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

la ku politzer either.

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


00:00:55--> 00:01:36

defense 1000 alima all praise and glory be to a lovely thank him and we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure, his forgiveness and return to our love to protect us from evil whispers within us and the natural consequences of our misdeeds or whomever among guides, no one can the industry and will not probably not leaves the straightening guide. And we testify that no one is worthy of our worship, our devotion, our absolute love and surrender and obedience, but Allah alone for any markers, the true supreme King, and the Prophet Mohammed Salah law says it was the truth is profit, and his service and his messengers and the best of his creation, and the seal of the secret

00:01:36--> 00:01:58

revelations and the most beloved of the slaves of Allah Azza wa, oh, you have believed happens upon the law, uphold your duty to Allah, remain conscious of him remain obedient to Him, in the matter that he deserves, as best as you possibly can, and do not die except in that state in that state of commitment and surrender, loving and willing surrender to a state of Islam.

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

And to begin to welcome our brothers and my sisters to the house of a law of syllogism, I ask Allah to accept from us and you our mobile phones, and all our hard work in Ramadan, and continue to enable us with opportunities even after Ramadan perhaps even greater than normal.

00:02:20--> 00:02:31

And then we return back to a journey we began before this month, this blessing one that is now behind us. And that is a journey of the very special seven that the prophets of Allah spoke about.

00:02:34--> 00:02:37

When he said, set out to do home alone,

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

I believe

00:02:40--> 00:03:24

there will be seven for my mother will she will greci to on a day when there will be no shade, there will be no refuge, there will be no safety from the heat of the day of judgment, except those who need gretz shade for he said I just leader and a young man that spent his earliest years in the vert in the worship of home law. And a man whose hearts it's actually the massage and Sue that love one another for the sake of a lot they get together from law in the arts world law. And the fifth was a young man who was invited by a woman tempted by a woman of beauty and of status. And he abstained saying I fear on law. And today we have the six of those seven with us.

00:03:25--> 00:03:29

He said Ali salatu salam, WA Julian

00:03:30--> 00:03:32

Assange kabhi sada petite.

00:03:33--> 00:03:44

And a man who gives a charity, charity, his charitable was a charity for us. But he hides if he conceals, it had gotten

00:03:48--> 00:03:54

to the point that his left hand does not know what his right hand gave what his right hand spent.

00:03:55--> 00:04:39

This is our appointment, and there is no fundraising appeal after this football because maybe some times a person is wondering about the fundraiser. And they deprive themselves of something so valuable out of fear that there could be something behind it. But just to reassure you, regardless of what is wrong with her mindset, there is no fundraising after this. In fact, this issue of a man who gives this is an expression in such secretive fashion that is had had a conscience it wouldn't know is the expression to show you to what extent that the tween of his right hand doesn't even know the closest thing to his right hand doesn't know. So what about his brothers? What about his

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

relatives? What about the people

00:04:42--> 00:04:57

to show you that this is not about even charity. This is about a person going the extra module to be created in hiding their charity to creative in ensuring their sincerity.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

And this is about it.

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

Being in Islam better to hide your charities whenever that's possible, regardless of how tiny that charity may be.

00:05:10--> 00:05:25

Because it isn't wrong to be South Africa as a man who gives a charity, big, small, any charity, but he still hides it, she still hides it, it is better to do that, as a law seller

00:05:26--> 00:06:12

in to produce an apology for the family. If you declare your donations, your charities, this is a good thing. There is benefit in that way into full what to do hunt for around four or five. But if you hide it, and pass it that way, in secretive fashion, so be nice to the poor, this is better for you. This is the rule of Islam. This is the norm, this should be was prevalent, there is an exception to that rule. And now we're working on what he says. And this does not apply to the cat. Because if people were to hide that practice, that pillar will become extinct for people to forget that there's something called seca. And also a second reason why it is that that would be the

00:06:12--> 00:06:54

exception is that because it would stop encouraging people from giving zakat. And the third reason is disclosing your Zika at times in certain circumstances is beneficial because the poor person is waiting for and could become envious towards you could assume wrong of you, if they don't know you've given your seca. And likewise, in the fundraising, it would be good to keep your intentions in check, but disclose your donation to get the reward of encouraging others to donate. But these are all exceptions, they can't replace the rule. Your common practice, your mindset should be Is there any way to hide this without heart. That is the rule inside of Islam.

00:06:56--> 00:07:39

The Muslim does not just hide his charities as well, he would say me like more buses and musulman yet to have said that Who am I to say it the believer he hides his good deeds the same way he would hide this since because he knows he's weak. And if people find out he they like the reaction so much that the next time he doesn't he does it for them and not for Allah doesn't trust themselves with being public about it, he doesn't do so voluntarily. rather he tries to hide it, he would hide the city. That way you would go out of your way you would hate it for someone to discover that time to snack to raise their voice as one of your parents or the way you would try so hard to protect people

00:07:39--> 00:08:21

from knowing protect your reputation from an ugly pasts that involve alcohol or involve Zina or otherwise, to that degree, I'm trying to hide my charity, when can a person get up scale in their intentions and do that when they have only a love as their audience. And this is not an easy thing. This is very, very difficult. Because this is something this is not like the charity itself, giving the charities easy. But doing it only seeking allows response allows observance of laws, audience him being your audience, that is much more difficult. You know a person

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

can spend 1000 5020, whatever it is on a car

00:08:28--> 00:08:48

that can benefit anybody that will not benefit you or not benefit the people, right? It's just a waste a waste of money. To find that kind of car unnecessarily ID when you don't need to pay extra for what I'm saying. You can have a car, you're allowed to have a car, a good car, a car that doesn't break down a car that you're comfortable in, all of that is fine.

00:08:50--> 00:09:30

And then a person shifts and says, Hey, let me stop wasting money. Let me take that money and spend it on the orphans spend it on some relief effort, spend the same amount on a good cause. That is certainly better than spending it unnecessarily on a car. Because even if your intentions are wrong, you're still benefiting somebody, right? But it is much harder to benefit yourself with your charity. Because this is something that happens in hand. And no one can know if your intention is out of place. A person comes and tells you after you stop showing off. You would say you don't know what's in my heart. And you're absolutely right. He doesn't know what's in your heart. She doesn't

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

know what's your intentions. It is very possible that your intentions were good. It is possible they weren't. He can never know. He may see signs you should consider but they cannot know. This is a battle that's difficult and you may get it and then it slips out your intention and you have to fight this fight alone. And if you remember we said v seven their common denominator the theme of the seven they put up with the heat of fighting themselves.

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

So a lot, pardon them from the heat on the day of judgments.

00:10:04--> 00:10:13

And so these are champions that got rid of it all, we got rid of the desire for money. But what was more difficult the desire for recognition.

00:10:17--> 00:10:43

That takes toughness, that takes courage that takes hard work to develop yourself to that level. You could be in a religious circle, but you're still seeking recognition just from a different crowd now, not your friends, your home means your circle from before Islam and before became religious. Now you're seeking the same thing from a different social circle. So in essence, it could be the same. And that's why Edison developed generics and the Muslim.

00:10:46--> 00:10:52

He says this one a lot. So a couple of them I felt a level of luck, john, let me do

00:10:53--> 00:11:25

the earth began to move and shift and shake for our savage Japan. And so what caused it to settle he weighed it down with the mountains for the agenda. It meant that he could cheat that Japan and so the angels were amazed at how tough the mountains are. For auto yellow banana had a follow up to Hong Kong. I sent them in and they said, Oh our Lord, did you create any creation tougher than the mountains? caught an Arab? And he said, Yes, I am.

00:11:28--> 00:11:35

I said why did you create anything tougher than I thought and now I'm a no yes, Fire Fire melts out here.

00:11:36--> 00:11:37

called who will help

00:11:39--> 00:11:49

me them now. Did you create anything tougher than fire? Todd Anam. And Matt. He said yes, Water Water puts out fire. He said watch it onto a helicopter Falcon. I said.

00:11:51--> 00:12:03

Have you created anything that is tougher than watered down and read the wind? The wind carries the clouds filled with water. It manages the water. It controls the waves it pushes them back or brings them forward

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

onto a helicopter Hello, can I shed them in every Have you created anything tougher than the winds? Call

00:12:13--> 00:12:18

them either the puppy salsa party VME. And he

00:12:20--> 00:12:30

he said yes, the son of Adam, when he gets himself to give in charity with his right and hides it from this life. It takes toughness is not easy.

00:12:31--> 00:12:31


00:12:34--> 00:12:39

he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah Jones even published two letters of the

00:12:40--> 00:12:47

very famous man from those before you said I am going to give a charity today. And so he went out

00:12:48--> 00:12:57

to give a charity tonight he waited for the night because he wants to hide it. He doesn't want anything from anyone. He wants to be with a lovely feature set for us in the hall. In

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

New Jersey,

00:13:02--> 00:13:39

we are feeding you for the face of God. We want to see God's face. That's our sole ambition. That's the only thing we're looking for. We do not wish from you just repayment nothing from your pocket. What I should cool nor anything, nothing from your tongue either. By the way a believer says with his heart, you don't say that to people. That's an insult. Tell them I don't want anything from you and you give them charity. Some people do that. That's completely misunderstanding what the is about this ad is you're saying this with your heart as you're doing. And so this man wanted to be that person. I don't want thanks. I don't want to repayment. I don't want you to repay the favor. It's

00:13:39--> 00:14:06

not because I owe you a favor. I want it to be purely for Allah. And so he gave charity to the first person he found for us. What do we have for Luna to suit the Elena gala Dahlia in the morning, hears rumors going around. Some fool gave charity last night to a prostitute. A woman's going around making money. He's the first woman you wanted to give it a run. You don't want anyone to see. So he gave money to a woman

00:14:07--> 00:14:21

that accepts money for any decent service. So he became the talk of the town. He gave her money didn't get anything from her say what a fool. So called him to be less valuable. He said hungry left for a prostitute.

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

And then he said

00:14:27--> 00:14:29

I'm still going to give a charity today.

00:14:31--> 00:14:59

And so he went out the next night put it in the first hand he found in the morning but people are saying it was such a late letter. I will read it on Saturday. They said last night someone gave charity to a thief someone's going on stealing people's money this man gave the money for free. It's as if a lie cell agenda was destiny. His missteps his misplacement of the sudden up for reason for wisdom. He was engineering his mistakes

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

for his own good.

00:15:02--> 00:15:05

And so he said hungry, hungry.

00:15:06--> 00:15:45

I'm still I wants to prove to Allah I want to please you, you know this was years ago, that would have been enough. If you tried your best to put it in someone's hands who appears to be and then you find out later they were not qualified. You don't have to repeat your cap because I've done your due diligence, that's it. But he wanted to do more. He wanted to show a lot of fruitful he was in pursuing his pleasure in seeking his face. And so he wanted the third light and he found the people saying in the morning to suit them later, and Barry had to either money, someone gave charity, less money to someone who's richer than him. Some guys walk in Richard and the guy giving the money and

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

he gives him this.

00:15:47--> 00:15:50

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said about this.

00:15:52--> 00:16:35

Perhaps the rich person will begin to be charitable. And perhaps the thief will stop stealing, you'll feel guilty, or we'll have enough money because sometimes thieves feel like they have no choice, right? And perhaps the prostitute will defend. And so number one from his sincerity, he tried to hide his deeds, and among me that people find them out, find out about them, he didn't seek it out gave it to him anyway. And how many people spend money and time and energy to be recognized and what causes them to be forgotten? This is the blessing the mark of being truthful with a lot in your transactions with a lot of numbers Anyone else? Think of how much people work to be famous and

00:16:35--> 00:17:15

they are forgotten? And how the prophets of Allah will say a word in the desert for Allah and Allah will immortalize that word that happens Recycling's. And so Allah disclosed his charities. Number two on the law caused him to help these people's Dean though he only tried to he wanted to feed somebody, a lot could have made him responsible for them repenting them being encouraged to do good. And a love made his story happy that we see for 1400 years and counting on the number tomorrow, and inspiration for others, because of him being truthful with Allah in his charity, for trying to hide it.

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

This it could be a moment that you have this in your life, your work forward your entire life, and Allah gives it to you once and it could be worthy within your entire lifetime.

00:17:29--> 00:17:36

It could save you from everything else, and the profits of a lot more than your own that told us that Muslim

00:17:38--> 00:17:47

who said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in order to then feel unpopular, there used to be a man from the previous nations as well. At taboo.

00:17:50--> 00:17:52

The angel came to pull his soul

00:17:54--> 00:17:55

for free.

00:17:57--> 00:18:03

So it was said to him, did you do any good in your life? On an island? I don't know of any good actor? I can't think of anything.

00:18:05--> 00:18:06

Fertitta who

00:18:07--> 00:18:12

just check, did you do anything at all for Ireland

00:18:13--> 00:18:14


00:18:15--> 00:18:17

the queen to value lesufi dunia?

00:18:20--> 00:18:22

What will jazz eat him for?

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

What are we

00:18:27--> 00:18:36

the only thing I can think of this is the time is what he thinks is not much. I used to do business with people in this world. I was a businessman.

00:18:37--> 00:18:39

And I used to can't deal with them.

00:18:41--> 00:18:51

And I used to give extra time to even the people that had money. It's okay pay me later. And I used to reduce the amount to the people that didn't have money.

00:18:53--> 00:19:06

can look the person who has money he's not necessarily thought of as a recipient of charity. But he went out of his way to try to be creative in hiding those charities and being good with people.

00:19:07--> 00:19:21

And whoever tries that will do it. And you've understood that understood the message of is heavy. But it is not easy. And that's why one of the setup one of the early Muslims he said it last who said it ninjetta

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

as well. So have

00:19:25--> 00:19:43

you been sincere 110% sincere 99% for a lot 100% sincere in that salvation for eternity. A moment of that a drop of it. But this moment is rare. It must be pursued a hold of all we have our stuff

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


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


00:20:01--> 00:20:02


00:20:05--> 00:20:42

We praise Allah for making the best of this oma his earliest generations. Because that way the oma started on the right foot, and left us an entire tour off an entire legacy, a heritage of sincere donors, sincere charitable people, sincere referee, who understood the theme best and practice to do in a finest way. And then we look back and say which one of these Can I imitate? And I get stuffed in any of these categories, if not one than the other. And so in this issue of hiding the charities, one of the early Muslims, what he would do is he would go

00:20:43--> 00:21:22

to work in the morning, and when he would make his money, a new customer would come, he would send him to his neighbor and say, no buy from him. That's, that's a charity, you gave up money that was coming your way wasn't another one of them would go to the poor people that sell things on the streets. And he would give them more than the price they're asking for. So not everyone looks at it, like it's a sale. But to him, it's a charity, a third one with a customer himself not to go out, except that he would get carried gifts with him, even if it's a loaf of bread, even if it's an onion, and he would hide it in his sleep and give it to people.

00:21:23--> 00:21:40

And among them are those that would pay off the debts of others by going to the creditors and giving him the money. But But first thing would make them swear that they would not tell the person the person in debt to pay off their debts. This was important about many of them.

00:21:41--> 00:21:45

Love one, one of his students. And one of the tricks perhaps it was enough that

00:21:46--> 00:22:27

he was arrested for a debt that he had, he borrowed some money so he can seek knowledge, things went downhill, he was arrested because he couldn't repay the money. And so he went to the man that was owed the money. And he said to him, so long as I believe you don't tell us all about what I'm about to do. Agreed or No. He said, he said, Here's your money. And he left town. And about two weeks later, his student catches up with him and tells him what have you been? I haven't seen you. He's just you don't know who I was arrested and I was out and someone paid my debt. I don't even know who it is. And I was finally able to catch up with you. He says to find in the price of afford. And he

00:22:27--> 00:22:32

only found out after his teacher died. His teacher was the one that covered that bill.

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

And then there's Adi immunostaining,

00:22:38--> 00:22:48

who was titled known as single guy redeem, which is basically the trophy of the worshipers. Hardly anyone. This is the great grandson of the prophets on the love audio Center. This is the grandson of

00:22:51--> 00:22:52

him. I need him to perceive

00:22:54--> 00:22:56

humanity he used to say about him.

00:22:57--> 00:23:27

He used to carry bushels bad sacks of bread on his back at like and giving charity to people to the poor. And he would say to the few that discovered this. He's campaigning in a sort of a civic truth the Obama rock DSL agenda, giving charity in secret. This extinguishes the anger of the LORD Tsukamoto out of the mighty and majestic and shake up international buses Canada de Saini, who

00:23:29--> 00:23:52

used to be accused of being cheap. No one ever saw them giving charity and this is the grandson of it. This is the great grandson of the profits of above audio Center, the most generous people ever. They used to accuse him of being cheap, being stingy until he died. They discovered that there was 100 houses in Medina that he was spending on.

00:23:55--> 00:23:56

And Mohammed

00:23:57--> 00:24:00

says Canada as soon as the Medina tr issue

00:24:02--> 00:24:12

they were so many homes in Medina that used to live not knowing where their livelihood came from not knowing who spent on them until I leave the casino

00:24:13--> 00:24:26

until he died and then when he died, they realize that this is the person that was bringing us things that right and finally talking about losses lambda mentality that are seen from Lou john

00:24:31--> 00:24:51

when he finally died and they were washing his body they saw black marks like calluses in his back and so they said Where did where's this from? What is this like? Was he ever whipped What happened here? So be one of the few that knew about it that discovered it before he died. He said to them, can I ask you to but the tip Leyland

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

Medina. This man used to carry these heavy sacks on his back like giving it out to the floor.

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

in Medina, every single minute left marks in his back, they went out of their way to hide things. And let me conclude these last three minutes in the whole by saying that one of the greatest, most overlooked ways to hide your charity, which is a sign that you're actually truthful with Allah is to do it in your home.

00:25:22--> 00:25:23

And now, even with money,

00:25:25--> 00:25:32

give up your comfort. Give up your psychological reserve, give up your peace of mind.

00:25:34--> 00:26:17

Give up some of your sleep time, give up some of your stress, ignore the timing. When a husband comes home, and he's just been fired, or a husband comes home, he's had a horrible day his car has broken down whatever it is hiding that from your family, and reassuring them and giving them smiles even when you cannot. It is very difficult for me and for you. I know this. But this is a sign of someone who's truthful. This is a charity I've given up my my right to comfort. This is your right, you've given up your right to comfort, you've proven your faith, you've proven your manliness that everybody gets served before me. And likewise, the woman when her husband comes home, to make sure

00:26:17--> 00:26:33

this house is the place of Sakina. Please have warm and tranquility for us with this and hide the fact that the children have been driving their crazy old days. This is a sign of faith. This is a sign of someone sincere and trying to please a lot of selgin. And there's no better example than the prophet SAW.

00:26:35--> 00:26:51

He was the busiest man on earth, who had more responsibilities than anyone who carried more pain inside him than anyone he lived with so much more concern than we can ever have. And I'd love to have it says we never saw him except that he was smiling. But he had the toughest life.

00:26:52--> 00:27:15

He would not just smile, he would make sure other people smile, because he was not waiting for someone to appreciate that he was going through our time that then he was not waiting for that he was grateful that Allah gave him the ability to give him the chance to save himself. As he said to us, Alex auto Sarah, magnificent, new Mini Cooper, semi grubby, dounia, Neff, massamba.

00:27:17--> 00:27:21

Whomever relieves the distress of a believer in this world

00:27:22--> 00:28:01

of love will really believe that what a great deal. That's an excellent view what an offer a level relief for you one of the stresses of the day of judgments when you're upset, and you don't want to when you have some and you remember, that's not their fault. I'm not going to make people suffer with me because I'm suffering. I'm going to spend $1 50 or $2 or $3. And I'm going to go make my wife happy. And by her rules, the kids have drove driven me nuts, I'm still not going to ask my husband to order food. I'm not going to mention it to him the first thing at the door, I'm going to swallow that bullet, even if no one appreciates, because I know my lord appreciates He is worthy

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

worthy enough of an audience. We have laws that help us keep our laws our audience. We are the makers of those early generations of Islam who hide their charities and know that a lot a lot is enough to see us and allies enough to appreciate us and our allies enough to compensate us and provide us with these even if they are so small but consistent and provide us with these that are sincere and hidden in the case that everything else fails love them I mean above

00:28:34--> 00:28:35
