when we talk about our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala it is the most important relationship in this entire dunya everything that we see in this dunya every relationship is based on our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala when I talk about relationship with Allah subhana wa Taala it is not only established by Salaat by tilava by vicar, but there are other things that affect our relationship with Allah subhanho wa taala. You know, subhanAllah people usually ask, why is it that there are so many people in this dunya they praise a lot, they go to the masjid. Sometimes they are always in Islamic attire. Sometimes they have beards, sometimes they don't have

00:01:45 --> 00:02:28

beards. But they sometimes they cheat people. Sometimes they miss handle situations. Sometimes they treat their own family and they're very abusive to their families. And the reason why we have this situation the OMA is because we have disconnected we have divided everything. We think that our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala is based on our salons, our Denia and our Asgar and these other things, when it comes to our o'clock when it comes to what we eat the halal and haram that we eat. And not only that, but when it comes to our money, our finances, even these things are connected to our relationship with Allah subhanho wa taala. When we talk about money, well this is

00:02:28 --> 00:03:10

something that Allah subhanaw taala has given all of us on a different level. But the same time Allah subhanho wa Taala has told us and what we learned in the Quran, and we learned the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim, that this is an Amana from Allah subhanho wa taala. We say that this is all my money. But as the Hadith tells us, that the son of Adam says, Molly, Molly, this is my wealth, and this is my wealth. But the Hadith Bootsy tells us, the only wealth is yours, whatever is yours is what you have ate, and it is gone. Because who knows that today I may die, and all the wealth that is sitting in my account, it will belong to someone else. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has put

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

upon us a responsibility and how to manage our finances to it doesn't it doesn't mean that because it's mine, I get to use it the way it is. When we stand before Allah on the Day of Judgment. One the questions will be well on the money he made at the server who were female and fucka How did you earn your money? And how did you spend your money? We also find in various other places, this concept of how to use our money, making sure that Prophet Allah is on he taught us the Quran teaches us that what can you do to make sure that you don't fall into debt? Now, when we talk about money, the most, the biggest thing that we always find is people are always in the state of debt. And the question is

00:03:54 --> 00:04:06

that how first of all, why do people fall in debt? And how do you get out of debt? The Quran teaches us that what can you do to stay out of debt? The very first thing is Allah says in the Quran, Wallah.

00:04:09 --> 00:04:54

What type of soda coolers bust? When it comes to spending money, you have to have a very moderate and a very balanced approach. You cannot be extreme on one end where you can where you don't even spend at all and you cannot be on the other extreme where your hands are open all the time. The Quran also tells us in this in the passage where Allah talks about his slaves, he says when Medina either unfuckable lamb you see full well I'm Yatra again Allah subhanho wa Taala saying that make sure you you, you establish a balance in your life. And now when we talk about wasting when we talk about Islam, the Quran tells us well Adina either unfuckable lamb usafl What is the definition of

00:04:54 --> 00:05:00

Islam? The meaning of Islam is not to waste money. However, the meaning of what

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

wastage of money can always change based on time, circumstances in place and the situation at hand. You cannot, it's really not fair to sit there and pinpoint that who's wasting money who's not wasting money. That's not my responsibility. My responsibility is to look after my own finances and making sure that whatever wealth I have been given, first of all is that it is used the proper way and it is achieved the proper way. And subhanAllah when it comes to also wealth, one thing I forgot to mention wealth and the preservation of wealth is so important that when you study Islamic law, when you study Islamic law, there are three different types of overarching mocassin of Sharia. There

00:05:45 --> 00:06:25

are the essentials, there are then the desirable and then there are those the second one is the complementary and the third one are desirables. Amongst the essentials to amongst the essentials. What are the key essentials? Mikaze the virus Shetty Ah, one is the preservation of our deen number two, the preservation of our knifes number three, the preservation of mine. Number four, the preservation of lineage and family. And the last thing is the preservation of wealth. Why? Because wealth is so important. Now coming back to the subject of debt if we find ourselves in debt, first of all, we know how to stay away from debt. Allah subhanaw has told us what to do to stay away from

00:06:25 --> 00:07:09

debt. But when we don't do that, and we fall into the state of debt, which is the case with most Americans, most of us are in the state of debt. What can we do to get out of debt? The very first thing is you have to make a very clear Nia and you have to make an honest Nia with Allah subhanho wa Taala that I want to get out of debt. If we're taking a debt from someone and deep down in my heart. I'm not serious about paying that off, then I'm going to be held accountable for Allah subhanho wa taala. In fact, the longest ayat of the Quran is about that. Yeah, your Alladhina amanu either to the UN to be Deignan Illa agenda Musa man fuck to boo. This is why I always say to people, when

00:07:09 --> 00:07:51

someone comes to you, and someone approaches you to take a debt and they want a debt from you, make sure you sit down and you write it down. Today what did we see in our Muslim community is that everyone wants to trust each other on simple verbal basis. But when the problems do arise, then that is where we have conflicts. I always say the Quran teaches us that do not just take a loan from one another without writing it down. This is how you you avoid conflicts in the community. You avoid avoid complex conflicts in the society. But then when you find yourself in this kind of situation, you have to have the NIA if the NIA is clean, the INIA is strong and your Nia is sincere, Allah will

00:07:51 --> 00:08:36

find a way for you to pay that off. The story of Jabara the Allah Juan is a perfect example. Jabra yoga and he was only he was a teenager, literally a teenager, his father tells him the night before a heart, that tomorrow I have this feeling that I'll be amongst the first Shuhada and literally on the next day in developer hood, he was amongst the first Shuhada and then later on, he mentioned David on the along one day I'm sitting inside the masjid. And the problem is some he sees me and he says Java, what's wrong? And he says, Yeah, rasool Allah. What do I mean? I'm in the state of disparity? I don't know what to do. I have so many sisters, he had nine sisters to take care of. He

00:08:36 --> 00:09:16

had his father's debt that he had to pay off. And he says, Yes, sir. I don't know what to do. And there was a Jewish man that who had lent him some, some dates, and he won that back. He and the prophets of salaam they went to the Jewish man and they did ask for respite. And he denied the respite. And he says, I want it today. Long story short, the prophets of salaam he told them to gather all the dates, put them in piles, and he went to the largest one, he made dua, and he was able to pay it off. But the key thing about this story is this, that when he had that Nia that I have to pay it off. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala made a way for him. And addition to that, we also

00:09:16 --> 00:09:59

find a man who came to Eliade, Allah Juan, he was also in the state of nervousness, he was in a state of distress because of his debts. And I laid all the alarm on who taught him a DUA, that the Prophet alayhi salam said that if your debt is as big as the mountain, because you read this dua, Allah will take care of your debts. What is that dua Allahu mfine, Behala Lika and Hara mica, what do you need before they come and see what Oh ALLAH suffice for me? What is halal against that which is haram? What other Nene and make me dependent through your father through Your mercy, and through your compassion and your father? Make me independent, amen. See what from everything else besides

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


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

And not only that, but we also don't have another Hadith of the Prophet SAW sent him another dua, the Prophet sallallahu I send them Allahumma inni I will do bika Minal. Hum me well husband Oh Allah I seek Your protection from grief and worry why rule do become either I just see well cousin, I asked you for your protection from weakness and laziness while only becoming Germany well born. And I asked you for your protection from cowardness and miserliness, while only becoming available today and, and I asked her protection from falling into debt waka Dijon, and the angry of people in my community. So this is something that we all have to take very seriously. If I have taken a debt from

00:10:39 --> 00:11:16

someone. It is between me and Allah subhanaw taala and that person, I have to owe that person if I'm thinking I'm not going to owe this person, this is not the end of the story. I may get away today. Will Allah He no person will get away in the hereafter this is their heart. So if you are in this situation and you're feeling I don't know how I'll pay my debts, I don't know how to pay my debts. Put your trust. In the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you put your trust in the words of Allah, you do what you have to do, and let Allah subhanho wa Taala take care of the rest. I ask Allah subhana wa Tada for Baraka in our finances. May Allah subhana wa Tada give all those who

00:11:16 --> 00:11:38

don't have jobs who are looking for jobs. May Allah subhanho wa Taala provide them a halal risk in a halal sustenance and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala the all the silica we have given me Allah subhanaw taala accept that me Allah subhanaw taala take everyone who's in the state of debt, May Allah take them out through his father, out of debt amicable Alameen does akmola hate Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
