We have nothing to eat at home. So hungry.

00:07:25--> 00:07:29

So he went in he grabbed his knife and the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam advised him not to

00:07:32--> 00:07:45

come near any animal or any lamb that is lactating because a lactating lamb produces milk and it probably has babies. So he said avoid that. So if you want to slaughter slaughter something

00:07:47--> 00:07:59

So the man went slaughtered an animal cooked for them food and they ate and they drank milk and water and some fresh dates. This was their meal.

00:08:01--> 00:08:02

Fella man, Masha Biru

00:08:03--> 00:08:09

what our cada Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam le Abby victory Norma

00:08:10--> 00:08:24

when they drank and they ate and they were full. The messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Abu Bakr and Omar, one lady in fcbd. That was Aluna and have a name.

00:08:26--> 00:08:36

One lady in fcbd that was Aluna and had an AMI Omen PM. Raja Coleman booty como yo, so malem TOJIRO hetta Asada command na

00:08:38--> 00:08:42

the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, to walk

00:08:43--> 00:08:58

by him in whose hand is my life, meaning ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala you will certainly and surely be questioned and asked about this blessing in these bounties, this bounty that you were able to enjoy.

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

On the Day of Judgment, Allah will ask you, hunger brought you out of your houses,

00:09:07--> 00:09:13

then you're not going to go back until this bounty came to you and you now your foot.

00:09:16--> 00:09:21

Now, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was referring to a verse in the Quran,

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

from Surah photocathode

00:09:26--> 00:09:33

where Allah subhana wa Taala at the end of the surah that talks about how competition,

00:09:35--> 00:09:36

consumerism,

00:09:38--> 00:09:46

this competitive nature of us as human beings, and us going to own more,

00:09:47--> 00:09:51

wanting to own more and competing with one another.

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

How that can be a source of distraction. So Allah subhanaw taala says Al Hakim will MacArthur at the end of that

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

What up, I'll hack motor carrier meaning competition for more gains distracts you from remembering Allah and from remembering your primary mission in this life at the end of the Surah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Through mana to Luna woman eating and enduring,

00:10:21--> 00:10:35

then on that day meaning the Day of Judgment, that's the context, you will surely indefinitely be questioned and asked about the luxuries and the pleasures that you are able to experience in dunya.

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

So the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was referring to that verse, when that verse was revealed, mind you, it's a matte Converse.

00:10:47--> 00:10:52

That was revealed in the Macan days, when that verse was revealed,

00:10:53--> 00:10:56

one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

actually the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his own cousin.

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

As to

00:11:07--> 00:11:14

when this verse was revealed to summit converse, they had nothing. As a matter of fact, the very little bit some of them had, they had to give that up.

00:11:15--> 00:11:19

And they were under persecution. They were a persecuted

00:11:21--> 00:11:27

minority can where the law can or Killa Let me shake for them man. So let's have the hill if

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

fathers were you.

00:11:32--> 00:11:39

The messengers cousin, well, how are you going to school Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his disciple. He said to him, Rasul Allah.

00:11:40--> 00:11:44

For a unary Musa and one we're in nama human as a terminally ill man.

00:11:45--> 00:11:57

When this verse was revealed, as read and I wondered, he said, Messenger of Allah, what luxuries? What blank pleasures are we going to be questioned about? All we have is date and water. That's all we have.

00:11:58--> 00:12:12

They were minimalist. They had very little resources about the Allahu Anhu. So the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, I'm an inner who say Akun, he said, Don't worry, it will happen. It's coming in your future.

00:12:15--> 00:12:22

As a matter of fact, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when some of the poor companions came to him.

00:12:24--> 00:12:27

At one point, when Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:29--> 00:12:36

allowed the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to to see the beginning of the Great conquest.

00:12:37--> 00:12:41

A lot of wealth started to pour into Medina was brought into Medina.

00:12:42--> 00:12:46

So when the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day prayed for Niger.

00:12:47--> 00:12:54

Some of those companions were with very little resources to none because there were many companions that were homeless.

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

They came to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because they had heard that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam received some of these booties and some of the spoils of war and some of these, that a lot of wealth was brought into Medina. So they came to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam them

00:13:15--> 00:13:22

and when the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw them the model and the video Salalah how are they selling Barbra us happy lady and send me an email and we will.

00:13:24--> 00:13:37

Jeju Allah Allah sin Fraser Fela Mara whenever you Salah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, God oven Newcomb, Samia to Abba obey that's a paddy maybe che immunol behind. He said, I think you heard that a way that brought some wealth, some money from Bahrain,

00:13:39--> 00:13:59

for cardhu, Algeria rasool Allah they said Indeed Messenger of Allah, that's what we're here for. God for AB Shiro, what a middleman Surah confirm Allah heman fakra Asha Alikum he said don't worry, glad tidings I will inshallah you will be pleased with what I'm going to give you an offer you but he said by Allah I do not fear poverty.

00:14:01--> 00:14:04

I do not fear poverty for you as a community.

00:14:06--> 00:14:14

Well, I kidney Asha Allah you've come unto sofa dunya Aliko what I fear for you is that Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:15--> 00:14:20

gives you plenty of wealth, that Allah will give you worldly riches.

00:14:22--> 00:14:59

Come and Allah and Allah mankind as it was for those who are before you, for 10 Alpha su hakama 10 Alpha Suha and then you end up competing for it as they used to compete what to Polycom camera and a catalogue, and it will actually ruin you as it ruined them. Competition over dunya. Now, going back to that first story that we started with, that was the exception. The messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, Abu Bakr and Omar, having that kind of meal was the exception. It wasn't the norm

00:15:01--> 00:15:10

They didn't have meals three times a day. Some of them did twice, maybe a day. But it was the most common was just once a day.

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

And they didn't have variety. Usually, it's just one one thing.

00:15:16--> 00:15:19

One type of drink one type of food item.

00:15:21--> 00:15:28

Yet, when they experienced that, once, in a blue moon,

00:15:30--> 00:15:46

occasion, were one of the companions, that Allah subhanaw taala, blessed, invited them for this meal, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam reminded them that they will be asked on the day of judgment and be questioned about this pleasure.

00:15:48--> 00:15:51

Now here, you and I are my dear brothers and sisters,

00:15:53--> 00:15:57

we have a lot of, we have plenty. As a matter of fact,

00:15:58--> 00:16:04

if you look up any of the studies that talk about American consumerism,

00:16:05--> 00:16:10

we, by the way, as Americans, we are the most wasteful nation on the face of the planet.

00:16:12--> 00:16:16

And we have access to 40% of the world's

00:16:17--> 00:16:18

resources.

00:16:21--> 00:16:24

In terms of our consumption, and what we 40%

00:16:26--> 00:16:29

Some of you are like, are you serious? Look it up.

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

And guess what

00:16:35--> 00:16:41

30% 1/3 of the food produced in the United States of America goes to waste.

00:16:43--> 00:16:59

So my soul that we are right now running out of space, through everywhere, every state, every city, every municipality, is challenged with the amount of waste and garbage. Because we don't have a space.

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

I was shocked to learn that it takes 25 years

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

for a head of lettuce

00:17:10--> 00:17:13

to decompose, and our landfill

00:17:14--> 00:17:16

because it's not happening properly.

00:17:18--> 00:17:21

And the amount of methane gas that we're actually

00:17:22--> 00:17:30

that are coming out from these landfill, because we're not actually even managing our garbage properly. By the way, Japan and ask Brother,

00:17:31--> 00:17:38

if you want to Japan is way ahead of us. Those six days that I spent in Japan, but 10 years ago was just

00:17:39--> 00:17:46

eye opener way ahead of us when it comes to managing their garbage and their waste.

00:17:50--> 00:18:25

Consumerism is killing us. And then once in a while we experience something like this, where we rush to the grocery stores, and they're either closed or they're out of products, because everyone was rushing to beat the storm. Because Americans you know, God forbid, how can we say at home with the you know, without variety of snacks and everything, snacks were wiped off the shelf of some of these grocery stores, because people knew we're gonna be at home. What do we do? We eat?

00:18:27--> 00:18:34

How do we kill time? We watch TV, we scroll down on our devices, and we eat we consume

00:18:35--> 00:18:37

that alone Naomi, Edna.

00:18:39--> 00:18:55

This was just a reminder of the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala upon us, I asked Allah azza wa jal to make you and I have those who are grateful for what they have. Those who also remember those who don't have as much those who don't have shelter, those who don't have food, those who are in the open.

00:18:57--> 00:19:16

May Allah subhanaw taala ease their suffering and reach out to them by any means make dua or in sha Allah Who to Allah find a way to deliver something meaningful to them. May Allah subhanaw taala make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of who they listen to a cooler head of cola syrup for Allah honey welcome conference up the road. You have Phil aquamarina Who will afford Rahim.

00:19:25--> 00:19:46

Al hamdu Lillahi wa salatu salam ala evadne Living in a sofa or bed. What prompted me to talk about this today my dear brothers and sisters, two things number one, a reminder that most of us got as a text message or as a message that we need to conserve when it comes to the use of energy. Because there was a huge load on the grid on the power grid.

00:19:47--> 00:19:56

And chances are I didn't get enough time to actually look into it. Chances are some areas had

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

they they lost power

00:20:01--> 00:20:09

So we're told that hey, you guys are doing too much. Because it's not like there are more people in Memphis, right?

00:20:11--> 00:20:19

So, we really need to look into our wasteful habits and inshallah to Allah, the next

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

couple of months insha Allah to Allah, we're going to talk about this, what can we do? There are about four or 500 of us here. And sometimes we think of ourselves as like, oh, what what can I do? You know, if I can serve, if I start really living a minimalist life, no, we can we can make a huge difference. And inshallah we'll talk about that being there later on. But really, we need to be very cautious because the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, our master our teacher, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to fulfill our own individual responsibilities. And also as families

00:20:57--> 00:21:09

we need to really start becoming cautious about this, and conscious about this as well. We need to be careful. We also need to be aware, I'm saying both both things.

00:21:10--> 00:21:17

Conscious because it has to do with our Africa, let alone Naomi eating and enduring conscious because it has to do with our dunya

00:21:18--> 00:21:19

we have to be aware.

00:21:20--> 00:21:28

So may Allah subhanaw taala help us get there. So dear parents, their mothers, their fathers

00:21:29--> 00:21:47

do not you know sometimes some of us we feel shy we think okay, our our children are gonna think that there's something wrong with us that we're being cheap and stuff like that. No. Wallah is not about that. One of the greatest lessons My father taught me was to be really careful and it took me a long time actually to get it.

00:21:49--> 00:22:03

We waste a lot of water. I tell you some research that I did, just splitting the research that I did is scary how much water we waste, especially us Muslims because we use them out of water. You know what I'm talking about, right? The amount of water we use, he left sooner

00:22:04--> 00:22:10

as soon as Canada because sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and yet what Dobbin what we have tested OB Assad.

00:22:11--> 00:22:28

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam made will do with a handful amount of water that's it, I will will do is not in accordance to the Sunnah of the Prophet size, and then we waste a lot of water, we let the water run all the way. Right and we are standing there making, you know washing our hands and admiring our beauty.

00:22:30--> 00:23:10

We waste a lot of water and when it comes to electricity as well, we waste a lot of electricity and power. So we need to be to be really concerned about that because it has to do with that we're doing it and it has to do with our Acura, be delighted. The other reason I wanted to actually bring this up is for us to be thankful for what we have when we have it because every now and then Allah subhanaw taala makes us get a glimpse makes us get a taste of what it's like not to have all the luxuries and all the riches and all the comfortable you know resources that we have. Every now and then. As a reminder why?

00:23:11--> 00:23:15

Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would work the movie harder in the law. Hello al guardian.

00:23:16--> 00:23:31

Yes, Robin Sharma. mailman, fair. Where Quran. Allah, Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with his servant, when that servant of his enjoys a meal or a drink. And then thanks Allah subhanaw taala for it.

00:23:32--> 00:24:00

So be thankful for what you have, and do not complain about anything, any of the things that we lost, right? Being locked at home we had, we had time, spend quality time with a family. Do not complain about any of these things. And remember those who don't have what we have, and be thankful for everything that you have May Allah subhanaw taala not cause us to lose our blessings that He blessed us with due to our lack of gratefulness

00:24:02--> 00:24:10

due to our lack of gratitude. Allahu manana oh the becoming so well in ametek What the hell will you take what would yell at you next metric watch me

00:24:11--> 00:24:15

hola hola. feelin our the one in the corner with a man Well I'll tell you if you
