salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah, Allah, Allah, he was heavy hedge mine, my brothers and sisters, when we spend, we should be spending in a way that the left hand does not know what the right hand is spent given in charity. When we give in charity, Allah will grant us comfort, Allah will give us extension of our sustenance, Allah will give us extension even in our lifespan in the blessings of our lifespan. So it's amazing how you spend and try and be secretive about it. But is it prohibited to disclose what you've done? The answer is no. In fact, at times it is recommended. So when is it recommended?
It's recommended when you know that by you disclosing it to someone, you're going to be encouraging them. And then you get a reward when they actually spend as a result of having been having seen you, or having learned about what you did SubhanAllah. So it's recommended. Similarly, when you're giving a third party some money to give to a charitable cause, you need to make a follow up, especially if that party is not absolutely trustworthy. And what's happening today, there are so many charitable organizations, very sadly, those in the field of charity will tell you meaning in the field of managing charities will tell you that perhaps the bulk of these charities are not as accountable as
they should be. So don't just blindly trust at times they duplicate things out of corruption out of mercy shape and is real. A person comes in his managing a charity, he's suddenly seeing millions of dollars, what would happen to him, you know, sometimes shape and comes in corrupt him.
And so you you may have duplication, you know, you've done something you've probably drill the well, somewhere, you might have built a Masjid somewhere you might have assisted someone, it's good to just have a plaque to say a name, preferably your name or someone's name around you because you don't want four or five people who have paid for the same well. And this person actually then fraudulently showed everyone that well, pretending like it was them who did it. Yet they ate the money from everyone else, and only did it once. So for this reason, Allah makes it clear in the Quran. You know what? into Buddha sadhaka Tiffany Mahi, if you are going to disclose your socket and
your charities, it's fine. It's completely fine. You know, so this is something that I thought I'd make mention of although we're speaking of hope and healing, but the hope here is in the reward of spending and when you spend do it correctly. So I diverted a little bit in order to teach you how and why it is important to get your name on something at that you want to show off. I want to just make sure that others are protected from being deceived here. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep understanding. So there is no way in the Quran or the sooner that says it is prohibited to disclose the charity. No way. It just says it's recommended not to disclose it. When, when you can
do that. Subhan Allah Subhana Allah amazing. So Allah says, give out in the charity and at night during the daytime secretly or openly, Allah says give out the charity, and Allah will grant you goodness. Now, at the end of Surah Al Baqarah, the powerful verses I'm sure you must have heard, we spoke about ayatul kursi in a previous episode. And here I want to mention other powerful verses that have so much of hope in them and so much of healing in them, because Allah commences the last verse of Surah Baqarah by telling us law you can live for love and if sin in those are, Allah will never, Allah will never burden anyone, any soul with more than it can shoulder Subhan Allah whatever
Allah gave you, whatever Allah threw at you was only because he knew you could cope and you could manage. So stretch yourself, push yourself you know you can do it you will do it you and you can do it, and Allah will give you the strength to do it. Subhan Allah, so Allah says now you can live alone Epson in Laos, Allah will not
burden a soul with more than it can shoulder
that's an amazing verse
lahoma cassava Twyla hammock desolate, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how
In a nutshell, the good that the person has earned will be for the person. And the bad that the person has earned will be against the person. Now, I'm a bit worried I need some hope. I need some healing because I've done bad things. And I know that Allah says against me, will be the bad deeds. Now what can I say to Allah so that he can forgive me? Just read the rest of that verse and you keep smiling, one of the most beautiful, amazing verses, he says, a burner led to a fever in nesina Oh a foreigner, Oh Allah, do not hold against us. forgetfulness whenever we've forgotten, or whenever we've made a mistake. We're human beings we make mistakes we earn and we forget, Allah says, I've
given you that Subhana Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam confirmed it for us raffia and Mattie alaba one nice year and warmest to curry who Allah He
the pen has been lifted, or the sin has been lifted upon from the members of my oma meaning for that which they have made a mistake. It was just a clean mistake. Allah won't hold it against you. It's not even written or forgetfulness. Allah won't write it against your name because you simply forgot you're a human or that which you were forced to do. Allah won't hold it against you. Subhan Allah coersion May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us from his mercy how merciful is Allah? You forgot something Allah says, nevermind. You made a mistake somewhere Allah says, nevermind. You are forced to do something against your will. Allah says we won't hold you responsible. We will hold the one
who forced you responsible? So Han Allah subhanaw taala we've got our beautiful that vs. Then we continue
our burner wallet Malala is Ron comma Hamilton who Allah cleaner. Now we're asking Allah it's a it's a supplication, Oh Allah.
Don't burden us with things that the previous nations were burdened with in terms of negativity in terms of rules, regulations, in terms of so much that they had or Allah Don't let us go through those hardships, those difficulties that they went through, okay, Robin, now one or two hammermill, narmala, Takata and RB, O Allah Do not place upon us that which we won't be able to fulfill. Don't make it incumbent upon us to fulfill something that we won't manage to do. You're asking Allah to consider the fact that your ability is only to a certain degree, beyond which you don't have the ability. So Oh, Allah, don't make me do something I can't do. Allah says, I've given that to you.
You can't, if you can't do something, it's okay. Look at the fasting. You can't manage. You can do it at another time. Look at the prayer. If you can't manage standing, you can sit if you can sit, you can lie down, what hope is there. What type of great hope is there in the mercy of Allah? So Allah says, the DA right at the end is probably the most beautiful it says, What if one welfare learner What?
Oh, Allah, forgive us. What have one, forgive, you know, forgive for go and forgive. Or feel Anna and accept our repentance forgive our sins, or hum Have mercy on us. And tamo Lana, URL protector. You're our protector Allah, from sadhana, alchemy, caffeine, so help us against those who disbelief. Those who want us to veer off the path or Allah help us so we don't veer off the path, so that we are not overcome by them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us from his goodness. So these last verses of Surah Al Baqarah. In fact, the last verse, we should also be repeating it in the morning in the evening. It's a very good supplication. And it's really amazing. It has in it a lot of hope.
And it has in it healing for the broken for the heartbroken because sometimes you end up forgetting something Allah says Don't worry, we know you forgot. Imagine the healing in that. I'm okay because I know Allah will not hold against me something that I forgotten.
So this verse needs to be repeated as well. And this is why it's very, very important for us to constantly look into the words of the Quran, the Quran has entered healing, and we should read the meanings of the words of the Quran and ask those who know if we don't know. We don't just arrive at a conclusion from ourselves. We have to ask those who know whenever we are confused whenever we don't know. That's what Allah subhanho wa Taala say So I invite you my brothers and sisters to go through the pages of the Quran reading the meanings read these verses. The verses have in them cure just by repetition in a melodious tone.
These verses there is cure for diseases you may never know you had. And when you achieve that comfort, you will only be thanking Allah for having healed you and for having given you that renewed hope of goodness in this world and paradise in the hereafter.
