A lot of

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


00:01:38--> 00:01:40

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim.

00:01:46--> 00:01:50

hamdulillah hamdulillah here waka was Salam o Allah Bernie Hillary and stuffer

00:01:51--> 00:01:54

for Santa Ana, so you did a super hot meal and via

00:01:55--> 00:01:59

legal Ischia was clear and my dad

00:02:07--> 00:02:11

today in sha Allah we will be discussing the story of

00:02:13--> 00:02:17

one of the companions who accepted Islam right at the beginning.

00:02:19--> 00:02:25

Two days after Satan a little bucket Cydia for the Allah Juan, according to some of the historians

00:02:27--> 00:02:42

there are narrations that show us how this very close and dear companion of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the eighth individual to accept Islam.

00:02:44--> 00:02:53

Being that early to accept Islam meant that the whole experience of being a Muslim is what they had to go through.

00:02:55--> 00:03:40

Right from the early days of secretly privately meeting together with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in disclosed locations, praying Salah in the hills in the valleys, being with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Arkham. Seeing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam struggle with the people of Makkah mahkamah With witnessing the challenges and abuse of Allahu alayhi wa sallam faced with his own family, people passing away his own children leaving the world, yet the purpose that Allahu alayhi wa sallam enduring and pushing forward. They saw this with their eyes. This observation, seeing what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam went through, not just in the

00:03:40--> 00:04:05

beginning, but in the middle and also being there right at the end, is what shaped these individuals. This is what made them into great legends. In our last class, I covered this, but I'll mention it today. Again, knowledge itself doesn't bring change in people. Knowledge serves as a tool for improvement.

00:04:06--> 00:04:50

It's that tofield that guidance from Allah subhanahu wa taala which generally comes on the back of inspiration that is gained through seeing the ambition and hard work of people around you that you gain strength, that you believe in a greater purpose, that you understand that whatever people tell you your limit is, in reality, you actually just start there. It's up to Allah subhanahu wa taala to accept people. It's up to Allah azza wa jal to utilize people for the fitment of the deen. Your task is to do the best you can in your life. Yet you must be surrounded by

00:04:51--> 00:04:56

people who have also used their life in a meaningful way.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

I'm the rock man been out for the Allah one

00:05:01--> 00:05:24

was that great Sahabi and the Prophet of Allah, who saw me he said Allahu Allah, he was salam with his own eyes. And when things became difficult, after the public call to Islam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave permission to the companions to migrate from Makkah to Abyssinia. He was one of the companions who went it took his family with him.

00:05:26--> 00:05:38

And then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam arrived in Madina Munawwara and after a month and overthrow the Allah one, he heads over to Madina, Munawwara and meets Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam there.

00:05:40--> 00:06:28

For the moment that he arrives in Madina, Munawwara the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam paired the Companions, with residents of Medina to help them kickstart their life. Migration from Mecca to Medina meant you were starting from ground zero, you were starting from scratch. You had nothing left to you. This isn't easy. How does a person walk away from life? How do you walk away from your wealth? A person has to walk away from $1,000 paycheck gets heavy on them. Someone has to walk away from a $10,000 bill or a deal. It's heavy on them. A person has to walk away from their home impossible. You say I'll make it work. I'll drive two hours extra if I need to, on the weekends to

00:06:28--> 00:06:37

take my kids to Islamic school or Sunday school there are a program I can't just leave my home. No. These people left everything

00:06:38--> 00:06:59

are sort of lost and Allahu alayhi wa salam always appreciated this about them. And therefore they were given the title and mahadji rune that these people were willing to walk their walk from life. Alongside of sort of Lhasa Allahu alayhi wa sallam to this new chapter was out of love for Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:07:02--> 00:07:08

Allah subhana wa Tada mentions them in the Quran. The people who did hinge it on those who might

00:07:10--> 00:07:45

be sort of aha Lee was salam in order to make the transition smooth in Madina Munawwara you have this great influx of people in the city. And if they are properly integrated, if you just take refugees or migrants and put them in a city and don't have a proper plan for integration, it can create many problems. You now have a group of people that are the other, you blame them for no jobs, you blame them for overcrowding the city, you blame them for your own problems as we see throughout history and even in our times.

00:07:46--> 00:07:56

The system the beast of the law, while it was seldom used to create proper and smooth integration for these companions is a study in itself.

00:07:57--> 00:08:05

How Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought these communities together and made them into one family made them into one people.

00:08:06--> 00:08:14

The other is being called in Madina Munawwara not by an unserious hobby who actually saw the dream. It's called by a muhajir companion

00:08:15--> 00:08:38

by belaga with your loved one, reminding the answer that even though you are the host, when it comes to executing the deen those with merit will be the ones that are selected, not you simply based off of the fact that you are the ones that are hosting us. Reminding the companions of the MACOM of the Sahaba with one Allahu Allah image may

00:08:40--> 00:09:01

be said Allahu alayhi wa sallam enacted the monumental relationship of Walcott, one Mahajan companion who has joined with one on Saudi Sahabi one McKee with one Madani one migrant with one resident of Medina and the Prophet of Allah join their hands together and set you are now brothers.

00:09:03--> 00:09:04

The unsalted Sahaba

00:09:05--> 00:09:15

they weren't just any host. They weren't just any group of people. They had the most gracious, honoring humble

00:09:16--> 00:09:21

hearts that you can imagine. So generous these people were.

00:09:22--> 00:09:37

And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them the honor of hosting this great generation of Sahaba at the helm of their beautiful crown was the pearl Rasulullah sallallahu. It was it was their generosity.

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

And this is why Allah Subhan This is what Allah azza wa jal praises them with in the Quran, where you pharaoh now Allah and foresee him when you cannot be him. Kasasa Pharaoh Runa, unfussy him, Well Can it be him Kasasa that they give preference over themselves, even if what they have themselves is very minimal. This summarizes the attitude

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

and the approach of the unsavoury companions.

00:10:05--> 00:10:14

I'm not going to offer the Allah one is paired with Saudi Arabia and Saudi Arabia Allah one start with neurobion and Saudi Rhodiola. One,

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

he was Hazaragi.

00:10:18--> 00:10:20

One of the leaders of his people,

00:10:21--> 00:10:31

among every tribe in Madina, Munawwara they have these people called nokhada, the cube, the leader of the people, Saddam neurobiol, or the Allah one was the leader of his people.

00:10:33--> 00:10:37

Maybe said Allahu alayhi wa salam joined him with the amount of profanity Allah one.

00:10:38--> 00:10:47

He himself was a man of great merit, Saudi Arabia of the Allah one if you want to understand his MACOM and what Allah subhanaw taala had stored for him.

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

He was Shaheed in the Battle of life.

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed him with the honor of shahada

00:10:58--> 00:11:18

when the two were joined together, Saudi Arabia or the Allah one very famously set up the Rama and then Oprah, the Allah one, that I have a lot of wealth, I have two gardens have two wives. He set up the rock mountain and opened up the Allah one I want to be here by your side to kickstart your life.

00:11:19--> 00:11:44

And in any way that I could support you, I'm here for you. Take from my gardens as you wish. If you are worried about not being able to support a family and you need assistance in getting married, I am I'm willing to go as far as separating from one of my one of my wives to help you start your family if that's what you need. My wife half of it is yours. He puts it on the table that you take what you want.

00:11:46--> 00:11:56

Um, the amount of know from the Allah one, he says to him, may Allah give baraka in what you have. And this shows us the the wisdom of these companions.

00:11:58--> 00:12:05

How wise they were, someone offers you something you're in need, it's natural to just say yes, I'll take it.

00:12:06--> 00:12:44

Not the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, those who needed it, they didn't take it up the mountain and Oprah the Allah one in this moment, he knew that he could accept the offer of this companion or he could take the other path. And the other path is let me build myself up. I have the skill. I have the knowledge, I can do this. I've done it before. I lived a respectable life before he was a wealthy man. in Macomb, Oklahoma. He was younger than Rasulullah sallallahu it was set up in age. The historians they say I'm gonna open up the Allah hawan was born 10 years after a sort of loss of love. It was

00:12:45--> 00:13:00

10 years after the year of elephant is one of the amendment also that the alone one was born. So in age from an abuse of the law while he was sort of he's 10 years younger, you can put them around 43 years of age when they arrived in Medina.

00:13:04--> 00:13:14

He says to Saddam a little bit about the Allah one do linear soup. Show me where the market is. We'll take it from there. So he guides him to the market

00:13:15--> 00:13:26

of the ham and okra, the Allah one started his trade. He would take one thing, sell it here for profit, buy two things, make some profit on that and slowly worked his way up.

00:13:27--> 00:14:10

And there's a lesson in the life of the man and Oprah the Allah one for all of us. And that is that if you have the opportunity, the power the mind, the know how to earn wealth, then the right thing to do is go and earn it yourself. There are so many Tyr of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that teach us exactly this. And castable Habibollah the one that earns with his own doing is beloved to Allah subhana wa Tada. Now you said a long while he was sitting saw a young man asking and he scolded him that Why are you asking from people? Do you not have the ability to earn yourself? The Prophet of Allah then tells him it is better for someone to go and cut wood for fire and sell it in

00:14:10--> 00:14:25

the market than to spread their hands in front of people and ask. He's talking to a young able bodied, get up and go contribute to society contribute to the market. Take the higher ground, take the harder road. Being

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

on the receiving end of things is also complicated. In some situations, you have no option but to take and to ask in that scenario, there should be no shame there. We are one family we are one Oma. We are here to support one another look after one another. But at the same time, this shouldn't be a cop out for people that are probably in the beginning or middle of their life from actually contributing to the development of the market. To be there to support provide a service of their mom and Oprah the hola Juan

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

And by the way, this is why the Scholars have a lengthy discussion. If you open up the books of Hadith,

00:15:07--> 00:15:12

you will find a chapter dedicated to and now you honest

00:15:15--> 00:15:17

there will be a chapter on a Nahua on

00:15:18--> 00:15:20

the prohibition of asking,

00:15:21--> 00:15:22

you shouldn't go around asking.

00:15:24--> 00:15:39

And then the narrations wear a suit of law. So the law is some reprimanded individuals in the community that he saw that were asking the Prophet of Allah did not like the way they were doing it, or did not like them being the ones that were asking case study individual by individual.

00:15:41--> 00:15:45

And the interesting thing is usually after the chapter of No, here

00:15:46--> 00:15:49

comes the next chapter on the virtue of giving

00:15:50--> 00:16:27

well so the law said Allamani was Salam is telling the companions on the other hand, you just give away so one side of the community is being told you keep giving and giving and giving and support people and help them and give them loans and be there for them and if you could be a means for someone growing in life, then be that person don't yank people down when he asked Saddam notability hola Juan, where's the market Saudi Arabia or the hola Juan could upset in a very awkward weird scenario, figure it out yourself? Kind of like someone says to another person can you help me get an interview at someone so company and even though he can make it happen, He guides him in the wrong

00:16:27--> 00:16:34

direction? Because threatened this person might become competition for me. What if this person takes away my money?

00:16:36--> 00:16:41

Remember this, the sky that mentioned in the Quran, the clear principle in the Quran

00:16:42--> 00:16:57

and let this be embedded in your heart whenever you feel confused about how things are going to work out. Well mom and dad but in the Illa Allah Hera spa, well yeah Allah moments Takara or Mustafa

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


00:17:00--> 00:17:06

everything. every grain of rice that you will consume in your life is written by Allah subhanaw

00:17:07--> 00:17:11

You're task now is to go to the world and give it your best.

00:17:12--> 00:17:54

Give it the best that you can while being ethical, while being morally upright. While being committed to Khaled. There is a haram path, there is a halal path, choose the halal path. Allah subhanahu wa Tada will give baraka and wherever you get, don't be afraid of poverty, that if I do the halal I will lose well, then live your life in poverty if that's what's written for you. But living in poverty while being beloved to Allah subhanho wa taala. Being beloved to Allah, with a constrained financial situation is far superior to having all the wealth of the world but there is no mention of you in the heavens.

00:17:56--> 00:18:35

That your wealth is a source of your distraction. Stevan is rooting you on to get the next job promotion. I hope this guy gets another promotion man. Another two more promotions. He'll forget who his creator was. He just needs to three more promotions. Let's get this dude married. Get them promotion, send them on vacations and he'll forget who is hot it was. This is the unfortunate side spell of shaytaan a shavasana yeah either human *a way up Moodle crumble fascia, wala who are the Kamal ferrata men who are fortunate that Allah will give you more shaytaan promises you poverty, Allah subhanho wa Taala promises to multiply what you have

00:18:38--> 00:18:51

a group of people who supported one another. From here you see the heart of Saudi Arabia, not the Allah and one that he's saying, no, let me help you. When I see people like this in the community, I see a prophetic

00:18:52--> 00:19:26

trait in them that is lost. Because in today's world, it's about climbing the economical ladder, the materialistic ladder, the ladder towards the American dream, and if anyone else is behind you, rather than pulling them up, kicking them off, I don't want this guy to get the position. I don't want we're constantly threatened insecure. We think that someone else can take our risk. It is impossible for anyone to take your risks. Allah subhanaw taala has written for you what is yours and it will always come to you.

00:19:28--> 00:19:32

I'm gonna I'm gonna offer the Allah one makes his way to the market and he starts his thing

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

and much time doesn't even pass by

00:19:38--> 00:19:39

he has begin to build wealth.

00:19:40--> 00:19:56

The next thing of the matter or the along one does when he has wealth. He plans for marriage that I need to get married. This is also a powerful lesson that when a person has the financial means to get married, and they are in a good stable position in life.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

Find that sukoon and peace and

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

The other half of your deen

00:20:02--> 00:20:04

align yourself someone could.

00:20:05--> 00:20:37

You can have all the wealth in the world but without a companion to share it with what is that wealth? Our dean teaches us the importance of building a family. This is very, you know, central to the teachings of Islam. Family building, establishing units, preservation of lineage being a part of building a healthy, strong community. Earlier today someone asked me a question.

00:20:38--> 00:20:40

This is tricky. I don't even know if I should say it.

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

But we've already gone so far.

00:20:45--> 00:20:46

We have to walk this back.

00:20:50--> 00:20:51

Someone asked me

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

a question.

00:20:55--> 00:21:02

I don't find myself in love with my spouse anymore. Can I go ahead and get divorced?

00:21:05--> 00:21:06

tricky question.

00:21:10--> 00:21:12

From a Western perspective,

00:21:13--> 00:21:16

every interaction of life must be

00:21:18--> 00:21:20

honest and built off of self gratification.

00:21:21--> 00:21:27

So if you don't find happiness somewhere, you walk away. It's simple.

00:21:29--> 00:21:34

You have a relationship with your parents. If it's no longer making you happy, walk away.

00:21:35--> 00:21:46

You have a relationship with your siblings. If you feel there's no longer any love there, just walk away simple. You can walk away from anything you want to, if it doesn't make you happy.

00:21:49--> 00:22:16

In Islam, we have another concept and that concept is that if you are committed to relationships, walking away from those relationships can't merely be based off of how you feel it has to be based off of an objective truth. If your lack of happiness is a result of oppression, then of course you should find safety and protect yourself. If divorce is the option that gives you safety and protects you then that is therefore you take it. But if

00:22:17--> 00:22:52

the dissatisfaction isn't result of any oppression, any wrongdoing, it's simply because you can't find compassion for that individual anymore, then that's something you have to work on. How many relationships will you work with? What will you walk away from love in the western world is based off a passion. So when the passion is no longer there, it's time for you to walk. Passion is a very important part of a relationship of any relationship, specifically marriage. Actually, passion is a very important part of the marital relationship.

00:22:55--> 00:23:34

It's what launches this rocket off of the ground. It's what gets the relationship going, how do you take a relationship from zero to 50. Because you have to create momentum. That's where passion comes in. The inclination that the two genders have towards one another, your brings them together at launches them. But remember, this is a very quick form of fuel that burns out quickly. It's not really dense, it's light, it'll serve a purpose it'll project you for and if you're hoping for your relationships to exist purely off of the fuel of passion, you'll find yourself dry and exhausted very soon.

00:23:35--> 00:23:43

So now what's the next thing that we do? In order for this relationship to mature in order for it to reach a new place, you now have to transition

00:23:44--> 00:23:51

from being reliant primarily on passion, to now relying primarily on compassion.

00:23:53--> 00:24:02

With time that moves with time passing by, not only are you looking at that person, but you're also thinking about their kindness to you.

00:24:03--> 00:24:18

You're thinking about their traits. You're thinking about their character, their forbearance, you're reflecting on how this person has dedicated their life to how they tolerate someone like you. I'm speaking to myself here.

00:24:20--> 00:24:29

And it's with that reflection, that you now enter into a place of compassion. Now that relationship is secure.

00:24:30--> 00:24:50

Now you're in a good place. Therefore in the Quran, when Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us the dua for parents from their hemangioma. Oh Allah show compassion to them. Komodo Bayani Serena as they nurtured me when I was young with compassion. What makes the relationship between a child and parents so strong is that it isn't built off a passion. It's built off of compassion.

00:24:52--> 00:24:53


00:24:54--> 00:24:59

little pakery presentation is a summary of you

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

I have Sudoku room. What are they in? My word Dayton. What a passion and compassion.

00:25:08--> 00:25:11

When Allah subhanaw taala talks about marriage, I mean it and follow

00:25:12--> 00:25:35

Him as Roger. From the signs from his signs. I mean irtg AlFalah color calm that he created for you. Mean unfussy confirm you as virgin companions. Latest Kulu la ha. So you find peace and tranquility with one another. How do you find that peace and tranquility Rajala Boehner Kumar with the 10 whare.

00:25:39--> 00:25:42

No one at any point in Islam will ever promote

00:25:43--> 00:25:48

being pressed in any situation where you are

00:25:49--> 00:25:56

the recipient of oppression. This goes against the color of the dean, the principals of the Dean

00:25:57--> 00:26:01

Rasul Allah He set out to Salam said lavora one of the law

00:26:02--> 00:26:35

there is no causing harm to naman and neither should harm be reciprocated, you know a lot you are not you are not forced to be harmed by another human being. If you are being harmed by another person, it's not will always have an out for you, there will always be a solution there, then you do not need to suffer alone or suffer in isolation, there will always be a solution there. But on the other hand, you can't just walk away to how do you find that compassion in your relationships? How do we develop and fix the state of marriages in today's world? This is a result of gratitude.

00:26:37--> 00:26:38

Well, kalila men, anybody have

00:26:39--> 00:26:45

very few have the ability to express gratitude that even if you're for children into your marriage,

00:26:47--> 00:26:49

or like Zaid, 12 children into your marriage

00:26:54--> 00:26:59

you keep looking at your spouse, and you thank them for the small and big things.

00:27:00--> 00:27:03

You learn to smile at your friends.

00:27:05--> 00:27:06

It's fascinating because

00:27:10--> 00:27:11

the tolerance,

00:27:12--> 00:27:17

the forbearance, the great character that we have for our friends,

00:27:18--> 00:27:23

not many people are able to offer that same kindness to their own family members.

00:27:25--> 00:27:28

Why? This is the question, why?

00:27:33--> 00:27:36

Allahu Allah, Allah knows best. But one of the things that comes to my mind

00:27:37--> 00:27:40

is because we have high expectations from our family members.

00:27:42--> 00:28:03

We're running from one broken relationship to another broken relationship to another broken relationship to another broken relationship. And finally, when it comes to marriage, that is supposed to be the solution to all those broken relationships. We are expecting for everything to be served to us on a platter without realizing that relationships can't be built unless you are serving as well.

00:28:06--> 00:28:07

Expectations have to be adjusted.

00:28:09--> 00:28:35

And the relationship must be fueled by compassion. And compassion must be built off of the back up excessive gratitude that you keep thinking and you keep thinking and you keep thinking. If you can accomplish this, in your own marriages, in your own families, get ready to see the most powerful generation the earth has ever seen.

00:28:37--> 00:28:38

We will change the world

00:28:40--> 00:28:41

we will change it.

00:28:43--> 00:28:52

Young people who turn into adults will then become parents are a part of a cycle of abuse. It's very hard to break away from it.

00:28:53--> 00:28:59

What they do when they're in the Middle Ages and when they're old, is predicated off of what they saw when they were young.

00:29:00--> 00:29:04

And if what they saw when they were young was healthy discipline.

00:29:05--> 00:29:07

What they saw when they were young was compassion,

00:29:08--> 00:29:18

an environment of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, where education was rich, you have a whole new brand of human being. It's a whole different person.

00:29:19--> 00:29:26

With that sort of mindset, only Allah knows where this path will lead these great men and women of the future.

00:29:28--> 00:29:36

But without that, you can try all the different schools you want. We are in a rut. Any deviation is a fluke.

00:29:38--> 00:29:44

I'm gonna have an Oprah the Allahu on right here. After he builds his wealth establishes his family.

00:29:47--> 00:30:00

In the West, one of the issues that we have is that we view marriage as a jail, and I'm stuck it there are so many reasons for this. If you speak to the women of our community, there is one

00:30:00--> 00:30:10

narrative and story which is an unfortunate experience that we have. You speak to the men, it's a whole different story and another experience, which unfortunately is another reality that we have.

00:30:11--> 00:30:24

And until we stay in this blue pill, Red Pill locked down situation where the men are being accused of the red pill and the women are being accused of the blue pill, we're not going to be able to move forward

00:30:26--> 00:30:39

the way we as Muslims contribute back to society and humanity in the original pure form of Revelation is for us to break away from blue pill red pill and come back to the Sundarban abuse of Allah Allah It was said

00:30:40--> 00:30:53

that in Islam, we have a system of marriage. Let's strip away everything that has been added on to this pure system. And see when the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam POTUS then you'll see strip

00:30:54--> 00:30:56

you'll see what we as Muslims can offer.

00:30:59--> 00:31:12

Now he's married, he comes to meet Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet of Allah notices of the Ramadan and Oprah the Allah one has that special sent on him and wondering why he has some coloring on his hand

00:31:13--> 00:31:16

seems to be sort of long running he was salam asked him

00:31:17--> 00:31:22

may hum yeah absorbed man. What is this? Seems like you're we're celebrating.

00:31:23--> 00:31:26

He says you're sort of locked as I've watched. I got married.

00:31:28--> 00:31:37

He paused right theater. It's such a big story again. There's so much depth just in this part of the interaction without moving any forward.

00:31:39--> 00:31:43

He is married and the Prophet of Allah didn't even know

00:31:46--> 00:31:55

this isn't a take away from how much they respected and loved and also the loss of Allahu Allahu wa salam but rather to show how casual and have an affair marriage what's

00:31:56--> 00:32:02

the principle is that when you make Nikka easy, Zina then becomes hard.

00:32:03--> 00:32:19

When you make the halal easy, the Haram will become hard. But when you make the halal difficult, the halal then the Haram then will become appealing in the eyes of people and become very easy they will then push towards that they will head in that direction.

00:32:20--> 00:33:02

We talk about how Zina has become so in common in our community. Everyone talks about Zina here is you know There we see young people in colleges and universities. They can't protect themselves. Well, we have a solution and Islam. Yeah ma Shut up Shut up. Minister thought I'm gonna come with a bad idea to sandwich on my lap Mr. Taillefer Allah He the song young people, Prophet of Allah is addressing that group of society. Jamar Shut up Shut up. Mr. Thaw, I mean, come on back. And yet as always, whoever has the ability to execute a marriage they have the right strength by is it's a word that the Hadith and have interpreted in many ways. Some haven't translated a boss who wants one GMAT

00:33:02--> 00:33:36

that you're capable of being intimate. Other scholars have said it's laoise emoji man, everything that's involved with FIRST that is required first before you are intimate meaning the maturity that's needed the financial stability that's needed. Everything that is required on behalf of the man to provide for their family, Minnesota I'm in combat, find yet as I watch, and go ahead and get married, don't delay it. He is married. A suit Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam is finding out because of the effects of the party that are still on him. The Prophet of Allah doesn't scold him.

00:33:38--> 00:33:40

Did you get married without me?

00:33:41--> 00:33:46

You got married, good for you. The problem is that Allahu alayhi wa sallam asks him the right question.

00:33:48--> 00:33:50

Did you give her MA

00:33:52--> 00:33:53

did you take care of your wife?

00:33:54--> 00:34:00

It's her Huck. We just moved to Madina. Munawwara everyone's kind of broke here. Did you take care of your life or not?

00:34:01--> 00:34:03

He says you're a Soula I did.

00:34:05--> 00:34:08

Maybe sit alone while he was still and then asked him what was the MaHA

00:34:09--> 00:34:23

he says masala wasn't an Aladdin in that that the pit of a seat the pit of a date the seat of it. I gave the equivalent of that in gold to her the weight of that and gold that's how much I did.

00:34:25--> 00:34:33

Now that may be sort of low while he was selling has confirmed that the rights were properly fulfilled. Let me settle on a it was salam then teaches him

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

the Sunnah of marriage. Oh Liam well, I'll be shattered

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


00:34:40--> 00:34:59

that after a marriage is conducted there should be a one EMA a feast, sacrifice an animal, announce it to people. Let me be distributed cook some food celebrate together. Now to be very technical only one overshot and means to sacrifice an animal and walima is a meal that you have

00:35:00--> 00:35:39

Um, the purpose of the William is to announce it. The visa system is teaching us a lesson and two of the harm and over the Allah one that people need to know you're married, not just because of the party and the festivities, but also for the sake of a healthy society. We don't promote promiscuity. And people should know that these two this man or woman that are walking together in reality are married. And when one person gets married and they celebrate it in an appropriate manner, then someone else will see it and then they will be inspired for marriage to and they will want to celebrate it as well. But also the law said Allahu alayhi wa sallam POTUS is and therefore though,

00:35:39--> 00:35:49

some have gone as far as saying that walima is wajib au limb a monolingual job, because there was a command from an abuse of Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Therefore they see it's required.

00:35:51--> 00:35:56

But majority of the scholars will the position that it is emphasized sunnah and abuse of money alayhi wa sallam.

00:35:57--> 00:36:40

After marriage, more particularly after the consummation of the marriage, or core to the honeybees after consummation, or Halawa an opportunity to have consummated the marriage without any barriers. Then there should be a William, the Prophet of Allah says will be shot and even if it's through the sacrificing of an animal, you know, if you were to go and purchase a shot in Macomb, Oklahoma, a goat sheep or something equivalent to that, these days it would cost you around $130 Give it if it's something small, do it. Can a person do a Lima less than that? Yes, they can. There are moments in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, where the walima of the Prophet of Allah was

00:36:40--> 00:36:42

actually a potluck.

00:36:44--> 00:36:55

The prophets only Lima by the way and speaking of love, you said Allahu alayhi wa salam got married. And there was a need for walima he didn't have anything available. So he said to the Companions, whatever you guys have bring it, we'll eat together.

00:36:57--> 00:37:05

Where is this? And where are the 25 $30,000.50 6070 $80,000 marriages that we have today?

00:37:06--> 00:37:09

I was in England yesterday, by the way. Yesterday, I was in London.

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


00:37:13--> 00:37:17

we were speaking at a hall. Actually, we were traveling from Manchester to London.

00:37:18--> 00:37:25

One of the brothers that I was speaking to, he said to me, that his relative was getting married that week, on Wednesday.

00:37:27--> 00:37:31

So the other brother that was there, he said to him, man, you guys are cheap. You're getting married on Wednesday.

00:37:33--> 00:37:43

What kind of wedding happens on Wednesday, making fun of him, you know, some banter. So this guy says, Man, the Wednesday wedding is costing us $10,000 For the haul.

00:37:46--> 00:37:50

And I thought to myself, subhanAllah This is the place that we are as people.

00:37:51--> 00:37:52

People are stuck.

00:37:53--> 00:38:11

There are expectations, obviously, there's family and you want to be able to accommodate your family shouldn't go and run away and get married. And you know, that's not a thing to I mean, respect your family's respect your culture. As much as all the guys here would want to do that have like a winning modality, that Subway

00:38:17--> 00:38:20

each person is limited to a six inch sandwich

00:38:21--> 00:38:22

with chips and cookie.

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


00:38:32--> 00:38:34

I was once in Saudi in a cab

00:38:35--> 00:38:39

and get catching a ride to the airport and there was a young guy driving me.

00:38:40--> 00:38:41

I was talking to him.

00:38:43--> 00:38:44

Mostly because

00:38:45--> 00:38:55

I wanted to polish up on my Arabic speaking skills. That was talking about random stuff like Ha ha look, that's where we started. How's it going? You know, come to find that

00:38:58--> 00:39:01

struggle with small composition but we kind of made her way along.

00:39:06--> 00:39:10

Once we as a composition went along, we were talking about marriage naturally.

00:39:12--> 00:39:13

And I asked him

00:39:15--> 00:39:21

Are you married because I watch the girls that I didn't get married. I said why?

00:39:22--> 00:39:25

He said marriage in Saudia is very expensive.

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

I had no point of reference. I didn't know how much it cost to get married in Saudi. So I asked him how much does it cost? He said between the mother and the festivities

00:39:40--> 00:39:43

it's no less than 50,000 US dollars

00:39:47--> 00:39:53

and then he said to me, and this is why I'm driving a cab because my hope is to get married and four or five years from now.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

Oh Lim will be shot.

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

simplicity of the the

00:40:03--> 00:40:04

I'm not against culture by the way.

00:40:05--> 00:40:08

I don't think it's appropriate that we completely ignore our culture too.

00:40:09--> 00:40:11

But we have to come to a middle ground.

00:40:12--> 00:40:16

I'm not saying that people should do their limos again at Subway.

00:40:18--> 00:40:24

I'm not saying that. But neither am I saying that it needs to be some other work because now it's a big competition.

00:40:26--> 00:40:28

There was one Knickerbocker I was conducting.

00:40:30--> 00:40:30


00:40:31--> 00:40:50

asked the group, how much Mahara will you be giving? Usually after this, the family will say to me, please do not announce the amount. That's a common statement. People will say don't announce it. And naturally, there's no need to announce it. So we want to announce how much is being given. My task is to ensure that it's within the shadow requirements.

00:40:51--> 00:40:54

This guy says to me, make sure you announced it

00:40:56--> 00:40:57


00:41:00--> 00:41:03

asked him how much he goes, I'm giving her $1 million

00:41:04--> 00:41:19

Tjuta liar. He's not gonna give her $1 million. There's no chance he's gonna give her $1 million. He wants me to say on the mic, but I'm gonna give her a million dollars. And then the next 10 years will mafia gonna go he'll say You know what, you know, 10% Discount

00:41:20--> 00:41:30

kind of under a 20% discount. And then he'll say You know what, I will pay for the vacation but from your mouth part. And probably at the end of it, she might get a Subway sandwich out of it

00:41:36--> 00:41:37

Hello, Hola. Hola.

00:41:40--> 00:41:41

Hola, Malawi, Shatin.

00:41:44--> 00:41:45

Let me sell a lot. So I'm sad to

00:41:46--> 00:41:48

have the walima keep it simple.

00:41:50--> 00:41:52

A compromise, find a middle ground.

00:41:53--> 00:41:56

The beginning of that compromise will come

00:41:57--> 00:42:05

as the result of the conversation, the much needed conversation between the elders and of our of our community and the young ones.

00:42:08--> 00:42:13

There needs to be a middle ground conversation. What are we going to do? How are we going to do this?

00:42:16--> 00:42:17

Along with technology matters.

00:42:19--> 00:42:37

So allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then made the offering in one narration after he said to him, I told him one overshot and he said BarakAllahu laka thematic. May Allah give baraka in your Well, I'm gonna amend and offer the Allah Juan says, After that dua Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the world flipped,

00:42:39--> 00:42:41

money started pouring in

00:42:42--> 00:42:50

dunya Allah you're hotter or at any lower offer to Hassan that Aloka to an IG, the WHO that have been Offenbach.

00:42:52--> 00:42:54

After that day, my wolf flipped.

00:42:56--> 00:43:15

denier came * but at the dunya Alia, the material begin to pull into the lower part of our car to that point came that I knew that if I even picked up a stone, I had hope that our thought to I had hope and energy that data would have an effect that that I would find gold or silver under it.

00:43:16--> 00:43:17

That's how the money began to pour.

00:43:20--> 00:43:40

We'll come back to the commandment opener the Allah hawan and his generosity and how his wealth affected him or the lack of effect that had on him. We'll talk about that shortly. But before we get there, and also the Allah who won like the other companions, was by the side of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam throughout the Prophet's life.

00:43:41--> 00:43:50

In the Battle of butter of the Rahman and overthrow the Allah one, he fought courageously in the Battle of Muhammad, when the

00:43:51--> 00:43:52


00:43:53--> 00:44:09

turned to be against the Muslims. First half of the battle Muslims were on the upper hand and the second half of the battle, the battle flipped against them, and some of the companions begin to flee from the battlefield. The Quran mentions this.

00:44:11--> 00:44:21

Of the 100 over the Allah one was not one of them. He stood firm. He stood strong in his place. And when he came out of that battle, he was covered in wounds.

00:44:23--> 00:44:52

memberhub Rahim Allah Allah narrates over 20 wounds were inflicted on his body. And some of those wounds were so deep that a person can actually put their hand inside very sustained real injuries. Some narrations tell us that it was a result of these wounds that I've got from I'm an author of the Allah one then walk for the remainder of his life with the limp. He couldn't walk straight anymore because of the wounds that he had sustained in the Battle of God.

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would prepare armies

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

To be sent,

00:45:03--> 00:45:08

he would turn to the community of the Muslims and say to them that support these people, provide for them help them.

00:45:10--> 00:45:49

And in every one of these campaigns of the Rahman Ultra the Allah one was at the front. Not only was he a Mujahid a warrior himself not only did he wield the sword in defense of Allah and the Sunnah his serratus RAM and did not only did he put his own life on the line, and every one of those battles, but he supported them financially. And when they argue that his jihad on the financial front, his jihad in financing the Muslims, his struggle involved in playing his role in victory in the battlefield, when it came to his wealth may have been even greater.

00:45:50--> 00:45:59

Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returned to their homeland and Ofra the Allah hawan when it was time to give, and he was always available to give.

00:46:00--> 00:46:01

In one narration.

00:46:03--> 00:46:07

The Prophet of Allah on a sonata Salam encouraged the companions to donate

00:46:09--> 00:46:11

the amount of the Allah hawan went home.

00:46:13--> 00:46:19

Totally came back with 4000 coins. He presented them to Rasulullah sallallahu.

00:46:25--> 00:46:26

Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:46:28--> 00:46:34

asked him, What did you leave at home? Should I Messenger of Allah, I have 4000 in total.

00:46:35--> 00:46:39

I'm going to give 2000 here and I will leave 2000 for my family.

00:46:41--> 00:46:46

I have this all the wealth that I have. I'm going to give 2000 here, and I'll keep half of it for my family.

00:46:47--> 00:47:04

To that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made dua, Barak Allah who like a female our fate, or BarakAllahu, like a female insect. Allah subhanho wa Taala give baraka and what you've given me and may Allah subhanaw taala also give baraka in the wealth that you've kept behind

00:47:05--> 00:47:45

of the man in the opener, the Allah one when it came to the Battle of the Books, specifically, along with the Companions as everyone was donating. The Battle of the book was also known as Jason Austro. Because what Austro the Battle of great difficulty because at that time, the Battle of the book was the last major battle of the life of Rasulullah sallallahu. It was the last time they Bishop sort of went on an expedition himself after the husband in Gaza. Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihe, salam to book that battle was against the Romans. They came prepared, they were marching towards the Muslims, at least this is what the Muslims had heard. Armored right down to their ears and their teeth.

00:47:47--> 00:47:50

The bow, the journey was very far

00:47:51--> 00:47:53

very far from Madina Munawwara

00:47:55--> 00:47:58

you guys heard about this neon project that's going on right now. And Saudia,

00:48:00--> 00:48:30

the neon project, it's actually in the book. If I'm correct. I think it's in the book province Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was preparing an army to head out there. And the other thing that made this complicated was the Muslims in Madina Munawwara that specific year had less rain. So the markets were slower the produce that they would have generally in their fields wasn't at the same yield that they had expected for that year and they had received over the previous years.

00:48:31--> 00:48:39

It made things very complicated. I'm gonna have an orphan of the hola Juan he gave and gave and gave so much.

00:48:41--> 00:48:49

That honorable sobre the Allahu and said to him, that I think you've committed a sin and how much you've given, it seems like you left nothing at home. What about your family

00:48:56--> 00:49:01

in Neela, Abdur Rahman, Al Murthy Akiva, Hitman Pro, methodically Alicia

00:49:02--> 00:49:05

it's possible this man left nothing for his family at all.

00:49:07--> 00:49:14

So let me sort of long while he was still I'm asked him health are actually Alika che and the other man of the man did you leave anything at home for your family?

00:49:15--> 00:49:31

Or now I'm back to LA home at film him and talk to you that I have left for them better than what I have spent more than what I have spent an even better than that. Maybe some sort of come how much did you leave behind like if you've given this much today?

00:49:35--> 00:49:47

What did you leave behind? So he said Ma Allahu wa rasuluh home in a risk when hiring will agile I left behind with them the promise that will come of Allah and His Messenger

00:49:50--> 00:49:54

didn't leave too much money at home, brought it all here but I left a promise behind

00:49:55--> 00:49:57

and Allah subhanaw taala has promised we'll come to

00:50:01--> 00:50:03

This was at the beginning of the battle of Tobruk.

00:50:04--> 00:50:05

Allah subhanaw taala rewarded

00:50:06--> 00:50:15

in the battle itself in the Battle of the book, this activists that happened before it paid off in a very interesting way.

00:50:17--> 00:50:20

He gained an honor in this battle

00:50:21--> 00:50:24

that no one else has helped.

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

No one.

00:50:29--> 00:50:36

Not even say that Abu Bakr Siddiq is going to be Allah who won the great Sahabi at the Prophet of Allah or Omar will be alone with mana the Allah one.

00:50:37--> 00:50:39

Allah rewarded him how

00:50:40--> 00:50:41

they were traveling.

00:50:42--> 00:50:48

It was time for Salah, the Prophet of Allah was doing well who have the ramen and offer the Allah one

00:50:49--> 00:50:52

started the prayer and lead the companions.

00:50:53--> 00:51:04

When the visa Allahu alayhi wa salam came for prayer of the amount of the Oman one saw the Prophet of Allah so He began to move back. And then we sort of know who it was Saddam gestured, stay right there.

00:51:05--> 00:51:10

And for the first time, and the only time the Prophet of Allah prayed Salam behind us

00:51:14--> 00:51:37

he was the only one who led to a sort of loss that Allah Allah he will set him in prayer. I will book us to do the Allah one that var Salah that maybe saw Saddam came in, he moved back he didn't lead, the prophet led the renewal that prayer. And after the prayer was over, in one narration, the Prophet of Allah said that every prophet is led by someone from his ummah and Allah gave me that honor in the ramen, oh for the allawah

00:51:38--> 00:51:42

that he led us that Allah, you can't even begin to imagine.

00:51:43--> 00:51:45

If you were to look upwards to

00:51:46--> 00:52:02

glance at such a person's honor who led the profit insula, your habit fall off, you snap your neck, you won't be able to see that person's mom. This is Satan Adorama ignorant Oath of the Allah Who found on

00:52:07--> 00:52:11

when the prophets that Allahu alayhi wa sallam departed from this world,

00:52:13--> 00:52:18

of the heart of the Allah who unlike the other companions, experienced immense pain,

00:52:19--> 00:52:20


00:52:21--> 00:52:24

he was with the Prophet of Allah for all 23 years.

00:52:25--> 00:52:28

If you and I feel something, imagine him.

00:52:30--> 00:52:39

If we feel sad, when thinking about the Prophet of Allah, if we feel the absence of the Prophet of Allah in our lives, what about Satan or Abdul Rahman, an author of your loved one.

00:52:42--> 00:52:50

So, in order to make up for that gap that he felt in his chest, in order for him to continue to live that legacy

00:52:52--> 00:53:09

of Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam what he does next is amazing. He now takes his strength, his ability to earn wealth and channels it towards serving the Ummah specifically providing for the wives, which sort of lesson allottee so,

00:53:11--> 00:53:20

he basically says to them, to all of his wives or my husband, woman in our mothers, you all have my credit card here you go spend as you need

00:53:22--> 00:53:25

spending on you is like spending on the profitable law.

00:53:27--> 00:53:41

This became his top priority. He basically gave each of them a blank check credit card, you want ice cream, here you go, you want to go somewhere here you go, you want to buy anything, our mothers will be taken care of.

00:53:44--> 00:54:01

He would take them for hygiene whenever they desire to go their full expense was covered and not only that, but he would provide for proper transportation. Oh dish you will not walk or ride an animal you will sit in the carriage and you will be carried business class

00:54:03--> 00:54:06

you will be carried to mocha mocha Rama for your Hutch

00:54:07--> 00:54:08

full expenses

00:54:12--> 00:54:21

one time of the moment over the Ammar one, he sold one of his lands and as a result of that made 40,000 dinar

00:54:24--> 00:54:28

as a lot of money 40,000 dinar for that time, a lot of money.

00:54:31--> 00:54:40

So he distributed all 40,000 among some family. Some of them will have the rune and the rest of it, he gave it to the wives of a sort of loss that a lot. So

00:54:42--> 00:54:46

what we need is out of the Allah who received her share.

00:54:47--> 00:54:55

She was so overwhelmed. She asked Who sent this? They said to her, it was Abdurrahman and Oprah, the Allah one.

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

So then she said, that Rasul Allah said

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

Allahu Allah He was salam said, Only those people will show kindness and generosity to you speaking to his wives who are truly patient. He is from the sabido he is a patient person and to be said Allahu alayhi wa salam praised him in that statement

00:55:21--> 00:55:21

one time

00:55:24--> 00:55:31

up the ramen and open up the hola Juan had a caravan of trade that was returning back to Madina Munawwara

00:55:32--> 00:55:48

the caravan itself consisted of 700 animals, and each of those animals were loaded with possessions good and wealth. So think of 700 you all trucks loaded

00:55:49--> 00:55:58

with profit 700 700 minivans 700 cars entering with all of his profits from the trade.

00:56:02--> 00:56:23

I'm happy to have Allahu Allah in there. It's a hadith he says that when the caravan arrived in Madina Munawwara there was like a thumping sound Madina Munawwara was shaking. Imagine 700 animals all stomping at once and they're walking into Madina. Munawwara there was like this big thump sound there was a sound resonating through the streets and Madina Munawwara

00:56:25--> 00:56:38

I should have the Allah when I heard this. She said my heavy hit Raja, what's the sound in Medina? Okay, that read only now. This is the caravan of drama and often has returned

00:56:39--> 00:56:44

700 camels loaded with food and wealth.

00:56:46--> 00:57:00

So then she said to him, Barak, Allahu Allah Who female tahu for dunya whatsoever who phylloxera. May Allah give baraka and his wealth in this world, and also give him Baraka in the reward of the Hereafter.

00:57:02--> 00:57:10

Someone came and tore up the ramen and Oprah, the Allah one that I share the Allah Juana I heard this, and she made this dua for you.

00:57:13--> 00:57:35

He was so touched by her blog because you're the law was two folds. May Allah give baraka for what you have in the dunya and give you baraka and the reward in the hereafter. So the second part of that law, he picked it up as advice from her, that if she's saying that may Allah give baraka in the reward in the hereafter in order for me to gain that reward, I need to do something with this.

00:57:36--> 00:57:51

So he immediately said to Aisha with the low Anna, he rushed to her and said to her, that I make you witness in front of Allah, that all 700 animals with everything they have are feasts of Vietnam.

00:57:52--> 00:57:54

All of it is for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:57:58--> 00:58:02

I can continue with stories from his life of his generosity.

00:58:03--> 00:58:04


00:58:05--> 00:58:08

the point of reflection for us is where are we?

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

What state are we in?

00:58:13--> 00:58:21

How was it possible? Someone explained to me that institution and massages are closing down while houses are being built?

00:58:23--> 00:58:31

How is it possible that people are signing new leases on their cars? While our institutions are struggling?

00:58:33--> 00:58:46

Wearables Hearthstone, where are those mines gone? Where's that Imam gone? That massager they're saying that we need carpet and we need bathrooms and we need blue areas. It's not the Muslims don't have wealth, by the way.

00:58:48--> 00:58:51

It's that our priorities, unfortunately, are misplaced.

00:58:52--> 00:59:19

I fully appreciate the second side of this argument, which is maybe something we can discuss another time and that is that people feel uncomfortable these days because they feel there's a lot of mismanagement with the wealth of the OMA. So whole story itself, but we're not focusing on that. Today we're focusing on the legacy of the amendment alone. And that is about giving. Without question, that there is a Takata there is a need and the Muslim comes forward and he puts it in front of Allah.

00:59:20--> 00:59:24

He puts it in front of a suit allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that here I am to give

00:59:25--> 00:59:54

all that wealth of the man and over the Allah one. It didn't change him. That was an amazing thing about these companions that Allah gave them love and what made them different from us? Those of us who cite the example of Oh, from the Companions word, the wealthy likes the likes of the man under oath. No, it's not. I'm not a fan of your loved one. We quite conveniently cite their example as being wealthy companions, without making reference to what they did with that wealth and what legacy they left behind.

00:59:55--> 00:59:56

Talk about that to

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

Allah didn't just give them wealth.

01:00:00--> 01:00:13

They were Sahaba Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam last eyes locked on the Prophet of Allah for 23 years. And what they have learned was all luxuries in this life are on the backburner. The primary focus of this existence is on serving to be

01:00:17--> 01:00:29

happy again and this year Allah Managua that narrates incident near incineration. He says that if you came to the gathering of Abderrahman and open up the Hola, Juan, you couldn't tell him apart from his lips

01:00:32--> 01:00:33

couldn't tell them apart?

01:00:35--> 01:00:38

Can you tell him King apart from a butler?

01:00:40--> 01:00:41

In today's world?

01:00:43--> 01:00:46

Yes, now very clearly. Of course you can.

01:00:48--> 01:00:50

They dress a particular way.

01:00:51--> 01:00:54

They walk a particular way. There was a

01:00:55--> 01:00:56

Muslim King.

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

Not hundreds of years ago this happened just recently. It's in the news if you Google that you'll find it.

01:01:03--> 01:01:13

There was a Muslim king who recently traveled to a European country and insisted on having his own escalator flown in with him to get off of his plane

01:01:15--> 01:01:15

that could be

01:01:17--> 01:01:17

in here

01:01:19--> 01:01:20

how long would

01:01:23--> 01:01:24

I How would I want to go?

01:01:31--> 01:01:32

Where are we gonna go from here?

01:01:34--> 01:01:36

Where are those hearts gone? Where are those people going?

01:01:37--> 01:01:53

You don't need millions of dollars to be generous. The legacy of Barack Obama and Oprah the law one isn't just for those who have 10,000 20,000 5000 The legacy of Abdullah Han and author of The Allah one is giving priority to the deen over yourself

01:01:54--> 01:01:56

it's about feeling the pain of the OMA.

01:01:57--> 01:02:02

The legacy of of the harm and over the Allah one is to leave this world empty handed

01:02:04--> 01:02:18

where what you have is your legacy empty handed. What I mean by that is that what you have isn't to satisfy you. You understand that the wealth that Allah azza wa jal has given you is a tool it's a means to serve the ummah.

01:02:19--> 01:02:42

While you're living in this dunya you will look for different ways to serve the deen inshallah. Some will serve the deen through their Eva some will serve the deen through humanitarian efforts. Some will serve the deen through seeking knowledge and conveying it. But there are so many Muslims in our community who Allah subhanaw taala has given them wealth and their way to serve the deen is through wealth

01:02:43--> 01:02:44

is through giving.

01:02:46--> 01:02:51

But giving not with contingencies and with checks and with strings attached just given walk away.

01:02:52--> 01:03:05

Today's homebuyers such that if I make a $10,000 donation to the machine, now I have 10% share who the next Emir will be can only be appointed After I save for the next Amir is going to be that's not how this works. My friends, this is not how this deen is.

01:03:07--> 01:03:17

If you're giving for yourself, then make it clear and forfeit your reward in the hereafter. Most likely the Mossad won't take from you too, and neither should they. This is not a business. This is not the stock market.

01:03:19--> 01:03:23

Everything here, everything in this space is about alignment.

01:03:25--> 01:03:33

It's about the beam that you give and you walk away. But I made $100,000 donation, find your reward with Allah.

01:03:34--> 01:03:38

Not to lose sight of God to come with money when other don't destroy yourself.

01:03:40--> 01:04:15

Say that man and we're over the Allah one when he passed away when he left his dunya actually before I go to that, during the collapse of Abu Bakr, Siddiq or the Allah one Almighty Allah one, and even shortly during a period of mana the Allah and once kidnapper of the amount of Nurofen of the Allah one serve as a Mufti and Harvey, he passed verdicts and settled matters between people, a senior's hobby of the Prophet of Allah. He is one of the companions that was promised paradise at the tongue of Rasulullah sallallahu

01:04:16--> 01:04:22

he was present by the side of a suit Allah said Allahu Allah He was at the Grand they are 201

01:04:25--> 01:04:29

Whatever the commandment opener the Allah one was on his deathbed

01:04:31--> 01:04:33

he called all of his servants and slaves

01:04:35--> 01:04:36

and set them all free

01:04:40--> 01:04:41

and then,

01:04:43--> 01:04:49

he requested 400 dinar coins, 400 golden coins

01:04:50--> 01:04:53

to those that remained from the Isabell butter.

01:04:55--> 01:04:59

All the battery companions also for the battle of butter, he knew the Prophet of Allah love them

01:05:00--> 01:05:11

They were beloved to his messenger to the Messenger of Allah, and they had a special MACOM. So on his deathbed, he said to each of the hobbit brothers go and give them 400 gold coins, 400 dinars on my behalf.

01:05:12--> 01:05:18

What kind of either do who may attend at that time there were 100 of them alive. You can do the math.

01:05:20--> 01:05:25

Then Abdurrahman, Oprah, the Allah one, set aside wealth

01:05:26--> 01:05:34

before he distributed to his family, he took another portion out. He said this wealth will be given to the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu

01:05:35--> 01:05:37

give it to that, take care of them.

01:05:39--> 01:05:45

To that I shall have the Allahu Allah ha made dua for him. And she said sacaa Hula whom in subby

01:05:46--> 01:05:58

May Allah nourish you through the fountains of Jana, to the spring Seville island village Jana May Allah subhanaw taala nourishing through the springs and fountains agenda.

01:05:59--> 01:06:03

His whole life generosity, generosity and as he's lying on his deathbed

01:06:05--> 01:06:08

and then when it came to his family members

01:06:10--> 01:06:32

what kind of nice oh, who urban, he had four wives for Bella ruber through money. And because he had children, each collectively they read, they receive 1001 100 feminum in metadata, right. So they received a phone from admins, one eight, they received how much one eight, but because he had four wives, the 1/8 now must be distributed in

01:06:33--> 01:06:40

force. So babalawo Fulani, Allah, the hasa Kula hit him in Hoonah femenina. And

01:06:41--> 01:06:43

each of them received 80,000.

01:06:46--> 01:06:58

Each of them received 80,000. And that is from the you can do the math from there if you wanted to, if you really want it to, we just reverse engineer that at times four, and that's 1/8 of how much wealth you left behind.

01:06:59--> 01:07:02

That was what was left, actually that's how much was left after.

01:07:03--> 01:07:12

After the earlier distribution. Allah subhana what Allah gave him and he continued to give even though he was promised Jana virus that Allah said a lot is

01:07:14--> 01:07:35

and he wasn't some of you may think that maybe he was just known for his generosity, not to belittle that but maybe he was the generous one. He was a scholar. He was the Majapahit one honorable Hatanaka Allah one was on his deathbed and he appointed a committee of six people who were the candidates for the Philip after him one of those six people was who

01:07:36--> 01:07:48

say that I've dropped mine and I'll probably allow he stood to be the Khalifa and actually when he when it was time to elect this Khalifa someone actually came and said you shouldn't be Khalifa

01:07:50--> 01:07:58

I'm gonna find an Oprah the Allahu and said, I would rather be be headed than be Khalifa killed me first I won't be Salif.

01:08:01--> 01:08:08

He could have voted for one of his close relatives, that were also one of the candidates for Khilafah.

01:08:09--> 01:08:12

Remember how he points this out? However,

01:08:13--> 01:08:19

he like everyone else pointed towards say that off mahtim not found out the alone window and then became Halifa.

01:08:24--> 01:08:31

Even though he was so generous, even though he constantly gave in his life, this is the part that I want to say.

01:08:33--> 01:08:34

He never became too comfortable.

01:08:36--> 01:08:56

Never be too comfortable in life with what you're doing. Last week, I shared this narration in the story of Musab bin Ahmed or the Allah one. But as I wrap up today's session, I will share this story with you again. One time say that Abdurrahman, the author of the Allah one was fasting, and someone presented some food to him.

01:08:57--> 01:09:12

He looked at the food and he said Laqad Cotulla Musa Abner are made in Oahu a hydro mini for ma Wadjet and Allahu Allah Kofi Annan in Hatha razza who but rich Allah, when gotta delay he Budda Budda also

01:09:13--> 01:09:19

and the food was presented to him he started crying, and he said, Musa didn't omega the Allah one was martyred

01:09:20--> 01:09:22

in the Battle of God like we covered

01:09:23--> 01:09:27

and when he passed away we did not have enough Guffin to cover his body

01:09:30--> 01:09:31

that was my buddy

01:09:33--> 01:09:34

and today I have all this wealth

01:09:35--> 01:09:44

we're in Nila Astra near Pune tabula or Jira, Lana. I fear whatever all of my reward was given to me in this world and there's nothing really for me in the hereafter.

01:09:47--> 01:09:50

For Java, you have key and he continued to cry.

01:09:52--> 01:09:54

He just cried and cried and cried

01:09:58--> 01:09:58

what a man

01:10:00--> 01:10:03

promised paradise VirusTotal loss analyze

01:10:05--> 01:10:09

continued to serve as an inspiration to the Companions and

01:10:10--> 01:10:21

he didn't dip down one point in his quality at any point in his life to the point that even Abdullah Allah Allah Tala, the Allah want to point them in the philosophy committee. But I am telling you this is one of the gems.

01:10:24--> 01:10:27

And when it comes time for his burial,

01:10:29--> 01:10:35

Sodom who cost with the Allah one is the one that's carrying his body, the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

01:10:40--> 01:10:44

His Janaza Salah is led by a thermometer A follower of the Allah one

01:10:46--> 01:11:01

in the presence of all the great companions May Allah subhanahu wa taala elevate his mom and allow us to follow the example of the great legend and companion of the Prophet of Allah of the Amana alpha the Allah one.

01:11:03--> 01:11:07

Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to take inspiration from him.

01:11:08--> 01:11:09

See his love.

01:11:10--> 01:11:13

See how much he cared for the Prophet of Allah.

01:11:15--> 01:11:18

You know, when he became Muslim, his name wasn't even Abdul Rahman.

01:11:22--> 01:11:23

He had a different name.

01:11:25--> 01:11:29

The day he became Muslim Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called him up the Ramadan.

01:11:30--> 01:11:34

And now that was his new name for the rest of his life. Look at the Michigan mob.

01:11:35--> 01:11:41

Now Allah subhana wa Tada blesses said hola hola, hola. And I sent him home and I said I'm on eco Murata La Jolla.

01:12:23--> 01:12:24


01:12:34--> 01:12:37

oh all
