00:10:36--> 00:10:48

And maybe you sell a low value item alayhi wa sallam also said, it will be better for you to go to the forest, and chop some woods and sell them as a word for fire like a firewood,

00:10:55--> 00:11:45

and be yourself allowed to sell them in many ahaadeeth he encouraged us to be a people who make our own living, and also to be people not just because, you know, to live off government assistance and live off welfare and well, because not only about setup, it's about the concept, that you earn your money and you make your own wealth. And not only to be just person who received but also the person who can open doors for others, and starting businesses that can help others and abuse Allah Allah to send them when he put the companions together. When the Mahajan came and an unsolved, we're welcoming them. He gathered together a man by the name side of Nairobi and Ansari, and Abdul Rahman,

00:11:52--> 00:12:00

But I'm Dr. Martin Alvarez, not a socialist, not a Marxist, not a communist,

00:12:01--> 00:12:03

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

00:12:07--> 00:12:17

No, he knows the importance of earning. And he said dulany Allah, SoCal Medina, just show me where is the market.

00:12:20--> 00:12:30

I don't want to make it too political. But that's what we call small business owners. Today in modern language, when a person starts his own

00:12:31--> 00:12:43

business, this entrepreneur are the one who really make the society. And I have so much respect for so many individuals in our community who started their business.

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

And, you know, I know for example, physicians who came here not long time ago, I saw them when they first arrived.

00:12:54--> 00:12:59

And they were just employees. And now they have their own clinics.

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

I see people came as a Busboys and you know, cleaning dishes, and now the own businesses, people who start as just, you know, excuse my language, a geek, send it guy who really in one of these offices behind the scenes, and now he has a business that he runs and he make, you know, he have two three employees work for him.

00:13:29--> 00:13:52

I know people will start small, and now they have business, a bakery business online, in our community from this community. I seen people hamdulillah they came maybe they don't have the best education. They start the gas station, they start a mechanic shop, they start they start their life. And it didn't come easily. It came with hard work.

00:13:53--> 00:13:55

Some of them maybe

00:13:56--> 00:14:17

succeed more than others, but all of them are something that they shouldn't be proud of and we as a community should be proud of them and support them. So in an MMO, Rahim Allah, Masha Allah Freeman Julissa Beatty of E Beatty, oma STD. Well, Carla, she and Rahul in la de la

00:14:18--> 00:14:21

Madhava. Rajan jehlen. In

00:14:22--> 00:14:43

was asking about someone who said in the message said or the home said, you know what Allah would provide for me? He said, there's an ignorant person. And omotola answered it perfectly. Remember the alarm is a group of people sitting in the back of the semester doing nothing. He said stay get out of the most go look for a job. In the summer Allah 20 Robin was

00:14:45--> 00:14:52

very famous statement. He said that rain that comes from the cloud, never going to be gold or silver.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

You know, a lot of people think that you know what, you're just gonna get money to get rich for within with no effort.

00:15:01--> 00:15:47

I stoled about a it's a joke but it's expressed some attitude that comes, you know, from a weird culture that this culture of you know, thinking that you just gonna be rich with very little effort. And I always say to people, the only time a found success comes before work and dictionary and real life doesn't come before that. You work hard and you earn success. So they said these guys came to New York from somewhere in the world thinking that you know what an America This is the land of opportunity, you're going to find money everywhere. And they are in JFK Airport. So they sell this dollar bill on the ground. Then he bought to reach out his friends he said no, no, that is five and

00:15:47--> 00:15:56

10 out just leave it he thought that there is like money in the streets he can gonna just pick it up from anywhere. That's not how alive is.

00:15:58--> 00:16:12

Anyway in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that birds comes out from their nest, empty stomachs, but the gum out of their nests, they look for the food, they look for what they can provide for their, you know,

00:16:14--> 00:16:17

for themselves and for their maid.

00:16:19--> 00:17:04

They do the effort and a lot provide for them. So you have to put an effort in order for you to receive the results. Ken has a DVD messaged me every Sophie audibly for Canada who Omar Assad is 70 and Ines jaquan, Aswan le de Nicola kurama, Accra madikeri Omar fonzi DBMS no matter the Allahu and starting a farm building a farm from himself starting a small business. Then Mr. said you doing the right thing. You don't need people when you have your own money, you don't have your own business, and you became honored and respected. And maybe your salaria sentence companions that 10 famous companions that came in and if 10 people are given the gladdening of Jannah could allow him to jump

00:17:05--> 00:17:47

all the 10 from Abu Bakar to the last one of them. They were businessmen. The owner of businesses, Chateau de la Hannah, she said kindness how Rasulullah Rahman unfussy him the prophets of Salaam companion used to own their own businesses. And unsolved aha Luna healing was the answer. He used to have farms and used to grow vegetables and and dates and things of that nature. What am Ohio June 180, gelato subtable as well, and in muhajir, who are the businessmen a soft swap literally means the people of the hustle and bustle. Also go in and make that basically man

00:17:49--> 00:17:50

Romero De La Hoya and we

00:17:51--> 00:18:36

always encourage people to earn and to work. Bulava, helva, Surya, Kalani Rajan, any arakata boo boo Masha I am in Iraq after the Masters said I want to see you in the market making your money motivated love to see you staying late in the mustard, not seeing the mustard for the obligatory prayer that's a must. But he said extra time you spend in making your money and doing it is basically better than doing no money no and no earning and you're just spending all your time you know, in the midst and then this day is not know people go to mustard A lot of people don't go work. When they do. Unfortunately, we have many examples. People go play games,

00:18:37--> 00:18:46

and they want their wives to support them. Or they want the social service to give them money or when the domestic to help them or just begging on the street.

00:18:48--> 00:18:49

And that's sad.

00:18:50--> 00:18:55

bluesoleil Amanda dharani he said they said about the Indian and make

00:18:56--> 00:18:57

Ohio okay.

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

When I can

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

pick for resume as a matter of

00:19:04--> 00:19:14

being a righteous person. That doesn't mean that you stand up late in the night and you pray a lot and somebody else feeding you, your father supporting you, your family member giving you

00:19:16--> 00:19:22

and taking care of you. No, that's not our righteous person is is the person who earned his own money.

00:19:25--> 00:19:32

I'm proud of these young men that sometimes when I go to the mall, and I see them working while they're doing their college,

00:19:33--> 00:19:42

I'm proud to see people who try hard to be to be independent and not to ask for help, even from the closest people to them.

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

Possibly Massoud in the law crew and other rajala feriha Laffy Emery Dini he went after me leetonia worse person is to the loser, guys, the one who not in doing not in religion, not Indonesia wasting his

00:20:02--> 00:20:05

described, may Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw

00:20:06--> 00:20:10

taala according to mostofa esto pero

00:20:16--> 00:20:19

al hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala Milena, ba Ba, da da.

00:20:21--> 00:20:31

I would like in the few minutes left for me quickly to share with you some points that I hope it will be beneficial. Because starting a business today became very

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

possible, even if it's not in the same sense of business that we familiar with like opening a store, even if it's something like investing online and the stocks and halon and things that's a form of investment. You know, the investment today, it's a huge opportunity. I know a brother, a friend of mine, his father came from India, but retired. But his father is not used to sit like that. So he starts with his father, a small business. two items, one kind of high end quality item that he sells on Amazon. It's like 35, seven is $37. And another one like cheap like $5 or $7. And is it just gonna make my father busy?

00:21:22--> 00:21:25

I started the business open the account for him and he starts selling

00:21:26--> 00:21:39

you know, his father an average he make 1300 1400. Sometimes less, sometimes more, especially in high season, make sometimes $5,000 in the high season, the Christmas did

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

I just do it

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

on my father handler feels so dignified because he makes his own money. He's old man. He doesn't spend. But he said I don't want to live off my son's.

00:21:52--> 00:22:05

So things can be simple, more, more, eat more any easy and accessible than many people think. But a lot of time The problem is that we say we don't have money. I don't know, where's my salary go?

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

Where's the salary gone? You know, that's the big question that we always ask. Either we ask ourselves or our spouses ask us.

00:22:16--> 00:22:43

I think if you do have this issue, your first point, if you want to change this to be able to have a good control over spending, and I talked about this and many weeks ago, and especially hopefully you can go back to it. But what I think it's so beneficial to remind ourselves. Number one, make sure that if you have a spending problem, admit your problem. A lot of us

00:22:45--> 00:23:20

it's a map, we're going to about to say it's not true, what I'm going to state right now, it's not a true, it's a myth, okay? Don't be like the asteroid that puts his head in the sand. That's an asteroid, they don't do that. But a lot of people think that asteroid when they have an enemy coming, they put their head in the sand, so they don't see the predator. So they feel safe. That's method absolutely not true. But it became a very famous expression that we use today, don't bury your head in the sand. Because a lot of people try to act on this problem like that I don't have a spending problem.

00:23:21--> 00:23:22

Um, by the way,

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

it doesn't matter how much money you make.

00:23:27--> 00:23:30

It doesn't matter if you have a big paycheck or small paychecks.

00:23:32--> 00:23:38

A lot of people because they have a good income, the thing that they don't have a spending problem. And that's not true.

00:23:40--> 00:23:54

Even if you have a good income, and you have a spend, you still have Could you be you still could have a spending problem. So what First of all, you need to admit that, you know, the sut that the person should,

00:23:55--> 00:24:29

is the last lot of theories. I've been reading about this quite a bit. Some people said you should not you should spend 90% and not unsafe 10%. But most of good economists, they will tell you, if you really want to start business and to improve your finance, you should have 70% spent and 30% saved. If you can't make that formula in your life, oh my god, you will see a big change in your income and in your money and your relationship with money. One of the thing is, you know,

00:24:30--> 00:24:33

this is a word people don't like it, the B word.

00:24:34--> 00:24:49

That budget. You know, the budget is a word a lot of people scared off and people don't like but you know what's important about budget budget to means as David Ramsey said, he said when you give every number a name,

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

you know, when you give the numbers a name and that's very true. When you start budgeting yourself and you what is about to make it clear in front of you. What is your income is what's your

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

Spending are where you spend your money. But I want to tell you, that I have seen personally, and in my soul and many people as well, that our toxic habit of spending comes from these areas. Number one, we

00:25:24--> 00:25:32

sometimes it became a habit for us to overspend in certain categories of our budget.

00:25:33--> 00:25:54

And this only will come when you start having budget for if you watch your spending, for example, if you look at your spending spending problem, you look, you'll find yourself spending so much in one area. Like I know my brother was telling me, I found that I spent an average 1500 or an individual is not a business 15 $100 on cell phones bills.

00:25:56--> 00:25:56

An average

00:25:57--> 00:26:21

he said, I thought I spent in grocery for example, a month $1,600 I found I spent $2,000. I found that I do an entertainment and clothes. So sometimes you find yourself overspend, get the habit divorcement in one category in your life. So figure out that category and control it. Another problem is what I call it also, it's that

00:26:22--> 00:26:25

and when you do on unplanned purchases,

00:26:27--> 00:26:36

you just make a big purchase, and you never plan for it. You do it then you plan later. There is another manifestation for it.

00:26:38--> 00:26:51

It's called retail therapy. You heard that before expression, retail therapy. Or as a psychologist, there is a lot of people think that purchasing it's a therapy to their anxiety,

00:26:53--> 00:27:35

that purchasing and go to the mall and buying clothes or buying food or going to grocery, it's a therapy to their, you know, a sadness or stress. That's how they relieve their stress. And when you cut into that habit, you can be in a disaster financially. Make sure that you don't make a big commitment, especially big commitment, something while you're under anxiety or stress, because you can you can be doing this without realizing that you're basically leading yourself to a very big financial crisis in the future. There is a statement I read and it's very interesting. He said, whenever you put this budget you need, you know that you're going to make cuts, you're going to make

00:27:35--> 00:27:54

adjustment. A lot of time we're not willing to do a sacrifice. But I read I read I read the statement I want to quote it to you because I thought I'd just make my points I can in my head it says sacrifice for the things you want or the things you want will become the sacrifice.

00:27:56--> 00:28:05

So say that again. It's sacrifice for the things you want or the thing you want will become the sacrifice.

00:28:07--> 00:28:41

Either you willing to give up something to aim to earn the thing that you want really or what you want is going to be basically the thing that will go and the process of your life. Make sure that you have good goals in your life make sure that you be aware of the thing that destroy your wealth spending is not the only thing can destroy your wealth over spending and not budgeting and not planning sins also can destroy your wealth on an abusive allottee send them in the lab data you have more risk than be you'll see a lot of how to take away your provision

00:28:42--> 00:28:54

you might say [???] I like I do send some I still get money. You know my boss didn't cut my salary. But you didn't know what was written for you and taken away from you because of your son

00:28:55--> 00:28:57

alert one day we'll show it to you.
