Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:10--> 00:00:19

Alhamdulillah Hera Bella Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Hill Karim. While early he was happy Ultramarine

00:00:20--> 00:00:44

all praises belong to Allah subhanho wa taala. We praise Him, we thank him for countless blessings that He has bestowed on us. We send bees and salutations upon the lust of the prophets, the leader of all the messengers, Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my brothers and sisters.

00:00:46--> 00:00:47

Such a

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

pleasure

00:00:50--> 00:00:52

for having all of you here.

00:00:54--> 00:00:56

Let me start with a question.

00:00:57--> 00:00:58

In the morning,

00:00:59--> 00:01:02

when you entered this hole,

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

it was dark.

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

Right?

00:01:09--> 00:01:12

And you were given torch lights?

00:01:14--> 00:01:16

Perhaps not all but you were given.

00:01:17--> 00:01:18

Imagine

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

there was no torch lights.

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

And it was all dark.

00:01:27--> 00:01:30

Would it be easy for you to find the direction?

00:01:34--> 00:01:38

Exactly like this. In life, we need light.

00:01:40--> 00:01:49

In our life, we need light. And that's exactly my topic is the torchbearers

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

by Allah

00:01:54--> 00:02:01

each one of you are blessed with that light inside you.

00:02:03--> 00:02:08

And remember, there is too much of darkness out there.

00:02:09--> 00:02:16

The objective of this program is that you as individuals,

00:02:17--> 00:02:27

can move into society with the light as torch bearers, as torchbearers, you got to bring light within you,

00:02:28--> 00:02:31

in your homes, in the society

00:02:33--> 00:02:35

and to the humanity at large.

00:02:37--> 00:02:41

And in order to embark this journey of torchbearers

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

as a takeaway, you can,

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

from your,

00:02:49--> 00:02:52

let me share with you the five DS.

00:02:53--> 00:03:00

What is that five? DS, the first D is the direction.

00:03:02--> 00:03:18

Direction is something which we all need. And I know for a fact, no one would argue and agree that we don't need direction in life. In fact, this is so important that Allah, our Creator, our maker,

00:03:19--> 00:03:32

taught us to recite this dua, every single prayer, every single record every single time, it did not see Robin Mr. Thing,

00:03:33--> 00:03:36

guide us to the straight path.

00:03:37--> 00:04:44

And this is something which is really needed my young, beautiful brothers and sisters direction in life, the right direction in life is something which we all need in life as a torchbearer. You need to take the right direction. And subhanAllah our Creator has not left us just by showing the direction but he has also showed us the destination. Which means that torchbearer which is you have to be visionary. You got to be visionary. And visionary is someone who knows his direction, and he knows where he's going to reach. What's his destination? And Allah subhanho wa taala. He says, what Allah Who Yeah, Drew, Isla daar is Salam. Allah calls you, each one of you. Yes, no one is

00:04:44--> 00:04:50

forgotten. Everyone is being called by our Creator, Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

And who is Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth? He is calling you. You. You each one of you

00:05:00--> 00:05:23

Where Illa Doris Salam is calling to the pace of peace. Jana, that's our destination. So we start on the direction. We start navigating from this role, right, all the way to our destination. That's visioning. That's the torchbearer. That's you. So you got to be very clear with your vision

00:05:25--> 00:06:00

that you have to not just read Jana. But the highest levels of Jana witnessing the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala being in the blessed company of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we know for a fact, as youngsters, you have lot of distractions. You have so many deviations, Glamour out their fantasies, so many things are happening all around, there is a big chance that we lose focus. So we got to be remembering this, that a visionary

00:06:01--> 00:07:05

is always focused. And that's the reason Allah but he sent torchbearers starting from Adam Alayhis Salam, up until Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, as the best torchbearer for the entire humanity until eternity. And he says on, say to them, he said, I believe this is my way, this is my direction. This is my path. Adoro il Allah I call people to Allah, Allah by Sierra, upon certainty. So my brothers and sisters, the young minds, you've got to be focused, there are deviations and that's the reason Allah Almighty He reminded us while who who to watch the show you on why in who la Kumar Kumar been, don't follow the footsteps of shape on deviations distractions, stay focused, Y

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

shaped balls.

00:07:08--> 00:07:45

Objective is he is desperate to deviate you. He is there to deviate us. So we got to be focused and find our direction. So this is our direction, that direction, the part of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam The best example for the entire humanity until eternity. So the first D is direction. The second D is the dedication. Dedication is something which demands you and me everyone to be loyal to our maker, our Creator, if somebody gifts you, at the least what would you say to them?

00:07:47--> 00:07:50

Thank you. Allah has given us the gift of life.

00:07:51--> 00:07:54

The gift of life is all about time that we have.

00:07:56--> 00:08:55

My brothers and sisters, if this torch runs out of battery cannot give light. No, it can't. Why? Because it dried up. So our life needs dedication, dedicated to Allah Almighty. And that does not mean that you don't enjoy have fun, you know, entertain yourself you are free to do that. As long as you have the parameters of Islam intact with you in your life. So, dedication is something which demands piety, purity, you know, prayer, patience, all these are the demands of your and my dedication in life in order for us to be torchbearers. torchbearer has a clear direction. That's the first deed. The second deed is very clear that he's dedicated. He's loyal to Allah. And when he is

00:08:55--> 00:09:23

loyal to Allah, He is the best to Allah and his best to the creation of Allah, not just the humans, animals, insects, plants, environment and everything. Right. So dedication is the second, the third D is the discipline. Now I'm not trying to teach you what is discipline you all know about it. You all very well know about it. I just want to give you a reminder

00:09:24--> 00:09:59

that whenever anybody shares with you anything about discipline, don't think that it's a favor, and you know, it's actually your need for you to be successful. You got to be disciplined. You have to know where you're investing your time. You got to be smart enough. Now, let me ask you this question. If you have got power $1,000 $1,000 Only for the entire month to spend. Will you just drop at every step

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

$100 On your way,

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

will you?

00:10:04--> 00:10:26

No way you will be conscious, you will be very, very conscious in spending because he got to understand that I have got only $1,000 My brothers and sisters, you got to be really more conscious in understanding your time is much more valuable than money as we saw in this video.

00:10:27--> 00:11:26

You may get back the money but the time, the minute, the hour, the second that you lost, never ever can you get back, right? So discipline demands that you be attentive in your, in your time, in your affairs in your mindset. The whole lifestyle of a torchbearer is of discipline he actually lives a life of legacy. He's a legend in himself. And I can see that light in each one of you. When we actually know that we have the direction, we have the dedication, and we are disciplined while hamdulillah then the fourth D that is actually very, very important as well is being dutiful, you got to understand we have a duty to deliver my brothers and sisters, let me also remind you, nobody

00:11:28--> 00:12:20

is out there to tell you, you are the best. You don't need any approvals. You don't need any encouragement. You don't need any one to give you bona fide anyone to give you the certificate that you are the best. Why? Do you know why? Because Allah already told you, you couldn't do the mutton or reject learners, you are the best of the people. You're the best of the creation. In fact, you're the best of the best raised for the benefit for the welfare of humanity. So my brothers and sisters, we have the duty to deliver as a torchbearer. We have to bring light within ourselves and enlighten the humanity by passing on this torch this light to the rest of the world. That is beautiful. The

00:12:20--> 00:12:22

last thing that I would like to leave you with

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

let me repeat what's the first thing we talked about?

00:12:28--> 00:12:30

direction the second D

00:12:31--> 00:13:21

dedication, the third D discipline the four D dutiful the fifth D that I'm going to talk to you Lastly, in couple of minutes we'll end is to our my brothers and sisters. We got to understand we are totally dependent on Allah subhanho wa Taala we just can't do a bet without the help of Allah. So we got to ensure that we always make dua to be better and better every single moment. Every single day. We got to ensure that we embark on a journey of torchbearer by the will and the permission and the help of Allah azza wa jal. So dua is something which you always need to keep in mind as a torchbearer that will keep you moving. That's actually the biggest, powerful, strongest

00:13:21--> 00:13:53

fuel that will come into your life and keep you moving with passion, with professionalism. You as torchbearers have to ensure that you move forward in life and give light to the entire humanity. My brothers and sisters, I love you all for the sake of Allah. May Allah Almighty bless you, your parents, your teachers, and the rest of the humanity.
