hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

00:00:42--> 00:00:46

Madhu subhanho wa Taala was merely Hellfire akula

00:00:47--> 00:00:52

and hamdu lillahi wa ala had informed the summit the lady in Amelia Dora mula doremi akula. Hakuna had

00:00:55--> 00:01:04

salat wa salam O Allah Muhammad Ali Al amin say they are well in our offering. Emmanuel ambia even more saline Nabina Muhammad Ali he was so big My

00:01:06--> 00:01:10

dear brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:01:15--> 00:01:18

I'm honored to be with you

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

for this dose in sha Allah.

00:01:22--> 00:01:29

And it is a great privilege for me to be on this position, the position of

00:01:31--> 00:01:47

chef Matt Matala, who has been teaching in this dose for some years. Now, Larry Ward him and grant him Sophia, and grant all the brothers and sisters helping in establishing, discuss and maintaining it for such a long period of time.

00:01:50--> 00:02:00

Actually, as you know, that the topic that you are going through is a double muffler. And when chestnut Mottola told me that you can

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

deliver the doors and instead of me, so, he told me you can speak about other issues because this issue of illegible fraud comprises all spheres of life. So,

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

I have chosen to speak about

00:02:20--> 00:02:32

a very important topic in my view, which is needed for the Muslim Ummah now, and which is needed for the individual,

00:02:33--> 00:02:52

for all individuals, Muslims, brothers and sisters, and I think one of the main reasons behind this decline that is going on in our oma is that the oma as a community and the oma as a group of individuals

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

is lacking behind and

00:02:57--> 00:03:05

very few people really possess that quality or this quality or this character.

00:03:07--> 00:03:12

This character brothers and sisters is productivity,

00:03:13--> 00:03:16

productivity, what does it mean productivity,

00:03:18--> 00:03:27

productivity, in a nutshell, it means to take an initiative to do things, before things are done for you.

00:03:29--> 00:03:36

You take initiative to carry out activities to do so, many works,

00:03:37--> 00:03:47

to take an action before things are done for you or before even people are guiding you to do things.

00:03:48--> 00:04:33

And this quality brothers and sisters is really a quality that is in need in all spheres of life. And maybe you know that now, companies, when they interview their people or their new candidates, they check whether they have the those new candidates, whether they have this important quality or not. Because if the person has this important quality, most likely he will be having a leadership skills and he will be a charismatic person and will be an effective person and in turn, he will be a real asset for that organization.

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

Brothers and sisters, the essence of this important quality goes back to Quran and Sunnah. We have a limited time to go through this important quality so we'll try inshallah to cover different issues in a very short period of time. As we said, the essence of this quality brothers and sisters is the Quran and Sunnah

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

Not only the Quran and Sunnah, but the practice of the Sahaba of the allowed to Allah and home, the practice of the believers, they follow us, the practice of scholars throughout Islamic history and even common sense. Common Sense leads to this quality

00:05:19--> 00:05:50

from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, we can go through some verses. For example, the first verse that comes to our mind is the verse of Surah Surah Allah Emraan when Allah Allah, Allah says, We're sorry, oh lm hiraki never become well, Jonathan alto has somewhat Well, we're in the cleaning routine. And Medina in Santa Fe sobre. La will tell him in a live well as in and in us, will la Martini.

00:05:51--> 00:06:22

In this verse or in these two verses? A larger levada brothers and sisters is commanding us What sir Do is not only praising being hasty and being quick in doing good things and in doing good actions know a lot Allah Allah is commanding us What sir, do not just do them, no be hasty. Be quick in doing this. Now, in this ayah Allah Allah Allah says what sorry, what for?

00:06:23--> 00:06:29

Many people when we talk about productivity, thinking that we are talking about it from an angle

00:06:31--> 00:07:24

from an angle that is reflected on the oma means, thinking that because the oma is in need for any activity for any work to be done, then we are encouraging those people to carry out these activities. No, once we are encouraging people brothers and sisters, to be active people and to take proactive steps in doing things. This is because of them. Because of each individual because of you not because of me not because of the Muslim community, not because of the whole oma It is because of you. It is because of myself if I want to take active steps was to enter for what Ilana ferati Mira become the forgiveness of your Lord is needed. You need it, I need it. Every single one of us is in

00:07:24--> 00:07:33

desperate need for that matter of Allah, Allah Allah. That's why once you have, once you remember all your sins,

00:07:34--> 00:08:00

as a believer always remembers his sins, He will remember he will be so hasty in making advantage in taking advantage of these minutes that he is living in. What scenario Elon Musk ferati mirrabooka not only the mascara, from Allah, Allah Allah. But what Jana Jana as wide as heavens and earth

00:08:01--> 00:08:12

algo Hassan summit what was very diplomatic in La Jolla, Allah prepared this gentle form of tequila Latina, Latina in Buena Vista, bah, bah bah, here there is another meaning

00:08:14--> 00:08:31

in this ayah about being proactive, and La Vina una festiva Bala, there are those who spent in matters of hardship, and in matters of relaxation, relaxation, during hardship, and during being relaxed.

00:08:33--> 00:08:42

And this is a very important quality, sub quality of those who are having this important quality which is productivity.

00:08:44--> 00:09:19

I am being productive, not when I am relaxed, not when I am happy. No, I should be productive in all our situations, especially to Bala in hardship, and that is the real test. And then we'll call the mean and Leyva will afina and Ines those who hold their anger and those who forgive others. This is another dimension of productivity that don't wait for others to forgive what you have done, you forgive others.

00:09:20--> 00:09:59

Because you are being productive, you give more than you take will Athena and enough so you need to pardon others. Then Allah Allah Allah says, Allah have mercy machining, machining, the machining either though, those who give or those who perfect what they do well ah who have been machining. This is another dimension added to the previous dimensions mentioned in there is about being proactive about being a person who give more than who, more than taking and then the other idea as well in Surah Al Haddad Allah Jalla Allah says

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

WhatsApp, Whatsapp WhatsApp Yahoo race, have a competition have a race in Mr. Philippine never become virgin knocking out wahaca this summer you will definitely let me know below Hiroshi the same thing in the Quran. We see so many verses like this was said the owner said your own Ola equal mokaba would not just the believers at savvy hone in on can who you say the owner, what can we add Runa Robin Wha What can we do?

00:10:35--> 00:10:40

Those, they used to be so hasty to do good actions.

00:10:42--> 00:11:06

And they used to make Robin raba out of fear out of love. What can Buddha said when they were racing competing towards these actions, they were very productive people, they are not waiting for others, to encourage them or to guide them or to motivate them, they are self motivated.

00:11:07--> 00:11:27

This is the real meaning of productivity and brothers being proactive. What does it also mean? As we said, it means that you give more than you take? What does that mean? What is the philosophy background behind this, when you give more than what

00:11:28--> 00:11:52

you take? It means that the offer becomes more than the demand. And what does that remind us of? This reminds us of the low prices and get good economy, good welfare, because once more people are offering services and works to be done.

00:11:53--> 00:12:19

We have more of them than those who are asking and begging people to do to give them things to do things for them. Then, of course, they may we will maintain a good welfare within the Muslim community. And this brothers reminds us of the Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:12:20--> 00:12:31

and he had been earlier, higher Amina Leah does have the upper hand is better than the lower hand what does that mean? The upper hand that gives

00:12:33--> 00:13:14

that does not take or avoid taking make it so minimum, why? Because if you give if he gives, and just very few of us take then we will have we will maintain welfare well being within the Muslim community. And I remember just a very simple example about that, you know and Ramadan, Ramadan is coming inshallah within few weeks in Ramadan when we break our fast and when people bring some food, especially date. And when I bring few dates, you bring other few dates, and every one of us bring some few dates,

00:13:15--> 00:14:10

then we will end up having a lot of dates and we will eat a good amount of data and distill there will be some data remaining. But if just very few of us bring some dates, then of course at the end, we will end up with very few offs have eaten good amount of dates, this is very simple. Same thing now in activities in our Muslim community. Take for example, the issue of Dawa there were two non Muslim Brothers, the demand is higher, much higher than the offer. Very few people are offering these services to non Muslims. Is that true or not? That's why we see so many in so many occasions. Many non Muslims are inquiring about Islam, just they are asking, Well, why a very trivial questions

00:14:10--> 00:14:59

about Islam. Where are the Muslims? 2 million people are living in the UK? Where are they? What are they doing? And they have all types of facilities where they can give power to non Muslims. I remember just a few a few weeks ago, when we were in Islamic Sharia Council, the brothers told me there is a sister who wants to speak to or there is a woman who wants to speak to you. And they were very surprised. And then I was surprised that they were surprised that a lady wants to talk to me. And then when I went to hurt, I found why they were very surprised. She was a typical non Muslim lady in a very sunny day, wearing such clothes and then she told me I am the one

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

Who my colleague told you about?

00:15:06--> 00:15:50

I said, you so on so she said, Yes. I said, Mashallah, how are you, sister? Salaam Alaikum? How are you? She was a Muslim, and Muslim lady. She accepted Islam just a few, three weeks before she came to me. And how did she act accept Islam pro activity from another system. Another revert. She met her. And they had a meeting. And that reverts sister was very clever. She stopped talking to her about, about what that attracts people to Islam, not about Muslims being any peaceful people, not about Muslims being nice people, not about Islam, that it is a clean, tidy religion, not about Muslims being

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

prompt in their

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

timings. And then they're coming to the door like this does. Okay, not about all of these things.

00:16:02--> 00:16:08

She because she knows that this is nonsense, or she knows that this is what she is telling about is not true.

00:16:09--> 00:16:58

She talked to her about the heat, the concept of the hip. And then that lady, she said, Well, that makes a lot of sense. said that makes a lot of sense. And then she starts asking her about Islam. And then just she had very few minutes to speak to her about Islam. So that lady accepted Islam and left. She knows nothing about Islam. When she came to Islamic Sharia Council, she knows nothing about Islam. She said, I heard about hijab and I saw my colleague wearing a hijab. So means this is not acceptable. I said, No, it's not acceptable. Of course, I try to explain to her. Then she said about prayer. I know that Muslims pray, and we have to pray. And no one taught me how to pray for

00:16:58--> 00:17:47

three weeks. I came by my own self to pray three times, and I was just doing some actions that I have seen in the TV. No one taught her how to play even we were struggling to find a sister dedicating some time for her to teach her to socialize with her. We didn't find we didn't find why more demand, less offer. This is the situation. That's why we need to talk about such an important quality, productivity products. As we said, in the Quran, there are many I had so many verses in the Quran talking about productivity, Allah Jalla Allah when he told us about this to the study of surah trc.

00:17:48--> 00:17:52

When Allah Allah Allah sent two prophets, and then the people

00:17:54--> 00:18:17

rejected the help or rejected them, Allah Allah Allah then supported them by sending a third prophet. Then our agenda Allah says, when the people rejected the help and rejected with our of those prophets, Allah Allah Allah says, Raja Raja Rahman, XL Medina, TSR la comida, mostly, a man came from the furthest point in the city.

00:18:18--> 00:18:22

And he did not come just from the furthest point in the city. Yes.

00:18:24--> 00:19:16

He is running, hurrying up Amitabha mursaleen. Why, why was he so hasty to deliver the message? Because he wants to be proactive before they deny the profit before they fall into so many Cofer acts. He was so keen to guide them and to deliver that message. Elijah lavalla brothers and sisters Allah Allah Allah could say wotja Rajan, kala cometa almost any why Allah Allah Allah and we know that the Quran is a very profound is the most profound speech and is the most precise speech. What is the need to say? La Jolla min XL Medina TSR from the furthest point and he was running.

00:19:17--> 00:19:59

There is a meaning behind it. Allah de la vida wants to tell us something behind it. be hasty, be quick in doing good things. And so that in Serato, passes the story of Musa wotja amin XL Medina, Terra Julius, again very similar, Allah Allah Allah is mentioning this again. Min oxen Medina from the furthest point, yes. And Ronnie in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, brothers and sisters. We see the very the hadith of Asahi hain very amazing Hadith, very, very amazing Hadith and I think

00:20:00--> 00:20:34

In Arabic language, because of the nature of Arabic language, if you know Arabic language it will be so amazing for you to hear it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, In Sahaja and ebihara Toba Toba abdon hidden biryani for us he feasibility law in Canada circa sahoo. Office circa one in Canada Phil hirasawa, for who are feeling a Lhasa suhu beratan. Kodama in his dinner in eastern LMU the law were insha Allah,

00:20:36--> 00:21:12

the beginning of this Hadith, maybe you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, there is a God now, there is a Delhomme, there is Abdul Hamid Sir, there is Abdul Camila, there is one case, where either Sheikh Abdullah and Takashi then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentioned this Buddha. Buddha told Toba means literally or Toba means a big tree in the paradise. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam normally says this when he is so pleased about the action and about the person who is carrying out the action Buddha.

00:21:13--> 00:21:26

And if it is that big tree in the paradise means this person is getting something big in the paradise Toba for who they are then it doesn't care about any any slave.

00:21:28--> 00:21:32

What is the quality what is the main quality of him

00:21:33--> 00:21:49

to be of such caliber buba The abdon are hidden in any philosophy sebelah he is taking the reins of his horse. He is mounting his horse moving here under

00:21:51--> 00:21:52

FISA vilella

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

just ready

00:21:55--> 00:22:08

actually not ready. He already took some steps, feasibility law because he is moving. He took the reins of his horse moving here on their feasibility law in the sake of Allah Allah Allah.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

In the Hadith, Ashoka so who

00:22:14--> 00:22:21

his herd is the shfm mo beratan Padma dust his feet full of dust

00:22:23--> 00:22:25

in his toe, Idina lemon law.

00:22:26--> 00:23:19

What in Shatha we're in Chef ilmu chef, if he asked permission, he will not be granted permission. If he seeks to intercede for someone he will not be given that. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said according to this rewire the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Canada Phil harasser who often harasser were in Canada, Safa Hua Sapa if he was appointed a forward position, he will fulfill that if he was appointed in the rare as a rare God, He will be fulfilling that position. It doesn't care for him, what kind of position he is appointed for, he will fulfill that position, he is not seeking to be of a procedure, a position of authority, no, it doesn't matter for

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

him.

00:23:21--> 00:23:30

If he was appointed to safeguard the people, he will do that. Just a normal God, He will do that.

00:23:31--> 00:23:33

And in this hadith brothers,

00:23:35--> 00:23:44

and this Hadith, there is a very important quality mentioned in this hadith about such proactive people.

00:23:46--> 00:24:15

In that Hadith, many people think that proactive people take on leading positions and that is not right. That is not right. If I come to the masjid and even if I if I am the Imam of the masjid or even if I have a big position in a company, or even irrespective of whom am I, if I come and I found that there are some dust in the masjid, some

00:24:16--> 00:24:59

rubbish in the masjid? Why don't I take initiative and to clean that? let me forget my position. Let me say the forgiveness of Allah Allah Allah. Let me seek opposition in the sight of Allah, Allah Allah, with Allah, Allah Allah. This is the real leader who motivates others who control others with love, not by being in such in a certain position. He doesn't care. And then in the Hadith, there is another indication of such of one of the important qualities of those people. He said in the Hadith in kind of an errata if he was appointed

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

To be a God, in the rare of the in the back of the army, he will be doing that, if he was appointed to be a God in the front of the army, he will be doing that means he is listening to the commands of others, he is fulfilling the commands of others, he has an upset, I have to give the commands, I am the leader, I have taken the reins of my horse, I have taken the initiative. So I should be granted the position that is from an Islamic point of view is irrelevant. That is not important. The important is what you do, not where you are.

00:25:44--> 00:25:53

And this also brothers in the Hadith teaches us a very important quality of this character of being productive is

00:25:54--> 00:26:20

don't once we ask people to be productive, it doesn't mean that we are asking them to be an organized, no, you have to be organized. This person, he was not doing things haphazard. He was not doing things out of his own mind. He was going to the people in charge of those activities. And they are appointing him in that position or in this position.

00:26:21--> 00:26:24

In kind of harasser who put him in that position.

00:26:25--> 00:26:55

Someone has put him in that position means he is a well organized person, he listens to other. And this, as I said, we were going to mention it but we mentioned it here in the Hadith that we need to be proactive, yes. But we need to be as well. well organized. We need to take initiative in order to do things. But we need to be as well organized, well organized. And then brothers.

00:26:56--> 00:27:33

As we said, these are just some examples of the Hadith, the verses of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that support this important quality. Now, if you if we go back to the stories, the era of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, this era of the Sahaba, this era of the scholars, we will find that all our Muslim leaders possess that quality, you will never find a leader. Actually, you will never find a leader in the history, who does not possess that quality.

00:27:34--> 00:27:37

Who is a passive person, not an active person.

00:27:38--> 00:27:46

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam No need to speak about the seer of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and how productive he was.

00:27:47--> 00:28:01

But just like when I was preparing this topic, I came across a study of well known study in Sahih al Bukhari. But I was sort of amazed when I read that the story is,

00:28:03--> 00:28:29

goes on by saying that the Prophet the people of Medina at the time of the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam, had a very, very loud noise, sudden noise in one night, and then they gather together in order to see what's going on Phoenix at mineral Medina in the very far end of Medina.

00:28:31--> 00:29:01

And then, they so they are about to go to check the source of this noise. They found the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam already coming and he is telling them learn torah o' lantern Oh, don't be worried. Don't be worried. There is nothing wrong learn torah uhland to Allah Subhana Allah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is receiving revelation from Allah, Allah Allah, he could stay and say,

00:29:02--> 00:29:32

Now Allah, Allah, Allah will reveal something about this noise or about this sound. But he said Don't let me go by myself a check. He never waited for Abu Bakr to accompany him. He never waited for others a habit to accompany him. He took that initiative. This is a cell This is self motivated, quality. This quality is embedded in leaders.

00:29:33--> 00:29:38

No need for someone to push you to go and check.

00:29:39--> 00:29:40

Now even

00:29:42--> 00:29:46

you know, we're in one company, one company

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

when they interview people to check whether they have this productivity or not. They do so many tricks in order to see whether the other people take quotes

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

steps and they pretend Yanni in the interview, the one who is taking the interview during the interview is a is pretending that he drank water. And he sort of

00:30:15--> 00:30:53

Yani, the water sort of fell down. And he was coughing, and he needs someone to help him in order to get rid of that cough. And he is pretending that in order to see what kind of reaction this person is going to take, is he going just to wait until this person finished coughing? And maybe he will die? Or is he going to call nine nine? Or is he going to call the other people? Or is he going to escape? Or is he going to take some steps, proactive steps in helping this person.

00:30:55--> 00:31:44

It is something embedded in ourselves, this is what we need. And if we do not possess that quality, we need to instill these qualities in ourselves in order to be real leaders for the oma. This is the Prophet sallallahu wasallam nonintervention about also abubaker acidic or the Allahu taala and oh, and the initiative that he took during the Hello Belinda. The apostasy was when some Muslims have stated and no need also today to talk about trauma and even an even avatar live let me just mention this story. When I when I live in avatar was very young, because this is not Jani. It is a story related to Alexander Vitali when he was a boy

00:31:45--> 00:32:17

not when he was a halifa. You may expect that halifa to be a productive person but not a boy. You know, when Abuja radi Allahu taala and who sent his brother first to investigate about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and then his brother came to him and Abu Dhabi. Abu Dhabi allowed Thailand who was not satisfied with the answer or the information his brother came up with. So he went himself to investigate the matter. So he went and he was

00:32:19--> 00:32:27

moving in Almudena in Mecca. And he was very careful not to be caught by the elite of our price, etc.

00:32:28--> 00:32:59

and even a Vitaly but at that time was about 10 years of age 10 years of age, he was not so old. Any boy 10 years of age, many of our boys these days, never think about that, but it is productivity. So he saw him for the first night. The second night, he noticed that this is a stranger and he is seeking for something. Then he went to him. He approached him and he told him should the stranger know his home?

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

Jani Ayana, Laurie and Jada Manzella who, then they started the dialogue, then he trusted him, and they're even the very trusted and even the pilot. And then he told him that I came to know about this prophet then finally came, brought him to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and as of nomadic, also when he was young, he said, one time the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent me to do something.

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

And then I was bit late.

00:33:37--> 00:33:47

And when I came home, my mother told me, what do you mean your anus? He said, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent me to do something. She said, What is it?

00:33:49--> 00:34:29

He was a very young boy. He said, No. This is the secret of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I shouldn't tell you that to his mother. And he was a young boy had a several Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam I should not expose that very young boy. He, he does he's not waiting for someone to guide him. Clearly. What do you need to tell what you need not to tell what you need to do what you need not to do? No, he's, he's self motivated. He's carrying out these things out of productivity. This is what we want. Now.

00:34:30--> 00:34:48

His stories about this productivity from all around Yanni from all our Muslim leaders and our lemma literally just mentioned this yesterday. We want to stop the anime a few minutes before not only to make some inshallah, because it is a young man.

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

Ma Ma Ma, Ma Ma Ma. Ma. You know the time of fitna when they tested him and they wanted him to say that on his carry

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

created during the time of moon, and during the time of underwater and Mr. Mathematica during the time of Mr. Moon the start of the fitnah

00:35:11--> 00:35:31

moon called him, asked him to meet him. So, of course, when you are you when you receive a request or actually a letter commanding you to attend the meeting with the leader with the halifa leave alone the halifa you will be bit scared.

00:35:32--> 00:35:34

So, the people heard about that

00:35:35--> 00:35:42

there is a person, his name is Abu Jaffa embury Abu Jafar and embody anyone knows that.

00:35:44--> 00:36:00

No, no one knows about a Buddha. All of us know about to about telemanagement but there are hidden people and non people and those are non people they might help al Islam more than the non people.

00:36:02--> 00:36:16

And Allah Allah Allah does not care about people to be known the in this dunya Allah Allah Allah cares about people doing something for themselves. So Abuja for an ambassador, he said, When I heard about this,

00:36:18--> 00:36:50

I traveled about to now I traveled, I crossed the river in Iraq. And then I went to Alabama. I saw him in sort of in a hand like a shop, then I came to him what kind of productivity this Abu Jaffa embury has, what does he want to tell Alibaba? Alibaba, this is the big enough. Everyone knows him. He is the biggest amount at that time.

00:36:51--> 00:36:52

But

00:36:53--> 00:36:56

do something, do something for yourself?

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

And don't ever belittle yourself before scholars before leaders? Do something? Help them maybe a statement or a word of Nazi how you give to a leader to Anam to a chef to a scholar that will support him that will make him to remain firm on the help. This Abuja for embury said Lima, a tequila fear Allah. Yeah. And look, don't listen to what they want you to say. Don't listen to them. Because if you listen to them in adapter home, many people will go astray because of you.

00:37:37--> 00:38:00

And if you remain on the help, firm on the help, many people will remain on the hook on the truth because of you. And Mr. Mohammed said, will lie these words workpace will be came straight to my heart. And I became so fun of because of these statements. And remember,

00:38:01--> 00:38:04

as we mentioned that Mr. Mohammed, I remember

00:38:05--> 00:38:29

he used to say Allahu Mohammed Al Hasan his son, he told him yeah abbiati semi educated on Taco Bell. Hey, Sam, I heard you many times, saying Oh ALLAH forgive a bell Haytham who is Apple hater. He said double Haytham this person when I was in the jail and they wanted to with me, and I will hate him.

00:38:30--> 00:38:44

He dragged my clothes. And he said Yes, ma'am. Do you know who am I? He said no. He said and I will hate them up purva means I am I will Hi Sam the thief

00:38:45--> 00:38:57

Mcdo one fee kitabi fee deewani. Amir in one minute, it is written it is recorded that I was last 1000 times

00:38:58--> 00:39:20

because I used to steal things from people steal, steal things Headingley from people otherwise his hand would have been cut. And they flogged him 18,000 times Allah tifereth yani distributed. So and he said to him was about and I had patience.

00:39:23--> 00:39:27

So you as an Imam, you should be patient

00:39:28--> 00:39:55

and in my mind metate Yanni if this person who used to be a thief, he had sub he used to be patient on this flogs. Why shouldn't I be while I am on the help, I am on the truth. So this also made me firm on the help and I had patient as well or I had patients as well.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

There are so many stories about being proud

00:40:00--> 00:40:27

What is the point brothers and sisters? The point is just to conclude about to conclude this session is, every single one of us needs to do something, need to do something for what for who? Not for the Muslim Ummah, he needs to do something for himself first, Whatsapp do not feel it may not be comacina in Ottawa, Canada center within Latin America has some artwork

00:40:28--> 00:40:38

for himself first to seek the pleasure of Allah, Allah Allah, the forgiveness of Allah, Allah Allah. And this is the real motivation behind being proactive.

00:40:39--> 00:41:07

And the second point brothers and sisters, don't ever be like in what you do, in the sake of Allah, Allah, Allah. Allah, Allah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a daddy from Israel, a prostitute from Bani Israel in she was granted the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah and the agenda because of what, you know the story of a dog, she took that initiative to provide for that dog.

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

And

00:41:10--> 00:41:16

they reversed the project. He told me Do you know how I became Muslim.

00:41:17--> 00:41:21

He said, we used to deal with drugs,

00:41:22--> 00:41:52

and consumed drugs. And in the sort of gang, there were some Muslims, they were bringing some drugs for us, etc. And they were also dealing with these drugs and using these drugs. And then all of a sudden, one Muslim guy out of those drug users. Maybe he said to himself, enough is enough, let me do something good in my life. So he brought two copies of the Quran.

00:41:54--> 00:41:55

He is a drug user,

00:41:56--> 00:41:58

he brought two copies of the Quran,

00:41:59--> 00:42:08

to this gang. And this brother took a copy and another brother took another copy. Both of them accepted Islam.

00:42:09--> 00:42:40

Don't ever be elected what you do, you can do a lot. Don't expect leaders to do things for you. You are a leader by yourself. It is not needed for you to be known to value in academia in any philosophy. sebelah just remember this hadith. mount your horse in the sake of Allah, Allah, Allah, move here and there and do things for yourself first, and for your own brothers, many people say we are not scholars.

00:42:42--> 00:43:37

Many people say we are not scholars, no need for you to be a scholar in order to distribute material. Some people say, Well, we are not rich people, we cannot donate. No need for you to be a rich person. If you can do something on the internet, there are many facilities for us to give power through internet, even sisters, they can do a lot on the internet. As I told you about this Muslim sister, we were looking searching for a sister that can teach her that can socialize with her. But we could not find any. Don't ever be little. Whatever you can do, brothers, even all of us are sinners. Don't expect to the big shift is not a sinner. Don't expect that a leader is not committing

00:43:37--> 00:44:29

sins, don't expect even as we said about the study of Buddha unbury, that the leader does not become weak. Or maybe he will be reluctant to be firm on the help or to be firm on saying the truth. No, he is a human being at the end of the day. He needs your support. Well, I in many cases when we give hope back in in Fridays, and we don't know what kind of reaction and just lay people come and they say well, ah he this hookah was talking about a problem. And let me tell you another story about something about your hotbar and he is telling just a story. He's not telling Jani the hottie be firm on the help or he is not encouraging the hottie by any mean he is just telling him a story. And then

00:44:29--> 00:44:52

later on, you use the story in another hotma and that story will be so effective because it came from the heart of that person who is gaining very what you are gaining very world and that person is gaining their reward. And Allah Allah Allah take seven people to paradise because all of them shared in preparing the outro

00:44:54--> 00:45:00

all of them share in preparing the outro that's why brothers the last message

00:45:00--> 00:45:12

We would like to narrow. There were many other things to be said. But the last message that I would like to deliver to all of you brothers, including myself, that never belittle yourself.

00:45:13--> 00:46:13

And the second point, don't wait until people push you to do so people guide you to do so. Take an initiative. If you don't know what to do, come and offer your services. Come to the man come to the area come to the chef. Come to Danny I guess chef Nirmala is in need of any of many efforts and many Yani brothers to help in setting maybe this dose and other things come and offer your service. Don't wait for others to tell you please come and helping. And once we have this kind of community, once we have this kind of individuals, then insha Allah who will be a victorious oma and then Allah Allah, Allah will be pleased with us in this dunya and therefore Allah dello Allah will be pleased

00:46:13--> 00:46:44

with us in the hereafter. We ask Allah Allah, Allah to bestow His mercy upon us. And we ask Allah, Allah Allah to guide us to implement what we have heard. And we ask Allah, Allah Allah to help us also to maintain this important quality, to have this productivity and to take initiative in doing things. And we ask Allah, Allah Allah to forgive all our sins, or sallallahu wasallam albaraka Nana Vienna, Muhammad Ali, he was a big man.
