for having gathered us here today and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with the melodica and to cause his mercy and His suckiness to descend upon us, and to raise us with the Gambia. alaikum salatu salam, and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean

00:00:48--> 00:01:16

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in a hadith from Allah subhanho wa Taala yaku coop no Adam and Maddie, Maddie, the son of Adam, he says my wealth, my wealth. Well, hello, come in medica ill occulta for F Nita. And if it is there anything of your wealth that you own except that which you have eaten, and it becomes finished, it goes to the waist?

00:01:17--> 00:01:18


00:01:19--> 00:02:12

lieberson lobbies for ablator. Or there is certain clothes that you wore, and those clothes became tone, they became useless. You could not use them anymore. Oh, so that button does a doctor from beta. Or there is a sadaqa and a charity that you gave. So you took it forward with you into the grave? Have we ever thought of a question? That question is that our wealth is actually the interaction that we have with it. Our wealth is only that which we interact with, why there is so much money that you will receive, that you will never ever use, and it will leave your possession before you even use it on level. This is what this hadith is telling us that only what you ate, what

00:02:12--> 00:03:01

you wore, what do you use is yours, the rest never really ever belonged to you. But the end of that Hadith is profound. And that is what we should be focusing on today. All sudden putting a doctor from beta or in South Africa, a charity that you had you from your wealth it was in your possession, you gave it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala what happens to that it goes with you into your grave. That is what you will benefit from. There is a man that I know who recently visited one of his properties. This property was derelict, it was finished. People had ransacked it and gone inside, pulled out the cable from the wall, pull out the tiles of the floor. And what do you realize

00:03:01--> 00:03:51

is that you know what this property is valuable, which was a lot of money. But the value of it in the club will be worth more for me right now. Instead of getting the value of this property here, maybe I'll get a few, you know, $1,000 That's it. Rather send it forward to the alpha one lucky that men did exactly that. He gave that entire property as a charity. And a few weeks later he done a lot of work. What is your wealth, except for that which you have used all that which you have given for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. A person comes to LA Sula for the love while he will sell them or they come to the house of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they give a gift to

00:03:51--> 00:04:00

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. His families they receive that gift it's a piece of meat on on a bone.

00:04:01--> 00:04:46

So it should be a lot more than that takes that meat cuts it gives away most of it and keeps a little bit. So when Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam comes back he says that a What is this? He says, Look, this is what happened. And I've given away most of it. And I've kept a little for us and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam answer is profound, you know what he says? He says you have actually that which you have given away is that which you have kept. Meaning whatever you have given away is what will benefit you. The rest we only going to eat it and it will go to waste. There is no real benefit from it besides the fact that you eat and enjoy of it and it's over. But what you have

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

given away will remain forever. And this is the attitude that we should have to our wealth, especially in today's times where people are dropping dead one after the other

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

As we see janaza after janaza janaza after janas these people only took what they sent forward for themselves. We ask Allah subhana wa to Allah to bless us. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us big hearts that are able to give for his sake and only for his sake, I mean or sallallahu wasallam about a cat and a bee and why he was so happy as you may
