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

My brother just just

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

lost

00:00:18--> 00:00:24

these classes have at we are doing both on the topic of

00:00:26--> 00:00:36

applied Syrah as well as leaving Islam, the menu. The primary purpose is for implementing Islam in our own lives.

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

These are not intellectual lecture, these are not things for

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

you to simply get some more facts and figures. But they are meant for us to implement in our lives. That's the main role and goal of these. So as I was mentioning, the purpose is for us to implement in our lives.

00:01:02--> 00:01:06

Now, in the context of leaving Islam, we are following

00:01:08--> 00:01:16

the book called Living snap, which all of your work, so do read the book also. So you have an idea of

00:01:17--> 00:01:36

what we are going to be talking about. And then the book has got, at the end of each chapter, there are there is a whole section on action planning, where I encourage you to write down specifically what will you do as a result of whichever session you've attended?

00:01:37--> 00:01:48

What did you get from that session, and as a result of that, what do you plan to implement in your life, this is an important thing to do. And then to actually implement that.

00:01:55--> 00:01:56

Those of you out there Come

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

on set.

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

We have

00:02:23--> 00:02:28

this is this weekend is the Thanksgiving weekend, which is

00:02:29--> 00:02:30

long weekend and so on.

00:02:31--> 00:02:35

Everyone is gearing up to doing

00:02:36--> 00:02:39

whatever they do for Thanksgiving.

00:02:41--> 00:02:42

So I don't mess with

00:02:43--> 00:02:48

that. giving tax is the essence of Islam.

00:02:50--> 00:02:52

Which is the principle of Islam.

00:02:54--> 00:03:02

And Islam attacking Islam is not a particular day or a particular time of the year. It's something that we are supposed to do all the time.

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

Now, we might like to feel that therefore we do it all the time.

00:03:09--> 00:03:13

But that is something where I think it bears depression.

00:03:15--> 00:03:21

The problem with the thing that you are supposed to do all the time is that most of them get neglected.

00:03:22--> 00:03:31

That is the reason why people have celebrations and days and so on and so forth. Mother's Day, Father's Day, whatnot. Because at least on that one day you remember your honor.

00:03:32--> 00:03:34

So we will usually like to

00:03:35--> 00:03:40

you know counter to that and say over to see we serve our mothers every day.

00:03:41--> 00:03:46

But seriously, we have to ask this question. Look at our lives and see is this really true?

00:03:47--> 00:03:51

Do you really serve your mother? Or this is what you like to believe?

00:03:52--> 00:03:58

Our we asked the mother that she feels served every day. Or is it something that

00:03:59--> 00:04:20

you know when to you're supposed to serve every day and so therefore mother's Mother's Day you don't want to celebrate and then for Mother's Day also doesn't get celebrated Mother's Day, which I am not promoting Mother's Day, Mother's Day and science. Teachers. I've been teaching for 35 years 3536 years

00:04:23--> 00:04:27

the vast budget How many? Even on teachers day how many greetings do I get?

00:04:29--> 00:04:35

I just finished on September so I can safely say this because you will you will forget about it until a September so I'm saying this

00:04:37--> 00:04:49

seriously, thanks. Thanksgiving in Islam. Yes it is true Thanksgiving in Islam is not a holiday it is not a particular day. Thanksgiving, something we are supposed to do all the time, but do we do it?

00:04:50--> 00:04:52

Now what is the

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

what is the sign of this? How do I go about doing that?

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

There are two signs of Thanksgiving.

00:05:07--> 00:05:20

That two signs of if you are really and truly grateful to them. One is to consciously thank the one who gave us whatever he gave us. Consciousness specifically go and say thank you.

00:05:22--> 00:05:28

That's very much part of themselves. And I've mentioned this very clearly in his hobbies, where as soon as

00:05:29--> 00:05:35

that woman who invests, who is the one who has not had the people has not had.

00:05:39--> 00:05:42

So one part is that to say, Do you really think?

00:05:44--> 00:05:50

So for example, many of us we, you have somebody at home who was doing cooking.

00:05:54--> 00:05:59

And you got home every day? Well, a nice hot meal. Well, cooked food and sauce over

00:06:01--> 00:06:04

blue action, when was the last time you had that person?

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

Since just seriously asking this question, when was the last time that you tapped your wife, you thanked your woman in your house? Who does the cooking

00:06:16--> 00:06:17

in America?

00:06:21--> 00:06:28

So when was the last time that you tapped? The person who does your cooking, that cooking or eating every single day?

00:06:31--> 00:06:33

Seriously, I mean, then what is the meaning of Thanksgiving?

00:06:38--> 00:06:42

my contention to you don't even that one day.

00:06:46--> 00:06:50

When was the last time your wife or your mother or

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

your father?

00:06:54--> 00:07:03

Because without that bill, just think about it one day you come home? And that meal is not there? Will it make a difference? Do we feel that?

00:07:08--> 00:07:19

So one is to time. Second one, to show whether you're actually good for second thing is to look at how do I use the blessing that I have?

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

How do I use a risk?

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

taker, let me give you a couple of examples, things

00:07:30--> 00:07:36

to attend to, like I want this toy or he wants a smartphone or something

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

and you buy it for him.

00:07:41--> 00:07:44

Then next thing you know the smartphone is lying somewhere.

00:07:46--> 00:07:50

It fell down, it's cracked, it's crashed. What do you say to

00:07:53--> 00:08:16

those individuals, okay, I gave it to whatever you know, you'd be you'd be upset. You say what kind of thing is this, you you wanted this thing you want to suppose to, you know, look after it. So looking after something which you've got a blessing that you've got looking after it is part of being thankful, using it for the purpose for which it was given. And then to look after it, this is part of being thankful.

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

Boom, Shaka

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

Initially, I mentioned in

00:08:29--> 00:08:44

the right. And that's it then announced this, make them notice that whoever is grateful to me for my blessings, I will give him Baraka and I will increase those blessings for him.

00:08:46--> 00:08:51

And whoever is ungrateful, then let him be aware of my punishment, which is severe.

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

Now, you might say sometimes people say this.

00:08:59--> 00:09:06

When I, when I say, you know, did you thank your wife, you thank you all good. Reviews. And so they said, Oh, but you know, there's no

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

way I was I wouldn't say thank you.

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

So my question is,

00:09:14--> 00:09:20

LSA if you don't you thank me, I will increase the blessing. And if I if you Don't tag me, I will punish you. So I don't know

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

why that was in fact,

00:09:26--> 00:09:26

if your wife

00:09:27--> 00:09:28

doesn't know.

00:09:30--> 00:09:42

The issue is not about them. The issue is about yourself. If you are thankful, are you going to express your thankfulness or not? That is the question the question not whether the other person doesn't know. They may know they were not products. That's immaterial

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

that you should ask this question.

00:09:48--> 00:09:54

I was teaching a course in January, in India, and this was

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

the entire lot they were all Tamil province. Now I'm seeing them already.

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

Because they have a very strong culture.

00:10:04--> 00:10:21

And part of the downdraft brown culture is that every morning, the lady of the house with the mother or the wife, she gets up early before all the men, he has a bath, she does a Puja, then she comes into the kitchen. And she makes a filter of

00:10:23--> 00:10:29

freshly ground coffee beans. You know, they make this coffee filter, very, very fantastic.

00:10:31--> 00:11:12

by them, the men are going up and they drink this coffee. And they read the Hindu newspaper called the Hindu very, very typical money. So I was teaching this course in Germany, and towards the end of the two day course, towards the end of the first day, we talked, we talked about credit or gratitude, expression of gratitude. So I mentioned to the I said, This coffee, which you get everyday, do you appreciate it? Oh, of course, please. Those are coffees of the day is not, they cannot start. So I said, Did you thank your mother or sister or wife or whoever it is the lady of the house here in making coffee for you for the last 20 3040 years? Did you thank her for the score.

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

So they will that sense.

00:11:18--> 00:11:30

Then one guy was sitting right in front, and he was you know, middle aged. He started smiling and not giggling but sort of almost. So I said what's funny?

00:11:32--> 00:11:34

I'm thinking if I tag my wife, she will die.

00:11:38--> 00:11:41

So I said let her die happy with you know, what's, what's wrong.

00:11:46--> 00:12:00

So anyway, that finished mess money. One of the young guys he comes to me he came early, I usually come half an hour early. So I was sitting in the classroom. This guy come is a Sir, my mother said to tech.

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

So I said, Who's your mother? I don't know if your mother is your mother wants you want to thank me for what he said. Yesterday, after I went home from the class I went

00:12:13--> 00:12:16

for a coffee. My mother said Who told you to say this?

00:12:19--> 00:12:44

He said I tried to wing it I read you know, I really I suddenly realized I am your mother. I know what what you realize what you didn't realize somebody told you to say this video telling. So isn't it I have to say our teacher. He told us to go and thank him tomorrow morning when you go first time him from me that he reminded you to thank me for what happened.

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

So let us think about

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

what Allah has blessed us with

00:12:55--> 00:13:00

us this Thanksgiving, we can positively and productively and not just simply

00:13:02--> 00:13:03

think about

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

simply your values also get them together. And then them you're doing like an exercise a sheet of paper and say write down the top 10

00:13:20--> 00:13:28

want to come to proceedings impossible. So the second top 10 blessings in order of priority what is number one? What is number two?

00:13:31--> 00:13:37

So first then let them list into having listed down then you say number one,

00:13:39--> 00:13:55

the same question was asked if it is if it came from Allah did I specifically for it? If it came to somebody, did I tag that person specifically for it? First question to ask. And second question is How am I using that?

00:13:57--> 00:14:01

But am I showing my appreciation in the way I use it that risk?

00:14:04--> 00:14:09

Can you lose this your make this into your weekend assignment?

00:14:10--> 00:14:20

very dear friend of mine. My students from Malaysia are with us it was a possibility. He wants to have my students

00:14:25--> 00:14:30

with us in Central Asia. If Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed

00:14:31--> 00:14:38

that tomorrow you will only wake up with those things that you thanked me for today.

00:14:41--> 00:14:50

He said if Allah wrote this decree, that tomorrow you will wake up only with those things that you tapped me for today.

00:14:51--> 00:14:52

You said what we'll

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

see the see the merge. See how kind and merciful

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

Allah had said this Believe me there is not one single living human being on the face of the earth who would not have lost a majority of things.

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

Just as we are sitting here, just think about it.

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

Today in the course of the day now it's 10 past five past 8pm so from the time you woke up in the morning, till today, did you thank Allah subhanaw taala for your parents? Did you thank Allah subhanaw taala for your spouse's Did you thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for your children specifically I'm asking Did you say your Allah I am grateful to you for the sun you gave me whose name is this month as far as you do it if you didn't do this, don't fool yourself. Right? You do thank your thank Allah for the children he gave you. Did you thank God

00:15:51--> 00:16:09

for the money he gave us. Did he did we thank Allah for the fact that we got we got up in the morning Alhamdulillah without any pain and suffering we didn't get up and I was broken for now. We didn't get up and suddenly my neck doesn't work or something doesn't none of these things happen to us. Right

00:16:13--> 00:16:23

detanglers rather for the fact that we had a good breakfast hamdulillah we digested the vote. When we are awarded the trial and everything was good there. No problems No pain, no suffering.

00:16:24--> 00:16:43

If you think that is funny, go to the hospital here as them to show you patients who have UTI urinary tract infection there's there will be crying tears to go through the day. It's a vicious cycle. They have UTI urinary tract infection. The the to pass water is so painful they stop drinking water that is good.

00:16:48--> 00:16:56

For us we eat and we drink and we digest and everything is smooth and beautiful. Did we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for this.

00:16:59--> 00:17:31

And not only this random list and make detangler smarter for the fact that you will be driving around in this country at 60 miles an hour. 70 miles an hour. You did not get a date you didn't get a crash your car you get total you did get total. None of that happened. safely. You went from point A to point B back to Mike, did we thank our panel specifically for this. If Allah had decreed whatever you don't ask me for a one on one you wake up you did not thank me for this. That thing is God you didn't thank you for that. That thing is not what will happen to us.

00:17:37--> 00:17:50

This is what one of my students asked me I always thank Allah for my students. And words are beautiful to me. They teach me so many things. Another one, you younger is now

00:17:53--> 00:17:55

in our victim dentists in not in Long Island.

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

And doggy one almost 22 years ago.

00:18:02--> 00:18:03

I was in

00:18:04--> 00:18:05

New York.

00:18:08--> 00:18:11

So we were in this mansion in New York.

00:18:12--> 00:18:20

And I had to do the ban and the evening. So after that I was sitting this young guy that ends his Bible, maybe

00:18:21--> 00:18:25

he would be 15 years old, or 17 or something.

00:18:27--> 00:18:31

So he told me he said your uncle I tan tala for my knuckles.

00:18:32--> 00:18:33

Right.

00:18:34--> 00:18:41

So when he said I attacked a lot when I do that, at first, my instant, sort of thought in my mind was he is trying to be funny.

00:18:43--> 00:18:54

Right? He's trying to correct I didn't say anything, I didn't express anything, any irritation, but my immediate thought was that he's trying to be funny, then he told me, you know how many times I do this without any pain.

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

Now this isn't, you know,

00:19:02--> 00:19:07

where that is knuckle business where it really hit me was

00:19:08--> 00:19:12

that same time when I used to live here in from 1997 to 1999.

00:19:14--> 00:19:19

I went to the post office, which is in Loughborough.

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

Right.

00:19:22--> 00:19:27

So under industrial drive from from the storage place, you take a left.

00:19:30--> 00:19:39

So as I got out of the car, I had some things to bear. I saw a very poor lady. She drove up, she got out of her car with great difficulty.

00:19:40--> 00:19:56

And she was boarding I mean, I have to say a warning because it was a good way to say she was holding a package in her hand. But her hand was something like this, you know, this way, and the baggage is hanging from the hat. So she can't hold she cannot wear the fingers.

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

I mean, if you're going to be using a walker

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

She started coming into the post office. So I went to her, I said, Ma'am, can I help you feel very happy. I took this, I started jogging with her. She said, I'm sending some greeting cards. It was around a little bit later in

00:20:16--> 00:20:31

December. So she said, I'm sending some reading cards to my children who are in different places in the country, focus was around it, I realized that she could not bend up, she had such an advanced state of I have arthritis, that she could not even bend her finger. That's what I remember about

00:20:34--> 00:20:35

entanglement.

00:20:42--> 00:20:48

Thanksgiving is to means to be consciously grateful, thankful.

00:20:49--> 00:21:02

And to thank Allah and the second thing I said is, how am I using it? So Alhamdulillah Allah gave me a hand which work, no problem my fingers burned is that now what am I using these hands for?

00:21:03--> 00:21:06

And thank you Al Hamdulillah. Then these hands for

00:21:08--> 00:21:16

these fingers which work What are they be used for? Are they being used to solve that and watch stuff which I should probably watch?

00:21:17--> 00:21:18

out for the fingers?

00:21:21--> 00:21:26

Or are these fingers use for something which is Allah which Allah subhanaw taala permitted me to do? Which one?

00:21:27--> 00:21:29

Allah, Allah gave me

00:21:30--> 00:21:31

I

00:21:33--> 00:21:37

until I was I think 40 Plus I had no glasses.

00:21:40--> 00:21:45

Even now I have glasses with glasses, I can see perfectly but without glasses, I have difficulty but other than

00:21:47--> 00:21:47

that, very grateful.

00:21:52--> 00:21:53

But what do I see?

00:21:56--> 00:22:02

That is the question. So I tagged Allah subhanaw taala for my eyes, but then my eyes are being used for what

00:22:03--> 00:22:04

they are being useful.

00:22:11--> 00:22:15

What did Allah give us and being thankful for it, and

00:22:16--> 00:22:19

using it for what pleases lots of animals and

00:22:20--> 00:22:31

this is the essence of Thanksgiving. So it is not it is not a day or a weekend, it is all my life. Whatever blessings Allah Subhana Allah gave me

00:22:33--> 00:22:39

as I told you, I just made a random list. Each one of us will have things which are common to all of us like hell.

00:22:40--> 00:22:46

But we will also have blessings which are peculiar to us specific to us

00:22:49--> 00:22:50

do a tank

00:22:53--> 00:22:57

as I mentioned, they in general, the one

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

in leadership,

00:23:02--> 00:23:05

a person must understand that my punishment is severe.

00:23:11--> 00:23:15

When you have his blessing, or in many places, and there are

00:23:16--> 00:23:17

two places

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

we're announcing that

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

soon to them that if the oceans were ink,

00:23:29--> 00:23:30

if the oceans

00:23:33--> 00:23:57

and if you wanted to ride the tanks and prayers and blessings of Allah subhanho that you would exhaust those portions. And if even they were replenished, which means that several more emotions were produced, they will also be exhausted. And yet the prayers of Allah Allah will not be

00:24:02--> 00:24:07

there is something that bears thinking about it. asked me to say that this is

00:24:09--> 00:24:13

this is what he has told us. You know, when this particular I

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

where does that really hit me was last year I was in Mozambique.

00:24:25--> 00:24:27

And we are gone deep sea fishing.

00:24:29--> 00:24:34

So I was in a board about almost 150 miles in the ocean.

00:24:35--> 00:24:38

After that, I think all you can see is the sea

00:24:39--> 00:24:51

and very it was almost been day we were fishing for Marlin and iron. They had painted the hook with a Dorado Dorado is official this week.

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

And a live Dorado new gadget is it shines is absolutely almost flawless. Exactly.

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

look like a light like a light to with multiple colors. And when it dies it becomes great. No color completely good. So this is live Dorado dope with that line was way out sitting in the fighting chair with the rod in my head

00:25:18--> 00:25:27

and saw Marlin got to the sort of the violet state of the dorsal fin. And suddenly my language stuck.

00:25:29--> 00:25:43

So I realized what happened on the part of the pilot is Britta Dorado from the head back spoke the hook and the head is like the rest of the fuses got right and then the Milan came up in the in the water and literally done for the day like this.

00:25:44--> 00:25:50

And when they landed on this, then it struck me that the color of the ocean

00:25:52--> 00:26:02

and that is the reason a story, the color notion in my my childhood, we had refused to use ink pens.

00:26:04--> 00:26:31

So, there was an ink which is which used to be one pink, q i n k, I don't get that water. You have the pink we used to get in India, which now that blue quick was the color of us. And I thought to myself, this is the last round. If this is you, right, this will be finished and you can get some more and to be finished but the praise

00:26:32--> 00:26:33

and glory Have

00:26:37--> 00:26:41

you read the black Marlin is the fastest

00:26:42--> 00:26:46

creature to see. The black Marlin does 80 miles an hour

00:26:47--> 00:26:48

to water

00:26:50--> 00:27:01

during doing that in the air on land is not that difficult because in the register, the air must have been in water 80 miles an hour in terms of fish. So what kind of power is there?

00:27:04--> 00:27:04

This is

00:27:06--> 00:27:09

this isn't a whole lot of others. This is what others have

00:27:11--> 00:27:22

told us and so I thought let me talk to you about the issue of thankfulness because that's where we're sitting here today. And that is why told us

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

to

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

is intake, which I

00:27:31--> 00:27:44

said as soon as Rosana grabbed me by the shoulder, and he's been in the world like a stranger or traveler and count yourself among the inhabitants of the grave.

00:27:47--> 00:27:55

So who is a stranger or a traveler what is the nature of a traveler or the nature of a stranger is

00:27:56--> 00:27:59

the primary interest of the traveler is well

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

in the destination.

00:28:02--> 00:28:07

Not not passing through his passing through that part of him You have to go through this place that was

00:28:08--> 00:28:10

so displays whether it is good or not good.

00:28:15--> 00:28:19

But I wouldn't deserted the destination. And that destination is what is the

00:28:20--> 00:28:52

count yourself among the inhabitants of the phone. What will happen to me when I go to the grave. And then even our alarm with the with the Buddha says he says to me when you wake up in the morning, do not concern yourself with the evening when you read the evening do not concern yourself with the money. Now what does it mean? That doesn't mean don't plan Don't worry no. It means don't worry and don't get concerned and don't lose your sleep and don't get hassled and don't get stressed out about what is going to happen to

00:28:53--> 00:29:00

the real worry about is the tomorrow that will come and the tomorrow that will be there forever.

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

Not this tomorrow not the tomorrow as for the date.

00:29:06--> 00:29:09

But the tomorrow as in terms of buy life well.

00:29:11--> 00:29:16

Tomorrow ask for the day we are not sure I do not know whether I will wake up tomorrow morning or not.

00:29:19--> 00:29:23

But what I do know is that one day I will go and meet Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:29:24--> 00:29:31

Now am I prepared for that? So that's what he means. He says when you wake up grumpy, worried about the evening and if you are in

00:29:32--> 00:29:38

the morning be concerned about your last day, the day when you will meet or

00:29:39--> 00:29:41

that day will happen and that is for

00:29:43--> 00:29:59

and there is no take from your health before your illness and take from your life before your death or indeed or slave of Allah. You do not know what your description will be tomorrow.

00:30:02--> 00:30:03

Just think about this.

00:30:05--> 00:30:09

When we are born not only before we are born, but even when you are born.

00:30:10--> 00:30:16

There is a time period two, three days, four days when you do not even have a name.

00:30:18--> 00:30:21

Yes, people will say Oh, Roseanne had a son.

00:30:23--> 00:30:35

Yesterday, my my brother had a son yesterday, my sister and her son yesterday, my wife and her daughter, whatever you would say, daughter or whatnot, I mean, you know, we are not yet given the name. So there is no name.

00:30:39--> 00:30:40

And then when you die,

00:30:43--> 00:30:44

what will happen

00:30:45--> 00:30:51

if I die in this place, and advise the Salafi janazah is done in this position?

00:30:53--> 00:30:54

When my grandmother is lying there,

00:30:55--> 00:31:00

if you need to move from here to there, what do you say when you say move, by Move,

00:31:01--> 00:31:04

move the body, when you say, move, move.

00:31:08--> 00:31:11

So, when I was born, I had known him when I'm dead.

00:31:14--> 00:31:25

Between this period when before when I bought after some days, and before I die before some days, that period, I want to live as if I want this word. In the 11

00:31:31--> 00:31:35

years, Dr. Paul J. Mora, Allison has

00:31:36--> 00:31:40

forgotten that there was a time when they were not even something mentioned.

00:31:44--> 00:31:48

And that is what is he saying? Take from your health

00:31:49--> 00:31:51

before your illness?

00:31:53--> 00:31:58

How many times do we know and we know off of you know people who

00:32:01--> 00:32:10

at the time of dying, when they are sick? Now suddenly, why should I read that this I wanted to create? What is the mood when Allah has given you

00:32:12--> 00:32:13

today is what we have.

00:32:15--> 00:32:21

How unfortunate that you want to leave out today and think about tomorrow, which may never come

00:32:25--> 00:32:46

from your health, for your illness, data from your life before your death because they have a line you do not know what your description will be tomorrow, will you have it tomorrow? Will you have life tomorrow? Will you be dead tomorrow? What will happen tomorrow, you do not know that. So what you do know take advantage of that most often asked and was rather

00:32:48--> 00:33:31

displeased. As you're coming here, I asked to enable you and me all of us to take lessons from these times with these things that we are trying to do and apply them in our lives. As I mentioned at the beginning, as I keep mentioning all the time, the purpose of these classes is not simply to disseminate some information. It is for us to remind ourselves to act on that. And to take this now go home, sit with your friends, sit with your family, pass on that message and get people to act on it because remember, if you do something yourself, you get a reward. But if you get that same thing to be done by somebody else, then you get the reward for that as well as the other person's would do

00:33:31--> 00:33:35

it as well. So this is an area for us.
