Smilla 100 Allah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Brothers and sisters and welcome to a new episode of In the light of the sahaba. And with us today, inshallah to Allah and this episode is the great companion of mine. A Fern Radi Allahu Anhu is an illustrious life. Subhan Allah bless his life. We of course, cannot talk about the whole of his life, but what we will do is in Sharla, Taylor is choose one incident, which shows the great standing and the great blessings that Allah subhanaw taala gave to this great companion, and companion whom is known as of no no rain, no possessor of the two lights. Because as we know that Earth man Radi Allahu Anhu on on
different occasions, that he married two daughters of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet Muhammad Ali Sato Salam said that if I had a third daughter, I would have married her to you, as we know that both cochlea and Uncle assume are the Allahu anha. They both passed away during the life of man are the Allahu and now as we all know, brothers and sisters, before we get into the story, what are the most important actions that we should try to focus on in our lives are those actions that will continue after we pass away Subhan Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us in the sound Hadith, that all the deeds of the sons and
daughters of even Adam, they will come to an end when they pass away, except for three. The first one is a sadaqa to injuria, and that is the continuous charity. The second one is a knowledge that people will benefit from. And thirdly is a pious child that will make dua for them. But it is the continuous charity that I want to focus on in shallow Thailand. Now, there are many ways for us to instill or set up continuous charity. If that Subhanallah when you pass away and you are buried your account in sha Allah, Allah will still be filled with good deeds, that what you have set up and this is one of the most beneficial and the best things that you can do for any beloved ones who have
passed away, that you can set up a charity in their name, and insha Allah to Allah, they will receive a great reward on Yeoman Chioma forgot the good deeds thing or the good practice that you set up for them. And there was a time during the life of the prophet Elijah CERAM during the Madani period, that there was some sort of what you might say a drought, and the existence of fresh water in Medina was not like maca. Maca of course had the well of zamzam and Masha Allah water was readily available. However, in Medina, it was not quite the same, and there were very few wills. In fact, the very best well was owned by an individual who's to charge extortionate amounts of money to use
the water. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever purchases bitter Roma, the well of Roma, which is the name of course it was known by inshallah to Allah will have a great reward will have a place in the Paradise, Earth man or the Allahu Akbar saw this as a golden opportunity to look for some hate to look for some good. And as of course, as Muslims, we take those golden opportunities as well. We don't let them pass them. We don't let them pass us by. Samantha Radi Allahu Anhu. He went to the owner of the well. And he said to him, allow me to purchase this well. The individual knew very well, that the people had a great need for this world. And he made lots of
profit by selling the water. He said, I will not sell the world to you, sir Amanda Radi Allahu Anhu he offered a very high price, maybe four times the worth of that particular Well, however, the individual he refused Earthman Radi Allahu he was a very smart, intelligent, he was very smart businessman. So he said, allow me to purchase a 50% share in the will. They've only thought about it. And because it was such a high price, he agreed. So now we'll hamdulillah with might have an iPhone or the allaahu and he now owned a 50% share in the will. So how does one share a well? The agreement was that one day would be for us mandible affair no Rhodiola one he could use the well as
he wished. And then the day after that. The other owner could use their well as he wished, and that they would take alternate days sharing the water
or its mana Radi Allahu Anhu agreed immediately that whoever wanted water from the well on his day, they could have it for absolutely no price at all. It would be free. Subhanallah what a great deed. The Amanda Radi Allahu Anhu did that at that time. Unfortunately, the individual who owned the other share on his day, nobody purchased any water. On the day of Earth man, people will take double the amount of water and on the next day, there will be no customers for the individual. Now it was not the intention it was man or the Allahu Akbar to harm the individual in any way. But
rather with manda Radi Allahu Anhu weighed up things. And he said that I want to benefit the masses, because there was a drought and I want people to have access to the water.
So after a while, the individual became helpless and said, I will sell my share of the wealth to you, but only for a very, very high price. So Amanda Radi Allahu Anhu agreed to the price, and he purchased the full share of the wealth, and then dedicated it for free use for anyone who wanted to use it. Subhan Allah. Now did it with mana Radi Allahu Anhu. Did he know or did he think what this would become? For sure he did not.
After a short while one of the companions said, Oh, man, allow me to purchase this wealth from you. He said I will not sell it. Again, people wanted to buy the well from Earth man knowing the promise that the Prophet sallallahu Ellefson had given for those who had purchased the will and gave it to the people, however, with one or the other, and he refused to sell the will. And he gave it as an endowment as a walk in Arabic as a free use for all of the Muslims. Now after the death of Earth, Myrna Radi Allahu and Hamdulillah, the well, it was still had water and people were still benefiting benefiting from it. It was sweet, pure water, the whole of her or the leaders of the Muslims of the
times, especially the old maids, they began to preserve the will. So the land that was around the well was sectioned off. And then some day trees, they were planted around the area. And the well that was used, or the water from the well that was used to irrigate the date trees, these date trees were then given as a charity Subhanallah then when these dates were sold, more land was purchased. So this one action of purchasing the will lead to the ownership now over hamdulillah a large section of land around the will and Alhamdulillah people didn't want it to make sure that the benefits still remained fought with man as a continuous charity. So a vast date plantation was actually built
until now Subhanallah into our day now, this date plant this well is still in use SubhanAllah. But how it has been set up is as follows. A bank account was actually set up and until this day, now, there was a bank account in Saudi Arabia, okay, there was a bank account in the name of Earth mountain affirm the endowments have responded and affirm that all the Allahu Anhu and any of the profits that were made by selling the dates, it goes back into this bank account. Now this bank account is then looked at every year, and all the money that is made, goes to two things. One half of it goes to looking after the poor, the needy, and the widows of Almudena Subhanallah and the
other half after a particular amount of time after a good amount of money was made. A piece of land was purchased right next to mustard in another way. And a hotel was built in the name of Earthman Dibner. Affirm, what are the Allahu. And any profits made from the land on the hotel, goes back into the pot, it goes back into the account of commandment affirm, and again is distributed amongst the poor people did Earthman Radi Allahu Akbar think that this purchase of this one will would then expand and blossom into the purchase of this date plantation and a hotel and all the prophets would go back to looking after the poor, the needy, the widows and many other people who are in need. In
the medina of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, he did not think that but a person who has a sincere intention, a person who has sincerity to work towards Allah subhanaw taala Allah, Allah Allah can increase that deed, increase that reward to something that we would never imagine. For this reason, we remember the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam led to the Run Bill macro fish that do not belittle any form of good that a person may do for Allah subhanaw taala can increase that good beyond our imagination, my dear brothers and sisters, an opportunity that comes our way to set up a continuous charity for ourselves or for our beloved ones is something that
we should all aspire and work to do. When we are in our graves Subhanallah we will be in need of good deeds when we face Allah subhanaw taala on Yeoman pm we will be in need of so many more deeds that maybe I'm short of setting up something like this will be of great benefit to us Inshallah, to Allah and a benefit to our beloved ones. This is a deen a religion of such blessings and mercy. And the fact that one individual may do one small action that Allah subhanaw taala can place blessings in that and unusual pm when you meet Allah subhanaw taala you meet Allah azza wa jal with mountains or reward. It is very important for us number
Want to remain sincere and to work on this important issue of sadaqa jariya of setting up a good charity, a continuous charity, if it comes in the form of purchasing land or wealth, or buying and setting up trees or date plantation, whatever that is, if a person does something for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala Allah azza wa jal will increase something beyond our nation imagination. I ask Allah subhanaw taala allows us to understand the importance of setting up a sudoku injuria a continuous charity and they ask Allah subhanaw taala it allows us to benefit from the stories of the great companions This is just one example If man are the Allahu and there are many other companions
who did small deeds, but Allah subhanaw taala allowed them to become so much greater and bigger than they ever thought. The study of the lives of the companions, my dear brothers and sisters, is extremely important, not only because we want to raise our iman, but we want to implement their actions in our lives. Because where did they get that guidance from? They got it from our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he is our corridor, and he is our guide, and the one who ultimately we truly follow. So the one who follows Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran, and what He commands us and proceeds from and likewise following the Sunnah of the Prophet and he says, we'll be
successful in life, this life and also in the hereafter. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept from us all. Allahu Amin BarakAllahu li Walakum wa Salaamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
