Marina de la

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

ilaha illa

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

Allah Allah Allah,

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


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


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


00:01:07 --> 00:01:11

Are you unhappy with your relationship with yourself, with

00:01:13 --> 00:01:25

your family, with your friends? Do you feel stuck somewhere is as you try to bring change into life, but it's not happening? And it does not to satisfaction?

00:01:26 --> 00:01:42

Are you happy with what you're doing right now? Are you satisfied with where you are right now? Or do you think that you can do more, and you become better neighbors and most for most of us, they always, they always plan ahead.

00:01:44 --> 00:01:56

Even when they reach a very old age, this is our goal for the future, which means they have hope for change. However, the idea of change itself for many is very scary.

00:01:57 --> 00:02:09

It's very scary, because change means you can put yourself into the uncertain. And perhaps it just makes you vulnerable, you don't know if things are only working very well for you. While

00:02:11 --> 00:02:13

many of us are not satisfied

00:02:14 --> 00:02:20

with their relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala, they convinced themselves that what I'm doing is better than nothing.

00:02:22 --> 00:02:22

So therefore, they

00:02:24 --> 00:02:30

come to us, I raised my status. And therefore if I change, that might be actually worse.

00:02:33 --> 00:02:49

And this is absolutely wrong. This is absolutely wrong. You know, change is one of the fundamental principles of this life. It's one of the primary principles of dislike, because without change, there's no growth, and there's no growth in your dead as

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

you're growing. And going big change. This is one of the ways

00:02:58 --> 00:03:05

and what goes on in this creation malos change, the little change, and wants to come

00:03:07 --> 00:03:11

in for us in this fight, and this world? How can we benefit from this.

00:03:14 --> 00:03:15

And you know,

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

why not take the chance

00:03:22 --> 00:03:24

and bring positive change to your life. And

00:03:26 --> 00:03:34

I would like to share with you seven ways for bringing positive change to your life. But first, let's understand the meaning of that.

00:03:36 --> 00:03:42

And then First of all, the first double check the power data has made into this world.

00:03:43 --> 00:03:51

A lot of data goes his ways and his lows in this creation are less powerful than some sort of suit another law

00:03:54 --> 00:03:59

that is the last day to be established in this life in many, many,

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


00:04:03 --> 00:04:18

laws for us, so that we can see a major like point of reference, these are constant and consistent things are lost, how am I going to make them for us as point of reference? So we really change your brain change through the loss of power without changes.

00:04:19 --> 00:04:29

And you might say well, you know, that's that's good. Marty, my situation is very actually desperate situation. No changes can improve my situation. Well, that's what

00:04:30 --> 00:04:32

breaks is what is lost

00:04:34 --> 00:04:43

by making miracles, because miracles communities, so a lot of these are not the supernatural, natural

00:04:46 --> 00:04:51

profits and even righteous, righteous people eat a lot

00:04:53 --> 00:04:56

for moose and Eastern Allah has given this

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

battle Baba

00:05:02 --> 00:05:09

When I was asked to explain what he was holding in his hand, no, it sounds a lot. Awesome. So what is this?

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

What is this?

00:05:17 --> 00:05:18

And what do you do with it?

00:05:20 --> 00:05:25

Especially the one that I remind my mom she pulled from the trees

00:05:28 --> 00:05:30

A long time ago told him

00:05:37 --> 00:05:39

he just did. They responded

00:05:43 --> 00:05:45

last time with Ireland say that,

00:05:47 --> 00:05:50

between the staff on the ground until

00:05:51 --> 00:06:01

there was nothing split second, Moosa was watching this stuff changing from that state, solid dead object into living. We call this

00:06:03 --> 00:06:27

a lot of power without embrace his laws and his ways for us to see these miracles. So in situation, we believe that you have a desperate situation, one of the lowest common ones, who created these laws and these words, to help you change the way Allah subhanho wa Taala can do them. And this is what we call as soon as you have the last panel

00:06:28 --> 00:06:31

created, and many of these things in your control, and

00:06:33 --> 00:06:36

the sun can always come from the from the east, and go to the west.

00:06:38 --> 00:06:39

Otherwise, this is not

00:06:43 --> 00:06:46

good and evil will always exist because of

00:06:48 --> 00:06:56

oppression and justice. When it says, sin and virtue, what it says, belief and disbelief, what it says is

00:06:58 --> 00:07:03

you have no control over that. But you have control to choose, even though

00:07:06 --> 00:07:11

you have the control to choose, and it can change even completely this can always existed.

00:07:16 --> 00:07:20

But your ways of choosing to be under

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

control. And that's the change you need to ask

00:07:25 --> 00:07:27

to help you do

00:07:28 --> 00:07:29

your will to

00:07:32 --> 00:07:38

eradicate evil altogether, make everybody believers, this is because

00:07:39 --> 00:07:40

he wanted to do that.

00:07:42 --> 00:07:43

He was testing the

00:07:45 --> 00:07:46

assessment, finding

00:07:47 --> 00:07:49

things you're not happy with. That doesn't mean

00:07:53 --> 00:07:56

you made that choice. And you can still change it,

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

you can still

00:08:02 --> 00:08:05

able to strengthen the arm to bring the change into light.

00:08:09 --> 00:08:10

We know that from these laws,

00:08:11 --> 00:08:16

these laws are less powerful Donna, they are here to establish justice.

00:08:18 --> 00:08:21

Which means the chance to be good or bad as equal to everyone

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

in this person.

00:08:24 --> 00:08:25

That doesn't mean

00:08:27 --> 00:08:28

that when

00:08:31 --> 00:08:34

you get the choice, it gave you

00:08:35 --> 00:08:36

a choice.

00:08:41 --> 00:08:45

Because a lot one of them to do that forcefully, maybe their own choices.

00:08:48 --> 00:08:52

you satisfied with your situation is not a lost power that I made you that way.

00:08:54 --> 00:09:03

Allah wants me to improve the world. That's true. But you wouldn't need to take the steps towards moving them. So the question is the last time he says in the

00:09:07 --> 00:09:14

last panel without us unless I was not committed justice, I guess. He doesn't have anyone,

00:09:15 --> 00:09:26

for people. And for some people, they commit an injustice against themselves. It is us who made these choices, and we commit our justice against ourselves.

00:09:30 --> 00:09:35

He says that what Allah has created us human beings, and

00:09:36 --> 00:09:48

he created the law of change. So he says, you may choose to be the person who's responsible for this future meaning the choices that you make.

00:09:50 --> 00:09:50

The most likely

00:09:52 --> 00:09:56

your most powerful person who has an ability to make a change

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

and you're the one who knows best for you.

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

More than anyone else. So we need change needs to be manageable what they do they learn others for their mistakes and errors and their atrocities in their lives. And they said,

00:10:13 --> 00:10:20

If you yourself didn't make the right choice, they're not doing that change their lives, how expect others to help you.

00:10:22 --> 00:10:23

So if you're

00:10:24 --> 00:10:30

the first person to open your eyes and see exactly opportunities, a loss of power

00:10:32 --> 00:10:46

for you. Now, why do people? Why do people change the conditions from good? We know why people, they change their condition from bad to good, it's easy to understand that. But why do you think people they change from good to bad how many people

00:10:49 --> 00:10:50

into the opposite side?

00:10:52 --> 00:10:54

Number one, is because of the

00:10:57 --> 00:10:58

weakness of

00:10:59 --> 00:11:01

this amount of liters of demand, will you

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


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

be allowed as well, and so on, instead of you taking charge of this at first?

00:11:14 --> 00:11:31

The best for you. So as a matter of being a subpoena, it's easier to blame external factors, and throw the lid on someone else. Rather than just convincing yourself It's me, who needs to change number two, since data submission,

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


00:11:35 --> 00:12:00

truth about this man who's in the desert, traveling, dusty is his hand, your your, my Lord, my Lord, is asking Allah subhana wa Taala someone such a condition, Japanese stranger, maybe standing in the highway, a lot of their condition, and he's raising his hand ask them what changes condition from difficult to easy. And then the broker says

00:12:08 --> 00:12:15

this person's food, dirty clothes and attrition, all of them coming from home source, how would you expect them

00:12:19 --> 00:12:20

to change their condition.

00:12:22 --> 00:12:24

So the matter of citizen,

00:12:26 --> 00:12:27


00:12:28 --> 00:12:32

He will still send some blessings upon you. But Allah, if you are grateful,

00:12:34 --> 00:12:39

he will serve more in abundance. That was the promise of a lot to handle more than

00:12:40 --> 00:12:49

a lot of injustice prevents that good change happening in your life. Be aware of that. And don't ever commit an injustice against anybody.

00:12:57 --> 00:12:57


00:13:02 --> 00:13:09

event from this city. So these towns, when they create this, this this injustice, and injustice is motion, number one.

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

And then he says,

00:13:14 --> 00:13:21

when he takes them by themselves, they will be under justice will be actually painful is

00:13:23 --> 00:13:24


00:13:26 --> 00:13:31

not doing our duty to enjoin good and forbid Evil has also been

00:13:33 --> 00:13:35

very sloppy in the last panel that says

00:13:38 --> 00:13:39

there were curves that people have

00:13:45 --> 00:13:47

their own processors on people.

00:13:48 --> 00:13:49

So how long What does that tell you?

00:13:51 --> 00:14:03

They got to the point where they're people that they curse, because those lists available. And why is that? Because they don't enjoy good and evil? You see the evil one doing this? Or do

00:14:06 --> 00:14:10

you see the one was doing good? Because no one is helping

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

or expanding?

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

So we're not doing

00:14:17 --> 00:14:18

something wrong. And

00:14:19 --> 00:14:21

this shouldn't be

00:14:26 --> 00:14:28

done for the process.

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


00:14:34 --> 00:14:40

is it possible that everybody will be destroyed when we have people amongst us? They said absolutely. It

00:14:41 --> 00:14:43

will either become becomes

00:14:44 --> 00:14:53

will you become dominant. And in this case, they all will be taken as a result of that. So it's not going to be just equal one.

00:14:54 --> 00:14:59

Because even though they're not doing enough to prevent that evil from spreading

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

To place

00:15:03 --> 00:15:03


00:15:05 --> 00:15:09

division and the reason why people situation change from good to bad is that

00:15:11 --> 00:15:12

you know,

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

it's absolutely not to keep competing for the Lumia. And keep in balance between that and your asset. Now, there is no doubt that you are responsible to improve your and work on have good situation in this life. But But whatever you do in this world, it should be for the sake of us

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


00:15:39 --> 00:15:41

is not how to be successful.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:51

And it's not wrong to be rich in this video. But what is wrong is with all these blessings, the honesty of the people, and

00:15:53 --> 00:16:01

so when people start doing that, they will the situation, in the last panel data will put the farmer between the

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


00:16:06 --> 00:16:19

wherever makes his main concern about power shut that will make this a first. So this person doesn't know where to get it from time to catch every penny possible from every opportunity, they're not focused

00:16:22 --> 00:16:31

on how to make the poverty line between their eyes, they're always afraid of being fooled. And then whatever they try to do.

00:16:33 --> 00:16:36

I'm Ella, and they will be using Excel.

00:16:39 --> 00:16:45

So when you do that, you change your condition to that which is actually worse, not just for you.

00:16:47 --> 00:16:48


00:16:49 --> 00:17:06

seven ways you can bring positive change to your life. Number one, the first you need to care about the check first to do reality check. This will be called an asset, which is up to the account. First of all, make an assessment of your financial situation, check the situation.

00:17:07 --> 00:17:08

Most important thing

00:17:11 --> 00:17:12

is it's something you'd be proud to provide

00:17:14 --> 00:17:20

evidence of your goodness. Is that enough? Okay, do I know you can do

00:17:22 --> 00:17:24

make a reality check on this issue. Check

00:17:25 --> 00:17:43

that just spend the time that you spend and remember the last dollar versus the time to improve the time you spend with people versus the time you spend with the Lord of the people, the time that you do whatever is done for this world versus the time that you should really do for the

00:17:45 --> 00:17:48

improving relationship with Allah, Allah will your family

00:17:49 --> 00:17:58

without a loss of power. Without that first thing that you need to do here is to do a reality check for yourself. Make assessment.

00:17:59 --> 00:18:08

For most of you, you have business plan, and you have always business analysis and assessments. You like this business?

00:18:11 --> 00:18:12

You're dealing with a lot of scope to job

00:18:13 --> 00:19:01

business. It really, really requires you to make analysis and assessment. It was best to do this or not number to check your intentions. To bring positive change. It starts from inside not from outside. intrinsic factor needs to be the desire to bring changes there. You know, I've counseled many brothers and sisters, helping them provide some sort of future coaching in their life. And one of the biggest the biggest problems I have with these young men and women, when they plan for the future is whatever endeavor or adventure they want to do. They always they always feel that exit door open. Which means when they plan something, their attention, try

00:19:03 --> 00:19:04

to try and

00:19:06 --> 00:19:25

snag that one. Because once you're telling me that you're still keeping an exit door behind you back open. So I tried to do more. I said don't make failure an option. Many good intentions solid and strong that you are really changed, that you are going to do the best.

00:19:27 --> 00:19:33

If you make your intention, kind of shaky, I'll try I'll do my best then most likely.

00:19:35 --> 00:19:38

So remember, it starts from inside and that's what I was

00:19:40 --> 00:19:43

in a lie or you might have a

00:19:45 --> 00:19:59

condition until the job's done themselves. Use document site. A lot of choose from on site. Number three, take action. It's not just don't stay with just

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

wishful thinking,

00:20:03 --> 00:20:19

and you always remember all of us hope that change will happen. And I have seen many people, many people in waiting for change. And the wishing actually, for some dramatic change happen in their life that was forced to become a good light, but

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

they think they wish that they an accident happens to them, beloved person dies, that we have some emotional crash, eventually, I would wake them up and shake them

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

to someone

00:20:36 --> 00:20:37


00:20:38 --> 00:20:40

you take the course of action, and the last

00:20:41 --> 00:20:42


00:20:45 --> 00:20:45

And those

00:20:47 --> 00:20:48

those were slightly

00:20:52 --> 00:20:53

less Vietnam, Susanna

00:20:56 --> 00:20:59

so far is demanding that you start first you take the action,

00:21:01 --> 00:21:04

sitting there just dreaming about change, that's never gonna happen.

00:21:06 --> 00:21:09

So take that course of action, when a man was coming into the

00:21:11 --> 00:21:11

gym, he said,

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


00:21:18 --> 00:21:19

way outside,

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

first, and then

00:21:24 --> 00:21:28

you tied up, tied down, and then put your personal monitor.

00:21:30 --> 00:21:53

And that's all we ask for you. Take a course of action. If you know that you need to change, then make this dream happen. And you don't have to do it Don't be so passive and change, you need to be active and proactive. Number four, change your habits, one habit at a time, one habit at a time. Most of us did. They change to America all together. And yesterday amongst

00:21:54 --> 00:21:55

their lives, they want

00:21:59 --> 00:22:00

to do all these

00:22:02 --> 00:22:03

other ones.

00:22:08 --> 00:22:12

Laundry, when people come on comes, they really transform.

00:22:15 --> 00:22:17

The day after today, they're gone.

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


00:22:19 --> 00:22:21

that's our dreams.

00:22:23 --> 00:22:24

We just want

00:22:25 --> 00:22:27

not 100 of the time.

00:22:29 --> 00:22:30

He said, he said

00:22:35 --> 00:22:36

I will

00:22:38 --> 00:22:42

teach you how to do things. Because goodness is

00:22:44 --> 00:22:50

it's an average. And those look good because they used to. They're used to doing good

00:22:52 --> 00:22:59

omens, and sending love to you. Number five, reformed your circle of friends.

00:23:00 --> 00:23:05

Reform your circle of friends. You know, one of the biggest things in this world is

00:23:06 --> 00:23:18

to be social creatures. We're social creatures. And because of that we love to be on people on phones and your friends can can definitely change your life to good or bad

00:23:19 --> 00:23:20

to sell.

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

gravitates this gravity pulls you towards a habit. So be aware

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


00:23:37 --> 00:23:37

those trends.

00:23:39 --> 00:23:42

On the judgment they will be enemies except for

00:23:43 --> 00:23:50

so check your circle and that circle helping you improve the right direction or just keep pulling you down.

00:23:52 --> 00:23:58

Number six, make change your house meant to change.

00:24:00 --> 00:24:05

And that is very crucial. Very important because our house usually escaped from that.

00:24:07 --> 00:24:11

We tend to just go home to relax and get things out of our minds

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

around ourselves with monthly encouraging us to do better.

00:24:19 --> 00:24:21

If your house is not the house

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


00:24:25 --> 00:24:36

enjoy awards are bigger for your children and your wife or your husband. When you come back. Don't have those of love and matters in the house. How can you expect to be that like a comfort zone?

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

So change your own house template. What

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

do you pay?

00:24:48 --> 00:24:53

Do you make sure that your kids pray they have a house in the house

00:24:54 --> 00:24:56

00:25:07 --> 00:25:15

our TV and TV habits? Is it a central location in your house, Nicole living

00:25:16 --> 00:25:18

in one of these corners isolated like

00:25:20 --> 00:25:20

most people

00:25:22 --> 00:25:32

do these days. And there was all these entertainment centers for many 1000s of dollars. And the moment they come home from work, the first thing they do

00:25:34 --> 00:25:39

is find the TV. And they sit there for hours just trying to relax.

00:25:41 --> 00:25:51

Not knowing what they're doing is nothing like another form of worship alongside it's informal, it's like that you could have used this time to make

00:25:53 --> 00:25:54

you better for you

00:25:56 --> 00:25:57

searching about

00:25:59 --> 00:26:01

Russia to be able to wake up

00:26:06 --> 00:26:09

most of the time, so socialization right after Russia.

00:26:13 --> 00:26:19

change and positive change to the life of your house slowly and gradually. Finally,

00:26:20 --> 00:26:22

you set unusual goal.

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

00:26:30 --> 00:26:32

Perhaps it's a long time

00:26:35 --> 00:26:37

ago, and you can

00:26:39 --> 00:26:41

challenge yourself and bring your potential.

Speaking about change, and change is a sign of life and progress.

00:27:13 --> 00:27:15

This community is moving towards change.

00:27:20 --> 00:27:22

And the past few weeks or months we have

00:27:24 --> 00:27:30

broken the stability requires that we really really change programs or activities

00:27:31 --> 00:27:32


00:27:34 --> 00:27:35

Change is something

00:27:42 --> 00:27:45

that you can't avoid change, which is true because change is gonna happen

00:27:50 --> 00:27:56

the same way, but you cannot avoid change. It's mandatory progress However, this option

00:27:57 --> 00:28:06

progresses but change is gonna happen. So if you don't take charge of your chairs to be Congress, most likely is going to be
