No hamdulillah Hamdan Kiran

hamdu Lillah wa salatu wa salam O Allah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what Allah Allah He was happy he was what he remembered
Deborah's sisters, we think Allah subhanho wa Taala
that he made it possible for us to execute this program, even though
we just gave the flyers and the tickets out just two weeks ago
and even though
I was in Dubai for five of those days and just came back day before yesterday, and even though we had absolutely no money
and even though
many people discouraged us from doing that, while while while
but Allah subhanho wa Taala says to us in the Quran, Allah is the man and
woman ye tequila,
Zoo man hi Zoo
woman you're talkin Allah ma
for who Hospital
in actuality this program is the beginning of a project which is called purpose initiative.
Myself and a few other oh geez.
Just like old guys.
old generation old gangsters.
A few people.
we said to ourselves, the Messenger of a lost lost them said
that most of his own money will leave this world between 60 and 70.
And since I'm 67, that means I'm on my way for sure.
And many of us were on our way and many of us we over debt,
so that we have to begin preparing
to pass the responsibility on to the next generation.
So about one month ago,
when my wife and I decided to move from Seattle, to San Diego,
I sat with a group of brothers.
And I'm sorry, sisters, I didn't sit with you.
But I sat with a group of brothers because we were in the mosque. And I know eventually, when you sit with brothers, it's gonna wind up with the sisters too.
And we talked about transferring this responsibility,
and the magnitude and the scope of transferring the responsibility of Islam in America.
I had the same conversation in Uganda. Three years ago, I had the same conversation in Oman. Two years ago, I had the same conversation this year, in Abuja, in Nigeria, I had the same conversation in Holland, in Amsterdam, I had the same conversation in Stockholm, I had the same conversation in about seven or eight other countries.
And so we decided that since this conversation is already been held,
it's already a consensus. I spoke to my teachers, though, my mentors, they told me,
if this is a burning desire, concern in your heart,
you to shape it, you need to form it. You need to gather some young people together, and you need to transfer it.
So what is the purpose initiative? Number one, we are encouraging young people all over the world, Muslims and their non Muslim friends to do a life plan.
We didn't say go to school. We didn't say finish school. You should be doing that if you got common sense anyway.
But there are people in this audience who graduated postgraduate, they've been working for 30 or 40 years, very successful, but they still do not have a life plan.
The most successful people materially in this world today, those who have a life plan.
It's not rocket science.
That Japan, and Singapore and India and China, I mean, people who are basically either they are mushrikeen, or they are pagans, or they are people who disbelieve in Allah subhanaw taala. All together, but Allah is just isn't he? A lot of justice.
Because those people are teaching and preaching their children, including the Yahoo, these men on the left, they are teaching and preaching to their children, you have to have a life plan as a result of their having life plans for the last 3040 years. Most of the products and services that we use as Muslims here and all over the Muslim world, they are produced Where?
China, Korea, Singapore, Japan, India.
Why? Because those people have a life plan. And the law is just whoever plans properly, a loss of power to Allah, He gives him the result of the plans.
Another rule brothers and sisters, and be honest with yourself, how many of you have a life plan? Now, a life plan means not you thought about it. A life plan means that you thought about it, you research it, you designed it, you put it into writing, you double spaced it and you discussed it with somebody like your parents, or teacher or a mentor and you have it inside your heart. You got it inside your mind, and you look at it every day. How many of you have a life plan? Please let me see.
subhanaw taala there's the answer. You think because you pray, or you say,
because you're good people, you're going to succeed in the race of life. You're not going to succeed in the race of life. We may get Jenna by the grace of Allah. But Allah subhanaw taala did not send us in this world just for the agenda. He sent us into this world here to do the best that we can do. Leah Balu welcome I eucom Arsenal Amala.
the purpose initiative
has been put together.
And we hope that within the next 30 days that we will have at least a 30 core group, at least 20 Brothers, least 10 sisters, or maybe 20 brothers and 20 sisters, but a core group of young people who are what, first, they have a life plan.
Once they have a life plan, we will start to do what is called critical thinking workshops. What is it called?
critical thinking workshops,
there will be about 30 or 40 of those workshops that you can take once you have a life plan.
Those that do the best, those that perform the best in those critical thinking workshops, we will then motivate them, we will nominate them to become part of a global Think Tank, what's the goal?
So what's the three steps of the purpose initiative?
First is what
life plan number two is what
critical thinking workshops. Number three,
a global Think Tank. Because if Muslims learn to critically think Muslims will not react, Muslims will learn to respond
when Muslims learn to respond, and we also have a think tank that we respond based upon Good thinking,
then Muslims will inherit the responsibility of the society.
These young people that we believe in the next year 2014, we expect 10,000 young people, Muslims and non Muslims to complete a life plan
in over 10 countries.
We believe that at least 5000 of those 10,000 are going to complete at least 10 critical thinking workshops.
And we believe at least 100
from every country is going to be part of the global Think Tank.
And we believe because of that,
the 4700 massages that's in America in the next five to 10 years, they're going to be passed over to whom
who's going to be passed over to
the young people who have a life plan, the young people who also have learned to critically think and the young people who also
are being guided by a think tank. Yes, there are also young people that tre young people that perform hajj and young people that are good people and young people that are working and young people that are educated young people that have this and that but if they don't have these three, they're not going to be able to succeed or prevail in the society. You get my drift.
You feel me.
You feel me.
mfu Masha Allah to Allah Allah. So brothers and sisters, this purpose initiative, this is not an initiative for old guys and old girls. Now, you can be a part of it as a mentor, as a guide,
as Oh gee.
But this purpose initiative, this is for young people.
We don't want to argue with the people who are holding on to the chairs, one day, they're gonna fall out of the chair.
And they're going to be put in a box. And they will be walked and put inside the ground. And we're going to pray for them. And those chairs are going to be empty and who's going to sit in those chairs.
Another group of people, you.
So brothers and sisters, I don't have a lot to say. But what I want to say to use this.
We Muslims have all the resources that we need intellectual, financial, technological, and otherwise, but it is of little benefit to us as individuals. We must become allies and supporters. The law says what's our know, allow during water.
We have to become allies and supporters of each other.
And we have to be ready to make sacrifices for this Dean as our sister She said,
we have to make the commitment to give the Dow up because if you don't give the Dow what you have not completed your responsibility.
You have to invite towards Islam.
You have to live as a real Muslim
with a real Islamic behavior with a real objective.
wanting to do something to make a contribution to your society making a contribution
To your family, making a contribution to your community, and therefore making a contribution to the
We have to pray for unity. Unity just doesn't come because we talk about it.
We have to pray for strength. And we will have the healer for the Sri Lanka, a word that most of us we are discouraged to say or to talk about, we can dream about Islamic State. And we can dream about the hereafter. But this a lava and Islamic State is not a dream, it is a reality. But it has to come about through people who themselves have the resources.
or Muslim brothers and sisters, we have to, we have the right to have a global representative. We have a right to have a representative of the Muslims in America, we have the right to expect to have a leader for the Muslims in California, we have a right to expect that there is a leader for the Muslims in San Diego, we have a right to expect that. And that's not a gene, that's a responsibility.
And we have to counsel each other and counsel our families and about brotherhood and we have to eat together. The black and white, the tall and the short, the rich and the poor. The Africans in the Asians and the Arabs in the Americans and others we have to eat together.
We have to do business together. And we want to live together not in little secular, cultural, ethnic pockets, and come to the mosque. As hypocrites acting like we're brothers and sisters know,
we have to visit each other. study together, do business together, live together and into marry your sons and daughters. Not whom you want them to marry but whom they want to marry. With your permission.
Muslim brothers and sisters, this will create a new society of Muslims.
I see in my dream and we have all the right to dream. I see in my dream,
a new generation with a new inspiration. I'm gonna kick it like you my brother for men.
I'm talking to my brother.
So plan heavy ammo Kiki like you for me.
I see in my dream a new generation with a new inspiration.
I see challenges facing Muslims, newly inspired Muslims and also the young Muslims. And there's not much difference between a new Muslim, a newly inspired Muslim and a young Muslim, they all got the same problems.
It is a fact that a large portion of the nearly 7.8 million Muslims in North America are young Muslims, new Muslims and second generation newly inspired Muslims. So who are newly inspired Muslims? These are young Muslims of the sons and daughters of the immigrants who just discovered Islam.
Today these Muslims are facing challenges including crime, violence, social disadvantage, teenage pregnancy. Yes.
I just got a call two days ago, from a young sister saying to me that she's pregnant, she doesn't know what to do.
And the young brother that made her pregnant, doesn't want to marry her.
And she's pregnant but her mom and dad they don't know. And guess what? That young sister. She's not some kind of outcast. She's the daughter of a leader of the Muslims. But that leader is not going to tell us that
sapan Allah, she's only one of hundreds of brothers and sisters, who is hanging out into hookah shops
and got hooked up and cooked up.
We are suffering from illiteracy racism, low self esteem, drug and alcohol abuse, cultural stagnation and ideological extremism. To meet and overcome these massive challenges. These Muslims need a variety of tools and resources and brothers and sisters. They're not in the mosque. They're not under the rug and they're not in the minaret.
And this court is not talking by itself is not going to solve problems for you. But knowledge is here but you got to take it out and you got to apply it with real tools and resources. Otherwise, you will die holding on to a piece of paper.
That's not what Islam is about.
the set of lectures, this event is designed to hopefully motivate and inspire these Muslims to redirect their lives, to reevaluate themselves to make decisions that will assist them to become socially responsible, assertive, and productive. Am I talking to somebody here?
Am I talking to someone here is my message reaching somebody? Can I see some hands please.
Because this is not about talk about transfer
is about cashing checks.
This by cheddar cheese,
this boss success.
This is about influence. This is about taking advantage.
This is about having the higher ground. This is about becoming successful and being winners. This is about being a leader that people choose you to be that you choose to be a leader. That's what we're talking about. Considering these big challenges facing these Muslims, it is imperative that we become proactive, and expeditious because we are losing the race of time, the choice is clear. And I want to emphasize the matter to everyone that can hear you feel me.
Brothers and sisters.
graphics that you have seen on the screen here
that you have seen looping, it's been a lot of graphics, maybe you don't even know what they are. But we have been showing you the graphics of purpose of life foundation.
For the last 25 years, we have been circling the globe back and forth, back and forth, trying to remove misconceptions and distortions about Islam and Muslims we've done a little bit.
This is about the purpose of Media Group has that has produced purpose TV and now working on creating a media
joint venture with five or six or seven different agencies that will create content that anybody in the world Muslim or non Muslim will want to watch. And when you choose to watch, it doesn't matter what language you speak, on the side, you will choose the language that you want out of 10 languages, and the subtitles will come automatically. Have you seen something like that? We're working on that now. And this is not like TV, religious TV. This is like
the most watched channel in the world for now.
For now, this is about purpose initiative,
an initiative that has come about because we want to pass responsibility on to young people by telling them get a life
Get a life What?
Huh. And after that, start thinking what critically.
And then once you arrive at the ability to think critically, you start writing white papers, research papers, and you join a global Think Tank.
This is about purpose elearning.
We went to Dubai because we have a partner there in Dubai, who is going to help us to launch purpose e learning. So those sisters who wants to study 30 or 40 different subjects and earn certificates. But you can't travel because you don't have a Muslim. Well, you won't need a Muslim because it will come to you right over your computer and you get a certificate in three months, six months, nine months or one year.
young brothers and sisters who want to study Islam, you don't have to travel all over the world and become compromised and become
You have to leave your homes and leave your jobs and leave your families and go somewhere else, you know, on some kind of global track and stay somewhere six or eight years in Bangladesh or Pakistan or Saudi Arabia or Yemen or somewhere else. And come back not even understanding your country.
Because you will be able to study that through what purpose elearning
we have just embarked upon a movie that's going to cost about $30 million. And some people say shake this is [???] you already in debt. What are you talking about?
Check. You've given up envelopes. You're trying to raise money and stay alive. You're talking about a movie that costs 30 million. I tell them brothers, it's my life. It's my book.
It's somebody else's money.
You feel me
We are on the way to doing this movie. It's not about Malcolm X. It's about the last 47 years of my life.
And what I perceive to be the answers that we have to give to the world concerning Islam and the world, about America and Islam, and about the critical issues facing humanity, I believe
that if God gives me the life this film,
it will surpass it will probably be one of the major films of the 21st century. That's what my mentors and people are telling me.
We hope that you will pray for that that allow Just give me a little bit few few more years.
This is about purpose TV, this is about cis challenge your soul.
And alternative to facade book, excuse me, Facebook.
This is about
a search engine that belongs to us, or a filter that we create a make a partnership with Google so that with that filter, you take that software filter, put it in your home, you can use Google and no trash will come.
But this is about IP media, webcasting all over the world and monetizing that webcast so that we don't have to beg for no money.
Do you feel what I'm saying?
Having said that, brothers and sisters, we have run out of time. And when you run out of time, guess what it's like running out of breath. When you run out of breath, it's like the last heartbeat.
It means the end, it means it's over.
So brothers and sisters, listen to make all this work, I want to be very honest with you. We have paid the $6,600 it costs us to be here. And we don't want to go to no ragtop place. We could not afford to give you you know, chicken biryani and roasted duck and whatever else that you might have expected for $10. I'm sorry.
But we did our best.
And we brought you to a place that you have been before. You can see the quality of the place.
You can see the decency of the people.
And we spent that money before we sold any tickets. Because we believe that this was something we had to do. I didn't take it from my pocket. I got it from people, just like yourselves.
And brothers and sisters, what we did by your coming we didn't even break even. But we're not worried about the money. What we're worried about? Is our relationship with the loss of $1 did we do our job?
So to make everything balanced itself out brothers and sisters, there's an envelope that you have, can I see the envelope please? Can I see the envelope I'll make sure you get behind.
Okay, there's no address on it. They no telephone on it. So it's not the kind of envelope that you put inside and make it like you're gonna get back to us later.
No, the envelope is given take, we give it to you. And we take it back right now.
Now if you don't think that the purpose of life foundation purpose Media Group, if you don't think that purpose initiative, if you don't think these young people, if you don't think that the staff, our executive staff, if you don't think the work that we've been doing the P learning that the movie, the purpose TV, the IP media, if you don't think is real, and if you don't think it's worth it, guess what? Give us back the envelope with no comment.
Thank you very much.
But if you think it has a value beyond what you ate, and beyond what you have heard, we ask you brothers and sisters to write a check.
Based upon Yes, write a check based upon your capability. Yes, this is inside your Gucci bags.
And brothers, open your envelopes and open your heart. Open your wallet and open your hearts. And why does the check purpose of life foundation
purpose of life foundation? Oh, poor Benjamin.
Is that a 50?
That's 100 right? Yeah. What's the 50
as a grant Yeah, we need Benjamin's in grants.
Because we cannot establish a global media
foundation. We can do that.
With what George Washington's
brothers and sisters, please, if you got some coins, we appreciate whatever you give or keep your coins and give them to your kids and buy some candy
Because we need to give according to what it calls for, if anybody has any doubts, keep your doubts and keep your money.
But if you believe that what we're doing here, we'll make an investment for the next generation. We need you to put something in these envelopes that respect that. We need you to do that now. Can I see the envelope again, please?
So I want to take just 30 seconds, because that's all it takes 30 seconds for me to reach inside. Now we don't have any money.
That's because it is money I got, you know who got it right. The Minister of the Interior.
You know who that is. But I don't mind.
I don't mind. So brothers and sisters, what we want you to do.
What we want you to do brothers and sisters, somebody will hear from you, brothers, please.
Please take a deep breath, to say Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. And put inside this envelope, whatever you believe that the future
deserves your children, your grandchildren.
Wherever your children and your grandchildren and the Islamic world in this city, whatever you believe that it deserves. That's what we want you to put inside this envelope. Now brothers and sisters, if you say to me share, I mean, where where's this money going?
Like that. We want to know where the money's going, but then join us and you know where it's going.
Brothers and sisters, we have prepared a very beautiful brochure.
Very beautiful brochure.
It cost us it cost us $3,500. To make 15,000 of these brochures,
we are now only have approximately 4000 of these brochures left, because we distribute them all over the world. So brothers and sisters, we will give you one of these on the way out that you can read that you can reflect that you can come in and you can understand the work that we are doing. The only thing is that in this brochure is purpose initiative, because purpose initiative just took birth when
a month ago.
And this program came out of that ad hoc project called purpose initiative. So by the census, let me see a show of hands of everybody who's has given an envelope already.
So since everybody has given
since everyone has given an envelope, I'd like to do one more thing.
There are five or 10 people in this room
who could very easily
assist us to establish the kind of office that we need in San Diego.
We don't need the office the size of this room.
But we do need an office that's probably going to cost us around $3,000 a month.
And we need to put inside that office. Other things that you know that an office needs to have, so that we have a staff.
So we have a budget.
Our budget is about $7,000 a month just for the purpose of life Foundation, not any other project. You don't have to be a rocket scientist scientist to know that $7,000 a month for 12 months is how much
as $84,000 a year.
So brothers and sisters, we don't want to ask you to help us raise that money for the year because the year is almost out.
But we need that office tomorrow.
And to finish up this year.
We need to raise $15,000 right now. for November in December. We will come back to this place inshallah in January and we will have that office and we will raise some more money.
Because the webcast right now is free. We decided to do five world webcasts until we get 100,000 viewers. Right now I think we have about 32,000 viewers. By the end of this year. I think we will have 100,000 dedicated viewers.
So I'd like to ask somebody here that owns business, somebody here that's an investor, somebody here that owns a house, somebody here that loves Islam that understands what we're talking about. We need 15 people that have $1,000 that will give to us or we need five people that will give us 3000 only one person
can see somebody
decision, anybody can give us 5000.
Anyone would like to give the purpose of like, five 5000, you can write the check, you can pay it in 30 days, you can pay it in 15 days, you can pay it tonight, whatever it is, anybody would like to get 5000
Nobody would like to get 5000 to earn all the rewards of the young people and all the work that we're going to be doing in this city. That's okay. I'm not angry. And I'm not disappointed. And I'm not surprised. Is Would anybody like to give 3000 3000 means that you'll give me 3000 is the same as given like $8 a day? Does anybody realize give 3000? Can I see a hand please? 2000 2001 2001 twice anyone would like to give 3000?
That's okay. I'm not.
I'm not surprised.
Let's bring it down to something that perhaps you feel a little bit more practical.
How many people here would like to make the sacrifice to give $1,000 a $1,000
Foundation purpose media group to support the work that we are doing
And I think the thing people forget about that one
is one does to an animal.
123300 Raise your hand.
One Two is fine.
Anybody else please raise your hand so I can see. I saw I saw one
else would like to give it out.
Three, Masha Allah, may Allah reward all of you, brothers and sisters, let's take it down to 500.
Who would like to give 500 this is like giving like $1 50 a day of California $1 35.
That's what it is. That's what you're giving.
That's what it equals to in a year. How many people like to give 501?
Cuz it's kind of light in the mind. We got one to 500.
Okay, so that's 123 1500 4000. Is that correct? Good. Now, let's make it so that like everybody can can like stand up and do it?
How many people here forget about whatever you gave? It's like water in the same God?
Who would like to give $100?
In addition to whatever you gave a handout
1-234-567-8910 1112 1314 14 Anyone else? No 15 100 101? One. We're not going twice a brick in agenda.
Anybody else? Fine. So that's 1400
plus 5000. That's what?
That's 6400 Is that correct?
We asked the last one God to bless everyone who gave we have a lot to accept from us.
So that 6400 we asked you please make that trade this evening. Because once you walk outside
your wife you go say Are you crazy?
Or your husband gonna tell you who gave you push to give me my money?
Oh, you will start thinking to yourself about the debt. You got your payment.
And it's gone. Gone.
So I'm suggesting to all of you that you made a pledge this evening. Make the payment this evening.
You can't make it this evening because you say that? I don't have a cheque.
But guess what?
We brought the bank to you.
So we got the machines over there like that.
So I know you got these plastic cards for Americans going back.
So you have no excuse.
You gotta find another excuse. So the ATM machine is right there.
to give you the receipt.
Okay, so brothers sisters, we want to wrap up our program, because we are really behind the time and we're going to have to answer for going over our time. And we really thank our guest.
Victoria, who is the event manager here, who has gone home because she starts working at eight o'clock in the morning, we want to thank, we want to thank her for facilitating this for her us and her staff here at the Jacobs center. And for brothers and sisters to know this, we have already booked this center for four events,
so that we know where we're going to be at. So in about another two weeks, you're going to see another set of flyers, that's gonna give us like, at least like a couple of months in advance. So this way, you know, we won't be trying to do something in two weeks, and then again in April, so in January, we'll do something in April, we'll do something in July, we're gonna do something right here in the same place, say insha Allah.
We also want to thank all the leaders of the Muslims and all the massages that allowed us to go there and promote this project, who also have sent people who also sent some tickets or bought some tickets. We want to thank the mothers and fathers and all the people in business who bought tickets, we want to thank those brothers, those two brothers, especially who came to me and bought 100 tickets hamdulillah they just anonymously just gave it and left.
Me Allah bless all of you. May Allah bless the sisters and their wives and their children. May Allah bless the brothers and their wives and their families. May Allah bless the elder people here, may Allah bless the the people who came out who represent the massages so that they can go back and say what we have done, we did not do. And we ask Allah to accept from us. And we think by the use of Barbara, who is the coordinator of the purpose initiative. Yes, it is his team. One thing brother Khalid,

it seems so logical and so right. That I feel
I can witness the fact that there is but one God.
I can witness the fact that he has one prophet
and my love for him is boundless.
has been a friend for Broderick for most 18 years. And I just want to let you know the importance of being a good Muslim, working Muslim.
Through his relationship, partner relationship, brother, Rick decided he wants to be like him, he wants to feel like him. And he had pictures with Goofy, you see him is just like a new prophet. The way he dressed he when he consumed Muslim before he went to the shadow. So my guess is that the way you
practice your deen by walking by talking by acting means a lot to people than you know, your coffee or your Java or anything. So I want to thank the brother for you know, trying his best. That's all you can do. No one can make a human being Muslim. Allah can make a Muslim.
He can only present Islam. That's what we all must do. So inshallah you can all do the same in your own locality. So the brother is ready. And I after my speech, I talked to him any quality said that Islam and I said, what are what are you waiting for? He said, Well, I'm ready. So I said, Yes, it can come unannounced, and he's ready to join.
So brother, Rick, they say
the words of Shahada are very easy, and it's only like a formula.
Our Prophet sauce taught us this formula. We just passing the formula on. So I'll say in Arabic, what you have already said as a formula you recite after me and these will be your witnesses. Okay, sir.

This

And lad ilaha illa Illa law illallah wa Devo walk there who
were sharika sharika lahu, la ku wash. Wha harsh Abu
alayhi wa sallam me? I mean,
brother, Rick, previously you were Christian like myself.
And so although we inherit
the mission of Jesus, peace be upon the face of Jesus. Peace be upon. There was something taught to us from that time until now, which we have to refute. And the process and told us those people who enter Islam from Christianity, they should say something else. So I want you to just to see if you agree, say it, if you don't agree, you don't have to. I agree. And I bear witness. I bear witness that he saw that he saw, who is Jesus, who is Jesus, the son of Mary, the son of Mary, that he is the spirit, that he is the spirit and a word and a word from Allah from Allah and his mother, and his mother is pure is pure Me, me tech via
now brothers and sisters, listen, check. Viola work was great.
But when I became a Muslim, when I see other people become Muslim to something else that I think you should do.
Don't be hugging and kissing and all that day and giving advice and all that no.
Even though he looks to me to be a very responsible working man, a very balanced man, Father, probably grandfather. We need to put together a gift for him.
So what I want the brothers and sisters to do, I want you to reach back into your pockets. I don't care if it's $1 $5 $10 a person, whatever it is, reach into your pockets and give a gift to him. He doesn't have to use if he wants to give it to his wife, do you want to give it to his grandchildren, if he wants to buy some books, or whatever he wants to do, it's a gift from us. This is what I do for non Muslims when they become Muslims all over the world. And I hope that you will accept this from us. So don't put that money in a box over here. Just one of the brothers here collected from the brothers and the sisters, collect it from the sisters and bring it up here and give it to one of
us before we go out. And we're going to hand it over to our brother Big Brother, Rick, listen. abdulghani abdulghani means the servant of the most wealthy is one of the names of God. Okay, so your name is Rick, it's come from Richard from that which is enriched, so it means abdulghani
abdulghani. So, Brother, listen, when you finish here, you should go home, take a bath, not because you're not clean, but as a ceremony.
And you should pray.
And the brothers will tell you, but when you pray, don't pray for them first.
Pray for me first.
Why? Because I'm jealous.
And selfish. We should ask each other for each other's due. Yes. And since he gave me the opportunity to pass this on. Make dua for me. My name is Khalid Jesse. You can remember that Abu Mohammed, Abu Mohammed and if they're jealous to pray for all three of us once Okay, brother,
If we did not accomplish anything this evening at all.
The prophet SAW Sam he said, somebody enters Islam to our hands hiral minute dunya mafia.
So we asked the last one and we ask Allah to guide brother Isaiah.
This his second sitting with us. We asked a lot to guide him and make it easy for him to be able to make this decision in this transition. We asked the last one to make it to make those who are his friends. Effective young semi in guiding him in Sharla. brothers sisters, unfortunately, we need to vacate this hall because we are at least 20 minutes behind time. So sisters if you will go this way. And brothers if you will kind of go that way. Those of you who have made commitments please stop at the table over here and make your commitment inshallah and pay those things.
