out there him in the shape of a gene Bismillahirrahmanirrahim lesson number 103 pseudo Toba is number 16 to 28
and has ever done unto trochu do you think that you will be left as you are?
Well, I'm Jada Miller who levena jaha domain calm, while Allah has not yet made evident, those among you who strive for his cause, what does he do women do Neela he whenever su de Waal and me Nina what aegir. And they do not take other than Allah, His Messenger, and the believers, as intimates? Will la hobbylink Bhima Dharma Loon. And Allah is acquainted with everything that you do.
The believers are being addressed over here that are hirsutum do you think? Have you just assumed this? Have you just thought about this yourself?
Why do you think like this, meaning you should not think like this,
um, has ever done. And the word hirsutum is from the root letters has seen but has been is to have an assumption, or thought about something that one wishes in his heart to be true.
You understand, he's not certain about it, but he wishes he hopes in his heart that it will become true. So I'm hesitant to just think, and you want that you should never be tested, you should never be tried. That just you say that you're a believer, and you should be accepted like that. And that you will not be put into a difficult situation that will show that you're really a believer, and has a bottom and that Roku that you will be left, meaning you will be left in the state that you are in right now.
Without any tests without any trials, without any difficulties. While I'm while not yet yharnam in there who Allah knows, meaning Allah has not yet known,
isn't it that Allah subhanaw taala is Arlene and unnamable you and his knowledge is not limited to the past, present or the future? Yes.
So what does it mean by this? Well, Amelia and Amelia who, meaning Allah has not yet made known, because this column over here refers to an off roof, which is when Allah subhanaw taala makes evident what is already in his knowledge. Do you understand when Allah makes evident, what is already in his knowledge? Like for example, Allah subhanaw taala knows about the state of the heart of every single person. What is the level of his belief? how honest he is how sincere he is, Allah knows already. But Allah exposes that a lot shows that Allah makes that evident how through different situations. So while I'm here lemon law, who Allah has not yet known, meaning he has not
yet made known, he has not yet made evident who who has not yet made evident alladhina those people who Jadoo those who strive in the cause of illness.
So you think that just because you claim to be a believer, you will be left as is and you will not be tested? You will not be checked that how committed Are you with your Eman? how committed are you to Allah soprano data and how will that be known whether your Eman is really true or not, whether you are really have mina hochkar How will that be known? That when a person does jihad in the way of Allah subhanaw taala that choses truthfulness is sincerity?
What is Jihad? Jihad who is from the word Jihad? And what is You had me It's from the word God as well as jahad which is to strive one's utmost
to put in one's utmost effort to put in one's maximum ability to achieve something or to remove something, this is the literal meaning of the word jihad. And from this do you have is used for the effort that a person puts in to serve the deen of Allah soprano.
And remember, there isn't just one way of serving the deen of Allah. There are many ways, many, many ways because each person has been given a different ability, a different skill. And now you can live Allahu nevsun in wasaga. So each person is obligated with whatever that he is capable of doing. So is that a person puts in his maximum ability to serve the deen of Allah. For some, it could be by striving to learn and striving to learn means putting in your maximum effort to learn not just one aspect of it, but learning
One thing after the other, and not just learn whatever is offered to you, but struggle to learn, perhaps travel to learn, go to different places, spend your money, put in your time, put in your energy, spend hours and hours to study, keep revising, spend years to study, this is what a form of jihad,
a form of struggling in the way of a law to serve the deen. This is what jihad is.
Similarly, in other situations, it would be defending the need. For instance, when a person goes to battle, now, when a person goes to battle, that's not something easy, it's very difficult, especially when you have to spend your own money. When you go, you will have to compromise on your family life, on your time that you'll be spending to make money. So there is a lot of effort that is involved. But why is the person doing that? To serve the deen of Allah.
So you think that you can just claim that you're a believer, and that's it. And you don't need to do jihad, you don't need to serve the need of a loss of panel data. You have to do that. Because when you will do that, that will show that you are of the sincere believers.
Well, am I yeah, lemon, lemon, Latina, jaha Domingo. So the first condition is, the first test is of jihad. The second test is of love. And how is that mentioned over here? Well, I'm near the Hebrew and they have not taken meaning these people have not taken Min junella he besides Allaah, one arasu D, one Mini.
So they have not taken besides Allah, His Messenger, and the believers as well. As intimates, meaning they're only intimate friends, close friends are Who? Allah, His Messenger and the true believers.
So when a person passes the test of jihad, and when he passes this test of love, then it shows then it is made evident that this person is a sincere believer.
Now the question is, what is the word? What is
the word what ej is from the root letters? Well, and then g one AJ, jelly G. Two literally definition of what does it mean?
jelly jelly, jelly, Fie, some nuclear.
To go inside, right? luge is to enter into a tight and narrow place. This is what the word will do, which is to enter into a tight and narrow place to penetrate.
And from this, the word is also used for a cave, in a mountain, where people enter to be secure from rain, or things like that. So just imagine people are traveling through mountains, and all of a sudden it begins to rain. Where will you find shelter, perhaps under a tree, if you cannot find a tree, maybe you find a hole in the mountain, you will enter that even if that hole is very small, even if that cave is very tiny. So in order to go there, you have to enter into the mountain, you have to enter into the hole. This is what we're leaders.
And from this, the word religion is used for such friendship that has entered the Cave of your heart that has entered your heart, you understand that has taken room that has taken space in your heart.
Because some people were friends with just on the surface, there's only Hi Hello. And that's it. And there are other people with whom you share your secrets with or you share your thoughts with you share your feelings with you take their advice. You think about them. They share their matters with you, you share your affairs with them. So there is a deep connection with them.
It is such friendship that has settled in the heart that has taken root in the heart.
According to him, unfortunately, he said, Well, he did allegedly, the villager of a person is Mayor de Beadaholique at Emory done in less than a person whom he trusts with regards to his personal affairs. And he only shares those matters with him.
He is special, a special person, a special friend,
you understand. And at that level nobody else has there.
You only share your secrets with you. Your best friend, isn't it so you don't go out talking to random people, people whom you just sit in class with and you just tell them about everything you will through your special friends who are at a certain level. You share those matters with them. And it's possible that they're not at the level of your friend in the sense that you don't go eat out with them. You don't you know, go shop with them, but it's someone whom you trust when it comes to taking advice.
You ask them for advice. When it comes to sharing your feelings, you share your feelings with them. You understand? Sometimes it could be a person who is higher than your level, perhaps it could be someone's boss, someone's parent, someone's teacher, different levels, right? Different people. So a leader is a special friend with whom one shares his secret affairs with private matters with and he takes him as a confident,
meaning they have not taken besides Allah, His Messenger and the believers anyway.
Do you understand? Who are their religion? Who are their advisors, their counselors, whose advice to the Sikh,
Allah, His Messenger, and the believers? Will la hubiera be metamodel. And Allah is fully aware of whatever that you do.
As I mentioned to you the address over here is to the believers, but which believers in particularly
those believers who have not yet completely become free of their pre Islamic bonds of friendship, as well as relationships with other people.
And the announcement of Bara became a great test for them. As we learned earlier, at the beginning of this order, that there was a declaration of disassociation from who, from the machine. And in that Declaration was the fact that no mistake would be allowed to live here anymore. And after four months, that's it, no mushrik can stay over here, he must leave if he wishes to remain as much stick. Now, given the Arab society in mind, the people who have become Muslim, they were not outsiders.
They were the people of the same society.
They were people of other people of Medina, all over Arabia.
So from one household, three people became Muslim two people remained as mushrik. Just imagine,
you know, sometimes you hear a person who has become Muslim, you hear Okay, their mother also became Muslim, or their brother also became Muslim, however, the parents are still non Muslim, or the children are still non Muslim or the rest of the siblings are still non Muslim. Now, just imagine this is not the case of one family. This is not the case of two families, but the entire society, entire society, from the same household from the same family, there are some people who are Muslim, and some who are non Muslim.
So for some people, it was extremely difficult to accept that we cannot have any bonds of friendship or relationships with them anymore in the sense that we have to give preference to Allah and His Messenger above them. Now for those Muslims who have accepted Islam at the beginning, and they had done hegira, from Mecca to Medina, or those who had welcomed the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in Medina, or they had participated in battle with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it was easy for them, or it had become easier for them at least. However, at the conquest of Makkah, many people became Muslim. And for them to accept this, that after four months, you know, our Muslim family members are
gone from here. This was extremely difficult for them.
So Allah subhanaw taala is asking that do you think you will not be tested? Do you think you will not be tested? Do you think you can just say that you're a believer, and that's it.
What is really going to show the truthfulness of your image and the fact that you're striving in the way of a loss of time, and the fact that you will only give preference to Allah, His Messenger and the believers, and even your relatives, even your relationships, your friendships will not come in the way of Allah and His messenger.
If you think of it, leaving your money, leaving your house, leaving your city is easy.
It is easy. People do that even for the sake of dounia when they migrate from one country to another, however, when it comes to leaving your family, when it comes to leaving your own brothers and sisters, then it becomes a challenge. A big challenge, it becomes extremely difficult. And we're not talking about the society that is today in which sometimes people don't even care about their own family members. We're talking about the Arab society, where people were together as families.
That even if the difference with one another, they would still remain united. They would still stay united.
So Allah subhanaw taala is asking that you think you know you will not be tested. You have to prove your email.
Until earlier Milan is number 179 return my Canon Law who later on me Nina Allah And tomorrow he had a Misa hadiza Minato. Allah will not leave the believers in the state in which you are in right now. Meaning Allah will not let the sincere believers stay mingled with the rest of people who are not sincere in their email until he distinguishes the wicked from
Good, he will distinguish who is honest, and who is not honest, who is more committed and who was not that committed? Who is it that really does have lots of penalty because everyone claims that they love Allah, everyone, every Muslim claims that he loves him, even if he doesn't praise Allah. You know when you ask people which person is it that you really look up to? They will say profits are a bonus, but when it comes to following you, so no, no, but they will claim that the love of Allah and the messenger
so everybody claims but what is it that proves that love is two things first of all Jihad and secondly, taking a look at the messenger and the believers as well he just for me,
in total uncovered it number one, we learned a heresy Vanessa and youth Roku and YOLO Amana?
Do the people think that they will be left to say we believe and they will not be tested? They think they will not be tried. Allah will definitely try them. Sometimes these trials come in the form of difficult situations in the form of persecution from other people, isn't it? Like for example, the people of Makkah the Muslims of Makkah, they went through the difficulty of persecution. Correct. Sometimes these difficulties come through, you know, difficult situations that a person is in, in his life, for example, loss of money, loss of a friend, loss of health. All of these are what difficult trials and situations.
And sometimes, trials come tests come through the commands that are lockups through the commands that are lucky
that for one person, perhaps wearing the hijab is like doing the impossible. It's extremely difficult, extremely difficult. You may wonder why what's the big deal? It is difficult for some people, for some people praying the Salah, extremely difficult for some people, giving priority to the deen learning the Quran, serving the deen giving preference to the deen above their own careers. It is difficult. However, only when a person does that. Then it shows the truthfulness, the sincerity of his belief.
And now if you look at it, two tests are mentioned over what are they first of all jihad. And secondly taking only a lot the messenger and believers as close friends.
Now if you look at it, jihad is a criteria for true email. Why? Why is you have the criteria for true email?
Think about it. Why Jihad
isn't enough to just say that yes, I am a believer. I'm praying Masada. I'm fulfilling all of my obligations. I'm a good righteous Muslim. And that's enough. Why do I have to go the extra mile and do jihad and serve the deen? Why?
That when a person strives to serve the deen, then he has to leave his comfort zone, isn't it? So he has to leave? Sometimes what he likes what he finds pleasure in what he enjoys doing. And he has to go the extra mile. And the thing is your actions What do they prove? What isn't the heart, the law what it proves what isn't about and so if under law here you are serving the dean that shows that in your heart, you really love the dean. If you just claim that you love the dean, and in your actions, you're not serving the dean and what kind of love is that?
It's not true love. It's not sincere love.
So two tests are mentioned over here.
Jihad and taking Allah, His Messenger and believers as intimate. And when a person passes these two tests that shows that he is a true believer that shows that he is an honest believer.
Otherwise people can claim whatever they want, but their claims may be useless. Their claims may be meaningless, if they don't show it through their actions
mccannon mushrikeen it is not for them which became meaning it is not suitable. It is not permissible. It is not appropriate for the mustachian. What I hear Moodle massage de la he that they should maintain the mosques of Allah that they should maintain the worship places. It is not suitable for the Muskegon
when the declaration of Baraka was made.
What did that announced What did that make clear
that after this year, machine are not going to be here anymore. They're not coming for Hajj, they're not performing at the left.
After four months, they're not going to be in the Arabian Peninsula either. And if they leave the Arab Peninsula, they cannot come visit at the time of Hajj either.
You can only come here as a Muslim.
So for some people, it was difficult to accept that Why? Because it was their own relatives who were still Muslim. Which is why different
Previous I mentioned that you think your Iran will be accepted as it is you have to show that you really love a lot more than the machine and how will you show that by implementing the commands of Allah by accepting them? And over here, the reason is being given that why should the machine not be allowed to come and worship at the house of Allah? Why? Because some people may wonder that Okay, fine, even if they're not living over there, they should be at least allowed to come in, you know, worship. So, why not? Unless the panel data says McKenna it is not suitable, it does not suit them, it is not appropriate for them, it is not permissible for them. They have no right.
Who the machine that they should populate that they should maintain the massage it of Allah.
The word Dr. Moodle is from the root letters are a meme or a motto. Remember, remodel is to fill something with life, to populate depopulate something to populate a place. You know, for example, if there is a building, and there are people living over there, you say that there's so much life, right? Whereas another house that is desolate, nobody's living over there. What do you see that there's no life over there?
So remodel is to fill something with life to populate it. And it's the opposite of what we learned earlier in total Bukhara woman of the mummy man menorah Messiah to the law he
and youth karate has mobile was
fedorova. And he strove for what the hub of the masjid What does he mean, when a building or when a crop is laying waste desert, no one is there to take care of it. No one is there to maintain it to look after it.
Just imagine a house that is built
house that has been set up. And nobody is there to take care of it. Nobody's there to live over there. What's going to happen after some time,
what's going to happen? Eventually, it's going to be destroyed. It's just laying waste. You know, sometimes it happens that, for example, if in a particular community there is a factory or a nuclear plant or something like that, and if there is an explosive or something, or there's a high risk, then they have to evacuate immediately. And sometimes people leave even their belongings. And there have been times where people have gone back to those places and seen and if you've ever seen video clips of such places, it is lined doesn't it sometimes, you know the ceilings have broken down and trees are going out of the house. The windows are broken. This is what when a place is lying
desolate when nobody's there to maintain it. And Ramallah is when a place is alive. When people are living over there. When people are populating the place they're taking care of the place
and remodel is of two types. First of all, a mala is tangible.
What does it mean by that? It is in the physical sense, populated place How? First of all, it includes constructing, building the place.
Over here in particular, Yamamoto massages alone, massages are mentioned certain amount of machinists, building a machine.
And then not just building it, but beautifying it as well adorning it
the sense that you don't just have, you know, four walls and a roof, but you have some paint on the walls, you have a nice carpet on the floor, he has a nice light, doesn't mean you have to have decorations all over. But it should look nice, right? So adorning the place as well. Similarly, not just adorning but protecting looking after it.
Looking after it. Like for example, there is a security alarm. Or there are people who stay in the masjid to make sure that nobody comes in destroys the budget. Nobody comes in misuses the place. So protecting the place looking after the place. Similarly cleaning the masjid. This is also what in taking care apart of taking care of the mustard cleaning it. Because if it's not clean, if it's not well maintained, then how will people be able to worship over there they won't be able to fulfilling all of its needs, the needs of the masjid, for instance, the places cleaned or the supplies are brought. And physical amount of also means that people are present for worship. That if you have a
very nice Masjid, it smells beautiful. It's clean speaking span.
It's up to date, everything is nice. But at the time of Salah, only the man is there. Only two three people are there. Is that place populated. It's not populated. So first of all remodel is tangible. Second is intangible. What does it mean by that? That along with everything else, people also worship over there.
It's not just about attending the gatherings over there. So that you have a huge number of people.
You understand like for example, every day 50 people come up for example, in the month of Ramadan, the masjid is full, okay the masjid is full, but how many people are actually praying? Are they doing either or are they just sitting and having a thought and then they leave.
So, intangible is that people come there for a better or better is established, do you understand? Not that at the time of Salah, there is no one to give Do
you understand? Or that at the time of solder, there is no one to pray
or Salah is delayed and then it is prayed
to understand, like for example, further is supposed to be at a particular time. And when do they prefer it right when it's about to come to an end. like two minutes before this is not properly populating the masjid. This is not properly looking after the masjid. Similarly, in the intangible amount of the masjid, it includes that there should be the spirit of Dean as well, that when people come, they don't just come to play basketball. They don't just come to rent the hall over their for their weddings, but they come there, they get some benefit. They increase in their guidance, they increase in their love for Allah. They learn something from there as well. So Masjid is not just a
place where people come just to have their social gatherings just to offer their full salah and that's it. But there should be more to that. That people increase in their Eman. They are benefited in their Deen when they visit the masjid. Not that when they go to the masjid. The only thing that they're told is give donation and then leave. No. This is what amount of the masjid is that there is a spirit of the things people learn people benefit. There's a dire there is a there is unity. The people who are working over there, they're united. Not that they're always bickering, they're always fighting, always arguing for higher positions. So Ramada is both tangible as well as intangible.
There's a hadith Prophet sallallaahu Selim said there will come a time for my people when massage, mula tune where he or her Robin Min alhuda massage their massage, it would be Amina, they will be very well populated. They'll be full of people, many people will be coming, however, the massage it would be horrible man and Buddha, but they will be empty of right guidance. There will be no right guidance in the masjid.
People will come they will not increase in their Eman. They will not increase in their right behavior.
Masjid will not be a source of guiding people
you understand? So over here it is say that it is not permissible for the machine, that they should be the maintainers of the masjid. That they should be the ones who are looking after the masjid. In both the tangible sense as well as the intangible sense. They have no right to visit the masjid, to practice their rituals over there to sit in the Harlem to perform their polytheistic practices or even maintain the Carver take care of the Kaaba, it is not their right to do that.
And over here massage Allah has been mentioned and which most of this is referring to in the context must either hello
and from this it is generalized because the plural word has been used massage it that if they are not allowed to look after and visit and worship at the Mr. Harun then the same applies to all other massages as well. So it is not permissible for them to do that.
Why? Why not? Because Shaheed Dina while they are witnesses do what Allah unfussy him against themselves over bill coffee with the disbelief while they themselves witness, to confer against themselves, meaning they themselves are performing actions of
the masjid of Allah is built for what? the worship of Allah. So if a person comes over there, and does Kufa, should he be allowed to come there? No, because he's not fulfilling the objective. The reason as to why that Masjid was constructed, the beta log was constructed Why? For the worship of Ibrahim or an s&m build the karma Why? So that people would worship Allah alone.
So if these wish the king are coming over there and doing powerful then they should not be allowed to come there.
shahidi chimed in as a Florida showerhead. And who is showerhead? One who bears witness to something so they're not
worthy of maintain
The karva while at the same time they see they profess their practice polytheism and shake his cuff. So I'll cover over here refers to ship, as well as go for a boo, the messenger sallallahu wasallam.
You understand, while they themselves are doing cover, what cover is this, first of all?
And secondly, denial of the profits on a lot isn't
that the question is how were they witnesses against themselves over the comfort that they were doing? How that their actions, their rituals, they demonstrate
especially the actions that they performed at the beta law. For instance, when they will perform the toa or in the Hajj, they will pronounce the 10 via right like for example, when we also go for how do we say lobby kolomela bagel bagel actually cola cola bake right. So they will also pronounce the salvia. And what would they say that love Baker, legendary collector, Elijah Regan, who Allah, them Li qu Mama Mama, that Here I am at your service, oh Lord, there is no associate with you, you have no partner,
except for one partner that you have. And you have mastery over it. But he does not possess any mastery over you. You understand? So in their rituals, they would pronounce salvia and which had clear words of
words of COVID shahina and for symbol cough. Similarly, when they will do for wife, how would they do it without any clouds
clapping and whistling.
And that is a place where a person should go before a loss a penalty in humanity, the robot can tell Don't run.
And when a person is walking around without any clouds clapping and whistling, does that show the diver it doesn't show the donor at all. Similarly, they have placed approximately 360 idols in and around the carbon, how many 360 and the inner world of the carbon they had drawn over their portraits, images of idols of their saints and it is also said that they had made idols of Ibrahim and is married or hustler.
They had built them and they have placed them inside the Kaaba. And these idols they were holding divining arrows.
So all of this is covered, how can they come and populate the masjid? How can they be given the charge of maintaining the masjid while they are committing code, whereas the masjid of Allah is built for the worship of Allah only.
Similarly, they denied the messenger sallallahu wasallam. And all of their actions went against the teachings of Islam. So if this is their character, if this is their behavior, if this is their way of life, they don't deserve to be the maintainers optimistic of Allah
who deserves to be the maintainer of the masjid.
Those people who believe in Allah who worship Allah alone, those who love Allah.
So shahina Allah and foreseen bulk of
Allah aka those meaning the machine, those people who are bearing witness to their own comfort by their own actions, they are happy about our model, all of their deeds are wasted. Why? Because they're doing all of these deeds based on what should
none of a person's deeds are acceptable.
Habitat armado all of their deeds are wasted within Natty home, Connie Dune and in the Hellfire, there'll be a biting eternity.
So how can you give the right of entry of worship in Carver, in the home to these machines? when they hear after their utter losers, because they're much taken out of their deeds are wasted.
How can you let them come and take over the car but how can you give them the chart you cannot?
This must have has been built for the worship of Allah. And it is your duty, that you must establish that over here. And if anyone is going against that, you cannot let them come here. Only those people who worship Allah should be allowed to come here. Because Allah is the one who created this entire Earth. Allah is the one who created all of these people. Why? So that Allah is worship? Shouldn't there be one place on the surface of the Earth? We're only allies worship, isn't it his right? Tell me isn't it his right? It is his right. Like for example, if there is a person who builds a house, who buys a house for example, the man
And the wife says, I want to design everything myself. I want to do everything myself. He says, Look, I paid for it. Let me choose one thing. Let me select one thing. This let me have control over one part of the house.
Isn't it justified? Isn't it fair? It's 100% fair. And Allah subhanaw taala Jelena. Jelena who he is the one who created the heavens and the earth. He is one who created all people for his worship. And here is one must wear a lot once that only he should be worshipped. And we're like, why? why that's not justified at all. This is not justice. We fight for the rights of people, we fight for the rights of animals, we fight for the rights of the environment. What about the rights of a law?
So we see that the machine their deeds will not be accepted. Why? Because, first of all, whatever they're doing, even if it's rituals, even if it's visiting the Kaaba, even if it's looking after the Kaaba, all of that is being done along the chick. And any action that is done with chick is useless, it is wasted intellectual anom 88 we learn when ashinoko all of the prophets are mentioned and then it is said that Willow Ashoka, the habitat and Homer clan, if they did check, all of their deeds would be wasted. wasted. similarity in some of the Zoomer is number 65. It is mentioned what are the oh here alayka what either Latina and kobika. Let in Ashoka laietana Rama look while at akuna Minal
ha serene, and it was already revealed to you and to those before you that if you should associate anything with Allah, anything with Allah, then all of your work would become worthless, and you would be surely among the losers. So first of all, their needs are wasted. Why? Because all of this they're doing with Schick.
And secondly, they were maintaining the Carver looking after the Carver populating the Kaaba. Why? Because it was a means of gaining a lot of honor. It was a status symbol
in that society.
Because whoever looked after the karma, whoever maintained the karma, whoever offered water to the pilgrims, he was considered to be very righteous, very righteous. And the Quraysh are the ones who will do that. The people of Makkah, especially they will do that. And all of the tribes of Arabia, they would really respect them, for serving the cover for taking care of the Carver for looking after the idols as well who were in the garbage, they would appreciate for that.
So they were doing this maintenance of the Carver for the sake of Allah? No. It was for the sake of earning dunya. It was a means of making more money, gaining more fame,
getting the praise of people in the dunya.
And generally people what kind of actions do they like? Those that are visible, those that can be seen by people? So this was an action that was seen by all people. All people all over Arabia, people acknowledge this fact. And they were very impressed by that.
And generally, the actions that are behind the scenes, people avoid them. Why? Because they're not seen. Right there behind the scenes. They're not seen by anyone. The machine, they will look after the cover, everybody would see it. That's why they would love to do it. But Allah subhanaw taala says they have no right because they're not even doing it for the sake of Allah. They're doing it to make money to earn more money.
Because when they would impress people like this, people will bring them a lot of gifts. People will bring them money. This was a source of business for them. This was a source of making a lot of money for them. So they use the masjid to earn money. So what does Allah say? They don't deserve to do that.
