Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or Chevelle ohmori. My desire to have a coup d'etat in Buda akula be the atom de la que la barra infinity am about all praise due to align His praise and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family, his companions and his followers until the day of judgment, I bear witness that allows the only one worthy of worship and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his last and final messenger. My dear brothers and sisters, were all equal in time. Because it's the one thing on earth that all humans are equal and
from presidents of countries, to the CEO of companies, to just an average person in the street, he or she, all of us, we share the exact same 24 hours every day.
Yet some of us, some of us have mastered, customize it, and maximize the benefit of these 24 hours. And some of us, as well as basically losing it or wasting it and not benefiting from it. The why that other do
in which case you belong.
When you look at your day, and how much you accomplish every day, when you at the end of the day before you go to sleep. When you look at the end of the week, today's Friday, and you ask yourself what I have accomplished this week, what I have done. And you look at the last month, February, we're just starting March, what you have accomplished.
When you look at the last two months since the year begin.
What about 2017?
What about the last decade of your life?
What about the last 20 years of your life? 30 years of life or life 60 years of your life. And you asked yourself without amount of time comparing to what you have accomplished? Is that equal?
not many of us taught from an early age, how the skills of how to master our time, and how to manage our time properly. And that's one of the things that I advocate. That's our education system.
should be transferred transfer from just information to be skills based. I would rather my son in the school to be taught skills like how to manage their time, properly, then just to be giving so much information, most likely they will forget about it by the end of the year or after the exam in many areas.
And I wish that we many of us were taught trained.
And by the way, it's much easier than many people think. It's not a it's a much easier than many subjects that we studied in school, and many things that we learn in our live. One time a person asked me
how he or she was not anonymous, thereby actually
how you were able to bring your community to muster five times a day.
I said it remembering them five times a day. But you know, some of them did. They said, what about the pray five times a day? I said yes.
Then the person said, That's almost impossible for my community.
It's so hard for me to convince them to pray five times a day. Then they joke with the divine. They said, you know, your Prophet said the same thing. When Prophet Muhammad SAW Solomon and so our Moosa kept tell them telling him Yeah, Mohammed asked Allah to reduce because it's too many, then in there be kept asking a lot to reduce until it became five. Then he said, reduce it more I have experienced with the children of Israel, they didn't commit to that many prayers that nobody saw sometimes that I feel shy to ask for more reductions. I said, You're a prophet. No, you guys. So we were, I was joking with them. But you know what? I reflected upon this later on. And they said, we're naturally
as Muslim, taught through our Islam, how to maximize our benefit from our day and night, that we were able to establish five, five prayers every day. Believe it or not, people outside the circle of Islam see this as a very big compliment every accomplishment every day, that you were able to pray five times a day. Do you cross the day that's accomplishment? And if it shows something, it shows that this religion have taught us how to manage our time properly.
And the mommy Shafi Rahim Allah said about one surah in the Quran, this surah is sufficient for all humanity. If this the only surah was revealed, should it be sufficient for all of us? will answer in an insane and if you host alarm in and of here by our switches as an ambassador time, then I'm not followed by some I swear by the time or Megan Oh, by the time that you human being in constant losses, FiOS Mm
hmm. And if you hustle
Rama Rahim Allah said he always what's the one thing that you constantly losing?
wait, I wish you no money. Not really. Sometimes you get up sometimes
you lose something in health. Sometimes you get better health, some bad days and good days.
Just think about what's one thing that you constantly losing.
It's that thing that Allah starts to do with time.
Alas, that's why rice Rahim Allah said, Your time is like a pack of ice.
You know, in the middle of the day you are outside, calling upon people by my eyes by my eyes. The longer you wait, the lesser, basically merchant you have. So you're constantly losing. This child has an Basia Rahim Allah said he had been Adam in NEMA, Anta yamamura he da da ba ba, ba ba ba book, Oh son of Adam. You're nothing but a collections of days and nights, collections of hours and moments and seconds. So every second every minute every day every night goes by that means you lost part of you. You became less
and he said once Rahim Allah also something very interesting. Carla yamakawa electrica Cup brief for either the Docker image, Roger aka them and like our MADI handler,
he said your day and night. Your time is like a guest. So every day is like a guest coming to your home. And that guest when he leaves either he would say wow, this is a good map. That's a good person. That's a good family. She was a good you know, host or otherwise, your day will say the same thing.
Every day, your night will say the same thing every day. Because whatever you do during that time, it basically will determine how good you are. To that day or tonight. Amanda COVID-19 arpin Elena Wanda khazanah, tan from more madda tavai Hema, he said your day and night are like a safe, what you put in the safe that what you're going to get? So what you did in this day what you did in that night, that what you're going to see in the Day of Judgment.
I never had a safe home, I live in a bank. But every time I go to bank, I see these guys goes to the bank. I said can I go to and some person I see like on a regular basis. I don't know what they do. I don't know if any one of you guys have a safe a bank. Do you guys do that? Go check the save every time. Look at your gold. Look at whatever you have. And let's say an A that person just go look at it. You know what you're going to open that save in the day of judgment when you die. When you meet your Lord. When you meet your deeds, you will see what's in the book, which is what was in your day and in your night.
Well, one lady john and Elena one.
go oh Rhonda shokudo. He's the one who made that nuts comes one after another. For those who want your desire to remember or desire to show their gratitude to Allah. Remember that this time is being given to you as the most valuable gift.
Every time when I teach my students I tell them the end of the course. I really appreciate
that you have given me the most valuable thing that you have, which is your time. That's really the most valuable thing that you possess.
They said time like gold time is not like gold.
Gold can be repurchase, gold goes up and down.
Gold can be replaced that time cannot be replaced.
We'll walk to emphysema beneath me. Hopefully. We'll add one Omani here oh pneumonic.
When one of the young princes asked for advice from a wise man, he wrote him a poetry one line. He said the most valuable thing that you have you possess is not the position is not you being royal families not being rich is not being the future president whatever know the most valuable thing that you have in your hand, it's time and unfortunately, is the one thing that you say you deal with it as of the cheapest things ever. You don't care for it, if you lose it or not.
We waste so much time and I want to say in the beginning that anytime that you spend doing something how long for a burden, something not right? Something you will be hold accountable against it in the Day of Judgment is the waste of time even if it's one second.
Anytime that you waste and watching what is what I'm listening to what is what I'm saying and talking and conversation and head on and forbidden matters. Anytime that you spend in gambling or drinking or anything of these things. It is an a time that is wasted and it is held on anytime that the spent and practicing bidder innovation and religion even if it takes the form of salah and Vicar under our under the bar. It's a waste of time.
called Helena bill Campbell surina Amanda alladhina Bala siyum Phil harati dunya una una Suna. You want to know the worst losers in the Day of Judgment, the owner common the Day of Judgment thinking that they have done so much good, but the reality we didn't. Anyone who wastes his time in things that not according to what Allah and His Lord wants from him.
It's a waste of time.
Those who spent hours and hours
those who spent hours and hours around shisha smoking marijuana
or drugs or doing drugs, wasting their time while they're doing something, how long.
Also wasting time can be in things which is permissible. That's another area where we waste our time. And before I go to the second category, I would not forget to mention in the first category, any hours that you spend in gossip, backbiting in a gathering over the phone or impersonal
over the coffee, but in reality it's over the
flush of your brothers and sisters
that's also head on and waste of time. But also sometimes waste our time in things which is permissible. You know, we cannot be a machine I understand that we do a lot of things which is in its time considered permissible fun, but when it became
a problematic when you waste the time when you overdo it, when you waste your time or you spend so much time in things, which is among the permissible things in Islam, but while there is things that are more important in your life, you completely neglecting you completely ignoring
or things that are more important than you don't care for it at all. And also that's wrong.
It's like that expending too much talking and socializing sometimes you wonder how come the people come to the masjid? The amount they spend and socialize it is more than the amount they spend and read the Quran
sometimes you wonder
that the amount they spend in socialize more than the money spent in praying
sometimes you wonder how can I be focused for a couple of hours watching a movie
but I can't focus for a couple of hours learning or attending a class
sometimes we waste so much time in sleeping and oversleeping I know you sleep you know four hours in it but some people they are they really exceed that especially those and by the weekend that doesn't mean you have a free check to waste your time.
and I will say some people even spend so much time in things which is less important especially with the social media today.
And following and reading every post on Facebook every you know lead in the news and things have not important at all and in the expense and you ask the same person how about Did you read something beneficial? Have you read a book lately? Have you listened to something beneficial? Have you watched something that will benefit you have you tried to learn something that will improve your life it's complete waste of time
and that's another area that the person should be very careful and Nabi sallallahu Sallam once called for someone so this if you have a salon this person fixing his hair then he said another time where his son so highly intelligent, he's also any fixing his hair, the three four incidents that is awesome so you should not be excessive like that.
Card now and
so if you're going to have a hair and you're going to take care of it Don't waste so much time on it
so what also that it gives you one of the things that I see that I know people waste so much time I heard if people spend literally literally 3040 minutes in front of the mirror
one of the things that even I almost make sure that I teach my kids
you know hey you didn't need to spend too much time in front of the mirror
you didn't need to spend too much time you know just you know and wasting time
be efficient. I'm not saying God messy now, but be efficient it just time means something five minutes it means something 10 minutes it means something if we teach ourselves and our children that this these minutes have basically value unfortunately we teaching our kids how to kill the time
and nothing can kill their time or can put it in their head and in their mind and in their heart. There is no value for time like watching TV
there is nothing will teach your kids no value for time like watching TVs.
One movie after another
I'm basically for hours and hours and hours games. Sometimes I tell the kids a house there's no more watching Baba, we finish homework. Yeah, but it's not about homework only. It's about you know you can go do something beneficial.
Instead of just playing and watching TV and being in this virtual world, maybe you can go exercise outside, go play outside, but something will benefit you.
One of the things that I will highly recommend each and every one of us
in order for us to be able to utilize our time and money
Better Way number one always remember the value of time that every single second means something. The article Bill Murray aka Enter to level in Kakaako salani Rahim Allah surely he said that the heartbeat your heartbeat is reminding you that your life is nothing but a collection of minutes and seconds. every heartbeat it means you know what? That second you know that basic heartbeat reminding you every single second every single time in your life that you know what your life is just about it's a time and one day come and it will expire.
Remember that these days are basically your constant losses as they said. It'd be Masuda the alarm and said, Man I didn't I never regretted anything in my life. Never me Allah Yomi Naka Sophie here ohmori What is that fee here, Emily
and never regret anything in my life, like a day that I lost parts of my life. I lost parts of me. And I didn't add anything to me. I didn't add any good deeds to me to my to my record
in order to value time remember, it cannot be replaced.
Last step nimona. Sir, step rule
when the time of death comes, they cannot delay it for a second, when your time comes, it will it will not give you extra days.
You can take you can do that. Number three, that you will be asked about your time left as soon
as an algebra and geometry you will be asked about your life. Last time Subhana Allah ser la calidad de la somos de cada has an industry
deficit deficit was an area
in the Day of Judgment even it will show how many breaths you have taken in this life. And you will be asked about the time How did you utilize it?
One of them that make you understand the value of time. And no lie Europa.
Belle who tapa time will never stop for anyone
will never stop, keep going. And the time is just it's like a train. Either you ride or you miss it. That's why a man came to a scholar he want to argue this scholars just wasted the scholar time. So the scholar told him out of his shims. Yeah, I need to we need to read and honor our conditions. said you want me to argue with you stub the sun.
freeze the time so I can spend time arguing with you over this. Otherwise I have no time to waste with you.
Anyone major Alec to him at a seminar thing that make you value time.
And Nicolette Henry Mehta and colleagues emmonak well attended, he came home from work.
One of the things that really make you value time so much, you didn't know how much time left for you.
You really don't know how much time you'll I have one of my friend, my colleagues who studied with me high school.
Yesterday, I just get news that his son died in a car accident. young kid
you Didn't you think you're young to die, there is North America young to die.
You know, who knows who will go first. So we don't know exactly when we depart. That's why it's so important to take advantage of every moment of your life.
If you want to know how to utilize your time, good. Make sure that you have clear goals in your life.
I noticed that so many of us live many years of their life. And they don't have a dream. They don't have goals. I should actually I've seen worse than that. I have people living their life.
Okay, to make other people's goals happen to make other people's dream happen. They never get a chance to make their own dreams happen. Their own goal to take place.
Don't misunderstand me
about what I'm saying. It's a little bit controversial. But please don't misunderstand. I don't mean any bad.
thing I've seen people that live is to, for example, fulfill their children's dream.
They're all wives dream,
their husband's dream
and they forget about their own dream. You can have a joint dream
But also you have something for you you want it's not trying Don't say I don't like when when somebody said, Oh, I did to get in my life for my kids. Okay, that's good. But what about you? There is no contradiction. Because if you don't have a life, you cannot give a life. If you don't have your own dreams, you cannot fulfill other people's dreams. If you can't fulfill some of your dreams, how can I expect you to be successful with others as well?
How can you be bring happiness to others while yourself isn't another happy? And don't please, you know, don't do you know make these lines and dramas and sub obras that you watch? Oh, I can sacrifice my own happiness for others. This good lines for soap operas and dramas. But the reality is if you really want to make people happy, you have to be happy yourself. If you want other people to successful you to be successful yourself.
There's no contradiction
So it is so important for you to learn how to have goals and then dreams and to fulfill them and to basically pursue them. And the more you have clear goals in life, the more you will be able to utilize your time.
The man who knows the road goes full speed.
The man who knows the road goes full speed. But the person who doesn't know the road will never be able to go full speed. The man the person who has a clear goal will go full speed.
But the person who don't have a goal will not be able to do so. I asked him last panel to and I am finally Akuma semana por mas de cemento Mostafa LA
and hamdulillah salat wa salam Ana Molina via via one of the things that I found is very helpful as well on this matter. Using technology. Modern technology can save you a lot of time,
he tried to use your lies in your advantage. Also using your money. One of the best things about being in my opinion about being rich or having money is that save you time, money can be a very good servant, learn how to delegate, learn how to basically share responsibilities, even learn how these skills helped me a lot to manage your time. I hope this is not intended to be a crash course about time management. But I hope that I was able to create an awareness, something that we think about something we you know what, when an hour goes, or two hours go two days goes by, and I don't see myself improved in many different areas of mine, when I see my lust is still long lasting things not
done yet. There's something wrong in my life, I need to change.
Before I end on a walk down, I can't leave this place. without mentioning two things quickly.
The massacre that taking place in Syria these days. And
I don't know if you remember or not. But in the beginning of the Syrian conflict.
It was from alta shalltear.
Which has never been to Syria before. But from my little understanding that a lot of Sharpie is just there is a major street separate place from Damascus. It's not like another city or anything like that. Just like kind of suburb.
We're outside the skirt of the city.
So it's like technically you can consider a part of Damascus.
In from that place, was the first demonstration who came out of that place.
basically going to one of the squares in Damascus, and that were basically the regime killed hundreds of them and did not allow that. Basically the ministration to take place.
I place has a lot of history.
And we cannot just pass by these days not trim at least the AFI that we know that there is people that every day dying, they're not by 10s but hundreds of them.
kids and families and olders and young men and young women are targeted for no reason be except that people they want to have a decent life.
But basic rights
that we have for grant and we grateful and thankful a lot for it. But we feel bad for our brothers and sisters. So the least we have to mention
So we pray for them. And we include them in our app, we donate for the causes that are the organization that can help. And I'm not, I want to tell you that I'm not sure if, if the money that you donate to certain organizations suddenly will go to those particular group, I doubt that.
But if it had been, and there is basically tools to reach to the people, or the refugee who comes out of that place to be helped through the right channels, it will be something we can do.
We can share their stories with others on our social media, creating awareness in the society, about to them.
Like, and that was my second point, like this mass shooting that took place in Florida, in our hearts when for these kids.
She knew what injustice anywhere.
It shouldn't hurt, it's the hearts of the believers.
Innocent people killed, it doesn't matter how I'm by who it's wrong thing to happen.
But it's what's not right.
Then when it comes to this area, America comes only
as the only country are the only people can be grieved over.
But other people or parts of the world will not. The poor Egyptian soldiers who killed in the desert of Sinai also should be weep over there down
the poor. You know, Yemenis
who also innocent people who cut in the middle of that Civil War, we should feel sad for the death of the innocent people in Yemen, or in Iraq, or in Syria, or in any place in the world.
And we have to have that feeling that we say no to injustice, no to killing.
My brothers and sisters.
I remember a few years back, we wrote a letter from this community. In regard to the issue of the gun. Yes, I understand the Second Amendment and the importance of it. Now I'm going to turn this to political thing, because there's no time for it. I understand the personal responsibility for each individual and gun owner. But also I understand that is a collective responsibilities that is upon the society and upon the government as well. In Texas, it's like Florida. If you are 18 years old, you can't buy you can't rent a car, you need to be 25 years old to rent a car in Texas. But you can purchase an AR 15
an assault gun.
It is really sad.
At this way better than Florida, you can buy a handgun, I think on the age of 18. Here,
I decide. I'm being sarcastic.
So this is another thing that we wrote about and I hope maybe we can rewrite it again to the Congress to read to ask them and encourage them to look into this issue since this debate coming back now to the country
with a large number of people that dying that we have since January 49 mass shooting incidents in the country 49
over 90 people killed.
So I asked Allah subhanaw taala to help us and this is a role that we have as a citizen to put and to express our opinion about this issue to our representative. And I'm saying this because election also coming so we make sure that this is will be something that you will look at when we choose the candidate that we want to represent us. ask Allah Subhana Allah to keep our families safe, our communities safe and to keep all people safe around the world. I asked Allah Subhana Allah to protect the innocent, and to stop the oppressors from abusing others and oppressing others.
