Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi over kettleby spiller Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam today is another reflection in sha Allah to Allah, over what we have done so far in the past 17 or 18 days of Ramadan May Allah subhanaw taala accept it from all of us in sha Allah, I'm just coming today to remind you and myself that we have to keep going and we have to push our limits to maximize the benefits of this blessed month. Inshallah, the thing that I wanted to talk about today in particular is time as a teacher, my students will always ask me the question, how to manage time, how can we develop this skill called time management. And it was some

00:00:51--> 00:01:38

years ago when I was very interested in the same topic time management, I attended seminars, I bought a lot of books because I myself couldn't manage my time, I will always say I want to do so such and such but I don't have the time. And I'm sure you all relate to the same thing Where the Time Goes Subhanallah and only in idealize at one point in time, one point in time that I cannot manage time, time is not something that you can simply manage. Because to manage something you need to be in control of it. For example, if you wanted to manage your money, you simply could lock it in the bank or saving it or budgeting your expenses and so on. Now, you have managed your expenses. Now

00:01:38--> 00:02:25

you have managed your finances. But how could you do that with time? You simply can't. Why don't you try you can simply watch time slipping away, you can watch the clock ticking you can go to sleep and waste hours watching videos and watching TV series. Time will keep going. Whether you like it or not just like Ramadan. Subhan Allah and Avi we are approaching the last 10 days of Ramadan how many of us today are looking back at the first day of Ramadan remembering the promise that they will fast Ramadan and worship Allah subhanaw taala this year like never before and looking at ourselves now day 17 and 18 regretting these days that we have wasted whether on YouTube or Tik Tok or whatnot

00:02:25--> 00:03:06

time, my brothers and sisters in Islam cannot be managed. The point that I'm trying to highlight here and probably I emphasized it already in the video is that time keeps on moving automatically and does not require our management because it is simply unmanageable. What we need to manage, however, is ourselves and our priorities. What we need to do my brothers and sisters in Islam is to maximize the time that we have on Earth by doing that which is good by doing that which is essential and most important to us and to our loved ones by doing that which is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala by doing that, which will make the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem, proud of us on the Day of

00:03:06--> 00:03:50

Judgment by struggling hard to do that which is halal and to stay away from that which is prohibited and haram and to do that day in and day out every single day of our lives until we meet Allah subhanaw taala in sha Allah with pure heart because every day could become a valuable time in the skill of your good deeds on the day of judgment or the opposite. A wasted time that Allah subhanaw taala most definitely will question you about but remember, don't ever regret what you've already wasted. You're still alive, we still have the time to repent and to go back to Allah subhanaw taala and make some amends and the last 10 days of Ramadan are fast approaching so make a decision to

00:03:50--> 00:04:07

Never waste your time anymore because you can't manage it make a decision to maximize the time you have on Earth by doing that which is beneficial and most important and don't forget to expect the best from Allah subhanaw taala See you tomorrow inshallah. Santa Monica
