if we start by filling the right side of the machine which is the furthest from the entrance it will make it a lot easier for us later and it will save us time instead of having to

00:02:04--> 00:02:05

ask you later

00:02:07--> 00:02:14

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

we will support it

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

is our

00:16:01--> 00:16:03

government machine come as a needle to the Apollo

00:16:27--> 00:16:28

My dear brothers,

00:16:29--> 00:16:40

please get let's move forward from the gaps and try to show that starting from next week to fill in the right side, your right side my left side first.

00:16:41--> 00:16:44

And a lot of people to walk in and clear the

00:16:45--> 00:16:48

the entrance area. So please move forward fill in all the gas.

00:16:53--> 00:16:58

show my wife request also from the brothers outside to fill it in. First, before we

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

we use that extension.

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

Dear brothers and sisters

00:17:06--> 00:17:12

a very interesting experience that I had in my recent trip.

00:17:15--> 00:17:16

When we can do

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

prompted me to think

00:17:20--> 00:17:22

about today's topic.

00:17:27--> 00:17:37

I went with a group of brothers to the buffet. The buffet is a graveyard known to some people agenda to buffet

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

besides the monster.

00:17:41--> 00:17:45

That's where many of the companions of the Prophet peace be upon.

00:17:46--> 00:17:50

According to some reports about 10,000 are buried.

00:17:52--> 00:17:59

And anytime I go to Medina, one of my favorite activities is affiliate prayer, there's a barrier. So I like to go.

00:18:01--> 00:18:06

And very often I take in someone with me just to go and say to them,

00:18:07--> 00:18:12

to the believers who are very there, and at the same time participate in the janazah.

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

Because anyone that follows the janazah

00:18:16--> 00:18:20

at the stage with it, it feels very the promise of a one liner

00:18:21--> 00:18:22

will go home with

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

two kids. And he said each one they said what is what is a pillow.

00:18:32--> 00:18:42

how big or how heavy or how much it is, of goodies, the promise of low Hollywood cinema said the payoff is as big as the amount of

00:18:44--> 00:18:44

metal

00:18:46--> 00:19:05

the amount of effort of good deeds. That's how much you get. And if a person prays demands only the end does not participate in the burial will get only one share. So two shares if you pray the mother and your father, the developer, the funeral until the bodies buried in one share if you only pray.

00:19:06--> 00:19:10

So we pray every almost after every salon there is

00:19:11--> 00:19:18

there is janazah and maternity which is a good reminder. Because we always think to yourself,

00:19:21--> 00:19:23

would I get this this privilege?

00:19:25--> 00:19:29

You know, would there come a time where it will be me that people are praying for

00:19:31--> 00:19:34

so it's a good reminder. And you pray every prayer

00:19:36--> 00:19:38

with a reminder that it may be your last prayer.

00:19:41--> 00:19:43

And there are people who went there

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

and their plan was to go there for two weeks and then come back.

00:19:50--> 00:19:54

We hope that they were fortunate to be buried or to die and to be buried

00:19:55--> 00:19:56

in the polylines

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

so we went

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

And then as we went there, I told the brothers, maybe it will be a good idea for us to walk around the grave, the grave, and reflect and think

00:20:13--> 00:20:24

about our health. You see, Stephen Covey wrote a book called, many people are familiar with called Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.

00:20:25--> 00:20:30

And he talks about the habits and the qualities that you have to be successful in life.

00:20:32--> 00:20:36

Number two brothers and sisters, is begin with the end in mind

00:20:38--> 00:20:40

began with the end in mind.

00:20:42--> 00:21:06

And indeed, if you want to be successful in this life, you have to keep the end in mind. And brothers and sisters, our end is not the degree or the promotion, or the money, or the big huge house, or mansion that we may be living in No, our end is that great in this life, our home is

00:21:07--> 00:21:13

that little hole that you won't even choose or pick, you will be lower there, and you will be nice.

00:21:14--> 00:21:18

That's the act. And that's why the

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

pieces

00:21:22--> 00:21:23

come to

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

Parliament.

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

Presumably,

00:21:33--> 00:21:38

the property said, I had previous apartment that I previously

00:21:40--> 00:21:49

had forbidden from visiting the grace, because there was a chance that they might engage in any practice that was an assignment.

00:21:50--> 00:21:57

They have just accepted Islam they were, they came back from a pagan background. So they did not want to have anything to do with.

00:21:58--> 00:22:13

So for years, and then later, the prophet said to them, now, I tell you to go and visit the greys because they're a good reminder of the here after they remind you of your end. They help you refocus

00:22:14--> 00:22:17

and concentrate on what is important.

00:22:18--> 00:22:21

They make you realize what life is all about.

00:22:23--> 00:23:09

And in the process, in his own practice is upon us to go and visit the graves. And he used to go and offer his readings, to those who pass away and pray for them. And in the greetings, because some people sometimes they don't like the spiritual the grief. And then we don't even like to talk about his reality is the reality that that nobody denies. You don't have to be a Muslim, you don't have to be a believer, you don't have to everybody agrees everybody believes everybody knows that one day they shall die. But people like to put off even the the thought of it. They don't want to think about it is scary. It ruins the fun. But this is reality. And you will be fooling yourself. And I'll

00:23:09--> 00:23:13

be fooling you if we don't talk about this, and if we don't prepare ourselves for it.

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

So we

00:23:18--> 00:23:20

used to go and pray for

00:23:26--> 00:23:29

peace be upon you are the weapons of the grace.

00:23:30--> 00:23:36

May Allah forgive you forgive your sins and your sins. And to Salah phenomena when

00:23:37--> 00:23:41

you are ahead of us and we will catch up with you. This is a reality.

00:23:43--> 00:23:44

So we went

00:23:45--> 00:23:49

and I found a grave that was open. There are many of them.

00:23:53--> 00:23:56

So I just stood there and I started taking a good look

00:23:58--> 00:24:04

at the grade and I sat down. I was trying to reflect and think.

00:24:06--> 00:24:08

And then and then it got very intense.

00:24:10--> 00:24:16

So I just got up and I was about to leave. When a little device that I had in my pocket, I felt

00:24:20--> 00:24:21

it felt in some degree.

00:24:23--> 00:24:25

I was terrified. Now I have to go

00:24:27--> 00:24:28

get down again.

00:24:31--> 00:24:34

And somehow a lot I had

00:24:35--> 00:24:43

in mind for a while just to see how it could have been done to agree. But it was in the process of burying me somewhere. But this time I'm going down.

00:24:45--> 00:24:46

And I don't know if I'm going to come up or not.

00:24:47--> 00:24:56

So I jumped and I picked that little device put it in my pocket when I was about to jump up. I tried to jump up and I felt inside again. I couldn't I slipped

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

and that was a very good thing.

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

Because I took a moment right there, and I said, I think

00:25:04--> 00:25:07

a day will come where you are not going to make it out.

00:25:08--> 00:25:12

A day will come where you go, you're going to be lowered and the great and

00:25:16--> 00:25:18

then I jumped, I managed to get out.

00:25:20--> 00:25:25

I was shocked. I was a state of shock for hours, when one of the brothers came to me.

00:25:27--> 00:25:30

And he said, You have to tell me what happened to you.

00:25:31--> 00:25:34

Because he disappeared, we saw him and then he disappeared.

00:25:36--> 00:25:37

And then he popped up again.

00:25:38--> 00:25:40

And then now you're quiet. What happened?

00:25:41--> 00:25:43

And I shared with him

00:25:44--> 00:25:51

this little story that happened to me. And he made a very interesting comment, which I will share with him.

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

And then he said, You have to share this with people.

00:25:56--> 00:26:02

You know what he said to me? He said to me, a piece of this life of dunya fell out of your hand dunya

00:26:05--> 00:26:08

fell inside the grave. So you went to get it and retrieve it.

00:26:09--> 00:26:13

So the question is, the day you fall inside your brain

00:26:15--> 00:26:15

will

00:26:16--> 00:26:19

be there for you was doing a good job of

00:26:21--> 00:26:34

pulling out of the brain? The answer is no. And that might be to the profit, that when the some of the item dominance, three things following three things of this life following his family,

00:26:35--> 00:26:36

as

00:26:37--> 00:26:38

well as his wealth,

00:26:40--> 00:26:43

his cars that he bought his children, right,

00:26:44--> 00:26:45

his wealth,

00:26:47--> 00:26:49

and his deeds will follow him

00:26:50--> 00:26:54

to go back and leave him behind and what will stay with him.

00:26:55--> 00:27:04

His family, and his wealth will leave him behind and go back. And his deeds that he did, whether it be good or bad will stay with him.

00:27:06--> 00:27:08

So what should we invest in brothers and sisters?

00:27:09--> 00:27:10

These

00:27:11--> 00:27:20

are family, friends and wealth that will leave behind what should we invest in? If we really care about your own good,

00:27:22--> 00:27:24

we'll be there to pull it out.

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

And then I remember the first

00:27:32--> 00:27:34

one, my only argument is that

00:27:37--> 00:27:42

his wealth is not going to avail them because wealth is not going to help him or benefits him the day he falls

00:27:44--> 00:27:57

over the word Roman. And he said to you be aware of a day like this, when a book was dying, a day will come where he will be laying like this, like me prepare for that day.

00:27:58--> 00:28:01

And that's why the sisters a believer must

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

must engage in what we know as

00:28:07--> 00:28:09

self evaluation.

00:28:11--> 00:28:18

Before you are evaluated, and before your reckoning begins in the grave, or the year after.

00:28:20--> 00:28:33

Before someone calls into an account, you need to see an accountant does bookkeeping and a smart person. You know, we know that people who are financially responsible are those people

00:28:35--> 00:28:43

who have good management. They look at their income and they look at their expenses and they and they manage their wealth property.

00:28:44--> 00:28:48

And successful people. That's what they do. Likewise, brothers sisters have

00:28:51--> 00:28:54

indicated that a believer is intelligent and smart.

00:28:56--> 00:29:03

And another heading he says the ending intelligent one is the one that concrete self

00:29:04--> 00:29:06

and works for Best wishes after death.

00:29:08--> 00:29:11

And does not wait until the last minute. And then he said

00:29:13--> 00:29:19

Take me back. He doesn't wait until he is diagnosed with a deadly disease and then start saying oh, I need to catch up.

00:29:21--> 00:29:25

He doesn't wait until he's crippled and cannot do anything that says you know.

00:29:28--> 00:29:34

He doesn't wait until people give up on him and he says, Oh yeah, now I'm ready to don't even know.

00:29:35--> 00:29:36

He doesn't know.

00:29:37--> 00:29:39

And that's why the scholars

00:29:40--> 00:29:59

talks about this process of evaluating yourself and your deeds and your actions. One of them said a believer must do this every day. At night. Think about what you have done during the day. What you have said during the day, what you have spent during the day

00:30:01--> 00:30:07

And then see whether it was worth it or not. Did it get you? Was it First of all, was it for the sake of Allah

00:30:09--> 00:30:20

or not? Secondly, was it done properly or not was pleasing to Allah because your intention might be good, but the way you go about doing something may be bad or unacceptable.

00:30:22--> 00:30:23

So you have to check.

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

You have to do this checkup every day.

00:30:30--> 00:30:48

In the normal what the law says that if night comes, do not consider the next day and during the day do not consider the night what he meant was not he didn't say don't plan for you for your budget for your future note what he was saying is don't count

00:30:49--> 00:30:51

it unsafe until the last

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

minute until then.

00:30:54--> 00:30:55

Do not count.

00:30:56--> 00:31:04

Don't count on the night during the day and don't count on the day. time during the night don't because we don't have

00:31:06--> 00:31:13

you don't have access to it. You don't know what it so take advantage of this moment that you have. And we can almost paddle into it.

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

asked a lot

00:31:17--> 00:31:21

Wait wait

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

wait a

00:39:09--> 00:39:10

minute. Wait a

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

minute

00:39:13--> 00:39:14

when we

00:39:16--> 00:39:17

may get to

00:39:18--> 00:39:19

the

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

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

line

00:39:33--> 00:39:34

call in an older

00:39:35--> 00:39:36

woman who has

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

been upset.

00:39:44--> 00:39:45

Why?

00:39:49--> 00:39:49

What is

00:39:50--> 00:39:51

a summer

00:39:55--> 00:39:56

we will support

00:39:57--> 00:39:58

the hula

00:40:02--> 00:40:03

What is

00:40:05--> 00:40:06

machine learning?

00:40:30--> 00:40:31

My dear brothers,

00:40:33--> 00:40:43

please get let's move forward from the gaps and try to the show starting from next week to fill in the right side, your right side by side first

00:40:45--> 00:40:48

and allow people to walk in and clear the

00:40:49--> 00:40:52

the entrance area. So please move forward fill in all the gaps.

00:40:56--> 00:41:02

So my wife requests also from the brothers outside to filter them. So the first before we

00:41:03--> 00:41:05

we use that extension

00:41:06--> 00:41:07

to the sisters.

00:41:10--> 00:41:16

A very interesting experience that I had in my recent trip.

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

When we can do

00:41:21--> 00:41:23

prompted me to think

00:41:24--> 00:41:26

about today's topic.

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

I went with a group of brothers to the buffet, the buffet is a graveyard. Note that some people agenda to buffet

00:41:42--> 00:41:43

besides the monster.

00:41:45--> 00:41:49

That's where many of the companions of the Prophet peace be upon him.

00:41:50--> 00:41:54

According to some reports, about 10,000 are buried.

00:41:55--> 00:42:03

And anytime I go to Medina, one of my favorite activities is Pastor Phil, your prayer, there's a barrier. So I'd like to go.

00:42:04--> 00:42:09

And very often I take in someone wanted me just to go and say to them,

00:42:11--> 00:42:16

to the believers who are buried there, and at the same time, participate in the janazah.

00:42:17--> 00:42:19

Because anyone that follows the janazah

00:42:20--> 00:42:24

and stayed with it, it feels very the promise of a worldwide

00:42:25--> 00:42:26

will go home with

00:42:30--> 00:42:35

two kids. And he said each one they said what is what is a PLR

00:42:36--> 00:42:45

how big or how heavy or how much it is, of good deeds, the promise of love. And the payoff is as big as the amount of

00:42:47--> 00:42:48

matter

00:42:50--> 00:43:09

the amount of good deeds, that's how much you get. And if a person prays demands only the end does not participate in the burial will get only one share. So two shares, if you pray the mother and father, the developer, the funeral until the bunnies bear, and one share if you only pray.

00:43:10--> 00:43:14

So we pray every almost after every salon there is

00:43:15--> 00:43:21

there is the journalism and maternity which is a good reminder. Because we always think to yourself,

00:43:24--> 00:43:27

would I get this this privilege?

00:43:28--> 00:43:33

You know, would there come a time where it will be me that people are praying for it.

00:43:35--> 00:43:38

So it's a good reminder. And you pray every prayer

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

with a reminder that this may be your last prayer.

00:43:45--> 00:43:46

And there are people who went there

00:43:48--> 00:43:50

and they're farmers to go there for two weeks and then come back.

00:43:54--> 00:43:57

And we hope that they were fortunate to be buried or to die and to be buried

00:43:59--> 00:44:00

in the polylines.

00:44:01--> 00:44:02

So we went

00:44:03--> 00:44:15

and then as we went there, I told the brothers maybe it will be a good idea for us to walk around the grave, the graves and reflect and think

00:44:17--> 00:44:27

about our health. You see, Stephen Covey wrote a book called that many people are familiar with called Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.

00:44:29--> 00:44:34

And he talks about the habits and the qualities that you have to be successful in life.

00:44:36--> 00:44:40

Number two brothers and sisters, is begin with the end in mind.

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

begin with the end in mind.

00:44:45--> 00:44:59

And indeed, if you want to be successful in this life, you have to keep the end in mind. And brothers and sisters. Our end is not the degree or the promotion.

00:45:00--> 00:45:17

The money, or the big huge house, or mansion that we may be living in, you know, our end is that great and this life, our home is the queen, that little hole that you won't even choose or pick, you will be lower there. And you will be

00:45:18--> 00:45:19

that's the end.

00:45:20--> 00:45:22

And that's why the

00:45:29--> 00:45:32

Muslim graded Parliament municipal water, it was set up

00:45:34--> 00:45:35

for

00:45:37--> 00:45:42

the problems that I had previous department that I previously

00:45:44--> 00:45:52

had forbidden from visiting the grace, because there was a chance that they might engage in any practice that was unassigned.

00:45:54--> 00:46:01

They just accepted Islam they were, they came back from a pagan background. So the policy seven did not want them to have anything to do with.

00:46:02--> 00:46:17

So for years, and then later, the prophet said to them, now, I tell you to go and visit the greys, because they're a good reminder of the hereafter. They remind you of your end, they help you refocus,

00:46:18--> 00:46:21

and concentrate on what is important.

00:46:22--> 00:46:24

They make you realize what life is all about.

00:46:26--> 00:47:13

And in the process of Obama, in his own practice is upon us to go and visit the graves. And he used to go and offer his readings, to those who passed away and pray for them. And in the greetings, because some people sometimes they don't like this issue that grief and death, we don't even like to talk about it the reality is a reality that that nobody denies. You don't have to be a Muslim, you don't have to be a believer, you don't have to everybody agrees everybody believes everybody knows that one day, they shall die. But people like to put off even the the thought of it, they don't like to think about it is scary, it ruins the fun. But this is reality. And you will be fooling yourself.

00:47:13--> 00:47:17

And I'll be fooling you if we don't talk about this, and if we don't prepare ourselves for it.

00:47:20--> 00:47:21

So we

00:47:22--> 00:47:24

used to go and you pray for

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

your

00:47:29--> 00:47:32

peace be upon you, or developers of the grace.

00:47:34--> 00:47:39

May Allah forgive you forgive our sins and your sins. And to Salah phenomena.

00:47:41--> 00:47:45

You are ahead of us. And we will catch up again. This is a reality.

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

So we went

00:47:49--> 00:47:53

and I found a grave that was open. There are many of them that use legal

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

terms.

00:47:57--> 00:48:00

So I just stood there and I started taking a good look

00:48:02--> 00:48:07

at the green, and I sat down. I was trying to reflect and think.

00:48:09--> 00:48:12

And then and then it got very intense.

00:48:14--> 00:48:20

So I just got up and I was about to leave with a little device that I had in my pocket, felt

00:48:23--> 00:48:25

it felt that some degree.

00:48:26--> 00:48:29

I was terrified. Now I have to go

00:48:30--> 00:48:32

get down again.

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

And somehow

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

I had

00:48:38--> 00:48:47

in mind for a while just to see how it could have been done to agree. But it was in the process of burying someone. But this time I'm going down.

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

I don't know if I'm going to come up or not.

00:48:51--> 00:49:00

So I jumped. And I picked that little device put in my pocket and I was about to jump up. I tried to jump up and I felt inside again. I couldn't I slipped.

00:49:02--> 00:49:07

And that was a very good thing. Because I took a moment right there and I said I think

00:49:08--> 00:49:10

a day will come where you're not going to make

00:49:12--> 00:49:16

a day will come where you go, you're going to be lowered and the great and

00:49:20--> 00:49:22

then I just I managed to get out.

00:49:23--> 00:49:28

I was shocked. I was in a state of shock for hours when one of the brothers came to me.

00:49:31--> 00:49:34

And he said, You have to tell me what happened to you.

00:49:35--> 00:49:38

Because he disappeared. We saw him and then he disappeared.

00:49:39--> 00:49:40

And then he popped out again.

00:49:42--> 00:49:44

And then now you're quiet. What happened?

00:49:45--> 00:49:46

And I shared with him

00:49:48--> 00:49:54

this little story that happened to me. And he made a very interesting comment, which I will share with him.

00:49:56--> 00:49:58

And then he said you have to share this with people

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

You know what he said to me? He said to me, a piece of this life of dunya fell out of your hand dunya

00:50:08--> 00:50:11

fell into the grave, so you went to get it and retrieve it.

00:50:13--> 00:50:17

So the question is, the day you fall inside your brain

00:50:18--> 00:50:23

will do him be there for you was doing a good job of

00:50:25--> 00:50:38

pulling out of the brain? The answer is no. And that you might have the property that when the some of the item dies, three things following three things that have this life, follow his family,

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

as a woman and his wealth,

00:50:44--> 00:50:47

his cars that he bought his children, right,

00:50:48--> 00:50:49

his wealth,

00:50:51--> 00:50:53

and his deeds, will follow him

00:50:54--> 00:50:57

to go back and leave him behind and what will stay with him,

00:50:58--> 00:51:08

his family, and his wealth, will leave him behind and go back. And his deeds that he did, whether it be good or bad will stay with him.

00:51:10--> 00:51:12

So what should we invest in brothers and sisters?

00:51:13--> 00:51:14

These

00:51:15--> 00:51:24

are family, friends, and ones that would have to leave behind? What should we invest in? If we really care about your own? Good,

00:51:26--> 00:51:28

we'll be there to pull you out.

00:51:30--> 00:51:31

And then I remember the first

00:51:36--> 00:51:36

one

00:51:41--> 00:51:46

is when's this going to available as well, there's not going to help them or benefits him, the day he falls

00:51:48--> 00:51:49

over the world?

00:51:50--> 00:52:01

Do you be aware of a day like this when a book was dying? A day would come where you will be laying like this, like me, prepare for that day.

00:52:02--> 00:52:05

And that's why my sister's a believer must

00:52:06--> 00:52:09

must engaged in what we know as

00:52:11--> 00:52:12

self evaluation.

00:52:15--> 00:52:22

Before you are evaluated, and before your reckoning begins in the grave, or the year after.

00:52:24--> 00:52:37

Before someone calls into an account, you need to see an accountant does bookkeeping and a smart person. You know, we know that people who are financially responsible are those people

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

who have good management. They look at their headphone, and they look at their expenses, and they and they manage their wealth properly.

00:52:48--> 00:52:53

And successful people that's what they do. Likewise, brothers sisters a problem some

00:52:55--> 00:52:58

indication that a believer is intelligent and smart.

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

And another thing he says the ending intelligent one is the one that concrete self.

00:53:08--> 00:53:10

And works for God wishes after death.

00:53:12--> 00:53:15

And does not wait until the last minute. And then he says

00:53:16--> 00:53:23

take me back. He doesn't wait until he is diagnosed with a deadly disease and then succeeding or waiting to catch up.

00:53:24--> 00:53:28

He doesn't wait until he's crippled and cannot do anything that says

00:53:32--> 00:53:38

he doesn't wait until people give up on him. And he says, Oh yeah, now I'm ready to don't even know.

00:53:39--> 00:53:40

He doesn't know.

00:53:41--> 00:53:43

And that's why the scholars

00:53:44--> 00:54:03

talks about this process of evaluating yourself and your deeds and your actions. One of them said a believer must do this every day. At night. Think about what you have done during the day. What you have said during the day, what you have spent during the day

00:54:05--> 00:54:11

and then see whether it was worth it or not. Did it get you? Was it First of all, was it for the sake of Allah

00:54:13--> 00:54:24

or not? Secondly, was it done properly or not was pleasing to Allah? Because your intention might be good, but the way you go about doing something may be bad or unacceptable.

00:54:25--> 00:54:27

So you have to check.

00:54:28--> 00:54:31

You have to do this checkup every day.

00:54:33--> 00:54:52

In the normal what the law says that if night comes do not consider the next day and during the day do not consider the night. What he meant was not he didn't say don't plan for your for your for your future note when he was saying is don't count

00:54:53--> 00:54:58

it unsafe until there is no one way to live with that. Do not count

00:55:00--> 00:55:07

Don't count on the night during the day and don't count on the day time during the night don't because we don't have

00:55:09--> 00:55:17

you don't have access to it, you don't know what it so take advantage of this moment that you have and we paddle into it.

00:55:19--> 00:55:20

And as the lawyers have

00:55:21--> 00:55:24

to make their own schools to do the right thing in the proper fashion

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

in a way that

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

when time is

00:55:36--> 00:55:37

provided to the court

00:55:46--> 00:55:47

to part

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

two, the

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

car

00:56:15--> 00:56:15

and gentlemen

00:56:22--> 00:56:24

enjoy you. Law

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

once

00:56:29--> 00:56:30

again

00:56:38--> 00:56:39

he tell you to

00:56:44--> 00:56:45

come

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

along

00:56:49--> 00:56:51

swell up inside
