00:00:58--> 00:01:27

Alhamdulillah, you've been closely connected with Idris camisa. And you have a little bit of history going back with Idris camisa. Can you give us a little bit of background of that? How did you meet him? And what is your relationship with Idris camisa shukran de la thanks for having me on radio. And I've always I always listen to radio, Islam and 100. And at least call me yesterday from England. And he says,

00:01:29--> 00:02:09

there's an opportunity I won't be in. I won't be in South Africa. Later today, is it possible for you to share your thoughts on radio, Sam, I said, I was inspired, and shukran for calling me and allowing me to share share a little time with you, my brother, how I met but at least it was about a year ago, at the senton Convention Center. At the senton Convention Center. There was a seminar on public speaking. And the seminar was all about how to break your number one fear in public. And when I went to the seminar, I recall, it was during the month of Ramadan, and there was a registration process taking place. And I had this commotion and there's loud noise coming. And this person

00:02:09--> 00:02:26

treating everyone hugging anywhere, everyone and he had this aura, this energy, and all bubbly. And I looked at him and I saw is a Muslim brother. I didn't know where they dress a year ago, I didn't know who he was. And then at that moment, he bumped into me and he greeted me Islam Aleykum.

00:02:28--> 00:03:05

I looked at him and I said Salaam Alaikum. I didn't even know him. And he gave me a big hug. He says as a as a Muslim brother. My first greeting is a hug. And as a Muslim brother, I hug you. I found that warmth, that loving that kindness. And immediately at that moment, I embraced him. And then I noticed he had a big bag. And it was during the month of Ramadan. And as a Muslim brother, I told him, I'm going to spend the I'm going to break Rosa with you tonight. And he says, Why do you say that you don't even know me, I say, I see that big bag that you have I ensure in that bag as a massage is big as the Schedule A follow Doris here, and they laughed. And that's how we first met.

00:03:05--> 00:03:51

And they told me something that moment. He said our meeting is no coincidence. Allah joins people together for reasons. And Alhamdulillah. That was the reason. And after the seminar just before the seminar was over, there were five Muslim brothers. We got together, and we had a meeting. And so if this was our militia, and together we decided how are we going to form a group on all the lessons we learned on public speaking to different Arlene's young how father's students from data rooms, how we can teach them the lessons, we heard them here. And that was just a small little thought of how our journey started. And a few weeks later on calidris call me and it says a telecom in Johannesburg.

00:03:53--> 00:04:31

We set out the task to do we have an important mission. Let's Let's meet and get together and are surprised because you know a lot of times when people call you contact you create opportunities and say we're going to meet nothing materializes. But this was serious. He was focused he says let us make a difference to the oma and we're here to inspire we're to make a difference to the Muslim because there's a lot of people out there who wants to listen to a message and imagine the young fathers and what the lessons that we have learned we can then impart it to them we can educate them, show them how to speak in public and break that fear and 100 law the journey started then and a year

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

now is passed and we're gonna do a talk at the data room shortly with a calidris where we can speak and educate the students who come out to the data room on how to speak on public 400 nights in it's been a blessing and I was grateful to meet privately for that moment that was our first meeting that I'm hungry my sugar is quite interesting was just happening to meet there but is it is by mentioned to you that it is by the will of Allah tala to

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

people meet and it is for a purpose.

00:05:04--> 00:05:48

Just before we go on to the rest of your, your, your programs and, and things like that, that you've been involved with. Idris camisa was just to go a little bit into your background, you've been a cricketer, former South African cricketer, I see. You pay for transfer and you paid for the western province. And you're quite competitive in your days in cricket. Tell us a little bit about that. Yes, I'm the law while I was in, I grew up in Asia, and I'm a homegrown boy. And like all young boys, I had a dream. And this dream, this dream was to play cricket at the time when I was growing up. And, and while while I was growing up, the same was impossible because it was during the

00:05:48--> 00:06:25

apartheid era and the restriction for sportsmen in that time. And while watching, or reading a magazine, I noticed that although I couldn't play for South Africa, and although it's just as a dream, this magazine showed me something about England, I had a feeling I wanted to go to England, but I never know how or how it will ever materialize. And when I went to school, I was an elfa Primary School and then to Nirvana High School. And one high school teaching the sports teacher notice potential me as a cricketer in sugar. One day, we we played in the final, I think it was in standard eight, it was a final of a school game between two different schools, Nirvana and mandai.

00:06:25--> 00:07:02

And we were we were right on the last bowl, I was voting this bowl, and we lost the game. And I was really disappointed. And I was said that, you know, I failed. And I and I and at that moment, you know, when you fail, you just hate cricket, you hate lightweight, everything around you because you're passionate about something. And none of us sometimes will be challenged in life, have that kind of experiences, we hold back, we stop. And I was found, I was out. And a teacher, Mr. Disney live record came to me in a classroom and he called me. And I forced him to shock me because we lost. And I was already for this. And I was down I was out. And he called me in the classroom. And

00:07:02--> 00:07:04

he looked at me in the eye. And I said,

00:07:06--> 00:07:33

I believe in you. I believe in your potential. I believe you can achieve great things in your life. This is just a stumbling block. It's just a lesson. If you grow from this, things can happen to you in your whole life. This lesson this failure is not just an ordinary failure, this failure can change you. But it's time that you forget let go and move on. At that moment, I looked at him.

00:07:34--> 00:07:35

And I just in my eyes.

00:07:38--> 00:07:40

I couldn't believe it. Someone believed in me.

00:07:42--> 00:08:04

He looked at me. And it gave me this energy. From then on. I believed in myself, I believed in my ability. And you know, just to go back to the listeners who are listening. You know, the greatest lesson I learned was that we as parents, we as fathers, brothers, sisters, when we with our children, when we with our brothers, our sisters, our mothers,

00:08:06--> 00:08:52

takes just one word of encouragement, one word from your heart and soul that you care to listen compassionately. And when you do, you can transform that next beam, you can make a difference in his or her life. All it takes is encouragement. So often. So often, we go and we hold back, and we show people we blame them, we accuse them. And we do the ABCs we accuse them, we blame them and we complain. But we don't do the other ABC, we don't take action. We don't believe in them. We don't give them a choice that they've made a decision. And they've learned from their mistakes. So that was a great lesson for me. And Eli went on. At the end of the year, I made the turn of all school

00:08:52--> 00:09:16

sites. And when I was in mitrik, I got caught up in an assembly. And in the assembly, Mr. Bismillah was there and they they awarded me my talents for school and the South African school side for my cricket potential. And this is all because when a teacher believes in you, you start believing in yourself. And when we believe in ourself, we have so much power to unleash our potential. And

00:09:17--> 00:09:58

in the assembly, he called me up and they congratulate me and then he gave me an envelope. And I wonder then he says please open the envelope. And I was like, what is in the envelope? I was nervous. I wasn't sure what to do when I opened the envelope. I noticed a ticket. The school that raise funds in a raffle to send me to England to play cricket and urine opportunity at some at a local community Nirvana at raise funds and that given me this opportunity to go to England Alhamdulillah you know, you believe in yourself and other people believe you and people help you around your opportunities like this come up and Allah subhanaw taala open doors for you and yeah, I

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

was on my way to England.

00:10:00--> 00:10:12

sonicwall Mr. Bismillah Mr. Bhushan lies now late metal guns in general circles and studies coupled with no, because he inspired me. And the lesson that I learned before I went to England was that the people that you meet,

00:10:13--> 00:10:54

can either make a difference in your life, hold you back or make you or break you, who are the people that we are associated with? If they are expecting us, what are we doing to them? are we allowing them to destroy us? Because in life, if we do that, we allow them to overpower us, we allow them to steal our dreams, we allow them to take over. And then we forget what we are here for. And that is to fulfill our purpose that is to worship Allah is to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is to serve, contribute and make a difference. When we are holding ourselves back. And being negative. Can we ever achieve this, it's time for us to step out.

00:10:55--> 00:11:35

It's time for us to unleash our potential. It's time for us to fulfill our purpose in life. And that is how I went to England. And during my journey in England, when I got back, all I had to do was coach mentor people and teach back and give back to the communities in Indonesia. I came back as a coach. And I used to love cricket at the time and enjoying cricket. And being you know, loving cricket I, I came back and I thought, This is life. You know, life is great. And everything I was a cricketer. And I'm everyone know me, I appear in the newspaper. And then the party turned over. And I was the first non white to represent

00:11:37--> 00:12:23

the Transvaal team. And when I went and I played the wonderful Stadium, in front of 50,000 people, I was live on television. And this was in 1991, the apartheid era just turned over. And yellow was with an opportunity to play in front of everyone. My parents believed in me, my friends believed in me. And I thought I was somebody of Allah has a bigger plan for us. As much as I thought I, this was my day, and I was going to succeed. I failed. I learned another great lesson that as much as you plan, allies, the bigger planner, as much as you think you can, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah subhanaw taala does the difference to us, you know, he gives us the he makes the final decision. So as much

00:12:23--> 00:12:29

as we can plan, we can do an underlying thing. But that was the biggest transformation in my life, because I learned that failure.

00:12:30--> 00:13:05

Playing in front of a huge audience, and getting essentially I gave up, I just thought I couldn't, but I stood up. And I believe I still could because the teacher told me as a young boy. And when I went home, you know, my parents loved me. They showed affection, even though I failed. Because sometimes when we fail, it doesn't mean it makes us sad, it makes us losers. And sometimes our children have a bad experience at school. It doesn't mean anything, it's just mean that we have to support them more, and maybe change the techniques, the techniques, the methodology of how we were assisting them.

00:13:08--> 00:13:17

So sorry to interrupt you the question. It's been very interesting listening to your, your whole background and the way you have

00:13:19--> 00:13:55

managed to get into professional cricket to played in England and came back to South Africa and played on a professional level as well. And it's inspirational for us in that we must never ever give up. But coming back to your relationship with diversity is coming to you. You've spent a lot of time with me. So some of your experiences that you shared with him. See, you know, most of them every moment that I met at least was very, very inspirational. I recall that when I pick him up at the airport, I pick him up wherever we go into and we travel around. So every time he comes to Johannesburg, he reaches out and

00:13:57--> 00:14:38

I have some time available and I'm fairly flexible. So we traveled together and had a call one particular incident that was truly transformational in my life and realizing what am calidris does. And I was surprised I knew in those days, but I never know the work he does. And what he does in his private capacity while I was with him on the phone in the car, I noticed that he had about you know, in a space of an hour we had about seven six to seven calls. And all from from the brothers all around South Africa with relationship challenges with some challenges they have in their life, especially relationship problems. And he has this he has his way in healing people listening

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

compassionately, and and overcoming the challenge what people truly experience. And I remember we went to a meeting and the meeting was from 3pm till about mother's time it was in men's and during the meeting, meeting they were like knocks on the door every time and knock on the door and then someone would come in and

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

Recently he excused himself, and then go with a couple and they kicked into a room, spend 20 minutes with him. And then, you know, listen to what their challenges are, and then heal them, empower them with tools, that they can change their life, how they can affect their life, and the whatever challenges they are going. And he did one thing he showed that he cared, he showed love, he showed compassion. And, and when they left, you know, there was something about them that had a different aura, they felt healed, and he hugged them and showed so much compassion, these people are not people that he knows, these people are no one that that that that is FX method like before they just

00:15:39--> 00:16:18

call him at the moment, and he picks up the phone. And they listen to these people. And he transforms the lives and and when we leave at the end of the day, just before we went live together and cry to Allah subhanaw taala. You see Allah, our brothers and sisters are suffering Yala, heal them. Yellow, we are here for purpose, y'all. Let me say the right words, so that I can inspire them, I can change them. And I can make a difference to you Yala. And he cries for people that you don't even know. And he makes to offer himself to not you must make dua for the people in every opportunity. We have to help we have to heal. We are here for a purpose. We are here for you to

00:16:18--> 00:17:03

worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and follow all these commandments. Secondly, we are here to follow the Sunnah. Thirdly, the creation of Allah subhanaw taala, this is a year, we are here to serve, we are here to make a difference. We are here to help them. We are here to just show love and always be inspired, be be happy, so that someone that comes and see your face, maybe that's that could be a form of healing for them. And it's also true that we were in this meeting, we created a workshop of I just have one life is how individuals can take control of their own life, find their purpose in life, how they can become more productive, how individuals can change anything. And I creating this

00:17:03--> 00:17:43

program, it's a life changing seminar sometime in the end of May, the 2020 23rd of may for probably being be known as the hall at night, on the 24th of May is doing a similar event on how people and the challenges they are having.

So this program was created, how to empower Muslim woman Muslim people how they can transform their lives and unleash the potential and overcome the pain. And in second underlays just created the image Mr. Lackey notices we need to do more. And we've created a program on the 20th of

00:17:43--> 00:18:27

And those were one day experiences. What I noticed around him is for my

00:18:27--> 00:18:52

personal experiences, I know when I met him telophase I had all this energy, I had so much to do, I wanted to do so much. And during our journey the one day he chatted to me and he and he looked me in the eye and he said you have to let you have all these ideas you want to do so much. You want to make such a big difference. You want to make a difference to the world. But the difference don't come in the world. It comes in our community. It doesn't come in our families it first come with us. Change.

00:18:54--> 00:19:39

Embrace yourself, accept who you are, know what you're here for. And then serve and when you serve others, allow us serve you and I had all this ideas and actions and you have so many ideas. Just focus on one thing. Be present at that moment. Like if you're going to be willing to read namaz focus on your Salah. Focus on the moment that we go to the Salah, when you walk into the masjid, your thoughts, your actions, your feelings, your body, your ears, everything must be being focused on Allah subhanaw taala this chosen us to do that. And also when you're in a relationship or you with people with your wife or your family, look at them with compassion be their present, how often

00:19:39--> 00:19:54

is it that even though we are there with people, we are not there. And those were the lessons that he taught me that transformed a lot of my way of thinking and shukr Allah subhanaw taala put him into my life. And I know he's feeling a lot more other brothers on radio.

certain events before 12 Welcome back to Al Masri country this time international and to our guest this morning. Abdullah Hartman at salaam aleikum and I'll come back to you while economic gains inspiring speaking to your brother into like most even for your time.

00:24:01--> 00:24:06

We were speaking about the diversities Cammisa and you spoke about your cricketing history as well

00:24:08--> 00:24:53

as challenges in life. And we've all been through those they are high points, low points that we go through in our lives. And explain to us give us some inspiration that you took from the challenges that you've been through in your life. I've been for many challenges. And when you speak of challenges, there was a point in my life, which I was at my lowest lowest point in my life. And I recall it was four years ago. I was in Cape Town. At the time it was in December. And being a cricket fan. It was December time and I was with my friends watching cricket. I think South Africa were playing India at the time. And I had left my family at home where they were just at home and

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

you know, I didn't even you know, to be honest and have to be honest and true to myself. I was I was more conscious

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

About my happiness, I was more concerned about what I need to do. And I didn't care at that time for what my family's needs were, whether it was a holiday where they should spend time with them. And I went towards Cape Town, my friend says, Come on, we gotta go. And I went and I watched cricket and I was having a great time. And you know, Allah subhanaw taala. Always, you know, he puts us through some kind of challenge in life. That that although we think everything is okay, and when you when you go into that step where you where you forget about your deen you forget about what's happening around you, you go into, into a motion, where you just think about the ocean basically, and you just

00:25:39--> 00:26:13

enjoying yourself and you're enjoying your life and you're having a good time. You eating out you with your friends, you're laughing, you're joking, and you're playing watching cricket. I somehow came on, I think I'm gonna choose the Thursday, the second day of a test match the Methodist ministers on the Wednesday in the holidays, and a secondary testimony started raining. And during the rain while it was raining a friend, a friend said, Let's go to the beach. Let's go have some fun and swim and things. Like I said, Listen, I want to watch cricket. I'm passionate about cricket. And we had an argument at that moment besides deciding going to the beach and watching cricket. that

00:26:13--> 00:26:48

argument led to such a big argument that he accused me a lot of things and we fought. And I broke up with my friend who was my closest closest friend at that time. And we had, we had one of those big fights and I and I went home and I went to the hotel and he started shouting me. And in the end, it was really ugly. And I just thought no more. I don't want people to tell me how I should live my life. You know, I'm, we I should be able to be with my family now. And I was really disappointed in myself. Because I fought with him. We broke off. We broke up all business deals, all ties, and also the lowest point of my life because I was alone

00:26:49--> 00:27:33

in a family wage and, and I was in Cape Town. And I was so disappointed. I went to lionshead that's in Cape Town in the mountains. And I sit there. And those gentlemen, he looked at me and he saw me looking down and out. And he says how are you and this is only me alone. And when you're in that zone where when nothing messes. We just give up. Our estate guy just gave up on life. I gave up on everything. nothing mattered to me. If, if that was the last moment in my life, it didn't matter. I didn't even care. But somehow, there is always something that happens. And every moment, a little dog who was limping, walked right as I was looking down walk right beneath, beneath me limping under

00:27:33--> 00:27:52

my eyeline. And he just passed me. And I noticed this dog limping, but I didn't take notes of it. And then I heard a master of the dogs that come up the hill, come and join me up the mountain and run with me. And as a result of them being on the mountain, and going up this mountain, I thought, wow.

00:27:54--> 00:28:05

I've got a broken leg. But he's listening to his master is listening to the person that has brought him into his life. And she everything that his master said no matter what challenges is happening

00:28:07--> 00:28:49

to the mountain in the top of the mountain. And something was calling me to come up with mountain for something was there. And you know, you have that moment that something is gonna happen and you don't know what it is. And I was so inspired, that I somehow found some kind of energy in me and I said, you know, I'm gonna beat the dog. I'm gonna go fast up that mountain in that dog. But you know, when you have problems when you have issues, everything is slow. took me four hours to climb up a mountain, which usually takes 30 minutes, because that's how I was dragging along so tired. I came right to the top of the mountain. And for the first time, I just looked up and I noticed

And you have found some kind of motivation in you that your life is going to be better have the family are so used to.

And I went for fetcher and hamdulillah from then I started reading the mask continuously. And suddenly perkara come into my life. And things are changing in my life. And through that you meet others, like a lot of other Muslim brothers and I went to, you know, go to places now like the eastern mind where we can inspire people. And now my vision has changed from thinking about me when I had that ego when I had that attitude when I thought I was somebody actually we nobody

And you know, so often we have a lot of nudges in life as as listeners may feel, a lot of times get nudged. We get told we have to do this, we get told to change. If I didn't listen to that dog. If I didn't go up that mountain. If I didn't take action, you have to step into it. All of us are holding back. We stop we hold back will lie. If you take that effort, Allah will come running to you. If you open your arms, say so much opportunities of abundance and nice waiting for us. It's time for us to step up. You know,

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

Thank you, brother.

00:38:23--> 00:38:26

We have been having an interesting chat thus far.

00:38:28--> 00:39:16

character and intention. This is the thing that we've been learning from the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu and Islam about character when the Sahaba so su de la sala de Islam, that what is the key to Jana and Nevis Allah Maha Islam said two things, very simple one is taqwa. That is the ever consciousness of Allah subhanaw taala. And second, is a personal soul. That is the good character. good character is one of the keys to janma. And definitely in our in our daily lives, we see the effects of good character, we see the effects of bad character, as well. And then together with that intention, why we do our whatever we do and what is our motivation behind doing that, that affects

00:39:16--> 00:39:27

the quality of what we do is when as the effect that it has on people and on ourselves as well. So character and intention How important is that in our lives practically?

00:39:29--> 00:39:59

Brother that is critical. You know, an individual's character is one of the most important aspects of life and yes, you're right good character is the key to gender. I want to be more or less alone. It was even said also the best person amongst my alma is a person with good character. You know, honestly, while acts of worship on great significance in Islam, Islam is a way of life. Everything in the Muslims life, including his manners, his behavior, his personality, should be in line with Islam.

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

You know, the proper Islamic values and traits are extremely important. Not to mention its relevance, you know, in our daily lives of Muslims, even though they are unfortunately neglected, sometimes I believe that character, character is the fundamental aspect in our life. Whatever we do, wherever we go, we will be judged, judging our character. How did we do that? When we read numbers, how did we read numbers? when we when we in our relationship with our family, how are we taught our wives? How are we? When we in business? What kind of transactions are we making? How truthful are we honest? Are we genuine? What? How are we acting? Everything

00:40:52--> 00:41:05

is based on our character. 90 look at character, and you step down, you know if we have the right character, and we think we have the right character, we then ask ourself a question, every act, what do we do?

00:41:07--> 00:41:13

intention? What is our intention, doing that act? When we set out every morning when we wake up,

00:41:15--> 00:41:23

we have a choice. We can wake up a feature, or we can sleep. When we are here, when we hear that we can decide what to do.

00:41:24--> 00:41:25

Our choice.

00:41:26--> 00:41:45

Allah subhanaw taala has given us this magnificent gift of choice. Every one of us have a choice. I believe that for example, and if you look at an example and you say Rosie, and Melinda and you will be aware with this, this Rosie's given to us at a certain day that certain parts already correct policy that

00:41:46--> 00:42:27

Allah subhanaw taala says that, you know, in his interest and delaurentis, we're going to get 2020 at the end of the day, no matter what happens. Well, a nice, we will get the 2000 words Correct, yes. Now, when it comes to intention, when we set out to work every day, and we know yet we don't know. But Allah subhanaw taala knows because he knows he's a magnificent, he's the most merciful, gracious. He's the only Prince he's a we have every little detail. And he knows that at the end of the day, we're going to get into 1000 when we still aren't aware of it. So we set up nowaday for business. And we will have two choices to make that day. The first is a choice of a challenge, the

00:42:27--> 00:42:34

choice of shaytan he will come to us and Yes, come to someone will come to us in a brilliant deal, and offer us

00:42:35--> 00:42:40

how we can make 2000 reigns that day. And we have a choice, when we know

00:42:41--> 00:43:25

what we've learned because the last panel also given us knowledge, internet, it through knowledge, we learn what is right what is wrong, what is halau what is wrong, what is pure, what is impure? What is what is not, and what is truthful and what is not truthful. And if that transaction is being is not truthful, we have a choice, that first choice cittern will persuade us he will push us he will he will talk to us in the voice from inside saying yes you can is a quick deal. He'll put it in such a beautiful way like fragrance that we will be enchanted by it. And yes, we make the choice. There is our Rosie gone. And yes we have earn 2000 pounds, but that brother that holds back and say

00:43:25--> 00:44:14

no to shaytan knows that he trusts Allah, Allah in my character I have learned and I have known what is right what is wrong. And my intention is to please you, that whatever I do, I asked myself one question before I asked one of my Allah be happy with me. One might Allah be truly happy with me? And if your answer is yes or no, if it no and the first you carry on, and you keep working honestly truthfully, at the end of the day, Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala has written their 2000 words for you in a long way. And somehow, someone will call you and you will get that was the choice of intention is ours. Our character is based on what we decide. No one else choose that Allah

00:44:14--> 00:44:56

subhanaw taala has given us the knowledge, the intellect, and the heart and emotion to decide we can decide what we want. But sometimes we hold back, we get into this quick deal and we think it's the right way and left in the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the best person a moment minds a person with good character. And you are so right. Good character is the key to gender. We have got all the treasures of how to intergender how we utilizing it My beloved brothers and sisters. Allah subhanaw taala has made it so easy for us. He's given us two choices. And we have to make that decision. And if we make all the right decisions, when we meet Allah subhanaw taala on the

00:44:56--> 00:44:58

last day at our last breath

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

And they asked to say nine nine Lola

00:45:03--> 00:45:21

could say the kalama easily. If we have, it will come easy to set up through brother from a from a Islamic point of view, GG. Before we go on to that we have a caller on the line. Let's take the chorus level alikum walaikum Salam Coronavirus,

00:45:22--> 00:46:09

brother the brothers in Abdullah genius? Yes, it's given a very encouraging report Alhamdulillah I think if more sisters and brothers can come on a or they can write it out any can be read, then it will be very effective. What we'll say is that you know, I think generally we Indian Muslims are so reserved people that it is a divorce or something, you know that that is depressing or something that will go in a shell and in the lobby, what will the people say? The people can say what they want is your life, you've got to love it. And you've got enjoyed because Allah Allah created you in the best form. And to show you appreciation, he worship Allah tala and you carry on in life, imagine

00:46:09--> 00:46:13

a dog that is also creation of Allah, Allah that open

00:46:15--> 00:46:47

mind, his eyes, his mind Alhamdulillah and inshallah so much can be achieved. You know, if we can have small workshops in our home, also, you know, with our children, then the children have confidence, you do go off the track, but then Allah, Allah thinks of the track, perhaps, so that he brings you back. There's a reason for it. I always say this fear in everything. And there was a fear. When he was alone, he was with his creator. And on top of the mountain, he could, he could think carefully and see everything around him created by law.

00:46:51--> 00:46:52

I would like to have a few minutes remaining.
