00:01:16--> 00:01:19

All praises due to Allah, Lord of the worlds.

00:01:20--> 00:01:25

And surely the best reward is for those who have Taqwa.

00:01:26--> 00:01:31

And surely there is no animosity, except for the oppressor.

00:01:33--> 00:02:07

And I be a witness that Allah is one and has no partners. And that Mohammed the son of Abdullah, is a servant and his last messenger. And may Allah always and constantly send peace and blessings, to Mohammed, to his family, to his companions to all those who call to his way and establish his Sunday, the day of judgment as to what follows I begin by cautioning myself and you to have Taqwa I'll have for Raja, that we should fear

00:02:09--> 00:02:17

Allah azza wa jal, Creator of the heavens and the earth, but at the same time, we should have hope in the mercy of Almighty God Allah.

00:02:18--> 00:02:21

And this consciousness of the Creator

00:02:22--> 00:02:38

should be with us not only in the masjid, but outside, not only on special occasions, but in everything that we do. We should recognize that there is one who is divine and knowledge,

00:02:39--> 00:02:47

who is closer to us than our juggler waits, who knows what we do in the secret, and in the open.

00:02:48--> 00:02:58

And so I caution myself, that we should nurture and develop this consciousness, and we should hear the words of Allah azza wa jal and obey.

00:03:01--> 00:03:21

Last minute, Allah has revealed to us in His glorious book, oh, you who believe, have the consciousness of Allah and speak a straightforward word, he would repair your deeds, and forgive you of your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, has surely gained a mighty tribe.

00:03:22--> 00:03:28

And so in the spirit of Colin sadita, I speak to you today.

00:03:29--> 00:03:32

Because at this point in the 21st century,

00:03:33--> 00:03:45

we as a human race, are reaching a very critical point, we could say it's a crossroads, in one direction is imminent destruction

00:03:47--> 00:04:00

or destruction coming not only from the environment itself, which is turning against us, because of misuse of the technology, because of pollution,

00:04:01--> 00:04:34

because of lack of regard for the creation, not only from the environment, but also from the economic system. The economic system is imploding on us in so the very dollars and cents, the very paper notes that we printed as promissory notes, to make a promise to somebody that there would be an equal amount of gold and silver in the bank. The papers are now becoming useless.

00:04:35--> 00:04:54

In some parts of the world, your money can be valuable on one day and within two months, it can be worthless. And so the system itself, which is not based on the actual amount of gold and silver in the bank,

00:04:55--> 00:04:58

it is exploding from the inside

00:04:59--> 00:04:59

and this is

00:05:00--> 00:05:05

will have profound impact upon all of the peoples of the earth.

00:05:06--> 00:05:22

The social system as well, the relationship of human beings is at a very critical point, there are those nations and individuals who would want to separate people based on their color.

00:05:23--> 00:05:38

They would feel that if a person is not the same color, or does not speak the same language, or does not come from the same tribe, or ethnicity, then that person is an enemy. He's a foreigner.

00:05:39--> 00:05:48

And so the social system now the family structures are shaping and in many parts of the world, people don't even get married anymore.

00:05:50--> 00:05:59

And so the very basis of society, the family, the relationship of people, is at a critical point.

00:06:01--> 00:06:25

Also, in this time, with catastrophic events coming about, there is a rise of magic. There is a rise of supernatural groupings, where people are seeking knowledge from spirit gods and from different types of forces in their frustration with the material world.

00:06:26--> 00:06:37

And so in this critical point, the Muslim Ummah, the nation of the last prophet, Mohammed ibn Abdullah Alayhi, salatu salam

00:06:39--> 00:06:45

is in a very strategic position to impact on the world.

00:06:46--> 00:06:49

Because whether we realize it or not,

00:06:51--> 00:07:08

when a person declares the Shahada, and becomes a Muslim, they are standing for the belief in one God. That is the belief of Abraham, of Moses, of Jesus, of all of those righteous ones who came from the beginning of time.

00:07:09--> 00:07:18

And by the very opening chapter of the Quran, the Muslims have a declaration of independence.

00:07:19--> 00:07:46

It is a declaration of independence from material things from spirit Gods from superstition. And when we say iaca Naboo, we are going to Stein, you are alone, when we worship, and from you alone, we seek assistance. This is a declaration of independence, where the whether we realize it or not,

00:07:47--> 00:08:18

we represent a solution to the international crisis. In the economic level, interest free banking, a system where people do not exploit each other based on wealth, but where they cooperate with wealth. And if one has more wealth than the other, he takes a section of his wealth that we know as as a cat, and he gives it freely to the poor.

00:08:19--> 00:08:36

If he has wealth, he will cooperate with another individual to empower that other individual. And so this cooperative interest free system is the solution to the international problem. whether we realize it or not.

00:08:37--> 00:08:38

We stand

00:08:39--> 00:09:15

as the aroma of the last prophet Mohammed, so seldom, who did not come to the Arabs, he came to all of humanity. And from the beginning of his message, there were light skin and dark skin with him. The Arab and the non Arab people from Persia, people from Africa, people with a from the northern European paths, all types were with him in this beautiful rainbow coalition, which stood for the belief in one God, and the respect for the family,

00:09:16--> 00:09:21

that women should not be abused, that the rich should not take from the poor.

00:09:24--> 00:09:57

That the creator alone should be given ultimate respect and reverence. And so we hold this information in our minds and in our hearts. We have gems of wisdom. In the book, the final last testament Alcott and we have gems of wisdom, coming from our beloved Prophet Mohammed Salah Silva, who did not speak from himself, who spoke from above seven habits, but we also are at the crossroads

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

and nation's makeup

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Over 26% of the earth's population,

00:10:04--> 00:10:06

we live in strategic

00:10:07--> 00:10:23

water passes strategic mountain weight, strategic regions, over 50% of the mineral wealth of this world lies underneath our country's. We have some of the richest people on the face of the planet Earth.

00:10:24--> 00:10:40

We have intellectuals, we are a young nation. And in recent study was done. It found that in most Muslim countries, the majority of Muslims, over 60% of Muslims are 25 years and under.

00:10:41--> 00:10:42

This is the majority.

00:10:44--> 00:10:49

And so we are a young nation. And a young nation is a nation of the future.

00:10:52--> 00:10:57

We have great standing armies who are waiting for their generals.

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

We have nation states.

00:11:02--> 00:11:13

We have a long history, a great civilization. But we are at the crossroads because there is a contradiction with the great wealth, there is poverty.

00:11:15--> 00:11:20

There are some countries where the people have so much food, they don't know what to do with it.

00:11:21--> 00:11:27

And if you go a few miles in the air or over the borders, there are other Muslims who are starving to death.

00:11:29--> 00:11:58

With intellectuals in many cases, the scholars will argue over trivia. They will argue over minor issues when the Uzu when the foundations are the same. And the problems are seldom was reported to have said Matt de la Mancha, powder houda illa Ooh, to juggle, that people would not go astray after guidance, until they were given the ability to argue

00:12:00--> 00:12:02

with the great army standing,

00:12:03--> 00:12:09

we are still feeling a type of frustration and humiliation on the ground.

00:12:10--> 00:12:11

Master

00:12:12--> 00:12:24

is crying out Jerusalem, under the Muslim rule was an open land for all religions. Christian people worship in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

Jewish people worship in their synagogues, without interference.

00:12:32--> 00:12:38

And so this blesses land is crying out for that rule,

00:12:40--> 00:12:43

which allows people of all nationalities to come

00:12:44--> 00:12:51

with a worship of God, the worship of the Creator is put above nationalism and manmade ideologies.

00:12:53--> 00:13:31

And so the contradiction is there. The wealth, poverty, great armies, they do not come to assist to press. intellectuals are not making the discoveries that are needed in the world today. And so we cry for change, and we feel a type of frustration in ourselves. We cry for a political system. We cry for Islamic economic system. Some of them cry out for the Khalifa. They want the Khalifa to come. But a lot told us in the La Habra UV Roma be comin.

00:13:33--> 00:13:40

Roma be unforeseen. Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change that which is in themselves.

00:13:41--> 00:13:45

The internal Muslim. This is the primary issue

00:13:46--> 00:14:06

that we need to look at today. Everything else is in place. Everything is in place. Like a beautiful vehicle that is there waiting to go it's on the beginning of the race, but it has no gas inside of it. The energy inside

00:14:08--> 00:14:28

the heart, the process of them said there is a lump of flesh in the body. If it is sound, the whole body is sound. And if it is corrupt without festa festival just a docu. If it is corrupted, the whole body is corrupted, and that is the heart. And so the intentions,

00:14:29--> 00:14:32

the relationship of people to each other.

00:14:33--> 00:15:00

There is too much pride. Some are proud of their color. Some are proud of their nationality. Some are proud of their language. Some are proud even of their passport. But what do we have to be proud about? We come from a humble place and we will return to a humble place. And no matter how rich you are, how beautiful you are, when you go down into the earth, nobody is going

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

down there with you.

00:15:02--> 00:15:04

So why are we proud?

00:15:05--> 00:15:21

There are even those who claim to be of the family of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salah, and we respect them we constantly ask Allah to send blessings and salutations on the family of the Prophet Sal Salah. But blood is not enough

00:15:22--> 00:15:27

because Abu lahab the uncle of the province of Salaam was Hashimi

00:15:28--> 00:15:37

he was the noble blood of the prophets also, and he is burning in hellfire. So blood is not enough.

00:15:39--> 00:15:45

It is the character. It is what within us hussite jealousy,

00:15:46--> 00:16:05

jealous of little progress that another Muslim makes they have a new baby, and the jealous of the baby. A new Masjid comes up and people are jealous of the master wealth. The people get wealth and we are jealous. There is nothing to be jealous of because material things come and they go.

00:16:06--> 00:16:30

And having an over abundance of wealth is not necessarily a blessing. Why would the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him say I want to live with the poor? I want to die with the poor. And I want to be raised on the Day of Resurrection with the folk rock with the poor. Why would he say this?

00:16:31--> 00:16:37

And so we have nothing to be jealous about. In the material sense

00:16:38--> 00:16:43

catarratto ohada anger becoming too angry, too emotional.

00:16:44--> 00:16:51

Now is the time where we need to have cool minds when we need to think straight

00:16:52--> 00:17:11

because the pressure is on us. But it was throughout Islamic history. It was during the time of the pressure during the time of difficulty when the leadership came to the surface when the good qualities of the Muslims came to the surface.

00:17:13--> 00:17:29

And we were able to revive Islam within our ranks. So I question myself and you number one that we need to have an increase in taqwa. We need to our culture our relationship with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:17:31--> 00:17:35

We need to be thankful for what we have. Be thankful.

00:17:37--> 00:17:39

This master is a great blessing to you.

00:17:40--> 00:17:44

I prayed in mustards in Mali and Timbuktu

00:17:45--> 00:17:53

in Malawi, in Zimbabwe, that has no rug on the ground, the masjid is made of dirt.

00:17:54--> 00:17:58

And there is an animal's skin, or a piece of thatch, this is your rock.

00:18:00--> 00:18:06

But you will see people with a thirst for knowledge, changing their lives.

00:18:07--> 00:18:18

So that when we do have the blessing of comfort, we need to thank Allah subhanaw taala over and over again, who has given us comfort, given us wealth, and given us how

00:18:20--> 00:18:50

we also need to begin to focus on understanding our religion, from authentic sources, that we learn to speak classical Arabic, that we go to the school, the foundations of our religion. And we take from the foundation and not necessarily from the cultures that we come from, because my culture is not the same as your culture. But the foundations of the religion are the same.

00:18:51--> 00:18:59

Thirdly, that this knowledge that we gain needs to be relevant to the society we are living in today.

00:19:00--> 00:19:06

What is the Islamic position on Substance Abuse on drugs?

00:19:07--> 00:19:10

What is the Islamic position on homelessness?

00:19:12--> 00:19:16

What can we provide to the society against racism?

00:19:18--> 00:19:34

To show that we sit together white, black, brown, yellow, we sit together we pray together as brothers and sisters. What can we show to the world now at this critical point when racism and xenophobia is rising in the world,

00:19:35--> 00:19:53

and so we hold this in our hearts, to share it to the society. We need to unify, to start to look at other people, especially those of understandable Jama. We need to look at each other's look at each other as people of the Qibla

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

not amalaki or Shafi or Hanafi, or this movement or that move

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

With in many cases 95% of a Muslim will be the same and 5% is different.

00:20:08--> 00:20:53

But we but if we focus on the 5%, then that will lead to a negative relationship when 95% is the same. And so we need to focus on the positivity that is between us, that which unifies us, and not that which separates us a positive outlook, the prophets of Solomon, would you send this companions out, he will tell them, Bushido will lead to not Pharaoh, yes, zero, will lead to a zero. He would tell them give glad tidings, don't drive people away, make it easy, don't make it difficult. And so we lie at a very strategic point. In this time.

00:20:55--> 00:21:13

We have within us solutions to major international crises, major international crisis and the world that we know today. And a lot knows best. within the next few years, this world is about to change.

00:21:15--> 00:21:54

There are catastrophic, catastrophic events, we are standing at the door of catastrophic events. And those floods, those earthquakes, the tsunami, all of the natural crisis, whenever the people report about it in the last five years, they say it was the largest flood in living memory. And this is not just in the Muslim world, or the Third World recently in Poland, when they have the flood, the Polish people said, this is the largest flood, in living memory.

00:21:56--> 00:22:41

In the history of our nation, we have never been flooded like this. And so with the world in a great change, it is now that we need to understand our religion, to have hikma wisdom, have the balance to give this religion to the people and to see that one of the key parts of this message is not to keep it to ourselves, but it is to share it with the rest of society. Share with people that we are not enemies of the great prophets. But the Prophet Mohammed sells on them was the fulfillment of the message of Abraham, Moses, Jesus and all of those righteous ones, Allah hemosol now is our time.

00:22:42--> 00:23:16

Now is the time to shine. Allah subhanaw taala has given it to us May Allah make it easy for us to purify our hearts in these difficult times? May Allah unite the ranks of the believers so that we are one SFX standing for tawheed and May Allah forgive us and have mercy on us for that mistakes that we have made for we know not what we do.

00:25:22--> 00:25:31

Dependence from material things from spirit Gods from superstition. And when we say Yakubu, what

00:25:32--> 00:25:47

you are alone will we worship and from you alone, we seek assistance. This is a declaration of independence, whether we realize it or not,

00:25:48--> 00:26:19

we represent a solution to the international crisis. In the economic level, interest free banking, a system where people do not exploit each other based on wealth, but where they cooperate with wealth. And if one has more wealth than the other, he takes a section of his wealth that we know as as a cat, and he gives it freely to the poor.

00:26:20--> 00:26:37

If he has wealth, he will cooperate with another individual to empower that other individual. And so this cooperative interest free system is the solution to the international problem. whether we realize it or not.

00:26:38--> 00:26:39

We stand

00:26:40--> 00:27:16

as the oma of the last prophet Mohammed Salah, seldom who did not come to the Arabs, he came to all of humanity. And from the beginning of his message, there were light skin and dark skin with him, the Arab and the non Arab people from Persia, people from Africa, people with a from the northern European pass all types, we're with him in this beautiful rainbow coalition, which stood for the belief in one God, and the respect for the family,

00:27:17--> 00:27:22

that women should not be abused, that the rich should not take from the poor.

00:27:25--> 00:27:58

That the creator alone should be given ultimate respect and reverence. And so we hold this information in our minds and in our hearts. We have gems of wisdom. In the book, the final last testament, el corte and we have gems of wisdom, coming from our beloved Prophet Mohammed Salah, who did not speak from himself, who spoke from above seven habits, but we also are at the crossroads.

00:27:59--> 00:28:04

And nations makeup over 26% of the earth's population.

00:28:05--> 00:28:07

We live in strategic

00:28:08--> 00:28:24

water passes strategic mountain weight, strategic regions, over 50% of the mineral wealth of this world lies underneath our countries. We have some of the richest people on the face of the planet, right.

00:28:25--> 00:28:41

We have intellectuals, we are a young nation. And in recent study was done. It found that in most Muslim countries, the majority of Muslims, over 60% of Muslims are 25 years and under.

00:28:42--> 00:28:43

This is the majority.

00:28:45--> 00:28:50

And so we are a young nation. And a young nation is a nation of the future.

00:28:53--> 00:28:58

We have great standing armies who are waiting for their generals.

00:28:59--> 00:29:01

We have nation states.

00:29:03--> 00:29:14

We have a long history, a great civilization. But we are at the crossroads because there is a contradiction with the great wealth. There is poverty.

00:29:16--> 00:29:28

There are some countries where the people have so much food, they don't know what to do with it. And if you go a few miles in the air or over the borders, there are other Muslims who are starving to death

00:29:30--> 00:29:59

with intellectuals in many cases the scholars will argue over trivia. They will argue over fudo minor issues when the Uzu when the foundations are the same. And the professor seldom was reported to have said magdala Coleman cut powder houda illa. to juggle, that people would not go astray after guidance until they were given the ability to argue

00:30:01--> 00:30:03

With the great armies standing,

00:30:04--> 00:30:10

we are still feeling a type of frustration and humiliation on the ground.

00:30:11--> 00:30:12

Master

00:30:13--> 00:30:26

is crying out Jerusalem, under the Muslim rule was an open land for all religions. Christian people worship in the Church of the Nativity in Beit LA.

00:30:27--> 00:30:32

Jewish people worship in the center bottoms without interference.

00:30:33--> 00:30:39

And so this blesses land is crying out for that rule,

00:30:41--> 00:30:44

which allows people of all nationalities to come

00:30:45--> 00:30:52

with the worship of God, the worship of the Creator is put above nationalism and manmade ideologies.

00:30:54--> 00:31:32

And so, the contradiction is there. The wealth, poverty, great armies, they do not come to assist to press. intellectuals are not making the discoveries that are needed in the world today. And so we cry for change and we feel a type of frustration in ourselves. We cry for our political system. We cry for Islamic economic system. Some of them cry out for the halifa they want the Khalifa to come. But a lot told us in the law, Hatha Yoga you Roma be comin

Roma be unforeseen, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change that which is in themselves.

00:31:42--> 00:32:07

The internal Muslim, this is the primary issue that we need to look at today. Everything else is in place. Everything is in place. Like a beautiful vehicle that is there waiting to to to to go it's on at the beginning of the race, but it has no gas inside of it. The energy inside

00:32:09--> 00:32:29

the heart, the purpose of seldom said there is a lump of flesh in the body. If it is sound, the whole body is sound. And if it is corrupt without festa festival, just a Dooku if it is corrupted, the whole body is corrupted, and that is the heart and soul the intentions,

00:32:30--> 00:32:33

the relationship of people to each other.

00:32:34--> 00:33:02

There is too much pride. Some are proud of their color. Some are proud of their nationality. Some are proud of the language, some are proud even of their passport. But what do we have to be proud about? We come from a humble place and we will return to a humble place. And no matter how rich you are, how beautiful you are, when you go down into the earth, nobody is going down there with you.

00:33:03--> 00:33:05

So why are we proud?

00:33:06--> 00:33:22

There are even those who claim to be of the family of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salah, and we respect them we constantly ask Allah to send blessings and salutations on the family of the prophet SAW Salah. But blood is not enough.

00:33:23--> 00:33:28

Because Abu lahab the uncle of the prophets of Salaam was Hashimi

00:33:29--> 00:33:38

he was at the noble blood of the Prophet Sol Sol and he is burning in hellfire. So blood is not enough.

00:33:40--> 00:33:46

It is the character. It is what within us has sad jealousy.

00:33:47--> 00:34:06

Jealous of little progress that another Muslim makes they have a new baby and the jealous of the baby. A new Masjid comes up and people are jealous of the masjid wealth. The people get wealth and we are jealous. There's nothing to be jealous of because material things come and they go.

00:34:07--> 00:34:31

And having an over abundance of wealth is not necessarily a blessing. Why would the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him say I want to live with the poor? I want to die with the poor. And I want to be raised on the Day of Resurrection with the folk rock with the poor. Why would he say this?

00:34:32--> 00:34:38

And so we have nothing to be jealous about. In the material sense.

00:34:39--> 00:34:44

catarratto ohada anger becoming too angry, too emotional.

00:34:45--> 00:34:52

Now is the time where we need to have cool minds when we need to think straight

00:34:53--> 00:35:00

because the pressure is on us. But it was throughout Islamic history. It was during the time

00:35:00--> 00:35:12

of the pressure during the time of difficulty when the leadership came to the surface when the good qualities of the Muslims came to the surface

00:35:14--> 00:35:30

and we were able to revive Islam within our ranks. So I caution myself and you, number one, that we need to have an increase in taqwa. We need to our culture our relationship with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:35:32--> 00:35:36

We need to be thankful for what we have. Be thankful.

00:35:38--> 00:35:40

This master is a great blessing to you.

00:35:41--> 00:35:45

I prayed in mustards in in Mali and Timbuktu.

00:35:46--> 00:35:54

in Malawi, in Zimbabwe, that has no rug on the ground, the masjid is made of dirt.

00:35:55--> 00:35:59

And there is an animal's skin, or a piece of tach, this is your rock.

00:36:01--> 00:36:07

But you will see people with a thirst for knowledge, changing their lives.

00:36:08--> 00:36:20

So that when we do have the blessing of comfort, we need to thank Allah subhanaw taala over and over again, who has given us comfort, given us wealth, and given us help.

00:36:21--> 00:36:51

We also need to begin to focus on understanding our religion, from authentic sources, that we learn to speak classical Arabic, that we go to the school, the foundations of our religion. And we take from the foundations and not necessarily from the cultures that we come from, because my culture is not the same as your culture. But the foundations of the religion are the same.

00:36:52--> 00:37:00

Thirdly, that this knowledge that we gain needs to be relevant to the society we are living in today.

00:37:01--> 00:37:07

What is the Islamic position on Substance Abuse on drugs?

00:37:08--> 00:37:11

What is the Islamic position on homelessness?

00:37:13--> 00:37:17

What can we provide to the society against racism?

00:37:19--> 00:37:35

To show that we sit together white, black, brown, yellow, we sit together, we pray together as brothers and sisters. What can we show to the world now at this critical point when racism and xenophobia is rising in the world,

00:37:36--> 00:37:54

and so we hold this in our hearts, to share it to the society, we need to unify, to start to look at other people, especially those of other sonowal JAMA, we need to look at each other's look at each other as people of the Qibla.

00:37:56--> 00:38:08

Not amalaki or Shafi or Hanafi, this movement or that movement, in many cases 95% of a Muslim will be the same and 5% is different.

00:38:09--> 00:38:19

But we but if we focus on the 5%, then that will lead to a negative relationship when 95% is the same.

00:38:20--> 00:38:54

And so we need to focus on the positivity that is between us, that which unifies us and not that which separates us a positive outlook. The prophets are so lovely. When you send this companions out, he will tell them by Shirou Allah to know Pharaoh, yes, zero will lead to a zero. He would tell them give glad tidings. Don't drive people away, make it easy, don't make it difficult. And so we lie at a very strategic point. In this time.

00:38:56--> 00:39:14

We have within us solutions to major international crises, major international crises and the world that we know today. And a lot knows best. within the next few years. This world is about to change.

00:39:15--> 00:39:17

There are catastrophic,

00:39:18--> 00:39:55

catastrophic events. We are standing at the door of catastrophic events. And those floods, those earthquakes, the tsunami, all of the natural crisis, whenever the people report about it in the last five years, they say it was the largest flood in living memory. And this is not just in the Muslim world or the Third World recently in Poland. When they had the flood. The Polish people said this is the largest flood in living memory

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

in the history of our nation.

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

We have never been flooded like this.

00:40:03--> 00:40:42

And so with the world in a great change, it is now that we need to understand our religion to have hikma wisdom, have the balance to give this religion to the people. And to see that one of the key parts of this message is not to keep it to ourselves, but it is to share it with the rest of society. Share with people that we are not enemies of the great prophets. But the Prophet Muhammad SAW them was the fulfillment of the message of Abraham, Moses, Jesus and all of those righteous ones are the hemosol. Now is our time.

00:40:43--> 00:41:17

Now is the time to shine. Allah subhanaw taala has given it to us May Allah make it easy for us may allow purify our hearts in these difficult times. May Allah unite the ranks of the believers so that we are one SFX standing for tawheed and May Allah forgive us and have mercy on us. But that mistakes that we have made for we know not what we do.
