I was having

00:00:15--> 00:00:17

an online conversation with a friend of mine,

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

and he said that divisions in Islam are

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

suicidal.

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

So I said to him, I agree with

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

you,

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

And that is why

00:00:31--> 00:00:34

that is a choice because suicide is a

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

choice.

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

Right? Suicide doesn't happen. Suicide is done.

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

Suicide is a choice. So if you're saying

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

the divisions are suicidal, it means that this

00:00:42--> 00:00:43

is a choice we are making.

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

Why are you making choice?

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

So the point I want to make for

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

you and myself is,

00:00:51--> 00:00:53

I want you to think about this a

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

little bit conceptual, but I'm sure you can

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

understand that. Think about these 3,

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

3 groups or 3

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

spaces.

00:01:03--> 00:01:04

This is called the past.

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

This is called present,

00:01:06--> 00:01:07

and this is called the future.

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

Now everyone has this

00:01:11--> 00:01:11

irrespective

00:01:12--> 00:01:15

of where you are, irrespective of

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

your nationality, race, religion, whatnot,

00:01:18--> 00:01:21

irrespective of your time. The people in

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

the year 10/24,

00:01:24--> 00:01:27

1000 years before today, had the same, they

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

had a past, they had a present, and

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

they had a future.

00:01:30--> 00:01:32

And the people today in 2024

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

have the same thing which is the past,

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

the present and the future.

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

Now what is our past?

00:01:40--> 00:01:41

Our past

00:01:42--> 00:01:43

is the future

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

of the people

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

in, say, for example, 10/24.

00:01:47--> 00:01:50

Not only 1000 years, but whatever. Right? So

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

their future is our past.

00:01:55--> 00:01:58

What affected their future? What created their future?

00:01:58--> 00:02:00

What they did in their present.

00:02:01--> 00:02:03

What they did in their present

00:02:04--> 00:02:04

created something

00:02:05--> 00:02:07

which became our past.

00:02:08--> 00:02:10

So now our past, whatever it is, at

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

an individual level,

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

your parents, my parents,

00:02:14--> 00:02:14

siblings,

00:02:15--> 00:02:17

where I was born, how I grew up,

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

whatnot, whatnot,

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

at a

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

larger level,

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

the nation, the state, the community,

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

the whole Muslim,

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

whatnot. Right? So we have a past.

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

So in this past, we have kings and

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

we have,

00:02:33--> 00:02:35

you know, queens and we have,

00:02:35--> 00:02:38

ordinary people and we have good people and

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

we have nasty people, everybody.

00:02:41--> 00:02:41

Dispassed.

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

Our present is right here.

00:02:45--> 00:02:48

Absolute immediate presence is we sitting in this

00:02:48--> 00:02:50

meditation room in Springfield College

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

on the today's what? 27th

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

of April? 28. 28th April,

00:02:56--> 00:02:59

2024. This is our our March. 28th March,

00:02:59--> 00:03:00

a 2024.

00:03:02--> 00:03:04

Right now, this is

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

our present.

00:03:05--> 00:03:08

The past is starting from 5 minutes before.

00:03:09--> 00:03:09

Right?

00:03:10--> 00:03:10

So

00:03:11--> 00:03:13

going going all the way to where we

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

were born and then, of course, beyond that,

00:03:15--> 00:03:15

history.

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

Now how do you deal with this?

00:03:21--> 00:03:22

The way to deal with that

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

is to treat

00:03:25--> 00:03:28

our past as a story to learn from.

00:03:29--> 00:03:30

That's it.

00:03:31--> 00:03:33

There is no other relevance of the past.

00:03:33--> 00:03:34

Right?

00:03:34--> 00:03:37

If you allow the past to bleed into

00:03:37--> 00:03:39

the future into the present,

00:03:39--> 00:03:42

then the past will color our present

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

and make

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

us act in ways which are not necessarily

00:03:46--> 00:03:48

productive always.

00:03:48--> 00:03:49

So the past

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

show suppose somebody say, okay, then in that

00:03:52--> 00:03:55

case, just forget the past. Ignore the past.

00:03:55--> 00:03:57

No. No. Do not forget the past. Do

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

not ignore the past because the past is

00:03:59--> 00:04:02

a very big wealth. It's a big database

00:04:02--> 00:04:03

of knowledge

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

for us to learn from.

00:04:06--> 00:04:07

I don't have to fall into the same

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

hole

00:04:08--> 00:04:11

as somebody else if I know the the

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

hole they fell into and why.

00:04:14--> 00:04:15

Right? So then I don't know. This is

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

not the right thing to do. This is

00:04:17--> 00:04:19

what happened in history. This person had the

00:04:19--> 00:04:21

same kind of dilemma that I have today

00:04:21--> 00:04:22

and they did this and this is what

00:04:22--> 00:04:25

happened to them, bad things. So why would

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

I do the same thing? But if I

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

did not have that memory,

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

if it was

00:04:30--> 00:04:32

quite clean, then I would have to go

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

through the same pain. There's no need to

00:04:34--> 00:04:36

go through that pain if you read history.

00:04:36--> 00:04:38

That's why history is important. So we treat

00:04:38--> 00:04:40

history as a

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

history lesson, as a as a story to

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

learn from.

00:04:44--> 00:04:46

Then what do you do? Then what we

00:04:46--> 00:04:47

do is

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

in our present,

00:04:50--> 00:04:51

we look at our challenges

00:04:52--> 00:04:54

and we try to do the best for

00:04:54--> 00:04:56

ourselves in today's world,

00:04:56--> 00:04:58

taking some lessons from history.

00:04:59--> 00:05:01

Now not everything from history can be applied

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

and the idea of learning from history is

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

not to do the same thing again,

00:05:06--> 00:05:08

but definitely to learn from that and to

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

apply it in our context today.

00:05:12--> 00:05:15

So it's not the exact data point, but

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

it is what is the lesson from that

00:05:17--> 00:05:17

data?

00:05:18--> 00:05:19

The conceptualization

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

of that data.

00:05:21--> 00:05:24

So take for example, one of the most

00:05:24--> 00:05:24

famous,

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

now before I go to this. So now

00:05:27--> 00:05:28

what we do

00:05:28--> 00:05:29

becomes our future

00:05:30--> 00:05:33

because our action today produces some result.

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

That becomes our future. So the important thing

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

to understand is

00:05:38--> 00:05:41

that our future is entirely in our hands.

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

Allah gave us the power to write our

00:05:44--> 00:05:45

own destiny

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

in this world as well as the next.

00:05:48--> 00:05:51

Whether my life is going to be happy

00:05:51--> 00:05:52

and productive and beautiful,

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

full of wonderful friends and relatives and full

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

of beautiful relationships,

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

whether I'm going to be influential,

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

I'm going to be beloved of people,

00:06:02--> 00:06:04

and so on and so on. All of

00:06:04--> 00:06:05

that

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

is in my hands.

00:06:07--> 00:06:08

Nobody else.

00:06:09--> 00:06:10

Everyone of that.

00:06:11--> 00:06:13

All the opposite of that is also in

00:06:13--> 00:06:15

my hands. I can choose to become the

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

most hated and and, you know, person in

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

the world, or I can choose to become

00:06:19--> 00:06:22

the most beloved person in the world. Choose

00:06:22--> 00:06:22

to.

00:06:23--> 00:06:23

Whether

00:06:24--> 00:06:27

I accept this or whether I am conscious

00:06:27--> 00:06:29

of this choice or not, it is my

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

choice.

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

So whatever I'm doing or choosing not to

00:06:33--> 00:06:35

do is affecting me

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

in the future, and the future is right

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

now. Like, out of this door is future.

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

Right? So it's very important to understand that.

00:06:43--> 00:06:45

Now take for example. So how do you

00:06:45--> 00:06:45

conceptualize?

00:06:46--> 00:06:49

I want to give you another format. One

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

is what we call a concrete experience.

00:06:52--> 00:06:53

Right now, we are sitting here in this

00:06:53--> 00:06:54

meditation room

00:06:55--> 00:06:57

talking about something which is

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

potentially

00:06:58--> 00:06:59

useful.

00:06:59--> 00:07:01

So concrete experience.

00:07:01--> 00:07:03

From concrete experience,

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

we go to

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

what we call,

00:07:08--> 00:07:09

reflective,

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

introspection.

00:07:13--> 00:07:16

Right? So you you you think about the

00:07:16--> 00:07:18

experience. You say I was here. This is

00:07:18--> 00:07:19

what I was doing. This is what we

00:07:19--> 00:07:20

were thinking.

00:07:20--> 00:07:21

And,

00:07:22--> 00:07:23

the reflective introspection

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

or reflective observation.

00:07:25--> 00:07:27

So in your mind, you run that picture.

00:07:28--> 00:07:28

I

00:07:29--> 00:07:31

had a meeting with this person.

00:07:31--> 00:07:34

That meeting went well, didn't go well, whatnot.

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

He said this. I said this. Now after

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

the meeting,

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

reflective observation,

00:07:38--> 00:07:40

reflective introspection, you say, well,

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

what could I have done differently?

00:07:44--> 00:07:46

How could I have approached it in a

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

better way?

00:07:47--> 00:07:48

Right?

00:07:48--> 00:07:51

Maybe I got angry and maybe I expressed

00:07:51--> 00:07:51

my anger.

00:07:52--> 00:07:54

Maybe it was all for the good, meaning

00:07:54--> 00:07:56

that the anger was justified and so on

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

and so forth. But

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

was there a better way of dealing with

00:08:00--> 00:08:01

that situation?

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

I yelled at people, should I have yelled?

00:08:06--> 00:08:07

Was there another way?

00:08:07--> 00:08:09

Even though I might say, well, you know,

00:08:09--> 00:08:10

I yelled for a good reason,

00:08:11--> 00:08:12

it was a justifiable

00:08:13--> 00:08:14

yelling, but

00:08:14--> 00:08:16

was there another way of dealing with that

00:08:17--> 00:08:18

without the yelling?

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

Could I still have conveyed the same message

00:08:21--> 00:08:25

equally passionately, equally seriously, but without the yelling?

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

Is it possible? Of course, it's possible. I

00:08:27--> 00:08:28

didn't think about I didn't think about that

00:08:28--> 00:08:29

at that time, but

00:08:30--> 00:08:32

now what was the consequence of the yelling?

00:08:33--> 00:08:35

Next day, I have to go and apologize.

00:08:36--> 00:08:38

Naturally, because I mean, some people get hurt

00:08:38--> 00:08:40

so, you know, it's it's my responsibility. If

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

I did the yelling, then be prepared.

00:08:42--> 00:08:43

You also have to say sorry.

00:08:44--> 00:08:46

Now no matter how painful that sorry might

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

be, it is painful,

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

but it has to be done.

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

So lesson learned,

00:08:53--> 00:08:55

why did you put yourself in that situation

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

where you had to now humiliate yourself and

00:08:57--> 00:08:57

and and

00:08:58--> 00:08:59

because you

00:09:00--> 00:09:02

yelled. So next time before you yell,

00:09:03--> 00:09:05

think about what are the consequences. This yelling

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

is going to produce that, I don't want

00:09:07--> 00:09:08

to think, so don't yell.

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

Then there's no need. Right? So this is

00:09:10--> 00:09:13

the way we learn from our own life

00:09:13--> 00:09:13

experiences.

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

So we call this conceptual

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

concrete experience,

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

then abstract

00:09:20--> 00:09:23

observation or abstract reflection, reflective observation.

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

3rd one is conceptualization,

00:09:27--> 00:09:27

And

00:09:28--> 00:09:30

that's what I just said. What's the concept

00:09:30--> 00:09:31

out of this?

00:09:32--> 00:09:34

Find a way of saying what you need

00:09:34--> 00:09:37

to say, especially if it is critical, especially

00:09:37--> 00:09:39

if it is if you are angry about

00:09:39--> 00:09:40

something. Do it in a way where you

00:09:40--> 00:09:42

don't put yourself in a spot where you

00:09:42--> 00:09:43

have to go and apologize.

00:09:44--> 00:09:46

Because having to go and apologize is not

00:09:46--> 00:09:47

nice.

00:09:47--> 00:09:49

It's a painful thing. So don't get into

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

that situation in the first place.

00:09:52--> 00:09:53

Yet, but at the same time,

00:09:54--> 00:09:56

should you just keep quiet and let things

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

roll and let things happen, red or wrong

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

thing? No. No. No. No. Of course not.

00:09:59--> 00:10:01

Of course not. You should not let wrong

00:10:01--> 00:10:04

things happen. Wrong things must be stopped.

00:10:07--> 00:10:09

If correction has to be made and if

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

you are, especially if you are an authority,

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

you have to correct.

00:10:12--> 00:10:14

But there are different ways of correcting.

00:10:15--> 00:10:19

So conceptualization is correct people in a way

00:10:19--> 00:10:20

which is

00:10:20--> 00:10:23

with compassion, which is respectful,

00:10:24--> 00:10:25

which does not put you in a spot

00:10:25--> 00:10:27

where tomorrow you got to go back and

00:10:27--> 00:10:28

apologize to the people.

00:10:30--> 00:10:32

And then we come to the 4th stage,

00:10:32--> 00:10:34

which is called active experimentation, which is try

00:10:34--> 00:10:35

it next time.

00:10:36--> 00:10:38

This cycle, which we call this we call

00:10:38--> 00:10:41

this a cycle of adult learning. So

00:10:42--> 00:10:44

this present is the most important time in

00:10:44--> 00:10:45

our life because

00:10:47--> 00:10:49

whatever we do here, whether we like it

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

or not, is going to affect our future.

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

And the future is our destiny, whether it's

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

in this world and, of course, in the

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

in the hereafter, in the akhara. Whatever I

00:10:57--> 00:11:00

do here, it's getting recorded in the hereafter,

00:11:00--> 00:11:02

so therefore I will I will be rewarded

00:11:02--> 00:11:03

for it or not.

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

Now

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

what do you do, therefore, if you inherit

00:11:07--> 00:11:09

a situation which

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

is negative from the past?

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

Right? I'll be be as I said, we'll

00:11:12--> 00:11:14

be under the Shia Sunni kind of thing.

00:11:14--> 00:11:15

So now if you

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

if

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

you get landed with that so supposing now

00:11:18--> 00:11:20

you are working in a situation where you

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

have,

00:11:21--> 00:11:23

you are a Sunni and you have Shia,

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

colleagues

00:11:26--> 00:11:29

and bosses and whoever whoever. Right? Or the

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

other way around you, and the other people

00:11:30--> 00:11:31

are Sunni.

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

What do you do? Can you work with

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

them?

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

Of course. Why not?

00:11:36--> 00:11:38

Can you work with crystals? Yes. Can you

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

work with Jews? Yes.

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

Do you believe the same as their no.

00:11:41--> 00:11:43

We don't believe the same. We believe different.

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

So why can't you work with them?

00:11:46--> 00:11:47

Because we say

00:11:48--> 00:11:48

belief

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

is in that space. Let them believe whatever

00:11:51--> 00:11:53

they want. Our workspace,

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

the belief doesn't come into that,

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

or

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

the parts of the belief which come into

00:11:59--> 00:12:00

it are common.

00:12:01--> 00:12:03

For example, don't lie, don't cheat, whatnot, whatnot.

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

Why? We don't do that.

00:12:06--> 00:12:06

But

00:12:07--> 00:12:09

in the way they pray,

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

they do it differently.

00:12:11--> 00:12:14

Some of their beliefs, the aqayd, are different.

00:12:14--> 00:12:15

We don't believe in the same thing.

00:12:18--> 00:12:19

The way I remind myself is that is

00:12:19--> 00:12:21

true for anybody else. That's true for the

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

Christians. Do we believe that Jesus do we

00:12:23--> 00:12:25

believe that Jesus is son of God? No.

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

Allah is Allah.

00:12:27--> 00:12:29

There's no one worthy of worship except Allah.

00:12:30--> 00:12:33

Who is Jesus? A prophet of Allah. What

00:12:33--> 00:12:34

is our

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

relationship or connection or attitude towards Jesus?

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

Of the greatest respect, of greatest love,

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

we revere him.

00:12:44--> 00:12:45

Right?

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

As a prophet, we believe in him. As

00:12:47--> 00:12:48

a prophet,

00:12:48--> 00:12:50

we believe that he was divinely inspired. We

00:12:50--> 00:12:52

believe that he had no father. His

00:12:52--> 00:12:55

was his mother immaculate conception.

00:12:55--> 00:12:56

Allah

00:12:56--> 00:12:59

produced Jesus as a sign like he produced

00:12:59--> 00:13:02

Adam alayhi salaam Adam also as a sign.

00:13:02--> 00:13:04

Jesus had no father. Adam, alayhis salam, had

00:13:04--> 00:13:05

no father or mother.

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

Jesus was born as a baby. Adam, alayhis

00:13:09--> 00:13:11

salam, was born within quotes as a full

00:13:11--> 00:13:12

grown man.

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

That is why people get confused.

00:13:15--> 00:13:16

Adam was created

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

in his image and they say Adam was

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

created in the image of God. No. Adam

00:13:20--> 00:13:22

was created in his own image.

00:13:22--> 00:13:25

He was created in the image of man.

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

He was the prototype. He was the the

00:13:27--> 00:13:28

model

00:13:28--> 00:13:30

based on which the human race

00:13:30--> 00:13:31

was going

00:13:31--> 00:13:33

to be propagated, and Allah

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

created that prototype,

00:13:35--> 00:13:36

called Adam. Adam

00:13:37--> 00:13:39

was never a toddler. He was never a

00:13:39--> 00:13:40

2 year old. Right? He was never a

00:13:40--> 00:13:42

teenager with all kinds of,

00:13:42--> 00:13:43

problems.

00:13:46--> 00:13:48

He was a full grown, mature man the

00:13:48--> 00:13:49

moment you want his eyes.

00:13:50--> 00:13:53

Now why does Allah do that? To show

00:13:53--> 00:13:55

his own power, to show his.

00:13:56--> 00:13:57

So we worship him as

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

you are the creator.

00:14:01--> 00:14:03

So the present that we have is the

00:14:03--> 00:14:06

most important part of our lives. So this

00:14:06--> 00:14:07

is very important to understand. That's the reason

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

why we must live

00:14:09--> 00:14:11

consciously. We must live

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

with awareness,

00:14:13--> 00:14:15

Not just go through day or morning night,

00:14:15--> 00:14:17

morning night, morning night, so many days pass.

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

No.

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

That is why the prophet Muhammad, peace be

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

upon him, he said,

00:14:22--> 00:14:25

for a Muslim, no 2 days should be

00:14:25--> 00:14:25

equal.

00:14:27--> 00:14:29

No 2 days should be equal. He said,

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

every day must be an improvement on the

00:14:31--> 00:14:32

previous day.

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

And that is why the du'a of this,

00:14:34--> 00:14:36

the Bedouin made this wonderful du'a,

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

where he praised Allah

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

in very beautiful ways and then he said,

00:14:41--> 00:14:42

O Allah,

00:14:42--> 00:14:44

make the last part of my life the

00:14:44--> 00:14:45

best.

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

Make

00:14:47--> 00:14:50

my last deed the best deed

00:14:51--> 00:14:54

and make my last day the best day

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

the day that I meet you.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

Such a beautiful prayer, right? He said, make

00:14:59--> 00:15:01

the last part of my life the best.

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

Meaning what? Meaning my life must be on

00:15:03--> 00:15:04

a constantly improving

00:15:05--> 00:15:07

path so that the last part of my

00:15:07--> 00:15:08

life is the best.

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

Make my last deed the best. Meaning what?

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

Meaning,

00:15:13--> 00:15:14

every deed of mine should be better than

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

the previous one

00:15:16--> 00:15:18

until I come to the last one which

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

is the best.

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

And make my last day the best day

00:15:21--> 00:15:24

of my life when I meet you. And

00:15:24--> 00:15:25

I make this dua for all of us,

00:15:25--> 00:15:28

InshaAllah. May Allah make the last day of

00:15:28--> 00:15:29

our life the best day when we meet

00:15:29--> 00:15:32

him, and may our lives always be on

00:15:32--> 00:15:34

a path of constant improvement,

00:15:35--> 00:15:37

so that we become better and better people

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

as we as we develop.

00:15:40--> 00:15:42

And the key thing there is to live

00:15:42--> 00:15:43

with awareness.

00:15:44--> 00:15:45

Not not,

00:15:45--> 00:15:47

routine random living.

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

Routine random living is is animal living. Animals

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

live like that. All mammals live like that.

00:15:52--> 00:15:53

Right? You get up in the morning, you

00:15:53--> 00:15:54

go eat some food, go go back to

00:15:54--> 00:15:57

sleep, whatnot, whatnot. No. We are we are

00:15:57--> 00:15:58

mammals. Yes. But we are not mammals in

00:15:58--> 00:16:00

the sense of we are not cows and

00:16:00--> 00:16:02

buffalos or something. We are human beings. Allah

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

has given us intelligence,

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

Right?

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

Right?
