How are you? Are you wasting your time on social media again, your brothers and sisters in Islam net from Norway are establishing a masjid a Dawa center. Establishing a masjid to convey the message of Islam is one of the best deeds a Muslim can do. There's a huge need for annoying, you know this and I know this. So that makes them even greater. So give generously and Allah azza wa jal give you even

00:00:33--> 00:01:19

to ask you a question. Okay, no problem. We're just doing a social experiment. Do you feel you have a meaningful life? Yes. Okay. I think I have meaning for my friends. Yes. Although I was very emphatic try to find a direction in my life that can give meaning this. Yeah, I think I do. I'm not entirely sure yet. Yeah, I think so I try to make the most of it. And I try to live a good life. Okay, and if so, what do you think the meaning is of your life? If you have to identify what exactly is the meaning is the meaning to be as happy as you can be? I think the meaning in my life is to get rich and have a nice family. Yes. Can that be enough of a reason to, for me to wake up and take a

00:01:19--> 00:01:40

* like everybody else, you know, I got no, to do the best you can do to have good people around you to get the family and just live your life. I think, trying to live and have fun, kind of just to have fun, do what you like and not like what you do, if you know what I mean. Just live my life the way I want.

00:01:41--> 00:02:24

Yeah, I think that's fine. There's no deeper meaning to it. Now, you might have known that the you know, suicide rates in this country, people that you know, and their lives have gone up. Okay. What do you think the reason for that is, maybe if you don't have a close relationship with your family, they have a very hard time with itself. And they don't have someone to talk to see that that negativity is kind of becoming bigger and bigger is just awful. There's a lot of people who don't have friends and family that are more likely to end themselves. I don't know, I feel like people take more pressure on themselves. I mean, there's there's a lot of things going on in the world. I

00:02:24--> 00:02:33

mean, social media, of course, yeah, I noticed myself, you see a lot of people you see a lot more than you did before, when you didn't have social media.

00:02:34--> 00:03:09

It's easier to feel bad. Now, I think your brain wants to get stimulated. You don't have a meaning, like you say, and, and you you get completely sucked in by this device. And there's so much content, so much to take in. If you're feeling like isolated and alone, that could certainly be an issue. And because they did not have any anything in life to live for. And it's it's extremely sad. These are good responses. I think they're very open and very honest. And I appreciate the honesty and the openness

00:03:10--> 00:03:29

about that, as you can see them thinking about these questions, which is what I found most fascinating, someone had a meaning in their life. A true meaning that they say this is the reason why I'm living. Okay. Would that help them with these, for example, negative things that causes people to end their own lives? Or would it not help them? I think it would help a little bit.

00:03:30--> 00:04:13

I think it is a big part of it. Yes. I think a lot of people are spiritual. I'll see humans are spiritual. And I think something to believe in. Everyone should have that? I think so. I think having something to believe in is very important. I think everybody needs to have some kind of sense of belonging, they think to have like an objective truth. And that's very important for people, I think you would have a good effect on most people. Because when you feel like you have a meaning it's just easier to continue with the day, if you know what I mean. Yeah, positive feelings. And really, if you have like, one concrete meaning for your life, then if you can find it, then sure, I

00:04:13--> 00:04:51

think it would help to have to get the purpose and maybe just something a little add job or maybe a friend or anything like that. So of course as Muslims, we have our own answer as to what the meaning of life is. And on this very channel, you can see many such answers to this very question. So we are in Scandinavia, establishing a mosque, and that will center the like of which has never been constructed of the history of Scandinavia before. And the reason for this is that we can disseminate the information relating to the purpose of life, which is to worship one God, Allah subhanho wa taala, the One who created the whole heavens and the whole US and everything within them.
