saw need how

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

many Mina most Nene

00:00:21--> 00:01:11

have the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the name Allah Karim. And in fact this name of Allah can be said that it was the first name that Allah informed us through the Quran. Because in the first revelation of Quran, Miss Rebecca the hara, Calacanis, Adam and Adam Carolla Bukal. A crumb. So the first name that Allah subhanho wa Taala chose to announce to us through the revelation of the Quran was the name a crumb, which is of course the superlative of Kadeem, Kadeem and a chrome and the notion of Chrome or Kareem in the Arabic language. It implies generosity with a for when we say but speak of human beings, generosity, with a generous spirit as well. Because you see, you can be

00:01:11--> 00:01:58

generous outwardly, and inwardly, you're suffering. Why did I give? That's not kidding? The Kareem is the one who gives outward and inward that's the Kareem. This is the definition of even Misko a one of the great aroma of Adam in our tradition, it'd be Miss Galloway said that came in the Arabic language is the one who gives for good causes freely without having any tinge in his heart without feeling a pinching. Why did I do that? No. The Koran has to be from the heart and from the hands, then you are called Kadeem and you give freely for that which is beneficial to mankind with your heart being generous as well. So when Allah is Allah Karim, of course, when Allah azza wa jal

00:01:58--> 00:02:42

describes himself with any name, the reality is beyond our understanding, but we understand the concept, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala gives and then and he gives because his nature is the nature of giving. And he gives because he loves being generous. And Accra means no one can be more generous than Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So Allah is Al Karim, and Allah is an acronym. And Allah describes Gibreel as being Kareem. We're in now Hola. Hola Rasool in Kareem and the O word in ended the regime again and matar and me This is Julian. So Allah describes Gibreel as being the Karim Messenger, and in another verse Rasul and Kareem is a reference to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:02:42--> 00:03:29

sallam. So the Prophet SACEM is also Kadeem. So Allah is Al Karim and Jubilee is Karim and the Prophet system is Karim and then the Quran itself. Allah subhana wa Tada says, When hola kita Boon Karim. It is a Karim book The Quran is a generous book meaning it is giving and giving and giving and you can keep on taking from the Quran. The Quran itself is a book that is getting there is no book that is more generous to us and gives us more than the Quran. And Allah subhana wa Taala loves Karim our prophecies and said Hadith isn't the most thorough and Hakim in Allaha que de mon you hipbone Karim, Allah is Karim and he loves generosity. So when we are generous Allah subhanho wa

00:03:29--> 00:04:15

Taala loves the one who is generous, even Taymiyah said to are the characteristics that causes society to flourish. Two are the characteristics that are necessary for any human civilization, Karen and Shuja generosity and bravery, generosity help society itself amongst itself and bravery help society against others. So carom is for internal because when you're generous right now we're going through a COVID crisis, right? There are people without jobs people without food. The last month we had the the winter in Dallas Karam, it helps people that are in need. When a society is Kadeem, it flourishes internally and when a society is brave, it can protect itself from external

00:04:15--> 00:04:59

threats. So even Taymiyah said to are the characteristics that require that are required for any society to succeed internally, it requires custom externally it requires bravery. And both of these, he said are Islamic characteristics. So Chiron is an attribute that is beloved to Allah subhana wa Tada. And our scholars mentioned that the Kareem the Kareem gains more when he gives his money than when he keeps his money. I repeat that Kareem gains more when He is Generous versus when he keeps how so? What does the Kadeem gain? When he is generous? What does he gain? He gains the hearts of mankind. He gains the love of the people and

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

The Love of Allah, he gains the genuine respect and brotherhood of the people around him. And this is true for Muslim and non Muslim carom is so beautiful of a characteristic that it transcends even Iman, the one who is Kareem and kaffir is beloved to the people in this world, at least in this world, at least the one who is Korean and doesn't have a religion is beloved to people. And that's why we erect medals, we give honors we meet, we make prizes for people who are carrying in the world. That's the way we do it. In pre Islam, the most famous and beloved out of was how Tim a thought he had to makai why was he famous? What was he known for Karam, anybody could come and he

00:05:45--> 00:06:27

would feed him house him. His tent they saved was larger than any tent in Arabia, his animals would be sacrificed, you know, freely without count. So people loved him. His son is it had been Hatem, the famous Sahabi his son accepted Islam, the father died pre Islam so Hatem McCoy was the famous out of who is known for Quran. And one of the ways you know how great Karim is is by looking at the opposite the Arab say by looking at the opposite, you understand what we're talking about, the opposite of Karim is stinginess, miserliness and Allah subhanaw taala curses stinginess, and Allah hates stinginess. Alladhina yerba Haruna way up Munna NASA will buckle. One mama Mikayla was still

00:06:27--> 00:07:12

in our Canada bubble. RSNA Allah mentioned stinginess in very very negative language and literally links it to the fire of hell. He literally links being stingy to the fire of hell Subhanallah Imam Muhammad said Imam Muhammad said the more men the believer cannot be stingy the believer higher level than Muslim. The believer cannot be stingy. It is the nature of the believer to be generous, it is the nature of the believer to share and to help others if you want to get to the level that Eman you cannot be withholding and stingy and so dear Muslims let us be generous Let us love generosity let us give and it's not just money by the way cut I'm also implies giving that which for

00:07:12--> 00:07:52

example somebody doesn't have a car you give them a ride in your car that is generosity okay cut on his also time somebody might need your time cut on his also sharing your honor or something that shafa out for somebody that you know you get involved in a good Shiva and Allah says if you get involved in a good chef ah you will get reward so Karim isn't just money, it's something of the heart. You want to help people and you want to be generous and Subhanallah so much can be said again always time is limited will lie amazing thing brothers and sisters amazing thing. The word Karim means generosity. But the Arabs used it to imply nobility. Because you cannot be no bow without

00:07:52--> 00:08:43

being generous. The original meaning of Kadeem is generous. But eventually the word Karim and Kareem actually implies now in the modern vernacular, it means you're a person of dignity and respect and nobility and the Quran therefore uses it in this aspect in a Karana calm and Allah he at corkum. Notice, a chroma come here doesn't mean the most generous, economical means the most noble why? Because you cannot be noble and respected and dignified. If you are stingy. To be noble, you must be Kadeem. So the term Kadeem actually is not just generous anymore, it actually means that you are noble and respected. And all of this we wind down because we are now coming to the month of Chiron

00:08:43--> 00:09:28

and a sibling Malik said, Can Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a karamo NASCIO Eduardo NAS were ushered to Maya Khun Fisher here Ramadan, that the prophets of Saddam was the most generous of people and the most giving of people and then he said, and he was the most a column in the month of Ramadan. We're not having the month of Ramadan, less than two weeks away. We want to be Kadeem in Ramadan. We want to give and give and give this month of Ramadan. So much so unnecessarily, Malik said it was as if his Koran was like the wind blowing everybody felt his gut on the wind coming from the desert, the whole city could feel his Karim that Karim came especially in the month of Ramadan.

00:09:28--> 00:10:00

So let us prepare ourselves into the spirit. This is the month of giving demarcate charities look at where you want to give your money find causes hunt down people give people actual people because it's very good to give to causes and you know, online charities but Allah had the ultimate sadaqa when you find somebody in your own localities that is worthy. Go find people or refugees or whatnot that you can deliver food to that is the ultimate Karim when you go and find somebody and you give that person a good

00:10:00--> 00:10:35

So this is the end just to hear from me that's the ultimate Karim buddy yes give to causes and charities as well start thinking how much am I going to give an insha Allah to Allah one Ramadan comes, raise the bar now put a mind in your head figure it out calculate it, put your bank accounts but when Ramadan comes, raise that bar and you will give inshallah more than what you do and figure out where you're going to give and how you're going to show calm and be generous to your friends and family and neighbor. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day let him show come to his guests and to his neighbors and to everybody showing Karim for you

00:10:35--> 00:10:52

cream Jarrah. Well you couldn't play for believing in Allah and the Last Day means you will have Karim to everybody around you may Allah subhana wa Tada make us amongst the Kurama both in giving and also in nobility and inshallah will continue later Zack will know Harrison Ahmadi
