00:08:14--> 00:08:15

when we

went to high school

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

when

00:08:25--> 00:08:26

when

00:08:27--> 00:08:28

I'm sorry.

00:08:43--> 00:08:44

Yeah the

00:08:52--> 00:08:53

the Obamas assistance.

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

Today we're gonna have

00:08:59--> 00:09:03

life actually as part of our Friday night program.

00:09:07--> 00:09:08

And it just hit me that

00:09:11--> 00:09:15

the topic that he chose to three weeks ago

00:09:16--> 00:09:18

is titled reflections

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

from swords

00:09:23--> 00:09:27

which translates into a key or the key

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

key

00:09:30--> 00:09:31

chapter

00:09:32--> 00:09:34

18 in particular,

00:09:36--> 00:09:42

which we have decided every Friday or we are encouraged by processing of three sites every Friday.

00:09:43--> 00:09:48

This sewer up this chapter is full of stories and lessons.

00:09:50--> 00:09:53

Very interesting stories and lessons

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

and there are many lessons that can be drawn from the syrup many lessons

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

By the way, just like, it is the case with the entire program. This is one of the stores

00:10:07--> 00:10:08

that

00:10:09--> 00:10:11

prove the truthfulness of profit.

00:10:14--> 00:10:23

There was no possibility whatsoever for the profits, you know the details of those stories, without someone informing him, that one has to be a lofty goal.

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

But besides that,

00:10:29--> 00:10:41

you'll come and show on and I urge you to come and join us tonight, bring your family we have interesting family night program here for the youth. And for the adults. I urge you to come and join us tonight

00:10:44--> 00:10:53

we've been having a steady level of participation, I thought that it will increase who will become more interested, everybody's talking about the Friday night program.

00:10:58--> 00:11:02

But what got my attention, we only think that occupied to

00:11:04--> 00:11:04

mention

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

is the story of the cave itself. I'm not going to go into the details.

00:11:14--> 00:11:17

But I want you to reflect upon the fact

00:11:20--> 00:11:30

that a few young men who embraced faith in a wise way that they believe in the Lord. They were living in

00:11:32--> 00:11:33

a pagan society

00:11:36--> 00:11:38

where people will associate others with oma.

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

They decided

00:11:43--> 00:11:48

to open their hearts to embrace faith in Allah.

00:11:49--> 00:11:54

But they knew that they were swimming against the curves.

00:11:56--> 00:11:57

They knew that

00:11:59--> 00:12:02

the members of the society and the king would not let them

00:12:03--> 00:12:04

worship freely.

00:12:06--> 00:12:14

And then we're going to be persecuted. So they thought to themselves, what is most precious? What should we do in this case,

00:12:16--> 00:12:24

and they decided to go and seek refuge somewhere where no one will put them under pressure that might cause them

00:12:26--> 00:12:30

to lose their faith. They were so protective of their faith

00:12:32--> 00:12:34

of what's makes them who they were.

00:12:36--> 00:12:41

What made them who they were their identity, they wanted to preserve their faith.

00:12:42--> 00:12:44

And they chose to go to a clean

00:12:45--> 00:12:46

slate

00:12:47--> 00:12:49

basically to clean

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

preserve their meat

00:12:53--> 00:12:54

to preserve their faith.

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

This is how precious it was.

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

Brothers and sisters

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

live has many rooms,

00:13:06--> 00:13:07

many dimensions.

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

The other day I was

00:13:12--> 00:13:16

watching some training video

00:13:19--> 00:13:21

on financial management.

00:13:22--> 00:13:25

And now they're talking this is pretty much repeated everywhere.

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

They're talking about

00:13:31--> 00:13:36

not being consumed by the physical aspects of life and paying attention to the other

00:13:38--> 00:13:45

most critical and most effective aspects of life. And this particular person

00:13:48--> 00:13:56

was actually a coach a PhD. And he was talking about how there are four dimensions or four

00:13:57--> 00:13:59

aspects of life, he will show us

00:14:01--> 00:14:02

the mental aspect,

00:14:04--> 00:14:08

the spiritual aspect and the physical.

00:14:09--> 00:14:11

And he will talk about how

00:14:12--> 00:14:14

the other three the first three aspects

00:14:15--> 00:14:16

are invisible.

00:14:17--> 00:14:20

The one that is visible is the physical aspect.

00:14:22--> 00:14:34

The one that people measure their success with is the physical aspect. However, what controls the physical aspect and the will the well being of the physical aspects are the other three invisible aspects.

00:14:36--> 00:14:51

So if you really want to succeed in life, if you want to become rich, he was saying then focus on the invisible aspects of life. balance them, fulfill them and then you will enjoy the physical asset

00:14:52--> 00:14:54

and you will succeed in the classroom.

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

Now

00:15:05--> 00:15:06

Now that

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

we have our assets, the promise of a one party

00:15:13--> 00:15:13

in

00:15:17--> 00:15:19

a lot of detail is not examine your

00:15:21--> 00:15:24

images, your features,

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

or your property into physiques.

00:15:28--> 00:15:32

That's not what you should be obsessed you're consumed with.

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

Take care of it and maintain it.

00:15:39--> 00:15:48

Appreciate it. But don't let it become your first priority. Don't focus so much on it, and forget what really matters to us a panel with

00:15:49--> 00:15:50

which you will be judged by

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

whatever

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

era

00:15:56--> 00:16:01

exams and looks at the state of your heart, and your actions, your deeds,

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

your deeds.

00:16:05--> 00:16:07

So now we're talking about success in this life.

00:16:10--> 00:16:12

And that success will not take place.

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

So called invisible absence of life.

00:16:19--> 00:16:28

What controls those aspects of Fine Brothers and Sisters is none other than what we have been talking about for the past few weeks. Your belief system,

00:16:29--> 00:16:33

your faith, your values, your principles.

00:16:36--> 00:16:42

That's what determines, and that is what controls the well being of your emotional,

00:16:43--> 00:16:46

mental, and

00:16:47--> 00:16:48

spiritual well being.

00:16:51--> 00:17:12

I remember what I said about Islam and coming up with those rules and regulations, not to restrict our lives or to make our lives miserable, or to make a wise heart, but rather to preserve our lives, and to preserve the necessities of life. And remember how we covered five last week, and I said, the most important, the most critical

00:17:13--> 00:17:14

is the first one,

00:17:16--> 00:17:23

preserving your being your faith, your principles, your values, because they make the control,

00:17:24--> 00:17:29

they pretty much affect the well being of the US.

00:17:30--> 00:17:39

Those young men, and the story of the people of the cave, escaped to achieve to preserve this aspect of their lives. The most precious,

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

the most critical.

00:17:45--> 00:17:47

Brothers and sisters, if we don't pay attention to this part,

00:17:49--> 00:17:52

early on, especially when raising children.

00:17:54--> 00:18:01

Don't wait until they're 1415. Or they when they go to high school, they feel like oh, their future might be at risk

00:18:03--> 00:18:09

of this behavior, all this lack of motivation was started early on.

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

And as an example, as

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

I got you a headache,

00:18:17--> 00:18:22

and I think that we should all memorize know get to know this heavy and teach it to our children.

00:18:26--> 00:18:30

This heavy, which is part of the story related

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

by the targets of these words,

00:18:35--> 00:18:36

himself.

00:18:39--> 00:18:43

The subject in this hurry is the one that really impressed.

00:18:44--> 00:18:48

And he turned out to be one of the greatest figures in our history.

00:18:50--> 00:18:52

The ultimate reference in

00:18:53--> 00:18:56

teaching and meanings of the program

00:18:59--> 00:19:02

in practice, because of the problem, so a lot of body

00:19:05--> 00:19:10

recalls when he was a young man who would talk to someone while it was said that took him

00:19:12--> 00:19:16

he gave him a ride and he was riding behind the property. So a lot of it was

00:19:17--> 00:19:22

I was riding behind the Prophet, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:19:27--> 00:19:29

And then he turns to him and he says, Yeah,

00:19:30--> 00:19:32

he started a conversation with a

00:19:34--> 00:19:48

young boy and by the way means someone under 10 years old, is usually used for someone under 10 years old. And this shows you how early on one has to start. He didn't say the property they say oh, he's too young.

00:19:51--> 00:19:53

know he shared a very serious

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

statement with him very important word of advice in a way that he can relate to he got

00:20:00--> 00:20:17

Notice all he connected with him. He took them with at the end of a ride behind him. People used to compete people used to a lot of a lot of it was similar. But the process and again, this privilege and honor to this young man to inspire him.

00:20:18--> 00:20:20

And then he didn't ignore him the whole time.

00:20:22--> 00:20:24

Listening to his favorite radio station,

00:20:27--> 00:20:32

and knowing that they might know, but he started a conversation with him.

00:20:34--> 00:20:48

He himself attention, he paid him some attention. He made him feel important. He recognized his presence. He didn't wait until he gets he got in trouble. And then he started lecturing him. No, he was

00:20:50--> 00:20:56

young man, young age, they arrived. Pay attention to me, he started a conversation with him.

00:20:57--> 00:20:58

And then he said,

00:21:01--> 00:21:02

in your

00:21:03--> 00:21:06

shop tissue statements, words, some words of advice.

00:21:10--> 00:21:13

Remember them commit to them. They're very important.

00:21:16--> 00:21:20

very concise, very short. He said to him, be mindful of a lot.

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

Be mindful of the law. And the law will preserve your protection. preserve a lot of the teachings of the law in a model of preserving preserve your commitment to a law and among preserve it.

00:21:37--> 00:21:44

And here we started with something positive. He didn't say a word to you don't do this. If you do this, a lower punish you.

00:21:46--> 00:21:50

If you don't ask it's if you go ask our children. Oh, what do you about Oh,

00:21:55--> 00:22:02

he told them for your advantage. Preserve amongst statisticians connect to the loss of power.

00:22:05--> 00:22:05

Take care of

00:22:07--> 00:22:09

creating new form. You know what, we'll take care of you.

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

So now he's anxious. Okay, I want to take care of me. What do I have to take care of? Take care of me?

00:22:22--> 00:22:24

Of course, I want to take care of me.

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

can't watch my back.

00:22:34--> 00:22:38

Of course, what does it take to do that? Now he's anxious

00:22:39--> 00:22:40

to

00:22:41--> 00:22:46

preserve a loss of habitat is teachings and rules. And along with preserving

00:22:51--> 00:23:04

digital to preserve the rules of the loss of habitat, be mindful of a lot. And you will find a loss of habitat in front of you guiding you in life, you're not going to be as confused as those other people who have no connection with Allah.

00:23:06--> 00:23:07

Allah.

00:23:09--> 00:23:11

Allah subhanaw taala will give you wisdom.

00:23:12--> 00:23:17

A loss of power title will guide you, you will be able to make good sound choices.

00:23:19--> 00:23:29

If you preserve a lot of your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala when I'm not around, watching you, you will be able to resist temptation. You will be able to say no

00:23:30--> 00:23:31

to drugs,

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

no to alcohol.

00:23:36--> 00:23:39

No relationship relationships that ruin you.

00:23:41--> 00:23:41

You will have

00:23:42--> 00:23:43

so connected

00:23:44--> 00:23:49

most of us brothers and sisters, we watch our kids, which is very important.

00:23:51--> 00:23:54

But we don't teach them to connect to the last time.

00:23:55--> 00:23:58

We feel sometimes we might feel ourselves Okay, why don't

00:23:59--> 00:24:00

I myself?

00:24:01--> 00:24:04

Am I supposed to be mindful of a lot when I am not?

00:24:06--> 00:24:09

That's very hypocritical. So tell them don't do this

00:24:10--> 00:24:14

wrong culture in the United States. This is against our family's traditions.

00:24:17--> 00:24:29

But what happens when he's away from the family or when she's away from her family, when under your supervision what's going to happen? family's tradition, family and he doesn't know where she I've never spoken to.

00:24:32--> 00:24:33

When you say be mindful of

00:24:34--> 00:24:38

preserve you be mindful of alone and alone with in front of you guiding you,

00:24:39--> 00:24:40

with you wherever you go with.

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

A loss of habitat is with you.

00:24:47--> 00:24:49

He is with you, wherever you may be he's watching.

00:24:51--> 00:24:52

And

00:24:53--> 00:24:58

be mindful of along somehow without wherever you may be watching. If

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

you're sitting next

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

The study group, by yourself and someone else, Watson, I was watching

00:25:07--> 00:25:10

your mind, I was watching.

00:25:14--> 00:25:21

You're driving alone alone, somehow God is watching you. And he's with you. If you want to like to guide you, the preserver wants to

00:25:22--> 00:25:24

create a connection with a wall.

00:25:26--> 00:25:28

And then he says he says to him,

00:25:29--> 00:25:30

he says,

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

If you ask someone, if you are to ask for any help,

00:25:38--> 00:25:45

if you have to ask for any guidance for any support or anything that you want to ask, he does he does.

00:25:46--> 00:25:50

He literally asked them as philosophy cannot be dependent or known

00:25:51--> 00:25:57

for his on that maybe he's on that guys. Don't look forward for help from anyone else.

00:25:59--> 00:26:03

Be self sufficient, be dependent on a Nobel Prize.

00:26:05--> 00:26:07

And when you're dependent on more

00:26:08--> 00:26:08

than you'll be

00:26:09--> 00:26:13

self sufficient for this, please move forward, fill in the gaps.

00:26:15--> 00:26:16

And don't block the passage.

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

Preserve moments of time and He will guide you preserve alignment preserving,

00:26:28--> 00:26:35

preserving your relationship with the loss of habitat. And when you ask us number one, where do you stand

00:26:37--> 00:26:39

and if you seek help, then seek to

00:26:43--> 00:26:43

seek help.

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

seek help from someone that will not ask

00:26:50--> 00:26:57

for any favor about or will not ask you to pay them back or will not expect anything from you.

00:26:58--> 00:27:02

seek help from someone who will not hold it against you.

00:27:05--> 00:27:08

seek help from someone who will not use it against you.

00:27:12--> 00:27:15

Seek help only from a loss handler.

00:27:16--> 00:27:23

And someone might say me How is that teaching my kid to be self sufficient or dependent on him. So what

00:27:24--> 00:27:31

you religions are watching have to add has a lot to do with the way you behave, the way you will have to decrease

00:27:32--> 00:27:33

your choices that you make in

00:27:40--> 00:27:45

your relationship with almost contract has to do with the choices that you make and the promise of a further set one of

00:27:47--> 00:27:48

those people

00:27:49--> 00:27:51

and hear the person said it also

00:27:53--> 00:27:54

teaches him to believe

00:27:56--> 00:27:57

and he teaches him

00:28:03--> 00:28:10

know that if the nation was to gather together, the nation was to come together to bring any benefits.

00:28:12--> 00:28:24

Don't put put your trust in your your your faith, and others put it in a month somehow without a promo not feeling. So don't expect any good except from a law.

00:28:27--> 00:28:30

Firm I know that information was to gather together

00:28:32--> 00:28:36

to bring something good to you have any benefit from

00:28:37--> 00:28:44

it, they will not be able to benefit you with anything except that which Allah has already written for you has already prescribed for you.

00:28:46--> 00:28:54

And the opposite is true. Know that if the nation was to gather together to bring you any harm to inflict any harm upon you, they will not be able to do so.

00:28:56--> 00:28:59

except Allah has written for us

00:29:03--> 00:29:04

the proper sentences

00:29:07--> 00:29:08

the credits have been lifted.

00:29:11--> 00:29:12

And the pages

00:29:13--> 00:29:22

have dried. Meaning this alternative is already in another narration brothers and sisters the prompts on mom are insulin sensitive.

00:29:24--> 00:29:25

Know that

00:29:26--> 00:29:28

what has passed in whatever you miss.

00:29:31--> 00:29:35

Right? was never to be fully. It was not meant to happen.

00:29:36--> 00:29:39

So don't lose hope. Don't read.

00:29:41--> 00:29:42

Don't go crazy. Don't

00:29:43--> 00:29:47

Don't worry about it. You missed it. It wasn't meant to dream. It wasn't meant to happen.

00:29:49--> 00:29:55

And that was that which will happen to you was meant to happen. It was not it was not going to this

00:29:56--> 00:29:58

is a federal law and then the

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

same thing.

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

sentiment and know that victory comes with percipience victory comes with soccer. You want victory you want to overcome any challenges that have patience?

00:30:13--> 00:30:17

I say there's an answer lots of how to use patience in your greatest victory.

00:30:31--> 00:30:32

Right here

00:30:34--> 00:30:45

please allow me to follow the example of a prophet of Allah is committed ourselves and let me help the next generation commit to the teachings of Islam to the principle

00:30:46--> 00:30:59

if we want to bring this balance in their lives if we want to benefit from any good deed or from any deriving prayers and they will make for us will have to work hard for the brothers and sisters

00:31:02--> 00:31:15

will have to work hard for it and one of those ways is to seek refuge to find the shelter to find a place where we have come together and cultivate this

00:31:18--> 00:31:20

and what is better than a place like this

00:31:22--> 00:31:25

center where we can learn and come together

00:31:26--> 00:31:28

we don't have to come to them we don't have to do to

00:31:31--> 00:31:36

take advantage of a lot of water if you're going to have access to it or

00:31:37--> 00:31:39

take advantage of it before it's too late.

00:31:51--> 00:31:53

excited to share

00:32:26--> 00:32:26

if he had

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

nothing

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

to do

00:32:33--> 00:32:34

with

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

us

00:32:43--> 00:32:44

could

00:32:56--> 00:32:56

have

00:33:01--> 00:33:04

to give even know what it is hard to fathom

00:33:07--> 00:33:10

a shirt or single blue symbol

00:33:11--> 00:33:12

in a

00:33:18--> 00:33:19

warehouse

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

is real

00:33:23--> 00:33:24

political

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

anyone

00:33:38--> 00:33:39

in the left hand

00:33:40--> 00:33:41

column

00:33:45--> 00:33:46

it says up

00:33:51--> 00:33:56

probably learn how to get good returns on either side of campus and the last way to start the

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

game.

00:34:23--> 00:34:24

hour long.

00:34:31--> 00:34:32

Yeah, he's

00:34:41--> 00:34:42

not surprised.

00:34:44--> 00:34:45

When we

00:34:46--> 00:34:46

when?

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

When I was

00:34:57--> 00:34:58

when I was raised

00:35:01--> 00:35:03

And the value

00:35:05--> 00:35:06

of the land.

00:35:22--> 00:35:23

Dear brothers and sisters,

00:35:26--> 00:35:28

today, we're gonna have

00:35:30--> 00:35:33

actually, as part of our Friday night program,

00:35:37--> 00:35:38

that

00:35:41--> 00:35:45

the topic that he chose two or three weeks ago,

00:35:46--> 00:35:48

is titled reflections

00:35:50--> 00:35:51

from swords,

00:35:53--> 00:35:56

which translates into a key, or the key,

00:35:58--> 00:35:58

the key

00:36:00--> 00:36:01

chapter

00:36:02--> 00:36:03

18,

00:36:06--> 00:36:11

which we have decided every Friday, or we are encouraged by process of three sites every Friday.

00:36:13--> 00:36:18

This surah chapter is full of stories and lessons.

00:36:20--> 00:36:23

Very interesting stories and lessons.

00:36:25--> 00:36:35

And there are many lessons that can be drawn from this many lessons. And by the way, just like, it is the case with the entire program, this is one of the stores

00:36:37--> 00:36:38

that

00:36:39--> 00:36:41

prove the truthfulness of profit.

00:36:44--> 00:36:53

There was no possibility whatsoever for the profits, you know the details of those stories, without someone informing him. And that one has to be a lofty goal.

00:36:55--> 00:36:57

But besides that,

00:36:59--> 00:37:11

you'll come and show on and I urge you to come and join us tonight, bring your family we have an interesting family night program here for the youth. And for the adults. I urge you to come and join us tonight.

00:37:14--> 00:37:23

We've been having a steady level of participation, I thought that it will increase who will become more interested, everybody's talking about the Friday night program.

00:37:28--> 00:37:32

But what got my attention, the only thing that I'd like to

00:37:33--> 00:37:34

mention

00:37:36--> 00:37:39

is the story of the cave itself. I'm not going to go into the details.

00:37:44--> 00:37:47

But I want you to reflect upon the fact

00:37:50--> 00:38:00

that a few young men who embraced faith in a wise way that they believe in the Lord. They were living in

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

opinion society

00:38:06--> 00:38:08

where people will associate others with oma.

00:38:10--> 00:38:10

They decided

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

to open their hearts to embrace faith in Allah.

00:38:19--> 00:38:24

But they knew that they were swimming against the curves.

00:38:26--> 00:38:27

They knew that

00:38:29--> 00:38:32

the members of the society and the king would not let them

00:38:33--> 00:38:34

worship freely.

00:38:36--> 00:38:44

And then we're going to be persecuted. So they thought to themselves, what is most precious? What should we do in this case?

00:38:45--> 00:38:54

And they decided to go and seek refuge somewhere where no one will put them under pressure that might cause them

00:38:56--> 00:39:00

to lose their faith. They were so protective of their faith

00:39:01--> 00:39:04

of what makes them who they were.

00:39:05--> 00:39:10

What made them who they were their identity. They wanted to preserve their faith.

00:39:11--> 00:39:14

And they chose to go to a clean

00:39:15--> 00:39:16

slate

00:39:17--> 00:39:18

basically to clean

00:39:21--> 00:39:22

preserve their meat

00:39:23--> 00:39:24

to preserve their faith.

00:39:27--> 00:39:29

This is how precious it was.

00:39:30--> 00:39:31

Brothers and sisters

00:39:32--> 00:39:34

live has many rooms

00:39:36--> 00:39:37

many dimensions.

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

The other day I was

00:39:42--> 00:39:42

watching

00:39:43--> 00:39:46

some training video

00:39:48--> 00:39:51

on financial management.

00:39:52--> 00:39:55

And now they're calling me this is pretty much repeated everywhere.

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

They're talking about

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

Now I've been consumed by the physical aspects of life and paying attention to the other

00:40:08--> 00:40:14

most critical and most effective aspects of life. And this particular person

00:40:18--> 00:40:26

was actually a coach, a PhD, and he was talking about how there are four dimensions or four

00:40:27--> 00:40:29

aspects of life. He also likes

00:40:31--> 00:40:32

the mental aspect,

00:40:34--> 00:40:36

the spiritual aspect,

00:40:37--> 00:40:38

and the physical.

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

And he was talking about how

00:40:42--> 00:40:44

the other three, the first three aspects

00:40:45--> 00:40:46

are invisible.

00:40:47--> 00:40:50

The one that is visible is the physical aspect.

00:40:52--> 00:41:04

The one that people measure their success with is the physical aspect. However, what controls the physical aspects of the will, the well being of the physical aspect are the other three and physical aspects.

00:41:06--> 00:41:21

So, if you really want to succeed in life, if you want to become rich, he was saying, then focus on the invisible aspects of life, balancing fulfillment, and then you will enjoy the physical aspect.

00:41:22--> 00:41:23

And you will succeed in

00:41:26--> 00:41:27

law.

00:41:31--> 00:41:31

Now,

00:41:35--> 00:41:35

now that

00:41:38--> 00:41:41

we have our assets, the promise of a one party

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

in

00:41:47--> 00:41:49

a lot of detail is not examine your

00:41:51--> 00:41:54

images, your features,

00:41:55--> 00:41:57

or your property into physiques.

00:41:58--> 00:42:02

That's not what you should be obsessed you're consumed with.

00:42:04--> 00:42:06

Take care of it and maintain it.

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

Appreciate it. But don't let it become your first priority. Don't focus so much on it, and forget what really matters to us a panel with

00:42:19--> 00:42:20

which you will be judged by

00:42:22--> 00:42:22

whatever

00:42:23--> 00:42:24

era

00:42:26--> 00:42:31

exams and looks at the state of your heart, and your actions, your deeds,

00:42:32--> 00:42:33

your deeds.

00:42:35--> 00:42:37

So now, we're talking about success in this life.

00:42:40--> 00:42:45

And that success will not take place unless you take those so called invisible aspects of life.

00:42:49--> 00:42:58

What controls those aspects of five brothers and sisters is none other than what we have been talking about for the past few weeks. Your belief system,

00:42:59--> 00:43:03

your faith, your values, your principles.

00:43:06--> 00:43:12

That's what determines, and that's what controls the well being of your emotional,

00:43:13--> 00:43:15

mental, and

00:43:17--> 00:43:18

spiritual well being.

00:43:21--> 00:43:42

Remember what I said about Islam and coming up with those rules and regulations, not to restrict our lives and to make our lives miserable, and to make our lives harder, but rather to preserve our lives, and to preserve the necessities of life. And remember how we covered five last week, and I said, the most important the most critical

00:43:43--> 00:43:44

is the first one.

00:43:46--> 00:43:52

preserving your being your faith, your principles, your values, because they make the control

00:43:54--> 00:43:58

they pretty much affect the well being of

00:44:00--> 00:44:09

those young men, and the story of the people of the cave escaped to achieve to preserve this aspect of their lives. The most precious,

00:44:11--> 00:44:12

the most critical

00:44:14--> 00:44:17

brothers and sisters if we don't pay attention to this part,

00:44:18--> 00:44:22

early on, especially when raising children

00:44:24--> 00:44:31

don't wait until they're 1415 or they when they go to high school they feel like oh their future might be at risk

00:44:33--> 00:44:38

of this behavior all this lack of motivation was started early on.

00:44:40--> 00:44:42

And as an example, as

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

I got you a headache

00:44:47--> 00:44:52

and I think that we should all memorize know get to know this heavy and teach it to our children.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

This heavy which is part of the story related

00:45:02--> 00:45:04

By the target of these words,

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

himself.

00:45:08--> 00:45:12

The subject in this hurry is the one that really impressed.

00:45:14--> 00:45:18

And he turned out to be one of the greatest figures in our history.

00:45:20--> 00:45:22

The ultimate reference in

00:45:23--> 00:45:25

teaching and the meanings of

00:45:28--> 00:45:29

alcohol in practice,

00:45:30--> 00:45:32

because of the problem, so a lot of body

00:45:34--> 00:45:36

recalls when he was a young man who

00:45:39--> 00:45:39

took him.

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

He gave him a ride, and he was riding behind the property. So a lot of it was

00:45:47--> 00:45:52

I was riding behind the Prophet, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam.

00:45:56--> 00:45:59

And then he turns to him, and he says, Yeah,

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

he started a conversation with a

00:46:03--> 00:46:18

young boy. And by the way, means someone under 10 years old, is usually used for someone under 10 years old. And this shows you how early on one has to start. He didn't say the property to say, Oh, he's too young. Oh,

00:46:21--> 00:46:23

no, he shared a very serious

00:46:24--> 00:46:47

statement with him very important word of advice in a way that he can relate to. He got down to his level, he connected with him, he took them with at the end of a ride behind him. People used to compete people used to a lot of a lot of it was similar. But the process and again, this privilege and honor to this young man inspired him.

00:46:48--> 00:46:50

And then he didn't ignore him the whole time.

00:46:52--> 00:46:54

Listening to his favorite radio station.

00:46:57--> 00:47:01

And knowing that they might know, but he started a conversation with him.

00:47:04--> 00:47:18

He himself attention, he paid him some attention. He made him feel important. He recognized his presence. He didn't wait until he gets he got in trouble. And then he started lecturing him. No, he was

00:47:20--> 00:47:26

young man, young age, they arrived. Pay attention to me, he started a conversation with him.

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

And then he said,

00:47:31--> 00:47:32

in your

00:47:33--> 00:47:36

shop tissue statements, words, some words of advice.

00:47:40--> 00:47:43

Remember them commit to them. They're very important.

00:47:45--> 00:47:50

very concise, very short. He said to him, be mindful of a lot.

00:49:00--> 00:49:02

to give you the scripts inside and up to that body that abuses me.

00:49:04--> 00:49:08

No to relationships that ruin you.

You will have

00:50:12--> 00:50:19

so connected. Most of us brothers and sisters, we watch our kids, which is very important.

00:50:21--> 00:50:24

But we don't teach them to connect with them most of the time.

00:50:25--> 00:50:28

We feel sometimes we might feel ourselves Okay, when

00:50:31--> 00:50:34

am I supposed to tell them Oh, be mindful of a lot when I am not writing.

00:50:36--> 00:50:38

That's very hypocritical. So tell them don't do this

00:50:40--> 00:50:44

wrong culture in the United States. This is against our the family's traditions.

00:50:47--> 00:50:59

00:51:01--> 00:51:03

00:51:13--> 00:51:14

00:51:44--> 00:51:50

You're driving alone, alone, somehow God is watching and he's with you. And if you want someone to guide you, the preserver wants to

00:51:52--> 00:51:54

create a connection with a wall.

00:51:56--> 00:51:58

And then he says he says to him,

00:51:59--> 00:52:00

00:52:01--> 00:52:07

they will not be able to benefit you with anything except that which Allah has already written for you has already prescribed for you.

00:55:15--> 00:55:24

And the opposite is true know that if the nation was to gather together to bring you any harm to inflict any harm upon you, they will not be able to do so.

00:55:25--> 00:55:29

My dear brothers and sisters,

00:57:31--> 00:57:44

will have to work hard for it. And one of those ways is to seek refuge, to find the shelter to find a place where we can come together and cultivate this.

00:57:48--> 00:57:50

And what is better than a place like this

00:57:52--> 00:57:55

center where we can learn and come together.

00:57:56--> 00:57:58

00:58:01--> 00:58:06

take advantage of a lot of water. If you're going to have access to it or

00:58:07--> 00:58:09
