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

But then,

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

are we productively using them?

00:03:11--> 00:03:12

at an individual level?

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

Are we actually

00:03:17--> 00:03:22

producing the actual results that we are supposed to?

00:03:24--> 00:03:34

It is a time to ask question to our own selves, my brothers and sisters, am I productive for myself and others?

00:03:36--> 00:03:48

understand this, mark my words. The first step of success is knowing your own self. discover yourself.

00:03:49--> 00:04:05

Discover what is your skill, what is your capacity, what is your talent, where you are good at and increase it, improve it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:06--> 00:04:07

productive Muslim

is a person who submits to Allah subhanho wa Taala, who benefits himself and he benefits the oma.

00:04:19--> 00:04:45

And again, in this episode, my dear brothers and sisters, we shall deal with the top 10 ways to become a productive Muslim or to be a productive Muslim. The first way to be a productive Muslim, my brothers and sisters, is to believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala and obey Muhammad peace be upon him.

00:04:47--> 00:04:54

Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah Surah 25 and number one, but after moon

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

and believers, they are the successful people how

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

Why? Because they are the believers, believer in home, believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala. The believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:13--> 00:05:19

who is certain in his belief, he will be productive and a believer

00:05:20--> 00:05:40

in Allah subhanho wa Taala he will follow Muhammad peace be upon him. So Allah subhanaw taala will teach him everything which is productive for himself and for others. And Mohammed Salah allow it you say them in his life, we could find everything that he did was absolutely productive.

00:05:41--> 00:06:00

Muhammad peace be upon him, he did not do any act which is pointless. He did not do any act which is useless. Allah prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was the most productive Muslim. So much so that he benefits himself and benefits the Omar at large.

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

We

00:06:04--> 00:06:32

have to make sure that we need to believe in Allah subhanaw taala with certainty and we need to follow Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him in order to be a productive Muslim. This is the first way to be a productive Muslim, that is to believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala with certainty and to follow Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. The second way

00:06:33--> 00:06:39

to be productive when your brothers and sisters is to focus on Salah.

00:06:40--> 00:07:08

Salah programs you to do good. It is the practical tarbiyah It's a practical training to release productive results. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given this act of rabada right after believing him there is a purpose there is a strong meaning in it. We need to focus on Salah

00:07:10--> 00:07:30

if we are focused on Salah which means that we are regular to Salah we are punctual to Salah we are committed to Salah we are programmed for Salah we prepare for Salah we planned for salah and the understand salah and we understand the purpose of salah

00:07:32--> 00:07:42

and V taikoo we feel huzhou inshallah, that will make you a productive Muslim. Allah Subhana Allah says

00:07:44--> 00:07:47

in suited for carne surah number 25.

00:07:49--> 00:07:57

That indeed, believers they perform salah and again horseshoe in this Allah

00:07:59--> 00:08:18

Allah subhanaw taala has given this beautiful eerie bada Sala to that new focus and be productive. Salah is the direct connection. It's a direct link between you and your Creator between you as a slave

00:08:20--> 00:08:27

and master Allah subhanho wa Taala it's connected, it's the best connecting tool

00:08:29--> 00:09:13

to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala if you are committed, if you have this zeal to focus on Salah, you will be productive in your life productive, so much so that that you will benefit your own self and you will benefit the masses at large a productive Muslim he will always focus on Salah. The third way many brothers and sisters to be productive Muslim is avoid, avoid Wayne talks avoid wasting of time

00:09:14--> 00:09:17

the bulk of the Muslim Ummah,

00:09:18--> 00:09:47

especially the youth are engaged are involved in so useless things, pointless things, meaningless things, fruitless things, that they are engaged in some of the other Wayne talks, they do not utilize the time that is there in their hands. As a result, they lose the productivity. They will never be productive Muslim, if they do not

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

abstain from the vain talks. If they do not make use of their time, they will never be productive Muslim. So we have to make sure my brothers and sisters

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

If we would like to be productive Muslim, we need to make sure that we

00:10:11--> 00:10:34

use our time that we have to be away from the Wayne talks, and speak, that makes which makes sense, speak something which is beneficial, speak something which will help and benefit you and others. And that's how you can be productive Muslim, also

00:10:36--> 00:10:37

make use of time.

00:10:38--> 00:11:39

The time is there in your hand. And we don't know when it will be taken back. Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. He cautioned us, he said, there are two nerima. Near Matan, there are two nerima that people will regret after losing it. Number one is health. And number two is time. Make use of your health and time so that you may become productive, Muslim, mighty brothers and sisters, being productive Muslim is actually the goal that every one of us must have. We cannot be a common lay man. They shouldn't be a key differentiator between us as Muslims and others, we need to be beneficial. We need to be productive, we need to be good in terms of all the things that we do in

00:11:39--> 00:12:03

order to make sure that we leave a good example in front of all the other people so that they may get influenced by just looking at you as a productive Muslim by looking at you, they will be attracted to Islam. And this is this is how my brothers and sisters you and me need to do

00:12:04--> 00:12:07

as a productive Muslim. As a productive Muslim.

00:12:08--> 00:12:59

We have to adopt a way we have to adopt a way in which Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased by us. Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased by us. If Allah subhanaw taala is pleased by us, then we will be done. Because that is what the end goal of a productive Muslim is to please Allah subhana wa tada and that's the reason he believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala he obeys Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he focused on Salah. he strives he strives not to get engaged in vain talks. He's trying to avoid the waste of time. He becomes smart.

00:13:00--> 00:13:15

In order to please Allah subhanho wa Taala he becomes smart and make use of his time. He is smart and he will never engage into the things into the talks which are waiting.
