Yeah a

00:03:58 --> 00:03:59

00:04:12 --> 00:04:13

my god you know

what's up

00:04:19 --> 00:04:21

in Milan, how can I help you?

00:04:23 --> 00:04:27

Yeah, we got a couple of months ago who sent

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

us a contract

00:04:31 --> 00:04:36

to do were making a lot of sort of closing off even

00:04:40 --> 00:04:49

without a lot or accident heavy heavy what happened in SoCal or eight or seven or Shara deploy that as well.

00:04:51 --> 00:04:51


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

This week

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

we will conclude

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

Reflections on solidly put on, picking up where we left off after verse 67,

00:05:08 --> 00:05:15

Allah subhanho wa Taala he said it was describing the servants of our man, one Latina.

00:05:17 --> 00:05:23

Let us recall, whatever number two, what kind of data that is the POA.

00:05:25 --> 00:05:35

And they are those who when they spend that do not do so excessively for sparingly. What are ever between that moderate

00:05:36 --> 00:05:49

moderation influences everything that we do as muslims, when we're happy, we have moderation, because we know that that happiness can be taken away.

00:05:50 --> 00:06:19

When we are grieving, we have moderation. Because we know a lot of times is that hacking, the most wise, when we have friends, we have moderation, because people can change sometimes for the worse. When we have enemies, we have moderation, because of loss of carnivores are either less capable of opening anyone's hearts

00:06:20 --> 00:07:17

or some kind of whatever other is telling us here that our honor ration also has to affect our financial decisions. Recall the heavy mentioned last week about HIPAA about arrogance. The man was concerned about rejecting arrogance was going to mean that he had to dress in rags. He said Surely if people like to go out for ice clothes, at my state things the Prophet alayhi salatu salam he responded that a lot of Tada is beautiful. And Allah says POC there is nothing wrong with having a nice clothes, a nice car, a nice home, living in a nice neighborhood within my school system as Muslims, no one has the right to make you feel guilty for that. Allah Tala says for the man how Roma

00:07:17 --> 00:07:18

Zina from walking

00:07:19 --> 00:07:21

dead anymore by either female or risk.

00:07:22 --> 00:07:31

Say who has forbidden the adornments of Allah, which she has brought forth for His servants. And the good things of His provision.

00:07:33 --> 00:07:42

A law calls it pins in this area sort of the photo is enough the law given its honor and showing that it is good.

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

Then he reminds us that it is he who has produced it and he who has brought it out for us. And he asks a rhetorical question here, which implies blame for whoever what their answer who could possibly forbidden this gamma, this Cena after a long time Allah has produced it and given it to the service.

00:08:09 --> 00:08:10


00:08:11 --> 00:08:15

there is a point at which spending does become excessive

00:08:17 --> 00:09:21

spending can become excessive in an absolute sense, meaning that regardless of the context, or situation, there is a certain amount of spending that feels wasteful. This usually has to do with access that can't be used, for example, buying so much food that you can't eat at all. And so it goes bad and you end up throwing it away. This is excessive things that are forwarded and that sort of unused, also fall into this category. It should tell us something that in the city. In Islamic law, we have mechanisms in place to redistribute, redistribute barren land, even if its own. So cats similarly as the tax on certain types of hoarded wealth, including merchandise and currency. It's

00:09:21 --> 00:09:59

not attached on income, nor is it a tax on things that you use things for your personal use. But for merchandise and currency, if it exceeds a certain amount, and then after that doesn't dip below that amount of square in the entire lunar year. The way that the capital structure encourages us to use our budget, whether it's giving out personal loans or investing or even buying things that we use, but if it sits if it doesn't move

00:10:00 --> 00:10:35

If it stays unused, then the catch is you on. Notice how these aspects of Islamic law are targeting unused wealth because unused wealth is excessive. Spending can also be excessive in a relative sense given what the local community's needs are. This is the situation described in the Hadith of the Prophet alayhi salatu was set up on that best football body he was part of a ceremonial area share with

00:10:37 --> 00:10:51

you a political adviser. I think it's given our nasty side of the prophets a lot. He was suddenly said that he is not a believer whose stomach is filled with why his next door neighbor goes hungry.

00:10:52 --> 00:11:46

It's a two way street. Muslims who have wealth must be left alone to enjoy their wealth in times of peace and stability. No one should be gross than what the Lord has blessed them with. However, when a crisis arises, Muslims with wealth have a greater responsibility and the grace or duty to rise to the occasion. This happened time and time again during the life of the Prophet alayhi salam. Companions such as a welcome and sound of an annual pass an Earth man and others were extremely wealthy. Whenever there was a situation that required funds that require financing, they stepped up and save the day with how they used that wealth. Sometimes in these situations, there was a pressing

00:11:46 --> 00:12:02

need for the Muslim community, something where if they had that thing, it would improve the situation of everyone. A typical example is from the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the well we'll have your phone bit of

00:12:04 --> 00:12:58

a drought hit Medina and the water was very scarce. The crops and the animals were even starting to suffer. The only ample source of water was a well, that was owned by a man who was not a Muslim. As people were driven by necessity to form to buy water from this individual, he took advantage of the situation, charging very, very high prices. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he knew the situation this community was in and he informed them that whoever bought slabs well and helps the community would be in paradise, Earth man and only about one he jumped at this opportunity. At first he went to the owner of the wellhead, we offered him a direct buyouts. The owner of the weld however, was

00:12:58 --> 00:13:52

making far too much money to accept stuff. So he refused. Earth man, however, was very, very clever. He then offered supply half of the wealth from the man with each of them, they would also take days. The man agreed, or the man was a very famous businessman are extremely popular. The owner of the weld probably thought he was going to enhance his brand and attracts more customers by becoming partners with Birdman. Or if man was not doing business for the dunya however, he was doing business for his afterlife. When it was his day, he gave all the water away for free, and the Muslims rejoice. Now people only came to the wildlife with man's day ruining the business of the other man,

00:13:53 --> 00:14:37

Earth man that offers a buying a house to own the wealthy completely. And the former business owner had no choice but to access. Earth man, however, was not finished there. He made that well in the surrounding plantation into a trust and walk. Today that wealth still exists in Medina. When we go there together for Oberon Shaohua, we can visit this the deeds of the property is still in effect, the thing that they thrown on that property are sold and half of the revenue goes to widows and orphans in the area while the other half is invested. The name on the bank accounts to this day is refined enough.

00:14:38 --> 00:14:47

He has been collecting reward with a law and raising his rank in paradise every single day for the past 1400 years.

00:14:48 --> 00:14:59

The majority of people in this room right now we have the opportunity to have a legacy similar to it is possible. We can do it. The first step

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

It is by paying years have passed regularly. And the vast majority segments have should be paid locally. Yes, Muslims are suffering everywhere. All over the world. Yes, the need is greater in other parts of the world. This is true. No one is saying not to give to those causes, please do but make that some of the cast. According to the majority of the recommend and founded the standard was of death for all of the four people schools. They say that's a capitalist other concerns behind it. Besides helping the poor. Some of those concerns include reducing tensions between the wealthy and the poor in your local Muslim community, and building trust between the locals comes. The second

00:15:54 --> 00:16:47

step, if you want to have a legacy labor man, is to support the machine regularly. Every month, at least, everyone who is blessed enough to be employed during these difficult times should have a recurring monthly donation to the machine, even if it's just $1 $5. We live in times of hate how most of us have auto pay set up for our bills or set up for Netflix or other things along those actions that are consistent, even if that means that they are smaller, are given to the messenger domesticated should similarly be consistent. The third step, and this really takes you high into the rights of those such as our man, everyone should have a will and should plan on leaving a portion of

00:16:47 --> 00:17:07

their wealth to the machine. The profit on a salon for celebrity says and this how do you consider signing up a hobby? It is not permissible for any Muslim who has something to do to stay for two nights without having his last will and testament written and kept ready with him.

00:17:09 --> 00:17:39

If you look around at the other religious communities, and you wonder, how can they have a food pantry? How can they have a homeless shelter? How can they have a gym or an elementary school? This is one of the reasons they have had three or four generations of community members members who have left a portion of their wealth behind to their house of worship. And their house of worship has ruled that money and romance wisely.

00:17:41 --> 00:17:47

Next allowed me to strive for service offline is one that he told me they're gonna have to log into that

00:17:48 --> 00:17:52

when I upload that, to see how to log in, they have

00:17:53 --> 00:17:58

what I assume Omega Modelica FM

00:17:59 --> 00:18:15

and those who do not invoke with a law another deviancy or kill the soul which Allah has forbidden to be killed, except our rights. And if you're not coming from unlawful sexual *, and whoever shouldn't do any of those will meet.

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

Allah groups together here in this verse three heinous criminal acts idolatry, murder, and fornication. Each one of these sins unleashes chaos in the lives of those involved and in the broader community. It misapplies three of our most important faculties our capacity for reverence, our capacity for violence, and our capacity for love and affection.

00:18:50 --> 00:19:34

Idolatry should have, since it is not warranted by genuine revelation involves oppressive and arbitrary customs. This kind of meet your own religion becomes in practice a cover for people's worst inclinations. Look at the level of misogyny that the previous number of adults have descended to, they will either bury their loved ones and daughters alive. When idolatry is random. These individuals live in fear of Imaginary Forces they can neither see nor predicts, and the elites who claim to speak for those Imaginary Forces commit atrocities until the masses that goes atrocities please the idols.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:53

Murder, similarly removes all sense of security and enjoyment from individual and community life. When people's lives are not respected. You hesitate to let your kids play outside in the streets. You hesitate to leave your home yourself.

00:19:54 --> 00:19:59

People beat up strangers and the community vanishes. Everyone

00:20:00 --> 00:20:02

What's over their shoulders in here?

00:20:03 --> 00:20:57

Fornication similarly destroys individual lives, families and communities. When fornication is appealing, because it fools people into thinking that they can have only the enjoyable parts of a relationship without any commitments or responsibility in this way that objectifies people, instead of people choosing partners based off of their virtue, their compatibility, or their ability to support the long term relationship in the hopper culture we have today, although people are reduced to their mere attractiveness, and appeal. Women who are the main victims of this objectification, even if they are willing participants are usually stuck with the consequences, at the very least, of

00:20:57 --> 00:21:00

broken hearts, at worst, unwanted children.

00:21:02 --> 00:21:16

Marriages trivialized by an entertainment industry that has found it more profitable to sell the feelings of being in love than the long term satisfaction of raising children with a supportive partner.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:25

Marriage is therefore seen as an unnecessary formality. Just a piece of paper as people often refer to,

00:21:26 --> 00:21:32

if we can have love without marriage, so the logic goes, what doesn't matter if we're married or not.

00:21:34 --> 00:21:49

And while feeling loved and being involved is important. Our society has forgotten that the main purpose behind marriage is to provide the best environments in which to raise children.

00:21:50 --> 00:22:02

Each partner in the relationship has to have a stake in standing together, each of them has to formally commit so they can't just run away when things get difficult.

00:22:04 --> 00:22:30

Fornication destroys all the last one patterns. Usually the woman ends up solely responsible for the children. Children growing up with just one parents are more likely to struggle at school, more likely to have behavior problems, more likely to get involved in criminal activity and substance abuse. The list goes on and on and on. And this is all well documented by research.

00:22:32 --> 00:22:41

If people ever wonder why is I'm taking such a hard stance on this issue, this is why the consequences are simply too grim.

00:22:42 --> 00:23:07

These three sins idolatry, murder and fornication all destroyed individual lives and destroying society. This is why a law that says you are not allowed we'll mount the Amity way up would be Mohan multiply for such a person is the punishment on the Day of Resurrection and he will apply there in

00:23:09 --> 00:23:21

those who go beyond the laws limits in these three areas. If they don't prevent will have to reckon with Allah's wrath but punishments in the afterlife for the chaos

00:23:22 --> 00:23:25

that they spread on Earth. I'm

00:23:26 --> 00:23:30

not gonna lie a wonderful body sadly more significantly than most of you will.

00:23:43 --> 00:23:56

Send me for shipping otherwise have teamed up with Tina questo. And you know, he's a long way from last week and I'm counting I'm checking on me and I will say even though it will happen in October so for

00:23:57 --> 00:24:01

some of our he was having he worked for

00:24:02 --> 00:24:11

a law firm. He then have an unfortunate exception after emphasizing the enormity of these major sins, even though

00:24:13 --> 00:24:20

what am one we saw you told you betting on Wall city?

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

What kind of local go full blown.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:51

Except for those who repents who believe that the righteous works for them. Allah will replace their evil deeds with good morals and effort is all Forgiving and Merciful. Allah is telling us a fundamental doctrine of our faith that no sin is too big for all often forgiven if if we turn away and repentance.

00:24:52 --> 00:24:54

How does this repentance work?

00:24:55 --> 00:24:59

Allah tells us in reverse, he says those who repent and

00:25:00 --> 00:25:13

believe and do righteous work. Don't think that you can just say you're sorry. and be done with this and move on. You have to prove your sincerity with your actions.

00:25:14 --> 00:25:38

We have inspiring examples of companions who oppose a son and forth against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam only later to accept a lot of Skiles terms and hidden repentance and live a virtuous life. Afterwards, a lot of the a lot more, had left his house with a sword in his hand and ready to kill the Prophet saw off it was

00:25:39 --> 00:25:46

called the ability of the alarm or Apple was responsible for tremendous loss of muscle life at the battlefield.

00:25:48 --> 00:25:57

Even I was again, from your loved one, who organized the campaign against Muslims at the Battle of offer in the Battle of the Trench.

00:25:59 --> 00:26:16

Allah eventually got him and all of them to sincere faith, and the virtuous like, their stories show us that no matter how far away you have straight away, it only takes one single step to turn back to Allah.

00:26:19 --> 00:26:21

This almost seems too good to be true.

00:26:22 --> 00:26:30

We assume that Allah is going to hold a grudge against our past selves, because we as human beings hold grudges.

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

Alive alliances, peace establish, which is why he says in the next verse, woman tab or is already in Abuja, so when we are walking out,

00:26:42 --> 00:27:27

and he who repents, and those righteousness does indeed turn to Allah has accepted repentance, Allah is doubling down on his promise of hope, and forgiveness. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and he said, in an authentic Have you collected the Sunnah typically, a lot of the Almighty has said, Oh, son of Adam, as long as you've invoked me and asked me, I shall forgive you for what you have done. And I shut off mine. That's Oh, sorry, I don't worry your sins to reach the clouds of the sky. And if you ask me for forgiveness, I would still forgive you, Oh, son of Adam, where are you to come to me with sins nearly as gracious the earth. And where do you then so basically ascribing no partner

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

to me, worshiping on other beside me,

00:27:31 --> 00:27:34

I would bring you forgiveness as great as that.

00:27:36 --> 00:27:39

Then all that continues describing servants,

00:27:40 --> 00:27:43

one day and I should have on a zoo,

00:27:44 --> 00:27:47

what either mother will be a lovely mother who get on.

00:27:48 --> 00:27:57

And they those who do not testify to falsehood. And when they pass by speech, they pass it with dignity.

00:27:59 --> 00:28:05

A loss describing the relationship that we should have to the evil that goes on in the world.

00:28:06 --> 00:28:08

One levena either hook you up if you

00:28:10 --> 00:29:04

lend me a favor, why some piano and those who when reminded of the verses of their Lord do not call upon them deaf and blind. Allah is telling us a relationship, we should have some of the guidance that he gives us. Significantly, he leaves him open ended. He doesn't tell us what to do. As much as he tells us what not to do. We are not to be heedless, we are not swimming unaffected. When we hear a loss versus a loss versus they require activity, they require engagements, this engagements can take many forms. But the overall message is that as people have faith, we should be open to change. We should be open for self improvement. If you look at your worship and your level of faith today,

00:29:04 --> 00:29:13

and you find that it is the same as last year and the year before and the year before that, then you have to know that there is a problem.

00:29:15 --> 00:29:30

Every so often, we need a shake up. We need to experiment. We need to push ourselves we need to try new things, so that our faith and our emotion doesn't become stiff and lifeless.

00:29:31 --> 00:29:34

Then the last set says one Levy anyanwu And a lot been

00:29:35 --> 00:29:38

made as well in the Yaquina book was

00:29:40 --> 00:29:42

was in Kentucky

00:29:43 --> 00:29:53

and those who say our Lord grant us from among our wives offspring comfort to our eyes, and make us an example for the righteous.

00:29:54 --> 00:29:59

To become a true servants above Hawkman a law tells us here we need to be aware

00:30:00 --> 00:30:07

Either of two things. We need to be aware of our responsibility for the righteousness of our family.

00:30:09 --> 00:30:13

And we need to be aware of our duty to be leaders and role models.

00:30:16 --> 00:30:29

Be aware that the righteousness of your family Yes. Is your responsibility also reality over here and who am equal now? Not all of whom will have an absolutely no.

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

Oh, you have requested believes, protects yourselves and your families from a fire whose fuel is equal and stones in a hadith agreed upon by the audience some of the

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


00:30:46 --> 00:30:48

I'm having. So for those

00:30:50 --> 00:30:51

of us who are not

00:30:55 --> 00:30:56

all are in a whole other school.

00:30:59 --> 00:31:05

What wasn't O'Brien? He basically worked for a school. I know, what are some of our

00:31:06 --> 00:31:06

other bases,

00:31:08 --> 00:31:14

or whatever? Well, he was with us for the hackathon. And he said he was what was called I'm

00:31:16 --> 00:31:30

going to call nine o'clock on a school nonmarine getting a proper Salah why he was set up, he said that certainly each and every one of you is a shepherd responsible for his and her flock. The leader

00:31:32 --> 00:31:59

is responsible for the community. The man is a shepherd and responsible for his family. The woman is the shepherd and responsible for the house and children. Even a servants in the hadith is a shepherd responsible for the material interests of whoever we serve. And we can apply that to say that the employee, the employee is responsible for the interests of who he works for.

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

If this is our duty, and we have to take the means we have to avail ourselves of every opportunity locally, and otherwise, to ensure the righteousness of our children.

00:32:14 --> 00:32:25

We can't leave them without instruction without guidance. There are forces out there that wants to influence your children, but don't really care about them or how they turned out.

00:32:26 --> 00:32:33

All they wants is their attention, their likes their lights, and eventually, their money.

00:32:34 --> 00:32:38

We can't leave our children unsupervised, or else they will easily fall prey.

00:32:40 --> 00:32:41

Where do we start?

00:32:42 --> 00:32:57

How do we take responsibility for our families are lucky was answered in the first. The second thing we have to be aware of necessitated by the first we have to be aware of our duty to be leaders and role models.

00:32:58 --> 00:33:03

Your responsibility for the righteousness of your family starts with you.

00:33:04 --> 00:33:23

Don't think that you can always outsource it to the man or to the messaging. And don't get me wrong. I love your children. And I think that they are magnificent human beings. But even if you sign them up for every programming class, how many hours a week? Well, I have with me.

00:33:25 --> 00:33:30

Righteousness starts at home. Once you do, your kids will do

00:33:31 --> 00:33:37

the vast majority of the time it's yourselves, your kids will follow

00:33:38 --> 00:33:51

the record. It's not just in this slide. Allah subhanaw taala he says next will be rezone and the word for the amount of follow when why you're not gonna feed.

00:33:54 --> 00:34:14

Those who will be rewarded the chamber for what they have historically endured, that they will be received everything with readings and words of peace. Allah tells us here indirectly, indirectly he says that this path Yes, it requires species. It's not easy to be a leader. It's not easy to fix yourself.
