Your brothers and sisters in Islam net from Norway are establishing a masjid a Dawa Center. This center this masjid, this educational institution will act like a beacon of light, calling the Muslims in Norway back to the essence of the slum. So give generously and Allah azza wa jal
do want to ask you one final question and you can answer each other individually because it's how I like to end all my podcasts. How would you like to be remembered?
To start with, and I will start with you.
Take your time because we can edit this out. Okay. Now I want you to actually think about this quite a lot to be honest. Because there is a there is a prophetic saying, when a Prophet Muhammad said, Qatar I'm looking at the limits are less than all of the the deeds of human being is cut except for three things. I haven't on solid hand yet. Well, on Salah Hanga Allah, a child who is a righteous child that will make supplication for them sadaqa jariya a continual charity, and I'll never found your entire hobby, a beneficial knowledge that people will benefit from. Now what I want to do before I die, is I want to have something left behind for the people that they will benefit from.
It's not about how I want to be remembered. It's about what I'm going to leave behind will be used useful. There's a beautiful verse in the Quran. Yeah, it's in chapter 13. And sort of rod
where she goes like the part of the verses like this, M Mazeppa. Five Habu Java. As for the foam of the sea, it just evaporates. Where MMA and foulness VM course will fill out. As for that which benefits the people it stays on the earth. Like if you think about all the inventions of humankind, necessity is the mother of all invention. Most of the inventions that we're using now, I've actually been created or invented in the war period, because you need to have like a phone you need to have this year to have that.
So these things because people were just they were obsessed with creating things of use. I actually heard Kanye West saying this in a recent interview. He was he I don't want to be remembered he was asked same question because I don't want to be remembered the person who done the the, the lampposts was not remembered, this one that wasn't wasn't remembered. But what they have in place is used. So for me, it's not necessarily about me being remembered as much as it is leaving something of use for people to use, because in my opinion, when I'm dead, three things will continue my progeny. We talked about propagating your genes in human progeny. So I want to teach my children so that they
can continually pray for me and remember me and so on. Number two is a continual charity, which means it's not a charity that ceases. So for example, water well, or school or something like that. It's something that when I'm dead, because a statue is not going to speak to Namaste, people want to be remembered in the form of a statue or something like that. No, such is not going to be a school is going to produce people who are going to speak generally say so. I want to have something like that continual that I started this up, you know, if I say and I continue to get into reward for that after I'm dead. And thirdly, and I will say most importantly, I want to have something that I've
left behind that people will continually use say reference 100 years 200 years 300 years off my someone's gonna be calling you one day man.
