Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam O Allah shuffle, MBA, mousseline, Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi, wa Taala, he was
just leaving Catherine cathedra from abajo
on the day of judgment,
do deeds will not be counted, they will be weighed,
they will be weighed.
And that is why wrestlers wrestle them sir, in some cases,
a person may come, for example, a person may come with charity,
the weight of the charity, or the quantity of the charity in this dunya in this world
was the weight of one date
or a date seat.
But on the Day of Judgment, when that date of charity is placed on that person scale,
it will weigh more than the weight of the mountain of our head in gold.
Think about that,
let's not weighing the material weight of that thing.
Because obviously, the material weight of a date or date seat cannot be more than that of a mountain.
Lots of data is weighing the spiritual weight of that
the heart in that deed
the feeling with which that deed was done,
the difficulty that a person had to undergo in order to be able to do that deed
these are the things that are going to count
in our favor or against us on the Day of Judgment.
Sticking with the same example, we know for example, there for some people to write a check of $10,000
is no big deal.
But for other people
to donate $10 is a very big deal.
Now, this has a relation to
material, status and wealth of the person. But also you will know that it is live there are people who have the material
who have the wealth, but for them to give $10 is more difficult for somebody who is far smaller in terms of material resources.
Then for that person to give $10,000
a person with
lower material resources is able to do more and give more than the person with much more because of the
and I cannot because of the generosity because of the
because of the lack of dependence on the world and worldly resources that is there in this person's heart.
The more the heart is free from greed, from fear of circumstances from fear of people and things in life. The more the heart is free from anxiety about the life in this world. And the more it is filled with concern for the life in the ACA.
The more that happens, the easier it becomes for a person to be generous.
for somebody said that for some people.
They carry their wealth in their pocket or in their hand.
And there are other people who carry their wealth inside their heart.
The people who carry their wealth in their pocket or in their hand It is very easy for them to give this wealth in the path of almost random.
It is very easy for them to spend is worse than the bottom.
But for the person
who has this wealth in his heart
it's very difficult for that person.
To spend that worth, because to take it out of the heart is not easy. That is very difficult.
Everyone says does the key lies in understanding what
Rasulullah Sallam told us about the real value of wealth and about
what it is to be used for,
this is the switch in the mind
that the Sahaba made.
And you can see that in the life of the solar system himself because he was their inspiration.
He was their leader, he should be our inspiration also.
Whether he is or not, is not a matter of singing a shoot.
But that will be visible in our actions.
If the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam is Allah
is our inspiration, then our actions will be molded on the way and the path of
my brother and sister and myself and you. Allah told us
very clearly in the Quran
the set of idols rather Bukhara, just so beautiful.
And the more I reflect on them, the more
their beauty, their meaning their purpose.
I seem to understand that a grant Advantage Plan is correct.
It was around data they said oh ad began begins with Allah subhanaw taala said old we let him initiate on it rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Yeah, you already know
Morocco una comida Cabo de da
de la i t i o
Walla shelf, our world cafe Runa homos.
This is the first diet of that series. And this is the I just before I tell cozy.
Now, Alicia here, gelato, the meaning of which inshallah Allah says we will be live spend from what we have given you.
Spend in the bath of Allah subhanaw taala and fugaku mimar Rosa kanakam. All you believe and remember my brothers and sisters, any ayat of the Quran will begin with you are you Alina Amano is a direct address to the believers. And it is a direct order and hokum of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To be taken and to be accepted and to be acted upon.
Because the position of the believer is mana, or outline, or Veronica,
the position of the believer is Allah I have heard and I will obey, we have heard and we will await and please forgive us and you is our return. This is the position of the believer. The position of the believer is not to argue and to
and to debate and to
push back the position of believers to say I have heard and I will obey some and errata
I have heard in this case this and you have heard this
so what is alerting alerts monitor is in here. All you believe and that makes it an i o
and I love giving us some advice.
It is advice it is the order of Allah but also the order is couched in the language of advice.
A lot of Randall is saying oh believe Spin Spin from what I have given you.
spread from what we have given you mean comedy to do before a day comes and before you come to that de
la by own fee. What a whole lotta
a day in which there will be no trade, there will be no bargaining.
What are hola there will be no friendship.
With Ashoka, there will be no intercession,
there will be no recommending
there will be no advocacy.
The three things that we rely upon in this life
what is the first one,
we hear this conversation quite a lot from Americans, because a lot of Americans seem to be conditioned to believe that they can pay for anything. And as long as you can pay, you can get it.
And some of them get some very hard landings with that.
So often you hear this,
hear this statement?
What if I pay more?
What will you take to do it in one 10th of the time.
ls wanted to see that maybe this is what you got used to in life.
Maybe you told yourself that, as long as I have enough money, I don't need anything else. Because I can buy anything. I can buy love, I can buy loyalty, I can buy friendship, this is what you're telling yourself, right? I'm not saying we'll do that.
I don't think you can do that.
I have never tried to do it because I know it can't be done.
And whoever tried to do it with me discovered
whether it can be done or not.
But people live in this life, as if they believe
that it is possible to buy your way through life. So as long as I have a you know enough dollar bills in my pocket, or I have a credit card which works,
then every door in the world is possible to open anything, whatever I want.
alleging that maybe this is what you told yourself in this life, on the day of judgment, that is not going to work.
And as I mentioned do doesn't even work in this life. That is a one of the many foolish beliefs that we
convince ourselves about. And we
live our lives as if that is correct.
But Allah subhanaw taala saying that you will discover later you will get a rude shock on the Day of Judgment. If that's what you think.
Not everything is for sale.
Integrity is not for sale.
Honesty is not for sale. The truth is not for sale.
And those who sell the truth are not selling the truth
is you will find you will find
every oppressive ruler, and I'm talking about Muslim rulers, every oppressive ruler had compliant scholars had complained Allah within
who tried to justify whatever he did
by first by creative interpretations of the Quran and the hedis.
And where even the creative interpretation wouldn't work. By manufacturing, I had this
how do you think all these model are how this came to be?
inauthentic and fabricated I had is how do you think they ever
there was somebody behind that there was someone who was doing that in order to put forward his worldly agenda.
And he was
happily sacrificing his own Acura
because he forgot the headings of crossovers are seldom or more likely he wouldn't have forgotten he would have ignored it. Where as soon as SLM said the one who says about me that which I have not said meaning a one who manufactures something and says gala Rasulullah Rasul Allah.
That person will
search for his own place in Ghana. He will search for his own seat in Ghana and he will sit there
as soon as as promised jahannam
for the one who misquotes not misquoted, because you might miss go
Because you forgot or you know,
you didn't know whether something who actually creates and manufactures a false heads or who manufactures a statement and says that there was the promise or doesn't have said this.
So, be very careful.
You may or may not be manufacturing or Hades Charla but many people have this way of speaking where they say, Allah said this. And also Hassan said this, please understand, anytime you said Allah said this, you must be able to bring an ayah to show that
and if you do not have the IRA, then Allah didn't say this unless Allah is speaking to you directly.
And so also the hadith of Rasulullah Salah
if you are saying that the prophets are seldom said this, then you need to have an authentic is a hadith
a good and properly authenticated Hadith
in support of your statement.
Otherwise Rasulullah sallallahu didn't say that you said it, and you ascribe it to him.
And may Allah protect you because then you put yourself in that position where he said that the one who does that will search for his own place in Ghana and he will occupy that place.
So Allah subhanaw taala is saying here, that on that day of judgment, you will not be able to buy your way out.
You will not be able to manufacture
or buy your way out.
There's no trade.
What a whole lot.
The second thing that we rely upon in this life is friendships. handler that is very good.
There's nothing wrong with that. Trying to buy always through life is a sign of arrogance.
But friendship that is tragic.
So I have a friend I would like to help my friend I'll go to my weight or my friend extreme situation, I will sacrifice my own life for my friend. All of this is possible in this life hamdulillah
those of us that are blessed with
are truly blessed.
But on the Day of Judgment
of Hello, yo ma you is in Via duhem illa badam, at the
lowest amount of data said, the closest friends of Hilah.
Kayla is the plural of holly Holly is the closest
level of friendship.
So Allah said those who were a healer in this life who are closest friends, on the day of judgment,
they will become enemies to one another.
Hmm, enemies to one another.
For example, I might have a good friend, and maybe I meet him somewhere. And in that particular module, this gathering, you know, I greet him, or I waved to him. And he looks through me.
He doesn't return my greeting.
He ignores me. So this is one level, right?
And I'm not saying he didn't see me, he saw me but for whatever reason. He didn't want to associate himself with me.
He didn't want people to know that he knows me. I know him. He didn't want people to know that he's my friend. So he ignored me even if I call out to Him, He pretended not to hear.
If I waved to him, he ignored me. So this is one level. But I cannot say that he became my enemy.
He didn't become my enemy. He just ignored me you for whatever reason yet.
enemy is somebody who deliberately tries to harm you.
Now what is Allah saying on that day what will happen? What is the word use or do
Allah data said that those akhila will become a dog
will become either
they will become enemies.
The Holly will become the adult
very own fee. What a whole lot. So no hold no
Friendship on that day, nobody will save you.
Even the one who in this life would have gladly, for example, if a if a friend is you know is in hospital, if you need blood, then there will be not one there will be many friends have is will be very happy to do, they will vie with each other, to donate blood to their friend.
In some cases, and I know for a fact this is true. In some cases a friend may offer
you one of his organs for transplantation. For example, if you need a kidney transplant and you don't have it, and if there is a friend of yours for whom all the numbers match, that friend may say, I'm ready, please take my kidney and give it to my friend give it to a friend.
And somebody else tells him Look, you know you are endangering your life because you have two good kidneys. Now you give one to your friend here.
And then one of you have only one kidney and that kidney fails, what happens the friend might say doesn't matter, I don't I don't care about that I want my friend to live. If he does not get a kidney transplant, you're going to die. So I will give my kidney to him inshallah, Allah subhanaw taala will take care of me.
And if I have to die, I will die.
But I will give my kidney to that person. So you will have friends who are good enough for that in this life. And ultimately, you might have a friend who
maybe you are waylaid, maybe you're driving somewhere the you know, highway robbery or something. And you might have a friend who comes in the way and takes a bullet for you.
It takes a bullet for you.
But on the Day of Judgment, none of this is going to happen.
None of that is going to happen including those same friends who in this life did these things for you on that day they are going to say Salaam Alaikum.
They will not even say Salaam Alaikum. They will try to harm you.
And then listen, while Asha
our third recourse in this life.
One, see if you can buy your way out of trouble to
seek help ask friends.
Please, I have this problem. Please help me.
And third way
go and find somebody who had access to whoever you need was the
Right. So I don't have access to this. This governor this president and his prime minister usually is never that high. It's a question of somebody must lower.
So what do you do? You say well, let me check now who knows whom
is there some relationship maybe there is are some family connection we have with this person. Maybe there's a friend of mine who is his.
His brother in law, his or his father in law is you know, whatever connection that he has, or maybe there is some school, network, college, university network, whatever it is political affiliations. So let me go and see let me go and check and see who can get me access to this person. So that I can go and present my case.
And if you have the right connection then
happens for you.
You don't have to pay for anything. The person who's doing the work for you is not even your friend. He's never seen you in your life in his life. But he will do the work for you because of the connection you have.
On the day of judgment
that is not going to be there.
That is not going to be there any and anybody who wants to dispute with this. I'm giving you the ayat of the Quran I'm not giving you my opinion.
Yeah you are Latina armano and vehicle me maharatna min cobbly ta o la Bayonne, Walla
Well, kaviraj masala
and those who deny those who refuse to accept
those who hide the truth.
They are the transgressors they are those alone. They are the people who are
on the wrong path
and lots of 100 days in this
so what is Allah say Allah saying that we gave you something in this life,
we gave you wealth, we gave you health, we gave you
we gave you influence and ability
for you to use it.
We didn't give it to you, for you to self indulge. We didn't give it to you for you to hoard.
We didn't give it to you, for you to
use it to look good before people and indulgent you know this whole
nasty culture that we have created of ostentation and showing off and one upmanship
Allah saying we didn't give you this we didn't give you this for all of that.
We gave you this for one reason and that one reason is so that you can save yourself on the Day of Judgment
these three things which allows rantala mentioned also draw our attention to the three ways in which we can work for example, if you say the one who has wealth Okay, sure, you know, I can I can spend my wealth
and I can look for
one is to give when somebody comes to me to ask
I already make the door and I say Allah
give me well
and then ensure that whoever you send to me, he does not need to go anywhere else.
Give me enough wealth and ensure that I spend it in your path all of it.
And if you send any person with hija with somebody with any need, then enable me to fulfill that complete need fulfill that need of that person through me and let that person not go to anybody else.
The fact that that person is coming to me is difficult enough for that person it is it is so difficult meltwater save us from this of ever having to ask somebody for help.
I make this rudderless monitor every single day. All or do not make me mortage do not make me dependent on anybody on the face of the earth.
And just yesterday I was thinking about this.
And I was very happy I thought to myself are hamdulillah
today I am trimming Sondra budget today, but I'm saying that this year.
If I leave until
you know the 20th of October, I would have completed 65 years.
Quite literally speaking.
Except for my brother and sisters.
In my life today as I speak to you,
there is nobody
who was with me when I was growing up.
Nobody, every single person in my life
came into my life much later.
Every single person who is there in my life today
came into my life.
Much later after I had passed my youth and growing up stage, all the people.
if anyone who is there in my life today
imagines that they are indispensable for me that I cannot do without them.
Then I remind myself that I lived for 20 3040 years of my life and I didn't even know this person existed. I live very happily.
So I don't need that.
Whoever it is.
And on the contrary,
those people who were with me when I was growing up from my earliest childhood,
and 100 I've got beautiful people wonderful people. In both parts of my life. I've got people today, even though I can do without any one of them. But I love them very much. They are beautiful people. I respect them. I honor them. I'm very happy that they are part of my life. But they are not indispensable.
I'm not Mataji or any of them.
I don't need any of them. Alhamdulillah
and the same way
the people who were in my life when I was growing up
who I greatly Honor, I respect I love them. They contributed to my life.
They're all gone.
Almost all of them have passed away a bright.
A couple of them are there.
But now we are I mean, you're not enemies now. But, you know, they live in some country. I live in some country, there's no day to day connections on
I missed them.
But can I say that, you know, my life is not worth living? Because once was not there? No way? No way. Not by a longshot.
I miss them.
In some cases, I feel that, you know, it would have been nice if today, if they were there. And if they could see what I'm doing. If they would see me today.
I'd be that as it may that is the color of Allah subhanaw taala.
I missed them. But
Connect with Alice Rotella and you will lead nobody else.
And in any case, that's the best thing. But everyone in the world is wattage, including me and you, everyone. We are all in need. So what is the point in connecting or calling on somebody who's who is himself in need?
As he was going down the street and he heard a man he was talking to another man, he was complaining about his situation in life and he said, You know, this is wrong, that is wrong. hasn't stopped there. And he says, what kind of a strange man are you? You are complaining about Russia to the one who has no raha.
He said you are complaining about the one who is full of mercy to somebody who has no mercy.
You want to leave the one who has everything, who can give everything who has everything, but he does not need any of it. So he can give it all.
You want to leave him and go and beg somebody who no matter what he has, he is himself in need of it.
Which King Have you seen? Who does not have a guard on his Treasury?
Which bank Have you seen that doesn't have?
Which wealthy person? Have you seen? Who doesn't have an alarm system on his house?
Just ask one of your closest friends.
For his password to unlock his screen on his computer, I'm not talking to my mom or asking you to
do ask him what is a bank password?
And maybe it gives you a phone to use or he gives you his phone to use? Or maybe
you're using his computer or something and you say you know, can you What's the password because the screen is locked
99 out of 100
no matter how close you think you are, they will give me and they will enter the password themselves. They will not tell you what the password is.
He's only got one and 100 who has enough confidence in himself and in you
who is my password. So
that is the level of our connection, this is life.
So as random, as I mentioned these three things which Allah swatara told us one is wealth.
So Allah is saying spend your wealth in the path of Allah, before a day comes when that wealth will be useless for you completely this way.
You know, in India, last year 2019 we had this D monetization exercise
suddenly out of the blue our Prime Minister announced that from an he made his announcement very dramatically at midnight.
And he said that from the next morning, all 500 rupee notes and 1000 rupee notes
will be invalid.
So if you have those notes,
then you need to take them to the to the nearest bank bank where you have an account and deposit them in your account. And the banker will give you
2000 rupee notes, or he will give you credit for that.
And people went and stood in line long lines, and so on and so forth. Some people even died in those lines. But the point I'm making here is not whether the D monetization policy was right or wrong, I am saying here that suddenly that 500 rupee note
in your hand, became a worthless piece of paper.
So, imagine what happened to whoever, maybe somebody had some illegal money stashed away somewhere,
which couldn't be accounted for. But it is money.
I mean, if I take a $20 bill and go to a shop and I buy something, the guy does ask me, you know, did you pay tax on this money? Did you Where do you earn it? Was it was the way you are ended? hirahara We don't care. As far as he's concerned.
You want to buy
this, this thing, whatever it is, you know, and you pay for it and he takes the money.
But suddenly, that money became useless. Technically. It was rather a saying that on the day of judgment that will happen to your entire wealth.
Whether it is money, whether it is property, whether it is stocks, whether it is gold, silver, diamonds, whatever it is.
It's an amazing world.
Sometimes somebody people send me trivia, someone sent me something saying some 37
unusual things that the Queen of England owns.
And among those 37 things that she owns are all the mute swans on the River Thames
and all the dolphins and porpoises
off the coast of England for a certain distance.
The Queen owns them.
I don't know whether the Queen actually believes that or not.
Her Majesty is intelligent enough not to believe nonsense. But certainly, legally she is the owner
How can you own something which will fly away
go as the swan does this one who is swimming on the Thames consider himself or herself to be the property of the British monarch
dock to the dark dolphins in the porpoises and the whales off the coast of of Britain.
Though I'm aware and chewing gum in the
gum, pass that invisible line and I'm in those waters and I suddenly belonged now to the Queen of England.
And then I'm aware
and I didn't come to the UK to
you know for a bottle of Guinness stout.
I'm on my way north.
And so now I'm out of those waters and now I belong to myself.
And I belong to Allah, I've already blogged a lot anyway.
Why man? Why am I mentioning this? Do I mentioned this too, because to show you
the truth of what Allah Allah said when he said woman had to do a Lava Tower. Allah said this life of this world is deception.
And we live a life where we call ourselves intelligence. Yet we are willing to believe the most utter nonsense that you can imagine.
And serious people I'm not talking about some you know, Joker from, you know, some some hollywood, bollywood or bigger Joker's in
politics. I'm talking about serious people, historians, legal experts
unless rather than saying no, sorry.
your so called resources which you are so proud of.
They don't even belong to you.
They belong to Allah. Allah has given them to you in trust in this life, use them for what they have been given to you. You are given resource to help people you are given resources to buy Jana
three kinds of resources wealth, influence which is our friendship which and friendship and influence which is what Shabbat is.
Allah, Allah told us on that day, none of this will work. So use them now. Use your wealth now. Use your influence now use your friendship now, in a way that pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that on the Day of Judgment, Allah will give you gentlemen
will come to the rest of the set of eyes inshallah. This is for today was Elena will Karim Allah Allah. He was happy when Veronica Salam aleikum wa
