I'm going to share my knowledge into smilla Rahim

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

lesson number 203. So total causes

00:00:11 --> 00:00:27

in our own Academy in homi Moosa indeed our own was from the people of Musa alayhis salaam. But what did he do? For Bahar lay him, but he tyrannized them. He rose up against the Bani Israel

00:00:28 --> 00:00:29

who was our own?

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

Our own as mentioned over here he was from the people of Masada, Salah, meaning he was from the Bani Israel

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

and his name was Tyrone been yes have been car has been levy been your coop. So he was basically from the descendants of

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

your Cobra listener. And he was the grandson of your coop Elisa Lam's grandson,

00:00:57 --> 00:01:01

and he was also a close relative of musasa.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:10

It is said that he was a son of husar, Islam's maternal aunt, and he was also his paternal cousin.

00:01:11 --> 00:01:18

So he was related to metabolism through both maternal and paternal relationship. And they were very closely related.

00:01:19 --> 00:01:24

And his name in the Torah is Cora KOR. Ah,

00:01:25 --> 00:01:34

it is said that qarun, he had even memorize the total, and he would read it very beautifully. So it wasn't that he was not knowledgeable of the dean.

00:01:36 --> 00:01:50

At the same time, he was also very good looking. And because of his good looks, he was known as Mina Worf. Who does monogamy. One was lit up. So he was that good looking. And he was also extremely wealthy.

00:01:52 --> 00:02:16

how wealthy was he? As we learned over here, that the keys of his treasures only would be carried by a group of strong men. This is how wealthy he was that he had so much wealth, that he had to lock it all up. And as he had locked up all that, well, just the keys to access those door houses, those keys would be carried by who by a group of strong men.

00:02:18 --> 00:02:43

And is that that musasa being a prophet of Allah He asked our own to pay zakat. Because Quran was extremely wealthy, he had a lot of wealth. And there were so many, many Israelis who were born, who were needy. So he asked for a loan to give the cat on as well. But Koran he became extremely upset. He refused to give Zakat and he became so angry and so incident that he left his nation and he joined forces with our own and his people.

00:02:44 --> 00:02:49

So he abandoned the Bani Israel and he went and joined him for their own and his people.

00:02:50 --> 00:02:57

And because of his wealth, because of his knowledge, because of his expertise, he gained a very high position near film.

00:02:58 --> 00:03:02

And it is said that he was number three after fit our own and hammer.

00:03:03 --> 00:03:20

In this soda we have learned about fit our own Hamon and now we're learning about qarun. In throttle movement, I have 2324 we learn what are called the osella Mousavi. Tina was silvani moonbeam. elaphiti owner wilhemina will call Luna for colusa.

00:03:22 --> 00:03:37

So who was Musashi Samson to fit our own Hamon and thirdly, our own so this is how high up he was in the Egyptian government in the Egyptian people. Why? Because of his knowledge, because of his expertise.

00:03:38 --> 00:04:19

So we see that he was a Muslim of his time. And at the same time, he was extremely wealthy. He was extremely intelligent, educated, good looking. And instead of being grateful for these blessings, and helping out the destitute and oppressed Bani Israel, what did he do? What did he do? Ferber warning him? He tyrannized them, he turned against them. He was from the Bani Israel. But because he was wealthy, he was more good looking. He had better friends. What happened? instead of helping out his own brothers and sisters who were being oppressed? What did he do for Bihar? Are they him?

00:04:20 --> 00:04:50

baja from the Tetris Bell lane. Yeah, buddy. But he literally means to desire and from that, but he is also to exceed limits, do leave moderation in pursuit of one's desires. that a person is just concerned about fulfilling his desires. He doesn't care about what the limits are. He doesn't care about you know that he's leaving moderation he's going to an extreme No, he just wants to fulfill his desire. He just wants to fulfill his wish. This is what bullying is.

00:04:51 --> 00:04:59

And then from this, the word bully is also used for transgression, for oppression, for tyranny because when a person just wants to fulfill his his

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

dyers, he does not care about any limits, then what does he end up doing? Being unjust, demonizing other people.

00:05:08 --> 00:05:18

So follow her or lay him, he turned against the bunny astray. He tyrannized how that he oppressed them.

00:05:20 --> 00:05:37

It is said that qarun because of who he was, he was from the Bani Israel. And he was also very high up in the Egyptian Government. He was very close to the fit our own, fit our own had appointed our own as the tax collector over the B'nai Israel.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:45

Let us imagine who were the Bani Israel, slaves, workers, laborers,

00:05:46 --> 00:05:58

their sons being slaughtered, their women being taken in as workers. Now just imagine if the people are this oppressed, and on top of that the little debt they make they have to pay tax on that.

00:05:59 --> 00:06:01

How difficult it would be for them to pay taxes.

00:06:03 --> 00:06:09

So what it for their own do he appointed our own to collect the taxes from the Ministry

00:06:10 --> 00:06:17

and qarun instead of being gentle towards the Bani Israel, that okay, you cannot give money, find out pay on your behalf.

00:06:18 --> 00:06:26

Instead of helping them instead of being gentle towards them. Instead of being lenient with them. He was very harsh and oppressive towards them.

00:06:27 --> 00:06:38

He had no mercy for them. Why? Because he was more wealthy. He was more influential. He had more power. He had better looks. Further Harlan him.

00:06:39 --> 00:07:00

What does this show to us? extreme arrogance, extreme ingratitude. Think about it. If you are a Muslim, yourself, and your own Muslim brothers and sisters are suffering, you can help them but you don't help them. Instead, you turn against them. This is something that is completely unacceptable.

00:07:01 --> 00:07:19

fibrillar lay him and on top of that, Allah subhanaw taala says we're attina who and we had given him mineral coluzzii of the treasures. And canoes is a plural of cans. And cans is used for a great amount of treasure.

00:07:20 --> 00:07:28

A great amount of treasure, a lot of wealth. But especially It is used for that treasure, which is hidden. It's not put on display.

00:07:30 --> 00:07:44

Yeah, sometimes people have money. And you can see it in the form of their car. You can see it in the form of the clothes that they wear in the form of the house that they live in, in the form of the trips that they take the vacation that they take all of that what does it reflect their money?

00:07:46 --> 00:07:51

But there are some other people who have a lot of money, but where did they keep it just in their bank account.

00:07:52 --> 00:08:11

On the appearance, they might seem to be those who are not that well off, but they have the money. They will not spend it, but they will just keep it this is what cans cans is what money that is hidden money that is concealed. It is not displayed.

00:08:13 --> 00:08:27

Now it doesn't necessarily meet the example I gave don't think that guns is that you hide your money and you appear to be poor. No, I'm just giving you the example. So that you understand that guns is hidden treasures, something that you don't put on display. You don't tell other people about it.

00:08:28 --> 00:08:33

But in particular guns is used for that wealth on with the cat is not given.

00:08:34 --> 00:08:56

Because there is no problem with having a lot of wealth. As long as a person is giving the hug of Allah. He is giving the hug of others there's absolutely no problem. When Is there a problem? When a person is not giving the cat he is only hoarding, collecting, keeping it for himself. And he's not getting the heck of a lot out of it.

00:08:57 --> 00:09:39

So far on he had been given canoes, notice plural. He hadn't been given just one plans, but many many treasures that he had hidden that he had concealed that he had secured. They were locked up, they were preserved. And they were preserved in store houses, in lock boxes in lockers. And there were so many that Matt in them fit who that indeed it's keys mafatlal is a plural of myth, the myth that is what key but it can also be the plural of master and master. It said that it can also be used for wealth that is secured wealth that is preserved that as well guarded.

00:09:41 --> 00:09:59

So over here My Father gives a meaning of keys, that indeed the keys of all those store houses where his wealth where his money where his treasures were secured. There were so many keys that they would let her know. Surely it would burden done over the roof efforts Manuel Hamza

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

What would burden the keys would heavily burden who will or spotty a band of who only have possessors of strength of people who are very strong and mighty?

00:10:13 --> 00:10:24

The word to know noon well Hamza know is to be heavy. And because of the weight of something, when a person is at the verge of collapsing.

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

Now, just imagine if something is extremely heavy, you're trying to carry it. But as you're carrying it, you can barely walk, you're at the verge of collapsing.

00:10:35 --> 00:10:41

You know, sometimes you're getting something extremely heavy, you're going up the stairs or down the stairs, and you don't know if you'll be able to make it.

00:10:42 --> 00:10:54

You don't know if you'll be able to make it. Why, because of the heavy weight. This is what no, is that something is weighing so heavily on you that you can barely walk, you can barely stand up.

00:10:55 --> 00:11:00

So who would these keys weigh heavily on? And

00:11:01 --> 00:11:02

who is respect?

00:11:03 --> 00:11:08

Respect is a band of strong men remember, we learned this and sort of use it.

00:11:10 --> 00:11:16

And it can be used for a group of men that are numbered between 10 and 40. between 10 and 40.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:26

And Anelka possessors of strength, so not just ordinary or super, but strong and mighty, are super.

00:11:27 --> 00:11:37

Imagine if they were carrying the keys of the store houses of the treasures of our own, these keys would weigh down on them heavily.

00:11:38 --> 00:11:41

Just imagine it was difficult for them even to carry the keys.

00:11:42 --> 00:11:45

There were so many, and they were so heavy.

00:11:46 --> 00:11:48

And you may wonder keys, how could they be so heavy.

00:11:50 --> 00:12:07

Remember that even these days, but definitely before the keys to like major big places or houses. They weren't small. Okay, they were big. You may have seen some old keys, they're very huge. This big. And this is just an ordinary size.

00:12:09 --> 00:12:12

If you ever come across a picture of the key of the car, but even that is huge.

00:12:14 --> 00:12:29

So in olden times people had huge keys, big keys, because these keys also even they were decorated. They weren't ordinary keys, they were crafted, designed, sometimes made of gold, or silver, or copper or some kind of precious metal.

00:12:30 --> 00:12:42

So first of all, they were big themselves. And secondly, there were so many This is why when an Ursa would carry them even they would find it difficult. So just imagine the amount of wealth that he possessed

00:12:43 --> 00:12:45

the keys, what do they reflect over here?

00:12:46 --> 00:12:48

The great amount of wealth that he possessed.

00:12:49 --> 00:12:51

This is how wealthy he was.

00:12:52 --> 00:13:17

So what happened if color when he said logo to him, camo is people who were his people, nobody Israel. So when his people said to him, let the four don't show off. Don't be arrogant, don't be exalted. Don't be too happy, over this wealth of yours, because in the law hilarya hibel very hain. Indeed, Allah does not like those people who exempt

00:13:18 --> 00:13:24

the for the for his run for and for his to be happy. Now, isn't it a good thing to be happy.

00:13:25 --> 00:13:48

Of course, it's a good thing to be happy, especially when a person has been given great blessings. When a person has been given blessings, he should be happy. Because when Allah gives a blessing to someone, he likes to see the author of that blessing on that person. Whether it is in the form of a smile, or it is in the form of gratitude, or it is in the form of using that blessing. Allah likes to see the author of that blessing.

00:13:50 --> 00:13:54

So far, is something that is good. However, remember that there's two types of files.

00:13:55 --> 00:13:57

One is for * called

00:13:58 --> 00:14:10

when the person's heart is happy when a person is happy in his heart, that are handed in that he is grateful to Allah. He is content, he is satisfied. He's positive, he's grateful.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:15

But the other kind of thought is for her neffs

00:14:16 --> 00:14:21

that when a person's knifes, his ego, his neffs becomes very happy.

00:14:23 --> 00:14:38

And when that becomes happy, when that gets out of control, then a person begins to show off. He becomes arrogant. He thinks whatever he has because of him. He thinks he's the best. He thinks he can do whatever he wants.

00:14:39 --> 00:14:47

So when his people said to him Latifah didn't mean that odd you shouldn't be happy about this wealth that Allah has given, you know, they meant Don't be exalted.

00:14:48 --> 00:15:00

Don't be arrogant, because Allah does not like those people who are Fetty hain who become so happy that they become arrogant and they begin to show off they don't humble themselves before.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:04

For Allah, rather they go on transgressing against others.

00:15:06 --> 00:15:09

Now what do we see over here something very important about the bunnies, right?

00:15:10 --> 00:15:24

So far we have seen it the bunny Israeli because of their slavery, they had faced a severe moral crisis and decline. But we see that despite everything, they had the sense that when you have wealth you shouldn't show off.

00:15:25 --> 00:15:26

A lot is not like those people who show off.

00:15:28 --> 00:15:32

And there's something that is very basic. So they had this understanding.

00:15:33 --> 00:15:49

And although the masses, many people amongst the Bani Israel, they will weaken their mind weaken their understanding, but there are still some people who had knowledge who recognized good from evil, and they enjoyed good and they also forbade evil.

00:15:51 --> 00:16:05

So this is something that we have to appreciate because many times when we talk about the Bani Israel, we talk very negatively. But we see that when Allah subhanaw taala mentions this, this shows that there were still some hide in them. And this is why Allah sent his help to them.

00:16:06 --> 00:16:12

And we see that showing off is something that no one likes to see. Even little children,

00:16:13 --> 00:16:21

little children, if one has a candy, and the other doesn't have a candy, and the one with the candy showing of the other children, they don't like him anymore, isn't it.

00:16:23 --> 00:16:39

So regardless of a person's age, regardless of his education, regardless of his social background, showing off is something that goes against good morals. You don't have to be extremely righteous and extremely knowledgeable to know that showing off is something that is wrong.

00:16:41 --> 00:16:58

We learned sort of headed at 23 well after for who we met at home, and not exalt in pride over what Allah has given you will law who lay your head bucola medallion for hood and Allah does not like every person who is self diluted and boastful. Allah doesn't like such people

00:16:59 --> 00:17:15

to the Bani Israel, they told him, let the fry they did now here in Mancha, and they also advise him, how do they advise him they said to him well bitterly and seek FEMA, in that which feel vague gives meaning of through

00:17:17 --> 00:17:25

that seek through that which attack Allahu Allah has given you, what Allah give him so much wealth.

00:17:26 --> 00:17:45

So this well, and it wasn't just wealth that he had been given, it was also knowledge, expertise. And not just that, but connections, authority, freedom. So all of these things that Allah has given you, you should be seeking through that.

00:17:46 --> 00:17:48

The home of the Hereafter,

00:17:50 --> 00:18:14

that whatever Allah has given you, in the form of wealth, or any other, you should use that to seek the home of the hereafter. What a good advice This is. Because if you look at it, if a person has money, he uses it, he enjoys it in this lunia if he enjoys it, only to the benefit of this dunya it's only temporary benefit.

00:18:15 --> 00:18:17

It's limited benefit.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:24

But if a person invests that in the Hereafter, then that is much better frame,

00:18:25 --> 00:18:25

isn't it?

00:18:26 --> 00:18:35

whenever a person is making money, what do other people advise him? Be careful with your spending, save, invest, you will need it later in your life.

00:18:37 --> 00:18:50

Right? So this is a very good advice that person can give to another. But we see the bunny is right there advising him that seek the womb of the hereafter through this well, look at all this money that Allah has given you, you can do so much with this. What does it show to us?

00:18:52 --> 00:18:56

That wealth in and of itself is not evil. But what is it that makes it evil?

00:18:57 --> 00:19:23

It's wrong use that when a person shows off when a person spends it in the wrong way. That is what makes wealth evil. But in and of itself. Wealth is what just a means a tool through which a person can earn great ranks in the hereafter. Or he can end up in the lowest ranks and the hellfire. It's up to him however he uses it. We see that once there were some companions who came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:19:24 --> 00:19:38

And they said to him that, you know, there are some other companions who are so wealthy and they given sadaqa they're gonna get ranks that are much superior to us. We're not that wealthy and they're wealthy. They're spending the wave a lot we don't spend in the wave of law, what can we do?

00:19:39 --> 00:19:59

So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he got them some call that read them and you will get the same reward. Now what happened to wealthy companions, they got to know what those cars were they started saying. So now they came to the profit side of autism and started complaining again that look they're giving sadaqa and they're also saying this Now tell us something better. Something more. So what did he say this is the problem of Allah that Allah gives

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

to people.

00:20:02 --> 00:20:32

So, wealth is a great blessing. And it's a great tool through which a person can accomplish great things. So they advise him that instead of showing off, instead of being ungrateful, why don't you use it? Do make your home of the hereafter. Why are you just spending it over here in this dunya use it to make the home of the year after as well? What would the levy Metallica law would determine

00:20:33 --> 00:20:39

when a 10 cent us labor commissioner dunia and do not forget your share in the dunya.

00:20:40 --> 00:20:50

When it comes to investing in the Hereafter, that's essential, very, very important. But don't go to such an extreme that you neglect your share in this dunya, Latin

00:20:51 --> 00:21:05

dancer from the reflectors known Sr nscn, which is to forget, and they'll sleep aka your share, meaning, what you need to use what is essential for you? What is convenient for you. So don't forget that mean adonia

00:21:06 --> 00:21:09

and this is moderation. What is moderation

00:21:11 --> 00:21:21

that a person uses as well to invest in the Hereafter, but he also uses it? Why? For what purpose? To fulfill his needs in the dunya?

00:21:23 --> 00:21:34

Because what do we think righteousness is that you have a lot of money, and you have everything in charity. Right? And you have nothing left with yourself. But what did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam advises

00:21:35 --> 00:21:52

that what is the best charity? What is the best charity that a person gives at a time that he is in need of it, and also, that he fears poverty. And he also hopes to he also wishes that he will get Richard very soon. So at that time, when a person give charity, it's the best.

00:21:53 --> 00:22:00

And charity is also best when a person gives in a way that he does not become poor after that,

00:22:01 --> 00:22:06

that he does not become needy after that he does not become dependent on others after that,

00:22:07 --> 00:22:24

which is why we're not allowed to give right in our will more than one third for non IRS that if a person gives all of his wealth to non IRS, and leaves nothing for his heirs, leaving them poor, this is something that's not acceptable,

00:22:25 --> 00:22:25

isn't it,

00:22:26 --> 00:22:49

you can only make a will up to one third, not more than that. So we see that the best way is that of moderation that a person uses as well to invest in the hero, but he also uses as well to fulfill his needs in the dunya, he does not deprive himself, he does not deprive his family, he is also fulfilling his needs.

00:22:51 --> 00:23:05

Now, many times we think that only if a person has a lot of wealth, then he can do this. No, this principle of moderation is applicable, whether a person has only 100 or he has 1 million.

00:23:07 --> 00:23:08

Remember that

00:23:09 --> 00:23:14

a person has 100 reverse and has a million, he can still apply this principle of moderation how

00:23:15 --> 00:23:28

that even if you have a little bit you must use that little bit to fulfill your needs. But you should also use that little bit to invest in your athleta

00:23:30 --> 00:23:49

what do we see that the Sahaba at the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam they didn't feel embarrassed to even bring a handful of dates, because that's all they could afford to give. What are the profits out of artisan advise the women that do not belittle even the feet of a goat that your neighbor brings to you

00:23:50 --> 00:23:53

give charity even if it is half a date.

00:23:55 --> 00:24:00

So, this principle of moderation has to be applied no matter how little or how much we have.

00:24:01 --> 00:24:05

Because without it a person cannot be successful in the dunya or the

00:24:07 --> 00:24:19

neither person has a lot even then he has to apply this principle of moderation he has to spend in the way of Allah, he has to take care of the needs of others and he also has to fulfill his needs.

00:24:20 --> 00:24:26

Which is why we see that where there is the obligation of giving the cat There is also great encouragement of giving sadaqa

00:24:27 --> 00:24:30

correct. The carrot is mandatory. But

00:24:31 --> 00:24:36

are there any rules with regards to that that only we have this much money then you can give sadaqa? No.

00:24:38 --> 00:24:59

Even if you have a little bit even if you have one date and you give half of it. That's for you. That's very good for you. So we see that giving in general, this is something that is greatly encouraged in our religion. And this is the way of moderation that Islam teaches us that a Weber deli faema Atacama who dealt with alcohol when I attend Tennessee, but

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

Come in Antonia.

00:25:02 --> 00:25:16

Many times we think that only if we have this much money, then we'll give in charity. This is what we think that when I have this much money than I will give, since I don't make money right now, this is why I cannot give no, you can give from whatever level that you have.

00:25:17 --> 00:25:26

You can share from whatever little that you have. And if a person makes up his mind, that whatever I have, I have to invest in the effort of Allah will show him the way.

00:25:27 --> 00:25:28

Allah will show him the way.

00:25:30 --> 00:25:36

There are people who perhaps don't have as much as you and I, but they give, if they can give, then why can we not give,

00:25:37 --> 00:25:39

will attend and asleep or come in adonia?

00:25:41 --> 00:26:00

Well, I sing and do good, be generous, come accent Allahu alayka, just as Allah has been generous towards you, if a person remembers this, Allah has been so kind to me. Allah has given so much to me, than why I cannot give to others. Why can I not share with others?

00:26:02 --> 00:26:13

If we gave thinking, Oh, I have only this much, I only have a little bit. If we keep looking at the quantity, then we will not be able to give to others we will not be able to do ersan and others.

00:26:14 --> 00:26:21

We should think that Allah has been generous to me that Allah has given this to me,

00:26:22 --> 00:26:30

even if it's a little, but it's fulfilling my need. It's giving me satisfied. I'm not thirsty, I'm not hungry, I'm not starving.

00:26:31 --> 00:26:36

So in whatever level that you have, you will be able to give part of it to others.

00:26:37 --> 00:26:39

That doesn't come at Arsenal level.

00:26:40 --> 00:26:43

Be generous towards others as Allah has been generous towards you.

00:26:44 --> 00:26:46

And we see this in the character of musasa

00:26:48 --> 00:27:08

that as he arrived in Medina, what did he have with him? Nothing. He had nothing. He was tired, he was exhausted. But because Allah had saved him he was worried about other people. And he went and helped others arson commit arson Allahu alayka be good. Just as Allah has been good to you.

00:27:09 --> 00:27:21

Well, Evelyn facades are filled up and do not see corruption in the land, do not create facade in the earth. Why? Because in Nova hilarya, hey, boom obsidian Indeed, Allah does not like those people who create facade.

00:27:23 --> 00:27:26

Why do they say this to him? Do not make facades in the year.

00:27:27 --> 00:27:32

Because many times when a person is only concerned about fulfilling his own desires,

00:27:33 --> 00:27:47

using his money to only satisfy his desires, then he ends up committing suicide? How? Think about it? How? How does he end up committing suicide when he's only concerned about fulfilling his own desires?

00:27:48 --> 00:27:58

When a person becomes selfish, he's only concerned about his needs, his pleasure, his satisfaction, then he ends up depriving other people out there, right?

00:28:00 --> 00:28:25

Remember that, whatever wealth that we have been given, whatever wealth that we have been given, part of that is the share of others. Part of that is a share of who of other people will feed him? How can Lisa Ellie, one more whom, and in their wealth is the right help of who Lisa ilma home.

00:28:26 --> 00:28:33

So anything that we possess, anything that we have, part of it is actually the right of others.

00:28:34 --> 00:28:44

And when we become selfish, when we're only concerned about fulfilling our own desires, then we will use it all for who for ourselves.

00:28:45 --> 00:28:58

And as a result, other people will be deprived. And this leads to facade fill up, imbalance, what is facade decay, imbalance. So this leads to an imbalance.

00:28:59 --> 00:29:06

And we also see that facetted of it is of two types. Remember, one is that the resources of the earth they're being corrupted.

00:29:07 --> 00:29:20

When a person has a lot of money, and he wants everything, his way he wants every wish of his to be fulfilled, then he ends up corrupting the physical Earth even he ends up corrupting the resources of the earth.

00:29:21 --> 00:29:38

Like, for example, just because we have money, we can go buy whatever we want to. And what happens if we don't like to eat it? We don't like to use it, toss it in the garbage. And there landfills are accumulating so much waste, which could actually benefit other people.

00:29:39 --> 00:29:53

Why do we have to buy so much food if we're not going to eat it if we're not going to consume it? Why do we have to buy coats just because we like them? And we're not going to use them? We're not going to wear them. Why can we not buy it for other people? Think about it.

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

Secondly, we see the facade filled out also includes society and a lot

00:30:00 --> 00:30:04

That there is corruption amongst the dwellers of the year

00:30:05 --> 00:30:10

when a person is only concerned about fulfilling his own desires than other people suffer.

00:30:11 --> 00:30:27

Like for example, there is a person who has a lot of money. And he's just concerned about, you know, partying and having fun and going out and buying clothes and buying jewelry, and so on and so forth. There are people who are working in his own house, who are suffering from poverty,

00:30:28 --> 00:30:28

isn't it,

00:30:29 --> 00:30:37

they're suffering from poverty, I cannot understand how a person can go shopping every other day buying so many clothes for themselves.

00:30:38 --> 00:30:44

And in their own houses are people who never end up going shopping for their own clothes.

00:30:46 --> 00:30:58

I myself have seen that you see our servant wearing the same clothes since the time they came, there are only two three outfits. And there you have so many outfits were hanging in your closet, and you're hardly going to wear them.

00:30:59 --> 00:31:02

Imagine the kind of feelings that these people would develop against you

00:31:03 --> 00:31:06

imagine, facade fell out

00:31:08 --> 00:31:12

so well that they will then facade the facade in the lower layer hibben of city

00:31:13 --> 00:31:19

and facade, when does it happen when a person does not do air sign when a person does not follow the principle that has been mentioned earlier?

00:31:20 --> 00:31:47

That will actually come at Arsenal like when a person does not do air sign on others, then what does it lead to? What does it lead to? For sad when a person hoards wealth, only to fulfill his desire, then it leads to corruption, it leads to chaos, it leads to poverty, it leads to wastage of so many resources, it leads to a lot of rankings.

00:31:48 --> 00:32:04

Like for example, many times what happens we're in the washroom, we're using water, the tap is on constantly, we're brushing our teeth, and we can't bother to just move our hand and close it up. Why I pay the bills, what's the big deal? No harm,

00:32:05 --> 00:32:06

isn't it.

00:32:07 --> 00:32:34

Similarly, we are washing clothes, we can put a lot of laundry that's a little bigger. But what happens, we put only two three coats and the whole machine is functioning electricity is being used, water is being used, soap is being used. So much is being used to wash only two or three workloads. Whereas we could wait a little bit more to collect a few more clothes, and then put them all together, conserve energy, conserve the resources.

00:32:35 --> 00:32:49

Similarly, sometimes people who live in the apartments, or they rent and their bills are not included. They don't have to pay for their bills, what happens they use electricity, they use water, they use gas, unlimited, thinking, we don't have to pay for it. So why not?

00:32:50 --> 00:32:53

This is not the proper way this leads to facade fill up.

00:32:55 --> 00:33:14

If Allah has given you blessings, if Allah has given you resources, he has not given them to you to waste. No, he has given them to you so that you can use it. And he has given them to you so that you can share them with others, spend them on others, so that you can make your IRA

00:33:15 --> 00:33:33

anything extra that you have is actually the rights of others. Remember that? What did we learn into the debacle? That he has aluna cometa you don't feel if they ask you what they should spend, tell them whatever is extra, whatever extra you have, that is the right of others.

00:33:34 --> 00:33:37

And if you don't give it to others, what does it lead to?

00:33:38 --> 00:33:42

facade? It leads to corruption. How

00:33:43 --> 00:34:19

that you have it in your house five years, 10 years, it's sitting, sitting sitting, you're not using it. Nobody else is using it. There are other people who need to use it, but it's sitting. And eventually after 510 years, what happens? outdated, it doesn't function anymore. It doesn't work anymore. And where does it end up? in the garbage? Nobody can use it. And you find it difficult to throw it because it's so valuable. Correct. So it leads to facade fill up. So anything extra that we possess, remember that it's the right of others, you don't have the right to keep it and if you keep it it's going to lead to facade.

00:34:20 --> 00:34:36

So this advice that they gave to him it's extremely beautiful. That wobbly FEMA attack Allahu Allah will attend send us leave or come in at dunya will our sin command arson Allahu alayhi wa sallam facades are filled up in the La La boom of city.

00:34:38 --> 00:34:46

And although this advice has been given to Barun, who was extremely wealthy, but as I mentioned, this can be applied to every single person

00:34:47 --> 00:34:52

because this principle of moderation we have to apply whether we have a level or we have a lot.

00:34:53 --> 00:34:54

What was the reaction of our own

00:34:55 --> 00:34:59

caller he said in numero uno, Tito, Allah in Mandarin.

00:35:01 --> 00:35:05

I was only given this because of the knowledge that I had.

00:35:06 --> 00:35:33

All of this wealth that I possess, I haven't. Why? Because of rainman or in the because of this knowledge that I possess, I don't need your advice. Keep your advice to yourself. I have all of this because if mean, I have all of this because I work for it, I deserve it. I have knowledge. I'm very clever. I am an expert. And I've made all of this wealth myself. Therefore I can do whatever I want.

00:35:34 --> 00:35:34

You understand?

00:35:36 --> 00:35:39

Because it is mine. I can do whatever I want.

00:35:40 --> 00:35:43

And unfortunately, many people think similarly.

00:35:44 --> 00:35:54

It's my property. It's my possession. My stuff, I can do whatever I want, I can throw it. I can let it rot. I can let it sit.

00:35:55 --> 00:36:02

And it's up to me if I don't want to give it in charity. I'm not going to give in charity in America due to either eliminating the

00:36:03 --> 00:36:17

Allah subhanaw taala says our me Allah, does he not know that anila Allah communicably human Al Quran that Allah destroyed before him, many generations pollun florala corn

00:36:18 --> 00:36:32

and such generations he destroyed, that were men who were ushered Domingo quwata that were stronger than him in strength. They were stronger than our own in their strength in kuwa. What strength did our own possess,

00:36:33 --> 00:36:35

of wealth of money.

00:36:36 --> 00:37:03

So they were much more wealthier than him was October German and more in accumulation. They were more numerous when it came to German, when it came to what they had amassed what they had collected. The people of the past they had much more. They had much more numbers, many more servants, much more wealth. But what happened to them? Allah subhanaw taala destroyed them because of their arrogance, because of their showing off because of their ingratitude.

00:37:04 --> 00:37:11

When I use Allah Angelou Be humble Marjorie moon and the criminals, they're not question about their deeds. Why?

00:37:12 --> 00:37:15

Allah subhanaw taala knows about them anyway. And he punishes them.

00:37:17 --> 00:37:21

Their use under under newbiggin would remove the criminals are not question about their deeds.

00:37:22 --> 00:37:31

We learn elsewhere that criminals will be questioned. So what does it mean by this? That the criminals are not questioned if they committed those crimes or not? Why?

00:37:32 --> 00:37:55

Allah subhanaw taala knows about them already. You need to ask someone about something when you're unsure, isn't it? But when Allah knows already, he doesn't need to question them. He doesn't need to bring them to court and ask them so you committed this or not? You're proven guilty, therefore, you deserve this punishment. No. They weren't questioned, they were punished immediately in the dunya.

00:37:56 --> 00:38:00

And in the Hereafter, there is no need to question them. Why?

00:38:01 --> 00:38:04

Because their sins they're recorded in their records.

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

And they will be recognized by the crimes that they have committed.

00:38:09 --> 00:38:18

We see that justice some people will be entered into gender without any hisab others will be entered into Hellfire without any herself. You understand?

00:38:19 --> 00:38:27

Some people will be admitted into gender without any questioning without any accounting. And others will be admitted into Hellfire without any accounting without any questioning

00:38:28 --> 00:38:48

intellectual Rockman I have 41 we learn euro reform odd Muna vizima, whom the criminals will be known by their marks there'll be recognized into the Mossad is 3536 we learn how they will lie on the phone. This is the day they will not speak well are you then will the home fire? nor will it be permitted for them to make an excuse.

00:38:49 --> 00:39:00

In total Roman is 39. We learn for yoma delay use alert on zombie instant village. And then on that day, none will be asked about his sin among men origin.

00:39:01 --> 00:39:21

So what do we see in this ayah that our own us extremely proud of as well? His knowledge, his skills. And many people think the same way that just because I have this, just because I'm very clever, I'm very intelligent, this is why I am successful. This is why I have this much money.

00:39:22 --> 00:39:25

And this thinking is very, very wrong.

00:39:27 --> 00:39:29

Because this thinking what does it reflect arrogance.

00:39:30 --> 00:39:34

A person should think he should realize that whatever I have is because of who

00:39:35 --> 00:39:37

Allah He gave me.

00:39:38 --> 00:39:45

Okay, I got this job because of this degree I have because of the certification I have. Who gave me the ability to acquire it.

00:39:46 --> 00:39:47


00:39:48 --> 00:39:59

who gave me the ability to find this work because there are many other people who have similar degrees, similar certifications, but they don't have the same work. They don't have the same opportunities.

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

So Allah is the one who provided you with the knowledge with the opportunities. So never think that just because of your knowledge just because of you, you are who you are, you are who you are because of Allah, because of his favorites. And this is why whatever you have been given, you have to use it in the way that Allah wants you to use it, that Allah likes you to use it. You cannot say, because I have made it myself therefore I can do whatever I want. No, this thinking is wrong.

00:40:32 --> 00:40:39

We have to realize that because Allah is the one who has given us what we have. We have to use whatever we have according to His instructions.

00:40:40 --> 00:40:47

So what happened then, for Roger, I'll call him he he. So he came out before his people who

00:40:48 --> 00:41:00

are on remember earlier, we don't follow her I lay him. This is an example of that. That for her rajala tomiki came up before the bunny is right up Zenith he in all of his adornment.

00:41:01 --> 00:41:06

He came out with all of his Xena, before the Bani Israel.

00:41:07 --> 00:41:09

Remember the different levels of Xena.

00:41:10 --> 00:41:12

Remember, what are the

00:41:13 --> 00:41:17

other naps then have the burden and an external?

00:41:18 --> 00:41:19


00:41:20 --> 00:41:42

So he came out, all dressed up all that up looking very handsome. And he didn't just come out wearing nice clothes. No, he came out with all of his wealth with all of his men, with all of his servants, as if he was displaying all of his wealth out in the streets. Just imagine

00:41:43 --> 00:41:50

what does it remind you of somebody who's displaying all their wealth out in the open. There's a procession going on.

00:41:53 --> 00:42:02

At a smaller level, weddings, what happens at weddings, what happens at weddings, that the bride she has to be wearing? What

00:42:03 --> 00:42:19

all the jewelry she owns. Even if it doesn't match, even if it's extremely heavy. Even if she's wearing three or four necklaces. She has to wear all of her bangles, Oliver rings in all 10 fingers, isn't it?

00:42:20 --> 00:42:23

And the claws, they have to reflect a lot of money.

00:42:24 --> 00:42:39

The makeup even that has to reflect that a lot of money has been invested in it. And not just that, but where she's going to be sitting all the decoration over there. What does it reflect Xena money, wealth.

00:42:40 --> 00:43:13

And not just that, but the whole decoration that is in the place where the wedding is being held. And sometimes the bride is taken. It's called a brat in Urdu. How the burrata is done like the right is taken and the groom comes and there's a whole procession. So this is exactly how qarun came out, all decked out with all of his well. All of that wealth that was a cancer that was hidden, that was locked up in store houses in treasure houses. He took all of that out and everything is being displayed in the streets.

00:43:15 --> 00:43:17

Imagine how the poor Bani Israel must be feeling.

00:43:18 --> 00:43:19

Just imagine

00:43:20 --> 00:43:22

what they would be feeling in their hearts.

00:43:23 --> 00:43:40

Similarly at weddings when people make such a display, there are amongst the attendees, those were relatives, those were friends who are not as well off. Imagine what they must be feeling
