100 a lot of Vladimir no Salallahu Salam Baraka Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa salatu salam O God, mighty burden sisters, Quran Weekly Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh This is my second message for the young activist. Why is it so important to also work on yourself as much as you need to work on other people. In the previous presentation, we spoke about the importance of being a DI and being out there and delivering the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala. in whichever capacity you can afford, was an MSA in a conference, youth program at the masjid anywhere that you can afford. Now why is it so important right now for you? Whenever you're done, that you go and you focus on

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

yourself, you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in a very short surah that perhaps you've memorized it when you were young, and we know it because we've heard it a lot. And the the citations are lots of panel data sets. Prophet sallallahu wasallam, sort of the Shara Farida ferrata from sub we're in Arabic Africa, Allah subhanho wa Taala instructing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying so when you are free, strive in devotion. And what does that exactly mean? You don't want the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to go out in Mecca and he would deliver the message of Allah vision to the world. He would spend most of his time working so hard trying to pursue it and convince the people

00:01:41--> 00:02:22

to come to realize that he endured so much hardships that a lot of life was allamani to do that. However, when he's done from that work during the day, he would come back home to his family to his wife, Heidi God, Allah hota Anna, what do you exactly expect the message from Allah azza wa jal to a man who just spent hours and hours and given Dhawan coming back home right now, we usually expect after we're done from doing Adela program at, let's say, Islam awareness and on campus, or even a youth program at the masjid or participating in a conference. When we're done. At the end of the day, we we expect you to go and relax you say okay, now it's time for you to take a break and you're

00:02:22--> 00:02:59

supposed to relax right now. Allah has revealed to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam know, when you're free, now that you're free, then go ahead, strive in devotion. So after you're done, focusing on people, it's time right now that you focus on yourself. And this is my message for you. You have to give yourself also that that focus and you have to give yourself that attention that it deserves from you. You see, when Allah subhana wa Allah sent the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to the world in Mecca the first message he got right after Oprah read in the name of your Lord. It was Yeah, you have Muslim men. And yeah, you

00:03:00--> 00:03:32

Yeah, you hold Muslim men. Oh, you were the one who was wrapped in and shrouding yourself with your blanket meaning you prepare yourself to get some rest and sleep a lot old hymns pan on what are you home resemble como la la, la la kalila that you need to stand up, you need to wake up and stand up long standing in devotion for the sake of Allah azza wa jal humann Laila illa kalila stand up Imperium will lay, except for little most most of the night except for Little Miss for who own cosmin haka Leela, la hora

00:03:33--> 00:04:15

de la, meaning most of the night, half of the night, more or less. And then when you recite, recite in 13, beautiful slow to citation. So that means it's not about finishing the surah. As much as focusing on what exactly you're reciting. This is my message for you again, as much as you need to focus on people, as much as you required to volunteer, making sure that the setup is perfect. The microphone works very well, the diners are, are in place, the tables are ready. And the volunteers are in place. As much as you require to focus in all these activities, you still need to focus on one very important element for the success of this program. That is yourself. My message to you

00:04:15--> 00:04:55

again, is that as much as you put attention to making the program very effective, and very, very successful. Don't lose yourself. You know, they used to say, It's said that it's actually a Chinese proverb, they say that don't be like the candle that burns itself to light for everybody else around it. Just be like the sun, it comes up one time of the day and then sets at the end of the day. That's exactly how it should be. You don't lie to yourself and burn yourself completely to light for everybody else around you. Instead, you need to be like the sun. That means you shed some light on the on the people for part of the day. And then you're going to take your rest in shallow terracotta

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

and the way you take your risk is you move yourself up to the next level. You

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

Moving yourself up to the next level and there is nothing like focusing on yourself and doing pmla then I prayer that is the best Salah that you perform after the fourth prayer. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala make all your efforts successful and fruitful in this dunya and akhira was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
