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

I don't want to die. I can hire the best doctors. I can hire the best scientists death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. Yeah. Oh, he doesn't want to die is Jeff Bezos trying to live forever to write your legacy. What would you want your legacy?

00:00:19--> 00:00:22

To read? Can you tell me who's the richest person in the world?

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

Jeff Bezos.

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

Do you want to be even richer than Him?

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

Yes, of course.

00:00:44--> 00:01:17

We need to do this for the future of our children, the future of our great country, the future of mankind. This is your brother of one I'm going to follow up. And I've got a very important message that hamdulillah brother Eddie is setting up the Dean center, not just the Dean show, but the Dean center of full Tao Academy, a masjid, a Dallas center in America, the first of its type that a groundbreaking project and I want everybody as I'm supporting it, I want everybody to support it. So we can take the Dawa, to the next level. We need the deen center, please support it.

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

When I

00:01:23--> 00:01:24

smell Alhamdulillah, I said

00:01:29--> 00:02:11

I want to thank you all for hosting us here this wonderful community in Florida, Brandon. Thank you guys later to be with everybody. And we're going to get right into it. As you know, we started back in 2006, one of the first and one of the only Islamic TV talk shows and we've been trying to deliver the purpose of life in a very simple, easy to understand way without compromising, delivering the message of towhee the pure monotheism. And that's what I want to talk to you about share. Sure, you know recently, it was some sad events that happen here in Florida, you know, there was a hurricane headed towards Tampa, wasn't it? And I heard it took a little reverse and it went another direction.

00:02:11--> 00:02:56

And I was talking to a friend of mine. So Alhamdulillah this community was kept safe. And it said that many of the places they were they went under so I'm talking to a friend of mine from Naples. And he's describing to me how on the beachfront they have homes. I'm not talking about $10,000 homes or $100,000 homes. I'm talking about $10 million homes, $20 million homes, all the up to $40 million homes. And he said that all of them they were close to this area between him and Fort Myers. God so right away, I'm thinking like, okay, insurance, he said, No, he said they don't get the flood insurance because they're right there on the beach. It's what he's telling me. So I started thinking

00:02:56--> 00:03:24

Subhanallah when these things happen, you know, many people invest all their money, their time, their effort into the dunya into the material world, calamities like this hit are these times that Allah says size that people reflect or these are times that people really get to contemplate and reflect purpose? Why am I here? Why have I been critical? What are your thoughts when you hear something like this, there is a beautiful verse, which detects that in

00:03:26--> 00:03:30

in a suit in a beautiful way and swats us

00:03:33--> 00:03:50

in that verse, Allah subhana, Allah mentions that Allah brings down rain, then because of the rain, you start having vegetation, and then it grows. And the one who placed the seed and

00:03:52--> 00:03:58

was the caretaker of this particular vegetation.

00:03:59--> 00:04:33

would look at it in a very boastful and admiring it. Allah Subhana Allah uses a very interesting way. One low her another car the owner had a year until they became so confident that we own this, this is ours. That says we control this. They forgot who brought the rain down.

00:04:34--> 00:04:39

They forgot why they are here. Allah Subhana Allah Allah

00:04:40--> 00:04:46

Amona Allah has command cane and he wiped it off.

00:04:47--> 00:04:52

Exactly also like the people of the garden. There is

00:04:54--> 00:05:00

in Bella Luna whom come Bella Luna as Harbin Jana. That's the

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

The brothers who went to harvest they had this beautiful garden and they refused to share with them as a team. So they went to harvest this garden in the middle of the night so that the poor and the needy would not wake up in the morning and share with them are common requests that shave the sadhaka from that harvest Allah subhanaw taala also send something stone that ye did away.

00:05:31--> 00:05:50

Again this becomes like a reminder that you're not in control of anything you're only here for a test and Allah subhanaw taala sometimes he tests you with what you consider to be good and sometimes he tests you with what you consider to be learned the people have had talked about how they build a fight

00:05:53--> 00:06:06

they will almost 50 Watt feet tall you know and they built a home they end up strong structures they used to dig the homes in the mountains see how strong they are.

00:06:10--> 00:06:18

Look how and Surratt facility for an add on first tech bottle fill out of the wakad Min Asha Domina.

00:06:19--> 00:06:57

As for that he will fire they were so arrogant on Earth. And they said who's stronger than us? Who's stronger than us? You know, recall Allah, Allah Allah mural and Allah had led the Halacha who don't who don't the reflect and consider there is someone who created them? Shouldn't he be stronger than them? Who made you strong? Allah? Who made you wilfy Allah, so he must be stronger than you. And he must be wealthier than you. Again, how does Allah destroy them?

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

With the Wind, with the wind?

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

For ourselves now,

00:07:05--> 00:07:48

we sent them with a stone blindness. You know, sometimes we belittle the wind, that's winning, you know, it's nothing, but Subhanallah must pan out the other makes the wind out of context out of the norm. And to the extent that it destroys things that we, you know, are precious to us. There's another individual who runs one of the most successful companies name is Jeff Bezos, you heard of him want like, these are people who see themselves as gods who want to be world historical figures. They're they're literally do that. Who do you think is doing that? Well, like Jeff Bezos? You think he thinks himself as a god? Yeah, really? Yeah. Really? You don't?

00:07:49--> 00:08:29

Jeff Bezos was Amazon. Yeah. So now, you know, because these things, really when you have all this type of money. Yeah. And now, as one who has submitted to the will of the Creator, not the creation of Muslim, you're always been reminded, you know, because this guy gathered, oh, that's what I was gonna ask you next year. So the thing is that obviously, as Muslims, we're trying to prepare, we're trying to have that wealth in our hands, not in our heart. And to remind ourselves that always being conscious of the afterlife, and trying to plant those seeds of goodness, so then we can be prepared to go ahead and have what's waiting for us in the next life. But now, when someone like Jeff Bezos,

00:08:29--> 00:08:53

he starts to think like, Hold on all this money. Right now I can hire the best doctors, I can hire the best scientists. Let's talk about that. Because that was something that was recent. You came upon that he tried to put a committee together to see how his life can be what extended or new. Yeah. Oh, he doesn't want to die. It's Jeff Bezos trying to live for ever to write your legacy. What would you want your legacy

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

to read? World's Oldest man.

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

But I would love it. Let's work on that. I keep telling my biotech friends hurry.

00:09:06--> 00:09:53

To Hell, guys. Come on. Yeah. So he gathered those of you guys read this or not, but it was out the public record that he gathered from doctors, scientists, people in the field of biology, you know, okay, I don't want to die. Death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be. Because death is very likely the single best invention of life. Its life's change agent, it clears out the old to make way for the new find the way that I want to live. So I kind of enjoy this money as of how you can do that. So you can do regardless of how much you know, he's, what's the Pamela Look at, look at us. That's the beauty of believing the hereafter. You know,

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

you know, I always think of the rafter that you're gonna go out there to Allah subhanaw taala

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

and you're gonna find something better actually better than what you had here. Even if you had what this is name is Basil, Jeff Basil, basil, even if you have as much as his Subhanallah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describe the dunya for the believers to the jail at duniya CG new and more men jail, whatever that will care for you. Whatever you will have in the hereafter. Even if you have as much as basil, you know, the hereafter is way better. Yes, that can you tell me who's the richest person in the world?

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

Jeff Bezos

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

Do you want to be even richer than Him?

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

Yes, of course.

00:10:51--> 00:11:01

Listen to me carefully. Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam said the two sunnah cause of Fajr is better than the whole world and everything in it

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

now go pray

00:11:09--> 00:11:32

you know there is a Hadith for this I remember hurry that the least person or scholars within recommend me saying that the poorest person in gender the poor is the last one who would intergender the last one supposed to be the poorest. He's gonna have 10 times this world, the entire world in

00:11:36--> 00:11:44

addition to the last one who will come among the last Muslim who will come out of hell and will be released in January 10 times this world Subhan Allah

00:11:45--> 00:12:04

you are also sharing with me earlier and authentic hadith from the last economist who said to mankind probe Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him talking about and differentiate the four the one who has money doesn't have a mind has, you know, can you break that down for us because of some really powerful to really have us reflect even more?

00:12:06--> 00:12:23

You're referring to Hadith Abbey capsule unnati about the Allahu Anhu hadith is authentic. Subhanallah this hadith is so beautiful, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually asked us to memorize it.

00:12:25--> 00:12:47

Very few things the prophet would say. And he would tell you memorize this one. He said what were in me, you had difficult Hadith can follow. I'm gonna narrate to you a hadith. I want you to memorize it. Look at this. Enamel do nearly a robot enough.

00:12:48--> 00:12:51

There are four types of people in this world.

00:12:52--> 00:13:38

You're one of them by the way. You belong to one of them. Number one, the first or tool in our tool room. Terrible love. We're in min one Anna. The first someone ALLAH SubhanA. Allah Allah has given knowledge to he has knowledge, knowledge of the religion, knowledge of the FLR knowledge of why he's here, knowledge of why he's being tested the wisdom behind his test. And Allah given his money to wealth both. He has a wealth of knowledge, knowledge and wealth, because of his knowledge. He's very careful in how he earns the money, and how he spends it. Very careful.

00:13:39--> 00:13:45

You see, on the Day of Judgment, there will be two questions when it comes to money.

00:13:47--> 00:14:05

The prophets of Allah are seldom mentioned that the feet of the son of Adam will not move out of the land of gathering unless he's asked about there is one word in five one morning for one of the things about his wealth, how did he earn

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

and how did he spend it both?

00:14:10--> 00:14:27

For this man because of his knowledge, he earns the money from her. He doesn't earn it from him. Also, he utilizes the money ducky fee here aka wire and he fully learned he fee he was also up here.

00:14:28--> 00:14:47

He spends in the Cause of Allah from this wealth. Also he uses that wealth to uphold his kinship ties that he shares with his closest kids. You know, he's not t g, in a way and this is the best you can be.

00:14:49--> 00:14:53

This is the top of the line that Allah will give you money and now

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

look, the second one, someone Allah Subhana Allah Allah give him none

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

About no money,

00:15:02--> 00:15:08

but Subhan Allah because of that beautiful knowledge. He's not envious of the first one.

00:15:09--> 00:15:19

You know, he understands that wealth is part of Allah choose him over me 100 Allah, this is Palace, but he wishes to be like him,

00:15:20--> 00:16:08

says, If I would have his money, I will do like him. I would spend like him, I would build this masjid, I would build a school, I would help the needy, I would help the poor. He's always what worker is intention, wanting to be like the first one without what without wishing for him to lose it. Therefore there is destructive envy and there is constructive envy. An RB the word envy is not meant as well Nipah constructive envy, that you wish to be like the other person without wishing or wanting Allah to take away what they have. That's typical that you want to be like the person. So this is the second best. Look at this, the second one because of his intention, because of his

00:16:08--> 00:16:59

intention, he equals the first one. So he didn't do any work. Look at the beauty of knowledge. Therefore, when you have knowledge, he didn't do anything. He was not tested with the money. He did not worry about how did he earn it? How did he spend? He just had a good intention because of that intention. He wouldn't receive the same reward like the first one The Prophet said work for Hua Binetti from Houma fill a gap so because of his intention, he receives an equal status equal reward like the first one so those are what two so what was the first one? knowledge and knowledge and wealth the second one knowledge without we'll look at the third one and the third one Allah subhana

00:16:59--> 00:17:03

wa Taala giving him will no knowledge

00:17:06--> 00:17:46

tell who love will mana while I'm up here No, no no he doesn't have any not see see the significance of knowledge here for Allah it was a prophet used the term unbelievable. The RRB brothers would understand. I look for an English shakes out I look for an English there is nothing really special whatever for who is a bit puffy. Maddie Yeah, that will female you're not you have to go to family. Have you ever seen someone who's drunk? And he's walking around and he's already hitting everybody? Have you ever seen that? See ya. You know, he's that's how he handles his money.

00:17:48--> 00:18:01

He is not the best but yeah, he's he's he's I don't know he doesn't care whether he earns it from haram use it. He goes and gets usury money. He earns the Haram money. And then he spends it

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

has happened Heidi has told us the story that a very wealthy are okay, we're not going to identify his national here so we don't get in trouble.

00:18:19--> 00:18:21

went to London

00:18:22--> 00:18:25

then you will know that people want the oil it's yeah.

00:18:27--> 00:18:32

So he's in a circle waiting. There is a light out there and he was driving this.

00:18:34--> 00:18:55

There's a car called rough road Rolls Royce Rolls Royce rolls something like that very. And he had a bag of money with him. You know, imagine is so somehow shaitan cables. I wouldn't see the Brits running after my money. So you know what he did? He of course this car has that.

00:18:56--> 00:18:59

Sunroof so he stood up and he opened the bag of money

00:19:01--> 00:19:11

at Heathrow. Look at the Brits. They have taken a look how lovely This is. And the Brits. They're on the way it's the Lili Sterling Ultra de

00:19:13--> 00:19:27

they run they go and they will be that time. They imagine someone who who goes and buys Michel Angelou lecture half a million for what are you gonna do with it? This is not either yours.

00:19:28--> 00:19:51

Or someone who has a boat has a you know, that's yuck but some for what? You know or people who go and buy these. You know, for what this is what messing around with the money and the Day of Judgment. Subhanallah you're going to be asked, Where did he spend that money? This is the worst. Look at the last one. The worst of the worst.

00:19:52--> 00:19:54

The ugly of the flu sweater I

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

did not give him money. No knowledge. No

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

of the, but because he lacked the knowledge so he wishes to be like, Oh,

00:20:06--> 00:20:26

the first, the second, the third, you wouldn't be like the third. I wish I have this money man. This is and those who are mentioned the echo these four times you will mention in the story of Kowloon for Harada Allah told me he fees enough to call the Ladino up do not hire the dunya.

00:20:29--> 00:20:35

Rune. He didn't know who that who have the Navi for those are the four in sha Allah.

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

I hope you're planning to be number

00:20:40--> 00:20:41

one or at least two.

00:20:43--> 00:21:09

But please stay away from three and four because this is disasters. Last question Sheikh I want to go ahead and connect it with what we started off with giving an example how just in a fraction of a second everything can go ahead and just be wiped out all of the dunya things but will your investment in the deen in a masjid in the Dawa? Does that get wiped out after leaves? You?

00:21:12--> 00:21:19

Look at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said this yahoogroup know Adam, Manny, Manny Manny,

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

the son of Adam always says, I want the money, I want the money, I want my money.

00:21:27--> 00:21:38

What do you then Allah says, what what do you want the money for? Or sort of? What do you need the money for literally, you need to eat and get hungry and eat.

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

Or you need to if

00:21:43--> 00:21:50

it gets old, and then you wait it again. That's what you need the money for. But look at this one factor.

00:21:52--> 00:22:15

But your true wealth is what will stay for you on the Day of Judgment that you spend in this world. And Allah will give it to you and that is judgment will also allow others to make work. He said something very interesting too. I didn't know the Hadith, but the context is the when he was given a sheep

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

and his wife, I shall not be alone. And I knew that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would like to eat the shoulder.

00:22:24--> 00:22:29

But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to her, I want you to slap it and please share it with our

00:22:30--> 00:22:56

he didn't ask him to keep anything. So when he returned to you want to verify whether she did this or not? What happened to the CBI said you notice it, all of it is gone or have gotten I shared it as video destruction. Accept the shoulder, you know what the Prophet said? Or Aisha, all of it, stay except the shoulder.

00:22:57--> 00:23:14

So Subhanallah when you spin an ephah you know, I'm sorry to say that we live in a country. I mean, this is a disclaimer, you have to pay your Social Security you know that they take a whole bunch of your you know, a whole chunk of money from your

00:23:15--> 00:23:17

paycheck right? What's it called?

00:23:18--> 00:23:32

Level associate Social Security, isn't that they don't they stop they do that work? They say I don't I don't make any money. So that's why I don't see that. Social Security. Right. So when are you supposed to get that Social Security?

00:23:33--> 00:23:43

When what age 65 Now on very soon is going to be 70 Right? You know what the Prophet said? The lifespan of my ummah between 60 and 70

00:23:45--> 00:23:52

the majority of us are gonna live until 60 and hardly till 70 So when are you gonna get this money?

00:23:53--> 00:24:32

And we believe the system and we take the money Yes, I want to imagine Allah subhanho wa Taala it takes the solder off from you. And by the way, these guys they invest that money where our guys here they invest the money way. And ha do they invest in social security and work in usury in a bank stuff in mortgage? All that stuff is haram stuff and when they need it, they break into it. Okay, let's take some money from because we're in debt here you know, but in Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will accept the follow up from you.

00:24:33--> 00:24:57

Then WhatsApp fulmar you will be gamma you're the one who calls her the one Subhan Allah then Allah will grow it for you Allah will invest it for you. Exactly like you raise a baby horse and fellow will lower the horse like he is equal. So Allah will grow it for you will vote for you better than stocks.

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

Better than stocks and care

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

Oh no, of course crypto No, no, nothing of that. Hello. And Allah is not going to break into it because he he needs it Allah doesn't need is going to need Eve. Allah is going to give it to you. And that's that, you know, just compare this with that. So Allah and again, we still reluctant to spend in the call of Allah subhanaw taala and this is why you know the Hadith of the fool that I just quoted right now, you know how it started? How it started, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said what? fella? Oxymoron? Are you him? Three things I'm willing to take on?

00:25:37--> 00:25:59

First of all, why rasool Allah Azza wa sallam needed to take off from this. Why the disbelievers themselves? How did they describe them? How did they enable him? What did they say to him? You are what? You know what you saw in that mountain? And he said to them, if I tell you that there is an army behind this mountain,

00:26:00--> 00:26:04

who's about to attack you? Will you believe me? What did they say to him?

00:26:05--> 00:26:19

What did they say? We will believe you why? Why not? I hate now. I can either we never experienced new line. You always tell the truth. Why would we accuse you flying now

00:26:21--> 00:26:31

rasool Allah here is talking to Muslims telling them Walla Walla look at number one, Na Na masala

00:26:32--> 00:27:02

your wolf will never decrease because of a sadhaka that you give for the sake of Allah. So your money will not decrease. Not only that Allah subhanaw taala said in the Quran, that Allah subhana wa Tada will give it to you. We'll give it back to you, one, and fuck to Megan Shea in fact, who our youth live who, whatever you spend in the Corps of Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will give it to you, man, aka some elements of

00:27:03--> 00:27:07

your wealth will never decrease because of a sadhaka that you give.

00:27:09--> 00:27:19

So you've been here with us quite a few times. What are your impressions on the property now that we're looking to take the de show to the dean center?

00:27:21--> 00:27:28

I always I have known atheists for years, I think maybe close to 20 years.

00:27:30--> 00:27:47

You know, Eddie in Chicago used to have these, you know, studio this nice humbles to view Nothing extravagant. But he would bring us you know, to the studio and and he will talk about the ideals you know.

00:27:49--> 00:28:11

And I always told him that there is a difference between talking about it and actually executing it. So he decided to actually move to the next level and I'm trying to establish something Allah Subhana Allah Allah has blessed him with a nice piece of property. Some of you may have seen it, whether physically or virtually,

00:28:13--> 00:28:16

where he wanted to have this Dawa centers.

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

You know, Allah subhanaw taala this I think the It's On route 60 Right 66 Or 60 6060 freeway highway 60 Beautiful.

00:28:30--> 00:29:17

Imagine having a sign there. That means Center and the police is welcoming you know the police is will come so that's what Ed imagine. If someone gets guided in that center, Brothers and Sisters in Islam the Prophet said this to him or the Allah article, they said what law aka the Allah will be covered with and how you will mean a dunya over here, if Allah guides to you one soul is better than the entire world is one soul. Now you become a means to that. You will help with that brothers. There will be also a masjid there full time Masjid five daily prayers, inshallah there is a need for a masjid in this area. I have not seen one. So there is a need for a master's in this area. Also,
