for her do that

00:00:21--> 00:00:23

want to share with you the law

00:00:28--> 00:00:29

so the Law

00:00:32--> 00:00:35

Society of America was in

00:00:37--> 00:00:40

America biographer will be learning in a Sri planner regime

00:00:43--> 00:00:46

in Manila home at a equateur who is alone

a llama Salaam humid in Wagga castle later Anna Ibrahim

Ibrahim freedom achieved a lot about God's

00:01:06--> 00:01:07

grace he

00:01:13--> 00:01:16

respects and listen listeners salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:01:19--> 00:01:27

We gather for the second part of the seed, and commentary of sort of professional

00:01:30--> 00:01:41

as I mentioned last week, sort of the French is about is a very early makansutra in terms of its ordering, or it's the eighth, ninth.

00:01:43--> 00:01:46

And in terms of Revelation, it's the 10th.

00:01:52--> 00:02:07

In a very simplistic way, we could divide the contents or sort of the Federal into three parts, they are all interconnected, but three distinct sections. The first one, which we covered last week,

00:02:09--> 00:02:15

consists of a number of verses in which our last panel horadada, at the beginning of the surah

00:02:16--> 00:02:17


00:02:19--> 00:02:22

by a number of things.

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

And then having swore

00:02:28--> 00:02:30

by these few things,

00:02:31--> 00:02:39

last panel without our mentions the message and the complement of these us, and the message is simply

00:02:40--> 00:02:44

that the nations of before namely

00:02:45--> 00:02:53

the people of the people of the moon, and the people of Pharaoh, they rejected their messengers. And

00:02:54--> 00:02:59

as a result, laws, punishments befell them and how Allah destroy them.

00:03:02--> 00:03:06

They spread corruption in the land, they transgressed.

00:03:07--> 00:03:22

And levina dot o fillable. Are those who transgressed in the lands for a federal fee Hill facade so they're made excessive, they're in corruption for somebody who might have book assault either. So your Lord poured

00:03:24--> 00:03:26

the scourge of his punishment on

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

indeed, your Lord is watchful.

00:03:33--> 00:03:48

So that was the section which we completed last week, and that's where we stopped. This now leads us to the next section of sort of infection, which is connected and I'll explain the connection later. But here last panel, who would the other says

00:03:49--> 00:03:55

family son or daughter or drama Hall and Ama horfield? All or be a Chroma?

00:03:56--> 00:03:58

What a man is ama para, la,

00:03:59--> 00:04:00

la be?

00:04:01--> 00:04:06

Color Bella, Luna Nia team, what are the How to nada?

00:04:08--> 00:04:10

Luna terasaki a llama.

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

Lastly, he's

00:04:16--> 00:04:18

asked for man, so as for man,

00:04:20--> 00:04:21

when his law tests

00:04:23--> 00:04:25

and then honors him

00:04:27--> 00:04:27

and then

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

things and

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

he's says,

00:04:33--> 00:04:36

I'll be a crumb My Lord has

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

asked for when his Lord tests

00:04:46--> 00:04:48

and then restricts His provision

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

for him,

00:04:54--> 00:04:58

then man says, My Lord has disgraced me

00:05:03--> 00:05:03


00:05:06--> 00:05:07

you do not honor the orphan.

00:05:09--> 00:05:12

And nor do you encourage one another to feed the poor.

00:05:15--> 00:05:18

And you devour inheritance,

00:05:21--> 00:05:24

an excessive devour, or a passionate devouring

00:05:26--> 00:05:28

and you love wealth

00:05:31--> 00:05:32

and excessive love.

00:05:34--> 00:05:39

That's the simple translation of these verses. This is more or less a second section of sort of professional.

00:05:43--> 00:05:50

And it's actually a whole, all of these verses in the second section, former how

00:05:51--> 00:05:59

they are all connected. And this section is connected to the previous part of sort of infection, as well as the M part.

00:06:00--> 00:06:02

Let's look at this section first.

00:06:05--> 00:06:09

Law says as for man, when his law tests

00:06:11--> 00:06:15

and he honors him and blesses him favors him with his bounty.

00:06:16--> 00:06:18

The man says My Lord has honored me

00:06:21--> 00:06:26

as well when his law tests and restricts His provision for him.

00:06:27--> 00:06:29

When he says, My Lord has disgraced me,

00:06:31--> 00:06:36

these two verses speak of a certain aspect of man's nature, which is

00:06:38--> 00:06:40

his extreme in gratitude.

00:06:43--> 00:06:43


00:06:46--> 00:06:48

his impulsive nature is instability

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

is rashness.

00:06:54--> 00:06:59

And the best way of understanding these two verses is by other verses of the

00:07:03--> 00:07:05

last panel without essays

00:07:07--> 00:07:10

sort of the mileage killer in the

00:07:11--> 00:07:12

desert in the shower.

00:07:18--> 00:07:18

room and

00:07:20--> 00:07:21

watch America

00:07:22--> 00:07:30

in Santa Monica, who is an associate shortages with AMS romanova, Illinois,

00:07:31--> 00:07:32

and this continue.

00:07:33--> 00:07:44

Before I explain the beginning part let's just look at three of the lobes versus the last panel of diagnoses. In Ireland, Santa Lucia. Man has been created Hulu

00:07:45--> 00:07:47


00:07:48--> 00:07:56

in Amazon, with Amazon averages or when misfortune or evil befalls him, he panics

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

he is excessively panic

00:08:00--> 00:08:06

with Amazon, Edelman or a man good fortune meets and he is withholding

00:08:11--> 00:08:13

these three verses

00:08:14--> 00:08:16

accurately describe

00:08:17--> 00:08:20

in fact the just one verse in insan, a holy

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

man has been created Hello.

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

And the meaning of Hulu is

00:08:28--> 00:08:29


00:08:32--> 00:08:38

Someone who goes to extremes in moderates, someone who lacks self control

00:08:39--> 00:08:40

and we all live

00:08:42--> 00:08:48

and then Allah expands on that one verse about men being intemperate.

00:08:50--> 00:09:00

about going to extremes about fluctuate about lacking self control. Allah describes it with the words in them a subtle shovel

00:09:01--> 00:09:07

when misfortune behold Him, man is panic he panics great.

00:09:10--> 00:09:15

Wait I'm a soul hater menorah, and when good fortune meets and his withhold.

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

Now, there are many such verses throughout the whole of God

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

which speak on the same topic.

00:09:26--> 00:09:39

And these two are sort of infection. I'm just one of a series of verses, which describe man's unstable fluctuating in moderate intemperate nature.

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

That he lacks self control. But in what way not lack self control in terms of succumbing to temptation. That's That's true, but that's another topic. This is a much more subtle psychological state of man, which leads him to behave in a certain way and especially his thinking

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Feeling, all of these verses are about thought and feeling.

00:10:04--> 00:10:09

And what this these thoughts and feelings and emotions ultimately lead to.

00:10:12--> 00:10:16

In order to understand them, allow me to explain in the following manner.

00:10:17--> 00:10:18


00:10:20--> 00:10:22

treats his relationship with Allah.

00:10:23--> 00:10:27

Like any other relationship with an it with another human being.

00:10:29--> 00:10:33

The way we interact with each other, what we think of each

00:10:35--> 00:10:39

how we behave towards each other, what expectations we have of each other.

00:10:44--> 00:10:48

Man treats last panel with Allah in the same way.

00:10:53--> 00:10:57

When man needs something, he turns to Allah.

00:10:59--> 00:11:00

We pin

00:11:02--> 00:11:05

besieging him, supplicating to him,

00:11:07--> 00:11:11

groveling before him, making all kinds of promises.

00:11:14--> 00:11:19

And then as soon as last Hannah who with Allah relieves them of a suffering.

00:11:21--> 00:11:30

He ignores a law quite simply, just as we forever complain about people users exploiting us.

00:11:34--> 00:11:39

A friend in need is a friend indeed, which you can read both ways.

00:11:41--> 00:11:42

In a good way.

00:11:44--> 00:11:51

A true friend is someone who comes to your aid and assistance when you require them when you are in need.

00:11:52--> 00:11:53

And in a negative way.

00:11:55--> 00:11:59

Friends are those people who call themselves your friends when they need you.

00:12:04--> 00:12:16

And how often have we experienced? And how often do we complain of people contacting us meteors, hovering around us,

00:12:18--> 00:12:19

being with us,

00:12:20--> 00:12:24

communicating with us when they need us.

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

But as soon as that need has been fulfilled, as soon as our usefulness has expired,

00:12:33--> 00:12:38

they make a disappearing act. We don't hear from them, we don't see them.

00:12:40--> 00:12:46

And then again, if and when the occasion arises. They need as again,

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

they'll contact us

00:12:51--> 00:12:58

and pre empting our inquiry as to why they haven't been in touch. They'll offer all manner of excuses.

00:13:02--> 00:13:07

We experience that from others. And undoubtedly we do that to others ourselves.

00:13:10--> 00:13:14

And we treat a last round of data in the same way.

00:13:17--> 00:13:21

We use a law we abuse our relationship with

00:13:24--> 00:13:30

our relationship with Allah is one of fulfilling our needs. It's a selfish one.

00:13:32--> 00:13:40

And a lot describes that beautiful universal for him. And before we understand the verse, imagine that you've actually helped someone

00:13:41--> 00:13:46

they are indebted to you. And you haven't just done one small favor to them.

00:13:47--> 00:13:47


00:13:49--> 00:13:52

extended a great favor. You've helped them immense

00:13:55--> 00:13:59

and you've placed them under an obligation and they only

00:14:00--> 00:14:01

they are in debt to

00:14:03--> 00:14:09

you now that they know that. Now one day you happen to be with

00:14:10--> 00:14:20

a large group of people and that same person comes along the one who is in debt to the one that you save the one that you helped

00:14:24--> 00:14:26

the one who is obliged

00:14:30--> 00:14:33

and in a way you are happy to see them from a distance

00:14:35--> 00:14:37

but as they draw closer

00:14:39--> 00:14:43

and you anticipate their greeting

00:14:46--> 00:14:52

they walk past you and totally ignore you as though you don't even exist.

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

They know you they've seen

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

but they walk straight past you

00:15:00--> 00:15:16

They don't even acknowledge your presence. Imagine how hurtful how insulting that is. And in fact, what would you think of such a person? How selfish, how ungrateful, how cold

00:15:18--> 00:15:18


00:15:20--> 00:15:23

any number of other labels that you could give?

00:15:25--> 00:15:47

Well, you mentioned that see, listen to the following verse of the last panel who says, What either muslin son or daughter of the owner the gym be he or garden Oh call him for the maka Schaffner? amadora humara Catalina mirana illa de casa Casa unilin mustafina ma kameyama. Allah says,

00:15:48--> 00:15:49


00:15:50--> 00:15:53

misfortune or when an affliction befalls man.

00:15:55--> 00:16:08

He calls answers, lying on his side, the gym, or are in a while seated, or Arima or what standing meaning at every moment of the day as every time

00:16:10--> 00:16:11

in every posture,

00:16:13--> 00:16:23

whether lying down sleeping or attempting to sleep, when lying down attempting to sleep or standing or sitting, any posture any moment of the day.

00:16:24--> 00:16:26

The Ana he calls out

00:16:27--> 00:16:33

for the maca, Chef Mourinho Dora, then when we remove that suffering from him,

00:16:34--> 00:16:40

Morocco lemmya, Donna, in a total Messiah, he passes by as though he never ever called at us

00:16:41--> 00:16:49

for an affliction that befell him in this way, the deeds of the transgressors have been beautified for.

00:16:51--> 00:16:59

So we are selfish and abusive and exploitative in our relationship with the last panel.

00:17:00--> 00:17:02

And as part of that,

00:17:06--> 00:17:07


00:17:08--> 00:17:12

treat a lot as we would treat another person.

00:17:13--> 00:17:14

Now imagine

00:17:16--> 00:17:19

if someone calls you to their foreign invitation.

00:17:23--> 00:17:25

They're holding a gathering at their house.

00:17:26--> 00:17:29

So they extend an invitation to you.

00:17:30--> 00:17:32

This is a private small gathering.

00:17:35--> 00:17:38

Or they give you a gift, but still they come and they offer you a gift.

00:17:40--> 00:17:42

When they offer you a gift,

00:17:43--> 00:17:44

you are happy.

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

You're immensely pleased.

00:17:51--> 00:17:51

you're grateful.

00:17:53--> 00:17:57

Their act of kindness warms you.

00:17:58--> 00:18:02

It's endears you. It's endears them to you.

00:18:03--> 00:18:05

You feel friendly towards them.

00:18:06--> 00:18:08

It makes your day

00:18:10--> 00:18:20

there's a spring in your step. Because you've received the gift. It makes you feel worth while worthy. It gives you value you feel wanted.

00:18:22--> 00:18:28

And for a moment, all your other problems disappear. The fact that someone has given you a gift makes you happy.

00:18:31--> 00:18:34

Now imagine the same person A few days later.

00:18:36--> 00:18:39

They give someone else a gift, another gift of another time.

00:18:40--> 00:18:42

And you learn about it.

00:18:43--> 00:18:47

But they will they do not give you the same gift.

00:18:49--> 00:18:54

Now all of a sudden, this deprivation of a gift from the same person

00:18:55--> 00:19:13

may makes you question their friendship, their loyalty to you. It makes you self doubt. You makes you doubt your own worth your own value. Despite all the other problems in your life, this consumes you eat you up. Why didn't

00:19:15--> 00:19:17

he or she gives me something.

00:19:20--> 00:19:26

So one acts of kindness makes your day and makes you feel elated and on top of the world.

00:19:27--> 00:19:30

And then one moment of deprivation

00:19:31--> 00:19:35

of withholding on their heart sensors

00:19:37--> 00:19:56

and sensors to the depths of despair. And we question ourselves we feel worthless. We feel unwanted. So we go through both extremes. This man is very fickle. We are very, very fickle in our friendships in our relationships.

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

Someone does some good as they can

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

make us happy.

00:20:03--> 00:20:12

And despite many moments of kindness, if someone does one wrong, that says, We hold that grudge against them.

00:20:14--> 00:20:15

And throughout the day,

00:20:17--> 00:20:23

every day of our lives, we experienced this fluctuation in our relationship with other people.

00:20:24--> 00:20:33

Sometimes we're elated, joyous, we feel on top of the world, sometimes we sink to depths of despair, doubt and hopelessness.

00:20:35--> 00:20:39

That same treatment, we meet out to last panel.

00:20:41--> 00:20:47

So this is in terms of wealth and riches. last panel without essays and these two verses are sort of the fetch

00:20:49--> 00:20:50

them of the law.

00:20:51--> 00:20:54

So as for man, when his law tests

00:20:56--> 00:20:56

for a crumb,

00:20:58--> 00:21:08

and then he honestly when I run, and he favors him with his blessings and bounties, and watts means his wealth, Allah gives him wealth

00:21:09--> 00:21:14

for poorer, a common man says, My Lord has offered me

00:21:15--> 00:21:15

What am I

00:21:17--> 00:21:18

asked for when

00:21:20--> 00:21:22

his law tests

00:21:25--> 00:21:36

and then restricts His provision restricts his systems for your poodle, Robbie Hannon, then he says, My Lord has disgraced.

00:21:37--> 00:21:39

You see, this is what we do with a law.

00:21:40--> 00:21:42

If a law gives us what we want,

00:21:43--> 00:21:44

we're happy.

00:21:45--> 00:21:47

We're happy with the law.

00:21:48--> 00:21:51

And we feel that Allah has honored and blessed us.

00:21:52--> 00:22:00

And despite all the other gifts and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala If ever a lot has or does not give us the one thing we want.

00:22:02--> 00:22:07

Or be a Hernan, we feel that our Lord has forsaken, abandoned us,

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

disgraced us.

00:22:11--> 00:22:18

So one wealth, or other material possessions, make us feel elated.

00:22:20--> 00:22:22

Happy on top of the world.

00:22:23--> 00:22:36

And then at times, when we feel deprived or robbed of one small thing, we seek to depths of despair. And we actually assign that blame to Allah. And we say Rob, be a Hannah, my lord has disgrace me.

00:22:39--> 00:22:40


00:22:41--> 00:22:43

what Islam teaches us

00:22:44--> 00:22:55

what the Quran tells us what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has told us is that a person's worth is not by wealth or material possessions, or even by the way others treat.

00:22:57--> 00:22:58

What's wealth?

00:23:00--> 00:23:02

Ultimately, what is wealth?

00:23:04--> 00:23:10

Ultimately, what is honor and dignity, and that is that we speak off

00:23:14--> 00:23:15

what's failing and men.

00:23:18--> 00:23:20

As one celebrity was asked,

00:23:23--> 00:23:24

Who has become quite famous?

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

And almost everybody

00:23:29--> 00:23:30

knows the celebrity.

00:23:32--> 00:23:34

But what do you say about fame?

00:23:36--> 00:23:43

And the answer was, I wouldn't wish fame on my enemy on my worst enemies dog.

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

I wouldn't wish fame on my worst enemies dog.

00:23:50--> 00:23:58

It's torture that they didn't say it's torture, this is my explanation. Fame, what is fame? Ultimately?

00:24:02--> 00:24:04

All this adulation, adoration,

00:24:06--> 00:24:07

all this respect.

00:24:11--> 00:24:15

True respect is when respectable people give you respect.

00:24:19--> 00:24:21

And ultimately, what is people's respect?

00:24:22--> 00:24:23

One day

00:24:27--> 00:24:31

they adore you. They elevate you. They respect you.

00:24:34--> 00:24:38

And at the same time, they have an insatiable appetite

00:24:42--> 00:24:45

for learning about your private affairs

00:24:46--> 00:24:53

and they will dig into your personal life, trying to find out everything about you in a worshipful way.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

And then when they come across something, one small thing one small indiscretion

00:25:00--> 00:25:25

One small misdemeanor. One mistake, you may not even be a mistake, it may just be a chink in the armor, it may just be one slight, one small thing, missing one small imperfection, which makes you less than perfect. And the same person will now lose all respect, all adoration, all adulation and worship for you.

00:25:26--> 00:25:26

That's fine.

00:25:32--> 00:25:38

A scholar was once traveling with a group within with his entourage of students, and the past by the marketplace.

00:25:39--> 00:25:54

And some people began abusing the scop, hurting all manner of insults at him. So the students around him, they became quite passionate and angry, and indignant,

00:25:55--> 00:25:58

and incense, and they began replying to the scholar

00:26:00--> 00:26:07

told him to remain silent. They couldn't help it, to compel them to remain silent.

00:26:09--> 00:26:13

And when he returned, he gathered the students and said, Come.

00:26:14--> 00:26:38

And he pulled this, this is an ancient story. He pulled out a chest, if you recall those large chests that people used to have to keep their belongings, he pulled out a large chest, and he open the lid. And he showed the students that entire chest was filled with letters. She started giving the letters to the students, they read these read these randomly.

00:26:39--> 00:26:52

And in the letters, he said, Look, in some of the letters, I received letters from people who tell me that I am the greatest man who walks the surface of the earth. I am shaking Islam.

00:26:53--> 00:27:04

I'm the greatest of all scholars, a scholar of scholars, the leader of leaders, the saints of saints, and the shape of Islam. That's what they say about me.

00:27:06--> 00:27:08

And then you find others

00:27:10--> 00:27:18

who write to me at the same time, and who heard all kinds of insults at me, who say of me that I am the scum of the earth.

00:27:19--> 00:27:26

But I am the worst of the people on earth. But I'm the most evil of the evil.

00:27:27--> 00:27:55

She said, There you are. This is why I was telling you don't say anything to them. What's the point? You get all kinds of people there are those who believe that I am the best of creation, at the moment living on earth. And there are those who feel that I am the worst of the scum of the earth. And he said this does not make me any more proud. And this does not make me feel any worse. For I know my relationship with them.

00:28:00--> 00:28:03

So the point I'm making is what is

00:28:05--> 00:28:06

who is Ahmed

00:28:09--> 00:28:12

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:28:14--> 00:28:15


00:28:16--> 00:28:19

that there are many who are covered in dust,

00:28:20--> 00:28:23

disheveled, unkempt, and appearance.

00:28:24--> 00:28:45

Rejected at the doors, if they knock on the door, someone opens the door and sees then that appearance, that unkempt appearance, that disheveled appearance, their hair, their the dust on the clouds, the very sight of them repels people, so they open the door, take one glance at them, and slam the door shut in their faces

00:28:46--> 00:28:48

won't even give them the opportunity to speak.

00:28:50--> 00:29:03

A lot of laughs a lot It was the same. There are so many of them. Now awesome and a lot better. If they were to swear In the name of Allah. Allah would not let the oath go unfulfilled.

00:29:06--> 00:29:14

A man walked past a sort of lust of the law, it will seldom was with this habit of the alarm. And he said what do you say of this man?

00:29:16--> 00:29:22

This is the art of sort of law, as everyone knows, a nobleman of his people.

00:29:25--> 00:29:27

And then they described him this just paraphrasing that Eve.

00:29:29--> 00:29:31

If he wants to speak people would listen and obey.

00:29:39--> 00:29:45

And they even said, if he was to ask for someone's hand in marriage, he would never be refused.

00:29:47--> 00:29:52

Then another person will pass the set to him. What do you say of him? Seattle sort of large

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

amount of lowly nature of lowly standard and sorry a man of lowly status.

00:30:01--> 00:30:08

If he wants to speak nobody wants to listen if he was to instruct nobody was, would obey. If he wants to ask for someone's hand in marriage,

00:30:09--> 00:30:15

he would be refused, no one would entertain them. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:30:16--> 00:30:21

the likes of one of him are better than an earth full of those

00:30:23--> 00:30:25

the likes of one of him is better

00:30:27--> 00:30:29

than a world full of the other one.

00:30:30--> 00:30:33

So what is honor what is what is respect?

00:30:36--> 00:30:37

I'm delighted Norway, you must at all.

00:30:39--> 00:30:44

amount of great standing and intelligence and charm and leadership amongst his people.

00:30:46--> 00:30:48

He said of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:30:50--> 00:30:52

He was the uncrowned king of array of Medina.

00:30:54--> 00:31:07

Before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came, and he said of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then the most bass and lowly one, and he said of himself as the most honored.

00:31:08--> 00:31:13

And indeed, in worldly terms, he was on it in wellnot.

00:31:15--> 00:31:28

He had all the qualities that we aspire to that we admire in others, a lot describes them in sort of an African without a chargeable cuts. In your poodle, this man told him

00:31:29--> 00:31:56

that if you see them, their bodies will please you and astound you, and when they speak, you will listen to them attentively. Why am delighted Norby Most of all, was tall, handsome, flaming red cheeks, very prepossessing and captivating. In his appearance. He had a sweet, smooth, enduring voice. He was very articulate, highly eloquent.

00:31:57--> 00:32:09

He commanded a certain presence. He had an aura and a dignity about him. He was the leader of his people. He was the uncrowned king of Medina.

00:32:11--> 00:32:12

He had leadership qualities.

00:32:15--> 00:32:17

He had everything that we aspired,

00:32:19--> 00:32:39

and yet lost and so in worldly terms, he was a man of honor and dignity. But he had the temerity and the arrogance to say of himself as that the most honored one meaning he will drive from Medina, the lowly and based on meaning or assuming la sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. A large response to that was

00:32:43--> 00:32:47

the Quran Karuna, Regina in Medina, regional as

00:32:48--> 00:33:11

they say that when we shall return to the city of Medina, the most honored one meaning Abdullah had no weakness at all will drive out the lowly and base one meaning Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam allows only reply to that is what he learned in there is that whether or solely he will milene will penalize the moon, to a law belongs

00:33:13--> 00:33:17

unto His Messenger, and to the macmini.

00:33:18--> 00:33:19

But the hypocrites do not know.

00:33:22--> 00:33:27

So what exactly is that what exactly is feign? honor? Respect?

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

What exactly is it?

00:33:34--> 00:33:36

people thinking something about you doesn't make you

00:33:41--> 00:34:18

being rich. So the point I'm making is our self worth, our self value, who we are, has got nothing to do with our possessions, our wealth, or even our social status. Even the respects that people give to us, or lack thereof, our fame are being known or not known. none of this matters. Ultimately, None of this makes us who we are. None of us. None of this gives us our true worth and value. This is why, regardless of whether

00:34:19--> 00:34:23

a law enriches us or makes us impoverished,

00:34:25--> 00:34:29

that does not mean anything about our worth and value in the sight of a law.

00:34:33--> 00:34:37

Last panel data says here in these two verses are sort of infection.

00:34:38--> 00:34:41

As for man when his Lord tests

00:34:42--> 00:34:43


00:34:44--> 00:34:54

honors him and favors him with his blessings and bounties, and he says My Lord has offered me so we think that Allah loves us.

00:34:55--> 00:34:57

Only when he gives us wealth,

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

material possessions

00:35:02--> 00:35:03


00:35:05--> 00:35:18

asked for a man when he a lot when his law tests and, and restricts His provision restricts his sustenance. So he says man has a lot my lord has disgraced me. We think

00:35:20--> 00:35:24

poverty is a disgrace from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:35:25--> 00:35:43

You see, we are confusing our relationship with Allah with our relationship with our fellow human beings. We are confusing people's treatment of us. And people's perception of us with a last treatment of isn't that last perception of us, and they are completely different.

00:35:45--> 00:35:47

True people in the world

00:35:48--> 00:35:53

will regard you if you have money for money talks,

00:35:55--> 00:35:56

if you have social status,

00:36:02--> 00:36:12

if you have a certain social status, if you are famous, and powerful and affluent and influential, people will regard you and if you are none of these things, maybe they won't regard.

00:36:15--> 00:36:21

But what, what does people's regard mean at the end of the day doesn't mean anything.

00:36:23--> 00:36:28

It does not mean anything. It's forever fluctuating is forever changing.

00:36:29--> 00:36:35

If If someone thinks but you are an idiot, it does not make you an idiot.

00:36:37--> 00:36:39

And there is no need for you to feel negative about.

00:36:42--> 00:36:48

Regardless of whether one person thinks there are 100 people think that it will only get to you.

00:36:49--> 00:36:53

For as long as as much as you allow it to get.

00:36:56--> 00:36:59

Then you're doing it to yourself. They aren't doing it to you.

00:37:01--> 00:37:03

So if they say you're an idiot,

00:37:05--> 00:37:06

if you laugh it off.

00:37:08--> 00:37:14

And forget about water off a duck's back and carry on all effects you

00:37:15--> 00:37:35

they say you're in idiots. 10 people say you're an idiot. And then you sit down and start navel gazing and wallowing in self pity and despair and saying, am I an idiot? They think I'm an idiot. So you're only reinforcing the message. Now, they're not hurting you, you are hurting yourself

00:37:37--> 00:37:39

and you are letting it get to you.

00:37:42--> 00:37:45

So regardless of what a person thinks,

00:37:50--> 00:38:00

that people think what they want, as long as you know that you are not doing anything wrong. As long as your relationship with Allah is good, but it's good.

00:38:02--> 00:38:04

As a poet says Felipe

00:38:05--> 00:38:10

when Hayato Maria de la Takata will anomaly La

00:38:11--> 00:38:15

la la the baby will be in a room will be nearby in

00:38:17--> 00:38:17

it as

00:38:19--> 00:38:22

a human or could lay the folk rabito

00:38:23--> 00:38:26

the Ponce's for later

00:38:27--> 00:38:35

so would the addressing Allah wood that you are sweet? What hyouta Murray rotten and life is better?

00:38:39--> 00:38:41

For a tic tac toe Marina

00:38:43--> 00:38:55

would that you are sweetened knife is bitter, will eat the Qatada And would that you are happy and pleased will anomic evolve and the whole of mankind is angry.

00:39:00--> 00:39:02

will eat the livi beanie will be in

00:39:03--> 00:39:09

a mood that the relationship between you and me is alive and vibrant

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

and inhabited.

00:39:12--> 00:39:21

obeying you obeying the law, the mean horrible and move that between me and the whole of creation that is desolate us

00:39:25--> 00:39:27

is a miracle.

00:39:29--> 00:39:34

If all law if your love is true, then all else is like

00:39:35--> 00:39:42

well could you let the folk turabi travel and all that is on the dust of the earth is dust itself.

00:39:44--> 00:39:51

That's it, people's respect, their love, their hates, their envy, their anger,

00:39:54--> 00:39:55

their armor,

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

their friendship, all of it is just appalling.

00:40:00--> 00:40:00


00:40:01--> 00:40:04

They aren't just we are just

00:40:06--> 00:40:10

as long as there is the relationship with the last panel.

00:40:12--> 00:40:21

So we should never confuse our relationship with Allah as being similar to our relationship with our fellow human beings. We shouldn't treat a law in the same way.

00:40:22--> 00:40:40

It's a completely different understanding. It's completely different relationship. Allah subhanho wa Taala does not see a person's worth in their wealth or in their property, and their possessions, and a lot does not give wealth according to his liking of that person.

00:40:42--> 00:40:44

When a law restricts someone's

00:40:46--> 00:40:50

systems, it's not because the law has disgraced them as diverse as

00:40:52--> 00:41:00

that man thinks accordingly. And when Allah blesses someone with wealth, it does not mean that Allah loves them, or has honored them.

00:41:02--> 00:41:07

If that was the case, wouldn't the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam be the wealthiest of all?

00:41:08--> 00:41:12

What do you have suffered famine, hunger, thirst?

00:41:13--> 00:41:20

What do you have lived and survived for days on end on dates and water and the occasional milk

00:41:21--> 00:41:28

with the earth in his home, have not been lit for up to two months because there was no solid food to cook.

00:41:29--> 00:41:30

And that was in Medina.

00:41:33--> 00:41:40

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have lived in a simple hut, lava that was his life.

00:41:41--> 00:41:56

So a person's worth and value in the sight of Allah has been honored or disgraced has got nothing to do with wealth and material possessions. This is memes, erroneous and corrupt understanding of his relationship with a law.

00:41:58--> 00:42:03

Rather, a person's relationship with the light is founded on many different things,

00:42:04--> 00:42:15

then lost throughout the war. And there are many verses that speak about this, as I said in Santa Holika Hello. When man has been man has been created helluva meaning in temperates.

00:42:17--> 00:42:24

If he gets what he wants, he thinks that Allah loves him. If he doesn't get what he wants, he thinks Allah hates him.

00:42:25--> 00:42:27

And we do that without report.

00:42:29--> 00:42:31

There's real psychology behind us.

00:42:34--> 00:42:37

It's, we are projecting

00:42:39--> 00:42:41

our fears,

00:42:42--> 00:42:46

and our mind and our thoughts on someone else.

00:42:48--> 00:42:49

We imagine

00:42:54--> 00:43:01

if somebody doesn't contact you, for instance, you're expecting them to contact you, a family member, let's say your mother,

00:43:03--> 00:43:08

your mother contact you. So you waiting to hear from your mother. She doesn't contact you.

00:43:12--> 00:43:20

Sometimes you may fear. Well, actually, maybe not so much a mother but someone else. I'll tell you why. Because we take our mothers and our fathers for granted.

00:43:22--> 00:43:26

But someone else, we want their love. We want their attention.

00:43:28--> 00:43:31

And we hoping and expecting them to contact us.

00:43:32--> 00:43:36

Maybe they genuinely do care for us. Or for some reason. They just couldn't contact us.

00:43:37--> 00:43:54

We don't hear from them for a day or two. And we expect them to hear from them. We start worrying and thinking all kinds of things same fluctuation. We sink to depths of despair and despondency. And we begin imagining things.

00:43:55--> 00:43:56

Wow, why

00:43:57--> 00:44:02

are they having doubts about me? Do they dislike me?

00:44:04--> 00:44:10

We projecting our fears and our imagination on someone else.

00:44:12--> 00:44:13

And we do that with the last panel.

00:44:15--> 00:44:40

Quite simply wealth, material possessions. I've got nothing to do with a large relationship with us. And we are intemperate and in moderates and impulsive in our nature. In the links down below a man has been created Hello intemperate is I'm so shadow Jesu when misfortune befalls him, he is despondent.

00:44:43--> 00:44:52

And he panics with a menorah. And when good fortune meets in his withholding meaning he becomes stingy. It feels all happy and elated.

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

Law says know someone inside

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

I'm into failure. We're in massage shovel for a

00:45:04--> 00:45:05

while in the UK now home in

00:45:07--> 00:45:09

LA Mr. leopoldina

00:45:10--> 00:45:14

masataka him wanting to be in the ring the

00:45:17--> 00:45:19

man does not ever tire

00:45:21--> 00:45:23

of praying for good

00:45:26--> 00:45:34

witnesses who shop, but if misfortune befalls him for your awesome, then he is despairing despond.

00:45:36--> 00:45:37


00:45:38--> 00:45:43

so he's down in the dumps. Then Allah says well in

00:45:45--> 00:45:53

the law, then if we give him some mercy to taste from ourselves, after misfortune they had before the fallen him.

00:45:55--> 00:46:01

Suddenly, he says, Have early, this is for me, meaning I deserve this.

00:46:03--> 00:46:18

I deserve this. And it makes him so he rises from the depths, and from the from the dumps, to feeling on top of the world to such an extent that he says, Well, most of them will satisfy him. But I think that is not our of judgment.

00:46:20--> 00:46:28

And even if there is one that you're rejected, I'll be fine returned to my Lord, in the leader in the hall and Krishna, I shall have good fortune thereby.

00:46:30--> 00:46:52

So this is how we fluctuate from the lowest of depths to the heights of Americans. And that's what Allah mentions in these two verses. There's so much more to say about these two verses about spice with that. I'll translate them again astral man, when his law tests and an honors him and blesses him. When he says, My Lord has honored me,

00:46:53--> 00:47:08

and when his law tests and asked for when his Lord tests and restricts his risk His provision for him when he says My Lord has disgraced me lost power who then says conda Bella.

00:47:10--> 00:47:29

Now, you do not honor the orphan? What are the how Dona Ana miskeen and naughty, you encourage one another, to feed the poor. What that Karuna Accra llama and devour inheritance,

00:47:30--> 00:47:34

a great devouring, passionate devouring

00:47:35--> 00:48:29

moon, American Benjamin, and you love wealth excessively. Now, what have these few verses got to do with the previous two verses I said earlier, it's a whole. Ultimately, this is all about the level of wealth. So the level of wealth is mentioned right at the end. But it's the level of wealth which causes all of these behaviors. So that level of wealth causes you not to be stingy. To be tight fisted, to be miserly, to be withholding, to not spend and to not share. The love of wealth prevents you from feeding the poor. The love of wealth causes you to devour and lawfully inherit inheritance. The love of wealth causes you to dishonor the orphan. The love of wealth causes you to behave in

00:48:29--> 00:48:36

this manner. That when Allah gives you wealth, you are happy with Allah when Allah doesn't give you wealth You're

00:48:38--> 00:48:41

so it's all to do with the love of wealth.

00:48:42--> 00:48:48

So last is gulla below to claim only a team now you do not honor the off

00:48:50--> 00:48:51

as I mentioned before,

00:48:52--> 00:48:54

on Friday in the mahadi commentary

00:48:55--> 00:48:57

on other occasions,

00:48:59--> 00:49:00

sort of federal is a makansutra.

00:49:02--> 00:49:18

And the Mk insulins primarily addressed the people of Makkah Qureshi, and most importantly, the elites of the Quraysh. The rich merchants, the merchant class, the rich upper class of maca,

00:49:20--> 00:49:21


00:49:22--> 00:49:23

the others,

00:49:25--> 00:49:28

the Arabs in general had a great tradition of hospitality.

00:49:29--> 00:49:32

And they would share they would give they would entertain,

00:49:34--> 00:49:35

but not the rich.

00:49:36--> 00:49:43

Because the richer person becomes by the testimony of the court, the stingier person becomes

00:49:44--> 00:49:49

unless of course they can tackle that through goodwill and good deeds.

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

So the Moroccans despite being the elite amongst them, despite being powerful, affluent and influential

00:50:00--> 00:50:03

And wealthy enough, they refuse to spend

00:50:04--> 00:50:10

rather than spending only orphans. They robbed the orphans of their wealth.

00:50:11--> 00:50:23

And the messages in general, although originally the address was to the Quraysh poor and its message and its verses are universal for all times, and we should think of ourselves as being addressed here.

00:50:24--> 00:50:28

So cannibal lotto criminally 89, you do not honor the orphan.

00:50:30--> 00:50:42

Our love of wealth prevents us from sharing from spending and charity. And one of the greatest groups most deserving of our charity and our consideration

00:50:44--> 00:50:45

is a group of wolf

00:50:47--> 00:50:51

throughout the quarter, and a lot has mentioned orphans time and time again.

00:50:53--> 00:50:59

Sort of the manner in which we covered or either the UK will be deemed for that equality, you know,

00:51:00--> 00:51:02

what I mean?

00:51:04--> 00:51:10

Have you not seen one who rejects the religion or rejects the record? Have you not seen one who rejects the record?

00:51:12--> 00:51:15

This is the one who drives away the orphan

00:51:16--> 00:51:19

and who does not encourage others to feed the poor?

00:51:22--> 00:51:31

And sort of Allah reminds the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about being an orphan himself and Amina jitka demon for our well Jessica doll and

00:51:33--> 00:51:33


00:51:34--> 00:51:43

did not find you an orphan and then give you shelter. Then in response to that law tells him later What should you do or messenger of Allah, familia team have

00:51:45--> 00:51:48

asked for the orphan, did not rebuke him do not even rebuke

00:51:50--> 00:51:51


00:51:52--> 00:51:56

and ask for the beggar as for the one who asks,

00:51:57--> 00:52:03

well as for the orphan do not suppress it. And as for the one who asks Do not rebuke

00:52:06--> 00:52:31

for an alarm spoken about the rights of the orphans, and in sort of the insana last panel horadada praises those who will receive special reward on the Day of Judgment. They will drink from the streams and the fountains of genma and have them last panel without assays. What would they do on earth? They would feed people

00:52:35--> 00:52:36

with a moon atomic

00:52:37--> 00:52:43

Myskina we even want to see in the moment. Hilah Lon reedman Contessa one.

00:52:45--> 00:52:49

Law says they would feed they would feed food,

00:52:52--> 00:53:15

for the love of Allah, to Myskina to the poor, we are Thema and so the orphan and what's the Euro to the cat? And they would say and they would feel that we only feed you for the sake of Allah. We do for the countenance of Allah, we do not seek any gratitude or reward from

00:53:17--> 00:53:50

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself was an orphan, the orphans of great rights, people since the orphans are weak, vulnerable and helpless, sometimes family members themselves, in the name of looking after the orphans, they devour the wealth of the orphans, and that Allah has original says in the livigno Karuna Amalia Tana lumen in Maya una una casa slowness or era, those who consume the wealth of the orphans and lawfully they are only consuming the fire in their stomachs

00:53:51--> 00:53:53

and they shall attend to the fire

00:53:54--> 00:54:18

prophets of Allah it was Sallam was a theme and an orphan himself. He grew up as an orphan, and he felt it. And regarding the orphan the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the heaviest leads by man Buhari, and Mr. Muslim and many others from a number of different harbottle the Allah Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said an hour Garfinkel Yeti makaha

00:54:20--> 00:54:31

I am the custodian and carer of the orphan will be like this in paradise. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam joined his two noble fingers

00:54:33--> 00:54:39

and in another Have you played by my Muslim? last a little while equal seldom says whoever

00:54:41--> 00:54:42

caters for an orphan

00:54:45--> 00:54:56

by feeding him and looking after him, feeding him get him to eat and drink and looking after him until the orphan becomes self capable and self standing.

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

And what happens to him well

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

Whichever region Jenna becomes Watch out for him obligatory for

00:55:08--> 00:55:51

and one. Although the aroma of the youth is weak but Hadeeth is a mammal hard to learn he has related it not in his Hebrew in his mouth but laughs in the law hiding who seldom says that the best of homes is amongst the Muslims is a home in which an orphan is being honored. And the worst of homes amongst the Muslim homes of the Muslims is a home in which the orphan is not being treated well for orphans of great heights and even in inverses throughout the program, orphans have a right to our wealth. Less than a bit in Salt Lake City beratan tolu table and mosquito in Madrid what can be ramen am Annabella will young will have

00:55:53--> 00:56:10

been what are the man would be the will crowbar? Well, yeah. Tama Sakina. What needs to be alone mentions in this verse of sort of Baccarat is a very long verse. Virtue righteousness is not that you face the east or the west I in prayer for more ritual prayer.

00:56:12--> 00:56:17

Rather piety righteousness, is of that person who believes in Allah.

00:56:19--> 00:56:40

And in the final day and in the angels, and in the book and in the prophets, and after correct believe, what are the in terms of deeds? These are the deeds which make a person virtuous and righteous in the sight of Allah, not formal ritual prayer. Rather, what are the matter the one who gives wealth

00:56:42--> 00:57:09

in the name of Allah for the love of a lot, that will Autobots one's relatives will yet and to the earth. So immediately after one's own relatives, the first most deserving and rightful recipients of one's donations and charity are the orphans. So let's try to address these can labella takashimaya teen name you do not honor the orphan.

00:57:10--> 00:57:16

And children are vulnerable. They don't have their parents that don't have their carers and custodians.

00:57:18--> 00:57:24

If only we would think about them as we think of our own children, imagine if our child was in that position.

00:57:27--> 00:57:38

So colorable law to criminality now you to not honor the orphan? What are the how Dona Ana de Anima ski naughty encourage one another to feed the poor.

00:57:41--> 00:57:42

It's true.

00:57:46--> 00:57:50

We feed ourselves, we feed others.

00:57:53--> 00:57:56

As I mentioned in the Friday, that's often what happens.

00:57:58--> 00:58:18

So much food gets wasted. We have wedding invitations, wedding functions, banquets, feasts, where people extend invitations insincerely people accept invitations insincerely and people feed in order to save face and people eat in order to save face.

00:58:20--> 00:58:30

And we witness that in our culture. Whenever we have a wedding invitation, when we sit down to invite for people, how many should we invite? Who should we invite?

00:58:32--> 00:58:42

And our greatest consideration is again that same exact thing. What will they say? What will people say about us? This one upmanship.

00:58:43--> 00:58:45

That family spent

00:58:46--> 00:58:50

20,000 on the wedding, we must spend 30

00:58:51--> 00:58:56

and the numbers continue to come. And now we hear of

00:58:57--> 00:59:08

people mortgaging their homes in order to throw a bash at their child's wedding, merely to look good

00:59:10--> 00:59:12

in the Muslim community Muslim culture

00:59:14--> 00:59:26

to spend up to 50,000 pounds, giving gifts holding a huge banquet might even one day's feasting and festivity. Seven Days feasting and festivity continuously

00:59:29--> 00:59:36

and to save face to show face to save face to impress, to create an impression.

00:59:38--> 00:59:45

So invitations are extended insincerely say face people accept invitations and come say face

00:59:46--> 00:59:59

all about Islam. Should we invite that family? Oh, we have to not because anyone wants to be if we don't, we'll never get to hear the end of it. There will be trouble. What when people say we can't just have 100

01:00:00--> 01:00:02

Guests, what will people say?

01:00:03--> 01:00:05

It's all about what people say.

01:00:10--> 01:00:15

And all of that law says in the Quran, people want different things.

01:00:16--> 01:00:20

One person can't decide what they want for themselves.

01:00:21--> 01:00:24

That design is changing from morning to evening.

01:00:27--> 01:00:27

So how

01:00:28--> 01:00:32

do we think we can fulfill other people's desires of ourselves

01:00:34--> 01:00:38

of that last panel who says, what do we have?

01:00:39--> 01:00:40

The facility is similar.

01:00:43--> 01:00:46

But if the truth was to follow their designs,

01:00:48--> 01:00:52

the heavens and the earth and all that, while they're in will perish.

01:00:56--> 01:01:00

If I said that, somehow the will of the heavens and the earth would perish

01:01:01--> 01:01:12

in another verse, what in took their maximum field of view they look to be the law, if you follow most of whom are on the earth, they will lead you astray from the path?

01:01:14--> 01:01:18

what people think, what will they say? What will they think?

01:01:20--> 01:01:42

So we extend our wedding invitations insincerely and when the wedding invitation arrives, people we know we have this discussion. Should I go Should I not go? Should we go? Should we go? No, we have to go We must go. Why? To say face if we don't go there will be trouble. We'll never hear the end of it. If we don't go what when people say.

01:01:44--> 01:01:55

So we go there not to eat but say face we are invited them not to be fed but to save face. But the ones who deserve to be fed the need in the poor the orphans

01:01:57--> 01:01:58

lock but

01:01:59--> 01:02:01

we will drive up in our higher cars

01:02:03--> 01:02:04

to the wedding hall.

01:02:05--> 01:02:10

And there possibly on the streets will be those looking for film.

01:02:12--> 01:02:16

And now even here in this country. That is not unheard of.

01:02:17--> 01:02:19

But it's not unheard of.

01:02:20--> 01:02:22

Only today, I read in the

01:02:23--> 01:02:28

newspaper official of Canterbury, made a comment that was more shocked

01:02:30--> 01:02:31

about the

01:02:32--> 01:02:34

about Pete about the level of poverty

01:02:40--> 01:02:44

and the spectacle of people being fed from food banks here in the UK.

01:02:46--> 01:02:51

He was more shocked by this than he was shocked by the state to some of the refugee camps.

01:02:53--> 01:03:03

And here now in this country to more than half a million people are regularly collecting food from food banks.

01:03:06--> 01:03:16

This is why I say we may drive up in our high of cars and vehicles to the wedding hall was around as there are people who are in much greater need

01:03:18--> 01:03:19

to feed the poor,

01:03:21--> 01:03:26

to give our wealth to share from our wealth to give our food

01:03:28--> 01:03:30

we waste more food than we ever given charity.

01:03:34--> 01:03:35

And this is a tradition

01:03:37--> 01:03:40

which needs to be of help.

01:03:43--> 01:03:51

Not just dismissively, an absent mindedly dropping a few coins or a few notes or writing a check for people to be fed somewhere else.

01:03:52--> 01:03:56

But to feed then we're here in the heads of hedger

01:03:58--> 01:04:14

on Friday, how the prophets of Allah Haile he was one of them when he milk the animal he gave to Marlboro Viola and then he gave over Casa de oro de la hora and then he gave to me and even to Abdullah ignored as a non Muslim

01:04:16--> 01:04:19

and only then at the end of the drink from the milk himself

01:04:21--> 01:04:25

to feed people with their hat with your one's own hands is an act of great charity and

01:04:27--> 01:04:39

so last thing is gonna love and love to the Mona Lisa de matar Dona Ana, the scheme name you do not feed the you do not honor the orphan and nor do you encourage one another to feed the poor.

01:04:41--> 01:04:43

Without Coronavirus

01:04:44--> 01:04:49

and you devour inheritance, the passionate devouring.

01:04:50--> 01:04:52

It was true then it's true now.

01:04:56--> 01:04:59

Members of the family have their rightful share in inheritance in this

01:05:01--> 01:05:07

And yet, the common customers that the the eldest are the most powerful

01:05:08--> 01:05:18

are the one sitting on the land on the property in the property, unlawfully stakes a claim on that property

01:05:19--> 01:05:24

and sometimes just usurps it just takes it confiscate steals.

01:05:26--> 01:05:31

This is that this is depriving another of their rightful share of the inheritance.

01:05:34--> 01:05:35

It was true, then it's true.

01:05:38--> 01:05:39

And this is the nature of wealth.

01:05:41--> 01:05:54

We break our backs. We stress our mounds, we burden our hearts, we break our hearts, we break other people's hearts, all in the process of accumulating wealth.

01:05:56--> 01:06:04

Only for our own loved ones, to squabble over that wealth when we die, to create divisions.

01:06:06--> 01:06:12

That wealth becomes a Is it a bird? Is it a blessing or a bird? Is that a boon or a curse?

01:06:14--> 01:06:21

All our lives we slave ourselves to earn so much wealth. And we deposit that wealth and dust,

01:06:23--> 01:06:30

bricks, mortar buildings, land, it's Earth is dust and soil at the end of the day.

01:06:32--> 01:06:33

When we depart,

01:06:35--> 01:06:36

what happens?

01:06:38--> 01:06:41

Our own family members squabble over that wealth

01:06:42--> 01:06:45

unlawfully, some of them devour it's

01:06:47--> 01:06:55

another meaning of devouring is that even if they receive it lawfully or unlawfully? How do some people spend their inheritance

01:07:01--> 01:07:02

they blow them and

01:07:05--> 01:07:20

so their parents have worked all their lives to create this wealth, and to leave it for the well being and welfare of their children. And whether they receive it lawfully unlawfully some of them squander it.

01:07:23--> 01:07:36

And you devour wealth of passionate devouring, and then a lot intersection with the words with the moon and matter Benjamin, a new love, wealth excessively. And excessive love.

01:07:37--> 01:07:58

This is the key to this whole section. It's this which leads to all the previous behaviors is this which leads the person to view a lot in that manner. They feel loved gives them possessions, material possessions, they feel that Allah has honored them. And if a lot deprives them of material possessions, they feel that allows disgrace them.

01:08:00--> 01:08:02

It's a level of wealth, and indeed we do love wealth.

01:08:06--> 01:08:20

Islam does not condemn the creation of wealth, the generation of wealth. It doesn't. Islam does not condemn hard work, earning with one's hands Far from it, Islam encourages strongly.

01:08:21--> 01:08:24

But it's a very balanced philosophy of wealth. And this

01:08:25--> 01:08:31

last panel with Allah tells us in the Quran and prophets of the lion equals some of them has told us

01:08:33--> 01:08:45

if you were to accept a symbol and crude philosophy of wealth, it's a three parts in this one, work hard to earn wealth, generate wealth.

01:08:46--> 01:08:47

Stand on your feet.

01:08:49--> 01:08:52

Do not be reliant or dependent on anyone else.

01:08:54--> 01:08:55

And with your own hands,

01:08:56--> 01:09:01

create wealth for yourself, for your families, for society, for community.

01:09:04--> 01:09:06

Once you have created that wealth,

01:09:08--> 01:09:08

number two,

01:09:12--> 01:09:16

let that wealth be in your share that wealth,

01:09:17--> 01:09:18

give to others.

01:09:20--> 01:09:22

Everyone has arrived and sharing that wealth

01:09:24--> 01:09:25

and that wealth.

01:09:27--> 01:09:28

And number three,

01:09:31--> 01:09:34

let the wealth be in your hands but never in your heart.

01:09:39--> 01:09:41

Let the wealth help you prepare for your hereafter.

01:09:44--> 01:09:48

That's the most important thing. Let not the wealth distraction

01:09:50--> 01:09:53

from Allah and His remembrance.

01:09:56--> 01:09:59

So when Allah condemned the love of wealth, it's not

01:10:01--> 01:10:17

condemnation of earning or working hard, or generating and creating wealth now, it's a condemnation of the love of wealth in the heart, which is something different, because one is never satisfied.

01:10:20--> 01:10:22

And that's what Allah condemns.

01:10:23--> 01:10:26

It's the mentality, it's the love of wealth.

01:10:28--> 01:10:37

And the condemnation of the Quran and the Hadith of the level of wealth is to do mainly with the heart. Because that's detached,

01:10:38--> 01:10:44

and totally separate from wealth being one's hands or not. Because the level of wealth is always there.

01:10:45--> 01:10:57

We could be penniless, and we love wealth, we could be billionaires and still love wealth, it doesn't make a difference. Then there are those seven of the last panel who would rather

01:10:58--> 01:11:03

whose hearts last purified and cleansed of the love of wealth.

01:11:05--> 01:11:06

For them,

01:11:08--> 01:11:13

they don't love wealth, regardless of whether it's in their possession or not in their possession.

01:11:17--> 01:11:30

So it's the attachment of our hearts to wealth and to the dunya, which is to be condemned, and we do love wealth. This has to do with shock and greed, with a desire for material possessions. For us, it's never enough.

01:11:32--> 01:11:34

And part of it has to do with our fear of poverty.

01:11:36--> 01:11:41

Last season sort of the bacara a shape on the common factor where Muhammad

01:11:42--> 01:11:42


01:11:44--> 01:11:51

Allah, Allah who are sick marilene the devil shavon threatens you with poverty

01:11:52--> 01:11:58

and instructs you to leanness and to sin, an immorality

01:12:00--> 01:12:05

and a lot of promises you forgiveness and bouncing.

01:12:06--> 01:12:19

And the law is full of bouncy, full of non allies all around all knowing what that verse clearly shows is that the fear of poverty from shape arm leads us to committing sin.

01:12:22--> 01:12:25

We never think it's enough. We're always planning ahead.

01:12:29--> 01:12:30


01:12:31--> 01:12:33

no matter how much we have in our hands,

01:12:34--> 01:12:51

we never think it's enough. We're always want something like little children want the next toy. Want the next material possession once then what the next thrill moment of thrill. Once that moment passes, we get bored of it.

01:12:52--> 01:12:54

gadgets toys,

01:12:55--> 01:12:57

it doesn't make a difference.

01:12:59--> 01:13:02

And that was mentioning on Friday about the sales

01:13:03--> 01:13:11

just in the past two weeks. Actually, just last week, we had sales and newspapers were

01:13:13--> 01:13:15

replete with stories

01:13:16--> 01:13:16


01:13:18--> 01:13:24

stampedes fighting Jocelyn, people being wounded, injured, arrested.

01:13:25--> 01:13:29

Absolute mayhem scuffles

01:13:31--> 01:13:37

and scrims inside stores at midnight or one o'clock in the morning, two o'clock in the morning

01:13:39--> 01:13:42

with a total abandonment of dignity

01:13:43--> 01:14:25

and consideration, but a very demeaning undignified spectacle and all for what. So Pamela in some parts of the world in refugee camps, where people have not eaten for days, people line up on cue in an orderly fashion in order to receive food rations and packages. They, despite their hunger and famine, behave in a more dignified manner than satiated, wealthy, relatively wealthy individuals such as stampeding and falling over one under the supermarket's at midnight

01:14:26--> 01:14:29

in order to fall out not to grab a bottle of water

01:14:31--> 01:14:33

because our thirst is killing us,

01:14:34--> 01:14:40

nor to grab a morsel of food of which we have been deprived for days on them know

01:14:41--> 01:14:44

for blu ray players, games, consoles,

01:14:46--> 01:14:48

digital TVs,

01:14:51--> 01:14:59

Dyson cleans vacuums, and as one person said, I ended up getting a Dyson I ended up getting I don't know why

01:15:00--> 01:15:00

Got it.

01:15:02--> 01:15:04

So we don't even know why we get.

01:15:07--> 01:15:18

What's the reasoning? What's the motive? What's the emotion behind such behavior? Sure, greed will never satisfy. That's what law says. When when you are shocked and upset

01:15:19--> 01:15:25

muffler on whoever is protected from the greed and avarice of his soul. These are the ones who are successful.

01:15:27--> 01:15:37

Because greed is in the eyes, it's in the heart. And that's what it means to be born a matter of Benjamin. You love wealth excessively. We can never get enough of it.

01:15:39--> 01:15:41

It's never ending.

01:15:42--> 01:15:46

In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us and very beautiful Eddie.

01:15:49--> 01:16:01

So many is harbottle the law related this hadith leidner burstable hora hora de la I'm David Diller hold the alarm. I'm am delighted Mrs. Vehicle the alarm and so many others.

01:16:03--> 01:16:06

Sula sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says and this

01:16:08--> 01:16:10

relates by Manmohan Singh is

01:16:11--> 01:16:16

that the light of the alarm I was delivering hookah in muckety muck aroma in which he said

01:16:19--> 01:16:22

Ghana Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he Yoku

01:16:24--> 01:16:32

lo and Nibbana Adam or idea where the men that have been in a funny way, the Athenian

01:16:34--> 01:16:38

What are your super jofa Adam in the Torah boo boo la

01:16:42--> 01:16:45

he says I'm delighted reservado the Allahu Allah says

01:16:47--> 01:16:52

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say never said this once he would say

01:16:55--> 01:16:57

that if man wants to be given

01:16:58--> 01:17:05

a valley filled with God malum in the hub, one Valley filled with gold, pure gold,

01:17:06--> 01:17:08

he would desire a second.

01:17:09--> 01:17:13

And if he was given a second value of gold, he would desire a third.

01:17:15--> 01:17:24

And nothing can fill the vacuum or the cavity in man except the dust of the earth, ie when He is buried,

01:17:25--> 01:17:29

and Allah relents to those whom he wishes to turn to in mass.

01:17:31--> 01:17:41

And the best way of understanding this heavy Okay, we may not think much of it, a valley full of gold, a second Valley a third valleys Pamela. Imagine.

01:17:43--> 01:17:44

Think of it in this way.

01:17:46--> 01:17:48

In the entire history of mankind.

01:17:50--> 01:17:56

The total amount of gold ever mined and excavated from the earth

01:18:01--> 01:18:08

will only fill approximately four Olympic swimming pools, or two football fields.

01:18:11--> 01:18:18

So an Olympic swimming pool, two meters in depth, 50 meters in length, 25 meters in width.

01:18:20--> 01:18:33

less than four Olympics, fewer than four Olympic swimming pools. The total amount of gold ever mined and excavated by the whole human race

01:18:35--> 01:18:37

in the entire history of mankind,

01:18:38--> 01:18:39


01:18:40--> 01:18:43

does not fill more than

01:18:45--> 01:19:09

four Olympic swimming pools. That's 50 meters in length, 25 meters in width, only two meters in height. And the equivalent of a football field is just two football fields, two football pitches. And that's not even of great depth to football pitchers pitchers is how much gold has been extracted and mined, but all humanity in its entire history.

01:19:11--> 01:19:13

And look at what goes on because of gold.

01:19:17--> 01:19:24

Now, two football pitches or four Olympic swimming pools. We're not even talking about that.

01:19:26--> 01:19:34

We're talking about one whole valley between two mountains filled with gold.

01:19:36--> 01:19:37

They say

01:19:38--> 01:19:39


01:19:43--> 01:19:49

gold is becoming scarce even in the ground. So one Valley full of gold. That's actually

01:19:50--> 01:19:55

many, many more times the goal that's actually available in earth on Earth.

01:19:58--> 01:19:59

If we had all of that

01:20:00--> 01:20:00


01:20:01--> 01:20:03

man would still want a second.

01:20:05--> 01:20:15

And if he was given the second, he would still want a third and infinitely, it goes on. Nothing can satisfy that desire and love and lust for wealth and

01:20:17--> 01:20:28

except the dust of the earth, that's the only thing that will satisfy him that will fill that cavity. It's like we have a Jove cavity in us. And we want to fill it, it's empty.

01:20:32--> 01:20:36

But that emptiness in the heart cannot be filled even with values of God.

01:20:38--> 01:20:43

The only thing that can fill that emptiness is the dust of the earth,

01:20:44--> 01:20:44


01:20:46--> 01:20:47

the love of Allah.

01:20:50--> 01:20:51

And I mentioned in

01:20:52--> 01:20:59

a number of students before in sort of the marathon and sort of a thought and sort of romanza about the love of wealth,

01:21:00--> 01:21:27

and I've just mentioned to the youth and we'll end with that refer to those salts for a description of the level of wealth. But in my Muslim I had to learn how they relate to the from Abdullah mushrif hero, the Allaha and who says that I came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he was reciting sort of sort of MacArthur and Hakuna Matata. So when he finished, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

01:21:29--> 01:21:37

You're part of northern Mali, you must Marley. man says, the son of other men says my wife my wrath

01:21:39--> 01:21:50

on them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, we're gonna add the min Malik in lama occulta. For me, all of this the blade of the subducting

01:21:52--> 01:21:54

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh, man,

01:21:56--> 01:22:00

do you have anything of your wealth, except what you have eaten,

01:22:01--> 01:22:04

and therefore, cause to perish.

01:22:05--> 01:22:22

All you have worn and worn out, or you have spent in charity, and center ahead for yourself, meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, All of man's possessions, all of his wealth, can be divided into three parts, three things,

01:22:23--> 01:22:28

what he eats, and finishes, he can call that his own.

01:22:31--> 01:23:17

What he wears, and not just wears ones, what he wears and wears out, that belongs to them. So food which he has consumed, and that's nourished him and strengthen him, or clothes that he has worn and worn out. Therefore, they are not useless for anybody else. He can call them his possessions. And the third thing which still belongs to him, is if he spent in charity, then he has secured that reward for himself in the US. And he sent it ahead, that belongs to him. Only that much, nothing else of his wealth belongs. And this is explained in another video later by Muslim in history, from Abu huraira de la one who says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, You said your

01:23:17--> 01:23:21

poodle abdomen Imani. The servants of Allah sees my wealth, my wealth.

01:23:22--> 01:23:24

Well, my other homie man he left

01:23:26--> 01:23:29

and he does not have of his wealth except three things.

01:23:31--> 01:23:31


01:23:34--> 01:23:34


01:23:36--> 01:23:51

Oh, Donna Masonic for the Atari colinas. Well, he he has of his wealth, only three things what he eats and causes to perish and finishes it, what he dress, what he wears and wears out, or

01:23:54--> 01:24:05

what he gives, and holds and treasures as a reward for himself in the art. And anything besides these three, then he is about to depart and leave all of it for the P.

01:24:06--> 01:24:28

And that's true. What we claim to be animals out of our millions, even if we have them. Only what we eat and what we wear and wear out belongs to us or what we give in charity, everything else. We're just holding it on. We're just holding on to it for the sake of others. We lose our sleep.

01:24:29--> 01:24:32

We lose our sleep, but we'll never use it.

01:24:33--> 01:24:36

We lose our peace of mind. We will never use it.

01:24:39--> 01:24:53

That's our level of wealth. And that level of wealth creates greed this week. It's the wealthier we get. The older we get, the greater the intensity of our level of wealth. And that's a fact mentioning that the

01:24:55--> 01:24:59

greed never ends and we need to come

01:25:00--> 01:25:05

Back then greed and avarice in households, and there's a very unique story

01:25:07--> 01:25:24

about poverty today relates This is the scene with this chain that someone was doing the life around the gamma. And he heard someone making only one bar whilst performing the walk around the gap. It's time for the acceptance of the

01:25:25--> 01:25:26


01:25:28--> 01:25:32

this one man was making only one

01:25:33--> 01:25:51

alarm Guinea Shan FC Lamborghini Shoreham FC London martinis show NFC, or law protects me from the greed of my soul, or law protects me from the greed of my soul. And he just kept on making this wonder. So this person approached him and asked him

01:25:54--> 01:26:01

that you're always you only make this wonder why? Why do you pray to Allah to protect you from the greed of your soul?

01:26:02--> 01:26:28

So he replied by saying, If Allah protects me from the greed of my soul, then I will not commit this, and I will not commit that. And he went through a list of sins. And what he was saying is, it's greed, which leads to the sins. So if a law can cut the roots for luck and cure me of the very basis, and the roots of all of these sins, then I'm saved.

01:26:29--> 01:26:37

And then the narrator says that lo and behold, the person was none other than the companion Abdurahman in alpha the ally.

01:26:39--> 01:27:22

So long Guinea Shan FCO law protects me from the greed of my soul. I am with this. Let me end by just quickly translating this section again, which we completed today. The second part of sort of defensive, I want me the Arabic I'll just do the quick translation, a lot. Panama says as for man, when his law tests, and then honors him, and blesses him with favors and bounties, he says, My Lord has honored me and asked for a man when his Lord tests and restricts His provision. Then he says, My Lord has disgraced me name you do not honor the orphan, nor do you encourage one another to feed the poor. And you devour

01:27:23--> 01:27:35

inheritance a great devouring, passionate, devouring and you love wealth, and excessive love. I pray that last panel will enable us to understand what's the lock was

01:27:40--> 01:27:44

in panic alarm or to alert you that you learned

01:27:45--> 01:27:46

to wake up.
