It Will Cost You Everything

The pure and noble purpose of religion is nothing other than the transcendence of the self, the ego, the nafs, for only through liberation from ego-based consciousness can a human being ever attain to truth, success, joy and happiness.

Religion and spirituality are the training and the education, and life is the test. The answer is and has always been, as taught by all of the Messengers and Prophets of God, surrender, humility, sincerity and righteousness.

True piety and spirituality necessitate jihad an-nafs, the sacred and holy struggle against the self, for only we must recognize and realize that unless we accept that our real enemy is within, we are doomed, and the ego will destroy our lives, it will cost us everything.

The greatest danger comes from the enemy we do not know and see, and our greatest enemy hides within. Not facing the self precludes the possibility of developing consciousness and taqwa, and keeps a human being condemned to the lower state of unconsciousness and ignorance known as jahiliyya.

Yet by learning to awaken beyond and transcend the self, happiness and success are possible, not only in this life, but eternally.

The Power of Focus

Your FOCUS determines your reality.

The key to success in life and in business is in harnessing the power of focus and holding the vision of your goals in sight and in mind.

What we focus on expands, and by focusing on our goals to the exclusion of anything else, we can make rapid progress towards attaining them.

In this short video, you'll learn about the Power of Focus and how you can:

Transcend and Move Beyond the Past
Choose Results Over Excuses
Keep Your Vision Focused on Your Goals

Make Conscious Your Fears

Subconscious fears that if not made conscious and brought into the light of awareness to be cleansed and purified will inevitably play themselves out in our lives, ultimately leading to failure in vital areas such as our health and wellness, marriage and family, and business and career.

The goal of al-Islam is the purification of the self from all that is a result of the lack of faith made real, and through the work of self-development and tazkiyyah, we have the opportunity to draw nearer to our Lord Most High.

You Attract What You Are

One of the greatest errors we can make is to play the role of a victim and not embrace personal responsibility.

Al-Islam necessitates personal responsibility, and by the Holy Will of Allah Almighty, the Universe is continually seeking to show us what we are choosing from within.

In this video, I briefly discuss the law of attraction and how you attract what you are, meaning we attract to ourselves what is in vibrational harmony and resonance with our subconscious thoughts, beliefs and states.

Yet by playing the role of a victim, not only are we forced to continually experience similar circumstances, we fall deeper into unconsciousness and negativity, which are counter to al-Islam, the path of positivity.

Only by knowing and purifying oneself can we awaken and ascend to the Divine Presence of Allah Almighty, and attain to peace, success and prosperity in both this life and the next.

Me Versus We

Modern materialist culture does its greatest harm in increasing selfishness and self-centeredness, and thus, we as human beings have become weaker than ever before.

Throughout human history, we have come together in expanding circles of solidarity, and traditionally have put the success and survival of the family and tribe above selfish personal interest, knowing that this in fact best ensured our happiness and success. Modern research proves that the more we operate from a place of selfishness and self-interest, the less happy we are, and the the more we operate from a place of selflessness, the greater our levels of fulfillment.

In this video, I invite you to reconnect with your family, your friends, your community, and to begin coming together for strength, support and solidarity.

United we stand, divided we fall. Together we rise.

What is Sacred Knowledge?

While there are many fields of knowledge, the ultimate goal of all knowledge is knowledge of the Divine.

And towards this end, the one field of knowledge that is most fundamental and essential is the Knowledge of the Self.

It is all too easy to become distracted by the religious sciences and fail to pursue the very path they are meant to aid one upon.

To truly know God, we must as human beings come to know ourselves, and this then constitutes the most vital field of Sacred Knowledge.

The essence of Sacred Knowledge is self-awareness, for it is but the self, the ego, that veils us from the Divine Presence of God.

Use Your Power of Speech Consciously

The sacred spiritual warrior who walks the path of spiritual asceticism (zuhd) seeking awakening and consciousness, and to live a life of noble and honored divine service, must take great care with his or her words, for your words carry divine power and authority.

Be mindful of your speech, and use your words to attract and create only that which is good and positive.

This is the End

The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) continually advised his companions to remember death often, and to take the time to visit cemeteries and graveyards to cultivate a shift in consciousness from life based in dunya, the world of form and illusion which is temporal, to life eternal, akhira.

Only by remembering and preparing for the end of our journey in life can we discover who we truly are and our potential. Paradoxically, only be facing and accepting death can we truly live.

Fear of death is the source of all fear, and transcending fear is to transcend death. This is awakening, illumination and enlightenment.

Don't Judge Others

One of the great errors we make as human beings is judging others in the mistaken belief that we are somehow better, forgetting that any good in us is purely a mercy from God Most High, and that if left to our selves, our own egos, we would be as oppressive as any.

In this short video, I remind that in al-Islam, our primary duty is the cleansing and purification of our own selves, and that we must leave judgement to the One, Allah Ta'ala.

Allah is the Source of All Joy, Love and Prosperity

Normally as human beings we seek happiness and fulfillment in things, in the world of form, yet happiness can only be achieved and experienced when we realize that the Source of all things is God, Allah Almighty, the Creator.

Through this, we are able to enjoy the gifts of God and use them as a means to draw closer to the Divine Presence, and so grow personally and spiritually while experiencing authentic happiness and joy, and freedom from fear and anxiety.

Negativity is Contagious

Contagious diseases are not limited to but the physical dimension, as in viral or bacterial infections. Of even greater concern are spiritual, psychological and energetic diseases.

In a world where the general focus is outward upon the external, upon physical forms, these are often little understood. Yet they affect us constantly and contribute to our health and happiness.

Thoughts are energy, and through meditation and spiritual practice, you can learn to protect yourself from negative and damaging environments and people.

Islam encourages of associations of light, circles of zikr (dhikr), and the formation of communities based in faith, belief, love and compassion.

Love is the Ultimate Game

It can be said that life is an education in learning how to love, and that the very purpose of life, as taught by the noble prophets and messengers of God, peace and blessings upon them all, is to learn how to love.

As human beings, we are driven by the fundamental need for love, which is the deep desire for oneness, for unity, for wholeness and for peace. Yet the single impediment to love is the self, the ego, mind-based consciousness.

To truly learn to experience and live in love, we must as human beings transcend the self, become selfless rather than self-centered and selfish, and ultimately become love itself.

This is best learned in the sacred relationship of marriage, and by fully and totally embracing personal responsibility, we can, rather than play the role of victims who learn nothing, actually learn to remove the elements of ego within ourselves and awaken to love, the ultimate prize.
