was an AVI My

00:04:45--> 00:04:46

dear brothers and sisters.

00:04:49--> 00:04:52

the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

told us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the IV who meet was the most generous of all people.

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

No one was as generous as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:05:06--> 00:05:08

But his generosity level,

00:05:10--> 00:05:17

hit its highest and went above and beyond, specifically in the month of Ramadan.

00:05:19--> 00:05:27

Now I would like to reflect upon that, what is it about the month of Ramadan that inspires us to give

00:05:28--> 00:05:38

in addition to the fact that our own role model, our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our Imam, our teacher,

00:05:40--> 00:05:41

our guide,

00:05:42--> 00:06:00

the person that we hope that Allah subhanho wa Taala will allow us to receive his shefa intercession from him salallahu alayhi wa sallam, the person that we beg Allah subhanho wa Taala to allow us to be in his company on the day of judgment

00:06:01--> 00:06:16

and to be in his presence. In general fear dose, the person that we beg a loss of handle with Allah to allow us to drink out of his hand sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, from his blood fountain on the Day of Judgment.

00:06:17--> 00:06:22

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the master the abbey who owe me

00:06:23--> 00:06:54

the one who taught us everything good sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in addition to the fact that we were inspired by his example. What is it about the month of Ramadan? The Sahaba said that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to be the most generous of people what kind of as you admire Ramadan, but it's specifically in the month of Ramadan. He was the most generous sallallahu alayhi wasallam not the most generous of people. He was the most generous of people at all times. But in the month of Ramadan, he even

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went above

00:06:59--> 00:07:02

and outdone himself sal Allahu Allah who isn't.

00:07:03--> 00:07:06

Right, and it just keeps getting better and better.

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

Summer and in one example, one analogy that they used was Gary Hill myrcella. He was like a blowing wind, a wind that brings everything and scatters everything everywhere, throwing clay rod,

00:07:22--> 00:07:26

goodness everywhere left and rights on the law he was selling.

00:07:27--> 00:07:40

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was challenged sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once by someone or someone objected to him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam responded

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

with passion.

00:07:44--> 00:07:56

And he said you should let you should you should leave me alone. There is nothing that I have except that I will share and give you will not find me to be cheap. I will not be stingy.

00:07:57--> 00:08:10

Not me. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in another in another On another occasion. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about giving left and right and he did with his hand this and this Batalla de cada waka

00:08:12--> 00:08:30

This is the level of generosity. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him that if I had mountains, or if I have heard or heard was mountains, out of spent it all not kept anything. One time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rushed out of the masjid after a Salah. panicking.

00:08:32--> 00:08:34

He went and then he came back.

00:08:35--> 00:08:42

And so have a wondering so when he saw that expression on their faces, he said, I remember that I had something that I needed to give away.

00:08:45--> 00:08:51

Right, some silver that was left around, and I wanted to, to give it away.

00:08:53--> 00:09:14

did not go to bed with extra Salalah alayhi wa sallam, because he knew that someone somewhere needed it. So he shared everything. So Lola holidays, but specifically in the month of Ramadan. So I wonder, what is it in the month of Ramadan that inspires us, in addition to the fact that the month of Ramadan is the month of inspiration.

00:09:15--> 00:09:20

It's a month where we experience a heightened level of spirituality.

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

In the month of Ramadan,

00:09:25--> 00:09:33

we feel more inspired to do things and perhaps being in a state of fasting is one of them.

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

When we feel

00:09:36--> 00:09:57

how those who have less, or those who don't have anything, when we get a taste of what it's like not to have access to food or drink, to be deprived. We do this voluntarily. We stop ourselves from eating and drinking on our own. We get the feeling

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

and

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

We control ourselves, knowing that at the end of the day, be even Allahu taala. By the grace of Allah Azza. wa jal, we're going to have plenty. And we were going to have a variety of things.

00:10:12--> 00:10:17

As a matter of fact, many people spend their entire day thinking about the menu. What are we going to have tonight?

00:10:20--> 00:10:34

But at the same time there is there is that hope that, you know, we will be inspired. And we will say to ourselves, how about those people who don't have what we have? How about those people who feel this way every single day?

00:10:36--> 00:10:46

How about those people who don't have options, they don't have a menu at the end of the day. They don't have access, they don't know what they're going to be having for dinner, or for breakfast.

00:10:47--> 00:10:59

So this is perhaps one of the aspects why we are inspired in the month of Ramadan to give and that is why the month of Ramadan, one of the names

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

of the month of Ramadan, according to some of the companions of the Prophet in our early scholars is Sharon masa.

00:11:08--> 00:11:13

The month of consoling or constellation when we

00:11:14--> 00:11:29

try to reach out and make someone feel better comfort someone provide aid or help or comfort for someone cheer up someone that has suffered a loss or some kind of misfortune.

00:11:30--> 00:11:46

This is the month of Ramadan. So for those of us sometimes who say well the month of Ramadan, Mashallah did everything, but they're missing out on this part. You're not going to get the complete benefit of the month of Ramadan until you outdo yourself in the month of Ramadan.

00:11:47--> 00:12:29

Until you break a record in the month of Ramadan when it comes to giving. Fasting in and of itself is an act of love Allah Subhana Allah loves this. And he told us to fast we love a loss of Hannah with Allah back and that's why we obey the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we obey Allah subhanho wa Taala and we fast in the month of Ramadan, as a gesture of love and gratitude for the loss of Hannah what to Allah, expressing our humility before Allah azza wa jal and if we truly love Allah subhanho wa Taala you know what they say? There is no love without giving. So we give for peace, I believe that we get for a lot of soldiers left and right, whenever we have an opportunity.

00:12:30--> 00:12:35

So this is one reason, another reason perhaps, and maybe this could be

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

To me, this is just

00:12:39--> 00:12:46

you know, the most powerful of all reasons in the month of Ramadan, we are finally

00:12:48--> 00:12:55

we finally get exposed to the entire program being recited and even if we don't fully understand it, the Quran

00:12:56--> 00:13:04

is there's this mysterious impact of the Quran has when people when they listen to it, even if they don't fully understand it.

00:13:06--> 00:13:08

And what does that tell us

00:13:09--> 00:13:12

about this particular topic, giving

00:13:14--> 00:13:15

from the beginning of the most half,

00:13:17--> 00:13:33

until the last part of the Quran. The Quran is full of reminders, encouragement, commandments, about giving from the very first night from the page to after Al Fatiha page one

00:13:34--> 00:13:42

Alif Lam Meem Valley Kalki tabula rasa de la mattina guidance for those who have Taqwa

00:13:44--> 00:13:53

and Allah Subhana Allah describes these people, what kind of people are they? Oh Allah. What does Allah Subhana Allah say, answer me? What does Allah say who the Latino

00:13:54--> 00:13:59

and Latina you may know web up masala merasakan.

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

The third item is that they spend from that which we provide for the

00:14:07--> 00:14:12

page one comes in tells us when we merasakan a homeopathic cone.

00:14:15--> 00:14:19

You move forward in the Quran, one page after another.

00:14:20--> 00:14:27

Allah Subhana Allah reminds us over and over again and remember, this Qur'an was sent to a messenger

00:14:28--> 00:14:37

who delivered it to a community of people, companions, who are willing to sacrifice everything visibility,

00:14:38--> 00:14:47

who went above and beyond, you know, because sometimes, and let me just say this, you see people there may not be nothing, anything new in today's photo.

00:14:48--> 00:14:51

Right? Because people need

00:14:52--> 00:14:56

to be reminded more often than they need to be instructed.

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

It's not about new information, something

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

entertaining something new that I haven't heard before.

00:15:03--> 00:15:10

It's about reminding me of what I need to remember what I already know. But I lose touch with.

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

I forget,

00:15:13--> 00:15:14

I become distracted.

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

This is what this is all about. This is what Ramadan is all about.

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

We fast every year.

00:15:23--> 00:15:28

We need the constant reminder. Why the Quran every day, we need the reminder.

00:15:29--> 00:15:38

So people need to be reminded the Sahaba who are willing because sometimes people again come and they say, why do you need to always you know, tell us about this topic? Well, just because

00:15:41--> 00:15:48

we're here in the message. Well, yeah, if one if the message is empty, then I need to go out to people and tell them about salah and coming to the machine.

00:15:50--> 00:15:55

If people stop going to Hajj, we need to remind people of hedge, hedge hedge jejomar hedge

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

if we don't make HUD who is going to make HUD

00:15:59--> 00:16:07

right. The vast majority of Muslims don't get to make Hajj they die without making Hajj. Those of us who have the means are so fortunate.

00:16:09--> 00:16:14

We are very fortunate there are people who don't experience Hajj their dream is to make Hutch.

00:16:16--> 00:16:28

Right? So if people stopped making how'd you have to remind them of hedge if people stopped giving Zakat, you have to remind them of zakat. If people stopped fasting, you need to remind them of fasting but 80% of the Muslim community fast How many?

00:16:29--> 00:16:40

Give there is a cat. How many giffy sebelah are expired. This is a topic that is very sensitive. And that's why people need to be reminded.

00:16:41--> 00:16:51

And because Allah subhanaw taala reminded us in the Quran and because of loss of Hallo to Allah says the reminder works for the believers for that cared for in the cloth.

00:16:53--> 00:17:02

Only the believers will benefit from the people of taqwa they are moved, when they are reminded that like yes, I haven't done this for a while. I haven't been given to this cause for a while.

00:17:05--> 00:17:08

Right, begging you to give.

00:17:10--> 00:17:31

And I know that on the long run, people are going to be grateful. If not in this life, you hope that they will be able to appreciate it in this life, but if it's not in this life, so Okay, if you're annoyed by me, that's fine. So I hope that on the Day of Judgment, you're going to thank me or at least ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive me, for inspiring you.

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

So this is

00:17:35--> 00:18:14

this is the topic that we're dealing with. It's a topic that that, you know, makes a difference in the individuals life before those who are the recipients of that individuals of financial support. So Allah Subhana Allah reminds us and reminds us Sahaba who were willing, if the Sahaba the early Muslims had to be reminded over and over again in the Quran, by Allah and by the prophets of Allah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had fundraisers By the way, just for those who would say, why are we having so many fundraisers? Why do we we have a lot of causes of having done that we have a need? That the prophets Allah, Allah said, Yes, and then the masjid sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he stood

00:18:14--> 00:18:20

up. So people who would do such and such, but he had the authority sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to promise people Jenna,

00:18:22--> 00:18:58

we don't have that. Right? What we can say is believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his promise and the promise of Allah and Allah will give you based on the or near the prophet SAW Selim stood in the masjid and called upon this habit of Allah, Allah and Allah as we did in the end, over and over again in more than 50 something places in the poor and this is other than the verses that talk about the reward and loss of panels that are the same when we apply homeopathy upon Allah subhanaw taala describing in Surah, Allah and Milan, by the way, sort of Bukhara, the first three, just just full of ayat that talk about spending feasibility,

00:18:59--> 00:19:18

towards the end of sorts of Bukhara to two and a half, three pages, three pages that talk about spending, and if you feel like is a loss of health Allah, why is it repeated under the name of your poonawalla home, build a new one, the hairy serrania those who give out of their wealth,

00:19:20--> 00:19:24

they ignite secretly and openly publicly. The

00:19:26--> 00:20:00

reward is with their Lord, when I hope when I lay him and there will be no fear on them. fear comes from shavonne Allah subhanaw taala says Be wise giving by the way makes you a wise person gives you wisdom hikma, which is what we're seeking, which is what this institution is all about. Achieving and attaining hikma giving is one of the means to achieve to to attain hekman so Allah subhanho wa Taala says that she upon me to come on focus upon who's who uses scare tactics, but Allah Subhana Allah, you need to come to determine who will follow

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

The loss of Hannah with Allah gives you more loss of Hannah with Allah forgives you. This is a chance this is an opportunity for you, you're being gifted with an opportunity. Right? So Allah Subhana Allah to Allah in the middle of these ads over and over again what I hope there will be no fear on them. No fear in this dunya no fear at the time of their death, no fear of poverty. One law he because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said manaka Senado abdomen sada

00:20:30--> 00:20:31

It all depends on your near.

00:20:33--> 00:20:54

It all depends on the UN. I don't know of anyone who used to give, you know, someone tells me, you know, why are you always passionate about this because I heard a lot of stories I witnessed, I experienced a lot of stories, a lot of stories. Throughout my history, I experienced, I've seen people who came in and said, I pledged my first earning the last panel with Allah and I said, Oh Allah, don't make me

00:20:56--> 00:21:13

ever, you know, need, you know, anyone's help. And ever since my first earning the entire thing, the entire paycheck, or the entire profit that I made out of that business, just gave it away, the likes of Hamilton, and ever since it has been decades, Allah Subhana Allah did not let me go.

00:21:16--> 00:21:16

This is

00:21:17--> 00:21:26

right. These stories will law he will law he will lie. I know of people whom Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has blessed

00:21:27--> 00:21:37

and people wonder in a one shot what this brother every business takes off any concept, any idea that he takes Mashallah. And this person was giving was giving an unlike,

00:21:39--> 00:21:46

and I know of individuals that used to do this, and at some point, they're like, I just got tired, I'm approached by everybody, I got tired, and they stopped.

00:21:48--> 00:21:53

What law he, I've seen people lose everything, everything

00:21:54--> 00:21:59

and be at the other end, at the receiving end, after they used to be

00:22:00--> 00:22:01

at the giving end.

00:22:03--> 00:22:27

Because they, they, they, they Misaki they got distracted, and they forgot that to begin with, that the secret of the blessings, you know, was not their talent. And the reason they were being blessed, like no other. Were lucky like no other. Same businesses are lucky the same business by relatives and does not do as well.

00:22:30--> 00:22:40

They they left they left the factory. Now. So because of this, I'm inspired. But again, the modern form of art comes that reminds me of this concept over and over again.

00:22:41--> 00:22:44

It reminds me of this over and over again.

00:22:46--> 00:22:58

Allah subhanaw taala saying give right until Kumi magic Allah como circle Athena Fie, Allah Subhana Allah tells us those who give out of wealth that they love that that has been

00:22:59--> 00:23:06

that they have emotional attachment to what I tell my other hubby sorted Bukhara so to Bukhara again, if

00:23:07--> 00:23:31

they asked you what they should spend. What matters to me in hiring valid, valid anyone appropriate Allah subhanaw taala and at the end of that verse will matter if I'm in a hurry, but what matters I don't mean hiring in the Mojave Valley, whatever good you do Allah knows. Right? Again assorted baccara Allah Subhana Allah talks about out of the hustle mentality, Oprah de la escena who would give a loss of who will lend Allah azzawajal

00:23:32--> 00:23:48

right. These are different ways that Allah subhanaw taala appeals to us. And then Allah subhanaw taala beginning from verse 261, methodology and Puna Amala home all the way until verse 280, Allah subhanaw taala talks about giving

00:23:50--> 00:23:54

and sort of Allah Emraan giving comes up again, Lenten, no

00:23:55--> 00:24:13

matter how hipbone, you know, this righteousness that you and I are competing and working so hard to attain by the end of the month. We're hoping every night we're trying to achieve better virtue. Allah subhanaw taala says you will not reach that level of habitat and fecal matter hipbone until you get from that which you love.

00:24:14--> 00:24:27

I will tell her, they love her and when he heard this, he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, everybody in Medina knew what our heart was. And he said messenger of Allah, Allah says this, that we have to give from what we love. He said yes.

00:24:29--> 00:24:32

And he said then by our heart is my most precious property.

00:24:33--> 00:24:35

I this is an endowment,

00:24:36--> 00:24:39

an endowment, you know what better had

00:24:40--> 00:24:48

it had more than 700 palm trees, the most precious, one of the most precious properties in Medina, he gave it all up while the Aloha

00:24:50--> 00:24:55

because he wanted and so on and so forth, one after another.

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

So perhaps when we are exposed to these verses, we

00:25:00--> 00:25:17

feel more inspired to give. So whenever we have an opportunity we also feel more inspired to remind one another of giving I asked a lot as well just to make you and I have those who listen and follow the rest of where they listened to Apollo Hello cola saphira Laurie welcome. First of all we have fella come in the hall who Allah for him

00:25:37--> 00:25:42

Alhamdulillah Rockefeller salatu salam ala Abadi Latina Safa that

00:25:44--> 00:25:51

our brothers and sisters in Muslim community in Sydney, Australia.

00:25:52--> 00:25:57

Two three days ago, two days ago actually, they buried

00:25:58--> 00:25:59

a dear member of that community

00:26:01--> 00:26:06

whose work and story went beyond that continent

00:26:08--> 00:26:11

and became a global

00:26:13--> 00:26:17

an international inspiration for the Muslim community everywhere.

00:26:19--> 00:26:30

According to one of our leading one of our leaders, national leaders, I personally haven't been following but I've been getting a lot of videos.

00:26:33--> 00:26:38

He hasn't seen anyone talked about as much as this young man may have lost to Allah have mercy on him.

00:26:41--> 00:26:50

His name is Allie. Allie Bennett, successful businessman, young businessman. Loss of health Allah blessed him

00:26:51--> 00:27:00

with hundreds of 1000s and millions Mashallah he was a millionaire. And then three years ago he was diagnosed with cancer and he was told that he has up to seven months.

00:27:02--> 00:27:14

So he turned his life around sold everything all the Ferrari's all the luxury cars, everything. And he started a nonprofit organization to make a difference in the lives of as many people as he can before medical mode comes down.

00:27:15--> 00:27:32

Allah subhanaw taala extended his life perhaps maybe by the virtue gave him three more years, enough time to perform Umrah and Hajj and go and do as much as he can before he was debilitated he couldn't move anymore. But it's still he was making videos and encouraging people to go and reach out to people.

00:27:34--> 00:27:36

inspired so many of us

00:27:37--> 00:27:49

inspired so many scholars and international figures just to his his passion and his dedication. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah have mercy on him. His last video two weeks ago in the month of Ramadan was congratulating the Muslim community with a month of Ramadan

00:27:51--> 00:28:20

and saying please don't forget to help and make a difference in the lives of reminding people of giving and how blessed we are. Right two weeks ago, that was his the last video that he did. May Allah Subhana Allah have mercy on him and Allah Subhana Allah chose that he dies in the month of Ramadan. After two weeks within the month of Ramadan, he passed away, Rahim Allah, perhaps according to some his janazah was the largest janazah the City of Sydney witnessed hands down the largest genizah.

00:28:21--> 00:28:41

May Allah Subhana Allah have mercy on him, it was giving feasts of vilella making a difference in the lives of others. That earned him that spot, not his wealth, or his beauty or his loss of habitat. And that's what people then as soon as he passed away a video services,

00:28:43--> 00:28:52

a video that he made before he died, but it was a message that to be published after his death. And he begins that with something that just shook me to my core.

00:28:54--> 00:28:59

He begins by saying, as you all know, Alhamdulillah I have passed away.

00:29:02--> 00:29:05

And I want to remind you of the following.

00:29:07--> 00:29:10

So it was sounded like a message from

00:29:11--> 00:29:15

from Africa from someone that passed away. He had recorded before he passed away.

00:29:18--> 00:29:22

And it's captured and he what he was saying is do something for yourself. Don't wait.

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

You know, not everyone gets a warning or gets a chance that everyone you know is told you know, you only have this, this this this much time left. People go suddenly, right. So we should in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you know, give, give one to so here when you're well, and you're healthy, and you're you're you're well off, and you're in terms of prosperity, give as much as you can, don't wait until it reaches your throat and then you say Oh give so so and so this much and give so and so this much. Do it now or don't wait for somebody to do it on your behalf.

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

after your death do it now. So today inshallah Tada, you and I will be provided with a golden opportunity inshallah so just to make a difference, you know, I only come to something that I myself would support and I'm passionate about, and there is something this beautiful organization is doing that, you know, makes me envy them makes me jealous in a good way. Right? So, and and hamdulillah you've been blessed to be present today to join us in sha Allah to Allah for this effort. So if you can save for a few minutes inshallah tada after the Salah, in the last video, I would like to invite you and myself to make a difference in supporting this particular program that the Institute of

00:30:42--> 00:30:53

knowledge has championed in our area, something that is very unique, something that other communities envious for, by the way, we don't realize how blessed we are.

00:30:54--> 00:30:56

We don't realize how blessed we are. Right?

00:30:57--> 00:31:22

You know, I don't know of any other community that has the number of young scholars, charismatic, younger scholars, well spoken, you know, well qualified, like, this area, Southern California, and I don't know of any organization that was able to bring as many of them as any organization can afford, like this institution. This is something very unique people envious for

00:31:23--> 00:31:33

this number of people of scholars, you can't run into except at conferences and conventions, national conventions and conferences. And they are available here.

00:31:34--> 00:31:59

You can you can talk to them. You can ask them, you can you can question them, you can challenge them, you can invite them you can take them out for coffee, you can share your own personal story, or your own personal struggle with this is something unique This is not easily done well lie if it was not because of the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala and some level of dedication and sincerity this cannot be achieved.

00:32:01--> 00:32:10

It's unheard of. So we should be grateful and we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep this NEMA in our myths and not take it away.

00:32:13--> 00:32:55

May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless our community. May Allah Subhana Allah bless the soul of our loved ones and relatives who pass away and we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give Shiva to give and cure those who are suffering of any ailment or any pain We ask Allah Subhana Allah to alleviate their pain and their suffering and to reward them. And may Allah Subhana Allah allow you and I to finish the month of Ramadan and the best of of spirit. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to accept our deeds and forgive our sins, and to grant us emancipation from hellfire. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us the strength and the inspiration that we need to continue throughout the month. And especially in

00:32:55--> 00:33:33

the last 10 nights we ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to be amongst those who receive who are accepted who received baboon on the only little budget We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to keep us motivated and to bless our families and our communities and our institutions, and protect and preserve and guide our leadership or bernetta Ballymena in the country Semyon Allium to Ballina in the country to Weber Rahim la manana lokomotiva telematic was in a monophyletic was ceilometer michelis wallonie mettam equilibar well pozible Jana one Naja tamina na Eva de la Ilaha model will I do it so anyway eater

00:42:07--> 00:42:27

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. I'm here today for a specific reason. Of course, in addition to you know, I usually don't leave not usually I never leave my messenger Ramadan, I either leave the entire month of Ramadan, or I don't leave any days. But this is a great cause that I was invited to actually, given the opportunity to speak to you about

00:42:28--> 00:42:28

Islamic

00:42:31--> 00:42:48

Institute of knowledge, I, okay. has a very unique program, multiple programs, Mashallah that you have here. And I've taken upon, all of which are meant to satisfy a very desperate need that we have. And we're seeing the fruits of it now.

00:42:49--> 00:43:11

Two days ago, I was talking to an uncle him I mentioned, he said, I have been here for 40 years, 40 years ago, we didn't have Pura and her fall to the salon. Where do you think all these people came from? so that we don't have to invite anyone from overseas and pay a lot of money for them and come local cron who fought who will take pride who will who will be who will be humbled by the opportunity to lead in the Salah.

00:43:12--> 00:43:50

If this if if we didn't have some visionaries and people dedicated to this cause people who came and said I need to make a sacrifice and dedicate my life for this to secure this need for my actual, this would have not been possible. So one of these unique programs that I okay, has here is the seminary program that is producing scholars allameh and alamat young men and women, right, because we need to we can't bring people from overseas, we need to produce an amount of scholars here, people who are not only qualified to leave a lot, but they know they know that I can they can they can answer people's questions, they can give people proper guidance, and,

00:43:51--> 00:44:34

and naziha and advice. So but you know, none, none of these programs come at you know, there are always expenses and there is always deficit with these kind of programs. So today we're here I'm inviting you to help me Charlotte Allah help Ioh K, cover this deficit. Right? I don't think 40 K is too much. Right? Really, I think it's, it's doable. We can do it. Right. We can invite someone else to do it. This is a great cause. Abdullah normobaric greatest scholar and he was very wealthy. He used to give 10,000 dinar to other scholars, scholars like Sophia and even Arianna and Sophia. And these scholars, he will tell them this is your salary for the whole year. So you don't have to go to

00:44:34--> 00:44:49

the government. You don't have to go to the valley to the to the ruler. You don't though it was an Islamic ruler. He said no. I want you to be there. Just sit in the masjid and dedicate your life to teach people and this used to be their salary used to come from Abdullah robotic all the way

00:44:50--> 00:44:50

right.

00:44:52--> 00:45:00

So we're here today inshallah to Allah to take care of this, right. So what I need is 40 means 40 people what you know what

00:45:00--> 00:45:36

1000 each and I think we can do it or we can have someone maybe give 5000 right? So that that we can reach our goal quickly. So who would like to be the first person in sha Allah to Allah to give her this good man lots of Hamlet Allah bless you. Can you just let me know what the amount is? You know, you can do this too Okay, one one, okay. hamdulillah we have 2000 We are 38,000 to go inshallah, to Allah Allahu Allah May Allah subhanaw taala Bless you, sisters you can join us in sha Allah to Allah, Masha Allah is that to 1000 okay to Kabir we have for Masha Allah. May Allah Subhana Allah accept from you And may Allah Subhana Allah blissey Subhana Allah one of the most amazing how do we

00:45:36--> 00:46:13

know that one of the most generous companions of the Prophet was was all the companions of the Prophet said the more generous in their own way. But the story of a worker I've been reflecting upon for the past, you know, few days it's just fascinating. A man that has spent everything that he had Rasulullah sallallahu once said this, you might want to hear this idea before you leave the province that sort of segment So Jamie feasibility law whoever gives two pairs feasibility, the scholar said two pairs means maybe two of the same thing, two camels to two pieces of land two palm trees to two pairs or some that some said twice, whoever gives twice for the same cause. Right on the Day of

00:46:13--> 00:46:29

Judgment, he will be called he will come to Jenna. And then he will get or she will get to pick the gate. Their favorite gate to enter into agenda from they will be invited to pick their own gate. You come from any gate and then they will choose out of the eight gates.

00:46:30--> 00:46:49

Abubakar as a prophet something very unique. He he said Rasul Allah, is there anyone who will be invited through to enter from all of them, meaning all the gates of Jenna would welcome this person. He said none. He said yes, indeed a worker or a Jew and takuna Minho, and I hope that you're one of them.

00:46:51--> 00:47:30

And I'm wondering, I'm been, I've been reflecting why, because of a banker never hesitated. He never, he never missed out on an opportunity. And he gave once, twice, three times, always over and over again from the beginning until the end, he didn't stop, jumped on every opportunity that he had radi Allahu Allah, so inshallah to Allah, I need to inshallah tada have at least 10 more inshallah 10 more hands, you can, you can pledge you can look for someone, inshallah, to Allah, you can help us I'm sure you know, someone that you can talk to, and they will be passionate about this cause so I need to show at least 10 more hands be the last widget. So that's 1000 COVID Hamdulillah, we're

00:47:30--> 00:48:17

down to the last nine inshallah 10 to the last nine bit in the last region 1500 2000 3000 any amount inshallah to Allah will count and it will add up. Again, remember, you know, a lot of people don't realize how far this goes, you have 40 or 40 people, 40 students that are part of this program, right now, imagine how far this goes, this is this council sadaqa jariya. Because supporting this program is on the long run, right? Any person that this person will teach, inspire, answer guide to Islam, you will be the person that enable that. So this goes beyond it's not you know, just putting food in the belly of somebody in that sit right for a day or two. No, this goes beyond that. This

00:48:17--> 00:48:20

will inspire people who will take care of other people.

00:48:21--> 00:49:07

Right? So only Allah Subhana Allah knows how far this goes. I need inshallah to Allah. May Allah Subhana Allah bless you Baraka Luffy the COVID hamdulillah so anyone from Sharla we have also from the sister site I need inshallah the the last seven people were down to the last seven people 1500 2000 3000 any any amount inshallah to Allah will add up in the month of Ramadan sada Jerry I hope that everything that happens due to this moment inshallah Allah will be multiplied for you forever be the soldier I need to let you go and I need to go as well so inshallah Allah anyone any 500 Do we have any 502nd bit tooth? Three can we have 10 at least 500 right? Mashallah taquile we

00:49:07--> 00:49:51

are down to six five Mashallah, I'm down to five Mashallah, I need for more inshallah for more for I need. One who's the last person the last one inshallah for 500 Okay, can I have 300 those of us who can afford 300 inshallah, can we have five people with 305 one, we're down to four inshallah and I need 4 billion Allah has origin and we'll call it a day in sha Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala accept your contributions. And again, I urge you, I okay, we're down to three Shall I need three more with 300 we're down to two I need two more with 300 that is an end it can be done over a few months, right? So inshallah Allah wants me to, to end this but I don't want to end it to be honest

00:49:51--> 00:49:59

with you because I love this. You know, I feel I feel lucky. I feel blessings coming. I feel inspiration. Because this is this is this is a moment

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

Have

00:50:03--> 00:50:21

a deep connection with Allah subhanaw taala because only only someone who has deep connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala would be inspired to do this. Right so last, the last three people in sha Allah to Allah to inspire me to more inshallah, two more I need the last person one more May Allah Subhana Allah bless you Baraka love,

00:50:22--> 00:51:02

whoever pledged please see us at the reception, give your name and you can do credit card check whatever it is, this is for the seminary program, we have students who are memorizing the Quran full time are becoming Ireland and Ireland. And these are students who are also full time studying here and full time going to local colleges and universities. That's all they do. And they have to bear the expense of tuition both places. So we give about 60 to 70% financial aid to these students because they cannot afford so this is only for the seminary. Thank you very much Allah, Allah bless you all, by the way, so you know in the month of Ramadan, we recite Quran right for each hazard for

00:51:02--> 00:51:03

each letter, we get what

00:51:05--> 00:51:26

10 goodies, right, you know, in the month of Ramadan, you know, it's multiplied. And that's why we're encouraged to recite the Quran. Right? So 10 for each letter, that's, that's any any other time other than Ramadan, Ramadan, it gets multiplied. Now these 450 percent of the students of the 40 students are who fall people who constantly have to recite the Quran.

00:51:28--> 00:52:05

I'm just want you just to do, like do the math yourself go how much you know, we may not be able to recite the Quran every day. We may not be as committed, but these students are committed. Imagine enabling and providing the opportunity at Daniel Allen Haley caffarelli. Whoever enabled someone to do something good. It's as if they have done it themselves. I'm telling you, this is a shortcut to gender. You know, people say there are no shortcuts. This is a shortcut. You know, so think about it. Think about it supporting something like this is you know, beyond I can't even sit and calculate what it may do. Right for for the oma for the community and for you in La Jolla. salaam aleikum wa

00:52:05--> 00:52:06

Taala
