If accepting if your relatives invite you to Iftar during Ramadan, and you feel that by accepting the invitation, it might impact on your Ibadah Yep. This is a very,
this is a very good question. Yes, this is a very good question. See, there is no black and white in in this matter. For example, a mother invited you, your mother invited you okay.

And those who are invited, they need to travel to accept that invitation. And of course, they will be socializing, and a lot of time will be wasted. I strongly advise if we can use that money and for the sidecar and use that time for the specific API that then definitely that would be better.
