* Mohammed and so on

00:01:03 --> 00:01:07

Majid brothers and sisters, Mario Brothers and sisters, this

00:01:08 --> 00:01:35

graph is moving on into building information. And a roadmap for the future for this center of this community development Islamic community in Charlottetown. Islamic Center is moving forward one step at a time. And his people move on as communities. They want to have a vision, they want to have a clear vision for themselves. They want to know what they're doing. What are the long term vision, what are the short term vision, ethnic communities through service

00:01:37 --> 00:01:37


00:01:38 --> 00:02:04

even individuals, even individual they function in the exact same manner. Families, they also function in the same manner, you have long term business, and you have short term vision, you will try to plan exactly what you're looking for five years from now, and what you want to have towards the end of your life. This is building a vision for yourself and building our own world to get the best roadmap for ourselves.

00:02:07 --> 00:02:24

process of wanting to send us books on on leadership and personal development. But when you see the sooner the profits, all of a sudden, it was way before all these developments, administration and leadership and management and so on.

00:02:25 --> 00:02:33

sallallahu Sallam when people used to ask us to ask some simple questions, he would give them big goals and big vision so on.

00:02:35 --> 00:02:51

And this, I would like to share with you a very short time, perhaps most of us, we know that by heart, just two words. But this is vision established a vision for individuals and for them. And this is

00:02:54 --> 00:02:59

all the alarm clock which was reported as a Muslim. He came to the prophets of

00:03:01 --> 00:03:04

Allah cola in Islam in Poland last

00:03:06 --> 00:03:18

year, he said almost wholly Islamic Allah Tell me something about Islam. I want to know something unique about Islam, that I don't have to ask anyone about enough to

00:03:19 --> 00:03:22

just tell me something you need. One, when you look at this question,

00:03:23 --> 00:03:24

this man, so

00:03:25 --> 00:03:29

definitely, he spends so much time thinking about

00:03:30 --> 00:03:32

it. He was thinking about what he needs to do.

00:03:33 --> 00:03:46

He has his own plan. He has own vision. But perhaps he tried maybe failed. Maybe he did something volunteer satisfaction. He did a lot of things. But then finally, he went to the master.

00:03:47 --> 00:03:48

He went to his coach.

00:03:50 --> 00:03:52

And he asked him the simple question

00:03:54 --> 00:03:56

that I've been trying. I've been trying something

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

new, what would you tell me about it's not something I don't have to ask anyone until

00:04:05 --> 00:04:17

now, if someone comes to ask me this question, perhaps I'll give them a long term, three months plan or even program that we have to take together and go together. But also realize that a lot of similar to what

00:04:22 --> 00:04:24

he said, you say, I believe,

00:04:25 --> 00:04:28

and then become steadfast on the statement.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:45

You just say, I believe and then become truthful. That's the meaning of it. You become truthful for this word, and the word must stop them, which means perseverance means steadfastness, you remain truthful to this path.

00:04:47 --> 00:04:59

So it's not just a lip service. And if you ask any coach, and the life coach, if you ask anybody who plans for the future, one of the many things they tell people in order to feel happy in this life to achieve your goals.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:07

To be genuine, and to be truthful, to be truthful with yourself, and what you say and what you claim, and his

00:05:08 --> 00:05:21

gain in this man, a long term goal, and a short term goal is given him a long term vision and a short term. He says, hold on until you say I believe in Allah.

00:05:22 --> 00:05:24

Now, it's a long term vision.

00:05:26 --> 00:05:32

It's a long term vision. Because when you say you believe in Allah azza wa jal, how soon Are you going to meet your goals?

00:05:36 --> 00:05:36

Seven years?

00:05:38 --> 00:05:52

How soon Are you going to achieve the goal you're going to be working on which is entering Elgin, that's going to be long term is something that for a very long, long time, but it's all based on what it's based on.

00:05:55 --> 00:05:55

That I believe

00:05:59 --> 00:06:04

I believe in that I'm going to be truthful are they are persevere in patience, and continue until

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

that is now the long term vision.

00:06:09 --> 00:06:11

And that's just

00:06:13 --> 00:06:13

the beginning.

00:06:14 --> 00:06:16

He praised those who believe

00:06:19 --> 00:06:20

me that he can

00:06:22 --> 00:06:22

hold on,

00:06:23 --> 00:06:28

this is the book, this is the book, there is no further

00:06:29 --> 00:06:30


00:06:32 --> 00:06:34

For those who are writers, then we'll

00:06:35 --> 00:06:53

describe those writers people, those who seek guidance and find guidance in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Those who would benefit from that, what was the first attribute, the following is mentioned five attributes, three of these five, feel this five correlated to the hereafter.

00:06:57 --> 00:06:58

And it's all based on

00:07:02 --> 00:07:04

those who believe in the unseen meaning

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

for us living in the society,

00:07:12 --> 00:07:15

we have the evidence of his presence of his dog.

00:07:17 --> 00:07:18

And we believe,

00:07:19 --> 00:07:40

we know that the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala is true, even though we have inherited from the prophet SAW said of himself, but we took a generation after generation, and we believe in we have seen the miracles of the Quran coming true in this world in this life, in this time. And we believe in that. And yet many of these prophecies and many of these promises a loss of power

00:07:42 --> 00:08:06

will come in the future. And you shall see that on the Day of Judgment, so you have to have faith. This is the first thing to start your own roadmap. And your own vision is number one, is to have faith. And to say, I believe you say that. And then what comes next is very important as well. But before this, how can I understand my ILA

00:08:07 --> 00:08:11

as an oma men, women, young adults, even the youth, particularly youth,

00:08:13 --> 00:08:26

particularly youth, unfortunately, we just cannot keep bringing them to schools give better to have a heart and programs, we keep bringing them to Sunday school service, and teaching them the same thing over and over and

00:08:28 --> 00:08:37

we don't take them and coach them in life, and move them to the next level. It's all about academic education, they have to memorize this article.

00:08:38 --> 00:08:42

And if they don't mention the six articles are fit for you is to fail.

00:08:43 --> 00:08:53

And they couldn't count them, counting them along the edges, and the books and so on, that means no. But I know so many people, they can count to the six articles.

00:08:55 --> 00:08:55

To them,

00:08:57 --> 00:08:58

to walk upon this belief,

00:08:59 --> 00:09:02

they need to know and when they believe in the last power,

00:09:03 --> 00:09:12

that they walk upon this belief in their life, and that will take them to the next level of their vision. So when you believe Yes, as Muslims, we all have that General.

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


00:09:17 --> 00:09:19

in the interest of books and and beyond and so on, but there isn't,

00:09:21 --> 00:09:22

there is no amount of

00:09:23 --> 00:09:45

detail in the last panel. That is something we talked about this past Wednesday, in the half of the program. And we mentioned that the more you know about them, the more conscious you become what you do what you say, the more conscious you become, the more aware you become of your position before you know what are the most times and you know yourself.

00:09:46 --> 00:10:00

The more you know, the better the vision will be clear the vision will become clear. Many of us will have that general belief in our lives, but we lack the detail the detail believe that we should

00:10:00 --> 00:10:15

Take us to the extra step. You know, even when you make your plan when you go to the coach life coach, and when you have someone to train you for the job, they start to one step at a time. Many people, they say the first few sessions, and then they put one because they think they know enough.

00:10:16 --> 00:10:18

And they never follow up to date more details on

00:10:20 --> 00:10:24

how the center would come to be live in Atlanta, Georgia. And then beyond that,

00:10:25 --> 00:10:29

we have the general knowledge. And we'll just act in faithfully we perform our

00:10:31 --> 00:10:42

handler, which is great. This is great. There's no doubt about it. But we limit ourselves. Because we don't have that long term vision clear to us. We don't know more details

00:10:43 --> 00:10:46

about the messengers and other books about the message of the Prophet.

00:10:47 --> 00:10:56

And because of the limited knowledge, limited knowledge that we have, our vision about our faith or practice, is very limited.

00:10:58 --> 00:11:01

So when the man came to the prophet SAW a lot of them he was concerned

00:11:06 --> 00:11:09

about Islam, something I would never ask to ask them

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

to be

00:11:13 --> 00:11:16

admitted. And acknowledging that I believe in

00:11:23 --> 00:11:30

the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, there's so many ways of proving that you do believe. And the second part, he said,

00:11:31 --> 00:11:32

and then

00:11:34 --> 00:11:37

you need to be possessed power, look at these words.

00:11:40 --> 00:11:43

You learn the process of teaching him number one, to have faith.

00:11:44 --> 00:11:56

You have to believe in what you want to achieve. Even if you believe that you have a business plan, a solid business plan. If you believe in that you work upon you make it happen. If you believe

00:11:58 --> 00:12:03

that the Hereafter is true, if you believe that agenda has the green agenda is

00:12:05 --> 00:12:11

if you truly believe in that, then you can work on making that plan come true.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:55

And if you truly believe in that, you put every possible effort to make it happen. So you need to believe in that vision. You need to believe in yourself for yourself. And also for the after that so you can follow up on these goals. But if you always fluctuate because a man is not strong enough, yet, he came down in economics. Every time something happens to you on the way of achieving your goals. You get frustrated. And eventually you feel now you start losing part of your Eman. start becoming shaky. You need to learn more, and learn more and study more so that you can strengthen your Eman through the practice. Then we learn also the process of

00:12:56 --> 00:12:56


00:12:57 --> 00:13:03

is asking them to keep true and gentlemen, about the score. If

00:13:04 --> 00:13:20

you just say I believe in Alaska, and then you need to be steadfast. So say this is not enough. The Prophet is telling him you need to be genuine. You need to be truthful. By showing through your steadfastness and the swamp.

00:13:21 --> 00:13:26

Also, we learn from this perseverance, the prophets of the Lord

00:13:27 --> 00:13:30

is telling him something must happen and in the Arabic languages department.

00:13:32 --> 00:13:41

Which means to be straight, to remain on one path we don't deviate, don't go anywhere else. What are your thoughts in your heart in your, in your actions

00:13:42 --> 00:13:56

that persevere. And then he learned we learn from perseverance, another word resistance to remain steadfast, steadfast, you need to be persistent, is always reminding yourself of these goals.

00:13:57 --> 00:14:03

And when you go this through, when it comes to become distracted, you become you turn yourself back into that.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:06

Always we say

00:14:08 --> 00:14:11

we keep repeating that over and over again every single day.

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

guidance to the straight man is not sufficient. You need to know the guidance that comes in different categories

00:14:23 --> 00:14:24

will be diagnosed.

00:14:25 --> 00:14:25


00:14:27 --> 00:14:43

will he doesn't immediately have this. You have guidance you look and first of all, you look for guidance for the straight path. You're looking for that guidance that leads you to the straight path. But most of the straight path that's not enough. You need guidance to remain on the straight path.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:46

So whenever you ask a lot, it's

00:14:48 --> 00:14:52

not just about your mom, bring me to the straight down. No, y'all want to

00:14:53 --> 00:14:59

keep me there, helping persevere to remain and stay on the straight path. So we learn from this

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

Mr. Watson and

00:15:03 --> 00:15:17

his teaching this month in this tour, you say, I believe you said, I believe and then remain steadfast on that statement. This is the roadmap. It's now a long term vision. And then the short term vision comes from the word

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


00:15:20 --> 00:15:25

That's when you need to start planning your mind. According to that belief, so my size,

00:15:27 --> 00:15:31

my fasting is a priority for the church, it was a priority being kind of generous to

00:15:33 --> 00:15:53

law is a priority. All these other factors of the profits of these are how you show your steadfastness on the back. This is how you do it. And you keep resistant if you're trying and trying and trying as much as you can. What do you get? If you become steadfast on this path? A lot of cameras are found in the living

00:15:54 --> 00:15:56

room must have been it

00:15:57 --> 00:15:58

a lot.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:07

Those who say Our Lord is a lot what does that mean? To

00:16:11 --> 00:16:13

those who say I believe

00:16:14 --> 00:16:20

in Allah, Allah, Allah, Lord, so must affirm. And then they're

00:16:21 --> 00:16:26

persistent on the stand on that statement, they were truthful, the statement, as a reward, the law says,

00:16:29 --> 00:16:31

a lot of bring down

00:16:33 --> 00:16:35

when the edges are wrong, what do you feel?

00:16:37 --> 00:16:43

tranquility, peace, serenity, that's what we look for many people or what they look for

00:16:44 --> 00:16:46

is peace, tranquility.

00:16:48 --> 00:16:51

They want to be happy. This is one of the

00:16:52 --> 00:17:10

and that's why they think happiness is being rich. Because when you're rich, you will have enough money that will save you from poverty, and suffering and struggling is not the case. Because we know from the real life, the more people that have money, the more war is.

00:17:12 --> 00:17:27

Because the more you upgrade into your lifestyle, the more scared you become to lose that lifestyle. And you're gonna start finding yourself to remain on that path. Because you're afraid that you're gonna be slash, you won't be able to provide the

00:17:28 --> 00:17:31

family with happiness.

00:17:33 --> 00:17:34

Happiness is beyond the material.

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

You have

00:17:43 --> 00:17:47

angels upon you. And that's when you feel these feel safe. And if you

00:17:49 --> 00:17:53

even if you have nothing to eat, and I've seen examples,

00:17:55 --> 00:17:55

up in the church,

00:17:58 --> 00:18:09

I've seen these people who have nothing in terms of Debian, literally nothing, you carry some donations for their for their house, you get it in there. But they're so generous, they insist you stay for a cup of tea.

00:18:10 --> 00:18:23

And this is a forgiving offering of hospitality. You look around in the house, they literally have nothing except for the mattress you're sitting on, there is nothing in them. And when you tell them about it, we can help you with anything more than we can help you with this.

00:18:25 --> 00:18:35

It's so ironic, that they're so happy. They're so excited. They have nothing in this room, but they have everything in their hearts.

00:18:36 --> 00:18:37

And you look at them.

00:18:39 --> 00:18:40

They come to us and

00:18:42 --> 00:18:42

they make

00:18:44 --> 00:18:56

our own poor judgment, perhaps would say, why would they even? Why would they do that? They don't even have anything. But they know that it's beyond just beyond this means that

00:18:57 --> 00:19:06

they remain persistent, because they know I have a long term vision. I'm looking to what is beyond this dunya

00:19:07 --> 00:19:11

I believe I'm gonna stay on this path until I meet my Lord.

00:19:13 --> 00:19:16

data that will melodica to

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

one of

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

these people law says about them. Last one.

00:19:24 --> 00:19:27

Don't be afraid. And don't be sad.

00:19:28 --> 00:19:31

What's the meaning of Don't be afraid? And don't be sad.

00:19:32 --> 00:19:33

To see this is

00:19:34 --> 00:19:35

very, very important

00:19:36 --> 00:19:39

for the people agenda for the people agenda and

00:19:41 --> 00:19:43

for those people, and

00:19:44 --> 00:19:51

don't be afraid and don't be sad. Don't be afraid in terms of what concerning what? Consider the future.

00:19:53 --> 00:19:58

Don't be afraid and don't be sad about what about the past.

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

So don't

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

Be sand Allah,

00:20:04 --> 00:20:09

one minute mom. So you don't have to worry about it, you don't have to be sad about

00:20:11 --> 00:20:35

it, you don't have to worry about what you lost. Because a lot, I will give you more in the future. And don't be afraid of the future lies, promise you that you won't die until your rescue provision has been fulfilled for you, you turn on the slide, and your provision shall be fulfilled. So a lot of data has promised in this sending the engines to give them better flight planning industry. So how about they said, Well, absolutely.

00:20:36 --> 00:20:38

So there's no fear, no status,

00:20:40 --> 00:20:43

and gender, then we give it a good deal.

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

So those are the people.

00:20:54 --> 00:20:57

And then they persevere in patience, and remain steadfast

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

as much as

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

everyone else. And that's when you find them very peaceful, and very collaborative.

00:21:14 --> 00:21:15

Last time,

00:21:18 --> 00:21:29

when you see these people why there's so much I was so peaceful. So there's definitely a secret beyond the material. And that is their long term vision, that our last panel

00:21:30 --> 00:21:31

in the

00:21:32 --> 00:21:33


00:21:37 --> 00:21:42

Now my advice for you. My advice to my brothers and sisters, is to hold on to this.

00:21:43 --> 00:21:48

Remember, and not too much and forget. So therefore remind yourself.

00:21:51 --> 00:21:52

You say I believe in

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


00:21:55 --> 00:21:56


00:21:57 --> 00:22:22

if you live in this world, and you know that you have a business opportunity that will bring you millions and billions of dollars, success, the ultimate success when you are willing to pay 1000s of dollars to get into the seminar of the most famous and well known life coaches in this business, you will be willing to pay 10s of 1000s for this seminar. And you're getting this for free from

00:22:24 --> 00:22:28

the best coach ever. And the best guy for having

00:22:55 --> 00:23:02

this type of steadfastness is also a command that was given to us and was given to the prospect of a loss, a loss.

00:23:11 --> 00:23:13

A loss of power does demand the process

00:23:14 --> 00:23:16

that you should deliver the message.

00:23:20 --> 00:23:25

And the last part also commands him and those repetitive knees came and believed in

00:23:28 --> 00:23:30

us in this place, that you also usually

00:23:32 --> 00:23:34

have steadfastness. But what is exactly

00:23:37 --> 00:23:43

it's not just being censored, but in terms of just your actions. The most important thing to remember is the heart.

00:23:45 --> 00:23:48

Your heart need to remain steadfast on this faith.

00:23:51 --> 00:23:53

Everything happens around you just keep shaping your humanity.

00:23:55 --> 00:23:56

How would you structure your

00:23:57 --> 00:23:57


00:24:09 --> 00:24:09

as well.

00:24:11 --> 00:24:16

So let's count that will give you what you need to work for the heart is the most important thing. Then second.

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

Your tongue also introduces a lot

00:24:25 --> 00:24:30

of data which you have no knowledge with even your tongue you need to worry about it. You need to be careful what you say.

00:24:33 --> 00:24:34

It's a very interested

00:24:38 --> 00:24:38


00:24:45 --> 00:24:46

just perhaps a man

00:24:50 --> 00:24:50

perhaps the

00:24:52 --> 00:24:59

middle one and you might send something out at the mercy of Allah. Allah will be pleased with you. That award will come out from your mouth.

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

In the eyes, right time, something needs to be said you say that word.

00:25:06 --> 00:25:10

Perhaps you won't even care about the time you have

00:25:12 --> 00:25:13

to hire.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:17

Something you might consider

00:25:22 --> 00:25:23

a lot of

00:25:24 --> 00:25:26

judgment because it's not such a what you consider

00:25:37 --> 00:25:41

perhaps another one won't say a word, we'll just say a word.

00:25:46 --> 00:25:49

And this person said that one

00:25:51 --> 00:25:55

didn't care. Incidentally, there was something significant differences in

00:25:58 --> 00:26:00

the last panel that will go this person

00:26:02 --> 00:26:03

could be backed by

00:26:04 --> 00:26:28

the feeling of someone you thought it was, it was okay to make fun of something insignificant, but it matters a lot. So you need to be steadfast by heart, but Bachchan as well as your actions, your mind is on your heart and your reaction will be shown on this on this trip. Now, I want you today inshallah, to happiness.

00:26:33 --> 00:26:34

Just copy this

00:26:36 --> 00:26:46

stuff. I know you guys have all these beautiful frames and all these, all these words and all these statements, and pictures and so on. Just put this on

00:26:47 --> 00:26:50

your desk, or at work

00:26:51 --> 00:26:52

of your main office.

00:26:56 --> 00:26:57

I believe

00:26:59 --> 00:27:00

a lot of money.

00:27:09 --> 00:27:10


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


00:27:17 --> 00:27:18

da da da

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