00:00:20--> 00:00:41

Okay, yes, okay, Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters, this is your brother in Islam, Abdur Rahim green. I'm here with you on one of my last Facebook Lives for a while, this is going to be really important this is going to be mega This is going to be epic inshallah.

00:00:43--> 00:01:16

But first, I want you to share this video, I want to tell you a story about a sister, just the other day, we were giving a talk about the tricks of shaitaan. And this sister, literally, she sent me I was reading this comment today, she was literally said that I was about to commit a major sin. And someone shared the video with her. And because of that, and because of seeing the talk, she gave up the major sin, and she's now subscribed and joined in mastery classes.

00:01:17--> 00:02:02

And she's come with us on this journey of self mastery. Brothers and sisters tonight is very exciting. So I'm asking you to share, share, share, share, share, sharing is caring and sharing is free. Today Alhamdulillah. I spent the whole day out. Some of you I know already on the course Alhamdulilah already listened to the introduction. And some of you are advanced students. May Allah bless you. And you've already listened to some of the extra modules. By the way, for those of you still wondering, the one on learning how to learn is on its way, I'm really sorry that some things have taken a bit of time. But I've written an explanation in our private Facebook group. That's part

00:02:02--> 00:02:03

of what you get.

00:02:04--> 00:02:30

So check it out there in Sharla. I've written an explanation. So sheshe, I wanted to do another I want to share with you another story about sharing one of the brothers in my team, one of the brothers in my team, who is right now handler working on editing videos and designing stuff. You know, may Allah bless him, he actually started to practice Islam because someone shared a talk on Facebook.

00:02:31--> 00:03:00

And it was about the day of judgment and Alhamdulillah because someone shared he just listened to this talk. And he started to practice Islam. So sharing is really, really, really powerful. And we're going to have a really, really important lecture today. So I handler, let me give you a clue about what this is going to be about. It's about achieving great things. It's about achieving greatness, and it's about achieving great things.

00:03:01--> 00:03:15

And why why don't we all achieve great things? Why does some people manage to do amazing things with their life? Why does some people change the world? They change the world, and others don't.

00:03:16--> 00:03:23

And I want you to ask yourself, where are you? Are you one of those people who is changing the world?

00:03:24--> 00:03:32

I'll tell you what, I know every single one of you without doubt you want to everyone wants to be a superhero. You know why those superhero movies are so popular?

00:03:34--> 00:03:45

Everyone wants to be a superhero. Everyone wants to rescue the world. Even To be honest, the bad guys, they fool themselves into fooling that they're really good guys, and they want to change everything and make it better.

00:03:46--> 00:04:02

Everyone, nearly everyone. Now there are some genuinely nasty evil people around there's no doubt it's there are some real devils in human form. But even a lot of the people who are bad, they want to do good. Really, it's just shaytaan is confused them.

00:04:04--> 00:04:24

What's the difference then? between the people who actually do stuff with their life? And those who don't? You have those thoughts? You do every day, don't you brothers and sisters, you think about greatness. You think about doing something significant? You do it you think about making really fantastic amazing changes in your life.

00:04:25--> 00:04:33

You do, don't you? And I tell you what else you have amazing good ideas. Joseph Graham.

00:04:35--> 00:04:36

Why is alight invisible?

00:04:37--> 00:04:47

Because if I lost subhanaw taala if allow us to show himself to this, this creation, it would cease existing because that is how glorious Allah is.

It's going to be awesome. Right. And you know what? This is, this is not going to be a short evening tonight. So fasten your safety belts and stay with

We desperately need it. Let's start right here tonight on this Facebook Live. Okay. I want people to remember, this was the night. This was the night that I got inspired. And I got motivated. And I realized that I could do great things. But I began to understand what was holding me back. And then I was shown away, I was shown away I was shown a path that I could go on to make it different. Every one of you brothers and sisters, you have greatness in you. I don't mean it in an arrogant way. I don't mean it in a

00:07:26--> 00:08:07

proud way. With a Sahaba arrogant was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was he arrogant? Was he proud of stuff from Allah? No. But was he great? And did he achieve greatness? Yes, he did. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam? Yes, they did. May Allah be pleased with all of the companions, they achieved great and amazing and profound things. Why? How? Okay, there's a reason for it. Brothers and sisters. And you can do it too. We all have that potential, believe me, okay. But first, I want you to share, I want you to share, there's not enough people on here tonight. There's not enough people. Okay.

00:08:09--> 00:08:36

I know we can reach 1000s of people on this amazing platform. And that's what we need to do. We need to reach 1000s I want you to share, I want you to benefit others because if someone gets inspired or motivated, who knows? Who knows, maybe you will share this video and the person listening will be the next zarkan like the next use of essays, the next. Hamza sources, the next Ahmed deedat.

00:08:38--> 00:08:45

And there's so many chefs and so many powerful and motivating and inspiring a few of my favorite and I'm sure you have your favorites.

00:08:46--> 00:09:24

And Alhamdulillah I have the most respect and love for all of our brothers and sisters who have dedicated their life to Islam. They may not be from my way of thinking, then it may or may not be from my my particular, you know, this sector, that sector or this group or that group doesn't matter to me, right? I respect anybody who gives the life of Allah subhanaw taala dedicates their life to seeking knowledge. Even if the person is not a Muslim. I respect a person who's given their life to seeking truth and knowledge and teaching it to others.

00:09:26--> 00:10:00

So there are so many examples brothers and sisters Muslim and non Muslim. Okay, and why what is stopping you being one of those people? What is stopping you being one of those people? You're giving your reasons. keep giving me your reasons what stops you what stops you from doing it? I'm going to go through them. My daughter's writing them down right now and I've got a list right here with me. I've got a list. My team have been writing me a list. Okay. The thing is brothers and sisters, I want you to share please with

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

Not nearly where we need to be. And please don't leave this talk. It's it is going to be powerful. It is going to be extremely powerful, it's going to be motivating. And it's, I want you, like I said, to strap your safety belts on, right? You got to get rid of this social media. Like, I can't watch something for more than three seconds, stop it, behave yourself, How you going to achieve anything significant in life, if all you can do is pay attention for 15 seconds, and then you have to move on to the next thing. Seriously. Right? But you know what, I'll do my best to shout at you and move around and make it all exciting. How's that? That's the sad thing. We have to do that we

00:10:39--> 00:11:22

have to put bright colors and you know, we have to be so animated and Okay, fair enough. It's a shame because if I was talking like this, and what I was saying was really amazing. It should not make any difference to you. That's the it shouldn't. If you love truth, brothers and sisters, right? It shouldn't matter how the person is saying but that's it. We're human. We're human, of course the core and is beautiful. Why is the core and beautiful? The core and it's beautiful, because Allah knows how we need to be moved and motivated as human beings. Okay? And don't tell me that Allah. Don't tell me that Allah subhanaw taala doesn't want greatness for us doesn't want us to be great.

00:11:22--> 00:12:01

Of course he does. Why do you think Allah tells us to compete with each other, compete with each other impiety and unrighteousness compete is in a race for paradise. Which the width the width of it is greater than the heavens and the earth? Brothers and Sisters we're supposed to, to compete with each other for goodness. Right? And that's what I mean when I say greatness. That's what I mean. When I'm talking about greatness, I mean greatness in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala. That is the true greatness. Okay, whether it's a knowledge, dour, charity,

00:12:02--> 00:12:46

even just with your family, you know, greatness is relative. Are you a great mother? Are you a great father? Are you a great teacher? Are you great at your job? You know, what is it be great be something special? Like I said to you, every single one of you, I'm talking you today, right? Every one of you, you have incredible potential incredible potential. There's nothing fundamentally different between you and the greatest footballer, and you know, the greatest boxer, the greatest athlete, the greatest intellectual, the greatest scientist, the most pious and knowledgeable religious leaders. What's the basic difference between you and them? Tell me, do you really think

00:12:46--> 00:13:17

they have some innate talent that they were born like that? No, no one was born like that. Yes. Some people may have had favorable circumstances. Certainly there may be children who are amazing at mathematics at the age of four because their parents, that's all they did, or because the kid just love playing with math puzzles. Yeah, there's things like that. It's true. But it only goes so far. Brothers and sisters, it only goes so far. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Look at our messenger. Look at the Messenger of Allah.

00:13:19--> 00:13:48

Really, if you looked at him, what would you think he didn't read? He didn't write. He wasn't a poet. He wasn't you know, he wasn't famous for any of those things that Arabs thought that was so important. drinking wine, that's what they thought was great drinking wine, womanizing, fighting. You know, capturing war booty, being a big bandit, who is the biggest bad boy. That's what that's pagan Arabia, right? That's what it was like. That's what it meant. It meant to be great.

00:13:50--> 00:14:02

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was none of those things. But he is the greatest Arab that ever lived and ever will live. He's the greatest human being that ever lived. He's the best created thing.

00:14:05--> 00:14:42

But all of you have, you have this vision of improving yourself. You want to be better. Right? Don't and one of the things you can write down is I'm going to change when I'm older. And then I'll make hedge. Yeah, right. write that one down. That's going to go on the list. How many times have we heard that? Okay. Yes, I'm going to be frank armor. Okay, armor wants to be rich. That's what I'm talking about. Lots of us want to be rich and lots of people want to be rich. being rich is not

00:16:54--> 00:17:09

dirty. It's not dirty or bad to be rich. Let me tell you something. I will tell you, Allah subhanaw taala. He's the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah subhanaw taala. He said, Okay. The Prophet told us that

00:17:10--> 00:17:39

the strong believer is more beloved to Allah than the weak believer. Although in both there is good, all believers are good. What is this talking about? The scholars have said this doesn't mean strong and eemaan. Because if you're a believer it automatically when you say it's, it's something that's so obvious, it doesn't need to be repeated. Right? No, it means the believer who is physically strong, economically strong,

00:17:40--> 00:18:14

strong in that way. They have physical, economic, political, all that all that different type of strength, right? This having money is not bad. being rich is not bad. Wasting, it is bad. spending it on useless things and haram things. That is bad. Money that makes you forget a lot. That is bad. But being rich is not bad. Nor is being strong, and physically, you know, physically strong and looking good.

00:18:15--> 00:18:24

That's not a bad thing. That's part of our religion. You'd never imagine it though, looking at half of us how overweight we are.

00:18:25--> 00:19:03

How overweight we are some handle, I can hardly even walk down the street without having cardiac arrest. It's a joke brothers and sisters. It's about time we sorted ourselves out. Stop making excuses. You want to do good every day. I know you get up and you think about it all you think about those things, right? It's all locked up inside us and it's locked up inside, right? And all these amazing thoughts and you just don't do anything with them. They're just thoughts. I'm going to do this. I'd like to do that. I'd like to be rich. I'd like to have a six pack I'd like to learn be a black belt in this martial art. I want to learn Arabic I want to memorize Quran. I want to be a

00:19:03--> 00:19:18

scholar, I want to be a DI I want to be a speaker. I want to travel the world, right? I want to be you know, I want to be the best athlete and I want to Olympic gold medal. I you know all of these things. You dream about it, but but you can do it. You can do it.

00:19:21--> 00:19:28

Okay, that you you will be amazed your potential is astounding. Let me tell you something, you maybe think you're too old

00:19:29--> 00:19:30

to change.

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

Now, no,

00:19:33--> 00:19:57

no, no, no, no, no. You're never too old to change. You're never too old. How old was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when Allah gave him revelation. How old was he gone? Do you know what 1918 No. He saw when he was 14. Some of his companions were older than him. Many of them were older than him so a long while he was alone.

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

Do you know that the athletic ability of top athletes at the age of 62 is better than those same athletic athletes their ability at 18?

00:20:12--> 00:20:58

Would you believe that? You wouldn't? You wouldn't believe that, would you? That a 62 year old can have the same athletic ability as an 18 year old? Just think about that. You're too old? No, no, no, no, no, no. That's just another excuse you make, not to be great not to achieve things. Excuses, excuses, excuses. It's time to stop. It is time to stop brothers and sisters, making excuses. And it is time for greatness. It is time for you Muslims to wake up. It's time for us to emerge from our slumber and do great and amazing things with our lives. And it's gonna start right here right now, brothers and sisters, don't you dare leave until I finished with you. Okay? If you do, it's between

00:20:58--> 00:20:58

you and Allah

00:21:00--> 00:21:01

hamdulillah.

00:21:03--> 00:21:40

I want you tonight to stop talking yourself out of things. Because that's what you do. You talk yourself out. you persuade yourself, you, you know, you persuade yourself how I'm not going to do stuff, how I can't do stuff. And I'm going to go through some of those things, right? Some of those things that we some of these reasons we give us I've got a whole list of them here, brothers and sisters. Okay. But I need you to know that you have the power, you do have the power and the ability with the permission of Allah. And with the help of Allah. Right? You know, I tell you the biggest thing, I'll tell you straight out, I'm gonna tell you,

00:21:42--> 00:21:49

you can be great. And the simple reason that you are not great

00:21:50--> 00:22:03

that you do not do those things that you dream about. And that you imagine the reason you're not rich, you want to be rich. And the reason you're not rich, let me tell you, because it's not easy. It's not easy.

00:22:05--> 00:22:52

It's hard work. The reason you haven't memorized the Quran yet, it's not because it's impossible. The reason you haven't learned Arabic yet is not because it's impossible. It's not because you have you're not good at languages. The reason you haven't perfected your English, you haven't got your master's degree in Business Studies. The reason you haven't got a successful business, right? The reason that you haven't got your six pack, the reason that you're not the fastest, the strongest, the wisest, the kindest, the most, the nicest, the most charitable. What's the reason? Because it's hard work. That's the reason because you couldn't be bothered to put in the effort. That's the

00:22:52--> 00:23:14

honest truth. And so what do you do? Instead of being honest with yourself, right? And saying, I don't have the willpower? I don't have the commitment. You make excuses. Like, oh, I don't have time. You don't have time? That's a big one, isn't it? I don't have time. What a load of rubbish. You don't have time.

00:23:16--> 00:23:58

You don't have time? How much time do you spend on social media? How much time do you spend eating and drinking and sleeping when you don't need to? and a whole bunch of other stuff. And here's the problem. This is how shaytan gets us? Yeah. Shaytan wants to make you think that in order to change. You have to do it all in one go. Yeah. Like that. Yeah, boom. I changed. Like Hocus Pocus. tiddly tokus. like flipping Harry Potter or some rubbish like that. Yeah. You think it's going to be like, boom. Oh, I've changed. Yeah. Look, I'm a fat mortar. Whatever, right? I'm Tom. Oh, I got a six pack. It doesn't happen like that. Right?

00:24:00--> 00:24:07

You know what all believe me? I tell you an example. My own example. Right? You may be shocked here. Yeah. I'll give you an example. Yeah.

00:24:08--> 00:24:37

This course that I've done Seven Pillars of willpower that I've been talking about for the last however many days which is closing tomorrow, right? And believe me, this course is the key. It is one of the keys. It's not the key. Because there's lots of keys, you can find it you don't have to do my course. Right. But believe me, if you want to reach Greatness, this course will be one of the most important things that you could ever do to help you get it. You are missing out if you don't join and it's closing tomorrow. Let me tell you something about this course, though, right?

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

It was so much hot. You have no idea how much hard work it was getting this course together, right? And you know, what, six months for six months, I sat on it. I had everything. I had all the notes. I had everything and for six months. I just couldn't day after day or every day I told myself I'm going to do it now. I'm going to do it now. Every day for six months. I told myself I'm going to do it.

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

I didn't. And you know what I would do? Get on the phone. And I'd start looking at Facebook. And I'd start tweeting and all that, oh, look at this article. This is interesting. Before I know it, the whole day has gone on, I have to do this other thing. Every day. I have plenty of time. I tell most people I'm so busy. Of course, I'm busy. I'm busy giving dour. I'm busy all sorts of things. But let me be honest with myself, I wasted a whole lot of time.

00:25:25--> 00:25:57

So you know what? I realized that, wait a minute, what's wrong with you? You've been studying willpower. All you need to do is implement the things you've studied. You want to teach people about it, study it yourself. I thought, you know, I've lost weight. And I've done this and my family lives improving my work, life has improved. Wait a minute, let me implement those strategies that I am teaching others to actually get this course going. And that's what I did. And so Pamela within days, I had started writing the script. Within a month, the whole thing was filmed and it's up there and it's ready to go.

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

You can do it brothers and sisters because I you know what I did I use strategies. I use strategies to get things done to overcome procrastination, as some of you are saying, so I didn't have time. And you know what, it was just a little bit every day. You know, I said to myself, it's very simple. I said 10 minutes every day. That's it. Just 10 minutes, just just 10 minutes.

00:26:23--> 00:26:36

I promised myself that I would do 10 minutes every day. Of course, most days I did way more than 10 minutes and some days. All I did was 10 minutes, but at least I did 10 minutes and believe me, you'll get it done. Right? Maybe 10 years ago.

00:26:38--> 00:27:03

I started realizing you know after him You do not have a relationship with the book of Allah. I came across something where someone LMR had said that a person who doesn't read the Quran every day has a press the Quran has made volum Allah Quran has not given the Quran it's right. It is the right of the Quran that you read it every day. And you know, I thought well I need to do that. And I you know,

00:27:04--> 00:27:05

and

00:27:06--> 00:27:29

I started by reading literally two verses of the Quran in Arabic today and my Arabic it my Arabic was so poor, believe me just reading two or three verses I was exhausted. It was like my brain is hurting now. Oh my Allah, please. My brain is hurting from reading three verses It was so difficult. So difficult, free versus

00:27:30--> 00:27:33

Okay, guess how many pages are read a day now?

00:27:35--> 00:28:19

Guess how many? Right? I read on average, seven pages a day. Sometimes 10, sometimes seven in Ramadan? A lot more? Every day. Okay, and how did I do that? I started with 10 verse, I started with two verses. Then I went to 10 verses. Then I went to one page. And then the next year I went to two pages and the next year I went to three pages. Every Ramadan I increase it bit by bit by bit. And now Alhamdulillah You know, sometimes I read 10 pages and and you know what? I don't even feel I feel like I want to just keep reading this all day long. Bit by bit by bit brothers and sisters. Right? And I'm still alive. And I'm still here. You know, that's the reality. And who knows, I might

00:28:19--> 00:28:37

be here for I might be dead tomorrow. But I might be. But you know what the beautiful thing in Islam. Here's the beautiful thing, right? If you make the intention, Allah still rewards you. If you really I mean, the proper intention, not like hey, I'm gonna do it. And you know, you're not that's not a sincere intention. A proper real intention. Brothers and sisters. Yeah.

00:28:39--> 00:28:51

So I want you to think, right? I'm asking you because I know a lot of you know about my course the Seven Pillars of willpower. So what I want to ask you is why are you not doing my course? Why don't you signed up? Have you got no time?

00:28:52--> 00:29:30

Listen, let me tell you about this course. I have designed it for people with no time. I thought, I'm going to design it for someone who's as busy in their life as me. Right. So what do I do? This is what I specialize in brothers and sisters, I specialize in taking complicated information and making it relatively easy and simple to understand and breaking it down into easy to understand bits and pieces. That's what I that's what I love doing. When people say to me about him. You know what I love about your data is it's easy to understand. That's the biggest compliment people pay to me, because that's what I try really hard to do. I want to explain it to you in a way that you can

00:29:30--> 00:30:00

understand. So each there's 19 modules, 19 modules, so we release it day by day by day, right? One Lesson One day, one lesson one day like that. Okay? Okay, you can check it out at www dot mastery. classes.com slash Facebook mastery. classes.com slash Facebook. I've designed it to be for people who are time poor. You don't have a lot of time.

00:30:00--> 00:30:16

Don't worry, each video is maybe three minutes to five minutes. I think the longest is like 11 or 12 minutes. Plus I give you some exercises, which you need to do throughout the day. Yeah, I mean, not the whole time, but you practice it in the day. That's it.

00:30:17--> 00:31:01

A little bit, a little bit. You do that every day, believe me, after 19 days, after 90 days, brothers and sisters, I guarantee if you don't see the change, I'll give you your money back. I will give you your money back. Guaranteed, right? And just to start at $7 $7, you get two weeks. I'm making it as easy as possible. You can't afford that because that's the next excuse. I can't afford it. I can't afford to be great. I can't afford to be more than like the the limited person I am right now. Right? Because what do you need to overcome procrastination? A lot of you said, I'm lazy. It's procrastination. I keep delaying. How do you overcome that? That's what willpower is. That's

00:31:01--> 00:31:48

what will that's the definition of willpower. The definition of willpower is your ability to overcome laziness and procrastination to resist your desires and your impulses. So brothers and sisters, okay. Some of you. And honestly, believe me, I'm not joking. This is a path of greatness. Right? All those amazing ideas? How what is stopping you? It's laziness, you have to learn to overcome laziness. So no money, you don't have $7, come on $7. And after two weeks, we will I'm telling you this because I don't want anyone to get surprised. After two weeks, we charge you $90 the whole course is $97. So $7 for two weeks, and then we charge you. But if you don't want to get

00:31:48--> 00:32:24

charged, you write us an email saying I don't want any more. And believe me, you'll still get two weeks for that. And even that two weeks will be huge for you. It will be a huge impact on you, I guarantee. Right? So brothers and sisters, some of you are leaving, don't leave, please share this. I told you strap yourself on, stick with me. This is going to be very, very powerful. This is showing you how to knock your doubts over the head. All right. How about I know this stuff already? Really?

00:32:25--> 00:33:06

You know this stuff already? Okay, I actually i really doubt brothers and sisters. Like I've met very, very few people who actually even know what willpower is, is one of my biggest challenges is actually getting people to even understand why this course is important. Most people have no idea. They think willpower is like you know what I let me tell you where I was today. I was at a football match. I've never been to a football match in my life. It was in a stadium 28 nearly 30,000 people were in that stadium. 30,000 people and every single one of them was willing their team to win. Right? And I was supporting the team. I don't support any football team. But just because I the

00:33:06--> 00:33:58

people I went with was supporting a team called Wolverhampton wolves. Yeah. And they lost to Sheffield Wednesday to nil. Right? Everyone? I was willing my team to win and they didn't. Because that's not that's not real. That's like fantasy. You can't will your team to win, right? You can't it's not like a Jedi Park power. willpower is not some Jedi power that you think and you can move objects. No, that's not right. That's not what it is. Okay. Most people don't know. Right? So if you say you know this stuff already, I doubt it. I really do. But if you do, believe me, the stuff you will hear from me is is going to be unique. Because what I have done is I've taken the scientific

00:33:58--> 00:34:14

knowledge that I've been studying the scientific books on this subject for four years and more. And I've combined it with my knowledge of the Quran of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam of Islamic spirituality. That's what I've done.

00:34:15--> 00:34:53

Sharing is caring brothers and sisters, please share this because some powerful stuff you can apply all of this stuff to anything by the way, you don't have to just apply it to my willpower calls anything. The great things you want to do in your life. Make the list of your excuses. I want to hear your list. Yeah. Okay, so do you really know this stuff already? Okay, I can get this stuff free. somewhere else? Yes, you can I tell you what, you can even get it free from me. I will give you this stuff free. You're gonna have to wait two years, but bit by bit by bit through Facebook Lives like this. And through articles I will write if you follow me and you stick with me and you

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

sign up even if you just sign up. If you sign up for our list, right? I will be sending you stuff and you know what you will get

00:35:00--> 00:35:46

Most of it for free, right? But what you won't, what you have to do is spend a lot more time, a lot more energy, right? And you will never get it in quite the way that this course is packaged, it's packaged in a beautiful way to break it down, step by step, stage by stage take you through the motions. That's what it's designed to do. That's why I'm asking you to pay for. So I am not, you know, I'm, I'm not hiding this knowledge. I'm not hiding it. I'm not keeping it away from you, I will put it out there. But if you want it and that really effective way, then you need to pay for it. And there's another reason because if you don't, you will not appreciate it. And I have lots of

00:35:46--> 00:36:04

evidence of that. I've actually given this course away to people for free who have not done it. They just didn't even look at it. Okay, so brothers and sisters and $7. I'm just asking you for $7. That's what we're asking for my team who have helped produce these videos, right?

00:36:06--> 00:36:27

And have designed the beautiful graphics that go with it. And right now they're working on so many things like the quizzes and so many amazing things that come especially for the advanced students. What do you think that they don't deserve to get paid and their kids shouldn't be fed and clothed? And now, this is how the world works brothers and sisters, right?

00:36:29--> 00:36:53

And like I said, you don't like it, we'll give you your money back $97 for the course $7 to start if you want after two weeks you get charged $90 right. And 30 days you don't like it we will give you money back. I don't want to keep mentioning that so I want to knock these things right. So yeah, you can get it free elsewhere. Oh look, here's a good one. Someone told me Abdur Rahim as a selfie.

00:36:54--> 00:36:55

Okay, what does that mean?

00:36:56--> 00:37:06

Even if I am a selfie or I'm a Sufi or whatever I am, so what? So, what Who cares what he I am Hanafi Maliki Shafi.

00:37:07--> 00:37:14

How hanbali Sufi selfie? You know if wanted to hurry sudo D

00:37:16--> 00:37:18

right? What does it matter?

00:37:19--> 00:37:55

Right this knowledge is going to be beneficial does nothing Believe me in this course there is nothing except science core an and Sunnah. And you know my ideas about certain things, there's nothing that is going to keep you know, that's going to make you misguided in any way, shape, or form inshallah, okay, and we shouldn't think like that us. If you think like that, brothers and sisters, you're going to miss so much benefit. You're going to miss so much benefit seriously, the only books you read, and the only things you listen to are, you know, the one that comes from your sect or your group.

00:37:58--> 00:38:09

No, no, no. Okay, I'm going to be judged. Yeah, I'm going to be judged. That's what a lot of people think, well, first of all, you know, you can be as judged as much as you like, or not in this course, right?

00:38:11--> 00:38:30

Because you can join in our Facebook group, our private Facebook group, you can comment you can tell people your experiences, but if you just want to do it quietly by yourself, that's a beautiful thing you can but you know, brothers and sisters, you need to get on this but you need to get beyond this, I'm going to be judged thing. You are going to be judged by Allah.

00:38:31--> 00:39:07

Allah is going to judge you. Allah is going to judge you on the Day of Judgment. And that is for sure. And you need to think about that. And you need to fear Allah, you need to fear the Day of Judgment. You need to think about the day when you stand in front of your Lord and He will ask you about all the talents that he gave you. Allah has given you abilities, Allah has given you gifts. Allah has given you these ideas of greatness, these amazing things that you can do with your life, you're dreaming them, and you're not doing them. And Allah is gonna ask you.

00:39:12--> 00:39:46

Well, that's gonna ask us brothers and sisters, the two feet, the two feet of the son of Adam will not move from that place in front of their Lord until they are asked about five. Or one of those things. The first one is your life. And what did you do with it? What did you do with your life? What did you do with your life? That's the first thing. Ask yourself now. Don't wait until the day of judgment. Don't wait until the day you're in front of Allah. Ask yourself now I want you to ask yourself, answer it the question right now. Don't type it for you. What have you done with your life?

00:39:47--> 00:39:55

Imagine right now you're in front of Allah. And you're being asked the question, What have you done with your life?

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

Allah I developed a course

00:40:01--> 00:40:07

I knew could help the Muslims overcome their desires be shaytaan

00:40:08--> 00:40:16

be the best that they could be, set them on the path to control themselves and overcome their passions

00:40:17--> 00:40:19

so that they could get to agenda.

00:40:20--> 00:40:57

That's what I can say right now. Plus a lot of other things, and I'm not boasting, I'm not saying it out of boast. I don't think I'm a great person brothers and sisters, you know, but you know, I'll be honest. Yeah, I do. I do. I think about doing great things. And then you know what? I try to make it happen. I try to make it happen. And it takes hard work. That's what it takes. It takes hard work. Right? Putting I era together. Seriously, hard work, going down to speaker's corner every Sunday traveling the world calling the people to Islam. If you want to know hard work, spend three weeks with zakia night on piece TV.

00:40:58--> 00:41:02

T you know, hard work. Oh, my God, some Halloween law.

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

I still think about how hard I work for those weeks that I've spent there in India. But you know, what is some of the best stuff, you know, best weeks I've ever spent in my life. Brothers and sisters, please don't leave. I'm going to be so sad. Please don't leave because this is so important. If you leaving it's like what because you because you don't have the patience. Because you can't like listen to something for more than three minutes, please, brothers and sisters, or maybe you just don't understand what I'm saying. Okay, I'm talking about the excuses that we make the excuses that we make, right to stop ourselves being great. It's too complicated. It's too

00:41:41--> 00:42:05

complicated. Break it down. Make it simple. That's what I've done in my course the Seven Pillars of willpower mastery. classes.com slash Facebook. I've broken it down I that's it. I've uncomplicated everything on purpose to make it simple. And believe me whatever you want to do with your life, whatever you want to do. And this is the amazing thing today brothers and sisters, what do you want to do? You want to be rich?

00:42:06--> 00:42:41

You can find it The internet is full of stuff and I don't mean get rich quick. There is no get. I have a good friend of mine. Right Muslim entrepreneur network. He's a good friend of mine, Harun Qureshi, a great brother, martial law. Some people criticize what he does, like mate, like making money is dirty. And he's going to be doing something really exciting, which I'm going to be telling you about soon. Right? My son did his course. It costs a lot of money, I think over 1000 pounds. And I'm asking you for $7.

00:42:42--> 00:42:57

Over 1000 pounds, my son did his course. And our handily learned and implemented the strategies and now my son, one of my sons, right? martial law has a really good income. He just recently flew to China.

00:42:58--> 00:43:01

Right? He's only what 2526 years old.

00:43:03--> 00:43:10

Mashallah, you could be you know, and you know what, it's beautiful. He has, he has a board in his house, of all the things he has to do in the day.

00:43:12--> 00:43:24

Right? You have to overcome your laziness and procrastination. Now, heroin Qureshi, one of the things he told me, right, that lots of people buy his course. And a lot of people never do it.

00:43:25--> 00:44:04

And why? He said, you know, what it is up to him is waste what you're on about willpower. They don't, they don't have the willpower. They don't have the techniques. They don't have the strategies. They want to get rich. But they don't realize that it takes work. And they have to overcome their laziness. And they have to overcome their procrastination. And they have to implement the strategies. But to be honest, that's exactly the same. If you want to have strong willpower, you need to build your willpower muscles, right? It's but it's a muscle. It's this muscle up here. You have to build it. So building willpower muscles, takes hard work, just like building muscle muscles.

00:44:04--> 00:44:09

It's the same thing. Whatever you want to do. If you want to be great. You have to work hard.

00:44:11--> 00:44:46

Okay, but I'm going to tonight I'm going to I'm going to go something, I'm going to go through something with you in about 20 minutes, and I'm asking you to stay with me. Yes. 20 minutes. Yes. 20 minutes. So what, what's 20 minutes out of your life? Seriously? Hang on in there brothers and sisters, right? Because I will unlock all of these things on their head. Why I don't do the things that I need to do. Right? But I'm going to do something with you. It's going to be very, very powerful. We're going to do it together. Right. We're going to do something and it's going to help you right tonight. Right tonight. Yeah, it's not magic, but it's pretty good. Okay.

00:44:48--> 00:44:49

Okay, how about this?

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

I don't need it. I'm already a good Muslim. Wow. You don't need it. You're already a good Muslim. Actually. I want to say Alhamdulillah

00:45:00--> 00:45:34

This religion of handle is beautiful and this religion is easy A man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said yo Rasulullah is a young messenger of Allah How many times do I have to pray a day? The Prophet said five, because I do I have to do more than I said, No, no, not unless you want to. So okay, how about how about what else is there is a charity? How much do I have to give 2.5% of your excess wealth? Any more than that? Do I have to give more? Not unless you want to work? Is there anything else? You have to fast the month of Ramadan? demands as well? Do I have to do more than that? Is that Nope, not unless you want to.

00:45:35--> 00:45:37

Okay, anything else?

00:45:38--> 00:45:59

You have to make hadj once in your lifetime if you can afford it. Do I have to do more than that? Not unless you want to? Is there anything else? Treat what is halal is what is halal treat what is haram is what is haram? If you and the man said, I'm going to do what you said and nothing else. That's it. And the Prophet said, If this man is true to what you said he will go to Paradise.

00:46:01--> 00:46:07

That's beautiful. Islam is not hard. I'm not going to try and pretend it's hard. It's easy, right?

00:46:08--> 00:46:11

It is easy. But I wonder.

00:46:12--> 00:46:20

Are you Muslim? Who says I don't need it? Because I'm already a good Muslim? Do you get up for fudger? Every day?

00:46:21--> 00:46:37

Do you say all of your prayers every day? Do you really treat what is halal as what is halal and haram? What is haram? Do you do you keep away from backbiting and slandering and gossiping, and lying and spreading tales?

00:46:38--> 00:46:40

Right? Do you is your money? Helen?

00:46:42--> 00:46:58

How do you treat your wife? Your kids? Right? Ask yourself? Are you really a good Muslim? Couldn't you be a better Muslim? Don't you want to be a better Muslim? Don't you want to grow? Don't you want to grow? Don't you want to improve? Don't you want to be better?

00:47:02--> 00:47:19

Yeah, surely you do. Brothers and sisters, please share some more powerful stuff coming up. And who knows who's going to be motivated and you'll get rewarded for it? Share it brothers and sisters. Okay, so here's a big one. I'm not ready to change.

00:47:21--> 00:47:22

That is a big one.

00:47:24--> 00:47:52

I'm not ready to change. That's a big one for people, right? But first of all, that's just not true. Anyway, you see, you're not ready to change. But in reality, you are changing every single minute and every moment of your life is change. Right? That's the reality. The cells of your body are changing every second, you're getting older, every second every millisecond you are changing, right? Not thinking you're not ready to change is changing.

00:47:53--> 00:48:15

No brothers and sisters, when are you going to be ready for change? How long have you got? Do you know how long you've got? Do you know how long you're going to be alive? Do you know the day you're gonna die? Do you know it's not tomorrow? or next week? How do you know? You don't know? You don't know? Do you? So when are you going to change? When are you going to change? I'm telling you, I'm asking you to change tonight.

00:48:17--> 00:48:57

And it has to be tonight. It has to be tonight if you want to come with me on a journey, because that's what I'm asking you to do. I'm asking you to come with a journey with me on a journey of self mastery to become a master of yourself. And when you become a master of yourself, you will achieve greatness. That's what it is about. It is about achieving everything you want to achieve everything you want to be rich, you want to be strong. You want to be fast. You want to memorize Quran, you want to be the best Muslim, the best person you can be whatever it is, whatever is right. Do you want to rule the world? What do you want? Right? Seriously, what does it take?

00:48:59--> 00:49:17

Now I could suggest to you that some of those things, you could think about it and do something better. That's not the point. Right? The point is, it doesn't matter. You want to achieve greatness, but what do you need? Okay. Brothers and sisters, I'm asking you to come with me on a journey of self mastery.

00:49:18--> 00:49:49

The first step, the first step is building your ability to control yourself, not to just give in to your temptations that whenever a thought comes to you, right, you don't just get into it. Whenever temptation is presented in front of you, you don't just succumb to it. That's the first thing you need to do. You need to get a grip of yourself. You need to you need True Grit. You need determination. You need patience, you need perseverance you need subber.

00:49:52--> 00:49:52

Right.

00:49:54--> 00:50:00

You need willpower because that's what willpower is true grit, determination, self discipline. That's what

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

It's all about so I'm asking you to join me on this journey. You know, we can achieve something together, you can help me and I can help you and show our lives. It's not.

00:50:56--> 00:51:07

I'm doomed to fail. That's another one, isn't it? That's another excuse to make yourself somehow I'm doomed to fail. I'm doomed. I can't do it.

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

Honor.

00:51:13--> 00:51:18

Is that you grow? Are you doomed to fail? Right. Mohammed Tanveer?

00:51:19--> 00:51:26

I just reading your names rather. To Casanova. First Name Is that okay, rim, Hasson

00:51:27--> 00:51:30

azima are you doomed to fail, bro? Sister?

00:51:31--> 00:51:33

Are you doomed to fail?

00:51:34--> 00:52:16

No. You know, that's, that's, that's the excuses you make for yourself. Right? That's what you keep telling yourself. So you have an excuse not to do the hard work that it takes to succeed. Because success does take hard work. I'm not gonna lie to you. I'm not gonna say Oh, it's also easy. I've got a magic potion. You know, boom, everything's going to be amazing. No, no, no, no, even if you do my willpower course, it will be hard. It will be I have made it as easy as possible. I have broken it down into beautiful little short modules. But you still have to do the exercises, you're still going to have to think about yourself and your life, you're still going to have to try and make the

00:52:16--> 00:52:26

change. And that is uncomfortable. It is difficult. It is uncommon, you will be uncomfortable. And your nuts will not like it and shaytan especially is gonna hate it.

00:52:28--> 00:52:42

Believe me, shaytan hates this. He hates this two bits. In fact, yesterday when I was doing a Facebook Live, I kept getting cut off saying Showtime. He doesn't like this one single little bit brothers and sisters, okay.

00:52:43--> 00:52:58

It's all these self limiting thoughts that what it is self limiting, you are limiting yourself that you don't know what you're capable of. You are capable of amazing things. Whatever I have done brothers and sisters, you can do it. Whatever I've done, you can do it.

00:53:00--> 00:53:00

You can

00:53:04--> 00:53:13

you just need to know how. And I'm not I'm not presenting myself to you as a standard, actually quite the opposite. I think my level is so low, right?

00:53:14--> 00:53:16

You know, I'm like the base level.

00:53:17--> 00:53:59

You know, you need to at least sort of get up to my level and move on and beyond. And that's what I hope for all of you are better than me inshallah. Hopefully one day I will be buying one of your courses. That's honestly really, I hope that you brothers and sisters, and you know, the amazing things this has happened to me. I've had students when I first became Muslim, I had people sitting in my circle, right? And I ended up studying from those same people later on. One of my friends, one of us a young lad sitting in my circle, learning about tauheed and about Allah and about Sunnah. Right? He went on to study in Medina, Mashallah he became an Arabic teacher, and I was going to his

00:53:59--> 00:54:07

house learning Arabic from him. He used to be my student and I and while I am so happy, I'm so happy Alhamdulillah right.

00:54:09--> 00:54:50

You know, I get so happy when my kids tell me about you shouldn't do this. You should feel Allah. This is not right. It makes me so happy. You can't even you know that my kids advising me and teaching me so I hope that you will become my students. Right? Sorry. You become my teachers. Maybe one day I will be doing one of your courses, obviously. Wow. Look at what the I thought I knew this subject. These guys really know this subject. You know, why not brothers and sisters, but you have to start somewhere. You have to make the effort. Okay, that's what I'm encouraging you to do. Okay, don't limit yourself. You can do great things.

And it's closing tomorrow, I can't, here's another one, I can't understand this stuff. Oh, that's what I've told you already, I made it really easy to understand. And by the way, some of you have even emailed me and asked me to provide a transcripts. Now we were providing a transcript of the whole course only for advanced students.

It's inclusive 19 modules, course notes, the site's broken down into course notes, we

00:55:44--> 00:56:29

Plus, you get to join the Facebook group, where I've been interacting already with students module one, the introduction, not module one, but the introduction was open today.

00:56:40--> 00:57:23

That's it, brother. What can I say brothers and sisters? How easy? Can we make it for you? Okay? Okay, so I don't need willpower. The only person would say that they don't need willpower. As someone who doesn't understand what willpower is. If you didn't have willpower, you'd be an animal. You might as well be a donkey, or a cow, or a sheep or a dog or a pig. Okay? Because that that what's diff, what makes the difference between us and animals is willpower, right? The ability to give up our desires and our temptations in order to reach a long term goal. This is what defines us as human beings we can choose to worship Allah or not we can choose to follow his religion or not.

00:57:23--> 00:57:28

Animals, all of them, they worship Allah. They all worship Allah.

00:57:29--> 00:57:43

Without that they all of it, all of them do. We don't know how exactly but they all do. And they have no choice. Like angels, they have no choice the only beings that we know about who have the choice to worship Allah or not other human beings in the gym.

00:57:45--> 00:57:48

So brothers and sisters that some of the excuses, okay.

00:57:49--> 00:58:28

Procrastination is the big one procrastination. I'm too lazy. Some of you said that right in the beginning. And that is that the reality is this. The only thing that's stopping you being the best person that you could possibly be right is procrastination, and laziness. That's what it is. And that's what I teach in my course. I teach in my course, how to overcome procrastination and laziness. That's one of the most important things. Okay. Brothers and sisters, you do you have the power to control your negative thoughts. You don't have to let those negative thoughts take control of you. Okay? Okay, you can achieve what you want to achieve. You can do it. You just have to want

00:58:28--> 00:58:47

to make it happen. So now I told you, I'm going to do something very powerful for you. There's no magic tricks here. Okay, but this is powerful. Okay. So I want you to do this with me. Okay. I'm not going to do X have to read so I want I want you to close your eyes. Obviously, if you're driving a car,

00:58:48--> 00:59:03

you can't close your eyes. Yeah. Even if your drive you can still do this exercise. But I want you to close your eyes. Okay, so I'm going to do this. For those of you I'm not going to meet you close your eyes, stupidly, close your eyes now. Now I want you to imagine yourself, right? taking

00:59:04--> 00:59:05

the steps

00:59:06--> 00:59:40

that you need to do to go on the path to greatness. What do you need to do break it down in your mind step by step. This is something I'll be teaching right later on. Right now, I want you to imagine right? After this Facebook Live, I want you to imagine taking the steps to join me on this journey. Going to WWW dot mastery classes.com slash Facebook, having the courage having the guts to sign up.

00:59:42--> 00:59:54

I want you to feel how good you're gonna feel about that. Because you know that you're taking steps to really changed your life. Okay. And that's not just I want you to imagine listening to the first video.

00:59:56--> 01:00:00

I want you to imagine listening to the first video listening to me in

01:00:00--> 01:00:17

introducing to you about the course about how it's going to benefit you and improve you. I want you to imagine listening to the first lesson, I'm going to be telling you what willpower is about. I'm going to be telling you, I'm going to be giving you some

01:00:18--> 01:00:41

exercises to practice some things to think about. And you're gonna be doing those things throughout your day. Right. And I want you to feel how your life bit by bit, it's not going to happen in an instant, but you're going to feel that change, you're going to feel yourself, I want you to feel yourself being able to do those things, being able to overcome laziness, being able to overcome procrastination.

01:00:43--> 01:01:16

You have the willpower, you have the ability, you have the strength, you have the energy, right, I want you to imagine thinking about the steps that it's going to take to get you there memorizing the court am what are you going to have to do? Think about it being rich? What are you going to have to do? Imagine that in your mind, okay.

01:01:17--> 01:01:31

I believe you don't need to, it's not necessary. It's not compulsory. But I really believe brothers and sisters, that if you do this classes with me, it's going to help you hugely to get okay.

01:01:32--> 01:01:45

I want you to imagine feeling energized and excited. Right? And being in control of your desires, and overcoming obstacles. Okay, brothers and sisters, you can open your eyes Now, if you've been with me on that. Okay.

01:01:47--> 01:01:48

So brothers and sisters,

01:01:49--> 01:02:31

this one, I've just gone through something called visualization, I only touched upon it, it's very, very powerful technique. And actually, this is my whole next series, because when I said I want you to come with me on a journey of self mastery, the Seven Pillars of willpower is just the first. After that we have other things in store, right? Very, very powerful stuff. That is, you know, different levels of reaching greatness in your life. That's what it's about, of being really the best person that you can be. That's what it's about. I don't claim on there yet. We're gonna get there together in Sharla. But what I do know is I've studied a lot about these things. Okay.

01:02:32--> 01:02:37

And it's ongoing, as always, you can always improve brothers and sisters.

01:02:39--> 01:02:41

I just want to mention now, right?

01:02:42--> 01:03:04

That, thank you for staying with me. Through this Facebook Live. A lot of you stayed with me, a few of you dropped off. Thank you for sharing, you can keep sharing, please, please share, share, share. Let me just go through one last time. what this is all about, and why am I doing this? I spent four years studying this topic.

01:03:05--> 01:03:16

I lost a lot of weight, a lot of weight. Right? I got I'm probably as fit now. As when I was 19 years old.

01:03:17--> 01:03:25

Probably maybe 1920 I'm as fit now as I was I might even be fitter. I can do things now that I couldn't even do when I was 19. Right?

01:03:27--> 01:03:38

Because I I exercise regularly, actually apart from these two weeks. It's been crazy doing this willpower course stuff, right? Preparing stuff. So I

01:03:39--> 01:03:58

I just want to get out on my bike and do some stuff. But you know, I'm doing martial arts. Now. I've always wanted to do martial arts and I do two lessons a week, right? I've got myself up to purple belt. I'm aiming for a black belt and beyond. It's fantastic. I love it. I've always been interested in that.

01:04:00--> 01:04:24

And all of this brothers and sisters is connected. Of course it's all from Allah is the helpers from Allah. Right? It's all from Allah and I have to thank Allah. I'm not saying it's all for myself. But you know, a lot doesn't change your condition until you change. When you change what's in yourself alone will help you you have to understand that brothers and sisters, right?

01:04:26--> 01:04:26

Tie your camel.

01:04:28--> 01:04:37

And then trust in Allah. make the effort. step towards Allah and Allah will come towards you go towards work towards Allah, Allah will come towards you at speed.

01:04:39--> 01:04:41

Right? So yes,

01:04:42--> 01:04:59

Allah will help you. But you have to help yourself. You need to take the first steps Believe me, you need to take the first steps when you take those first steps that Allah will give you so much Baraka and so much blessing but you need to make that effort brothers and sisters and then Allah will help you Okay,

01:05:00--> 01:05:25

So that's what I did. And it's made a huge impact in my life. And you know, whenever something has impacted me, I always think about how can I share this with my brothers and sisters? How can I benefit my Muslim brothers and sisters with this? Honestly, that's what I think. And I start with my family, right? And I start with my friends. And then I get it out to you, brothers and sisters. That's what I'm trying to do. Right.

01:05:27--> 01:06:07

And I spent a lot of time putting this course together a lot of effort putting this course together. I told you a little bit about that at the beginning. I'm going to tell you briefly what it's about. It's it's 19 modules. We drip feed it to you. So you get one lesson a day, except on the weekends. So some people have already been complaining, oh, we can't access lesson number two, we can't access lesson number one. No, you can't. Because you haven't made it available. You have to do it day by day. And because of that, it's closing tomorrow. Because we can't have people coming in, right? On. When we're halfway through the course and they're doing day one, how can we do that? We need to

01:06:07--> 01:06:36

interact with you, on your private on the private Facebook page, we've got a private Facebook page, I'll handle it already. There's a lot of stuff out there. Where we discuss with people, we talk with people, they share their thoughts and their experiences going to be so powerful. Like I said, this is a journey. We're going on this journey together, we're on board. That's why I say welcome on board, because I feel it's like a boat. We're all on this boat together. Alhamdulillah. So brothers and sisters, the ship is sailing tomorrow. People have already started today.

01:06:37--> 01:07:22

But the ship is sailing tomorrow. So what I mean is, if you haven't signed up by tomorrow, you will not be able to sign up, you need to go to WWW dot mastery. classes.com slash Facebook $7 is all we're asking for. And after two weeks, we'll bill you $90 9097 is the full price of the full course. Okay, there's an extra advanced course which you will find out about and that's more. Okay. It's amazing. But believe me, even the the course as it is, is really amazing. Okay, the package the other packages for really serious students. Okay, super serious. I mean, super serious, right?

01:07:25--> 01:08:04

And that's it. That's why you drip feed it to you, because we want to have you to have the best experience, the best study experience, the best learning experience that you can have. We want you to do the course. We don't want to sell it to you only, we want you to do it. I told my I told the guys in my team. I said to them, Listen, guys, this is not about making money. It's not about making money for me. Right? Maybe for you. That's the most important thing. And I know it's not these are good brothers. I said, but for me, the most important thing is I want people to do this course I want really I want I wish every Muslim could do it. Right? And you may sell to him, why don't you

01:08:04--> 01:08:12

give it for free? Then I'll tell it's there's a simple reason. You wouldn't do it, you wouldn't even take it seriously. If it's for free.

01:08:14--> 01:08:20

things you're given for free. What thing that you were ever given for free? Did you ever really, really take that seriously?

01:08:22--> 01:08:31

Come on, let alone Of course, some of you might. I agree. I have. But you know why? That's because I have the skills and willpower, right?

01:08:32--> 01:09:06

So I because I've studied willpower. It's actually one of the techniques to get you to do something. It's called pre commitment. It's one of the most powerful the I'm giving stuff away for you already, right. It's called pre commitment. Pre commitment is considered by behavioral economists, economists as the most powerful willpower motivator, right? And making people pay for a course is a type of pre commitment. Okay, I honestly I would charge Honestly, I would charge $1,000

01:09:07--> 01:09:20

I would if I but the only reason I don't do that is because it would make it too unaffordable for too many people. And otherwise I would I charge $1,000 right. So brothers and sisters, okay.

01:09:22--> 01:09:47

Tomorrow it closes the ship is leaving the boat is going from the harbor. And honestly, that's how I imagined it. I imagined it is a cruise liner with a bunch of amazing brothers and sisters. We're already interacting on the Facebook page. We're already I'm so excited. I can't tell you I am so looking forward. I actually really hope I don't die in the next four weeks. Because this is one of the most exciting things that

01:09:48--> 01:10:00

has happened to me is this course right? And you know, so I'm that's what I feel like we're on this beautiful boat together and the students are on board.

01:10:00--> 01:10:26

And we're setting sail tomorrow. If you don't join, well, we'll have another cruise sometime. But I don't know when. And you know what, I might just go on another cruise in a totally different place and continue my journey with the guys who are with me at the moment. That's the truth. I might not even who knows where it goes, I might not even open this again, I say, That's enough. I got enough. Let's just go guys. It's you and me. Let's go on this journey, right?

01:10:27--> 01:10:32

So if you want to come, you want to join this journey, you want to be great. You want to do great things.

01:10:33--> 01:10:40

D, you just want to keep making excuses. Please don't be like that. Please stop making excuses. Stop it. Right?

01:10:42--> 01:10:54

Stop making excuses. And reasons why you can't be the best person you can be. Right? The world is your oyster. Yeah, let me help you.

I need you to sign up for this course. Because I need you to do it. And I need people to give me feedback and tell me what they thought and how can we make it better? And how can we help many, many more Muslims be the best Muslims that they can be? And even people who are not Muslim? You don't have to be a Muslim to do this. Yes, it's designed, you know, to be more for Muslims, but I've actually done it. So even if you're not a Muslim, you can really benefit from this. I guarantee if you're not a Muslim. And

01:11:36--> 01:11:50

the guarantee is there brothers and sisters, what are you getting? You're getting 19 modules we drip feed it to you. So don't worry, if you go on and like on Tuesday, it's like I can't access No, you can't, you will not get it to you've done the day.

01:11:51--> 01:11:58

There's a reason for that, because you need to do exercises. I don't want people watching 19 videos one after the other, you will not benefit from it.

01:11:59--> 01:12:05

This is we are I'm practicing what I preach in this course. So 19 modules, okay?

01:12:54--> 01:13:28

This morning, people have already started their first exercise and men telling me that they've already started their first exercise this morning. Okay. And some of them have found it really difficult. Just the first ever so simple. And someone saying oh, I'm going to find this really hard. But it's beautiful, because they say but I'm going to do it. Okay. So and I thought it was simple. It just goes to show. I mean, you know, it's a simple exercise, the simplest thing you could imagine you could I couldn't even imagine that people will find it hard, but they have. And that's even that is exciting for me because that's a learning journey for me. So brothers and sisters, just to tell

01:13:28--> 01:13:30

you one more time, it's $9.

01:13:32--> 01:14:04

Everything I've said today, you don't need to apply it to join my course you can apply all of that stuff to to, you know, all those negative thoughts that come in your head, knock them on the head, go through the reasons write them down. You know, and then just knock them on the head every single one of them just like I did with you. Write all your excuses. You have no excuses. I've dealt with every single one of them. Okay, so what excuse Do you have brothers and sisters? What excuse do you have left? Right?

01:14:07--> 01:14:13

That's it from me rather than sisters. It's been epic. Like I said, certainly for me. It's been amazing.

01:14:14--> 01:14:41

And believe me you have everything literally everything to gain.

01:14:42--> 01:14:48

Brothers and sisters, this is going to be my last Facebook Live for a while.

01:14:49--> 01:14:59

I've got to concentrate now on my students. On interacting on the course I'm developing some extra modules as well for some special people. My special special

01:15:01--> 01:15:02

advanced students

01:15:04--> 01:15:07

Alhamdulillah. All of you are special for me. You're all special.

01:15:09--> 01:15:17

But the advanced students are showing real dedication and commitment. on another level. All of you anyone doing this course, needs dedication and commitment.

01:15:19--> 01:15:37

So whoever you are, it doesn't matter that make a difference to me. I'm here to help you. I can't promise I'll answer every question. I can't even promise I'll be on it every day. I do have other things. I have other commitments. I've got a whole next Wednesday. I've got a whole day's filming in London, for IRA

01:15:39--> 01:15:52

for the dour for a Christmas campaign we have coming out. Okay, so I have lots of other commitments, I have my family. And my heating is still my boiler is still out. So hopefully, shall I make sure it's gonna get fixed on

01:15:53--> 01:15:54

fixed on

01:15:55--> 01:16:33

Monday. Thank you, Samir. And yes, so, you know, feeding feeding our brothers and sisters a little bit touchy a little bit what they might be going through in some countries. I say to my kids today, Syria, you know, don't worry about the heating, we we have our life at least we have glass in the windows, our brothers and sisters in Syria, many of them have no glasses been bombed out. They don't have a hospital to go to they don't have food, and it's cold. So we got it lucky. There's always someone who's got it worse than you. And this is another thing brothers and sisters, you know, Allah has made our life. You know, I think about this a lot. I think about this, a lot of us made our life

01:16:33--> 01:16:57

so easy. How can we not utilize this free time that we've got in such a productive way? If I'm not growing, if I'm not making myself the best that I can be? If I'm not making myself the fittest and the strongest, and the you know, even the wealthiest for the sake of Allah, not just for like comfort and luxury to do great things with it. Brilliant things, right?

01:16:59--> 01:17:03

for my family and for my friends, and for the oma

01:17:06--> 01:17:16

What are we doing how Allah has given us all of these gifts? Every one of you listening to me now on Facebook Live, I'm sure every one of you maybe there maybe there are some of you in Syria and your life is really difficult.

01:17:17--> 01:17:51

In a way that is beyond the imagining of most of us. Okay, maybe. And you know, my, my heart mine, my doors go to you, my love goes to you, all of you. Even those of you who may be doing terrible things, you don't even realize it. I asked a lot to guide you and to guide me. Because even I know that a lot of you are doing bad things, or maybe an audit you think you're doing the right things. Like I said at the beginning. Most people want to be heroes, brothers and sisters, they do.

01:17:52--> 01:17:56

They do that we all most people want to do great things.

01:17:57--> 01:17:59

But have you got the tools.

01:18:02--> 01:18:05

So that's it really. I could go on and on and on.

01:18:06--> 01:18:09

Seven Pillars of willpower, the boats leaving tomorrow.

01:18:12--> 01:18:14

$9 five $7 sorry.

01:18:15--> 01:19:00

Two weeks after that, you get to build $90 if you don't like it, you can cancel it. I'm not gonna say it anymore. That's it from me. For those of you who get on the boat and get on board and come with me on this, this voyage of self discovery and self mastery. I'm looking forward to it. But right now, I need to sign off. And I think I need to get some sleep because my team have been working me to the bone. I think last night I was up until I don't even know what time the other night four in the morning. were desperate for those of you who are already on the course. If you haven't, I don't know what the update is on the learning to learn module for the advanced students.

But I'm in one place my team's in another place. We have to get stuff from my studio onto the camera through the internet. They're big files we have, you know, this is missing that's missing. It takes a bit of time. So forgive us brothers and sisters will work in progress. This is our first launch. first big launch that we've done. We're going to make mistakes bear with us be patient please for those of you lots of comments on the on the course you know what's happening and this and that. Okay, sorry for the mistakes

01:19:41--> 01:19:59

you've made and there probably will be some more Be patient. That's what Bill was about. It's all about being patient. So, you know, look at it as a test and then a practical application of what you're supposed to be learning in Sharla. Brothers and sisters, that's it for me. Like most of you start with me through the whole

01:20:00--> 01:20:36

of this and May Allah bless you, you know, makes me feel so good. May Allah bless you there are people it shows that there are people out there who can stick with it and stay with it. And we need a lot more of that brothers and sisters we need a lot less of I can only put up with something for three seconds and then I give up. How are we going to achieve great things like that? Brothers and sisters, whether you join me or you don't whether you come on board tomorrow or by tomorrow The boat is leaving whether or not you do that. May Allah bless you may Allah guide you may Allah strengthen your willpower. May Allah strengthen your commitment to him to his Deen, May Allah help you to
