spinarak Rahim Salam aleikum. warahmatullah wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah said in our rasulillah early he was a happy woman whether this is a poem that I wrote called springs gift because it will be at oh well originally was in spring.

00:00:19--> 00:00:21

And so this is

00:00:23--> 00:01:18

my Zakat inshallah I envy the sand that met his feet. I'm jealous of honey he tasted sweet. The birds that hovered above his head of spiders who spun their sacred web to save him from his enemies.

So that was that was my attempt at cycads. But I think what you meant to say said was, was absolutely true. We could never say enough. I mean, one of the miracles I think of the prophets a lot he said him is that his name is Muhammad, the praise one and here we are, I'm, I'm a son of the state of Washington. My ancestors came from Ireland, they were great. And Greece, they were great patrons of the Catholic

and the Orthodox Church.

00:03:10--> 00:03:20

And here I am praising the praise one Muhammad's a lot he said him so these are Signs for the people that can think and reflect and
