spillover from the line of blood I mean,

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

of course solid to slim on so you know imam in our Habibi none of it possible humbly, the loved one of Saudi Arabia in a woman named Eli Whitney Subhan Allah, Allah Allah Allah Allah.

00:00:26--> 00:01:06

Hakim Assad reverse silly a reminder of the terminally Sania commonly I praise Allah Almighty and I said prayers and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not the family like just companions and almost all of them right guidance until the day of judgment I mean, glory be to you Allah no knowledge, we accept that what you have taught us Indeed you are the ongoing the all wise, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make this gathering sincere for his sake, and to increase us in knowledge and implementation in sha Allah said salaam wa Rahmatullah the brothers and sisters, I welcome you to this workshop on the important question. Is there light at the end of the tunnel? And

00:01:06--> 00:01:12

I leave the answer to your good sense. Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? Yes or no?

00:01:14--> 00:01:16

Always. So we can go home?

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

For the workshop, right?

00:01:21--> 00:01:25

How do we get to that light? Alright, or the region?

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

What if there isn't?

00:01:28--> 00:01:34

Some lights? Sometimes we can't see. Okay, very nice. The lights there, but sometimes you can't see it.

00:01:35--> 00:01:38

Is there a situation where there isn't a light at the end of the tunnel?

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

No, there's always a light.

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

And that's good to know.

00:01:48--> 00:01:57

Definitely, that's different. Allah has noticed similar to an art is the Light of the heavens and the earth. Absolutely. And Allah is the ever existent? That's correct.

00:01:58--> 00:02:10

But the question is a light at the end of the tunnel, meaning in your specific predicament in New York, specific crisis in your life, right?

00:02:11--> 00:02:24

Sometimes it may seem as if there isn't a light at the end of the tunnel, but that's something inshallah we will discuss further. Before I delve into the topic. Please give me a quick

00:02:26--> 00:02:31

idea of your expectations from this workshop. Brothers and sisters.

00:02:34--> 00:02:38

I don't know if we need to pass the mic around or if you can make your voice heard.

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

No expectations

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

taken techniques

00:02:48--> 00:02:52

to find the light or to help others find that light. Okay, very nice. What else?

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

Yes.

00:02:57--> 00:03:07

What is going through in the situation? Okay, so the brother made it a little bit wider. So he's talking on the level of the ummah. That's

00:03:08--> 00:03:11

a huge topic, probably

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

maybe out of the realm of this workshop, because the domain of this workshop is more geared towards the individual. But to a certain extent, some of that you can extrapolate for the rest of the Ummah, but to talk about the the disease, or the diseases and the maladies that the homeless suffers from that's, that's a huge issue and maybe slightly different. Okay, sister, you had something

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

PCP man, definitely.

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

Okay.

00:03:54--> 00:03:55

Okay, okay.

00:03:56--> 00:04:09

So imagine this is talking about the importance of increasing, Amen. Yes. believing in the Bible, believing the father predestination, okay. Which is one of the what?

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

Pillars

00:04:14--> 00:04:17

because you see that whatever calamity comes to you.

00:04:18--> 00:04:22

How many pillars of Lehman Brothers six, six, these are basics for you guys?

00:04:23--> 00:04:41

This is easy stuff. Yes. What else expectations are we happy that there is like a dynamism, increasing our ERP and that we will find the light at the end of the tunnel. That's what else to stick follow because that person is being steadfast in the deed. Excellent.

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

All

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

right.

00:04:48--> 00:04:52

So we know the way to go. And this I think that

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

we know the way out or we don't know many of us know to some extent

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

Some of us know to a certain

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

level

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

is the issue. Right? Right. Finding that, in the context of your own predicament can be difficult at times. Absolutely. Yeah. Being able to apply our deen to our daily,

00:05:19--> 00:05:32

you know, particular. Okay. Okay, so applying the Dean on a daily basis to the dilemmas we face and things of that nature. Okay. Right? Absolutely. Just to understand, what is the situation?

00:05:35--> 00:05:38

Again, present situation meaning what do you mean?

00:05:40--> 00:05:43

Where we are now where we stand with me

00:05:45--> 00:05:49

comfortable, all of these expectations you have for this three hour workshop,

00:05:51--> 00:06:06

I thought it was four hours. And then after realizing when raesha will be answered, so there'll be more like three hours, and that the activities that you're going to do so that will be even less but in sha Allah, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us

00:06:08--> 00:06:25

to benefit and to try to answer a lot of these concerns. I when I did this workshop before, I had slightly different responses about expectations, but that's because the title was a little bit more vague. So that when the title was clear, I think things

00:06:26--> 00:06:37

became more clear. But this is pretty much what I want to talk to you about today. And ultimately, the the motivation for doing this workshop in the first place was that

00:06:39--> 00:06:46

a lot of the times our talks our lectures our presentations are geared towards

00:06:47--> 00:06:59

let me say good people like yourselves Masha Allah, all of the sisters are of hijab, you're all the light of Eman is shining from your faces. But what about people who are going through really difficult times?

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

who maybe are not attending the workshop.

00:07:04--> 00:07:09

And that problem is kind of a problem of marketing.

00:07:10--> 00:07:14

Doing such a workshop in the masjid in the first place.

00:07:16--> 00:07:21

It would be wiser and better if we could do it somewhere outside.

00:07:22--> 00:07:53

Because you are the practicing people, I don't think you have that many issues answering all of these questions Insha Allah, you will benefit from some of the techniques and so on. But I think you for all practical purposes know how to get yourself out. But what about others? Who don't have your level of Imam who don't have your same not love for the Dean, who used to have your level of love for the dean, but lost it somewhere along the way we

00:07:54--> 00:08:14

can be tragic and devastating. Right? How do we reach those people? At one point in Kuwait? And this is one of the beautiful ideas I felt, but I don't think it continued for too long. I'm not sure why. At one point, they said forget lectures and the massage. We're not doing lectures in the massages anymore.

00:08:15--> 00:08:31

If they won't come to us, we'll go to them. So where did they start having their lectures in the halls? Anybody witnessed that? Come on. I'm not that old. It was just a few years ago, remember that?

00:08:32--> 00:08:51

They would go to some of them. And then the chef would sit somewhere on the bottom and start talking about something Islamic. And then you see people you know, listening. You see people on the second and third floor standing and trying to hear the talk SubhanAllah. So basically, they said look

00:08:52--> 00:08:56

that the light of Islam should be like the ring.

00:08:57--> 00:09:19

If you are not going to be exposed, we're going to come to you. So this is how they were doing it. At one point it was beautiful. I thought it hadn't. I don't know. They're even they don't even remember it. I don't know what this was just I think less than 10 years ago. Nobody remembers you guys don't go to a mouse. Mashallah, there must have been two always.

00:09:23--> 00:09:30

Yeah, it wasn't too long. But it was successful. Because I saw it several times. And

00:09:31--> 00:09:43

people were, you know, some of the famous speakers you had and so on. And I think it had a positive effect, and then it stopped. it fizzled out for some reason. I'm not sure why.

00:09:44--> 00:09:58

Yeah, so, but that's the basic idea that we want to reach those people. We want to talk to those types of people. A lot of our talks are geared towards people who already agree with you

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

You're preaching to the choir, as they say,

00:10:04--> 00:10:23

you're already talking to people, you probably all agree with practically everything. I'm gonna say, what about those who disagree? What about those who are not at your level of ima, they need to hear these things. Right? They need to be given this type of hope. You said, of course, there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

00:10:25--> 00:10:36

For them, that might not be the immediate response, light at the end of the tunnel? Does it look like? Not in my life? Not if you know my situation, you know?

00:10:37--> 00:10:39

How many people have

00:10:41--> 00:10:51

experienced this themselves or talk to someone that relative or a friend went through something like this? Raise your hand and keep your hand raised?

00:10:53--> 00:11:05

Not very many, from the male practically none. From the sisters two or three. So yeah, brothers and sisters. Good. Glad. You reminded me without actually saying that.

00:11:07--> 00:11:17

The disclaimer is the following. Please don't be shy. Okay. Don't be ashamed. This is where we're going to air it all out. Okay.

00:11:18--> 00:11:26

We're not gonna keep anything hidden. We want to talk about problems. All right.

00:11:27--> 00:12:00

We're not here to save Oh, everything is beautiful. The birds are chirping and the flowers. No, this is dark. There's darkness. We want to find that light. Right? So, you know, this is not a time to you know, Oh, should I raise my hand? No, no, no, be very honest, be sincere, and be interactive. That's the whole idea of the workshop. I'm not gonna sit here and talk the whole time. Okay, I need to hear from you. All right, I need your participation as well. So,

00:12:01--> 00:12:26

by the way, those types of people, those people who are going through crises and predicaments are the ones who need such motivation most urgently more than possibly, you or me. They're the ones who need these types of things. But a lot of what we have in the world of Dawa is not geared towards that.

00:12:27--> 00:12:37

It's talking to people whose lives are for all practical purposes, going okay. To that things are

00:12:38--> 00:12:43

going well, but what about those people who feel like they're in a home?

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

Or maybe it's one of you.

00:12:49--> 00:13:01

You went through some serious disaster or calamity, and all of a sudden, you feel like you're in a hole and you just can't get out? Right? You need someone to help you.

00:13:03--> 00:13:14

You're doing everything you can you're trying to climb but it's just impossible. It's too deep. You have no strength. You don't know what happened to your email.

00:13:15--> 00:13:18

These are common problems or they're not brothers and sisters.

00:13:21--> 00:13:23

According to the update of the Sunnah, well, Gemma

00:13:25--> 00:13:28

Eman increases and decreases

00:13:30--> 00:13:34

the issue of Eman caused a lot of problems theologically in history

00:13:36--> 00:13:39

because of the idea that no, it's black or white.

00:13:41--> 00:13:41

It's

00:13:42--> 00:14:02

it's digital to zero or one, right? Either you're a Muslim or you're a Catholic, I can increase and decrease either you're Muslim or not. Either you're a believer or you're a disbeliever because of this idea, there was a lot of misguidance in the history and

00:14:03--> 00:14:05

it engendered two of the

00:14:07--> 00:14:12

most misguided sects of Islam they are

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

but the real clothes

00:14:20--> 00:14:30

specifically when we're talking to you are mentioning all of the different 73 sectors now know specifically with regards to the issue of E man.

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

which one

00:14:33--> 00:14:34

you're getting there.

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

We'll get it eventually maybe

00:14:40--> 00:14:40

EMA

00:14:42--> 00:14:43

think about EMA.

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

There is a Sikh that said

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

there's no such thing

00:14:55--> 00:14:57

the slightest sin you commit

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

Okay, thank you coverage.

00:15:02--> 00:15:06

If you commit a major sin,

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

you're a disbeliever.

00:15:09--> 00:15:10

This is cool.

00:15:12--> 00:15:23

But then, of course, the other companions, they debated with those types, to convince them otherwise. So these people went to the extreme.

00:15:25--> 00:15:33

Whereby they were thinking, Allah subhanaw taala This punishment is so severe, you commit a major sin, you are a Catholic.

00:15:35--> 00:15:40

So there is no hope for you if you committed such a sin. Now think of the opposite.

00:15:43--> 00:15:48

What's the opposite idea? And then I'll tell you the name if you didn't get it yet.

00:15:50--> 00:15:57

What is the opposite of the idea that whatever you do, it's no good to hear you man is nullified.

00:15:59--> 00:16:08

Whatever close the liberal ideology kind of takes a derives from such an ideology.

00:16:10--> 00:16:14

What's the opposite idea? Ideas, whatever.

00:16:15--> 00:16:21

You do, no problem. They're going to agenda Forget it. So they went to the other side.

00:16:22--> 00:16:24

Lie abou morality, Manny.

00:16:25--> 00:16:30

said as much as you want, you're a believer, you're a movement, they are called and more

00:16:32--> 00:16:33

the opposite of the coverage.

00:16:34--> 00:16:46

And this is a common problem, when we go to either of the two extremes. So the Hawaii Ridge are only thinking about the wrath and punishment of Allah.

00:16:47--> 00:17:00

And the more grsa Allah is most merciful and forgiving, and he will forgive all sins, and they forgot about the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala. Right. The Quran says, telling the prophets I was

00:17:02--> 00:17:07

telling my slave servants and the and Allah for Rahim that I am deed the forgiving and the merciful, whatever the other

00:17:08--> 00:17:16

and that my punishment is more severe. This is the balance. That is that gives us the balance we require.

00:17:18--> 00:17:22

Not too much dependence on fear of Allah.

00:17:23--> 00:17:31

And not too much dependence on home for the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala will always have to be in the middle. How do we gauge it?

00:17:32--> 00:17:33

introspection,

00:17:34--> 00:18:00

we have to look into ourselves, see where we are? Am I in a situation where I basically say, yes, I've done this sin and that Allah has was forgiving, most merciful, and I forgot about the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala, then I need to move more towards the right. If we can use those terms, you know, being on the right in the center on the left, or maybe you're on the other side.

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

And you knew, you're always feeling that Allah will never forgive me. And it's creating a feeling of despair for you. That means you're going towards the ideology of the homage now, you're only thinking about the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala. So you need a what, you need a dose of hope.

00:18:22--> 00:18:26

Right? Sometimes you will be your best doctor.

00:18:29--> 00:18:32

It will be very difficult for someone else to assess that situation for you.

00:18:33--> 00:18:40

So self evaluation is very important. Looking into our own situations.

00:18:41--> 00:18:46

Just as Yvonne increases and decreases and this is normal.

00:18:47--> 00:18:52

This is normal. And the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Taala mentioned this in authentic hadith.

00:18:53--> 00:18:55

This is a normal thing to occur.

00:18:56--> 00:19:03

When our email increases, we make the best use of that increased email.

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

Beware of the shape I'm telling you. No, no, no, you need to stay consistent. No, my dear. If your email is is going up, do more. Because this is not going to continue forever.

00:19:20--> 00:19:27

Do as much as you can. But then if your Eman decreases, what are you going to do that? It's going to go up and down. It's normal.

00:19:29--> 00:19:38

Yes, some people are fairly consistent. May Allah bless them and give them more of His Bounty.

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

But a lot of us are like this.

00:19:42--> 00:19:45

Up and down, up and down kind of like a sine wave.

00:19:46--> 00:19:48

Or cosine doesn't matter.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

But it's always fluctuating. Similarly, nobody lives their whole life in prosperity or adversity. Alone

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

shuttles, life shuttles in between prosperity and adversity. And sometimes you're living both at the same time. There are aspects of your life that you can categorize as prosperity and others that you would categorize as adversity, right.

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

So this is most normal.

00:20:22--> 00:20:23

And we need to

00:20:24--> 00:20:28

learn how to deal with those different situations.

00:20:29--> 00:20:30

First of all

00:20:35--> 00:20:47

let's talk about some of the important steps. And techniques that we can benefit from. One of the most important things that we can do in such situations is, of course, do

00:20:49--> 00:20:49

and do.

00:20:53--> 00:20:57

What when I'm seeing dua, and I'm starting with it, it's because you're basically

00:20:59--> 00:21:25

returning everything to Allah subhanaw taala, I'm going to do my part. And there are a lot of things we're going to talk about where these are things you and I need to do. But before all of that, sometimes we forget about the simplest, possibly the simplest and most direct solution. And this is dua to Allah subhanaw taala. Because it may very well be that I will take all of these steps.

00:21:27--> 00:21:38

But I will not succeed in improving my condition. It may be one, truly sincere Doha, from a pious Muslim,

00:21:39--> 00:21:44

maybe making Doha with something special

00:21:45--> 00:21:47

that you have done in your life.

00:21:49--> 00:21:52

And Allah subhanaw taala, lifts that predicament,

00:21:54--> 00:22:07

something special you did in your life, something, you know, almost for certain that it was sincere for Allah smart Allah because nobody else knows about it, but you.

00:22:10--> 00:22:15

You can make Doha that special thing. And you can say, well, Allah,

00:22:17--> 00:22:24

you are the only one who knows this D that I performed. If I did it sincerely for your sake,

00:22:25--> 00:22:31

then lift this predicament or solve

00:22:32--> 00:22:36

and get me out of this crisis that I'm suffering from. Right.

00:22:37--> 00:22:39

It may be that wonder

00:22:40--> 00:22:43

not all of the techniques that we will try.

00:22:44--> 00:22:50

What ultimately the Muslim always combines between Doha and between

00:22:53--> 00:23:15

other methods in order to solve their problem in order to try to increase their Eman to increase their level of patience and so on. And so off the two ads, the famous do has, that the prophets Allah Salam used to say, Can you give me some examples? What do you say when you're suffering or in a time of distress?

00:23:19--> 00:23:39

I call it a hustler. Okay. Okay. Beautiful, one of the famous to us and one that is focusing on the dunya and the earth. So in other words, that you have to be a hustler. I'm not only asking for things in Africa, but also in the dunya. Absolutely. And

00:23:41--> 00:23:56

try to see these general to answer as much as you can. What Allah He is worth all of the other two hours that we try to make, where we make it so specific, that you as of the prophets are similar or very general.

00:23:58--> 00:24:13

And covers everything that you are asking for a detail and a million times more. When you say something like Allah manliness, alchemical higher equaling finished, you ask for everything that is good.

00:24:15--> 00:24:40

My I need to mean who was that which I know other than that, which I then do not know. And I seek refuge from all evil, that I that a which I have knowledge and that of which I have no knowledge. You left nothing. Tell us you covered all bases with this Dora. You don't need to say any other drop. But unfortunately, these types of dots we

00:24:42--> 00:24:54

abandoned a lot of the times and we neglect Yes, I think the sister had an answer here. Another 200 during the time of distress specifically for distress.

00:24:56--> 00:24:56

Which one

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

do

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

It's excellent Masha Allah Allah Allah inlanta Subhanak in the container volume

00:25:06--> 00:25:09

who used to say this unit mashallah

00:25:11--> 00:25:14

guys got all bases covered? When did he say it?

00:25:18--> 00:25:22

Was the belly of the whale going forward now the top

00:25:24--> 00:25:26

Why is he saying it

00:25:29--> 00:25:38

Why do you say me continuing on what do you mean I was indeed of the wrongdoers he's a prophet because the COVID says doesn't profit commits

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

he gave up on his people

00:25:44--> 00:25:47

he made a mistake so profits make mistakes

00:25:51--> 00:25:54

guys remember some of my talks we used to talk about this no

00:25:56--> 00:25:58

some people are still confused about this issue.

00:26:00--> 00:26:07

The issue of prophets peace be upon them all making mistakes or not committing sins or not. Right? Correct.

00:26:08--> 00:26:20

Correct. Absolutely. And they seek forgiveness for those mistakes. So here is you know, Sunday syrup saying Larry Lila Subhanak is going to be on Monday I'll get to that and show what else give me another doc Yes.

00:27:51--> 00:27:54

Okay, this is close to that. What else?

00:27:55--> 00:27:57

Let me just try the ones who didn't guess whether

00:28:26--> 00:28:34

Let me know how many Okay, that's close. I have three specifically. Until now no one mentioned

00:28:37--> 00:28:42

so that's good. Inshallah will benefit. The sisters have their hand up. Yes. System.

00:28:44--> 00:28:55

Excellent. Even I didn't have that done. I'll add it in that Allah. In Allah Allah Allah, Allah, Allah general we belong to Allah to him, we will return this is mentioned in the context of

00:28:59--> 00:29:01

the context of death

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

is it

00:29:05--> 00:29:15

not only dead, but our modern usage of it is only in the context of death. So once you say, oh, who died?

00:29:16--> 00:29:25

When you died brothers, it's a calamity. So we say in our in our because Allah Subhana Allah said in the Noble Quran, he mentioned Well,

00:29:26--> 00:29:33

cultural Joy went up salmonella when he went and visited with Tamara Well, this shirt is soldering and Lavina either.

00:29:36--> 00:29:40

Roger, those, whom calamity strikes,

00:29:41--> 00:29:52

then they say in that allowing, that is one of those calamities otherwise can be used in agnosia Excellent. You had another one sister.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

Thank you, Erica. Luffy This is direct. Allah ma join me fee we'll see but he

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

What

00:30:03--> 00:30:05

have I noticed? Ah, raise your hand.

00:30:08--> 00:30:14

Watch Less than I thought, Great. Now you have a new addition to your

00:30:15--> 00:30:23

portfolio along my journey if he will see, but he Oh Allah grants me reward in this calamity of mine

00:30:25--> 00:30:29

and grant me or replace it with something better.

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

Subhan Allah, if you look at the Quran

00:30:34--> 00:30:35

and several locations

00:30:37--> 00:30:40

it's it's audacious, actually.

00:30:42--> 00:30:43

People who are asking

00:30:45--> 00:31:08

for rectification of their affairs and replacement with something better are usually people who sinned Subhanallah you would expect the opposite. The people who are pious, who have filled their life with obedience, and then they ask Allah subhanaw taala for something better by the Quran. There are several examples.

00:31:11--> 00:31:14

I will tell you where we'll leave it maybe as a

00:31:15--> 00:31:16

bonus question

00:31:17--> 00:31:18

where

00:31:19--> 00:31:21

the sinners

00:31:22--> 00:31:34

are not only asking for forgiveness, but for something to replace their situation and to improve it and make it better than it was before the car even though their calamity was

00:31:35--> 00:31:38

because of their sins. Yes brother. Which one?

00:31:39--> 00:31:40

The one

00:31:41--> 00:32:10

that got to go burning. Excellent Mashallah. Give him a price brother's car prices. We didn't agree on the price. Give him something excellent mother, Monica Luffy the people of the garden right? When they went out and they were hosting and they were arrogant and they thought that this garden will remain forever and Allah subhanaw taala destroyed it in a night and then they sought the forgiveness of Allah and they said oh Allah give us something better than what we had. It's audacious.

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

Only Allah

00:32:15--> 00:32:18

can respond to a request like this

00:32:19--> 00:32:24

and give someone what they're asking for after something like this.

00:32:25--> 00:32:31

Bye you a lot majority people say well, what's the context of this draft system? Since you mentioned that to us?

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

The story you know the story how many you know the story of this draft? Raise your hand

00:32:40--> 00:32:41

sisters are ahead of you.

00:32:43--> 00:32:55

Yeah, brother, you know the story. Very good. But since most do not maybe you forgot you know what you forgot it was a long time. So maybe I should mention or the sister can tell us Yes.

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

Excellent.

00:33:02--> 00:33:04

So basically, um selama

00:33:05--> 00:33:06

brother, Allah Allah.

00:33:07--> 00:33:13

When her husband mo Salah died. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told her

00:33:14--> 00:33:26

see this to happen? Lama God if he will see but you actually if he hired me, immediately, I mean, they were Arabs, they understood what is meant immediately. So she said, Who is better than my husband? Who said I'm a

00:33:27--> 00:34:02

messenger of Allah. In other words, how is Allah gonna grant me something better than my husband? Salah right? I know, all your wives are probably saying the same when you die. They will say oh, how can I help somebody better than my previous previous husband? So she said, how would it happen and then eventually the Prophet sallallaahu Selim Marisa, Allah, so Allah answered her door I'm granted or someone many times better than Abu selama right allah God if he will see with you absolutely favor. Mina, what else?

00:34:04--> 00:34:08

Allah made me I will become in they'll hand me what hazardous?

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

Right?

00:34:11--> 00:34:45

The famous da Allah, I seek refuge in You from grief and from sadness when a loved one has a one minute lag Z while kissin and from incapacity and laziness. One minute it took me a while and from cowardice and greed, women Dany waka, hurry, read return from the the over powering nature of debt and from the oppression of the men, not your husband's men, like you know the oppression of a tyrant or

00:34:48--> 00:34:56

or any type of oppressor or someone who wronged you in one way or another. So this is another one of those dots of course,

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

during times of calamity

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

Man increases and decreases. What should I see?

00:35:09--> 00:35:10

Yeah

00:35:14--> 00:35:18

oh you overturns the hearts, keep my heart steady and firm

00:35:19--> 00:35:20

in this

00:35:23--> 00:35:24

brothers and sisters

00:35:28--> 00:35:30

in these situations,

00:35:32--> 00:35:34

calamities, predicaments crises.

00:35:35--> 00:35:39

People many times fall into despair.

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

And they feel that there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

00:35:44--> 00:35:49

That could be because of a personal crisis.

00:35:50--> 00:35:53

Crisis of health, financial crisis

00:35:56--> 00:36:02

maybe a crisis in D. Willa, Willa, may Allah subhanaw taala protect us

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

Excuse me.

00:36:07--> 00:36:10

Some people may get to the level of Despair not

00:36:12--> 00:36:17

only in the context of a crisis that seems to have no solution.

00:36:19--> 00:36:27

But even because they feel that they can never truly repent sincerely and come back to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:36:29--> 00:36:32

Maybe they feel that they are destined

00:36:33--> 00:36:35

to a life of sins, while

00:36:37--> 00:36:39

at distance from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:36:41--> 00:36:45

So, maybe they get to that level, where they look at the likes of you.

00:36:47--> 00:36:48

And they say, I wish I could be like that.

00:36:50--> 00:36:58

I wish I could walk into a masjid and feel, the joy, the peace, the tranquility, that they feel

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

this Jana that you have in your hearts,

00:37:04--> 00:37:20

this paradise that you are carrying around in your heart, which maybe we have taken for granted, other people would pay fortunes for, but they simply don't have it. Because it's not just something that you can, it's not something you can transplant.

00:37:21--> 00:37:30

I don't think if you were to give them your heart that the man would be transplanted with it.

00:37:32--> 00:37:38

This is something else, this is your ROI. This is your spirit spirituality. They longed for that.

00:37:39--> 00:37:41

Maybe they wish they can have it.

00:37:42--> 00:37:49

And as much as you try to give them hope you feel they're full of the Spirit. The Shavonda has

00:37:50--> 00:37:53

really done an excellent job of those types.

00:37:54--> 00:37:57

In that calamity that you're suffering from.

00:37:58--> 00:38:05

Naturally, the calamity of the dunya eventually becomes a calamity. Possibly God forbid and the

00:38:07--> 00:38:08

Eman starts to decrease.

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

Many people Subhanallah

00:38:12--> 00:38:17

they have qualms with the deed,

00:38:18--> 00:38:23

because of their dunya they start blaming the dean

00:38:24--> 00:38:52

for their problems in dunya. The example being people who feel that the deed in some way restricts them doesn't allow them to live their lives to the fullest. Like they'd like to live it. They want to do everything there is to do in life. But the Dean somehow doesn't allow them to do so. The dean has too many limitations. So dude,

00:38:55--> 00:38:58

this is one extreme then you have the other extreme

00:38:59--> 00:39:01

people who

00:39:04--> 00:39:05

complain

00:39:06--> 00:39:08

about the dunya

00:39:10--> 00:39:12

or rather complain about the team because of their dunya

00:39:14--> 00:39:25

those are the types of people whose lives Allah azza wa jal keeps us firm who lives difficult lives truly went through

00:39:26--> 00:39:32

debilitating circumstances, things that would devastate even the strongest and Eman.

00:39:34--> 00:39:38

Subhanallah it's as if misfortune is their lot in life. Right.

00:39:40--> 00:39:43

And then they start putting that on what on the deed

00:39:45--> 00:39:46

because of the deed

00:39:47--> 00:39:52

where I have been a Muslim for 3040 years, look at my life

00:39:55--> 00:39:57

so they say forget about Islam altogether.

00:40:01--> 00:40:07

Natural, such calamities in the dunya may affect the deal. And vice versa.

00:40:09--> 00:40:11

So in these situations,

00:40:13--> 00:40:18

whenever you or a loved one, or a friend or a relative

00:40:19--> 00:40:28

seems to be surrounded by despair, this is where you need to give them a very big dose of hope.

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

How

00:40:33--> 00:40:34

have you do that?

00:40:37--> 00:40:39

That's not a rhetorical question.

00:40:42--> 00:40:43

How would you do

00:40:45--> 00:40:51

you remind them that there's a light at the end of the tunnel detail. You know, I've been hearing this for the last 20 years.

00:40:53--> 00:40:54

What labor then

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

show the light.

00:41:02--> 00:41:14

They don't see it as like, they tell you 30 years. I'm a Muslim. And I'm, you know, I'm not that practicing. But I'm fairly practicing. Look what it gave me. Look at my life.

00:41:16--> 00:41:20

Make dua for them. Definitely. But now you're trying to give them hope.

00:41:21--> 00:41:24

Experience your own experience. Okay.

00:41:26--> 00:41:29

I experienced something similar. You're not alone. All right. What else?

00:41:30--> 00:41:31

Yes. Just a minute.

00:41:37--> 00:41:38

Excellent.

00:41:39--> 00:41:43

So they were Muslim and then they apostatize okay.

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

I thought

00:41:51--> 00:41:54

obviously, the question he asked me, Corrado.

00:41:59--> 00:42:01

And then after he said to me,

00:42:03--> 00:42:08

and I said, How was that working for you? I said, I believe I have something

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

that can

00:42:14--> 00:42:18

sneak into you. Right? I said, I have something.

00:42:19--> 00:43:04

So I kind of revise it, or whatever. What have you benefited from? What did you find? Nothing? Right. Excellent. Listen, from from that perspective, and I appreciate the sister telling us a story. We need more of these. And I'm sure all of you have had maybe similar experiences. When you're telling him the coming from the angular you have nothing and I have something or everything? Absolutely. This is in terms of convincing trying to show them that you basically replaced, you know, the best thing that you had with absolutely nothing. 100% agree. But at the same time, especially when you're arguing with an atheist, you need to show them that

00:43:05--> 00:43:22

what you're following also is a religion of its own. In other words, you claim to have no religion, but actually you do you have a conviction, and it's called no God, the lack of existence of God. Right. And that's, of course, totally.

00:43:23--> 00:43:28

That's lunacy. Okay, so then they start telling you, but this is going to take us on a tangent.

00:43:29--> 00:43:31

Prove to me that there's God

00:43:32--> 00:43:33

beware of that pitfall.

00:43:35--> 00:43:41

That No, wait, the rule is the obvious

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

thesis or hypothesis is that there is a God, you prove to me that there is no God.

00:43:49--> 00:43:52

The burden of proof is on him not on you.

00:43:53--> 00:44:06

Right. Yeah. Yeah. stration wants to come up on me not expect actually, because he was very intrigued that I was actually became Muslim, right.

00:44:07--> 00:44:13

It was kind of like, what, why why did you do that? Like I come in here, right.

00:44:17--> 00:44:20

He sat down, he told me the reason.

00:44:23--> 00:44:27

People are not right, right. Absolutely.

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

Right,

00:44:34--> 00:44:35

absolutely, absolutely. I mean

00:44:39--> 00:44:59

for a lot of them, they become atheists because of certain skepticism and misconceptions and doubts, but others maybe because of because of calamities problems, and other still because they don't see any other alternative. So So one person I saw and I wasn't

00:45:00--> 00:45:07

The state, but he's like I'm an atheist. I'm like, Okay, well, you always want these are no, I was a Christian.

00:45:08--> 00:45:30

So when he saw that Christianity is not the right way that he didn't see any other alternative. So, okay if it's not this that atheism right, he didn't find the truth to be able to go to a before atheism. There was another reply here

00:45:32--> 00:45:34

giving giving people hope, yes.

00:45:41--> 00:45:57

Okay, so remembering those people before us remembering the best of humanity also experienced those difficulties? Yes. There is always someone who is facing more serious trouble. Absolutely. Right. This even though it's not

00:45:58--> 00:46:05

it's not the maybe the most direct evidence for it. But in the Quran, Allah tells us what phone call could be the relevant highly.

00:46:07--> 00:46:19

And over every person of knowledge is someone even more knowledgeable, you can extrapolate and say similarly, if you are having problems, someone else is having even more than Guess what?

00:46:20--> 00:46:38

Every time you say, it cannot get any worse. All of a sudden, it will. This has happened to a relative of mine. And believe me almost the instant they said cannot get any worse. It did.

00:46:39--> 00:46:56

Beware of this. This is an example of objection against the other and can be very dangerous. Yes, sister? Yes, I think take action to take some kind of support some kind of active

00:46:57--> 00:47:03

help, right? Absolutely. Yes. Monica Luffy. Oh, nice to talk is that

00:47:04--> 00:47:05

when somebody's

00:47:06--> 00:47:25

upset, they want action? Absolutely. A lot of times we just theorize, okay. We just, you know, we talk the talk, but you know, we don't necessarily walk the walk, we don't give them what they need of therapy of help of counseling of aid, or whatever it is.

00:47:26--> 00:47:30

This happens a lot. I'm actually in that regard.

00:47:31--> 00:47:35

I got another story when I was in the US a lady

00:47:36--> 00:47:43

when she heard about the predicament of many Arabs and Muslims, okay, having issues with,

00:47:45--> 00:47:50

you know, civil rights being discriminated against and things, things of that nature.

00:47:51--> 00:48:00

It amazed me that in the instance, she heard about it, she didn't give lip service in any way, she immediately took action.

00:48:01--> 00:48:35

So I was informing her about the situation of one of the brothers. So she said, we have a meeting today. And so and so organization, I'm going to bring that up to the meeting today. And we'll try to do something about it. So her, her practicality impressed me, you know, someone else might say, hello and uploaded level, May Allah help you. That's fine and all but you know, what I should get to do about it. And she's a non Muslim, by the way, right? So being practical, as the system says, type one of the person you're trying to instill hope in

00:48:37--> 00:48:46

does have a man, but it's kind of shattered. So it gives you the avenue of quoting from the Quran

00:48:47--> 00:48:50

of trying to help them but through the Quran.

00:48:53--> 00:48:56

Where would you go? Well, when do you say

00:48:57--> 00:48:59

story of Jonas? Sam, excellent.

00:49:08--> 00:49:11

Now you've got me into a predicament.

00:49:12--> 00:49:59

Because I'd have to explain this a little bit. And I didn't want to, because it might take a little bit of time. But maybe you can remind me at the end Subhanallah This happened in the same way in the last workshop. And I had to delay it as well. So the sister is saying Allah will not test you beyond your capacity. It's a very common idea. And it's a very good answer. But maybe in the end, I'll try to comment on this. Okay, what else give me verses so basically, at the time of the Amazon seller at the time of the Cadbury they used to I mean, they were living with not like you and me, okay, but they were living with on a daily basis. Okay, it was always here and here. Alright.

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

Okay, so they would surmise about, which

00:50:08--> 00:50:12

gives, you know, those in despair the most hope, which I hear

00:50:14--> 00:50:22

is the most scary when it comes to those who are sinful are the sinners. Okay? So can you think of an idea

00:50:24--> 00:50:27

that fills people with hope

00:50:29--> 00:50:30

that you can quote

00:50:33--> 00:50:33

okay.

00:50:35--> 00:50:37

This is in the context of sinners.

00:50:39--> 00:50:42

This is in the context of sinners, Allah azza wa jal says,

00:50:44--> 00:50:46

Well, you have A Madea Latina Asafa Allah

00:50:49--> 00:50:55

Matilda, this too many was the idea that gives the most hope

00:50:57--> 00:50:58

to a sinner.

00:50:59--> 00:51:13

If someone comes to you and says, I have done everything in the book, every sin you can think of and you cannot think of I have done when Allah ever forgive me. You recite this I

00:51:15--> 00:51:30

say you have Muhammad Oh my slave servants that have wronged themselves. Do not despair of the mercy of Allah. It doesn't get any better than that, no matter what you have done.

00:51:31--> 00:51:38

Let Rahmatullah in the Maya. Luba Jamia Allah Subhana Allah Allah forgives all sins in the world.

00:51:39--> 00:51:45

What an Ebola become a turn to your Lord. So he doesn't keep it at that, because this

00:51:47--> 00:51:48

opens the door of hope.

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

So a person thinks

00:51:53--> 00:51:58

nobody is ever going to be punished based on this.

00:51:59--> 00:52:03

But soon after what I need will Arabic Kumar Ehsanullah public

00:52:05--> 00:52:10

turn to Allah before the punishment comes through otherwise, people would have

00:52:11--> 00:52:18

maybe completely dependent on the mercy of Allah like the origin that we mentioned the beginning of the talk, okay.

00:52:20--> 00:52:30

In fact, in authentic hadith And subhanAllah, I used to know many years ago and it just came to my mind now, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, I believe it's insane,

00:52:31--> 00:52:32

that

00:52:35--> 00:52:42

the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala is so extensive, that you would think that nobody is going to go to hellfire.

00:52:44--> 00:52:49

And the punishment of a man is so severe that you would think that no one will go to paradise.

00:52:50--> 00:52:53

This is the balance that we need to keep.

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

This is what we're talking about.

00:52:57--> 00:53:01

Being between hope, and fear, but

00:53:02--> 00:53:03

but

00:53:04--> 00:53:12

these people, the situations we're talking about here are people who are already on the cliff

00:53:14--> 00:53:16

almost in complete despair

00:53:18--> 00:53:19

for these types

00:53:22--> 00:53:23

they need hope.

00:53:26--> 00:53:27

They don't need fear.

00:53:28--> 00:53:31

They're way off balance

00:53:32--> 00:53:47

their way on the right if we can call it the right and you need to try to bring them back to the to the center. So this is in the context of cynic. What about the idea that infuses us with hope

00:53:48--> 00:53:51

in the context of life's calamities?

00:53:54--> 00:53:55

Yeah.

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

This Sabrina,

00:54:00--> 00:54:19

00:54:39--> 00:54:39

00:54:40--> 00:54:43

Allah subhanaw taala is confirming it? Yes. What else?

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

Was that?

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

But Baraka lottery excellence, my brother's gonna get several prizes today.

00:54:57--> 00:55:00

Okay, what's the if so the brother

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

I was saying two units of relief for one unit of hardship and the prophets are still upset commenting on this eight that one unit of hardship will not overpower

00:55:15--> 00:55:32

two units of ease in Mr. Lewis, who you saw in the Malossi user, in other words, definitely after difficulty or hardship comes ease Excellent. What's the is system that gives us the meaning that you were talking about now?

00:55:34--> 00:55:36

That's the I am looking for

00:55:40--> 00:55:49

Okay, he's Aricept but that's specifically about the risk right only in allawah Zappia. But that comes after what? After which i

00:55:52--> 00:56:06

That's after well, that q4 is a declarative Mini and then Maori do minimalist didn't wanna redo anytime when Allah was up. So there it's it's it's talking about how Allah subhanaw taala

00:56:07--> 00:56:10

has no need for any of us.

00:56:11--> 00:56:16

And that's a different okay, and that there was another hand Yes, sister. Did you get the I

00:56:18--> 00:56:19

00:56:51--> 00:56:57

is completely you know, unseen you cannot even expect

00:56:59--> 00:57:02

to get me out of this I can't even imagine it.

00:57:03--> 00:57:29

And this is why he says afterwards where zuku min height to lie. And we will provide for him from where he least expected. You know, they tell you you say this if she What do you mean? I told you my situation? Where is it gonna come from? My dear? Did you hear the I mean Hi thriller is gonna come from a place you do not expect. So you cannot love see?

00:57:31--> 00:57:48

00:57:50--> 00:57:53

baby. Did you ever wonder

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

where this idea came? What are you talking like?

00:57:59--> 00:58:01

Which one so Telok

00:58:04--> 00:58:05

what comes to your head

00:58:10--> 00:58:12

isn't palak a calamity

00:58:16--> 00:58:17

actually,

00:58:18--> 00:58:29

this air coming in this surah is proof of the extent of crisis that prologue really is

00:58:32--> 00:58:41

and the only ones who can vouch for that are those who have tried it may Allah subhanaw taala distance it from all Muslim homes.

00:58:43--> 00:58:44

It's coming in the context of

00:58:46--> 00:59:13

you might have thought we are with this I accompany this idea for many was if they were asked what is the idea that gives a person the most hope in the time of the Spirit is this when they get to your child level Maharajah whatever inspires and fears Allah Allah will make a way out for them and grant them from where they least expected and whoever depends on Allah Allah subhanaw taala suffices that one if you thought about it you might have thought

00:59:15--> 00:59:17

we would that come after what predicament

00:59:20--> 00:59:55

which maybe some people underestimate yesterday you said we were talking for somebody who wasn't really pious that much right so when it tequila tacos I think that's a change of time that is true but not seem services absolute so he said this even worse acid Okay. Granted, granted, so what shall I do however, however, it's it's when you say your Maharaja because that's all he is looking for? Yes, yes. He's telling me Give me a way out and you tell him you want a way out.

00:59:57--> 00:59:58

Work towards

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

you're not telling him

01:00:00--> 01:00:13

and be like, shake so and so. But you're trying to get them on that track and telling them Allah is telling you, because when I tell him there's a way out, I'm a regular human being.

01:00:14--> 01:00:26

I can try to help you to a way out. But no, Allah is telling you there's a way out. And the way out is stuck. In other words, get on that road. And if they start,

01:00:27--> 01:00:45

who knows? Maybe they'll be able to continue. You know what I mean? But in terms of the, because this is the only idea that mentions it in this way. Your jungler who Maharajah right away out. And this is what people want. The light at the end of the tunnel, right?

01:00:47--> 01:01:10

is the way to rectify your situation. You're not doing your prayers, right. Try to do your prayers, right. You are doing committing Listen, listen, that's it. Stop trying to repent, even if it's gradual, but make you wait wait towards Allah subhanaw taala guess what, then you remind them of the Hadith.

01:01:11--> 01:01:42

Whoever comes a little bit closer to Allah, Allah comes much closer to him, right? Obviously not geographically or physically but you come towards Allah subhanaw taala he comes to you which quicker you take a small inching or Inkling towards Allah subhanaw taala he will come to you quicker and even more you you start to talk about these things Wallah you start to melt their hearts

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

yes someone had someone else had something

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

just system

01:01:53--> 01:02:00

by the way, remind ourselves also we keep saying remind them as we are working to remind ourselves and yes system.

01:02:04--> 01:02:15

Yes, yes. Excellent. The names of Allah subhanaw taala was the most merciful is the most forgiving. What about the Hadith? Hadith of the prophets of Salaam?

01:02:19--> 01:02:21

What the general meaning of it was.

01:02:25--> 01:02:30

Yes, this is what we were just mentioning now. Exactly. Yes. You have

01:02:31--> 01:02:32

to be

01:02:33--> 01:02:52

excellent. Excellent. If you do not associate any partners with Allah, even if you committed sins, the earth spilled the fill of the earth, Allah subhanaw taala can forgive so in other words, never ever be in the spirit. We're still on point number two brother. Give me a minute.

01:02:54--> 01:02:59

Okay, yeah, we will take a small break, just let me finish

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

this part.

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

What we can also say

01:03:06--> 01:03:09

is that no matter what you have done in your life,

01:03:11--> 01:03:12

keep trying,

01:03:13--> 01:03:22

no matter how much you've tried, because a lot of these people or if we are in that situation, God forbid.

01:03:24--> 01:03:34

They want maybe deep down, they would like to improve. They would like to become better. They want to become closer. But somehow they're just not able to.

01:03:36--> 01:03:38

And they tell you Well,

01:03:39--> 01:03:43

I can't do it perfectly. It's gonna be imperfect.

01:03:44--> 01:03:48

In that situation, and perfection might be acceptable. I mean,

01:03:50--> 01:03:52

let's say a person is drinking alcohol.

01:03:54--> 01:03:55

And they're not pregnant.

01:03:57--> 01:04:06

And you tell them, brother, sister, leave the sin. This invites the Wrath of Allah subhanaw taala start praying. I tell you, I cannot I'm addicted.

01:04:09--> 01:04:17

Can I pray only or just pray and continue in this Kabira that I'm doing this major set.

01:04:18--> 01:04:21

Maybe someone will say no. You have to leave it. This is a career of

01:04:24--> 01:04:26

in that situation.

01:04:27--> 01:04:35

They're drinking of alcohol. They're committing of this major sin is less of a sin than what? The not praying.

01:04:37--> 01:04:46

Prayer is the last frontier my brothers and sisters. Prayer is the last thing meaning. It's the last thing that she

01:04:47--> 01:04:52

is able to eliminate in your life after which he owns you.

01:04:53--> 01:04:54

Before that,

01:04:55--> 01:04:59

he probably doesn't own you. But if he gets to pray

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

In

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

the last fortress, the last wall

01:05:05--> 01:05:19

he owes you. It's like a fortress. Many walls. He breaks into the first, the second, the third. The last one is prayer. If he breaks through that, you're done. You're finished.

01:05:21--> 01:05:21

Prayer

01:05:23--> 01:05:27

is the most important duty

01:05:29--> 01:05:30

that a Muslim can perform.

01:05:31--> 01:05:40

grounds it? Absolutely. Absolutely. Does anyone disagree with the statement? Prayer is the most important duty?

01:05:42--> 01:05:43

Anyone disagree?

01:05:45--> 01:05:47

It's one of the pillars of Islam.

01:05:48--> 01:05:49

Is there a pillar that's more important?

01:05:52--> 01:05:57

I said, the most important duty for a Muslim he's already done this.

01:05:58--> 01:06:03

Now, I didn't say for a human being the most important duty for a human being is

01:06:04--> 01:06:10

to enter into Islam, but the most important duty for a Muslim He's already a Muslim is prayer.

01:06:12--> 01:06:13

Okay,

01:06:14--> 01:06:18

they are addicted to this or that God forbid.

01:06:19--> 01:06:24

They need to start praying otherwise they'll never make it towards Allah subhanaw taala.

01:06:25--> 01:06:32

As the sister said, maybe in one of the salutes, something happens, something

01:06:33--> 01:06:45

miraculous happens. They're touched the layers upon layers, you know, over their hearts start to dissolve or lifted.

01:06:46--> 01:06:57

They need that connection. Without that connection. They can never make it towards the last part out in the first place. So in that situation, yes. Do whatever you're doing but start praying.

01:06:59--> 01:07:04

You must pray. This is the main thing that distinguishes between a believer and a disbeliever.

01:07:06--> 01:07:19

This is the main thing that can possibly protect them from the shaper. Otherwise, it's going to be most difficult. So yes. Now you say but what about into salata and fascia, it will mooncup

01:07:21--> 01:07:41

Prayer should prohibit one from these immoralities right. And since Yes, that's the perfect that most complete prayer. They're not there yet. They're not even praying for God's sake. Beware of these zeros at once. The mutually exclusive

01:07:43--> 01:07:49

conundrum. It's almost like that either this or that. Right? I remember long back.

01:07:51--> 01:07:55

You know, a brother would say something like I'm not gonna go to Hajj until I am

01:07:56--> 01:07:56

pure.

01:08:00--> 01:08:06

That's the whole idea. Right? But they don't want to go into heart to heart until they are

01:08:07--> 01:08:20

perfect. So guess what? They will die and they will not go to church because they've never reached that level of perfection. Okay. Another mother brother. You should pray. Yes, I want to pray. Okay.

01:08:21--> 01:08:25

But not yet. Why? Because I cannot pray five.

01:08:26--> 01:08:28

Okay, why not?

01:08:29--> 01:08:37

No, I can't. So I'm not gonna pray it off. I said no, pray two or three to start. Do something.

01:08:38--> 01:08:44

No, it's either this or that. This mutually exclusive. Either misconception it's

01:08:46--> 01:08:51

either Everything or Nothing. No, that's not the way it works.

01:08:52--> 01:09:00

It's not the way it works. I'm gonna have to stop here and we will continue inshallah. We'll take a small 510 minute break
