In a well-known Hadith the Prophet Muhammad, Blessings and Peace upon him, once asked his companions, who was bankrupt among his nation. They proceeded to mention the one lacking material means. He, peace upon him, responded that the truly bankrupt person was one lacking righteous deeds on the Day of Resurrection, while having insulted, slandered and demeaned others. Imam Suhaib will examine the implications of this Hadith and discuss its relevance for our lives and times. He will situate that discussion in the context of a deeper examination of the idea of religious poverty.

The Hadith study is based on the following Hadith:
Yahya related to me from Malik from Zayd ibn Abi Unaysa that Abd al-Hamid ibn Abd ar-Rahman ibn Zayd ibn al-Khattab informed him from Muslim ibn Yasar al-Juhani that Umar ibn al-Khattab was asked about this ayat - When your Lord took their progeny from the Banu Adam from their backs and made them testify against themselves. Am I not your Lord? They said, Yes, we bear witness Lest you should say on the Day of Rising, We were heedless of that. (Sura 7 ayat 172) Umar ibn al-Khattab said, I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, being asked about it. The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, Allah, the Blessed, the Exalted, created Adam. Then He stroked his back with His right hand, and progeny issued from it. He said, I created these for the Garden and they will act with the behaviour of the people of the Garden. Then He stroked his back again and brought forth progeny from him. He said, I created these for the Fire and they will act with the behaviour of the people of the Fire. A man said, Messenger of Allah! Then of what value are deeds? The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, answered, When Allah creates a slave for the Garden, he makes him use the behaviour of the people of the Garden, so that he dies on one of the actions of the people of the Garden and by it He brings him into the Garden. When He creates a slave for the Fire, He makes him use the behaviour of the people of the Fire, so that he dies on one of the actions of the people of the Fire, and by it, He brings him into the Fire.

The Jews are the only people in the world who have found hostility in every country in which they settled in any numbers. The big question is — WHY?Today it is taught in the schools that began in Germany in the 1930s after which they were deported. What is not studied is the fact that at one time or other the Jews have been expelled from every nation in Europe! When the Jews first began to immigrate to America the early colonialists in New York, Charleston and Savannah tried to ban their entry. Benjamin Franklin pleaded with the members of the Continental Congress to enter a specific ban against Jewish immigration into the U. S. Constitution to bar them for all time to come.
The Jews claim that they are a religion. The truth is that the Jews are a RACE. Less than 30are members of any Synagogue. Whether they are Orthodox religious, atheists, capitalists or communists — they still claim to be Jews — members of the Jewish race! Every race has inherited traits. In the case of the Jews they include trading, money-changing, usury, and a loathing for which is scorned as beneath the dignity of the Jews in their called
The Jews have not changed since the days when Jesus Christ took up a whip and drove Jews have always united to form monopolies. Today they control all the department store chains and specialty shops along with the lucrative jewelry and animal fur trade. Jews dominate the fields of all precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum, tin, lead, etc. They will always ban together to drive Gentile competitors out of business.
Today America is being flooded with Jewish immigrants from Russia and even 20,000 per year leave Israel for the U. S. — all with dollar signs in their eyes. Jews have used their vaunted money-power to seize control of the Democratic Party and constitute over 50of all its financial contributions. Today they are buying up more and more major U. S. companies. While only 3of the population, the Jews control over 25of the nation’s wealth and this percentage rises every year. They are the only racial group totally organized to work for political domination over America.
Opposition to the Jews did not begin in Germany but dates back before the birth of Christ over 2,000 years ago! Study the statements made by They reveal why the have made enemies out of every host country that ever accepted them.
CICERO (Marcus Tullius Cicero). First century B.C. Roman statesman, writer.
(Oration in Defense of Flaccus)
Cicero was serving as defense counsel at the trial of Flaccus, a Roman official who interfered with Jewish gold shipments to their international headquarters (then, as now) in Jerusalem. Cicero himself certainly was not a nobody, and for one of this stature to have to shows that he was in the presence of a dangerously powerful sphere of influence. and on another occasion Cicero wrote:
SENECA (Lucius Annaeus Seneca). First century Roman philosopher. (De Superstitione)
DIO CASSIUS. Second century Roman historian. Describing the savage Jewish uprising against the Roman empire that has been acknowledged as the turning point downward in the course of that great state-form: (Roman History)
DIODORUS SICULUS. First century Greek historian.Observed that Jews treated other people as enemies and inferiors. is the practice of lending money at excessive interest rates. This has for centuries caused great misery and poverty for Gentiles. It has brought strong condemnation of the Jews!

MARTIN LUTHER, Table Talk of Martin Luther, translated by William Hazlet, page 43
REV. GORDON WINROD, in his book The Keys to Christian Understanding, pages 114 – 115 Paul said: (Gal. 1:13, 14, Weymouth Translation).
While in Judaism, Paul persecuted Christians because of his intense hatred for Christians and because of his conformity to the tradition of the fathers. This shows that the tradition of teachings of Judaism are filled with hate for Christians. Few people know of this because they do not carefully read their Scriptures and because of the great pains which Jews have take to deceive the Christians. Care has been exerted by the Jews to hide their ECONOMIC-POLITICAL conspiracy for complete world domination UNDER high sounding words that have a ring in the ears of Christians. The Jews use such sounding words as and like phrases which deceive and lead the unlearned into total equanimity. Behind this mask of religiosity stands a complete plan for world government, world power, world conquest, a Jewish kingdom of this world, and the destruction of Christianity.

DIDEROT, DENIS. 18th century French scholar. His famous ENCYCLOPEDIE, the bible of the pre-revolutionary French has often been complained of by Jewish writers as ‘anti-Semitic.’ Some of Diderot’s other writings are likewise unfriendly:

HARRINGTON, LORD. 19th century British statesman. Opposed admission of Jewish immigrants to England because:
WORLD FAMOUS MEN of the past accused the Jews of founding Communism. This charge is well founded. The Communist philosophy was drawn up by Karl Marx who descended from a long line of Rabbis. His ideology of anti-Christian and Socialist thought is outlined in the Jewish which is the of the Jews. Of the four political groups which overthrew the Christian Czar of Russia two were 100Jewish. They were the Mensheviks and The Jewish Bund. The other two were the Socialist Revolutionary Party and the Bolsheviks. Both were headed by Jews but had some Gentile members. Today we now know that Lenin was Jewish and all of the leaders of his first government were Jews. They were Trotsky, Zinoviev, Kamenev and Sverdlow.

InshAllah you are really well.
Now, I want to ask you a question. How are you feeling? Seriously, are you well, are you in great health? Why am I asking? Well I ask, simply because who really knows? All we do know is this, that the Messenger of Allah said:
`Take advantage of five matters before five other matters: your youth, before you become old; and your health, before you fall sick; and your richness, before you become poor; and your free time before you become busy; and your life, before your death.`
With this I ask you a favor, can you join me in something that will not take much from your time, but without question will be a starting point to take on all five of these Prophetic pearls?
Yes, there is a Shaikh in the USA, Dr Ibrahim Dremali, and he has of late become very sick. After years of service of this religion and its followers, he needs some help with his rocketing medical bills; a phenomenon literally killing millions of people in the richest country in the world! To aid him, we had arranged a small fundraising event online with some of your favorite speakers including Shaikh Tawfique Chowdhury and Shaikh Alaa Al Syed Through this you can take advantage of: your youth, before you become old; - Using your young techy skills before you get old and do not know how to use all the new IT phenomenon of the time. and your health, before you fall sick;
- Using you ability to even attend such an event, before la qadr Allah, you become sick and unwell and unable to attend such an event. and your richness, before you become poor;
- Using your wealth before it returns to the one who gives it. Imagine if we reach our target for the number of people to attend, and everyone chipped in $10, essentially the cost of a Pizza, the Shaikh would have $10 000 to help with his medical bills. and your free time before you become busy;
- Using the time on the 28th to benefit from the knowledge of this religion which will inshAllah help you on the road to Jannah; a great starting point for Ramadan. Putting it in your diary now, will help earmark the time, so you cannot be busy on that day too! and your life, before your death.`
- Using your ability to even complete anymore good deeds, before your soul returns to Allah. Not one of us can be assured we will even be alive for the webinar, but we all know this, if we intend to make it now, and even maybe chipin the $10, then this will be written in our good deeds inshAllah, even if we did not live to see the day.

Speaker:Shiekh ;Yahya Ibrahim
As Muslims, we should not let our emotions get the better of us. It is certainly difficult for a person to look at the tragedies of the world today and not feel helpless and sad. But believers are called to put their trust in their Lord, and not to fall into despair or hopelessness. We must continue to do what Allah has called us to do: put our trust in Him, perform good deeds, and stand as witnesses for justice and truth.

Ibn Abbaas, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: There are no days during which good deeds are more beloved to Allah than these days; meaning the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah. They inquired: Not even Jihad in the cause of Allah? He said: Not even Jihad in the cause of Allah, unless one goes out for Jihad sacrificing both his life and property and returning with neither.

In the Name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful,
May Allah send His peace and blessings upon the most beloved of Messengers, Muhammad (SAW).
Have we forgotten the purpose of our lives?
Sometimes we think we exist just to have a good time.
So we indulge in satisfying our lusts and desires,
Even if means becoming hypocrites, thieves and liars
We forget the sole reason Allah created our souls.
It is to worship Him alone, until they bury our bones
Never faltering, never shifting, away from our Iman,
Remaining true to Allah as best as we can.
But beyond this belief in our hearts come our actions
Balancing obedience to Allah and appeasing satisfactions
What is a Muslim who forgets the commands of His religion?
One who is blinded by Dunya, and lost all vision?
Have we forgotten that we have one of two destinations?
Hell is for the transgressors, and Jannah is for the patient.
In this test we can enjoy ourselves, and be pleased with our lives,
But the reason we live is to worship Allah, and this will not change until we die.
In the sorrow and regret of the most horrific of days,
We would wish to return to Dunya, only to change our ways.
A Day on which we would beg Allah on our hands and our knees,
Return us to this Dunya! So we can salvage our Deeds!
You have had your chances and received your warnings!
But remember when you slept during the early mornings?!
When you neglected Fajr, and did not keep up with your Salah?
You were cheap and you were greedy, and did not pay your Zakah!
You indulged in the obsession of this Dunya with the sinners,
And prevented your own self the company of the winners.
Who might they be, if you ask as you listen?
The winners are those who answered their Lord in submission.
They obeyed Allah and realized life is mission:
To submit to the One who created you from clay,
and to fear the most horrifying, detrimental of days
These winners are the ones who enjoined in the worship of their Lord:
They kept their covenant with Allah, not breaking one word.
Prayer by prayer, Day by Day,
Holding firmly to the Quraan, while following the Prophet s way.
The best of the Muslims receive Jannah is delight.
Because they fasted through the day and prayed Tahajjud through the night.
They fulfilled the necessary obligations and did more,
They kept their loyalty to the One who they lived and died for.
Let us all reflect, as to how we may be viewed by the Sublime.
Are we of the hypocrites who do not even pray on time?
Of the losers who worship every nickel and dime?
Of the animals who do not treat fellow Muslims with respect?
Of the enemies of Allah whose commands we neglect?
Are we the sinners whose own lives we will regret?
Or have we devoted ourselves to pursuing Paradise?
Of the Muslims whose actions are intelligent and wise?
Of the noble who tell only truth with no lies?
Of the pious who pray every prayer on time?
Let us Never forget our aim for Paradise,
We must worship Allah, through all of the sacrifice.
For those who fall short, Jahannam is their destination.
Allahs Judgement is most Supreme, and His is the best of legislation.
So Ya Allah! We beg of you to guide us the straight path!
And we seek refuge with Your mercy from the torment of Your wrath!
Ya RABB! Grant us patience and let us die in submission!
Let us realize and succeed in the struggles of lifes mission!
We are for You and to You we return,
So grant us refuge from Hellfire s burn!
Grant us the peak of Jannah with the Prophets, martyrs and righteous,
For none exceeds You in Your generocity, O Lord of Kindness!
And send Your peace and blessings upon he who You have sent to guide us,
To make us of the pious, and bring us out of the blindness
All praise is due to You, Lord of the Heavens, the Earth, and all that is between.
Master of the Universe, All-Knower of the Unseen.
