Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon all of you, young guys, there's a Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and all of us know this hadith but we may miss understand it partially. The province Allah Allah Allah was salam said something that many of us here, he says a lot that was salam al Kawi you hide on what happened in Allah He many, many life we call in Claire and Hadith, the prophets of Allah there was some he said, the strong believer is better and more beloved in the sight of Allah than the weak believer, and in both of them is good. Let's dissect this a little young men. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has talked

00:00:47--> 00:01:34

the process of talking about strength here. But notice, he said, men and men comes from a man and a man is that which is in the heart shown by the limbs. So it is really ultimately the strong believer meaning that their belief is strong, meaning that they have knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala which ultimately means that they act upon that knowledge, young man, it's important. I know that we want to get into GYN we talked about GYN being growing your motivation, growing your masculinity, growing your mind, that's the gym mass mastermind mentality and method. But when we look at this method, all of this is to help you ultimately be a better Muslim. Be a better men, someone that

00:01:34--> 00:02:11

their hearts is the strongest muscle, because it believes in the one that created it. It knows who he is. It doesn't say that God is like a man or a woman or a child. Nothing is like God, and because of that, I worship him by himself, I turned to him in times of hardship. Even when I'm lifting myself when I lived, I say Allahu Akbar Subhan Allah, because I know Allah is one that has given it to me, he's the one that can make it better. It's not ultimately up to me. That is the movement. And luckily, many times we understand it as a movement of COVID, the one that is physically strong. Yes, it has an understanding as well. But the ultimate understanding is the one that believes in Allah

00:02:11--> 00:02:52

and works their best to strengthen and maintain that belief, keeping away from doubtful matters, and the matters of desire. Many of us may get a body in the gym, and we're thinking about the girls natural, but put it in its proper place. Be a discipline person that says I want to be better in my mental, spiritual and physical, but I'm not going to allow these young girls to distract me. That's the moment of going he's better in the sight of Allah than the movement of life, the weak movement, notice how he's still called him a movement, you make a mistake, it's not a problem. The most important thing is that, you know, that you have to go back to your anchor. That's the ultimate

00:02:52--> 00:03:35

question, who and what is your anchor. And if it is not Allah, we need to do some self evaluation. The gym is a great place to grow our mind, to grow our masculinity, to grow our motivation, but use it as a means to come closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. And that's where the process Salam, he ends it at this portion, he says, And in both of them are good. You're not a bad person, young man. You may be online doing things that you shouldn't be doing in places that you shouldn't be. But as long as you have that anchor with Allah, as long as you have that anchor by starting off by trying your best to pray, by listening to your mother, I know it's gonna be difficult. She may be nagging a lot

00:03:35--> 00:04:11

of times, but that anchor that you have that I trust in Allah, he's the one that will never judge me. He loves me more than anyone else. And I give I use what Allah has given me to the best of my ability. That is the miracle we and maybe the movement of life, the strong, strong believer and the weak believer, but notice, it doesn't only stop at the physical, the physical is a manifestation or a way of showing what is in the heart. Protect your heart, strengthen the heart, just as you strengthen your biceps. May Allah subhanaw taala make us strong believers in this life to where we will be with him in the next synthetic rheumatoid cat
