salatu salam ala rasulillah
Peace and blessings beyond the last messenger of Allah.
Allah Subhana Allah
has told us in the Quran to take Satan as our enemy, in the shape on Allah kumada, one Fatah.
Certainly Satan is your open enemy, so take him as your enemy.
Unfortunately, Muslims today have not heeded that warning. And we have ended up in many cases, taking Satan as our friend. We have invited him into our homes and given him every opportunity to create confusion, create corruption
in our homes, and lead ourselves and our children, our families astray.
The home is the basis from which
any Muslim society can exist. It is a basis for the individual is the basis for the society as a whole. And it is essential that that home be properly guarded, properly protected from the tricks
and the traps of Satan.
Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had instructed us that whenever we enter a home,
we should call on a law saying Allahumma inni iluka hire a knowledge worker and mockridge Maharaj
we ask a lot to give us the good
that is there for us in entering our homes, that we bring in with us good and that we find the good witches within our homes.
And when we leave, we take good out with us. And that we seek the good which is in the society around us.
We say Bismillah he will Arjuna or Bismillah hiragana to Allah Allahu Akbar been to Canada.
And in the name of a law, we enter and then the name of a law we leave. And on a law or in a law we put our trust. Because after seeking refuge in a law
for the good, that is in our homes, or to take in good with us. We then have to put our trust in a law because
no matter what we do,
ultimately, it is a law who can protect us. All of the different means that we seek to protect ourselves will only be effective if a law permits them to be effective. And
it is ultimately a law in whom we should all trust when we enter the home. As in the end of that had these problems as lm said we should greet our families. And this is based on the verse in Surah nor verse 61, in which Allah said further the hulten Bhutan facente mala and fusi come to here 10 min en de la de Mubarak and Mubarak eaten by Eva. When you enter houses salute each other with a blessed and excellent greeting from Allah.
This is a last instruction that we give greetings of peace to each other after saying Bismillah ck putting our trust in Allah when we enter the home, we give greetings to those who are in the home.
In a statement from problems I sell them, He also stated Yamuna altana Alec for Selim jackalberry yakun Barak Baraka, 10 alayka wala antibiotic, my son when you enter your family, upon your family in your home, read them. It is a blessing for you and for your family. You're invoking at the time of doing this. We are invoking a loss blessing on ourselves and on our family. And abrasca sanlam had instructed us to spread the blessings of peace around we should not hesitate in greeting each other greeting those around us. So especially in public
To our homes. When we say when we say salam alikoum this, in fact is a da. You know, we're asking that a law, bring peace into this circumstance into the home and on those who are within the family
and problems, I send them and said, there are three groups of people who will have a guarantee from Allah, the Exalted, the sublime.
The third group is a man who greets his family when he enters his home.
The first was one who fights in the way of a law
and the second was one who goes to the masjid.
But the third in importance here is one who gives alarms upon entering the home. So very, very important for us, you know, to to begin the whole process of entering our homes, establishing our relationship in our homes with salons.
Bismillah calling on Allah for his help and giving salons in the home. And in the home. There are a number of things that we do regularly among them is eating and drinking, having meals three times or more in a day. And problems our Salah told us
that if a man remembers the law while entering his house, and while eating, Satan says there is neither shelter nor supper for you.
Lamb Mbit Allah kumala Asha.
On the other hand, if he enters without remembering a law, Satan says, You have found shelter. And if he does not remember a law while eating, Satan says, You have found both shelter and supper.
So this is advice to us. Again, with regards to something which is very common in our lives, that is eating, waiting so many times that we remember to say Bismillah, when we're eating, if we forget, you know, we say Bismillah Allahu Akbar.
This is also a reminder for ourselves, see, because when it whenever we consider these various drivers, we should not treat them as
ritual statements that have no real meaning we just quote them before we do different things. And in terms of reflection on the meetings, we don't have any reflection there, it is just an act that we do. It's like an automatic act. You know,
this is not the way that they do our benefits us into our applications of the prophets, I seldom benefit us when we reflect on them.
So when we say Bismillah, we're saying Bismillah in the name of a law.
With regards to what we are doing, we're thanking you notice by the power of a law that we're able to eat this meal, and we're able to take benefits from it. Because there are people around us who we know, due to their sicknesses or illnesses they're not able to eat, they are fed through tubes, etc, etc.
And at the same time,
we also reflect on the food that we're eating
is this food which we have obtained through halala means
is this food we have obtained through halaal means
do we feel proud to say Bismillah over the food we're eating, because if it is not halal food, then we have to consider that this is not something for us to be proud about.
In fact, what we are doing is bringing a curse of a law upon ourselves a curse whereby our prayers will not be answered.
And we will have built ourselves and our bodies etc without um
so this is also a reminder to us that we
make sure that what we're eating is from halaal.
If we go into the home of somebody who works in a bank, or whose earnings are from Haram, we know it will we feel proud to say Bismillah before eating their food. No.
We should feel shy. Because this is haram food. And this should this the fact that we should say Bismillah is enough to stop us to say, you know brother, sister, I'm sorry, we cannot eat. I cannot eat at your place because your food is.
So this Mila has a place it has a meaning
Should have an effect in terms of how we earn our living, how we deal with our relatives and our friends.
Also among the things that we do on a regular basis is we go to the bathroom
how many times a day do we go to the bathroom
and again profit mamas s&m has given us do our to say allow my kidney out to become an alpha booty welcome is all I seek refuge in You from filth and evil Jin's male and female.
Again seeking protection from a lot on one hand because of the nature of the bathroom being a place of filth is a place where the evil jinn may focus.
A person who was not guarding himself or herself may be affected in the bathroom, and using the bathroom again, these are times of weaknesses, physically physical weakness, which affects psychologically ourselves and leaves us open to possible harm.
So problems are seldom has given us this piece of guidance to protect us on a daily basis. Now
having entered into our homes,
having remember the law and eating, when using the bathrooms, we have to also
purify our homes
from the satanic things,
whether they be
physical things in the home, or things which affect our psyche, psyche, we have to purify our homes from the various means by which Satan affects people. Among them is music.
Allah says in the plan
and so on this raw verse 64
what steps is minister Tata mean? Whom basaltic with regards to Satan, and fool those whom you can among them with your seductive voice
Mujahid the student of Edna bass That said, the voice of Satan referred to in this verse is singing.
And Prophet Muhammad SAW Solomon said and Sahil Hari, some people from among my followers will drink alcohol, but call it by a different name, stringed and wind instruments will be played for them. And women singers will perform for them, along with cause the ground to swallow them and you will turn them into apes and pigs.
In another narration, found in Sahil mojari
there will be people from my nation will claim that adultery silk alcohol stringed instruments are lawful.
This is telling us
of the dangers of music and the things which accompanied the lightness or that said music and singing. cultivates hypocrisy in the heart, just as water cultivates plants.
the whole society is or functions on a
musical plane. You enter the stores, there's music, you enter the elevators of apartment buildings, there's music, there's music everywhere.
At least we should try to establish a sanctuary, a place for ourselves that is music free.
And that is the whole
we have a statement from Butera in which equals profit loss I send them a saying Algeciras ms Mazar, mira shaytaan bells are the musical instruments of Satan.
And another narration. He said, angels do not accompany travelers who have a dog or a bell with them.
Bells which today have become very common. It's on our telephones. It's in our in our clocks and other Bell which is from Christian culture, from Christian tradition, which is ultimately from Satan because Prophet Isa Ali Salaam did not teach his followers to
ring bells. This is something which they invented. And obviously, it came from Satan. It's satanic. And it is, as I said, because it is the basis of their religion, their call to prayer is the bell, this
mismarked mizmor of Satan, musical instrument of Satan. It is also throughout the society to built into the culture. So it's among the things that we have to be careful to purify our homes, wherever we can, as much as we can. We need to get the bells out of our homes. And what do we do?
We should replace this music, the bells, the the voice of Satan, replace this in our homes with the Quran.
We have so many instructions from profit mom's asylum, in which he said that we should recite the Quran in our homes. We have
statements from the processor limit which he said everything has an apex and the apex of the Quran is Soren bacala. Certainly when Satan hears Rebecca being read, he leaves the home when it is recited.
He also said, Don't make your home's like graveyards For indeed, Satan does not enter a home where in Surah Al Baqarah is read.
So this is something we should take a note of how many of us regularly recite Surah Baqarah in our homes. But this is what performance SLM has offered us. This is these are authentic IDs,
which we should be aware of, if we really are serious about protecting our homes. Now some of you might say swashbucklers Islam, two and a half Jews. I mean, how do I read this every day in the home? Well, maybe you as an individual may not have the time every morning or whatever, but
your wife can recite, your children can recite. You know, it doesn't mean you have to sit down and do the whole recitation of everything all at one time.
But you should try to read the story in your home even if you divided up into parts and read it over every five days or whatever you read a portion you know read it regularly. But besides that we also have in Sahil Suna Timothy.
An easier little easier formula for us in which clubs are sentiment said when the last two verses of soil are read in a home for three consecutive nights, the devil will not come near it.
The last two verses of Surah Baqarah. Read on three consecutive nights, the devil will not come near it. So we have if we can handle through albatros a hole we have at least the last two verses that we could recite regularly.
We also have along with it.
recommendation of the prophet SAW Selim to make Vicar in our homes.
We have a hadith in which this process and unsaid whoever says lie in a hula hula de Cana noble mukono. unharmed bawana coalition Oh dear, that is there is no God but Allah was alone with our partner, the dominion and praise are his and he's able to do all things. One who says this 100 times per day will have a reward similar to freeing 10 slaves 100 good deeds will be recorded for him and 100 sins erased, and he will have a charm against Satan for the whole day until the night. No one can do better than that. Except one who does more does it more often. This is how do you found in both sigh Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. This is something which again, is not that difficult for us to
After prayers utilize this formula of Vicar, which allows us lm gave us you know, and unfortunately so many of us get caught up in seeking other forms other forms of Vicar, which were not assigned by the putnams asylum. So we ended up doing all kinds of prescriptions except the ones which are really beneficial to us. Because really, no one can come along and tell us do this so many times. I do that so many times and it's gonna do this for you and do that for you. If Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam didn't say it, then no one else has the authority to prescribe these things for us. So we need to go and learn from the promises some of those things which will benefit us and recitation of Quran. In
our homes throughout America in particular, as well as Vicar, especially the liquor which has been prescribed with the problems I sell them. It does protect our homes from the satanic forces.
Now, in the recitation of class,
Again, just as in the case of the dryers, we have to keep in mind last month Allah told us the Brunello Quran, Allah
Akbar Allah, will they not reflect on the Quran?
Or are their hearts locked up? Will they not reflect on the crime. So they're so the recitation of Surah Al Baqarah, or the last two restaurants or ruchira, or any other chapters from the Quran that we recite in our home, we should do that with reflection, we should not race through it so fast, we can hardly make out the words of anybody else or listening to us because a lot of us also work for an authority law, that we should recite the Quran in slow measured tones. This is the way that we recite the Quran. And this is the way in which it is going to benefit us. And the law also told us and soil for con mahalo Rasool Allah be in Nepal, me
for Annie Matura hardcore Anna Matura.
That the prophet SAW Selim will say on the Day of Judgment, Oh my Lord, indeed, these people have taken this on
have deserted the squad or have abandoned the squad. This is one of the statements across us and I will say about some of his oma, let us not be amongst those who are pointed out in this way.
It is also known from the hadith of Abu Seidel
that with the recitation of Quran,
do come into the home, they come into the environment around the people are reciting the Quran. Because there was a particular incident which happened, in which he said that he had began to recite the Quran and was doing so his horse became jumpy, and almost trampled his son.
And when he went over to see what was the cause
he found there was something like a canopy over his head with lights in it and when he came near it moved up into the heavens away from him when he was slated this two problems asylum process element said those were angels listening to you, if you had continued, the people would have seen them in the morning, and they would not have concealed themselves from them. Of course, this was in the time of asylum angels at different points became visible. I mean, in our times, perhaps we don't necessarily expect that but the fact of the angels coming around those who are reciting the Quran, remembering a law this has been confirmed in a number of other Hadees from Russell Lhasa Salaam.
We also have problems as element said before going to sleep.
That one who recites ayatul kursi completely will have a protector from him from a law against the devil until the morning so this is something regularly before we go to sleep at night we should recite I do foresee and even SLM has given us drive to make if during our sleep we have troubled sleep wake up in a state of fear or you know had some kind of nightmare or we're you know in a state of frenzy or whatever, or disturbed from sauce Allah told us to say in a hadith found inside,
out we can imagine light, mighty men rather be quiet kabhi washer a body woman hamasaki shall clean the room.
Seek refuge in the words of a law is complete words from his anger, his punishment, the evil of his slaves, and from the proceedings of Satan and from there being present. So problems are solved them is not left in our home. Circumstances wherein we are we don't have a means of protecting ourselves. We have the Quran we have to ask etc. Performance SLM also purified his home from crosses is authentically narrated in Bukhari, the prophet SAW Selim never left anything in his home that had a cross on it without obliterating it. This was his practice, that wherever the symbol ascends up in the home, this should be obliterated. You may find it on the packages of the things we're buying in
the society around us because the cross is part of their society is part of their culture, part of their belief. So the cross will be worked into many many different goods etc.
We're going to purchase outside and we're bringing these things into our home. It was a practice of the prophets of Salaam to purify the home by obliterating all of the symbols of the cross. And also, he removed pictures from the home pictures and statues. These were not supposed to be in the home problems that Solomon said angels do not enter homes were in their statues and pictures. And on one occasion I mentioned I bought a pillow that had a picture on it, when the prophet SAW Selim, so it remained the doorway and did not enter. I asked him or messenger of ally repent, to align His Messenger, what did I do wrong? He said, What is this pillow? She said, I bought it for us to sit on
recliner. SLM said surely the makers of these pictures will be punished on the Day of Resurrection, and it will be said to them give life to what you have created. Then he said, Indeed, angels do not enter the homes in which there are pictures are very, very important for us to purify the home, clear it out, clear out the pictures etc. Of course, these pictures do not include pictures of inanimate things of trees, mountains, you know, buildings, these type of pictures are not included in this prohibition as was explained by the Sahaba. And also we are required to remove from our home dogs. Again, dogs the process element said angels do not enter any home when there's a dog or a
And dogs again in this society are taken as the best friend of human beings people bring them into their homes, they live with them, they go to sleep with them, they buy clothing for them, you know, the dogs are treated even better than other human beings.
Of course, Muslims don't necessarily degrade the dog. We use them in places where it's necessary for hunting for, you know, protecting our homes, etc. But we don't take them in as a replacement for family members.
Because it's very common amongst non Muslims especially when the kids grew up, etc. that the dog replaces the children you know, so they they turn the dog like into a child.
Also, we are encouraged to pray in our homes, bathrooms, I send them and said do not make your homes that graveyards make your optional prayers in your homes. He had further said
oh people pray in your homes for certainly a person's best prayers are those that are offered in the home except the prescribed prayers. That is the best prayers for us to make outside of the prescribed prayers. The Sunnah prayers are is to do them in our homes. You know, normally we're doing them in the masjid, you know we do it in a very ritualistic kind of fashion. You know, you come in the mustard you do two before two after four before whatever you know, and that's your package that you come in a package deal you do no matter what every time you come. But we forget our homes, problems or sell them told us that those are the prayers that we want to do in the masjid,
you know, as a quick formula that we knock off when we come inside the masjid. These should really be done in the homes that are best done in the homes most acceptable to Allah, most pleasing to Allah to do them in our homes, when we come in the masjid to Raka before sitting down, these are not the two before right. But there are two before sitting down and the master told us that if any of you went to the masjid, that you should not sit down until you have done to rocket write this instruction. Otherwise, the sooner prayers we should try to do them in the home and even inside the prayer itself.
Before we recite Surah Al Fatiha process Allah taught us to say how the Billahi min ash shaytaan manaphy when a fee or hanzi that is I seek refuge in Allah from Satan, from his pride
and his poetry and his Dutch poetry being the music, the song which is commonly in the society around us. This is the authentic draw, which is supposed to be said before
saying the fact that people commonly say all the blemishes on the regime, but actually if you go back into the narrations of the Hadees you will not find that specifically mentioned or do you find authentically rated as this one in science in Santa Navidad is that he always used to add to it, seeking refuge you know in shaytaan from the pride poetry and touch of Satan.
And problems are seldom and also taught us that during our prayers many times we find ourselves confused in our recitations. You know, we lose track of where we are we forget what
rocker we're on, you know, this kind of confusion that tends to come in on us many times in our prayers
when osmani in Alaska had mentioned this to problems or sell him, he said that is a particular devil known as Hands up,
right this category of shale teen or evil gins you know interfere in our prayers. And the process elements said whenever this happens, we should seek refuge in a law from it and blow over our left shoulder three times.
When we find this in the Salah, find this then we seek refuge in a law without the dilemma shaytaan regime and then we blow over our left shoulder three times, blowing it to sort of is called nuff which is sort of between blowing and spitting, spitting and not quite blowing you say like this right? So you say do that over your left shoulder and you do this in Salah how many people practices you know, how many times have you ever seen anybody do this, but this is something clearly prescribed by performance excellence, but all the all the time people will complain about, you know, confusion in prayer, forgetfulness, etc, etc. And we have this instruction from the problem of
asylum, and we don't make use of it.
Following that, in order to further protect our homes, we know that the family the family structure should be one of love and compassion as the law said.
homie nyati and Holla Holla comin and fusi comas Raja Lita, schooner, la ha rajala banda commoditised Rama in the radical ayat in Nepal mania de facto room.
And among His Signs is that he created for you spouses so that you may find in them tranquility and he placed love and compassion between you certainly in this assigns for those who ponder and that is the foundation of the family structure, the relationship between the husband and the wife and the children. It should be one of love, compassion, tranquility, peace. You know, unfortunately, in many of our homes, there is little love. There's little compassion, and there's little peace. And this is one of the ways by which shavon you know, creates confusion in the Muslim family by destroying the relationship of love and compassion. We have a statement narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah in which he
said that problems are seldom said, Indeed, a blease
places his throne on water and then calls his agents. The most dear to him is the one who causes the most trouble. One of the devil comes and says, I did not leave him human beings, until I cause a split between him and his wife, at least draws closer to him and says, You have done well.
This is a narration from
a Muslim, that this is one of the ways in which you know shavon is very pleased this is what he promotes. In the family, the breakdown of love. And problems are seldom had said that when people get angry in one particular in a particular instance, where you saw a man who became so angry, his face became red he said,
in in Kalimantan,
lo por la La Habra and who Allah
la mina shaytani r rajim. Indeed, I know some words, which would cause his anger to subside if he said them, I seek refuge in a in a law from Satan, they are cursed.
When we find ourselves getting angry,
husbands and wives, angry with our children,
angry with each other, then as far as us and them said, we should seek refuge in a law from Satan. Because it is in times of anger, that we ended up saying things or doing things that we later regret.
It also instructed us
at the time of marriage, that we seek refuge in a law from the evil that may come about from the marriage itself. He had said
that when a person gets married, he should say, oh, a lot Indeed, I asked you for the good, which is with her, and the good which you have created as an innate part of her character. And I seek refuge in You from the evil which is within her and the evil that you created as an innate part of her character.
And bathrooms. Our cell limit also instructed us to seek refuge in a law from Satan to protect our children. Even at the time of having relations, sexual relations with our wives. He taught us to say Bismillahi Allahumma genda shaytaan. Agenda misshapen maratona.
And he's promised that if one says this that is in the name of a law or law, keep Satan away from us, and keep Satan away from whatever you have bestowed on us, or you will bestow on us. Then, if a child is conceived Satan will not harm the child.
along with that, he also encouraged us whenever a child is born, to recite the land in the air of the child
raffia had said I saw as messenger, so I saw them make the land in the air of Hussain Ali when Fatima gave birth to him.
And this hadith is
authentic. In the opinion of the majority of the scholars, though some scholars have questioned its authenticity.
And we're also enjoined to seek refuge or protection for our love for our children from Satan. He advised that we should wipe the head of our children and make this application or Isa comb be Kalamata la Tama min Kula shaytaan in wahama, woman pullian in Nam, I seek roughage for you. With the last perfect words from every evil devil, poisonous animal, and evil I
saw Selim said your forefather Abraham used to seek refuge for both his smile and his hop using the supplication
a variety of formula which prompts us and them has given us it is our responsibility to learn them and to use them for our benefit. And this way, we protect our homes
from the satanic forces that are around the whole satanic forces which may enter the home.
This is prophetic guidance. Either we believe in a law and we believe that Muhammad wa sallam was a messenger of a law. And we take what they have given us and use it, or we neglect it. And in neglecting it, we're actually indicating that we haven't truly believed in a law, nor have we really accepted Mohammed Salim as the Messenger of Allah. Now there is another factor and that in terms of protecting our home, and that is in the education of our children, that within the home, we have to educate them. Our wives should be educated, you know, primarily educated
in the knowledge of the deen as possible Salam instructed us that seeking knowledge is compulsory, and every Muslim fundamentalist Islamic knowledge, the D in the knowledge of the D necessary to, for your wife, for yourself, for your children to go through a day, doing what is pleasing to Allah, that much knowledge needs to be there, we need to have it ourselves, our wives need to have it and our children need to have it. So we need to create an environment in the home, where there is that basic knowledge of what is pleasing to Allah in our relationship with each other in whatever we do within the hole. And that is reinforced by schools, Islamic schools, that if we are to try to
establish this foundation in our homes, and then after that our children go out and go into non Muslim schools and Kaffir schools in the non Muslim society, then the vast majority of what we give them in the home will be erased, it will be erased and will be replaced by corruption.
So one of the ways in which we protect our homes from Satan is especially in this society is by establishing Islamic schools. And an Islamic school is not just necessarily a school in which people learn Quran and Hadees. But they will learn the knowledge which is necessary for them to survive in this society along with it academic knowledge, but it is not merely a school of Muslim children, wherein the teachers are there because they couldn't find work elsewhere.
And the children are there because they had become so much of a problem in the hands of the parents. You know, they had nothing else to do what to throw them in these Muslim schools. You know, this is not the Muslims
The true Muslim school is one in which the teachers are dedicated. They realize that this role of teaching is a bother. They have a job a mission to fulfill.
And the children that are going in the schools are children whose parents supported, they're not throwing them as a last minute last resort effort. No, they have been laying that foundation of Islam in the in the homes and they want that foundation reinforced in the school. So there is real, you know, interaction between parents, children and teachers, and you then create an Islamic environment in the school, which further reinforces what we're giving in the home. So the process of protecting the home.
It involves also doing things outside of the home, which will help to protect the whole.
And part of that protection for the family
is living in a Muslim neighborhood. Again, if we buy a home someplace,
our neighbors all around us and disbelievers, non Muslims,
their children, they're involved in all kinds of things. And our children, we cannot lock them in the homes and say you cannot interact with the children around you. So they will interact with their neighbors. And when they go into the neighbor's home, all of the things that you've been trying to keep out of your home that children become bombarded with.
Your wife is influenced by the women around her.
yourself, you're influenced by the society around you. This is what makes it also in order to protect the home imperative that Muslims create Islamic communities. It's not enough just to live by yourself Little House on the Prairie Islam, you know, where you're just you know, all by yourself and you know, it's a beautiful, wonderful little home, it doesn't exist, that home in the midst of a cashless society will be destroyed by the society around it. The Muslim should have Muslim neighbors. In this way you also protect yourself, your dean, the Dean of your children, the Dean of your wives, etc. This is this is essential, and this is why problems are solved. Ahmed said, Latin
Patreon Hendra attacked and Katya Toba that hedra will remain obligatory
as long as Toba is accepted. Without an archer Toba had the horrible chumps in Bulgaria. And Toba will continue to be accepted until the sun rises in the West. That means until the last day, these are marks the signs of the last day hedra remains an obligation on the community hedra to create Muslim communities.
It's difficult, it requires sacrifice,
really, but other societies have done it. There's Chinatown.
These people have gotten together on the basis of the fact that they're Chinese Don't we have something greater than that?
Isn't the man greater than being, you know, Chinese or Pakistani or Egyptian or whatever.
We have a man. And that should be the basis under which we create communities to protect our homes.
So let us not delude ourselves into thinking that protection of the home stops with your front door. protection of the home involves establishing Muslim communities with Muslim schools, Muslim environment, etc. The Muslim, the clinic
we insist on our wives that they cover themselves properly with proper hijab. And then when the time comes, they get pregnant they have to be examined.
You know, these examinations, very private examinations we tell them to go. Here's a doctor and now you have to expose yourself
the time of giving birth, this is what they're exposed. Our women are obliged to go into every circumstances which are clearly Haram.
Imagine if Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim was amongst us. And we are there sending our women into these circumstances, how embarrassed how bad we would feel
right now we don't feel bad about it because everybody else is doing it. You know, this is the nature when you're involved in corruption.
Then you become numb to it. It doesn't have that kind of effect on you anymore.
Maybe when you first migrated here from Pakistan or Somalia or whatever, you are shocked.
But after you've been here, two years, four years, you know, everybody else is doing it, it just becomes a common thing you know, then you no longer think about it anymore. But it is a great evil.
It's a part of protecting the whole, you know, protecting the chastity.
chastity, the modesty of our women is that we must have Muslim clinics,
this is part of it.
And unless we have that, then we all carry the sin
of exposing our women in these circumstances, as we carry the sin of our children who deviate in the Catholic schools, we all carry this in, because we have not established alternatives, proper alternatives, we have not really sacrificed and worked to, to find an alternative to it. Instead, we have just gone along with the flow. Everybody else is doing it. Who can do it, we find all kinds of excuses. And the end result is that shape on is our best friend shaytaan has become my best friend in our homes, etc. The television, which so many of our homes we have we sit in front of it for hours on end, bombarded with corruption. This is what this television is. It is 99.99% corruption.
There is a point 00 1% which you could say okay, there's some good points here. But 99.99% is corruption. Temptation. You say okay, I'm only gonna watch the news. But you know, flipping the channel, do you see? So what's that, you know, next thing, you know, you're watching it.
I mean, these people have specialized and trying to catch our attention. The Satanic forces are active,
and the best for most of us. If we cannot control if we are not able to, to really only see on that television, what is pleasing to Allah, if we can't do that, then get rid of the television. That's the bottom line really get rid of the television. Because it's music. I mean, even when you listen to the news, they can't give you the news as it is they have to give you music along with it.
You know, I mean, even the, you know, the most simplest or you could say the most clean of the programs, it's loaded with music. So, where do you end up? Where do you end up? I mean, these are amongst the challenges which which which we're faced with here.
We want to protect our homes, then it means we're going to have to sacrifice some of those things that right now we find so enjoyable.
We have to learn what prophet Salaam has taught us of the
supplications the tickers etc, we have to learn these things and utilize them and reflect on them. recite the Quran regularly in our homes and reflect on it. And believe me, if we are doing that regularly in our homes,
we will not have time for the television. For the other things, the corrupt elements that have entered into our homes today, we will not have time for it.
And that's the bottom line. By therefore after fansub when we find spare time, turn it into worship of Allah doing what is pleasing to Allah. So including brothers and sisters, and due to the fact that we have a fundraising situation in front of us. We will leave the questions
for this presentation to after Martin inshallah, and I just want to say as a concluding point that we have the correct way of life. Islam is the best way of life we have it. It is there for us it is pure, we can find it. It is only for us to take it and to utilize it. If we do it. We benefit in both this life and the next. If we don't, then we are destroyed in both this life and the next and the home is the basis of the Muslim family. Let us protect our homes from the trees and the traps of Satan. with water loss My dad has given us the process lm has advised us
You mentioned in your footwear that angels would not enter
the homes of Muslims unless all statues and pictures of animate objects are removed. What is Islamic ruling of governing photographs not displayed But Captain an album? Well,
for those scholars or scholars who hold that photographs are considered to be a part of picture making.
So they include it with drawings, paintings, and everything else. For those scholars who hold that and those who have listened to their opinions and, and believe this to be the case, then it doesn't make any difference whether they're in albums, or whether they're on display, you know, that they shouldn't be in the home period.
For those who hold and there are other scholars who hold that photographs are not considered a part of the picture making process that the picture making sphere is limited to drawings, paintings, carvings, these type of things.
Though, for those those who follow that opinion, the scholars generally speaking who prefer to take that position, hold that as long as it's not put up on display, because putting up on display would still call 2000 or two
to honoring or giving special status to you know, images that this is islamically not like to be considered mukou or disliked or bordering on haram This will include well you know, pictures of the rulers of different countries and things like this where it you know, becomes a fetish or people even you know, use this in terms of their shares, for example, shamanism, you know, he gives his followers as Nazim is
well known Naqshbandi was a
branch in in the states kabbani, his his His representative is halifa. You know they, he gives the followers photographs, and they're told to to focus on his photographs and his image in their prayers and this type of thing, you know, you have others that promote the same thing. So if it is put in albums and kept away, on the basis of that opinion, it would be okay. You know, but putting it out on display, basically, it would be considered not acceptable islamically to hang it on the walls to blow them up, you know, to put them out, calling people's attention to it and giving it special status.
Is it permissible to have a picture of people performing Salah in Mecca? If yes,
because it doesn't show their faces are the pictures that don't show the details of the face? Only the silhouette of the person permissible. Now where the details are not worked out where it's blurred or something like this, you know, it is inshallah there's nothing wrong with it.
Even if it is actually a photograph again, this again difference between those who hold photographs to be heard and considered part of the sphere and those who do not. But once it's blurred In any case, there the image is no longer a clear image, then inshallah it should be okay. What about pictures showing the khobar Musk's picture the same thing
Okay, this is a long question which is not very clear please comment on protecting our families from shaytaan when living in extended family households with
I guess husband wife kids mother in law's father in law's
there's no difference the principles Islamic principles governing the home and protecting the home are the same whether you're in an extended circumstance family circumstance or whether you're not.
And rasa Salim said that Dena nasiha ha the religion is good advice. So, you know where advice has to be given or needs to be given it should be given
is it only is
that Satan did not touch at birth.
The Satan touch the prophet SAW Selim at birth. Well, according to the statement of the problem was our solemn
No, it is only his and his mother, who are not touched at birth
80% of Muslims in Toronto want to community Why aren't our leaders making this a priority? Or is it not important, of course, it's very important.
Why aren't leaders making it a priority, I don't really know.
It's really on Muslims, if the community wanted, then they need to put pressure on the leaders of the community to make the necessary steps for it to be done. But in any case, you know, this is something the idea of, of developing community, I mean, it doesn't have to depend on a leader, you know, or two leaders or some leaders, if enough people see the need and and, and then realize the, the harem state of being in this fragmented type of
situation, then they try to find others who have the same way of thinking, and they try to establish something, you know, announce it to the rest of the community, inform people encourage people and you know, and then some people have to make a start, you know, a lot of times these type of things.
People jump on the bandwagon, bandwagon, as they say, you know, once there's some sort of effort has been made, and some sort of success is being achieved, then you find more and more people come on, you know, usually it started by only a few people. You know,
please give an advice to the Muslim leaders here about establishment of Islamic school? Well, I mean, I think the issue of Islamic school has been expressed in the presentation I already made, amended is something which the community in Toronto has not given enough concern about, because the few schools that have been set up, are not enough to cover anywhere near the number of Muslim children that are here in Toronto. So there really does need to be a heightened awareness amongst the community for the need to set up Islamic schools. And I hope inshallah, we won't wait, you know, until there is serious damage, you know,
that the community then starts to wake up and try to put their kids in Muslim schools, there are there is there's a generation of people who came over here, you know, from Syria, and, and Palestine. And, you know, from back in the 30s, and 40s. And these people, virtually most of them have disappeared, they set up little centers in different parts of Canada and the United States. But today, you know, their children are gone, you know, they're not Islam is no longer there. You know, I mean, Islam can be wiped out in a generation.
And this is what we'll be faced with if we don't take the necessary steps to establish Islamic institutions of learning. And let us not be fooled, because a lot of people put their kids in school. And I was saying, Well, you know, school, the knowledge in school mathematics, all this stuff is neutral, you know, it's neutral. They're just, they're just learning the necessary academics to get on with their life, I'm helping them at home, we have a Sunday school or we have a weekend school or whatever. The reality is that education is defined by a number of education, this as the method by which a civilization passes on its values to the next generation. This is
by way, the way by which a civilization passes on its values to the next generation. So yes, though, the teacher is telling you one plus one is to the way the teacher dresses, what the teacher is encouraging the child encouraging the children to do the images in the classroom, the whole environment of the school, that is the whole generation. So yes, though, the teacher is telling you one plus one is to the way the teacher dresses, what the teacher is encouraging the children encouraging the children to do the images in the classroom, the whole environment of the school. That is the whole way of thinking of Western civilization. So all your child is learning one plus
one is two, all that other stuff, they're also learning, you know, and then we wonder in a way when the children you know, reach 13 and 14
You know, all of a sudden they're rebelling, you know, the girls want to take off their job, but you know, if they were wearing a job, and the boys want to be, you know, looking like you know everybody else, and staying out from home, joining gangs, and all these other kinds of things, getting involved in drugs and all these type of things.
I mean, what we have to do is consider what happened in Somalia,
the Christian Tao in Somalia, went on for many years.
The missionaries went into Somalia. And they made a massive effort to try to convert Somalis, but did they succeed?
Did they manage to convert anybody in Somalia to Christianity? I think they said that is one family, they managed someplace somewhere, they managed to convert one family, you know, you know, after decades of effort and money and everything,
they failed miserably.
But when they brought Somalis to England, to America, to Canada, how many Somalis now have become Christians?
they've succeeded here, where they couldn't succeed there. Why?
Because of the culture because of this environment, a Muslim brought into this environment, he has no or she has no foundation, no root, no base to fall back on. So that rug is pulled out from under them, then it's very easy to get at them. So they have succeeded here where they failed elsewhere.
So, I mean, the need for school is something which the community has to keep up the leadership, keep, you know, bringing this up, stressing it, pushing for it, because really, the leadership's the leadership of the community
acts according to ultimately according to the desire of the community itself. You know, you get the leaders that you deserve.
Are all kinds of music haram where do we fit in the hadith of Ayesha when she and some friends were dancing and that while they weren't dancing, please and I will back up wanted to stop them. And the browser suddenly told him to carry on they weren't dancing, they were you know, singing some songs right these are girls under the age of puberty right girls or boys singing in a girl singing under the age of puberty, it's okay in the presence males or females can hear it. But for women, it because puberty is the dividing line between a girl and a woman
those over puberty for women to sing were over puberty. The only one people who can listen to them are either their Muharram or other women,
males who are over puberty either group may listen to them, because a special mention was made of singing girls you know as mentioned in the Hadith from Buhari etc, that people Muslims in the future, you know, part of signs of the last day they would adopt these you know, singing girls as part of their acceptable culture etc.
Then if girls or men or young boys are singing songs, with whose contents are Haram, then it will also be harassed.
Or if the singing is accompanied by musical instruments, you know, then again, it will be haram because the only acceptable instrument that may be used to accompany singing is the Duff, in which the profit models are seldom sanctioned, and encourage the use of doing marriages etc, etc.
Can you please elaborate on wind instruments, according to quantum solar wind instruments means all instruments which produce sound by way of the wind, you know, by blowing, like, saxophone, flute, you know, and anything that imitates that sound because it's possible to create the sound of the saxophone of the flute. Now, electronically, you know, with the synthesizers, it's possible to create
hear that sound? And it is also Haram. I mean, you can't say, Well, I'm not using a wind wind instrument, I'm doing it electronically No, if the end result is the same, because what is forbidden is not so much the instrument itself, but the sound which comes out of the instrument. So if you produce that sound through some other means it is also Haram.
People seem to be really tied up in this music thing here, right? What kind of music is halaal? rap Indian? What about use of Islam songs? Are they halaal? The words of songs are good
phrasing a law, but it's accompanied by it with music. Is it good? No.
The point is, as as a basic principle that I mentioned,
of one not being accompanied by musical instruments, it doesn't matter. I mean, if you're reciting Quran,
and you, you know, put it to musical beats, and you add, you know, because, unfortunately, there were Muslims. I remember, when I came into Islam here in Toronto, in a way back in 72. There were Muslims in America, who had put out albums where they were reciting Surah Rahman, and they had you know, big jazz band going in the background.
You know, this was a, this was happening, and there are people doing it till now, you know, but the point is that this is haram is this Haram, the fact that what you are, you know, saying, or what is being sung is halau doesn't know, justify the use of any kind of background.
Is it only Prophet Solomon, who had power over the gins and the shaytans? Is there any other prophet who had control over them? Well, as far as we know, it was only profit today, man. This is mentioned in today's performance asylum, you know, when he was making Salah, and
this companion saw him reach out in the saliva, like he was grabbing someone something. And he had they asked him about it afterwards. And he said that there was you know, and evil Jin shaytaan that came to Minnesota and tried to break a Salah. So he had reached out and grabbed it, you know, pushed it off him. And he had thought to try to subdue it and tie it to the masjid so everybody could see it in the morning. But then he remembered the dwarf Prophet Solomon, which was that Allah give him a monk aka Dominion which he would not give to anyone after him, and he did not.
Is it true that Prophet Jesus was the only prophet that did not commit a sin? Well, I don't know that
and why his birth was so different. And also his work example healing
the sick and raising the dead. Well, his birth was just a part and parcel of the
creation of Allah subhanaw taala of human beings in different forms in different ways. He created Adam, without a father and mother, he created Eve, without a mother, and he created everybody else he created with a father and mother. That's just the completion of the different modes by which Allah has created human beings.
It doesn't elevate them or remove them from the status of human beings.
What should a Muslim brother do when one of the family members is corrupt and brings them objects or brings haram objects into the home and affects your heart and we can sit?
Well, they should instruct that family member not to bring those things in the home they should try to stop it.
If they're in a position of authority and process and I'm sad man Rahman Khan, Quran God, whoever amongst you sees an evil should change with his with his hands. When let Mr. terra firma listen and if he's unable then he prohibited
by speaking out against it. And if he's not able to do even that, then at least he hates it, or she hates it in her heart.
I'm a student who, okay before we go into students who?
interest Okay, this is not really on the topic and see if there anything else in principle?
Is it permissible to say a surah? Or if before meals other than Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim?
Well, I suppose it's possible. But I mean, why would one want to do that when the prophet SAW Selim said to say, Bismillah? You know, is the point is that, why should we want to look for things other than what the prophet SAW Selim gave us? You know, this is the thing, as always surprises me. Now, people will always be coming to me with these, you know, can we do these things? Or can we do that? This one said, if we said your scene 30 times in the morning and 30 times in the evening, we'll get this and we get that? Do you know what the prophets I send them said about, you know, soil model? COVID? He said, Well, well, they didn't know what's it? Well, that's where you start, you know,
start with all of the things if you just had to study all of the different instructions with the profit and loss, and I'm told us about the different sources of all the different drawers and so on. So you would have more than enough to occupy, you know, why do we have to go away beyond that into finding things which, you know, people are telling you, where did this person get it from? Oh, he dreamt some ship came and told him in a dream that if you do this, you know, I mean, why, why, you know, let's stick with the Quran and the Sunnah, you know, it's about sauce. And I'm told us, you know, to bite on to it with our molar teeth, you know?
Is it permissible to say, Dr. supplications, you mentioned in any language, other than Arabic, English, for example, once native language, you know, General supplications, you know, just calling on a law, of course, you call an ally in your own language, if you want to, of course, if you're making laws, which are seldom prescribed, then it's better to you should do it in Arabic, this is how he taught it. But you should do it with understanding, as I said, not just learn to parrot the words, you don't have any understanding, but you understand it, and you say it in accordance with the understanding, but just general,
you know, like, after Salah, you know, it's the custom, you know, in some areas, some places, the amount will turn around, and he starts to make a set of drawers in Arabic. And everybody after him will be just saying, I mean, I mean, I mean, I mean, I mean, like this, right, they don't know what in the world is saying, but it's just I mean, I mean, of course, this is pointless. This is pointless. And I was not from the Sunnah anyway. Right? And it is pointless, because, you know, the last application has to come from the heart. I mean, how can it be coming from the heart if you don't even know what people are saying? And it's, I mean, we have to use our heads, you know, Islam
is not a religion, without reason to do it. You know, this is, this is why when we start to practice Islam in this fashion, where it is just a ritual, a set of rituals, this is what leads our children, for example, as they mature, and they start to question things to reject the Islam that we are offering them, because it has no rhyme or reason to it. It's just a set of rituals. We don't we only the reason why we do it is because our forefathers did it. You know, this is not Islam. And Islam is a way of life, which has meaning and has sense has value value which we appreciate when we are able to understand and apply and this is how we should be living.
Is it permissible for women to pray besides men?
In a separating in the absence of a screen or partition or, or a full section?
Well, remember the masjid of Prophet Muhammad SAW Salaam How was it?
Right in the browser? salams Masjid, was there any screen? Was there any partition? No. The front part of the masjid the men prayed the back part of the master, the woman prayed.
That's how it was.
A good Muslim wife was doing her best to keep her home from Satan. And the husband is not practicing the way of Allah. Is it better that she'd be patient or live separate?
it depends on what one means by the husband is not practicing the way of Allah. If the husband has become a disbeliever then it is haram for her to
Remain married to him.
If it is, if his not practicing the way of a law is less than that meaning is negligent, he's lazy, in no uncertain Islamic requirements, etc, then she tried to be patient with him,
advise him try to get others to advise him try to get him, you know, try to use whatever is there a means to try to build his faith to help him
if he is
if his negligence is leading to her inability to practice Islam, like for example, he doesn't pray or he does, he prays only on occasion, and then he is not allowing her to pray regularly or not are, you know, affecting the children not, you know, allowing the children for example, to cover, for example, you know, he is he has a negligent kind of attitude. So he doesn't care about his job, you know, he doesn't want her to wear hijab, or he's not allowing her to let the children wear hijab, you know, then when it reaches a point where his negligence reaches a point where it is threatening her Edina, the Dean of our children, then it is necessary for her to separate for the sake of Allah.
Because another question on this one.
Can you tell us more about working in the bank and how it is going to be haram? Well, you know, working in the bank,
is haram because the bank is fundamentally, we got a couple of other questions that is fundamentally based on Riba based on interest, you know, and
it means then, that
a person working there in whatever capacity they work, there will be in harem.
And our person may say, Well, listen, you know, I'm just the sweeper, I only sweep the floor. And I'm only a guard, I have a uniform, I stand by the door, you know, or I'm only a computer operator, I only work the computer I'm at the point is that if we think of the bank, replace the bank with a brewery.
A brewery, you know, when they make alcohol? What do you think about sweeping the floors in a brewery?
Would you think that's justified? What do you think if you are a guard for a brewery? Do you think it would be justified?
Because the brewery is fundamentally Haram
is fundamentally Haram. And there is no difference in that sense between the brewery and the bank.
So a person who works in the bank in any capacity, his earnings is going to be hard.
I'm a student who wants to attend the college but I can't cover the expenses without getting a loan. Will you please give a brief explanation how this can affect?
don't know about how this can affect but
getting a loan which means paying interest is haram.
the thing is that
we cannot justify, you know, under the heading of necessity, right because the term in Arabic dura
dura, in the Sharia means whatever a circumstance whatever circumstance will lead to the loss of life or limb. Right, the loss of life or limb, you lose arm, you die. You know,
he'd become deathly sick and aware your your existence is threatened. This is a circumstance of Aurora taken from the verse which spoke about the forbidden things to us after which in our law said, you know, if you eat, you know, if you're forced, right in that circumstance to eat pig, whatever, to stay alive, then it's permissible, you know, in that circumstance, and only to the degree that is necessary to stay alive. Now, can we say that taking this loan falls under that category? Can we say that taking out a mortgage on a home falls in that category
is not justifiable.
How do you know shaytaan is in your house or family, among your family members?
if any of the things which we spoke about in the lecture, no exists in the whole, then you know that shaytan is active there.
If we're talking about you know, shaytaan actually possessing people in this kind of thing, you know, it will become evident if people start to change their habits radically, it does start to speak in other voices, you know, I mean, this, these are among the signs.
we don't need to be just worrying about shaytaan being in one of our family members or touching one, if not what we need to do is just focus on doing the things which the prophet SAW Selim instructed us to do, we do that to the best of our ability, we put our trust in Allah and we just keep on going forward, if we suffer, if we you know, fall under the influence, satanic influences, etc, then we use the cures and the methods of profit loss on them gave us different drugs to say over the people who are sick use things, you know, that the process and and prescribed, like, you know, the water of mushrooms is found and soluble Hari, you know, he said for people who have are affected by the evil
eye line, they use this water, drink it whatever, to as a cure for the day I read about these things. No, I did a book called The Exorcist tradition in Islam, which deals with the history of it the concepts, comparative study, and cures and treatments, the method of the prophet SAW Selim, etc. You know, perhaps if you want to get into it more detail, you can read about it there. My parents are Christian. So the house is filled wall to wall with crosses and images of Jesus and Mary, can I still make salad in the house without removing all of these objects? Because I can't, I can't tell them I'm Muslim. I need them financially. Well,
if one in one's room, you know, where you are you praying your room with you know, which is free from the crosses and the images, it's okay. And if one finds oneself in a circumstance where this is the only place to pray, not a place you're able to pray, you know, it is conceivable sometime
in someplace if you're traveling you find yourself in a situation where the only place you can get inside to praise the church. I know it's snow outside, you can pray in the snow or whatever. You know, that if you prayed in that location, I mean out of a need there there was nothing else available that the prayer is still acceptable. I mean, you're not praying to the
to Jesus or whatever.
In terms of needing your parents financially.
If it is a situation where you can't exist on your own, you know, you're young or whatever, then it is understandable that you want to hide your Islam from them you can do so until you're able to you know be independent
if I work in a hotel as a housekeeper cleaning rooms picking up beer and alcohol bottles, is it haram for me to work there? Well, no. The hotel is different from the bank and the brewery because the hotel is not fundamentally Haram. I mean, if people go into the hotel and maybe drink some alcohol or maybe they find a kid committed adultery or whatever, that doesn't make the hotel itself haram because the building the concept of having a place where people can stay when they're traveling and so on. So this is how they act that they're involved in there is haram.
So if you're a cleaner in the place,
then you would not be considered in a
in a haram situation. If you are working in the bar if they have a bar in there. You know if you got a job if you're going to work in the bar where you're going to be serving alcohol then that of course becomes haram
Are we all woman and I want to be committed to my religion. I want to become a
What should I do I feel I'm too old.
I feel I am too old to go to Islamic school.
Well, people become five, you know, memorizes of the Quran without going to
Islamic school. I mean, meaning, I guess a person here means like a school for memorization of grand.
it is possible to work out some kind of program outside of an Islamic school whereby one memorizes the Quran
Please give us some advice in regards to depression. What should one do if one is depressed? is a big problem in this society, a lot of Muslim brothers and sisters are experiencing it.
Well, in the case of depression, one has to look and see what is the cause?
No, there's not a pill magic cure for depression, per se. Want us to look at the cause?
You know, if the cause is from being here in the society with the corruption, all the different things around, then the cure is Hydra.
That's the cure the cure is Hendra get out
if it has to do with success and failure, you know, because you came here thinking that life would be so rosy and wonderful, you know, back home in your country, that people went to Canada, they seem to all be doing well. And you came and you didn't find things so good. You know, you can't hardly get a job, you're living on welfare or whatever. Then you have to analyze you know why you came here? And what you came here for? Was it really pleasing to Allah? It's better to go back to home country be amongst the Muslims and you know, brothers and sisters, etc, family and survive on you know, a smaller amount. You know, maybe you didn't get a piece of the pie in the Canadian pie,
right? Maple Leaf bio Maple is fine. But
no, it's better that you save your dean, then acquire
pieces of the dunya and lose it.
Is it the laws promise that men who commit adultery will marry a woman who commits adultery? Well, it's not, it's not a promise, meaning that if you commit adultery, Allah is gonna make you marry somebody who also committed adultery mean that she when you marry your wife, she's gonna go out and commit adultery. This is not how the verse goes, right? It's just saying that, that for a person who commits adultery,
the community should not give their daughters to him, unless there is another amongst them who is also committed adultery means that is what he deserves. Or she if she commits fornication, actually fornication, adultery, they should be killed the current Islamic law. So you know, fornication, you know, that. If you know somebody is a known fornicator, you know, a person was not a virgin who comes and wants to marry a doctor, then you don't offer your doctor to this individual no matter what if he's a doctor or a lawyer, you know, or an Indian chief, right? You don't give your daughter to him. Because the dean is what is most important, if he is corrupt, then it doesn't matter what
degrees and position he has in society. It is haram for you to give your daughter such a person.
One girl found out that the man she was to marry committed adultery, he told her, she never did
that sin and refuse to marry him. Correct. Now, what she did was wrong. No, she was correct. Was he wrong to tell her? No, he should have told her Also, many men do this sin. How is the good girl going to make sure that the man never committed the sin? While she asks. She has doubts. She asks. And if he hides it from her, then you know that is beyond she's done what she could. That is beyond there actually shouldn't even be up to her to ask. The family should find out she shouldn't be put in a position of having to ask
if a father is a non Muslim,
but part of anarchy tab, would he be able to be a volley to his Muslim daughter? No.
Cannot be the guardian of a Muslim sister No.
Guardian meaning one who
gives away a woman for marriage and two as the final okay of her marrying or not marrying? Actually, I think we better stop on these questions. You know.
I say we don't need to write in any more questions we have enough to try to take care of I think we're just gonna have to
close things down.
