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

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

00:00:45--> 00:00:51

Yeah Ul levena mano de la Tato Patty wala Muto nyla. One Two Muslim one.

00:00:55--> 00:00:59

My dear brothers and sisters Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:01:03--> 00:01:07

In sha Allah today, we will complete the lecture we started last tomorrow,

00:01:09--> 00:01:12

which is when the journey is the destination.

00:01:13--> 00:01:20

And last time I gave you some homework and anyone remember what the homework was? Am I not asking you to do it? How do you even remember it?

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

What was over?

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

Where are you? Where?

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

Where are you going?

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

means what?

00:01:34--> 00:01:47

Right, in terms of our life, where is my life taking me and I request you to think about this to reflect on it? And to write down something right? Yes, right down to get

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

it right. You're thinking about writing.

00:01:53--> 00:02:34

Thinking about working doesn't make What happened? What happens if you work? work doesn't happen by thinking about work. Right? So my suggestion is, at least now, do it. Reflect on this, Allah Subhana Allah? And in the Quran, financial heaven? Where are you going? And that's what we asking ourselves, I'm asking myself, I'm asking you to ask yourself, where are you headed? Where are you going? Because unless we ask this question, how can we make a change of direction if it is necessary? Right? I'm not saying necessarily that everyone has to change direction, no, maybe unreliable in the right way. That's all power to you. But is that a measurable fact or not?

00:02:36--> 00:02:57

In my other incarnation, I teach, among other things, Six Sigma quality at GE and other places. And one of the famous Six Sigma sayings of the guy who invented that quality standard called Michael Harry from Motorola, Michael Harris said if you want to see what people value, see what they measure.

00:02:58--> 00:03:08

He said, If you want to see what people value, see what they measure. We all have heard of the saying, time is money. Yes. But obviously time is not money because we don't waste money, but we waste time.

00:03:10--> 00:03:18

So we say Time is money, but it's in fact not money. I mean, we have no value for time, all the time is a non renewable resource.

00:03:19--> 00:03:25

Time is a non renewable resource. Money is a renewable resource, money can come and go. But time doesn't come and go time only goes one way

00:03:26--> 00:03:37

doesn't come back. Right. We had the longest lifespan the day we were born. And then we had a stopwatch which is running backwards. And then one day it will go ping

00:03:40--> 00:04:26

and that is how most people say so and so died an untimely death. There is no such thing every death is timely. Every single death is there's no such thing as an untimely you know untimely death, the time of death is defined it is specified it is specific and it does not change. What is ah Lu la esta hirasawa stop the moon Allah subhanaw taala said, when the time of death comes, it is neither extended. Nor is it nor is it brought forward. Law is stuck around there is no Taki there is no extension of that. Well, I stuck the bone and there is no bringing it forward. It won't happen before its time It won't happen after it's time. There is a specific time of death for everyone it

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

is written for everyone.

00:04:29--> 00:04:37

And that's why we have to take stock for ourselves and say, especially since we don't even know how much more time is left.

00:04:38--> 00:04:47

That would be rather nice, I suppose but I don't know maybe it is not nice because I suppose you know, I'm going to die on the 20th of October 2012 which is like you know how many days 15 days from now?

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

I can say I would still be delivering this whole by inshallah.

00:04:53--> 00:05:00

But what else would I be doing? I mean, if I had that thing hanging on my head, I have a date then maybe

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

It will affect my life so I just kept it hidden is okay live as if you were living forever, you know, enjoy yourself and so on. Nothing wrong with that but follow the rules. And the rules are for our own benefit. It doesn't harm Allah it doesn't benefit Allah whether we do something good or bad. Allah subhana wa Jalla Jalla Allah who was Samad Lamia live

00:05:20--> 00:05:33

the fact Allah subhanaw taala whether we worship if we don't worship, Allah is not dependent on anyone for anything is all the rules are for our benefit, if we follow the rules is good for us if we don't follow the rules is bad for us in the dunya well as both places

00:05:34--> 00:05:39

and that's the reason why I requested you take stock of your life.

00:05:41--> 00:06:03

I want to backtrack or half a page in my hotbar which is to look at the issue of perspective. And I mentioned to you that earlier this year I was in Namibia and the Etosha National Park Etosha is part of the Okavango Delta, which is, which extends from Botswana all the way into Namibia. And it is the flattest place in the world that I've ever seen. Absolutely, like a tabletop.

00:06:04--> 00:06:20

Absolute like a tabletop. And I mentioned to you that I found just one tree, the whole place, I just want one tree and that, or at least the part I saw when I console plays is huge. But part I saw I just saw one tree and I that one tree was so important that I took a photograph of that tree. That's

00:06:22--> 00:06:36

what See, why is that important? Why am I talking about flat places because without perspective, you get lost in a flat place. If you just start walking, trying to find direction, you will just go around and around in circles, and you perish.

00:06:38--> 00:07:15

Right? Now, if you don't want to perish, you have to find a high spot climber tree, find some outcropping rock or something hillock and look for direction. And the ability therefore to be able to see two pictures simultaneously in your mind where I am now. And where I want to go. This ability is what we call perspective. Without perspective, it is impossible to have direction. perspective is a condition of direction. And as I explained to you, if somebody calls you now and says, I need to come to this module, where is it? How do I get here? What would you ask him?

00:07:16--> 00:07:23

Where are you? Where are you because unless the person tells you where he or she is, you cannot possibly even give directions.

00:07:25--> 00:08:06

And if they if they don't know where they are then minimum you can say all right, wherever you are, get to gvgmall and from gvgmall do such and such. Right? So go ask somebody you tell them some well known spot and you say we'll get to that Krishna or something which is in well known spot, and then you say from there, this is the direction. But without having a starting point without knowing where we are, it is not possible to tell you where to go. And the same thing applies in life. If we don't know where we are, if we have not taken stock of our own life to say where am I in terms of my life, then it's impossible to start to chart a goal. It's impossible to have a strategic pathway, and so

00:08:06--> 00:08:19

on and so forth. That's very important, therefore to do that, and that's why this was the homework I gave you last week to say, please take stock of your life sit down and write it down. Where am I? Where do I want to go?

00:08:21--> 00:08:42

And where am I headed? And then look at your own life and say, if this is where I am, and if this is where I want to go? then whatever I'm doing in my life, your job, your career, your daily activities, and so on. What do you have important? What is not important? your priorities? Are they taking you in that direction? Or are they taking you somewhere else?

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

Yes, remember we are we cannot stop. Life is a journey. And the journey is it's like it's like standing on a moving walkway. Right, the road is moving, you got you got to stop even even if you stop, you're still moving. So if you don't want to be on this moving walkway, I don't know if you have been to any of the International Airport, by the way or something. If you see any of the international airports, they have the moving walkways, right. Now if you get onto the wrong walkway, then you go in the opposite direction. So if you find I'm going here and my gait is going that way, then what you do you get off this walkway. And you get onto the other one.

00:09:21--> 00:09:57

Right. You can't say well, I let me sit here somehow this gate will come get will not come there's no somehow if you're going in the opposite direction, then you have to change. Change direction. Right. And that is the reason why it's very important for us. And that's why I said the journey is the destination. It's not the end, the end just in the journey itself is a destination and that journey we have to be able to manage this journey, in a way which is beneficial for us. Now, perspective comes from studying history. And by history. I don't mean the stories of kings. Because that's unfortunately how we are taught history. That's the worst way of learning is to the learning

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

history is to ask

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

ourselves, what did we learn from that story?

00:10:04--> 00:10:18

And that's very important, because otherwise, just the stories by themselves have, you know, add the most of entertainment value, but beyond that they have no, it makes no sense. studying history is to understand the meaning of this history and say, Where has this history? Where is it taking me?

00:10:19--> 00:10:21

What is this history? Right?

00:10:23--> 00:11:04

Sadly, the way history is taught in our schools and colleges and so on, is pretty worthless, because it doesn't they nobody focuses on the stories, we focus on dates, and we say, who was born and on what day? And what happened. And that's kind of pointless. What does it matter who was born on which day? The key thing is to say, what did we learn from this, and that doesn't happen. And we have we know from our history, the whole issue of the issue of divide and rule and so on, which is how this country this country was colonized from, literally the 1200 or 1300, onwards, all the way down to the 1900s. So you're looking at close to six or 700 years or seven centuries of

00:11:05--> 00:11:56

colonization by various people in the world. But to this day, if you look at modern current events and current politics in India, you can say that we learnt any lesson from 700 700 years of, of history. Now, therefore, the first cognitive tool that we need is perspective and second cognitive tool. We need to conceptualize solutions. This is a bit more complex, and it has two related issues. One is recollecting data from the past. And second one is conceptualizing your path going forward. Now, facts, facing facts is never easier, whether it's facing facts in terms of our history, meaning history of the collective, or whether it's facing facts, in terms of individual personal history,

00:11:56--> 00:12:27

facing facts is never easy, right, we always like to justify the stances that we have taken in life. And that is the most stupid thing to do. most stupid thing. There is no sense whatsoever, as I told my my other incarnation is business development. And in that I teach people what do I teach people, I teach them how to run businesses. And one of the first thing I tell them is don't throw good money after bad. Just because you took a bad decision once doesn't mean that you have to support it by throwing good money after bad, cut your losses, kill it, before it kills you.

00:12:28--> 00:12:51

Kill it before it kills you, it will kill you, believe me, it will kill you, you throw enough money behind it, it will kill you. So if you find that you took a wrong decision, or maybe you took the decision with all the best intentions in the world, and so on and so forth, but you are not able to live, you are not alone. So how are you supposed to correct? Me You made a mistake. But now you know, you made a mistake, do not deny that fact, don't go into denial makes no sense whatsoever.

00:12:52--> 00:12:57

And if you go into denial, it doesn't change facts. If it's a bad decision, or a bad disease, it will kill you.

00:12:58--> 00:13:09

And that's the perspective of looking at. That's why I say facing facts is never easy. There's a wonderful saying which says that not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed unless it is fixed.

00:13:11--> 00:13:25

Not everything which is faced can be changed. But not but nothing can be changed, unless it is fixed. And that's why the stage of facing facts is the foundation of the whole exercise of making sense of our own past.

00:13:26--> 00:14:07

The method I teach for some of you who have been to the LSE, we teach that in that in that program, where we asked you to draw a storyboard of your life, from your earliest memories to right where you are and say, well, where did my life take me? So we draw these diagrams or draw these pictures? And then we try to extract the learnings from that and we say, what are the thresholds of my life? Which are the key decision points that I that I faced? What kind of decisions did I take? Did they pan out? Did they not pan out? Did I or did I hit gold right dirt What happened? And from this, then we move forward, that and we move forward and we it gives us some sense of direction.

00:14:09--> 00:14:33

In terms of where we go, once the lecture is over, you will have this whole text on the on the website, download it, read it for all the details. Now, one of the things that has happened to the Muslims as a oma as well as to individuals May Allah forgive us and protect us is a copout strategy which I call blaming.

00:14:35--> 00:14:45

So we have gone into this. This is the this is the typical slave mentality. This is this is the mentality of losers. And that is that we export blame.

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

So if you say well, you know how come you suck? How come your business sucks and everything about you sucks. z what is not my fault? It's that person's fault. Right? Is the fault of America. It's the fault of the Jews are the fault.

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

The BJP are always somebody else. It's always somebody as the fault lies somewhere else.

00:15:07--> 00:15:17

I'm innocent. I'm faultless, absolute stupidity. This is complete nonsense. This is absolute nonsense. And this is a sign of people who are losers.

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

One of the things I teach is my theory of master and victim. This is a very typical victim stance that individuals take that nation stick and has nothing to do with your wealth, nothing to do with how much money you have nothing to hide power you have, there are instances historically of nations who have been the most powerful nation in the world, but they have always had a victim stance. And whatever happens to them is always somebody else's fault. Not because they didn't have that they had the money, they had the power they had the weapons they had the government, they had the influence, but they always were in what we call victim thinking.

00:15:57--> 00:16:13

And the single most important and the single most distinguishable feature of victim thinking is blaming others. And my submission to my brothers and sisters, that is where we are today as Muslims and May Allah protect as many of us are there today as individuals.

00:16:14--> 00:16:55

If you are interested in progress, if you are interested in doing something about your life, the first thing you need to do is get out of this victim stance. It is not anybody else's fault. It is our the power to change destiny has been given into our own hands. Allah subhanaw taala and when you come to the lectures inshallah we will have the lectures again this weekend, Saturday and Sunday. When we come to the part on other, I will explain this to UNC How is it that Allah has given destiny into our own hands? The other day, somebody sent me a very nice little quote, and this little quote was this child who is making the law and saying, oh, Allah, if you already wrote my destiny, why

00:16:55--> 00:16:56

must I make dua?

00:16:58--> 00:17:08

Right, if you already wrote my destiny, why must I make dua and the court says Allah subhanaw taala replies and says that maybe somewhere in that destiny, I said, whatever you ask,

00:17:14--> 00:17:31

I will, this is not the Parana so don't hold me to it. But I'm saying that this is also inshallah, this is also our understanding of destiny as our Islamic understanding of destiny is this, the Allah subhanaw taala has given certain parts into our control, that is why we have that is why there is punishment and reward because the str is given to us.

00:17:32--> 00:18:07

The difference between the Aikido asuna and the Akira Akira of the other area and the jabariya people who believe that we are much more mass that you know, they were it was it was, it was a thief is stealing, then he is forced to steal. This is our This is a blame on Allah subhanaw taala you first forced me to steal, then you chop my hand what kind of thing is this? Is this is this the justice? justice? Obviously, Allah subhanaw taala is not injured, not unjust. And therefore, Destiny is given into not everything you didn't choose to be born you will not choose to die. But what happens between the birth and the death and lots of stuff in that which is given into our own hands,

00:18:07--> 00:18:21

but we have to take charge of that. If you are not going to take charge of that if you are going to spend our lives blaming the rest of the world, believe me, life will end one day, whether we blame someone whether we own responsibility or not, life will end.

00:18:24--> 00:18:26

But the question is, what do we leave behind?

00:18:28--> 00:18:33

When you are gone? What do you leave behind? In the Bible, there is a guy called Matthew Salah.

00:18:34--> 00:18:42

And there's a wonderful quote which says Matthew Salah lived for 950 years, but all that they could say about him was that he died.

00:18:45--> 00:18:50

That's not a particularly great obituary to leave behind. Who was our big? Well, we don't know, but he died.

00:18:52--> 00:18:57

What's the point of living like that, you know, that's like living like a cow or something, you know, what I want your cow died,

00:18:58--> 00:19:00

we converted into beachtek

00:19:01--> 00:19:28

makes no sense. Let us let us let us elevate ourselves. Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala has elevated us don't lower yourself down to as well as affiliate. And this, Tamara now as I've gone back into the worst, why? Because of our behavior. So we have to take charge of our life. And the first two of that is reflect on your own history. So last week, I told you to do something. What was that? Where are you going? What is your goal? Where is your life taking you

00:19:29--> 00:19:36

this week, reflect on your history, look back at your own life, draw those diagrams, draw the life goal map and

00:19:37--> 00:20:00

reflect on this and say what are the thresholds in my life? What are the key decisions that I took in from my earliest childhood till today? What are the thresholds what were the decisions and then go a step further and say, what were the choices that were available to me? What if instead of this decision I had taken the other decision, another option which was available to me, but I

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

Didn't take it. But if I had taken that option, where would that have led me? This is not so that you go into a state of depressions Oh my God, I wish I had done No, I'm saying going forward, the same same choices are available to us. Today we are sitting here, whatever life is in ahead of you. There are always choices, which is the best choice? How do we pick this best choice and that is the key in this in this whole matter. As I said, those of you who came to the Elysee, we did this thing for you in July when we have the ADC again, come. And we'll do that. But meanwhile do it for yourself. At the end of the day, it is your life. So you got to work for it. Once you do that, then

00:20:35--> 00:20:54

create a strategic roadmap, which will give you ideas about what are the milestones? How do I measure my progress? As I said, what you value measure to value a life measure it? What are the timelines? How do I measure progress going forward? And what are the resources that I need in this journey going forward?

00:20:55--> 00:21:33

resources, remember is not only money, resources is first and number one resources Dan omala. What is my dialogue with Allah subhanho wa Taala? What do I need to do to improve and develop this dialogue better? Number one, number two, resource is your own behavior, your own ethics, your own values, your own morals, your own integrity? How do you change that, please do not live in a state where you believe that your actions do not affect your life. Every single action affects every good deed has an effect, every evil deed has an effect in this life itself, I'm not talking about the other and the other from Allah that is a different matter in this life itself, it has an effect. So

00:21:33--> 00:21:44

let us look at that. And then third thing is resources in terms of course of money, if there is a if it is a project that involves that also very important resource in terms of our relationships.

00:21:45--> 00:21:52

We are a people who have got used to using people, we use people, and then we throw them away like toilet paper.

00:21:54--> 00:22:26

Yes. Believe me people have memories, people will not people are they don't go they don't have amnesia, because of what you did, right? If you use somebody, believe me, that person remembers that. And not only will he or she remember that they will take it to the grave. And while you are sleeping, they will be making dua against you. And they will tell the whole world and his wife what you did with them. And if you think that this will not affect you negatively, then you are on a trip smart stop smoking pot or whatever you're smoking because that's where you are, you're somewhere you know.

00:22:28--> 00:22:57

Seriously, we have to look at our relationships, we cannot have relationships, the way we have relationships. today. I'm talking generally speaking, my experience of people and I'm generally speaking of how Muslims behave, May Allah forgive us. This is a real, real, real problem. There's no sense of loyalty to anybody. There's no sense of honor. There's no sense of a takeaway use people as long as the person is useful for you. You know, make make much of him.

00:23:03--> 00:23:22

make much of this person but the minute you find that the person disagrees with you or for some reason you find the person is no longer useful. junk in the garbage. You think you put them in the garbage they have not run into any garbage they have gone into now the collection of people that you are creating, who are working against you.

00:23:24--> 00:23:37

Seriously, I'm telling you my in my business in my management consulting business with Elijah Al hamdu, lillahi Rabbil aalameen for the last 15 years or more, I have never made a single cold call.

00:23:38--> 00:23:44

Not one single cold call. I have never mailed one single brush I don't even have a printed brochure.

00:23:45--> 00:23:52

I have never written one single letter to anybody with regard to my business. Why? Because my customers work for me.

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

I've got a whole lot of people across the world who are rooting for me.

00:24:01--> 00:24:07

So I get new business every year I get new business how did I How did you know for me because so and so told us

00:24:09--> 00:24:10

because so and so told us?

00:24:11--> 00:24:21

Doesn't happen this 28 years of conscious working? no accident. No accident. I don't I don't use people I don't junk people.

00:24:23--> 00:24:27

I have got more than 2000 phone numbers in my phone. Why?

00:24:30--> 00:24:50

I call people I talk to people I write letters. I share material freely. People many people criticize me they say you are a trainer. You are a management consultant. And if we go to your website, we can download almost everything free. We go to another website we can we can download videos free. This is your raw material.

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

This is like Microsoft giving away you know computers or something. You got all these meals. Bill Gates is giving Bill Gates even nothing y'all are big gifts.

00:25:03--> 00:25:17

All stuff available free just before I came to the gym and somebody, one of these principles of one of the Muslim schools in South Africa emailed me, I've got to do this lecture. Can you send me some slides, I sent him three or four complete presentations.

00:25:18--> 00:25:26

I don't know how many of you or even how many of you can even appreciate what I mean by a complete presentation. Try and make one try and make one slide.

00:25:28--> 00:25:29

I sent him for

00:25:31--> 00:25:37

neither he nor any of his students is ever going to be a client of mine. I can give it to you in writing.

00:25:38--> 00:25:42

There are 1012 year old kids while they grow up, I be dead and gone.

00:25:43--> 00:25:47

Why do I do it? Because the world is round. What goes around comes around.
