Okay, malema, we are talking to the project my EDA team tonight. Insha, Allah and uspa hitting this project. Give us some idea of the type of work the nature of the work that you guys do, and what have you accomplished up until now inshallah Bismillah.

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

Okay, so the gym is one.

00:02:37--> 00:03:35

So I have the gorilla project, my eater, basically started, I would say we we started in 2008, with about four recipients at the time, it started out of my kitchen. And yeah, I just wanted to do something for people at the time of of eat specifically. And then I went to went on to study at Alma aim. And so Hannah law. In our second year, Milena, Holly introduced, you know, the Taiwan project, you know, loving Quran. And so this is way it actually took off, I would say. And then, yeah, in 2019, I basically still sought permission from Alana Ali to venture out on my own. And, yeah, from this point, it went from, you know, when it started out in 2013 100, people it went to 330, and then

00:03:35--> 00:03:42

in 2020. So hang on, went all the way up to 600 recipients or hamdulillah. Sure, and so

00:03:44--> 00:03:46

and so this year,

00:03:47--> 00:04:20

this year, euros for heinola. Project minders, based on the hagie, three results from says that for as long as his name is in the assistance of another slave, Allah will be in his assistance. So the idea came about to instead of us just having our 600 you know, what about adding a few more organizations, and the idea was if we, if we add more organizations to our database and assist them then hopefully Allah will assist us and in extension access system as well.

00:04:22--> 00:04:37

So this is we grew from 600 to 2200 fontanella Yeah. So So yes, so So um, we hopeful in sha Allah still to make our target Be it Mila.

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

But in sha Allah, Allah is most amazing. And so can I make sure to make the offer that tonight inshallah, definitely, definitely more than US will hand over. So So, currently, we are we're at least last year what happened was, the intention was always to do you know the project on a monthly basis, but finding

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

Actually we went by the mean. And so last year of the IID Alhamdulillah, Allah sent assistance and we were able to do this on a monthly basis. So now what we do is we supply 50 parcels to 50 families on a monthly basis as of the last year eat. And as you know, Buddha Hemi or Alma home with the Hanif Abrams, he actually was a board member of project mind as well. And he was actually my biggest supporter, and my biggest encourages,

00:05:35--> 00:06:06

he will always say to me area for you, my wife is here for you, my family's here for you, you know, whatever you need. And it was just like that. So behind Allah. So we started a feeding program, right about the first week that he took you, you know, and the feeding program started because it was for the Shiva with the homies, and a hangover. So then from that time to now, subsequently, I think we fit about 3300 people just by feeding every Thursday.

00:06:08--> 00:06:16

And so since the demise of the Hanif as well. So Hannah largest butter bought upon Baraka in that we also

00:06:18--> 00:06:19

still doing

00:06:21--> 00:07:02

no valida we would make jokes and we would say yeah, Robbie still helping us. You know, he's still helping us from the grave. And so yeah, so now so behind Allah something completely achieved happened in December. In that we went with him you know, for the the Atlantis and chats with drop offs. And we Eva we came visit all the people, you know, I brought him here so that you can see where they are. And in case anything happens to me, they must carry on the work. And I just remember saying to him, stop it now, you know, you've done this enough now and at one point he might sold so much for our health and our strength and that if anything happens to him that the work must

00:07:02--> 00:07:37

continue, you know, so handled. And so ever since he passed away and hamdulillah we are now we started out with one soup kitchen. Now these five soup kitchens are home to Lila and so now we try to provide an ingredients to cook and so this happens every Monday and Thursday. And it's been tough, you know, with COVID it's been very difficult. So one month we're able to give another month we're not able to give, but I hamdulillah we do we have a very good team, you know, I hamdulillah everybody was well together.

00:07:39--> 00:07:40

Yes. Tell me if the community wants to get involved in in such an amazing endeavor, how can they do so?

00:08:00--> 00:08:22

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

radical.

00:09:28--> 00:09:46

Okay, Marina Rahim. So, that is an amazing endeavor from the community. So behind Allah as you see the Alma home with the Hanif is still at it. He still at it. And now, so any comments from Allah side on this type of initiatives and the importance that they play in the communities?

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

The number of things that I would like to say, number one, during the month of Ramadan, we all have become away now, of the importance of building a relationship with Allah.

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

So we are doing this while you're fasting. We are doing this via Pamela and etc.

00:10:07--> 00:10:12

At the same time we need to understand that the whole of Deen

00:10:13--> 00:10:52

It is actually a relationship with somebody. And that relationship is always one of two kinds either a relationship with the creator or a relationship with creation. Now, unfortunately many people are neglecting the second part. on this end we striving for piety, what building a relationship with Allah, but we forget that part and parcel of building a relationship with Allah is building a relationship with Allah beloved's now, like for example, Allah sees it very clearly in the Quran, Allah Allah Masha Allah Allah Jamison, Armando him. London Allah will get Allah Hakuna Matata, you will never attain to piety, until you spend of that which you love.

00:10:54--> 00:11:38

So that spending is done upon whom this training is not done directly towards Allah. Because Allah does not need that is it from us that doesn't need to be fit. Allah doesn't need our money, though Allah does sometimes speak in such a manner now but rather what Allah means is Allah wants us to spend in the path of Allah. Allah wants us to spend upon the poor and the needy, Subhanallah, the naked, the hungry, etc. And this is also the prophet Elijah McLean is it now you know what I say my Fibonacci? No, none of you as really, as a man, we don't have complete demand, until you love for your brother was to love yourself. And yes, it does mean your Muslim brother, your Muslim sister,

00:11:38--> 00:11:49

but it also means your brother in humanity, anybody out there that is in need, and not even just humans, even animals, with the Prophet Muhammad clearly stated, that

00:11:50--> 00:12:07

if you give sadaqa on anything that is a waste lover, meaning any living creature, you understand that that is still a thing that is that is considered immense in the sight of Allah. It isn't a thing that you do that you should look down upon, in your Mala. And I would just like to bring your attention to something very interesting.

00:12:09--> 00:12:10

Allah, Allah says in the Quran

00:12:11--> 00:12:54

that we should spend before we pass away, when a senator tells him the crime we should spend before we pass away. Because when you have passed away, we're going to be asking ALLAH, that cannot Allah grant us a slight delay, just a slight delay now, and then indeed, slight delay. Amazingly, the deceased will want to do two things for our Sadako akumina Salim now, he will want to be a charity and he will want to be of the pious to be of the pious, that is all the good things that you can imagine whether it is Salah, whether it is fasting, without this recital, of course and but Allah then goes in Allah mentions 1x pacifically. And that is the act of sadaqa. So why should the disease

00:12:54--> 00:13:20

be so focused on sadaqa? Now, here, there are numerous reasons. But the obvious reason is this. We as humans tend to think that the money the money in my bank account is mine. The man here in my pocket is mine, but the day you die, as much as your wife loves you, as much as your husband loves you, as much as your parents love you, as much as your children love you, they will reach into your pocket and they will take it when he is

00:13:21--> 00:13:52

no longer with us. Money will now be inheritance, and it will pass on to them. You understand. So who knows this based, the person that is died, the person that is died, it plays so much trust in the money in his bank account. Now my name his pocket, he suddenly realizes that money has gone up in smoke, yes, run this and while that money should have been spent in the path of Allah, and Allah is most generous, Allah is not asking you to spend of what you need. You understand what you need

00:13:53--> 00:14:17

to maintain your body, whatever you need to close your naked. Whatever you need to house yourself and your family. Miss Mila, go ahead and take a little bit extra to enjoy yourself also. But whatever is in excess of your need, ever thought for your fellow Muslim, ever thought your fellow human ever thought for your fellow animal out there now. And especially as we come to the end of Ramadan.

00:14:18--> 00:14:59

The Prophet Allah Islam as advisors with the Torah and the teachings of the Prophet Alayhi Salam is that it fulfills two purposes amongst many others. Number one, it is a Torah. It is a means of purifying yourself from any sin that you might have come up to during the month of Ramadan. Any deficiency that might have applied to your fasting to to make up for a deficiency, you understand by introducing new reward, and then it is a thought it is a means of feeding the poor. And yeah, we have to really think we have to really think when taped on other people, we like to celebrate those legs it understanding those legs more or less. I understand so when it comes

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

Then we go to town. Now I understand we feast, like there's no tomorrow it comes, and the way we rest, Allahu Akbar. Now, I don't want to go too deeply into that. But I just want to say, is it right and proper, that we should look like kings and queens? And we should dine like princes and princesses? But are they somebody poor? That is a Muslim, and that person is not going to be eating today? Is somebody out there that a person is struggling to cover themselves and protect themselves against the elements? And yeah, is we certain projects like project manager comes into play a lot. But

00:15:39--> 00:16:20

one of the reasons this project is close and dear to my heart, and I'll just mentioned too quickly is number one, because it is this it is led by females. And this is what we need in a Muslim community, right? When I say Alhamdulillah, with Ed learned and strong men, that they that they have carried the flag, but it is idiocy to allow 50% of the Muslim community to stagnate it I understand they need to come to the front, you understand that they need to do things. So this is one of those projects, Masha Allah, spearheaded by females with miles in the background. Now that's automatically brings me to the second issue, with Hanif being one of those males in the background. And we've had

00:16:20--> 00:16:35

the separate program Jason with the wonderful men that he was that that what they did for Atlas Dean. And this is part and parcel of his legacy. You understand the fact that people are still fed, and he was he was one of the initial,

00:16:36--> 00:16:42

he was one of the initiators of this effort. And here we really commend sisters Ufa

00:16:43--> 00:16:53

for picking up the flag, after the Hanif was forced to drop it due to this, you understand that she had picked up this flag, and we are very, very, very proud of her

00:16:55--> 00:17:07

efforts Allahu Akbar, all of us are trying to assist in in, in in in small, little ways, whatever way we can. But really, at this moment in time, she's spearheading that effort, and

00:17:08--> 00:17:51

we make the audit Allah rewards me most handsomely. When Allah grants are the highest Jenna, whenever she passes away, the law overlooks any defects on our side. And whatever efforts he started his effort continues until the day of the AMA, I really look forward in sha Allah, to one day when we are dead, and we are lying in our graves and in the reward is just falling into the grave. You understand? And then you wondering aloud but what is this? What is this? I can do this? I didn't do that. How is it that I'm getting reward? But Alhamdulillah This is the beauty of Allah. Manson if Islam is una Hashanah, Hussain was a good example. In Islam, for who he gets the reward of it was a

00:17:51--> 00:18:05

gentleman and he said he will ever emulate him and acts in accordance with the example that he said until the day of gamma. So Ah, my son likes to call it free rewards. No, no, it's exactly for

00:18:07--> 00:18:12

a reward that you might minimal effort, right? Did you just set the example

00:18:13--> 00:18:35

at this moment in sha Allah with the Hanif is enjoying that hello and sha Allah whoever is involved in this effort we make sure that Allah grants him this opportunity as well. My whatever we said tonight might enter the hearts of some we're able to afford to give that extra in this path in sha Allah me and maybe an effort that continues until the day of the AMA

00:18:36--> 00:19:15

as we stand in please please yada yada and these the banking details of project Merida and that's sister sofa who actually posted that so you can just take those details they inshallah Allah Marina I'd like to bring on since since Allah mentioned that this organization is led by females and that's one of the outstanding qualities that really makes Molina so excited about this and enthusiastic about the project. So we have with us shareholder kaya samsudin and Muladhara Zack who will bring on a bit lighter inshallah inshallah, and in her okaya she, she can tell us about her involvement at the project made inshallah Bismillah said I want to go with obrigado

00:19:17--> 00:19:31

por la Rocca to Santa Monica. Hello Erica to everyone who's listening hamdulillah and tuned in this evening and hamdulillah my involvement with Project mama either in sha Allah bird

00:19:32--> 00:19:42

straight into the straight into the formal speech like yes, I started to ask you are you doing it as an ongoing and who do you think?

00:19:46--> 00:19:49

Are you well, it's been a while since we've had you on the platform of Shangri La

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

Romana but it's Ramadan Alhamdulillah so we as busy as we've ever been given Mohammed Allah to accept that these me

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

I mean,

00:20:01--> 00:20:12

we must get you on again to speak to us about studying in the mosque, I enjoyed that so much behind Allah and many others said, you know that they also benefited from your experiences, the Mashallah

00:20:18--> 00:20:18

I mean,

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

I mean,

00:20:23--> 00:20:28

please tell us about your involvement in Project majda. inshallah, to Allah and why people should support this course.

00:20:30--> 00:20:34

Before that, I just want to say it's an ironic, everybody, especially to myself,

00:20:36--> 00:20:37

today in studio,

00:20:39--> 00:20:47

my involvement with Project majda, and with monuments and, you know, scumming, along, you know, for for many years,

00:20:49--> 00:21:08

and something that not only was a my volumize offer, you know, it's always been involved in, in some kind of a level something together. First is I think I was a teacher and we became colleagues. And I have, to the point now, where we working together project manager,

00:21:10--> 00:21:35

but something which I told us or handle on monument, this is really your talent, like, you need to take it further, you have the ability to manage, and you just hang Allah, you know, everybody, and you know, what is needed, and you know exactly how to plug the holes. And you know, that would be that difference to us. The more argument the teacher, let's say, you know, what, Allah Subhana Allah, Allah has granted me the ability to, you know, teach and be in a classroom, and, you know,

00:21:36--> 00:22:19

be a leader in that way. But this is your full time argument, you really needed to take it further. And Subhana Allah, this is always been what I've said. And while I was I never seen anybody around, really, and heavy industry has always been involved in these kinds of schemes, feeding schemes, and even at nighttime, you know, the regular man around the corner, always making sure that everybody seemed to, so this has always been a concern of mine limousines around his office specifically, and Hamdulillah, share the spoon, everybody, everybody around there, but she was really the one who spearheaded these kinds of initiatives, until it really culminated in Project ma EDA, you know, the

00:22:19--> 00:22:40

last year or so that she has spearheaded this project Alhamdulillah. And it's really been growing from strength to strength and the backing and support behind Alhamdulillah really speaks about the sincerity of her work, and the intention and the hard work she puts in, in the background. hamdulillah Allah Subhana Allah is

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

coming.

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

Just

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

Shahada

00:22:48--> 00:22:57

Do you have any word of encouragement for our viewers tonight, in terms of Sadako, especially towards this beautiful organization, and in general as well in sha Allah.

00:22:59--> 00:23:47

Allah, after Melinda Mara speaks in feedback. So hello, what do you say to say, for me, I'm listening, and I'm thinking about this project. And yes, there's, you know, many people involved in the project. And I think what is unique about this project for many people, and you want really like stacks of code in people's hearts, is the connection to the Hanif and I think for many reasons, and I want to maybe just touch on one or two points. I think it's the fact that for me personally, but the Hanif was my one of the most alive people that I knew, but their honey was always full of energy, in the spontaneity always ready to assist of hangover whatever the crisis with the hammock

00:23:47--> 00:23:55

is the one to call. And I think when Allah Subhana Allah call the Buddha Hanif back and also had the honor granted him and what the demand mean,

00:23:56--> 00:24:31

kind of eat a lot of people in the sense that Subhan Allah, put the honeybees in the animal and that reality which we do know of coolness in the mouth, you know, that certainly they shall come to all of us and we shall all tasted, I think that reality kind of sit in for a lot of people. And he is, you know, the inspiration for all of us and for many of us on this project really, to try to do as much as we can in the temporary life with Allah Subhana Allah has granted us on this dunya and remember the

00:24:33--> 00:24:59

modalities, whatever you have given full of goodness for yourself, Amelie unphysical not for others, I think that is so. So Han Allah, it's so profound that everything we do is for ourselves for our own Africa, for you know, we kind of securing as much as we can with Allah Subhana Allah is bound in his mercy, our fellow for evil we have put for him this dunya so I think that is

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

Really,

00:25:02--> 00:25:40

the media behind everything that yes, as well as a modern of it, to always be in the assistance of others as you and the sisters insist assistance of others insha, Allah, Allah Subhana, Allah will be in our assistance. That's the one one. And the other part, to know that we want to lead productive lives, lives that when Allah subhanaw taala takes us away from this dunya that we have left something behind that can continue to benefit us. And maybe On a final note, the wisdom of Yemeni scholars, and I think your home Chef yawata, you know, 54 years, you know, it doesn't matter how many years we aren't, but what are we leaving behind message

00:25:41--> 00:25:51

to be productive, it doesn't mean that everybody must be teaching in schools, and in Arabic, and now from the members or from the classrooms. But you know, there's a place

00:25:52--> 00:26:30

for everyone. And so Han Allah, this is really, as I said, a cooling for my limousine. And why my sofa and my family remember, I mentioned what animals ate up all the time, because they're always together with this project for animals officer, so calling for her and for all of us to be around and to support this definitely an honor, but also lost behind Madonna, that those who are listening in sha Allah and Allah Subhana Allah has granted the favor to be in a position to give that they give and just one last comment, you spoke about Damascus, I'll just leave one snippet here inshallah, one thing I remember Damascus looking at out of the box, you know, in the, you know, I

00:26:30--> 00:26:42

didn't know much Arabic And I just came to the country and even to Hanover, those were asking and wanting, you know, immediately they wouldn't say give me money. They said our team emanuela so can

00:26:44--> 00:26:46

you say I'm seeing me marry like give me a

00:26:48--> 00:26:51

now do you with some money in your pocket? How do you

00:26:53--> 00:26:54

say you know, the money

00:26:58--> 00:27:13

allows you know, that cognisance insha Allah and the consciousness of Allah Subhana Allah and that everything we have is a testament also have gotten in a gift and a blessing. And if we are grateful for that then insha Allah, Allah will increase as I mean

00:27:14--> 00:27:31

to sekolah Ferran Shahada Kaya It is a privilege and pleasure to have you with us again inshallah, we should do this again sometime with our discussion in charlo to Allah and we thank you 21st night of Ramadan please keep us in your two eyes and we will keep you in house inshallah.

00:27:32--> 00:27:35

Wise is an ironic gospel okay to two millennia.

00:27:42--> 00:27:47

Subhan Allah, some inspirational words the and and stories from

00:27:49--> 00:27:50

hunger Neela

00:27:51--> 00:27:52

I just wanted to add one I know

00:27:53--> 00:27:56

that the prophet of Islam he said that mana Casazza document,

00:27:58--> 00:28:42

at no act of charity, as ever decrease the wealth of anyone, right. So this is one of the biggest problems when it comes to encouraging people to spend in the path of Allah are always worried, what will be left? Will they be enough left for me. But Allah reminds us that the treasures of risk that are that are infinitely lies in Asians. And Allah's promise is that whatever you spend in the path of Allah, and whatever you do to please Allah, minimum reward is times 10. And there was this hobby, I forget his name. Now, he had this practice that at the most difficult moments in his life, when he had the least possible money, he would actually give that money in charity. And one day and others

00:28:42--> 00:29:18

have rebuked him and said, Why are you giving the money away? The poorest man in the city, I understand people should actually be giving you money. And then he said that when I learned this Hadith, that whatever you do for Allah, Allah gives you a minimum 10 times 10 reward. I discovered that whenever I give money in the path of Allah, Allah sends back money at least 10 times. Yes, Allah And while we were discussing this, the money said he had given him charity, somebody actually came in gave him money, and when they will get they counted it it was exactly 10 times the amount How are they given? Then also, I would like to add,

00:29:19--> 00:29:59

based upon what I previously said, that spending upon Allah screeches Allah takes it personally, is Hadith in Sahih Muslim, where the Prophet Allah says that Allah will say on the day of karma, Allah will say to a man, that I was sick, but you didn't visit me. I was hungry, but you didn't feed me. I was thirsty, and he didn't give me to drink. And then this man will respond to a lion he will say Allah, how can you get sick and you are a bull? I mean, you are the Lord and creator of all things. How can you be hungry? You are blind. I mean, how can you be says to me, and there are lots of response will be, well, there was a slave of mine. It was sick.

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

You visited him he would have found me. It was a cyber monday was hungry and asked you to feed him and you fed him. You they found me there. It was a slave on Monday it was thirsty, I'd given him to drink, where they found me there. So what we understand from this hadith is that when we have any poor person, it is as if we are helping Allah, Allah, personally. And in relation to this, Allah says in the Quran also, that the who is there that will with my Allah, good loan, a good loan, no bonus, and even even even the statement Allahu Akbar, it just blows you away. To make Allah a good Lord, how can I make a good loan, when everything I possess, it is the property also handle and if

00:30:42--> 00:31:23

Allah wants to take it, who is there to resist him, but you see, this is the gift that we can give the gift that even an angel cannot give. And that is willing obedience. Now, turning away from disobedience in entering into willing obedience, as is the gift we can give the unique gift that we as humans and as the jinn possess, the angels do not possess the ability to this way, they are only in obedience of Allah. So obviously, that is higher, and that is Baraka. But you see the fact that they cannot disobey, it limits them to a certain degree, right? And when we choose to abide by the grace of Allah, we ascend to higher than the angels. Yes, and Allah knows best. So certainly, we

00:31:23--> 00:31:56

encouraging people that does have a bond, do not just focus on fasting do not just focus on Tila focus also on sadaqa, you understand and we are asking you that project Merida, it is it is it is a very worthy cause agreed for you to put your money in, it is going to be feeding people, especially on the day of aid. And this is a continuous effort where people are fed throughout the So please, we do encourage you in whatever small way, even if it is a 50 cent, even if it's a hard actually, for me to imagine that

00:31:58--> 00:32:07

there are actually people who don't have food on either side. Could people who fast in Ramadan, and we'll play that away?

00:32:09--> 00:32:31

And they have maybe dry bread in house maybe weeks in the house. That's what they haven't they've agreed to and the unfortunate reality Malina is that we supposed to be the middle class of the year 2021. We live like, like Pharaohs, absolutely. Like I tell people that if I were to meet federal today, Pharaoh would be impressed by me. So

00:32:34--> 00:32:58

he's actually better wanted to know what is happening in the same country. Man and demand table six months, six months back, I just pick up my cell phone instantly what's happening in China, what's wrong in India, you don't even need to pick it up when you can just say, OK, Google, I mean, we all I think my phone is gonna do that. Now. I can just I can just speak to him in any response. And I the same thing if Pharaoh wanted water, you have to send somebody the river Nile to collect.

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

I just turned my tip. In fact, if you have the right tab, you can just turn it to the left. Turn it to the high or the scenes and

00:33:09--> 00:33:11

you don't need to some people to speak to the table.

00:33:14--> 00:33:17

And the same thing would light if your unwanted light somebody had to make a bonfire,

00:33:18--> 00:33:27

sticking it inside, wherever you are staying. But in my case, I just I just flick a button. Some of us don't even do that you just

00:33:28--> 00:33:42

light is on and the light is on. So we live in an age with Pharaoh. the Faroe Islands of the past Bahamas or Calhoun's? They will be impressed by us. Yes. But unfortunately at the same time, they are people that don't have a roof over their head.

00:33:43--> 00:34:11

Yeah, people that cannot cover the hour properly, have nowhere to toilet. We understand they are toileting independence. And then we are disgusted by them. We don't want them close to us. You understand because they have started themselves. But we have no understanding of the condition. And this is one of the hours of fasting. To understand. I've noticed that in the year 2020. We are constantly nibbling, constantly nibbling doesn't matter where you are, you can be in a data source, even doubling.

00:34:13--> 00:34:32

But Ramadan forces you to face hunger and to understand what hunger is all about. And what is our hunger compared to the hunger? A hunger that is only going from dawn until sunset? What is that compared to Amanda's been angry for three days, or five days or six days does is give you an example.

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

I have a friend His name is Mike Khan. And he likes cats. So he adopted a cat from the street. I think the kid's name was snowing.

00:34:43--> 00:34:59

And he had to catch the raisins young. So he would have three bowls of food for the kids. And we'll throw food in each bowl and the two clutch reactions young. It only enough and then you'd walk away. And then every now and then they would come back to the bowl and he would nibble but the kid that he took from

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

The street that Kate would eat up all our food, sure, then she would eat up all the food in the second goal to eat up all the food in the third bowl, then you continue trading and she would just eat and eat and eat and eat until she reached a point where her stomach couldn't take it and she would vomit it out, go in the same. And it continued like this for months. And then he asked me, I don't understand the behavior of this cat. So I said, you see a smile, you will not know the nature of this kid. This kid is a kid that was in the street and escaped was used to going without food for days on end. So the law of this cat was that whenever this cat comes across food, it must go detail

00:35:38--> 00:36:19

it must eat the max that you can possibly eat. Because he doesn't know when it will eat again. You understand? Now I speaking about the kit. Yeah, but at the end of the day, they are human brothers out there as well when they send it out in similar circumstances in any effort that is out there to assist people in Sharla and it doesn't need to be a religion meaning only of the Muslims are in the sand or only have a certain class of people then I must just as quickly wait is one like equals analogies for one of the one of the views Oh, so coming to a Khan Academy what the comment was exactly what Malema either favorite TJ He always makes the best analogies and I ended up using the

00:36:19--> 00:36:44

giveaway this one I think he's things like this is just come like Subhana Allah, Allah knows best Allah just I don't think about it. Rather To me, it is just me trying to understand life mission. So anything that comes my way I try to understand how does this work? Okay, the issue of this kit now, trying to understand why is the kit like the show? Yeah, well, now, you have comfort now. We have constant food now why do you still be

00:36:46--> 00:36:47

so it's ingrained?

00:36:48--> 00:36:52

indicate and does introduce something else for me as well.

00:36:54--> 00:37:02

Frequently we want to make sure that right. But we very harsh on the people that do the internet in Mexico, we always create lots of conditions

00:37:03--> 00:37:21

before we give them something, and yeah, what I've learned from the Quran and Hadees. And I would I would like to make this recommendation is that poor people when you have need to be, number one only beg when you need to, when it is improper in Islam to beg, if you are able to earn

00:37:22--> 00:37:59

the Hadith clearly stated, if you are begging you have no need to bake Did you will appear under Dave kiama with no meat on your face. And we can either take this in a literal way in a figurative way in a figurative or even mean that you would be a person that has no respect that has no honor. But most of them are taking it in a literal way. Because there's no good reason to take it in a figurative way. And that is that he will appear on the desk with a skeleton vise a scalpel basically. And the reason for that is you had no self respect a man or woman that has self respect, they will not bake if they are able to earn for themselves. And the second problem with that is if

00:37:59--> 00:38:36

you are begging while you are able to answer yourself when you have enough money, then money that should go in the hands of the actually poor person, they actually angry person that money is now going your way. So number one we want to say to people by can effort to earn your own right of self respect. Educate yourself develop yourself so that you can earn for yourself. So that is on the side of the poor on the side of people that are not of the poor, do not make these excessive conditions to assess the poor, right at any given moment in time if you don't know for sure give people the benefit of the doubt. Just look at this the Quran

00:38:37--> 00:39:20

Allah let it be looser, the catacomb will manual. So not to not follow up your charitable money desiring things from people yes, I must not do stuff for you, while other and by causing them harm. I like speaking badly to them and so forth. Even if you know for a fact somebody is a drunkard, then then give no she hi in a beautiful fashion it I call to the path of your Lord using wisdom to understand but in most cases we don't know for a fact we just see somebody walking down the road and he said walking properly and then we assume I said taco dancing I said the wrong thing you understand or why we will get a certain smell or the smell could be anything and then we just assume

00:39:20--> 00:39:59

is karma is fine. But I said then we killed three people and we shouted them and so forth. So what I want to say is this in sha Allah, if you are able to assist your fellow Muslim or fellow human beings in do so and try to do so in the best of manners, but if you are unable to assess them, then give them a kind word. Give them the sadaqa of a kind word. Tell them my brother understand your plight I have limited means I cannot assist you today, inshallah tomorrow, I mean even at home modernise panela, like at home, you know, charity begins at home. So begin at home and if you can't afford to make sadaqat home in other ways, speak kindly to your family. If they're women

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

All right, like I said, I mean, we lost it you have like a beautiful kind conversation with your spouse. You know, just sit and speak.

00:40:08--> 00:40:10

The problem in the year 2021

00:40:11--> 00:40:31

the people that we claim to love minor mistakes they make we jump. Yeah, this is absolutely sharp. You understand how bad when they do good things we make us if we didn't notice, or understand there's something seriously wrong. Yeah, sure, that sickness, something seriously wrong. Let's see. So this is this is the message that I want to put out there.

00:40:32--> 00:40:50

It doesn't need to be money. It doesn't need to be money. You can say something good. Somebody you could take your your brother and take him to somebody else's house, you know, as excess money and is willing to spend. Yeah, you don't need to be the one. But you can be that the intercessor Yeah, we'll make the

00:40:51--> 00:41:16

nosepiece but it's always something you can do for somebody else. Even if it is a kind word. And Allahu Akbar, I really have to come in there are certain people here in Capetown Allahu Akbar, they are truly of Alas, pious people. They are truly of Alas, generous people and I make do Allah put higher and Baraka lies and racism in the dooney army. In the army, I said this would be a nice

00:41:19--> 00:41:30

presentation. But I say this year also, there are some people that perhaps have a look about the prominence the other people that are speaking from the members, right, they are the people that are teaching the lessons, etc. But

00:41:32--> 00:41:49

I wouldn't be surprised if certain people that are unknown to the community known only to Allah, when these people are the leaders on the day of the show, you understand, I wouldn't be surprised and I would be perfectly happy. If I can go to the place that people like me am I going to

00:41:50--> 00:42:27

it it might be sacrifices a lot but I would be perfectly happy. You understand and Allah knows best. Everybody out there is a gift. Everybody out there has something in them that can make the world a better place. We just need to figure out who you are. You just need to figure out which animal in the jungle you know, understand and give that benefit to the dunya like I've said this before, and it might sound like an insult to some but when you look at a center and you tell that center you are a pig man I'm going to say the Africans also so far you understand you're saying that to a center

00:42:29--> 00:42:33

the pigs if they could speak they would be insulted Why would they be insulted because they are obedient?

00:42:35--> 00:42:40

You understand the reason Alaska rated them is to be walking talking garbage cans.

00:42:41--> 00:43:06

They are fulfilling the function so handle runners and they are taking all of the rubbish all of that data and they are turning it into compost the plants and and any other living creatures can use and then eventually it becomes fruit and it becomes this and it becomes that they are doing their job they are in obedience of Allah. You understand it is we humans that are the problem Yes. holes in the ozone layer. It is not coming because crocodiles are smoking.

00:43:08--> 00:43:15

Oh, monkeys are using under arm that is that is making holes in the ozone layer. It is at the heart of

00:43:18--> 00:43:52

the nurse that's what Allah says in the Quran. Absolutely. Corruption has come in the land corruption has come with the ocean due to what the hands of men have wrought. And Allah says it is only taste some use me the negative consequences of their done absolutely no no. scoffed at Marina that that expression. I mean, how Didn't we corrupt in the sense like with COVID and the lockdown the type of environment if Allah knows about this, but there was so much environmental awakening during that period. I know somebody who's environmental forensics, and he was telling us that

00:43:54--> 00:44:01

it is a it is phenomenal. Like the turtles are coming onto the show and I saw amazing amazing Yeah, just

00:44:03--> 00:44:12

under the running in the streets and all of that. So nature nature reclaimed what what is it what belongs to it now? No, it was like dolphins in in the avo. So

00:44:14--> 00:44:27

yeah, so no, absolutely. I couldn't agree more. Well, I can we bring on Muladhara jack and the HIV service sitting in the backend waiting since the beginning of the program so I got to get on

00:44:31--> 00:44:32

how are you doing?

00:44:33--> 00:44:35

Having a lot of good I'm Michelle.

00:44:36--> 00:44:37

Michelle.

00:44:40--> 00:44:41

Michelle.

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

Michelle.

00:44:46--> 00:44:53

I'm one of those that Kevin message for for every message for the people regarding sadaqa inshallah, encouragement towards other called Bismillah

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

hamdullah Malala salatu salam ala rasulillah salam O Allah wa sallam Allah Allah wa sahbihi

00:45:00--> 00:45:23

ru Sahaba Salam hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah we're very blessed and foremost Alhamdulillah tonight being the first, you know ordinates the midst of Allah Salam O Allah said Ahmed mentioned we should be seeking a little further you know in the ordinates the last 10 is 100 of the last 10 nights of Ramadan la shala makers from building shallow shell benefiting Sharma from the Hara

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

Michel

00:45:26--> 00:45:32

Marina normally a human being asked himself apart from being obedient to Allah subhanaw taala first and foremost Marana

00:45:33--> 00:46:19

you know, as a believer there are things we have no choices in point. It's a commandment from Allah subhanaw taala. So it's given Allah says in Morocco, you let in on what I'm filming for you by tomorrow. So it's a commandment from Allah subhanaw taala and of course mana one in the beginning of Sabah, Cora, you know, things that Allah speaks about with a little more dakini then we're talking Allah speaks of six things mala in that first, you know first few verses of Bukhara a Latina even a beloved or UK masala ami Morocco now when it comes from that which are from Bella we have suspended with the spin. So that's one of the you know the signs of pain, but mana maybe sometimes Allah

00:46:19--> 00:46:25

subhanaw taala also in the Quran, and also in the sermon in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, human

00:46:27--> 00:46:48

mind sometimes needs to understand what is in store for me not only in Africa, but in Kenya because mana all over Sharia is purpose oriented. Allah does not only benefit for us in Africa, but we are going to reap some of those benefits in this dunya panela especially if we obedient to Allah we're going to have a good life. But But something on the past perhaps mentioned mana briefly.

00:46:50--> 00:47:37

First and foremost, Mona, as one I had mentioned earlier on mana processor, the alternate model, so my mind tells me that you know, for example, Riba Allah says young people love Riba. Allah destroys Riba, but Allah Subhana, Allah makes the soul to grow to expand, and of course, and of course, more. So the mind tells me one thing, but the system of other the divine, you know, information is telling me another thing. So what does a sound mind do? Subhanallah it needs to trust because if you look at even the word sort of, what are the letters of that word? So ad dal of serum, in other words, is one of the ways of manifestation of the demand of the human being over and over over Oliver's panel. So

00:47:37--> 00:47:48

I believe that Allah Subhana Allah gave me this wealth. And Hannah's telling me it's the impact the so called Simona spend or son of Adam, I should spend on you. It was

00:47:49--> 00:48:02

Allah, Allah, Allah Subhana Allah. And then what does Allah say matter? levina Guna Milan feasability la kamatera Hubba Mandala in that word hub is a seed. So in other words, if you're eating a fruit

00:48:04--> 00:48:49

from the fruit, what determines that seed? So when that seed if you plant that seed, you turn him on, when that tree grows into branches one, how many fruits come out of that? Now imagine Allah just want you to uncouple minmetals mementos not everything as well as mentioned earlier on one especially in the month of Ramadan and then then I'll be rotting fukami mud bone so mana we Allah is giving us this look upon the cm cm conducted by legendary political Allah tala we're striving very hard exerting ourselves the second Quran Allah accept from us many of us panelo perhaps Allah sometimes very challenging to to complete the Hata minimum Allah many Muslims Han Allah with with

00:48:49--> 00:49:26

all the weakness that we have many of us complete in fact many panel items from the as it may one so we are putting that we are putting we get into what we're getting, we're putting a handler we're loading so that you know our bucket of you know can increase so we can have enough work to be able to push us through the year the other 11 months. But mama The problem is the bucket is leaking. Why? Because Allah says we never attain piety until you spend for that which you from that which you love. So now other thing that you never think that piety so we are striving hard but you're not spending now can you see? So we are hitting a wall right so like for example you're charging your

00:49:26--> 00:49:45

phone, but the socket you didn't put it on monitor. So the phone is there everything is connected but this the switch is not on. So someone so it's part and parcel monitor it is unknown. So what is installed this what I wanted to speak about mainly monitor today. Perhaps this tonight, what is in store for me, the Missoula Salalah Salem's admission narration

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

that Salalah SLM that I spent without delay, then handle it stands in the way of a calamity. In other words, calamity does not before me, first and foremost. So handle so I am safe. And we all know you know how we go

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

Whatever we put in terms of our vehicles, the alarms and, and all that stuff and the locks and our homes, our burglar bars and, and everything when we go out of our way to do all these things, spend a lot of money for protection and all of this. And then there's the divine system, Allah says spend and it will stand in the way of calamity to look before we want to handle and then will not handle attempts of you know, when we have financial, you know, injuries and difficulties as well. As made mentioned well like minimum income, it is proven not only what's panela it's proven that immediately experiment that Allah says we will be so the part is very, very crucial. Okay, why not live, live,

00:50:40--> 00:50:47

live live alone that one. We are always looking for the help of Allah. Everything we do we raise our hands Subhana Allah,

00:50:49--> 00:50:51

Allah, this is the advice of the person I'm given.

00:50:53--> 00:50:55

It as as the personal witness,

00:50:56--> 00:51:32

pasta in builder with under pasta in builder. So when you ask us Allah when you seek for help, seek the help of Allah Subhana Allah because in the whole world comes together moderner they want to benefit you, they will tell us they will never been to except that which Allah has decreed for you. And if the whole world one comes together they want to harm you. They want me except which Allah degree for you. So our everything we are depend on last panel that we can't even blink an eye without the permission of Allah subhanaw taala the Messenger of Allah Salaam see can can remove your own inner monologue if you're only at the moment we are going to be assisting your brother then

00:51:32--> 00:51:47

immediately you'll get your drawing from handle that your day is coming to you. Holy moly, like like now hamdulillah many Muslims now performing Tikka Alhamdulillah and we know the value critical the mitzvah Salaam Salaam se han Allah Azza

00:51:49--> 00:51:52

Hola Salah Salim said in in the same Hadith if you go out of our way to assist your brother Subhana Allah the word that Allah is ready to handle is better than performing because they miss Villa sauce and I'm saying I think in that generation will not speak and aggression 10 years three word just going out of your way to assist your brother 10 is better than 10 years you're gonna take off and one of

00:52:30--> 00:52:31

us being about a replacement

00:52:32--> 00:52:37

machine number we now you can imagine what's the value performance Allah what's the value of America?

00:52:39--> 00:53:13

Well, okay, I want to come to the power now speak about the dunya one way or the other as Mona I've made mentioned earlier on, how long are we going to live in this world Mona? Babies handle our lifespan the image of Allah sallallahu Sallam said 6070 years saving 100 years Marana but how long are we going to be the government? Allah knows best? panela maybe 1000s of years now imagine the person who the business when the law I don't sell me the multiple elements. The first one socket injuria so handle while the person is lying in the pub. How babies spend 6070 say under beers in this world. How much Salah Can you make

00:53:14--> 00:53:45

Can you how much can you okay you are Amala limited with imagining the cover the moment the project that you're involved in, while the Muslims the oma the believers panel or the man mankind are benefiting from the unfuck the most beloved person to Allah I have goodness it Allah and Molina's the most beloved person to Allah those who are beneficial to mankind so mana while the hamdulillah We need someone is dying in the our mana will lie as one member I've made mentioned I think he

00:53:46--> 00:53:50

said Free Free Free Free reward mana imagine 1000s of years mahna

00:53:52--> 00:54:12

mahna mahna just coming in coming in whoo 1000s of years now you tell me more now say for a little bit there's some small you know minuses maybe or maybe some stuff against your name. You tell me 1000s of years of reward compared to how many years you live in this world. Can you ever want to look at that balance achievement and then now what doesn't stop us in

00:54:13--> 00:54:21

the day when wonder you know they have to wear you know how hectic it is. It is hectic Allah gave us only shelter yes

00:54:22--> 00:54:32

Nicola Hydra and for this peaceful incisive declaring us I shall i is really inspiring. So you know, I think at the holidays an encyclopedia by the grace of Allah.

00:54:36--> 00:54:43

I wanted to finish it in a similar manner. I actually decided to get one of them as comments on

00:54:44--> 00:54:46

on your on your comments inshallah we should.

00:54:47--> 00:54:49

If I can just add to a hadith Israel

00:54:51--> 00:54:59

has mentioned. Number one, the prophet tells us that every day two angels descend. And the one Angel might say Oh Allah, it can happen.

00:55:00--> 00:55:13

Allow it was beans in your path while I replace whatever you spent. And then the other Angel may say to Allah RT Mumsy can telephone surveys refuse to spend in your path of Allah destroy his wealth. Yes.

00:55:15--> 00:55:52

So certainly one of the means of gaining more wealth is to actually spend in the path of Allah. And I've seen this in what I've done is I can probably give you lots of examples, but I've seen this at times when, when when money was tight, people that we know that were generous people, the businesses are still doing pretty well. You understand and they were still doing very well. And this is because they have the help of Allah with him. Like for example, the examples are made and then I could add the the Hadith, to have a life or a high coefficient. make yourself known to align your good days, and Allah will know you in your bad days. So make yourself known to allow when you have lots of

00:55:52--> 00:56:32

money, for example, and then tomorrow when we have little money, Allah will remember you, Allah will be there for you. And the other thing I wanted to add is this is Hadith I think Islam Sahih Muslim, with the Prophet of Allah says that if you spend even just a date in the path of Allah, Allah will look after that. And Allah will maintain that as how you look after your horse is how you look after an animal that you raised from a baby show. You understand anything eventually what will happen to that date, it will eventually become the size of a mountain. Yes, you understand. So this idea that Zach mentioned from the higher you will be sadaqa Allah allows you sada caste to grow allows you to

00:56:32--> 00:56:55

expand and degree the degree we cannot imagine or understand we've heard minimum times 10 we've heard now is largest a mountain and it can be even more than that. It is just based upon the quality of the sacrifice that is made and Allah knows best article if you come to Zakouma hi Ron rezeki see Do you still wanted to go to that you know, we can go with you. Since

00:56:57--> 00:56:59

we can go together. We have a bureaucracy

00:57:03--> 00:57:05

I just wanted to say I love the new Masha Allah

00:57:07--> 00:57:10

ma myself in in Malaysia is in the dark.

00:57:14--> 00:57:14

Radical

00:57:16--> 00:57:17

ln Krishna

00:57:18--> 00:57:20

the narration of even hoceima although

00:57:23--> 00:57:52

we can edition, but they're poor things emissive Allah sallallahu Sallam is reputed to have said in the month of Ramadan, you should do in abundance in terms of Laila Halawa and this differ. And two things which is we cannot do without is to ask for so Han Allah. Allah says Bermondsey honey now, what would you say? Well, Jenna prophet first thing that we need to ask in abundance mana, which is now to be saved from Japan, and entered into Janna, Mama, what did they miss Vanessa loss and I'm saying, it can now follow Be sure to

00:57:55--> 00:58:07

save yourself from Hellfire from just even giving sadaqa of half a half a bit one. Now you told me one in our homes will lie by the name of Allah in our homes. How many dates do we have?

00:58:12--> 00:58:13

achieved?

00:58:14--> 00:58:20

You're putting me on a guilt trip. I feel like empty my free people. People are throwing those out of

00:58:21--> 00:58:24

the way. opportunity for gender.

00:58:25--> 00:59:05

And just asking to be honest on our tables won't tell me how many we have on our table when you're pregnant. Have we ever thought perhaps I will just reduce maybe we are having this Say for example, half a dozen of samosa as we said, we're going to cut this at least a half monitor on a single day every family decides to just maybe it's okay, we say we're going to have maybe after for tonight No, or maybe after second day. We didn't have some roses every day, we will not have mice every one and then there's this organization like Project majda online how how much they're making is we don't even need to go out and look, there are people who are doing that Alhamdulillah if I if I can,

00:59:06--> 00:59:06

yes.

00:59:07--> 00:59:10

If I can add to what you're saying about the other half of it that

00:59:12--> 00:59:38

if you actually giving dates during the month of Ramadan, and somebody is breaking is fast on your data out of them, you get the equal reward of the day of fasting that he gets. You understand so so so number one is the Hadith you are saying that that alpha date could save you from alpha. Now, on top of that, also, that if somebody is breaking the fast with a date, then you're gonna get the same buddy. What is it possible fasting the day? Allahu Akbar the generosity of Allah.

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

It's a profound point that Mara Zak mentions when our our idea of solder commoner, has become so formalized this, we still think like, okay, rich person, give sadaqa I'm not a rich person. I am genuinely not a rich person. I earn and then I eat according to today's standards. Yeah, yes, of course.

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

Of course, like

01:00:02--> 01:00:33

anything, yes. But what I'm saying is like that mindset of people is that only for the rich. But if we just look at our meals, just our meals as an example, my felon, we can take any other example our clothes, our shoes, anything. And we just say, Can we just give a portion of this away? I think there's a hadith that also, I don't remember the exact wording, but it's something like the food one suffices to Yes, yes, to suffices today. Absolutely. I cannot remember

01:00:35--> 01:01:14

his name. Yeah. So so so. So what is actually saying is if even if your poor guy only have enough for yourself to eat, yes, there is a way to actually split that meal so people can eat better. So what I'm thinking is, if everybody actually had that approach, then we would actually be thinking we would be able to alleviate poverty. Obviously, Malina versus this I want to say to you, what I've learned in life, is the 20% of humanity said was 80% of the resources. Yeah, and this is why 80% of people have to starve, and they have to go hungry. But if they, if they if they divided it amongst humanity, nobody would need to die.

01:01:15--> 01:01:32

Achieve, but I mean, the again, it says that we need a mindset, a paradigm shift, as far as like how we think of sadhaka like, Am I sensing like it's only when I'm giving a money donation, and it's only when I'm reaching it's only when I can afford and no just think of every day like she what you've got

01:01:33--> 01:01:49

in the budget that if tough time just take your your bola in blood, but the guy next to you and smile, you understand Yes, wow, the Ebola that you losing there, it's not gonna make a big difference to your stomach. Yeah, but it's gonna make a big difference to you. Don't miss it, the people's blessing

01:01:52--> 01:01:55

is like you can you can touch me but don't Tasha Paula has given because

01:01:57--> 01:02:09

of adultery can save you in jail. Now hamdulillah. And, and you know, in Ramadan, this is just like a personal thing. In the past, I used to, I used to eat way too much if thought. And

01:02:10--> 01:02:39

I mean, I don't anymore. And what I noticed is like, not just if thought, but like, throughout Ramadan, that feeling of hunger that I have during the daytime, makes me feel the benefit of it. And it makes me one to actually feel it more. And then at night, I don't eat as much as I should eat, like, I will still stay kind of, but what I'm saying is that, when you feel the benefit of of sacrificing with the sake of Allah Subhana data,

01:02:40--> 01:02:44

then that feeling there's nothing in the world that can compete to that.

01:02:46--> 01:03:02

All I can say modernize that. Every day did Allah kiss me on this planet? I see more and more of the wisdom of Allah. That one won't have the wisdom of Allah, why Allah said that's why Allah said that. And the difference it makes to the dunya now turns the dunya into a better place.

01:03:03--> 01:03:27

as Muslims, we don't need to know every reason why Allah tells us to do with us and Allah tells us to do that. We just need to have the confidence that Allah wants to be so us know, just do us Allah tells you and He will see the benefit that will accrue to you in the dunya and in the absolutely and Allah knows best. So yeah, I think let us take this as an opportunity in wrapping up after I speak to monitor as i can tell it either.

01:03:30--> 01:03:32

Okay, we're coming to you now Melinda.

01:03:33--> 01:03:36

I just wanted to I just wanted to mention that

01:03:38--> 01:04:03

we have Nine Nights or eight nights to make sure that we gain as much of the opportunities of Ramadan as possible. I think we should be like hungry. We should be integrating again looking for these opportunities between Allah and inshallah try to win the pleasure of Allah spawn is that in years one opportunity already with project manager that is talking about Yes, my loved Razak I'm so sorry about that. No problem.

01:04:06--> 01:04:17

Alhamdulillah with the Baraka with the hanifin Alexia thing is to us. We've also been able to start a Masjid in Hernando, and this is what tabula rasa is referring to, where he takes food regularly. And it takes some finance for some poor individuals over there as well. And in sha Allah, we will also be starting an Islamic Center in greater Russia, which is very close to one another. And all of these efforts apart due to the sacrifices of certain individuals, whether it was in cash, whether it was in kind, or whether it was an effort. And once again, we asked a lot about hiring Baraka in the lives of Allah to give them Jana and Jana in the after her and I'm proud to have been associated in

01:11:45--> 01:12:24

I should be giving most of the call. That's That's exactly what I took from this and in the sense that I said, you know, like, I might not be able to afford cash, but I've got so many things that other people would find beneficial foodstuffs, clothing, etc, etc. Those things can find a much better home then in my cupboard or in my drawers, and the food in my fridge can find much better homes than for it to just go off and then you have to throw it away. Or why did it get stale? And we give it to the people who would accept that type of food? It's no that is not fair. I can actually give sadaqa every day from eating a meal find someone to eat along with me. She my one meal into

01:12:25--> 01:13:02

Subhana Allah so May Allah grant us the realization of those lessons and this beautiful project mellowed to Allah take it from strength to strength and grant that all projects have hired, that during the ceremony, they get the assistance that they need, the financial assistance and the spiritual assistance that they need for them to be prosperous and prosperous, and for all indivisible, higher, to be prosperous.
