Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh we're back again, can never stop talking about Abubakar, Allah Juan.

00:00:12--> 00:00:14

Tino, this man

00:00:15--> 00:00:17

has spent all of his money

00:00:19--> 00:00:20

three times in his life.

00:00:21--> 00:01:00

That tells you the concept of yaqeen. When someone knows that Allah, Allah has given him everything and if he were to give for the sake of Allah, Allah will give him back more and more and more, because that's what Allah promise in the Quran, Allah will give you multiple times, 10 times 100 times 700 times. So those people they made business with Allah subhanaw taala right away, and Abubakar de la one. At the beginning of Islam, he spent his entire money and he saved all his money again during the time of the Hydra. And after that when there was a need when the Prophet Salam would do, like a fundraiser for the need of the Muslims of America will be in the front. So at the

00:01:00--> 00:01:44

very beginning he used to set free the slaves and this is where he spent his money. This is why one of the titles of a bucket is attic. an attic means someone who will be saved from hellfire. May Allah subhanaw taala save us from hellfire. This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, like there are many items, the Quran that praises abubaker and I think we shared one in our series of the part of the family I hadn't gotten to the inhibitor or to your appeal Allah whenever he gave he gave only for the sake of Allah he's not waiting, you know for thank you from people he's not waiting to use these people, or that they can he can ask them to work for him because when he spent his time

00:01:44--> 00:02:12

setting free the slaves his father was against that. He said like Why didn't you free some slaves and then get them to work for you so you can make something out of them. So remember this you give only for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's that was like at one stage of his life. And when the professor Selim, you know, immigrated, he was the company of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, and he had all his money with him. And he told the processor and I saved all this money so that I can use it during our immigration.

00:02:13--> 00:02:49

He prepared the comment for the prophet SAW Selim during the immigration from Mecca to Medina, but the prophet of Islam told him I'll have to pay you the money for that. Then third time when the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, when the Roma was in need, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked everybody to donate, Omar said, Man, this is your golden chance to be number one and beat abubaker. So he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the professor asked him Omar, what did you bring? He said, I brought half my wealth have my property prophets of Allah. And the roof Salam was so impressive. What did you leave for your families that I left the other half.

00:02:49--> 00:03:11

And he's sitting there, like feeling so happy that I'm going to be number one. This is where they used to compete for the extra. But then a robot walks in and the professor asked him, What did you bring? abubaker? He said, I brought everything prophet of Allah. And look at the next question. The Prophet said, What did you leave for your family? He said, I left Allah.

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

Can you stop and think about this.

00:03:15--> 00:03:40

When you give you give what Allah has given you. But this takes a big appeal in the heart. So when abubaker said this is teaching us a lesson, trust Allah only give your money will not decrease, Allah will give you more, because Allah mentioned this in sort of 14 and number seven, why is that then buku bukem law in Chicago to

00:03:42--> 00:03:54

comb, Allah. Allah said that standard he said if you are grateful, when I give you your share, I will give you more. May Allah subhana wa Taala make it easy for us

00:03:55--> 00:03:59

to think of whatever Allah has given us as a trust

00:04:00--> 00:04:03

that we have to give back and we have to share
