Assalāmu ʻalaykum wa rah͎matullāhi wa barakātuhu. Alh͎amdulillāh wa-s͎allāhu wa-salāmu ʻālá rasūlillāh. Ammā baʻd.

My advice, in shā Allāh, to our brothers, yaʻnī (meaning), in the Philippines, in this morning which is 29th September, 2019 the 30th of Muharram,1441.

Is that first and foremost is to be serious in studying, to be sincere in studying - by being serious. Ikhlās͎ is important in everything that we say and do because actions will not be accepted unless they fulfill two conditions Ikhlās͎ (sincerity) and Ittibāʻ (following the Sunnah).

So being sincere in everything that we say and do. We are short. We fall short. We are human.

(كل ابن آدم خطاء وخير الخطائين التوابون)

"Every son of Adam commits mistakes, and the best of those who makes mistakes are those who repent"

But we be repentful on a daily basis. Turn to Allāh subḥānahu wa taʻālá on a daily basis. Morning and evening remembering Allāh, remembering Allāh much. More than remembering our parents, more than remembering our dunya affairs. Remember Allāh much because He is the one who created us and He is the one who we will return and remembering Allāh will help you and me keep shayt͎ān at bay - keep him far away. Dhikr, dhikrullāh keep shayt͎ān away.

To be serious in studying. First the Qur-ān and Arabic and to strive your utmost in that and likewise to follow that up with righteous actions and be examples. We are few in number, but as Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʻālá) said,

(قليل من عبادي الشكور)

(Few of My slaves are grateful).

So be of the few that are grateful and Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʻālá) will raise you many levels. May Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʻālá) aid us in learning the Qur-ān, the Fātih͎ah, the last juz - juz ʻamma - the... at least and furthermore the Forty H͎adīth. Learn how to recite them, to read them correctly.

May Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʻālá) protect us and aid us and forgive us our shortcomings. Wa-salāmu ʻalaykum wa rah͎matullāhi wa barakātuhu.
