How you come to someone

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

when he know that he has he has this power or that benefit this benefit? If I tell you that, you know, the foodbuy he's not an Indian. He's not an Arab. You know, he's not a gene. He's not an angel. He's not an island. He's not an horse. To tell me what, what are you going to do? Are you going to use it for any purpose? You know, it's just I keep saying that food is not an end is not of course. He's not a flower he's not a rose. He's not a sky he's not heaven. What purple in there really? Tell you what he is to iClicker if I say he's an accountant, then Okay, we'll go for him for this purpose. If you keep seeing a lead now this alert now this alert now does tell me what the

00:00:40--> 00:01:14

purpose of adjusting then how good to ask him anything. You know, it is enough to say that nothing like to him that's just that's what you need to do to basically don't compare it to anything. The best things you have to sell nice or comically shy. Then after that, you need to know what he does to say his creator okay to then at least I have a problems and no solution. He can create a solution for me as a creator. He's forgiven Oh, that's good to know. To him when I do see I can ask Him to forgive. He has power to have no power I can ask him to to do something for me. He doesn't he knows everything. So I should be careful he counted here 70 I should be careful. You need to know what he

00:01:14--> 00:01:51

does. If you just know that what he does not do to what what will happen that basically there's no reason for you to come near to him the one of the problem is that people who talk what a lot of philosophers and political limine they're more keen to set you what he's not that they're working because the partner actually and even a botanist cannot prove a lie.

00:02:28--> 00:03:01

favor to upon other people. So bahala refers to though that reviews which he makes that is superior to everything he had no different no four that's what he says 100 that move on. You don't need to say he's not this is not this. How much better because he knows that he's not a bucket is not hot is not you know farther away Natasha.
