Well I

00:00:11 --> 00:00:12

don't saw the how

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

many Meena Mussolini Nene

00:00:26 --> 00:01:06

this will learn or Haman hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah. He Muhammad was early he was sorry he married about a slum Aleykum audience. Welcome to another segment of the best and the worst where we take a quote of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regarding the best action, or the best amo, or the best person, or vice versa, the worst action, the worst person and so forth. Today I want to share with you a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a sahih Hadith that we find in most of the AMA, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he is talking about the income that a person has.

00:01:06 --> 00:01:52

And he says that the best income or the best earning is that earning in which Allah subhanho wa Taala has put Baraka in it. And also he says, and that income which comes as a result of a person's hard work. So let's go into this hadith. And let's try to understand this. First of all is brothers and sisters, there is so many parts of the Quran, there are so many a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that highlight the importance of having a halal risk, a halal source of sustenance and Subhanallah we also find the Quran, you know, consequences regarding those people who cheat each other especially when it comes to money and so forth. So when the Prophet said Allahu

00:01:52 --> 00:02:36

Allah, he was salam, he says that the best income is that in which Allah has for Baraka in it, the question that many people ask is that how can we determine if Allah has put Baraka in it or not. And therefore, we go to another Hadith of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were in he says, LBI only been here email me at the federal court, that both the person who is the buyer and the seller, both people involved in the transaction, they the matter is in their hands as long as they do not depart from one another. And the Prophet alayhi salam says that if they speak the truth, if this transaction is based on trustworthy, trustworthy and honesty that Allah will put Baraka in that

00:02:36 --> 00:03:19

cell, Allah will have Baraka in that transaction. But if that transaction is based on lies, if it is based on fraud, if it is based on cheating one another, and things are hidden in that sale or in that transaction, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that Allah He takes away he snatches the baraka out of that sale. So this is why it is extremely important that number one, first of all, is May Allah subhanho wa Taala give an income to all those who don't have an income. Because of this current pandemic situation. Many people have lost their jobs, I pray to Allah subhanho wa taala, that anyone who has lost their jobs may Allah subhanho wa taala, replace it with

00:03:19 --> 00:03:56

something even better, something that is more happier for them in their family, and something that will benefit them in this dunya and akhira. immutable, Allah mean, the second thing I want to quickly mention is the importance of you know, Hala raised in Halal sustenance. Today's Subhanallah brothers and sisters, we scan the Muslim community, the Muslim world, and today Subhanallah we find so many people who are either victims of someone else's cheating someone else's fraud, someone else's bad business, and today's Subhanallah we find this across the world. Brothers and sisters, we have to understand that the Quran talks about people who cheat in business, people who commit fraud

00:03:56 --> 00:04:37

in business, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah Al Mustafa, even when he talks about those people who are cheating in their business, he says yo many of whom are not so they don't belong, I mean, Have they forgotten that that day will come that they will have to stand before Allah on the Day of Judgment, Allah knows everything today in this dunya a person can cheat and lie and steal and they can still get away with it. But when Allah He brothers and sisters, no one will get away with it in the hereafter. Allah knows everything about all of us on the air about us and what we do and how we do things. Therefore it is absolutely important that we always make sure that we have a highlight

00:04:37 --> 00:04:59

risk and Hala sustenance. Please do not cheat with anyone. Do not steal from anyone do not commit fraud against anyone today we may get away with lying we will not get away in the Hereafter. And if you are a victim of someone else's, then this is on you. You can either forgive them or don't forgive them. But remember that in sha Allah sama in sha Allah, Allah subhana wa Taala

00:05:00 --> 00:05:38

His justice will prevail. It may be in this dunya it may be in the akhira. But remember if you are truly the victim, truly the victim and you know that you have not done anything wrong, inshallah Allah subhanho wa Taala is on your side. Also we find that today's Subhanallah you know how many times many of us are so particular about like Halal meats that we Hamid is so behind it has to be hand sorted and so forth. That's fine, though. That's a different discussion. But today we find a world that today people have no problems of cheating with one other stealing from one another. But there are so particular about the behind on the behemoth and so forth. Brothers and sisters our deen

00:05:38 --> 00:06:18

is a complete Deen, you cannot just take one aspect of the and leave the other aspect of them. So this is something that's extremely important that we do from now on. Last thing I want to quickly mention. We all know that having a halal source of income is extremely important. And by the way, I do want to mention one more thing if you are involved in a haram business. If you have a true heart, a heart that you truly want to come close to Allah subhanho wa Taala you want to get out of what you are in, you have to make dua to Allah make a sincere dua to Allah and I can guarantee you, if your heart is clean, your heart is in the right place. And you have sincerity Allah will help you to get

00:06:18 --> 00:06:58

out of that. And Allah will replace it with something even better, but you have to have the right intention. The last thing I will say, the Prophet SAW Allah so what did he say in that hadith. Also the best income is that which comes from your hard work or your heart, hard work, brothers, sisters, what we find in many other Hadith also the you know the beauty and the baraka, the Allah puts in the income that comes from hard labor and hard work. There is nothing wrong even if you have a job that you may not be so proud of. But if it is halal praise Allah subhanho wa Taala say Alhamdulillah and do not ever be worried about what people are gonna say about you. Allah subhanho wa Taala it says in

00:06:58 --> 00:07:35

the Quran about that without a Salam. What I learned now the whole Hadith, Allah says that when he would take a metal in his hands, he Allah subhanaw taala made a soft LME steel soft in the hands of that without a Salam. Allah is talking about that without Islam and you know, working with metal and working with copper and iron and so forth. You know, subhanAllah today, think about this, if there's a person who's a blacksmith, and that's all that they do, and that's their primary source of income, how many times they will be shy, and they will not feel comfortable in telling other people that this is my source of income, on the other hand, are doctors you know, we find that this doctor sob

00:07:35 --> 00:08:11

this engineer sob you know, they are so proud. You know, I'm an engineer I'm a doctor. This is where my income comes from. But the blacksmith or someone who may do a job like a person who is a taxi driver or a Lyft driver or Uber driver, sometimes they feel very uncomfortable in expressing that this is what their job is. If Allah subhana wa Bucha is talking about that without a stamp and this is what he has done for him. Brothers and sisters, if it is halal income, that's all that you should be worried about. And you should think Allah subhanho wa Taala you may be a taxi driver, fine, no problem. You may be an Uber driver, fine, no problem. You can even have a low quality job, but if it

00:08:11 --> 00:08:47

is halal and if it's a halal source of income, and you're working hard and you're not cheating with anyone you're not stealing from anyone crazy ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and have no fear and expressing that this is what you do. And Allah has given you a halal source of income. I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give us ability to do what is right in all of our matters. May Allah guide us in all of our matters. May Allah subhanaw taala never put us in a situation where we have to ask someone else back from someone else. May Allah give us all as always the ability to have a halal source of income, a halal source of sustenance, we ask Allah that wherever we put in our mouth, it comes from a halal

00:08:47 --> 00:09:02

source. And we ask Allah subhana wa Taala in Mussolini now almost Lima, D one meaning 18 and global Alameen Zakka Mala Hey, Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
