whenever you sit for a lesson or anything like that you can place those brothers that don't need to be on the wall trust me the walls okay I've been I've been informed that the walls are gonna fall down if we all come Why does that come close last time it was better get together you know
by grace icon the as the brothers that no recording with mobiles please no recordings with mobiles Charles brothers they're recording
so kindly asked not to record it's also important that when you come to a gathering you come to a listen strategy or fantasize way when the fan records the mic is not recording anything Why because if
I can play it back
Are we good to go
before I officially started just want to thank the brothers involved in this leisure to organize this whole being on the bank also via Shama masala Rudy, also want to thank the white coats that the brothers are going to be doing the food and shelter. So why coats
Also, they also have
this is all done for free so we're not charging you any money. So please enjoy the room. But the brothers from the white guy stuff but a little box that they're trying to raise some money for someone that needs an operation suit. So if you want to help, please by all means, try to fill up the
salat wa salam ala rasulillah we praise Allah subhana wa tada the king, the master, the Sustainer, the creator of the seven heavens in the earth. And we said Peace and blessings upon his beloved Mohammed Salam wanting
my brothers and sisters the biggest gifts that are most of Allah, Allah can ever give anyone. The biggest gift, the biggest prison
please, tonight, we're not here to be entertained.
A lot he needed to Yeah, we were there. We heard the talk.
Why we should sit here with a pure intention that will ask Allah subhana wa Taala that he opens our hearts with every story that you listen to or every Heidi for every area that is mentioned. My brothers, the Quran is not a storybook.
Every words precise, every letter every vowel precise for you. So whenever you hear a story here, how do you apply this idea to so apply it to your life? When you hear a story of the Sahaba? Don't just think well you know that the Sahaba did a great thing. No, you should. You should think about yourself and say what would I do?
How can I apply this in my life?
So my brother's the greatest gift that Allah can ever give anyone?
Is the gift of even
to be a believer to be awesome. It's the pinnacle.
For you to be a Muslim is an honor.
That no matter how much we speak about it now you'll never know that we'll never know it's about you. It's not until you stand before Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Resurrection. When you understand the value of La Isla Baba.
Today you have it for free, really most of us didn't pay anything for it.
So you don't know the actual value of a punishment or even
you speak to someone that was maybe in a period of his life he was a non Muslim, then he accepts Islam.
Then you understand the value of God.
Such as the value of Black Law law such as the value of land I love these words that you and I can say they are so easy, but we think nothing of it. For us to tell you they'll say La la la la towards the value of
mousai salat wa salam very interested in profit. An amazing profit had a unique relationship with Allah. Again, I want you to leave this story.
Moosa was a very unique he had
The The only prophet that spoke directly to Allah subhanho wa Taala there was no jabril in between.
So Musa one day he asks a license Yama give me a give me a supplication. Give me something I can remember you by. But I wanted to be unique.
I have to move
Find this one. Yeah.
So what's the ask? So give me give me a special supplication that listen to the request Zilla give me a Give me something I can remember you by giving me something that no other person has been given before me I want to be unique special customer so let's
So most of the things in surfaces are already saved
and they've been profit that came before me said no, no, no, no, no, no, I was hoping for something more
customized for me you need to the last time with our safety system.
If the seven heavens and what it contains one place on one end of the scale, and this
was placed on the above, this Karim Allah Allah Allah Allah will outweigh the seven heavens in the earth.
But you might not know the value of that.
But on the Day of Resurrection will let you understand the value of this caliber you will know what it means to be believed on that day.
Why my brother's the greatest love the greatest gift that Allah subhanaw taala can give you his email
and it's unfortunate because let's be real tonight.
Let's be serious let's not beat around the bush.
How do you and I judge a loss love nowadays?
Even the religious brother even the person that's a lot of myself wants to be in the Muslim League. And then I sort of kept Mashallah you know, very nice. Supposedly supposed to be a face of Deen even this brother did them in their house you know unless pop out of lip service run on the death resurrection we will have a look at your lips while I was at your house i was i was gonna look at
the gun in our hearts how do we measure our lives love
let's be real.
Allah His love for us the measuring stick for Muslim
How much Luna has given me within that so much Allah Subhana Allah Allah Allah, Allah
Tell me what he will do your carries. I can tell you how much he loves you.
Tell me are you renting? Why are you buying? Have you purchased your house? Why you renting? Why? Because I can tell you how much Allah loves you.
And now I'm sure
Brother, please be real with yourself. We can
Who are we kidding?
Well, my my brothers, you know, sometimes it's difficult for us to grasp and to understand, because the truth is we've been away. I know that we're Muslims by name. But in truth, we've been away from Deen. For centuries, our families with money has been so far away from being that you know, to live to live there. There are still people who believe that being a Muslim simply means you pray your five prayers, you pass them a bomb, you give us a cat and if we can get a hug, or then good on you. And that's it. And that's it.
So how I never knew this Islam
Sahaba they never knew this Islam.
And that's why this particular habit is so famous was the five pillars of Islam, the five pillars of Islam.
really in depth, we don't even know what that means. during any build. I tell him Well, I've got five pillars here. What do you want me to do with that?
If I say to you, look, I've got five pillars.
I have foundation. Does that mean have a building?
Have a building? But you got nothing. What do you have? You have foundation that now I can build on? But if that's all you're walking around with that you got foundation
You're claiming Look how beautiful my building is how big your building you're talking about.
If you think so really if you think Islam is just your five daily prayers and giving your journey and fasting Ramadan if you think this is what Islam is the Prophet of Allah He says, Islam that Islam was established.
These are the foundations then the slim is built on that.
We measure loss not based on dounia
Allah gave him kids Allah didn't give me keys there for a longest I mean
they've been in the country for 20 years. They've already bought a house. I've been in the country for 40 years and I'm still renting a llama site me.
I'm driving a 99 model car the brothers got a 2014 car alarm last night, me.
A lot hasn't opened the doors on me.
My brothers is dunya is the measuring stick to measure our laws love.
Happy paying attention. If dunya is the measuring stick that we can measure Muslim, then Allah hated your profit more than anyone on this earth.
Would anyone in this room accept such a statement?
Can you even say that a light and His Prophet
habibollah hyla Hulk Allah Allah, Allah desta testifies, and never mind I love you. Allah says you're the greatest creation I ever created.
Yet when you look at the dunya that you and I were wasting our lives with. When you look at this dunya that we've sold our Deen we've sold our F.
And we've sold our
belt to see Runa
says amazingly, do you choose this life after the hereafter?
Do you really choose this life over the year after? What an amazing question Allah says what's what's going on? Where? Where are the brains? Where's the lucky?
If you don't use the measuring stick then what? They really hated our beloved prophet the most one.
His wife is Shama de la talana, Alberta. She narrates the Ottawa nephew. In the sahadi Emily's Listen, my brothers and my sisters too. I've been told that there's over 50 sisters. Tonight I want everyone to listen and tune in.
Many of the sisters you know they always tell me I wish I could be married to the Prophet of Allah.
Are you with him?
And he barely prays
Oh, it would be so nice really wouldn't be nice.
You know what is the number one friend for divorces nowadays? Anyone know?
Sasha devata Lana, she sent to her nephew.
She says what my mind if you buy a love we use the beautiful moon then the full moon then the full moon to complete months use the past as buy to complete months use the past as viable and not the single flame. You know cooking and no boiling of any soap. She says not a seagull fly would believe in any of the nine houses of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam for two months consecutive.
was amazing. says my auntie How did you leave? She says the man who?
We lived off base in the water for two months.
my brothers and I don't want to take too much of your time. Our purpose on earth is not dunya
dunya is not Terra?
understand my message dunya is not Haram. But dunya is not your unity. Unity for dunya.
Don't think that Allah, Allah is going to be impressed whether you buy a house or you don't buy a house. This doesn't impress on law.
Don't think that the last Paragon is going to be impressed with the bottom of your car. This doesn't impress Allah. Allah. Allah doesn't care if you got married, you didn't get married. You had kids you didn't have kids. How many houses bedrooms on sweets flush, doesn't care about this stuff. Located near the problem it says on the low side. So no one panic.
He says no Canada
About my second
Batman, the prophet of Allah says, If for argument's sake, it doesn't, but if this world this world that you and I, we love you and I really love this world so much, how many brothers they don't even attend Juma Salah. They don't attend to my selectors in front of my bus data. Let me go, what do you want me to do then? Please your boss?
Who's your boss?
How many brothers don't even pray their five praise? Not because he doesn't want to pray him. Says brother, it's very difficult at work.
Have you been? Are you alive? So you can worship your work? Or you can worship a lot?
Which one is it?
Which one is it?
located at the dunya that is this world for argument's sake. It equals let's say it had the value in the eyes of Allah, the wind of a mosquito?
What's the value of a wing of the mosquito to any one of us here? What's the value of it?
What two wings and probably decorate something with it.
But are we really the winner mosquito?
The Prophet of Allah says if it equaled in the eyes of Allah, the winner of a mosquito, Allah subhanho wa Taala would not have had given a single careful, a sip of water to drink.
cars and empires and businesses and palaces and women and power and status have even taken in abundance.
For our new claim, for our new claim What? For our check to the 32nd God on earth.
The abundance of money? Does that mean that
you want to miss your most loved in your life? My brother, my sister asked me So where am I as far as these these concerns?
Were Where am I?
Where do you see?
Look at our lives, my brothers will not we become so consumed in this world. It's incredible. It's incredible.
And I find that amazing. Now sharing this innovative with the brothers.
I say you know a lot. It's amazing. Some of us will reach 2530. Some of us even older than 30 years older than 30. Again, you've been alive for 30 years for crying out loud. You've been sleeping for 30 years. And in 30 years, you still know the same three, four, sort of four and that you memorized when you were five, six years old. Still the same. You haven't increased the medicine layer. And a lot of items we've been reading in
the last 30 years of living 30 years. Some of us were older than this. Some of us are 40 and 50. We've got kids
50 years of living and you haven't increased your poor and not a single verse.
Interesting. What are you doing with your time? What are you doing with your life?
Well, it's just me I understand I'm busy, happy busy with work.
Why was I designed Why did Allah create me?
What to live like others?
Is this the masters of my life? He was pushing me to study then you need to go to uni. Then after you go to uni you have to get jobs you know try and find the job and then when you find a job then you want to work hard then you go by health and got paid off for the next four years. That's the 40s when he paid off the House Renovation didn't want to renovate the house
and then apply them I buy and thanks for coming
don't kidding my brother's
was a Korean does to worshipping
Allah subhanaw taala He created us to learn to call other souls in Allah Almighty the very reason you're alive. Allah, Allah created you to establish deed in your life and leading others. That's the purpose of your life.
You came into this world naked and you leave this world naked and everything in between stays back.
Have you ever buried someone and you and they totally you know and that person took his belongings with him ever?
What's consuming your life what's consuming your time?
You know luckily my brothers I find that amazing that this brother still still to nail brothers and sisters still till now. They're not even consistent on the praise.
How can you not be consistent on your praise man?
Brothers and sisters who still don't pray,
I asked you why alone? How is it that you still don't pray?
How and when and when did the last part of Allah ever fail you ever?
Allah, Allah, the One who created us from nothing.
And he gave us our lives and he gave us our limbs and he gave us our families and he gave us our home. And he's
the one who gave me everything. I was the one who never failed you ever I was the one who you are your heart. Every time he beats seeks permission from Allah, Allah. Did Allah ever once a notary? Did Allah ever one say no to your lungs? Did Allah Allah ever once say no to any limb of your body? Did Allah ever failed me once? once did he ever?
every single night when you go to sleep, your soul leaves your body and in the morning almost replaces, he brings back your soul and he puts it back in dollars per dollar ever one save your soul? No, don't come back.
One that's given me all this alone that does all this for me. How is it that you honestly sincerely you don't have 20 minutes in a 24 hour day, you don't have 20 minutes to appraise the banking.
You know your boss, he pays you up to $300 a day, if you're trading
to $300 a day, your boss for two $300 a day he earns you for eight hours. He owns you.
He tells you where the job is. He tells you what time to start and you don't open your mouth.
For $200 a day my boss owns me.
But the one that created me and gave me everything that I have, and gave me the things that are distracting me from Allah.
And even that thing that's distracting you from
some of the stories that are in prayer.
That was that certainly Allah gave you that
I don't have 20 minutes my whole day to pray and thank you.
You know, my brother's every single day the angel of death, he stares you in the face? Did you know that?
Do you stop seeing?
Who stops the angel of death from taking yourself? Is it your money?
Is it your employer
giving you more time or gives you more time to
buy another house?
Give me more time,
more time to do
what what else is given more time? Maybe Maybe they'll wake up and repent. Maybe Maybe they'll wake up and come back to me.
My brothers you know, I really don't want to drag this on for too long. I want to make my message that you know my brothers and sisters our wife in this world is social.
You don't have much time.
Your plans and your dreams and your desires and your hopes and your ambitions they far far far supersede the time you actually have left.
Who knows the drive you make when you wake up your nose
Alhamdulillah the or praise been to the one just listen to the drive you make when you wake up. We teach it to our kids but we have no understanding of it.
We teach that we actually teach the drive to our children, but really no understanding of what's going on.
When you wake up the Prophet says some of
you may or Praise be to the one Alhamdulillah levy
that gave us life bagdana
Never mind what happened last week. This morning. Every single one of you was there.
Who gave you like
what your iPhone gave you like
your brother set the alarm in rain.
One of my brothers every day in your life is an AMA is a blessing.
You know in the last in the last month or buried maybe five six brothers, all of which were under the age of 14
then the ones I know that lol and you know, there's always other communities and other people you know like that the news just doesn't reach you.
A few weeks ago I buried my grandfather
My daddy from what the family could agree
you know, those that came back then the
proper paperwork, so now it knows exactly how it will be easier. So from what we could agree amongst the family, we said the minimum minimum minimum us Angela five
my grandma is the sister that is 115
based on your remember when I married in this era, so she's going off milestones and landmarks 105.
And my grandfather was, wasn't a millionaire, but was pretty wealthy.
In fact, my grandfather was old school very old mentality didn't even trust banks. Trust the law on the
seas to collect his money in cash.
Basically, his money in cash.
For those that come from the Arab world back then I can understand why people thought like this, you know, and trust governments and banks
to collect as many supporting caches to put in boxes, then because he trusted no one wouldn't even tell his wife and kids where you put the money.
So that was fine. That was all right.
Up until he lost his marbles and he didn't know what was going on. And we didn't know what was going on. Well, money, money, money, how much
but remember, this money that you collected
might benefit from 105 with very limited
makeup like the day he was born.
And we also very briefly my baby that that was a premature like didn't even leave an hour. And look a lot of other shows you 105 not even an hour or anything in between a lot can take any time any place. Anyhow, he questions a lot doesn't get questions.
And he will not I'm still thinking about a lot plenty of time how maybe my brother and sister How much time do you think we have?
Most of you can use older than 30 difficult questions just raise your hand by less
than 30. That means, according to the hadith of Rasulullah, sallAllahu wasallam, you've already gone over the halfway line.
You've already gone over the halfway mark
with the increased control.
But don't worry.
Some of us think that the Angel of Death is going to shoot me name.
sounds funny, but really this is how we deal with life.
How many of us do get shot? Or Gee, someone died? He really like what were you thinking there's gonna be forever
What are you shocked about? It's not It's not that. It's not that but what
I didn't think was so soon.
What do you think is gonna happen? Well, the Angel of Death is gonna shoot you an email.
So I had a tip off, you know?
I'll be there.
Come on. Really?
And you know, also holla This is from a loss wisdom that we don't know our date of death
from a last resort,
if we knew our date of death
by no means am I trying to be funny? No, if I knew my date of death
number one, I definitely wouldn't be here now. That's 100% number two, I definitely wouldn't have this bead. And I wouldn't be wearing these clothes.
I'll go out and do whatever I want. And then has the whole my day. Pack up. Go to Hajj. repent to Allah, tala actomyosin humble sit down in the machine as the last
illness and then die wow such a nice bit
and maybe if I die I might have my finger like this and they want to so long straighter for those 11
so my brothers what what are your life is far more serious than this?
What did you achieved in your life? What have you prepared for your athlete?
What have you prepared? know we've worked so hard on it. You know, we've worked so hard to establish our business or our families or whatever it is. We've worked so hard to establish But what have you prepared for the year after?
What have you prepared for that which is never going to end?
What if we prepared for the month of Ramadan is one to two weeks away?
The month of Ramadan is two weeks away. What are you prepared so holidays to get ready for Ramadan six months in advance.
Six months, six months.
Six months it shows you how clean and ready they work for.
Some of us, we don't even know what day, what day it starts.
So please, we're brothers, we're money, we don't want to waste our wives don't want to waste their lives.
So sincerely asking, so in the last week, what have you done within the last week? What have you done?
What have you done?
How much? How much have you sincerely prepared?
So please, my brothers were why our time on this earth is social. And this dunya that you're working so hard for, I'm not saying it's wrong.
But it's not your purpose. It's not the box of we're not here for that. You're leaving Habibi, you're leaving, trust me, you're leaving. If anyone was going to escape this, then surely it would have been a pseudo loss on the low on himself. But even he had to like,
please, my brothers and my sisters, my fathers and my, like, our fathers and our mothers Wake up, wake up.
You know, a lot lately, I've been doing some useful, okay. And parents call me all the time, brother, my son, or my daughter, these young kids, you know, the youth, you know, they've gone off the track, you know, they've lost their ways. So you get down to the, to the youth, and you know, you start to see some shocking things. But you know, what's more shocking, is when you go to these houses, and you see the mothers and the fathers, you understand
the basis of the
way they all come together.
Right, you know, like, I'm telling you, there's so many fathers that tells me that come see my son is a disobedient child. So you go there and you start seeing the kid and you start talking to me thinking you know, talk to me What's on your mind? What's this? And there's just this anger. bottled up anger. Anyway, come on. So then at the end, you start to realize
that was your father
and then the final one I should come to voting what's happening. Brother these kids you know, this country has destroyed our children in our backyard. We went like this I think
the song so many times.
Brother, what do you do? are working two jobs.
One guy he sent me he drives a taxi. He says he drives 14 hours a day.
One particular family the kids 16 years old he hates his mother 16 years old. punches holes in his mouth
father was angry let's look at this beautiful house. I built this house for my kids. And you know I work so hard to buy them nice things to Mother You built a house but she destroyed your home
you're working 14 hours or 14 hours on the original Rachel key
Who did you leave that job to?
This country isn't really this country
brothers are working 12 hour days 12 hour days
I'm saving for a rainy day rainy day
what rainy day are you talking about
you know I walk into homes and I see husband and wife husband and wife they living in the same house under the one roof but really the living two separate lives
two separate lives
brother works 10 hour days then comes home he doesn't want his wife doesn't want to talk to his kids then on the weekend is fishing
yeah a bass fishing boys and then
what do you do with your life?
on the table
so please my brothers you know I just opened another can of worms but you know, please reply you know? We're really where are you going with your life? What are you doing? Stop wasting your time with it. Stop wasting your time that is around the corner. That is around the corner my brother's
Sahaba was scared of death. The Prophet of Allah was scared of this. And you will
lose control. Brother Don't worry relax.
That was just me. It was it was a cooler shade.
my brother you're so confident that a lot of sense was met he was at
a normal job you were promised me
By stable skin and learning concern,
what you understood the area better than if the student
was sorry and what your interpretation of the Hadith was better than other workers.
Who are we kidding?
Do you think that the day you stand before a lawyer is just going to be easy?
I think sometimes people think that it's come to die resurrection. Okay. Hello, everyone was the western
wisdom, wisdom of Muslims.
The Prophet, he says on that day is 50,000 years long. 50,000 years long. One day 50,000 years long.
He says you'll be naked barefoot and uncircumcised.
to sign this hadith Chateau de la Tanana.
I said this hadith one cinemagic so one of the brothers got upset sister but how can you mention that had a phenomenal 12 year old daughter? Why mentioning this uncircumcised business school?
Remember, driving home actually feel bad?
Not for anyone if the best of the best of men is Mohamed Salah Salim if he had no problem saying this to his wife, what should I be ashamed to say?
The Prophet of Allah says that they will be paid naked barefooted uncircumcised. Really? Isn't that enough for me to tell you that you're going to be naked?
Doesn't that already?
And if I told you better, you'd be naked on the Day of Resurrection is not enough for you to paint the picture of what it's going to be like. But what the prophet of Allah filled and he told me no, no, no, you're naked, barefoot uncircumcised
because he's telling you some of our values that even that little piece of flesh, even a piece of force in the clifty when you only few days old, when I kind of love you a few days all your Pua but he's telling you even that piece of force in that lift you may be ease ago, even that Allah subhanaw taala is going to replace because what an inch of you will escape him on that day.
Don't worry when
the Prophet Allah says, Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah relax when you think we know once you grow up, everyone becomes an extremist, you know?
But nothing. I'm an extremist. Put me aside to ask you something. Like who understood the better you are? abubaker?
Please, yeah, it just felt me answer this. It's not a trick question. Who do you think understands the better we as people sitting here are the Sahaba
a confident way to trick questions, but he understood them better.
So have is
why is it they were scared and you will know we're not scared and we're not worried?
Why is it that they were promised? And Allah said I am pleased with them and they are pleased with me. And Allah said nothing to us.
They were scared and worried. Cruise Control brother relax. I got this room.
A lot knows what's in my heart.
We're taking our life far too lightly.
So please, my brothers, you know, we need to wake up. We need to come back and direct this up now and on January I'm ending.
You know, with not much but what do I do now? Okay, brother, you all right? You movie motivated me? What do you want me to do? I say this, depending on your level of demand and where you're at because everyone's different, but this is what I say. I say please, my brother and my sister just do one thing from tonight. Choose one thing that's missing in your life and style, but never leave them.
We come we get you know, he these talks. We get so emotional. We read the building. We're thinking tomorrow morning I'm gonna be a member.
That's why we works.
Willing to stop being emotional people.
All I'm asking is you do one thing you promised yourself between you and Allah you promise a lot one thing and you promise that you're never gonna go back on this. And I don't care how small it is. Just as long as your premises and see a lot I will never go back. I'm going to start this fall. I'm gonna stop this and it's a genuine from us.
You know, my brothers, this is you know, we need to understand, what does the Lord want from me the Prophet of Allah, He says,
He says, Allah loves the small action Allah.
Allah loves the small action that's consistent.
Allah loves the small action that's consistent. More than the big action. That's a one off. So I'll give you an example. Let's say we did a fundraiser, and I got emotional.
Don't forget, don't forget.
Some of us, you know,
this is our attitude with a lot.
One point we had an event.
But anyway, basically, the brother clearly did something wrong simply Brother, please, you know, we've really advertised and whatever. So you can't do this. But put money in this machine.
So what does that mean? You put money in the middle? What what? What does that mean? What you've got special privileges
that are Tama owes you something? Is that what that means?
A lot more money in the machine.
You know, so let's say I get the $10,000. But then I never did anything after that. For the next 20 years, you know, you don't have any terms of my older brother have the labor that has four times or four times.
I'm not praising myself, I'm just letting you know I did hatch four times. But that's pricing yourself. And the fact that you just mentioned that you've just lost all the rewards.
Did you do hash four times, so you can tell me so that you can impress me or did you do it so that you can earn a lot of pleasure? But did you do
something people might come back and you might call him?
than the smile. You know, you were the first one to smile. But I'm telling you the Taj Mahal.
So I gave $10,000 in charity, but then never ever get charity again.
And then someone else he gives $5 in charity, we let's just say every jumar he has a system in his life. Every Jumanji, you know, he never leaves the Jamaat except the gifts my brother's name, I think $5 Come on, man. Even a kid can do that. But that's a problem.
How many tumors have come and gone and he didn't even get that $5 Yeah, I'm sure there's been other times we we did give some but how many tumors past you we didn't give anything.
So this brother He gives $5 every Jamal is consistent.
And the brother ended up dying and for many years he was giving the $5 but he's $5 when you calculate it over the many years didn't didn't add up to the amount of my one off 10,000 his money is more is more beloved in a lot size than my money. Why? Because he was consistent and it actually didn't stop I was one off I got emotional get the money never to be seen again.
So what did he do? I don't care what did he do? Just wake up from a snake or move
in front of Allah subhanaw taala the challah as of tonight I'm going to stop the cinema like Well, you're not going to start this good day tomorrow.
And when you make this promise, when you make this promise
because now the month of Ramadan is coming up, I'm sure most of you are thinking look Rabbi Look, there's only two weeks for Ramadan salad, you know, just just just extract like these two weeks now what am I this is exactly how shaitan works. If you don't start tonight, you failed already.
You need to stop now. Because I was gonna tell you whether there's any two weeks, let me clean up my next you know, and then I'll start on the first day of Ramadan. Then come the first day of Ramadan. You know because of the say Ramadan because of the night before you stayed up until midnight. 12 o'clock, two o'clock in the morning, because it's our last one before we start fasting. You ended up sleeping.
And because he stepped in professionally wake up.
Second man next.
Have you ever done have come and gone and we are and we promised for a while we didn't do anything
wrong in the first few days and you know what? I'm sure this machine does the same thing. The first few days the people are praying outside. Then after a week. There's no one come to 27th month they're praying and the neighbors
next day, no one's
Juma is busy for Juma what's the members? Usually outside
towards the back Mashallah.
Exactly okay beautiful. It's such a good number. Yeah Jamal is good number, the NASA
I'm not gonna tell you
the same unlawful jump is the same
comes up as low Why? Because the band, there's no need
so, I mentioned this for a reason. So when you make an intention, I don't care what your intention is, it's up to you I don't know your life I don't know where you're at in your team. Make a solid intention. But here's the catch. Many of us we make a beautiful intention but usually what happens is we get emotional and the intention is really usually to be some sort of somebody that is thinking well you know what, he's right I've wasted my life from now on your life promise you I'm going to read wanders off every single day the brother bench he struggles to read
what's going to happen to this guy
he's gonna come to read up he's said we'll come tomorrow he's pumped he's excited he opens up around to read this
is not a battle
so my brother when you make an intention to be realistic This is something you can actually achieve
you know God told me brother half a page of Quran imagine honest decency imagine you can meet the two half a page of God and and you've been doing it for the last five years? Where would you call me now?
You'd be so much better than what it is I'm sure.
Haha, so we're going to make an intention it's going to be reasonable is going to be realistic intention not something brother, baby praise brother. I'm going to pray my present image every single day inshallah from now on.
Brother all that's a nice intention. But just relax, go
to relax. And I'll drive you to meet you know, that looking child? I know. Definitely. I know. Definitely. That shirt. Please. My work carries all my schedules. I know. I can make no matter what that says the promise alijah I will never miss.
And what you need to do with your intention is and this is the last thing that I want to mention is the most important thing. With your intention. This is what you need to do.
Because we're human beings, there's gonna come a day where you don't read your half a page, there's got to come a date. You're not sure man. There's gonna come a day something happened. I couldn't pray my shirt.
Yeah, he's the path. We will make inventions. But none of us ever put a penalty to that intention.
So you probably think you wouldn't even penalty what like a parking point. Yeah, pretty much like a parking point. And I'll tell you why. You need to know who your enemy is a lecture on. And you need to know how to do this. So this one, I said,
let's say you agreed to do half a page of GoDaddy.
So with your word with your promise, you say a lot from this day forward, I'm gonna read half a page of code.
But you're my promise me that when the day comes,
that I don't read my half a page.
Then the next day
I'm going to read two pages
and the half that I missed the day before.
Not only that,
but you should put yourself a penalty to pay in charity. And it shouldn't be enough so that it breaks you but it should be enough that pinches you
now, you know I'll pay a Bala
advance for the whole year Leave me alone
has to be enough to convince you
that you know what men I felt
you know will lie You know, the decency you know, it's gonna happen.
You know, if we make the intentions of this, you know what would happen?
when the day comes that you wish to have a pension. And shavon sees that the next day you actually read two and a half pages and you paid whatever amount of money it is in charity, you don't show
the next time you come to miss your half a page by Ally's gonna tell you brother please you sit down, I'm gonna bring this off to you.
It's gonna be the most of us gonna open up we're gonna tell me please, please just read your offer page. Because if you don't, tomorrow, you're gonna cost me two and a half pages and
I'm happy with the half a page.
So this is why
I just want to ask very quickly on some of the brothers to share their intentions, thinking your life story. And then give me advice for the community. Just as a brother, he that's happy to share one of these things.
Ensuring that he starts in Java as of today, not only not to expose, but rather to motivate one another in Sharma, who's got an intention use of
I believe half a page. But if you're good there, if your current is good, then a page is very, very easy for those who deal with
how much how much in the penalty, budget the extra penalty
for sharing information
you want to do all your applications after the summer while
you're not if you just died on this
device, and you said you ever read a democracy after every summer, the only thing that will stand between this person and gender is that
these little things that we that we underestimate.
That's a massive thing. But choose a specific goal that you're gonna do no matter what. And don't overburden yourself because we want you to stay steadfast. Ross and Charles are sharing the vision.
There's no one I feel like I've wasted my time I feel like this one hour has been wasted. You know, I drove five hours to get here to exchange money on the way and stuff.
Don't make me feel like I've wasted my time. I just want to see some of the intentions that we can move forward in sha Allah, Allah no one else was the brother in the back.
This this soon as getting more and more, you know, what the Salah is, even if you pray the one
pray your life so important.
The young brother
you want to learn a new sort of
get married yet?
You want to be more consistent in South Africa. You know what I like? You know, now some of these trustworthy, there is trustworthy ones, believe it or not, but there is some trustworthy charity organizations where you can do like a direct debit. Or what would you that is that you know, that even if I forget and I become callous, coming directly out of your bank account, right? And I can do it on whatever you want, like $1 a day or $5 a day, whatever it is, and then that way it's consistent. That way every day in the month of Ramadan, you do the act of charity, even though you're not I mean, because I'm sure you get busy or whatever. I think that's an excellent thing to
do. Even worldwide, even even $1 a day at least when you die not a day in your life when by accepting the the act of charity. So we're
gonna sponsor Mashallah, orphanages, but the Prophet Allah is the love. Yeah, choose one that you like, that you trust that you think is, but you need to be specific. You can do your actions, you know, like when work comes along, and I get bonuses and I want to give, that's fine, but have a minimum. Yeah, no matter what I'm gonna send my $30 a month or you know, whatever it is, have your minimum. And that's the promise that you make whatever you give extra then that's between you and Allah in Norway, or
x or whatever it is.
Imagine when you start your day with budget in the budget. It gives you an indication what the rest of the day is going to be like.
The food is ready and surely Our intention is to go outside.
Once again, my father was one of the brothers and sisters.
