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

Last week we

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

started

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

a Hadeeth a very long Hadees.

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

that

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

contains several parables mentioned by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:01:05--> 00:01:18

And we covered two of those parables. And tonight we will cover the remaining two of these parables. And with that we will have completed this series, the prophetic parables.

00:01:19--> 00:01:26

These parables that we have been going through that have been given by our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

And so first of all, we will

00:01:33--> 00:01:37

mentioned the Hadith once again, the Hadith. Basically,

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

this hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam basically

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

narrates to us

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

that Allah subhanho wa Taala had commanded

00:01:54--> 00:02:00

yahia le Salam in Zakaria with five commandments

00:02:01--> 00:02:07

to abide by and to basically teach than he is right he

00:02:09--> 00:02:16

and so he gathered them all in vital noctus in Jerusalem, and the masjid became filled.

00:02:18--> 00:02:27

And he told them that Allah subhanahu wa tada has commanded me with five commandments to abide by and to command you to abide by.

00:02:29--> 00:02:30

And then he mentioned

00:02:31--> 00:02:42

each of these five commandments. And so the first was concerning the toe heed of Allah and not associating partners with Allah. And he mentioned a parable

00:02:43--> 00:02:49

with respect to that. The second commandment was with respect to a Salah.

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

But with that one, he did not mention any parable. And the third commandment was with respect to fasting. And he mentioned a parable with respect to that.

00:03:05--> 00:03:19

So last week, we went through those two parables, the parable concerning the mushrik The one who associates partners with a law and the parable concerning fasting and the first thing person

00:03:20--> 00:03:25

and so today we move on to the remaining two commandments.

00:03:26--> 00:03:27

And so,

00:03:28--> 00:03:32

yeah, it means a career he continued on. And so he said,

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

What are Mortal Kombat sadhaka

00:03:37--> 00:03:44

in Metallica can metal euro Julian SRO who I do for otaku Yoda, who

00:03:46--> 00:03:56

works at the mu lialda reboot room for color and fd he minko will call he will catch it for Federal officer who went home.

00:03:58--> 00:03:59

And so he said,

00:04:01--> 00:04:06

he said, and Allah commands you to give in sadhaka, to give him charity.

00:04:07--> 00:04:13

And the parable of that is a man who is captured by his enemies.

00:04:14--> 00:04:17

And so they tie his hands to his neck.

00:04:18--> 00:04:37

And then they send him forward, they prepare him to have his neck chopped off. And so he says, Let me rent some myself from you with whatever little and whatever much I may have. And so he ransoms himself from them.

00:04:38--> 00:04:40

He ransoms himself from them.

00:04:42--> 00:04:51

And we mentioned last week that this hadith is mentioned in children a tirmidhi and is graded as being authentic

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

by many of the scholars of Hadith.

00:04:54--> 00:04:58

And so, in this parable, we have

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

In this parable that we have

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

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions

00:05:08--> 00:05:12

near reading from Zachary yahia ibn Zakaria

00:05:13--> 00:05:35

concerning sadhaka and its importance. And so sadaqa is something that was to happen who to hire has encouraged throughout the Quran as being something that will not be of any benefit to Allah, but rather the beneficiaries, those who benefit from the soccer as well as the giver of the sadhaka.

00:05:37--> 00:05:43

And so, the benefits returned to us, whatever we give the benefits returned to us.

00:05:44--> 00:05:46

And so, among the benefits

00:05:47--> 00:05:56

of giving them sadhaka is that through it, we have our wealth purified,

00:05:58--> 00:06:04

helping it to grow, helping our wealth to flourish. And so, it is a source of Baraka.

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

And so, our wealth does not decrease as a result of giving, but rather increases.

00:06:13--> 00:06:14

Also,

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

the rewards are great.

00:06:18--> 00:06:28

The has an ad that we gained from giving inside the car or multiply, as Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us the shortfall Baccarat up to 700 times.

00:06:29--> 00:06:34

Also, giving inside the car is a protection from the hellfire.

00:06:36--> 00:06:43

And finally, among the benefits of giving and sadhaka is what has been mentioned here. That basically

00:06:45--> 00:06:51

it is a means of warding off all kinds of evil and calamities.

00:06:52--> 00:06:57

All kinds of evil and calamities and also the punishment of Allah Subhana. What's

00:06:59--> 00:07:01

even okay him, he says commenting

00:07:02--> 00:07:04

on this parable.

00:07:06--> 00:07:25

He says this is also among those things whose evidence is in its existence. Meaning the evidence for this is the fact that it happens. You're given sadhaka. And all kinds of trials and tests are awarded off from you.

00:07:26--> 00:07:35

He says, For sadaqa has an amazing effect in warding off all kinds of calamities, even if it was from a wicked person

00:07:36--> 00:07:39

or an oppressor or even a cafe.

00:07:40--> 00:08:00

Allah Ward's off from a person through it through solder cup, all kinds of calamities. And this is something that is known among people, the elite, as well as a common folk, all of the people of the earth acknowledge it. Why? Because they have tried it, because they have tried it. And so it's one of those things that

00:08:01--> 00:08:06

experience tells us that it works, giving in South Africa

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

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in Hadith

00:08:13--> 00:08:14

that is greeted as being hessen

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

he says.

00:08:21--> 00:08:25

So now I'm Ruth, Turkey Massara Sue,

00:08:26--> 00:08:29

that doing good to others.

00:08:31--> 00:08:37

And from that is Sadako prevent all kinds of misfortunate endings.

00:08:40--> 00:08:56

And then he said concealed sadhaka concealed the hidden Sadako that we give, it extinguishes the anger of the Lord of Allah subhana wa Tada. and maintaining ties of kinship, increases in one's lifespan.

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

And so giving in sadhaka, it Ward's off all kinds of calamities, all kinds of misfortunes.

00:09:07--> 00:09:19

As for the parable that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned in this Hadith, when he said that the parable of this of giving a sadhaka is a man that is captured by his enemies.

00:09:21--> 00:09:22

And so,

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

an enemy combatant,

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

what are they going to do to him?

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

They're going to either kill him

00:09:34--> 00:09:35

or keep him as a prisoner of war

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

or allow him to ransom himself.

00:09:42--> 00:09:45

And so they decided that they're going to kill him.

00:09:47--> 00:09:49

They decide that they're going to kill him.

00:09:50--> 00:09:53

And so he says, Let me rent some myself.

00:09:54--> 00:09:55

Let me

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

know pay for my freedom.

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

with whatever I can give,

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

and so he does that and so they let him go.

00:10:07--> 00:10:11

And so, in the same way, our sadaqa that we give,

00:10:12--> 00:10:25

which we give sincerely for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada is a way of ransoming ourselves of freeing ourselves from the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's because

00:10:27--> 00:10:28

our sins

00:10:30--> 00:10:32

necessitate that we be punished.

00:10:33--> 00:10:35

We have so many sins

00:10:36--> 00:10:40

that make us to deserve the punishment of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

And so when we give in sadaqa

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

and we give it with a sincere intention.

00:10:50--> 00:11:04

It is a way of being saved from that punishment of Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, in a famous Hadith when he was addressing the women

00:11:06--> 00:11:07

and so he said

00:11:09--> 00:11:23

Yana Shara Nisa to sandakan the all women give in South Africa for a new right or a two Kunta. Kizomba actually now, for Indeed, I saw

00:11:24--> 00:11:27

you as being the majority of the dwellers of the hellfire.

00:11:29--> 00:11:36

And so, it was as if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was encouraging them to give inside the car.

00:11:39--> 00:11:42

And mentioning the benefit of it that whatever you give,

00:11:44--> 00:11:47

is going to help you to be saved from the Hellfire because of your sins.

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

Our sins are leading us to the hellfire.

00:11:54--> 00:11:59

And giving sadaqa is one of the means of protecting ourselves from that punishment of Allah.

00:12:03--> 00:12:06

And in another Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

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

In this hadith recorded by

00:12:15--> 00:12:33

a body and Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, there will be none among you, except that Allah subhanho wa Taala will talk to him directly meaning on the Day of Judgment, without there being an interpreter, between them and Allah.

00:12:34--> 00:12:52

And so the slave, he will look to his right, and he will see nothing but his deeds that he had sent forward. And he will look to his left, and he will see nothing but his deeds that he had sent forward. And then he will look in front of him and see nothing but the hellfire.

00:12:53--> 00:12:55

And then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said,

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

What coonara Well, we should kitamura

00:13:02--> 00:13:08

Save yourselves from the Hellfire, even if it be with half of a date.

00:13:09--> 00:13:18

Meaning give in sadhaka even if it be something so small as half of a date, why, because even that will,

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

will benefit us,

00:13:22--> 00:13:32

in warding off the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so basically, what this parable teaches us is the power of sadhaka,

00:13:34--> 00:13:43

in warding off all kinds of evil and calamities, whether it is in this dunya or in the

00:13:44--> 00:13:46

and so among the lessons that we can learn from this Hadeeth

00:13:49--> 00:13:57

is, firstly, that sadaqa is one of the most beneficial acts one of the most beneficial deeds

00:13:59--> 00:14:04

for a person in this life, as well as in the ashira.

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

And so,

00:14:09--> 00:14:11

Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us

00:14:13--> 00:14:17

contouring the accuracy, and the benefit of giving and sadhaka.

00:14:18--> 00:14:32

What nccco mean was a Conoco mill corbally. And yet the Hydra Kumamoto for hula rock biloela hartney, Isla agilan, Caribbean for Assad duck, what are communists only thing

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

and spend from what We have provided for you donate give inside aka from what we have given to you before death comes to one of you and he says, My Lord, if only you had delayed me for a short while, give me just a short while delay death for just a short period so that I can go and give in sadhaka for us

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

Duck, and so that I can be one of the righteous. The scholars say, Why did he mentioned specifically sadhaka, even though he could have mentioned so many other good deeds, you know, imagine if one of us had the opportunity

00:15:18--> 00:15:34

to do something right before death. Or imagine this wish being granted to a person where the Angel of Death comes to take our soul? And we say, yeah, Rob, give me just a short while.

00:15:36--> 00:15:38

Just delay for a little bit. So I can go and do something.

00:15:40--> 00:15:43

do a good deed, what would we probably do?

00:15:45--> 00:15:51

We will probably pray, we would probably, we will do some kind of great deed that we see as being great.

00:15:53--> 00:16:07

But how many of us would think about sadhaka, the scholar say the reason why sadaqa was mentioned specifically is because at this point, the person has seen that he has that he's left this world.

00:16:08--> 00:16:10

And he is now in the stage of the barossa.

00:16:12--> 00:16:24

Where he can now see the effects of sadhaka. He can now see the effects of sadhaka. And so he sees the great effect of some kind of sort of color here given

00:16:26--> 00:16:31

he sees it. And so he says, Yeah, Rob, let me go back to the dunya so that I could give insurance.

00:16:33--> 00:16:38

Among the benefits of among the lessons that we learned from this parable is

00:16:39--> 00:16:52

that one of the benefits so we mentioned there are many benefits of soccer, but one of them is that it saves us from all kinds of evils from all kinds of calamities, and as we said, whether that is in the dunya or in the

00:16:53--> 00:16:59

in the asilo It saves us from the Hellfire as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned

00:17:00--> 00:17:02

as we're in this dunya than the same thing.

00:17:04--> 00:17:12

It Ward's off all kinds of misfortunes, calamities, tribulations that Allah subhanho wa Taala sends to us

00:17:13--> 00:17:21

whether they have befallen us, and so we want to, you know, remove them, or

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

they are decreed for us, and

00:17:26--> 00:17:30

we want to avoid them. We want to avoid

00:17:31--> 00:17:40

in this dunya there are two things that every single human being not just every single Muslim, but every single human being wishes for

00:17:43--> 00:17:46

a benefit, something that he chases after

00:17:47--> 00:17:49

something that he wants.

00:17:50--> 00:17:59

And something that he is running away from something that he fears, something that he doesn't want.

00:18:00--> 00:18:03

And that's why throughout the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

tells us that both are from Allah.

00:18:09--> 00:18:19

Whatever good befalls us it is from Allah. Whatever evil befalls us. It is also from Allah. And so we should turn to Allah subhana wa tada and ask him for both.

00:18:20--> 00:18:30

We should ask him for all good. And we should ask him to protect ourselves to protect us from all evil that we see as being evil.

00:18:33--> 00:18:35

Finally, among among the lessons that we learned from this,

00:18:37--> 00:18:38

from this

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

parable

00:18:41--> 00:18:42

is

00:18:44--> 00:18:47

that the reason why sadaqa is so special

00:18:48--> 00:18:53

in warding off evil in warding off calamities, and also the punishment of Allah

00:18:55--> 00:18:59

is because it comes out from a good heart

00:19:02--> 00:19:06

and that's the difference between a generous person and a stingy person.

00:19:10--> 00:19:13

Why does the loss of Hannah without a reward is so much for soccer

00:19:15--> 00:19:16

because

00:19:18--> 00:19:20

of the fact that we are naturally

00:19:22--> 00:19:25

attracted we are naturally attached

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

to our wealth.

00:19:29--> 00:19:34

And so when we give it up for sincerely for Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:19:35--> 00:19:40

Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards us because we gave up something for his sake.

00:19:41--> 00:19:43

Not only that, but as we said,

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

It proves that a person has

00:19:47--> 00:19:48

a good heart.

00:19:51--> 00:19:53

And so he is not selfish.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

But rather he cares for others. When people are in need, he gives

00:20:02--> 00:20:05

And the rule of Allah subhanho wa Taala is

00:20:07--> 00:20:16

the rule of a lot in this dunya for all, all of us is that Allah subhanho wa Taala treats us like we treat others.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala treats us

00:20:21--> 00:20:26

how we treat others, the evidence. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:20:28--> 00:20:30

Whoever relieves from unbeliever

00:20:32--> 00:20:40

one of the hardships of this dunya Allah will relieve from him one of the hardships of the Day of Judgment.

00:20:42--> 00:20:43

And whoever

00:20:44--> 00:20:54

makes it easy for the one who is in depth by helping him to pay off his debt, then Allah will make it easy for him in the dunya and in the era

00:20:56--> 00:21:04

and whoever conceals the mistakes the faults of Muslim, Allah will conceal his faults in this dunya and in

00:21:06--> 00:21:14

and then he said, a lie helps his sleeve as long as the slave is helping

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

his brother. Well, Allahu fionnula, Madame labdoo ahi.

00:21:22--> 00:21:26

And so how we are with others is how apostle Helen who will be with us.

00:21:27--> 00:21:33

And so if we are stingy and greedy, and not giving

00:21:34--> 00:21:40

and not being generous, and that is how Allah subhanahu wa tada will treat us in the dunya and

00:21:42--> 00:21:46

he will extend anything to us and that includes His mercy.

00:21:48--> 00:21:58

But if we are generous and we are giving and we are caring, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will be generous to us and caring with us.
