You're listening to the productive Muslim podcast, season three, episode four

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

of your heartbeat challenge.

00:00:17--> 00:00:56

Today, your ask reading is on ways to be charitable in Amazon when you do not have money. So if you are a student, or if you are somebody who is struggling financially, there are many ways to give sadaqa that don't involve money. And this is an article that gives you six really beautiful ways to do so. And what this article so beautifully reminds us is that our actions are rewarded according to our intentions. So we don't need to look at someone and say, well, they have the means to give far more than I do. If your intentions are sincere, then allow me reward you more than since he would reward someone else. And that's why we always need to focus on purifying our intention. And one of

00:00:56--> 00:01:38

the key ways here giving charity is making the app. Now, that is something that I think is really, really beautiful. Having been an editor for productive Muslim, I would say that probably the most rewarding part of working with productive Muslim is to do is that people give in the comments of articles, I always make a joke with my friends that I pray that maybe one of the many dollars that I have received from productive Muslim comments or get me into agenda. It's really an amazing tool that you can really use to help someone if you don't have money, then make Seneca using the app. And now that leads me on to your next task, which is going to be PM, Elaine kamalame. I will be honest,

00:01:38--> 00:02:13

it's not something that I do quite often if I do it at all. But I remember speaking to one person about something that I really wanted in life, and she asked me Oh, so do you do? Okay, I'm allayed. And I looked at her and I said, No, she looked Okay, then you don't want it. I said, What do you mean? She said, okay, you know, if you want something from your parents, what do you do, you go above and beyond you make sure that house is spotless, you cook their favorite meal, you are so sweet to them, you have the most amount of patience with whatever they give to you, even if they're mean to you, whatever, because you know, you want something from them. And so you're trying to be on

00:02:13--> 00:02:49

your best behavior for them. She said, How does Allah know that you want something? She's like, Did you expect that you would just stay as you are? And you know, you make too and you expect a lot to give it to you? Is that how it works? I said no. She's like, are you waking up in the night, frustrating to Allah and asking him for something. And I sat down, I was like, Oh, I'm not doing any of those things. Actually, she said, Well, there you go. She said, in order for you to truly demonstrate how sincere you are to Allah pmln is a really, really good form of a better that does that it's you're sacrificing sleep, worshipping your Lord in secret in the night when no one can

00:02:49--> 00:03:25

see. And that's why tonight, you know, if clear Monday is not something that you've ever done, we're going to use this detox challenge to start it to start incorporating it as an easy habit that we can do. At the end of your career melee, you're going to make a sincere, heartfelt laugh for someone, it could be somebody that you love, or it could be someone that has hurt you and you want to make love for them. Or it could be someone who you have actually wronged and you want to make a sincere drive for them. And your last task for the day, is you're going to listen to a 10 minute Islamic lecture. As part of detoxing our heart, one of the things that we have to do, we have to take care of what we

00:03:25--> 00:04:01

are watching and what we are hearing as well. So you need to make sure that you are feeding your soul many good things. It's not good enough in a diet to just decide I'm not going to eat fried food. No, you also have to make sure you're incorporating healthy foods and that you're eating them as well. So as well as cutting out music and TV series, we are going to start taking in more things that will stimulate us spiritually and intellectually. So your 10 minutes I'm electric can be a lecture of your choice. There is no specific topic, but whatever you listen to, I want you to comment it below. And I want you to tell me what you learned from that lecture or how it has

00:04:01--> 00:04:15

motivated you to be productive? These are your tasks for today. Very simple. Let me know how you get on with family. And inshallah I will be with you guys tomorrow for day five of the detox challenge. Have a wonderful day with Santa Monica.

00:04:29--> 00:04:59
