Ultimately, what we do is to please Allah and to serve the people. We cannot lose vision of that fact that our time is our people's time. Be truthful to yourself at all times. To do this, from time to time we must be with those people who will help usto see things - the good and the bad in us. We also need to to be conscious of two environments. The inner (our heart) and the outer (the external environment). In fact, the 'ulama would clearly say that in order for a mufti to issue a fatwa he has to be from those who know the people. Likewise, when we serve our communities, we must know our people. And finally, whatever one spent years studying, the issues that need to be communicated to our community, translate it in a language that they understand. This is where we can synthesis what we know and relay the information in simple language for others to benefit from.
This advice was given my an imam who visited us. I thought it was a short yet comprehensive reminder. Let this reminder benefit us all - ameen ya rabb.

Here is the next hadith, JazakiAllah Khair to the dear sister who helped.
InshaAllah we will keep this updated more.
In request for the grammatical analysis of the hadith, I've not got arabic on my current laptop, inshaAllah when I do I will update all the hadith that have it missing.
When Allah gives a person wealth it is a test to see whether or not it is spent in the path of Allah. A common misconception is that giving wealth away will result in great loss, in reality the opposite will happen. Although his money seems to decrease in the dunya he will have a huge reward in the hereafter.
Allah SWT says in Surah Baqara, 'The likeness of those who spend their money for Allah's sake, is as the likeness of a grain (of corn), it grows seven ears, every single ear has a hundred grains, and Allah multiplies (increases the reward) for whom He wills, and Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures needs, All Knower' (2: 261).
Allah SWT also says in Surah Baqara, ‘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 and to Him you shall return’(2: 245).
Remember, a person may have billions of pounds and large mansions but if there is no barakah in his wealth he will never be happy with it!
