In a company law, neither one is dying and when a stop few who wanted to go in they want to be in jewelry and Cuccinelli say, as Dr. Medina made yesterday, for the woman you feel
wash under Mohammed Abdullah, who was also for one day he was singing all praises for long we praise Him, we thanked him, we asked him for his help. And we asked the police to giveness We seek refuge with the lawful to Allah from the evil ourselves and the eve of our actions. Whoever is guided by law, they know when can we Skype them and whoever is misguided they know I can guide them except for lawful gyla I they witness it, there is no god worthy of worship except Allah. And I bear witness that so long as he was saying that it is fun Listen, Gemma, but first of all Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah cattle. I just want to take this opportunity to welcome all of you here today, you know,
come to life. It's truly a blessing to be amongst you all inshallah see your beautiful faces and hamdulillah May Allah raise you for and make you from those who are raised with the White and bright faces on your monthly ama due to the sincerity of your email inshallah.
Again, like I said, I apologize we haven't got the ignition going, we trying to work on that for you and I was hot to Panama.
But inshallah we asked the law that you feel The Sisterhood of being here with us today inshallah, on May Allah increase us, inshallah, amen. anointed Chavez in that. Okay, so the subjects I've chosen to speak about today is basically the blessing of seeking knowledge, and how to parallel thinking knowledge is truly you know, once you start on the path of seeking knowledge, how it brings much blessing into your life, and enriches your life in so many ways, if you don't realize that we go to many lessons we hear about, you know, the rewards in the era of seeking knowledge, but we don't hear much about how does seeking knowledge actually bring such plays into his life before the
next shot? Is what I wanted to concentrate more of my talk on today? And also, you know, how do we go about seeking knowledge? And how do we balance that with our life, you know, without without life of being a mother being a wife, you know, panel? It's not easy? No. Okay. So one of the reasons you know, that, I feel very passionate about talking about this subject, is because the power law,
we have to realize the role of women, the role of the mother, in how she can enhance this Oh, my like, if we ever hope to bring back that is to bring back the honor to the oma, we have to realize one of the greatest ways of bringing back that anger to the seminar is through the education of the women through the education, especially of the mother, because the cataloging system, the mother, she's in first madrasa. She is the first school subpoena law as one of the misshape he said, that the mother is the first member of sorry, she is sorry, half if she is righteous, then the offspring will be righteous sister, the main thing is the mother because you know, that in general, the
fathers are busy. You know, the data in general, especially in the life today, the way life goes, today. Our life is such in such a hurry, and so much going on in life. So it's apparent a lot that you find in general, there may not be theory, they work outside. So this is why who's left behind to raise this child and to instill in them the values and the morals of Islam and to implanting them that the Arpita and the correct Tobia, it's the mother. So we have to realize the role of the mother, you know, and as
he said, within a half of this oma women have half of this oma and they raised the other half. So this is why we see Subhanallah what is the power behind teaching women and educating women about their Deen in many ways, it could be even more important to educate the woman about the date than the Father. So Pamela, because she's the one who spends the majority of the time with the children. So this is why it's, you know, this is why I feel very passionate about this topic. And that's why under the law, I'm very, I feel very blessed to be involved with, you know, teaching young sisters or you know, even adults I teach mothers as well, and hamdulillah and you know, Mashallah we have
many different classes on in different places, teaching the Sisters of this office, you know, of the community, and this is the way forward for all my life. You see through history when women didn't have much knowledge of religion. You see the effect on that has a big effect on the men of the oma. But when women had knowledge when they had strong enough, like, go to look at like a shell wonder if I have a chance. I'll go for the stories. If you look at the mother of Sultan, Mohammed Al phatic, you know, surprised
Due to the, you know, the wisdom of his mother and the encouragement of his mother that he became, of course, after a lot, but one of the main factors of him becoming such a great leader was due to his mother. mm and Buhari, even, you know, a machete. If you look behind his stories, it's all got to do with a mother from the very beginning, she's the first madrasa for the for the, for the, you know, for the for the the mayor, this woman, this woman because she's writing obviously writing goals, you're raising the future mothers of this format as well. So this is why it's so important for the mother to be educated.
I guess that's in regards to the great effects on this former inshallah if we can educate the women of his alma. But besides that, okay, what are the blessings on you as an individual? Let's talk about that. Because, well, first of all, I'm going to come to that in a while. But first of all, let me say something here, a lot of sisters that complain about, you know, feeling boards, feeling like life is empty, they feel very unfulfilled, right. Um, and one of the other things we he, you know, a lot of women, they complain, you know, like, their husband does not spend enough time with him, he's always out there, he's always busy on the computer, like, you know,
and especially if you're single, you tend to feel even more bored. Or if you know, you don't have three children to keep you busy, if you force, but sometimes even children is to football, because it's just like that mundane, that mundane routine of life. They feel like there's something missing in your life. So Panama. So one of the biggest problems, one of the biggest, you know, you're one of the biggest problems of having too much time on your hands, is that having too much time on your hands, basically, it will, it will lead a person to fall into feet. Now, you're much more likely to fall into fitness, and to fall into sins, when you have too much time on your hands. So this is why
makes me so busy with seeking knowledge, you find you don't have much time to spend, you know, it takes away from like, yeah, you're focused on something you get to focus in life. You know, when you're going in life, you're focused on seeking knowledge. And it prevents you from falling into, you know, wasting time and, and getting into sin.
So we need to learn how to focus our time more wisely. This is the biggest problem with my sister's learning how to focus a time in a more beneficial way for their life. And the other thing you have to always always remember to do sisters is for the woman, and those of you who are like, if you've gone through your time raising your children, you'll know very well that a woman goes through a lot, I wouldn't go racing through a life cycle. So for example, when you're young, or coming into a start up, you single, you have a great deal of time on your hands, okay, you have a great deal of time on your hands, even when you first get married, you have a great deal in common your hands. But sad to
say the majority of sisters at this time, they wasted this precious time. And they don't make use of it to seek knowledge, or to learn how to read the Koran, or these things. You know, as that time goes, and they weren't there, before you know it, you've got a number of children, you've got a lot of men who don't have responsibilities. And you don't have much time for knowledge. It's harder, much harder for you to get out to go there since you know. But then what happens is well in its lifecycle is that basically, after that, you go over this kind of like a bump.
You know, the kids get older, they get me more independent, and you do start to get your time back again. So you can go back to seeking knowledge all over again in a more serious way. But I want to just mention something here, for anyone who's young guy who's still in that timeframe of having a lot of time in your head, this is the most precious time to seek knowledge, because what happens to a lot of systems is like, because they didn't start out making use of that time before marriage before heading on children. For example, learning how to recycle for honoring touch with these things, that what happens is like they end up with all the children. But now because they didn't
take that time to learn the brand. And they think they have to send their kids outside, they have to send them to other places to to educate their children, rather than being able to educate them themselves. And then suppiler sometimes, before you're even able to start to own a crime, this is 25. So very often what you find is you find like, some some systems, the power law is not to judge anyone, but I'm just explaining what so that you don't fall into this if you've got the chance to not fall into it. But you find that you know, a lot already 20 years has passed by and you know very little of the variance of your data. So this is why we can start early, if we're able to, but it's
never too late to start. I mean, no matter how old you are, like candy, that new page, listen today, let this be a positive start in your life. Don't get any more years of your life, you know, basically, you know, run away from you
You haven't failed this time taking beneficial knowledge. So no matter how old you are, you're never too old to start seeking knowledge. I remember when I was studying the Broncos handle on some cities with coming, they live in a 5060 parallel, they kept going going, like the fact that you've got that intention for the sake of a law, you get so much rewards and has an app, you know that from that from theory show up.
So basically, you know, this is why the prophets of Allah sent them, he advised us, you know, to take advantage of five before five, and one of those things is mean for all the mean. So they like to take advantage of your free time, before you get busy to take a look. Take advantage of your life, before you get to take advantage of your youth, before your old age, these are the times we need to take advantage of these are the precious times. Because you don't know what's coming after that. Like if you don't take advantage of this time, like you might feel you're busy now. But if you don't start doing something who's not making an effort to for example, go to court and listen, go to
[???]ty art classes at least once a week. Before you know it. Something happens you may want to take us all when you get older, you get sick things like this. And then you see a wishing or good girl it is less than wishing, wishing that nested partiton because koalas the opportunity pass by and you didn't take it when you had the opportunity. This is why we have to take it what was there before it runs away and it never comes back maybe we don't know. So Panama. And the other thing true sisters is
if we look at the majority of sisters said to say you look at what they know so much about so many things like they can tell you where to get the best visuals, they can tell you where the sales are on, they can tell you how to make all different types of dishes. Right? But when it comes to the basic things a big day like Tommy shift, you know, even like the rulings on the prayer, basic things, you find that have little knowledge of these things, very little knowledge but they might, you know, make a lot of mistakes in a prison they don't even realize like a lot of holes in the plan. The majority of people in this world he says Yala munafo he Romita Jr.
as he he,
he says explain the people of this world. They know gala Mona was hired to do all the things of the life of this world. Like they know the prices they know. You know, like the names of the the actresses and actors and seniors, and they know all of these things, what's going on in politics, what's going on all these things. But when it comes to the affairs of the era, you find that they have they're very heedless of these matters. And they have very little of these matters. And it's a sad reality upon a lot.
Because this is why we think it's very important for us to,
to dedicate at least part of our life towards seeking knowledge, at least part of our life. And we'll get on to talking about that.
So that we have that feeling of being enriched, we have that feeling of being fulfilled, because this is the reason why so many of us are feeling bored and feeling like, you know, like what is life and all these sort of feelings we have, because we're not, we're not having that enrichment in our life or thinking knowledge.
Okay, so from the virtues and benefits and blessings that seek knowledge brings into your life, once you take this step into it is basically like
the law, he said, there was nothing that brought me closer to a law asked for it than seeking knowledge. Like after fulfilling the compulsory duties, there was nothing that equals to a loss of hands other than seeking knowledge. Why, because the Panama through seeking knowledge, you start to really like to know about a law, you start to know about his beautiful names and attributes. Of course, the more you know about him, the Pentacles Of course, you can feel close to Allah and also to Panama, the goal is to acknowledge, the more I've picked up the doors, the higher the doors of, of goodness. So you start to find that other acts of worship you can do and there's so many things
that come through and even just being in an environment is taking knowledge, like it just it gets you in and strong, you know, you feel encouraged to want to do more to strive for your airfield. So basically what's leaking noise does, it gives you focus on striving for the airfield. This is one of the main things
from the benefits of seeking knowledge.
One of the greatest benefits of knowledge is the peace of heart you get the peace of mind you get through seeking knowledge. Because the Panama you find people who lack knowledge, they have so many doubts,
right and doubts. You know, you're gonna realize that a plan will always come to you through your weaknesses. So ignorance is a weakness. ignorance, ignorance is a weakness if your ignorance Believe me, shaitan we dare to use it against you put doubt in your heart,
law, doubts about his religion, and what law he says we cannot afford.
At this time, we really have ignorance. When we're constantly everyday being been bombarded by those from the enemy, the desire that one has had his land, put Islam down in our eyes, they try, they try their best to put down is that in our in our eyes to put down our beloved messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you understand and make us look down to Panama. So this is why it's imperative that each and every one of us to strengthen our resolve within ourselves and our families, we have to get this knowledge because your kids like everyone thinks both right now in the media, everywhere you go out in the streets, like you can be free to Muslim anymore, people come up attack you talk to
you, like I'm talking verbal attacks, normally, normally, it's verbal attacks, that your children feel that might come back to you with questions, they might start questioning that you shaky in a day. So it's very important for you as a mother to seek knowledge that you can, you know, suffice, they, you know, calm down their, their questions and make them understand the true wisdom. And even for yourself, you're gonna have those doubts in your heart, because that can sometimes shake you or that can sometimes shake you in yourself and you start to feel weak. So it's very important to, to seek knowledge for these things.
And the other thing also, obviously, too is, in general, what we find is people who don't have much knowledge, they tend to make the deen really hard for themselves. Like I know for a fact that many students who I've taught, when it first started come to listen, like make the probably that many people they, when you talk about I'm going to give, I'm going to give this to her, I'm going to teach, you know, purification, they say I know how to take already, I know how to take what they think is a simple matter. They don't realize it takes six months or something like that to study kohara thoroughly, at least six months, nine months, even it was more than six months, nine months,
I think we studied all of it. So the panel or so on. And what you find is people who haven't, you know, don't have much knowledge of their religion, they make the team really hard for themselves. Like, you'll find that repeated phrase over and over again, repeat, they will do over and over again, they got to the part they think, Oh, I can't take on board because maybe that adjuster will go on me if I go to the toilet on all of these things, I bet they make the de card for themselves. So this is one of the things that seek knowledge does it you know, because it gives you a handle on, you're worshiping a law on Buddha, you're worshiping a law on guidance. So you know that whatever
you're doing, you're basing it upon Benny, you're basing your evidence, and it gives you peace of mind.
So this is from the benefits of seeking knowledge.
And obviously, as well The other thing too is they'll all they always be those types of shapes on it, you know, shake on it is like psychology will always be there, like the tables for men clients will always be there to try to disguise as well and sometimes deviant sex come along. So if you haven't got a good grasp on your day, you haven't got a good grasp on your examinations, it's very easy to someone misguided to come along and just take you off the path of guidance. Like we see a lot of people today, you know, obviously, there is a need for English speakers. And definitely there's a need for English speakers. But sometimes the way that people quality English speakers is
like a pop star. And this can be very dangerous because if that person or that person is not they're not protected from falling the hell out here. They're not protected from find their own desires and opinions. So they can come out with something which is not even exhibited. It's not even from the authentic peninsula. And because it was following this person, like a pop star, they get they get they get deviated off the straight path. So we have to be aware of this, this was very important for us to come back to our foundations. I mean, the missing Java was so it was my he was better. He wants to drew a line in the sand. And then he drew lines coming off that sand and say this is the
straight path. And these paths. This is the path that leads to the hellfire. That's part of the straight path or the path path leading to the hill on each of these paths is a shape on cording to the Hellfire and so, basically what what life is like because I grew up going along struggling trying to say the straight path, but there will always be these like
us people to misguide others may or may not be amongst them, in order to make up for amongst those who like others, but we have to be aware of that multiple people like Alvin popstars realize way out people's words, according to the Quran and Sunnah is what we have to do way up people's words, according to the Quran and Sunnah. But how are you going to do that in the first place? If you haven't got the knowledge to do that in the first place? You can't differentiate between the heart and the boxing. So to you if you haven't got knowledge, someone's speaking bots it sounds like because especially as women
taken away by emotions, if someone comes on with emotional weight speaking Oh, that sounds really nice. But what they're saying is not in line with Aquinas.
So we have to, we have to realize this.
Okay, another benefit or blessing that we get from seeking knowledge is being able to recognize the sicknesses of your own heart. Okay, now, the sickness of the heart, like there's many diseases that many animals have,
such as delta, such as habitat, jealousy, such as, you know, hatred, such as, react, showing off bodily that, you know, we tend to be men. So it's kind of like, if we have knowledge, when you seek knowledge, what will happen is, you're able, first of all, to identify these diseases in your heart and realize, wait a minute, I can feel I've got this disease coming in my heart. And then you also have had a really nice, like, you become your own doctor, right, you become your own doctor, and you can go and you know, you can basically work out what the prescription is that you need to take, in order for you to, to fix up this problem that you have in your, in your, in your heart to kind of
walk. So this is another of the benefits of seeking knowledge.
Obviously, from the great benefits of seeking knowledge also is knowledge leads to
it leads to actually pay to watch estates.
And we see the status. If we look at the Select devices, we see how, how much they were racing towards the good days. They are rushing and racing towards the good days, what was the main thing that's fueling that? What's the main thing fueling that racing to good dates? Is the knowlegeable law, the knowledge and his deep knowledge of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the more you increase in that the more you get focused, you want to raise for the good deeds. Look at him. I'm afraid Rahim Allah, it was from his habit. It was from his habit to pray 300 Raka now what is it 300 what rock on your life that's a total his five prayers every day that's gone. That's
gone. That's that's during the whole year. That's the normal day for him. And an afternoon the present because how long he got like beaten and stuff like that, you know, he became weekend through the, you know, the punishment he went through in prison. He could only pay 150 rock hard when he came out. I mean, malefic give us
we're lucky if we can get a 12 and a weapon every single day. May Allah give us them upon the 12 the one from the Messenger of Allah cola to the crazies 12 the ones who praise his talks and the praise that the robots he prays the connected to the fun praise that Allah will have done like Sharma may or may Allah help us to be steadfast upon these prayers.
But we see how much the seller was stealing their time with the recitation and memorization of the Quran, with you know, pm and they were sort of always striving with, you know, serving the format so many things are very easy. In the beginning they find everything that benefits teaching, giving per hour like this was how they spent their whole lives.
Amanda Shapiro from the labs reported that he used to recite the Quran 30 times. He used to recite three times each month a Ramadan he used to recite it 60 times. Like who came up man was canceled again like I said, you may forgive us many of us we don't even we might be only pick up the Quran in Ramadan, which is very sad, this is wrong. So I need to move on. If this is our case, we need to cry over ourselves. How do you claim to love a law and you are far away from his words, the
law. So how can we be far away from his words the panel law says we truly love a life he truly claim to love a law he should have a relationship with the width of the law every single day of your life you can't be away from it. And the one day that you had your time to speak with a Columbia Law and to recite the Quran, you feel you die It was not because there's something wrong with your day there's something deficient in your diet is how we should feel. One day goes by we did resign from the from the width of a lot that we should feel this something deficiently outside.
So this is how we say that knowledge is truly a path to Jannah because of the way it opens up the amen for you. This is why the Prophet said I love it. He was telling me segments Seneca body teny Sufi Sahaba who are the party agenda to ever take apart path in which he seeks knowledge allows the counselor makes the path agenda easy for him. So we say that this is you know from the kids. If we want
Really, john laughs the best ways to reach the Jannah is to take this path of seeking knowledge because of the way opens up so many doors of hate for you. And why is that? Because we say knowledge. What does it do? It leads to fear of a law. And what does fear of a law do? It leads to our mind is to action. That's what I lost it in. In America.
Those who truly fear of law and from those who are from God, and who have knowledge of his religion, they are the ones who feel what how is feeding the law for your life, not just having tears, when you hear about a law mission, it's not just that it's about putting the data into action. So the more that you put the dean into action is shot up on your life, the more you're showing your fear of law.
Also, dow of course, is another fruit of thinking knowledge. So this is another thing that opens up the door, as well. So these are all the things that open up for you, when you take this path of knowledge.
so this is what we see that you know, people who complain about their life, you know, feeling empty feeling words, that are realized, how when you feel your life, and we with the highest, with the righteous deeds, of seeking knowledge and are mad that comes along with it. This is how you fill your life with Nord with lights, and with Buddha in sha Allah with guidance from Allah.
So the other thing too, that noise does fear is that, you know, seeking knowledge is a huge predictor, like we said, from from Siemens, and from PETA, you don't have because what happens is you get so busy seeking knowledge, you don't have time to meet too much. You find people away from seeking knowledge, what do they do? What are they? What is it, they just get around food, always gathering around food, talking about things that read no benefit in this life? Or the next, talking about dunya? That's always talking about dunya. That's all that they can be confused with? And what benefit is that for you in this part in the next?
I'm not saying you shouldn't socialize sometimes, but make it a treat. It shouldn't be something you do every single day, you're never gonna have time to seek knowledge. As long as you're feeling you're trying to just get getting gathering and talking and, and eating that's not going to help you to it's not beneficial. What's it going to be on your piano in your skype? What's it going to be most likely it's going to be Unfortunately, not in the society is going to be you know.
So this is the thing, the more that is seeking knowledge is you start to you know, get more focus in your life, you don't have time to be mixing so much and wasting time getting into fitness things.
And you get busy with all sort of wipes and things that are gone from that seeking knowledge. Another benefit of seeking knowledge the sisters, is you're in them constantly, you're able to keep it at a higher level. If you allow three man to the sweetness will be bad, because why? Because you're constantly refilling your event. But what is what do we know about events? that a man? Yes, he took it for us, it goes up and increases with the righteous deeds, where you're feeling masculine,
h e t creases with maaseiah it decreases with the mafia, like with the, with the with the disobedience to a lot. So simple disobedience makes the man go down. So the more that you're trying to obviously you're seeking knowledge. You know, we know that, for example, the message while I mentioned that, you know the forgiveness of a wall that you're acquiring for seeking knowledge, your wounds you're getting through seeking knowledge. So obviously by doing that, by taking that path of a loss of cansada you're constantly refuting your manual constantly reminding yourself of a wall and the rock and the company you're keeping as well. You see the company or Kp, one sister in the closet
doing a project on sort of doing a project. Another one she goes and visit sisters and other ones doing is you find everyone at class is striving in one way or another in their own speciality but everyone has their own speciality. Right, everyone's striving in their own unique
speciality for the F iraq but the point is when you're in that environment, it encourages you makes you think I need to do more. I'm not doing enough for my elf Iraq's citizens have a man is constantly refilled through seeking knowledge.
The other thing is to come up, seeking knowledge gives you a great deal of happiness in your heart. Don't you feel happy? Isn't that good? obviously much more happy to know your brain the way the Messenger of Allah is to pray. Not just what your mom told you or your grandmother. But everything you're doing is a prayer. You know, there's a tally for it. And you know what, you know what that means? You know what that evidence is? For what you're doing and you're crazy. You're worshiping God
On Buddha, you wish being a law on guidance you not just worshiping the law like from from blindly following your family for you but you're worshiping Him upon him and it takes a different level. It gives a different level in return and it brings happiness to your heart as the Messenger of Allah tala solo cannot wait to move to Sunday. Pray as you see me praying, who don't mean even it can take for me your rights for hygiene or rap. You know so when you when you go into hygiene online, you know what other rulings and the can for hygiene,
if you happiness in your heart that you know you're doing everything from, from this from following the basic job of law and we know that remember what Allah says in the Quran.
Allah says in the Quran, that he created death and life to test you to see which one of you is best. Indeed, he did not say x or Allah, he did say the most. And he said that the best deeds, what makes the best of the two above what makes the best update.
doing that dates and see for a lot of those. We're not making any partners without react. And then after that, secondly, doing it in a accordance to the Sunnah of the Prophet said a lot while he would say that. So the more that our team has it, and the more that you keep doing it based upon the guidance of the Prophet, so love is not an integration, not on your ignorance. But on true knowledge from what the messenger Allah told us the true guidance message of a lot, the more love that day.
This is why a person upon the sooner they might GST that person on beat on the occasions, but they are more apt to abort because they are more fulfilling these two conditions have had, you know, a bad acceptance.
Right. And also to because, you know, for example, like for like maybe they do millions of things every day that were there for sure. So it's not about, it's not so much about doing more days, it's doing them in a more perfect way, in a way that overlaps. This is what we should be aiming for perfecting our deeds over trying to do so much and then not getting anything really out of it and not having sure in what we're doing.
I want to talk a little bit now about the path to seeking knowledge. Now I've tried to cover as much as I can, but like people might have individual questions that want to ask, and that's fine. We'll we'll get to that at the end. So if you write down any questions, you have a will can deal with any individual questions at the end. But let's talk a little bit about you know, how to seek knowledge, especially for our situation and being mothers and wives. We have a different situation than men, like men in general,
really bad, like, yes, they have to work, but they basically like they come back from work. And they basically, I mean, a lot of ways they off the hook. But as you know, as a mother or a wife, you never really asked her for like 45 or 50. Really, unquote, our case is different, our situation is different. We can't just go abandon the house and you don't mean that there has to be someone and fine to raise those children and to keep the household together. So okay, so how to seek knowledge? You know, first of all, we have to realize that knowledge is a great thing from a law. Knowledge is a blessing from a law. And it's something that Allah gives.
He only gives it to him he wants would
like as the Messenger of Allah so long, why is that? And he told us, may you the lab will be higher on your team to ever allow what's good for him. He says a comprehension of the religion is in the understanding of the religion. So if we want this, if we want this in from Allah subhanaw taala we need to realize that it is a risk from Allah is a provision from a law, we have to take it from a law and how do we do that? First of all, by having these laws, we have to purify our intention with the purifier annotations as they give a lot and make our attention in thinking is knowledge that are first and foremost intention and thinking is knowledge. We want this knowledge to bring us closer to
a ball. All right, this is the main reason why we want to seek knowledge to bring ourselves closer to know a lot more close to him and inshallah that opens up a path for us to downline Sharla.
Then the other thing as part of this as well is
The main reason for seeking knowledge should be so we can implement into our lives, we start with ourselves, we start with ourselves, we get knowledge for ourselves, get knowledge for our families, this should be our attention seeking knowledge. So that we can implement in our lives and prove ourselves through this knowledge, we should make sure that our first and foremost intention and we have to realize that the true person of knowledge,
this is the true person, that knowledge is the one who takes that action, so takes that knowledge and turns it into action. So not it's not enough just to have knowledge, it's not enough to just memorize books or to know things, this knowledge should come out in your actions. And from those actions,
we should create humbleness, good character comes out of the person who seeks knowledge. So, if a person by them increasing their knowledge,
you know, a beautiful character coming out that person humbleness, you know, friendliness, these kind of beautiful characteristics, which the corpus of lies and the love characteristics, right, then this shows this noise, this person, so, noise should not make you become more aggressive and harsh with people knowledge should unify your character and, and he should read your humbleness with others and show not to become stuck up and look down on people because you know, more than others or something like this.
Okay, then the other thing of why because if you've got noise, obviously, you've got shooting on each each should increase your fear of a wall. So from your fear of law, you feel too scared to treat somebody in a like, treat them like looking down on them and to act proud over them or something like this, because you've got fear of a lot, you know, I was watching you, that's the one who has true knowledge.
Okay, then the other thing is, obviously, you have to make knowledge a priority in your life. If you really want to take knowledge, you have to make it as a priority. Really, is this this? Don't tell me I'm too busy. It's not an experience. Let's have a look out.
Look for just have a little think for a moment about your own day.
How much time do we spend on waste wasteful matters, we spend maybe if we add up at one time, how long I've had my daughter show me a place on my phone, we can actually see how many hours you spent in the last week on particular apps.
And the panel or you might find that part of your phone or the iPhone and above every other phone. But there's a particular place on the iPhone, which is really scary to contemplate. We can actually see how many hours you've spent in that week. And you know, if you work it out, if you work just say you spend say, you think about if you've spent only one thing you might think it's only one hour a day you're spending on social media, for example, you add that up, you know, whoa, wait, that's like seven hours already gone? Seven hours, what could you have gone in at 10 an hour.
So we have to realize this Sunday things we're doing and they're not we are we are totally wasting our time. Some women time they go overboard in their housework. I mean, yes, it's beautiful to have a nice house or get rewarded for people who have critical for your husband, the moxa level where it is constantly all you do is dust every single day in the house from top to bottom, you know, like and they're just so concerned with their furniture and everything like how the house looks. And then you ask them, oh, Mikey has come across this and we'll come to some like colorful today, they tell you I don't have time
to house like, Oh, she can also do you think she feels really fulfilled like that. The Society for God she really feels to feel you find she does and she feels empty. Because why? Because the way she
you know, like the show she gets rewarded for, you know, pleasing her husband, but trust me, most husbands, they don't require that they always usually the woman, it's not the methods of the husband, the husband wouldn't even notice if you had published that TV twice today.
He won't notice that. In most husbands, just what they're looking for is a happy wife. In fact, they will happy with a happy wife than the outside the wife that polished the TV, she's unhappy. You don't meet
husbands and wives. But anyway, it's about making knowledge a priority. A priority every single day and a priority every single week. Like what I mean by that is you should have certain days where you in your time slot. your schedule, you put aside this is my time to go and memorize grant for example, or go and learn takes weeks I have that that time blocked off. Right or my time to do check out classes. I have particular time in the week where I go to that and then I have to have daily time. So we schedule your time. Now I can't tell you when that time is but like if you're memorizing the plan, the best time to memorize the graph is in the morning. What
When you're fresh before your brain gives rise to all the responsibilities and children that you know.
So like, for example, early in the morning, if you can have the fight for like five o'clock, 10 o'clock in the morning isn't the best time to memorize the brand to really take in the air yet. So it's about scheduling your time. Now, speaking knowledge, like it can be at nighttime, I can feel fine, you're like, I think I was gonna say something to you as well, like, now some excuses. Like I said, before I complain about like, my husband's too busy, and he's always out, you don't realize, you could use even turn that into an hour for yourself by compressing a crying ready, so full time, teachers of lucky Allah has blessed me and gave me all this time where I can seek knowledge, you
seek knowledge and make make use of something and I can't get away from the husband's like that they want to say no extra husband's always around, and they can't get away with anything you got to
make make use of your time.
So it's about putting a little bit of time aside, like, a lot of people also you need to be patient seeking knowledge requires patience, the message of
knowledge is by learning. Like you don't wake up one morning and become a knowledgeable person. Any Island in this world did not wake up one morning and suddenly memorize the whole line. I knew all the time on social media, you know, like, it took years and years and years of doing, doing a certain amount of working towards that goal every single day of their lives. So it's about the daily habits that you laid down for yourself, I will add up.
Difference in yourself. If you're the conductor, like this is inversely virtuous, then we'll come back to say they put themselves into crying classes and things like that, you'll see differently, sometimes tweeting is passive by another system who didn't do that. And she's come a long way when the other ones we should start out with has hardly progressed. And I'm not to criticize anyone, but just kind of show you that this is the different thing, it just make that a daily habit, you will get some way you will come along. But Don't be impatient. Don't think comes overnight, it takes time. It takes patience, it takes too hard, you have to ask the boss, you have to really want that,
you know, okay, so
one of the mistakes we find when it comes to seeking knowledge is that a lot of people and systems, they jump from one thing to the next, like, I usually
excited, you know, we all join, but like, after a few weeks or months, it'll bring those down, you know, and then a new a new class that's on it's over to that guys. It's just all about what's new and exciting. But once it gets boring, it's like they go on to the next thing, which sounds exciting to you, you know, but you have to realize, if you're going to jump from one thing to the next, basically, you're never going to really get anywhere. The only way to be to seek knowledge is to be consistent start into something and see it all the way through from the beginning to the end. And that takes a lot of patience that most people don't have the patience, right the only way to take
knowledge you have to say your subjects through see it through to the end. And then the other thing is
a lot of people make an
even rather they do the same thing but what they do is they think speaking knowledge is is a seek knowledge about minor branches of Islam. Okay, so what you find is like, they might go and find all about your pet like the day like you know, the size of their doctor, for example, the size is a judgment, they go in looking for that so much, or they go in, you know that what about the gene? exploiting topics, you don't mean the things that get people to go listen, right? Like, what is the best English today we should see the whole word for but you know, that's a boring topic. That's not an exciting topic. To talk about gene, obviously, the whole Roomful but that's the reality. That's
how most people are like, they just want the exciting, but that's not how to seek knowledge. Seek you know, if you have to be patient, and you're gonna have to study things are not always exciting. But you will benefit ultimately, by being patient and seeing through that knowledge.
Another one that people get into these days is you know, tech fee, you know, like, you know, a lot of people they get into the region, the first topic they go to, I can be like, how can I make one How can I make Sonic cat for like, one of the things on that and they get right to that but yet if I say um, by the way, how much quantity memorized, but probably even even done.
And I can recite correctly according to Chad, we'd like to look at the way we were approaching the knowledge that's not serious as in knowledge by approaching knowledge in this way. It's not about excitement, issues or biases.
Mine at branch of Islam, it's about starting from the beginning starting with your foundation subjects, you know, the first foundation subject everyone should be focusing on In fact, Peter so he started off with that understanding and you know, getting a good grasp on understanding fifth because fifth is your wife, it's your you know your daily life. It's all about the, you know, the rulings on what you do every single day, knowing how to pray, knowing how to handle, you know, all of these different things and and then also go on, how can someone have been a true secret knowledge and I have a client program. We see a lot of sisters like they go, they usually have classes, but
they don't have any program. The Quran is the beginning of Athena and the end of an era. But there was one chef he went and studied all of our masters Nakia he cannot have the chef now what do I do? How do I feel the happiness because I understand that
he should go to the grind. That's how you feel the app here that's what brings it to life. That's where it's from the Quran. So you have to be the brand. That should be your first and foremost priority, you will not find one scholar on the face of this earth, who didn't start with the Quran, the Quran has to avoid it. That's why you find in the schedule of relena. The first thing they do they teach their kids first when they're young. And then after that they start telling you all the biographies of the great one in that chapter.
You find the first thing you see their biography, guys, they memorize the
result. I'm not saying we should never like it's harder for us to make our kids memorize grant by six or seven and show I hope to have it show up sooner. This isn't also about his particular point of teaching your pizza branch if you're interested. But this should be a priority we should be a priority in our in our routing.
If you want to be depending on how serious you want a basic knowledge, Arabic should be part of your schedule. But like it depends, like everyone will have all signals on the same level. For most women, it's perfectly fine. Just go signal it's backwards. So he goes deep knowledge about the simple things like your daily life. That's more than enough at best actually sections you've covered your essentials you've covered your foundation is showing up at Gatsby you're amazed by if you want to go more and deeper want to be a teacher you want to go further. You can't get away from studying Arabic You have to know Arabic You have to be understand the client's original language, the deen
like you want to know Elena, you've got to be around an Arabic You have to learn. So this is another important thing.
Okay, then we come to time management.
So, like I was saying before, it's got to be a schedule for yourself, you're gonna make a schedule for yourself a weekly schedule a daily schedule.
You know, when I remember when I was first married, for example,
I was just named my husband sometimes I used to feel like
talking to my son so like my son will be playing. And I'll use that time to present boys teaching myself for a while, like I read grandma at that time. And I used to always handle up to that time to memorize while he was breastfeeding, it's a good time to memorize the Quran for example. So you know, you're going to learn how to juggle as a woman, you have to learn how to juggle your lifestyle to fit in with the
technology in general.
You know, kind of divine in general, women are pretty good at multitasking. So this is a way for you like if you're seeing yourself doing something you're doing it as a mundane household chore, right? And you think that there's nothing you could be doing alongside it could be benefiting you like maybe it's because intellectually maybe you're you know, cleaning up your kitchen and that can be very boring on the campaign trail or waterfall. But at the same time you could really lecture and learning something while you're while you're you know while you're cleaning up your kitchen and then you're not waiting you know you're killing two birds with one stone and imagine how much hassle like
you're getting shot
down like for example that advant radio app you can listen to the lecture they had even English lectures on there as well so that's another thing you do from ps advion radio or any of these
ones about music and stuff okay, so that's that's what you know I used to do I used to make and that used to make me feel more fulfilled you know, having that time where I'd say this is my time for Arabic like with my son goes to bed with my son down but he's very small. And then I've got two hours to myself like that my time.
My my RV and I feel really happy when he wakes up myself some stuff
So that might be before going to bed, you know, there might seem just, you know, do some people going to bed, or if the market starts to fudge, you got to stay with your own lifestyle, what? what fits in with you.
Okay, um, the other thing, which is important, I think, is I've noticed some sisters, they kind of overdo it and be like, they drink too much. They go into lessons every week, like, you should choose some that are really benefiting you and stick to that, like, you can't be really, if you've got children you really can't be doing, he can't be going in the house so much. If you want to get somewhere you know, you need to kind of cut back on things and like he can't be having a lesson every single day of the week. Because what will happen is you spread yourself too thin. It's better for you to a couple days in the gym really well. And really get a lot out of it rather than to go
race every single week and be like, what was this one? This this one, this one. But if I asked you about the question about what you're good, you really can't do much because you have too much overload.
Okay, so we have to be careful not to overdo it. And just concentrate on one thing at a time. Don't Don't try to do too much because it you'll end up not really getting anywhere. Another thing obviously is winding down the domain. It's very important why you shouldn't call it a lesson without writing down Why should always go with a pen and paper to write down. Why because it's been proven that just when you go to a less than any lecture, any lesson, you will only retain I think it's like something like 30%. From what you've heard, if you haven't written it down. When you write it down, I think you retire in about 80%, something like that. But once you leave this room today, like
you'll remember for about an hour, some of the things I've said, but the majority of things bypass your Wi Fi out whenever we talk about you please remember a story I told you that's about it. And you will remember the key points. It's very important to really benefit from any gathering of knowledge that you take, you know, pen and paper when you're even typing, you're fired, but you just make notes. It's very important.
Okay, now, another thing, obviously, if we want to seek knowledge, we need to try to keep away from sins as well, by the way from sins. Allah says, What laws were you I'm in law, federal law and Allah will teach you a lot since federal law. And a lot of teachers that a lot of people think with is money money, people think provision is only money and wealth that realize that knowledge is a risk from above that we want this risk from a loss we do have to try to keep away from things as much as possible, and show us that it was pantalla the stone is this this is this thing upon us in sha Allah May Allah increase us in it
and this is why I make a lot of use as well as a lot of fun a lot of stuff a lot of stuff a lot like climate repair a tober
we say this for the story.
A lot You probably heard that story before about one time and Mashallah very sharp. He was a genius. He was he truly a genius, but and he is memorize things very, very simply, like just look at a page and he already memorized just like that. But one time he was having some trouble memorizing and he could play to his ship and walk. Yeah. You know about he couldn't memorize and memorize something. He told him a walk and he and his chef told him, he said that he advised him to leave things. He said late since they will be aware of since he said because in his new knowledge is no
knowledge is no law, the life of a law
is not given to a subpoena the knowledge of a law sorry, the life of a law the new law is not given to a sinner. So that's why the system if we find we're having trouble getting into safety knowledge by pretending this and going halaqaat and going through crime classes, we should also check within our hearts.
Maybe we have a buildup of sins that's preventing us from having to allow for taking knowledge for going to lessons to learning the font. We should look into our heart maybe there's things in our heart that's blocking us because we think that we could get the
point out and we'll right we don't realize that when you go to a lesson actually allows you to come here like even if every one of you today you think you came here by yourself. But you don't realize that Panama it was only by the blessing of a law that you came here today. It surely shows me that surely I'm not alone. With every one of you the fact that you came here today you took that time out on a Sunday morning shows inshallah this sincerely you want the voice and you have to realize that show along with it wouldn't be you able to do that show line eight make any tension from today that to change your life. Change Your Life.
Today, go ahead the slides go by, and you feel unfulfilled Don't be the one who's on his deathbed on her deathbed, looking back at a bar, thinking, having lots of regrets and thinking, I wish I did this. I wish I hadn't had, I wish I spent more time memorizing a bride, reading the bond seeking knowledge. Don't be that one. Because it's a very painful kind of regret. So do your best and know that when you as long as you're in this path, or Laurie Ward's you according to your intention?
Okay, so let's come now.
One more thing to realize
about thinking knowledge. If you want to save No, he didn't see the cut out the unnecessary things from your life. If you want to be serious about taking no, if you just have to cut out the unnecessary things in your life, like I say, cut back on socialization, obviously, going out of your house too much like, Okay, if you can try to, instead of going out every single day like we are, we like ultimately, like the very what we want to think about ourselves that come to the lab, we have to realize that the world has not been created like the man and you know, yourself, I know why. So when I go out every single day, I get tired. By the time you come back, your brain is broken, you
probably think about taking your boys, you know. So it's very important. We have days at home where we don't go out, we stay at home, and we use that time to chill at home, to concentrate on seeking knowledge. And to try to cut back when you're going out going back women go out far too much now. Like it wasn't like getting a chance to harbor they used to be home much, much more. By now within like now we have Yeah, of course, something we can't avoid. We're taking kids to school, things like that. But maybe if you can try to reschedule yourself so that you are planning once a week to go shopping, or going out many times a week when the tide goes in and out in and out once a week to go
shopping or in short. If you try to arrange with your husband to go shopping for you. Things like that, you know, try to work your way around with that you can try to stay home more will help you to be able to focus more on seeking knowledge. And so I know we all have
a different situation, we don't always have that priority. You know, we have that we're able to change these things, but try your best to do this. Everyone has their own situation, see what they can do. But I guarantee if you ever look at their life, there are things you can cut out especially like the social media, like I said before, there's so many things we can cut back on to get back some time Russell to use it wisely, inshallah, but what benefits us, Okay, now let's talk about balancing the family life as well here. And that is,
it is really important important to say no, it is important to have that support of the husband, it does help greatly. It does help greatly. So any young sister here who wants to take knowledge, I would advise her to you know, before getting married to make sure her husband's a type that does support his wife and taking knowledge. Because if the husband's not really behind you that can be a hindrance, it can it can stop you so um, but even if the husband doesn't 100% support the woman are hungry. Now we have so many ways of seeking knowledge, different from the past, but you don't have to always go to your house. To seek knowledge, you can seek knowledge inside your home, like Allah
has blessed us with the internet, like the internet can be used for what this means. But if you use it wisely, you can design blessings that come through it. And you can you can learn so much through the internet, you can learn Arabic through the internet, or on the internet, you can learn those days, as long as you know where to go. Because it's my advice, I advise you to seek advice from trustworthy share of where to go to seek your knowledge on the internet. Because as we know, the internet's cause a lot of problems for a lot of people who get lost on the internet. It's a big question that you can easily get lost.
We have to remember the systems that when it comes to the husband, we cannot change our husband. Right? We cannot change other people, we have to learn something and they start seeking knowledge. They get really excited. I mean, why doesn't my husband seek knowledge, like he hasn't done anything Why? You know, like, and I get frustrated with their husbands and sometimes they start to look down and they have because they're not keeping up to date. She's one of contracting knowledge. So it's very important that we don't start looking down on oil, and accept the reality that you cannot change someone else. You can't force someone to be the way you want them to be. I think that's the
most important rule to take from the very beginning. But just accept it the way he is and you yourself, focus on yourself. Focus on bettering yourself and seeking knowledge. And when you share things with him. Talk about my personal perspective of how this is benefiting you in so many ways, like how fulfilled you feel. You have what you learned something that you loved about that you learned recently, you know, share those kind of things. Again, let kids see the good effect on you, your character, your way of treating
Those are things that are going on or like the encouragement, the ones the knowledge that the new sort of like harping on here, or, you know,
make it into an enjoyable thing where it's like,
going out with us go together this time and kind of just try it in something like they can really try that. But really, it's pretty rare. I mean, there are some sisters that they go to listen to their husbands, that's really nice. But in all reality, it's pretty rare to find that you don't have that you've got that as Marshall on earful for you. But a lot of sisters don't have that they just got it. So they
you know, he goes to Japan or something like that, but some of the main
mistakes, like, on the internet and stuff like that, that's how they they learned that way. So we have different captain, realize different circumstances for everyone.
The other thing to mention is that
we have to balance our priorities, you know, seeking knowledge is, is a is a sort of, like it's a it's a recommended, like it's rewardable thing of doing it is super, ultimately the sooner but if it's, of course, it's your foundation swaggy. But he's trying to tell he's coming to the what you need for your life, which you need to know, know, to practice or do, of course, that technology is widely but after that, it's basically tsunami. So we can't, we can't put like we can't sacrifice out. Where do you get home
in order to go for a sauna. So we have to learn how to balance that like so there's nothing wrong with of course, like seeking knowledge, we should try our best to prioritize our time to seek knowledge. But at the same time, we shouldn't go overboard, that we're constantly just outside and just, you know, seeking knowledge completely and then our children are going astray. You know, our marriage is falling apart. But that shouldn't be okay. So we have to always remember that you have to depart always you know your husband, keeping your family for him on a straight path like Allah says all and also come with it come narrow, say yourselves and your families from the fire. So this
should be your priority. Don't don't sacrifice like, you know, my other one percenters to go help other sisters or wherever they have a lot to do to help people but you've got to remind yourself as a sister, as a woman, your wedges, you know, it starts with your home first. You know, Allah says most people use SQL now what?
Well, that's about
it, like don't go out of the house all the time to explain your routine. So like our base should be our home, not the other way around. Now we find sisters outside and Ethernet again, she comes home.
To me next gen square, which is always now Gloria Dean kind of coffee. I'm not saying you should have coffee virgin, sometimes I'm just saying like people like you know, drop off the kids go to coffee shop as the director don't even take it out of the house all the time, it's like going to the shops has been half the day or prequels a day outside the house. You know, so and then, you know, it's like, it's a good thing you're doing but you can't put all that like, you know, you can't put your your what's important what's more important aside for for you know, something that's to not do you have to do priority even to make sure that you know, your household is stabilized and then after
you've done that if you can achieve that then you can think about you know, taking knowledge and doing outside activities as much as you can to your ability and don't overdo it like learn to say no to say this is as much as I can do and I can't do more than that. Because a lot of students have had trouble saying no
you know like ultimate come join us class ik joins us all right and then 100
all my account
activity now like
helping people whenever they want to everything, but in the end, but this is the sad reality is time anything and we can't afford to be abandoning our houses relate to behind maintaining, making sure that there's a strong foundation behind because this is made up of households. So we have to worry about our household cleaning our household together, not you know like neglecting the husband so much that we end up in divorce or degrading our children so that like you're seeking noise Mashallah the key. They're not on the straight path. They're a strange
grind you haven't been careful to bring them up properly and given the product idea, this is why we had a woman
so you have to grab parties into
into Hold on.
So they got mentioned most of the things that I wanted to mention.
You know, show
If anyone has questions, I'll be more than happy to answer any questions you might have about, you know, any individual
problems or questions that you might have.
Remember that, you know, the message of a live athlete, you know, after lots of fantastic questions asked about, you know, all about
why'd you actions of, you know, prayers and fasting and all those activities?
he tells us that led senzu the Yeoman Leanna, Had
you ever won our pa that a person would not move?
And so they asked about for Max's and folders for medicine is about his knowledge, and how he acted upon it. So we have to know that knowledge is something would be even asked about, and you know, that will blow your brain, you know, how are we asked, Who is your board? What is your religion? Who is your prophet? And how we have getting together to answer the questions all through knowledge, through knowledge and through acting upon that knowledge. So, knowledge is that it cannot be overlooked. It's a very essential part of the life of a Muslim, as any any part of knowledge that is essential to know like, like things like Toki, and your foundation, our foundation in prayer and
fasting and all of the acts of worship which is a compulsory for us, it is wise to seek knowledge of that type of knowledge to know so that we can know for ourselves know for our families, such as always a bit of a fish, by which we can also say allama Haney out
again, Path of Allah, I ask orthographies with you from knowledge that does not benefit workers being late yaksha and a heart It does not feel good when asking them to spa and that's a self that does not get satisfied without waiting legs
If anyone has any questions, I'll leave it at that. And if you've got any questions, I'll be happy to answer them.
