hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah He was so happy woman why Allah,

00:00:06--> 00:00:48

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a hadith he mentioned a definition for me Skene a one who is needy, we know that Allah Subhana Allah defined in the Quran that there are four Ara, and there are muskie and those who are poor, impoverished, those who are needy, and there's very, maybe a very fine line between the definition of what is apparent and miskeen which I won't go into in this video, but maybe in sha Allah in another video, or in this hadith the Prophet sallallahu sallam said Lee said Myskina lady Thoreau, who a tumbler to Wallet tomorrow attain one comma two well Allah lock methane in the man mosquito lady yet if the miskeen the needy, and it's almost like saying, the true

00:00:48--> 00:01:01

you know, needy is not someone that goes and is satisfied or is returned, or he's given one day two or two dates or a morsel or two morsels, and that colors he goes,

00:02:03--> 00:02:33

He's not begging, He's not asking you. So he's not Miskin. So the process of saying beware that don't think that just because somebody isn't asking that he's okay. So look out for those people.

00:02:34--> 00:02:47

They're just, they're just happy they're satisfied with what they have. And so don't think that they don't deserve your charity or do your help look out for these people because they couldn't be there in the community, and they need your support. Allow them side
