I want to share a story with you. I have observed management offices reporting in Sahih al Bukhari that Abdullah reminded me of when he left Makkah and he migrated to Medina. He left everything behind everything he owned, he left it behind. And when he arrived into Medina, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam paired them up with another companion by the name of Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabia, and I want you to look at the generosity of Saudi Arabia. He's never made up their mind even before. The only thing he knows is that this man is Muslim and he loves Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what is Saudi Arabia tell him? He tells him, I have two

00:00:34--> 00:01:13

homes, choose any one of my two homes, and it's yours. I have two businesses choose any one of my two businesses, and it's yours. Look at that generosity, Allahu Akbar. Now, can you imagine someone offers you a home? Would you accept it? Someone offers you a business? Would you accept it? Well, let's look at the mentality of Abdullah smadav. He says, Show me where the marketplace is, show me where the marketplace is. And he goes and he starts trading from something as simple as dried yogurt, till eventually he gets some gold. And with that gold he gets married. And with that after his marriage, he has a Lima. So someone that started off poor but was willing to work hard, and

Allah subhanaw taala provided for them. And this is the Prophetic mentality that you have to be willing to work hard for your wealth, that the best wealth that you can earn is with your two own two hands. And when you take that step and when you put your best foot forward, DEP sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that if you were to trust in Allah, a trust that he is truly deserving, he would provide for you just like He provides for the bird that leaves its nest early in the morning hungry and comes back at night with its stomach full. Allah subhanho wa Taala will provide for you but you need to take that first step and work hard for that wealth.
