Lesson number 36 will begin from Isaiah 272
laser alayka who their home Kingdom La Jolla de Manisha not upon you are Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is responsibility for their guidance. But Allah is the one who guides whomsoever He wills, Lisa alayka alayka gives the meaning of responsibility. So upon you are prophets or of audio so then there is no responsibility meaning you're not responsible for what who the home their guidance, whose guidance guidance of people have been added.
Now, the word who the hidayah as we know it means guidance. Remember that there are two types of guidance. The first step is hey Daya, it should have a hit a million, which is to inform the other about what is right, what is wrong, what is acceptable, what is not what does Allah want, and what has he forbidden.
And this is hedaya, or youmedia, it shut to make the other away.
Now, as we know the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was sent as a messenger, as Mr. Lim, yet to do or lay him at. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was responsible for conveying he de la media to the people. However, the second type of hidayah which is a de tofik, what does that mean to make the other except that he diarrhoea and apply it? Follow it?
One is to tell a person what is right what is wrong and the other is to make a person accepted. So that he follows it, he observes it, he does not deny it.
So over here when Allah says laser, Laika Huda home which today is this dire, though feel, meaning you're not responsible to make sure that the people accept the message that you convey to them. Your responsibility is only to convey if they don't accept if they don't follow. It's not your fault. Why? Because when I can allow her, but Allah subhanaw taala, Yeti Manisha He is the one who guides whomsoever He wrote meaning he is the one who gives he Daya Delphic and Manisha, whomsoever Allah wills. What does it mean by that? We learnt this yesterday as well. You did hit Mata Manisha that it's based on his wisdom and his knowledge. That, yes, Allah selects when he wills for guidance for
different favors. But obviously, that is dependent on his wisdom and knowledge.
And also some have said that when I came to La Jolla de Maya, man over here refers to the person who wants to be guided,
then what happens? Allah gives him that oh feel when a person desires guidance, then Allah gives him the trophy. Now, the question is, how come this has been mentioned, right in the middle of the ad, which are about spending,
we learned that when it comes to spending in the way of Allah, there are certain etiquettes that a person has to observe, for instance, when giving sadaqa a person should not give it while showing off to the people, he should not follow it with mine and other similarly, whatever he selected to give as Sadako, what should that be for you? And it should not be hobbies. And what happens when people are informed about this still, what do people do, they continue to give that which is hobbies, they continue to follow, there's other for women and other they continue to do with the and the person who is telling the people about what Allah likes, and about what Allah does not like.
Then what happens he feels as if he is not conveying the message properly. For example, you tell somebody about something and they don't listen. What do you think? Maybe I didn't do a good job. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is being comforted that it's not your fault. You can only tell people, you cannot force them do accept the guidance to accept the instructions. You can only tell people you can only want people
in Santa Monica, you are only a warning. When I came to La Jolla dementia, it is Allah subhanaw taala who guides the people.
So basically over here, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is being told that you cannot force the people to observe the proper etiquette when giving charity, some of that, that this has been revealed concerning a particular incident. And what was that incident? That asthma? The sister off, I shall be learned her. Her mother visited her from MCC and her mother was still a Michigan she was still a disbeliever she was still
Apologies. And what happened, a smart little deal on her, she did not welcome her in her house, she did not allow her to come to her as a guest. And remember when somebody comes to you as a guest you have to spend on them. So she wasn't willing in any way to spend on her mother. And it wasn't just with her. It was with many other companions as well, even our best for dinner and who said that the people dislike giving charity to their polytheist relatives. But then they were later told they were later allowed to give it to them, to give charity to them. Just as when we have the opportunity to give sadaqa who do we prefer to give it to Muslims. And when we find that if we give food to a
particular food bank, it's going to go to everybody including non Muslims, some people are very reluctant. But the fact is that everybody deserves other whether they're Muslim or not Zakat, mandatory charity, obviously, of course, it is for Muslims only. But when it comes to voluntary charity, when it comes to sadaqa, when it comes to feeding food to people, when it comes to clothing, the people who do not have proper clothes to wear those who are hungry, those who are suffering in the cold, then because they're human beings, you're supposed to give something to them.
So Lisa alayka, who there who is not your responsibility to guide the people, but you're supposed to give several cards to people?
Well, I can number it Manisha Well, not on FICO men hiring fairly unphysical. And whatever that you spend, have any good of any wealth of anything that is good, fairly and physical, it is for yourselves, how reward is for you, you will get the benefit. Therefore, after giving this other car, then don't follow the sadhaka by man and other.
If you are the one who is benefiting from your charity, then don't nullify your charity by following it with money and other. If you're the one who is going to benefit from the sadhaka, then don't do it while showing off. If you're the one who is going to benefit by giving sadaqa then give that which is not that which is hobbies, because you're the one who's going to benefit. Many times when we're giving something away, we keep the time for ourselves, and we choose the hobbies for the other. But what does Allah say whatever you spend is for yourself. So if you're choosing the hobbies for the other, you're actually choosing the hobby for yourself.
That Hadith about I show the learner that the entire sheep or goat that was slaughtered and she distributed the meat and the profits or loss of them asked her what has remained of it? What did she say? nothing except the shoulder? And what did he tell her? That in fact, everything is saved except for the shoulder.
So whatever that you give is actually for yourself. So choose to give the best because that is exactly what you're going to get fairly unphysical it is for yourself into that first minute I have already sex Allah says my army lasallian Funny enough, say whoever does righteousness, it is for his own soul. It is for his own benefit. Whatever good deed we do, we are going to get the reward for it will make them feel cooler.
And you do not spend inlet except if you are urged to seek
the face of Allah, the countenance of Allah. The word man over here means not an over here mag gives the meaning of prohibition, that Merton silcoon You must not spend in Liberty, law or delay except only to seek the face of Allah, except only to gain the pleasure of Allah, the mercy of Allah.
That the only reason the only intention, the only motive behind your sadhaka behind your spending should be what? To gain the pleasure of Allah. So if that is your motive, if that is your intention, then why should you follow your Sadako by man and other? Why should you do it while showing off? Why should you choose that which is hobby
hasn't adversely, he said that whenever the video response, including what he spends on himself, he seeks Ella's face with it. He seeks a less pleasure through it. Whatever a person spends meaning this is what the is telling us. That when you're giving, whenever you're spending, you're actually doing it to gain the pleasure of Allah. So don't follow it by man. Don't follow it by other don't do it for the sake of showing off. Choose that which is for you.
And also, it has been said that what this means is that when you give sadaqa what's the purpose, you want to get the pleasure of them.
So, you will not be asked about the deeds of those people who received that sort of laser nikodem. That's not your problem. Your goal is to give this other obviously, you should choose the one whom you're giving this other cartoons so that you get the most reward. Because obviously, if you give it to somebody who is going to benefit from it properly, who's going to worship a lot more, who's going to obey a lot more, obviously, whatever he does, is going to be a means of your reward as well. And if a person can make sense, then what does Allah say your intention is to gain the pleasure of Allah. So you will not be asked about what the recipe does with this article.
And remember that Hadith, that once a man said that tonight, I shall give charity and what happened, he went out with his charity, and unknowingly he gave it to an adulterous, a woman who is a prostitute. The next morning, the people said that sadaqa was given to an adulterous. The man said, Oh Allah, all praises for you. I gave my sadaqa to an adulterous tonight, I shall give sadaqa again, he went out with his charity and unknowingly gave it to a rich person. The next morning, the people said, last night, a wealthy person was given arms was given for the club. He said, Oh Allah, all praises for you. I give sadaqa to a wealthy man, tonight, I shall give sadaqa again. So he went down
with this other car and gave it to a thief. The next morning, that people said last night, a thief was given sadaqa. So obviously, this happens to you are you going to feel
maybe masataka is not being accepted?
Instead of doing a good deed, maybe I'm committing a sin. What does Allah say? your intention is to gain the pleasure of Allah. So whatever people do, that's not your problem. Then someone came to him and said, the sadhaka that you gave away, were accepted. As for the adulterous this article might have abstained her from adultery. As for the wealthy man, it might make him take a lesson and spend his wealth that Allah has given him and asked for the thief, it might make him abstain from stealing.
So therefore, gives us whenever you have the opportunity, because your goal, your purpose, is to gain the pleasure of Allah.
I notice how Allah says, in Liberty Hall, what, what is what face? Now, what does it mean by seeking the face of Allah? What does it mean by that, to seek the face of Allah, meaning to be able to see a loss.
And as we know, from the Hadees, that people on the Day of Judgment, in general, people will be able to see a loss of paradata. I mentioned to the Hadith earlier, that you will see your north as you see the full moon, and nothing will impair your view of him, as long as you What do you have to do to make sure that you're able to see a lot just as you see the full moon? What do you have to do? Don't miss the two cool prayers, which ones are they legit, and us?
Now we see that in Estonia, people like to see so many different things.
For example, if there is a match, you can see it on the television, you can see it on the computer. Even if you don't watch it, you can still know about the scores, isn't it? But still, what do people do, they will go to the stadium.
And then they will try to watch the match from their live. Because there's a thrill in watching something live. And if you think of it, if they're at home, and they watch the same game, on a big screen, maybe they'll have a better view compared to the stadium where they're stuck all the way up. And maybe they can see the people who are paying as 30 people. It's possible, but there is a different type of pleasure in seeing something life isn't.
So over here, what does Allah say? Your goal when it comes to spending is to gain the face of Allah to be able to see a lot of predator because seeing brings happiness. Seeing brings happiness. So whenever you give sadaqa what should be your goal, but all I'm spending so that I can see you.
I'm spending, I'm giving this because I want to be able to see you
and anything precious that you want to see any place, any object any person, very precious, very valuable. What do you have to do? You have to pay for it. You have to do something for it. You have to be eligible. For example, if you go to the harmony wish to enter the cover can just any random person going there. You have to be a dignitary you have to have done something you have to be up there to be able to go inside similarity. Just to
Go watch a match live in a stadium, what do you have to do? There, you have to do something. So similarly, you have to do something to be able to see a loss penalty on the Day of Judgment. You can't just make wishes.
You can't just have hopes that okay, doesn't matter. inshallah I will, I hope I will. That Yes, of course you should wish, but you also have to do something. So over here Allah tells us that you're giving, why to seek the face of a lot to be able to see a lot of panel data and there is a Muslim Dora as well,
in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam pray well as a Luca kabwata, ie left and kakeru was a new karela bar the other was a Luca Bowdler he bardell mode was Luca LED, that another email logic was shoka ilica, ik field lady LA and will be locked in, when I fit, nothing will be left. Or Allah, I asked you such coolness of the eyes, such coolness of the eyes, such comfort of the eyes, that does not see ease and contentment upon what you have decreed, and a happy and cool life after that, and the bliss and pleasure of seeing your face, and the craving desire to meet you without harmful detriment and trials that lead astray. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam actually made the to be
able to see the face of Allah on the Day of Judgment. And this is something that we must also do, we must also emulate the way of the Prophet sallallahu Salah
that Allah says were met and finkelman hiding, and whatever that you spend of any good notice higher and higher incomes, that he assets, wealth, but it's also something good, it's something for you, not hobbies, whatever that you spend of any good, whether it is your money, or it is some of your property, or it is some resource, some time, some effort, anything that you spend, you will fail equal, it will be given to you in full, you are free from wildfire, and what does warfare mean, to fulfill something, to complete something to not reduce it.
So it will be given to you in full well until latos law mode and you will not be wronged. So whatever you give in the way of Allah, it will be given back to you.
Now over here you offer does not necessarily mean equal, that if you give five, you will get five No, it doesn't just mean equal, but it is according to a las panatela standards. And what is Allah subhanaw taala standard, that it's multiplied many, many times up to 10 or 700 or more, you will find a con one two, let alone and you will not be wronged at all, you're not going to suffer any loss. So whenever you get in the way of Allah, you're not actually suffering loss, you're actually investing because Allah is going to give something to you in return many times more and you will not be treated unjustly at all.
That's the recitation
So this is encouraging us that why would you not choose to spend the year in the way of Allah? The very best that you have in the way of Allah? Why not?
And why would you follow your sadaqa by man and other than wasted, why would you do that? Because whatever that you give, you're going to get it back. Whatever that you're giving, you're giving it for the pleasure of Allah. So choose the best give the best so you can get the best as well.
And as for will enter latos law mon you will not be wronged at all meaning wherever that you gave you will definitely be recompensed
Allah subhanaw taala tells us and sort of haha i a 112 well may or may mean asylee hertie wha hoo. Menon Fela Johar Fullman while I helped man but he who does righteous deeds, why he is a believer, he will neither fear injustice nor any deprivation.
He will not be treated unjustly. nor will he suffer from deprivation meaning the reward, he will not be deprived of it. What is injustice that it's not given to him at all? What is deprivation, that only little bit is given in
Return, no, he will not fear any loman when I help him, nothing at all, he will be given his reward info. Now our last panel data tells us about who exactly where exactly, we should give our wealth we should spend in the wave Allah. So far we have learned that we should give whenever we get the opportunity. However, wherever we can, and we should not care about what the other person is going to do after we give them. And what's the condition of giving something that it should be something that is, like you.
Remember that sometimes we say, we might say from this ayah from the previous slide, that we're not responsible for what the other person does, with what we give them, we have to be careful about what we give them remember, it should be playing. So for example, if a person is giving away her own food, he bought it by mistake, he's giving it away as charity, or because it's cheaper. Let me just give it Indonesian instead of buying halal food, no, what's the condition and physical means to spend that which is to you, in both the tangible way, as well as the intangible way, afterwards, whatever the person does with it, that's not your problem.
But here in the following night, Allah tells us that, who is it that you should give to because if you give here, if you give in this way, then obviously, the reward will be much more the reward will be much more.
So when should you give yourself a photo linfoot to those who are poor, meaning a solder carto or an info link for Cora and for Cora is a poor enough for
someone who is a destitute, someone who is extremely poor. And remember that 42 is used for someone who does not have anything, No means no assets, no resources, no job, no earnings, nothing. So, for those who are poor, they have very little resources, very little possessions, very few, they have the bare minimum, they can barely survive, and they have no means of earning any wealth either, which for color in particular, there could be manufacturer out there, but which bokhara should you choose to give your sadakazu they are and Medina or swedru feasterville in there, those who have been restricted for the cause of Allah,
the worst ladle is from have sought to hustle and hustle literally means the leak, to tighten, to surround something to encircled something do encircled something in such a way or to restrain something in such a way that it cannot go out.
has lead is also used for a prison Why? Because the person who is in the prison he is restricted, he cannot get out of there. Even if he tries he cannot there are bars, there are people there are guards, how can you leave he cannot so far is to surround someone so that they are detained so that they are restrained and prevented from leaving from going anywhere else. So those people who have been restricted Why? Why don't they have any freedom because they have dedicated themselves for what feasible Allah for the way of Allah for the deen of Allah. And because they have committed themselves for the deen of Allah therefore, lay still to never been filled out. They are not able to
travel around India
yesterday arona is from Thoreau and STTR is to have the ability to have the capability of doing something. So they have no ability to do bourbon fill up that as you know means to strike and barraba fill up bourbon fill up, it means to travel.
It's an expression. And in particular it is to go about the travel to go about in the land, especially for the purpose of trade or in search of livelihood.
So now you still do not have been filled up they're not able to go about in the earth, to engage in commerce in business to make a living. Why? Because they are so busy. They are so involved, they are so engaged in the way of Allah.
So we see that there are many places where a person can spend but the best is to spend on those people who have sacrificed their careers, their businesses, their jobs, why? To serve the deen of Allah.
And because they are serving the deen of Allah full time. Therefore, they don't have any time to make money on the side. Everybody gets 24 hours in a day.
Some people choose to spend most of these 24 hours doing what serving the universe.
And other people choose these hours to do what? To make money to work.
Now, if a person is serving to the novela his whole day, most of his week, how and From where will he get time to go work and also make money? Is it possible? No, it's not.
Okay, then should he leave the deen of Allah? Should he leave working for the deen of Allah? Okay, fine, he won't work, he won't work, what's going to happen who's going to suffer
the Muslims, overall the Muslim community is going to suffer. So, if there are some people who have sacrificed their time, their jobs, their careers, everything of theirs, Why? So that they can serve to the novella, therefore, they should be the one who should be given the sadaqa. And we see that, in particular, this ayah was revealed about the immigrants, the Maha God who had migrated from Mecca to Medina.
And we know that many of us who have or who migrated from Mecca to Medina, some of them, they started their business, they got their homes, they got married, they got settled, everything was fine. But many of them did not have enough or did not have the means to go buy a house to go rent a house to have a family to provide for a family. Why? Because now in Medina, the Dean was being established. All of the laws of Islam were being taught to the people. We know that the laws concerning alcohol concerning Riba all of these were were they given in Medina, all of these details were given were in Medina. So some people had dedicated their entire time to learning the deen from
the Prophet sallallahu.
And these people in particular, who are they called the Sahaba. They're called the US herbal suffer. They're about 400 in number, and they had left their homes, and they had left everything their work, their trade, they didn't get married. Why, so that they would stay in the masjid. And they would learn from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam during the day. And during the night, they would worship Allah subhanaw taala.
And we see that whenever the Prophet sallallahu Sallam went for battle, as you know, there was no standing army. So who is it that went with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? It was these horrible suffer, because obviously, other people were busy with their work with their families, with their children with their grandparents, something or the other. But these 400 some men, what had they done, sacrificed everything so that they could give 100% to the deen of Allah subhanaw taala.
So we see that these 400 Sahaba, they were the students. They were the volunteers. And they were the workers. And only this way, only because of this, Islam grew as it did.
If these people did not sacrifice their time, their families we would not have the knowledge that we have today. We would not have the Islam that we have today.
It was because of their sacrifices, their dedication, take the example of Abu Dhabi learn only what had he done. He accepted Islam much later, compared to Abu Bakar dinar and who are metal they learn how many other companions but when he came to Medina even migrated to Medina much after much later. And when he came to Medina, what did he do? He did not get married. He did not settle in a nice house. No, he spent his day and night in the machine learning from the profit sort of artist element also from the other companions.
And we see that sometimes he would be so hungry, that he would almost faint he will become unconscious because he didn't have the time to even go get food for himself or buy food for himself because he could not afford and this is why Abu huraira Lauryn Hill, he narrated about 5000, a Hades much more than even I should have the line.
And we know about I should have known her she would ask a Buddha that Where did you hear this from? And when did you hear this? When did you learn this? What would he say? That while you were busy making your hair and dressing yourself up. This is what I was doing.
Because he had no family. He did not get married at that time. 24 seven, the whole time. This is what he was doing. And this is what a serious student of knowledge is.
He doesn't care about having fun and going out and doing this and doing that. No, he's serious about what he's doing. Because it's an opportunity that Allah has given him and Nakamoto over another learn to excel much further than so many other companions.
So because they have dedicated all of their time, all of their energy, everything that they have for what to serve the deen of Allah to learn the deen of Allah to define
The Deen of Allah, therefore spend on them. Because if you spend on them, if you help them, if you support them, then everything that they do, you also get the reward for it.
So we see that Allah subhanaw taala dealt us over here, that if you're spending in the way of Allah spend on who, those who are confined in the way of Allah.
It's the duty of all the other Muslims to support such people.
Because remember, one is felt I something that is mandatory upon every single believer, and one is one key fire. What is funky fire? That if some people do it, it is enough. But for those people if they're doing it, then somebody has to support them. you're somebody who have near the ignorant one. He thinks that he considers them to be Alinea to be rich, your subwoofer husband to think to assume.
So the ignorant person who is someone who does not have
so the ignorant person someone who does not know these fukumura he thinks them to be Alinea. Alinea is a part of honey rich. Why minetta because of their restraint, because of their modesty.
A tariff of Islam I infer from the word refer and refer is to refrain it is to abstain from something. And therefore in particular is to not ask someone of anything. Why? out of shyness, out of modesty.
The word is derived from the word Erfurt and effect is used for milk that remains in the other of the she camel, despite being milked, it doesn't come out. It can but it doesn't. There's something preventing it, something stopping it. So effect is to be content with a level that a person has. And he does not ask for more. He does not demand more.
So what does it reflect? What is the life to be content with the level that a person has? And he does not ask others for more? Why? out of modesty, out of self respect,
so that our foot isn't the person who does not have thumb or who does not have greed for more.
Whatever they are given whatever they have, they're content with it. So because these people, these fukumura they have to have full meaning they do not go asking other people, they do not go around begging others. Therefore what happens? The ignorant person who does not know them, he thinks that they have enough. They don't need anything. And if you think logically, a person who is day in and day out in the masjid, learning and studying and praying and serving the deen of Allah going for battle coming back, and you don't see him involved in any work, obviously, aren't you gonna use some of your mind and think where he's supporting himself from how?
So the ignorant one who does not pay attention? He thinks that they have enough and they don't need anything. Why? Because of their restraint. Because they do not go around asking people the full color. They don't go around asking people.
Daddy family, Sima home. So the question is, how do you know that? What does Allah say, Daddy for whom you're going to recognize them be seen their home by their marks by their signs? The word Sema is for newsletters, well see me. And what does wasn't mean to mark something. So Sema is a mark, what kind of a mark is it? It's a mark of distinction.
It is a distinctive mark upon something.
For example, whatever that you own, for instance, whatever books that you own, what do you do you put your name on it. So your name that you write on the book, what does that become a Sema, a distinctive mark. And if 50 copies of that particular book are placed in one place, and you wonder which one is yours? What are you going to do? You're just gonna look at the SEMA. And that's it, you'll be able to recognize your book. So Sema is a distinctive markup on something, so you will recognize them with their SEMA. Now, what's their Sema? What's their characteristic sign? What's their distinguishing mark, it is their sign of humidity. It is their sign of exertion, the sign of
fatigue on their faces,
the sign of fatigue on their faces of tiredness on their faces, or the sign of the way that they are dressed, the way that they're walking, the activities that they're involved in.
So for example, what would I do with it? Sometimes you'd be so hungry, so tired, and the profits or losses and when he would see him, then he would give him food, he would give him milk, he would give him something to eat or drink. Why? Because you can tell from the face of the person if he is hungry.
If he's tired, if he's thirsty, or what?
And many times despite seeing the signs, what do we do? We tend to ignore them completely. And it's not necessary that the other person has to be very poor. You see a person and you can see them tired, you can see them hungry, you can see them thirsty. And if you have something, why shouldn't you give it to them?
So that even when we see my home, you're going to recognize them by their sign. And some say that their Sema in particular is that larious aluna, NASA it however, they do not ask the people persistently.
The one in half is from lamb half from the word laugh and laugh is to wrap or cover something. So alpha is to demand something insistently to demand something persistently. It's as if the beggar or the one who is asking, he has wrapped himself on who, the one whom he is asking from any does not leave him until and unless he gets something. Because this is what we'll have is to ask to demand insistently, persistently, do not leave until the other gifts something
so nice, I don't know NASA will have this is not their way they do not beg in the first place. And if they do ever ask, they do not ask persistently.
So you have to go and recognize them. And remember that everybody is not able to recognize such people. It is only those people who have some interest in others, who have some concern for other human beings who have some compassion in their hearts. They're the ones who were able to recognize these people. They're able to recognize the need of the other
one of them Phil Coleman hiring, and whatever that you spent of any good for in the lobby here I name then Allah is Knowing of it. Allah is fully aware of it.
So whatever thing that you give anything at all that you do, Allah is aware of it. So why should you not spend on such people? Because you are going to be rewarded for it.
Instead of hashing it number eight, we learn linkara Elmo hygena Latina. Do you mean daddy him what unworthy him? Yeah, but the horna problem in Allah He wouldn't wanna when sorona la hora Sula, who? Allah ikaho Masada deikun for the poor immigrants who were expelled from their homes and their properties, seeking bounty from Allah and His approval, and supporting Allah and His Messenger, there is also a shared, meaning they should also be given something. Those are the truthful, truthful ones in what in their claim of a man and in their proving themselves to be true believers.
That listen to the recitation.
Little pseudo levina.
As for this characteristic of these companions, Elias alluded to it however, they do not ask others persistently. This is something very important. But sometimes we want something, we need something and what do we do? We don't leave the other until we have it.
It's not just with those people who are begging. Sometimes it's with our own children as well. That they keep asking they keep asking they keep demanding until the poor mother until the poor father just gives up and he's like take it.
And this is a characteristic that is disliked. We learn from a Hades. Remember, he recorded that oh, sorry to learn who he said that my mother sent me to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam to ask him for help. But when I came to him, I sat down. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam faced me and said to me, money, stoner, ohana, hula, whoever felt satisfied, that Allah will enrich him. Whoever is modest, Allah will make him decent. And whoever is content than Allah will suffice for him. Whoever is satisfied with whatever he has, then what happens Allah will enrich him. Whoever is modest, Allah will make him decent. Whoever is content than Allah will suffice for him, and whoever asks people
while having a small amount
He will have begged other people.
So when a person has something and still he is asking others for more for increase, what is that called? begging? This is what the prophet said about the sunset, for God, I'll have it have the same word has been used, then he has, in fact that we will, I will say a little bit on who said that I said to myself, I have a Campbell, and indeed it is worth more than a small amount.
So he went back without asking the profit sort of lotusland for anything.
So we see that if a person has something, he should be contented with it.
And if you want more, asked who was the provider, the one who provides everybody, you and everybody else, people are not providers at all, they cannot give this and the person who asks other people, then what is he doing? He is making nice aluminous will have these however, they've been praised over here. They don't ask other people and look how allies requesting for them. Allies encouraging us to spend on them, because they're not going to ask ever. So Allah makes it duty of other Muslims to spend up on these people.
I number 274.
I live in a uniform corner and while at home, those people who spend their wealth, who spend their money, their properties, what they own, what they love, what they have earned, what they like for themselves. They spend it were in allows way to please Allah. When do they spend belatedly in the night, when they're handy? And the day
meaning they spend during the night and the spend during the day? Whenever they get the opportunity? If it's at nighttime, they don't wait for morning. If it's in the morning that they get the opportunity to spend. They don't wait for the night. Whenever they get the opportunity they spend. How else do they spend? Sylvan Sivan secretly wirelend Ethan and also openly. Again, whenever they have the opportunity they spend, they spend secretly confidentially in private without telling anyone and openly as well. I learned Ethan as well. Why? Why do they spend openly because that is the opportunity that they get at that particular time.
For example, if you are in a particular place, and you want to give sadaqa but there are other people over there, and you find it's a very good time to give sadaqa Are you going to wait? If you wait, you might lose the opportunity. You might forget afterwards. The money that you have right now, it might get spent elsewhere. So Ceylon wirelend eaten, meaning they spend whenever they had the opportunity.
So over here, Allah subhanaw taala concludes the ayat of spending in his way.
Where all of this begin from?
Yeah, are you Hello, Dina Amano, or you have believed all of you should spend. And then Allah subhanaw taala explained to us as to what to spend, what not to spend, how to spend where to spend an hour Allah encourages us at the end, that those people who spend their wealth at night and in the day, secretly and openly, Allah only have what we call is a man in every state. And at all times, then for them, they will have their reward.
So basically, those people who spend at every opportunity, they're the ones who are being praised over here, for the home as your home then for them is their reward. And where is this reward? In that'll be him it is with their Lord, it is with Allah soprano, tada it is secure. And it is also very immense, when I hope when I lay him and there is no fear upon them in this dunya or in the pharaoh or at the time of death, whatever we are known, nor will they have any regrets at all, nor will they have any worries Why? Because sadaqa increases the confidence of a person. And when a person gives in a loss way, then he increases in his stomach.
And when he has to walk or when he has confidence in Allah, then obviously he does not have any fear. Nor does he have any regrets in the dunya or in the
so we see over here that a loss of profiler is encouraging the believers to spend at all times at every occasion, at every opportunity. Don't miss out on any chance. Even if you can give a little bit a cent a penny, something very small, only one candy. Only one thing, whatever that you can get, give it don't miss any opportunity.
Spend during the night and the day secretly and openly, they don't miss out on any chance, they will have the reward with a law. That is very great
So we have learned from these verses that Allah subhanaw taala wants from us that we should develop that character of giving. We should develop the character of sharing of compassion, of being concerned, of being considerate about the needs of the others, and give preference to them over ourselves.
And when a person becomes like this, then he spends at every occasion, every possibility, every opportunity that he finds, he does not wait for the perfect chance for the perfect opportunity.
Many times we delay doing good deeds, right? No, I'm too young right now. I don't work right now. Only my husband is working. I'm still not married. I'm still like this, or I'm still like that. And we wait. But what does Allah say over here? If at night, they spent they don't wait for the morning. Remember that Hades about that man who went out at night to give this other
at night? Why at night, because sometimes when you give something during the night, other people don't find out.
And during the day, everybody finds out at night, you're tired, you're worried in the morning, you're happier, you're fresh in every mood, sometimes, and we're very sad. We're only concerned about ourselves. And we think that we are the ones who are suffering the most in dystonia. And we forgot about the needs of the other people. And when we're very happy, then we become very generous. But in every situation in every hand with equaliser man, and every time as well, at every occasion.
I was in cooperative education. And there I met a woman and it was near Christmas time. So she was sharing her son's letter to Santa with me. And basically in their letter to Santa, they write about all the good deeds that they did throughout the year. So this little boy, he I think he was like three or four year old, he's writing about how, when he broke his cracker and shared it with his friend, he gave his friend the bigger piece, and he kept the smaller piece for himself. So even as little as that will help us under the attachment as long as we're doing it sincerely for the sake of
something very tiny, very insignificant, giving a bigger piece to the other, getting something that you want for yourself to the other. That is something that is required of us, the character of giving the personality of giving, not just being selfish and thinking about only yourself, but thinking about others, being concerned about others.
Many times we see in the dunya people spend a lot on themselves, on their houses, on their education, on their vacation, on their different things on their clothes, on their jewelry, so many things people spend their money on. But at the end of the day, still, they're worried. Still, they're concerned, they have health, and they have prison. But when a person spends as well, for the sake of Allah, when he gives it to those who need then that is what really brings happiness to you.
You don't get happiness by receiving things, you get happiness by giving things that is when you get true happiness.
A song just wanted to share something with you I don't know if you'll all notice that the examples Allah smart Allah gives us in the Quran are daily things that you see every day in your life. Even if you look at this grass, like how they showed you the wheat in the corner, divisional summertime, you see the condors growing all the exams Allah Allah gives us it's not something out of the world. Simple example that you see every day. You see a little flower that's growing in has a little seeds from that one seed that falls how many other plants grow. These simple examples nothing exotic, simple examples which we can take. Not something difficult unless mother knows mankind but we are
very negligent. But now it's fall coming honey we are looking at the leaves that are changing color right now. It's absolutely beautiful. The Orange is the yellow the reds and you start to get brown Of course they're all fall down but appreciate that think of Alice Martha and think of this beautiful carpet she's Canada you get the four seasons. Absolutely amazing. Another stolen just keep talking about what the right hand gives the left hand should not know my father may Allah bless his soul. always told us this when we were kids. Of course when your child you don't understand that
What your father's telling you? And even the night that he passed away one of his friends saying that when he was going to the mosque, he was just telling this friend that, you know, what are we going to take with us in this world nothing. And he just emptied his pocket. I don't know what was in his pocket. But apparently everything that he had, he just gave it to the people that are sitting in front of the mosque. And that same night my father passed away. So I would seek advice. I imagine we don't think how long are we going to live? We waiting for tomorrow, don't wait for tomorrow. It's always too late sometimes.
And this last brothers mentioned at the end of those who spend during the night, and during the day, sometimes we just wait for for the time that we have more money. And then we will give. But how do you know? What if you don't get more money? Are you going to lose the opportunity to give no, give whatever that you can we wait for that perfect human Russian when when feeling very good, then I will give sadaqa know, once we have read these verses, then what should we do? Whatever we can afford, whatever we can do give that because we never know what sadhaka might elevate us in our ranks and multiply their work for us many, many times, we don't know.
And it also shows that Allah subhanaw taala wants us to have a habit of spending, because they're spending all the time night day secretly, openly. Why? Because it's a habit. What is it that you do in the night in the day in front of people and in private, something that's a part of you, it's your habit, you do it all the time, you can't live without doing it.
So this is a habit of giving. There are lots of turns out a one says to help.
Sometimes we give only when there's a disaster. And as soon as the media stops, the coverage or the reports are reduced, or people are not talking as much about it than ours, or the court also reduces, isn't it.
And then when there's a big hype again, then we give,
but those whose habit is to get, they live all the time.
So not just in the month of Ramadan, not just at the time of read, not just when they're suffering from a calamity, not just when they have a lot of money, but whenever they can.
For example, if a person is dependent on their parents and their parents give them money so that they can buy books for school and pay their fees and apply for themselves while they're in school. So how can they give sadaqa? Remember that the money that your parents have given you? Yes, they've given it to you for a particular reason. And you should use it in that particular way. Because they have given it to you for that reason. It's not appropriate that they've sent you to learn, and you go giving everything in charity, and then you can't study anymore, because you don't have money to pay your fees. Obviously, that's not appropriate. But remember that when you buy your own food, can
you not share some with the person who's sitting next to you? Of course you can. When you go buy grocery for yourself? Can you not buy an extra candy or an extra chocolate bar for a person who's living with you? Of course you can.
When you buy washroom supplies for yourself, are you going to put your name on every single thing that belongs to you the soap, this bar soap is mine. And this shampoo is mine and you cannot use it? No, you can share these things as well.
And sometimes it's amazing that everybody's sharing so much, that you have to find the opportunity to get some things that you get the time to share with other people. Sometimes this also happens. So if we're all those who give, then we can find different different opportunities.
If for example, a woman is not working and her husband gives her money, does he have the right to know where she's spending that money? It's better to inform him because he might be encouraged as well. And sometimes if you know that they're not going to like it. Then use your wisdom and mention only a little bit and only mention the positive side. And eventually they will also appreciate the fact that you're giving
Yes, Sivan definitely gets more reward. Of course, it brings more reward. It's more secure, it's safer, but into this other part binary money. That's also very good. It's excellent.
There's no sin as long as that thing actually belongs to you.
For example, the husband gives you money to buy groceries, and he don't buy proper food and he's like, Where's the food? I'm hungry. Why am I getting rice every day and no meat.
Sometimes you do something good and you tell your parents and they get very happy with it or you tell your husband and he's very happy with it. So is it okay to tell them as long as you're near is not just to make them happy, not just to make them happy. Of course the person should try a woman should try to make her husband happy child should try to make his parents happy. But that should not be the main need. The main idea is to please Allah soprano.
These verses are specifically talking about spending wealth. However, we should remember that Kumar often said every good deed is a charity. Whether it is a smile or helping somebody or giving your spot to somebody or making room for the person who
Sitting next to you.
We have learned about the importance the reward of spending. And unfortunately, we are human beings and obviously in scientists from this end forgets. Sometimes we've read all of this, we've understood it, it's written in our books, but with the passage of time, we also forget. So it's very important that we put some reminders for ourselves so that we can continue spending in the wave on last panel data and we can also encourage other people who are living with us to also spend in the wave Allah.
Let's listen to the recitation of these verses.
