Do we really want to achieve excellence or are we merely satisfied with being ordinary? At a Texas summer youth retreat, Siraj Wahhaj shares his observations that can help the believer progress on the road to excellence by improving one's overall understanding, appreciation and practice of Islam. In this talk, he makes a brief synopsis of the well-known hadith of Gabriel with an emphasis on the critical aspect of ihsan (striving for perfection). He also implores the audience to remember that the Islamic teachings are for one's benefit and that we must strive to learn and practice the deen. But this striving comes at a price! What is that price and are we willing to pay it? A great lecture for any Muslim, especially teenagers, who want to move from one level of faith and practice to the next. Other topics discussed: good and bad leadership, seeking leadership, fear and humility before Allah, demonstrating gratitude, and praying correctly with calmness. (Duration: 56 min)
