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

Everything you read in Sharia

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

Possibly Hajj will be voided this year.

00:03:40--> 00:03:41

When you go on to Hajj

00:03:43--> 00:03:53

Unless Alicia told us I'll give you one example. She said one night the prophets Allah Salam prayed so much that his feet begin to crack

Allah has already forgiven any mistakes that you will make any sense that you could you make commit in the future Allah has already forgiven it.

00:05:29--> 00:05:34

And the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam said something very interesting to his wife Alicia.

00:05:36--> 00:05:38

I forgot who Hakuna Abdullah supporter,

00:05:40--> 00:05:45

00:06:05--> 00:06:06

Let me give you

00:06:08--> 00:06:09

a hadith and narration

00:06:12--> 00:06:13

that might

00:06:16--> 00:06:18

give you pause to think

00:06:20--> 00:06:28

this has this narration as two narrations both of them multifocal malaise Bukhari Muslim Hadith.

00:06:30--> 00:06:39

And you know, the Hadith you know, we can we can call it a lot of Hadith and what Abu Bakr did, or the law and what Omar did or the line,

00:06:40--> 00:06:41

but this hadith

00:06:42--> 00:06:52

I will bucket it and do it Omar didn't do it. Abdul Rahman and didn't do it. The Prophet didn't do the laser that was on the profits do it. Sahaba didn't do it.

00:06:54--> 00:06:57

Who did it? Orange alone, man.

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


00:07:01--> 00:07:02

in the Hadith,

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


00:07:06--> 00:07:11

buggy, you know, I'm trying to be polite. The lady of the night, harlot

00:07:12--> 00:07:13


00:07:14--> 00:07:21

And this hadith narrated this two narrations first, this man, you know, had the

00:07:22--> 00:07:25

he was on a journey and became very thirsty.

00:07:27--> 00:07:28

And he saw well,

00:07:29--> 00:07:31

he went into well, iniquitous thirst.

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

But when he came out of the well he saw a dog

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

licking his tongue on the earth.

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

And he said

00:07:44--> 00:07:47

this dog is suffering the same thing I'm suffering from

00:07:48--> 00:07:49

and when in the well

00:07:51--> 00:07:51

and gave

00:07:53--> 00:07:54

water to a dog.

00:07:55--> 00:08:01

Who is this habit? No profit No. was the original Amen.

00:08:03--> 00:08:05

Gay water to dog what's his motive?

00:08:07--> 00:08:09

He read some idle Quran.

00:08:10--> 00:08:12

Hadith of the Prophet No.

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

Nobody said

00:08:16--> 00:08:20

his dog is suffering from the same thing I'm suffering from

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

and again wanted to a dog.

00:08:24--> 00:08:30

And the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam said about this man three things. Shaka Allah Allahu

00:08:31--> 00:08:34

Allah was grateful for what he did. thankful

00:08:36--> 00:08:39

to God for God for Allah who are ne forgave that man.

00:08:41--> 00:08:46

At the whole agenda of color who agenda in the incident to gender.

00:08:47--> 00:08:48

Allah was grateful

00:08:49--> 00:08:53

you forgave him his sin in the incident agenda.

00:08:55--> 00:08:55

Think about it.

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

Motivated that man.

00:09:00--> 00:09:03

was no iPhone Quran he didn't hold Hadith.

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

There was something within him.

00:09:10--> 00:09:21

And this buddy, same thing, she saw a dog and she went in the in the well and took out a shoe put water in the shoe

00:09:22--> 00:09:31

and came out of the well and gave the dog water. And Allah subhanaw taala The Prophet said that I love her gave her

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

you know that reminds me of

00:09:35--> 00:09:39

when the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam finished his night journey.

00:09:40--> 00:09:41

He was very thirsty.

00:09:43--> 00:09:44

And he was offered

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

some milk

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

and some wine.

00:09:51--> 00:09:53

In those days why wasn't prohibited.

00:09:54--> 00:09:58

So the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam he chose the milk

00:09:59--> 00:10:00


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

sent to put Jabril laser that was unanswered and I think this is the key going back to this hadith that I said, Remember what Brother Chavez said was correct.

00:10:11--> 00:10:13

And Hamdulillah he led the DACA live fitrah

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

00:10:19--> 00:10:23

Praise be to Allah who guided you all Muhammad to the fifth

00:10:24--> 00:10:26

to the very nature

00:10:28--> 00:10:31

had you chosen the wind your own man would have gone astray. Petra

00:10:33--> 00:10:47

that woman the buggy, the prostitute. She wasn't thinking about no I had she wasn't thinking about let me give water to this dog so that I can go to Jana. Let me give water to the dog that Allah forgive me my sin. No.

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

It was fifth.

00:10:53--> 00:10:55

Something deep within.

00:10:57--> 00:11:01

So I close my message today is very simple. Allah knows.

00:11:02--> 00:11:05

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

But you know what?

Deep within

they feel for the people who suffer

00:11:44--> 00:11:52

There is something within

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

the say, let me let me help mankind.

00:12:14--> 00:12:15

If Allah can forgive a prostitute,

00:12:27--> 00:12:28

00:12:36--> 00:12:40

But today, we're talking about an institution called Edna

00:12:42--> 00:12:47

this virus have stopped us from coming together, collectively.

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

00:13:21--> 00:13:24

Ignore does it have all of these magnificent programs?

00:13:26--> 00:13:27

Let me leave you with one thought.

00:13:29--> 00:13:36

Most of you know by now I know many of you know by now that I was a student at New York University. Majored in mathematics.

00:13:37--> 00:13:47

And I understand mathematics studied. I learned it. I learned advanced mathematics, calculus, trigonometry, algebra, all of that.

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

And I've come to the conclusion

00:13:51--> 00:14:01

that what the Prophet sallallahu sallam said is so deep. You heard it. You hear it at every fundraiser, the NACA Salmela Abdon. In South Africa,

00:14:02--> 00:14:11

wealth is never decreased by given Satoko one lies true. While lie I swear by Allah. It's true.

00:14:12--> 00:14:15

And you know what you have to think about it. When you spin,

00:14:16--> 00:14:21

you give $1,000 for Aetna or $10,000 for Aetna or 100,000 Donald's

00:14:23--> 00:14:29

you got to look at it as a lesson Quran as I mentioned when that 20 Come in hiding for the unforeseen, whatever

00:14:31--> 00:14:33

you spend, have good is for yourself.

00:14:34--> 00:14:36

Don't look at it as spending.

00:14:38--> 00:14:41

Rather, looking at it as a deposit.

00:14:43--> 00:14:44

You go to the bank,

00:14:45--> 00:14:46

you have a savings account.

00:14:48--> 00:14:50

You put money in a savings account.

00:14:51--> 00:14:53

You know, it's there for you.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

When you give sadaqa

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

Give it today, no doubt.

00:15:02--> 00:15:03

Don't be stingy.

00:15:05--> 00:15:15

See, the proof of these bonuses is the Prophet peace and blessings be upon them. Leslie la Rasulullah he is Salah Salem che and Kata for call Allah. The Prophet never, ever said no.

00:15:16--> 00:15:23

He never said no people ask him, he never said no. Because he understands

00:15:24--> 00:15:25

it's only a deposit.

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

You're going to get it back.

00:15:29--> 00:15:36

And Allah is going to multiply it in such a way that you spend something so small. It will grow into size of a mountain.

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

That's the way it is

00:15:40--> 00:16:03

for it, you know, they say about athletes like Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan. They were so good. And they used to say, the left they're all on the field. Would that mean that means that they gave everything they could, again, a basketball game, a football game, a baseball game, they left it out on the field, they get everything they had.

00:16:04--> 00:16:12

When you see the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him, literally. He gave everything that he had you study Sahaba to give what they had.

00:16:14--> 00:16:18

You think about that. When the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam died.

00:16:20--> 00:16:20

Would he have left?

00:16:22--> 00:16:23

million dollars $2 million.

00:16:24--> 00:16:25


00:16:26--> 00:16:26


00:16:27--> 00:16:28

his weapon

00:16:30--> 00:16:31

a white new

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

in some land that they gave away in Saudi.

00:16:36--> 00:16:37

He left they're all in the field.

00:16:38--> 00:16:39

We thought

00:16:40--> 00:16:46

we're gonna die. Human beings die Kudo. Lovcen Vikatan. Now Petia all tastes of death.

00:16:47--> 00:16:53

But institutions shall live on after us. Measured harm is their

00:16:54--> 00:17:05

profits mastered is their measure the OXA is there were gone. The people that built them are gone. But it's a less than legacy.

00:17:06--> 00:17:14

I ask Allah bless Edna to be around for 1000s and 1000s and 1000s of years.

00:17:15--> 00:17:22

Probably will not going to be around to see it. But they will still be doing good. Still benefiting the people

00:17:24--> 00:17:27

seeking reward from Allah on the one hand,

00:17:28--> 00:17:48

but on the other hand doing it because it's right is the fifth. It's in our very nature. Allah bless you to have it. May Allah bless you. I love you. And love the work of Edna anonymous components. Keep up the great work. Salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
