Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. was built out of Mara fame and hamdulillah salatu salam ala Rasulillah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we are you we we are back at Hamdulillah. Together we reunited once more in Hong Kong city Alhamdulillah Brahmin and these are the way Salam Alaikum we have just unplugged having done this by the way the city in which we met first time first Subhan I ever have I think 15 years ago yes it me. Yes. So it was 15 years ago and we the three of us met together, brother while Ibrahim
and Chef Dr. Mohamed Salah myself we met together
for the first time in Hong Kong and now we in the Quran Allah.
Allah brought us back you know, Masha is the first event titled at the peak organized by serving slam team after COVID-19 The first event of the COVID hamdulillah more than three years ago, I believe that everything was sold out completely there are no places left. Although there are so many people asking and what I love most about the event this year besides the fact that I can't allow get to meet once again and visit the Muslim community here the brothers who miss them so much the title of the
healing the hearts send amazing Pytel and each topic, masha Allah is going to be very, very beneficial. I mean, throughout my journey a handler I've been thinking about not only my topics use topics and hamdulillah sha Allah, if you can tell us a little bit about you. It's actually it's actually a very, very beautiful topic you know, healing the hearts from the Quran, the Sunnah, the lessons, the real life situation scenarios, one by one and so on. So like from the Quran, the verses that Allah Almighty has revealed, that give men such hope such goodness such teachings that will actually heal the heart Yeah, you are not going to come over to mirabito more Shiva on Lima fifth
story. Now oh people.
Indeed a reminder has been sent to you by your Lord and cure for that which is within the chest. So there is cure in those verses SubhanAllah. And the reason is, a lot of people have been through struggles, people lost lives, meaning people lost family members and friends and so on. And life is a struggle in and there's a lot of uncertainty. You see the globe there has been earthquakes May Allah grant them ease they've been floods they've been there's been unrest poverty, poverty, warfare, so much more that's happening. And we is man supposed to be people say, well, Allah is so merciful. So why is this happening? So we need to answer those questions shall true and you gotta
keep in mind that tests and trials are inevitable. Yes. Whether you're a believer or an unbeliever, yes. You know, Allah says in the Quran a
little bit own Fe M one. Lm for SQL mallotus, Mt namun Alladhina. Otto Kitab among Kobelco mominul, Edina Asako Adam Kathira were in the hospital what a double for in a very common asmall more that is.
I believe it is verse number 186 Chapter number three sort of early I'm Ron. So Allah Almighty stated the fact that there's some trials are inevitable and being a believer you're subject to be tested more than you know the non believers and those who are not
those who are righteous are being exposed to the sun trials more in order to be purified and all the reserve status and ranks before Allah subhanaw taala so Han Allah Subhan Allah I'm really looking forward to the event

as part of like, the flight from Perth to Philippines I was going on Philippine Airlines got canceled. I got canceled. We sat in the in the airplane for five hours and then they told us sorry, we can take off there was some technical issues. So we have to close yes and every every trip of ours we have to have something very weird. Knowing knowing check while he must have said 105 hours okay, yeah, late six hours. My wife, on the other hand was fighting with everybody to get on the next flight. And the next flight was on Thursday.
