MD, Dr. Melissa Nia told me about Oprah is due to Allah subhana wa tada and please be upon
or testify that there's no god except Allah Christopher the Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah brothers and my sisters in Islam we think Allah subhanho wa Taala for this beautiful blessing gathering that we get together for the sake of Allah and to learn more about the book of Allah the Quran Karim, Allah subhana wa Taala had promised to preserve it in natrona, Zenda dechra were in Allahu Allah Hafiz are the ones that had revealed the Veronica name and we shall preserve the beginning. So the Polonica name is the only Sacred Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala had promised to preserve and that's why the name has been preserved from the time that loss of handled Allah had
revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam up until now to the day of gentlemen the Parana Karim is the book of Allah, the words of Allah and everything in the Quran. The Quran is not 100% correct? It's 1,000,000,000% correct. And again, everything in the Quranic game is not 100% Greg is 1,000,000,000% correct. It is the book of Allah the words of Allah and everything that loves him how know Donna had spoken is the truth and only truth.
Allah subhana wa tada says na na na kousaka Sanam? cosas winner right to Mohammed the best of stories so Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions and not only Karim and Allah narrates to us stories of the past. And the stories the laws of aerodynamics mentioned a true stories that did take place, stories of the past. We've covered the stories of the prophets and messengers in this new series we'll be covering different stories of the past. And that's not necessarily to be good people could be good people and bad people. But our stories are lots of annata had made mentioned Napoleonic idiom. And the reason that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of the stories in the Quran again,
not for you just to enjoy the stories, but for the purpose of you learning from the stories what are the lessons that you get to take from the stories Allah subhanaw taala is not mentioning that source for you just to entertain Israel and well that was a very long story. No, no, no, no, no no. Allah subhana wa tada mentions those stories in the Quran can aim for you to learn lessons out of those stories.
And tonight inshallah we'll be talking about the story of us horrible Jenna as Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to them the people of the garden. And this story is mentioned the sort of the column in Surah Al column, where Allah subhana wa tada makes mention of a story of a previous nation, a family, the loss of adult Allah wants us to learn out of that story. And obviously been mentioned no chronic anemia is a story in the past sorry, that took place, an event that took place before the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Allah subhanaw taala sent prophets and messengers from the time he said, The time
between Mohammed is over 124,000 prophets of Allah Donaldson
starts with Adam and Judah Mohammed, the first proper messenger is Adam the last proper messenger and not proper message.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran the Quran
in Bellona home camera, Ballona us have an agenda. So Allah subhanaw taala is saying that we are testing testing them. And the scholars say testing them is referring to the people of Quraysh that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam had emerged from amongst them in the bisazza kurachi from his from the people of Christ and Nabi sallallahu. wasallam is from the tribe of Christ. He was born and raised in Mecca, and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is from amongst them than I used to call him a solder column in the trustworthy and the honest man, but when the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam came and said to them, wish you and Allah they start to point the fingers
of the Prophet Mohammed Salim and accuse the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam of being a lawyer, deceiver Michonne fortune teller. This is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before the revelation. I mean, the honest and trustworthy after the revelation, this honest and untrustworthy, how does that make sense? This man does not even lie on the creation of Allah Little lamb for him to lie on the cradle Allah subhanho wa Taala the Amazons lm never lied in the recent laws have never fabricated the law on a human being. How about the Prophet Mohammed Salim even fabric Allah and Allah Subhana Allah
so Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying in Bellona home, we are testing the people of the way we tested us. Hi Bill Jana. So Allah subhanaw taala is telling us as having done
Other people have the agenda and we're all now when we say the word gender, we understand that as paradise. Yes, gender is paradise, but also the word gender in Arabic literally means a beautiful garden. A beautiful garden. So Jenna means a beautiful garden. So if you have a very nice beautiful forest or garden, you can call it gender because Allah subhanaw taala referred to beautiful goddess on the face of this earth as gender. But to us when we say the word gender will refer to the paradise that Allah subhanaw taala credit for the righteous believers in which the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam says Allah is saying that prepared for more righteous servants not eyes had ever
seen now he's ever heard of, and not even a mind can even imagine. Imagine of the most beautiful garden on the face of this earth. What Allah has prepared for you as a righteous believer is a lot better than what you could even imagine. So the word gender, the word gender means a beautiful garden of harmony. Jana, the owners of the beautiful garden on the face of this earth,
the owners of the beautiful garden on the face of this earth. what's
what's so significant, and so important about the story of us have an agenda. Well, it's a story about a family, five brothers, five brothers,
sons of a righteous man
who owned a beautiful garden. The loss of Hannah Watada referred to as gender everything that you could imagine of Allah subhanaw taala blessed the owner of this garden in his garden,
but the owner of the garden the father, he was a righteous man.
Because of his righteousness
he appreciated the loss of Hannah Tyler's bounty upon him yeah breach of appreciated the loss of $100 gift upon him. What gift is Allah subhanaw taala gave him wolf
when Allah subhana wa tada gives you that's a gift from Allah upon you not because Allah is sweat, harden you smile, and you work smart. And you know you work hard. Before everything else, Allah subhanaw taala gave it to you because there's a lot more smarter people than you and I and people work harder than you and I'm not gonna give it to him, Allah gave it to you. It's Allah subhanaw taala.
Allah subhanaw taala blessed this father, this man with this risk with this provision, Allah gave a beautiful garden, big massive garden, that everything that you could imagine of fruits and vegetables existed in the garden, a blessing. And you know, when Allah subhanaw taala take something away from you. It's a test when Allah takes you off. It's a test. When Allah subhanaw taala takes it take test when Allah subhanaw taala takes your family away from you. It's a test. But when Allah gives you it's a bigger test. Our monster is the one Allah take something away from me I'm poor, there's a big test. I'm weak. There's a big test. Yes, it's a big test. What's bigger than that is
when Allah gives you when Allah gives you hope, when Allah gives you a will, when Allah gives you influence when Allah subhanaw taala gives you power, what do you do with it?
took his wealth away from him, his health away from him, his family away from him, Allah destiny, he doesn't have anything he doesn't have anything to lose anymore. So lots of hands on testing to see what he's gonna do. But when Allah gives you you've got something in front of you he
gives you what the test you want to do with it. So don't think when he was I was making
Mashallah beautiful and smart and hardworking person know, Allah gave you a wolf the tissue
to the extent the water people in the hereafter was done, the proper lies are done and after what they see from Allah subhana wa tada which Allah who kissed them ever every single dollar and every single cent that every single world, they would have wished to be poor in this dunya
What did you make us wealthy would rather be poor, and not be questioned over this wealth than having this water because I never
saw my brothers in Islam, my sisters in Islam, when I'm gonna take something away from you, it's a test when Allah gives you it's a bigger test. And Allah subhanaw taala mentions us having gender the people of the gender the owners of the gender, this beautiful garden. No, we're children of a righteous father that Allah subhanho wa Taala tested him in noble Oh, no.
And that's what Allah says. We tested them the way we tested the owners of the gender. It's a test. Allah gave him wanting to test. What's this test? Allah Subhana Allah gave this righteous man and father a lot of wealth, beautiful gardens, and most of the scholars say he was like, in Yemen. That's where all the Arabs originate from. Arabs originally from Yemen, not from Lebanon.
Not from Egypt, Palestine, all Arabs originate from Yemen.
So this righteous man with this beautiful garden that lots of handle without investing, he was located in Yemen. And he had this beautiful garden.
And not only a beautiful garden, Allah subhanho wa Taala is to give him a lot of crops. So by the end of the season is to have a lot of fruits and veggies.
And that's when the test comes in. So other ways to deal with that, he used to divide them into three thirds,
three thirds, one third, to the poor and the needy, Allahu Akbar 33%. For the sake of Allah, not sure what amount of the gods have to pay 2.5% with Allah except to people on a tip of our percent, as if Allah is waiting for him, as if I was waiting for you to give him that money. I will need your money. That's our reason. It's on people's mind. As if Allah is waiting for their money, and that doesn't he doesn't need your money doesn't need your security doesn't need your car doesn't he? Doesn't need you doesn't need anything around you. You need Allah.
So what do we do every time at the end of the season when the yield comes in, and you harvest the crops and the fruits and the vegetables, one third to the poor and the needy
one third for him and his family.
And one third, we'll get back into investing into his land, beautiful to three thirds, one third to the pole and then at
one third to his family.
And one third gets invested back into the business. So Pamela who does that these days? rarely, rarely. And you know, don't come to me with 100 bucks inside handle I'm gonna give for $3 when you make a million bucks, come to me 330 grand, let me see how far you're gonna go.
100 bucks, I'll give you $100 I'll give you the it's 100 bucks, it's not hard to give up under dollars. But when you've got a million bucks 10 million 100 million. Then come and give. Let me say how brave you are.
That's where the bravery comes in. When you've got a lot of money, no matter when you're poor 100 bucks and I get $50 for the sake of Allah, Allah and inshallah Allah, Allah will accept the model, the one that gets 50 million, because a woman's got 50 million got another 50 million. You've got 100% get 50 for the sake of Allah likes it.
So he's to give 130 the poor and the needy one third, his family I wanted back invested into the business into the garden. And so Pamela it became so common, he became popular amongst the poor and the needy that the new by the end of the season, they'll be lining up to get their donation. The new harvest is the end of the season is where he starts to harvest the crops this way he gets the you said the very next day, you'll have a lot of IQ of the poor and the needy people in need. People are poor, they'll come and start taking from the season then use a panel.
He's a generous man and the new that this generous man. At the end of every season, he gives out a third of his wolf.
But this righteous man passed away.
In Bellona home camera below knows how Belgian big test and he left behind five boys, five sons.
And then Subhana Allah now, who owns that garden, the five boys, he controls that garden, the five boys before it was the father. You give this to the poor and you can give this to the needy and a third of our business 33rd of our crops third of our yield gets to the poor and the needy. No one can even argue that said the big boss said no one can argue. But then after the big boss and the big father passed away What happened?
Five of them sat down.
It's XML layers, layers, layers, layers limonum was behind it. Layers limonum was behind when the father passed away and then Mashallah the business
and then the start to have more access into the business seminar. He said that didn't even know how much their father used to even donate. But then they've realized we've got a lot of wealthy a father was crazy used to give a third of a wolf to those poor and the needy were four. We have more entitlement to this and we have more rights than anyone else. What did the father used to do that? So they worked on the garden and Masha Allah, Allah subhanaw taala blessed him with a lot of fruits
with a huge volume of yield a lot of fruits and vegetables
a lot less than the E. So what did they do? They got together they said you know what soon it's the end of the season.
And soon we're gonna have a lot of fresh crops, a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables. What are we going to do? They discuss them amongst each other
between. So the four,
the five brothers are sitting down discussing amongst each other, what are we going to do this time are we going to continue on the same path as a father giving a third of our wealth back to the poor and the needy. So out of the four, sorry, out of the 544 on the same page, out of the 544 of the brothers on the same page, was on the same page that said, Our father was crazy.
And given our third of our Wolf, a third of our yield to those poor and needy, that these people have no rights, Mr. Wolf, we're not gonna continue with what my father used to do. four out of four out of the five decided not to give to the poor, the needy, except the middle brother.
Allah Subhana. Allah says in the Quran, Karim, God also to whom the middle brother, he said, No, no, no, see Allah subhanaw taala on this. And there's an original that says that the middle brother, he's the one that used to look like his father, and he's the act like his father and he carried the legacy of his father. So out of the five brothers, four of them decided not to give to the poor and the needy. Except the middle brother said, No, no, no, we need to continue with our fathers to do that. That's what loves blessing us. Because we give back to Allah subhanho wa Taala
good and you toughen you strong. No, no, no, Allah is blessing us because we give back to Allah azzawajal with a knife for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala it is Ramona Hamas bihan
Ramona McBain so amongst each other out of the five, four of them, which are the majority there's only one four of them decided no more than it for the sake of Allah. No more crops no more fruits no more
than a normal. We're not gonna allow this to happen.
We have more rights over this whole than anyone else. Why should we even give it to that strangers? What do we get out of them?
And and in the middle brothers objecting. So they threatened me they said either with us or against us
against a foe, but he doesn't agree to buy head to tag along with them. You have to tag along with his brothers. He made his statement he objected to what they were planning to do but at the end of the day his outnumbered so what did they decide? They said we are coming to the end of the season we need to do something the very next morning we're gonna say we're gonna find the big lineup and key of four people and many people will be standing in front of a farm because they've been used to What a crazy father used to do he's crazy to them he's crazy Of course. You know these these days when you pray you crazy
when you keep away from the huddle you crazy
when he doesn't take from the doll, and he don't lie to him You crazy but that's how it is when you get to the doll Mashallah shelter is smart. Now, he's not smart. He's a lawyer.
He's a deceiver. But that's how it is. When it comes to the lesson right now you crazy You should be out there somewhere else Gotta get to the movies. So Pamela test, but Allah subhanaw taala makes mention we have tested them the way we have tested.
Us Hi, Bill, Jenna. So what did they plan and plot? They said, No, no, no, no. We need to go early in the morning.
Pick our fruits and our vegetables on hot our way before the point that needed a roster farm. So they all went to sleep that night to wake up early. So the next the next day, the very next day, the very next morning, they wanted to make sure they pick all the fruits and the vegetables before the point that nearly come to the farm. So if they do come to the farm, the farm nothing that was the plan of law
to Hardaway from the poor and the needy and deprive them from what the father used to give them to the fathers to dinner because he's
well known Allah says that did not even make an exemption. No exceptions to anyone
that didn't say in our account will make out of the 100 our fathers to give a third again let's make it let's make it 10 Let's make it one out of 100 No, no, no No, no want to take that entire thing for themselves, their families to give a third third 3% these guys don't even want to give anything

They decided to get in sleep early and wake up early before the break of dawn and go work on the farm and collect
The yields collect all the fruits and the vegetables so that very next day and that very next morning when the poor and the needy comes to the farm, the farm nothing they
say they slipped early. Allah tested them. Allah subhana wa Taala sent upon the farm, a disaster that Allah destroyed the entire garden
that night. So Pamela that didn't come out of nowhere. That night. They planned and they applauded. And Allah subhanaw taala planned
to plan this
disorder, they slipped early, but they've decided before they slept. What are we gonna do tomorrow we're gonna get to the farm we're gonna get to the garden. We're gonna pick all the fruits and the yield before the point and then come the very next morning and make sure they get nothing. Nothing Nothing. It's not like Walla Walla
