And we sent Sadat and salam upon the one who was called a saw the NLM mean, the one whom ALLAH chose as Imam and with Tolkien, the one who was sent as a lil al Amin know that Allah Subhana Allah has commanded us to be conscious of him when he says in the Quran Yeah, you hola Dena Armando Tapachula halka to call to Walter Mutanda Illa one to Muslim moon are you who believe be conscious of Allah, the way that you deserve that he deserves you be conscious of him and do not die except in a state
of Islam. Today's brief hutzpah is a beautiful Hadith. And I call it the five step prophetic plan. The five step prophetic plan. Our Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave us five steps in order to execute any plan. So anytime we have something we need to do go back to this hadith. This hadith lays out for us in five steps, what should be our methodology, our management, our modus operandi, how do we operate? Our Nabi? sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained to us in a hadith narrated in Sahih Muslim by Abu Hurayrah Radi Allahu Taala and and each of these phrases is beautiful.
We have to condense them because of the time first phrase, it begins a mineral away you are helped boil Allah, human mineral body for free, colon higher. The skilled believer, the powerful believer, the believer who knows something is armed is equipped with anything is better than the believer who does not have those skills. And both of them are good. This is the first point, we need to acquire strength skills. I'll move mineral Kawi the stronger believer stronger in what in anything stronger in physical strength, stronger in emaan, stronger in management, stronger in computer programming stronger in the knowledge of medicine, whatever is your field aim to be the best. The better
believer is the one who knows his field better and more mineral Kawi. The stronger believer our scholars say stronger here in any aspect. If you know something, if you're better at a skill if you have stronger Iman, it is better than the one who doesn't in that field where he couldn't hire and there's good in all believers, there's good and all the believers whether you have that skill or not, you have emaan you have good in you so that's the first point. acquire skills be the better believer. The second point
it hit us Allah million Farrokh aim to do something that will benefit you. Once you have skills you don't just sit back. It is sila Ma Yun Farrokh. Set some strategic goals, have a vision, have a plan. Do something useful with your life. This is what we're being told. We're being told be eager to do something that is beneficial. It is beneficial to have Iman and good deeds, be eager to have them. It is beneficial to have a job acquire a job it is beneficial to save money, save money, it is beneficial to have a loving family have a loving family you have to have desires, aims goals, you have to have a vision. If you don't have a vision nothing is gonna get done. So the second point is
Allah million Farrokh have that vision what do you want from life? What do you want to accomplish? What is your goal and you should have multiple goals my goal in the religious field is such and such my gold in the economic field is such and such my golden MyCorporation Corp is such as such my goal for my family life is such and such in every field, have a vision, have a plan, have a goal. It had us Allah Mayan Farrokh number two, number three was time in Villa. First and foremost after you have the vision before you do anything, seek help from Allah. Before you do anything, you have the vision in your mind. It's in your head, you have it in your goal. What should you do? Raise your hands to
Allah and make dua. It's there in Villa iya cannot go the way yaka Nestor in a star in Villa seek the help of Allah. Our scholars say you seek to help first and foremost by praying is to harder for that vision and goal praise the Hara. Oh Allah is this vision good for you, me. I want to be the CEO of my own company. That's my vision. Pray istikhara Oh Allah, if it's best for me to be the CEO of my company, make it happen for me.

Don't just throw in the towel. Don't be lazy. Don't just expect miracles to happen without you doing anything. No. Once you have the skills, once you have the vision, you pray this to heart and make dua to Allah. Now, you need to put in the sweat and the tears. You need to put in the physical effort. You need to put in plan A doesn't work, move on to Plan B doesn't work, move on to Plan C never give up what I try, just don't lose hope. Keep on doing it and then doing it and then doing it.

No. You tried your best you did with a loss with sincerity. But Allah had another plan. So therefore do not open up in one Hadith and one version. He said, thinking about what if opens the door for shaytaan shaytaan creates doubts in your
mind shut this door. It's the past it's done deal. Leave that chapter move on to the new chapter. If that chapter was not written for you, Allah has something better written for you memorize these five points and inshallah we will be successful no matter what happens May Allah bless me and you with and through the Quran may make us of those who is vs. They understand and to implement is headed and held on throughout our lifespan. I ask Allah's forgiveness, you as well ask Him for He is the fool and the ramen.
Al Hamdulillah Halawa de la had a summit Allah de la mia little Willem, you will welcome your caller who phoned ahead we're back in the fifth point of this five point plan. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought in one of the pillars of iman. And that is the pillar of other the pillar of huddart Allah who Mr. Shah found the pillar of I couldn't do anything it was Allah's decree. I tried but Allah had another decree so whatever Allah decrees is going to happen. And this shows us dear Muslims one of the biggest benefits of
believing in Fedora is that coddle brings a sense of peace to our lives. Other eliminates the doubt of the past. It eliminates the regret of indecision. What happened happened huddart Allah who Mr. Shah file, you and I could never have changed the past. Yes, learn from your mistakes, but do not dwell in your mistakes. Yes, learn from a mistake you might have done. But don't let that mistake dictate your future. Realize Allah had decreed something and that's it move on. And therefore one of the main points we derive from this beautiful Hadith and memorize the simple rule. Kadar predestination Yes, it is difficult to understand the concept is very philosophically confusing, but
one simple point we can all relate to. Kadar is never used to justify your future actions. It is used to console your past tragedies memorize this line. Kadar is never used to justify a future course don't say oh, it's Allah's cada they don't I don't have a company. No, you don't know what is your future? You don't know what is Allah's kada try to open your company try to be successful try but then other can be used for the past. Oh, I tried it didn't work out that Allahumma Shah fine and move on to something else, never justify a future decision based upon Qadr that is a misuse and an abuse of other rather Kadar can be used to console yourself for a tragedy of yesterday for a
calamity of a few years ago. You can say oh, that Allah that accident happened I lost money in the stocks such and such called that Allah Who am I shall file okay that's in the past. As for the future, you do not know Allah has other so expect the best from Allah as other and strive to get the best Kadar and inshallah who to Allah whichever path you go, it will be for your best coder. Even if you don't arrive at the coder you wanted. Allah's cover for you will be better than your vision of your cover for yourself. What Allah has chosen for you is better than what you have chosen for yourself. But you need to trust Allah and you need to have the positive thoughts of Allah. So you
put in the effort, you have that high vision and whichever path you find yourself in and wherever you end up. It will be Allah's other that is better for you and you only ended up there because you had positive thoughts of Allah and positive thoughts of other so do your brothers and sisters never use Kadar as an excuse for a future project. rather use cada as a constellation for your past for your calamities for your tragedies, cada Allahu wa Masha and do not go down this avenue of what if and how about and if only I had shut this door. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said opening this door is putting shade on in your head opening this door of how about this and if only I had
done that no, because that opens up doubts about Allah and doubts about color and there's no benefit in dwelling on the past May Allah subhana wa Taala make us of those who understand these beautiful prophetic wisdoms and act upon them Allahumma in NIDA and for aminu, Allahu Allah don't know if you have they don't be them but elogger Fatah wala hum Manila for Raja wala Deignan Illa Kadota whatever Maria one Illa sure feta what I see it on Ilya sarta Allahumma fildena Willie aquatennial Adina Saba, Pune, Bill Iman, what a treasure.
