We thank our last panel tala for three
favors that he has bestowed upon us today.
First allows panatela Mater's to be present in the month of Ramadan. hamdulillah and allows father may made us of those who observe the fast during the month of Ramadan. Number two, today is Friday. And then evisa salam said, Hey Rio means Talat v shams, yo mo jomar. The base day on which the sun rises is the day of Juma that's a second blessing. Third blessing is the blessing of rain. The rasnov allows founder, we sometimes not too happy when it rains, but we know that rain is a great blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we have three blessings today, blessing of rain, the blessing of Juma and the blessing of Ramadan. Those are just three blessings that we may not even
think about which Allah has given to us. Imagine we should think about all the other blessings which Allah was fine with Allah given to us and that is why I said
the other evening that
then Ibiza Sallam said that no one will enter Paradise. By His deeds, nobody will be able to say Allah, I wait for Hajj every year so many times I might hide, or Amara or Salah gave I built so many massages, for so many millions in charity. So I am you are duty bound to end make me antigen. So the Sahaba sathyaraj surah Allah if nobody's going to enter Jannah by his deeds, by his good deeds, what about you? So hon Allah, you that sacrifice your whole life for the sake of deed? You are the most Beloved of Allah, you stood at night in salah and your feet got swollen? Would you not into paradise by your deeds? prophecy? Not even I not even I with all that I've done for Islam? Even I will not my
deeds will not take me into jungle.
It looks like bad news, isn't it? I mean, really, if the professor said of his deeds is not enough to take him to Jannah What about us? suparna law. But why is it so why can't our deeds not take us agenda? I mean, there's so many good people, I mean, so many earlier last year, they fasted for 40 years. And some students Allah never slept and some leaders and some did that. Yet none of them will enter Paradise by the deeds. Why not? Because we can never thank Allah repay Allah enough for the favors which he bestowed upon us. And I've given example of the example of site, the blessing of being able to see how many salons Can you make to allow us to thank Allah to repay Allah for having
made you a person who can see or walk or think, or eat or drink, you know, many people can drink milk, people can eat, many people can go to the toilet. So all these virtues and graces and benefits of hydrilla, which allows for horizontal ahead given to us.
I've entitled, The best thing to do in the month of Ramadan.
The best thing that you can do in the month of Ramadan.
And I received an email concerning this topic by my daughter and I say to this I must share with my congregation and Charla on Friday. And I hope you'll be as inspired as I was with this email which he sent me. It's an email, I think the www dot i think it's e Islam. Maybe you can go look it up.
I have changed some of the contents of the story
and some of Hadith and some of the Quran but basically the story remains the story which I received. And again, as I said, the topics name is the best that you can do in the month of Ramadan. Because obviously, all of us try to do our best in the month of Ramadan. We seek things that we want to do. Some of us love to read the Quran. Others love to give charity
Others come early to the jumaan in Ramadan. We think well it's you know, it's Ramadan, you have to come early. Some of us make more Salah in the masjid and so forth and so on. But what is the best thing we can do?
we know that
nahi Sallam said that in this month foot Abu Abu Jana well wholecut Abu Abu
wasafi that is shouting in this month, the doors of Japanese open
the doors of Jam Jam is closed and the shahryar three are all tied up. So it's a month of January also a month in which allows for Hello, Tyler, Xena beautifies the agenda
for the inhabitants of gentlemen. So we are lost on the giving Charla that we will be of those who will enjoy the great
blessing of allowed to be in general.
revolves around a chef
who was in conversation with these students
at the end of Siobhan
not yet Ramadan, Chef was sitting with these students.
And they will obviously going to talk about the month of Ramadan
and only introduce this narrative, this reflection on Ramadan by the chef
by quoting a hadith narrated by Abu Musab al Sharif. radi Allahu Allahu Allah.
The Prophet sallahu wa sallam said,
Allah coonley Muslim in sadaqa.
Now visa Salam said every Muslim must give sadaqa every single Muslim must give setup.
it was asked here Rasulullah ora ATIA in lamea did. Nobody was asked now what about if a person is so poor, he's got nothing to give away.
What about him? Now visa Salam said yamalube de Fanfan nafsa who profited, you should find some work.
Make charity upon himself
and give charity to others. So what is the director of Nagisa salam to find something to do?
Call arietinum Yes, Tata. Then it was asked Yara Salalah and the man isn't able to work is disabled he can't work. Con and money. Color. You ain't know the hedge until Maloof. Bobby said he saw the car will be that he must have somebody who is in need of anything. Maybe to have lift something maybe to help push something, any help that he can give to anybody
that he said.
And then it will say to the Nafisa salami, Rasul Allah, and if we can't do that, he can't help anybody. Kala neurobiol maruf I will save then he said that I will be to say good words to people to order good things to people to inspire people with good things.
Then it was said, Yasser Allah what is the man knows nothing. He can't tell anybody anything. He's too shy. He can't speak. Nafisa Sallam said file you can shop for in Hello, Sara Nafisa Salam said, Vinnie sadaqa, is just to stay away from evil. That is, he said, so hon Allah. So we can see that every single person in Islam is enjoying the pond to give to give sadaqa
Now, with that introduction,
we introduced the narrative of today, what is the best thing to do in the month of Ramadan? The chef is sitting with these students
and sipping tea, not Ramadan. Siobhan, she was drinking some, some rooibos tea, which he likes and
they discussing the month of Ramadan
and the students is once urine says to the teacher
Yeah, you know, we put a lot of things to do this Ramadan. We really must work hard this Ramadan. We have a lot of ground to cover this month of Ramadan.
To read, got so many things to do in the month of Ramadan, we've adapted to golf to look forward to, we have our fitrah to do and so forth we have to make taraweeh and these are all the things that you have to do in the month of Ramadan.
The chef looked
at them and the chair said, things to do in Ramadan or things and there are also things not to do in Ramadan.
So the students were perplexed they were confused. They said, Well, you know, the Czech say there are things we must do good things that we mustn't do in the month of Ramadan. Sharon already said
and they looked at one another students looked at one another for for some clue
about Did he really say that? Then we shouldn't do anything in Ramadan shouldn't be doing things in the month of Ramadan. Did he really say that? We must do things in the month of Ramadan.
They said Oh [???], but you always told us you know, you told us that the month of Ramadan is the month to capitalize the month of Ramadan is to maximize our efforts
because the reward is so great. Like I said last week, we should pay out soccer in the month of Ramadan. And one brother came to me after the Juma and he said but yeah How can you tell us we should all pay our soccer in the month of Ramadan. When every man's year is different every man calculate is a different time of the year depending on when is year begins. As the Hadith says Hata Hulu, Allah Al until 12 months has elapsed over your money only then do you pay zakat on the money not before 12 months. So I said Yes brother, I know that every person has his own year. But I am suggesting to you that you should change the menu entities and make you begin in Ramadan in ending
Ramadan. So he said why I said because if you pay Osaka in the month of Ramadan, you get
700 reward more than what you get in Muharram or any other time you to pay a soccer. So you should readjust your calendar and pay as a car in this month of Ramadan. Also, you are more conscious of allows pandal in the month of Ramadan. So your calculation will be much better than because you feel like in the month of Ramadan.
So yes, as they say to the chefs, you know, that this is what you tell us, you know, is maximized, and we must, we must do good. And we must, you know, don't forget about sleep, you know, we should stock up, you know, stock up the cupboards, you know for the rest of the year. And the chef's lips curled into a smile and he smiled. And he said yes through I did say that. Yeah, I said, I said you should maximize You know, my Katara we have read your peran and give a lot of data and do the night salah and so forth and so on.
And I say that you must earn a lot of reward in the month of Ramadan. He said but let me give an example.
So let me give you an example of stocking up and maximizing and doing everything you want to do in the month of Ramadan. So did me give an example says if you have a bucket
about four students sitting with him, one of them was Ahmad was saying the Zaid will give the names cuando Hamad. So he said to them, he said
let me give you an example. He says
if you have a bucket, we asked the students, how long will it take you to fill the bucket?
Not long. Okay, so the clever student, he said the charity depends how big the bucket is. Depends how fast the tap is running.
And so forth and so on.
So the sheriff says, well, let's
let's exclude all those factors. Let's exclude all the factors. Let's come straight to the point. Let's ignore all that are being the faculties
and our force, the tap is running intervals and so on.
what will happen if the bucket has a big hole at the bottom?
Will it remain full of water?
So the students now look very puzzled. What is she talking about? another bucket and water are all in the bucket? What is this old man is going senile old Alzheimer's
show that she had looked at them and they were puzzled. They looked at each other. And the chef said, well let me break your suspense.
I want you to listen to this. Really the story is really good. It's very good. I mean, it touched me very, very much. He said if we do a lot in Ramadan,
into everything that we set out to do in the month of Ramadan with any good, you know, all the good things you come to Juma early, for example, as a star, you know, and tarawih and Greek Koran and so forth and so on.
He says, but if we do everything in the month of Ramadan, but we do not give up the sins that we commit,
says we fail to give up the sins that we commit.
Then he says we're trying, we're like people trying to fill a bucket with holes in the bottom of the bucket.
You fold the bucket and you put all the good deeds and all the goodies going on top of the bucket like the water, but there's a massive hole in the bottom of the bucket. So what happens to the water, the water all runs out of the bucket.
And what what keeps the hole what keeps the water running out of the bucket? The sins that we commit in the month of Ramadan? That is why the chef smiled and he said that the Nabi sallallahu Sallam said Abu huraira says rude nasai mean hug the whole mean so yummy.
Navi sasaram said there are many people who fast
but gained nothing from the fast
except hunger obsessed
world aka even have the whom in Korea me.
And there are many people
who make Salah at night
and their Salah does nothing for them, except keeps him from sleep. The only sleeping so it is the Salah who keeps them from sleep. So this is what
the chef meant when he said you fill the bucket and you fold the bucket and there's a big hole at the bottom of the bucket. So you force and you do all the salads at night. Yet your bucket will know things that go into the bucket. The bucket is emptying itself
they don't have the students said but yes you know,
but why why why the men fasts and the men does all the good things you know.
So why is the bucket running empty?
Chef repeats and he says because the person did not give up sinning in the month of Ramadan. Perhaps he broke his fast with things which is not
he indulges in fitness backbiting
perhaps he looks at things which is haram to look at.
Perhaps he touches things which is haram to touch.
Perhaps use his words, which you should not use in the month of Ramadan.
These are all acts of sin. And then evisa Sallam said of course the Hadith man Mala.
Mala. mala Allah I know uma PMT Mina Nuff said the person who folds his eyes with Haram.
Allah will Phyllis is definitely Emma with a fire of Jana.
There is just one instance of Hara and that of course, is multiplied so many hundreds of times in the month of Ramadan. Then the chef said, fasting is a shield.
As long as there's no holes in the shield, as long as the shield isn't torn, it's a shield. It shields you from evil, it shields you from shaitaan.
And a shield that is broken or torn is not useful at all. You can protect yourself from the enemy, which is out there. Maybe she thought maybe evil. You can't protect yourself, we have a shield that is torn. And the tea in the sheet is the sense which we commit in the month of consents which you can read through the particularly in the month of one should be very careful in the month of Ramadan.
So one of the students also said oh share.
So what you're saying is in fact that we should be more vigilant about committing sin than doing good? Is that what you're saying? Are you saying that the month of Ramadan, we should not do so much good, we must be careful about committing sin.
So the chef said yes, you must be more cautious.
Because if you do all the good deeds without refraining from sin, then it's like filling a bucket with holes in it. It's useless. No use because as you fill in the bucket, the water is running out.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said was asked what causes
The shield that you have to teach what is the shield of protection which you have around you? And the Prophet replied, and the kicker the ball of Riba lies and backbiting, lies and backbiting. These are the two things we should refrain from not only before and after Ramadan, but particularly in Ramadan, we should watch in Ramadan, what we say.
Watch and that is why the NaVi Salam series in the very famous Hadith
is a carryover Samia honeycomb for your food, which is why in Sha tamahagane phonecall in the saw him in InDesign, that was an episode Sam says, when the day of fasting dawns upon you, then you should
not raise your voice
and use ugly words, swear words, and if somebody wants to fight with you,
all you should say is, I am fasting, I am fasting, don't enter into an argument. Just say you are fasting, you're fasting. In fact, it's even better not to say anything.
Somebody else is better. That is a test of strength of your character. I will walk around one day the prophets of Salaam was sitting with the Sahaba
and a man came and he started insulting abubaker acidic regular Toronto City.
So this man continued your this in nurse and nurse about Sarah Barker and data Bossa Nova. She evangelists in Abu Bakar
But only did he stood up. And then evisa salam said to him
when you were sitting abubaker, the angels were protecting you and arguing on your behalf, the moment you stood up they left.
So what does it mean? It means and this is difficult for me and for you to remain in the same position sitting or standing or keeping quiet when somebody is insulting you. But that is the real thing of character. And that is why in Ramadan, this is our biggest test goes in Ramadan, you will be tested, especially in Ramadan, especially about anger. The biggest days in Ramadan is this anger, your wife angers you, with children angers you.
You go to the shop, the shop assistant angles, you
either take too long, or they give you the wrong stuff and you become agitated and so forth and so on.
They doing it because Allah subhanaw taala is testing you as a Muslim.
testing your resolve to keep away from anger.
So what are the two things that breaks the shield, telling lies
spreading false rumors or saying false things about others?
So the main author Nagisa Samia rasulillah.
What if I talk about something and it is the truth
that we saw someone say that is backbiting.
And now we censor ourselves. And if you say something about an absent person, which is a lying,
hello, then you are lying and backbiting, the double punishment.
The only time you're allowed to tell a lie is on two occasions.
And this is called a white lie.
when you want to bring husband and wife together,
you're allowed to tell lies, I do it all the time.
I see couples all the time. I always tell the husband how much his wife says she loves him, although she said she doesn't want to, I will always say, you know, he says that he loves you. And if I see that husband, I'll always tell him first thing I'll say, you know, your wife came to see me and she really told me how much he loves you. So and the objective of course is to calm the nerves and also to and the second is
if you want to bring two brothers together, if you want to bring to two brothers, Muslim Brothers together, don't go and say, You know this person said this about you and that about you? Even if a person said you should turn it around and turn it into something good. And make the man shocked. He said, Really? Did he say that? You know, did he really say that? You had such a bad opinion about the man. But now you get this good news they mentioned you're a good person. So this is the kind of thing that we must do in the month of Ramadan. Don't feed the shaitaan with lies and with a Riba and with backbiting
So Michelle says, you know, fasting is not just about eating and drinking, you know?
fasting is not that is what the Quraysh did before the time of Islam when they fasted on the 10th day of Ashura. All they did was they stayed away from food and drink.
It is about staying away from sin. That is the biggest test of Ramadan
in need Tom, Tom Deacon and he can stay away from food. You can get a person from the Amazon basin who's never heard of a loud noise prophet. And you tell him there's 5000 rents sit in that corner, don't eat today and don't drink.
You'll say thank you very much, you know, tomorrow also,
for the same amount of money, it was easy to get people not to eat them getting this very easy. Not difficult. I don't think why why we should make such a difficult, but tell a person to stay away from her and tell a person you have to fast in the month of Ramadan. Not with your stomach. Only your eyes have too fast.
Your ears have too fast. Somebody was just gonna say Salaam Aleykum
don't say yes. And really what happened? What did he say? What did she say?
Our lambs was fast. We must have gone to places where you're not supposed to go catch things you're not supposed to do.
So one of the students aid he said OSHA so this changes the whole notion of fasting
we thought it was just you know we should stay away from food and drink you know and be good. And that's fine. You know, we didn't think about this fasting of the eyes and the nose and the you know and all this you know and the woman fasting his whole body is fasting amici was with hijaab and covers of our in such a way that she won't be the cause of breaking the thoughts of another strange man will look at and think she's a beautiful woman when she got a nice body because you can see also the woman must understand they have a great responsibility and the man also must know that he has to lower his gaze in the month of Ramadan and all other times so they said this is very difficult and
it's tough. I mean, he says you know this is very tough. I don't just make that happen you know don't eat any buka make Dharavi go sleep you know and integral work you know that's that's Ramadan, you wait now for four minutes add on life goes on. So your chef says that is why allows for handler says in the Quran, you read a lot will be como usara. When you read the book omalos Allah says that allows for hundreds impose forcing upon you not to make it difficult for you. But to make it easy for you to live in this world.
Because if you can save away from her
life is very easy. You can sleep at night, don't have worries, nobody's gonna phone your wife and say,
you know, my name is so and so. You know, and so and so No, no, no, no, no, that fungus will come to your house. Because you behave yourself.
So you will live a decent life because you stay away from these things. So the she had looked at it because it's very tough. This is difficult. So the she had looked at Jade and he said to say Jay, I know you love kababs
narrated this the other night in a different form. But they chfc to say Jay you love come up said yes. Yeah, of course I love kababs every night. My wife must have kebabs on the day. Like he will say no, I want some more. Every night he knows that Moses and Moses doesn't taste nice you know? I see if your wife can taste is a Moses during the day. You know they blame earth because the Moses too salty whatever.
So he says yeah, every night Yes, my wife has kebabs on the table. So the chick said tell me that would you eat a kebab? 30 seconds before the run tonight
you love a tomato either 30 seconds before the announcement
so they said course not know how can you say anything? Like how can you expect me I mean why did you ask the question I didn't know most he knows he won't eat 30 seconds before the other so this is why why don't you eat 30 seconds before the alarm goes off 15 seconds or 10 seconds just watch 30 seconds
so they said no no, no, no, no, no, no No because first of all, my whole day fasting will
be null and void all the old days fasting for one cup is not worth it. And second is he says I will be breaking the command of allows Juan Mata
allows terminal commands that you must
formatting, you must wait for the other
and when they are when there is a law you mustn't make recur. No no, no, no, no,
no, no no no. Or make No, no no. When somebody says I love them food must be by your mouse.
Now this Hassan says this oma will remain a good oma as long as they break the fast on time.
The two outcomes after you've broken you're broke to drink water then you can make dua, eat the date, then you make dua, those days because you're gonna put your hands on McDowell.
You're commanded to fast from sunrise to sunset, not a second later. That's I always wondered the Shia who break the fast 15 minutes after Maverick.
Strange but true.
Maybe just to be different. So the chef says you know, to say it, so in the month of Ramadan, you will not eat anything before the alarm goes, nevermind how much you either Somoza you have to wait before you can put your hand on it and put it into your mouth.
So much self restraint, look at the restraint. Well look at this average and you have all people full of food, have the best food.
But you won't touch anything on that table until the modeling says Allah. That soft restricts Han Allah. We don't realize it. But it's such a great self restraint that our consciences because of our email taqwa as we have imposed upon ourselves.
But the sheriff says how little
do we think of what comes out of our mouth?
We practice so much self restraint, in not input not putting things in our mouths.
But when it comes to the things which come out of our mouths in the manga, La La La quwata illa Allah
there is no restraint at all.
In fact, people sometimes say worse things in the month of Ramadan than before or after the month of Ramadan.
So what is the message of the what is the best thing we can do? We must watch what we see what comes out of the mouth.
The success of a good Ramadan is not
what we put into our stomachs, it is what comes out of the mouth.
So they said to his teacher, so teacher while we've listened to all this, that you must watch what we say. And we must guard our tongue Nagisa Sallam said two things. Well, there are two parts of the body 99% of people will go to jahannam. Because of these two parts of the body, the tongue and the forest and the private parts, tongue control the tongue, and government or the private parts, these two issues will lead them into the fire of john. So they said teacher share. So what's the best thing to do in the month of Ramadan with Nina told us about the self restraint that we should practice
with what we say and what we do to stay away from those things which are last walnuts prohibited as allows handler says you know the Koran? Yeah, you're Lavina amanu
koulibaly cocr mocha makuti Bala la Vina Min publikum la la quinta.
And the chef said this self restraint of what comes out of the mouth.
That is called taqwa of Allah.
He says because that demands effort, and consciousness. Because taqwa is to be conscious of our laws to stop yourself
from saying things which you're not supposed to say. So I don't know what's the best thing to do your teacher in the month of Ramadan.
So the teacher said that she had said the best thing to do in the month of Ramadan is to avoid sending in the month of Ramadan.
Now what about the bucket? Zaid asked what about the bucket that was supposed to fall and the chef says that allows ohana tala wants you to try and fold the bucket.
All the metal solid has I said all the good deeds that we do in Ramadan. Remember, if the bucket is going to hold in, doesn't matter how much you do.
The bucket is going to be empty at the end of Ramadan.
You have to have a bucket that has got no holes in it see and what is what bucket is that? That is a bucket where you tell yourself in sha Allah and you can't do it alone You have to ask the help of allows Panama
Allah as I said the other night, Allah mantra de la ilaha illa Anta sadly Safari should make this all the time. Allow us to enter Oh Allah You are Lord.
Always make this door. Even the whole day you can make this to Hello mantra be paced to make it in the morning once and in the evening just once in the morning once in the evening, say don't is too far.
The best of his tips for the master of forgive asking forgiveness. Allahu mantram be Oh Allah you are my Lord. La ilaha illa Anta there is no note except the
color cottony. You created me Look how beautiful the words are. That the profit is these are the words of the prophets also spoke to Allah halaqa Tony, You created me. Why?
Because the tattoo, and I try my best Allah to carry out your commands. So you say to young Kenyan, I try my best to fulfill my contract with you.
Hello, na vida como esta tarde?
Minami masala ami Shanti masala, O Allah, I seek refuge in the from the sense which I commit we all send us all in the same boat.
requiring the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala
abou la cabina Matic Allah Yeah, look at the words of the Prophet he says to Allah, abou la cabina ametek Allah yo Allah, I acknowledge all the favors that you'd bestowed upon me so hard on knowledge, or let's face it, so what I will be Zambian Allah also acknowledge all my sins in front of you. First fiddly, Oh ALLAH forgive me
for Enola, hi Phil de Nova Illa for you say to Allah no one can forgive me except you Allah.
If the world comes to you and says, you can get forgiveness via something, something else or by somebody else. Hello now you say well, no, but you say like Mohammed said salada while is futile do know but
none can forgive.
None can help you on the path to goodness except Allah
we're all sinners, how do we keep away from sin? How do we stop the setting that we do? As our
only one way to do it You must ask Allah to help you.
If you ever thought of doing it, you also
will all have it too. Sometimes we do it continuously. When we think how am I going to get out of this? You know, big and small since you say Allah you helped me I want I want to stop doing this. You must help people. You oh my god You created me.
You must help me.
And this is the month in which a chef says so chef was asked what is the best things to do? And I say to you what is the best things to do month of Ramadan?
You don't have to do anything. Just avoid committing anything. Of course you have to do for Salima.
I must be very careful what I say.
Hola Hola que si si.
Now you must do whatever you have to do of course the Mandarin adonay are too fast and you have to make Salam retaurant and all that. But the most important task you must say to yourself is when you leave your house particularly you must tell yourself
I'm going to avoid whatever allows handler wants me to avoid and secondly
to fill the bucket with good deeds and by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala before the bucket in the month of Ramadan with goodness it will remain with us even after Ramadan
because brothers for me and for you that is the greatest challenge. The greatest challenge for me as a person and not including you even in it is how do I continue after Ramadan?
Why is it that after Ramadan we take a dip? Why is it
it's because we haven't filled the bucket in the month of Ramadan. It's because we worship the month of Ramadan.
We worship the month of Ramadan. Why do I say that? Because why is it that when Ramadan is finished we stop. It means we just did it because of Ramadan.
All the songs is about Ramadan. Everything is about Ramadan. Ramadan is just the name of Monday January February March. You can't worship February and March and April and May your cat and Elijah. Allah didn't say worship. Where does it say Muhammad the worship, but what do we do? Everything's ramadan ramadan Kareem.
What is Karimi?
generous who's generous? Ramadan cabbages, we say it because we mean a legend. But actually we should say Allah. Allah is generous.
And when we worship in America we don't say as Travis Ramallah knew we were going to make Salah alive in the masjid. 20 records for a loss.
First not because for Ramadan No, we force now only two so Mahajan and Addai Felicia Rama avison Lila, Lila atana we fast because we say we don't say Leah Ramadan we don't say we firstly Ramadan No, we say false, live na heated. So it's very important for us to understand that simply do nothing except only to stay stride stay away from the things we're not supposed to do. And if you can't ask Allah, may Allah inshallah guide us and keep us safe from sin, especially in the month of Ramadan, and after the month of Ramadan in May inshallah, we all have buckets with no holes in it. So we can fill it in the month of Ramadan, and it can last us inshallah till after Ramadan. I just want to
say, I last week, I spoke about the situation in Cairo, and I'm not going to speak about it. Now. I know what my time is up, I know.
And I said some terrible things. I know, it sounded terrible about Saudi Arabia.
And I got an email from a brother
from Saudi Arabia to say that he was very upset that I had have such a low opinion of his king.
in fact, I upset his drama. I said, and I want to say to him that I am extremely sorry
that I upset him. Very, very sorry, because NASA Salam said, you know,
