00:00:00--> 00:00:56

On the other hand alladhina coluna Riba, those who consume interest now we are taught what we should not do with our wealth. And what is that, dealing with interest. Why? Because those who consume interest cannot stand on the Day of Resurrection, except as one stands who has been beaten by shame upon into insanity, a person who has been possessed by Shelton, a person who has been driven to madness by shavon, who is this person who will be like this on the Day of Judgment, he who gives a loan, and then in return takes back more than what he lent, he is as crazy as the one who has been driven mad by Chopin. He is like the one who has been possessed by shavon. Because Allah likes for

00:00:56--> 00:01:50

us to give sadaqa what he wants us to do is give him charity, that we should cut down on our needs, on our desires on our wishes, and give a portion of our wealth to others to those who do not have to those who are in need. And this kind of charity, this kind of wealth, Allah blesses and increases it. And what Allah dislikes is Riba interest, what is Riba? Increasing wealth how, by taking from those who are already needing, because the person was needy, this is why he borrowed something he was needing, and now taking back from him the original amount that was Lent. And now more on top of that, this is Riba and this is what Allah dislikes, because Allah wants us to give to those who are

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

needy, not to take from them.

00:01:53--> 00:02:42

That is because they say trade is just like interest. But Allah has permitted trade and has forbidden interest. So how can both be the same? So whoever has received an admonition from his Lord and desists may have what is fast, and his affair rests with Allah, but whoever returns to dealing in interest, those are the companions of the Fire. Woman are the for Allah equals heaven. Now, the one who knows that interest is how long still he takes it. Then what does Allah say, for Ola equals harbor now, this is not the fatwa of a human being. This is the word of the Lord of the worlds that the person who continues to deal with interest even after knowing that this is unlawful than Such

00:02:42--> 00:03:27

are the companions of the Fire home feed her Holly Dune, they will abide there and eternally, Allah destroys interest. He orders its abolishment, its eradication, the wealth in which there is interest, money, that wealth is destroyed, even remember if it's a few cents, because sometimes it's just a couple of cents that we are taking as interest. Even that small amount of hobbies of impure will destroy the pure wealth, because young helps a lot with LIBOR. Allah destroys interest and he gives increased for charities, meaning he orders that charity must be spread, charity must be made common. And Allah does not like every sinning disbeliever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:03:27--> 00:04:17

said that there is no person who deals in interest, a great deal, but that he will end up with little meaning the more a person deals with river, the more loss he incurs how religiously Of course, but even financially, either over time he will suffer loss, financial loss, but initially, it seems like gain even if it's just a couple of cents, even if it's just a couple of dollars, it seems like the money has grown. This is why it is called Riba because Riba means growth surplus. So, it seems like it has grown, but what did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say that this person will certainly suffer from a loss? Because what happens initially there is growth, but then eventually,

00:04:17--> 00:04:59

over time, or all of a sudden, unexpectedly there is a huge financial loss. This is the Habana the impurity of of Riba. And Allah does not like every sinning disbeliever Allah wants us to leave Riba because dealing with Riba makes one greedy, it makes one selfish. It makes one hard hearted and all of these results in many great evils. Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds and establish prayer and gives a cow will have their reward with a law with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve you Hello, Dina amanu or you will have been

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

It taco Lucha fear Allah one and leave give up now Bucky Amina Reba, whatever remains do to you of interest leave it the money that has interest in it just leave it in control mode meaning if you should be believers meaning if you truly have email then leave Riba because the one who deals with Riba does not receive Allah's mercy. In fact, he is far removed from Allah's mercy. And notice what I said, the one who deals with Riba because sometimes we think many, many times people think that only taking interest is wrong. Giving interest is not wrong. Listen to this Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam jablow who said that Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:47--> 00:06:36

cursed the acceptor of interest. And it's fair akeelah Riba? wamu kena who, the one who eats it, and the one who feeds x, the one who takes it, and the one who gives it both have been cursed by the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and the one who records it, and the two who witness it, and he said, they are all equal in the same they are all equal in the sin, because how can one take rubber, when the other is not willing to give him river? They cannot take it. They cannot. You know, many times it has said that, well, if you have a bank account, you know that they will definitely give you interest. So then what do you do in that case, just go and threaten them, that if you don't

00:06:36--> 00:06:59

stop it, I will change my account to a different bank. Just say that to them, and instantly, they will comply. Trust me, we've experienced this for a length of ALU. So if you do not do that, meaning if you do not see if you do not stop taking interest, then it will be held him in Allah He was solely then be informed of a war against you from Allah and His messenger.

00:07:01--> 00:07:48

That Come and fight Allah, come and fight His Messenger, who has the ability to fight a lion is messenger. But if you repent, then you may have your principal, thus, you do not wrong, nor are you wronged. And if someone who has taken a loan from you is in hardship, then what should we do? charge them interest? No, Allah says, then let there be postponement until a time of ease. But if you give from your rightest charity, forgive that loan completely, then it is better for you If you only knew what the whole Yeoman told una de la la, and fear a Day when you will be returned to a law. So motto of Kowloon FC maka Sabbath, then every soul will be compensated for what it earned, and they will

00:07:48--> 00:08:33

not be treated unjustly. If you fear the author, only then can you let go of wrong ways of acquiring wealth, because the one who likes dunya, then what happens with him, he cannot sacrifice his dunya even if it's just a little bit, but the one who likes the one who wants his home in the Hereafter, then he can let go of a temporary home here, he can let go of temporary worldly benefits, but he cannot put his alcohol at stake. He cannot put his alcohol at risk, who is truly intelligent, he who puts before himself the benefits of this dunya are the benefits of the aka the temporary benefits of this world, or the eternal everlasting benefits of the aka the one who stops dealing with interest.

00:08:33--> 00:09:16

In fact, he is the one who is intelligent, or you have believed when you contract a debt for a specified term, then write it down. And let us cry, write it down between you in fairness, let no scribe refuse to write it, as Allah has taught him. So let him write and let the one who has the obligation meaning the one who's taking the loan, let him dictate and let him fear Allah and be honest, let him fear Allah His Lord, and not leave anything out of it. But if the one who has the obligation being the one who's taking the loan, the one who has to dictate, if he is of limited understanding, or weak or unable to dictate himself, then let his guardian dictate injustice, and

00:09:16--> 00:09:54

bring to witness two witnesses from among your men. And if there are not two men available than a man and two women from those whom you accept as witnesses, so that if one of the women ORS, than the other can remind her why to women, the reason is also given that if one makes a mistake than the other will just help her because we as women, what do we like support always so much so that even if women have to go to the bathroom, what do they want a public bathroom that their friend should come along with them to stand outside? Why should I use the restroom? This is something that is within women that we like company, we like support. So here also in a courtroom, when there's a serious

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

matter if a woman is brought in to testify, then her friend comes in with her. So that is

00:10:00--> 00:10:20

In case she makes a mistake, then her friend can remind her. But if she doesn't make a mistake, and the friend doesn't have to do anything at all, then the testimony of that woman is sufficient. So over here we learn about the Dain loan that when a loan is being contracted loan is being taken, then this thing should be written down, and witnesses should also be brought.

00:10:22--> 00:11:02

And let not the witnesses refuse when they're called upon, and do not be too wary to write it, whether it is small or large for its specified term, that is more just in the sight of Allah and stronger as evidence and more likely to prevent doubt between you except when it is an immediate transaction which you conduct among yourselves. Meaning if it's an immediate contract transaction, which is concluded right there and then with cash payment, then it is not necessary to record that transaction. It is not necessary that witnesses be brought. For then there is no blame upon you if you do not write it and take witnesses when you conclude a contract meaning when there is an

00:11:02--> 00:11:49

official business transaction, then what should you do? Call witnesses, and let no scribe be harmed, or any witness no one should be harmed for If you do so, indeed it is grave disobedience in you and fear Allah what the cola well you are limo como la and Allah will teach you. How is it that a person learns when he fears Allah, and Allah is Knowing of all things. And if you are on a journey and cannot find a scribe, then a security deposit should be taken. And if one of you interests another, then let him who is interested, discharged his trust faithfully and let him fear Allah His Lord, and do not conceal testimony. For whoever conceals it. His heart is indeed sinful. And Allah is Knowing

00:11:49--> 00:12:24

of whatever you do lilla humor for some RT, warmer fill out to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, what into Murphy and forsaken out of who you have become begun. Whether you show what is within yourselves or conceal it, Allah will bring you to account for it for your fellow Lima Yeshua, then he will forgive whomsoever He wills while your other people may or share and He will punish him He wills will love Warlock, Alicia and Cody. And Allah is over all things competent

00:12:25--> 00:12:25

you

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

for the

00:13:13--> 00:13:17

ekati wakatobi was rolling in,

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

walk on

00:14:00--> 00:14:01

me

00:14:27--> 00:14:59

to unlock belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. Whether you show what is within yourselves or conceal it, Allah will bring you to account for it. The thoughts in our hearts in our minds, sometimes even less what has come into our hearts. So bad, such negative thoughts they are that they are unmentionable. We cannot even bring them on our tongue. They're not even worth mentioning. They're so bad that we cannot even dirty our tongue.

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

are dirty the ears of another person by verbalizing those thoughts. So when Allah says over here, that Allah will bring you to account for it, the Sahaba were very worried that are we going to be questioned about our thoughts also, because thoughts, feelings, they're not always controllable, you cannot always have control over your feelings. So the Sahaba were worried, and later on it was clarified that no, it is only those thoughts which you dwell upon. It is only those thoughts, those feelings, which you do verbalize, which you do act upon a bad thought, when you fight it, when you try to get rid of it, then a person is in fact rewarded for that effort. But when a person dwells on

00:15:47--> 00:16:32

that bad thought on that negative thought, and he acts on it, he verbalizes it, then it is that he will be called to account for it. And then it is up to Allah, he can forgive whom He wills, and punish whom He wills. And Allah is over all things competent, so which thought can be hidden from him. The messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and so have the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels, and his books, and his messengers, saying, we make no distinction between any of his messengers, and they say, Samir, now will Aparna we hear and we obey lafonda kalapana we seek your forgiveness Our Lord, and to you is the final

00:16:32--> 00:17:23

destination. Where you can live for long enough son in law was Aha, Allah does not charge a soul, except with that, within its capacity, it will have the consequences of what good It has gained, and it will bear the consequences of what evil it has earned. Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us, if we have forgotten or if we have earned our Lord, lay not upon us a burden like that which you laid upon those before us, our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear and pardon us And forgive us and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people. These two is the last two verses of Surah Baqarah. The Prophet sallallahu

00:17:23--> 00:18:16

alayhi wa sallam was gifted these two verses from a treasure beneath Allah's throne. These are verses that were not given to any profit before Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and these verses are such that when a person recites them, then these verses suffice him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that if anyone recited these two verses from the last of Bukhara at night, then they will be sufficient for him, sufficient for him. For what for his protection, for his forgiveness, to dispel his fears, to dispel his worries, to calm him down, these two verses will be sufficient for the believer when he will read them in the night, because in these verses, what do

00:18:16--> 00:19:05

we do? We reconfirm our faith in Allah, we reconfirm the fact that whatever Allah has decided for us is just and if we are finding it difficult, then the problem is within us the weaknesses within us. And in these verses, we are asking Allah for strength, we are asking Allah for forgiveness. So anytime you feel worried, you feel stressed out with all the problems and all the burdens that are coming on your head on your shoulders, you feel overweight, make a habit of reciting these two if in the night, because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that these two ions will suffice a person they will be enough for him enough for his protection to keep him safe enough for his

00:19:05--> 00:19:47

forgiveness. Meaning if he says these two I Athan inshallah, he has begged Allah for forgiveness and Allah, Allah will forgive him because he has asked a love of forgiveness and one of the best ways there sufficient to dispel his fears and worries because he's relying upon who he is relying upon Allah subhanho wa Taala. So in these verses, essentially we are taught our Akita, what is it that we must believe in, in order to be of the true believers? At the beginning, we learned that Allah can prefer any of his profits over the rest of them. That is what Allah does. What do we have to do? We have to believe in all of the messengers without any division, and what is a man in the prophets

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

that we hear what the messengers brought, and we obey samina will Aparna, and then we seek Allah's forgiveness for our errors for our shortcomings because we worry that you're allowed to

00:20:00--> 00:20:49

You is our return one day, that the mistakes that we're making the sins that we're committing despite knowing the Hulk, we have to face you one day. So Allah all we bank is your pardon. And then a very important matters clarified in these verses that Allah does not overburden a soul with more than what it can bear. This means that every command in the deen What is it, it is doable. Every command in allows religion is practical, we can all practice the commands, there is nothing that is beyond our ability, there is nothing that is beyond our strength. And likewise, there is nothing that Allah decrees in our lives that we cannot handle, that we cannot manage. Remember, Allah does

00:20:49--> 00:21:22

not obligate us with something that we cannot do. So if it is children, if it is marriage, if it is family, if it is work, if it is studying, whatever it is, whatever it is in your life, remember, you could do it. This is why Allah put you in that situation. This is why Allah put that in your plate, because you could do it. Now when you're struggling to do it, what is it that you need? What is it that you need alomst help his assistance. So this is where we make the right to Allah also.

00:21:23--> 00:22:01

We make the right to Allah that will allow you help us because law, you can live a long enough sun Illa was Aha. And when a person believes with certainty, that yes, I can do this, if I'm allowed to create this for me, then that means I can manage it. And when a person thinks like that, then a lot also gives him the strength. Like for example, we can pray five times a day. This is why a lot ordered us to pray five times a day. And if a person thinks, oh no, it's too difficult, then Will he be able to? No, he won't be able to. But when a person tells himself that no I can, I can do it. This is why Allah ordered me. I can fast in the month of Ramadan. This is why Allah ordered the

00:22:01--> 00:22:49

Muslims too fast in the month of Ramadan. And then we wonder what about this place in the world in this country? Yes, Allah is the one who created this part of the world also, Allah is the one who created the night and the day. Allah is the one who created the moon, the lunar calendar, which is constantly shifting, and he put us in this land inhabiting this place. And he is bringing Ramadan upon us, knowing that we can fast in this month, we can do it. Because if we were not able to do it, Allah would not ask us to do it. He knows us. The problem is, the reason why we worry is because we underestimate ourselves. And the fact is that Allah knows us, and he estimates us correctly. And

00:22:49--> 00:23:38

this is why he tells us to do what we can manage. So, then we are taught that whatever a person does, he will be compensated accordingly. Each person will be paid for what he does, if he does good, that is what he will find. And if he does bad, then that is what he will find. And then we're also taught in these ayat that Oh Allah, if we forget, then please pardon us, and that don't impose on us what we cannot bear. Don't put on us a responsibility that is beyond our ability. Meaning when we think something is too hard for us, this is what we should say to Allah, that he Allah, you've sent this my way. Please give me the strength to do it properly, every night because usually it is

00:23:38--> 00:24:23

in the night that we worry about our problems, isn't it? So instead of worrying and talking about our problems, what is it that we need to do? recite these two is with full conviction, beg Allah for forgiveness, Begala for help, well Allah we ask in these verses that Oh Allah forgive us for the for the good, we leave, pardon us for the sins we do. Give us your mercy so that we may find the strength to do what we have to do. Because Where can we find strength but through Allah subhanaw taala in Allah subhanaw taala because he is our Mola, our protector, so Allah help us against the caffeine from sadhana lol Komal caffeine. Why, why is this mentioned? Because the most difficult

00:24:23--> 00:24:26

test in life is the test of the

00:24:27--> 00:24:29

of religion, in religion.

00:24:31--> 00:25:00

When it comes to our wealth, when it comes to our family, these tests, they come and they go, and we survive when it comes to Deen. That test is the most difficult when it comes to something related to the religion of Allah than that does remember is most difficult. So our Lord give us the ability to overcome those who oppose us. Because the thing is, that if a person does not find a conducive environment

00:25:00--> 00:25:49

Then remaining firm upon the religion becomes very difficult. It becomes very difficult. So Oh our Lord those people who deny your commands Give me strength against them give me victory over them. Those people who don't let me follow your orders who say that they're not good enough or they say that I am too weak I cannot do it. Yeah Allah you give me strength against them you give me firmness and stability against them victory over them how by equipping me with their in with knowledge with wisdom with good luck with firmer I'ma so that I do not remain behind from your obedience. I want to obey you. So whatever challenge that comes in my way, whether it is from within or from without you,

00:25:49--> 00:26:00

Oh Allah you helped me against it because I want to be your obedient servant. And with this we conclude a little Baccarat and the next surah is Surah Al Emraan
