I'm already home my young brothers and sisters of Islam I pray you all welcome. I have with me today the Porsche 911 made by lego technique it has to be built. It's not like what Lego was when I was younger. Absolutely phenomenal and very realistic. The engineering is precise and crisp, masha Allah Tabata Allah. It has 1458 pieces and countless steps in order to build now behind me, I have the defender, and that pucks next to the Porsche and the defender is bigger than the Porsche. Even more pieces, even more steps and guess what? I didn't invest even a second of time into both these vehicles. My son booked them, but that's okay. Because today, it's not about the Porsche or the

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

defender, but it's about going back to school.

00:01:10--> 00:01:51

Back to school to Panama schools across the world, mashallah Tabata cola have opened, and the young Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the boys and the girls from the Ummah are returning back to school, to be productive to learn beneficial knowledge. And I just wanted to share with you some guidance from the Sunnah of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam as you go back to school, number one, my young brothers and sisters in Islam, if you put Allah first, you will never ever finish lust. Going to school for a Muslim shouldn't be about the exam results. It shouldn't be about just passing. But it shouldn't be about the how right? How did you manage? How did you go about your

00:01:51--> 00:02:35

business as a student? When you put ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada first, this means that you don't go to school to graduate, you don't go to school just to get a result. Yes, you want to graduate. Yes, you want great results, but that will happen anyway, if you apply yourself excellently, but going to school for a Muslim should be about pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala going there for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala going there to use the blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us in terms of our mind in terms of the knowledge that Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed in different spheres of life, acquiring that knowledge and then utilizing it in a way that makes the

00:02:35--> 00:03:17

Omar Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam be felt for the wider Ummah, to benefit from the mercy of Islam, just like scholars of the past did with all the different sciences and history records how Subhanallah it was Muslim scholars that lay down the foundations of many of the great inventions that we have today. So make Allah subhanho wa Taala your purpose put Allah first. And you'll never ever finish last if you put Allah Subhana viatera First, not only when you pass well in sha Allah, because if you put Allah first you're going to study hard, you're not going to procrastinate, you're going to do your work on time. Why would you do this? Because you're doing it for Allah, right? And

00:03:17--> 00:04:01

Allah has done so much for us. And if I'm going to school for the sake of Allah, then I want to do it properly. Because every day I am handing my day, my time at school to Allah subhanho wa Taala because I'm doing it for his sake alone, right? So if you put Allah Subhana Allah to Allah first, you won't finish last in terms of your results in terms of your graduation, but also more importantly, the day you spend at school will be a day spent in Jenga. Why? Because if you go to school for the sake of Allah subhanahu atter Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward you and when Allah rewards you your channel grows bigger for you Allah places angels were to dig your streams for

00:04:01--> 00:04:43

your agenda to bury your treasures for your agenda to plant your forest in your agenda to build your palaces in your agenda. Imagine every second you spend in class every second you spend studying every second you spending your homework. It entails angels beautifying your agenda for you. Why? Because you are really in the remembrance of Allah. Why because you put Allah first you're doing it for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is tip number one, ensure that you put Allah first make Allah your purpose for your study, not the degree not passing, not graduating, not getting a certificate not getting a nine or a star and so on and so forth that will come in sha

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

Allah because all those things are results of your application. The application is good inshallah it will come with for a believer a true when is when you are Jana feels your presence on Earth for that day you looked on that so that's tip number one. Put Allah first you

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

never finish last. Tip number two, my own brothers and sisters in Islam. The sooner the better. I'm sure we've all heard these statements, the sooner the better. However, for a Muslim, there's an even more important statement and that is the sooner the better, the sooner as you know, is walking in the footsteps of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam trying to do what you know, he would want you to do if he was sat with you in class, if he were sat with you at Breaktime, if he was sat with you, when you with your friends, if he were sat with you in your home, living your life, as you know, he would want you to live by if he had been with you, right? We know that we if the prophets

00:05:44--> 00:06:22

of Allah, Allah, he was synonymous with us, we wouldn't want to do anything that will make him upset, we would want to do that which would make him smile, right? So the sooner the better. follow the footsteps of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you will only succeed why the sooner, the better. Now I know when you go to school, there's different challenges. You know, there's some who want to be disruptive in class. Why? Because through it, they might become popular. There's some who speak in a certain way, dress in a certain way, cut their hair in a certain way. Why? Because through this, they have enough to put on social media and it grows the following and so on and so

00:06:22--> 00:07:02

forth. I promise you, my brother and sister in Islam, it doesn't matter how many followers you have on Facebook and Instagram and all the other social media channels tick tock, etc. What matters is how many angels follow you. how famous you are with the angels of Allah knows the people that Allah has created. Fame on Earth is temporary. People follow you for a while and then believe you if you stop feeding them, if you stop doing that, which gives them what they want, they will leave you right. So don't do what people want. Do what is right. Why? Because at the end of the day, we all have to die and return to Allah and the one who returns to Allah with the most following of angels

00:07:02--> 00:07:45

they will succeed why the angels follow those who Allah loves. So live your life in a way that makes Allah love you. And Allah subhana wa Tada said, in the third Jews in the Quran, he said that whoever wants Allah's forgiveness, right, whoever wants of us forgiveness, Allah's mercy, then they should follow Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and if they do so then Allah will forgive them. Subhanallah right, but we are only follow Mohammed. So remember, tip number two, the sooner the better. So tip number one was put Allah first and you'll never ever finish last. Tip number two, the sooner the better. Don't follow the trends follow the trend of the summer. If you see kids being

00:07:45--> 00:08:22

disruptive in class, don't follow them just for the sake of following see them speaking in a certain way using certain language, you know, delaying the homework, trying to duck here trying to dive there, people find it amusing and people find it nice and entertaining and through it. These people feel that they become popular Chapin will come to you and tell you speak like them, dress like them, act like them. So you can be popular as well. Put the prophets of Allah Allah he will send them first remember, what would you do? Had he been with you? And he will never be with us because he's passed away. But Allah some kind of way to add is at higher layer, the layer moot is the Ever Living

00:08:22--> 00:09:06

he watches us He hears us. What would you want Allah to see from your actions? And what would you want Allah to hear from your speech? So remember that, the sooner the better. Last but not least, my dearest young brothers and sisters in Islam. Remember, as a Muslim, you're not being raised as children, even raised as leaders. So don't see yourself for who you are now. But see yourself for the potential that Allah has given you. A Jana builder on Earth. And there's only one way to build a building Jana happens through Of course, worshipping Allah how he wants us to worship him following the footsteps of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam for through that we will worship Allah how he

00:09:06--> 00:09:49

wants us to worship him, but also in being transformative individuals we've heard of transformers, we want to be transformative individuals a mercy to mankind as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was a shining Langton and lamp in every space that we enter, be it at school, be the workplace Pete within the community in the masjid at home, whenever we come from people feel amazed at our presence and they feel inspired by our presence. This is the potential that Allah has given you so don't see yourself as young now. See yourself as a future leader, a potential leader why you have led ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah as your mandate you have hamdulillah Allah subhanho wa

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

Taala Allah and believe in Him in your heart and you have the Sunnah as your guide. You can only lead see yourself as that, that I am a future leader.

00:10:00--> 00:10:09

If I will be a shining lanten A lighthouse, I will be a means of quantitive progress of amazing

00:10:11--> 00:10:49

transformation not just for myself but those around me see yourself as that because that's the God given potential that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you so as you go back to school, and as you are in school think of these things, my dearest brother, my dear sister, my young brother, my younger sister, be the best that you can be the home of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam waits for you, the angels, the angels are making dua for you. You are from the family of la ilaha illallah, Muhammad Rasool Allah, you have an identity, you have an identity and you have a responsibility for we collectively carry the legacy of the most beloved person to us, the Prophet

00:10:49--> 00:11:22

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I love you for the sake of Allah and I wish you all the best and I look forward to seeing what you can bring to the Ummah and by the way, when you get a chance, or a chance, don't forget to look into these mashallah proactive projects, projects that keep us away from social media and the phones and really allows us to develop skill sets, the skill sets that leadership actually requires. I'll speak to you soon insha Allah until next time, Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
