salatu salam ala Sayidina Muhammad Allah Allah He was hobby of mine

00:00:18--> 00:00:23

are all the villa humanists Pinochet banyuwangi smilla

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

in alladhina, buena swatter

00:00:36--> 00:00:38

he can lead to Hana long

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

it can lead to Hana long

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

as the source of

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

the their respective brothers and sisters who are listening first year Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:01:04--> 00:01:44

The first thing and the most important thing is the knee and the intention. So, we sitting here so that we can get close to Allah xojo. Allah is the one that has set us in this world in this time. Whichever time you're living in, he is the one that decreed this. And allottee that specifically, by planning who your parents are going to be, who your friends are going to be, which place you're going to live, which options you're going to have which colleges are in front of you which universities are there, which mattresses are there, who your teachers are going to be what kind of company you will have where you will sit down for your exams, Allah azza wa jal has written all of

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

that. So now,

00:01:47--> 00:02:07

the talk is about how to pass the exam successfully. The first and foremost thing is, when you're going for a career when you're going for an actual course. Most important thing is why am I doing this course? Honestly, speaking about why am I doing this course? law brothers don't ask this question. A lot of sisters don't ask this question. They get into it because the friend is doing it

00:02:08--> 00:02:14

is the going thing. Everyone's doing it. I gotta jump off the bandwagon. What bandwagon? are you jumping on?

00:02:15--> 00:02:22

are you jumping on New Zealand's Safina his arc? are you jumping on the Titanic?

00:02:23--> 00:02:33

Who are you jumping on? Don't just jump on anything. That's that's the biggest problem I find. Do you know how many people have finished a degree and they don't actually work in that field

00:02:34--> 00:02:56

of the degree. Why? Because they were given bad advice. Or they didn't know about what to do at the beginning of this career advice they give you in these. They don't give it to you in the beginning. I'll be honest with you. I know what those guys do getting paid to give you career advice, but most people don't get it and even if they get it those guys seen this in the offing you're gonna be a good electrician, whatever. How do you

00:02:58--> 00:03:33

how do you know when to be a good good you know, Doctor goodness and how do you know that they don't spend a good person give you a good advice but actually look into your skills go into your mind going to what you actually know what you're good at. And look at the history and apart from based on the history not even just your history but within yourself to dig out what you're actually good at. So that's the first and foremost wait anyway, you're going to of course, the most important thing I want to say is you need what is your what is you need? What is your whole intention? Most brothers, I'll be honest with you most sisters, what is your Nia I want to get a good job.

00:03:35--> 00:03:36

I want to work in tescos

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

they want to work around in around the corner.

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

In my dad's shop.

00:03:43--> 00:03:58

You know what is your near you near is what just to get good job. If you want to get a good job, you will get your good job through this what you need. I wanna pass. I want to get a star. I want to get a first Why? Because

00:03:59--> 00:04:07

I just want to get Fs. Why? Because I'm going to look good. I'm clever. I'm intelligent on approving

00:04:09--> 00:04:29

well you get it you'll do it. I want to go to Imperial I want to get to Cambridge. I want to get to this universe that university I want to get to the top university for medicine for the for the what comes after that. If you ask most brothers most sisters, they're going to say I want to be box.

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

That's that's where it's all going. If I get the good grades, then I get the good university. I get the good university then I carry on doing and I get a first then I get selected are all the people are with me. I become the chosen person. And then I go to some big company and I do good. And they like me. I like them and then hunky dory we live happily ever after. They give me nice checks at the end.

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

The day they feel my bank balance I get a nice house I settle down you know again is why we have nice children I educate them properly and bye bye to Brick Lane.

00:05:11--> 00:05:12

Bye bye to watch

00:05:13--> 00:05:28

what people have gotten their minds and what they want to do later on is that settle down big house five bedrooms, isn't that and hamdulillah I'm set for life two holidays a year go and spend some money come back again work like a rat in the rat race

00:05:30--> 00:05:43

Alhamdulillah after that basically go back to holidays, sunshine, plenty of things to see forget the fish the birds as well that are walking on the sea side. You know, I'm saying like, and they basically come back again, work again, go back out, come back again.

00:05:45--> 00:06:19

There's other people who want to get what do they want? They want to do it because my dad's gonna come and my mom's gonna kill me. I'm not gonna get back when I go home. I mean, it's like, you know, I'm gonna do because they're all after me. My prom. You know, my brother call first. My sister got first as well. Oh my god, I'm dead. If I don't get first and I'm dead, they're honest with me. The intention is what just just to live up to the standard live up to what the parents are saying live live up to what the society wants, oh, my God, all my friends are going to have to be with them. I have to do it.

00:06:20--> 00:06:32

I'm telling you, my brothers, my sisters, you've if this is most people, this isn't their hearts. I'm telling you please, if you haven't done so renew your intention right now if you're in college investing

00:06:33--> 00:06:50

between madrasa meaning your intention, you're not doing any of these people. You're not doing it for yourself. You're not doing it for your comfort, because you're doing it because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was his student, where he made the door and he said a lot of money as

00:06:51--> 00:07:19

our law I am asking you to give me a beneficial knowledge. A lot of money will be coming in far. Woman pulvinar Sha, Allah I seek refuge in You from a knowledge which will give me no benefit from a heart which will have no fear of you. A heart would have no fear. I mean, I admire and I'm seeking refuge in You from an eye that does not shed tears I'm seeking refuge in You for when do I

00:07:20--> 00:07:55

mean from a drama that is not heard, not accepted by a woman Hala is all of these four. So the sooner so the last one said that beneficial knowledge is something that we seek. And that's why you're in university. That's why I'm calling because this is beneficial knowledge. You're going to study medicine, you're going to study engineering, you're going to study it, and you're going to study whatever it is out there, that is a hell of a thing, okay? And you're going to have good intentions to benefit you. You're going to first benefit yourself because there's nothing wrong with benefiting yourself in an in a good nice way. That's fine, we get your money, you want to earn it,

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

but that's not your real intention, you will you will then be able to earn a livelihood for your family because Allah has ordered you to do it. Because Rasulullah sallallahu told you to do it. When

00:08:09--> 00:08:40

your family has a right over you. That's what you're going to do it as well. And not only that, the Muslim woman needs me to do this. That's what I want you to intend. The Muslim woman needs me to be a good doctor. They should be good Muslim doctors. You want to be a doctor I think brother honestly honestly speaking of some some, you know, you kind of see see the stats okay of Muslims, Muslims in education. And now the line is quite poor. You know, when you actually look at the stats compared to other religions, other backgrounds aside, but what I want to say to you is, you want to be a doctor, be the best doctor,

00:08:42--> 00:09:17

you want to be an IT consult consultant, be the best one, be the best business manager, be the best person in the media, be the best person whatever you need the best. That's what you should do. You want to be the best. You want to be happy to be the best half of the Quran that can actually stand the ground that everyone is wants to look at the mercy of Allah how what kind of person Mashallah Wakanda is this, maybe this? You know why? Because when you be a half of something, you're a danger to society.

00:09:18--> 00:09:23

When you be a half, you're a danger. Imagine a doctor that never wanted to be a doctor.

00:09:24--> 00:09:29

There are doctors who never wanted to be a doctor. The dad wanted them to be doctors because it was the Indian thing.

00:09:30--> 00:09:36

Every Indian father wanted his son to be a doctor engineer one or the other one you got not that choice.

00:09:37--> 00:09:50

I beat him so how do you go back to India? That's what they will want it so the guy had to become Captain imagine you got a doctor you say you say Doctor, thank you now. I've got this problem. The doctors got a problem himself. He doesn't want to see.

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

Honestly I can imagine you go to a doctor okay and all he is seeing is dollars in his eyes. He don't care about

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

You want to be a good doctor have a heart as a doctor, you know, love people, for the sake of Allah, you have someone come to you with a sick heart, give the best you can Rasulullah sallallahu you can Sahih Muslim, there's a whole section to do, which has to do with medicine. And Allahu Akbar Rasulullah sallallahu no one is someone who's ill, they were sick. He was one of the first to visit them, only visit them Subhana Allah and this is the sign of true Allah manku I really have along this edge today is that when they know that your head they are heard. That's a true doctor. Not only the physical Father, you know, mentally they will be heard just to see an insana human being being

00:10:42--> 00:11:18

hurt. Unit B, a person who's who's in IT security, whatever it is, you be the best, okay? You be the best, even an alum or a scholar of the dean or whatever you're studying, just doing so you become the best, the Muslim Ummah is suffering because we've got people amongst ourselves who not who are not aiming high. Anyway, your Nia is going to be all of this and above all, above all is our law. And be honest with Allah. Allah will not be a good doctor will not be a good consultant when I be a good engineer when I be a good builder. Honestly, we need honest Muslim builders.

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

What do we need?

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

Honest there's only a few

00:11:24--> 00:11:50

forget Muslim builders, other builders as well. There's only a few good builders and a good good plumbers, Mashallah. They're very good. Yeah. Unless they basically mock up your house and then you find out but then you find out then you're in trouble. And don't start all these business. You know, when you go on your mock up someone's house and they say to you, you know, what have you done? You go for your Muslim man, as a Muslim, you're a Muslim. He can't do this mean Muslim, anti muslim man, we got friends that

00:11:55--> 00:12:16

come on you in a trade unit, you're going for a trade, put a law first. Don't use all these Muslim business to try and get out anyway. You put a lot above that our law, I'm going to be a good builder. I'm going to be good technician. And when I do my job, nice. Whatever job it is, I hope to be what Rasulullah sallallahu said a lot.

00:12:18--> 00:12:21

At times, you know saw the Poonam on

00:12:25--> 00:12:31

the wire upon my brothers and sisters at 30 Runa sada to tell me

00:12:34--> 00:13:12

you're a businessman. You're a person who's got a profession you make some money, you make some money and you are honest in your business you're honest in your trade. On the day of gentlemen you wake up and you're not like the Roma, you will not like to prefer to read for the day. You are not like those who preach to layer member you are not like those Mussolini's or those people who went to the masjid, who went five times a day but you are in your business and you are honest, and because of your honesty, just because of your honesty. Rasulullah sallallahu Lessing says that you will be raised with the messengers on the Day of Judgment Sahih hadith of

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

mal ambia so that's what you look at my professional why I'm gonna be honest in my profession, wherever. And I want to be raised with Rasulullah sallallahu Amanda and beyond their judgment and I'm going to go straight because whoever is raised with him, you go straight to Jenna Bismillah you're going straight to Jenna. So anyway, that's what you want. You want return law you want Allah Allah to be pleased with you whatever you do, and honestly you know when you be honest in your trade, listen, you go you go get a business you go you go and get a job somewhere. Now the first thing you don't want to do is go trim your beard a little bit.

00:13:47--> 00:13:50

Sister basically sama god my eyebrows are looking like a man

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

You got the job. Then you pull up this, you watch honesty allow look after love. Look after your, your job. You don't care. Honestly, I will tell you one thing that I found in life myself. When you stick to your ground, like the Sahaba. They stuck to the ground. They stuck to the ground. They said this is who we are. You want to accept us accept us like this. You don't want to accept us. You don't have my risk in your hand.

00:15:00--> 00:15:21

My Risk is going on who's whose hands is risk and birth a lot last name is Rosa he provides so you will you think you're gonna play games with me and in your in my business or in my or professionally I'm an employee you can even play games with me and get me out and I was gonna stop feeding me that Allah that feeds me feed you my my brother Henry

So then the call you you know, my honey,

00:15:43--> 00:15:45

you come to the Christmas party.

00:15:47--> 00:15:47

I think

00:15:49--> 00:15:52

actually, I'm a vegetarian.

00:15:55--> 00:16:01

Okay, fine. But don't worry Mohammed, you don't have to eat all that stuff. You know? I don't think

00:16:03--> 00:16:14

so. Right? You can have orange juice. So you go to the party. And the basically they're gonna say choose with the, you know, Castlemaine forex, you know whatever. You got oranges

00:16:18--> 00:16:26

are you gonna be around alcohol for what are you gonna do that tell them tell them you know, tell them nicely Don't Don't be rude tell them nicely saying that stuff is not good for you.

00:16:32--> 00:16:40

So I see Yeah, but that's that's not good for you. Because when you you don't know the limit. No one knows the limit when they're going to get drunk.

00:16:41--> 00:16:43

Can you tell me when you're going to actually get drunk?

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

Because when you have a little sip authentically

00:16:48--> 00:16:49

Did you take a little SIP

00:16:52--> 00:16:53

trunk

00:16:56--> 00:16:59

and take another sip and next thing you know the guys on top of you

00:17:01--> 00:17:25

Next thing you know you wake up on Boxing Day you don't know what happened after that, you know nine months, three months later you get some pain and you're pregnant. Where did that happen? Where I'm from? So tell him in a nice way that I don't and the thing is in my in my religion I've been told to stay away from this so i'm sorry i hope you guys have a nice time you know in your own time but I'm not going to join this but do come to my empire

00:17:27--> 00:17:35

if you have a nice part in your house you know bring them and show them you know how you have chicken masala no Hello Turkey.

00:17:37--> 00:18:20

I'm doing a nice way So anyway, the point is you're going to go to a to a place Have you right me have the right intention. Next thing is that you're going to knock you've chosen your career make sure you've made the right choice for your career when you may do Rogers what's the right choice? How do you make it two things is to Shara is to her. Before you start taking your you know before you apply to all these courses is to shatter this data you basically consult the people already in those fields. Don't go Matura to you. If you come to me and you're going to say to me Shall I go for this course I want to say what courses is in biochemistry I'm going to say to you okay biochemistry

00:18:21--> 00:18:57

I don't know anything about astonishing anything by when you come to me aka biochemistry go and ask people in that field gone ask them what the people who've been there been through it the people of people who are you supposed to do mushara or do proper consultancy. Other people have that filter gone as the brothers who've already gone through that gone ask the senior person in that course. who's running the course and then that's one thing done. Second thing is you make this the hard one Patriarchate see what what what result Allah gives you. A lot of brothers say to me, I don't see a dream. Don't don't come back to say that I'm going to send you back and I'm going to send you back

00:18:57--> 00:19:38

again. You do a good to records with devotion. For the sake of Allah use have a dream. I've said a lot of brothers back. I've seen sisters back after God do it again. Don't do it again. spend another week. Finally when they've done it properly with devotion Allah will show them some guidance, whether it's true, or something else. But anyway, that's the second so now you've chosen the course you've chosen the natural course. Next thing is what most brothers or most sisters will do is that they're going to go through this course. Right when first first is they've just finished the exams. Something like June end of June. July's here, most brothers most sisters wise is party time. holiday

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

time.

00:19:39--> 00:19:59

Is summertime. Yeah, go out there waste of time is in that place. newco like to like go and hang around you know, whatever it is. Come play these games on the internet whatever browser Nintendo blah, blah, blah, whatever. August goes September goes all the way till October. Then the cool start you have pressure

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

We call it that. It says, okay, let it all start. It'll start and then September comes and he starts, also October comes in and starts, what happens then they take it easy. The crews, they're in cruise control the thing is doesn't matter. So October goes, they've just started the course November goes. And you know, some tests December some coursework is coming by December, January, okay, they're starting to now get a bit serious. next minute they know it by February, then the thick.

00:20:30--> 00:20:30

You know, the

00:20:32--> 00:20:40

big buffer, of course, six exams, six courseworks. Because these, what didn't they tell you in the beginning, the kind of DBA

00:20:42--> 00:20:45

we had September, you had October, you had November,

00:20:46--> 00:21:07

PCs, that the best thing you can do yourself a favor of if you listen to this for the coming year, some of us Mosley is late for you as a policeman, you think oh my god, I wish the city in a few few months back. But don't worry next year, you can listen to this, you can do this. inshallah, what you do is you prepare yourself from day number one, what does that mean?

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

That means I tell you a good book to get. I've used this book. And I used it for my own mother's purpose in my final year. And I've, I haven't stuck to it. Like glue. I didn't follow right down to the tee. But I made my own methodologies I devised my own strategies from by reading this book. And it's a very, it's a very useful book. And I think you guys should read it doesn't matter what you're studying this, this should show you some guidelines of how you should prepare for your exams. The first preparation is Wait, it's not in March, my friends, it's in September, it in August. One of the key things that the Islamic fields they teach you is motala. Then they say more Raja motala

00:21:55--> 00:22:30

udara, Southern Raja three things, they say before you come to the lesson, you must try and read the subject before the teacher even explains it. This is an old Islamic tradition in all the modalities even to today's continuous, you try and work it out yourself. Number one, so your mind is working to try and figure this thing out doesn't matter how complex it is, spend two hours spend three hours on and try and figure it out. Because what that will do is that it's going to make a very good connection with your mind and the subject that you're studying. Number two is mudaraba. When you're in the actual lesson, the teacher will explain it to you that time is now the second time you're

00:22:30--> 00:23:07

going over what most of these universities and college college will do in fact, almost all of them is you just come in the class and you just listen to the lecture. You don't do no preparation beforehand, they give you notes. I know I've been to invest myself most people don't even really before they get there. The third thing you do is Moraga which means you go over your lecture so you have a good good selection group of friends and I want you to do this part of you passing your exam successfully is you have good friends you know good friends are good friends are serious people they like to study they don't want to waste time they don't basically spend all the time on shaadi.com

00:23:09--> 00:23:22

and basically browsing around and seeing who's going to be next to take them beloved you know from the from the miseries out and make them you know a nice pie in the sky. They don't they don't do that they don't sit around you know saying yeah bro what's up

00:23:24--> 00:23:26

because some exam felucca cabana

00:23:30--> 00:23:51

they're not time wasters you go to good friends they're going to be serious about studying okay you can start now when you study with them be serious by studying now divided this book I want to tell you is is a book by Tony Buzan be used that a n is his surname you might think you know what shake is now quoting a non Muslim book

00:23:54--> 00:24:23

said he said Kelly Mahatma he said words of wisdom bar lotto mean they are the last property of a believer yah hoo ha mean hi to her wherever the believer finds it he takes it from there so if you find any non Muslim with a good theory it wasn't his it was us it was an easy was used you know your movement you take all the best studies in the world is yours because you believe in Allah you believe in the one who created that who gave that man that idea? I'm not saying plagiarism. Okay, I'm not saying you know,

00:24:24--> 00:24:41

guys, please don't go to say mom said you know kalama hikmah Dolly was my last property I found I found in the bin and basically, you know, they all those guys threw in the bin. I took it out and I basically wrote it. I mean, you know, copied it, but you know, it's my property. Well, this is mine. I'm Muslim.

00:24:42--> 00:24:59

But anyway, what you do is get that book Tony Buzan book you will you will read that book and in there what you will find is that he will say that you have to bite size, bite size memory by memorization throughout every

00:25:00--> 00:25:18

We day every week every month from the beginning of your studying all the way to the end guys you don't know the power of this because this is actually honest Islamic you know we need to learn how did you do the Quran you don't sit there one day and say I'm going to take the whole of Alif Lam inside

00:25:20--> 00:25:30

you don't do that you start you say that Nikita, Nikita, Nikita Nikita and then and then you try and move the look and

00:25:32--> 00:25:53

you look back into look out again and then you do the next bit bite size bite size you give yourself breaks then what happens is you any person who's memorized inserted would know this you memorize it today. Tell me if this is true or not by tomorrow morning if you memorize the page of the Quran something brand new, or half a page of the Quran by tomorrow morning. You forgotten quite a bit of it yes or no? Yes.

00:25:54--> 00:26:01

Yes See this is normal. This is normal human being that the memory power has got two different modes

00:26:02--> 00:26:37

this totally bizarre book it's got many books okay go go for the water which is used your head is the title of the book is used your head so in that he'll explain to you about the memory itself Okay, if he doesn't explain that he'll explain in use your memory. He's got a second book called use your memory. But don't just buy from Amazon okay? just redo borrow it with each other don't don't go around spending so much money in, you know, buying the bike by buying all these expensive books, just just find it secondhand, whatever, just use the information, but use your head should be enough. That was enough for me. So what you do, what you realize is that the memory is today you've

00:26:37--> 00:27:10

memorized something, you would have known it like 100%, by tomorrow morning, it will drop down to 25% or 30%, which means 25 30% now has possibly gone to your long term memory is going to your long term memory and the 100%. The other 75% you had yesterday was in your short term memory. So you got to take it from your short term memory long term memory signals, you know what the CD ROM CD ROM the whole computer how it works? Yeah, send the human mind mind works like that. So what do you do? Again, you go over again, you say,

00:27:12--> 00:27:54

you go over again, then now you increase the rate of your long term memory with that passage, the next day, you find that it will be up to 45% or 50%, or 60%. Next day, you find the blog to 70% 90 and 100. Each time 100 it drops down to 100,000. But the drop will get higher and higher and higher. So basically, you start off with 25%. And you gradually get to 100%. Finally, you don't have to read the passage every single day, what you will do is after week after week, you come back to your super node. But if you leave it for one month, you would have forgotten if you leave for two weeks you forget it. So what you do is you make yourself small bite sized revision that you go over and over

00:27:54--> 00:28:23

again and again, with key information you need to remember now what I'm saying to you guys is if you're studying maths, if you suddenly economics, what you do is from the beginning of the year, every subject that you do take the keys key parts out, you can make mind maps, which he talks about, but you don't have to you can do all inside here. When I was studying my final year, I had to devise a way of remembering all the physical fit, laughed at remember, in Buddha, what did he

00:28:25--> 00:28:46

say What did my Malik say? What did he say? What did he say? And what was in Sahih? Bukhari Sahih Muslim. So it was a mammoth task. So I devised the thing in my head. This was my personal one, I gave a figure of what I thought was Imam Abu hanifa in my head, and I made all of them come to this little pond on four different corners, or the 40 man

00:28:48--> 00:28:52

who was dressed in green, Mr. Malik dressed in red Imam

00:28:53--> 00:29:28

Ahmed Mohammed dressed in grey, Sharpie dressing cream. So basically, they've all got different colors so I can identify them differentiate and then eat they're having now I create a whole story in my head, where Imam Abu hanifa will say, you know, this is farther than the other one will say no, this is this is the father and this one say okay, this Bismillah you say this is sunanda and it's all going on, I make a little video in my head. But once I've made it, I will play that again and again. play that again. And again. You know what I'm say play again. And again. What I mean by this is that I'm going to play this. I'm going to play this when I'm walking.

00:29:30--> 00:29:35

I'm gonna walk in my eyes are down. I don't need to look at you know, Russell Allison said.

00:29:37--> 00:29:42

He said beware of the world of beware of these women. Because once you look at women

00:29:45--> 00:29:58

what happens is if you just knocked your memory out, seriously, you're not because when the mount Shafi Rahim Allah He went to his is that what do you say? He said, he complained of weak memory to his South Rocky and he says Shaco

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

Check out the lava curious to IV said I went to Monster Bucky. And I said, Man Maki My dad said I am complaining to you about the weakness of my memory farshad and in attacking marassi he told me that

00:30:13--> 00:30:14

Sharjah he said

00:30:17--> 00:30:54

he said you stay away from sin stay away from them. Because what is this? This is finally knowledge is something which is new to me like it's a light from Allah azza wa jal Ooh La, la See, and Allah light is not given to a sinner, one who disobey. This was the the thing that he got. So I will tell you the weakness of memory is what because the biggest thing guys, the biggest thing that you suffer from in your exams is when you get to the exam hall Okay, let's be honest with you. You tried to cram it in for the last month Yes.

00:30:55--> 00:31:29

You guys didn't take exam before the way I'm talking about Mashallah good guys. So they tried to cram it in people who don't do this method to try and cram it in the current climate especially the days before the night before that try and squeeze in like you know, the gun on a holiday they've only got two minutes to pack up. And they've got all these things to take. So this stuffy and he's tough and they started when they go to the airport the minute the minute the guy basically just touches the zip the whole thing pops up like a jack in the box. Right? So the minute you go into the exam hall and you try and remember something everything is all your all your knowledge has gone down

00:31:29--> 00:32:08

is you know I think you might have lost everything right? Why because you did not follow the method which is an old method of trying to take bite sized revisions and is by children when you when you walk in you go over over it when you're eating over eat. This will not allow you to eat your mind should be on the bite size revision. And what he teaches you is that 45 minutes is the extent to how long you can concentrate properly. After 45 minutes he says he's book he says go and do some exercise. Go and do some physical exercise in our case Alhamdulillah if you're doing that to me is I want to please ally with a nice good body Mashallah.

00:32:09--> 00:32:13

Mashallah, good nice good body. muscle man. Yeah.

00:32:15--> 00:32:24

Yeah, why not? Allah has given Allah has given us you know, a nice good thing that you know, some people like that is quite scared of the got a reason to be scared of

00:32:25--> 00:32:35

muscle mass anyway, you're gonna do some weight training, whatever you want to do. Okay, the 15 minutes he doesn't get back. If you're not going to do that, then the best thing to do go and

00:32:37--> 00:32:38

conquer some pressure gone recent

00:32:40--> 00:33:16

honesty, this will help you long term. If you do constant bite size Vicar of a lot during your whole preparation allow the central angels to you? What kind of things should you recite, I will I will tell you that in a little while. So you basically have gone now, you eating you do bite size revision, and then you walk in you do it. And when you get together with your good friends, the only thing you should talk about is this revision. So set certain times. So for five minutes, guys, we're not going to talk about anything else except for studying. And after this, we take a break. Okay, take a break, go around, get some fresh air, talk about whatever you are, come back again and do 45

00:33:16--> 00:33:45

minutes again, go back again, come back 45 minutes again. Yeah, I am telling you like, if you keep this pattern every single day, you're on the bus, you do the same thing your revision is in your mind. And it's all diff not by the time is two months, three months, you've got maps and I had to write this the one of the things he says that you write all these some of these documentations you want you write it in such a way that is unique to your brain in your mind. And you go over it again and again. You will see the thing is like basically if I told you to memorize the London tube map

00:33:46--> 00:34:23

what station comes after what station comes after what station is just like that you make a little map of all your knowledge. And then you start to say okay, this complex contract document if you go over it again and again and again and again. That map will be stuck in your head that's what the people of the Quran do. If you tell me now any page of the Quran, any page of the Quran, you quoted me any verse of the Quran I will tell you inshallah, Allah what surah is it in what does it is in what side of the page in my poor under South African one that I memorize? I'll tell you what side what line what part of it is. I'll tell you that. I don't know how fast they gave it why because

00:34:23--> 00:34:33

they do it over and over and over and over again unless you're a half is basically turabi time come to say Allahu Akbar God these guys gonna know my mistakes are but let's pick up at a do some speedy Gonzalez

00:34:35--> 00:34:42

unless you're one of those hackers right? So you basically do so fast the guy behind you can't keep up with he said What did he say Hakuna Matata.

00:34:47--> 00:34:48

Anyway,

00:34:49--> 00:34:58

so you do by testing if you do every single day you do every single week and your whole month is busy like this. You gotta learn how to say no. Your mom says to you better

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

your cousin getting

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

Madigan impressed and

00:35:02--> 00:35:10

you have to be honest with your time you have to be honest you sometimes just say no, ma'am, I love you. I love my cousin.

00:35:12--> 00:35:13

love myself

00:35:14--> 00:35:20

and I'm gonna fail this if I go out Come on man, you're gonna go shopping one weekend football another day

00:35:22--> 00:35:53

talking about what's gonna happen during the exam you're gonna be sad you're gonna be mincemeat in the in the actual exam itself, you're going to learn how to say no phone calls, this is not Facebook, Twitter, whatever, which just get rid of it my friend honestly you don't need that you want to revise just go face to face sit down properly, take your breaks, and then 15 minutes come back again revise. And then when you go back to your house, you know when you sleep at night and like you should have that revision going in your mind whenever you can, and the breaks will be the vicar of Allah, you break through the Kabbalah so when you do that, I'm telling you that he says in

00:35:53--> 00:36:06

that book and I've done this myself by the end of the year when others will be trying to cram all this information in their heads in over two months. Or one month you know when may comes my god now you don't see the guy

00:36:07--> 00:36:08

who say Hey,

00:36:09--> 00:36:09

are

00:36:10--> 00:36:12

you still alive? He said

00:36:13--> 00:36:21

who was not with us? We should never had this phone line man. I'm gonna cut you man. Any time any time the guy is staying two o'clock in the night Red Bull.

00:36:25--> 00:36:36

Red Bull nice bow tie man now the guy basically his last name who this contact us and that just comes you know the guy basically is getting getting constipation woman conservation woman diarrhea

00:36:38--> 00:36:46

I want to get to the exam hall oh my god boom boom boom boom boom he's walking towards the hole and he gets inside there is killing him to sit down

00:36:52--> 00:37:05

00:37:07--> 00:37:08

00:37:10--> 00:37:16

Because you never prepared for it. Now you want to go and play the games. Alright. So then what happens when it comes out? You know, he's, he's

00:37:18--> 00:37:54

And when the 24th of August comes and his days wants to get his results, some of them go missing. Some of you don't know where they are. They complain at night. Yeah, and what don't want to break the loser didn't know how to break the news a whole lot. Why? Because you never revised at the right time. Tony Buzan says in his book that if you do it the method he said as well as any static method, by the end of the year, what will happen to you is you will, you will be revision time and everyone's revising, you will walk with a head high. You're

00:37:54--> 00:38:05

going to stick to your routine your routine was to do throughout the day and you get good sleep Alhamdulillah you will be able to do that you walk in the exam hall, you're going to see like a mini man party.

00:38:08--> 00:38:11

You're going to feel like a mini human body. I'm not anywhere near

00:38:13--> 00:38:17

my body right? So you can go into the exam hall and you can basically you know be all in there.

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

All those things you put the max you put the formulas you put you're gonna vary so many times it's become second nature you just bring up like that the English words is not the it some certain terminologies, a science list and the hope the chart whatever the whole chart will be able to memorize it all inside the PhD study as a backup you have to just finish it I'm telling you do that. And within that you will come out with a good grade you will come up with a good grade now before you do this, my brothers and my sisters you must remember that your please remember, this is really important.

Not trying to tell you to stop wandering but you use your means, but you put your trust in Allah

00:40:06--> 00:40:14

One has an all this grief of God stress of God myself, you are the one that will remove this from myself. You make it easy for me to bear. And you repeat that if you want to bring calm to someone peace in your mind, send Salawat the purpose of a large sensitive item. In fact, you know in your actual example itself. When you sit in your example and you forgotten something, the best thing for you to remember what you forgotten is you sincerely send salutations on Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Allah will make you remember what you've just forgotten.

00:43:12--> 00:43:50

It's a long Sanjana season odana Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, whichever one you want to say, the many Salawat and Allah azza wa jal will bring it because what happens is what you send Salawat there you are in the example you're sending Salawat on the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the angels take it straightaway and Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam then replies to that and angels come back with 10 minutes is to you 10 minutes is to either come back so that will open you I'm telling you try this try it it will open things for you.

And I put my trust in you. However, you say what one good do are to say, especially for brothers and sisters who think they've had it. All right. If you think all gone, held loose, you think that's it, I'm failing this exam, just sometimes.

00:47:33--> 00:47:35

lucky

00:47:43--> 00:47:52

Milwaukee yamano na na si has

00:47:54--> 00:48:00

won our Milwaukee namun Mona

00:48:01--> 00:48:08

nothing has been allowed me has been a law only a law is enough for me now.

00:48:11--> 00:48:36

One year I Milwaukee the best of those who I can depend upon Nirmal Nola, the best of the Masters the best of Guardian wanyama no see the best of helpers. You think Allah is not going to help you when you say these words? You try and test it out. Test it out brother sister with Eman tesira Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was in the fire

00:48:37--> 00:49:05

when they dropped him in the fire. You know how big this you know how big this fire was? The whole city brought all the different firewood they could. They made the they're gonna make the biggest bonfire they could and that catapulted him right inside there. They weren't able to put him because if you stepped if you stepped on there, you fall straight into the firewall. So that catapulted him inside there. And when he was catapulted in there, and he stood there,

00:49:06--> 00:49:14

you know, jabril came to him. So Jerry alehissalaam came and he said, You're not going to call Allah.

00:49:15--> 00:49:25

One of the things traditionally in Bukhari Sahih Bukhari Muslim said the first thing that he said when he was thrown into the fire is haspin, Allah.

00:49:27--> 00:49:45

Allah is enough for me allies enough. When the Sahaba after the day of the Battle of boyhood, when they lost and people came to them, and they were in the wounds fresh in their wounds, and they had lost a miserable loss in the Battle of Ovid, and people said to them inland cerca de Janeiro

00:49:47--> 00:49:50

people are getting ready to attack you again. have fear.

00:49:51--> 00:50:00

They said what? This facade man the man increased in the hospital Ah, what am I lucky allies in a first in the best best of those items.

00:50:00--> 00:50:28

We can depend upon is Allah Best of the of the old beings that we can depend is the being of who's that mean? It is Allah zone. So if all goes loose what you do is you sit on the masala be very sincere with Allah and you make this gradual again and again and you cry to Allah and you'd be sincere in what you say that our law you are enough. Well I hola quwata illa Rasulullah sallallahu said what is the treasures of one of the treasures of Geminis law?

00:50:31--> 00:51:11

What is that, that nothing can give me that can avert me from any evil nothing has the power to give me good except for you Allah put your full trust in Allah go into the example after you've done you two records and then you sit down there you put your trust in Allah allow the attack will open your mind and He will give you things in that exam that you will be surprised I've been certain exams that you know when when you try to revise whatever and it's gone, all messed up. And then you put your trust in Allah, Allah will help you with Allah will help you. So anyway, one important thing is when you have finished that exam paper,

00:51:12--> 00:51:50

don't start gossiping outside of the example, what did you write for them? What did you write for them? What did you write for them? Because the moment you're going to hear you done something wrong, it's going to eat in your mind, psychologically it will affect you. A lot of brothers sisters, they did something. Now, one will just tell you, I don't want to talk about it. I don't want to I want to prepare for the next test next exam. Why? Because while no one's seen what your test date is, like, you know the best thing you can do now, you go back to the muscle again. You sit down, say Oh Allah, whoever is going to mock my exam.

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

His heart is in your hands.

00:51:57--> 00:51:58

Oh Allah.

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

You know, I love him.

00:52:02--> 00:52:35

And I'm going to do your 10 Allah. Allah will keto fast for you. Allah will give sadaqa Allah will do it and do it. Don't Don't be dishonest, do it. Do you? Do enough of Allah please turn his heart. Make him see good in my paper, nothing wrong with it. If Allah does it for you is Allah's mercy it's not cheating. It's not cheating The best thing you can do go back and I've done this many times.
