00:01:59--> 00:03:04

I'm sure every one of us, every one of us would like to be a person of influence by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala and Subhan Allah as Muslim mean, we are meant to be impressive, impressive not to show off, but to influence a powerful, you know, personality on others. Because we, every one of us as muslimeen, we carry the brand of Islam. And we know Islam is beautiful. Islam is impressive. Islam is positive, Islam is very impactful, and an influential message from Allah subhanaw taala. So when we carry this brand of Islam, we, as muslimeen also have to be awesome. We have to be impressive in order to share and have a positive impact on the society and wherever we move in the

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

world. 100 Allah, so awesome, yours Subhana Allah, where do we begin with? We begin with know your goal as Muslims, as Muslims, we need to understand our clear destination, what is the ultimate goal? And as I've mentioned over here, the Muslim vision should be very, very clear. We shouldn't have any kind of ambiguity in terms of knowing what do we ultimately want to achieve? Where do we want ourselves to be? You know, eventually. So our vision, the Muslims vision is the ultimate vision should be to see Allah subhanho wa Taala. To have that pleasure, that blessing that honor to see the majestic face of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is seen in the highest levels of Jana, Jen nettle

00:04:11--> 00:04:46

for those that is our vision. So that's the ultimate goal of an awesome youth or an awesome Muslim and Subhanallah why we said particularly youth, because we know we know that we have been reminded by our Nadia Karim sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that youth is such an important phase of life. That the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, save five before five, and the first

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

category that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam talked about and told us is save save your youth before you get old. Why?

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

Because youth My beloved brothers and sisters is the face where your energies are at high level where you have a lot of strength Subhanallah both mentally, physically, you know emotionally intellectually you will have the ability to perform at your peak. And that is the reason youth in Islam is absolutely important and we just cannot, my beloved brothers and sisters, we just cannot miss this phase. We cannot afford to miss this most important, impactful phase of life and that is youth. So awesome youth to be an awesome youth you need to have an awesome goal and that is to see Allah subhanho wa Taala in the highest levels of Jannah insha Allah

00:05:54--> 00:06:36

also in order to be an awesome youth, you need to follow right role models, we know that we have been given with an ability by Allah subhanaw taala to choose to follow certain role model. So naturally we are inclined towards looking at someone looking up to somebody, right? So if we have powerful role models in our lives, if we have awesome role models in our lives, obviously when we follow them, we follow their path we follow their way, we will also be an awesome youth insha Allah is an ally to Allah and we know without a doubt,

00:06:37--> 00:07:32

without any dispute, every Muslim agrees with one unanimous universal, the most influential role model for all of us until eternity, and that is prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah subhanho wa Taala says luck. Can Allah configure us to rely he also worked on Hasina, the best example for you? The best role model for you to follow in your life is the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and those who came after him the quantifier Asha Deen the other Sahaba and the other righteous predecessors so we need to have right role models in order to you know, pave our way to the direction of that goal that we have set to see Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:34--> 00:07:50

be ambitious and act and this is very, very important. My beloved brothers and sisters, the oma especially the youth, we can never ever aim low and have lower hopes in Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:51--> 00:08:31

Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, I'm the ni a dB. I am as my sirven think of me, so you in me if we want to be awesome, we need to have high hopes in Allah subhanahu wa Tada. We just cannot think No, no way as muslimeen we need to think high. We need to be absolutely ambitious. We need to have high aspirations in order to be awesome in our lives. Insha Allah, Allahu taala so this is very, very important to have high hopes in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:08:32--> 00:09:26

know your potential to be an awesome youth you need to understand what is you are blessed with Subhan Allah we know that the greatest, you know, a wave that we can be awesome is by utilizing our time so mark these words, my beloved brothers and sisters, use your time before you lose your time. Use your skills before you lose it. Use your potential to the max use your knowledge, use your your abilities that Allah subhanahu wa taala have blessed you width. In order to make you an awesome you need to go through this phase of utilizing what you and I have been blessed by the one and only Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:09:28--> 00:09:59

This is very, very important. My beloved brothers and sisters, in order for us to be awesome. We need to keep our learning active throughout our lives meaning as we say we are the student of knowledge from cradle to grave. So we need to die as a student of knowledge. Learning never ends, learning never ends. So we need to carry on the journey of learning again and again. And that is the way forward

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

For an awesome youth and an awesome Muslim in general,

00:10:05--> 00:10:57

work on solutions. You know, you as youth, you have so much of creativity, you have so much of enthusiasm, you have so much of passion in order to bring a positive change in the society. You need to figure out what kind of problems that this society is facing. You need to come together in order to brainstorm what is the problem all about, identify the problem, identify the areas where you can actually provide as a solution to those problems. For example, if there is a problem of poverty, come together, come together and brainstorm and think how we can eradicate poverty. If there is a problem of lack of education, come together, brainstorm and provide the solution. If there is a

00:10:57--> 00:11:56

problem of health care, come together, brainstorm, get innovative ideas and give it to the society. Well, you can do it and you have to do it. Allah subhanahu wa taala has raised us for the benefit for the welfare of the people. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, can turn on mutton reject leanness, you are the best of the people raised for mankind, for the betterment of mankind, for the benefit of mankind, Subhan Allah, so meet v as muslimeen we need to have this mindset of helping others. If you help others, Allah will help you, if you are kind to others, Allah will be kind to you, if you take out an effort on doing something good to others, Allah subhanho wa Taala will help you likewise. So

00:11:56--> 00:12:04

my beloved brothers and sisters, come up and work out on the solutions, be a part of the solution not be a part of the problem.

00:12:06--> 00:12:25

Keep seeking advice from the elders. Now this is very important as youth, we need to learn from our elders who have experience who have exposure, who know what what is, you know, beautiful and what is powerful in order to bring a positive transformation in the society.

00:12:29--> 00:13:03

Don't ever fear the failure, experience it, experience it, you need to face You know, the the failure sometimes in order to grow in life Subhan Allah And to be honest, like as we were mentioning, you know, the competitions that we have, no one is a loser. Mark these words, no one is a loser in life in those who actually participate so that participation itself is winning.

00:13:04--> 00:13:32

You taking your initiative to be a part of something that is good is itself a success. itself is a winning Subhanallah so in life in order to be awesome. Many times we feel the failure, don't worry, experience it, you need to move forward with the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala understand the fact that Allah help those who help themselves.

00:13:33--> 00:14:36

Never ever compromise on your identity. You and me are blessed with the greatest gift without me asking what is that? He Daya guidance on Islam. This Deen is the greatest gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you being Muslim, is the beautiful and powerful identity. You should never, ever lose this identity. You are a proud, you know believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala you don't associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala you submit yourself to Allah subhanho wa Taala you follow the instructions of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So why do we have to be embarrassed? Why do we have to be shy away from that which Allah has given us as a ruling as a principle to live in our lives, my

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

beloved brothers and sisters, let us always keep our identity as a Muslim, intact and make sure that you are proud, proud and not in the sense of you are you know, looking down others but you are content you are confident you know, this is very, very important in the current time because of the

00:15:00--> 00:15:26

Other you know, influences or perhaps bad influences, because of you know, so many other factors, the Muslims they are tending to lose their identity Muhammad is being called us more Fatima is called as far and and so on and so forth. So we are losing the identity and which is really, really not the attribute of an awesome youth who is a Muslim Subhan Allah.

00:15:28--> 00:15:54

Let us talk about the qualities of those who are awesome in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala were impressive in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala with an intention with an intention, my beloved brothers and sisters, to possess these qualities so that we may impress Allah subhanaw taala at the first and also have a positive influence on the society in sha Allah.

00:15:57--> 00:16:56

The first quality that I would like to share with you is purify yourself, you know, Allah subhana wa Taala says, of lama zakka, he is indeed successful, who purifies himself and Subhana Allah, when a lot of what Isaiah he says that, you know what, I love so and so. So Allah is declaring, and making us clear in the Quran that Allah loves certain people, and one of the categories of the people who Allah subhanho wa Taala loves is those who purify themselves. Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah, Al Baqarah surah number two and number 222 the people are mutata, hearing those people who are beloved to Allah subhanaw taala, those who are pure Subhan Allah and how do we gain the purity we gain the

00:16:56--> 00:17:45

purity from our heart, having Allah subhanaw taala in our heart, not having anyone associating partners with him in our heart, not having any grudges about the people, having an enemy, you know, free from all kinds of evils, you know, enmity, envy, jealousy, you know, bad feeling wrong thoughts, you know all these things, your free will, and that's how you are pure and you are beloved to Allah subhanaw taala and on top of it, you need to keep asking Allah to forgive you. Because when you ask Allah to forgive you and He forgives you when you're forgiving, you are pure. And that is how we become awesome in order in order to reach that goal to see Allah subhanho wa Taala. The

00:17:45--> 00:18:14

second quality My beloved brothers is be conscious gain taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala. And where does taqwa lies? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, tequila hoonah Taka Hakuna taqwa. hoonah your Tacoma is here. Your Tacoma is here. Your Tacoma is here. This is what the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam because Tacoma is not something you know physical you know that kind of thing where you see and you don't see no, it is the

00:18:16--> 00:19:07

it is the partition is the barrier between you and everything that is bad Subhan Allah so you keep a shelter, you keep a shield, you cover yourself from all that is haram and you are always engaged in that which is halal, which is good which is pleasing to Allah is. This is how you actually gain the taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is also a category of the people about whom Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I love those who are Mottaki those who are conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala the third quality My beloved brothers and sisters is those people who trust in Allah subhanaw taala I mean, literally, honestly, very simple, who is better to be able to trust in better than Allah

00:19:07--> 00:19:59

subhanho wa Taala who is there in the creation, you know, better than Allah subhanaw taala when he himself is the creator of everything. So the wise men are those who rely on the one who is the creator of the entire creation, isn't it? And that is why to be awesome, you need to trust in Allah subhanaw taala and trusting Allah means that you do your part and then you rely on Allah subhanho wa Taala so Muslim, he plays his role to the best of his abilities. He uses his strength, he uses his resources, he uses every form of energy to drive that matter through and then he rely on Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:20:00--> 00:20:22

That's the reason the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he states very beautifully, very beautifully. He said trust in Allah Subhana Allah, but tie Oh camel, so you trust Allah but you have to do what you have to tie your camel. So you need to play your part and trust Allah and that is again, a category of the people who Allah subhanaw taala loves the most.

00:20:23--> 00:20:42

The fourth quality of the awesome youth is be the best in character. There is nothing that is more heavier on the scales of the good deeds of the believer, than the good character, Allahu Akbar, on the day of judgment, my beloved brothers

00:20:45--> 00:21:35

and sisters, the greatest act of goodness, the beautiful D that is going to be heavier on our scales is good character. So never, ever leave the good character but always live, good character, carry your image, as I said, you and me are Muslims, and we are carrying the brand of Islam, Allah Akbar, and that this brand reflects the best of luck as we see in the life of the prophets and the level and he says he being the best mould of character, and we need to follow the same in our lives in Subhan. Allah also an honor, pleasure and privilege for those who have good character are those people who will be the nearest and dearest to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam on the Day of Judgment.

00:21:36--> 00:22:19

The fifth quality is be just come what may justice has to be established. Allah subhanaw taala says in Sudan, South Sudan number four is number 135 Yara Johan Medina amanu or you who believe stand firmly for justice, even if the Justice goes against yourself against your parents, against your kith or kin, your relatives or friends, Justice must prevail. And this is the quality of an awesome youth and an awesome you know, Muslim in general insha Allah the way we perform, you know, an act justly and fairly, the way Allah will raise our ranks in Jannah insha Allah

00:22:21--> 00:22:24

the sixth quality My beloved brothers and sisters,

00:22:25--> 00:23:13

you know order to be awesome is Be patient and Subhan Allah, your awesomeness, your character, your nature, your belief will be tested. When you reflect the quality of your patients. And that is the reason the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said amazed is the matter of the believer, when something good happens to him, he thanks Allah subhanaw taala and there is a good in it. And if there is any calamity befalls on him, he is patient, and that's good for him. Subhan Allah, this is how the behavior of the Muslim and the believer is that he is patient and without patience, there is no Jenna. Without patience, there is no success without patience, there is no salvation without

00:23:13--> 00:24:02

patience there you can never be awesome, in simple words. So we need to be patient in terms of fulfilling the commands of Allah subhanaw taala in terms of abstaining ourselves from that which is wrong in terms of burying ourselves strong and form when there is any calamity, any problem, any issue, any challenge that we face in our lives, we need to submit to Allah subhanaw taala and says God Dora love muszaphar. It is the decree of Allah subhanaw taala and I as a believer must submit to the decree to the fate and to the destiny of Allah subhanho wa Taala because I know my rub will never let me down I know and I trust and I believe that my rub my rub, he will always do that which

00:24:02--> 00:24:04

is good for me. Insha Allah

00:24:05--> 00:24:54

the last quality My beloved brothers and sisters I know we have been waiting for Mashallah the talks from our younger generation, whom we will be inspired with insha Allah, you know the seventh quality is be a good dua, Allahu Akbar, Allah when he says truly Allah loves and mercy noon almasi known are the good doers. They are the people who are the best of the best Subhan Allah and that is the reason they are beloved by Allah subhanaw taala and what is the what is the quantification what is the criteria to be good, you need to be good in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala and when you're good in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala you will be truthful, you will be kind you will be loving

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

you would be forgiving. You would be respectful, you would come be committed in fulfilling your promise.

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

misses, and that is the holistic characteristic of a good doula. And that is the reason Allah subhanaw taala loves him. And that is the reason Allah subhanaw taala will be with him, my beloved brothers and sisters in Islam. These were the qualities of an awesome youth. These are the qualities that we have to possess in our lives in order to be successful in order to be, you know, progressive in order to gain that ultimate goal that we have set at the beginning of this course. And that is to see to have that honor that pleasure of seeing Allah subhanho wa Taala in the highest levels of Jana, in the company of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my beloved brothers and sisters, we

00:25:52--> 00:26:30

ask Allah subhana wa Taala nothing but excellence, excellence in dunya. And in an era not just here, but in the Asha as well. And that is how our ambitions our aspirations must be. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless the organizers We ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless each one of you for being with us.
