From Bella Bella Mia sola salon Baraka, Vina Mohammed, Mr. Ali Osaka, sama, Sleeman, kathira.

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

So every adult is responsible to pay when one becomes do so when you have the money. And the last panel data, bless you with that wealth, that is enough for you to give that the car, you know, you're going to go on calculators, and then eventually you're gonna have to give that. And this happens every single year, particularly in Ramadan, Ramadan is coming very soon Shardlow data, and many people so many people when they think of this occur, the only thing on their mind is just to give out that sucker to calculate and give it out. That's all. But the etiquette, the manners, how to give it, that's a different thing. We don't really think too much about that, because we think

00:00:43--> 00:01:20

it's just a matter of calculating the money and give it out and hamdulillah we're done with that. The other thing as well is when we give our account, we always try to give it to those who are closer to us in terms of blood relations, which is good. But what are the other categories of the recipients of the second last panel dimension eight of them and sort of the sort of the tober and shallow data in this discussion, we will have the dub of Azteca last week just to go quickly over what we discussed last week. We discuss the etiquette and the manners of giving as a guy if you guys remember that. We mentioned six of these others so let's go over this real quick shout louder number

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

one, he said Rahim Allah, Buddha Muhammad Allah tada he said number one, an FM and FM are more administers aka that you understand the essence of giving that account the purpose of giving. And you mentioned three things that you understand the loss of Hannah well that is testing you by giving out what is most loved what is most beloved to you, that is your worth and your money. Because Allah subhana wa tada says, what to have been a man have been Gemma that you love money and wealth with passionate love. And also that Allah suppiler was testing you by reading yourself off the ad the characteristics of stinginess. And also last panel Donna wants to see how grateful you are to the

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

name of Allah azza wa jal by being thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. The second thing he said, of the etiquettes when you Give it, give it secretly, that is better than give it publicly even though Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned it a lot in Surat Al Baqarah. That is allowed also to give it publicly but it's better for you to do it secretly. Number three, he says don't ruin your charities Don't ruin the charity. By constant reminders, you keep reminding the people whom you are given them. Now whether you're given a Masjid given a specific organization, one individual or a family, don't keep taunting the people with your charities and what you're the goodies that you're making.

00:02:37--> 00:03:07

And number four, he said and you're starting out the year that you belittle the charity that you're given, don't think that you're giving too much, never ever, regardless how much money you're giving, don't look at it from a proportion of how much you have earned. And then you said give 50% of what I have given what I have earned No, don't say that. Don't look at it so great. belittle the charity because when you give it you give it to Allah subhanho wa Taala and number five, he said that when you give you look for three things in what you give, number one,

00:03:08--> 00:03:45

hello means the most pure number two as you are the who which means in terms of quality, the best. And number three, have Boulay that most loved most beloved to you these three things you look for whenever you give charity. And finally, number six, he said the etiquette that six etiquette of giving the cat or the charity, and yet globally, so the call to him and descubra that when you give when you want to put years ago, your charity somewhere, give it to someone that you know will benefit the most from that. You give it to somebody who will be the most it will benefit the most from that deck and he gave Of course different categories or students of knowledge, those who will

00:03:45--> 00:04:26

be grateful and thankful and so on. He gave different criterias but regardless of that, we want to learn that these are etiquettes that you should observe whenever you give sadaqa or gives aka today in shallow data to this evening, we'll be discussing now the other side. So this is from the side of the one who gives the one who gives us the charity. Now we will not talk about the other side means the receiver, the recipient of the Zika the prophets of Allah Allah mentioned in Hadith in a very, very short statement, but it's very powerful Cordelia lulea Hi, I'm Maria de sola means the upper hand is better than the lower hand. And what does that exactly mean? When it comes to charity? What

00:04:26--> 00:04:33

does that exactly mean? Which one is the upper hand is Gemma? The one who gives right? from the lower hand is the one who receives.

00:04:34--> 00:04:39

Now I know some people might philosophize that it says okay, what if someone has given his charity like this?

00:04:40--> 00:05:00

And then the receivers gonna take it instead of receiving it? Well, naturally when you give the one who gives keeps his hand on top and the one who receives put his hand on the bottom? So eventually, that's what the professor Assam says. And that's why the aroma they talk about the etiquette of both the one who gives and the one who receives so what are the etiquettes of the

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

One what are the etiquettes of the one who receives right now? Number one Cora Rahim Allah Allah Allah Imam even Kodama, he said, first loan fear that will cobbled This is a chapter the etiquette of the receiver or the recipient of the Zika la Buddha, an akuna la Buddha, an akuna

00:05:18--> 00:05:42

takaratomy, a snotty temana he says the recipient, the recipient of a Zika should be one of the eight categories one of the eight categories while he Federico, and there are specific etiquettes that need to be observed. What are these eight categories? Do you guys remember them? Before I decide that I'm sort of the target Let me see if you guys can count for me the eight categories of the recipients of Zika Do you remember them?

00:05:43--> 00:05:46

If you know that I will be able to count them right. So

00:05:47--> 00:06:03

learner. Doesn't matter though. She says the sister she's saying they will call Baba Tama, which means the relatives and also Alia team, the orphans, these orphans or relatives can be among the eight the category of the eight, but there are specific greater categories. There are greater categories.

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

You're going to start from the beginning which one which one?

00:06:12--> 00:06:14

Sister, can you make sure the door is closed? Manasa. Baraka

00:06:18--> 00:07:04

I know is what is not he's supposed to be outside the category of the one who gives but what are these What are these categories are eight categories that are mentioned in the Quran, regarding the legal recipients of Zika. So for someone to qualify as illegal recipients of Zika has to fall under one of eight, one of these eight categories. Number one, let's reset that last panel that says and sort of the Toba which is chapter nine is 16. That allowed the auto dialer in masataka, to drill for Cora, a sort of God also the part here means that the guy supposed to be given should be given to the following number one, he said alpha Cora, the meaning of that 1415 means poor. One second, that

00:07:04--> 00:07:48

is the needy. And he said, Well, I'm Melina Allah is employed to collect this account. And number four, he said, Well, more or less at Punahou. Mr. lefur kulu. Those who were trying to bring their hearts closer to the deen of Allah subhana wa tada warfare record for record music activity, and that at that time of slavery, number six, he says, one was already mean, those who are in debt, we're going to talk about what the meaning of that what feeds sebelah and for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. What does that exactly mean? He said, Be the law. And then finally, he said, What is Seville Wabi Sabi it means a traveler, someone who's on the road 30 minima. This this is ordained

00:07:48--> 00:08:28

by a law surgeon. This is an obligation ordained by Allah these categories were ordained by Allah subhanho wa Taala will Allahu Allah when Hakeem wala who and even Hakeem Allah Spano are the most knowledgeable and how it is all wise, meaning Allah selected these eight categories for because of his realm, his ultimate Delmon knowledge, these are the most needy of it, and also by his wisdom subhana wa Taala. He chose these categories. Now to receive this account. Of course, if you look at it, these are general titles. Let's talk about them little bit right now. Number one, alpha Cora, what do you mean by fuckery? Because l miskeen. can also qualify us for fear miskeen is needy, alpha

00:08:28--> 00:09:12

is poor, the LMR they argued, are they one category or the two separate categories? And if so, how can we identify both? How can you differentiate between phosphate and mysskin? Generally speaking, they both in need, they're both in need. But how can I tell if a K from a Miskin they gave a specific quality to differentiate between 15 and mysskin? Is that alpha clear? is the one whose need is public and obvious that he goes out and ask the people meaning like saying a beggar in this case, then when someone is always constantly outside, so that a person is always outside basically asked him that he was concerned for you. That's number one, I'll miskeen is a needy person whose need is

00:09:12--> 00:09:51

not very obvious to the public, means you're always in need, maybe he has a job, maybe he earns money, maybe he's doing something but does not is not sufficient to cover their basics, not sufficient to cover the basic not the luxurious life that they have chosen for themselves. Now, the basics, this person is called miskeen. And miskeen usually doesn't ask until they feel that they're they're really trapped, that there is no escape, they're going to have to ask for help. Otherwise, they're gonna fall into you know, more financial trouble. So we have alpha Cora, those who are in need and their need is very obvious, and they asked the people and you haven't seen those no might

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

have some source of income, but it's not sufficient to cover their basics and that's why they're going to have to ask people, these are the two first the first two categories number three

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

Well, Emily and Alia, those are employed to collect the Zika. Why do you think those who are employed to get the Zika should be given from the Zika?

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

Why is your man

00:10:12--> 00:10:14

he's working for the SEC agency? Why should we give them from the money?

00:10:18--> 00:10:21

Because there is no might not be another source of income for them, right?

00:10:22--> 00:10:57

Basically, where we're going to get the money for them. And that's why some people always ask, let's say we have a lot of hamdulillah organization that is sending the money to all the disaster areas, and they help other people and so on. Many people, they keep questioning how you're spending the money, which is a legitimate question. And when they see that some of the money goes to administrative purpose, to maintain the websites to maintain the organization, the expansion, paying for the rent, and so on, they kind of start questioning the credibility of that organization. Well, of course, every organization needs to be put under this reasonable scrutiny so that you make sure

00:10:57--> 00:11:35

that they're not spending the money, you know, wasting that money has to be spent wisely, as much as possible, right? That doesn't mean we always suspect the people simply because they're paying money on administrative, let's say expenses, it's reasonable, because Allah subhanaw taala says, while I'm in alpha, that's number one reason another reason for that is that so they themselves don't start, you know, looking into maybe hiding some of that money. You know, imagine someone who collects does occur. And it goes around collecting from the different like in the past before now, building everything online, and everything is goes automatically and an automated system and so forth,

00:11:35--> 00:12:07

people, they had to go from one house to the other, from one place to the other so they could collect the data from the table. Now, when you start collecting that money, and you go with a bank that is full with 1000s of dollars, not even millions of dollars, if it was gold, don't you think the shutdown is very clever would come and start talking to the person saying, Listen, I mean, that's a lot of money. If you had something because you deserve it, right? You get so tired, you get exhausted you you spend so much time on this, why shouldn't you deserve some of that money? So that's why Allah subhana wa tada by his element, his wisdom subhanho wa Taala his knowledge and his

00:12:07--> 00:12:21

wisdom, he gave them right in this money. Now, how much is that percentage? No, not necessarily. But it depends on case by case scenarios, how they qualify these individuals to receive some of that account. Number four, well, more or less at kulu

00:12:23--> 00:12:40

kulu boom, the people who were trying to bring their hearts closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, those are the people under this category. This is a very general, broad concept right now. Now based on that, can you give me examples of people who are we trying to keep their hearts closer to Allah Subhana? Wa, who could those be?

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

Huh?

00:12:44--> 00:13:18

converts. people when they embrace Islam, when they say shadow Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah should know Mohammed Rasulullah. The woman they give the Shahada. Now your brothers in Islam, right. Some of them, they're going to have to suffer some financial loss. Let's say they were dependent on their families, that dependent on specific organization they work for like missionaries, for example, and all that stuff and so on, suddenly, they lost their job, and they lost their families support, how are they going to survive, there has to be some sort of financial support group or system and the Muslim community specifically us living here in the West, there is no way that like an Islamic any

00:13:18--> 00:13:43

society or Islamic government is going to be sponsoring these kind of activities. It has to be self sufficient project from the within the Muslim community. And we have a lot of these examples. Also, particularly sisters, some of the sisters who are let's say their stay at home moms, when they convert to Islam, and eventually if they lose that social connection, and it basically it my breaks that the family apart. And now all of a sudden they become also

00:13:44--> 00:14:24

an independent on the Muslim community. How are you going to support them? Do you have a system for that? In addition to that, we have some Muslims, who might be going through a lot of financial stress. Because of the job market is law. It's getting very slow financially, things are not going very well for them. So you need also to protect the Muslims from losing their faith and losing their their belief in Allah subhana wa tada perhaps because of the practice of the Muslim, sometimes specific laws living in America over here. Every method has its own specific, let's say a new system and bylaws and how does the cash should be spent and how charities should be distributed. So when

00:14:24--> 00:14:44

people they come in and ask for the gun charity, they have to apply they have to put you know, some application information and so on. But people also specifically those who fall under the category of clean the character of Misaki. They don't like to be exposed, they want to keep things confidential. So we should make the process as easy as possible to the public. In addition to that,

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

yes, I understand that the massage are not designed for that. Massage might not be designed for that so they cannot afford given monthly payments in that regard. However, as much as possible should keep it easy. Specifically if this is the current month.

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

There's a karmani is the hook on the right of these people. It's not the hook on the right of the message. It's not the heart on the right of the givers is the hook on the right of Allah subhana wa Tada, given to those individuals, people, if they are legal recipients, they deserve to take it and receive it. And we should be happy that we can find someone who will take the car money from us, instead of showing them that you know, we're doing them any favor. That's not fair for them. It's actually us who should be grateful to the last panel without to give us the opportunity have given this occur to someone. So these are the first four categories one more, I left it alone. Number

00:15:36--> 00:15:55

five, Will Ferrell club. Number five warfare recap the main a good football club in captivity. Back in those days when the slavery was very active was actually very popular, that people they needed to free some slaves, for whatever reasons, some of them depicted as a confederate expiation of the sin. Some of them are doing it as

00:15:57--> 00:16:11

freeing them from captivity in the hands of the enemies perhaps, and even today, people they might be actually in trouble, they might be in prison, and they're trapped in prison just because of financial debt, then perhaps they need someone to free them. They're in the hands of

00:16:13--> 00:16:51

let's say Warzones that need to be free. So paying a compensation for that Branson's whatever actually circumstances allows people to free others from the hands of captivity, we should pay some money for that as well. And there are some organizations today that are taking care of of many of these new characters trying to help them out. And some of them are even today they're given the photo that if this means that you pay even lawyers to free some of those people from this unjust imprisonment, like in the case of the people in Guantanamo, for example, many of them until now they've been imprisoned indefinitely. So who is defending their rights? So paying that money towards

00:16:51--> 00:16:57

you know, bringing justice to those people over there is also is a valid reason to be among those who have

00:16:58--> 00:17:41

Cavallari mean, a lot, I mean, those who are in debt, meaning they take responsibilities beyond their their ability to maybe to pay or maybe they were unable to pay for whatsoever reason, can we help people out to get out of that debt, because if they don't get out of that debt, most likely, they will lose their livelihood completely. Which means, yeah, now we might say, I can give you these $3,000, for example. But if we don't, after a few months, the financial responsibility that we might need to give this individual from the community becomes $10,000. So better sometimes sacrifice that $3,000. So to help and assist the person from getting out of that sinkhole, and take them out

00:17:41--> 00:18:25

of that debt. Also, one of the facet and the meaning of the mean, are those people who take take responsibility of debts in order to reconcile reconcile between conflicting parties, particularly for blood money. Yeah, and even my son may be dear they call it a deal. So if someone malice cannot protect you and all your families, if someone happens to be the reason for the loss of life of someone else, now, the bereaved family, the victim's family are asking for blood money. And now that blood money somebody comes to negotiate between the two contracts in Ghana, the two families, eventually I was able to secure that money through the promise say, Okay, if I guarantee you this

00:18:25--> 00:18:41

money, would you forgive the person, they say, Okay, if you guarantee that money will forgive that person, now, they might not be able to give that much money. So he himself now become responsible trying to bring and collect some of those occur in order to serve the people in shallow data's life, in order to consult between

00:18:42--> 00:19:27

the two conflicting parties of the Muslim community in fee sebelah, number seven, fee sebelah fee sebelah for the sake of Allah zosen. Now, the other man, they discussed that a lot in the books have, they all agree, they all agree on one category as a default category for feasibility, and that is our geography sebelah. So basically, sponsor these military expeditions. feasibly, that's the first the first category they all agree on, then they disagree. They have this difference of opinion over a hedge. Overall hedge doesn't have to qualify as Disability Law. The vast majority of the fukada said, No, it doesn't, because Allah subhanaw taala conditioned as the

00:19:28--> 00:19:59

the obligation of hedge on ability to go to hedge on financial ability. So if you're if a person is unable to to, to secure the fund to go to hedge, they won't be able to get it to go to a hedge, so there is no obligation on them. So that means you don't have to pay for anybody to go for hedge because the last I would not advise them to go today cannot afford it. But then specific in our time right now. There's a huge argument among the among contemporary scholars regarding expanding the concept of disability law.

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

Does it include the sponsoring Islamic centers? masajid Islamic schools, the who the Koran, Tao project, all these kind of different activities, activities, specifically for Muslims who live in the West? That's a huge argument among the FOCA. I'm not gonna actually answer this right now, because it's debatable issue mandola, if this is a valid concept of feasibility to expand that meaning with that category or not. And finally, our last planetary says, Would Mississippian wellness savvy meaning the traveler, someone who's on the road, let's say someone is coming all the way from the East Coast heading towards to the west coast, they stopped in Dallas. And then their

00:20:40--> 00:21:18

car broke, for instance, or maybe there are they run out of cash. They just checked for massages, Islamic centers, they found this one, they came over here and they said, You know what, we're stranded, we run out of gas, honestly, we don't have enough cash to stay in a hotel, we only have enough to, you know, to supply us to get to our destination, maybe two days from now and so on. So do you guys, can you give us something those people that qualify as ethnicity. And if you give them as a company hamdulillah that's their money is their worth. So you help them with that. And what does that mean? Which which is coming next in shallow data is that you give them as much as is

00:21:18--> 00:21:54

sufficient to help them out and shorten their stay here and secure their arrival to their destination. Now as for technicalities, and how to give them the money, should we give it to them cash, give it to them as cheques, give them gift cards and so forth. These are administrative issues, we leave it to the communities to decide on based on their discretion. They know the community, they know the people, they know the circumstances, and they should really regulate the way that the cash should be distributed. So these are the eight categories that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned sort of the Toba that needs that they're considered the legal recipients of as DACA.

00:21:54--> 00:22:31

Now if this person should should this person be relative or non relatives, we discussed that last week, we said the closer the person to you, the better that is, if there are relatives, righteous people, people of knowledge who are handler can benefit the best and so on, then that the best people to give them those accounts. And if they're not your relatives, if they're not your relatives, then in this case, you look who deserves that the car based on the need. What is our need today, for example, us over here? What is the need around the globe? Perhaps you think people do not deserve it more in Syria, for instance, or deserve it more, let's say in Kashmir, or they deserve it

00:22:31--> 00:23:13

in Africa or anywhere else that you believe they deserve it more. You said the priorities to that extent, other Fukushima that a person perspectives occur can be discussed later in the line as urgent. But let's talk now about the adapt and the etiquettes of receiving that. Zika if someone were to receive the Zika what are the etiquettes that needs to be observed in the American Kodama himolla. He mentioned four of them. Number one, called a Lula and yes Hama anila. tala in nema ojibwa surfers Daugherty, La Jolla, quiere, Houma Hama, where Jana Hama, Hama and Wahid and viola Viola zildjian if someone ever received as a car, this person should know that the reason Allah

00:23:13--> 00:23:56

subhana wa tada made this person, a recipient of a Zika that you got that Zika so there are laws so gel is taking care of your concern about your living laws helping you Allah is relieving you of taking this as a big concern for your life. And making your biggest concern is to please Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that instead of instead of your concerns as becoming now freaking out and getting, you know, scared for your living and for your life, for the children, for your love of life of your children, and so on, a lost parent is taking care of that for you. So listen, if you get yourself in that position, you have your money will be secured to this account. Don't Don't panic.

00:23:56--> 00:24:17

Just go and receive what Allah subhana wa has designated for you. If you believe that you fall under one of these categories, go and ask for it and take it and don't get your concern divided Of course into hamadani. And the other concern for the dunya and and that is based on Hadhrat abdullaah. In the long run, which was mentioned Mr.

00:24:19--> 00:24:45

Haney said Carlos salado selam menjadi Houma Hammond wa hidden menjadi Muhammad wa haddenham Alma Kapha Hello Sara Mama. Whoever makes his concern, whoever makes his concern, one single concern hammelmann the concern for the afra Kapha Hello ceremony Allah subhana wa tada will suffice this person all the rest of the of his concern.

00:24:46--> 00:25:00

So if you make your concern, one thing is to please the last panel, Donna alausa will help you maintain everything else. But if you make your claims your biggest concern is to maintain your your living in this dunya that concern is going to

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

be divided between pleasing your employee, your parents, your children, everybody around you, you get divided. And in this case, you always run out of run out of cash. And you always feel that there's not sufficient and you will never be satisfied with the dunya. And eventually it's going to take so much time just to earn for living, forgetting about the alpha. So that's why he says Allah Selim manjal Hello, Mohammed, Mohammed, just make your concerns one and make the biggest concern for you is to please Allah subhanho wa Taala. The second point he mentioned the second etiquette, he said, and yes, Quran Mati were through Allah who will use nearly that when someone gives you

00:25:38--> 00:26:08

something, you'd be grateful and thankful. You'd be grateful and thankful. So you thank them, you make do for them. And you praise them. These are the three things that he mentioned. And yes, could you say thank you to soccer locker? Number two, where the ruler mellow towards you? Well, it's nearly Baraka Luffy Allah subhana wa tada make people young Mashallah become like you charitable, like you and so on. Just make the grant praise him for the good thing that they have done. And he said, What year kundalika methodology should

00:26:09--> 00:26:39

you thank them not that they're the source of this blessing? No, they're just the mean. They are the mean that Allah Subhana Allah made them they mean for you to receive this charity or the Zika for enamel image Quran us, let us karela because the prophets Allah says in the Hadith melosh Quran as lash gorilla, if you don't think people, you won't be thankful to Elijah, if you're not grateful for people doing to have good deeds, you will not be grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:26:41--> 00:27:17

This is very interesting, because you expect you expect that people who are mainly and if someone comes in asking for help and assistance and so on, that they show, you know, some humility and humbleness. That's what is expected usually. But the problem is when you have people who demand with arrogance, they demand even if it was their health as a as a car money, they still demand that with arrogance, panela. And that's what the professor mentioned about people who will not be entering agenda. And the last panel will not even hear any will not talk or speak to them. One of them he says quite a mistake, that means a beggar who's arrogant. Can you imagine a think of a beggar who's

00:27:17--> 00:27:33

arrogant even. That means when you give, they will never actually be satisfied. Whatever you give them. I remember myself I happened that I was traveling actually to Muslim country one day, and the following day, birdie and I lived in the country and I was driving a rental car.

00:27:35--> 00:28:09

Also, I still didn't have the local currency. I barely had some of the local currencies and it would mean still did not get the chance to do money exchange. Eventually, I arrived at one destination. So one man an older man reading. An older man comes to me running comes to my car. He saw me coming out and he goes Salam aleikum. wa rahmatullah wa barakato. He bought all these papers out of his pocket, and you know, I'm sick with this and sick with that and have this surgery. I have this. I said, you don't have to show me anything. I honestly, I don't want to see any of that stuff. Just how can I help you guys, if you can help me with anything instead? Okay. I will I put them up my hand in my

00:28:09--> 00:28:30

pocket, and I got whatever was there. And it was just change. And all what I had a lot of harmony, but was at least good enough. It's not like any of you humiliating the person. It was good enough still, though, for the standard of that of that place. And I gave it to him. So I put it in his hand and he looks at it. And he goes, that's all

00:28:31--> 00:28:32

and I'm alarmist.

00:28:33--> 00:29:10

I look at it. First I said, Hello, Lakota. And I said, uncle, if you really don't want that money, if you think it's not sufficient for you, I can take it back. I'll give it to somebody else who was more deserving. He goes, No, no, that's better than nothing. And he left and I'm c'est la jolla. A lot of the first and came to my mind is this hadith interview Solanas, Anima mustard? Well, I mean, asking, and he's just now you don't like what you're getting? I don't, it's not that I don't want you to give you more. It just that because I don't, I don't have that money. And we're really what really made me very upset at that moment when I was really about to and to take the money back from

00:29:10--> 00:29:21

him. When he said, he said, Look at you, you're driving this car dressed like that, and this is how much money you gave me. And that's when I said, like I said,

00:29:22--> 00:29:24

I'm sure I got really, really angry.

00:29:25--> 00:29:59

And I just I just furious, but because of his age and who he was, and I said, You know what, fellas, just just go go. And he just left. He just took the money just left panel. And the point is, if someone was put in a position, there's no doubt will you be grateful to what whoever you get, because I'm not the one who's given this to you. I'm just I mean, for you to receive that money which Allah Subhana has distance for you. So take it as if you take it from Allah Subhana Allah might put the Baraka and these may be few dollars that you receive. It's not because I'm not giving you much as much as you're getting

00:30:00--> 00:30:17

That now, an owner lots of hardware knows how much you're going to get after that. So the point here is that he's mentioned to be grateful and thankful to the person, when they give us money to make the art for them, ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bless them or whatever they give them and so on. called Elementor. Mama sugar. Allah, Allah Allah

00:30:18--> 00:30:24

says one of the signs of being grateful, is that you never belittle the charity when you receive it.

00:30:25--> 00:30:44

You never say this is this is nothing like this man said to me, this panel, call Allah Duma. And don't stop criticizing that, while you watch the movie, even if and even if it was defected, don't even mention it. Don't even talk about it. Because this might be the best of what they can offer you. You ask for something, this is the best they can give you.

00:30:46--> 00:30:50

And if they didn't give you the best of what they have, that's between them on the last panel.

00:30:51--> 00:31:13

For you, as a recipient, that's between you and the last one. So just take it and be grateful. If you don't want to take it that's up to you. No, there's no obligation on you to receive it or saying, Okay, I'll take that. If you feel that you're humiliated by this APA, by this gift that they're giving you as a charity, which is the effect decision I want. I really appreciate your help and Chava Thank you very much. I don't think I can take this one.

00:31:14--> 00:32:00

You have no obligation to accept but you have no right to criticize and start cursing the people or even you know, abusing them. While working on a number of different models to swap for refer to the model is to just like we mentioned we mentioned earlier that you the obligation of the giver is always to be little the gift the charity they're given you as a recipient you should be the opposite. Even if it was little should look at it as something great because it's it's a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala call aku daddy Delica la Universidad de la casa virgin, that's not that doesn't run counter. Contrary to seeing this as an AMA blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala because

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

again, whatever you're getting, this is from Allah subhanho wa Taala for in the malayalam was it was

00:32:07--> 00:32:34

nice if you don't see this person as a means for you to receive that NEMA from Allah azza wa jal. That's ignorance. We're in namale Monk whenever monka and yellow acid or Aslan, what is wrong is that you believe that this person is the apostle which means he is the source of that charity. He is not he or she is not the source of the charity. They are just the medium for you to receive that charity which has been distant to you by Allah subhana wa tada because he didn't have any sort of law

00:32:35--> 00:32:37

or the law and

00:32:38--> 00:33:03

the prophets Allah Sam says in the rule headquarters connect with a pharaoh a moot absolute Epson hotta surfaris Kahala that ruhakana Smith debris in the Holy Spirit jabril la Salaam. He whispered to me inspired to me and hulan demo ton of snow soul shall live this word which means no one will die had that is still clear is our agenda until you fulfill your provision. That's your risk and in your lifetime.

00:33:04--> 00:33:10

So if Allah this, then this footage is going to come. So that's part of the rest of that has been given to you.

00:33:11--> 00:33:23

And whatever the status or the third etiquette that he mentioned, and young Laura female, look at what you've been given fair lamea come in hell. Let me help hood Roslin if you know that the source is not Helen, don't take it.

00:33:24--> 00:33:50

If you're going to ask someone you see the person who's coming out who's giving you the charity is coming out for medical store. For example, you know this if this is the person who owns that store, their wealth is not Hello. In this case, don't take it from them. Then Roger London Harada model of a savings account when Gary Minshew Patton tawaran if the money was coming from a source of sugar means a doubtful source, you're not sure if it's halal or haram.

00:33:51--> 00:34:39

In this case, use aloe vera which means be more acidic towards you know, being conservative and in this case, try not to take that don't accept that in the valley Hill. Unless it's getting really really tight on you. If it's getting really tight on you in this case, go you can receive it and take it from uncanny x through QSB harmonica just occurred while a mirror of Lima Harajuku American Mayan cattle fed to a fee a sadhaka. If someone his wealth is mixed between halal and haram and then most of the cast which means most of their wealth is coming from a haraam source. So the basic the guy the person has he has a store in his store. He sells halal and haram haram items but most of

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

it's coming from a haram source. In this case, this person he wants to give this occur. He can give this a cat but don't give it necessarily to one particular individual GIVE IT organization and that organization will give will distribute that the camp to eventually to not necessarily a particular person and the recipient will not know the source

00:35:00--> 00:35:47

All our last panel data will have a logical except that the cat from this person will not. But if they give, then that's fine. Carla usually handled for clelia near Kolkata Hagerty and Omri, la yz and Safi in this case, if the pool feels that it's too It's the it is actually getting too tight on him and he cannot survive without that kind of wealth and money then in this case, it's alright to take it if they couldn't get the most pure. If you couldn't get a soft with a pure in this case you can take that mixed mixed wealth or raga the fourth etiquette and intercom aka sugar he Pema chodron Maya, always try to be as much as possible when you get something, get as much as you need. Don't

00:35:47--> 00:36:28

take more than that. That's what he's saying. So if you start doubting If this is too much for you or not, be careful with that. But for the MOBA holla just take as much as Helen for you to take what I inherited, and don't take more than what you deserve. Then can have Ottoman Lamia doll and then someone was in debt. Only take as much money that will cover that debt. So if the debt is $10,000 don't take 12,000 you paid 10,000 towards the debt and 2000 to go and celebrate that. So keep it just 10,000 as much as you need just to pay off that debt. However in Canada, we're in Canada and Lamia hood inland

00:36:29--> 00:37:11

LA and if someone is going to submit a law in this case they take only how much they really they can help them to get there when acceptable masculinity aka Dr. Dre Hagerty do an AMA is that Mr. Nan Miss if someone is just it's because they are in need and miskeen someone who's needed even though he has money but it's not sufficient just take as much as we'll help you to suffice your basic needs just to cover those basic needs. What could lose alikum Oh cool. How much should that be? He said this is all at your discretion is every individual should fit Allah subhana wa tada first and foremost and they should know better how much they need and then that's that's what they need to ask

00:37:11--> 00:37:53

for. called World War Oh terror Kumari and what is what which means what is best for a person who receives is to fill the last panel with Adam kill stay on the on the conservative side. So my every book I hated has ever been earlier the Ultron he said I remember from the prophets of Allah Salaam few words that he taught, he says Damn, I read Okay, the malaria means lab live that which doesn't concern you, too, that was considered the most and in this case, my Arabic whatever is doubtful to you, whatever is doubtful to leave it and take that which is not doubtful. So in this case, if you kind of start doubting if this is your right hack or not, then in this case you you should stay away

00:37:53--> 00:37:54

from that but

00:37:55--> 00:38:39

then he said Dr. Phil Murphy of Kadena elementary musica, who is the one who qualifies even for the needy, the poor and the miskeen, who is the one who deserve to receive the Zika means how much money should you make in order to say that Okay, now you can take Zika is there a specific amount for that? God was Hey Javi and yagoona, Loki fat and Alabama. What qualifies a person or basically what takes the person out of that eight categories. If they have enough wealth sustains their livelihood on regular basis. Let's say you have a job, you have specific earning whatever money that you collect and you get and you receive it's sufficient to keep the livelihood running on regular basis.

00:38:39--> 00:38:45

And this case they should not be taken from a company called an amendment to job whatever business our cinna

00:38:46--> 00:39:29

craft that they have some sort of like artisans Adria, car rent that they receive our is illegal anything else, maybe they receive inheritance. So in this case, they have enough money in hamdulillah. We're in Kerala, who bought bulky fatty acid amide with MMR, if he had partial risk that is sufficient for them. Then you take only that which you need to cover the other part just to cover all these expenses. Were in lemmya Kula who Delica academically and if you like that all together, then you only take as much as sufficient for you. Well, yeah. Who the Who? The country McPhee, Senator, how much should you receive? And that's a very important question. When you give

00:39:29--> 00:39:52

somebody let's say, someone comes over here, how much should we give them? Is $200 enough? $300 Someone is asking do I need $2,000 because you know, My car broke and it's the only way I can go to my work. If I don't do that. Eventually, I'm gonna lose my job, which I'm already doing to basically barely pay for my rent this and that and so on. I need $2,000 to fix my car, buy a new one.

00:39:53--> 00:40:00

Would that be sufficient to say Okay, here we go. We have 200 $200 for you, although we have maybe 50,000 maybe 10,000

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

arasaka money sitting there and account,

00:40:03--> 00:40:38

if you have $10,000 sitting in zecca account, and someone comes, and you can verify that, indeed, this is something serious, and this person is really a legal recipient who deserve to receive that money to cover their need, should you give them the $2,000 bow should we say now, we have a lot of people might get might also need and $2,000 every two months, we'll give you a shout out data. $500 and you go and find another person to give you the 15 $100 should you give the person the $2,000 or just say $500 so we can cover more people in shallow desert? Come on, what do you guys think?

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

You're given a 2000

00:40:42--> 00:40:47

you give them 2000 if you give them 2000, you're gonna be left with 8000

00:40:49--> 00:41:29

What if someone comes to you later, or maybe 10 people come to you later, everybody is demanding, let's say 15 $100 you won't have enough money right? In this case, you should give the person $2,000 and the risk of the others will come with them inshallah. So don't say no, we will have a lot of people coming and asking and so on. If that need is urgent and immediate, and this person needs that now, for example, don't predict the money now that you collect the car should be given away right away for those people give it to them. And this person is really in need for that. And that's an urgent need. In this case, there is a given to be given as a car color. So basically it says Well,

00:41:29--> 00:41:32

you could Mikoto because the McAfee senator What is

00:41:33--> 00:41:44

he speaking about the standard the life standards of their time, meaning if you give if you receive Zika, you are allowed to ask enough to cover the expense of one whole year

00:41:45--> 00:41:46

means one year.

00:41:47--> 00:41:59

Now of course one year for us how much that is a Jemma talk about the average the average today, the average is 25,000 30,000. That's basically the basic and a minimum almost,

00:42:01--> 00:42:17

to cover the basic needs of a family. That's a family of couple and two kids. But if there are more than that, and the in the standard of living today, you're talking about 40,000 50,000. Now that's of course, we're assuming that we have that much money in our bank sitting in our account, right?

00:42:19--> 00:42:40

You know, if the rich people in the world would give them a car, truly, and they calculate the Zika correctly, you will have millions of dollars if not even billions of dollars, Panama City danza car counts, if the rich people, they give the Zika there'll be billions of dollars sitting there in the account. And if you give it out how to give it to cover the needs of people, there'll be no poverty anyway.

00:42:41--> 00:42:59

But when you have millions and billions, few people to have owning all these billionaires sitting there and accounts, not even an investment, they just can't afford the luxury. That's disastrous. And when you see the people Lama status, very sad that we see these days, what's going on in Syria, and even today,

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

even the United Nations is calling the situation of the refugees, the Syrian refugees, it's a disaster. It's the worst human crisis in our time and this in this century, were the worst human crisis right now. Because even even

00:43:16--> 00:43:41

even the United Nations and the states that pledged the 1,000,000,001 and a half billion dollars to cover the needs of the refugees, they haven't paid their dues yet. And the crisis is increasing and increasing and increasing alarm, Stan. But it's so sad when you see the Muslim oma is busy building all these hotels and all these loftiest skyscrapers and even expansions of the Ottoman Mecca and Medina with billions of dollars

00:43:42--> 00:44:14

over the allotted time, when Allah bless them and opened up the hierarchy from the east and from the west, when they conquered Persia, a sham and Egypt and so on, all the treasures came to Medina, some of the Sahaba they told me, many other topics will cover but how do you have a general handle? We have that much money that might well, why don't we Why don't we cover the cover with with silk. So you have a lot of wealth, it's coming gold and silver and all that stuff. You can afford that it's okay. What was his answer of the law, Juan, Carlos de la, Bhutto, muslimin Allah,

00:44:15--> 00:44:18

because the stomach's of the Muslims, and it's better.

00:44:19--> 00:44:58

I'd rather give it to the Muslim to feed the people then just cover the cover with silk hamdulillah. And we have the wealth to do both for the last soldiers. But unfortunately, when you see that the wealth of the oma is going Yanni, not in the right direction. It's so sad. It's so sad that we spent so much money on expansions and buildings and stuff like that and so on. And we don't look at how serious the crisis of these refugees and needy people around the world Panama now that's for the Syrians, let alone the people the Rohingya and and in Asia as well. That's another story. So there are so much so much need in the world for people to receive. This is just in the Muslim world.

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

Imagine also non Muslim

00:45:00--> 00:45:41

On how many people are out there, who can definitely be left alone, they'll be among the people, if you really take care of them maintain their livelihood, you can bring their hearts to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to Islam, how much money it should be put in there to help and assist people to, you know, to, to come to Allah as the origin. So he remember him Allah when he says give it to the people and cover their needs. Again, that depends on on the situation. He says, they have a job to every Why is every year because its annual Zika. And every time there's a car comes out should be given away right away, shouldn't keep it in your hand, and just given it on monthly basis, just give

00:45:41--> 00:46:19

it to the people and help them out throughout the entire year, as much as possible. For Muslim communities living in the West, of course, we don't have one single agency that collects the care for the Muslims. So that's why every local community tends to take care of its own needy people. However, unfortunately, still, the need is not Yanni covered. Why? Because a lot of Muslims, they choose to send their charity, to the countries that they consider like back home. Many of them from the immigrant background, of course, they send a charity to their back home countries, because they have a lot of relatives and a lot of friends, a lot of you know these people that they assist and

00:46:19--> 00:46:58

they help and there is nothing wrong with that. Provided that they are truly legal recipients who are an urgent need for that wealth. But if they are not in urgent need of that wealth, the Muslims in this society deserve it. They need that help but I know many people they look at the Muslim community being rich so hamdulillah no one really is in need. And if someone is in need, they go on to you know the warfare, the government will will help them out. And that's not fair. How does the Navy SEAL Allah Selim hate us for the long run, live in Ohio compatibility may have been upset that you are not truly a believer on until you love for your brothers, what you love for yourself. So if

00:46:58--> 00:47:32

you truly love yourself, if it's okay with you that you go to the welfare, then you love it for other people, that's that's different. But none of the people would love to see themselves standing in lines, you know, asking help and assistance from maybe from the government and they give them pennies and they see all these scenes and all this humiliation and so on. They should be surprised in a different way more decently as much as they can under the car can take care of that for them. So the Muslims, even the Muslims in America can keep there is a car for the needy and the poor here in this community, whether level two pollution or even for the needy and the poor, for whatever

00:47:32--> 00:48:11

reason the Muslim or neither of hamdulillah they wouldn't have needed the lions in Ramadan, people come and ask for help and assistance because everybody will be covered in sha Allah who terracotta These are just some of the etiquettes and the other that inhabitant Buddha, Muhammad, Allah, Allah Allah, he mentioned in regard to the received recipient of the camp. When we come back next week in sha Allah azza wa jal, we will talk about the sada and the virtue of sort of what are the virtues of sort of cognitive the sort of heart? How should we understand the socket itself? What's the essence of giving money? And how should you really see the subtlety? Is it an obligation? Is it a burden? Is

00:48:11--> 00:48:30

it that you take in from your money are taken from me money is a portion from your money out? Or are you saving when you give Zika when you give her the card and you give charity? This is what we have a discussion next week in Charlotte about a katana when we continue with the secret of sort of part of Zika voila, any question Gemma? Yes.

00:48:41--> 00:48:43

First of all, the question is What about giving,

00:48:49--> 00:49:26

giving charity to anybody Muslim or non Muslim. That's like we said the eight categories here that were mentioned this is for this account. As for this other card, it can be given to anybody, soda can be given to anybody we explained last week that you cannot give us a car, to your ancestors or to your offspring. Means parents, grandparents, children and grandchildren, you cannot give them the account. Why? Because they deserve that need to be to be protected and be taken care of. Prior to even given this account, because if you give this account means you're rich enough.

00:49:27--> 00:49:39

If you are if you are obligated to give the car means you are rich already handed a lot of Bananaman. So you need to take care of your parents, your grandparents, your children, your grandchildren, and when you give them money, you're not giving them charity.

00:49:40--> 00:50:00

So that's the garden the parents and the grandparents and the children as well. As for giving the charity now you can give it to anybody can give it to Muslims, non Muslims friends, relatives faraway closer to you, in any circumstances. It was mentioned in the series the sin of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam which

00:50:00--> 00:50:41

was cited in books of Hadith and as well as an evidence to given this occurred the charity soda to anyone Professor Solomon he said that one time a man he had some some sort of coin in his hand he wanted to give it out. So he said, Well, lots of the cannon Laila tonight I'm going to go and give out the sort of card inshallah some charities. So when when he went out to give his charity and three different nights, three different nights the first night he gave it out, it happened to be the hand of a rich person, someone who's rich, he took it from him. The following night, he gave it to a prostitute. A third night, he gave it to a thief. Every night, he gives that sadhaka people will

00:50:41--> 00:51:24

talk about it next day said, Oh, last night someone gave money to a rich person. And he was a rich person. 100 so I'm gonna give again, a shout out tonight, he gives it back to help as to how to defeat someone gave money to a thief. So eventually, he said he mentioned they keep talking about it. He kept giving his sort of cut and he just kind of got frustrated. But Allah subhanho wa Taala and sent him someone to say or let him know that Listen, you sada handler has already actually is out and your reward has been any given to you. So the rich, maybe he start shying off from from seeing that some people may be less wealthier than him. And they're giving charity so he might start

00:51:24--> 00:51:59

giving charity. The lady who's in need of the prostitute in this case said maybe she's she'll handle when she sees people giving, she would stop doing what she's doing. Maybe she's doing it out of need. And for the thief, when he sees people are giving human really steal their money says you know what? I better just if I'm in need, I will ask. And this handler Obama will save Of course, his life as one not being in danger for stealing. So based on the Standard Model, say there's a sort of that can be given to whatever category regardless, but does occur needs to be given to these eight categories. Voila. Now, what's the second question?

00:52:03--> 00:52:28

receiving charity from a non Muslim organization? Now, just like he says a hammer largely depends on the source. Meaning if you doubt the source, it's a matter of foreign which means it's up to you at your discretion. If you don't know the source, and the source is 100% Haram, isn't this better for you're not taking it unless this is a done necessity? And the sources Hurghada doesn't matter? Well on non any question.

00:52:29--> 00:52:31

So if you guys have any questions?

00:52:33--> 00:52:33

Yes.

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

Now,

00:52:51--> 00:53:01

well, again, if you give the charity you're given the charity Anyway, what they do with that charity is their problem. The question is if you if you go eating with someone, a friend, let's say non Muslim friend,

00:53:02--> 00:53:09

and then you went to the restaurant eventually find out that he doesn't have his wallet with him. So don't worry, I'll take care of it. I'll pay for you.

00:53:10--> 00:53:21

And this case available Thank you very much. He grabs the menu he orders ham or bacon. So what do you do in this case? You say Listen, this is my money. Don't buy don't buy ham or, or bacon. Oh, that.

00:53:22--> 00:53:23

Would you say that?

00:53:25--> 00:53:40

I mean, it's at your discretion. So you know what, if I'm going to be paying for this, can you please avoid the pork products? It's up to you. But you want to give the charity the chariot is timely means you give it to them and they own it, what to do with it. That's their problem.

00:53:41--> 00:53:47

That is the that will be their problem. Again, that's at your discretion and shall hold on. What louder? Yes.

00:53:55--> 00:54:13

situation. And, you know, random people come up to you and you're at Target or whatever. And they'll be like, Hey, you know, my car's broke down, blah, blah, I need money for gas and and I've run into these situations like a few times where it's like the same story. And then you start wondering, like, is this person telling the truth or whatever, like, should we not?

00:54:17--> 00:54:54

Yeah, when you walk in the streets and these people just start stomping around and telling you listen, I'm traveling from here to there, I My car broke down, I ran out of gas and so on. Could you help out with this? Could you do that for me? You know, I've run with one of these in these situations. In many cases, I even had some people actually at the gas station and they don't ask him for cash. So could you just please You know, help me fulfill my tank at least you know, just $10 and I did that said okay, I'll pay basically the gas station open this this pump for example for $10 or $15. You just do it so then you know that they're just needed for the for the car versus asking for

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

cash Now again, should we investigate why the the money for Where are you from? Can I see your ID all the stuff

00:55:00--> 00:55:06

On, you don't have to do that with them. If you want to give, just give and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well, I must say, for Latin,

00:55:07--> 00:55:09

well, I must say for Latina, which means if

00:55:12--> 00:55:16

if a person come and ask you don't, don't scold them Don't,

00:55:17--> 00:55:19

don't shun them, you don't want to give, just don't give.

00:55:20--> 00:55:38

If you want to, if we don't want to give, just say, a lot, they may go after them. You know what, honestly, I don't, I'm sorry, I cannot help you now. But you don't have to investigate. If you suspect something, just give them the minimum. But just the best thing is, if someone asks you for something, don't let them go without giving them anything.

00:55:40--> 00:55:44

At least you give them something. And that's some of the other mandates I've seen of this.

00:55:45--> 00:56:04

fella turn out as for the beggar, never scold the man, when they come to you said, the best way of fulfilling this, or maybe any of practicing the whole Commodus idea is that whenever someone comes to you, just give them something. Anything. Anyone who asks you just give them at least the minimum. One

00:56:05--> 00:56:06

last question, yes.

00:56:23--> 00:57:00

But you have to participate, then don't participate. You don't have to fill out put it in a different cause. You put in a different cause it depends if you don't, if you don't agree with the cause that collecting the fundraising for forever, actually, cause it is if you disagree with that, you don't have to give I mean, there is no obligation given the charity, if you believe in that cause help and assist. And again, it doesn't have to be this when you give charity doesn't have to be particularly for any building a measurable and standard school and so on. If you could do that 100 that's great. But can you participate in giving, let's say charity, to build a shelter for

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

homeless for example, of course, food pantries, for instance, why not help feed the people feed the needy doesn't have to be Muslims to feed him. Of course not just given any cause if you don't believe in that, cause that's up to you. And if you feel suspicious about the cause, don't give it's up to you. That doesn't mean not to give to the right cause or the good cause and shout louder again, that doesn't it doesn't have to be Islamic cause but at least it's a human cause it's a nice and good cause and sha Allah give charity can be given their while on particle number 100.
