for CT brothers and sisters.
Today's topic is going to be about something which,
which affects all of us. And I think a lot of us have questions regarding this. And sometimes we are puzzled about this. And we kind of sometimes wonder what is going on. Because if you look at the situation of the oma today, it's not getting any better from compared to 10 years ago, 20 years ago, it's, you know, it's always up and down. And there's a lot going on. Now, before I get into any of that, the primary thing is to understand that most Muslims see the world as I mean, when I say most Muslims, I mean, most of those who haven't really studied the Quran properly, who haven't really studied, the sooner probably, they tend to see the 10 tend to see the world in a black and white
through a black and white lens, which means that they end up saying, you know, there's there's a man of believers or belief in believers, and they say, there's code for and what they might say, curfews are the disbelievers or disbelief. And it's almost like
there's a, there's a group here that wants to always be attacking the believers and the believers have to try their best to defend themselves and, you know, move themselves in a positive way. And it's almost always like this black and white world. And it doesn't do justice. Because even Alaska never made a black and white world. Even though there are references in the Quran that may appear to be black and white. The Quran is not black and white, if you study the Quran properly, you you take all the, what you need to do is you can look at one reference of Cofer one reference of disbelief. You can look at one reference of a man or belief. You cannot look at one reference or Allah has
mentioned the two together and say, Well, that's it see, you know, the two have to depart and so on. Yes, it's true. The two are different Eman is different from kofu. And so so basically belief is different from this belief that is very clear. And Allah has said, there's a very clear distinction between the two fine. And if you look in the Quran, you will find for example, looking surah Kahf Iran. The surah is called the disbelievers right at the end of the Quran, and he says Kalia, you will know you who disbelieved la vida matava don't I will not worship the things that you worship. Well and tomorrow I will do them I will do you will not worship but I worship Allah and I will do my
bottom I will never worship but your worshiping Allah And tomorrow we will do not worship what I worship lacantina Kamala, do you have your religion, I have mine. Now, when you look at this, it really looks like a black and white situation like divide, you know, because you're part of this apart. But where the great misunderstanding comes in most of these cases is that people haven't really looked at the background of why this particular verse came. If you ever studied the Quran, and if you don't look at the background and put everything into context, then you make you're going to make a serious mistake. And a lot of Muslims unfortunately have made this serious mistake. So
what they won't do is they won't actually you know, go deep in comparing the different verses and looking at the different contexts because there is no text without context is very clear principle. There is no text without context. So even in your family household, somebody said something, you know, let's say you came home and somebody you know, got said something rude to somebody else. something rude, whatever it was, it was something rude and you came home with a what? My brother said something rude to my, you know, sister in law. What I mean if you call straightaway, two brothers, how do
you make no mistake straightaway because, yes, your brother might have been rude. But you haven't. Okay, let's say you should investigate. We all know that you should investigate fine. But the most important thing is even if you know your brother was rude, you need to now ask why. What was the case? Why was he rude to the system, and then you get a better picture. Now, if he was rude because of something silly. Like she, you know, she was in the house and he was just trying to watch what he wanted to
on TV or something, and she wants to do whatever she wanted, and then turn an argument as really silly, right? But if it turns out that there was a major incident where she left the door open and a stranger was about strange actually came inside and he was about to cause harm serious harm to either the house or the family.
And then he was rude to her, you know, it changes right? It changed the whole context changes now because she's now left the door open and almost you know, kid could have been kidnapped from the from the house, you know, all sorts of things could have happened because a stranger came in the door open. Now, I'm not saying he should have been rude, it just doesn't justify it. But you can understand that there's a difference to the first scenario where the fighting of the remote control of something which is silly, and then he was rude to her, that's, that's not appropriate. But when you come to the Quran, every single time when Allah has given us a text, there's a context and what
that means is
Korea, your calf Iran was revealed at a time when they when they disbelievers came to make a proposal to the province alarmism. So they had tried to stop him in his mission. He wouldn't. So their proposal was this. They said okay, since you're not going to stop.
And many incidents that had happened and even the whole of the social, you know, they had so many dilemmas. So they put a proposal and said okay, because Don't forget the machine or the or the disbelievers or the policies in the province of last time. They believed in Allah as well. You got to understand this, they believed in Allah but they believed in 360 additional gods and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was saying no, only one God that is Allah, no other gods, nothing exists. So they came up with a proposal. It was a clever proposal. They said, Okay, let's do this. Oh, Mohammed,
you and us will be equal. Okay, we will join you in your worship, in just worshiping Allah azza wa jal, all of us just Allah that said,
all of us, trust us. We'll do this. You and us together. Yeah, we'll just worship a lot for one day.
And the next day, you join us, and you worship the 360 plus Allah. And the next day, we only will worship Allah, Allah with you, your God only, and the next day you worship all our gods, plus Allah.
And that's when the surah was revealed. Korea, if you don't, or you just believe la vida Matata, I will never worship what you wish. Now, if you ever bring this proposal to me to try and get me to worship your gods, it won't happen. While I am happy to know you really in your heart. You cannot worship My God alone. Because when you worship My God alone, you have to abandon all your gods. So how is it ever possible that you will even compromise on that one day when you wish when? Just Allah alone? I know you believe in Allah. But how will you actually do that when in your heart you still love all the 360 you believe in the 360 you believe they have powers you believe they are real gods.
When worshiping Allah means you have to give up all other gods
and then that's when the end of the verse he says Lachlan, Dino kumala Dean you know you this is your way of worship your religion, and he's married is my religion says you have to give up all your gods and worship only one Allah, your religion says that you can worship all on one day, and you can worship many gods on another day. Well, I'm sorry, that's your religion. This is my religion. Do you guys understand that now? So this surah was never meant to give you an idea that there's a black and white call for coup for disbelievers in this email in the seat en la la
la comme de new kumala de you caught you really go out and what they then do is they pull out verses from Quran and don't get me wrong every verse they pull out okay? It's got to be when you read it
you almost read like there's there's a black and white you know, clear thing to understand that. So let me give you let me give you a verse where Allah azza wa jal he says very clearly yeah you are Latina. Amen. Oh you believe. So this is now addressing us. Younger Latina Amano La, La La yehudah one nesara Alia. Allah says here this is Surah number five and number 51. Allah says yeah, you let them know you believe don't take the Jewish or the Jewish people and the Christian people earlier as your as your close allies. Bow to whom Alia about some of them are allies of others.
Romania to Allah hoomin confine amin home. So whosoever will make them close allies from amongst you, then you really have them. In Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah will not guide those people who are oppresses. Now when you look at these verses very clear, very clear, don't make them your close allies. Now, you've got to understand Subhana, Allah loves him, that this verse also has a context. And this first needs to be understood with many other verses around. Because what Allah is saying is that, you know, from the apparent meaning of this verse is that you don't make any, you know, close alliances with them. However, if you look at Rasulullah, sallAllahu, grisms, Sera, you will find the
Prophet sallallahu wasallam, when he came to Medina, he made a pact, where he had a constitution made an agreement between himself and the Jewish people of Medina, so that they would form together a ruling party that will rule over the whole of Medina. But at the head of that was a colossal alcoholism. And if the Jews had a problem, they would, you know, they would do something, they would judge by the Torah, if the Muslims had a problem, they would just buy the Quran. And this was a pact that stayed together as a constitution for some time, until the very people who signed that will Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, they broke their side of the agreement. Otherwise Rasulullah
sallallahu has not had his agreements there. So So part of this agreement was that if the Muslims were being attacked from outside, then the Jewish people will help if the Jewish people were attacked from outside, the Muslims would help. Okay, this was very clear in the agreement. And a Muslim would never kill a Jew, a Jew would never kill a Muslim, and it almost never did that, then he should, you know, be killed in return of that if a Jew ever did that he should be killed in return on that. There are many laws that were placed about 51 different articles to this constitution that Rasulullah sallallahu has made. Now you've got to take that in consideration with
this. And you've also got to take consideration for example, at the time of war, because what normally happens is people say, well, let's say there's a war going on. That's it. No more negotiation, no more sort of listening. But you're looking for an though the Quran has said yes, they may reveal, you know, they may want sometimes the Quran does say, they, they want to hear when they hear a muse of you, it makes them happy. It says that, not all of them, but some of them in you know, if you have good news, it hurts them. We're in tough Rahu if you're happy, right, it will hurt them. But if you're if you're afflicted, then they will be happy. Okay? It says things are fine. But
then you get a vest, I get sued and foul sutra number eight, and number 61. Allah says we're in Jannah. Holy sell me, vagina haha. If in the midst of a war, we talk about this, this idea is if you look around, it is talking about battle in the war.
In the middle of a war, they come to you with a proposal of a treaty.
And they want to just stop fighting. And they won, you know, a bit of a true sort of Treaty. Allah says, Allah
agreed to it agreed to the treaty, what are called Allah, and dependent Allah in the law in the who, who was semi orderly, he is surely the one who listens to everything and the one who knows everything. Now, what this is saying is another side to the first I that I said to you from sudama, either, so number five. And if you don't take both of them in context, you will not be able to understand the Quran properly, you can't take this one ayah presented in black and white way and say, Well, this is what Allah is telling us to do. And for example, if you're looking for and you will find that Alaska has said in many different situations, how different people come to you and
try and strike a deal with you to not fight with you. And Allah says, some of them Allah says, agree, and some of them Allah says, Don't agree, if you want to find all of this later on, I'm not gonna go into the details of this quite long. Look in Surah number four, and from EIN number 1991 90. Yeah, a 1991. Just look at that you will find a lot of things Allah says about the time of war, some people Allah said, Okay, fine, you make an agreement. Some people Allah said, don't do that, because they will, they'll come back and they'll do something worse next time. Now, again, what I'm trying to give you is I'm trying to give you a flavor of different things, why each of
these verses were revealed in a different context. And when we when we now see what happens is most Muslims, they will start you know, if you listen to social media, if you listen to people blogging, if you listen to you know, people writing
about what's going on in the world. Most of the times you kind of get this black and white. Oh my God, look what they did. They're all together. They're all trying to do the same thing now, so had a lot of him Allah says Allah Quran he said laizhou Salah when he was discussing
the Jews and the Christians, though he said in that other verse I just quoted him sort of my that he said, don't make any close allies. I mean, you're not supposed to make any close allies fine. You know, that's something where if you make someone your close ally, it means that you're going to be chummy, chummy with them and everything. Allah say, No, well, you gotta have a big difference of a different mark, because you've got to Okay, if you want to make a true sort of treaty or get on or negotiations fine, but end of the day, you got to understand that the believers must be the closest to you. That's that's, that's what what the plan is trying to say. However,
there's another part and that part is that the the, the believers need to understand that you've got this situation, and it's going to carry on with with the Muslims being on one side and the non Muslims and so on. Allah azzawajal in discussing all of this at discussing the Al Kitab, and the people of the book and the Jews and the Christians, in the midst of that Allah says, In surah, number three, I number 113, he says, lays too sour. The people of the book, the Jews and Christians are not all the same.
They're not the same. They're not all equal. There are many different shades amongst them. And no Quran if you studied Suhana light you see the many shades Allah talks about. So for example, in this verse pseudo number 3113 Allah says, mean Allah Nikita, Amato, Karima yet Luna iottie la luna has to do, okay, some are different to others, you know, in terms of the worship fine, but then Allah azza wa jal has very established his establish that even when certain Muslims got ripped off, okay, so what happened is, this is the context of this, Allah azzawajal, you know, gave them that gave us the religion, Muslims converted over they basically became Muslims in Madina, munawwara they weren't
Muslim before they were following, you know, they were close to the Jewish religion before. And some of these people got totally ripped off. How, because when, when they were non Muslims, the Jewish people had trade going on with them. And they said to them, Look, you know, we've got this barter, we've got this trade going on and so on. And you know, I owe you this, I'm gonna give you this so the same to this person who's about to become Muslim, they don't know he's gonna become Muslim. The saying that look, the Jewish presences, I owe you this because you, you gave me this, I'm gonna pay you back fine. Suddenly, this person now becomes a Muslim. And it goes back to the Jewish person.
This is not all the Jews, this is just particular Jews in that society. So he went back and he said, Give me my money what you owe me. And he said, I don't have to give it to you. said why is it because you've changed your religion.
It's in my Torah was in one of my scriptures that if you change your religion, then all your transactions are nullified. I don't have to do anything with you. Now that was actually a lie was a fabrication a lot of reveal that no Qur'an, knowing the total reveal that but listen to this, look how Allah azza wa jal now talks about the Jewish people in the Quran. This is a lot being balanced, okay. And if you don't take all of the verses, you'll end up with a black and white one man listen to this, Allah says Surah number three, and number 75 min Al Kitab. From the People of the Book meaning some Jewish people, some Christians, man in top man who beaten pardon you are the like, if
you left with him, if you left with this Jewish person, a whole heap of gold, a whole heap of gold, you said Please look after this for me. You add he like he will give you the whole of the whole of the you know the heap of gold, he will give it back to you out of trust. This Jewish person will never betray you in his dealing with you. Allah said that first. Look how careful allies. He says that first some Jewish people, they will give you even a heap of gold he won't take a penny he won't even take a bit of gold. You know, some people you know sometimes you go to the gold shop here. And if you know they say you better wear your own gold before you give the gold shop to reshape it. You
know that trick, don't you? You know, when you give gold to the goldsmith, you better wait at home because sometimes the scales are dodgy because when you take it to the scales, it says something different. Okay, few ounces less or less already. When you raise it so you better wait home. Then you take it to the gold shop and then they wait they're fine. See if it's the same. If it's not the same, you've got a question but when you give it to them
To try and work on the gold and change the shape of it and so on to a different design, sometimes they give it back to you, and they've taken a bit of gold from it, a few ounces you won't even realize, okay, and it does matter is a lot of money. And if they do that to all the customers, they will, they will, you know, they will be making a lot of money out of this which is really ripping you off. But you might not even realize what what is happening. Now the point is, you've given a whole heap of gold to Jewish person, Allah says he'll give it back to you, you can trust him. And then Allah says, woman home, but there are certain Jewish people and there are certain Christians in
men who BD now if you give them one single gold dinar to look after
you get one forget a heap of gold coins on one lie you add de la que la Madame tala hakama, he will never return it back to you. Unless you tested him. And you were on his back all the time to get that one golden out of him. He won't give it back to you. So if you look at the Quran, Subhana Allah, it's given both sides, it said, Look, some of them you can trust them. Some of them you can't trust them. And if you think this is all about non Muslims being just discussed, you know, I'm sorry, this is the big point I'm trying to make to you. In this talk, which is when a lot discussed the Muslims, he was also fair in the Quran, you will not find the poor and discussing all about
Muslims in a positive way. No.
The Quran will discuss about the close believers the good believers in a positive way. Yes, the Quran will recommend the believers become better in the man in the faith and the actions Yes.
The core and we'll also talk about certain believers who fallen short, it's in different parts of the Quran. And the Quran will also talk about certain people who showed they were leading Muslim lives, but they had very bad traits inside them. They used to lie and cheat which we know as monastics are the hypocrites now to a lot of Muslims, and even non Muslim studying the Quran. They kind of take this as you know, well, these are the monastics the hypocrites, and these are the Muslims and you know the different people not always
the munafo the hypocrite that does not believe from his heart.
But he believes from his tongue so imagine somebody completely you know, they don't have any faith in Islam and on the on the front of it like Assalamu alaikum salam alayka Salam Alaikum you know the praying with us the same Salaam but he's a spy or he's there to cause us danger or his you know you get these reporters come down again right you know, I'm talking about Channel Four guy you know I'm saying or some other guys some fake shake, right? comes a stays with us for one year two years, Masha Allah Brava reverted or is with us big beard is witness Salah every day is Salaam and coffee shops and with the Muslims and how are you and what's going on for one or two years and all along
what he's doing is he's only here to report back so what he's doing is he's taking the information every day typing it away making it his article his book his report his secret camera recording the Muslims are god yeah that's going on inside yeah on the face of his like, Oh, I'm sorry for
other things I got ya. Caught you on camera. You wait till it comes on Channel Four.
So this is a true and I feel this is a room that's not a Muslim. That's clear from the Quran as well it's clear that this person is only there just for the show of it or just for a short while or just because you see some people come along and they stay with Muslims for a while first for their own gains for their own needs. They're only here for their own self they're seeing that the Muslims are probably getting something well I better be there to get it as well. Right? And if you ever have you ever seen that no will only give you a typical example. Yeah.
The funny one man This doesn't happen in this country happens in the third world countries that are sometimes I got it.
either people don't die for this. You don't like for example? Yeah. For turabi. Have you seen that many people like die to go to therapy? Like I don't know what to get them to get the first like you don't let me let me go to the frontline first. Have you ever seen that many people die for therapy? No. Okay, no straight up. Have you ever seen people die to go to human wait there even if it takes to wait there for three hours? Four hours. I want to get to that part with the hook like I said I want to feel elated. You don't you don't get that. Okay. People are not so forward in that. Okay. Eight Salah on the day of eight people do come from
Ad again people are just there for their ad like man you know when the guy gonna finish and sometimes they can't even wait for the hope is that right or not? The answer salame you're supposed to stand sit for the economy wait for the God now the same people Suhana law when the sacrifice of the animals have been done this in a third world country Yeah, they're like they're like and still like the like people who are waiting for a football match a massive football match to go on. Right? They're all over they're everywhere. They're watching you you saw the animal and a few animals that were watching that piece the piece that piece and then you know you've okay some of them are poor
fine, but you got to be fair, right? You're going to be fair, you weren't dying for tarawih you weren't dying for Juma you just said I came for eat Salah the same people who are Muslim gone that then nowhere to be seen further Asia forget it for Gary Brava even though de la he's got the musty there. He won't even go there. But you know, the day of sacrifice, I was there. I did it myself. So this is kind of chaotic is crazy. So you sacrificed and then you know you got to now now get this skin off. Okay, and get the whole skin off. And then you've got to now cut the cut the whole, you know, animal into pieces, right? suddenly someone says, Hey, hey, I've seen Bengali problems and
hola Hemingway. Who takes who's who's run off with the head
some guy in the midst of all the chaos has grabbed their head and got off with it
now you said it was the was the head gun It was a you know you got blood on your hands you trying to sell the thing God that people's Hey, wait. And then you realize that a second one gun
stop stay back. Stay back. Stay back stay back right you know we do. Okay, fine. So you trying to get into PC this data? Now? You're trying to put it into piles so that it's fair and square forever? Right?
Honestly, you take your eyes off the one minute window for a minute, man, you take it off there for a few seconds Gone.
Gone. I mean, literally gone is off pile of meat. They're gone.
You think your law I mean? Another thing I'll give you you know, this is this is you think swana law. What is this? Well, this is when Muslims are not being proper Muslims. And they've got they've got a bit of hypocrisy inside them where they're there for the gain of it. They're not there for the sacrifice the no because the Quran says Leanna de la la Omaha Villa de Maha Wallachian, Aloo, taqwa, min comb. This is Surah Hodge, I think it's around number 37. Allah says, look, the meat won't reach Allah, the blood going reach Allah, but the God consciousness that God fearing heart you've got that will reach Allah alone. Watch how fearful you are allowed. Watch how aware you are of him. Allah
says the whole sacrifice does for you find but I'm gonna watch how your hearts are really, you know, fearing me. And being conscious. I mean, that's what allowed them to look at. And these guys are there for that now, therefore, they're made rough. They want them me. Not saying they want the barbecue later on and the curries, or whatever else they can do. And sometimes a whole leg goes missing.
You're like, Whoa, I just cut three legs with the fourth one gone. That cow didn't have three legs but
let's go for burger and people are standing around they know probably who took it but no one's gonna say anything right? No one's gonna say anything because they want to take a piece as well as they can right before it's distributed. Now forget that you know sometimes you know you think light I'm alive.
I've seen this it happens okay, this no one does monsoon season comes under the rain comes really heavy. Have you done what where would people be when the rain is coming really heavy down? Are you going to be out in the rain? Are you going to be inside the building? Were you going to be inside the building? That's good most decent people in the building except for a few who are out there in the monsoon rain they're loving it. You know why? Because today's stealing time they go they know these bangles the mangoes are gonna drop like Papa Papa from the trees. They know because of the month because the rain it's hitting really hard. The winds are blowing so it's gonna drop any moment
as they drop. These guys are in people's gardens, people's gardens and picking them up quick because no one wants to come out even if you want to come out or you can't even see them because of the amount of rain okay? And even if you do see them by the time you've got there, they've gone they've taken a whole load of mangoes and then you know yesterday there's loads of mangoes that you wishing are going to have those mangoes, mangoes and today you like
which jeans like a all those mangoes man, what happened? And you know to these people are there for the sake of Now look, my point here is that when Allah discusses the Muslims, he is fair again.
And he will talk about the close believers the goodwill
leavers, the weak believers, then he'll talk about the hypocrites like these ones after this after that stealing cheating, but he took them in their name is not believers. But Allah gives them a name of munafo, which is that they've got this problem inside them of hypocrisy. And then the real moon, I feel like the guy said to you, these are the bottom. Okay, so there's two types of molecules. There's one that that's that's got bad traits in him, he steals he lies, he cheats, he swears and so on that one, which is kind of still they can have belief in the heart Look, this one cannot believe in the heart, but it's very heavily fails in that in the actions that they do. And lower than that.
Are the real monastics the ones that never believed from the heart and always are trying to make you look like the kind of fine but inside of God, not a percent of Eman inside the heart. Those are the real monastics Allah discusses all of them. Now, the thing is, when most Muslims study the Quran, they kind of look at the the good believers and really, you know, close believers, and they judge all believers by that. And then the looking at all this is about Kufa and disbelief and so on and look how bad luck or bad luck or bad and so on. Without realizing that what Allah has done is Allah has also said to us as the believers, reflect on yourselves. Don't be like those monastics, don't be
like the hypocrites. And don't be you know, whenever Allah discusses the disbelievers, Allah trying to say two things. One is to the disbelievers what you're doing is bad. But also he's trying to tell us don't become like the disbelievers.
Now, let's step back a bit.
When you now study the Quran, you've got
non Muslims and disbelievers that are decent, like the one I just mentioned, now you give them a heap of gold, he'll return it back to you, he's not there to fight you. He's not there to cause problems for you. He's a trusted non Muslim, this is from the Quran surah number three, and number 75, clearly, but in the same ayah, Allah talks about those non Muslims that cannot be trusted. So you got two countries, about the Jews and the Christians the same thing. Allah says they're not all the same about the Muslims, Allah says, they're not all the same. Because there are good Muslims that are weak Muslims that are very good Muslims that are seriously weak Muslims who are tainted
with the name of monastics and hypocrites. Now, when you look at the Quran, you can understand that there are further several further divisions. So what happens normally is this, let me tell you in our real world, in our real world, people think oh, my God, the West, the West, the West.
And they almost kind of make you feel like the whole of the West is there to do this, to do that, to do that really bad. No, stop, stop for a minute.
Yes, there are people amongst the people living in the West, who have got a very bad hidden agenda. But there are people amongst the people in the West who are living in the West, who are originally from the west, who've got a very good hope. I've got very good hearts. And they've got very good agenda agendas. There are people living in the West, because of whom we have benefited a lot in terms of how we are in these countries, how we live in so on. But then again, there are people who are living amongst us in the West, whose ideology is to make life difficult for Muslims, you get all sorts, and it's not a thing about well, the disbelievers they're going to have this bad thing rotten
thing about the bad. No, it's about us being fair. And when we look at the poor, and we will find that problems lie in all quarters of people, and good people in every community of people. You guys, do you guys understand that if you want to really be fair, you have to be fair like this. So for example, even if you look at any political situation, in any country, you won't find 100% all the people in that country all agreeing on on that one thing, you won't find that
and you have to differentiate between the people who are in power and the people who are not in power because the Quran does that. So behind Allah allows you honestly if you look in the Quran, the Quran will do that. It will talk about those who are in power. And we've got the agenda who's trying to do something to you and those who are not in power, and even those who are in power, Allah says they're not all bad.
If you look at surah number 48 number 28. A lot of the bad one the worst one of the worst criminal governments on this earth, which was the government of Iran.
Pharaoh and in the midst of that analysis of Colorado aluminum in Alif round there was a man who was amongst the family of round amongst his counselors amongst his close ones. But he was hiding his demon Yak to him and he was hiding his Eman yet he was telling fear around and is men look guys are you serious you want to go after musala this? Are you serious you want to kill a man who's just saying my load is a lot
easier who cares even family he can be boo guys if he's telling you a lie, then his life will befall him. When you're casada can you sivakumar de la da to combat you know what if Moosa is telling the truth, then part of what he's promising will be for all of you Do you realize that if he's telling the truth that there is going to be destruction coming along if you don't believe in his message, then part of it will come and afflict you got to do the maths properly. Now look, so Hannah law, a man who's outwardly caffeine, inwardly believe, as I would is disbeliever inwardly his believer discussed in the Quran amongst one of the worst regimes in the history of mankind, which was
surrounds, you know, regime. Now, why the Quran has told us this is because you've got to be able to differentiate. And if you look in the Quran, you'll find Savannah you'll find your own who was one of the worst, but his wife is a believer. And in our world would we ever think like, you know, that leader always bad? Oh, yeah, they're all bad. Is all families bad? And he's all plans. But no, no, hang on a minute. The Quran told us to be fair, with people that I'm telling you. Like, for example, even if you look at,
you know, Tony Blair's own family members, some of them are very different, very different to him.
I'm telling you from historical records of his own family members, some of them are very different to him, his policies and what he's done. Okay, now, all I'm trying to say to you is we've got to have this mind that we cannot treat this as all black and white and, and you know, one phrase that gets used again and again, which throws a lot of our youth into trouble, which they can't differentiate between these because if you give all these verses in one light, most of our youth will be, you know, affected by this and say, you know, it's true. The Quran says, Don't make them your allies. Quran says, You got your religion, I've got mine. Yeah, the Quran says look at the
Quran says they'll never return your money back to you. The Quran says this, if you give those passes the verses without making the balance, they will fall into a trap, which is what I mean the phrase that's used again and again, this is a true phrase that was made up by the scholars of Islam. And you got to understand the time it was made as well and you got to understand the context of where all of this comes from. They use the term Allahu Allah wa Bara
Okay, you must have heard this phrase somewhere and if you haven't, then listened to it now this is beginning of Surah Tauba. Beginning student number nine, the concept of well our Bara which means your alliances, your alliances, people who you make close to yourself, and people who you distance yourself from and say you're gonna stay away from Allah, Allah means people you keep close to yourself alliances, and Bharat means you say I am acquitted of you, I'm distant from you. I've got nothing to do with you. So this again, black and white world. Now these verses that in the beginning of pseudo Toba where he talks about Bharata min ally what actually begins by saying, a declaration
that that Allah and His Messenger are acquitted from what is Allah He says, I had to meet a machine from the that the agreement that you made with the polytheists. Now what is the law talking about? What Allah is talking about here is
right near the end of the Prophet sallallahu polysomes time,
just four years before he passes away. He's 59 years old.
Muslims make a treaty called known as the Treaty of Ibiza, where they say we're not going to fight for 10 years. And they make a treaty with the policies with the machines with the people who have always persecuted them and they've tried to kill them. They've tried to kill them fine. There's look normal fight. We'll have a truce right now. And they make this agreement. Okay, that agreements supposed to last for 10 years. Within two years, after two years. The policies were the very people who broke the agreement because they started to fight with the allies of the Muslims. They fought with one of their allies of the Muslims, and allows messenger was told by Allah that look, the
agreement is over now, because they broke the agreement. It said, if you ever attack our allies, or if we attack your allies, this whole agreement is finished. Okay, that was part of the agreement. Since the policies in Makkah did that first Rasulullah sallallahu said we'll march on to McCann will take Makkah over and this is when this very
came down, because the policies were saying, hey, hang on a minute. We've got this agreement. Our agreement says we're allies. We're not gonna fight with one another. We're gonna respect one another.
How can you come and march into Makkah in our land and just take over this this city and a lot of you is first Bara to Mina la hora su de la la Vina, huttunen machine. Allah is acquitting himself from the agreement you make two years ago with the policies Why? Allah messenger acquitting themselves Why? Because it's nullified. You broke the priests treaty. Now it doesn't exist anymore. Therefore, there's going to be a takeover. Now, if you listen to the beginning verses of this, this surah, you will find that there are very, almost you can say, a very harsh attitude towards the non believers.
And a lot of Muslims Look at this. And they say, Well, you know what, these were some of the final verses. And this is how we should treat all non believers on La how la quwata level. And that's not what I meant. That's not what it was messenger men, because these verses again, are a text in a context. There is no text, without context, the very same people who are polytheists for a long time, Allah azza wa jal had many different rules for them. And what Allah is telling us is you got to decide which of these verses you will put into practice because of the situation you're in, you can always take these verses of surah, surah, surah Toba and saying, that's it. We're declaring a
distance from all the people who are not believers, you can't do that, because this has got its own context is specific to a certain incident, which, if you ever find yourselves in the same incident, the same things may apply. Do you understand what I'm trying to say? I didn't say that. What's happened today, guys, is
we've got a lot of our youngsters who get pulled into, you know, some of these wars going on across the world. through the internet. There are many issues that are many scholars who will quote these verses. And they will say, look what Allah says. And if you look at to the Toba number five, it says, facto Machina hydrogen atom kill the policies wherever you find them, who do whom, and it says, Do you grab hold of them, you beseech them you you ambush them from every side, La ilaha illa Allah this is these are, these are verses that are very specific to a context. Because these verses are talking about these very polytheists, who saw the miracles of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam
for 20 years, and they still didn't believe. And Allah said to them, Look, Allah didn't say just gone Do you know kill them or do anything? No, Allah said, announced on Mohammed Salah Lhasa announced in front of the Kaaba, that the policies now after seeing 20 years, 20 years of your miracles and the Quran, and they have no excuse not to believe in these because they're Arabs, they understand the Quran, they've seen miracle after miracle from your Prophet, they've got no excuse not to believe, tell them the performance in those four months, if they convert to Islam, fine, if not, allow them in the four months to pick up one of the belongings of God and go wherever they
want, give them amnesty. That's what the Quran is saying. But then if you find them after that, then this this this verse that I've just said, quoted you applies. It's a very specific context. What's happened is the scholars on the internet, and there's books out there, and there's our youngsters, some of them who have been brainwashed, are given these verses and they're told, this is how you're supposed to deal with the black and white world we believe is that don't believe us? Look, what Allah says is what you do is while our Bara we together, we separate from them, we've got to do you've got to apply this verse always to them in every single time, every single place. Laila Allah
that is not what Allah azza wa jal said. And there are many non Muslims who have also given Islam a bad name
on the internet and social media and even on the blogs and so on, because they've misunderstood these verses as well. Because they think that these these verses, these are verses that are all equal to all the verses of the Quran know, the Quran was revealed over 23 years. And it's got many different verses and many different contexts. Okay, now I want to put one more thing to the equation which I want this message to go out and I want people to wake up to this which is
that part I said to you about the Muslims
and you know, the law of differentiation the Quran Suhana law between the believers as well. And you got to understand one thing is that when Allah says min when Allah says believer
follows it straight away with action. Whenever law calls us as believers, he he called us Oh you believed you got to do this now? If you do the actions, then fine. You are now someone who deserves what the promises Allah has made in the Quran for the believers, because you've lived up to your belief if you don't do what Allah says, so Allah says oh you believe do this or you believe do this and Allah says the Holy Quran he says our phobia the radical Can you fulfill this part of the promise? I will fulfill my side of the promise is very clear in the Quran, okay. Now what happens is if you do fulfill it, and if you do the do the actions Allah saying, Look, man, when allows help
will come, you will be one of them who will reach who receive a lot of There is no doubt about it. And you will always find a lot always got a good way out for you no matter what situation because Allah said, one minute tequila is Allah Maharajah in Surah Surah number
65. And number two, Allah says whosoever is conscious of Allah, Allah will always find a way out for them. Okay? Now if you're one of those believers who's doing their best to try and you know, stick to their religion, then fine don't worry about things just depend a lot, do the best you can and you will find the help of Allah will be with you with your close ones and so on when that when the time arises. However,
if you really look at the Quran, and the way Allah has told us who the believers are, because there's a difference between us saying oh yeah, we've got what would you say was a 1.6 billion Muslims on the earth 1.7 billion Muslims on the earth. Our outcomes are key. We like this. Well, my friend when you made that statement 1.7 billion Muslims on the earth you've got to realize from the 1.7 billion
possibly I don't know maybe
point 3.4 of those billions are probably people who are very very far of the dean very far they probably don't even have proper faith inside them I don't know how many I'm just taking a wild guess there's probably almost a billion if you want to put it that way. There are Muslims out there you with Muslim names with Muslim family names with probably Allah Who in the cause Okay, hanging out down Allahu on a chain and Allahu on a ring or add to kursi somewhere in the business the Ola you know, the big big, you know, hammy you know something else no Mashallah big board in their business. And if you go into the house, in fact, Roger bananas club and fella come older, they've got a few
artifacts fine. But guess what?
They haven't got them got any of the actions of the believers. They some of these people, they lie, they cheat they swear they they're abusive. They break many laws of crime they're dealing with rebar and usury every single day. Whichever way it is they don't pray they don't fast or they do fast now and again. They do pray now and again something Ramadan comes up, pray for the first two, three nights is exciting and after is too tiring. Then they'll get back up again. 27 night Oh my god, I can't miss this night. So they'll pray. They'll go back down again. A day comes Okay, let me come up with my nice clothes on and eat as much as I can. And then sit down again till the next eat, and
then maybe you know, something else might come up Muharram or some you know, Ashura, maybe even 12 robiola world. Everyone's out there celebrating something about the Prophet living his God then do that. And that's it, then another Ramadan comes and they're up again for two, three nights or whatever. And that's how their lives are going. You've got to understand they don't fit in the definition of Allah's definition about a believer. They don't I'm sorry. You can almost say about a billion of them out there are probably like that. I'm sorry to put it like that. That there are many I don't know, it could be point seven of the billion it could be point five of the billion I don't
know, but I'm saying it's a very large portion. Okay. Very large portion. And then out of the 1.7 you know, billion you probably already lost with my calculation. You probably left with about half a billion okay. out of them, or the half a billion. You've got them who are trying Okay, they're trying to practice Okay, so the might have gone for Amara I've seen one of these Muslims they'll go for ombre they love it all Marsh on the comeback or got this miswak I've got the task bees. I'm going to pray now. You know, the guy probably got a bit of stubble growing which is really good. sister's got a bit of a job and the photographer
antastic carbide is not okay. But after two weeks, two months, gone, gone. And then that's only to look forward for my next camera, my next you know, whatever, then they'll go after a year, two years, they'll come back a bit bit hyped up. And if they do this two three times, then the goal for them, they don't feel anything because they just haven't built up any spirituality. They just haven't even discovered our studies. It was just outside artifacts, Kaaba, you know, being there with a lot of Muslims feeling hyped up. And that's what he was really, I'm sorry, but you got a portion of them like that. Then you've got others who martial law they do practice.
But they practice for about one one year, six months, two years and they're out again.
Then you got those people who practice martial law the practicing martial law. So on the outskirts of a you think much older brothers, you know, he's doing a salon so on. But the guy you think Laila Allah, his tongue, his anger, his problem with how he talks to people, or his o'clock and his character? Oh, my God is? It's crazy. He bagpipes people. He stirs amongst people. I'm talking about real people. I've observed guys I'm not talking about a comic book. Okay, I'm talking about real people as any man I've had to deal with these people. The guy prays five times a day never miss it. He'll never miss it. So Mohammed every Ramadan gives aka every Ramadan he fasts so he's got a
calculating the normal Danny gives it every year holy Ramadan fast and he sends loads of soft as well. But you know what? The guy is abusive. The guy backstab you the guy will is very politically You know, he says between people who will make this one fight with that one that one five down. I know why because I was part of this. He just did me with some others. Holy Allah. Seriously Yella? Why is this guy doing? I'm talking about some close people who pray five times a day who will never miss prayers go like this. And when you come across them, you think, whoa, you know, why is this? I had one smile. I'll tell you this. Right? You know, you can't measure everyone with the same
yardstick. Okay? I had two sets of builders once come to my house, two sets of builders. The first main builder who's managing all the other builders, the first one. He says, Sure. When you're gonna praise Allah, please tell me. Please tell me. I want to join you in Salah. Wow. You're like, Man, this guy's this guy's on it yet. So when I'm praying, I said brother, I'm playing the game for two minutes quickly. I'll do my will do a come. He comes. I think Subhan Allah builder is managing all the other builders. He wants to pray with me prays with me set out to dry my house. doesn't miss us or doesn't resolve whatever is wrong doesn't mean Maghreb. Subhana Allah and sometimes we sit down
at eating lunch or something or eating dinner and I buy some food and I'm sitting with him. And I tell him a hadith. And he cries I need a totally normal Hadith. And the guy he cries
right okay, he's the first one okay.
The guy doesn't have a beard fine, but the guy prays with me he doesn't miss a prayer and when he hears a hadith he cries and everything else Allah everything you know, I'm going to Haji says look, take the 300 give it to any any poor person in Makkah just give it to not have Subhana Allah guys giving extra sadaqa to people in Makkah as a final delivery for you right a person delivered that okay, the second guy, Salah time comes this new Bill Gates or this other guy had gone a new builder came okay. The second builder he seems to be praying he don't pray.
Juma time nojima
Okay, he don't pray with me. If I say howdy stream, it says okay, he respects it. But he doesn't cry like the first one. He's not affected by the first one. Okay, fine. Okay, but he's just a normal, you know, just normal things to talk about. But he's not into prayer. He's not he's not no beard as well. He's not into the gym has nothing. You know, he's the first one Juma. Oh my God will never miss. Okay. Now listen to what happens. The first one.
Later on, when he gets you know, used to it. You see everything. He's got enough money. He starts swearing. Sir, shouting starts being abusive to meet my family members. Right? start saying I'm going to leave this I'm going to do this. We'll do that he starts he starts causing damage purposefully. He leaves pipes that are loose.
So that you know when you cover everything up, you say everything's fine. You turn the tap on. Forget the time you know what he left loose in my house. He left the toilet loose. So when you actually do a poo Yeah, you can smell it from downstairs.
purpose for the purpose of left seeing things you know underneath the seat.
Something's not on purpose. Why? Because he's got a grudge against you or he doesn't feel this or that and he was very nasty. In fact, he ripped me off 15,000 pounds.
The guy who's crying? Oh, Christ
Mashallah, praise Gemma with Miss Whelan and a revenue of 15,000 pounds. The second one never prays with me never goes to Juma. Okay. never cried to any hadiza said to him, fixes my entire house. He does more than what he had to Muslim guy, okay, more than what he had to. He takes less money. He comes back again and again and fixes things. He doesn't demand over demand anything. He never was abusive. Never saw that never was, you know, insulting to me or my family thing. And you've done his job, and it's gone nicely. You think What?
You think what this is? This is where you gotta understand that look, just because someone's praying just because someone's practicing. You gotta understand. Not everyone's equal. There are people who pray amongst us, who are some of the closest to Allah. And some people pray amongst us. They come to the masjid to steal.
We ever anybody ever had this shoe stolen from us up? Hands up? Am I the only one here? Yeah, we're the only one it's not a non Muslims coming and sitting Brock is Muslims. Okay. Some of them who got a Muslim name a Muslim outside, you know, brown skin, you know, rest of the sheep, they won't be seen anything. They'll come inside of there look for shoes, they'll see they'll go or coat pockets. I mean, how many times in the machine people's cold pockets. You know, people come in the mustard. You take your coat off, you leave it to go fool, do you think this machine right? Who's gonna steal from the machine makes money you come here, you know, things are gone. Sometimes your coat is gone.
You're gone, coffee is gone.
And this happens, but I'm not gonna say almost like this. Because there are many Muslims who you leave your wallet somewhere. You live your life to wallet, you're watching the widow area, you left something very valuable. And somebody saw it. They'll bring it and they'll announce it or come to the committee. They'll say look, has anyone you know, happened many times, right? They say Has anyone left the wallet Not a single thing is missing. Now a pound is missing. Now credit card missing nothing. They're just given to you as as they found it. And on top of that, they don't want any thanks for something that our minimums are that. Okay. Now, my point to you is Subhana, Allah
allowed him when you look at the 1.7 billion, you come down to the last, you know, couple of billion. I think if I think they're they're really good practicing Muslims, you know, from the, let's say, if it was even half a billion, I'd say like point four of that billion again, are these people who practice but they don't practice problems in the heart still not in the right place. They haven't really transformed properly. They might have even kept the beards. They might have even won the job. But they still haven't got the heart in the right place. They might not have a beard. They might not have it. It's got nothing to do with the beard. I'm being honest with you. Beard is
important. fine if you want to follow the process and fine, yes, but I'm not gonna ever judge a Muslim by his beard or just a Muslim or by her hijab. There are certain Muslim women I know will never touch a man. Never touch them and allow a man to touch her. But she's got no hijab on her head. She walks every day out there without a hijab on ahead. I've met these Muslim women never allow any man to touch them. And there are certain Muslim women who whose job Mashallah they walk out you know, you think sister she's always looking down Come to the bus slowly he job comes off in a convertible bond and I'm saying like yeah, convertible on BMW press the you know, press the button
it comes off Yeah, you know, this comes off in the makeup comes on by time they've gone to college and full you know, in the in the restroom, they'll go there the pool the makeup on the whole day they spend you know, with non hijaab and make sure everything and then end of the day they'll come back to the restroom, wash it all off, you know, put it all go back to the bus by the time is converted back again. Yeah, looking down again coming to house Mashallah my daughter Mashallah.
And I know these sisters, because these sisters have made it very clear what they're up to other sisters made very clear of what they're up to. Now, I'm not going to say all Java system like that. I'm not going to say all knowledge services are like that. My point is, don't judge people just by what they've got on the outside. If you really want to judge believers, then yes, I'm going to give you you know, when you look at the Quran, you look at the definition of the Quran gives about believers, you'll find that there's a whole new world out here. It's not about a few believes it's not about how practicing the brother, sort of how outwardly practicing someone is, or how much
knowledge they have. There's some people that think wow, that guy knows so much about Islam. He must be someone close to a light doesn't mean anything. You can no I mean, you know, they say so. They say you know who the biggest color is today in the world. Biggest Islamic scholar, you know, the biggest Islamic scholars today in the world.
Because biggest Islamic scholar in the world
biggest the greatest Islamic scholar in the world right now who knows everything Quran so not to that bottom who knows the inside I know
is Emily's honestly Emily's he sat, he watched no holla Hassan, it least watched. Who's Ali Salaam Saleh la sala. It means watch Ibraheem alehissalaam he spent a life watching him trying to do something about his mission. He watched his smile in a cinema. Sam is harkaway sam used to run a Sam he believes was the one that made us rise and brothers go against him and leave him in the well Allah says in a shaytan Nikita Nikita he believes was there he knew us why salaams good words you know knew all of that. He sorry, Sam Yeah, Sam Zacharias and all the prophets then Mohammed Salah you think you please didn't know about Mohammed Salah. You think you don't know about this hadith
and Quran he knows the Quran inside out
And he knows the Hadees as well, but is the biggest scholar but that doesn't make him you know, the closer to Allah. So knowledge is important. But if you look at it from that side, you know, it's it's not the only thing that will get you salvation. So what does Allah azza wa jal say? So I'm going to quote you some verses very quickly and I want you to understand that this will give an overall rounded

Allah says, In al anon Susana Valentina am an affiliate. I will definitely help my
messengers and I will help the believers on the earth. Allah said this. Now, many Muslims today ask the question, why is in Allah as hell coming? Why are we in this situation? Well, you want to know why? Well, if you listen to my whole thing is because first don't create this black and white world. Number one. Second, don't think all the people who are disbelievers are all the same. Okay? And also don't think all the believers all the same, because we're all got various levels. And when it comes to the believers, we've got a lot of believers fine today with by name, but not everyone is living up to what the Quran what Allah has defined as believers according to Quran. And you know what? When
you really think about it, you think Subhana Allah, no wonder, no wonder Allah has not given that victory tool, those 1.7 billion, you know why? Because many of the 1.7 billion already are drinking or they're gambling, or they're playing horse racing, okay? Or the horses their own, you know, some of the rich Arabs, you know, they, they own the horses, million ban horses, okay? Or they are cheating or they're trying to cheat people on on eBay, or they're trying to cheat people on online transactions or they're trying to cheat, you know, all the time be abusive to their family members, or neglectful of their duties, or they've got bad character or the language cheating or they
couldn't care less about who the monk because they just want money for themselves. Or the one you know, they'll they'll even dishonor a woman for her dignity because no one was watching them.
Whatever the case is, or they're sitting there privately watching things on their screens, which is hot on and listen to things in the ears, which is haram, in the clubs and the, you know, whatever, you know, places you've got, where they're dancing and dining, and they're clubbing and dating and whatever else it is, but you know what, they've got a Muslim name, that Muslims if they're already doing that before the victory, what do you think they're going to do after the victory? If Allah says today, okay, I will give all the Muslims in the world right now today, even today, all of the victory all the country's victory.
there'll be 10 times worse,
and allows waiting for whatever reason it is so that the time can come where he can give the Nusra and the help to the right believers. And Allah is going to create the right situation the right moment for that however he does it. So as fellow Muslim brothers and believers, may Allah azzawajal give us Sabbath and give us stability in this religion. Lazarus will give us an understanding of the Quran properly, May Allah give us give us a balanced understand the Quran, Allah Allah azza wa jal give us, you know, patient in these times, May Allah give us a clear understanding of why Allah decides not to act right now. And you should be clear from this talk. That is because there's a lot
more going on than the black and white picture that people point out. I hope that was beneficial is that my head? Now I'm going to open up to any questions that you got, yes.

Every man has a baby boy inshallah.
inshallah inshallah. Yes, this is the brothers asking for us to make a draw for the people around the world, especially for people in hollobone Aleppo at this moment and Azerbaijan, you know, relieve them from the zulum and oppression that they that they I believe in brothers and sisters are going through at this moment I'm in Sharla may will make a big laugh of that yes what yes
you put it out there you forgot.
What else can you give them
For me, whatever, is
the what when you mentioned about is media providing it justified? That is wasteful by eating that sort of dream is psychological the person say and then somebody?
Can anyone Just tell me his actual question?
For for a particular occasion, have a hard time or something not because not because it's easy. It's not easy.
thing is look, Qurbani when we say the Qurbani over here is to do with the Ebola ha, so you're not talking about eight one, right? Another way that you have another one. Okay, so So look, it depends on the function they're doing if they if they're actually sacrificing an animal because of the wedding or because of some other occasion.
well, the thing is that once you've got Kobani done, then the meat can be given to your own family members if you want to have it. The one thing is if you want to eat it as your family's you can, if you want to eat it as your friends you can. And if you want to all agree together, say, look, we've done a corvara Let's store the meat for the wedding that's coming up, you can do it, there's nothing wrong with that. There's nothing wrong with that there's not a specific thing that you must know. Obviously, you have to give to the poor people as well. But there's no specific thing that you must eat it at that time or something, you can store the meat and you can use it for other functions.
That's fine as long as people agree. But if it's if it's something where people need the meat at the time, then you should give it to them because that's the whole point where one of the points that we sacrifice it for
Yeah, it's up to them they can if it's their sacrifice, and is their family they can decide what they want to do with it. That's fine that's up to them. They can decide they can decide whether they are going to move on because we're quite late today.
Let me let me let me go to somebody else because I know there's a number of people waiting inshallah sorry.
Many of the Sahaba even on the back reading like a little more expressing a fear that they themselves were not but there's also quite a well known story boy Hamza la Robbie laquan, who walking through the streets declaring that he's funny enough, but lo you mentioned about things not being black and white. So
Okay, so what what the brother is asking for the sister sake is that, you know, the allow nun or the Aloha and also handled on one case, at certain occasions question themselves whether they were more natural, so not whether they were hypocrites or not. So the brother is asking what is the actual specific understanding of this? So the Hadith goes where the Protestant alarmism is not seeing handleiding is gathering for a while he inquires about him, I will walk out of the lung, he's he volunteers to come find him. He finds a burger one finds him well, the law. And the law says I become a hypocrite. This is why. So hunger law says when we are when we are with handler, the alarm,
he says that when we are with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And he speaks to us about gentlemen, gentlemen, if it feels like German gentleman right in front of us. But when we go back to our families, and we enjoying ourselves in the you know, the normal family life, then that whole thing disappears. Okay, so I'm feeling like, I'm hypocrite, because you should have stayed the same way we felt in the province of gathering, we should have felt at home as well. So because of that lack of, you know, the lack of feelings that we've had in the two gatherings, they question themselves, and we walk out of the lawn wept with handle on the lawn, and both of them came to the process of
blossom. And both said, we become hypocrites. And then the problem is a lot. Allison explained, he said, this is gonna live in more or less rounded words, he said to them, that this is not hypocrisy, he said, these are this is natural for you to feel like this in my gathering will be natural. And when you go home, then you will have a different situation. And he said, satin facade. And he said, one moment you will have to be in this case, one moment, you will have to be in that case. And he said, if you had been in the same situation and the same state as you find yourselves in my gathering, then the angels will never have left you alone, they would have been with you on the
street side, they would have been with you, even when you go to bed as well. I mean, you'd be in a different state altogether. But because we're human beings, we have to have these differences in our states of heart. Now, this was a question they had about themselves. And even our moral dilemma is very harsh on themselves to say have I got a boxer. And clearly he didn't have a proxy. He was he was people trying to be very cautious overcautious about themselves to make sure that they don't have an ounce of that inside their lives. So one of the famous ones is when
Omar the Alon, who asks, one of the Sahaba of the alarm had minor halifa, who was known as the person who kept the secret of the professor lonesome, and it was he was told about the 300 plus monastics of Medina. And Omar said to him said, I'm not going to ask you to reveal to me the whole list but I'm going to ask you whether my name is on that list. And he said no, is not on that. And he was happy with that. So it clearly shows that he wasn't a hypocrite. But all of this was so that the overly harsh on themselves to make sure that they're not falling short in anything. That's what
any any other person that's got it somebody had a question on the round you know
just just wasn't anyone has got any other question now
is your question Do we have something else Kubernetes and I'll take it privately after this gather inshallah. inshallah. Brother Diwan
is up and I'll see you 18th of January Sharpies. Put that in your diary.
