Rasulullah who suffered faza Joseon alima Emma bad, always and forever We praise Allah Subhana Allah to Allah we send our prayers of peace upon them whenever he Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we testify that none is worthy of worship but Allah and then our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is is worshipping slave and final messenger. I always remind myself when you have Tukwila as our general, which is that we are openly obedient to Allah in the way that he is invited us so that we can prosper and benefit where we love Allah, Fear Allah, and have a hope in his mercy Subhana Allah to Allah in this life in the next. And I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah mix my private life

00:02:08--> 00:02:52

and what you don't know of me and what I don't know of you better than what we seek to show each other Allahumma amin, we're continuing with our theme, The Art of Manliness, and this is a discussion with you just our high school boys, Mashallah young men growing up in your relationship with a lawn maturing in your age. And these are skill sets that I pray that they will be of great value to you. And one of the things that I wanted to speak to you today about and it's going to be the topic for the next three hours in sha Allah, one after the other a different dimension for each of it. The general theme is how to fix my mistake, and how to recover from error. And how if I've

00:02:52--> 00:03:21

wronged someone, I can make it up to them, and how we find each earned insult in my relationship with a law that I can make a shift in my heart, in my actions in my faithfulness, to help me recover and redeem myself. And one of the most important things for you as a young person in your relationship with a law in your relationship with others in society, is to never give up hope of becoming a better person tomorrow.

00:03:22--> 00:04:05

And as I stand in front of you here today, 40 plus years old of age, there is a better person inside me that I wish and I pray will become better in the years to come. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that a believer is a mirror of another believer. So if they see something wrong, let them fix it. When you look in the mirror, you look out into society, you see yourself, you see yourself and who your friends are and the choices that they make will be the choices you make. There are those who want to sit and hear the remembrance of Allah as a low commends in the portal and on the day of tomorrow. And they sit with their head bow thinking and worshiping a lot in this moment.

00:04:05--> 00:04:53

There are others who sit and their heart Lehi attend polu boom, the heart is distracted and unaware of its near pneus and its necessity of humbling itself to Allah. There's other groups who are there and they're idle in their discussion, not just that their heart is distracted, but now they're distracting to others, seated as a group and unwilling to just humble before a lot quietly. How do we fix the errors that we know that are within us? How do I as an adult and you as a young men begin to transition from good to better? from great to the best that we can be? How can I become not just a Muslim but a movement and not just a believer, but I'm watching mina mazzini in a person who seeks

00:04:53--> 00:05:00

excellence in the relationship with a law and continually striving and struggling to make myself

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

For a better person.

00:05:02--> 00:05:15

The first point is what I will discuss with you today. And it's a three step process. Last week, I wasn't with you for tomorrow I was informally mentioned, and I mentioned the three as learning tools for your parents.

00:05:16--> 00:06:00

As an educator process, my job as your teacher is to help you use the three elements that I will speak about this week, next week in the week after the first element is called self confrontation. This is called this this psychology of redemption. How do I make myself a better person, I must understand that at this point, there is something better than what I am. And that there is a problem in what I've done, what I've said, what I felt, there is a mistake that I've earned, there is a scene that I've committed, that I must confront myself, I must look myself in the mirror and say, I'm not going to accept this of myself. And it doesn't matter if other people don't say anything to

00:06:00--> 00:06:49

me about it. I'm responsible to myself before I'm responsible to anyone else, that if my father, if my mother, if my teacher, if even the prophets I send them is with me or not, I want to be as good as I can be. Self confrontation comes from examining yourself. In Islam in our Islamic philosophy, it's called an we'll have Subbu. To take account of yourself, that you count at the end of the night what you did, right, and ask Allah for forgiveness for what you did wrong. Maha Sabha is at the end of the day, and in the beginning of the day, you take stock, hey, sab, in Arabic means numbers and counting, and accounting, and more has ever is that you look into your heart, then into your

00:06:49--> 00:07:07

actions, then into your words, and then into the feelings you put in others hearts, and then into the actions you influence towards others. It's not just Oh, I didn't say anything wrong, brother. Oh, I didn't make anyone feel better. Look at how the profits of the law and he was selling them. He said

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

and this hadith is a beautiful Hadith I want you to pay attention to it. He says law yes are Maluku your wealth as much money as you will have in the world. It will be never enough later to carnal value that you give of it in charity to everyone you meet. I'll never be rich enough that each and every one of you that I give them charity and make you feel better. And then the prophets I send them said fell ESR who let at least if you don't have something to give something wealth or food or gift, then let your smile be the charity you share with another because how you make people feel is something you will be accountable for in front of Allah.

00:07:54--> 00:08:32

The moment you might say to me, brother, I didn't say a single word to him. And I say yeah, but he said when he walked in, you gave them your back. You gave him a frown. You made them feel in house in unwelcome you were in hospitable you treated them with an ethics that is not the way you've ever been. So I sell them that even the enemy would enter into the magnitude of the profits, I sell them and be treated like a friend, that even someone who cursed the prophets, I send them to his face, that when they entered the house of Allah subhana wa to Allah Mandela who can Amina they find in it peace and security.

00:08:34--> 00:09:22

And that becomes a part of what you examine in yourself. It's not just Oh, I didn't say anything. I didn't do anything. I didn't take anything. But it's about more than that. And the law tells you in the Quran in the seminar, well basora when you add the hearing that you use, the site you perceive with and even the intentions in your heart, all of that you will be accountable to Allah for and don't think I'm just speaking to you as students, but also to our staff. When a staff member when I make you feel inadequate, when I humiliate you in class, when I point you out, when I call out your name and make others spotlight you that's a sin on my behalf in front of a law, if it is done with

00:09:22--> 00:09:48

that intent, if I mean to demean you and to bring you down. That is not the character of a Muslim of a believer and it is not in the ethos of our school. The law tells us cool new code would mean be those who stand upright Shahada, witnesses of justice amongst everyone young and old, male and female, teacher and student Everyone has the right to feel

00:09:49--> 00:09:54

in our place and in our school come for an easy self exam.

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

What have you asked yourself What do you hold yourself accountable to and what

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

Do you measure yourself against when you come to measure yourself how tall you are? You measure it in terms of inches or centimeters? I'm five foot eight. I'm five foot nine. I'm six foot, you measure it according to a standard. What is the standard that you measure your life with? What is the sum of your life what is the equation of your success and May Allah protect you a failure?

00:10:26--> 00:10:29

The standard is Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:10:30--> 00:10:45

it is to learn more about his character and conduct. And after Jinja to lista raha I will continue with why how when why he taught us to look into our hearts and actions and dealings with others of who the holy hell there was some federal law with him and he will

00:10:50--> 00:10:55

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah salam, Allahu Allah, you send them way back.

00:10:57--> 00:10:59

The higher you make your standard,

00:11:00--> 00:11:44

the higher your achievement, even if you don't reach the standard. And whether it's in your studies or in your personal development or in your athletics or in your sports, if your aim is just to do 50% you'll probably get 30 and 40. But if you aim to 100 and you work towards 100, you get a 70 It's better than the 50 you are aiming for that you never received. And always make your highest standard. The standard the gold standard is the standard of the one who Allah describe where in NEC Allah Allahu alim you are on an unattainable level of conduct and ethics and morality and character. You and I we will never reach the level of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. But that's our standard

00:11:44--> 00:12:25

laqad Candela configural su de la he was watching Hashanah, you and I will never be able to push back an enemy with love. You might push back and you might say a bad word or you might be upset because you're not also loss Aysen but you're gonna try as hard as you can. Allah says to the prophets, I seldom push back against the aggressor with that which is better. It might be difficult for you but work towards it, you won't achieve it. But at the end if you made that your standard you will achieve better than if you let yourself loose against other people. In the tradition of us as Muslims to look into your heart

00:12:27--> 00:13:14

becomes the first way we will be judged on the Day of Judgment. The loss of Hannah with Allah tells us in the horror and Kapha be nasty Kellyanne Malika shahida you are enough of a person to be witness and counsel against yourself on the Day of Judgment Allah is not going to count call witnesses a lot not going to say come here tell us what he did to you. There will be no need. Yo Mata shadow Allah him. It'll be on that day when their tongues their hands out of out of jewelry, out of jewelry, doula home, their hands and tongues. Why Ed him be Matt can we xe Boone, every part of your body will say Oh Allah on this day I said this, I saw this, I took this, I heard this, I

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

acted in this way. And you will curse your own self, why have you made your own self a witness against you. And that is because of the mercy of Allah Subhana who went to Allah, that he allows you an eye to examine ourself in this life, so that you and I can come with a conviction that I can be better and I can do greater and I can move forward and I can improve. And it doesn't matter what other thing if Allah sees of me and my heart what is right, that's what matters at the end of the day. And I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah puts his light in your heart, and that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah keeps you firm upon the straight path, and that will lead you away from all

00:13:59--> 00:14:32

of the vulgar influences that seek to surround you and drown you that will not protect you from vulgar music, and disgusting and despicable movies.
