or testify that there's no god except Allah testify that Mohammed is the problem the Messenger of Allah brothers and my sisters in Islam, we thank 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. Allah Karim. Allah subhanho wa Taala tala had promised to preserve it in natrona. Zenda dechra were in Allahu Allah Hafiz only the ones that had revealed Veronica name and we shall preserve the beginning. So the Polonica name is de le sacrifical. Allah subhana wa Taala had promised to preserve and that's why the name has been preserved from the time that the laws of hanadama had revealed to
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam up until now to the day of gentlemen the Quranic aim 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. 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 allows him to handle data had spoken is the truth and only truth.
Allah subhana wa tada says, na na na kousaka Sanam. cosas when I read to Mohammed the best of stories, so Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that not only Karim and Allah narrates to us stories of the past, and the stories or 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 those 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 were you just to entertain yourself and well that was a very long story. No, no, no, no, no, no. Allah subhana wa tada mentions those stories in the Chronicle 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 the stories mentioned the sort of the column in Surat Al column. Allah subhana wa tada makes mention of a story of a previous nation, a family that lots of adult Allah wants us to learn out of that story. And obviously been mentioned the chronic anemia is a story in the past story that took place, an event that took place before the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah subhanaw taala said prophets and messengers from the time he said, The time
between Mohammed is over 124,000 prophecy from the last panel Donaldson
starts with Adam angels Muhammad, 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 Bella Bella wanna 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 southern clam in the trustworthy and the honest man. But when the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam came and said to them wishing and Allah, they start to point the fingers
of Prophet Muhammad SAW Solomon accused
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 Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim never lived in the visa Plaza never fabricated a lie 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 Nirvana whom we are testing the people of kurush the way we tested us Harbhajan Allah subhanaw taala is telling us as hard
Agenda, the people of the agenda and we'll all know when we say the word agenda. 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 Morocco servants not ours has ever seen
now he's ever heard of, and not even a man 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 is the story of us having gender what's so significant and so important about the story of gender? Well, it's a story about a family, five brothers, five brothers,
sons of a righteous man
who owns a beautiful garden. Now Allah subhana wa tada referred to as Jenna. 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 anodyne is bounty upon me I 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 you sweat hard and 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 love it and give it to him. Allah gave it to you. It's almost
and 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 takes something away from you. It's a test when Allah takes you off. It's a test. When Allah subhanaw taala takes you home. It's a 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, this is a big test. I'm weak. This is 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 will, when Allah gives you influence when Allah subhanaw taala gives you power. What do you do with it?
took his oath 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 Allah subhanho wa Taala testing to see what he's gonna do. But when Allah gives you you've got something in front of you he
Allah gives you what the test you What are you gonna do with it? So don't think when I was making Wolfie cunnamulla because Mashallah you so beautiful and smart and hardworking person know,
Allah gave you a wolf the tissue
to the extent the worth of people in the hereafter will stand in front of them. 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 that would have wished to be poor in this dunya
loadsa Ravana Jamaica Swathi would rather be poor and not be questioned in this world than having this was the big question ever.
saw my brothers in Islam, my sisters in Islam, when I might take something away from you, it's a test when Allah gives you 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 one thing to test. What's this test Allah Subhana Allah gave this righteous man and father a lot of wealth, beautiful guidance. 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.
from Egypt, Palestine, all Arabs originally from Yemen.
So this righteous man who this beautiful garden that Allah subhanaw taala, blessed him. 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 gap to pay 2.5% with Allah except two people are negotiating for 4% as if I was waiting for him, as if I was waiting for you to go and give him that money. I will need your money. That's our reason. It's on people's minds. As if I was waiting for their money, Allah doesn't he doesn't need your money doesn't need your car doesn't need your car doesn't he? Doesn't he doesn't need anything around you. You need Allah.
So what do you 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 poor and the needy,
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 and say, I'm gonna give you $3 when you make a million bucks, come to me 330 grand, let me see how far you gonna go.
100 bucks, I'll give you $100 I'll give you 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 sort of your let me say how brave you are.
That's when the bravery comes in. When you've got a lot of money in your pool, got 100 bucks and I get $50 for the sake of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah will accept the model, the one that gave 50 million because the one has got 50 million got another 50 million. You've got 100% here 50 for the sake of Allah likes it.
So he's to give 130 the poor and the needy 130 his family back invested into the business into the garden. 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. This is where he starts to harvest the crops this way it gets to you. So 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
is a generous man and the new that this generous man at the end of every season he gives out a third of his wealth.
But this righteous man passed away
in Bellona home camera Bella knows how Belgian big test and he left behind five boys five sons
and then some handle on 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 the nearly a third of our business third of our wealth sir of our crops third of our yield goes to the point that 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 in
five of them sat down.
It's axamer layers, layers, layers, layers behind it layers
when the father passed away and then Mashallah the business
and then the start to have more access into the business. Some narration say that didn't even know how much their father used to even donate. But then they realized Allahu Akbar, 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 over this 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
So the if
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 work 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 wealth, a third of our yield to those poor and needy, that these people have no rights, Mr. Wolf, we're not going to continue with what our 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 subhanho wa Taala this and there's an erection 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 families to do that's what loves blessing us because we give back to Allah subhana wa Tada.
Because, well, you look good and you toughen you strong. No, no, no, Allah is blessing us because we give back to Allah azza wa jal with a knife for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It is Ramona Hamas behind
Mona McBain 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, more vegetables to the point that needs a normal. We're not gonna allow this to happen.
We have more rights over this home than anyone else. Why should we even give it to that strangers? What do we get out of them?
And in the middle brothers objecting. So they threatened do they say the either with us or against us?
against a foe, but he doesn't agree to work by 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 the end of the hills outnumbered. So what did they decide they say that 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 from afar because they've been used What a crazy father used to do he's crazy to them he's crazy Of course. You know it is these days. When you pray you crazy
when you keep away from the heroin you crazy
when you don't take from the doll, and you don't lie to him You crazy but that's how it is. When you go to the dole Mashallah shelter is smart. No, he's not smart. He's a lawyer.
He's a deceiver. But that's how it is. When you come to the lesson right now you're crazy You should be out there somewhere else Gotta get to the movies. So Pamela test but I
mentioned this to them the way we had tested
us Hi, Bill, Jana agenda. So what did they plan on what 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 poor, the needy rock star 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. I wanted to make sure they pick all the fruits and the vegetables before the point the knitting come to the farm. So if they do come to the farm, the farm nothing. That was their plan of law
to Hardaway from the poor and the needy, and deprive them from what the father used to give them. I wonder the father is to do that because he's
well known Allah says, that did not even make any exemption. No exceptions to anyone
that didn't say in our Echo, we'll make out of the hundreds of others 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, they want to take the entire thing for themselves, their families to give a third third 3% these guys don't even want to give anything
for Papa laiho
anymore so that night with have planned and plotted an A grade Nemo to the poor, normal to the needy.
They decided to get sleep early and wake up early before the break of dawn and go work on the farm again.
All 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 Allah sent upon the farm, a disaster the 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 and that was the plan this
disorder, they slipped early about the disorder 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 I
said, that did not even make any exception. It's not like I said, I can just drop it from 33%. Let's drop it from a third market. Fifth 10 04 powerful a former rahbek alumna, Mo was slave
preparing themselves to wake up early in the morning, before the break of dawn said the gang collect the you. Allah subhanaw taala said we sent upon the farm and they got an A disaster for us. Sorry, it was a garden
early before the break of dawn the
Fruits before the morning before the poor and the needy comes through before the poor and the needy come to the farm before the poor and the needy come to the garden. So they wake each other up. And they come in kuntum Solomon

They got up right in the middle of the night, getting themselves ready to get to the farm and to get to the garden for them to collect the yield before the poor and the needy come to the garden as the poor in the Middle East.
