Allows Rihanna Darla speaks

00:00:46--> 00:00:48

in the Quran, and Allah says

00:00:49--> 00:00:51

Bismillah R Rahman Rahim while us

surgical olavi

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

Allah says,

00:01:17--> 00:01:19

Allah swears by time.

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

And Allah says,

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

verily man is in a state of loss,

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

except those who have iemon

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

those who do good deeds.

00:01:40--> 00:01:44

And those who encourage one another,

00:01:46--> 00:01:47

to speak the truth,

00:01:51--> 00:01:53

to defend the truth

00:01:55--> 00:01:59

and ultimately, to be prepared to lay down your life

00:02:01--> 00:02:03

for the truth

00:02:04--> 00:02:05

of La Ilaha Illa Ma.

00:02:10--> 00:02:11

And finally,

00:02:14--> 00:02:18

our aim is to encourage one another,

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

to be patient

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

in the pursuit of truth,

00:02:24--> 00:02:25

to be patient,

00:02:26--> 00:02:32

in the pursuit of the agenda, to be patient, in carrying out the bar that allows

00:02:34--> 00:02:39

me to make Salah five times a day requires patience.

00:02:40--> 00:02:41

You have to be patient.

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

You have to slow down and

00:02:45--> 00:02:51

have to slow down at us and Mercury production to wake up for fashion.

00:02:53--> 00:02:57

And these commitments to allows mahanta requires patience.

00:02:59--> 00:03:01

Mr. Mousavi Rahim Allah

00:03:02--> 00:03:06

used to say that if Allah had revealed only this surah

00:03:08--> 00:03:12

these few lines, it would it would have been enough

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

as a guidance for the whole of mankind.

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

What about the rest of the Quran?

00:03:21--> 00:03:24

But what do we today say about time? Allah swears by time.

00:03:26--> 00:03:30

What is man today when he talks about time? What does he say? Time is money.

00:03:33--> 00:03:39

You heard that expression. Don't waste my time is money. I say don't waste my time I waste my own time.

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

But people say Time is money.

00:03:44--> 00:03:56

Of course, there's some truth in that. In that you can use time to produce wealth it needs time to make money you need time to produce wealth. And wasting time means that if you're a man who wants to make money that you are not making money,

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

but to say that time is money also implies

00:04:05--> 00:04:08

that the most important object of life is money.

00:04:12--> 00:04:13

In other words,

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

just as the value of money,

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

women's value time.

00:04:24--> 00:04:29

Coming back to the woods philosopher, Abdullah Hassan

00:04:30--> 00:04:31

II reports.

00:04:33--> 00:04:43

On as the hub of the interview salami says, whenever two companions used to meet, they would not depart from each other until both of them I decided for the loss of two each other.

00:04:45--> 00:04:58

They would sit, discuss meet and just before they leave, each one of them would reach worth loss. Why would they do it to remind themselves of the eternal loss of those who waste their time

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

in

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

Foolish pursuits, we will start time and gossip.

00:05:04--> 00:05:12

We will start waste our time in useless tails. We waste our time in meaningless pursuits, you can spend five hours in the golf course.

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

But we can't give our five minutes to learn is deep.

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

Why? Because

00:05:21--> 00:05:22

we don't have time.

00:05:23--> 00:05:26

All those professional men,

00:05:27--> 00:05:33

we have no time, you have to make an appointment to see them. But they owe golfers.

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

I'm not a golfer I wish I was.

00:05:42--> 00:05:53

But I can imagine how much time they spend me but they have no time. You must come at 12 o'clock to his wherever he is. And you will see him there or the president or the vice versa, but they also take off.

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

But they don't have time.

00:05:59--> 00:06:00

So

00:06:01--> 00:06:04

we go back and we ask ourselves the question

00:06:07--> 00:06:26

we did the people in the in those days, where do they get the time from the early Muslims they conquered the world. From the Atlantic to China, they spray the new civilization. They collected hundreds of 1000s of Hadith wrote hundreds of 1000s of books.

00:06:27--> 00:06:28

Where did they find the time?

00:06:30--> 00:06:31

The answer is very simple.

00:06:33--> 00:06:34

While we are driven

00:06:37--> 00:06:40

by wealth, when we talk about time,

00:06:41--> 00:06:43

they were driven by a different metaphor.

00:06:45--> 00:06:50

A different cause, a different inspiration, a different motivation.

00:06:53--> 00:06:56

What was that? for them time was life itself.

00:06:57--> 00:07:09

Time was life. Time was living this life to the fullest. And using this life and using this time to prepare themselves for the everlasting life.

00:07:11--> 00:07:15

So in Islam, it is not Time is money.

00:07:16--> 00:07:21

No, time is life itself. Time is the essence of life

00:07:28--> 00:07:31

it's a to see how we all of us including myself.

00:07:32--> 00:07:35

Our waste is valuable and priceless gift which Allah has given to us

00:07:36--> 00:07:38

how many times Haven't we saved

00:07:39--> 00:07:41

Yeah, I need to kill some time.

00:07:43--> 00:07:47

kill time and to kill some time. I've got time to kill

00:07:51--> 00:07:54

That's why they call us terrorists I suppose because maybe we say that

00:07:56--> 00:08:05

or we say wow you know time is really passing me by all we say I'm pressed for time you know don't have time to connect.

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

Who have dusty makossa Bank

00:08:10--> 00:08:13

in the Old City who Yeah, oh man say Mahalo for lovely jannetty john

00:08:15--> 00:08:16

Carmack

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

now when I get old I think

00:08:21--> 00:08:22

why did they say

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

such an important day but I will say that

00:08:27--> 00:08:32

five minutes on the masala and two hours in the cinema.

00:08:35--> 00:08:36

You think about it.

00:08:39--> 00:08:46

We don't want to make it stay far after the Salah. We don't want to make Subhana Allah we don't want to sit and think about Allah.

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

We find all kinds of excuses. Let's go to the toilet.

00:08:53--> 00:09:00

make a phone call. My cell phone rang ping, ping, ping ping so I have to go and see who's trying to get ahold of me.

00:09:03--> 00:09:08

But I can sit two hours young two hours in the cinema. Five hours in the golf course.

00:09:09--> 00:09:15

Maybe two hours in front of the TV, Days of Our Lives whatever it is, you know everybody watches that.

00:09:16--> 00:09:18

Even the lawn until they have half an hour.

00:09:25--> 00:09:35

So we waste this precious gift which is given to us. Yet we talk about everybody will say save water save electricity save money. Save Petro?

00:09:37--> 00:09:38

What about saving time?

00:09:39--> 00:09:48

The most precious commodity that was given us every moment is illusion. You know the big illusion. We have enough time. It's always the bottom and why worry you know,

00:09:49--> 00:09:54

always tomorrow there's always next week. It's always before Ramadan and after Ramadan.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

Then is when it's winter. We should wait for some

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

When it's time when we say we wait for winter, and so forth and so on

00:10:06--> 00:10:06

in Jamar

00:10:08--> 00:10:09

Allahumma.

00:10:11--> 00:10:12

And we know i mean we want to have a sell by date.

00:10:15--> 00:10:25

It's written on our phones, we have a sell by date right here. Before we were born, a lost father knew exactly the time the day and the place when he was going to take us away from the studio.

00:10:27--> 00:10:38

I mean, I remember my mother and my father, they were alive like me, my father used to stand in front of the people and make jumar to them and get on the member and leave them in Salah like lectures. Where is he today is gone God.

00:10:40--> 00:10:44

My mother was a woman who used to teach people and do all kinds of good things.

00:10:45--> 00:10:45

God

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

I look at the back row

00:10:52--> 00:10:57

of the masjid after a few years that I've been gone, all new faces

00:10:59--> 00:11:00

were all the old faces.

00:11:01--> 00:11:07

Okay, some of them are not coming anymore, but that's another story. But most of them have passed away most

00:11:09--> 00:11:13

of the law terranova says now Lisa solemn said

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

config dunya.

00:11:19--> 00:11:27

Can nakahara been rather severely there is very important lecture. Very, very important. Maybe the most important lecture in your whole life.

00:11:30--> 00:11:36

Professor Sallam said be in this world like a stranger or just a passer by being in this world like a stranger

00:11:37--> 00:11:40

don't get attached to your house your car.

00:11:42--> 00:11:43

I'm not gonna include the wife.

00:11:44--> 00:11:48

But she's also gonna go on if you're lucky before you

00:11:52--> 00:11:53

and you're going to go

00:11:56--> 00:12:02

to Lisa salams has been this word like a stranger don't attach yourself keep that distance

00:12:04--> 00:12:13

so that the day that you lie on your deathbed you smile and say this is meaningless to me this palace that I'm living in the four by four in the driveway, you know my

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

policies that my children hold

00:12:19--> 00:12:29

and you only come to realize are very less Oh, this is the older you get the more you that are valueless it is money monies? How many how many of you are here who are not maybe in your 60s?

00:12:30--> 00:12:35

And you see how much money went through your hands? Where is it? with

00:12:36--> 00:12:51

how many cars Did you drive with the cars maybe having their own homes you oh no how many beds can you sleep in you ever seen on the beach? to three houses for you know the future? You know, you're by for investment.

00:12:53--> 00:13:01

And the house in the in the agenda? Who is that house? You posted us? Because remember agenda is an empty place. Nothing is

00:13:03--> 00:13:05

empty. Your

00:13:06--> 00:13:14

agenda? Yeah. you plant the trees of the agenda. Yeah, when you say Subhana Allah you plant the tree in the agenda.

00:13:17--> 00:13:27

So even if you sit in your lounge and you close your eyes and you say Super heinola you are you are a farmer. You are a planter. Not for this dunya

00:13:28--> 00:13:30

c'est la ilaha illAllah

00:13:31--> 00:13:32

trees planted.

00:13:34--> 00:13:36

So now he says MMC and

00:13:38--> 00:13:41

even your mama used to say is I'm saying

00:13:45--> 00:13:51

when night comes don't wait and expect the morning to come to you may not come

00:13:53--> 00:13:53

while that

00:13:57--> 00:14:01

when you wake up in the morning don't expect that you will live till the sentence.

00:14:03--> 00:14:04

Those people who died in the fire they

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

put somebody in the hearts of the people their families

00:14:11--> 00:14:16

but when those mothers took those children to the crash in the morning did they ever think for one moment

00:14:18--> 00:14:22

that those children will not be there anymore than when the night when the sentence

00:14:26--> 00:14:28

was was men statically melodic

00:14:30--> 00:14:39

so use your house and your use and your strength for the days when you will be sick will be sick.

00:14:40--> 00:14:44

My words you may not be sick but you slow down.

00:14:46--> 00:14:52

The arthritis will get to the iPad will get to you the sugar will get to you the energy levels will drop.

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

So when you young,

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

fast maxilla to Attica

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

Find out your things which

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

make solid,

00:15:06--> 00:15:06

new young.

00:15:08--> 00:15:13

Do it when you're young, because you're old to come. You want to, but you can't.

00:15:14--> 00:15:20

Woman hierarchically mode and use your life to prepare for your death. Row all Buhari.

00:15:22--> 00:15:26

Now I'm going to ask you a question now. And I want you to

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

who can ask that answer.

00:15:32--> 00:15:42

See a nice guy that can embarrass today again, the other guy, I'm embarrassed, he came back after three weeks. So I shouldn't do that, you know, everybody was not sitting.

00:15:44--> 00:15:54

Alright, I'm not gonna ask you this. I want to ask you, every one of you and I want you to give yourself an answer without thinking. You might just give yourself an answer. With no thinking.

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

This is the question.

00:15:59--> 00:16:00

What do you think?

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

Is the length

00:16:07--> 00:16:11

of the average lifespan of a human being in days?

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

How many days just give yourself a finger don't think don't multiply just stick.

00:16:18--> 00:16:23

If you thought 100,000 days is the average lifespan of a person,

00:16:24--> 00:16:29

you know, along 100,000 days is 270 years.

00:16:34--> 00:16:41

100,000 days many brothers and sisters is the equivalent of 270 years.

00:16:45--> 00:16:54

A million days. If you wanna if you want to live a million days you will live 2750 years 2700 entities.

00:16:57--> 00:17:06

So when I tell people that an average lifespan of a human being is how many days days days, not days, 27,375 days

00:17:07--> 00:17:11

average lifespan of a person who will live until the age of 75.

00:17:12--> 00:17:20

If you're going to live under 75 you only have how many days? 27,375 days?

00:17:25--> 00:17:26

You also don't have

00:17:27--> 00:17:27

me no

00:17:29--> 00:17:33

never I don't think any one of you ever so did you ever 27,000 days

00:17:35--> 00:17:36

and then he was lifted 75

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

save you live

00:17:43--> 00:17:48

60 years old 65 years you you have leisure for 20,000 days.

00:17:49--> 00:17:51

I must have listened 20,000 days.

00:17:53--> 00:17:54

If you are 60 years old now.

00:17:56--> 00:17:57

You'd have already

00:17:59--> 00:18:01

left 11,000 days.

00:18:04--> 00:18:07

And this means you only got 16 and a half 1000 days left

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

to frightening isn't it?

00:18:16--> 00:18:21

And today's Friday What did we do? Mondays? God Tuesday's Godwin's is gone through as is gone.

00:18:23--> 00:18:24

Today's friday

00:18:26--> 00:18:29

so how many days was the 27,000 is gone this week, five days

00:18:31--> 00:18:33

every week reduces by five days.

00:18:36--> 00:18:41

So you we have if you live to 75 27,300 days that's what you have.

00:18:43--> 00:18:46

Professor Salaam says is turning turning

00:18:48--> 00:18:50

Hamsun kubla Hampson Prophet says

00:18:51--> 00:18:54

value five things before five things

00:18:56--> 00:18:58

tshabalala cobla, hedonic

00:19:01--> 00:19:04

value your use before old age

00:19:06--> 00:19:07

what's your

00:19:09--> 00:19:12

value your health, before sickness.

00:19:17--> 00:19:20

value your wealth before

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

poverty

00:19:25--> 00:19:26

reduces it

00:19:29--> 00:19:29

was

00:19:31--> 00:19:34

variable value your spare free time that you have

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

before you don't have it anymore

00:19:45--> 00:19:46

or higher.

00:19:47--> 00:19:49

value your life before death.

00:19:52--> 00:19:55

To remember you have 27,000 days in your life.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

In other words, life is too short to waste

00:20:02--> 00:20:06

Millions of people all over the world die every day.

00:20:07--> 00:20:08

And they've wasted their lives

00:20:10--> 00:20:11

wasted their lives.

00:20:13--> 00:20:19

And they never really enjoyed the life because their own life was was motivated by

00:20:20--> 00:20:22

money today we have the situation people are

00:20:24--> 00:20:25

motivated and yet

00:20:27--> 00:20:34

everybody has cashflow problems. So I think where are they going and everybody's, everybody's making money but if you ask the businessman

00:20:36--> 00:20:44

I don't have any cash. But But you know, sometimes business people work 18 hours a day, okay, no cash flow.

00:20:50--> 00:20:57

So, as today's we say in modern parlance, in modern language, people live and they don't even enjoy the right.

00:20:59--> 00:21:04

Flowers passed in by the children pass them by the grandchildren passing by.

00:21:05--> 00:21:06

They use passes them by

00:21:10--> 00:21:12

they never take the risk

00:21:13--> 00:21:17

that they'll offer bountiful, bountiful rewards. People don't take risks.

00:21:18--> 00:21:19

They live in a cocoon.

00:21:21--> 00:21:24

People take risks, people who believe in Allah,

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

people who believe

00:21:28--> 00:21:34

they've been put out for them before they were born. Therefore, they have to seek it in a Holloway

00:21:38--> 00:21:39

Professor Sallam said

00:21:46--> 00:21:50

jabril came and inspired me and told me

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

that no social

00:22:04--> 00:22:08

is consumed everything which Allah has ordained for that person.

00:22:10--> 00:22:10

So,

00:22:13--> 00:22:14

until you have

00:22:15--> 00:22:22

done that last drop of water and eaten the glass grain of rice, it has been written for you, it is nothing more

00:22:24--> 00:22:28

than for you know, no water, nothing for you, no more food, then you will die.

00:22:31--> 00:22:49

Until that time you will love even if you are lying in an icy unit, and only breathe in oxygen and get water through a pipe in your vein, but you will love because that oxygen and that fee is part of your visit which Allah has said.

00:22:52--> 00:22:58

So Julian says are inspired him to tell us so seek your visit in the hallway?

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

Waiting for you? Why one must?

00:23:10--> 00:23:21

So we don't take the risks because we have no tarakan we know we have no if you are doing something, you will say I'm doing this business and I'm doing it Hello. And I put my trust in Allah What is my risk?

00:23:25--> 00:23:26

out of my risk

00:23:29--> 00:23:29

in

00:23:33--> 00:23:34

my mind,

00:23:37--> 00:23:40

my clothes, my house all

00:23:43--> 00:23:45

the way all the leaves a lot behind for me.

00:23:49--> 00:24:01

Secondly, we live our lives and we never ever stand up for ourselves. Whenever we stand for what we believe we never defend the truth. No.

00:24:04--> 00:24:07

We fear men more than we fear Allah.

00:24:08--> 00:24:09

We say niglet

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

believe no Bradford

00:24:18--> 00:24:19

no small dogs eat no.

00:24:22--> 00:24:26

Egg watch TV, medical watch some mini brats and tiny

00:24:30--> 00:24:32

and our life is like that.

00:24:35--> 00:24:47

So we keep families together wallowing in all kinds of practices against Islam. Because we are afraid of men not afraid of

00:24:55--> 00:24:57

and we are also afraid to love

00:24:59--> 00:24:59

because we think we

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

We tell people we love them.

00:25:03--> 00:25:06

Maybe if I tell my wife too much I love her she will take advantage of my card.

00:25:09--> 00:25:09

Or

00:25:11--> 00:25:20

we are afraid to tell my boyfriend that I love him. Promises salon was even in Germany stuck his hand was in handy. Nancy Morris I love you.

00:25:23--> 00:25:24

Both I love you.

00:25:28--> 00:25:30

When you tell her big son, I love you,

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

man, your daughter, your son.

00:25:35--> 00:25:37

When you say I love you,

00:25:39--> 00:25:40

my son, I love you.

00:25:44--> 00:25:48

habibollah Allah call his prophet, my beloved.

00:25:55--> 00:26:00

So we live in this world where nothing about this world we can reach our dreams.

00:26:04--> 00:26:07

And we never accomplish anything because we're always putting out for tomorrow.

00:26:10--> 00:26:13

And we are just lazy. That's the bottom line.

00:26:18--> 00:26:19

Not user

00:26:20--> 00:26:20

behavior, I

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

must

00:26:28--> 00:26:32

not be allowed to learn who are the young men.

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

When the day he died,

00:26:44--> 00:26:46

he was about in his mid 30s when he died.

00:26:47--> 00:26:51

The Throne of Allah shook for this young man who died

00:26:53--> 00:26:53

was

00:26:56--> 00:26:56

Muslim No.

00:26:59--> 00:27:01

He was Muslim and he's about six years.

00:27:05--> 00:27:11

He was 30 karnavati when accepted Islam, he died at 3536 the throne of Allah Sheikh

00:27:14--> 00:27:24

Musab read about go buy a book on the lives of the Sahaba in English and read about six years six years. We live to 60 years

00:27:27--> 00:27:28

will even show

00:27:32--> 00:27:32

on the

00:27:33--> 00:27:35

way he died when he was martyred.

00:27:38--> 00:27:39

When

00:27:42--> 00:27:45

he was killed, a lot of people

00:27:47--> 00:27:49

know what's gonna happen to us now.

00:27:55--> 00:27:58

Remember the verse of the Quran Allah, Allah says Ma

00:28:01--> 00:28:02

Ma Mr.

00:28:03--> 00:28:04

Koz Holloman

00:28:08--> 00:28:08

he

00:28:09--> 00:28:13

said, Mohamed Salah was a messenger.

00:28:14--> 00:28:17

Maybe messengers have come and go before him.

00:28:19--> 00:28:22

It is chemo guys turn your back and run away.

00:28:26--> 00:28:28

He left the field

00:28:29--> 00:28:30

he left the battle

00:28:31--> 00:28:34

and he was killed. And when the prophet SAW him

00:28:37--> 00:28:45

and they wanted to cover any man you know the story they couldn't cover his feet because cover was too short and they pull down his face open. The Prophet cried

00:28:46--> 00:28:53

and the prophecy mini Narayan sada Kumar had to lie. The Prophet said they are men

00:28:56--> 00:28:57

in which they made to Allah

00:28:59--> 00:29:00

to Allah

00:29:01--> 00:29:03

is not making anybody else.

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

When

00:29:09--> 00:29:12

he created the world,

00:29:13--> 00:29:14

asked,

00:29:15--> 00:29:16

asked all of us

00:29:17--> 00:29:20

to become Allah say to us, Am I not your Lord?

00:29:22--> 00:29:25

And what did we say? We said, Bala said, yes,

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

you are Lord. Today we have different loads.

00:29:39--> 00:29:40

There are those who are

00:29:46--> 00:29:47

those who are waiting

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

and those who are waiting, and don't change the intention in no way to defend this deed.

00:30:05--> 00:30:07

00:30:38--> 00:30:42

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

This is the opportunity which was given to you.

00:45:11--> 00:45:11

It's

00:45:13--> 00:45:14

pretty sweet.

00:45:19--> 00:45:25

And I will talk to the young people, young people, this is your life, this is your time.

00:45:30--> 00:45:32

There was a manager of a pencil factory

00:45:37--> 00:45:39

manager, pencil.

00:45:41--> 00:45:42

This is a story.

00:45:43--> 00:45:44

Not

00:45:48--> 00:45:57

so there was a big batch of pencils that was going to be sent off to the shops. And he went into the warehouse and he spoke to the pencils. It was a bit weird.

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

Yeah, it was been to the plants, to the dogs. To the kids. He was a pencil speaker

00:46:06--> 00:46:08

communicating with pens.

00:46:10--> 00:46:14

So he said to the painters, oh, new pencils, you're going out into the world.

00:46:18--> 00:46:22

Remember, when you go out into the world, make your mark wherever you go.

00:46:25--> 00:46:27

Make Your Mark as a Muslim, make your mark.

00:46:28--> 00:46:33

Young people, professional people, wherever you are in school. Make Your Mark in your school.

00:46:35--> 00:46:41

You're good at math. Make Your Mark in math as a Muslim let people know. My name is

00:46:43--> 00:46:45

Yeah, my name is it's a big thing today.

00:46:47--> 00:46:49

Very few people Muslims have Muslim names.

00:46:50--> 00:46:52

pianos don't give your children Muslim names anymore.

00:46:54--> 00:46:54

said

00:46:56--> 00:47:01

how sad it must be for a child to grow up and to say my name is

00:47:02--> 00:47:04

and is nowhere to be found.

00:47:05--> 00:47:07

In Islam such a name

00:47:12--> 00:47:14

will last you somebody gives the name Muhammad

00:47:16--> 00:47:16

the Prophet so

00:47:18--> 00:47:22

people come to me and say God gives us name I just turn around and walk away.

00:47:23--> 00:47:35

Why am I to do this? You give me a child that name don't invite me to the top now Don't ask me to give the name. I don't want to be responsible but other than that I am party to giving a child such a name.

00:47:41--> 00:47:42

Professor someone said

00:47:43--> 00:47:49

what are the best names again we leave the profit you see we go to name books, name books.

00:47:50--> 00:47:55

And we go to the internet. Prophet said the best things our tips are

00:47:56--> 00:48:02

the best things is the name in which the name is in or the name handys in

00:48:03--> 00:48:12

Mohammed Ahmed, Abdullah Abdul Rahman those are the names beloved names in the eyes of a mouse.

00:48:17--> 00:48:21

So this is just setting the pace that when you go out into the world, make your mark

00:48:25--> 00:48:26

number two

00:48:28--> 00:48:34

when you make a mistake, corrected 10 and pencil around think that Robin

00:48:35--> 00:48:38

robata mistake is correct your mistakes.

00:48:39--> 00:48:43

Don't do mistakes. Don't make excuses for your mistakes, no, move it, replace it.

00:48:45--> 00:48:49

And finally the most important thing that you must remember is at young people.

00:48:52--> 00:48:54

It is the inside of you that is the

00:48:56--> 00:48:56

that is you.

00:48:58--> 00:48:59

Not the outside.

00:49:01--> 00:49:02

If you remove

00:49:03--> 00:49:07

the pencil becomes a piece of wood inside

00:49:08--> 00:49:09

useless.

00:49:14--> 00:49:15

Can you display

00:49:20--> 00:49:21

in Allah Allah?

00:49:22--> 00:49:23

Allah Allah,

00:49:24--> 00:49:24

Allah,

00:49:25--> 00:49:26

Allah.

00:49:29--> 00:49:31

Allah doesn't know can what you look like

00:49:32--> 00:49:33

as a goofy job.

00:49:34--> 00:49:35

Jesse and

00:49:40--> 00:49:42

I used to wear this to honor this day of

00:49:45--> 00:49:46

Jim Carrey where

00:49:47--> 00:49:49

I live in South Africa will suit

00:49:50--> 00:49:51

by living in Arabia.

00:49:53--> 00:49:58

When I was living in Pakistan, I used to wear Shalwar Kameez basis.

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

Different shovel comes blue white

00:50:03--> 00:50:04

liquor shower comes

00:50:06--> 00:50:07

in Malaysia

00:50:09--> 00:50:12

in Egypt I went to South Africa

00:50:14--> 00:50:15

This is how we made

00:50:16--> 00:50:17

the profit

00:50:24--> 00:50:31

so the inside out doesn't look unless prophecies Allah looks at your deeds and Allah looks at your heart

00:50:33--> 00:50:38

how you use your deeds and your art to project an Islamic character

00:50:42--> 00:50:44

so May Allah so I'm gonna give inshallah that we

00:50:46--> 00:50:48

that we don't waste our time me I'ma talk mommy

00:50:52--> 00:50:56

00:50:57--> 00:51:03

00:51:04--> 00:51:15

how many a hadith the Prophet day Have you memorized? Okay, in the Quran, that sounds something different people a lot of people have memorized you've also made me think that person that we make

00:51:17--> 00:51:18

comes off

00:51:21--> 00:51:22

we

00:51:23--> 00:51:24

just don't do it.

00:51:26--> 00:51:33

profit you love so much? How many things have you memorized? How many? How many ask yourself how many

00:51:35--> 00:51:37

00:51:45--> 00:51:47

00:51:56--> 00:51:58

00:52:02--> 00:52:08

imagine you will come into genuine inshallah all of us then we meet in Ibiza Salah Elisa to Salah

00:52:12--> 00:52:12

Prophet asked you

00:52:14--> 00:52:17

how many did you memorize in the dunya? I

00:52:23--> 00:52:27

mean, I didn't live in a country when I speak Arabic How can you expect me?

00:52:32--> 00:52:39

So use the time that we have in pursuit of that which will benefit us.

00:52:41--> 00:52:54

People always talk about you know, the old school. I'm not gonna say what I said previously. But it was talked about my father did this. My grandfather did this. My mother taught me this.

00:52:55--> 00:53:03

Now we must change that. He said we must say when my child says my son told me this you ask him what is his quota having said

00:53:07--> 00:53:08

that is the legacy which you leave behind.

00:53:11--> 00:53:13

To teach your children to

00:53:15--> 00:53:15

teach him to read.

00:53:17--> 00:53:19

That's your legacy that you leave behind

00:53:23--> 00:53:26

this even before you can speak with him said

00:53:28--> 00:53:28

no problem.

00:53:30--> 00:53:31

How many of you have talked to children

00:53:33--> 00:53:38

or grandchildren? You said to them in a school setting the traffic for two hours.

00:53:41--> 00:53:41

Teach them

00:53:44--> 00:53:45

teach them the Hadith which Allah

00:53:47--> 00:53:48

This is life.

00:53:49--> 00:53:58

This is what what what this is what it's about to be a Muslim to live in a heritage. He's ready for the cobwebs in our community in our society.

00:54:00--> 00:54:02

All the things that distract us from this Deen

00:54:05--> 00:54:07

get back into the core. Get back into the sun.

00:54:09--> 00:54:10

Show your love

00:54:13--> 00:54:17

Allah Allah Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
