Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Shafi Lambie even mousseline, Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman, Kathira and Kathira, Hama Babu, my brothers and sisters,
if anyone were to ask me
the probably the topic of maximum interest
to Muslims, I would say it is a topic of risk, the topic of sustenance.
And that is why I want to talk to you today and the top and the title of this is the question of risk ordained or obtained.
I hope this will be beneficial for you.
For those of you who are interested in a more detailed
treatment of this topic, please read my book, it is called Risk ordained or obtain and it's, it's available on Amazon. And we'll also put a link to that in the description of this video.
There is also a
much more detailed lecture on this topic, which I did several years ago. I think, totally, that's about three hours. So roughly about an hour and a half in two parts. But I decided to do this one to try to encapsulate as briefly as possible, the significant salient features and salient points with respect to risk.
Now risk is one it's very, very important to understand the whole question of risk because this is part of our belief, our Aqeedah our creed about color of Allah subhanaw taala about destiny. So, I request you please pay close attention Inshallah, to what I have to say. And we asked us Ratata to put fair and baraka and blessing in what I have to say I ask Allah subhanaw taala enable me to say that which is beneficial for you, and for me as well as to prevent and and protect us from anything which might be harmful.
I want to begin
with the purpose of our creation, why are we even on this earth because risk or sustenance has to do with our presence in the world. And obviously therefore, it follows or it comes stems from the reason why we are on this earth about the service route that I mentioned very clearly. And in this set of three if I'm not gonna mention also sustenance and risk in sort of the Zarya Allah subhanaw taala said, well, now if I look at origins, I will Insa Illa Ali, I will do my What do you mean home mill wrist pin wama only a minute or a moon in Allah or Rosa code or Cova till Mateen Allah America Zed which means and so those idea
i as 56 to 58 Allah Samantha said, and I, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada that created not the jinn and humans except that they should worship Me alone. I did not create the jinn and Inserm and human beings for any purpose other than to worship Me alone. I do not seek any provision from them, I do not see careers from them, nor do I ask that they should feed Me or My creatures. Verily, Allah subhana wa Tada jelajah jelajah nano is the all provider the owner of power and the most strong.
Obviously, I cannot possibly
say this with greater emphasis or say it more clearly because this is the actual speech of Allah subhanaw taala. So please reflect on this idea. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned risk and Allah subhanaw taala mentioned our the purpose of our creation and Allah subhanaw taala said that he Gela Shanell Amman Allah who is the one who gives risk to us and he is
able to do that and he has the full power and authority and control to be able to do this. Now, what is this?
There is a any number of misconceptions about what risk is so I won't I won't list those. I won't talk about those. Let me talk about what it is. Risk is an all encompassing word, which includes everything that
We need to live in this world. It is not restricted to only money or food. It includes the air we breathe, the water we drink, and use the time we have in this life, knowledge, energy, have beauty, strength, food, education, money, our spouses, our risk our children our risk, movable and immovable property, our power, influence authority, and every conceivable kind of resource that we can imagine that we need for us to survive and live. All of this is part of risk.
I want to mention to the least about color,
about destiny, on the authority of Apulia buzz ROG Ilan Omar who said, One day I was mounted behind also Elijah Rossella on the same mount. And he SallAllahu sallam said, Oh young man, I will teach you some words of advice. Be mindful of Allah's Rhino data and Allah subhanho data will protect you. Be mindful of Allah subhanaw taala and you will find him in front of you. If you ask, ask only Allah. And if you seek help, then seek help only from Allah.
And know that if the if the nation if the whole world and everyone it contains word to gather together to benefit you with anything, they would not benefit you except with what Allah subhanaw taala has already prescribed for you. And if they were all together together to harm you with anything, they will not be able to harm you. Except with what Allah subhana wa Tada has already prescribed against you. The pens have been lifted, and the pages have dried. In another narration, this service is in theory, in another narration, not in comedy, Russell Rossano Salam is reported to have said, be mindful of Allah, and you will find him in front of you recognize and acknowledge
Allah subhanho wa Taala in times of ease and prosperity, and he will remember you in times of adversity, and know that what has passed you by was not going to be volume, and what has befallen you was not going to pass you by and know that victory comes with patience, relief comes with affliction and hardship comes with ease. As soon as he doesn't have also said about this in another place. He said, Do not say if only because if only is the door of Shanita. So if something happens, and is oh you know if only I had done this, if only I have not done this, this is the door of shaitaan What happened to you happen because Allah subhanaw taala wrote it and there is nothing in
the world that you could have done to avoid it or to bring it on. And this is a source of enormous contentment and enormous comfort to us, especially in times of bereavement or any any times of loss. Now shatter on the other hand, obviously.
He is on his sworn mission to deceive us and to take us into Jahannam and may Allah Subhana Allah protect us from that. So his deception about his deception. Allah is where does it show you Donal? Yeah Yokomen fakra? Well, yeah, Moroccan Ville fascia. Wallah Whoa, yeah, in the coma. Virata men who were formula will love awasu and I live in SoCal. mokara in Iowa, number 268. A lot of mountain is in shed shaitan threatens you with poverty and orders you to do shameful things, shameful deeds, why Allah subhanaw taala promises you forgiveness, and grid bounties of blessings from him geladeira who, and Allah subhanho wa Taala is all Bountiful, and all knowing. So it's very important to
remember this because when we think of shameful things, we only think of shameful things of a physical nature. But there is nothing more shameful than deliberately disobeying Allah subhanaw taala knowing what Allah subhanaw taala has made halal, and haram, and deliberately knowingly going against that. So somebody's borrowing money on interest, for example, for a mortgage or for business or whatever it is doing something which is extremely an extremely shameful and maybe the most shameful because by borrowing money on interest or any money on interest or having to do anything with interest, this person is actually accepting a declaration of war from oneness vanadyl And if we
As Alassane Ouattara declared unsuitable Makara and there's nothing more shameful than that.
So shamefulness is not only to do with with the body or with any with that kind of stuff there it's or the way you dress or the way it has to do with the disobedience of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So in this Ayatollahs, radicalization,
orders you and and deceives you and persuades you to do shameful things meaning to disobey Allah subhanaw taala in one way or the other. Whereas Allah subhanaw taala has promised us His mercy and forgiveness. And therefore, it is something for us to think about when we take our decisions in life, whether we want to follow shatta or we want to follow the path that Allah subhanaw taala decreed, and and
degreed, but no Swatara, prescribed and showed us.
Now, there are five questions with regard to
if you look at the five questions that we are asked, or will be asked, when we meet a Muslim, and then on the day of judgment, you will see that all of them are related to risk. As soon as SLM said in the Hadith, the son of Adam and Eve Salah will not pass away from Allah will not move from his place in on the day on the on the on the radar of Russia, until he is asked about five things. And what are the five things? How did he live his life? How did he utilize his youth? What what with what means? did he earn his wealth? How did he spend his wealth? And what did he do with his knowledge, and this is a pyramid. Now, if you think about that, the first is with regard to the way
he lived his life, how did he use his time? The second is to do with you, how did you utilize his use, which is again time? The third one is how did he earn wealth? And the fourth one is how did you spend that wealth? And the fifth one is what did he do with the knowledge that was around that I gave him all of these things are questions related to risk and that is why risk is such an important matter for us to understand. So that we take the right decisions, because without that, on the Day of Judgment, we will May Allah protect us, we can be in very serious trouble. Now, there are six important matters that I want to
address in this presentation. First one is that risk is preordained, and Allah subhanaw taala is responsible for it. Number two, we have a choice about where we earn it from and where we spend it. Number three shaitan frightens us with poverty. But Allah Subhana Allah comforts as with this power number for both plenty and shortage artists, both plenty of plenty in our risk and shortage average both of these are tests. Number five, what to do if we have difficulties with risk and number six is the reason why we still need to work and inshallah we will
talk about all of these insha Allah. So let's begin from understanding one
absolutely critical point and believe me, if you understand this and if you We ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable this to permeate our hearts and to completely
Illuminate our hearts with this absolutely
firm belief and that is that the quantum of risk, the total quantity of risk is preordained and that Allah subhanaw taala has taken its responsibility
everything else is
the only choice we have is the way to get it
quantum is fixed.
Now, let me give you the the light for this the evidence for this in Surah Karanka both in IR number 62 Allah Svara said
Allah yo Soto rich Kalama Yasha Omen everybody we are Rula in Allah be equally Shay in alim. Allah says Allah subhanho data and largest the provision of whom He wills of His lives and restricts it, for whom He wills. Verily Allah subhanaw taala is the all knower of everything.
In Surah Surah Allah Samantha said in Rebecca ye Bozzuto is currently my Yasha over Yakubu in who can be a baddie hubiera Masirah which means Allah's router said and this is so poorly serasa Marissa and I are number 30. Truly your web and largest the provision for who
However he wills and restricts it for whom He wills. Verily, He is Ever all Noah and all sia of His slaves
in sort of the room I have 37 Allah's rather said our Amuro and Allah ye Bozzuto rich Kalama Yasha yascha Zero in Nafisa Lika is tilicho me, you know, do they not see that Allah subhanaw taala and largest the provision of whom He wills and restricts it, for whom He wills verily in that are indeed signs for people who believe
in Sudoku Subbu Allah subhanaw taala told us that he is the one who decides so Saba is 36 Allah's radicalism called in rugby mo Soto Risca Lima Yasha Well, yep, do what can occur NASCI lie on the moon, unless it say Obama Salalah Ali was ALLAH verily my rub and larges and restricts provision to whom He pleases, but But most people do not know.
In surah Saba Allah's rather also mentioned, the issue of rewards, especially a reward for what we spend in charity, the investment we made in charity, and those around us in holy Nairobi also tourists Kalama Yasha Amin everybody where cadoola WOMMA un* auto min Shay in vo you Khalifa whoa, whoa Pharaoh Raja pin. I was rather as it said all Mohammed Salam and this is your Saba, I have 39 He said said Truly my rub enlarge is the provision for whom He wills of His slaves and also restricts it for him whoever He wills and whatsoever you spend on anything in Allah subhanho data has cause he will replace it and he is the best of providers.
In some of the shura, unless Amanda mentioned I am number 12 low mccolley to Samajwadi what are the Yabo Soto risk Halima Yasha way up liro In a hole equally Shay in Alim to him Jana Jana who belong the keys of the heavens and the earth, He enlarges provision for whom He wills and restricts it for whom He wills. Verily, He is the all knower of everything.
Now risk is a sign of Allah subhanaw taala This is one of the ayatollahs talents one of the Zoomer is number 52. I'm not sure where that is in our lamea Allah and Allah Yabba Soto riska, Lima Yasha, we have zero in visa legal till he called me you know, Allah said, do they not know that Allah Serato data and logic is the provision of whom He wills and restricts it, for whom He wills verily in this science for people who believe
these are not the these are not all this is related to risk in the Quran, there are many more I have taken. I think it's enough for me for this
lecture, because we want to keep it short, I have given you enough evidence, to show that first of all, all of these ideas are meant to comfort us, Allah subhanaw taala saying, Don't worry about your risk, leave it to Allah, Allah saying, I am powerful enough to take care of you. I have enough in my treasures to take care of you. So why don't I just think about this? I mean, this is such a shameful thing for us to why because this is the one robber I mean, who created the heavens and the earth and all that it contains all that we know and we don't know. And we think that he cannot provide us with one loaf of bread and what kind of mentality is this? And if that is the case, why are we even
worshipping Allah's mantra, we worship Allah subhanaw taala because he can do all of this and more. So Allah is saying all of this is really meant to comfort us, we are asked not to worry not to stress ourselves, but only to ensure that we we are making the right choices.
Right only to to ensure that we make the right choice. This is the only thing that Allah subhanaw taala is asking us to make sure that we do because otherwise, the issue is that if we make the wrong choices, then we get into trouble. That's for this reason, and that the question on the Day of Judgment, which I mentioned to you before, are only about the means of earning and the ways of spending. There's no question about the amount that we earned unless rather I will not ask you and me how is it you did not become a billionaire Elon Musk was a billionaire
Now Allah will not ask you a question. Allah will ask you Where did you come from? Where did you spend it? The same question you will ask me the same question he will ask any person, any believer who goes before Allah subhanaw taala
is a question of course to everybody else. But if you are if the person was not even a believer in the first place, then this question will not come to him the question for him will be Who do you worship and if you do not worship Allah Samantha that's a different story. Now unless there is another hold again mentioned, well I mean that but in fill out the Illa Allah Allah He risco ha, well, yeah, Allah Mustafa Raha almost old AHA coloane fie kita been been in salt Road in Iowa, number six, and not around that is it and no moving living creature is there on earth. But that is provisional, is due from Allah subhanaw taala every living moving creature on the face of the
planet, and la semana para is responsible for its provision for its risk. And he JELA general who He Allah subhanaw taala knows it's dwelling place and its deposit where it's going to die. It's great. Allah is all is mentioned and written out in a clear book, which is allowed muffles now, again, this is the issue of risk. And Allah's rather saying there is not only you have every single living being,
every insect, every microbe, every mammal, every reptile, every fish, every bird, every creature of any description, those we know and we don't know all of them, and their provision is from Allah Subhana Allah and Allah Subhana Allah knows
where that creature was born and where did you build like
everyone sisters, Allah tells us that our sisters is in the heavens and not in our hands or efforts unless around it takes an oath by himself and declares that this is the truth as true as the fact that we speak intelligently to one another.
I'll tell you a very beautiful
story about this. Let me first tell you I am in Surah Zarya I am number 22 and 23 Unless rather zero fish summer it is Coco. What am I to do? For fish summer it is Coco Walmart Rado and in the heaven is your in the in the in the skies in the heavens is your provision and that which you are promised, for rugby summer evil or the in whole, Huck Mithila and come down the horn, then by the rubber of the heaven and your allies taking an oath by himself? This is the truth what is the truth that your risk is in the heavens? And what has been promised to you? Just as it is the truth that you can speak intelligently to one another? Let me tell you a beautiful story of Mr. Jose Rahmatullah Les,
even when I was a wrestler, he was one of the great scholars of this deed. And he had his own mother
called resign him as a which was something like we have the Hanafi mother been the Shafi mother Azhar, Allah, Allah in His wisdom, give more prominence and more popularity to mama Shafi Baba Imam Abu Hanifa, nomadic and so on. But, so the mom was always nice Muslim is not
is not widely practiced, probably not even practiced at all, Allah Allah. But he is is considered to be one of the great scholars of Islam and his rulings and so on so forth are in all the books of faith and they are consulted, and he's usually respected and to be respected stories. You have Mr. Jose Angela Lee, and he's he's written the story himself. He said that he was going on for Amara, and the caravan that he was traveling in the villa.
He said that one at one point this car villa was attacked by a band of highway robbers. And this used to be a common thing in that part of the world as late as
as late as probably 1930s 1940s 1940s 1930s 1940s or early 50s
Hutch caravans and these caravans which are going for digging pilgrims, they used to be attacked by highway robbers and so on and looted because they knew that these pilgrims are going to the holy places for a long period of time. So obviously, they would be carrying provisions and money and so on. So these people, they would attack them and they would lose them. So if I was there when I was traveling the scatola and he was the karma
was attacked by a man of hybridomas. And supposedly we were the kind of confusion people as people screaming whatnot. Some people got hurt and whatnot. Suddenly our other ocular, he found himself he was standing there and the, the the gang leader of the cyber robbers with a naked sword in his hand. He came in front of cameras.
And he said to him,
one, so now this great image of this great chef, this great teacher, he didn't say I'm so and so and this is what he said, I am a teacher.
And he said, I'm Jose then he says, The man said, what do you do?
He said, I'm a teacher, I teach children Quran.
He said, I teach you know,
the higher our said, so read some Quran for me, you said some Quran.
Even when all that said it just is what I am, Buffy sama it is Coco mama to adore.
And in the heavens is your risk and whatever you have been promised.
You don't have other sisters. It's not a matter of the beauty of the Thilawa in the sense of the the sound of it. It's not music, it's not a song. When somebody who lives by the Quran recites Quran mentioned Quran, it has a different effect and that's the reason why we need to live by the VA.
So if our other artillery he said what was for his wife is summer it is Coco palmata. In the heavens is your provision and all that you will promised this higher our this man standing with a naked sword in his hand, his his hand started to shiver. The sword fell from his hand. He said this is the Quran. And I was I rockin I said yes. He said you in this is Allah subhanaw taala his word. This is Allah speaking.
Well, as I said, Yes.
He said, My Risk is in the heavens, this is true. As I said, Yes, this is what Allah say.
Once again, why am I doing this work?
He said, Why am I then doing this work? Why am I Roma? Why am I rooting people?
So he then said to my molars I called his people. He said, Come, they all came.
He said, our risk is in the heavens. So we will ask Allah for this. There's no need to do this work. Because this work is haram. This is robbery is haram.
So he said,
I'm making Toba now, and my whole band Wolfgang, and making Toba now, and we are giving up this work of hybridity.
The resolution of only one eye.
Of course, everybody was very happy.
All the whatever they had routed, they returned all their material, all their goods to them. And the band of robbers are extroverts because they have to make
And as I said, that is that I we are very thankful be Tantalus America as we continued our journey is every schmuck. I made obrah
He said after that one day, very early in the morning, he said we can go off and I heard
I heard somebody crying. And he said, the way the person was weeping was so pathetic, as if a person is in complete despair, so tragic. And allows after he
gives an example which is very graphic and very powerful. He said it is it was like a woman would weep, whose child was taken out of our A via a mother with a baby. If the baby was snatched from our hands and the throat of the baby was cut and the baby was given back slaughtered in front of his mother's eyes. How that one would we get such tremendous tragedy.
Sima masa is author he says I was absolutely. When I when I heard his weeping, he said it really affected me. So I looked and he said there was this man who that leader of the band of robbers.
He said he was sitting in front of the Cava looking at the Kaaba and he's making thought was ultramarathon is weeping like this.
Almost like like as if it's a despair. So also in our tradition, I went to him and the man looked up to me and he said, I decided the second part second i power up Is he worthy in whole hog
Mithila on the
He said by the rub of the heaven and the earth, then by the rub power of the summer he will not. Allah is taking an oath by himself by the rub of the heavens and the earth. This is the truth, what is the truth? What he had told him then of his summer is that your risk is levels and whatever you're promised,
and Allah has given example and saying this is the truth is as true as you talk to each other.
Now amazing, this man looks up to up at him. And he said, Allah, Allah took an oath.
He said, Allah took an oath for me, to convince me,
Allah to can also that I would believe His word.
He said, Why does the latter take an oath? Who am I?
Am nothing, why does my Rob Gela general who have to take an oath to convince me
and that is is the man was a simple man. He was not an early he was not a great scholar.
So he did not have all the all the hijab, but all the curtains that color our perception, our meaning is talking about the scholars. He said it was a simple man, the Quran straight entered his heart. He said, This is the word of Allah. This is Allah speaking to me. And Allah is telling me he's taking an oath to convince me he said, Who am I am nothing.
I was just as I don't really don't have to say anything more.
Just this one story with these two atoms in a force.
Ask yourself and ask myself many years ago
Did Allah speak the truth?
Do we believe Allah?
If we believe Allah, then remove from this moment onwards, remove every figure every doubt.
Every worry, every concern about risk from your heart and thirdly,
because of his summer in his cocoa, let's say you are risk is in the heavens. And Allah subhanaw taala in rugby yobbos, for tourists California we have
and that's it say, Oh, I was born in Nairobi. Yep. Zuto risk anemia shall we say oh Salam verily and truly my rubbish the one who will give any will give, expand and constrict.
So we must make a choice. Allah subhanaw taala said Allahu Latif, whom be ready years Okuma Yeshua whoa Covey EULA Aziz Mancha, Yuri do Hertha sera de Nasi the lofi Hirsi woman Gara. Yuri to her for dunya naughty him in her ha. Omar, the Whoville Filati mean Nasai Allah, Allah says oh, the shura I 19 and 20 Gracious is Allah Serrano dalla to his slaves, he gives sustenance to oh, he pleases and he has the power and carry out and can carry out His will
he gives, and he has the power to give
to any that desires to those who desire the tooth, the harvest of the year after the ACA, we give increase in is still to give increase in that and to any that desires the tilt of this world, meaning at the expense of the ACA.
Somebody wants this word only. Allah says We grant somewhat, they're off. But that person has no share in the
we asked us around $1 to protect us from this.
Allah's wrath also wants those of us who hanker after his life, that if he were to increase our provision, we will become rebellious.
People say we're all engaged I was told like give me money, give me more money.
Give me wealth.
There's not there is no problem in asking for help and risk. But asking for wealth asking for more power, more authority more money is very dangerous. As soon as Ron did not ask, he did not tell people to ask
the two stories as I became Muslim, and asked him for this he said yella jasola Salah please make dua that Allah has increased my risk. No soon as I've said your risk has been written. Don't ask this to our
he insisted and he kept on pestering him. So, unless there was a major Seola increases risk. Now, this man was a was a was a
farmer he was he was he achieved and so on. So this now is rock started increasing,
more and more used to live close to the masjid Majid Nawaz Sharif. And he used to come for all the five prayers and pray behind his Asana. But now it is animals, number of animals increased he couldn't live in the same place. So he had to go and live outside of Medina. He was far away from the Masjid. So for a long time, he stopped coming to the masjid, there was a lot of ask people to say where is this Arizona, us living outside,
far away, so he's not able to go anyway, that continue for some time. And then the time came for payment of Sokka.
So when the Zakat collectors or association are meant to is mad, and they calculated the Zakat that was due for him,
obviously, because he or now a lot of wealth, the amount of zakat also or more, this man said, Oh, this is too much. And
after all, I worked so hard, and so on and so forth. And now you want me to just give away this much. The character said, Look, this is these academies do for you. You want to give, don't give that's up to you. But this is the guy that is you from you.
The man didn't pay.
So now they came back. And they told me this is your solar, this is what happened. And he was not giving us
that we did not say anything. He remained silent.
Now this, this heavier, no, it's by the savvy, this RV the next day.
I mean, in the night, he must have realized that what I've done is wrong. And I should not have done it. So next day he came he brought the amount of sheep or or whatever it was the animals that was calculated and he had been informed. He brought this and came to resources.
And he said yes, well I'm sorry I did not give it last night. Here is their personas are a subset Allah and is the we are not in need of yours. I can take it away.
He refused to accept it.
The man went to it.
The following year, when it was time for before it was time for before 12 months had passed. So sensitive passed away.
He passed away and so I was on the line who was the FeliCa
on time before the Zakat collectors would go to him he brought
our CDs or they'll answer the one from home. The Messenger of Allah did not take over cannot take and he did not take
two years later. And the same thing happened next year. Two years later, the alabaster sends an alarm to begin the same story.
And this man was never able to pay zakat because they would not accept it. And he died in that state.
Right. Think about this
increasingly wealth. Second story
is a story about Alwaleed bin Abdul Malik the miroir, the Khalifa of Manomaya
he came for ombre and as you were making dog he realized that the person next to him was as him him now Mr. YBNL SEPTA, or the Allah one one, the younger son of our Nakata Raveena he was making tough.
So, I'll worry looked at him and he saw that as you may know Merville sobre la the LA noir was dressed in very simple clothes and you know,
he looked like a poor man right. So, maybe his clothes at some patches or something a lot of the best anyway, so, while they were making toffee, tried to tell him you know, can I help you can I do something? But he realized from his countenance from his expression that he did not like this. So he kept quiet.
When they finish or as I everything else, and when they went out of the hara
and worried when
have the money been Marwan? Remember this is the king, this is the Khalifa of the Muslims.
He said to us him
given our melanoma, he said to him, please tell me can I help you? Is there anything I can do for you? Do you need anything from me?
So as I said to him, do you all this word?
He said no, I don't know.
In this world,
he said, for this world and its needs, I do not even ask the one who owes this world. Why will ask you?
He said for this world and what it contains, which is well, then this is that, he said I do not even ask the one who owns this word, which is ALLAH SubhanA them, he said, why will ask you?
I will This is just again as I said, there's no harm in making dua for Halal risk. But making dua just for money and you're like give me more, this is highly highly inadvisable.
First and foremost,
Allah has already written
and making dua to give more is not going to change that.
And if we are going to ask for more, and even like gives more, because maybe that is the other, that if you ask Allah will give
what comes with it can be very problematic. And that's what I want to
explain to you. So Allah subhanaw taala warns us, that those of us who hanker after this life, if he were to increase our provision, we would become rebellious, and this would become a masiva for us. And so therefore, a shortening our provision, is really a sign of Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala because it is in order that we may be protected from punishment for transgression. Allah subhanaw taala said, One obasan love or risk la vida de la Whoville of the Walla hacking unit zero Bukhari MIOSHA. In Hobi, Abadi hobby room Rasul. Allah says, the shura is 27. And if Allah subhanaw taala were to enlarge the provision for slaves, they will surely rebel in the earth, but He sends down by
measure in measured quantities as He wills verily He is in respect of his lives, well aware, and the all CEUs
so when we find that the risk is a little bit short, don't worry about it. This has been a lie data, they decided that this Baraka in that and Allah is giving us because he wants the best for us data and Allah swatter progress frightens us with poverty, but Allah subhanaw taala comforts us with this hour unless one other tells us not to be misled by shatter into believing that we earn by our effort and that if we did not do forbidden things, Chief of them being riba chief of them being boring on interest or dealing with forbidden things for example dealing in lottery tickets and tobacco and alcohol and for products and pornographic literature and whatnot all the all the garbage and all the
harms that is there for example in in our convenience stores in this country in America most of them are owned by Muslims so sad so tragic, right almost is bordering on interest for to for their businesses to buy houses, mortgages, whatnot. People watch our interests even by DVSA for example I mean imagine haram haram
so Shatin cases if you didn't do that you will become poor there is no but this is America this is the wise this is prettier for 21st century all this is okay that I mean these rules are everywhere and so on are old fashioned. No, no no please understand this. This is shatta inviting us to destroy ourselves unless rather on the contrary promises forgiveness in bounties that's AI it is for us to ask ourselves who's promises do we believe unless Rana tell us or shaytans
share does aim is obvious unless Rhonda says I shaytan oh yeah dokumen fakra Well, yeah, Moroccan will fascia Wallah Oh yeah. You to come up with a min who formula Wallah who was even Eileen. Allah rather as Ajay Dan threatens you with poverty and orders you commit fascia shameless deeds, whereas Allah subhanaw taala promises you forgiveness from himself and bounty and Allah is all sufficient for his creatures needs. And he's the all nor he knows what we need and he has the power to give us what we need. As I mentioned to fascia shamelessness is not restricted to physical shamelessness, how you dress and so on and so forth. Shame it is highly shameful to disobey Allah subhanaw taala
knowingly clearly and knowing that what he told us and we do the opposite.
So if you are bordering on interest, if you are buying and selling things which are haram, this is the ultimate of shamelessness.
And let's write the lens okay Brian well as Roger said, Bacala shaitan Allah who the Aramburu in Allah wa Docomo, Viva la
to come for us enough to come raka Alia la kumin Sutar in
the hour to come first job to Lee filata Looney Hello Mo and Fusa Khun ma Anna be Masahiko woman to be more sci fi in need for it to be a shock to many men cover in Azadi mean allow other women early shaitan will say on the Day of Judgment when the matter has been decided when the decree or Jana has been given. Verily, Allah promised you a promise of truth. And I too promised you but I betrayed you.
I have no authority over you, except that I called you and you responded to me. So do not blame me blame yourself for the loony wallow and forcible said landed on yourself. I cannot help you nor can you help me. I deny my former act in as I denies your former act in associating me as a partner with Allah by obeying me in the life of the world. Remember when we overshot ah, this is shook because we are obeying shatta instead of being ultramarathon so we making partners verily, there is a painful moment for the zani Moon
runs is just risk provision both it's plenty and it shortage artists. And how we behave in plenty are in shortage determines our future.
somebody went to barber shop in LA and they said that you say that the one who disobeyed his Allah will be punished. But we see that people who disobeyed Allah, they're getting more and more. They're disobeying Allah subhanaw taala openly they are doing all kinds of haram but they are becoming wealthier, they become more powerful, and they are able to do various things. So how is this true? Now a shout out to LA recited this is off solos with Anna unless we're gonna set for Lamin Asuma Dooku be Fatah. Hana Allah him above a poolish a hashtag for your OB ma Auto has now home biodata for is our home mobility soon. Now otira die we will homie Levina wala Whoa, what hamdulillah your
OB Alameen Allah subhanaw taala said so when they forgot the warning with which they had been reminded when they forgot the warning. So they were told do not do * Do not commit Zina Do not oppress people do not be xylem do not borrow money on interest and do not indulge in Hana, whatever, that they ignore all this. So when they forgot the warning with which they have been reminded, what did ally immediately catch them? No, unless we open to them the gates of every pleasant thing.
So they got now more and more of what they wanted. Until in the midst of the enjoyment of that which they were given. All of a sudden, we took them to punishment. All of a sudden they were grabbed. And then punishment. We do that by law, they were plunged into destruction with deep regret and sorrows.
So the roots of the people who did wrong got cut off, and all praise and thanks to Allah robbing me, Rob of all that exists. My brothers sisters, you don't have to look very far. Read history. See, what has become of those who at one time thought that the rule the world?
Where is Alexandria the so called Great? When Julius Caesar the so called Great Caesar becomes the name of the game of the king of season. There was his personal name.
Where is the mascot? The man who ruled the largest land empire ever in the world?
Where are all the kings and queens?
What happened to all their power and what happened to all the will?
When will you be aware will I be
think about this?
And what does Allah do? So I was having
when they asked him when they asked him this question, he decided this to if and he said that when you see somebody disobeying Allah, when you see somebody indulging in Allah, deliberately, knowingly that person is indulging in Haram.
Know that the ALAB of Allah and you and you see that that person's worth is increasing. The know that the other of Allah has already begun on that person.
Somebody is borrowing on interest and their business is increasing.
Somebody is selling her
stuff in the business is increasing.
Somebody is doing haram stuff somebody is oppressing, and their kingdom is increasing. And their power in it was increasing, whatever the case might be. You have a shopper out there and he said, know that the Azov of Allah, the punishment of Allah has already started because the doors of hygge of guidance have been shut for them. And Allah has opened the doors of every pleasant thing of this world for them. And then one day, suddenly they will be grabbed, in the midst of their employment, and they will be they will despair, because they will not even be given the opportunity and the chance to make a step aren't over.
Straight to Jannah
let's understand this, let's not get carried away like the people who saw carvone and destroy him. gwagwalada is in a great procession with great pomp and splendor those over people of the Alaska dimension all these either the Quran, those who who hankering after the dunya there's oh we wish we were like how
are we wish that ALLAH given us the Quran
and then when Cairo was
sunk into the earth, and destroys nd
then this or oh my god, this is what happened.
You start become like people
who get dazzled by the show and pomp and splendor of what we see in the world. So as far as power, so and so I've got private jets. So so I've got this fancy car, so and so got a million dollar billion dollar house,
the Honda hotel,
they have all of this, but not one of them can control a sneeze, if they need to see they cannot stop it, if they want to see it, they cannot bring it up.
They cannot control what's in their own bubbles. When they got to go, they got to go. They can't stop it and they can't break it off. They can't control a breath that they take. If they get COVID For some reason, they have respiratory failure.
They cannot they cannot bring it back.
I can give you endless examples, I don't need to because I'm sure you're intelligent enough to find out the examples yourself.
It is not a desert Belle this
hold on to the straight and narrow path that is stuck in the path of steadfastness, the path of Sabbath,
the bottom is covered
which goes to gender only one road goes to gender
every road does not go to gender.
And that road which goes to them is the road of also Eliza Leisel. Now, I told you about the test of plenty now if there is if you are tested with with little suppose that you are in debt or supposing you don't have debt and we should not have debt. But if you do have debt for whatever reason, even if it's debt without interest is still debt and or if we have we don't have debt, but we have straitened circumstances, financial difficulties. Let me just said give give some he said give charity. So first and foremost do that give charity and secondly this dua which has also taught us and this is theory, Allah McWeeny we halali can harvick wherever Nene before the legal hamotzi work
along mccreaney Behala Lika anharmonic wherever Nene before the Lika Amman Sivak Oh ALLAH suffice me with what you have allowed, instead of what you are forbidden and make me independent of all others, except you besides you. And this is in the video we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us this. Now, final question.
If all of this is true, and of course it is true that by risk is ordained it is a habit and so on so forth, then why should I work?
Why should I make any effort
at all also said when I said Insightly Lavasa lesson for you being only what he works for, so why should I work? We work to establish the rules of Allah subhanaw taala on the earth, we work to earn Jana because the place to agenda is this word. So we earn here in the right way to agenda we spend what we have we spend in the path of Allah agenda. That is the reason we work we don't work to make money.
We work to please Allah subhanaw taala we work to present the way of living Islam as a result of Islam. We work to establish the rules of Allah subhanaw taala on the face of the earth, and last Mandela permitted us to work and I said yeah, he will again I want to know the early Sala Tamiya mill Giamatti. First out, Isla de la he was ruled by radical highroller Cominco to Dynamo. For example, dia de Sala to dasheroo Villa de wobba. Home informed Lila was provoca sera la home to floor and last Tara permitted
has to work and told us how to do that unless you believe, when the call is proclaimed when the other for the Salat of Juma when the call of Salah to the dear friend is Juma is called First our elastic Rila Allah said run towards the vicar of Allah was all by leave your selling. Right leave your business by is
used to sell and specifically analyzing selling because that's why we do business we sell to make money to make profit Allah saying leave that and rush towards the vicar of Allah. Allah did not sound too long ago trawl straw, no fuss, how illogical
was always leave everything, leave every other thing and go, let it go into the elbow. It is better for you if you did that, if only you knew. And then Allah said and when the Juma Salah is finished, Fanta Judo Villa live up top for the law, you may disperse to the land and seek the boundary of Allah by working trade whatever. And remember Allah subhanaw taala great deal that you may be successful with Kuru locka Thea en la lagoon two flavone Allah say, when the de when the Salah is finished, then you may spread in the on the earth. Again, remember, for the Salah, Allah said leave everything and go to the salah. As far as the bounty of Allah is concerned, Allah did not say leave
the Salah and go and search No, Allah said, you may do that if you like. But as you will have, if you will, like doing it, do it. And what I will search for the bounty of Allah. Allah did not say create it. Allah did not say work for it. Allah did not say you
make it yourself No. Search, we'll just search what does it mean? It means it is already there. Just go look for it, pick it up,
look for it and pick it up.
said we cannot search for something by if I tell you if you're sitting here in your room is a search for diamonds.
I don't know how many of you have diamonds lying around. Right.
But if I in my room for example, if we search for books, I've got a whole bunch of books behind me in my in my shelf.
I can search for them because they're aged.
So financial Villa villa, the Octomom vanilla means what spread in the earth, like do that do that permissible, short for is not something which is compulsory, permissible and search for it because you are going to get what's already done for you. Go pick it up.
Go pick it up. And while you're doing that, don't forget to
do a lot of zikr in that there is success for you Allah did not see that success for you when searching for is it's such a beacon of Allah. So definitely we are permitted to work we are permitted to do business we are permitted to search for the father of Allah for the blessing of Allah. But we are told how to do that. Do that with the vicar of Allah remembering Allah subhanaw taala constantly do that. What my brothers sisters, we work so that the world will look at us and say there goes a Muslim, our life is better, because he lives among us. We work so that when we are gone, it will be said We regret his passing. He fought for our rights. He alleviated our suffering,
he helped us in need, he gave us hope. And he lighted our path. Work is thou to Islam.
They will say and we hope they will say he challenged us to be the best that we could be by being a living example of the best that he could be.
The world is a better place today. Because he or she walked the earth. Why do we work we work to please Allah. We work because
unless we're hunters but we did us and in order to make our Asherah better.
Final point, which I want to mention to you and with an illustration.
And remember what we're making here is that the quantum of sustained as a part of our risk is fixed.
The way to obtain it has been given in our control. We can obtain it through permissible means or through repeated means we will get it
haram or Halal we will get it
but we will have to answer you will be asked about the way not about the amount. Imagine for yourself that there is your standing in front of a warehouse which is made entirely of glass
entirely of glass and you will see the I believe I've drawn a little diagram to show so this is warehouse which is
made entirely of glass.
You standing in front of their warehouse and through the glass door. You can see everything and this warehouse as your hold is for example. So this warehouse as your spouse, your family, your money, knowledge, your health,
you know everything whatever is in the nature of sustenance for you in this life is in this warehouse and you can see it. Imagine this
as warehouse has two doors on either side. On one side the door is called halaal or on the other side to go to is called haram. Both the doors have
sensors and these sensors, they they have retina scanners. So when you stand in front of the door, the sensor looks at your eyes and the door opens for you. Now this is unique to you. It because our retina image is unique to us. And the door for me cannot be opened by anybody else. So imagine now that you are standing in front of the door which is marked haram and you're and because you're standing in front of the door, the door is open.
Now as you're about to walk into that a good friend of yours who seeing this, he calls out to you and says stop.
He said look
whatever is in that warehouse is yours. Whatever.
Just don't enter it from this door. Go to the other side. There's a door called halaal which works with the same technology that it is a scam. That door will open for you enter that warehouse through the door marked Hello. Do not enter it from the door but Hara
Nothing is going to change what is the warehouse is the warehouse whether you go from this door or that door makes no difference. Nothing will be more because you came from this door nothing will be less because we came from that door. Whichever door you go for the quantity the number of stuff than our thing is aware of and the same. Just don't enter it from the door marked haram enter it from the door Mark Helen this is your friendly
so now supposing you say to the friend Look, I am standing in front of this door the door
that door is shut
How do I know it to be open and
believe me, I'm telling you this is what will happen because this is the this is the Promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala this is the this is the Emanuel vibe
so now when I turn around the door shuts because sensor is not seeing my eyes.
Now panic is oh my god this door is shut now that is already shut what I will get nothing. I will I will stop I will die
this is our condition today.
This is our condition what do we need to do? We need to believe that friend Nogales and who is that guide that guide is Mohammed also license and
I don't say friend because I'm not equal to the processor
but is no one who is a better friend of the OMA than the profit center center.
He's telling us just go around just go around to the side
there is a door and that door will open in the same way at this one open for you that will open for you and you go in you get exactly the same things and you are home and dry you will actually be rewarded by Allah subhanaw taala for coming to this door but instead of that if you insist on going to the doormat haram you are going to be punished
don't do that.
Don't do that
level sisters, this is the
bottom line this is what
right there's nothing more or less than this. This is the word just pick up this go from the right source take it from the right source. Nothing will change you will not become poor you will not become wealthy.
What is written for you I may is it for you and me that will not change. This used the right source. I hope this is a I hope I've been clear this finally to close the best advice a lot rather they gave us Zuloaga and number 16 and 17 But Allah mustard Otto was marrow or do unviewable hyrulean Vusi comb my yoga show Hanafy for hula hoop Road in tow curricula follows on Hazara use our if for lack home via law
Como la Hoelscher cool and Haleem Allah said so keep your duty of Taqwa of Allah subhanho data and keep that and have this Taqwa as much as you can.
Listen and obey
and spend in charity and that is better for you. And whoever is saved from his own greed, they are successful. If you lend to Allah a good lord, meaning if you spend in charity, he will double it, he will increase it for you, He will return it to you and He will return more and he will forgive you. And Allah subhanaw taala is ever ready Most Ready to appreciate and to reward and is the most forgiving. final reminder, risk or sustenance is linked to deeds and behavior and the obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala and not to our fancy clever schemes and effort. Material increase that comes to haram brings pain and suffering and fear and distress.
Focus on deeds focus on pleasing Allah Subhana Allah will take care of you and Allah said, Man, I mean asylee hum min Zachary in our buta Wahoo mineral, for another Yana who hire for Yeva Dongwon what an agenda home ajira Home, we asked any mark and
Allah says hold on the hand 97 Whoever works, righteousness, whoever does good deeds, whether male or female, while he or she is a true believer, very need to him
or her. We Allah subhanaw taala will give a good life in this world hasn't they've a beautiful life in this world, and we shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do, which is done.
Ask Allah subhana della della Delano to fill our hearts with His love with love for him, and with his Kashi with his all and majesty and glory and his Taqwa with a fear of displeasing him and to enable us to make the right choices and live our lives according to His will. And the Sunnah of his messenger Mohammed Salah Ali usually use Epson so that we will have a beautiful life in this dunya agenda to fill those in the afternoon. Robert has a lot of nachos and I will have the fill out our ham that then upon the facility, open up a Filipina lobera Coffee Rhonda NASA you at the bottom of
