We are doing series of tafseer
-yesterday we did the tafseer of Surah Kawthar
-Surah Maa3oon is Surah 107
-was revealed in Mecca and is short
-it talks about Judgment Day
-it has the characteristics of Meccan Surah
-those who don’t pray are referred to as munafiqoon in this surah
-or they hide behind salah to gain status among Muslims
-we will now explain the surah

Have you seen him who denies the Recompense? (Al-Ma'un 107:1)

That is he who repulses the orphan (harshly), (Al-Ma'un 107:2)

And urges not the feeding of Al Miskin (the poor), (Al-Ma'un 107:3)

So woe unto those performers of Salat (prayers) (hypocrites), (Al-Ma'un 107:4)

Who delay their Salat (prayer) from their stated fixed times, (Al-Ma'un 107:5)

Those who do good deeds only to be seen (of men), (Al-Ma'un 107:6)

And refuse Al-Ma’un (small kindnesses e.g. salt, sugar, water, etc.). (Al-Ma'un 107:7)

-if you want to capture someone's attention, you ask them a question
-it will be impossible for that person not to be interested
-Allah started the surah with a question
-it is a teaching strategy

The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection). (Al-Fatihah 1:4)

Al-Qari'ah (the striking Hour i.e. the Day of Resurrection), (Al-Qari'ah 101:1)

What is the striking (Hour)? (Al-Qari'ah 101:2)

And what will make you know what the striking (Hour) is? (Al-Qari'ah 101:3)

It is a Day whereon mankind will be like moths scattered about, (Al-Qari'ah 101:4)

And the mountains will be like carded wool, (Al-Qari'ah 101:5)

Have you seen him who denies the Recompense? (Al-Ma'un 107:1)

That is he who repulses the orphan (harshly), (Al-Ma'un 107:2)

-these are examples where the Qur'an is explaining the Qur'an:
-have we not seen the character of the one who has rejected Yawm al-Qiyamat?
-the one who treated the orphan with harshness is Abu Sufyan
-that is one opinion
-another opinion says it was Abu Jahal
-he was known, in Makkah, to hate the orphans & the poor
-the second opinion is the correct opinion
-the pagans of Makkah were stingy men

Abu Sufyan was stingy
-Hind bint Utbah was told by Rasulallah not to steal
-but she told him that Abu Sufyan was stingy

Narrated By 'Aisha: Hind bint 'Utbah said, "O Allah's Apostle! Abu Sufyan is a miser and he does not give me what is sufficient for me and my children. Can I take of his property without his knowledge?" The Prophet said, "Take what is sufficient for you and your children, and the amount should be just and reasonable. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 64, Hadith #277]

-therefore, Rasulallah told her to take what was necessary,
-without Abu Sufyan knowing it, to take care of her family
-this is not considered to be theft
-Kuffaar men of Makkah were stingy and one of the characteristic
-of the pagans is to be stingy
-because they don’t believe in Yawm al-Qiyamat,
-there is no incentive to give
-the word "Sadaqah" is nowhere to be found in their vocabulary
-the Kuffaar hate poor people and ALLAH said they drive away the poor people
-Bill Gates comes second
-Carlos Slim, from Mexican background and lives in Mexico,
-the wealthiest man on earth
-he has 74.5 billion dollars
-Carlos Slim is 71
-Bill Gates was a university drop out
-in order to become rich, you must work SMART not HARD
-Warren Buffet is the 3rd richest man and he sells ice cream
-he has 50 billion and he is 80 years old
-Larry Ellison is 5th richest, he has 39 billion dollars

Forbes list of billionaires (2011)

Hosni Mubarak & Ghadaffi are far richer than these Kuffaar
-the only reason why the names of these Kuffaar came is
-because the West has transparency
-they need to pay taxes and are held accountable
-but these Tawagheet (Mubarak, Ghadaffi, and all the Arab leaders)
- have more money than all the Kuffaar
-in the Arab countries, there is no transparency and no accountability
-Hosni Mubarak has 80 billion
-but the people of Egypt will have no share of that money
-the Kuffaar think they know who is the richest
-but they didn’t include the Arab leaders
-the Kuffaar of the West are control freaks
-they wish to replace cash with debit & credit cards
-they want to do so because they wish to know
-about your business transactions
-if they change it, they will know which newspaper
-you buy and whether you are right-wing or left-wing
-they can also tell what type of toilet paper you use
-they are truly control freaks
-all this knowledge will reach them because of your credit cards
-because we all live in a web, they can also tell
-who is calling you and who you’re calling
-Carlos Slim sells phone cards and is 71 years old

Bill Gates is 55 years old and is a Harvard drop out
-the USA has the highest number of billionaires
-Bill Gates has more billions than his age (he has 56 billion USD)
-and he is 55 years old
-Carlos Slim is a Lebanese Christian
-People are starving in Kenya, Somalia
-people are homeless around the world
-these men see the condition of these poor people when they turn on the TV
-yet they are able to go to bed with a clear conscious

Have you seen him who denies the Recompense? (Al-Ma'un 107:1)

That is he who repulses the orphan (harshly), (Al-Ma'un 107:2)

And urges not the feeding of Al Miskin (the poor), (Al-Ma'un 107:3)

-to be tight fisted and stingy are the characteristics of the Kuffaar
-the mad dogs of the Middle East are, in reality,
-the richest men in the world
-because they own the oil in the Middle East
-they sell the oil (billions of dollars worth of oil)
-they share this wealth with their families
-and the population gets only crumbs of this wealth
-the Tawagheet makes sure they keep some of that money
-to their armies to avoid a coup d'etat

Do not be surprised
-if you find the names of the Kuffaar
-in the list of the richest people in the world
-the mad dogs of the Middle East are unknown to possess such wealth
-do not be deceived by what you read on the Internet
-the Mad Dogs of the Middle East are sitting on oil wells
-and that is why the people are rising up in the Middle East
-they want jobs and equality in the distribution of wealth
-People ill-treat the orphans
-because they do not believe in Yawm al-Qiyamat
-the story of Khidr & Musa (as) in Surah al-Kahf, is an example

Amr bin Auf (R.A.) narrates that Rasulullah (SAW) said: "By Allah I do not fear poverty and starvation overtaking you, but I fear that you will have abundant wealth at your disposal as it had been at the disposal of the nations before you. You will then become extremely greedy in accumulating this wealth (showing no regard for Halaal and Haraam) just as the previous nations had done. This (greed) will be the cause of your ruin and destruction just as it destroyed the people before you". (Bukhari and Muslim)

-al-Khidr explained to Musa (as) why he fixed the wall
-there was a treasure underneath the wall
-and he knew the people of that particular town were evil
-these people didn’t show any kindness or hospitality to their guests

Stay away from the seven destroyers." They said: O Messenger of Allah and what are they? He said: "Associating with Allah in worship, sorcery, the taking of a life which Allah has sanctified except rightfully, consuming interest, consuming the property of an orphan, fleeing on the day of intense battle and slandering innocent, unknowing, believing women." Muslim & Bukhari

-how on earth will they be just & kind to orphans?
-that is not possible
-therefore, al Khidr fixed the wall to cover up the hidden treasure
-that the father left for his children (the orphans)

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "The best house among the Muslims is the house in which orphans are well treated. The worst house among the Muslims is the house in which orphans are ill treated. I and the guardian of the orphan will be in the Garden like that," indicating his two fingers. [Bukhari]

There are 2 highways or freeways
-or the motorways the steep one leads you to Paradise Highway
-man chose the one that leads him to the Fire
-they didn’t feed the orphans
-or give food in a day of hunger

But he has made no effort to pass on the path that is steep. (Al-Balad 90:11)

And what will make you know the path that is steep? (Al-Balad 90:12)

(It is) Freeing a neck (slave, etc.). (Al-Balad 90:13)

Or giving food in a day of hunger (famine), (Al-Balad 90:14)

To an orphan near of kin. (Al-Balad 90:15)

Or to a Miskin (poor) afflicted with misery. (Al-Balad 90:16)

-the freeway that is flat leads you to the Fire
-they didn’t feed the orphans
-or give food in a day of hunger
-when a woman is on her honeymoon, she should give her baby to its aunt
-if the woman is divorced, has a baby, she must give the baby
-to her ex-husband that is if he is on Deen
-if she remarries, she must hand over her child to her husband
-some people such as the Kuffaar in Europe & America will never say
-"Ta Faddaal" (Come & Join) when they are eating
-they eat alone
-Ibrahim (as) was hospitable to his guests
-he served food to the 3 angels that came to his house
-we serve our guests because we follow the Millat of Ibrahim (as)

Ibn 'Abbas told Ibn az-Zubayr, "I heard the Prophet (SAW), say, 'A man is not a believer who fills his stomach while his neighbour is hungry.'" [Al-Adab al-Mufrad Al-Bukhari, #112]

Mujahid reported that a sheep was slaughtered for 'Abdullah ibn 'Amr. He asked his slave, 'Have you given any to our Jewish neighbour? Have you given any to our Jewish neighbour? I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say, 'Jibril kept on recommending that I treat my neighbours well until I thought that he would order me to treat them as my heirs.' [Al-Adab al-Mufrad, Hadith #105]

Shaikh spent 8 years in Saudi Arabia,
-he had 2 maids that looked after him in every house he went
-and he noticed that no Arab (whether weak or strong in Imaan) eats alone
-no Arab will eat alone because, in that case,
-it would be to betray the Islamic culture

The Messenger of Allah said: “Anybody who believes in Allah and the last day should not harm his neighbor, and anybody who believes in Allah and the last day should entertain his guest generously and anybody who believes in Allah and the last day should say what is good or keep quite”. (Sahih Bukhari (Arabic/English) Vol.8 pg.29 No.47)

-some come to PT to seek Ilm, some come to backbite & gossip,
-some come to look for a spouse
-some are so weak in Imaan, they don’t last in a classroom
-they end up in a chatroom backbiting and slandering Muslims

Muhammad (saw) said: “Whoever can guarantee the chastity of what is between the two jaw-bones and what is between his two legs (i.e. his tongue and private parts), I guarantee paradise for him.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Arabic/English Vol. 8 pg.320 No.481)

-the Arab Culture is sublime that is why ALLAH chose
-it to send HIS noblest Prophet to be Arab
-the Western culture is satanic
-because the Jews know the Arabs are far better than them,
-they are doing everything
-in their power to destroy them through any means necessary
-the Jews said "Nahnu huna Qa Idoon" to Musa (as)
-but the Sahabah told Rasulallah
-that they would fight till death by his side

Miqdad ibn Amr said to the Holy Prophet: “ O Messenger of Allah command us with what Allah has ordained because you have our full support wholeheartedly. By Allah we will never say to you what Bani Israel said to Musa (i.e. you and your lord go and fight while we site and relax). But instead we say to you; you and your Lord go and fight and we shall be with you fighting for the cause of Allah. For by the one who has sent you with the truth if you march towards the highest mountains we shall march with you until we all reach it”. (Seerah an-Nabawiyya by Ibn Hisham Vol 1. Pg.614 & Musnad Ahmad Vol.1 pg.390)

-the Western culture has homos-xuals, the Arab culture doesn’t have that
-Abu Bakr said that it never occurred to him that a man could steep
-so low as to satisfy his s-xual desires with another man
-the Arab culture does not indulge in Zina
-but the Western women sell the stories of their affairs
-to the newspapers and the tabloids
-they have no Hayya whatsoever
-Arab culture is that of Imaan & Hayya

And shyness is a branch of Iman.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

A European & American woman will tell you that she
-doesn’t give you a damn about her or her family's honor
-she doesn’t give a damn when she can make millions
-can you imagine how stingy a Hindu is?
-he would never ever give away a plate of food
-one day Abu Jahal was in his expensive clothes
-and riding his horse and saw Abu Bark feeding the poor
-Abu Jahal said that if it was the Qadr of ALLAH,
-these poor people would find food
-Abu Bakr said "Yes. But ALLAH blessed
-some people with wealth so they should share it with those who are poor."

And when it is said to them: "Spend of that with which Allah has provided you," those who disbelieve say to those who believe: "Shall we feed those whom, if Allah willed, He (Himself) would have fed? You are only in a plain error." (Ya-Sin 36:47)

Following Abu Bakr's statement
, Abu Jahal said that he would never,
-ever embrace Islam because he would have to feed the poor
-he didn’t wish to spend anything and told Abu Bakr was in plain error
-because had ALLAH willed, HE could have fed them HIMSELF
-Ta Sin:47 was revealed following that incident
-the Freemasons call the poor people "scumbags"
-they also call poor people "scroungers"
-"asylum seekers"

ALLAH stroke them with a severe calamity
-the Sun newspaper is a very racist newspaper
-ALLAH stroke them with a severe calamity, overnight, they had to slaughter 1000s of sheep & cows

The Prophet (peace be upon him) also said “Wonderful are the affairs of a believer; for there is good in every affair of his; this is not the case with anyone else except a believer. If he has an occasion to feel delight, he thanks (Allah), thus there is good for him in it. If he suffers affliction, he endures patiently, which is good for him. Reported by Imam Muslim in his Sahih Book of Hadith from Suhayb Ibn Sinan (may Allah be pleased with him).

-when a calamity strikes the Kaafir, he commits suicide
-ALLAH stroke them down with Foot and Mouth Disease
-an angel visited 3 men, one was blind, one was bold, and one had leprosy

Narrated By Abu Huraira: that he heard Allah's Apostle saying, "Allah willed to test three Israelis who were a Leper, a blind man and a bald-headed man. So, he sent them an angel who came to the leper and said, 'What thing do you like most?' He replied, "Good color and good skin, for the people have a strong aversion to me.' The angel touched him and his illness was cured, and he was given a good color and beautiful skin. The angel asked him, 'What kind of property do you like best?' He replied, 'Camels (or cows).' (The narrator is in doubt, for either the leper or the bald-headed man demanded camels and the other demanded cows.) So he (i.e. the leper) was given a pregnant she-camel, and the angel said (to him), 'May Allah bless you in it.'

The angel then went to the bald-headed man and said, 'What thing do you like most?' He said, 'I like good hair and wish to be cured of this disease, for the people feel repulsion for me.' The angel touched him and his illness was cured, and he was given good hair. The angel asked (him), 'What kind of property do you like bests' He replied, 'Cows,' The angel gave him a pregnant cow and said, 'May Allah bless you in it.' The angel went to the blind man and asked, 'What thing do you like best?' He said, '(I like) that Allah may restore my eye-sight to me so that I may see the people.' The angel touched his eyes and Allah gave him back his eye-sight. The angel asked him, "What kind of property do you like best?' He replied, 'Sheep.' The angel gave him a pregnant sheep. Afterwards, all the three pregnant animals gave birth to young ones, and multiplied and brought forth so much that one of the (three) men had a herd of camels filling a valley, and one had a herd of cows filling a valley, and one had a flock of sheep filling a valley. Then the angel, disguised in the shape and appearance of a leper, went to the leper and said, I am a poor man, who has lost all means of livelihood while on a journey. So none will satisfy my need except Allah and then you. In the Name of Him Who has given you such nice color and beautiful skin, and so much property, I ask you to give me a camel so that I may reach my destination. The man replied, 'I have many obligations (so I cannot give you).' The angel said, 'I think I know you; were you not a leper to whom the people had a strong aversion? Weren't you a poor man, and then Allah gave you (all this property).' He replied, '(This is all wrong), I got this property through inheritance from my fore-fathers' The angel said, 'If you are telling a lie, then let Allah make you as you were before.'

...The angel, disguised in the shape of a blind man, went to the blind man and said, 'I am a poor man and a traveler, whose means of livelihood have been exhausted while on a journey. I have nobody to help me except Allah, and after Him, you yourself. I ask you in the Name of Him Who has given you back your eye-sight to give me a sheep, so that with its help, I may complete my journey' The man said, 'No doubt, I was blind and Allah gave me back my eye-sight; I was poor and Allah made me rich; so take anything you wish from my property. By Allah, I will not stop you for taking anything (you need) of my property which you may take for Allah's sake.' The angel replied, 'Keep your property with you. You (i.e 3 men) have been tested and Allah is pleased with you and is angry with your two companions." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol.4, Book 56, Hadith #670]

-two men failed the test
-they were liars & stingy
-they had valleys full of cows yet they lied
-and didn’t give anything to the angel
-therefore, they lost what ALLAH had blessed them with
-the Kaafir doesn’t believe in Sadaqah
-this Surah (al-Ma'oon) is very important
-because ALLAH is teaching us Psychology

Have you seen him who denies the Recompense? (Al-Ma'un 107:1)

That is he who repulses the orphan (harshly), (Al-Ma'un 107:2)

And urges not the feeding of Al Miskin (the poor), (Al-Ma'un 107:3)

And thus do We explain the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail, that the way of the Mujrimûn (criminals, polytheists, sinners), may become manifest. (Al-An'am 6:55)

-many of us study Psychology but the greatest Book of Psychology,
-Psychiatry, and Sociology is al-Qur'an
-in Saudi, there are no old people’s home
-but in UK, there are old people who are dumped in old people’s homes
-Belmarsh is the Gitmo of the UK

Harold Shipman:

Shaikh met a lot of people
-who were big fans of Dr. Harold Shipman, a Jew,
-killed 500 of his patients with Morphine
-these patients were seniors
-the prisoners told Shaikh this doctor did a favour
-to the families of these patients
-these old patients are doing bed-blocking in the hospitals
-so he got rid of them
-one prisoner said he wouldn’t give a damn
-if Dr. Shipman killed his mother because he could inherit her house
-but we Muslims take care of our parents
-as ALLAH commanded us in Surah 17:23

And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you are dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour. (Al-Isra 17:23)

And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: "My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was small." (Al-Isra 17:24)

-do you know how to enjoy your wealth?
-you enjoy it by sharing it

Ibn 'Abbas told Ibn az-Zubayr, "I heard the Prophet (SAW), say, 'A man is not a believer who fills his stomach while his neighbour is hungry.'" [Al-Adab al-Mufrad Al-Bukhari, #112]

-the million dollar question: How do you enjoy your wealth?
-you enjoy it by sharing it
-these men with billions of dollars are unhappy
-they live on Prozac
-what motivates you to look after your parents? it’s Taqwa
-but the parents of the Kuffaar are a burden for them
-they’d rather go to night clubs than to care for their parents
-what motivates you to give? it’s Taqwa
-in 2005, old people died in heat waves
-1000s of them died but their children
-didn’t come to claim their bodies
-the children in Paris left the bodies
-of their parents for the dogs to devour them

Death Toll in French Heat wave Rises to 10,000

Narrated Abu Huraira, the Prophet (saw) said, “The dunya is a prison for the believers and Paradise for the kaafir (disbeliever),” [Sahih Muslim, Vol.4, #7058]

-because the dunya is the paradise of the Kuffaar, they behave like this
-that is the reality of the Kuffaar
-the Qur'an is the greatest Book of Psychology, Psychiatry, and Sociology
-the Munafiqoon of this Ummah do not give Zakah
-and in the last days, Zakat will not be given and ALLAH will not bless us with rain

"A people do not keep from giving the zakat on their wealth except that they will be kept from having rain from the sky. If it were not for the animals, it would not rain at all". (Ibn Maajah, according to al-Albaani it is Sahih, see Silsilat al-Hadeeth as-Saheehah, Vol.1, Hadith No. 106)

If you do not have mercy on the creation,
-why do you expect mercy from the Creator?
-the ONLY reason ALLAH sends down rain is for the animals

...And those who hoard up gold and silver [Al-Kanz: the money, the Zakat of which has not been paid], and spend it not in the Way of Allah, -announce unto them a painful torment. (At-Tawbah 9:34)

-when Rasulallah explained Tawbah:34,
-he said this ayah speaks of the people who didn’t pay their Zakat

"Whoever is made wealthy by Allah and does not pay the Zakat of his wealth, then on the Day of Resurrection his wealth will be made like a bald-headed poisonous male snake with two black spots over the eyes. The snake will encircle his neck and bite his cheeks and say, 'I am your wealth, I am your treasure.' (Bukhari Volume 2, Book 24, Number 486)

-black snakes will bite them in their graves
-when you are stingy, it is to your own detriment
-there is a difference between Faaqir (he lives from hand to mouth)
-and the Misqeen (he has nothing, and he eats the left over of people)
-the Misqeen's situation is worse than the Faaqir
-one of the characteristic of the Believer is to feed the poor people
-Gilead Shalt looks healthy and was swapped
-for over a 1000 Palestinians Muslims
-He looks healthy because we, Muslims,
-treat our captives in a good manner
-Yvonne Ridley was forbidden to visit Shaikh
-because they didn’t want "one radical to visit another radical"
-the Taliban held her captive but she was never ill-treated
-she was treated well and she was fed

And urges not the feeding of Al Miskin (the poor), (Al-Ma'un 107:3)

And they give food, in spite of their love for it (or for the love of Him), to Miskin (poor), the orphan, and the captive, (Al-Insan 76:8)

-therefore after her release, she took her Shahadah
-Muslims' culture in sublime
-when Afghanistan was invaded in 1979 by the Soviets,
-3 million sought asylum in Pakistan
-the Pakistanis didn’t cry out
-"They are coming to steal & eat our food!!"
-but it was the Europeans & Americans
-who called these refugees were "parasites"
-Canada is HUGE but there is hardly anyone living there
-they are very stingy with their Visas
-they worry about their food
-the Arabs use the sea water and make it fresh
-and pump it all over their countries
-33,487,208 people living in Canada and its size is 9,984,670 km²
-Sweden & Australia is in the same position
-China & India has large populations
-yet these large countries such as Canada, Sweden,
-and Australia do not open their doors

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Verily, Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, would say on the Day of Resurrection: O son of Adam, I was sick but you did not visit Me. He would say: O my Lord; how could I visit Thee whereas Thou art the Lord of the worlds? Thereupon He would say: Didn't you know that such and such servant of Mine was sick but you did not visit him and were you not aware of this that if you had visited him, you would have found Me by him? O son of Adam, I asked food from you but you did not feed Me. He would say: My Lord, how could I feed Thee whereas Thou art the Lord of the worlds? He said: Didn't you know that such and such servant of Mine asked food from you but you did not feed him, and were you not aware that if you had fed him you would have found him by My side? (The Lord would again say O son of Adam, I asked drink from you but you did not provide Me. He would say: My Lord, how could I provide Thee whereas Thou art the Lord of the worlds? Thereupon He would say: Such and such of servant of Mine asked you for a drink but you did not provide him, and had you provided him drink you would have found him near Me. [Sahih Muslim, Book 32, and Hadith #6232]

O you who believe! If you help (in the cause of) Allah, He will help you, and make your foothold firm. (Muhammad 47:7)

ALLAH is al-Ghani (the Rich)

Tafseer of 47:7 is to help HIS Deen

Who is he that will lend to Allah a goodly loan so that He may multiply it to him many times? And it is Allah that decreases or increases (your provisions), and unto Him you shall return. (Al-Baqarah 2:245)

-ALLAH asked for a loan in Baqarah:245
-and the Jews used that ayah to insult ALLAH

Indeed, Allah has heard the statement of those (Jews) who say: "Truly, Allah is poor and we are rich!"... (Aali Imran 3:181)

-they said ALLAH is "begging" for a loan and is Poor and they are rich
-a Jew said to Abu Bakr that ALLAH was Poor and they (Jews) are rich
-he got punched on his nose by Abu Bakr
-that ayah [3:181] was revealed for Abu Bakr
-and many other ayat were revealed for him
-if Rasulallah was to take a Khalil, he would’ve taken Abu Bakr
-but he said that the Ukhuwa (brotherhood of Islam) is better

Narrated By Abu Said Al-Khudri...Allah's Apostle said, "The person who has favoured me most of all both with his company and wealth, is Abu Bakr. If I were to take a Khalil other than my Lord, I would have taken Abu Bakr as such, but (what relates us) is the Islamic brotherhood and friendliness. All the gates of the Mosque should be closed except the gate of Abu Bakr." [Bukhari and Muslim]
Shaikh and Bilal Philips held a conference in UK
-many people contributed to that conference in Bradford, UK
-but for some, it was a burden
-Siraj Wahhaj, Dr, Abdullah Hakim Quick, and Yusuf Islam were also in that conference
-salah and Sadaqah are burdens for the munafiqh

When ALLAH asked for a loan (Baqarah:245),
-they believe ALLAH is coning them
-The man who delays his Asr Salah until it is almost Maghrib time,
-that man is a Munafiqh

The time for 'Asr' or late afternoon prayer starts when the shadow of something is equal to itself and ends just before sunset. It is better to offer 'Asr' prayer before the sun becomes yellow because even though it is allowed to offer the prayer at this time the Prophet (saw) disliked Muslims to delay 'Asr' prayer. He remarked that the (hypocrites) offered their prayer at this time. [Ahmad and Nisai, agreed upon]

So woe unto those performers of Salat (prayers) (hypocrites), (Al-Ma'un 107:4)

“What is the most beloved act of worship to Allah? And he said: “The prayer at its prescribed fixed times.” Then I asked: “What is next?” He replied: “Then being kind and dutiful to the parents.” I again asked: “What is next?” He replied: “Jihad in the way of Allah.” He [‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood ] said: He [the Prophet ] told me this and if I were to ask him more questions, he would have told me more.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Those who do good deeds only to be seen (of men), (Al-Ma'un 107:6)

"Yura'un : to pray Salah in order to be seen by others

(Remember) the Day when the Shin shall be laid bare (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) and they shall be called to prostrate (to Allah), but they (hypocrites) shall not be able to do so, (Al-Qalam 68:42)

Narrated By Abu Said: I heard the Prophet saying, "Allah will bring forth the severest Hour, and then all the Believers, men and women, will prostrate themselves before Him, but there will remain those who used to prostrate in the world for showing off and for gaining good reputation. Such people will try to prostrate (on the Day of Judgment) but their back swill be as stiff as if it is one bone (a single vertebra)." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 60, Hadith #441]

ALLAH will expose HIS Shin on Yawm al-Qiyamat and all will make Sajdah
-except the ones who prayed in order to be seen by men will have their backs stiff
-in Europe & America do not know the names of their neighbours

And refuse Al-Mā'ûn (small kindnesses e.g. salt, sugar, water, etc.). (Al-Ma'un 107:7)

-because they fear "Ma'oon" (small acts of kindness)
-will be requested from them
-A woman in South Africa was sick and requested a lift from Shaikh,
-but Shaikh refused because he feared the people
-will become suspicious of him
-what Shaikh did was that he gave her the money for a taxi
-he didn’t refuse her the "Ma'oon"
-If you have a shop and there is a person
-who spent 200 USD but is short $1
-but you tell them they don’t even owe you a single penny
-that is another act that is known as "Ma'oon"

And you love wealth with much love! (Al-Fajr 89:20)

Such people are the people of "Maa3oon"

-and they refuse for you to say
-that you owe them a red cent
-they violently hang on to Jannah

Verily! Man (disbeliever) is ungrateful to his Lord; (Al-'Adiyat 100:6)

And to that fact he bears witness (by his deeds); (Al-'Adiyat 100:7)

And verily, he is violent in the love of wealth. (Al-'Adiyat 100:8)

-man is vicious & atrocious
-Aqeedah of Machiavelli, "the end justifies the means"
