All praise is due to Allah we praise Him. We seek his aid and we asked for his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evil consequences of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray. And whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray in on can guide I testify that there is none worthy of our worship and devotion but the Almighty Allah alone. And I testify that Muhammad Sallallahu it he were early he was a servant, and His Messenger Oh you who believe. Fear Allah as you shouldn't be
feared and die not accept as Muslims in submission and surrender to your Lord, or mankind. be dutiful to your Lord who created you from a single person and from him he created his wife and from them both he created many men and women and fear Allah through whom you demand your mutual rights and observe the rights of your kin. Surely Allah is Ever and all watched over you or you who believe. Keep your duty to Allah, fear him and speak the truth. He will direct you to righteous deeds and will forgive your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed attained a great achievement. The best words are the Divine Words of Allah, and the best guidance instead of
Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was in them. And the worst things in the religion are the newly invented matters for all the newly invented matters in religion, or innovation, and bigger and every bit that is misguidance and it leads to the hellfire.
Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and the authentic hadith mean how Sunni Islam will model a telco Humala, any
sign of the perfection of one's Islam. One's adherence to Islam, or an aspect a prominent aspect of the perfection and a good shape of one's Islam.
To alcohol Manet is that this person turns away from things that do not concern him.
And that's a great advice from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The Prophet SAW Selim is advising us to channel our attention, our energy, our time, our engagement
with the things that benefit us, and I believe we have come to understand what
Word benefit really means in Islam what the word good means in Islam. It means that we fulfill the purpose of our creation, that we live a life of devotion and loyalty to our Creator, that we stay true to him, we remain obedient to His commands.
And any of the aspects of our livelihood and our engagement with life that feeds positively into this pursuit. These are good things, these are the things that concern us. We came into this world with a clear mission,
we were brought into this world to fulfill a clear purpose, and that is to worship Allah. And that includes knowing him.
That includes loving Him, that includes obedience to Him, and includes loyalty, and surrender.
And everything in our life, the necessities of our life, that feed into this that helped this are the good things in the Islamic definition. And these are the things that should concern you. Anything beyond the scope
doesn't concern you. It means it's none of your business. And when you engage in that the reason why the prophets of Allah who it was send them gave this advice. And this point shows us the importance of this guidance from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because once you preoccupy yourself with things beyond the scope of your concern
you are taking from your mission.
You are forsaking something that you are supposed to engage in. Because the time that Allah allotted for you the time that Allah gave you to spend in this life is measured by the millisecond.
Allah subhana wa Tada says, In the Quran, in Pondicherry in Kalapana, who gave
that everything we created it according to a precise measure your time was measured before you were created. It was decided, not in the seconds, 90 milliseconds and even parameters sharper than that. So the time that you were given to live in this life is not random. The duration is not random. The conditions that you go through the circumstances that you've been through the conditions of your life, none of them is random. From our point of view, they seem to be random.
But from the other side, which is the side of divinity.
Everything happens according to plan, according to purpose, and there is nothing without purpose. There is nothing that happens by chance. There is nothing that happens by sheer coincidence. It all happens according to plan and according to measure divine measure. So the time that you were given here is hardly enough for you to pass the test of this life. The moment you take from that the resources that Allah gave you the time, the mental energy, the attentional focus.
Once you take it from your mission, and put it somewhere that doesn't fall within the scope of your mission, you are compromising your chances of succeeding in the test of this life.
Your deputizing your opportunity or your chance to enter paradise. you're limiting your credit, you're doing yourself a disservice, you are incurring a loss. And that's why Allah subhanaw taala said in the SOA that we all know and remember Shafi said, If people only read this verse, meaning read it and properly understand it, it would suffice them that we would be enough for them. No Cara national heavy Sue Metallica Tom
and this is the divine statement where Allah subhanaw taala that says, we'll be learning the shipowner rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim well also
in an in Santa Fe
where I'm you know, slightly hurt, whatever, so we'll have to wait a while so but some of the by time, Allah swears by time which is his creation.
Allah created time time is not an independent thing. It doesn't exist by itself. Allah created time for us as a dimension to live in.
By time man is in Los Look at the beautiful connection between time
and loss. Why did Allah lick these two things because the loss of most of humanity can
comes from their abuse of the time that was given to them from the lifetime
people's loss, people's destruction, people's problems, those who went to the hellfire. The main reason for the loss was the mismanagement of time of awesome, that's why Allah chose to swear by time while also in in Santa Fe. By time man is in loss, humans are in a state of loss. Why? Mainly because they don't appreciate the time that Allah gave them the value of this precious asset. We undermine it and that's why we humans tend to kill time. We want to pass time. We don't know what to do with our life. We feel bored. We want entertainment.
we resort to time wasters. We even call it leisure time, leisure, there's nothing leisure in this life.
There's no surplus time that you are given in this life you were given this time and Allah will ask you about every second of it. And the Prophet sallallahu sallam said in the authenticating letters all over them at the neoman at
the feet of son of Adam on the Day of Judgment when standing before Allah, you will not leave that place, you will not leave that standing where you will be questioned you are asked you will not move on to your final destination. Before you are asked about four things.
Let us all look at them and add in your multi Yamata use and an arrow.
And from these four things to have to do with time.
Normally, female habla female, often that one should be female.
About your lifetime. The time the lifespan that you spent on this earth you will be asked about it. What do you what did you do with it? That's what allows us have means that's what Allah says what Rasul Allah says, pay attention to time.
Be careful how you spend this precious gift that I gave you.
Don't take it for granted.
You will be asked about it the seconds, the milliseconds, the minutes, the hours, the days, the months, the years, your time you will be asked what did you do with it? And then you youth and that's the prime of your life when you have the most energy
when you are the most effective.
Joe also will be asked about that some extra kind of questioning and reckoning.
So you need to be careful in need to have answers for how did you use your time because Allah will also ask you about your money, your wealth, as he will ask you about every penny, every cent that you earn. Where did you get it from? Where did it come from?
A perfect audit. Where did you get the sense from? Was it halal or haram? How did you spend it?
Rohan O'Malley had an Kitab ILAHA. They're also the rotten wood that can be rotten in Lhasa. And they said on the Day of Judgment, they said, What is it with this book that it leaves nothing big or small, major or minut and tiny, except that it has accounts for it.
But it has it documented. The same applies not only to your sense, but also applies to your seconds, what did you do with them?
time has intrinsic value. And if you don't channel this value into something that buys you assets on the day of judgment that gains you credit with Allah subhanho wa Taala you are missing out on profit.
This is wasted potential you're wasting it
and that's a great loss and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He uses the same word that we refer to many times after Robin.
Robin comes from Robin which is actually a name of one of the sources in the Quran. dedicate the omentum and dedicate
the day of what the day when people who have fooled themselves will wake up to their loss will have to live with the consequences of their loss, the destruction that they incurred upon themselves
their own mismanagement of what Allah gave them. The prophets Allah Salim says net Mitanni Maha Moreland V McAfee or Amina Ness
Two gifts from Allah two blessings from Allah that people fool themselves with regard to them. People miss out on them, people under appreciate them, people fail to seize them and benefit them, you were given these, and you will be questioned about them. So you better make good use of them. You're already liable. You're already in a position of liability and you have to answer for them. So make something good out of them.
You're at a disadvantage when you don't use your time because it counts against you. Now I'm attorney Marc Bolan fee market hero minuteness are so happy to have the blessings of Allah that people misuse people don't appreciate people lose out on and what are these good health and time, you have a lot of time on your hands. You don't know what to do with it.
You call up someone?
Let's go have coffee. Let's just talk let's chat about anything. Right? As if this time has no value as if you're not going to be asked about it. You don't know what to do with it. There's plenty of things. So this is the principle why the Prophet Solomon said in the Hadith that we started this cookbook with mean Hasni Islam and Mockito Kumala Yanni that from the perfection of one's Eman once adherence to Islam, once performance, once level of Islam and once connection to Allah.
What is the main feature of that is that you do not busy yourself with things that fall beyond the scope of your concern of your concern
of what truly benefits you why because it's an abuse of time.
It's an abuse of time and the energy that you have in your in this time, mental energy, physical energy,
different talents and gifts and skills that Allah has given you, you waste them on something that doesn't earn you any benefit on the Day of Judgment, that automatically means loss. And this is where this all comes about.
By time man is in last humans all of them are in lost but for those who do what, believe and do righteous deeds
and enjoying that which is good, and enjoying people to be patient and to remain steadfast. Only when you use the sign in something that benefits you with Allah only then you will save yourself from loss but if you don't use the time in such a manner, then you have already incurred loss on you and you will regret it on the Day of Judgment.
Allah subhanaw taala talks about
a conversation that happens between two groups of people on the Day of Judgment.
The people of Paradise will ask the people in the Hellfire What happened to you?
What led you to the hellfire?
What made you end up in this burning fire and this punishment eternal punishment?
well I'm not gonna blame all Muslim skin. Welcome Nana whom Alpha Ileen McAleenan okay, they will be Bo me Dean had to attend.
They said, We will not among those who prayed. We didn't use our time. Well, don't look at these things as a list. We were not among those who prayed and we did not give charity to the orphan and those in need.
And we used to waste our time talking about things that are non important and non beneficial with other people. We still engage in these conversations Mokona, hobo Malka, Ileen are we used to indulge in what evil talk or full stop? We're gonna look at the movie or mundane. And we used to disbelieve in the Hereafter.
This is not just a list.
Because if you don't use your time and what's good,
you're going to use your time and what's evil. Most people think you know, I'm just going to do nothing with my time. It's virtually impossible to just waste time. You will use it to your own detriment. So these people what did they do? How did they spend their time? Because they engaged in the idle talk conversations where there is no benefit conversations about topics that fall beyond the scope of what benefits them with Allah.
What happened to them? They wasted that precious asset. And they got engaged in these conversations can we add to the list? Because the Quran is extremely extreme.
essays when it tells something, oftentimes it talks about categories. It talks about a representative of a category. So when Allah says, What Guna, hobo man ha Yulian, about these people that we used to just talk with people about whatever they talked about,
we were wasting our time chatting and gossiping and talking. Can we add to the list? Yeah, watching YouTube, TV, scrolling down your social media, reading every tweet, right? Watching the fights between so and so on the discussions and the arguments that truly don't benefit you.
Playing video games,
wasting time with friends doing nothing.
But you end up doing evil things. And you know that
when you engage in something, when you use your time with something that falls beyond the scope of what truly benefits you with Allah, you're going to be captured in that area, it will start to become a leak a permanent leak into your time
you become preoccupied with it, you become addicted to it.
It has a pool, it has some control over you, you start to waste your time what happens when you do that you will start thinking from the time of the obligations. So you will start to fall short in fulfilling the obligations that are due to Allah. And that's why the people of the Hellfire they said we were not among those who prayed why? Because they were busy gossiping. That's the reason there are people say I don't have time or I would love to engage with the Quran. Why? Because you're playing video games all the time.
I want to learn Islam.
I want to learn to hate, I want to know the flick of Islam the pic of worship. I want to understand my religion. But I find it very difficult. Yes, because you're spending so many hours on social media, writing comments or reading tweets, and answering to this and slandering this.
When you put your time where it doesn't belong, that's going to ruin it's going to creep up on your time, it's going to ruin your heart first, it will take from the time that is meant for acts of worship that are voluntary, where you can do more where you can add more, earn more credit with Allah subhanaw taala. But eventually that's going to creep on more to eat and cough from the time that is meant for your obligations. The obligations that you owe to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's why the prophets Allah sent them said, if you want to know that someone's religion, someone's Eman, someone's faith, someone's adherence to Islam is in good shape. Look at how, where they put
their focus, how do they spend their attention? What are the things that they decide to invest their attention, their mental energy, and they're tying in? That's really what decides a wise person from a foolish person.
So someone who's always busy with the private life of other people.
You know, sometimes you'll find people walking down the street, and they're just peeking into people's houses, Windows. They're so curious. They want to know about the private life of someone, or what's going on in someone's life. Well, they see two people holding conversation they come near to them trying to overhear what's being said.
But there's something inside that burns them that they want to know everything about other people, the private life of other people, they try to figure out the secrets of other people.
They are living an interesting life or they think they're going to find something of interest, but they are literally ripping, the literally ripping off the assets that Allah has given them. They're burning them.
They're setting themselves up for failure and loss on the Day of Judgment. So to make it very clear, if you want to know if you Islam is good or not
make an inventory of your time everyday. How do you use your time? Where do you put your energy? Where is your Where does your attention go? If you find your attention is attracted to things or gravitates to things that don't benefit you with Allah subhanaw taala that means your heart is poisoned and is diseased.
And that you Eman is not in good shape.
But if you find that your attention goes mainly to the things that benefit you with Allah, learning more about Allah fulfilling your Salah, reading the Quran, look at how Allah describes the believers.
Can Khalil Amina Leyland I will as Harry home yourself Iran
they would hardly sleep at night because they would pray
They will keep themselves busy with praying. And they would wake up towards the end of the night seeking Allah's forgiveness. Do you think such people have time to waste about what their neighbor is doing? Oh, where did they go on vacation? Or what kind of business they are doing or what happened to their wife.
Even if something comes to their attention detail away from it, it's not if it benefits me with Allah, I can listen, if it doesn't benefit me, then automatically I should block that. Why? Because it is a distraction from Trayvon he tries to pull you when
cretins tries to ensnare you into that into that vacuum, that will take away your feet. Hold on Molly, Hannah was a little while you were looking for stuff.
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayidina, Muhammad Ali was heavy.
Allah describes the believers towards the end of sorts of Lacan. And one of the beautiful descriptions that Allah gives about them, whether living in a home and in love with him or her you born. And they are the ones who turn away from idle talk. And when idle talk is things that don't benefit them.
Things that don't benefit them.
That's a sign of faith. That's the description of the believers. If something doesn't bring me closer to Allah,
then I have no time for it. That should be the attitude of every believer. If something doesn't make me dearer to Allah doesn't earn me His pleasure, then I have no capacity to give it in terms of attention, mental energy, time processing, nothing, literally nothing. What you were given by Allah is precious, make, make sure that you use it for something that Allah appreciates, and Allah rewards for otherwise, you would literally be fooling yourself. And you will be creating so much trouble and loss for you that you will realize on the day of judgments.
That's why a believer has no time to waste. They have no time to look into people's of firsts or to peek into people's private life. They have no interest in that what interests them is what gets them to Jelena. And the necessities of life that they can't do, that they no one can do away with. That's what interests them. That means this is a heart that loves Allah and wants to be with Allah eternally. And it only it's only willing to channel its energy to something that brings them closer to Allah, something that Allah loves.
Because they know everything else is a trap.
And then not willing to jeopardize their eternal destiny for some kind of passing interest
or some kind of curiosity.
This should be the attitude of a believer this makes a person live a life of purpose, focus, you know what, Where you heading, you know what benefits you and you pursue it. Anything else is none of your business and doesn't concern you. And that's a very simple life. You know, today, there's been a trend about simplifying the life and minimalist life, right. That's it. That's the right one. It's built on purpose. You simplify your life, a lot of the drama, a lot of the trauma, a lot of the pain and the hassle in life will dissipate if you live that life of focus and purpose, and that's the reward from Allah subhanho wa taala.
