hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen What have I learned from the last trip was a

00:00:15--> 00:00:18

The main thing I learned I'm gonna start with the story.

00:00:19--> 00:01:15

The night before I woke up, my knee was really hurting so bad and it was bothering me and I can look at it as See there was a fluid built in. So that that morning when we started doing the Salah for an hour, like the long sujood and long the Roku, and as I was planning on doing it, so I thought about it, how would I be able to do this? The first instance was like one when everybody was doing, I just wanted ahead and did it. So what I have learned at the end of the day is, is Don't ever say you can't do it, just do it. And after that, I literally unhandled the lead to mal hamdulillah. I knew money was still hurting. But I did not felt any pain whatsoever. While I was there, while I was

00:01:15--> 00:01:18

still praying during the St. Jude.

00:01:22--> 00:01:45

My biggest takeaway from the retreat is the importance of your near the importance of your intention. And basically I have learned that with every action that we do throughout the day, we can turn it into that by just changing our Nia and I am more conscious of everything that I do now, because I make sure that I set my intention right from the get go

00:01:50--> 00:02:05

deker something that I got out of the retreat, I've never thought I can you can kind of connect it to allow in a simple aspect of the figure. And which made it so much easier in my life. And it's easier to do.

00:02:06--> 00:02:33

And so you don't have to kind of spend a lot of time on doing it and doing it. You can do it in the car, you can do it as you are working, walking, exercising, it's so simple. And something that is so simple, and we made it make it so difficult to do so. And the retreat kind of made me to be connected to that. And so that is something that I say I can 100% taken away from

00:02:37--> 00:02:45

the 2017 Dr. heifers retreat is by far my most spiritual life changing experience.

00:02:47--> 00:03:38

I was raised with the concept of Tobit. And since childhood thought well on the central role of Allah Subhana Allah in our lives. But it's one thing to know and understand this concept in theory. And yet it's another thing to internalize and personalize it. That Richard provided me a rare opportunity to reflect and assess how I internalized my to hate. And in doing sort of the haifeng characters to place a camera in our hearts and record our feelings and take pictures of our intentions to then review it and be candid ourselves and ask ourselves how Allah Subhana Allah shows up in all those instances. I remember sitting in front of the coronas, a beautiful lake and breaking

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

down and sobbing my heart

00:03:43--> 00:03:54

as I realized my weak relationship with Allah subhanaw taala I came back home, super energized and motivated and I can't wait for the 2018 break

00:03:56--> 00:03:57
