# Shadee Elmasry – The Gauges of Our Worship

The conversation centers around the importance of measuring one's ability to stay healthy and prevent health-related problems, including their income, sleep, and sugar and caffeine intake. It is crucial to prevent slouching during the night and to start preparing for a fetcher. The speakers emphasize the importance of avoiding drinking too much coffee and not consuming too much caffeine, as well as the diversity of body types and behavior that affects one's sleep.
00:00:05 --> 00:00:09

We need to gauge our ability if we care about something.

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

We gauge it.

00:00:12 --> 00:00:15

We measure it. If you

00:00:17 --> 00:00:21

if you ride a bike, there's no gauges, right? There's no gauge on

00:00:21 --> 00:00:21

the bike.

00:00:23 --> 00:00:26

If you're walking there no gauges, of course, if you have a bike,

00:00:26 --> 00:00:32

there's just that one five speed bike, right? Or a 10 speed. If you

00:00:32 --> 00:00:33

have a car though,

00:00:34 --> 00:00:37

you have how many gauges? You have? You got the oil, you got the

00:00:37 --> 00:00:42

temperature, you got the rpm, and you got the miles per hour mph.

00:00:42 --> 00:00:47

Okay, you have more gauges, you have drive reverse neutral. Right?

00:00:48 --> 00:00:49

Overdrive.

00:00:50 --> 00:00:56

So you have more gauges. If you have a car, or an airplane.

00:00:57 --> 00:00:59

How many gauges Do you have?

00:01:00 --> 00:01:03

Like, you don't even you can't even count how many edges you

00:01:03 --> 00:01:07

have. If you have a shuttle up in space, you have a whole room full

00:01:07 --> 00:01:13

of gauges. Right? So the more serious people take a matter, the

00:01:13 --> 00:01:18

more gauges there are. Okay? Now think about how serious people are

00:01:18 --> 00:01:23

about their finances. Okay, how many gauges people have people who

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

are serious about Of course, if you're like a normal person, like

00:01:25 --> 00:01:29

most of us, there's one gauge is there enough money to get through

00:01:29 --> 00:01:33

this month are not like one gauge, basically, one check is coming in,

00:01:34 --> 00:01:37

and it's going to five different places. That's one gauge. That's

00:01:37 --> 00:01:41

it, okay. But people who are serious about their financial

00:01:41 --> 00:01:46

situation, they have a lot of gauges, their portfolio is

00:01:46 --> 00:01:49

diversified, they have a bank account for college, a bank

00:01:49 --> 00:01:53

account for retirement, a bank account for a monthly expenses,

00:01:53 --> 00:01:56

and maybe savings for their vacation and their entertainment

00:01:56 --> 00:01:59

or whatever, okay? And then therefore, they're gonna have

00:01:59 --> 00:02:02

their investment portfolio, their investment or investing in one

00:02:02 --> 00:02:05

thing, no one invests all their money in one thing, their

00:02:05 --> 00:02:09

investment may be in seven things, okay? And then they have revenue

00:02:09 --> 00:02:13

streams, all right, they got the job and they got the house that

00:02:13 --> 00:02:16

they rent out, then they got whatever that is bringing them

00:02:16 --> 00:02:21

monthly revenue. Then with all this, you have to have years ago

00:02:21 --> 00:02:23

gauges, you got to know how my pay is account on all these different

00:02:23 --> 00:02:27

things. How am I going to do that? So you see, the more seriously you

00:02:27 --> 00:02:29

take the issue of money and advance in the issue of money.

00:02:30 --> 00:02:31

You're gonna have mortgages.

00:02:32 --> 00:02:34

But you take someone in the matter of Dean.

00:02:35 --> 00:02:39

And he's doesn't really care. Right? He can't even tell you what

00:02:39 --> 00:02:44

his gauges are. Right? What is his gauges? He doesn't even tell you.

00:02:44 --> 00:02:48

Well, yeah, I pray Jim. Ah, all right. I pray when I can. Right. I

00:02:48 --> 00:02:50

don't do the huddle. I mean, maybe as three gauges, you can have the

00:02:50 --> 00:02:51

most sophisticated guy.

00:02:53 --> 00:02:56

Okay, sophisticated guy, a professional, someone say, oh my

00:02:56 --> 00:02:59

gosh, if he walks in, we have to stop the class and stand up for

00:02:59 --> 00:03:00

him. Right?

00:03:01 --> 00:03:05

But sometimes in matters of Dean, he doesn't take it seriously. Ask

00:03:05 --> 00:03:09

him what are your gauges? I pray him did I give charity I pay my

00:03:09 --> 00:03:13

Zika he's done. He's happy. I've met some people like this. I've

00:03:13 --> 00:03:17

met people like this. I spent on the matter of their dunya he may

00:03:17 --> 00:03:21

have a staff of 20 people, a staff of 200 people in his company in

00:03:21 --> 00:03:25

the matter of his dunya ask him to gauge his of your religious life.

00:03:26 --> 00:03:29

He says will lie if I pray five times a day. If I listen to a

00:03:29 --> 00:03:33

lecture a week, and I say a one would have done night I'm happy

00:03:33 --> 00:03:38

00:03:38 --> 00:03:41

00:03:41 --> 00:03:43

two years, two weeks for you to understand my company. But I've

00:03:43 --> 00:03:47

only understood your religious life and one sentence in two

00:03:47 --> 00:03:52

seconds. So what you care about, you have many gauges and you

00:03:52 --> 00:03:56

monitor many things because you care about it. Ask a regular guy

00:03:56 --> 00:03:57

like us, like another example.

00:03:59 --> 00:04:02

How do you what do you do to keep healthy? Some people have no

00:04:02 --> 00:04:07

gauges. They don't care about it. Okay, other people. I stopped

00:04:07 --> 00:04:11

eating at this hour, and I do one exercise a day. He has two gauges

00:04:11 --> 00:04:15

to stay healthy. But ask the guy who looks like a sculpture. Okay.

00:04:16 --> 00:04:23

Tell me about right your fitness standards. He needs a book to tell

00:04:23 --> 00:04:28

you for I do calf's at Tuesday at three o'clock. Okay? All right.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:33

And he's got gauges. He's, he works out he's got a schedule for

00:04:33 --> 00:04:37

muscles you don't know exists. Okay, like the little muscle in

00:04:37 --> 00:04:42

the side here. Okay. stuff you don't know exists. He's got a

00:04:42 --> 00:04:43

gauge for it.

00:04:45 --> 00:04:49

So we're gonna start with our, with our spirits and the Olia have

00:04:49 --> 00:04:53

gauges like, it's they got assistance. There was one of the

00:04:53 --> 00:04:58

older of Egypt. Okay. He had a thing about his food. He would not

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

eat anyone's food.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:03

his daughter was so serious in India, his daughter as an

00:05:03 --> 00:05:08

assistant to check what he's actually eating, okay? There are a

00:05:08 --> 00:05:12

lot of subtleties in the matter a lot of subtleties in the matter.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:17

00:05:18 --> 00:05:21

in the matter of two, so for some people, their sleep is out of

00:05:21 --> 00:05:25

whack. And the issue of sleep is related to two things, you can't

00:05:25 --> 00:05:30

just tackle sleep. Okay, you can't just tackle sleep. Sleep is

00:05:30 --> 00:05:34

related to two things, your sugar and caffeine intake, and your

00:05:34 --> 00:05:38

online presence and your screen time. If these two things go late

00:05:38 --> 00:05:43

in the day, then and you're worried about sleep, you're gonna

00:05:43 --> 00:05:46

fail, you set yourself up to fail. So in fact, if you're serious

00:05:46 --> 00:05:50

about the issue of sleeping at a regular hour, which is very

00:05:50 --> 00:05:55

important for the next gauge, which is Fudger. Alright, so you

00:05:55 --> 00:05:58

see how you have to keep going back, you realize that if you're

00:05:58 --> 00:06:02

very serious about Fudger, then you have to be as serious about

00:06:02 --> 00:06:05

sleep. If you're going to be serious about sleep, you got to be

00:06:05 --> 00:06:09

serious about the issue of sugar, caffeine intake, and screentime.

00:06:09 --> 00:06:14

Because it's proven that these two things they need to actually stop

00:06:14 --> 00:06:18

way earlier than you have ever imagined. If you really want to

00:06:18 --> 00:06:21

dominate the subject, the issue of sleeping on time, sleeping at a

00:06:21 --> 00:06:25

regular hour, right and getting good sleep. Because vicar needs

00:06:25 --> 00:06:30

good sleep, you can't be half alert, in order to thicker so

00:06:30 --> 00:06:35

people are even saying you're going into five, six and seven

00:06:35 --> 00:06:39

o'clock at when you actually need to start your preparations for

00:06:39 --> 00:06:40

fetcher.

00:06:41 --> 00:06:45

Okay, your first stop is sleeping on time. So around between the

00:06:45 --> 00:06:49

hours of five and seven is when everyone's different, right? You

00:06:49 --> 00:06:54

need to actually eliminate and cut down or just close up shop on

00:06:54 --> 00:06:56

caffeine, sugar and screen time.

00:06:57 --> 00:07:00

Is you see how serious this matter is. It's not a joke. When you see

00:07:00 --> 00:07:03

a worldly of Allah azza wa jal and you look at his life is very

00:07:03 --> 00:07:05

simple. What does he do? He's praying and fasting. Oh, he's so

00:07:05 --> 00:07:08

simple. Okay, the why is only like one out of a million people doing

00:07:08 --> 00:07:12

it. If it's that easy. It's not that easy. It is not that easy.

00:07:12 --> 00:07:16

It's something that looks so simple. So it looks so simple.

00:07:16 --> 00:07:17

Like, you take one of

00:07:18 --> 00:07:22

a bodybuilder, what's he doing? He's lifting weights. That's all

00:07:22 --> 00:07:25

it is. That's it, that's a big deal. And don't eat certain

00:07:25 --> 00:07:26

things.

00:07:30 --> 00:07:34

Every million, right? Why are we all failing in this subject? If

00:07:34 --> 00:07:38

it's that simple, it looks simple. It's not simple. It takes a lot of

00:07:38 --> 00:07:42

effort. Right? And there are gauges, there are certain things

00:07:42 --> 00:07:46

you didn't even think were things that mattered, but they mattered

00:07:47 --> 00:07:50

that you don't never think that your cigarette intake, caffeine

00:07:50 --> 00:07:53

and screentime affect your spirituality. People never

00:07:53 --> 00:07:55

imagined it. It's a huge deal.

00:07:56 --> 00:08:00

Just like eating bagels for a bodybuilder, you won't find him

00:08:00 --> 00:08:05

eating a bagel, right? There's just bread. Basically, you're not

00:08:05 --> 00:08:07

gonna find him eating certain foods. You're like, that's a big

00:08:07 --> 00:08:10

deal. Of course, it's a big deal. How much water you drink is a big

00:08:10 --> 00:08:15

deal. So as we advance in draw near to Allah azza wa jal, our war

00:08:16 --> 00:08:22

is with our bad habits. It's our war. Right? And you we are up

00:08:22 --> 00:08:29

ended. Okay, we are upended by our bad habits. Okay. And just like in

00:08:29 --> 00:08:32

bodybuilding, everyone's different and everyone will have different

00:08:32 --> 00:08:35

body type. Likewise, you have a different knifes type. Your

00:08:35 --> 00:08:39

enough's is different. Some people the issue of sleep is not a big

00:08:39 --> 00:08:44

deal. It just not a problem. Food is a problem. Others food is not a

00:08:44 --> 00:08:48

problem. Sleep is a problem. So, this is where the involvement of

00:08:48 --> 00:08:51

the chef comes evolved, right because your body type is

00:08:51 --> 00:08:55
