And have the relationship with alameen wa salatu salam ala MB mursaleen why Allah Allah He was heavy as rain. Bird and Asana talented from lettuce, I don't know your way the 99 It doesn't matter, I said, and then truly you will be questioned about the comfort that you used to seek in this life. So while I asked myself, our whole existence is based on and is valued by the amount of comfort we have, we are happy or not happy, depending on how

00:00:38--> 00:00:48

how much luxury we have our basis of success. Our criteria of success depends and is based on how much laxity we have.

00:00:50--> 00:00:53

Luxury also is defined as the ability to waste.

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

We have more than we need. And if he if he can just throw it away. And this is considered to be a sign of success. I still remember many years ago, there was this story of his band who finally sank the Barings bank in Hong Kong.

00:01:11--> 00:01:23

That he went to a restaurant and all that everything that there was on the menu, and then told them throw it all in the garbage. And this was a sign that he was a successful man, that he could do whatever he wanted in a lie when

00:01:25--> 00:01:37

you think about this in terms of how we value success, and how we define success, how many of us define success, as doing good? How many of us define success as something that

00:01:38--> 00:01:57

is seen in the smiles of those who were oppressed? How many of us see success, as in seeing in the eyes, or what we see in the eyes of those who are poor, and whose poverty and illness and sickness and difficulties have been removed? Thanks to your efforts, how many of us see success?

00:01:59--> 00:02:46

As on the other hand, as the ability to oppress the ability to take what is out of turn, what is not your ability to force people to do your will? So we have to think about this and say, What is our definition of success? Because the definition of success that we apply this life on this will depend our success in the answer as well. Because if we define success in a particular way, then we will pursue a life of that way. And if that is not the way that Allah has chosen for us, and if it is not the way that pleases Allah, subhanaw taala, then all the items of success of this world will be will become items of grief, in the hereafter. We have our we have the criteria of success. And we have

00:02:46--> 00:02:53

the the labels and badges of success today, all of which are centered around

00:02:54--> 00:03:38

items of luxury, great, bigger cars, bigger, bigger homes, the ability to deliberately disobey Allah subhanaw taala and to take pride in that you take pride in the disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala to belong to organizations which are built on the purpose of defining and disobeying Allah subhanaw taala. And then who honor those people who spend the most money in them and who, who take a lot of effort in being the leaders of such disobedience, and they are given special titles and they're given special places. And we take pride in the fact that we belong to such organizations, we take pride in belonging to the echelons, to the top echelons of such organizations, we take pride in

00:03:38--> 00:04:15

being honored by these organizations, you have to ask ourselves that every single one of those so called honors of this life, by such organizations or by such people who defy Allah subhanaw taala, who disobey Allah subhanaw taala is if nail in our coffin as far as the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala is concerned, and then on the Day of Judgment, it will be not the pleasure of these people, but the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala should matter. Even today it is the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala which matters, it's not the pleasure of these people, even though we are not intelligent enough to see that because it's only with with the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala that

00:04:15--> 00:04:46

true, that true happiness and true success and content can come into our lives. ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it possible for us to lead a life that is obedient to Him, irrespective of who else it pleases or does not please and ask Allah subhana wa tada to make it give us the courage to refuse to obey those who disobey Allah subhanaw taala because there is no obedience to the slave in the disobedience of the master in the disobedience of the Creator. So Allah Allah will kill you while he was iVh may
