In which parts of the world but I know there is some of you are in England because this is Cambridge University in England I'm sure there's some people in the states and maybe everywhere else in the world. This is the beauty of having this technology we have to be
very grateful to this technology. And I always don't. Yeah, it would be nice if everyone tells me where are you from? It really will well It makes me feel the the sisterhood we always talk about and in spite of all the difficulty we are going Alhamdulillah we have this internet and one of my daughters you may laugh I was like your love Please don't let Khurana comes to the internet because it really was helping us and it still is helping us hamdulillah and I hope and pray everybody's Ramadan is going very well even more than what is expected and it's very interesting Subhan Allah that when the Islamic the Cambridge University Stan society invited me to speak what's the same
topic that's actually we have our Ramadan planner we wanted to plan something it's so interesting for Zanna isn't it? We were actually wanted to do something about the two fast short reminder to everybody that is not too complicated. It is something simple that everyone can listen apply and practice it not too complicated, not too sophisticated. And somehow mana the fella who this came to my mind this actually this is the plan the planner, I'm showing it to you and you can easily get it is by just go to
our website and there is a you can register once you register it's a free you will get it and then every day on our media, on our Facebook and on our YouTube channel there is a small
video comes with it so basically it's day by day what what action I will do that Allah subhanaw taala will love me so we are going to go with you through the actions that Allah loves that I'm going to do daily, we chose the 30 actions and inshallah by the end Allah will love me. And then Panama This is the same topic that you guys wanted. And it's it's beautiful. I mean there is nothing more beautiful. Allah Allah, Allah when I'm saying this from the bottom of my heart, there is nothing more beautiful than the fact I know for sure that Allah loves me. It's not the claim is not I mean all of us can claim, right? We all claim we love Allah. And this is very easy, because
everybody can claim what they want. But I cannot say Allah loves me. And I am sure
number one who I am, this is how I say to myself, and I'm not saying to anybody, I'm talking about myself who I am, that Allah loves me. You have to imagine, right? For example, always when you want to
learn something, bring examples from reality. So here you are, you say for example, this is the most popular person in your community, for example, right most popular person in your community and you say, this person, she, I am her best friend. I was like whoa, she chose me. And you're gonna say wow, people will say Wow, what's so special about her that she chose you that's a human being. Now look at a loss of Hana hautala will love me or will love you love us. We can claim it, but reality is very difficult. So that's the first thing the concept of love. Number one, the concept of love. And then the concept of Allah subhanho wa Taala I have this relationship with Allah and the
relationship of love. We normally most of us grew up with one relationship.
Don't do that you will go to the hellfire.
Allah will be upset with you, Allah will not give you field
and we need the field, we need the field we are with the last pantalla like our children with us, you will love them, they love you. But also they have to be afraid from you otherwise they will not obey you. So here I am. My relationship I'm gonna do with insha Allah through this talk, I'm going to take you through and through the whole Ramadan by practicing these small things, daily small actions very small. I will feel that my relationship with Allah is closer. And the feeling is feeling of love. You are not afraid you are in love. And you all of your mothers, especially, you know this feeling, it's the feeling of being in love with someone and this is my goal. This is my
goal and I will share with you as we go the dwarves of Roswell, so it was around about he asking a lot to love him. So number one, when we start, let's be very careful when I claim or you claim, we claim. Allah loves us. That's a huge claim.
I say and I didn't say clean. I say I love Allah.
And Allah will say, okay, Show me.
Show me where it is your love. And Allah Subhana Allah put that in shorts earlier in Milan and some of you may be familiar with it. In Iran, Allah subhanho wa Taala said and the verse is 31 cool in conjunction a boon Allah factor we only use the como la
I'll translate and I want you to feel it with me say all in control. If you if you take Boone Allah if you love Allah, factor B only factor B only follow me This is Rasul Allah hisako said I'm saying say if you really love Allah, Follow me Follow roswaal a saw to some his soon What will happen you have been a Kuma Allah, Allah who love you.
You're welcome Allah we'll have a look on the novacom I'm not the only gonna get the forgiveness of Allah spandana or I'm sorry the love of Allah subhanaw taala I am going to get the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala and forgiveness of my sins one Allahu Allah for all right. So number one, number one, the concept of love is in the Quran. I need all of us to learn this, the concept of love like there is concept of Jannah there is concept of the Hellfire, there is a concept of love this relationship special with Allah. And here the one I just shared with you is how Allah loves me.
Now Allah in the Quran, and this is what the planner will will give you and I will share some quickly with you, what are the things I do, and you and Allah will love me.
Being a Muslim itself is not enough. Interesting. Allah did not say in Ohio Hebrew muslimeen.
And however, Allah loves those who worship him only
in Allah labeled caffine Allah does not love those who Kaffir reject Him. So the concept of love in the Quran now this is the month of the Quran. This is how we will learn the month of the Quran. The Quran, when you are reading everyday, once you get to the word you love, or lay your head doesn't love, underline,
underline or write it in a note. Usually next to it there is a character there is an action or don't do it. Meaning this in the Arabic language is very common is that they say it is by it or the opposite of it. So Allah will say in Allahu Allah loves or in Allah La him. So these you you as you are reading your Quran, and in every almost every chapter in the Quran every day, there is one of these sometimes more actually, Allah loves or Allah doesn't love what I and you need to do. I need to know this. The one he loves, I need to know the one he doesn't love. I am going to do my best number one. I'm a physician. So I'm going to speak with you in medicine. Number one, I have to
diagnose myself. look inward. Don't look at people. Look at yourself, look inward and see does any of the characters Allah has Allah wants me to be taught so he loves me? Do I have it? Do I have it in Allah
fago sabreen Allah loves those who are patient of mine
in Allah your herbal massimi Allah loves those who are good doers am I and not a claim? Not a claim? It's an Action. Action. And this is the small videos we are sharing with you every day. What does it mean like this morning we shared I don't know if they shared that yes yet but it is about October in Allah your head with the webbing while you're a bull Matata Hurry, this is a solitary bacara the cow and the verse is too too too easy to remember when Allah talks about my situation. He ended up by in Allah Verily Allah loves he. So panna capital H, your head with the Wahby, those who are in constant repentance constant. Pay attention to this, it's not a one day action is not only a normal bond
action, this is in all your head mutawa being pay attention to the way Allah use it in, in the Quran, that the scent that the word in which form he used it at the word been meaning they are in constant Toba in constant tober. Meaning, I will make sense you will make sense but he wants me to go back immediately to him. Ask him your love, please forgive me and change it. So look in this every single day. Again, with the with the planner, you put yourself and if you don't have the planner yet, for example, look at this, right? This is was yesterday, right? Or this is actually today, I'm sorry, you had both the Wahby and we put you This is the verse and under it here you have
the actions, actions, this is what I want you to do, and do more. We chose only 30. Because of the days of the Ramadan, there is way more and there is also some from the sun. So this is number one step.
I'm going to go back a little bit. And let's come and talk what is the word love mean? I mean, I wish I am with you in public, then I'm going to ask you and you will answer me but unfortunately 100 in love in the Arabic language and amazing the beauty of the Arabic language we use the word hub, ha and ba only two letters. How and ba and the only difference this word has five different meanings by only changing the vowels, only changing the O or E or R. So five meanings. Yes, exactly. Marshall lots of Article offers on zacky law. So we have these seats, she put it there for you. If I am going to say number one, number one meaning this is linguistic meaning right origin of it when the teeth
teeth are white, shiny, and bright.
White, shiny, bright and pure. They call it harbor bull. So
that's one. That's one.
Number two. Number two is being obvious. It comes out shows off can't hide it. Can't hide it. That's another meaning of the word. Now think connect this with the love the feeling true love. not claiming through love. So number two obvious it shows up. I cannot I cannot hide it. Number three. Number three. And this is if you put a towel on the HA HA Fatah and you put shudder on the bad habit. They call it habit no ha ha ba only hamba
What does that mean? What's it they say have Melba your the camel habit? Basically stayed firm, steadfast,
steadfast, Now pay attention. This is love. This is all the same word. So three meanings. Pure, bright, obvious, constant, stable, Are you with me? Are you with me all doesn't change doesn't change. And number four, it says
a loop or hubba hubba meaning meaning the seed the inner seed of something. Inner seed of something so it goes way deep.
way deep. Number five Subhan Allah Subhana Allah if you only put kestra yeah farzan put kestra under the HA
Okay, and Shanda on the bar but put them on the bar hibou
I'm sure all everybody after this, we're going to go learn how to be please do. Please do because it comes beautiful that the dean our Islam becomes even more beautiful when you know the language himbo. And this is very common, some parts of the world still habit, the sister who is with us from India, it's called the Hague. And we still have it also in the Arab world. It's actually a clay container, that people put water in it, they didn't have filters and no fridge, they put the water in it right to protected.
And they call a tag but same word. So the fifth meaning is, you protected, you're protected. So love. Now take these meanings, apply it to love,
apply it to love, love is pure,
is bright, is obvious. It's constant, it's constant, it's deep. And it's protected. You care about it.
The Love, love. Now, each one of you, each one of you going to answer this question to herself, no need for people to know how much my claim of the love of Allah my claim
of the love of Allah
applies to these five criterias it's pure, pure only for him. It's obvious. Everyone see it on me not claim, not words, see it on me actions, how deep it is, how much I care about it. And I protected and how much it is constant doesn't change in Ramadan, it's up and after Ramadan goes down. When I am with my friends, I'm different. When I am alone, I'm different. It's constant state, constant state. So basically basically in one of the beautiful meanings of love, and you apply it to Allah, it says meaning it is the pure feeling
that moves the heart that moves the heart that shows up on the body. And the heart will not replace it with anything else, no other feeling and it's constant with it with him or her and will give the person you love you'll give him everything.
That's the love of Allah.
That's the love of Allah.
Now how much we really love Allah subhanho wa Taala and I'll share with you a beautiful saying this is always you hear the same when anyone talks about the love of Allah. And this is an emammal Junaid le momily Junaid legendary in piety and legendary in relationship with Allah. And he there was a group of people sitting in Mecca.
And they all the discussion in the group look at the discussion what they talk and look at us. The discussion is about the love of Allah.

What is love of Allah for you now love of Allah for you. If you want to write that right down, I'm going to translate as much as Allah makes it easy for me. And he said, first of all, his eyes were tearing,
and he said,

looking to his Lord, by his heart, now you're only looking at Allah always with your heart. Do you know what does it mean you look to Allah with your heart.
There's, there's no there's no lenses here. But there's a huge lenses here meaning anything in my life
I say I do. I don't say I don't do is my heart immediately look at Allah and say Allah? Should I do it? Is that pleasing to you? Is that how you want me to do it? Or your Allah? This is not something you want me to do. I'm not going to do it. Now they don't either he'll be I'll be looking at a law with his heart. Now actions, I'm still talking, I'm still translating the statement of Lima murjani fell into kalama fabula. If he speaks, or she speaks By Allah, wa Inaba for Angela,

When we speak By Allah, words, about Allah move by Allah state by Allah He is, this is what I want you to memorize these last three for him for who? That human being Billa Allah moves me. Allah moves me when I first started studying. I used to remember one of my teachers you say used to say, I'm not going to do whatever Allah showed me and I was like Allah how he's going to show you know, like for us I mean especially I'm talking about for me, I mean you're you're a person who studied medicine so everything is obvious for everything is based on evidence how I'm gonna see a lot and then I'm not

And you say I don't know why I can do this but I just can't do it. Then you find out is because what you want to do is not pleasing to Allah. Or you say I didn't plan anything. It just happened

And she says, I forgot how to speak with the lockdown. And then and she said, What do you do? I said, talk to Allah. Talk to Allah. This is your opportunity. You're alone. Talk to him, read his words, read his words, make your dua. You don't have to memorize all your hours. Talk to him. You're a law. You gave me everything. And I didn't do anything for you. As simple as this. Your last piece will give me you know how you got into Suhana nickel Two Minute Warning me. The more you do this,
you're the more you start the relationship. he'll pull you. He, he'll pull you and He will show you practically we always want practical. how I'm going to do the SR ifa. This is a beautiful talk. But tell me, give me 12345
I'll give it to you. How do we number one, and it says Pamela Alhamdulillah. It is in Ramadan because it's much easier in normal. number one. Number one, you read the Quran with understanding and what Allah wants from you. This is the number one a lot of Quran reading your word, his words. I had the three year old some time ago asked me how can Allah talk to us? You know how beautiful these kids and so beautiful question how can I talk to me? And I said yeah, no, she said there's a lot of talk to me. And I said yeah, and she said how I said read the Quran. She said one it's his words.
Cora however having said that is not the Euro Hydra. You read it just quickly so I finished the hotma. Again, very recently somebody was asking me so like I do to Agia in a thorough way. And I was like, Mashallah, how long that will take to powder as you say it. So about 40 pages of the Quran.
40 pages in the night in Tarawa. And I was like how long this will take. She said one hour,
That's reading you will get the reward of reading saying the words, but I'm talking about here. Our goal is Allah loves me, and I love him.
Read it. Take your time. This is what I recommend to everybody who's asking, especially those who don't know the Arabic language.
You make it daily, in this beautiful month of Ramadan.
Whatever Allah time gives you, we are very different. Spend time with understanding the Quran. Not only reading Yanni do only one hotma. Finish it only one hotma
one para a day if you read the juice takes about an hour. If you're just reading, but spend allocate another time that you will take one page half a page one it doesn't matter. I want you to understand that what is he saying? What is he telling me? What is he telling me? Right What does he say? Alif Lam Meem daddy Kalki tabula rasa Buffy who Daniel McAfee first iron sawtell bahco first verse in Advocaat in the cow chapter. This book lowri Buffy no doubt who then guidance to those who have Taqwa? What does it mean?
Keep asking this question every day in Ramadan, pick one IRA and hamdulillah there is plenty of programs now. I will recommend you have to have something alone with a law. Show him the efforts. It's not just sitting, listening to a video it's very easy. This is called passive learning. passive learning is a good start, but it will not change me. What changes me when I put the effort. When I learned today that I need to read the Quran with understanding and from today, not from tomorrow. today. I'm going to allocate 30 minutes or one hour whatever allocated, don't change it. allocate. See what will happen. See what will happen at the end of Ramadan. You know why? Because you put the
effort, what he Subhana who will do will pull you
will make you understand more. Allah Allah they allow and I'm sharing this with everybody when I started memorizing the Quran, I thought I will never be able to do it. It's impossible. And a good number of my teachers said they told me later of course
But Subhanallah you keep doing it, you keep doing it and you fail and tired and you get up and you do it. No one gives it to you at the end. So number one, read the Quran number two, before I get to two, there is no claim of love of Allah without doing the obligations. There is no don't talk about a loss love what I love him. He loves me why I want to be at the mammal tonight and I don't wake up for fragile. We are claimers. We are basically saying what we don't do limita coluna malata follow? Why do you say what do you do what you don't do. So number one, now comes steps. So I'm gonna read the Quran with focus, I would pick one to whatever Allah opens for you. Number two,
to get closer to him. To get closer to him.
To get the love, you need to do the extras. In this you will compete extras, all the sunan of assala all the extra, the non or the voluntary extra Salah to before fudger Salatu Maha two or four before world war two or four after Lahore, then to two after memorial to after Russia. That's first, then I will graduate. I'm in Ramadan, I'm going to do more. I'm going to do the two before us or it's not commonly done. I'll do two before Mahara and then my tarawih my tarawih we, I do 20 Alhamdulillah. Now I'm going to do 20 and I'm going to read more, or I'm going to do 20 and I'm going to read longer, I'm going to do longer sujood I'm going to do longer
record graduates, this is what I say always to myself before anyone you cannot be today second day of Ramadan you are exactly the same human being in your relationship with Allah, meaning in your actions in your deeds with Allah the same as last year, we are losers.
I need to continue what they call a tolerable Allah and get closer to Allah subhanaw taala by performing number one, his obligations and then
closer is by the extras and I will share this hadith with you so hanifa Cozzi, some of you may be familiar with it.
I'll get to the questions. Probably I will finish another 1015 minutes and then I'll take some questions and please forgive me at two o'clock, five to two I have to to finish so please forgive me if I cannot stay longer. Allah Subhana Allah said in this hadith on kotse
matter arroba la Abdi Vichy in the name of Dr. Holly, nothing will bring the human my servant you and me closer to me to Allah, other than what I made obligatory upon him or her. Nothing I was saying nothing will make me nothing. Whatever you do, you did not start this is I'm commenting. You didn't start the journey of love of Allah, if there is no obligations, no obligations. Having said that.
The obligations is not only do the obligations is don't also solo on time. No backbiting. See, I'm from Yvonne. No looking at haraam giving my czaka not withholding charity. Right? I'm talking about obligations, no obligations. So then the dual obligations were rolled while they excellent treatment to the parents. That's an obligation not to excellent treatment. ladipo lahoma of don't say off to them. That's also a don't, that I'm not going to do. So the first step look at your journey and mine with the last pantalla as a road as a road.
GPS, put it on the GPS, my destination, Allah's love.
Where do I start your law? Right? What do they say starting point when you put the GPS? When do they tell you you put your home address you put somewhere else? Your start point, you didn't take the journey yet, your start point is the obligations. Each one of you listening to me look at obligations that you don't do, or haraam or this obedient to Allah that you do this need to need to be out.
Now but I didn't get to the love of Allah yet. Back to the Hadith. Matter hora de la Abdi Vichy baliem in Matera, totally, nothing will bring the servant of me close to me, other than what I made obligation, Okay, next step. I need to get to the love of Allah. Look at what Allah is saying here.

Allah will give me an idea all this, somebody will say well, every time I ask Allah He gives me and I do not obey Allah. That's very dangerous. That's called in the stomach terminology. STD Raj, Allah is pulling you more and more.
You know when you gave up on someone,
child why you have never done that when you give on someone who says I am done. I am done. I'm not gonna do anything, let them do whatever they want. I'll give them anything they want. So if I and you May Allah not make us of those who disobey Allah, and then he still gives me that means a loss pantalla is letting me to myself, and he is not interested anymore in me returning to him. So number three, number two, at the Auto Buddha law, number three steps practical to get close to Allah subhanho wa Taala is constant decree of Allah.
Constant dekha remembrance of Allah they say the sign of real area of war Li the real alliance of Allah subhanaw taala that you're always in liquor, liquor is reading Quran, they can memorize the Quran, they can say stop ferula they can Alhamdulillah the curse upon Allah, the curse Allah and they can morning and evening as constant remembrance even when you are with people and let the talk is not about Allah or something to get me close to him. You stay silent but inside you you know everybody now have these rings that you do have Salah Allah and Rasul Allah salatu wa salam reminds you this needs to be your heart. Always licola number four, number four,

I had the from what you love, anything Allah loves will take precedent. Anything Allah loves will be number one. Anything Allah loves will be number one, even if what he wants a loves I don't love, but I'm gonna do it for only one reason, because Allah loves it.
Where are we? Where are we here?
anything he loves, I do it. Although I am not informed of it, although I don't like it.
And then that means things I like I am not gonna do. That's a huge sacrifice. But that's the love of Allah. That's the love of Allah. So number four, number four, you do the things that he loves, even if you don't, number five,
learn love and live the names of Allah.
love and live the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala His names and characters is not we only have them as hanged in our homes.
is you know the meaning what does it mean a lot of man. Allah is the merciful meaning with everything I'm seeing with all this COVID-19 Coronavirus with all the death with all the lock down with all the loss of jobs, loss of resources, loss of freedom, all what we are Allah is still a rock man.
He didn't change he doesn't change.
Where is a rock my Allah Allah I'm not seeing it but I noticed there then you know Allah.
It cannot be May Allah forgive me You cannot say I can see where is Allah is Rama. And how can you tell me a lot of man look

And if I don't know how to do get there, ask, show me your law. I know you taught me until Rama, please show me your. I'm not seeing it. I'm weak. I'm a servant. I know nothing. And Allah taught us these days how insignificant we are, how weak we are, how a small virus that nobody can see.
Shut off the earth. That's how I look at it. The earth is on lockdown. Shut off.
Animals are very happy. The trees are happy, the earth are happy. Everybody is happy, except to human beings. Freedom.
So you're a law. I don't know your names in actions. Show me ask him in your draw in your Witter. When you're so dude, doesn't matter. The more you know about Allah, you start seeing him in his creation and this is how they teach you in our theater. They say Allah subhanaw taala did not show himself Subhana to us, but he showed himself to us through His names and attributes. And he didn't teach us His names and attributes
directly rather by his actions, the creation the beauty, the snow, the rain, the grain the desert, all this a Jamal and Jeremy so learn the names of Allah learn love and most important live live I have no doubt this is higher for me. This is how you say you say things I've no doubt whatever happens is good because it's coming from Allah number six. You see his bounties on you individually. You see his bounties on you don't say don't take everything for granted. Of course, I worked very hard. I studied No, there's a lot of people who studied very hard harder than me, but he didn't give it to them. And there is people who have studied much harder than me and he gave them more. It is
him. Him in Namah Kowloon alley Shane is our dinner who and all Allahu coldfire cone Allah says this is what the nine and the bees innama Oh Luna Alicia wehrli if we say something, if we want something to happen, the only thing we need to do is we say be and it will be

I can't tell you what it comes one of them sick he said a young man very young man boy actually and he said is my disease he's sick. He said it's diseased and nerima and I said How come he said nobody else has it.

Number eight I may be going a little bit because I want to give you all this and I give you some time for questions and answers. Number eight, and this especially in Ramadan.
halwa seclusion, alone with him. Only. seclusion meaning no phone. seclusion, meaning I'm not talking to people. I'm not saying I'm alone in the house. But I'm not alone. I'm with the TV. I am with the internet. I'm with the YouTube and with the phone. No no no no.
seclusion, and this is the best time this year. And actually I called Rama while I gave it a nickname. I call it the Ramadan. halwa is the Ramadan of seclusion because you're not seeing people no parties, no invitation is not even Tarawa and Masjid. It is you and you with your family also but also your family will go everyone will go to their room at one point.
seclusion spent time with him. just spent the list sit down and talk to him. Think think of something beautiful. You have seen

Number nine, company, peer pressure spent a lot everywhere. The speed of pressure. Title applies. You spend your time with the righteous people. Don't spend your time with the not righteous people, those who are heedless, they will pull you away. You want to be with people who will lift you up. You want to be with people who will say, Oh, you only do 10 taraweeh you only make one hour in Ramadan. I don't want people to say all matter online or you know, I want people to lift me up. I want people when I sit with them, they remind me of a law. When I see them, they remind me of our law. modulus masala when they say spending time, companionship is your righteous people, whether on
the phone, whether on the groups, whether on the social media, whether in person, people I choose this or not, I'm not talking about family, family, we have no choice, but I'm talking about I choose them. These are the people who will bring me closer to Allah number 10. And this will be the last one, that number 10
stay away from anything that will prevent you or will put a curtain or a hijab, or a barrier between you and Allah will allow. And Allahu lubaina and Maria lb. One Sharon, Allah said this is sorted I'm fat and no, no, that Allah can put a barrier between you and him.

women in what are you are called by luck and put a barrier. So move everything that will put a barrier and number one barrier that I put on we'll put between me and Allah is since this obedient, don't do that. Don't do that. Stay away from sins. Because there is no love of Allah with sins. subhanak Alomar behind the cache Edwin lerida hoglund testofuel cola to bully sobre la alesina Mohammed Ali who was Harvey testament kathira I asked her last pantalla to accept from all of us I asked her last pantalla to reward everyone who worked on this in London and in the US I asked everybody who gave us one hour of her time in Ramadan or his time in Ramadan to listen to us May

Sincere from your heart. Think of yourself and this is a beautiful concept I learned that you are on our every time I feel I'm away from Allah, I bring this concept back. You're in the middle of the ocean.
And you do not know how to swim.
You're in the middle of the ocean, and you don't know how to swim. You're about to draw to die. And you're holding to a piece of wood in the middle of the ocean. Nobody in the dark. How we will call Allah pantalla what's your da? How are you going to say your Allah nobody will save me except you something like that. This is how you answer one more question we should end for exam.
See what questions we have.
Another person has said can you give examples of how to see his balance sheets? Yeah, absolutely very easy.
Anytime you walk in the street and you see somebody on a wheelchair,
or picture of somebody on a wheelchair, or on crutches, what's the bounties on you and me? What's the bounty on you and me? I'm walking. You see somebody blind,
and your work and you're you're seeing
that's a bounty even easier. We are well I live in St. Louis, we are heading to me. And may usually is the month that you get a lot of thunderstorms and sometimes not uncommon, we lose electricity because we have big trees and from the thunderstorms. The trees may fall on the electric lines and then we lose it and we become completely dark. We don't see anything. You can't even cook the freezer or the fridge is not working, what bounties we had.
And then when the lights come back again you say Alhamdulillah
that's why there's a DA I'm glad this question comes in. There's a DA I'm not sure if it's offer roswaal in salatu salam but it says along the lateral alaknanda Amica visa, your Allah don't teach me and show me your bounties by taking them away. What bounty now we had an he took it away. Freedom, work.
