Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen illa Allah amin verbenas, serene Manasa Leona Sally Maha Tamil ambia even more celene Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi. Germaine along melesa Allah Allah Masha Allah who

00:00:23--> 00:01:13

hasn't either she Tessa hella, OBS sera la salle watch Ambleside Wahby canister in we thank Allah horrible evil jela for having gathered us here once again and we ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to surround us with the mela acre and to cause his mercy and His Sakina to descend upon us and to raise us with the NBR Allah him Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them, previously, we have discussed solaz will feel and saurashtra and today inshallah we will be discussing sort of our own and the word Alma own is very interesting, it means that which is very small, that which the people see as nothing, and Allah so kind of what Adam mentioned this at the end of the surah William

00:01:13--> 00:02:07

neuronal Maroon, and they prevent from giving that which is very small in assistance. So unless you kind of who attalla He begins by saying, are at a levy you can begin, do you see the one who rejects the Day of Recompense, a dean can refer to the dean which is the Dean of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But in this case, it refers to the day of piano, the day of judgment, do you see oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the one who rejects the Day of Recompense, the day of judgment, what does this person do? So Allah subhanho wa Taala is asking him to either physically look at this person, or contemplate and think about the attitude of such a person, so that he can lead the team.

00:02:07--> 00:03:01

So he is the one that drives away the orphan. He not only ignores the orphan, but he drives away the old orphan, he makes him seem very small in the sight of people. Why? Because he has rejected the Day of Judgment. When a person rejects the Day of Judgment, then they don't have any day of account that they are worried about, fearful about scared of meeting the maker. So they will do anything. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, For that Lika So, that is the one you have only a team. If we take a look at an orphan, then an orphan is very, very weak, we will come to realize that he has no power to defend himself, because his father has passed on before he reached the age

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

of majority. So a person who is extremely evil will take advantage of such a person, they will harm such a human being because they are weak. So they take advantage of this because they don't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala or the belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala is extremely weak. They don't care about the day that they will face the maker furtherly can lead a team when I hope Bo Allah Tamil miskeen and he does not encourage the feeding of the poor, neither does he feed the poor, nor does he encourage the feeding of the poor. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us that when a person does not have belief, then he will behave in a certain way. And when a person believes in

00:03:50--> 00:04:33

Allah subhanho wa Taala had a Muna Tanada hope be miskeen and why a team and what a sealer they will feed the people the food, they will feed the orphan food they will feed the poor person food and the imprisoned person food even though they love that food very much. When we take a look at food we want to eat it we want to enjoy it we want to partake of it. But when we believe in Allah subhanho wa tada and we believe that we will find that food with Allah subhanho wa Taala in the form of good deeds then we give for the sake of audible is that you will learn so will you

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

be miskeen and why a team and what a seal in the manual to mo calmly YG law we feed you only for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala learn resume in Kinshasa and what are shockula we do not want any recompense from you know do we want any tax from you? So when we give we give for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada not even thinking about what we are doing and this

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

Why the Hadith says that from amongst the seven who are protected on the day of piano shadid under the earth of Allah subhanho wa Taala will be a person who will give who had given in this dunya such that his left hand would not know what is right hand had spent. This is amazing. Sometimes we think how is this possible your left hand doesn't know what your right hand has spent, doesn't make sense to us. But in reality, today, if you really don't want to know what you have spent, you have some money in your pocket, take it out and give it without even looking at what you have given and for law, he alone will give you tenfold or even more in this dunya before the earth here. And we have

00:05:48--> 00:06:40

seen this from time to time people so many accounts we have heard they give $2 they get 200 back, they give $200 they give 2000 back so Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you it doesn't have to be in that ratio. Allah subhanho wa Taala had one law who you will die in fully Masha. Allah subhanho wa Taala increases for whomsoever He wishes. So this is the attitude of a believer, but the attitude of a disbeliever is very different. What I hope to Allah miskeen away lil masa Lin then Allah subhanho wa Taala says something very, very woeful to a person. And this is beware and wave wave is a valley in Johanna. So a wave for those who perform Salah. So when a person reads this match, they will

00:06:40--> 00:07:28

think how does this make sense? Someone who's performing Salah, a valley in jahannam for him doesn't make sense. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and levina who mon Sol at him sanghoon those who are heedless of the prayer, the time will the event comes and the time for the event goes in the time for Salah even passes and they have not performed their sada such a person Allah subhanho wa Taala has reserved a valley in jahannam for him. And this is why the mufa serien or the reciters say that when we read the way you do little muscle lean, then we should not finish our candidate. We should not stop our Salah our candidate, because it is as though you are saying the valley in

00:07:28--> 00:08:09

jahannam is for those who pray. No those who pray and they are heedless in the prayer or those who are heedless from the prayer altogether. So complete the statement for where you live mousseline alladhina whom Ancelotti hymns one then you want to make ruco It is okay for you to make record. But before that, try not to make rocor at Elmo Salim because you have not completed the statement. Now if a person is reciting the way lil mousseline alladhina mount Salatin himself Hoon, that is fine. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that because he just paused for a moment and completed the statement.

00:08:10--> 00:08:16

Then Allah subhanahu wa Tada. He says, a Latina, Latina whom you are

00:08:17--> 00:09:06

those who show others, they show others. So when they stand up for sada then even if they have managed to stand up for that Salah. It is not for Allah subhanho wa Taala it is for the people to show someone. Look at what I'm doing. I'm so pious, I'm so religious. That is the wrong attitude. You know, one of the Imams of the harem, and it was very interesting. He was being interviewed. And they asked him they said, sure if your voice is beautiful, your voice is amazing. We love this voice of yours. How is it that you read with such beauty in your voice? What about the 1000s of people that are behind you? Don't you think of them? And he says one lucky when I say Allahu Akbar, then it

00:09:06--> 00:09:51

is me and Allah subhanho wa Taala It is me and Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is why the hudy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a Salah to me Allah jewel Mohammed Salah is the Mirage you know the Mirage that the prophet SAW Selim and the took, that is your message, because you can meet Allah subhanho wa Taala in your Salah. You find two people reading Salah next to each other. One is with Allah and the other one is on the ground. So you can literally fly in your Sunnah. If you think of Allah subhanho wa Taala or Buddha law her Kanika tala worship Allah subhanho wa Taala as though you see him for inlanta kuntala

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

for in Iraq, so if you are not able to see Allah subhanho wa Taala in your Salah. You

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

Man is not have that level, they know that he sees you. So this is the attitude of a believer and this is how he behaves in his Salah, thinking about Allah subhanho wa Taala, thinking about the day that you will meet him, not bothered about what the next man will think of him. And if you are to think about other people, and what they will think about you thinking that they will assume that I am righteous and pious, then Allah Subhana, who Allah on the day of Ghana, he will tell you go to that person for your reward, isn't it that you were so bothered about what he thought about you, then go to him for your reward, your reward is with him. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, to make

00:10:39--> 00:10:42

us sincere, and to purify our hearts, I mean,

00:10:43--> 00:11:33

so Allah subhanho wa Taala says, When our own our own, and they prevent that which is very little, something very small, you are sitting, for example, to eat, and someone comes by and asks you for a small bite of food, and you cannot give them that much. Or perhaps your neighbor asked you for a pot to borrow on X to borrow. And that small thing, that means nothing, you will lose nothing. If you give them the pot, you will get it back as a pot. Nothing will be lost. Well, in our own our own. They prevent the people from getting even that much. Can I borrow your pen to just write something? No, no, no, you can't take. But why did you refuse to give him? Did you lose anything by giving him

00:11:33--> 00:12:20

the pin. So this is what a person does when they don't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala because such a person begins to think that I've lost my ink. It's nothing. It's nothing, yet you begin to think that I've lost it. Why? Because you believe is solely in this dunya It has nothing to do with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And interestingly, we talk about pots and pans, there was a lady in one of the cities of Saudi Arabia. And she one day decided that I want to give out the spot to my neighbor, and that neighbor will use it. So she the neighbor took the pot used it and returned it to her after some time someone came and asked for the pot again, she gave the pot out again. And then she

00:12:20--> 00:13:13

realized that, you know, let me make this work for Allah subhanho wa Taala I will take this and give it and whoever wants to use it can use it and then return it and it will be for Allah subhanho wa Taala even after I die. So when she died, one of the richest people in that nation decided that I want to buy this, and I will buy it for a million dollars or a million real I cannot remember the exact figure. So he bought that pot for such a large sum of money. And that money was then taken and put into a building and that building was contributing towards good causes. This woman died. She didn't even realize that this is what will happen to that little side of us. So let me let my roofie

00:13:13--> 00:13:55

she never think something is very small for you to do you know $2 in bond notes will mean nothing, I can't give it to this person. Leave a think like that. Even that $2 means something with Allah subhanho wa Taala so whatever you are able to take out. Imagine Where did this woman think that she would have a building in her name and sadaqa would be given from that building when she gave that pot out for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the right attitude and to grant us the ability to believe in him and the last day I mean, well sal Allahu wa seldom al Baraka ala nabina Muhammad, he was a big marine
