China who won a stock photo when I was living in Korea and fusina woman Satya Molina de la palma de la vida de la casa de la la la hora de una de cada una Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman 50 Allah and my bad, my dear brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
They headed number 25 acts of charity, and I'd be very nerdy Allahu anhu. Aidan NSN may not have been Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called yar rasulillah.

Allahu Allahu Muslim.
Also on the authority of a Buddha radi Allahu anhu some of the companions of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, O Messenger of Allah, the rich companions have made off with the rewards, they pray, like we pray fast like we fast, they also given charity from their extra wealth. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, has not alone made things for you to do charity in virtually every Bihar is a charitable act. Every Kabira is a charitable act. Every Mita is a charitable act. Every Leela is a charitable act. Ordering good is a charitable act, forbidding evil as a charitable act, and you having such good sexual intercourse with your wife is a charitable act. They said O
Messenger of Allah, when one of us fulfills his desire, he will have reward for that. He said, Tell me, if he were to fulfill it unlawfully would he bear that sin. Similarly, if you fulfill, fulfill, and lawfully, then he would have, he will have rewards he will have reward. So this hadith was married by Abu Dora de la Hondo. And there's a similar Hadith narrated by Abu huraira the Allahu anhu as well and they both start off the exact same way that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dedicated the companions came contained to the Messenger of Allah. So Selim saying the story that the rich companions have run off with all the words, they pray, just like we pay the
fastest like we fast, they given charity, which we cannot give in charity, and they free slaves, that which we cannot do as well. So at that time, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he teaches them that say, after every Salah 33 times to Allah, and Alhamdulillah 33 times and Allahu Akbar 33 times, and whoever does this, then no one will be any more richer than him and more self sufficient than him, except for the individual that does this and does more. So sometime later, these poor companions to come back to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, O Messenger of Allah, the rich companions both found out about what you told us, and then
the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tells them that he could afford llama, your tea he monisha that that is the benevolence of Allah subhanho wa Taala he shows to whomever He wills. inshallah, we're going to be discussing the first Hadith and we'll just be giving slight commentary on the hadith of Barrera the Allahu anhu. At the end at the end, both of them were narrated in Sahih Muslim. So the first thing you see from the companions of the Allahu anhu is what are they complaining about? What are they complaining about? And these, this gives us perspective into the lives of the companions and what made them so special and so unique. They're coming to the
Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not complaining about poverty, not complaining about how difficult life is not about how harsh The weather is. They're complaining to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the rich companions, they've run away with all of the rewards. So it shows you their mentality that they had this attitude towards racing for the Acura, right, racing towards who can do the most good deeds, who can give the greatest amount of sadaqa who can pray the most.
And then if you look inside, you know the Quran even further, you find further examples of this, of what will make the Sahaba the Allahu anhu said there's a beautiful example in sort of October that a man he comes to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Messenger of Allah collecting sadaqa through he says, O Messenger of Allah, you know that I own nothing of this dunya except for my operation.
armies and my lower government. And if it was permissible for me to give my lower garment I'd give it to you as well. And he gave his upper garment in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So there you see he gave half of his wealth away and the way of Allah, I know it's Allah. But this is not the operative term we're looking at from the story. This man he goes and he sits back in his place, hoping that someone will come inside of the machine and give him some charity, so that when he receives this charity, he can go and give it to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and person after person is coming inside of the masjid and giving their charity directly to the
Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So what is this man do? It gets so painful for this man, that he gets up and he walks away from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with tears coming down his eyes. And unless I know it to Allah preserve this moment in the Quran, due to the great amount of sincerity that was behind this act, that Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells us why you know whom to feel domina Germany has an allergy domains report that their eyes flooded with tears as they walked away from the Messenger of Allah. Why was it because the Messenger of Allah kept on asking and asking and asking, and they're like, why won't the messenger have a massage and
I'm stopped. No, that wasn't their attitude, but rather this companion, he get up, he got up and he walked away from the Messenger of Allah with tears down his eyes, because he wanted to give him the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But he found nothing to give. And this made him sad. He said, here's an opportunity to achieve good in my life, but I'm not able to take advantage of this opportunity, because I don't have the money to give. And this is just one of the many many examples that you see from the companions about the alojado In fact, Allison I know what's Allah in the Quran, he tells us what we're actually supposed to be competing for. He tells us in abroad Allah feanor in another era
at young Varun sorry Sophie would you hear him nadarajah name you score number Hickey moto kitayama who misc Wolfie Danica Felicia Nathanson with an episode that is Salama Safina Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says, verily the pious will be in the delight of paradise on thrones, looking at all things, you will recognize in their faces, the brightness of delight, they will be given to drink of pure sealed wine, the last thereof will be the smell of musk. And for this, let all those who strive who wants to strive, meaning that here, Allah subhanaw taala, he's telling us that the ultimate and highest achievement that anyone will ever achieve is gender. Right, and he talks about how the
people of Paradise are going to be reclining on thrones, looking over, you know, the rest of gender and the rest of everything that exists, and they will be served these drinks of wine, that they will drink it, and that the as they get to the end of this drink, there's this beautiful fragrance of misc and Allah subhanaw taala he acts as if he's painting a picture for us, then visualize this. And then he concludes by saying for thieves alika folia Tanaka, sin was an episode, that this is what the competitors should be competing for. They don't compete with one another for who has the faster car, who has the bigger house, who has the better job who has the highest salary, but compete with
one another, who is going to have a higher rank in Paradise, who's going to have a higher rank in Paradise, immunologic rahimullah, when he comments on this, he shares some beautiful, beautiful expressions of our predecessors and hustle bustle, he said, if you see a man competing with you for this world, then compete with him for the hereafter. someone tries to compete with you in this life, you may win you may not. But just make sure that he doesn't beat you in the Acura, you should be the one that is victorious in the Acura. someone tries to compete with you in this world, you compete with him in the hereafter. One of the predecessors said, if a person hears that someone else did
more voluntary deeds for Allah than he did. He should grieve due to that, that if you find out that someone has done more good deeds than you, this is something that should make you sad, how sad should it make you look at the next statement. Another one said, if a person hears that another one does more for the sake of Allah, and due to that his heart then breaks and he dies, he becomes so sad that his heart breaks and he dies because he finds out that someone has done more good than him, then this would not be something strange, then this would not be something strange channel that shows you you know the the mentality that they have. Now the reality of you know, our times is that
when people lived in poverty, in times of difficulty, that perspective of the Acura is always there. But when people live in a state of comfort in a state of prosperity in a state of luxury, that concept of striving for the actual, it fades away from in front of us. And this is why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he tells us what Allah Hillel chakra aka Aleikum, WA can actually come and topsoccer alayka madonia cannabis Alamin can acaba calm, but an ephah suhar
komatsuna for suha liko comm can catch him by online is not poverty that I fear for you. But I fear that the world will be spread out before you as it was for the people before you, then you should compete in it as the people before you competed in it, and it shall destroy you. Just like it destroyed them just like in destroyed them to hear the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us to be very, very careful of the dunya, that there's a certain element of the dunya that yes, you should strive for you need to survive, you need to be comfortable, but don't let it blind you from what your real goal is. And that is to strive for the accuracy that is to strive
for the Acura
then these companions, they go on to say that they pray just like we pray the fastest like we fast. And then they go on to say, and they give in from the gift from their extra wealth in charity they give from their extra wealth in charity. Now this brings us to an interesting discussion. Is it allowed for an individual to give in charity while he is in a state of needs? Or a better scenario? Is it allowed for a person to give in charity? While he knows he will need this money? While he knows he will need this money? Who can answer that question for me? Is that permissible or not? So you know that you will need this money? Would you still decide to give it insured? Is this something
allowed for you or not?
that's we're all we're all just sharing personal opinions inshallah.
So you should give it that. Fantastic.
So someone needs it more than you should give it to them.
Go ahead. Yes.
And then you're not allowed to. Okay. Go ahead.
Yes, that's what we're discussing.
It is allows it is allowed.
Thank you will go with him in shock.
Fantastic accent, this is what you call real masala. And that's what we want the picture we want to paint that the Sharia is not black and white, it's not going to be you know, this is always halala. And this is always hot on the Sharia will always take personal circumstances into consideration will obviously push the circumstances into consideration. So now we look at it from two different cases. One individual has dependence upon him, he has to take care of his parents take care of his wife and children and take care of other people. He has dependents. second case scenario, he doesn't have dependents. second case scenario, he doesn't have dependents. So in Scenario number one, when a
person has dependents, it is mandatory that he takes care of his dependents first. And then he gives it sadaqa. He's not allowed to give the money of his dependents away, even though that money doesn't actually belong to them, but he will have to spend on them eventually, it's not allowed for him to give this away. It's not allowed for him to give this away. Now, Scenario number two is an individual has no obligations except for himself. He's living the bachelor life, right? university student Dennison have, you know, too many problems isn't have too many debts. You know, he's sharing an apartment with like, 50 other people, you know, having pizza for breakfast, lunch and dinner, you
know, living that life. And all of a sudden, you know, an opportunity comes to him to give sadaqa what is the thing to do over there? Over here, the scholar said, a person needs to look at himself. If he knows that he'll be able to be patient upon poverty, then he should go for it. This is the virtuous things to do. If he knows he can be patient upon that poverty. and in this situation, it would not to be impermissible. However, when individual knows that he can't be patient upon that poverty, that life is going to be difficult, and he won't be patient that he was going to end up you know, begging people for money at that time. Then in that situation, it becomes impermissible for
him it becomes impermissible for him. Now, I want someone to argue with what I've said. You all know a famous story that goes against what I've just said.
You want to argue Go for it.
Okay, before you get to this I want to talk about what story am I talking about?
Abu Bakr, Siddiq and Omar what happened with them was the story.
Yeah, how much money did they give?
Okay, so how do we answer that? No. How do we answer that? No.
level of image that's definitely one thing. But it goes back to the point that we were saying that in this situation where you know the messenger Allah says Allah, Masha Allah bla bla bla bla and who, you know what have you left behind for your family? He said I've left half of my work behind. So there is no issue over this right? He still has half of his water behind, but with Abu Bakr Siddiq hora de la Franco, he came and said, O Messenger of Allah, you know, I'm here when I'm presenting, what did you leave for your family, I have left behind a line this messenger some of them are hiding or similar to what happened over here. Over here, the scholars comment on the story
by saying that Abu Bakar of the Allahu anhu he had a special relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada, where he would spend all of his money in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then unless I know what Allah would give him so much more in return, than he would spend it all in the way of Allah and Allah would give it back to him. So over here is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew about his special relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is why he didn't prevent him from doing so that is why he didn't prevent him from doing so. So if an individual knows that his family will be able to be patient and they have this high level of Eman
and taqwa, then in that situation, yes, it is something virtuous to do and it is something allowed to do in that state. But again, this is something that is you know, for the cream of the crop of those that have in mind, and it's not for everyone, it is not for everyone.
Now, what is this opinion based on it is based upon the Hadith of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he says Qatar Bill Murray if men and your boy yarmulke, quote, It is enough of a sin for a man to allow to be destroyed. One way he is financially responsible for so here the Messenger of Allah says and I'm saying that it's a great amount of sin, that a person loses the money of the individual that he is responsible for, of the individual that he is responsible for.
Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in responding to all of this, he goes on to say, has not Allah made things for you to do in charity, as Allah not made things for you to do in charity. So this companions came complaining or messenger of Allah, we don't have said that we don't have money to give in sadaqa. So now the Messenger of Allah shalom is responding to them by saying that has Allah not made other things for you to do in charity. And it's similar in in summarizing the discussion, the Messenger of Allah similar sentiment, a very, very short Hadith, he says Coloma are often sadhaka, that every act of goodness is a sadhaka. every act of goodness is a sadhaka. So
over here, the messenger Allah says, and he gives this general term that every act of goodness is sadaqa. But in the Hadith, we're discussing the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes on to say, or to give particular and specific examples. So now we want to talk about the different types of South Africa, and South Africa are is of two types. South Africa, is of two types. The first type of South Africa is the Son of God, that you benefit others with. The first type of subaqua is the subaqua that you benefit others with, and who can give me examples of this.
Okay, so giving an education that's one What else?
Go ahead. Money. Fantastic. What else?
From this side of the room?
time? Fantastic. You help someone with something that's very good, what else?
Something very simple, what is the simplest act of subject that you could probably do? Ah, this is probably even simpler, fantastic a smile, the simplest act of sadaqa. And may there might be a laugh on this world, the simplest act of sadaqa, at least in terms of how much effort and time is required is a smile in your brother's face, right? The Messenger of Allah. So salam, he says, the best Sermo crealogix, Akiko laka, sadhaka, that even you're smiling in the face of your brother is a form of sadaqa. So this the simplest form of soda, and this is South Africa, that we give to other people. This is South Africa, that we give to other people. Now, the second type of South Africa is the
sadaqa that we actually give to ourselves, South Africa, that we actually give to ourselves. Now, what is this statement mean? Why would a person give sadaqa to themselves? And he had these messengers as soon as reported in Bukhari and Muslim, the Cafu, shabaka, and in us, the inner hasakah, to make a dynastic he says, keep yourself away from the people, keep your evil away from the people. And that will be a charitable act from yourself upon yourself. You hear the Messenger of Allah says Allah is talking about just not harming people, not harming people is an act of sadaqa that you do upon yourself is an act of sadaqa that you do upon yourself. Now, what is a lesson that
we learned from here? A lesson that we learned from here is that perhaps even simpler than you know, smiling in the face of your brother, is just making sure that they're not harmed by you. That's why I said the Philip that you know, in terms of doing something, smiling perhaps is the simplest act of charity that you can give
But something that will require no effort whatsoever is just make sure you're not harming people, make sure you're not harming people. Now, what are things that are very, very common that will harm people and you know, we're going to get a bit explicit, I apologize for that. But this is these are things that need to be discussed. When we come for Salah when brothers are wearing very, very tight trousers, and their shorts are too short. They're going down into the court, the whole backside becomes exposed. This is something that is harming other people. Anyone who has been in this situation I'm sure the vast majority of us have, it ruins your salon. Right? In your mind, you're
just cursing the individual in front of you, you know, please Allah do something with this individual, right? That's what's going through your mind. Likewise, this is perhaps not as common over here, where it's more common when we were in Medina, the day of Juma comes, it is crowded like crazy, like, you know, it's always almost felt like hedge sometimes in the dentist, unless, and you're next to a person. And this person thinks absolutely deplorable body odor, like literally as if you know, they haven't taken a shower in ages. So these are things that harm people with a person that has extremely bad breath. And this is why the messenger Allah, He tells us not to come to the
masjid when you've eaten, you know, onion and garlic is highly disliked to come to the masjid in that state. So keeping our Harmer way from people is something very, very simple. It requires no effort. Just take care of yourself, and don't harm the people. And this is the simplest act of sadaqa that you can do upon yourself. Now question arise, a question arises, how did the scholars understand the statement that when you say the spear you when you say, the duck meat, when you see the leaves, when you say that the clear, all of these acts are an act of self love, that just saying something for the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala? How does that become an act of sadaqa?
sadaqa upon yourself. That's one way that we definitely looked at it. But they looked at it from two ways. Number one is that an individual has a priority, to cleanse his heart to cleanse his soul. And there is nothing better to cleanse the heart and to cleanse the soul than to make the vicar of Allah subhana wa Tada. So making sunblock upon yourself, then this is how those statements are esodoc upon ourselves, that they're cleansing our hearts cleansing our souls. This is one way of looking at it. Another way that scholars looked at it was that when an individual continuously says these statements, while understanding them and believing them, and we'll discuss them in a bit, while
understanding them and believing them, then this leads to a person increasing in his Eman which will allow him to help other people which will allow him to help other people. And that is how these statements, even though they might not be a circle within themselves, they will lead to an individual eventually doing some sort of sadhaka as demand increases as demand increases. And there's something that's very important to understand that the acts that we do to help others are always better than the acts that we do to help ourselves. Right. So the acts in Islam that benefit other people are always more virtuous than the acts that we do to benefit ourselves. So for example,
an individual can choose between praying knuffle prayers, or between going and helping you know, a brother in Islam move. Which one would we be the most virtuous or the more virtuous of the two? A person that doesn't have, you know, much understanding of the deen, he may think that it's more virtuous for me to pray my prayers, but the answer is incorrect. Rather, if a brother is moving, then go and help him move. And if you can catch one or two, if you can get two or four cars on the side, then that is even, you know, better, right to try to combine between the two. But if you're in a situation, it's either or helping people, it's always better than acts which are done just to
individually benefit ourselves. Now this in the case of voluntary and novelties, not in the case of obligation or deeds. Right. So your brother's moving, and he says, You know, I have to move at 415 and you haven't prayed yet. So you think to yourself, you know what, let me go have my button Islam, and you know, I'll praise the Lord later. No, it doesn't work like that. The obligations take priority first, and then when at the level of natural or non obligatory deeds, then helping other people takes precedence helping other people takes precedence.
Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes on to say, verily every dispute is a charitable act. Every tequila is a charitable act, every meter is a charitable act. And every danila is a charitable act. What do these statements actually mean? This we have I think a lot of us can figure out because it's very simple to spear Do you think of some kind of law? So the term does Bihar is referring to the statement of sings to kind of love the meter is a statement of saying on hamdulillah that Kabira is the statement of saying Allahu Akbar and danila is the statement of saying that either a llama is a statement of saying that in the in the law now
Here's a challenging question for all of you. The one of the commentators, he said, all of a believers life revolves around the meaning of these four phrases. All of the believers life revolves around these four phrases. I want someone to explain that to me. I want someone to explain that to me. And if you successfully explain it to me, I'll give you a free ticket to the parenting workshop on Saturday. is accessible. Explain it, I will give you a free ticket to the parenting workshop and show
you how it does these four statements that the believers life revolves around these four statements?
Fantastic. One is done three months ago.
We can share the ticket from one person you'll give.
Would you want to give a coordinate with Yes. So the goal of the ticket has been given in southern Colorado? We need the other three quarters. Go ahead.
So what you said is absolutely correct. But it doesn't show us how the believers life is always a revolving around these statements.
That is one half of the statement we'll have delassalle say you've given one eighth of an answer right now. So we have a we have a quarter and an eighth, which gives us what missing?
So this goes to Okay, let's do this. We're discussing Alhamdulillah what is the term and hamdulillah? actually mean? What does Al Hamdulillah actually mean?
Okay, but what is the difference between saying all praises do to align all thanks is due to Allah, what is the difference between the two?
Many times, many times
you mixing up two things, you have the right idea when you're mixing up two statements.
No, no. So I see everyone or anyone else wanna give it a try? And go ahead. We have two people in the back our brother first, right?
Fantastic. So how deep is authentic? He says, How amazing is the affair of the believer. But now we want to see what is the actual meaning of an hamdulillah we can understand what we're trying to say.
What does that actually mean?
Thanks to Allah, you're close. That's like half the answer that he gave already is more than just thanks to Allah. Go ahead.
How did you drive this is something you came up with yourself? Or is it something you've read before? This speculative I think that's extremely speculative, very, very speculative, either behind him.
Excellent. So this is the other half of what the brother was trying to do when a person makes should have a law This is in response to an act of kindness that Allah has done to the person but harm is much much greater than that is to recognize the perfection of Allah subhanho wa Taala and every noble characteristic, every beautiful attribute and to praise Allah subhanho wa Taala for having that, right. So praise will be for Allah whether we recognize it or not, and All praise is for Allah subhana wa tada alone. So now we want to see how does that come into play? And so now I'm going to give you guys the answers. I'm keeping the tickets for myself in Sharma
Okay, go for a lot more.
Okay, I'll accept that as well. Except that
you don't know that one. I'll give you one last try. Okay, go for it.
That's been answered already. We're just focusing now on time Alhamdulillah Allahu Akbar.
Going once going, last one, if you save the people mind, save the people.
Go ahead, we're waiting for you to save the people.
so we're gonna break this down in Sharla. So let us start off with nyla. That's what we started off with. This is the essence of self hate. This is the fulfillment of our purpose of creation to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the statement La ilaha illAllah. It actually means Lama Abu Dhabi Hopkin in the law, that there is no one truly, truly worthy of worship, except Allah subhana wa Tada. So this is the recognition of the fulfilment of our purpose. This is the key to agenda. This is a key to our deeds being accepted. This is the key to us, you know, not being eternally damned into the hellfire. That is the foundation of our discussion, that without the statement of
law in the law, then all other discussions are absolutely useless. And now we get to the statement of Subhan Allah. And the way we want to look at planula is firstly, what does it mean? Subhana Allah means to free Allah subhanaw taala from every imperfection and every negative attribute, right? So when you look inside the Koran, you'll often find the terms to Pinilla for Subhan Allah er now you should recall that how Exalted is Allah, how free is Allah from the ship that these people are committing? A second lesson we learned from this is that when a person sees something that is displeasing to him, then it is allowed to say Subhana Allah, because when they saw something evil
happening, they used to say some kind of law. So when a person is in a state of calamity, he can say some kind of law. And that's what the brother was saying, when I say it was very speculative, there is actually this far fetched opinion, that should analyze an indication of having suffered is an indication of having supply. Now, this ties into the next segment, which is about handling and that handlers to recognize every single positive attribute of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then to praise him for it, and then to praise him for it. It's not about receiving things, but it's about being grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, when you tie these two together, patience and gratitude,
every single moment of our lives will revolve around patience and gratitude, either a moment of trial, you need to be patient, or a moment of prosperity. You need to be grateful to Allah subhana wa Tada. You want to take your demand even higher than you figure out how to be grateful while you're in the moment of trial while you're in a moment of trial. Now, the last statement, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar means that Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the most important, Allah is the most magnificent. Why is this statement relevant? Because from the greatest trials of this dunya is that you will be distracted by this dunya right, that is the greatest trial that this dunya becomes a
distraction. And from time to time when we become distracted. A person here's the statement, Allahu Akbar, that Allah is greater, that which is with Allah is greater, the reward of Allah is greater, Jenna is greater the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala is even greater, right? So this brings perspective back into an individual's life. So you see that these four statements, all combined together, they do, you know, put perspective into our lives and our lives should revolve around these statements, right? Where if a person sees something bad, he is patient, he says some kind of law, the person is in a statement in a state of prosperity. He praises a lot says Alhamdulillah a
person gets distracted. Then he says Allahu Akbar reminding himself that Allah is greater than the foundation of all these statements is the statement of the law in the law is a statement of the international law. Is that clear? everyone understood that? Fantastic. Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes on to say, ordering good is a charitable act. forbidding evil is a charitable
Act. In fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala when he describes the home of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam as being from the best of nations, this is a characteristic that he gives them. He says conocido matino collegiately ness that morona bill Murphy was and how Nana Luca manana Villa that you are the best people ever raised up for mankind, you enjoy what is good, and forbid what is evil, and you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And with these three characteristics, Allah subhanho wa Taala, he brings, you know, her back into the soma, he brings his back into the soma. But when we leave in joining the good and forbidding the evil, then we see that the state that we are in, we see
that the state that we're in, and this concept of enjoining, good and forbidding evil. This is like a summarized version of Islam, that if you see someone doing something good, you try to partake in it, if you see someone doing something bad, then there's various levels of either stopping him if you're in authority to do so, or speaking out against it if you're not in authority, or at the very least you hate it in your heart. Right. This is a summary of Islam altogether. Eman manoli Rahim Allah He has a very interesting commentary on this. And he points out that enjoining good and forbidding evil is perhaps the highest level of sadaqa, the highest level of sadaqa. From what
perspective, from the perspective that the earlimart, they agreed that I'm going to build an alpha here and then enjoying the good and forbidding evil is always one of two types of form. It is either for the iron or for the fire, there is either an individualistic obligation, or it is a communal obligation. There's not just about giving sadaqa but rather it is a level of obligation, it is a level of obligation. So now, when does it become for the end, enjoying the good and forbidding evil, obviously, when you have the ability to do so you have the authority to do so. When is it for the key fire is when there's someone you know that when and it's not on the shoulders of one roof
person, but it's on the shoulders of the whole community. It's on the shoulders of the whole community, meaning that there always has to be one person in the community that is willing to enjoin, good and forbid evil. There's always one person in the individual who can enjoin good or forbid evil. Now we move on to the part and having sexual intercourse with your wife is a charitable act, having intercourse with your wife is a charitable act. And here the scholar is different is the charitable act. Is the charity in the act of doing it in halal manner? Or is it in the past that you have a righteous intention? Or is it in the fact that you have a righteous intention? One of the
scholars of the past even put a verse called scholar Paddy, he said that it is just in the act of itself. That is long as you're doing it in a halal manner, then you will get an agent for doing it in the halal manner, you will get the idea of doing it in a halal manner, but other scholars from them was acknowledged from them was a lie to me. They said no, then in order for this act and any other mobile act, to become an act of charity, what has to take place, you have to have a good and righteous intention, you have to have a good and righteous intention. So what would possibly be a good and righteous intention from having intercourse with your wife, when the good and righteous
intention is that you're protecting both of yourselves from committing Zina. So that is a good and righteous intention, that you have the intention that Allah will bless you with a righteous offspring, then this is a righteous intention. You having the the intention that you want to do something that is pleasing to your wife, then this is a righteous intention. So these are some of the intentions that the scholars of the past mentioned. Mmm I know you know him Allah. He actually comments by saying himself when he commented on this Hadith, this hadith contains evidence that permissible acts can become active obedience due to sound intentions. For example, sexual
intercourse can become an act of worship, if the person intended to fulfill the right of his wife, and to treat her well as Allah has commanded him or for the sake of seeking a pious son or to keep himself chaste or his wife chaste, keeping them both from looking at what is forbidden. Thinking about that, or considering that or due to any other price intention or due to any other price intention. So this teaches us that even the act of intercourse can become an act of sadaqa. Now remember, no Rahim Allah, He leads us into another discussion, and that is, turn converting regular mundane, you know, acts into acts of charity. And that simple principle of, you know, always seeking
a good intention behind the acts that we do, they will magnify the reward of your deeds. So when an individual is sleeping, you know, strength to wake up provider to worship Allah in individual eats, you know, strength to to help his community,
make the community go forward, right, an individual
you know, what else can an individual do? we socialize, so we socialize not just for the sake of socializing, but for the sake of that we let our bodies and our and our minds be at ease for a while so that we can strive even harder in worshipping Allah.
panel Tada, the regular day to day acts that we do, we can turn them into absolutely bada. Now, here's something very, very beautiful. And, you know, in our discussion for today, I think this is perhaps one of the most beautiful elements that we will discuss of Islam.
And that is the mercy and generosity of Allah subhanho wa Taala the mercy generosity of Allah subhanaw taala there was a famous scholar of the past by the name of Abu Sulayman at Dar dharani, Abu Salim and a dharani. He said, If a person does a good act without any intention in it, his intention to choose Islam, over all other religions would be sufficient for him. His intention to choose Islam over all other religions would be sufficient for him. So the fact that even when we do these mundane acts, the fact that we intentionally, intentionally and consciously chose Islam over all other religions, then this is enough for Allah subhanho wa Taala, to reward us for our good
deeds. This is enough for Allah subhanho wa Taala to reward us for our good deeds. Then we conclude on this section of the Hadith by learning PS by learning PS. So now when you look at what are the things in Islam, that shows us what is mandatory, what is prohibited, what is allowed, what is not allowed, and all of the shediac will revolve around three main sources of legislation, three main sources of legislation, who can give them what are the three main sources of legislation? Go ahead.
For Ensenada and you mixed the third word up, it starts with age, but not it's the
age Ma. Excellent. So these are the three sources of Islamic legislation. They are for the Koran, which is the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Sunnah, which is the statements, actions and acceptances of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then each map, which is the consensus of the companions, and of the scholars at one given time, on one particular issue on one given ruling on one given ruling, these are the three main sources of legislation, then some of them are that I'm in fact, most of them will die with the exception of the vahi method. They introduced a fourth source of legislation. And that is Korea's that is Korea's the something we've discussed in
the past with something like marijuana, right? We will all agree that marijuana is heroin. Correct? We all agree marijuana is heroin. But how do we agree that marijuana is heroin? marijuana is not mentioned in the Quran. It's not mentioned in the sooner there is no email from the Sahaba. From the earlier scholars. Where do we find out that marijuana is held on by making PS by making PS. And this is what the Messenger of Allah says Allah, He teaches us in this Hadith, something that is called as an ox, that you establish something based upon its opposite. So here's the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam, rather than just giving the Sahaba a simple answer by saying, yes, you will get reward.
The messenger lessons on them is teaching him how to understand he's teaching him the basics of logic. He's telling him that if this man was to put his private parts in a place, that is, how long would he be sinful for it? And the man obviously, if he says, Yes, he would be sinful for it. So he says, just like he would be sinful, if he put it in how long then when he puts it in halaal, he will be rewarded for it, he will be rewarded for it. And this is one of the proofs that the scholars use to establish. Yes, this is one of the proofs that scholars use to establish qriocity messenger Allah says Adam was teaching edge to the companions. Now when you study with Solon effect, you'll actually
see that Clearasil acts this type of gas is one of the weaker forms of PS. But for the sake of our discussion, we just want to prove the permissibility of PS in our face, we want to promote
talk about the permissibility of PS in our face. So now let us look at some of the things that we learned from this hadith before we move on to the hadith of Abu huraira. Allahu Allah. So one of the things we learned from this is that there's not a single individual, except that he has the ability to give sadaqa right, there is not an individual on this planet, except that he has the ability to give sadaqa an individual who cannot speak, who cannot even move, let's just say he's paralyzed, he can also give sadaqa by at least not harming the people. Right. So that is the lowest form of sadaqa at that time, so everyone is able to give sadaqa likewise, from this Hadith, we learned that the
companions are the Allahu anhu they had this mentality of competing with one another for the Acura and that is something that we need to bring back. The see this sense of competition are competing for the accurate think about ourselves. Do we have any companions, any friends, that we compete with them for the sake of the genre that we say you know, what, I compete with this individual to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it's not as if you know, we get together and say, Hey, I'm going to be competing with you know, it's whenever you see an opportunity Have you tried to be the first one to do it. You try to
be the first one to do it. Number three, this hadith shows us that it is allowed to ask a scholar, the reasoning for his verdict, it shows that you are allowed to ask the scholar, the reasoning for his verdict. This companion he wasn't sure. So we asked our messenger of Allah, if we do this in a halal way will get rewarded. And the messenger lesson he went on to explain, showing that you're allowed to ask a reasoning for it, you're allowed to ask a reasoning for it.
Now let's move on to the hadith of Abu huraira. Addis Ababa hora de la Juan. And there's just two main things I want to mention over here, and the hadith of Baba, whatever the last one.
And that is the discussion of who is better, the poor person that is patient, or the rich person that is thankful, the poor person that is patient, or the rich person that is thankful. The Hadith, or whatever, or the Allahu anhu. It shows us that the rich person who is thankful is better than the poor person that is patient. Who remembers how that haddix shows that? How does the heavy Civil War era show us that the rich person was thankful is better than the poor person who was patient?
by reason you can tell them good, we'll come to that secondary. But we want to see from the editor, Baba Herrera. How does that had these shows that the rich person who was thankful is better than the poor person that is patient?
Who remembers the headache of O'Hara? Let's do that first. What was the heady Civil War era?
At the beginning of this halaqa, we mentioned to Heidi, what was the second heavy, heavy Civil War era? What was the difference between the two heavy?
That's for me, ma'am knows what we're talking about in today's halaqa, literally, not even half an hour ago.
I said there's a second version of this heading.
Fantastic. And that is the point that at the end of the Hadith, and I'll re summarize the Hadith, that the poor companions came complaining on messenger of Allah, the rich companions have run away with all the rewards, they pray, just like we pray the fastest like we fast, but they given sadaqa that which we cannot give. And if we slaves, that which we cannot free to teach us something that will make us equal to them. Then the Messenger of Allah says and taught them to say, after every Salah 33 times to kind of left 33 times Alhamdulillah and 33 times Allahu Akbar, and whoever does this, no one will come better than him except for the one who did this and more. So eventually, the
rich companions they find out about this and they start doing this as well. So the poor companions, they come back and you start complaining even more, they say, well, messenger of Allah, they found out you know what you told us? Then the Messenger of Allah says Allah and he says, and this is what we were looking for at the end of the Hadith. Valley, CAFOD Lola, you're cheeky Manisha, there is the benevolence, the favor of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he gives to whom He wills. So the rich person that is grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala has a higher place than the poor person that is patient. Because this person has everything that the poor person has, is doing the exact same deeds
that the poor person does. But he was doing even more than the poor person cannot do, he's doing even more that the poor person cannot do. So now this shows us something that as a Muslim, we need to know our true capabilities, our true level of emotion, our true level of taqwa. And that is that if an individual knows that he can be patient upon the fitna of wealth, then he should strive to be wealthy, so that he can spread the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala and reach a higher level of gratitude. But if he knows that worth is going to be too much of a pfitzner, then he should be content with the little that he has, and be patient upon the difficult times. And this would be
better for him. And this would be better for him. Now there's several narrations from the predecessors that I want to share with you that talk about wealth in America, my daughter in law when he comments about the 10 Sahaba that were promised paradise, right? Three of the big ones that were mentioned in this Hadith, they were abroad of management of Abu Bakr Siddiq, and of mine of not finally the Allahu anhu. He comes in these three particular companions, that what made them so special was the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala used to give them so much wealth, but it never used to reach their heart. They they didn't have an attachment to it, they didn't have an attachment
to it, it would come to their hand, and they would let it go right away, it would never reach their hearts. And that is what made them so special. That is what made them so special. And one of the most fundamental principles. I remember when we had our discussion on Islamic finance. The first rule in Islamic Finance, is that your Eman and taqwa always has to be greater than your finances.
should never be a time where your email and stopwatch is secondary to your finances or your finances is greater than a minor taqwa. Because when that happens, that is when an individual becomes destroyed, that is when an individual becomes destroyed. So these are some of the similarities between the two Hadith and they just want to extract some of those lessons from that Hadith as well. And the last thing that will mention to conclude our discussion, is that in this we see that the competition between the companions, it wasn't due to like a tribal competition. So because the one companion group of companions from Makkah, the other ones from Medina, it wasn't because one was
from, you know, a darker skin color, the other ones are better skin color, it wasn't because one was rich, or one was poor, this concept of hating the rich and, you know, looking down upon the poor, it didn't exist, Islam came to eradicate all of that. And the higher goal of competing with one another for agenda, that's what eliminated it right. So that any form of Islam had no place in Islam, because they're too busy competing for the ACA. So any play any Islam had no place in Islam, because they were too busy competing for the ACA. And this is what you see in this study, that there is no animosity between the hatred, there is no animosity between the rich and the poor, they got along
cohesively. As you look in our times, we have this concept of you know, the 1%, looking down upon the 99% and 99%, rebelling against the 1%, you know, asking for the right stuff is done prevented that, because the ultimate goal was not the wealth, but it was the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Tada. And when the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala is higher than it will eliminate those differences. And the last thing we'll mention was on
the last portion of the headings were the Messenger of Allah. So Solomon is talking about how sexual intercourse is an act of charity. Now, when you look at sexual intercourse from other religions, you will notice that there is like a great disparity that concern religions, sexual intercourse is actually hot on that, you know, you should not be having sexual intercourse, right, certain branches of Christianity, this is what they preach, that there are priests, there are ministers there, Pope's they can to get married at all, they can't get married at all. And then we see the results of that as well, that there are certain things that mankind was not created for. And that was to restrain
his sexual desire, but rather, mankind was there to express the sexual desire within limits. And then you see the exact opposite end of what our societies are sort of going through, which is the
atheist version of society where there's no code of conduct, there's a lack of morality, whatever we deem to be good, as good, whatever we deem to be bad is bad. You know, as long as you know, you're not harming me directly, I don't care what you do, like this version of society. And this is the exact opposite extreme, and obviously, that there are dangers in that as well, right? children growing up without parents too many diseases that come out of it, person that has a person having, you know, a sex addiction, right, certain disorders, they were unknown, you know, prior to this century, right. And these sort of things, you know, this is what an untamed and restrained and and
limited society will eventually lead towards, to the need to be those strategies. And those are the boundaries that Islam came with. So here, when you look at the Hadith of the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam, he teaches us that when you have a sexual desire, it should be fulfilled with your spouse, and outside of your spouse, it should not be fulfilled. The second thing you notice from this is also how tame the language of the Messenger of Allah and of the companions is, that they never used any of the private parts specifically by me, right? And this is something that you even find in the Quran, that the act of intercourse is not specifically mentioned. Right? But unless God
uses Kenya for it, he uses
what's the word? I'm looking for a similes and metaphors for it in the Quran. So it's not something that's explicitly spoken about. So we learned that a person should be balanced in this, that you shouldn't be very explicit. And you know, you should still retain that shyness and modesty, but at the same time, sex is something that is a part of our faith and is a part of our religion, and should be discussed within the boundaries of Islam. It shouldn't be discussed within the boundaries of Islam or law husana are done with some a lot more sentiment article in Vienna, Muhammad Ali, he was soft behaved, the center. Now I do have a couple of announcements and then we'll open up the
floor for q&a inshallah.
announcement number one is that this Friday, there's not going to be Hanukkah numero uno is fully headed, but we have a guest speaker from out of town coming aboard the ship is going to be speaking about how to attain paradise in our homes. So the original topic I gave you is how to cope with being single. That's not what he's covering. He's going to be covering how to attain paradise in our homes. And then announcement number two, is that the same instructor Dr. Bashir, he is the one who has teaching the parenting workshop on Saturday. And that is how to raise your children according to the Quran and Sunnah. And I see there at least, you know, a good few
number of people in this room that haven't registered for that class. So if you haven't registered for that class, I urge you to register for that class, particularly as men, we don't know how to be good fathers myself included in this. We are not good fathers towards our children. And even if you're not married, a time will come inshallah, where you will become a father. So you should learn that knowledge before it becomes mandatory upon you. So please register for this class, because it's very, very important, particularly for the men that we step up and we play greater roles in the lives of our children and we learn how to do that. So the class is going to be taking place on
Saturday from 10am to 6pm. And you can register online at www I see.ca. And the third and last announcement is that next Wednesday, one Wednesday from today, there will be no Hanukkah there will be no Hanukkah at this summer. So we're going to be taking a break from all Holocaust in this masala for next Wednesday only. So one day we will have off and then we will go back to our normal rotation of Fridays and Wednesdays Fridays and Wednesdays until we complete in amanotes 40 Hadith and according to my estimate, by the second week of December inshallah, we would have completed all of union imama no is 42. All the nominal is 42 heavy. So we'll conclude with that technical long we'll
be having a shadow and I'll add a structural core to the lake
