Now I'm gonna do who initially LR Solihull Kareem, my bad for our older bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, rubbish Raleigh, Saudi Arabia, Sally Emery, WA Helen Okada, Melissa, Annie, oh, golly, Robina xinerama Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. 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 anyone, 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, listening 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 Iftar, and you are in the kitchen, trying to cook your food, and listen at the same time, then it's perfectly fine. Or 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.

00:02:15--> 00:02:31

Let them play around and try to focus as much as you can, if you can't attack it, but whatever the case may be, don't be among those who come to the gatherings of ill empty handed and leave empty handed. Let it transform your life in one way or the other.

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

Secondly, please have a bed and have a pen and 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 please take notes. And maybe you can consider teaching the same stuff in your local masjid or any madrasa or beloved as possible for you. So inshallah that was just a reminder, how's your Ramadan going? If you're fast, isn't it? So, I hope that since it's the last part last extra, you all are, you know,

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

set and buckle up. And I pray that Allah subhanaw taala make this Ramadan, our 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

Using intentions, they're really, really powerful. And this is the reason that Imam Bukhari started his book with these intentions because they are raffle, right? So I would invite you to think, why are you here on this call for Hussein? Why will you act upon whatever you're learning here? Who sake?

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

I'll 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, we pray 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

00:04:29--> 00:04:40

palace, all the reward is gone. UC shaytaan 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

Measure, 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

Alright, 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'll talk a bit about the importance of letter other from authentic Hadees. And then we'll take a moment, this is the third point, we'll take a moment to define who we actually are, what our purpose is, why are we here in this world. And number fourth point,

00:06:03--> 00:06:42

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 a lesser cultural and making dua and building your connection with the last panel dialogue, and finding peace and serenity in your life. And finally, we'll learn how to plan these last 10 Nights, but powerful was written and ready in advance, so as to take maximum advantage of these nights and Sharland. And I'll give you a few reminders in the end, and then we'll wind up in sha Allah, 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

00:06:42--> 00:07:02

peace through prayers, and basically finding the space in the night of Ramadan and beyond. So bistro making guys remember, my dear brothers and sisters do ah, is basically our connection with our Lord is our connection with the last panel with Allah. 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 doors do you make? What are your doors? Like? Is it something like, oh, Allah, please send all Muslims to China? And plus, 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 would estimate go for

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

it 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, texts, guys, trying to be innovative and expressing their love. Why?

00:08:11--> 00:08:37

Because they want to strengthen their bond. They want to connect and connect over and over again. Similarly, when you make dua 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 it.

00:08:38--> 00:08:44

You know, whatever troubles you have. And this is the reason my dear brothers and sisters, their Sahaba the companions that are the Allahu Taala

00:08:46--> 00:09:01

even when there was a problem with a shoelace, or sandal strap did ask Allah they'll make the offer it and this is one of the most profound strategies to build your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala right. So this is the topic about

00:09:03--> 00:09:31

the inshallah now we'll elaborate point number two in Indian Inshallah, don't worry, we'll connect the dots. A second focus is Laila the other the importance of Laila to other from different Hadees. So if Nigeria read that there was a man from an Israel who used to spend the night in prayer, then he would fight the enemy in the way of a lot during the day, until the evening and he did this for 1000 months. And then the sutra was revealed

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

with surah

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

in that Angela Javi, Laila the other Verily, We sent it down in the night of other 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. Bees, 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--> 00:10:45

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 radio people did. So, laser cutter is actually a gift of alas pantalla to us, so that, you know, we can reach the same level of reward as earlier people that and you know, you see there some of the DeviceID and interpretation says that 1000 is just symbolic, and I respect this opinion. But even if we take 1000 and the literal lumber 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

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

30,000 days

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

80,000 The SubhanAllah?

00:10:53--> 00:11:39

I have a question. Is there any organization on earth that pays you for add yours? If you work only for a night? Not even 24 hours? Just a night? No, my dear brothers and sisters, only a ladders. Only only the mother of man Rahim. Only he does. How can we afford to miss the blessings of this nice, my dear brothers and sisters? How can we afford to roam around party or go to the market and do stuff that doesn't benefit us? How can we who knows if you're able to see the next Ramadan or not? Who knows? Let's take the advantage right now in sha Allah as 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 stand up

00:11:39--> 00:12:10

and take the check and get it cashed once you you will, is the time for making dua for anything asking for anything and this is the time to elevate our dollars you and Jana to work for General 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 a 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

One, everyone would want to have a better house no matter how beautiful their garden tells us. Right little color is giving us an opportunity to get a better home in Jana in sha Allah just by worshipping in that one night.

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

All right, I hope I've made the point clear, so insha Allah may Allah Subhana Allah allow us to take maximum advantage of that night by worshiping Him to our fullest capacity. So some more studies on the benefits of this night. So Prophet sallallahu sallam said that whoever stood in prayer on the night of 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 sins, I'm such a sinful person. And I really really want to be forgiven. I don't want to miss any opportunity that Allah is promising to forgive my sins.

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

I shouted Allahu Allah and how she reported that when the last 10 days of Ramadan started, the prophets, Allah loves to tighten his desire, and he would stay away from having marital relationship.

00:13:27--> 00:14:13

And then he spent the whole night awake and wake up his family as well. And then she said that Allah's Messenger used to exert more in worship on the last 10 nights than on the other night. So this was Lila the other hand, I hope that after listening to these Hadees 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, you know, 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

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

always do it later in detail, inshallah. So the last purposes 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 into 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--> 00:15:44

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 want you to be alone with my Ramadan goals and focus and do my Ibadah 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 personal purpose, it demands me to convey what I know to you, right? I love teaching, teaching us my purpose. And if I don't do it, I will go crazy. So whatever our purpose is, if we are not serving that purpose, 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 say

00:15:44--> 00:15:53

holidays, 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 cholera, Boo Khalil mela Ekati in Niger Island, are the Khalifa only this part is relevant at the moment. So when you Lord said to the angels, Indeed, I will make upon the earth a 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, will also have major responsibilities as being the Khalifa 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 Allah to

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 Surah Potter, my dear brothers and sisters, the phrase with every matter, the angels, and the Spirit descended in 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 Leila truecolor, is a night in Las pantalla hands over some major decision to the angels. How much life should you get? You know, do the angels have to take your soul away

00:17:45--> 00:18:27

this year? 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 Cayenne, we have to do the worship, we also have to move a step forward, plan our next year, and put our gifts forward will last Canada in the form of doors this night, inshallah to make this plan a reality. So let's see,

00:18:27--> 00:18:41

how are we going to do that here inshallah. I will divide this into four simple. I mean, I'll divide point four, into further steps, right, simple steps to follow insha Allah so step one.

00:18:43--> 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--> 00:18:55

What am I looking for? What changes do 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 seminars, 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--> 00:19:59

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 you

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--> 00:21:50

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 parents apply the same formula, right? Next is health, I want to

00:21:50--> 00:21:51

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 treadmill or do some crunches or whatever suits you break it down to some actionable plan, actionable steps,

00:22:12--> 00:22:51

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 halal way? 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

00:22:51--> 00:23:36

bar just a while ago. My purpose is contribution. As a deputy of Allah, my purpose is to make difference in the lives of people and this is very important to me, 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 say I'm a homeschooling mother, I want my five year old to cover the syllabus of say kg to or memorize these Minnesota 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.

00:23:36--> 00:23:44

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

00:23:46--> 00:24:30

and the next step is that now it's the night of Ramadan, you're praying Yardeni Bada and you are putting your file in front of Allah in the form of the US make dua for every single of these areas is the last point 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 learn that nothing can change the Divine Decree except dua. Nothing can change the Divine Decree except Ah, so this is a time for you to make crazy dance, right? And then,

00:24:30--> 00:24:44

when you have planned every detail of your ear to the best of your ability, you're going to make dua to Allah subhanaw taala to make her your 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 a las Panatela nothing is going to work for us. Nothing will become a reality. So now sit down, make lots and lots and lots of us right and when it comes

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 does meaningful? First is, that's something that I say, you know, having a strong why? Having a very strong reason? Why are you making this? You know, why do you want something you're asking for?

00:25:25--> 00:25:44

I'll give you a simple example of the way Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he prayed and whether that's my super favorite, right? So you know, the Battle of better 313 Muslims one versus 1000 well equipped men and any logical mind will say, flat victory for the machine again, I mean, this is no competition.

00:25:45--> 00:25:58

And now we see that what the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is making he's saying, or Allah, if these handful Muslims die today, they will be no one to worship you till the Day of Judgment.

00:26:00--> 00:26:11

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 shear of Allah 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 my reason remember my dear brothers and sisters a love and answer you does 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 does powerful by having a strong reason by putting a shirt Do you want a child Okay great. Why should Allah give your 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 drive to my charity center or 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 VI in your wires and the reason in your dance and inshallah you will see that you will enjoy making the user will become meaningful. And I'm seeing it again and again my dear brothers and sisters allowance to answer your prayer if you do not. You know if you do not have a good why Allah is not in need. We are in need, you know, putting his share makes our dogs stronger. Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, yeah, you have nurse Juan Antonio Fukada Oh Allah, Allah, Allahu Allah when you will honey, all mankind, you are those in need of Allah, while Allah Allah is free of any need and he is

00:27:49--> 00:28:08

praiseworthy, too. We are in need we need a strong way. So for example, you are planning to lose weight Why shall I help you? Oh Allah I want to have more energy to worship you you want a bigger house why what's your good reason? Oh Allah al spirit room for the Quran glasses are an upload your system in my new house

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

and also added the engine here please note that it's not making a wow or taking an old you know for example people do this all the time you know, Oh Allah do such and such thing for me and I'll offer do not feel or you know, I'll do some charity or or life you give me a new house I'll feed 100 people No, this this is not this type of stuff, this type of stuff. It is not engaged with me. What I'm seeing is different. It's making you 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 for

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

this in the next world as well. So for example, if you get a big house and hamdulillah girl for you, but maybe you will be happier in this word.

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

I mean, maybe you know you can take the advantage of dua, this door and the next word. If you start Quran classes in that new house as well. Right this is gonna reward you in the next thanks well 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 alas need more energetically you will pray more energetically you will run around you know conducting halacha us without getting tired. You will stand in long camel 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 an example look at the Darth gnosall

00:29:37--> 00:30:00

SLM the doll that I just recited before the beginning of this webinar. He said rubbish shortly surgery we assume only only one auditor melissani by why Yep, oh golly, spring that open for me my chest, untie the knot from my tongue. Why? Why should Allah do this for Musa so that when he goes to convey I

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

last message to frown, 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--> 00:30:52

My dear brothers and sisters, you know, Allah, Allah will bless you Allah can remove this difficulty even if you make simple VA that Allah fix my problem, whatever the problem is, but why not make it more powerful by making it you know by making smarter dua so as to benefit from your doors in this world. And the next word is well, so remember Robina RTF and dunya has an elephant FLT has Anna Okay, now the banana that our Lord give us good in this world, and God 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?

00:30:52--> 00:30:59

Great. So what's the last year and this reminds me of a very good Hadith inshallah I'll read it out for you.

00:31:00--> 00:31:36

Abu Huraira, may Allah be pleased 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 soil. And so they upon 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, the center says my name, which was the same that he heard from the cloud.

00:31:49--> 00:32:34

The owner of the garden, I asked him, oh 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 sowing? 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 1/3 of it in charity. I spent 1/3 on myself and my family and invest 1/3 back into the garden charity in the Battle of Allah, Allah Shira, and this remind 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 know. You'd be

00:32:34--> 00:32:47

thinking that I don't counsel men. Yes, I do not cancel men. He was my Muslim, so no worries. So apart from many things that we discussed, and I suggested him, I asked him, you know, give me a good reason. Why should Allah give you a job?

00:32:48--> 00:33:35

You know, Will you will you set a small percentage for Allah or 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 that's just one storyline, right? And that there are many, many stories of the same source. Okay, that actually brings me to the next part, which I call the crazy does make some crazy dance. What I have discussed now, is what I call

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

the realistic aspect of making the right.

00:33:39--> 00:34:26

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 totally 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 up for that as well. Regardless of the how, for example, you want to leave some mind work mind blowing set casually 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 may die like crazy. I don't know how am I

00:34:26--> 00:34:59

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 the Imam of masjid, masjid and LP but you have no clue again where to begin from? Mehta. Just ask Allah to show you the steps. Or maybe you are 40 Plus and haven't conceived a child here. And you know the word is telling you that you have no hope. I am telling you that you have all the hope and the word. Allah give Ibrahim and Zachary Ellis Ellis

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

and Sons when they were too old to have kids and you know both of them were surprised almost saw that they couldn't believe it. So don't lose hope in the rockmart of Allah Allah Strama will be there for you. But remember that you will have to make the first you will have to do your you will have to take the first step. Just appreciate the immaculate confidence. The Coriolis alum he had in the Mercy of Allah he took the first step remember,

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

he made the he knew that he was told to have a baby. He also knew that his wife was barren, yet he made dua 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 subhanaw 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 doors by remembering that the one who can give a child to zirconia, in his old age from a barren woman can do anything for you.

00:36:14--> 00:36:57

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 nationally and inshallah we'll see what happens. It's a long story, but I will summarize it for you in sha Allah, and I'll skip unnecessary, you know, details to maintain decency. So the sister says, ever since I

00:36:57--> 00:37:07

was 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 naturally, and I would need to go through artificial matters such as an IVF, which is not only expensive, but

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

a highly troubled 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, when my doctors told me that my tubes are totally blocked. 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, I could ask for something bigger and better.

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

So one fine day my team had my team heard from my counseling team told me off the course empowered Muslim and Baba Muslim has a course that I conducted for Islamic online university three years back and still in the diploma session, if you want, you can have a look at it inshallah. And she was being told that she could join this course and she it would be helpful for her. So just getting the long story short here, the so that she talks about the next session, the next session and environments lemma 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 the 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 change my prayers and I used to ask Allah for an offspring through national matters. I left my medicine as a doctors prescribe me OCPs which were very important for my treatment, but then 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, but she was very

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

amazed. And she says that I never forget to thank Allah that I put my trust in Him and He blessed me with a miracle. My trust and faith in Allah has got stronger and I pray to him that it 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 adores for which you

00:40:00--> 00:40:43

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 it's like real SLM making the tougher Archer work would have the call him but you know, I would say mean this don't anyway trust Allah and see how miracles happen. Remember, Allah is the One Who even hears the whispers of your heart and He answers when we call whenever you reach out to him he answers he still right loss mantra says in the Quran, what is so I like either the enemy for in your colleague, would

00:40:43--> 00:41:29

you build out a die? Is that done for lista Ji boo li while you mean be like Allah whom you should do that when my sermon as you are Muhammad, 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 dua for the impossible, you pour 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're making God's 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 doors our tongue is moving but you don't We don't have confidence you know, rather than focusing on the mind and power and ram of a love you're focusing on our strength, our resources and our possibilities remember, you know, such to us which lack faith and conviction and those that are made with a heedless mind they're hardly answered crazy these crazy dance the way I told you Crazy Dogs should have crazy high confidence and Allah's mercy He will give he will give to you from you know where you can't even imagine

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

right in shall I hope I have been raided already another strategy to get peace through our doors is to attach alas beautiful names with our doors. So Allah says in the Quran that for Allah are the beautiful names so call him with those beautiful names with those beautiful attributes. Yeah, Razzak increase my risk and helped me to earn $5,000 A month yeah Cordelia versa you are too saucy give me a you know give me a new house on this earth Yeah, the hub bless me with righteous by a child and so on. So attach the attributes of Allah the names of Allah with your doors. And Andre did one of the very important doors to me this night on a little closer is what is what Prophet salallahu Salam dot

00:42:50--> 00:43:34

Aisha de la Alana. And what was that allow my inner Calhoun Theremin to humble afar right for me, that Oh Allah, you are the one who grants pardon for this and loves forgiving, so forgive me. And I 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'd urge you to forgive others. When you forgive others. You have no idea my dear brothers and sisters you liberate yourself. You don't 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

00:43:34--> 00:43:49

hurts and it hurts really bad. But let go of it. Let go of it for the sake of Allah Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, and let them burn in over and overlook would you not lie that Allah should forgive you and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

00:43:50--> 00:44:08

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 we do less than our sins in front of Allah forgive others let go you will benefit your own self and

00:44:09--> 00:44:48

in other reminders that unread address those people who do not feel Ramadan you know or the blessings or the little huddle 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 not feel the pressing of Ramadan, you just don't feel like getting from your bed and going and making wudu and doing a bother. So just make lots and lots of go and use you will see that this connection is reestablished and you would really be able to enjoy the nights in sha Allah the nights

00:44:48--> 00:44:59

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 I will do bIllahi min. Ash shaytani regime allowed

00:45:00--> 00:45:41

Right goes about to make will do, and say enough is enough, I'm 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, Hollis Enough is enough. And finally, finally, I'm just trying to wind it up. But I have so much to hear that I just cannot just get to the conclusion. But just one more point that a few more points, actually. Okay, so planning planning this night beforehand is very important. All right. So plan your other beforehand, make sure you do like you know, from 10 to 90 10pm, I'll go further away from 10 to 11pm, I'll just read

00:45:41--> 00:46:19

for and from 11 to 1130 is my daughter dime. And this should include the realistic does a crazy dog sauce from Miranda from Santa, it's a combination of all those dogs. So plan that night beforehand. Because if you will 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 accountability, buddy, if you can pair up with someone excellent, nothing that that didn't, that she'll not use, she will 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 helped a lot

00:46:19--> 00:46:34

to have someone as your buddy. And finally, please remember things happen. Things happen, you plan and allow plan. So don't beat yourself up if you can't do everything that you have planned.

00:46:35--> 00:47:22

You know, what if you want to pray online and may die and 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

00:47:22--> 00:48:03

you than 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 expands what you focus on, it really really expands. So if you focus on, you know, things that you're 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 widow and Holocaust done you already you're a soldier, you're gonna

00:48:03--> 00:48:49

fight it, you're gonna crush it Inshallah, and something that I put as my facebook status in the morning, and I'll 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 or is a success without being tested. You name it. Accepting our circumstances is just like baking peace with the fact that the one who has chosen us for this test knows better and we trust his knowledge. And while our to do list is less

00:48:49--> 00:49:31

than 50% Done. Remember that there's another list where are these 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 Navaho. 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 scenario checklist which

00:49:31--> 00:49:59

we seldom think of you planned and he planned trust that his to do list for you is better than yours. And make sure that when an opportunity comes you do not fail to get your check marked. 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 home 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 the last guest. Go perform them right if you can don't disturb others. Yes, if they invite you go have Iftar and please come back before the way because it's it's completely awkward situation for the host when you sit in chat, and the host has to go for that are we and the poor guy is regretting calling you for, you know, dry biryani and all these things. So, you know, again, start the month of partying it's the month of focusing, connecting with the last panel, Darla, and making something for your IRA. That's

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

all my dear brothers and sisters don't forget was a finest time Yemen, Egypt, Syria, Pakistan and a 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 more behind the gun shadow Elijah Atlanta and stuff. We're going to be late cinema aleikum wa rahmatullah. He died at barakato
