Salam Alaikum Welcome back to Allah loves. So this next quality is one that builds off of the last two qualities, and it's how it manifests itself and methodology and in your actual work ethic, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in the law, you hibou either I mean, I had to come to Milan and you to clean up, that Allah loves that when any one of you undertakes a task that they do, it's right that they do it with due diligence that they give it its perfection. Now, let me compare, it's gone. This is the concept the word is its bond, which means excellent work ethic or due diligence. It's gone to Exxon, Exxon, which is excellence that we spoke about in the broader sense

00:00:56--> 00:01:36

and trying to always place higher standards on ourselves refers to the motivation and refers to the drive that we have with Allah subhanho wa Taala. It's Khan refers to the higher work ethic. So not just the not the higher standard in motivation, but the higher standard in work ethic, which is a testimony to the higher standard of motivation as well. So if you have it on due diligence, and your work ethic, and you're detail oriented, that speaks to a superior sense of motivation, as well, that speaks to a greater sense of Exxon as well. And this is especially true, you know, if you look at our Islamic history, and you see the way that we have this incredible architecture, this incredible

00:01:36--> 00:02:10

calligraphy, all of these things where there was great detail paid attention to things, these were people that maintain that great detail and everything that they did. And so it carried over and a superior work ethic as well, which led to the advancement of so much. And I want us to really pay attention to this in regards to the work that we do, particularly when it's Islamic work, when it's service work. You know, too often, we excuse bad work in the name of it being a good cause. Right? So we say, you know what I'm volunteering, I'm doing this for the sake of Allah. So it's okay, if it's sloppy, I don't have to pay attention. You know, it's not like I'm getting paid for this. It's

00:02:10--> 00:02:48

not like I'm at work. And you know, I got my boss, so I got to worry about, wait, who's paying you with Islamic work? And who are you doing it for? it's greater than your Boston, it's greater than any money that can be given to you, right? You do things with a superior work ethic, because you have a superior motivation. So Allah loves to see that in the work that we do, whether it's secular or religious, that we pay attention to details, that we have a higher standard that we place on ourselves. And, you know, axon, is usually spoken about in the capacity of worship. If you are worshipping Allah for Allah, then it better be distinguished worship. Likewise, if you are working

00:02:48--> 00:03:29

for Allah for Allah, then it better be distinguished in regards to your work ethic as well. So paying attention to the details, making sure that we do things right, bringing the spirit of ersan and the ethic, the work ethic of its bond, merging those two things together, excellence in higher standard and motivation with a higher standard in the work that we do as well. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant those two things to us so that it shows both in our drive and in the result of that drive, that it shows both in our worship and in our work. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us beloved to him, and to allow this to be a testimony for us on the Day of Judgment alone, I mean, is

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

often a little high dose and I like to live in the council.
