promised this hour we'll make this joke. I can't help myself.
I don't like talking after we solve.
The reason why I don't like speaking after we saw should be pretty obvious. Because when he reads grind, it's like boom, right? It's, it's pretty epic. But when I quoted I'm just gonna say it open and I'm just gonna quote it so it doesn't sound as awesome when I reset grind, but I'm not worried. It's okay. Some people sound that big, some people look at
Apparently I know what's wrong with these kids. They think that because they're my kids, they got like a license to make noise Hey, be quiet.
So Mashallah, it's been a great night of amazing talk very, very sincere on this heart to heart discourse. This is the last talk for the night in sha Allah. And after this, we'll have a look, we'll have some working on prayer and inshallah, we'll get you on your way home.
I wanted to conclude the night on a concluding note, I didn't just want to have a random lecture, I wanted to conclude the program here tonight with what should be a concluding note. And overall, since we're in the last few nights of the month of Ramadan, and we're just about practically almost, it's only eight, nine days. So we're in the 10 nights of last night's of the month of Ramadan. So it's that we need to really realize what lessons we need to formulate some ideas we need to come to some type of a conclusion as to what are we going to go forward after the month of Ramadan? What are we going to do afterwards? What I carry out of the month of Ramadan?
Like chef Martin talked about it extensively and so I'm not going to reload that entire topic but you got the point. What's going to be left What am I going to be left over with what I'm going to be holding in my hands when it's all said and done? The day after eat
what and so I wanted to the concluding remarks I wanted to make are actually from obviously from the Quran, again in Charlotte's month of Ramadan. So it's the month of the Quran.
And I actually during this month of Ramadan, I've been doing a series on the draws within the Quran chronixx application. So all the wires that are mentioned are taught to us in abroad, like robots in academia. And so every night after that all we we do one two hour we study one ly extensively. Many of you who arrived a little earlier at the program got to hear the tail end of obesity or
one of the lessons that I covered last week, a week or 10 days ago, the first week or so of Ramadan. I wanted to kind of mention that here before you guys today and share that with you is from sutra number 10 to the universe I in number 85. And then it also kind of goes into the sixth sutra unison number 10 is 85 and 86. Allah subhanaw taala is telling us about Musashi Salaam and the followers and metallics among the believers at the time of mutuality, Salah Allah tells us that they said for our new Allah.
They said upon Allah alone, do we put our trust? Do we rely upon Allah alone? Do we put our trust and do we rely
on each other
robina latvija Latisha Allah, Allah, our Rob, our Lord, our Master, the one that created us, the one that provided for us, the one that sustains us, maintains this provides for us, protects us and guides us all those meanings are built into the word Rob, the one that I owe everything to Rabbana our Lord our mastery. Letter Gianna do not make us laughter john na, do not make us please. This is the form that in grammar that is called name. It means to forbid someone from doing something like lots of people don't stand up. Lots of them don't speak. Right. But when we use it with the last part of what Allah has to offer is what do i is the inferior asking the superior for something? Do I
is the inferior asking the superior? The most high for something that's not? So we use the command form? We use the forbidding form, but it doesn't literally mean like I'm telling God what to do. I'm telling you what to do. That's not what it means. It's a request. But why do we still use the command or the forbidding form? It shows desperation? Like Please don't make me Please don't make us all laugh. Please don't make us. Now what are we asking a lot. Don't make a sweat, fits. netta fits nothing. The word fits in
You've probably heard of the word before. All right, like brothers say go grow on campus, there's a lot of fishing out, right? So you use that word, you've heard that word, you've heard that term. But what is a really really mean? That word fits in classical Arabic in its root, the word means fits in it means a process of purifying gold and silver.
When you have minerals or golden silver, you have these natural elements. When you first dig them out of the earth, they have impurities mixed in with them. So it has the potential to be very valuable be very amazing. But it's a little polluted, it's diluted, it's mixed up with something. So you put it through a process. You put it through a process, and the process would be called fitna, you put it under heat or you put it on the fire and what happens, you separate the impurities from the good stuff. All right, and that's the purification process.
for human beings. In the Islamic terminology, the word fitna means trial, tribulation, some adversity, some difficulty. Now this word fits enough.
It can be used in two meanings. It can be the active form, or it can be the passive form, the one who causes with not the one that tests other people, and the one that is tested by other people, it means both things at the same time. That's why Allah uses this word. That's why I did not say that you need or must do need a lots of fitna the middle term, because it means both the people who test others and the people who are tested by others, it means both at the same time.
So what we're saying in this riser, banana,
mill home is volume in or large do not make us people who are tested by
and also do not make us people who test
and avoid the people that are bad. Literally, I'm keeping it simple. volume has a very means to misappropriate people who misappropriate that could mean people commit ship, that could mean people who commit sins, that could mean people who oppress others take the rights away from other people. But let's summarize it because the point here is to get the spiritual message here. It's not a grammar class. Right? So bad people do not make us people who are tested by bad people. Doesn't that make sense? It makes sense, right? It's very easy to understand, don't make us Don't make us tested by bad people.
Right, like at the time of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi salam when the Muslims were the minority, and they were in Mecca, and they were being oppressed or been allowed to fit in. I mean, all of these are some bad bad people.
Don't make us tested by that don't make us the object of their aggression, their violence, their oppression. That makes sense. It's a powerful drosten. Don't get me wrong. But that's a very clear understanding. And in our times, we're seeing that again, we have reason to make that law, not as severe as the sahabas condition was, but we have some very difficult circumstances, different parts of the world, but let it be, or even here in this country, with Islamophobia. Some people and their, their negative attitudes and sentiments towards Islam have been allotted on a fitna do not make us the object of their aggression, their violence, their hatred, don't make us a plaything for them.
Don't make us the object of their their animosity, their enmity, their hatred.
But there's another understanding of that word fits in that. And I explained this for those of you who might have been here in the session that we were doing. Many times in the Koran, you have a word that could have two meanings, like here, it could mean tested by or it can mean the people who test others when a word can have two meanings, which one is it? Which is right, which is wrong? Because we have this obsession with like, what's the stronger opinion?
because something's got to be right. Somebody better be wrong. Right? It night's not over to somebody who's wrong, right? So we usually have that type of an attitude. The Quran is who speech Allah speech? You ever you know what a double entendre is, when somebody says something, it could mean two different things. Right? If a human being can say something that could mean two different things, how could Allah Why do we have a problem understanding the superiority of a less feature of our speech is like a less superiority over us that's what the prophet SAW lesson.
as superior as Allah is to us, that's how superior the Quran is there anything any human being could ever say right or come up with.
So in the Quran, sometimes of us has a word or teaches us a supplication or has an ayah. And it can mean multiple things. You know what the correct answer is, it means all of those things.
I tell us often, this is from the principles of Quranic elements. So getting back to the point, so it means that don't make us people who are tested by bad people. But it also means do not make us the ones who test bad people.
Now that's kind of a little bit trickier to understand. That's why I started with the other one. That's straightforward. What does it mean don't make us the people who test other bad people.
Don't make us the test Don't make us the cause of the test. Don't make us the ones who are testing the bad people.
That brings to our attention a very, very important reality. And this the concluding thought, This is what I want you to go home with this right? I want you to drive home thinking about this, what's your what I want you to sleep on.
Becoming the test for bad people brings to our attention that Islam, religion, a lot of soul for
all of these things, they need to go past here, it needs to go past here.
It needs to come out of the pages and be alive, and be manifest within ourselves. We can talk to religion all day long. But if we don't start living your religion, if I don't live by the values that my religion teaches me, the morals and the ethics my religion gives to me, then you know what I do? I just end up becoming a test for other people.
You ever had a friend or a relative or an uncle, everyone's got an uncle that talks like this. Everyone's got an uncle who says this.
So when they say, oh, we're going to I'm going to go to the machine if
I don't go to the Open Day. Right? And it's like, Why are these people they pray? They talk religion. That's not a big cheat.
Yeah, guys. mudgett Board Member guy. It's like, yeah, nice guys. And uncle. He's a nice guy. He's like, Yeah, I do business in a big crook. Right?
Right. You know what I'm talking about, you know exactly what I'm talking about.
Similarly, if we keep talking religion, but we don't live it, we end up becoming the reason why people leave the religion. There might be a bad person out there.
But guess what happened? They read the Quran.
They read the Quran.
They read about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
They heard something amazing about Islam. They heard Islam has a solution to their problem.
And they came to the masjid. And they looked for a Muslim.
And we were so repulsive. I talk about myself, I was so repulsive in my behavior. In my attitude in my character in my conduct, I was doing exactly what the guy was looking for a solution for.
I was doing exactly what the guy was looking for the solution. I'm doing the same exact thing.
I just became the reason why that guy will turn around and will never look back at Islam number.
You know today, as it stands today, people who still take Islam and who still accept Islam and take Shahada, they do it in spite of us.
They don't do it because of us. They do it in spite of us. as just a cold hard God honest truth. It's too late at night to be beating around the bush with everybody as just a cold, honest truth. They accept Islam in spite of us.
And what we have to come to terms with what we have to realize is Islam was meant to be carried by us. When the when this when the wives of the prophets I send them were asked about Muhammad Rasul Allah telling me about his life. Tell me how he lived his life to kind of Hulu.
For his life, his character was the Quran.
Can I say that about myself? Can I even claim that about anybody else I know.
It's a tragedy Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was the reason and the Sahaba of the loved one who their character. You know, what's, ask you a little question. What's the country with the largest, largest Muslim population in the world today? Indonesia. Everybody knows everybody's got Wikipedia. Alright. Indonesia. All right. How can you son gets Indonesia?
YouTube videos, how does one get Indonesia?
businessman, businessman, not to say that they weren't preaching because the Sahaba were the ultimate diaries. I mean, they'd share Islam with anybody at any time. But it wasn't that they overtly went there as like missionaries to prosthet allies. They weren't evangelicals. They weren't like you know, brown thumpers like we say Bible thumpers. Right. That's not how they went there. They went there and they were doing business with people. People were like, wow, you're really really awesome guy. You're very honest. You're very, very nice. You're polite. You're there's something different about you.
I that's not how people do business here.
when that happened, then obviously that opens the door. Well, what's different about me I'm a Muslim. And that's how people accepted Islam.
I mean, when you when I was talking about earlier today was how knowledge
knowledge has just become another commodity to us. It's like money. Like we count money in our bank account, we count knowledge now, we measure knowledge.
Right? Like, I have more knowledge than you, right? He's got more knowledge than me, or they got more knowledge than we do. It's like we measured
I just saw some very old friends for a long time to get happy. Alright, so.
So knowledge, knowledge isn't just information like just, you know, you. It's like a commodity. It's like a status like you're ranking how many feet friends got on Facebook, how much knowledge I got, right? Knowledge is meant to
make you a better person, for a lot, just to put it simply as I can. Knowledge is meant to make you a better person.
Similarly, Islam isn't just a status symbol, it's just not a status quo is not just to be able to say, we're going to jump everybody's going to hell, and upstream, just like luck. All right, that's not what it's about. Islam is meant to make me a better person. And Islam will spread and we'll carry on if we think we're so impressed, we are so impressed with ourselves. That's actually a quality the process of warned us about it's called the urge of when you become impressed with yourself, we're so impressed with ourselves because this many people are taking Shahada nothing. This is nothing. If we were actually living up to what Islam requires of us when it asks us to do
which is not a whole lot. By the way.
It's just who are better people in our conduct in our character, the way we conduct ourselves, our honesty, our truthfulness or our our sincerity with people when we deal with them. Islam, which spreads like wildfire. This is the undeniable truth, folks, the Koran is the word of God Himself. canavalia Do you know what that means? That means Ally's talking.
How could anybody refuse that? How could anybody resist that? Muhammad Rasul Allah is always the most amazing man that ever lived, how can you resist that?
But it's because we're not living up to it. People need something tangible, something physical to be able to access it.
And when we do, inshallah, and it's not very difficult, this is that opportunity where we can make the decision, we can come to the conclusion, I'm going to turn things around. And if we turn things around, let me show you how easy and simple it is. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam I was talking a little bit about his character and his conduct earlier today. How did the prophets have some conduct himself with people? How did he deal with people, with love with compassion, with kindness and generosity, you put people before himself, you put people's needs before himself. He would sacrifice whatever you have to sacrifice himself in order to help other people.
That's what he was. In the early days of his song, there's a story about a man named to fail from the tribe of a dose. I shared this with our Mansfield congregation a few days ago, a man by the name of tufail, from the tribe of a dose he accepted Islam came to Mecca, very interesting story, how we accepted it, somebody came to Mecca and accepted Islam, with the Prophet talathi sermon and stayed for a while learned the basics of the religion. Then the prophet SAW said him said, Now you go back to your tribe, which lived a little bit farther away. And he said, you go back and you shared this message with him. He showed back up in a few weeks, very, very soon, like literally the time that it
would take to just journey back, be there for a couple of days and then journey back to Makkah. He's back again. In a month or so. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to faint, what are you doing back here?
So messenger of Allah, I went there, I gave them the message. They didn't accept, although lohardagan mcdu Allah destroys these people.
The Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam raised his hands, the Sahaba were saved sitting around, when they saw him raise his hands. They were like, Oh, no,
those people are gone.
Gone. Now you know that, right? So. So this one raised his hands and they got worried for those people. And the Prophet of Allah when he opened his mouth Salalah Harding suddenly said the words alone, Maddie Dawson, or like give guidance to the people of dose. And then he taught to famous and that you go back to your people.
But now you behave yourself.
Behave yourself. Just go there and drop the hammer Islam by right. It's Sunday, you go back and you invest in to your people, you care for your people, you work for your people, you win their trust, you win their love, their compassion.
you empathize with them. Empathy was one of the greatest qualities of the prophets a lot. So I'm going to get completely off track, but it's okay. It's 330 the problem? I was just mentioning that yesterday I was teaching the DA yesterday rubbish. Ronnie Emery was listening
to Dr. musante salon, where Musashi Salaam asked Allah Oh, expand my chest meaning take away my nervousness by anxiety meditation, make my job easier for me mean means I'm about to go talk to the most difficult man on earth fit. I'll make it a little bit easier, soften him up a little bit. And then he said, untied the
Not from my tongue. Untie a knot from my tongue. And in the context of that ayah we've been told by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam used to stutter. Was it Sammy sister. We have in tradition in narrations in diversity, you'll find it Mousavi, semi systemic. I found a very beautiful happy Subhana Allah. It teaches us how the prophets of medicine would deal with people and teaches us a lot on how we need to learn to deal with people.
the grandson of the prophets, Allah, Hussain,
the grandson of the prophet SAW some Hussein the Son of God, a loved one who used to stutter when you talked.
who say I'm not the alarm I know used to stutter when you spoke, you had a stuttering
and he was a young boy. So I mean, you know, imagine how frustrating that is for a young boy to stutter. Right? And other kids don't make it easy, good. No, when he tries to say something like, I write the market, right? So the market, one of our buddies is laughing, right? So we will we mark that person, we make fun of them. Right? So it's not easy. And then on top of that, you know what makes it even that much more frustrating? expectations. Who's Hussein's older brother? Anybody know? Hasn't hasn't much Hussein's older brother hasn't not the last one was a very eloquent person. Very well spoken young men very articulate, like a pope like a future Habiba future public speaker.
That's all in the prophets a lot from sorry, one time us human hooked but he picked them up and he said hi in Liberty has a second one. This son of mine is a leader. The prophets a lot. He said that because it's very articulate, well spoken young men like a young dynamic.
And imagine being his younger brother, and then stuttering when you talk. Imagine how frustrating that must have been. How demoralizing that would be. So the Hadith says that when the prophets Allah, He said he would sit around playing with the grandkids a lot. So when he was sitting around, and whenever I'm saying we're trying to speak, and the Prophet sallallahu was there and he would start stuttering a lot while he spoke, the profits of noticing with smile.
You just smile.
That's soothing and calming. It is somebody just nice this big old flash into a nice big old smile. And this isn't just anyone This is received Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, it's like the full moon. His face was bright, and illuminating and comforting, like sitting out looking at the full moon. And you would just smile. Just nice, big smile. Yep, hug. And your heart describes the smile of the processor when you would actually open his mouth like you can see his teeth. Just big old smile.
Just smile to let him know that he loved it. He approved of it. He was proud of him. He just smiled. I'd be like this what you're trying to say, Come on, come on. Come on. Remember, come on, get out. Get out. Come on when you do it, not just coaching him all the time.
I just beating down on him all the time. Just smiling.
Just smile. And then what would he say?
The profits a lot. He said What did pat him on the back? And the people that are around there? Because it's kind of an embarrassing moment, right? When you're trying to just spit it out. You're trying to say you keep stumbling over yourself. And there's like eight people sitting there you're having a like a dinner party having a conversation. Everyone's just kind of waiting for you to eventually get there. Right? So it can be a little embarrassing. So the processing would just smile with them pat them on the back. And then he would say he has inherited this.
The stuttering he has inherited this from his great great great uncle musala.
He turned his negative into a positive he turned his shortcoming into a source of pride for him. He says its inheritance inheritance itself is something good and not just from anyone but from Mousavi. Mousavi sounds an amazing person. Great is one of the greatest prophets. Forget about greatness men, one of the greatest prophets.
He would say he has inherited this from his great great uncle Mousavi Salah. What now, say something now? Right.
That's, that's who the prophets a lot. He said. You would empathize with people,
empathize with people who feel their pain.
So I was talking about that story. So this man came from that city except that Assad went back, came back right away. So they're not accepting assignment. Dharma destroys these people, promises or some set up, gave yourself and he said, Oh, like you're guided to these people. And then he sent him back and he said, Now you go behave yourself. You go do what you see me doing here with people, empathize with them, be one of them, mix it up with them, be there for them. And then you have a message to share with the Sahaba or the alumni who say say that we saw to fail after 20 years.
in the, in the in the year immediately before the passing of the prophets of Allah hottie in Medina, which is almost 20 excuse me, which is almost 20 years after that moment. You ever seen somebody after 20 years? It's like, it's like seeing somebody from another lifetime.
Where you've been? Right? Like you're taking a back from it like, wow, is that really you? They said we saw him after 20 years and he was walking into the city of Medina and the early Sahaba were like always to fade. Were you being homey? Right? They were, like shocked to see and where you
thought you died, right? And he said that now I'm here I came to Medina. And then they said that we saw a bunch of people walking behind. You said, What's going on? He said, This is my entire tribe of a dose, and they have all come to become Muslim and accept Islam.
That's the type of person profits or money somebody would invest time into people and he taught others to invest time, one time there was a battle going on, and the Muslims were like getting killed in the battle. They came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and they said, O Messenger of Allah, may God Allah destroys these people were dying here. Although mahali Allah just it was a battle of who name they said about the people of Steve
Aoki, their expert archers are killing us. Although lohardagan may drama destroys these people. The profits of Madison raised his hands and made the drama love McAfee fun, or like give guidance to the people. And then he turned to his campaign and he said, I've had enough of this. He said any level over Atlanta and I was not sent to curse people, to dam people to do people. Were in the library through Ramadan, I was sent as a mercy for people.
Learn to be a mercy for people, for the people and that begins with the people nearest and dearest to you, the closest to you in your own home, in your families. And I'm not going to launch into the whole terrain, the whole detail talk. All right, but very briefly, learn to be a mercy for the people in your life. Practice forgiveness and mercy with the people that are closest to you. We take for granted the people that are closest to us.
We we bury our closest people, whether it be your wife, or whether it be your husband, whether it be your sons and daughters,
brothers and sisters, we bury them we suffocate them under the expectations we have of them. We hold them hostage
based on what we expect from them. We suffocate them we strangle them.
And that's what breaks down these relationships. Learn to practice mercy and forgiveness the soft armor of your loved one was shocked his daughter have sought that's why it's called double house is done our house was the one of the wives of the profits a little while ago
when he found out
that when you're actually what the way the full story goes, because it's kind of an interesting story. He was having like somebody he told his wife something or other until describe something at home. His wife was like, ah, I need to do that. That's not right. But whenever she disagreed with him, she's like, I'm not doing that. And he was like, What? Woman
right? And she goes, relax, calm down. She goes, What do you think you are? The profits allottee some allows his wife's to talk openly to them and disagree with him. He was like,
so he goes to his daughter's house. He goes to house and he's like, what are you doing? You talk back to the messenger. It's like no, I communicate with him. And he wants us to he allows us to
communication talking. You know what a small simple sooner that you can implement immediately from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when you would go home when he would enter into his home. He would say Salaam to all the family members of the home. All house It takes a lot to everybody in the home in the house.
Women you crazy, right? You see salon called the family members of the House. I was talking about this earlier today. The profits a lot. He said I'm taught us etiquettes of saying set up. He said whoever enters into the room should say set out to the people sitting in the room. The younger people should start the salon and she takes around first two people older than them.
But at the same time, the Sahaba say even though he taught us these protocols, he's dedicated who should say salon first. We could never beat the prophets a lot of them to the punch. We can never beat him to the punch. He was always the first one to say some of the kids were walking with Islamic Oh, how's it going? Kids? What's wrong? always the first one to say sometimes we walk into the room before we can say as loudly go How's it going? Everything's okay. It was always the first one to say something.
Any kid character, morals, ethics, empathy, mercy, forgiveness. This is the lesson and I want to tie it back to the IRA because the last thing that we want to have when we show up on the Day of Judgment, when we show up on the Day of Judgment,
what we want what we hope that we pray what we make logical love that we have waiting for us is a long line of people. A huge crowd of people that say Oh Allah, I accepted Islam I can closer to you. I developed a relationship with the masjid. I started praying five times a day because
As a discount, because this guy was amazing. Because he said an amazing example he did something that touched my heart.
And the thing that we don't want to look forward to the thing that we don't want to have is that we show up on the Day of Judgment. And there's a huge crowd of people. There's a long line of people, there's a long list of individuals, and they say, Oh Allah, I knew your religion was the truth. I swear I knew it was the truth. I heard the Quran in a second I heard it, I knew this was correct.
But this guy right here.
He was such a miserable human being.
He was such a bad person.
And he said he was a Muslim. He was the one telling you about Islam. He was the one handing me the Quran that I thought that there's no way that this could be the truth. Otherwise, this guy wouldn't be such a horrible human being.
We don't want that to happen.
And so going forward from here, it's the end of the night. We're nearing the end of the month of Ramadan, but we have enough of an opportunity to make an awesome there is a Nia there's an order that there's an awesome a Nia is when you just decide something in your heart and it always when you state it with your tongue. And then Azzam
is when you actually take practical practical steps to implement it, to live it to make it a reality. When you just thought to yourself, ha, piano sounds kind of interesting. You just think to yourself, you see the arm on Facebook, you're like,
I think about it. But then when you actually call your friends like,
Where the heck is Mansfield?
Where's Mansfield? Right? What is Mansfield? So it's like, when you actually talk to someone about it, like are you going to be going in I am, I'm thinking about going to the gym, it became an add on.
But the second that you went on Google Maps and you pulled up the directions and you got to directions, or you programmed your GPS, or when you got out of your house to leave for the pyramid became an awesome it became a reality at that moment.
So make this an awesome right here, I will become a better person.
And I mean that at the most basic tangible level, I would learn learn to talk to people better, I will act better, I will behave better.
at the most basic level, I will become a better person.
May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that was said heard.
I just had a small quick appeal. I know it's tragic. Everything in Ramadan is fundraising. I know you're tired of hearing of it. I'm not going to do fundraising. It's just a request. inshallah.
We are, you know, this is a small community. It's a small facility, we're still growing. We still have the growing pains where you struggle to pay rent and things like that. But we're in shadow working through those things. If you'd like to contribute, at the same time, we are doing these events and we're trying to make this a place of value that presents good activities and quality activities and education to the community. It's going to tell if you'd like to donate something you'd like to contribute something just for your appreciation of what you've benefited, what you learn from tonight's inshallah what you gain from tonight, just feel free to tell us stop by and
drop something in the donations. The people that are watching online as well there's just a little chip in under the broadcast window inshallah, you can also just drop a little something, whatever it is, the Quran, you know, gives us the example of a single seed. Never underestimate what you can contribute because of Quran in the Quran. Allah says you give a single seed, it multiplies by 700.
A single seed becomes barrels and barrels.
So never underestimate what you have to give and Shall I make whatever contribution you can you do it for your own aka, you do it for your own good, you're investing into your own DNA shala at the same time, wanted to request everyone to make dua for the community for the masjid may go out for the volunteers. You can see there's you know, a lot of time a lot of effort goes into making it possible coordinating with all the speakers making all this especially the people watching online, there's 18,000 wires running around here. And it takes a lot of work, a lot of dedication to make it all happen. So make sure that you make dua for the volunteers who made this all possible and put in
the time and the effort so we could just come and we could just benefit inshallah. Also, I didn't, I didn't get my salary because you requested I didn't want to break his heart. The young man here asked me to make dua, he said that his older brothers going to college tomorrow, and he's moving away from home to college. And so, he said to make the offers rather than Chela who can save up okay, and this is his brother. So May Allah subhanaw taala keep them safe and keep them close to you guys. inshallah does not come along. Hayden, we are going to end the nights as it should be ended. And I want to make that last point because when I was making that announcement, I don't think the
broadcast was running. And I'm gonna we have a couple of 100 people here but I think we had last count we had over 1000 people online. So I want to state this for their benefit.
And it's a wrap it's a reminder for all of us. You know, we came here tonight, we sat here we listened we prayed we did amazing things 100 of them, but how do we make the distinction how do we make the difference between we I did it because of Wissam Sharif I did it because of brother no mana de Haan and I did it because of you know brother hates poetry.
I just came to listen to these awesome speakers between I did it for a month. I did it because of a lot I did it for a lot I did it to please a lot. The thing that will prove that more than saying it the thing that will establish that will prove that to yourself is tomorrow night when there's not a superduper pm to attend not online, not in person, you're still going to take yours sulla you're still going to face up giving up and you're still going to pray. And it may be two rakaats maybe it'll be four accounts, maybe it'll be 510 15 minutes. That's it. And you're going to read Quran and read a little bit of translation for 10 minutes. That's it. But the fact that you do that proves
that you did it for Allah, because that's the goal at the end of the day, nothing else matters. It's all about Allah subhanaw taala becoming closer to Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything will separate her
