Success is the sign of Muslim and this life is a goal that every Muslim won't achieve in a Naja Shia Muslim, in the Naja shadow Muslim whadda foofy Howdy, Daniela here akhira. It is our goal in this world we live and the next. It is our goal in this world, the life and next we hear the call to success every day in our life. Not once, not twice, actually, minimum 15 times a day. You hear it and according to some other have some school of thoughts among the Muslim jurists jurisprudence, a jurist they will say 20 times in the US than in the economy, hey alfalfa, hay alfalfa inone down to smell Hamza, Tasha Ramallah Barack Obama in the

00:03:41--> 00:03:45

extra extra min Daddy, internationally in America philleo me well, even

00:03:46--> 00:04:36

if this doesn't mean anything to us as Muslims that we caught we hear the call to success every day, to be successful in this life, and to be successful in the hereafter as well from an inadequate agenda for podfest the ultimate success to be saved from the Hellfire and to enter Paradise, that will be the ultimate success that a person with can ever achieve. But also you have to be a successful person in your life. You have to be a successful student in your study. You have to be a successful spouse when it comes to your relationship with your spouse, we have to have a successful family. We have to have as we have to be a successful father, a successful mother, a successful

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

child when it comes to her a daughter and a son. When it comes to our family relationships. You have to be a successful Dahlia in your call. And you should be a successful employee, a successful businessman as successful, whatever profession that you have in this life. Success should be something should be something we

00:05:00--> 00:05:15

Strive for in all our life in all aspects of our life. And in this hotbar I would like to share with you some principles for success in order for you to be a successful person and who want to be a loser.

00:05:16--> 00:05:48

mentality regioni akuna hasura kulu the agenda luckily Naja, also only barely half he had the hidden agenda, these principles of success, if you remember them, if you practice them, if you start now not tomorrow, now not later on, I guarantee you inshallah, Tada. That success will be something easy to be achieved. And you will not be among those who feel that they are losers. They don't complex much in this life.

00:05:49--> 00:06:04

first principle, I want to have him Abadi and Amanda masala Eva will. That was a very well, in fact very well fashion. Lisa didn't do well in the GI Bill who assign your own.

00:06:06--> 00:06:55

One of the first principle we should know, we should realize, we should learn that the challenges in life, the difficulties that we see in our life, the mistakes we make in our life. And even when we fail sometimes this is it never was the enemy of success. It doesn't mean that you're not a successful person or a person cannot achieve success. As a matter of fact, these are these are elements to help you to achieve success. They meant by Allah subhanho wa Taala to make you grow strong, to make you able to learn from your mistakes out of from your failure from your hardship and to learn how to do better in the next time, how to meet your challenges in a stronger way and to be

00:06:55--> 00:07:43

able to overcome them. That's part of our believers Muslim. Introduce me Nikita to assume that you will Gemma Futaba, Qatari and Allah Allah, Allah Allah and in La Jolla, la part of our belief that everything Allah decreed upon us something we like or we don't something it will be make our life easier or maybe putting us in a hardship it intend for you to be to tend to be good for you. Allah subhanho wa Taala is the source of all goodness, he never intended to evil, or shovel a lake while hydrophobia de subhanak The Evil will never be attributed to Allah subhanho wa Taala so whatever calamity whatever hardship that you go through it, Allah subhana wa Taala intend through it to make

00:07:43--> 00:08:06

you stronger person to make you a better person. I always give this example of the most expensive piece of rock in the face of this big rock the earth, which is the Black Diamond, and also one of the cheapest rock that you can ever find on the face of this earth. It will be charcoal, the charcoal in Allah, Allah God

00:08:07--> 00:08:08

who

00:08:10--> 00:08:13

must have soda while hustle Ha.

00:08:14--> 00:09:01

Rama and Natasha Kiba Hamamoto, Baba Kenya a chemical is from a chemical perspective, they are exactly made from the same elements, the black diamond and the charcoal. The only different make this one is very expensive piece of rock. And the other one very cheap, is the structure of the Black Diamond different than the structure of this structure of the Black Diamond made it evil to resist pressure versus the charcoal with any type of pressure, you will break it you will basically destroyed it, versus the black dime. That's example exactly like you which one you would like to be you would like to be to that one who resists pressure. So you will be valuable like the Black

00:09:01--> 00:09:11

Diamond, or you want to be someone who cannot resist pressure cannot take challenges in life. So you always live cheap, like the piece of charcoal, my brothers and sisters.

00:09:13--> 00:09:14

These

00:09:15--> 00:09:59

challenges, these difficulties in life, these mistakes that we do during the course of our life. If we take them in a positive manner, if we take them in a positive attitude, we will learn a lot from them and would allow us to grow bigger and stronger, bigger and stronger. Once I read a story of a simple farmer had a empty well in his farm. And he had a very dear goat to him. It's like a pet for him and for his for his children. One day the goat fall into the dry well, and it's a deep quite deep one. And he thought that the goat is dead. So he decided to close the well.

00:10:00--> 00:10:09

brought a lot of sand to basically bury the goat inside the well, and to put sand inside the wall, so no one ever gets hurt again.

00:10:10--> 00:11:00

And he starts shoveling with the dirt, throwing it in the well. But the moment the sand hit the back of that goat, the goat wasn't dead, was just fall unconscious. So waking up and realizing what happened that he burying the goat alive. So every time we would throw dirt on the back of that goat, the goat will shake it off, and we'll jump above the dirt and the sand. And he keep throwing the dirt one after another. And she shrugged it off, and she jumped over the dirt. Until all of a sudden he thought that he buried the goat. But indeed, he have risen the goat, the goat did not give up to that dirt that goes and fall on its back and try to bury their life. No, it actually used it to

00:11:00--> 00:11:41

climb higher, and to survive. And that's the challenges of your life. If you let all these difficulties, all these problems in life, burying your life, you will be buried in the bottom of that well. But if you will take these challenges and use it in your advantage and use it to make you stronger to be a stronger person, I guarantee you, you will be in the top of your game. And you will be in the head of your life and in control of your life. Brothers and sisters, remember when you write when you write any airplanes, airplanes, they will never fly with the wind, they only fly against the wind. And that's what the only thing will allow you to grow and to fly high. When you

00:11:41--> 00:11:46

challenge these challenges of life and write these difficulties in life.

00:11:47--> 00:11:48

Brothers and sisters,

00:11:50--> 00:12:36

these difficulties as I said, it's always an opportunity for us. I made one such short study about the most successful companies in the world. And there's one common factors between them. One common factors between them, actually, it can goes also to so many of us successful people in life, you will see that all of them in the beginning of the life. They were born, they were initiated. This started in a time of difficulties in a time like we living in today, where there is so much going on globally, so much going on in the word and you think it's a very hard time to success for me as an individual, for me as a nation for me as a oma, as we talk about our community or national level or

00:12:36--> 00:13:01

internationally as a Muslim, but I believe there's so much opportunity for us out there. And believe me, Allah knows exactly how much pressure you can take. You tell a nurse Imani Allah subhanaw taala tests people according to their ability to their Eman to their faith. Allah knows exactly how much you can take and he gave you one step after another to make you grow stronger and bigger.

00:13:02--> 00:13:40

So Principle number one, don't ever make the challenges and the difficulties of your life, a reason for you to quit, it's the reason for you to dig your heels in and to say I will stand the course and I will push forward. Number two, success is based on what Allah have give about your ability to use what Allah has given your life. In the Naja muthambi erotica is defined as a father to me and my wife and Matthew wahaca these talents that Allah subhanaw taala have given us Allah subhanaw taala said, What Allahu Allah Harajuku

00:13:42--> 00:13:42

lupone

00:13:47--> 00:13:47

Muna

00:13:49--> 00:13:51

Gianna Kumu son,

00:13:54--> 00:13:58

Allah brought you out of your mother rooms, no nothing all of us equal to that.

00:13:59--> 00:14:43

All of us. Do you think a person like me Mama Shafi or Mr. Malik, alima hanifa came out of his mother's womb saying Miss Allah, although Buhari came over from her mother's womb, saying had definitely he came out of his mother's womb like you crying like you know nothing like you. Do you think almost successful people you name it in this world in life or another came out of their mother rooms, knows much they are we are we start exactly the same. What makes the different and what is going to happen next. Allah Subhana Allah Allah said, I brought you out of your mother's womb, all of you knows nothing. I may give you the tools to acquire knowledge. I give you the tools to acquire

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

success. I give you eyes, I give you ear I give you heart I give you a sound mind and it depends how much you're going to use it. All these talents that you have, are gifts from Allah to you, how you use it, how you use it. It is your gift, back

00:15:00--> 00:15:11

Allah subhanho wa Taala there is so many of us gifted, there is so many of us gifted, but unfortunately so many of us, we have not opened our packages yet.

00:15:12--> 00:15:13

My brothers and sisters,

00:15:15--> 00:15:38

one of also the verses that I like to always share in regard to this point, using your gift, what Allah Subhana Allah said about Adam, when the angel said, why would you create what do you put him in the earth? They will fight one another? What was the response of Allah subhanaw taala to the angels, he said, about you, about you, human about us. He said in the

00:15:39--> 00:16:27

demo, I know what you don't know. That's why I always believe in you. And you should always believe in yourself the ability to achieve great success in this dunya and that what Allah said, I know about them what you don't know, I know that we can achieve so much even though the might you might think yourself limited with so many obstacles, or maybe limited with so many challenges in life. Number three, success is based cheer is based on a very important concept. We call it an exam in manager Mr. puppet on demand. When you when you do that, when you do something, not only good, but great. There is a big difference between the two attitude. I just want to be good. I just want to be

00:16:27--> 00:16:38

a good husband. I just want to be a good students. I just want to be a good basically, businessman, I want to be a good massage. You want to be good or do you want to be a great

00:16:39--> 00:17:03

that's a big difference between the two attitude success and depends depends on depends on your ability to do more than just good enough. The difference between failure and success is doing a thing nearly right and doing it exactly right. God What if differentiate between success and failure in Allahu

00:17:04--> 00:17:55

Allah loves those who have their son, Allah subhanho wa sallam said in the LA catabolic Santa Ana cliche, Allah prescribed a son to do things in a perfect manner, in a great way to do to the maximum of your ability, Don't slack, don't let things go. Don't say you know, and I'm not gonna do it. To be 100% 50% is good. No, that's not the attitude of the Muslim. And that's not the attitude of those who want to achieve success. A commit a commitment to excellence that will enable you to attain the success you seek my brothers and sisters. That's why even in salaat with a lot of talk about the salon, he put the highest standard. After the honeymoon and Medina home fee Salatin hace route you

00:17:55--> 00:17:58

achieved the highest level of assurance in the salaat.

00:17:59--> 00:18:27

One of the meaning of being great and assign in your work, the ability to focus, don't be all over the place. Focus because that will enable you to achieve excellence in your work. One of it is to be specialized. That Superman mentality doesn't work in the madman exam at the hustles a turkeys alpha versus alpujarra Allah, Allah Dhawan

00:18:29--> 00:18:33

also the ability to continue continuously doing the thing

00:18:34--> 00:18:36

and Naja Kareena Saba

00:19:13--> 00:19:58

in Amman nostro Masada, the prophets of Salaam said victory will be achieved with sub being patient, while also the Indian insanity because all of you losers except those who have good faith, good deeds remind each other with the help and they remind each other to be patient. being patient will give you the ability to have self control. If you have suffered, it will give you the time to think before you act. If you have suffered, it will make you a person see the big picture not to rush to a decision in life just because you see Yeah. And you have a short video. A sub one of the meaning the beautiful meaning of sub it means your ability to adjust to the new situation, to adjust yourself to

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

the new situation to love whatever

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

happening if what you wish or do you want didn't happen to you?

00:20:05--> 00:20:13

brothers sisters, the next principle is has to do with your attitude with life in an agenda murtabak.

00:20:15--> 00:21:01

America, America, it all depends about your attitude towards life. The big things is not what happened. What happens to us in life, but what we do about what happened to us in life? That's the big question that you ask yourself. It's all about your attitude. how you deal. How do you deal with life, how you deal with the thing that goes or happen to you in your daily life? The most important question to ask on the job when some brother told me shareholding, I'm thinking about taking this job taking this career taking this path versus what do you think? I see, when you go to interview what you ask most of the people and think about job about career in life, they only think about what

00:21:01--> 00:21:38

they're going to get, okay, what are you going to be able, and I think the best things is not not the most important to ask what I am getting from this career, not what I'm getting from this path, or from this job. I think the most important question to ask yourself, What am I becoming? If I choose this path, what I will be if I choose this path, something to think about this the attitude of a successful people, I pity. I pity the man who inherit millions of dollars, but he isn't a millionaire. There's people that wealth, grow,

00:21:39--> 00:21:41

their information grow.

00:21:42--> 00:21:46

They never grow themselves as people. They don't grow as humans.

00:21:47--> 00:22:13

That's why present positive mental attitude. It's one of the most important element in success in life. focus in what you are good at, not what the thing that you don't know how to do it good. focus on building not destroying, focusing in providing solution not only criticizing the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us about this, he said, Man, Allah, Allah can nurse for who

00:22:14--> 00:22:14

were very wire

00:22:16--> 00:22:17

or for who

00:22:18--> 00:22:32

Yeah, and he the first one it means if you all people bad, you the worst, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and if you say all people bad, you really make them bad. It's all about your attitude, how you see life, how you see people,

00:22:33--> 00:22:43

one of the principal also, I would like to remind myself on my brother and sisters about it, that success will not be achieved by words. In manager

00:22:44--> 00:22:48

let me learn a bit German would have been

00:22:50--> 00:22:50

would have been

00:22:53--> 00:23:35

lengthen G. Amira and Naja success will not be ever achieved by your dreams, by your wishes, by your words, by your thoughts. success comes before work only in the dictionary. success comes before work only in the dictionary, not in the life. He lives success will only achieve after hard work. You have to be brave. You have to be very brave, you have to challenge yourself. You have to trust yourself. Always. I always tell those people who sit Yeah, I'm not have that courage to talk about. I always say conquer your fear, by your actions by your action

00:23:37--> 00:23:45

to just what others say you can do. And you will never pay attention again, to the limitation that they put for you.

00:23:47--> 00:24:36

Just two days ago, I went to the friend here in Malaysia, to one of the islands in Malaysia. When we like in the boat go into the island was asking myself where are we going I lost sight of the shore and it's just an open ocean. And finally we arrived this beautiful island beautiful place. And I said to myself, if people like me in the beginning, always afraid to lose sight of the show. We will never discover new places we will never discover beautiful places can be a destination for so many people to go enjoy themselves. Those who speaks a lot and talk little those who only cares about the outside those who talk about titles and they don't care about real actions. How do I live enough

00:24:36--> 00:24:39

ethically Monica Tirana, aka Lena

00:24:41--> 00:24:46

Dunham, Emmanuel aloha serene as a matter of min

00:24:48--> 00:24:57

min maracas Mooney This is disease in Islam, defined clearly in the Quran as a hypocrisy, hypocrisy.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

Brothers, sisters, you

00:25:00--> 00:25:11

cannot ever build reputation and what you are going to do. You can't you only build your reputation and what you have done, according to Mostafa law

00:25:18--> 00:25:22

at hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala Milena be about that.

00:25:23--> 00:25:29

I know in this audience there are so many young people, students pursuing knowledge.

00:25:31--> 00:25:37

And that's why it is very important for you to know what are the principles in life.

00:25:39--> 00:25:54

You know, in universities, we study then we take we learn, then we take tests, but outside the wall of the universities, we take tests that we learn in real life,

00:25:55--> 00:25:58

success in your life, in real life,

00:26:00--> 00:26:17

or success in life in general, based on your ability to plan very well adapted to Jade minahan, our Milena, Jacqueline Hart, good planning, it is something very essential to achieve success

00:26:18--> 00:26:53

and good planning it means you know where exactly you want to go, what exactly you want to be. Don't waste so many years of your life and you don't know what you want to be. It's about time now to pause maybe after this look, but say what I want to achieve. And in order for you to know where do you want to go? You need to know where you stand. There is point A and point B. I notice in my life, a lot of people they don't know where they stand, they don't even know what's point A and I'm not even talking about point B yet. Then after that you need to define how you can achieve point B

00:26:54--> 00:26:59

good planning it means your ability to give yourself multiple choices how you achieve your goal.

00:27:01--> 00:27:02

Yeah, tell me da da

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

da

00:27:05--> 00:27:11

da da da da da da wahida attempted to say Allah Masha, Allah,

00:27:12--> 00:27:24

Allah, Allah, Allah we are. All this principle your ability to put your priorities to be clear and have a clear vision. the right timing consulting will allow you to plan perfectly.

00:27:26--> 00:27:36

brothers and sister if you don't know where you are going, then most likely you will end up somewhere else. As easy as that as simple as that.

00:27:38--> 00:27:50

Look at the Prophet sallallahu Sallam planning for planning for his Dawa. You want to be successful even in your relationship with the Quran? You want to enjoy ramadan ramadan is coming soon.

00:27:51--> 00:28:16

Have you wrote what is our Have you have a plan for how this Ramadan will be different than any other amount in your life? Did you ever thought about dealing with Ramadan with this attitude you want to be successful in Ramadan, apply this put a plan say I want to achieve Ramadan 123 goals and I'm going to achieve them from one to three methods. Put applying don't just wait until Hey, tomorrow's Ramadan Mashallah let's go pray.

00:28:17--> 00:28:29

And that's about it. You want to be successful plan to the thing before you act. Also, one of the things that it helps you a lot to be successful in your life to choose a good role model.

00:28:31--> 00:28:36

And there is nothing better than Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to be our role model,

00:28:37--> 00:28:43

the modeling those who are already successful, it will give you the sense of

00:28:44--> 00:28:57

probability. And it's not also a bad idea to have other role models. That's why the Sahaba role models, the MBR role models, the successful people will models for you in your life and so on.

00:28:59--> 00:29:01

And also one of the principal I would like to say

00:29:04--> 00:29:12

have self confidence, self assurance, the greatest barrier to success is the fear of failure

00:29:14--> 00:29:36

to wish you or someone else it's just such a waste. Because you wasting the person you are you cannot be better than you who you are. That's why Believe in yourself, have confidence in yourself and walk with your head up high no arrogance, but with confidence. My brothers and sisters

00:29:37--> 00:29:52

so many marriages I so fall apart because there is no self confidence in both sides. So many business fall apart because the person who started have no confidence so many students didn't achieve success because they have no self confidence.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

And the last principle that I want to share on that will make 10 of them. I want you to know the success

00:30:00--> 00:30:18

As a man or woman, I mean a lot of soldier. Success is a is a bounty from Allah bestowed upon you. It's a gift from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to you will not be commitment in criminal law. Any success to achieve it is from Allah subhanho wa Taala Adam, don't be like our own

00:30:20--> 00:30:35

Monday, I got all this wealth because I'm so smart. I'm so good. No, that's not. That's how success achieved success always by returning to Las Vegas and thanking him when in Chicago as he didn't know. If you are thankful to me, I will give you more.

00:30:36--> 00:30:44

brothers and sister turn to Allah, the One who grant success and ask him for more success to you for you in your life.

00:30:45--> 00:31:40

In the end, I would like to say I really believe in you. I've seen your country I've visited so far part of your university on a see a shining face in this gathering beautiful faces Mashallah folding shallow with a man. And I wanted you to know that me personally, I believe in you. I believe you can be the successful students that you want to be the successful spouse that you should be a successful parents, a successful businessman, a successful engineer, a successful scholar. I believe that you will succeed in facing all the challenges that you're facing today in your life. I believe that you can overcome all difficulties in your life today.
