To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born, is to always remain a child.

00:00:07--> 00:00:55

Because what is the worth of human life unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history. Those were the words of a famous Roman philosopher Marcus totally assists era. By the same logic, we can add that our community which is ignorant of its roots can have no future. And those who oppose the religion of Islam have taken great efforts into obscuring its history from Muslims. Their aim is to ensure that Muslims never revisit their past successes lest they use it as a means of revival for their future. Discovering this concealment comes at a time when every other nation proudly revisits its heritage, its legacies, its heroes. The Muslim nation deserves to

00:00:55--> 00:01:42

celebrate and recall its past glory. Because the Creator of the heavens and the earth was the one who said quantum higher on metal aka digitally nurse you are the best nation which has ever been put forward as an example for mankind. Throughout its history, our OMA has produced individuals who left behind them, or inspiring legacies and accomplishments. This series seeks to shed light on 10 such individuals, each of whom excelled in their commitment to Islam, and their consciousness of the Hereafter, until they were eventually issued a promise of paradise directly by the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and here's the amazing thing. It happened during their very lifetime.

00:01:43--> 00:02:33

This alone marks them out, as having led lives worthy of closer inspection. Who are these 10 remarkable men? The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a while back here is in paradise and Omar is in paradise and also man is in paradise. And Isley is in paradise and Bella is in paradise. And as debatable Irwin is in paradise. Abdur Rahim Allah withouth is in paradise. Sad. Me Waqas is in paradise Saeed is in paradise and Abba OBEDIA YBNL Jarrah is in paradise. The purpose of this series is not to expound upon the full names and the ancestry, the appearances The the intricate details of each of these individuals. It's more so about presenting their lives in a

00:02:33--> 00:02:53

manner which balances between both the knowledge and the action based approaches. Rather than merely disseminating information we aim to present stories, narrations, commentaries, reflections that I hope will ignite a yearning within the hearts of the viewers for reformation and genuine change.

00:02:55--> 00:03:37

One doesn't need to be a student of Islamic knowledge to gain from the series. The only prerequisite is the sincere desire to improve. And so the viewer may be for example, a new Muslim parent seeking to inspire his or her children, a sermon giver on the pulpits of Friday, a teacher of study circles, or simply a simple Muslim like you and I, who feels perhaps somewhat alienated at times, and is estranged from their surroundings. Our intention is for the viewers to walk away from the series understanding that they are neither alone, nor are they an anomaly in their surroundings, even if they are made to feel like that at times,

00:03:38--> 00:04:21

but that you are part of a tremendous legacy, and you are expected by Allah subhanaw taala to be an extension of it, that you are treading a path of greatness marked by those before you. And with this type of empowerment. The viewer should appreciate the need to occupy himself to occupy herself in the same manner as needed. Remembering the Great's of our past is vital, so important, that Allah subhanaw taala reminded the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of the prophets Ibrahim and his heart and Yaqoob and no hunger wouldn't serve a man and a human use of Musa Harun Zakariya. Yeah here Isaiah Ilyas Ismail AL Yes, sir Jonas lute, one after the other.

00:04:22--> 00:04:25

And then he said to him, and this is the fruit of it all.

00:04:26--> 00:04:35

You can levena Had Allah Febi who there who Mahkota those are the ones whom Allah had guided, so follow their guidance.

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

Focusing on these 10 men with particular attention to certain aspects of their lives. It has a number of benefits that I hope to impart. The first is that it should cause a humbling reality check in our lives, one that prevents us from being occupied with the petty matters of life. The monumental efforts of these 10 men will inspire

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

Insha Allah, away from absent mindedness and low aspirations to the heights of activism and individual and collective reclamation in sha Allah. Secondly, it should strengthen the hearts of the already committed Muslims, whose sense of difference at times from the people around them becomes quite emotionally difficult to bear. The feelings of loneliness being a societal outlier. These are tools that Shavon exploit in his bid to break down a committed believer, you are different, you're weird, he will say.

00:05:35--> 00:06:16

And that is why Allah subhanaw taala relate to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Companions at a time when the Muslims were few and they were weak abandoned the stories of the people who came before them. It was a reminder that they were not strange or alone, but they are the greatest of people in existence. Allah said to them during that vulnerable time. We're coolin Nico Swanee, coming and you're also the man with a b2b for each of the stories. We relate to you oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of the news of the messengers so that we give strength to your heart. The lives of these 10 men will serve as a motivational precedent, reminding the viewer that

00:06:16--> 00:06:33

others have suffered as well, that others were considered outcasts as well. And that despite this, they stood dignified, and firm upon their principles. They were eventually given relief, and their promise of Paradise from Allah was honored it came to pass.

00:06:35--> 00:06:46

Lastly, when speaking about the objectives of the series, reflecting on the stories of these 10 individuals will allow us to reconnect our hearts with the inevitable day of reckoning.

00:06:47--> 00:07:07

For this reason, I have endeavored to choose the narrations surrounding these 10 men that I consider to be the most reviving and inspiring, have a genuine shift in aspirations. I take the opportunity to relay key messages within each of these episodes, as rather than serving as a historical account of their lives. I hope that this series

00:07:09--> 00:07:18

will bring about the greater purpose of reminding us of the home of the Hereafter and the way of life required by every Muslim in preparation for it.
