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

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim

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

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

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

wa sallahu wa Sallim wa barik ala

00:00:10--> 00:00:16

nabina Muhammad in while early wasapi Masada Allah de la oma Delia, my bad

00:00:17--> 00:00:19

indeed will face due to a loss of penalty either.

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

May the peace of blessings be upon his final messenger Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam is certainly one. This one's better now.

00:00:36--> 00:00:43

I made the peace and blessings be upon its final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

It's been a while since I've entered the masjid here. And the mustard for me has a lot of memories. And

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

it's a good opportunity for me to see faces I haven't seen for a long time.

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

And I must say that this is one of the

00:01:03--> 00:01:10

after Makkah, and Medina and mon mustard. Of course, after that there is one of the most beloved mustards to me

00:01:11--> 00:01:14

and my allies with general rule, the brothers and sisters who have

00:01:16--> 00:01:21

put an enormous amount of effort to making today's event possible.

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

Now, there are many organizations that are,

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

are there to help the button sisters Muslims generally.

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

But I was just discussing today actually, that

00:01:34--> 00:01:46

the atrocities that are going on in Syria, for example, okay. And also the difficulties, and, you know, the problems that have been going on in Palestine for, you know, two generations.

00:01:48--> 00:01:52

And the starvation that occurs and difficulties that occur in Africa, for example,

00:01:53--> 00:01:55

and atrocities that go on in in Burma.

00:01:57--> 00:01:58

And it until now, really, that

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

in this day and age in 2013, that you still have these atrocities going on, you still have people suffering to such an extent.

00:02:13--> 00:02:17

Especially when we're talking about the suffering it is directly

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

for Muslims.

00:02:20--> 00:02:36

But why is it that we're not questioning the other of a larger lavalla? don't mean it from that perspective. I mean, for us to question ourselves, but really, what is my part in trying to resolve this particular situation, trying to help the situation?

00:02:37--> 00:02:49

And that is it from time to time when I meet people? Is it Am I going to still have the attitude and still have the phrase that the world will do something and we rely on somebody else.

00:02:51--> 00:03:01

Now, how is one of those organizations which is really is there as a unique organization, is truly unique.

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

I'm not here to

00:03:05--> 00:03:10

go through the history of house. You know what how this is about. It's about helping

00:03:11--> 00:03:18

families who have been affected by what represents oppressive laws.

00:03:22--> 00:03:31

Now, the organization itself is going through a difficult time. And we're talking about literally, the organization being here today, and maybe not being here tomorrow.

00:03:34--> 00:03:37

That's the level the organization is currently at.

00:03:39--> 00:03:47

We're not talking about 100 a day organization is moving when everything is fine, please give us more money, because we want to help the children and the mothers.

00:03:48--> 00:03:52

We're talking about the actual organization being here tomorrow.

00:03:55--> 00:03:56

And

00:03:58--> 00:04:01

allegedly, has blessed you to come here this evening.

00:04:02--> 00:04:03

And the number that we have here.

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

Because to be honest with you, the importance of this project, probably need the masjid two or three times the size of this, to cater the amount of people that really should be coming.

00:04:17--> 00:04:24

I don't think it's a lack of people being unaware. The event has been publicized. People know about hugs.

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

So why is it?

00:04:28--> 00:04:31

And this is why I say that may Allah reward you for coming.

00:04:32--> 00:04:33

Why is it that people don't come?

00:04:35--> 00:04:37

And why is that we find ourselves the number that we have here.

00:04:39--> 00:04:42

When in fact the number should be as I mentioned, much more than we have now.

00:04:44--> 00:04:51

But nonetheless, we thank Allah subhanaw taala for being our boss giving us the opportunity for us to be here together now.

00:04:52--> 00:04:58

And whatever the outcome is that we hope to see the fruits of that on the Day of Judgment

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

Because we're talking about one of those

00:05:04--> 00:05:07

projects, which is completely unique

00:05:09--> 00:05:11

is it that we need to bring a small child?

00:05:13--> 00:05:22

Or do we need to bring the mother to really explain that, you know, difficulties and trials that they go through. For the Muslims actually to wake up

00:05:23--> 00:05:25

and realize the importance of such a project?

00:05:26--> 00:05:33

Do we have to bring the child and say, he's got holes in his shoes, and that the mother can't afford to buy any more shoes for him,

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

or she can't afford to send him to school?

00:05:38--> 00:05:43

Are these the kind of example that we need to bring forth, to really wake up the Muslims

00:05:45--> 00:05:47

and say that, you know, there's obligations that are upon you.

00:05:50--> 00:05:51

And the situation is such that

00:05:53--> 00:05:54

I really fear

00:05:56--> 00:05:59

and we should all fear the situation that we are living in.

00:06:01--> 00:06:04

Because living in such an environment like this,

00:06:05--> 00:06:10

in which the net is, is closing in and closing in and closing in,

00:06:11--> 00:06:20

that if we don't do something about it, that one day you will be consumed within that net, and you'll be relying on another person, after Allah subhanaw taala.

00:06:21--> 00:06:32

And the once upon a time, once upon a time that they used to be an organization, once upon a time, and it used to help our brothers and sisters and children, for people in your situation.

00:06:33--> 00:06:37

But for whatever reason, the Muslims really weren't

00:06:39--> 00:06:40

convinced enough

00:06:41--> 00:06:46

to really support such an organization. So unfortunately, went underground, and it disappeared.

00:06:48--> 00:06:54

Now we're just rolling, involving ourselves and trying to get the brothers and sisters to bring some money here and there, just to help out individuals.

00:06:56--> 00:07:03

I say what an opportunity it is. But also penalty Allah has allowed you to come here and to participate in such a noble effort.

00:07:05--> 00:07:10

Because if you can imagine the difficulty that any one person that they go through,

00:07:11--> 00:07:20

and at that time, that they will turn to Allah subhanaw taala and the sincerity of their supplication for the people who help them.

00:07:22--> 00:07:25

Who knows what Allah subhanaw taala may give you in this life and in the Hereafter.

00:07:27--> 00:07:30

But for many of us, we haven't tasted true difficulty.

00:07:31--> 00:07:41

But the person whose traces tasted true difficulty, and that when they turn to Allah subhanaw taala, can you imagine the sincerity and the reliance that they had because they have nothing else except a larger ladder?

00:07:43--> 00:07:46

And that they ask a lot of penalty Allah for help and when the help comes

00:07:48--> 00:08:00

from Allah subhanaw taala through the means of a of a charity organization, over donation of a particular individual. When they ask a lot of penalty, Allah to bless you, or bless your family members.

00:08:03--> 00:08:06

Can you imagine what a larger Nevada may give to you?

00:08:10--> 00:08:13

A woman she came to the house of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

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

And she had two young children, very small children. And she was asking for some provisions.

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

The Prophet salallahu alaihe salam was not there.

00:08:26--> 00:08:27

I should not be allowed to and she was there.

00:08:28--> 00:08:33

So she said to the woman to wait, and to look for something so she could bring it for her.

00:08:35--> 00:08:38

I showed the Allahu anhu What did she bring this woman?

00:08:40--> 00:08:40

Does anybody know?

00:08:42--> 00:08:43

Three days.

00:08:45--> 00:08:51

This was in the house of a different color. This was in the house of Rasulullah sallallahu allyssa. She bought she bought her three days.

00:08:53--> 00:09:03

This woman she gave one date to one child and the other day to the other child. She got the other date split it in half and gave it to her two children.

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

I shadowed the allows amazed

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

of the compassion and mercy of this mother to her child.

00:09:13--> 00:09:15

When the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam returned

00:09:17--> 00:09:23

that I showed the Allahu Akbar felt compelled to tell Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about this incident

00:09:26--> 00:09:34

that this sadaqa this charity that I showed the Allahu Allah gave this needy poor Sahaba

00:09:35--> 00:09:38

who knows what are the Allahu anhu would receive for that.

00:09:39--> 00:09:42

But that what the mother did for her own child

00:09:43--> 00:09:46

was the reason for her being saved from the Hellfire

00:09:49--> 00:09:53

under the puppet Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hebrews he reminded a shadow the alarm

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

that save yourself from the now

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

save

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

Your cell from the Hellfire will be shipped.

00:10:03--> 00:10:07

Even if you have to split the date, half a date you give that instead of

00:10:09--> 00:10:11

save yourself from the knob,

00:10:12--> 00:10:15

which is a nod is made up from the fuel of men

00:10:18--> 00:10:19

and stones

00:10:20--> 00:10:21

that you save yourself below will show

00:10:25--> 00:10:38

that every single one of us when we come to the masjid and we want to be in the first line, we want to attain righteousness, we want to attain bill and a closeness to Allah subhanaw taala that you will never attain them.

00:10:40--> 00:10:44

That you will never attain righteousness habitat to Pico minmatar Boone

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

until you give that what is beloved to you,

00:10:49--> 00:11:00

Len, Allah says Len tener don't believe that you will never attain or reach this station of ill will. Until you get give from that what you love.

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

Not from that what is access,

00:11:04--> 00:11:06

but what you don't need.

00:11:07--> 00:11:09

But the secret here is from that what you love,

00:11:10--> 00:11:12

that what your heart is attached to.

00:11:13--> 00:11:17

And only when you give that, then you will attain righteousness.

00:11:18--> 00:11:21

I will also have your rhodiola or uncle's name upon

00:11:23--> 00:11:26

that he had a well known Hadith, a well known piece of land

00:11:28--> 00:11:32

in which that the people the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would visit and they would spend their time

00:11:34--> 00:11:36

and he was a person who wanted to attain righteousness.

00:11:39--> 00:11:41

When he heard about this verse,

00:11:42--> 00:11:45

that he came immediately to the Prophet sallallahu Allah He was setting them.

00:11:46--> 00:11:51

He said, Yeah, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that I have a hadith that I have a garden

00:11:54--> 00:11:56

and it is the most beloved of my wealth.

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

It is the most important of my wealth.

00:12:01--> 00:12:06

Whatever the subject will be, and I will give it as a charity, because I want to attain righteousness.

00:12:08--> 00:12:18

So the focus of the law while he was telling me said to him, why don't you give it to the poor your family, although you need to have your family members. He said I want to give it for everybody to benefit.

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

apocrypha do karate Allahu anhu

00:12:27--> 00:12:29

did he die in the year nine of the Hitler?

00:12:31--> 00:12:34

Did he die before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam? No.

00:12:36--> 00:12:40

He died about two and a half or so years after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:12:43--> 00:12:46

Ababa Cara De La Hoya did not therefore die of starvation,

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

or shelter dip deprivation in the ninth year of the hedgerow.

00:12:54--> 00:13:01

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he asked the companions to give what they could for the budget of tabuk

00:13:03--> 00:13:09

and when hermana one of the Allahu anhu came and gave half of his wealth that he found that Abubakar the Allahu Akbar gave everything.

00:13:10--> 00:13:20

Did you hear that Abu Bakar died of starvation because of the incident. No. Did you hear that Abu Bakr radi Allahu Ahad nothing was in need begging in the streets know

00:13:24--> 00:13:29

that when the Posada Allahu Allah said said to Abu Bakr, radi Allahu, and what did you leave for your family? abacha?

00:13:30--> 00:13:35

Torah, Torah, whom Allah wa rasuluh the I left for them Allah and His Messenger

00:13:37--> 00:13:46

for many of us, that we have become attached to these worldly possessions to a level which you're you're, you're in denial,

00:13:48--> 00:14:02

that I'm not attached to the dunya I'm not attached to my wealth and this and that, and the other, even though that there are people in front of me that I know or more need than I, and that if I give, it won't break the family structure that I have,

00:14:04--> 00:14:11

but as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, A sadaqa to borhan that giving charity is a proof.

00:14:12--> 00:14:18

It is a proof whether that you are truthful to your statement or not.

00:14:19--> 00:14:23

That if you are attached to this union, that you will give a small amount

00:14:24--> 00:14:32

and that you would withhold when you know that you can give more. But the shape line and your desires on yourself, you will make up many, many more excuses

00:14:33--> 00:14:35

to spend that money on other things.

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

But that charity when it has to be given, it has to be given you know, when you are listening to a fundraiser, and you hear about the project and you're convinced about the project. Maybe this happened once before, I know it has happened to me. But I'm convinced by the project and the Standing Order goes through

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

the sheets and the pens that go around and then there's who will give 1000 pounds who will give a 500

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

pounds and you know you have the amount, you know you have the amount.

00:15:04--> 00:15:09

But you don't have it with you right now. But you're fully convinced I'm going to give that 500 pounds.

00:15:10--> 00:15:12

And I'm going to give that 1000 pounds.

00:15:13--> 00:15:17

But you don't have it at that particular time, then you go home.

00:15:18--> 00:15:23

For some reason the SharePoint has convinced you hasn't counted a lot of money to give away.

00:15:25--> 00:15:31

Or that money is the boost and the energy that you had at that particular time. Somehow gone.

00:15:32--> 00:15:36

That is why when that time for charity, that time for sada when it comes

00:15:37--> 00:15:49

by whatever means I will take that opportunity, because maybe in an hour's time, maybe in 15 minutes time when the event is over, I'm not going to have that same feeling. And they end up not giving

00:15:51--> 00:15:55

us a Majora, Nia, you'd have a shorter reward for that intention at that time.

00:15:57--> 00:16:01

But the fact is that you didn't give it that hour later or that day later.

00:16:02--> 00:16:05

So when the opportunity comes to you shout out very shortly.

00:16:06--> 00:16:08

And you are asked to give something

00:16:09--> 00:16:14

for this organization. And I challenge you to find an organization which does the work that it does.

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

I challenge you,

00:16:18--> 00:16:22

when an opportunity comes to you for you to give the do not think twice.

00:16:24--> 00:16:32

Do not think twice about supporting such a noble and important project. To the extent that the obligation

00:16:34--> 00:16:38

is a force on some of us. The obligation falls on some of us.

00:16:40--> 00:16:49

It may not be an obligation on every single individual to financially give. But there are certain amount of people I'm sure that the obligation is upon you to give.

00:16:51--> 00:17:04

Don't be from those people whom that it is an obligation upon you. And that you turn away from such a noble and rewarding for you. Because don't ever think that when you give that there was a deficiency and I don't have any more now.

00:17:06--> 00:17:09

Because when you give Allah subhanaw taala will replace and give you something better.

00:17:11--> 00:17:13

There's that leap of faith that you should have analyzed.

00:17:15--> 00:17:19

that gap that I will give and I know that Allah Subhana Allah will give something back to me.

00:17:21--> 00:17:40

But sometimes we need that assurance that when I give, am I really going to get something back? When you make that business transaction with somebody that if I give you 50 pounds a part of the business or give you 10,000 pounds? Are you sure I'm going to make two for 2.5%? Are you sure I'm going to make 5%? Or 10%? Are you sure you can promise me that?

00:17:41--> 00:17:46

Only when you get that promise, and if I don't get it by you, you'll give that money back to me right? Then I'll give

00:17:48--> 00:17:50

but there are times

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

especially things like this, it is between you and Allah subhanaw taala?

00:17:58--> 00:18:06

Will Allah subhanaw taala feel his promise to you when he says that when you give he'll give you something back? Do you doubt a lot of penalty that he won't give it to you.

00:18:08--> 00:18:17

So when you give and that Allah subhanaw taala will increase your reward, tenfold 700 fold and more. Do you doubt that Allah subhanaw taala will give that to you.

00:18:19--> 00:18:32

So when that opportunity comes to you, brothers and sisters, don't hold yourself back. That upset. Don't hold yourself don't deprive yourself of the opportunity that has been given to you this evening.

00:18:34--> 00:18:41

Because how many people haven't come, but you have come and there's a reason that you have come. You came in your intention was

00:18:42--> 00:18:48

just to reset Mr. madama to hear some stories which will affect your heart and Subhana Allah and Mashallah.

00:18:50--> 00:18:52

No, you should have come here to participate.

00:18:53--> 00:18:55

And that your participation doesn't stop today.

00:18:57--> 00:19:04

While your participation in hawks and other projects like this will continue. Because you know the obligation which is upon you,

00:19:05--> 00:19:10

your obligation towards your brothers and sisters who are in need and children who are in need.

00:19:11--> 00:19:30

Because Allah Allah, Allah knows that a day may come to you that you will be tried with your family with your children, and that you will defend that Allah subhanaw taala and you say Where are my brothers and where are my sisters and you will be reminded the day that you forgot about your brothers and sisters. And this is a reminder to you today that you are left alone.

00:19:34--> 00:19:38

That the student also cannot analyze that he gives people tests.

00:19:39--> 00:19:42

And when those tests when it comes to you and Allah Allah Allah gives you his wealth,

00:19:43--> 00:19:49

because the whole Dominion calculi love, it belongs to Allah subhanaw taala doesn't belong to you.

00:19:50--> 00:20:00

And that small tiny amount of wealth has been given to you that you are going to be tested with it. Or you're going to place it where Allah gelada has shown you this is why you should

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

Place it Are you going to withhold it yourself

00:20:04--> 00:20:08

and say I'm not going to give that Oh Allah you gave it to me and I'm going to withhold it

00:20:10--> 00:20:13

I know that you are testing me with this wealth, but I won't give it

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

when a day will come and and also cannot Allah told us in Surah monatti on

00:20:21--> 00:20:27

a day will come when you will wish that you can give another charity

00:20:30--> 00:20:34

but you will never be able to come back and never give a charity or even to say it this be how to do it.

00:20:35--> 00:20:39
