One of the things that we gain from the teachings of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his teaching a lot of times, we don't think about because don't really reflect and go deeper into the Sunnah. And this is when you ask Allah agenda, which level of the agenda are you supposed to ask for? He told us, Ali Salatu was Salam. It has ELTE Allah agenda has come up for agenda. First l l fear, docile, Alleman agenda. So alsco law for the Theodosia Allah the highest level of the agenda. One of the things that we gained from this hadith and we reflect on it, it's not just which level of gender to ask for. But it's teaching you as a Muslim, and directly in all
aspects of your life, that when you aim for something, you aim for the top, you always aim for excellence, and Muslim you shouldn't want to be in anything you do in life. You don't want to be mediocre. You don't want to be average, you want to be normal, you want to excel, and another Hadith our beloved Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salam, he taught us in Allah how you were able either amela or huddlecam, Amylin and youth Pentaho that Allah loves, when any of you does an action that he perfects it. This is what Islam wants from us is to, to excel and to strive for excellence, and every single thing that we do, and we reflect on this hadith when he said ally salatu salam, if you
want gender because for us, we just think if we get the gender at any level, anything agenda hamdulillah we're successful, we're going to be saved. And that's true, but why not go for the highest level of agenda? And like this, everything we do in this life, don't just say okay, if I'm going to memorize the Quran, let me memorize five G's was no memorize the entire Quran. I'm going to lose 10 pounds, no lose 50 pounds that's going to make you get better and make you be stronger and and feel better. So always strive for the excellence Alhamdulillah in the end, even if you only get halfway there, at least you're gonna be better than you would if you were to have put low levels and
low expectations for yourself. So always aim for the top Baraka vehicle.
