Lie law in the law.

Watch how to animate Madonna boo boo world.

00:00:25--> 00:00:59

We are grateful to Almighty Allah denote as the world's most gracious, most merciful, with thank Him will press him will seek refuge in Allah from their cost shape on the severity of love from the evil consequences of our deeds. Whatever Allah has guided does know that I'm mislead and whoever has gone astray, there's no one that can bring the person back to the path of guidance. Except Allah has one or the item we give them to Allah for all things at all times, made peace and blessings of Allah be upon the best of all mankind. Mohammed Salam, Salam this household

00:01:00--> 00:01:10

is companions and all believing men and women from now to the Day of Judgment, As Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:01:13--> 00:01:16

Today's a good day, today is a happy day.

00:01:18--> 00:01:46

The goalposts, that title suggests something about soccer, something about football, and we can picture the real goalposts in our minds, we can see the bass players, we see the goalkeepers, you can imagine that we're looking at the football pitch. So let's look at it what do we stand to learn from this today. So what we refer to

00:01:47--> 00:02:37

as just a mere crossbar, or goalpost is actually a paradise for the footballer. For the person that is playing to win or playing to score, the number of times they're able to do that when they see this goalpost, it means a whole lot of things to them. And sometimes it determines whether they win the match, or they lose the match. Sometimes it determines whether they go home with the trophy, or they don't go home with the trophy. In many instances, it is just as it is people run around in a sort of communal mayhem set by somebody in order to ensure that they put this ball inside the goalposts. And this is the matter that so they count the number of time they actually score. And the

00:02:37--> 00:03:22

scoring as it is, it was explained by some sources that people whenever the ball gets into the net, they will, you know, make a mark on the on the goalpost. So they score a mark on it. So that's why they say this choice, it's a score, if the goal and the score harmony, they count the number of times they score or make the mark on the on the goalpost. So that's why they say it is scoring scoring as in action something or marking something or scratching one if you have scored one if when you score the goalpost one. And of course, there are many other ways of being that now more modern methods of counting this, including using technology

00:03:23--> 00:03:35

to determine and ascertain whether the ball actually entered or hit the bar or cross the line that we can refer to as a goal being scored. This is very beautiful.

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

Then we have the metaphors that go along.

00:03:41--> 00:03:45

Say the goalpost has shifted. It's a metaphor that's derived from

00:03:47--> 00:04:21

this kind of sport is really this football or the soccer we are talking about. I might be using these interchangeably football or soccer. And so when they say they have shifted somebody's goal, it means the person has been the process have been changed. It means the what is supposed to be the result has been altered. It means they say perceived unfairness in changing the goal that somebody is trying to achieve after there is an agreement. That is going to be the goal. It means expectations have been changed, it means

00:04:22--> 00:04:29

something has been altered from what is supposed to be it means the rules of the game must have been changed.

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

It means the results to have been changed. It means the meaning of the game you are playing has already changed if you say somebody has changed the goalposts so we'll say the goalposts has been changed. We also use your marriage, for instance, where couples change each other's expectations. You think you have become crazy because the person is a narcissist AllAfrica now that is an example of the metaphor

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

of changing the goalposts as we do it,

00:05:03--> 00:06:02

then let's think about the world game as a whole, the game itself as a whole. The football match shows temporality of time, meaning that the soccer helps to explain the peculiar way our perception and affective experience of time are neither linear nor constant lived time is not the same thing as clock time, you understand what I mean? It means clock time is your sequence of this is now or that was then or this is going to be later is to kind of continue on when you look at the clock time, but the leaves time is what did you do within that time? What did you achieve within that period, that space that gap that opportunity that moment? What did you do? What did you achieve? So, time is

00:06:02--> 00:06:15

something that is not linear to say we are taking it from here to there, it is not governed by the clock, the real concept of time is shaped by a lot of things, the environment is one of them.

00:06:16--> 00:06:25

The world that we are inhabiting at that particular time is another thing that will let you know, that let you have the experience of time.

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

In soccer, for example, it is very compelling and obvious that you see that there is 90 minutes of game, right for the five minutes first half for the five minutes. Second half. So there's the objective measure of temporality that you are not going to play this game forever. It is just for 90 minutes. So every game lasts as long as the last game, every game lasts as long as the game last, but I experienced of the time is very different. Let me give you an example of what one ought to give us an Estonian tree example. There are trees watching the football match.

00:07:08--> 00:07:30

One train is on this side, supporting one football club. The other train is supporting another football club. As the game was going on, it was one goes one goes to 01 name. Now, at the last two minutes of the giveaway, maybe there was injury time. Let's add

00:07:32--> 00:07:39

that into time is very fast to one train. And it's very smooth to do that train.

00:07:41--> 00:07:45

One thing that is winning I see it as very slow.

00:07:46--> 00:08:18

The other team that is losing sees it as very fast. In order we don't judge time the same way. And that's why we say the clock time is not the same thing as leaving time. You may be at home watching a movie you will not know when two hours have passed. But someone who is in the hospital struggling with one form of pain or the other knows that two hours is a long time especially if they say sorry the doctor that will treat you will be here in two hours time

00:08:21--> 00:08:22

is simple hours.

00:08:23--> 00:08:35

But you can see the feelings are different. Justin and playing and relaxing. Two hours for them is not the same thing as two hours for a woman who is in labor.

00:08:37--> 00:08:51

Say mme you have to hold on the ambulance that will convey to the hospitals will be here in two hours time. And this woman is in labor, the water has booked the nurse is not around the doctor is yet to be seen.

00:08:52--> 00:09:38

Now, you see the difference in time now. So that is what one of the things you learn from soccer. You see that time is temporary. And what you feel about time is different at every point in time. What do you achieve within that 90 minutes of the football match? That time can suddenly compress and that time can even be expanded. If it is the same thing. The question is what is happening at any one point or the other. Within that 90 minutes, something is always happening. People are not sleeping. People are not resting. The players are not lying down. They are all standard. You will the goalkeeper is standing by the goal not that will be there chatting with his girlfriends.

00:09:40--> 00:09:53

It will be there with his eyes even when the players are the other side of the pool. Something's happening but we're not necessarily scoring goal every time what something is going on. And that's the joy. That's the joy of the gaming

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

is watching the joy that can be fantastic games

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

Sometimes when nobody scores, but for those who understand and who enjoy watching football, they enjoy every moment of it because something's actually happening. At every point in time, one opponent may be slowing down for the time will pass and the runner will be there one goal to zero. The other party may be running helter skelter. It may be some tactics that are being in place. It may be that the other side is trying to weigh down the opening, know how you play on a social you get your opponent exhausted, you play very wide, you are here and you will slow down on till when somebody is going to take the ball from you, then you kick it very far away to meet the other

00:10:41--> 00:11:09

players the other side, another person from Lebanon will have to run to Graham mark that one, they now kick to another long distance, you keep making them to run up and down just to weigh them down. Those who understand soccer, the new tactic is or something is going on. So there's also something about the manipulation in the football match or the frustration that you put on your opponent with time.

00:11:10--> 00:11:11

You can do all of this.

00:11:12--> 00:11:26

Within that 90 minutes, you have the manipulation. Within that 90 minutes, you have the frustration with it and it means you have the exhaustion. It depends on what you are paying and how you are going about it. In other words,

00:11:28--> 00:12:17

as people continue to sleep, it eventually results into gold. You now see the different types of gold from those are very beautiful. You know, we'll say they say that's a very excellent gold, very beautiful do some goals. Tattoo yet free kicks, some gold, it's penalty or you see how it is done. Some goals it is from Kentucky, the person is able to swerve the ball inside. And then you see passes you see defenses you see all of these things, you see goals and some of the goals are a lot of Defense's, most of the goals are just easy and simple tuck ins, the other players have done the walk the excellent person from the goalkeeper at the other size, showing it to the leg of one of

00:12:17--> 00:12:34

them. Or if he kicks it, if he kicks it out the person that headed and you know, chested and control the ball. They have done a lot of work before the person who scored the goal, eventually get the pass and he just chips in. And then it's a goal.

00:12:35--> 00:12:54

A lot of work has been done. And I want to learn that also from the goalposts discussion we are having the student will pass the exam, or study sufficiently for long hours. exempted 70 Don't one out, you have just thrown away all of the students who are given equal time to read the exam.

00:12:55--> 00:13:12

Those who had passed those who had worked hard, who had read hard, who had done all their preparation, who had done all the trainings, even before the day on the match, they have played match, they're lost, they're played against themselves, they have done all of these things they have suffered and trained

00:13:14--> 00:13:28

is student will not just pass an exam within one hour. It is something that don't read from time. You see the father that has saved one for many months. You just see an alert one day, you just pay the school fees of his children.

00:13:29--> 00:13:40

The moment or pay school fees of the children may not be more than one minute. Well, this man had walked for four months, save your money and save you money and save money.

00:13:41--> 00:14:12

In other words, if you compare to the game of football or soccer, you will see that the person will eventually scored the goal is not the person who did all the work. Some other persons have done a lot of that, even before the match. They have done a lot of damage during the match, and then they gave him the ball. That's how he was able to score. A mother has spent her whole life in cheer or bringing but you see her dancing or the daughter's wedding day. She dances with so much joy as if she's crazy.

00:14:13--> 00:14:39

That's a combination of many years of reasonably girl from baby to adolescent, from training, to fighting will have to discipline her to deny how some things to training and teaching and coaching her on certain things that she's expected to do. So the wedding day will you see her he got very big, bigger than other people.

00:14:40--> 00:15:00

And you'll see her smiling more than others with his personally because she has worked for the easy tap of the responsible man showing up to marry her daughter is because she has really worked hard to treat her daughter well to have been attracted to others and the people are so attracted to have good character

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

And good demeanor.

00:15:02--> 00:15:04

These are the things is also about,

00:15:06--> 00:15:07

about preparation.

00:15:08--> 00:15:14

For many things that we do in life, you have been working hard with work early

00:15:15--> 00:15:42

and closing late until one day where your promotion letter comes, or when there's an award to be given to the best house. And people see you walk outside and being recognized. And they think that was a woman. Yes, it was a woman. But before you scored that goal is that a lot of work? A lot of preparation, a lot of stocks. This is Walton, I don't want to forget about the play of soccer, for football,

00:15:43--> 00:15:54

football. So for about space, and the interpretation of space, you have a football pitch to play on in, not outside the lines.

00:15:55--> 00:16:38

Everywhere, everybody has got to maintain their field of play. The football pitch is dead, just like in life was to have our own football pitch where to play, you call up within that place within that space. And you have to get to make the best use of whatever number you are playing. If you are number one, let's assume we are good people, you know your territory, you know where you're supposed to stay, you know where you're supposed to manage, you know how you're supposed to excel within that space that you are nice if you are number 10. Or number nine, all one attacker a defender, or number four, whichever one you are, you got to understand you only have the football pitch to play. No

00:16:38--> 00:16:49

matter your number. Even your number zero, you don't play outside the lines. You play within what you have. A fundamental part of what it means to be invoked in soccer

00:16:51--> 00:16:57

is an experience. And this experience is in watching and being watched.

00:16:58--> 00:17:13

So watching others and being watched, this is how we play the game of life. The Spectator part is not auxiliary is not ordinary. It's a fundamental part of the experience for both the players and the fans or the spectators.

00:17:14--> 00:17:36

People talk about the spectator sometimes as a player, because, you know, apart from 11 that are playing in one part of the of the teams. The Swift player will be descriptive. Let me unpack what I'm saying for you to understand very well. What I mean is in the game of life, you are clean.

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

People are watching you.

00:17:40--> 00:17:41

You're also watching all that.

00:17:44--> 00:17:46

thing you are doing here as a game player,

00:17:48--> 00:17:58

as we're looking at others who are looking at you how you play and how they play, one is going to influence the other. So when I talk about the 12

00:17:59--> 00:18:10

player, I'm referring to spectator and the fans, the fans can fundamentally affect what happens in a game. And this is why there's what we call home advantage,

00:18:11--> 00:18:17

which is the most mysterious thing. Because why will it matter? It will matter because

00:18:18--> 00:18:24

the presence of the fans will have effects on the game.

00:18:26--> 00:18:28

If the fans are cheering you up,

00:18:30--> 00:18:58

you are likely going to do well. If the fans are booing you down, is likely going to affect how you play. You will be playing well in your own opinion. Both if you surround yourself with play with fans that you don't appreciate. You're rolling up and down. You surround yourself in life with fans that keep going down. So instead of cheering you have scoring life goals with a very, very difficult

00:18:59--> 00:19:02

if not sometimes almost impossible.

00:19:03--> 00:19:08

Bring it to marriages. Are you a hero to your spouse?

00:19:09--> 00:19:52

Are you a hero to your wife? As the man the road is up and down? Is your wife cheering you up? Or she's booing you down. As a woman does your husband cheer you on? Is your husband your cheerleader? So to speak, the same appreciate what you're doing. Sometimes no matter how much we look at it, if you have the funds, if you have the spectators, if you have the audience that do not cheer you up. If you have friends that do not cheer you up, if you have neighbors that don't cheer you up. If you have you know business associates that don't appreciate what you do.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

Scoring life goals will be very difficult. And sometimes when we talk about whom advanced

00:20:00--> 00:20:15

You're trying to surround yourself with the people that make you feel at home, when you are playing the games of life. home advantage is such that you will remember many of these countries that hosts football matches the World Cup, always

00:20:16--> 00:20:21

the first place where the water was posted on day one, and you're gonna

00:20:23--> 00:20:23


00:20:25--> 00:20:29

If you're in case, you don't know for a home advantage,

00:20:31--> 00:21:11

in splitting your life matches can be very difficult. In other words, cultivate the kind of home that is going to cheer you up, cultivate the kind of family that is going to support your struggles, and your horses, cultivate the kind of environment that's going to support your audience up and down your posts one of your goals in life, let there be people that even when you miss the goal, they'll see cheer you up and encourage you to do it all over again, football matches can be very repetitive, did the same thing, the same kick the same people. But there are certain differences in the way people pleasing.

00:21:12--> 00:21:27

If you throw the ball in, or you kick it in, or you head it in, or you do what you call somersault, and you kick it in or you do some hattricks, whichever one you do, so long as it results in a goal. It's supposed to be okay for you.

00:21:28--> 00:21:45

Whichever direction the ball comes through, it is still a goal. There should be people that will see that you keep over the bar, yet, they will encourage you to try it again. Because that over the bar may be the one that will eventually come in, and the goalkeeper will not be able to catch it.

00:21:46--> 00:21:56

In other words, you need people that are willing to cheer you up, not to bring you down. Let me mention another thing we learn from the goalposts for the football match.

00:21:58--> 00:22:19

football matches is not just a play. Soccer is not just a play, there's something about the phenomenon of play, what we do when we please, the way in which when we are aware of something being played, then we can give ourselves to it as much as we can. In other words, there's something mysterious about playing.

00:22:21--> 00:22:27

Games can be very mysterious. It may look like play. But there are some aspects of seriousness.

00:22:29--> 00:22:50

When they say there's going to be two bomber they said they're going to play this sounds like play right? What is the profession of some people? It sounds like play because they call it play. But it's requested in seriousness, certain knowledge and know how certain depth of training and technicalities of the coaches and you know, they do refer to as technical people.

00:22:52--> 00:22:53

technical work because

00:22:55--> 00:23:16

apart from the coach that is brought in after them to kick ball Koresh that still strategists? Yes, we'll plan whether it is 442234. Anyhow, they term it. There are those who do that. It may look like ordinary play. And that is why lag itself is not just a play.

00:23:18--> 00:23:19

It's a serious matter.

00:23:20--> 00:23:24

In marriage, is bedroom business just deeply

00:23:25--> 00:23:53

urban and why be playwrights don't they play when they lock the bedroom, and they are both inside the play. But those bedroom performance not affect the marriage as a whole? In a way? It's it looks like Playboy does not require serious, healthy engagements. Is it not sacred? Is it not private? Is it not important? Is it not serious? Even though we'll save couples leave in their bedroom?

00:23:54--> 00:24:15

It is displaying actually sometimes that reflect the seriousness of that marriage. It is this play in the bedroom. Sometimes that determines whether the marriage is successful or not. Sometimes because we don't want to over generalize. What I'm trying to say is it's a play.

00:24:16--> 00:25:00

It's a play was full of live games, live issues often may look like games may look like please, but there are some seriousness. There has to be, you know some solutions that have to be attached to the whole cube of life. The way people will play soccer better is when they are immersed in the flow without even thinking about it. When you see the footballer or the player seem to have merged with the board itself. In fact between him and the football, they say control and they say preemptive eveness between them. The ball is coming to him he knows where the ball will land. He knows how the ball is rolling. He knows how to control

00:25:00--> 00:25:33

It knows whether to test it and need it in order to kick it or ahead, it is making direct interaction, it can have them conversation between him and the ball that is coming. There's a kind of calculation as is having the ball between his legs as his running with the ball, as he is trying to dodge the openness to try to dribble the opponent. And it's also trying to calculate where is still made easy for him to pass the ball, this goes post is and the attention of the goalkeeper

00:25:34--> 00:25:35

sees of matter.

00:25:37--> 00:26:08

It is like a clip. For that the point the flu comes in. And then you will see how these players how they learn, how they calculate, how they miss sometimes, how these past sometimes, and how those days sometimes when they have to stay, how they let go, sometimes he wants to call body or scene that if he tried to call by himself, there may be an attacker or there may be an obstacle. So he can let go, you will pass to another person that can be better job, you see a whole lot of things is not just playing

00:26:09--> 00:26:21

the same thing with the matters of life. The same thing with the seams of life, you may let it flow, you may take it easy, but be very calculative about it.

00:26:22--> 00:27:00

And sometimes you may let go is not only you that can score the goal, low for instance, some other people may be better to achieve certain things that you so if you're in the workplace, you work with the teams, you may not be wooed those work that is most important, but is what is achieved at the end of it all, there may be much more important in marriages to them, maybe Mr. Hogben, or they maybe madam wife, but in playing certain key roles in the family to score the real goal. To achieve the best of everything. Sometimes, even when it comes to discipline the children.

00:27:01--> 00:27:05

Sometimes, Mr. Hawkman, we just leave the wife to handle it.

00:27:06--> 00:27:21

From the model perspective, she may know how better to call the child and to talk to the car. Sometimes we let the father handle it from the baba from the father's perspective, it may need to be stern may need to be filmed.

00:27:23--> 00:27:54

They need to be cool. It may need to be hard, it may need to do any of these things. Sometimes it might need to smack your child. Sometimes they might need to discipline that child. Sometimes your husband may need to deny the child something if you must achieve the goal. It is not really to say it must be done in this particular way. But the reality is that you have to understand exactly what we're looking for, and what kind of goal you want to achieve in child upbringing. And that's just an example.

00:27:56--> 00:28:50

Then another thing you must take notice of is what is your focus? What is your focus in this match that you are playing? What is your focus in the game that you are playing? What do I mean by this, you need to develop the ability not to focus on only the goals, but also on the process. And when I say this, there are two schools of thought about this. There are those who see football as aggression in the service of beauty. You know, they have the idea of of a romantic, SF theorization of football. That is they see football as very beautiful. The way you wear the Jaysus. If you look at the story of Genesis, that will be the way they started from wearing those ordinary things to

00:28:50--> 00:28:55

things that are colorful to Jessie's that are designed the way the Jaysus

00:28:57--> 00:29:25

branded. Sometimes you'll see the names of some companies that are sponsoring some part of the game. Sometimes you see the names of the footballers themselves, no written somewhere near their number. All of those Brenton and everything. The call for appearances, the ceremonial ways that we are approaching scoring of goals. The way a footballer will score and he will somersaults to entertain

00:29:27--> 00:29:59

the spectators and to celebrate the victory of scoring a goal. All of these are meant to be beautiful. Some people look at football matches that let it be beautiful. Let it be nice, beautiful passes. Excellent dribbling and very nice Korea. Simple passes and very nice shots. All of these things I suppose is beautiful. The way the goalkeeper will dive, you know to catch the ball. This is supposed to reflect

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

Oh, we're supposed to be entertained.

00:30:03--> 00:30:22

This house on the lookout for more, much more some other school of thought said it is not like that. Football is supposed to be dated. Sometimes it has got to be compromising. Sometimes you have got to focus on winning, you got to focus on on scoring the goals or go home, score goals or go home.

00:30:24--> 00:30:49

For some people, it's all about how many scores. It's not, I don't care how many legs were broken. They don't care how many people were injured. They don't care how many people were carried out on stretchers because they were injured during the football match. They don't care how many yellow cards they get. All they want is that they Moscow, and they was when animals get to go.

00:30:51--> 00:31:04

It appears that these two opinions are two sides of the coin in some ways. But the thing is your line, how do you approach

00:31:07--> 00:31:07

your life.

00:31:08--> 00:31:25

Some people see it as something that is living up to life. Play by the rules. Don't commit crimes. If you are working in some way, just do your best if you are promoted. If you are not promoted, at least you derive the pleasure in service.

00:31:27--> 00:31:28

That is a do or die thing.

00:31:29--> 00:31:52

In a place of work, they don't mind to flop the downfall of the economy. They don't mind to work against evil, the progress of the company, so long as they're going to be pressed. They don't mind to sell their companies, they don't mind to sabotage the efforts of their colleagues. They don't mind to do things that is going to spoil the whole process

00:31:53--> 00:32:29

just for them to score goals. This approach to life. Some people bring the same thing, even into the marriages they have for some married is supposed to be a beautiful experience, where the husband and wife love one another, where they do things together, where they watch or look after one another where they watch the path of one another where they are not desperate in scoring goals. They're not desperate in winning arguments. They're not desperate for being right every time when kung fu matters of squabbles and quarrels

00:32:30--> 00:32:38

where they got one another just to score a point where they don't lie, cheat or deceive one another, just to be seen as a nice person.

00:32:40--> 00:32:53

The approach to football, you the same approach to families and Marriage Matters. For some people, for some people, it is a battleground to be married,

00:32:54--> 00:33:15

I will see how often our wives scheming against one another to materialize, it gives one another, some love. calling attention to the flaws of one another, emphasizing the mistakes of one another, amplifying the imperfection of one another. Why do people do this? Well, we could look at life this way.

00:33:18--> 00:33:19


00:33:20--> 00:33:21

what I say about this,

00:33:22--> 00:33:35

in as much as two barmac is beautiful. There's also the technical things, there's also the know how part of it, there's also the struggle part of it. When a body's passed, you have to run and make a phone

00:33:37--> 00:33:42

call, just make a phone, that's what's going to make your coach not to remove you from the next match.

00:33:43--> 00:33:54

You know that the ball is going off and then you still run after it. That's what people want to see want to see make the effort. So, the effort is important and the beauty is also important but not at all costs.

00:33:55--> 00:34:13

That is why in real life football situation, when a particular player is being cruel, a particular player is injuring others, the referee will give the yellow card that leads to one and after a while they will give what they give the red card because you are not fit to begin.

00:34:14--> 00:34:19

You are not playing this game by the rules. Not that football has good chips.

00:34:20--> 00:34:30

But what they do is that there are people watching and there are rules to be for them to abide by. Let me mention another thing for them with our athletes.

00:34:31--> 00:34:59

If for the analysis of Obama's shoes, just like in real life situations, there are numerous skills that you will have prevalence, what you do, there should be a combination of your physical ability, the technical, the perceptive, the cognitive, and the decision making skills, decision making skills with performance and goal orientation. You have to put all of those things together.

00:35:00--> 00:35:29

When you play the real football matches begins, you simply want to play the game of life, you also need to have technical know how we need to have the wisdom, we need to understand what's going on. Here to analyze your opponents, you need to understand that some people are actually playing against you, you need to be smart, you need to be wise, you need to be cautious, you need to be careful. And you need to be dedicated, you need to be focused, you need to understand the people you are playing with, as you open it are the sharks.

00:35:31--> 00:35:48

And you also need to understand the people who are playing with within your own team, or didn't lose the bones that will fulfill your efforts. Are there people amongst them that are trying to sabotage your efforts in the game of life, you may all be in the same team. But today isn't all of them that really want you to succeed.

00:35:49--> 00:35:59

You may be in the same team and are the ones that are throwing things on your path so that you can fall, you may be the same team, but they will not pass the ball to you so that you can score.

00:36:01--> 00:36:27

Maybe the same team they know you have positioning to achieve greatness for the team for what they don't support you. What you don't like what you don't want to what is the thing you are struggling with what will be think you are too popular. What if they think you are the only one that everybody is talking about? What is the thing you are actually Yekini you are the only one that is shown all advance as the best player, what are the remaining 10 of us?

00:36:29--> 00:36:34

What if you are like us if you did not have the level or the children.

00:36:36--> 00:36:40

One of them be like you, the women attend me This is you.

00:36:41--> 00:36:49

Disabled, we have to bought him that same we have people around us will be the same team. But not all of them will be

00:36:50--> 00:36:52

Joseph that is useful.

00:36:53--> 00:37:00

He is also the same from the same father as the other children. But that he didn't make them not to throw him into the well.

00:37:03--> 00:37:28

They forgot him already. Thank you 11 against one Subhanallah How you going to explain it 11 People working against one. And we are amongst that level there has been German booty Amin was also a supporter of Yusuf. But you see when you see was to be thrown to the well, you couldn't do anything. So if you have your support or gonna have them or how many people actually your support.

00:37:29--> 00:37:38

I think this football thing is very interesting about our lives. Can I think we look at it very well, you're going to see a whole lot of things that we pay out for to understand.

00:37:39--> 00:38:03

Also, when you are trying to score the goals of life, you should understand your body movements, you should understand your strong point and your weak points, you should understand very well if your left leg is better developed than your right leg. In kicking balls, you should understand what angle you can actually kick the ball and you can score you should understand whether you're a leftist or rightist. When it comes to penalty shootout, you have to understand whether

00:38:04--> 00:38:35

which of your legs is actually developed more for long kicking. And which of them do you use for dribbling, you must understand the movement of your body, you must understand if a fast runner or you must understand you I slow dribble, I maintain your lane, they your lane, like they say, Stay where you are, and achieve the best of what you can. Because we're a goalkeeper doesn't mean that when you now see the striker not being well, you live your goal post, you say you want to go and play

00:38:37--> 00:38:38

the space of striker.

00:38:39--> 00:38:50

That's going to be a disaster for the team. Please tell me, what do you say of a goalkeeper who thinks the other players are scoring. And he also wants to score.

00:38:51--> 00:39:01

So he leaves his goalposts and he goes to the 80 of the other team. And it was standing there for a day pass the ball to him. What's going to happen to that team

00:39:03--> 00:39:27

is not all of us that need to score our sin physically, or our credit score in the way we see it. Some other people may have to do the job for us. In other words, understand how it is going to understand the game of your life. Understand the match of your life, know when to strike, or know when to defend. And let me make sure this point for you.

00:39:28--> 00:39:39

So that you can have your life back. While working on your goal posts. You need to understand very well, that a 90 minute drama is what you have.

00:39:40--> 00:39:59

Each story is football match is a story yet on tools. One match may not be exactly the same as the next the the players may be the same players. The teams may be the same, but they're not all going to be the same outcome when they begin to pay this much

00:40:00--> 00:40:17

Each story is yet on tool, we can predict we can foretell, but nobody can tell what will happen at the end of the match. It so happens sometimes that some season player will even confess to you that there seem to be a lock factor in football matches.

00:40:18--> 00:40:26

They seem to really look faster. Sometimes they wonder how did we even managed to win this match, you get to see a lot of that when there's penalty shootout.

00:40:27--> 00:41:06

And then you see what we call this one sudden deaths comes up. And then we get to see who's going to win at the end of the day, at a point in the football matches. Some of them realize that no matter how well you have trained, there is a locking factor in some of these games, understand very well that the game of life, you can always predict, you can always be sure, you can always be sure that you're going to score, you can only be sure that you're going to win, we are all at different times in a particular 90 minutes duration of our live existence, let us say that we are only in this world for 90 minutes each, all of us

00:41:07--> 00:41:12

just the same. We also all have to inform our CD, all of

00:41:13--> 00:41:27

what we are going to achieve within that 24 hours is all dependent on juice, sometimes, or some other factors that you can't really fathom. Let us say we only have 30 minutes to play on

00:41:28--> 00:42:10

NetSim in duration for some people is very fast, 90 minute duration was on who is very slow. It depends on what you are doing. And what we're engaged in. It depends on your environment, and the kind of things you are set out to do. It also depends on the number of girls who are actually looking for to when necessary points for your next match, the tension, the twists and turns of the match, the things that we watch when we're playing. And the things that we see unfold as a match is going on the heroes of the matches of our lives, the villains of the matches of our lives, the tears and the laughter so every football match the trials or the tragedies of all matches, they are all

00:42:10--> 00:42:58

the things that bring us together as human beings. We all have these games to play in life. And we are both players and spectators at the same time. Like we said earlier on, you are a player, people are watching you do see when you are watching orders, we have seen and we are seeing all sorts of goals, all sorts of games, all sorts of goals, the deafness and the torches of the balance and the boldness of the player, the balance and the control of the ball, the telepathic vision, the special wanderer goal, the one that caught the goalkeeper by surprise, there's something out of nothing. The mesmerizing tricks, the practice that we do, the hearts tricks that we do, in order to score goals

00:42:58--> 00:43:11

in life, they are all part of the thing you have to bear in mind. If you are playing the football matches of your life, if you must call a goon, we also understand that the game is truly beautiful. If we played increasingly,

00:43:12--> 00:44:00

The Game of Life is beautiful. If you played with the craft, with the technique, the guy does strategy. And whatever the result is whether you win, or you lose, as is to have enjoyed the beauty of playing the game by the rules. Your conscience is clear. You didn't break anybody's legs. You didn't break anybody's heads, you didn't put a stop to another person's career. Because we are struggling to stroke. Your conscience is clean, because you didn't enjoy any player that is going to be rendered incapable or incapacitated for the rest of his life. You struggled to win, you struggled to score, but not at the expense of the life of others. Other players like you, especially those who

00:44:00--> 00:44:19

are in the opposition, those who are playing against, understand very well and recognize that there are so many hands that are unseen in the games of life that we play, just like we have in football, many people have contributed to our opportunity to play the game of life. After all, some people give back to you.

00:44:20--> 00:44:28

Some people give back to you. If your parents didn't give back to you, you will never have had the opportunity to be the game of life

00:44:29--> 00:44:59

is because you are here. That's why you are playing what's in the living pick you what if you were not born? What if you were not brought up by this? You have to appreciate those people that want to get it to your opportunities to play the games of life. You have to appreciate the boot scrapers. The people who kept the booth and they kept washing it. The people who push the mowers and those who made the fields to be very level and green. The people who push the mowers and the water sprinklers the grass

00:45:00--> 00:45:39

growers, they want to keep the peaches clean, they want to pay the West and green whooping the whites of your marks on the green of the grass. Those who serve food to the players, those who serve in the contains all of those who work on sin, those foods that you don't know that they've contributed, you must look for them and appreciate them. If some people didn't take care of your football speech before you came, I wonder where you're going to clean water, the grasses that you see are actually stones. I don't know if you're going to pray that. What if some people didn't provide the books that you want to protect your feet in play the games of life, what you've

00:45:39--> 00:46:09

submitted and show that there were no thorns inside those booths with you to run about and you are shining everywhere. You have to appreciate the holy traffic directors, those who pick deleted, the rubbish collectors, or the stewards, all of those who cooked for you, or you ate all of the information shares, those who laid the tables, those who connected the cables, those who put the things in place for you, those who have the worst, or have those that have those I have you.

00:46:11--> 00:46:51

You must remember them, we must appreciate them. There are those who show you the seats, there are those who made your day to be complete, there are those who actually trained and educated us in playing the games of life. Some of you showed you the way. Some people taught you the rules. Some people showed you the game. Some people ensure that your welfare is taken care of those who contributed your training, as we're growing, those who ensure that you are operating those who ensure that you are helping those who ensure that you don't have often those who fail you at the right time, before you grow to become who you have become those who took you to the hospital to do

00:46:51--> 00:47:28

that you called when you are in trouble when you are in crisis, those who are always there to support you, in one form or the other, from primary education to secondary, from secondary to tertiary, from tertiary to those who showed where you could get a job, from all of that to do to show you, the sweetheart and the darling, you're eventually married as a husband or your wife. All of these people are part of those who contributed to this game. So our lives, you must appreciate them. Just like in normal football, the ones who I don't the flags that we'll see flying, those who unfold in NetBeans. Those who paint the goalposts, white.

00:47:29--> 00:48:10

Those who attended to you don't forget to remember them. Appreciate those who cheer you on year after year. When you pass exam when you sat for exam when you wrote your continuous assessments, the teachers who told you Well don't be teachers who patted on the back and say, yes, your essay was right. The teachers who look at you and say, Yes, you did well, but you need to do more. All of these are part of those who cheered you up. And they made it to become who you are today. The sacrifices that they all meet, the commitments that they all took. Those who shout out from the stance, those who cheer you off those who applauded you, those who clap their hands, every woman,

00:48:10--> 00:48:20

every man, every grandfather, every grandmother, every every neighbor, every sibling, every uncle Abu Bakr,

00:48:21--> 00:48:22

every antimalaria,

00:48:23--> 00:48:59

every nephew, every nieces, every cousin and brothers and sisters, all the clan, all of the drama in your mosque, all of the people that surround you, if these people were not there, your life, you could never have scored any goal of life. If for any reason, or by God's will, you're able to score some goals in life. Never forget all of these unseen hands that were around to cheer you up, including those who gave you troubles and ruined the teachers that came to you when you were in school. Yes, including your boss, that setting you with circulator,

00:49:00--> 00:49:42

including those who are going to instruct you and made you leave the place to go look for something better with your life. These are part of the unseen hands. Don't think anything went by accident. All of them need to be respected, or they need to be appreciated, or those respected names who did want us in our lives. As we grew up the changing games for us, those memories that we can relive again and again, those foundations of our past life they build to lead and build to last. All of these things that we're enjoying today. We must immortalize them, we must remember them, those who toiled and give their old those who fought every single battle for those who answered every call

00:49:42--> 00:49:59

those who always understood even when we don't understand ourselves, those who are ready to listen, even when you really have nothing to say. Those who are ready to offer guidance when they saw you going astray. Those who played with us those who help us those who may help us

00:50:00--> 00:50:28

Miguel's grades in life, we never could have played in loon by ourselves on the pitch of life. If this were not present this for us, those are the people who got our dreams to be lived into reality. They're the ones who trained us. They're the ones who managed us. They're the ones who pick the teams that we played with. They're the ones who decide those who should be your friend who rules to be your friend, our parents and our uncles, they were very mean towards us,

00:50:30--> 00:51:14

that ensure that we don't play with the wrong teams, they ensure that we don't play bad friends, to ensure that bad influences don't take us away from our from our goals in life. All of these things are the things we should all be grateful. Eventually, whether we score goals or not, to the friends that we love, the friends that we are playing with the phrase that we have played with. And we should all be grateful, whether you will score goals or not. For whatever little achievement we have been able to make, where we keep running around to the pitch, we're running around for a purpose, we may not be the ones that scored the goals. But we are happy and lucky to be part of the team. be

00:51:14--> 00:52:01

contented with being part of that team, the team of people who are progressive, the team of those who gain chances to order so that they can also shine. The team of those who recognize the effort of everyone, even when their legs didn't touch the bone for more than one or two seconds throughout the 45 minutes or 90 minutes of the game. We must appreciate those friends who stood by us in playing the games of life so that this goalpost that we have, they maintain it for us, they allowed it to be there for us and always give us the opportunity to score in our own unique weeds. And above all, let us be grateful that we have the privilege of playing together on Earth. We all came here for a

00:52:01--> 00:52:18

purpose. And we are all here for a specific time. Whether you scored the goals or not be grateful for the gift of life and be grateful for the opportunity that you're also here to play your own parks to play your own role to play your own number

00:52:19--> 00:52:25

in the football match of life, may Allah make it easy for us. I will stop here insha Allah clinical you.

00:52:28--> 00:52:28


00:52:30--> 00:52:30


00:52:32--> 00:52:32

look at

00:52:37--> 00:52:43

the dagger hole gentiana classic, beautiful out of the celestial glass from the

00:52:46--> 00:52:54

ship when that ball broke to Troy Dini, there was no panic. He was so relaxed. He wasn't worried about the state of play the stage of the game he just causes
