And and in the English book, it had two people talking and they're on this on this train. And the person says where are you from? And the person says In response, I'm from Bristol.

00:02:36--> 00:02:42

So like Bristol every time I hear Bristol I remember those good old English learning English books.

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

I have thoughts of like some curry and meat and some road tea or something like that.

00:04:12--> 00:04:14

Or is it just eggs and coffee

00:04:16--> 00:04:20

00:04:40--> 00:04:45

If you're in the Philippines right now, that's cool. But if you're from the Philippines, it's also cool

00:04:52--> 00:04:55

some people having breakfast some people having a star

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

Didn't one minute

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

How long in one minutes

00:05:10--> 00:05:26

Okay, here we found that we can start now with a clear, clear heart. I mean I says Well typically it's roti and curry so that was right roti and party for breakfast. Nasi Lemak Today I'm having bread and cheese

00:05:32--> 00:05:36

and for Crimean Yes, yes.

00:05:37--> 00:05:54

I won't comment about it. All right, this is cool. Now we can begin again elmen is in and from the Philippines, Muslim both in and from the Philippines inshallah one day I'd like to visit the Philippines. Alright, let's begin.

00:05:55--> 00:05:56

Take one

00:06:12--> 00:06:23

take one extra money quantum to live it together. Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah, Elio sabe, Manuel, and my bad for those who have taken classes with me before maybe I spoke about this.

00:06:28--> 00:07:02

I spoken about this before. And that is, for the longest time the longest time in the world. I've had trouble going to sleep at night, insomnia, insomnia. And this is like, you know what, I think it's almost my whole life. Probably when I was a little kid, it wasn't the case. But ever since like high school or something like that good. 20 years, I've had 20 years, yes, 20 years had problems. Going to sleep at night and therefore waking up for Fudger. If you have problems going to sleep at night, especially when Fajr comes in, and the summertime,

00:07:03--> 00:07:44

federal might come in at like four o'clock 430. If you go to sleep at two o'clock, that's two hours sleeping, then you got to wake back up. And that's every single day. It's very intense. And it doesn't work out most of the time. And I had a lot of problems with this. But I attended this event and the event was focused on taking action, the event was taking off. So not just you know, most classes that you attend, you're encouraged to write notes and have a binder and then you go home, and maybe some of it sticks in your head. But most of it doesn't. Let's be honest, good. 90% just gets forgotten until you review it a couple of years later, you're like, Wow, that was good

00:07:44--> 00:08:23

information. I wish I'd done something that this event was different. This event was like you're going to take action. So my goal was to wake up for Fudger. And then I said, So what action could I take? And the action that I thought of was? Well, why don't I get a wake up, buddy? Wake up, buddy. And this is someone this is like I have this idea. You know how you, you might call somebody to wake them up for Phaedra I had the opposite idea. I call it like a federal celebration, somebody you call after you've prayed feathered to share the good news that you've woken up almost like a check in after the fact. So you're not calling and you're not calling this person to

00:08:28--> 00:08:39

fix them and wake them up out of their sleep. And the issue is, hey, let's Miss positive. Let's celebrate this after we woken up professor. So the person that I chose to be my Fudger

00:08:41--> 00:08:57

party celebrator partner was my nephew was my nephew. And I know you guys, you don't hear me talking about my nephews and my nieces and stuff like that. I don't have too many of them. But this was many years ago and he was a young boy at that time.

00:08:59--> 00:09:05

And I asked him I said you know what I want I want to be your Fudger wake up partner.

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

So and he said okay,

00:09:10--> 00:09:46

and normally you know my nephew's another country, another city, whatever. I don't I don't I don't have a very strong bond with my nephew. But this is something that I did. And I chose him. So this is what happened. So that next day, the next day, I woke up for Fudger and it was really hard. It was like like I said, I always have this insomnia. I go to sleep late and and it was just another day you know, everyday you go to sleep you tell yourself I'll do better today. And it's the same old same old right. So I went I did wake up from the left refrigerator, but I was really groggy. I went in the bathroom, and

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

kinda like Nokia phones, and there was a red blinking light on the phone. I said, huh

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

That red blinking light wasn't there when I went to make will do and now it's there. And

00:10:08--> 00:10:27

before I prayed, I went to my messages on the phone and I voicemail remember those days from pupils and voicemail. It was a voicemail message. And it was the young groggy sound of my nephew, who was a young boy at that time. Let me try to think how old he was.

00:10:30--> 00:10:32

He might have been 12 years old.

00:10:33--> 00:10:50

He might have been 12 years old at that time, actually, maybe even younger than that. And, and this is the message he said to me. In the in the voicemail. He said, I'm more Hello. He said hello. I just wanted to let you know that I woke up for fetcher.

00:10:51--> 00:11:38

And subhanAllah as I was preparing to tell you guys, you know, today's topic, this little moment in time, like as long time ago is like more than 10 years ago, more than how many years is maybe like more than 15 years ago. But Subhanallah I realized then that when I take action, it benefits other people too, that not only am I the 1am I going to be the one that's going to benefit but Relationships and family other people benefit from us taking action. So this idea of I didn't want my events to just be about consuming information and then stockpiling it I wanted the information to lead to taking action. Now let's look at Ramadan. Okay, so Ramadan comes and we tell ourselves we

00:11:38--> 00:12:02

don't have time to read Quran we tell ourselves we don't we're not able to fast Mondays Thursdays let alone every single day we tell ourselves that I don't have time to wake up in the middle of the night and pray normally all throughout the year it might be the entire year we don't get to do these things. But then Ramadan comes and proves to us that our thoughts are just

00:12:04--> 00:12:14

are just made up our thoughts are just made up because we say we don't have time for Quran but in Ramadan like we finished the entire Quran or we're reading all the time we say we don't have time to pray

00:12:15--> 00:12:56

pm or can't wake up and in Ramadan we're like waking up every night all day long. All these plans and so on. We tell ourselves oh I can't fast Mondays Thursdays and Ramadan comes along and we fast every single day for 30 days. So Ramadan proves to us that we have more potential than than what we've set out to but what is the metaphor for Ramadan like I've said in a couple of the in the lectures I've said a lot of people think Ramadan is like a guest and I said the problem with that analogy or that metaphor is a guest comes and leaves and you go back to your normal life and I don't think that Ramadan that's not what the intention is for

00:12:58--> 00:12:59


00:13:00--> 00:13:05

talking about cleaning up your height, but I say that the analogy for

00:13:06--> 00:13:53

for Ramadan is like a Career College Career College where you are trained in a career college to do something outside of Ramadan to do something outside of Ramadan. So all this tap water all this time that you have all this put on the tidal wave and all this you know holding your tongue backbiting all of these things, you want to take it outside of Ramadan. So Ramadan comes to an end, and we have this window of sorry, we have this bubble or a balloon of productivity and benefit and we can do a lot of good things. But as we all know, we tend to go back to our old habits inshallah Tada the balloon doesn't go all the way down, but we tend to go back to our old habits and that all that time

00:13:53--> 00:14:18

that we were awake at night now we can do anything at night. All that time we were reading Quran and let me know in the comments if you agree Have you like has the productivity the output decreased with you? Has it decreased all this Quran that we're reading now we're not even like opening the most half the fasting it's like wow, I just all of these things. So there's a window and I'd say it's about three weeks and we're almost hitting like

00:14:23--> 00:14:24

close down.

00:14:26--> 00:14:27


00:14:28--> 00:14:36

we know it's possible that we can do it and we have this window where if we don't we're going to be filling up this extra time with something we need to do something

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


00:14:42--> 00:14:50

share with you kind of like the thought process behind it is posed on Milan five day challenge. So we've done

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

we're doing this program called the post Ramadan five day challenge. And what it is is for five days we're going to use

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

This window of power that we've got this this power of time this power that Rama blood has given us this training this vocational training that now we want to take that we want to implement it and take action you might say take action on what I would tell you take action on the drawers that you've been making in Ramadan if anything, so normal line, it's like like lay little cutter it's it's the decree for the upcoming year and so you made dos for things in the hereafter and for this dunya and for those dunya things that you want to take action on now is the time to take action on it and so in this five day challenge that we're going to be doing I'm going to be giving you guys

00:15:41--> 00:16:03

techniques and motivation and we're going to be in a big group of people taking action on the things that we make dua for in Ramadan inshallah Tada so yes, that is the post Ramadan five day challenge if you go to post Ramadan if you go to post Ramadan, you know what, let me let me type it as a caption here

00:16:04--> 00:16:07

that post Rama lon five day challenge

00:16:17--> 00:16:54

post Ramadan five day challenge and the cool thing about this post Ramadan challenge is how much it costs. That's the cool thing that it only costs $1 to join. Obviously, it's for commitment to get into this group to be part of this excitement in sha Allah Tada. It shouldn't take anything for your mind just jump in post Ramadan five day challenge. It actually was launched yesterday, or if you say like 12 hours ago. So if you're in this zone and you want to take action on the things you may draw for and Ramadan, the let's get busy. The post Ramadan five day challenge.

00:16:57--> 00:17:02

I like this. Amen says How much for this class $1.

00:17:04--> 00:17:05

One $1.

00:17:06--> 00:17:22

And that's it long on any questions taking action. We're talking about taking action after Ramadan. We're talking about this window that closes after I'm Alana productivity and taking action on that. What are your thoughts? What would you like to ask?

00:17:25--> 00:17:26

It's a post from our bond.

00:17:28--> 00:17:51

That's funny. Caribbean says that the transfer fee is higher than the course. What can you get for $1 you can get the post from above and five day challenge. Trisha says did you post the link the link is I didn't post it in the comments because there's different places that the comments are going to because I'm broadcasting different things but yeah, it's on the it's on the screen.

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

Post trauma lawn five day challenge.

00:17:57--> 00:18:02

Dolla dolla this is gonna get stuck in your head this this post Ramadan five day challenge.

00:18:05--> 00:18:14

Tanya says Can we do anything to benefit others? Tanya, can you explain what you mean by that question? Can we do anything to benefit others?

00:18:15--> 00:18:19

Rubina if you go to the website you'll find the date and time

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

I'm actually not sure

00:18:24--> 00:18:28

Nuran says really want to join you're in this is your chance a $1

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

Tina Leroy says what's up?

00:18:33--> 00:18:34

Nothing much

00:18:42--> 00:19:20

so for people asking about the date, so the actual classes when they happen, I mean, like the actual five day challenge is coming up in a few days. So but right now we are people are registering we're gonna get the word out in sha Allah Tada and the Facebook group that's kicked off for this is actually already just started. So you can still benefit and introduce yourself and meet other people and all of those things that's happening now. Uh, when we actually begin the five day challenge, where I'm going to be doing the daily lectures and motivation and giving daily challenges that's happening in about five days from now I believe.

00:19:33--> 00:19:37

Can we do anything to benefit others by attending this class?

00:19:42--> 00:19:47

Tony says Can we do anything to benefit others by attending this class?

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

So what you're saying Tanya, is you got life done. Everything's working out great for you. Yes. And you're like I will take a class so long as it can benefit other people.

00:20:02--> 00:20:03

Why don't those other people

00:20:05--> 00:20:10

then why don't you encourage them to take the class cut out the middleman

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

Anybody got a question or

00:20:18--> 00:20:21

question comment anything you want to discuss

00:20:35--> 00:20:38

like Muslim Lebanon in Toronto

00:20:48--> 00:20:53

Can you check the dates of the actual posts from Milan five day challenge

00:21:00--> 00:21:05

it starts June 15. It starts June 15.

00:21:09--> 00:21:15

Actually it started now like I said, the group's already begun and people are piling in but it starts

00:21:17--> 00:21:18


00:21:29--> 00:21:38

Ayesha's question says how is the exclusive group of this class different from Dreamwalker So, I said this is just a five day challenge so it's not like a

00:21:40--> 00:21:46

like a full type of class like you've taken with visionair or other kind of like intensity and whatnot so

00:21:48--> 00:21:52

it's a challenge so I wouldn't compare it to you know, like

00:21:53--> 00:22:00

like in the dream Walker classes or envision or something like that this is something more for a general audience

00:22:02--> 00:22:09

inshallah Italia still benefit from those things but I wouldn't compare it to that it's a challenge it's not like a

00:22:10--> 00:22:11

full course

00:22:16--> 00:22:24

it'd be less says is there any fasting involved? No, you can fast if you want and nobody said you can fast but that's not what I'm teaching

00:22:39--> 00:22:41

rubina's question says okay.

00:22:46--> 00:23:05

biller says You didn't answer my question it'd be the post your question again. I don't see it I see. rubina's question which is if all do ours are executed on the night of other Nobody said that all dogs are executed on the night of clutter then what happens to all the dogs which are made the rest of the year does Alana decide to execute dogs are severe? No, it doesn't mean that doesn't mean that

00:23:08--> 00:23:15

so I think the first part of your question kind of like answered it if all dogs are executed on the night of clutter. That's not true.

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

It's not true.

00:23:18--> 00:23:19

I think what you're

00:23:22--> 00:23:24

I think what you're talking about

00:23:26--> 00:23:30

what you're talking about was the question Yeah. Robina I think what you're talking about is

00:23:32--> 00:23:44

when when people talk about Layla to Qatar, they say decree the decree is sat down for the upcoming year is nobody said doors all the drawers are answered on that nobody said that. A lot

00:23:52--> 00:23:56

a man he says just popped here. What are you talking about? If you don't mind me asking.

00:23:57--> 00:24:02

All right, let me say it again. Just kidding. You're gonna have to rewind a minute sorry.

00:24:09--> 00:24:21

Me as question says, I didn't see any information on the site about what time of the day the lies will be they will be at if I'm not mistaken. 1pm Eastern Time, New York Time 1pm Eastern Time, New York time.

00:24:32--> 00:24:55

Nia says what sort of time commitment should we expect? So near the thing with the challenge is it's an attitude. It's not a it's not a class. Right. So with a challenge a person is coming into the challenge. They're making a commitment that says, You know what, like, let me give you an example. If somebody said hey, I have a

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

I mean dog for weight loss or

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

Some health.in Ramadan, let's suppose something like

00:25:06--> 00:25:49

let's suppose something like running a marathon, the easy example. And then in this challenge, if you get motivated and taking action, what does it take to run the marathon, you might come out of this challenge saying, hey, if I want to run a marathon number one, I have to change my attitude like, what's my identity. So instead of calling myself lazy, and procrastinator, I want to start adopting an identity of maybe an athlete is a little too strong at this point of the prisons calling themself lazy procrastinator. They might say, My identity is somebody who cares about health. Yeah, and cares about fitness. So if they and I'll show you how to believe or change, or get a new

00:25:49--> 00:26:31

identity, that's actually something very critical. And then the action that you want to take is an action that is going to commit you to the future commit you in the future, can meet you in the future means that just like somebody says, He'll sign up for a personal trainer, or let me sign up for a marathon or a Spartan Race or something like that. That's happening five months from now, when they take that step, like, for example, in the challenge, now, they're on track to get that done, and it's become real for them. Like I said, that's an easy example. Not all examples are that easy. But that's what we're talking about when we say challenge.

00:26:34--> 00:26:35

Like a synonym for slim.

00:26:39--> 00:26:41

Yes, this is what we're talking about.

00:26:43--> 00:26:47

So that's why I'm saying that it's not about the one hour

00:26:48--> 00:26:59

class that I'm going to be doing. It's a challenge. It's to motivate you to take action and to be with a group of people. We're all in that mindset to take action.

00:27:01--> 00:27:01


00:27:05--> 00:27:07

I believe in Jesus? Yes.

00:27:10--> 00:27:13

All right. If there's one last question,

00:27:15--> 00:27:58

Rosita says can you play at other time where people here on Asia side can watch live on daytime 1pm New York time is 1am. Here at UC Merced. I'm Rosita. So that's the problem with international events is that anytime we choose is going to be bad for somebody. It's going to be bad for somebody even actually, I think a good time for New York people is like in the evenings at 8pm but we always make them do their events and 1am Do our events at 1am so that we can get the UK time to be at a normal time, and hopefully other places around the world it can be kind of like normal, so that's why we aim for 1pm New York

00:28:02--> 00:28:06
