Bismillah

00:00:05--> 00:00:14

R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu wa salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge mine.

00:00:15--> 00:00:49

El presidente Allah subhana wa Taala and please be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or testify that there's no god except Allah to see for the Muhammad is the Prophet and the Messenger of Allah. Brothers and sisters, I think Allah subhanho wa Taala once again for this beautiful gathering that we get together for the sake of Allah azza wa jal to learn more about the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala to understand exactly what Allah subhanaw taala wants from us. Thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for making us from amongst those who follow the path of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam who are the followers of the greatest of the greatest man,

00:00:50--> 00:00:56

the followers of the greatest men of all, or the greatest of men of all sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

the followers of the greatest prophet and messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala had sent Allah subhanaw taala had made us to be from the Nation of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Sharla will continue with the different chapters of this beautiful book, which is a compilation of the different Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam compiled by amendment nowait, who put together this book for the sake of teaching us our everyday worships rituals, and what Allah Subhana Allah wants from us. And tonight is a very interesting topic. Tonight's topic is an interesting topic, tonight's topic, we'll be talking about leaving a simple life and not to be too connected to the

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

dunya

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

in which it's not as as good

00:01:47--> 00:02:01

as the word in Arabic means that your primary focus is that he after you live a simple life for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you live that simple life for the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal not because you're forced to because he chose to.

00:02:02--> 00:02:04

And he did that. Because you want the

00:02:06--> 00:02:12

Babel fugly as God for dunya one has the article Lula minha wafak live

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

excellence of leading a simple life and its virtues. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Holy Quran

00:02:22--> 00:02:31

in the mammoth aloha to dunya karma and Jana who Meena sama, Tata Bina battle or de Mayock una su well anom Hector

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

Rafa was the unit

00:02:36--> 00:03:25

la Marina Leyland owner Hara for Jana. How sweet. Donna Williams, Gallic gallica no fossil is a comment on in this verse, Allah subhanaw taala he is depicting and drawing for us a picture of this dunya compared to the Hereafter, what loss of Hannah what Allah had given us in this dunya what Allah subhanaw taala prepared for us in the hereafter. And Allah subhanaw taala describes it to be Allah says about this dunya in the dunya. The example of this dunya is this land, this fertile land, Allah subhanaw taala sends down the showers since then the rain, and then the rain comes on this land. And then this land is a fertile land starts to grow some crops plant seeds to the end of it.

00:03:26--> 00:04:07

And then they become from flowers, vegetables, fruits, trees, beautiful plants. But then what happens sooner or later, someone will come and take and destroy or, or someone will come and eat or whether that person that will either is a human being or that someone could be an animal. So it's something beautiful from the beginning that a bit of hardship, crops, plants, vegetables, fruits, it grows, you see it there, but then one strong wind will take it all. And then the whole thing will disappear. We'll destroy the whole thing, the whole thing will vanish, or someone will come in later and the T it doesn't exist anymore. So a lot of that has given the example of dystonia. dystonia is

00:04:07--> 00:04:18

not something that you see as a beautiful thing, but then sooner or later Allah subhanaw taala is going to take this away from me or take away from this dunya one of the two and a lot of the times to have a lot of things away from me and then takes you from the dunya

00:04:20--> 00:04:59

so this dunya What's this? dunya dunya and I'm sure you know what would the word dunya. The word dunya refers to the world that we live in this world that we live in is called dunya this world that we live in, in Arabic And Allah subhanaw taala refers to as dunya Have you ever contemplated and thought What does dunya mean Arabic every word in Arabic has a meaning. Mohammed bin Salman who constantly prizes Allah subhana wa Tada. And other names that you mentioned, that always have meanings, there is a root, there is a root that these names are derived from that gives a original Arabic meaning. So the word dunya derives from Danny

00:05:00--> 00:05:14

The word dunya derives from then a guy, What's the name? in Arabic means something low, or something dishonorable or something that has very little, if not, no value.

00:05:16--> 00:05:50

Something low. So dunya derives from the word Danny, which means something low. What the loss of panatela What did the Arabs refer to this world as dunya? Because this dunya is so low compared to the hereafter. Yes, we live in this dunya we live in this world, and this golden silver and his children and his wealth and his houses and his fruits and his food. And this pleasure and this ledger and there's a lot of things that you can enjoy in this dunya but when you want to compare this dunya today after this dunya is so low, compared to our last panel data prepared for you in the hereafter.

00:05:51--> 00:06:07

That's why this is or this world is called dunya something I love, love walled compared to the primary would Allah walled compared to the world and the problem that we're talking about? It's the world of the hereafter.

00:06:08--> 00:06:16

Allah subhanaw taala refers to this dunya allama Anima and higher to dunya la eborn wanna one was in atone, what?

00:06:18--> 00:06:49

What a Catherine family when Allah, Allah subhanaw taala say acknowledge and know that this dunya and higher to dunya the Lord in this dunya the life in this world this low world that we live in that everyone's fighting everyone everyone's killing one another urban everyone wants to do everything over that sooner or later either Allah subhanaw taala is gonna take away from me, well, I'm gonna take away from it. So it's bound to happen. Either one of them or two of them are most likely a lot of the times two of them a lot of money away from you, and then takes you away from the dunya that's why it's so low compared to the hereafter. dounia

00:06:50--> 00:07:33

li sang to us Alamo know for a fact that this dunya that you are living in like it's only play one amusement was Xena and just decorations, adornments, what up Ah, hold on by law calm and just boasting, boasting, everything's in front of one another. This person wants to boast over the house that he's got. And this person wants to bust out of the car that he's got. And this lady wants to bust out the jewelry that she's wearing. And this lady wants to bust out with the dress that she's wearing. It's just about boasting and showing off around one another. Luca, Luca, Luca, Luca, Luca I purchased Luca, Luca, Luca I possess Luca.

00:07:34--> 00:08:06

Allah subhanaw taala describes as tougher for people just boast sometimes you buy something, not because you need it. And he needed needed he bought an extra car and extra furniture extra house, you know that you don't need, you know, there's going to be sitting there, it's all about just showing off, to show off in front of other people to say, you know what, I've got money, I'm rich, and wealthy, we love to show off. And a lot of the times we like to show up with despising the other side. So we'd like to show off and looking at another side. I'm rich and you Paul, I'm someone and you know

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

what the

00:08:09--> 00:08:47

what the character of Allah. It's just a competition between one another on who has more wealth and who has more children, who has more water has more children, I've got more money than you and I've got more children than you. Obviously back then when you say I will add more children they have is the more backing the bar. The less people muck around with these lucky now this person has 10 Kids 15 kids, you can't muck around with someone like him. So Allah subhanaw taala describes this journey as well. In other words, a lot of others describe it as a mirage, just a movie. You know, that movie that you know, it's just a movie. And you know that something's happened about them that you're not

00:08:47--> 00:09:12

convinced because just a Hollywood movie. And you know, people are crying but someone who's dead may say, you know, it's just a movie. It's just been a few shooting in the tea. Nothing more than that. This video is not a movie. This is not related to people just show off. People just boast about he has more wealth, he has more children or has more this and he has more that Allah subhanaw taala describes is only just a world of boasting.

00:09:13--> 00:09:45

I was showing off, I walled off, people just wanna look down at others because I've got something more than the others. So lots of how that describes it. And then Allah subhanaw taala describes a chemical is a thin chargeable kuffar on a bottle. So my agent Tara homosassa, Miko hakama, Allah describes it as what pleases a farmer, someone works so hard in the farm, someone work so hard on the land, to grow crops to grow plants to grow trees, and at the end of the day, what happens after all the hard work, they pick them, either flushing the toilet,

00:09:47--> 00:09:51

that's what really happens. We're not saying that this is wrong. Allah is not saying

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

no, no, no, Allah subhanaw taala just comparing this parable, Allah is comparing the example of this dunya to Allah subhanaw taala prepared for you in the hereafter.

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

of the dunya you work so hard, and you put the hard yards, and you put so much effort and you put so much time into doing something and then just goes away so quick.

00:10:11--> 00:10:47

So Allah subhanaw taala wants us to understand the main point that Allah subhanaw taala wants us to understand that this dunya doesn't last, you work so hard for it, the last one, you wait for something that will last, what would last, what really last is the heat after you working so hard for this dunya that doesn't last work the everlasting Allah subhanaw taala prepared for you if you are putting so much time and effort in this dunya and you're putting so much time and effort into this wall models will put the time and effort into the hereafter and see what Allah subhanaw taala give you because we work so hard for this dunya which I have for the world of this dunya and the

00:10:47--> 00:10:59

length of this dunya and the properties of this dunya I work so hard for everything to do with this dunya but we put minimal effort when it comes to the hereafter. Allah subhana wa tada doesn't have a problem with you putting time and effort into this dunya but

00:11:01--> 00:11:07

if you are putting time and effort into something that's not gonna last for something and put more time and effort into something that's gonna last

00:11:08--> 00:11:22

so don't get me wrong when we talk about and when we are referring. And when we start talking about the dunya and comparing this dunya to the hereafter it's never intended out of this topic they in our abandon this dunya and out of

00:11:23--> 00:11:38

out of tonight's topic of tonight's lecture gamma result out of your workout so your house again so your furniture and gun get a small heart and start sleeping on the ground and don't eat anymore. Mashallah. Fancy food? Yeah. And again, boy Happy Meal from McDonald's, because that's what it costs $5. But make sure

00:11:39--> 00:11:45

no, no, no, that's not the intent of this topic. The intent is not for you to thrive in your business. No.

00:11:46--> 00:12:12

The intent is not for you to stop becoming a successful person in your life, whether it be business or education, or whatever it is, that intends for you to have dance, selling. Let us get things straight from the very beginning. Let us set the record straight from the very beginning. I don't want anyone to think out of tonight's topic or tonight's lecture, that the intent is for you to abandon this dunya and that's a normal work now making money now more businesses now Modus naumova is just

00:12:14--> 00:12:14

not that's wrong.

00:12:16--> 00:12:22

What Islam wants from me is that you balance your life, be successful in your business must be successful in your religion.

00:12:23--> 00:12:26

be successful in your education, be successful,

00:12:28--> 00:12:42

be successful with your properties, but be successful with attending the massage and that's what Islam wants you to do. So there's got to be that balance we need to strike that balance. Because a lot of the times when you talk about this topic the very next day you find someone Mashallah or a big business

00:12:43--> 00:12:47

handler and weapon to house assaulted handler What about you know, his fancy car?

00:12:48--> 00:12:50

Remember the lecture they gave shift, but

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

you really want to put the blame on me.

00:12:54--> 00:13:18

I think you misunderstood me here. Nintendo is made out of the The intention is for you to strike balance in your life. That's what we're trying to say. Because it's not wanting to be successful. Amazon wants it to be a successful businessman. wants you to be successful in your work. Allah subhanaw taala wants you to be successful in education. You Korea Allah subhanaw taala wants you to be successful everyone, whatever you do, as long as you strike that balance, the issue that we've got is strong in the bounce.

00:13:19--> 00:14:00

A lot of hydrotalcite says yeah, you had levina Yeah. yohannes in Nevada lighthawk fella Tawana coming here to dunya Walla Walla Kombi la hora, Allah subhanaw taala says, Oh man, con verily the promise of Allah subhanaw taala is true. So do not be deceived by this life by this dunya and do not be deceived by the shape on in which Allah subhanaw taala says the shaitan is indeed your enemy. So don't be deceived by this dunya don't make this dunya as your primary objective. Now it's not your primary objective. You're only bypassing in this dunya it's only a transit that make any final destination that make this a final destination. When you travel from here to London and you stop

00:14:00--> 00:14:35

over one of the countries let's say you're traveling from Sydney to Lebanon, you have to stop in Malaysia for example, Dubai, that might Dubai Malaysia Final Destination you still got another destination ahead of you. So don't get occupied. And then detach yourself from the final destination which is going to your funnel. Stop what's happening to us Allah subhanaw taala made this dunya as a transit we make this dunya as the final destination that's it we'll do everything that we need to do in this dunya but this dunya is not your final destination is the hereafter. So you've done everything that you needed to do in this donor but you forgot about the heat after even prepare for

00:14:35--> 00:14:39

the day after this dunya is a transit it's a stopover

00:14:40--> 00:14:47

and Allah subhanaw taala also says Ziggy nlnac chahatein aneesa he will benina work on

00:14:49--> 00:15:00

it was a woman it was an army will have the link Amazon dounia will oh and Allah subhanaw taala says it is beautiful for men and obviously here. also include

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

Women, it is the love of things such as women and women love men and the love of children, the love of the gold and silver, the love of brands, beautiful horses, the love, the love of lands and crops and Kairos and Allah subhanaw taala says that they cannot have had the dunya these are the pleasures of this world in life while law in the system, Okay, no problem is not what you love. Men love women. Women love men. Yeah, you love your children. You love your properties. You love your fathers, you love your cuddles. You love your this you love your dad. No problems that's yours. But don't forget the hereafter will lower and so Allah subhanaw taala is not reprimanding you. And I'm

00:15:43--> 00:15:49

not saying to you know abandon everything. No, no, no, no, no problems, keep it but then forget the final destination.

00:15:50--> 00:15:51

Always remember that.

00:15:52--> 00:15:58

It all goes back to balance our biggest struggle and challenges that we struggle to balance our lives.

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

The first happy Thea

00:16:04--> 00:16:06

the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says

00:16:07--> 00:16:30

follow Him and grow up Sha Alaikum wa Kenya and to SATA dunya karma mussatto Allah man Khanna, kubla Khan, Fatah su hakima tener cassava fatale cuckoo karma Allah catacomb delicato. Here Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, after he saw that the dunya is opened up to this a habit of the Lord.

00:16:31--> 00:16:54

We all know that the very beginning of the emergence of the prophecy of the problem homosassa or the advent of the prophecy of the problem homosassa and the beginning of the double the Prophet la Sol Salaam, especially in the face of Mecca, the Sahaba de la talam encountered a lot of challenges, so much so that they didn't have a place for them to sleep under, or a shelter for them to sleep under a place for them to sleeping.

00:16:55--> 00:17:29

Always persecuted and tortured and tormented until Allah subhanaw taala made it easy for them and Allah subhanaw taala opened for them the opening of migrating from Mecca to Medina where there's a habit of the amount of money migrated from Mecca to Medina when the midwinter Medina the beginning was challenging. But then later on Allah subhanaw taala continued to make those openings for the Sahaba of the Lord. We're just before the death of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he could say the Prophet Mohammed Salah had control and authority of the Arabian Peninsula. Then during the time I'm gonna hop over the Muslims have control over the eastern West, the two greatest

00:17:29--> 00:18:04

empires the Persian Empire in the east of the Roman Empire in the West. So the visualizer will start to see the dunya opened up to this a habit of the low tide and what did he say? He said, la salatu salam O Allah, other fee poverty upon me, I'm not afraid of poverty. I'm not afraid that one day gonna be cool. I'm not afraid that one day gonna be begging. That's not the faith of God. But the faith of God Allah subhana wa tada will continue to open up the dunya Allah subhana wa tada opened this world to you and Allah subhanaw taala start opening the wolf to you and a lot of penalties that opening the rest of things to weigh becomes a welfare rich, and then what happens. And then you

00:18:04--> 00:18:10

start competing with one another ever the dunya were previously competing one another, you're competing with one another.

00:18:11--> 00:18:42

That's a habit of the lowdown on them. They used to compete with what he paid more, who fostered more, who gave more, that's their competition. That's the challenge. That's the race that we're engaged in. They used to compete with one another ever the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. But then what happens later on, people start to compete, he's got a better house, he's got a better car, he's got a better horse, he's got a better kettle he's got a better this has got a bit other people start to complain. So Nabi sallallahu. wasallam says, I don't see poverty upon me. I'm not afraid of poverty, I'm not afraid that one day you're going to be begging mama Fred Allah subhanaw taala will

00:18:42--> 00:19:03

continue to provide to you analyze or continue to give you an open dunya to you until you reach to the level where you start competing with one another. And then you become one of the previous nations before you were the start to compete with one another ever the dunya so Allah destroyed them in return Allah destroy the way destroy them. dangerous to be concerned here.

00:19:04--> 00:19:30

We will start competing with one another ever the dunya and that's what's happening right now. Muslims are competing with one another. He's got a better house, he's got a better car. He's got a bit of this and he's got better. He's got more work, and he's got more of this. And he's got more than its competition. And that's what people are always striving, who strives to say, you know what, this brother is praying. I want to pray more than him. Do you ever hear that? If you ever hear that you're gonna look at this guy. Look at this node. He's lost the plot

00:19:31--> 00:19:48

Mashallah, this brother prays five times a day I want to compete with this brother and pray five times a day in the masjid this brother Mashallah is fasting every, every second day I'm going to fast more than him I want to be like him. Mashallah, this rather than out of the 1000 of them if 2000 this brother gets 10,000 or 20,000 there's not competition.

00:19:50--> 00:19:53

The competition is this guy successful. I want to be more successful in business.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

This guy, this guy has a house. He's got a big house. I'm gonna have a bigger house than him.

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

He's got a nice car I'm gonna get the latest model, I'm gonna have the latest watch, I'm gonna have the latest is always the competition. So I never saw Sam is warning us and they say be cautious, be careful. They start competing with one another every now and then Allah subhanaw taala will destroy the way destroyed the previous nations before they competed with one another Evans Jr. and the honest truth is he is really comparable jr really that we compete

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

who compete

00:20:27--> 00:20:35

with them. On the contrary, we compare ourselves when it comes to the dunya to some of the aka he's got a million after half 2 million.

00:20:36--> 00:20:56

That's how we compare ourselves. So we always look for the pioneers, and we look for the best of people when it comes to the field of dunya. So this person is successful in the business, I want to be more successful than him. But when it comes to the ethanol, we'll go and look for someone who does the minimum. So this person will look at me say, Oh, you know, this person gets to the message once a week.

00:20:57--> 00:21:07

There's no need for me to be better than him. Look for someone who is, I don't wanna say low but someone who is not on the best of levels when it comes to the dean.

00:21:08--> 00:21:18

Not the best of examples. So when it comes to the dunya will always search and look for someone who is the best of example comes to the junior when it comes to the Acura, we'll look at someone who is not even an example when it comes to that.

00:21:19--> 00:21:28

Or, you know, he's given 1000 we'll go look for someone Someone gave 100 100 the other day compared to the one that gave 1000

00:21:29--> 00:21:44

or you know that brother prays five times a day but you know, there's another brother just give us a lot of drama or become like him. But when it comes to the dunya when it comes to this life when it comes to this world, we compete with one another are more than happy to pull whatever it takes for us to win that challenge and race.

00:21:45--> 00:21:56

where Allah subhanaw taala wants us to challenge Yes, Allah subhanaw taala was a challenge. But what challenges the Las panatela a loss of power scenario in a Filipino become agenda Tanaka somato

00:21:57--> 00:22:13

Allah subhanaw taala says, can play a race with one another. Allah wants us to race. Allah subhanho wa Taala wants you to race with me and Allah subhanaw taala wants me to rescue the analyzer wants us all to race with one another. But what race is Allah subhanaw taala referring to Allah subhanaw taala wants us to race with one another to

00:22:15--> 00:22:35

compete with one another, to who acquires the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and of course the highest level of gender. That's the race Allah subhanaw taala wants us to raise Allah subhanaw taala saying, race with one another to the forgiveness of Allah, the pleasure of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala prepared, which is the width of the gender more water than the heavens to the earth.

00:22:36--> 00:23:12

That's top of rice, Allah subhanaw taala wants you to undertake. But unfortunately, it doesn't exist in our lives. The race that we really have, who has a better car has a better house, it has more money, he has more successful business to the end of it, who sells more, he buys more to the end of it. That's the race that we're all indulging in. That's the race that we're all embedded in. Which again, which again, don't get me wrong. There's nothing wrong with the race, when it comes to the race when it comes to making money race when it comes to building houses race when it comes to having better cars. But before that race is another race they had forgotten. The first race they

00:23:12--> 00:23:46

should be racing to is the pleasure of Allah for giving us the gender and then the undertake the second sport, the second race and the second race that Allah subhanaw taala loves to undertake is that race, they race in Islam you know problems make money. Shortly become the wealthiest of people that we know. Be the best in your business be the best ukri be the best in education be the best wherever you are, allows you to be the best but before that you have to be the best and you need to be as concerned as you are when it comes to your dunya as serious as you are when it comes to you know be serious in your religion or what we said serious when it comes to our union. We're not

00:23:46--> 00:23:55

serious when it comes to our religion. While we take our linear series we don't take a series. Everything in our life is a series except when it comes to our Deen

00:23:56--> 00:23:58

the problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says

00:24:00--> 00:24:06

we're the Sahaba of the lodato we're surrounding the Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim in mahasarakham inbody

00:24:08--> 00:24:14

aleikum Minh Zahara tondonia was enough to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says

00:24:15--> 00:24:51

that what I'm concerned about after me, the real concern I've got after my death is not that concerned about you being poor, or the concern of poverty. The real concern that I've got after my death is the flourishing of this dunya Allah subhanaw taala opened up this unity, you become so wealthy, you become so rich, you've got everything. You've got access to everything, everything's available before your hands. But then what happens there, you start forgetting the loss of autonomy so that it becomes a form of distraction. When the dunya should be a form and a platform that gets us closer to Allah azza wa jal. And I'll tell you something, not in our percent of people that dunya

00:24:51--> 00:24:58

is a distraction. People get distracted by the new that's a reality. People get distracted by the new we get distracted by the money,

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

money, distraction

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

from Allah subhanaw taala

00:25:04--> 00:25:06

fame distracts us away from a lot of

00:25:07--> 00:25:32

beautiful houses and beautiful cars distracted us from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what's happening the dunya is becoming a form of distraction. When the dunya should be a form that gets us closer to Allah subhanaw taala away that gets us closer. That's the dunya but unfortunately in many, many times, and time and time again, we people are becoming distracted from the dunya dunya is becoming a distraction.

00:25:33--> 00:26:03

And it's happening so a lot of the times you see brothers, the Mashallah they are very steadfast. They're always frequent comments to them, as always attending them as as always attending the lessons. But the moment that Allah subhanaw taala starts to open them near to them, their business becomes flourished and thriving and prosper. What happens the dispersal stops coming to them as Subhanallah what happened he you shouldn't be more thankful to Allah subhanaw taala Allah has given you not that you turn away from Allah subhanaw taala

00:26:04--> 00:26:29

you should be more thankful to Allah subhanaw taala that Allah is Allah had opened the dunya to you because at the end of the day you will put Allah major rich, you wake Allah subhanaw taala strong, you have nothing a loss of power, I gave you everything. So this is the third, they should be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala another time they walk away from a lions order. And my brothers and my sisters are no and I want you to remember this poverty is a test when you poor it's a test. It's a test. I'm sorry, poverty is a test.

00:26:30--> 00:26:54

We don't have food on the table. We don't have money to pay rent, or money to pay the electricity. And so one of the bills, it's a test, I'm telling you, it's a test. And it's not an easy test. When you're encountering this challenge of you being poor, or not having enough income for you to pay your bills, or pay your rent, or bring food to the house. It is a test. I'm telling you it is a test. But you know what?

00:26:55--> 00:27:03

Listen carefully. When Allah subhanho wa Taala gives you a wolf. That's a bigger test and the test that loss of power destitute through poverty.

00:27:06--> 00:27:40

That's agreed upon amongst the scholars. When Allah subhanaw taala takes something away from me, like a lot took away from me, Wolf, what Allah subhanaw taala took away from me, whoa, that's a test. I'm telling you. It is a test. He can't deny the fact that I've got no money for me to pay my bills or rent and I've got no money for me to bring food to the table. I've got no money for me to buy new clothes to the end of it. That's a test but I'm telling you, my brother, my sisters, which is rich ones, those who are well off and those who are lost parent I've given both. When Allah gives you a wealth that's a bigger test on the poverty than yet then they had experienced.

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

When Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:27:45--> 00:27:53

gives you all that's a big test and the test that lots of artists do through poverty. Why? Because when Allah gives you a lot gives you to see what you're going to do.

00:27:56--> 00:27:58

When Allah gives you a lot gives you to see what you're going to do.

00:28:00--> 00:28:10

Amen, comes to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam this man is to pray for daily praise in the message of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam every single day, five times a day.

00:28:12--> 00:28:19

Whenever the problem homosassa will give Salaam salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah this campaign is always the, maybe the first roll on.

00:28:20--> 00:29:02

So one day this man came to the Prophet Muhammad SAW said, he felt the pressure of poverty, he felt it. And you know, it is it is a big pressure when you pull, it's not easy. And you know, I've experienced a bit of it, but not only what others are experiencing the, when I was overseas, as a student, not much income, I felt a bit of it. But that's not the reality of it. At the end of the day, one phone call could we'll see something happening, something will write from somewhere. But you've got people, no phone call, no internet, connections, no network, they're going to sleep that not starving, and the following, not starving. So they're going to be stressed during the day and

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

starving during the night.

00:29:04--> 00:29:22

So when we say well, I hate Australia, we've experienced poverty, maybe the surface of it hicker smell of it. But the reality of it, I guess, I guess I'm also see poverty. Those who don't even have $1 in their pocket, and they day after day after day, that we're not even $1 for them to even buy a bag of bread, not even a loaf of bread.

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

So this companion comes to the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam after he thought about it, you know, it's a bit too far as they say, I'm sick and tired of poverty. And he felt the pressure of poverty. So I thought about it, what more and what better Can I ask for to get to the problem? homosassa and ask him to ask Allah azza wa jal to open the doors and the gates of visit to me say what do to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the one that has the golden key to the dose of Allah subhana wa tada for the purposes of our Salah Eliza is gonna respond back to him. You can't ask for anything better than that.

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

Login. This is your ticket. This is your ticker Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is the as the property sorcerer, ask Allah subhanaw taala to respond back to him. So he did. He went to the Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim and he said to my messenger of Allah

00:30:15--> 00:30:17

ask Allah to make me rich

00:30:20--> 00:30:42

good one ask Allah to make me rich ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to open the doors of visit to me send me saucer looks at me says but I'm concerned if I do and Allah subhanaw taala accepts my daughter and you know a lot of other will except my daughter I'm concerned that after lots of penalty that opens up the doors of risk to any become rich. We're not gonna see him anymore he's no no no, no, no, no, no, no, no typical one. You know?

00:30:43--> 00:31:19

Give me this. Give for your sake. Yeah, Allah make me wealthy. So how could that for your sake, Allah this. That's the initial. That's the original intention. Always. Yeah, make me wealthy so I could get back into religion. This campaign is what everyone else always say a lot. Make me wealthy so I can get back to your religion. Maybe I'll pass or maybe I'll fail. I can't be assertive and to say you know what, suddenly I'm gonna pass No. And this is a companion. This is a companion. Who was the lead boy not some typical email me a Padstow Greenock. Allah gamba is led by the problem. So he is living during the time in Iran.

00:31:20--> 00:31:28

In the presence of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he can't get anything more spiritual and more motivational than this time a moment.

00:31:29--> 00:31:37

Or messenger of Allah ask Allah to make me wealthy. And also said one concern, I feel that if Allah subhanaw taala doesn't make you wealthy, we're not going to see him anymore.

00:31:38--> 00:31:57

I guarantee I assure you, that insha Allah if you ask Allah subhanaw taala make me wealthy, I'll be more entertained of Allah subhanaw taala I'll be more active in the deen of Allah azza wa jal. I'll be more devoted, in the deen of Allah subhanaw taala and I'm gonna use the word Allah subhanaw taala grant me back to his religion,

00:31:59--> 00:32:08

Celebi, sallAllahu wasallam the one that if you asked Allah Allah subhanaw taala will never reject his da he raised his hands and said, Oh Allah give this man wolf.

00:32:10--> 00:32:47

What happened? Obviously, Allah subhanaw taala accept the data of the Prophet Muhammad SAW salah and this man from being so poor, from a valley of cattle, a valley of shape, a valley of camels, a valley of cows, the value of goats law Akbar, this man is becoming a millionaire. He was so poor didn't even have money to even buy a loaf of bread. Now he's becoming a multi millionaire, one of the most obvious companions. And now the test comes. The big test is when Allah subhanaw taala opened the doors and gates of provision What happened? distraction.

00:32:48--> 00:32:59

from five trays, dropped to four, from four to three, three to two, two to one, one to none, Allahu Akbar, see that distraction,

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

if it was wrong,

00:33:04--> 00:33:10

or if it was, if it was a taboo, or if it was evil, or unacceptable for him to become old enough

00:33:12--> 00:33:24

to make this man wealthy, it's something recommended something commendable that allows you to be wealthy, but it's how you deal with it. It's how you got better if it was wrong and

00:33:25--> 00:33:44

to make this man wealthy, but the problem is the one that make this man wealthy, which means that Allah subhanaw taala wants you to be successful in your world. Allah wants you to be successful in your home, Allah wants you to be successful in your life. So here's the problem. I'm not gonna lie it was Allah. He accepted and he made the offer this meant to be worthless, Allah made the movie, but then distraction.

00:33:45--> 00:34:00

When it shouldn't be the opposite. This man should be more closer to Allah, you will put Aloma grich name should be more thankful to Allah thankful which way you pray more to Allah subhanaw taala Thank you which way you give Motorola Zoda thankful which way you become more devoted in the deen of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:34:02--> 00:34:07

So the price start to drop five to four to three to two to one to none.

00:34:09--> 00:34:09

And then

00:34:10--> 00:34:38

when it's time for the cat in the visa Law Center, we still have this a cap collectors. And then we saw Salamis to send Zakat collectors to all those wealthy people. They'll calculate evaluate their worth, and then they'll say okay, you've got this amount of money they have to pay zakat. So let me saw some sense one of the data collectors to this companion. Which one, the one that came to the problem homosassa and this is a true story for you information about like something I've dreamed about is that I'm related to a tea tonight and No.

00:34:40--> 00:34:59

Nobody saw Salaam sent one of the cat connectors to go and collect a cat from this man. When there's a cat collector he is the messenger of the Messenger of Allah Rasul Allah Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. When he arrived this man, he told them I'm here to collect your socket. let me calculate it evaluator and I'll tell you how much is the cat

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

So what was his response? He said No way.

00:35:03--> 00:35:19

I'm not a Kaffir This is jizya you know the text that you impose upon the non believers if they live under the protection of Islam and Muslims, that is not Zakat is a jizya. This tax and no one has any right to take any text from me. So get out of here Get lost.

00:35:21--> 00:35:32

Subhan Allah, what happened to the commitment that you get to the Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah prior to you becoming wealthy and that's why when he came to the Prophet Muhammad SAW someone asked the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam for his daughter because of the

00:35:33--> 00:35:36

wealthy, you will pull

00:35:37--> 00:35:47

you up poor or add on has to be common. You have nothing because of the doubt of the problem homosassa me became rich

00:35:49--> 00:36:11

that Allah subhanaw taala does not reject that he became rich and not only became distracted from Allah subhanaw taala that made you wealthy after you were poor. And now it's time for the cat a lot of adult Allison's or the problem. hermosa Simpsons is a cat collected to collect as a cat from me and he said this this year, okay, so lots of panel data reveals a verse speaking about him.

00:36:12--> 00:36:27

Some people when they want something, and then they ask us first we'll give it to them. And then when it comes to implementing what lots of power wants them to implement, they become an edge on an edge. They don't wanna act upon it.

00:36:28--> 00:36:39

So when you heard that verse, he knew that Allah subhanaw taala is referring to him. He came with his the cap of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the process and rejected it. Do you think we need your money?

00:36:41--> 00:36:51

You think we need your money? When Allah subhanaw taala imposes that 2.5% of the capital needed think a lot need your money. You are the one who's got $10,000 $100,000 a million dollars

00:36:52--> 00:37:03

Do you think I'm gonna need your money when you give 2.4% of you for the sake of Allah and its obligation to quality give two purposes you think for one second I need your money if that's what you think you thought wrong.

00:37:04--> 00:37:06

So this companion is running to the problem

00:37:07--> 00:37:12

all messenger of Allah take more as a cat and then we saw some said take it back

00:37:14--> 00:37:30

after Allah subhanaw taala recommended in the Chronicle and now you want to come and give it Did you forget where you came from? When we When did you forget your background now after lots of panels exposed you know you want to come bring us a cup take it back

00:37:32--> 00:37:34

shameful is done

00:37:35--> 00:37:35

well

00:37:37--> 00:37:51

I'm just thinking about it. Some have just seen that ship is my inner she's my buddy Imagine you are one person that comes to the problem has gotten lost in the process until you take it back.

00:37:53--> 00:37:53

Just think about it

00:37:55--> 00:37:56

will lie it just

00:37:59--> 00:38:03

simply look you got your rejected your reject

00:38:04--> 00:38:05

love

00:38:07--> 00:38:13

and he rejected you the proper la salatu salam and the rejection of the Prophet Muhammad Salah is rejection from Allah subhanaw taala

00:38:15--> 00:38:19

what emulation What a disgrace.

00:38:21--> 00:38:23

And so Pamela It was a disgraceful moment for this man.

00:38:24--> 00:38:33

And the process Allah would refuse to accept his Zakat, the tea, he tried time and time again to come and give us a gun to the problem homosassa of the process of tilling

00:38:38--> 00:38:40

I think a lot of work but

00:38:41--> 00:38:50

even that's got nothing to do with me. But so however it's it's sad. And then again, we'll try again every office in general please take one second please please take one second.

00:38:52--> 00:38:54

We don't want you to take it back. What

00:38:56--> 00:39:03

made you rich after you pool and then when you ask him for this I get that you have to be paid without anyone asking me You say this jizya take it back.

00:39:04--> 00:39:16

The professor passed away and the problem homosassa never accepted this occur. So I tried during the top of a bucket of the law that Obama could please take President Obama said no way

00:39:19--> 00:39:20

then he tried during

00:39:22--> 00:39:24

the process of rejection you want me to accept you

00:39:28--> 00:39:30

rejected you want me to accept you

00:39:31--> 00:39:32

know chop your head off.

00:39:34--> 00:39:36

That's not normal. That's from my own home.

00:39:40--> 00:39:59

But I told him the proper rejecting Do you want me to accept you? Then during the time of man, when I was a holiday came to us man and us man saw some signs of sincerity and repentance. So automatic sector spamela imagine maybe this man lived for about 20 years.

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

of of stress

00:40:04--> 00:40:17

that's what happens with poor olimex rich. So we turn our back on the loss of handlebar the one that made this rich We are an Allah subhanaw taala makes us healthy. So we turn our back on a loss of health after become healthy.

00:40:18--> 00:40:22

How many times a visit brothers in hospital will lay, they bedridden

00:40:23--> 00:40:30

and Subhanallah a miracle that lives out or makes happen. This person Mashallah is like a horse, the horse running around.

00:40:32--> 00:40:36

And during that time, I just love to read. I just love to make praise.

00:40:37--> 00:40:49

And you could see sincerity on their face repentance, but then subpanel they get up and the whole thing. That's it, they go back to the old habits, as if they're even experienced something like that. Did you forget Did you forget

00:40:51--> 00:41:00

where you were and where you are now. Phase One, when Allah subhanaw taala takes something from you. It's a test. But when Allah gives you it's a bigger test.

00:41:01--> 00:41:32

So when a live zoologist gives you off, that's a test. When Allah subhanaw taala is giving you her that's a test. When Allah subhanaw taala has given you a good reputation. That's also a test when you're making your business successful. That's also a test. When Allah subhanaw taala is giving you healthy kids. That's also a test. When I'm giving you a good Roger's wife that's also it is advice sister when am I guilty? I watch this husband that's also a test. Leon Dora mother, alone as the problem Hamilton law sentences for Allah subhanaw taala to see, what do you do? How do you react?

00:41:34--> 00:41:37

What do you do? And how do you react? Are you going to be appreciative?

00:41:39--> 00:41:45

Are you going to be grateful or you're going to turn your back on Allah subhanaw taala so you know what this is from? sweat.

00:41:47--> 00:42:00

Have you heard of coral? When Allah subhanaw taala speaks about Pharaoh. He speaks about for the Koran. When Allah speaks about the people of the Hellfire, a lot of haotong say you'll be in the Hellfire with Corona and

00:42:03--> 00:42:21

Allah subhanaw taala speaks about Corona Khurana Karim that he was so wealthy, extremely wealthy. It the he needed a gang of people to say I needed some of us costs about 40 men just to carry the keys to his to his safes to his treasure to his Treasury. He needed a gang of men.

00:42:23--> 00:42:27

He needed a gang are meant to carry the keys to his sacred treasure.

00:42:28--> 00:42:43

And then Allah subhanaw taala destroyed him. Because Allah subhanaw taala said masala celebsmoney said in mo ot to Allah and me are acquired all this word from knowledge. So Allah subhanho wa Taala opened up the ground from beneath him is swallowed up

00:42:44--> 00:42:46

straightaway in his own home

00:42:48--> 00:43:00

with all his walls with all these guards, with all these servants and maids and all the walls of the palaces and the gold and this and that Allah subhanaw taala opened the grant just right beneath his feet swallowed him by

00:43:01--> 00:43:02

you in our oral

00:43:04--> 00:43:06

histories mentioned the Quranic verses.

00:43:08--> 00:43:12

Before he was wealthy, he was from amongst the most righteous people on the face of this earth.

00:43:13--> 00:43:19

So righteous that people used to mention him as an example become locker room.

00:43:20--> 00:43:37

become like the righteousness of Cologne become what is locker room become honest locker don't become respectful locker room. So look at what happened. What happened what happened when Allah subhanaw taala tested him with the wolf. He became a disbeliever so Pamela wolf can be

00:43:39--> 00:43:41

a gift. And also wolf can be

00:43:42--> 00:44:00

a big test. That's why my brother and my sister for lots of panels are given a wolf. Is it distracting me away from a lot of panel data or attracting with Allah azza wa jal? Is it getting closer to Allah subhanaw taala? Or is a distancing away from Allah azza wa jal I'll give you an example of the Prophet Muhammad Allah.

00:44:01--> 00:44:04

The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam is to pray the lights

00:44:06--> 00:44:14

and the base of Allah Selim is to pray the lights, how long not to know Allah before for about 20 minutes we'll get up right to rock art through

00:44:16--> 00:44:17

on camera.

00:44:20--> 00:44:24

And then you boast you take a selfie and you put on Facebook that I am the Lord until I am

00:44:26--> 00:44:47

so proud of resolve. Mashallah, if right there? No, no, the theme of the Prophet Muhammad SAW some different tools, something that you've never experienced another ability of experiencing the theme of the problem homosassa was to the extent that problem homosassa will continue standing until his legs start shivering from a long standing, have ever experienced something longer.

00:44:48--> 00:44:49

I'm telling you.

00:44:50--> 00:44:54

We're talking about like two three hours standing in water until the next talk show.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

So I suppose the problem homosassa moments in Java, why the burden is on

00:45:00--> 00:45:23

Allah subhanaw taala had already guaranteed you forgiveness. And that's the greatest gift of course, nothing can buy forgiveness. So what's the problem homosassa forgiveness or messenger of Allah what a burden yourself with such burden that you continue standing the night every single night until your legs get swollen until you start to shiver over hours and hours of standing.

00:45:25--> 00:45:30

Or messenger Allah, why the burden you suffer the loss of penalties really forgiving your past sins and the future.

00:45:32--> 00:45:37

So what are the problem hum sauce and reply? He said alayhi salatu was Salam. If that's the case,

00:45:38--> 00:45:49

if Allah subhanaw taala really Forgive me my sins, the past and the future. Then Fela kuno Abdullah Shakira, then I should be a thankful servant, Allah Zoda if that's what Allah has given me.

00:45:51--> 00:45:58

A mother Forgive me just because, again, if Allah had Forgive me, that means I need to shout louder. So on of gratitude and appreciation.

00:46:00--> 00:46:16

Imagine imagine that debris comes down to you and says, look, you have hammer the hammer, the hasami said Allah had forgiven your sins. The good news came from Eliza to you, Allah had forgiven you. I guarantee you the next day, we're gonna get up.

00:46:19--> 00:46:20

I'm gonna relax.

00:46:23--> 00:46:29

If we get guarantees that Allah has given us, if we get guarantees that life will probably stop trying Come on.

00:46:31--> 00:46:35

That's how weak we are. And sometimes that's how corrupt our mentalities

00:46:37--> 00:46:46

look 100 level got forgiven after Ramadan, everyone's Panama happens here events be handled or forgiven in the month of Ramadan.

00:46:47--> 00:46:49

What are you talking about? If Allah had

00:46:50--> 00:47:02

appreciated the last soldier, you need to be more grateful to Allah subhanaw taala you should get closer to not distance yourself from Allah subhanaw taala This is the time we get closer to Allah if Allah had given you something, you should thank him

00:47:05--> 00:47:12

open up the gates obviously given us all his wealth to you shouldn't be more grateful to Allah subhanaw taala not walk away from a lion? Is that how it works?

00:47:14--> 00:47:17

That someone gives you a gift and every time he gives a gift you spit in the face.

00:47:19--> 00:47:21

So every time I give you a gift, you stop calling me.

00:47:22--> 00:47:36

And next time I give you a gift, you walk away from me. Next time I'm going to give you a gift, you're going to walk all over me. You know, it's tough, you had the gift, I'm not gonna give you anything anymore. And not only the other gifts I had given me given back to me. That's how it's gonna work.

00:47:37--> 00:47:51

For one, we've been grateful to Allah subhanaw taala with all the good things that Allah subhanaw taala had been given us or turn away from Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's why my brothers and my sisters is your Wolf and attraction to allow distraction away from Allah subhanaw taala

00:47:52--> 00:48:04
