We have this locus of control meaning we there are certain things that we give undivided attention to. And you know sometimes it can be our children and you give everything to your children. Sometimes it could be you know, for the younger crowd it could be school putting so much effort into school making sure that you're getting good grades you want to go to pre med you know, medical school, whatever.
But the fact of the matter is the for the most of them the locus of control is a relationship with Allah
that is the only one that you can give give give and not lose
when when you give to your children unconditionally and you have nothing for yourself when they leave
you know, if you did a good you know, you did good by them, but then what do you have, you have people who sit there, they don't know who they are, they haven't done anything for themselves.

So knowing that the other things are important of course, we have a mandate that we have to you know, fulfill, but that is the relationship with a law is the is the first
