May Allah subhanho wa Taala help, but it all depends on how you look at it. Some people they say, Sorry, sir, we'd like to sit you What? Because I'm a Muslim, what do you think that's not the right way to react? Go back to that hadith of eyeshadow, the Aloha,

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

Island, relax, take it easy. Think about it, it's your chance your opportunity, Allah wanted it that way, they're going to hold you here for 12 hours, it's going to be your opportunity. Once I had a really big problem, okay, without getting into details not too long ago. So I walked through and they told me Listen, sir x, y and Zed, meaning they they read out whatever they had to read out to me, and they told me what was to happen. And I was so calm, it was with an airline. And I was so calm, and I was relaxed. And I looked at all these sisters who were there Subhanallah, my sisters in humanity.

00:01:41--> 00:02:16

And guess what I didn't I was just Hello, how are you? What's happening guys? I went back the next day and the same thing happened and I was just okay, no, that's fine. It's okay. Look, we're gonna try It's not your fault will love him. I hope and I pray that the mark that was left was actually a mark for Islam and the Muslims to say that there are people who have proper character and conduct I'm very far from perfection, nowhere near them.
