respect to listeners salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
We all have
an idea of success.
We all wish to be successful.
We want to be successful ourselves, we want our children
and loved ones to succeed to
we want success for ourselves, we want success for them.
And virtually all of our efforts
beyond our immediate needs of immediate food, drink and clothing
are all driven
to attaining that success.
We have different ideas of success.
But who does Allah
and His little salsa love it he was suddenly
designate as being a successful person,
how to Allah and His Messenger some of the love it or send them define success is that the same success that we think
are the ones that we deem successful, regarded by Allah and His Messenger sallallahu wasallam as being successful
Well, the reality is now
the idea of success in the end
is very different to what's commonly perceived and believed.
In fact, even more than the heavy even before the heading
or arm actually says a lot about us and our own uses two terms or two routes words.
One is filler
and one is focus.
So, throughout the program, there are many verses which speak of further success attain.
And also afos which again means success and attainment. These two words are synonymous they have some subtle differences, but mainly they are synonymous. So for now, means photos photos means for that for that means success and photos means success and attainment of what a person wishes and seeks and desires.
We hear the word for that all the time.
Five times a day in sada in a calm.
We repeatedly hear the word follow when the more than
or the theme says hey Alan fuller Hey Alison, ah, Hey, man, hey Adam further and further and higher and further means rush to
So one of the more than is calling us to solder is telling us rush to success when the team is giving the garment just before the salon
saying the words he had a solder. Again Hey Alan fella, he's telling us rush to success. That is success. Prayer. Allah scramble Donna. So throughout the Quran Allah speaks of success using both terms or words related to both terms, and photos, and insha Allah relates a few verses about this. But the author actually says a lot, who are the successful ones time and time again, a lot actually says he describes certain people and then says these are the successful ones will go home and
hopefully, these are the successful ones for ism. These are the successful ones faza fosun, Lima, he has scored a great success, he has attained the great success. So time and time again. Allah speaks of success. And invariably, the success that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned is never to do with the dunya. It's always to do with good deeds, with faith, with the Aqua, with purity, with chastity, with the remembrance of Allah with the obedience of Allah with faith, and most importantly, with the
last panel who
repeatedly mentions that the true success is the success of the alpha of the hereafter. And this is the message to be found throughout the course. In fact, we begin with this message. The very first word about success in the book comes within the first few verses of Surah Baqarah. Well last panel with Allah says le flam mean that article tavolara fee for the limit. And Lavine una bella hi boo ki Muna Serato me merasakan boom, will Edina you sit in a coma. Public will be a hero to whom you know, hula hula mirabai Mola como
la says le Flan mean this book, there is no doubt there.
It is a guidance for the people of
vote those and then a law defines the people of
those who believe in the unseen
and we established the law and who gives it
and they do believe with conviction in the hereafter.
Further Allah says,
they believe in
that which has been revealed to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that was that in that which was revealed before the prophets of the love it
and they do believe with conviction in the hereafter. Now
these are people who are on guidance from their Lord, what will go home and will flee home and these are the ones who are successful.
As far as success is concerned, a law does not consider an order the profits of the law might ecosystem consider wealth, fame, power, influence, popularity,
worldly recognition, worldly achievements, worldly qualifications, as being success, none of these things are considered success.
None whatsoever, not even money, fame, prestige, recognition, academic qualifications, achievements, wealth, influence, power popularity, the normal markers of success, as far as the dounia is concerned the world is concerned, not one of them is regarded as a mark of success by line is
completely different. In the very beginning of the program, these are the markers of success, and they are
a Levine you want to believe believe in the unseen
sada wielkie masala
they give some
of that which we have bestowed upon them they do spend meaning optional additional charity in southern
believe in the articles of faith in the revelation that was given to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam ie the Quran.
So this is different to what
Before before the last panel data speaks of believing in the unseen, which covers everything. And then specifically believing in the Koran, the revelation, believing in the scriptures of before.
Again, Allah speaks of conviction about life after death and the second life.
These are the markers of success in man that were sada zakka.
And then at last season, what will go home and will flee home and these are the successful
and this is repeated a number of verses. Email is the first mark of success.
A lot does not recognize any of the success of
the second one is
after EMA, obedience of a law, an obedience of the noble messengers of the law it was,
even here axios we covered this in the commentary of the heavy for heraclius. If you recall,
you're actually his was the Byzantine Roman Empire.
The most powerful ruler and Emperor at the time, who had just recently
a disabling defeat.
Only society Persian Empire. He was at the zenith of his power at that time. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wrote him a letter.
And when he received the letter heraclius, being the Roman Emperor,
the spiritual leader, the leader of the church, the leader of the faith, the leader of the Empire, the leader of both the spiritual and the temporal realm, with his vast battle hardened arms,
with all the riches, and the culture, the wealth and the political power and civilization of Byzantine Rome, when he received the letter of the law and the law, it was suddenly inviting him to believe. He was convinced of the truth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam them, and he gathered his people.
And what did he say to them? As Imam Mohammad Abdullah he relates in his
his first words to the gathered nobles and dignitaries of Byzantine wrong. Well,
yeah, maxar halochem. Phil fella.
What are your thoughts on that Mukoko for Tibet?
He said, Oh, assembly of rodents. Remember, he was speaking to the elites of the whole of the Roman Empire. He wanted to invite so that they could embrace along with and with the Emperor embracing Islam and the elites embracing Islam, the whole Roman Empire would have fallen.
And that's why he addressed the elite first.
So he said, Yeah, Marcia, who are assembly of Romans halochem, fulfill his very first words, where do you have any interest in follow?
The same words that we hear in the success and let them fulfill us? Do you have any interest in success? What a rush and in guidance, and in that your empire last?
If so, facto value higher than they be? Then in order to achieve that success, you should pledge your allegiance to this province.
You recognize that the province of the law it was true, unfortunately, since the elites rebelled, and they refuse to believe
and embrace Islam and accept the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, sadly and tragically, he miraculous iraklis was overcome, overcome by the love of power and wealth, and the dunya. So despite being convinced
of the truth, from a sort of pseudo Lhasa, lahardee
he fell into the trap of being alone by the power and wealth of his worldly ram realm. And as a result, he decided not to believe and he stuck with his empire and with his people. Eventually, he passed on as a non Muslim. So he refused to believe in the profits in the law, it was in them, but telling me, these are the words he used. The halycon financial were washed, but do you have any
Dressed in filler in success
later in the last panel with Anna again speaking of EMA faith that's the first one then obedience there can be no success without the obedience of law is noble messages in the law Holly was
last season sort of our off
what he was he had conditioning for set up double highly linear.
We were living in the middle Allah Dini una vasudha Nabeel me and Lydia, Donna, Houma Cuban and
yet more of them Bill Maher who
will play Eva La Habra is where you're
at Canada lay him for Latina movie he was. So what about removing the wounds in America?
Allah says, what he was he had good machine. And my mercy encompasses everything.
So I will register my mess. For those
who are very who have Taqwa.
And who gives occur
and who believe in our side,
those who follow
the unlettered Prophet and Messenger,
whom they find recorded in the Torah and in the MG
who enjoins them to good and forbids them from evil.
Who makes lawful for them the pure things and makes them lawful for them the impure thing
we learn is sort of and who lifts off them that
and the shackles that bound
for levena Armand, so those who have believed in Him what
and who have supported him when I saw it all, and whoever assisted him with the barrel noodle are the ones in America, and who have followed that move or that light that was revealed with him will go home and these are the ones who are successful.
Again, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions all of these qualities. So who are the people of success? Who are the successful ones, not the rich, the powerful, the wealthy, the famous, the glamorous, the influential.
None of these.
The successful ones are those
who have Taqwa, who gives aka who believe in Allah signs, who follow the Noble Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam obedience and following.
Those who have believed in him, those who support them, those who assist and those who follow that light that knew which allow reveal when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, anyone who possesses these characteristics and qualities, is the one who Allah regards to being successful.
Obedience of Allah, faith in Allah.
Obedience of Allah, faith in Allah, obedience of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and believe it again in another verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala season sort of the more in America and I'm older I mean it either don't rule it Allahu
jacobina and your auto Submit. Now we'll learn what we'll learn.
When we need to learn what a sudo we're shala we're talking for the echo ism last panel with the addressees.
Whenever the believers are called
in the Magana code and what meaning they don't want you to log in what a suit
whenever the believers are called to Allah and His Messenger some love it.
So that alarm a judge between them or the messengers of the law, it will send a message between
their only response their only reply should be
submitted now what we have heard and we have obeyed
in America and Poland, let me repeat in America my golden rule in a lie what I saw the heliacal Unbeknown
whenever the believers are called to Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so that he may judge between them.
The only reply should be submitted. Now what we have heard about
We have obey. Well now go home.
And these are the successful, loving continues, and whoever obey whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger Salalah Heidi,
we have shala, Hawaii, and whoever fears law and he's wary of him.
his own, then these are the far his own. These are the successful ones. As I said earlier on, Allah uses the terms further related to finance and photos. So in the previous verse will not go home. In this verse like a homerun for his own for his own reflection, more or less mean the same thing, the successful ones. In fact, the word for law, it doesn't just simply mean success.
It means everlasting success. Success which endures success, which remains success which lasts the very word for that incorporates the meaning of endurance and timelessness
success risk which actually lasts that is the meaning of filler.
And fat isn't those who have attained the success, those have achieved and attained what they set out to achieve.
So the only people of success that our last panel recognizes in these verses are those who obey Allah and His Messenger someone lahardee who say some evil now what a foreigner we have heard and we have obey and follow and obey Allah His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have shum, La Jolla Ducky who fear Allah. We are lucky and who are wary of very of law meaning who have Taqwa in relation to a loss of more data, which means guarding oneself
from the disobedience of a law, that's,
again, sort of a last panel with the ad essays. Yeah, you have the the sorting sort of answer. Yeah, you have the Nina Armand De La Hoya. Ooh, Colin said either
way, a Filipina, remember, come on when you're in LA Sula, who forgot faza was on our vema. Allah says Olga v.
Be wary of Allah. And say straight word and upright word.
Allah will make good and pious your deeds, and forgive you your sins.
And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fuckathon fires of Lima, then indeed he has attained a great success, a tremendous success. Again, lost crown or with other marks success, success as being as belonging to that person who has duck wha hoo, who speaks ransley
Who has good deeds, and most importantly, who obeys Allah obeys His Messenger, Allah it was belief in Allah following the messenger of Allah obeying the Messenger of Allah. These are the primary markers of success without these primary markers that can be no other success, email.
obedience. And this is exactly what this How about all the alarm?
That was the supreme example of belief and obedience, to the extent that if it meant that they differed even from their loved ones,
then so be it. And that's my last speaking this is this first of Singleton well, Java is actually a description of the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Along with these words, is describing them.
Allah says, digital only you can only be like when
you are doing a Manhattan de la hora. Welcome
Sheila de la casa de PUE Emily man,
min Jonathan 30 min tactical and hello Holly Holiday Inn fee her Don't be a loved one with his villa. In his villa homophone. Allah says you will not find the people who believe in London the final day,
befriending and living those who have challenged Allah His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even though these challenges may be
their fathers their son
their brothers, their families, why Allah, Allah will be able to eat. These are people in whose hearts Allah has engraved
with a spirit from himself, a lovely enter them into gardens beneath which river shall flow.
They're in they shall reside forever
about the law and one of the one, Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with the law with his will law. This is the party of Allah, Allah in His biLlahi homonuclear all know that it is the party of Allah, which is successful. Again, Allah is specifically describing the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as they believed them. And as they supported the messenger, some love it.
That is a party of success. They were the successful ones, and they were the supreme example of success alive. So how about the law and
that email was of such a level that they did not.
And they followed the messenger Salalah Heidi, who send them
in the most beautiful way, to the extent that Allah praises them in the Holy Quran.
Again, in another verse of sort of boba, speaking of the same so how vital the alarm was Serbian woman, a woman and Argentina Well, I'm sorry, well Edina, certainly allowed the alarm model to warm Well, I cannot and the data are hard enough.
The article falls on our lien, Allah essays and those
of the immigrants and of the helpers
and of those who followed them in a good way.
Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with
the launch prepared for them gardens beneath which reverse shell flow, their initial reside for
the radical foes allow the a lot of gainsays. This is the great success, the foes, this is the great attainment. This is the great chief last crown award the other marks and recognize the noble companions of us all lots of love Harley or some of them as being the successful ones the people of success, the party of success.
And they set their exactly set the example of belief of obedience of the messenger, some of them are highly awesome. There are countless stories of how this how vital the alarm, believed in Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was such conviction, unshakable conviction, with such resolute faith and with such devoted obedience and alarm made them an example for those who came after them to follow.
So success is an email in belief in the obedience of Allah His Messenger sallallahu wasallam and in following in the footsteps of the Sahaba of the Allah the noble companions furthermore
success is only in doing good last panel with their other essays again in reverse or sort of hedge yeah you had under the girl was strudel.
Oh believers, Ban
and worship your Lord
and do good in the hope that you may succeed. Again, you want to follow? You want success, true success. Then, bow prostrate, worship your Lord, and what will he do good.
This will achieve success for you. This will bring success into your life
partially in this world, but mainly in the US in the hereafter.
And it's not just about believing oneself. Last crownhill with Allah tells us
a lot order to be successful. You shouldn't just believe in yourself
and do good yourself. You should try and spread this man's faith and this goodness and this beautiful message. And you should do good yourself and encourage others to do good. You should abstain from evil yourself and encourage others from abstain from evil. You should dissuade and discourage others from
Enjoying the good forbidding the evil, inviting others, encouraging others motivating others, preaching to others teaching others, this is also part of that good, which Allah subhanho wa Taala says must be done in order to achieve success and fat loss is explicitly that it in reverse that those losses well documented material ruin it Well, hey, we were all a bit mad wolf we and whole gnarly monka What would our own losses Let there be from amongst you a group who invite to good, we're enjoying the good, who forbid the evil. And these are the successful ones. You want to be successful, become a diary, invite others, you want to be successful, enjoying the good forbid the
which is very difficult to do.
We wish to remain personal and private. We wish never to
disturb or disrupt.
We love not to create any ripples or tremors.
We wish never to draw attention to ourselves.
That this was always the duty of the prophets, it was to that was all of the prophets of Allah, invited, enjoying the good, forbade evil, encouraged,
discouraged, were discouraged once was required. All of the prophets have allotted this. And the last panel with the ANA says, we think we will be successful. If we avoid all of this last panel who would add essays do this and you'll be successful. We'll take a minute.
And let there be a group of you that invites the good we will all live in America often enjoys the good way in home and in Hong Kong, and who forbid the evil, what will not equal whom or for whom Allah says and these are the successful.
So do good, not just yourselves, believe but not just yourselves, obey Allah, but not just yourselves, encourage others and motivate others and invite others to do the same.
Very nice success.
of course, in doing good there are so many things Allah has already mentioned in these verses sada
and enjoying the good and forbidding the evil. But let me say a few words about zeca. And more importantly, over and above obligatory is about sub about optional, voluntary chariot.
Let me elaborate on this because this is very important in relation to success, because it really hits the point. And it drives home the point about success. We think success is in pursuing wealth in acquiring wealth in becoming rich. We think money will buy everything. We think money will buy. Power, love, influence, recognition,
peace, joy, happiness, tranquility, serenity.
Money cannot necessarily buy these things.
We use money as a currency. And we use other things as a currency in order to achieve and attain other things. This is how we regard success.
And especially when it comes to money, we think success isn't wealth, we normally say he's successful. Simply to refer to someone who's become rich has become wealthy. Someone does when in business is successful. So when becomes rich, he's successful. we equate success with wealth and wealth for success. We think success lies in gaining wealth. The last panel with data says success lies in giving away well.
We think success is acquiring wealth. last panel who with Allah says success is in distributing wealth.
We believe that success is in
gathering and collecting and hoarding wealth. The last panel with the Atlas a success isn't giving away wealth get rid of
and that's why it lost crown hall with the ANA C's universe of sorta to whom for the autobahn, who will scan a witness to be
the Cairo Linda de la bola.
so give the relative
and the poor and the trap.
Remember this is over and above Zika Zika is obligatory, but last panel with Allah has told us that Zika has the bare minimum that you should give the bare minimum
and over and above soccer you should give as much wealth as possible to whom all kinds of categories and here in this verse and even in other verses like in salt and Baccarat well last panel with Allah speaks of virtue and righteousness, Allah says, Well, I can make a bit of an arm and a belay when you're actually one of my direct work dad we wouldn't have been, but after he man righteousness, virtue and piety belong to Him.
One who believes and then
the one who gives to the relatives.
So that again, Allah says First, the one who spends on the relatives here as well for either the autobahn, so give the relative is G and this is very important because relatives are normally the first people we try to keep our wealth. In fact, even before the relatives, the spouse is the first victim of our hiding and hoarding wealth.
The husband conceals his wealth from the wife, the wife conceals her wealth from the husband.
And then siblings,
nephews nieces. In fact, sadly, children can see all their wealth from their parents.
And sometimes parents can see all their wealth from their children.
So if this is the case with brothers, sisters, with spouses, husbands and wives, then what of the distant relatives, but alas, crown or with Allah says it is dupois it is virtue, it's as piety. And it is a mark of success that you spend First of all, over and above the obligatory Sokka before anyone else you spend on your relatives.
Now we love to give charity, and
it's commendable. And it's something which should be recognized Muslims, proportionately across the globe, are the most charitable
section of offside. Even in this country, proportionately Muslims give a greater proportion of their wealth than any other section of the community.
But still, we still don't do as much as Allah has told us. Imagine what we could achieve, if we spent as alive encourages us to spend. Now we love giving charity where often to people in faraway places that we have never heard of that we will never mean
it's good for the last panel with the honor even before speaking of these rights for people, a lot again and again in the specifies that give first to your relatives.
so weak, we keep wealth from our relatives. So Allah says further they'll put about, so give the relative is G is right. Then Allah says one miskeen and then the poor. Urbanus, Sabine and the traveler. Allah then says, This is better for those who seek the countenance of Allah or will go home, and these are the successful
again, Allah marks success in charity in giving in charity. In another verse of sudo to the hub last panel hoarder Allah says so
in the modern world what allowed fit
well law we're in the digital now lien law Mr. battle was smiling, what a theory what unfilmable Hayden, listen for second when when you shop NFC for law.
Law says your wealth.
In fact, the word is plural and world meaning your riches and your children are a fit are only of how are they fit?
Because they, the word fitna, originally in Arabic simply means to distract anything which distracts you from something far more important
is a distraction is a fit and then
distractions fitna can be of many forms varying in their intensity. So a lost crown who would Allah has called many things a fitna
and in fact Allah has called The other benefit.
So the most severe is actually the other than the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala, which has laws or laws termed fitna with double fitment allowed Steven the Libyan Avila woman cancer and fear a fitna
which will not only afflict the guilty amongst you, and the word fitna, in that verse refers to either meaning the punishment, so fitna means a distraction. So a lot of called children, if they distract you from Allah subhanho wa Taala calls riches and wealth, a fitna and indeed, they are a wealth as
it distracts a person from our last panel. That's why Allah sees and sort of them one after being.
were looking What are
we here for the liquor folder?
Oh, believers, do not let your riches and your children distracts you from the remembrance of the law. And whether it is guilty of this. These are the ones who are losers. This is the first verse where the word loser has come in in our discussion.
So think of it, who do we regard as being successful? And who do we regard as being a loser to as a successful person is the rich person, and a loser is one who's destitute and panelists who hasn't got anything to their name. And the roles are completely reversed with the last panel who would their honor, those whom we consider losers are the successful ones.
And the ones that we consider successful are the losers in the site.
And he says it clearly when I go home. These are the losers, those who are distracted by their wealth by their riches. So Allah says in sort of the hub and in the mountain, we're looking we're allowed to fitness, your riches, and your children are a fitna meaning they are a distraction. And law with him is the greater reward. Therefore, be wary of as much as you can, or smearing and hear and listen to what I do, and obey.
And do good for yourselves and spend what unfuckable hate on them for sickle and spend. This is good for you.
And then Allah says, when we use the shotgun,
good for yourselves, and whoever is protected from the greed of his soul.
Then these are the ones who are successful footballers go home. Again, that word. And this is very telling. A person cannot be successful without getting rid of greed in one's home.
Greed is a destructive disease.
It truly is.
Under 100, now for the alarm was performing tawaf around the garbus, one at one of the 30 days that I was once performing the life around the gap. And I heard someone constantly repeating wandora llama finish NFC alarm Upanishad of C over law protects me from the greed of my soul, will love protect me from the greed of myself. So when I went closer, the person constantly repeating this there are in this blessed place was none other than the Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And
so I said to him, all I'm doing now if I hear you repeat only one door are constantly along the finish. And I've seen all law protects me from the greed of my soul. So I'm dramatic now for the alarm said yes, indeed.
He said, The reason is,
that if a law protects me from the greed of my soul, then I will not commit this sin and that sin and this sin and that sin, and he listed a number of sin.
And this the message is that greed
leads us to committing so many sins. In fact, in a hadith Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that openly, Yakutia then beware of green. And then in from a number of Hadith we learn that greed destroyed the nations of before greed.
leads to bloodshed.
misappropriation of wealth, greed leads to theft. Greed leads to deceit, lying, cheating. Greed, leads to deception,
depriving other people of wealth to unlawfully taking other people's well,
greed leads to all of these things, and much more.
In fact, in the Hadith prophets, Allah, Allah and he was someone categorically mentioned, that greed ultimately led them to murder and to shedding blood.
greed is one of those diseases, which has the impetus, the root cause of many ills and many sins and many crimes.
And that's why the last panel with Anna says whoever is protected from the greed of his soul.
These are the ones who are successful. That's the that's a route. That's the beginning.
Before a person becomes charitable,
and spends willingly and happily in the way of a law.
A person has to get rid of the greed and now
getting rid of that greed, a person cannot attain true success. Greed is despicable. It's very low, it causes a person to behave in the most in the strangest of ways. In fact, greed causes a person to behave like animals, even though animals don't have greed.
is not greed,
eats as much as it needs, once it's consumed, once it requires
the animal displays no further greed.
It takes Yes, it doesn't have that higher intelligence. So it takes what it wants, as and when it requires as as and when it wants it. But without greed, only out of necessity.
The heme they are unique in the sense that they have this greed in them, to the extent that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, as a member Hardy and others relate from Abdullah was Aveda and other Sahaba de Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Lauren Nibbana to where the men the men that had bitterly fernea when the Athenian that had been litho etha
when I assumed the job of Neo Adam in the Torah were you to blah, blah, nice man was given a valley filled with gold,
you would still desire a second, he was given the second he also he would still desire third, and nothing will fill the cavity in the void and the hole in man except the soil of the earth, and a lot of turns and relenting to whomever he wishes. This had he
I've repeated it so many times. And I've said and I still say that this is a hadith which you should memorize.
Because it reveals so much.
And we hear it so often that we don't think about it. But just think of the words.
So many Sahaba robiola, who heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam relate this
because it speaks of our greed. Our greed knows no bounds.
And that's what we think success.
We think fulfilling our greedy ambitions is a sign of success. Our greed knows no bounds. And when we think Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam simply said, If a man was given a value full of gold,
I've mentioned before that
to our understanding, and to our knowledge, the entire the total collective gold, the total amount of gold ever excavated, mined,
and collected in the history of the world. Put together
does not come to more than a few swimming pools are a few football fields.
The volume, the volume of I think, two or four swimming pools, and the same all the space and the area of
again, two or four football fields.
So the entire goal that has ever been excavated, mined and collected in history
in the whole history of mankind.
Will not fill more than four swimming pools
for football fields.
And if you were to put a value to that, we're talking about trillion trillions of pounds worth of gold, the total amount of gold that has been excavated, mined and collected in the history of mankind. And that's not more than two or four swimming pools or two or four football fields. In contrast to that, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says, If man was given a valley full of gold, how many football fields how many swimming pools could fill a one Valley
we're talking about hundreds of trillions of pounds, maybe any measurable innumerable amount of gold. If, if one person forget the whole of mankind, if one person was given a whole value of gold, or saw loss in the law, it will set them aside eponymous to the truth or one whose truthfulness has been attested to by law says If man was given a whole value of gold, is greed is such that he will still want a second
he still won't be happy.
And if he's given a second Valley, his greed is such that he will still want a third Valley and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam stopped. Why? Because he said, this cavity, this void in men, which he seeks to fill with gold,
and wealth and riches, he says nothing can fill that void, except the soil.
Only the dust of the earth.
we should truly memorizes how the couple saw the last in the library or send them another one three Hadeeth about wealth how these lives have been in fact related by many so how about the Allah related Imam Bukhari the famous had either Abdullah mushahid or the olara relates by Muslim in his he about some have gone with the golfer. And the diva warrior huddled the alarm similar to the Hades ram to lighten the shift he again so he Muslim relates to and
I've mentioned both of them in the scene and commentary of sort of MacArthur on repeat them. In fact, this is what we do. We spend our entire lives at home with the car for one upmanship. And competing with one another has distracted you and will continue to distract you to you go to your graves in our pursuit of success and our idea of successes, degrees qualifications, wealth.
Now I'm not frowning on any of these things.
All of them are important. Food is important. Drink is important. clothing and shelter are important. Education is important, both worldly, religious and secular.
degrees are important. A job is vital. careers are important. None of these things I do not detract from any but they are all necessities. They are not necessarily the markers of success in themselves. And we've reduced the markers of success to the simple things.
How shallow is our think?
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the head he
told us a How about the law and
which one of you
wouldn't want to go to a tee, the value of Rp
autoboca. in Medina, these were two places the value of a beak and
where camels used to graze.
So which one of you wouldn't want to go to the value of a peak automaton and
without committing any crime, any theft, any wrongdoing without hurting or offending anyone without breaking any ties.
Which one of you wouldn't want to go there and freely pick up two camels? Which one the best colored camels
and the most splendid
who may think camels remember the camel was everything to the era.
Everything the ship of the desert, the companion
a mode of transport mode of travel a mode of luggage, a marker of wealth, a commitment everything. And camels. The best camels on the province alone is from here speaking with the best camels
Just like cars, you can buy a banker
for a few pounds. And you can buy supercars or what the most luxurious cars branded cars for hundreds of 1000s if not millions. Same thing with camels. In fact, a few years ago here in Arabia in Raven the Middle East, one camel one single racing camel was sold for a good few million pounds in early one capital.
So, just like cars, the prices vary in the province of the love it was more speaking of the best camels, the best colored and the most splendid camels. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Which one of you wouldn't want to go to a beep automaton and freely without committing any crime any wrongdoing hurting or offending anyone freely pick up two of the most colorful and splendid camels.
Go my Wayne's a harrowing, he says. So this habit of the alarm said, Who of us wouldn't try to sort on that. Now, for us, we have to translate that we can't understand camels. So for the young youngsters,
it's like, or for those amongst us like saying, which one of you wouldn't mind who wouldn't want to go out somewhere to a parking lot and for free without committing any crime without offending or hurting anyone freely pick up
a Lamborghini or a Ferrari or a proxy for the Angolans or a Bentley in a Rolls Royce for the older ones who have you wouldn't want to do that freely for free just go and pick it up to
the most brightly colored and the most splendid. So let's How about on the lower end who said who I was wouldn't try to solo. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that one of you should come to the masjid and learn two verses of the Quran. This is far better for him than the two most colorful and splendid counts for free to this. And then he says, and three verses are better than three.
And then he says, and so on. So for the 1000s of verses of the Holy Quran,
what wealth is there in it, but this is the level of our ambition. Our ambition is in cars, is in homes, is in jewelry isn't gold. And
in so many other things, these are the markers of success as far as we are.
And the last panel with that is telling us how shallow is your thinking. In the head ether. I'm delighted when we screwed that up, viola, Han and others, he says there is no envy except in two people, meaning you should never be envious except of two people.
We envy others. And again, how lonely is our ambition? how cheap is our envy, we harm ourselves and we cause pain to ourselves. because someone's got a bigger garden than us.
Someone's got a better car than someone's got better wheels.
And I don't mean a car's wheels just simply wheels. Someone's got better wheels, someone's got better shoes than us, and we burn green with them.
how lonely is our ambition? how cheap is our envy province to love it when somebody says there should be no envy at all, except in relation to two people. And I'm only going to mention the first one. If you really want to be envious of someone profits in the lives of themselves. Envy should be for that man whom Allah has given them.
And he recites it night and day. So his neighbor hears him and his neighbor says, Oh how I wish that I was given the order and just as he's been given the arm, so that I could read it.
And then the second person is one who Allah has given wealth, but then last pan of water Allah has also given him that though fee and the and the noble ability and the divine help to spend that wealth in the way of Allah. So someone sees him and says, oh, how am I wish that love would give me wealth as he gave him not to hoard so that I could also spend it just as he has spent. These are the only two people wants to be envious of how lowly is our ambition and how cheap is our we think these are markers of success. Cars, shoes, clothes, bags,
homes, properties, real estate.
bank balances fashion. Last Carnival with Allah does not consider any of this. Allah says
Most importantly we're speaking of charity. Allah says, success is not in acquiring wealth, success is in dispensing of wealth. Success is not in hoarding wealth. Success is in distribute. So for other than alcohol will Myskina witness Sabine lovers which have recited the other verse, whoever is protected from the greed of a soul, just like the Sahaba of the Allahu Allah.
Sort of Russia praises the Mahajan on the inside and then on the inside he mentioned something What does he say?
When Medina de Beauvoir will accompany him, you should warn him and harshly lay him. What are you doing a few saluting him at the mid mount? Who do we sit on Allah and forcing him we're all gonna be coming kasasa Are you sure that you follow
those who occupied the city of Medina before the Mahajan one came, and those who adopted Eamon before they came? So alight speaking of leap help is the unsub WhatsApp position you should warn them and hardly they can they love those who have emigrated to them, ie
in the fact they were refugees.
They love the refugees who have come
What are you doing a few sudo Rahim has written me ma a hacer them. And they do not harbor any envy in their hearts for what they have been given, meaning the install do not harbor any envy in their hearts for what the Mahajan would have been given. And it's very telling, because the Mahajan room they were they left Makkah they came to Medina, many of them pendulous. So that I'm sorry. So how about the Allah one? They said to them, we will give you our wealth. Can you imagine how clean their hearts were? Today? We fight and we go to a judge? Why? So that the judge,
the claimant says
this wealth is mine. And the defendant says no, this wealth is mine. So the judge has to decide and say is no you can't have it.
He has to keep it or you can't have it belongs to him. You have to give it to him. So Pamela, we go to judges so that we keep our wealth, and we steal wealth from each.
But this habit of the love
the bent of the Prophet, some of the love It was amazing. And they said to him Yasuda love that answer. They said our brothers from the Mahajan speak to them Really? Why? Because we want to give them half of our wealth but they're not accepting.
So the more hard You don't say no, we are a pseudo law. We don't want that.
The Sahaba that unsolved we're giving their wealth and the more headroom we're refusing. So the insolvent to complain to the prophets of Allah.
So Dr. sola Will you speak to them, they're refusing to take our
eventually they came to an agreement, various agreements, like the wardroom work in the fields of the inside without taking their wealth, and their chair, the crops and the produce.
that's how clean hearted the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu were. And despite the fact that the Mahajan came penniless, the Ansel so how about all the alarms spent on them spent spent spent? They gave them homes, they gave them wealth. They gave the help them with their businesses. They did everything for them. They sheltered them, they protected them. They did everything for
and yet, in almost everything, the more headroom were given privilege and preference. The Mahajan were the ones who stood with with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Sala in any gathering the Mahajan room sat at the front. whenever anything happened the prophet SAW the learner It was called the Mahajan fest. Allah mentions and Mahajan before anyone else in the entire para la mentions and Mahajan first and then the answer. So in everything that unserer saw that we have spent on them, we have sheltered them. We have accommodated them. We have helped them. We have received them we have embraced them. We've done everything for them, but we are always second
in the courtroom, we are second with the Messenger of Allah we are second. In privileges we are second in choices. We are second, and the Mahajan are always first despite that a lot testifies that their hearts was so clean. What are you doing a feasibility memo that the answers are borne out? no ill will. They harbored no resentment, no envy whatsoever at the preference and the privilege that the Mahajan
In fact, they went further Allah says we should all know Allah and for saving what organic salsa, even if they are suffering from need themselves, they give privileged to us.
And then Allah says amin, you're a
and whoever is protected from the greed of his soul, and these are the successful
spending in the way of a law, getting rid of one's greed is one of the primary requirements and one of the prerequisites for obtaining success in
charities, successes and giving, not in hoard.
Furthermore, a lot of a lot of spoke about charity in relation to doing good that we must do good, all good, but charity are elaborated on and then apart from doing good in order to be successful, there is one more thing we have to avoid the disobedience.
last panel with the ANA
reminds us again and again. That true success lies in
Throughout the Quran, Allah says in the whole life of Valley moon, indeed the sinful are not successful in all areas of the moon, indeed, the criminal are not successful.
Prophet Yusuf Alayhi Salam
was invited to sin.
My other law
I seek refuge in Allah.
Indeed, Allah has honored my station.
I will not sin in
the morning D the sinful are not successful. sinful are never successful. Yeah, you're Latina Armando and sort of made that last easier you have the Drina animal in the middle humbrol enemies that are well unsolved well as an added some anomalous shape on first of all, and unbelievers, indeed, alcohol.
Why, and camping
and the altars of sacrifice, and the arrows of divination. All of these are impurities from the works of shaper, which then he wore. So abstain from looking to flare on in the hope that you may succeed, one can never attain true success without avoiding the sins of Allah.
Without avoiding the prohibitions,
one cannot be successful, once being sinful.
Again, total reversal of roles, we think, to be successful, you have to be sinful, the sinful are the successful ones. And the pious, those who do not commit sins, they are boring,
So we think
the successful ones are the sinful ones. The sinful ones are the successful ones. Allah tells us you can never be successful whilst beings
the sinful are never successful. Allah says the prophets of Allah said that the sinful can never be successful.
No matter how
copious, how numerous, how prevalent, how widespread,
That sin may be,
again, in that last panel with Allah says, Allah swa sabetha Liebe. Jabba casado hubbies La Jolla unbabel
say, the pure and the impure will never be equal. Even though the amount and the excess of impurity astounds you and shocked,
even pleases you. Sort of losses for law here
are ones of intelligence. Be wary of lala land looking to Pharaoh in the hope that you may be successful. Again, this leads us to something else, there can be no success without the
book while the last round. And what's that word? That word doesn't just mean the fear of Allah. Duck worm means guarding oneself from the disobedience of
how by guarding, but guarding oneself from the obedience of Allah by guarding one's limbs, one's eyes, one's ears, one senses everything guarding, protecting oneself from the
disobedience of a law being wary and cautious of the last panel with the other. That's the meaning of sort of law says if you possess intelligence, be wary of a law have Taqwa in the hope that you may succeed, there can be no success without that the quality lost.
Again time again we heard that verse earlier from sort of more in Americana Olden meaning either the real ally who was Saudi and jacobina, who was Sameera. Now what Aparna what like
when you tell our pseudo way of Shama way a duck if Allah ism, last season, whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, wherever of shall law and who fears Allah We are lucky, and who is wary and cautious of Allah for all ecohome on his own and these are the ones who are successful, there can be no success, without there can be no true success without. Again many of the verses speak of the duck while the last round hole with the Anna and taqwa is a relationship with
and without building and establishing that relationship with Allah has illegible, there can be no
and that one means
guarding oneself from the disobedience of Allah, and that means internally and externally. So self purification, self reform,
nurturing oneself to do good. Without this gear, there can be no success.
true success is very difficult to achieve.
And sort of parallel what is the last crown a hoarder Anna says the fisherman has a weather got a smell of beef, with the hair, the dounia when I feel the heat and what I've got in the house, and all that sort of thing, but our email Moosa, Allah says indeed successful is he successful is He who
allows his soul to flourish,
and remembers the name of his Lord and praise
them, Allah tells us what we are doing wrong. Name, you give preference to the worldly life over the life of the Hereafter, even though the life of the Hereafter is far better and everlasting.
And this message
that the successful one is He Who purifies himself, who allows a soul to grow and flourish. This is not new to Islam, Allah says, this message in the habit of a scruffy ruler. This was in the earliest scriptures, sort of Ibrahim omorosa, in the scriptures of Ibrahim and lusardi hymns. All of the prophets of Allah deliver the same message in sort of the shrimps or shumsa, what the law swears by many things, and then what does he say, but a flemons of Gerhard harben. The Sahaba indeed successful is He who allows the soul to grow and to flourish, and work at Harbor and indeed has lost out He who has lost out when the Sahaba who stunts and prevents the growth and the flourishing of
That's true success, the growth and the flourishing of the soul.
The rule, that's true success and tree loss is not the growth and the flourishing of the body.
But the growth of the soul. And true loss is the loss of one's
that's true loss. And that's true success. So without this gear, there can be no true success. Finally, as I said, we have to create and establish that relationship with the last panel with Allah in order to attain true success, one has to turn to Allah, in repentance and in remembrance, in a very long verse of sort of the more a lot speaking of chastity and purity. A last panel with Anna then says, We're to Elahi Jimmy, and in order to fly home, and all of you, meaning men and women, all of you collectively turned to ally in repentance, oh believers in the hope that you may succeed.
In this sort of analysis for a moment, where I'm in a way I'm in Assange and faster, and you're gonna mean and morphine, that whoever, whoever repents to Allah and believes and does good deeds, then there is hope that this person will be of the successful
speech speaking of. In fact, there's a very telling verse or sort of
Allah mentions a whole list of qualities that are markers of success, but a Flan Menon and livina home feasts aloud to him harshing we're living in harmony
with the catify within hula foraging, half his room Illa Allah is watching from home America, a man
vedamo mean familiar
the marine weather the matter silhouetting Half Dome, la como una de niro
Carlito. Allah says indeed successful are those believers who are movies that alcohol Shireen, who are devoted and humble in their prayers. I won't translate all of the verses as quickly as summarized, successful are those who are devout and humbling their prayers.
Those who turn away from vanity and
and worthless things those who gives aka those are pure and chaste.
Those who are conscious of their trusts and their promises and mindful of their promises, a loved one says
these are the inheritors. These are the inheritors, who like a human body form. They are the inheritors. We always ask someone's passed away. What will the inheritors get? How much will they get? What have they left in that state? When extremely wealthy people pass away it's commonly in the media, who will get what share of the hundreds of millions and billions. So here last panel with Allah says, Allah ecohome, unwary foon these are the successors and these are the inheritors, inheritors, of what and Lithuania. For those, those who will inherit paradise, and fee how hard they're in, they shall reside, Allah begins his whole section with the word, but
indeed, successful arms. These are the markers of success, those who do all of this in the dunya and those who inherit fit of those meaning paradise engine in that. That is a true marker of success without turning into a lost crona. Who would rather none of this can be realized, turn to allow him repentance. And in remembering him anyone remembers the last panel with the arrow that says
remember him remember his gifts, gratitude of last crown award that is very important. And this ties in with greed. Because we are so greedy, we are never grateful. Agree the greedy or never grateful.
And the Grateful on our greed, not so that's a rule. If someone is greedy, they are never grave, and they cannot be grateful. This is why we must eradicate greed from our hands. And someone who is truly grateful is not great.
They are content.
And last panel with Allah tells us for good or Allah Allah Hill and looking to flee home. Remember the
bounties in the gifts of Allah the blessings of Allah, perhaps you may succeed.
We should always remember last gifts, always. Happiness, lies and gratitude. Those who are grateful are happy. Those who are ungrateful, are never happy. They're always miserable. No matter how much wealth Allah gives them.
No matter how many people are friendly with
our good to them.
It's an illness.
If 1000 people come to say, salon to you, and only
the knifes are such
that we won't be bothered about the 1000 who gave some answers. We are burning from inside about that one Abdullah never came.
Why didn't he come?
Why didn't he come?
We may have a million.
We burn over that one pound that we haven't got.
So the greedy, another grateful the Grateful on evergreen. And in one way of eradicating greed is to be grateful to Allah by remembering Allah as gifts for Allah allow him to fly home. And remember the gifts, blessings of Allah in the hope that you may succeed. And also remember last panel with Allah. And there's a very telling verse of sort of jamara. You know, I've mentioned a few swords, which one's sort of
And now sort of to jamara.
The thing about these three students is that these are the three sorts of prophets in the lahardee, who was sending them along with Harsha would recite in Jamaat regularly.
So sudo su de la Harsha. And then other weeks Oracle jamara in the first article
Followed by Salton one Africa.
And these are the messages in these sorts, which we should hear regularly on a weekly basis. What's one of the most beautiful messages of sortable jamara, about remembering the last panel what that law says for you that all the data from the shadow fell out of their home and father in law, with good luck, theater, land liquido clear on that when jamara sada is completed, then disperse in the land of a land seek of is bound to it simply means that as Muslims, we aren't an obligation to observe a day of rest because we don't believe that a law rested on the seventh day.
Therefore, we are, we are allowed to work all the way up to jamara sada even on our holy day, because Allah says when you hear the call for jamara
for so in a decree law, what will be done hastening towards remembrance of Allah and abandon trade. So you only have to abandon trade at jamara than
so you can trade all morning work fine. And then after tomorrow, losses, you still don't have to rest. Fie that all the disallowance Allah has, it has ended from the shuttle fill out, disperse in the amount of a lot of work done woman funded in loans equal the bounty of a lot.
So go and earn wealth,
but not because they're in life success. Allah then says immediately thereafter, but don't forget your GT with Kuru la cathedra, learn
and remember a lot excessively in the hope that you may succeed. So Allah tells us again, success, yes, go out and earn before jamara go out and earn after jamara you are earning the bounty in the systems of Allah. But there is not success. Success is only in the remembrance, and remember, like excessively, in the hope that you may succeed.
I'll end with finally saying that all of this is to do with the dunya leading us to the alpha and that is the true success. It's the alpha which is a true success.
And sort of humans are the last panel with Allah says, Allah in the audio line our whole format even without

There is no change in the words of Allah. This is a large promise
that Erica Hall falls down the this is the great success, meaning the reward of a law, the total lack of fear the total lack of grief from the Day of Judgment,
glad tidings in the dunya. And in the US. This is the Great's and true success.
In another verse, the last panel with Allah says, in sort of the manner in sort of an hour off
well, it wasn't a Yama either,
from a couple of more was enough
the scales are true, the weighing is true on that day of one's deeds. So whoever scales are heavy IE with good deeds, and these are the ones who are successful
And those whose scales are light on the Day of Judgment, they are the ones who have lost themselves and the best continues, whom are going to be a out in every moment because they were they would commit to wrong to our science, but the most important thing is they will lose their souls. That's a true loss, they will lose themselves. And the only true success the only true successful ones are those whose scales will be heavy on the Day of Judgment. And sort of the the last panel hoarder either beautifully says Yamato mini no one

And it will be announced to them, that for you this day you're glad tidings or gardens beneath which river should shall flow there and you shall reside forever.
Then Allah says this is the true success again.
So if we are going to work for anything,
I spoke earlier about an American with the kathal we compete with each other, we rival each other, we vibe with each other in what the same markers of worldly success that are so
meager in contrast to that
we compete with one on the last panel with Allah speaking of the people of Jin
LaSalle, describing the people of gentlemen their pleasures, all other than SES, or fee their liquor forget the nafa Singleton
and it is in this that those who wish to compete should compete.
And in sort of saw for the last panel with Anna describing the lark quotes, what the people have done that will say, again, when the angels will announce them that there shall be no death.
They will say we won't die, we will never die again.
For mathematics, academia tea, in LA Mota, tienen una semana de.
That's what we will never die again, except for the first death when we tasted when we left the world. And we won't ever be punished or tested again.
And the people announced in the hallowed halls on our Veen. Indeed, this is the true success Nithya ha that for the airmen in the room, that it is for the like of this, that those who do works should work. It is for the like of this that those who make an effort should make an effort. It is for the life of this that those who strive should strive. The people of Jim that will announce that. So
this is the true success. These are the markers of true success. I pray that last panel with Allah enable all of us to stand the alarm makers amongst the muffler, and the fire is on as he describes them, the people of fuller and afos of success and attainment.
