Salam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. This Mala will handle the LAO salatu salam ala Rasulillah alumna alumna Mei and founder and founder Vemma alum Tana was in that element. Yeah, I mean, we ask Allah azza wa jal teachers would benefit us benefit from what you told us and increase us in knowledge. My dear beloved brothers and sisters, ask Allah azza wa jal to make me a new from the people who apply what they learn.
We always hear about the word Baraka.
And we know that Baraka the closest translation is blessings.
We feel sometimes that we have lost the burqa in our lives. We lost the baraka in our time in our homes, in our children in our wealth in our health.
And tonight in sha Allah Tala, we will be discussing a few methods to bring the baraka back to our life. First of all, let's define Baraka. One of the most beautiful definitions of Baraka is the attachment of divine goodness to something, attachment of divine goodness to something that will make that something mobilock.
Okay. And another definition is baraka is the abundance of goodness and its continuity,
the abundance the abundance of goodness and its continuity.
Another definition, the maximum benefit, with little provision, maximum benefit with little provision, all these definitions
bring close to our mind, the meaning of of Baraka, the burqa, when it comes to the little it makes it abundant.
And when it makes when it comes to the abundant, it makes it blessed Subhan Allah, so
how to bring Baraka back to our life. First, we will discuss how to bring Baraka in general. Okay, how to bring burka in general? Allah subhanho wa Taala told us that one of the ways to bring baraka to our life is through Iman and Taqwa having faith in Allah, true Eman, true faith and Allah and having Taqwa of Allah azza wa jal being conscious of Allah subhanho wa taala. Eman to have the six pillars of Eman applied in our life believing in Allah believing in His in the angels believing in the books believing in the messengers in the day of judgment and the destiny is good and evil. All of these are established in me. I have no doubt in any of them. I believe in them. I apply them in
my life. I live by the Six Pillars of iman
Taqwa one of the most beautiful definitions of Taqwa is from Ali or the Allahu and he said, a tequila el hopeful Meenal jahleel While amylopectin zeal while Karna to build Khalil, while instead dad, Leona Raheel beautiful, beautiful meaning. He said Taqwa is fear of the magnificent fear of Allah. Eman in the Revelation. Being content with the litsen and always ready for the day of departure. This is taqwa. So Eman and Taqwa will guarantee Baraka blessing in our life, in everything in our life. Another thing that will bring Baraka in all our life in general, is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said, in Allah had Allah yet to tell you a lab, female
Allah, Allah will test someone with whatever he gave them, whatever he blessed him with Allah with customers with our children with our health with our wealth, Allah will test us with what he gave us.
In radhey, Habima custom Allah booty color who he was,
if I am content with that test, if I am content with whatever Allah is testing me with a samosa sallam said then Allah who will put Baraka in that thing and expand it was
when lamb Yoda lamb you about
UCLA and if somebody complains and are not content with what Allah subhanaw taala is testing them with, then there will be no Baraka in their life. So, when we are being tested, we should be content and be happy with whatever Allah decreed, and we put our trust in Allah xojo. Now, specifically, those two are Baraka in general. Now, how about having Baraka in business? Some people who are listening to us, they are maybe real estate agents, car salesmen, they are in trade, export, import, whatever business you are in, how can I have Baraka in that business? Okay, listen to what rasool Allah SallAllahu Sallam and the hadith is in Bukhari, both parties, if they are doing a business
transaction, they have right they have the right to cancel the deal, as long as they did not depart. And then Allah Sosa Salam said, if they tell the truth, and make everything clear about that transaction, Allah will put Baraka in that transaction. And if they conceal something, and lie about the product, the blessing in that transaction will be eliminated.
Example, I am selling a car to somebody.
I tell the person that this car is excellent and everything, but it has a problem in for example, transmission. I told them
that there is a problem in the transmission. I clarified everything, if he likes it and bought it hamdulillah there would be Baraka in that transaction. But if I lied, oh, everything is good. Everything's beautiful. The guy bought it. One month later, the car broke down. There's no broken even if you made millions of dollars, somebody, I'm selling someone a house. And I know that there is a leak somewhere. There's some kind of defect in that house. And I did not tell them about it. And I was I made so much money from that deal. And I'm so happy. I'm shrewd businessman. This is how we think Subhan Allah, no, even though you could have made a million dollars in that transaction,
there will be no Baraka in that wealth.
But if you clarified everything,
and you told the truth about the product,
Allah will put Baraka even though you could have made just a little bit of profit. This is how we have Baraka in our wealth, especially if it's coming from from business.
If we are
working for a job, how can we get Baraka in that income? He who accepts wealth rightly Allah put blessing on it for him, and he who takes wealth without any right he is like the one who eat and never satisfied. What does that mean?
I am content with my job. I do not keep comparing myself to my cousin to my brother to my neighbor, I'm very happy I'm doing my best to get whatever I can get in a halal way. And I'm very happy with whatever Allah decreed I do my best I try. Allah will put baraka and every penny I earn, but if k I constantly complain, look at that guy. Look at this, why me? Why not him? Why did he get the promotion not me? Why did he get the bigger house not me, how did they get the bigger this than not me? Always not happy not content, then there will be no baraka and that income.
Third, Baraka in my children's marriage, how can I have every one of us who have children that they want them to get married, they would love them to have a happy life and be Baraka in that marriage.
Right Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that the best marriage is the one with the most reasonable manner, dowry.
The best marriage is the one with the most reasonable
Now, Subhan Allah, you hear about numbers presented by the family of the of the bride that are ridiculous 30,000 40,000 $50,000 Mad Subhan Allah of course, it is relative if the sub the person can afford it and have no problem the guy making million dollars a year and 20,000 30,000 is nothing for him hamdulillah if he can afford it, but sometimes we overburden
the groom with with it with with a number that he cannot handle. And sometimes that dowry will be a reason for divorce sometimes, or a reason for problems between the husband and the wife. So let's make our
Mahara affordable, affordable, whatever he can afford and hamdulillah melamine and make especially if the person is
well mannered and have deen the two characteristics that are so la Sallam told us about if he has them, and he can
provide for my daughter in a reasonable manner Bismillah let's not get carried get complicated and give them numbers that beyond imagination Subhanallah the best marriage is the one was the most reasonable, affordable matter. This is where the baraka is.
How about something that we all complain about? We have no baraka and our time Subhanallah yesterday I was recording for John now we are recording again. It time has gone by yesterday September started today's the end of September, you know Subhanallah there's no baraka and our time years are gone by no Baraka, how can we bring baraka and our time featured in Jamar for the brothers Fraser in congregation and for the sisters Fraser on time
that will bring Baraka in our time. How was the evidence Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself
may do for the people who started the day early. He said, Berek Allahumma Darrick Leon Mati feeble Korea ya Allah put Baraka in my ummah, in my nation, in my people, for the ones who start their day early, and is there any better way to start our day? Early, then starting it with the salaat with being in the house of Allah.
Get that habit of playing Fraser in Jamaica, and for my sisters to play it on time before the show comes and you will see the baraka in your time.
Baraka in our home, everybody wants Baraka in their homes, right? Subhan Allah a very simple method that Rasulullah Salem taught us how to get Baraka in our home.
advising one of the Sahaba he said, When you enter upon your family, give them Salam. It will be baraka for you and all the inhabitants of that house. Allahu Akbar.
When I first entered the house, my brothers and sisters please start applying when I first entered my home Bismillah A salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Whether there is someone in the house or there is no one in the house,
just saying salam, it will bring baraka to you and to every member of that household. Very simple, say, salam, when you enter the house, that's a prescription from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Next, my brothers and sisters,
you want Baraka in your life?
Is your mother or your father are still alive?
If they are, run to them, kiss their hand and say, Mom, that Baba, Mama, please ask Allah to put Baraka in my life. Tell your parents to make dua of baraka for you.
They are the source of Barca.
They are to you, they have to have for you is Mr. Jab is answered. Ask them to ask Allah to put Baraka in your life. And at the same time you and your wife
and my sister, you and your husband, make dua of baraka for your children.
Allah put Baraka yeah Allah put Baraka in every thing that you blessed my children with, put Baraka in their spouses put Baraka in their wealth, put Baraka in their house, put butter, getting your grandchildren put back in everything Jamba make baraka for your children. And finally, last sort of loss I sent them taught us in the DUA that we all make in Ramadan or in our everyday with Allah Medina if human had eight, why a funny theme and faith, whatever, Lenny fee mentor, we're late. We're bad Kelly FEMA tight, you could make that separate Allahumma barik li FEMA tight, yeah, Allah put Baraka in everything that you have bestowed upon me. Ask Allah, the source of baraka for Baraka,
in your life in everything that you have. Type is that anything that
Make the Tharaka disappear from my life.
Yes, you know what that is Reba
dealing with Reba
eliminates the baraka em Macula hold, em Hakala hurry Reba, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala will eliminate all kinds of blessings when we deal with riba where you will be sadaqat and Allah will put a lot of Baraka when we give in charity.
Finally, how do I know if I have Baraka? In my life? It's a question valid question. I want to check if I have dedicated my life or not my brother, my sister, in order to find out if you have Baraka in your life or not, check what Allah kept you busy doing?
What are you doing all day long? If you are busy by hamdulillah going to work in a halal job and providing for your family. And then when you finish, you take your kids to the masjid and you sit down and attend to halacha you're busy listening to a lecture, you're busy reading Quran, you're busy obeying Allah in any form or any manner. That's a great sign that Allah has put Baraka in your life.
And if you're not constantly occupied, you have no time for nothing. No time for the Masjid. No time for Quran. No time for your family. No time for your parents, no time for nothing. That's a sign that the park has been taken out of your life. May Allah baraka and all our life yeah, Allah asked you the best of your names for everybody who's watching us and their children and their parents. Yeah, Allah put Baraka in their lives. Allah make our last deeds, our best deeds. And our last words Ilaha illa Allah, I love you all for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah Allah behind the ignition Allah Allah Allah and stuff Europa on A to
