One of the ways of achieving comfort in crisis is to spend

00:00:04--> 00:00:23

to share to reach out to others. So the question is Who should I reach out to first? Obviously, those who are most in need, but Allah subhanho wa Taala says olma Falco, mean higher falleen why need a new one corabi now only

00:00:24--> 00:01:11

one Misaki nema 27 when you are going to spend, make sure that you spend on your parents, you spend on your relatives you spend on the orphans, you spend on the poor those in need, and the wayfarer, the one who is stranded. So make sure that you spend on these people take care of your elderly parents, your parents took care of you when you were young, it's about time you took care of them, even with the differences you may have. And it's normal to begin to have differences as you grow older, with those who are even older, perhaps a generation gap, perhaps whatever other reason, but remember, be patient become only say respectful words and spend on them, make sure that they are

okay. When they reach the age where they cannot work anymore. They cannot earn any more. They should not have to worry about life, we should be spending on them. May Allah grant us remember when you spend on others, the Almighty has to give you because in order to get it to them, you are the one who's undertaken to give it to them so he will give it to you first. And this is why he says then look around you your family members, your brothers, your sisters, those who are related to you, your uncles and aunts, nephews and nieces and the circle goes broader. Take care of them, anyone from among them struggling, reach out to them and look at the comfort Allah will give you when you are in

00:01:54--> 00:02:27

difficulty and hardship. Then you look for those who are orphans and the widows and look after them for the sake of the Almighty. look after them because they've lost a parent or they've lost their father. They've lost a breadwinner. Look after the poor look after the needy those who are stranded the strangers who've come to your town, those who are passing by you don't know them. They don't know you but all you know is that they are stranded. The Almighty says look after them and then you see how the Almighty will bless you.
