Sometimes when we give charity we don't give our best. We don't we give the clothes that we don't want to wear, we give the food we don't want to eat. Even the money that we give is often the change in our pockets we don't want to carry around.

And those are the people often known as annasophia. They lived in the masjid, underneath the sofa underneath the ceiling of the masjid. And some of the Sahaba would give them charity but some of them that charity that they would give is they would give them the hardened

00:00:45--> 00:00:56

dates, the old dates, the dates that are difficult to eat, they would find those dates and give those dates away for charity. Because of this, Allah Subhana Allah revealed this verse.

Subhana Allah, this verse shows us the dignity and the empathy that we should have towards the poor. Allah subhanho wa Taala. It says don't give them from the things that you wouldn't take yourself in Latin told me the Wolfie Allah says that you would only take these dates and eat them yourself. If you were blindfolded, there's no way that you would take it and eat it otherwise, unless parents either say don't give the poor the food that is so beneath you that you would never, you know, take for yourself. Rather, when the person gives the charity, they have to realize that not only is this a transaction between them, and between the poor person, it's a transaction between you and Allah

00:02:25--> 00:03:05

subhanaw taala first and foremost, I showed you a long way on how the wife of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, when she would give charity people saw her taking the money and putting perfume over it. They said to her, why are you doing this? She said because it falls in the hands of a law before it falls in the hands of the needy person. So Pamela, she saw her charity as being a transaction between her and a lot first and foremost, before it's even involved the person who's in need. And so she's saying this, this money is going to be taken and accepted by Allah first before it's accepted by the person who is poor. So she wanted to make it as beautiful and as excellent as

00:03:05--> 00:03:38

possible when she gave for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ever will tell how the Allah one, he had a beautiful garden, a great garden full of springs and trees and fruits. And he because you hear this verse wanted to give it away for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala so he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said I'm giving you this entire garden subpanel I'm giving this away for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and he said to the Prophet, if I could give it in secret, I would mean it's such a big garden, people will know if it changes ownership. He said if there was a way for me to give it secretly

00:03:38--> 00:03:54

while nobody knew I would give it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet sallallahu wherever you send them, congratulated him and said oh, I will give it to the poor amongst your own family. And because of the sacrifice of embleton Harold the Allah when Allah revealed another verse in the Quran

00:04:13--> 00:04:35

Law heavy rd that Allah Subhana Allah says you will not achieve piety until you give out of the things that you love.
