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

And then while your karma and the orphans Alia tama is a poor enough, your team yet, me and your team, your team literally means enfilade individual to be alone. And he a team with someone who is alone, how is he alone, that your team has a child whose father has passed away.

00:00:23 --> 00:00:31

Your team has a child whose father has passed away, and the father passed away before the child reached the age of puberty.

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

Before the child reached the age of puberty, why is it called your team because he doesn't have a father figure, to protect him to take care of him to look after his needs to take him out to show him things to teach him things. He doesn't have that father figure in his life. And it happens sometimes that the Father is not there. But the uncle is there. The older brothers are there, but can they replace the Father? Can they they cannot.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:21

But remember that when the child reaches the age of puberty, or if the person is past the age of puberty, and then the father passes away, then that child is not considered a team. Okay? But that doesn't mean that you don't show any compassion to them. You don't care for them? No, you do. But your team in particular is who a young a little child.

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

So when the uttama and the orphans,

00:01:27 --> 00:01:29

so looking after them as well,

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

while Messiah keen, and the needy.

00:01:34 --> 00:01:49

Now this is the month of Ramadan again, and there are many orphans all around the world, many orphans and there are many Islamic organizations that you will find these days through whom you can actually sponsor an orphan, you can do that.

00:01:50 --> 00:02:03

So find out some way through which you can sponsor an orphan and we think there has to be a lot of money. It's not a lot of money, you haven't heard about dollar a day deals, right? All you have to spend is just $1 a day. And honestly, we spend that much money.

00:02:05 --> 00:02:11

You know, sometimes I look in the cafeteria Alhamdulillah. So many people are buying food from there, and one piece of pizza is more than $1.

00:02:12 --> 00:02:44

Right? Sometimes a drink is more than $1. So if we can afford to have that as a luxury item on a daily basis, then we can also afford to help a child who is desperate, who is in need, who needs education, who needs basic health care, who needs clothes to wear. So this is something that we have to do. And you know, sometimes orphans, their needs are taken care of, let's say they're living in an orphanage, their needs are taken care of. But what do they need? What do they really want?

00:02:45 --> 00:02:45


00:02:47 --> 00:03:00

care, love, friendship, someone to just come and talk to them. I remember when I was in Pakistan during our course. In fact, when we were studying the Quran, a friend of mine, she found an orphanage.

00:03:01 --> 00:03:36

And we decided we were gonna go there. So we took permission from them. And they said, okay, yes, you can come. And they also allowed us to bring some gifts for the kids. And we asked what the ages were. So anyway, we went and they liked the gifts. They enjoyed them. But more than anything, they liked the fact that we were there talking to them, playing with them, having fun with them. This is what they enjoyed more. I still remember their faces, how excited they were, how happy they were little children, all ages, all sizes, that they see an outsider, they see a new person.

00:03:37 --> 00:03:50

You know, think about it if you had no social life, no social life. You don't have an aunt whose house you could go to. You didn't go to the mall just for fun with your parents. You didn't just go for a walk outside. How would your life be?

00:03:52 --> 00:03:54

How would your life be it would be very difficult.

00:03:56 --> 00:04:01

These are the kinds of lives that many orphans live in orphanages.

00:04:02 --> 00:04:05

So what they need is some company some friendship.

00:04:07 --> 00:04:27

So what Athan mela Allahu OBE spends of his wealth even on the orphans, while Messiah keen and the needy ones Messiah keen is a plural of miskeen seen calf known and Riskin is a person who is needy, basically second is to become still and miskeen is a person who's not as mobile because of his poverty.

00:04:28 --> 00:04:53

If there is a child whose father may be alive, but that father is he left the child he left the family. So is that child also considered to your team? Technically not on your team? Why because the father is alive. Okay. It is the father's responsibility to take care of the child. Technically it is. All right. However, because the father figure is missing from the child's life.

00:04:55 --> 00:05:00

They still need compassion and care. They still need somebody who can come once in

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

a while and give them a gift.

00:05:02 --> 00:05:14

You know, my son is only three years old and he loves lollipops, okay? These days it says Love. Okay? So he, he really wants to have lollipops. And I keep telling him when your dad comes on, then he will give it to you.

00:05:15 --> 00:05:19

So he waits for his father to come home from work so that he can get a lollipop.

00:05:20 --> 00:05:27

And then now we've moved on to only once a week Fridays, because every day is not a good idea. So he waits for Friday so that he can get his lollipop.

00:05:29 --> 00:05:37

Now it's only a lollipop, how much does it cost? Not much. But the fact that the Father is giving a lollipop to the child, it's a different feeling.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:51

I mean, he's getting his food, he's getting his nutrition from the food that he's getting. I mean, all his basic needs are fulfilled. But there's, it's a different feeling when somebody just gives you a lollipop, and especially your father, it's a different feeling altogether.

00:05:52 --> 00:05:55

So a child from whose life the father is missing.

00:05:56 --> 00:06:14

He needs that kind of love and attention. And for that we need to spend money, sometimes it's very little, but we have to do that. Giving them gifts randomly. You don't have to wait for an occasion people think okay, when it's read, then I will give something you don't have to wait for an occasion. Do your parents always wait for an occasion to give you something? No.

00:06:16 --> 00:06:47

So likewise, we have to do the same thing. So while Misaki Myskina is the one who is poor, who is needy, and he's called miskeen, because he has become you could say immobile because of his poverty. It doesn't mean that Myskina is a person who is extremely poor. But miskeen is a person who's limited in his abilities in what he can do. Why? Because his hands are tied up, he doesn't have finances that allow him to live comfortably, to move about comfortably.

00:06:48 --> 00:07:32

So when Messiah kin in a hadith we learn that the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam, he said, a mosquito is not the one who goes around, begging from people. And who can be turned away with a morsel or two, meaning a person who begs other people, may I have something man, I have something in a person gives him you know, a little bit of bread, a little bit of food, you know, a few cents here, a few pennies here, whatever. This is not a miskeen. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said a true miskeen is he who does not find enough to suffice him, he does not have enough to fulfill his needs. A person might say, well, I need an iPhone, and I can't afford that. So do I become a Miskin? No.

00:07:33 --> 00:07:50

Myskina Zhu, who does not have enough to fulfill his needs, and there is a difference between needs and wants, and luxuries and desires. There is a difference between that but these is, honestly everything is mixed up. You don't know what is a necessity, and you don't know what is the desire.

00:07:51 --> 00:08:12

So for example, if there is a person, they have to have a phone, because of their work, let's say, and they need the job, obviously, to fulfill their needs. But if they sign a contract, for a cell phone, for instance, they have to pay a certain amount of money, isn't that so?

00:08:13 --> 00:08:21

And they have to pay a certain amount of money every single month, and they can't find any cheaper plan than that.

00:08:22 --> 00:08:31

But they can't even afford to pay all of that if they pay that and they don't have enough to eat, they don't have enough to pay their rent, you understand what I mean?

00:08:32 --> 00:08:36

So they're literally hand to mouth, literally, things are very tight for them.

00:08:38 --> 00:08:41

So miskeen, has to be recognized.

00:08:42 --> 00:08:46

You don't wait for the miskeen to come to you to ask, you know,

00:08:48 --> 00:08:57

use your common sense. Think about it, that this person doesn't have a job, they have to have a phone, where are they paying for it from? How can they

00:08:59 --> 00:09:23

or this person has a very basic job, they don't make a lot of money, and they're paying the rent as well. So how can they buy clothes? How can they buy winter boots? How can they afford this or that? So use your mind think about it. Be proactive, take the initiative, it doesn't mean you go asking other people. So do you need something you think I can help you with something? No, you don't embarrass people like that. But you

00:09:24 --> 00:09:49

use your common sense. And you think about it, what do you think they could need? And these days are hamdulillah there's so many ways through which you can actually help a person in a nice way without even letting them feel bad about it. A simple thing that you can do is buy them a gift card. Honestly. Buy them a gas card, $50 gas card, whatever that you can afford. If you know that somebody's died on their budget and their finances, you can do these little things.

00:09:50 --> 00:10:00

And you have to think about it from before you have to manage your finances a little and you can actually help other people in this way. You know sometimes money

00:10:00 --> 00:10:09

his little children are going around house to house selling chocolates to make money to raise money for whatever in their school. They're doing that right for a good cause.

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

So, we can also do such things to help other people.

00:10:15 --> 00:10:30

So when Messiah keen and the needy wasn't as severe and the traveler, but if you look at the word even son a Seville the way son of the way, Seville is bath road seen by Allah and even mean son.

00:10:31 --> 00:10:33

In the Arabic language.

00:10:34 --> 00:10:42

If a person does something a lot or if a person is identified with something, okay, if a person is identified with something,

00:10:43 --> 00:10:52

then they are called abou off, whatever, or even off whatever a will meaning father and even meaning son.

00:10:53 --> 00:10:54

So for example,

00:10:55 --> 00:11:04

a whoohoo daerah radula. Who, you know what, hooray, that means? His cat who Leila little cat? Kitten?

00:11:06 --> 00:11:09

So, a boy who did a father of kittens. I mean,

00:11:10 --> 00:11:21

it's kind of strange. So why was he called a boyhood IRA? Because he would carry kittens in his sleeves. Like he would have them. He liked kittens. Okay.

00:11:22 --> 00:11:25

So this is why he was called Abu Hurayrah.

00:11:26 --> 00:11:27

All right.

00:11:29 --> 00:11:36

Likewise, even a severe son of the way meaning a person who is on the way a person who is travelling.

00:11:38 --> 00:11:44

A person who is traveling is on the road, he's on the go. So he becomes even a Seville.

00:11:45 --> 00:12:16

And we know that today, even people are given names, family names, according to the work that they have, according to the profession they have according to the kind of business that they have. It's very common. So people are given such names related to what they do what their profession is. All right. So we're going to Seville and the travelers, the spending on the traveler as well. But what if the traveler is well off? I mean, they have a lot of money.

00:12:17 --> 00:12:22

They have a lot of money. And still you're supposed to spend on them. Yes.

00:12:23 --> 00:12:27

Because a traveler could be a millionaire in his home.

00:12:29 --> 00:12:53

But when he is traveling, and if he's thirsty, or if he just wants a bed to lie down on, or he just wants to be at home, he sick and tired of being at hotels, you know, he wants to get away from that sterile feeling, you know, of clean, clean hotel rooms. He just wants to be in house and home. He wants to wake up to warm breakfast.

00:12:54 --> 00:13:06

You know, so who is he a traveler, right? So if you're spending on them while they're in your house, this is what part of bid Barta righteousness. This is true righteousness.

00:13:08 --> 00:13:35

I remember recently, my husband friend, he was in town for some work. And he was at a hotel at a very good hotel. He was staying over there. And he was begging us, can I please come over to your house? And I'm like, I can't, I'll have to wear my hijab. And it'll be so inconvenient. And I have kids as well, how am I going to do it? But we had him over because he wanted to come over. He just wanted to have whole food, basic food, and he just wanted to be had that home feeling. So that's all he wanted.

00:13:36 --> 00:13:40

So this is all that sometimes a traveler needs.

00:13:41 --> 00:13:49

Likewise, there could be a traveler who's very well off, but he lost his money. Okay, he missed a flight.

00:13:50 --> 00:14:02

And he does have money but immediately such accommodations cannot be made. I mean, you could say, well, he should rent a car. And then he can go about and do whatever he wants to. But you give him a ride because he's traveling.

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

You take him from place to place because he's traveling. You're spending all your money

00:14:10 --> 00:14:23

in order to host him. Then Edna Seville is also a guest someone who's living at your house. And if necessary, if you're traveling with other people, you are traveling or other people are also travelers right.

00:14:24 --> 00:14:31

So spending on other people who are traveling with you while going to Seville spending on the traveler

00:14:33 --> 00:14:37

WhatsApp Ileen and those who ask Linus Florida have sir ill

00:14:38 --> 00:14:51

who sat ill one who does who are seen Hamdallah question meaning settling the beggars those who ask me in those who ask others for their needs to be fulfilled.

00:14:52 --> 00:14:56

Some people don't ask the miskeen we learned earlier he doesn't ask others.

00:14:57 --> 00:14:59

But sad ill he goes and ask

00:15:01 --> 00:15:34

Sometimes it happens that if a person asks you for something, you gotta finish it like, I'm not gonna give them. Why are they asking? I'm only going to give to those people who don't ask for decent about it. And if somebody's asking me, I'm not going to help them, I'm not going to give them, I'm not going to support them. But what do we learn? That bed is not just one type of good deed helping only those people whom you want to help them you feel like helping, you know, helping anyone who is in need, whether his need is making him ask of you or not ask of you.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:55

So we'll say lean also spend on them. And remember that a person can ask in two ways, first of all, through the sand, McCall, through his words, verbally, that literally, you're sitting in your car, a person comes knocks at your window, and says, May I please have some change for lunch? They're asking you to listen, McCall.

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

Okay. And so you spend on them, you give them something.

00:16:01 --> 00:16:11

The other is that a person asks you through listen halfway through the state that they're in, meaning their state shows that they need something.

00:16:12 --> 00:16:15

Their stage shows that they need something.

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


00:16:18 --> 00:16:46

So for example, if you see, let's say at Iftar time, you're in a masjid. Okay? It wasn't Iftar day, but you just happen to be there at motive time, you ate your dates, you had your water and you're done. You are on your way out. But you see that there's a person who's sitting alone, all by themselves, and they're still sitting over there. You're gonna wonder why are they here? Did they come for Iftar? Perhaps and they found that there was no thought? Maybe they're hungry. They need to eat.

00:16:47 --> 00:17:20

So they didn't ask you. Is there any food? Is there any cafeteria here? Is there any kitchen here? Are there any if dollar arrangements they didn't ask for anything, they're sitting there quietly looking, you can tell by their eyes, they need something. So respond to them. Ask them in the way that you can. Likewise, sometimes it happens that you go to a place you're familiar with it, for example, this Masjid this institute, and you see another person who is walking in for the first time you're seeing them for the first time. And they're looking okay, where could the masjid be? And you can tell that they're looking for something.

00:17:22 --> 00:17:33

So don't ignore, don't ignore their looks. Go and ask them. May I help you with something Sr? Is there anybody you're looking for? Gonna get you something.

00:17:34 --> 00:17:41

So go and respond to the needs of people when you see that they are in need was saline. And those who ask.

00:17:42 --> 00:18:01

So if you are sitting in your car, and there is a person who comes knocks at your window, and they're asking you for money, and you can tell by the clothes that they're wearing, or by, you know, the way that they're that they're carrying themselves that perhaps there's something fishy perhaps they're, you know, do drugs or something like that.

00:18:02 --> 00:18:04

So what do you do in that situation?

00:18:05 --> 00:18:15

First of all, remember that such a person you cannot yell at you cannot scold them, you cannot be harsh with them, you cannot be rude with them.

00:18:16 --> 00:18:29

So you can't say anything offensive to them. That go get yourself a job. You know, why are you asking me then to get money from Sorrento before? I know you're not taking this money for lunch? I know you want it for your drugs? No, don't do that.

00:18:30 --> 00:19:03

Because Allah subhanaw taala says what a messiah Illa for Latin have asked for the petitioner, the one who's asking you don't scold him, don't be harsh with him, because there has to be something that got them to that situation. Right? Recently, I found out about a person who is an engineer by profession, and very well established, lived in this country they studied, they had their master's degree everything. And now they're asking your family friends, may I please have some money? I've been living in shelters.

00:19:04 --> 00:19:17

And he's saying I lost my job. My, no, my wife did something and God knows what so he's divorced wife and children are where he doesn't know where they are. I don't have a job anymore. I'm literally living in a shelter.

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

And everybody was like, Okay, what do we do? Why is he in the shelter? What happened? I mean, someone with a master's degree is living in a shelter on the streets. There something is not right. Something is not adding up. How could this happen?

00:19:36 --> 00:20:00

So they tried figuring out what was happening and what they're thinking the family thought that perhaps is a drug issue now. But if he's asking for money, I need food. I need clothes. I need this. I need that. What do you do? You yell at him. You said Don't call us fix your life yourself. If you yell at them, you know what's gonna happen? They're not going to ask you again. Or they're going

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

ask you again with another story with another made up story. Or perhaps they're going to end up stealing. Because one bad deed leads to another right one crime leads to another.

00:20:11 --> 00:20:26

Or it could lead them to committing suicide literally killing themselves. In the Hadith, we learned that also a haka. volumen, almost nomen help your brother, whether he is the unjust, or the one to whom injustice is being done. So even when they're doing something wrong, you are supposed to help them.

00:20:27 --> 00:20:46

So as a friend, as a relative, whoever you are to them, do whatever you can, but doesn't mean that you give them money so that they can buy their drugs, but you talk to them, you befriend them, you ask them what's happening in your life, you take them in confidence that they're able to tell you, they're able to seek help, and you can guide them them.

00:20:47 --> 00:20:50

But if you start yelling at them, they're not going to come back to you again.

00:20:52 --> 00:20:59

But this random person on the street, again, give them the benefit of the doubt something must have happened that brought them into this situation.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:08

So if you're not comfortable giving money, always have food with yourself that you can give to such people, when you're passing by such places.

00:21:09 --> 00:21:24

It could be a can of fog, it could be a water bottle that is sealed, it could be a packet of chips, it could be a chocolate bar, whatever that you can keep in your car, keep it always, especially if you drive by such places regularly, so that when people come, you can actually give them something.

00:21:32 --> 00:21:35

For example, if they want, if they're saying that they need the money for clothes.

00:21:38 --> 00:21:39

Instead of giving them money,

00:21:40 --> 00:22:05

if they're asking you, you know, I need food, I need this. I need that. So you tell them, Okay, come with me. Let me buy it for you. I remember once I went to a restaurant and there was a person begging outside, they said, Please may have some money so I can get some food. And we said, okay, come along with us, and we'll buy you food. And he said, No, no, I just want the money. So then the truth came out. So we said, No, we can get you food if you want. But not that it was quite obvious then.

00:22:06 --> 00:22:20

So you don't be harsh with them. You help them in the way that you can. And the thing is that at the end of the day, if you give sadaqa to a person, whatever they do with it, you're not responsible for it.

00:22:21 --> 00:22:41

You're not responsible for it. In rds, we learned in fact, there was a man who once said, I'm going to give secret charity, meaning I'm not going to tell anybody about it, I'm going to give it in private. So he went down in the night, and he gave her the car to the man that he saw. The next day, people were talking about it, that you know what, last night somebody gives charity to a thief.

00:22:43 --> 00:23:00

That man's wondering, oh my god, I give charity to a thief. Okay, so he went out the next night. He said my father could not accept it. So he went and he started looking for people. So he found a woman and he gave sadaqa to her. The next day, people were like, You know what? Somebody give charity to a prostitute.

00:23:02 --> 00:23:14

And he's like law in the law, what do I do? And then next time again, he went to give charity to somebody. And he found a man he gave money to him. And next day, people were saying somebody give charity to a rich person

00:23:15 --> 00:23:16

says like what's happening?

00:23:18 --> 00:23:36

So he went and asked somebody and he was told that you never know your sadaqa to that thief may have prevented him from stealing your sadaqa to that prostitute may have prevented her from doing something wrong. Your sadhaka to the rich man may have encouraged him to spend as well.

00:23:37 --> 00:23:47

So remember, when you spend on somebody, whatever they do with it, it's their business. You get reward for your charity for what you give.

00:23:48 --> 00:23:49

So let's say Ilene.

00:23:53 --> 00:23:54

story can

00:23:56 --> 00:24:28

finally come. I just wanted to share an idea that some of my friends have started this year actually, we realized that a lot of us are home during the days for this Ramadan, and maybe you're in the same situation. So you can do the same thing. It's summertime, right? Yeah, because it's summer, so you're off school, you're off. Some people have vacation for Ramadan, etc. So etc. Anyway, so we're home during the day. So we decided that we're going to spend some time during the day making sandwiches or making some kind of food that we can package so there's like sandwiches and then we'll put some fruit in the juice box, like a full meal, basically, and we'll package

00:24:28 --> 00:24:48

everything and then we got our husbands to go in the evening and drive around downtown and just any homeless person they see just hand out one bag per person. And so that's what we're gonna do for the whole month of Ramadan Inshallah, and if you if you're free during the day, maybe that's something that you can try or if you want to do that outside of Ramadan, too. That's great. So that's just one idea. Yes.

00:24:49 --> 00:24:59

So we can come up with these ideas. You know, many times we have these clothes, they're just floating around our house and one back to the other one room to the other basement and you know, so on and so forth. We don't know what to do with

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

This kind of stuff, gather that together, call up your family, your friends, if you have any things that are in good condition and take them to such places and leave them for free people will come and take them, whatever they don't take you give it away somewhere else. And you can literally go buy some fruit, apples, if you think that they might not be comfortable with taking our sandwiches, get apples, get oranges, get peaches, get grapes, get cherries, whatever you can, and just give that as food.

00:25:28 --> 00:25:32

So what's that Ilene spend on those who ask

00:25:33 --> 00:25:42

what you recall, and also in the record record is the plural of recover and recover from the root letters drop off.

00:25:43 --> 00:25:45

Recover is neck

00:25:46 --> 00:25:48

and record next.

00:25:49 --> 00:26:14

Record next, failure, Cobb, physical means in the cows are freeing the next meaning in the cause of freeing human lives, people who are trapped people who are enslaved, and they need to pay, they need to give something in order to buy their freedom. So spending on them so that they can buy their freedom.

00:26:15 --> 00:26:39

We know that before there was slavery, and in Islam, there were different ways that were adopted. Such as, for example, if a person had to give Kafala, he did something wrong, he had to pay some fine. One of the options was by a slave and free him free a human life. Right? Likewise, we see that slaves could also buy their freedom.

00:26:40 --> 00:26:51

For example, a slave could make an agreement with the Master, I want to buy my freedom, tell me what I can do. So the master says, Okay, you have to work for me for this many years. And you have to make this much money for me. And then you are free.

00:26:52 --> 00:27:09

Like, for example, to manufacture see you about his story. Right, he also bought his freedom. So if there is a person who is the process of buying his freedom, help him financially with a record. Now these days, you don't find such sleep. So what do you do,

00:27:10 --> 00:27:22

there could be a person whose life is literally you can say enslaved, because of whatever reason, and they need money to free themselves. It could be debt. It could be that

00:27:23 --> 00:27:43

it could be, for example, there is a prisoner here, they have to pay some money, let's say as Bill in order to be free for some time until their cases, continued whatever it is, so you're basically striving to free a human life. Okay. So even that is of the same value will recall

00:27:44 --> 00:28:26

what I call a solid and he established the salah, because sometimes it happens people think all righteousness is just in helping other people helping mankind helping the poor and needy, doing social welfare work, very important, very necessary, but it doesn't mean that you begin to neglect your prayers, because you can't be a truly righteous person until you give the right of people and you also give the right of Allah the One who created you so almost Salah and he established the prayer what at the Zika and he gave this a care Salah and Zika both are important well move funa beer it him either a hurdle move food is the plural of move Finn from the letters welfare Yeah.

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

Wafaa. To complete to fulfill something movie is one who completes one who fulfills.

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

So move throne, those who fulfill what do they fulfill, beyond the hem their their covenant, their commitments, their promises?

00:28:45 --> 00:28:55

Either our hadoo whenever they make a covenant or in huddle, whenever they make a covenant whenever they make a promise, what do they do? They fulfill it.

00:28:56 --> 00:29:10

Because piety is not just about rituals. Righteousness is not just about rituals. Righteousness is not just about being charitable. But righteousness also means that a person is honest,

00:29:12 --> 00:29:16

that others are not hurt because of him. Others do not suffer because of him.

00:29:18 --> 00:29:23

And how is that done? That if a person has made a commitment, then he fulfills it.

00:29:24 --> 00:29:47

You know, when a person makes an appointment, and he doesn't show up for it? Do people suffer? Do people suffer? Yes. Another person could have made an appointment at that time. Right? Then the doctor's time was wasted. The person working at the front desk their time was wasted so people suffer because of us when we don't fulfill our promises.

00:29:49 --> 00:30:00

And something very small. If there is a particular date by which we have to, let's say submit our assignment. It's a promise right? That we're taking the score

00:30:00 --> 00:30:08

course. And we will do whatever we're told. So if there's a particular date by which we have to submit the assignment, if we don't do it, what's going to happen? What's going to happen?

00:30:10 --> 00:30:22

Do you know about the consequences? What are the consequences, the group in charge is going to be wondering, Where's the assignment, where's the student, and they're going to be calling you and they're going to be asking you and you will be avoiding them.

00:30:24 --> 00:30:35

So imagine how much time the charge is going to spend after us that you can submit the assignment, you can get your work done, and that time could have been spent in helping you do something else.

00:30:36 --> 00:30:44

So we'll move on a bit to him either I do and the the covenants, the promises that we make are of two types, one with Allah and one with the people.

00:30:45 --> 00:30:52

So with Allah, whether it is the last or any of the promises that we make with Allah subhanaw taala

00:30:53 --> 00:30:57

you know, sometimes people make a promise Oh Allah, you give me this and I will spend this much money in your way

00:30:58 --> 00:31:08

you give me this and I will pray these many records. And or you give me this and I will recite the Quran these many times. And what as soon as we have it, we forget about the promise that we made.

00:31:09 --> 00:31:22

So we'll move on and we are the him either or her do and what the people this is in general, no matter who that person is, whether Muslim or non Muslim, because we think that if we have made a promise of the Muslim we have to fulfill it non Muslim, don't worry about it, have to worry about it.

00:31:23 --> 00:31:34

Because in the cannabis hula, indeed, the the Covenant, the promise that you're making, you'll be asked about it, you'll be questioned about it. So we'll move on to him either a hurdle.

00:31:35 --> 00:32:05

And people This includes organizations, this includes your workplace, this includes a business, this includes anything, anyone with whom you make a covenant. So for example, you're downloading the software, and it says, I agree, you have to put a checkmark on it, you have to click it. I agree and I accept all the terms and conditions. And then after that, you make a copy of it and you give it to your friend for free. That's not right. That's breaking the covenant.

00:32:06 --> 00:32:10

Right. So we'll move forward Have you ever had him either are huddled

00:32:11 --> 00:32:20

in a hadith we learned that LA Imana lemon law amanatullah Who when Adina lemon law the law who the one who does not fulfill his promises he doesn't have any Deen

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

meaning his Deen his claims of being religious are all faults.

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

Well, Savina Filbert sir evil Barak, and those who are patient in times of poverty and hardship.

00:32:35 --> 00:32:41

Slavery in Florida have slavit Sabra patients Sadara what the summer mean?

00:32:42 --> 00:32:46

What the sub are mean to control yourself

00:32:47 --> 00:32:55

when you want to yell when you want to say something nasty when you want to say something to make the other person be quiet.

00:32:56 --> 00:33:13

Sub control yourself hold yourself back. And sometimes literally it is as though a volcano is erupting inside of you. You know flames of fire burning inside of you. And you want to say something you want to do something but what the southern mean

00:33:14 --> 00:33:29

what the southern mean that you control it? You resist the temptation will solve it either Philbert set you up brah. What do we think by it is that if I pray my salah perfectly by God, if I have my hands up here and not down there.

00:33:31 --> 00:33:39

If I have memorized the Quran, I'm very righteous. But that's not all that righteousness is about righteousness Allah means that your patient at times of hardship

00:33:40 --> 00:33:50

when you want to react negatively, Philbert sad but sad from the letters bear Hamza seen and but Sir is used for extreme poverty should that will fuck

00:33:51 --> 00:33:52

extreme poverty.

00:33:53 --> 00:33:55

Hunger dependence.

00:33:57 --> 00:34:15

So for example these days as the time comes close to if Ah, so that's seven o'clock in the evening when you've been fasting for several hours. You tend to be irritable. Somebody tells you Can you lay the table? Why should I do it? I did the dishes and you're asking me to leave the table do.

00:34:16 --> 00:34:20

I'm fasting? I'm hungry. I'm tired.

00:34:22 --> 00:34:26

We'll solve Idina filberts extreme hunger.

00:34:27 --> 00:34:30

Don't start yelling. Don't start arguing.

00:34:31 --> 00:34:54

Don't start telling people I am fasting I'm fasting so don't tell me anything to do. No well Sabrina Filbert set and but set is also used for physical hurt physical ailment. And it happens that when a person is hungry, then he also begins to suffer physical pain.

00:34:56 --> 00:34:59

So for example, you're hungry and your stomach within your head starts to hurt.

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

And then all your pains you know, they become so fresh. You can feel everything.

00:35:07 --> 00:35:09

You become oversensitive.

00:35:11 --> 00:35:25

So at these times was Sabrina Filbert surgery? And also what the raw the raw from the route actress blog, Laura and Laura is muddled it is illness, sickness.

00:35:26 --> 00:35:50

And the law is also loss, mental torture, mental affliction, psychological torture, and when a person is suffering hurt mentally psychologically, what's the difference between bursa and Baba? But sir, is physical hunger or poverty, or physical pain? And the raw is emotional, mental?

00:35:51 --> 00:35:58

Okay, because within us, okay, you're sick. But along with sickness, you're also very down,

00:35:59 --> 00:36:03

isn't it? So you tend to become very down when you're sick?

00:36:04 --> 00:36:16

So being patient at that time as well? What does it mean by being patient at this time? When a person is mentally disturbed, psychologically disturbed? What does it mean? How can you be patient at that time,

00:36:17 --> 00:36:24

that don't say anything that Allah would dislike, don't say anything that you will regret afterwards.

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

And also, when a person becomes sick, then he begins to leave everything that he would do normally.

00:36:31 --> 00:37:15

So for example, I have a headache. I can't, you know, pray, I can't get up and do too. So I'm just going to sleep. Whereas you can actually do it. Many times that happens, and we have a headache. If we have an exam at school, we go, because we've paid so much money for it. If all our friends are going to the mall, we are going to go with them. Because we don't want to miss out on all the fun, even though our foot is hurting, our back is hurting, we will still go because we love to do that. But it happens that when there's something good that we have to do, then our illness, our sickness becomes a license to do nothing to have fun to the sleep the whole day. So Sabrina Filbert set you

00:37:15 --> 00:37:31

up below where he nailed books, and at the time of war at the time of battle. But spa Hamza scene, this is different from Bessette. Okay, this is bats, bats is used for calamity for extreme hardship.

00:37:32 --> 00:37:48

And it's also used for war. It's also used for battle. And if you think about it, at the time of battle, there is a combination of physical as well as mental pain, isn't it? You're physically hurt, but psychologically, emotionally, people get very disturbed as well.

00:37:49 --> 00:38:01

So at that time being patient, meaning that when a person is in war in battles, and he doesn't give up rather He remains steadfast, he remains firm. And he doesn't run away.

00:38:02 --> 00:38:09

Imagine the time of the prophets of Allah symbols or how about they're standing there going for battle? The battle of word.

00:38:10 --> 00:38:16

Okay, there was approximately 1000 Muslims going and what happened?

00:38:17 --> 00:38:37

What happened then? Some of them, they said, we can't go, I believe and obey with him several people. They said, No, we're not going with you. And they went back to Medina, was that summer inbox? It wasn't Subash it was impatience because they gave up. And they began spreading that weakness amongst others.

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

So Sabrina, filbert, sir, what the raw were handled bats.

00:38:44 --> 00:39:01

And you see Heenan bats at the time of battle. This signifies that extremely hard situations, being patient at that time as well. extremely hard situations. Can you even think of being in a battle?

00:39:02 --> 00:39:14

Can you even think of being in a place like that? You know, when you read about the stories of the companions, and how they went for battle for war, one after the other? You can't even imagine being in a place like that.

00:39:15 --> 00:39:25

If somebody yells at us, we feel so scared. We don't want to look at them. Imagine somebody is coming to you with a sword, like, Ah, I'm running away from here.

00:39:27 --> 00:39:57

So what does it signify extremely hard situations, even at that time, being patient situations where you feel I cannot bear this anymore. I cannot tolerate this anymore. Where do I run to? Where do I escape? You feel as if you've hit the limit, you can't stay firm anymore, even at that time being patient. You know, sometimes that happens to the person that he's very patient. And then eventually, as things get more tough, he says, I can't do this anymore. I cannot handle this anymore. What does this ayah teach us?

00:39:58 --> 00:39:59

That in all

00:40:00 --> 00:40:12

situations whether you think that you can tolerate them, or you think that you can not tolerate them in both situations being patient is necessary. Well sarb Idina Filbert set, you will belong you were handled vets.

00:40:13 --> 00:40:20

And in the Quran, we learned that you can live Allahu nevsun. Illa was Allah, Allah does not overburden a soul more than what it can bear.

00:40:22 --> 00:40:30

So if you're going through any situation, remember that you can tolerate it, you can bear it, you are stronger than what you think.

00:40:31 --> 00:40:44

And you will see this, that there's some things that you think are so difficult or impossible, you can never do it. And then you end up doing it yourself as well. Like, yeah, it's not that bad. It's possible.

00:40:45 --> 00:41:04

I remember a friend of mine, she was expecting, and I saw her I'm like, Oh, my God, I'm never having kids. And I saw her as she was, you know, going to the hospital, and I was like, Oh my god. This is the most terrifying experience any girl could ever have. I'm not having kids. I remember I was so terrified.

00:41:06 --> 00:41:12

And then later, if somebody asks me now, I'm like, yeah, it's manageable. It's not that bad, you can survive.

00:41:13 --> 00:41:26

So we have this fear in our minds that oh my god, this is impossible. You cannot do it. How could you ever be patient in such a situation? But the thing is, you can be

00:41:27 --> 00:41:36

and this is the reason why Allah would put you in that situation. If you were not capable of being patient in that situation. Allah would not put you in that situation.

00:41:37 --> 00:42:08

So you can be patient. Well, Sabrina, Filbert set you up Baba, were Hainan births. Such people. Allah says Hola, Iike La Nina Sadako. Those are the ones who are truthful. Sadako said Fidel cough. What is the truthfulness? So they're truthful and what they are truthful in their claim of faith in their claim of Eman in their being bias in their being truly righteous.

00:42:09 --> 00:42:34

When a person performs different types of good deeds, when a person is patient at times of hardship, when a person cares about others, and he spends on them, and he doesn't spend on whom he likes, but he spends on anyone who is in need, whether he wants to give or he does not want to give, he prays, he gives him charity, and he also has a man, that is true piety.

00:42:35 --> 00:42:55

And if a person has limited himself to certain things, and he thinks that is all that religion is about then is that truthfulness in the know. Hula, ikan Medina, Sudoku. Those are the ones who are truthful, what will Iike who will move the cone and those are the ones who truly fear Allah. They're the ones who have Taqwa.

00:42:56 --> 00:43:03

They are the ones who have Taqwa who those who have these characteristics those who do these things.

00:43:04 --> 00:43:06

Let's listen to the recitation of this verse

00:43:07 --> 00:43:08

lace shall be

00:43:11 --> 00:43:14

the majority will normally be

00:43:16 --> 00:43:17

a woman

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


00:43:22 --> 00:43:23


00:43:30 --> 00:43:32

being one maybe

00:43:35 --> 00:43:36

being one

00:43:38 --> 00:43:39

be that will

00:43:44 --> 00:43:45

be was

00:43:46 --> 00:43:50

in our report you are upon us.

00:44:02 --> 00:44:04


00:44:17 --> 00:44:24

if you look at it in this verse, four types or four types of bit, four aspects of it are mentioned.

00:44:25 --> 00:44:26

First of all,

00:44:27 --> 00:44:31

our core beliefs so what falls into that?

00:44:33 --> 00:44:48

If you look at the verse what falls into that in beliefs, man Amna. Billahi while yo mill Afeni while Mala Ekati while Kitabi when they begin, okay.

00:44:49 --> 00:44:52

After I played arriba that

00:44:53 --> 00:44:54

acts of worship,

00:44:55 --> 00:44:59

worship rituals. They're also mentioned in this verse, which ones are they

00:45:00 --> 00:45:02

Welcome salata,

00:45:03 --> 00:45:04

whatever it is,

00:45:05 --> 00:45:16

then more omelette dealings with other people. What falls into that? What I tell my Allah, Allah who be the will CORBA

00:45:17 --> 00:45:27

silica Rahim right, Walia terma while Messiah keen, then webinars Seville Wasa, Ilene will fill record

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

and then

00:45:29 --> 00:45:35

o'clock A yet manners and etiquette and what falls into that

00:45:36 --> 00:45:43

while morphine and beer at the either I huddle with Sabrina Filbert sir II what Bahai Hayden verse.

00:45:45 --> 00:45:52

So if you think about it, the religion of Islam is not just about having faith in your heart.

00:45:53 --> 00:46:11

Nor is it just about performing certain rituals. Nor is it just about being a good person. No, this religion is a very vast religion. It guides you in every aspect of your life.

00:46:12 --> 00:46:21

And if we want to be those who are truly righteous, who are pious, who are good people, then we have to look at all these four things.

00:46:22 --> 00:46:24

What do I do? How much do I do?

00:46:26 --> 00:46:30

Do I ignore something? Or do I do it?

00:46:32 --> 00:46:33

So these four categories,

00:46:34 --> 00:46:50

put them up somewhere in front of you so that you can see them? And you can remind yourself okay, when it comes to Salah, I do it when it comes to the cat, okay, I don't have to do it, so I'm not obligated to do it. Okay, but when it comes to being patient,

00:46:51 --> 00:47:01

when it comes to giving, when it comes to responding to other people, when it comes to fulfilling my covenants, then where do I fall? How much do I do?

00:47:02 --> 00:47:10

Because otherwise, we won't be are those people welcome Allah says Allah ecol, Latina, Sadako, Allah Iike human with the Quran,

00:47:11 --> 00:47:19

then it's just claims that it's just words, and words don't matter anything, if they're not supported by actions.

00:47:20 --> 00:47:25

And if you think about it, doing all of these actions, what is that bit

00:47:26 --> 00:47:37

righteousness, and when a person has behaved when a person does it, that is when he is truthful, so will I can livina Sadako. And when a person is truthful, in his claim,

00:47:38 --> 00:47:43

Allah Subhana Allah says about such people who like a human with the cone, so this is the code.

00:47:44 --> 00:47:47

So see, all these things are tied with each other.

00:47:49 --> 00:48:18

Nothing can be separated, nothing can be ignored. And if you look at the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is what we see. He wasn't just a good leader. He wasn't just a good muscley meaning someone who prayed for Allah very properly. But he was also a very good friend, a very good companion. He also gave charity he was also very helpful to other people. So we need to incorporate all of these things into our lives as well. If we want to be successful.

00:48:19 --> 00:48:37

When we're learning the deen, when we're studying the religion, sometimes we get very lost into technical matters, technical things. They are important but don't forget the action, learn but also implement because if we don't, then that knowledge is useless.

00:48:38 --> 00:48:47

So may Allah give us a low fee to implement all of these things to incorporate all of these things into our lives so that we can truly be of those who are with the cone

00:48:48 --> 00:48:56

Subhan Allah who will become the Kenisha de la ilaha. Illa? Anta Mr. Furukawa to relate a Salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. You
