00:00:14--> 00:00:15

We move on

00:00:17--> 00:00:17

to the next.

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

And

00:00:23--> 00:00:24

then it's parable.

00:00:26--> 00:00:30

And the parables that come after it, again in total Baccarat

00:00:33--> 00:00:35

are all on one team.

00:00:37--> 00:00:40

And that is the theme of a circle

00:00:41--> 00:00:42

of charity.

00:00:44--> 00:00:50

And this actually starts from verse number 254 in Surah Al Baqarah

00:00:51--> 00:01:11

and so in in verse 254, the verse that comes right before ayatul kursi Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you're Latina and an unfair Kumi merasakan according to one lab fee when a hula when Ashoka will Cafiero llama volleyball addresses the believers, oh you who believe

00:01:13--> 00:01:31

it and vehicle spend giving charity from what we have given to you before a day comes in which there will not be a single dealing no bargaining, nor any friendship, nor any intercession.

00:01:34--> 00:01:39

And so from this verse onwards, we have the theme of sadhak.

00:01:41--> 00:01:49

And then the first parable that we have here is verse number 261. Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:01:51--> 00:01:53

metallurgy

00:01:55--> 00:01:55

una

00:01:57--> 00:02:06

de la he can utterly have that in that said there is no deal fee coolies

00:02:07--> 00:02:07

Gulati

00:02:09--> 00:02:14

to have the, whoa hoo, boy Are you fooling me?

00:02:19--> 00:02:19

See,

00:02:23--> 00:02:26

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, the messenger,

00:02:27--> 00:02:37

the parable, the example of those who spend their wealth in the cause of Allah, in the way of Allah

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

is like

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

a seed of grain,

00:02:43--> 00:02:48

which grows seven spikes, or seven years.

00:02:49--> 00:02:52

In each spike is 100, green.

00:02:54--> 00:03:06

And a lot multiplies his reward even more from for whomever he wishes. And a lot is worse, you're on a limb, all encompassing and knowing.

00:03:08--> 00:03:11

And so here in this parable, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:13--> 00:03:24

compares the charity that you give, for the sake of a loss of Hannah who went to Hana, Allah compares it to a seed of grain

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

that you plant in the ground.

00:03:28--> 00:03:29

And so

00:03:31--> 00:03:35

the people of Medina because Surah Baqarah

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

was revealed in

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

Medina, in the Medina stage.

00:03:44--> 00:03:46

And the people of Medina

00:03:47--> 00:03:48

they were into agriculture.

00:03:51--> 00:03:54

Which is why Allah subhanho wa Taala now gives them a parable

00:03:56--> 00:03:57

that they can relate with,

00:03:59--> 00:04:03

as opposed to the people in Mecca who were into business.

00:04:04--> 00:04:07

And they were business minded. Right.

00:04:08--> 00:04:11

That's why they were even referred to as correct

00:04:12--> 00:04:14

the word that comes from licorice,

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

which is, you know, coins.

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

So, the people of Netcat were more business minded.

00:04:24--> 00:04:25

And

00:04:26--> 00:04:36

the people of Medina were more into farming and agriculture. And that's why we have Allah subhanho wa Taala giving us such examples.

00:04:37--> 00:04:46

And this is not the only example we have many other examples that we're going to come across of parables that are luggages that the people can relate to.

00:04:47--> 00:04:51

We have the example that comes in Surah t Brahim of

00:04:52--> 00:04:53

the tree.

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

What is the parable of the tree or the good word? A lot compares it to a good tree

00:05:01--> 00:05:04

And what is the parable of an evil word?

00:05:06--> 00:05:07

Allah compares it to a battery.

00:05:09--> 00:05:11

And also, as we're going to see,

00:05:12--> 00:05:13

in the next couple of parables,

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

Allah mentions gardens.

00:05:19--> 00:05:19

And,

00:05:20--> 00:05:25

you know, the rain that falls from the sky, and produces fruit and so on and so forth.

00:05:28--> 00:05:38

And so in this parable, Allah subhanho wa Taala compares the charity of the believer, to a seed of green that is planted into the ground.

00:05:40--> 00:05:47

What happens when you put a green or a corn seed

00:05:49--> 00:05:56

because here, it could refer to any kind of seed that produces these kinds of spikes or eras.

00:05:57--> 00:06:10

Among the Arabs in the Arabian Peninsula, what they were, what they were aware of, in terms of agriculture and farming, was wheat, and barley.

00:06:14--> 00:06:19

But it could refer to anything that produces these kinds of spikes when it comes to farming.

00:06:21--> 00:06:25

And what's coming here for us are corn

00:06:27--> 00:06:28

and also wheat.

00:06:30--> 00:06:36

So, what happens when you put a grain or a corn seed into the ground and then you cultivate it,

00:06:39--> 00:06:44

it grows several spikes, or ears or leaves,

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

which in turn, give

00:06:49--> 00:06:53

100 grains or seeds

00:06:55--> 00:06:59

which in turn, give 100 greens or scenes.

00:07:00--> 00:07:01

As Allah says here,

00:07:04--> 00:07:06

every single spike every single year,

00:07:08--> 00:07:14

it has in it 100 100 scenes, or 100 grains.

00:07:16--> 00:07:16

And so

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

a loss of Hannah who without it is telling you

00:07:21--> 00:07:22

or believer,

00:07:24--> 00:07:26

your sadaqa that you give,

00:07:27--> 00:07:32

when you give $1 sincerely for the sake of Allah for a cause.

00:07:34--> 00:07:38

feasterville Allah, the cause of Allah in the path of Allah,

00:07:39--> 00:07:41

that $1 that you give,

00:07:42--> 00:07:45

it gets multiplied in its reward

00:07:46--> 00:07:48

up to 700 times.

00:07:49--> 00:07:53

So you get $1 the reward you get is 700.

00:07:55--> 00:07:58

You give $2 the reward you get is 1400

00:08:02--> 00:08:04

and so on and so forth.

00:08:08--> 00:08:09

What is so special about this?

00:08:12--> 00:08:19

What is so special is that people, they trade and they do business for profit.

00:08:22--> 00:08:27

And so if there is no profit, they wouldn't bother going into business.

00:08:30--> 00:08:33

It's very hectic, it's it requires a lot of effort

00:08:35--> 00:08:36

and requires money.

00:08:37--> 00:08:38

investment.

00:08:40--> 00:08:43

If there's not going to be any profit in the end, then what is the point?

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

It's useless.

00:08:47--> 00:08:56

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to realize that this is a trade that we are doing with a loss of Hannah who will

00:09:00--> 00:09:02

and that we will profit industry.

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

And that's why Allah gives us this parable.

00:09:10--> 00:09:13

And this is not the only place where Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:09:14--> 00:09:24

refers to you know, giving a sidecar as being business with Allah subhana wa Taala or a transaction with Allah.

00:09:25--> 00:09:41

For example elsewhere Allah subhana wa tada says menza lady yo creo que la corbon has an answer for you, boy, Eva hula who won a john kerry Who is it? Who will give to Allah a goodly loan

00:09:43--> 00:09:45

so that I can multiply it for him.

00:09:49--> 00:09:53

And so imagine a very rich and well off businessman

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

who will who is also known for his generosity. He's known to

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Be a pious man a good person.

00:10:03--> 00:10:06

He doesn't rip people off, but rather he's generous.

00:10:07--> 00:10:09

Let's say he comes to you one day.

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

And he says,

00:10:13--> 00:10:14

You know what, today

00:10:16--> 00:10:18

I'm in a bit of financial trouble.

00:10:20--> 00:10:22

If you don't mind, can you lend me some money?

00:10:25--> 00:10:29

Even if you didn't have that money, you would go out of your way to find it and bring it to him.

00:10:30--> 00:10:31

Why?

00:10:32--> 00:10:38

Because you know, that when it comes time for him to pay you back,

00:10:40--> 00:10:49

you know that he is going to return it and multiply. He's going to give you back far more than what you gave to him.

00:10:51--> 00:10:54

And so how about wassup Hannah Houma, tada

00:10:56--> 00:11:03

How about Allah subhanho wa Taala who is self sufficient, he is not in need of anything.

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

He is not in need of our sadhaka

00:11:11--> 00:11:12

if he wants

00:11:15--> 00:11:19

from him or from his own self, he could enrich the poor.

00:11:21--> 00:11:23

He could give us Muslims wealth,

00:11:24--> 00:11:25

to use it

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

in spreading his Deen.

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

Allah is not in need of our wealth.

00:11:35--> 00:11:39

But rather, the only reason Allah uses such

00:11:42--> 00:11:46

methods is to encourage us to give

00:11:49--> 00:11:53

to encourage us by using examples

00:11:54--> 00:11:55

that we can relate to.

00:11:58--> 00:12:00

And the Sahaba or the Allahu anhu.

00:12:02--> 00:12:06

The fully understood such verses in the Quran

00:12:09--> 00:12:18

they fully understood the meaning of these verses. And as a result, they went into business with the loss of Hannah Montana, without any hesitation.

00:12:21--> 00:12:25

Take the example of the Roman even health probably a long time.

00:12:26--> 00:12:30

He was a well known businessman from among the Sahaba.

00:12:33--> 00:12:43

And he is one of the 10 that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam promised Elijah and machineable Gentlemen, one of the 10 who were promised

00:12:45--> 00:12:46

to androgenic

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

for the long run,

00:12:55--> 00:12:56

there was a time when

00:12:57--> 00:13:00

there was a drought in Medina, a family

00:13:03--> 00:13:03

and

00:13:06--> 00:13:08

when his caravan arrived in Medina,

00:13:10--> 00:13:11

with full of goods,

00:13:13--> 00:13:15

the people came rushing to trade with him.

00:13:21--> 00:13:25

And so some said, we will give you three times as much for this.

00:13:29--> 00:13:30

And other Hermann Ebbinghaus said no.

00:13:33--> 00:13:40

They said, Okay, we'll give you five times as much fitness. They said no, he said no.

00:13:43--> 00:13:46

They said we'll give you 10 times as much for this.

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

He said no.

00:13:52--> 00:13:56

They said, We are the trader is the businessman of Medina,

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

who will give you

00:14:00--> 00:14:01

more than us

00:14:04--> 00:14:05

for your goods

00:14:08--> 00:14:11

at all. Look at his response.

00:14:12--> 00:14:13

He said,

00:14:14--> 00:14:16

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:18--> 00:14:24

Allah subhanho wa Taala will give me 700 times as much. And then what did he do?

00:14:26--> 00:14:32

He rejected all of their offers. He turned down all of their offers. And he went with all of his goods

00:14:34--> 00:14:37

into the streets of Medina. And he distributed it all.

00:14:39--> 00:14:40

to the poor.

00:14:46--> 00:14:51

It's we gave it all away for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala in South Africa in charity.

00:14:53--> 00:14:53

Why?

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

Because he fully understood and believed in this ayah

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

In this parable that Allah subhanahu wa tada gave to us.

00:15:05--> 00:15:06

And this is what we call,

00:15:07--> 00:15:11

application of knowledge, implementing the Quran.

00:15:15--> 00:15:18

Even though we know that the Sahaba

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

they were not the richest people,

00:15:22--> 00:15:27

and they lived very simple lives.

00:15:30--> 00:15:36

And yet, even with their poverty, their simplicity.

00:15:38--> 00:15:39

Even with that,

00:15:41--> 00:15:44

they gave so much for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:15:46--> 00:16:03

And this is just one example from among the companions, there are numerous examples of how they will give away their wealth, seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala for the sake of a loss of Hannah, who were to Hannah,

00:16:04--> 00:16:10

even though they lived hard lines, and they could have kept that wealth for themselves,

00:16:11--> 00:16:15

to improve their their material lives.

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

But they didn't. Why?

00:16:20--> 00:16:22

Because they prefer that after over dystonia.

00:16:24--> 00:16:31

Now, fast forward 1400 years, and what do you find among us muscles,

00:16:33--> 00:16:36

with everything that we have,

00:16:37--> 00:16:39

with everything that Allah has blessed us with,

00:16:40--> 00:16:50

we're still stingy. And still holding on to that money, still holding back when we're told to come and give his opinion.

00:16:53--> 00:16:56

Even though our lives

00:16:58--> 00:16:59

are very comfortable,

00:17:01--> 00:17:04

compare our lives to their lives.

00:17:05--> 00:17:09

And then compare how much they would give to how much meat and you give.

00:17:14--> 00:17:16

So this shows us

00:17:18--> 00:17:22

the either we're ignorant of what was Hannah, who dad has revealed in the Koran,

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

or

00:17:26--> 00:17:27

it shows

00:17:29--> 00:17:30

that

00:17:31--> 00:17:32

we don't want to implement

00:17:33--> 00:17:36

what Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed in the corner.

00:17:43--> 00:17:45

And so giving him sadaqa,

00:17:46--> 00:17:50

giving him charity, Allah subhanho wa Taala multiplies it

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

up to 700 times.

00:17:57--> 00:17:58

But not only that,

00:18:00--> 00:18:12

there is no limit to the reward of a loss of Hannah who would data for charity for South Africa. That's why after that Allah says, will allow you by a fully Masha

00:18:14--> 00:18:15

Allah multiplies

00:18:16--> 00:18:20

for whomever he knows meaning after that, there's no limit

00:18:22--> 00:18:25

to the reward that Allah will give for those who give it.

00:18:29--> 00:18:32

But what it all depends on is one thing.

00:18:34--> 00:18:37

If we want to guarantee the reward

00:18:38--> 00:18:39

of a lot in the era,

00:18:40--> 00:18:44

with regards to our soda car and our generosity,

00:18:47--> 00:18:49

one thing is very, very important. It is the foundation.

00:18:50--> 00:18:53

And that is a man and his loss.

00:18:54--> 00:18:57

A man and a class.

00:19:00--> 00:19:13

And that's why we're gonna see in the coming parables, Allah gives us a parable of someone who gives with with a class with sincerity. And then Allah gives us a parable of someone who gives without sincerity.

00:19:14--> 00:19:16

showing us the importance of

00:19:18--> 00:19:24

giving sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Also, what's important is

00:19:27--> 00:19:29

where you earned your wealth from

00:19:30--> 00:19:31

and where do you spend it?

00:19:34--> 00:19:36

Where do you get it in South Africa.

00:19:38--> 00:19:39

And so that's why

00:19:41--> 00:19:50

the green that Allah mentioned here in this parable, it will only produce hundreds of more seeds and grains.

00:19:51--> 00:19:55

If it is grown on land, that is fertile

00:19:56--> 00:19:58

and that has rich soil.

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

Only if it is watered properly

00:20:04--> 00:20:05

and receives

00:20:06--> 00:20:08

the right amount of sunshine

00:20:10--> 00:20:16

and so on and so forth. And so there are certain factors that are necessary in order for

00:20:20--> 00:20:21

a seed to grow

00:20:25--> 00:20:26

and

00:20:27--> 00:20:28

nurture

00:20:30--> 00:20:33

there are certain factors that are required.

00:20:35--> 00:20:38

The land has to be in such a place

00:20:39--> 00:20:46

where, you know, the soil is fertile, it's rich soil.

00:20:48--> 00:20:56

It's in a place that gets good sunshine, it gets watered properly, so many different factors.

00:20:58--> 00:20:59

And then on top of that,

00:21:00--> 00:21:01

on top of that,

00:21:03--> 00:21:06

making sure that nothing destroys this crop,

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

such as a famine

00:21:10--> 00:21:12

or a fire.

00:21:14--> 00:21:20

That's why in the coming parables, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions these examples

00:21:21--> 00:21:23

of how certain

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

charity is nullified

00:21:31--> 00:21:34

when we give it in a certain way, and a lot compares it

00:21:36--> 00:21:38

to a garden that is destroyed by fire

00:21:41--> 00:21:44

in a lot compared to other things, as we're gonna see,

00:21:47--> 00:21:50

moving on to the lessons that we can learn from this parable.

00:21:52--> 00:21:54

The first lesson is

00:21:58--> 00:22:01

that the virtue of charity

00:22:03--> 00:22:04

is that it grows

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

and not like other good deeds,

00:22:14--> 00:22:15

that

00:22:16--> 00:22:19

they don't grow beyond the individual.

00:22:21--> 00:22:23

And so, this is because of charity.

00:22:25--> 00:22:28

It is one of those good deeds that is transitive,

00:22:30--> 00:22:30

meaning

00:22:32--> 00:22:34

it affects others.

00:22:37--> 00:22:37

The good

00:22:39--> 00:22:45

is passed on to others. When you give them charity, you are benefiting somebody else.

00:22:48--> 00:22:51

As opposed to other good deeds that are intransitive,

00:22:52--> 00:22:55

meaning they are the benefit is only

00:22:57--> 00:23:02

is only for you, the individual who carries out the petite. Like for example, Salah.

00:23:04--> 00:23:04

Praying,

00:23:06--> 00:23:09

if you get up in the middle of the night and priests are too good.

00:23:10--> 00:23:17

This is a good deed without a doubt. But the benefit is restricted to yourself.

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

In short, while you'll get the reward for it on the Day of Judgment.

00:23:26--> 00:23:40

So then why does Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned that this is a reward for giving charity that it is multiplied by 700 times. Whereas there's no IO or Hadith that mentions that keyamo li 200

00:23:43--> 00:23:51

The reward is multiplied like this. Why the reason for that is among the reasons for that is because

00:23:54--> 00:24:00

giving a charity, the reward giving a charity, that benefit is transmitted

00:24:02--> 00:24:02

the benefit

00:24:04--> 00:24:08

moves on to others and is not restricted to yourself.

00:24:10--> 00:24:14

And that's why the scholars say that such good deeds are better.

00:24:16--> 00:24:21

The good deeds that are transitive are better than the good deeds that are intransitive.

00:24:22--> 00:24:24

And so they give a common example of this.

00:24:26--> 00:24:35

A person who seeks knowledge he spends his entire day seeking knowledge, studying reading because he wants to become a scholar

00:24:36--> 00:24:41

or a strong student of knowledge and then he wants to become a die and he goes out

00:24:42--> 00:24:45

later on to benefit the people.

00:24:46--> 00:24:49

He is better and he is getting more reward

00:24:50--> 00:24:51

than a person

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

who gets up in the middle of the night to practically family. And yet this student he sleeps at night he does not get up for kiama

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

They say that what he is doing is better.

00:25:04--> 00:25:14

And so giving him charity, the virtue of it is that it grows. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala compared it here to something that grows,

00:25:16--> 00:25:18

the seed that grows

00:25:20--> 00:25:24

and then it multiplies. Just like our charity, when we give it

00:25:25--> 00:25:29

the benefit reaches, perhaps the lives of

00:25:30--> 00:25:31

hundreds of people.

00:25:35--> 00:25:43

No matter what cause it was for as long as it was a cause for the sake of a loss of Hannah who died, the reward keeps on multiplying.

00:25:45--> 00:25:47

The second lesson that we learn here

00:25:50--> 00:25:51

is

00:25:54--> 00:25:57

the great reward for those who given charity.

00:26:01--> 00:26:03

As Allah mentions here 700 times

00:26:06--> 00:26:08

as opposed to

00:26:09--> 00:26:16

good deeds, as opposed to any other good deed. And so in general, good deeds are multiplied by 10.

00:26:17--> 00:26:19

As a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:26:20--> 00:26:25

that every good deed every hessonite that you do, it is multiplied by 10.

00:26:29--> 00:26:31

However, there are certain good deeds that

00:26:33--> 00:26:35

are multiplied even more.

00:26:37--> 00:26:39

And charity is one example of that.

00:26:41--> 00:26:49

The third lesson that we learn from this parable is that Allah subhanho wa Taala takes it upon himself, to reward the one who gives the chair

00:26:51--> 00:26:53

he took it upon himself

00:26:55--> 00:26:56

to reward such people

00:26:59--> 00:27:01

will law who by elimination,

00:27:02--> 00:27:05

and allow multiplies for whoever he will lose,

00:27:06--> 00:27:09

meaning a lot chooses you.

00:27:11--> 00:27:14

He wills he wishes for you,

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

for your

00:27:19--> 00:27:21

good deed to be rewarded to be multiplied.

00:27:26--> 00:27:34

And there are other examples of such good deeds for example, fasting, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:27:35--> 00:27:37

that fasting is one of those good deeds.

00:27:39--> 00:27:49

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that every good deed of the son of Adam is for himself except for, except for fasting.

00:27:50--> 00:28:12

This is actually a hadith could see the loss of Hannah who which Allah says, Every good deed that the son of Adam does, it is for him, and he will get his reward for it except for fasting. It was for me, and I will reward him for it. So a lot took it upon himself to reward him for that.

00:28:15--> 00:28:20

Such good deeds, when we when they're mentioned in the Quran, or in the Sunnah in this way.

00:28:25--> 00:28:27

It basically indicates

00:28:28--> 00:28:33

that this good deed is very special in the sight of Allah.

00:28:34--> 00:28:45

And that's why he takes it upon himself. The I will reward you for this and that's why such deeds are multiplied way more than other good deeds.

00:28:49--> 00:28:51

There are certain good deeds, where

00:28:54--> 00:28:55

the reward

00:28:56--> 00:29:05

it is mentioned as we mentioned, all good deeds they are multiplied by 10. But then there are other good deeds where there is no limit

00:29:06--> 00:29:08

to the rewards that you will receive.

00:29:11--> 00:29:13

And examples of that are fasting

00:29:16--> 00:29:19

and giving in South Africa

00:29:21--> 00:29:22

and also patients

00:29:25--> 00:29:27

in America for saburo una eduroam.

00:29:30--> 00:29:37

Those who are patient, their reward will be without any accounting

00:29:39--> 00:29:43

meaning that a lot did not specify how much reward they will have.

00:29:44--> 00:29:50

Likewise here what long diminisher multiplies for whomever he wishes,

00:29:51--> 00:29:55

meaning that the reward of charity, yes,

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

it is multiplied by up to 700 times

00:30:00--> 00:30:00

pretending

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

it is multiplied after that for whomever Allah wills.

00:30:07--> 00:30:12

This shows us the significance of giving in sadaqa. That's why

00:30:16--> 00:30:20

in Surah tomonaga, cool, awesome Hannah huhtala tells us

00:30:22--> 00:30:23

he commands us to give

00:30:24--> 00:30:34

him cubberly haidakhan will note for biloela Horton, he either agile in Caribbean, for us or duck,

00:30:36--> 00:30:37

what can you know solid

00:30:39--> 00:30:45

law commanders are you believe that give, give spend from what we have given to you,

00:30:46--> 00:30:51

before a day comes in which one of you before a day comes

00:30:52--> 00:30:53

when

00:30:54--> 00:30:56

before death comes to one of you?

00:30:57--> 00:30:59

And he says, My Lord,

00:31:00--> 00:31:06

delay delay this appointed time for me delay death

00:31:08--> 00:31:09

so that

00:31:11--> 00:31:23

I could go back to the dunya for a Sock Doc and give a charity and be from among the ranges. The scholar see the reason why he specifies charity

00:31:25--> 00:31:31

as opposed to any other good deed, why did he specify charity here? The scholars say because

00:31:36--> 00:31:37

after death, he seems

00:31:39--> 00:31:48

in the accurate, he seems to agree reward for charity for sadaqa how it is multiplied

00:31:50--> 00:31:56

not just up to 700 times but far beyond that the sky's the limit.

00:31:57--> 00:32:11

And so all of this shows us the importance of a sadhaka and being generous and giving feasibility Nah, I asked Allah subhanahu wa taala to make us from among those who are generous and not stingy

00:32:12--> 00:32:21

to make us from among those who give with a loss and to accept whatever we have given for his sake.

00:32:23--> 00:32:32

Also Allahumma salli ala nabina Muhammad Ali, he was so happy he was Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
