But what does it mean by this? They believe in the oneness of Allah.
Because the one who believes in the oneness of Allah, the One who believes until he, then he will be sincere in his actions.
Otherwise, if a person is trying to please everyone, then he will not have sincerity in his actions. He will be doing the greatest good deeds, why, only to earn the praise of people. So the one who believes in Allah, who knows that his Lord is Busey even if people are not seeing, so he's okay, doing behind the scenes work as well. Such a person is the one who deserves to be the guardian, the caretaker of the Baitullah.
So first of all, the one who believes in Allah, secondly, we'll do we'll have it and also the nasty because the one who believes in the last day the Hereafter, where will he expect reward?

That he himself also establishes the center, because when a person establishes the center, then he will make sure that Salah is established in the masjid. You understand? Why is the masjid built for the worship of Allah? And for us? What's the main worship that we have to do in the masjid? Salah. If a person does not even care about Torah himself, would he care about establishing it in the masjid? No, he will not.

When I'm yaksha in the law, and he does not fear any except Allah.
While I'm yaksha does not fear Illa Allah except Allah yaksha is from the ruthless caution. Yes, yet. What's the word? Harsha. And Harsha is what kind of here
it is such fear that is because of the greatness of the other.
And it's such fear that is based on knowledge that a person is aware, he is knowledgeable of the greatness the magnitude the power of the other end because of that power, he's fearful of him.
You understand? So while I'm yaksha illallah he does not fear any except Allah.
He does not fear any except Allah. He realizes the greatness of Allah and he realizes his smallness and the smallness of others. So along with Eman and rabada There is also humidity There is also fear of Allah
fossa. So it is hoped Allah acre that those people which people those who have these characteristics man, Mr. Villa, he will do me a favor akarma salado advocate while ameesha Illallah such people it is hoped that an akuna minal 13, that they will be of those who are rightly guided
move that is one who is in receipt of guidance. One who has accepted the guidance, one who is on the right guidance. One who is being rightly guided because guidance is offered to many
But everybody does not accept it isn't it's all the Quran is there for everybody, but how many accepted and even after accepting it, how many people practice it? How many people implement it.
So people who have these characteristics, it is hoped that such will be rightly guided. Why? Because they're at the masjid.
And whatever activities they will do in the masjid.
They're of guidance because they have a man. They're establishing the slather giving this guy and they're promoting only the fear of Allah. So this will increase them in their hedaya
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, it is the people of Allah. It is the people of Allah, Who populate their society. So who are the people of Allah, those people who believe in Him, those people who fear Him, those people who worship Him, those people who out of his fear also give the rights of people.
All of these characteristics are combined. Similarly, there's a hadith that is reported in Timothy the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, either a tomb or Judah year a third mesquida fresh hair doula who will imagine that when you see someone coming to the masjid, habitually, regularly, then testify to his email.
When a person visits the masjid regularly, regularly,
not just once in a while. It's not just Fridays, for do masala only regularly every day, he visits the masjid then what does it show that this person has even
then testified to his email.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam also said that seven people will be shaded by Allah under his shade on the day, when there will be no shade but his yo mala lilla
on that day alone will shade seven people under his shade. And amongst them is who a man whose heart is attached to the masjid. A man whose heart is attached to the masjid
and such a person will be under the shade of Allah, on the day of judgment.
In other narration, this is attributed to the companions It is said that the massage it's there the houses of Allah on the earth.
What are the massage the houses of Allah on the earth and it is a promise from Allah, that he is generous to those who visit him in the massage in his house can understand those who visit him It is Allah promised that he will be generous to them.
So far sir, and your kuno mean and
they will get guidance. And amongst all the characteristics that are mentioned over here of those who deserve to be the populations of the masjid, the caretakers of the masjid. One characteristic is that they don't fear any except Allah.
And remember this word that is used for fear of Russia. It's fear that is based on knowledge. So the one who fears Allah with knowledge is worthy of populating the masjid. And again, remember, populating the masjid does not just mean going to the mosque to pray over there. populating the masjid means taking care of the masjid. Looking after the masjid
being one of the supervisors or being one of the you can say the Imam or the person who is in charge of managing the let's say, the finances or all of the issues with regards to the masjid? who deserves to get that title who deserves to get that position? Someone who has fear of a lot with knowledge.
Why is this condition so important? Because when a person fears of law and when a person is knowledgeable of Allah, then he will do his work with honesty.
Then he will do his work out with honesty and dedication.
He will not be fearful of people okay, what will people say if they find out that I'm doing this? Even if people don't find out, he knows that his Lord is watching him. Therefore, he will do his work with all honesty. Many times what happens we do our work because we know that other people will come and check
and when they will come and check they will question us. So what will we have to say? But why does this person do his work? Because he fears a lot. He knows that even if other people are watching me, my Rob is watching me. And he doesn't just have fear of Allah He has respect for Allah. And because of that he will do his work with all honesty. You know sometimes, if we're volunteering at the masjid at the Institute, sometimes
Given the job, for instance, just putting the shoes straight or on the shelves or in a line outside the washroom, a person might think, who cares? You know, I've been given this duty but who cares? This person is gonna come check on me, but who cares? Or maybe she won't even come and check on me. But a person who really fears Allah, He will treat those shoes, he will put them away, just the way he puts them away in his house, just like he doesn't like a mess in his house right at the door. Similarly, he doesn't even like a mess at the door of the masjid.
Why it's the fear of Allah. And this can be applied at serving the machine at any level, populating the machine at any level, whether a person is at the top managing all of the affairs or he is leading the people with regards to one aspect or he is working over there or he is even coming to worship Allah soprano died over there. Because many times people go and worship or light the masjid. But they leave after having caused harm to the masjid.
Many times it happens. Sometimes our own children, they come and stain the carpet.
Or perhaps they will dirty the floor perhaps they will put a mark on the wall. Perhaps they will do something to the shutters of the masjid. But sometimes we don't care. What is unless it's those who are fearful of Allah who deserve to come and populate the masjid. Only such people because they will work with honesty and they will work with dedication.
They will dedicatedly do their work.
Similarly, this is important why? Because such a person will not care about what other people say what other people demand. What will he ensure that what Allah has obligated that is done in the masjid and what Allah dislikes what Allah is displeased with, that is not done in the machine.
Because many times out of the fear of people, wrong things are done in the machine.
wrong things are done in the masjid. For example, sometimes I witnessed this myself that once I visited the masjid, to pray Salah over there, and there was a hall which had been rented for a wedding. And believe me, there was music playing over there.
I was shocked, shocked that where is the management of the machine? What is their responsibility just to rent the hall, get the money and pay for the bills, or pay the people who are working for the militia. That's it. Their job is to make sure whatever is done in the masjid is what Allah approves of. And whatever a lot does not like whatever Allah does not allow is not done in the masjid, who can implement this the one of yours people know the one who fears
the one who fears Allah only he can implement this. Similarly, this characteristic is also important because such a person only will give his time to serve the masjid.
Many times what happens when a person says okay, I'm going to go work for the dean, I'm going to go work in that particular machine. Teach over there to children over there. They're discouraged. Look, you've done this degree you've done that degree you could be working here you could be working there you could make so much money. Within a few years you could own a house, you know you could travel so much here and there.
So when a person decides to serve the masjid to populate the masjid regularly, even if it's coming to praise Allah five times a day in the masjid, people discouraging people discourage them a lot. But a person who fears Allah, a person who has knowledge of Allah, He will not care about what people say to him.
He will not care about how people criticize him, because his goal is the pleasure of Allah.
And when he fears Allah in the masjid, he will promote that fear as well. He will welcome people he will not chase them away with his bad luck, he will welcome them because he fears he realizes his smallness and the greatness of Allah. Such people are worthy of populating the masjid. Such people are worthy of being the maintainers of the masjid. And we have to check ourselves. We have to analyze ourselves over here. These characteristics are extremely important. If we want to play any role in looking after the master
in being someone who tends to watch it regularly, and all of us are coming regularly to the masjid everyday Alhamdulillah we pray in the masjid. So we have to ensure that these characteristics are built within us. Because if we don't have these characteristics, then we're not worthy of it. And when a person is not worthy of something sooner or later it is taken away from him
sooner or later.
Or Jonathan Have you may see quiet Alhaji the providing of water for the pilgrims were a mountain mosquito halloumi and the maintenance of the mosquito How long have you been
This action equal to come in Amman Avila he will Yeoman. If you watch if he's a billionaire, have you made this action equal to the deeds of the one who believes in Allah and the Last Day and strives in the cause of Allah? You think these two actions are the same? They're not the same. Then why do you think that these wish seeking just because they maintain and look after the masjid, they should be allowed to stay here? They should not be they don't deserve to be here? Because they don't believe in Allah. They don't believe in the messenger. They don't do jihad in the way of Allah.
A Geraldo Have you made over here is different interrogation.
And it's for the purpose of there'll be reproach, that you must not do this, you must not think like this. That Have you made supplier, the supplier is from the roof better seen? Have you seen coffea
and sakarya is to give water to drink? What does it mean, to give water to drink to irrigate to water.
Now the word supply is used for the place where water is given to people to drink. And it's also used for the vessel for the vessel, the container, the cup, the glass, the jug, whatever it is.
So for example, many years ago, in the heroin, there was a particular place where you could go and drink something, you could go downstairs, you could take the steps down, and you could drink some time over there now it's closed.
So that place is what a place where you go and drink water from that place is what says,
Okay, now what do they have?
Big containers from coolers from where you can take the water? Right? So that is also a sakarya. Why it's a vessel. Similarly, it also applies to the cup. Okay, Cisco also applies to the cup. So basically anything through which you offer water to someone, you give water to drink to someone. You have facilitated drinking for them.
So a journalism supply at the hedge.
It's not hedge What is it a hedge? What does hedge mean?
The pilgrim one who performs hedge
you may have heard some people, you know they have this name Hajj at the end or Haji? Right. So what does it mean the one who performs Hajj
the word Hajj is a singular word but it's also used for plural. So Sukhoi et al Hajj,
giving water to drink to, to the pilgrims,
giving water to drink to to the pilgrims. So have you made Have you considered giving water to drink to the pilgrims
and remount hotel restaurant populating or maintaining the sacred mosque? These two actions? You think that they are like gunman like the actions of the one who am an umbrella he will Yeoman The one who believes in Allah and the Last Day? What jahad ifisa be the law and he also strives in the way of Allah, you think they're equal?
Do you think they're equal? A person with disbelief a person with coffin or a person even with all that he is doing is only offering water to drink to the pilgrims. Or he's only there to look after the masjid. He doesn't care about his Salah he doesn't care about his look at he doesn't care about jihad, nothing like that. On the other hand, is a person who believes in Allah the last day and he also does jihad in the way of Allah.
Who's better in your eyes? You think it's the one who is giving water to drink to the pilgrims? No. Les is the winner in the law. They are not equal in the eyes of Allah. They're not the same. They're not the same. Why do we generally get impressed by the one who is offering water to the pilgrims? Because it's an action that is apparent that is visible. Everyone can see it, isn't it? And generally when people are doing something like this, people praise them a lot.
It's an action that brings a lot of praise to the person who's doing it. Or look at them. They're spending so much time or look they're feeding the needy. They're feeding the thirsty. Such a generous good deed they're doing. So generous they are. Look how hard working there. So it's a visible action. It's a visible deed and people get very impressed by it.
On the other hand, a person who is serving the deen in the sense that he is struggling to learn. He is struggling to teach hours and hours you spending alone to study to learn.
and hours and hours is spending to teach hardly anyone may see his action. Perhaps
The only, you know, see the person going through the class and coming back. But they don't see the time that that person is spending to learn the lesson.
Perhaps they don't see the time that that person is spending the hours and hours he's spending, the amount of effort that he's putting in. And perhaps according to them has that benefit is only to himself, and the person who's giving water he's benefiting so many people. You know, many people when they start learning the Quran, what are they told, you should go help the poor needy, you should go and serve the poor. But the fact is that yes, that action is also very important. But you think this action is equal to the one who is doing jihad in the way of Allah in the sight of Allah, they're not equal, who is better, the one who is doing jihad in the way of Allah that is much
better, because this person is more sincere
and eventually his action his striving will be more productive will be more fruitful.
Well, now who lay I did como el amin, and Allah does not guide the wrongdoing, people.
Even our best holding on who he said that this ayah was revealed about our best even our been looked at it, Who was he?
the uncle of the prophet SAW the same uncle, who was caught as a prisoner when
at the Battle of blood.
So he said this, I was revealed about him. Because when he was captured in the Battle of bed, he said, If you rushed before us to embrace Islam,
to perform hegira and Jihad meeting before us, you became Muslim. You did hijra, you did you had, then we were maintaining masjidul head on providing water for the pilgrims and setting the indebted free that okay, you were struggling in your own way to serve the deen. But we were doing something much better than you What? We were giving water to the pilgrims. And we were setting the indebted free people who would come with debts, we would help them pay off their debts. We were doing a lot of charitable social welfare work. But what does Allah say what is better?
What is better jihad in the way of Allah? Because again, apparent deeds are liked by everyone, because people get impressed by them. And the machine, especially our bass, the uncle of the prophets are about a sudden, he would offer water to the pilgrims. And he had a specific place in the harem, which was known as seafire, tiller bass.
It was the official office from where they would give water to the pilgrims, it was known as the pirate or bass. And he wouldn't just give water to drink. But he would add raisins to it as well. It's like, you know, Sweden water, and it has a very cooling effect. You may wonder who can water is water? What's the big deal? But remember, you're in the middle of the desert. Okay. And if somebody is offering water to someone, it's a big deal.
For you, it's perhaps not a big deal at all. Just go to the water hose get a glass of water. That's it, sir. For them, it was difficult. Because you don't find water in water bottles over there just during the tap on and find water. No, you have to put in a lot of effort. And not just plain water, they would add in raisins to that water. And then they would give that to the pilgrims for free.
It wasn't apparently visible. The people that very impressed by
seminary there's another tradition which has mentioned that a normal human machine. This is reported and Muslim that a normal human machine he said that a man said I do not care if I do not perform an action after embracing Islam, other than providing drinking water for pilgrims.
After becoming Muslim, I don't care if I don't do anything. As long as I do this one action that I give water to, to the pilgrims. It's such a righteous action in my eyes.
Another man said I do not care if I do not perform an action after embracing Islam. Other than maintaining the muscle how long that I go and clean the masjid. I look after the masjid. This is the best action in my eyes. A third man said jihad in the cause of Allah is more righteous than what you have said.
Jihad and the cause of Allah is more righteous are modeled on him. He heard
he heard them all. And he admonished them. He said do not raise your voices next to the member of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam because these people, they were in the mustard. So he said Don't raise your voices and have this discussion where by the member of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And since it was a Friday, he said, but after we pray the Friday prayer, then we will go to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and ask him then we will ask him Okay, which deed is better? So this ayah was revealed that as your outcomes are higher than Hajji wear him out of the machine halloumi command M and Avila he will do mill acid, which are the fees of beating nyasa they're not
equal in the eyes of Allah.
So, we see that duties are mentioned over here on one side is being very charitable doing a lot of welfare work and on the other side is serving the dean.
You understand? One is to serve the creation and the other is to serve the
the deen of Allah.
Both are important. Both have a lot of importance in our at both of them. However, what is better in the eyes of Allah?
What is better in the eyes of Allah serving the deen? Why? Why is that better?
Why is it better? How is it better? If you give water to drink to a thirsty person that will quench his thirst for that time. Tomorrow he will be thirsty again.
If he doesn't believe in Allah, if he doesn't have hope in Allah, if he doesn't know how to suffer, if he doesn't know how to make the law, how will he deal with his thirst tomorrow? How he will not be able to.
If you spend your time teaching people, educating people, telling them about the deen teaching them the love of Allah, inspiring in them the love of Allah inculcating it in their hearts, the love of Allah, then whatever hardship they will go through, they will be able to bear it. At least their data will be saved. When you give a person one sip of water to drink, it's only going to benefit them in the dunya. But if you give them a sip of the Quran, because the water he is also like rain, it's also like water. If you give that to them, then it will not just benefit their body, it will largest benefit them in their dunya but it will also benefit them in the hereafter. This is why do
you have in the way of Allah serving the deen of Allah is much better in the eyes of Allah soprano.
Near Allah subhanaw taala it's much greater.
It's much better. Generally we get very impressed by all of that social work. I'm not belittling that action. It's very important. It's it holds a lot of importance in our day, but we must put things where they belong.
When you are giving water to drink to thirsty people, you will only be able to benefit the people who are before you. You give them water, will they be able to pass that water on to someone else? No. They will drink it because they're thirsty. But when you're telling somebody about the deen they will benefit themselves and as a result they will also benefit other people. The goodness of the multiplied it will be increased many times more. In our Deen it's not just focusing on you know being charitable or being generous or doing welfare work or only focusing on teaching within and serving that they both have to be combined, which is I both have value in our Deen however when it
comes to comparing the two then what is more valuable. Serving the deen of Allah jihad in the way of Allah is much better
because its result is much more.
In Surah Nisa I number 95. What do we learn that lasta will carry do me Nina zero literary while Mujahidin a feasibility may be unwilling or unforeseen,
not equal are those believers who remain at home other than the disabled, and who and the Mujahideen who strive in the way of Allah with their wealth and their lives.
They're not equal. How that Allah has preferred the Mujahideen over who, over those who stay at home.
Those people who leave their homes to spread the deen of Allah, they're much more valuable before a loss of penalty compared to who, those who stay at home, only helping the poor and needy. Again, both actions are important. But again, as we see in this ayah that football Allahu Mujahideen idol caridina Adriana Lima
and in the same way has been said what Colin white alone has done to all believers, Allah has promised a good reward. However, those who strive for them there is extra reward.
Now, when people when they learn the Quran, you know, they wonder as to how are we going to benefit people? How are we going to benefit the humanity? Everyone thinks of ways to benefit people.
Now, you also must think of what you're going to do, once you have learned
because it doesn't suit the person that he has learned to put on and he puts it away and he moves on to something else and he leaves a coat on behind him. No, this is a part of your life now until you die. This is a part of your life, you cannot leave it. So you have to take this goodness that you have received and take it to other people. You have to give it to other people. You have to pass it on to others.
So how will you do that? There are different ways. But remember any way that you adopt, never forget that you also have to teach the people that
you also have to serve the needs of the people. Which is why we see that, for instance, in Pakistan, when there was the earthquake, and the floods and all of these things when the camps were there, and from a loader Hunter, a lot of aid was going along with all the physical aid that was going to help people. There were also classes that were arranged for people to learn about 3d, because you can give them food, but if you don't teach them if you don't educate them, how will they help themselves? How will they help themselves, and this is not the role of just one person. It's the duty of every single one of us, whatever way we adopt, we have to make sure that we are also serving
them at the same time.
And Medina amanu, those people who believe what had euro and they also migrated wotja hadoo, feasable in there, and they also did jihad in the way of Allah, how did they do jihad be unwilling him what unfussy him with their wealth and also their selves, again, they spend their own money, and they also spend their own time. Such people are our alemu, Roger Turner in the law, they are greater in rank in the sight of Allah, their rank is much greater in the sight of Allah, Allah ecohome welfare his own, and it is those who are the successful, they are the successful ones. In total and failed, we learned about how to be successful. And in this soda also we are taught how to be
successful. What is the key to success for a believer? What is it that makes them successful?
What do we learn? What's the main thing? Imagine? Yes, everything but along with that, serving the Digi hide in the way of Allah, that is essential. Because that proves that a person has taken the deen seriously.
He has taken the dean seriously. He takes ownership of it. He's proud of it.
You understand? And something that you're not really proud about something that you don't take ownership of, you don't care much about it. Something that you really like something that has entered your heart, you make sure you pass it on to others. So the same method has mentioned again, that the most virtuous act in the sight of Allah is what the man, Pedro and then jihad, because for such people, their ranks are very high.
But what I really learned the narrative that a man came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he asked, instruct me, as to such a deed, that equals jihad, meaning Tell me about a deed that is equal to jihad in the way of Allah, in terms of reward. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I do not find such a date, I do not find such a deed there is no action that is equal in reward to jihad. Because imagine if it is better than even welfare work, if it is better than even giving water to those people who have come to worship Allah,
then which action would be better than that? Similarly, if the lemon mustard, he said that I asked the Prophet salallahu salam, O Allah, messenger, what is the best deed? What is the best deed? He replied, to offer prayers at their stated fixed times? So I asked, What is the next and goodness? He said, to be dutiful, towards your parents? I said, What is next and goodness to that? So he replied to participate in jihad in the way vamos parameter.
So the one who does jihad, his level is much higher, much higher in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala.
And what's that reward that a loss of penalty will give them? What is that high rank that you buy? shirahama boom, the rocky mountain man who? He gives them good news, who gives them good news? What boom, their Lord gives them good news. A loss of penalty that gives them good news to those people who strive in the way of Allah with their wealth and their lives.
What does it give them good news of Virata men who have mercy from him, What does mercy mean? mercy in dunya and mercy and
mercy Indonesia, of the manifestations of Allah's mercy, Indonesia is what?
they'll feel that a person has mercy in his heart for others as well.
That it has been filled up and the one in the heavens, he will have mercy on you.
And Rama in the Hereafter is Jenna. Because Allah subhanaw taala said to Jenna and T are hemmati so Allah gives them good news of Rama from him specially from him.
And the fact that Allah said min Who? What does it show? What does it show that Rama exclusively from him and it shows the enormity, the greatness the magnitude of this mercy.
You understand, like, for example, mcphatter minga
that fulfill Li muffuletta min Indic that Forgive me with forgiveness that is from you from you, meaning it's going to be the greatest forgiveness. What is one and also pleasure? And this is a loss of planet artists pleasure that will be bestowed upon those who have energen
What does it mean by this pleasure, that Allah will be pleased with that person? Allah will appreciate his efforts. Allah will accept his efforts. You know, people wonder all the time, all of this that I'm doing for the sake of Allah, how do I know it's going to be acceptable or not? What if it's not accepted? What if it's not appreciated? People want their work to be appreciated? What does Allah say? Their work will be appreciated by Allah. Anything that you suffer in the way of a lot service Deen.
Allah will appreciate that what you're netting and gardens loan fee her Nariman will be for them in their meaning in general are nurserymen blessings. What kind of lessons are their movie everlasting eternal movie was from the roof fetters of Well, me amaku, which means to stamp. And morpheme means one who lasts one who abides The word morpheme is also used for a permanent resident.

So now even more fame, the blessings of general will be in general for eternity, staying there, never going away, never ending, never going to be taken away from them. Everything that you have in this dunya eventually what happens to it?

Indeed Allah he has with him a great reward. And you want to settle for this dunya

And people think oh, you've done so much good work so much welfare work, that's what you want to settle for. Allah has a great reward with him. Strive for the better. So that you may get that strive for that reward, so that you may get a share in that

sound like, we were just sharing how everyone wants to be the person on stage doing the main act, and you want to be the person who has the mic and who's the one, you know, running the whole show and everything. But you would never want to be the guy like was actually attaching your mic so you can speak, because nobody can see that person, right? We always want the credit that's apparent. And we should really check ourselves that when we do something, is it because people can notice and appreciate? Or is it because like, that's one of those watching.
One thing what touched my heart is the religion. And what is your true religion, I was thinking that how believers they really proved their love for Allah subhanaw taala. Because I was just connecting today's lesson to yesterday as well that how Allah subhanaw taala said that he will heal your heart, and He will punish them through your hands. Like just being a mom, some time, I feel like that when we need to be wise, we want to teach our kids the best area. Sometimes we teach one sub Okay, if your other siblings get back to you, you'll be patient. Sometimes we feel like that if we keep on telling one child, B sub v sub The other is going to take advantage. So one day we say okay, no, he
did bad to you. It's your turn. Now, he should learn a lesson. So just being a mother, even we use different protectors. And being a human, we do make mistakes. But unless one of those are highly, he knows our psychology that are believers. Sometimes they say they need to learn the subject. But sometimes I really want to give them a candy as well. Otherwise, maybe they will get 10 or so the moments are at our beacon Look how Allah subhanaw taala is taking the human rights. This is the deal woman right that they did back to you now you are the only one who deserve to be with you.
So I can I just want to say about who's worthy of running the masjid. I was thinking about how a lot of times people complain about the people that are in charge of the Muslims near their house. And I think instead of complaining, we should step up, and we should learn. And then we should take leadership roles within our messages instead of complaining and talking bad about the people. And also along that point, within our families. Also, if we see something wrong, and we don't stop it, then it's the same thing as somebody who's leading a ministry and doesn't stop it. Because they want to, they want to please the people. So we should take leadership roles within our own families as
Finally, we're just talking about like Jihad and how we usually think about like, doing all this terrible stuff, not that it's bad in all it's good. But then jihad is something that as almost like I said is better than in his eyes than what the terrible stuff is. And sadaqa sadaqa sadaqa jariya.
almost one third of the Quran is about to be completed 100 Allah. So if still we are lacking somewhere in any kind of commandment, it's time that mikania to bring him on on it. And if you are on your batteries, you think you are not doing that thing correct. From your bad thing towards the correct one, and yada and then stay firm on it. Because we know the exact definition of jihad, continuous effort, can you achieve your goal?
cycle? I was just thinking about the uncle of the promise of Islam and how he was so confident in what he did. And he just thought, you know, he was like, Yeah, I serve water to the pilgrims and stuff. And while on the other hand companions of the Prophet of Islam and the prophet of Islam, they did so much and they still weren't satisfied with what they did. And they still thought of themselves as not deserving of Jenna. And that's one of the qualities of a believer that he's never satisfied with what he does, and he keeps calling. Because sometimes when we're doing apparent deeds, and people are praising us, we think what we're doing is enough, and it's very good. But as
long as people are praising us, we're getting acknowledged
Good we're doing and that only happens when you're doing the work that can be seen by everybody and when it's behind the scenes work when people don't see it, then you know that you haven't done enough and you want to do more and more
