Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome to the first live on this channel, I have been thinking a lot. And I'm like, What do I do because we're about to go into a lockdown for the next three months, Allah knows how long this is going to last in Canada, some are saying two months, and we're saying three months only Allah knows. And I said to myself, I need to do something that gets me keeps me going. And I want to put that, that, you know, like the whole hustle vibe that people have nowadays, like, you know, I'm hustling, I'm putting in these efforts, and I'm doing this, and this is my side hustle, or my full hustle or my main hustle or whatever you want to call it. And
oftentimes, in this hustle culture, we forget the purpose of why we exist. And what I wanted to start was I wanted to start my hustle. If there's such a thing, I wanted to start my hustle with a hadith that would make me grounded and anybody else that wants to do these side hustles or main hustles keeps them grounded and keeps the ultimate purpose in their life in front front and center in their lives. And I'm going to begin this with the Hadith that Allah subhanaw taala did this Bootsy by Prophet sallallahu sallam, there is a lot of discussion about this Hadees whether it's his hobbies, his life or week, there's a lot of discussion about it. Overall, the scholars they agree
that the meaning of this hadith is really really powerful. Allah subhanaw taala he says in the splits, he says, Yeah, I've been to Adam latter half and now we've been the Solon or son of Adam, don't be afraid of the one that's got power. Do not be afraid of the one who has power. My Adama Sultani bath pa as long as I have got power ie Allah subhanaw taala has got power. Don't ever be afraid of what is going to happen to you.

And then Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, even Adam Haluk Toukley hybridity This is where the side hustle comes in. Allah is saying that I have created you for one purpose, which is that we worship Allah subhanaw taala I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that you and I and everybody that is going to watch this and this hustle that hopefully I'm trying to put in Allah subhanaw taala gives us the power the ability to to keep this front and center in our lives so that we don't get
