Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah what? A woman Wha What about

00:00:12--> 00:00:14

Korea are we on the Facebook

00:00:27--> 00:01:01

today inshallah our class will be regard Hadith Hola. And unsightly the Allahu anhu are part of a lot of sort of lifestyle a lot of audio cillum in the journey to Hawa Luna female Allah He really helped fellow human Now we all know pm affordable Buhari. Hola Han Ansari, Allah be pleased with her, said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said some men acquire a large property such as funds of Muslim States Treasury, as a cat etc.

00:01:02--> 00:01:06

And they will go to hell on the Day of Resurrection

00:01:08--> 00:01:18

acquired a large property it means the take or nor the steel or the US from the money

00:01:19--> 00:01:34

that belongs to Allah subhana wa tada doesn't be money that they're not supposed to touch they're not supposed to use for personal benefit. And nobody saw Salam said they will go to hell on the Day of Resurrection.

00:01:36--> 00:01:41

This Hadith is interesting because we talking about the bad manners and

00:01:42--> 00:01:47

warning people from bad manners and bad character character traits.

00:01:48--> 00:02:20

And one other thing is no doubt one of the worst quality can be in a person stealing especially stealing from the public money you know, and taking properties that don't doesn't belong to them. As well as people who have no conscious or feeling a las panatela when it comes to dealing with the public money with money that it doesn't belong to them.

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

And I met people in my life

00:02:24--> 00:02:42

who would be very careful about the salon about the car I'm about this and this and that. But they are so careless when it comes to the money. They don't care haha allowed not allowed. There is a cheating there's no cheating that is rebellious doesn't matter.

00:02:43--> 00:02:47

Even though you for some of them even might pmla.

00:02:48--> 00:03:20

At some it's RGB and you have seen this as to be very strange. There is people it comes to money. It just out of the equation, the the don't consider the Sheree on the law and the manner, you might see someone who's very nice to you. And you talk and you have good relationships and very, very good. But when it comes to dealing with them in business, all the HELOC is out of the window, the manners and you'd completely see a different person.

00:03:22--> 00:03:40

Hello, that's why model the alarm when somebody said, I know so and so he said you really know he said yes. He said have you traveled with him? Have you did business with him. Because when you do business with someone, you get to know who really they are, what kind of manners they have.

00:03:41--> 00:03:42

So,

00:03:43--> 00:03:58

this Harry talking about another character trait that you should avoid, which is that you deal with the money philosophy in a way which is not lawful by taking from it, misusing it,

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

spending it in the wrong way stealing from it and so forth.

00:04:06--> 00:04:21

So, this head is also very suitable to the previous ahaadeeth. Why? Because the previous talk about rulers and abuse. So we talked about the previous episode about someone who for example, well,

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

anger and what anger will lead to. We talked about physical abuse. And he we talked about verbal abuse of cursing and saying things like that. Now the hudy talk about another type of abuse which is a financial abuse, which is we take people's money, you take money that it doesn't belong to you, especially when this money belongs to the public. And since we've been talking about rulers, and he talked about the alarm and the manners that related to the individual family members, society at large, then he talked about certain

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

Law matters related to the rulers and the people in power. And this is one of it. Because it's known that rulers will abuse the public wealth will abuse the money, while abuse the budget that they have. They mishandled the take from it. We see people who start, Pamela I shall have the line, she said, My father used to be rich until he became a halifa.

00:05:24--> 00:06:08

When he became a Hollywood became poor man, and he doesn't have money anymore. And today, it's the opposite is the guy is poor until he became elected. And until he became power only became power, it became rich, and after before that, they have nothing. It's weird, like when you hear about someone who just started their library, their wealth, because you know, when you go to public office, you have to document all your wealth. And all of a sudden, after six years or 10 years of being in senate and being in Congress and being in Parliament or being empowered, you have $23 million wealth, you know, your salary is just an average salary never going to make that amount of money,

00:06:09--> 00:06:18

where this money came from, you know, somebody became a billionaires, billions and billions and billions of dollars and millions of dollars that they have, where do you get that from.

00:06:19--> 00:06:32

And unfortunately, to hit through history, there is a lot of abuse for the public wealth, is one of the Muslim countries are the richest country in the world, but still Muslims out of the poorest people in the world.

00:06:33--> 00:06:35

It's the richest country in the world,

00:06:37--> 00:06:40

there is more natural resources that you name it.

00:06:41--> 00:06:51

It just to give you an example, see how the corruption is France, France do not have a single a single gold mine.

00:06:53--> 00:06:57

While they have the biggest saving of gold in the whole entire world,

00:06:59--> 00:07:02

definitely more than any European country.

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

And I'm not mistaken worldwide, they have unbelievable amount of gold.

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

While West African countries and Muslim Muslim countries Well,

00:07:16--> 00:07:24

they have gold more than any other places in the world, but yet nothing in their saving nothing the country and from that go.

00:07:25--> 00:07:33

Actually, most of that gold transferred to France. And that's why there is a very critical political relationship between West Africa and France.

00:07:34--> 00:07:43

But the point is, where is these African countries which is wealth, that unbeli amount of wealth, but still you see how poor Africa is

00:07:44--> 00:07:48

in many Muslim countries as well and many countries in Asia and so forth.

00:07:51--> 00:08:08

Anyway, so, this head is very suitable talk is still talking about the rulers and the rights that and the thing that they should be careful from which one of it is to extend their hand to take or to waste the public money. Hola been to case usually we translate or give a little bit of

00:08:09--> 00:08:19

short paragraph before that. Speak the Sahaba who not very well known how long I've been to ice, ignore

00:08:20--> 00:08:43

or fat and unsightly yertle hazaragi to Nigeria sushis from benina. jar, the profits are salams a while the prophets of Salaam uncle's from his mother's side, how she was married to Hamza, the prophets of Salaam uncle, Abner Abdulmutallab, so she was very close to the prophets of Allah. And she had a child from him

00:08:45--> 00:08:50

you know, any level Yeah, Allah wa Mr. And two daughters.

00:08:51--> 00:09:08

Then after Hamza was killed in the Battle of she married to handle a man and she got from him. Mohammed, his son, Mohammed, and she's became known as Ahmed Mohammed, even though he's not the older of her

00:09:09--> 00:09:46

children. Anyway, this hadith reported by Buhari and it has a story and the story goes like this. That said he did not vote he said the whole Navajo that we we visited whole had been to ice she used to be married to Hamza have nabbed him upon him. And now she's married to an American Arjuna sokolniki Nyah, Mohammed, they went to visit this woman. And they said, Yeah, Omar, Mohammed. As I told you, she became known with Mohammed, would you tell us, okay, something that you heard from the prophets of Allah

00:09:47--> 00:09:54

say that it is Tabby successor didn't see the processor. Can you tell us something that you heard directly from the processor.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

So her husband man, looked at her and he said embroidery matters.

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

To have the theme. Be careful before you tell them anything. Be very careful in that haritha and also realize also learn be very receptive chedid don't tell them anything about the prophets of Salaam unless you're 100% sure, because making any mistakes in the Hadith are saying the Prophet said this and that and he didn't say it it's a very serious matter. Got it? Big Somali who had the tomb and Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam demand Pharaoh home for acne while also de la sala worse person I will be if I tell you something about the promises that you might benefit from it, but it is not true and I will not benefit I will get sin because of it. That's worse person I would be no I

00:10:48--> 00:10:57

would never do that. I heard the prophets of Salaam said call a Samaritan there is something called a dounia Javier Ratan Hawa

00:10:58--> 00:11:02

mannahatta melon beheld De La Hoya houfy

00:11:03--> 00:11:24

at dunia this world, how they are not on helwa it is attractive, beautiful, it is sweet. Okay. Whoever earn money in it from a halogen source a lawful way. Allah will bless him and bless whatever he earned.

00:11:25--> 00:11:27

What Obama how women female illa

00:11:29--> 00:11:37

womadelaide also realize also lymphie Masha at Neff Sula, who narrow mo pm and they might be a person who would

00:11:39--> 00:12:11

collect and take and acquire money from the money that belongs to a Lost Planet Allah, which is the public wealth here and something belong to the prophets of Salaam again, this is the state money according to what this to fulfill that so that person fulfill his desires of earning or taking this money such person have in the div. such person will enter Hellfire and the day of judgment will enter her father and the director.

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

And another generation how Allah also said in another incident, she told people the money was mentioned in front of the processor learn wealth and money. Then individual solemn said, the money is attractive. Sweet. Hold on, hold on. Man asaba will be happy he Boudicca fee if you earn the money, and the right way, Allah will bless it. And if you start collecting, according to your desires, from the mouth of the belong to Allah, His Messenger Salalah Solomon taken from the public wealth, and now you in the Day of Judgment going to hell file, there is a word that the processor amused. It wouldn't make sense. If I literally translate to English, he said, yet how we're born a

00:12:58--> 00:13:27

female in law, our whole boon of emanuela enquire, take, but the word you hold is more powerful than just saying in English takes he takes or he collect or enquire? What's your hold? on hold for laterra? It's when when you go to Galveston and you go to the beach, okay? When you walk into the water, especially when it's not cold, how do you walk?

00:13:29--> 00:14:17

Most of the people, they work like this, that's right. Like, you kind of go or you jump into the water. That's right, excited. That's right. You don't walk to the water. Or you when you go to enter water. It's not the same way you enter. You walk in and out, for example, in a workplace, or will you work formerly in the master? That's right, you became more of a curler. And also you come all together when you go to the water. That's right. So that's what the hold really means. hold us luminol hold the for the map when you go and so became a kind of careless, you don't really care, you just you know just having fun and you go inside so the person was trying to say that those

00:14:17--> 00:14:44

people who reach to the wealth like the way you go the water, you know, as if that wealth is the water can it's it's a figure of speech, it's like a metaphor. Can you imagine this is the water is the wealth, okay? And the person just go to it. He just want to get from it as much as they can as you are when you go to the water. You want to dip yourself in it as much as you can. Bill Barton unlawful why

00:14:45--> 00:15:00

they collect this money in an unlawful way. Man Illa Mandela, from the the wealth that belongs to Allah. Why do you think the process I'm reminding us he didn't say the public wealth or the state of wealth. He said the

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

wealth that belongs to Allah to warn you

00:15:05--> 00:15:07

as if you're stealing from Allah directly

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

and the reality is all wealth belongs to Allah even the money that I have in my pocket belong to Allah not only the state money is belong to Allah. That's right.

00:15:17--> 00:15:21

What's the proof that this money in my pocket belong to Allah?

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

Can I use it any way I want

00:15:26--> 00:15:27

as a Muslim?

00:15:28--> 00:15:28

No,

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

I can't.

00:15:32--> 00:15:40

There is halal and haram. I can't take it and purchase alcohol. How long? Can I burn it? I'm not allowed to burn it.

00:15:42--> 00:15:54

You see, can I say this is my money? You know what? I'm going to give my daughter half of my money. And this daughter is not going to get anything on my son gonna take 1% of my wealth. Can I do that? No, I can't.

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

I'm gonna put all my money to my cat

00:15:59--> 00:16:03

to Bulgaria. Oh, my God. Can I do that? No, I can't

00:16:04--> 00:16:45

see that shows you snipped your money you know what is the catch you have to give it is not up to you to say that I'm going to give it I'm not going to give this okay. And you know what I want to give the cat to my cousin. No, it's not up to you. Allah decide who deserve this okay. So the reality is every money every wealth belongs to Allah God. But here he referred to the state money to the public money as a laws and his messengers money why to make you think twice before reaching out to that money and touch it, reminding you that this is the wealth of Allah subhanho wa Taala as if you stealing from Allah, ours if you're wasting the money of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:16:48--> 00:17:06

but some random has said no, actually since the process lm said from the wealth of Allah, the mishandled the wealth of Allah that will include the state money and your personal money too. So in any misused of money based on this hadith is a sin

00:17:08--> 00:17:26

understand because he said mallala so mallala is the state money and also your personal money so any misuse of the money or taking an individual's people or I take your money without cheat you or steal from you that will also include in the heading but

00:17:27--> 00:17:34

that didn't be so solemn said the Legion and men here men or woman doesn't really matter. Just

00:17:35--> 00:18:07

is not specifically only to me, they what we learn from this head is number one felony through that and Yahoo terminal emulator. It weren't the rulers and the people in charge of public wealth is to take from the money of the public or to what is not allowed for them to take or to steal from it or to misuse it. Okay. Also, it includes one more thing that the not allowed to prevent those who deserve that money from receiving it.

00:18:08--> 00:18:16

Any anime charging circuit? And I know for example, at a real incident of a messenger that they came and they asked me

00:18:17--> 00:18:26

they have $5 million Zakat in their account. And they came to me Shall we have in our account? $5 million is the cap.

00:18:28--> 00:18:29

Okay.

00:18:30--> 00:18:34

Okay, I said and how many people poor people in your community?

00:18:36--> 00:18:45

Then he said, actually, most of this money goes to pay for electricity and gas and landscape and

00:18:47--> 00:18:56

we don't? Is it a lie it is. It's a sad. I can tell you that poor people get turned away. No money, no money, no money.

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

And we still collected.

00:19:00--> 00:19:03

Here we have like almost $1 million just

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

over the last three years.

00:19:09--> 00:19:18

It is sad. That's also it how alone. They are misusing the money of Allah subhanaw taala long way because they don't give it to the people who deserve it.

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

To this hand, it shows you that wealth is something respected. A lot of people don't have respect for money. They think it is just nothing. No it is in Islam. It is important. That's why Allah subhana wa tada Giada

00:19:38--> 00:19:59

piano Yeah, and it is one of the reason this wealth is to make you stand strong and stand and independent, as an individual as family as a society. That's why in society, wealth is very important and maybe so someone put a lot of rules or regulation guidelines, how the public worlds should be handled, how should be managed, also family that's why I said

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

MLM is not immune component. If you don't have the money to marry, you should not marry.

00:20:07--> 00:20:15

Because marriage without income is not marriage You have to have the income you have to have the ability to establish a home

00:20:16--> 00:20:36

and for individual individual solemn said to go work with your hand is better than you asked for sadaqa why because you want and maybe some said that the person who Allah subhanaw taala give him wealth and give him money and Allah bless them with knowledge. He is one of the best people in this world.

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

But

00:20:40--> 00:20:53

also shows you that since it is so important element in our life, we should treat it correctly. Three this hadith warn us to misuse and mishandle wealth.

00:20:54--> 00:21:03

It doesn't matter the wealth, your own wealth, your own money, other people's wealth that they trusted you with or the general public wealth.

00:21:05--> 00:21:05

But

00:21:08--> 00:21:15

also this Harry tells you that it is a major sin Minh cabal, nope. Attack the Allah harmattan Amal

00:21:17--> 00:21:53

the sanction sanction for the wealth for other people's wealth. It is forbidden to break that sanctuary or to break that trust. If I trust you the wealth and you miss use it you mishandled or you wasted or you steal from it. This is a major sin a major sin and abuse Allah La Jolla Salaam said layer three Costa Rica heinous Rico moment when a person commit the crime of stealing theft in the theft when he is stealing is not a moment.

00:21:54--> 00:22:12

And it's not true believers or at that point his Eman and his faith and his belief in the permeation of stealing is not there is not there. So this is basically one of the

00:22:14--> 00:23:06

howdy that shows you it is a major sin when I enter Hebrew new button that I shut off your phone unnecessarily heavy absorb Amina into Heba movement, what I do, I do come here in a real movement for yakety Yak and also when a person still from the public wealth or the war booties, the money that you collect after work after the after war, which belong to the public would somebody take from that? It is also not is not a moment when he is doing that. In Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and soon epidote Abu huraira said hurricane Emma and Abby Salama haber went through the process to hyper factor Halla. Alena were able to conquer haber feram nominum. They haven't wala worry. We did not

00:23:06--> 00:23:21

come back with any gold or silver. Why? Because they made a deal with the people of hyper honeymooner mata our parama CFO what we got we got to we got close. We got you know some

00:23:23--> 00:24:03

goods you know, nothing much to Montana Eduardo rasulillah salam Abdullah, hula hula hula Judo minja Damn you the artifact of museum and bendable babe Farah manzanilla the karma Abdul rasulillah salam hello hello for for romea v Sam. For canopy he had four individuals along with the with him at that time. A servant. Okay, a slave server who was with us and when we came and settled in the valley, one of the machine shot an arrow and basically killed that slave.

00:24:04--> 00:24:18

We said honey allow Shahada Wow, Lucky him. It's just one arrow hit only one person that person and he died as a Shahid then in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no he is not.

00:24:19--> 00:24:31

He is not somebody who just was killed. He's in the army of the Muslim killed by the hand of the kafala machine. He is there to defend the process Allah and individuals that is not

00:24:34--> 00:24:44

enough so Mohammed in Beardy, I swear by the one my soul and his hand which is a lot in a sham letters Allah table Allah Hinata Ahava homina him, let me see them to see

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

what this person did. He took just a piece of cloth. Just a piece of cloth. He took it you know without declaring it

00:25:02--> 00:25:11

Basically steel is stole that piece of cloth in the piece of solemn said it is like a fire around his neck around his body

00:25:13--> 00:25:17

for fuzziness, people became scared

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

and all of a sudden start people bring it jasola By the way, I took also this pair of shoes you also love this sandal by the way I took it to only one one sandal not to just one I didn't know I thought I can just keep it

00:25:36--> 00:25:44

people became scared that individual solemn said a sandal made of fire, a pair of shoes made a fire

00:25:45--> 00:25:46

if you kept it

00:25:48--> 00:25:59

everything you should be declared even as a small as this. Can you imagine this man? This is someone took from the public, public wealth what pair of shoes sandal,

00:26:00--> 00:26:01

a piece of cloth.

00:26:03--> 00:26:06

And it's fire on any on his body in his grave.

00:26:07--> 00:26:20

And that's a Mujahid that's a person dies, Shaheed that's a person with the profits on them as a hobby. What do you think of those people who took the taking the public money today is going to happen to them

00:26:21--> 00:26:42

very happy. Individual Salam said he basically misuse this wealth, or spending it in an unlawful way. So that means you're allowed to use the public money you are allowed to spend from it, you're allowed to use it but in the in the in the Right Way, the Truth for the right reason.

00:26:44--> 00:26:55

If you've been trusted with the money for your for, let's say your uncle died and your cousins are young, and you've been trusted with their wealth, some orphans, some friends,

00:26:57--> 00:27:01

a wife, her husband died, and he left money as an inheritance for his sons.

00:27:03--> 00:27:05

The wife is responsible to take care of that money.

00:27:07--> 00:27:18

You know, you became in charge of that budget or the mustards or organization, that's a public wealth, how you handling and how using it, it is a serious manner.

00:27:22--> 00:27:22

Also,

00:27:24--> 00:27:34

in every cell allow an evaluation sallam, and one of the ratio of atomism said those people in the linear the whole world for that matter, those who will basically

00:27:35--> 00:27:41

Feel free to deal with the money and take from it and misuse it. Allah Kennedy akula Ashima

00:27:42--> 00:28:04

he will end up like the one who keeps eating and never gets satisfied. And in other words, if you are used to steel once, you're going to do twice and three and four and five and six. If you miss handle the money you will have you open this door, it will be a habit. You will not stop at something small or big. That's when everyone was strict, even with a pair of shoes,

00:28:05--> 00:28:08

because if you open this door, it will not close.

00:28:13--> 00:28:14

And at the same

00:28:15--> 00:28:29

time, also, Enderby salatu salam told us that or we can learn from this hadith stealing from the the money which is the Muslim earn out of after a war. It is how long it is how long

00:28:32--> 00:28:36

and there is many Hadith in relation to this concept.

00:28:37--> 00:28:38

Showing that

00:28:39--> 00:28:46

stealing even as much as Durham or Dr. Herman or taking Durham, which is one small amount of silver, okay.

00:28:48--> 00:28:53

was the reason for the processor not to pray in someone because he took a devil home of

00:28:55--> 00:29:01

the city, Dr. rasulillah jasola. Please pray he said no, he's tall. And I'm not going to pray on him.

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

Because of that the Scheffer of Mohammed was not given to him as a punishment for him to take just a term from the public's wealth

00:29:22--> 00:29:31

among the manifestation of the mishandling of public wealth number one, to spend the money on yourself and your own leisure.

00:29:32--> 00:29:40

They when they hear for example, about a people who use public money like a donations money I probably

00:29:42--> 00:29:44

and they live in the United States, okay.

00:29:45--> 00:29:47

And some of them outside of that.

00:29:48--> 00:29:53

The common they travel from overseas, the Board of this organization

00:29:54--> 00:29:56

on a first class whether

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

they come to America

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

And they have a board meeting. Where is the board meeting?

00:30:05--> 00:30:08

The five star hotels in Honolulu, and Hawaii

00:30:12--> 00:30:13

for no reason.

00:30:14--> 00:30:22

And it's not like those people poor. They're like very wealthy, but still won't pay for it is the general public wealth.

00:30:26--> 00:30:31

spending her somebody came and asked me a question in one of the Muslim country.

00:30:33--> 00:30:37

Okay, I just I want you to imagine the amount of waste

00:30:39--> 00:30:48

is a chip. That is a very fancy hotel to Hilton Hotel. Six star seven star so crazy cuz it's like above average.

00:30:49--> 00:31:04

He said, I asked the ruler of that country to give me a, you know, an exceptions to stay there for the two weeks or something like that. And the rule will cover the expenses like the government will pay for me.

00:31:05--> 00:31:09

Okay, so I write Okay, the government he knows someone, Okay, no problem.

00:31:10--> 00:31:14

So you see what, what some of my friends do. And I want to ask what's Hello, hello.

00:31:16--> 00:31:22

told me to do that is it my friends do the same thing. But when we go to the hotel, they never check out.

00:31:25--> 00:31:52

So he goes stay three, four or five days to three weeks. Then he goes back to his hometown. And stays. Two months later he comes back. And he has still the room in his name. And he stay for about two three weeks. Why? Because if you check out he has to apply for another letter. And it takes time and there is possibility they will not give it to him. So they don't check out they keep the tab open.

00:31:55--> 00:31:57

So he asked him he says hello.

00:32:00--> 00:32:05

I said to him heavy. It is not helpful. The first three, four days that you stayed.

00:32:09--> 00:32:29

And the first 445 days that they give it to you is not there. It's not their money they giving you from the government from the but from the wealth of the people. That's Haram. But just so using this money for personal use for friends, for family members, always not a lot.

00:32:31--> 00:32:42

Also, sometimes the public wealth, our spend it on things that are not is no benefit from it. Actually, there's more harm.

00:32:44--> 00:32:56

In Mr. Abdul Aziz, when he became the halifa, they told him we need this hundreds of 1000s of pieces of gold to basically make a new curtain for Kava.

00:32:57--> 00:33:24

Every year we spend that amount of money to make a new curtain. Then he said no, I'll prefer to spend that money to cover the body of so many hungry naked young men and women around the world who don't have enough money to buy cloth in the winter. I would like to cover them not to cover a cabin. Kara has one hamdulillah I don't need to give back at every class level happy and sad in area Bulli.

00:33:27--> 00:33:41

It is sad when you see that they bring in some countries singers and and models and artists. And they give them millions and millions and millions and millions and millions of dollars.

00:33:42--> 00:33:51

And we spend all that money amount of money. And when it comes to helping the poor, the poor in that print in the same country or around them.

00:33:53--> 00:33:58

The refugees and the people displaced because of war around the world it is it turns

00:34:01--> 00:34:05

when you hear that somebody in a country where poverty is so noticeable.

00:34:08--> 00:34:20

They will spend for example, a $30,000 just to purchase a red carpet for the person to walk on it. When it comes out of $30,000 for carpet.

00:34:21--> 00:34:23

for one minute thing.

00:34:24--> 00:34:31

While they have 1000s of people don't have even $30 a month

00:34:33--> 00:34:40

when you spend that money on parties and leaders while there is necessities are missing.

00:34:41--> 00:34:43

Where's the education, health.

00:34:45--> 00:34:48

providing food and shelter for people is not there.

00:34:52--> 00:34:53

It hurts.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

Also, when you spend money

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

Look, I was so offended. I'm not I think this is an annual tradition in America.

00:35:07--> 00:35:09

But I was so offended

00:35:10--> 00:35:17

when I saw the turkey that we the president burden every year to Turkey every year.

00:35:18--> 00:35:29

You know, prior to that they were chicken in a hotel, in a luxury hotel, a five star hotel? Have you seen this? Do you know that there is a hotel next to the bringing them in the news?

00:35:30--> 00:35:56

And, you know, it's like a full hotel, like a suite, like a presidential suite. They let the two turkeys in this production suite for a couple of like hours or whatever or a day, you know, because they bring them from another state usually. So the chicken and the treat them royal because the President will What kind of nonsense is that? Come on, I'll take you to you know, downhill craft.

00:35:59--> 00:36:00

However, they take you to Pasadena.

00:36:03--> 00:36:06

However, take you down to the fifth floor downtown.

00:36:09--> 00:36:14

How about have take you to Philly or to DC just down the road from the White House.

00:36:15--> 00:36:21

And you see the people who have, you know, dying because they don't have shelter and basis.

00:36:23--> 00:36:24

Wasting.

00:36:26--> 00:36:28

government money is unbelievable.

00:36:30--> 00:36:34

We spend 50 we spend $85

00:36:35--> 00:36:36

million

00:36:37--> 00:36:40

on unfinished hotel and capital

00:36:42--> 00:36:47

Lalo if it's if it's siani if it's Paris, it will not be $85 million.

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

And it's not even furnished.

00:36:52--> 00:36:55

That's another way of taking the public wealth.

00:36:56--> 00:37:00

There is a cover all we building you know, a hotel.

00:37:04--> 00:37:17

You know, in our government, we spend over 55 billion with B billion dollars preserving outdated technology every year.

00:37:21--> 00:37:22

Useless

00:37:26--> 00:37:29

1.4 billion

00:37:30--> 00:37:33

to expand the trolley of San Diego

00:37:37--> 00:37:44

1.2 million researching the social habits of monkeys

00:37:49--> 00:37:50

as what you call monkey business.

00:37:59--> 00:38:00

You know

00:38:04--> 00:38:11

there is hundreds of buildings which is something interesting owns by that Veteran Affairs.

00:38:12--> 00:38:14

Part of the Veteran Affairs in NC State.

00:38:16--> 00:38:25

We spent over 170 $5 million to maintain these properties which is completely abandoned for decades.

00:38:27--> 00:38:33

Some of them I saw picture I was doing a little bit reserved are the place for druggies and like

00:38:37--> 00:38:47

1.8 million of us taxpayer dollars went for museums for neon signs in Las Vegas Nevada.

00:38:51--> 00:38:54

That's just crazy. I can go and by the way, that's an American

00:38:56--> 00:39:06

if I talk about Egypt, for think about Saudi Arabia if we talk about Yemen if we talk about like you know that's another ballgame as nobody even count there

00:39:09--> 00:39:36

it's a sad and I have to say that he deserved that with all the reservation but I have to give it to the to the governments that Arabia you know that the the new government they It's unbelievable. Unbelievable to hear how much money they collected from just several individual billions and billions and billions of dollars from handful people because it's money was taken.

00:39:40--> 00:39:47

It's the amount of wasting money. Our friend of mine, okay, he's a he's a contractor

00:39:48--> 00:39:56

shefali there is a big university in reality at call Nora University. So it's a woman University.

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

So he took a project in it. Okay.

00:40:01--> 00:40:22

He He took the project he bid on it he got the bid then what he did, he gave it to a subcontractor just a young guy who's Pakistani I think at that time he made a deal with him. So these that's how it works so every square foot by square foot let's say so he sold them the square foot for at 12 rails

00:40:24--> 00:40:37

12 euros Okay, he got the bed to be what 28 rails? So he get $28 for every square foot. He sell it to the subcontractor for 12

00:40:38--> 00:40:41

Okay, and so how much he makes for every square foot

00:40:43--> 00:40:46

$15 just he's sitting home doing nothing.

00:40:48--> 00:40:50

I said how can you do that? He said what?

00:40:51--> 00:41:00

Do you know how much the square foot was sold originally? Like from the government to the tub guy? He said I am here

00:41:02--> 00:41:12

how much he got it 20 $500 remember? Okay 25 Oreos? How much the square foot was up here 860 or something like that?

00:41:16--> 00:41:22

From 800 or $700 that some crazy number like that all the way to seven to 25

00:41:26--> 00:41:26

all the way down

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

as crazy

00:41:32--> 00:41:33

as crazy

00:41:36--> 00:41:37

it's just unheard of.

00:41:38--> 00:41:41

That's why I fully support that no

00:41:43--> 00:41:55

work in the corruption and that it's been going on until the Gulf areas in that that area it is something 100% I know of everybody knows it

00:41:57--> 00:42:01

how many how can you This is the wealth of the people

00:42:05--> 00:42:10

the saddest part is not this this is bad but there's worse than that.

00:42:11--> 00:42:19

Which is what I hear sometimes of how the wealth of the communities are wasted to

00:42:20--> 00:42:41

the money is wasted of the donations of the AF mcwhinney Here for example and what what people donated $300,000 to up then I hear that this $300,000 there is $100,000 of it gone because they were putting in stocks

00:42:43--> 00:43:15

without permission without telling people by the way your money isn't in stocks or anything and it's not any stocks This is a stock we all have almost organization we don't have any clearly but I mean so many organization but when you put an invest in the stock you don't lose you put it in a certain you know a portfolio that guarantee almost any you don't even if you lose this base it fluctuate no no I'm talking about the stocks that the type of of trade that you can lose everything it's like gambling

00:43:19--> 00:43:21

How can you allow yourself to do that?

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

In one of the Muslim

00:43:26--> 00:43:33

conferences we got a comedians a comedians here in Houston

00:43:35--> 00:43:42

but Dorian is not from Houston. This comedians paid a quarter million dollars

00:43:45--> 00:43:48

to show up for less than 60 minutes

00:43:52--> 00:43:56

almost a quarter almost $250,000

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

as public well.

00:44:04--> 00:44:18

This organization I donated for it before we support when they did that the call me I still remember in such a hurry. By the way there is a there's a pledge no you guys have for us I said I have nothing for you.

00:44:19--> 00:44:24

Actually if you can bring me $2,000 I gave you three years ago I would love that

00:44:26--> 00:44:27

Why? I said you don't deserve it

00:44:32--> 00:44:35

I don't trust this money when it go I donated for a specific reason.

00:44:37--> 00:44:38

It does suck

00:44:42--> 00:44:46

it does suck when you hear that this is a waste of the money.

00:44:47--> 00:44:50

We raised money for example for the hurricane you remember.

00:44:53--> 00:44:56

Yeah, so this money people have crazy idea about

00:44:58--> 00:45:00

one guy said hey, we want to use

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

response for business, the tea is doing

00:45:06--> 00:45:08

humble ly. And at least we have decency, you know?

00:45:12--> 00:45:17

It just sometimes. And I say this

00:45:20--> 00:45:22

because I wanted to be on record.

00:45:27--> 00:45:29

I noticed also some of

00:45:30--> 00:45:43

people just define for themselves, the mishandle of the public money, that they take it and be directed to their own groups to their own job or to their own political agenda.

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

And unfortunately, that's very sad.

00:45:48--> 00:46:06

On a very high salaries and, and all this kind of stuff. And it's a very, very, his be very, very club kind of this is my people, this is my group. This is unfortunately, there is an unbelievable amount of sometimes have mishandled the money when it comes to this area.

00:46:08--> 00:46:19

public money is serious. And when you hear for example, also a muscle organization, or some organizations like if you call them the one who help the people like

00:46:22--> 00:46:35

relief, like relief organizations and stuff like that, when you hear that 70% any 70 cents in the dollar goes to the organization and 30 cents goes to the poor.

00:46:37--> 00:46:38

There is something serious here.

00:46:39--> 00:46:53

I'm not, I'm not against, I understand that there is an amount will go from the dollar that you donate to the organization. That's understandable. That's 100% understandable. But 70%

00:46:54--> 00:46:55

It's a big question mark.

00:46:56--> 00:47:14

Another example of wasting the money, by the way 100 likes, so the vast majority, I don't want you to lose trust and most organization, but I want you to verify and to make sure that you know 100 others lot trusted people a lot, this is percentage. It is even if it's 1%, it's still not good.

00:47:18--> 00:47:37

And that's one of the things I underlined this mustard whenever we allow someone to fundraise or we donate to organization, we became way, way way in the last three, four years. Verify in a very, very, sometimes strict way to ensure that this is to ensure that we support the organization who cares about things like that. Anyway.

00:47:39--> 00:47:49

You need to move on quickly. One of the things that also wastes This is the public wealth is or the wealth that belonged to Allah, Allah when Allah trusted you with that your orphans money,

00:47:51--> 00:48:05

okay, or your wife, her mom or her money, and he didn't care for that. And he wasted it and you misuse it and mishandled your work. So where's the saving? Oh, just you blow it.

00:48:06--> 00:48:16

Also another format, which is sad, those who take people's money to invest it? He said, Hey, shut up. Everybody can even give me

00:48:19--> 00:48:40

100,000 and you give me a 50,000 and you give me 10,000 and I will go do deal for you. And you know what he's not It's okay. If you lose the if you lost the money. You do your due diligence and you lost the money. No, he takes the money and he doesn't have a clarity. He work in an area it's not his field, have no experience. And as we said earlier,

00:48:42--> 00:48:44

he's learning in our money.

00:48:45--> 00:48:51

part in w sallallahu sallam, men are the Amal and ness, wah wah line of

00:48:52--> 00:49:05

Allah yo Raja, when I take money from you, and I know there is a good possibility you will not have a back. Luckily, Allah hassayampa will meet Allah as a thief, even though I took it with your permission,

00:49:06--> 00:49:08

but I deceive you, I played you.

00:49:13--> 00:49:16

This study shows you that

00:49:18--> 00:49:19

your Muslim brother,

00:49:20--> 00:49:21

Tom for you

00:49:23--> 00:49:24

to harm them

00:49:25--> 00:49:26

verbally,

00:49:27--> 00:49:31

emotionally, physically, and financially.

00:49:36--> 00:49:40

And this just shows how the Sheree I care about to protect you from all

00:49:41--> 00:49:43

the society at large.

00:49:44--> 00:49:59

We should care for that public wealth isn't the end of the day that the strength of any country of any civilizations is directly linked to its strength and an economy before the strength in the military strength.

00:50:01--> 00:50:11

Russia's military might might rush outcomes to the military, we all know but what does make Russia is not a

00:50:13--> 00:50:16

any the strongest country in the world is a kind of

00:50:17--> 00:50:22

country like Japan is one of the main player in the world because Germany

00:50:23--> 00:50:24

is not the

00:50:25--> 00:50:37

the army is the size of their economy America. America by the way, what's making America dominate the world is because what we have 25% of the trade of the world here, the economy, the world.

00:50:39--> 00:51:16

It just that's what to give a strength to the to the country. So that's why and Islam put all these like, warned from misusing mishandling, Miss stealing from the public wealth, and we should be careful when we deal with that. May Allah subhanaw taala to protect all of us, and to forgive me, whatever mistakes or mishandling that we have ever done. And I hope don't hold any. Don't be too angry at some of the organization or some of the example that I give, but this is reality. And I think I think

00:51:17--> 00:51:21

we're mature enough to deal with it maturely. You know, and

00:51:24--> 00:51:28

I said at the end of the day under the vast majority of people are are good

00:51:30--> 00:51:34

I'll leave those in questions otherwise we'll call for the night in Charlottetown

00:51:37--> 00:51:38

yeah

00:51:49--> 00:51:52

so maybe some of them did not pray john as on the person who

00:51:54--> 00:52:05

took something from the public wealth or from the word Buddhist and he said you pray on him so that means it's a lot somebody has to pray but the leaders and stuff like that No.

00:52:07--> 00:52:16

Because let's say somebody's known to be a drug addict and drug dealers and stop very bad person and die

00:52:18--> 00:52:24

You know, maybe it was not most suitable thing for the Imam and the leader of the community makes a lot it's almost

00:52:27--> 00:52:31

is like I also people need to know that this is like

00:52:32--> 00:52:36

like I remember incident somebody came to me and

00:52:38--> 00:52:42

a woman that she wants to marry a non Muslim guy.

00:52:43--> 00:52:46

Nice said I can't do in Islam, you're not allowed to marry a non Muslim.

00:52:47--> 00:52:50

She said no, you have to marry me to him.

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

I said okay.

00:52:53--> 00:52:56

You can marry him in the court but not here. Should I'm suing you

00:52:58--> 00:53:02

have money and position on those on those. She was very, very rude actually.

00:53:03--> 00:53:04

I said no.

00:53:05--> 00:53:08

I she got angry at me. She loved them. She was like,

00:53:10--> 00:53:25

she didn't another mustard. They did the same thing. A about less than a year and a mustard call me and he said, Jeff, you remember this? And he reminded me of the lady. I don't remember her name. said Yeah. He's a chick. She died. She passed away.

00:53:26--> 00:53:30

And her family brought her to the mustard for soldier not

00:53:31--> 00:53:32

her husband was non Muslim.

00:53:35--> 00:53:37

Should I should we pray Jenna's on her ama?

00:53:42--> 00:53:44

I said yes. She's a Muslim.

00:53:46--> 00:53:49

I suppose let them pray. But as an Imam out in prayer,

00:53:50--> 00:53:52

to make to make lessons to people.

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

Somebody can openly is not like a hidden sin openly and challenging. And she's made a lot of noise after that.

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

And never repented from that. never apologize for that. You can pray in the back on her you and your family.

00:54:10--> 00:54:10

And that's a lesson.

00:54:12--> 00:54:18

Once I was in one community, I know so embarrassment, I was like in the midst of a hope of drama.

00:54:20--> 00:54:24

And the Imam talked about somebody who died, he committed suicide

00:54:27--> 00:54:58

and was not wise at all talk about the suicide that killed herself and you know, and he attacked her husband because she had a fight of the husband and she killed us all because of family problem. You don't do that you're not you don't know what's happening, you know, mentally not stay whatever is the issues. After all this drama. He goes on the microphone and he said shefali please. You are our leaders. You're a man visiting us. You can lead us all the generals on her

00:55:00--> 00:55:09

Would you put me in the problem here your community right I'm not part of your community I don't anyway I got out of it I said no

00:55:10--> 00:55:22

I need at that point you cannot say anything you but but it's not wise is it defeats the purpose the purpose why the person left this because until now we talk about it so you know what you don't steal

00:55:23--> 00:55:34

and I know and mentor I refuse to pray at somebody because he didn't used to pray I refused and his uncle man is Mashallah seven feet by 30 feet

00:55:35--> 00:55:42

yeah and huge guy like this wall he came in he almost like like Star fight with me

00:55:44--> 00:55:48

the brother of the disease and I said I'm not gonna pray you guys pray

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

his son told me Charlie It was tough

00:55:57--> 00:55:59

but my uncle for the first time in my life

00:56:00--> 00:56:08

first on my life I heard him saying about something maybe we should pray because if we don't pray the Imam will never pray on us.

00:56:11--> 00:56:12

He said I just want you know

00:56:14--> 00:56:21

sometimes you leave that just to zero but if you know that if you do it it will not benefit anyone

00:56:22--> 00:56:38

or you are no one yeah nobody really that's profits are solid This is like interpreting but you know what what do you wish you knew nobody cares nobody cares and last Los Angeles nobody knows who I am maybe my master people knows I am but and other community oh

00:56:39--> 00:56:45

yeah and if this guy didn't give me that titles blob louder pray but because he's all share

00:56:47--> 00:56:57

comments so if you have to balance that he or Oba it's it's a part of you have to apply when you think it works. Maybe I'll muscle hard enough center

00:57:00--> 00:57:22

and by the way, a lot of people like commit suicide no because they're angry at the law so many of these because of mental health issues. And those people there is nothing wrong with preying on them doesn't. It's not like the same rule as the people who commit suicide as an angry and he doesn't want he'd have no patient por la sobre la vida de la that's different. The one who has mental issues just a sick person.

00:57:24--> 00:57:29

Not not capable of making the right decision. May Allah protect all of us. Like said I like her
