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

And

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

now

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

when I

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

say Marina

00:00:14--> 00:00:16

washer Allah Allah Allah wa

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

Yeah.

00:00:36--> 00:00:36

Come in

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

Mattila

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

de la foto de de de

00:00:49--> 00:00:51

de la, la and NASA.

00:00:54--> 00:00:57

Well, Kevin happy to have you ever hammered and bla bla bla

00:00:59--> 00:01:00

bla

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

bla bla, bla bla,

00:01:06--> 00:01:30

bla, Monica sisters, window people usually, we do people usually remember the value of time, the most important moment in their lives. When do they remember the value of time, there are three moments in their life, three moments in their life where they remember the value of time the most. Number one, when they lack the time,

00:01:31--> 00:01:51

when they lack the time they get busy, that's when they realize I wish I have more time. And number two, before they're on their deathbed, they wish I wish I had more time to do so. And so. And number three under the securities when they stand before the loss of Canada without on the Day of Judgment.

00:01:53--> 00:01:57

Why do people have to wait until this time before allies

00:01:58--> 00:02:03

to feel the value of time and the great loss of their lives? Why is that?

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

You know, a loss of power.

00:02:07--> 00:02:12

Time and many, many schools in the Quran. He said one last in

00:02:13--> 00:02:36

the last. And while also watching the late afternoon time in particular, because that's the most wasteful time, the most wasteful time, people are tired, they're coming back for more, they're spending it on the highway, there are so many ways of losing that time. But this is the most neglectful oil time when less and less people will be worshiping.

00:02:39--> 00:02:46

I swear by this time in the course, at every human being is a great loss.

00:02:47--> 00:02:48

Except for those

00:02:51--> 00:02:52

that do the righteous deed.

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

For the loss of a sudden, those are

00:02:57--> 00:03:09

one one another was also gonna have to hold on to the truth. And those also join goodness was the saga, and they need to be patient together and hold them to the truth. And

00:03:13--> 00:03:18

he knew the value of them and express them in many, many. But for us what is so special bonus

00:03:22--> 00:03:26

for those our children to school, next week is a spring break.

00:03:27--> 00:03:46

It's a spring break, which means you have your children, you're going to have them for about 910 days at home, you're going to be around the house. For money, it's a blessing, it's a blessing to have the kids finally for me and for my for my for the family, we get together, we get along we do activities and so on. For others, it's a nightmare.

00:03:48--> 00:03:56

It's a nightmare, because it means that kids are gonna be at home alone. That's very stressful. Now, whether you like it or not, whether you like it.

00:03:58--> 00:04:08

And if you don't prefer yourself, well, you can lose that. And when you lose it, you're going to remember, if not before that, it's going to be

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

it is going to be on the Day of Judgment.

00:04:13--> 00:04:15

Don't want to have that position before.

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

Therefore, in this

00:04:20--> 00:04:28

data, we want to share with you a few stories about the value of time so we can appreciate this demo but lots of data. Hopefully maybe

00:04:30--> 00:04:44

you will have enough time before spring break starts. before spring break start, you will have enough time to plan and get organized and spend most most of the time in shallow data with your family and with allies.

00:04:46--> 00:04:53

So lots of hands on one data store by the time in the forum when the US Senate in Santa Cruz and it says one day

00:04:54--> 00:05:00

one agenda is for by the nine is for by the day. So the value of time is democratic

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

This is the mention of the Quran in many, many. We don't have to emphasize that too many because we all know.

00:05:06--> 00:05:08

Well, I'm either the German or the Allahu

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

Mohan.

00:05:12--> 00:05:13

He said

00:05:14--> 00:05:15

lenzuola

00:05:19--> 00:05:33

means the feed of every single slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala will not be removed from that station that position as they stand before a loss of power data has an Ottawa unterliegen question about four things.

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

You're going to be asked

00:05:38--> 00:05:42

an answer for these four things. What are these four things?

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

your lifetime?

00:05:48--> 00:05:50

How long have you lived

00:05:51--> 00:05:53

2030 years.

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

I'm gonna give you health on fire.

00:06:02--> 00:06:38

So you're going to be asked about this time I've given you 60 years of your life. What did you do? What did you do with this time? also less power the hour they asked me to unshare Barbie, female, not just the most critical period of your lifetime. And others, which means you use time when you were young. When you were young, how did you spend this time? Because the moment the moment I say a young man or young woman, what does come to your mind will always lead to something negative.

00:06:39--> 00:06:53

So how we can program that every time we bring youth and the young ones we can associate that loneliness, and wrong do with wine? It seems to be a new trend.

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

But I'll also ask you about this age.

00:06:59--> 00:07:01

Now, when does it start?

00:07:02--> 00:07:02

That's

00:07:03--> 00:07:14

when you're going to be asked about that youthful age when you have the strength and the power and the ability to move around and so on. What did you do with that memorandum? Listen.

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

While I'm

00:07:19--> 00:07:24

while you work, you're going to be a boss, you're going to be asked about your money, the thing that you strive for,

00:07:25--> 00:07:35

so hard for to learn on your own firm square by the blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But he should still ask you, where did you get that from? men?

00:07:36--> 00:07:39

were female and Baba, and what did you spend?

00:07:40--> 00:07:41

How did you spend that?

00:07:43--> 00:07:45

You spend you to care for

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

a loved one.

00:07:53--> 00:07:57

And the knowledge that you have the knowledge that you have? What did you do with that?

00:07:58--> 00:08:02

When I say knowledge, most of us think about over the mountains.

00:08:03--> 00:08:06

They think about books they don't think about menu.

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

We don't think about this to be a source of knowledge that you're getting information. You've been you've been taught something, what are you going to do with this knowledge

00:08:23--> 00:08:28

coming at a time is running, whether they like it or not, you have to prefer something

00:08:30--> 00:08:36

you have an answer to what did you do during that free time that you had with your family?

00:08:37--> 00:08:40

How the brothers mentioned these columns.

00:08:41--> 00:08:44

They were combined in one line in the Arabic language

00:08:46--> 00:08:49

in Mashallah one for Allah, one Gita

00:08:53--> 00:08:58

in Ostrava, which means being used young age. One

00:08:59--> 00:09:30

means free time. One means wealth and prosperity. I mean money for these three together. When you come up with what happens when you're young, wealthy, lots of free time. You don't know what to do with that. What did he do? He said, my setup is a source of nuts, which means source of production. getting spoiled source of corruption is perhaps the greatest answer. Not a lot of

00:09:32--> 00:09:35

our kids, they're going to come to Springbrook.

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

It's a free time for

00:09:39--> 00:09:42

many of us to visit our children.

00:09:44--> 00:09:44

So

00:09:45--> 00:09:46

we give them

00:09:48--> 00:09:53

you give them money, you go to the car, and go and just basically do stuff.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

What do you expect a child to be in 16 although younger than that,

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

And they have all this free time.

00:10:03--> 00:10:21

They can structure their free time, it just because they're just finally our office right now. And they have all this was expected to do unless you train them to do it, they're not going to be doing the other thing. And they're responsible for

00:10:23--> 00:10:34

unless you plan something for your children and your family to enjoy together, they might not use this time wisely. And you perhaps you're responsible for them not using this time, very wisely.

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

Now mentality, my

00:10:43--> 00:10:51

two blessings, many people are deceived. Many people are deceived in regard to two blessings. Number one,

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

number two

00:10:54--> 00:11:14

is health. Being healthy, being able to wake up in the morning, and move your hands and your arms and your legs, and you move freely off your bed on your own. That ability to even use the bathroom, the ability to eat and enjoy your food, the ability to come and pray in the masjid, all of this is a great number you want

00:11:17--> 00:11:21

when you feel ill and sick, and you couldn't wake up, or

00:11:23--> 00:11:29

you feel the value of coming when unable to enjoy everything because you're sick. The second he said,

00:11:32--> 00:11:44

Bob Bob with his free time, free time. Most of us regardless how much time we spend at work, we always end up with plenty of free time, whether we recognize that or not.

00:11:46--> 00:11:50

Well, if you organize your life, clearly, you will see that there's so much done than

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

what

00:11:55--> 00:12:04

was taught. And he was trained to move himself from one level to the next. Never drop your guard down. Allah subhana wa

00:12:06--> 00:12:06

fayda.

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

One

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

which means when you're done, done doing work, which you guys do, when you're done working, your job is professional

00:12:20--> 00:12:35

while delivering the message to the world. So he was visiting himself in activated on worship constantly. And towards the end of the day when he comes usually say after you're done, you need to do get some rest. But for us otherwise a lot of

00:12:37--> 00:12:46

a lot older than when you're done. That's when you need to stand up in 15. Which means this is now when you start spending more time between me and you.

00:12:49--> 00:12:50

So whatever you did outside, that's

00:12:52--> 00:12:57

not what you need to do, or for the people now you need to do the thing for you. And the last

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

thing

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

you spent so many hours,

00:13:04--> 00:13:09

nobody knows how much time is spent there. That doesn't mean you did your job with your family or your children.

00:13:11--> 00:13:18

living in a society that is very demanding, very demanding. The lifestyle is different. It's not like before and how many of you, they always fantasize

00:13:20--> 00:13:24

jumping on trees and doing all that stuff and so on. Our kids don't have this luxury.

00:13:26--> 00:13:34

Therefore, if you want them to enjoy you need to be active participants and they will have lots of free time and lots of

00:13:37--> 00:13:38

use that one.

00:13:40--> 00:13:41

So kind of Allah,

00:13:42--> 00:13:50

Allah, they understood the value of time, even to the second even to the second and split seconds.

00:13:52--> 00:13:54

One day he saw Amara

00:13:56--> 00:14:04

so is this young man. He saw him he said, he said his father, basically a matter of fact, he said he was an older man.

00:14:05--> 00:14:19

In the story. He said Amara one day he saw my father, he saw my father. He was an old man and he passed by his land and he saw that the land now is kind of becoming barren land is not being taken care of but it was

00:14:21--> 00:14:22

called a

00:14:24--> 00:14:24

million now.

00:14:27--> 00:14:32

What's wrong would you want to work on your on your field to plan something and prove

00:14:36--> 00:14:38

that I'm too old for this now.

00:14:40--> 00:14:41

I might

00:14:42--> 00:14:45

have thought of as demonic because I swear

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

I will emphasize that

00:14:49--> 00:14:49

you should not some

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

and then

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

he said I came one day and I saw walk in with my dad.

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

planting the trees.

00:15:03--> 00:15:04

So here's an old

00:15:09--> 00:15:13

Decima value that you don't retire, there is no such thing as retirement yet.

00:15:15--> 00:15:19

Most retirement plans are not designed for those who have a mission on Earth.

00:15:21--> 00:15:55

Retirement that is for people who are just waiting to die. But for Muslims, there is no such thing as retirement, you move on from one phase to the other, from one project in your life to the other, it's an important thing. That's the same thing to you week end is not just for for you to rest, on work, and so on. All that is for you to now start another project focusing on your family and your children. And if you have enough days off that you can use, you have to use some of those days, during spring break with your family, with your children.

00:15:56--> 00:16:04

You have to use them, spend some time with your kids, and spend some time with them do something that is useful for yourself and for your children.

00:16:06--> 00:16:09

When it comes to the value of time, to the value of

00:16:11--> 00:16:28

one on one that is crucial for us to understand in order to appreciate that is to be well organized. All I'm asking for you, I'm not asking for you so much. All I want is just to be well organized, organize yourself. And so your priorities right?

00:16:29--> 00:16:37

Most of us the moment we go off work that said we shut down our system. We don't turn we don't think to communicate again.

00:16:39--> 00:16:53

We always think that I did my job for the rest of the day. And I have not to go and relax. So what I do with the rest of the evening, wasting time, perhaps some TV going and socializing. And the last thing that comes to mind is come and bring your children to them.

00:16:55--> 00:16:56

Because you're too tired

00:16:58--> 00:17:13

and exhausted. And that's exactly the point. That's what the law is the law says is that this is will be the opportunity to learn and to grow. When the resources when you're tired, but you put more effort to grow.

00:17:15--> 00:17:16

When you're done

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

back into

00:17:19--> 00:17:22

hard work, that's when you move on to the next

00:17:25--> 00:17:30

retiring by the end of the day, the end of the week, and the end of our life and

00:17:31--> 00:17:35

that we miss so many opportunities, the most valuable time is wasted.

00:17:38--> 00:17:40

How can we value that time?

00:17:41--> 00:17:43

The number one way of doing that is?

00:17:44--> 00:17:56

Put yourself in the reckoning? Meaning you put yourself to the account. How often do you sit down? How often do you sit down and write down your achievements in life in regard to the

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

How often do

00:18:00--> 00:18:07

we do our vision statement or mission statements, our objective and plans for our careers

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

and how we're organized we are. But when it comes to our ultimate vision and ultimate mission statement, which is what we want it

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

to be

00:18:20--> 00:18:29

how often they sit down and start planning for the afternoon correctly to see how much we can achieve in such a very short time like 50 or 60 years. We're talking about.

00:18:31--> 00:18:33

We are talking here about Jenna

00:18:35--> 00:18:40

paradise, the width between the heavens and the earth. There is no comparison to whatever you earn the

00:18:41--> 00:18:56

day after. But it needs someone who devotes someone who would use the time wisely and someone who would put themselves to that account. So always want to know all those checkpoints so that we don't lose focus on cost or concentration. The other thing

00:18:57--> 00:19:07

is that you set your priorities, you set your expectations from yourself. So hi. Many of us we lose time because our expectations from the ACA is very low.

00:19:14--> 00:19:15

Are those

00:19:20--> 00:19:33

we set our standards so low, that whatever we do whatever we achieve, an hour, an hour time, whatever the time that we have to do, it should be fun. But those who set the

00:19:34--> 00:19:39

expectations for themselves and they are so high. Those are the people who spend their time.

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

Those are the people who will do that. I will do the right thing

00:19:50--> 00:19:57

than commodity or lost profits. This offering is so precious. It's so expensive. commodity is nothing but

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

that's what you need to give it the

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

Often, you can't just have a list of things, but you have to put more of your time in shall have the data and set your standards high in regard to the

00:20:11--> 00:20:14

event, the law. One of the things that reminds people wonder

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

about the value of time, when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

keep reminding yourself,

00:20:26--> 00:20:28

keep reminding yourself regarding

00:20:29--> 00:20:30

the thing that

00:20:31--> 00:20:37

destroys all pleasures, the thing that destroys all? What is it? That

00:20:40--> 00:20:55

That doesn't mean to scare you off? That doesn't mean to discourage you from doing the thing that you're already doing? No, it means you remind yourself to use your time wisely. If you know that I'm going to be dying tomorrow, what you're going to be doing,

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

if you truly believe in the afterlife, you live in German now.

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

What will you be doing today, that's what it means, means you use your time wisely, you will become far more focused. But it will always depend on on this false hope. Extended lifespan does like an eternal life for yourself, then you will never feel the urgency of doing anything properly, perfectly in the mind, the mind,

00:21:23--> 00:21:28

the mind yourself that there could be tomorrow after tomorrow, or the next day.

00:21:31--> 00:21:43

Every single day is a missing. That's why unemployment has an impossibly low data. He said he said Manhattan Jr. is a young fella. He says this

00:21:44--> 00:21:49

timeline that's on your mind is what predicts just

00:21:51--> 00:21:55

yesterday. And it's all been done and gone with what you have done.

00:21:57--> 00:21:59

So tomorrow, tomorrow.

00:22:02--> 00:22:08

And today, that is your day. He says that is your day. So do their best, every single,

00:22:10--> 00:22:18

every single day is an opportunity for success. That's an opportunity for those opportunity to improve and grow.

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

And

00:22:21--> 00:22:25

I want you to focus, I wanted to make sure to make

00:22:26--> 00:22:30

clear, you still have more than 10 days until the beginning of spring.

00:22:31--> 00:22:34

If you have family, your children.

00:22:36--> 00:22:40

And if you don't spend some time with those from your family members.

00:22:41--> 00:22:42

Just do some

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

lot of

00:23:08--> 00:23:09

money brothers and sisters.

00:23:10--> 00:23:13

So some of you might say what can I do?

00:23:16--> 00:23:22

What can I do? I don't have any ideas, any suggestions of Hamburg. Tonight, after

00:23:24--> 00:23:25

myself

00:23:26--> 00:23:36

will be lecturing and discussing how to use your spring break while the title will be before spring break stops.

00:23:39--> 00:23:48

Come on, join us to discuss together some of these practical and practical suggestions on how to do spring break while the

00:23:49--> 00:23:52

children while your teenagers and even

00:23:53--> 00:23:55

family members. This is very crucial.
