I welcome you all to Episode 18 Season Two blast from the past live from messy drama in damansara. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Should I add anything else?

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

Mashallah.

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

Mashallah

00:01:02--> 00:01:08

the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala was always a pleasant place for the children. It's okay let them let them enjoy.

00:01:11--> 00:01:55

My dear brothers and sisters in yesterday's episode, we were learning about a great Sahabi companion and his name was Musa even, or mayor, Ravi Allah. And before that we were discussing matters pertaining to the first pledge in Islam, or the pledge or the first pledge that took place at Alibaba. And today inshallah we want to go into those lessons but just completing because you remember yesterday I got a red card from Brother Raja we are doing so they were just there was a completion to our discussion to Mousavi been or may not be a loved one with regards to this companion. As we said, you know, he had a similar incident in Medina that Rasulullah sallallahu

00:01:55--> 00:02:01

alayhi wasallam had in Mecca, where a person by the name of Hussain

00:02:02--> 00:02:08

a senior right from year three, he wanted to assassinate

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

Mr. Ahmed wanted to put an end to this. Because it was

00:02:17--> 00:02:23

as we would say, you know, contagious the Dow was contagious, people were entering into Islam, and we're going to discuss

00:02:24--> 00:03:05

a lesson from this because we know that in the previous year, the six that went back, they only managed to bring six more. Right. But again, this doesn't mean that only six except that Islam. But we know that six came for hydromorphone, and not everyone goes for hygiene ombre all the time. So Allahu Allah, but no doubt after Musab even our mayor, situated himself in Medina, the dour began to spread at a rapid pace. So he he faced an assassination attempt. But he walked in the footsteps of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, he was calm, he was cool. He was collected, you welcome this, say, into his place. And he could see that this person had a motive. But he said to him that before

00:03:05--> 00:03:24

you do what you intend to do, at least let's have this discussion. And this is where we stopped yesterday. And this essay ended up accepting Islam and going back to his people, and telling them that now I'm upon the way of this man. Because indeed, what he says has to be the truth. And there's goodness in it. And from this, the Giants such as

00:03:26--> 00:03:55

the man who when he passed away the ouster of Allah shook, he accepts Islam. Honestly, if I didn't tell you anything about Muslim women or men, but I only told you that one person accepted Islam on his hands, who was so amazing that when he died, the throne of Allah shook This is enough for us to understand how amazing Musab even was, right? But we have all the other great mentions and then from the acceptance of sad even more if

00:03:56--> 00:04:25

the entire Bible actually accepted Islam, the sub tribe, or subset of the house, they accepted Islam overnight women and men Mashallah to Baraka law. And then we have another senior from the Hassan known as Rebecca another giant in the Sierra a name that we all should be knowing he accepts Islam. And as we said, then the first Juma takes place in Islam, and who was the Imam, this Musab rebel.

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

Amen.

00:04:28--> 00:04:59

Amen. Amen. He was the Imam of this Juma and it happened with the presence of 40 people 40 people and that's why some of the scholars they took this understanding that the minimum number that should be present when offered Juma are to be considered correct is 40. They took it from this incident because the first Joomla in Islam had 40 people, but this is not the correct view. Because 40 people happen to be there. It wasn't that they were waiting for 40 people

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

For the Joomla to happen, it was that the first Joomla happened. And from the knowledge of the Joomla, we know that 14 people were there. And the person who hosted this Joomla was one of the people that I told you to remember his name from the previous year, those six that went to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and took the Shahada. He this person was the host of Musab even omein. And it was in his house that this Juma took place. So my dear brothers and sisters, this is a great for opening for the Muslims and remember we talking about tying the dogs to the hegira tying the dots to the hegira time that was the age that this opening is a great opening for the

00:05:41--> 00:05:44

Muslims now because Medina has

00:05:46--> 00:06:21

become sensitive to the message of Islam and accepting to the message of Islam. All of a sudden it's become a conducive region to receive the Muslims to receive Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Okay, so what do we learn in terms of lessons? Well, let's go through them quickly. I Subhanallah I was just sitting and and tapping lessons, some from my pondering some from the ponderings of the great scholars that woke the face of this earth, Masha, Allah, Allah Subhana Allah, we pass 10 we pass 12 we pass 14 lessons, Allah knows how long we will need just to go through the lessons, but I'll try and go through them

00:06:23--> 00:06:55

at a jogging pace in Sharla at a jogging pace, right, we won't sprint in the long run, but we will try and jog. The first lesson, my dear brothers and sisters is the lesson of knowledge. And the importance of knowledge. And knowledge is the prerequisite to any action. Right? And we just we discussed this. In previous episodes, I'm not going to expand on it too much. It was also a big feature. In terms of season one of blast from the past. The lesson that we gained in this lesson of knowledge, where do we learn it from? Well, if we recall,

00:06:56--> 00:07:33

or if I didn't mention that I mentioned you get now those six that met Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and accepted Islam. When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned who he was v six, you know, as if they turned to each other. And they said, You know what, you know, the Jews in Medina, they've been talking about this coming prophet. So there was some background knowledge in their minds, it was somewhere in the back of their mind that you know what it is plausible that there will be a prophet because we've been hearing this with these Jews. Remember, we said that there were there were three tribes of the Jews settled in year three, right? So through trade,

00:07:33--> 00:08:16

through covenants, and so on and so forth. There was communication, there was interaction. So from these Jews would mention, they would mention these things. So it was, which means that these people coming from Medina, these people coming from Medina, they had some background, they had some something, some knowledge about a prophet. It wasn't like the way it was, it was this great mighty impact in shock. From the outset. When they heard this message, they turn into each other and they say, You know what? We were told about this by the Jews. So can you see so Pamela, how knowledge helps you? Even if it's a little bit of knowledge, it's a little bit of knowledge, but Subhanallah

00:08:16--> 00:08:48

it can develop at an instant, that Subhanallah you can you have a seed, you water that seed, like what when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke to them? That is a seed voted right? immediately that seed sprouted. But where was the seed planted? Through these interactions between the hours of the hustle Raj and the Jews that were situated there? Right. And this again, shows the different dynamic to yesterday from Makkah. Now SubhanAllah. Another lesson that we learned, my dear brothers and sisters, is that you can have knowledge, but sometimes that knowledge doesn't benefit.

00:08:49--> 00:09:01

From this discussion, we learn it. Why? Because the Jews have told these people that I will send the message that there's a there's a prophet, or told them about a prophet. But did this benefit the Jews?

00:09:02--> 00:09:17

For those who have some backgrounds with the Sierra, did this benefit the Jews? Even though they had knowledge of a prophet? When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam went to Medina do we see them coming and accepting Islam in a wholesale? No, but they have the initial knowledge.

00:09:18--> 00:09:56

Which means what my dear brothers and sisters, we need to make dua to Allah, we need to turn to Allah and ask Allah not only to give us knowledge and bless us with good knowledge, but also to bless us with knowledge that we benefit from. Right now you see how we learn from this, how to improve our drive. This is something so many years ago, but today we learn a lesson. And that is how to make a better tool. In our drive. We ask Allah to give us beneficial knowledge, and also to make that knowledge benefited us. Don't just say give me beneficial knowledge because as you can see, Allah gave a people beneficial knowledge, but the knowledge didn't benefit them.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

So Pamela

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

May Allah protect us. I mean, the next lesson we learned, my dear brothers and sisters is that environments, broaden our horizons

00:10:08--> 00:10:14

environments, broaden our horizons. And let me also say restrict our horizons. Right?

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

The presence of the Jews

00:10:18--> 00:11:02

in this place in year three, broaden the understanding of the house in the house, are we following on lessons? Because if it wasn't for them, the house in the Hassan's would not have had any background knowledge or any statement by the way of a profit or anything about a profit or the or anything about a profit coming. Right. So when you interact when you mix what happens, your horizons, broaden your horizons broaden. Right? It wasn't like thought if Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to five. What happened? What What did one of the leaders they say? Do you remember? He said, No one other than you found Allah. You said you're a prophet. So what no one other than you

00:11:02--> 00:11:43

found Allah see no broad, no broad horizons. So it was the mercy from Allah that these Jews were in this area. And they planted this message, by the way, in is in a scenario and setting that had no value. It wasn't as if they were discussing anything. It seemed to be a passing by statement. But look how it broaden the horizons of the house in the hustle edge that, that they were receptive to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Yes, I'm not saying that there weren't any issues, but they were much more susceptible than the correction. And they were much more susceptible than the people of time. Right? broaden horizons. And that is why my dear brothers and sisters, you should

00:11:43--> 00:12:24

travel. You should mix with different cultures. You should learn different cultures understand different cultures, different mentalities. It broadens your horizons. And with a broad horizon, you become better in your data. Because you strategize better, you you know, you can, you can present Islam in so many different ways, depending on the setting of the people that you introducing it to, you strategize better, because, you know, these are people that are susceptible and susceptible to this kind of approach. But these people, this other approach was better with these people. If you joke, it's offensive happens, right? Some aspect, you know, sometimes you come from a place where

00:12:24--> 00:12:57

joking is fine, then you go to another place where people are more reserved, and you start joking around, people look at you and say this is very bad manners. Right? You've only shot yourself in the foot, right? Because now you've portrayed yourself as a person of bad manners. People don't want to listen to you. And remember, we said people see you before they hear you. Because the speed of light is faster than the speed of sound. So by you mixing with people understanding different cultures traveling, it broadens your horizons to understand the do's and the don'ts when you travel from place to place, or the do's and the don'ts with regards to a certain people and that makes you even

00:12:57--> 00:13:23

more able in inviting towards Allah subhanho wa Taala we lend this will not grant us the understanding. I mean, another lesson lesson number three, everything has a time and a place. And Allah is all wise. Why am I saying this lesson? Well, someone might say that why didn't Allah subhanho wa Taala make us a means for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before? Why gets Why leave him to get stoned?

00:13:25--> 00:13:48

Why leave him to face the boy What? Why not? You know why didn't this opening come earlier? Why didn't we have these people from year three barely who met him the six. Someone might say that. Allah is always remember I told you that the Hassan they were in this was this was as the scholars of Sierra say they were fighting with each other for 120 years.

00:13:50--> 00:13:52

And in these fightings

00:13:53--> 00:14:01

many elders were killed. Many elders were killed. And we know how difficult it is to work with the elders.

00:14:02--> 00:14:03

It's difficult

00:14:04--> 00:14:17

to work with the elders is much more difficult than to work with the youth. The youth, you can teach them new things. They've been on earth only a few years. The elders know long time it's like cement and concrete mix too hard to crack.

00:14:19--> 00:14:23

to crack. So is the wisdom of Allah then most of the seniors passed away.

00:14:25--> 00:14:59

which created a better setting for Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam to come. Had he gone with the seniors there, the situation probably would have been like with the parish Roadblock, right? Because too many senior minds stuck on the way of the past and our forefathers and and and and and and then it would have been a waste. So lines on wise, a lot chose this to happen when the influential seniors are no more in the picture. And now we have the upcoming youth who are saying Hold on guys. Hold on. We

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

We need to stop fighting.

00:15:01--> 00:15:30

We need a leader. But who is the leader going to be from ours? Cuz Raj will say no, no, no, no, no, no, no, from Hassan. Also say no, no, no, no, absolutely not. We need an independent. You see, the younger generation is thinking proactive thinking, we better sort ourselves out before the Jews beat us in trade. They beat us in education, they beat us in the establishment, we have to stop this fighting. Let bygones be bygones let the weight of the forefathers become, quote, unquote, harassed.

00:15:33--> 00:15:48

So the setting was right. Everything has a time in place. It was Allah as divine wisdom, that everything was delayed to the 11th. He after he, it made everything even more conducive for the spread of Islam, and the eventual, the eventual hegira.

00:15:50--> 00:16:14

May Allah grant us the understanding. I mean, this is understanding from the Sierra, you see the Sierra walking with us today. So Panama, lesson number four. And from this, we learned this from lesson number three, we learned lesson number four was lesson number four, focus on the youth focus on the youth. If you want to create change, focus on the youth

00:16:16--> 00:16:39

let me not say focus on the youth but rather let me say do not close the door to the youth that are should be to the elders that are should be to the males that are or should be to the females. But don't let your dad be in such a way that you have closed the door to the youth or you have sanctioned very little resources for the youth learn from this My dear brothers and sisters

00:16:40--> 00:17:21

because as you can see here, that there are cases when you know there are cases in which if you work with the youth quantum change happens. Quantum change happens and I'm very proud of the message that I have that is housing me for the month of Ramadan, Masha Allah you know I'm learning about the machines efforts towards the youth. We have Allah bless vestido Rama Ameen and those supporting it mean and those standing by it. I mean, we Allah bless you all Allah Hi, this this vision that I'm seeing this love to bring the young to the masjid right revolutionary ideas Mashallah to bring the youth to the masjid This is strategy Mashallah I've been discussing with Brother Raja Deen have with

00:17:21--> 00:17:53

Allah May Allah preserve him in his obedience. I mean, and I've been this is good strategy where we say look, some of the youth right now they don't want to come to lectures, let's create a new way to bring them into the house. And that's why earlier I said let the kids play upstairs. Yes, the screaming doesn't matter. Let the camera also know and the audience behind the camera know that we have children running around here. A lot of the time we run the machine in such a way that we make it exclusive. It's only for old people and this is incorrect. I shall have the Allahu Allah says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to shield me he was like my screen, and I should

00:17:53--> 00:18:01

tiptoe over your shoulder. And what's the amazonians play with this? He has invested in the boys locker is the playground also. This is the

00:18:02--> 00:18:06

place of Baraka. You want to have your kids playing here. They are surrounded by angels.

00:18:08--> 00:18:10

They are surrounded by angels with

00:18:11--> 00:18:46

me Allah protect our children from from all ill and all evils, especially the evil of the evil eye and jinn. And see her and magic mean, narrow to be Kelly Mattila. hytera metaline Sheree mahalo, we ask Allah to protect us from all evil. I mean, so my dear brothers and sisters, make sure when you strategize in your data, there is a good healthy portion of your resources going towards bringing the youth to the masjid because they will get all the loving the masjid and they will teach their children about the masjid and you would have instigated generations to grow up in the masjid.

00:18:47--> 00:18:53

When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to Medina, the first thing he did was establish the masjid.

00:18:54--> 00:19:04

Don't belittle the masjid. This is the place of Baraka decisions here are blessing decisions. Sure, in this place of blessing blessing Shura,

00:19:05--> 00:19:44

yo yo, the recitation of the Quran here is blessing. Yes, the prime is blessing in of itself. But during the masjid, even more blesses, teach your children this, bring them here and allow them to have that first half, allow them to have those moments of happiness and excitement in the house of Allah. That's what it is the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is from being just my dear brothers and sisters. And if we can't be just within the house of Allah, and where do we want to practice justice in this house that doesn't recognize your financial standing your material well being the color of your skin, the type of your blood, everybody stands in the same line? In this

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

lesson, if we want to make it exclusive and inclusive and so on and so forth. Then we are we going to practice justice on earth? If you can't do it in the house of Allah, where do you think you're going to practice it? We are not granted the understanding. I mean, so my dear brothers and sisters strategize carefully

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

To date on the youth, may Allah grant us the understanding. I mean, lesson number five.

00:20:06--> 00:20:10

Help comes from sources you sometimes never ever imagined.

00:20:11--> 00:20:15

You know, sometimes you see someone in society you think No, this person will never help.

00:20:16--> 00:20:28

You know, I'll never get a donation from that person. That person has no interest, and Subhanallah they are your biggest supporters, and your biggest donors, your biggest finances your biggest the people who make the best.

00:20:30--> 00:20:50

Help comes from places you never imagined. How do we know this? How do we know this? Think of the events of Alibaba. Think of the events of Alibaba been speaking to you about? I think that speaks loud in and of itself. I don't have to share anymore. You got people from Medina coming to accept Islam six?

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

Who would have thought this that the help would come all the way from yesterday?

00:20:56--> 00:21:43

Who would have thought this? Right? So help comes to us from places we never imagined. Never closed the door to anything in any opportunity. Right? And never say this is beyond consideration. Now everything is open to consideration. Help comes from places you would never imagine. Number six. The lesson we learn from this Alibaba or the story of Alibaba and this first pledge is that Islam brings together the hearts Islam brings together the hearts Yes, this house and hazards we're fighting for how long? My dear brothers and sisters 120 years? What's brought them together? What made them the answer we talk about the answer. The Prophet love the answer. The Prophet makes to ask for the

00:21:43--> 00:21:48

answer. Allah mentions the answer The answer who the hours and the Hassan.

00:21:49--> 00:21:51

Predominantly these are the answers.

00:21:55--> 00:22:48

From disunity, fighting, killing, warfare, you surfing to becoming the answer. What happened? What was the fundamental shift that created this Islam? Islam happens. You see, Islam creates a burn far stronger than blood. It doesn't differentiate us based on tribe based on lineage based on blood. It's far stronger than blood. It brings us together based on belief, based on the declaration of Allah being one, and acceptance of the prophecy of Mohammed, Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Islam brings us together. It doesn't bring us together upon the color of our skin. It doesn't bring us together upon the nature of our wealth, and the price of our home and the area of our

00:22:48--> 00:22:54

neighborhood. No, no, my dear brothers and sisters, it doesn't bring us together based on

00:22:55--> 00:23:04

our lineage. And as Allah says, In the end, we created human Daiquiri monster from a male and a female what your anakim and we made us your own

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

tribes, and sub tribes.

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

Why?

00:23:11--> 00:23:16

groups and tribes Why? So that you can see I'm better than him. And she's better than her.

00:23:17--> 00:23:19

And my color is better than your color.

00:23:20--> 00:23:42

And my facial features is better than yours. Now, Allah says Lita are awful, so that you can recognize each other. And I remember saying this in Australia, and the brothers and sisters were laughing last year in season one. I was saying imagine brothers and sisters. Imagine, imagine if everyone looked the same. Same skin color, same language, same tongue, same everything.

00:23:43--> 00:23:47

Imagine if we were all exactly the same. How boring would life be?

00:23:49--> 00:23:54

I mean, you don't need a mirror. Just walk out and look at the next person. Look at him. Yeah, okay. That's how I look. Okay, I know.

00:23:55--> 00:24:12

You don't need a mirror. Everyone looks the same. Everyone speaks the same. Everyone has the same language, same pronunciations, life would be boring. This dynamic nature that Allah has created us with. It makes life interesting. Like marriage. Imagine how boring marriage would be. You tell you why.

00:24:13--> 00:24:18

I'm taking you out to eat guess because you don't need to tell me to guess I already know because we bought the same.

00:24:21--> 00:24:23

We bought the same. What are you thinking? I'm already thinking?

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

Did you say oh, what I already know what you're going to order at the restaurant is all the same. We will eat the same food. Imagine how our discussions would be. We want boring life I tell you.

00:24:36--> 00:25:00

So it's amazing from Allah that He made us different to recognize each other. Islam brings us together. Islam tells us not to recognize the rich from the poor. If a rich man knocks your door at two in the morning, greet him well and wonderfully. If a poor man knocks your door and he's a Muslim at two o'clock in the morning, greet him well and properly, like you would greet the rich man. He's a Muslim. He has

00:25:00--> 00:25:12

Declare Allah as one. And if the non Muslim knocks you do at two o'clock in the morning, greet him with a flock of Islam and invite him to Allah subhanho wa Taala. That might be gender knocking on your door. Would you say who they

00:25:13--> 00:25:17

are? No, it's a poor man. You know, you tell your son tell him I'm not here.

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

You know that statement? Tell him I'm not here. And some of us are very clever sons. So my daddy said, I should tell you he's not here.

00:25:28--> 00:25:57

Then you become exposed. May Allah protect lesson number seven brothers and sisters invite to tawheed first, and we discussed this in previous lessons. Where do we learn this from from this pledge of Alibaba? From the pledge itself? What was the first thing or the first content or the first citation in that pledge? That no one associates partners unto Allah, no one associates partners with Allah This is so he This is La Ilaha Illa.

00:25:58--> 00:26:21

You see, the best thing you can do is invite to Tokyo never belittle this, my dear brothers and sisters, you might think let me invite him to good character as I told you, that's good. But what's great is inviting him to one Allah. Because good character only matters after one allies acceptance. Remember this My dear brothers and sisters, lesson number eight, law.

00:26:22--> 00:26:23

Eight is great.

00:26:25--> 00:26:29

The legacy of prophethood is passed to an Ummah not to a man.

00:26:32--> 00:27:14

I said this to you before. Where do we learn this from from Alaska and this pledge from the fact that these six went to Medina and all together started preaching Islam to their families, all of them Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't say, I'm making one person, my representative, because this is an hour based on one person and that is we know, Allah was teaching them that after me there's no profit, and the legacy of prophethood is not passed to one man. It's passed to an entire ummah. So before Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away. He's training the Ummah all together to do that. He's allowing them in his lifetime. It wasn't that he didn't allow them.

00:27:14--> 00:27:50

Then he passed away, and then people were stuck. Nope. He was an amazing leader from the Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He was an amazing teacher, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was an amazing visionary sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was setting the scene long before he passed away. He was training people that there's no prophet after me, you take from me all together, and you invite to what you know, this legacy is not going to one man is going to an entire Ummah, and oma that Allah has declared the best of all nations, because they all together carry the legacy of lubu wa, have profited.

00:27:52--> 00:27:54

So we learned this, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:27:56--> 00:28:07

we also learned my dear brothers and sisters, lesson number nine. And that lesson teaches us that influence happens quicker, normally, in our sphere of influence.

00:28:08--> 00:28:09

Where do we learn this from?

00:28:11--> 00:28:26

Should I announce the price when you want to can answer that I want you guys to think also that tomorrow when you after I leave, and you start reading the Sierra, you read through the lines, you start thinking, analyze, how does this matter to me today? How does it matter to my community today?

00:28:27--> 00:28:40

You see, we learned this, let me make it easy for you. Because I know it was a long time ago that we discussed it a whole fast, you know, faster, go fasting makes dainty two days because you're not eating, isn't it?

00:28:42--> 00:29:18

We learned this My dear brothers and sisters from the house and the husband. How many people came the second year for this pledge? 12 people? How many were from the Hassan 10. Two were from the hours the year before those six that came to take the Shahada. Which type Are they from the Hassan? Hassan, you see, so six from the Hassan. So naturally, naturally, the following year, there was a greater number from the Hassan because the ability to propagate to the husband had more weight, right and more penetration.

00:29:20--> 00:29:59

Because these six were from the hustle hustle, Raj, their tribe was within their sphere of influence, they could influence them more. Does that make sense? Right. So always remember that when you have a message, when you have a message, your greatest influence is going to happen insha Allah with your sphere of influence, and that is why even Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When he came with this data, he was told what MD Rashi erotica Krabi he was commanded to propagate it to his close ones first, and in English. We say charity begins at home. And we know that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam propagated to who to Khadija closest to him to Riley. He was growing up

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

in his

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

How sallallahu alayhi wa sallam right? That that was happening within the Quran wasn't going out the closest ones first, then that that was spread to all the Arab tribes, right? Because that's your sphere of influence. That's where you probably going to get the best results. And this takes us back to the lesson of strategizing. Right? So charity begins at home, when you want to do our start with your children. Start with your wives. Start with your husbands. Yes, sisters, husbands, your sisters have charms, isn't it? sisters have charms they charm their husbands? Right? They make the wrap around the finger, sometimes the husband will not do something. But if the wife handles it can get

00:30:43--> 00:31:10

the husband to do it. They know what food he likes. You know, maybe if I put an extra teaspoon of sugar is going to get even sweeter. Right? So for our sisters, use your chance. hamdulillah. Right, you can influence your husbands into donating to the Dawa, and supporting that our supporting orphans Masha Allah supporting the spread of You don't have to be a big chef to spread it in. You can be a great businessman to spread.

00:31:11--> 00:31:18

But you use your money to support the desire to establish schools, the hamdulillah and you spread there in this way when

00:31:20--> 00:32:02

we have the understanding. I mean, I'm not sure if I said it in the Sierra. But we've been having a lot of team discussions. And on my website, I have a little piece that Allah blessed with right once www.sedar.com if you go to it and you visit, or you type in the search box, I have a dream. Go and read that article, my dear brothers and sisters. It's something that Allah inspired me to write. And in one of the paragraphs I write about my dream to see 1000 billion 1000 billionaires 1000 billionaires. I'm not sure if I told you this in the Sierra class. But I know I said it to the sisters, and I've been saying it to the youth in our data in the programs in the day. And you know,

00:32:02--> 00:32:12

I was actually inspired to this by the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Prime Minister Mahathir I believe this was his vision to see 1000 billionaires in Malaysia.

00:32:13--> 00:32:19

Right. And I believe that that happened, it was close to happening, but sadly, very few Muslims.

00:32:20--> 00:32:53

Right? We need to be the best because Allah gave us the best profit and said, this is the best online. Yes, encourage your children to become rich. There's nothing wrong in it. But tell them and teach them that keep your money in your hands and not in your hearts. only keep alive in your hands. become very rich. But keep the money in your hands. Teach your children this encourage them. The oma needs people who will bankrupt the devil for the next generations to come. This is great. Our My dear brothers and sisters, we know from the Sahaba

00:32:55--> 00:33:40

who lines up 1000 camels laden food loaded with food and produce an aid for the Muslims. We need Muslims who are bankrolled that are like this, and they don't want anything except rewards from Allah subhanho wa Taala My dear brothers and sisters hamdulillah we've managed to take nine points. Perhaps we'll come tomorrow and take another night. Yes, yes from this pledge. We have so many more lessons to discuss. We Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding bless us all and bless these words. I believe here in Malaysia now we're entering the last 10 nights of Ramadan. My dear brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tightened his belt during these last

00:33:40--> 00:34:14

10 nights, woke up his families. There's no time to even lift up your pants. It shouldn't go down tighten it so you don't have to fidget with it. You have to be focused on worshipping Allah for worshiping Allah. Right these 10 nights, even your families are not that important. What's more important is these 10 nights and catching the laser cutter. This is what we let the Prophet tighten his belt and he woke up his families. So let's pull out the stops My dear brothers and sisters if you need to eat less, eat less. If you need to sleep less, sleep less. It's only for 10 days after eat, sleep.

00:34:15--> 00:34:22

I love you for the sake of Allah wa sallahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
