Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi over I get one of the things that will definitely help you develop this concept of expecting the best from Allah subhanaw taala in your heart, in your mind and in your life is to leave a legacy behind before you pass away before you depart this dunya to leave something of value to your children, to your community, to the people that you have interacted with. So at least when they remember you, they raise their hands and they make dua and the Ask Allah subhanaw taala to have mercy upon you for what you have told them or what you have left behind. And whenever you work toward that direction to leave a legacy to leave a print that will always benefit mankind after you

00:00:51--> 00:01:31

you will definitely expect in return that Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward you Subhan Allah all the time. That's why the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his final speech he said, but laguan New Allah, convey on my behalf even a single verse, whatever you've learned from Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran, whatever you have learned from the narrations from the Sunnah of the Prophet pawns are seldom teach pass on perhaps one of these teachings will be your legacy. I remember my students will always ask me about consistency. How can we start a project? Or how can we maintain that level of energy to keep doing what is right day in and day out without fail and

00:01:31--> 00:02:11

Subhanallah Lima told him it is easier said than done. But it's absolutely possible, absolutely doable. And one of the things that can help you develop that energy in your heart to keep going no matter what happened in your life, no matter what obstacles you have faced, no matter what pain you're going through, no matter what sickness you may encounter, you keep going according to your ability and your capacity at that stage is working in this dunya to leave a legacy after you depart this dunya because your vision your eyes always on the hereafter always on Jana, and that's why Subhanallah Lee when you analyze the ayat in the Quran about Ibrahim and his sunnah and building the

00:02:11--> 00:02:59

Kaaba, you will understand that he was building it, not only because it was a command from Allah subhanaw taala. But his vision was bigger than that his vision was an ummah, to flourish after him, and to come in that very space that he had built for you to testify that there is no God worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. Today's final rule of Islam that we have started a couple of episodes ago, is the rule of leaving a legacy and by no means the rules of it's the karma are limited to only five points, we can in fact, fill up another series just about is the karma, but due to the limitation and the time that we have attained, we just restricted to

00:02:59--> 00:03:51

five points and shot a lot of time today is the rule of leaving a legacy. Allah Subhana. Allah says in the Quran, where we all fall, Ibrahim, who called them in Ethiopia is now Elam burner burning in Africa and the semi Oh lolly. And when they brought him on, he said him and his son Ismail were raising the foundations, the pillars of the house of Allah subhanaw taala the Kaaba while they were doing that they were making a DUA, they were begging Allah subhanaw taala did this work will be blessed but did he say who Allah number one, accept this from us accept this strictly for your sake. And this is another thing you can reflect on in sha Allah, Allah whenever you do anything, remember

00:03:51--> 00:04:48

to do it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and that will help you to expect the best from him in sha Allah, and in their da they acknowledged that Allah subhanaw taala is the only one who accept the prayers in Naka Anta semi Alani you are the here the most knowledgeable, you know the intent you know, that we are doing it sincerely for your sake and then they continue with their Doha division is not limited to just oh Allah accept this from us. Division is way beyond beyond that they continue on burner, John Mosley, Nene laka the Rio Tina, Latin moose limit and LEC were Elina SICA now to Bala Hina, in Mecca and that will Rafi Oh Allah made us sincerely submissive to you Muslim

00:05:00--> 00:05:56

alone it's about the entire human race and guide us in our rituals in our prayers in our worship and accept our repentance when we are accept our repentance in NACA into tillable Rahim, you are the one who accept the repentance. You are the one who is most Merciful. Not only that they didn't stop there. Their vision is bigger and bigger and bigger around Ben our bath theme lawsuit than mere two wanting to go are you on Lemuel keytab hate metal I use a key in in Mecca and tele as he is on your hockey, Allahu Akbar, oh Allah and send among them a messenger from amongst themselves not a stranger, not a foreigner just from amongst themselves who would recite upon them your versus your

That's what Ibrahim alayhis salam and his son were asking Allah for Subhan Allah, they didn't just care about their time. I fulfill my obligation. That's it. They were making a dua for you, my brothers and sisters. Look at that. Subhanallah look at the vision look at the legacy they wanted to leave behind. That's why every single prayer we perform, whether it is obligatory or optional prayer, we mentioned the name of Ibrahim alayhis salam and his family Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad Ali Muhammad, come as a lighter
