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

Without begging, you're asking for it. So the question basically, if you don't ask for anything, you know, let's say that you did someone a favor, okay? Or someone asked you to come and give a talk here or there, and then they give you money. Do you take a dog? People say no, I don't want that.

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

Do you take it?

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

Or say no, I don't wonder

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

how many of you will say no, I don't want to take it.

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

Put your hands down.

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

You will take

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

Well, the son of the professor has mentioned this hadith and we're going to explain it and shout out to bodycote and he did he did.

00:00:38--> 00:01:20

Salim bin Abdullah Brahma della Han who call and Avi Abdullah Omar and Amaro de la Juan canora sola Salah Samia Cole Kaneohe in LA. So I'm going to hop out of the water and actually the three generations so Salim, the son of Abdullah the son of Omar, they are narrating the story right now Salim says My father used to tell me that his father Omar Abdullah, and I used to say, Canada sort of lyocell Alasania clearly a law that Rasulullah has as the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, he used to give me an OData it's basically more like what do you call it? There may be some allowance for example, you know, back then there was no that system but they had some what we call

00:01:20--> 00:01:26

allowances meaning you know, the Sahaba gelato ran home, whenever the war spoils come in. Whenever

00:01:28--> 00:01:54

any kind of any war, Buddhists come into the community, they will distribute that among the people in general. So people were assigned certain amounts, shares, they say the professor Sam would call me and give me a lotta my allowance for the month or for the year or whatever. But I'll call out to Him and who have called him in, he would say de la de la pena and he would say Rasul Allah, please give it to someone who who needs it more than me.

00:01:56--> 00:02:04

Like, I'd have the lamb Okay, I'm, I'm fine. So the prophets Allah said, I would say to him, Carla, who don't just take it.

00:02:05--> 00:02:32

And then he explained, but either Jackie manhandle Mary Shea on went viral mushrif in Alaska in fur hood, who, furthermore Waldo he said Salalah salam to him take it and when it comes to you without begging or asking for it without being greedy going after it yourself, he said and then just take it an attitude property just attitude terminal hamdulillah bol

00:02:33--> 00:02:34

kulu

00:02:35--> 00:03:19

if you want to use if you will keep it for yourself to use it. Otherwise you can give it to charity. But it's yours now. Just give it to us whatever however you wish called one mala fella to Tibet who necec As for the money that doesn't come to you without you working for it like the money that is out there. And you just want to get free money so you're going to ask for it if you don't work for it if you don't make service or job whatever to get the money to earn that money. He said Salah Salem Casa La Sam Farah to the bit who Nuff said don't go after it. Don't let your nerves go after he said some of our salons as a matter of fact Salim the grandson right now he says for can Abdullah

00:03:19--> 00:03:30

speak about his father law as a hidden Shia, he would never ask anybody for anything while the shanaka and he would never reject anything it was given to him.

00:03:31--> 00:03:51

If he was given gift, or was given money wherever he would take it, but to go after themselves and go into kind of pursue it without of course have such as working for it or earning it you know, rightfully and so on. He would not do that. Are they allowed to run Waldo? So from this hadith? Do you have to accept the money that comes to you for free?

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

You have to accept it.

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

So you don't have to accept it. So what is about the professor I'm telling Omar says Whoa, take it. Isn't there a command?

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

From the prophets, Allah Salah?

00:04:08--> 00:04:46

Well, this is called a shad is called Irshad is not Yanni. It's not an exam. It's not obligatory, that's a recommendation from the Prophet sallallaahu. Like he's given the option and he's telling you it's okay for you to take it. Some people prefer maybe to go the path of Zod which means you know, humility and humbleness and an ascetic life. So therefore, they will reject us you know what, even if it even if it's okay for me to take it, but I'd rather not take it at all. It's up to you. But you don't you don't go and blame anyone for taking it.

00:04:47--> 00:04:55

Like this is tough for law. How could you do that? After If you have time, you know, self sufficient and contentment. You don't want to take it don't take it. I'll take it.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

So it's it's you have both way to do it.

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

And either way, there's a suitor from the Prophet sallallahu ala to pursue again, people they have different capacities and how they want to live their lives. Whichever way they do, they should be fine. So for example, when you travel, not about money, but some want to travel

00:05:14--> 00:05:37

and Ramadan, for instance, some people want to fast as they don't want to fast. So if you go and fast, are you going to go and start, you know, any shaman, everybody who's who's drinking and eating on the journey stuff for life should be fasting by now. You were travelers, you have only two hours. It's not a big deal. So what if we can we can break our fast you cannot blame somebody for taking the rock sound.

00:05:38--> 00:06:07

Just like the other shouldn't be blaming someone else for taking the azeema which means saying why you fast? Yeah, we're traveling. So what I want to fast because a professor Sam did this. And he did that. So as soon as either we're in Charlotte, about a quarter alpha, this is some something because we've been, you know, in the previous session, we always said don't take the money, don't pursue the money. But again, if it comes to you without your asking for it, it's okay for you to take it and Charlotte Avada Kodama wala hota and a question Gemma? Yes.

00:06:12--> 00:06:13

Now

00:06:31--> 00:06:43

for fasting. Okay. Yeah. So yeah, so the question is about the rasa, to break the fast or to stay fasting and a short journey. Let's say we travel for two hours, whether it's flight or driving.

00:06:44--> 00:06:52

I mean, what is the you said, well, the logic behind you know, breaking your fast. You see, when it comes to the rules of Sharia, they're not based on

00:06:54--> 00:07:41

kind of anything that is that could change. It has to be some that it's fixed, and some that it's measurable, and some that consistent. So when we say what's the why we break our fast on a journey, because it is suffer, which means travel. Because travel is travel, no matter how no matter what, no matter how long, how short, no matter how hard or easy, it doesn't matter. It's called travel. So travel is the purpose or the reason why we break our fast when it comes to now, what's the purpose of breaking our fast on a journey, the hikma the wisdom behind it to make it easy for the people in case it gets difficult. Okay, so what if it doesn't get difficult?

00:07:42--> 00:08:02

What if it doesn't get difficult, you still have the rock song, because it's still a journey, no matter what, if it's easy or difficult the rocks are is that you are allowed to break your fast when you are on a journey to keep the rolling consistent. Otherwise, if we are going to say, well, you only break real fast when it's difficult to find difficulty

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

when you find that

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

the older one versus the younger one a man versus a woman

00:08:10--> 00:08:49

you know depends. So therefore, you cannot you cannot identify difficulty in a consistent way. So therefore, the role is Shara was based on something consistent, which is the which is suffer travel. But then he would say hold on second. But travel right now is even travel is kind of like awkward. We don't even know what travel is anymore. well traveled usually it's defined by the culture and by the custom. So if people say from here to Houston is suffers and it's tougher. Why? Because it takes four hours to drive until Houston once they established the trend, the bullish trend that it takes you 35 minutes to get from Dallas to Houston, the rolling might change.

00:08:50--> 00:09:16

Because now it's only 35 minutes. Right? So if people started going frequently, in this case, they might change their perception of the visit to use them. Just like the people who live in New York and New Jersey. And I keep bringing this example because whenever whenever I asked people in New Jersey, I said what do you guys go to New York? Do you consider this suffer? They will say no, it's not.

00:09:17--> 00:09:46

When I asked the people of New York, when you come to New Jersey, although they use the same train, they use the same highways. I said, Do you consider coming from New York to New Jersey suffer? They say yes, it is suffer. And it's like so watch what happened here? It's the same highway the same train. The people in New Jersey don't don't consider the suffer. And they build new york they consider coming to New Jersey suffer. You realize why is that so because the people of New Jersey, they commute a lot to New York for work.

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

So on the perception of most of the people in New Jersey, gone to New York, it's just like a regular commute. It's not it's not even a journey anymore. Doesn't matter. But the people of New York they have nothing to do in New Jersey and attend their wedding.

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

Or Lima or something like that. So therefore, they go once in a while. So for them to come out from New York all the way to New Jersey, it's actually it's hard and difficult problems. So that's why they consider it suffer. So we say the rolling for the people of New York when they come to New Jersey, you are a traveler. But if you are from New Jersey, going to New York, you're not a traveler.

00:10:20--> 00:10:28

This is how it goes on. I know a lot of New Yorkers will get offended right now proudly on the jersey people. But nevermind. That's how Kamala Hannah, now.

00:10:32--> 00:10:36

India and Dubai from now? Yes, good.

00:12:05--> 00:12:43

Well, you don't actually expect anything volunteering, there is no doubt about it. If you volunteer to get something out of it, then that's your fault. And expecting something and in the service of volunteering, it's a mistake on the part of the people who go to volunteer. But if you've been given, let's say, a $50, let's say gift card, after you've done your hard work in the volunteering and so on. Again, it's up to you to accept that or reject that. If you take it today, don't expect next time they're going to give another $50. And if you do and if you're offended or or disappointed, that's your fault. Don't ruin your armor and your deeds, similar furniture services.

00:12:43--> 00:12:55

Back in the days, when the Islamic State was taking care of the Ummah and the aim and the shoe, and so on. They don't need to take any extra money from people for the services. But in America, they're on their own.

00:12:56--> 00:13:19

But listen to me, most of them, most of them are religious leaders in our communities. They're underpaid in a way that they have to seek two three jobs, you know, to survive. When someone in the community is working. One corporate job is actually three times the salary of regular Imam. So when we put our me in a position to start demanding money for these kind of services, it's our fault as a community.

00:13:28--> 00:13:30

I'm one of them by the words that lets you know

00:13:31--> 00:13:34

which means I can give you statistics

00:13:40--> 00:13:41

have a full time job.

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

Absolutely.

00:13:54--> 00:13:56

Not living as if they're surviving.

00:14:01--> 00:14:18

I go to I go to a man, I go to man conferences and I meet four or 500 people. And most of all they talk about is actually his contacts with massage. Unfortunately, we put in our imams in a very awkward position, then we start blaming them when they go, you know,

00:14:19--> 00:14:26

the other way so it's our fault. We need to take care of them. That's very important for us. Shall we talk later inshallah, go ahead.

00:14:44--> 00:14:45

ahead of time.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

It's up to again, this up to what

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

receiving it accepting it, it is up to you there is no obligation. It's up to you. If you want to take it take it, you don't want to take it because you know that the situation is not that great Bismillah May Allah reward you for that, it counts as charity for you, inshallah, but there is no obligation accepting or rejecting. Now, last question is,

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

you can because your traveler

00:15:32--> 00:15:56

again, when it comes to suffer is not just for you, it's the culture of the people. So, the culture of the people going to Austin is travel no matter what you an individual who commute regularly is still suffer for you. Until the people between here Aston and Dallas say it's no longer a travel, then in this case, it becomes actually a regular while on

00:15:59--> 00:16:06

Sunday, Charlotte, Southern Virginia won't be at 545 at 10 Sharla xojo. Don't forget tomorrow we have a program at 12pm Michelle Donna
