Imagine Allah is telling you, the Doom is for a person who did this. So if you feel you're doomed, ask yourself, did I do this if you didn't, inshallah things are okay. But if you have done wrong, my brothers and sisters, no matter who you are, this is the time to resolve your matters of inheritance between you, your family members, your children, your nephews and nieces, your brothers, your uncles, and aunts, your parents, and whoever else, it may be the widow, the orphans, this is the time to resolve the crisis. Because if you want the mercy of Allah, make sure that you've given the dues to whomsoever they belong to. So much. So, when a person works for us, if we were to delay
their salary, do you know we are asking for trouble? Do you know that we are asking for the curse of Allah because we are supposed to be making the payment as soon as the work is done, or as per the agreement, if you have delayed or you abuse a person working for you, or you are not paying them, and there is no reason why you should not pay them, then remember, you are tampering with something that is very, very delicate in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To give the wealth, where it is due is a way of solving your crisis in your own home, your health and everything else. And this is why we are taught to give charity, in order to come out of difficulty we are taught to give charity,
imagine you haven't even given the fourth that which is compulsory, the dues. And you think that you're going to get a solution by being charitable, more important than all those charities is to resolve the $5 that you owe the brother or the sister, that is far more important than all the charities you may be throwing left, right and center. Because in Allah's eyes, he wants you to do that which is compulsory, before you do that which is voluntary. What is the point of someone making, or praying the voluntary prayers called nephew or soon when they haven't even done the father of all that which was compulsory. So that foolishness, Allah says don't allow that to
actually overtake you, you will pay as a result of this. And remember, the payment is not done immediately in all cases because Allah wants to give you a chance to resolve the problems. Allah wants to give you a chance to come back before he overtakes you with any form of hardship. So Allah says, I won't punish this person immediately. I'm going to give them time. So if you've done wrong, and you think you're getting away with it, you're actually not unless waiting for the right time. It may affect you now and it may affect you later, before crying tears of blood, my brothers and sisters, what does it cost you to solve the problem? Pick up the phone today. And sort the matter
out with those whom you have a matter with, if it is financial, especially the issue of inheritance. So much so that Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Whosoever cheats anyone when it comes to inheritance or delays them or deceives them, then they are cursed and perhaps they may be cast into hell fire in the hereafter for a very, very long time. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us.
