Bismillah Alhamdulillah Allah Allah Allah Ameen ob Hina, studying
cumbia even more serene Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi as you marry a love medicine lady Lana, Georgia who wanted to Jasmine has an assembler of BS similar
kind of story with a lot of bullets that you will enjoy for having gathered us here on this beautiful day of Friday. And we ask Allah subhana wa tada to surround us with the Mullah he can and to cause his mercy and His Sakina to descend upon us, and to raise us with the MBR Alico Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them. I mean,
when it comes to money, then human beings love this very much. They love Well, they love to gather. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, was to hit Boonen mela Jemima and you love wealth, a very great love. And Allah subhanho wa Taala also says
takato has to munakata that the gathering of the world has distracted you until you have visited the graves
and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions in a hadith from all Jabu Abdullah Javi Allahu anhu, who narrates from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mythology to Mina for Santa who did not know who
a man died from amongst us. So we watched him and we perfumed him, and we put him into a coffin or attain a be here Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we came to him. We came with him to Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you suddenly realize that he performed Salah upon him.
So he took a few steps forward. Well,
then he turned around and he said, Hello, he does he have any debt? For good man and we all sort of love. So we said yes, messenger of Allah takano Salim.
He became sort of pseudo masala while he was Finland. He stopped and he said, performance Allah upon your companion photometer Abu Qatada, so Abu Qatada was then he stood up he says, I take responsibility for this debt of knees. Because Allah Allah wa alayhi wa sallam, but Olivia, hurry Mahaprabhu bury me.
Are you sure that you are taking this debt upon yourself? The one who has been the money has been loaned from he is completely viewed his heart will be fulfilled. Are you sure of that? And the dead person is free of this debt for Khalid Abu Qatada. So Abu Qatada says not Amira, sudama Yes, O Messenger of Allah. So first, let me say Rasulullah sallallahu I think he will send them performed Salah upon him, for them Academy.
So when the next day came, then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him man, Father Dena Rama, what happened to the two gold coins that this dead person owed? Did you pay them? So bukata says in number two fear mcrc Rama he only died yesterday or messenger of Allah. So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kept quiet. Abu Qatada comes back the next day and he says,
to whom I also love, I gave those out those to Dina that were left to give for the dead person. I went and I paid them off. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says something that should make our hair stand on end. He says,
now you have combed his skin for him leaving this person was in torment. This person's skin was warm. It was hot, from 2d to gold coins that he owned,
to the noun to gold coins that he owed. He was being punished. He had a
To maintain his grave, yet Abu Qatada had said, I have taken responsibility of this.
So, the reality of it
the reality of debt and the reality of wealth, is that yes, we love this world very much. Yes, we love this wealth in a great way. But when it comes to debt that we have taken Remember to pay your debt back, have an intention to pay your debt back. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will help you pay that debt back. And if you are able, then don't even take it in the first place. Imagine this man had only two gold coins, two gold coins. It's Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says some new Allah sahibi come perform Salah come your companion. He didn't say my companion, said perform Salah upon your companion. Why? To show a distance between him and that man that yes, he is my companion.
But today I will show you that there is a distance between us perform Salah upon your campaign.
Today we take money from you. We borrow 1000 10,000 15,000. And you find that we never ever mentioned that to that person. And the person we borrowed from is shy. He has shame to us. So we keep quiet about it knowing that you won't ask for it. What will happen? Are you ready to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala
Manasa is the one who takes the wealth of people you read to
and he wants he intends to pay it back at the law war I'm alone some kind of war to either will pay that debt back woman aka URI to Islam.
And the one who takes yet he tends to destroy it. Get rid of that wealth. Don't not to pay back. Atlas will love Allah subhanho wa Taala will destroy him as well. Not his life, Allah subhanho wa Taala will destroy that person. Why? Because when you took you borrowed, knowing that I don't want to pay this money back. I don't want to give this person his hat back. If Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was here today, and we knew that you didn't give that wealth to the person and you had died, we would have not performed Salatu janaza upon you love work well. Think about this. This is the right of the people. When you take some money, take it with a sincere intention and some of
the aroma. They go as far as saying that if you took it with a sincere intention, you will not be able to pay back before you die.
And you die you met a man who can have what Allah like that Allah will pay back for you and He will not take away any of your good deeds and give it to that person. He will not take any of that person's bad deeds and put it onto your scale because of the intention in the heart. You see the difference between the one who has an evil intention and the one who has a good intention?
in Allah Allah.
Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not look at your
pictures the way you are. The posture, the stature that you were created, you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala voila Kim Young guru Isla kulu become American, but he looks at your heart and you will deed if your heart is sincere when you take that wealth. The minute you have it. Hey, brother, I've got $100 of your money. Please take it back. Hey, brother, I've got $1,000 of your money before he even asks you. Why do we wait for the man to come and say Brother What happened to that wealth of mine that you borrowed? And you promised, you know, a pseudo loss Allah while he was settling,
he would actually seek refuge mineral, honey well Muslim in his Salah. He would seek refuge from sin and from the debt in Salah. So one of the companions of the a lot more and
he heard Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying this again and again again and again. So he asked him makara Mantis a zoom in another one. He says you asked for a lot of refuge from death in the first place, taking it in the first place. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in an MA he the man had deafness and cancer. What even what are deaf
us laugh, that when this man who takes a debt, when he speaks, then he will lie. And when he promises he will break that promise. Brother, I promise you Come on in, I'll give you back your money. You never hear of that for years and years.
What kind of man do you have? Do you really believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala, you should question yourself, you know what you've done, and the least that you can do, you've promised that a date is coming, when I will pay this back. You cannot fulfill that debt at that date, then go to the man and say, brother, I've taken your wealth, I've taken your money, but I could not pay back. I cannot pay it back right now. Please give me some time. And as soon as you have some wealth, go and give him at least part of that debt, chipping away at it. This is proving the intention that you had in your heart to pay back that money. But if you had no intention in the first place, remember the words of
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam at lava lava, Allah will destroy you. And when Allah has destroyed you then want to have in your life. What do you have in your life? Do you think you will benefit from that wealth that you have eaten of this person? Absolutely not. And this is a disease in community. You know, some people actually has money of their own. They have enough money to buy a car to buy a home to go and you know, go for holiday, but they will go and take a loan in order to go to that holiday in order to buy that car. What kind of attitude Do you have towards debt? What if you drop dead? And so Pamela, it just came to my mind death is very close to death. When you are
dead, and you have a debt, what will you do?
How will you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in a hadith
a human monitoring a uma a new module in a 10 minute memory laser field CD a new idea in a
tomato LMU de la la palma haoma pa Matteo who has done any man who take some wealth from another man he takes some
sorry any man who marries a woman and he has promised that woman a man which is either high or it is low. And then he dies without paying that money to the woman. He will meet to lunch to kind of water Allah whilst he is a zombie, a fornicator
and then the Hadees continues.
Humala Julie is Tatiana Dana,
now you read a new de la sahibi he had
a de la De
La Hoya who was sorry, the one who takes a debt. He takes a loan from someone
and he does not intend to pay that back. And he dies having taken that loan
from that person. Not having paid it back. lufia mahabhava said he will meet a lump sum Canada to Allah wild he is in the state of being a thief
a loved one. This is enough for a man who believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala who believes in the last day to understand that when I take a dip then I should pay it back and I should have a sincere intention to pay back. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you
owe you have believed when you take a debt to a fixed time, that to mow, then write it down. And this is what you should do when someone comes to you asking to borrow some money. This is the flip side of the coin. Someone has come to you asking to borrow some money and write it down.
One year to buy in.
And one of you should write with justice. One of you who knows how to write we should write with justice, what
to do and we want to move
has been told to write letting not refuse to write, like how Allah subhanho wa Taala taught him to write to write it down. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and bear witness upon that as well. So you know that this is owed to this person, these are the witnesses. And this is the document, what happens? Sometimes we have a misunderstanding, someone comes, Hey, brother, I really need some money. You don't talk about what kind of a transaction that is, you just say okay, here's the money rather take it. In your mind. That was literally a loan that you gave him if he thought that it was money given to him for free to take and eat and continue with his life.
That is why Allah subhanho wa Taala is protecting you from the beginning, you have taken some money, write it down, you know exactly whether this is a debt to be repaid, or I don't need to repeat. So when someone comes to you and borrows money, and he can not pay back at the time, when it is owed back, then don't take interest, because this is how long you cannot take interest in return for it. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says to us, or human level radula in some kind of either that Allah subhanho wa Taala will have mercy on a man who is easy going when he sells some kind of injectable, some kind of tea that he is easygoing when he buys and he is easy going when he takes
his debt back. Because you are in a position to be able to loan money. When you have mercy upon someone, Allah subhanho wa Taala will have mercy upon you. So has mercy on that person, give him some more time to pay, perhaps he will pay that if you want to take him to the courts and put him in jail, he will not be able to pay that loan back from where he is languishing in jail. He will not be able to pay that. So give him time, put pressure on him in different ways. Try and ask him Hey, brother, now I've given you time. I've given you one month, two months, three months, five months, 10 months a year. Now it is time to pay your own bank bill to people that he respects us them to put
pressure on him. Yes, get your money back, get your heart back, get your wealth back. But try to have mercy upon this person. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will have mercy upon you. In these difficult times. In our country. We know that people are suffering, people are going through problems. If you have known a person a paltry amount of money, and it means nothing to you, then try to forgive that person try to let him go. Because ultimately, you don't want to meet a lawsuit can have more data with that person only knew something but that person, you know, wanting to having to give you something had you forgiven him in this dunya unless you can have what Allah will forgive
you in the mailbox. You can have more data Allah forgive us. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to pay back our debt and to take them seriously. I mean, also Allah who was Elena robotica Allen Amina Muhammad Ali, he was on big money.
