We begin with the praise of Allah we send our prayers of peace upon our neighbor, you Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we testify with firmness and conviction that none is worthy of worship but a law and that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his worshiping slave and final messenger. I remind myself and you have touched our lives, our jelly. And I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah increases in myself in you a sense of awareness

00:01:52--> 00:02:03

and consciousness and piety, in our privacy that we grow to love Allah, and fear Allah, and have hope in the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah,

00:02:04--> 00:02:51

in a greater capacity in our private relationships than what we seek to show each other publicly Allahumma amin today Alhamdulillah is the first Duma of our 2021 academic year. And I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah blesses us and protects us and AIDS us and supports us throughout the year. That Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allows us as your teachers to facilitate your learning to increase you in that which we pray will be of success for you into your future, that will also kind of want to add that allows us to nurture and protect your eemaan that you grow to be strong and confident Muslims, that Allah Subhana Allah uses you for the call towards justice and peace and

00:02:51--> 00:03:37

truth that you lead others to the path of a certain muster theme that Allah subhanho wa Taala allows you to be a source of pride and happiness and joy for your parents as they mature into their advanced age. And that you become a support for our oma in the days and months and years to come. Allahumma Amin. Today I want to speak to you about your mentality, and how you think about the world. And one of the things that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was blessed with was that he had a strong understanding of who he was, and what he wanted. And before I begin speaking to you about our nebia sallallahu alayhi wasallam. I want to give you an example that you can understand

00:03:38--> 00:04:22

and ask first this question, what makes the lion the king of the jungle. It's not that he's the largest in size. It's not that he's the quickest in speed is not that he's the most ferocious in attack. And it's not that he's best at teamwork with other lions. In fact, an elephant who's larger than a lion shies away and it's fearful of a lion. a cheetah that can outrun a lion doesn't see itself as the king of the jungle. What makes a lion a lion isn't his speed or his mind or its ferociousness or his size. It's how he thinks of himself.

00:04:24--> 00:04:28

The elephant walks in, it sees a lion it walks out.

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

The lion knows it's a lion. It understands that I'm here to be a lion. It believes in itself. It allows itself therefore to attack a bigger game to move and strategize against things that are larger than it more ferocious, then it's more teamwork and coordinated then it but what makes a lion a lion is its mentality.

00:05:00--> 00:05:29

What makes a Muslim, a Muslim is their mentality, their submission, their surrender to a lot. It's how you see yourself. It's how you see yourself in the world. It's how you see yourself, in your home, in your family in your community. What makes you that representation of righteousness and goodness is not just the actions you do. See, there can be a good Muslim who doesn't always do good things.

00:05:30--> 00:06:23

There can be a good Muslim, someone who's valued by Allah, loved by Allah that made mistakes, and stumbled and fell but they always got up, they always return. They Oh, we thought this is something I can do better in a stolen federal law. haleem I asked a law though might Almighty the old powerful to forgive me for my mistakes. It's never about how strong you are, or how tall you are, or how powerful you are, how smart you are. The prophets I send him says this and I want you to pay attention to this hadith. He says in Allah hella young guru, Ella Swati. Allah doesn't take consideration of your physical makeup. To a lot doesn't matter if you're dark or light in color. If

00:06:23--> 00:06:36

you're tall or short, if you're male, or if you're female, when I can young little enough to do become alikum. Allah always looks first to what's in your heart, what you think,

00:06:37--> 00:06:43

why you do what you do, why you stay away from what you stayed away from?

00:06:45--> 00:07:37

What makes you a good Muslim? Is your endeavor to protect and have good Nia have good sincerity to Allah. And that's why it's always the beginning. Allah says in the Quran, wema, O'Meara Ali, Abdullah meclizine, Allah Dean, they will only order to worship Allah, but before the worship of Allah, that they do it on the reason of sincerity only for him. So you can feel this whole message of our whole school with good deeds, trying to seek reward from others, you could give him 1000s of dollars in charity, you can be a person who stands in public and prays and fast and does everything for people to see you and hear you and know you, and all of it is counted against you. If it wasn't

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

for a lot in the first place.

00:07:40--> 00:08:13

It's about what's in your mind and heart. A lot doesn't look to your body and to your actions. First, he looks to see what's in in your heart. And then what follows of your deeds. And as we begin the 2021, academic year, I want you to ask yourself, who are you? And what do you want out of life? Why are you here? What is your purpose? What is the meaning of the days and hours you will spend over the next year with us in this school?

00:08:14--> 00:08:32

There are two, three different kinds of answers you can give the first engine, you can say I'm going to do what everybody else does. So if everybody goes over there, I'm going to be a sheep. I'm not a lion. I'm just gonna walk behind the rest and do what everybody else does good or bad. I'm just going to tag along.

00:08:34--> 00:08:48

Another answer might be, hey, I'm here to do what I want to do the hell with the rest of them. I'm going to make my own rules. I'm going to come and go and eat and do whatever I want. The rules don't apply to me.

00:08:49--> 00:09:25

The third is the one who's quietly confident, who knows why they're here, who has a plan and a purpose, who sees the outcome that they see who can vision themselves in the year 2039 10 years down the road, this is who I'm going to be 10 years from now. This is the job I'll be doing this is the home I'll be living in. This is the masjid I'll be praying in this is the community of belong to this is what's going to make me the man that I hope in sha Allah to be.

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

I have a vision. My mentality

00:09:30--> 00:09:32

is more important

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

than my size and my place today. I leave you with this Hadeeth of our Navy assembler. lahardee usnm. He said for every person, there is an inclination Surely there's something that you feel you want. You know, I want to do this something you desire. Your heart leads to it. And he said no one will have success in life. Unless the thing their heart inclines to is to what I

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

was sent with. So you gotta ask yourself, what is the profit expect to view the profit was to visit you today? The profit was to follow you the rest of the day. What language would he hear from you? What effort would he see you putting in? What habits will he see you using with your friends? What kind of behaviors would you demonstrate? And more importantly, if he could look into your heart and see your actions, what sincerity and a philosophy you have, as a sense of honor and pride and tradition and submission and surrender to a law.

00:10:36--> 00:10:46

ask yourself that question. Who am I and what do I want out of life? A Julio probably had that was Sofitel la Lima Li walakum.

00:10:48--> 00:10:49

la masa Ganesh.

00:10:53--> 00:10:59

Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Milena via the Mohammed bin Abdullah Ali Abdullah Saleh.

00:11:00--> 00:11:39

You might be sitting here now and say, brother, I don't know. I don't know what I want. I don't know what I want to do. I'm too young. I mean, you're seven I'm in year eight. I mean, you're 12? I don't know yet. Is that a problem? The answer is no. The problem is not thinking of the solution. being absent minded being surprised by the future rather than planning for the future. And therefore the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah says, women couldn't attend remelting men, Mathilde keytab, you didn't know what this book is that this Islam was going to be delivered to you. You never knew before you turn 40 that you would be commanded to be the Messenger of Allah. You didn't

00:11:39--> 00:12:11

expect this to happen. But the prophet always planned on success. He was always truthful. He was always trustworthy. He was always generous, he was always helpful. He always did the things that were right that led and preached and ensured greatness was to follow. So you may not know what you want to be today. You may not know what the future holds. But you need to ensure that you invest in your moment in your time now

00:12:12--> 00:12:32

to prepare for your greatness in the future. So if you're struggling with the reading of the Quran, you need to ask yourself, when I'm my father's age, when I'm 15 years from now, when my children want to learn the four iron, and I can teach them, will I then go back to school to learn?

00:12:33--> 00:13:11

You need to ask yourself, do I want to be a person who looked is and is looked at as being someone who is being given from the system? Or do I want to increase and add to other people's systems? Do I want to be the one whose hand is being given? Or do I want to be the hand that gives and that's what the prophets I said to him said he said earlier doula, only the hand that's giving the hand that's wealthy the hand that's powerful. The hand that's generous, is always more loved by Allah than the hand that's receiving and is outstretched for need and debt and help and loans.

00:13:12--> 00:13:14

And mineral kawi.

00:13:15--> 00:13:30

A believer who's like a lion and that's why we use that name. In the Arabic language. Many of you here you might not even know that your name is named after a lion soufiane life, as said, Hamza,

00:13:31--> 00:14:23

all of those help saw how all of those words mean lion. Because in our tradition, as Muslims, we always saw ourselves as people who were self sufficient givers not takers. Those who blessed not to be blessed and receiving from others that kindness and therefore prepare for the days to come. 2030 2031 10 years from now, is the plan that you put into action from today, in the beginning of our academic year. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah uses me and all of our staff to help you achieve your goals and dreams. And if there's ever any impediment, obstacle, difficulty in your road, whether you believe I can help you with it or not tell me and I will kick it down for you. Tell us

00:14:23--> 00:14:28

that we can remove it, dig under it, climb over it, push through it.

00:14:31--> 00:15:00

You are the face of our future. You will stand where I'm standing one day, and you will teach where I can teach one day and you will lead when we are no longer here today. May Allah subhanho wa Taala prepare you for a blessed future for the oma of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a long marriage in Islam only Muslim was the other Aqaba Dean, Allah Medina was the him yamawaki mean Allah

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

Neither the cricket or shoe cricket has never asked Allah Subhana Allah to bless our staff and our school, our parents and our teachers, that Allah protects us and assists us and helps us to achieve that which is better than what we think we can achieve. And to make us from those who are true submitters Muslim to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, we have to do that. Why not? And in hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam optimist sada

00:15:35--> 00:15:36

below

00:16:04--> 00:16:06

so tarrazu

00:16:09--> 00:16:52

Humble yourself to a lot of zoa Jen, this is a moment of connection, of stillness of quiet, find stillness in your body and in your heart. silence your thoughts, seek to push away any distractions and open your hearts to Allah subhanho wa Taala seeking the near ml of a law asking him to increase you in what you are seeking and to protect you from what you and your families fear. May Allah Subhana Allah accept from all of us Allahumma amin for the boys who are going to be leaving soon after with brother far left and our brother Abizaid, please inshallah I will dismiss you with the year twelves first so after you saw that after our I've called I will send you first in sha Allah

00:16:52--> 00:16:54

wait for my dismissal. Still.
