Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala ala l mursaleen O Allah Allah He was heavy as
in the light Allah Today we will look at another
parameter for measuring business success see how that applies to
our lives in terms of the
and that is a quality standard called Six Sigma the number six and sigma
Six Sigma was a quality standard that was started by a guy called Michael Harry in Motorola and his definition of quality is very interesting maglite He said if you want to see what somebody values see what they measure,
very interesting statement, he said if you want to see what somebody values see what they measure
and with that statement, he created this quality standard called Six Sigma
together give you an understanding of what Six Sigma is.
Supposing I tell you that I have a business which is 99% good
which means I make one mistake per 100 when making 100 pieces of something,
one piece is faulty
99 are good.
So, do you say this is a good business or bad business?
business I know 99 out of 100 is a good business.
Six Sigma is 3.4 mistakes per million
99 out of 100 is 10,000 mistakes per million
there is a difference.
So if you are flying in a plane and you say these engines are from a business which is 99% good It means that 10,000 mistakes probably
a sixth wise 3.4 mistakes per million that is the measurement standard.
The measurement standard of Allah subhanaw taala is from a well Miss Carla de Ratan Hi,
my name is Carl Lazarus In short,
there is the ultimate of the standard that is every atoms weight of good and bad
will be shown to you.
We are talking about a quality standard which is far higher than even six sigma.
The reason I'm talking about the quality standard is because
in our life in Islam, we have been taught very clearly to measure the quality of what we are doing not only the quantity, and that is why my glory statement is a very important statement. If you look at it from a sonic perspective also said if you see if you want to know what somebody values, see what they measure.
So if you think we will say Time is money,
right is common proverb Time is money, but I tell people time is not money, because you measure money. You know, by the time
we visit, I know we're sitting in some place. I'm not I'm not even talking about the kind of talk Have you sitting in someplace one hour goes
what is the value of that one hour maybe that one hour is extremely important and very valuable because of what you are doing in that one hour or that one hour was a
was neither good nor bad, it was a waste it just got spent or what is worse, that one hour actually earned you sin actually earned new problems because of what you were doing in one hour. So, it can be anything, but time money we measure I mean if 10 rupees falls out of your pocket, you know that 10 rupees is gone if 100 rupees falls out of your pocket, none of us needs 100 rupees, but if you lose 100 rupees, even if it is 100 rupees we lost and we know alhumdulillah is not something we need, but still there will be some you know bad taste in the mouths that are lost 100 rupees, right even though you you may act you may and we in today's world we actually spend far more than that.
But when you spend deliberately you are doing it deliberately you're spending a little bit is lost is lost and you feel you know something regret some amount of regret about something you've lost. So money we measure but time we don't measure
as I said yesterday, I don't know how many of you did that homework. I don't do think about we talked about return on capital employed roce and I told you measure for the whole day. What did you do in the whole day.
You want to you want to measure return on capital employed was a very simple
This capital What did you do with the capital right so the whole day are you 24 hours of capital we had what did we do with this 24 hours Where did we spend it? We know we spent about one and a half hours yesterday in Dharavi here in Salah okay that we know are the two hours from 830 to 1030. We spent two hours in Salah inshallah, so, Angela that you all what about the other 22 out of 24 only two we account for what about the other 22.
So, but we have to measure who Allah subhanaw taala said Allah did not say we will show you something specifically every atoms which
right? See the focus on excellence and quality measurement. And that is why whenever Saracen was asked in the visuals heavy legibility Salaam
to describe a son, what did he say?
And that would allow Ghana Katara for
oka mokulele salat wa sallam, he said to worship Allah as if you are seeing him. Now what is the higher quality than that
there is no higher quality that that is the ultimate of quality when you are worshiping Allah subhana wa tada as if you are seeing him are you standing in front of me I'm seeing is no higher quality than that. But that is the quality level that is described by Mr. rossano. He said if you don't see him obviously, we do not see him know that he is seeing you
in a way, if you think about this, this think about this health in a way, the second is more difficult than the first.
The second is more difficult than the first is easy if Allah subhanaw taala actually, if he can see Allah then obviously you will be if you see Allah How can you do anything wrong with the sight of Allah alone will is enough to give
give up very firmly on the straight and narrow without any without any deviation, right? But
you do not see Allah but know that he sees you is actually an even higher quality standard, it's much more difficult, because you don't see a lot smarter. So, to keep this thought constantly in the mind, Allah subhanaw taala is watching me real time he is listening to me real time what I was what I'm saying he knows the thoughts in my mind and so on. So, to remember that and to act in our life according to that thought is actually more difficult.
But that is the standard set for us.
So, we have to remind myself when you let us try to bring this and implement this into our life everyday which is let us measure what we do.
Because as we said, what you value is what you measure what you don't measure you don't value.
If you valued it, you would measure it right. So if you if we value time, we will measure time. If we value our speech, we will measure this speech is this speech good or bad? What is it doing for me? If we value our relationships with people, we will measure them How is this relationship of yesterday this person was my friend today is in some way better? Or what? If we value our bar that if we value our worship, we will measure the quality of this worship? How is my Salah by salata further today, how is it better than my circle for the last yesterday? How is my surgical father better than whichever Salah I prayed before that?
If you don't we do this in don't we should we should be doing this in our in business we do it in business, any serious business does this actual measurement from a incident by incident basis?
Every business I mean I do business consulting is what we do measure it, period by period by period. And and actually see if you Why do you measure it to see is improving or going backwards what you're doing? And if you find that you are going backwards and obviously you are concerned. So in terms of our event that if we value our worship,
you might say well how can I not value worship? If you're valuing worship, you should be measuring it. If I asked you how is your quality of Salah different from the time you and I were children to the time when now we have children and our children have children?
Is there a difference? No one can Nevada parchment gave us
what we were praying when we were a child and what do you bring now in 55 years old, there's no difference. James Allah similarly delivers in Quran is there a difference when I used to learn or whenever I was a child or whatever between that time and how I read the Quran today is there a difference or is m
same mistakes? Same? You know?
We are debating?
Is there a difference? How much are and do I know?
How many? How many surahs did I know as a child? How many surahs do I know today
Is there a difference? There many of us we knew three surahs when we began and we do a lot in the day we die, we only know those features and all those things whereas Mashallah we decide the wrong anila.
So where is this, where is the value for the worship?
We have to measure, I don't want to make a whole list of all the things we should measure, I think the message is clear. We need to measure what we do. If we want, if we really value that thing, and if we don't value it, then obviously we will not get the benefit of it because you obviously can't do the perimeters of the Rhone Valley.
And that's why I remind myself let us keep this maximum in our minds to say,
if you want to see what somebody values, see what they measure, and let us apply that in our own lives and say, if I say I value this Dino mine, then what do I measure in this deep for value? Allah subhanho wa Taala then what is my measurement to see how this value showing itself valuable So now, what am I doing with this honor, if I value something,
I buy that or whatever else in my life, which I say I value, how is this manifesting itself in our lives to see how am I measuring it, what is my measure for this?
And how do I benchmark that against what and we see that inshallah, later on or some of the Highlander will Karim Allah He was I will make erotica.
