Or what does a nation that has no security, but all the wealth in the world? What do they have? I'd rather be in a nation that has a little bit less, but we are safe, we love each other, we look at each other, you could belong to different faiths all together. Guess what, there is a mutual respect. That's what it is. I disagree. You disagree. Let contino come when the end what a powerful first, you have your faith and I have mine SubhanAllah. The same applies among the Muslims themselves. Be careful of those who want to instill hatred in your heart. To the

You see, there was one of the Messiah who was explaining to the young students that here there is a crooked line, for example that someone has drawn, say on the blackboard, they drew a crooked line. Now the people came and they were told how do you tell the public that this is crooked? Or how do you straighten it? So each student came up with their own solution. I will do this I'll rub it off, I will bend it, I will do this and that. And ultimately, the mentor taught them look when there is a crooked line in front of you. Rather than wasting your time about declaring how crooked it is. Draw a straight line next to it and keep it moving. Keep it moving. The whole world will pass by say

00:02:57 --> 00:03:09

that's a crooked line. This is a straight line. What more do you want? What more do you want? You are productive and constructive. Rather than destroy and create that which is negative May Allah make it easy for us.
