salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

smilla rahmanir rahim In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala Most Gracious, Most Merciful al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen All praise is indeed due to Allah subhanho wa Taala creator nareesha cherishes sustainer provider protector cure of one and all was Salatu was Salam ala shuffelin via it will mostly Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa momento beyond BSN and Elijah Medina whereby we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his household all his companions, may Allah bless them all and bless every single one of us. I mean,

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

my brothers and sisters in Islam

00:00:45--> 00:01:26

many times when we hear the call to prayer, and when we know that the time for Salah has just entered, we take our time, we actually do not respond immediately. Sometimes we think to ourselves that okay, perhaps there is a little bit of time, I still have a chance. You know, the time is just sitting now I will go just now. Did you know that that is the first step of the plot of Chopin to get you diverted from Salah when you are almost ready for it? He tells you just know Don't worry, there is still a bit of time. So that bit of time before you know it The time is expired and you think to yourself, oh no, I just missed it. May Allah forgive us. May Allah strengthen us. Now Allah

00:01:26--> 00:02:08

subhanho wa Taala help us understand the plot of shaytan whenever Allah has called us or instructed us to do something, a true believer will not rest until that is done. A true believer will not feel calm or at peace or at ease until he knows that he has tried his best to serve Allah subhanho wa Taala in the most beautiful way. And if we take a look at verse number 38 of surah, two Toba, a narration made mention of interseeded poverty by emfs is known as Mujahid Rama to LA LA. He says the Battle of taboo was a very difficult battle. It was a long journey from Madina munawwara at the time, when it was very, very hot in the middle of summer, they had just come back from her name, and

00:02:08--> 00:02:45

if and they had struggled quite a bit, and then the messenger sallallahu Sallam says we need to face the Romans because they have assassinated the ambassador of Islam, and therefore prepare the army and let's move. Nobody was an exception. Every single person was conscripted to leave Madina munawwara the males who are able and capable they had to go, but sadly, some people found excuses and other people who may have been good, they delayed a little bit in responding to the call of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed this verse number 38 of Salatu Toba? Yeah, Latina

00:02:46--> 00:02:51

mela comida de la como few movies have been in

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

a circle to

00:02:57--> 00:03:39

you who believe what is it with you that when you are told to go forth for the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala to please Allah subhanho wa Taala you become heavy on the spot that you are upon on Earth, which means you're not moving. What is it that when Allah and His Messenger have called you through for something that is in the pleasure of Allah known as the cause of Allah, whether it is Salah, whether it is a good deed, whether it is the call to dress appropriately, whether it is the call to abstain from sin, remember when we say Sabina Allah, it includes more than 100,000 different channels of Islam. It includes your Salah, your dress code, your attitude, your your your

00:03:39--> 00:04:18

truthfulness, your character, your conduct, your zeca, your Hajj, your Amazon, you assume all these are known as the path of Allah, your Quran, your recitation of the Quran, perhaps the publishing printing of the Quran and Islamic literature, perhaps building the massage hidden modality is doing any good work for the pleasure of Allah is known as Sabina it's known as the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Although in this particular verse, reference was being made solely to the Battle of taboo, but obviously the lesson is for us all, let us not become heavy on the earth, when the time for fudger sets in, don't become heavy on your bed, when the time for a Salah comes in, do not become

00:04:18--> 00:04:42

lazy when a good cause is right, calling towards you. Do not delay. May Allah subhanho wa Taala strengthen us it's a very, very beautiful lesson we learn from this lovely verse of the Quran, like I said, although it was revealed for a specific purpose, but it should be helping us to tackle laziness and to be able to answer to the call of Allah subhanho wa Taala at all times.

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

Similarly, that particular Battle of the book, a lot of the hypocrites stayed behind, even though I'd be hurting makes mention of a narration by Jabba Viola Han. He says the hypocrites who remained behind when it came to the Battle of the book, they thought that the Muslims were going to lose

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

Facing the Romans, you are so small in number, how is it that you're going to win? Not possible, they stayed behind. They had no excuse and what they were doing, they were looking for news regarding the believers whenever they had good news that the believers have progressed and they've gone forth, and they have done this and that it used to hurt them. It used to hurt them. And whenever they heard that, oh, now they're struggling with the heat and they struggling with this and that they used to become happy. And they used to say just as well we stayed behind in Medina, May Allah forgive us. Before I read the verse for you, let me tell you, what you learn from this is true

00:05:36--> 00:06:16

believers should be happy at the happiness of one another. And they should be saddened at the sorrow of another someone has passed away May Allah grant him gentlemen, it is important for us to share that loss because we say in La La, La La Jolla, indeed we all belong to Allah we will all return to Allah my brother I sympathize with you May Allah grant be the deceased paradise and so on. We need to feel this loss when someone suffers a loss and we feel happy. We cannot call ourselves true believers. Lot of hurry shama tattly, elique fire hammer Allahu abdelhak one of the narrations, the Prophet sallahu wa sallam he said to have said, that do not become happy at this at the loss of your

00:06:16--> 00:06:53

brother. Perhaps Allah might have mercy on him and test you with the same if not worse. Look at the beautiful teachings of Islam become happy for one another. And when you see sadness, it should make you sad. The minimum is you feel hurt in your heart. Look at what's happening to our brothers and sisters in Burma. Look at what's happening to our brothers and sisters across the globe. Whether it is Syria or Palestine, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the list is absolutely endless. Every day we are adding a new area Have you realized that now Allah subhanho wa Taala granted strength May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us so verse number 50 of solo to tell by who was reviewed and to say Becca

00:06:53--> 00:06:54

Hassan at

00:06:55--> 00:07:06

home, whenever good comes in your direction, it hurts them who the hypocrites they were being exposed. Why Toshiba kamasi by yopu

00:07:12--> 00:07:13

whoo sorry.

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

Whenever even befalls you,

00:07:19--> 00:07:56

they become happy. And do you know what they say just as well we have gathered our order in advance which means we knew about this. So we stayed in Madina munawwara we did not join them in the first place. They go back while they are happy. Now Allah grant us a lesson from this particular verse. Also what's important my brothers and sisters, sometimes you enter the masjid. Sometimes you see people who might not be coming often to the house of Allah. But sometimes Allah has drawn them here brought them for some reason. Maybe Allah created a problem in their lives, they've now found their road to the masjid or perhaps they might have just got a softening of the heart from Allah subhanho

00:07:56--> 00:08:26

wa Taala and they come in and you find an uncle or anyone else who is now worshiping Allah, they are standing in Salah, perhaps they are crying, perhaps they are doing something in their own little way for Allah subhanho wa Taala never make a mockery of them. Never joke about them. Never love. Never past bad comments. I remember once many years ago when I was young, there was someone who walked into the masjid for Salah to federal, and news got out that those who are regular for Salatin, they actually passed a comment saying, Look who lost his way today.

00:08:27--> 00:09:02

Allah forgive us. These types of statements only belong to hypocrites. Everyone else would become happy to say this is the house of Allah. I've said it twice or thrice this month. This house does not belong to you, nor does it belong to me. It belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We must make people comfortable here we must make people feel like they want to attend. They must be happy. They are the guests of Allah. They must feel so good. When they come in here they feel the ambience. Even if a non Muslim wants to come in and learn a thing or two about Islam, he must feel the spirituality of the place. Subhana Allah, this is Islam. This is the way the Prophet peace be upon him treated

00:09:02--> 00:09:09

the people. Why is it that we have different so let's take a look at the verse with number at number 58 of Salatu Toba

00:09:10--> 00:09:17

narration in Sahih al Bukhari as well as sooner than NASA emotional dilemma met by Abby Seidel, Audrey rhodiola, when

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

he makes mention of,

00:09:22--> 00:09:25

in fact, the verse I'm speaking about,

00:09:26--> 00:09:29

is a different verse we Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:09:30--> 00:09:43

has made mention of an individual who sacrificed what he had in order to come forth to give it for the Battle of the book, when the charities were being collected.

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

It's a hadith reported by a woman

00:09:50--> 00:09:52

and it is reported that a man known as

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

a man known as Abu Dhabi, Allah when the people were coming with charities, you know, came with a lot

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

terms of charity and someone else came with so much in terms of charity, and had nothing to give. And he wanted to contribute. So what did he do? He worked all night. And guess what? He got two measurements of dates, half of it, he came. And he presented it as a charity. He says, well, messenger, these are some dates that I found now compared to the 1000s of coins and a lot of wealth that the others have been given. It's a small little token amount, isn't it? He gave it he put it forth. And so what happened is,

00:10:32--> 00:11:03

the hypocrites started commenting, like I said, moments ago, don't ever belittle people, small acts of worship, no, someone has just started wearing a scarf and you laugh at them. Someone is just trying to obey Allah's instruction. And you start laughing look at this person. It's Amazon. Now look at them, they looking like nuns. We've heard these comments. Now Allah forgive us. So the hypocrites was sitting around, they said, Look, this person, Allah doesn't need this small little measurement of this guy. What is he? What is he thinking he's going to achieve? He's giving a small amount of dates here thinking that that charity is really going to help Allah. Allah forgive us.

00:11:04--> 00:11:16

Like I said, this narration is made mention of Mustafa Talia who say this companions name was akin to Allah when he either came on half a measurement or he came with half of what he had earned working through the whole night.

00:11:18--> 00:11:47

Now if you pause for a moment, and you think, what is he giving, he's giving away 50% of his belongings. percentage wise, he's given more than a lot. Today, if you were to give 1000 rands that might be naught point 1% of a lot of people's money. But if someone says I'm giving half of what I own, it's a very big deal. Remember this? So percentage wise, it was huge. This comment was really uncalled for. So Allah subhanho wa Taala review verse number 79, of surah.

00:11:48--> 00:12:16

A Toba where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Allah Dena mizuna, Mata Marina Mina Mina few sada partywear leadin Allah g Duna in La Jolla home fires Corona amin safira, la homie no mana Hamada, Annie, those who are making a mockery of all who criticize those who come with little charities, voluntary charities.

00:12:17--> 00:12:27

Those who have found nothing besides a little bit of their effort that they've made, and now they're coming with a small amount, the ones who are making a mockery of them or who are criticizing them.

00:12:28--> 00:13:06

Allah will make a mockery of them and for them is a severe punishment. How can you make a mockery of anyone trying to come close to Allah in any way? May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us come close to him? And may He help us support one another? When we notice something good, even if it is miniature steps, let us make sure we encourage people rather than discourage them smile at the effort of others smile when you see people do good deeds, when you see people sitting with the foreign, even if you've seen them the first time in their lives. So what perhaps their entry into paradise might be light years before yours. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all entry into agenda, going back

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

to the initial verse that I've made mention of, and then I realized that actually it was a different vessel together. Let's speak about that.

00:13:14--> 00:13:17

There was some people there was a man known as Abdullah

00:13:18--> 00:13:24

II know Ville hoysala. He was known as being from among those who hypocritical

00:13:25--> 00:13:35

and what he used to do is when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to do something he used to always comment negatively, one on one such moment, mentioned in

00:13:37--> 00:13:38

Sahih al Bukhari Buhari

00:13:39--> 00:13:43

as well as soon and anessa, a Muslim Ahmed Hadith of

00:13:45--> 00:14:04

the Prophet sallahu wa salam once distributed a distribution among his companions of the spoils of war. And this man comes up to LA even though they'll have a cell and he says, a deal Yeah, Mohammed, sulphide Allah. Do you know what that means? Be just Mohammed.

00:14:05--> 00:14:15

Don't be unjust be just distributed fairly. And Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam his face changed and he became upset and he became red. And he says,

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

woman Yeah.

00:14:19--> 00:14:32

If I'm not going to be just Who else is there who's going to be just how can you say be just to the messenger Salalah Salah imagine what an insult what a blasphemous statement from the mouth of this man.

00:14:33--> 00:15:00

And the reason is, he felt his portion was small. So the problem with some people, when you give them a big portion, they're happy with you. When you give them a small portion, they are sad with you. Some people when you reach out to them, they're happy. I recall once there was an example that person gave me. He says I used to drive to work every morning. And every morning I used to give a certain brother a lift, going to work. And one day some reason I didn't see him you know on the road. I must have been

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

I must have been occupied and I passed him. And he spoke so bad about me to other people that this man is so selfish. He's so arrogant, he says, but I missed him once I've taken him to work 200 times he didn't think about that. Because I missed him once he now everything rotated around the fact that this guy is terrible, he's bad. He left me in the cold. He left me standing out there he didn't realize my brothers and sisters, let's not be like this. We are let's not be people who when we get we're happy when we don't get we're not happy. Let's be people who understand the broader picture. We belong to an oma, let's understand, listen to what Allah says verse number 58.

00:15:37--> 00:15:49

woman whom a miso coffee soda from among them are those who criticize you regarding the charities regarding the distribution of the charities, for in order to mean

00:15:51--> 00:15:54

a woman either whom Yes,

00:15:56--> 00:16:14

if they are granted from it, they are happy, smiling, when they are not given, they are angry, they become upset. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us reach out to one another in the most beautiful way, my brothers and sisters, and why he makes mention of something interesting.

00:16:15--> 00:16:21

But before I go there, you see this man who told Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam be just this would happen.

00:16:22--> 00:16:25

Amara musataha the Allahu anhu heard the statement.

00:16:26--> 00:16:36

He got up immediately. He took out his sword and he says, Let me slice this men are messengers of Asana, you know, he was a hard hearted person. He was very, very

00:16:37--> 00:17:22

powerful. He did not tolerate nonsense so to speak. So the messenger peace be upon him says No, leave him. We don't want people saying Mohammed, her hands, salam, Salam Homs his companions. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson from the beautiful mercy of this messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was indeed sent to entire mankind and entire creation as a means of mercy. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us. So Anwar, he makes mention of the professor Mujahid and what he has said regarding the hypocrites that you know what they used to talk quietly among themselves. bad things about the believers and Mohammed Salah Salah, and then they used to tell each other.

00:17:23--> 00:17:48

Hey, I hope revelation doesn't come and expose us because Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam will find out what we're talking about, even behind closed doors. Why? Because Allah will inform him. So they used to always say, I hope no one finds out. I hope revelation doesn't come and expose us. So that very statement of this was exposed. Allah says verse number 64 Yeah, tuna, tuna,

00:17:50--> 00:17:57

tuna, b o b MapInfo. beam. The hypocrites are uneasy. They are always worried

00:17:59--> 00:18:10

that verses may be revealed, disclosing what lies in their hearts. Allah says Gulistan z, oh, keep on joking and saying what you want in Allah.

00:18:13--> 00:18:53

Allah will take out that which you are worried about, you're worrying about being exposed. Watch, you will be exposed. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, forgive us and we will see in sha Allah today and tomorrow, how the hypocrites were exposed in so many different ways, what they said and what they did. Let's take a look at one of the statements. When the messenger sallallahu Sallam went to the book, it might be hard to intercede October he makes mention of the narration of ignorance of the law when he says they were sitting behind watching the believers. And they said, we've never seen a greedy a lot than this. pointing at the believers, they were pretending to be believers imagine. And

00:18:53--> 00:19:12

they looking at the rest of the meaning and the messenger salatu salam. And they said these people they are greedy. These people are cowardly. And these people are the ones who are ill intention. They have very bad intentions. We've never seen liars those who utter falsehood worse than these people.

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

And these statements were all uttered against whom?

00:19:16--> 00:20:00

against Allah and against the messenger and against the believers. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed versus exposing the statement. There was a man known as alpha numeric. He heard these people utter the statement and he told him, would you keep quiet? It is blasphemous what you've uttered. They said, No, no, no, we're just joking. And they went to he went to the prophets of Allah Santa Monica, to complain to say or messenger. These people have uttered words. But Allah subhanho wa Taala had already told Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam about what they uttered. And these people came running. They came running, telling Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam No, no, no, no, we are too

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

These words but before they could say but and excuse themselves, the verses were already revealed. Let's listen to them. Verse number 65. So to tell them well

00:20:13--> 00:20:29

if you were to ask them, ask them what were you saying? Napoleon in American Nana boo boo Anna lab? They will tell you we were only joking we were only talking we were not serious. We were only joking and you know having fun

00:20:30--> 00:20:33

playing the lab. Cool.

00:20:34--> 00:20:37

Tell them all Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam a bill

00:20:38--> 00:20:40

D massone?

00:20:44--> 00:20:53

Are you joking regarding Allah and His signs and the messenger sallallahu Sallam do do not present your excuses for the cafardo

00:20:56--> 00:21:01

you have entered the fold of disbelief after you will believe is

00:21:03--> 00:21:44

still a federal law. This verse is so serious. It shows us that if you make a mockery of Allah and His messenger and the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Perhaps you lose your faith. Perhaps you can lose your Eman. How can I joke about Allah? How can I joke about the Rasool How can I joke about any one of the prophets of Allah? How can I joke about heaven and hell? How can I joke about the angels? These are the saints of Allah subhanho wa Taala. How can I joke about them? I have no no excuse. Why I'm not allowed to be joking about sacred matters, that which is close to the hearts of billions of people. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deeper understanding so much. So that belief is a

00:21:44--> 00:22:22

thought that you're not allowed to make a mockery or a joke of what is not sacred to you, but sacred to other people. Because as a result, they may in turn, make a mockery of Allah and the messenger and what was sacred to the Muslim mean, causing huge problems. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us forgiveness. And this was a really major incident that occurred at that time of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam where these people were exposed by Allah subhanho wa Taala, the hypocrites who were making mention of bad things regarding Allah and His Messenger, then they just say, I was just joking. Before I moved to the next point, I want to say, it just came to my mind now.

00:22:24--> 00:23:03

Sometimes we insult people. And when we are cornered, we say I was just joking. I was joking, man. Have you heard that? Well, ah, it's a problem. It's a difficulty. Do not do that. Don't insult do not hurt people in the name of joking with the excuse of just joking. No. Jokes have their limits, you cannot insult someone and then say I was joking. That's not a Muslim. If you want to joke, it might be a statement of laughter that might you know, make people laugh a little bit, perhaps a lighter moment. But without insult, no racism in any joke, no insult in any joke. No, belittling people in any joke. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson.

00:23:05--> 00:23:27

Now I'd like to go into one of the biggest stories that we have, in fact, the biggest story we have this evening. It is a story that some of the scholars say the naming might be weak, which means in the narration, there is a name mentioned that but the name because it's mentioned by so many scholars, I will say it inshallah this evening. But there is discrepancy you need to know as to the correctness of the narration,

00:23:28--> 00:24:05

there was a certain companion and this is made mention of by Allah hady and the Sufi as well. It's also mentioned in Bharani, as well as the biohacking and hacking duration of a boomer of your loved one. He says there was a man known as dalada even know how to balance it. It'll be a long line for us. We have to know him as well, the alumni no matter what he was a companion, he had might have had his weaknesses, like I said, perhaps maybe even the name that is mentioned here. Like some of the scholars have said it's a weekend eration. Let's take it. Let's learn the lesson. The reason I'm making mention of it, it's a very, very powerful story. And the lesson is for us today, let's listen

00:24:05--> 00:24:27

to it. So Omar Abdullah says Taliban, he came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he was a poor man. And he says, Oh messenger, make dua for me that I become rich. The people ask for do some people say make sure that I'm healthy make do after this. Yes, this man says make do I become rich. The prophets of Allah Allah Salam says Oh,

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

it is better for you to have a little and be thankful than to get lost in a lot. Look at the woods, you're going to have a lot you're going to get lost in it. It's better to have a little and be thankful when he says Oh, when fella by insisted he says, I am the messenger if I want. I can have gold and silver as I wish. But I am so happy with this little portion because we are passers by in this world. How much do you want? You know

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

When we were young talk about myself okay? When we were young we used to think Okay, you know what a the first $1,000 I see you that's gonna be something big. To be honest with you, you get to the figure and all I gave means nothing. I'm sure from amongst us there must be people who say, the first million o'clock I'll retire. Today a million is a joke by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala for some people, for us, it's still quite serious Mashallah.

00:25:27--> 00:26:11

So my brothers and sisters, this man says, oh, messenger, I know what you're talking about. But I promise I promise that I will use my money for the cause of Islam. Look at the excuses people make, I promise I will use my money to reach out to people I will use my money to do good. So the messenger sallallahu Sallam makes one two, what does he say? He says, Allahu masuka that Allah batum Allah, O Allah, grant this men well, so the man goes in, he wins. When he went, he bought a few sheep. And in no time the sheep multiplied, he became a shepherd of Medina. Guess what they say literally like worms coming out who she was she who she fell, Medina was too small. He decided, you

00:26:11--> 00:26:48

know what I need to go out of Medina is a valley there, he purchased a place and he put his sheep there and it multiplied, multiplied, like no man's business, literally popcorn law. Allah Subhana Allah grant us understanding. This man used to read his Salah in the masjid, all five were in the masjid. When his business grew, he had to shift out of town. You know, when you got one branch open another one. You got one garage, you went another five, you got another five you want another and you never happy? So panela one branch you need a bigger one, another one. And then you become upset when a small boy opens a little branch next to yours. But you don't realize I've got 10 other

00:26:48--> 00:27:08

branches man, let him earn. This is the weakness of a Muslim. We think our sustenance is going to be affected when someone else opens a similar business nearby to ours, not realizing that that in fact is his sustenance. And perhaps Allah may bring to you some Baraka and blessing you never ever imagined. Don't become upset. It's a big lesson, powerful lesson.

00:27:09--> 00:27:52

So this man, suddenly he was only seen for vote and so Salah, the other Salas, he wasn't there. And then they came a time he was so busy with all his wealth, that the Hadith, this narration of Abu mama says, he was only seen for Juma. Look at this. And what's happening, the man is wealthy, he's wealth is multiplied, he's become known as one of the wealthiest so when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not see much of him, he asks the people waste Allah, and they gave him the breakdown, that you know this man, he's well, and rasulillah salam knew that he told him to have a little bit is better thankful than to get lost in a lot and he was literally lost. Anyway, Some time passed.

00:27:52--> 00:28:31

And then the verses of Zakah were revealed, and Zakah became compulsory. We our losses could mean a mwalimu sadhaka total hero, take from their wealth, the charity that will cleanse them. So the Prophet salatu salam gathered a few companions, and he sent them to a few areas. Two of them were sent to a certain area near where Salah was, and another man from Bhanu Sulaiman. So when they arrived, they went with Allah. And he said, Who are you and what do you want? Obviously, big man is hard to see him now. You know, when you're young, everyone can meet you and greet you. When you smile, and you're a nobody. Everyone can talk to you and so on. The minute you become big, you

00:28:31--> 00:29:13

ignore the phone calls. You ignore everything. Nobody can talk to you. No one can reach you. May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us and grant us ease. Yes, it is okay to actually channel all the meetings and so on. But always remain humble. always understand your beginnings. And you should know Allah can take it away. In a split second. Allah He we've seen people who've lost absolutely everything. In Nepal, in Syria, in Bangladesh, in so many other countries, they've lost it. I'm sure even here in this country, you may have seen people who might have lost absolutely everything and they were multimillionaires. Five minutes before that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and May

00:29:13--> 00:29:32

He grant us humbleness and humility. So this man says Who are you? What do you what do you want? They said, Look, we've come to take charity. The messenger has sent us what charity so they read the verse they showed him a little parchment that was written he said no, no, no, no, this is like a tax. I don't know of any text. What text do people want? He says you know what?

00:29:34--> 00:29:59

Is it only me you've come to get from they said no, we sent to a few people. There's someone else but you know what, go to him go and see what he wants. And on your way back, come and see me again. I'll see what I can do. Familiar statement, isn't it? I'll see what I can do. You go musty collection. You want to go to people and the richest of the lot is the stingiest of the lot. It's always the case. Maybe May Allah subhanho wa Taala I have to say that maybe to cover a few decent people and handle that.

00:30:03--> 00:30:38

But it is really sometimes the wealthiest of the law to not know where to spend their money. Well law its effect, and I'm taking the liberty to save because I've witnessed it myself. People who have so much of money, they really do not know what to do with it when there's a wrong cause they will be the first ones without being told. When there is a powerful cause. As much as they are being encouraged to give they just do not see the light. That's it. That's from Allah. Remember this, it all depends on how you earned it. When you earn it correctly with humbleness, humility, there is Baraka and blessing with sanity. When you've earned it through clandestine means, and you've

00:30:38--> 00:31:08

deceived and cheated and robbed, you will get it with no blessing and insanity. May Allah forgive us. Remember, I've said it quite strictly and I'm not joking. So this man says, You know what, come back later. Like I said, you go for a powerful collection. You know, this is deadly, cause something really serious and the person says, Yeah, Chase him away. Send him out. Go common common reverted. Yeah, it is. It's in the narration of abou Mama. That's why I told you I want to mention this narration no matter what the people have said about it.

00:31:09--> 00:31:30

So they went to the mental Musulin. That man had a little bit of wealth. They read to him the verse, they told him, we've come for charity, he said, Come, come. This is my wealth. This is all my stock livestock. This is the best of it. I want you to take this, which is the best take it give it to the messenger. Tell him I said make dua for me for Baraka.

00:31:32--> 00:32:10

They said, No, we've been instructed not to take the best give us the average wealth. He says you've been instructed not to take the best, but I want to give it to you from the bottom of my heart. I'm so thankful to Allah take the best of it. So they took it to Panama. And on their way back. They stopped by our men, Mashallah. And they tell him, he says, What did he give you? They said, Look, he gave us as well and so on. He says, look, as for me, I'm sorry. You can go back and I'm not giving you anything. You know, I'll think about it. I'll see you later. And he chased them away without anything. And this was the man he forgot his. He forgot his humble beginnings. He forgot that there

00:32:10--> 00:32:18

was a time when he had no. So when the messenger sallallahu Sallam received the people he knew because immediately he said,

00:32:20--> 00:32:22

Why Hakka? Salah?

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

Yeah.

00:32:26--> 00:32:36

He already spoke when he saw these people come through, he knew that there's something wrong here that Allah has avoided the whole thing. And he says, oh, danger that man is in danger.

00:32:37--> 00:32:59

So they asked him Salalah Salah, he asked them and they told him the story. And they were relatives of Allah who was seated nearby. Allah subhanho wa Taala reviewed verses as the story is being narrated. So Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was given this verse number 75, of Salatu Toba woman whom Allah Allah in

00:33:01--> 00:33:07

fabu phalguni Lana sadaqa Alana coonan, Amina sorry.

00:33:09--> 00:33:22

There are some from amongst them who make a promise to you, that will lie if Allah blesses us we will be charitable and we will be truthful we will spend in the cause. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says falam

00:33:24--> 00:33:34

falguni then when Allah gives them from his virtue barcino be they become stingy with it. They forget what

00:33:37--> 00:33:59

they turn away, turning away from the instruction of Allah. Why? Because now they've become wealthy. They don't even need Allah according to them start with Allah. So Allah says, For acaba hanifa v pulumi. Him, Eli ami altona. Allah has stamped hypocrisy in their hearts until the day they will meet with Allah.

00:34:00--> 00:34:25

This is the punishment. So some of the relatives of Taliban they set they they heard this, they rushed to Salah but they went to him and said, Hey, Revelation has come in your regard. And this is what the verses are. You chase these people away without giving them well, and now they are chronic versus red in your regard. So what Salah did, he quickly took as much as he could, he rushed to the messenger sallallahu sallam, he says all messenger, I've come

00:34:26--> 00:34:33

with my charity, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says in Allah hermana Annie, Allah has prohibited me from taking this from you.

00:34:36--> 00:34:46

Allah prohibited me from taking this from you. He says no this and that whatever excuse I'm sorry. Do you know what the time is up but I want to complete the story.

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

He tried his throat throughout the life of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to give. He did not accept it when Mohammed Salah Salem passed away. Abu Bakr Siddiq, Allah Allah took over and he came to abubaker with a lot of it and he said

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

You know, I was very close to the Prophet. He was very close to me. And you know, this is my charity, Abubakar avellana says yes, we know all about it. If he didn't accept it, I'm not accepting it either.

00:35:10--> 00:35:48

Abubakar vilano passed away. The same thing happened at the time of Omar Abdullah when he came back and he says, I want to give this money, take what you want, how much you want, for whatever you want, can take it from me. He says, the two who are better than me haven't taken it, I will not take the same thing happened at the time of this man, robiola. And when he came there, this man comes back again, and he says, I want to give you the wealth. Once again, I want to give you this model the law says I can't take it and guess what he passed away during the time of assessment of the allowance. Now, as I said, What is more important than the story is the lesson from it. Because some

00:35:48--> 00:36:21

of the mohabbatein have spoken of the weakness of narration, we have to make mention of it but the points we would all agree are solid, they are powerful. We promise a lot of things you know when someone is sick, we say Allah, I'll never miss a Salah again, you become better and your Salah is gone. These are the things we need to learn. Never make a promise to Allah and then treat him like he's just by the way, not at all. That is Europe. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all and grant us ease inshallah, we will continue tomorrow. Until then, what's Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah Homa behenic Michel De La La Land
