The Simple Math of Success: Self – Ego = Divine Change + Happiness

The Qur’an tells us that “God does not change the condition of a people until they change their own condition” (13:11). We also know that the Prophet (God’s peace and blessings be upon him) told us that our greatest enemy is the ego that resides between our two sides. What is the ego (nafs), and why is it such a formidable foe? The current Muslim crisis can be solved only by divine change.

This talk will include a Qur’anic diagnosis and treatment plan for the current Muslim crisis.

Your Audit: Courtesy of Internal Reckoning Service

“That Day, We will seal over their mouths, and their hands will speak to Us, and their feet will testify about what they used to earn.” [Surah Yasin 36:65]
On the day when there will be no lies, deceptions, or injustice, we will be judged by our Lord, Who is Al-Hakam (the Judge). Everyone will come to know their fate by the manner in which they are handed their book of deeds. In regards to the reckoning on this Day, our beloved Prophet (s) is reported to have said, “”The first thing about which a man is going to be questioned on the Day of Judgment is prayer. If it is found to be sound, his other actions will be sound as well. If his prayer is not sound, his remaining actions would be spoiled.” (Al-Tabarani & Tirmidhi)
Furthermore, in the last verses of Surah Az-Zalzalah of the Holy Qur’an, a brief description of this judgment is enough to send a chill down our spines: “So whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it, and whoever does an atom’s weight of evil will see it.”

The Search for the Sound of the Soul

“Therefore, stand firm in your devotion to the upright faith – the nature made by Allah, the one on which mankind is created – and the laws of Nature ordained by Allah cannot be changed. That is the standard of true faith, but most among mankind do not know.” (30:30)

We are God’s greatest creation, perfect and innocent in our childhood. This is the beginning, the moment where we are precisely calibrated to the Truth. It has been described as our inherent nature, but since we are bombarded by modern dogma, human philosophies, and tampered traditions, it gathers dust waiting to be known again. Therefore, we ask the question, what is our true nature and why were we given it? And if we are to rediscover this natural state of ours, it certainly may need some polishing in order to see our unblemished reflection again. As a result, we may find something we had felt all along but simply ignored.

Creme de la Creme: Uthman ibn Affan

When the beloved Rasul passed away, the believers felt the enormity of their loss as some shed tears while others felt muddled and hopeless. Many of those who had falsely claimed to have embraced Islam were quick to revert back to ignorance. Driven by rare intrepidity, the four khulafaa upheld the flag of our deen, more than 14 centuries later their words are quoted and their lives are highly revered. Paragons of matchless virtue, faith, and character, their leadership skills remain unprecedented, may Allah be forever pleased with them. Join us as we journey through the past and study the characteristics that defined these individuals with practical applications to our own lives.
