Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My dearest brothers and sisters in Islam welcome to episode number 18 moments with the Quran. Today we are going to travel to sudo to calf and in particular the second famous story in order to have the story of the man with the two gardens. This is a man who Allah blessed with amazing wealth but Subhanallah this wealth became a test for him he had these amazing gardens with amazing fruits and this, these gardens were self irrigated. So panela without effort, wealth was pouring out of this particular garden, but sadly, it consumed his heart. And he became arrogant, and he experienced self amazement, he felt better than other people. And not

00:00:41--> 00:01:20

only that, he started this believing in the teachings of Allah subhanho wa Taala believing that the life of this world won't come to an end and if it did, that Allah will definitely give him gardens better than the gardens that he already had and was blessed with by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So basically, he forgot where these gardens came from, where all this wealth came from that it was from Allah subhanho wa Taala and instead of attributes, his success to Allah and His blessings to Allah subhanho wa Taala he was basically attribute it to himself. Now in the story. There's another man who was listening to the arrogance of this rich man and he brought him some perspective he said to

00:01:20--> 00:01:27

him, as Allah tells us in Surah two calf while Ola is dead, halter genetec Appleton

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

Allahu La quwata illa bill built

00:01:33--> 00:02:16

in terani and upon lemon carmello Allah Subhana Allah this man said to the rich man, if only when you entered your garden and saw what Allah has given you, what Allah has given you, if only you said Masha, Allah, Allah quwata illa Billah that this is what Allah has willed, there is no power, no mind except for Allah subhanho wa Taala If only you said that, right, but rather you see yourself or you see yourself better and you see me as lesser than you in wealth, and in children for the blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave you reminding him that where did you get your you know, these blessings from where did all these things come from? Now Subhana Allah in this

00:02:18--> 00:02:44

you know, effort to bring about perspective, right? To this rich man, we benefit a DA that we should recite as the scholars of Islam have taught us whenever Allah blesses us with wealth, and whenever we see that wealth and we are amazed by it, it's human nature to be amazed by certain things we say measure a lot luck with a label and this was a practice of many of our pious predecessors before us for example, remember bayhealth dimensions in his book as well as the fact

00:02:46--> 00:02:54

that one of the famous Football Hall of Medina the seven foot one of the famous four club was from the seventh of Medina at the time of the terrible him

00:02:55--> 00:02:56

or what

00:02:57--> 00:03:40

he used to say whenever he saw any of his wealth so panela that amazing measure luck with a level right so this was the practice of a very knowledgeable person, one of the seven folk of Medina at the time of the tabulation also interfere even though we had him him everybody behind him Rahim Allah He mentioned the report by Ziad Eben sack, which states that even she had a zuri and he was from the most prominent figures of the tablet, and scholars of the web. Whenever he saw wealth that amazed him he would say Masha Allah La quwata illa Billah. He also mentions a report that goes back to Alamo tarrif and in this report, he mentions that Mr. Malik Rahim Allah whenever he entered his

00:03:40--> 00:04:05

home, he would say Masha Allah Allah who was a leveler and then when someone asked him and said, Why do you say this? Oh, mmm. And the Imam or Mr. Malik said that have you not read in the Quran where Allah says Allah Allah is the halter genetic? Kuta Masha Allah La quwata illa Allah subhanaw taala. Also, there's a report by health event Mesa that goes back or that teaches us a practice by one of

00:04:07--> 00:04:47

the important features of the tablet in as well Hema hula Wahab even when a bay that he used to have a sign to Kamala on his door. So Pamela as a reminder towards praising Allah subhanho wa Taala and attributing the success of this amazing wealth that he has to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, Masha Allah La quwata illa Allah so we learn this amazing do our brothers and sisters in Islam that what the wealth that Allah has given us whenever we see it and it amazes us a Masha Allah level with a La Villa and Allah will protect it in sha Allah and increase it for us as Allah says in Surah Ibrahim lane Shackleton as he did know that if you are grateful I will increase for you and saying this is a

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

is a means of showing gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is a draft for the one who sees his own wealth is the owner and is amazed by it. What about if another party sees the

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

wealth of somebody else and they are amazed by it. Then in the hadith of abou mama robiola one, we learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us that whenever we see our brother or sister with something that amazes us we should make dua to Allah we should ask Allah to bless them with the wealth that Allah has given them a blessed them in that Allah has given them so we say, may Allah subhana wa Allah bless this car for you bless this home for you bless your child for you bless this job for you. We ask Allah subhana wa Italeri shelters to share our blessings and Baraka upon that thing which Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them so this is a duet that we should make whenever we

00:05:37--> 00:06:17

see someone who has something that amazes us and this will help us It helps us against becoming jealous. So panel line also inshallah it's a means of Allah subhanho wa Taala blessing us with that which we desire because whenever we ask Allah to bless others then Allah gives gives us an angel as we learn from the sooner who makes the same dua for us. And some people ask can I say Masha Allah La quwata illa Billah when I see somebody else's wealth, that pleases me, the scholars of Islam say yes, you can you should do both. Or you can do both rather, if you make dua for blessings is enough, but if you would like to say Masha Allah La quwata illa Allah and then make dua for Baraka, this is

00:06:17--> 00:06:41

fine as well. Why? Because no doubt in both these statements are meanings of goodness and meanings of hair. This is the lesson for today's moment. May Allah subhanahu Allah bless everything that he has given us and never ever make us arrogant and never ever make us forget to panela where everything we have came from, I mean, Europa and lemon until another moment salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
