's approach, or how the devil approaches and comes to us because ultimately,

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

the devil wants to take us to Hellfire and Allah azza wa jal wants us to go to Geneva. He has made a very clear will La Jolla de la daddy Salam. O Allah azza wa jal says in the Holy Quran, that Allah is the one who's calling you to the abode of peace to Jana, he's the one who's calling you to that. And of course, to get to that we have to do what is what is what is written for us.

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

whatever whatever good deeds we can do, we're supposed to do that to get to Jenna. So that is in Surah, number 10. And number 25, where Lazarus tells us that he's calling us to towards Jana was about a piece. Now shaytan is in between. And what shaytan wants to do is the devil wants to make us be distracted from our purpose in this life. He wants us to be to be distracted from getting to Jana. He wants us to slip

00:01:28--> 00:01:52

and go to Hellfire with him. So today's theme is going to be one of the things that shaytan uses. I did mention very briefly last week, quite a few of the things that shaytan tries to get us into. Now. Ultimately, he's going to try and play on one of the diseases of the heart. We've got a few weaknesses, we've got to remember he's our enemy,

00:01:53--> 00:02:40

where his enemy and when you want to take down your enemy, you have to look for a weakness, you have to look for the weakness of your of your opponent. So what's our weakness, our weaknesses are the diseases of the heart which we covered earlier in the series. So for example, arrogance is a weakness, pride is a weakness, envy jealousy is a weakness. Greed is a big weakness, okay. these are these are some of the prime thinking of the heart. These are weaknesses of the human being. And shaytan is going to try and play up with this with the human being to try and make him slip into one of these emotions. And then to make him slip from the athleta slip from Jenna go with him to

00:02:40--> 00:02:44

hellfire. So with a look generally with men,

00:02:46--> 00:03:36

generally with men, they have not like certain weaknesses are more in some than others. So there's a weakness in women found more than men and the weakness in men found more than women. Okay, so we've all got weaknesses and to different degrees. So let's let's look at it like men. When you look at men, what what what are they got as a weakness more than the women? Well, men have got this boastful, proud, proud sort of, you know, attitude, which can lead to arrogance, and make them feel like another strong, the big, the mighty, that's more in men than women. In women, there's more jealousy. In women, there's more jealousy. So that's a big weakness within women that shaytan can

00:03:36--> 00:04:07

play with. And a big weakness in men is the proud, boastful attitude, trying to make them feel like you know, the better than other men, they can overpower other men, that's a weakness, he can play there. But between them both of them, there is another weakness that the shaytan can easily manipulate and use, which is greed. Okay, greed. Now this greed is to do with a lot of things in life, the human being has been created,

00:04:08--> 00:04:32

and the human being as it functions, there's two things that all of us have been doing from the beginning of our life till now. And we're going to carry on doing till the end of our lives, there's two things. One is every single one of us is looking for the benefit we can get in our lives. The benefit, and the other one thing that we're doing all of us are doing is we're trying to save ourselves from the harms in our lives.

00:04:33--> 00:04:37

Let me let me give an example of this. Okay, so from a baby, let's look from a baby.

00:04:38--> 00:05:00

A child or a baby will always want to like sort of eat as benefit. It wants to play this benefit. It wants to stay away from, let's say, doing whatever chores or things in there is as is growing, that now it wants to find as much benefit as you can, as the child grows, okay, as the child grows is going to stay with

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

From fire, it's harmful fats harmful is going to stay away from danger. Stay away from horrible people stay away from, you know, things that are going to make you be hurt. And it's going to go for those things that will give it benefit will give you pleasure. Now as you go along in life and the human is growing, we are all rotating on these two axes. All these these two things have been very, very important for us right now. Why are you Why are you working? Why are you earning money? Because you want benefit? What benefit do you get? Well, with the, with the money, you're gonna have a roof over your head, you're gonna have bills that are paid, you're gonna have food on the table, these

00:05:34--> 00:05:38

are benefits. Why are you making sure that

00:05:40--> 00:06:11

you are you are putting an alarm to your house? Why? Because you want to save save yourself from the harm of thieves. Okay? Why are you securing your money because you want to save yourself from harm of people stealing your money, and so on and so forth. You can see security internet, because the internet, right, you use the internet, it's a benefit for you. But the same time you have a virus check for it, right so that you stay away from the harms of viruses coming into your computer, anything we are doing in our lives, no matter how you look at it, we're always looking at benefits we want, and saving ourselves from harm, right? Even the long term achieve and look at the future.

00:06:11--> 00:06:43

Why are we having children because they will benefit us when we grow old? Right? Why are we having? That's one of the benefits? Why are you having what why are you investing today so that tomorrow, you're going to have extra benefit from from whatever you you've invested in whatever has brought, you know, whatever growth you've got from your from your wealth, you will benefit from it tomorrow, and you will save yourself from harm for many harms. Why are you wearing these clothes right now for because you want to save yourself from the harm of catching a cold, right? Everything is rotated between these two things. We want benefit and want to save ourselves from harm. Has everyone

00:06:43--> 00:06:46

understood that? Yes. Okay, in that

00:06:47--> 00:06:48

of trying to get benefit.

00:06:49--> 00:06:52

The shaytan knows that we woke up greed.

00:06:54--> 00:07:04

Women and men, both of us have got greed. So he's going to try and manipulate us through this greed to try and make us exceed the limits of Allah.

00:07:05--> 00:07:18

Because shaytan knows he can very easily make us do that. And what was one of the biggest greed that we have on this earth is that we have the greed of we have the greed of wealth,

00:07:20--> 00:07:49

wealth, this one thing makes us go crazy. There's a couple of things that you know, if you look at men, a lot of strong men in power, you will you'll notice a lot of strong men in power. They it's easy to take them down with two things. The FBI notice, okay, the CIA, the FBI, the big intelligence services know that any big man in power, if you want to take them down, then there's two things. You offer them, either women

00:07:51--> 00:07:52

or you offer them money.

00:07:53--> 00:08:24

One of the two, they will have a big greed for a man of greed for okay. Most of us have either right now sitting here, most of you men sitting here, most of us have either got the the greed in us, and the lust in us for women, or we've got the greed in us for money, one of the two, if not you, either, you've got both of them, or you got one of them inside you. There's only a few people who don't have that the greed for that. And the greed for these. There are men like that, who don't have that. But most of us sitting here will have that.

00:08:26--> 00:09:08

And shaytan plays on that with women. He does equally the same thing. Shaytan is he equally looks at it from the same thing. Why? Because women have got in general, I'm talking about men as well, but women as well. Women have got a lot of greed in terms of acquiring monies and acquiring wealth and the securing the future. And through that how he can make them slip is that they will they will either go for men who have money, or they themselves will be indulgent money. with men, it's worse. Because men you know from the from the times that we've known from from centuries and centuries men have been the breadwinners. So they're the primary people going outside and trying to earn money.

00:09:08--> 00:09:20

Now what shaytan does lie the lie is a shaytan wants us to earn money and money earn money and agreed increases increase increases to the extent that we become intoxicated.

00:09:21--> 00:09:59

So lasala law says in his body, he says, Yeah, your ship booboo, Adam, we she will mean whose name he says that the son of Adam, he carries he becomes older and older by the year, the son of Adam every year or every moment that is going by he's becoming older and older and is aging. But within him within the son of Adam, there's two things that as the son of Adam is getting older and older and older, within him too, things are getting younger and younger and younger and younger. Like their stuff it becomes more and more you know intense with this

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

This human being two things. One is hailstone man or two among the greed for wealth

00:10:09--> 00:10:16

and the the hope to live along the life. These two things become younger and younger by the day.

00:10:17--> 00:10:22

Okay, so as we become like you hear 40 year olds you hear 50 year olds it's like if you lay young

00:10:24--> 00:10:27

Why? Because they think they're going to live a long, long, long time.

00:10:28--> 00:10:33

Some sometimes 50 year olds 50 something year old he dies, gives it Oh, he died so young.

00:10:34--> 00:10:35

What do you mean he died young?

00:10:36--> 00:11:08

You have 50 years of life. That's a lot is a lot. He didn't die young, because they're comparing it to 70 year olds, eight year olds, that you're supposed to be 7080 by the time you die, so he died 50 he died young. No, he didn't die young. And the thing that person said in this hadith is Helsel man, is the greed for wealth. And that greed for wealth can make people go crazy. In fact, if you look at most of the biggest problems we've got today, in the world of politics and governments, it's nothing more than money.

00:11:10--> 00:11:45

Somebody's going to say now, what is he talking about? Look, I've thought about this quite deep and hard. Okay. I follow politics. I do read about it. Every single day I read about the news, I read about what's going on. And I've been doing so for four decades. I follow the news, I follow what's going on? And I'll tell you one thing, if you know, when you think deep, why did they do this? Why did they do that? Why did this country invade this country? Why did that country do this? and so on? Why isn't this country doing anything without other country? Okay, I don't want to make this a political session. But if you look at any political rival you've got in the world, most of their

00:11:45--> 00:11:47

problems boils down to money.

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

Most of their problems, bows and money.

00:11:53--> 00:11:58

Like, for example, this country, you know, this country this moment, even America at this moment,

00:12:00--> 00:12:08

even though they have a lot of problems with Saudi Arabia and what they're doing and the way they're functioning, they're not going to say anything. Why?

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

Why

00:12:12--> 00:12:16

pesa pesa? You understand? If you look at oil, it's money.

00:12:17--> 00:12:23

Right? It's money. The economy of USA economy of Britain has benefited from that.

00:12:24--> 00:12:53

Saudi and these countries now going to say about these, these Why? Because they're giving money out, they're getting weapons, they're getting other things in between. Now, there's a trade going on. Right? A lot of these countries, if you look deep inside is not about what they're saying on here. It's not about who's done what it's about the benefits they want to get from the top and it's about money. I've analyzed this across across the world, like why would why would America side with India and make it best friend? Why?

00:12:55--> 00:12:55

anyone tell me

00:12:57--> 00:12:57

Don't tell me

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

on Econ, Donna, money. India is a massive economy.

00:13:07--> 00:13:32

India in terms of its its growth is massive. And therefore it's making huge deals with what it's giving to America. And what America is getting from India. And you know, some of us might say, Well, what is it that they're getting? I'll tell you one thing you should you should read a book you should read. And even if you haven't got the time to read this book, go to the internet. And watch this video. 25 Minute Video 25 it'll open your eyes.

00:13:33--> 00:13:37

The confessions of an Economic Hitman,

00:13:38--> 00:14:14

the confessions of an Economic Hitman by john Perkins. So Perkins is p r k ins this man was a black ops specialist. So you know, you have CIA and above the CIA, you have black ops. These are your special special forces. He didn't work for the government. He worked for corporations. He worked for certain corporations. These are massive businesses. We're talking about the billions and trillions of dollars sort of corporations. And his thing is that there are 51 American corporations are running the world.

00:14:15--> 00:14:34

read his work, or just if you haven't got time to read because I know most of you haven't got time to read it. It's fine. Just go to the go to YouTube and type in their economic the confessions of an Economic Hitman. And his videos will come. And what he says in there is most of the there's two layers of politics that are going on.

00:14:35--> 00:14:48

One is the politics that we hear on the news every every day on BBC News, CNN, Sky News and whatnot. Okay, every day you hear in the news, these are this is the news they want me and you to be busy with.

00:14:49--> 00:14:54

And they'll tell us a lot of stuff in there, which really is masking the real thing that is happening.

00:14:56--> 00:15:00

Most of this stuff that tell us all so prepare Prime Minister present

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

said, if this country doesn't do, we're going to like to take the ambassador back. We're going to send the ambassador back to the country. Good luck. Most of this is drama. It's all theatrical. So drama. Okay. The real thing happening is there's a second layer of politics above this, which we don't get to see, which is the deals that during between the countries, that billions of dollars that are going from one country to another that are in a trade, the trade deals that are going along the embargoes, whatever the things that are buying from one on one cut another country, the investments are pulling be this is the real the real world. As long as those things are going good

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

between two countries, doesn't matter what's happening on the bottom level, they're not going to fight each other.

00:15:44--> 00:15:45

You think about Kashmir,

00:15:46--> 00:16:02

you think about Kashmir right now, you think about the countries that made the move the countries that said something that countries that didn't. And you can sit there anything you can think to yourself, Why Why does Muslim governments boosting government security? I'll give you a simple simple answer. Money, my friend money.

00:16:03--> 00:16:37

Every government is thinking about their own money, by the country's man is they think that if we say this, if we if we take a harsh stance, stance against that country, and what's gonna happen is tomorrow, the money is gonna stop the trades are gonna stop between this country in that country. So what john Perkins says is, these economic hitmen, these, these, these are black ops, they get hired by the corporations that get sent to countries and when they come to a country that they're told to say this, okay? They're told to say, hey, you're the you're the new prime minister, a new president of this country, I'm going to give you $200,000, this is just starters.

00:16:39--> 00:17:09

And if you allow us if you allow us to come to your country, and do some deals with trade, and this and you know, with your agriculture and whatnot, if you allow us to do that, in some drilling in your country, I'm gonna we're gonna give you personal bodyguards, we'll give you you know, we'll give you a whole army training, we'll give you Arsenal, we'll give you a patches or helicopters, we'll give you whatnot and your throne, or your seat will never never rock, you'll be in this place, we'll ensure that you stay here.

00:17:11--> 00:17:44

But if you don't want to accept this, then I just want to show you and he actually shows a bullet in his other hand, and he says, I want to, I want to remind you of how soon so president died. So Prime Minister, I just want to remind you of that, if he plays ball, then what they do is they will come they will come and they will they'll give him all those things. They'll give him women, they'll give him money, they'll still show him off country can places money, they will watch him do his scandals, and they will say we'll protect you. There's all these all these, you know, big, big law, all of these are all part of it.

00:17:46--> 00:18:22

And then if he plays ball, they'll come they'll build his country up with borrowed money with money loaned by the IMF. This is this is not money that they're giving, they'll say, oh, we'll bring you infrastructure of the country Look, just, you know, allow us to do this. So the President says, okay, fine, I'll allow it, then then they they don't even give the mind to that country. They make the country borrow from the IMF, the IMF international sort of, you know, this monitoring fund, whereby gives, the bank gives money direct to those 51 corporates or one of those 51 Corporation to come in to build the roads to build the bridges to make the infrastructure well, and then the

00:18:22--> 00:18:58

country is in debt in Riba be time until the whole country can drown in this river, then after 10 years, they say, Oh, you haven't paid us this much. Oh, the interest is going up. Okay. Now we're going to add interest unless you give us more permission, give more permission for us to drill in your country, for us to find certain resources for us to you know, take these issues and what they do allow Lola to live in LA. For example, let's let's talk about South South American country, they'll go there. And they'll be like, you know, bananas, they say bananas, what they'll do is they'll go in that country, Ecuador, let's say Ecuador or something, they'll go there. They'll get

00:18:58--> 00:19:26

the bananas. And they'll come in as you know, big big businessmen, they'll come and they'll slowly buy out the bananas from each of the traders. So let's say you're selling it for 15 Pence, you know, you're selling for 20 pounds, you're selling it for 15 pounds. Well, you can buy this one up, buy this one out, buy that one. So basically, they'll come and give massive amount of money, buy all the banana. So there's one guy who says no, I'm not going to sell my bananas, okay. So what they'll do is they'll put the price down, they'll make a massive loss, they'll put a 10 P.

00:19:28--> 00:19:59

That guy won't be able to sell he'll go bust everyone buying from him from this guy who's monopolized most of it then this guy goes bust. Next day even he gives us bananas. Once they've monopolized all the bananas, then they will put the price up. But what they'll do first is they'll bring the bananas over to our countries to let's say England, Canada, US and Europe and the sell them for like one pound, one pound 50 don't make enough money. And the few they can't sell the ticket back to the country. You know what they do now? The country was paying 15 pounds of bananas before

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

Now to that country, they're going to sell for 45 p 50. p, they can do what they like because they've monopolized all the bananas. You guys guys understand? Yeah, now they're doing this not because bananas, they'll do with anything, they get hands on anything they get their hands on, they'll do it. So they want to monopolize it, they want to take it, they want to, you know, on the one hand and make them pretend make make you like, look like they're gonna build infrastructure. On another hand, what they'll do is they'll make they'll, they're basically destroying the country. But if you look at most of the politics in the world of who's doing what, why they're doing it, you

00:20:32--> 00:20:42

know, what, if you know the true politics, the top level of politics, where the trades are going on, where the corporations are, who's controlling who even governments, governments are like,

00:20:45--> 00:20:53

when it comes to money, even all these big presidents, you look at any American president, any American president, any British Prime Minister,

00:20:54--> 00:21:14

the second point there is going to be why because the corporations are telling them, if you don't do what we say, we are going to stop investing into your your government, because all these governments are getting monies from these corporations. So they want to look after them. So most of this trouble started from one Helsel man,

00:21:16--> 00:21:31

the greed for wealth, that's where he started from. In fact, if you now that this entrepreneur from a big political level, most of these problems are because of money, money, money, money, that's what where the problems are coming from. And then let's now go to a to a small level to my level and your level.

00:21:33--> 00:21:38

Most of the problems that we have in in family lives and so on, a lot of it comes down to money.

00:21:39--> 00:21:40

A lot of it comes down to money.

00:21:42--> 00:22:02

You look at brother, one brother who wants to break his relationship with another brother, why? inheritance money because of the father's in a land because of what he should have. Because of one brother becoming jealous, jealous over another brother because one brother's got more money than the other one, the other one wants something of him. A lot of these problems rotate around that

00:22:03--> 00:22:12

every one of us is eyeing another person out is what what's your level in the society? How much money have you got out, and then when there's someone with more money,

00:22:13--> 00:22:40

let's say for example, there's someone from your family members, or from your friends, who suddenly got a lot of money. Now you got inside your head. So you've got inside your greed, and shaytan knows this is playing that you want. He wants you to be greedy with this. But in the end, when you have when you can't make enough money as your brother or as your friend, then what happens to the to the heart shaytan in Jackson jealousy he he ignites the jealousy inside.

00:22:42--> 00:22:59

Men or women, he'll ignite the jealousy. Oh, I should have had that. I should have had this. Why don't have this? Am I am I speaking the truth? Yes or no? Guys? Right? This is how shaytan gets to us. And all of it is this his? His his greed inside? greed can kill a human being.

00:23:00--> 00:23:04

We're not saying kill him literally. But inside is more or less dead.

00:23:05--> 00:23:21

Greed can do that. In fact, if you can't get you in this, let's say some of you sitting here said no, no, I'm not jealous of family. I'm not jealous of friends. Whatever. I've got Alhambra. I've got Alhambra. You're a very good person sitting here. If you haven't got jealousy, if you haven't got this greed inside you. Okay, that's very good. But guess what he's going to do after that?

00:23:22--> 00:23:41

A lot of people. If he can't get you into jealousy, if he can't get you in the greed, what he'll do with you is that he'll make you earn money and earn money and earn money and make that your purpose of life. Make that like the thing I want to chase, Chase, Chase, Chase, Chase, this is the thing I want to get more of more of more and more, more and more.

00:23:42--> 00:23:45

And it makes people go crazy, crazy.

00:23:46--> 00:23:51

People start doing all sorts of silly things like people are doing silly things right now. You're thinking

00:23:52--> 00:23:55

about silly people who are working overtime.

00:23:57--> 00:24:06

Why are people working overtime? You're gonna say to him, Well, if he doesn't work overtime, then he won't be able to pay his bills. Right? My question to you is, why does he have so many bills,

00:24:07--> 00:24:10

live your life, according to what you can afford.

00:24:12--> 00:24:53

You don't need that big car. A lot. A lot of people, I'll tell you one thing. A lot of people, a lot of people, what they do is they fall into the trap. The trap is that shaytan will make you associate with a certain circle of people who are higher than you higher than your pay grade, or higher than you in terms of how much money you've got. And once you associate with those people, then you're in serious trouble. Because you're gonna have to match those people. Are you guys follow me or not follow me? Yes. So for example, you know, you're a man who earns let's say 30,000 pounds. You're a man who earns 30,000 pounds, and your life can easily rotate 30,000 pounds. You got two kids, you

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

got a small house. You got a wife in there, and you got to just you know, old car, whatever. Or maybe

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

don't have a car, but but everything's just just working fine. When you associate yourself with people who are adding 50,000 pounds, and earning a lot more who got bigger houses, who got who got better cars, who, you know, live a certain life, if you or your wife feel that you need to step up to their way of life and keep your good connection with them and sort of show that you can be on their level, you're in a big problem and a lot of people make this mistake. Big mistake, big mistake. You know, I don't give a damn about people who are above me in status or I like Mashallah, vanilla.

00:25:41--> 00:25:52

Vanilla, but don't tell me how to live my life. Like, well, I am going to live my life. So for example, I'll be very straight with you my clothes. I wear my clothes until I can't wear them anymore.

00:25:54--> 00:25:56

Some of our clothes I've had for 20 years.

00:26:00--> 00:26:18

This this this job I'm wearing now. Probably about 10 years. I'm not joking. These 10 years I've got I've got a cardigan there for probably about seven, eight years. I've had shoes for five years, six years, seven years. Till I can't I can't wear them anymore.

00:26:19--> 00:26:24

I've got certain clothes of items, clothing items I've got right now in my wardrobe. 20 years.

00:26:26--> 00:26:30

My sofas are home. I bought them 19 years ago, 18 years ago so hungry.

00:26:32--> 00:26:35

People come we don't grow. How I don't know. I'm not growing at the moment.

00:26:38--> 00:26:41

You know, people come and sometimes people see there's a little tear in my sofa.

00:26:44--> 00:26:47

There's a tear in my sofa has been there for years.

00:26:48--> 00:26:50

I'm not gonna hamdulillah So,

00:26:51--> 00:27:11

but yes, Alhamdulillah you have brilliant sofas, you have no tears in your sofas, you have the stats you man, I don't have to live up to your life. This is my life. If you like me, you like me, if you don't like me, goodbye. Enjoy your life. I'm not gonna come up to your league. I don't have to live your kind of life. Because once you do that, you're in trouble because then you need to earn more money.

00:27:13--> 00:27:35

You get more money for this function for that function for this for that and people go crazy. Crazy. social status is why they're gonna have this certain type of, you know, clothing brand names, the movement after certain bands. Oh my god, I can't take that. I've heard women. I can't take that back over there. Because if that take that back, they're gonna look at me and they're gonna think I'm a cheap little woman. Cheap woman.

00:27:37--> 00:27:38

You know, I'm saying so I

00:27:39--> 00:28:09

mean, you know, I'm a Product bag. And I've even gone to someplace like First of all, when I'm to carry something, I'll carry a normal, you know, carry a bag those 10 p sainsburys. bags or, you know, whatever bags, I'll even get one of those that I just put my stuff in and I'll go I don't care. That's who I am. And some people are like, Whoa, you can't go with a Tesco bag or 10 p bag is from a company that does is one day long runs take them inside. Go right now. No, you can't want people gonna say what are what are people gonna say?

00:28:10--> 00:28:16

See, what are people gonna say? If I took this 10 p bag All right, take a 10 p Sainsbury's or Tesco back? If I took it to Bangladesh.

00:28:18--> 00:28:24

They'd be like, Mashallah, where do you get that man from? Hmm, that's kind of classy, you know?

00:28:25--> 00:28:33

Seriously. And you know what I do? Honestly, I live my life according to

00:28:35--> 00:28:51

the the longest period I would have had in my life. You know, there's one time when my father took me to Bangladesh, to my whole family's bank, and for one year, we hated it. But today's vanilla, I kind of think and think, wow, I think all these kids needed.

00:28:52--> 00:29:15

You know, our kids, if you don't take your kids to a third world country, and you basically make them live with real poor people. If you don't do that, honestly, your kids are never going to grow up appreciating what they've got. They're never going to grow up. I appreciate every single thing I have. You know why? Because my dad took us there to Bangladesh and this was Bangladesh in 1986.

00:29:17--> 00:29:29

This is back in the days, my friend. He never took us to some nice place in the town. He took us to a village You know what, there was not even electricity in the village, no electricity, forget TV, no electricity,

00:29:31--> 00:29:33

no electricity, no gas.

00:29:34--> 00:29:37

No, nothing, not even freshwater.

00:29:38--> 00:29:55

Nothing, you just stay in the middle of the village. And we had to stay there for one year. And that really taught me a lot about how these poor people live. You know when you live amongst those poor people, we know those poor people. You know the few bits of rice we leave in our we leave on our plate.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

They'll come they'll pick your plate up.

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

They'll scrape your plate and they'll eat it. And the scrape it scrape and they'll eat it. When you see that you're the mango you cut a mango, the peel of a mango and you throw the peel away. They'll take the peel of the mango, put it in their mouth and take the remaining of the mango from that peel and eat that.

00:30:22--> 00:30:39

Am I saying the truth so guys, when you see that you can think La la la la this is this is real world. The man has only got a chicken a few chickens ago if he has a goat is a big thing. Right? When you see that kind of think that this man is his whole life is this one cow

00:30:41--> 00:31:01

and everything rotate is on the one cow one bowl he's got his dream is to have just a little piece of land. His dream is to have you know a tin roof that doesn't leak because he's got a thatched roof that where the where the water falls in and when you see those to Dana they are and you live with them. Guess what? Guess what? Most of them are happy.

00:31:04--> 00:31:37

Most of the happy line and honestly they work early in the morning. They go out in the fields they work really hard. They come at 12 o'clock in the in the burning need to have something quickly they might have something to eat or go straight back to the field they work work work although to acid by acid they come home have a shower. A shower is not like a shower proper shower. No it's like pond dump. Deep inside, come back out. Yeah, just dry yourself. You know, with the luck of the soap, they're lucky to go so and then after that they come out they're very fresh, fresh, okay, the children are playing after ourselves. Okay. And by modeling everyone's within the homes you have a

00:31:37--> 00:31:54

bit of cha cha cha whatever by Asia, everyone's asleep. After Chevron's esteem, that's it. There's no there's no electricity, there's only lanterns. So yeah, even the lantern the hammer if they haven't got the oil for the lantern, man. There's no lantern. And if you have a torch light that's like, wow, this guy has a torch light.

00:31:55--> 00:32:25

I mean serious when you live a one year like that. And you live amongst those people and you see what this is life. And then you come back to a country like this. And you have all these things that you got you think wow, you know, I'm gonna appreciate every single thing that I have. You know, I really thank my father for for doing that. I hated that time. I absolutely hated it. But today, I think my father what he did, what the blessing he taught me is that for life, I always think that's the real life. So you know, if I have 10 pounds in my hand, if I have 20 pounds, vessels and clothes like this, I'm not gonna 100

00:32:27--> 00:32:49

it's like the people over there. I've seen them. They don't have they don't have these clothes. You know, I wouldn't I I take my old clothes to Bangladesh, and I donate them. And when you donate my old clothes, I'm donating them. They're so happy. The man's in tears. Because now he's got a his What is my old Juba is like his, his his, he's gonna wear that on a day where he'd

00:32:51--> 00:33:17

it makes you cry my mild clothes, which I you know, they're not bad. They're not really real bad shape. They're just old, really old. And I take them by me, that's the man's going to wear it with pride on the day of varied. And when you associate you live your life like that, that you know what, who wants to have Harrison, you know, have all this greed in your, in your you know, heart and life? Kind of life. Some of us are living, right? And you come back

00:33:18--> 00:33:27

and you see this this woman or this man, you could have been, you know, this kind of clothes. We're gonna have let you know, my car can drive this car. Why not? Man?

00:33:29--> 00:33:37

I was when I was in a car, a spiral. I know. I was just in a car yesterday with someone. And you know what he said? He was he was borrowing somebody else's car.

00:33:38--> 00:33:55

And he had to put his, his his, uh, his his phone onto the onto the dashboard in front of him for the Sat Nav, right. And as we were driving, he said, he said, I said, I don't like this car. And I'm like, why not? He said, because he doesn't have a built in Sat Nav.

00:33:56--> 00:34:35

I'm like, yo, yo, Bro, I see my life. I've never had a car with the built in Sat Nav, right? And I was laughing I was like, Whoa, that's good. Man. I think your standards are enough to say like, but people understand this. And the thing is, you know, if you ever come across those people be happy for them. I'm happy for these people built inside enough cars because 50,000 pound cars. I'm happy for you, man. That's your life. But what I love puppy is where Allah put me and I'm happy where I am. And as long as you can do that without you without feeling the hits, without feeling the greed inside. You know what you're like you're rich man. Because process makia has said that. He said he

00:34:35--> 00:34:48

said lay sell, lay sell Hina mean Catholic, Catholic the out of the Malcolm makala restaurant. Professor Lawson told us that if you want to measure a man or a woman

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

in terms of how rich they are, then it's not because of the amount of monies or amount of wealth they have. That's not how you measure a rich man or ritual.

00:35:01--> 00:35:29

You know, look at the Bill Gates you look at the Warren Buffet, you look at the big, big, big, you know, billionaires trillionaires of the of the of the world and you say wow, these are the people rich. No, no, the person said, don't measure a man or a woman with the amount of wealth they have. He said measure them. He said enamel Alina, Alina Neff knifes. He said richness is the time when your own ego and your soul says I don't need anymore

00:35:31--> 00:35:35

The moment you say to yourself I don't need anymore I have enough

00:35:36--> 00:35:37

you're a rich man.

00:35:38--> 00:35:45

You're a rich woman. And that's what life's supposed to be. I mean, you can live honestly you can live any life if you get used to it

00:35:47--> 00:35:51

you can live in like that year in Bangladesh I got used to it man.

00:35:52--> 00:36:10

I was wearing a loony I was going out there with the poor people unlike you know Tempe sandals I dressed like them I like them I won't like them. And you know what? You get used to the dusters around you the flies are everywhere the mosquitoes out there not so big deal man. He part of the life you get used to any kind of life you get used to.

00:36:11--> 00:36:47

And here in this country whatever I'm doing every person Listen to me whatever your life is, if you keep it to that and you save yourself you don't have enough You know what? You're safe from one of the biggest diseases shaytan can use against you which is greed. You're safe. Because then you Only you know you work Monday to Friday you work nine to five Alhambra's enough Why are people going crazy worthless another two hours another one hour here on the weekends as well you know why? You know why? Because they're using those monies for silly things. Citizen like a mendy a wedding is coming up. They're gonna have a Monday. Monday is when you know the women get together the woman

00:36:47--> 00:37:18

goes separate and the women go crazy start dancing and now what they do the men start doing whatever they want over there. Women start putting all the yellow water now some some time to married couples are throwing on each other, or there's just you know, paint each other with Mehndi and all that kind of just before the wedding, okay, and then they have loads of food there isn't that big celebration, the calling Mandy some of you looking at me thinking what's that? Well, this a Pakistani, Bengali Indian kind of thing. MND that they have and you know what it is it's an absolute waste of money and they and all that money the guy worked for extra hours is gone to things like this

00:37:19--> 00:37:40

is going towards things like you know you want to have a chair the guy just to have a bit of an expensive jewelry expensive sofa instead of instead of paying for a sofa that he could pay less for he's going to pay a lot more a lot more 2000 pounds 3000 or 4000 pounds for a sofa you know when I moved to my new house, I needed a sofa you know what I did? I went to the secondhand shop

00:37:42--> 00:38:21

in Enfield in ponders and I went there day in day out day in day I'm looking for when these some second Ansoff is going to come in one day I went in there and I saw you know this this big sofa three seater and another two seater. I saw it as a how much is that? 100 pounds as a fine leather sofa Nice. Nice leather sofa 100 pounds instead of paying you know 2000 pounds as a deal. Bring it over? They bought it over. Alright, you know how long does so for the last nine years? Still going? Probably last minute five six years Alhamdulillah 100,000 are read.

00:38:23--> 00:38:24

I'm like Mashallah. Alhamdulillah

00:38:26--> 00:38:27

Alhamdulillah is good.

00:38:28--> 00:39:04

So if someone comes to my house and says Why have you got this after look around? I live my life according to my standards. Not according to yours. Okay, you live how you want to live? Are you gonna have you can live your life very simple. Very simple. You don't have to live the life with what what expectations all these people have got. On the weekends. They want to spend this money to go to holidays, nothing. Oh my god. We haven't been holiday food. We haven't been holiday. Oh my god. What am I gonna do when I push my pram to school? And all the moms are going to be talking after the summer holidays? Because we went to Tunisia. We went to Morocco. We went somewhere else.

00:39:04--> 00:39:07

I'm just gonna say I went to Birmingham.

00:39:11--> 00:39:20

on you. When are we going to go Haldane when are we going to go holiday? We're gonna go holiday holiday holiday. We haven't been hold it for two years. For two years. I'm like well, so what is not eight years yet?

00:39:22--> 00:40:00

It's not eight years yet honestly. There was a period in my life. I never took the family or holiday for about seven eight years. Kids were growing this small ha ha you suppose I don't understand this year. Look with the average salaries that we got out there. I wish your kids are younger growing up, especially when you want to take them to a holiday holidays. Yeah, I'll say Bangla. Some of you will understand. Yeah. You know the people who sell the tickets day to day and they go crazy. They called like mental Why? Because the price is got double the price, double the price of your ticket. Soon as the holidays coming in even a few days before that goes double the price or your Christmas

00:40:00--> 00:40:18

holidays, your Easter holidays to summer holidays. So now you're going to take your family abroad, you're going to pay double the price, and you want to say double the price each of the tickets like 1000 pounds, to take them over to Bangladesh, and Pakistan, Egypt to the 800 pounds, you got a family of five do the math is 4000 pounds, but that's just the ticket money.

00:40:19--> 00:40:43

By the time you land there, you spend for me more than four times because you gotta get a taxi, these dafair whatever luggage is suitcases, blah, blah, blah, blah. And by that that's the start is when you get there, then the drama starts. Then it's like this person wants money that person wants for me this, this will go to this function as babies because you're now the rich man that's landed in Bangladesh, right? So you gotta pay so much money here. They that by the time you know, after a couple of weeks to three weeks, you say?

00:40:44--> 00:41:18

Allah Take me back quick, take me back quick. You just spent 7000 pounds in three weeks or four weeks, you don't know how you did it? And how you're supposed to go every single year holiday how I don't I don't understand that some people want to go holiday two times a year three times? Yeah, look, if you can afford it, I was given the money Alhambra you go. But if you can't afford, it just said hamdulillah. That's where I am. I go on holidays, once in five years, once in three years, once in two years fine. stick to that all those people are seeing you in the you know, the when you pick up the kids or whatever people are putting pressure on you just tell them look, I'm happy for you.

00:41:20--> 00:41:22

I'm happy for you finished, you don't have to feel the pressure

00:41:23--> 00:41:30

on people in the name of all this pressure when I earn more money. And what shaytan does, you know in between is he makes the person

00:41:31--> 00:41:41

earn more money and more money when they probably don't need it. And the other one is what shaytan does is that he gives them a lot of pleasure in in

00:41:42--> 00:42:23

storing that wealth. That's another another problem he does. So one is that you get money coming in, and money goes out comes in goes out. Another one was shaytan. Whoa, this is a big one big big, in a way of getting you to be diluted is shaytan will make you earn money and store it, store it, store it, save it, save it, save it, save it, save it. And each time you save it, you kind of feel good about yourself. Oh, yesterday I was the owner of 10,000 pounds saving a car today I'm 20,000 pounds, when can I get to 25 to 30 it didn't becomes an intoxication. The person is going crazy like on a good 40 on a good 250 then 100 100,000 pounds.

00:42:24--> 00:42:37

And he doesn't even realize that death is waiting for him around the corner. As soon as death comes over 100 is going to towards his inheritance. He doesn't realize that. So it goes 100 then what he does is that shaytan makes the dreams and the hopes will be getting bigger.

00:42:39--> 00:42:45

This is a problem. So your hopes and your dreams? What's your dream? Well, you are happy in the beginning to have one house.

00:42:46--> 00:43:17

You had one small house, then shaytan makes you feel that okay, you need because a lot of people do need a little bit bigger house when you've got a bigger family. I understand that fine. But then shaytan says Well, what about the investment for the future? Now, again, if I'm not saying that all of this associated income if somebody is investing for the future of their children, they've got enough money they can invest for it, and you got time for the hero is giving enough time to acara enough time to do Alhamdulillah guy look invest? No problem. I'm not saying it's wrong. I'm not saying it's all from trade on but some people what he does is that they don't you know his biggest

00:43:17--> 00:43:24

thing is he wants to make you invest, save up, make more at the expense of your IRA.

00:43:25--> 00:43:42

That's where it gets problematic. That's what he's got you so please ask yourself a question Look, if Allah has blessed you with money because I know seven people come to this Masjid Alhamdulillah has given them a lot they've got investments offshore that invest businesses they've got this Alhamdulillah Masha Allah May Allah give them more say I mean,

00:43:43--> 00:44:03

Allah give them more. And they given the southern cause they pray they do more of Alhamdulillah but most common people don't have them. Me and you we don't have that. So what are we supposed to do? Always remember that wherever I'm earning whatever I'm saving for the future and whatever wealth I've got, I need to understand that my accurate I should not be compromised.

00:44:04--> 00:44:16

So if it means that I'm going to work extra hard for my investment of the future for myself and my children, and my IRA is being compromised, my auricula is being cut every day

00:44:17--> 00:44:32

that I'm in the room, and I'm in a serious problem. Because you know what happens to such a person imagine this year that I feel sorry for a lot of fathers. I really feel sorry for a lot of others Why? I feel so sorry for I look at the right thing. Gala. What have you just done?

00:44:33--> 00:44:57

The father worked 20 years so hard for his children's education for the future of his family. Right? He did a very good father didn't pray properly. He didn't put his time towards the akhira towards poor and was decay towards Allah anything. No, he just made me just about German. That's it. Okay. The father spent 20 years like that. Then the father comes to old age. Children are all educated

00:44:59--> 00:44:59

at

00:45:00--> 00:45:00

Father has nothing

00:45:02--> 00:45:42

because when the father dies now, when the father dies Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, three things will follow you to the grave, your family, your wealth, and your actions. Two things will return one will stay with you, your family return your wealth returns and your action for the accurate stay with you. So now imagine this father spent 20 years a lot of fathers are doing this, they work their you know, socks off to try and get the children's future education, investment, whatever right at the expense of the Acura and when they come to the end of their life and when they're 60 or something like that, then they want to do some ama now the health is bothering them

00:45:42--> 00:45:47

everyday everyday they're going back in in and out of the hospital, they're not able to do they're not able to do

00:45:48--> 00:46:23

because you know you're young days is the days when you should do about the only youngsters listen to this young days is the days do much better as you can know in your old days. old days is like you know, bonus time if you can do it, you can do it. And a lot of old people that like you know I probably Manny's problems or back problems with this. How are you supposed to do proper silencer. So this guy is at the end of his life. And guess what? When he goes in his grave, I think of this, all that 20 years he invested for his children, his children, they're above his grave will return back to his house, they'll take the rest of his wealth that they're he's given written to them,

00:46:23--> 00:46:30

everything is given them this dunya he's made their life for them. But he himself is sitting here without his armor. He's lost NASA

00:46:31--> 00:46:32

to knock guys down.

00:46:33--> 00:46:51

What's the point I'm trying to give make you feel good? Just wake yourself up? What's the point of this? It would have been better for this father to say that you know what, I'm going to take it a little bit easy. You don't have to earn that much. You don't have to go that fast. Now the other thing is lailatul have another problem. Yeah. Shaytan. In Hadith, he says,

00:46:52--> 00:46:55

an admin Allah wa Jalla upon

00:46:56--> 00:47:06

taking your time to do things, in a having patience in doing things like taking a time to earn something to get something this is from Allah.

00:47:07--> 00:47:27

But being hasty and wanting to get him down now quickly, hasty, hasty, anxious, and when you're just not having that is from the street on personal side is from the street on? So you know, one of the things that shaytan gets people with is that Yeah, you want to earn money early, quick. Now, that's from the shaytan

00:47:28--> 00:47:56

you can easily earn a comfortable amount throughout your life for 20 years, and then buy your house and this and that, that Alhamdulillah everything will be there. Shaytan makes you feel that no, I'm going to do it in five years, I'm going to do in seven years. I'm gonna do it within 10 years. So it makes you work extra, extra extra. When he makes you work extra lives. You know what he does? As you're doing that, and you're getting into life of work, work, work, sleep, you know, some people are like this. May Allah protect us army. Some people I know, I feel so sorry for them.

00:47:58--> 00:47:59

They leave for work.

00:48:01--> 00:48:04

The man is young, the man is 27.

00:48:05--> 00:48:52

And he's probably working in a bank or some big corporation, whatever it is, okay. And these corporations, they make them work quite a lot at that age. So the man between the age of 27 and 35 or 2737 know what, you know what this mandate, this man wish to come home at seven or eight o'clock comes home. His eyes are red, his feet are so he comes home he eats, goes to sleep, or eats bit of social media bit of TV about goes to sleep. He's asleep by 10 o'clock. He wakes up early in the morning, five o'clock, gets up has a shave, whatever, you know, gets a suit ready this tab blah, blah, blah. All the ironing everything else done shower early in the morning, probably gym. Okay,

00:48:52--> 00:49:30

then he has to commute to work for one hour, something 100 something hours, right? He's at work about eight o'clock. 830 is at work. He works all the way to six o'clock, six o'clock. 630 then he runs up comes commute all the way back home is tired, eight o'clock, comes home, he eats bit of TV social media goes to sleep. He's doing that about five to six days a week. Sometimes he goes in on a Saturday to finish as well because the company puts so much pressure on him he can't finish it the five days that he's got a lot of people work whether yes or no goes done. Right? They'll go half a day Saturday a long Saturday whatever he'll work in there just to catch up with his work and then

00:49:30--> 00:49:31

he's done that for 10 years

00:49:33--> 00:49:38

and you know what happens after that this person now is become the life to do this

00:49:40--> 00:49:59

is addictive they do again and again in and out in and out in and out and you know the money is good Don't get me wrong. The guy is going to Dubai he's gone here he's going there he's you know got money here money spent here good car good phone good you know he's gonna invest in his business at all is good my friend but you know what I look at nothing, man. You're just wasting your

00:50:00--> 00:50:00

Man,

00:50:02--> 00:50:07

you're wasting yourself What good is that you're earning all our money and then you end up in the grave we got Nothing.

00:50:09--> 00:50:32

Absolutely nothing. Because everything you're earning, if you don't invest it for the akhirah if you don't give it if you don't invest it for your family or for for needs and necessities, if you don't invest in that, then all that money's gonna go inheritance to somebody else. I think I think of this right now. Yeah, our only thing is monochrome mode came right now, I just want you to think of this right now. If molecule mode came right down to one of us,

00:50:33--> 00:50:50

I want you to think right now just pause for a moment. Just think all everything you've done all the money's all your bank money is not yours anymore. The money at your house is not yours anymore. The business goes in somebody else's name. The house goes in somebody else's name, right? Everything is shut right now. What have you got?

00:50:51--> 00:50:57

All your savings, gone to somebody else? So what was the point of war, the point of saving,

00:50:58--> 00:51:03

actually wanting the son of the Prophet of Allah Harrison was not, I just want to share something I'm not saying,

00:51:04--> 00:51:09

you know, saving money is wrong. I'm not saying that. We've got about 10 minutes or less than 10 minutes left. I'll finish by telling you

00:51:10--> 00:51:19

the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, you know, there's a very clear sooner that he had Salalah Islam, the Prophet sallallahu never used to save.

00:51:22--> 00:51:26

He's to spend, spend, spend, spend, come spend, come spend.

00:51:29--> 00:51:48

You look at that Hadith, even if you have some extra soccer, soccer spend, spend, spend. And guess what happens to the puzzle, awesome. He gets more and more wealth coming in. As he's getting older, more and both countries. In the beginning, he had nothing, but more and more coming. And as he came in, spend, spend, give, give, give, give out spend on is gone.

00:51:49--> 00:52:11

There are some people I know who live like this, whatever comes in, goes out, month comes in, goes out bills get paid this dadadada little bit of money for this for this, they might have a little bit of saving for something that they but nothing, nothing big. And then nothing big in terms of saving. And I look at those people. And you see one thing about them is that you know what, they don't have worries.

00:52:14--> 00:52:20

They don't have much worries. It's like they know they're going to work, the money comes in gets paid because comes in this way it goes in that way.

00:52:22--> 00:52:37

They're not bothered about a lot of these savings and putting a lot of money together. And I look at other people who have saved a lot of money. They saved a lot of money development. You know what, they've got more problems? Why? Because the question then comes is what are you going to do with that money.

00:52:38--> 00:53:01

So the demand from the families, the demands from people, if there's no demand from the people around them, there's demand from their own ego to how to spend that money, or what to do with it. And it's easy to get into a sinful life once you've got money, a lot of money laying around, I'm not saying don't have money running around. I'm saying Be very careful with the heads with the greed. Now the question now is how do you stop yourself from having greed?

00:53:03--> 00:53:11

How you stop yourself is look at the balance of the of the Quran. The Quran whenever it speaks, I'll give you I'll give you one.

00:53:14--> 00:53:23

You know, the Quran has spoken a lot about wealth, a lot about wealth, but let me just give you this, this this is here.

00:53:26--> 00:54:00

So Allah azza wa jal says, is Surah Allah brownsword number three is number 14 xuyen and inasa kabu chahatein Anissa. What has been ornamented for people on the earth is the love of the desire for women, and the desire for children and the desire to hold wealth of golden silver and the desire to have fast horses those days fossils these days fast cars, and to have a stock of animals lives livestock of animals, and to have

00:54:01--> 00:54:42

tooth land and cultivation and so on. Allah says delicate material higher dunya all of these things are a temporary, temporary means of benefiting from the life of this earth while lowering the horsnell map and Allah has got a much better returning for you What is that? Allah says pull out will not be coming behind me Danica. Shall I tell you something that is better than this? The Latina taco and those who are fearful of you who are mindful of the Lord, Allah says I've got garden so you did not integrate him into Terra now you got gardens beneath which there are rivers that are flowing Allah says you're going to be in there forever Forever was valuable to her I'll give you pure pure

00:54:42--> 00:54:59

spouses over there in Jana worried one min Allah I'll give you my happiness my pleasure will law who will see you don't get a bad analyze well watchful of what his servants are doing. Allah says you want to be of these people if you want to if you want to be of these people of the people who have got more than we have these people Allah says Allah Dena kulu those who say

00:55:00--> 00:55:41

By now wallowed in Nana ama, we surely have have believed Finland, so forgive us, for Finland as Illumina forgive us our sins joaquina I've ever not and save us from the punishment of the Fire us RBD these are these are the real people who are the most fortunate people on this earth. Look how Allah contrasted. Allah says these are the ones are going for women from gold for silver for for, you know, holding assets and wealth and so on. And so says this is the other side, I saw that in those patients, or saw that those were truthful while coordinating those who are steadfast in my in my pathway, while 115 those who spend while Mr. Farina bill has had those who seek my forgiveness in

00:55:41--> 00:56:06

the depths of the night. Before further they asked me for forgiveness. And you know what, whenever you look at the Quran, where Allah does is Allah keeps on reminding us about Jenna, reminding us about the treasures of the next world, reminding us of what is out there. I mean, I just the other day, I just pulled up my car in my driveway. And my son said Oh, dad, dad, dad, dad look low, low, low, low, Ducati, Ducati, Ducati.

00:56:09--> 00:56:09

Ducati,

00:56:11--> 00:56:13

Ducati, Ducati.

00:56:15--> 00:56:34

How long I said, I've got more than that. No, you haven't. No, you haven't. You haven't your car's worth 3000 pounds or 2000. But maybe No, no, that's worth so many hundreds 10s of 1000 pounds. I said over more than that. He said, How can I get more than that? said How? As a Subhana Allah He will hamdulillah Allah, Allah, Allah Allah.

00:56:35--> 00:56:36

And he looked at me saying,

00:56:38--> 00:56:45

so I explained to you I said, Look, as I say, with Mr. Mohan Allah, while hamdulillah Laila Allah, Allah,

00:56:46--> 00:56:59

the Prophet sallahu wa sallam said in the hands of Muslim whoever will say this phrase, once has got more has received more in the Acura more than whatever the sun rises above

00:57:01--> 00:57:32

some more than every Bugatti in the world every Ferrari in the world every Lamborghini in the world every high building in the world every business in the world all the money is together all the palaces together all the dreamers together all the islands together all the countries together all the economists together, every businessman every trillionaire billionaire millionaire bring them all together. said so the handle Allah He will hamdu lillahi wa ala hele Allahu wa Lahore but even more than enough inshallah Allah

00:57:33--> 00:58:10

that's life and if you can, if you can see if you can see that if I live my life according to this in the accurate I've got lot more you don't need you don't need all of this right. And you save yourself from hate Assam from greed, but concentrate what the Quran says the Quran keeps in St. JOHN Medina, I mean, think about what the Quran is one phrase genetic testing data and how you know whether or not you know what that means. It means you're in a palace in Jannah. And, and we'll talk about these in one of the themes we'll do about about gentleman shala. But yurina imagine this, you're in a palace in Ghana, where you're sitting inside your palace, and you've got fountains that

00:58:10--> 00:58:12

come up, right.

00:58:13--> 00:58:39

And they're there for you just to drink from the fountain you got servants going around, we're bringing from the fountains, right, and you can see right through your floor of your palace right through your floor, there's a river of wine that is flowing through a river of wine going all the way through, and rivers of honey milk rivers of water, separate rivers, going through your your ground, and you can see it and it pops up from the fountain and that's for you to drink.

00:58:40--> 00:59:05

Imagine, imagine you had a house like that. Allah saying you will that is for you just to do those Amell and those actions. Okay, so today's session was about the greed of wealth. May Allah azzawajal protect us from that. We'll have more themes in Sharla. Next week, I'll see you again after Isha. What happens usually at 730? or seven, half, seven next week. I'll see any questions you've got for today's session. anyone got any questions?

00:59:14--> 00:59:15

How did the process gives a cut?

00:59:17--> 00:59:22

I, the thing is, I don't know if the professor Lawson

00:59:23--> 01:00:00

I don't know if he ever said I'm sure there must have been I'm sure that there is the cut that he gave, which would be you know, towards the end of his life, a lot of money came towards him a lot of money. We're talking about, you know, hundreds of sheets, hundreds of camels, hundreds of these things were gifted to him given to him through some of the booty that they got from the from the spoils of war that they had. And I'm sure I'm absolutely sure that the process would have calculated these occurred. But why he did most of 99% of this stuff is gateway gateway. So he would have given us a cut and he would have given a lot more in terms of satisfaction.

01:00:00--> 01:00:06

haven't got any calculation of what the processor actually gave, but I'm sure that was given. Okay. Any other questions you've got?

01:00:07--> 01:00:09

Yes. Sorry.

01:00:11--> 01:00:12

What's the benefit of
