Salam alikoum. Onto loi broker to Missoula man or Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge mine I'm about. Whenever we come across the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you will hear that or we see that the Sahaba says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said such and such, but you know very well that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that I am about to say something, and make sure you remember this, there are very few a hadith like that, today, we will be covering one of those kinds of a hadith. Now, when you come across a hadith where the prophet says that listen to me very

00:01:02 --> 00:01:42

carefully, and try to remember that we have to pay close attention to those kinds of a hadith and what the prophets of Allah who it was somebody is about to tell us. The hadith I'm sharing with you today is a Hadith narrated by a book publisher and the motto of the Allah to ion and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he mentions that in this dunya there are four categories of people, and he says it has salaam that each one of us will fall into one of these categories. Now why am I sharing this hadith today? Because in this hadith, the Prophet alayhi salam says that one of those categories of people is the best of the people. And one of those categories is the worst of the

00:01:42 --> 00:02:21

people. Let's quickly go through what are those four categories? The prophets of Allah, Allah He was salam. He says that the very first person is, either don't Rosa Kahoolawe, whom Island we're in man, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, The first category is that person, that Allah subhanaw taala has given given him two things, he has given him wealth, and he has given him or him and knowledge. Now let's take a step back and I want to make this I want to clarify this, even though the Prophet sallallahu sallam said at Edelman, here what an ailment implies and as the Allamah explained this, is that here Illman means that a person has a knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah

00:02:21 --> 00:03:02

of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he has religious knowledge, to the point that that is bringing him closer to Allah subhanho wa taala, he has enough knowledge that is bringing him closer to Allah and is developing Toccoa in him, as we all know, the purpose and objective of knowledge is not so that we can just, you know, gain more and more knowledge, and so that we can give, you know, hot bars and hot rods and so forth. The objective of knowledge, as we have seen from the Prophet, Islam, the Sahaba, our scholars, that type of thing and the type of type your aim is that it should bring the hatia and Toccoa in the fate of Allah subhanho wa Taala within a person.

00:03:02 --> 00:03:40

And so therefore the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying that anyone who has been given these two things, and they use them wisely, they use their knowledge and their Toccoa and their the Hashem and obedience to use their wealth correctly. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, for her, for her that be awful manners. And this is the most virtuous rank and the most virtuous position. So a person has the two these two things, and they're using them the correct way. Then the next thing I also want to share is that when we come across the knowledge, see, a lot of times we feel like,

00:03:41 --> 00:04:21

you know, how much knowledge should I have? And how much should I acquire and so forth. We have to understand that knowledge is, of course, very important. But at the same time, many of us we get into this debate that what's more important is a more important or is Ahmed more important, and that's why, you know, Sofia authorea Rahmatullah Yatta. He was asked this question that what is more important and he says, The both are important, but both complement one another. So the purpose and the knee when acquiring knowledge should be that you're going to practice it and the more you practice it, the more Allah He puts Baraka in that knowledge, they both are they complement one

00:04:21 --> 00:04:59

another. And this is why also we find that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, and this clearly tells us that when it comes to knowledge, if a person's heart is not in the right place, when it comes to acquiring knowledge, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in a hadith now, although there is some people there are some scholars who say that this hadith is by Eve, but nonetheless for learning purposes and for motivation purposes, there's nothing wrong in using a hadith of this type. But the Prophet sallallahu it was some he says, follow up with your enemy for little to no Allah Cooley Muslim, that seeking knowledge

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

is required upon every single person. And then he says it has Salam that acquiring knowledge for the person who is not fit to gain that knowledge, or whose heart is not in the right place to gain that knowledge. It is like putting pearls and jewels and gold on a pig. And what that implies is that the pig has all this jewelry, but it does not benefit him. Likewise, a person who acquires so much knowledge, but they're not doing it for the right reasons. And their heart is not in the right place, then that in that knowledge is not going to benefit them. So that's why it is very important that if we have first of all having that knowledge, having that taqwa and if Allah has given you

00:05:45 --> 00:06:28

wealth, then using it in the right way. The second category of people the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he talks about is the eye on him and difficut basically the person who has the knowledge, but they do not have the money, but the Prophet sallallahu I assume he also says that this person says that he makes this Nia that had ALLAH given me such amount of money, I would have used that. Now. Subhanallah many of us we fall into this category to there's so much good that we want to do but Allah has not given us for you. And for people like this. The Prophet said Allah who it was some says that because of their Nia, Allah subhanho wa Taala will give them the same reward. Now of

00:06:28 --> 00:07:09

course, we do find that even though Allah subhanaw taala will give the reward to this person because of their Nia and because we know that there is so much in our deen about the Nia and the importance of Nia. But it is also very important to understand that these kinds of people who actually go out and they spend their money and the user money in the Cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala then they're gonna have a slightly higher rank, but still the person who is who has that Taqwa or who has that knowledge, but Allah has not given them enough wealth or a lot of wealth to do so much good. In sha Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will, Allah Subhan Allah will put Baraka in that Nia, you know,

00:07:09 --> 00:07:52

subhanAllah we find that Abdullah mo Radha, comment Allah Allah, Allah, he says something very beautiful. And if there's anything that you remember from this today's talk, just remember this. He says that there are small things that you can make big, and there are big things that can become small. What does that mean? It means that when you do something small, but if your knee is powerful, if your NIA has so much loss in it and sincerity, that one small action can become humongous. And on the other hand, you can do something amazing, you can do so much good. But if the NEA is corrupt, if the NEA is diluted, then that one big thing that you have done will be counted as small. So this is

00:07:52 --> 00:08:33

why I even bothered Rahmatullah. Allah says that remember that Nia and a clause is very important. The third category, and these are the words of the people that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, It is the person who is the the Jahan and he is a honey. Now what that means is that a person does not have the heart and He does not have enough Kappa, enough connection with Allah subhanho wa taala. There is not much religiosity in their life, at the same time, they are honey. And when it comes to these kinds of people, they end up using their money in places that can be displeasing to Allah subhanho wa taala. And so we have to remember that when Allah says, when we met Rosa on our

00:08:33 --> 00:09:13

home, Yun Farrakhan, Allah subhanaw taala says, whatever wealth Allah has given us, using that in the correct way, is absolutely crucial. And this is why we find even in the Quran, you know, Subhan Allah, that Allah tells that if there's a person who is a Wali, or there's a person who's a guardian to another person, let's say for, for example, a child, and let's just say that child has inherited a lot of money. And as they're growing up, if they do not have the discipline, to know how to spend their money, then you should not give their money, all of it to them right away, give it you know, break it up into pieces and so forth. We need to teach our children how to use your money wisely.

00:09:14 --> 00:09:55

But here what we find is that a person who may have money, but their heart is not connected with Allah, they will be involved with Seraph and Islam is to use your money in places of MOBA the places of permissibility but then that can lead a person to spending their money in a form that is highlighting the Quran as Tabby Vir and Allah subhanho wa Taala says in animal Bvd, Anna cannot want to share it. And then eventually a person spends her money in places that are displeasing to Allah subhanho wa taala. And once again, the profile of Islam says that this person is the of the most despicable rank. And then we find the fourth category is where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

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

sallam he mentioned that a person who is first of all they don't have anything at

00:10:00 --> 00:10:40

same time they are Jehan mean that they don't have no really religiosity in their life. But they make that Nia and they say that had I had enough money, like the third category person, I will spend the money that way, the Prophet saw some tells us that that person because of their Nia, they will also take up the the burden of this on the Day of Judgment, of course, not in the same category, or in the same capacity as a third person. But nonetheless, they will take up some burden upon themselves because of their Nia. So once again, we have the person who is heart there's religiosity, ILM and Ronnie the best, then you have the island and the 40 year mean that a person who does not

00:10:40 --> 00:11:19

have money, but there's a lot of religiosity in their life. And then you have the third category which is the Jahan the honey and then you have the fourth category which is the you have the Jahan the fuckery. And so the question that you and I we need to ask ourselves is that Which category do we belong to? There is one thing that is within our capacity, and that is to have a class and there is one thing that is in the hands of Allah and that is to give us whether or not Allah gives to whoever he wants. So we should always ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to be on the first category. There's nothing wrong in asking in that way. And if we have a clean intention, inshallah Allah will

00:11:19 --> 00:11:56

give us If Allah has not given you always remember that tried to be part at least at the bare minimum of the second category where your Nia is in the right place, your heart is in the right place, your heart is connected with Allah subhanho wa taala. And keep your Nia there because at the end of the day, Allah subhanho wa Taala will judge us based on our intention, I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to keep us from amongst those who have Iman, May Allah take us from this dunya at a time when he is most pleased with us. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala whatever resources we have, whatever intellect that we have, whatever skills that we have, whatever good that we can provide to the

00:11:56 --> 00:12:06

Ummah, may Allah give us the ability to help other people and benefit other people. I'm a little bit I mean, does that Kamala had a salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
