Assalamu Aleikum my brothers and sisters, today is Tuesday the 31st of March 2020. I want to bring to your attention that it is unacceptable to overcharge for basic commodities, and that which is necessary, especially during times like this, the crisis we are facing is really unprecedented. The last thing we'd want to do is to earn the displeasure of the Almighty by overpricing our goods simply because there is a need in the market. At this time, we must be reaching out to people in a beautiful way. In fact, we should be donating. If you want to earn the mercy of the Almighty one of the ways is to become charitable, give give as much as you can you help someone the Almighty will

help you. But to overcharge is actually unacceptable. Not only is it unacceptable from a human beings perspective, from good moral conduct, etc, etc. But from the almighty as well. He has asked us to take care of one another, especially at times of need. If you were to help someone during that time of need, the Almighty will help you during your time of need. And this crisis is such that we don't even know who is going to be affected next. So help while you can a day may come when you won't be able to help or you might need the help. And at that juncture, you don't want people overcharging you. So that is a simple point and the lesson for today. May Allah subhanho wa Taala

make us from those who can reach out to others from those who can help during times like these, not from those who rip people off simply because they have seen that there is a need in this particular place. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. Thank you so much for listening spread the word as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah
