After reminding us of Allah's Pantheon as attributes, His actions, his power over the creation, Allah subhanaw taala says me know, all of you believe, believe in who Billa he was solely believe in Allah and His messenger. Amino is a command this command has been given to who

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

do to all people. But remember, this is a Madani Surah So the command is specifically for the Muslims don't already believe.

00:00:37 --> 00:01:00

Thank you do but Allah subhanaw taala says, still me know Believe, believe in Allah, in Allah, that He is your Lord whom you should worship and strive towards. Believe what was truly He in His Messenger also, that he is your leader and your guide, the example that you must follow,

00:01:01 --> 00:01:12

believe in Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you see? If you are doing something, if you're working,

00:01:13 --> 00:01:15

and somebody says somebody comes up to you and says,

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

can you get your work done already?

00:01:19 --> 00:01:20

What does that mean?

00:01:21 --> 00:01:28

You're already working and they're telling you to do your work. What does it mean you're not doing your work properly?

00:01:29 --> 00:01:36

You need to look at what you're doing, examine it, think about it, and do it properly. Fix it.

00:01:37 --> 00:01:57

So, amino Billahi we're also li This is similar to how Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran in surah Nisa, I 136. That Yeah, are you a Latina ama No. And amino Billahi. We're also lucky, all you who have believed believe in Allah and His messenger.

00:01:58 --> 00:02:49

Because as we discussed earlier, at the beginning, that how, when a person has Eman, that Eman is not going to stay stagnant. It's going to wear out, it's going to become old. So what is necessary that it should be revived? It should be strengthened. It should be pumped up. You know, you get that Eman high and you get really good. And then there's a decline there's a dip, what is necessary that you do something to go high again. Right? But what happens with us is that if we ever do have a dip, we think that's it. I'm never gonna get this right. I'm a failure. Whereas this is something very natural. That when you're doing something good, there will come a point where you will fall you will

00:02:49 --> 00:03:21

go down, you will decrease. So when you go down, what does it mean? Go up again. Increase again. So me know Billa he wants to sue Lee. And what this teaches us is that there is always a need to revive once a man there is always room for improvement. You understand? There's always room for improvement. We can never reach a level where we can take out now I've got this in control. I've got southern

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

you can ever say that. Never

00:03:26 --> 00:03:43

because there's always room for improvement. Just the other day somebody was sharing with me about how their Quran teacher who is mashallah known for the famous Ejaz out that they haven't they give each other also. They still recite Quran to their teachers, and they get corrected.

00:03:45 --> 00:03:46

They get corrected. Why?

00:03:47 --> 00:04:31

If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told, Well, Cole are busy near Alma, say, Oh my Lord, Increase me in knowledge. What does it mean you can never learn enough? There's always more to learn. And the same thing is with iman, you can never have enough Eman. There's always more that you can have. There's always room for improvement. So me no biller who are solely no there is something that the Sahaba were so concerned about more or even juggled all the low iron who he said, Let us sit for some time and believe. Come let's sit down. And let's believe well then they already believe this is what the Sahaba would talk about. Come let's sit down and believe you know, like we say

00:04:31 --> 00:04:40

let's go out and chill. That's it. Let's sit down and believe. Meaning let us sit down and do something, discuss something that will increase our iman.

00:04:42 --> 00:04:59

So believe and then what unfuckable and also spend, spend, of course in whose way in Allah's way. That's understood, spend, why spend to show your faith. Do increase your faith because remember that

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

Amen. How does it increase

00:05:03 --> 00:05:12

with actions? Eman increases how? With actions. So for example, one action is Salah

00:05:13 --> 00:05:20

when a person will praise Allah and focus on the quality of the Salah, then that Salah will increase their Iman

00:05:22 --> 00:05:30

another action is vicar of Allah when a person will spend some time doing wicked that vicar will in sha Allah increase them in Eman.

00:05:31 --> 00:06:09

Another action another way of increasing Eman is through sadaqa spending in the way of Allah charity. Because that is also righteous action. Because remember Eman years easy to be thorough. It increases with acts of obedience so unfit go spend Magi Allah calm mustafina fee, spend out of that which He has made you meaning Allah has made you mustafina fi successors in Mr. Fluffy floral of Mr. Cliff and Mr. Cliff is someone who has been given an inheritance

00:06:10 --> 00:06:20

from it's the whoever he has the flu, to come after somebody. But whoever comes after somebody, what does it mean that there's somebody else who is going to come after them?

00:06:21 --> 00:06:34

All right. So Mr. Club is someone who has been made to inherit something that belongs to somebody else yesterday, today, it belongs to him, and tomorrow it will belong to somebody else.

00:06:36 --> 00:06:45

So in other words, whatever we have given you temporarily, we have given this to you how temporarily think of a house,

00:06:46 --> 00:07:09

one person purchases it, all right, he uses it. And then what happens one day he sells it, when he sells it now the house belongs to somebody else. Right. And then the second owner also, after some time sells it now belongs to somebody else. And then it will belong to somebody else and then to somebody else. And this is the reality with everything in this world.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:38

No human being is an Absolute Owner of any property. Whatever we have, we did not have it yesterday, it belonged to somebody else. And whatever we have right now, it's not going to remain with us forever. It's going to go to who for somebody else isn't an amazing? Some people when they die, they ensure that their wealth is buried with them. I mean, don't we see this? hasn't this happened in history. And then people find their graves.

00:07:40 --> 00:07:41

And they go and steal stuff from there,

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

isn't it?

00:07:45 --> 00:08:23

I remember, in northern Pakistan, there's a certain community, they're not Muslim. And I remember we went to visit there once. And they do the same thing that when somebody amongst them, they die, they actually bury with them all of their belongings. And as we were looking as we were going for a tour, they said that it's become very difficult for us to bury our dead. Because so often it happens that people find their graves because they go and bury them somewhere in the jungle in the forests, right in the mountains. They said that people wait to see that okay, somebody is dying, and then they will go find their grave. And they'll dig out all their possessions from there.

00:08:25 --> 00:08:34

You're not taking anything with you? Nothing. Things I mean, we have something and in our lives, do we lose those things?

00:08:35 --> 00:08:55

Yeah. Are they taken away from us? Yes. So, whatever Allah subhanaw taala has given us remember he has given it to us to us use it for what? For our malt Salah for righteous action to make our akhira if we hoard it, we keep it our loss.

00:08:57 --> 00:09:27

But if we give it to him, we are investing in who and ourselves for our gain for our future. So what unfilmable myjalah Co mustafina fee for Latina ama know that as for those who believe men come among you are unfuckable and then they also spend, they believe and then they spend also let them add your own cubby for them is a great reward. Why a great reward for spending

00:09:29 --> 00:09:34

because it's not easy to spend in the way of Allah. And Allah knows that.

00:09:35 --> 00:09:52

Allah Himself says what to a boon al Maleh Hogben jamaa you love wealth with an immense love her been Gemma, you love it too much and something that we love too much. It's very difficult to park live it. It's very difficult to give it away.

00:09:53 --> 00:09:59

Allah says what little till and fossil show stinginess is where

00:10:00 --> 00:10:46

Then the souls, stinginess and sure is extreme greed and extreme stingy pneus that you just want stuff for yourself and you don't want to give anything away. This is the nature of men. This is the weakness of men. So the one who overcomes this weakness and he spends in the way of Allah, Allah says Lahoma JRun can be for them is a great reward. Is that enough of an incentive? For some it's not Allah says, Well My Allah calm, what is wrong with you? That let me know Nabila that you do not believe in Allah? Why would you not believe in Allah? What's preventing you what's holding you back? That you don't believe in Allah? Well, as soon we have the rule come, while the messenger is calling

00:10:46 --> 00:10:57

you, lead to me know build up become to believe in your Lord. Why don't you believe in Allah when the messenger is calling you to believe in your lord in Allah?

00:10:58 --> 00:11:04

Meaning if the messenger is calling you to believe in Allah, then you must respond to his call.

00:11:05 --> 00:11:30

Why? Because the messenger is truthful. He is honest, what are the AHA, the mythical calm another reason, while he has taken from you, your Meath out your covenant, in quantum meaning, if you should be truly believers, now this can be understood in two ways. The first way in which we can understand this is that we thought over here is referring to the earth Aleste.

00:11:31 --> 00:12:01

The last, the covenant that was taken from all people before they were sent into this world, right? That Allah subhanaw taala says, allow us to build up become, Am I not your Lord? And all people said, Follow Bella, of course you are shaheed now we bear witness, we bear witness that You are our Lord. So Allah subhanaw taala is reminding us over here that look, you took that promise with me before you took that promise? What happened? Now you won't believe in Allah.

00:12:02 --> 00:12:08

Now you won't worship Allah, what's wrong? Why are you contradicting yourself? Why are you going against your promise?

00:12:09 --> 00:12:17

Secondly, what are the other Meetha kakum He took your pledge, this is referring to the Prophet sallallahu already who said the Rasul

00:12:18 --> 00:12:33

that the messenger is calling you to believe in Allah and believe in Allah over here means increase your faith in Allah by performing certain actions, whatever command it is, that Allah has given you because remember, Eman includes Ahmed salah,

00:12:35 --> 00:12:45

and now the Meetha doc, the covenant is referring to the Pledge of Allegiance that people would give to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when they would believe

00:12:46 --> 00:13:29

the men and the women they would make a promise with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, the women for example, that we will not kill our children. People in general that we will not steal, we will not worship idols alright we will not commit Zina. So what got a hot cocoa in control movement in in total man that is seven this has mentioned that what guru near Matala here aleikum wa Mia Theca who levy Werth aka Combi, it called him Samira Anna will Alterna the promise of Samara now will Athar now that whatever will be instructed, we will do it. So you promise the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, that whatever command you're given, you will do it. Now what's going on?

00:13:30 --> 00:14:12

That Allah subhanaw taala is giving you a command, and you're not doing it, you're not fulfilling it? What's wrong with you In Kuntum? Momineen? Who will levy he is the one who now how do you revive your faith? How do you strengthen your faith? Allah subhanaw taala says that he is the one who Allah is the One who universally or Allah or D Who sends down on his servant I asked him beginner verses that are beginner that are clear evidence versus that should remove all your doubts. Versus that should fill you with enthusiasm versus that should drive you to action.

00:14:13 --> 00:14:44

So you want to revive your faith, strengthen your faith, go back to the Quran, refer to the Quran reflect upon it, who will levy Yuna Zilla Allah or de ir Tim Burnett. And why has Allah revealed the Quran? Leo rigea comin of Lulu Murthy Illa news in order to bring you out of darkness into light. bring you out of darkness into light. Now this is mentioned elsewhere also bringing people out of darkness into light. Can you think of an ayah

00:14:47 --> 00:14:49

00:15:00 --> 00:15:08

takes them out of darkness and brings them into light. So yes, there's one darkness which is disbelief.

00:15:09 --> 00:15:16

So Allah brings people out of that darkness of disbelief into the light of Eman into the light of faith.

00:15:18 --> 00:15:34

But here Allah is saying that he's has sent the Quran he revealed the Quran. Why? In order to bring you all believers out of darkness into light. What does it mean? There are levels of darkness,

00:15:35 --> 00:15:40

there are levels of darkness, one level is absolute total darkness,

00:15:41 --> 00:15:44

total darkness, and that is off Cowfish.

00:15:45 --> 00:15:54

Right. But then there is another level of darkness. It's not total darkness, you can see, you can see, but not clearly.

00:15:56 --> 00:16:03

And this is the darkness off. It is the darkness of ignorance.

00:16:04 --> 00:16:10

It could be the darkness of sin. It could be the darkness of laziness

00:16:11 --> 00:17:07

could be the darkness of hypocrisy. It could be the darkness of extreme grief, to a point where a person is giving up hope. Bad o'clock, weakness of faith, weakness of action, these are all darknesses. And who falls in these darknesses it's the believers because they're human they make mistakes. So each time a person falls into such a darkness, not total darkness, but this type of darkness of sin. Aggression, right? Bad o'clock. Bad thoughts about Allah with iman a person makes these mistakes. Then what is it that will bring him out of that darkness into light? The Quran, refer to the Quran.

00:18:06 --> 00:18:17

the Messenger when he recites the Quran, what is he doing? He's taking those who believe and do righteous deeds out of darkness into light.

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

What do we think? Oh, I'm so good. We're so deceived about ourselves. Just because we know a few Arabic words or we have read a part of the Quran or that because our hijab is bigger than somebody else's we then we're so good. We're so good. There's always a need to come out of darkness because we all fall into darkness. Allah is saying,

00:18:42 --> 00:19:02

Allah is saying, Li You region Lavina Amano, WA middle slowly hurt me no Luma tequila north, even those who believe and do righteous deeds need to come out of darkness. And each and every one of us has our own darkness. Think about it. We all have our dark sides, don't we?

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

In our personal lives, in our relationship with Allah's panel data, in our relationship with the people around us, we all have our dark sides. And Allah knows about them because he knows what is inside of us. We can't hide from him. So there's always a need for improvement, to come out of darkness and go towards light and what is it that will do that? It is the Quran in surah Abraham Iowan Allah says le flam rah Kitab on ans Allahu La chica li to hurry. Janessa Mina lumati Illa nor be it near be him.

00:19:39 --> 00:19:45

That this is a book that Allah has revealed why, so that you bring people out of darkness into light.

00:19:46 --> 00:19:59

So who will lead the unit Zulu Allah de ir timbre? kienet Leo Khadija Camino Zulu Marathi Illa news. We're in Allah has become an indeed Allah is with you, Laura Ufa Rahim surely most

00:20:00 --> 00:20:45

Kind and Merciful. He's very kind, very affectionate and merciful towards you. This is why He sent you this book. This is why He sent this revelation to wake you up every time you fall asleep to drive you to action every time you become lazy to bring you into light every time you get comfortable in your darkness. We're in the Lucha become Laura over Rahim. Allah Who wants good for you? This is why he has sent this Quran to you. Well May Allah calm and what is wrong with you? alert on filco that you do not spend feasable Allah in the way of Allah meaning, why don't you? What is wrong with you? What's preventing you? Why shouldn't you? You must, you must spend in the way of

00:20:45 --> 00:21:02

Allah especially because well Allah He Mira who somehow worth you will love to Allah Who belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth. What is Mila Well, Rotha, what is Mira Mira is basically inheritance.

00:21:04 --> 00:21:08

Right? And inheritance is distributed when

00:21:09 --> 00:21:11

when somebody dies, right?

00:21:13 --> 00:21:19

So, what is the saying that to Allah belongs the inheritance of the heavens and the earth.

00:21:21 --> 00:21:30

Any part of the heavens or any part of the earth that is right now occupied or owned, supposedly owned by someone

00:21:31 --> 00:21:38

will ultimately be lost by them. And it will end up with who with a hit a wall and

00:21:41 --> 00:21:42

it will end up with Allah.

00:21:44 --> 00:21:45

So it's as if we're being told

00:21:46 --> 00:22:30

Allah has given you this wealth right now. And he's made you an offer you spend in Allah's we use this money to make your aka and you're holding on to it? Why are you holding on to it? How long? Do you think you're going to keep it? How long? Do you think you're going to keep all of this with you? Whether it is your health, or your time? Or your money? Or your children? Whatever Allah has given you? Do you think you can keep it forever? No. Sooner or later you will lose it all in sort of money, am I a 40, Allah says in Nana nodetool, herbal woman I lay her, we are going to inherit the earth and whatever is upon it, whatever is upon it. So what happens is that

00:22:31 --> 00:22:41

we have an opportunity to do something good. And we delay, these verses are creating a state of almost urgency for us that do something you don't have long.

00:22:42 --> 00:22:47

You don't know when you're going to lose it all. You're not going to keep this all forever.

00:22:48 --> 00:23:27

Stop hoarding. Give in the way of Allah unfuckable spend, why won't you spend what is wrong with you, you're not keeping this forever. It belongs to Allah ultimately, and he has given this to you temporarily, so that you can do something. So don't sit with it, do something with it. And if you keep waiting for things to change, for things to get easier, like you know, some people that just keep their money thinking that I'm gonna wait until, you know, the best time for purchasing gold or silver or whatever, making an investment comes in. I'm just gonna keep waiting. And I'm gonna keep waiting, keep waiting. There is never going to be a perfect time. Every time you're making an

00:23:27 --> 00:23:29

investment, there is a level of risk involved, isn't it?

00:23:30 --> 00:24:13

I remember many years ago, many years ago, somebody said, Actually, many people said, This is the worst time to buy a house. You know why? Because it's very expensive. Just wait for one more year, and the markets gonna crash? What happened? Did it crash? He just got worse, isn't it? And what's happening until now? It's just going higher and higher. Right? So sometimes what happens is that we delay doing good because we say, I need things to get easier. We'll wait. When it's easier, then I'll do it. Do we do this with so many things in our lives? I can't do this right now. Because I'm very busy. I have to wait until next year, I have to wait until two more years. I have to wait until

00:24:14 --> 00:24:19

some people say I have to wait until I'm married. No, no. Before that. I have to wait until I'm done High School.

00:24:21 --> 00:24:30

All right. I have to wait until I get into university. I have to wait until I get engaged. And then what happens I have to wait until

00:24:31 --> 00:24:33

I'm married. I have to wait until I'm settled.

00:24:34 --> 00:24:43

I have to wait until I deliver my child. Then I have to wait until the kid goes to school. And then I have to wait until

00:24:44 --> 00:24:45

he goes to high school.

00:24:46 --> 00:24:50

And I have to wait until he goes to university. I have to wait until he gets married.

00:24:52 --> 00:24:59

I have to wait until the grandchildren are born. I have to wait until the grandchildren are older. It just never stops. Does it? It now

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

Never ever stops. And if we keep waiting, we are depriving ourselves. We are depriving ourselves. I met this lady recently, I've actually known her for many years. And I saw her after a long time. And she looked very good. I mean, physically, we know good shape, Mashallah. Taking care of her hair, you know, her physical appearance, and I'm like, Wow, you look great. She's not a Muslim, so I couldn't really, you know, have a religious conversation with her. But anyway, she said, You know what, I realized, I have to take care of myself.

00:25:36 --> 00:26:27

Since so many years, I've been giving 100% of myself, to my family, to my children, I still take care of them. But I realized that I have to take care of myself, because I've been neglecting myself so much, that now I'm suffering. So this is true. If we keep delaying, if we keep waiting, who are we depriving ourselves and Allah subhanaw taala says lay Yes, the women come. They're not equal among you, who's not equal among you, men and Facom, in Kabul factory. Those who spend before the conquest, the victory, Wakata, and he also fought, meaning they're not equal to those who spent in the way of Allah and fought in the way of Allah after the victory.

00:26:28 --> 00:27:14

There are two different groups. What is this Fatima referring to remember that the Sahaba they understood father as soon who they be because Allah says enough at the Halacha that her Medina and that father is which one? Her they be at the Treaty of her Arabia? All right. So if we did that opinion, what does it mean? That the people who spent in the way of Allah and fought in the way of Allah, their level is much higher than that of those who came later. And after sooner they via, they spent in the way of Allah and they fought in the way of Allah? Because Allah says, Allah, Allah, Allah Muda, Rajasthan, those are greater in rank, who are those who strove before the Treaty of

00:27:14 --> 00:27:24

Arabia, Mina Lavina, and Facom. embargo, Wakata Lu, compared to those who spent later on, and also fought later on.

00:27:25 --> 00:27:35

However, we're calling Anwar the Allahu Krisna. To all Allah has promised a good reward. Well, Allah hoobie, Matt Dharma Luna Javi. And Allah is Knowing of whatever you do.

00:27:36 --> 00:27:59

All of them, all of the believers who strive in the way of Allah, Allah has promised them a great reward. However, those who did it before the victory before the conquest, they have a greater rank. Why? Because they were savvy Kuhn. And remember, there's a difference between the Saba cone and the US Hubballi. I mean, isn't that what we learned in Slovakia?

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

Isn't there a difference? Who were the cyber con? Those who are first? And who are the US? How will you mean? Those who are right, but they come later.

00:28:09 --> 00:28:10

They don't initiate.

00:28:11 --> 00:28:15

They don't work when it's hard. They do it. But only when things are easy.

00:28:17 --> 00:28:23

Sacrificing at the time of need is a real sacrifice. And for that as a reward that is unmatched.

00:28:24 --> 00:28:36

And when everything is done, then coming at the end, and having your finger scraped or something in order to be considered amongst the ranks of the martyrs. That doesn't work.

00:28:38 --> 00:28:40

Think about it. Imagine there's a big,

00:28:41 --> 00:29:04

important event in your family. Let's say somebody's getting married. Well, that's too big. Let's say there's a dinner at your house. And your mom says I need your help. You say Sure. Sure, Mom. I'll be there. And then what happens? She's been working since morning. She expects you to be there sometime in the morning. But you show up when? 15 minutes before the guests are supposed to arrive?

00:29:05 --> 00:29:25

15 minutes before that. And then what's left to do? Your mom is upset. Where were you? What were you doing? Why can't you leave your phone already? Right? And you say I'm here to tell me what to do? Well, everything has been done. Yeah, sure. You can, you know, you can maybe lay the table. But all the major work has been done.

00:29:26 --> 00:29:37

Right? So yes, you're laying the table will be appreciated. But don't think it's the same as working since morning. It's not the same. So don't expect the same reward.

00:29:39 --> 00:29:44

You understand the difference? At the time of need, even if a person gives a little bit.

00:29:45 --> 00:29:47

It matters a lot.

00:29:49 --> 00:29:54

And when everything is there, and a person brings a lot that matters very little.

00:29:56 --> 00:30:00

Because it's not the quantity that matters. It's when you do

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

To the work that matters at a time of critical need, or at a time when it's convenient.

00:30:06 --> 00:30:09

When things are tough when you're the only one.

00:30:10 --> 00:30:24

And when you have to give it you're 100%. You know, financially, mentally, physically, you have to invest 100% of yourself into something, you can only do it if you're sincere. And later on when everybody's doing it, where things are easier,

00:30:25 --> 00:30:50

then I mean, the effort is less, the level of sincerity is less, the level of hardship is less so of course, there will be a difference in their reward also. Now the differences with the sooner they be right before soon who they be before the Treaty of her they via remember the treaty, or they via was in the sixth year of Hijra. Before that. Were there any battles? Which ones the Battle of

00:30:53 --> 00:31:02

the first battle of British and remember, the people who participated in the Battle of whether they were the best of Muslims? Right. Then there was a hood.

00:31:03 --> 00:31:25

Right? heavy losses. And then another major one was the Battle of the Trench. The zap that was also extremely difficult. remember some of the Larsa Well, Bella tell Kulu will Hannah Jeff, hearts were reaching up to the throats? They were so anxious, so nervous, so frightened? This was their state.

00:31:26 --> 00:31:40

And they were also suffering from extreme hunger. Remember, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was lifting up something, a rock or some dirt and Jabil DeLorean who saw there were two stones die to the Prophet saw the loss him stomach because of extreme hunger.

00:31:41 --> 00:31:49

So remember that these battles were extremely hard. If you went on these battles, what did that mean? You'd probably die.

00:31:50 --> 00:31:56

And if you were going in these battles, what did that mean? That you had to spend from your own pocket?

00:31:58 --> 00:32:05

Things were tiny, very difficult. Financially, Muslims were struggling a lot. There was a lot of fear.

00:32:06 --> 00:32:11

So those who kept going at such a time when things were so tough.

00:32:12 --> 00:32:16

When people looked at them with doubt, when people call them crazy,

00:32:18 --> 00:32:28

when their own family abandon them, remember the words of the monastic when the hypocrites all their criticism and their mockery, this happened at that time, after soon who they be or what happened.

00:32:29 --> 00:32:40

There was peace in the land. Why? Because of the treaty, right, which meant that there was going to be no battle, no war between the Muslims and the Mushrikeen.

00:32:41 --> 00:33:07

Up until now, this was constant defensive. Now it was offensive. Now, it was time to take revenge against the people of Hiva. That was easy. Why? Because there was a lot of gain. Those people just locked themselves up in their fortresses. And that's it, they just had to listen and basically wait it all out. And that's what happened. So Allah subhanaw taala makes a distinction over here,

00:33:08 --> 00:33:17

between those who strove at a time of extreme difficulty, and those who strove when things were easier. Think about it.

00:33:18 --> 00:33:33

If you have certain friends, who are with you, and no matter what you're going through, do they hold a special place in your heart, compared to those who just remember you when they need something from you? Is there a difference? There is a huge difference.

00:33:35 --> 00:34:06

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Let the Subaru us hobby, do not reveal my companions do not say something bad about them, do not say anything bad about my companions. And he repeated this. He said by him in whose hand is my life, if one amongst you would have spent as much gold as ordered, it would not amount to as much as one of them would spend as how much only a handful of dates. So you spend

00:34:07 --> 00:34:57

how much amount of gold equivalent to mount or hurt. And also Javi spent how much just a handful of dates. Just a handful. A fraction of that mount, you give a mountain of gold and charity, it will never ever be equal to what the Sahaba have earned. Never because they worked at a time when no one was working. This drove at a time when no one was trying this spend in the way of Allah when no one was spending. They meant it. This is why the son of they would say that one of the Sahaba one of the Sahaba who was with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, every one of them and his face got covered with dust. Because he was in the way of Allah with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa

00:34:57 --> 00:34:58


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


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

As getting covered with dust would be better than the actions of your entire life. Even if you lived the life of new Harley Salem,

00:35:12 --> 00:35:18

you live 950 years and you fill it with acts of worship. That's all you do.

00:35:19 --> 00:35:27

That is nothing compared to the one journey that the Sahaba participated in with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:35:28 --> 00:35:29

there is a difference.

00:35:30 --> 00:35:56

Everybody wants to be on the winning team, isn't it? When gifts are being given, when rewards are being given, everybody wants to share but when it's time to work, not everybody wants to work. So Allah subhanaw taala is reminding us over here. Lay us the women come man unfair communicable fat Hey, workout will turn out the same. Why are you delaying? If you keep delaying

00:35:57 --> 00:36:01

you're gonna lose out you're depriving yourself presentation

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

he was holy

00:36:10 --> 00:36:11
