experience

00:16:44--> 00:16:45

and to live

00:16:47--> 00:16:53

His obedience because the act of obedience to Allah subhanaw taala and worship

00:16:55--> 00:16:56

has a life of its own

00:16:59--> 00:17:06

I'm not sure if everyone is fitting into I know people my shallot excited greeting each other greeting people that they

00:17:08--> 00:17:11

that just came back from Umrah

00:17:12--> 00:17:14

that four day Mashallah.

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

So,

00:17:18--> 00:17:20

again, I was saying that

00:17:21--> 00:17:29

a life of worship, a life of a bad life of obedience, or worship, rather, has a life of its own.

00:17:33--> 00:17:36

And it's a life unlike any other life.

00:17:37--> 00:17:40

A life that is dedicated for the worship of Allah subhanaw taala

00:17:42--> 00:17:46

it's a life that where not only the body but also

00:17:47--> 00:17:50

the soul lives fulfilled.

00:17:52--> 00:17:58

So tonight, I was supposed to share with you some reflections from the recent Umrah trip

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

of a group of young

00:18:04--> 00:18:08

mashallah community members primarily

00:18:10--> 00:18:16

members and students and former students of Pleasantview school which is our local school here

00:18:19--> 00:18:24

so many of them went for the first time for Umrah

00:18:26--> 00:18:32

I was given the task and the honor to be leading them and guiding them and serving them

00:18:34--> 00:18:44

and I have I must say this agenda out of all that I'm going to trips that I was part of whether organizing leading or participating in

00:18:46--> 00:18:47

this by far

00:18:51--> 00:18:58

is one of the most if not the most powerful our trip ever joined

00:19:00--> 00:19:01

Hmm.

00:19:02--> 00:19:06

Now that caveat hasn't hasn't fear has no say you know.

00:19:09--> 00:19:22

And until now, I don't know how, how it started, how it went, how it ended. But I noticed how Allah Allah azza wa jal bless this journey and it was one of the smoothest

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

right.

00:19:26--> 00:19:29

Most extraordinary trips that I made

00:19:30--> 00:19:31

hamdulillah

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

Assam Hala it reminded me

00:19:37--> 00:19:48

of because we had to actually talk about it. It reminded me of how the Sahaba laguan Allah Allah him intended to go with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:19:49--> 00:19:51

to perform a camera

00:19:54--> 00:19:58

and on their way to perform that camera

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

They were prevented from going now I want you just to listen to this might be so there's a habit of going Allah Allah him the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam promised them that they will do Umrah.

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

Right, the VA Salam had a dream about it and so they were supposed to do it all.

00:20:19--> 00:20:25

The province of Salem promised him and he told me that he saw a dream and the dream of, of the prophets is what

00:20:27--> 00:20:35

is why he from Allah subhanaw taala said revelation from Allah azza wa jal, so on their way, who blocks them perish.

00:20:36--> 00:20:54

The Quran says, No, Mohammed will not enter Mecca, you're not coming if you come this will consider this to be an act of war. Everyone else in Arabia, other than Prophet Muhammad in his community are allowed to come to Mecca. Nobody. Nobody dares to stop someone from coming to America.

00:20:56--> 00:21:21

The only people who are prevented from it were the Muslims. And they blocked him and they said no, we're going to consider this an act of war. And we're going to fight the price and sell them did not come to fight. He came to worship Allah somehow the data also have a came in there and haram. You know, they were saying Allah bacon Lahoma bake, right? The only thing that they had was just their swords and very, like they were not heavily

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

armed.

00:21:24--> 00:21:28

So so they blocked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Sahaba

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

and the famous, you know, event known as Davia, in a place called Davia, not too far away from Mecca,

00:21:38--> 00:21:54

and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and has started basically negotiating with Polish. You're allowing everyone to make Umbra This is the house of Allah doesn't belong to you and we're here just we want to worship and leave. We're not here to act or take over or to

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

they said no,

00:21:57--> 00:22:05

we're not gonna allow the Arabs to say that Mohammed came and he entered Mecca as he wished without Cora Qureshi giving

00:22:06--> 00:22:07

any

00:22:08--> 00:22:12

so the negotiation started between the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and the college

00:22:14--> 00:22:48

and as part of it by the way, the prophets of Allah they said letter sent to earth madam and I found to negotiate on behalf of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when Earth man entered Mecca, and because he had, you know, very good strong relations. And because he belonged to one of the most celebrated and powerful clans, I found out the Allahu Anhu was hosted and the McCanns insisted to host him for three days and not let you know, it would be an insult if he doesn't accept there. And then while he's with them, and they were hosting him, they offered him to do throw off

00:22:50--> 00:22:55

that if you want to access the Kaaba is right in front of him. And Earth metal the Allah Han who declined.

00:22:58--> 00:23:00

setting a good example why did Earth man decline?

00:23:02--> 00:23:04

No, no way I will do it off.

00:23:05--> 00:23:07

Before the prophets Allah Allah and listen.

00:23:08--> 00:23:11

I'm just here as one of his followers.

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

Not until the prophesy Selim comes and

00:23:16--> 00:23:20

right approaches a black stone and begins who has thought that I would do it off.

00:23:22--> 00:23:33

In the meanwhile, rumors start started to spread in the camp of the prophets, Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam and the Muslims. That Earth man was held against his will. And he's most likely to be what?

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

executed.

00:23:38--> 00:23:42

And that's when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam summoned the sahaba.

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

Right.

00:23:49--> 00:23:51

And he said, I am going to go

00:23:53--> 00:24:07

either rescue Earth man, or if he is indeed killed, then we eventually his his death. Thus it is an act of war. We're going to fight them. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took pledge of allegiance from

00:24:08--> 00:24:15

from all the Sahaba in the famous again, incident or event known as Bae I totaled one

00:24:16--> 00:24:36

it was called by I totaled one because Allah azza wa jal said that he had bestowed His little one His pleasure he was pleased with Hava under the tree who came under that famous three were the process for them was sitting and also how became one after another, shaking hands with the process and then giving their pledge to

00:24:37--> 00:24:39

to fight to death.

00:24:40--> 00:24:42

Follow him so a lot listen.

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

Alright.

00:24:44--> 00:24:46

And that's where Allah says Allah Do you know where

00:24:48--> 00:24:49

you buy your own data show? You're

00:24:51--> 00:24:53

right in the Latina go buy your own, okay.

00:24:54--> 00:24:55

All right. In NEMA

00:24:57--> 00:25:00

in America by own Allah, that their play

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

Just to Allah subhanaw taala. And the promise is that we shook hands with everyone until he was through with all of them. And then at the end he said what?

00:25:09--> 00:25:22

This is on behalf of Earth man, he represented the Earth man. He took proxy for Earth man. And he pledged on behalf of Earth man to himself, right.

00:25:23--> 00:25:45

To to go to fight to that. Eventually us man was released, obviously, and that didn't happen. There was no fight and the Metcons had what is known as Sol Hill per day via that famous treaty or truce that took place took place right there. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:25:47--> 00:25:53

accepted the terms of soil today via the Treaty of today via or oral today BIA

00:25:54--> 00:26:08

and the Sahaba were told that they would have to one of the conditions right or the clauses was that the prophesy Selim and the Sahaba would go back to Medina without performing what

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

I'm gonna

00:26:11--> 00:26:15

not this year. Next year you come and perform Umrah this year normal.

00:26:17--> 00:26:17

You go back

00:26:18--> 00:26:40

and the prophets of Allah Allah recently accepted this. And some of us are have our very furious, they said but messenger of Allah you promised us, you promise us and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yes. And I still stand by my promise. They said, but you told us that we're going to perform Umrah. He said, Did I tell you that you're going to perform Umrah this year?

00:26:42--> 00:26:49

And the province of Salem was not playing a game with them. It was indeed Allah assured them in the dream that they're going to perform Umrah.

00:26:50--> 00:26:51

Right. So

00:26:53--> 00:27:01

right now, the one of the conditions was that they're going to come next year. So you're going to perform Umrah next year. It's not going to happen this year.

00:27:03--> 00:27:08

And in that there was a big shout out for everyone that accepted that they will What?

00:27:14--> 00:27:16

No, they will live until next year.

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

Whereas if the province has said and said you're going to perform this, we are going to perform Umrah and he went to perform Umrah and it didn't happen now.

00:27:26--> 00:27:30

And then you're told that it's going to be next year. That means you're what

00:27:31--> 00:27:33

you said you for a whole year you're

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

right.

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

By.

00:27:38--> 00:27:46

So he said I didn't tell you, you know, did I say anything about it being happening this year? They said no, he said them Hala, you will perform them.

00:27:47--> 00:27:54

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam order commanded them to shave their heads and to slaughter their sacrifices.

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

And

00:27:57--> 00:28:14

normally, usually the Sahaba were very quick to respond to any command from from the Prophet sallallaahu send them any command or order from the prophet or Allah this will have or very quick to respond to it this time because they were so frustrated and they thought maybe they will be

00:28:15--> 00:28:26

the problem. Some may change his mind or maybe Allah will reveal something that will you know, undo this as a habit. We're not as excited about it. Or they were not as

00:28:27--> 00:28:41

as quick to respond. So no one moved, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was really saddened by that. And he was concerned and he was worried.

00:28:43--> 00:28:44

And he was afraid for them.

00:28:46--> 00:28:48

So he went to his tent,

00:28:49--> 00:29:08

where almost all the Allahu anha was in the province has hidden them was, you know, visibly very disturbed by that. And almost selama asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if everything is okay. And he said to her, I told people to

00:29:09--> 00:29:15

to shave their heads and to slaughter their animals. And they didn't respond.

00:29:17--> 00:29:26

She said Yeah, Rasul Allah, if I may, and she she offered the prophesies helluva beautiful advice, she said, obviously, psychologically and emotionally they're not

00:29:27--> 00:29:48

they're in a very bad place. He said message of Allah don't talk to them go out. Right. And call for your for the person that used to cut or shave the prophesy said in his head, ask for your barber to shave your head and, and slaughter your animals yourself and see what happens.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

Fella MATCOM Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Messenger of Allah exited everybody's looking at him. He went and he demonstrated that he actually did it himself. He had his head

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

shave and his animals slaughtered what happened?

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

Everybody got I'm going to start a holiday notes over that. Everybody got up. There were so they said that they were so frustrated caddy up to the home Baba. They were so frustrated and we're telling each other can we hear you loud shave your head and they were like so, so harsh on each other, you know, because they were so frustrated. And indeed, the following year, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came back in what was known as Umrah to Allah

00:30:31--> 00:30:57

and performed umbra. And many of the rituals that we actually practice, but are some of the rituals that we practice. Now. It goes back to that genre. I wanted to color where we expose, you know, in the first throw off, we expose our shoulders, right? And then we do Ramil. Right. And, you know, all the running between the,

00:30:58--> 00:31:11

in that zone, were inside, right? Some of it go back to, to what was practiced by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions. And it became a sunnah ever since.

00:31:14--> 00:31:28

Now, this Subhanallah made me realize that, you know, I was telling, I was telling the students, one of the things that we were saying is that I had visiting the house of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:31:29--> 00:31:42

You know, this happens when ALLAH SubhanA, Allah sends you an invite, and when that invite, right, is actually extended to you and you respond to it, and Allah subhanaw taala facilitates everything.

00:31:43--> 00:32:18

It's not your power. It's not your money. It's not your package. It's not the company that you choose, is none of these things now that the connections that you have, it's all an invite from Allah subhanho wa taala. Right. And so Pamela to what are the things that happened this time and it happens with Hala last time as well when I was in Omaha? It was a sister from California that came with a group very familiar with shiatsu you know, Dr. amazulu, right. Yes, sir. So there is a sister that came and Afghan sister that came six year old for the first time in her life. She came for Umrah.

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

They landed in Jeddah she started having you know some symptoms

00:32:25--> 00:32:28

right there like okay, then they flew to Medina

00:32:30--> 00:32:40

halfway on their way to Medina and halfway Medina flight is what 35 minutes right? She was in distress. The doctor has told the the

00:32:42--> 00:32:43

pilot that he needs to

00:32:44--> 00:33:02

you know land emergency landing he's like Medina is the closest thing for Lance we're almost there. They said Okay, make sure that there are paramedics and ambulance waiting for her there because she she she was in distress. Right? One of the doctors was saying you know most likely it's

00:33:04--> 00:33:06

what do they call it massive embolism

00:33:08--> 00:33:11

right. She'll the airplane landed in Medina she passed away

00:33:16--> 00:33:17

Alright,

00:33:18--> 00:33:22

three days later she was buried in genital bouquet bouquet

00:33:27--> 00:33:30

last time last Agra to two months ago, you know,

00:33:31--> 00:33:56

gi specialist from Long Island Rahim Allah. He landed in Jeddah on his way to Medina had a massive heart attack. He was buried in whites, people respond that doesn't have and then there are people who are invited to make throw off and finish their camera and go back and come back again and again and again. Once that they have now that they have created a connection with the house of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:33:58--> 00:34:04

And there are people who are invited to come they come but something happens and they go back without performing Umrah or Hajj

00:34:05--> 00:34:09

and there are people who do not even receive an invitation whatsoever. Nothing.

00:34:13--> 00:34:32

So at the end of the day, it's an invite from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah so turn to Allah azza wa jal and ask Allah azza wa jal, not only to invite you, but to give you the strength and give you the motivation and give you the success or the to actually go and perform this very essential act of worship.

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

Number two, Amara is actually a renewal

00:34:39--> 00:34:48

and expansion of our sins. You see, you can tell now you can pick some of those young people and folks that just came from hombre you can tell from the

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

from the coffee's and from the of course that has been shaved but even the ones that didn't shave, they still have that. You know, the the the light

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

that bright, you know, brightness of, of, you know, seeing the Kaaba and performing a walk around the Kaaba and making dua. And one of the things that Subhanallah we're very touching is to see young people see the Kaaba for the first time see their reaction on their faces. See the tears flowing? See them in? Ah, right, this is what we've been facing all these years. Right. Subhanallah and so it was it was quite amazing. And then hearing the reflections later when we had sessions join such as together, hearing their reflections, right. So, so one of the amazing things that happened, was that that you feel like there is that helped them mature spiritually and emotionally. May Allah subhanaw

00:35:49--> 00:36:16

taala bless each and every single one of them. Right. Last reflection that I want to share with you is of Hala verses from the Quran and do arts, especially the ones from the Quran from the prophetic Traditions, habits, a special taste there. Yeah, if for instance, when the Imam leaves and Salah in Mecca. And then he says, Well, you the PATA Ibrahim will be your I'll handle Bella Amina. It hits you differently.

00:36:17--> 00:36:33

Right? Because Ibrahim is praying for what? For the house, he's making dua for this for this town. And it's being recited there. Or when he recites Foley Abu rob the huddle bait, let them worship the Lord of this house, and they were standing right in front of it.

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

Just

00:36:36--> 00:37:21

or they recite a verse that, you know, was just revealed right there. You know, it was revealed there, right? Especially if you're familiar with the context of the revelation, you know, this verse was revealed right there the incident happened right there it had, it impacts you differently. When you receive revelation, or when you listen and reflect and ponder upon the revelation, it impacts you differently. Right? So it is it is very critical to go there and connect. The place is important. Right? It's a sacred house. And Allah azza wa jal says when he left he, Allah Nursey Hey, duel Beatty, many sofar Elaine sebelah it's a right that Allah has upon us upon humanity,

00:37:22--> 00:37:27

right? To visit that house and to perform pilgrimage to it

00:37:28--> 00:37:52

for whoever is able to do so if you have the capability to do that. Sometimes people say oh no, I'm waiting for Hajj and waiting for Hajj. Well, you may not be have the ability to make Hajj you have the ability to make I'm gonna do it don't delay it because you don't know you may not be able to perform Hajj right sometimes people say well should I do Umrah or Hajj I said which one can you afford? I can afford Omar but if I wait maybe few years, no perform Umrah

00:37:53--> 00:37:59

go with intention Inshallah, that Allah will bless you and you will be able to inshallah to either perform Umrah and Hajj again and again shall

00:38:01--> 00:38:14

do it. Right. And doing it frequently is also an act of virtue. And the prophesy said it says Good for you. And in fact, it's actually right. It is a great way to achieve

00:38:16--> 00:38:17

financial prosperity.

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

Right.

00:38:22--> 00:38:27

Because sometimes people are concerned about that to remember it's FISA vilella Right.

00:38:30--> 00:39:13

So these are just some reflections I wanted to share with you. And then if you have any questions about the month of Ramadan, and I've never done this before, maybe except like, more than 30 years ago, to actually perform Umrah before Ramadan is just an interesting, an interesting field. You know, and I think it's a good a good prep. So especially since we you know, we cannot I have not been able to perform Umrah in Ramadan that's another another thing to perform um, Ramadan is a great virtue. And if anyone can do it, please do it. We have not been able to do it for the past 32 years. I haven't been able to do it because in the month of Ramadan, we're busy with tarawih and with our

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

community centers and all of that, and we believe that this is an obligation upon us, so we need to be here but if I if I can get a chance to go for even if it's for one day, I will do it. So if you have the opportunity to do it overall in the month of Ramadan if not this year, maybe next year inshallah you should experience that insha Allah Who to Allah with an Allah and make sure that you make dua for me shallot for my family.

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

If anyone has any questions about Ramadan

00:39:43--> 00:39:53

please feel free to ask inshallah. We're going to have a q&a session because part of this session was sort of share some reflections from the unlock trip and then open have a q&a or open discussion regarding

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

Ramadan in sha Allah Tala, is it supposed to lay man? Mashallah, Mashallah.

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

You know I have a special connection with my camera buddies mashallah I got to know him from Ghana Mashallah.

00:40:07--> 00:40:29

So if you have any questions please feel free about the month of Ramadan or fasting I just want to say one thing I don't know how many systems we have but people who have who have days that they need to make up from last Ramadan hurry up and make up these days about Allah Oh a slam slam Ramadan

00:40:30--> 00:40:44

MALDI MannKind Allah He Yom Yom means alpha whoever has few a day or two or multiple days they need to make up those days now before this Ramadan begins right? Because if you delay making up

00:40:45--> 00:40:58

the days the missed days from the previous Ramadan without any excuse then the person has to what should offer has to pay a penalty? Yeah it's a

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

no

00:41:01--> 00:41:02

fee data here

00:41:04--> 00:41:19

for we should hasten and make sure that you make up any of the mistakes from the past 101 For those who have not, who don't have anything any makeup days and did not fast during the month of Shaban MALAMI awesome fisheye but

00:41:22--> 00:41:25

you didn't fast. And now you want to fast.

00:41:26--> 00:41:27

Right?

00:41:29--> 00:41:32

Some scholars consider that to be to be mcru

00:41:33--> 00:42:10

right after the one half of the month of Ramadan, Shabana as we're approaching the month of Ramadan, fasting the last days of Shabbat are mcru the last day of Shaban known also as Yom was check the day of doubt. It could be the 30th or it could be the first of Ramadan that day unless we know as the first of Ramadan we should have fast that day. Yeah, Romo. Sol Moon Yomi. Check. Okay, well Allah, Allah Allah. So other than that they show up. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

00:42:15--> 00:42:17

Any questions about the follow up?

00:42:22--> 00:42:22

Now

00:42:27--> 00:42:30

I was hoping someone would ask that question, Zach, along halen.

00:42:31--> 00:42:35

The question is, how do we determine the beginning of the month of Ramadan?

00:42:36--> 00:42:39

Here at the Memphis Islamic Center,

00:42:40--> 00:42:52

and pretty much any center that I was affiliated with, we follow global sighting. So if there is a confirmed report of a sighting, we're talking about sighting of the moon.

00:42:54--> 00:43:37

And it doesn't have to be blind in majority, it doesn't have to be with the naked eye. If there is a confirmed reliable sighting of the moon, anywhere in the world, anywhere in the globe, right? That would be for us enough to declare the beginning of the month of Ramadan to start fasting. Same thing with eight as well or with the end of the month of Ramadan. So we follow the global citing method. And one of the organizations that we are affiliated with with regards to this religious matter is the assembly of Muslim jurists in North America known as M Jaya. So normally when Amgen makes a declaration you know we also

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

declare the beginning of the month so no yes

00:43:47--> 00:43:48

anyone else

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

has it

00:43:53--> 00:43:57

in sha Allah Allah we're going to have multiple guests Imams

00:43:58--> 00:44:06

shall will begin the month with the guests the man will end the month with the guests Imam and in between we're going to have few with realizada you want to know who it is

00:44:08--> 00:44:10

Sharla you're going to find out in three days

00:44:14--> 00:44:20

the first five days for sure. We have the first five days and the first the last five days in between as well Yes.

00:44:39--> 00:44:43

No, okay, if you if you know for sure you're going to miss a day or two from

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

fasting from the month of Ramadan. Right due to travel. Can you make up those days in advance? No. The answer is you make them up afterwards because they are not an obligation upon you until what you actually miss

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

To them, that's that's the question. And then obviously if

00:45:05--> 00:45:09

breaking your fast during travel, there is

00:45:10--> 00:45:14

a concession so you have the option to fast or not too fast.

00:45:16--> 00:45:37

You know, and if again if it's a long journey or if it's even if it's a short journey doesn't matter, you have the option not to too fast or to break your fast as Allah azza wa jal said in the verses that we just recited and it's repeated twice for mankind I mean Kuma Allah is suffering from an ngadimin Kumar Elan Oh ALLAH is suffering very determined I am Aloha.

00:45:38--> 00:45:48

Alright, so Allah subhanaw taala says that whoever is Ill not, you know, are not feeling well. And or traveling, then

00:45:50--> 00:45:51

they can make up from,

00:45:52--> 00:45:56

you know, days later and later said of this

00:45:59--> 00:46:01

if it's suffer if it's suffer, if it's a travel

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

Yeah, it does.

00:46:04--> 00:46:06

What airmiles? Danny?

00:46:07--> 00:46:15

If if it's if you Well, obviously you shouldn't say well, okay, I'm gonna go to Jackson and come back so I can break my fast.

00:46:17--> 00:46:33

We're talking about Safar seven, something that you pack for something that you travel, something that in the when people ask me what I consider to be Stefan, I say whatever is in the earth, right? In our customers, what do we consider to be suffered? Travel?

00:46:34--> 00:46:39

Right, obviously going from here to what is it called?

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

No.

00:46:43--> 00:46:57

No doubt and down. What is it called in Mississippi? South Haven, going from here to South Haven? Yeah, nobody says this is true. Yes, you're gonna cross county line, you're gonna go into another state. But come on

00:46:59--> 00:47:01

that and who says that this is travel?

00:47:02--> 00:47:31

There are people who go there every day, twice. Multiple times, right. So that's not so far. though. You're going from one state to another you're going from but when people go to Nashville, three hours Yes. Some people go and come back same day. But when people go to Nashville last suffer, that is a travel, you pack, you know. And normally any you know, you would like stay overnight there or get a get a hotel.

00:47:32--> 00:47:37

Same thing if you go to Little Rock. This is suffering. No doubt. No.

00:47:38--> 00:47:40

Yes, yes.

00:47:43--> 00:47:44

Hola,

00:47:45--> 00:47:48

Ibrahim, why do you have to ask this question?

00:47:50--> 00:47:53

Yeah, you know, this is public. This is live and you don't have

00:47:55--> 00:48:01
