00:01:13--> 00:01:18

Praise to Allah subhana wa Tada. We are honored and privileged to be here today, once again,

00:01:20--> 00:01:23

from certain assets to select a Muslim inshallah.

00:01:24--> 00:01:34

If you remember some of you who attended a previous talk of mine in this Masjid, where we talked about the obligation to the creation of Allah,

00:01:35--> 00:01:40

open Eva, the rights of the servants of Allah Subhana who died.

00:01:41--> 00:01:49

We talked about the importance of entering into Islam completely, totally, wholeheartedly and fully.

00:01:50--> 00:01:56

We talked about the verse of the Quran where Allah says, Yeah, you Hello, hello, filmmaker.

00:01:57--> 00:02:45

Oh, you who believe enter into Islam fully. Don't take parts of the book of Allah and discard other parts of the book of Allah. Take Islam in its totality and act upon Islam, all the injunctions of the Quran and Sunnah. And I also briefly mentioned that there are different categories. There are different branches of the teachings of Islam. We have a call it we have a Baghdad and we have Marcia Clark and muamalat. In the previous talk, we talked about more Asha, social etiquettes, how to deal with one another, how to live as family members and as relatives and as Muslims and as human beings. The whole talk was focused on social etiquettes an adult

00:02:47--> 00:03:36

and then I mentioned that the next branch is which is one of the very important branches of Islam is the branch of more arm a lot more armor that means business transactions, financial transactions, and basically more ominous in Arabic the linguistic meaning of morality is from the word Talmud. A lot is a branch we said we have our belief, we have a burden of worshiping Allah. Then we have more our Shara, which we discussed pressure on living with one another. And then we have a HELOC. That's number five rules to do with the heart. And number four, this is what we're talking about today, which is more alert Mama tamera. Tomlin Arabic literally means to deal. But in the context when we

00:03:36--> 00:04:29

are categorizing the various rules of Islam, the fukada odema generally mean by the word muamalat. Not just any deal, or No Deal. But the financial dealings, business dealings, the financial transactions, financial transactions, that's what really the mean by more than a minute. And this is actually one of the branches from the teachings of Islam, one of the very important branches of Islam. Gus will hide early for you Burton battlefury the famous Hadith of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reading when he states seeking of Hello sustenance seeking of Hello provision res halaal seeking it cuz earning a livelihood, earning the Hello livelihood, forever tune

00:04:29--> 00:05:00

baghel for either it's an obligation after obligations, meaning that for a Muslim to seek a halal livelihood and earn a provision is an obligatory compulsory act. It's not something that's a worldly activity. It's an Islamic and a religious activity to seek Hello, earnings, customer Hillary forgotten battlefury and in this Howdy, actually two things are quite significant. Number one

00:05:00--> 00:05:49

One the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says Gus Boone Harare indication earning a halaal livelihood. Not just Hello people use listen to this Howdy. And they, of course rightly so they understand that earning a livelihood and earning money and working is a very important obligation. This is what Islam says yes, but there's a hidden indication here, not hidden is explicit. But some of us don't realize because our when we look at the Hadith, it's all about earning because we look at it from an angle earning money earning of Halla which means it's an obligation to avoid the haraam earning of a halaal income, earning Hello livelihood is an obligation

00:05:49--> 00:06:34

it's fun, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says from burden for either and then he said it's an obligation after other obligations, which also signifies that this is not your aim, purpose goal of life. Your aim and purpose and goal of life is is to please Allah subhanho wa Taala your attention your focus should be on the next life. This life is a short life and we earn a livelihood just to get by in this life. We don't earn to live in this world This world is temporary monetary gains money wealth is just something that takes us and you know makes us live this life that's it nothing else. We don't make it our objective of life to earn money when we don't even have time for

00:06:34--> 00:07:24

anything else. Allah says in the Quran alone. Luckily he him teacher Ratan wala Baron and the karela common Salah, these are people Allah is praising certain individuals he says, These are people whom business trade and sale and buying and selling does not stop them, does not make them negligent and neglectful from the real duties of their life, which is a comma to Sala offering Salam worshiping Allah, a Muslim has an ulterior goal. Another motive which is aka the next life earning of money is just something that gets you by in this life. And that's why to be so heavily engrossed in earning at the expense of one's religious activities and duties at the expense of even

00:07:27--> 00:07:38

giving attention to one's own family members. We live in a time today that people are so engrossed in earning money that they don't even have time to spend with their own children.

00:07:39--> 00:08:25

Seriously, there are people who are so engrossed in earning and working on with their jobs. They don't even have a time to have one meal with their family. What benefit is in the money that does not even allow you to eat food with your family members? There's no benefit. What is the benefit? Sometimes we we work like animals, day, night, night day, just one thing on our minds earning money, and we don't even see the fruits of it before we even see the fruits of it's time to leave this world life of 5060 years. We don't even see the fruits of it. So, this is what this Hadees is signifying that lazy hyena and Catherine out well Akina Lavina Xena knifes real richness is not

00:08:25--> 00:09:11

richness of wealth. richness is the richness of the heart is the contentment of the heart. A person can have less wealth and less money in the world. But if he or she is content with that less amount, that individual will be far superior than the one who earns much more but is not happy, still greedy, not content, local and even Adam worthy among the hub latonya Gunilla who were the enemy, the hub, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says greed is such a disease, that if the son of Adam has one Valley made of gold, he will seek and want to valleys of gold and low if he has to nepto a third Ethan will want a third Valley. And then he said la Yama, jofa Ebony, Adam in

00:09:11--> 00:09:58

the Torah, nothing will will satisfy the stomach of the son of Adam except sand dust, which is the grape. He'll just keep wanting more and more and more. And this is why we have to learn to be content, contentment and that brings about peace, manage money, doesn't bring peace, Money can't buy peace. People have a lot of money in this world. But still there are people who are millionaires, but they have to take medicine to sleep at night. They literally have to take medication, they can't sleep. They have all the luxuries the best bed and the best, you know, pillows and the most beautiful of mansions in the midst of that mansion. They are not able to sleep more than an hour or

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

two. Definitely

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

treated the depressed because many unmet roles and mansion and none of them none of these things can ever bring peace into the heart many cannot buy peace. The only thing that can buy peace is contentment and the vicar level subhanho wa Taala liquid Allah, Allah basically law he taught me in Roku with the remembrance of Allah do hearts find contentment, we have to learn to be content. You know, this is actually one of the one of the ingredients to be happy in this world. We all want to be happy. Everybody wants to be happy in this world. One of the Golden ingredients to be happy in this world is to be content. Reba balcatta

00:10:42--> 00:10:58

the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to make a dua aloha manana Luca Sahaja. When a fighter when a man at the hospital Julio POW cada is to ask for five things. This is the sooner tirmidhi will I ask of you? health?

00:10:59--> 00:11:00

chastity

00:11:01--> 00:11:45

Hello homogeneous Luca Suharto will refer to a monitor trustworthiness, how Snell hudak good character was harder to be content with destiny. Whatever Allah has given me, I am happy I'm content, even though it's less alive, where you have earned little but you have time to spend with your family with your children, you're at ease you have peace you have tranquility is far much better for your father in a better position where you don't you're earning and working day and night and you don't have no peace and no time to share with your family anything because ultimately the money itself is not going to do anything. It's that quality time that you can spend with your loved

00:11:45--> 00:11:51

ones. So we need to remember that this is the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:11:53--> 00:12:37

that gospel Hilary forgotten burial for Eva. Seeking of Heller is an obligation after the various obligations. Our ultimate aim and objective is to please Allah subhanho wa Taala that's our ultimate aim and objective but yes earning a livelihood the other extreme is what happens is that people think okay we do talk cool reliance upon Allah, we are people of Allah we allow and look after us. We rely upon Allah we have trust in Allah will make dua Allah and Allah will send provision from the sky and from the heavens, somebody will post some bananas from the letterbox and many will come. Now we're not of those people as well. We live with reality we deal with reality. And this is why the

00:12:37--> 00:13:17

messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that seeking of a halau provision is an obligation we have to work. We don't go to extremes that extreme where people have no objective becomes earning wealth. That's an extreme. And the other extreme is where people say well worship Allah will come in the masjid will sit in the first stuff in the first row. We'll just keep on worshiping Allah subhanho data, I will make dua and Allah will take care of all our affairs and we will work that's a wrong attitude to have as long as we are the balanced people. The Muslim Ummah is a balanced oma, because Erica jamnagar, omet and wasaga. We have made you a midazolam a balanced oma, we look at

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

things with moderation, we earn as much as we need to, but we ensure and we realize that our ultimate objective is not this life, it's the next line, and we earn money. And we earn a livelihood and we seek sustenance and provision because Allah has obligated us to do so. It's a responsibility and it's a duty for us to earn a livelihood for us, as men, for example, and husbands and fathers to provide for the family for the children. So we have to earn and that's why there's a lot of reward in earning a livelihood. But remember, halaal livelihood there's two Hadith in the center of your mama Timothy two famous Hadith. There's a hadith with a messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:14:02--> 00:14:22

A to Jo, Sharona Yama Yama de Fujairah illimani, taco bourassa, all the changes all the businessman, this is about halaal all the businessmen to djaro there'll be resurrected, there'll be raised on the Day of Judgment foresaw a sinful people

00:14:23--> 00:14:59

is rich don't get too scared. All the traders all the businessmen all the restaurant owners and takeaway people and all the people in factories and shops and everywhere all the traders on the Day of Judgment This is a Hudson Hudson Hudson sound howdy related by materiality soon, there'll be all your Sharona raised on the day of judgment as for sock for sock is a plural of first there'll be all sinful don't stop here Ill then carries on the Hadith the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in many Taka Obara masala except the one who

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

You know law number two, he was Barbara he was righteous in his dealings with sada and he was truthful in his dealings. The other Hadith in the same chapter, it also relates a similar type of Hadith,

00:15:13--> 00:15:42

wherein the picture is from the other angle here the exception everybody is sinful, except the few who are righteous and truthful and trustworthy. On the other hand, he is painting the picture from another angle, he says, A to A third or a sadu. The messenger sallallahu wasallam says a third usado Ameen manda Bina was at the Athena Shahada. He was sorry he a third, a tradesman, a businessman, a trader, a merchant, who is sadu truthful.

00:15:43--> 00:16:27

And he is a mean he is trustworthy. On the day of judgment, my Nabina he'll be raised with the prophets was the Athene and the righteous people. His resurrection will be with the Shahada, the marches was sorry he under pious righteous servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Look at these two Hadith. In other words, this hadith these two heads of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is dividing classification is dividing and categorizing and classifying the traders into two different categories. We have people who are doing trade people and most of us we are involved in business activities. Those of us who are involved in

00:17:32--> 00:17:37

Praise to Allah subhana wa Tada. We are honored and privileged to be here today, once again.

00:17:39--> 00:17:41

From Surat Al Asad to select another inshallah.

00:17:43--> 00:17:53

If you remember some of you who attended a previous talk of mine in this Masjid, where we talked about the obligation to the creation of Allah,

00:17:54--> 00:17:59

open a bar, the rights of the servants of Allah Subhana who died.

00:18:00--> 00:18:08

We talked about the importance of entering into Islam completely, totally, wholeheartedly and fully.

00:18:09--> 00:18:14

We talked about the verse of the Quran where Allah says, Yeah, you will lead in a minute Hello facil Mika.

00:18:15--> 00:19:04

Oh, you who believe enter into Islam fully. Don't take parts of the book of Allah and discard other parts of the book of Allah. Take Islam in its totality and act upon Islam, all the injunctions of the Quran and Sunnah. And I also briefly mentioned that there are different categories. There are different branches of the teachings of Islam. We have a caller ID we have a bird and we have Marcia Clark and marmelade. In the previous talk, we talked about more oshada social etiquettes how to deal with one another, how to live as family members and as relatives and as Muslims and as human beings. The whole talk was focused on social etiquettes an adult

00:19:06--> 00:19:55

and then I mentioned that the next branch is which is one of the very important branches of Islam is the branch of muamalat. More amateur means business transactions, financial transactions, and basically more Armada in Arabic. The linguistic meaning of morality is from the word Talmud. melotte is a branch we said we have a belief, we have a burden worshiping Allah, then we have more Ashura which we discussed, inshallah living with one another. And then we have a HELOC. This number five rules to do with the heart. And number four, this is what we're talking about today, which is more, a lot more Amanita Armada Armory in Arabic literally means to deal. But in the context when we are

00:19:55--> 00:20:00

categorizing the various rules of Islam, the fukada owner

00:20:00--> 00:20:55

Generally mean by the word more valid, not just any deal, or No Deal. But the financial dealings, business dealings, that the financial transactions, financial transactions that's what really the mean by more armor that and this is actually one of the branches from the teachings of Islam one of the very important branches of Islam gospel hardily for your baton battlefury the famous Hadith of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were in his states see King of hailo sustenance seeking of halau provision is halaal seeking it cuz earning a livelihood earning a hella livelihood, for he bargained for either it's an obligation after obligations, meaning that for a Muslim to seek

00:20:55--> 00:21:44

a Hallo livelihood, and earn a provision is an obligatory compulsory act. It's not something that's a worldly activity. It's an Islamic and a religious activity to seek Hello, earnings castable hilarie forgotten batteries and in this study, actually two things are quite significant. Number one, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa early he was he was sending them he says gospel Harare indication earning a halal livelihood, not just Hello people you listen to this Howdy. And they, of course rightly so they understand that earning a livelihood and earning money and working is a very important obligation. This is what Islam says yes, but there's a hidden indication here.

00:21:44--> 00:22:33

Not hidden is explicit. But some of us don't realize because our when we look at the Hadith, it's all about earning because we look at it from an angle earning money earning of Halla which means it's an obligation to avoid the Haram earning of a halal income. Earning halal livelihood is an obligation it's for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says from burden for EDA, and then he said it's an obligation after other obligations, which also signifies that this is not your aim, purpose goal of life. Your aim and purpose and goal of life is is to please Allah subhanho wa Taala your attention your focus should be on the next life. This life is a short life and we earn a

00:22:33--> 00:23:22

livelihood just to get by in this life. We don't earn to live in this world This world is temporary monetary gains money wealth is just something that takes us and you know makes us live this life that's it nothing else. We don't make it our objective of life to earn money when we don't even have time for anything else. Allah says in the Quran region, to Li empty gelatin wallaby urine and decree la cama Sala, these are people Allah is praising certain individuals he says, These are people whom business trade and sale and buying and selling does not stop them, does not make them negligent and neglectful from the real duties of their life, which is a karma to Sala offering Salam worshipping

00:23:22--> 00:23:43

Allah a Muslim has an ulterior goal. Another motive which is aka the next life earning of many is just something that gets you by in this life. And that's why to be so heavily engrossed in earning at the expense of one's religious activities and duties at the expense of even

00:23:46--> 00:23:57

giving attention to one's own family members. We live in a time today though people are so engrossed in earning money that they don't even have time to spend with their own children.

00:23:58--> 00:24:44

Seriously, there are people who are so engrossed in earning and working and with their jobs, they don't even have a time to have one meal with their family.

00:25:00--> 00:25:48

You will be far superior than the one who earns much more but is not happy still greedy, not content, local and even unworthy among the hub lepto acuna Lucha de minhag, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says greed is such a disease, that if the son of Adam has one value made of gold Hill seek and want two values of gold, and low if he has to Nevada 30,000 and want a third Valley. And then he said, Liam little jofa Ebony, in the Torah, nothing will will satisfy the stomach of the son of Adam accepts sand dust, which is the great, he'll just keep wanting more and more and more. And this is why we have to learn to be content, contentment, and that brings about

00:25:48--> 00:26:34

peace, manage money, doesn't bring peace, money, can't buy peace. People have a lot of money in this world. But still, there are people who are millionaires. But they have to take medicine to sleep at night. They literally have to take medication, they can't sleep, they have all the luxuries, the best bed and the best, you know, pillows, and the most beautiful of mansions in the midst of that mansion. They are not able to sleep more than an hour or two. They're frustrated, they're depressed, because many and melt wealth and mansion and none of them none of these things can ever bring peace into the heart. Many cannot buy peace. The only thing that can buy peace is contentment and the

equal levels of Hanover with the Rico law and basically law he taught me in Roku with the remembrance of Allah do hearts find contentment, we have to learn to be content. You know, this is actually one of the one of the ingredients to be happy in this world. We all want to be happy. Everybody wants to be happy in this world. One of the Golden ingredients to be happy in this world is to be content Riba be

00:27:01--> 00:27:19

the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to make a dua aloha manana De Luca sadder when a further when a man at the hospital Hello people who used to ask for five things this is a How do you think in the sooner tirmidhi will I ask of you health care well I further chastity

00:27:20--> 00:28:06

Hello homogeneous Luca Suharto will refer to a monitor trustworthiness Hausner good character, reliable coder to be content with destiny. Whatever Allah has given me, I am happy I'm content, even though it's less alive, where you have earned little but you have time to spend with your family with your children, you're at ease you have peace, you have tranquility is far, much better for your father in a better position where you don't you're earning and working day and night and you don't have no peace and no time to share with your family anything because ultimately the money itself is not going to do anything. It's that quality time that you can spend with your loved ones. So we need

00:28:06--> 00:28:10

to remember that this is the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:28:12--> 00:28:56

that gospel Hilary forgotten battle for Riba, seeking of Hela is an obligation after the various obligations. Our ultimate aim and objective is to please Allah subhanho wa Taala that's our ultimate aim and objective but yes earning a livelihood the other extreme is what happens is that people think okay we do talk cool reliance upon Allah, we are people of the of Allah we allow and look after us. We rely upon Allah we have trust in Allah will make dua and Allah will send provision from the sky and from the heavens, somebody will post some bananas from the letterbox and many will come. No, we're not of those people as well. We live with reality we deal with reality. And this is why

00:28:56--> 00:29:36

the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that seeking of a Hello provision is an obligation we have to work. We don't go to extremes, that extreme where people have no the objective becomes earning wealth. That's an extreme. And the other extreme is where people say will worship Allah will come in the masjid will sit in the first stuff in the first row. We'll just keep on worshiping Allah Subhana Allah, I will make dua and Allah will take care of all our affairs and we will work that's a wrong attitude to have as well. We are the Barents people. The Muslim Ummah is a balanced oma because Erica knows local omoton wasapi we have made you a middle of a barren stoma, we look at

00:29:36--> 00:29:59

things with moderation, we earn as much as we need to, but we ensure and we realize that our ultimate objective is not this life. It's the next line and we earn money and we earn a livelihood and we seek sustenance and provision because Allah has obligated us to do so it's our responsibility and it's a duty for us.

00:30:00--> 00:30:19

earn a livelihood for us, as men, for example and husbands and fathers to provide for the family for the children. So we have to earn and that's why there's a lot of reward in earning a livelihood. But remember how our livelihood there's two Hadith in the center of the mama Timothy two famous Hadith? There's a hadith with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:32:02--> 00:32:49

And he is a mean he is trustworthy. On the Day of Judgment abena he'll be raised with the prophets was the lien on the righteous people, His resurrection will be with the Shahada, the martyrs was farheen under pious, righteous servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Cadiz to Hades In other words, this howdy these two heads of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is dividing classification is dividing and categorizing, and classifying the traders into two different categories. We have people who are doing trade people, and most of us we are involved in business activities. Those of us who are involved in trading, there's only two categories that we could fit

00:32:49--> 00:33:28

ourselves in. There's no middle way here. This is what these two highlights are, say, You're either in box one, or box two in category one or category two, either you're in the category, if you're a good trader, then you're very good. And if you're a bad trader, then you're a very bad trader, there's no middle way. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, either you're you will be resurrected, on the day of judgment with all as a first step as a sinful individual. Or you will be with the M BIA and the righteous and the prophets and the martyrs and the righteous, and the city of pain and the truth with people. There's no middle way here. And this is quite quite.

00:33:31--> 00:34:12

This is something that we're really important and delicate, and something we really need to be careful about the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has divided the merchants and traders into two different categories and two different boxes in two different areas. Either that we have traders who are resurrected as sinful for sock individuals, or we have those who will be with the NBA, the NBA in the prophets, the righteous people, and the martyrs, the Shahada and the cider in and the truth was people. Now, from the two categories, I'm sure all of you and all of us, we want to be in that category where we are resurrected with the profits with the margins with the righteous people.

00:34:12--> 00:34:51

How do we do that? Because if we are not in that box, then we're gonna be in that category. If we're not in that box of the profits here, there's no choice in the middle of that, okay? We don't want to be with a profit. So we'll just be a bit down here. No, because there's no other category if you're not the profits and the righteous people as changes, then the other category is that you'll be resurrected as a facet as a sinful person. So we have to ensure we're in that category. How do we ensure that we are in that category? There's two things which are based on the news and the text of the Quran and Sunnah. They mentioned two things. Number one, for a person. The first there's two

00:34:51--> 00:35:00

things number one is the first thing is very simple. And the second point, and the second way how we get ourselves in that category, in

00:35:00--> 00:35:40

wherein we are with the traders and we are with Serbia with the prophets and the righteous and the martyrs. The first point is that we correct our intention. This is a very simple thing to do. We correct our intention, our intention should be that we are earning because Allah subhanho wa Taala has obligated for us to earn it's a form it's an obligation it's a duty to sort of responsibility. We need to earn a livelihood to provide for our family for our children for our spouses, we need to teach ourselves we need to provide for our children with the strength we get inshallah we will worship Allah will serve the deen of Allah will will will will, will do some headman for the deen of

00:35:40--> 00:36:20

Allah subhanho wa Taala will help people will give some in charity will given the path of Allah with all these righteous noble intentions. So before earning remember, Islam is such a beautiful religion that even our worldly activities become activities of dealing with just the changing of one's perspective. This is this is so unique. Not even our eating or drinking or sleeping, our walking our talking what ever we do. We just change our perspective, the way we look at it, we change our intention and intention is in the mind and the heart and near to Amarillo calm. It's not something we have to even say it verbally.

00:36:21--> 00:37:12

Abdullah Mubarak, one of the great imams of this ombre, who's a great Mahajan, and a great jurist and a great fapy as well as a great spiritual individual and Imam Abdullah who about the Allahu anhu he said roba amarrian severian to kabiru Nia, Baraka, amarin Kabir into subzero who Nia, sometimes you have a such as apparently, an act that seems a very small, very minute, something as small as maybe just picking up a dust from the carpet or picking up some dirt from the road, something very small, apparently, it seems a very small and something very insignificant. But the intention behind it makes it so huge and so great in the eyes of Allah subhanho data, that a person will be shocked

00:37:12--> 00:37:55

when he sees a reward for it in the next life, because there is a loss and is there is uncertainty behind it. And on the other hand, he says, well, the armoring capability, sometimes you have a major act. Apparently it seems that you've given 400,000 pounds to construct a budget. But the intention behind it is to show people the intention behind it is that so that people say well, we're a person he gives so much money, as charity, the intention behind is just name and fame. Major acts a person give two pounds. Remember, according to Allah numbers don't matter. Quantity doesn't matter Quality Matters. But Allah subhanho wa Taala someone gave two pounds, the laws and sincerity behind that.

00:37:56--> 00:38:42

If he had the claws, which the person who gave half a million didn't have, there is no good a person with two points that have far more reward. So he says sometimes we meet we carry out major activities. But the intention behind it makes it a small insignificant act according to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the to Hadith of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as I was saying that, this to two areas in which people fall into the first thing we need to do is make the intention, correct our intention, correct our intention. And number two, the second point is that what we do is we need to ensure that if we want to be in that category of people who are traded with

00:38:42--> 00:38:58

the prophets and ambia, and the righteous people, we have to ensure that our trade and business is in accordance with the rules of Islam. And I'm going to go through some points, which I think are very important for us to realize, for us to understand.

00:39:00--> 00:39:47

But it's very important, we earn hella livelihood brothers. And in order for us to be with the righteous people, for us to be with the prophets, and with the Shahada, and with the marches. We need to we need to earn halal sustenance. And remember how wrong is not just sinful, but it brings about, it brings about, it removes the Baraka from our world, from our homes from from our families. Remember, it's not just about the ingredients. It's about also the money that we use to purchase the item. Sometimes we look at ingredients. We look at an item Okay, Chris packet, e 49672, e 4396. Were so over obsessed with E numbers. But then you ask the brother, what's your job, I work in a bank.

00:39:47--> 00:40:00

You could be eating some dates and it'd be hard on by Halloween dates. Your Money Your work is in a bank, it doesn't matter. You involve the interest you can eat, you know, you can drink water, buy some water, and that'll be

00:40:00--> 00:40:45

Hold on for you. So we need some time to realize that it's it's the money the income that we provide even in a marriage many times on in marriage courses have discussed that the the sisters they need to actually, you know, ensure that the brother they want to marry is actually earning Hello livelihood is he able to provide you with Hello income financially support you with halaal income, not any type of income halaal income, check what his job is. And that's the way we get into the category of the profits and the righteous people. What on earth is three quarters of religion earning a livelihood is three quarters, or maybe one say one quarter if we say remember the four

00:40:45--> 00:41:02

different categories, we have a bird that we have more Arusha and we have a HELOC and we have more omelette. You know the books have a look at the books of Hadith. Look at the look at the Quran itself number one of our talks about the longest verse in the Quran. You know, the longest verse of the Quran is

00:41:04--> 00:41:25

the longest verse in the Quran, Allah goes into detail. Allah Subhana Allah does not even give us the details of prayer in the Quran. There's no way even in the Quran mentioned this for accardo salata Asada, we just performed nowhere in the Quran. But pick up the Quran Allah says, Allah Dena Manu the longest verse, idol Medina,

00:41:26--> 00:42:09

Medina Illa le musalman. For all you who believe when you take a credit transaction when you take a loan from somebody, to a fixed time, but to boohoo write it down, make a contract. Person A has taken 20 pounds, even 10 pounds, even five pounds from Person B and will pay off on this time. One of the greatest sins a person can leave this world with is a debt that is unpaid. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said you will furnish shahidi kulu them been Illa de a martyr in the path of Allah we talk about the whole world we want to you know sort out the whole world and we want to give our lives and be martyred in the path of Allah. The Messenger of Allah lo it was something

00:42:09--> 00:42:53

said you can go in Jihad and get martyred. But if you've left one penny that you pay someone that won't be forgiven in the next life, imagine such a severe Howdy. The martyr everything is forgiven except Illa de the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would make dua he would seek the protection and refuge of Allah from Allah today. And this is why the scholars mentioned is actually not a good idea to take a loan unless absolutely necessary. Without a need a person should not get into the business of taking loans unless genuinely you are in need of give taking a loan. Otherwise just live your life. Don't get a credit card live on your debit card.

00:42:54--> 00:43:17

These credit cards did the disastrous and that is a whole chapter it's a whole game live and this is why people get into problems later on people get depressed because they're living beyond their means is Tom says don't live beyond your means. This is a whole chapter and really it's recommended not to have credit cards unless you definitely need it don't have credit cards just have debit cards.

00:43:18--> 00:43:23

We should live with what we have the longest verse in the Quran Allah says yeah, you will

00:43:24--> 00:44:09

be dealing with oh you believe when you take a loan write it down will live to be no one will either. Let the just person write it amongst you. This is Person A taken a loan from Person B will pay off on this date on this time. This is the longest verse in the Quran called Ayatollah Medina. The longest verse in the Quran is not about photocatalysis it's not about wearing a hat. It's not about wearing a wearing a thong. It's about what it's about. Credit transactions. Mr. Mohammed Abdul hasn't heard of Mr. Mohammed great among the students of remarkable hanifa radi Allahu anhu. Mr. Mohammed Al Hassan, a Shea Burnie. Somebody asked him said, Oh, Imam, you've written many books,

00:44:09--> 00:44:52

limit them to pursue the Sharia. You've compiled and authored many books. He was an author of great books. We don't see any of your books that you've compiled regarding reserved Zohar is like another word for soul, which means absence from the world, you know, being a righteous person being a pious individual, someone who was really, really godly, someone who's who's a really close friend of a loss of Hello data, we don't see a book of the souls of yours. He says, haven't you seen my book? So which one? Have you seen a book a taboo or the book of business transactions? That's the soul of the spirituality. That spirituality within spirituality today is having a big show of hands of handler

00:44:52--> 00:45:00

and the handler that is good we should read before doing all of that and long as the car on instead of far on this recitation and that recitation, but we

00:45:00--> 00:45:11

Got some money that we owe someone and we haven't paid it on time. None of this is gonna be of any benefit. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in a hadith of Bokhari Mata Luna honey you boo

00:45:12--> 00:45:13

masala honey you

00:45:16--> 00:45:19

just listen to this howdy ma palani you boo,

00:45:20--> 00:46:02

the one who has many despite having money he doesn't pay the money back to the one who gave him the debt. This is the one who debt dilly dally is muffled means dilly dally, you know, it's just here. I'll pay you tomorrow. Tomorrow. Okay, brother, McConnell avani. This person is guilty of the sin of volume oppression. We talk about the whole world of pressing the Muslim woman. You're the first person oppressing the Muslim ummah. You're talking about people oppressing Muslims. If you're not paying your loans on time. That's one of the greatest of oppressions and suppressions in the eyes of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is what we call financial goals.

00:46:04--> 00:46:49

This is what we call a financial oppression, economic oppression. So we need to be very careful, Mr. Mohammed, what did he say? Have you seen my book on kita boo boo. The book of business transactions. This is what the sofa is all about. You can't have spirituality. You can't have this beautiful. You can't rectify and purify your soul and your heart. If your dealings monetary dealings are not in line with the teachings of Allah and His Messenger Salah low are you sending your lesbian ermine? hula Kuru Amara combina con bill Barton. Allah says do not consume your wealth amongst yourselves unlawfully Illa and takuna t Jonathan and Todd unless it's through trade which is mutually agreed

00:46:49--> 00:47:04

layyah Hindu Maria Marie Muslim Ella BTB nafsa min Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a another Muslim his world is not halal for you unless it is with his notjust with His permission with a contentment of his heart

00:47:05--> 00:47:13

Subhan Allah imagine the messenger sallallahu Ellison did not use the word permission for For me it is not hard to take the brothers wealth

00:47:14--> 00:47:18

except not with His permission contentment

00:47:19--> 00:47:55

there's a different difference between permission and contentment. He might give me permission but you might not be happy in his heart. We go to a shop with a brother you know put down eight pound honors five pound five pound you know, we just, I suppose operate on and he's looking at a big queue and this guy's eating my head. Okay, just take it Come on. We've actually stole his money or his wealth is haram. This is what this hadith means. Yeah, hello murmur a Muslim unless you know there's a place where the person like for example, it's normal practice and custom that before they even see your shoes, they look at you, they look at your shoes and double the price. Okay? Some shopkeepers

00:47:55--> 00:48:35

do that they've doubled the price. And they know that you're going to go from 12 to 12 from 24 to 12 is really going to go there and you know, it's and that's fine. But sometimes, you know, you're really pressurizing the seller. You're really pressurizing the seller. To decrease the price, the higher the price the messenger sallallahu Sallam says, it is not helpful for you to take the wealth of another person, except with not just his permission, but the contentment of his heart. So this is what Mr. Mohammed said this is this is spirituality. This is piety, to have ensuring that your dealings are according to the teachings of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam And

00:48:35--> 00:49:03

remember, you know this has an impact on our a burden. This has an impact in our worship. If our dealings are not in line with the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah our Eva that it has an impact on it. We can offer Salah but we won't attain the horseshoe and the hoodoo and the spirituality in our worshiping life our dealings are not correct with other people even our do ours on supplicated we ask all the time all law you know this, Mama,

00:49:04--> 00:49:24

Mama we say mean to Allah is not helping us. I wasn't accepting my daughter I have checked the hadith of Sahih al Bukhari and elsewhere the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam talked about an individual it's a long Hadith that there was a person who had 101 reasons many reasons for his dog for his supplication to be accepted.

00:49:25--> 00:49:59

He was a traveler, he was in a dish shelf state and he said you're up be used the word you're up be. Roger Lewin ash Arthur abara yamu dia de la sama. raising his hands do our with raising one's hands was greatly accepted. And yarrabah he was crying out to Allah. But his word to our was not accepted. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that despite all these reasons for his daughter to be accepted, one mother Amma who had on his food was Hara Matura boo hoo ha Rama is

00:50:00--> 00:50:10

Drink was hot a woman who harem clothing is her meaning her money to use clothes to buy purchase clothes. Woman Amma who hamano Mashallah Boko Haram, a woman

00:50:12--> 00:50:42

with her on his nourished on her arm for Anastasia with Eric, how can his daughter ever be accepted? Who's saying this the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he has a negative impact on our, our Salah, our extension of the Quran, our worshipping of Allah subhana wa Tada. And remember, it's very difficult to rectify. But if there's a problem between us and Allah, we can just raise our hands and say oh law shed a few tears and ask forgiveness Allah forgiven.

00:50:43--> 00:50:45

them become another Mullah Omar forgives.

00:50:46--> 00:50:56

Very easy. But if it's something between me and some another servant of Allah, Allah will not forgive until I don't go and pay back the loan or the debt or seek forgiveness from him.

00:50:57--> 00:51:34

is very difficult for a bird very, we have to be very careful. We rather be neglectful, we shouldn't be but rather if there's a choice of being neglectful between Rococo la Coco for a bad then rather we be neglectful in cocoa colada and open a bar and this is the reason why I say a birdie mocha de mon Allahu Allah. Because here you need forgiveness not from just from a law but even the person whom you have wronged. So it's very important, especially monetary matters more or less. So, the two categories the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned the two categories. What did he say?

00:51:35--> 00:52:18

That we have traders who will be resurrected as sinful people and our traders will be resurrected with the profits in order to be with the Prophet number one I said intention needs to be rectified number two, the way we do our business, the way we earn should be in a halal manner, in a manner that pleases Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it has to be in accordance with the rules of the Quran and Sunnah. We must ensure we do not do any unlawful activity. These are the two things. So number one, the intention and number two, the way the method of business and the method of trade, has to be Halla. Unfortunately, we live in a time regarding wish the messenger

00:52:18--> 00:52:35

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there's a hadith in Sahih al Bukhari he Allah Nazism and now you Belial Morrow Muhammad Minh who Amina Amina, from a time will come on the people where they will not care where they've taken the money from people will not be

00:52:37--> 00:52:41

concerned as to where they earn their wealth from

00:52:42--> 00:53:24

Amina. I mean, whether it's from her on people won't care. This is what the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and this week, we are living in a time people because you see the objective is to earn now however I can get my hands on this money this wealth whether through halal means O'Hara means doesn't matter. I need to get my hands on it full stop. Because the objective is love the aim and objective as well greed, the love of the world heads which is greed which is a disastrous, severe spiritual disease of the heart. And first we need to rectify that that spiritual disease and then we need to ensure that our dealings now many things we are involved in I'll just mention one or

00:53:24--> 00:53:26

two things that just came to mind.

00:53:28--> 00:54:01

One of the greats when when people are dealing and transacting one of the major heroin activities, Riba, one of the major harms, interest being involved in interest is absolutely categorically, totally forbidden in Islam. Allah there is no other sin that has been given a severe warning as the interest of the Riba has been given this declaration of mood from Allah His Messenger fell into Fallujah, as far as I know the harrowby mina la hora su de

00:54:03--> 00:54:45

la was a Roma Dotty Amina Reba enquanto mini leave arriba if you don't remember Allah and His Messenger are declaring war against you. Reba is a major haraam. A major it's worse it's a continues to boot something which is how long in an absolute Qatari manner decisive manner, there is no doubt there are no to two opinions about it. Right? There's no two opinions. It's just like Xena, it's just like or even worse. It's like backbiting it's like alcohol consumption. People say oh, we live in a it's difficult to get a house etc. Okay, it's difficult. But if you're in a state where it's like difficult, like you would drink alcohol. Likewise, if you're in that state where you would

00:54:45--> 00:55:00

drink alcohol, if you're in that state, take a house, a mortgage. There's no difference. There's is there a difference between alcohol consumption and interest? No difference. So yes, Islam says I'm not allowed to be harmed Mahabharat when you're in absolute dire necessity, and in

00:55:00--> 00:55:24

dire situation. prohibitions become prohibited in Islam from an era where if somebody is dying out of hunger, eat pork, somebody is dying out of thirst, drink alcohol, if it becomes permissible, somebody is going to die on the road in freezing cold because he doesn't have a shelter over his head to be around for him to get involved in interest. Otherwise not. There's no difference between alcohol consumption and between

00:55:25--> 00:55:59

Xena and between Riba there's no difference. There's no difference whatsoever. So Riba is one of them severe, severe substance, and there's numerous Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to the point he says lon Allahu urquiola Riba wamu killer who was sure he they he wore karate bow. In other Riba. He said, he home Salah when Allah curse is on the take of interest, the giver of interest, the witness to it, the scribe, the writer.

00:56:00--> 00:56:14

All of them are cursed by Allah. Imagine that Allahu Allah Riba will looky loo, the witness, the one who is witnessing the transaction, the one who's writing the transaction of interest.

00:56:15--> 00:56:40

The one the one working in a bank, in a in a financial institution, a person working in a bank, it's hard on john, he's to try his best to get out of the job as quick as possible, because his daily being in is involved in interest based transactions and being part of any interest based transaction based on this Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is unlawful

00:56:42--> 00:57:27

even working in insurance companies not permissible because it involves interest it involves something else which is also clearly hard on Mr. gangly. Yes, aluna calamari when they ask you about alcohol consumption will amaze myself gambling, chancing a mob. This is haram as well. Many Muslims buy lottery tickets, how can they do that? People go on bet. You know, there was I think it was racing today or something somebody was saying there's a big grand nationals on the night that Muslims going in these, you know, Ladbrokes and they can't fight. How old are we law? How can a Muslim ever get involved in the sin of gambling? It takes away your Eman gambling, one of the major

00:57:27--> 00:58:03

harm activities, one of the major haram activities and there are other forms of gambling as well which sometimes we overlook things like for example, you know, sometimes they give these tickets and things like that we have to be very careful, check it out with the qualified people on the scholars who may be some shows or something and say, okay, purchase a ticket and you're paying one pound whenever you're paying money, and then you might you have a chance of winning something a lot of it is gambling. Sometimes people you know, there's quizzes and shows, make a phone call, no normal phone rate is 10 p a minute or five minutes, but this one costs one one pound 50 why the rest of the

00:58:03--> 00:58:19

money is gambling, all the money collected purchasing of the price. There are forms of gambling and we need to acquaint ourselves with the rulings of this. And there are many other things. This is all Halla income but fees in the previous gathering I talked about briefly entered the top a top three.

00:58:21--> 00:58:25

Top three is one of the greatest sins a Muslim can involve himself in

00:58:26--> 00:58:35

wailuku toffee in the last juice of the Quran, what does Allah say? Ye lil mo toffee alladhina either? Katara naseous tofu.

00:58:36--> 00:58:39

Caillou was in New York zero.

00:58:42--> 00:58:48

Risk well on to be well and to be who the people of faith who are the people

00:58:50--> 00:58:50

who have

00:58:51--> 00:58:57

been allies talking about the people who commit the sin of the thief. These are the people

00:58:58--> 00:59:03

who are in us when they give people through measurement.

00:59:04--> 00:59:19

When sorry when they take from people through measurement, yes stole food they ensure that take every grain every drop. What do you got? home was a new home soon. When is the time to give to people through measurements and weight.

00:59:20--> 00:59:22

Then they give a bit less allowances.

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

And

00:59:25--> 00:59:42

don't these people realize that they resurrected on the day of judgment? You may or may not sooner? IRA me when all of mankind and humanity will stand before Allah and will have to give recognition for every ounce and every penny and every inch of the activities.

00:59:43--> 01:00:00

This isn't Sorrell moto 15 but if you know the people of Sri peace be upon him it is solid sleep. They were known. They were involved in many sins but they were known for the sin sin of what giving less through measurement and weight losses in the Koran many places

01:00:01--> 01:00:31

See, don't shy peace be upon him. He used to tell his people. He said he called me he said, Oh full Kyle was he knew Bill prestasi mustafi give full measurement and weigh with balance, weight. Make sure your measurements and your wages it's full, give people they do was you know with a spouse and mustafi while at NASA shell don't don't decrease the things that people when you give them when you sell them

01:00:33--> 01:00:35

that akula masuri

01:00:36--> 01:00:57

and then they will known for the sinful activity and because of that they did not listen to Shall I peace be upon him because of that Allah punish them and that punishment is in the Quran. Allah says that the boohoo they rejected his dour, they rejected his mercy how to stop the sin of giving less

01:00:59--> 01:01:01

for caribou for our

01:01:02--> 01:01:16

other boo mula. They were overtaken by the punishment of what of, of the role of the cloud the canopy, the some of the commentators the officer of the Quran explained this this

01:01:17--> 01:01:59

punishment that Allah sent for three days burning scorching heat into the village into their town because of this sinful activity they were involved in and they were gasping for water It was really hot. And then after three days a cloud This is Lola is one of the commentaries have mentioned this this is this is this particular is, is not actually in the Quran. The Quran only says your moolah, but the commentary which the commentators the Mufasa rune of the Quran, when they mentioned they said the Lola means Allah sent a small cloud, which had breeze in it, all the people just felt so relieved. After three days we've got some breeze. So they all went and assembled under the cloud and

01:01:59--> 01:02:06

suddenly the cloud changed into burning fire in cost them with fire and Allah punish them because of the sin of the thief.

01:02:10--> 01:02:12

The thief also includes

01:02:13--> 01:02:17

also includes what employers and employees do.

01:02:18--> 01:02:25

Employee are not giving full salary on time is wages of the employee, active sinful activity, how do you

01:02:26--> 01:02:27

measure sound? Howdy?

01:02:29--> 01:02:31

JIRA, JIRA, who can

01:02:33--> 01:02:38

give you employees wages before his sweat becomes dry. Don't make him wait.

01:02:39--> 01:02:55

Before his sweat has become dry, he's finished his job gifts, salary wages on on time. Don't Don't just abuse people just because of whatever you know, give them two point 50 less than the minimum wage, don't take extra work from people and give them less.

01:02:57--> 01:03:19

And also the worker, the employee, that's for the employer, the employee as well. That means the worker he needs to work with due diligence. It is actually part of this thought fief, giving less in weight and measurement is also working less. You have a job to work in an office and you're checking up on emails all day long.

01:03:20--> 01:03:42

If you've got an understanding with your boss, fine, if you don't, every minutes that we spent in other word activity, we have to give the wages back haraam money coming into our pockets, every minute allowing questions for every minute of our time of work that we worked in accordance or not.

01:03:44--> 01:03:46

people sell things items.

01:03:47--> 01:04:32

You know, saying that it's pure advertising is pure items many Muslims involved in in and these are Muslims when I took him on on Muslims, food deception has become unfortunately today, the whole mark of Muslims. We pray that Allah changed the whole world if we are deceiving everybody else how he's going to help us manage Russia for a minute. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever cheats is not from us is not even from the Muslims according to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fraud and deception. People use force, you know, fraud certificates. People deceive others sell items, advertising them to be what? To be pure. There's a hadith of Sunni Blue murgia when the

01:04:32--> 01:04:34

messenger salallahu alayhi wa sallam he said

01:04:35--> 01:04:59

whoever sells Mamba ibon lamb you begin Who? Someone sells an item with a defect and he doesn't disclose it. He doesn't tell the customer lumea selfie Mattila he was an old man. He remains in the anger and wrath of Allah and the angels keep cursing him. This is a hadith of Sanofi merger Islamic

01:05:00--> 01:05:21

Not just about keeping the beard brothers This is also Islam ensuring you know Mr. Abu hanifa the great mom, a lot of them people like to call him but I do love anime lovely pleased with him. Many people claim we are followers of Imam Abu hanifa the Allahu anhu the great team and you know what used to be in business and trade on in the beginning that he

01:05:22--> 01:06:02

concentrated on of course Falcon and teaching of Dean and searching and investigating and researching became a side business. He had a shop and he had told his you know, the people working in his shop that never sell anyone any item with a defect with an item except that you disclose it. So one day he went to the shop and the employee the employee was working there the person selling that his shop, and there was a cross and He knew about it that they had a cloth that came from somewhere else and it had some kind of defects in it. So remember what I said what happened about that class, the one that came with the defect, so just yesterday I sold it, did you mention to the

01:06:02--> 01:06:06

customer the defect, he said I completely forgot

01:06:07--> 01:06:32

how lower quality labella he sent him and said other people throughout the whole town to go and search and find the customer. Finally after four or five days they mentioned to they they were able to identify and find the customer and then they asked him to look in the told him that there is a defect in it. If you wanted to keep it if you don't want it we're ready to give your money back.

01:06:33--> 01:06:36

This is Imam Abu hanifa one of the great scholars of the subcontinent a

01:06:38--> 01:06:47

lot of people from the subcontinent have heard of one of the great chefs of the subcontinent. Hakeem will oma the great Wiseman of the community. Hunan Shepperton Rahim Allah.

01:06:48--> 01:07:04

He was a spiritual guide, a great manifester, a great Mahadev, a puppy a jurist, a righteous individual, author of 1000 books, 1000s of students and 1000s of disciples.

01:07:06--> 01:07:43

Once one of his disciple whom he had actually given ijazah, to further the teachings of Diem, who himself kind of became a shape. Once he came to visit him. He asked him, How did you come? came by train? He had his son with him said you to bring your son with you said yes. He's asking how did your son Come come with? You said yes. Did you come by train? Yes. So how much did you pay the ticket price? Imagine the questions. not asking about did you do mamula yesterday? Did you do tahajjud? Did you do stuff? are none of those questions? not checking his beard, not looking at his thought was one of the questions is hakimullah.

01:07:44--> 01:07:50

Did you pay full for your son's ticket? How much? How much fair? Did you pay?

01:07:52--> 01:08:03

He said, Oh, half price ticket. So what's the rule? I thought How old is your son said he's 13. But he gets away for 12. So I paid half price. Because the rule was from 13. You pay the full price.

01:08:04--> 01:08:30

He said Oh, he's 13. But he got away. I said he's 12. He said La La quwata illa Billah. You all forget being you know, giving you just he revoked his ijazah he took the job back, said you're a foster. Let's not being a chef. You're guilty of fraud of lying of deception of theft of robbery and 101 sins. How can you even consider yourself to be a spiritual individual impossible.

01:08:32--> 01:08:57

The same Hakeem Aloma molana sridhara mala, he used to ensure when he used to travel he was telling students, when you go and travel by train, there used to be a rule that you can take certain amount of luggage, but if you have extra you have to pay for it. People you know bribe and this and that probably but major sin or Russia will mirtha Shakira who Murphy not the messenger sallallahu Sallam says that give off the bribe and the take of bribe both on the federal health law service. So

01:08:59--> 01:09:03

he was hit. Once he was traveling himself, Chef, a chef returned.

01:09:05--> 01:09:20

He went he was a known figure. Everybody knew him and he was waiting his luggage to pay extra money. God came said sure you you know you don't need to do more. Here I am Here I am in control in charge of things. Take everything you don't have to pay anything.

01:09:21--> 01:09:54

So he said to me so how long you're going to be here? Said I'm here to the next station. But don't worry the next guy that comes out tell him he'll take over everything care of you. Don't worry about it. This is how long will you be with me said here Don't worry until where your destination is. hills will be there his until the train ends. Because I need to go somewhere else this way. Because I need to go into the grave will that God can we meet to the grave as well. I need to go to Allah will that God take care of my things when I'm by Allah. He said you're not in ownership of this train. You can't make the decisions. Just you don't he doesn't belong to you. You're just an

01:09:54--> 01:09:59

employee. And he made the guy's eyes opened and he paid the full price.

01:10:00--> 01:10:17

For his luggage, this is Dean and this is Islam and this is what we are being taught traveling and there's a hadith you know lying we said foreign deception line has become one of the major activities in business and trade in this day and age.

01:10:19--> 01:10:22

Line is a major sin anyway i a terminal.

01:10:23--> 01:10:39

One of the signs of being a hypocrite is a head does occur when he speaks he speaks a lie with one or the other with a two minute horn with a horse on the verge of the fourth thing mentioned another ID for lying, people have false medical certificates.

01:10:42--> 01:10:51

How wrong this line is not just verbally with your mouth, going to the doctor and getting a false if the doctor knows he is sinful and you are sent

01:10:52--> 01:11:08

false medical certificates, false Character Reference certificates, false testimony, Shahada to Zoo the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this is from the Kabbalah major sins just like alcohol consumption, just like Xena, just like adultery.

01:11:09--> 01:11:41

This is mineral Kaaba. Otherwise you heard it was zoo, giving false testimony. false testimony. There's a hadith in Sahih al Bukhari the messenger sallallahu Sallam said, When two people buy and sell for inside a car, when if they are both truthful, what they enter and they are open about everything. I'm selling you this they are truthful, you're selling a car, you say everything clearly. They are both truthful and they are both clear and frank and open Bukola homophobia Hema

01:11:42--> 01:12:24

Allah places Baraka and blessings in the trade. And then the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Wayne curbar were katama However, if they lied, and if they hide facts moochie cut Baraka to be a Hema the Baraka the blessings of the business is vanished Allah takes destroys it. Allah removes any Baraka there's a hadith in the Sonata fremantlemedia selasa to three types of people young guru Allahu la him Yeoman Mati while I use a key him, Allah will not even look at them on the Day of Judgment alone will not purify them what a human element they have severe punishment. Howdy sound has it in the center of it momentarily.

01:12:26--> 01:12:34

What does he say? The messenger sallallaahu Edison said three people aluminum will musk Blue Moon Philippoussis Arthur who will halophilic

01:12:36--> 01:13:14

I'll talk about just a third when the time is short. One of the three people that alone will not even look at on the day of judgment and punish them severely is the one who sells his goods with a false oath will lie you brother I bought it for two pounds for you it's 250 it's just for you this month it's absolutely wrong if you didn't buy for that much. You have to Don't tell him if you don't want to tell the price only for your brother only for you Mashallah for you is this machine you don't want to my teacher chef.us money however the line was relating from his father to show him a lot when they first moved to Karachi Pakistan they said they used to have a local groceries and

01:13:14--> 01:13:35

every time we used to go to Mr. Say share you For you For you it's only this much for you so after two years we found that it was really only for us you know what I mean by really was he was taking extra keys to every time they still go to the shop and they said don't do it for us do it for you it's this much after two years when they found out the other prices and other shops they really found out that he was charging them double

01:13:37--> 01:13:41

he was charging for one year double the price holy for you this much deception.

01:13:42--> 01:13:45

This is this is how long or how long means of

01:13:46--> 01:14:35

of earning many, many Muslims are involved in the business and trade out. How can they be shade of alcohol of license shops? When a Hola Hola Hola, hola. Mati. Jara, token Hama absolutely filthy money. any money that is gained has to all be given away to the extremely poor you can even someone makes it older today, and they have 50,000 pounds that they've earned through the sale of alcohol. They cannot use a penny from it otherwise, they Toba is not accepted. It's haraam money, it's filthy money. And remember, it's got no Baraka, no blessings in it anyway, even if you keep it, you will not be happy because Allah has not placed Baraka, Allah when he removes the Baraka he removes that

01:14:35--> 01:14:58

that contentment and the tranquility from that wealth. You can have the money physically, but you won't have that peace of mind and you will not have that tranquility. So remember that something is no go area you cannot sell, buy and sell alcohol stuff. There's also a lot of other things that the messenger sallallahu even said I mentioned things like Google heart or under hoodie, he said Tanaka rockband

01:15:00--> 01:15:02

laya Bo burden Helder,

01:15:03--> 01:15:47

a person should not go. You know, in the olden times, people from outside of villages used to come to the city. Some people used to go to them quickly and buy everything. Number one is to deceive them. Oh, in the city, the prices for this much give everything to me deception. And another reason was that they would come gather hood and this is what we call the car, electric car or Maroon, the one who guards and the hoods and praise PR II why on the vulnerability of the other people and how creates a monopoly and then gathers all this food items, basic needs and necessities of people and then comes to a state where nobody has it. And then he takes it out and then he increases the price.

01:15:47--> 01:16:04

He wants to harm people. This person is cursed, according to the Hadith of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And I mentioned about loans and debts Be very, very careful not only your balloon, we have to really ensure there are many other things to say what time is 4750.

01:16:05--> 01:16:06

Except

01:16:07--> 01:16:13

for 52 we have to be very, very careful. There are many other things, many things life are another thing

01:16:14--> 01:16:16

within the family of the household.

01:16:17--> 01:16:37

We don't realize one of the great, you know, the responsibility of a Muslim is to ensure that the dealings are clear, cut, clear cut, make sure everything's clear. You have a family business, there's a saying of some early scholars Sahaba very, not a Hadith, but to say

01:16:38--> 01:16:45

some sense of Hadees but most likely, it's not a sound Howdy, Tasha but the meaning is correct. dasheroo can

01:16:46--> 01:17:26

live like brothers, with the AMA Luca a journey but transact like strangers. Be very clear. Even if you have a family business. You know, in the family, you have a business, the father starts the business, one son graduates and then he comes and joins the business. In what capacity is he working? Does he have a share in the business? Is he an employee, whereas wages and salary or is he just voluntary, helping the dad the father? Nothing's clarified. We tell them. So family matters. Okay. Today's family matters. After 15 years you have a massive dispute and it happens then they can run into the other man the shakes on the move to the fatwa Listen, nothing's clarified. When the

01:17:26--> 01:18:12

father passes away, inheritance issues, major disputes arise, because nothing was clarified. Your pert you're building a house a property. I had a case recently, two, three months ago, a bill house was being built. Major disputes, brothers are not talking to brothers, lifelong enemies, blood brothers. Why? Because when they purchase that when they built the house, nothing was clarified. Whether one party was giving a loan, or was it a share? If it was a loan, then you give the exact amount back. If it was a 20% share, then it's the market value and they get 20% who's giving money in what capacity? Be very careful clarifying your dealings clarification is one of the most

01:18:12--> 01:18:23

important things for a Muslim that are sure to carry one live like brothers but transact like strangers. Everything right? It Be frank be open about all the dealings.

01:18:25--> 01:18:29

And then there are other issues like mudaraba you know, people they do investments.

01:18:30--> 01:19:09

They give money in an investment. People want the cake and they want to eat it at the same time. You know what that means? People want to give money. My principal amount is guaranteed brother but give me profit as well. If there's no profit, you have to give me my money back that's Haram in Islam says if you're investing is profit or loss, you take the risk. When you get married, you get the benefit, but you also get the wrath of your wife. That's the difference between Xena which is only benefit upsets you don't have to live with them. That's the difference between Bay and river and Xena Anika. You invest money. It's based on profit and loss. Your Money is not guaranteed your

01:19:09--> 01:19:23

principal amount is not guaranteed. The moment you have that condition that your principal amount is guaranteed. That's the moment with any extra pound or Penny is not profit. It's interest and it's a river.

01:19:24--> 01:19:59

When you give a loan to someone when your money is guaranteed it becomes a loan automatically as soon as your money is guaranteed. It's a loan, whatever you want to call it, you can call it sidecar but it's alone it's current anyone gives you anything extra in return it's interest it's a rubber and it's wrong with these are issues we need to learn about them say that Amaro bla bla bla and who banned people from the market? You know when he became the halifa omaruru haha. He said whoever does not learn the facts of business and trade

01:20:01--> 01:20:44

hulan swana he must not enter our markets. You want to come and trade in our markets and Omar said, go and learn the fickle boo he will not go and learn the facts and the rules of business and trade. And then just general moral ethics. You know, the Sahaba the lava from this spread Islam we want to talk about the Sahaba there are cases read the history, there was a case was the harbor of the Allahu anhu the companions they went to different parts of the world. There's one Sahabi has a shop here is a trader, some of them went as merchants not to do that our in the path of Allah as merchants, as traders, we can go the whole world and do Dawa, and preach and make our but then we

01:20:44--> 01:21:21

our dealings are haram or we are taking loans or not paying and we are involved in theft and robbery and deception and fraud and the greatest cheaters and then we have the greatest beard and we want to preach Islam is not going to work like that. The Sahaba the Allahu anhu. They went as traders, and one of them opened a shop a customer came. I said good. Can you go and buy for my friend down there? said you have the same you have the item said yes, I have it. What's the price? same price is that? Why don't you sell it to me? So no, no go and buy from him? Why don't you say? I say he said that? Look, we've both opened our shops at the same time in the morning. Since morning. I've already had

01:21:21--> 01:21:27

three or four customers I've seen my brother that he's not had no customer I want my brother to also get the profit that I get.

01:21:28--> 01:22:16

People would become Muslims by looking at this practice of the Sahaba these are moral ethics we have the rules. And then we have moral ethics. There's a hadith to Hadith Sahih al Bukhari and with these two, there's a Hadith of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Rahim Allah who radula somehow either somehow either start off somehow in October amazing Heidi, the chapter title heading, which you mama Buhari or the Allahu anhu brings bourbon the chapter hula to was summer, how to fill the chapter in regards to be in regards to being easy, being gentle when you buy and sell, be gentle, don't be aggressive, if that's the title, and then he said the messengers of Allah Horus

01:22:16--> 01:22:37

and said the Hadith, Allah have mercy on the man who is some head with a twist, gentle when he buys, who is gentle when he sells, who is gentle what he's doing when he demands is right. Even when training Be gentle, don't be aggressive. Don't, you know don't argue Don't yell in the

01:22:39--> 01:23:20

center of the Shemitah of the messenger sallallahu it was said and one thing mentioned is lahmacun Sahaba and Phil swap, he never used to yell in the market. So that's one hadith of Sahil Buhari and the last hadith of Sahara Buhari, which I will end this talk with is where the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he mentioned that there was a man Colonel Roger Lune, Judah Yunus who would give loans to people when the time is to come to give further mercy run. When you see a people that this person is very, you know, in not in a good state. Things are tight for him. He already fits. Yeah, and he would tell his young people who would work for him, he was a big businessman. He's to have a

01:23:20--> 01:23:51

lot of money and give everybody loans. He used to see the people in genuine difficulty. They can't pay it in time. So he told his people who worked for him to look when you see a genuine person who genuinely doesn't have anything to pay this back with. He said the jail was one who just forgive him, La La La Jolla, the jail was on maybe alumni forgive us in the next life. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that because of this, on the day of judgment in the next five, Allah forgive all his sins and entity mindjet these are these are parts of Islam and this is what Islam is about. inshallah I knew this

01:23:53--> 01:23:55

was about 100
