Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah ariosa
and jabiru the Allahu anhu caracara Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kulu ma ofin sadaqa, jab rhodiola, underrated that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said kulu motto in South Africa, that every act of goodness is considered, as reported by Al Bukhari.
This chapter as we've been talking, talking about how to be how important to be connected with your family member, your neighbors, your relatives, the people at large. So since we talking about connecting with people, and being connected with society and community around us, he brought this hadith to show us what the nature of this connection, this connection should be based on goodness, based on exchanging good good act between us and others. every act of goodness is considered sada. So everyone is requested is asked, encouraged to do an act of goodness to others and this is will be a form of charity that the person will be rewarded for it that's applied to the parents that apply
to that. relatives, neighbors, strangers, friends, any kind of
good deeds or something consider as good you do to others, you will be rewarded for it no matter how that who is that person is. And by the way, this Hadith, the way that has been narrated this way, it's only and say hello Buhari. Even though the this part of another Hadith which is reported by Buhari
when Muslim men had it who they thought of the Allahu Allahu Akbar, as for Hadith jabber that was sent here. It's only in say, a double hottie. And he also reported this hadith and Buhari and his book is a double Morford. And the difference between his book and his sorry, that is audible mo fraud, he did not put a condition in himself to narrate edit the authentic narration. So he narrated a lot of Hadith some of them say authentic, some of them acceptable Hassan, some of them sometimes are weak as well, and others will move forward in his narration. For others in addition, he said, Well, unlimited Murphy and Talca Huckabee watch him 123 of them in Delaware coffee in a big part of
the one of the form of charity is tulpa harkavy watchin help you meet your brother, or your fellow members of society and community with what you can pump any with, with a face with a smiley face 123 of our Mindell Wi Fi in a week, and you will basically pour from your
container or you the bucket that you used to bring the water from the well, you you basically use it to put it in your friends, or your brother's bucket. And let's see, I couldn't do my ofin soda, every single model is a form of charity. So it doesn't mean it doesn't matter this act of goodness is big or small, is consistent or it is one time okay?
If it is in public or in secret, any act of goodness, it will be considered a form of sadaqa what is Alma roof? Goodness, that's how usually be translated. But I want you to understand that the significance of this word in Arabic, Allah roof comes from reefer which is known. Yeah. And he known to others, that it does something good, how things will be known that that is good, how we recognize that this is a good Act, or this is a good thing, by many ways, number one, if it is known to be good by the Sharia, so Islam told us this is a good deed. And Islam told us that our last month Allah said that this is something He rewards you for it, he loves it, he wants you to do it, he
ordered you to do it. Also, things to be recognized that as good is if it is culturally known as something good. So people in the culture understand that this is a nice way. You know, what, maybe, maybe not is known in the culture or there's nothing
specifically mentioned that. Elders, you know, specifically mentioned that older people
sit while the
Need the young stand up in the bus, but culturally non buses are respect Okay, culturally norm that ladies goes first it is culture known as something good and respectful. So, what is people agreed or known among people culturally that is something good. Something people recognize by the nature by the fitrah that it does something good like being truthful, being kind, being nice saying thank you saying sorry, you know,
things of that nature, a sadhaka. It's a form of charity, a sadaqa.
Charity or soda, a soda usually refer to what you get from your wealth, okay. But it was used later on in Sharia, to refer to oil kind of goodness. Can anybody think why?
Why a soda, which is originally used to refer to what you get from your money to others, if it's logic like zeca, or it is recommended, like a soda pot.
So why we use this to refer to all kinds of goodness, because when you give from your money to someone, what that will make that will make that person what feels good, that's right, help that person in, feel more sad. It's an act of basically, kind, kindness and help. And as well as in good deeds, it will make people feel good, it will help people to be better. That's why the call of sadaqa because it is like it even if it's not a materialistic things, but the impact of it can be equal to the impact of money. Some people the smile, that nice words can be more effective than just giving them money.
I like both.
So, but still the act of charity, it calls soda and also because comes from the
being truthful. And that shows you that you should do these kinds of actions with sincerity.
So no matter how Allah said, these acts of kindness, it's called soda. Because it is as if you donate your money as if you are seductively mad, but this time you donate with your tongue, with your smile, with your kindness with your support with your words and so forth. What we learned from this hobby that the act of goodness of so many and there is a variety of act of goodness will matter for our woman hiring for in the lobby. Whatever kind of goodness you do, Allah Subhana Allah knows it very well. Min higher this higher is Nick era.
Any dual remove indefinite which it means all kind of goodness. And an even more powerful than this, for my Yamal mythologies are watching her euro euro. If you do an act of goodness, even as the size of the law, what's the law, the arm, or the master seat, or the head of the smallest end that you can you can think of, that's what I mean, the smallest act of good, you will see that he word of it in the Day of Judgment.
Oof, goodness, what people agree to be something good. And this is something important because in relationships, for example, in marital relationships, last month, I said what I should
do deal with them and what is known to be goodness, sometimes I remember once a couple had a problem about financial responsibilities and stuff like that. And he said, Jeff, what is in the Quran? Allah told me that I have to give her a cell phone.
I said yes. And the Quran says, well actually
what is in the Quran does Allah give me that I should get on our car. I said I wasn't gonna said treat them with Alma which is to be known among people that do something good. And that's how good relationship is good live is. And today, it is part of what is known to be part of the important thing in people's life to have a car as a means of transportation. If you live in a place or on a city where they don't have a public transportation, like, you know, metros, or Underground's, like some cities and some certainly don't like Houston for example, in Texas.
Also cars known to be something that it is needed and cell phones to be used.
and so forth. So this this concept is very interesting of what is to be known as something good.
And this is also when we deal with each other as friends, as employers and employees, as neighbors, anything that is known culturally, in our culture to be something good. It's an act of sada, an act of charity. It is something that benefits others.
So this Heidi from jomi Academy Nabi sallallahu sallam, one of these a Hadith, which is very short, but the meanings that fall under these words, these words, the meanings are so humongous, and so many
this headed, couldn't do much of any act of goodness is an act of church that you do to Muslim or non Muslim, to relatives, or nonetheless, to someone who is righteous, or someone who's faster
to humans, or to nonhumans. Like what, like animals.
And you all remember how Allah subhanaw taala forgive the sin of a woman who was a prostitute, just because she helped a dog and fed the dog.
Also, that act of goodness, include something financial, like I pay somebody debt, I help someone by giving them money
to improve their life, pay them paying the rent, bringing food for them, feeding them or something, not non materialistic things, okay? Likes, make them feel good.
Just just making them feel good. Just listening to them. Just let them know that I'm there for them, making up for them.
Smiling to them, being kind to them, something verbal.
Also, it means act of goodness, my role in things related to religion, and things related to worldly matters. So I teach you how to pray.
It's an act of goodness, me today explaining the Hadith. And this is has to do with the religion or teaching you how to report on.
See, so, also worldly matters. I teach you how to use
Excel sheet, I help you to write a resume. So all kinds of goodness is something that you will be rewarded for it. Where did we get this from? From the word cool, all, all act of goodness might be cool. No, do you see how just one or two words you know, have an incredible amount of meanings, and can cover so many meanings.
Also, all kinds of goodness, you will be rewarded for it, as if you donated from your wealth.
From this hadith we know that benefiting others is not only through money, because sometimes when we talk about helping, like helping a family, helping an individual helping an organization does not necessarily have to be only by donating money. It could be by you know lending a hand or by you know, by supporting them verbally, by making do out for them.
So benefiting others should not be limited only to the concept of money, but you can teach them something that they will benefit from it.
Also, from this hadith we learn that from Allah Subhana Allah has mercy and kindness and generosity, that he opened many doors for acts of charity.
So there are so many doors, AND gates and access to earning to earn good deeds and to earn rewards.
Analysts rather not only that, to open so many doors, he made the access to reward so easy, so accessible, and very possible. So each and every one of us can give, even if I don't have the money, I don't have the wealth. I don't have the knowledge, but I still can earn so much so many so many good deeds.
And that shows you the nature of this Lord of us which is a last minute IRA and the nature of this religion.
That's why it was apparent to Allah made the way to gender so easy and open all these gates for us to gain all these rewards will we learn from this couldn't
Luma wolf in sort of any act of goodness is a form of charity.
This act of charity, since it is sadhaka comes from such truthfulness. We should do it sincerely. But I benefit you because I have a hidden agenda because I have something else on my mind. That's not right.
You know, somebody, see, or go on to help someone. And and then I'm helping you because I want something from you. That's, that's the wrong intention.
Also, from this Hadith, Allah Subhana, Allah puts us on a test into Hannibal Tierra
How's that? What's the where's the test? The test that Allah subhana wa, tada have told us to do,
acts of charity.
And these acts of charity, some of them, you do it with your wealth.
Some of them you do it with your body,
or verbally, some of them by you know, just the support, or making
just being nice and kind and showing your love and care for others. See, what is the test came? What is the test here? The tests that are lots of parents, Allah have made it so easy for everybody. So no one has excuse to say in the Day of Judgment, oh, it was difficult. It was hard. You know, it can give judgments say, Oh, my God, I didn't you know, no, I wish I raised my level. And Jenna, I wish I did. I did this more. So you know, I can be Sir, I can survive in the devil. You know what I was wiped out. I mean, it's so easy for you.
And if you did not increase your good deeds, it is because of you. That's where the test is.
Also, this tells us what Allah said in the Quran, you read the law, who will use that allow one to make things easy for you.
That's why he opened these doors of good deeds.
This Hadith shows us that among the things that ultimate Allah loves so much, and as an illness, that you help others, you benefit others. This is something so loved by Allah. Allah wants us to be good to others, and he reward us for anything, that it will benefit others. So this is something we should always keep in mind, that we don't live for ourselves. We don't only think about ourselves, it is important to improve and empower yourself. But it's also important that you care about others.
This is who I am in our 30s smilla Emerson it's one of the outcome or the result of Allah His name and Merson, what's our Maxim means? That Allah Subhana Allah The one who he basically word others and do good for others.
And also one of his name is Rob. And let the Europe be rebounder, who beneath me who is behind him
that are robbed, it means the one who shower us with his bounties and he gave us so many blessings.
So that's one thing that we should learn from this hadith is to be good to others.
Also, there is another honey comes next, which is an A B that are the Allahu anhu Kala Kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Lata Khurana mineral model fish as well and teleca haka be virgin palk one who Kala Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam either Baba Tamara cotton for axioma What are Gianni Raja Houma Muslim, a Buddha narrated the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, do not consider any act of goodness as being insignificant, even if it is meeting your brother with a cheerful face
without the alarm and narrated that the Messenger of Allah said when you make some soup, make a good amount by adding plenty of liquid water
and give some to your neighbors. These two generations both narrated by Mr. Mr. Mahima allow dad
and in some of the rewired in the honey Leo sunny. My best friend Muhammad wa sallam told me Okay,
yeah, but when you make a soup
Okay, that's good for us these days at home. You know
All men at home you know you can practice that and I mean by this not to give to your neighbor now my point is you can cook he told me about that when you cook yourself so you know I've seen all a lot of Instagrams and a lot of videos going around and how Mashallah men became very good and cooking these days anyway
he said to him salado It was a lamp
when you cook on your make soup make a lot of it so you can give to your neighbors.
and happy Yoshi Mohan in the US the humaneness something insignificant. Don't ever the prophets Allah Allah Allah Allah consider any act of goodness as being insignificant
Okay, Shay anything
then he gives an example by saying even if low
tech the tech lead by the way even if even if it is that doesn't mean when the process solemn said even if it is meeting your brother with a cheerful face, it doesn't mean that he's undermining or being a cheerful is an insignificant thing. No, no. He means like, you don't think about it as something of a big deal. Because it's something natural that you smile at people. So in Ibiza, Saddam's when he said even if it is not to be littering the next point now because people don't pay attention to this point. As it is a form of sadaqa because we do it very often. You know you don't even
sometimes notice it. Especially those who have a smiley face. You know,
those who don't have a smiley face any they need to work on it.
And and one of the most important thing if you ever find someone without a smile, give him one of yours you know as simple as that and if you ever think that you lost your smile, it didn't go anywhere it just right under your nose just smile
he sits alongside them just to meet your friend with a cheerful smile.
We pile poly poly
what poly poly
all these different way of pronouncing the word pulp and Arabic language it means very
cheerful. He said your soup and Morocco Morocco is a very specific type of soup usually referring to the the meat when you cook it in a water so that basically broth that what you call Mara okay
he said you cook your soup Do you cook the soup? No. Which is the moment when you cook you cook your meat so here the process Alan told them to give from that or you cook the bone and basically the water he told them even if you get from the water not from the meat if you notice
because meat is something significant people might think twice about it because they don't have too much meat especially in that time. So now Mr Samson even if he can give them from the meat or you have very little meat, even the water which is cost nothing which is you might look at as something insignificant, sharing it with others. It is a big deal and allows fantasize
any what can we learn from this video number one, this hand he told us about the importance when being having a smiley face. Smile is a very beautiful thing why is smiling as such something that should be accurate for smile does not make you or any only other people's happy but makes you also happy. It sends that message of optimism, of calmness of
you know of good high self esteem.
It opened the door I read once somebody was saying why people like dogs. Why people like dogs so much. You know. And then if anybody knows
the scent, because those who likes dogs, there's all scared of dogs. But those why there's a lot of people like dogs in general because dogs are so good and showing how happy they are to see you. They start wagging their tails and jumping and like so happy waking that makes you so happy that somebody know so happy to see you.
Since we don't have a tail to toy when you see someone what you can how you can tell people that you're so happy to see them by smiling and you immediately feel happy that the other person happy to see you
it bring people closer to one another
this hellish shows you that one of the goals of Sharia is to create a community and society will they love one another, where they smile at one another, where they help one another.
So this has been chosen, this is one of the goals of Sharia.
Also, this heading shows us that making other people happy by smiling at them, it's an act of charity. And also it is something you can make other people happy
without Khalifa and i mean by that it is something easy. It's just a smile it doesn't cost you any money to smile.
It just you know some even smile you don't use too many muscles to smile.
So that's why one of the things that we learn from this study is making people happy it doesn't need to be something you know money and a big deal it can be as simple as just a nice work thank you I love you
You know I'm happy to see you
and by the way I'm happy to see you guys all Sharla
so also this handy shows us that it's important to have this cheerful face which is the colored yes face as well. And if you you remember this as I said it before yes face there is people have yes phase one that yes face means to story behind it
goes back to a group of soldier we're trying to cross the river and
basically one of the soldier was doesn't have a horse and was the river was running so fast. So he looked at that the leader of this squat and he didn't know that this is the general or the president I actually at that time I think it was
I forgot now not on top my head who he is who he was.
But he looked at him and he said Can I ride with you? today Come on in and when you ride with them and they cross the river after that people said hey you put the leaders on dangerous Why did you ride with them?
You know what if the horse couldn't hold both of you that's not why did you do that? Is that a novelty? Is the the general ism skinnier any small soldier he doesn't know then he said the reason I choose him not because I want to embarrass him and make him commit to me as a soldier The reason I asked him because I look at all your faces and the only his face I found was his face. So I asked because every other face is given me that look, you know don't even ask. And I don't know you
you know it's like these days when you see people on the street and they like you know they don't see you because they don't want to come say Salaam or anything because of the Coronavirus you know keeping the distance which is I don't I don't get mad for that I actually appreciate the the social distance but in this fear are like no face. That's not a good face. What do you need? You need a yes face, you know, when you come to that person will say yes.
That's something good. Also, this honey told teach us we should not ever, ever look down at any act of goodness done by us or others. Because sometimes people you know, they look at other people's act of goodness that sent $1 a $10. You can do better than that. You know, that's all we can you can do. Whatever, when people do something good, say 100 law, be happy. Don't ever look at any act of law, condominium or visa. Don't ever look at any kind of act of worship or any kind of act of goodness at something insignificant. You know, I know a church here in our neighbor, neighbor church. You know, all of the do as an end. Not all of them do some of the things they do to the homeless for example,
they do a haircut.
So every month they have a outside a place or like a designated place where people can come and get a free haircut.
you know, don't say Oh, it's insignificant. No, it's nice.
So don't ever look down upon any act of goodness done by you are done by any song by done by someone else.
You don't know one of the benefits from this howdy you don't know which deed will take you
power and assume to teach us this.
How do we know this because the problem is that don't ever see any good deeds as insignificant. Because the one that you think it's insignificant it can be the one that take you two gentlemen, Yanni I asked you by Allah, you think when this man was walking in the road, and he saw a branch of a tree, a tree, fall down a branch, which is his throne, and it was in the road and the way in the in the people's path, and he stopped and he just move it from the people's path to the side of the road.
Allah was grateful for him.
Whether it means a lot grateful for him because Allah will be grateful for you after He forgive your sins. So he got to his sins forgiven. And Allah Subhana Dada rewarded him and made him and I was like I was grateful for him. Do you think when you stop in the road that he just removed move that no piece of metal or the or do you help someone at a flat tire? Maybe that deed will take you to
getting that woman when she you know brought the water to the dock in her mind that that the thing that will take care of two gentlemen, what is the next remote Padma Malik pardon me so solemn in the lab? Luke in kenema la Yuki La Habana and you will know who Bihari Ba La oma pm of Illuminati services.
That in Nabi sallallahu Sallam said, you say a word you don't pay attention to it. And because of that word, Allah subhana wa Taala will make intergender because of that word,
inspire others, so you don't know. And it is so important for us to remember and this helped inspire us to think about good deeds in that manner. You didn't know which one will take you to dinner. So what's the point? The point is to keep doing as much as you can as many as you can, until you meet the most pinata.
We don't know which one of our deeds that it will save us on the day of judgment when I was put the both of your deeds you know, the good and the bad. You didn't know maybe that little one that smile is the one that will raise you a little bit up so you can be survived.
A man in the in the town of the process Allah He said
in Ibiza Salam said, a man was taken to the hellfire. And guess what saved him from the Hellfire
sort of Tabarak came to basically to intercede on that person's behalf just because he was sort of Tabarak
maybe he memorizing so many other sores. But he wasn't expecting that the thing that will take them to Jenna was sort of Tabarak the Sahabi that was Rena canola
is not really sort of bakasana Emraan you might look at something instinct, but he was just reading sort of, sort of
had to summon first the canola and his neighbor said what's this make me late in the night and reading only put all their inhibitions on him said why he's doing that when he was asking because I love the soda and I love the last part of data. Then he was basically loved by Allah because of the soul.
Also remember this when he tells you that a lot smarter reward you and the rewards what will be multiplied so he may be it is one deeds you see but a lot multiply to 10 maybe to 701 deed arrays bad deed in the data set
so that's one of the benefits of why NASA encouraged us to do more good deeds
and agenda levels
so every time you do good deeds your level and didn't go up that's why you should never stop doing as much good deeds as you can and here the HUD is telling you even if it is a smile Even if it is sharing the soup with your neighbors
also this Hamid tells us that higher either
he had eaten in Ibiza Salam para hieronder act of goodness isn't is a is a is a habit. So if you're in the habit of always saying stuff around law, and the habit of always making the cut in the habit of saying things
in the habit of also Salama alikum can imagine how rewarding This is. I know people who struggle to remember to say Salaam article sometimes the kids even sometimes my kids oh yeah salonica they forget they forget to say Mashallah.
We start worrying and instead of saying Mashallah,
it is it is add, it's a good habit, if you adapt and you get to reward.
Also, this hadith tells us that we should do the act of goodness to our neighbors, even with letters, sometimes with neighbors, we think we have to get this fancy chocolate. And we have to, and you know what I care so much about making it so hard. And this from the shape on shape on when it tells you if you want to do something good to your neighbor, or to relatives he make it sounds like you have to do it so perfect. And, and what happened, you didn't do it again, because it's hard to do it. So, but then maybe sometimes making made it so easy, as if it is only just a little bit of extra water to add to the to the meat and there will be a soup why so it'd be easy to do it again
and again and again and again.
this he told us that being good to neighbors, as we talked before previous Ahadi good to neighbors, the neighbor, the neighborhood, the what the home next to your home or the neighbor
at work the neighbor
countries. So, we should take care of neighbor countries. And unfortunately, today we see that sometimes we are so mean and to neighbor countries and not as good as we should be. This hand is also at tell us that we should be in the habit of doing good and not in the habit of doing it without technology without making a burden on us. So you can do more of it.
Also in a sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told
Buddha to add which it means always look, check upon, you know, always look for your neighbors. So it's not a one time event. You know, you give your neighbor something in aid and that's it. Or you know, whenever you arrive to the neighborhood, you know, hey is icon Mashallah and that's it. We don't see each other again. No, it shouldn't be something that we do it consistently. So it shows you that act of goodness should be just a random act. It shouldn't be an act that happen a lot. also attach the word I heard it means that you care
versus you don't care. It doubt means I
remind myself and remind others to look after our neighbors. And especially in these days, guys, especially in these days, we might have a neighbor who is his immune is compromised, we can go to buy food old. You know, shame on me. I was like, you know, there is another Muslim family today was told that a sister who her husband is an Asian Asian brother, and he's not from China actually. But he is actually worried about going out because he might be attacked and because of ignorance. Today, an ignorant people who are attacking people just because they are from Asia or because from China as if they are responsible for you know, the Coronavirus which is very sad to hear that.
And in regard to this, I say we should watch what we say what we publish what we and I should do that as well. Not allowed for any message
can be easily misunderstood and be insensitive to others. The same way we don't like to dive into Muslim we should also stand for our friends and neighbors who are Asian today.
As well as
any one of the things that we can learn from this Howdy. Why the processor said give to the neighbor some random I said because when you cook the meat the smell will travel to the neighbor and if your neighbor is poor, okay? And he smelled the meat he might desire desire it so it's good to share with them and don't let them just feel that they wish or they desire that because of their poverty they can have
that's why even some scholar modern day said if your neighbor let's say in need and there is like barbecue or there is a big feast you have in your house or you know what it will be good thing to share with the neighbor offer them Hey, come on join us Hey, this is some extra food if you guys want to share with us it'll be a nice also, this had eaten on with us today. Teach us that you shouldn't you should not also
When you receive any gift from anyone, you should not see it as something insignificant and you belittling it. That's it.
That's the way that you would that's what you can get me
and I was joking with one brother came to me after he did an operation He brought me a chocolate and I said, Man, this the cheapest chocolate in the in the in the store is to a lot. That's That's not nice. Can you imagine if I'm not joking, I'm just saying or I say to myself,
okay. Or I said to my wife, or my wife told me, oh my god, this will became this gift. They couldn't get the kids better than that.
You can imagine this is very bad. You should be grateful. I'm thankful. It's not about the gift itself. It's about the meaning behind it. So even if it is a soup, not the meat, the soup of the meat, it can be given and it should be received with a good heart.
You see, there are so many things we can learn from this Hadith, but we'll stop here and inshallah tada next Hadith we have a very beautiful Hadith Allah which is talking about a beautiful beautiful
act of worship an act of kindness that we can do to our relatives to our neighbors to our parents and our children and to everyone actually. So looking forward for next week and Charlotte eight o'clock Houston time to cover another Hadith and below Milan, masala Solomon and avian Nabina Muhammad and if there is any question I will take the questions otherwise I will call it for the night.
