We testify that there is none that is worthy of worship but a lot that Mohamed Salah Wadi he was sent them as his worshipping slave and final messenger. I always remind myself and you have a lot of cell agenda memory the loss of kinda went to Allah continues to favor us with His mercy. With an increase of a man with an increase of our love for him fear of him some comments want to add up and hope it has mercy jendela that it is with great pleasure that I am once again with my dear brothers and sisters here at the University of Western Australia. And I prayed that a blossom kinda went to Ida you attended by those of you that he gives all of you and us as students a completion in shot

For those of us who it's their final time and returning home May Allah subhana wa tada carry them back if they're international safely to their families, as a source of pride for their countries and their people. May Allah subhanaw taala continue to favor all of those who have come in the pursuit of a NACA knowledge that is beneficial to themselves and others of them. I mean, my discussion with you today is about focus. And focus is the Constitution of the faith of the people of Eman in particular model by the great prophets of Allah. And the messengers of Allah subhana wa tada were people who had a developed supreme focus,
they were able to understand what is a greater priority than what is a lesser priority. They were people who were able to invest themselves fully in whatever it is that was the task at hand. More importantly, they were able to lead others to that same ideal and focus in this life and more importantly, for what is becoming the next life. How difficult it is to inspire someone to see and desire
Something that is unseen and intangible. How difficult is it to speak to someone who everything in their reality in life is material.
wealth, gold, power, status, desire,
attainment, land, real estate, weapons, everything that was surrounding them when something you can pick up, hold and have value that is metric and intrinsic evenings, but the prophets of Allah, so I want to talk usnm body human human, their primary duty was to call people to that which cannot be demonstrated to that which they could not delegate had to believe it and had to accept on value based on the words of truth and demonstrate to believe in the one calling them to it and never will you find that loss of power to either begins before discussing those who believe he speaks about those who call them to faith. He says, I'm gonna rustle up mountains, either either human or
overheat when you tap down,
the prophets of Allah, the Messenger of Allah, they believe in what was sent to them by Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah, and then in following them are the believers. And therefore it is if you must understand that it was a struggle for the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to come to a reality where my contentedly mental mental map is kicked out. Yeah, well, I mean, you weren't aware about the details of faith and what was to be sent to you in the book when he man and the precepts of the faith that has been sent to you
whenever you judge them, but it was sent to you as an enlightenment as a light in the darkness of the world. In everything that seems bright, there was darkness. And where there was lacking light, we will shine light upon it for you. Yeah, I met someone laquan he was. And this was not unique to him. But it was perfecting with him some a lot of what he was selling them. When you look at all of the profits and proceeded in supply sell them, there was this one element to focus
that there's a job, and there's a task that must be met, must be completed and must be attained.
And there's certain things that we learn from the CRL that whenever you have a loved one that relates to focus in mind, and I'm just going to speak about three due to the variety and shortness of time that we have performed within jumaane. First, it's filled with elderly yet understanding what comes before other things, what you take precedence what you take priority in your life. So kinda law regularly, I get asked questions by students, by adults and young people chef, should I memorize? or learn how to do
it? You know, for a non adult? It's a really big question. Should I put effort in trying to learn words learn statements, things that I don't know? Or should I try to decipher the language first, and then perhaps learn?
Should I do my master chat or get some work experience first?
Should I finish all my studies or get married?
I shall follow the brother smile. We want an answer to this one.
What do I do what what what takes precedent in life and so common law you find that for a loss of kinda winter either, he would always give the advice to the profits of a lot, he was brilliant, he would always leave the messages, a lot of it was said live from what was most important to that which would solve itself if you got the first one right.
And focus determines that you must see to make correct decisions that are relevant to you and not necessarily relevant to others. So can a lot of times the prophets of the love it was Sunday was make a decision that everyone around him was puzzled. And an example of this is a good idea. So karma by the prophets I sent them. He sees in a dream, that he is making tawaf around the Kaaba and to the prophets of Allah is how he sees himself making collages that the colonial mentioned the forum, you're going to enter into that for me number one who who succumb in safety and security, you will get to the point you weren't even shaking your heads, having completed your own rocker your
And the prophets I send them says to the Sahaba, let's go to them.
And as they arrive in an actual harangue, which are tied to the Prophet takes us for coffee, he travels in the month, where there's no warfare in Arabic.
culture. And he arrives.
He's confronted with the people, of course, he would say the best nanika the new moon, we put on the clothing of lions, we're not gonna let you learn that
you will never enter the city by force, we will not allow you to go back. Some of
the Sahaba are committed. They said,
you saw a dream.
We focused on what you're focused on. You make the law, the law. You saw it. It's true.
Even to the depth, some a lot he was he said,
he sent me a lot more info.
And for three days, how about a new
man wasn't kidnapped, but he was told to wait for three days before he enter for a false rumor lines begin to spread and continue with malware they apply to make Hilton. So we'll have an even more agitated, they're losing their focus. What is their focus? Is it to perform aroma or to please also kind of have to add? What is their focus? Is it to follow the shooting of the prophets of the Lord send them in every step of the way, or make their own decisions and force him into what he doesn't want.
And then come back to the prophets I said last time and again.
And the people of our age, they send it so who later on becomes a believer, or the above on blah, blah.
And it begins a treaty with the prophets I send them that even the most beloved of the prophets, I send them this obey Him. It
I leave here with a lot behind them is the one who's writing down the treaties. And from the very first word, so the province I sent them they begin to dictate that this is a treaty between so hated Now, what will happen there but also love? He said, No, no, I meant that.
If I believe is a messenger, why are we here? Why are we discussing right in the head? I didn't have the left. How do you ever feel loved one who says Never will I erase Mahatma Gandhi super loss of a lot he was. So the Prophet instruction. And we know that when the Prophet of Allah says to do something, when
you have no choice, you do what the prophet says. But we're taught here and then add that value into 30 more minutes and not you do whatever someone with authority wants all the time. Sometimes you have to stand and say I can't do it. And I need to set the hour. So a lot. I cannot take your knee moment. So a lot of what he was saying.
He disobeys that message about how much it hurt. So the profits of a lot of audios had been focused. What does he want? What's his mission is to please allow him to do what Allah has asked to fulfill what his destiny will be. It is the father of a lot what brought him in this place. The promise of Allah is true, but a lot did not say when it would be a loss. I guess you want a tournament, you know, for Rob, we'd say but he didn't say this year. He didn't say next year. It's in the color of a loss of pattern with Toronto. And sometimes you and I lose focus in our life where we think something must be done now. But it could be tomorrow. It could be 10 years from now. And it's the
kind of attire that you unravel, not that you control. So the puppets I sent him there he says it himself
he doesn't condemn it Do they love it?
cover on the law.
He removes his Mohammed also law and rights until the right to hammer the country that
the conditions see on the outside to humiliate the believers. If a person comes to you as a Muslim from karate, you must return them to us that the guy
and if I purchase it from you comes to us we will keep it
the Prophet agrees with Lars the most difficult was that you cannot even see the combat now you must go back to Medina we're gonna humiliate you. You've come all this way 12 days journey go back you can even see it for drawing from its water or smell its air some a lot he was
and it's at this point that some of the Sahaba lose their focus while you're on your own and maybe they come back Yasuo How would you summarize it? How would you say? Is that awesome? Linda? Aren't you the Messenger of Allah?
Aren't you given victory by the angels? Aren't you supported by a lot? Why would you sign something that puts us down in front of in front of the eyes of these people?
The Prophet I seven turns from this and says one single thing
in the matter now I'm the servant of God.
And I've been summoned to fulfill with a fatwa. And he entered into a sense of Allah. aggrieved in his heart with pain. He said, man that was now it was only what can I do with the people, I'm around maybe to whom their prophet tells them take off your colors. There's no rulebook, there's no had, they go looking at the camera, take off your home or moving back home, and they refuse and his wife or their loved one, and
she says, Let me cut your hair, let me shave your head bald. And when they see you've taken your forearm and shake your head, they will fight each other to do the same work.
And that was the condition.
When they saw the beauty of the profits of a lot, he was setting them exit his tent and His hair was removed. The Ottoman ness people fought with each other who's gonna cut whose hair, I'm not cutting your hair Do you cut my hair, that you cut my hair before I cut your hair.
I want to follow him twice, and they regain their focus.
It's not only about the objective, but it's how you get there. It's we don't have this principle. And this is the second point that I share with you today. There's this whole Machiavellian principle. And you used to hear it from people where they say, by any means necessary, it sounds nice. By any means necessary. You do whatever you got to do, but you get what you want. Unless you have
unless you're a believer in the law, we don't believe in by any means necessary. We believe in them in our motive in the act, that actions are called ignorant and judged by the intentions that preceded them. And during that I can't just do what I want, because I want something in the end. And it doesn't matter. What do I do to get to there, if I get there, that's enough, not how you get to where you want to be, is as important, if not more so in our deed as whether you achieve it or not. And therefore a lot focus in the profits arising in Nicoletta techiman. So
could you imagine how much energy the Prophet put in somebody who loved
he loved his uncle, he loved his grandfather, he will call them to truth. And Allah says thinking from the beginning, in nacada, you're not going to be able to guide the one just because you love them because you have cooked for them. The Prophet loved somebody who is a capital. They don't believe in Allah.
And the Prophet loves him. It's his family. And it was st not because you love them. That means you're going to be able to influence them focus your Mohammed, it is not the end. But the means what are they taking advantage of your only duty is to convey the message whether people accept or not, it's up to them. Whether they attain success or not, it's up to them. Whether they pass or fail, it's up to them whether they do what do you recommend or not is up to them. And it's becoming very important for us in our times today. Because many of us, we try to focus on the goal.
I want to attain this.
And if it means me I compromise myself a little bit until I get it. It's okay. I want to get married. Okay. If it means I have to chat with him a little chat with every little fact means I sent a photo here to her that I meet them without my parents knowing if I mean, Jani, it's okay. Now focus. You want to like focus, I want to get a job, I want a job. So if I get a job, that kind of stuff, I go in with a job maybe you get a job, I wake up normally let me just the last interview, I went with the job I didn't get the job. Maybe if I take my job this interview, I'll get the job. Let me try that focus. It's not the job. It's not what you give up to a team.
And therefore focus becomes the ideal of the profits of a life after to the Sahaba give you one more example from the seer on the life of the Prophet Mohammed soleimani.
That why stuff for a while the buddy what happened to me.
I couldn't even
about that. Get up
to speed. We said that our topic is about focusing it's the Constitution. It's the way of life of a believer and we take this from the model and the ideals from the lifestyle of the profits of the law.
And then wishing Chuck love
to explain to you in one more example. The Career Development of evil have met some A lot of us
In narrowing in, on what was an important target, something that he wanted, but tsukada law, something that would be difficult to attain, if he lacked this clarity and this focus that we've been speaking about, I wish to define once again, focus for those who came a little bit late. It's your ability to understand what is of greatest priority between before what is least a priority. It is your ability to navigate and to choose between the preferred from that which is less preferred, and to put one before the other. In that which is pleasing to Allah and attains for you the steps to achieve the success that you desire will speak about the nature of the Prophet.
One of the most momentous occasions for us as Muslims is the hero of the prophets
chosen date of the beginning of the Islamic calendar, it is a day that was almost as if we set the clock back to zero and began counting. That's how important it was that the prophets of the law One of them was able to migrate and begin a new one want you to think of that moment where the profit items is reported, turned back as he's setting out on his vision, and he looks back to Mecca and he says, buy a lot in nothing, we have
nothing to hide, you will find that you are the most beautiful and the most amazing of the earth that a lot has created whenever that he woke me up to do an evening key massage. And had I not been forced out by people were my family or people, my community people from my tribe, the people of this land, if they didn't expel me, I would not have left some alibis.
What does that tell you about the profits?
Sometimes there's things you don't want to do.
Sometimes there's jobs you don't want to take.
Some sometimes there's careers you don't want to start. Sometimes there's apprehension, there's worried
Is this the right decision? Is this the right thing for me? I'm going to go to a new city, new people.
I don't know that they don't know me.
Where am I gonna go? Who's gonna who's gonna look after me? Somebody will say,
well, let him do the massage. If it wasn't that they turned me away, I wouldn't leave.
But when he leaves, he commits himself.
And so Pamela, one of the most beautiful things about the seal of the prophets on the love on it is that you begin to understand that what Allah wants for you may many times be different to what you want for yourself. And if you understand this, you will be able to focus, the profits of the loan, even sell him when he was leaving McDonald's, his whole mind is returned. As he's leaving Mecca, I'm going to come back. Even in his dreams, I'm coming back. And then when he comes back to Panama, what does he do?
He gives all of the edema to the people find everything that was gaining everything that was conquered. He doesn't give any of it back to the to the home saw who the ones who supported him. They're the ones who took him in. When everybody turned him away. He even said this to them for a second. He said shooting you say to me our way now, we helped you with everyone turned from you. Why?
And we believe in you when your own people just believe that you shouldn't you say this and count this as a favor for me. You see me giving all this hype to the people of color right? After we conquer them You thought I was going to give you isn't it better
than they received these material things and you return back to Medina with the prophets of Allah
Subhana Allah where is the Prophet very similar.
in Medina, when did he return after the conquest of Mecca after a lot of returns and from where he was expelled after the place. He said it is the most beloved place on earth after the place where one is found out he's 100,000. He goes to a place that seemingly, if you like focus, if you're only focused in doing your managers, that that's the place you should stay. That's the seat of power. That's the place of prestige. That's where the cabin is. That's where his ancestors are from. That's where he should be from.
The prophets I send them returns to the unsolved
he returned to the people of Medina.
He returns to that which in the beginning was not his first choice.
I want you to understand in life, sometimes Allah gives you a second choice, which is actually your first choice. And if you could see it, you would understand. And there is two ways of looking at the world, with the eyes and with the heart. And also kind of Allah says, Even now that amount of upside for many amongst mankind, it is not their eyes that are blind, when I can tap them and kulu 82 sooner, rather, it is in their hearts. That blindness has said in it lack of sight is fairly
obvious, you a real life example.
Some of our young brothers and sisters as much a law, they tried to ask advice for marriage.
And you know, some of you will get a brother and a sister who's very attached to each other. And this is this is the one Jeff I found the one martial law. Yeah, and he who is 2 billion. Whoa, why? It's this one. Hey, Eddie,
this is her martial law.
In what do you want? Well, she has this and this and this and this. And this.
He has this in the account all of the facts, all of the characteristics they want. And so
at night, they wake up from this with the Hadoop, Rochelle mostly, we lay the other way.
And maybe the brother's name is almighty, yada, yada.
But the one who knocks on the doors is
and the sister if she looks with her eyes, she sees it but she doesn't see.
But if you look through their heart, all of the characteristics of our founding do it.
And also kind of want to highlight enters your mind in three ways. He gives you first what you want, when you want and how you want it. Very rare. Everything you want the way you want it if you're giving even though
he made all the way to it.
And wasn't given what he wanted, so alone he wasn't it's not gonna come when you want it.
Very rare. The second is a lot gives you what you want, in a different way than you think you want. So you want to comment, but you get it but x men is found in it is honestly is hard work, his education, his family, his wealth, his love, everything that you want in mismanagement, that you say in your document document, it's actually knocking on your door.
But your heart is not focused. Your eyes are seeing something that is a neuron and was a panel with advertisers in the
chamber, what would you like? Most people when they look with your eyes, it's a mirage until they arrive at a place and they get to the destination they thought they wanted, they got to the goal that they do everything up for them get you to shader they find that it was empty for whatever
reason. But what they find is what they have done in the displeasure or in the pleasure of a love I don't love gives them the reward or the punishment that they are fitting.
let us begin to hone our hearts and sharpen their insight.
Focus is not metric. It's not just simply a checklist of things I want. Focus is also to learn
to trust the loss of time to make a decision based on your list and then to put your trust for either of them into that our canon law, Yamaha determined for McMahon, you want to stay there but you know you must leave now how can Allah step forward to allow open your heart to Allah you will find there, what was better than what you had and what was better than what you lost? And what was better than what you worried about losing in mind.
In your heart is the seat of focus.
If you sharpen it with your love and fear and hoping a lot so how do
I ask Allah subhana wa tada who has gathered us here together for this hour if you want to make us from those who have talked to a lot
who have an honor and a love for a law,
who allows us to focus on what is a greater priority before that which is less than a loss of economy to either makes you a year
may not be able to know the thought the best of our days the day we return to Him. The loss of kind of metallic gives us insight into the inner workings of what is best for us in our life among them I mean, one of our dear brothers, a PhD student has recently undergone some surgery and so time a lot some of you brothers may know him must have had I'm going to highlight grant if he or she thought to our brother could do brother more he was saying and as my boss accountable to Allah to grant him, Shiva and now your logical sakana a healing in a cure that leaves no trace of his ailment. The loss of hundreds are the same The conference is light and his mercy and his explanation of the sins a
lot. I mean, I
have a few arguments about disease. I do gather as always saying you didn't want to study Mohammed Abdullah Ali help those so there was no need to have I was suffering a lot all the money without going through stuff we all do not want to go for. Welcome.
