de Mona aroma De La Hoya Shara dear brothers and sisters. Imagine

00:04:35--> 00:04:36

if a region

00:04:37--> 00:04:40

or a county or a state

00:04:42--> 00:04:43

in a federation

00:04:45--> 00:04:49

decided to exempt its citizens citizens and residents

00:04:50--> 00:04:55

from federal tax from paying their federal tax. What do you think will happen?

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

Answer me

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

What do you think will happen?

00:05:02--> 00:05:06

lawyers, people who city what will happen? Tell me someone?

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

Yes, brother, tell me what would happen.

00:05:12--> 00:05:13

Anyone shouted up

00:05:15--> 00:05:20

civil civil collapse. No before that what would happen? Civil War,

00:05:22--> 00:05:25

Civil War, right. The federal government will

00:05:26--> 00:05:41

find itself compelled and forced to go to war with that particular area. It could start with a legal war, but eventually it may escalate to an armed conflict.

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

Right?

00:05:44--> 00:05:46

Because it's one of those basic

00:05:48--> 00:05:48

duties.

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

One of the basic duties,

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

it is such a serious issue

00:05:57--> 00:06:01

that a state may go to war over it.

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

Early on in the history of the Muslim community.

00:06:11--> 00:06:13

As soon as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away

00:06:16--> 00:06:17

certain tribes,

00:06:18--> 00:06:25

actually the majority of the tribes, in fact, it wasn't even one region or one state, or one city or one village.

00:06:27--> 00:06:27

Islam

00:06:30--> 00:06:38

remained to be in only three cities in one region, in the, in the, in the western region of Arabia.

00:06:39--> 00:06:53

Everywhere else they conspired to withhold zakat. They dropped the cat they said, We used to always look at to Mohammed Mohammed is dead. We no longer Osaka

00:06:56--> 00:07:11

they knock down one of the pillars of Islam as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Hadith, which is the theme of our what was this month booni on Islam, Allah humps Islam was built upon five things, five pillars.

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

The third pillar is the cat

00:07:16--> 00:07:22

never has a loss of Hannah with the ANA. I mean Randy which finding the core and Salah being mentioned

00:07:23--> 00:07:24

without Zika

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

one of the one of the most common

00:07:31--> 00:07:33

statements in the Quran

00:07:34--> 00:07:39

is Thomas Salah. He says aka Alinea, p masala tuna is a cow.

00:07:42--> 00:07:44

The cow was mentioned more than fasting in the Quran.

00:07:47--> 00:07:50

His account was mentioned more than Hajj in the Quran,

00:07:53--> 00:08:02

Zakat and something else that is of the nature of the cow, which is Sadako was mentioned more than even Salah I would comfortably say

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

over and over again.

00:08:07--> 00:08:19

For some reason, this is this has to do with an area where we need a lot of reminder, and motivation. And guess what the very first thing that was dropped of Islam

00:08:20--> 00:08:21

was the cut.

00:08:25--> 00:08:37

So I intend in this hope for brothers and sisters, to shed some light on the cat and share some information with you we won't be able to cover as a cat, the cat requires a whole maybe days.

00:08:38--> 00:08:55

Like if we want to if we want to cover every aspect of solar, but that's not the intention in this photo. And this photo, my objective, I have three objectives. One, shed some light and share some information about some very critical and important information about Zika. So I want you to pay close attention.

00:08:57--> 00:09:03

I'm not raising fund, I'm telling you about something that you will have to face and deal with on the Day of Resurrection.

00:09:05--> 00:09:10

It's very serious. So I'm going to share some information number two,

00:09:13--> 00:09:23

awaken awakened this moral, this sense of moral obligation that we have. A lot of times people think that was what's the big deal.

00:09:24--> 00:09:26

No, there is an ethical dimension to it.

00:09:28--> 00:09:30

And one should feel ashamed of himself.

00:09:31--> 00:09:39

realize that this is this goes beyond just calculating two and a half percent of just giving it to someone to take care of it for you.

00:09:42--> 00:09:43

Number three,

00:09:44--> 00:09:46

get us in sha Allah tala to commit

00:09:47--> 00:09:48

to be a community

00:09:50--> 00:09:53

that fulfills its deca

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

does its Zakah

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

engages

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

In Zika, delivers Zika pays the cap gives Zika and believe it or not, all these terms were used in reference to the cat.

00:10:13--> 00:10:34

Because sometimes we will think that is it guys just something they just give or just throw away? No. Allah subhanaw taala says, Those who deliver Zika those who give Zika those who share Zika those who pay there is a cap and in a in one particular ayah Allah says what led you to homeless Zika T

00:10:35--> 00:10:53

and those who do occur, the cause an action is not simply something that you just calculate. And then you pay no, no, it is something that you do is an action. It is something that you engage in. It is a process that is bigger than than many of us

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

make it to seem to be

00:10:57--> 00:11:02

zakat. Abubakar the long run who was forced to go to war,

00:11:04--> 00:11:10

with the majority of the Muslim community because they withheld Zakat, the majority of the Muslim community

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

they actually left Islam because they dropped the cut. they conspired to withhold soccer or to abolish soccer.

00:11:23--> 00:11:26

And everyone says in history there's consensus.

00:11:27--> 00:11:36

There is consensus from the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam amongst the companions and those who follow them, that the Muslim community

00:11:38--> 00:11:43

owes Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu for making that brave decision.

00:11:45--> 00:12:12

He even said that I will go to war, even if I have to fight them by myself. When some of the companions like Tom and others were hesitant, they said, how could we fight fight them? They're the majority now, not maybe I would comfortably say maybe 90% 90% of the Muslim population, left it to them. You know, why? Not? Because they no longer believe the Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim was a prophet or because they denied the loss of Hannah hautala.

00:12:13--> 00:12:34

Initially, it was mainly because they decided not to pay zakat. They said class, the cause done. We used to always occur to Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam now that he had passed away, we don't always look at you. No, we're not gonna give it to anyone that's they withheld Zika This is how serious this issue is.

00:12:35--> 00:12:37

And I woke up said, I'm going to work.

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

Tomorrow the alarm said, What are you doing? It will look how could you go to work? I mean, they say Lie, lie, lie. They pray. They used to pray five times.

00:12:47--> 00:12:59

They pray and they're going to do other things. So can we just he said no Allah. No katella number four rabina Salatu was occur. I will indeed fight

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

in wage war against those who

00:13:04--> 00:13:06

distinguish or separates a calf from Salah.

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

Can you imagine a Muslim community Imagine if the community decided to shut the machine down

00:13:14--> 00:13:16

and abolish or cancel salaat

00:13:18--> 00:13:36

we cannot cancel one slot let alone cancel all slot. Imagine what will happen here if we decide to to say almost some community in America were so busy let us just abolish Juma no more drama people will be up in arms right there will be an uproar here.

00:13:38--> 00:13:46

Can you imagine if I stood up on this member? Or if I stand on this member and I come in I tell you Okay, from now on you no longer have to

00:13:47--> 00:13:48

pray Juma

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

Zakat

00:13:56--> 00:13:57

what happened to the Muslim Ummah?

00:14:01--> 00:14:05

You know, the majority of those people who memorize the Quran died because of these wars.

00:14:08--> 00:14:13

The so called civil war that occurred. The majority of those who memorize the poor end were slain.

00:14:15--> 00:14:18

Great companions like Abu hanifa

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

Ivanova

00:14:22--> 00:14:23

zeytinburnu hapa,

00:14:24--> 00:14:26

who accepted Islam before Amara de la

00:14:28--> 00:14:33

serie de minimis aid, Salah Mola Biafra Eva, green great names were killed.

00:14:37--> 00:14:43

Abu Bakar deployed armies sent them to various parts, one under the leadership of

00:14:44--> 00:15:00

a live Navy pilot, another one under the leadership of Abu Dhabi, another one under the leadership of cultural elite, another one under the leadership of Nkrumah to the various parts. There were fewer and number, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in turn until they were able to

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

To bring back the oma into the fold of Islam.

00:15:04--> 00:15:08

Had it not been By the way, had it not been for that decision.

00:15:11--> 00:15:20

We you and I probably would have not been Muslims today, Islam would have would have ended as we know it. It's a cat. This is because of the cat.

00:15:21--> 00:15:26

Yet, it is one of the most neglected Pillars of Islam.

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

People take it lightly.

00:15:31--> 00:15:37

In fact, there are some people who maybe even bothered by it. They wish that Allah subhanaw taala did not even reveal

00:15:39--> 00:15:50

and legislation in which the cut is made mandatory. Like oh, why do we have we were paying so many things, we have so many financial obligations to panela. Aquila.

00:15:51--> 00:16:02

What if we would like some other nations or some other that have to pay 10% of their of their gross income, not even saving income?

00:16:04--> 00:16:08

What if I come and I tell you, you have to pay 20% of your gross income?

00:16:10--> 00:16:12

Two and a half, two and a half percent?

00:16:14--> 00:16:15

And just because

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

there there is no we don't have a treasury department that is going to go after us. Because we're not fulfilling there is a cat obligation.

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

Right?

00:16:27--> 00:16:30

Many people take their taxes seriously, it's a cut.

00:16:31--> 00:16:41

And they say well, I'm paying taxes, you know, isn't that does that exempt me from having to pay zakat somehow unless the other way around? In fact, you will get tax exemption if you pay your zakat.

00:16:43--> 00:16:47

Even Obama knows how important it is. How many times does he bring it up?

00:16:48--> 00:16:50

Whenever he addresses the Muslims?

00:16:54--> 00:16:55

It is important you get tax exemption.

00:16:57--> 00:16:58

Two and a half percent

00:16:59--> 00:17:03

of whatever amount of money exceeds

00:17:04--> 00:17:05

a particular amount.

00:17:08--> 00:17:26

$3,000 something around that range based on the price of gold. Right? If you have that much for a whole year, or you have more than that two and a half percent, that's what you owe. Someone might say, wait a minute, does that mean that I may have to basically sell some of my you know, solid assets? Or

00:17:28--> 00:17:30

do I have to liquidate? Yeah, if you have to.

00:17:31--> 00:17:40

You're not going to tell the IRS if you owe the money at all. Do I have to liquidate? Yeah, you have to bet you have to liquidate This is how the law is handled with Anna.

00:17:42--> 00:17:50

And by the way, those of us who think that Well, I have not really been taking myself seriously and have done I'm fine. I'm blessed. Maybe it's not that important. You think so.

00:17:51--> 00:17:57

You know, when people evade taxes, and the government finds out, they let them do it for for few years.

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

And in the process, they're building a case against them.

00:18:02--> 00:18:08

So those of us who are neglecting the clan, they think that they are they can get away with it. Allah is building a case against you.

00:18:10--> 00:18:18

Allah is building a case against you and there will be a day of judgment. And on that day, no one will be able to bring

00:18:19--> 00:18:47

lawyers or people that will help him find some some kind of loopholes and and try to reduce the sentence level Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, yo yo, ma Allah hi fi nadie Johanna, the wealth of that individual that deprives people from there is a cap. The person that withholds the kind of loss of habitat, he says their wealth will be brought and turned into plates of gold and silver.

00:18:49--> 00:18:57

plates of gold and silver, your family happy marriage and the minute it will be heated in the health and the Hellfire

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

for two quite big bear What do you know about them

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

and their foreheads, their sides and their backs will be branded

00:19:13--> 00:19:16

and heated and burnt. With those plates.

00:19:18--> 00:19:28

Have a mechanism Liam fusi come this is what you withheld for yourself. This is what you were thinking you were saving. Here it is. Take it the person will be buried

00:19:29--> 00:19:30

in their wealth.

00:19:33--> 00:19:48

They will drown in their wealth they will suffocate in their wealth on the day of judgment and those who will hold Zakah with regards to candles the prophet SAW Selim says that Allah will bring these candles in these candles will step and bite that individual

00:19:50--> 00:19:51

and break his or her bone.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

So this is serious. And this goes to both brothers and sisters. So before we exempt ourselves

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

We listen to those who say, Oh no, you don't have to pay zakat on this or that. People will just give free footwear who are not qualified. Be careful. This is your Acura. You're allowing someone to mess with. This is your Acura, you're messing with sisters before someone comes to you and says, Oh no, no, you don't have to pay the car on your on that set of gold.

00:20:22--> 00:20:34

Really 500 grams of gold. You don't have to pay zakat on it sitting there. You have not used it for the past. You know, 10 years since you got married. You don't have to pay zakat. The prophet SAW Selim said to Arusha

00:20:35--> 00:20:53

he said, he saw a bracelet on her arm on her hand, and he said on her wrist and he said, I should you pay those account that? She said, No. He said, What is this? First of all, he said, he said, Oh, I bought it and you know, just to say, you know, that could be him.

00:20:55--> 00:20:57

Um, wearing it for you on messenger of Allah.

00:20:59--> 00:21:01

He said, do you pay soccer?

00:21:02--> 00:21:03

She said,

00:21:04--> 00:21:16

there is a car. I didn't know this was liable. You know? That. He said you have to pay soccer for you. Otherwise Allah subhanaw taala will turn it into a bracelet of fire on the Day of Judgment.

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

This is serious.

00:21:20--> 00:21:23

This is serious. So find out for your own Deen

00:21:24--> 00:21:25

for your own Deen.

00:21:26--> 00:21:54

There are so many blessings that come with the car. So remember, brothers and sisters were supposed to deliver the car. Now, let me just conclude by saying many people don't even understand the words of cat stuff. A lot of times we say Oh, it's a cat. Yeah, charity, arms giving. The word literally was carefully chosen by a loss of Hannah with Allah. The word was chosen by Allah subhanaw taala. Even the term itself is a noble

00:21:57--> 00:21:59

term. The cat brothers and sisters

00:22:01--> 00:22:04

means two things literally, literally it means two things.

00:22:05--> 00:22:09

It means growth and number or zyada.

00:22:10--> 00:22:19

Growth when something is elevated, or when something grows when something goes high growth. That's what it means the cat

00:22:20--> 00:22:23

and the other meaning of the cat is purification.

00:22:25--> 00:22:35

Purity or purification. Please brothers move forward do not block the interest, filling all the gaps vada low FICO and a squeeze in particular if you complete and do not block the interest,

00:22:38--> 00:22:39

growth

00:22:40--> 00:22:51

and purification both of which are basic human need. Growth brothers, this is easy enough. In fact, one of the things that distinguish living beings is that they grow.

00:22:53--> 00:22:57

And what I tell people the day you stop giving Zakat, or realizing the importance

00:22:59--> 00:23:02

and the significance of the car, that's the day you stop growing.

00:23:06--> 00:23:09

And the day you stop understanding

00:23:10--> 00:23:18

the process of Zika and neglect it and withhold that's the day you stop your purification

00:23:20--> 00:23:41

and that's the day you start piling up filth and and by the way, the longer the person waits and the harder it becomes. Why? Because there is a buildup of filth, buildup of darkness on the heart that the heart is not responding. calls for a second people. You know what I call it a leveler.

00:23:43--> 00:24:03

Beware that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that do not wait until the moment of death comes and when your soul reaches your throat and you're about to die. You say oh, I owe this machine I owe that much. Do it before it's too late. I asked a lot so just to make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of where they listen to

00:24:06--> 00:24:09

a whole lot of code or software Allah Holly welcome. First of all, we're felucca.

00:24:16--> 00:24:19

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah

00:24:22--> 00:24:27

wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah He was so happy to meet the

00:24:28--> 00:24:41

My dear brothers and sisters. Simply we owe Allah subhanho wa Taala and we owe eight categories of recipients as Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran,

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

two and a half percent

00:24:46--> 00:24:55

of a wealth, the type of wealth that is liable to occur gold, silver or currency

00:24:56--> 00:24:58

if it reaches what is known

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

As you saw in this lab is baseline

00:25:05--> 00:25:12

is the minimum amount that you have to have in order for that wealth to become liable to the car.

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

And when we do the conversion

00:25:18--> 00:25:21

right it could be depending on the

00:25:22--> 00:25:30

price of gold or silver, it could be anywhere from 20 $500 all the way to three or even $4,000.

00:25:32--> 00:25:39

So, if you have that for a whole for an entire year, what is known as hell

00:25:40--> 00:25:45

keeping in mind that the year that we're talking about is the lunar year

00:25:46--> 00:25:50

which is about 11 days

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

shorter than the solar Common Era Gregorian here

00:25:58--> 00:26:18

so shifts right and that's why many Muslims take the month of Ramadan since the month of Ramadan is the the one month that we all track and we're well aware of its presence many people use the month of Ramadan as the cutoff date or the cutoff time or season to pay there is a cut

00:26:20--> 00:26:25

now however if the card is due before the month of Ramadan

00:26:28--> 00:26:45

some people on the you know they have this understanding that because of the month of Ramadan they believe in the month of Ramadan these are multiply so therefore they wait Don't wait. First of all, there's no evidence that these will be multiplied in the month of Ramadan they will be blessed the quality of the deed is better.

00:26:47--> 00:26:55

But it's there's no evidence that the dollar that you give in the month of Ramadan, right, it's something that you're going to get more reward for

00:26:56--> 00:26:57

if you give it outside Ramadan.

00:27:00--> 00:27:01

Besides the cat

00:27:03--> 00:27:15

is mandatory, it's an obligatory act. So you have to deliver it and you have to pay it when it's due as soon as it's due. And the reason I'm saying this is because imagine that you earned or that you received

00:27:18--> 00:27:22

some kind of capital $100,000

00:27:24--> 00:27:29

right let's say six months ago, six months ago

00:27:31--> 00:27:31

right

00:27:33--> 00:27:37

or let's say you received it you know even way before that

00:27:38--> 00:27:48

you can say well it's not a year yet so this one I'm Hold on I'm not I'm not gonna pay zakat on it and I'm gonna wait another year after this one I'm hold on until next time hold on No,

00:27:49--> 00:27:52

you have to pay that that is a coward that particular amount

00:27:53--> 00:27:58

exactly a year after you have you are able to acquire it.

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

So a year later so make sure that you pay your as a car wants to do as for the common individual that has bank accounts and you know revolving and they have basically investments and they have other assets.

00:28:17--> 00:28:19

You can set a date for yourself

00:28:20--> 00:28:33

and use that day as your cutoff day and every year pay your is a calendar that on that day do your calculation if you need any help and show $1 you can ask me inshallah to Allah or to even have a learner inshallah we'll be able to assist you and help you.

00:28:36--> 00:28:45

Another piece of information that is very important. People have these, these idea, oh 401 K, there's no Zakat on that so you don't have to worry about it. Who said that?

00:28:47--> 00:28:54

So ask for the specifics and seek federa you don't want to come on the Day of Judgment owing a loss of Hannah Watada anything.

00:28:57--> 00:29:10

Brothers and sisters, let it be known that Allah subhana wa tada made that amount, something that belongs to a specific group of recipients. It is there.

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

It is there right. When we hold it. It doesn't belong to us.

00:29:16--> 00:29:28

When we hold it, it becomes toxic, cancerous, that portion will ruin the entire wealth. And if it doesn't ruin the wealth, it will ruin the individual spiritually.

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

So be careful. And bear in mind

00:29:33--> 00:29:40

as some of them said no one is starves to death except someone else's responsible for that.

00:29:41--> 00:29:45

Someone wants a llama responding for someone who's starving to death. If you do not pay you as a cow you are

00:29:47--> 00:29:51

no one loses his or her house and there they go homeless.

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

Right, except that someone wealthy is responsible because they did not pay their dues.

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

So we are responsible for the suffering of so many people out there if we're not paying our Sekai want us to feel that

00:30:09--> 00:30:16

and remember that when you withhold yours a cat, you are responsible, you're causing someone to suffer.

00:30:18--> 00:30:20

You're causing someone to suffer.

00:30:22--> 00:30:24

And you don't know who that individual is.

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

So let us feel a loss of Hannah hola to Allah.

00:30:28--> 00:30:31

For Allah subhanaw taala watches what we do.

00:30:32--> 00:30:44

Brothers and sisters, there are many researchers that concluded they said if the Muslims, if the Muslims took care of the two and a half percent of the Muslims will fill there is a cat obligation.

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

They would be able to wipe out poverty

00:30:51--> 00:30:58

within the Muslim community. And when I did a little research of my own little research, again, don't come and hold me and say okay, prove it.

00:30:59--> 00:31:03

Nothing very science, scientific or, or

00:31:04--> 00:31:29

nothing very sophisticated. Just simple. Research. Will law II brothers and sisters, if not within a year, but within the years, if Muslims whom Allah Subhana Allah has blessed with so much wealth, never has the Muslims have the Muslims been as wealthy as we are today. If the Muslims take care of them as a cow, we will wipe out poverty of the face of this planet.

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

If we take care of ours, okay, and that's why we're responsible. And don't say, well, am I is that guys only $100? Or like $200? Yes. $200 there are people in the world living

00:31:45--> 00:31:51

for $2 under $2 a day, half of the world's population brothers and sisters.

00:31:52--> 00:31:53

They live

00:31:54--> 00:32:02

for they live for $2 a day. That's it. That's That's it? Can you imagine $2 That's it, that's their expense.

00:32:03--> 00:32:05

60 bucks a month.

00:32:07--> 00:32:08

That's all they have

00:32:09--> 00:32:19

60 bucks. So if you've got 60 bucks, that's someone's income for a whole month, one individual and we're depriving people from their health.

00:32:21--> 00:32:22

So we need to be aware of this.

00:32:24--> 00:32:27

And we need to understand that is a serious issue.

00:32:28--> 00:33:11

Brothers and sisters, let me also say that Allah subhanho wa Taala has encouraged us in the Quran to give to give beyond this occur. And bear in mind that the car by the way, according to the roadmap to the majority of the animals, a cow has to be dispensed and distributed locally. For the province instead of sending the Hadith to Holloman Alinea aim for Torah to Allah, Allah am sending your as a cow overseas has to be done under certain circumstances. And it is really, in my opinion, a power that is given to the leadership of the Muslim community to assess the situation. So the least you should do is seek fatwa and say, Okay, this is these are the conditions. And I feel like I need to.

00:33:11--> 00:33:15

So do you think that it's okay for me to send my Zakah elsewhere?

00:33:18--> 00:33:36

I was one time about to actually, you know, even call family and tell them by the way, one of the best organizations that I that I dealt with, that takes care of the cat and handles it properly is this message so I want you to send me yours, okay. Then I remembered that they Oh, there is a cat with their own community to their own localities.

00:33:37--> 00:33:41

Those who in Ohio, they need to take care of it there.

00:33:42--> 00:33:43

And I stopped.

00:33:45--> 00:33:47

So the care has to be paid locally.

00:33:49--> 00:34:01

And if and in every community, there are people who are wealthy that are lost, somehow Allah has blessed and other people that may not be as fortunate. So the wealthy are supposed to take care of their poor.

00:34:05--> 00:34:06

So

00:34:07--> 00:34:29

let us brothers and sisters pay attention to this. And let us commit today that from now on the cause is going to be an essential part of our practice of Islam. And that we're going to calculate it accurately and diligently and take care of it. Let us if we have any past due Zakat, take care of it immediately ASAP, before death comes upon us.

00:34:30--> 00:34:36

Let us from now on realize that our wealth belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:34:37--> 00:34:38

And when we understand this,

00:34:40--> 00:34:50

and do whatever Allah Subhana Allah commanded us to do then Allah subhanaw taala will bless us and bless that wealth and when we withhold the loss of habitat is going to withhold his velyka

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

let us brothers and sisters remember that if we don't take care of it today, we shall indeed face

00:35:00--> 00:35:17

A huge and serious and severe trial and punishment on the Day of Resurrection, where the prosecution is going to be the divine. And the witnesses are going to be the angels. And the supporting witnesses are going to be the poor and the needy that we deprived.

00:35:19--> 00:35:20

Were the case

00:35:21--> 00:35:24

has already been made by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:35:26--> 00:35:28

I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:35:29--> 00:35:31

to bring us back

00:35:32--> 00:35:46

to the right path, and keep us on the straight path until the Day of Resurrection. Finally, brothers and sisters, I want to say that not too long ago, I was getting another message, a message that is doing so much for its community.

00:35:48--> 00:35:55

But people there were struggling, convincing the members of that congregation to take care of the needs of the machine.

00:35:56--> 00:36:02

And I said, so how long what happened to us what happened to that sense of, of moral obligation.

00:36:04--> 00:36:07

When a Masjid opens its doors

00:36:09--> 00:36:10

for the community for everyone.

00:36:13--> 00:36:29

Especially during the month of Ramadan, five times AC blasting, throughout the entire day, lights are on, for people to come in and read and write. water usage basically increases

00:36:30--> 00:36:34

if bar every weekend or on a daily basis in some communities,

00:36:35--> 00:36:37

all of that comes with expenses.

00:36:39--> 00:36:40

Somebody has to pay for it.

00:36:42--> 00:36:43

And I refuse

00:36:44--> 00:36:45

to have someone pay for me.

00:36:46--> 00:36:51

You should not have someone pay for your rabada for you to fulfill your rate. But

00:36:52--> 00:36:54

we're not living here in countries where there is

00:36:56--> 00:37:00

there's a department or a ministry that is taking care of them massage it.

00:37:01--> 00:37:24

These massage do not belong to wealthy families or individuals that are taking care of everything. And and even if that's the case, we still have to support the motion. No, this is it. This is our place. This is our haven. This is our cave. This is our whatever you want to call this is your shelter. This is your spiritual shelter. This is your spiritual domain. This is your spiritual platform.

00:37:26--> 00:37:31

And we have to take care of it more than we take care of our own households because this is the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:37:33--> 00:37:36

So we have to feel responsible.

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

We have to feel responsible.

00:37:43--> 00:37:53

So brothers and sisters, let us figure it out on our own. You don't have to have someone come to you and say the message needs 123 we have to come and say what does the masjid need.

00:37:54--> 00:37:59

And bear in mind that this is an opportunity for us. We're lucky it is an opportunity for us.

00:38:00--> 00:38:10

It is an opportunity for us for a loss of dialysis in a model massage de la human. I'm Anna Bella Julio mil F. It is only those

00:38:11--> 00:38:54

who believe in a line the last day and the promise of Allah azza wa jal of the last day that take care and maintain the massage of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah azza wa jal make you nine of those who maintain and take care of the massages of a loss of vision. And may Allah will just take care of whatever needs we have. I asked a lot, I cannot take care of my household I asked a lot to take care of my household. The deal is that I will take care of the house of Allah. So Allah and you'll be my witness. I shall take care of your house, or Allah take care of my household, bless my family, and bless the families of every individual in this congregation. Allah protect us and bless

00:38:54--> 00:39:08

us and guidance or law, except our deeds and forgive our sins or love except that we're fasting in our offerings in our prayers, or law. Do not deprive us and forgive our sins and our shortcomings.

00:39:09--> 00:39:14

The law in the law what the law says anyway at the photo and share it with

00:39:18--> 00:39:33

me is it what are they called Allahu Akbar Allahu Allah will notice that on the cotton filter, and Zakat and the video is $10. This year, the boxes will be out there for you and shout out and as soon as they're out there, please start taking care of that dark Hello, do you want to

00:39:35--> 00:39:38

be my female with Declan hakima como la sala Chico

00:39:43--> 00:39:51

this sense of moral obligation that we have, because a lot of times people think that Oh, what's the big deal?

00:39:52--> 00:39:53

No, there is an ethical dimension to it.

00:39:56--> 00:39:58

And one should feel ashamed of himself.

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

Realize

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

This is this goes beyond just calculating two and a half percent and just giving it to someone to take care of it for you.

00:40:10--> 00:40:11

Number three,

00:40:12--> 00:40:14

get us inshallah to Allah to commit

00:40:15--> 00:40:16

to be a community

00:40:18--> 00:40:21

that fulfills its DACA

00:40:23--> 00:40:25

does its Zakah

00:40:26--> 00:40:39

engages in Zika delivers Zika pays, the cap gives the cap and believe it or not, all these terms are used in reference to the cut.

00:40:41--> 00:41:02

Because sometimes we will think that as a guide is just something that you just give or just throw away know, Allah subhanaw taala says, Those who deliver Zakah those who give zakah those who share the cap, those who pay there is a cap and in a in one particular ayah Allah says what levied on Homeland Security

00:41:03--> 00:41:21

and those who do the cap, the cap is an action that is not simply something that you just calculate, and then you pay. No, it is something that you do. It's an action. It is something that you engage in. It is a process that is bigger than than many of us

00:41:22--> 00:41:24

make it to seem to be

00:41:25--> 00:41:30

zakat. Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu was forced to go to war

00:41:31--> 00:41:38

with the majority of the Muslim community because they withheld the cat, the majority of the Muslim community,

00:41:39--> 00:41:49

they actually left Islam because they dropped the cat. they conspired to withhold soccer or to abolish the ACA.

00:41:51--> 00:41:54

And everyone says in history there is consensus.

00:41:55--> 00:42:04

There is consensus from the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam amongst the companions, and those who follow them, that the Muslim community

00:42:05--> 00:42:11

owes Abu Bakar radi Allahu anhu for making that brave decision.

00:42:12--> 00:42:39

He even said that I will go to war even if I have to fight them by myself. When some of the companions like Tom and others were hesitant, they said, how could we fight fight them? They're the majority enough night maybe I would comfortably say maybe 90% 90% of the Muslim population left Islam. You know, why? Not? Because they no longer believes the Prophet Muhammad SAW send them was a prophet or because they denied the loss of Hannah hautala

00:42:41--> 00:43:01

Initially, it was mainly because they decided not to pay zakat is a class that was done. We used to always occur to Mohammed salallahu alayhi wasallam now that he had passed away, we don't always look at you. No, we're not gonna give it to to anyone that's they withheld Zika This is how serious this issue is.

00:43:03--> 00:43:05

I woke up said I'm going to work.

00:43:07--> 00:43:14

model the lawn said what are you doing? How could you go to work? I mean, they say Lie, lie, lie lie. They pray. They used to pray five times.

00:43:15--> 00:43:27

They pray and they're going to do other things. So can we just he said law a law? No, Caitlyn number four rabina Salatu was occur. I will indeed fight

00:43:28--> 00:43:30

in wage war against those who

00:43:31--> 00:43:34

distinguish or separates a calf from Salah.

00:43:36--> 00:43:40

Can you imagine a Muslim community Imagine if the community decided to shut the machine down

00:43:42--> 00:43:44

and abolish or cancel salaat

00:43:46--> 00:44:04

we cannot cancel one Salah let alone cancel. Also, let's imagine what will happen here if we decide to to say all Muslim community in America were so busy let us just abolish Juma no more Juma people will be up in arms right there will be an uproar here.

00:44:05--> 00:44:14

Can you imagine if I stood on this member or if I stand on this member and I come and I tell you Okay, from now on, you no longer have to

00:44:15--> 00:44:16

pray Juma

00:44:19--> 00:44:20

Zakat

00:44:23--> 00:44:25

what happened to the Muslim Ummah?

00:44:29--> 00:44:33

You know, the majority of those people who memorize the Quran died because of these wars.

00:44:36--> 00:44:41

The so called civil war that occurred. The majority of those who memorize the Quran were slain.

00:44:43--> 00:44:46

Great companions like Abu hanifa

00:44:47--> 00:44:48

have an article

00:44:50--> 00:44:51

zeytinburnu hapa,

00:44:52--> 00:44:54

who accepted Islam before Amaro de la

00:44:55--> 00:44:56

serie de

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

Salud. Mona Eva. Great

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

names were killed.

00:45:04--> 00:45:10

Abu Bakar deployed armies sent them to various parts. One under the leadership of

00:45:12--> 00:45:31

a live Navy pilot. Another one under the leadership of Abu Dhabi, another one under the leadership of cardinalis. Another one under the leadership of Nkrumah to the various parts, there were fewer and number, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in turn, until they were able to bring back the oma into the fold of Islam.

00:45:32--> 00:45:36

Had it not been By the way, had it not been for that decision?

00:45:39--> 00:45:48

We you and I probably would have not been Muslims today, Islam would have would have ended as we know it. It's a cat. This is because of the cat.

00:45:49--> 00:45:54

Yet, it is one of the most neglected Pillars of Islam.

00:45:55--> 00:45:56

People take it lightly.

00:45:58--> 00:46:05

In fact, there are some people who may be even bothered by it. They wish that Allah subhanaw taala did not even reveal

00:46:07--> 00:46:18

legislation in which the cut is made mandatory. Like oh, why do we have we were paying so many things, we have so many financial obligations to Panama? Appala?

00:46:19--> 00:46:30

What if we weren't like some other nations or some other that have to pay 10% of their of their growth? income, not even saving income?

00:46:31--> 00:46:36

What if I come and I tell you, you have to pay 20% of your gross income?

00:46:38--> 00:46:40

Two and a half, two and a half percent?

00:46:42--> 00:46:43

And just because

00:46:44--> 00:46:51

there there is no, we don't have a treasury department that is gonna go after us. Because we're not fulfilling there is a cat obligation.

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

Right?

00:46:55--> 00:46:57

Many people take their taxes seriously, but it's a cut.

00:46:59--> 00:47:08

And they say, Well, I'm paying taxes, you know, isn't that does that exempt me from having to pay zakat somehow it's the other way around. In fact, you will get tax exemption if you pay your zakat.

00:47:11--> 00:47:15

Even Obama knows how important it is. How many times does he bring it up?

00:47:16--> 00:47:18

Whenever he addresses the Muslims?

00:47:21--> 00:47:23

It is important you get tax exemption

00:47:25--> 00:47:26

two and a half percent

00:47:27--> 00:47:31

of whatever amount of money exceeds

00:47:32--> 00:47:33

particular amount

00:47:35--> 00:47:54

$3,000, something around that range based on the price of gold. Right? If you have that much for a whole year, or you have more than that two and a half percent, that's what you owe. Someone might say, wait a minute, does that mean that I may have to basically sell some of my, you know, solid assets? Or

00:47:55--> 00:47:57

do I have to liquidate? Yeah, if you have to.

00:47:59--> 00:48:08

You're not going to tell the IRS if you owe them money that Oh, do I have to liquidate? Yeah, you have to bet you have to liquidate This is how the lawyers have handled wattana.

00:48:09--> 00:48:17

And by the way, those of us who think that Well, I have not really been taking myself seriously, I'm, I'm fine, I'm blessed. Maybe it's not that important. You think so.

00:48:19--> 00:48:25

You know, when people evade taxes, and the government finds out, they let them do it for for few years.

00:48:26--> 00:48:28

And in the process, they're building a case against them.

00:48:30--> 00:48:36

So those of us who are neglecting the kind of think that they are they can get away with it. Allah is building a case against you.

00:48:38--> 00:48:46

Allies building a case against you and there will be a day of judgment. And on that day, no one will be able to bring

00:48:47--> 00:49:07

lawyers or people that will help him find some some kind of loopholes and and try to reduce the sentence level Allah. Allah subhana wa tada says, yo yo ma Allah hi fi nadie Johanna, the wealth of that individual that deprives people from there is a cap.

00:49:08--> 00:49:15

The person that withholds the kind of loss of habitat it says their wealth will be brought and turned into plates of gold and silver.

00:49:17--> 00:49:24

plates of gold and silver. Your family has Inari Johanna minute will be heated in the health and the Hellfire

00:49:25--> 00:49:29

for two quite big bear What do you know about him

00:49:32--> 00:49:38

and their foreheads, their sides and their backs will be branded

00:49:40--> 00:49:44

and heated and burnt with those plates.

00:49:45--> 00:49:56

Have a mechanism to really emphasize them. This is what you withheld for yourself. This is what you were thinking that you are saving. Here it is. Take it the person will be buried

00:49:57--> 00:49:58

in their wealth.

00:50:00--> 00:50:16

They will drown in their wealth they will suffocate in their wealth on the Day of Judgment, and those who will hold Zakah. With regards to capitals the prophet SAW Selim says that Allah will bring these capitals in these capitals will step and bite that individual

00:50:17--> 00:50:19

and break his or her bone.

00:50:21--> 00:50:49

So this is serious. And this goes to both brothers and sisters. So before we exempt ourselves or we listen to those who say, Oh no, you don't have to pay zakat on this or that. People will just give free footwear who are not qualified. Be careful. This is your Acura. You're allowing someone to mess with? This is your Acura, you're messing with sisters before someone comes to you and says, Oh, no, no, you don't have to paint the car on your on that set of gold.

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

Really 500 grams of gold. You don't have to pay zakat on it sitting there. You have not used it for the past, you know, 10 years since you got married. You don't have to pay the car. The problem. So I sent him said to Arusha.

00:51:03--> 00:51:21

He said, he saw a bracelet on her arm on her head. And he said on her wrist and he said I should you pay for the car that? She said no. He said, What is this? Ayesha? First of all, he said, he said, Oh, I bought it. And you know, just to say you don't look at me when

00:51:22--> 00:51:25

I'm wearing it for you on messenger of Allah.

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

He said, do you pay Sokka?

00:51:30--> 00:51:30

She said,

00:51:32--> 00:51:44

there is a car. I didn't know this was liable, you know that. He said you have to pay the curfew. Otherwise, Allah subhanaw taala will turn it into a bracelet of fire on the Day of Judgment.

00:51:45--> 00:51:46

This is serious.

00:51:47--> 00:51:50

This is serious. So find out for your own Dean.

00:51:52--> 00:51:53

For your own Dean.

00:51:54--> 00:52:22

There are so many blessings that come with a car. So remember, brothers and sisters were supposed to deliver as a car. Now, let me just conclude by saying many people don't even understand the words a cat. So a lot of times we say Oh, it's a cat. Yeah, charity, arms giving. The word literally was carefully chosen by Allah subhanho wa Taala. The word was chosen by Allah subhanaw taala even the term itself is a noble

00:52:24--> 00:52:27

term is a cat brothers and sisters.

00:52:29--> 00:52:32

means two things literally, literally it means two things.

00:52:33--> 00:52:37

It means growth and number or zyada.

00:52:38--> 00:52:47

Growth when something is elevated, or when something grows when something goes high growth. That's what it means the cat

00:52:48--> 00:52:51

and the other meaning of the cat is purification.

00:52:52--> 00:53:03

Purity or purification, please brothers move forward do not block the interest, filling all the gaps vada low FICO and squeezing barakallahu complete and do not block the interest.

00:53:06--> 00:53:06

Growth

00:53:08--> 00:53:19

and purification both of which are basic human need. Growth brothers, this is easy enough. In fact, one of the things that distinguish living beings is that the girl

00:53:21--> 00:53:25

and what I tell people the day you stop giving the cow or realizing the importance

00:53:26--> 00:53:29

and the significance of the car that's the day you stop growing.

00:53:34--> 00:53:37

And the day you stop understanding

00:53:38--> 00:53:46

the process of zaca and neglected and withhold that's the day you stopped your purification

00:53:47--> 00:54:09

and that's the day you start piling up filth and and by the way, the longer the person waits and the harder it becomes. Why? Because there is a buildup of filth, buildup of darkness on the heart that the heart is not responding. calls for is the kind people you know. How would I call it a leveler?

00:54:11--> 00:54:31

Beware that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that do not wait until the moment of death comes. And when your soul reaches your throat and you're about to die. You say oh, I owe this machine I owe that much. Do it before it's too late. I asked a lot so just to make you an AI of those who listen and follow the best of where they listened to.

00:54:33--> 00:54:36

A Hola Hola, como sobre la Hollywood aka sulfuryl

00:54:44--> 00:54:54

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Hamdan kathira eva Moroccan fee. Well, Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah He will be here wondering why that

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

regard My dear brothers and sisters simply

00:55:00--> 00:55:09

We owe Allah subhanho wa Taala and we owe eight categories of recipients as a loss of Hannah with Allah mentioned in the Quran

00:55:11--> 00:55:12

two and a half percent

00:55:14--> 00:55:23

of a wealth the type of wealth that is liable to the cat gold, silver or currency

00:55:24--> 00:55:26

if it reaches what is known

00:55:28--> 00:55:32

as nice law and this law is baseline

00:55:33--> 00:55:39

is the minimum amount that you have to have in order for that wealth to become liable to the car

00:55:43--> 00:55:45

and when we do the conversion

00:55:46--> 00:55:49

right it could be depending on the

00:55:50--> 00:55:58

price of gold or silver it could be anywhere from 20 $500 all the way to three or even $4,000

00:56:00--> 00:56:06

So, if you have that for a whole for an entire year what is known as hell

00:56:08--> 00:56:12

keeping in mind that the year that we're talking about is the lunar year

00:56:14--> 00:56:18

which is about 11 days

00:56:20--> 00:56:25

shorter than the solar Common Era Gregorian here

00:56:26--> 00:56:46

so shifts right and that's why many Muslims take the month of Ramadan since the month of Ramadan is the the one month that we all track and we're well aware of its presence many people use the month of Ramadan as the cutoff date or the cutoff time or season to pay there is a cut

00:56:48--> 00:56:52

now however if the car is due before the month of Ramadan

00:56:55--> 00:57:13

some people on the you know they have this understanding that because in the month of Ramadan they believe in the month of Ramadan these are multiply so therefore they wait Don't wait. First of all, there's no evidence that these will be multiplied in the month of Ramadan they will be blessed the quality of the deed is better.

00:57:15--> 00:57:23

But it's there's no evidence that the dollar that you give in the month of Ramadan, right it's something that you're going to get more reward for

00:57:24--> 00:57:25

if you give it outside Armada

00:57:27--> 00:57:29

besides the cat

00:57:30--> 00:57:43

is mandatory, it's an obligatory act. So you have to deliver it and you have to pay it when it's due as soon as it's due. And the reason I'm saying this is because imagine that you earned or that you received

00:57:45--> 00:57:49

some kind of capital $100,000

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

right let's say six months ago, six months ago

00:57:59--> 00:57:59

right

00:58:01--> 00:58:05

or let's say you received it you know even way before that

00:58:06--> 00:58:15

you can say well it's not a year yet so this one I'm Hold on I'm not I'm not gonna pay zakat on it and I'm gonna wait another year after this one I'm hold on until next time hold on No,

00:58:17--> 00:58:20

you have to pay that that is a car of that particular amount

00:58:21--> 00:58:26

exactly a year after you have you are able to acquire it

00:58:28--> 00:58:44

so a year later so make sure that you pay your as a car when it's due as for the common individual that has bank accounts and you know revolving and they have basically investments and they have other assets.

00:58:45--> 00:58:47

You can set a day for yourself

00:58:48--> 00:59:01

and use that day as your cutoff day and every year pay yours accounts. On that day do your calculation if you need any help inshallah Allah you can ask me inshallah, to Allah or even helpful learner inshallah we'll be able to assist you and help you.

00:59:03--> 00:59:13

Another piece of information that is very important. People have these, these idea, oh 401 K, there is no Zakat on that so you don't have to worry about it. Who said that?

00:59:15--> 00:59:22

So ask for the specifics and seek federa you don't want to come on the Day of Judgment owing Allah subhana wa Taala anything.

00:59:25--> 00:59:37

Brothers and sisters, let it be known that Allah subhanho wa Taala made that amount, something that belongs to a specific group of recipients. It is there.

00:59:38--> 00:59:43

It is there right. When we hold it, it doesn't belong to us.

00:59:44--> 00:59:56

When we hold it, it becomes toxic, cancerous, that portion will ruin the entire wealth. And if it doesn't ruin the wealth, it will ruin the individual spiritually.

00:59:57--> 00:59:59

So be careful and bear

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

Mind,

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

as some of the earlier Matt said, No one is starves to death, except someone else is responsible for that.

01:00:09--> 01:00:13

Someone might say, Well, I'm responding for someone who's starving to death, if you do not pay you as a cow you are.

01:00:15--> 01:00:19

No one loses his or her house and there they go homeless.

01:00:20--> 01:00:34

Right? Except that someone wealthy is responsible, because they did not pay their dues. So we are responsible for the suffering of so many people out there. If we're not paying ours, I want us to feel that.

01:00:37--> 01:00:43

And remember that when you withhold your as a cat, you are responsible, you're causing someone to suffer.

01:00:46--> 01:00:48

You're causing someone to suffer.

01:00:49--> 01:00:51

And you don't know who that individual is.

01:00:52--> 01:00:55

So let us feel a loss of Hannah hautala.

01:00:56--> 01:00:58

For Allah subhanaw taala watches what we do.

01:01:00--> 01:01:12

Brothers and sisters, there are many researchers that concluded they said if the Muslims, if the Muslims took care of the two and a half percent, if the Muslims will fill there is a cat obligation.

01:01:14--> 01:01:17

They would be able to wipe out poverty

01:01:18--> 01:01:25

within the Muslim community. And when I did a little research of my own little research, again, don't come and hold me and say okay, prove it.

01:01:27--> 01:01:30

Nothing, very science, scientific or order.

01:01:31--> 01:01:57

Sub nothing very sophisticated. Just simple research, when law II brothers and sisters, if not within a year, but within a years, if Muslims, whom Allah Subhana Allah has blessed with so much wealth, never has the Muslims, have the Muslims been as wealthy as we are today. If the Muslims take care of their account, we will wipe out poverty of the face of this planet.

01:01:58--> 01:02:10

If we take care of our Zika and that's why we're responsible. And don't say, well, am I is that guys only $100? Or $200? Yes. $200. There are people in the world living

01:02:13--> 01:02:18

for $2 under $2 a day, half of the world's population brothers and sisters.

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

They live

01:02:22--> 01:02:30

for they live for $2 a day. That's it. That's that's it too dark. Can you imagine $2 That's it, that's their expense.

01:02:31--> 01:02:33

60 bucks a month.

01:02:35--> 01:02:36

That's all they have

01:02:37--> 01:02:47

60 bucks. So if you've got 60 bucks, that's someone's income for a whole month, one individual, and we're depriving people from their health.

01:02:49--> 01:02:50

So we need to be aware of this.

01:02:51--> 01:02:54

And we need to understand that it's a serious issue.

01:02:55--> 01:03:40

Brothers and sisters, let me also say that Allah subhanho wa Taala has encouraged us to give to give beyond this occur. And bear in mind that the car by the way, according to the roadmap to the majority of the unimat as a car has to be dispensed and distributed locally. For the province instead of setting the Hadees to Holloman Alinea aim for Torah to Allah, Allah him sending us a cow overseas has to be done under certain circumstances. And it is really, in my opinion, a power that is given to the leadership of the Muslim community to assess the situation. So the least you should do is seek fatwa and say, Okay, this is these are the conditions, and I feel like I need to. So do

01:03:40--> 01:03:43

you think that it's okay for me to send my Zika elsewhere?

01:03:46--> 01:04:04

I was one time about to actually, you know, even called family and tell them by the way, one of the best organizations that I that I dealt with, that takes care of the can handles it properly is this message so I want you to send me yours, okay. Then I remembered that they Oh, there is a country, their own community to their own localities.

01:04:05--> 01:04:08

Those in Ohio, they need to take care of it there.

01:04:10--> 01:04:10

And I stopped.

01:04:13--> 01:04:15

So the cat has to be paid locally.

01:04:17--> 01:04:29

And in every community, there are people who are wealthy that are lost, what Allah has blessed and other people that may not be as fortunate. So the wealthy are supposed to take care of their poor.

01:04:33--> 01:04:34

So

01:04:35--> 01:04:57

let us brothers and sisters pay attention to this. And let us commit today that from now on, the cost is going to be an essential part of our practice of Islam, and that we're going to calculate it accurately and diligently and take care of it. Let us if we have any past due Zakat, take care of it immediately ASAP, before death comes upon us.

01:04:58--> 01:04:59

Let us from now on

01:05:00--> 01:05:04

Realize that our wealth belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:05:05--> 01:05:06

And when we understand this,

01:05:07--> 01:05:18

and do whatever Allah Subhana Allah commanded us to do, then Allah subhanaw taala will bless us and bless that wealth. And when we withhold the loss of habitat is going to withhold his velyka.

01:05:19--> 01:05:27

Let us brothers and sisters, remember that, if we don't take care of it today, we shall indeed face

01:05:28--> 01:05:45

a huge and serious and severe trial and punishment on the Day of Resurrection, where the prosecution is going to be the divine, and the witnesses are going to be the angels. And the supporting witnesses are going to be the poor and the needy that we deprived

01:05:47--> 01:05:48

where the case

01:05:49--> 01:05:52

has already been made by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

01:05:54--> 01:05:56

I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala

01:05:57--> 01:05:59

to bring us back

01:06:00--> 01:06:14

to the right path, and keep us on the straight path until the Day of Resurrection. Finally, brothers and sisters, I want to say that not too long ago, I was in another machine, a machine that is doing so much for its community.

01:06:16--> 01:06:22

But people there were struggling, convincing the members of that congregation to take care of the needs of the machine.

01:06:24--> 01:06:30

And I said some Hello What happened to us what happened to that sense of, of moral obligation.

01:06:31--> 01:06:35

When a Masjid opens its doors

01:06:36--> 01:06:38

for the community for everyone.

01:06:41--> 01:06:56

Especially during the month of Ramadan, five times AC blasting, throughout the entire day, lights are on, for people to come in and read for and write, water usage basically increases

01:06:57--> 01:07:02

if bar every weekend or on a daily basis in some communities,

01:07:03--> 01:07:05

all of that comes with expenses.

01:07:06--> 01:07:08

Somebody has to pay for it.

01:07:10--> 01:07:10

And I refuse

01:07:12--> 01:07:13

to have someone pay for me.

01:07:14--> 01:07:19

You should not have someone pay for you or a bad for you to fulfill your right but

01:07:20--> 01:07:22

we're not living here in countries where there is

01:07:24--> 01:07:28

there is a department or a ministry that is taking care of the massage.

01:07:29--> 01:07:52

These massage do not belong to wealthy families or individuals that are taking care of everything. And and even if that's the case, we still have to support the motion. No, this is it. This is our place. This is our haven. This is our cave. This is our whatever you want to call this is your shelter. This is your spiritual shelter. This is your spiritual domain. This is your spiritual platform.

01:07:54--> 01:07:59

And we have to take care of it more than we take care of our own households because this is the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:08:01--> 01:08:04

So we have to feel responsible.

01:08:05--> 01:08:07

We have to feel responsible.

01:08:11--> 01:08:21

So brothers and sisters, let us figure it out on our own. You don't have to have someone come to you and say the message needs 123 we have to come and say what does the mustard need.

01:08:22--> 01:08:27

And bear in mind that this is an opportunity for us? Well llahi it is an opportunity for us.

01:08:28--> 01:08:38

It is an opportunity for us for a loss of what Allah says in Namibia, our model massager de la him and I'm going to belabor The Omen if it is only those

01:08:39--> 01:09:23

who believe in a law in the last day and the promise of a law so agenda of the last day that take care and maintain the massage of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah azza wa jal make you and I have those who maintain and take care of the massages of alized women and male allies, we just take care of whatever needs we have. I asked a lot. I cannot take care of my household I asked a lot to take care of my household. The deal is that I will take care of the house of Allah. So Allah and you'll be my witness. I shall take care of your house or Allah take care of my household, bless my family, and bless the families of every individual in this congregation. Or Allah protect us and bless us

01:09:23--> 01:09:36

and guide us. Allah, accept our deeds and forgive our sins, Oh Allah, except our fasting and our offerings in our prayers, or law do not deprive us of forgive our sins and our shortcomings.

01:09:37--> 01:09:41

The law in the law what the law says Anyway, you take the photo and hand it

01:09:43--> 01:09:45

to the court of law.

01:09:47--> 01:10:00

Whether the court Allahu Akbar Allahu Allah will not just on the cotton filter, and Zakat and the video is $10. This year, the boxes will be out there for you a shout out and as soon as they're out there, please start taking care.

01:10:00--> 01:10:06

With that daughter colonial crying I'll leave when I found out what he had come be my female he was decretive hakima como la sala tickle
