If we want to understand how important it is to spend for the sake of Allah, and to part from our prized possessions for the sake of Allah, and give for the sake of Allah, then we must look at the prices that have been set. And when we look at these prizes, we can't help but see that Allah subhanahu Attallah teaches us that spending in the path of Allah helps develop your morals, helps develop your manners, helps develop your etiquettes for Allah subhanahu wa to Allah says in surah, Mohammed is 38 Here you are those invited to spend in the Cause of Allah. But amongst you are those who withhold out of greed, You're a greedy person. So this is a teaches us that from the rewards of

00:00:52--> 00:01:45

spending in the path of Allah is to attain for yourself, this character of being selfless, this character of not being greedy. This is the first gift. The second gift, my dear brothers and sisters, is that it is the greatest investment for a believer, right? We are always looking to grow our assets. We are always looking to grow our principal and Allah subhanahu Allah says in surah, two Hadith, the 18th Isaiah in Al Musa deity now almost saw the cards were uporabo la Pyroban, Hassan Yuga are Fula home while at home at Jurong Karim. Allah says indeed the men who practice charity and the women and the women who practice charity, and they have loaned Allah a goodly loan, meaning they

00:01:45--> 00:01:54

have spent it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah says it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a noble reward.

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

And if somebody asks, well, I want to know how much how much will it be multiplied?

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

entice me further. Well, then, we have in Surah Al Baqarah, I a number 261, Allah subhanho wa Taala saying, the example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed of grain, one seed of grain which you plant, which normally gives rise to one stem, but in this instance, it gives rise to seven stems, because you did it for the sake of Allah, and it doesn't end there. Allah says seven stems, seven stems, each stem carrying 100 seats 100 times seven equals 700. So your investment is multiplied. 700%. When you give for the sake of Allah, your one is multiplied. 700% And it doesn't end there for Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, Allah who you bought it for Lima

00:02:54--> 00:03:20

Yeshua, and Allah increases even further for him. He wills May Allah increase for us, I mean, the third prize for being a spender for the sake of Allah is that Allah says it's a means to earn Allah's mercy for Allah subhanho wa Taala in Surah to arrive is number 156 says where are met he was he at school he first October

Me say t come. Allah says, if you disclose your charitable expenditures and spend for the sake of Allah, they are good. But if you conceal them, and give them to the poor, it is better for you. Allah is telling us spend openly and it's better to spend in hiding and Allah subhanho wa Taala essays and Allah as a result will remove from you some of your misdeeds thereby and Allah with what you do is fully acquainted and all away

00:04:55--> 00:04:57

the fifth prize

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

spending in the past

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala is a means of gaining closeness to Allah. For Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book in Surah Toba I am number 99. But amongst the Bedouins are some who believe in Allah and the Last Day and consider what they spend as a means of nearness to Allah and obtaining the dua of the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is what why they do it. Allah says Unquestionably, it is a means of nearness for them. Allah will admit them to his mercy. And indeed Allah is the forgiving and the Merciful. And we know that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to make dua upon those who used to give for we know as in Sahih al Bukhari and Muslim he would

00:05:47--> 00:06:32

say Allahumma Salli, ala Abbey opha, Allahu Akbar, Allah sent blessings upon a be ofa, right So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would make this dua, also brothers and sisters from the prizes that are given to the one who spends his Allah increases the taqwa.

I mean, if that doesn't inspire us,

00:07:18--> 00:07:26

what will? What will? Allah subhanahu Allah says, In the fourth Jews in the first quarter,

00:07:27--> 00:07:31

nurse and they forgive other people, Allah who you should be Mycenaean and Allah loves those who do good. May Allah make us from the people of Jana, Amin, amin, my dear brothers and sisters, time has come to an end. I've mentioned for you all six prizes for the one who spends and perhaps one of these, each point in itself was magnanimous, perhaps just one point was enough to inspire us and shift our paradigms and correct our understanding, and perhaps places upon a standing of perspective. May Allah make us people have perspective. I mean, I ended up brothers and sisters was two points. The first point is a completion to the story. I started with

00:09:21--> 00:09:23

the story of Muhammad Mooney snaggy.

00:09:24--> 00:09:31

After he passed away, I saw him in a dream. And we were walking together

00:09:32--> 00:09:36

through all these charitable projects he had started when he was alive.

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

And he's asking me, tell me about this project. How is it running? Tell me about this project. How is it running? What's happening here? And I would say, I don't even know these are your projects. I'm telling him in this dream. I didn't even know these were your projects. And as we were walking along, we came across somebody, and this person introduced himself

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

And I introduced myself in my dream. I'm Sajid Omar, and he introduced himself as early unity. So I got a bit perplexed. I said, I know him as Muhammad nahi. How come he saying he's early unity?

00:10:15--> 00:10:18

So, I woke up, obviously,

00:10:19--> 00:10:37

and I never get dreams interpreted. But this dream, I thought I must. And I spoke to some of our Messiah in rehab. And they pointed me to a person who the scholar say is reputable. And he fears Allah in his dream interpretation. So I told him, this is the man and this is what happened.

00:10:38--> 00:10:41

So, this person said to me, glad tidings to you.

00:10:43--> 00:10:49

He said Glad Tidings to you. Because firstly, this is glad tidings from Allah upon you.

00:10:52--> 00:11:08

Because you've been making dua for this man, not so. I said, Yes, I have. He says Allah, this is glad time Allah has communicated with you through your dream. You've been making dua for this person. So Allah has shown you the reality of this person. And as for

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

these projects that you are walking through with this man,

00:11:14--> 00:12:01

it means that these projects are benefiting him where he is right now. Allahu Akbar. All the spending he did when he was alive is benefiting him right now. And as for him, calling himself early, you know D, when his name is Muhammad nadie. Then Allah says, In Abrar, Allah fie lien, that the righteous people are from the elevated of people, and early refers to the elevated so he is dining with their Ilene right now. This is glad tidings from Allah that you making dua for this man. Allah is telling you his placement after his pastor he Subhana Allah Allah, Allah He made my hair stand Allah He and He made my Eman grow. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us better lives than the

00:12:01--> 00:12:48

life he gave to Muhammad Yunus nadie make us more diligent than him in our spending and make us strive strive to work diligently in the footsteps of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my dear brothers when I pondered over this dream and its interpretation I couldn't help but remember the hadith of eyeshadow the Allah Who and her when she says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on read on read aloud her. He slotted cup Cheney and Mullah Haney of Quran he slotted two RAMs, white and black in color, which had horns. And after he slaughtered these two RAMs, he said to his wife, Aisha radiAllahu anha Oh, Ayesha, distribute the rams and he went away. So she happily started

00:12:48--> 00:13:08

distributing it. And she says after some time, he came back sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he asked me and said, Yeah, Asia, oh Asia, what remains? What remains? So she was so happy. She was so happy. She said oh prophet of Allah. Nothing remains except the shoulder.

00:13:10--> 00:13:56

Nothing remains in laxity for her nothing remains except the shoulder. He said to her sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Oh Aisha. Oh Asia. Don't say nothing remains except the shoulder. Say everything remains except the shoulder. La who say everything remains except the shoulder for what you gave for the sake of Allah truly remains and the show that we will eat and it will no longer remain. Allahu Akbar sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us riches, and make us rich and make us rich in a way that brings us closer to him and makes us spend in his path and alleviate difficulty. May Allah make us people who love to lift the difficulties of others. May Allah make a

00:13:56--> 00:14:37

selfless and not selfish. May Allah subhanahu wa taala gathers in Jannah with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions and all those who love to spend for the sake of Allah Amin era Bella al Amin, brothers and sisters, I love you all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala once again, Giacomo lo halen for you I tend to err it's been a great honor for me to be allowed to stand in front of you all and indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is most deserving of all praises. I asked Allah together as in this dunya together many, many times again. And I asked him together as underneath, he's out on the day of pm after that, the same way he gathered us here today. And I

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

asked him together as in for those who are alive as well. The same way he gathered us here today. I love you all for the sake of Allah, Allah He I do. I love you all for the sake of Allah. And I ended up by saying, everything correct said is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's perfect. And any mistakes from myself and shame upon and I seek Allah subhanho wa Taala has forgiven us how thou Allah Who I am

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