hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala nabina Muhammad Ali he was rbh Marina Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:14--> 00:00:17

My brothers, my sisters in Islam.

00:00:18--> 00:00:48

There was a great scholar of Islam by the name of Ivanovic. Dunya Rahim Allah, who used to say that in my life, I will never ever give a skier to anyone. That skier means to affirm the uprightness or righteousness of any human being. So he used to say when people used to ask him, would you give tusky about so and so do you think so? And so is a good person to get married to? You think so? And so is a good person to do business with.

00:00:50--> 00:00:59

We get asked that question all the time, don't we? Even a bit dunya used to say I will never ever give tasks to any single person. Why?

00:01:00--> 00:01:44

Because he said, for what I have read from the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the heart of a believer. You see, at the heart of a believer is very fragile. The heart of a believer is very weak. masumi insano in Delhi in a city called boo in La Jolla tala boo. Mankind was not called man except because he forgets a lot. And the heart was not called the heart except that he moves around, twists around turns. Today it's positive tomorrow negative today like something tomorrow he hates it. today. He thinks something is good tomorrow things that same thing as bad. Today he goes to sleep as a Muslim tomorrow he wakes up as a as a disbeliever equity. This is the

00:01:44--> 00:02:27

heart of people. And it's for this reason why it would have been done yes is to say I will never give the security anyone alive. I will only give this care to those who are dead. But brothers and sister Islam, such as the heart of a person today, we have hearts that are flimsy and fragile. We have hearts that turn and twist we have hearts that need a lot of stability and Sabbath. And it is precisely for this reason. Why is it my brothers and sisters Islam what Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us the month of Ramadan, the month where the hearts have a madrasa and a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala. You see, there are certain things that destroy the heart. From those things destroy the

00:02:27--> 00:03:16

heart, indeed, is luxury and wealth. The fact that there's so much dunya around this makes the hearts very, very hard. And the funny thing about being completely oblivious of the author of being engulfed by the dunya is that our hearts become so hard we tend not to even feel Allah azza wa jal In fact, in the authentic in the in the verse in the Quran, in Surah Hadith Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, what does he say? He said lm yet niniola de la mano untuck Shaku De La Hoya woman as a man as elemental Huck has the time not come for those who believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala for the hearts to tremble when Allah has words I mentioned while I a conical Latina o takita, bobbin

00:03:16--> 00:04:03

Pablo and do not be like those people who are given the book beforehand for tadalis Ahmed, and so a long duration of time before he passed away before they actually read the book, what Casio mean who faster code and many of them became wrongdoers? It is for this reason why Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us the month of Ramadan, those people their hearts became hard because they forgot to read the book of Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us the month of Ramadan in order to fix the hearts that have become hard over the years. My brothers and sister Islam how many brothers that use of have use of La Soto Salaam had 11 brothers and he was a 12th one. Yeah 11 Brothers, he was the 12th

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

one. Do you not see how he saw in his dream that the sun and the moon and 11 stars were prostrating to him. He had 11 brothers in the same way what we have 11 months but use of was a special one. He was the one when when you when he went missing, you have to blast his eyesight in the same way what the what we lose Ramadan, we destroy our relationship with Allah we destroy our hearts. We lose something in our heart in our in ourselves that can never be replaced with anything else. But by finding use of again. So if what you will hamdulillah Glory be to Allah that He has given us the use of of the months of the year. And that is Ramadan, the most beautiful time in this dunya it is the

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

time of mercy. It is a time of victory. The greatest battles of Islam were fought in the month of Ramadan, the Battle of butter for on the 17th of Ramadan. The battle

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

First hamaca the battle over under knows the Battle of the battle over the Mongols and Tatas where the Muslims destroyed them in Haiti was all fought in the month of Ramadan, the month of victory over shaitan when shaytan is chained up the month of victory over ourselves equity the greatest enemy of all the person in the mirror. My brothers and sisters in Islam this month is so special that the scholars Islam used to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala scholars from the Sahaba and the scholars from the self used to ask Allah azza wa jal for six months before Ramadan to bring them to Ramadan. And after Ramadan. by six months they used to ask Allah subhana wa Taala to accept the Riba

00:05:46--> 00:06:32

that they had made in that month. The month of Ramadan was so special if what my brothers and sisters in Islam that the Sahaba used to wait on that month and do an actor a burger, the seller for solid to do X or a bad that they never used to do in any other month. It was reported that our chef Rahim Allah, He used to read the Quran 60 times in Ramadan 60 times on the day, he would read it, all of it, and at night, he would read it all again, but in Salah. So if 4060 times you recite the whole of the Quran. And lest you think it's not possible, this is some sort of exaggeration. I still remember reading in our books about a chef, a scholar by the name of Bukhara Jose, who passed away

00:06:32--> 00:07:13

many years ago when he mentions that I read the Hadith where it was reported that a man needs to recite the whole Quran at night completely and I said to my chef, which is Mohammed Al ammunitions nithi. I said chef is probably an exaggeration. Someone's exaggerating he said why not test it? So they decided to test whether it's possible to recite the whole Quran in the month of Ramadan. So they started right after Isha right now, like this time now they said Allah what Fatiha then they started with Surah Al Baqarah. He said, I swear by Allah, this is in Medina. He said, I swear by Allah, the other of fudger was going off, and the chef was reciting louder apenas Maliki naskila

00:07:13--> 00:07:46

hyenas. My brothers and sisters in Islam, it is possible to recite the whole Quran at night. And it is for this reason why the scholars of the past used to excel in the month of Ramadan. The month of the Quran it was reported that a chef Rahim Allah was reported Imam Malik Rahim Allah in the days outside of Ramadan, he would have the books of fifth open. But in the days of Ramadan, he would close the books of fifth and you'd open the books of the Quran. My brothers and sister Islam, it is the month of remembering those people that are the most

00:07:47--> 00:08:34

insignificant, or those who are considered insignificant in society. Those people who are the lowest in the rungs of the ladder of society, they are the poor and the prisoners. So Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to remember the poorest of people as a result, he said, and he ordered us to stay away from eating, because one of the best ways to understand what they go through is to go through what they go through every day. Do you know how many people today, today or even today, right now like like this day of 29th of may 2014. How many people are actually chronically hungry? chronic hunger means no food to eat, except one meal a day, sometimes less than one meal. Your gastric

00:08:34--> 00:09:18

emptying time, the amount of time that your food stays in your tummy is four hours, there is no less than 1.2 billion human beings that are chronically hungry today. This is a report that was published by the World Health Organization Yes, with the 1.2 billion people 1.2 billion people. And if you were to look at how many of them are Muslim countries, approximately 760 million. Are you saying Allah is not going to ask us about this? Are you saying that this is not something we need to feel empathy for? Absolutely. It is. For this reason why loves will ordain us to stay away from food, so that we don't forget these people and what they go through every single day. The equity, what is

00:09:18--> 00:09:58

worse than being hungry is the loss of dignity. The fact that a person a father has to lower lower himself in front of his family because he cannot provide food for them. And because a mother feels treacherous about betraying the trust of our children that she has no breast milk to provide for her children. Yes, Swati. Allah azza wa jal does not want us to forget these people. So he's given us the month of Ramadan to stay away from food and another one more group of people and they are the ones who society totally forgets because they are not spoken about because they are not in front of our eyes and no one speaks about them. Who are these people? They are the prisoners, the prisoners

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

that are languishing in prisons.

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

Who will not have access to their families the families will not see them for years on end. It is for this reason why Muslim tells us to stay away from our wives and wives to stay away from the husbands in the month of Ramadan totally. Even by ethica as well of the last 10 days is what the all of this so that we might remember the prisoners we have to stay away from their families for years or and our brothers and sister Islam month Ramadan is a month remembering those people who are lesser than us. It is a month of humbling ourselves. It is a month of knowing that truly Allah subhanho wa Taala is only remembered when we remember the luxuries the blessings that Allah has

00:10:41--> 00:11:28

given us. When you forget the luxuries and the blessings Allah has given us that is when you forget Allah subhanho wa Taala. Today for the first time in the world, do you know how many Muslims there are in the history of mankind? There has not been that many number of Muslims that call themselves Muslims. At least we don't know whether they truly are or not 1.5 billion people. One in five is a Muslim. But do you know that one in four is an atheist today? One in four is an atheist today. One in 420 4.6% as the United Nations counted the number of people worldwide who do not attribute themselves to any religion at all. One in four people are an atheist today more than Muslims. You

00:11:28--> 00:12:07

know why? Because Muslims are not doing their jobs. The reason why they're atheists equity is because the dunya has engulfed them. When you go to the shop, you find 20 different types of bread to buy. And 16 different types of drink that you can drink. You don't need a lot anymore in your life. You can pick up the phone and the pizza delivered. You can go on the line you can go online, you can buy cotton from Egypt, you can buy China from China, you equity it's amazing the life that will lead today we have no need for God. It is for this reason why my brothers and sister Islam Allah gave us Ramadan. So we remember God, because we're lucky How easy is it for us to forget that

00:12:07--> 00:12:21

we are so close to poverty so close to being hungry and going hungry? And it is for this reason why Laszlo just gives us Ramadan, so that we stay away from food and we stay away from our families, my brothers and sister Islam.

00:12:22--> 00:13:08

The month of Ramadan is the month of tremendous sadaqa and charity. The month are tremendous of the charity. There are very few months in the calendar where I believe His heart is as soft and attached to Allah azza wa jal and to the offer as much as Ramadan. It is for this reason why Allah subhanho wa Taala ordains that we choose the afro over this dunya for this Allah subhanho wa Taala ordained Ramadan to be a month of Southern charity as well. Karna Rasulullah masala Jota NASA said even a bass verily the prophecy needs to be the most charitable a people are gonna do my akuna Ramadan Hina your power jabril for you there is a whole Quran when gibreel used to meet him and to teach and used

00:13:08--> 00:13:40

to teach them the Quran. Yes, watever brothers is Islam. Do you know the reason why the Prophet was charitable in Ramadan? The Hadith explains it. The Hadith says Wakanda ajwa Duma yaku Ramadan Hina yokocho Jabri for you That is all for this part is usually forgotten by the people who explain this hadith. Yes, but the one of the reasons why the solar system was so charitable a month Ramadan is because he was revising the Quran.

00:13:42--> 00:13:49

If you forget the Quran, this is a great masiva if you remember the Quran, it is hidayah nor for you in this dunya and

00:13:51--> 00:14:32

you equity our teacher may Allah have mercy upon him. She actually at half an hour live in Medina used to say do not come to my class except that you give some soda do not come to my class except that he gives up soda. Why? Because equity This is the body of the prophets SLM, he used to give saw the converse of Ramadan because he should revise the kurama jabril he didn't want to forget the Quran. So there's a reason why today we gain knowledge or we learn the Hadith or ayat, or we memorize parts of the Quran that we forget it you know why? Because you don't don't earn a lot of good pleasure by giving sadaqa Yeah, what if this was one of the ways by which you keep knowledge

00:14:33--> 00:15:00

firm upon you. Am says there are nine steps to keeping knowledge firm in your heart. Number one is learning number two is practicing number three is teaching. Number four is sadhaka. Number four is sadhaka y, because y or z the law will levena da Buddha, Allah increases the Buddha of those people who have already choosen who have already chosen the Buddha. If you choose the Buddha, Allah will give you

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

More houda if your practice the whole world has already come to you, that Allah will give you more Hooda is a reason why we learn so many things. It doesn't stay in the hearts. That's because we don't give sadaqa charity to keep the Hooda in our hearts. My brothers and sister Islam, the akula Himalayan his books, he says in one of his books, he says I used to see scheffel Islam even Tamia Rahim Allah giving sadaqa before every single Salah at the time of coming out as the coming out come out of his house, and he would give sadaqa every single time. So I asked my chef, a chef, why do you give sadaqa every time you come out to pray, why did you saw the cup? He said Allah subhanho wa

00:15:43--> 00:16:01

Taala mentions 27 times or after a masala or two soccer, prayer and soccer together. prayer and soda put together 27 times and also Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran.

00:16:03--> 00:16:40

Allah Dena Amano is an RJ Tamara sola for Kadima, Albania de nada con sadhaka are you who believe when you go to seek the counsel of the professor seller on an affair on a matter then give money give sadaqa before you go see him. So if we are meant to give sadaqa and money before we go see Rasulullah sallallahu then to meet Allah in our Salah it is more worthy that we give sadaqa it is more worthy that we give South Africa What a beautiful understanding if you take your hammer head here for tea ever since I understood that

00:16:41--> 00:17:23

every single time I come for Salah I used to give sadaqa and this is one of the beautiful things I should love about Arab countries. When I used to live in Medina is there were poor people everywhere. There was a poor person cleaning the streets someone poor next to the road was hungry or thirsty. There's so many people who can help you equity and before you think my brothers and sister Islam before you think that your Salah in Ramadan which you are going to pray more carefully and even more Salawat in Ramadan is going to be accepted. How do you accept all of these therapies and all your karma labels and all your prayer in the massage in Ramadan to be accepted without sadhaka?

00:17:24--> 00:17:43

It's not possible, not possibly one. Why is he the lone Latina tada Buddha. So you want to increase in guidance. Take the guidance of Allah azza wa jal and give certified the month Ramadan and remember that your sadhaka will ensure that your Salah is accepted by Allah subhana wa Taala my brothers and sisters Islam

00:17:45--> 00:17:47

sadaqa comes from the word said

00:17:48--> 00:17:51

why because sada is a sign of

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

a sign of truthfulness of your love for your brother.

00:17:56--> 00:18:01

Also sadaqa is a sign of your love for the offeror rather than this dunya

00:18:02--> 00:18:08

because you are acidic, you are solid in your humble othera min. hobbit dunya

00:18:09--> 00:18:15

and that is why sada has called sadhaka equity in Surah munaf

00:18:16--> 00:18:22

in verse number 10 of Surah munafo, Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the verse Do you know what that verses

00:18:23--> 00:19:13

you are? You are levena Armin? So Allah azza wa jal calls out to to those who believe so Allah subhanaw taala Surah munafo tells us about the munafo those who deceive you. In verse number 10. He refers to the believers and he says we're unfaithful Mimosa Poom Min cobbly hada kumal mount for your Kula Robbie, Lola Horton Isla Jolene Cory for our sub duck akumina Sol hain. What does he say? He says, Oh Allah, Allah, Allah says, All human beings, all Muslims or people give in charity. Before the day comes when you pass away when you die. Yeah, before the day comes when you die.

00:19:14--> 00:19:39

And at the moment of death, you will call out to Allah and say, Oh Allah give me five more minutes. Give me a few more minutes. Just hold on or Angel of Death. Let me go and do something do what so that I may go back to this life. And the first thing I will do not pray. First thing I will do is not not go for Hajj. First thing I will do is not say Salaam to my children. The first thing I will do is give sadaqa

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

This is why I have put in authentic narration the prophet SAW Selim. It's reported that on the Day of Judgment, no one from from us no one from the human beings and jinn. Except that we will come to Allah on our own one by one and we will speak to Allah without any

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

interpreter at the moment of speaking to allow without any interpreter. The Hadith states this hadith you know the Hadith, but people only mentioned the last part of the Hadith mode the first part the last part of the Hadith says save yourselves from the fire even if it'd be with half a day you know the Hadith Have you heard of that? Right? It's there everywhere everyone puts it on a poster say please give us for this mustard that must be that this orphan that often right? Well, let me tell you the full Hadees the full Hadith is this. There is no one here except that you will speak to allow one by one without any interpreter. You will see a lot above you to your right will be

00:20:41--> 00:21:19

jahannam to your left will be Johanna in front of you will be the ciroc over Johanna. So save yourself from the fire even if it'd be with half a date. It is for this reason why some of the scholars Islam they used to say to their wives only Omar Omar This is Obama one of the scholars Islam used to say to Omar Omar, his wife, Omar, give a lot of sadaqa and prepare yourself for the journey over the bridge. The bridge is very long. The bridge over jahannam is very long equity. My brother's sister Islam.

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

I summarized for you so that you go back with some true benefits from this lecture 20 benefits of sadaqa that I I can gather from the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu and from the verses of the Quran, let me tell you what these 20 benefits benefits are. So that being the law, it serves as a reminder and something to

00:21:43--> 00:21:51

inshallah to Allah motivate us to be of those people who are from the most generous of people in this month of Ramadan in the lab.

00:21:52--> 00:22:08

First is that when you give sadaqa Allah subhana wa Taala will increase your sadaqa your reward 10 to 700 times it is the highest multiplication you can find your equity when you have

00:22:09--> 00:22:50

an investment in a stock in a stock market, for example, and then it suddenly goes up very high, right? suddenly something happens bam, it goes up very high. And then Mashallah you make 10 times 20 times the money that you originally invested. Do you know, you'll be first of all, you'll be happy. But then secondly, you'll be very sad. It's amazing people who invest in the stock market they're always happy and sad. Okay, why are they happy and sad? First, they have to because of money went down sad because they didn't invest even more. They wish they invested even more. So when you see on the Day of Judgment, your money has gone up between 10 to 700 times that one small dollar now is 10

00:22:50--> 00:23:28

to 700 times you will wish you invested a lot more equity. And this is the first benefit of sadhaka number two the second benefit sidecar is that when you help people in this dunya you become from the merciful and Allah subhanho wa Taala and the prophets the prophets are seldom said or raw. Hey, Mona Humala, Abraham Oman fill out your hamaca man for sama, those who are merciful, Allah will have mercy of them have mercy, mercy on the people of this earth, the one above the heavens will have mercy on you. So by giving sadaqa you become from the merciful that Allah the Most Merciful will have mercy on you.

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

Number three through sadaqa

00:23:32--> 00:24:17

you give a sadhaka a charity for every single joint in your body. There is no single joint in your body except that you have sadaqa due from you every single day. In the authentic hadith. It is reported that two angels come down and say Oh Allah, the moon Falcon holla and the other one says Oh Allah it moves second talofa first one says Oh Allah give the one who gives you a cause more money. The other one says Oh Allah give the one who withholds from your cause destruction is wealth. Do you know guys, brothers and sisters in Islam? The Islamic strategy for getting rich is very different to the non Islamic strategy for getting rich. What is the non Islamic strategy for getting for getting

00:24:17--> 00:24:21

rich, this is what the non Islamic strategies for getting rich let me summarize it for you.

00:24:22--> 00:24:42

Don't get married, get married very late after you've made a lot of money. Spread out your investments, some in real estate some in the stocks. Make sure you diversify your investments. Okay, don't go for HUD right now. Because it's $10,000 go later on. Once you

00:24:43--> 00:25:00

look these children are laughing for good don't go for don't go for hedge right now go for hedge later on. Because it is very expensive. You're gonna waste your money right now go invested. The earlier you invest your money, the more you'll make, right. This is of course and by the way, don't

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

give too much out charity. If you give too much charity you won't make enough money. Right? This is the typical investment advice for getting rich in this dunya is that not so? But look at the Islamic advice. Let me tell you something that is so funny because when you read the Hadith or similar sort of how to get rich, it's the exact opposite. In the authentic hadith in Bukhari, the prophet said whoever wants to get rich they didn't get married. What the Getting married is an expensive exercise, but the Prophet system said whoever wants to get rich get married. There's a reason why we are so poor This is only one wife guys.

00:25:38--> 00:25:39

Disclaimer disclaimer

00:25:42--> 00:25:52

it's true Subhanallah if you want to get rich get married this hydro pseudo setup not authentic hadith which is in Muslim Mohammed. The Prophet is some said whoever wants to get rich let him do Hajj.

00:25:54--> 00:25:54

What

00:25:56--> 00:26:11

I thought how just $10,000 How can you get rich but Subhanallah every time you do it unless promise more money back. Amazing. Isn't it? Amazing. Also, in the authentic hadith the prophet SAW Some said said

00:26:12--> 00:26:22

he said whoever give sadaqa Allah will return it many fold. Yeah, whoever gives other color is Baraka in his wealth. Whoever gives sadaqa Allah makes him more wealthier

00:26:24--> 00:27:08

and more mana pasa modern Sadat authentic hadith in Bukhari wealth is never decreased by sadaqa. So can you see how it's the exact opposite Islamic strategy for getting rich is the total opposite of what we think today is a strategy of Getting Rich equity. So my brothers and sister Islam remember this, that the third benefit of South Africa is that you're giving a charity on behalf of every single joint in your body, which is do from you every single day. Number four Sadiq Khan giving charity is a sign of your love for your brother. And you will not enter Jannah until you believe and you will never believe until you love each other for the sake of Allah. That Hadith is authentic.

00:27:08--> 00:27:52

It's in Bukhari. So how can you love each other? Well, by giving gifts to each other and giving sadaqa to the poor, you end up loving the poor and they end up loving you. And so as a result sort of as a means of loving your brother which will lead to Eman which will lead to entry into gentlemen insha Allah, point number five, by giving sadaqa you are helping your brother and when you are helping your brother the prophets. Some said Allah says help is a short for you. He said an authentic hadith in Bukhari, in Allah Hafiz unilab McConnell Abdo Fiona very Amazonian helps his brother as long as a Muslim as long as the Muslim helps his brother you want allows help you want to

00:27:52--> 00:28:34

let him fix your problems. That gives up is the surest way to know Allah will answer your doctor and will help you in your cause. Number six, by giving in charity, you are protecting and preserving Allah as dean and helping Allah when you do that, then you are assured of Allah's help as well. Yeah, you allatheena Armando entonces Allah Hi, Rocco. If you help Allah will help you back. So how are you helping Allah you helping his Deen through South Africa. So as a result, Allah will help you back in this dunya by protecting you in the Africa by saving you from the punishment of the grave and from the Kaaba and Johanna. Number seven.

00:28:35--> 00:29:21

By giving him sadaqa you're attaining a higher position of righteousness, you are attaining the status of older which is the highest level of SSR Why is that? Because money is something we love. And so we cannot attain the highest level of righteousness until we give that which we love. It is for this reason why law soldier says in the Quran lantana bibra hatherton fukami mata bone many you can't be from the highest people. You can't be from the US hubballi Amina sahbihi wa macabre been you can't be from the people from us humble for those until it gives that which you this that which you love the most. Give away that which you love the most which is Allah subhanho wa Taala which is

00:29:21--> 00:29:33

this dunya equity this dunya is called dunya becomes comes from the word Donna which means to come close. So no doubt we love it a lot. But the real test is to give it away for the cause of lasagna and to not be attached to it.

00:29:35--> 00:29:47

At number eight, point number eight sadaqa extinguishes the anger of Allah, just like water extinguishes the fire authentic hadith in Tehran.

00:29:48--> 00:29:58

Is there anyone here who has a guarantee that Allah is not angry with him? anyone here who has showed that he is not doing something or the other to make Allah angry with him?

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

No one has that guarantee. It is for this reason why supply is so important.

00:30:05--> 00:30:37

So we extinguish, extinguish the anger of Allah azza wa jal about us number nine sadaqa defends us on the grave, and sadaqa will defend us on the Day of Judgment. In the authentic hadith the Prophet says some said South Africa will come in the form of a night in the form of a soldier and Mike will defend you in your grave, from all the punishment of Allah in your grave. And authentic hadith also says that South Africa will come in the form of a witness on the Day of Judgment, who will witness on the Day of Judgment for you.

00:30:38--> 00:31:05

Number 10, by the amount of saga is the amount of your shade of the Day of Judgment. Yes, what he will lie he I got out in the airport today, and I was birth. I'm actually very fair, very fair human being, but today I was birth because the Qatari Sun is so hot. La ilaha illa Allah subhanaw taala they say it was what 49 degrees today? I am sure it was probably 59 degrees.

00:31:07--> 00:31:11

It is so hot in Qatar, isn't it? Amazing? Sorry, no.

00:31:16--> 00:31:26

Allah, Allah Allah. That's an exaggeration. So Allah was done. Yes, Allah imagine 50,000 years of study in the heat of the sun.

00:31:27--> 00:32:10

And the sun, as the Prophet, some explained will be one meal. The scholar said meal can mean two things one mile, or one comb length, which is a meal in Arabic, which is 10 centimeters. Only Allah knows how far the sun will be above our heads. On that day 40 we will be split will be raised up naked, and uncircumcised barefooted. Can you imagine standing in that heat? We want shade on that day of what our shade will be the amount of South Africa we have given this alma oficially sada kata Yama, Yama, verily a person will be in the in the amount of shade on the Day of Judgment authentic hadith in Bukhari equity, point number 11

00:32:11--> 00:32:37

sadaqa through sadaqa, you protect your progeny, and your children from harm. When you give sadaqa you're actually protecting your children. When I give sadaqa I'm protecting my children. How is that? Because the true protection is a protection from Allah azza wa jal and Allah subhanho wa Taala will not protect our children. When we are not there or we are dead,

00:32:38--> 00:33:02

except by us becoming righteous. When we become righteous, Allah will be kind and merciful to our children when we are bad. Allah will let our children go astray. What is the proof of that? The proof of that is in Surah, Kahf. The third person that Heather The third thing they said that they would Moosa, what was it? Alisha Salah. What was the third thing he did with Musa and his

00:33:04--> 00:33:18

third thing was that there was a wall that was about to fall. And so Heather fix the wall, right? And it's the salami fix the wall, and he didn't take money for it. So musasa salam asked him, Why didn't you get some cash for it?

00:33:20--> 00:33:21

What did you do for free?

00:33:22--> 00:34:15

So equity for the last is patience at that point, as you know, and he told him why the reason why is Amal je de fer karnali Hola, mania te maney Phil Medina, WA Kanata who consola whom as for the wall that was about to fall, it used to belong to two orphans in the village, and underneath the wall was their treasure. waka abou masala Ha. And the father was a righteous man for arada rabuka. A Beluga should the Hamas Allah wanted when they become puberty and adults, West Africans Omar Mata Mira and then Allah will bring the pressure out as a mercy from Allah for them. So they have money. Even a boss said that the fear of this verse, He said what he said Allah wanted good for the orphans,

00:34:15--> 00:34:17

because of the righteousness of the Father.

00:34:18--> 00:34:25

Allah Allah. So when you are good to human beings, when you are good to other Muslims,

00:34:26--> 00:34:59

Allah will consider your righteous that will protect your children. You want to protect your children. What do we do today? When we try to protect our children? We say oh, I have to build a second home for them a third home then it becomes a fourth one. And then they start having babies and then you have to now build for their grandchildren. Don't do that. Don't do that because your children will never treat your wealth like the treat their wealth. Mark my words what I'm telling you. my iPad is scratched and never charged. My son's iPad is beautiful.

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

no scratches, and it's always charged. Want to ask you so use of why is your iPad better than my one?

00:35:07--> 00:35:18

Is that I don't know. Yes you do know because you care for your wealth more than you care for my wealth. Yes What he when he shuts the door of my car

00:35:19--> 00:36:02

usage of Oops, sorry that. I said what do you mean sorry that if it was your car would you smash the door that hard? You have 40 they will never treat your wealth as a treat there was Mark my words. Do not be of those people. So I'm going to leave this for my children. Are you crazy? You want to leave them for your children, give them a good education, marry them to good people. And then let them fend for themselves leave the small amounts of money let them fend for themselves. Rest give it to Allah. Give it to Allah. Will Otto homie Marilla the otaku give to charity from the wealth of Allah that has given you Don't be foolish. Don't leave that much wealth for your children. They don't need

00:36:02--> 00:36:29

it. How many of us have the Indian Pakistani subcontinent brothers and sisters over here in the audience, know people who have yet to divide up the inheritance of the dead relatives back home? They have yet to do it. Have you all divided up their inheritance? They have so much inheritance still do, but you don't care for it. Because you live in Qatar, you want to build a home in Malaysia. You want to build a home in Qatar, you don't want to build a home back in Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh.

00:36:31--> 00:36:50

You don't. So you don't care much for the wealth that your grandparents left back in the village. You don't even divided up just to show you how useless wealth is leaving a just for the kids. rather leave it for Allah. Leave Allah give it to a lost cause. It will be for you on the Day of Judgment.

00:36:51--> 00:36:56

I forgotten count. But I think it's number 12 now is that right? Number 12.

00:36:57--> 00:37:06

The authentic hadith in Mr. demanded the prophets are seldom said the best of you are the ones who are the most beneficial to humanity.

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

The best of you are the ones who are the most beneficial to humanity. When you give sadaqa you become beneficial to humanity. It is for this reason why the scholars Islam, as mentioned by Allah says much more. The LMR Islam have complete its mark, that the rich worshipper of Allah is better than the poor worship of Allah. Why? Because the rich worshipper of Allah, He gives other time and he gives money away, whereas the poor worshiping Allah cannot benefit anyone but himself. Number 13.

00:37:43--> 00:38:19

When you give sadaqa you are actually leaving the money for yourself in the future. When you give sadaqa you're leaving it for the future. Equity, Why leave money for yourself in the future? And how do you do so? In the authentic narration It is reported that the Prophet says seller came to see Ayesha and I showed the owner had slaughtered a sheep and she gave some of the sheep away for sada she gave three fourths of the sheep away and kept only one leg. So the Prophet came and said, How much of the sheep have you have we got left? He said oh, we only have one leg left.

00:38:20--> 00:38:24

So Rasulullah sysm said no your Ayesha we have three fourths of the sheep left.

00:38:25--> 00:39:09

He said we have three fourths of the sheep left. And this is why the Prophet says somebody is to say, Are you cool? Malinois de la Molly, who was there amongst you who loves the wealth of his inheritors more than his own wealth is Surya rasulillah there is no one except the loves his own wealth and the wealth of his inheritors. He said that which you given the causal allies, your wealth that you leave behind is the wealth of inheritors. Yes, what he don't wait for the last day to give you a sadhaka give it away. You know, a few days ago, a few months ago, I was in Moscow. I went to see Mr. Raja he, which was just recently completed, one of the largest Masjid in Makkah, or the

00:39:09--> 00:39:28

largest Masjid in Makkah, right after the heart of the harem of Makkah. Roger, Roger, he had over 13 point 1 billion US dollars in wealth. Do you know this man doesn't even have $13 to his name. Now. He has distributed as well the way he wants to die.

00:39:30--> 00:39:32

being raised up with the Masaki

00:39:33--> 00:39:51

13.1, if he has the courage to give $13.1 billion away whilst he's still alive before he dies. Why do you not have the courage to give your house away your car away? Why are you so

00:39:52--> 00:40:00

miserly with your wealth? Why? If he has the courage to give far he is far more wealthy than all of us. Put together.

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

He had the courage to give all of that away. Why do we not have the courage to give our wealth away? If one

00:40:06--> 00:40:07

something's wrong,

00:40:08--> 00:40:23

something's wrong. And what's wrong is the heart and that's what was given us Ramadan fix this thing. Fix this thing. This is deceiving us, fix the hearts it is deceiving us. Equity point number, whatever 14.

00:40:24--> 00:40:27

South Africa is a sign of our code.

00:40:29--> 00:40:44

Allah who says he says tawakkol is half of Eman. And he also said it is half of Islam, what call is half of Islam, half of Islam because the word call means having good thoughts about Allah.

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

And how do you attend to a call, you attain it by relying on Allah not on what is in your pocket. And that is why the scholars Islam said, he said our call is to think that that which is what Allah is more certain than than than the money in your own pocket.

00:41:02--> 00:41:18

So you are certain that Allah will help you, you're certain Allah will pay for it, rather than you will pay for it with the money in your pocket. This is true Tavakoli one. And to attain tawakkol completeness of your Eman, perfection of your Islam, it can only happen

00:41:19--> 00:41:27

through giving sadaqa number 15. By giving sadaqa not only do you get the reward of sadaqa,

00:41:29--> 00:41:55

you actually get the reward of whatever the person uses the money for. So imagine the person uses the money to buy books through which he helps new Muslims except these non Muslims accept Islam. That means not only do you get the reward of sadaqa, but you get the reward of someone accepting Islam. Imagine through that sadaqa that person has bought food through which he's breaking is fast. So not only do you get the reward of sadhaka, you get the reward of the person's past as well.

00:41:57--> 00:42:51

Amazing, isn't it? And if that person ends up using it, in something that gives recurring reward, then you get reward for that recurring until the day of judgment. Number 16 sadaqa is the truest meaning of jharia Saga is the jharia Saga pattern jharia we say that right? We say saga Patanjali Asada Patanjali are the truest setup ajaya is sada itself. Because when you give sadaqa money charity away, then that is usually used in something that benefits human beings for many, many years, or benefits, knowledge of benefits and infrastructure projects. And so as a result, it is a true meaning of god it will benefit you even in your graves and for many years to come. Number 17

00:42:51--> 00:42:52

and authentic hadith

00:42:54--> 00:42:58

and authentic hadith number 17. Let's carry on number 17.

00:43:00--> 00:43:01

The profitsystem said

00:43:02--> 00:43:19

that the scholars Islam said that sadaqa is more rewarding than all other nefarious deeds other than gaining knowledge. South Africa is more beneficial than all other knuffle deeds other than gaining knowledge. The reason why is because it benefits others not only yourself.

00:43:20--> 00:43:59

Number 18 the only reason they said gaining knowledge is more beneficial saga is because knowledge tells you the benefits of the personal data doesn't tell you the benefit knowledge. And so that which points to something is better than the one that which points to something is better than that. That's why the scholars say the scholars are better than Mujahideen. Why? Because the scholars tells the Mujahideen to do jihad the Jihad tells the scholars to seek knowledge correct. So as a result, Allah better than Mujahideen number 18. Allah subhanho wa Taala causes charity to grow until even a small date becomes like mountain or heard on the day of judgment in reward the Prophet Some said

00:43:59--> 00:44:14

authentic hadith into Bharani and mustard development. Allah subhanho wa Taala takes a single date that you give in South Africa. And we nurture it nurture it grows, it grows, it grows it until you come up with a day of judgment one single date will be like the mountain hood

00:44:15--> 00:44:23

in rewards Padilla number 19 by giving sadaqa you become from the poor people

00:44:24--> 00:44:59

by giving sadaqa you become from the people who are eligible to be raised with the poor on the day of judgment in the authentic hadith into Bharani. The professor Sallam said the rich people will be the lowest human beings on the Day of Judgment lowest of the low, lowest trash on the Day of Judgment rich, the richer You are the lowest trash you'll be on the Day of Judgment, except for the ones who gave sadaqa authentic Ronnie. So perhaps you're thinking Oh, it's okay, I'm just got a small job. I get 10,000 dinars results. I'm not I'm not rich. Are you

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

joking. You must be joking.

00:45:03--> 00:45:12

Do you have a bank account? Okay, let me ask this question other than the children who don't have bank accounts, who in this audience does not have a bank account?

00:45:15--> 00:45:22

Anyone know everyone has a bank account. If you have a bank account you already rich because only 13% of the world population has a bank account.

00:45:24--> 00:45:29

Correct? You already rich? You already from the top 13%.

00:45:31--> 00:45:36

So don't fool yourself. Yes, honey, my brothers and sisters.

00:45:37--> 00:45:51

We are in trouble unless we give sadaqa otherwise we'll be trampled on the day of judgment will be the lowest on the Day of Judgment. And yes, Allah equity. There is a statement of hustle and bustle. You have to tell you.

00:45:52--> 00:46:12

hustle and bustle he was asked this question. Oh, well, why don't you want to be rich? Okay, why don't you want to be rich? So I'll hustle bursary said if the money that I earn is haram, then fear the fire, fear jahannam. And if the money is Hello that I'm earning that fear the question

00:46:13--> 00:46:16

fear the questioning on the Day of Judgment.

00:46:18--> 00:46:50

questioning if one is very severe, the scholars the Hadith scholars commented on the Hadith Rasulullah says of the says that there that the poor will enter Jannah by 500 years before the rich. You know the Hadith that says that they commented on the Hadith and said the reason why is because of the severe questioning. So maracas alone man in dari, then you'll be asked about the nine every single Ryall will be asked about every single real What did you do with that real? Why?

00:46:51--> 00:46:58

What gave you the right to do that? Every single one. So matusadona nine.

00:46:59--> 00:47:06

If we did one atoms of goodwill we'll see at what atoms awake we'll see it that's why fear the questioning

00:47:07--> 00:47:14

if your money is halal, which I hope it is all which fear the question is one number

00:47:15--> 00:47:18

20 I guess is that right? Number 20.

00:47:20--> 00:47:21

The most important of all,

00:47:22--> 00:47:23

to give sadaqa

00:47:25--> 00:47:33

is to follow the tsunami ssls. If you love Mohammed Salah, you'll be like him. He was the most giving in Ramadan.

00:47:35--> 00:47:41

So we must be like him equity in one generation. Just to give you an example how much he gave.

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

A man came to his tribe. Yeah. And he said yeah, Tony Jaco me.

00:47:48--> 00:47:56

He said Jacobi Oh my people, my people are slim or a slim or accept Islam, Islam. The people said, Why are you telling us all to accept Islam?

00:47:57--> 00:48:33

He said, asleep asleep. In the Mohammedan Yoda era Julie lyac shall suffer. For verily Mohammed Islam gives the giving of a man who doesn't fear poverty. Even though he's so poor, he doesn't feel poverty. What's the proof? The proof was that this man messenger came from a tribe, to see the prophets of Allah. And before he left to go back to his tribe, the profitsystem gave him a valley of sheep, a valley full of sheep. This is whilst the Prophet had nothing to eat except the two black things, dates and water.

00:48:34--> 00:49:04

My brother's Islam This is true. This is how a prophet was. He gave like there was no tomorrow. He gave like a man who did not wait for tomorrow. In one narration, the Prophet says Salah finished his Asia moved away, went home straight away. Then he came back. Sahaba said eurosla what happened You didn't even make good Vickery went away. You came back he said, I remembered one dinner one gold coin that I had near my bed. It had fallen off from a pocket someone had given me a gift. And I did not want to wait a single second until I've given it away.

00:49:08--> 00:49:10

This is the person we're following f1

00:49:11--> 00:49:38

This is the person we're following hammers are seldom the most charitable of all human beings. If he can be can can do this without fearing poverty. If so, a man or Raji can do this without fearing poverty. If Warren Buffett can do this 99% of his wealth is given away without fearing poverty. If Bill Gates can do this, non Muslims can do this. Why can't Muslim mean? You have 40 Let me tell you something. Let me tell you something at the end of my talk today.

00:49:39--> 00:49:46

We want the oma to rise again. We want to return lonely back again. We want to stop all the fitna all the troubles happening again,

00:49:48--> 00:49:59

that we've got a we've got to start with ourselves. We want one generation of human beings one generation of Muslims, this the 21st century generation of Muslims, one generation of workers that are

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

Those who give 50% of the wealth away those who give 100% of the wealth away.

00:50:05--> 00:50:14

If we can have this, then we are I am certain that this oma will will rise up again. There is so much here to be done.

00:50:15--> 00:50:22

And in the care, there is not enough money to be done. Let me tell you how easy it is to solve the problems of the world. Do you know

00:50:23--> 00:50:34

that in a report that was published recently, by a consortium of charities in the UK I was flabbergasted, this report amazing. In a consortium of charities in the UK they published a report

00:50:36--> 00:51:24

this is Oxfam UK published a report that said to end world poverty, poverty, what's poverty, poverty is where you don't have food don't have clean water, education and house Yeah. So to end world poverty, how much money do you need worldwide? Africa? India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, everywhere, whether it's poverty, right? You want to end it? How much money do you need? They said 60 billion US dollars. Oh, that's a lot of money. 60 billion. But here's the facts. The fact is the top 100 people last year, the top 100 richest people last year, just the profits, not the capital, this the profits of the investments was $240 billion.

00:51:26--> 00:51:31

If they gave 25% of their money away, we could end world poverty.

00:51:35--> 00:51:55

La ilaha illa Allah brothers and sister Islam Allah who we are very selfish about this Islam we are very selfish people. Start with ourselves. Let us be the first people to prove to Allah azza wa jal yada, we're going to be like double blockers and armors we're going to give everything away as much as we can inshallah and even more than that,

00:51:56--> 00:52:38

and we know that that which is with you is more certain than that which is in our pocket. And we're going to follow the suit now for hubby Mohammed Salah this Ramadan, we're going to become the new generation of Abu Bakr has grammars that are going to relate revive this oma be in the law one more time.
