Nara Monahan hamdulillah salatu salam ala rasulillah Mara Samana, so I want to live our cattle.
Thank you for joining the class. Today inshallah we will continue talking about the books in the Maliki school of thought. We mentioned that
in the Maliki school of thought we have a motto, which is the book that was compiled by Imam Malik Rahim Allah based on the recommendation of an Imam and Maddie. And then they asked him Malik to write something and the more thought was written, and in the Maliki school of thought,
this is the famous book. Al Motta, it's actually it's actually had
almost more than 130
countries on it, only on al Motta, so any book that explains that more but his book of fish in the Metalab of Imam Malik Rahim Allah, this is one of the books we have then we will have Alec Sharif Mata Lima Malik. Then we have al Madonna
and Madonna. It is the opinions of Imam Malik Rahim Allah
as it was written by his student under a man of no costume.
Now a Madonna has a story.
And Madonna has a story.
And because of all Madonna, we have many people following the Maliki school of thought in Africa in the north of Africa. Because there is a student, his name is sandstone.
He took another one. Now Imam Malik Rahim Allah, he had many students of them Andromeda and one of them as an admin for us. As a digital for art.
He studied with Imam Malik and he wrote down all the opinions of Imam Malik Rahim Allah, and he took a Madonna to Africa. Now people wanted to learn from it.
But he refused to give it to them. He said, I have the copyrights. I worked hard on it, so I will not give it to you. So what happened? So Shannon went back to Egypt lab drama Ben Carson.
And he asked him about the opinions, opinions of Imam Malik, he told him about as a demand for art because he heard the Madonna from a certain format. So I'm Robin Qasim, he verified and he added few things to Al Madonna. And nowadays people only know the copy of certain they don't know
the copy of a certain format. Why? They always say, knowledge, if you want knowledge, do you want to benefit from knowledge, you have to spread it you have to give it to the people. Knowledge does not decrease by giving it to people actually it's going to increase. So nowadays people know the Madonna of social known.
That's why it is common in the
north of Africa. At some people, they have bigotry towards the middle one and they say some of them of course which is not correct. They say there is no ruling
on earth except that it is mentioned in that model one nothing whether it's halal or haram, except that it's mentioned in the model one and of course, this is exactly exaggeration. That's not true.
Allah subhanaw taala did not ask us to follow on the Madonna course it's a great book in America. himolla is a great amount but that does not mean we have to follow every single thing written in Alma when all scholars agree that they have shortcomings all scholars asked everybody to follow the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu wasallam. That's about the Maliki school of thought. Then we move to the Shafi school of thought.
Imam Shafi Rahim Allah He was born in the year 150
of Hadrian. Phaedra
Do you know any significance of that year 150.
And he died in the year 200 for 204. So he doesn't he did not live that live that much. He lived only for 54 use the United significance of the year 150.
Yes, who said that?
She had his
who said that online?
Yes, Saba. That's correct. And also Sara said the same thing. It's the year that demandable hanifa died 150 and actually some hanafy said because Allah subhanaw taala did not want to have to grid scholars alive.
At the same time, that's why shafia was kept
in the womb of his mother for two years. Of course, again, this is another thing, alum if it's true or not, but Imam Shafi was born in the 150 and he died in the year two or four. He was born in Gaza,
Palestine, but he's originally from Mecca, because his relative to the messenger sallallahu sallam,
and his father died early.
So he lived as an orphan. His mother took him when he was two years, she took him to Mecca
to keep track of their the ancestry of her son. She feared that if she kept him in Gaza, he will be lost. his lineage will be lost. So she wanted to bring him back to Mecca.
And also she wanted to teach him
so he started learning
from early age and he memorized the entire Quran when he was seven years old. When he was seven, he memorized the entire Quran.
And we will talk more about Imam Shafi Rahim Allah, since we will study his school of thought, but I want you to know these facts for now.
And we will move to Imam Ahmed Rahim Allah.
Before we go back to remember Shafi. Muhammad was born in the year 164.
And he died in the year 241.
He was contemporary to himself and actually he learned from Eman Shafi. He learned a lot from Imam Shafi Rahim Allah. Notice His name is Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Hanban. So his father's name is not tambon. While people say that they've been humble, because his grandfather was famous. That's why they say I might have been humble. While his actual name is Ahmed bin Mohammed, they've been humble
he lived in Baghdad
and he is of course the man of file. So now Gemma is very famous. He had to go through the trial of the creation of Quran during the Mata Zilla time, the Khalifa moon
he tested the mammoth actually a madman was tortured by the Khalifa
by his soldiers, just to say one word to say that the Quran is created. And he refused to say that that was innovation in religion, to say that the Quran is mahalo. He refused. And he was tortured. He was in prison. But he persevered. And the Holika they all died and he remain now people. They don't like those who did that to him, but they mentioned him with only good things. They mentioned him. So once you are in trial, do not think of the test itself. Think of the consequences. What will happen later on
that will help you overcome
From the students of management, we have amendment Buhari that's why some ahaadeeth in the Buhari. It is narrated from Mr. Mohammed Mala.
And also Abu Dawood, the Imam of
the sunan of Abu Dawood salamander mineshaft suggests Danny is a student of Imam Mohammed also. So he had lots of students.
We have the books of Imam Ahmed in the field of international Rahim Allah as I told you, American Kodama himself only only one Imam he wrote four books in four different levels
um that will fit
a cafe and mocha and
all these four books are from for Amanda and Kodama and MK DC Rahim Allah.
Then we have very important book called kuttabul in South America, Raj Minar.
The unique thing about this book Allen soft
it mentioned all the narrations, all the different opinions from him and Ramallah. One thing I like you to know about the method of measurement, that some scholars did not consider a measurement as 40. They only considered him as a scholar of Hadith.
Therefore, in some books of the last when they mentioned the several opinions, they only mentioned three opinions. They don't mention the fourth opinion the opinion of Mohammed,
they say this is the opinion of Abu hanifa. This is the opinion of Malik. This is the opinion of Shafi. They don't mention the opinion of Imam Ahmed
Why they said the management was not 40 he was muhaddith, which means he only cared about Hadith. Actually, he was 40. But there is a problem in the opinion of Imam Ahmed. It changed lots of times. That's why in sometimes in one issue, you have three different opinions for
this book, I'll insaf it listed all the different opinions of a man.
he answers with Hadith, when he is asked about the same issue, and he answers with a different Hadith
on the third time, he also answers with the same with the different Hadith. So you have many opinions.
And it became troublesome for some students.
That's why some scholars they said international was muhaddith he was not 40. So the film is only in the three schools of thought. But later on, of course, in the opinion of remember what Mr. Hammond became famous and it prevailed. Now, it became also very common and you have lots of books, especially these books, they are written and people are still studying them,
and moaning and mocking out on and fill in soft as well.
And of course, there are many other books.
The most important book in the field of management is money. Money is very big book, because it listed all the four opinions, opinions of Emmanuel hanifa pinions of magmatic opinions of human Shafi and opinion of management, but the problem with this book, it's advanced, it's not for the beginners.
That's why some people they start with alimony
and they will never understand this because they don't start from the top. You start from the beginning.
You start with first book, then the second he himself the the author who wrote this book, he told the students do not start with it. This is the end.
Now we go back to the Imam Shafi Rahim Allah
so we already said he was born in Gaza. When he was two years old, he moved to
Mecca. When he was seven years old, he memorized the entire Quran.
He memorized a lot for Mr. Malik when he was nine years old.
When he was 10 years old, I'm sorry, in Nine Nights.
It took him Nine Nights only to memorize a lot but one week and two days when he was 10 years old.
The ability for memorization of enamel shafia was amazing. It was said that he used to cover
the second page if he opens the book, he covers the second page because once he looks to one page, he memorize it. So he did not want to mix the two pages. He memorizes this then he covers this and memorize the second page, just like the copier. Once you put the page it photocopies it that's the memory of Imam Shafi.
Although that was his ability for memorization, he complained to his Sheikh workI admin Jarrah. He told him my memorization is not that good. He wanted to memorize faster and quicker.
So if I'm sure he had great ability for memorization, he memorized a lot. But when he was 10 years old, he memorized it in Nine Nights.
He had a teacher in Makkah, his name Khalid Ibn Muslim zingy.
in Makkah, he had a teacher who used to teach him and he noticed when he mama Shafi reached the age of 15, he told him now it's time for you to give photo. Now you should not be a student anymore. You should actually start giving fatwa to the people you should start teaching people
phallic when Muslim is xinji. He was the Mufti of Mecca. He was the one who gives the fatwa in Mecca. So he told his students he told him Shafi It's time for you now to give the photos Yes.
Khalid when Muslim zingy.
That's the name of his teacher Khalid Muslim zingy.
And then he moved
to Medina before he moves to back that
he moved to Medina
because once he noticed that in Mecca, he got everything from his safe. Now he wanted more. Imam Malik was famous in Medina. So he went to Mr. Malik to learn from him.
And at the beginning, Mr. Malik did not want him because he already had students
Mr. Malik did not like someone to recommend a student for him because
the prince of Makkah, he wrote a letter to Mr. Malik, and he told him if you accept the student is a good student, Mr. Malik did not like that. So at the beginning, Mr. Malik did not want him, but when Imam Shafi insisted Malik asked him to read,
he told him take a mocha and read. So Imam Shafi started reading from his memory. So in my Malik like that, and he told him, You will be something in the future. from that.
And later on, he became his best student, Imam Shafi Rahim Allah He but he became the best student for him and Malik in the circle of Imam Malik in his class, no one would dare to say something back to Mr. Malik.
But remember Shafi sometimes he used to
ask him about something
like one time, my mother gave the federal
for a man who told his wife
You are divorced, if you
are not more beautiful than the moon
at their time, they did not know how the moon looks like they only saw light so it was a sign of beauty. So Mr. Malik said she is divorced because she is not more beautiful than the moon. Ma'am Shafi came to him and he told him Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, indeed we have created
the human being in the West chip la Canal in Santa Fe aqui. So Mr. Malik said You're right.
So, other students did not say anything back to Mr. Malik, but the mom Shafi Rahim Allah, He said that, now notice Imam Shafi he was in Azusa
and he went to Mecca. He remained there
for like 13 years, until he learned everything there. Then he moved to Medina. Then later on, he moved to but that because but that also was the center of knowledge. It was the political capital for Islamic State. So he went there, there were lots of scholars there. The students of Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah like Mohammed Ahmed, Hassan shibani, remember what we said about him? and others. So he wanted to take from them. Look how these scholars they want, they look for the real knowledge, they did not feel it's enough. Even though his teacher himself told him now you are eligible to become a teacher. He did not want that want to get more and more until he feels that he got
everything. So he went about that for two years. And in that he established his school of thought there.
The old opinion of Imam Shafi was established in Baghdad, and he had students there of them was Mr. Mohammed, Allah, mathematic from Imam Shafi. Then
he moved back
to Medina. Then he went back to that, and after that, he went to Egypt. And he remained in Egypt
until he died in the year, two or four.
He was there for like six years or less in Egypt.
So now notice in a Shafi went from Mecca
to Medina, to back that to Mecca again, then to Baghdad then to Egypt.
So he traveled a lot
in Egypt, what happened?
In Egypt, Imam Shafi Rahim Allah changed all his school of thought.
And it was became known as a notable Jedi the new school of thought of Imam Shafi the new method. So we have Natalia Kadeem, and we have another humble Jedi. We have the old school of thought and the new school of thought.
That's the reason why
in areas we are studying the madhhab of Imam Shafi. There is a great lesson.
Imam Shafi when he established his school of thought in Baghdad, he was already a scholar, grid scholar. He studied in Mecca. His teacher witnessed that his students became a chef qualified, he went to Medina he learned from Imam Malik, then he went to Baghdad, so he's already a scholar.
And he established his own school of thought yet when he moved back to Egypt, what happened? He changed the entire school of thought, Why?
Why did he do that? Because the environment was different nowadays, nowadays
People move from Asia from Africa. They come to the Western countries and they keep the same things.
Now I'm not telling you what whatever was halal, you make it haram or whatever is haram. You make it halal, but you you learn to become flexible. As I'm shafia Ronaldo, the entire school of thought was changed in Egypt at their time, they did not have too many differences. Like nowadays, you have very advanced countries, civilized countries, and you have poor countries. At that time, most of the things were similar, but still Imam Shafi changed the entire school of thought. So you learn from this that Islam is flexible. We don't discuss the fundamentals.
What's established is haram, but the things that are acceptable to be changed Hong Kong. So it was significant that in our Shama, he changed his entire school of thought
There is a great lesson and that will help us to think the way that Imam Shafi Rahim Allah, so this is the reason why
we chose to teach the method of minimum Shafi. The other reason of course, that's not the only reason the other reason Imam Shafi his method was very well served, it was served very well. You have many books, and the method from Shafi even though other other schools of thought all schools of thought Imam Malik Muhammad, Eman, Abu hanifa they all have many books, but the AMA Shafi in particular, we have many books in Arabic and in English.
So, this is another reason why we chose the method of Imam Shafi and as I told you, this is only a temporary stage for this year, we will study only that does not mean you have to follow but it is a key for you to understand that. We will study the method only the matter of mannschaft next year inshallah, we will move forward to this to the other schools of thought.
That's about the Imam Shafi and we will talk later on about our book, The text of Abuja and the commentary on it the evidences. Now we will move to the levels of jurists Remember what we said that people are divided to three categories.
layman, students of knowledge and scholar. Now we have the scholars in the madhhab itself.
Inside the method, one method, we have different levels of fuqaha or jurists, and these levels vary from app to another.
And the amount of shuffle we have the people who are able to do each day,
but remember, this is within them. So this is the highest level.
Behind the Imam Shafi Rahim Allah like Al Madani and moves on he was a student of Imam Shafi Rahim Allah.
So, he was able to add few things and whatever he adds, it is added to the method itself, it becomes the method. Now, once we save the map, that means whether it is the saying of Imam Shafi or it's his opinion,
but in the meta, but remember Shafi also whatever moves on he says, it is added to the meta because he's able to know what would imagine chef a say
about this issue, even if he has not asked about it. Now Shafi already died in Amazon, he did some he had, he did some work, wherever he said it was added to the map. So that's the first level. Then we have the second level, the people who are able to do each Jihad within the issues while it's not reported from the man
like aloha Sally, this is a lower level lower than a ma'am Amazon
they are able to do which they had within the issues.
So, there is an issue that is mentioned for the Imam Shafi, but he did not say his opinion, you notice the difference between this one and the previous one, the previous one, the issue is new is totally new.
The second one, the issue is not new, it was reported but
the opinion itself was not reported from Imam Shafi. So they are lower than the first level. Like Imam Al ghazali, Mohammed Al ghazali. He had three books.
Albacete Allah says in the method of Imam Shafi
he was much the head inside the math lab of Imam Shafi. When we have the third level, people have the courage the courage means choosing one opinion
Those can explain a saying of the Imam or specify two things mentioned.
What do you mean both?
Can I give example of both What do you mean by both?
Keep the questions later on.
Now we have the people of HD hat inside the madhhab
like a madman was any
and we have the people
who are able to do is to have within the issues.
These issues were there, but it was the opinion was not reported from Imam Shafi Rahim Allah. Let's say nowadays,
we have coke we have many things. We're not at the time of Muhammad Shafi Mammon was that he could say this is permissible. And now we will say that's the opinion of Imam Shafi even though he did not say it but because mammal moosonee that says level is able to know what if you manage if it was alive, what would he say?
While Allah Khazali
is able to discuss the issues that were there at the time of Imam Shafi but there is no opinion at all for exam shuffle.
The third level people have read those who can explain a thing of the Imam or specify two things mentioned. Like if you mama chef, they said this is my crew. They are able to come and say macro means Haram. He did not mean macro, he meant Haram. They had some terms used in the method. So that's the job of the people of the third level. And we have the people of the last level people of
those who are able to choose one of the two opinions like Rafi or Amanda never we now know your I'ma holla.
is able to choose like we have two opinions of Imam Shafi. Michelle ferry once said, this is haram. In another time, he said this is my crew. Now which one do you choose? haram or mcru. That's the job of the last level they are able to tell you that macro is the correct opinion according to according to the school of thought if mom Shafi according to the other things, that's what you should follow.
They do tarji that means they choose one of the two opinions, while the previous level
they clarify they specify an amateur referee said this is my crew, they are able to say my crew here does not mean this like it means haram
This is a higher level, then we have the higher level level of nominal ezeli
the people who do is to have within the issues of the method.
And then we have the highest level the level of amendment was any people who are doing able to do which they had just like Imam Shafi he gave his opinion they can give their own opinions but whatever they give it is within the matter of a female chef in
This is advanced level, you will know it next year.
What's the difference between this human man that Imam but I just wanted you to know that even within the first the each each method, even within each method, we have different levels of people. And you have nowadays people they come and they put themselves on the same level of Imam Shafi
or a mammoth.
I'm not saying this is impossible, it's possible but you have to go through the steps.
In military, you don't become column
out of the Southern before you serve like 2030 years, you serve 30 years just to get raised to get this right.
General or Colin, what about
the religion of Islam? You want from day one to become scholar and you think you will understand everything? That's not going to happen?
If you follow this way, but inshallah if you follow the way of the scholars, Yes, why not? Islam is not restricted to a certain group of people, whoever did the study good for him.
No one can stop you.
So we mentioned the reasons why we chose the method of Imam Shafi first because he was able to travel and he knew a lot. He changed
based on the environment, the mom Shafi, the mother is very well served
And one important point he combined between chaos and Hadith. What do you mean by that? Now because the Imam Shafi Rahim Allah traveled a lot.
in Medina, Imam Malik, he used to give the fatwa sometimes based on the Hadith Malik was muhaddith also used to generate lots of a hadith. When Imam Imam Shafi traveled to Iraq,
the method of Namo hanifa was common, it was prevailing
and of course, the method of memorable hanifa was based on mostly based on the Ts. Now Mr. Malik learn to remember Shafi learned from Imam Malik, he saw another school of thought so he tried to combine between the that's why the school of thought Shafi is like the mean of other schools of thought. This is another reason why we are studying this school of thought.
Nowadays, mostly when you say this is the opinion of Imam Shafi based on what Imam and now he said, mama now he came later on, he wrote lots of books in the method of Imam Shafi, even though we know he lived only for 45 years, also nominally was very young, but it's the blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala almost every Muslim house they have one of the books of nominally at least three other solid him, Do you have real solid a new house
or are buying in our area
90% of Muslim people, they have his book and he lived only for 45 years, and we have some Muslims living for 90 years 100 years, what did they produce for the Muslim oma? So, this is actually the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala for Imam Naui
whatever Imam now, he said later on, it was considered that this is the method of Imam Shafi.
Now, I want you to know these books, the madaba phenomena Shafi, we mentioned at least at least you have to know at least two to three books in each method to know and at least you have to have one book from each method also.
You should work on that.
Now, these books I want you to know these books from the math of humanity. Shafi. Of course, we have and much more
and much more is the Book of Mormon now Rama Allah Himself. However, he did not continue with he died before completing this book. Then came another amount of Suki.
He continued one volume and then again he died. They said if much more was completed, it would have become the greatest book and
the first chapters are great. It's very similar to alimony. It also mentions the four schools of thought and much more and alimony excellent books. But and money is better because it's completed book and much more is not completed. later on. Only recently it was completed by one of the scholars
from Egypt. And you will notice the difference like when you have a great scholar like Imam unknowing writing something, first chapters and then at the end, you have a recent scholar, it's all subtly different.
So I'll match more.
The intention was to mention all the schools of thought.
Then we have Albion Albion is a great book. It's also
according to the force four schools of thought. But Emanuel and Ronnie who wrote this book Albion he died early,
like 300 years earlier than a monopoly. That's why a man no he, he had a better chance to read more books to know better about the method of Imam Shafi. However, even this book, Albion is a great book actually nominally in and much more, him many times he referred to Albion refer to the book of lm Ronnie, I have both books, both of them in Arabic, unfortunately, the I don't think you have
book of fifth Big Book of American English. I don't know what do we have? Do you know any books of fit in English? Big books, not one textbook, big books.
For kosuna is is like three volumes.
Fixed soon that is good, but it's not valid for students of knowledge to learn from it.
You need to learn the essentials the basics. fiction is not good. Yes, you can have it you can read from it. It's good, but it will not help you to seek the knowledge if you want to seek the knowledge
And of course, lastly, we have our book, The text of Abuja, the text of publisher is very small book, actually. It's only like 90 pages. And again, that's how you start. In fact, you start only with the text,
then you move on.
You start even without knowing the evidence, because first you want to establish the ruling. Then the next step, you add the evidence, then the next step, you start rationalizing why this is the evidence, and the last step to compare between this opinion and the opinion of other scholars. So it's almost four steps in fifth.
And even this, actually, I believe, here, we are rushing these steps a little bit, we will start almost from the second step.
Which is knowing the rolling with the evidence. Usually, that's how they start first, you know, drooling. And I asked, I asked all of you about things that we do every day, and I did not get the perfect answer
about how many things and validate will
hear in the book, we will learn that there are six things invalidate will do. So you have it in mind, six things invalidate we'll do 123456
then you move on, what's the evidence 1234 these are the evidences, then the next step, why this invalidates will do? Then you compare? What about other scholars? Is it six or five? But what happens Nowadays, people come and they say, oh, in management, it's five mannschaft a six, and then you're confused, you don't even know.
I'm talking about things that we do every single day, every day. Prayer, pillars of prayer, how many pillars do we have? I did not get perfect answer. Some said three, standing record.
Some said more, some siblings. So you need to know here in the book, it tells you there are 18 pillars and the prayer
or 12 pillars, some of them are repeated, like for sure. It was considered the nature cast separately. And the niche in the record show and record is different than the PM. If you consider the whole show all of it one then it is 12. So you know, there are 12 things. Once you know that you memorize that there are 12 things, they are pillars in the prayer. If you did anything in the prayer, you will ask yourself directly Is it one of these four things? If it is then you have to do it again, otherwise your prayer is incorrect. If it's not, then you move on is it Rajat? So I have to do salute Sal, or his son. So it's recommended to do that's how you start. As I told you,
nowadays, you find lots of people tell you we have the evidence, we have to know the evidence which is okay. But that's not the correct method. They go to this opinion and that opinion and they are confused. But once you start step by step, you will get solid knowledge inshallah. That's how we will do it here in the class and I believe you will notice this inshallah soon maybe next week, you will start noticing the difference and the method of teaching the fifth.
Of course, we will start with the book of purification.
This is the first thing that we will start with inshallah, the book of purification, kitahara
or the ritual purification.
And we will stop at the definition of taharah. What's the definition of purification? What does it mean?
taharah means purification.
That's the translation, not the meaning. I want the meaning of the Hara
linguistically, what does it mean? bahara do you know
cleanliness or even purification? That's the linguistic meaning of the Hara.
Cleaning yourself from the gesture. Okay. What about islamically? Or religiously? What's the meaning of the hora and Islam how you are considered fire?
When you base yourself when you take a shower,
how you consider fire?
I want answers. Now. We started now with this.
Away from sins. So if you're away from sins, you're considered by her. So you pray if you're away from sins, you pray, how are we how many miles away?
But do you think
did at least she answered you have to answer yes.
From the jaza and this belief, what do you mean by data from the data?
A movement is never impure. That's good. But again, you're not answering the question. What's the definition of? What do we mean by definition? Remember, as I told you, you have to include all the things that are relevant to the issue and you have to exclude anything that is irrelevant, which means by the definition of tahara, you know that, according to this definition, whoever did it, he can pray, he can read the Quran, he can do any act of Riba. Without it, he cannot do any of these things. So now when you tell me, the woman is never impure, what does this have to do with with my question, what's the definition of Bahar? islamically? Yes.
To be pure from anything that is the opposite of
Well, we're going in circles he did not answer
that's coming in.
You need to know what's the hardest so you know what purifies you? What gives you the purification?
Only water What about
the sand? The dust.
That's why some people think bahara means doing Judo and Muslim. In Islam, if you cannot do and also even tempo is tahara. In Arabic, it's easy, but in English Actually, it's a big issue. In Arabic we say about four Hadith is Allah to cover. That's the definition of Torah.
Refer Hadith is Allah to cover. But this is an Arabic but in English, there is a problem. So that will be your job. Try to define the Sahara islamically.
Yeah, because we have weakened that's why I'm giving you some gifts.
Yeah, so inshallah, your job is to define the heart. This is a homework. It's due by Monday. What's the definition of taharah? islamically?
purification the body from impure substances. That's not enough that's required, but it's not enough. Because now, do you see any
impure substance on me?
Do you see any impure substance on me? Yet I may not be positive
in a sense that I may not be able to pray.
Yes, it is required. If you have any impure substance, you cannot pray. That's not enough.
So we will end with this huddle. So allow Solomon and hamadryas
