Hola, hola. Como Kolors de de la

00:01:03 --> 00:01:08

la hora Sula, who photographers opposing Alima and my bad my dear brothers and sisters.

00:01:10 --> 00:01:13

Can you hear me in the back clearly Can you hear me

00:01:16 --> 00:01:17

in the multipurpose room, okay.

00:01:21 --> 00:01:42

Well that Tina Robinette Tabata Kotar they are cool and her como khairthal Hectors Zora tamale macabre callus over to Allah Moon from McCulloh sofa, tada, Moon, Kala lo talamona el Melia pin that our own Jehane through melotel own Inelia pain from mellitus alone Naomi II the 99.

00:01:44 --> 00:01:48

So Allah subhanho wa taala, the Surah Surah together

00:01:53 --> 00:02:12

he's had on what to Allah the Almighty sorted MacArthur in eight verses. So this is for those who want the number surah number 102. So one or two in the Quranic order. So Allah Subhana Allah talks about how

00:02:13 --> 00:02:18

our competitive nature as human beings

00:02:19 --> 00:02:21

has distracted us

00:02:23 --> 00:02:44

causes a lot of distraction. So Allah subhanaw taala says, To catheter, which means two things, competition, and it means to seek more to seek an increase. So our competitive nature causes us to want more, either more

00:02:45 --> 00:02:52

than someone else, or more of what we already have, is just human nature.

00:02:53 --> 00:03:06

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned in a hadith, right, that if the son of Adam has a mountain or a valley of gold, he would want or wish for another.

00:03:07 --> 00:03:28

And even when we sit with ourselves, when we fantasize, Oh, I wonder if I if I'm able to make my first million or if I have this, what if I have the first house, I'm probably going to do this and then build another house where I'm going to live and then rent. So we always have this, we want more, right? More children,

00:03:29 --> 00:03:31

more wealth,

00:03:33 --> 00:03:54

more of everything. This is human nature. So this nature of hours, causes us to seek more but at the same time, it's also causes us to want to compete with other people. So um, I saw that you find a person who has plenty, not only do they have plenty, but they actually have more than they actually need.

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

They have more for them, maybe, maybe something that will sustain the entire neighborhood.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:07

Right. Yet, as soon as they see someone else that has more than them.

00:04:09 --> 00:04:10

Or if

00:04:11 --> 00:04:14

they are compared to someone else, they consider themselves less fortunate.

00:04:16 --> 00:04:45

Right. So 1400 years ago, Allah Subhana Allah revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Meccan period, when the prophesy said LEM had handful number of companions, and they did not have a lot of resources and those who did their resources and their wealth was taken away from them. Some of them had to make a conscious basically decision to give up their wealth in their properties. Not willingly, but they were taken away

00:04:46 --> 00:04:51

in order for them to preserve and hold on to their Deen to their religion.

00:04:52 --> 00:04:54

And some of them made that trade

00:04:55 --> 00:04:59

right of the companions. So Allah Subhana Allah

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

feels to them and obviously everyone around them

00:05:04 --> 00:05:08

these verses hola como taka for this competition

00:05:10 --> 00:05:11

in worldly gain

00:05:12 --> 00:05:30

right and unworldly increase is it's causing diversion and it's causing distraction in your life. It's distracting you. And then Allah subhanaw taala talks about Hotez ultimate macabre and this will continue to be the case until you actually

00:05:31 --> 00:05:43

it says your terms era is to visit until you visit the grave meaning until you end up in the grave and till you end up in your grave it Allah azza wa jal, some of the Realm has said calls this

00:05:44 --> 00:05:58

arrival to one's grave as a visit because it's it's it's temporary. You know, people say the grave is a final abode. It's really not the final assess transitional period, because we're gonna come out of these graves again,

00:05:59 --> 00:06:33

to what would be the final destination which we hope for all of us Inshallah, and for our loved ones and for our ancestors, the believing ancestors of ours to be generated for a dose, that's what we hope to be right. But there's another destination we ask Allah to protect us from hellfire. That is the final destination agenda in Milan anyway male agenda that is a final destination, but even the grave is not the final destination. So Allah azza wa jal calls this transition or going to the grave zyada Hotez Ottoman macabre until you actually visit the grave

00:06:35 --> 00:06:49

meaning until you die so until death comes this is human nature we want more we want more time we want more wealth, we want more children more more whatever we're craving more food

00:06:51 --> 00:06:58

you know this human beings we have this you know not you know, appetite for a lot of things.

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

So Allah Subhana Allah says however care less over Tala Moon filmmaker less over Tala Moon twice Allah subhanaw taala repeats it. But no, you will soon come to know.

00:07:14 --> 00:07:19

You will soon come to know Calello Tada Mona RealMedia clean indeed, if you were to

00:07:20 --> 00:07:55

know your fate with certainty, things would have been different. You would behave differently. Calello talamona and Melia pin. It doesn't say, you know, but basically says, know if you knew better if you have certainty, and then blank, right? Mean meaning you would act differently. You wouldn't behave like this, you would not put so much value in this dunya that we're going to leave behind. You wouldn't want more of what you're going to lose.

00:07:56 --> 00:08:02

See there, it doesn't make sense that we accumulate more of something that we're not going to even take with us.

00:08:04 --> 00:08:09

Right? That is exactly why the problem solved Allahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:08:11 --> 00:08:14

regarding this particular point

00:08:17 --> 00:08:21

reading this specific surah in the collection of Imam Muslim

00:08:23 --> 00:08:26

majority, even Abdullah she reports that his father

00:08:27 --> 00:08:39

told him I am going to be a solo Allahu alayhi wa sallam I came to the messenger but to the Prophet of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him Whoa, a Accra and he was reading this Surah Al How could with the cattle?

00:08:40 --> 00:09:11

Then the province has commented, he said, he according to Adam, promises Adam is amazed by the nature of man says, the son of Adam says we according to Adam Malli, Malli, my wealth, my wealth, my property, my land, look at my account, we always say something like this, I own this, and I own that. And I have this and I have that. We talked about these things, even to ourselves, if not to other people, we don't brag, we talk about it to you know, to ourselves.

00:09:12 --> 00:09:17

We always attribute all what we have to ourselves like as if we really really own it.

00:09:18 --> 00:09:31

Right? I mean, it is in your name, you're responsible for it, you pay taxes, you You work so hard to you know, maintain it and all of that, but really, is it your core revenue as a family, family, my wealth, my wealth.

00:09:32 --> 00:09:44

My wealth is this much my wealth is that much. But then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, God, the promises of God says, Well, how lucky I am to Adam Malika 11 o'clock at night.

00:09:45 --> 00:09:48

If you really think about it, son of Adam, be real man.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:50

Be real.

00:09:52 --> 00:09:59

Right? Don't Don't deceive yourself. Be real. You know, be honest with yourself. Do you really possess of your wealth?

00:10:00 --> 00:10:06

except the promise, I'm gonna mention three things he said, that wish you consume

00:10:08 --> 00:10:08

and you finish.

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

Right? Doesn't matter if you have all the food in the world, right, you can only eat so much. Whatever you can fit into your belly. And whatever you belly can digest even whatever you fit into your belly, you know, there may be stuff that you won't be able to eat because you're allergic to it or it doesn't, you know, set well with you.

00:10:31 --> 00:10:34

There's there's a limited capacity to what we can consume.

00:10:36 --> 00:10:47

So, only that which you ended up eating, which is very limited compared to what we have compared to what the average person that we all by the way the average person has more than than we need.

00:10:49 --> 00:10:56

And this is why the province has set them says that if you if you have what will last you for 24 hours, then you have Dunia

00:10:59 --> 00:11:08

says, I will be staring at a blade or that which you wear and then you end up wearing it out you wear it long enough until it's it's no longer good enough

00:11:10 --> 00:11:11

out so doctor

00:11:12 --> 00:11:14

for I'm late oh for update

00:11:15 --> 00:11:26

said or that which you choose to give away and share with others for the PCB Lila, you're given charity. And that is what you're going to send forth.

00:11:27 --> 00:11:35

This is either something that you are going to consume, or wear out or something that you're going to save up for IRA.

00:11:36 --> 00:11:40

By means of giving it by virtue of giving it as a as a charity.

00:11:41 --> 00:11:55

Everything else what we call saving, we may we may benefit from it, and we may not benefit from it. And chances are we're going to benefit from very little of it.

00:11:57 --> 00:12:02

Right? So this is the Dounia that we're competing over that is distracting us.

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

And whoever understands the reality of duniya will be able to manage it. I say manage it because it is a burden.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:21

It is an opportunity. Don't get me wrong. And we're very privileged, and we should be very thankful. As a matter of fact, this sort of talks about thankfulness,

00:12:22 --> 00:12:32

be thankful for what we have. But if we are able to understand, you know, it all goes back to understanding the reality of this dunya.

00:12:33 --> 00:12:51

And why we're here and this is why this is something that we need to be reminded of, we have to remind ourselves and we have to remind one another of this because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us a harbor and I will conclude with this well Allah he will fakra Asha. Now poverty is something the prophesy of Salem sought refuge in Allah from

00:12:52 --> 00:13:03

and poverty is something that a believer should seek to rid himself and his family from poverty, somebody that we should beg Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect us alarming and becoming uncomfortable.

00:13:04 --> 00:13:21

And it's associated with disbelief. Poverty is something horrible, it's a horrible thing. So horrible experience. May Allah subhanaw taala enrich all of our community members and our loved ones. May Allah subhanaw taala take care of every poor person out there. So to be in need

00:13:22 --> 00:13:25

to be desperate to be poor. Poverty is a horrible thing.

00:13:27 --> 00:13:30

Those those who experience it know how awful it is.

00:13:32 --> 00:13:41

Right? So poverty is a horrible thing. Yes, the prophesy Selim says to his companions, I really don't fear poverty for you.

00:13:42 --> 00:13:55

As much as I fear Allah Himal fakra Asha Alikum Well, I can actually go and talk to Halleck Madonia. What I fear the most for you is that Allah opens up duniya to you.

00:13:56 --> 00:13:58

You have access to wealth.

00:13:59 --> 00:14:07

You have access to resources, you have access to new territories, you have access to power.

00:14:09 --> 00:14:20

Right you have you have privileges. Well, I can share and talk to Holly could Dunia can I afford the house public home, as it was given an open to those who were before you?

00:14:23 --> 00:14:28

That and if I sue her come out and if I saw her and you end up competing over it,

00:14:29 --> 00:14:40

you end up fighting for it, not fighting. You know, you end up fighting each other for it and you end up fighting over it.

00:14:43 --> 00:14:48

That is how long someone said, you know how foolish is man, human being? How foolish

00:14:50 --> 00:14:53

you know we fight over something that doesn't weigh the wings of a mosquito.

00:14:55 --> 00:15:00

Again, because we don't understand the reality of dunya so if anything if anyone wants to know what this was all

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

But that's about understanding the reality of dystonia

00:15:04 --> 00:15:04


00:15:05 --> 00:15:08

We're going to leave it with nothing except

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

you know, three layers of fabric, which we don't even end up you know, picking someone else who's going to pick for us

00:15:20 --> 00:15:36

so the prophecy says, Well, I can actually on top of the harlequin Dunia California Hotel and let the public room I fear that dunya is opened up for you to you as it was to those who are before you fat and if I sue her come out and sue her and you end up falling the same trap, which is compete over it and fight for it.

00:15:37 --> 00:15:39

Right? Pretend

00:15:40 --> 00:15:45

to Holika calm come home, and it will destroy you like destroy them.

00:15:46 --> 00:15:51

And it's very interesting the word Al hakam at MacArthur al

00:15:52 --> 00:15:55

Kathal will end up to aL Hallak.

00:15:57 --> 00:15:58


00:15:59 --> 00:15:59


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

competitive nature competition leads to distraction. Distraction leads to destruction.

00:16:08 --> 00:16:26

And people compete with one another wrong each other for the sake of dunya and hot people you don't even know to know you don't even need to know the value of Jana the value of aphylla which Allah subhanaw taala says in comparison to Accra, metalhead. duniya Illa Khalil is nothing is very little.

00:16:28 --> 00:16:44

You don't even need to know what is in Jana. You just have to understand the reality of dunya. And he would know that it's not worth it. It's not worth what some of us do for its sake, and it will abandon us and we will abandon it.

00:16:45 --> 00:16:48

And it will forsake us dunya will forsake us

00:16:50 --> 00:17:04

and we will leave it and it will be a burden on the Day of Judgment unless we manage it and we manage it very well may Allah subhanaw taala make you and I have those who understand the reality of this life. Those who fear Allah subhanaw taala and whatever they do,

00:17:06 --> 00:17:15

and pursue whatever they pursue for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala and stay away from that which displeases Allah azza wa jal

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

according to the Samaritan, merciful Allah honey welcome, for Sophia we are Fila Camino hula for all right.

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


00:17:40 --> 00:17:41

wa Salatu was Salam ala

00:17:46 --> 00:17:51

so how a lot even some of these fights and the struggles that some people have,

00:17:53 --> 00:17:55

though, the slogans that are used,

00:17:56 --> 00:17:57


00:17:59 --> 00:18:07

ethically, you know, valued slogans. But at the core of many of these fights, the struggle

00:18:08 --> 00:18:11

is materialism, and duniya.

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

Equal this equal that's all for Didya.

00:18:18 --> 00:18:21

And that is why these fights don't end.

00:18:22 --> 00:18:33

And there is no victory. There is no winners. Everybody is a loser. On the long run, societies lose unless they really consider

00:18:34 --> 00:18:39

embracing and following divine command and divine guidance.

00:18:41 --> 00:18:47

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a hadith collected by Imam Muhammad said MaineCare that it duniya

00:18:49 --> 00:18:50


00:18:51 --> 00:18:53

ferok Allahu Umrah

00:18:54 --> 00:18:56

was Jada Hubei

00:18:58 --> 00:19:01

Well, I'm here at Humana duniya LM equity Bella

00:19:02 --> 00:19:03


00:19:04 --> 00:19:10

makes duniya his utmost and most sensual concern. Whoever

00:19:11 --> 00:19:13

is concerned about dunya

00:19:15 --> 00:19:21

Allah subhanho wa Taala will shatter his affairs, this person will be shattered all over the place

00:19:25 --> 00:19:32

and his poverty will not leave him the person will always be poor even if they have you know, this is what a lot of people sometimes people equate.

00:19:34 --> 00:19:37

Right? wealth, wealth does not make you rich.

00:19:39 --> 00:19:42

There are a lot of wealthy people who are impoverished.

00:19:43 --> 00:19:44

They're never satisfied.

00:19:46 --> 00:19:54

They they have they have the spirit of a poor person and impoverished person not a poor person or an impoverished person.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:59

Yeah, at any level man on cathedra lacking no faqeer

Fatigue Afula faqeer filthy faqeer front row

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


00:20:07 --> 00:20:09

they resort to very like

00:20:12 --> 00:20:13

you know low tactics

00:20:15 --> 00:20:16

yeah and he ends

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

man Allah Subhana Allah Karabo

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

Bill Murray

00:20:23 --> 00:20:24

hey somebody

00:20:25 --> 00:20:31

Allahumma lackey Nova que les 70 Wamena nurse Malay Salah Houma Allah King Honey, let me

00:20:33 --> 00:20:35

tell you during the WHO Nipsey it's true.

00:20:36 --> 00:20:38

And what novella

00:20:39 --> 00:20:40

Well, I can hear plenty

00:20:41 --> 00:20:43

of if Sharif

00:20:46 --> 00:20:55

some people may or may not have wealth. They may be poor from that, you know, but they're really rich. They have rich souls, rich minds.

00:20:56 --> 00:20:57

lofty goals.

00:20:59 --> 00:21:04

Right? They don't resort you know that they have class. They don't have wealth, but they have class.

00:21:07 --> 00:21:12

So the prophesy Selim says that a person who pursues dunya and this focus is nothing but dunya ALLAH SubhanA Giada for

00:21:13 --> 00:21:16

that person will always be poor will never have enough.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:29

Right? Well, I'm yet to him in a duniya LM equitable and he will not get off Dunia no matter how hard he tries, he will not get from dunya except that which was written for him.

00:21:31 --> 00:21:33

Wallah Wallahi algebra yet law,

00:21:34 --> 00:21:37

math for algebra talab

00:21:39 --> 00:21:44

you know, they try so hard but they're only going to get what Allah has written for them.

00:21:47 --> 00:21:49

Woman capital akhira too.

00:21:51 --> 00:21:51


00:21:53 --> 00:21:56

however, whoever makes Accra his intention?

00:21:57 --> 00:21:58

Gemma Allah Who Amara,

00:22:00 --> 00:22:02

Allah subhanaw taala will reconcile his affairs

00:22:03 --> 00:22:05

that person will have focus and will have

00:22:06 --> 00:22:09

stability and will have balance and

00:22:11 --> 00:22:25

well, yeah, you know, who feel better, and Allah subhanaw taala will enrich that person in his heart, at the core, that person will be a very rich and satisfied person will live a life better than those who have much more wealth than him.

00:22:26 --> 00:22:31

What I took duniya here Rahima and duniya will come to him.

00:22:34 --> 00:22:37

duniya will come to him. Right?

00:22:38 --> 00:22:51

Whatever Allah has written for him will, you will either come upon it, or it will come to him. Allah subhanaw taala will bring it. And the stories are many. I'm not talking about ancient stories will lie in my lifetime.

00:22:52 --> 00:23:09

In my lifetime, I have known people who thought who were who were reliant on their wealth. And they thought their wealth will not only last them, it will outlast them obviously, but it will last it will be it will actually pass on to their great grandchildren.

00:23:11 --> 00:23:12

They lost it in their lifetime.

00:23:13 --> 00:23:16

Any change can come anything, any political change anything.

00:23:17 --> 00:23:21

And there were people who didn't have much and had many children.

00:23:23 --> 00:23:30

But they had faith in Allah subhanaw taala and they were hard working people but they were very rich, and they raised their children to be responsible.

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

And Allah subhanaw taala enrich them.

00:23:34 --> 00:23:39

And Allah subhanaw taala bless them, and bless their children and their grandchildren.

00:23:41 --> 00:23:52

So, my dear brothers and sisters, let's understand the reality of this dunya and let's work hard and a struggle. But the struggle for Africa

00:23:54 --> 00:23:57

and whatever dunya we have, be thankful for it

00:23:58 --> 00:24:09

and use it as Allah subhanaw taala would be pleased with us, knowing that Allah azza wa jal will hold us accountable for what he blesses us with and how we manage it.

00:24:10 --> 00:24:12

And live a good life.
