concerts where you have a community in a given area where people have moved in,
then the development of an institution within that area becomes 100 times easier than it that it is
100 times easier, because the people of that area will be willing to make the kind of sacrifices necessary to establish an institution, which become a service to the community, because

I mean, when a person for example,
if a person is called to make a sacrifice, he reflects back immediately.
The Bible this
has evolved from the industry area prayed together and regulated separately together. Such a community where you can have an individual to make a sacrifice, he was dealing with an adult, that if I die awkward or whatever, the community will look after my family
to make the kind of sacrifices which you cannot do with anyone.
one of the things that we find in the society is that for young people, there is a need for entertainment,
most attractive in society.
On one hand, we tell young people, you shouldn't be in there because what is happening in there.
there should be in the community, a center where young people can come and socialize and
talk about a future all along the side of town. Gentlemen, get together you're willing to get together.
But there are social activities for them

For example, a gay liberation is to say, you know, my life according to the laws, so you're going to defend him.
According to the law, what is it definitely probably the same
in terms of our practice.
And from my own experience, in North American context, where the
recent IRS entered into the system,
we have found that it has made a difference

Personally, I could express that they provided for me a form of security
due to the fact that a
contract was put up on me by the

us provide for me around security, whereby I was able to give lectures, on a large scale basis, which have in the audience, a number of people something
that's the size of the kind of security, they're able to provide

safety or the success of our business. And then we put our trust in a lot. We don't just jump off a cliff and expect them all.
I will say from my own experience here,
and that is friends of many in America. So we have seen that Muslims entering into the various institutions of the society have been able to benefit the most

We are bribed, I feel that we are obliged in some way, shape or form, to admit to these institutions and use them for benefits for the benefit of the community as a whole.
