mahamadou Anna Sally Ella Solihull Corinne abyad for all the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, rubbish rollease, Saudi Arabia Sally Emily botlane Agata melissani of Coco Lee, Koli, probenecid, nerima, assalamu, alaikum, warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu, my dear brothers and sisters, this is Bella Han, I am serving as an assistant professor of psychology at Islamic online university.

00:00:52--> 00:01:08

And I'm here with a topic peace through prayers. But before we start, I will request everyone to please turn off everything that might distract you from learning whatever you're learning in our time together.

00:01:09--> 00:01:55

Because you know, sometimes what happens is that when you go to a gathering of Ireland, remember there are different categories of people. So there will be people who will attend this webinar from the beginning till the end, but gain nothing. Why? Because there'll be multitasking, listen to the call and Facebooking at the same time or checking their WhatsApp. So they will be listening, and yet not listening. So please, close. Anything that distracts you from listening all the browser browsers, turn off your cell phones. And if you can sit in a distraction free zone, please do so give yourself the gift of being 100% present. But of course, if you are in a timezone where it's

00:01:55--> 00:02:12

time for a fire, and you are in the kitchen, trying to cook your food, and listen at the same time, then it's perfectly fine. And maybe you can also consider listening to the recording, take notes. And some of you would have kids and they'd be running around the house. So it's alright, take it easy.

00:02:14--> 00:02:31

And let them play around and try to focus as much as you can, if you can't took it. But whatever the case may be, don't be among those who come to the gatherings of empty handed and leave empty handed, that it transformed your life in one way or the other.

00:02:32--> 00:03:22

Secondly, please have a pen have a pen and a paper to take notes. Notes taking help you immensely in focusing on what's being taught. Right. So and I'd also encourage you to take notes, because if you want to make this knowledge as a criteria for yourself, and you want your children and your grandchildren, and great grandchildren to read what you wrote on June 17 2017, please write these take notes. And maybe you can consider teaching the same stuff in your local Masjid or any madrasa or wherever it is possible for you. So inshallah that was just a reminder, how's your Ramadan going? If you're a fast, isn't it? So I hope that since it's the last part last extra, you all are, you

00:03:22--> 00:03:41

know, set and buckle up. And I pray that Allah, Allah made this Ramadan, a source of expiation of our sins, I mean, inshallah. So, my dear brothers and sisters, before I get into the topic, I would invite you to take a moment and think about your intentions,

00:03:43--> 00:04:05

his intentions, they're really, really powerful. And this is the reason that Mr. mahadi started his book with these intentions, because they are powerful, right? So I will invite you to think, why are you here on this call for Hussein? Why will you act upon whatever you're learning here, who's sick

00:04:06--> 00:04:28

and tell you one thing, you know, doing a good deed is easy. It's still easy, but protecting your good deed once you have done it. That's difficult. So what happens is that, for example, deeply tahajud right, and then we wake up in the morning and tell everyone that oh, you know, I'm so sleepy today. Because I offered that to

00:04:30--> 00:04:40

us, all the reward is gone. You see shaytan he is so active, that he doesn't sit idle, even when we have done something good.

00:04:41--> 00:04:55

He tries his best to make us waste our good deeds with our own hands by showing off. So, again, my question is, why are you here on this call for me, for yourself for Allah, what intention?

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

My dear brothers and sisters if it's anything other than Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:14

leisure, that is the time to renew it. Otherwise, the content of this webinar will not help you. You can do all the good deeds in the world. But if they are not done for the sake of Allah, they will be a waste on the Day of Judgment.

00:05:16--> 00:06:01

All right, inshallah, let's get into business, peace through prayers. And just let me give you a bit of overview, and then we'll get into the details. So a nagging reminder, please take notes. So I'll give you five bullet points, right, five points, and five segments of this webinar, basically. So the first one is that I'll be giving a brief introduction of the topic. Right. The second point is that we've talked a bit about the importance of later other from authentic bodies. And then we'll take a moment, this is a third point. Now we'll take a moment to define who they actually are, what our purposes, why are we here in this world. And number fourth point,

00:06:03--> 00:06:34

you know, we'll try to connect all these dots and see how all these things are related to each other. And we'll dive into some content which inshallah will help you with respect to the laser cutter and making guy and building your connection with the last panel dialog, and finding peace and serenity in your life. And finally, we'll learn how to plan these last 10 nice but powerful laws written and ready in advance, so as to take maximum advantage of these nights insha Allah and and I'll give you a few reminders in the end, and then we'll wind up in sha Allah,

00:06:35--> 00:07:02

I ask Allah subhanaw taala to help me in sha Allah. And as I said, I'll start by giving a brief introduction of the topic, these two prayers, and basically finding this peace in the nights of Ramadan and beyond. So peace through making guys, remember, my dear brothers and sisters, drama is basically our connection with our Lord is a connection with lost power. So the more strong this connection is, the more peace you'll find in your heart.

00:07:03--> 00:07:17

And at this point, I'd invite you to think when the time of acceptance of Tascam whatever time it is, and let's say maybe your friend or someone reminds you, you know, hate me. This is the time of acceptance of

00:07:18--> 00:07:34

what kind of hours do you make? What are you guys like? You know, is it something like all law leads and all Muslims regional class? I mean, don't get me wrong. There's no problem with this, per se. But really, is that all?

00:07:36--> 00:07:42

Or you know, when the time comes, you are totally clueless, you absolutely have no idea what else to make God for?

00:07:43--> 00:08:10

Right? I'll give you an example. To elaborate my point. You know, when people are in love halala do they just say that I love you. And that's it? No, they try to find all the good words in the entire world. To express their emotions, they write long letters, emails, these days, they send you know Tex guides, trying to be innovative and expressing their love. Why?

00:08:11--> 00:08:36

Because they want to strengthen their bond. They want to connect and connect over and over again. Similarly, when you make to Allah subhanaw taala meticulously asking for everything in great detail. you strengthen your bond with Allah, you establish the connection, you find peace and serenity. It is as if you have you know, poured your heart in front of Allah subhanaw taala. And now your Lord is there to take care of,

00:08:38--> 00:08:45

you know, whatever troubles you have. And this is the reason my dear brothers and sisters that have other companions that are the allowed item.

00:08:46--> 00:08:58

Even when there was a problem with a shoelace, or sandal strap did ask Allah Tell me Darfur it and this is one of the most profound strategies to build your relationship with loss of power.

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

Right. So this is the topic about

00:09:02--> 00:09:31

the inshallah now we'll elaborate point number two, and then inshallah, don't worry, we'll connect the dots. A second focus is Laila the other the importance of Laila the other from different bodies. So if Nigeria rates that there was a man from many stripes, who used to spend the night in prayer, then he would find the enemy in the way of Allah during the day, until the evening, and he did this for 1000 months. And then this widow was living

00:09:33--> 00:09:33

with surah.

00:09:35--> 00:09:41

In Angela, who feel a little bit early, we sent it down in the night of Allah.

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

And what can make you know, what is the night of the night of degree is better than 1000 months, the angels and the Spirit descended and by permission of the Lord for every matter. Peace it isn't until the emergence of dawn

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

So, this night is better than 1000 months

00:10:04--> 00:10:47

you know that worshipping in this night or any other act, it is better than that actions of that man of Bani Israel actually the lifespan of earlier people was more than ours and our lifespan is too short to do as many good deeds as earlier people did. So, laser father is actually a gift of a last pantalla to us. So that you know, we can reach the same level of reward as earlier people did. And you know, you see that some of the FRC and interpretation says that 1000 is just symbolic and I respect this opinion but even if he takes 1000 in the literal number and do some math, I think there should be no harm in it right? So 1000 months if you see how many years 83.3 years or 30,000 days

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

80,000 days upon Allah

00:10:53--> 00:11:38

I have a question. Is there any organization on earth that pays you for 82 years if you work only for a night? Not even 24 hours just a night? No, my dear brothers and sisters only Allah does. Only only their mother Amanda Rahim. Only heaters. How can we afford to miss the blessings of this nice My dear brothers and sisters? How can you afford to roam around party or go to the market and do stuff that doesn't benefit us? How can be who knows if you're able to see the next Ramadan or not? Who knows? Let's think the advantage right now in sha Allah is you know, it's just like someone drops a blank cheque at your doorstep. And you're free to write whatever amount you want. Once you

00:11:38--> 00:12:10

stand up and take the cheque and get it cashed, won't you you will is a dime for making golf or anything asking for anything and this is the time to elevate or that idea in general work for Jenna generate this is a time to strive for something better you know in dunya if you ask someone would you like to shift to a better house than yours? A house see which is in front of the beach from where you can see awesome sunrise and it's really big with a garden in front of it and so on. So who will say no? Who will say no?

00:12:12--> 00:12:27

No one everyone would want to have a better house No matter how beautiful their garden tells us. Right? Laila The color is giving us an opportunity to get a better home inshallah inshallah, just by worshipping in that one night.

00:12:28--> 00:12:54

All right, I hope I made the point clear. So inshallah Allah Subhana, Allah allow us to take maximum advantage of that night by worshiping him to our fullest capacity. So some more of these on the benefits of this night. So, Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, that whoever stood in prayer on the night of the other in faith and hope for a reward from Allah, He will have all of his previous sins forgiven.

00:12:55--> 00:13:12

So my dear brothers and sisters, I will give you a moment to think about your sins. I don't know about you, but I have many, I have many since I'm such a simple person. And I really, really want to be forgiven and don't want to miss any opportunity that Allah is promising to forgive my sins.

00:13:13--> 00:13:25

I share the latona and how she reported that when the last 10 days of Ramadan started, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would tighten his desire and he would stay away from having marital relationship.

00:13:26--> 00:14:13

And then he spent the whole night awake and wake up his family as well. And then she said that Alas, messenger used to exert more in worship on the last 10 nights then on the other night, so this was Laila the other hand, I hope that after listening to these ladies, inshallah, we will focus on these nights and not wasted in any way. And this brings me to the third point of discussion. And this is one of my favorite points and, and whenever I give a, I'm given a chance to speak, I just love to touch upon this topic. And this is purpose, why am I here in this word, and, of course, I'll just briefly touch upon this topic of purpose, and inshallah, this is a reminder, and we can always do it

00:14:13--> 00:14:38

later in detail, inshallah. So the last purpose is that every human being is born in this world for a purpose, whether we know it or not. When you fulfill this purpose, we feel fulfilled and peaceful. So remember, there are two kinds of people in this world, right? One that follow the cycle of coming to this world, getting a degree hunting a job, getting married, having children retire and die.

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

And then there's another category of people who do all these amazing things, but they also play their part in this world. Can you think about anyone who did so the who did this but the purchase I'm talking about? And I'm sure you can. So these people, they stepped out of their comfort zone, to help others and to make a difference in the lives of people right?

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

Trust me, my dear brothers and sisters, I'm not bragging or anything, but I'm just completely being honest to you that this is the last extra. And I just wanted to be alone with my Ramadan goals and focus and do my bother and do nothing else. But trust me I couldn't get, I couldn't get the peace I was looking for I was restless. Why? Because my purpose, it demands me to convey what I know to you. Right? I love teaching teaching is my purpose. And if I don't do it, I'll go crazy. So whatever our purpose is, if you're not serving that purpose, that then you know, no matter what we do, how much we earn, how many houses we have, how many cars we own, how often do we go out for the holidays,

00:15:45--> 00:15:53

nothing and absolutely nothing will bring peace in our lives. Nothing will make us feel fulfilled.

00:15:54--> 00:16:18

Only serving this purpose makes us happy and makes us feel fulfilled. And remember when I say Who are we, by definition, we are the deputy of Allah. Allah says in Surah Baqarah with Allah rabuka lil mela ekati in New Jerusalem fille de halifa only despite is relevant at the moment. So when you Lord say to the angels, indeed, I will make upon the earth at deputy.

00:16:19--> 00:17:01

And when we define ourselves, our roles, we must not forget that we as being the deputy of Allah, we also have some responsibilities, right? Yes, we have some major responsibilities as mothers, sisters, fathers, students, professionals, but you also have major responsibilities as being the halifa of Allah, and what's that responsibility to convey the word of Allah, to convey the message of Allah, to the people, in whatever way we can write whatever our expertise is, is we have to use that to convey the message of Allah to his people. So if I'm a designer, if I'm a speaker, if I'm a teacher, whatever my expertise may be, right, I have to use it, to convey the message of a lot of

00:17:01--> 00:17:45

the people of Allah, right. And now and chum 2.4, and try to connect all these dots together, right? When we look at sudah quarter, my dear brothers and sisters, the phrase with every matter, the angels and the Spirit descend their end by permission of their Lord, for every matter. This means that during this night matters of life and death, the provision and the source of matter for every human being, they are decided during this night, or they are handed over to the angels for the implementation, right, so late at night, when lost pantalla hands was a major decision to the angels. How much life should you get? You know, do the angels have to take your soul away this year?

00:17:45--> 00:18:28

Or do you have a few more years to go? Should your risk be increased or decreased? You know, what else should happen in your life. So this is the night when the plans for your year to come ahead is handed over to the angels. So this is the perfect time for you to plan your next year and put your file put your keys in front of Allah in the form of da and get it stamped. Right. And inshallah here we're going to learn how to do that. So yes, we have to do the cayambe we have to do the worship, we also have to move a step forward, plan our next year and put our case forward will last panel data in the form of class this night, inshallah to make this plan a reality. So let's see, how are we

00:18:28--> 00:18:41

going to do that here inshallah. I will divide this into four simple. I'll divide point four into further steps, right, simple steps to follow inshallah. So step one.

00:18:42--> 00:18:50

So what I want you to do is to ask yourself an important questions. What do I want in the next year of my life?

00:18:51--> 00:18:52

What am I looking for?

00:18:53--> 00:18:55

What changes to I want to make?

00:18:56--> 00:19:22

What do I want to add? What do I want to exclude? Remember, what happens is that we do not get what we want. Because we do not know what we want. No, usually it happens I'm doing seminar somewhere, I'm doing workshop, I'm doing webinars and ask people, you know, what do you want and they are like, they have no clue. As sisters, you know, what kind of husband you want. And you say, I want a good husband and what a good husband is like,

00:19:23--> 00:19:30

he's good is scary. Oh, come on. You need to define you need to know what you want. Because, you know,

00:19:32--> 00:20:00

knowing you, what you want is the first step in getting what you want. I'll repeat that knowing what you want is the first step in getting what you want. So the first step is, you know, ask yourself, What do I want? And the step two is identify different areas of life. You know, these areas can be your health, your relationships, learning growth, spirituality, finance, productivity, influence, contribution, you know, whatever and when I say contribution, it means your

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

role as being the deputy of Allah, your role as being the deputy of Allah. And step three is to define your vision for each of these areas.

00:20:12--> 00:20:29

You know, let's say for any, for example, learning and growth, ask yourself, what's my vision? For five years, when I think about my learning and growth, you know, what was my goal was? What's my vision? Where do I want to see myself in five years? So for example, I want to have my PhD in psychology,

00:20:31--> 00:21:11

then what am I going to do? I'm just going to break it down to one year plan, what can I do in the next year to make this vision a reality? Maybe I need to get admission in a university or write more research papers, whatever the case may be. So for every area of your life, ask yourself the same question, what's my vision? Where do I want to see myself in five years, I'm saying five years, because you know, more than that, well, Allahu Allah, but just five is fine. If you want to, you know, do it for 10 years, 15 years? Sure, go ahead, by all means, but what I do is I do it for five years, and I break it down to one year plan. And when I can, what I just focus on the fact that what

00:21:11--> 00:21:51

can I do in the next year to make it a reality? Right, and if you can further break it down into months, then excellent. Write it, it really helps you to focus and the deeper you go, the better it is. So let's say next year is relationships, I want to have a very loving relationship with my husband, Okay, first define what a loving relationship is, and what can you actually do next year to strengthen the bond with your husband, maybe you can have a date night out, you know, every weekend or read together, eat together, whatever it is for you. Or I want to strengthen my relationship with my child, or my mom in law, my penance by the same formula, right? Next is health. I want to lose.

00:21:52--> 00:22:11

You know, I want to lose 30 pounds, see, break it down? How much you know, in a month? And what do you need to do to lose those 30 pounds, join a gym or spend some extra 15 minutes on a treadmill? or do some crunches or whatever suits you break it down to some actionable plan, actionable steps,

00:22:12--> 00:22:52

or see its finance. So remember, your risk has been decided. Or the matter of your risk is being handed over to the angels? So ask yourself, How much do you want to earn this year? So for example, I'm looking for $5,000 per month, okay? What will you do to earn those $5,000? How can you make it in a halabi? Right? Or if you're a small business owner, you're a coach or you know, you're you're someone with a message, and you want to reach out to more people ask yourself, how many people do I want to reach this year? What's my plan for reaching out to more people? Right? And of course, the most important thing is your purpose. Right? And that's why I touched upon the purpose bar just a

00:22:52--> 00:23:37

while ago. My purpose is contribution. As a deputy for law my purpose is to make difference in the lives of people and this is very important to me, as a as a deputy of Allah. I want to spread the message of my Deen to let's say, for example, 1000 people this year, great, how many people per month? How have I decided to do it? What my what's my plan of action? Which medium Am I going to use to reach those people right? Or see our homeschooling mother I want my five year old to cover the syllabus of say kg to or memorize these many surah and Quran from Quran or you know, develop these many habits. just list them all down. And that's that's how you plan your next year. meticulously

00:23:37--> 00:23:44

Think about your children. Think about your marriage, about your studies about anything and everything and ask yourself the same question.

00:23:46--> 00:24:31

And the next step is that now it's the night of Ramadan, you're praying you're doing about that and you are putting your file in front of Allah in the form of us make dua for every single of these a sister the last part that I want to lose three pounds. And you know, I want to join a gym, please facilitate. Um, you know, please make it make sure somehow make all these things possible for me or I want to earn this much and you know, whatever your plan is just a last panel with Allah make them. Remember in a hadith we learned that nothing can change the Divine Decree etc. Nothing can change the Divine Decree except Ah, so this is a time for you to make crazy dogs, right? And then, when you

00:24:31--> 00:24:44

have planned every detail of your year to the best of your ability, you're going to pick the Atlas panthella to make it a reality. Why am I seeing this again, because no matter how incredibly we plan, no matter how meticulously we plan,

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

unless we get an okie signal from Allah subhanaw taala nothing is going to work for us. Nothing will become a reality. To now sit down, make lots and lots and lots of us right and when it comes to

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

Does I'll share a few strategies to make your class powerful, meaningful, and something that really excites you know. So what are some of the ways to make your class meaningful? First, is that something that I say, you know, having a strong, why? Having a very strong reason? Why are you making this law? You know, why do you want something you're asking for?

00:25:25--> 00:25:58

And I'll give you a simple example of the way Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he prayed in butter. That's my super favorite, right? So you know, the Battle of butter 313 Muslims, one versus 1000 well equipped men, and any logical mind will say, flat victory for the machine. And this is no competition. And now we see that what the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam is making he's saying or Allah, if these handful Muslims die today, there will be no one to worship you till the Day of Judgment.

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

Prophet salallahu Salam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he has a very strong and powerful why why should Allah give victory to these 313 people

00:26:12--> 00:26:20

in making this guy he's actually putting the share of ally in the store right? So no one will be there to take your name till the Day of Judgment

00:26:21--> 00:27:04

and this is one of the things that I absolutely love about this having a strong why having a strong reason why should I give you the victory because this is this this is my reason. Remember my user buttons and sisters a love and answer you ask whether you have a strong why or not but when you do have a strong reason a very solid reason you know your dogs become powerful you know so make your dogs powerful by having a strong reason by putting on a shirt. Do you want a child Okay great. Why should I give you a child? Oh Allah I will make him a die and he will uphold your system you want a better car? Why Oh Allah I want to you know die a drive to my charity center I want to give a right

00:27:04--> 00:27:49

to orphan kids every Sunday whatever the reason is, have a strong why include a strong buy in your why isn't the reason in your class and inshallah you will see that you'll enjoy making those those are will become meaningful. And I'm seeing it again and again My dear brothers and sisters alone instead answer your prayer if you do not, you know if you do not have a good why and that's not a need. We are in need. You know putting his share makes our the stronger. Allah Spano Allah says in the Quran, yeah, you have NASA uncommon for para la la, la la, la la vanille. Honey, all men guide you are those in need of Allah, by Allah, Allah. Allah is free of any need, and he's praiseworthy,

00:27:50--> 00:28:08

too. We are in need, we need a strong why. So for example, you are planning to lose weight, why should I help you? Oh, Allah, I want to have more energy to worship you. You want a bigger house? Why? What should we reason? Well, I'll spare room for the current classes, or an approval your system in my new house.

00:28:10--> 00:28:46

And also editing engine here. Please note that it's not making a while or taking an old you know, for example, people do this all the time, you know, or law do such and such thing for me and I'll offer to another or you know, I'll do some charity or all if you give me a new house, I'll feed 100 people know this, this is not this type of stuff, this type of stuff. It is not encouraged when I'm what I'm seeing is different is making your intention directed to the purpose Allah sent you down for, it's about doing everything for the sake of Allah even making doors, right? It's about the fact that even then you're asking for something in this dunya you're making sure that you are rewarded

00:28:46--> 00:28:54

for this and the next one as well. So for example, if you get a big house Alhamdulillah Good for you. But maybe you will be happier in this world.

00:28:55--> 00:29:37

I mean, maybe you don't, you can take the advantage of draw this draw in the next word. If you start current losses in that new house as well. Right, this is going to reward you in the next next world as well. If you if you do lose some weight, fine, you look good, but at the same time, you will have more energy to serve a last name. More energetically, you'll pray more energetically you'll run around you know conducting Holocaust without getting tired, you'll stand in long gamma lane. So you see these things are connecting and how making dua to Allah in and of itself can be a source of peace and serenity and a reward in your life. And I'll give you another example. Look at the

00:29:37--> 00:29:59

darkness Allah slam the door that I just recited before the beginning of this webinar. He said rubbish shortly surgery recently on de Wallen, Odetta. melissani by Why, yes, oh, golly, spring that open for me, my chest, untie the knot from my tongue. Why? Why should I do this Formosa so that when he goes to convey

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

last message to put on, he speaks eloquently and alas message is being conveyed properly. You know, so in this case if you have any physical deformity,

00:30:11--> 00:30:53

my dear brothers and sisters, you know, Allah, Allah will bless you Allah can remove this difficulty even if you make simple law that Allah fix my problem, whatever the problem is, but why not make it more powerful by making it you know, by making smarter so as to benefit from your doors in this world and the next world as well. So remember robina, Athena for dunya has an awful FET has Anna, okay, now that our Lord, give us good in this world, and good in the Hereafter, and protect us from the torment of hellfire. So just do not focus on this dunya dunya dunya. Don't forget together the Hassan out of the next world as well. What else do you want? financial independence? Great. So

00:30:53--> 00:31:36

what's the last year? And this reminds me of a very good, decent, shall I read it out for you? A Buddha. me I love you peace with him. He reported that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that while a man was walking through a barren land, he heard a voice coming out of a cloud saying, irrigate the garden of so and so. Their pond, the cloud drifted in a certain direction, and discharged its water over a rocky plane. The stream less flowed into a channel. This man followed the channel until it reached a garden. And he saw the owner of the garden standing in his center, working with his speed spreading the water.

00:31:37--> 00:31:48

He asked him all slave of Allah, what is your name? He told him that you know, this, and this is my name, which was the same that he heard from the cloud.

00:31:49--> 00:32:33

The owner of the garden asked him all slave of Allah, why did you ask my name? He replied, I heard a voice from a cloud, which boy down this water saying, irrigate the garden of science. So I would like to know, what do you do? What do you do with it? He said, Now that you have asked me, I'll tell you, I estimate the produce of the garden and distribute one third of it in charity. I spend one third on myself and my family and invest one third back into the garden. Charity in the path of Allah, Allah shear. And this reminds me of another story. I was one counseling, you know, the informal kind of counseling a brother, who was hunting a decent job for years. And yes, of course, I

00:32:33--> 00:32:47

know. You'd be thinking that I don't counsel men, yes, I do not cancel men. He was my Muslim. So no worries. So about for many things that we discussed. And I suggested him and asked him, you know, give me a good reason. Why should I give you a job?

00:32:48--> 00:32:49

You know,

00:32:50--> 00:33:35

will you will you set a small percentage for allowed of your salary? And he said, Okay, I'll set you know, 5% of my salary for him, any, whatever I earn, I will give 5% to alas people every month. in martial law, he got the job in a month or so, you know, I forgot how soon but quite soon, he had been struggling for years. And that's, you know, and that's he, he got the job in no time, as compared to the years he had been struggling. But and, and that's just one story. Right? And that there are many, many stories of the same story. Okay, that actually brings me to the next part, which I call the crazy dogs, make some crazy dogs, what I have discussed now is what I call the

00:33:35--> 00:33:37

realistic aspect of making da right.

00:33:39--> 00:34:25

So you're making dials, you are planning, setting milestones and focusing, which is all very important. But then, you know, there are other kinds of doors that are, you know, that apparently apparently seem to really impossible to be accepted to be answered. You cannot set milestones or you do not know how is it going to happen. But I just invite you to make off with that as well. Regardless of the how, for example, you want to leave some mine bookbindings at Kgi you have to after you and you do not know how you're going to do that. Say you want to build a hospital in an area which lacks medical facility and you have no idea where to begin from make garlic crazy. I

00:34:25--> 00:34:59

don't know how am I going to do it Oh Allah, but I know you can do it for me. So please help me out. Show me how to do it. You know, give me people who can assist me. Or maybe you want to make your son that amount of much, much better than LP but you have no clue again where to begin from maker just ask Allah to show you the steps. Or maybe you are 40 plus in heaven conceived a child here. And you know the world is telling you that you have no hope. I am telling you that you have all the hope in the word. Allah give Ibrahim and Zachary LS LS

00:35:00--> 00:35:27

Sons when they were too old to have kids, and you know, both of them were surprised so much so that they couldn't believe it. So don't lose hope in their mouth, Allah, Allah strama will be there for you. But remember that you will have to make that first you will have to do your you will have to take the first step. just appreciate the Immaculate confidence. The Coriolis alarm he had in the mercy of Allah He took the first step remember,

00:35:28--> 00:36:13

even though he knew that he was too old to have a baby, he also knew that his wife was barren, yet he made a draw for the impossible. Why? Why do you think he did that? Simple because something that is impossible for you. And something that is impossible for me is not impossible for him. It's not impossible for Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's the kind of conviction and confidence and faith Allah expects from his slaves. And then he blesses him with what he can never expect to become a reality. Bring the passion, conviction, confidence and faith back in your laws by remembering that the one who can give a child to that area, in his old age from a barren woman can do anything for you.

00:36:14--> 00:36:58

Something that seems totally impossible to you. So what impossible Do you want to happen in your life right now what's impossible that you are making the offer and share the story with you, you know, this is a story of a young sister, she attended one of my courses, and after the course ended, she sent me the story. doctors had told her that she cannot conceive a child nationally. And let's see what happens then. So doctors told her that she could not conceive a child naturally and inshallah we'll see what happens. It's a long story, but I'll summarize it for you inshallah, and I'll skip unnecessary, you know, details to maintain decency. So the sister says, ever since I was

00:36:58--> 00:37:07

very young, I love children. And as a teenager, I had this in my mind that when I will get married, I will have my own children in no time.

00:37:09--> 00:37:43

This idea was so fixed in my mind that I knew for sure that I will have a baby within a year of my marriage. Okay, so I'll skip a few details here. A few months after my marriage, I came to know that I suffer from a gynecological condition in which cells from the lining of uterus appear and flourish outside the uterine cavity. And it is one of the reasons of infertility in women. My doctors very clearly and bluntly told me that I could not conceive nationally, and I would need to go through artificial methods such as an IVF which is not only expensive, but

00:37:45--> 00:38:18

a highly taboos matter in my country plus has a success rate of only 40%. So as I had presumed, my parents in law simply refused if IVF and insisted that we tried naturally, why my doctors told me that my tubes are totally blank. So any childless women can understand my pain, I was helpless and you know, what I was praying for, I was praying that I could soon have an IVF and it should be successful. When I didn't realize that from Allah could I could ask for something bigger and better.

00:38:19--> 00:38:58

So one fine day my team had my team here from my counseling team told me of the course empower Muslim I'm Barbara Muslim has a course that I conducted for Islamic online university three years back, and still in the diploma section, if you want, you can have a look at it inshallah. And she was being told that you could join this course and she it would be helpful for her. So just cutting the long story short here, the so that she talks about the next session, the next session, and then Barbara muslima course it was about belief system, you know, who we put our trust first and our lives. This lecture was a turning point for me, I used to think that doctors can cure me and all I

00:38:58--> 00:39:37

needed was to pray to Allah subhanaw taala, that my treating treatments turns out successful, only realizing, after listening to this lecture that once we put our trust in Allah and leave our matters to him, he will give us the best solution. So after listening to that lecture, I changed my prayers. And I used to ask a lot for an offspring through national matters. I left my medicine, as the doctors prescribe me ocps, which were very important for my treatment, but tend to suppress ovulation. I kept on praying until I noticed that, okay, let's give the few details here. And then that you took a pregnancy test and found that the results were positive. So she was so excited that

00:39:37--> 00:39:49

she was very amazed. And she says that I never forget to thank Allah that I put my trust in Him and He blessed me with America. My trust and faith in Allah has got stronger, and I pray to him that should never get down.

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

The story still gives me goosebumps after you know, all these years and so you know, I define realistic guys as advice for which you

00:40:00--> 00:40:42

Have an action plan. And this is very important planning and focusing. But then there's another definition. I define crazy dollars for which you have no action plan, you have no idea how it will come to. If people hear you making this. They'll call you crazy. Just imagine if people heard that cerca de la Sallam making that offer agile work would have the call him but you know, I would say me this door anyway, trust Allah and see how miracles happen. Remember, Allah is the one who even hears the whispers of your hearts and he answers when you we call. Whenever you reach out to him, he answers he still right last mantra says in the Quran, with Sri Lanka, either the enemy for

00:40:42--> 00:41:29

inequality, Eg Buddha did die than Felisa Ji boo Li well you mean to be that Allah whom you should own that when my seven as you or Mohammed, concerning me, indeed I am here. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon me, so let them respond to me by obedience, and believe in me, that they might be guided. Right so once you make that for the impossible, you owe your heart to Allah, you'll enjoy that peace and serenity that cannot be described through the words have unshakable confidence in the fact that you know, when you are making God Allah will bless you. And one of the reasons guys are not accepted my dear brothers and sisters is that although we are

00:41:29--> 00:42:05

making the gas our tongue is moving but you don't have confidence you know, rather than focusing on the might and power and RAM of love, you're focusing on our strength, our sources and our possibilities Remember, you know, such to us which lacked faith and conviction and those that are made with a heedless mind they're hardly answered create these crazy dance the way I told you crazy dogs should have crazy high confidence and alas mercy He will give he will give to you from you don't you can't even imagine

00:42:06--> 00:42:50

right in Shall I hope I have conveyed it already. Another strategy to get p through our that is to attach our last Beautiful Names with our doors. So Allah says in the Quran that for Allah the beautiful name so call him with those beautiful names with those beautiful attributes jarosik increase matters can help me to earn $5,000 a month yada yada see your earth as soon as he gives me a you know give me a new house on this earth Yaba have blessed me with righteous by shine and so on. So attach the attributes of Allah the names of Allah with your doors and on right is one of the very important dos to me this night on a little closer is what is what Prophet sallallahu Sallam Tata

00:42:50--> 00:43:35

inshallah de la de La Nina and what was that? allow my inner Calhoun karimun. To Him will Franklin me that all law you are the one who grants pardon for this and loves forgiving, so forgive me. And finally, this pretty much brings me to the end of the webinar with a few final reminders. And out of these reminders first being forgiveness, forgiveness, I urge you to forgive others. When you forgive others you have no idea My dear dear brothers and sisters, you liberate yourself. You know just you know keeping this grudges and heart is just like drinking poison and expecting the other person of person to die. You know, I know whatever they have done to you is sad and it's bad. I know it hurts

00:43:35--> 00:43:49

and it hurts really bad. But let cool off it let go of it for the sake of Allah smart Allah says in the Quran, and let them burn in over an overlook. Would you not like that Allah should forgive you and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

00:43:50--> 00:44:33

We have many cents my my dear brothers and sisters, we have many sins but we still want a lot of forgive them all. So we should also have the courage to forgive the sins of others which are way less than our sins in front of ALLAH forgive others let go you will benefit your own self inshallah. Another reminder is that I address and address those people who do not feel Ramadan you know, or the blessings or the little quarter or whatever the case may be mildly of feeling Ramadan is making lots and lots of doors when I'm making the I feel Ramadan and I hope it works for you to inshallah dies again a connection between you and Allah when this connection breaks you do not feel anything you do

00:44:33--> 00:44:59

not feel the blessing of Ramadan you just don't feel like getting from your bed and going and making widow and doing a bother. So just make lots and lots of go unused. You'll see that this connection is reestablished and you would really be able to enjoy the nights inshallah the nights of the night the last 10 nights of Ramadan. You know, after this, this webinar, I just urge you I just request you to jump off your bed. See how do Billahi min ash shaytani regime allowed

00:45:00--> 00:45:23

Right go to bathroom make will do and say enough is enough, I am going to kill this procrastination, I'm going to get this depression or whatever it is for you. And I'm just going to put my utmost effort in taking the maximum advantage of these last 10 nights, right? Alas, enough is enough. And finally, finally, I'm just trying to wind it up. But I have so much this year that I just cannot

00:45:24--> 00:46:02

just get to the conclusion. But just one more point, add a few more points, actually. Okay, so I'm planning planning this night beforehand is really important. All right. So plan your ibadah beforehand, make sure you like you know, from 10 to 90 10pm, alkota, up from 10 to 11pm, el distrito, for and from 11 to 1130 is my drive time. And this should include the realistic dogs are crazy dogs are from Miranda from Santa, it's a combination of all those dogs. So plan that night beforehand. Because if you'll start figuring out what to do on that night, and it might be you know, a waste of a lot of your time. So your timetable should be ready. And if you can have an

00:46:02--> 00:46:33

accountability buddy, if you can pair up with someone excellent, nothing that that didn't, that she will not use, she'll not let you sleep, and you will not let her doze off. So if you're not physically close to each other, you know, keep in touch well, Whatsapp or any other messaging service is really helps a lot to have someone as your buddy. And finally, please remember things happen. Things happen, you plan and a plan. So don't beat yourself up if you can't do everything that you have planned.

00:46:35--> 00:47:23

You know, what if you want to play online in May GYN offer an offer but you have a bunch of kids to take care of what if you work in the morning? What if you have some health conditions maybe or what if you have sick parents to take care of you know, if you have a bedridden mother in law, maybe I can imagine how difficult things can be for most of us, right most of us do not have the luxury of just sitting on masala for like, the whole night and focus right? So and what if you start having menses, I suggest except it you plan and Allah plan and Allah is the best planner, if you start fighting it, it means that you are not accepting alas Master Plan, which is way better for you than

00:47:23--> 00:48:03

your own plan. So take it easy, and again, focus on what you can do rather than what you cannot. Because what you focus on it expands what you focus on it really really expands. So if you focus on, you know, things that you are not doing, you'll end up not doing what you can do. I hope it makes sense, right? So please see what you're focusing on. So even if you have not done anything substantial yet, please don't beat yourself up You still have time Ramadan is not over yet. This is a reason you know why Allah brought you here to this call. And that's why I suggest just when this webinar ends just get up, make will do and Holly has done you already you are a soldier, you're

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

gonna fight it, you're gonna crush it inshallah. And something that I put as my Facebook status in the morning and I then read it out for you because you know, I am not sure if I can really give words to it. The thing is that our circumstances are a part of the master plan designed by a planner, who is the best of all planners, and we will be rewarded based on the test we are going through. No one ever in the history of mankind has been given any hiring is all success without being tested. You name it. accepting our circumstances is just like baking peace for the fact that the one who has chosen us for this test knows better and we trust his knowledge. And while our to do

00:48:48--> 00:49:30

list is less than 50% done. Remember that there's another list where IDs are being recorded. When you do the list had the time for Quran recitation, but you ended up changing the diaper of your baby. Somewhere a check was marked for changing those diapers. And you were awarded when you had blocked the time for Nevada but realize that your mother in law has a fever and you need to do the dishes. Somewhere a check was marked for doing those dishes and you were awarded when you wanted to stand in Minke long PM, but ended up resigning to the quarter because you never needed some immediate help. Remember, somewhere a check was marked and you were rewarded. You see this in any

00:49:30--> 00:49:59

checklist which we sell them off you plant and he planned trust that his to do list for you is better than yours. And make sure that when the opportunity comes you do not fail to get your check mark. Right. And lastly, please don't waste these nights you know hanging out going to the shopping malls, preparing for the eat you know wasting these precious moments and market. Also please do not go to others whom and Ramadan.

00:50:00--> 00:50:36

Less extremely necessary you are destroying there should you will as well it's not a month of chilling and roaming around you know if you must be someone yes then please be our last guest go perform right if you can Don't disturb others yes if they invite you go have a star. And please come back before that, are we because it's it's completely awkward situation for the host when you sit and chat and the host has to go for that are we in the poor guy is regretting calling you for you know, thou I'm biryani and all these things. So you know, again, it's not the month of partying it's the month of focusing connecting with the last panel, Darla, and making something for your alpha.

00:50:36--> 00:51:03

That's all my dear brothers and sisters. Don't forget was a finest time Yemen, Egypt, Syria, Pakistan and the whole Muslim Ummah, in your doors, and I believe that's the least we can do for them. If there was anything good in this webinar, it was from Allah alone. And if I have heard this is either for myself or shaytan May Allah forgive me to kind of go on we'll be having the gun show that lanta and stuff we're going to be late Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
