Bismillah he was Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were bad. If there's one word that can aptly define the crisis that has plagued the Ummah on a global level Muslim and non Muslim, is the absence of the word burqa. Of course as Muslims we identify with the term, but unfortunately many of us we lack it simply because we have not adopted the correct measure so that we can have Baraka in our life. So we lack Baraka in our time the week is gone by the month is just gone by the year is just gone by things are moving so quickly and rapidly. What did the order bow and say, I don't know salco but delta who a deca or hummus, Alberto Goku, but delta who a deca Wow.

00:01:04--> 00:01:26

You seen the year change? I seen humans change throughout the year. You seen the year change? I seen humans change throughout the year. So the time has just gone by? Right so we like the burqa in that. Then we like burka in our sleep, you get up tired, you get up tired. And we let Baraka in our money. We like Baraka in our money, what they say

00:01:27--> 00:01:53

there's too much month left at the end of our money. There's too much money, like like like there's still two weeks of the month left and the funds are exhausted, the salary is depleted. And while there's still 15 days of the month to go. So that's the reality what is what I got almanor theory Cathy law bs Bible kalila maximum output maximum benefit from minimum provisions minimum provisions.

00:01:55--> 00:02:41

One of the many reasons why the pious had Baraka in their time, in my humble opinion, that I often say in my dogs is that they spent minimum time in necessity. So meal was simple, whatever was available, just Let's eat it. And that is why Ibrahim bin addingham Rahim Allah who was known as senior Zohan, one of the great saints of the time, abou is haka Domini was his name. He said, I spent some time with the scholars of Lebanon in a mountain. And they said to me, either Roger Taylor and Neil ballad. When you go back to the city life, then tell people and tell your friends. And when you look through UCLA law donita atleta the one who indulges in food all the time will be deprived

00:02:41--> 00:03:27

of, of sweetness of worship. When you look through Noma, Lucha de Doonan Amiri Baraka and a person who sleeps for extended time pro long time, he will not find Baraka in his life. Sleep is an Atma from Allah Allah speaks about this in the Quran in the 21st Jews amin I can be layli wanna hurry Baba de la comin Felipe and amongst the signs of Allah, Allah Allah cuatro de which reflect His greatness and his magnanimity is he gave you sleep, and absolutely a good sleep a deep sleep a sound sleep is so refreshing, so rejuvenating, and then Allah says it's also his bounty that you go and search and earn your sustenance. So the scholars of the sea light that both of these two are great

00:03:27--> 00:04:14

and noble LA Unified command, they do not contradict nobility beat sleep or beat earning, it doesn't go against the grain of piety and caring for your corner monaci and nilkamal How can you go against nobility when Allah has mentioned it as his favor? However, that very sleep and that very earning becomes problematic when you overdo it? We're in nama Yoon, ha and in Hema Kofi Ha. when there isn't moderation or discipline, then it becomes a problem. And he also said to Ibrahim they also said to Ibrahim Abraham, and the manuk Pharaoh kalama la hora de Mina dunya, this Salama that say to your friends, that the person who speaks excessively who speaks excessively, it's highly unlikely it's

00:04:14--> 00:04:29

highly unlikely for such a person to leave this world untainted, he will be tainted he will be implicated. His slate will have blemishes and blotches on it. Why? Because men cateura lavet. Mankato,

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

Colombo, the one who speaks a lot cateura Mankato, lavato, COSATU, if you speak a lot all the time, you're going to hurt a feeling you're going to offend someone, there's going to be a vulgar word, there's going to be a lie. There's going to be a gossip that that's the reality. Why because you're not weighing your words you're not. You're not analyzing your words. So the pioneers had Baraka in their life. But coupled with that, notwithstanding how much Baraka they had, there was yet another amazing thing and that's what I want to briefly touch on.

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

That they maximize their time. Someone said, in the English language, our lives are like identical suitcases. Our lives are like identical suitcases is just that some people can pack more in it compared to others. Wow. So you drive into same cars, you have the same trunk. Some people have an art of packing the same size bag, some people can pack very economically, they get more in it. And that's the reality that the pie is they packed more into their life. So one of the things that the pie is used to do and that's the message I want to convey is that while they were engaged in something, they would exploit that moment that capital word that the tongue would be in the

00:05:43--> 00:05:59

remembrance of Allah. So that act of virtue would now have a double virtue and if it was a material act, that they were engaged in something permissible and lawful, would now become spiritual. So there is innovation in higher to Sahaba on the strength of they've been Aslam that he says that once

00:06:01--> 00:06:45

the Allahu anhu was patrolling the streets of Medina for our misbehaved fee baiting. He observed that there was a Lenten burning in a particular house for dynamin ha, he came close for either I do that through Pooja Miranda, only to discover it was an old woman and elderly woman in the late hours of the night. She was guarding her womb she was spun in her womb. She was doing her work, that is what she would regularly do. And she was doing it but the light was burning. So Satan armor the alarm to realize that someone was awake. And while she's guarding her will, she was singing along the praises of the messenger sallallahu wasallam in a very emotional and a very, very melodious and

00:06:45--> 00:06:46

beautiful way.

00:06:47--> 00:06:50

So she said Allah Mohammed Salah,

00:06:51--> 00:06:57

Salah la Mustafa, er, taco Wham and Becky

00:06:58--> 00:06:59

atashi rd.

00:07:01--> 00:07:46

Otto ltg, Moroni wa Habibi Adar. Imagine this normative nahata is patrolling. Right? A light is burning, and lanten is burning armor comes close. today. If you get up for the call of nature and a light is on at home, you dread to get into that room, because you might see what you dread. Right? Allah forbid, in an average situation. Commonly speaking you get in a son is either watching something unsavory, or this earphones and there's something else happening. Rarely would you be in those homes that have the privilege of seeing the light on only to find your son in prayer, crying to Allah, which was the condition of rubbish bin Hussein. Bin Hussein, what did

00:07:47--> 00:08:15

you say to Robin Hood, a low rocker Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? hubback Oh Robbie, I seen the Prophet of Allah. And I seen you. He was a tabula rasa. He did not see the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And Abdullah Sproat said, I promise, if the Prophet of Allah had to see you, he would have loved you. My Word, my word. Sometimes someone gets married in the family, and then we tell that son in law or daughter in law, or you know what,

00:08:16--> 00:08:52

if you had to see the data, or the grandfather of the grandma, she would have loved you, you would have loved her. You people have a common personality. And these are human expressions amongst ourselves. Can you imagine the testimony of Abdullah animus to him, and he's crying by night and his mom is asking you what makes you cry? Have you have you killed anyone? So she said, he says Yes, ma'am. I've killed someone. So his mom says Who have you killed? It says I've killed myself by sinning against Allah. Whoa, can you imagine this? So this woman is singing along so she's doing her mundane things she's spending and guarding her will but she makes it meaningful, rich valuable, by

00:08:52--> 00:09:28

praising the messenger sallallahu sallam, Allah Mohammed Salah abrar May the salutations of the pious descend upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Salam aleikum wa superphone and they are many the chosen selected beloved servants of Allah sent perpetual greetings upon you. Capricorn. Men Becky, har. How can I forget those moments of Medina where you would be up in the early hours crying and we would listen to you recite in poron then she tears and she says yeah later Sheree later

00:09:31--> 00:09:42

death had to come in separate us and I know only be of Allah you will have the loftiest abode in Jenna Allahumma filmography Allah that was the last words of the Prophet sallahu wa sallam the highest abode

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

ultra Jew Moroni wa Habibi Adar. Oh my Lord, I beg you, I beseech you, I implore you, I wish I hope I pray I dream that I can also be given a privilege to me

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

I need an opening to enter that lofty agenda where I could also be close to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They didn't Aslam says Amara does or the Allahu anhu. And he burst into tears. He sat and he cried and he sobbed until he gained his composure. When he gained his composure, he mustered the courage he knocked on the door. late hours of the night, man Alan BB who's to set the door. So the olana said it is irmo so she said, Well, Monday when the aroma mama Yeah, it be armor heavy hisar and whatever I do with Roman, I don't have any agreement or any meeting sheduled and Why would aromaticum at this hour, so remember the alarm and who was a crack in his voice and a tear in

00:10:48--> 00:11:29

his eye? He said if the halal Rafi McCullough opened the door, my sister, Sally, there is no harm upon you. There is no nothing to worry about. Just open may Allah be pleased with you. So she obliges, and she opens the door on murder. The Ilana respectfully sits at the door and it says the rue de la el Kalamata, Lottie nifa I asked you in the name of Allah, those profound couplets in which you are praising the messenger sallallahu Sallam Can you kindly repeat those couplets? So remember, this is my message, she's spending her world you could be driving to work, you could be doing something else at that time. Either great could be music in your ears, or you could just pass

00:11:29--> 00:11:56

the time heedless oblivious, or you could be listening to a lecture or you could be listening to the Quran. Or you could be glorifying the almighty or sending salutations on the messenger sallallahu wasallam. And that's what we need to do. And this is how the pie is optimized on the time. This is how they got maximum out of their time. So she recited the couplets again and she said Salam aleikum, WA Mustafa Al Azhar, taco Rahman, Becky, Har, la

00:11:58--> 00:12:51

ltg, Moroni, WA Habibi at dar Salam Omar said Bella, he I asked you as a lukey, and to the c li ne monokuma.

00:12:51--> 00:13:19
