So Mr. Li Kumara matola who bought a cat two brothers and sisters, this is your brother Muslim Kahn. And today cello tarla. Let's talk about career choices. I'm not going to tell you exactly what you should be studying. But what I want you to think about is, whatever career path you choose just some of the things that you should consider from an Islamic perspective to make that career path healthy, and most importantly rewarding for you and for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So here's the first thing to think about when you choose a career, make sure that first of all that career is headed so that you get into a Hillel company or organization or movement, whatever the issue is, just make sure that

00:00:57--> 00:01:41

that particular choice is 101. That particular field is going to keep you in a good healthy and happier lifestyle. Second thing is, if your sister, then you want to make sure that your mom is also aware of what your career choice is. And according to some scholars, it's actually encouraged for the sister to even seek permission from her Muharram before she makes that career choice. So make sure what I would say here is just make sure that your mom is also supportive of whatever career choice you make in sha Allah. The third thing to keep in mind is extremely important, important, no matter what you do, no matter what career choice you make, make sure that in sha Allah Allah tala,

00:01:41--> 00:02:19

you choose a career that is not only beneficial to you, but also to your fellow Muslims, that fellow brothers and sisters around the world, make sure that they themselves could also benefit from your expertise. And the reason for that, I think, is quite obvious, at least at this point, these skills that you have, they would be able to benefit from them because like the prophets, I said them says the Muslims, they're going to be our primary concern, we have to look after ourselves before we try to look after others. So make sure that if you're becoming a nurse or a doctor, or things like that, these are good fields, and these are fields that inshallah the Muslims will benefit from

00:02:19--> 00:02:58

tremendously. So it's something for you to really, really consider when you do make a career choice. last and final piece of advice in sha Allah is more of a personal thing, a personal advice for yourselves. And that is, make sure that the career choice at the end of the day is something that you love, when you consider it all of these points that we mentioned, try to make sure that that career choice, you will love it, you have 110% in it all the time. It's something that even if itself, even in and of itself, it also brings some kind of reward and satisfaction for you at the end of the day. So if you happen to be like a journalist or something, then at least for a

00:02:58--> 00:03:31

journalist, you're always reading, you're always into books, you're always studying, you're always writing, you're always researching, you're doing all of those things. So what the career is essentially doing for you is you never stop learning, you're always increasing yourself, you're always becoming a better human being a smarter person, and so on. That's the key to being a Muslim. And that's the key when you make a good career choice. I think the final final thing I know I said that was the last one. But let me just squeeze in one more thing that you want to consider. And that is, of course brothers and sisters, remember that whatever you do, at the end of the day, remember

00:03:31--> 00:04:13

that you make a choice, but Allah azza wa jal has already made a choice for you. So if you do get into a career choice, and in the beginning, it seems amazing and incredible, and you love it. But then after maybe four or five years of your life in that particular career starts to get dull, it starts to get boring. However, the Muslims are still benefiting from you, your family still supports you, you're still able to live a good lifestyle, and everybody is pleased. It's one of those things that's for you to think about that perhaps maybe allies will wants me to be here. This is what Allah has wanted me to do. And maybe for me, I can't find any personal fulfillment in it, or it's not

00:04:13--> 00:04:44

making me that happy. But what will make me happy is as long as I know that I make a lot of social happy, that is what's going to bring happiness to my life. So those are the things in shuttleq you might want to think about before you make that career choice. It's important. We're talking about the rest of your life here. You're going to be involved in one thing routinely every single day. So you want to make sure you do it right in sha Allah not just for yourself, but also for Allah subhanho wa Taala does that malachite and guys Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
