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

He

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

will be in a serene

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

serene Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi adjumani in a loving manner.

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

assembler of BS in what I

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

will hire will be can we send commands to Panama tala or have been gathered us here today. And we ask Allah subhana wa tada to surround us with the melodica and to cause his mercy and His Sakina to descend upon us, and to raise us with the MBR aleikum wa Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean,

00:00:47--> 00:01:41

Allah subhanho wa Taala has created the wealth that we have in our lives, the wealth that human beings trade with the wealth that human beings do on a day to day basis with and this wealth, Allah subhanho wa Taala put a love in the hearts of human beings for it. So the human beings Love, love wealth so much, that you find that every single day, people go out to work early in the morning and come back late in the evening, in order to earn a few dollars, a few pounds, you find someone going out and toiling in the sun, working extremely hard in earn in order to earn those dollars. And those bronze you find another person who goes out and he sits behind a computer screen for the entire day

00:01:41--> 00:01:56

until his eyes become red and he is bogged down by that work that he is doing in order for what in order to achieve a few dollars, a few pounds. So it goes to show the love that human beings have for money. Now.

00:01:58--> 00:02:10

This is not something wrong. And this is not something bad. This is not something evil. But Allah subhanho wa Taala explains this to us in the foreign world to hip bone and man I know

00:02:13--> 00:02:48

what you love whilst a very great love, a very severe love you love to be extent do you know what Jen means in Arabic. And German means when you have a lake that is empty, a pond that is empty and you have the rain that comes down and it falls this pond to the extent that it becomes full. That is what Jen means. So when Allah subhana wa Taala told the Arabs to hit more than man, you love wealth. Corbin Jemima, a very great love, they had a picture of what this meant.

00:02:50--> 00:03:40

For Sunil must have a lot more I think he was setting themselves low and malignant adema ydm mytho hubin. That is the son of Adam had one value full of gold. I have Bettany akuna, who was young, someone would think that this sort of Adam, when he gets a value full of gold, then that gold is too much for him. There are parts of that value that you will never access you will never use, you will never perhaps even see that well. So what does also the loss of a loved one, tell us that I have been the akuna who were the know the son of Adam will not be continued, he will not be happy, he will not be at ease. He will love to have another Valley full of gold as another emulation of

00:03:40--> 00:03:49

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues to say that if he was to achieve that second many full of gold laptops in a Hema,

00:03:50--> 00:03:56

you would have actually asked for another third one to in addition to the two that he had already received.

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

And then also lots of a lot more I think he will send them gives us the reality of life.

00:04:04--> 00:04:12

He gives us in the next statement that comes he presents to us the stark reality of life. And he says, what a man

00:04:13--> 00:04:40

Electra and nothing will fall on the mouth of the son of Adam, except for us. Do you know why nothing will fill his mouth except for dust, because when he's in his grave, and the walls that are around him are made of mud, then that gold will be of no value to that silver will be of no value to him. Now you will begin to think about the currency of the earth via good and bad deeds.

00:04:42--> 00:04:44

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Do you know

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

what it has been beautified? For the people the desires mean unnecessary from the women folk one penny and from the children one cannot be removed and from the huge and vast amounts of wealth

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

The people gather in a Data Viewer from the gold and the silver. One haven was a woman and the marked horse

00:05:09--> 00:05:20

with an arm and the capital, one house and you find that the plantations are beautified for human beings, but what does Allah Subhana Allah say, at the end of this day,

00:05:21--> 00:05:22

that become a TA.

00:05:25--> 00:05:28

That is the enjoyment of the life of this world.

00:05:31--> 00:05:39

And Allah subhanho wa Taala with him, he has that which is the best of both worlds. So the question is,

00:05:42--> 00:06:14

on one hand, we have that image, which is the temporary enjoyment of this life. And on the other hand, we have that which is permanent and forever, it will last forever and ever and ever. So the question is, what would we like to do? Would we like to sell that which is temporary in order and in return for that which is everlasting? Or would we like to sell that which is everlasting? In return for that which is temporary?

00:06:16--> 00:06:37

So the choice is ours and Allah subhana wa Taala has lifted to us Yes, that love of wealth is there, but will you compromise your relationship with Allah subhana wa tada in order to earn a gold and a silver coin in order to earn $1 and a pound? That is the question that we've got to ask ourselves.

00:06:38--> 00:06:41

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:06:43--> 00:07:33

say at the island mercies a man, a time will come upon the people that are in bed in mountain mill. Man, a man will not be worried where he got his wealth from. I mean, a calorie Amina Callum whether it was from Helen, or it was from Harlem. So today, let us ask ourselves that do we really care where we got our sustenance from? Does it matter to us? Do we ask ourselves in the first place? Did I earn this money in a hallowed manner? Or did I earn it in a column? And if we do not care about that, they will love you. This is a sign of fear. And we have become living and walking signs of piano because we don't even care whether we are eating halon or whether we are eating Pelham live.

00:07:33--> 00:07:40

So how the hell are we alone are they cared so much that abubaker acidic will be a loved one who had the slave.

00:07:41--> 00:08:26

And he would send the seventh out and he would go and work for him. And perhaps one day you would work as a carrier of water The next day, he would try and help people to you know, carry the goods around or do something of that nature. And he would come back with some food or some wealth for a buck and while the loved one and at the end of the day, a robot can have a lot more and more take this and he would eat from that one. So one day, the servant came back and he put food forward for Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu to eat. And he began to eat immediately sit between them, and he began to eat. So the servant looks at him and says, usually when I bring you food, you asked me, What did you

00:08:26--> 00:09:11

do today? How did you earn this wealth today? But today you didn't ask me. So Baba cannot be a loved one who tells him he says okay, so how did you earn the web? So he says, Well, today I went out. And I began to look for work. And as I was moving, I passed by a people whom I had done some fortune telling for in my days of January, I was not yet a Muslim. I didn't know how to do this fortune telling it was how I am in the first place. But it was my days of Gemini. I was not a Muslim yet. So I did this fortune telling. And these people after I had done it for them, they told me we don't have any money for you right now. Come another day, and we will give it to you. So today I passed by

00:09:11--> 00:09:16

those people, and I asked them about the money that they owed me. And they gave me this food in return.

00:09:17--> 00:09:35

So the alarm rang. He looks at him and he's wondering, and he says, Do you mean to say I ate something of heroin. And it was just a morsel of food that he had eaten, and he begins to put his finger into his throat trying to remove that morsel of Qur'an from his belly.

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

And the people around him tell him but why are you doing this? It was only one morsel of food. So he says, Well, my niece and nephew Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a call. He said well Lonnie, I heard was sudo masala. Why don't you send them say my number 10 insert him for now all be that which has been grown and nourished by half

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

Then the fire is more deserving of that piece of flesh. So if it meant that I was to die trying to take out this morsel of food, I would have done so.

00:10:11--> 00:10:34

This was the Sahaba hobby a lot more than one. And then it is said he continued to do so until he removed that which was from his stomach. And he ensured that he had nothing in common in his body. This was Abu Bakr Siddiq radi Allahu anhu, look at how careful he was with the food that we ate. I'm going to be a loved one who wants to receive some

00:10:36--> 00:11:20

oil from the moon in a sham Mara, we have a lot more. So this oil was sent by Maria and he said that look, what you've got to do is sell it to the people. And whatever you get put it into the treasury of the Muslim. So Ramon de la Mora, who sat there and as people came, he began to give them from the vessels that were they pour into their vessels. And he would ensure that when it came to an end, he made sure that every drop was, you know, squeezed out as far as possible. And then you would put the vessel on to the side. So after he had completed two or three vessels in this manner, and people were buying five times 10 denims, he would take it, put it into the wealth of the muslimeen put it

00:11:20--> 00:11:32

into the wealth and the treasury of the muslimeen. He looks to his right, and he sees his son sitting there, and His face is shining, and he has his hair is shining. So he tells me it

00:11:33--> 00:11:58

is it that you use some of that oil. So he says yes. So does this mean in a way did you get it from so his son tells him that I took the vessel that was left and I passed my hand over it. And then I put it onto my face and put it onto my head it was going to waste anyways. So ameerul momineen becomes very scared and worried and he says today, you know, maybe it will be what?

00:11:59--> 00:12:19

And Quinta Villa del halifa. He says that you are actually taking this oil without paying for it because you are the son of the halifa. And you became angry with him and he took him to the barber and shaved his head off completely, and said that at least I will not have to answer for your hair on the day of

00:12:20--> 00:12:37

this was the attitude of the Sahaba the Allahu anhu to the wealth that went into the amount to the wealth that they closed, close themselves with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in Allah. Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is pure.

00:12:39--> 00:12:44

And he does not accept anything except if it is pure, are in the law. Meaning

00:12:46--> 00:12:57

and Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala has commanded the believers to do that which he has commanded the MBR Elena salatu salam to do to do with and then he read the ayah

00:12:58--> 00:13:12

Yeah, you have no Sudoku Mina. Oh missing just eat from that which is pure water metal solid, and do good deeds in nibi mucha meluna Irene, indeed I am knowledgeable and I know of everything that you are doing.

00:13:14--> 00:13:23

And then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kuma.com en la jolla then he mentioned a man up to suffer. He takes a long journey.

00:13:25--> 00:13:34

At the end of that journey is dusty and he's disheveled. You can see that this man is tired. He's been affected by the journey in a great way.

00:13:36--> 00:14:26

To My name is Amalia poo Yama, brb. When he raises his hands to the sky, and he says, Oh my god, oh my god, calling now to Allah subhana wa Taala This is a time of acceptance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says one more time Oh, hello Armand. But his food is how long a woman vessel will how long and his clothes are how long would he have been halloumi and he was nourished by that which was how long to use dejavu Li daddy. So where will such a person be responded to from taking note how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not say that Allah subhanho wa Taala will not respond to this person, but he gives it in such a an emphatic manner that he says where will such a

00:14:26--> 00:14:34

person be responded to from meaning he is not going to be responded to from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let him seek from other beings.

00:14:36--> 00:14:38

What happens when a person eats holla

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

and what happens when a person with

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

their entire body becomes calm and then they want to connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala because he's being nourished by haha. So they want the connection with Allah subhana wa Taala yet they have placed a barrier between them and Allah subhanho wa Taala themselves.

00:15:00--> 00:15:25

So it affects everything. You find that all of a sudden your actions or two words harm you or doing harm in your life. You are pushed towards that which is harm you had some good connection with Allah subhana wa Taala that connection is cut. All of a sudden you find that you're no more reciting the Quran you no more going to the masjid your normal eating your salad. Well, what happened? Something how long went into

00:15:27--> 00:16:12

00:16:12--> 00:16:23

will come on the day of pm and he will have you will be given a sward and he will be told that you fought Allah subhanho wa Taala in the dunya so fight Allah subhanho wa Taala here.

00:16:24--> 00:16:45

Imagine what kind of a reaction a person will have on the day of pm when they see Allah subhanho wa Taala and we are being told to fight Allah subhanho wa Taala This is why the Riba and haram earnings are so dangerous, we should try to ensure that all of our earnings are had

00:16:46--> 00:17:18

and in this manner, we will meet Allah subhana wa tada with a clear record, at least we can see that we ate that we just had we looked for that which was pure and good. And we follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to purify our earnings and May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant is the ability to have a step up to the extent where we would place a barrier between us and his punishment. I mean, what's on the level was Elena robotica and Amina Muhammad were earning he was like big money.
