Mr. Boerhaave go ahead and you want to welcome our guest Welcome Sir Mark. You know, I haven't really met him formally. I know. You met him. I met him in Ohio as well. We've just been benefiting from your work and benefiting from your spoken words. Masha Allah I especially wanted to tell you much more like his camera is sleek. You know, I told you man, we came out of this quarantine with something.

00:00:53--> 00:00:57

That's definitely good. That's that is a mug or brand camera, right?

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

Like, we're cameras now and

00:01:04--> 00:01:07

I use microphones and all sorts of things.

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

They call it wired up,

00:01:13--> 00:01:15

wired up miked up, I'm ready to go.

00:01:16--> 00:01:20

More lighting. That's the one that I've been trying to learn is lighting. Lighting.

00:01:21--> 00:01:22

Lighting is

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

pretty interesting. It just says to change my lighting, see if it gets better.

00:01:28--> 00:01:32

It's not that isn't that deep? Actually your camera looks better now. You're

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

a little insecure with the lighting.

00:01:36--> 00:01:50

Exactly. Sheriff man Mashallah. You know, I'm sure most joining us from Houston. He's a resident scholar in the River Oaks Islamic center, I believe just willing to assume he is also there. Is that correct? He is in Clearlake Islamic center. Okay, Masha, Allah is also in Houston.

00:01:51--> 00:01:56

You use should you can you your background? Is you from Sudan. Am I correct? Yes, sir. I'm from

00:01:58--> 00:02:06

Queens, New York. Oh, good amount of time in both places at home there. Ya know, when people are from Queens, New York, they have to make it vocal,

00:02:07--> 00:02:24

of course, has to be announced it has to be pronounced. My problem now is I've been in Houston for five years, six years now. And so now when I meet people outside of you know when I'm traveling, people say where are you from? Now I hesitate man. Because the kings come from Queens.

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

Oh, man.

00:02:28--> 00:02:47

Are you a Giants fan? Are you are you uh, I'm not a football fan at all. I'm gonna you're gonna by default Yanni. I feel bad for you. hamdulillah they let me down at the beginning of every season. Week one, but that's still better than being a Houston Rockets fan. Or

00:02:49--> 00:02:53

Raptors fan? Those are my two that I just love to Manrico because

00:02:55--> 00:02:58

Raptors, fantasy Raptors fans these guys every year they think they're gonna come out of the east and they're gonna win but then they used to get rocked by LeBron every year he would just show up no team just with his his do rag and a broomstick and that's it

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

00:04:01--> 00:04:06

it was years and years of Laylatul Qadr and stuff like that finally coming to fruition for that.

00:04:08--> 00:04:17

matter what does that tell you about Toronto when a guy can come win the championship and still say I'm still leaving? Like there's no way there's nothing you can do to keep me

00:04:21--> 00:04:23

I'm not gonna control like my profit city. So

00:04:24--> 00:04:32

I'm gonna say some good people in Toronto. No doubt no doubt. You know we pray that Allah subhanaw taala is not on the rafters

00:04:34--> 00:04:54

look at the look at the disrespect these guys quiet Leonard leaves and these guys named their best player spicy P That's the best name they could come up with. Spicy p siakam. Yes, Jaco man. If I was the Aquaman they named me spicy P I'd want to leave to anyway.

00:04:56--> 00:04:57

Bless you, Chef man.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

You're welcome.

00:05:00--> 00:05:32

to men but may Allah reward you and and allow us to benefit from you shift. Our topic that we have today is the prophet Salam as a teacher and before we dive into it I wanted to ask you about I believe his name is Shiva looting Rahim Allah passed away who left this world in a car crash and and I saw you post about it and I'm not sure if it's a teacher or indirect Teacher No I met the chef once for him hola to Allah she has no Dan is the man who devoted his life to the Quran is probably 38 years old when he passed away 39 years old, but I am Allah.

00:05:33--> 00:05:36

And He, Allah He

00:05:37--> 00:06:19

I traveled to Sudan a year or two ago and I had this project in my mind like something that I do this Quran in motion, which is like spoken word of seed of the Quran. And so I was able to connect with him and he was he was down in a mashallah he's like the reciter of Sudan at this point in time, and he's got millions of views on YouTube, and it's just Allah subhanaw taala he's got such a, a beautiful voice. And when you're talking about that level of, of, you know, Sudan is a small market, as far as the different countries go, it's not Egypt, it's not Saudi Arabia, you know, 30 million people, more of a of a,

00:06:21--> 00:06:34

it's not a country that has that type of media presence. And for him to be this global. MashAllah icon or this global phenomenon, rather, it was something really special.

00:06:36--> 00:06:52

And, you know, I met him and Hamdulillah we had a wonderful series of recordings that we did together, and he was so humble and so beautiful. He's a HELOC. We're just incredible, you know, there's the hamlet of Quran like, you get that feeling of people who are so dignified by the Quran.

00:06:54--> 00:07:37

And his story, to me is also the story of what's what's behind the scenes, and behind the scenes is that there's a particular channel called knockout studios that basically, it's a bunch of guys, young guys who had media skills, they had these high quality cameras, and they had these, you know, all of this, like high quality audio equipment. And whereas a lot of people are always looking to figure out a way to promote themselves, right, so they decided that they were going to serve the Quran. And these Shu who were amazing recitals in Khartoum, in the capital city of Sudan, who otherwise would not have been known at all.

00:07:38--> 00:08:20

These guys decided that they're gonna go and they're gonna do these amazing high quality recordings. And that's what their channel is going to be, it's going to, it's going to, it's going to, to showcase these amazing colonic are citation and Allah subhanaw taala, bless their effort. And from that channel, the world was introduced to these local reciters, that one city, Muslim on Mahat. And, to me, that's a lot of times, especially for our brothers, sisters who are listening in from the theater intensive and our young people in general. It's not always about how you can be in front of the camera. And of course, if you can figure out a way to have a massive impact without being on the

00:08:20--> 00:08:23

camera at all, that's closer to sincerity. And that's closer to

00:08:25--> 00:08:51

you know, it's further away from the the temptations of your ego because it's always there, especially for men, the desire for significance is something that's embedded in us. And so for for that group, I'm just so happy for that group of young men who still have their other channels to look at to use to grow. And since then, it's just you know, they've been hosting so many brilliant Corot from Somalia, she has the

00:08:52--> 00:09:12

Rashid Sophie, the great Imam of color art and others and I'm very lucky but to me, she has no lens story is part of, of their story as well. These individuals who put together a massive Dawa project through very little means, but with Inshallah, to Allah a lot of sincerity in the middle work. Yep. And they did the word

00:09:13--> 00:09:14

for sharing, you know?

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

I'm not sure if it's me, or if it's even an official Mark, I just get a slight echo.

00:09:22--> 00:09:23

Let me just

00:09:24--> 00:09:28

hope it's not mean, I think it's gone. It's gone. It's perfect.

00:09:29--> 00:10:00

I was you know, that the car accident of the shift from Sudan was so close to home because it was right after up the Rocky Mountains like my brother's car accident, kind of died, have mercy on him and grant him genuine grant you patients continued patients, it's waves, right? It's not it's not anything that goes away in and when everybody else leaves. Yeah, so that correction of the share from Sudan was just right after that, and there were a couple of students in the car with him or some other people in the car with him and and it certainly

00:10:00--> 00:10:18

They're on social media and I had a hard time watching it because I was just getting done with the funeral of my brother and everything was so fresh. And I was just, you know, I was happy that these people were serving the Quran, you know, and you just can imagine and have this, you can

00:10:19--> 00:10:56

imagine, you can imagine the Day of Judgment. And this vision that Allah subhanaw taala will say, to have the assignment, if you were to come up with the title of the dunya, Allah said, so the half of the Quran is to start reciting. And then he started to recite, and these in this dunya, there were, someone was catching that on YouTube and watch it on some social network. But now imagine Allah subhanaw taala, having them say, in front of their own mouth, the prophets also in front the prophets, word turkey, in every ayah they read the ascent, contact rateliff Allah will say, don't recite it a new tone, recite like the way you used to recite in the dunya. I like that style,

00:10:56--> 00:11:28

because that style brought you over here. So we don't want to change any game. Keep that form, what up to to come up Contura to defeat the way you should read the Quran the world I want you to recite it now, putting them into the mantra to kind of talk about it. And then your final stage will be your last verse which scholars have documented as for those. So knowing no, the shift that passed away, very painful. This year has been very difficult. A lot of pious people have left a lot of families have left today. On the phone. I've spoken to some family friend from

00:11:30--> 00:12:06

Chicago was father just died from COVID. And, and people every single day husband Allah when it murky, and you know, in the last one year Rajon for all those who have left and metallography the family started Janine, but like you said, you know, there's a story behind this. And there's a story behind how people get accepted. Everybody has a story of a startup. How did this program start? How did the institute's start? How did Amazon start? It started in a garage, you know, like, it's all like their story. There's a story of pirates, people where they started, and but they, they it doesn't end here. It just continues in the next world. And inshallah we ask Allah to continue our

00:12:06--> 00:12:08

story. In the next

00:12:09--> 00:12:48

going, Nah, man, I just I just feel like, you know, it fits into our topic today that how the Prophet Salam was the more island he was a teacher, and he taught us how to deal with every situation and difficulties. Were one of those situations that he taught us how to deal with trauma. I'm sure you know, you're also been living in COVID. And how have you been coping? And how have you been dealing with people's difficulties, and I hope you've been protected in your way, when it comes to, you know, I was I was thinking of reciting a poem at the end. But because it's, it's we weren't expecting to go into this topic so early. But one of the ways to deal with difficulty is to look at

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

the state of the province level minus

00:12:50--> 00:13:18

It's undoubtedly, if you met a if you met a parent, right? If you met a father who told you that he lost one of his children, you would say that this person has suffered. You know, they you know, they say you're not supposed to bury your children, right? That's what non Muslims say, but we say God that Allah Masha, Allah, Muhammad Ali Muhammad, but the pain is real. It's different, right? When you're burying your child. And then if that person told you, I bury two of my children

00:13:19--> 00:13:32

are very three of my children. I buried four of my children, what would you say about this man? And he buried his wife as well? What would you say about this man, and by the way, he was an orphan.

00:13:34--> 00:13:42

By the way, he never saw his father, by the way, he was raised by his uncle, but his uncle died too. By the way, his

00:13:43--> 00:14:20

uncle who was like his brother was murdered and was mutilated by the way his adopted son died in the same day that his cousin died. Like, you would say, This person must never smile this person was never this person must see no goodness in this world, but and yet we we this was also the loss of all my days and them and so whoever wants to give themselves condolences, then let them console themselves whoever wants to console themselves to console themselves by looking and seeing how Allah Subhana Allah data tested, the one who he loved the absolute most and that was messenger cellulitis and them so this is a short poem if you'll allow me Of course, I'm gonna turn my camera off because

00:14:20--> 00:14:59

I know you're gonna hit me are wet. It goes, you never saw your father's face, or felt the warmth of a mother's embrace your grandfather's heartburn with concern but death would come to him in turn, no one to look up to so you cast your vision towards the sky when all you do is speak the truth. It hurts when they say you lie, doesn't it? But you take it all in stride. The honest prophet who by His own people is belied with only two pillars of support an uncle and a perfect wife but in the same year, both of them would lose their life. God gave her the to his salaam told her of a house in paradise but an angel other than him came to your house to collect its price

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

You went to five with the message you needed to spread they laughed at you and had their full stone you until you bled. I heard you were deserted so they struck you with Vicious blows and rumors were spread about Aisha that cause pain only Allah knows. Your cousin Jaffa would return from a long absence. And I've seen Yeah, he would come but in the same day, he'd be martyred with Zaid, your adopted son and don't consume with pass away they end up and Rokia as well. You held Ibrahim in your arms with a heart that breaks in eyes that swell that's what take permission to take your soul but not the source of those you love. But you never expressed the stress for the tests that came from up

00:15:40--> 00:15:51

above the trials made you strong and to Allah's Perfect company you would yearn because it is to Allah that we belong and to Him is our return

00:15:52--> 00:15:53

Salah Latinas.

00:15:59--> 00:16:03

Those, those fire those firemen Yeah,

00:16:04--> 00:16:08

it's really it's a reality. So like I said, I went through

00:16:09--> 00:16:10

the law, we

00:16:11--> 00:16:49

my brother's a bear our burdens a little bit lighter. You know, you said something a while back, you said that? You were very careful in saying it. I hope I say it correctly. You said that it's you know, sometimes in grateful that the person had to deal with some of these difficulties because it allows us to learn how to work with them, you know, you know, everything that Prophet did, became a lesson for us may be direct or indirect. The entire life of the prophet Salam was an open canvas for us to learn from and you know, dealing with difficulties is a part of life. If the Prophet never taught us how to do it, it would be an incomplete lesson. And he taught it to us, you know, so it's,

00:16:50--> 00:17:23

we have to know how to do it. So I'm Ella Teacher for more for showing the poem I gotta fix. Yes, it just it continues. It's not even just with Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam like you look at in surah Taha and you see how Allah speaks with such love to Musa while pay to Alikum habit and Mineola to Schneider Aney like I have cast upon you love from myself, but you look at the verses before it and the verses after describing mooses life and it's like this is his people are enslaved and he's he's being cast into a river and and

00:17:25--> 00:17:53

you you killed the person with a NACA for tuna fella with the see Nina Haley magenta magenta La La Cardinia Musa, and you were expelled and stayed for years in exile, you know, and we we tested you with these great tests. And Allah subhana data saying to him and I have cast upon you love for myself, right and so even as we're going through these trials, a person doesn't think that these are there to push them away if ALLAH SubhanA data gives you the strength and that in and of itself is

00:17:54--> 00:18:20

we're going into a lot of tangents unfortunately. But that's how it is one of the one of the greatest gifts I believe, that we have is our iman and other like we are an ummah that goes through all of the losses that all of humanity goes through and even more so. And we don't need to rely on a bottle to get through it. We don't need to rely on pills to get through it we say that Allah Masha Allah

00:18:21--> 00:18:48

we say in Allah who are in it, Roger on my own Salim said also name is one of my heroes from the Sahaba Her story is when I think of someone who's just like a smooth operator, like a boss, like someone who's just on Sudan and the mother of like, just strategic moves, that's also a mother in law now, the mother of NSF pneumatic and so when she's married to a portal, Helen Saudi, and they have a child and the child dies and she gives him this, this.

00:18:49--> 00:19:22

This, I mean, she in her in her own morning, she beautifies herself for her husband and he comes back and she says, he says How's the baby and she says, and the child had passed away she said, I scan my account the baby's as peaceful as can be. And they spent the night together and then the next day she's breaking the news and she tells him You know, this meaning of inadi Lucha nada Roger and she says if somebody had done to something and then they they want it, they want it back. Would you be okay with that? And he said, of course they have to have the right to she says then be patient, Allah subhana data has taken back our song. This is

00:19:24--> 00:19:31

rubbish the lady. Yeah, absolutely horrible, powerful personality. I mean, to be able to hear your pain and not express it on your face.

00:19:32--> 00:19:40

We go through a little pain and it's over motions. You know, she's carrying herself so strong. You know another woman that reminds me of a Mr. Lim is baraka, Amen.

00:19:41--> 00:19:46

You know, she lost her husband before and then she lost Amen, her son in her name.

00:19:48--> 00:19:51

She lost her son her name. And then she was married to say the inheritor

00:19:53--> 00:20:00

with the hardest adopters on the promises on them. He dies in Malta, so she lost her first husband.

00:20:00--> 00:20:34

And she lost her son. She lost her second husband. And she didn't she did cry, but it wasn't really heavy on her like when she lost the Profit System. You don't find it very common in the Sahaba that when they don't know when the Sahaba passes away, the prophet passes away the Sahaba everyone needs condolence, like everyone, like it's one of those people that he's a fan. He's a father. He's a friend to everyone in Medina, like, where do we start a condolence? Who do we serve condolence with, like, sometimes, you if someone visits you for condolence, the person visiting you needs to get comforted, you know, like, so when my brother passed away Rahmatullah Aliy there were so many people

00:20:34--> 00:20:48

coming and telling go cry, I had to, I had to tell you guys, it's okay. Things will get better, you know, Jana. So you have when you have a heart attack, when you have this close relative of men pass away.

00:20:50--> 00:21:28

When the province passes away Abu Bakr, I'm gonna say, Let's go to my aim and give our condolences to amendment because they knew that the level of love the prophets of salaam heteroatom, amen, amen for the proper care, Oh, me, but I don't mean, he's like my mother, you know, she was ever Cillian you know, and she was a special woman that, that prophets of love per month, and finally, the visit her and she's like, I'm not crying because a prophet passed away. Why I'm crying for revelation has ended. And so what does that show? Like? It's just the level of attachment to the revelation and the Quran and the sweet. Experiencing with that

00:21:29--> 00:21:35

is even greater than than the loss of the province of allied yes and no, which is just like this, taking it to another level. Now, what's

00:21:38--> 00:21:47

your budget? You know, I was gonna ask, you know, in Sharla, shook her mark, and tick, you know, he was given a small, brief window to speak, before we dive in, I'm fine with this format.

00:21:48--> 00:21:50

No matter we want you to

00:21:52--> 00:21:52

buy water until,

00:21:54--> 00:22:09

you know, I was still like him to speak for a few minutes if we can, but we don't like to dive into the topic. And then maybe he was sort of offering different topics was, you know, you're teaching zero intensive this year. And after, you know, dealing with our brothers situation, much more love.

00:22:10--> 00:22:46

And we're talking about the prophet as a teacher, this time when you're teaching the sealer, and while you're going through it, what have you noticed different, you know, as opposed to being a teacher noticing grief, but just in the total image in the perspective of the Prophet sums life and you know, if you can shed some light on it, and then she can mark and give his talk, and then we can move forward, if that's okay. Who I mean, she'll have to have, you know, sure, everyone knows a prophet is the best teacher, everyone knows the prophets have went through difficulties. The thing is that people do not know the definition of difficulty until they go through it themselves. Like we

00:22:46--> 00:23:20

talk about condemning condolence, we talk about standing at a funeral with someone walking away, we're talking about burying a friend's father or friend's mother. And then we go to a restaurant the same day with some of our friends. It just happens. very, like, you know, it's just part of the culture, we go, we move, people are buried. But to understand the pain of the Prophet, it requires to have a heart that's full of pain to like, not necessarily need to go through pain, but your heart has to be soft enough to appreciate pain of others. It doesn't have to be your own pain, someone else.

00:23:21--> 00:24:02

So when we when we see that the profit zone went through so much, and you sometimes feel like, you're not alone, you know, like a lot of times you have these support groups. The profit is the biggest support person, even in our time. So I found that the prophets of Salaam in his difficult times how strong he was, he cried. I mean, imagine the prophets have said I'm crying, and the loss of Ibrahim, but he did not forget to teach us Allah, what this crying meant. Like he could have just said, you know, that were the Sahaba or have an overseeing matter, the yellows mad, I also love my third book up, you're crying? Is Sunday running just passed away? Seriously, you're crying? Why are

00:24:02--> 00:24:05

you crying? And then the promises.

00:24:06--> 00:24:15

You don't have a bed. This is this is the rammer that Allah puts in the heart of his servant. You know, in basically he could have just said, you know, my son died

00:24:16--> 00:24:49

on crying. He say no, he's actually in his grief, still becoming a teacher. Grief, he's still expressing what pain means. letting the world know there's nothing wrong to cry. There's nothing wrong. There's nothing wrong in weeping. And I will tell them I will call boo yah has done well on Hulu in LA, my yoga Bureau and it says you're allowed to cry. You're allowed to have a painful heart, but you're only allowed to say what pleases Allah. So it ends right there like now when we talk it's like there's so many things we want to question but we just can't which was like, This is what Allah has

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

decreed for us and this is the decision so we see the prophets I'm you know, I also one of the main things I saw, I talked about this my Juma reminder today. I

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

I got to see that in every difficulty of the profit, they were the hidden, hidden minima.

00:25:07--> 00:25:14

Some of it, we can, we can recognize, and let's see, some of its hidden in a zero. Like there's an obvious

00:25:16--> 00:25:38

victories for the profit post difficulties, like Cardi B and Fatima aka and Haber, like, that's obvious. But there are so many difficulties that happen in our life, that we do not see them in person or experience. But there's deer we just don't understand. For example, in the boycott years, I talked about this in Sierra. And the three years of boycott, Abdullah bin bass was born.

00:25:39--> 00:26:25

Like, in the years that were the most difficult years of the Prophet's life in Morocco, this cousin of the Prophet is born to a father, who is non Muslim Abbas, whose mother or father is Muslim, and he's going to be the Mufasa. And so much so they start, the leader of the of the Quran has come to this world in time where the Muslims cannot even read Quran publicly. So he's letting us know that, hey, I know you can pray or do the love. But the arrival of Abdullah Abbas has come to Makkah, and it just goes on. And it goes like this are so many of these things. Sometimes, like, I think we need to start to look at our opinion, and also analyze, yes, I lost my father, my son is sick. We, you

00:26:25--> 00:27:03

know, in this child that has autism, or this, or this mother that has cancer, or this father with Parkinson's, something is happening. There's so much injera, that still in your life, and I continue to recognize that in the flow of it, even if you don't, someone said, Well, I don't know what you're talking about. I'm in Syria, I lost my father was my brother, I don't know where to go. I hear joint over my head every single day. You know what, you have multiple people waiting for you who are sheet on the Day of Judgment. So it's not over it just, you know, mode is the beginning of the expression of Allah's love is just the beginning. So I learned a lot through this

00:27:05--> 00:27:06

beautiful man.

00:27:07--> 00:27:44

You know, I think you're the point you made earlier, I don't want to stretch the conversation. But the point that you made earlier, you you alluded to the idea that we all need a pill we don't need a bottle to to console us. We just, we just need the Quran in the Quran opened up to the life of the prophet saw Selim in obviously, you know, there's still pain. I mean, I can actually say, agenda. Where's the hikma? And where's the net? I can feel that I experienced that. I still experienced that. And I hope they don't see it. And I don't make it a reality in my life. That was a heck of taking my brother. I don't see it, you know, but that's what you're saying. You just got to believe

00:27:44--> 00:28:09

it. And you said that Allah, masha Allah, and hopefully it opens up to us in our life. So we can actually, you know, feel good. And hopefully see when the gates of Jana Omar, you know, with the topic, going back to the topic of the Prophet being a teacher, you want to take over the screen and give a small spiel for five to seven minutes. And Chatelet would just jump back in at that time. How does that feel? Oh, you wanted to continue whatever is whatever you're comfortable with? I'm okay with just continuing.

00:28:11--> 00:28:18

I'm okay with that about about the issue of you know, still on the topic of sorrow and grief.

00:28:19--> 00:28:28

You know, I, I lost my father in a moment, Rahim Allah to Allah. And he, you know, he passed away in a heart attack over in Sudan. He had just he had traveled

00:28:29--> 00:28:40

to go to a wedding. You went to a wedding, you know, his his best one of his best friends called him up and said, My daughter is getting married. My dad said, Okay, I'm booking a flight. So he booked a flight. And

00:28:42--> 00:28:55

he passed away like him a lot, and just in asleep over there. And so I had a mentor student in 10 years up until that point, but all of a sudden, I found myself on a flight. You know,

00:28:56--> 00:29:36

and when I landed at the airport, and my family and we're from a village farmers, so your family is 1000 People Hamdulillah. And they were a lot at the airport. And when I was getting into the car, and my mother had I picked up my mom also and my sister, we were all traveling together. And we almost got split it we all actually did get split into separate cars, because everybody was being you know, everybody's got their set of close friends and relatives who wanted to be there for them. And so I'm in the car with a bunch of my uncle's, like, elder village men. And they're all in the car with me and

00:29:37--> 00:29:59

I'm talking to them and things like that. And they said to me, they said, like, 15 minutes later, they're like, Oh, my God, we, we were here to, to, you know, that they get a means to give you weight like to hold you down, and you're holding us down. Like the things that you're saying. And I told them I said, You know what, to be honest

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

I can't imagine how Allah subhanaw taala it's like storybook ending, like it was a storybook ending, if you told if you asked my dad like him a lot, where in the world would you have liked to have passed away? He would have told you other than Medina Of course, like his his village, his hometown. And Allah subhanaw taala brought him there in that moment, even though he had been outside of the country living outside of the country for 35 years, or four years, or however long it's been since he was a man. So sometimes you you see the the I still I mean, I think I grieved for maybe six months, like I was just in it afterwards. Like, it's, that's why I said to you, it's waves because

00:30:39--> 00:31:15

one moment you're fine one moment, you're not one moment. But one of the exercises that I learned is, and one of the reasons why we don't need pills is because what we know of Allah subhanaw taala, like our belief in Allah, where you can say, Oh, man took my father away. All right, man took my brother away. Like what does that immediately like? What is what's the framing of that is that the one who's more merciful to me and to my brother, than I am, took me away, took him away, the one who's more merciful to my father, than I am or the one who was more merciful to me than I am.

00:31:17--> 00:31:58

Took my father away in this moment. And we believe that ALLAH SubhanA died is that hucking we believe that ALLAH SubhanA died is, oof, he doesn't want us to go through difficulty. We believe that Allah subhanaw taala is, I mean, he knows what's best. And he's Kadir so all of these things. And hence, you know, even our basketball the line when a person gave him condolences, he told him on the death of Al Abbas, he said that a lab Allah is better for you than an ibis. And Allah is better for an ambassador knew. And I've been my boss was like, that was the best condolences because it gave everything that framing that Allah is better for me. Right? Yeah, that transition is real and

00:31:58--> 00:32:07

you're going to a Rama and hence the loss of Hannah data says and sort of medium that beautiful, that beautiful period where Allah subhanho data says

00:32:11--> 00:32:13

I'm forgetting it now. It's

00:32:14--> 00:32:18

in reference to in reference to it's at the end now.

00:32:20--> 00:32:22

You'll help me catch it. And so

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

I want to SoCal Mutsumi agenda. Wait, say the first one I got your connection with Athena. Yo my natural Mata Tina Illa. Allah.

00:32:36--> 00:33:06

So Allah Subhana Allah says, we're going to take the what did you mean to Johanna, but he doesn't say we're going to take the team to Jana. He says we're taking them to Rama. Wow. Beautiful, beautiful. It's about who you're going to as well. Not just about where you're going. You can go to the most beautiful place in the world. I can go to Detroit. But if I don't see the mache there if I don't see my brother's there if I don't see right. Sometimes it's the people that make a place. Amazing agenda. It's Allah subhanaw taala.

00:33:08--> 00:33:09

Does a good point.

00:33:11--> 00:33:14

These hangouts I'll just throw up alliums. And you guys just catch them for me

00:33:17--> 00:33:18

in debates and Filton.

00:33:19--> 00:33:20


00:33:22--> 00:33:29

Absolutely. He's like I just don't want to house and Jana, I want to look differently in the cabinet. I want I want to do first and I want the house next to you. Cool.

00:33:32--> 00:33:43

But that's that's what I mean, I don't know if the topic. That's what I meant to refer to the sun in the Quran refer to Villa Dean Central was

00:33:44--> 00:33:51

referring to being with Allah subhanaw taala. In order to do that we were just sort of in it always catches me off guard. You know, Helen just

00:33:52--> 00:34:34

said, because I see that in Surah Rahman, Allah subhanaw taala. When he's describing Jana, he's describing from, if we could say, a smaller blessing to a greater blessing. And that's what that's how it works. It's going from trees, water to family, to sit downs, to gatherings. And then it goes to hell just out there sun in the sun, which means is the reward for good anything but good and like, but how does that come in the framework of, of this sequence? And if you look a little deeper in that area, and I came across something interesting of Razi says that sun in this world is entirely Buddha, Allah Kana. Katara. To worship Allah as if you can see him which we can never truly

00:34:34--> 00:34:59

see Allah in the sense of laughter to recall our sorrow historical episode. But the idea in the notion of everything, which is idea or theory has to be practical. And that's what we believe in Islam. Sometimes. Some things are is better when there's when they're in theory, right? But because the time will come where they'll become practical, and Allah says, it'll Sun if we lived her entire life, with a sense of sun. A day will come

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

It will become real for us where we will see Allah subhanaw taala and we will experience that type of a gathering where we'll be fulfilled now let

00:35:09--> 00:35:20

me tell you Bucha it's one part but seeing Allah subhana is a whole different situation and being with him and being around him of course is a whole discussion on its own. I never thought about hunters out there sound like that? MashAllah

00:35:22--> 00:35:25

you got my you got me off guard gotta tip my coffee for you.

00:35:26--> 00:35:28

You're never to be cooking for me man. Well, younger brother.

00:35:29--> 00:35:29

Taken all

00:35:31--> 00:35:49

the elements that I was five. So you know, he just believes us. So it's cool. We're used to that. But, but, but refer Jen. I want to kind of try to see if we can talk about the person was a teacher even in happiness. How was the prophet a teacher and happiness? How did he teach us? I want to go there. I want to hear another poem for sure.

00:35:52--> 00:36:00

Give me the poem of who is Muhammad? Oh, I love that one prophets. Allah. Allah. They said Allah. Yeah, so the idea behind this one

00:36:01--> 00:36:10

was I was in high school when I first had the thought. And as you remember, just thinking this in high school, like, why are you a bad boy in high school? You're always a good boy.

00:36:12--> 00:36:13

I don't think I'm a good boy now.

00:36:20--> 00:36:28

That's a good poem. So you're good. You must be a good barrier. I try 100 I one thing that I do do well is I conceal my sins and hamdulillah like out of everything.

00:36:31--> 00:36:38

I know I wear a lot of concealer. Also, I'm saying I just don't expose myself and I'm divine. I pray ALLAH SubhanA Dada nonexposed me on

00:36:40--> 00:36:58

where you're in your rap battles when you're in high school? No, in fact, I never even knew I could write. This was a later development. So I wish I did. Subhanallah my father had no luck, you know, because one of the things he did was he sent me to private school, all of his kids just, we didn't go to Islamic school, but he was like, You're not going to public school.

00:36:59--> 00:37:31

And so, my friends, they make fun of this now, and they say, you know, but when you're in school, and you're getting like, yelled at because of your grades, and you're being told, what's an African parent gonna tell you, it's like, I'm paying this much money for you to, you know, be nice. You better get me A's. And my response, like all of my other siblings was like, Okay, well, guess what, you don't need to pay all of this money. I can just go to public school. And I'll enjoy. He'd be like my dad about him. And I was like, Oh, so you go to public school? Why so you can become a rapper? It's like, that's what you're going

00:37:32--> 00:37:43

to you? Yeah, I didn't even know that I had any sort of poetic inclination. Anyway, I didn't know that I had any. So Subhanallah maybe maybe if I went to public school, I probably would have, we'd be having a different session right now.

00:37:46--> 00:37:51

I'd love for you to, to preserve you for a better cause. And

00:37:52--> 00:38:26

we want to hear you continue about that discussion. Yeah. So in high school, I remember having that thought like, why is it that I don't see it or sort of lost a little light I said, represented in any, in any capacity in, in the US, like, are you telling me like I would, you know, I'm growing up in New York. It's very multicultural. It's very, you know, here, you're here, you'll see a billboard, you'll see, you know, you'll go into a Chinese restaurant, and you'll see like these, you know, quotes and not just Chinese restaurants, you'll see these quotes of Buddha and these quotes of Confucius and these quotes of all of these people are thinking to myself, like you're telling me

00:38:26--> 00:38:37

that a sort of loss of Allah Salah Mohammed Abdullah does not have a single quote, that is of any benefit to anybody who's not Muslim. Like is, does that make sense? Like

00:38:38--> 00:38:47

I said them says, like, you know, they're not a believer, those who go to sleep full while their neighbors are hungry. Like that couldn't be a quote against homelessness.

00:38:49--> 00:38:52

Everywhere, you can call them a woman to love them.

00:38:53--> 00:39:07

They got Malala everywhere, according Mallanna. Yeah, exactly. Like you're telling me that also I said, I'm saying, you know, there's a reward for kindness for every living being, that's not a quote worth being on a bus somewhere at some point in time. Like, why is Rasulullah sallallahu?

00:39:09--> 00:39:13

Intentionally it seemed like, intentionally avoided right and erased.

00:39:14--> 00:39:15

And so

00:39:17--> 00:40:00

I mean, way later, years, years later, you know, there's, I wrote this poem, and it goes, when a man has a billion and a half followers, his status in history isn't debated. So why is the greatest man then when great men are rated the one that you don't know? His name is the most popular in the world. His fame encompasses the globe. His message was to worship God alone. His method was mercy to friend and foe. Why is it then that you don't know? He was the man who stood up when his daughter entered the room with Stan and cedar where he was seated. He was the husband who sent an army ahead so he could foot race his wife and lamp Cha and left charmingly when defeated. He was

00:40:00--> 00:40:36

The prophet who told us that paradise lies at the feet of our mother into love for ourselves or we would love for each other his companions were Persian, Roman, Jewish, Arab, black, he taught us we're all the same because we all come from Adam. In fact, if there was any difference in us, it would simply be the one grader in the sight of God is the one with more piety. He's the most documented figure in history, his walk, his talk is statements, his thoughts how he loved and fought what he wasn't, was not everything that he taught, is there for you to read. He's the man who had the world at his feet and would go days without food to eat. He loved the poor and the meek. God was

00:40:36--> 00:40:44

all that he would seek. Enrich your heart and find out about the best man that you don't know. So a lot is in

00:40:46--> 00:40:48

the hand we'll talk we're gonna get

00:40:50--> 00:40:50


00:40:51--> 00:40:58

for that for the people watching live. This is the time for you to share the fire emojis. We need the fire emojis right there already started it's

00:40:59--> 00:41:03

not doing enough. I think they got to get lit lit up lit up the chat

00:41:10--> 00:41:31

in you pretty much like you tried to cover different parts of Sierra and different poems. Like I mean, I mean, I just found little sort of lost so I said, I mean, for me it's just love writing about the province a little I said, I'm hopefully one day I have in my mind, I have to write a description of Roswell was was a good friend of the Prophet. Yeah, I want to I want to I want to do what my buddy did. And just, you know,

00:41:34--> 00:41:40

what part of Mama's poem dude that touches your heart the most? Oh, my goodness, I love because it's

00:41:42--> 00:42:03

my buds description is so beautiful. Because number one, you realize how many of the companions didn't describe him? Because they said, like we were, I couldn't even fill my eyes with him like, yeah. So I was joking once recently, and I said, you need a woman to kind of notice everything you need her to describe it, even though she saw him once in the past that the hijab.

00:42:04--> 00:42:05


00:42:07--> 00:42:22

what is my favorite part of what my boss thinks? She says, Well, the first thing that she notices is the same thing that remodel the line who notices about God while Harold was just cleanliness? Well, it's clean. Like, there's just your first impressions really matter. And she notices that obliging?

00:42:25--> 00:42:27

Isn't the desert that can you imagine?

00:42:28--> 00:42:49

He was so clean? So you know, so hard? Like, you know, I've in Sudan growing up, we would travel three hours to go to the village from Hearthstone. And by the time you got there, you would, and you're in the back of a pickup truck, you're just coded in dirt and sad. By the worship, you know, my parents have been to Sudan, the

00:42:51--> 00:42:51


00:42:52--> 00:42:53

for four months.

00:42:54--> 00:43:22

Within the villages met, my mom has been, you know, them out there. They were there with the whole, like a whole GEMA you know, crude war in Sudan and my mother still till today talks about the hospitality of the people of Sudan man, their love and their comfort is you know, she, she's, she speaks a little bit of that language too. I'm like, I mean, gee, man, that's enough, man. That's an amazing mashallah law. And that's, that's, that's incredible to hear.

00:43:23--> 00:43:32

Because you were talking about the courtroom and the villages and remember, of course, martial law. What? Well, depending on what decade they want it, I mean, their experience must have been rough and rugged.

00:43:34--> 00:43:48

At mashallah, Mashallah. That's amazing, man. That's amazing. Like, they're going into villages that don't have electricity and stuff like that. Yeah, my village got electricity in 97. When my neighbor, my neighboring village, the one that's literally like,

00:43:49--> 00:44:07

a 10 minute walk over they got electricity two years ago. It's progressing very slowly. Rammstein. But yeah, hospitality. One of the things that you learned obviously, is that generosity has nothing to do with wealth. generosity has everything to do with attitude. And so you have so many people who don't have but they're gonna share with you what they have.

00:44:09--> 00:44:10

I'm gonna do a similar

00:44:12--> 00:44:50

Bob Lynch with which he has an unhealthy, beautiful, and then she's until she says, We'll see when Kasim would fit in a Dodge. One of the things that I love the most about my butt's she says, I hate the idea of you as far as water for fear and okay, sorry, he's okay. So had he had a rasp Enos to his waist and Elijah said love and he had a he had arching eyebrows as edge occurred, that he was he had good or it looked like he had grown on his eyes. He had arching eyebrows, he had up Quran meaning that he had hair between His eyes, Salado syndrome, or she considered it to be what other companions said that it wasn't there was a vein that you said, we know.

00:44:52--> 00:45:00

Exactly when he would become angry. So I sent him and I used to think like, how when did he become angry in the moment of OMAP but but the story of

00:45:00--> 00:45:12

but of course he he milks a goat or he mocks the sheep. And so you might think that the lighting might have been cast at a moment where he was doing some sort of physical exertion. But one of the things I think that really

00:45:14--> 00:45:24

I mean, I love the whole the whole narration but I love it so much the way that abou work response she notices like part of your a person's

00:45:25--> 00:45:48

ambiance is there is there gravitas, right the way that other people respond to you. So she's realizing that his little Faqad like the people with him, that if he speaks to a food on, they respond to him right away and tobacco. They just they just race to wherever it is. And so that was all part of Rasulullah sallallahu there's and loves.

00:45:50--> 00:46:08

It's it's not just his physical look. But the oral, the oral, the oral was big, you know, like when Hindi had it, you know, describes the Prophet salam to Hassan Ali Allah and he starts off by saying kennela Sula, he said Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam a foul Minh for have been

00:46:09--> 00:46:48

asked to describe someone that has one good quality or one beautiful, you know, limb in their body. It's easy. You can start with that one thing and end there. But ask someone to describe the most beautiful being the world has ever seen. Where do you start? Where do you end, the discussion never stops. But he starts in a very interesting part. He says, For Herman, for Herman. This has less to do with his physical beauty and more to do with how he made people feel around them, for him and for him, and he was so naturally honorable, like he held himself in a way which was, you know, I know who I am in the sense that I want to make sure this message is not compromised. But it doesn't stop

00:46:48--> 00:47:24

there. But rather, I also make you feel honorable else and make you feel special. My father would always tell us when we're chilled kids, and we still tells us, you will say, respect your teachers, your students will respect you. Respect your parents, your children will respect you respect people, people respect you. Right? Don't limit your generosity to specific individuals, because you will only receive it from those individuals. And we're still in the field of the person that he received. He will he was the recipient of all of these qualities from his Sahabas because he first manifested in his life to them, you know, but then you were saying it today about opening was without coffee

00:47:24--> 00:47:45

where he says, my right I had a new album or hadn't come out your album was harder Muhammad and Muhammad. So Allah Azza wa sallam and I'm like, That's because he gave it to them first. You know, he showed them love, he showed them respect, and they gave it now you're gonna get me into a completely different, but it's one of my favorite aspects of the seal of the province of Allah is Allah.

00:47:46--> 00:47:58

And that is the way that he did this incredible therapy of the companions, just incredible. Like one of the things that he did Salah Lila salah, was that he

00:48:00--> 00:48:41

he did not allow for anyone to belittle themselves. Yeah. And he would remove whatever insecurity a person had, he would remove that sense of insecurity, and he would replace it with a source of, of dignity and confidence. Like, how do you get Bidadi? Mirabai? Like, if you think about it, how does that even get to the point where he stands on top of the car? Like how do you how do you how do you this person was a slave in that city? You know, slave means like he would have been killed and there would have been no hashtag for him. There would have been no Human Rights Watch. There would have been no public pressure there would have been no protest there would have been nothing for benighted

00:48:41--> 00:49:08

middlebox so when this is your life, how do you transform to the point where you're able to return back to that city like we let's be real we live in the United States. You see around you in your community so many people who have so much insecurity just because they don't speak the accent? Like a natural born American every message that I go to every heartbeat that I give the compliment that I get no matter where I go right after as what

00:49:09--> 00:49:17

English Yeah, your English is just so amazing accent you born here like what it says right? No accent like it's just this is this is

00:49:18--> 00:49:20

you don't you don't go to Texas accent you don't

00:49:23--> 00:49:27

that isn't the Texas accent. I don't have it either. Texas accent

00:49:30--> 00:49:40

the New York accent as a real live handle. I don't have the New York accent that's one thing I wish that I had gotten it just I never absorbed it just there fortunately, come on you got

00:49:42--> 00:49:45

you got it you got it. No, that's not it either. But

00:49:47--> 00:49:49

you're not good with impressions chef like whatever.

00:49:50--> 00:49:52

You're good with jokes me what impresses

00:49:55--> 00:49:57

the good enough to make my kids happy handed.

00:50:00--> 00:50:26

From what did you say? You go ahead, you were saying some good stuff? Like how does we get to the point where he, you know, when when we see how people are so insecure just and they're full citizens and all of that type of stuff in a society that we're living in, in modernity? How does below the metal bar hang on these other companions? How do they get to the point where they're so confident? Where are the liveness? Oh, this little way, elf, I know that John is so shocked that he would actually step on

00:50:27--> 00:51:01

him, this little shepherd boys, what I've lived numerous Foods was viewed as in Mecca, how does he get to the point where he's like, there's not a verse of the book of Allah, except that I know whether it was revealed in the night or in the day. And if there was anybody who knew more about the Quran than I did, who could be reached by camels, then I then I would travel to that, like, how do you get to that point where these people are like that. And you see that also, the last lesson is, we talked about the daddy of the prophesy centum, he was also the master and wouldn't be as well. And just one of the things is one of the ingredients was that he didn't allow for people to to

00:51:01--> 00:51:33

belittle themselves, you he didn't allow anybody to break their own wings, or to break the wings of their brothers and sisters, we need whatever whoever he's got, right? I need my, I need them to be at full potential. I need them to be beyond their capacity and beyond their perceived capability. And so you see that you see that with Bellagio Raba. And the story with Abu Dhabi, where he was belittled because of who his mother was, and the Prophet saw the light as I did, and corrected Abu Dhabi and he told him that that's the idea. And you see that with

00:51:34--> 00:51:37

no news himself, right? I was 11 years old, this climbing a tree.

00:51:39--> 00:52:10

You know, he's got scrawny legs and muscle, how are laughing but you don't know where people's insecurities lie. You know, that person who's really skinny, they could be very insecure about being skinny. And the person who's overweight could be insecure about being overweight, and the person who's tall or the person who's short. And so when you poke it that even in fun, you might be poking at an insecurity. And so the Prophet cellulitis says at that Hacohen I mean, Kathy, are you laughing because of how scrawny his legs are applied news foods, will let you know CBD Lahoma as Kalu

00:52:11--> 00:52:13

filmi Zanni Minjae Berry,

00:52:15--> 00:52:55

they are going to be more weighty on the scales than the mountain of Yes. Even though I can imagine jumping down from that tree like I'm pretty heavy, actually. You know, let's check her weight again. He was willing to this giant he's a giant Subhanallah you know what you're seeing the prophet would also do that to speed people, like spiritual insecurities like their contributions, if they felt like when someone donated a little bit money and then whenever you're going to looking at them giving them lemons at home, you know, and they're looking at them like what what donation is that? And then the prophecy lesson and said no, no, that a small hand of their donation is heavier than a

00:52:55--> 00:53:33

mountain of what have you. We're just even, like sometimes we see a big check and donations 20,000 dark beer, like you know, you know, and then we like a small donation the Prophet son was able to value even that even when a Bula Hubbs daughter joins a prophet some in Medina, one of the women of Medina said, Well, you didn't do Hijra came from habitat. She gave him habitat. You didn't come from Makkah. So the prophets have said and then she comes crying to the Prophet. She said awesome Allah, you know, they're saying I'm not I don't get the rewards and Mahajan. I don't get this is the daughter of Abu Lahab. The man that tortured the Prophet nonstop, not like he was always on the

00:53:33--> 00:54:10

prophets case. The prophets of salaam says welcome Angel return. You are not just a Mahajan. Once you're in Mahajan, toys you went to Habesha and you came to many like basically what they were considering like she didn't do enough the province that you didn't more than enough like he was able to just make people's like Islamic contribution insecurity as you magnify that they're even though they were stuttering the there's a new reason hasn't one of the grandsons a prophet would stutter. And the prophets Allah Salam, you know what? Had to listen to multiple times the Sahaba got little the word that you're disturbing the Prophet No, this is he's inherited it from his grandparents, you

00:54:10--> 00:54:11


00:54:12--> 00:54:18

So he kind of even stood up for his grandchildren for women for men. Everything around he was just so

00:54:19--> 00:54:35

I want you to estoy my Sofia, I really liked that story. Oh, man, it's true of Sofia. Amazing. So you're the daughter of a Jew. Who is you know, us like what? Tell her tell them to the daughter daughter of Prophet Harun. You like and Musa Musa.

00:54:38--> 00:54:43

Mohammed and you're not just a daughter of a prophet you also a wife of a prophet who else has no

00:54:45--> 00:54:59

budget like I say this, you know, of course we're nobodies. But I really feel like after sitting in a couple of syrup for this whole week and studying Shama and teaching Shanna ill. I feel like one of the greatest miracles of the Prophet SAW Allah Allah he was setting

00:55:00--> 00:55:05

I was that he was able to create sahabas. And I say that, you know, like,

00:55:06--> 00:55:51

lightly in a sense that of course, the Quran is the greatest miracle that was given to him. But the greatest miracle of the Prophet salaam was that he was able to create Sahabas individuals, individuals and personalities that were able to carry on his legacy and move it to every corner of the world. Like you think about a good a good father or a mother, there are those individuals that even when they're not there, the children continue doing good, they continue doing well. A good CEO, a good boss, a good manager is when he or she is absent. The work is not stopping. The Prophet Salam was able to create individuals personalities, not from the same family, not from the same skill set,

00:55:51--> 00:56:31

not from the same ethnicity, but rather from every corner of the world with a different skill set with a different perspective, with different experiences. And he was still able to engage with them to such an extent that he knew what they liked, what their weakness was, what their strength was, and how he was able to grow that potential. That's profound to me, a coach can have 12 players in a basketball team, and still struggle, a father can have four kids, and still struggle, because I know the strength of this child. And I'm trying to use that same methodology for another child, but it doesn't work. You know, every person is different. And the only way that I see that it was possible

00:56:31--> 00:57:07

is because he actually cared. He actually cared about every single person, enough that he was able to take the goodness out from them, like the time that he was in the shop and this he grabbed him from the back and he held them in a bear hug. And he started you know, trying to get out of that bear hug and the problem says man yesterday mini hurdle Hula, hula by the slave for me. And the man notice that it was the hands of the Prophet holding him so he stopped, you know, trying to get out and he was actually feeling very honored, honored. He says he doesn't want it anycast then yeah rasool Allah, then you'll find me to be very insignificant. You want to sell me for the lid on

00:57:07--> 00:57:18

himself, right? He's not gonna let you put some down, look some dead in the eyes, and says to him all my friend, well, I can end the law here earlier.

00:57:20--> 00:57:58

Now you are very precious, in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala you are very special in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala we sometimes knowingly or unknowingly put down people who are not only honorable in the eyes of Allah, but even honorable in our own eyes. We know that good people. We know they're special. They have talents. Why are you putting them down I citizen today my Chanel session, that we're not only responsible for what we say, we are responsible for how it's received a buy that in nomina, MLB, Nguyet. muamalat is not new yet. It's about how the person takes it. Oh, they receive it, what their reaction is, you notice it's not your knee I when it comes to the left

00:57:58--> 00:58:35

and Nika. The fact you said it was enough. Right? So we're talking about TED to be in while Lehman approach Salam was was a pity me of that just because he was able to create all these different personalities. I don't think I'm gonna You're You're the guest today. So please try to if you can expand upon that and just continue from there and continue, you know, dropping your wisdom. I think with regards to what you said, it's really profound of the thing that comes to my mind is maybe how the prophesy centum did it. As far as creating those Sahaba I think three things come to my mind. Number one is the focus. He directed them to towards a focus

00:58:36--> 00:59:18

that was bigger than him. Subhana wa Tada guarded and Mr. Liquid cadmatic was going through his Toba process, and he's being boycotted for 50 days by the Muslim community for Sahaba. He says, and the thing that weighed on me the most was that either I die and the profits are modest, and I'm not praying over me imagine that disaster, oh my god. And number two, he said are the prophets cellulitis and them die? Because he said, If the Prophet saw the light is said and died, this order would be enacted for the rest of my life, they would never ever welcome you back in. Wow. And so the show that I have this hadith they talk about, like look at the incredible tetapi of the Prophet

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

sallallahu Sallam his leadership that so many people like you mentioned, right parents, you might have a parent who is holding the family together, but then as soon as that person dies, the family goes in all sorts of directions. Or you might have a CEO of a company who's holding the company together and then as soon as the CEO dies or the founder of an organization or the founder of a movement or a country even or what have you. And as soon as but God given numeric knows that even for a sort of loss of alias and and passed away this, there's no Splinter happening here. And the reason is because and this is this is an issue

01:00:00--> 01:00:29

audible terribIe a point for parents as well. You know, there's this brother, I always share their story with his brother. It was so amazing to me this brother in the masjid one time, he says to me, he said, I tell my kids, you want to know when y'all will be Muslim? Right? He's from Texas. So he says, y'all, he says, You want to know when y'all doing stuff? And he's like, my kids always say to me, like, What do you mean, Baba? Like, of course, we're Muslim. He says, No, y'all will be Muslim. When y'all pray without me or your mother telling you to pray.

01:00:30--> 01:01:09

Like, that's when you that's when you'll be Muslim. When and that that'd be as important because he's basically he's telling them like, if you are praying because of my presence, or your mother's presence, then there's going to be a moment where I'm not there, whether by death or by distance, or what have you like, and that's what I will simply reminded them of when Kenny Abu Mohammed, Mohammed Abdullah and Allahu Allah subhanaw taala was a rich worship Muhammad Muhammad. He's passed away, but whoever's worshipping Allah, Allah and Surah Surah Lasala Lila, send them because he had raised the companions to focus on Allah subhanaw taala that was going to outlast him. And it's, of course, it's

01:01:09--> 01:01:14

going to last as long as belief in Allah subhana data remains on this earth. Number two,

01:01:16--> 01:01:20

the prophet cellulitis and limbs method of,

01:01:21--> 01:01:25

and this is brilliant. And I heard this from a Muslim psychologist.

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

He said, I never saw this in anybody other than that, also, blah, blah. So I said that he would

01:01:32--> 01:02:09

constantly praise His Sahaba. And that's why it's so amazing to me how we have we've developed this culture, as far as Muslims, that we don't praise people because I don't want to mess with their sincerity. And so we have a community where nobody ever praises anybody, but then we just criticize each other. And we wonder why we have self confidence issues and why we have you know, when you look in the books of Hadith, and you see the books of the virtues, the monastic I mean, what is that other than Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam simply praising companions, he's praising aboubaker Eema and and he's praising almost anyone he's praying. He has virtue over women, and he's praising Abu Musa

01:02:09--> 01:02:45

lash it is recitation, and he's praising beloved netravati, because he hears his footsteps in Jannah. And he's praising it, and he's praising them and he's the mean of his own money. I mean, it's just praise after praise after praise. And what this psychologist said is that he said, I never saw this in anybody the Prophet cellulitis and MCs, a quality that is beautiful. And then he will praise the companion for having that quality and guess what do you think that companion is not going to do when he has been praised for a quality by the province of mice and that he's going to perfect that quality? So it's mine is only going to perfect his hire even more. And Abdullah Omar Nirmal

01:02:45--> 01:02:50

Locanda accumulate I'm delighted you're Ahmed is now going to pray camera live for a short right and

01:02:52--> 01:03:15

the lighting boss was going to seek that fifth of understanding of the religion and to learn the book as he hears the drought of the Prophet Salah Midas right and so the prophesy said I'm noticing what the companions are naturally talented at what natural gifts Allah subhanho data had given them what things they're inclined to and praising them for it and continuing to encourage them in it.

01:03:16--> 01:03:19

As for the third one, I It slipped my mind so maybe it'll come back

01:03:21--> 01:03:37

to those two were just so powerful like I gotta Ammar camera looks good. He looks good. He speaks new Are you trying to practice the praise right now you just start you're not gonna get me brother. I was born at night but I wasn't born last night.

01:03:38--> 01:03:38

We just

01:03:40--> 01:03:42

you know, live the sooner you know.

01:03:44--> 01:04:22

You know you know you got the you got two poems. Mashallah. You got the message. You saw clearly. That thing Yeah, like man, that's all I'm doing. Oh man, we all know Accu there Mashallah. Mashallah, you are really inspiring us. And these two points I just brought up about prophecies on being able to identify and then being able to maximize their potential. A lot of people can identify, but no one can make maximize like, everyone knows someone's potential in the classroom. Oh, Mashallah. You're a good writer. What do you do is that the promises of takes that talent to the next level? Like, he's, he's not gonna tell how to do at least you're wanting to leave throw away?

01:04:23--> 01:04:59

Like, yes, I believe I know you can do that. Like I didn't get time to learn too much Quran like obey even the carbon was in the German, but the promises of knew what he could do. He imagined I might have been asked so the other one has clearly been bullied month and two months after becoming Muslim. They're sent in a group and their offices in charge of sodomy will call muda Sahaba who are like ashover. So like, I've been asked to like just learning how to pray. And there's an argument that the province isn't like, he's taking a person that's coming from what the skill set and maximizing the read back into some, you know, put the differences now

01:05:00--> 01:05:17

Is that we have the talent and resources, but our talent and resources being used by someone else for another cause the profits of companies that talent and resources, they use it for the focus cause that you were talking about. And if we all learn to do something like that, man, there's movement, there's a movement.

01:05:19--> 01:05:22

Laura, I will my daughter, yeah.

01:05:23--> 01:06:00

15 year old, 14 year old after an after the battle. He's one of the kids of Mecca. And they hear he's a mechanic at the time, and he hears the the event being called by the Muslim Council. And, hey, he's a group of he's with nine other kids. And they're all mocking the NRA. They're all just like, all right, their marker and little solar loss a little light so them doesn't hear. Not you know, cool for teenagers, non Muslim teenagers, mocking the that he hears a beautiful voice amongst them. Wow, he calls all of them. Wow.

01:06:01--> 01:06:09

And he has each one of them recite each one of you? Which one was which one was it? Which one was it until he gets to the last one. And he recites and he says

01:06:11--> 01:06:22

and he said, what I said that he placed his forehead, forehead on his hand on my on my hair like this. And he made that for me. And all hatred left my heart for him.

01:06:24--> 01:06:42

You're talking about finding a skill set right away. And then what the loss of the license I'm doing. He told him he said, go make a gun in the huddle. in Makkah, go meet the guy. He's like jasola, like you come across this hadith and you're learning about the dawn, right? And he said, What should I say and the Prophet SAW I said, I'm told him what to say

01:06:44--> 01:07:05

how to make the event and he made the plan for the rest of his life and his son media. Then after that his grandson made the then after that, and his great grandson made the identity mama shout out to him a lot later on to say I heard his great grandson making the iodine in Mecca. And of course, that one part that the problem is that Elias and him had touched that never ever went gray.

01:07:06--> 01:07:27

But I mean, it's just completely looking beyond any sort of ego or anything like that this is this person has just showcase some brilliance showcase some gift. And he takes advantage of it. I mean, you know, sort of level it was telling him what a beautiful story and you brought that back to our attention, guys, you know, some tech we've lost that

01:07:30--> 01:08:12

beautiful four story, like, you know, parents, they see like ingenuity, talent and a child or like this curiosity teletype and the child is it no become doctor, like, they will change it to science, like, they will make sure that talent is diffuse and they want to make them decides I'm not seeing signs of the bad talent. But again, even in academic skills, spiritual skills, you know, miftah, right, has this program called miftah talent. And it's basically for kids from the age of like four or five to 12 just to discover their voice. Now, of course, you know, kids have YouTube and kids have you know, they they have all these other channels to just listen, but who can listen to them

01:08:12--> 01:08:48

and tell them you rethink good that's all you have to do this people are like wow, you're our children are learning like you're always there. They had it within we just had someone listen to them and recite back to them in a in a teacher manner. And now these kids are just I hear like them if that talent. I was I was on one of the Zoom calls with the parents. And honestly, I camera my camera off. i My eyes were wet majority of the time because the parents were just discovering their children can recite Quran so beautiful. They can mothers were like, in from Calgary,

01:08:49--> 01:08:58

Alberta from California, all across hundreds of families. They're like we just can't We can't imagine. We can't imagine our children on this.

01:09:00--> 01:09:39

So it's amazing what talent exists in a four year old. It's amazing. Right? And there's also it's also amazing how much wisdom and talent is still in an 80 year old that there's something in that person where prophets Allah sent them a man come to provinces like I'm old, you know, Kabbalah send me what I will be like, I'm just like, my hair is here is great, but bones are aching. But I want to learn some knowledge. Like I want to I want to join your school man and someone comes to like a monk wherever with dark or some institute that color Parliament's do. Now like you know, give me sign me up and we're like, Excuse me, sir. You just retired. You know, I think you've spent some time with

01:09:39--> 01:09:55

your family. This man comes to the province and retired. Oh, and he's admitting his weakness. The province of southern says Marhaba and Marhaba marhaba Welcome. Welcome to Parliament. I just called him a foreigner but at this old age and he's like, in America to

01:09:57--> 01:09:59

the angels are under your feet my uncle and he comes

01:10:00--> 01:10:27

To learn from the Prophet, so the person is approximately able to take a four year old and maximize in a child who's an infant and old man. I swear, we, like you're talking about, you know, how are we talking about his poem, The poem that you said there was so much in the two poems, and I'm sure we would love to hear some more from you. But I love it the way you encapsulate so much Syrah, just few lyrics, it's just so rich, I'm really happy to hear that from you.

01:10:29--> 01:10:36

Because that's the goal for sure. So to hear from if that's, that's, that's, that's great. We just benefit from each other shift.

01:10:37--> 01:11:14

Poetry I'm sure you're thinking about, you have a translation of some of the manga Shafi is called my brother showed me You gave him the Pope, mashallah, you, you know, you know, how there's like poems, and then the shadow heart of the poem. In English, I know if you can start doing when you read a poem. And you know, about Allah Akbar, or like, you know, like, you know, like other points that come, you have to like, even the English language, we under people might understand it, but like, the context of that poem, people are going to be people already love your language, your art, they really bought into this, you know, this, this art skill that you have, and then you capture

01:11:14--> 01:11:34

them to the art. It's just a great message. We love we want to hear some more points. Would you please allow me to do one more shoulder shift? No, it's a different topic. It's a general one, you know? I'm not sure if your sister Marina is the one that told me to ask you if you can read How about let me do this one I want to do I want to finish my

01:11:35--> 01:11:37

seal trilogy.

01:11:39--> 01:11:41

01:11:42--> 01:11:44

This is called until I see you.

01:11:46--> 01:11:51

Chef, If you'd allow me Can I share the screen? Can I share my screen? Sure, sure. Please please.

01:11:52--> 01:11:56

So let me do this. I will one second I will.

01:12:00--> 01:12:07

They know Shikamaru going to share his screen with us. And mashallah, you know, very inspiring talent with shakaama Sikri.

01:12:09--> 01:12:22

For so many people who are tuning into miftah and watching him for the first time, may Allah make dua for him May Allah bless him his family, when we continue to optimize the talent in our community in Charlotte spelled out I'll give the

01:12:24--> 01:12:25

Irish tryna

01:12:26--> 01:12:28

here we go allow.

01:12:29--> 01:12:33

Okay, it's telling me that the browser can't access my screen. So.

01:12:34--> 01:12:35

Okay, that's fine.

01:12:37--> 01:13:01

This poem, you can find it on YouTube. It's called until I see you and it was great kinetic biography, kinetic typography piece. But initially, I had had in my mind, I had wanted to write a letter to the Prophet civil lightness and, and I wrote a couple of letters, and they never came out how I wanted. And then one day, I remember I hopped onto the subway hopped onto the train.

01:13:02--> 01:13:48

And I pulled up this, my laptop and this poem came out. And those are always my favorite poems, the ones that just, they just come out. And so this is a letter to Rasulullah sallallahu. They send them and it goes, you're the best person I've ever known. The best friend I've never met. Your sincerity to me is blinding enough to completely canvass the world with drapes that read, respect, honor, love, protect, while creating a window for me to zoom in on the important things, but those are the things that I forget or neglect, I will do better. Your own is fine, not because of me or mine are wounds that heal with time those who would die for $1 sign but because of promises divine. So when

01:13:48--> 01:14:23

we feel like we're at our worst, and our sadness would cause our hearts to burst, it feels like there are times when there are angels within our lines are hovering over squares, which tends to freedom in the air, and though tyrants may step on our necks we smile, for history has always been on our side, yours is an ummah that simply does not die. I'm sorry for my weakness. For every time I've been ashamed of your name, and as someone to call me more for not knowing enough about you to defend you when they drew cartoons or they drew cartoons again or they drew cartoons again or accuse you at the most heinous of accusations for not getting over my distaste of reading and waiting for

01:14:23--> 01:14:58

Hollywood to put you on the big screen so I can know something about you as if Steven Spielberg or Mel Gibson or Johnny Depp would somehow be able to recreate the twinkle in your eye, or a beautiful bead of sweat as it scaffolds on your forehead frantically fighting gravity not wanting to fall off your body I keep thinking of seeing you. And if you would smile at me. The thought gives me goosebumps. You told me to meet you at the pool. So on that day, I hope and pray that I will see you through the crowd that no angels barricade me as I sprint at breakneck speed I hope you recognize it's me. I will crowd the companions to get access to your vision. I will obey my thirst by

01:14:58--> 01:14:59

quenching it from your hand.

01:15:00--> 01:15:08

So until that day I will pray I will stand and I will pray as if my feet are holding the Earth from splitting if I make it

01:15:10--> 01:15:52

I cry for thought of seeing you. For I know that the words that I used to read from books with all too thin pages will do no justice to your voice and your face and your touch and your sent you see, my messenger of Allah has always existed between the curves and dots of the Arabic alphabet so Mohammed bin Abdullah in 3d, and whatever other dimensions the hereafter brings with, it will be an overboard of senses. I will fall in love with your shadow. I will tell it that his description did not do justice. Until my mother I showed how we heard her story of how you passed away between her chin and her chest over and over and over again. And it made us cry every single time because we

01:15:52--> 01:16:19

never suffered any disaster that was greater than what we suffered before our souls merged with flesh entering an earth that was without you does the sky even recognize us anymore. And I will sit in the shade of your smile. And we'll ask you your story directly from your mouth as we sip Ansel Seville ice cold and we'd be terribly embarrassed if you asked me for mine because I never did anything right

01:16:20--> 01:16:28

other than loving you and then if you let me I would love for a hug.

01:16:30--> 01:16:30

Solo ice

01:16:33--> 01:16:36

so the law who I know he was salam Salam wa

01:16:37--> 01:16:42

salatu salam ala mashallah

01:16:43--> 01:16:44


01:16:45--> 01:16:53

Can you come into the Mohammed bin Abdullah? Because we know that this is too much work, I think? No, I just think there was too much.

01:16:55--> 01:17:10

It was it was powerful. It was it was just, you know, all the all the words that you imagine, and seeing the Prophet SAW was going on was said or that poem, you know, and it's like, it's like, someone's saying to dad,

01:17:11--> 01:17:14

low to barely hurting and I am letting you

01:17:16--> 01:17:20

know, I said to be sitting and someone comes up to me, like, I was lucky. I

01:17:21--> 01:17:26

saw the proper promoted to Ballia we have thing I named a Latino.

01:17:27--> 01:18:02

Of course, the Sahaba saw the problem, and we're gonna let the Sahaba know that we're gonna see him to Inshallah, we got some challenges narration by metadata didn't mess with that discussion, by the way, is something that relates back to the beginning of our discussion, because Myka Dodd, you know, some of the tabulating who didn't see the Prophet cellulitis, and under looking at that Devendra, so then they're saying, Tim, you know, how were you treating the province of allied SLM? If, and they gave him the sense that, oh, if if we had lived, we would have carried him on our shoulders and that the minister had said to them, Why would you?

01:18:03--> 01:18:12

If you ask anybody, our people who are alive in the chat right now, would you right now, if you had the option to live during the time of the sahaba? Would you have chosen yes or no?

01:18:13--> 01:18:26

According to that than it is what why would you? Why would you choose something that Allah subhanaw taala spared you from? You know, that we were we were fighting battles where the person across from it is our own father,

01:18:27--> 01:18:29

our own our own brother difficult?

01:18:30--> 01:18:34

And those who disbelieved in him there in Jannah.

01:18:36--> 01:19:20

I mean, who are these people? I'm not even Hatha believes he's in Jana Omri Mahisha. This believes he's in Johanna, but even Madeira. All of these individuals, they just believe that Rasulullah sallallahu, Salah Nkrumah media, like him, of course, believes his father just believed. I'm living last believe that I suddenly why this father disbelieved. It's so hard to lead, right. And so the the stakes are so high. And they the Sahaba, we talk about what the Sahaba endured at the beginning, like there, they endured incredible, incredible challenges. These are not random people. This is not some sort of non Muslims. These are their cousins, their uncles, their mothers, their brothers,

01:19:20--> 01:19:53

their sisters, their children. These are everybody that they've known their entire lives that they are now against fighting day in and day out. It's incredibly difficult. And so that was saying to them like, be thankful that Allah subhanaw taala placed you at a time where Islam came to you easy word or if you were born into Islam, be incredibly grateful. They'll ask for it just adopt comes back to this notion of the Hikmah of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah chose the Companions you saw but in heavy weights committee DNA, yeah, he says my

01:19:56--> 01:19:58

loved one. You can dream too.

01:20:00--> 01:20:35

Yeah made may have not had the point them in my head and I'm thinking about law and you can wish to be in a place that Allah didn't want you to be in it just Allah had something somebody else written for you and Shama just broke it down. And and I think the prophet would be happy if we're in this time also so we're doing the work of the prophet like you know, NASA Mucuna Mucuna Abadi body you had only loaded or only big women profits or something there's gonna be people that will come after you they will love me more than more parents. They'll love me more than the children. Well it turns out we played two f1 Lucky to end up with this one lucky to have one I can't wait on my brother. So

01:20:35--> 01:21:03

now, like Shama just mentioned a poem we have. We have a lot to tell the Prophet on the day of judgment. And when we speak with the prophet of Krishna so much to listen to the prophet like I have so many parts of the Sierra that I does the inside stories I want to know what happened. So like there's, there's more to this, like, how did you deal with this? And the cave and weren't like the three days in the cave? There's the I'm sure you toggle buckets on secrets that you didn't tell us? You know?

01:21:05--> 01:21:21

You know, so there's, there is some parts of the secret of course the prophet comes live which is so intriguing to me that I want to learn more about on the day of judgment from the property Shut up. When you said something so powerful to also assess and I'll be terribly embarrassed if you ask me. Yeah,

01:21:22--> 01:21:34

it's gonna be like a you imagine like this Hava meeting doesn't happen and this one was bartered and visited. This one was martyred like so what were you guys like? Oh Hamdulillah we beat the Spartans you beat you beat the Romans no no we Michigan State that's

01:21:37--> 01:21:42

that's pretty much your like you know we're there's something you know, we are all of our battles we're

01:21:44--> 01:21:49

gonna be like what? You gotta hide y'all end up here right more or less or how to die that's how we ended up here

01:21:51--> 01:21:56

you know, you know those like you know, these guys I'm BIA legs will be MVR would have Shahada.

01:21:59--> 01:22:31

Like, you know, they see each other for the sake of Allah that's about it. Yeah. Like do those like why would a rich person and you know the rich person you'd ask that question? Like, people don't envy other people like, but when was like an 80 year old or six year old Cesar 18 year old with the same car like, Man, I worked six years for that car. And we just walked out of high school and got that car. So that's our like, bro, I give brotherhood I got these generals. I got these badges. Here you come from United States of America. And wherever you come from in the west and all across the world in sha Allah, and you're sending your but inshallah we'd love each other for the sake of

01:22:31--> 01:22:50

Allah, whatever little that we have Allah maximize it, Allah, we ask Allah to reward us with his generosity, not with our capability that the good that we're doing, you know, Allah reward, all of us. Chicama you will have been excellent. Your work has been so powerful. We always listen to you. And we always look forward to having you

01:22:52--> 01:22:59

before we let them go, especially that point word in the poem where he mentioned something like, until I can ask you for a hug.

01:23:00--> 01:23:37

You know, like, can I see you smile, like, like seeing the problem, smile. I mean, if there was a moment that I would, of course, we just talked about not wishing to be, you know, a lot of the time person because we don't know where we were going to be. But if we had Iman, if I could choose a point where I would want to be in will be on the podium entered into Medina, like just, you know, greeting the Prophet and just hugging him and, you know, seeing the Prophet finally get away from the persecution of Makkah, seeing him smile, like, whenever I mentioned this narration, I always think How fortunate were these companions in the sense that and so in the merlocks is whenever the

01:23:37--> 01:24:12

prophets of salaam were entered into the masjid, no one would raise their heads except for Abu Bakr normally Allah Noma county had the best somoni Lay it the best Simola Hema with the best Simone Ely. And he would strike a smile with them and they would smile back at him. Like, how beautiful would that be? Then on hold, of course that you said that in between everyone. I hope that the angels don't barricade my vision because I want to see you direct and I want to see you smile at me and come to me and I want to come to you and hug you. How fortunate how beautiful will that embrace be on the Prophet Salam hugs us and we see him and we're able to cry on the shoulders. The other sort

01:24:12--> 01:24:39

of love, man, this is what this was because I loved you. You know, I went through this entire struggle, because I wanted this hug. You know, sometimes, after a long day, after a difficult tragedy, you just want a hug of a specific person. That's all you want. You want to hug a specific person, and we'll get the prophet to hug us and we're gonna sell so this is all we wanted. And of course I did love Allah subhanaw taala so I feel like that was a powerful line for me because I think that embrace will truly help us and easily

01:24:40--> 01:24:42

have legs hugs. He likes hugs.

01:24:44--> 01:24:51

Along with that. I'm definitely us COVID So it's hard for me because I'm a hugger. You know, I'm just like, you know,

01:24:52--> 01:24:59

I get the pin. But But I think we can we have the session soon. But you know, the point that I mentioned was focus to the crowd.

01:25:00--> 01:25:33

remembers focus, the focus is bigger, it's not the name on the back of the jersey, it's a name on the front of the jury type of thing. That's the focus Allah, it's not my name. Number two was making sure, just referring back to what you were referring to is you pulled the talent out, you made them focus and you built them up and you took them forward. You know, that quality is completely selfless, I think, when he talked about the Prophet was able to praise people. A lot of times, the reason why we don't praise people is because we think by praising them, we lose something, we don't lose anything, you know, like, because someone else can be more virtuous than mean a specific thing

01:25:33--> 01:25:47

doesn't make me any less. And the person realized that I am who I am, and me praising them will not take away from me, but will give them you know, which I'm gonna stop talking about this, but we get to talk my mouth at this point that, you know, why was it so?

01:25:49--> 01:26:29

You know, this is my first time interacting with the, the famous brothers. And your brother dynamic is so refreshing and so beautiful. May Allah subhanaw taala preserve you all for each other, and your family who raised you on this. But I think this in and of itself might be an interview that we need to do, because when you talk about this generosity and praising a lot of times there's sibling, there's this unspoken, or sometimes it is even a spoken rivalry. Right? So how do you get to a scenario where mashallah, all of you are doing what you're doing. But not only that, like I'm noticing, you know, they you're all calling each other share and being very, very respectful of each

01:26:29--> 01:26:34

other. This in and of itself is incredibly unique. You know, Dr.

01:26:35--> 01:27:03

Dr. Nasir O'Meara have the law as a chef in Saudi Arabia. And one of my machines has told me that he met his father and the chef once. And the thing that struck him the most was that his father was referring to his son as Dr. Nasir they felt like it was just like, it was so unique because normally you're on first name basis. I know you're calling him beige on I'm not really sure what based on means. I think that means older brother means like, beloved older brother, beloved older brother. Okay. I have an older brother.

01:27:04--> 01:27:08

Brothers, I've called him by his name, he doesn't beat us up. So Asha Allah.

01:27:09--> 01:27:21

Do you call Do you have a name for all of your older brothers? Or is it just the oldest that gets that? So pretty much you know, I'm the fourth. So I have Sheikh Abdullah manageable disease. And I have my younger brother, Jacob. moolah.

01:27:23--> 01:27:38

But Jen is dedicated for you all your older brothers. So whenever I was whenever I would have to call and all of them are there. It would be really interesting. Like but yeah, yeah, but when he calls my name by John he says it with the tweets. Exactly. I didn't say what the

01:27:39--> 01:27:44

from the heart from the heart. Okay, it's sincere, which is? Yeah.

01:27:47--> 01:27:52

Okay, something like that. Some of the things that we're talking Okay Come on, man, we love you.

01:27:53--> 01:28:20

I want to ask you a commercial. If you don't mind. We hit some of our guests a little bit about your family how many kids you have and what's going on in your background? So many kids do have you don't mind sharing their names? We just like to get the background my daughter her name is Hurricane hint. She's two years old. hamdulillah mashallah, you knew the hurricane hints? Yeah, she's a category of she's a category three, she got upgraded to category four after she started running. And so right now we're boarding up the windows.

01:28:22--> 01:28:24

I was like, I was like, I don't know. I'm gonna talk about that.

01:28:25--> 01:28:27

Is that an Indian tornado?

01:28:29--> 01:28:30


01:28:32--> 01:28:32


01:28:35--> 01:28:57

Yeah, her name is hint. I wanted to make sure that I My name is Ahmad obviously. And I always had an attachment Tamati when he asked that growing up, and I just I, I felt like naming after Heroes is something that might give that person a little bit of a connection and a little bit of a strength. And so I definitely want to tell him after this harbor.

01:28:59--> 01:29:18

And hint, I figured if she ends up being gentle, then she is on sedima hint on sentimental meaning. And if she ends up being fierce than she is hint with the tuba. The mother of my Oh, yeah. So either way. She's covered in a challah. Tada. So the qualities of both of them.

01:29:20--> 01:29:24

Good character. And how old is she? She's two. I'm the law. So she's

01:29:25--> 01:29:38

category four. dequeue Yeah, we're starting off heavy. I'm not sure if you like my brother, but my brother has a younger daughter. She's almost three. And she hasn't wrapped around his or her. Mom.

01:29:40--> 01:29:41

I'm gone.

01:29:43--> 01:29:47

Because it's funny because it's like, I don't.

01:29:48--> 01:29:52

I tried to keep my private life private, partly because

01:29:55--> 01:30:00

I realized that as a father I'm just so overwhelmingly infatuated with
