so we need to make sure we treated
within the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala people
and people who
run by a certain group of people might just be the trustees or be the guardians of the masjid. But that doesn't mean that we should abuse in.
The same applies to the carpets and so on. Sometimes when people are dirty, and they belong to the carpets leaving marks and I've seen this happening, we need to make sure our feet that we need to make sure we get them washed and we need to make sure that we keep the facility

and important thing
that one of the biggest issue in our time is the mobile phone.
If you know how to use the application of the profiling and so on, you can actually put your phone
you can actually set the profile to come on from time to time so while the machine is actually on silent

there's a different culture there. And one of the things
that I found
to be an exceptional
situation I found the

You have 500,000 and you're probably
a lot of people but the personal
the condition of people who change their own conditions
should not justify it. You know.
People need the phone sometimes in order to other family members.
need to know how to use it and the people who do not know maybe they're not fortunate enough to
be talking to somebody on the phone
going to reduce the
cost because I remember
to prove to a person which is worse because now there are two voices and the entire discussion and to get on the phone.
When you're speaking to someone next to you and speaking on the phone.
We tend to look at the mobile phone
possibly because they speak a little bit louder.
To the picture because when you can speak to them on the phone the iPhone still hasn't come back. You can look down on the other side that comes up.
They are speaking to a family member that is not with them. And you know the you know sort of
kind of thing and I think
I'm making this stuff and I'd like to do it when you're on the phone. And you know you put your hands free on and off and the person at home kind of feels that they are I don't know if that can be done I don't know.
Even happens to all people and
a weakness and lack of understanding. People come to me for
the weakness of our own understanding because of that

It'll become more of a show.
we should concentrate properly.
Far beyond that,
from the the, the internet, which is
off, and they actually talk about it, and
we showed them how quickly we computed the
things that are happening each of us and that's why I say
we first need to look at ourselves
counting backwards, you have to look at what we're doing and we have to correct ourselves the use of mobile phones is something
I've come across people
that want to choose,
understand why they do this.
You can call it
a discussion with regards the attitude that people have about the organization
And we can't just use it as if it's for
the government or the taxpayers money is
the taxpayers money, and we can have it for days and people just
content and we shouldn't have that attitude when it comes to using our facilities in the masjid.
Go back to the discussion around progression.

As you pointed out to me, at home, we spend a lot of
at these facilities
to make to make sense out amongst themselves.
Completely I think my brother says

And it's really bad. And on top of that, the wastage.
And you shouldn't you should
I think it would actually reduce the presence of
carefully selected words because we don't have to condemn anyone but at the same time, the
usage of these facilities that we've had
there's so many things that are not similar
progression, but we were talking about
If you still need to move,
you need to make

The nature of people

On a framework I come

for money but

In the form of rejection from a lot
