00:05:23--> 00:05:36

for me to be able to be part of this project. So hamdulillah for the for all of our viewers. You may you may notice that a year ago and one second Akiko.

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

Just changing something awful. Okay.

00:05:43--> 00:05:44

Go for it. So

00:05:46--> 00:05:51

a year ago, we were on the show Alhamdulillah and we were talking about

00:05:53--> 00:06:07

TDR and I'll teach you all by the campaign, and Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah I must start off by thanking everybody all of the Schneider gave me with that time was able to Ischia followers.

00:06:08--> 00:06:49

And subhanAllah we came on the show. And we basically shared our our plight, our mission, and Subhanallah, we launched the budget campaign, and with this launch of the budget campaign idea was to bring the community together to facilitate for the growth and the continuation of the organization from one Ramadan up until the next. And that's what makes this so special for me, because it's the next Ramadan, since we will you're launching the campaign for Hala. Now we have the back of the support of our community, our Hamdulillah, to show everybody and to remind everybody about that step you took with us last year, and that Subhanallah has resulted in growth. And it has

00:06:49--> 00:07:02

resulted in the fact that you've carried and assisted the growth of an institution from one year to the next. And then what makes it even more special this evening, is that the actual budget campaign itself has grown. And

00:07:03--> 00:07:43

in our small way, last year, the concept of unity. So we called on, you know, we weren't looking for one donor or one person, we were calling on the community, we saying, Listen, it's our project. That's our mission. It's our deen, it's our Quran, and we want to pass it over from one generation to the next to excellence. And the concept was let's do it together. And we had Subhanallah some of the viewers we hear from other platforms as well, people were coming together to sign up 50 rounds a month. And then the quality time the the campaign was 313 people to donate 313 rounds. And hamdulillah people came forward with a 313 rounds with 500, just 50 rounds was what anything, And

00:07:44--> 00:07:55

subhanAllah the growth we that we saw over this period, it was so inspiring for us that when my sister while my father, who thinks he's going to be joining us shortly,

00:07:57--> 00:08:33

she came to speak to me a bit about some of the challenges that they were experiencing within the organization. And then I said, You know what we did this thing that helped. And this is what we did. And we gave them a blueprint of what we did, and the outline of it and whatever, whatever. They took it we worked on it together to create, you know, a similar type of campaign. But obviously, that's slightly different objectives. And you know, why am I a bit of a different style to it and whatever. But Hamdulillah we then launched the moonlight campaign. And then we saw the growth for comedy Institute. So now we add off the back of that one campaign that is known as the TTR within so the

00:08:33--> 00:08:55

growth of Tito and Nickelodeon comedy Institute, me myself and Malema said that we said you don't want me. Let's keep doing this. Let's keep working with people to work with Alma. And subhanAllah. You know, then I met with Nizam, who's when you say collaboration and teamwork and working together, and then we go and sit still in the tea. And

00:08:58--> 00:09:03

and I didn't even get Actually Actually, I want to bring him in. Yeah, what are you doing?

00:09:05--> 00:09:12

I think I was gonna get to that. But I want you to say, Could you sit down you're all comfortable. This is not this is the artsy throw.

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

You done play nice.

00:09:19--> 00:09:41

I think I think we want to start off by saying we're really grateful to Ahmed and the TTR. Team for for for getting us involved in this project. It's an amazing project. It's the Al Baghdadi campaign is something truly, truly remarkable. And for the people who who's been following our journey at fusion, you'd know that I don't need a second invitation to speak about the fusion Nemec foundation.

00:09:42--> 00:09:46

It's something I'm very, very passionate about. But with this particular campaign,

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

I just feel that that I want to push this campaign even harder because it's not just about fusion. It's not just about DTR. It's not even just about the six organizations that has come together in this collaboration

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

but more over and above that. It's about the one donation and multiple rewards opportunities for our donors to be a part of and it's amazing opportunity. Do you mean one donation multiple rewards. So that's the, that's the tagline of our campaigns by that campaign, where we encourage our community to make a donation to one account so that it can benefit six organizations, which can make a real impact. And we'll probably discuss these organizations a little bit in detail, but each organization has a special and unique niche that they serve in terms of the the UMA Alhamdulillah. From seeing to orphans and vulnerable children to educate the learners and students of Deen to focusing on Mothers

00:10:48--> 00:11:02

and then young kids and feeding communities. So one donation will ensure that all of these projects are sustainable in sha Allah, and you get rewarded for all of them in sha Allah, it sounds like Riba. Hello, hello.

00:11:03--> 00:11:04

That's a smart investment.

00:11:06--> 00:11:07

You must be careful what you say.

00:11:09--> 00:11:12

People are going to take you seriously what I'm talking about.

00:11:13--> 00:11:15

addressee I'm gonna bring in

00:11:16--> 00:11:17

another Oscar

00:11:20--> 00:11:24

Wait, wait, you turn young men. The eldest is speaking.

00:11:25--> 00:11:25

00:11:40--> 00:11:43

00:11:45--> 00:11:49

complaint from the biller. Your brother's giving me a hard time so the you complain.

00:11:51--> 00:12:04

Your breath is giving me a hard time. But you know, we take it on the chin. I want to bring you in here. He's talking about Halal Riba. What nonsense is this? talked in Canada. He is listening.

00:12:07--> 00:12:16

You Oh, you're good. You're gonna tell us about this. This campaign from your side? And shall I believe you involved as well? Yes. And have you learned how many?

00:12:18--> 00:12:21

Firstly, I'm grateful to hear

00:12:25--> 00:12:26

from my side

00:12:28--> 00:12:28

that is the

00:12:30--> 00:12:30

one

00:12:35--> 00:12:38

we can hear you. Yeah. That sounds fine. From outside.

00:12:39--> 00:12:41

We just see something quickly.

00:12:43--> 00:12:44

Sound is just

00:12:47--> 00:12:47

doing something.

00:12:49--> 00:12:51

Now, let me see. Let me check now. How's it now?

00:12:55--> 00:12:55

Okay.

00:12:58--> 00:12:58

It's much better.

00:13:00--> 00:13:03

Okay, carrying on from I said, I'm

00:13:04--> 00:13:14

really excited also to be able to have this opportunity. And as my brother mentioned, the idea really came about last year

00:13:19--> 00:14:06

came about last year, when we had quite a problem and Hamdulillah COVID Institute was forced to run as an online institution for the very first time which worked, it actually worked well, how they let the problem was when lockdown ended. And we needed to get back into the masjid. And we realized that we just weren't set up for it, we didn't have the right equipment, infrastructure, you know, and what happened during the lockdown period was, you know, Hamdulillah, but the permission of Allah, you know, madressa had students coming in from various parts of South Africa and various parts of outside of South Africa as well. hamdulillah and so we were sitting with all our, our students are

00:14:06--> 00:14:37

international students, and pretty much stuck in the sky, and we weren't prepared to leave them behind. And so we needed to come up with something, to raise enough funds to be able to purchase the equipment that we need to be able to go back to our to massages, to to massage that we operate from, you know, and have all our classes running, whilst waiting for both our students in Cape Town, and, you know, those online as well. And so Subhanallah we had a good chat, and

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

you know, the same equally funny region, you know, they are experts in every field. And I think on my side, so hello. We knew what we knew at the time, but when it came to like fundraising and all of those things, we were just at a loss. And that's when you know, TTR came in and my private sat with me and shared some of the things that

00:15:00--> 00:15:29

Add with the Biden campaign and to handle the growth of our institution from last year online and oversee Ramadan. It's just It's been amazing and Hamdulillah. And then we've set the CEO again to discuss, you know, some plans, so that we can, you know, make it through another year, Inshallah, the idea came about to just, you know, she what we are doing with other organizations as well. Insha Allah says, We can have like the same kind of successful for everyone out there. So

00:15:32--> 00:15:54

I must jump in. Yeah, we known each other for quite a long time. Actually, I don't know if many people would know that we go way back to the good old data in days. But we don't, we don't often get the chance to connect. And it's a real pleasure having you on the podcast, Allah bless you for for your good work that you do. But I'm gonna have to put you on the spot quickly, man, it's just, you know, that's just

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

math,

00:15:57--> 00:16:05

I want you to tell us what was the most inspiring story of sadhaka that you've ever heard, that you'd like to share with us?

00:16:07--> 00:16:10

The most inspiring story of Sadako

00:16:11--> 00:16:14

or that you've witnessed or been part of.

00:16:17--> 00:16:26

So Hannelore, I think, there are a few that come to mind, actually, a few that come to mind. And one I was actually thinking about today.

00:16:27--> 00:16:31

You know, it's Ramadan, so even our next two screened, so

00:16:32--> 00:16:39

what I've done is, I usually don't travel with cash, right? I just use my code.

00:16:40--> 00:17:18

But then I started making change and keeping cash with me, you know, in my bag, and not even in my purse, because some you don't want to stop with the robots enough to ends up in, you know, everything involved in. So I put the cash in a place where it's easily accessible for me, so that at any point, you know, if someone needs something, or even someone comes to the door, and you know, they want something, whatever, then I can just reach in. And because it's broken up into maybe smaller portions, I just made this intention to try and keep all the time, instead of maybe just giving up giving ones off now, and then so on. So I was driving today. And this person comes to the

00:17:18--> 00:17:38

door, and I reach into the space, and I've got so many hours in Hungary, lack of the person and everything. And I was just thinking about soda. And I was thinking about, you know, what is the most valuable kind of soda, you know, that one can make. And I actually remembered the Darina team.

00:17:40--> 00:17:55

We had a function once a few years ago, it was all alumni and their name Institute was in need of some assistance at the time. And then I filled in a table to form back then. And it was 450 Rand a month, right? And

00:17:56--> 00:18:35

it's 100 was an amount that I don't feel, you know, because it's only 15. And that is the amount I could afford at the time. And so it goes up every month. And but I don't feel it. And sometimes I don't even see it because I don't always take statements or my personal statements. I don't always check in you know? And so Hanalei was just thinking of the growth of the institution, and I was thinking about the amount of students graduating and I was thinking about the amount of students who have come from their nerine, you know, now running their own institutions, and the students who are maybe not ready learning institutions, but you meet them along the way, you know, bump into them on

00:18:35--> 00:19:04

the road, and you'll find out that that the children are now not just focused on the academic side, but they are learning to understand the Quran as well. This one son is now memorizing Quran that one's daughter is she's going to medicine but before that the parents ensure that you know, she's got this solid foundation in her DNA she can deal with and with understanding and all of these things, so yeah, all of these stories, and I was actually driving and I thought Subhanallah

00:19:05--> 00:19:20

is it really possible that also had a guy that allowed me to contribute 50 grand to an institution that has affected capetown in such a ginormous way so Heinola and I started thinking about every

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

study I started thinking about

00:19:29--> 00:19:42

apologize to Malaysia just got banned, or whatever learned the hamdulillah yo and in Studio online, just keep going it's gonna comment on every word you say the grammar over the top Now these can Google the on secretly stuff like I just keep going.

00:19:43--> 00:19:46

I know that he's been giving you a hard time already

00:19:51--> 00:19:54

there's a plan to defeat me tonight

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

you know, so So hello.

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

I was just thinking about how many people have changed their lives. And I started thinking about,

00:20:07--> 00:20:47

you know, the rewards involved. And I had, like I was driving, but I have to just, you know, bring myself back to the road, I was really moved by the fact that I had that opportunity. And it's something that I actually just spoke about, you know, I just completely completely forgot about it. And, yet Subhanallah and he never likes it. And, you know, I get to share in the success of that institution, which I was so, you know, with as so well, so huddle, you know, so, so yeah, that's just recently something that moved me there was of sadaqa sadaqa that I gave so many years ago that I actually forgot about, but I mean, if accepted, then you know, there might be

00:20:49--> 00:20:54

if what else fails, you know, wherever that circle is good. You know, you throw it up to us to handle

00:20:55--> 00:20:55

it

00:20:58--> 00:21:15

Yeah, that's the first one that comes to mind is a few but I think I'll stop with Bernardo okay. Hey Baraka Allah bliss May Allah grant that we can all attain the benefits of sadaqa I always think you know people think Ramadan South Africa

00:21:16--> 00:21:38

it's like a lot man there's a lot of institutions and so forth but it's almost like the Black Friday for for some institutions because it's the one time in the year when all the Muslims all of a sudden when they give the DACA away, when it makes other call and give revoke a three word sorry. But it also makes sense because this is this is what the prophets awesome did

00:21:40--> 00:21:43

like of all the things that he could become more in

00:21:44--> 00:22:20

he became more in generosity in Ramadan. He was gonna Android a nurse, or Android Miko, Luffy Ramadan and then even more so he was affected to become more generous than the rain bringing winds we used to spend the nights are the Quran in which we realize the Sun which tells me that yeah, okay, on the one hand, you're doing all this a bad qui Mashallah. Tocopilla Alexei. But that, that a bad must affect you on the inside. It must transform you as a person. Otherwise, it's just

00:22:21--> 00:22:25

firewood that you building up for people to calculate in the def Kiama

00:22:26--> 00:22:40

input on the on the weighted side of good deeds, because you're gonna make the same mistakes. But if if, if your good deeds if your Quran recitation and your Salah, your tarawih, and so on. If that

00:22:41--> 00:22:58

affects who you as a person and you you benefit society more, in whatever you do, you know, you're just a better person. And that's enough, but beyond that, with your money with you, if that's what happens, then that's exactly what happened to Rasulullah sallallahu

00:23:00--> 00:23:14

sunnah of his hand. So you can be in that same hand by becoming extra generous in the month of Ramadan. And I think you made a very important point. Like, you know, I remember our podcast, like,

00:23:15--> 00:23:50

just before Ramadan, when we were talking about preparing for Ramadan, and in you know, how do you capitalize on Ramadan and stuff and she'd like, like, be conscious men and like, be strategic with regards to our malman. And now you mentioned like, you know, that everybody should be doing something to you inside me. And I was just listening to the last thing, my father in law often said, like, you know, that sort of all else fails, you know, maybe that sort of God's going to be the thing that does this go for me or whatever it may be or grant me, you know, interesting to Jana, whatever it may be. But that's exactly. And then you mentioned this thing about a bar that actually

00:23:50--> 00:23:57

transforms or does something to you on the inside. And then I thought about when people when people Allah mentions in the Quran

00:24:00--> 00:24:08

about when Allah speaks about how often people will pass on, then they will want to come back and read the verse, the verse goes.

00:24:11--> 00:24:54

And for Kumaras Akane coming probably to remote, unless he's spinned of that which Allah has given you. Right. And if you call me Moroccan, I mean Coppelia. Yet, before this comes to you, for cooler, Biloela list you become of those who, after they die, they say, Lula Horton, Elijah and Karim Allah, if you just see me back just for a short time, just idling Kareem just a little bit. Right? Now, if you get a chance to go back, you want to thinking you're gonna do the most impactful thing you can possibly do. You're always gonna give you a quick chance to go back then what is Allah's 100? I say, what are they gonna die for? illogically Sadako welcome Minnesota let him then I can I can even if

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

you're going to Kinshasa go back, I'm going to keep that sadaqa but then what is unique and it just stood out to me now

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

When he spoke about our A para transforms the energies What are coming I saw him and I'm going to be of the of the of the why why did he say so? The kind of first placement because he obviously now witnesses in the Acura the effects of Sadako and that's why he makes his choice that when he goes back of all the things that he can do the one who's going to choose he's gonna go to southern Salah Oh yeah, he's gonna be like me through that is what and it makes sense because that's the same thing that the people in Jannah are gonna say they're gonna say the only people are gonna want to come back Kimba in January see the like yours John and then they're gonna say a lock on you just go back

00:25:41--> 00:25:45

to say one Subhanallah because they can see what's a handler does. You know?

00:25:47--> 00:25:59

I think it's it's important that we understand that one of the most obvious effects of Ramadan like to see that your Ramadan has in fact

00:26:00--> 00:26:48

done something is based on how generous you are. This is not about how much you give us don't make the mistake. It's about how generous you are the Prophet system wasn't rich in worldly wealth since but he was described as the most generous of people now does that work? Don't you have to be rich to be generous? Then you have to be like a millennial for you to genuinely be described as being generous. Bellini maybe but he wasn't and yet he was the most generous which means that it is again it is a ha with inside it is an attribute of generosity and you must develop generosity within that type of person who has that quality looks for opportunities to give to be done to serve and giving

00:26:48--> 00:27:22

is not strictly linked to monetary No, no No, no no that person will go volunteer that person will will ask old lady can I help you that person will go check with the neighbors if they may be fixing the car so that they can go out and fix it that type of thing when a person when they find that there's going to be a wedding or whatever then they gather I don't have anything but I'm the I'm gonna be the I'm gonna be the first to arrive in the last to leave them in the wash the plates and whatever else let me know what we can do with that oh that person that's going to open the studio and run a podcast that's struggling

00:27:23--> 00:27:24

and get

00:27:27--> 00:27:28

even a cup of Boober

00:27:30--> 00:27:34

No, I was gonna join online doesn't ever come y'all get a cup of Uber

00:27:35--> 00:27:39

I think either of you disappointed use Uber you will get

00:27:40--> 00:27:43

lost open you long time. I didn't think you're gonna

00:27:45--> 00:28:26

know so so what I'm what I'm getting to is that we should all try to develop that quality man. It's got nothing to do with how much you have right now. And I'm thinking about the scenario we you know, the Sahaba we know how they used to compete right? So, so how was always competing in doing more good and being you know, more close to Rasul Allah and more close to Allah subhanaw taala and the one instance that comes to mind is when or the incident that comes to mind is worth the day that Amara Delano decides he's gonna try and beat save now Bakkerud ly no in terms of his charity, and the orbiting the the contributions towards this endeavor that the Muslims were planning and

00:28:26--> 00:28:41

preparing for and the acid novel comes with what Ebro what he looks at it now bucket and he realized I got more today and he's smiling and he's happy and he brings it and you know, a wrestler solarmovies think he is within the and he's he's happy because look the day up.

00:28:42--> 00:28:59

And then the Prophet SAW Salem says nope. Yes, what you have brought is more than what he has brought. But you wrote off of what you have and obika Aleinu Bruce everything that is just one second I need to get in here. Akhmad and Alima Fadwa

00:29:01--> 00:29:04

I want to read something to you guys. So just listen while I read it right?

00:29:06--> 00:29:17

It says Masha Allah may Allah grant success. And my all of the organizations involved in this program reached the set objectives insha Allah watching all the way from within the Haram in Makkah

00:29:19--> 00:29:39

OB making Tawaf in the after this for all of you insha Allah may Allah accept from all of us. In sha Allah may if it's on this dunya be the cause that all of you and your families intergender to feel those without reckoning in sha Allah. I mean, I guess in our Africa Africa too from Uncle Nabil and I just cannot come in there

00:29:42--> 00:29:44

I saw that message popping up. And

00:29:46--> 00:29:58

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

and saw that message. And so I want to ask the browser to make a special offer for me and my family, my father panel and

00:30:11--> 00:30:13

make a special offer for me.

00:30:14--> 00:30:23

I've heard what Duncan I believe has been through over the past few weeks or so. And please make a special dua.

00:30:24--> 00:30:25

I mean, you'd have it

00:30:27--> 00:30:33

today particularly in Java, you could I jack, Solomon, we all you can right.

00:30:35--> 00:30:36

Now hold on.

00:30:38--> 00:30:41

I think Malaysia if I can come in at this point.

00:30:43--> 00:30:49

I couldn't be we all needed to agonal not just for for

00:30:50--> 00:30:59

Nizami, but I want to hear from the brother and sister in studio I've made and Federa this is your father making in the haram for your causes.

00:31:01--> 00:31:02

Malaysia, can you hear me?

00:31:04--> 00:31:04

We can.

00:31:05--> 00:31:06

Yes.

00:31:08--> 00:31:08

Subhan Allah.

00:31:11--> 00:31:17

As we just needed a moment to spare myself to get us behind a lot. I think that

00:31:18--> 00:31:30

if I if I you know, on the topic of sadaqa being a different forms, and so on, given what you're able to, if I think about

00:31:31--> 00:31:43

one of the best kinds of sericata witnessed over the years, it's the investment of time. And I'm mentioning this because I think it's something that is slowly slipping away.

00:31:44--> 00:31:47

Because I was based at Hamdulillah.

00:31:48--> 00:31:54

My brother and and we've got four so four brothers and two sisters and Hamdulillah.

00:31:55--> 00:32:15

The one thing that our parents gave us was was time, you know, and I can't even explain to you the kind of time that is invested into us. I'm talking about for example, my father working a nine to five job he still does, but coming home first thing he puts his bag

00:32:17--> 00:32:50

down, right and equals me and you know how was your day and everything is like premium put on because I was memorizing put on at the time. When he says okay, it to me the lesson that you did this morning, because he knew that the new lesson that you read on that day, it's the first to slip away, right. So if you can sort of like retain it for that day, then the backlog sort of falls into place much easier. And so you would come home with a chocolate, my favorite chocolate, and it will put it on the table. And it's secondary for me. And even every mistake you make I take one bite of your chocolate, right?

00:32:53--> 00:32:57

motivation for me to always want to leave without any mistakes. And of course, I took on the challenge.

00:32:59--> 00:33:05

And I would sit in I would read and always me to get a Thai chocolate and I was a child. And

00:33:06--> 00:33:46

so you would go home, we would listen to me. And then you know, we'd have supper and everything. And I would go over my work at night or whatever. And if I needed assistance during the evening, I would get my assistance in the evening. And then I would ask my dad, and my mom, can you wake me up at four o'clock? I need to learn my work, right? hamdulillah my Quran teacher was very strict. So it was like, No, everything will just you know, yeah. We spoke about him one night in the podcast. Okay. So my father was working at four o'clock, and I would respect and learn my work for an hour. And then I would wake him at five o'clock, and then he would sit and listen to me until six o'clock,

00:33:46--> 00:34:17

we had to choose what do I just need to read out? So he would help me sit with me Listen to me. And that would be at six o'clock and then he would get ready for work. You know, so he sleep was disturbed and I didn't even think about it. But now that I'm appearance will hide a lot and my sleep is disturbed by my little ones. I think back and I asked myself, you know how how they do it. So when he needed to work, he needed to work but when he came home and he had time invested that time,

00:34:18--> 00:34:22

you know, in us and specifically in relation to the book of Allah

00:34:23--> 00:34:34

setting us up not just in terms of dunya but trying to set us up for success. I mean, he's giving us the tools you know, and a brilliant job I must say

00:34:36--> 00:34:37

Alexa

00:34:39--> 00:34:43

and I now know where you get your competitive streak from you're trying to get the chocolate

00:34:47--> 00:34:49

in fact, I was telling with my mother.

00:34:50--> 00:34:52

So my mother would also

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

she would share this rule in the afternoons when I was still starting my journey.

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

If the rule was, you would learn two and a half lines to memorize two and a half lines, I've seen eight years old. And she said, You memorize two and a half lines. And if you leave it to me with no mistakes, you can go and play outside. So I'll go to school, come back, and then memorize to an offline and as soon as I know it, and I could go and play outside, with my friends, and whatever. And so I would always come in and lead to an appliance, no mistakes, to an appliance, no mistakes. And eventually, I hung Anila, I was able to memorize three lines, four lines a day, five lines a day. And I was at the point where I was learning, memorizing maybe a page a day, and my mother would

00:35:41--> 00:35:45

continue to sit with me again, sort of off time, right?

00:35:46--> 00:35:55

When my father wasn't at home, then she would ensure that she was 100% invested in us as children, and that she was giving her time to

00:35:56--> 00:35:57

and

00:35:59--> 00:36:04

memorize Quran by playing outside. What Yes, but wait, I'm gonna tell you the baseball.

00:36:06--> 00:36:08

The baseball, my motivation was playing outside in chocolate.

00:36:11--> 00:36:21

But I will tell you the best part about Medina when I was when I reached the point where I was memorizing a page a day, and this was a few years later, three, four years later. And then

00:36:22--> 00:37:00

my mother would again, she would listen to me and the rule was, if you make one mistake, you can't go outside. And so she's listening and she's holding the Quran in front cover like this. And you know, as you're memorizing you picturing the IRS and you know, when you're on the next page, and then she's following and she's following you she's following and then I realized on the next page and I said, Okay, Mom, you suppose the page right? And she said, Don't worry about me you just carry on. And I watched her and I just noticed that she wasn't looking when I was reading, she's holding the most must have up but I knew where I were. And she wasn't looking day. And I found out later on

00:37:00--> 00:37:06

that the reason for that rule was because had I made a mistake, she wouldn't have been able

00:37:08--> 00:37:09

to pick it up.

00:37:10--> 00:37:15

I found out later on that she wasn't able to recite Quran today she's my student trying to learn

00:37:19--> 00:37:21

how can you tell us a story like that

00:37:24--> 00:37:25

yes, Allah

00:37:26--> 00:37:30

Subhana Allah so the time you know I think

00:37:32--> 00:37:35

you have a news story like that and just when you continue

00:37:36--> 00:37:38

it doesn't work like that.

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

Yes

00:37:43--> 00:37:47

you you're hungry you need to go to your mommy and kiss her feet

00:37:49--> 00:37:51

now we all do what is it hard we all do

00:37:54--> 00:37:57

that's incredible man Subhan Allah

00:38:02--> 00:38:02

like

00:38:04--> 00:38:07

I'm thinking now, too much talking stuff.

00:38:08--> 00:38:16

I was thinking as a parent that mustard was made you movement. It must have been well, maybe one time like you just think about the level of epiphany.

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

And she was the first child

00:38:19--> 00:38:20

of six

00:38:21--> 00:38:22

and then

00:38:23--> 00:38:26

I'm third in line

00:38:27--> 00:38:32

and there was no less if it didn't get into my time I do the same story

00:38:35--> 00:38:39

that you waking up at three o'clock and in our city

00:38:41--> 00:38:43

and then go waking up when I think

00:38:46--> 00:38:54

that Mr. Dixon is gonna go sleep again, honey, when I'm ready again. Come up again. And you know if I just

00:38:56--> 00:39:02

if I think that I didn't know that time. That's what he was doing for my sister before before.

00:39:03--> 00:39:04

And

00:39:05--> 00:39:10

my brother asked me to tell you a similar thing. And the mother of the most similar thing.

00:39:12--> 00:39:13

And

00:39:14--> 00:39:15

for me,

00:39:16--> 00:39:19

you know, you asked my dad to MacDonough you and stuff

00:39:21--> 00:39:27

that I was thinking that we sitting in we're talking about serving Allah subhanaw taala as dean

00:39:28--> 00:39:31

and making time to, to impact that

00:39:32--> 00:39:32

you're

00:39:33--> 00:39:37

eating to spend time

00:39:39--> 00:39:42

with us in ensuring that we were doing what you were doing and today

00:39:44--> 00:39:45

covered Institute is there anymore.

00:39:50--> 00:39:52

And it stems back to a mother who couldn't even read

00:40:00--> 00:40:00

So we

00:40:02--> 00:40:03

are not being

00:40:04--> 00:40:06

asked to continue to use the

00:40:07--> 00:40:12

like they just raised the children but look at the service to be

00:40:13--> 00:40:15

I'm not talking about that I'm doing

00:40:16--> 00:40:25

I'm saying like, how many ladies are coming in? My dad isn't benefiting mommy she said mom is a student amongst many other ladies that are sitting in learning

00:40:26--> 00:40:31

because of the time that they invested in the resources that they invested in ASEAN

00:40:33--> 00:40:41

we asked Allah subhanaw taala granted to grant us to serve the I mean I mean and there's a hadith that really sticks with me

00:40:43--> 00:40:49

we said you guys you guys how many kids wagon six and how many of you

00:40:51--> 00:40:58

want everyone to still busy though. But SFO completed into a slump as you

00:40:59--> 00:41:03

know one completed nine and the other one is on Twitter.

00:41:04--> 00:41:19

I know for you guys it's like a personal story now like it's it's your parents and you involved in stuff but I want to take the opportunity to just show you the listener that Wilma, myself included because I'm a parent I have a four year old daughter last year

00:41:22--> 00:41:28

she almost want the best for obviously, we all want the best for our kids. And it's hard

00:41:31--> 00:41:33

news I have united

00:41:34--> 00:41:44

stuff I got this thought on so myself I'm gonna get shot. But he's entered a course called Raising leaders last year that was a parenting course.

00:41:46--> 00:41:55

And in the last 10 minutes I realized quite honestly I realized that I'm far from worthy of of having presenters utricles

00:41:59--> 00:42:00

May Allah bless your parents and Allah

00:42:03--> 00:42:17

almost 100 allow for us to be something I mean, that's my thing. So it's so tough and they did it even before technology that we have at our disposal to that's important also to note because it takes more effort it takes more time

00:42:18--> 00:43:06

Subhanallah summit already would your obedience and my feedings and obedience because the lesson that I want to bring across to you today my dear viewers is that you need to be that if you want that it's not like they didn't they didn't know he's the likes of Malema Fadwa Solomon and have IT admin Solomon and the siblings. They didn't come from from like hopes and dreams you know. And Steve making his home address Seto and in Idaho and climatic and that type of thing they were raised with with an Islamic consciousness and this is these are the the fruits Masha Allah Allah increase in IQ you know my father, I'm a law just just to give you an idea of my father had arthritis

00:43:07--> 00:43:36

and arthritis affected him the most when he woke up in the morning, right. So that time in the morning when it's cold Fajr time then it's difficult for him to get out of bed and move around. Right now I got my first email my post when I was in my third year of study, and then my father would come wake me up for 5g So that I can be at the masjid so you can wake me up for 5g Then go wait for me in the car. Some mornings in a fall asleep again,

00:43:37--> 00:43:39

Vinnie sitting in waiting for me in the car.

00:43:41--> 00:43:44

Like like that level of sacrifice any any anything.

00:43:45--> 00:43:51

So so if you want that if you want the results of the likes of these brothers and sisters,

00:43:52--> 00:44:16

then you must make a little bit of effort in that regard as a parent like the major decisions or important decisions, you know, like the major ones have gone for the life of me understand our parents are sending the lightest to this crazy schools with as I like to say, with when they come home with more than just an education, an accent and the rolling RS and the Aqeedah that goes with it.

00:44:18--> 00:44:22

But anyway, that's another topic for another time. Just a thought that came to my mind now.

00:44:23--> 00:44:34

Allah always gives you what you want. Now so so we've been speaking about after the or during the parenting workshops we ran last year. We spoke about the type of podcast

00:44:37--> 00:44:45

it also wants to be yes and I said and then I said I want one my father's to be part of it because she does the raising leaders thing and other folks.

00:44:49--> 00:44:50

Listen to me.

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

And you invited me for some podcasts and never got around to going yeah, we never got around to starting to love it anyway. So um

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

My name is Becca, would you tell us how the OMA can help and be part of this amazing venture? We'd like to hear that from you in sha Allah Bismillah

00:45:12--> 00:45:15

Subhan Allah so firstly, Malaysia

00:45:17--> 00:45:24

that is a that is a blind move by the way. Like you come into the podcast first time, and then you bring like

00:45:25--> 00:45:27

that kind of story. I mean

00:45:29--> 00:45:29

that's not feeling

00:45:33--> 00:45:33

complete

00:45:34--> 00:45:37

like I was like you're not supposed to cry for that

00:45:38--> 00:45:59

yeah that's that's next level insane makes your heart melt like if you go and kiss your mom because she's your mom but I mean I would I feel like I want to go kiss you or me and give her like a giant ag Subhan Allah. Oh Allah please do in Ronda is a little better that men I mean,

00:46:02--> 00:46:07

before the Marlin walima, just before you you go to this project, and now people can open.

00:46:09--> 00:46:21

I just let the message go out to all of our youth. One of the project areas youth mastery and with teaching people with teaching the youth the importance of having a connection with the parents, no matter what they see it as.

00:46:22--> 00:46:24

And as one to tell us our theme.

00:46:27--> 00:46:28

Like I know your parents.

00:46:30--> 00:47:17

I don't care I really don't care what they doing. You do never ever, ever have the right to lose respect. And this on your parents, no matter what side your lawyer is, I think what I've heard all the excuses I'm working with us for more than a decade. Bring me any youngster I challenge you to bring me excuse you think I never before you have no right or loi, no one ever to disrespect your parents or to dishonor your parents or to mistreat your parents and you only shooting yourself in the foot. You're digging your own grave. If you're not having appearance that you're not serving your appearance will lie you missing out and you are potentially putting your asteroid stick alone.

00:47:18--> 00:47:25

Now that's thrown us through plus if we're gonna hear about if your parents are on the phone that's about it

00:47:26--> 00:47:27

in you're gonna see

00:47:31--> 00:47:37

now, as you can see the ACMA that there's an important message the we all echo that sentiment and

00:47:39--> 00:47:41

the beatings Yeah, appearance

00:47:43--> 00:47:43

ultimately

00:47:45--> 00:47:50

think also what what stands out to me about just reflecting on

00:47:51--> 00:48:16

the psycho the investment of time, you know, that my parents gave us but it really stands out is that my father never had wealth. So we grew up with just about you could say nothing, although we had a roof over our heads and Hamdulillah we had something to eat, but we never ever had a choice where like a standard toast with nothing on for lunch every single day. Okay back there with the maybe some peanut butter hamdulillah

00:48:17--> 00:48:49

so that was so little in the house. But it was always put on you know, and if I if I just reflect back you'll find that I find that my father although he never had money he never had wealth to spend on us. He took what he did have any spin that on us. So number one your time he always gave us down each of us you a lot of kids a lot to deal with. But he gave each of us time he said to me that

00:48:51--> 00:49:00

you know assisted us about our own journeys, whatever we pretty much needed assistance with. I remember my brothers were into soccer. My father was playing soccer, okay.

00:49:01--> 00:49:07

If your father had no other accolades, no other accolades besides raising him

00:49:10--> 00:49:11

that's enough for me to say to speak

00:49:15--> 00:49:18

else we need I was thinking like yeah, you're

00:49:25--> 00:49:28

picked up at the police station like I picked up.

00:49:30--> 00:49:31

Luckily, let's leave the forest and

00:49:33--> 00:49:36

so family show, so I had a low

00:49:42--> 00:49:45

and I know I know the one I school studio.

00:49:46--> 00:50:00

I know that story. And he was a teacher this I'm sure it's probably. But look, I asked the question first and then you interrupted even in other people's podcasts. You knew that that was not me. I asked my father to tell us how we

00:50:00--> 00:50:00

You can assist.

00:50:02--> 00:50:05

You can you know, okay. Okay.

00:50:08--> 00:50:25

Okay. So what I was trying to get at was the fact that even though there wasn't the finances at the time, you know, whatever else could be done was done, you know, just to support us along this journey, you know, so hello, today we are here because we have a need.

00:50:26--> 00:50:51

But I'd like everyone to understand that not everyone is able to support in the same way, you know, whatever your ability is, you know, come forward with that, inshallah. The need currently, however, is to be very clear, it's actually financial, you know, we love doing what we do. And we love to always share the success stories of Heinola but not too long ago,

00:50:52--> 00:50:57

when I was speaking to a project manager, actually, with regard to some of the struggles that poverty Institute faces

00:50:59--> 00:51:36

what was said in that meeting was Why do you only voice the successes, why aren't you voice the struggles as well and I set this to handle I was actually dumbstruck and I didn't realize that I never ever before and our institution is running for 13 years this year hamdulillah we've completed 10 Hot terms of Quran 10 classes of women went through the entire Quran worth understanding on a part time basis with so Han Allah and through all of this time, not once did I actually mention this struggles that I'm adresa faces to be able to do this you know?

00:51:38--> 00:51:43

That's like my book Osnabruck Hollywood you and accept

00:51:44--> 00:51:46

a massive accomplishment Michelle?

00:51:48--> 00:51:48

Lydia,

00:51:50--> 00:51:51

for the community also sugar and

00:51:54--> 00:52:08

also, hello, no dice were superseded, dice it all. So so for the first time, you know, and melody would the steamer brothers that I was actually sitting with Masha Allah trying to assist us during our difficulty.

00:52:10--> 00:52:52

What they what they spoke to me about was the importance of voicing the struggles, he said that there are people out there who want to be a part of the success of the institution, you know, and you don't know who is able to come forward and help that school, help the school, just get from that one point to the next point, you know, and so Hannula those words really got me thinking and just waiting to be clear this evening, you know, embracing the struggle, we are six organizations that have come together because we have a common struggle, you know, the reality on the ground, is that finances are needed to be able to serve and try and achieve what we are trying to achieve.

00:52:52--> 00:53:34

Inshallah. So in terms of people coming on board, number one is financial, we really do need that. But as I mentioned previously, it's not always the same for everyone, you know, if you're someone who can give us a 5.7 million Bismillah, you know, but in the summer, you can maybe only give 500 And you know, or a 50 rent or whatever that amount may be, the idea is to come forth, and support in whichever way you are able to insha Allah you know, and even if it isn't financial, maybe to contact us, make contact with us and find out on the ground, you know, what have the assistance is needed to really be a part of Inshallah, every institution's growth and success from the snowline, at least

00:53:34--> 00:53:37

inshallah to the next Ramadan, in one way or another in shower.

00:53:40--> 00:53:50

You spoke about, like, understanding the struggle, there's something I must share with everybody. We were once running another fundraising campaign.

00:53:52--> 00:54:29

At the time, when I was still working with Mullah Mohammed is the Navy Foundation. And we were at the different masajid. So you know, it set them aside these people that stand outside of the mosque, right. And, you know, when people come outside, and then maybe give them in whatever it may be. So there's a table outside the machine, obviously, for information if the owners want to know what the vote may be. So people are coming to the table as they leaving the machine. And we telling them about what it's about, and whatever it may be. So there's a lady standing me, but she's standing with the kids. And they, they they asking, you know, and the people are coming in and giving and

00:54:29--> 00:54:33

assisting and whatever it may be. And we explaining

00:54:35--> 00:54:54

and this lady after a while she turns and and I'm explaining to people that obviously as you're telling them, you're saying look, this is what it's about. There's the challenge and this is the reward involved in this, that and other and eventually everybody goes and then we must back up because we lost the reverse out reading and we start to pick up and this lady comes to me that was standing me

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

and she comes to me and she gives

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

12 and 50

00:55:02--> 00:55:05

and she tells me a lot from Maya FIFA

00:55:06--> 00:55:08

in evolutionary.

00:55:10--> 00:55:17

And it just broke me completely she said it VITAS next. I love it. Love it vertagear

00:55:19--> 00:55:19

And

00:55:21--> 00:56:05

it just, it just hit me like Allah knows our capacity man. And Malema voicing now like a target for the campaign is 5.7 million Rand. Right. And that's to serve six organizations from this Ramadan till the next. And TTR Padre campaign after the support of the community can come a year later and say look at what you've done. Like you mentioned earlier, for malema, that's a milestone they've reached. I'm also going to congratulate everybody who supported that institution because that's a milestone for Uma, that so many women are being empowered through the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala on a on a continuous basis, man, so is Uma we accomplishing a lot man, when people are coming

00:56:05--> 00:56:39

together, when we are assisting one another from from the smallest contributions to the biggest, and we appealing to everybody to give according to your capacity that Allah subhanaw taala has facilitated for you. And yeah, you know, may Allah make it may Allah make it a success. I mean, I mean, my dear if I do I'm gonna I'm gonna ask you for your last words in sha Allah and then we don't have to keep any longer. And again, asthma Brooke, Luca, now that I have a daughter, I take my hat off to mothers

00:56:40--> 00:56:47

across the board, right across the board. But then mothers who key

00:56:49--> 00:57:09

lucky enough to not make the phone the mother okay enough not YouTube, the mother, okay enough not to make the TV the mother or the nanny, the mother. There was my there's my goofy offerings. I do not care if you do any fatter we're going out of taking that off.

00:57:10--> 00:57:20

And then I go a step further. The mothers who managed to do that and run the entire household and still work for the families on top of it.

00:57:22--> 00:57:22

You're

00:57:24--> 00:57:46

looking at your next level that's like a lawyer and Avengers getting good sleep that evening. And I think it's important you mentioned that men the biggest people the biggest the wait, I'm saying that because I want the mother to be able to go to kids and now you're gonna Okay, can I can I just yeah, she can and so much. Awesome. Allah bless you, except to keep you sincere and humble and keep using it for is Dean.

00:57:50--> 00:57:53

Oh, didn't Matthew just spoke at him?

00:57:55--> 00:57:58

Yeah, your last words of encouragement before we let you go in for the go.

00:58:00--> 00:58:01

So hello.

00:58:02--> 00:58:06

I think that since you're on the topic of motherhood,

00:58:08--> 00:58:09

I would say that

00:58:10--> 00:58:17

obviously we are here this evening because, you know, all six of our institutions ever need that, I would say that

00:58:18--> 00:59:01

if you if there's anyone views, maybe inspired by anything that was spoken about, you know, make a sincere intention to achieve with your children to achieve with your families, you know, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And begin that with a sort of something that Allah subhanaw taala loves, and you give it sincerely with the intention and Nia and the DUA that Allah subhanaw taala grant you everything that you need in your life, to be able to become a better version of yourself, Inshallah, because time times are really tough, and it's actually getting worse, steadily, you know, becoming worse and the challenges that our kids are facing Subhanallah more than ever before, I

00:59:01--> 00:59:40

could say that they need really strong moms and dads, you know, around them, to keep them grounded and to keep them on the path to show them the path to keep them on the path and Heinola. And something beautiful that I would like to recommend is that if you just look at the opportunity, which had the museum also mentioned earlier in the show, you know, it's it's not it isn't always that we have the opportunity to give a donation. And it's being used in six different ways, you know, with upskilling, a mother, seeing to the needs of an orphan or vulnerable child facilitating studies of Dean for someone or whatever the case may be

00:59:42--> 00:59:59

to make a sidecar with the intention that you know, whatever rewards may come your way that Allah Subhana Allah grants up to your children, you know, because if you look at how we raise our children and the mindsets of parents generally these days, we always want to leave behind like a house for them.

01:00:00--> 01:00:35

For each one their own house for some parents, if they can show up, well, as soon as they're old enough, we want to make sure that they don't only have a driver's license, but you want to leave them with the old cause. And each one has got less than that. And it's really it's all material things, you know, which is good. And what look like us the ability to, to set all our kids up in this dunya very comfortably. I mean, I mean, just imagine the idea of setting them up in Accra as well. You know, when you make we make a donation in the near to Allah that any rewards that may come from this, give it to my son, so that whatever good he does in his life, when he reaches the door of

01:00:35--> 01:00:53

Korea, you'll see like a mountain of X ray goes, Inshallah, that will be a gift from me, you know. So in other words, what I'm saying is, let us use this opportunity to not just do and set our children up for the dunya. But let's see what else we can do to try and sit them up and leave things for them for the

01:00:55--> 01:00:55

vertical

01:00:57--> 01:00:59

appreciate opportunity, as

01:01:01--> 01:01:02

well, except

01:01:03--> 01:01:16

I'm also going to leave you with this thought and move the commodity in told us he says like, parents always worry about what's gonna happen to my children after we die. But hardly anybody thinks about what's going to happen to my children after the day. Yes.

01:01:18--> 01:01:21

Hello, anyway, they keep asking you to ask please.

01:01:22--> 01:01:24

Like, really, my name is Rashad.

01:01:25--> 01:01:27

And this is inadequate.

01:01:28--> 01:01:37

You know, your wife is very dear to me, and we've been on the phone at an event told you, but we are in touch. And we talk about Tesla often and

01:01:39--> 01:01:41

you and your family are in my DWIs

01:01:45--> 01:01:50

parenting podcast on the gods inshallah shall take a solid grotto.

01:01:51--> 01:02:04

Sorry, if my the we and you we ended back with you after I tell you that your father just told me he's going to the matter of now he's going to make the Saudi toe off now to carry out to do us for all the organizations and for me and for my family.

01:02:05--> 01:02:10

Yeah, for me and for my family, and that your program calls me need to change the lives

01:02:12--> 01:02:18

the path that aligns and prefers, I mean, continue the excellent work, Mel likes it, my brokenness, etc. So

01:02:19--> 01:02:20

now you can speak.

01:02:21--> 01:02:51

Yeah, Subhan Allah, and I want to just speak to our viewers a little bit when, you know, there's a lot you're going to do, if you make this contribution man, and I'm just I'm thinking about we talking about the struggle of parenting, and we speaking about, you know, be inspired by parenting. And the important thing is that people are struggling. And if you just take parenting, and you seem to everything from that perspective, talking about your you assisting parents becoming upskill, the China training program is doing amazing things. I'm using some of that to keep

01:02:52--> 01:03:31

some of the items in their toolkit for my own parenting Alhamdulillah. And, you know, so many have benefited from that it means the barons, the teaming, the stuff that's happening at fusion, and the couples that are even the coming together, and even yourself Mona being of benefit to them in that regard. So these parents D that are learning how they need to, you know, up, level themselves up to be able to live up to the generation to come. Then there's the parents who really gone. And this is the point I wanted to mention earlier, like you took all of those mothers, right. And you mentioned that different levels of struggle. While loyalty so much mother's the biggest when we actually did a

01:03:31--> 01:04:19

study in for marketing for one of our marketing campaigns, then we did research on who are the people most likely to attend the youth mastery programs, right? And what it came down towards single mothers that are working and trying to put a roof over the head for the kids and still trying to raise those kids and they want the peace for those kids in this world. And they often and will lie. That's the truth. If I must tell you how many mothers who are either divorced or the father passed away or whatever, but it's a Muslim sister that struggling with a child, even non Muslim, just women struggling to raise the children, men that are coming forward saying help me with my child. And you

01:04:19--> 01:04:51

know, the organizations such as using me commendation and Youth Law study and the daughter, they're working with these kids, man, and then you look at it from the perspective of those kids who don't even have that mother and father. And then you look at the programs that's happening at fusion and you see you see how they go fetch them at their homes, and pick them up in a taxi in and over Pokemon number will ever bring them to a workshop where they now meet up with us Marston and they're getting life coaching. They're getting tuition, they're getting a meal, and then they're getting from the take them on top of it. Fusion is making sure they have stationery also they have school

01:04:51--> 01:04:59

clothes, they have food in the house so they can actually focus on the school. Like, look, I'm valuing my friendship with him while I can

01:05:00--> 01:05:04

Somehow, because I don't know how much longer he's not going to be in a psychiatric ward.

01:05:05--> 01:05:13

Because the rate that he and his wife is going, that you're inspirational, it's insane. It's like incredible.

01:05:14--> 01:05:17

If you guys don't take it easy, often, yes.

01:05:20--> 01:05:40

I want to touch on something that Melissa Fadwa said, and something that is eluding to now that we should speak about our successes, but also speak about our struggles, women are speaking about this particular project where fusion and Musicmaster has collaborated. So Hamdulillah, we have about 60 kids from pong table,

01:05:41--> 01:05:56

men and Berg and Hanover Park, that as he says, we pass in every Thursday, and we give them a meal. And we've been youth, Marcy takes over, they give them academic support, and they give them life coaching. So that's the success of it.

01:05:57--> 01:06:03

The struggle of this, and Ahmed sitting there is that we didn't receive one single round of funding yet.

01:06:04--> 01:06:44

But we still continuing. So I'm saying to, to every viewer, that's watching, we're going to continue this journey, Inshallah, it is really an opportunity for you to come on board. And the support that we need at this moment as my clinic this is it's a financial support men, we are running with a program hamdulillah only Allah knows, like the books, that doesn't balance. Because there's no money coming in. There's expenses on the project, but the honey lemon, Allah facilitates, and, and we didn't and we had a discussion, we're not going to wait until the funder comes in, say, Okay, now we're on the project, let's run the project in sha Allah, the funding will come. And so tonight, I'm

01:06:44--> 01:06:51

sure someone will be inspired to say, You know what, 515 and a kid 60 Kids, I'll sponsor all 60 of them. And then we can really

01:06:54--> 01:07:26

welcome you to listen, you understand our busyness is because we want to do the project. But separately, we need to fund that project and then have to run around for fundraising and all of these things. So we move in with insha Allah and we inviting you to be a part of, you know, one of the one of the important impacts you're going to have when you donate to to any organization. Lit look at I'm looking at this meaning I mean to tell you all night at dinner, but I'm gonna take the opportunity to tell you know, you look good on camera.

01:07:28--> 01:07:29

She got on with a compliment

01:07:33--> 01:07:36

when you speak now, I don't look at you I look at your screen.

01:07:38--> 01:07:39

I do

01:07:40--> 01:07:42

cameras, but I don't know what the lenses doing.

01:07:45--> 01:08:12

Like, what I mentioned I was is navigating me like every time I come in here, look at what loyal of him. And Mullen has even asked me to do this. And I'm we're not paying or not to be here. And he didn't ask us to say anything. Yeah, we just told the monitor years of something happening. You must give us a certain a show. We're gonna do this thing and whatever it may be, but we'll loi every single time I come in here, every single time. There's an improvement. One boy, and you all know how to use.

01:08:14--> 01:08:19

I'm not even exaggerating, every time I looked in it today, I said, I don't even know if I could see

01:08:20--> 01:09:05

the screen is this but what am I alluding to? When I look at now what's happening? Now we're able to stream a good quality product to people from wherever in the world that's going to hear the plight of all and I know you guys were doing feeding the other day and we talking about the project your brother's name is doing and whatever it may be, well loi, just contribute. We talking to the people now that have something in the pocket. That's what Allah gave human. Now these are very powerful thing that's going to happen when you contribute. When you contribute and you have resources, then what Allah has given you, you given to the Ummah, if you look at our Assata our teachers, the Allah

01:09:05--> 01:09:47

has given them knowledge, Allah has given them the Quran, Allah has given them a hadith. So what are they doing, they're giving that to the community. Now, you might be willing to venture off and you studied and you whatever it may be, and you chose a certain occupation or you started writing certain business, whatever it may be, and your your string that Allah has given you, your your ability to contribute that was put in your life is wealth, then use that in the service of deem contribute because now what happens with those who have the resource of funding funds, and those who have the resource of knowledge teach, then those who have the resource of knowledge can not worry

01:09:47--> 01:09:56

about the resource of funding and teach at a much higher level. And those who have the resource of funding don't have to worry about time to teach and they can fund an ALA delivery did it again

01:10:00--> 01:10:12

Oh, they're totally the other night. Yes, I know it's late the night too. Sometimes you can follow me, but he's 2212 The viewers have paused, they can rewind, and they can kinda, you know, if anybody was like, you know, mostly in his ankles.

01:10:14--> 01:10:15

But still, it's late.

01:10:18--> 01:10:31

Like how things come together. I was telling me the other day, we when we set our targets for the Alba dinner, so we sat down, we said, given the target, you must be clear. Don't be shy to say what the target is, isn't full volume, none.

01:10:32--> 01:10:34

Don't be shy, what the target is, we put

01:10:36--> 01:10:39

the target it because if we hit the target, you bang.

01:10:43--> 01:11:21

If we hit the target, right, then the the organization's must have the ability to just continue to do what they do on a higher level meant. And this is what what what came about when when my father was early, she's like, we we now teach Quran to the ladies, we came up with a system that's been working for the last 13 years, but we didn't have to fundraise. Now, why must they go learn how to fundraise? Why don't they just say look here, this is what we're doing as a gap. How do we fill that gap collaboration working together? Now we plug that gap what happens now common for the rest of the year from now to next Ramadan, all they do is pump the energy time all into it and when his arm say,

01:11:22--> 01:12:00

you know, if you're gonna contribute and you know, we're gonna be able to work with you less. That's like working at least in the areas that is not necessarily our expertise. But when we can work more and channeled towards the area of expertise, which is benefiting people youth families, you know, what's happening at Project ma EDA, how the people are being assisted not as just only in Ramadan, it's sustaining people. So behind Allah, you're putting food on the people that aren't there yet. So you these organizations didn't get the ability to focus and to channel the energies in time towards delivering a level of excellence in those projects in inner services services to mankind so and you

01:12:00--> 01:12:10

know, I will I will conclude with a Hadith from my side I don't even know if we are concluding I was gonna say, Well, how can you just hijack the program and sumo in the conclusion

01:12:12--> 01:12:13

I'm sticking off

01:12:15--> 01:12:15

okay.

01:12:17--> 01:12:18

Perfect, you

01:12:20--> 01:12:21

know, you

01:12:25--> 01:12:30

just gone like actually not even complete I think she might even still be in in the in the back room and,

01:12:31--> 01:12:34

and your dad is also watching La Hola.

01:12:37--> 01:13:24

Hola. Now I'm at my point, again, I want to reiterate is that you can invest. You don't you don't have to be the mom that can do everything. You don't have to be the dad that can do everything. You don't have to be the teacher of the Quran. And the person who makes sure all six of your kids SLM, it's a lot of kids have. And you know, you don't have to be all of that. You could just be that super good Muslim, businessman, businesswoman or just a simple worker that works for the company. But you are able to reap all of those rewards with a monetary contribution. We have I've got stuff coming off my account on a monthly basis while Lila beam What is this? Like then it's it's an

01:13:24--> 01:13:38

internet account in in a lot of money. I mean, how much is your MTN account? Let me hear you in your your Vodacom account your your cell phone account alone, right? And what what is that just so that you can have a quiet toy to play with,

01:13:40--> 01:13:49

take a couple of photos and use the basic functionalities of hello and goodbye. But we willing to pay like two grand for that. You understand what I'm saying?

01:13:50--> 01:14:06

You can spend the 59 A month 100 grand a month. And like when we tried to I was saying with the data in Ranger. You can be reaping in rewards without even realizing that that's happening. But you're part of the success you're part of the story part of the growth.

01:14:07--> 01:14:35

The prophets Allah lo Allah was generosity was described as a what? As a rain bringing wind specifically. Because the rain, what does it do? The rain causes the plants to grow in the blondes of Idaho. I mean, the whole earth becomes alive again. Because that's the nature of charity. That's the nature of generosity. And that's specifically the generosity of Ramadan. That's specific. So So in light of that

01:14:36--> 01:14:41

I wouldn't look at I did not at all have less to do this podcast

01:14:46--> 01:14:56

I'm tired. is the last thing that's ever enough on my plate. I just wanted to spend time at the masjid with the brothers and ethika If and you know,

01:14:57--> 01:15:00

but I know these guys they all

01:15:00--> 01:15:47

My personal friends I work with Fusion in Jamaica foundation at the at the often madrasa. I know what they're doing, and I can vouch for them. So it's no problem for me to say, Look, you guys, this is the least I can do Bismillah. You know, I'm not saying this because I'm looking for things. I'm saying this because I can defeat my own demons to make something happen. So can you minutes just, let's dig in. Even if you've given to 1020 other organizations already as Ramadan, dig deep in sha Allah and contribute, I believe you guys are doing a because this is not big enough for you. So you're doing a grand pledge line to do Yeah, and other to see. But I just want to say I just want to

01:15:47--> 01:16:25

say we were speaking about financial contribution, and although there's a place for that, and there's a big need for that. But some of you watching, you've got a different set of skills, you might have 5000 followers on Tiktok, or Facebook or Insta, whatever. So you can use or you might just have influence in your workspace doesn't have to be online influence, you can utilize that influence to influence others to contribute to the fun. And then for every person that you inspire, you're encouraged to contribute towards this particular campaign. You get the rewards without having to spin around. Yeah, and this is alarming. Yeah.

01:16:26--> 01:16:29

No, I want to add one more thing. Before you conclude.

01:16:32--> 01:16:43

I want to say that, you know, you and your family or you know, your wife, your husband, with your, you can either have one or the other. Not both. So let me just make that abundantly clear.

01:16:44--> 01:16:59

You might be thinking, like so many organizations so much good to do. You know, he has a good opportunity to get on board with six, six organizations, just so you know, it's not academies, not one of them. Save money

01:17:01--> 01:17:04

by six organizations, the other crickets?

01:17:06--> 01:17:19

Yeah, I think it's important because I want people to know that I'm not rushing, yes, none of the fundraising that you did, I might be involved as like a personal capacity. Yeah. Or like whatever cool this thing

01:17:21--> 01:18:02

is like a sort of a celebrity thing might be that, but not not getting anything from us. I really want to see these guys win because if they win, my city wins My Ummah wins my people win, there's going to be children in the masjid is going to be Mussolini's in 10 years time, there's going to be people understanding Quran, there's going to be kids who are who have laid homes in the past, but they are now you know, by being contributors to society is going to be people with Crohn's, non Muslims are going to be receiving translation grants, because that's part of what I'm finding, there's going to be food on people's on people's love bearing tables, project, my dad is gonna be

01:18:02--> 01:18:11

like dispatching Quran every day, they're gonna be memorizing it, they're gonna be watching for the rest of their lives and teach other ladies potentially, so that water that comes down,

01:18:12--> 01:18:52

makes all of that grow. So if I can get the 2% 2.5% of that with my 20, then if I ran for 50, Dan, I want, right, we should all want so hang in, we must, we must even try to grab all of it. Like, you know, in his arm made that eluded to that one brother, that's gonna sister that's gonna give the whole 5.7 million, we must actually strive to be that mentor, obviously, you're that I want to get a hold of it. And, you know, we had the discussion, we said, look, what happens if we exceed the target man. And we really started to say, right, this is how we're going to do this is we the extra and over and above with channel two and how we can be of support to further organization. And we

01:18:52--> 01:18:59

spoken about other collaborations that we started to plan for, we're able to continue sharing this and we'll liner

01:19:01--> 01:19:41

we campaigning hard for this 5.7 million. But while law he thought objective of this campaign, I believe was already achieved when we could have six organizations come together and say Luca, let's all help each other succeed. Wally these knees I'm sitting opposite me while my father was on the other parties are all watching. There was odd times when we see lines are crossing this setting the other, then all we do we come together, where the lines is crossing, how do we untangle it, what's the way forward but we're not putting on one another. And subhanAllah that's the legacy of umami the legacy of our Ummah, is that they stood together, unconditionally, and that's when Islam move

01:19:41--> 01:19:59

forward. You know, when Al Hamad used to say that every success of our Ummah, came off the back of unity, and every time the Ummah fell off the back of this unity. So one of the one of the strong factors of this campaign is to give that message of unity and to show it into a role model. And when you

01:20:00--> 01:20:37

Make your contribution you contributing to solidifying unity back into Oma. And through that, because even our organizations working together, we're already talking about how the skill sets that are use on our learning, they can benefit from a broader set of skills because now outside of TTR, this use mastery diffusions leadership programs, our kids can benefit from all of these things. And in over and above that the product we put back into society is going to be a product on a whole other level. So from my side, if I can actually conclude before you, you know, tell me then you told me to include in I don't conclude, but I wanted to conclude the meeting, let me conclude and you're

01:20:37--> 01:20:38

doing it. I live with

01:20:41--> 01:20:45

my son, I have coffee, I actually made coffee, now you lying

01:20:47--> 01:20:48

wasn't a view,

01:20:49--> 01:20:54

you didn't have coffee. And you look like that. Now at this time

01:20:55--> 01:20:58

they live in, but cannot be extended to

01:21:00--> 01:21:03

listen on a serious note, we need to wrap up.

01:21:05--> 01:21:30

Your last words of encouragement to our viewership OS and the banking details that's on the screen now is for his NAT Academy, which I now in the info on was the inevitable dancer, if you would like to support this platform as well. That's how you can contribute. But I will go back to the blank, planking the banking details at the end again, inshallah it's been on for the whole day. I'll go back to the investment.

01:21:31--> 01:22:13

I want to echo what Mike just said, No, there's, there's a couple of objectives with this collaboration. But there are two key ones. The first objective is to show unity. And that's a big thing. I always tell us there's too many people speaking about working together, but too few people actually doing it. Hamdulillah we collaborated on so many, we don't even realize on how many projects we are collaborating. We currently have the Iftar and tarawih program at Makers landing every Friday night and Saturday night a G program you can join us next week, Friday, next week, Saturday, Inshallah, Saturday will be a big buyers market and tracing some offerings and come

01:22:13--> 01:22:20

through and check that out. But my this is leading the tarawih program there.

01:22:21--> 01:23:02

And that's not even like an official collaboration, just how are we doing? So there's, there's a lot of synergy within the organizations and how we do so the show of unity is super important. And we want to be that group that leads by example, Inshallah, so it can have a ripple effect on the Restore community. And the second target or the second objective is obviously the financial one for our students to target the 5.7 million. And you can do that by assisting us by making monetary contributions by being ambassadors for the project by being our mouthpieces and telling people at work and telling your friends and sending the poster into the family Chat and wherever else to

01:23:02--> 01:23:19

encourage people particularly these last days of Ramadan to encourage them to contribute but most importantly we are asking you for to make to our for our success to make dua for each and every organization and our families because our families are kind of just part of of how we run Mina Hamina live

01:23:20--> 01:23:25

01:23:45--> 01:23:53

01:23:54--> 01:24:20

So tune in it will be one hour before Booker time inshallah on the 26th day and then the 27th night we'll be off to taraweeh for another hour and a half inshallah. And then on Saturday, it will be a big one on ITV channel 347.

01:24:21--> 01:24:44

By then we'll be having our pledge line in sha Allah. And then again, we would like you to encourage others to pledge and you also on behalf of your family as well my father said like your contribution and pledge towards the campaign inshallah. I mean, conclude again, yeah, you can go to the third conclusion, but I never go gluten. So if you're going to conclude with a conclusion.

01:24:46--> 01:24:58

No, I don't to say that you'll think that I've seen in 100 like having a run the battery campaign from last year to now and then seeing this next step. I can tell everyone with full confidence. The strength of this campaign is people bringing people

01:25:00--> 01:25:28

Something you actually shared with me like in passing I don't even know if you remember but I'll reward you for it. And it's a concept we grabbed we should every year we just gonna keep telling people and you grab your we grabbed our friends and family that's all we did. Whoever we had on our phones and our Instagram and our Facebook we get abdomen we should look at you our people and together as a people, we're going to take the Ummah forward so we're telling you now to grab your friends and family bring them along let them watch the show what's the 27th night so if it's possible, possibly let you shame that reward as well inshallah to Allah and then also the 20/29

01:25:28--> 01:26:05

The hadith I wanted to mention earlier is a husband naskila liked Isla and fertile homeliness, that the most beloved of people to allow those who are the most beneficial to others, the most beneficial to mankind.
