honorable scholars, respected brothers, elders, mothers and sisters.

00:02:14--> 00:02:52

Indeed, I once again feel honored and privileged to address such a huge gathering of Muslims on such a momentous occasion. And let me once again use this opportunity to echo my sentiments of gratitude to the organizers, who have taken the trouble of inviting me all the way from Africa. And I hope in our short discourse today, it can leave me nourished as well as you. However, I would like to confess to a reality as well as the poet says it was a euro tea in Marana subito kabhi Banu de we what Toby valido

00:02:53--> 00:03:01

the poet says was a euro Tatiana moron nurse a bit Taka, Obi Wan Yoda, we, what Toby Bonnie know

00:03:02--> 00:03:11

that a person who lacks piety is advocating piety. In essence, it is like a doctor who is treating a patient yet he himself is sick.

00:03:14--> 00:03:35

If you look through the brochure that is before you and the topic that we have to discuss is something of absolute pertinence and that is avoiding bankruptcy. From the material perspective, Every man has a passion to avoid becoming a pauper and a bankrupt person and keeping the theme at mind and there is the Islamic civilization.

00:03:36--> 00:03:54

Let us reflect on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and understand the methodology he implemented. That in a short span of 23 years, he molded the most barbaric nations and made them just not reformed individuals but made them guidance for humanity.

00:03:56--> 00:04:08

So when we look at his methodology of guiding his nation, then at times he would ask them questions like the Hadith that stays before you when he asked the question. I said the rune manual Muslim.

00:04:09--> 00:04:14

Oh my Sahaba Have you ever reflected on the definition of a pauper?

00:04:16--> 00:04:51

Now, generally, the Sahaba would answer whenever there was, they were asked with a question they would answer by saying, Allahu, Allahu Allah, Allah and His Prophet knows best. But they considered the answer to be so simple, so basic, that they all answered in one voice Alan Mulally sophina Mala Mala Hua Mata, a prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The definition of a pauper is a bankrupt person, like the one in the world as the Arabic poet says it young Shin 40 euro young shill for the Roku saying

00:04:52--> 00:04:56

that the poor person walks in this world and everything opposes him.

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

Have you moved in a bin? You look at him you hate him, but he committed no crime. yada yada yada

00:05:09--> 00:05:11

yada yada, yada yada.

00:05:13--> 00:05:20

The innocent porpoises hatred and malice, but he knows not why have an Al Qaeda 13

00:05:24--> 00:05:28

What is it oh man 41 never had a shot and

00:05:31--> 00:05:40

what does the poet say? That when the dog passes by a wealthy man he passes by wagging his tail. And when the dog passes by a Papa he passes by barking.

00:05:44--> 00:05:48

So the Sahaba said the Papa is one roughly Safina Malachi Rahim Allah who was

00:05:49--> 00:05:52

a prophet of Allah Papa is one who has no wealth of property.

00:05:54--> 00:06:03

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said no. And in the same vein, he asked them about Darwin uttara Anika throttle Madhu Elena was a little man who was

00:06:04--> 00:06:07

a Buddha Do you consider access to wealth

00:06:09--> 00:06:13

as through wealth and lack of provisions as poverty in penury?

00:06:14--> 00:06:29

He says only bubala there is the apparent definition the prophets Allah Islam says no, through wealth is the contentment of the hearts through wealth is the contentment of the heart. And hence on one occasion, he thought Satan alira the Allahu anhu find words.

00:06:31--> 00:06:42

He asked the Denali only would you prefer 5000 sheep? Or would you prefer $5 700? Or the Alon who said the fundraiser to Ireland fuchsia, llama Luna Kathy?

00:06:43--> 00:07:19

5000 sheep. It's a handsome wealth. But Teach me those five words Oh prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to which he replied, make the following Allahumma ferlito newbie Allah pardon my sense what was clearly Hello P and favor me with sublime character? What a bleak, SB and provide me with halaal and pure income. What can nirvani Bhima bmrs attorney and grant me contentment on what you've ordained for me when I do the election in softer honey and let never my heart inclined to something you have averted from me.

00:07:21--> 00:07:25

So in the Sahaba, what is the definition of a poor person?

00:07:26--> 00:07:55

They say Allah Mosley Safina melodrama, Allahu Allah, Masha, Prophet of Allah sallallahu wasallam. A poor person is one who has no wealth, or he has no provisions, the prophets Allah says no, no, as we say, just to set the records correctly. Just for this to set the records correctly. He says, Let me tell you in Alma Felisa min Amati mania to Mel kiama now I beg for your undivided attention. This is a metal which is very, very crucial and critical.

00:07:57--> 00:08:04

In the muffler, seminoma t mania to multi Amati Salatin was the amin was a cotton.

00:08:05--> 00:08:38

Verily, a Papa from my followers is he or she, who will present before Allah on the day of the AMA, with years of fasting with years of charity. These are the plus factors. mania to melodrama TV Salatin was the Armenia observed many many facets was the curtain he had discharged, his obligatory maintain three seconds. Those are the plus factors which will make him wealthy. But then comes the contentious issue.

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

Well, yeah, Tea Party shatta Mahadeva.

00:08:44--> 00:09:33

What aka llama la de la bajada was cerca de Maha de Haan Allah, the eloquence of the speech of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He says, while he will present with all this good and this credit at the same time, there will be people that will appear before Allah. And he had reviled as someone he had verbally abused as someone who had insulted someone. Our beloved my mother, I saw the Allahu Allah, who enjoyed a very close relation to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. On one occasion, she made a remark regarding one of her co wives, one of the honorable consorts of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she said has spoken in Sofia Takeda waka, Tanya casilla,

00:09:34--> 00:09:59

a prophet of Allah sallallahu wasallam your other wife, Sophia, she's very short, which was derogatory about her image. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looked at eyeshine he said La Paz Kalima or Isaiah, I love you, and Allah loves you. But today you've added a statement that if that has to be put into the water line ninja says he will borrow

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

It has the potential to contaminate the oceans of the world.

00:10:07--> 00:10:25

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said in the lab delicata Kala mobile Kalamata mineral is one Illa. Sometimes a person utters a statement when he promotes the esteem of a person, he honest the esteem of a person and that is the teachings of Islam. And there is the civilization of Islam.

00:10:26--> 00:10:34

So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, never demoralized any individual name, he uplifted the spirit and the self esteem.

00:10:36--> 00:11:13

So there was an ordinary man by the name of Zion Hill, who used to live on the outskirts of Medina. He didn't have much social standing. He used to come to Medina and used to sell some basic fruits. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam had a lot of time for him and he made the comment and he said, in NASA run by the aterna wanna know how the robo czar here is my contact in the Village and I am his contact in Medina. So one day Zaheer came and he started sending some of his foot from the villages. The prophets of Allah Islam came from the rear and covered his eyes. And then he said me yesterday has a lab

00:11:14--> 00:11:17

lesson I'm selling this man and he wants to take anyone wants to buy him.

00:11:18--> 00:11:45

So for a moment, he wondered, who is this and when he felt the soft palms of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He turned around and he said, Subhana Allah, is it your own view of Allah? So there was a broad smile and he said, he then says you don't need Allah He qasida if you're going to sell me, I'm very cheap, you won't make much money out of me. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said lucky nine, the lucky Lester because it's, you might be cheap in the eyes of people, but in the eyes of Allah, you're the most valuable person.

00:11:48--> 00:11:58

So the civilization of Islam is that we honor the morals and the values of every person. We don't leave any human demoralized at any time.

00:12:02--> 00:12:33

The prophets of Allah ism says Sometimes a person attains a statement and he brings joy to the heart of a person and he doesn't realize how Allah loves that statement for Yaqoob Allahu Bihari one who Allah Yomi Allah. Allah then confirms His pleasure for that serve until the day he dies. And the reverse. We're in Al Abdullah takala Mobile Kelly met him in Safa, t LA, and sometimes you utter a statement which is offensive, which is derogatory. And then you justify it by saying lawyer Avi Hubba.

00:12:34--> 00:12:49

I don't think there was anything wrong. It was high time that he was told. Someone had to inform him. But that statement is so despicable to Allah. He is eloping happy Nari jahannam Avada muy bien and

00:12:50--> 00:13:04

it will cause him to fall in the depths of hell, the distance which is greater than the east and the west. Hence, the poet says MA in dem to Allah suku t mera wala phonetic Ll kalami marrara

00:13:06--> 00:13:21

ma in Nadeem to Allah suku t Marwan Allah patina team to Allah Allah, Allah Mira in life I never regretted when I observe silence, but there were numerous instances I regretted Why did I speak? Why did I speak?

00:13:23--> 00:13:38

Well yeah, Tea Party shatta Manasa. This person will appear before Allah subhanho wa Taala and these people will come and say, Oh Allah, this man has insulted me. Allah this man has accused me so behind Allah look at the likes of Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu

00:13:39--> 00:14:31

You know, when they say that I belong Ravi Allahu Americana. Yes. It was just thinking of the life of Abu Bakar. And immediately he just started reviving the contribution of this individual. So he said just Allah Hi, Ron and Bella Lin wasafi, hottie fucking jelly, ashy yet and hum Murphy Bella lamb so it while I'm Yama Yama, Allah Hockley bit OCD here Bella miracoli Nisha need to be an a la hora de for me up to Looney Looney Fela coonley oceanica ruffman immunity Patil patchouli, Pharaoh, Rahim Allah Abba unison wa musawah USANA Genie, Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu was a unique individual. Someone came and insulted him and snubbed him. So behind Allah. If we are on the receiving ends,

00:14:31--> 00:14:41

what is the civilization of Islam? Abubakar turns around and he says, If I am what you said, then May Allah forgive me. And if I am not what you said then May Allah forgive you.

00:14:43--> 00:14:50

If I am as you say, then May Allah forgive me. And if I'm not what you sent, then May Allah forgive you for accusing me.

00:14:51--> 00:15:00

So there is also the the teachings of Islam that if we are on the receiving end, how do we conduct ourselves? Someone was sitting Abubakar Yolanda was sitting with a person

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

sallallahu wasallam someone comes in snubs him. Abu Bakr is silent the Prophet of Allah is silent. The person snobs and insults and makes a derogatory remark for the second time Abubakar is silent. On the third time when he speaks abubaker retorts, any response. When he responds, the prophet of Allah stands and he goes away. So abubaker comes out and he said, Oh prophet of Allah, I'm a human. The men provoked me once I observed silence. He provoked me for the second time I observe silence, don't you think I'm justified to answer when he told me for the third time, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said Oh, Abu Bakar when you were silent gibreel was answering on your behalf.

00:15:37--> 00:15:45

When you spoke jabril excuse himself, I also excuse myself, you know, we can go into detail on everything and this is no bankruptcy.

00:15:48--> 00:15:55

With despite appearing before Allah with all your credit, but your minus factors will surpass your goods

00:15:56--> 00:16:09

while you're a tea party, shatta mahadasha will occur llama Allah, Allah Subhana Allah, and this person will appear before a lion in a manner that he had devoted the wealth of someone

00:16:10--> 00:16:12

he had usurped the rights of someone.

00:16:14--> 00:16:17

Now, we are living in a world where we have to face the reality

00:16:18--> 00:16:50

our Salah, that we observe is exclusive to the massage it hence it cannot impress the non Muslim world. Our Zakat is channeled within the circle of the Muslims. Hence it does not be of any any to the non Muslim. Our pilgrimage is exclusive to Mecca with a non Muslim cannot see the greater portion of interaction of the Muslims with the non Muslim world is through business, commerce and trade. What an ideal opportunity Allah has afforded us to present the Islamic civilization.

00:16:52--> 00:17:06

A digital Cobra Yolanda and her How did she become impressed with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam when he was crowned with Prophet would every woman wanted him after all, he was the noblest of Allah creation.

00:17:07--> 00:17:18

Sharia law has said Lana Samson will fit shampoo lenna shampoo, shampoo, wash MC Hiram in some Systema for initium satola.

00:17:21--> 00:17:21

He,

00:17:22--> 00:17:30

one is the son that brightens the world and when is my inner beam that brightens half the other half is in darkness. minebea radiates light 24 hours.

00:17:31--> 00:17:50

Now what left this wealthy widow impressed from the life of the prophet SAW some it was business. He was not yet a profit. This was 15 years prior to profit words. What introduced her to this human It was his dealings It was his honesty, it was his integrity.

00:17:51--> 00:18:10

Now as Muslims the opportunity that stays at us daily, when we dealing with our fellow non Muslim citizens, are we reflecting Islam, and hence I met with a revert, and he told me something which will left me thinking is a chef. I am grateful to the almighty that I met with Islam before I met with the Muslims.

00:18:12--> 00:18:28

I am grateful that I met with Islam before I met the Muslims because I found gross discrepancy. The Islam I studied in the Islamic scene was different. And I'm glad my introduction was with the true Islam before I met the so called practical Muslim

00:18:31--> 00:18:36

to Allah mala hada he had developed the wealth of someone

00:18:38--> 00:19:25

Subhan Allah, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says in the Hadith, Mamata wahoo our very own minal kebari, well hooli what they need the full agenda, he would die is free of three crimes will go straight to paradise. He is free and innocent of pride of deceiving and DCT and he is free from any forms of deaths, then he will go straight to paradise. If we introspect in our lives, Allah forbid we die perpetrating all three crimes. So we have pride in our lives. We have overwhelming death Satan allotment on his son yada yada jacoba Dane for in Noblesville lubaina ha ha ha mumble ale. Oh, my son, don't get involved in depths don't owe anyone a cent or a dime. It's a disgrace by day and

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

it's a worry by night.

00:19:28--> 00:19:34

It's a disgrace by day and it's a worry by night. I want to share one Hadith with you, I just hope my time permits me.

00:19:36--> 00:19:41

There is a very beautiful Hadith in Muslim Sharif. And it shows the Islamic civilization.

00:19:43--> 00:19:49

And it brings up this point here we a person will become bankrupt despite all his good because he owes people money.

00:19:50--> 00:19:55

And regardless whether the money is owed to a believer or a disbeliever you have to give the do to every person

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

Venezuela the Allahu anhu says

00:20:04--> 00:20:54

Lama Karna Yama Jamal I will quote the hadith of Muslim Sharif Donny Abbey. On the eve of the Battle of Jamal my dad calls me queen to defend Allah jumpy, I stood on the side of my dead and he tells me boonie in a hula yokel alone in Laval, Oman, Oman, Rome. Were in Nila Hourani in Lhasa, octyl minuman. Look at this intellectual discussion. Look at the Islamic civilization. We think our youth are competent, our skilled, articulate, listen to this, a father calls his son on the eve of a battle, the most crucial discussion, the final moments of separation. And he says, Listen, my son, your father is heading for the battle and the way things look, there will be many lives that will be

00:20:54--> 00:21:20

lost on both sides. And I have a strong feeling that I will be amongst those who will die innocently today. We're in I mean, Ikenberry, HMI led me and less than my son before I bet you fail, and I separate permanently. I need to whisper one fear that haunts me. I need to leave one message with you. The thing that bothers your father the most is the debts that he has.

00:21:22--> 00:21:45

He's going into battle. He knows he'll be martyred and hence he will be crowned with profit, he'll be crowned with entry into paradise. But what are his words? What is the Islamic civilization? We're in I mean, Akbari, Hamid latini. Then he advises his son, he says, We are born in Ethiopia, Marlena Walker leading me on my son, I'm going sell our assets,

00:21:46--> 00:21:48

wind my estate.

00:21:49--> 00:22:00

And I want you to discharge all the obligations. You know, in English, they say where there is a word, there is a way but someone told me a different thing. He says where there is a word, there are relatives.

00:22:01--> 00:22:07

Where there is a word there are relatives. It's my late cousin, it's my uncle, it's my friends, my brother.

00:22:09--> 00:22:20

But let me tell you, what is the Islamic civilization. Whenever anybody was brought the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would ask one question, how tharaka maintaining does the disease owe any money?

00:22:21--> 00:22:55

So the Sahaba would say yes, he owes money, health or caminhada. In has he left behind money to settle the debts? They would say yes, the profits lrsm would go forward and perform the salon. But in the event of a debt of a dead body was brought, and they were outstanding debts and they were outstanding debts and there was no no arrangements and adequate measures to settle the debts. Then he would tell his Sahaba Salalah sadly become less than someone else come and lead the prayer of the disease. He has outstanding debts I do not want to perform his prayers.

00:22:57--> 00:23:40

Now, reflect you for a moment. There was a woman of epi senior origin, who used to clean the mystery of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. She was a simple ordinary woman. And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam realized that this sister who used to come and clean my mustard is no more to be seen. So he asked from his noble companions that there was the sister which I no longer see what is the matter? So they said oh prophet of Allah sallallahu wasallam she passed away by night, one of the nights and we did not feel it comfortable to disturb your sleep, a given her position. So we arranged for her burial and we buried her Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Do Luni Allah cabrinha

00:23:41--> 00:23:57

do lunia Allah Sabri ha, take me to the grave. Do you know these graves are filled with darkness and loneliness in solitude, and Allah brightens the grave for the occupant when I perform Salah take me to that grave and I want to perform that Salah

00:23:58--> 00:24:08

Yeah, he takes it upon himself to present at the grave of a sister who had passed away and was buried and your the body is brought in he declines.

00:24:09--> 00:24:45

Satan alira the Alanna again the Islamic civilization which is our theme, saving Lee comes forward and he says oh prophet of Allah. I don't know who this man is. But don't deny him your prayers, whatever his debts I will settle us. Whatever his debts are, I will settle it. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam says fuck Allah who Rehana kameena na Kama factor Rihanna de Cali Muslim, Allah May Allah save your soul from Hellfire as you save the neck of your brother. There is Islamic finance. That is how you come to the aid of your brother and that's our civilization.

00:24:47--> 00:24:55

Anyway, Abdullah tells his son, Marlena waka Deniz, sell all the estates and settle our debts. What is what an emotional meeting

00:24:57--> 00:25:00

can we today if we fly in abroad, just call our

00:25:00--> 00:25:31

Son last minute and say listen, I'm out. I'm going for a holiday, I'm going for a business trip, see to this arrange to this cater for this. Unfortunately, there isn't the responsibility that the youth of today have. But look at the integrity and the maturity and how visionary these youth were that a father can call his son and say that's the last meeting, I will be taking my last breath. These are the things you need to go ahead with. Then he says, if there's any wealth left behind after you've discharged the debts, then a third of that must go to your children that is my grandchildren.

00:25:32--> 00:25:50

Abdullah the Alanna says for Johanna you see and he began he, he started emphasizing the importance of settling the debts. And then he tells me Listen, my son, I've got to move now in the Vettel. My last words to you is Yamuna in I just dancing a Minho for Stein Allah hippy malaria.

00:25:51--> 00:25:56

If you have any problems in settling my debts, then consult with my master.

00:25:57--> 00:26:10

Consult with my master. Not with my bookkeeper. Not with my lawyer for legal advice. Abdullah Yolanda says for voila, he murdery to Murat had

00:26:11--> 00:26:12

a better woman Mola.

00:26:15--> 00:26:22

I did not fully comprehend the implications of my dad. So I said that you want to remind me again, who is your master?

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

So he says, Allah,

00:26:27--> 00:26:40

you consult with my Allah and he will sit on my death. But that's the critical issue. Let's not lose focus, we are talking of a pauper who will appear before a law with all credit but here comes the minus factors that he left owing money to someone.

00:26:42--> 00:26:55

So he says for katella Zubair, my father passed away. When am IA da de Noronha? Dr. Hama, he didn't leave behind one dinner or one day I arranged the hunting season Muslim Sharif, I arranged for the burial of my father.

00:26:58--> 00:26:59

And then

00:27:00--> 00:27:09

I started calculating the amount that was outstanding for herself to Makana Allah He for jet to who I will say I will find me a dolphin.

00:27:10--> 00:27:17

I found that he had an outstanding debt of 2,200,000 dirhams.

00:27:18--> 00:27:27

Now, in today's time, if a person has these overwhelming debts, and then let me still explain why he was indebted, then what we say he becomes suicidal,

00:27:28--> 00:27:34

any trivial things and he becomes suicidal. That's the common thing today. You know, it's an escape.

00:27:38--> 00:27:58

He says my father had 2,200,000 and I was responsible what what did he left behind for waves. He had four waves Willow who Yama he didn't decide to burn in Urbana, nine sons, nine daughters and four wives. And my father made me in charge to settle the money and he said that's my last words to you. So behind Allah, what was the Islamic civilization?

00:28:00--> 00:28:03

For cookieless do bear with me at a dinner on volunteer Herman Miller.

00:28:04--> 00:28:08

My father left behind two portions of land one was in harbor a place called harbor.

00:28:09--> 00:28:33

Rotterdam and Bill Medina. He had lived 11 houses in Medina during the bill Basra two houses in Basra, Dharma Kufa one one house in Kufa and 1000 missile. Then he said, let me tell you how my father was indebted and how he got this essence. We're in America and I didn't know who led Canada he and narrow dollar Canada tea for your studio bill Merle, for your kulula in the UK Charlene is

00:28:35--> 00:28:37

a person would come to my late father.

00:28:38--> 00:28:43

We talking of Islamic finance Islamic bank in which this can become a reality in the Muslim world.

00:28:45--> 00:28:51

People would come to my father and say listen, I have 100,000. Durham's Can I keep it in your safe care and custody.

00:28:52--> 00:29:11

So my father out of his kind nature would decline. And he would say, Listen, if I take your wealth as a thrust, then the ruling the Islamic ruling the jurisprudence Eve that if that well happens to be burnt or lost without negligence on my part, then your wealth is lost.

00:29:12--> 00:29:21

So the better way out is I will take that money as a loan from you so that your money is inevitably secured.

00:29:22--> 00:29:42

So you come in to give me to keep it as a trust in an Amana but I will withhold it as occurs. When I've taken it as a loan. Now it's upon my consciousness that I have to pay you. So my father never asked anyone for a cent but people would come and give it to him. He would take that as a loan help the poor, and in this way he became indebted.

00:29:44--> 00:29:53

The essence that came to him was as what was allotted to him from the better. Whatever was allotted to him in the spoils of the war that was given to him that is how it came

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

up to live in. So there are the Alon Who says I calculated 2,200,000 kilograms and as

00:30:00--> 00:30:13

Gotta settle these debts. Just then Hakeem zomorodi Allahu anhu came Subhana Allah. Hakeem hypnotism was a very, very generous man. In fact, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him as salaam to Allah as left I mean,

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

it is your goodness and your generosity that brought you into the fold of Islam. He was a very, very generous man. So he came to Abdullah he said he Abernathy Kamala Athena Dane Zubair, tell me your father has passed away. I guess there's some outstanding deaths. That's Islamic civilization. That's the network we need to create. That's the fabric of our society.

00:30:40--> 00:31:02

Your father has passed away, is there any outstanding debts? So the son says, I thought to myself, my father has told me I must consult with a law. And every time I had a problem for law he ma watoto Kuru Betty mendini in La Jolla. Mola Zubair de novo. Every time I had a problem I said, Oh the lord of Zubair you make arrangements for Zubair

00:31:03--> 00:31:04

Subhana Allah.

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

And when a person wants to pay then Allah there is a hadith in Bukhari, where a person borrowed money and the date came that he had to pay the dues. So he just could not he needed to cross the river and he could not get across because there wasn't any boat that day. So he took the money and he tied it up to a little stick. And then he covered it up security and he let that stick float on the water.

00:31:33--> 00:31:36

You know, we talking of internet banking, there was water banking happening way before

00:31:38--> 00:31:52

we do an internet Tran internet transfers and we think we are moving with time. And Allah brought that the Hadith comes in Buhari and that that little stick came sailing through the door of that person. And that man came outside, picked up the steak open the note and found the money there.

00:31:54--> 00:31:58

Why? Because this was the day I had committed that I'm going to pay that man I have to pay him.

00:32:00--> 00:32:20

So Hakeem hypnotism Abdullah, tell me your father was the only money so Abdullah Rolando says, forget him to whom I conceal the reality and I said yes, he was when he was when about 100,000 Where is the reality was 2 million. So Hakeem hypnotism says, One lahemaa Amala Contessa Ohashi.

00:32:21--> 00:32:25

100,000 I don't know where you're gonna fork out 100,000 from

00:32:26--> 00:32:34

and Abdullah says in my heart, I'm thinking, you think in 100,000 is a lot my friend the reality is 2,200,000

00:32:35--> 00:32:40

so what was Hakeem even exam? His words were in a just a Minho. festa

00:32:42--> 00:32:59

lesson, my brother, my deepest condolences on the death of your late father. I've only come in not to get inquisitive of your finances, but I've come to unconditionally extend my help to you. Whatever financial problems you have you asked me and let's settle it so that it makes things easy for your dad in the grave.

00:33:01--> 00:33:04

Do you say that a little Yolanda season that's the spirit of a believer

00:33:06--> 00:33:17

that when somebody else is in need, he said, I'm just gonna run through the couplets I don't have time to interpret this year. He said ma Santa dunia what is Kabbalah? Ha either Otto Allah humma nah Ha.

00:34:10--> 00:34:12

Subhana Allah you know, we'll need an hour for that alone.

00:34:15--> 00:34:47

Anyway, Abdullah Rolando says man, Quran Allah Zuberi show you one follow up in our bill Baba, whoever has any outstanding claims against my late father come and meet me at the Baba that was the name of my father of the life niche offer of yellowness a study this hadith. It explains the aspect of the the Pauper, the importance of settling debts, and it very clearly depicts the Islamic civilization of the life niche offer comes to the lightness where he says, Listen, your late father owed me 400,000 dirhams.

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

Your late father owed me 400 not every man wants to know. Every man wants to know and understands the need of money. We're in a hula hoop. belhaj real sad. The Quran says it's

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

inherent in men, the level of wealth is inherent.

00:35:05--> 00:35:22

Man I'm Allahu Allah abdeen beniamino farmina lafiya wakulla lumen rufiyaa he just said he for who are female you shut your labia wolmar falloon Hassan Jaden alfetta alakina who iria ma Oksana Daniela kina hamacas Neha dataran ferrania

00:35:24--> 00:35:26

and he says your late father owed me 400,000 in shaytaan thorac to holla competition I don't need the money you can write off this year I am telling you I'm canceling the debt I don't want this money.

00:35:37--> 00:36:06

So after likeness versus no no my father before he died he told me last words my son settled my deaths. I don't want problems in my grave. So the lightning jafra says okay, in general to move her femur to Runa in order to make me the last to settle settle me the law settle everyone else. He says, No, no, I want to settle you now. Then he says Will you accept the land in lieu of the payment? He says yes, he demarcates the land and he gives it to him. And then he starts distributing the other wealth. My time is up, I briefly run you through the Hadith.

00:36:08--> 00:36:18

After he had settled on the deaths, his brothers and sisters came to him and they said it seemed been an army rossana lesson our father has passed away we want our shares and our rights.

00:36:19--> 00:36:24

So Abdullah, Agnes, well said, well, la de la oximeter, benina con,

00:36:25--> 00:36:46

una de bill Mo, some Aruba, Santa Sydney, I will not give you a dime until I don't announce in four successive Hydra seasons, that if anybody has a claim against my father, come and claim it and I will settle it. When I'm convinced beyond doubt that my late father doesn't owe a cent or a dime, then you will get your share.

00:36:47--> 00:37:19

Now, let us reflect over our lives. Let us reflect over our lives and ask ourselves like our fellow man whom a Muslim in elaborately bFc men, it is not correct to take the wealth of any human until he does not consent. And if you have taken it, you have to return it. So let me get back to the Hadith because the time has left. The prophets of Allah Islam says he will appear before Allah, He will have years of fasting years of charity waited for the Akala mala hada he had insulted someone. He had usurped the rights of someone

00:37:20--> 00:37:27

suffocate the Mahabharata. He had caused bloodshed on this earth, he had killed one person wrongly.

00:37:29--> 00:38:22

as Muslims we are thought to live with dignity and respect. Satan or Mussolini is Salatu was Salam killed one person unintentionally aiding an oppressed person he was aiding a victim and he responded to the aid of a victim. And in retaliation, he trespassed the limits as the Quran says, for workers are homosassa toda la la casa homosassa cabo la Ilaha Minami la shavon in wardo, Medina mubin Allah forgive me, I have done something wrong of Allah I have gone beyond the limits I have taken one soul unjustly so to kill the any human. You study the consequences that the Quran speaks about taking the soul of one Muslim unjustly, Romania, Meena Mata Amita

00:38:23--> 00:38:35

The one who kills a Muslim intentionally for jazza who jahannam his penalty is Hellfire, Ali Dunphy ha he will drill there in with eternity. What are the Bala

00:38:36--> 00:38:46

and Allah is angry with him when I know who and Allah kisses him what I had done awada NaVi Ma and Allah has prepared a severe punishment for him.

00:38:47--> 00:39:22

Now I asked you we are living in an age of freedom. aborting that innocent child is that not taking this that is not taking the soul of any any human? We're either in Modesto so Ella, will not that child stand up and ask What crime have I committed that unborn innocent defenseless child and today it has been ultrasonically proven as well that the child has feelings, but it's a topic of its own. This person will appear before Allah with years of fasting years of Zakat, but he had insulted someone you served the rights of someone was because

00:39:23--> 00:39:47

he had tarnished the honor of a woman. He had accused the woman he is stigmatized the character of a woman that might have trouble Ronnie formosana to hottie Mohamed amiata sana to taint the honor of a woman to stigmatize the the integrity of a woman destroys the worship of 100 years.

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

And so behind Allah, I have spoken previously last year and I want to just mention one point. During the time when the scandal was circulated against our mother, I shouted the alarm

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

Ha,

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

one day the wife of Abu banswara comes home. Now, you know sometimes woman with utmost respect, just for the to initiate a discussion. We tend to gossip, maybe not wittingly or unwittingly, but we realize not the implications. So look at look at the spirit of a believer how he should be how he should defend the honor of a sister, a boy you been sorry about the Alanna his wife comes home and she says have you have you heard what people are saying about Ayesha Allahu wa. Have you heard these rumors that have been circulated these accusations?

00:40:41--> 00:40:43

And the Quran responded

00:40:45--> 00:41:13

Lola Samia tomo Lola is a semi auto. Me no no mo Amina to be enforcing him Hira Lola is a semi auto Bonomo Amina Amina to be enforcing him work on ohada if como be that a believer is he in whose presence when his sister is tarnished or stigmatized. Then he stands up and he says that's a blatant lie. How dare you open your mouth against my sister?

00:41:14--> 00:41:16

That's Donna. Allah has given to our sisters.

00:41:18--> 00:42:02

A boo boo and sorry, tells his wife, he says you are my wife. Will you ever do an act like this a despicable act of immorality. She's answered in the negative she says I will never perpetrate such a crime. So he tells her, you are my partner, you are my wife, the wife of a human sorry, and you will never perpetrate a crime like this. Ayesha, who is the wife of the master of both the world would she ever commit a crime like this? I don't need to investigate this from the very face. I can understand it. It's a white lie. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam says he will accuse someone he will you serve the rights of someone avara Bahasa he will hit someone satana Omar had an argument with a

00:42:02--> 00:42:22

disbeliever regarding the superiority of Messiah and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And in the process, Omar was provoked for lezama who overslept that men that men came running to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the professor said, I'm anti Omar, Omar, you have slapped him. Now he has to slap you or you have to please Him, but justice must prevail.

00:42:24--> 00:42:34

Justice must prevail. So I just briefly run into these complaints that will be lodged against him. People will say well law he owes me money. Our law he accused me our law he insulted me.

00:42:35--> 00:42:56

All these people will line up before Allah Safa kata Maha de Aquila mala for your TA has Amina Sonata he was I mean her sanity, Allah tala will then say you can enjoy his charity. You can enjoy his fasting image and you come home with your check for which you work hard, you sweat, and you come with your bonus check.

00:42:59--> 00:43:37

You come with your bonus check. And then somebody just takes your wealth and he starts distributing it. your hard earned sweat money, you know what it takes? You know how possessive you are over your money. We're in Napoleon Hill he really should read the Quran says you won't they want anyone to touch it. You want to work out and spend your money. Allah would say you have his Salah, you have exactly what you have is fasting, a time will come and this is the area of bankruptcy and apapa the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says for Infineon Hassan Otto, for infinite has an heir to a time will come with all his good deeds will be exhausted. Everything will be exhausted yet people will be

00:43:37--> 00:44:17

demanding. Allah will then say the only way I can satisfy your demands Is that okay is amin hapa, whom Allah He, we will lighten your sins and your burden and he will carry your sins. So first all his good will be distributed. Can you imagine how expensive it is when you traveling abroad or any way you prefer buying a bottle of water before getting to the airport because at the airport you will pay $5 more rather settle it in this world My brother has the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that if you own anyone call him here and settle it. Otherwise they're the currency will be your good actions and it will be taken a time will come nothing will remain then the sense of others will be

00:44:17--> 00:44:59

thrown on you some material has been now and this person will be thrown headlong in the fire of hell. May Allah tala save us from that and grant us the trophy can the understanding that we will reflect we ponder and we make this the turning point. Whatever we do is owed to anyone let us use this opportunity to go and settle that do to that person. If we've offended anyone if we've insulted anyone yuja or bibliodrama yo Mathematica and oh by the way, men will appear before Allah like a lamb our lamb appears before law, he will be standing before line that condition. So rest assured, we don't need things to jeopardize our entry into general we need things to make it easy for us.

00:44:59--> 00:45:00

There was much

00:45:00--> 00:45:24

For me to speak, but my time has left. But I hope in the short time, I have left you with some food for thought and that we become conscious about this bankruptcy and we become conscious about the true definition of poverty and shift focus from the material poverty and penalty to that which is the ultimate poverty. May Allah save us and blessed us with true wealth in this world through wealth in Africa, save us from physical poverty and from spiritual poverty.
