What Toba Sadie keen men. They're a little loopy. We'll ask that the Toba of people on a path to God is the Toba of things in their hearts having a bad opinion of somebody. I'll give you an example, in Mauritania
and it's a true story. There was a man there. He didn't have his beard. He's young man, a lot of young men shave their beard. And he came into this. There he was in this thing, there was an old Imam there, one of the Aloma, they're very simple man, very humble man. And he
