lamoni hours will be coming in milliamp hour alveoli of xiaowen I've seen Latisha while you are in ladysmith
will have been laid on Kara in the console will have obesity surgery. Wessely, Omri. While up that Emily Sani of Capaldi hearby me It's a beautiful topic today actually, we're gonna continue with Sydney Brahim in. I can't tell you how I enjoyed preparing this is one of the few times that I do it, because I'm enjoying it, not because only I have to prepare, but I was really enjoying it as like I didn't even pay attention to the time. I'm like, it'll grind. So just let's review what we learned three weeks ago. So we said Satan, Ebrahim
is one of the special, if not the special, with a roswaal he sought to Islam, if you look at the prophets is when you talk about the Prophet, Satan, Abraham has a special
place a special status, he was actually mentioned in the Quran is about in 69 places. And his name by itself has a special
character. And the name itself, the meaning of the name, if you remember we said is the father of the crowd, the father of nation, or the nation, their high status father, the Most Merciful Father, the loving father. So there's a lot of meaning in his name. So how long this is probably every time I read this, I remember this, I remember where I saw a saw to sit on. One of the things he ordered us and he said, the right of the sun, or the right of the child, the newborn upon his parents is actually his name.
Like the new board has a right upon his parents. One of them is the name, choose the name.
And this is why when he was he actually named that has somewhat Jose or Swati site or center. So when you come to see Nikki Brahim, one of the neat, look at the meanings and then look at the meanings of his name and then look what where he is when he became the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. And what's how much of the name is actually him, the father of the nation's the father of the crowd, the huge crowd, the high level, or the elevated or the
very merciful Father, or the high status father, and look at all this, we always say abouna Ibrahim, we say that our our father, Ibrahim, even other other faces, like other Christians, Jews, they say it's our father, our forefather. And this has stayed after 1000s of years. I mean, 1000s and 1000s of years. So Panama, and we said he was born in Iraq in war. And then he was actually in the Quran. If you look at his stories, and you compare it with the other prophets, probably the closest one I can see now you say no Moosa, but no one was looked and mentioned in different stages of his life, in different parts of his life and in his different status of his life. He was mentioned as a son,
and he was mentioned as a father which we're going to cover today in sha Allah, and then he was mentioned as a member of the community in detail. And then he was mentioned as a single person with a lost power dialer and a single person in a community but Allah did not mention the community. And he was a Rasul the Prophet that Allah subhanaw taala ordered Rasul Allah, he sought to Sarah, to follow his footsteps was the only one with to be a middle letter, Ibrahima hanifa. Follow, follow the path of Satan Abraham. So every time when we mentioned say, Abraham, when we read about Satan, Abraham, had we have to feel different and special, and all the faiths, all faiths on this earth
we come from Satan, that's my eight Jews and Christians comes from Satan that is help but everyone who believes in Allah comes from him. Hanalei imagine, we always worry about our children. And we worry that our Allah knows. Now people not only worry about the children, but they worry about their grandchildren. Right? And Allah knows in 50 years in 100 years what will happen Allah only knows right? We all pray that's what we can do. But look at him 1000s of years people who say that the law will believe in a law whether they say that you don't like the law or they say there's another but they believe there is God they all came from so that's why they call them herbal MBA is the father
of the whole profits is saying that you Brahim and a lot of our as Muslims rituals, especially the Hajj is follow his footsteps. We're gonna come to this today when we speak about him as a father and he was the first one on this earth who migrated for the sake of Allah
The first one on this earth, left everything, left his family left his town and absolutely migrated to a completely different country. He left Iraq and he went all the way to Palestine, Egypt and Palestine. He did, actually to migration. And then he went to mock and then he went back to Palestine, the first one on Willow hydrofluoric. They say he's the first one who migrated on this earth. So panela that time and he actually the founder of the law,
the word that you had a lot there is no God but Allah, not only externally, but internally specially when we cover today, the founder will say Abraham is maletto hanifa he was a straight, he did not go right now go left. It's always he's always focused on last time. And one of the and especially those of you who were with us in the retreat, one of the also landmark of Satan Ibrahim is what we said this many times in the retreat. He is the one who has the sound heart and who made the supplication they do our to Allah, that I go to you, your Allah. I come to you with a sound heart, and another place in our Safa. Allah confirmed his journey or Baku because
he came to his Lord with the sound heart in sha Allah, which is like if you go through the Quran in sequence, if you go to solo to shout out the column, the poet's then you see he made the dua Zinio mo baton.
Yo mulayam family one avenue laminata La Habra, Calvin sorry this is all sorts of shout out the poet's he made the draw. Please don't disgrace me. Don't disappoint me on the day when I come. Nothing will be avail neither children nor wealth except the person who comes with a sound heart. Go more in the Koran come to the US 2323 port and Ian sorts of Safa and Allah described in this way is Jaya arambagh who with Calvin sorry, he came to his Lord with the sound heart as a fella who responded to his job in the Quran we read it and this is when he very nice when you read the Quran specially in sequence and you see how Allah subhanaw taala is specifically say named Brahim. How he
responded to his
how he responded look at the most famous da he did the most famous supplication he didn't saw tillbaka
What did you do? That's why you and me are Muslims. What did what's the dua he made to Allah pantalla robina Oba thi him or soon I've been home to LA him. I artica are you Ali Mohamed Kitab al hikma was a king in the content. As he said hacking all your Allah sand from among them a prophet. He didn't mention the name, but he gave the reason and the description. You recite your IR teach them the way the sooner the wisdom and purify them. And Allah immediately two pages, flipped sorted by two pages later on. Come on our son now he caught us rambling.
I told you as we have sent to you, our profit from among you a lot responded to his job. Now when you you always have to ask this question. When you say this person, Allah always answer her do her supplication or you know, please make dua for me, because I know Allah always respond. This doesn't come free of charge.
We can all claim what we want to claim. But to me to be a someone who Allah answer your door,
just see what St. Abraham did. Other than he made the dua himself, and he worshiped a lot and he believed in Allah, but look at the test he went through and how he responded to the test. And that's actually what I want to share with you today and sort of soft fat. And so what is Salford
Allah looked at say that Ibrahim as a father,
he mentioned a little bit and this is in case you want to know what's usually from Isaiah from verse 99, to the verse 109 surah sofar talks about the prophets. It's very similar to sort of MBR where the stories of the prophets comes in. And some of the stories is exactly the same different wording. subsidence, Sydney Brahim, in sort of Salford, completely different and only in a software, it was not mentioned anywhere else. A lot of the stories in the Quran are repeated, but repeated a different way. But in sort of soften the story of Sydney Brahim is only father and a son.
The test that none of us none of us can even imagine. That's happens to us. You
Imagine not not like you know what i think i i cannot take it I cannot even imagine. I will ask Allah subhanaw taala not to test me this test and a lot of us will say al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen I know Allah will not test me this way. You know why?
Because I'm not say no right
now at least I am honest. So let's see what Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we're in a mushy it labor on him. Most of the time. That's something for you to learn when Allah subhanaw taala mentioned so you'd need Brahim specially if it is a story of prophets usually before him comes home.
Most of the time, not always, but most of the time before him comes home.
Which is we said it he is his relative, Lord, usually pay attention when the stories of the prophets are together are mentioned in the surah. Lo Satan a lot always comes either before or with. So in fact, actually the usual signal why there was no and then in I'm sorry, here is no. And then when the mushy Attica Ibrahim from his progeny, Ibrahim. So now we're coming to the story of a Brahim. So when you see this and you say okay, what is Allah teaching me in this one? First of all he described him with this is Joe or Buddha, Calvin's son, he came to his Lord with a sound heart. And we went in detail in the weekend about the sound heart, just for those of you who were not with us, what is the
number one criteria of a sound? Heart pure?
What did we say? If you remember any of you who were with us sound heart.
is empty, empty from anything but
anything pleases Allah is in that heart. Anything is not pleasing to Allah is out. anything, any attachment, any love, any feeling of love, or hate. If it is pleasing to Allah, it is there. If it is not pleasing to Allah is out. That's an illusory
which is very easy.
Very difficult my last Pantanal give us and make it easy for us. It's not easy. I mean, the only one mentioned in the Quran is Satan a brain in a jar or bahuvida Calvin sorry. So the story starts by declaration that his heart was sound, meaning no attachments. Now pay attention to why I'm saying this. Allah is declaring that he has no attachment but Allah and you're gonna say how is that your Allah teach me? Okay, so he comes with you to the story. First, he said, is already a bee, he will call me mother tabooed. And I'm not going to go on this one in in detail because I want to come to the next. So he said to his father and his people, what are you worshiping? And then we worship
idols and he said, You worship idols, they don't even listen to you. And then you you make what you eat. So they got upset with him, and they said, We are gonna do what we're gonna burn you. So they throw him in the fire, you know the story in as they are throwing him in the fire. Now remember this because this is related to elbow surgery. This is related to the sound pure heart, so they throw him in the Hellfire who came to him?
So you know debris.
And he said, Do you need anything? He said, He's being thrown in the fire.
And he said from you, nothing
from you, nothing from Allah, everything.
Look at the sign of the hobo sorry, from you. This is saying that you breed is not friend or someone who has connections or someone who has wealth, nothing.
And then Allah said, No, this is a commentary. But in the surah Allah said for our doobie he came for Jana who was very, they wanted to plot against him. We made him we made them the losers. So far, now comes, why he is overselling?
Then he said, he NEEMO has your own nrbc ID. We're gonna start with this. He said, I am leaving.
Going to my Lord. And I want you to focus on this word. He's gonna guide me. That's the literal translation. Sadie. Yeah, Dean each where
he's leaving. He left actually. There's nothing
No GPS no car. Nothing nobody no one with him. Don't know what he is going. No means nothing but one word. Which this what we needs to be in our hearts. So gradually May Allah subhanaw taala give me an arbitrary say a headin.
He didn't say he may.
He said he will.
He will. That's eliakim Sir tennety that's a lot will not let him down. Although there is nothing there is nothing. One plus one equal to there's nothing he see that things will get better. On the contrary, but he had it here. Say a dean. That's a loss Hannah hautala will never let me down. He will help me the words meaning he'll help me to support his D he will help me to obey Him. He will help me not to feel lonely. He will help me to guide me to get what I need to do
think of this you and me Get lost.
Do I see say a Houdini
that's one lesson the one lesson per se it's a neighbor I say a Houdini he is gonna guide me guide me to where I need to be number one it means you know Allah knows you're not know you know number two you know he listened to you. Number three you know he will not let you down.
This is something we really need in our daily life. daily life so he said say Dean, okay,
what next? I probably mean a solid he made the dua that we all do. Everyone do. You do it for yourself. You do it for your children. Right? Y'all Allah give me give me happily gift to me when I saw the
child that is righteous. What is wrong with that? Beautiful. High blooming aside? immediately. Number one, door number one, da was absolutely granted for Bashara who.
Immediately we gave him the glass chiding the hula haleem and there's a very important reason why it is this description. We gave him the glad tidings of number one a boy because Allah specifically says all lamb now there was no ultrasound that time. Nobody knows. But Allah subhanaw taala Basha now who gave him the glad tidings the wife had not even delivered yet. And how old was the wife?
publisher Now have you been Holly gave him the glass hiding? You will have a boy. That's not it's because now you say okay, I can go and do an officer and I know it's a boy or a girl. What is the big deal? This is how shaitan comes to us.
Allah gave him the description that you and I would love to have in our children haleem forbearing and when you read the commentary of it, I loved it. Look at that llama see it. They say he did not only gave him a glad tiding of a character of the sun. But he gave him a glad tiding that the sun will live longer, because somebody who's forbearing is not a child.
Right? child is not forbearing child usually cry easily. They don't have patient when you say someone is highly meaning he had reached a certain age, that they become forbearing Bashar now who be who Lamin Hari so gave him the glad tidings imagine this. And if you read in other places how his wife took this lactating for soccer guajajara happy she changed her face and like clenched her teeth and says what all the fertile woman
another place. But this is not the here this is not the most important.
Then suddenly, the woman delivered and the child grow up for a marble Obama who cya when the child grow up and reached an age Allah didn't say the age he said a say meaning the child reached an age that he is able to work with his father.
A survey that we all do when we go for Hajj is actually hard work. So they said this child became an age that he can help his father very different opinion about how old the range is between seven and 13. If you read all the commentaries, they say he was between seven and 30. So they
two characters so far about the child of Satan Abraham that we know number one is forbearing and number two, hardworking help his father, which we all love to have this in our children, right? But this is not a this is like the introduction and who is the child?
There is a huge difference of opinion.
Half of the scholars of Tafseer the old one they say it's it's helpful actually.
And half and some of the contemporary real scholar they say no, it said no, Brian, it saved this money. And I loved the commentary that said, it doesn't matter.
Because the idea is not Who is he? Who Which one?
Whether it's fault him or sorrow, or is how or it is a smile. It is Who was he?
As a human being Did you get that doesn't matter what is my name or your name? It is how the child respond. So it doesn't matter. How was he How does he look? Don't let cython take you away. And now comes in the test now the father, Bella, Bella mahasaya. Now the child grow up. The child is beautiful. The child is absolutely helping the father taking all the burden off him. Satan Ibrahim, see the dream. And in the commentary, they say when the child was born, save net your Brahim said, I will give him a sacrifice to Allah sallallahu lilla. He said it that I will give him a sacrifice for law. But I'm sure he didn't think this is how it's going to be the test.
But a Marbella mouse, I know he's seven or 13. That age, which is in these days and age you're talking about probably a college age because that time people like fettle when they grew up, they grew up quickly, and they become more mature quickly.
The father Cedric, and I will share with you what some of the scholars said about it. It's amazing the incident itself. So the setting the Ibrahim saw a dream. And in the dream, he is actually slaughtering his son. Hi Leo Boone. Are you in our office in Miami and me
or my son? I see in a dream that I am slaughtering you. That is a slaughter or Bonnie
that's the other word we all use what's called bonhomie
slaughter an animal But why?
To get closer to Allah horrible, it is horrible. To get closer.
It's not the idea to slaughter to eat. It's actually to get close to Allah. Okay, so the sun, the immediate answer
on a 35 matchup model or my father, do what you are ordered. Yeah, but yeah, and when you read it in the Quran, for those of you who not only the Arabi, and that has no year, it's only a leaf battery. It's very short. Very short sign of love and closeness. We don't need a fourth letter. We just take us through. Yeah, but if I'm not
sure what you are ordered,
neither the father hesitant, became hesitant.
Second thought maybe I was wrong. Neither the sun sets. Amazing, amazing, this one. Look at you and me and look at us. When Allah ask us to do something difficult.
I'm not gonna say something easy, something difficult. Think of something difficult we as woman,
or as a mother, or as a daughter, or as a human being a man. Allah asked us to sacrifice something that quote unquote, does not make sense. Right? What is our response usual?
why what's not fair? Well, I'm sure it's not the meaning. And we start trying to find excuses. Not saying that Brian.
And this is now the description of the story. This is from the commentary of the Quran. They say he took his son
and he didn't tell him right away.
He took him and he says let's go and give sacrifice to Allah. He didn't say it's you.
And with him, he took a knife and a rope.
And he took him somewhere in Makkah. Between Mina and Makkah. That's what the scholars differ is it in Macau itself. Some says it's in the huddling and some says it's in Mina itself.
Some says it's in between, again the place is not the issue. So when he get to the place where there was no one, he looked at him and says, My son, you are the sacrifice. And he said the I offered him an army and he as
I see in the dream, I am slaughtering you.
And the sunsets if and matomo do what you are ordered, but look what he said. Look what he said. He said, All father,
take my forehead and sit on my chest and bring the knife. So when the knife compose, when I move, the knife does not hurt you.
You're a law. It's amazing. This story is amazing, amazing. And don't slaughter me when I am in a prostration
and say to my mother, peace be upon her.
And if you see it is okay, take my shirt and give it to my mother. Maybe this will make her feel better.
Yeah. Now, Lola and Satan evil Rahim says what a servant of Allah you are.
This is the answer of his dua.
He made the dwai Allah hubballi mina Salahi, give me a song that is righteous. That's the righteous, then Satan, Ibrahim actually tied him and started and he kissed him and start to promote start crying, brought to the knife
to the front.
Can you imagine this? I cannot see an animal being slaughtered. Let alone is an animal that a human being let alone My son, let alone this son. And when he brought the knife, the knife did not move.
It did not.
So he changed the direction and went in the back. back of the neck. And what's happened with a knife turned upside down the other way around.
here Allah said, Yeah, Ibrahim I've got so doctor Oh, yeah. This point Allah said to him, yeah, Ibrahim, you fulfilled that dream.
In the heart, Allah who will Bella movie, this is the greatest offer, they know who will be the penalty, and we made sacrifice with a huge sacrifice. The idea is not to kill your son. That's the meaning. The idea is
number one, to obey a law. Then you're going to say, why this test?
Why it couldn't be something else.
You ever think of this? Why this test?
Why I mean obedience to Allah can be in any other way. But why specifically, this very difficult test.
Because signet, your Brahim Allah said to him, I do not accept anyone in your heart, but me.
And he saw that he is loved. He loves his son. And of course you love the son, your son. You're much older and look at the sun.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala was testing him.
Is he truthful? In Alba setting?
Is he truthful? So you and me when we claim the claims, I love you, you're a law. You'll give me this and see what I will do. Here Yoko.
Allah who wanted him one two, Tim wanted to see if a lot wanted say you'd met you Brahim. And this is very nice. I wrote it down because I loved it. They say and this is the moment he said, Ibrahim claimed that he loved Allah.
Then he looked at his son, and he loved his son, which is very natural. I mean, everybody loves their children. hardest thing is the children.
In a last panel with his beloved, they will not accept any competition or any partner.
And he says, Yeah, Ibrahim, slaughter your son for me.
femur robotic for me.
I say Nick Ebrahim took the knife and went on to do it and he said, This is insane. Horrible.
He said the art of law accept him from me
so I can please
your own law What did we give for a law
What did we give for a law
any time five minutes to do a proper Salah is very hard for us right? Let alone give money let alone forgive people let alone do something pure for Allah with naughty word. Not I'm not talking about painful I'm not talking about losing the the son and we struggle so much. And look how Shay upon in case you think it's only us. And this is also a monopoly he said a shine on came to save me Brahim. This is before the the cast of the pebble. And he said
I'm able to lower Ibrahim, then I don't have to do anything afterward.
A sheath on the devil.
So he came to Satan Ebrahim as a man.
And he came to the to his mother
first came to the mother, and he said, Did you know where Abraham
came to the mother? I want you to feel the story. It's not the story. See what's happens to us in our daily life in our homes. So he came to her mother, and he said, Do you know what he took your son? She said, No.
He said he took you. He took him to slaughter?
She said no. That's my mother. He is way more softer, and loving, and he cannot do that.
Then shaitan says while he claims his Lord ordered him to do this, look at the answer.
This answer needs literally to be engraved in our hearts, in our homes. And everywhere. She said,
If his Lord ordered him to do that, he better obey his Lord.
suparna law, this is the mother. This is the mother. So she upon has no control here. So he left her. Then he come to the boy
came to say that smile or his help says, Do you know where your father is taking you? And he said no.
He said he's taking you to slaughter.
And he said, Why is that?
And he said, he claimed his Lord ordered him to do this.
And he says, Let him obey what his Lord tells him. I hear and I obey what Allah order.
That's the son. So now he could not get into the mother. He couldn't get it into their son. Now he came to me.
That's why we cast the pebble.
And then he came to Ibrahim.
And should I said to him, so what do you want?
I think now look at this one. I think shade lawn came to you, in your dream, to order you to slaughter your son, so don't obey Him.
See how he twisted it? How he twisted it. I think shavonne came to you. Because he came in the form of a man shavon king to in your dream to make you kill your son. don't obey Him.
Brahim looked at him say stay away from me. Enemy of my Lord.
Stay away from me. They have Ania do Allah Stay away from me. enemy of Allah, by Allah, I am going to do what my lord or the
builder here on the NEMA I'm a lot of be By Allah, I am going to do what my Lord will do.
That's when shaitan now Ibrahim left show for so he came, he walked first time he came to him again was where
john bottle aka the big stone that when we go to hedge that we cast first one, the big one. And he says don't do it.
And he cast him with seven puddles and walked and if to those of you who were to want to hedge, it's a walk, it's maybe like three, four minutes while it's not a big walk. Come again that teaches you how shavon keep after us till we disobey unless we are saving Ebrahim
What Allah subhanaw taala give us and productores came to them with the one he said don't do it. Throw him with the sun
came to the next one and he throw him with the seven most of the Hajj that's what I keep telling you. Most of the Hajj is actually the story of savior Ibrahim
and then shut down after third time, I have no control.
took this is what his son took his son and he went, and some say it's in my arm maca. What he slaughtered them. And some says it is not it's actually a special place in Mina and some say it is in between
lessons to learn.
The word of law said in sort of soft fat, and I want you all to read after the dream. And after the son said yeah, but if I met my father, do what you want to do. Allah say philomela s llama. What tele Hulu Joby? How do you translate this s lemma? What is a slimani?
accept? no argument. That's Islam.
And they say this is exactly saying that you were our he showed us by action, by action, not by preaching, not by word. What does Islam mean?
Islam, my religion and yours is number one full confidence in a law. That what ever he orders me is good for me. And I don't argue.
Confidence, number one. Number two is complete, blind obedience. Obedience, because if you read this story, and you live this story,
externally, nothing. Please forgive me that law Forgive me. I'm just saying it for people to understand. Nothing makes sense. Unless afterwards, you know, that Allah will save him. But as he was taking his son, he didn't know Allah who saved his son. Right? He doesn't. And the son doesn't know Allah who save his life. It's Allah says semia No. Well, Donna, so number one, full belief and trust that when Allah tells me pray five times a day, that's rich for me, when Allah tells me don't do this, this is good for me. Number one, the belief because that's, I think, number one issue we Muslim these days have. We don't have this full confidence that what Allah tells me is good for me.
Because everything around me unfortunately, tells me the opposite. Number to obedience. Obedience, enough for me as some, some scholars and some righteous people say Don't tell me the reason. Look at this. Don't tell me the reason. Enough, Allah told me, dude.
I don't need the explanation. I don't need you to explain to me and tell me what science says. And what they discovered recently. enough for me, Allah said panela three, three, complete serenity and peace internally with the order of a law however the order of Allah is difficult.
serenity Tomatina he walked a slammer Okay, father, put yourself on top of me. So when the knife comes in you it doesn't when I move, I will not hurt you. That's peace. I need to ask all of us ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us this and we our tests is not 1% of this. Not even 1% of this. And when he says do they do? Look how many tests in the way came through? So you know what I mean? And nothing stopped. Number one, it is him.
So look at you and me when Allah ordered me to do something, and that thing is difficult. Number one obstacle is who is
I find it difficult, right? I find it hard. I struggle number one, say even Abraham number one he got over
over it. And this the Yang either Oh yeah, the vision of the profits is actually true and it's order from Allah. Number two. That's why you have to know who you spend time with. Who are your friends, is the people around him.
helped him to obey Allah. Number one is his wife,
the mother? Can you imagine this, the mother tells him, show your lawn. If a law told him he better he better obey his Lord.
He better obey his Lord. She didn't come and says, I don't think what you saw is right. You know what? I don't think so anyway, there's a lot want you to do this, how we justify for each other. That's number two. Number three, the son himself, the family, basically the surroundings. This is one of the tests, one of the, I mean, there's a lot of lessons. But one of the lessons you look at is you work on yourself, I work on myself, but the surrounding is very important. People, my friends, my family, are they helping me with me, not even helping him, but they are actually pushing him to go and obey Allah, regardless of me or them. And, and third thing we learned, a lot of Hannah
Horta had and I loved this point, when he tested me and you because this is a test. And we know the result of the test. But as they were going through the test how hard it was lonely, knows what was in the feedings, and the heart of Sydney, right? How we read it, we start tearing, they say Allah subhanaw taala does not need the pain, or the struggle, you want one thing from me, and you and that is submit,
submit, and you're alive, make it easy.
Submit to the will of Allah submit to the test, and ask him to help you. And what he wants from me with every test. And this is applies to all of us. Every test, I go through tests of good things, test of the things I love, and I like and test of the things I don't like and it is very hard. He wants one, two things. Number one, submit. Number two take out from the heart. The attachments that we all have, I call it the word I and my
these are attachments, it's especially young generation. It's my toy, have you seen children, it's my toy, it's my own. It's my food. It's my house, we get older, it's my car, it's my children. It's my, my the eye and this it should be nothing is mine. This is what Allah wanted him nothing Allah gives. And unless Potala takes out, I need to keep asking a lot and this is one of one more that the story of saying that your volume and his two are the Quran which specifically in our software that teaches me that a lot does not accept anything equal to him.
