Gama Wonderful to see you all friends while it was salam

00:00:57--> 00:01:06

does he How old are you friend or tell us a little bit about you? We've we've gotten to know you through the month of Ramadan. What stage of life are you in? For all of you?

00:01:08--> 00:01:13

How because I see familiar faces I Isha Selma, a furry

00:01:14--> 00:01:22

for ESA and family. I share our friends. I think some of you have been here from Kuala Lumpur walaikum salam

00:01:24--> 00:01:24

kasi went away.

00:01:26--> 00:01:52

While ACHEMA, Salah Muslimah and everyone who's joining us friends what have you gotten from the beginning of our program? So from the very beginning also bIllahi min ash shaytani R gem Monday minimalism was about in this time of Corona and Ramadan, we're cutting back Shahara and family Wychwood salaam where they come from to the UK. And if you're here, I'm going to give you for catching the if you're catching the recording.

00:01:53--> 00:01:54

Excuse me.

00:01:55--> 00:02:23

The next four minutes will be somewhat of a recap. What did we talk about on our first day of Monday minimalism. In order to cut back we had to recognize where we were right now. COVID situation Ramadan, summer locked down. And in a present situation of isolation. We were in a very different scenario, we're in a very different Ramadan.

00:02:24--> 00:02:48

So why now because well, I'm locked inside and it's a great time to start cleaning things up. So how many of us with the word clean or a one one can say we have started cleaning out things in our household? Absolutely. We've all been doing this. And as you began cleaning out, you started cleaning out some of your habits like Muslim five hours.

00:02:49--> 00:03:37

Five hours we're in Monday minimalism. Talking about specifically, this whole journey we've been on in the month of Ramadan. Monday minimalism number one was about talking about addiction, talking about repetitive habit, habitual habits, repetitive habitual habits that are detrimental to our health. So you've all been cleaning, you're cleaning out your house, you're cleaning things. How many people have cleaned up their habits? Big time? They're YouTubing their time usage? Absolutely. So the first step we said was to recognize there may never come. And I don't know if we want to see a time like this again, in our lives where a situation will stop all of society.

00:03:39--> 00:04:07

Yesterday, John Oliver, I read had a piece on sports. And just by reading the headline, I recognized how many brothers and sisters this may not directly attend to you right now. But give the equivalent of sports. Brothers how many of us and don't answer if you don't want to be a part of the conversation? How many of us want to cart caught allies want to

00:04:08--> 00:04:54

start afresh before sports come back before Zion Williams is dunking from the free throw line between his legs and then I say I think I should stop watching that's going to be impossible. How many of us are willing to reframe what sports are right now? The billions of dollars that are put behind this industry? I want to clean up before the movie industry starts releasing releasing Fast and Furious 37 and before black, pink and BTS go out on tour again for real guys. Do we want to do a deep cleanse of our activities what we watch what we tolerate our our standards for what's allowed.

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

I do so we call the week Nam.

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


00:05:02--> 00:05:06

addicted to attention where our attention goes.

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

Does anyone recall week number two?

00:05:11--> 00:05:20

So in week number two we started talking about yes. Okay, can you tell me any any components about week number two? I liked that little intro there

00:05:25--> 00:05:27

Okay, excellent. Yes

00:05:34--> 00:06:12

yes, Monday minimalism I like it. So I personally ladies if the whatever the equivalent part of men's men's brains are occupied with the constant movement of sports, you can fill in the blank I don't want to give give you a suggestion. I think, you know, whether it's the upcoming sitcom or an actor or actress or singer or something that you're like, Whoa, yeah, I keep I keep up with that, the US Weekly or whatever it is, we are now choosing to gut those things out of life and have a full control of these diseases on these viruses that can really

00:06:14--> 00:06:52

fair enough. I Isha Are we willing to, to say that shopping has been shown it secretes the same hormone, this new novelty hormone, and your brain does crave it. So is shopping addictive? Absolutely. Start at the first level and then once you can act, understand it, then then you shrink down from there. So me telling you don't shop not going to help? I share saying why am I doing this? becoming addicted to your attention? Why are you doing what you're doing? Does anyone recall week number two?

00:06:53--> 00:07:12

In my from what I understand in Week Number two, we started to write down lists of activities that we wanted to do. We wanted to make a daily a list of activities that would happen in our perfect day. What are the physical activities? What are the acts of privada

00:07:13--> 00:07:19

if anyone can recall a single of a single component we said that we wanted to in week two

00:07:21--> 00:07:24

what was what was something we discussed in week two

00:07:27--> 00:07:50

supercharging a dua so I said in week two, I want you to start making lists, start making lists of activities that you want to do a min brothers anybody can give a few a list of few things that you want to do in a super productive day workout. Eat healthy, what are the things that you would like to do in your ideal day?

00:07:51--> 00:08:04

Make a list of those things and I know you're like oh this is ideal band. I'll never be able to do this. Okay, now with that attitude. But once you've made welcome excuse me, I can tell it's most people's first

00:08:07--> 00:08:21

thing many people remember from second our second the second Monday supercharging a dua okay right now how many people have said Oh, God saved me from the fire indicates somehow Oh, God saved me from the fire.

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

Right so low

00:08:24--> 00:09:09

profit right and read a page of grunt Oh, I love it. I love it. Send salawat and the prophets Allah do Psalm 100 times and read the page of grime boom, write that down. Now those are activity Issei chakra you find yourself you're like hey, what should I do? Hey, wait a minute, I have a list of perfect day things and make the list longer though. Shahara almost like you couldn't do all those things in a day. Rather, you're you're like hey, I've got a bin of toys to play with a bin of things to do then in week number two, it was about making the list Absolutely. It was about making the list and then got you got to keep writing it now Supercharged. You guys said the fire there you go. Now

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

my What does Allah have my dear nomina now are mean to you right now? Oh, Allah saved me from the Hellfire right take me from the Hellfire save me from the hellfire. Can you supercharge it?

00:09:21--> 00:09:24

Rodrigo, can you supercharge this phrase?

00:09:26--> 00:09:29

Okay, that's amazing. Very happy for you.

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

I'm saying I can supercharge which means can you take the phrase Allahumma ajira Nami Na Na? Oh, God saved me from the fire. And now you supercharge it. I think for everyone. Now when you feel anxiety and depression outside of Ramadan, and you feel like you're dipping how many people feel like they have supercharged this phrase? It's like a vitamin C tablet. A lot of my god Amina not a lot of modern Amina I

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

If I feel like I have and it doesn't have to be that Brit prayer for you find one that works for you. Subhanallah Alhamdulillah Allah my India's a Luca Jana. Find the one that works for you. Allah Amin

00:10:16--> 00:10:22

s, and in the third week we discussed. Can anyone recall what we did?

00:10:24--> 00:10:32

Allahumma adjourn Amina NA means Oh Allah save us from the fire. I'm saying you give it your own

00:10:33--> 00:10:38

time machine. Thank you, Joanne that was last That was last week. Now I understand.

00:10:40--> 00:10:49

I was I was I was on a lone island there gelato joke. I, I had a stack of notes that were all in different order. So I was like, Where do I go?

00:10:51--> 00:10:59

Last two weeks ago, we talked about supercharging a DUA, what it means to take a phrase and put a certain energy in it.

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

So I won't be depressed. I won't be depressed. I won't be anxious. I won't be anxious. And now when you need it.

00:11:09--> 00:11:33

Thank you cleaning out your closet was week three. Thank you very much. So does that make more sense to you, Rodrigo, that you take a phrase and you give it meaning? You give it a meaning. That you say I don't want to go to hell? Oh, God saved me from the anxiety and the depression. That would lead me to hell. A lot of my journey Amina now, along my journey, I mean, I'm not.

00:11:36--> 00:12:14

Alright, so last week, we talked about cleaning out your closet. And can we move on from that everyone feel okay, can I get a three three if you're ready to come into the third week? You didn't have to undertake this is not a sequential TV show. If you got it, you got it. If you didn't, that's okay. But it's about supercharging. Making the DUA mean something for you. Number three, how many of us did our time traveler sheet and filled out first grade, second grade, third grade one years old, two years old, what's the earliest memory you have and then fulfilling that?

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

That's nice.

00:12:28--> 00:12:59

Three, three. So here in third week, in the third in the third week that we were last week we talked about doing a time traveler sheet. Thank you. The time traveler sheet is going to ask you to write out all of the years of your past and fill in the gaps. How many of us have bad memories from when we were when we were younger? Right? We go back reframe them say they everyone did the best they could with the knowledge they had

00:13:01--> 00:13:07

and they move on from there. So I am asking us today are also bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim.

00:13:08--> 00:13:12

Can you make a time traveler sheet I have to redo my time. Okay.

00:13:14--> 00:13:15

Will you do this much.

00:13:17--> 00:13:59

And right you as some of you can go up to the level now of make a scrapbook make up PowerPoint, make a photo album online in one of those Google things where you fill in as many pictures as you can from your childhood. You only need a few for each year. And then keep building and if you can build a more complete story you'll have a more complete future it's very forward. Why do we clean things out so we have room to to bring in new things. If you're stuck with all the old clutter and mess and I'm and all the old limitations of I'm not hard I'm not good? You'll never make room to bring anything else in.

00:14:00--> 00:14:15

Sounds like a Hallmark card I like that. So come on the third week. It is not a complicated process sit down make a list from the earliest memory maybe five years old seven years old and then start filling it in.

00:14:18--> 00:14:25

My apologies friends there has been someone ringing at the masjid door for more than 45 minutes I'm not sure who this is.

00:14:30--> 00:14:40

I'm trying to figure out so would you would you pause with me other throughout the week Can we hear a word from our sponsors? And I will try to respond the masjid

00:14:41--> 00:14:44

inshallah a word from our sponsors ignore relief

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

the GPS announced I had arrived but I couldn't believe

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

that the client I was delivering food to was on the same street I lived on.

00:15:06--> 00:15:26

I rang the bell, an elderly woman answered, she was ecstatic to see me. I left the bag of groceries at her door and watched her inspect the contents. She had been quarantined for weeks, all of them with no groceries and no one to help her until she called ignore relief. And the whole time she was living right next door

00:15:30--> 00:15:48

she insisted on making me tea saying that I had brought her so much happiness. She told me about her life for youth the days when she was younger. After being locked up for so long. She just wanted someone to talk to before I left I told her if she ever needed anything to just contact me.

00:15:50--> 00:15:58

Oh, I don't want to keep you driving so far just for me. She said I smiled Don't worry. You're literally my neighbor

00:16:03--> 00:16:11

this Ramadan be a neighbor to your brothers and sisters in need. Charity begins at home. Charity begins with you with economic relief

00:16:21--> 00:16:28

I will be lurking in the shade on energy and has to be Allahu La ilaha illa who are the workers to have Waro panache dalim

00:16:31--> 00:16:32

Monday minimalism

00:16:34--> 00:16:47

friends, what do you do? What do you do? If you recognize how much people are in need for relief now? What do you do? When people are coming to the masjid door? Go dude, wouldn't

00:16:48--> 00:16:52

wouldn't you expect to get something if you came to the masjid in Ramadan?

00:16:54--> 00:17:17

And I believe that's what ignor relief is trying to do. Right? They can have relief is trying to be able to when someone comes to have something at the door. So whether it's the unsolved program, Wallach Muslim, but that's that's what that was Subhanallah like, you can't plan in time these things that they happen because someone was in need. And so may Allah spawned Allah Blum.

00:17:20--> 00:17:48

Bark Luffy COMM This is all happening in real time. So I think my Lord as much as we want to think that we're in the TV show, we are the TV show Friends. And so right now what you could do you change your life and change your addictions and, you know, clean out your closets and do these time travelers sheet. But if today you you genuinely provided a $5 $20 You, you made some commitment. Do you believe that it that it affects people's lives?

00:17:49--> 00:17:55

Do you believe that there's a brother behind that door wearing the Seattle sweatshirt that you bought?

00:17:57--> 00:18:07

Yeah. Allahu Akbar. So it's hard. And it sounds perfectly, you know, it's like, what can you do? But it's,

00:18:08--> 00:18:39

there's this feeling of Who do I give to? How do I give to everyone? I believe that giving and I know, I'm on a completely different topic here. But it goes to minimalism. But brother, what about the feeling of not having enough? What about the fear that if I give, I won't have. And I believe, I believe in some essence, that's what giving does. It exhausts you and connects you to the source. And it's a very tough, it's very tough, you're like,

00:18:41--> 00:19:07

No, I just worked for this money. And thus, give and give and give until you can get connected to the source. So it's not easy. And I usually don't pull. I usually don't ask for the charity. But when you see people coming and saying I need help, some food, anything, do you have anything? And you know that relief wants to keep the door open? That's important to me.

00:19:09--> 00:19:55

Charity doesn't decrease wealth. I know that brother Jawad is encouraging us and reminding us but Jawad, that's the line to be crossed, right? It does. What do you mean it doesn't decrease? Well, well, here's 50 bucks now I don't have 50 Right? There's that there's the line to be crossed. Giving means living from a place of abundance. Allahu Akbar. Oh Kabira This is minimalism. As in I only keep what I need. And I have what I need. I am enough. I am enough Subhanallah but But what No, I don't live that lifestyle. I agree with you but I don't live as if I am enough and that I have enough. I'm looking to hoard and double buy and triple buy.

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

And so I speak of myself, you know I speak

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

Got myself and, and the and the idea of sure I can wear white and keep the place clean.

00:20:07--> 00:20:27

That's not minimalism. I think minimalism is defined right here. Charity doesn't decrease your wealth. Giving a means to live from a place of giving is a living from a place of abundance. A minimalism is only keeping what you need, and I have what I need, and I am enough.

00:20:28--> 00:20:31

Subhanallah Subhanallah Subhanallah

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

excuse me, thank you for your patience, everyone today.

00:20:36--> 00:21:25

So in week number three, it was traveling back in our time in our childhood, to moments where things were good and worth where moments were not good. We make things right. Right. If if you if you think as such the money that you are doing is not your money, it is the money of Allah subhanaw taala has already destined? Yes, I agree with you. I need I agree with you. And I guess that's the difficult part. The difficult part is, is crossing that line to say, a wealth will never decrease. And I have a standing testament, I should be more inclined. And believe it more because I've seen people at the same donation the same year coming to donation dinners and giving twice and then you're like, why

00:21:25--> 00:21:28

are you giving more they're like, bro, when I give I get more

00:21:30--> 00:21:39

than anyone else see that you have to take there is a leap to be taken. I give. And then you have to you have to come with a sense of

00:21:41--> 00:21:57

you have to come with a sense of trust in God to say I'm giving and I know someone who is going to get this back to me. I would much rather though come from that place of abundance and say I'm giving from the source. And that's where I want to learn to live from.

00:21:58--> 00:22:07

And there there's a lot to get to that level friends. Has anyone ever felt like the level that the Sahaba reached in their lifetimes?

00:22:08--> 00:22:37

was genuinely enormous. Right? I now would like to stop on on these Monday discussions. Our last one here to say the Sahaba really attained real Islam in their actions in their in everything in their lifetime. Some of them came to D later in life, meaning they had opinions pet peeves, they were adults. And they allowed Islam to penetrate into their heart.

00:22:39--> 00:22:50

That to me is a level of inner cleaning of real minimalism where you can go against your own self that me friends, is tremendous.

00:22:53--> 00:23:18

To go beyond the surface minimalism the beyond the surface of minimalism, you have no idea all that can you can gain by cleaning out the mindfulness, the stress release and the baraka of using and being grateful of what you do have of work Baroque era. So how many people can can we celebrate this today on almost make this our 30 minute point?

00:23:19--> 00:23:27

Can you celebrate with me today in the words of brother Jawad to go beyond minimalism beyond just curtailing our

00:23:28--> 00:23:31

our addictions beyond making a perfect day list beyond

00:23:32--> 00:24:09

the time traveler sheet that we want it all to come together? You have. We don't understand how much we could gain how many people would put the word gain in the chatbox if you intend to gain by cleaning out your house, your your car, yeah, being mindful of stress release by having allowing baraka to come into your life and by being grateful of what you do have Allah Amin, Allah Muhammad and being grateful of what you do have that is a treasure from Allah subhanaw Dona Allahumma Amin

00:24:13--> 00:24:17

Thank you Allah. Thank you Allah subhanaw taala for giving us what we had.

00:24:26--> 00:24:30

We take me one point back reading on brother John's point. Excellent.

00:24:33--> 00:24:43

Gratefulness, gratefulness, guys, let's see. If we can start from a place of gratefulness. No one around you is going to be grateful no one around you is going to be

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

happy they're going to go what? When did you become a hippie? Oh, well, you all religious, how many people expect that when they go back to their lives and try to exude gratefulness to start saying I'm so happy for what I have

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

Someone's gonna be like, Yo, what's wrong with you? Yo, what happened to you? Yo, let me get some of whatever you're having. So there is that I feel many people are ready to shift into, into a new life into a new place of gratitude. It's what will people say around me? How can I be joyous and happy when the world around me is in so much pain, and everyone around me is so negative and

00:25:28--> 00:25:37

and not exuding happiness, Allah Amin. So let's work on that together. In today's discussion, we want to be

00:25:41--> 00:26:26

able to be perfect goal every day. A lot of times, I'll get to meet with people who deal with addiction. And they'll say, Man, I don't know how I'm going to make it for a year. And you know what every true teacher of addiction will tell you one day at a time. So I want to take a moment today to ask us to talk about developing our own main goal, a daily goal that gets us through our day. Now when I say daily goal, everyone's gonna think of do your work, get these responsibility done. I'm seeing a daily goal for you. Five hours that are would be better if he had this daily routine that he went through self care self love. So if you're ready, I'd like to spend 11 minutes together, what

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

are the components of our perfect schedule, if we could work on them together? I was going to be asking you about how to deal with super downers around you the Debbie Downer around you by not taking on their energy. So by you focusing in grounding your own energy in the morning. So let's talk about it right now. How do you set a goal for your own day, that doesn't have to do with you accomplishing,

00:26:55--> 00:27:42

like getting to work or doing a specific task. It has to do with things that you're going to do for yourself. Number one, if you want to jot these down together to start and go past Ramadan and carry this number one, you got to start the day out with grounding, daily grounding in the morning. You can call it a vicar breathing meditation. You need to ground yourself in your own affirmations you need to say, I'm doing great, I'm doing fantastic. I am fantastic today carries the light that I'm looking for. You need to ground yourself and give yourself the letters of the day. The phrases of the day do you want to jot these down together guys, let's let me grab. Let's jot these down

00:27:42--> 00:28:31

together. I had made them into a set of notes. And I think you can do this together. Number one grounding. So the first activity I'm doing in my not in my daily minimalism is I will wake up and I will ground. Some people like a zero like zero intention. There's zero intention even before you wake up. I'm going to have a great day. I'm going to have a great day the zero intention before you wake up. I'm going to have a great day. Number one grounding. Can we say one to three minutes of grounding is the is really the bare minimum where you are going to sit down on your tush or lay on your back and get involved with your breath. Follow the rise and fall of your breath number.

00:28:32--> 00:28:33

Excellent. Let's go number two.

00:28:35--> 00:28:38

Number two, your

00:28:39--> 00:28:44

grooming ritual. And each person so grounding, grooming,

00:28:45--> 00:29:31

grounding and grooming. Many of us and Brian Tracy speaks about this to be awake two hours before your appointment. And about putting yourself on putting your face put in your body cleaning yourself up there is something about the rolling out of bed and being super casual. That's getting kind of over pushed on our society now. So we don't commend the person who wakes up early to rise and two goes through a consistent grooming ritual. So wake up whether it's best to take care of the body but do the things not running to not running like oh my god, I'm late. I got to do this. There's grounding, grooming. And now

00:29:33--> 00:29:37

what's the next thing that you would have to do in this day that you want to do?

00:29:39--> 00:29:41

Number three goals.

00:29:43--> 00:29:59

Set goals for that day. Once you're done grooming you've looked yourself in the mirror you feel like a million bucks and more. Grinding yourself is harder when you when you see things going astray like falling a final and seeing your future dreams fall apart.

00:30:01--> 00:30:50

Yes, friend, but on the day to day schedule on a day to day schedule where yes, I see things around me going horrible, but I only have control over the things that are happening to the things that are happening to me. So based on that, yes, things are crumbling in front of me. And are you going to make it out of the crumble of? Absolutely. How would you know this? By looking at your your trajectory of your life? Right, the trajectory of your life has shown that things do work out. So do you want to just plan for this crumble or keep working as if you're gonna go right through the crumble? So grounding is about acknowledging what is always true despite circumstance what is always

00:30:50--> 00:31:11

true. So grounding yourself is hard when it things like things are going to seem like they're going astray. But to anyone who feel like that, then look to see any circumstance truth will be truth, let it crumble, you keep working towards your dreams. The things are crumbling in front of you. There's a difference between unrealistic but

00:31:12--> 00:31:22

if you have a headache doesn't mean you stop you stop. If you're tired doesn't mean Oh, that's it. You know, I gave it my all, though there's a whole nother level that we go into.

00:31:23--> 00:31:36

So every day would you make the intention of virtual tawaf, to virtually sit down and do a goal setting exercise where you see yourself walking around the Kaaba

00:31:37--> 00:31:45

with seven breaths, in these seven breaths, I'd like you to visualize number one walk around the Kaaba thinking about consciousness.

00:31:48--> 00:32:22

I am connected to my Lord and I am available to serve my Lord and you walk around the Kaaba, you come to the Yemeni corner Robina Artina for dunya has Santa will fill up karate Hassan alcanada Banagher number for it. Yes, so number, excuse me. Number three is the goals setting the goals number. So within that first one consciousness second one hummed grace, the word is hummed, or grace, gratitude. Stay in the gratitude of your Lord for an entire breath as you circle around the Kaaba, the black box.

00:32:25--> 00:33:03

Happiness, gratitude. How much abundance Do you Have you come to the yummy corner Robonaut in dunya has Santa waffleh Kurata has Santa walked in another banana? The third one is asked for God's forgiveness. Walk around the black guy asked for forgiveness except forgiveness, exercise forgiveness. Forgive yourself by accepting joy in your life become a miracle and let miracles come through you and seek forgiveness with every other human being world. Robina Artina duniya Hassan waffleh Sana Latina dabba na so that's three Wallick Muslim everyone.

00:33:05--> 00:33:47

Do a goal setting exercise where you visualize consciousness, Grace, forgiveness. Now project, who are you going to be in three years? Who are you going to be in two years? What will it take to be that person in one year? Then in the fifth? Perfect your perfect day? What are you accomplishing Today? Today? I know what with Psalm is going to do I know where he's going to go. But more importantly, I know how he's going to feel. And I know how he's going to carry himself. Number six bounty? How much do you deserve it? How much does your Lord have for you? Number seven, unity consciousness. So we've got grounding, grooming goals.

00:33:48--> 00:33:57

Anyone else? What else do you need? In your in your perfect day? What are the clear vision of a perfect day that you would need?

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

How do you set the goal? That's another that's another, another discussion. But I would like to touch it by finding out what experiences you want to have Rodrigo. It's a really great place to go. Everyone has goals, but ask bigger questions. What are the experiences you want to have? What do you want to feel? How do you want to be in 1224 and 36 months? Now when you can start painting those pictures out of what is it going to feel like then your daily then you'll know the little things you need to do to get there. Give me a one one if that works for you, drawing out a passionate picture of who you want to be in three years, two years, one year is going to allow you to then micro down

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

into well, if I'm going to look like that, I guess this is what my diet needs to be like if I'm going to write if I'm going to have this kind of relationship with my spouse than

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

This is why I should start doing this now. So setting goals is has a lot to do with experience chasing. Find out what do you what do you want your life to be? What do I want to experience this in my life? If you asked me Thank you friend, if you said with some Is this how you want your life to be? I pray doesn't sound arrogant to you and if it does, I hope God helps you understand more. This is how I want my life to be the bark Allah. So absolutely while ACHEMA Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh to everyone coming in welcome everyone again to our Monday minimalism for Ignite relief. I get caught on the word mundane minimalism from ignorance relief in our intercession programs

00:35:44--> 00:35:52

today, I think was really beautiful of all the mundane minimalism today has its own beautiful feel to it.

00:35:56--> 00:36:04

I don't mean to, to just play on the words. But if you could take one more good nourishment, good nutrition.

00:36:09--> 00:36:31

Oh MMI if you type in virtual toe off in YouTube, I have a full walkthrough I'm taking it really lightly right now because I don't want to make a big deal out of it. Game changer, life changer. Virtual too often and a daily basis. And in that though, off, visualize your day, good nutrition. Number four. Good nutrition

00:36:35--> 00:36:52

good nourishment, nourishment, good nutrition. On an ideal day, wouldn't you be aware of what you wanted to eat. So a lot of times everyone has these days of I want to do things I want to call people and make business deals. Make your

00:36:53--> 00:37:05

the experiences for the day to be grounded to groom yourself in the morning to to do a virtual toe off and set up some goals and to have good nutrition Allahumma Amin

00:37:07--> 00:37:08


00:37:10--> 00:37:16

having your prayers on time, I haven't cooled G for that gemas your prayers,

00:37:18--> 00:37:19

your family

00:37:21--> 00:37:22


00:37:24--> 00:37:27

three places that I think you should put your effort

00:37:28--> 00:38:21

prayers. You'll be able to meet God there and reconnect with him. Family, family grounds you in a way that even your meditation can your meditation will make you feel all high and holy. Your your kids will sneeze on your face. It grounds the grounds the ego and sitting with yourself one to three minutes of silence before you go to bed. That to me their friends. That's an ideal day. I've prayed I've eaten I've taken care of myself. I'm presentable. I think that's a very beautiful place for us to be. I want to use these last 12 minutes together to ask you though friends are how, how are your plans going forward to conquer your schedule? Do you have an addiction sheet? Do you have several

00:38:21--> 00:39:04

sheets of paper that describe your perfect day? Do you have a sheet of paper that describes your perfect day? Do you have a sheet of paper that describes the perfect activities on that day? The people you would want to contact on that day? The perfect foods that you would on that day the perfect thoughts that you would have on that day? And what are the acts of a bada that you would do on that day? Do you have a series three or four personalized supercharged Diaz? These are the area for example. This is a bake. I wrote it out again. Because I was missing Omar and hudge love bake Allahumma the big love Baker luxury Calacatta bake it's awesome. I wrote the lie that Hi Lola who

00:39:05--> 00:39:08

will actually color the whole milk or whatever. I'm the one who Allah cliche and Kadir

00:39:09--> 00:39:34

and another dwadashi. along my journey as a local Afia dunya will ask Allah Magne as a Luca la for wala efe Dini will dunya wa wa Molly and so I supercharged this dua as well just 10 written by me. What's the purpose of this post Ramadan? I worked so hard and I talked about having a perfect date.

00:39:37--> 00:39:49

Oh, don't be sad. Everything is sadness. Yes, they're published to you do yes, they are published you do. I want I want someone to leave my class happy.

00:39:51--> 00:39:53

So friends, the

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

supercharged it's easy to talk about a perfect day but without having

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

Some of the components you

00:40:03--> 00:40:08

you feel lost then when you have the opponent components you have to get up and do it on your own

00:40:10--> 00:40:31

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah I have so many questions to answer about myself. Thank you shave you so much friends a sense of Salaam for you all we're we're starting to conclude but I wanted to leave the question box open now. Do you have questions about Monday minimalism? I don't want to drag it on. If you don't, I have plenty of content we can jump into

00:40:34--> 00:40:56

a teacher of mine and more importantly brother Jawad has put together a book many years ago brother Jules I don't know if you've ever saw this it's called accepted supplications by Mallanna of the Nazareth hengda And truly, it is like a meaningful prayer for was

00:40:57--> 00:41:11

very powerful. It really is. So if you're interested in growing your your knowledge of dwarves then pick up one dua at a time. One dua at a time and start supercharging them for your own.

00:41:15--> 00:41:18

Okay, chellah take care of be safe be well

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


00:41:23--> 00:41:38

Well, in Kuala Lumpur lesson acorns Allahu wa Barakatuh to anyone who is exiting from the other side of the world as salam aleikum, now to Brother Jawad and all of us locally here, friends, any questions about where we are? Or should I continue in the perfect day?

00:41:39--> 00:42:24

For example, as you're asking questions, I'll throw a little curveball. Okay, I beat my addictions I made my perfect day and now I'm trotting along doo doo doo doo doo. Now 20 days after Ramadan, I'm having a crummy day. It's 4pm What do I do? There should be a list of activities in a day that make you happy. Pull up push ups are things that delight you doing a crossword puzzle or some painting some activities if you don't have them, start finding them some small activity that makes you happy that should be able to lift you from that moment of depression. What if you're stuck in a rut? Allahumma Agera nomina now Oh, use that phrase that we just supercharged Oh, God saved me from the

00:42:24--> 00:42:31

fire and saved me from these these bouts of depression that could lead to the fire.

00:42:32--> 00:42:33

i right.

00:42:35--> 00:42:40

So that's one any other feelings friends or any questions in general?

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

The man who talks for a living nothing to say I've got a lot. I've got a lot to go just want to know what direction to take it in for all of us.

00:42:58--> 00:43:18

I understand that addiction therapy is not something that we talk about much and seeking help for it is even harder. If there are any. If we can discuss it in any way. Brother Jawad. If we have any can we extend anything to them? One do other I love that applies for minimalism. Allahumma

00:43:22--> 00:43:28

I have the goal of memorizing the whole Quran How many times should I revise around before I could have committed to man keep try to consume the Quran month a month if you can one Jews a day reading I'm afraid of sitting with my thoughts that what is it says and sit down with a pad of paper and I don't mean to sound cliche, but fear Allah kind of like grab the thoughts of is there some part of you that feels ferocious? Can you say you will I fear only Allah and you you take on those thoughts? If not, then there should be a better way because you don't have to just grab everything.

00:44:52--> 00:44:55

steps to take when getting familiar to book.

00:44:56--> 00:45:00

I want you to try try a little bit friend. How about a few min

00:45:00--> 00:45:22

It's at a time just writing down your thoughts, seeing where it takes you. And at least getting down to skeletal frame and and the parts that are too dark, too scary to go in. You just, you know, put a draw circle around it at least you'll know where the scary parts are. I've been starting to memorize ground but I've been feeling guilty about just rambling out the aisle not knowing what I'm saying.

00:45:26--> 00:46:04

I'd like you to think about why don't you feel a little guilty for for saying that just reading it is rambling. Like aren't their blessings just like brother Joe was pointing out to be happy with with the now aren't you? Blessed? Isn't that shaytaan laying you are not cat cradle of Oh, you're not good enough because you don't know the meaning. So if I may, I would definitely like to recommend you. Be proud that you can read Quran, memorize the whole Quran and be like, what about the time where everyone couldn't understand and the ground wasn't translated? Don't let luxury become the noose around our head.

00:46:05--> 00:46:40

Hope this helped. Here's a great resource therapy okay, yes, please check out a Muslim therapy options Thank you. If you're gonna sit with your thoughts, and hug hugging hands, I want you to I really want you to feel proud that you are even memorizing at all right? That's a very big deal. Allahumma inni is a local Buddha. And if you don't know the meaning, don't let anyone make you feel bad for not knowing the meaning. Practice what you know, but memorizing the Quran and meanings shouldn't be intertwined with each other they shouldn't be overly bearing on each other.

00:46:41--> 00:47:11

If you friends this is my final Monday, if you benefit from it never leave someone with whom I've not only worked for and with, but saw them as I grew up in New York, and the work that ignor Relief has done for many years has left long impression on me.

Monday minimalism and could you tip your turban and and curtsy your hijab to to the fact that it cannot kept like a variety of topics, right? It was always something fresh and I really they made sure that the topics were dense and that I had enough to speak about them before coming in. But I really feel like this is fantastic Subhanallah because there is a DMAC fauna Ceramidin mursaleen 100 liability I mean, so before we go, we definitely have when a one relapses multiple times, maybe within a span of a couple of days. How do we deal with the idea of not being forgiven?

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

It's putting it back in the hands of your Lord. Sure. Oh god, I'm trying and it is super frustrating when you've done. You've cried. And you said I'm so sorry and almost to comfort yourself from the crying and feeling bad. You go back and do it again. Am I wrong? This whatever the scenario was, let's call it a cookie. Okay, so you ate the cookie. You felt bad about the cookie? You sat down you made it so far is that as tough Rula you cried a little you were so sad. And then to soothe yourself after this emotional Did you eat the cookie again? Yeah, multiple relapses friend. Is this about seeing a stock for the law once or about seeing a stuff Rula till it sticks.

00:50:49--> 00:51:07

Thank you friends. So if anyone wants to, you know if you would please. It's not about not despairing and Allah's mercy. It's about re reshuffling what you think of God's mercy, right? Allah subhanaw taala is doesn't have a human emotion. Oh my god I just said sorry. And then I messed it up again.

00:51:08--> 00:51:11

See how many times you can turn back to your Lord

00:51:12--> 00:51:13


00:51:14--> 00:52:04

Excellent question. Excellent. Don't feel beat down about it and Allah does not tire of you returning to him, so don't tire returning back to him. Allah does not tire of you returning to him. You have him forgiving you. Allah does not tire of hearing your I'm sorry and forgiving you so don't be don't tire from turning back to the Throne of Allah subhanaw taala couldn't end on any better way. Subhanallah he won't be handy here the colicky worry born of see he was the pinata Archie.

00:52:22--> 00:52:30

The GPS announced I had arrived, but I couldn't believe it. The client I was delivering food to was on the same street I lived on.

00:52:31--> 00:52:52

I rang the bell and elderly woman answered, she was ecstatic to see me. I left the bag of groceries at her door and watched her inspect the contents. She had been quarantined for weeks, all alone with no groceries and no one's held her until she called ignore relief. And the whole time she was living right next door.

00:52:55--> 00:53:14

She insisted on making me tea, saying that I had brought her so much happiness. She told me about her life, her use days when she was younger. After being locked up for so long. She just wanted someone to talk to before I left, I told her if she ever needed anything to just contact me.

00:53:15--> 00:53:24

Oh, I don't want to keep you driving so far just for me. She said. I smiled. Don't worry. You're literally my neighbor.

00:53:28--> 00:53:37

This Ramadan, be a neighbor to your brothers and sisters in need. Charity begins at home. Charity begins with you with economic relief
