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

praising Allah Subhana Allah and sending immense greetings and salutations upon the final prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early was seldom,

00:00:09--> 00:00:12

we find that the bitter fruits

00:00:14--> 00:01:04

of arrogance that we find what leads or begins to stem forward in carrying out various other actions, or various other atrocities or the sins. And as we mentioned, in general at one sin leads on to another sin. So, a person should be vigilant regarding their sins, the Hadith inside Muslim Imam Ahmed, that a person travels in a journey a group of individuals traveled together. When it comes to cook their meals together, each individual brings a branch or a twig, and they ignite a fire and they begin to burn the pot or cook their meal. Every single twig plays a role in that fire. And that is the descriptive nature of morality of sins, that every single sin leads on to my love

00:01:04--> 00:01:15

bit to another sin or collection of sins, till eventually the person may Allah forbid is destroyed by the carrying out of their own sins. And thus we find that amongst

00:01:16--> 00:01:24

the repercussions of arrogance that we find is an element of a person thinking that they are rightly deserving,

00:01:25--> 00:02:00

that the wealth and the property or the position that they have, it's something that belongs to them. They deserve to be given this and it deserves to carry out whatever they want to do with that which in essence, Allah Subhana Allah has bestowed upon the individual person begins to feel that they serve self sufficient, they have no need of people around them, or they've achieved whatever they achieve by their own selves. That is a common sickness inside the society that we find. When people begin to achieve something inside their life.

00:02:01--> 00:02:14

They fail to forget what maybe the history may have been. And you read a famous Hadith of the three individuals, the blind, the one suffering with leprosy, the one who lost his hair inside Rio de Sala hain.

00:02:15--> 00:02:19

How these three individually tested and two of them became arrogant

00:02:20--> 00:02:29

thinking this is tribe upon tribe, family upon family, we've never been in an impoverished state. We've never been poor. We've always been reached

00:02:30--> 00:02:40

when a beggar came and asked him for something for some food, and, and a rare Hello a form of BS to carry out his journeys on food. They refused,

00:02:41--> 00:02:50

because they felt that they were self sufficient. That would never they were never in a position of need, like this individual call of duty to Allah illman.

00:02:52--> 00:02:52

Indeed,

00:02:54--> 00:03:03

in dw given this knowledge of a given his wealth and his knowledge and his power, via my own intellect, via my own skin,

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

via my own ability,

00:03:06--> 00:03:36

if we can use such descriptive words in English language, a cliche read many of the cliches inside the Koran color, another Bookman Arla, I'm your Almighty Lord, as I talked with you studied these callamard the sentences inside the Quran that Allah mentions about certain individuals call innama ot to other elements in D. I've been given this wealth, fire my own knowledge, my own comprehension.

00:03:38--> 00:03:43

This is speaking about our own and the sort of costs that we find in 20th Chapter The Quran

00:03:44--> 00:03:48

because coruna we find Allah mentioned Napoleon Academy removes

00:03:49--> 00:03:49

him.

00:03:50--> 00:03:53

korunas from the family of Moosa

00:03:54--> 00:03:59

Rama begin to discuss what is it mean is from the family Moosa una comunidad de de

00:04:00--> 00:04:10

either he sees his his uncle or his uncle's son or his cousin or person from his family. He helped but he was a person who, who belonged who's close to to Moosa.

00:04:11--> 00:04:16

But what concerns us for Baba Ali him, he began to oppress them.

00:04:17--> 00:04:22

He began to oppress the people around him. Why? Because of his wealth,

00:04:23--> 00:04:36

the property that was given to him does once again you read a descriptive nature of how Allah describes the wealth of our own. Do you find that the keys are carried by prosper, prosper merfolk Ashura

00:04:37--> 00:04:50

as mentioned that sort of use of as well whatever is above 1010 brothers of use of La salon 10 strong men just carry as a mom shooting is Tafseer tournament food mentions just carrying the keys

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

the keys of the treasures as for the actual cans, the canoes the treasures of qarun Mm hmm.

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

mentions

00:05:01--> 00:05:08

XML sub in the Hall of Famer, more than 70 donkeys

00:05:09--> 00:05:25

carry the treasures of our own subaqua Allah him, he began to show his wealth, his might, his authority wide the wealth that was given to him beginning to oppress his own people. In other places, not until the internal

00:05:30--> 00:05:32

man begins to oppress

00:05:33--> 00:05:33

or

00:05:35--> 00:05:45

he thinks he's self sufficient. He's earned his own riches. He doesn't need anybody. He doesn't need to share his wealth. He doesn't need to help another individual.

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

This is the dangers of arrogance.

00:05:49--> 00:05:58

And the essence of arrogance is from an am one from wealth, the greed of wealth,

00:06:00--> 00:06:09

miserliness, a little individual to begin to loot to plan that to spill blood to make, that we just have to make it permissible

00:06:11--> 00:06:17

that all of this may sound strange for some of us, but this is today's Hadith. It tackles

00:06:19--> 00:06:43

fair, oppression, what when, and where and whom it is various types of types of people just think is one type of oppression various types psychological, social, monetary, physical, linguistic, cultural, racial, all different types of womb, the womb that we find taking someone's right without any justification for any form of oppression for

00:06:44--> 00:06:51

a Zulu, Merton, Yeoman piano, because one, oppression will be many darknesses.

00:06:52--> 00:06:58

On the day judgment, many darknesses a person will have to face on a day of judgment, what Akasha

00:06:59--> 00:07:00

and fear greed?

00:07:02--> 00:07:11

Being miserly, not sharing your wealth. So in Sha, Allah, c'mon, Kanika Bella acaba come, because what destroyed the people before you was greed,

00:07:12--> 00:07:22

and love of wealth, not sharing their wealth, hammer home, and suffer coup de ma, whom was the head Luma harima home and led them to spill blood.

00:07:23--> 00:07:26

And it led them to make that which is haram to make it Helen

00:07:28--> 00:08:00

studied it in great detail, the science of wealth, the greed of wealth, led them to spill blood. the greed of wealth today leads people to spill blood. the greed of wealth today leads people to take away people's rights, to try to make that which is haram to make it harder. That's what people do, because of the greed, of wealth that we find wealth, of greed of wealth leads them to pray, to what to power and to control other individuals.

00:08:01--> 00:08:05

We find an ahaadeeth inside the sort of IBEW

00:08:07--> 00:08:54

paraphrasing all of this again, beware of greed, for it was only agreed that destroyed those that came before you. It commanded them to be miserly, and they did so. It commanded them to severe family ties. And they did so it commanded them to behave wickedly. And they did so had these in sort of Abby doubled, and check by the late shift Nasir have been Alberni, Rama to LA LA. And he said Buhari that we find the son of Adam had one value of gold. Here's another value. If you have two values of gold, here's another value. And the only thing that will quench that thirst that greed will be a throb will be the earth that enters into the mouth enters into the body of the individual,

00:08:55--> 00:09:16

or your two below Admin tab. And Allah Tay accepts the repentance of the individual turns back to him, and ishara towards use of one's wealth appropriately, that this is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala. Now the Hadith that we find, I asked the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, to give me some money.

00:09:17--> 00:09:27

companion asked the prophet Elijah give me some money, he gave him some money. He asked again, he gave it to him for a second time. He asked him again for third time he gave it to him, had it inside Buhari.

00:09:29--> 00:09:45

The Prophet alayhi salatu salam was not a spiritual individual, the ultimate spiritual individual, because even in dealing of the dunya he's tasking his heart and his mind and his soul was always about reminding his followers about and

00:09:46--> 00:09:50

so he said to him in the huddle man, how the rotten holberton

00:09:51--> 00:09:54

this wealth is his lush green Naka sweet fruit.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

That's what is well face. A sweet fruit the person wants to eat more

00:10:00--> 00:10:23

tastes more, have more of it is never satisfied and happy. It continues to mention whoever takes it without greed, a lower blister individual, whoever takes it with greed, then Allah will not bless it. For him. He'll be like the one who eats but he's never satisfied. And the upper hand is better than the lower hand, had even Buhari kita Baraka

00:10:24--> 00:10:33

the book, speaking about a rocker, softening the hearts You know, that's what that's what the essence of Islam is, is a skier

00:10:35--> 00:10:38

kita Baraka is to the end of Mr. Hardy's collection.

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

Because sometimes knowledge just becomes

00:10:42--> 00:10:44

to excuse expression becomes a dry science.

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

That's as simple as we can read a lot of books.

00:10:48--> 00:10:53

But as its application, many of us can't apply it. That's the difference between a person is

00:10:54--> 00:11:03

a person is a jurist is able to apply the law of Allah subhanaw taala. To read books, there are many people, many people have have that knowledge is there?

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

Does it soften the hearts?

00:11:07--> 00:11:10

Does it alleviate the soul? Does it make them a better individual

00:11:11--> 00:11:35

and foreignness as a new nurse illness? The best of people is the one who benefits to people the most. That's the one who's the best person, as described by the prophet Elijah, who benefits other individuals, does his benefit himself, benefits other individuals in society. And that's why many of us Our hearts are not are not softened to certain things inside life.

00:11:36--> 00:11:40

It just becomes because as we get to touch upon the culture around us

00:11:41--> 00:12:08

that it has a big fusion in your life. Don't many people think no, the culture environment that we live in, it doesn't impact us. It does impact us. It impacts us deeply. without us even understanding the penetration of the culture around us. What has led us to how to carry out allies how to live our lives, how to understand our lives, by the people that we're surrounded by. And as we find the heart of an old man, had it inside missionary find remains young.

00:12:09--> 00:12:13

With regard to the love of two things, and long life in wealth.

00:12:14--> 00:12:18

An old old man's heart remains young, that vigor that zeal

00:12:19--> 00:12:33

remains junk inside their heart, wealth, and to have a long life. In other words, we find the son of Adam grows old. But two things remain young in him. desire for wealth and a desire for long life.

00:12:34--> 00:12:41

Mm hmm. No, we explain this Hades inside his shadow for him a Muslim I find in some 18 volumes.

00:12:42--> 00:12:47

Speaking when is Hadeeth you mentioned that this individual described as having a craving a yearning desire.

00:12:49--> 00:12:52

Has this desire inside his heart

00:12:53--> 00:12:54

to live longer,

00:12:55--> 00:13:08

to have more wealth? Mm hmm. Toby mentioned that he's expressed his headache. Why does he have this craving, because the most dangerous thing to man is is himself.

00:13:09--> 00:13:13

The most daring, most pleasurable thing to human being is themselves.

00:13:15--> 00:13:47

So the only way to protect oneself is via wealth, is why a long life you need that wealth to give the long life as they say, obviously life is destined. But this is the aspiration, the belief that they have. If I have a the wealth, I will live a better life and have a better quality of life. It may extend my life. So that that desire that craving exists inside the human being. And thus we find that love of words, to keep me helped me healthy inside my life.

00:13:48--> 00:14:06

All of this is inside the Quran. Xena nessa Boucher Tina Nisa. Well, Bonnie will panauti remote control 30 minute Daddy will fit Dotty well Highland musawah Mati will an M you will have the Lika Matera hayata dunya. Allah mentioned beginning of Surah Al e Imran de nada ness, the covetous greed

00:14:07--> 00:14:16

Lena see for mankind. We are in St. Lucia wa t from the things that they desire. They want to get inside their life

00:14:17--> 00:14:19

and Nisa, women,

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

children,

00:14:22--> 00:14:29

wealth, property, gold, silver, branded horses tils land.

00:14:30--> 00:14:33

This is the language that allows us inside the Quran.

00:14:34--> 00:14:42

Then Allah concludes, I mentioned these are only things, the temporal things of this dunya and a better ending is with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

And as Saba mentioned, based upon this verse,

00:14:47--> 00:14:49

that the human being is an inborn miser

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

unless is controlled and this is channeled in the right direction that man has this greed discovered this love for these things.

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

is programmed within the individual.

00:15:03--> 00:15:09

So the person has to be deprogram has to be taken away. These things have to be filtered out. They have to be channeled inside the right direction.

00:15:10--> 00:15:15

In our head either if I'm mad at Bernie j Annie or Sheila economy, we have sadena her

00:15:17--> 00:15:18

two hungry wolves,

00:15:20--> 00:15:23

which are let loose on a flock of cattle and a flock of sheep

00:15:24--> 00:15:32

is not as dangerous. As an individual man Harrison Melia when Harrison Murray Alan Malley was Sheriff Lee Dini.

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

What is far more dangerous than a wolf

00:15:37--> 00:15:38

or a flock of wolves being let loose

00:15:40--> 00:15:47

on a flock of sheep, other wordings mentioned to be locked in a in a pen in a stable all alone, just a wolf and the sheep

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

have a one night to remain what will remain.

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

Nothing will remain.

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

But what is far more dangerous than that for the human being.

00:15:57--> 00:15:58

In this parable,

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

Harrison Murray

00:16:02--> 00:16:04

and Mary Mary Scharf.

00:16:06--> 00:16:11

The strong desire the person has for wealth, and nobility and rank.

00:16:12--> 00:16:14

Obviously, we can understand the concept of wealth

00:16:15--> 00:16:17

or at the limit of

00:16:18--> 00:16:20

why honor why dignity

00:16:22--> 00:16:27

because some people go at all distances, just to protect their own self,

00:16:29--> 00:16:33

just to protect their own fame, just to protect their own name,

00:16:34--> 00:16:43

just to protect their own identity, just to protect their own family, their own clan, their own tribe. And in today's language, their own Gemma

00:16:44--> 00:17:10

is dangerous. The person will do everything to protect themselves and the people around them. And this is a sickness that exists inside our society because some people don't see a hadith from such an from such nature. They don't understand it from such a perception. They always think they're headed to speak from a different perception. The Hadith is clearly stating man is clear. The danger is a sheriff

00:17:11--> 00:17:14

why why is that mentioned the Hadees because people will do that.

00:17:15--> 00:17:19

May Allah forbid in the name of you some people will do that go to old expenses

00:17:20--> 00:17:24

for your own protection for your own souls that we find.

00:17:26--> 00:17:32

Who's clicked it he wrote a whole resell a whole book out small pamphlet based upon this hadith. Sharon Hadith

00:17:35--> 00:17:37

at the Bernie Ajay Ernie

00:17:39--> 00:17:45

so you've read his works even if a person doesn't have much, much time inside their life of may not be so so well versed

00:17:46--> 00:17:55

and so how come once a fantasy read it even Roger humble is a collection of German alumi when Hakan

00:17:56--> 00:18:12

printed in two volumes are also available in one volume, compendium of science and wisdom wherever he took the 42 a hadith of Imam nawawi and he added 10 more to it making 50 to a hadith.

00:18:14--> 00:18:26

Read this in your life. And this will suffice you read the expression these 50 to a hadith this will suffice you and if you have some extra time, then read the whole of Rio de Sala hain.

00:18:27--> 00:18:35

Read these two books, these two compilations and you will become a better individual you will find an

00:18:36--> 00:18:37

was Sakina

00:18:38--> 00:19:06

peace, tranquility and spirituality inside your life. You will find it inside your life just complete inside your life to read German illuminated hichem and read the other side to him. And you will find success inside that because everything that we search for inside Riyadh the story about the Prophet alayhi salatu salam ala Koo his character characteristics his behavior. Babel taqwa a Sabah al Maha Sabha.

00:19:07--> 00:19:22

Allah Maha Sabha chapters of patience, honesty, integrity, dignity, trustworthiness, family, eating, drinking utensils, clothing. Imagine staying away from lying, cheating, wickedness, it's all there.

00:19:23--> 00:19:26

That's why I'm just kind of placing certain elements inside that work is a boon.

00:19:27--> 00:19:52

This acceptance inside their work to the compilation because it leads to the intention is to better people, better individuals in society, and thus we find that rather than spending and sharing that many of us become miserly individuals. Another hand is giving a parable. The prophet Elijah he mentioned the example of a miser and an arms give it a person who gives in charity is that a person example of two persons

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

wearing an iron cloak

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

wearing an iron iron vest. Now the Hadith in Bukhari explains

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

said that a person who gives in charity that the the armor begins to expand for the individual, and a person who's miserly it restricts the individual.

00:20:11--> 00:20:16

Explanation has had these were given by various random up Hadith is a person who is giving the wealth.

00:20:17--> 00:20:20

their wealth becomes more spacious for them.

00:20:21--> 00:20:26

More of a blessing for the person who restricts their work, their life becomes restricted, their soul becomes more restricted.

00:20:27--> 00:20:43

Another shed explains Hadith he mentioned that the reason why the armor has been mentioned is because armor is a form of protection. So when a person gives, for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah, then the armor the protection becomes a protection of a law.

00:20:44--> 00:20:56

That's opposite person is protected from from all sides, is protected by whom protected by Allah Subhana Allah, person who doesn't give their wealth then it becomes restricted and if the body part of the body becomes exposed,

00:20:57--> 00:21:12

become they become exposed to hardship or calamities, whatever it may be. That's what they there are ways of a person to protect themselves his non Muslim ways of protecting Muslim is via certified by a charity. Likewise is a

00:21:14--> 00:21:16

remembrance of Allah Subhana Allah places a shield

00:21:18--> 00:21:38

faces a shield around the individual. Allah place happy workplaces, angels around the individual guard to protect the individual to be with the individual. And the person is in remembrance of a loss and there are definitely some some LMR they write strange things. Every time a DSP is speaking about the person mood music,

00:21:39--> 00:21:44

the one who's drunk in the state of intoxication, drunk in the court of law strange,

00:21:46--> 00:21:47

strange words they are.

00:21:49--> 00:21:54

But he highlights that the emphasis of the code of Allah subhanaw taala, how the light is an enlightened

00:21:55--> 00:21:59

every time he mentions that if I find this piece,

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

I find this this spiritual feeling that my heart is is dancing within me. If this were the wish that were the people who spiritually do that they have their worldview into account that they do but this is the real piece that I find inside my heart.

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

When I remember Allah Subhana Allah

00:22:18--> 00:22:30

sounds like extreme strange words. But it is a dip in the dimension meaning about these words of what they found inside their lives of peace and tranquility

00:22:31--> 00:22:39

shall be returned to Canada, it will come to me with a fee used to fight day and night with his pen with the sword. But he's tongue.

00:22:40--> 00:22:45

But yet every time Josie writes about him, when he's most profound students,

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

he said what I can do

00:22:50--> 00:23:03

every single morning be engaging sadhika while I'm assuming and heard, I said, This is my work. This is my protection. This is my remembrance of Allah that protects me that strengthens me for the rest of the day. It gives me the energy to carry out in my day.

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

Where are we from this?

00:23:07--> 00:23:14

The key concept being about spirituality, about just being if I can use such as just being a bookworm, we'll just read books

00:23:16--> 00:23:25

or being a spiritual individual, that it needs an individual to come spiritually close to Allah Subhana Allah and then close to the people.

00:23:26--> 00:23:29

Allah mentions What are you gonna do you're gonna be

00:23:30--> 00:23:52

mean for me. He don't think that those individuals who are miserly with their wealth, that which Allah has given to them who are higher alone, that this is something good for them, that they withholding their wealth, Shalom, rather, this is something evil for them. So you tokuyama backing up your piano, we will stop their wealth, around their necks,

00:23:54--> 00:24:05

on the day of judgment. Then Allah mentions one la mirada sama work you will not want to be Madame de Luna habia to Allah belongs in inheritance, the wealth of the heavens and earth.

00:24:07--> 00:24:14

My focus focus on the Quran how how many I had had the ending of the ayah is speaking about something but Allah mentions while la mirada sama working with

00:24:16--> 00:24:17

the wealth belongs to whom

00:24:19--> 00:24:51

as we began with a cartoon says is my wealth, my property is my life. Same cliches Today's my life is my wealth is my property is my hard work. It's for me. It's for my family law. It's not for you. It's not for your family. A portion of it is it's Mandela is the one that belongs to Allah. And he's placed it upon people to see how you're going to conduct yourself on the face of this earth. And Nigeria coluna, moon, NASA Bilbo all

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

those people

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

who are miserly individuals, and then they go encourage other individuals to be miserly.

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

To be stingy, don't spend your money here. Don't give your money here. Don't help this. Don't help that cause don't help this Muslim don't help that individual don't help that individual don't do this shuba hoonah doubt here out there, that to Yama Yama indicate a

00:25:16--> 00:25:18

common a debt judgment and nothing for you.

00:25:19--> 00:25:33

But if you come and you give you come in today judgment has snuck in hoonah as an admin from that as an admin hoonah good deeds from here from day from day from day that you forgot about. As long as your intention is insane.

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

You're just giving wealth. That's why I've debated even a person who comes to you and you know that possibly they could be lying. Some of them have concluded still give the welfare individual either side like a belay. subhanaw taala if you ask you by the name of Allah Tati, he

00:25:49--> 00:25:58

finally can carry the bed for caribou and he, if he's a liar, he lies upon himself but he asked you by the name of who he asked you by the name of Allah.

00:25:59--> 00:26:01

He asked you by the name of Allah so give it to him

00:26:03--> 00:26:09

is a discussion amongst fuqaha give it to him. And some of them are allowed to give it to him because he's asking by the name of Allah.

00:26:10--> 00:26:17

This is the perception that what you find that some of them they never had much wealth. They didn't have much property.

00:26:18--> 00:26:25

When whenever their money they would give it to them someone can even kakuna Allah tala museum used to spend up on the students

00:26:26--> 00:26:29

used to give their money to the students, one of the students, he got married.

00:26:30--> 00:26:35

And he found out he got married, he took out these keys of his card gave it to him.

00:26:37--> 00:26:43

This is recent two case kids gave it to him said oh da da da me, present from me, gave it to him.

00:26:45--> 00:26:47

We don't see this in our society.

00:26:48--> 00:26:51

We don't see the inference of this inside that society of hate of goodness

00:26:52--> 00:26:56

of helping people inside that society person doesn't do it for show.

00:26:57--> 00:27:18

But a person has to do a turn for encouragement to society. As we began with it, the society is an opposite society. And Islamic Society is different from the society that we live in, full of greed amazingness that we find another place that you find what your mama your mama, your daddy Johanna for taqwa Jeeva whom What do you know boom boom.

00:27:19--> 00:27:28

On the day just when you go speak about Zika, but some of them have allowed for Southern for wealth in general person who stingy is a sort of tober that they that they will it will be will be melted.

00:27:30--> 00:27:32

And then it will be iron will be pressed

00:27:33--> 00:27:39

on the on their forehead, on their backs on the sides of the mat and a stone.

00:27:41--> 00:27:45

This is the wealth that you try to pile up inside your life.

00:27:46--> 00:28:04

Now taste the potential wealth. Taste is punishment or the wealth that you try to aspire to. You try to keep inside your life. Keep it for yourself, does it mean well salli wa sallim ala Nabina, Muhammad Ali, he was asking me he woman termasuk avviso natella yo Medina, my bad.

00:28:06--> 00:28:07

We find that see far too many

00:28:08--> 00:28:13

characteristics of the believers, if you study them inside the Quran,

00:28:14--> 00:28:23

if when something remarkable that Allah and I will always speaks about these individually after being fearful of tough love, of consciousness, of obedience of law,

00:28:24--> 00:28:25

to be people of spending,

00:28:28--> 00:28:29

people giving their wealth,

00:28:31--> 00:28:32

people sharing their wealth.

00:28:34--> 00:28:40

When I mentioned that sort of algebra, those those individuals who really believe in Allah Subhana Allah

00:28:41--> 00:28:43

and they spend in times of adversity

00:28:44--> 00:28:48

and in times of goodness, and we've had some ideas they mentioned that give.

00:28:50--> 00:29:08

Now, when when you have the wealth, when you have the ability to know when life becomes the end of your life, you become ill or you know this difficulty then because it already belongs to so and so, it already belongs to your son already belongs to someone. So individual now, they just rubbing their hands waiting for it. But give that when you are your health in strength, give it then

00:29:09--> 00:29:14

give the wealth then that is the more element of birth of wealth. That person gives it then

00:29:15--> 00:29:21

like was it suited for con that we want description descriptive nature once again of about the rough man in the again it mentions

00:29:22--> 00:29:27

that they spend of their wealth is a descriptive nature of certain what meaning

00:29:28--> 00:29:34

that's why they certain characteristics. Not to sound harsh that some of us have not achieved those characteristics.

00:29:35--> 00:29:40

We haven't mastered them. We haven't focused upon them enough inside our lives.

00:29:42--> 00:29:51

And I had mentioned hostile attorney touched me and effeminate men to characteristics or trades never come together in a believer

00:29:52--> 00:29:54

and Boku wa sulak.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

Being miserly and being bad mannered.

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

Have you been sort of muddy and checked and accepted by like shake nurseline Alberni rock metal a

00:30:07--> 00:30:09

two things never come in a believer.

00:30:11--> 00:30:36

One is a booger that's why you study every time I had either benches opposite. If you dissect them, you find this is this is the Muslim Ummah are the final half of us, miserly with our wealth. Other Half super bad, well, bad characteristics. Schubert shadow word, doubt in our belief, or following our desires, it's always the opposite. That's what this world is of opposites as they say it exists.

00:30:37--> 00:30:45

So a person could be very well mannered. But the miserly person could be generous, but it could be bad mannered.

00:30:47--> 00:30:52

And only a few people are well mannered, and they kind and generous to people around them. That's the benchmark.

00:30:54--> 00:30:57

And in here's another extraction for many of us average Muslims.

00:30:58--> 00:31:00

You know, many of us, we have a chip on our shoulder.

00:31:02--> 00:31:05

You know, we think we've become an elite class,

00:31:06--> 00:31:07

in our religious practice.

00:31:08--> 00:31:10

And if you remind someone,

00:31:11--> 00:31:13

look, this is bad manners.

00:31:14--> 00:31:18

No harm, no problem. As long as my belief is correct,

00:31:20--> 00:31:26

I believe in Allah subhanaw taala. But no, no put no harm in having bad characteristics, bad behavior, when colorada

00:31:27--> 00:31:31

has that Pope, the prophet Elijah was mentioning that touched me Ernie.

00:31:32--> 00:31:41

Testimony has Latin if you mean, two things can't come together in a believer can't exist a Muslim can't be a bad demanded an individual

00:31:42--> 00:31:50

can't be rude. And I speak openly. What really upsets me personally at times, is that some people go out of their way

00:31:51--> 00:32:08

to show the fineness of characteristics for Muslim even for non Muslim I don't think that's wrong. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that's wrong, we should do that. There's no doubt about that, to show kindness and good and goodness with people around us, but at the expense of another Muslim.

00:32:11--> 00:32:14

What are the what have you read in your life about acquired about belief?

00:32:15--> 00:32:26

What is belief of a believer? What is cuckoo meaning, how cuckoo steamin. This daraja this levels? a disbeliever doesn't come on the page

00:32:27--> 00:32:31

disbeliever doesn't come with a page of the rights that belong to believers.

00:32:33--> 00:32:37

whatever type of believer the Muslim is rakija

00:32:38--> 00:32:45

focus upon this inside your life. The end of a Muslim will be will be Jenna.

00:32:47--> 00:33:30

That will be the end. The end of a case it will be if he doesn't accept Islam will be both the Hellfire lammi crossfeed Allah there is no discussion about that. The end result? Yes, we accept that some Muslims may be wrong. They may believe wrong things they may sin they may earn but that love and affection show to that person. Why don't you show that to another Muslim? But I think I've tried my best. But you never give up on the non Muslim when you give up on your Muslim. Why you given up on a Muslim for when you know deep down inside your heart he will eventually go to Ghana. He will go to Ghana. He may be punished. He may be tortured, he may be burned. And even then lamotta

00:33:30--> 00:33:31

Hata. Buenas

00:33:32--> 00:33:59

electromatic focus on your words. Never ever say to another Muslim, you're going to be punished. Never ever in your life. never speak by another individual this person because they don't know this intricate matter. They're going to be punished. And in the law. Knowledge is only with Allah subhanaw taala How dare we have the audacity to say to people who see that people are wrong, you know this person, this person is not going to make it.

00:34:01--> 00:34:06

You know if you rip this apart in close detail, there is hardly any individual

00:34:08--> 00:34:18

who never had discrepancies inside the actions or inside sometimes even inside the face. America a woman Muslim Islam I won't mention their names.

00:34:20--> 00:34:26

But his famous Roma Ghana in them hollered at him. They had mistakes inside the Akita

00:34:27--> 00:34:43

a deviated away from the belief and the sooner people jamara people in the defense say that they had so many good deeds. So it wipes it out. Yeah, if that person has so many good deeds, mobile, mobile. What about the message of the average person?

00:34:44--> 00:34:50

Don't they have any good deeds? Do they have any good actions? Don't they love Allah? subhanaw taala

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

Are you Am I the only one that loves Allah? Is this what many of us we think? We think that I am the only one that loves the law. I'm the only one that loves the suit. No problem.

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

I'd like to so no one else does. There's no Muslim on the face of the earth to ever did. There's been billions and they always will be there in some niche in some Valley in some broken down place there will be a Muslim and always will be, who's hot will be live with Allah Subhana Allah

00:35:19--> 00:35:33

who will obey Allah Subhana Allah and so we need to focus on what Allah will Bara is based upon his every time you mentioned about a person's devotion to Allah Subhana Allah, everything that a Muslim is good. Every Muslim is blessing.

00:35:34--> 00:35:47

The Muslim is just a human being just like the non Muslim just will falter, make mistakes, just needs to be ignited needs to be reminded to be encouraged inside their life. And that's the type of believers that we should be because as I began the social climate around us,

00:35:48--> 00:35:51

the social environment we live, we live in a bubble world.

00:35:52--> 00:36:02

We don't see outside the world around us. You know, it hurts at times. If you've read a person read some of the comments, know that we should waste that time but it's but sometimes in our research, we have to do this.

00:36:03--> 00:36:05

You read comments of a of a non Muslim.

00:36:06--> 00:36:11

If you took away the name, you think that Mashallah encouraging comments this person makes.

00:36:12--> 00:36:14

And then you read the list of the comments by Muslims.

00:36:16--> 00:36:17

And you begin to think eighth.

00:36:19--> 00:36:20

The Talmud,

00:36:21--> 00:36:34

these words, this language, this speech, this rhetoric, this type of is dead, black and white is not hidden. It's the what the Muslims write about another Muslim had expressed themselves. But this is what we become.

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

This will become that may Allah forbid an evil nature within ourselves

00:36:40--> 00:36:55

to demonize another Muslim, to discredit another Muslim, rather than to encourage a Muslim towards higher towards goodness, the social impact of our love in this world more than the Hereafter, which is penetrating inside our hearts.

00:36:56--> 00:36:58

That we love this world.

00:36:59--> 00:37:06

We don't have we don't have that deep conviction about coming, or return to the hereafter that we find. Neglecting self discipline,

00:37:08--> 00:37:16

as I mentioned, is becoming individual reading certificate. We don't want to discipline ourselves being amongst people who discipline us of discipline, our lives,

00:37:17--> 00:37:26

arrogance, and haughtiness, doubting a lot of others promise, ignorance or apathy, lack of concern about the effects of greed and miserliness.

00:37:27--> 00:37:35

That's what they say in conclusion that the wealth, the majority the welfare, it belongs to the 10% of the richest people

00:37:36--> 00:37:37

on the face of this earth.

00:37:39--> 00:37:42

And you know, and 90% of us

00:37:43--> 00:37:53

belong in at 10%, which sounds very strange, because it is such a certain threshold that if you have that amount of money, you're classified as a wealthy person, according to the figures.

00:37:54--> 00:37:57

So most of us are wealthy individuals.

00:37:58--> 00:38:36

Most of us are in the bracket of being the richest people in the face of this earth. We think it has to be billions of billions in comparison to the rest of the earth, we are wealthy, we are billionaires compared to the rest of the earth, that the rest of the ask to drink a glass of of murky, muddy water every day inside their lives, they have to scramble around to pick up bits of food from the floor, you have to see the children starving, to see the children hungry. If you see the children naked, if you see the children suffering, they have to see the children dying in front of them. A father has to bury his own son, he goes to town. And when we sit down, we complain about

00:38:36--> 00:38:36

life.

00:38:38--> 00:38:54

We sit and we say that Allah has blessed me with anything, I have a hard life, I have a difficult life. That's what difficulties to bury your own son or daughter in the ground. Because as a father, you didn't have the wealth, to give it to them, you have food to give to them.

00:38:55--> 00:38:57

That will destroy a man

00:38:58--> 00:39:02

that will destroy an individual or break them apart.

00:39:04--> 00:39:06

But that is soon enough on this earth.

00:39:07--> 00:39:09

That he will place people who will respond,

00:39:10--> 00:39:15

who spread their wealth to do the hate that they don't want to see. They don't want to see these images.

00:39:16--> 00:39:25

It's not about shutting off these images. as some people they just shut these images of the way to shut these images off, is to share your wealth. That's how you shut these images off.

00:39:27--> 00:39:54

That's how you do it. That is people say don't watch these images. Don't spread these images. If you want to shut them off, spread your wealth, spread the head, be generous, be good and what will happen with it Allah bless even more, will give Baraka inside a person's life inside their wealth, inside their health, inside an era higher and goodness will be given to that individual, because life is short actions of many of us are going to be very short and limited. But what we multiply it is

00:39:55--> 00:40:00

what will multiply even further is a sidecar is a giving a word will be multiplied

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

Many many times over Ramadan narration makes it 70 times over

00:40:05--> 00:40:13

equivalent obligatory actions. To this these are opportunities for the individual to do what? To avail themselves to help themselves.

00:40:15--> 00:40:25

Give us all a topic and ability to use our words in the right manner to help it to benefit individuals around us the benefit at large is muslimah to bring it out of his of his hardship and is difficult
