00:00:00--> 00:00:04

smilla salatu salam ala rasulillah bada

00:00:05--> 00:00:06

bada bada

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

bada can feed

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

the muscle after

00:00:18--> 00:00:19

the Vietnam era

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

As salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:29--> 00:00:38

I bear witness to the loss of habitat as the only one worthy of worship and Mohammed Salah live audio cylinders last and final messenger.

00:00:41--> 00:00:55

My dear brothers and sisters, I'm so glad and happy to be with you this night, a blessed night, this blessed night of Ramadan, this the night of the 16th of Ramadan in 2012.

00:00:57--> 00:00:58

And I know

00:00:59--> 00:01:11

that there is nothing more beloved to Allah Subhana Allah Allah. During this month, the month of Ramadan, more than reciting the book of philosophy

00:01:12--> 00:01:26

reading in the slot or outside the slot, and Allah subhanho wa Taala used to send debri to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam every at each Ramadan to review with him.

00:01:28--> 00:01:39

Every year he will go over the top Koran with the prophets Allah Allah you audio senders once during Ramadan, except the last year of the prophet SAW someone's life.

00:01:40--> 00:02:20

He reviewed the Quran read the Quran with him twice. And because of that particular Hadith, where the profits are celeb used to read the whole on top of debris during Ramadan and read them myself and read them I said it's ordained for us. It is more deign for us. It's even encouraged for us to read the whole entire for an during the month of Ramadan. During the month of Ramadan. There is a great amount of the name of your zipline as well as great scholars among the successes he used to make up in the Koran every six nights.

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

But this is outside Ramadan.

00:02:25--> 00:02:34

During the whole entire year, every six to six days or every six days, he make one Hartmann every six days He finished the

00:02:36--> 00:02:41

start he will finish the four on every three days he will make one heartbeat

00:02:42--> 00:02:52

every three days you will make it and when the last 10 days of Ramadan start in the last 10 days from a start, he will make comfortable every night.

00:02:53--> 00:02:56

every single month, he will make one photo

00:02:57--> 00:03:06

and remember Shafi Amata Allah used to make optimal Quran in the last 10 days of Ramadan every single night he will make one photo

00:03:07--> 00:03:33

some people might say yes chef How does God's Will the headed individual allow them when he said you should not read the whole and talk for less than three days and less than three days an email that would have been handed to him Allah answered this and he said he said that this heading is meant is not going to be a habit yummy don't make it like a habit

00:03:34--> 00:03:55

because you will not understand unless you are in a place or a time that's so special so special and you want to take full advantage of it certainly case like this it will be permissible for you to read the whole on top for even less than three nights or three days.

00:03:56--> 00:04:04

That demand a budget rahimullah said such as your Mecca. And it's been reported so many scholars when they

00:04:06--> 00:04:25

are in one day 24 hours less than 24 hours and Ramadan the last 10 days of Ramadan because like later so if you finish the fuck man one night and happen to be live as if you have read the whole on top of more than 100,000 months, 1000 months.

00:04:26--> 00:04:29

It means 83 plus years.

00:04:30--> 00:04:31

Can you imagine?

00:04:32--> 00:04:35

83 years how many days in 83 years?

00:04:37--> 00:04:37

A lot.

00:04:40--> 00:04:41

Can you do the math

00:04:44--> 00:04:53

30 times 1000 30,000. So 30,000 plus days? That's right. So it is equal to 30,000 plus customers

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

out

00:05:00--> 00:05:07

Read the read from the Quran. As the Father of later today, everything is multiplied by more than 1000 month.

00:05:10--> 00:05:31

So that's why I said in a such occasion, that's why you will see a large number of setups on it used to make up on your side, I encourage myself and all my brothers and all my sisters, to make this really the month of put on and to dedicate our self toward this book, the book of philosophy.

00:05:32--> 00:05:33

I know some

00:05:34--> 00:05:54

some of you might say, Chef, I don't understand Arabic, I don't read Arabic. So my relationship with Iran is not that strong. And I would say it's nevertheless about how much you memorize how much you read. Whatever you know from the Quran, make sure that your relationship with that part of the Quran is very strong.

00:05:56--> 00:06:21

and encouraged encouraged to increase it a little bit more. Maybe during this Ramadan, you will be able to add one more surah to readings. Just a small, maybe two, three lines. Because some of you some of us, some of us, me, I want us to be in before even though my topic, I want to make sure that this issue settled. Some of us last year we have the same excuse.

00:06:22--> 00:06:29

And I'm sure if it is among us, among us, people who did not increased a bet.

00:06:31--> 00:06:38

When it comes to the bar, the exact amount of verses from law students the exact amount of persons you know this year, if it's nothing less

00:06:40--> 00:06:45

why a whole entire year you want to tell me you will not be able to memorize one more line.

00:06:47--> 00:06:51

But you know what happened? We just got this conference and I cannot read Arabic I cannot read.

00:06:52--> 00:06:55

And I keep going keep going years and years and years.

00:06:58--> 00:07:07

I think the point is because that issue is not something burning us. It's not something like I really care so much about and that's the reality No matter how much you say.

00:07:11--> 00:07:36

There is a deconstruction Buhari a man who lost love to him, not because he read the whole top of every night, not because he read and he memorized so much verses from the Quran, only because he memorized and he read after one surah most of us memorize it, which is Allah. Allah subhanaw taala told Mohammed Salim to tell them that Allah loves them for that, for that surah.

00:07:38--> 00:07:58

From this headings, we learned a very important lesson. It is not about how much you memorize. It's about how much you care about how much you care about the verses that you already memorized, or you know, you're familiar with how much you didn't love it, how much you didn't live in it, how much you really feel connected to it.

00:07:59--> 00:08:03

It's one surah have made this among the successful one.

00:08:05--> 00:08:17

Yes, I'm here to talk to you about success. But let me start by saying the real meaning of success, the real meaning of success is to be among the successful one in the Day of Judgment.

00:08:19--> 00:08:19

For

00:08:28--> 00:08:37

those of us who save them from the Hellfire and lock them into paradise, they are the winners, the real winners.

00:08:39--> 00:08:40

They are the successful one

00:08:42--> 00:08:47

in Tallinn, tonight I was reading my master and sort of

00:08:48--> 00:08:49

quantum mechanics

00:08:51--> 00:08:51

only

00:08:53--> 00:08:53

bill

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

and levena

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

dunia What

00:09:09--> 00:09:12

do you want to know about the greatest losers in history?

00:09:13--> 00:09:18

So much everything they have done a lot of good things, if indeed they are

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

going astray.

00:09:21--> 00:09:30

And all what they have done means nothing and that means nothing in the last hours, with nothing in the skill of the Day of Judgment. And I said

00:09:31--> 00:09:51

tonight early in the night today. Tonight, I said to my community, I said one of the meanings of this verse for so many people whose Junior they work hard, they earned degrees, they made money. They made houses they made my beautiful family, beautiful spouse and wonderful kids and I made it I became successful.

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

But he comes into the Day of Judgment. All these ones can await in the day and your skill to deal with you can tell by the way I made $300,000

00:10:02--> 00:10:15

Dealing is gonna wait anything in your skills on the Day of Judgment, you think is gonna wait to anything in your skill today of judgment, your degrees, your whatever, you have nothing, this isn't the dunya and you get the rewards in the dunya for

00:10:17--> 00:10:27

you, you think I'm successful, I'm deaf and bright, and I'm not a very good person. And we know so many people, even sometimes

00:10:29--> 00:10:31

we think that the greatest successes

00:10:33--> 00:10:40

means nothing. Yes. They thought they were great in the dunya. They're successful. But indeed, they're not.

00:10:42--> 00:10:51

You know, there is a story of a boat in the middle of the lake. And you know, the guy who, like, manage the boat.

00:10:52--> 00:10:55

One guy told him, Hey, what kind of education you have. He said,

00:10:58--> 00:11:05

I really don't have much education. He said, You know what, I have a PhD in physics, kind of so much, blah, blah, blah.

00:11:06--> 00:11:19

And then the guy said, so What school did you go to? He said, I didn't go to school, I didn't get chance. My family raised me outside a farm and it was pretty simple person said, You know what, I have a degree in

00:11:20--> 00:11:24

chemistry, I know, all these elements. And

00:11:26--> 00:11:28

the guy said, okay, whatever.

00:11:29--> 00:11:42

He takes them for just the third person who said, So what kind of like, talents and like, what kind of science that you know, so I don't know, science. You know, I'm a geek,

00:11:43--> 00:11:45

computer guys, scientist.

00:11:46--> 00:11:51

And they start making fun of him because he doesn't know anything. So the book starts sinking.

00:11:54--> 00:12:03

So the city has to jump up, and there is no life jackets or anything like that. So three of them, they said, but we didn't know how to swim. He said we had let your degrees help you

00:12:06--> 00:12:14

learn. So what I'm trying to say I'm not trying ever to put down degrees success, money being successful person.

00:12:15--> 00:12:23

I would love it would have been to be successful. But what I really don't want this to apply to any one of us in La Jolla.

00:12:25--> 00:12:27

dounia. Jacqueline,

00:12:28--> 00:12:35

oh hates every single one who is so knowledgeable of dystonia, and so ignorant about the ACA.

00:12:36--> 00:12:45

That's what I don't want anyone to be. Make sure that you know, very well educated wallmounted you have so much information about the dunya that will come to the

00:12:47--> 00:12:49

US here. You're like a first grade.

00:12:52--> 00:12:53

That's unacceptable.

00:12:55--> 00:12:58

Success is the month this is the month of success.

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

This is the month of

00:13:03--> 00:13:09

the month of success. You know, we as Muslims are what call us

00:13:10--> 00:13:16

towards success every day. Have you noticed in the Adana must have put

00:13:18--> 00:13:19

heavier emphasis?

00:13:23--> 00:13:33

What that means, come to success. Come to six, you hear this every day, 15 times. And if you're happy 20 times.

00:13:43--> 00:13:45

Hang on to success.

00:13:47--> 00:13:54

Have you ever thought about why I'm not calling upon us to success? He wanted to be a successful one.

00:13:55--> 00:13:58

That's why I would love to see in our community in our society.

00:13:59--> 00:13:59

In here,

00:14:00--> 00:14:04

the successful spouse who have a very successful family,

00:14:06--> 00:14:21

honestly, among us, a successful parents who successfully know how to communicate with teams who successfully can build a strong ties and relationship when they're with each other and with their children's.

00:14:23--> 00:14:30

I wanted to say I'm a successful Father, I'm a successful mother. I have a good relationship with my parents with my kids.

00:14:31--> 00:14:32

Successful

00:14:33--> 00:14:45

a successful girl and a successful boy who can proudly say you know what, I will have your problems. I have very good relationship with my parents. I know how whenever I need something, I know how to communicate with them very well.

00:14:47--> 00:14:50

I want you to be a successful students

00:14:51--> 00:14:57

00:15:13--> 00:15:20

00:15:22--> 00:15:23

She's even higher.

00:15:25--> 00:15:28

I want you to be a successful Dahlia,

00:15:46--> 00:15:50

And this is good. Yeah, any proof that

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

we have this large number of people.

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

My show

00:15:58--> 00:16:02

I want you to be a successful businessman and a businesswoman.

00:16:05--> 00:16:08

I want to talk about the concept of success in this journey.

00:16:11--> 00:16:29

And the principle that I will give tonight can apply to anything. I want to read this successfully be able to memorize the Quran successfully to be able to achieve any goal that you have in life. So these are very unique, generic

00:16:32--> 00:16:36

rules and principles that I hope it will help us

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

to achieve success in this dunya. And after as well.

00:16:42--> 00:16:43

I want to start by saying

00:16:45--> 00:16:55

first point I would like to say that don't ever think. Don't ever think that challenges that Allah Subhana Allah, make you go through

00:16:56--> 00:17:20

the difficulties that you have to face in your life. If you're going through certain difficulties or hardship, or a challenge in your life, I want you to know for sure 100% that it's not ever This is not the opposite of success. That's not the enemy of success. mistakes, failures, hardship.

00:17:21--> 00:17:25

A lot of people think that they are the enemy of success, but isn't at all.

00:17:26--> 00:17:32

You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it.

00:17:34--> 00:17:36

You know, I always say that we call

00:17:38--> 00:17:48

good things that happen to our life, panties and on any bad things happened to me in my life, I felt experience. I was building experience in life.

00:17:50--> 00:18:24

Part of what we believe is movement as a believers as additional jamara that everything Allah decreed upon us, it is for our best interest for our best interest. That's why maybe some of them said whatever happened to you, you have two options, either to read or to be content and to know to seek the wisdom behind it and have fun and rob the federal law. If you content and you satisfy your initial location and acceptance of a loss decree upon you. Allah will make you satisfied content with your heart, woman

00:18:26--> 00:18:34

and anybody will basically act discouraged and will act with anger and bitterness the last panel Allah

00:18:35--> 00:18:38

Allah will make you angry and he will never achieve success.

00:18:39--> 00:18:42

Unless I told us in the locker

00:18:46--> 00:18:52

room, don't think ever does something bad. Yes, look back, but indeed it is good for you.

00:18:53--> 00:18:59

You might think it is back. But the loss of Haleakala brings so much good out of it out of it.

00:19:01--> 00:19:18

There is so many people went through hardship and calamities and the end very successful in their life. They end up very successful in their life. I just parked my car in the in the parking lot. And I come across this house when I see this cars Oh, remember the story.

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

I saw Honda. And always remember this man, Mr. Honda. His life isn't amazing. This guy was not has no degree in coming in mechanical engineering. He never studies caught or going to schools or anything like that. He used to work in a tow company. They told you the tow cars, you know, like so maybe something here. So a couple of minutes. I hope they're not towing people's car. But hey, you know, he used to work in a in a company like that. And one day he decided, you know, to come up with an idea what he invented. he invents something very interesting.

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

He invented a bicycle, and he puts on it a motor,

00:20:07--> 00:20:30

motorbike for something new. And this is because of the word of the war. At that time, there is no much gas and oil in Japan. So he invented this term as a means of transportation, that it became very popular, he start a small factory. But soon after the business start picking up, the factory was burned.

00:20:31--> 00:20:34

And to ashes, yes, to start from scratch.

00:20:36--> 00:21:08

And did build a big factory, he went through the business, it's a long story, but the point he was able to get in the hotel business, and after that went to another build a factory became big. And when the business started going better and better and better. The war destroyed his factory, just a bump, made him start from scratch again, for the third time. But the third time when he built the factory, he did not only focus in building motorbikes, he thought about cars.

00:21:10--> 00:21:26

And it became one of the leading company in the world today that so many people enjoy. Don't ever think that that's a bad thing for you to start with. With that challenges the boss might want to put it for that he never thought that's the end of it. He learned from

00:21:27--> 00:21:30

you ride this wave to carry you higher.

00:21:36--> 00:21:37

Sometimes

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

a stumble may prevent a fall.

00:21:44--> 00:21:45

preventable.

00:21:46--> 00:22:03

So sometimes I was able to put you in that hardship, just to make you ready for the next one. He want best free. And I don't know if you've heard me say this before. But I always use this example since I'm from Texas. And it's a true story about people living in the south.

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

You know, they used to love

00:22:07--> 00:22:12

to bring cod fish in reverse catfish growth. Anybody have an idea?

00:22:14--> 00:22:18

Where cod fish will be the Gulf of Mexico.

00:22:20--> 00:22:30

Yeah, cod fish live in a Cold War. So the cats from up north in Canada in Maine, and they bring it to Louisiana, Texas, they love it.

00:22:31--> 00:23:19

But by the time they burn, it's frozen. It's not fresh, nobody likes it. So they bring that one guy from the southern get a container and put all this fish and I'm bringing it but the time to arrive. It was so squishy. And it's not tasty at all, because it doesn't move the whole trip. So know what this guy did. He put in that tank or big tanker, he dropped the natural predators of the cod fish, which is catfish. He dropped three, four in the tape the whole time for the ad fish kit, every single competition that takes a life moving, alert. And even by the time they arrived into the summer, they were so fresh, because they are moving all the time. I always say sometimes a lot drop

00:23:19--> 00:23:22

in your wife, a couple of catfish.

00:23:23--> 00:23:27

Just to keep you alert to keep you fresh to keep you strong.

00:23:28--> 00:23:41

Not ever to make you doubt not to put you down. I was the parent the other one he put you through that test. It's to make you grow stronger not to grow weaker. That's why

00:23:42--> 00:23:43

you tell him

00:23:44--> 00:24:00

you will be tested according to your faith. Allah knows how much he can bear or knows how much he can take. But the more you're stronger, why he puts more pressure on you. Because the more you resist the pressure, the more valuable person you are.

00:24:04--> 00:24:36

The only reason the black diamonds is so expensive, so valuable because it has the ability to resist pressure. Otherwise, blood diamonds and charcoal are from the same route the same exactly elements. The only difference between the charter which is so cheap, and the than the black diamond is very expensive. That Black Diamond has the ability to resist pressure but the charcoal you can crush it with your hand. The moment you have the ability to resist pressure, you're a very valuable person and also kind of as us.

00:24:40--> 00:24:40

Number two

00:24:42--> 00:24:43

success

00:24:45--> 00:24:50

can be achieved by those who use the talents that love giving.

00:24:52--> 00:24:55

Without using and utilizing the tools. Every one of us

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

is unique like everybody else.

00:25:03--> 00:25:05

Every one of us is gift

00:25:06--> 00:25:07

isn't to tell us

00:25:09--> 00:25:10

what Allahu

00:25:18--> 00:25:21

Allah brought to you all from your mother room, nothing.

00:25:29--> 00:25:35

You will hear the ability to hear the ability to see and he gives you mind soundbar.

00:25:36--> 00:25:53

What that means, these are the town's This is the tools. If you use it, you will monster in the status of ignorant. You get out of your mother know nothing, but I'm gonna give you these tools so you can acquire the knowledge. What do you think Norman behati came from his mother's womb same.

00:25:55--> 00:26:00

Here was crying and screaming like you? Do you think he came out of his mother's saying?

00:26:03--> 00:26:06

No, he came a child like you

00:26:08--> 00:26:12

with a different that the utilize the downs with the law of giving them

00:26:14--> 00:26:22

you know, these towns are our gift to you. But unfortunately, so many of us have never opened their packages yet.

00:26:24--> 00:26:27

What do you do with this gift is your gift back to Allah?

00:26:30--> 00:26:38

Why you decide that so many of us have so much potential, so much talent. If it never was utilized, it never was done.

00:26:40--> 00:26:44

And people live and die with it. We don't try.

00:26:54--> 00:27:04

I've always believed that the difference between successful person and others is not the lack of the strength and not the lack of knowledge.

00:27:06--> 00:27:08

Rather than the lack of wealth.

00:27:10--> 00:27:14

If people don't have the determination, the wealth the power

00:27:15--> 00:27:18

to achieve and to utilize what I've given.

00:27:23--> 00:27:29

Because we can have more than what we have got. Because we always can be more than what we are today.

00:27:31--> 00:27:45

That's what I was told the angels remember this, about Adam, he said, in America, I know about other Mojito. I don't know that he's capable him and his children have so many things.

00:27:46--> 00:27:47

of so many things.

00:27:48--> 00:28:04

So I want you to believe in yourself and to believe in the talents and look for. And that's one of the most beautiful thing that I would love to see it in the massage in the in the active brothers and sisters who work with the youth work with the community

00:28:05--> 00:28:09

to explore the talents of the community.

00:28:10--> 00:28:21

I want you as a parent to explore the talents of your kids and support it and make it grow. Discover the town to the town to your husband.

00:28:22--> 00:28:24

You're never too old to find out.

00:28:25--> 00:28:26

It is so

00:28:27--> 00:28:32

wrong to die and these towns have never been used and utilize

00:28:33--> 00:28:36

success. The third principle

00:28:38--> 00:28:45

is based on a very important concept in Islamic called Alexa and

00:28:47--> 00:28:50

Alexa, it means to do things perfectly.

00:28:52--> 00:28:53

Absolutely correct.

00:28:54--> 00:28:57

You should ask yourself, Is it good or great?

00:28:58--> 00:29:09

You should ask yourself, do I just want to be a good or I want to be a great? They want to do things? I just did it. We're able to do it right? On a group directory.

00:29:10--> 00:29:13

Because the difference between failure and success.

00:29:14--> 00:29:22

Failure is doing things nearly right. But success doing it exactly right. That's right.

00:29:23--> 00:29:24

I mean if you

00:29:26--> 00:29:27

if there is a race

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

towards the final line, but you stopped 100 feet before that nearly nearly there, but you didn't even succeed.

00:29:39--> 00:29:40

That's why

00:29:41--> 00:29:53

one of the most important concept here is the concept of an assignment. Your ability to do more than good enough, good is enough. Your ability to do more than just good.

00:29:54--> 00:29:58

You always aim for higher level you should time

00:30:04--> 00:30:09

He was not he never settled to be just an A normal individual.

00:30:10--> 00:30:27

Even in gender will the process of obsidian gentlemen has a gate eight gauge what are the workers said? He said he also wouldn't be among those who will be invited from the aid gates of paradise. That's right. That's right. And the processes from how many gates will enter

00:30:29--> 00:30:30

from how many gates

00:30:32--> 00:30:37

you think Abubakar has one leg from one gate and one and the head from another game?

00:30:38--> 00:30:41

He says I'll go this game

00:30:43--> 00:30:46

the rules you walk into Gemini never walk out that's how it works.

00:30:48--> 00:30:51

So we can enter for money so why in the world

00:30:52--> 00:31:01

he asked me about being taught from the eighth case because he doesn't want to be just good he want to be great he wanna have the privilege of making the choice

00:31:03--> 00:31:05

to choose what you want to enter from

00:31:06--> 00:31:13

our level today our any brothers or sisters today or so you ask us you

00:31:15--> 00:31:25

know from anywhere man from the window underneath the gate, you know, just throw me in. I don't care just I want to just be

00:31:29--> 00:31:35

he want to do things to the to the most perfect not favor of being perfectionist.

00:31:37--> 00:31:48

Because those people don't accomplish much in their life but I want what the province of Southern said in a lie hibou that I mean I had become mmm at a low level

00:31:50--> 00:31:57

when someone of you make something that they will do it perfectly right? perfectly correct.

00:31:59--> 00:32:04

Why I'm so sick, if half job sloppy job

00:32:06--> 00:32:15

even you see sometimes Mashallah the build, very good, beautiful building, and in the end, they just cut corners and make it look solid.

00:32:17--> 00:32:19

Everything looks great. And I do.

00:32:20--> 00:32:34

I don't want to go all the way I need to make it all the way. One of the meanings of a time being to do things right and perfect is the ability to focus that's part of the lesson.

00:32:36--> 00:32:39

Because if you are all over the place, you will get nothing

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

but to focus

00:32:43--> 00:33:13

What's wrong with you focusing on this group and other people focus on that group this issue and other people focus on that issue, you know, some organization focus in civil rights issues, some organization work on and focus on building community, a government relations, other groups in the in the community focused on education, other group focus on Adult Education, and children education, but only going to be good and everybody focus. But you have one group they are super,

00:33:14--> 00:33:27

super urbanization. Do you want to cover 12345 610 that's unacceptable. You know what you end up with nothing. Because you have no ability to focus you didn't have the infrastructure the manpower to do that.

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

That's why we don't do things with Excel. We just put our name here and there and upset

00:33:35--> 00:33:53

in madness and sometimes when people come said Shall we want to go to schools we want to I can do that if I do that I will mess up whatever I'm good at. I can provide everybody's need to focus on one thing and I'm not going to do anything to distract others the ability to succeed.

00:34:00--> 00:34:02

He doesn't just say a Salah he said

00:34:09--> 00:34:10

the hospital

00:34:13--> 00:34:15

are three successful one.

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

Number four,

00:34:20--> 00:34:27

the prompts are seldom laid out very clear. He said in them and Nussle muscle.

00:34:29--> 00:34:35

He stated crystal clear. He said you achieve success and victory. If you are patient.

00:34:38--> 00:34:43

Those who have no patience they cannot concentrate they cannot spend time they cannot achieve success.

00:34:46--> 00:34:48

You don't have passion, you cannot focus.

00:34:49--> 00:34:55

You don't have patience. You cannot have a continuous basically work when you drop the ball down the road.

00:34:57--> 00:34:58

That's what I was gonna say

00:35:01--> 00:35:01

San

00:35:03--> 00:35:05

Jose is the opposite of success.

00:35:06--> 00:35:10

All man in Asian hustle, which is the opposite of success, very

00:35:12--> 00:35:23

loose music business, except those who believe the good delegates and they remind each other to be stay patient.

00:35:24--> 00:35:26

And they have certainty of being

00:35:27--> 00:35:29

patient is the key of success

00:35:30--> 00:35:34

in Allah Subhan Allah when the sovereignty those are

00:35:36--> 00:35:46

and if I were with you, I guarantee you success in your business and your life and your and any in any area. Because again, I'm talking about the success in every aspect of your life.

00:35:48--> 00:35:53

being patient will allow you will allow you to have self control

00:35:55--> 00:36:00

over your emotions over your reactions. Sometimes you lose a lot of

00:36:01--> 00:36:09

you know, self control. Without it, it's like driving a car. It's like riding a Toyota car with no brakes.

00:36:12--> 00:36:14

I guess they fixed it. Okay, so

00:36:18--> 00:36:20

why driving a car without a break.

00:36:22--> 00:36:23

You cannot succeed.

00:36:24--> 00:36:26

You need to know that self control.

00:36:27--> 00:36:45

Without patient you will never be able to have that self control. patient will allow you to have always the time to think and to analyze things in the right way to think before you act. If you don't have mentioned you will, then you are hasty. You're rushed up you don't you don't think proper.

00:36:46--> 00:37:03

People who have patient they have the ability to have a long term goals. Those who are don't have patient and why they don't have a long term goals and we'll see it yourself. If you're not a patient person. Always you're looking for quick, quick, quick things, you don't have a long term goals.

00:37:06--> 00:37:07

One of the beautiful meaning

00:37:09--> 00:37:10

that remember that

00:37:12--> 00:37:14

one of the meaning of patient, being patient,

00:37:15--> 00:37:34

being patient that you have the ability to adjust to the new situation. Those who are not patient people, they cannot adjust to the new situation. That's what I always say to people. suberb is not a passive action. A lot of people think separate means I do nothing. Okay.

00:37:42--> 00:37:49

Actually football is to do something. new thing is to adjust yourself to the new situation that you're in.

00:37:51--> 00:38:00

You became before you became broke, you became in debt, you need to adjust yourself to this new style of life. You became rich,

00:38:01--> 00:38:06

as a new lifestyle, you need to adjust yourself to the new style that you have

00:38:08--> 00:38:12

two beautiful sets of positive things. It's not just the passive, me.

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

Number five,

00:38:17--> 00:38:20

your attitude towards life will determine

00:38:22--> 00:38:25

will basically determine how life will treat you.

00:38:28--> 00:38:33

So, remember, this is your attitude. What's your attitude towards love?

00:38:34--> 00:38:35

See the positive it's a negative.

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

The big thing is not what happens to us in life. But what we do about what happens to us in life. That's the big question. It's not what happened to us in life. It's what we do about what happened to us in life.

00:38:53--> 00:38:56

Do you live your life like a victim or like a victim?

00:38:57--> 00:39:18

What is your attitude? I see and I'm sorry to say that I see sometimes Muslim community some individuals organization I was like to live that victim mentality. Like to cry. We've been discriminated against we are treated bad we are this watered down. Y'all live like just want to live like a victim and tilt.

00:39:19--> 00:39:22

And I think that's that's a crime against our community.

00:39:24--> 00:39:30

You know, we need to raise our children we raised our generation we really thought we we live like

00:39:32--> 00:39:32

I was

00:39:34--> 00:39:40

in the Battle of water after so many of them were killed and technically they lost the battle. He said

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

don't ever give up. Don't feel humiliated and defeat. Your enemy can knock you down from outside but they cannot defeat you from your from inside.

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

You allowed them to do so.

00:40:05--> 00:40:12

There is nobody ever can ride your back and was you bend your back as Martin Luther King said to us

00:40:14--> 00:40:17

so it's about what is your attitude towards life?

00:40:21--> 00:40:25

See, Sophia came to the prophets of Salaam Cydia Rasul Allah,

00:40:27--> 00:40:28

amazing teacher.

00:40:29--> 00:40:34

They are making fun of me because I used to be a Jew. I'm from a Jewish family.

00:40:36--> 00:41:01

They never want to give her that positive attitude. He said, What's wrong this? So tell us what tell us of me. They are from Christ tribe, Arabs, he shared with you the same heritage but I wouldn't be any jealous. She said, You are America Prophet, and your uncle as a prophet. And your grand, great grandfather is your great uncle is a prophet, and your great grandfather's a prophet Musa.

00:41:03--> 00:41:09

And you married your prophet? Who is among these ladies, their forefathers were prophets.

00:41:10--> 00:41:10

No.

00:41:12--> 00:41:14

See, it's the attitude.

00:41:15--> 00:41:19

It's just to change the way you look at life. You look at yourself.

00:41:22--> 00:41:39

Some people when they go to job, I said, Hey, Mashallah got a good job? He said, Yeah, I'm doing an interview for the job. I said, What will determine if you accepted the job or not? He said, what I'm going to get out of the job. Isn't that what everybody thinks?

00:41:40--> 00:41:43

That's what most people think what I'm going to get out of the job.

00:41:44--> 00:41:45

And

00:41:46--> 00:41:50

you know what, I think the most important question to ask yourself, when you look for a job, choose a career.

00:41:52--> 00:41:53

Go to college

00:41:54--> 00:41:55

is not what I'm getting.

00:41:57--> 00:42:02

And the most important question to ask yourself, What am I becoming?

00:42:06--> 00:42:06

What

00:42:07--> 00:42:09

if accept the job, what's gonna make me

00:42:11--> 00:42:12

flex at this career, what I will

00:42:13--> 00:42:19

know what I'm going to get what I will be how this will impact my life. That's a different attitude.

00:42:21--> 00:42:25

Your attitude towards life will determine how successful you will be enlightened.

00:42:26--> 00:42:29

positive mental attitude is something very important.

00:42:31--> 00:42:33

If you want to be a successful

00:42:34--> 00:42:42

when you always think you always think, how can I do things? Rather than saying, I cannot do things?

00:42:43--> 00:42:52

As if How can I do it? Don't say I can't do it. It's a different attitude. It's a different attitude. You know, when the man came to the prophet SAW a lot of

00:42:53--> 00:42:54

drunk

00:42:55--> 00:43:00

civiltech not one, not two, not three. And even in some relation, he wasn't wrong.

00:43:10--> 00:43:11

Some people cursed

00:43:12--> 00:43:14

look at the positive attitude, the process I want to bring up.

00:43:16--> 00:43:18

I know that he loves a lot his message.

00:43:19--> 00:43:32

He want them to think in the positive way, not the negative, yes, this is about his negative, but also there's so much positive and the person who can focus on it and make through that the change that you want to you want to achieve.

00:43:35--> 00:43:42

What is your attitude towards your family, towards your children, towards your spouse towards your job.

00:43:45--> 00:43:51

And that will determine how successful you will be in these areas. Number six, I don't want to keep you for long.

00:43:53--> 00:43:58

I want you to know success cannot be based on your dreams.

00:44:00--> 00:44:12

Success cannot be just based on dreams motivation. But dreams are not enough to make a successful person. Talk and words is not going to make a successful person.

00:44:14--> 00:44:14

It's actually

00:44:17--> 00:44:23

the only time you will find success comes before work only in the dictionary

00:44:27--> 00:44:30

doesn't come before work. Success.

00:44:31--> 00:44:35

You have to work and to work hard, the province of Southern self

00:44:36--> 00:44:39

titled cattle and calves and basically

00:44:40--> 00:44:41

you have to do that.

00:44:48--> 00:44:54

Don't just have thoughts and ideas because a lot of people talk but few

00:44:55--> 00:44:56

few

00:45:06--> 00:45:23

Those who talk too much, and too little those who cares about titles and, and and basically big names, and they don't care about remains an integral real things a lot. I think they are just a bunch of losers

00:45:25--> 00:45:52

in law, and I've seen a lot of them. I think that's one of the sign of hypocrisy. I see people fight over what's the name of my work my title in the organization? What does this have we spend, I know group of young people spend months writing bylaw for the organization that plan and after months of fighting over the bylaw, blah, blah, blah, big names and what is the organization nothing?

00:45:53--> 00:45:54

Because

00:45:55--> 00:45:56

there's no actual accurate,

00:45:58--> 00:46:03

my dear, you cannot build replication and what you are going to do I

00:46:05--> 00:46:07

think Henry Ford once said that

00:46:08--> 00:46:11

you only can build a reputation based on what you have done.

00:46:13--> 00:46:22

That's why I always asked a parents with the Tommy chef, if somebody proposed to my daughter, what should they ask him? I said simple. So ask him what you have achieved in life.

00:46:25--> 00:47:03

Just Just go back and listen. So far, I was one of those guys. I want to arrange a marriage between couples of brothers and sisters. So they sit in the table I'm her father asked me to present. So I asked the same question I said, she asked her what did you achieve in life. She said, I was then the State President, my goal wasn't as president is to achieve 1236 goals and achieve five of them in one year. And the six while couldn't do because 123 reasons I want to be in the middle school. I'm in the medical school now. And she laid out all her achievement.

00:47:04--> 00:47:05

The brother came.

00:47:07--> 00:47:08

Fortunately, he's a good brother.

00:47:10--> 00:47:11

He said

00:47:13--> 00:47:15

when he was also NSA president

00:47:18--> 00:47:20

a lot of good ideas.

00:47:21--> 00:47:26

And I really was looking forward to build love and unity on

00:47:27--> 00:47:40

you know, harmony in the college. And I think the brother enjoyed it so much was great experience for me. And you know, 100 live next studying.

00:47:42--> 00:47:43

Okay.

00:47:44--> 00:47:52

I just thought he did not point a single point that he achieved. He's all over the place.

00:47:53--> 00:47:55

Believe me, this is so many of us like

00:47:59--> 00:48:02

success, they send a good plan.

00:48:04--> 00:48:11

To plan good from a very early age. You know, your target what you want to be.

00:48:12--> 00:48:16

You know, that is a great plan. As is one of the most successful people in the history

00:48:17--> 00:48:42

of the disease, he was very clear to his targets in life. He said, I have clear goals and targets in law and a platform. He said, one of my target to marry the honey for his daughter, the most beautiful woman, the most beloved woman to me, she's discussed Fatima and America, very well known noble woman, one of my targets and goals in life, he said is to be able to

00:48:43--> 00:49:09

spread the sinner. And he achieved that he's the first one who established a committee to collect the Hadith of the prophets on a lot of songs. He's one of the first people who have made this system that if you full time student of honey, they will give you a salary. They will help you financially, if you're full time teachers. He will give you a salary and will support you financially. And he spread teachers all over the world.

00:49:11--> 00:49:24

He had a very clear when he became caregiver to establish justice in the society. And he became the most just ruled rulers than the given as an example not by Muslim Muslim and non Muslim as well.

00:49:28--> 00:49:35

This man one of his goal, he says is to achieve a social justice.

00:49:37--> 00:49:45

And he did. I don't have time to go examples. One of his goal is to fix the economy of the American

00:49:46--> 00:49:49

cow the demands Emperor data.

00:49:51--> 00:49:59

And he achieved he balanced the budget. He had extra money surplus in his budget. Actually when he got into

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

half years,

00:50:04--> 00:50:08

they couldn't find a single person to take this account.

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

After the country wasn't

00:50:13--> 00:50:18

very clear, he said, I have a goal to be a halifa. And I became a philosopher.

00:50:19--> 00:50:21

There is one girl left for me.

00:50:23--> 00:50:25

What is it is a gentleman.

00:50:26--> 00:50:29

And I'm working hard towards that.

00:50:31--> 00:50:40

So one of the thing is to have a very clear goal in your life. Goals, not one, for example, a lot of us say,

00:50:42--> 00:50:46

Have you ever determine a very clear goal, what you want to achieve?

00:50:48--> 00:50:53

You know what my goal is, I want to memorize, for example, sort of seven.

00:50:55--> 00:50:56

I want to finish so

00:50:59--> 00:51:00

in that amount of time,

00:51:01--> 00:51:07

very clear, very, very clear goal. Only study this subject, I want to do that in my life.

00:51:10--> 00:51:22

That's what I like when I have some working goal in life. And he answered me with confidence that they wonder if your community member in this master asked, What do you want to be? He said, I want to be a congressman. He can even think twice about it.

00:51:23--> 00:51:28

I was like, wow, the tone of His voice is just make me sit out vote for you, man.

00:51:29--> 00:51:31

It just the tone of his voice.

00:51:33--> 00:51:34

makes me so proud

00:51:36--> 00:51:38

of him, when he said that.

00:51:39--> 00:51:54

In order for you to plan good, you need to know where you stand now. Believe it or Not a lot of people they know what do you want to be, but they know where they act, they don't know where they are, how far they are from the goal, you need to know where to stand, which

00:51:56--> 00:52:02

is point B but you need to know what is point A exactly in the map.

00:52:03--> 00:52:06

If you want to have a good planning, make sure you have a good time.

00:52:07--> 00:52:10

Please clean consult,

00:52:11--> 00:52:14

you have the ability to set your priorities correct.

00:52:16--> 00:52:33

All these will allow you to have a good plan. You have a multiple tools to use in life. It's very poor, very poor planning. If you think you can achieve this goal from a one only way. Good planning always you have you know, if Plan A doesn't work,

00:52:34--> 00:52:35

you still have

00:52:38--> 00:52:39

you still have

00:52:40--> 00:52:43

you still have 25 other letters

00:52:45--> 00:52:45

in the alphabet?

00:52:48--> 00:52:53

A, B, B C D E F G, why only be so many?

00:52:55--> 00:52:59

Two can be used you always have multiple plans. That's a good plan.

00:53:02--> 00:53:11

Look at the prophet of Solomon he plans his his his give you an exam from the circle when he planned the migration from Mecca to Medina the time of night

00:53:13--> 00:53:27

to he choose a non Muslim to be his leaders in the trip. Because if the Muslim he will raise doubts right? What the Muslim can do here but no Muslim nobody would think the process and travel all the numbers and the numbers so looking for him

00:53:29--> 00:53:30

captures

00:53:32--> 00:53:42

three minutes he he stayed in the cave before he stopped the journey. He left Mecca and immediately hide in the cave for three nights. And after that he started the journey.

00:53:43--> 00:53:44

So three nights

00:53:46--> 00:53:52

he is already in the road to Medina should you want to capture but he was actually in Mecca hugging in one of the kings

00:53:53--> 00:53:54

for three years.

00:53:56--> 00:54:18

He hired someone to bring his sheep and to walk behind the profits are solid. Why? Because the process and footsteps and the camels will the sheep walk after the process and then their footprints will be mixed with the sheets so nobody can knows where the profits are someone has gone

00:54:19--> 00:54:19

your plan.

00:54:21--> 00:54:22

He choose

00:54:23--> 00:54:26

carefully who he wants to travel with Alibaba

00:54:30--> 00:54:32

all this good planning.

00:54:35--> 00:54:38

He didn't say I'm prophet with me just do a lot of take care of the rest.

00:54:41--> 00:54:45

If you want to be successful in your life, you have to have a good drawing a lot of

00:54:47--> 00:54:57

good stories that motivate you. Why do you think and give us all the stories about the prophets because the model for Mohammed Salim for the Companions for me and you

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

the model

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

Those who are already successful

00:55:03--> 00:55:08

you have when you have good stories, you have that sense of

00:55:10--> 00:55:15

probability, you know I can make it they made I can make it do

00:55:19--> 00:55:21

so choose a role model

00:55:23--> 00:55:26

that will accelerate your progress towards success.

00:55:28--> 00:55:32

The other side of the puzzle see him rainbow in the story, this lessens

00:55:33--> 00:55:47

your role model for all of us. It doesn't mean we only have a role model the province or Salamis is ultimate form on the companion you can even have role models on life teachers, people that you know the stories of them

00:55:48--> 00:55:54

number nine and only two points. Number nine is success

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

is very much connected to how much steam you have.

00:56:00--> 00:56:11

You have to have a high self esteem. So shows confidence the greater barrier between you and success is the fear of failing.

00:56:14--> 00:56:18

If you don't believe in yourself, nobody else believe in you.

00:56:20--> 00:56:23

So many people wish to be somebody else

00:56:26--> 00:56:29

it's really a waste of the person who are

00:56:30--> 00:56:41

the confidence in yourself. Trust yourself because you be created by Allah. Allah choose you the way you are, doesn't know what he's doing. If

00:56:42--> 00:56:49

you're a Muslim and you're a believer, you someone Allah made the angel pastime himself before your grandfather

00:56:51--> 00:56:52

you know all

00:56:54--> 00:56:55

day

00:56:57--> 00:57:13

and nights like this Next he will gather the angels who are more powerful than us who are more pure than us who are greater than us in so many aspects but with all of this a woman gathered them and let them see he said look at my servers

00:57:15--> 00:57:16

he's so proud of you.

00:57:17--> 00:57:23

How can you be proud of yourself? How can he don't see yourself as somebody valuable

00:57:26--> 00:57:42

don't say I'm gonna be humble because humbleness is not to think less of yourself How long does it take set less about yourself? But it doesn't ever mean that you think less of yourself I just don't want you to think less of yourself.

00:57:43--> 00:57:45

Demo doesn't want you to be arrogant

00:57:47--> 00:57:58

but to have that self confidence self assurance, I know so many marriages fall apart It is because of this problem because the girl or the boy they have no self assurance

00:57:59--> 00:58:01

they always think that they cannot make

00:58:06--> 00:58:19

self assurance doesn't need to be fooled to be unwise person. No, it means you walk with confidence. Confidence gives you that power that fuel to keep the

00:58:20--> 00:58:21

last point

00:58:23--> 00:58:24

success

00:58:25--> 00:58:27

and the end of the day is from the last panel

00:58:28--> 00:58:34

with all these elements which is been asked to do you have to know that it's in the hands of philosophy

00:58:35--> 00:58:38

because all these tools all these principles

00:58:40--> 00:58:41

can make it fail

00:58:43--> 00:58:44

but he will never give you success without it

00:58:46--> 00:58:51

or too similar to because that's how did you take the necessarily means he achieved the success but with teleco

00:58:54--> 00:58:57

don't make your own model our own tada in

00:58:59--> 00:59:04

the I became successful businessman because I'm smart

00:59:07--> 00:59:09

I don't want to sound like Obama

00:59:10--> 00:59:15

so your success is not because you're hard worker because you're smart someone down the road the teacher

00:59:16--> 00:59:22

if you guys follow politics Yeah. So and that's a rock concert.

00:59:23--> 00:59:36

I agree with that that's a person should not be arrogant thing that I meant that successful myself there is somebody else have contribute to your success and the best and the top of all that is kind of what I was gonna say.

00:59:43--> 00:59:48

Any, any, any success that you have today. It is from a lot.

00:59:49--> 00:59:52

Make sure that you keep this always clear

00:59:53--> 00:59:54

in your mind

00:59:55--> 01:00:00

and that would make you always be approved.

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

have milk

01:00:04--> 01:00:08

to make you're grateful to Allah because Allah said, if you are grateful to him, he will give you more.

01:00:10--> 01:00:12

In the end, my brothers and sisters,

01:00:16--> 01:00:17

But if you go to the Twitter if you have questions or anything in general, I'll be more than happy to answer it through my Twitter account which is

01:04:32--> 01:04:44

William W. A l e. d. K, bassoon e ba s why are you and so this is something you can share or if you go to my fanpage you Google to
