Bismillah…

-HAQEEQAT AL FAQIR
-this is a new topic and we have to cover what is happening in the Middle East
-and we have to review fiqhul waqia again even though we did the mad dogs of the Middle East
-we still have to do it using a different name

DEFINITION OF POVERTY


-it is defined as the lack of money to cater for your basic human needs
-and anytime you spending more than you earn, you are poor

THE HUMAN NEEDS


1. FOOD

2. CLOTHING

3. SHELTER

4. CLEAN WATER

5. HEALTH CARE

6. TRANSPORT

7. ELECTRICITY

8. TOILETRIES

9. EDUCATION

-toiletries is like toothpaste and soap and if you do not have these you are poor
-also perfume is part of toiletries
-skin care lotions etc all the things you need for hygiene

It is estimated that a billion people live under the 1 dollar line
-and sometimes poverty is a man made thing
-like the illuminatis bully you to toe the line
-if you do not dance to their tune they destroy your currency or your country
-e.g. the embargo imposed on Iraq for 30 years caused poverty
-even though Iraq was a rich country

Sanctions against Iraq:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanctions_against_Iraq

They can also use acid to hold back the rains in your country and cause poverty
-they have sanctions of Afghanistan
-that is a rich in Diamonds

AFGHANISTAN HAS DIAMONDS:
http://www.bgs.ac.uk/afghanminerals/preciousstone.htm

-they also sanctioned Libya because they accused a man of bombing
-and there is evidence that he is innocent

New evidence casts doubt in Lockerbie case:
http://www.aljazeera.com/news/africa/2012/02/201222618624894299.html

-the bomb was planted by an Ayatollah to take a revenge on America
-the Ayatollah paid a man to do the Lockerbie bombing
-but Libya have been sanctioned for years for something they did not do

Poverty is used as a weapon by the Shaytan

Shaitan (Satan) threatens you with poverty and orders you to commit Fahsha (evil deeds, illegal sexual intercourse, sins etc.); whereas Allah promises you Forgiveness from Himself and Bounty, and Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knower. (Al-Baqarah 2:268)

-the translation put in bracket illegal sexual deeds
-so poverty is the single factor that causes prostitution
-and Allah told you the believers they will forever fight you

...And they will never cease fighting you until they turn you back from your religion (Islamic Monotheism) if they can. And whosoever of you turns back from his religion and dies as a disbeliever, then his deeds will be lost in this life and in the Hereafter, and they will be the dwellers of the Fire. They will abide therein forever." (Al-Baqarah 2:217)

They want you to have the Hollywood culture
-so they want to fight you economically with the World Bank
-culturally with the movies, they make movies like Pretty Woman to glorify prostitution
-so their movies are not just harmless fun, you have to look at the broader perspective

Every movie has a theme
-and if you allow your daughter to watch Pretty Woman she is finished
-Teletubbies is a gay TV program to corrupt your kids
-so they try to turn your kids into homosexuals with these cartoons

They use the media to fight you using Fox News etc
-and they are very biased with their racism and they are vicious with their fight

The kuffaar are very keen to impose poverty on you to make you apostate in your Deen

“Poverty, in all probability, leads to unbelief (kufr).” [Bayhaqi and Tabarani]

-and Umar said verily poverty leads to kufr
-almost poverty became kufr
-if poverty was a man I would have killed him with my own 2 hands

The rasul (SAW) used to seek refuge from poverty

Narrated By 'Aisha: The Prophet used to seek refuge with Allah (by saying), "O Allah! I seek refuge with You from the affliction of the Fire and from the punishment in the Fire, and seek refuge with You from the affliction of the grave, and I seek refuge with You from the affliction of wealth, and I seek refuge with You from the affliction of poverty, and seek refuge with You from the affliction of Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal" [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 75, Hadith #387]

-and also from the dajjaal, punishment of the grave
-so why do you think it is cool to be poor?

Abu Hurayra said that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), said, "The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer although there is good in each. Desire that which will bring you benefit, and seek help from Allah and do not give way to incapacity. If something happens to you, do not say, 'If only I had done such-and-such.' Rather say, 'The decree of Allah. He does what He will.' Otherwise you will open yourself up to the action of Shaytan." [Sahih Muslim, Book 33, Hadith #6441]

The strong believer is better in the sight of Allah than the weak Muslim
-weak economically and physically
-but there is good in both of them
-because even though you are weak economically you can do jihad
-if you are weak physically you can do Dawah on the computer

CAUSES OF POVERTY

1. DRUG ADDICTION

-some people are poor because they spend all their money to buy drugs

2. ALCOHOL ADDICTION

-a lot of these poor people dying from the cold have drug addiction

3. A GAMBLING ADDICTION

-a Muslim woman is not allowed to live with a man with these addictions

4. PROMISCUITY


-there are women with 5 kids from 5 different men in darul harb
-and these women are left to fend for themselves, what a stupidity
-and this man just had a fling with you, so why did you get pregnant?
-they impregnated her and left her
-and some of them do not even know the names of their kids, much less their dates of birth

Luis Farrakhan said he only saw his father once and he only saw his head
-so he never had a father and because of slavery some men have many, many kids
-they do not have wives but baby mothers
-Shaikh met a man with 27 kids
-and this man used marijuana to attract the white kuffaar ladies
-these people smoke marijuana to escape their problems

Poverty leads to promiscuity
-and if you were married you would not have been in this situation
-how can you provide for your kids their basic needs? when you have 27 kids

5. LACK OF EDUCATION


-people who are not educated are not employable and even if they get it, it is a low paying job
-many of you can not make Hijra because you are not educated
-and if you should go to Saudi Arabia they will send you out
-many educated men migrated to Saudi and they had good jobs and the jobs are tax free there

6. LACK OF SKILLS, PROFESSION


-you are not a mechanic, mason etc and because of that you are not employable
-even if you are not educated, you can be skilled
-in building or mechanics and you will earn a living

When Umar was caliph he saw a pious man and he had respect for him
-but when he asked him what he does for a living
-the man replied that he lived off on his brother
-so Umar said I have lost all respect for this man, he is a burden on the state

7. A LONG TERM PRISON SENTENCE


-in prison they pay you 20 dollars a week for your labour
-and prison destroys your 6 sacred things

i. LIFE
ii. WEALTH (it is the new slavery)
iii. HONOUR
iv. LINEAGE
-you can not impregnate your wife
-only US has conjugal visits, but not in the UK
-so it is not allowed to marry a prisoner in the UK

v. INTELLECT
vi. DEEN
-many people apostate in prison

8. TOTAL LACK OF AMBITION


-people have no focus in life and the Shaytan deceives them that they will be forever young

9. CRIME


-who will invest if a country has a lot of crime?
-a man can hold a gun at you at your till
-so crime leads to a lot of unemployment

10. NATURAL DISASTERS


-the people lost everything is Haiti
-if your house cost 20million dollars and natural disaster comes,
-you lose everything

“Anas (RA) says, “I went into the presence of Aishah (RA) whilst someone else was seated with her. The person asked, ‘O Mother of the believers, relate to us regarding earthquakes (as to their cause)’ She turned her face away. I (Anas) asked her, ‘Relate to us regarding earthquakes, O Mother of the believers!’ She said, “O Anas, if I were to inform you thereof, you will live a sorrowful life and you will die in this state of grief and you will be raised on the Day of Judgement whilst this fear is in your heart.” I said, “O Mother, relate to me.” She then said, “When a woman removes her clothes in a house other than her husbands (an indication towards adultery), she tears the veil between her and Allah. When she applies perfume to please a male other than her husband, this will be a source of fire and a blemish for her. When the people then begin to commit adultery, consume alcohol and use musical instruments, Allah becomes enraged in the heavens and orders the Earth to shake them. If they repent and refrain, then it is good for them, otherwise Allah will cause it to fall upon them.” I asked, “Is this their punishment?” She said, “It is rather a mercy, means of blessings and admonishment for the believers, and a punishment, display of anger and torment for the unbelievers.” [Al-Mustadrak alaa al-Sahihain (4/561) No. 8575 and Kitab Al-Fitan (2/619) No. 1729]

Allah takes revenge
-and He enveloped the people with Hurricane Katrina
-because Allah said when bad comes it is your own doing

Whatever of good reaches you, is from Allah, but whatever of evil befalls you, is from yourself. And We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) as a Messenger to mankind, and Allah is Sufficient as a Witness. (An-Nisa 4:79)

-so the white man needs to ask himself
-why did Allah destroy my country with hurricane Katrina after I invaded Iraq?

Did you see the Tsunami in Indonesia, Japan?
-and only the masjid remained standing in Indonesia after the tsunami
-and the same material was used to build the houses and masajids




11. RUMOURS OF WARS


-war, poverty, diseases and kufr
-are the axis of evil
-and any country with these axis do not make Hijra to them
-and we need to do a lecture on this

Many of you make Hijra and go to disasters
-you make Hijra to fight jihad fisabilillah
-so do not go to countries with these 4 axis

The one fighting fisabilillah is the one fighting to make the word of Allah highest

A man came to the Prophet and asked, "A man fights for war booty; another fights for fame and a third fights for showing off; which of them fights in Allah's Cause?" The Prophet said, "He who fights that Allah's Word (i.e. Islam) should be superior, fights in Allah's Cause."[Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 65]

When Clinton was in power
-the economy was ticking over
-people were able to have 2 cars and houses
-but when Bush came to power he said I know what to do with the money
-and he invaded Iraq and Afghanistan
-and this led to lost of homes and jobs by Americans

These trillions used to invade Muslim lands could have been used to provide jobs
-you are unable to provide jobs and cover for your people
-so how can you rule the world?
-why not use the money to educate the under privileged in your country
-now you have millions who are without cover and jobs and if sick they will die

Iraq is the land of Abraham
-and if you invade it you become cursed, don’t you know about the Mongols?
-they invaded Iraq and killed Musta'sim and now they are starving
-because they are cursed for invading the land of Abraham

These kuffaar invading Muslim lands do not know Muslims do not give up
-because our dead are in paradise and your dead are in the hellfire
-so can you the Jews and Christians afford to die?

Verily, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to hinder (men) from the Path of Allah, and so will they continue to spend it; but in the end it will become an anguish for them. Then they will be overcomed. And those who disbelieve will be gathered unto Hell. (Al-Anfal 8:36)

So when you see these people occupy Wall Street and other cities
-Allah told you in 8:36 that this will happen
-because they will spend their wealth and it will cause them to be destroyed and bankrupt
-especially if you are fighting Allah
-Allah said anyone who wages war on a servant of mine
-I will fight him

Allah used the word harb (war)

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (RA) who said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "Verily Allah ta’ala has said: ‘Whosoever shows enmity to a wali (friend) of Mine, then I have declared war against him…’ [Related by al-Bukhari]

So all these countries fighting Muslims will be bankrupt
-and you can not blame the Americans for the war, they did not vote for Bush
-but the Illuminatis put him in power

Bush stole vote, claims Clinton:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/1314315/Bush-stole-vote-claims-Clinton.html

The most corrupt countries in the world can not have fair elections
-and how can you have democracy in America when you do not have fair elections?

12. SINS


It was narrated from Thawban that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Nothing increases one's life span except righteousness and nothing repels the Divine decree except supplication, and a man may be deprived of provision by a sin that he commits."' [Sunan Ibn Majah (Arabic/English), Vol 5, pg224-225, Hadith #4022]

-the rasul said sometimes a man is deprived of sustenance due to his sins
-look at Haiti
-the capital of the world for black magic
-and they are one of the poorest countries in the world
-and their magic did not benefit them

13. OPPRESSION

-especially when enlisted on a country by the Illuminatis
-UN, IMF, World Bank
-Tanzania has a very weak currency because they borrowed money from the IMF
-and they asked them to devalue their money

Anytime a crime is gruesome they lock up someone
-because they want to claim they are all seeing all hearing
-and they do not care if the man is spending life in jail

So poverty is imposed by the Illuminatis
-with sanctions and embargos with the UN
-and the rasul (SAW) said this is what the dajjaal is going to do
-and they sanction Muslim countries
-because they are not mad to do it to North Korea
-they threatened to drop missiles on South Korea
-so they will never dream of putting sanctions on North Korea
-they pick on Muslims because they are not united

14. POVERTY IS INHERITED

-Poverty is also inherited the same way wealth is inherited
-and natural disasters also cause poverty and so Allah asked you

Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Tell me! If (all) your water were to be sunk away, who then can supply you with flowing (spring) water?" (Al-Mulk 67:30)

Who can provide you with rain if I hold it back?
-only Allah can provide you with water

THE EVIL EFFECTS OF POVERTY

-some Shaikh’s preach poverty and I do not know why they do that

SHAIKH IN SOUTH AFRICA
-I preached against poverty and the people said I was the first to do that
-and they make the rich Muslims feel guilty

This is hypocrisy
-because you bang on their doors to help you build the masjid
-and after they help you to build the masjid
-you stand on the mimbar and preach against them

1. IT CAUSE YOU TO LOSE YOUR RESPECT

-because no one wants you in their country
-to do business means to become a prostitute
-they feel people aren't qualified to be in their country
-no one wants to marry you as well when you are poor
-the rich is afraid to marry the poor, the family will beg you
-when you marry a girl from a poor family, you have to feed the whole family
-rich people are terrified of marrying poor people, they feel that the person isn’t marriage material
-when you are poor and trying to get a job and you have an address (from the ghetto)
-they will turn you down

2. POVERTY CAUSES BRIBERY

-a police in a third world country is bribed
-the money they are paying him is not enough

3. POVERTY CAUSES CORRUPTION

-You take your case to a judge and pay them off, you can get away with murder (buying justice)

4. POVERTY CAUSES CRIME

-burglary, theft etc
-people say money is the root of all evil, this is a big lie
-but the LACK OF MONEY is the root of all evil
-this means they are desperate and will do desperate things
-the rasul (SAW) said the hand on top giving the Zakah is better than the hand on the bottom receiving the Zakah

Narrated By Ibn 'Umar: I heard Allah's Apostle (SAW) while he was on the pulpit speaking about charity, to abstain from asking others for some financial help and about begging others, saying, "The upper hand is better than the lower hand. The upper hand is that of the giver and the lower (hand) is that of the beggar." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 2, Book 24, Hadith #509]

-see 28:77

But seek, with that (wealth) which Allah has bestowed on you, the home of the Hereafter, and forget not your portion of legal enjoyment in this world, and do good as Allah has been good to you, and seek not mischief in the land. Verily, Allah likes not the Mufsid├╗n (those who commit great crimes and sins, oppressors, tyrants, mischief-makers, corrupts). (Al-Qasas 28:77)

-a kafir uses wealth to snort cocaine, to gamble, and to chase girls
-this ayah tells you how to behave when Allah (SWT) blesses you with wealth
-don’t forget your portion of the dunya (your legal enjoyment)

4. POVERTY BREEDS PROSTITUTION

-these Muslim prostitutes, you cannot make takfir on them as it doesn’t make you a kafir

Narrated By Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "A prostitute was forgiven by Allah, because, passing by a panting dog near a well and seeing that the dog was about to die of thirst, she took off her shoe, and tying it with her head-cover she drew out some water for it. So, Allah forgave her because of that." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 54, Hadith #538]

-the reason why she is a prostitute is because no one established Zakah on them
-see 2:268
-Allah linked poverty and prostitution in the same ayah

Shaitan (Satan) threatens you with poverty and orders you to commit Fahsha (evil deeds, illegal sexual intercourse, sins etc.); whereas Allah promises you Forgiveness from Himself and Bounty, and Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knower. (Al-Baqarah 2:268)

-Fahsha (Prostitution), poverty is the single cause of prostitution
-a car drives up and the women doesn’t know the driver and just jumps in the car
-what if the man is a strangler? a man strangled approximately 7 women

Ipswich serial murders: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ipswich_serial_murders

-the woman still came out after the announcement telling them to stay off the streets
-they ignored them all because of poverty
-why would you put your life on the line? This is because of poverty
-You are not allowed to de-link them

5. POVERTY CAUSES APOSTASY

-Omar (RA) said poverty leads to kufr

“Poverty, in all probability, leads to unbelief (kufr).” [Bayhaqi and Tabarani]

-whenever the crusaders want to go to a Muslim country to spread Christianity
-they will never go to Brunei or Kuwait

6. POVERTY TAKES AWAY YOUR AL WALA WA BARAA

-To love and hate for the sake of Allah (SWT)

Siege of Lal Masjid: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Lal_Masjid

-The Pakistani army went on a rampage arresting foreigners for the sake of the pay cheque

7. POVERTY DESTROYS YOUR SINCERITY

-when you are in a poor village in some places in Africa and a caravan passes through (Muslims)
-they say "Assalamu alaikum" alhamdulillah
-they speak Islamic
-when it is Christians they say "praise the lord"

8. POVERTY MAKES YOU BECOME UNTRUSTWORTHY


-How can you trust a poor man with money?
-if you get ripped off by a person who was poor its nothing but your fault
-when a person is poor they can not be trusted with money
-it’s like holding a bone over their head
-a poor man is very, very desperate
-it is insanity to trust a person who is poor with money
-the best person to put in business is your daughter
-a man without a daughter is a loser
-your daughter (as manager), your daughter is loyal
-a desperate person will always resort to desperate measures

9. POVERTY MAKES YOU BECOME PETTY AND TRIVIAL


The tragedy of Khyra Ishaq's death:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/feb/25/khyra-ishaq-starving-death-background

-she was starved to death
-the British said it was out of their league
-her mother was divorced and she married to a man 5 years younger than her
-social services could not detect she was starving due to her parents pulling her out of school
-you should not go to their home to eat food as well
-they can not afford to be generous
-The mother was 20 stones and her daughter was 3
-they wanted the charge dropped from murder to man slaughter
-a Saudi Salafi is Khawaarij and hate the Muslims
-what the Saudi Salafis did to Khyra Ishaq, the social services said it was out of their league
-When a person is poor they do not even want to feed their guests yet alone their children
-staying with poor people you have to keep your things close to you as they will steal
-if you lend a poor person money, you have to kiss that money goodbye

The Prophet (PBUH) said: “The one who gets married with the intention not to pay dowry to his wife is a fornicator. And the one who borrows money with the intention not to pay back is a thief.” (Ibn Hiban, 2/270)

SHAIKH IN SOUTH AFRICA
-a housemaid went in his room and stole 100 dollars, while he had 500
-they said she was a good thief
-a poor person is very good at making up stories
-when you are living in a country which is very oppressive, they force you to lie
-in order to get welfare

10. POVERTY CAUSES YOU TO BE A LIAR


-a poor person is very good at making up stories
-when you are living in a country which is very oppressive, they force you to lie
-in order to get welfare

11. POVERTY CAUSES ANARCHY

-because a hungry man is an angry man
-in Greece people are burning down buildings

'Athens is in flames': Rioters burn 45 buildings as Greek government backs cuts :
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/46364871/ns/world_news-europe/t/athens-flames-rioters-burn-buildings-greek-government-backs-cuts/

12. POVERTY CAUSES UNEMPLOYMENT

-poor countries do not have any jobs
-that is why people want visas to go to rich countries

13. POVERTY CAUSES CRIMES

-when a man is poor he is going to sell drugs, do burglary etc
-prostitution is illegal in the UK and America, it is called curbed crawling
-if an undercover police catches this action

14. POVERTY CAUSES GHETTOS TO SPRING UP LIKE MUSHROOMS

-Because poor people can not afford homes
-if you are from a ghetto they will think you are a thief

15. POVERTY CAUSES DRUG ABUSE

-this is to get rid of their depression
-alcohol abuse, substance abuse

16. POVERTY CAUSES TEENAGE PREGNANCIES

-they are poor, you are not allowed to take gifts from a man
-no such thing as "free lunch" if this happens means the man wants something in return

17. POVERTY CAUSES MENTAL DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, AND LOW SELF ESTEEM

-the Sahabahs suffered anxieties

Also on the authority of Abu Dharr (RA): Some people from amongst the Companions of the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said to the Prophet (SAW), "O Messenger of Allah, the affluent have made off with the rewards; they pray as we pray, they fast as we fast, and they give [much] in charity by virtue of their wealth." He (SAW) said, "Has not Allah made things for you to give in charity? Truly every tasbeehah [saying: ‘subhan-Allah’] is a charity, and every takbeerah [saying: ‘Allahu akbar’] is a charity, and every tahmeedah [saying: ‘al-hamdu lillah’] is a charity, and every tahleelah [saying: ‘laa ilaha illal Allah’] is a charity. And commanding the good is a charity, and forbidding an evil is a charity, and in the bud’i [sexual act] of each one of you there is a charity." They said, "O Messenger of Allah, when one of us fulfils his carnal desire will he have some reward for that?" He (SAW) said, "Do you not see that if he were to act upon it [his desire] in an unlawful manner then he would be deserving of punishment? Likewise, if he were to act upon it in a lawful manner then he will be deserving of a reward." It was related by Muslim.

-the rasul (SAW) tried to calm their anxieties by telling them a variety of charities

18. POVERTY CAUSES SUICIDE TO BECOME RIPE IN SOCIETY

-see 22:11

And among mankind is he who worships Allah as it were, upon the very edge (i.e. in doubt); if good befalls him, he is content therewith; but if a trial befalls him, he turns back on his face (i.e. reverts back to disbelief after embracing Islam). He loses both this world and the Hereafter. That is the evident loss. (Al-Hajj 22:11)

19. POVERTY CAUSES EXPLOITATION AND MANIPULATION

-if a poor girl is not willing to pay her school fees
-she asks a man to help her, he will want something in return

20. POVERTY CAUSES UNGRATEFULNESS

-their needs are so many and regardless of what you give them, its not enough
-see 93:11

And proclaim the Grace of your Lord (i.e. the Prophethood and all other Graces). (Ad-Duha 93:11)

Narrated By 'Aisha: The Prophet used to seek refuge with Allah (by saying), "O Allah! I seek refuge with You from the affliction of the Fire and from the punishment in the Fire, and seek refuge with You from the affliction of the grave, and I seek refuge with You from the affliction of wealth, and I seek refuge with You from the affliction of poverty, and seek refuge with You from the affliction of Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal" [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 75, Hadith #387]
