One of our contemporaries, he has an amazing story. I heard him say this, he said there was a particular man who was overseeing the construction of a masjid. And it was entirely his project. He wanted this to be his baby, his good deed that he will present Allah with on the day of judgment. He was a wealthy man. He brought his own workforce. And he was very keen to not allow anybody to have a contribution in the masjid. He wants us to be His good deed. As they were building the Masjid. A woman and old woman he said came past and she had made like a small bucket, she realized that there was some construction here she heard the masjid was going up, what can she do an old lady.
