And this shows you the beauty of this ummah, that even at the time of weakness, they're asleep. But at hamdulillah they're not dead. And we see this time and time again, where the Muslims when our brothers and sisters are in need, that they stand up to support them. And a couple of days after this event, a local TV channel we saw TV and I did a TV show with them when I was in Jakarta in 2017 was on May Allah bless the brothers there.
