00:05:21--> 00:05:57

In serve Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon the nun can misguide him. And whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees misguidance upon, the nun can guide him, and peace and salutations be upon the final messenger, Muhammad Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the one who said and Yagna Adam Yun for colic, the one who said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spend, Oh son of Adam, and you will be spent upon

00:05:58--> 00:06:07

my dear brothers and sisters, ask Allah subhanho wa Taala from the outset of our time together, to grant us all sincerity.

00:06:08--> 00:06:37

To make our attendance solely for his sake alone, to make us those that hear a good word and follows it and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to inspire us with practice, and ability to practice upon all beneficial matches learned until the day of the AMA, I mean, Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon all Eva, my dear brothers and sisters.

00:06:39--> 00:06:46

To start off our topic, I want to share with you a story I shared with your brothers and sisters in the UK

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

some time ago.

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

The story

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

relates to

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

a wonderful person,

00:06:59--> 00:07:15

a man that Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed with wealth, and the man that migrated to a country known as Malawi many, many years ago, this person was a unique person.

00:07:16--> 00:07:39

He was a very unique person. In fact, it is said that Islam was revived in this country of Malawi, after Allah subhanho wa Taala because of this person, his name was Mohammed Mooney. Nadie. This servant of Allah was unique in that

00:07:40--> 00:08:35

the more Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him the more he gave for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In fact, he is one person that I've witnessed that if there was any charitable program going on in the community, and the people running this program did not approach him for a donation, he would be visibly upset, visibly upset not with them, but at the fact that Subhanallah he wasn't inspired to play a hand of good in this good that was taking place upon a line. And I've visibly witnessed him asking himself that What sin did I do that Allah subhanho wa Taala has blocked my participation in this good Subhanallah What an amazing person. He was. This person, my dear brothers and sisters

00:08:35--> 00:08:44

passed away. Early in 2011. He passed away suddenly. And after he passed away,

00:08:45--> 00:09:41

as I said, the impact he had on this country was amazing. It was amazing that we can say the country came to a stop, it came to a stop. And a document was published citing the good spending, and the good acts of this person. And by Allah, the work he was involved in, was far greater than the worker Avenue. Allahu Akbar. He was a man who did and spent the more Allah gave him but he did it so secretly that no one even knew of where his hand was involved in. I promise you this document listed many massages that were built by this man. Many modalities and schools that were built by this man, many institutes dedicated towards looking after New Muslims, was built by this man. Many of the

00:09:41--> 00:10:00

orphans in this country, Malawi, as well as other countries were sponsored in terms of the education and they were sent abroad to study in some of the most amazing universities overseas. And he was financing the education so panela all this came

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

To light people stories started coming out, messages were going up on forums, websites were receiving messages about the impact this man had to play in their lives. So panela so Pamela, may Allah make us people like these. And may Allah gather us with those who spent sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Jana, I mean, I mean, he indeed, was a man, my dear brothers and sisters, who loved to play a part in easing the difficulties of others. And, as I think of this man, I cannot help but think of a greater man,

00:10:42--> 00:10:49

a greater man, the best man who walked the face of this earth, Muhammad Ali Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

and his selflessness

00:10:54--> 00:11:05

and his love for making other people's problems, his problem, and his love to strive in easing their affairs.

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

And as I think of this, I remember a hadith in Sahih Muslim.

00:11:10--> 00:12:02

A Hadith by Jerry repin, Abdullah robiola, and Jerry bin Abdullah robiola, who says that once a delegation from mother came to visit the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam saw these guests coming, his entire face changed, his entire body language changed, he became visibly bothered. He became visibly bothered why, because this delegation was an impoverished delegation. They were people who lacked financial standing, and lack material well being. They were people who were poor. And when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam saw the poverty immediately his face changed his whole body language changed. This is what his

00:12:02--> 00:12:49

companion is saying. Because he was selfless are servants of Allah, and our children of Adam. He was selfless. He was all about making your problem his problem. He wasn't selfish. He wasn't the one who left your problem to be your problem as long as it doesn't concern me and my wife and my children, and if we generous my parents then it doesn't concern me today. So panela some of us don't even worry about the concerns of our parents and their needs. Allah homestand we hear about Muslims looking for old age homes, to place their parents in Allah protect us or May Allah protect us all. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was big, in striving to ease the affairs of his fellow

00:12:49--> 00:13:39

brothers and sisters. And when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam saw this delegation, he immediately engaged the member and he ascended the member. And he called out to the Muslims. He called out to the people and he commanded them to be charitable, and he commanded them to give sadaqa sadaqa from the gold coins and sadaqa from their silver coins and sadaqa from the wheat and sada from the barley and the dates, and he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even if you give half a date, give it out. Allahu Akbar. This is a man of action. There was a need that needed to be addressed, and he addressed it sallallahu alayhi wasallam even half a date Rasulullah sallallahu

00:13:39--> 00:13:55

alayhi wa sallam is saying give that as well. Because we know from other Hadith, he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that fear the Hellfire, even if it be with half a date, may Allah subhanahu wa tada make us diligent. I mean, my dear brothers and sisters.

00:13:58--> 00:14:13

Allah subhanho wa Taala never left us astray in this world. He reviewed books, and he sent prophets and the role of the Prophet was to provide clarity, amidst confusion,

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

clarity, amidst confusion, the prophets came to set us upon a plane known as perspective, to teach us who we are, to teach us where we are, to teach us where we going and to teach us how to get there successfully. This is what they came to do. The MBA Allahu wa Salatu was Salam. And Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was most excellent and most eloquent in doing so. In setting us upon the plane of perspective. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't come to give us gold coins and silver coins and material well being and financial standing and homes and better vehicles and so on and so forth.

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

He came not to give us content, but he came to provide us with context to different seas. Right? When we live in confusion, we only see the sea of content. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to provide clarity and place us upon the plane of perspective. And he taught us about the sea of context. Why? Because he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to connect us to the Hereafter, he came to connect us to the hereafter. Thus, he came to teach us how to tie that which we love, to the one who we should be loving Allahu Akbar, you might as well tweet that because that should be written in gold.

00:15:46--> 00:15:47

That's a pearl of wisdom.

00:15:49--> 00:16:35

He came to tie that which we love, to the one who we should be loving. This is who he was sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is why he could speak to the Sahaba and command them to spend because he taught them context. He taught them My dear brothers and sisters, that in confusion, you thought that the poor person needed you. But in context, you learn now that it is you who needs the poor person Subhan Allah, it is you who needs the poor person. Why? Because you weren't made for this world. You are made for Jana, you are made for Jenna. And in being charitable to this poor person. Allah subhanho wa Taala provides for your great agenda. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the

00:16:35--> 00:17:08

understanding. So before Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the world viewed things in a certain way. But after him sallallahu alayhi wasallam they could never view the world and matters of this world. In the same way, brothers and sisters, sometimes we enter a state of heedlessness, and we spoke about the evils of heedlessness yesterday shavon confuses us, he has made it his prime objective to worry us and shavon has made wealth as if it's the twin of the self.

00:17:09--> 00:17:12

Mashallah, we have some poets also in this conference.

00:17:16--> 00:18:03

Paper makes us feel as if this wealth is the twin of the self, this is how mankind feels, and perhaps the reason for that is because of the difficulty in ascertaining this wealth, it is attained through sweat, you have to give some of yourself to attain this wealth, right. So, as a result, after you give some of yourself and you ascertain this wealth, it becomes visibly difficult for you to part with it, to part with it, especially if you do not see a visible return before the grave. This is what it is. If we don't see a visible return before the grave to our spending, it becomes increasingly difficult to spend this wealth. But brothers and sisters, when we look at the teachings

00:18:03--> 00:18:56

of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he, in providing us with context teaches us that wealth is not obtained. Rather wealth is ordained. Again, we discuss two seas. Now I'm discussing with you two O's. Before in confusion, we saw wealth as something obtained, and after we see the light in the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we now see the O of ordained this wealth is ordained. Whatever comes to us is because Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed it coming to us. By Allah if you could manage to work 24 hours in one minute in your day, you will not get anything extra from the treasures of Allah subhanho wa Taala unless Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed for you that

00:18:56--> 00:19:10

treasure understand this. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the nafcillin Tomita had to stick Miller is that no soul shall taste death. No soul shall taste death until

00:19:12--> 00:19:48

that soul has consumed the last morsel of food decreed for it. When you die, it's because you've consumed your sustenance and you will not die before that sustenance is consumed. If there's one grain of rice left, you will not pass away My dear brothers and sisters understand this. This is context. This is what he came to provide for us. sallallahu alayhi wasallam and in providing context, he taught us brothers and sisters in law hasta la mina mina fusa Home.

00:19:49--> 00:19:52

Home the en Allahu

00:19:55--> 00:20:00

Allahu Akbar. He taught us Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that in

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

deed Allah has bought from the believers their life and their wealth in exchange for Jana.

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

In exchange for Jana, in providing us perspective, he taught us Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Yeah levena man. Oh, hell, welcome

00:20:25--> 00:20:26

00:20:37--> 00:20:45

La Hebei am wily Kumar fusi comb. He taught us Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:20:46--> 00:21:17

Oh you who believe, shall I tell you about a trade about a transaction that will save you from a painful punishment that is better for you If you only knew. He taught us to believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala and believe in the message of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and to strive in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala with our wealth and with ourselves. This is the true trade. This is the trade when a person is upon perspective.

00:21:18--> 00:22:03

He taught us Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that this wealth My dear brothers and sisters is not ours. It belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala. It belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah said he bought it from us in exchange for Jenna, in exchange for Jenna. And that is why we will be answerable regarding the time that we've spent and the wealth that we've spent when we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of piano, if this time and this wealth was yours and mine, why should we be answerable about this time and wealth when we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of the AMA, why it's ours. But no, my dear brothers and sisters, it belongs to Allah and Allah in

00:22:03--> 00:22:52

His divine wisdom and mercy, he lent it to us in different proportions. Thus, he gave some people and lent them more time. So they lived longer, and others he gave them less time. So they didn't live as long and with others, he lent them more wealth, so they were richer, and others he didn't lend them that much wealth. So there was slightly poor, Allah distributed his wealth and these blessings amongst us as an Amana now, asked me, my dear brothers and sisters, earlier I said that whenever in this world, we spend, and we do not see an immediate return before the grave. We consider it what a sacrifice, right? That's what we do. If somebody does charitable work, we say,

00:22:52--> 00:23:02

thank you very much for your sacrifice. That's what we say. Right? He gave his time. He wasn't paid for his time. That's a sacrifice. He gave his wealth.

00:23:04--> 00:23:50

And he didn't get anything in return before the grave that is a sacrifice. But by Allah asked you, can you sacrifice something you don't own? Can you if I gave you 10,000 ringgits and I said, so and so I will call you next week and tell you where to transfer this money to? When I do so. And you carry out the transfer? Can you tell the person who you transferred the money to? I've sent you some money, I've sacrificed it. Can you do that? You can't. It wasn't your money. You didn't no sacrifice whatsoever. You cannot sacrifice what you don't own. My dear brothers and sisters, if you understand that Allah has bought your time, and he's bought your wealth in exchange for paradise, and he is the

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

owner of this time, and he is the owner of this wealth. We are not sacrificing anything My dear brothers and sisters, we don't own it. But Allah is most merciful as we discussed yesterday. He is perfect from ever, and he's perfect forever. He doesn't need you to spend in his path for him to be greater. And if you don't, it won't remove from His Majesty subhanho wa Taala. When you do spend the way he has instructed you to do and from your time and your wealth, what happens? Allah rewards you and what do you call

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

this situation? When you spend something and you get something greater in return? What is that called?

00:24:32--> 00:24:59

investment. See, the businessmen are smiling Mashallah. They they love that term investment. Some were nodding off now they awake, where's the investment? Right? That's an investment when you spend for the sake of Allah and Allah makes your agenda more beautiful. From your time in your wealth. Allah has invested your spending. It has come back to you with greater returns. And this My dear brothers and

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

This is perspective. And this My dear brothers and sisters, his context and this is what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to teach us. He taught us that the wealth we aspire for, according to Allah subhanho wa Taala and Subhanallah Allah He we fight over this wealth. He taught us that this wealth which we aspire for, according to Allah does not equate to the wing of a mosquito Subhanallah the wing forget the mosquito, the wing of a mosquito, this world and everything it contains, with Allah subhanho wa Taala does not equate except to the wing of a mosquito. So what about many witches a portion of this world and what it contains, it equates to a portion of the wing

00:25:44--> 00:25:57

of a mosquito, by Allah, it does not equate to anything valuable, the way we make it out to be my dear brothers and sisters. He taught us perspective. He taught us sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, wala termo

dounia Lena Steena whom see what is for a baker hi yo.

00:26:15--> 00:26:27

He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaching us that Allah revealed to him and do not extend your eyes towards that by which we have given enjoyment to some people.

00:26:29--> 00:27:16

Meaning the splendor of this worldly life. Allah says, the splendor we have given them is the way by which we test them. And Allah says, and the provision of your Lord is better and more enduring. The provision of your Lord is better and more enduring. SubhanAllah and in teaching us perspective, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us that this wealth would you and I love so much and you and I hold steadfast onto so tightly. He taught us Allahu alayhi wa sallam that it is a test. It is a test. Many of us think we only been tested. When we go through adversity, when someone passes away. When we lose that business deal, when we lose our job, we say Subhan Allah we being tested.

00:27:17--> 00:27:54

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he taught us perspective, he taught us that when Allah gives you he's also testing you so panoro be Allah Allah. For he said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaching us that which Allah revealed to him for a male insan either my patella hora boo for a Chroma who when Amma for your cooler be acraman Subhana Allah, Allah subhanahu lsats. And as for man, when his Lord tries him, test him, Allah says when his Lord tests him, how he Allah when Allah is generous to him, and favors him.

00:27:56--> 00:28:45

Subhana Allah, little did we know? Because we don't read our book. We don't ponder over this is, Allah has said, As for mankind, when his Lord tests him, How? By giving him financial standing by giving him material well being what does he say? He says, My Lord has honored me, either Mr. patella hufa de la risca for your call Robbie Hannon. But when Allah test him by taking away that financial standing or material well being and restricts His provision, he says My Lord has humiliated me.

May Allah subhanahu wa taala not make us love money more than Allah subhanho wa Taala I mean, I mean Yoruba alameen wa he My dear brothers and sisters, by Allah yesterday I had to sit and listen, listen to one of our team members in my submission,

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

saying how we have some Muslims in certain countries that have too fast because they don't have food. They don't have food. They go six days without eating. And then when they get a chance to eat, they eat flour mixed in wood.

00:29:38--> 00:29:41

flour mixed in water My dear brothers and sisters.

00:29:43--> 00:29:59

These are our Muslim brothers and sisters. And they exist. They exist My dear brothers and sisters what has happened to us what has happened to us, we've taken material well being and given it a status far higher than, than the human being and it's so

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

ironic Allah subhanho wa Taala says who Alevi Haleakala Kumar fill out the Jamia. Allah says it is Allah who created everything in this world for you, everything in this world for you to be of service to you and we have taken it and made it more important than the people that Allah has created this thing for what has happened to us, Mahara Kabira pickle curry has put us in a deception of Allah, Who is generous, who is Karim

Allah subhanho wa Taala says in an amazing area, my dear brothers and sisters to

He says know that the life of this world is but amusement and diversion and adornment and boasting to one another and competing in the increment of your wealth and your children. The example of this life is like the example of rain that falls upon plants

00:32:03--> 00:32:51

and allows growth which pleases the farmers. Then Allah says, It dries up and you see the plants turning yellow, and then it becomes debris and in the Hereafter, is severe punishment and in the hereafter also is forgiveness from Allah and approval. And what is this worldly life except enjoyment of delusion? lahoma Stan, Allah Mr. And this is the reality My dear brothers and sisters are servants of Allah. And children of Adam understand, this wealth will not remain. It does not exist as a static presence. It has a volatile presence in our life changes. Sometimes it's more sometimes it's less, everything in life reaches a peak, and then it spirals into decline. Super

00:32:51--> 00:33:06

Powers came and they went, where are they today? Rich people came and they passed away and died and their wealth was taken by the inheritance. So Pamela, Superman, subhanaw taala, a famous poet, when he saw Spain, Spain

00:33:09--> 00:33:39

coming out of the hands of the Muslims with tears, he said liquidity cliche in either mathema Nakano for la hora de Bella he insano. He said, he said, Everything in life reaches its peak. And once it reaches its peak, it will spiral into decline. So mankind should not be deceived by a good life. Don't be deceived by a good life. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us this understanding. I mean, I mean, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:33:41--> 00:34:32

you and I have been conditioned to understand how important matters are by looking at the package that Allah subhanho wa Taala the package that has been placed with that particular thing, not so, right. We aspire to be a CEO. Why? Because the package that comes with being a CEO is amazing. That's why you aspire to be a CEO, you aspire to be a doctor, why the respect the financial presence, the opportunities that are packaged for a doctor are amazing. So you become inspired to become a doctor. Right? in management, we say in management, we say reward is proportional to effort. Right? If the reward is great, that means the effort must be great as well. Right? If the

00:34:32--> 00:34:59

reward is great, right for you to have that reward, it needs great effort. And that great effort comes with a great title in the [???]tier we say Al Jazeera minjin Sillerman again reward is relative to the type of effort offered reward from Allah is proportional to the type of effort offered, 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.

00:35:00--> 00:35:45

Give for the sake of Allah, then we must look at the prizes that have been set. And when we look at these prizes, we can't help but see that Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us that spending in the path of Allah helps develop your morals, helps develop your manners helps develop your etiquettes for Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says in Surah, Mohammed is 88. 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 ayah teaches us that from the rewards of 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

00:35:45--> 00:36:07

first gift. The second gift, my dear brothers and sisters, is that it is the greatest investment for a believer, right? We're always looking to grow our assets. We're always looking to grow our principal and Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah Al Hadid, the 18th ayah in Alma de una

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

de

00:36:11--> 00:36:16

la hora, bon Hashanah, you yova fula, whom Allah whom

00:36:17--> 00:36:39

Karim, Allah says, indeed the men who practice charity and the women and the women who practice charity, and they have loaned a law a goodly loan, meaning they have spent for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, Allah says it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a noble reward.

00:36:40--> 00:36:46

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

00:36:47--> 00:37:29

entice me further. Well, then, we have in Surah Baqarah, 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 say, seven stems, seven stems, each stem carrying 100 seats 100 times seven equals 700. So your investment is multiplied. 700%.

00:37:30--> 00:38:05

When you give for the sake of Allah, your one is multiplied. 700% and it doesn't end there for Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says, Allah who you will be fully Masha 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 aarav is number 156 says or met he was he at school lashay first October

00:38:07--> 00:38:10

in a taco now Why are you tune as?

00:38:12--> 00:38:13

Well levena

00:38:15--> 00:38:53

Tina, you mean Oh, Allah says but my mercy encompasses all things. So I will decree it especially for those who fear me and give the charity and those who believe in our is the fourth prize for being a spender for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah is that Allah subhanho wa Taala uses it to remove our sins and how in need are we have those means that look after the removal of our sins? Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, In Tobu sada or Tiffany

00:38:55--> 00:38:55

he

00:38:57--> 00:39:01

flew to hell fukao

00:39:04--> 00:39:05

where you can

00:39:07--> 00:39:08

say,

00:39:09--> 00:39:37

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 says 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 aware.

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

The fifth prize

00:39:42--> 00:39:59

spending in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala is a means of gaining closeness to Allah for Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in his book in Surah Toba Ayah number 99. But amongst the Bedouins are some who believe in Allah and the Last Day and consider

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

Do what they spend as a means of neediness to Allah and obtaining the dose of the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is why they do it. Allah says unquestionably, it is a means of neediness 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 is inside al Bukhari and Muslim he would say Allahumma salli, ala a be over. Allahu Akbar, O Allah send blessings upon a be over, right so Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would make this door. Also brothers and sisters from the prizes that are given to the one who

00:40:46--> 00:41:10

spends his Allah increases their taqwa. And a wall is erected that protects them from the punishment of Johanna because this is taqwa and tangela Bay in a carabiner. Below he will try to place between yourself and the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala. A barrier Allah at the beginning of Surah Al Baqarah says that

00:41:11--> 00:42:00

Alif Lam Meem their legal keytab Larry Buffy houda limited in this book is a means of guidance for the people of taqwa Who are the people of taqwa Allah. Allah Vina umino Nabila hiab those who believe in the unseen well up Muna salah and they establish the salah woman, Rosana, whom you and from that which we provide them they spend also my dear brothers and sisters, time is up, time is up, but from the greatest gifts for the one who spends for the sake of Allah. Is that Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses him with a Jenna which has a width which is greater than the heavens and the earth. Allahu Akbar. I mean, if that doesn't inspire us, what will what will? Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:42:01--> 00:42:04

In the fourth Jews in the first quarter

Allah subhanho wa Taala says and march forth towards the forgiveness of your Lord and a paradise that has a width which is greater than the heavens and the earth, a paradise that has been prepared for the people of taqwa Who are these people of taqwa Allah, Allah says they are those who spend from their wealth during times of ease, and during times of difficulty will remain alive. And they are people who suppress anger will Athena and Ines and they forgive other people will love who you have seen. And Allah loves those who do quit. May Allah make us from the people of Jenna. I mean, I mean, my dear brothers and sisters, time has come to an end. I've mentioned for you all six

00:43:30--> 00:43:57

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 endof brothers and sisters with two points. The first point is a completion to the story. I started with

00:43:59--> 00:44:01

the story of Mohammed mooneyes nadie.

00:44:02--> 00:44:09

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

00:44:10--> 00:44:14

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

00:44:15--> 00:44:50

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 that 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, and I introduced myself in my dream. I'm sagitta Omar, and he introduced himself as early unity. So I got a bit perplexed. I said, I know him as Muhammad Ali. How can he sing his early unity?

00:44:53--> 00:44:55

So I woke up obviously,

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

and I never get dreams interpreted.

00:45:00--> 00:45:14

But this dream I thought I must. And I spoke to some of our missionaries 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.

00:45:16--> 00:45:19

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

00:45:20--> 00:45:27

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

00:45:29--> 00:45:46

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

00:45:47--> 00:45:50

these projects that you are walking through with this man,

00:45:51--> 00:45:55

it means that these projects are benefiting him where he is right now.

00:45:57--> 00:46:43

All the spending he did when he was alive is benefiting him right now. And as for him, calling himself Valley you know, de, when his name is Mohammed nadie. Then Allah says, In surah, Allah Fie, that the righteous people are from the elevated of people, and early refers to the elevated so he is dining with the elite right now this is glad tidings from Allah that you're making do out for this man. Allah is telling you his placement after his past stories of hanabi Allah Allah, Allah He made my hair stand Allah He and he made my Eman grow. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us better lives than the life he gave to Mohammed, buenas nadie make us more diligent than him in our spending and

00:46:43--> 00:47:32

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 Ayesha rhodiola and her when she says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on read on read Allah. He slotted cappuccini amila Haney Cronin, he slotted two RAMs, white and black in color, which had horns. And after he snorted these two RAMs, he said to his wife, Aisha radiallahu anha. Oh, Ayesha, distribute the Rams and he went away. So she happily started distributing it. And she says after some time, he came back sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he

00:47:32--> 00:47:46

asked me and said, Yeah, Asia, 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.

00:47:47--> 00:48:02

Nothing remains in wakatipu and nothing remains except the shoulder. He said to her sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or Ayesha Ayesha don't say nothing remains except the shoulder. Say everything remains except the shoulder.

00:48:04--> 00:48:49

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. la sala Allahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant has 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 us selfless and not selfish. May Allah subhanho wa Taala gathers in Jana, with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his companions and all those who love to spend for the sake of Allah. I mean your brothers and sisters, I love you all for the

00:48:49--> 00:49:29

sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala once again, just below heroin 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 to gather us in this dunya together many, many times again. And I asked him to gather us underneath his outfit on the day of piano after that, the same way he gathered us here today. And I asked him together as in Alfredo Sal Allah 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

00:49:29--> 00:49:45

Taala and he's perfect. And any mistakes from myself and Siobhan and I seek a loss of Hannah who has forgiven us has our logo lm or sallallahu wasallam odaka and Amina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ultramarine Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
