Sterling on a Sunday

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

early or Sufi in America, do Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu All praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala, our Creator, our sustainer our nourisher the only one worthy of worship is that he will gll Allah.

00:00:37--> 00:01:21

Allah I had unfavourable summit and levy limited when a new lead one of the akula hakuho and I had La ilaha illa Allah and peace and salutations be upon Mohammed Abdullah son de la vida, he was the one who said turn up to fecal matter intimus septum B he led Toby lugar de vida keytab Allah He was a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I leave you with two things. And if you hold steadfast upon them both, then you will never ever go astray. And these two things are the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the son of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are servants of Allah and no children of Adam. For the purposes of this video, I want to discuss with you a way that we

00:01:21--> 00:02:13

can worship Allah subhanho wa Taala with a way that is not through physical actions. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala has prescribed for us his worship through different means. So we can worship Allah subhanho wa Taala using our bodies such as when we observe the surah so this is worshiping Allah subhana wa Taala through physical ability, then we can worship Allah subhanho wa Taala through financial ways, such as when we pay out our Zakah or when we give out in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala in a voluntary way, then we can also worship Allah subhanho wa Taala in a conjoined way, in that we worship Allah subhana wa Taala through both physical meaning bodily and financial ways, such

00:02:13--> 00:02:44

as during the time of hedge, right, hedge requires spending, and it also requires physical ability. I want to bring your attention via all to the importance of spending our wealth in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah subhanho wa Taala has encouraged this in many places in his book, and has taught us that the rewards for this upgrade, spending in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala is a great way to ensure we build our agenda in an amazing way.

00:02:46--> 00:03:29

We have to understand or servants of a line or children of Adam, that this wealth that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us it's not our wealth, it belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala this time that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us it's not our time, in reality it is it belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala and many of us have a concept today, whereby when we spend in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala we say we have sacrificed, sacrifice your wealth in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala sacrifice your time and go out in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala go out and study etc We use this word sacrifice, but in reality are servants of Allah and our children of Adam. When we

00:03:29--> 00:04:07

spend, we are not sacrificing, we are investing. We have to change this concept and usage of the word sacrifice and replace it with the word investment. Because this is what it is in reality. We can only sacrifice that which we own. We do not own this wealth for servants of Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in his book in our hashtag hasta la Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala has purchased Mina mina fusa home from the believers they livelihood, their life

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

and their wealth, bn Allah

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

because for them, is generally

00:04:19--> 00:04:59

contemplate over this vessel servants of Allah. Allah subhana wa tada makes manifest that he is the owner of our wealth and our time, but His Divine Mercy dictated that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah gave us back this time and this wealth for us to use as he commanded us to. Thus we will be answerable with regards to how we spent this wealth and how we use this time when we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala and on the day of Terra, Nova subhanho wa Taala makers from the people of Jelena when we meet our Creator on the day of gamma me, so this wealth and this time is not owned by us. We can only say

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

defies that which we own. If I gave you an amount of money to keep for me, and I found you a week later, and I asked you to take that money and give it to Mohammed for example, and you went to Mohammed and you passed on this amount, do you have the right to say I have sacrificed this amount of giving it to Mohammed? No, you don't. Because you do not own that wealth. understand from this or servants of Allah, that it is not sacrifice, it is investment. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us gender and he's taken ownership of our material well being in financial standing, understand this, Allah subhana wa Jalla makes this point even more clearer in another verse in the Quran, in the

00:05:43--> 00:06:36

third Jews, Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us towards spending in his path and Allah subhana wa tada says, and fuchal spend from what mimma rasa Polina come spend from that which we have provided you, that in which we have provided you This makes it so clear for us are servants of Allah if we only pondered that this wealth is the hours It is Allah subhanahu wa Tanis and when we fail to spend this wealth and invest it in the way that Allah subhana wa tada has asked us and commanded us to then we are sacrificing something. We are sacrificing our agenda. We are sacrificing our paradise. We are sacrificing a Jelena from being the best that it can be. If we were to follow the commands of

00:06:36--> 00:07:21

Allah subhanho wa Taala and know and understand are servants of Allah, that our spending does not increase the majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala in any way, our worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala does not increase his majesty, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah is that he will Joanne Allah He will have whether you worship Him and whether you don't worship Him, whether you spend in his path, and whether you don't spend in his path and know and understand that when you spend in his path. You benefit when we spend in his path, we benefit La ilaha illAllah La ilaha illa Allah and that is why I called it an investment for Allah subhanho wa Taala promises to increase our spending for us 700

00:07:21--> 00:07:45

times our spending is a 700% investment La ilaha illa Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, after explaining to us the 700% concept on La who you will go to Evo Lima Yeshua, that Allah subhanho wa Taala increases for whom He wills Allah subhanho wa Taala is not confined to a 700% increment that we were for us a must

00:07:46--> 00:08:27

increase for us even more. So understand this oh servants of Allah, it is not sacrifice, it is investment and in your investment is the building of your agenda and making it the best that it can be. with that. I will leave you all with these factors and thoughts to ponder over. And I will end this with our normal tagline for this Ramadan. And that tagline is a Muslim is an entity of activeness and proactivity What are you doing? Oh servant of Allah, for Islam, and the Muslims for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala how they will love them. I love you all for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
