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

There was hardly 1520 brothers who came from solitude.

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

And yet when our children go astray, and they start smoking weed, and they start, you know, sporting strange hairstyles

00:00:19--> 00:00:25

and they start wearing starts on their ears and you wonder if they're male or female

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

and they start wearing tight and skimpy pants that shows their outer and you wonder what happened? What when? how did how did how did it come to this? It is because the parents, they had no time for the massage and

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

if that was a coincidence, I also prayed in this Masjid Salah to boho

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

bag. I did not see we prayed select to vote in this Masjid

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

less than one so

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

it is a Sunday.

00:01:04--> 00:01:57

Perhaps someone can explain and say Monday to Friday we're busy at work what happened to Saturday and Sunday Why don't you bring your children to the massage it if you don't have time for the massage it if you don't have time to bring your children to the massage it then a time will come when you will cry not tears but you will cry tears of blood that you would wish you would have done something before but it is too late situation is now out of control. That is why to conclude this Mahara and the theme which was chosen which is flee to Allah subhana wa tada when the scholars gave Tafseer of this verse, they say, one of the meanings of unfair are in Allah to flee to Allah

00:01:59--> 00:02:04

interferer amin uncouth any man. It is to flee from cover to Amen.

00:02:05--> 00:02:59

This is one meaning, and then they say, and tefera mean and na iljin is that you should flee from Hellfire to paradise. And the third meaning they say it is to flee, interfere aminul Mercia to flee from this obedience to the obedience of Allah, all these three it makes up the concept that is known as fulfilled rule in a law II. And so I conclude with this naseeha I say to myself, I say to my brothers and sisters, and everybody that came for this event, let us flee to Allah subhanho wa Taala and so that Allah can fix our lives and so that we can live with Muslims. Then let us fulfill the requirements of this verse for Pharaoh Elahi akula mata smartone was the Fulani. What are some Allah

00:03:28--> 00:03:37

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

The immigration is waiting outside Russia.

00:05:54--> 00:05:58

As I saw a white lady, she must be from the immigration immigration office.

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

at

00:06:03--> 00:06:09

the law school to be back. The chef has a wonderful job.

00:06:10--> 00:06:17

The last panel one data set for a few rules in a law fleet a loss of Hannah who what's

00:06:20--> 00:06:21

under the same theme.

00:06:23--> 00:06:42

I'm going to be talking about sisterships Allah had he motivated us and our he managed to that level, I want to talk about the steps that we can take that will allow us to reach the level that every time something happens we flee to a loss upon or whatever.

00:06:44--> 00:06:46

And I will quote a heavy

00:06:47--> 00:06:48

female scenario

00:06:49--> 00:06:55

what so how many men have either been lonely or loved one.

00:06:58--> 00:07:03

Now I want you to listen to this heading because unless you have mental

00:07:04--> 00:07:13

mental that you segment like that, but until unless you keep off imagine and have that mental picture you won't be able to benefit from that Heidi, Allah.

00:07:16--> 00:07:24

He said all the above on he said I came to the message I saw the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:07:26--> 00:08:04

And on to when I saw the missing job along, I approached him first and I grabbed a HUD to add on I took him by the hand. Now imagine this missing your overload was accessible to all the Sahaba. So this is how he comes. He sees the Messenger of Allah, He takes him by the hand of Dr. Salama manager to Muslim of messenger over law. How can a Muslim be a success? How can a Muslim be successful

00:08:05--> 00:08:16

for the long run? He was an unfollow this heavy now he got a Count with me. Because there are three different sections of the Hadith. And we're going to take one out of time

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

he was sending jacoba

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

Mc katikati sam

00:08:24--> 00:08:27

what do they do with

00:08:29--> 00:08:36

three things? That's the first time that they met cariappa he said

00:08:38--> 00:08:40

take control of your tongue

00:08:42--> 00:08:45

be aware of what your tongue is going to say.

00:08:46--> 00:09:00

You want to be safe you want to be successful you want to flee to a last panel without with no hiccups with no issues with no you know, walls that you run to. He said I'm sick. Take control of your tongue

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

which is very very serious.

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

You know why?

00:09:08--> 00:09:14

Because this thing is the thing that may lead us to jahannam if we would not be careful when

00:09:16--> 00:09:17

listen to that. How do

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

you

00:09:25--> 00:09:32

mean howdy Bahar. Yo, man, can you kill me now he will yo.

00:09:34--> 00:09:35

Man can you

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

tell me?

00:09:45--> 00:09:46

Yes.

00:09:48--> 00:09:51

So ever fears a loss. Colonel. What's the

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

matter whoever believes in a loss of power down on the Day of Resurrection let him say good or be silent.

00:10:01--> 00:10:05

In another heavy admission, your own loss of the long run he was selling them set

00:10:06--> 00:10:15

up the likeness of the likeness of Yeah. Well, the long run, what How did it feel as soon as he killed me it was a hard and bang

00:10:16--> 00:10:28

on jasola Tell me something that I should ask no one else other than yourself. Tell me something. Are

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

you just a hobby?

00:10:31--> 00:10:40

So I meant to be learned from Mr. Payne. He said, say I believe in the law and stay on the right path.

00:10:42--> 00:10:44

Then he said, is that anything else?

00:10:46--> 00:10:53

Then he said the messenger of the law took his tongue out. And he said, take care of this.

00:10:57--> 00:10:58

You know,

00:10:59--> 00:11:08

whatever we say. Whatever we do, if we don't control this thing, it will lead us to Jana Maria the builder

00:11:09--> 00:11:15

because he said he also was sooner the Tivoli media wouldn't imagine what that would was.

00:11:17--> 00:11:19

On a summer long rally, he was setting them.

00:11:21--> 00:11:42

He said, a person may say a Kadima, let you look in a hat, that he's not concerned about the middle one Illa form thing that pleases the last panel with data that that person may be engender. And vice versa. The person may say one thing, one thing

00:11:43--> 00:11:50

and he cares about he doesn't care about it. From the things that is pleased our last panel, whatever it may lead him to Jan.

00:11:52--> 00:11:55

So everything that we do and what did we learn?

00:11:56--> 00:11:57

We have to be careful.

00:11:59--> 00:12:00

I'll tell you a story.

00:12:04--> 00:12:07

Okay, brothers and sisters, so much brothers and sisters Don't get upset.

00:12:09--> 00:12:11

I'm gonna make fun of some of the Somali people.

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

Is this true story?

00:12:16--> 00:12:19

Once this is a story that I will tell you.

00:12:21--> 00:12:26

Do we have anyone under 18 years old from Somali kids? Raise your hands if you're under 18?

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

Under 18

00:12:30--> 00:12:31

Okay, that's your money.

00:12:34--> 00:12:42

This story happened to me, I'm talking about the things that we say and how evil that thing could be and how dangerous that is.

00:12:44--> 00:12:47

Once I was coming out of a lecture,

00:12:48--> 00:12:53

and as you know, brothers and sisters, I always almost always

00:12:54--> 00:12:57

have a white coat and a white coat.

00:12:59--> 00:13:02

Other than the wintertime I don't wear color photos.

00:13:03--> 00:13:09

So, you know, I have my outfit out my my gear. I'm coming from a lecture

00:13:11--> 00:13:14

and I admit to so many systems

00:13:15--> 00:13:16

to so many systems.

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

None of them

00:13:21--> 00:13:25

she was so skinny, like miswak so skinny,

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

tiny, tiny skinny.

00:13:30--> 00:13:35

And she's wearing one of those basketball jerseys. I remember miami heat.

00:13:36--> 00:13:38

Dwyane Wade number three

00:13:39--> 00:13:42

and she's with me she has attitude

00:13:43--> 00:13:47

and the other one Allahu Allah Mashallah Tabata Come on.

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

I'm not gonna say anything about the system.

00:13:53--> 00:13:58

But I think the magic that's happening happens in Somalia is because of that system.

00:13:59--> 00:14:00

just guessing.

00:14:01--> 00:14:02

So I'm coming up.

00:14:04--> 00:14:07

No, Lebanese brothers, I'm coming for you don't relax.

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

I'm coming for you.

00:14:10--> 00:14:26

So the system Mashallah, you know, I'm coming out of the conference, I just gave my lecture, you know, I just want to go home. And these two sisters, they would add it to you know, they how they move their necks. I don't know how they move. You know, it's like this.

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

So she said, Hey, yo,

00:14:32--> 00:14:33

me?

00:14:34--> 00:14:36

She said, Yeah, yo, yo with the dress.

00:14:38--> 00:14:40

She called my throat address.

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

Now she crossed that line.

00:14:44--> 00:14:56

But I'm the man I have to be cool, right? I have to keep me calm and I have to keep my temper. So I didn't say anything. You know, when someone said Yes, sister, how can I help you? She said it's MJ inside.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

I said was MJ Michael

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

Jordan,

00:15:01--> 00:15:06

she's wearing Miami. She said no, I say Michael Jackson.

00:15:08--> 00:15:11

She said, look at this idiot. No.

00:15:13--> 00:15:18

As soon as she said this, the banana hit the roof.

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

The Samantha just came back.

00:15:22--> 00:15:25

I couldn't take it. So I said, sister talk to the hand, and I walked away.

00:15:29--> 00:15:31

And she was saying f this and that.

00:15:32--> 00:15:54

I in my mind, it seems to Pamela, whatever she said, the angels are writing. The angels are recording. If you only knew how much say that she does this again. She would not say she would never said any of these things. So that's why we have to be careful.

00:15:56--> 00:16:01

And authentic happy. Messenger overlock was talking to more ads than Java.

00:16:03--> 00:16:09

And he told him about Islam. He told me about you know, the Deezer we do you know, for all the deeds.

00:16:10--> 00:16:42

And then he said our do look at me Nikita Cuckoo. She said, he said shall not give you a tell you the thing that controls all this, he talked about sada ha, salam, jihad, all the deeds, he says shall not tell you something that, you know, controls all this more important, all of these things? She said, Yes. He said, Take control of this. And then we'll answer jasola law, are we going to be responsible of the things that we say?

00:16:43--> 00:16:52

He said, Oh, more as your mother may lose you. What else we throw people into jahannam other than what the term had collect.

00:16:54--> 00:17:00

And that's why I lost count of what data set in the manual field will mean only in less than a year.

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

He said he would not say anything, except there are two angels, doubt reports, reports, everything. Everything regardless of the things that we say, you know, if we mean it or not.

00:17:19--> 00:17:20

Even when we're deciding on

00:17:21--> 00:17:23

Islam for the sake of Allah,

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

then

00:17:26--> 00:17:27

it's against

00:17:29--> 00:17:37

one of the shields His name is Chef after he told me this story was funny story. Do you have any Syrian brothers?

00:17:39--> 00:17:39

Syrians,

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

okay, have Syrian

00:17:44--> 00:17:48

know, okay, handled that they don't have to say anything about what I'm going to say.

00:17:50--> 00:17:54

He said, you know, in Syria, the chef said,

00:17:55--> 00:17:56

in Syria,

00:17:57--> 00:18:02

they have a wall at the gates of the cemetery. Party.

00:18:06--> 00:18:17

So what they would do is people will come and he would they will say, okay, we will pay you hold on, we pay you I'm sorry. No problem. We pay you money. Go with our disease in the grave.

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

So these people they came.

00:18:21--> 00:18:33

When they came when they came, they saw this young man standing there. And they said, How much would you charge us for you to restart for our disease?

00:18:34--> 00:18:36

He said 30 liters.

00:18:37--> 00:18:41

They say Asha will give you 10.

00:18:42--> 00:18:49

They said he said they said the 10 is nothing they say no 10 Take it or leave

00:18:51--> 00:18:56

the party. He needed a little extra cash. So he said let's go.

00:18:57--> 00:18:59

So they took the party.

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

So and they said this is the grave.

00:19:03--> 00:19:13

And then the party said smilla rahmanir rahim Hulu for lo Thurman, J masala, Tamaki cyxtera.

00:19:17--> 00:19:20

What are you doing all about? I have added

00:19:21--> 00:19:23

I have added

00:19:25--> 00:19:30

taking a snatch and changing ones and this one What are you doing? And then

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

the shift said for Asha Neeraj, you want me to resign in the routine of eternity when

00:19:43--> 00:19:53

I say that, if the person whose intention is not right, even that, you know, is written against the purse. So whatever we do,

00:19:54--> 00:19:55

whatever we do,

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

we have to say do it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

Be careful

00:20:02--> 00:20:03

Be careful.

00:20:04--> 00:20:07

I know we're running out of time and they got to conclude soon.

00:20:08--> 00:20:10

The last story that I have

00:20:12--> 00:20:15

is a story this is again story a

00:20:17--> 00:20:19

lot of young people the universities

00:20:22--> 00:20:26

they say they giving down Am I right?

00:20:27--> 00:20:38

They give down you know non Muslims you know, you have 1000s and 1000s of non Muslims and you want to tell them about Islam and you want to give them that was a lot and so on.

00:20:40--> 00:20:47

And attended a lot of our young men. They like giving that our two girls

00:20:49--> 00:20:52

Mashallah downright good business.

00:20:53--> 00:20:56

But they choose good looking girls

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

good looking guys, not any girls good looking girl.

00:21:02--> 00:21:11

Why don't you give it out to that one? He's like, No, no, no, no, no, she's ugly. She's 900 pounds Mashallah.

00:21:12--> 00:21:16

Why don't you give a girl that I know her heart is like a rock.

00:21:18--> 00:21:31

But this one has so soft Mashallah. Because she's gorgeous. She's beautiful. So one of those girls that she came to my office, she said, I want to become a Muslim.

00:21:32--> 00:21:33

I said great.

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

A lot of

00:21:37--> 00:21:47

Mashallah, welcome to Islam, and I'm giving her material. She said, Yeah, I know a lot about Islam. I mean, I read about a lot about Islam. And I take this material too.

00:21:49--> 00:21:52

And I always know most of the girls

00:21:53--> 00:22:02

will come to the masjid by themselves. Most of them someone else already gave them down. So I said sister

00:22:04--> 00:22:08

Do you know any more so she said, Yeah, my boyfriend's a Muslim? Mashallah.

00:22:13--> 00:22:14

Mashallah.

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

I said, Okay.

00:22:18--> 00:22:26

Where is he from? She said, somewhere somewhere in LA, I think near LA. I said, Wow. I said,

00:22:27--> 00:22:30

white, black. She said he's black.

00:22:31--> 00:22:33

And he's Muslim. Yeah.

00:22:35--> 00:22:36

Why don't you bring him over?

00:22:38--> 00:22:49

I my intention is to tell this Brother, listen, the sister she's going to accept this accept Islam. She's going to be a good Muslim. She's you know, you got to be a role model.

00:22:50--> 00:23:03

You've been giving down you'd be talking to ages of recording all that has set out for you. Now you got to give up a woman you can't be saying you know, I'm a Muslim and a Muslim and then, you know, I have a girlfriend, which is how long

00:23:05--> 00:23:07

so she bought the boy.

00:23:09--> 00:23:13

As soon as as soon as he came to my office,

00:23:14--> 00:23:16

I knew something's wrong with the picture.

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

So I said,

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

Brother, Where are you from? He said I'm from Brazil.

00:23:25--> 00:23:27

I said what he said and

00:23:32--> 00:23:33

I said okay,

00:23:35--> 00:23:38

so time for selected answer King

00:23:39--> 00:23:44

says, Mashallah, you became a Muslim and this guy, you know,

00:23:45--> 00:23:49

that guy Allahu Allah, I'm not saying anything.

00:23:51--> 00:24:04

He doesn't even pray. So it's it's just a broad pray and we will pray I needed I needed time. 10 minutes to talk to the guy. I said, What do ya Somali will do act? I say Yo, you look like Somali. Are you from Somalia?

00:24:05--> 00:24:06

Last October

00:24:10--> 00:24:15

last year, he say I came from Ross out of the village in Somalia.

00:24:17--> 00:24:26

He made her thing that he came from somewhere close to LA because Los Angeles is LA.

00:24:28--> 00:24:30

Right? He came from LA.

00:24:39--> 00:24:40

So he you know,

00:24:41--> 00:24:48

the worst dude, he reminded me of because a lot of people do this. He remind me of Egyptian problem.

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

who called me I used to have a line of fat to refer to a line 800 and something fatwa. And this Egyptian brother he calls me I was in state that time

00:25:00--> 00:25:11

He says, was one step still remember? He says, say he said, Sir Sure. I said yes. He said, and as near me

00:25:15--> 00:25:19

he said, a commit Zina with good intention. Do I have an agenda do I?

00:25:22--> 00:25:23

I said,

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

I say how do you commit Zina with good intention? I couldn't analyze. You committed Zina, and you will have to be worried for the Xena expressed to me.

00:25:38--> 00:25:47

He said, Look, look how smart this guy was. He said, I go to the university. I see a system

00:25:48--> 00:25:49

you know,

00:25:50--> 00:25:59

that is who's ready for now. So I give him a down. I become I said, you tell about it. No, no, no, no. I just become her girlfriend or boyfriend.

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

And then I said, Why don't you move in with me?

00:26:04--> 00:26:14

When she moves in with me, I see lives with me. I tell her about Islam. When she becomes a semi said Sister xenos Hara Now move out.

00:26:15--> 00:26:17

And then another sister comes.

00:26:18--> 00:26:20

He's been recycling women,

00:26:21--> 00:26:23

for the purpose of Dara

00:26:24--> 00:26:28

but even that the angels are writing

00:26:29--> 00:26:33

evil deeds, periodically. He was selling them.

00:26:35--> 00:26:36

He said I'm sick.

00:26:38--> 00:26:52

He said take control of your time. Take control of your time. But it has also he mentioned when you if you want to say something if you want to speak, then you got to do

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

the common law. Come up with a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, like

00:27:04--> 00:27:18

I said he let you turn the most wet with the remembrance of the loss of Hannah. So this is the first nursia that Akbar gathered from the messenger overboard. The second see how he sets up the

00:27:19--> 00:27:20

parlor

00:27:21--> 00:27:23

when he asaka be to

00:27:24--> 00:27:37

what the asaka beta. He said let your house contain you. Let your house be enough for you. A lot of people they like to go outside outside of their house.

00:27:45--> 00:27:47

He said that your house

00:27:48--> 00:27:54

is spacious enough for you which means you don't go out unnecessary

00:27:55--> 00:27:56

insulation Buhari

00:27:58--> 00:28:06

was soon attended a meeting. The minister decided he was banning your coronary so in the Navy, he was

00:28:07--> 00:28:09

at the university as

00:28:11--> 00:28:16

the as the Messenger of Allah, Who are the best of all mankind.

00:28:19--> 00:28:29

He was setting them and man a person who gives himself he sold his wealth for the sake of Allah.

00:28:30--> 00:28:43

What have you done? And a man who lives in a suburb area code for nurser in Shang he protects people from his evil

00:28:44--> 00:28:56

he protects his people, he protects the people from his evil. So the messenger over loss of long run he was sentenced these are the best of people person who does

00:28:57--> 00:29:08

the third point that I will conclude I know we took more than what we can handle tonight. The third point on what Kiana hottie attic,

00:29:09--> 00:29:13

he said you must read you must cry

00:29:14--> 00:29:33

for your sin. And when we commit sin, we must cry because we know the punishment of a loss of Hannah who wattana we cry a lot for for other things. If If your husband is mad at you system, sisters they were crying Mashallah.

00:29:35--> 00:29:54

If you know if you get fired from your job, you will cry a lot of us or cry for money. If you lose something in business, you may cry, you know, but when it comes to the sin that we commit, we hardly cry. So the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

what can either have the attic webecanik

00:30:03--> 00:30:12

I have to conclude here in sha Allah because financially I want to just tell you the second part of the Hadees and leave the third for other times because it will help you. You're

00:30:14--> 00:30:17

gonna summon up a Taurus, a Taurus

00:30:18--> 00:30:40

amid the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah, tada, Ronnie, the Messenger of Allah, he's only initiated a contact for God to Birmingham. He took me by the hand for Allah teach you the three so the best three so that was ever revealed

00:30:42--> 00:30:43

to Bella

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

Mia Soma

00:30:51--> 00:30:52

Pilipinas

00:30:54--> 00:31:05

and then he said to him Latin sanghoon Do not forget them out of our country may Allah subhana wa Tada. We were you for listening.

00:31:06--> 00:31:11

It came to my mind when chef Sorry, just Allah Hi, Ronnie say

00:31:12--> 00:31:32

that if you gave 1000 Allah will give you on a minimum of 10,000. Now listen to this real life story. In 2005 I traveled from Nairobi, Kenya, back home in Africa. I went all the way to the city of Minneapolis in the state of Minnesota.

00:31:34--> 00:31:35

I went on a downward trip.

00:31:37--> 00:31:45

When I was in Minnesota, in Minnesota, Minneapolis, a brother he communicates with me from back home in Nairobi, Kenya,

00:31:46--> 00:31:50

this young brother, he was about to get married.

00:31:51--> 00:31:52

And he

00:31:53--> 00:32:02

called to me and say that he wanted my support. I said no problem. Brother, I will support you with whatever I can.

00:32:03--> 00:32:05

And Allah was a witness

00:32:06--> 00:32:13

that I had no more than 400 US dollars in my pocket. And that was all that I had.

00:32:14--> 00:32:22

So I went to the hawala which is the money transfer system. And I sent this brother 400 US dollars.

00:32:24--> 00:32:25

A few days later,

00:32:26--> 00:32:30

my uncle, the brother to my mother.

00:32:31--> 00:32:46

He hears that I'm here from Africa. I'm Danny from Africa. And he is a taxi driver in New York City. So he comes driving all the way from New York to Minneapolis. It took him 18 hours of driving.

00:32:47--> 00:32:50

And when he came and he saw me he was so happy.

00:32:52--> 00:33:04

He took out an envelope from his pocket. And he gave it to me he say here I'm called, this is a gift for you. I took it from him. When I went back home and I opened the envelope.

00:33:05--> 00:33:19

I counted inside this envelope for $1,000. One law he for every dollar that I gave to that brother, Allah gave me 10 Is this the only incident No.

00:33:21--> 00:33:25

Two Ramadan's ago, I stood up in a Masjid.

00:33:26--> 00:33:47

I stood up in a Masjid, it was in Ramadan, I say to the brothers who pray to the in the message and the sisters. I say brothers the norm, is they request you to give $1 a day for other days besides Ramadan, but hardly anyone is ever willing to spend $1 on the house of Allah.

00:33:48--> 00:33:52

I was in a mesquite in column, Columbus, Ohio.

00:33:53--> 00:34:01

The MSG it has on a Japan 1500 people praying Japan at any given time.

00:34:02--> 00:34:04

And guess how much they collect.

00:34:06--> 00:34:14

They only collect on a good Juma between three and 400 US dollars. How many drummers are there in a month?

00:34:15--> 00:34:23

How many drummers are there in a month for so the best connection is 400 per month, how much is that?

00:34:24--> 00:34:32

1600 tell me In the name of Allah can 1600 maintain a Masjid for a whole month

00:34:35--> 00:34:39

1500 people praying in the house of Allah.

00:34:41--> 00:34:59

That means it is an average of a person giving. If only they would give half $1 then they would have raised 750 that means every person on average, they give a quarter to Allah. Did they give a quarter to Tim Hortons

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

garden attendees and see if you can buy anything with a quarter.

00:35:05--> 00:35:12

Go to them and see if you can buy your coffee for just $1. How much is coffee coffee cost?

00:35:13--> 00:35:18

How much is a coffee at Tim Hortons? How much is it?

00:35:20--> 00:35:29

$1 $1.60 and if you belong to a higher class and you go to Starbucks, how much does it cost?

00:35:30--> 00:35:33

Almost $4 at Starbucks

00:35:34--> 00:35:37

and some people have class do they don't go to Tim Hortons.

00:35:38--> 00:35:54

Tim Hortons is for ordinary people. So they go to Starbucks, and they spend an average of four up to $10 a day just drinking coffee. And when they come to the masjid, they say Allah, we will not even give you a single dollar

00:35:56--> 00:35:57

rosalinda

00:35:59--> 00:36:02

we seek Allah directly from stinginess.

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

And so let me remind you this.

00:36:07--> 00:36:18

And so I told the brothers in domesticated sisters in Ramadan, that instead of giving $1 in Ramadan, letters, trying to give $2 a day in Ramadan,

00:36:19--> 00:36:39

how much is how much is the total for the whole 30 days of Ramadan $60. So I say brothers and sisters, instead of reminding you every day bring you $2 one day you bring 10 days you don't bring. So let us make a promise that tomorrow, we will all bring $60 to the machine

00:36:40--> 00:36:47

and then have the villa we made a promise that the next day, as we pray that I wish we will bring $60 to the masjid

00:36:48--> 00:37:06

and saw that the brothers and sisters they don't say this to you who ask us to give them they just make us give but they never give anything. They're so stingy. The Somali community they say you will only hear a chef saying give you will never hear a chef saying take

00:37:09--> 00:37:18

and so that night I decided to become the first person to give I say brothers and sisters I come from a place called Africa.

00:37:19--> 00:37:27

We don't get to see dollars. And the day when we see dollars it is read for us we celebrate on that day.

00:37:28--> 00:37:33

And so I took $60 that I had in my pocket and I was the first person to get it.

00:37:35--> 00:37:57

Next day from that city of Rochester in Minnesota, I went back to Minneapolis, one brother, a very close brother to me, his name is Hasson he came to me and gave me a small envelope and say, Honey, this is a gift for you. Please buy something for your children. And I took the gift because

00:37:58--> 00:38:09

he never refused a gift from anyone. So I took this gift. When I went back to my place I opened this envelope, there was 500 US dollars.

00:38:10--> 00:38:20

It is not the same day, another brother comes to me. And he says, honey, I insist that you take this $100

00:38:21--> 00:38:51

I said so Panama and how much was the total brothers and sisters? $600 How much did I give for the sake of Allah the previous day I gave $60 and the next day Allah gave me $600 and one law he whenever I give, I do not have the slightest doubt in my heart, that if I give for the sake of Allah, Allah will give me far more than I give.

00:38:54--> 00:39:21

Perhaps the sun that you give, it will make Allah protect your children. You are in need of protection for your children. Perhaps the sadaqa you give it will make a karate mount easy when you're about to die and the Angel of Death comes to take away your knife. Perhaps the solder that you gave today. It will make you it will make your passage your exit passage for this life easy.

00:39:22--> 00:39:24

Listen to this amazing real life story.

00:39:26--> 00:39:28

When iraq invaded Kuwait

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

and the people of Kuwait were running away from their country fleeing with their lives.

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

A Kuwaiti family was heading and they were seeking to exit through the through the Kuwaiti border.

00:39:44--> 00:39:53

But they did not know the direction to the warrior. And so as they were driving across the desert, they come across a group of Iraqi soldiers.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

And they asked for directions show us the way to the border the Cerruti Borden.

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

They show them the direction.

00:40:03--> 00:40:13

As soon as they drive off an old woman, a grandmother within the family, she says, Let us go back and give them some food.

00:40:14--> 00:40:31

And the rest of the family say no, how can we give them food? They just invaded our country, and they're making us leave our country. She said, No, these are poor people who have been forced against their will to come and invaders. Let us go back and give them some food sadaqa.

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

And so reluctantly, the driver, he turned back the car, they went, and they gave them some food. Now, guess what happened? One of the Iraqi soldiers say to them, the direction we gave you is the wrong direction. In front of you, the whole journey has been filled with minds, you would not have gone very far, you would have been blown into pieces.

00:41:01--> 00:41:35

But since you came back and showed us your clean hearts, we will show you that we too are human beings, we will direct you to the right direction, which will take you to this early border. And the headings of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says in the Masai Mara, Turkey Masada so when you do something good for the sake of Allah, it will keep evil away from you. Perhaps you give tonight something bad is about to happen to you or your family. And this suddenly becomes a shoo in for you.

00:41:36--> 00:41:40

We're asking you to give for the sake of a law's house.

00:41:42--> 00:41:43

Allah says in the Quran.

00:41:46--> 00:41:51

Allah to the tune Filippo feasability law firm in common.

00:41:53--> 00:41:53

Woman Yep.

00:41:55--> 00:41:55

Yep.

00:41:57--> 00:41:58

For many of

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

our says, Here you are, you have been invited to give for the sake of Allah and some people are stingy, they hold back. And Allah says, Whosoever who is stingy. He is only holding back from himself. Today I need you to choose between two promises, the promise of Allah and the promise of Shiva. Which one do you want brothers and sisters? I need to hear

00:42:29--> 00:42:34

the promise of Allah then listen to the promise of Allah. The promise of Allah is

00:42:35--> 00:42:36

young.

00:42:38--> 00:42:39

And

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

the Hadith is right there the door.

00:42:45--> 00:42:55

Oh, son of Adam, spend and I will spend on you. That is a promise of Allah. Now listen to the promise of shape by

00:42:56--> 00:43:01

the promise of shape by shape. We are ready to come on.

00:43:03--> 00:43:28

Shane Dawson, he promises you poverty. He says don't give. Why would you give to the extent that when people are collecting sadaqa for the machine, and the brother comes with the box. And this brother, he looks inside his pocket, and he wants to put something in the box, and he looks inside his pocket. And he sees 50 and he says, I'm seeing now

00:43:30--> 00:43:36

he looks again 23 it will never happen.

00:43:37--> 00:43:51

He looks inside 1010 is too much. Eventually, he takes out $1 and he puts it in a box like as if he's taking out his heart and putting it in the box.

00:43:55--> 00:44:04

So painful. I come from a country that is 70% Christians. Let me tell you this real life story.

00:44:06--> 00:44:07

In my local area,

00:44:09--> 00:44:18

there was a skirmish. There was an altercation between Muslims and Christians. And so the Christians burned down a Masjid.

00:44:19--> 00:44:23

And the Muslims in retaliation they went and they burned down a church.

00:44:25--> 00:44:37

And so the Christians they gathered together and they collected money. And within one year, they built a magnificent church worth 1 million US dollars.

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

The message that was burned down, they built a temporary structure made of food.

00:44:45--> 00:44:53

And guess what? The temporary messages is still the same almost 10 years later.

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

There is no religion on the face of this earth.

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

has promised so much he wants to set that up more than Islam.

00:45:05--> 00:45:16

So I go back to you, my brothers and sisters, who will raise his hand for the sake of Allah and say that I pledge $1,000 for this mystery

00:45:18--> 00:45:33

what is $1,000 that you give for the sake of Allah, raise your hand high so that we can see you, brothers and sisters, what is 1000 today, if you need to buy new furniture for your house, you will gladly spend more than $1,000.

00:45:34--> 00:45:44

But this is your money, don't think that you're giving this money it will go to waste, this money is going to a special account. And Allah will keep it in store for you.

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

One brother, he gave this example he say sadaqa listen to this sadaqa is like a box that has been covered. And every day you put something in this big box, everyday you put something

00:46:02--> 00:46:04

until one day

00:46:05--> 00:46:24

they decide to open this box. And when the box has been opened, behold, the boxes fill up to the top, solder paste the same. You give here you give them you give here you give to the question you give to the cause. And then the old one.

00:46:26--> 00:46:34

When you are given your book of deeds, and you open it, and you see your sadhaka you wish that you would have given more

00:46:38--> 00:46:39

or the unbanned

00:46:40--> 00:46:52

honor jasola Tell me something that I should ask no one else other than yourself. Tell me something or

00:46:53--> 00:46:54

a hobby.

00:46:55--> 00:47:04

So I meant to be learned from Mr. Payne. He said say I believe in a mall and stay on the right path.

00:47:06--> 00:47:08

Then he said Is there anything else?

00:47:10--> 00:47:17

Then he said the messenger of the law took his tongue out and he said take care of this.

00:47:21--> 00:47:22

You know

00:47:23--> 00:47:32

whatever we say whatever we do, if we don't control this thing, it will lead us to Johanna Maria de Ville

00:47:33--> 00:47:39

because he said he had Buhari also was soon an intermediate wouldn't imagine what that would was

00:47:41--> 00:47:43

on a summer long while he was setting them.

00:47:45--> 00:47:49

He said a person may say a Kadima let you look in a hat

00:47:50--> 00:48:06

that is not concerned about the middle one Illa form thing that pleases the last panel with Donna that that person may be engender and five first the person may say one thing one thing

00:48:07--> 00:48:14

and he cares about he doesn't care about it. From the things that displease our last panel, whatever it may lead him to Jan.

00:48:16--> 00:48:18

So everything that we do

00:48:20--> 00:48:21

we have to be careful.

00:48:23--> 00:48:24

After you story.

00:48:28--> 00:48:31

A brother and sister so much Brother, Sister, don't get upset.

00:48:33--> 00:48:35

I'm gonna make fun of some of the Somali people.

00:48:36--> 00:48:38

Is this true story?

00:48:40--> 00:48:43

Once this is a story that I will tell you.

00:48:45--> 00:48:50

Do we have anyone under 18 years old from Somali kids? Raise your hands who's under 18?

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

Under 18

00:48:54--> 00:48:55

Okay, that's your money.

00:48:58--> 00:49:06

This story happened to me, I'm talking about the things that we say and how evil that thing could be and how dangerous that is.

00:49:08--> 00:49:11

Once I was coming out of a lecture,

00:49:12--> 00:49:17

and as you know, brothers and sisters, I always almost always

00:49:18--> 00:49:21

have a white coat and a white coat.

00:49:23--> 00:49:26

Other than the wintertime I don't wear color thobes.

00:49:27--> 00:49:33

So, you know, I have my outfit out my dear uncoming formal lecture

00:49:35--> 00:49:38

and I admit to so many systems

00:49:39--> 00:49:40

to Somali system.

00:49:41--> 00:49:43

None of them

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

she was so skinny, like miswak so skinny,

00:49:51--> 00:49:53

tiny, tiny skinny.

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

She's wearing one of those basketball jerseys. I remember Miami Heat

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

Duane Reade number three

00:50:03--> 00:50:06

and she's with me she has attitude.

00:50:07--> 00:50:11

And the other one, Allahu Allah, Masha, Allah, Allah.

00:50:13--> 00:50:16

I'm not gonna say anything about the sister.

00:50:17--> 00:50:22

But I think the majah that's happening happens in Somalia is because of that system

00:50:23--> 00:50:24

just guessing

00:50:25--> 00:50:26

so I'm coming up.

00:50:28--> 00:50:31

No Lebanese brothers, I'm coming for you don't relax.

00:50:32--> 00:50:33

I'm coming for you.

00:50:34--> 00:50:50

So the system Mashallah, you know, I'm coming out of the conference, I just gave my lecture, you know, I'm gonna go home. And these two sisters, they would add it to you know, they how they move their necks out on the moon. You know, it's like this.

00:50:52--> 00:50:53

So she said, Hey, yo,

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

me?

00:50:58--> 00:51:00

She said, Yeah, yo, yo with the dress.

00:51:02--> 00:51:04

She called my throat address.

00:51:05--> 00:51:07

Now she crossed the line.

00:51:08--> 00:51:20

But I'm the man I have to be cool, right? I have to keep my cool man. I have to keep my temper. So I didn't say anything. You know, when someone said Yes, sister, how can I help you? She said, it's MJ inside.

00:51:22--> 00:51:24

I said was MJ Michael Jordan.

00:51:25--> 00:51:30

She's wearing Miami. She said no. I say Michael Jackson.

00:51:32--> 00:51:35

She said look at this idiot. No.

00:51:37--> 00:51:42

As soon as she said this, the banana hit the roof.

00:51:43--> 00:51:44

The Samantha just came back.

00:51:46--> 00:51:49

I couldn't take it. So I said sister talk to the hand and I walked away.

00:51:53--> 00:51:55

And she was saying f this f that

00:51:56--> 00:52:18

I in my mind seems to panela whatever she said, the angels are writing. The angels are recording. If she only knew how much say that she does this again. She would never say she would never said any of these things. So that's why we have to be careful.

00:52:20--> 00:52:25

Nothing heavy. Messenger overload was talking to more than Java.

00:52:27--> 00:52:33

And he told him about Islam. He told me about you know the Deezer we do you know for all the deeds.

00:52:34--> 00:53:06

And then he said our do look at me Nikita Cuckoo. She said he said shall not give you a tell you. The thing that controls all this. He talked about sada has Salalah g had all the deeds. He says I'm not telling you something that you know, controls all this more important, all of these things. He said yes. He said, Take control of this. And then more acid jasola Are we going to be responsible of the things that we say?

00:53:07--> 00:53:16

He said, Oh, more add your mother may lose you. What else we throw people into jahannam other than what the term had collect?

00:53:18--> 00:53:25

And that's our last panel, what data set is upon, man yo filmin od Illa de la

00:53:26--> 00:53:41

he's a he would not say anything, except there are two angels. That reports reports, everything. Everything regardless of the things that we say, you know, if we mean it or not

00:53:43--> 00:53:44

even what we're deciding on.

00:53:45--> 00:53:47

If it's not for the sake of a lot,

00:53:48--> 00:53:49

then

00:53:50--> 00:53:51

it's against us.

00:53:53--> 00:54:01

One of the shields His name is Chef after he told me this story was funny story. Do you have any Syrian brothers?

00:54:03--> 00:54:04

00:54:05--> 00:54:06

Okay, half Syrian?

00:54:08--> 00:54:12

No. Okay. handled that they don't have to say anything about what I'm about to say.

00:54:14--> 00:54:20

He said, you know, in Syria, the chef set in Syria,

00:54:21--> 00:54:25

So, what they will do is people will come and he will they will say okay, we will pay you with a yes or no and we pay you money, go with our disease in the grave.

00:54:42--> 00:54:44

So these people they came

when they came when they came, they saw this young men standing there and they said, How much would you charge us for you to resign for our disease?

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

He said 13

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

00:55:01--> 00:55:05

They say Asha will give you 10.

00:55:06--> 00:55:13

They said he said they said the 10 is nothing they say no 10 Take it or leave

00:55:15--> 00:55:20

the party he needed the extra cash. So he said let's go.

00:55:21--> 00:55:23

So they took the body.

00:55:24--> 00:55:26

So and they said this is the grave.

00:55:27--> 00:55:35

And then the party said smilla rahmanir rahim Hulu for lo Thurman Johanna

00:55:56--> 00:56:03

the chef said for Asha Neeraj, you want me to resign in the booth Athena fija knotty when

00:56:07--> 00:56:17

I say that, if the person whose intentions not right, even that, you know, is written against the purse, so whatever we do,

whatever we do,

00:56:20--> 00:56:25

00:56:26--> 00:56:27

Be careful.

00:56:28--> 00:56:31

I know I'm running out of time and I got to conclude soon.

00:56:32--> 00:56:34

The last story that I have

00:56:36--> 00:56:39

is a story. This is again a story a

00:56:41--> 00:56:44

lot of young people the universities

00:56:46--> 00:56:50

they say they giving down my right

00:56:51--> 00:57:02

00:57:04--> 00:57:11

And then handed in a lot of our young men. They like giving the power to girls

00:57:13--> 00:57:16

Mashallah downright good business.

00:57:17--> 00:57:20

But they choose good looking girls.

00:57:22--> 00:57:24

Good looking as not any girls good looking girl.

00:57:26--> 00:57:35

Why don't you give it to that one? He's a no no, no, no, no, she's ugly. She's 900 pounds, Mashallah.

00:57:37--> 00:57:40

00:57:42--> 00:57:48

But this one has so software Sharla because she's gorgeous. She's beautiful.

00:57:49--> 00:57:55

So one of those girls, she came to my office. She said I want to become a Muslim.

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

I said great.

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

Allah Aqua

00:58:01--> 00:58:11

Mashallah. Welcome to slam and I'm giving her material. She said yeah, I know a lot about Islam. I mean, I read about a lot about Islam. And I take this material too.

00:58:13--> 00:58:16

And I always know most of the girls

00:58:17--> 00:58:26

will come to the masjid by themselves. Most of them someone else already gave them down. So I said sister

00:58:28--> 00:58:32

Do you know any more so she said yeah, my boyfriend's a Muslim? Mashallah.

00:58:37--> 00:58:38

00:58:42--> 00:58:50

Where is he from? She said, somewhere somewhere in LA, I think near LA. I said, Wow. I said,

00:58:51--> 00:58:54

white, black. She said he's black.

00:58:55--> 00:58:57

And he's Muslim. Yeah.

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

Why don't you bring him over?

00:59:02--> 00:59:13

I my intention is to tell this Brother, listen, the sister she's gonna accept this accept Islam. She's gonna be a good Muslim. She's you know, you got to be a woman.

00:59:14--> 00:59:27

You've been giving down. You've been talking to ages that we've caught and all that has set out for you. Now you got to give up a woman. You can't be saying, you know, I'm a Muslim and a Muslim. And then you have a girlfriend, which is how.

00:59:29--> 00:59:31

So she bought the boy.

00:59:33--> 00:59:37

As soon as as soon as he came to my office.

00:59:38--> 00:59:40

I knew something's wrong with the picture.

00:59:42--> 00:59:42

So I said,

00:59:44--> 00:59:46

Brother, Where are you from? He said, I'm from Brazil.

00:59:49--> 00:59:51

I said what? He said and

00:59:56--> 00:59:57

I said okay.

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

So

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

Time for selected answer King

01:00:03--> 01:00:08

says Mashallah you became a Muslim and this guy, you know,

01:00:09--> 01:00:13

that guy, Allahu Allah. I'm not saying anything.

01:00:15--> 01:00:28

He doesn't even pray. So it's it's just a broad pray and we were praying I needed I needed time. 10 minutes to talk to the guy. I said, What do ya so monimoto Act is a yo you look like Somali. Are you from Somalia?

01:00:29--> 01:00:30

Last October

01:00:34--> 01:00:39

last year, he say I came from Ross out of the village in Somalia.

01:00:41--> 01:00:50

He made his thing that he came from somewhere close to LA because Los Angeles is LA.

01:00:52--> 01:00:53

Right? He came from

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

so he, you know,

01:01:05--> 01:01:12

the worst day really reminded me of because a lot of people do this. You remind me of Egyptian brother

01:01:13--> 01:01:35

who called me I used to have a line of fun to refer to a line 800 and something footwork. And this Egyptian brother he calls me hours instead of time. And he says was Wednesday. I'm still remember. He says, say he says sir. Sure. I said yes. He said and as near me.

01:01:40--> 01:01:43

He said I commit Zina with good intention to have agile in that like

01:01:46--> 01:01:47

I said,

01:01:49--> 01:02:00

I say how do you commit Zina with good intention? I couldn't analyze. You committed Zina, and you want to reward you for the Zener expressed to me.

01:02:02--> 01:02:11

He said, Look, look how smart this guy was. He said, I go to the university. I see a system

01:02:12--> 01:02:13

you know,

01:02:14--> 01:02:23

that is who's ready for Tao. So I give you $1 I become I said you tell about it. So is it No, no, no, no. I just become her girlfriend or boyfriend.

01:02:24--> 01:02:27

And then I said why don't you move in with me.

01:02:28--> 01:02:38

When she moves in with me, I she lives with me. I tell her about Islam. When she becomes a semi said sisters in his harem Now move out.

01:02:39--> 01:02:41

And then another sister comes.

01:02:42--> 01:02:44

He's been recycling women

01:02:45--> 01:02:47

for the purpose of Daraa.

01:02:48--> 01:02:52

But even that dour, the angels are writing

01:02:53--> 01:02:55

evil deeds.

01:02:56--> 01:02:57

He was selling them.

01:02:59--> 01:03:00

He said I'm sick it

01:03:02--> 01:03:16

is a take control of your turn. Take control of your tongue. But it has also he mentioned when you if you want to say something if you want to speak then you got to do

01:03:17--> 01:03:24

Vicar of Allah. Catherine Mohan Alain Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said like

01:03:28--> 01:03:42

I said he let you turn the most wet with the remembrance of Allah subhana wa so this is the first naseeha that rock burger from the messenger Obama. The second see how he says a lot he said

01:03:45--> 01:03:47

when he asaka Beto

01:03:48--> 01:04:01

when the asaka beta he said let your house contain you let your house big enough for you a lot of people they love to go outside outside of their house but

01:04:09--> 01:04:11

he said that your house

01:04:12--> 01:04:18

is spacious enough for you which means you don't go out unnecessary

01:04:19--> 01:04:20

insulation Buhari

01:04:22--> 01:04:33

was soon in attendance at the Middle Easterners say was around and banning your coronary so in a Navy body he was sitting at the university as

01:04:35--> 01:04:40

the as the Messenger of Allah, Who are the best of all mankind.

01:04:41--> 01:04:53

For such a long rally he was sending them a man a person who gives himself he sold his wealth for the sake of Allah.

01:04:54--> 01:04:59

What are you doing? And a man who lives in

01:05:00--> 01:05:07

The server area code for NASA mission. He protects people from his evil.

01:05:08--> 01:05:20

He protects his people. He protects the people from his evil. So the messenger on the loss of of long run he was sentenced. These are the best of people, person who does.

01:05:21--> 01:05:32

The third point that I will conclude I know took more than what we can handle tonight. The third point on what Kiana hottie attic,

01:05:33--> 01:05:37

he said you must read, you must cry

01:05:38--> 01:05:57

for your sin. And when we commit sin, we must cry because we know the punishment of a loss of Hannah who was sad. We cry a lot for for other things. If If your husband is mad at you, sister, sisters, they were crying, Mashallah.

01:05:59--> 01:06:18

If you know, if you get fired from your job, you will cry. A lot of us will cry for money. If you lose something in business, you may cry, you know, but when it comes to the sins that we commit, we hardly cry. So maybe some of them said

01:06:19--> 01:06:23

What can I do to help the attic? What can

01:06:27--> 01:06:36

I have to conclude here in Charlotte? Because financially I want to just tell you the second part of the Hadees and leave the third for other times because it will help you you

01:06:38--> 01:06:39

can assume and

01:06:42--> 01:06:56

then I met the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah Tada, Ronnie, the messenger overlord he's doing he initiated a contact for the bat into Birmingham. He took me by the hand

01:06:57--> 01:07:04

and I teach you the three song The best three so that was ever revealed

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

to Bella Hidaka Abby omiana Soma

01:07:15--> 01:07:16

Pilipinas.

01:07:18--> 01:07:29

And then he said to him, Latin San hoonah Do not forget them up on our country may last parallel with that. We weren't you for listening.

01:07:30--> 01:07:35

It came to my mind when chef Sorry, just Allah Hi, Ronnie say,

01:07:36--> 01:07:56

there if you gave 1000 Allah will give you on a minimum of 10,000. Now listen to this real life story. In 2005. I traveled from Nairobi, Kenya, back home in Africa. I went all the way to the city of Minneapolis in the state of Minnesota.

01:07:58--> 01:07:59

I went on a dour trip.

01:08:01--> 01:08:09

When I was in Minnesota in Minnesota, Minneapolis, a brother he communicates with me from back home in Nairobi, Kenya.

01:08:10--> 01:08:14

This young brother, he was about to get married.

01:08:15--> 01:08:26

And he called to me and say that he wanted my support. I said no problem blood brother, I will support you with whatever I can.

01:08:27--> 01:08:29

And Allah was a witness

01:08:30--> 01:08:37

that I had no more than 400 US dollars in my pocket. And that was all that I had.

01:08:38--> 01:08:46

So I went to the hawala which is the money transfer system. And I sent this brother 400 US dollars.

01:08:48--> 01:08:49

A few days later,

01:08:50--> 01:08:54

my uncle, the brother to my mother,

01:08:55--> 01:09:10

he is that I am here from Africa. I am Danny from Africa. And he is a taxi driver in New York City. So he comes driving all the way from New York to Minneapolis. It took him 18 hours of driving.

01:09:12--> 01:09:14

And when he came and he saw me he was so happy.

01:09:16--> 01:09:43

He took out an envelope from his pocket. And he gave it to me he say here I'm called. This is a gift for you. I took it from him. When I went back home and I opened the envelope. I counted inside this envelope for $1,000. One law he for every dollar that I gave to that brother, Allah gave me 10 Is this the only incident No.

01:09:45--> 01:09:49

Two Ramadan's ago, I stood up in a message.

01:09:50--> 01:09:59

I stood up in a message, it was in Ramadan, I say to the brothers who pray to the in the message and the sisters. I say brothers, the norm

01:10:00--> 01:10:11

Is the request you to give $1 a day for other days besides Ramadan, but hardly anyone is ever willing to spend $1 on the house of Allah.

01:10:12--> 01:10:16

I was in a mesquite in column, Columbus, Ohio.

01:10:17--> 01:10:25

The MSG it has on a Japan 1500 people praying Japan at any given time.

01:10:26--> 01:10:28

And guess how much they collect?

01:10:30--> 01:10:38

They only collect on a good Juma between three and 400 US dollars. How many drummers are there in a month?

01:10:39--> 01:10:47

How many drummers are there in a month for so the best collection is 400 per month, how much is that

01:10:48--> 01:10:56

1600 tell me In the name of Allah can 1600 maintain a Masjid for a whole month

01:10:59--> 01:11:03

1500 people praying in the house of Allah.

01:11:05--> 01:11:27

That means it is an average of a person giving, if only they would give half a daughter then they would have raised 750 that means every person on average, they give a quarter to Allah that they give a quarter to Tim Hortons garden attendees and see if you can buy anything with a quarter

01:11:30--> 01:11:36

go to them and see if you can buy your coffee for just $1 How much is the coffee coffee cost?

01:11:37--> 01:11:42

How much is a coffee at Tim Hortons? How much is it?

01:11:44--> 01:11:53

$1 $1.60. And if you belong to a higher class and you go to Starbucks, how much does it cost?

01:11:54--> 01:11:57

Almost $4 at Starbucks

01:11:58--> 01:12:01

and some people have class do they don't go to Tim Hortons?

01:12:02--> 01:12:18

Tim Hortons is for ordinary people. So they go to Starbucks and they spend an average of four up to $10 a day just drinking coffee and when they come to the masjid, they say Allah, we will not even give you a single dollar

01:12:20--> 01:12:21

rule.

01:12:23--> 01:12:26

We seek Allah directly from stinginess.

01:12:29--> 01:12:30

And so let me remind you this.

01:12:31--> 01:12:42

And so I told the brothers and domesticated sisters in Ramadan, that instead of giving $1 in Ramadan letters, try to give $2 a day in Ramadan.

01:12:43--> 01:13:03

How much is a thought how much is the total for the whole 30 days of Ramadan. $60 So I say brothers and sisters, instead of reminding you every day bring you $2 one day you bring 10 days you don't bring. So let us make a promise that tomorrow, we will all bring $60 to the masjid

01:13:04--> 01:13:11

and and hamdulillah we made a promise that the next day as we pray to Allah which will bring $60 to the masjid

01:13:12--> 01:13:30

and saw that the brothers and sisters they don't say this to you who ask us to give them they just make us give but they never give anything. They're so stingy. The Somali community they say you will only hear a chef saying give you will never hear chef say take.

01:13:33--> 01:13:42

And so that night I decided to become the first person to give. I say brothers and sisters I come from a place called Africa.

01:13:43--> 01:13:51

We don't get to see dollars. And the day when we see dollars it is read for us we celebrate on that day.

01:13:52--> 01:13:57

And so I took $60 that I had in my pocket and I was the first person to get it.

01:13:59--> 01:14:33

Next day from that city of Rochester in Minnesota, I went back to Minneapolis. One brother, a very close brother to me, his name is Hudson. He came to me and gave me a small envelope. Let's say abdulghani This is a gift for you. Please buy something for your children. I took the gift because of my son. He never refused a gift from anyone. So I took this gift. When I went back to my place I opened this envelope. There was 500 US dollars.

01:14:34--> 01:14:44

It is not yet over. Same day, another brother comes to me and he says, honey, I insist that you take this $100

01:14:45--> 01:14:57

I said so Panama and how much was the total brothers and sisters? $600 How much did I give for the sake of Allah the previous day

01:14:58--> 01:14:59

I gave $60

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

The next day Allah gave me $600 and one law he, whenever I give, I do not have the slightest doubt in my heart, that if I give for the sake of Allah, Allah will give me far more than I give.

01:15:18--> 01:15:45

Perhaps the son after that you give, it will make a law protect your children, you are in need of laws protection for your children. Perhaps the sadaqa you give, it will make a karate mount easy when you're about to die and the Angel of Death comes to take away your knife, perhaps the solder that you gave today, it will make you it will make your passage your exit passage for this life easy.

01:15:46--> 01:15:48

Listen to this amazing real life story.

01:15:50--> 01:15:52

When iraq invaded Kuwait,

01:15:53--> 01:15:58

and the people of Kuwait were running away from their country fleeing with their knives,

01:15:59--> 01:16:06

a Kuwaiti family was heading and they were seeking to exit through the through the Kuwaiti border.

01:16:08--> 01:16:17

But they did not know the direction to the warrior. And so as they were driving across the desert, they come across a group of Iraqi soldiers.

01:16:19--> 01:16:23

And they asked for directions show us the way to the border, the Cerruti border.

01:16:24--> 01:16:26

And they showed them the direction.

01:16:27--> 01:16:37

As soon as they drive off an old woman, a grandmother within the family, she says, Let us go back and give them some food.

01:16:38--> 01:16:55

And the rest of the family say no, how can we give them food? They just invaded our country, and they're making us leave our country? She said no. These are poor people who have been forced against their will to come and invaders. Let us go back and give them some food saga.

01:16:57--> 01:17:04

And so reluctantly, their driver, he turned back the car and they went and they gave them some food. Now guess what happened?

01:17:05--> 01:17:24

One of the Iraqi soldiers say to them, the direction we gave you is the wrong direction. In front of you, the whole journey has been filled with mice, you would not have gone very far, you would have been blown into pieces.

01:17:25--> 01:17:59

But since you came back and showed us your clean heart, we will show you that we too are human beings, we will direct you to the right direction which will take you to this early border. And the headings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the Messiah near the mouth off turkey Masada so when you do something good for the sake of Allah, it will keep evil away from you. Perhaps the setup that you give tonight, something bad is about to happen to you or your family. And this becomes a show for you.

01:18:01--> 01:18:04

We're asking you to give for the sake of a law's house.

01:18:06--> 01:18:07

Allah says in the Quran.

01:18:10--> 01:18:11

Allah to the

01:18:12--> 01:18:15

officer de la firming Camilla.

01:18:17--> 01:18:18

Woman Yep.

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

Yep.

01:18:21--> 01:18:22

For many of

01:18:24--> 01:18:51

our says, Here you are, you have been invited to give for the sake of Allah and some people are stingy, they hold back. And Allah says, Whosoever who is stingy. He is only holding back from himself. Today I need you to choose between two promises, the promise of Allah and the promise of Shiva. Which one do you want brothers and sisters? I need to hear

01:18:53--> 01:18:58

the promise of Allah then listen to the promise of Allah. The promise of Allah is

01:18:59--> 01:19:00

young.

01:19:02--> 01:19:04

And fit on

01:19:06--> 01:19:08

the head it is right there at the door.

01:19:09--> 01:19:18

Oh son of Adam, spend and I will spend on you. That is a promise of Allah. Now listen to the promise of

01:19:20--> 01:19:23

the promise of shavon shavon

01:19:27--> 01:19:59

shavon He promises you poverty. He says don't give. Why would you give to the extent that when people are collecting data for the machine, and the brother comes with a box and this brother he looks inside his pocket, and he wants to put something in the box and he looks inside his pocket? And he seems 50 and he says above obscene now on long Neverland. He looks again 20 of what he abandoned it will never happen.

01:20:01--> 01:20:15

He looks inside 1010 is too much. Eventually, he takes out $1. And he puts it in a box, like as if he's taking out his heart and putting it in the box.

01:20:19--> 01:20:28

This is so painful. I come from a country that is 70% Christians. Let me tell you this real life story.

01:20:30--> 01:20:31

In my local area,

01:20:33--> 01:20:42

there was a skirmish. There was an altercation between Muslims and Christians. And so the Christians burned down a Masjid.

01:20:43--> 01:20:47

And the Muslims in retaliation, they went and they burned down a church.

01:20:49--> 01:21:01

And so the Christians they gathered together, and they collected money. And within one year, they built a magnificent church worth 1 million US dollars.

01:21:03--> 01:21:08

The message that was burned down, they built a temporary structure made of food.

01:21:09--> 01:21:17

And guess what? The temporary messages is still the same, almost 10 years later.

01:21:20--> 01:21:27

In a HIPAA law, there is no religion on the face of this earth that has promised so much he wants to set that up more than Islam.

01:21:29--> 01:21:40

So I come back to you, my brothers and sisters, who will raise his hand for the sake of Allah and say that I pledge $1,000 for this mystery.

01:21:42--> 01:21:57

What is $1,000 that you give for the sake of Allah, raise your hand high so that we can see you brothers and sisters, what is 1000 today if you need to buy new furniture for your house, you will gladly spend more than $1,000

01:21:58--> 01:22:08

but this is your money, don't think that you're giving this money it will go to waste, this money is going to a special account and Allah will keep it in store for you.

01:22:10--> 01:22:25

One brother, he gave this example he say sadaqa listen to this sadaqa is like a box that has been covered. And every day you put something in this big box, every day you put something

01:22:26--> 01:22:48

and till one day, they decide to open this box and when the box has been opened Behold, the boxes filled up to the top, solder paste the same. You give here you give their you give here you give to the question you give to the cause. And then the old one.

01:22:50--> 01:22:58

When you are given your book of deeds and you open it and you see your sadaqa you wish that you would have given one
