this Mala Rahim methyl ladina Yun Falcone I'm wala home feasable Allah the example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah camera fairly hot button is like a seed of grain. Um but that savasana bill which grows seven spikes, fee could listen Bula to me or to have BA in each spike is 100 grains. Wallah Allah who you are a fully mania share. And Allah multiplies his reward for whom He wills will Allah who is the owner name, and Allah is all encompassing and knowing.
In this verse, Allah subhana wa Tada tells us an example of those people who spend their wealth in the way of Allah. That how ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada causes the reward of their spending to multiply many times over, just like a grain of seed that grows into a plant and brings forth many more greens, hundreds and 1000s more. We see in the context, this idea is placed in a very beautiful place. First of all, we see the previously inserted Bacara we have been taught to spend in the way of Allah and Allah subhanaw taala tells us that when a person spends in the way of Allah then they are lending a loan to
Allah, meaning Allah subhanaw taala will certainly benefit them He will reward them he will compensate them he will return what they give to him, what they give for his pleasure. And Allah subhanaw taala also says in Surah Baqarah verse 245 that meander ledee Euclid Allah CARDONE has Santa Fe EULA refund for you bar if a hula hoop a bar often Kathira that who is the one who will lend Allah a loan and this loan will be good. And Allah subhanaw taala will multiply that for him many times over multiplied times many times over Allah subhanaw taala will multiply that loan and return it to the person, meaning the reward will be much greater than what the person has given what
a person will receive from Allah will be much greater than what they gave. And here in this idea, Allah subhanaw taala tells us precisely how much the reward will be multiplied any, not just the fact that it will be multiplied many times over. But Allah subhanaw taala tells us specifically how much it will be multiplied how many times over. We see that in the previous verse, Allah subhanaw taala gives us proofs of resurrection, where Ibrahim already has sent him asked his Lord, that Eleni kafer, to heal Mota that, Oh my Lord, show me how will you bring life to those who are dead. And Allah subhanaw taala showed him how he will bring life to those who are dead in the eye. And before
that, also, we learned another proof of resurrection, where we learned that a man passed by a town which was into ruins completely. Nobody was living over there houses were deserted, uninhabited, and the man wondered, how will this all of these people come back to life after they have died and Allah subhanaw taala showed that men how He will resurrect the dead. So the Lord who causes the dead to come back to life, he will ensure that the reward of what you give in his way lives on that what you give in the way of Allah doesn't just die. It doesn't just finish, it doesn't come to an end. No, Allah, the One who will bring life to the dead, is able to cause your charity to continue to benefit
you, what you give in his way, Allah subhanaw taala can cause it to grow and multiply many times over and on the Day of Judgment, the day when the dead will be resurrected, then the action the deed that will help a person a lot is in fact FISA beat Allah, what they have spent in the way of Allah. Because you see, it is not enough for us to simply know that there is life after death, that we will be resurrected that Allah subhanaw taala will bring us back to life after we have died. Yes, we believe in that yes, we know that. But knowing in the knowing this is not enough. What this knowledge demands is preparation that we prepare for that day. So what should we do to prepare for
that day when we will be brought back to life? Allah subhanaw taala directs us to a very beneficial good deed and that good deed is to spend in the way of Allah so that we will be rich on that day. So Allah subhanaw taala tells us methylone Ludhiana Yun Falcone m y la home feasability LA, Mata Lu example Alladhina of those who the word methyl is from the root letters mean Fela and it means example. So the example of the people who Yun feel Pune they spend noon fair coffee is the route. They spend a Mwana home, their properties, their wealth, and while is the plural of men, so they spend their wealth feasable Allah, they spend their wealth in the way of Allah. So this is the
example of their spending, meaning methylone nephropathy. ladina the example of the spending of those people who give their wealth in the way of Allah, meaning when you give something in the way of Allah, then the example of that is like that of a seat. Or here, the example is off the spender, the giver, the one who spends in the way of Allah, that cometh Elizalde rehab. That meaning the one who spends in the way of Allah is like the one who plants a seed. One who sews a seed. And Allah subhanaw taala mentions over here the spending of wealth specifically, because the word wall is the plural of Mal from the root letters. Meanwhile, lamb and Mal is anything
that is in the possession of a person. It could be a piece of land, it could be a house, it could be a building, it could be clothing, it could be investment funds, it could be some shares that a person owns in a company. It could be cash, it could be Bitcoin, it could be clothing, it could be food, anything that a person has possession of that is man. So they spend their wealth. And Allah subhanaw taala calls it their wealth, even though all wealth belongs to Allah. But by saying their wealth, Allah subhanaw taala is giving us some kind of liberty over here that you know, this is, this is yours. So what are you going to do with it? What choices are you going to make with it?
Allah subhanaw taala honors honors us with that this is a privilege that Allah has given us that He has made us people have wealth, or whatever wealth that he has given us, that is a privilege. So they spend their wealth feast Sabine Allah, in the way of Allah. Now, what does it mean to spend one's wealth in the way of Allah to spend one's wealth in the way of Allah feasibility aroma, explain that feasable Allah is essentially jihad. It is to spend in the Cause of jihad. Now, there is a Hadith in which we learn the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that mon sama Yeoman feasable Allah, but Allah who would who are on a nerdy Submariner Khalifa, that the person who fasts
for one day in the way of Allah, that Allah will keep his face away from hellfire for a distance that is covered by a journey of 70 years. And I remember he brings this hadith in Kitab al jihad in the book of jihad, because according to his understanding and the understanding of many irlam feasterville, Allah means jihad. So they spend their wealth in the way of Allah. Now, if you think about it, what is the purpose of jihad, the purpose of jihad is to defend Muslim lands. And yes, sometimes jihad is offensive to remove the power of oppressive rulers, and let the truth of Islam reach people. But ultimately, the goal of jihad, remember, it is not to cause death and destruction.
Jihad is not insanity, like people like to portray it. No, jihad is a noble, excellent deed that is for the purpose of strengthening, establishing and spreading the religion of Allah. And one way of doing that is through war. But war is not the only way. Jihad can also be with the column with the pen, where a person exerts their effort, in order to write about Islam, in order to take the message of Islam to people to dispel their doubts, to answer their questions to provide clarity. And it is well known that research writing publication, all of this requires a lot, a lot of funding. This is well known to do any kind of research funding is required. So for example, when it comes to writing
about Islam, right, this is part of FISA beat Allah, when it comes to teaching people about Islam, taking the message of Islam forward, whether it is through media, or through publications, or or any way all of that is is part of feasable Allah. And in sort of con which is a monkey surah Allah subhanaw taala says in verse 52, that wotja hit home big hadn't Kabira that strive against them, with this a great striving and with this with it, it is referring to the Quran, meaning strive against your opponents with the Quran, how that you recite it, you explain it, you convey it, you live it, even if people don't want to listen, even if they don't want to make any room for the
Quran, use thrive, and the recitation of the Quran or rather teaching people how to recite the Quran. And, you know, explaining it conveying it, you know, printing the most have all of this also requires funding. So, to establish places and institutes, to, you know, develop programming, and, you know, train people where people can learn to recite, memorize understand the deen of Allah, then all of this requires funding. So this spending feasable Allah is specifically spending for the religion of Allah, to spread the religion of Allah to
to teach people about the religion of Allah. And remember that the way that Allah azza wa jal has superiority over his creation, spending on the religion of Allah is also superior to spending on any other cause. spending in the way of Allah is the most of the it is the most superior form of charity. It is the best form of charity. In a hadith we learn, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if Boileau sada Kotti, the most virtuous of charitable spending is the shade of a tent in the Cause of Allah. Isn't that amazing? That attend that is given in the Cause of Allah, and that provides shade to people. That is the best kind of charity, or giving the servant in the Cause
of Allah or a riding camel in the Cause of Allah, meaning anything that is given to support the religion of Allah in any way whatsoever. That is the best kind of charity. So for example, in your local masjid, if you donate the money for, for example, new air conditioning, a new roof, new carpet, or for example, new chairs, so that people can come and study the deen of Allah, people can come and learn the verses of Allah. People can come and listen to the Quran, they can come and establish their Deen, they can pray Salah you give the funding you you spend for, for example, the new microphone system, whatever it may be, then this is the best kind of sadaqa of Balu sada caught
the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam mentioned that it is giving something in the way of Allah. And you see, this is the best why? Because its impact is far reaching. You know, for example, when you spend money to give food to someone, all right, so for example, you give $100 to buy food, and then you take it to your friends, family, your acquaintances, and you and you serve it to them. That is excellent, because giving food is also a very virtuous deed, which Allah subhanaw taala loves, and it is something that, you know, is mentioned many times in the Quran.
And Jana is promised to the people who give food to others. So, this is excellent. But what is even better than that is that you feed the soul, the heart of a person, because you know what, you could have a full stomach, you could have more food than what you can eat. But you cannot be happy and you cannot feel satisfied until your soul is satiated. Until your heart is given what it is desperately in need of what it is hungry for. And what says she is the heart. What feeds the heart and soul is what it is the vicar of Allah. It is the knowledge of Allah is a bada it is servitude to Allah. And how can a person know about Allah and have love for Allah and worship Allah subhana wa Tada This
requires or even this requires knowledge. So if you spend that $100 or another $100 to for example, purchase some materials that will help people worship Allah better. Or you will spend this money to teach people the deen, for example, you invest in a cause where you know people are preparing materials, publications or media to educate people about Islam, then that $100 will bring you much greater reward than the $100 that you spend in giving food to people. Giving food is excellent, excellent. But feeding the souls of people is far more superior. So Alladhina Yun Falcone Anwar Levon FISA de la vie Sabina love first and foremost includes spending in the cause of Allah's
religion to support that to strengthen that to spread that to educate people about that to strengthen people in their Deen. Secondly, fee Sabine, Allah also includes spending in, in in any good work. So this includes all of the above will hide all of the you know, the good deeds. So sorry the bingeable said that this includes all acts of obedience to Allah, all good deeds. So for instance, if a person is giving anything for the pleasure of Allah, for instance, a person spends in Hajj you know, they want to go for Hajj, they want to go for Umrah so they spend many dollars to go for Hajj to go for Omura this is V subete Allah and Ibn Abbas Radi Allahu Anhu said that each day
at a home that is spent in Jihad and Hajj is multiplied 700 times. So, imagine if you buy a package for 15k The reward for that will be multiplied 700 times and that is over a million. So, it is as though you spent a million dollars you get the reward for a million.
So what you spend in obedience to Allah and obedience to Allah includes, you know, performing various acts of worship or doing things spending in causes, that that please Allah. So, for instance, you spend on your parents you spend on your relatives, on the orphans, those in need, the travelers you spend on you know your relatives, you give them a gift on your neighbors, those who are close to you, you do Ersan to them with your money, then this is also feasible Allah because you are spending in the way of Allah in obedience to Allah for the pleasure of Allah, you are spending for the cause that Allah subhanaw taala likes and when you spend in the way of Allah, then remember,
this is money that can be given to an individual. So, for example, you give money to an individual so they can go for Umrah, you buy their plane ticket for instance, you pay for their tuition, so that they can take a class or this can also be given to a cause right to a cause or for example, a group of people who are working together to, to to serve the religion of Allah or to serve the community. So for example, you spend you give a donation to the local Masjid you spend on a school, you know, so that children can be taught how to recite the Quran over there, or, you know, they're there they can be taught how to memorize the Quran over there. So, spending in the way of Allah
remember, it can be given to an individual and it can also be given to a cause. So, the example of those people who spend their wealth in the way of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala says the example is kammath Ali hubba it is like example of a grain Katha Lika like methyl example hubba have a green and the word hubba is from the root letters have Baa Baa and hubba is a seed and basically HEPA is that is a grain that people cultivate okay, why they harvest the plants for food. So, this is not just any seed but specifically things like wheat barley, because the crop that is harvested it is used as food as a staple. So chemically HEPA
and this hubba this seed this grain Allah subhanaw taala says is such that um but that it grows and but that is from noon betta embed is to grow. So it grows meaning that one seed that one grain grows savasana bill, seven spikes, okay. Now, Sanibel is the plural of Cymbala from the root letters seen known bad lamb Cymbala and you can see the singular form in the if equally some bulletins and avillez the plural of singular and singular is basically the spike, which is, so you see what when you plant a seed, and it grows a chute initially that shoot is what is just one, and as it grows, then you can see it branching, okay, you can see it branching. And at the end of each branch is what
a cluster of seeds. So that cluster of seeds at the end of the branch is what it is a Cymbala it is a spike. Okay, and that Spike has multiple grains. And you know, different plants grow differently. So for example, if you see, for instance, a lavender plant, you can see the seeds or the Greens there such that
you will see seven to 10 in one cluster. And you have a cluster on top of a cluster on top of a cluster. Sometimes there is you know, five or six clusters sometimes there's few and in some plants, you can see that there are multiple shoots coming out from one route from one route. In some cases, what happens is that from one route one seat there's only one spike
But here last panel Tara's mentioning that this seed is such there's so much blessing in it, that it grows seven spikes, and then physically some bulletin and in each spike, there are mere two hubba. There are 100 seeds 100 grains. So now what's happening out of one seed, one grain, you are harvesting how many 700 700? Now a person might say, Well, I've never seen anything like that, where you know one grain grows into seven spikes and each spike is 100 grains, this is not typical. Yes, it may not be typical, but can it be imagined? Yes, it can be. This is an example. And Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us over here, the blessing in in what you give in his cause, how Allah
subhanaw taala causes that to increase and multiply more than what you have ever seen. This is not a typical result, this is not a typical yield. You know for example, when you invest some money, you are told that the returns are 15% 5% 30% Sometimes you know you are told that you will get annual returns or you know, monthly or twice a year, things like that. But this is this deal that Allah subhanaw taala is mentioning over here is better than any deal that you have ever seen in the world. Because this is Allah subhanaw taala who is giving you the returns for your investment. So I'm better at savasana Vida fi Cooley symbol fi equally singular thing means to harbor now, I want you
to look at the word Sanibel. You see Sanibel is a plural of the word singular and in solid use of we have the plural soon Boulet sobre su lat Okay, that is mentioned over there. So there's two types of florals, some Goulet and snobby and there is a difference between these two plurals Sanibel is Germer Katraj All right, and some Goulet is Jamal Kala, any in Arabic sometimes you have different plurals for one word, why? Because one floral indicates
you know, just
a little more than two. Okay, so for example 345, but then another plural indicates a huge number, a huge number. So Sanibel is jammer. Katra it indicates a huge number. And the point over here is to show the abundance of the reward the gain that you receive from Allah, in return for your spending in his cause. So come if any have button but at savasana Villa frequently some bulletin me to harbor and then Allah says Allah who you are a fully may Usher and Allah multiplies, meaning the rewards lemania share for whomever he wills, the word ubar Evo is from the root letters, but are in fact, and muda is to multiply. So, this kind of multiplication of reward is for who it is for the one whom
Allah subhanaw taala once any, not everyone gets this kind of multiplication of reward. This is for those whom Allah subhanaw taala once and remember that Allah subhanaw taala is will he and his judgment are not random. Allah's Will and judgment is based on his knowledge, his justice, His mercy, His generosity. So, the multiplication of reward is in proportion to the sincerity with which a person gets the dedication, the purity of their deed and the effort that they exert. Now, remember that the minimum reward for a good deed any good deed is 10 times Allah subhanaw taala tells us and suitable interim i 160. That manager or Bill has an attic fella who I should I'm fairly happy that
whoever comes with a good deed, then he will have 10 times like it, meaning the reward will be multiplied 10 times over. When you recite one letter of the Quran, then what is the reward for that 10 has an ad, right? So and in Hadith we learned that when a person intends to do a good deed, then the reward of a good deed is recorded for them. When they actually do it. Then the reward is multiplied 10 times. Right. Also in Hadith we learned al Hassan and Toby actually I'm fairly happy. So a good deep breathing
was 10 times its reward. However we learn over here, that the reward of sadaqa of charity in the way of Allah can yield up to 700 times more rewards. Allahu Aquila, will Allahu Yubari fully mania shirt, the reward of Sudoku is not 10 times it is up to 700 times. And even that is actually not the limit. Because some of them I say, that will love what you blurry fully mania sharp, this is indicating that Allah subhanaw taala multiplies the reward more than 700 times even for whom He wills 700 times is not the maximum, it is not the maximum returns, the returns can be even more why because Allah is the father Alene he is the Possessor of great favor. So how do you increase in your
reward any How can you make sure that when you spend in the way of Allah, then you don't just get a little bit of reward in return, but you get multiple multiple rewards up to 700 and even more, how does that happen? Remember that the increase in reward the Mudaraba is determined by the state of the giver. And secondly, the condition of what is given. So, first of all the condition of the giver, so, the person who is giving it depends on their condition. So, if they're giving with sincerity, purely purely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala then of course, the reward will be multiplied, if they give it without seeking any return from people without expecting even a thank
you or any form of gratitude or any kind of praise from people, any they don't expect any kind of return, they only give for the sake of Allah, then the purer the intention, the greater the reward.
And likewise, part of the state the condition of the giver is that how in what manner do they give in in the way of Allah. So, for example, some people when they give, they just you know, give
uni just, you know, in a rush for example, without really giving much thought or they give it you know, their manner is rough, okay, they come across as rude and harsh, or someone who doesn't really care, but if a person gives kindly, lovingly, you know, in a good way, while making the recipient feel good and feel honored and dignified, then the manner in which you give also increases the reward, you see, sometimes the person is giving even to their own children, but they give in a way that the children feel horrible, horrible, that they would rather not have received that gift or that favor.
And other times, you know, there are people who give in such a gentle, generous, dignified way that the recipient field so happy and honored and respected.
Sometimes the person gives in such a way that others are encouraged to spend, alright. So, the condition of the giver, the way you give, that will either multiply the reward or diminish the reward. So, give in in an excellent way, some people they have a lot and they give very little out of it. Some people they have little to begin with, and from that they spend Subhanallah from that they spend any sometimes we think that you know when we have a savings of 50,000 then you know maybe we can spend in the way of Allah, you know, maybe when we have bought a new sofa set and we have renovated our house and when we have gone for such and such trip and when we have bought such and
such thing and we have fulfilled all of our desires and and needs and wants, then we can think about giving in the way of Allah and when they do give, they give little and then there is another person who has a very limited amount, very limited amount barely enough to fulfill their own needs with but from that also they take something out to give in the way of Allah yes in quantity may be very little, but look at their condition, they are experiencing poverty, they are experiencing shortage of wealth, but still they give in the way of Allah. So this is something that will increase their reward. Secondly, the reward is increased depending on the condition of what is given. So for
example, what you
are giving it could be $1,000. But if it is from property from wealth that is not halal, that is not that was not earned lawfully, then it will not bring any reward to a person. But if a person spends from their Halal earned money, then the reward will be more. Likewise, you may be giving, let's say some furniture as as you know, as as donation somewhere. And if that furniture is broken, it is old, then the reward will be less, if you're giving clothes in the code smell, or they are torn from somewhere, the reward will be less. But if you're giving something which is, you know, in very good quality than the reward will be more.
Likewise, in you could be giving $100, like the example that I mentioned earlier to feed someone in either body, or you could be giving the $100 to feed their soul to feed their heart to strengthen their connection with Allah subhanaw taala to bring the benefit, not just in that day, but to bring them benefit on the Day of Judgment. For example, if you if you pay for someone's tuition, so that they learn how to recite the Quran, or they memorize the Quran, then what happens? Imagine on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala tells that person that recited the Quran recite and ascend, and they reach high levels of paradise, how did they get there, you had a share in that you paid for
their tuition. So the reward will not just be 700 times now, the reward will be way more than 700 times, way more. So don't just, you know, be eager to spend in the way of Allah, but be eager to spend with utmost sincerity in the best manner, in the best place, the best quality, and the best quantity that you can come up with. You know, there's different ways of spending, there are times when you can spend a little here a little there, right, and that is fine. But then if you save up, and then you give a big amount somewhere, and you bring someone out of poverty, or you help fund a major program, right, then the reward for that will be different. So be wise in how you spend in the
way of Allah be deliberate. You know, when it comes to spending on yourself, you are careful, right? That you don't just spend randomly you think about it, that what is the best way of making use of this money? How much should go into savings? How much should go into groceries? How much should go into spending on myself? How much should go into spending in such and such cars, you're very deliberate, you're careful. And just like that, when you're giving in the way of Allah seek out the best ways, and many different places and avenues where you can give in the way of Allah.
So Allah will you do a full leishmania SHA, Allah multiplies the reward for whomever He wills. And we see that like I mentioned to you earlier that the minimum reward for a good deed is 10 times right? We learned from this idea that the reward of giving in the way of Allah is up to 700 times and 700 times is not the limit because Allah subhanaw taala can multiply the reward even more will love the Lord if we remain sharp. And did you know there are some deeds for which the reward is unlimited? Any the reward is is you cannot quantify it it's immeasurable, immeasurable.
And what are those deeds of those deeds is actually fasting. We learn in a hadith, that all of the deeds of the son of Adam are multiplied, right meaning the reward of the deeds or the good deeds is multiplied from 10 to 700 times. But Allah subhanaw taala says about the fast enough sown except for the fasting for inner who Lee will enter GCB, it is for me and I will give reward for it Subhan Allah, the reward for fasting cannot be quantified it is immeasurable and the reward of Sobor the reward of patients also we learn the Quran in the Maya FASAB Aruna Jiang bility. He said, Indeed, the patient those who are those who observed patients will be given the reward without any measure.
So well Allah will Yubari fully may Usher we should be eager to do you know to not just increase in our good deeds but do those deeds for which the reward is multiplied many times over and all them as patients, many people fast but they don't observe patients.
Under fast will law who is the owner Eileen, and Allah is all encompassing and he is Eileen.
Allah is where SEER was there is from the root letter as well seen right from the word WUSA. And what this means is that Allah subhanaw taala. His all of his attributes are our West their meaning their vest. So Allah subhanaw taala his knowledge is not limited, it is abundant, it is vast, is all encompassing. Allah subhanaw taala has power, His mercy, His forgiveness, they're not constricted, no, they're vast, they're all encompassing. And this is why we should always have hope in the Mercy of Allah. Because, yes, our sins may be many and very great, but remember Allah subhanaw taala is forgiveness and His mercy are even more vast, more greater than the number of hours since and he is
Eileen, he is ever knowing. So, he knows the, the, you know, he knows what you give, and he knows the condition of, of, you know, the person who is giving what the state of their heart is. And he also knows what you are giving, what amount you are giving in what manner you are giving, what worth it is, and what impact it will have, will look worse here on Arlene. And these names are very relevant in this context. Because think about it, Allah subhanaw taala is, he is telling us about the reward of what you give in his way, how he can multiply that to 700 times and even more. What does that tell us about Allah subhanaw taala has appreciation, his generosity, his treasures, his
power, his his resources, he is Was there any it his our thought, in his giving, he was so generous in his favor, he is so generous, he is so vast, he gives so much and it had these winners that if the if all of the nation were together Together and ask Allah and Allah subhanaw taala would give to each person, what they are asking, that would not reduce the treasures of Allah. So think about it, if Allah subhanaw taala can put so much blessing in one seed, one donation of yours, it has so much capacity than what do you think about the capacity of the creator of that seed, the creator of that capacity? Allahu Akbar wala who is here on early Arlene, and the reward that Allah subhanaw taala
gives, remember, that he multiplies that reward on the basis of his knowledge. He knows what the condition of our heart is, before we give, when we give, and after we give, and he knows what we have given where we got that from, how much we love it, and how attached we are to it. But still we are giving it Allah subhanaw taala knows all of this will Allah who is here on our league, and just like a seed, right, a seed, Allah subhanaw taala knows about every single seed where it lands, what its potential is, what it can grow, and how far its fruit will reach. You know, sometimes, when you go to the grocery store, then look at where the food is coming from. And sometimes you will be
amazed how the food that is in front of you is coming from a different continent and across the seas. So, how He Allah subhanaw taala knows about this, that how it plant grows in one continent, across the oceans, and the food that it produces. It it is consumed by someone who is 1000s of miles away.
And you don't know what you give in the way of Allah, how far reaching its impact will be. How far reaching its impact will be. That is up to Allah subhanaw taala to bring your job is to give the best that you can with the best, the purest of your intentions in the best place that you can. Allah subhanaw taala he is last year in early he is able to bring more and you know results than you can even imagine. Now some of us even say that these verses which tell us about the reward and the manner of spending in the way of Allah, these verses were revealed about our tournament even URL for the Longhorn who and or smite have been our fan or the Longhorn and they said that when the prophets
of Allah who are to send them in
tended to go for the expedition of the book. And the expedition of the book was an extraordinary expedition. The journey was very long, it was extremely hot at that time, and it was harvest season. And the enemy was also very New Guinea, or or powerful rather. So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged people to spend in the way of Allah at this occasion. And when he did that, are the Rockmount of an oath or de la Martin who brought 4000 Dirham. And he said, O Messenger of Allah, I had 8000. So I have kept 4000 For my family, and 4000 I am lending to my Lord as a loan. He literally gave half of his net worth, basically, in the way of Allah. But he said, I am lending this
to my Lord as a loan. Because Allah subhanaw taala calls such charity a loan, meaning that he will return it. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, may Allah bless you in what you kept for your family. And may Allah bless you in what you lent as a loan to your Lord or Usman roti Longhorn, who also brought you know, 1000 dinar in one narration, and he put them in the lap of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam imagine 1000 gold coins, he just put them in the lap of the Prophet sallallahu. Where do you send them? And the prophets of Allah who earlier seven began to turn them over with his hands. And he was saying that after this day, no matter what Earth man does, it will
not harm him. And he raised his hands, and he made the ark. He said, Oh Lord of Earth, man. I am pleased with Earth man. So you also be pleased with him. Allahu Akbar. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was extremely happy. When people brought such great amounts in in the way of Allah to support the cause of Allah. We also learned about some companions who could only bring gem the home, you know, the result of their hard labor, how they labored for the entire day. And all they earned was a handful of dates. And they brought that handful of dates to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to support the cause of Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala values, even a seed, the
tiniest amount that you give in the way of Allah.
Now, this example is a tangible example of the reward of spending in the way of Allah. And these, you know, examples that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran, they are very beneficial for us, because then we can see tangibly what the reward and benefit is. And when you can imagine, when you can envision the benefit the outcome when you have a tangible example, then this serves as motivation and encouragement. Because we like numbers, we like figures, alright, if someone were to tell you, for example, that invest your money in such cause the returns are pretty good. You're like, Okay, nice. But when they tell you exactly how much the returns are, all right, if they tell
you, for example, annual returns or 80%, for instance, what would you do? You would ask, tell me more? Tell me more. Because 80% is is a big deal. You're almost doubling your money every year. So the thing is that as human beings, we love wealth, and with that love of wealth, we also have some level of selfishness and the desire for more wealth. Allah subhanaw taala tells us the sort of ideas I ate were in the holy herbal Heidi Lesha did and indeed the human being is very intense in his love for wealth, integral fajr I are 20 Allah says what a boon and mela have been Gemma, you love wealth a great deal you need heaps and heaps of wealth you just you love them. And Allah subhanaw taala
also tells us in Surah Nisa, I have 128 that will be rotted and for social and present in human souls is stinginess, we love money. And we are we want all of it for ourselves. And we would love to have more like the prophets of Allah who already sent him said that if the son of Adam had a valley full of gold, he would like to have two valleys. Right? This is our nature. The moment you get some money, you think about how you can use it, and how you can grow it, how you can increase it. So Allah subhanaw taala teaches us over here, the best way of making
And our money grow,
saving our money and also making it grow. You know, for instance, some people, they have a habit of spending, right. And they know that if they have money sitting with them that money was is not going to stay safe. So in order to save their money, what do they do they give it to their mom, they give it to their dad, they give it to someone, that please keep this for me. And then when I need it, I will take it from you. Because if it sits with me, if it's in my bank account, if I have direct access to it, it's going to finish. So I need you to save it for me. Right. And some people, you know, they want to invest their money, they want their money to grow. So the moment they have, you
know, a spare $100 You know, a few $100 Or a few $1,000, whatever, immediately they think about growing their money. Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us the best way of making our money secure. All right, and also making it grow.
And how do you do that? You do that by spending in the way of Allah. Of course in other places in the Quran, we have been taught that Allah subhanaw taala does not demand everything from us, right? Rather, were minmetals upon our community have gone from what We have provided them they spend, meaning some at least some portion of what we have, we should give in the way of Allah. So the believer spends their wealth to earn the pleasure of Allah to draw close to Allah subhana wa Tada. And there are two conditions for spending in the way of Allah. The first condition is a class that we must spend with utmost sincerity, utmost sincerity, and talk to yourself, you know, talk to
yourself, tell yourself, give yourself a pep talk that you know, this is this is Lilla. This is modular. And I'm not going to tell anyone about it. I don't want people to find out about it. And I'm going to try to give the secretly or even if I'm giving it openly, and if people do find out about it, I want the reward from Allah. So if somebody takes it, and then they don't say thank you to me, Well, I wasn't expecting a thank you. If you know, for example, you give a donation and that you never receive an acknowledgement of your donation. Well, you weren't seeking that acknowledgement. Anyway. Yes, people should say thank you, people should acknowledge it is their
responsibility to show gratitude, but you should not expect it because Lalgudi do income Jezza and Willa shockula, we do not desire from you, we do not want from you any reward nor any gratitude.
Now, let's reflect on this example. Okay? Allah subhanaw taala is telling us in this example, that those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah than what they spend is like a seed, like a grain which grows seven spikes, and each spike has seven has 100 grains each. And so you have 700 In return,
like I mentioned earlier, one is that you feed
a person's body. All right, so grain habba, what does it do? It is food for the body. And in fact, feasable Allah is food for the heart and soul. All right, it is to feed the souls of people. And also when you give in the way of Allah, you're feeding yourself. Okay? Now, just as the process of farming or cultivating plants, this is a process that does not end All right. For instance, every season, seeds or grains that were had that were harvested the previous year, they are planted, right? crops are grown. And then at the end, they're harvested and some is eaten and some is kept for replanting. And for example, when a tree grows and grows fruit, then you know, the people eat
that fruit and then the seeds are saved and then they're planted and then you know, more plants grow. And then again, the seeds you know, they are used for growing more plants. Sometimes people do this deliberately sometimes it happens, the through nature and Allah subhanaw taala makes it happen without the work of any any person in the middle.
So just like that, the reward of spending in the way of Allah that can also be end less.
Any think about it, a plant that you grow today it's possible that the chain of
growth of plants, of plants of harvest of food that comes out of that grain continues until the day of judgment.
And it's also possible that what you give in the way of Allah, its impact continues for centuries. It's its impact continues. And he continues to benefit people in so many different ways for hundreds and hundreds of years,
hundreds of years. So, what are you investing for your real future? You know, when a person is earning an income, they keep thinking about how they can save for their retirement, how they can invest their money so that in their later years when they're no longer working, they still have a source of income, they have established a certain amount of wealth, which will continue to benefit them. Some people think beyond themselves. They're not just thinking about themselves, they want to invest for their children. And some people Masha Allah, their generosity is such that they want to invest some of their money for their grandchildren even.
And then there are those people who don't just think about their own family, they think about the children of the world, the future generations, they don't just think about what they will eat, what they will drink, if they will have enough to wear and and eat, they think about their Deen that will they be poor on the Day of Judgment, I don't want the children of the world, I don't want the future generations to be poor on the Day of Judgment, I want them to succeed on that day. So, they think about how they can take the knowledge of the deen to to the people of the world.
Another thing we can see in this example is that the yield the harvest depends on the nature of the seed or the grain any, if if the quality of the grain of the seed is is superior than the yield, the harvest will also be superior. But if the quality of the seed that is is poor, then the harvest will be like that also, right? The outcome, the final product will will also be of the same nature. So think about what you are giving in the way of Allah, what is the quality of your sadaqa? Are you giving it with sincerity? Are you giving it from your lawfully earned money? Are you giving it from something that you love for yourself, because when you give something that you love for yourself,
that brings even greater reward lantana will be Rohita to vehicle Minmatar hipbone you can never attain piety until you spend out of what you love. While you're out there, even a farmer or B, they give food in spite of love for it, any they love to eat that food themselves, but they give it to others to eat.
They would love to keep that wealth for themselves, but they give it to others. So remember that the reward of what you give depends on the quality of your spending in the way of Allah is your spending of superior quality? Or is it a cheap quality? Check your sadaqa check your sadaqa. And any it doesn't mean that that sadaqa has to be expensive, its dollar value has to be, you know, great. That of course matters but that's not the only thing. What matters is the condition of your heart, what matters is what love you you give.
Another thing is that when you plant a seed a grain, it is buried in the soil, right? It is hidden.
And when you give something in the way of Allah, initially, you feel like you have lost what you gave. All right, you feel like now you have little or you don't immediately see the benefit of what you give in the way of Allah. Right. For example, you give a donation, maybe online, you don't know where it's going. You don't know how people will benefit from it. You don't see the result immediately. And it's possible that you never see the result in your own life. You will see the result in sha Allah on the Day of Judgment, leave the results to Allah because in the law of failure could have be one hour. It is Allah who is the cleaver
Have the grain and the seed any Allah subhanaw taala causes seeds and grains to burst and grow. All right? That is up to Allah, your job is to give the best that you can. And your job is to bury the seed to plant it to give it when you put the money in the donation box, for example, it slips for from your head, it's gone, it's hidden from you. Right? You no longer see it. Now don't pursue because some people what they do is that once they give some kind of some charity, they pursue any they keep asking so what did you do with it? So how come I don't see the new fans yet? How come I don't see the new microphone system yet? How come you know what why the delay I gave the donation
for this cause where is it so don't pursue your job is to give and leave the results to Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala is the one who grows your your seeds, okay, the seeds that you do. In Hadith we learned that when a person gives charity from their Halal earning, and that charity could be just one day exceed sorry, one date fruit, okay, one day fruit, you give that in the way of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala is is going to accept it with his right hand. And Allah subhanaw taala will take care of it, he will cause it to grow, just as someone takes care of and nurtures and looks after a baby horse. All right. And so that one date will become a mountain in terms of reward
mountain, and you think about it a date versus a mountain is a mountain 700 times bigger than than the date no way more than that. So leave the growth to Allah. Okay, leave it to Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will cause it to grow. Now, another thing is that when you
plant a seed, for example, when you sow a seed, okay, and the plant grows, then you have to care for it. Okay. So for example, if you have a plant, then you have to water it, you have to ensure that you know it's getting sufficient water, it's getting sufficient sunlight, and things like that, and you're protecting it from anything that could cause damage to it. Likewise, once you give sadaqa once you spend in the way of Allah, you will have to preserve the reward and the benefit of your spending.
It's well known that a ready to harvest crop can be destroyed by one event by a single event, any one storm of you know, snow or hail or frost or fire whatever. In one in one event can literally wipe out the entire field. Right. So there are some deeds, some follow up deeds which can literally destroy the reward of your charity. And Inshallah, in the upcoming verses, we will learn about those deeds so that we can stay away from them. So it's necessary that we purify our intention before we give, when we give and also after we have given because sometimes what happens is that we're not boasting at the time of giving. Okay? But 10 days later, maybe a year later, maybe five years later,
we boast about it. You know, for example, you give a donation for
let's say a new microphone system at the masjid. All right. Three years later, you go with someone to the masjid and someone praises that oh Mashallah. The quality of the sound quality in this Masjid is excellent. And you say yeah, I gave, you know, 50% of it. My husband and I, we covered the cost of the new sound system in the masjid. So you didn't boast at that time, but you boasted five years later, that is enough to waste your reward. So don't do that. Preserve the reward of your good deeds, spending in the way of Allah. Now, there are many lessons that we can take from this idea. First of all, we learn that when we spend in the way of Allah, let us give it with utmost sincerity.
Secondly, we learn over here that it is necessary for all of us to spend in the way of Allah. Whatever little amount we can give, we should spend in the way of Allah don't think that spending in the way of Allah is just for the millionaires.
For the doctors of the Muslim community, for, you know, people who who own huge businesses in the Muslim community, for people who have inherited great amounts of wealth in the Muslim community, no spending in the way of Allah is for all of us. It doesn't matter what quantity we give that quantity can literally be one Hubba, one grain, any what is the size of a wheat grain, it's very tiny, Allah subhanaw taala values that much, he can cause that to grow into 700 more. So Allah subhanaw taala is very appreciative. And when we spend in the Cause of Allah, remember that this is something that benefits many people. it uplifts the condition of the people who are experiencing poverty. It
strengthens the bond of the Muslim community, it strengthens the community itself.
And the end, be hopeful we also learned from this ayat that we should have great hope in Allah subhanaw taala is generosity, his reward. If the Earth returns so much, that you put one seed in it, and it will give you 700 more. How much do you think the Lord of the earth will return to you? You give one thing in Allah's Cause he will give many times over. We learned in certain Bukhara I have 276 Allah subhanaw taala says that we're you're beside the court. Allah causes the sadaqa to grow any He multiplies, he increases the reward of charity. We learned that a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with a camel. All right, and he gave that to the Prophet salallahu
Alaihe Salam and he said that this is in the way of Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that this person will have 700 camels like that on the Day of Judgment. 700 So what you give in the way of Allah is certainly multiplied. So given the best way and hope expect for the best rewards from Allah subhanho wa taala. Now let's talk a little bit about spending in the way of Allah. First of all, we see that Allah subhanaw taala invites us to spend in his cause, and when you spend in the Cause of Allah, this is an investment. Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah Toba 11 that in hola hush Dada minimal Medina and Fusa home or am Wila home be unlovable Jana, that Allah has
purchased from the believers, their properties sorry, their lives and their properties in exchange for Paradise. Meaning when you spend in the way of Allah, and you exert physically in yourself in the way of Allah, then this is an investment This is a trade, Allah subhanaw taala will give you something in return and that is Paradise. Allah subhanaw taala warns us that spend before a day comes where no trade will benefit, no friendship will benefit.
And we learned in Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked that which who among the people is best, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that of loneliness in another nourishing Hyrcanus you need the best of people is the person who strives in the way of Allah with their wealth and with their self, any they spend from their wealth in the way of Allah, and they also bring themselves in the way of Allah. He, you see, one is that we just give donations here and there to different massage at different organizations different, you know, causes, but you know, these places don't just need money, they also need people, we need to physically go to such places
and populate them inhabit them, we need to be those people who are praying in the masajid we need to be those people who are studying in such places. So, populate these places. And we also learn the Prophet sallallahu Sallam warned us he said the wealthy persons will have little on the day of judgment. And those who have a lot today will have very little on the Day of Judgment, except for those whom Allah subhanaw taala gave wealth to and they spent it on their right on their left in front of them behind them, meaning just as the wind diffuses fragrance everywhere. Similarly, this person spends their wealth everywhere, everywhere. So be eager to give in many different places in
many different causes. So for example, you may be giving you may have given to you know, feed people. Excellent. You may have given some money locally. Excellent. You may have
Even some donation, you know back home. Excellent. You may have given money for, you know publications for, you know preparing media through which people can be educated about Islam. Excellent. And he diversify. And don't think that the donation that you gave on the odd night you know on the 23rd night is enough, if Allah subhanaw taala has given you more than give more like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you know to your right to your left before you behind you, just like the wind diffusers fragrance, you should also diffuse your wealth in the way of Allah and do not fear poverty. Because the prophets of Allah Who are you said, I'm told Bilal unfuck Bilal
will attack Shimon Ville Archie McClellan will be land spend and do not fear poverty from the one who owns the throne, meaning if you're giving for the sake of the Owner of the Throne, you think he's going to leave you poor. He's not going to leave you poor. He's going to give you more and the person who is stingy. We learn in the Quran in surah Mohamed is 38 When my ever called for in the Maya Mahalo infc. Whoever is stingy, he is only stingy against him against his self in he only harms himself. And those who do not spend their wealth in the way of Allah and they just hoard their gold and their silver. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran for Bashir hombre dab in Alene give them
news of painful punishment. And this shows us that giving the cat is mandatory, absolutely. But then beyond that, also, any we should be eager to spend our wealth in the way of Allah. Because when we spend our wealth in the way of Allah, we learned through the Toba 99 that in the house koruba to LA home, that this is a means of closeness to Allah, you draw close to Allah in verse 274. So with Bacara, we learned those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah, then they will have no fear. And they will not grieve. We learn that has an inverse lead reported that Tao will MOBA can be sadaqa that treat those who are ill among you through charity,
which means that when we experience illness of any kind, it could be physical, it could be mental, it could be any, any kind of ailment that we experience in our lives. Maybe you are perfectly healthy, and you see your children struggling in their health, then how do you how do you seek treatment? There's different ways. Of course, you make dua, you ask Allah Shafi to heal you, and then you take medication, right? But then you should also give sadaqa and this is something that the people of knowledge, you know, urge, urge others to do. We learn that our beloved Mobarak somebody came to him and complained to him of a wound that they had on their knee. And this person said that
I've had this wound for seven years on my knee, okay? And it's just not going away. And I have done different things to treat it and it's not going away. So please tell me what should I do? And our beloved Mobarak Rahim Allah He told him that goal and and have a well dug for people where people are in need of water. Okay, I mean, go to a place where people need water and have a well dug over there. So people have access to water people don't have to travel too far places to fetch water for themselves, make water accessible to them. And he said, I hope that as soon as you know you have you make water available to people in such a place, then this wound will also heal. And the person who
narrated this incident said that that man did that. And immediately his wound was healed. And he it stopped bleeding that the the blood and the pus etc, that was oozing out of that wound went away. So sadaqa when you spend, this is a way of protecting yourself. This is a way of healing yourself. And we also learned that when we give in the way of Allah, then this is something that brings us freedom. Okay, freedom from our difficulties. We learned in a hadith that yeah, he already said he gathered the Bani Israel and he instructed them to do many things and all of them was that he said that I command you to give sadaqa because the example of the one who spends who gives charity is
died of a man who has been captured by his enemy. And then they tie him up. They tie his hands to his next to his neck, and they also tie his feet and then they're about to kill him. But he says to them, can I please ransom myself with such and such wealth and they agree. So he sets himself free by giving his wealth and just like that, when you spend in the way of Allah, then you free yourself. You free yourself from what not just Hellfire but also in this life you free yourself from different problems and hardships that you find yourself trapped in.
We learn that Allah subhanaw taala says unfilled on field garlic spend an I will spend on you. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran so little and file is 60 that Womack don't feel comin che in feasterville Allah you will find a con, whatever you spend in the way of Allah will be given to you in full meaning Allah subhanaw taala will compensate you in full in Surah Saba is 39, WOMMA and factum, and Shagun for Who are you careful whenever you spend in his cause, Allah will compensate it. Allah subhanaw taala will save you from painful punishment in sort of soft I attend. We learned this sooner the tilava is 17 we learn in tocreate Allah Cardon Hassan EULA, if hola como
threadlocal, Allah will forgive you, if you lend Allah a beautiful loan. We also learned in Hadith that when a person gives charity in the way of Allah, then their sins are extinguished, just as water extinguishes fire.
So if you're an authority, he was such that whenever he would see a beggar at his door, he would be delighted, he would rejoice, and he would say Welcome, welcome. And he would say, that this man has come to wash away my sins Alhamdulillah I have someone coming to me, I can give them and this way my sins will be washed away. They say if you ever thought he would be happy when someone asked him to, to, to to give Subhanallah in Surah hadith is seven, we learned that for those people who spend in the way of Allah, they will have a different kabhi a great reward. In Hadith we learn that when a person spends in the way of Allah, then the heat of the graves is extinguished for its people.
Meaning you are preparing coolness for yourself in your grave. When you spend in the way of Allah.
On the Day of Judgment also, you will have the coolness of the shade of Allah, if you spend in his cause with sincerity, because we don't in Hadith that calmly envy Lily sadaqa tea, that each person will be under the shade of his own charity on the day of judgment. And another Hadith we learned that seven types of people will be under the shade of Allah's throne, all of them is the person who spends with his right hand in such a way that his left hand does not even know. So, you know, sometimes you give sadaqa together as a family, you and your spouse or you and your siblings, you with your parents, or you with your friends, you know, together you spend, you know the people
around you know what you're giving, but also try to give some sadaqa secretly, so the people who are closest to you don't even find out because that will bring you the shade of Allah's throne on the Day of Judgment. We also learned those who spent in the way of Allah into earlier Imran i 134. We learn that
133 and 134 that rush to
to Allah's forgiveness, and Jana, to Paradise, which has been prepared for those who have Taqwa Who are these people Alladhina une fille Coronavirus, sonra you will have their qualities is that they spend in all conditions in ease and in hardship. So whether we have a little or we have a lot, let's spend in the way of Allah. In a hadith we learn the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Dr Lu Binah. Come webinar, Natty hijab and create a screen between yourself and the fire of hell. Even if you can do that with a piece of a date fruit, any you cannot afford to give one whole date. You can give half of it do that. Do that. We learned that, you know a woman came begging and I showed her
the law more on her gave her three dates. And the woman gave one date each to each of her daughters and she had one date for herself. And when she was about to eat it, her daughters began looking at her. So she broke her date into two pieces. And she gave it to her daughters and she ate nothing herself. And I shall do a lot more and I was very touched by this. And she mentioned this to the prophets of Allah
who already said no, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know mentioned that, because of this, that woman will be saved from hellfire. So, if you can give even a little bit, give that we learned that the person who spends XO Jane feasable Allah a complete set in a complete pair in the way of Allah, then such a person will be called from all of the gates of paradise he can enter Paradise from any gate. And to give a complete set in what this primarily means is, for example, you give a male camel and a female camel, a complete pair, right because now, you're not just giving to animals, you're giving something you're giving something that would that will continue to grow and
increase right. So just like that, you can give a complete pair any a complete set of clothing, or for example, a complete set of furniture or complete set of you know, recording material for example, that will help support the cause of Allah see what is possible for you what opportunities you have. But this is such a noble deed that a person will get will be invited from all the gates of paradise on the Day of Judgment. Now how can we spend in the way of Allah, there is many different ways we can spend on ourselves. end If we spend for our tuition so that we can learn the deen of Allah. We pay for a subscription through which we can continue to learn the deen of Allah or we
spend on our family so they can learn the deen of Allah. This is in fact V. Sabine Allah. If you spend on your family, for their needs, their worldly needs, even your children, your grandchildren, your siblings, your relatives, your cousins, this is also feasible Allah, when you spend on those in need, then this is also feasible Allah. In a hadith we learned that once the companions were with the prophets of Allah who already have settlement, a man passed by, and that man appeared to be very strong, very able bodied, very active. So some people said that, you know, if only this person was in the way of Allah, any, he's just out and about he should be using his physical strength in the
way of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that if this man has come out in order to strive for his little children, he is in the way of Allah. If he has come out, to strive for his elderly parents, he is in the way of Allah, if He has come out to strive for himself, so that he does not beg than He is in the way of Allah. And if he has come out to show off and boast that he is in the way of shaitan. So spend on those who are dependent on you spend on their worldly needs, their religious needs, spend on your needs, your religious needs, and spend on the religious needs, the worldly needs of the people around you. And diversify your sadaqa try to spend on those who are
close and those who are far. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, no doubt this wealth is sweet and green, but blessed is the wealth of a Muslim from which he gives to the poor, the orphans and to the needy travelers, Allahu Akbar. So spend generously and we can support
you know, for example, you can spend on Hajj on camera for yourself, you can spend to help build a masjid, you can help to to you know, in a hadith we learned that there are seven things whose reward will continue to benefit a person even when the person ends up in his grave. These seven things are the knowledge which a person taught or a stream that a person causes to be built or you know, for example, when people need access to water, so you need to, you know, make streams or provide piping etc. so that water can be taken to different places. Thirdly,
the one who has a well dug, okay, fourthly, a person who plants a tree number five, having a masjid built building a masjid number six, giving someone a must have, okay, and number seven children who seek forgiveness for that person after he has passed away. So, there are so many ways in which we can, you know, spend so that we continue to benefit from the reward even when we are laying in our graves.
So we should develop the habit of giving spending in the way of Allah, from our income from the money that we earn from the money
Many that Allah subhanaw taala has given us and whatever privilege Allah subhanaw taala has given us, let us use that to benefit those around us.
