poet91, NYAssalamu Alaikum. Haha I love Yoda, and cool dude is back :) I've left my watch in places way too many times to not appreciate this. I don't know if this was exactly what you were intending but what I got out of it, or more from the title than the picture itself was that our time in this world is continuously ticking away. We should always keep an eye on our watch (life) and when faced with choices, we shouldn't risk not remembering. We should always make the choices that are safer rather than make a choice and regret it later. I don't know if that was the point but that's what I got from it. Can't wait for the webinar :)
Rasha, USI don't quite understand how it can apply practically, besides the watch scenario...Can we have examples?
@Rasha:Practical Examples: Instead of getting a gym membership, hire a personal trainer who will schedule FOR you.Instead of trying to motivate yourself to study, make a study date with a friend.Instead of trying to remember to purchase a gift for a family member, schedule an automatic ecard, for example, on the date you wish it to be sent.And so on. Choose automation, not manual. It's a big concept that I teach in Time Traveller.

Nabeel, CanadaAssalamu Alaikum,Great, practical tip that can be applied to so many everyday things. One example of using 'automation' is to setup an adhan reminder on your computer that goes off at the start time of each of the five daily salat. That way, you're reminded of the prayer at its prescribed time. It takes away the task of remembering the prayer time and keeps you in check.Wassalamu Alaikum
Magee,Canada,As-Salamu Alaikum Shaykh,I loved the whole Yoda thing, it was a nice touch, masha Allah. I find these cartoons AWESOME, because not only are they funny, you get some wicked lessons from them as well.I also really liked the Archer one too, for as you know, I am an archer =DShaykh, what were those Automated email sites you gave us at the Certification again?Jazakum Allahu khair,Hayyakallah,- br. MageeP.S. When will the: "Time Traveller" official comic book, by Muhammad AlShareef, be out in stores around the World?
Umm Amin, USAMasha'Allah, great example of AUTOMATING things. Some of us have these things built into our day, but it would be interesting if someone wrote a book on WAYS TO AUTOMATE THINGS IN YOUR LIFE....so if you have lots of great ideas on how to do that...get going. I would buy the book insha'Allah.
Mavs, USA-Jazakallahu Khayr for the webinar last night. This is an example of getting things off your mind IMMEDIATELY, to use it for "prime real estate" instead. Cool Dude doesn't have to keep thinking about his watch/glasses during wudu. By putting them in his pocket, he can focus on the task at hand (wudu) with complete concentration.So if there's something imp you need to get done, like paying your bills, do it ASAP. Simplify your routine by setting up your account online. Use freed time for more creative enterprises, projects, zikr, worship etc. -Also, by looking at the symbolism behind the 2 items you will notice CD is keeping important reminders nearby. He is less likely to lose track of time, less likely lose "sight" of his goals.
Automating things can save you lots of time, especially when you can invest your time doing more important things. Automate the things that can get in your way and waste your time. Example: pay your regular bills by automatic withdrawal. This way you don't miss any of them. The flip side of this is that you may forget to keep track of your account. Anyway, I will try to go over every little detail of my time and see how I can automate some tasks and let technology or habit do it for me. But isn't this something that goes against living consciously?
wow, I love this one :D
hmmm i think the moral of the story is that if you try and make something a habit, it will be easier for you next time and so you will not forget. The more times you do it the more times chances you have to prefect it
hennah uki lost 20+ watches in the manner of cool dude. womens' clothes seldom have pockets! now i just dont wear a watch!
MashaAllah your animations are definitely fun and helpful, esp cool dude and yoda, keep it brother!
LOL that was just too cute! im not too familiar with yoda, but am very aware of his, or its, fame! Very creative, so was not expecting it. And ya, great message, very brief and straight to the point! I have no idea how many times i left my glasses on the sink counter when making wudu, and LOST IT at times due to my forgetfulness! Subhanallah. Jazakullahu Kair! i should definitely pay attention with every little detail of my life, because every second counts! The result of such losses caused me to walk are practically half blind! Figuratively, but things were blurry. That goes to show the consequence of not giving every moment our full attention or else we'd aimlessly walk through life blinded.
ArifUSAMost practical tip so far. JazaakAllahu Khayran for sharing it.
assalam alaikum,just to get it off my chest. WIthout those cartoons, the message and morals would come as more serious. Maybe I find them cheesy because I am a "left brained" guy without any emotions ....anyways, jazaks for the messages but the delivery could be more professional, logical and organized.ma salam
Asslamu ALaikumvery good !!but Brother you forgot to shut the water tap !!or may be it is sensor activated :) automateddjazaka Allahu khayrsakina , umIbrahim
Salam Alikom i dont understand this wat ur trying to mean by yoda i wish i can be more into this ideas
aa ok my name is karima from usa sorry i wasa just trying to understand every 1 talks wat is yoda and wat r u all talking about animations and cartoons i wanna understand fil me in if possible Salam Alikom
@Karima from USAYoda is like the head Jedi Master of the Jedi Order in Corussant... in a fictitious world. Lol, he's a character from a very popular movie series called: Star Wars. He's really old and wise, etc... so I believe Shaykh Muhammad was trying to crack a joke with that... Wallahu 'alam.I hope that explains it...Hayyakallah,- br. Magee
AbdulAziz Shaikh from India----------------------------------------Makes pefect sense to me! JazakAllah Khayr ya Shaikh.
Munirah, Montreal Salaams, Good tip... but what about the sisters? Jewellary....and no pockets in the jilbab..also do you have any suggestions about glasses? ....I take them off when I do Salaat and sometimes I dont want to put them on the floor in front of me in case someone steps on them...a chain around my neck swings about when I do ruku...(.wots the sunnah??) A great sheikh once told me that whenever I put something down I should say Bismillah. It does help but I need an automatic way.(..how about laser surgery/) Thanks so much for all the help you are giving us, you make our lives easier Jazukamullah hare (?)
Aisha,USassalamu alaikum,jazakaAllahu khayr i like this one except the Yoda part. thats really annoying. i cant stand that green thing...automation not manual. get it...jazakaAllahu khayr again.
Yusuf,USFunny cartoon, this was.Jazak Allahu khairan for sharing.
