Behind me, will suddenly will send me my documentation.
scholars, respected brothers, brothers and sisters, this is probably one word that can sum up the crisis of the world today in terms of health in terms of wealth in terms of social situation, then surely in the absence of Baraka in our lives,
our health, our wealth, our relationships, there isn't anything, what is
maximum output with minimum provisions, so the time might not be wrong, but the treatments in that time is great,
be too much, but the the goodness out of the
out of the meals for the day
when we look into the lives of our senses,
that I compose and compile the seal of the juice
in the duration
to meet a line and
that is in 14 days, he compiled the commentary of the team.
We can understand the commentary of one adequately and accurately and correctly and in a wholesome way, and he combined it, this is how meaningful the time was
describing the Sahaba said
describe the admission process over time, the money, you could get any amount of money from them, but you couldn't get time from the time. This is vital. This is key, this is important, I cannot just allow my time to run away. So today by and large, the shortage of abundance, but there is a shortage of goodness and blessings in what we enjoy. And one of the guaranteed ways one of the guaranteed ways of maximizing the output of what God has given us is to use our resources objectively for the deen of Allah. Every one of us has a role to play into the wheel, every one of us have to put our shoulders to the wheel. This is certainly no exception. In
the occasion of the book, there's an incident that is mentioned.
And then each one of these contribution is donation. And there was a
he stood up that night when the appeal was made, and people made the respective donations and contributions
have exhausted us impressed upon us and us motivated us that we respond to the goal of dealing with our health, wealth and resources. And by your decree and your decision. You haven't given me the financial clout and muscle that I can make a tangible donation. So what is the exhortation to the lady B minor financial standing doesn't want to do this. But I cannot imagine myself being delighted and deprived when everybody else will do them.
But I'm sitting high in glide. So I'm going to offer something to the cause, which is some tangible, but is probably the only thing that I have
regarding anyone and everyone who has offended me, who has violated me who is insulted me, who is hurt me in any way,
shape, or form, imagine
somebody says something bad, something nasty,
I don't have money, I don't have funds. I don't have anything tangible. So I'm making the skin tangible donation.
You can see it up yourself. And the second one
is contribution. And
then I pass the morning, because the flesh of the break of dawn, the Sahaba came forward, they made a contribution. And he stood on the side nothing serious to offer the message.
Would you please make yourself known? Again, didn't think the reference was the money. It will be the
last time someone donated his self esteem and his honor and his right this purse is resetting itself a CD so you want to see
me the messages are
you made a donation between you and Allah, unknown to anyone probably the first of its kind.
Because it's not the monetary definition. It's not something tangible, that we can put you on the table. But it was a commitment.
There is not reproach
to donate? Can you probably give us a convenience? We can amount quantity? And you say to them
in my possession? No, they don't rejoice that they are able to give the cheer and cry. They saw
that absolutely nothing. Why can I not help the cause?
Blame those who enjoy financial stability economically, they are solid and healthy and stable. And yet they would go and they do not support the goal for the day.
At the end, I say by online control is my life
your charity has been recorded documented amongst those challenges which have been accepted in the corporate law.
And it just means that sense of acceptance regardless of the fingers, regardless of the monetary value, it's the sense of acceptance that is fulfilling and enjoyable for a company.
And you place his hands on his head and he said Wow.
The sins of mine colossal.
They have just broken my back. We would say that it's an adolescent child. It is probably an alien spouse is probably financial financial commitment is probably political instability is probably economic volatility and a host of other things that would talk on us
In the novelty, oh my god, your
boss and my boss and myself, and an optimistic of your clemency and kindness,
actions and answers the prayer and the message is repeated, repeated and repeated. And the messenger server instances Okay, you can start fresh all is including the state is completely wiped out
you been forgiven?
So that was the question
I might say that you might mimic the words and you might read the prayer, and I just convey the two I
consider myself in my bias
in the first
when momentarily I could not comprehend the prophetic wisdom in the messages
to all the one sided conditions that were put upon the person, and the message is very polite, and very submissive and very accommodating. And for a moment, I lost my composure
for a moment, and the message of the salon instance stood aside, and he said,
am I not understanding the situation correctly? This is not the correct religion? Surely not those that have passed away on our side in paradise? the messengers said yes, indeed. And
why is such a passive approach, why
you are so compliant, you're so submissive, you're so gentle, you are so accommodating. And he said, the moment doesn't want him to go into details, suffice to say,
and I will do nothing against
you for now.
My boy, when you come to
come and kiss me.
I can't give you the details. Now, as you evolve and mature you realize
Did you realize in that moment, when you lost your composure, and you lost your balance, you will.
Today's young man would be proud would be good, be good, we
couldn't care less and walk out on
the streets, be loud and walk out
our parents and other seniors impress upon us certain values, and due to our due to our weakness and our immaturity, we resist temptation. And as time moves on, inevitably the reality of what they say upon us, they can doubt that those seniors will forgive us and they have forgiven us. But
when it dawns upon you, you will not be able to forgive yourself
was my son was a young boy
me one day,
forgive ourselves and the message is unclear why wait for such a scenario with an irreversible
make amends now and do what needs to be done so that we don't have to contend with such a situation may Allah guide and protect
and compensate for the state of mind. My boss asked him my creative
existence on planet Earth would be four categories of people are presidents, that would be an ideal scenario.
Living it happening. Walking on this planet would be really pleasant
Given there are four types of people on this earth.
As long as we have a panel of scholars,
and group of
people who can read the sciences of
up to the demands of knowledge when it came out
glowing, and people who are designers of this world that I sought out, and they will be much attracted to the
the process the instant reaction of those who possess knowledge,
those who carry knowledge, they said, hang on, hang on, don't be so shallow in your gaze, don't be so limited, don't just see on the surface.
to those who carry the knowledge of t, who embodies the sciences of the character of what we read about the knowledge of Satan?
may Allah preserve those scholars amongst us who possess that, and those that are
the two ambassadors of being a woman came to say that
she said that my brother has moved on. And he left behind an essay of 600 homes.
And I was only given 1001 is the spread
Jamie, what is
my brother passed away a woman.
It says, it looks like you're laying behind a man, he left behind a spouse he left behind two daughters, brothers and one sister is gay.
And if you know inhabitants, you will know if one of those

So the parent will have one set, so from 600
to 500, then when it refers to the spouse,
the wife will receive one a

That is one
of the entire 600 there is 75 that goes to the spouse, and then the two daughters two or more. Two thirds for any reason.
we need we need to create an empty space motivate and create wealth in our communities, scholars who have deep knowledge who have profound understanding because
in the words of
they said, when the food is tasty, you can solve
that when the salt is corrupted, there's nothing to play with the salt and that is the condition of what a society

then we turn two
things into balance, both from the Nexus and the scholars. So someone said to a scholar, he said, you know what
things are changing,
No longer can provide an audience, they no longer can captivate an audience, they no longer have the profound effect that the people of the past and the people of the past.
So I was given one of the most brilliant answers that I've ever had in my life in the Sufi
center, candle, a
neon wallet, remember,
in the previous slide the scholars have
hands on and the message we'll see
dozing off when you snooze,
and politely just cajole them and motivate them and inspire them to action. But now,
the scholars see the message that I
to tell you,
to remind himself, to motivate those naturally. So the point I'm sitting here is these are the role everybody has to play, and one of the crisis that has stagnated our growth,
we have found ourselves in a situation of a blame game. So constantly, I believe, I'm a victim of somebody else's, because if my marriage isn't working because of
this, because of this institution, it's because of my neighbor
needs to rise beyond the mentality of
there was a father who had a beautiful fortune, every time he would harvest the crops and
it was easy
Set your charity will not be accepted. Until then, unless you believe that you need the reward the person needs the food's
truly unique need to be the person who needs the shelter. And I said yesterday, I was an eyewitness to the slide and the different presentations. And my testimony is
exaggeration to the description that was put here.
So this is going to happen every time across the board would come he would give them a chance
to go to the marketplace.
The family hated the business continually when the old man moved on the children inhabited This is mentioned in medical coma with reference to the person
that is used in that skill and that drive in the field. And what was it was the old man was the foolish old man was he now it's time we need to be methodical we can be circumspect, we need to be calculated, we need to do our fingers, our checks and our balances and this is not going to happen anymore.
So they decided

Is see the better we'll come

Completely when they finally
inherited from a father, the action was gone. We've come to somebody else's
house so confident that the plan is on track. It was destroyed beyond recognition, the first
mistake and then they look back like hang on hang on.
No, no, no, no, no, we do not have
to add salt to compound. Instead of taking responsibility. Each one starts throwing the blame at one another but because of because of you. And this is what happens in all marriages is what happens in our institution is the crisis now something has happened up
that point, they take nothing
we've had progressing, we're not moving forward. So
every one of us has made a mistake, he could influence the chance to deny or decline. So each one of us take responsibility for the

that's just a perfect point of reflection in the context of rest today that we don't know which action generates what
we don't understand. We're the
one who was sitting in the company
and one was engaged in an occupation and he had some trade shackle

there is a lovely religion. These are the teachings of Islam in the richness of our being, there's an absolute balance, and there's room and place for everything. Sometimes we need a level of spirituality, we become oblivious of the heights of our spouse and children. And sometimes we become engrossed in the recreational rights of our family, we become an obligation to allow the greatest challenge of being is to sign the fine balance, the greatest challenge of do is to strike the fine balance when nobody says, Don't take care of your mom, and
my brother, the broad shoulders are not talking to the

Anyway, so these three people they go on a journey.
Say that they use the provisions you left 10 books for traveling while you're traveling, and I travel often

Because, you know, when when it hits.
they come to the house of an elderly woman. And they say
and we are
we are the residents of Medina, and we can offer some provision. So she says it says the goal
is yours. So they know the goal and some book comes out and three people long journey the Gnostic traditions.
While it does help, but it doesn't surprise the cause. So
the nobility of your profile compels me to offer you whatever. And the truth is, I only have this donor to respond to this and you can get the firewood.
So she gets the firewood, the gold, the tea, salted the meat and roasted, they eat the meal and they are separated.
We will return to Medina

And he says,
He recognized me No, not at all.
So yes, indeed, do you remember I was your visitor many years ago at this time?
No, I don't remember. And let me just pause for a moment and objectively, say you say
two things. One.
The one thing that you must remember is somebody who has done an act of kindness, you don't have to delete them from your memory. And the one thing you must remember is the kindness you've done to someone.
And today is the opposite.
