00:00:18--> 00:00:19

Addition facilities

00:00:26--> 00:00:27

think about our discussion

00:00:30--> 00:00:30

and like I said

00:00:37--> 00:00:39

is senior to me and of course,

00:00:40--> 00:00:49

more knowledgeable he can talk from experience because he actually lived there for many years Mashallah. And he understands what the context of the discussion is

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

discussion around expansion

00:01:14--> 00:01:17

the depressing thing, the fact that

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

and the loss of spirituality and

00:01:22--> 00:01:28

people saying that modernity and progress seems to be standing in the way of spirituality

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

situation

00:01:46--> 00:01:50

the messy the middle and Michigan about

00:01:53--> 00:01:54

a GABA and

00:01:55--> 00:01:56

GABA

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

working hours and so on.

00:02:08--> 00:02:09

expansion

00:02:11--> 00:02:14

and expansion people had something to say. So, we have an expansion

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

to extend it,

00:02:27--> 00:02:30

but not much, too much of the time. In fact, you'd like to

00:02:43--> 00:02:47

know made the final decision, but what has to happen.

00:03:02--> 00:03:07

So, expansion happens after that expansion happens again and again, when people talk about

00:03:08--> 00:03:09

regional

00:03:11--> 00:03:11

regional

00:03:15--> 00:03:16

British Empire

00:03:25--> 00:03:25

and how can we

00:03:26--> 00:03:30

how can we prevent the discussion of destroying the green

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

structure architecture is

00:03:54--> 00:03:54

much more

00:04:03--> 00:04:03

effective

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

what actually

00:04:24--> 00:04:25

you have seen

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

prior to the future

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

expansion on the stage and they also had

00:04:36--> 00:04:36

an

00:04:38--> 00:04:39

empire the Ottoman Empire

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

had

00:04:59--> 00:04:59

all these people do

00:05:06--> 00:05:07

number one and number two

00:05:21--> 00:05:22

for us

00:05:23--> 00:05:24

to spacious

00:05:28--> 00:05:28

spirituality

00:05:32--> 00:05:33

much more spiritual

00:05:35--> 00:05:36

much more

00:06:12--> 00:06:13

number one

00:07:17--> 00:07:21

from all different angles Muslims cannot be

00:07:24--> 00:07:24

efficient.

00:07:28--> 00:07:29

We'd like to expand that

00:07:32--> 00:07:33

to be extended

00:07:43--> 00:07:43

as such, you

00:07:45--> 00:07:50

if we get distracted with the weakness of our spirituality and among the people

00:08:01--> 00:08:04

who are asked to make a focus I normally like to

00:08:08--> 00:08:08

come up with

00:08:10--> 00:08:10

a model now

00:08:25--> 00:08:25

which is

00:08:27--> 00:08:28

a big problem because

00:08:36--> 00:08:38

we will move to come to terms with it. We

00:08:40--> 00:08:41

don't want to go there because

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

there has to be extension

00:08:57--> 00:09:01

expansion. We feel like speaking to someone last night

00:09:10--> 00:09:11

I had to ask you a question.

00:09:32--> 00:09:32

She has

00:09:34--> 00:09:39

a whole section in the department of the government to find

00:09:43--> 00:09:44

across the globe and

00:09:46--> 00:09:48

to try and make people

00:09:54--> 00:09:55

are protecting the beam and so on.

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

Education people have an article and

00:10:06--> 00:10:08

read on the internet today

00:10:21--> 00:10:21

I remember

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

needs to be taken out because

00:10:32--> 00:10:34

for us to associate

00:11:13--> 00:11:14

of

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

extension, Africa

00:11:32--> 00:11:35

reigned supreme, almost everyone and

00:11:39--> 00:11:39

and

00:11:42--> 00:11:48

has given you an ability to bring it across eloquently and very, very understandably

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

that and

00:11:54--> 00:11:58

we will step one step one irrational,

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

irrational thoughts

00:12:27--> 00:12:30

should be trying to convey, and I don't consider myself to be

00:12:34--> 00:12:35

important

00:12:43--> 00:12:43

and

00:13:01--> 00:13:06

about etiquette of using the facilities in the masjid and of course,

00:13:09--> 00:13:09

a discussion

00:13:12--> 00:13:13

because that is

00:13:15--> 00:13:18

a big undertaking with regards to making sure that

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

ablution facilities in

00:13:24--> 00:13:25

place

00:13:27--> 00:13:30

at home or at the hotel and continuing procedures

00:13:32--> 00:13:37

in the same condition, sometimes we would have to make use of facilities

00:13:39--> 00:13:45

in southern Africa have pretty good facilities in other countries,

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

additional facilities because

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

understanding that you

00:13:55--> 00:13:56

and you can lead

00:14:00--> 00:14:04

to things and in one way and now, we've come

00:14:12--> 00:14:16

to South Africa and I met him there and he told me one of your people

00:14:19--> 00:14:21

crop up in a condition

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

according to some people,

00:14:48--> 00:14:51

regeneration has somehow extended and extended

00:14:52--> 00:14:53

and

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

considered what was done previously as very spiritual and very, very enlightening and so on.

00:15:02--> 00:15:03

Appreciate

00:15:05--> 00:15:08

that considered what was not appreciated the generation

00:15:13--> 00:15:15

and so on so we've got a

00:15:18--> 00:15:19

few as you said,

00:15:21--> 00:15:24

we stay focused and focus on our own things like

00:15:26--> 00:15:28

a skyscraper around our own

00:15:30--> 00:15:31

skyscrapers

00:15:35--> 00:15:40

important for us to know the person is to make will be at home and then to go to the most

00:15:42--> 00:15:43

powerful facility

00:15:44--> 00:15:54

to use if you know, how to use the water and so on, especially when it comes to better with MSG, but the purpose is to make at home

00:16:00--> 00:16:00

makes

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

intention of reading God's

00:16:05--> 00:16:05

word

00:16:07--> 00:16:09

and one of the conditions

00:16:15--> 00:16:21

to prepare to go to the machine and to use the facilities

00:16:22--> 00:16:23

of the machine.

00:16:27--> 00:16:30

And what have you a lot of people like to waste a lot and

00:16:34--> 00:16:37

enough to make it a place that people feel like

00:16:38--> 00:16:39

we should not be wished for.

00:16:47--> 00:16:48

a greater bit

00:16:51--> 00:16:54

adopt is not part of the secrets of Islam and the Muslim

00:16:56--> 00:17:01

need to use minimum amount of water and use the bathroom

00:17:05--> 00:17:09

we found it even better when we entered the bathroom or the

00:17:10--> 00:17:12

people will be

00:17:15--> 00:17:15

will be probably

00:17:17--> 00:17:18

next year or

00:17:21--> 00:17:24

so we need to make sure we treated

00:17:25--> 00:17:28

within the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala people

00:17:29--> 00:17:29

and people who

00:17:35--> 00:17:45

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.

00:17:47--> 00:18:01

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

00:18:04--> 00:18:07

or some of the official white paper

00:18:08--> 00:18:10

we need to use not just

00:18:14--> 00:18:16

to you sometimes I've seen people

00:18:17--> 00:18:18

so much like

00:18:24--> 00:18:34

the same applies to the bath towels and we wanted to make sure we use them properly and that we would appreciate some people like their feet.

00:18:36--> 00:18:37

And

00:18:38--> 00:18:42

absolutely, because we would like to use such a powerful

00:18:45--> 00:18:46

and important thing

00:18:49--> 00:18:52

that one of the biggest issue in our time is the mobile phone.

00:18:54--> 00:19:00

If you know how to use the application of the profiling and so on, you can actually put your phone

00:19:01--> 00:19:01

to switch

00:19:08--> 00:19:13

you can actually set the profile to come on from time to time so while the machine is actually on silent

00:19:37--> 00:19:37

and we can actually

00:19:41--> 00:19:41

come across

00:19:44--> 00:19:45

options

00:19:46--> 00:19:46

in between the second

00:19:48--> 00:19:50

option want

00:19:54--> 00:19:56

to come back to the general program

00:19:59--> 00:19:59

at two o'clock

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

back onto the general, you can actually do that on your phone, if you

00:20:04--> 00:20:08

you will be able to find that particular facility on the phone

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

as Muslims

00:20:13--> 00:20:13

because

00:20:15--> 00:20:18

distraction and I think the greatest blessing

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

one

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

unacceptable

00:20:27--> 00:20:28

woman

00:20:49--> 00:20:50

to the masculine condition

00:21:03--> 00:21:06

there's a different culture there. And one of the things

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

that I found

00:21:10--> 00:21:12

to be an exceptional

00:21:13--> 00:21:14

situation I found the

00:21:24--> 00:21:26

proportion of weapons and armor

00:21:31--> 00:21:32

was phone rings.

00:21:33--> 00:21:35

You have 500,000 and you're probably

00:21:38--> 00:21:38

getting

00:21:42--> 00:21:44

a lot of people but the personal

00:21:50--> 00:21:53

the condition of people who change their own conditions

00:22:06--> 00:22:08

should not justify it. You know.

00:22:26--> 00:22:29

People need the phone sometimes in order to other family members.

00:22:32--> 00:22:32

People

00:22:34--> 00:22:39

need to know how to use it and the people who do not know maybe they're not fortunate enough to

00:22:43--> 00:22:43

use

00:22:51--> 00:22:51

is it

00:22:53--> 00:22:54

permissible to

00:22:56--> 00:22:58

be talking to somebody on the phone

00:23:01--> 00:23:02

matter is

00:23:03--> 00:23:03

when we're

00:23:11--> 00:23:12

going to reduce the

00:23:13--> 00:23:15

cost because I remember

00:23:18--> 00:23:25

to prove to a person which is worse because now there are two voices and the entire discussion and to get on the phone.

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

When you're speaking to someone next to you and speaking on the phone.

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

We tend to look at the mobile phone

00:23:38--> 00:23:40

possibly because they speak a little bit louder.

00:23:43--> 00:23:52

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.

00:24:00--> 00:24:07

They are speaking to a family member that is not with them. And you know the you know sort of

00:24:09--> 00:24:10

kind of thing and I think

00:24:14--> 00:24:26

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.

00:24:33--> 00:24:35

Even happens to all people and

00:24:36--> 00:24:40

a weakness and lack of understanding. People come to me for

00:24:46--> 00:24:49

the weakness of our own understanding because of that

00:24:53--> 00:24:54

up for them

00:25:02--> 00:25:03

It'll become more of a show.

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

And

00:25:10--> 00:25:13

we should concentrate properly.

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

Far beyond that,

00:25:20--> 00:25:23

from the the, the internet, which is

00:25:26--> 00:25:27

off, and they actually talk about it, and

00:25:29--> 00:25:32

we showed them how quickly we computed the

00:25:34--> 00:25:37

things that are happening each of us and that's why I say

00:25:41--> 00:25:44

we first need to look at ourselves

00:25:45--> 00:25:53

counting backwards, you have to look at what we're doing and we have to correct ourselves the use of mobile phones is something

00:26:00--> 00:26:01

I've come across people

00:26:05--> 00:26:07

that want to choose,

00:26:19--> 00:26:21

understand why they do this.

00:26:35--> 00:26:36

You can call it

00:26:38--> 00:26:44

a discussion with regards the attitude that people have about the organization

00:26:50--> 00:26:50

of

00:26:52--> 00:26:53

facilities.

00:26:58--> 00:27:00

And we can't just use it as if it's for

00:27:02--> 00:27:05

the government or the taxpayers money is

00:27:06--> 00:27:11

the taxpayers money, and we can have it for days and people just

00:27:13--> 00:27:19

content and we shouldn't have that attitude when it comes to using our facilities in the masjid.

00:27:21--> 00:27:23

Go back to the discussion around progression.

00:27:32--> 00:27:33

sister, brother

00:27:45--> 00:27:46

we're all South Africa

00:27:50--> 00:27:50

to make

00:27:53--> 00:27:53

money

00:27:54--> 00:27:58

invested into for more people are going to charity.

00:28:23--> 00:28:26

As you pointed out to me, at home, we spend a lot of

00:28:28--> 00:28:28

money

00:28:29--> 00:28:30

at these facilities

00:28:34--> 00:28:36

to make to make sense out amongst themselves.

00:28:39--> 00:28:41

Completely I think my brother says

00:28:55--> 00:29:07

didn't have access to water but we're not really punching the people regarding the summer of using your own water because before you come to the method, definitely protect you from backbiting

00:29:08--> 00:29:09

because they

00:29:11--> 00:29:13

become really costly.

00:29:15--> 00:29:17

And it's really bad. And on top of that, the wastage.

00:29:25--> 00:29:27

And you shouldn't you should

00:29:34--> 00:29:37

I think it would actually reduce the presence of

00:29:41--> 00:29:45

carefully selected words because we don't have to condemn anyone but at the same time, the

00:29:47--> 00:29:49

usage of these facilities that we've had

00:29:54--> 00:29:55

there's so many things that are not similar

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

progression, but we were talking about

00:30:04--> 00:30:05

People have

00:30:13--> 00:30:14

electricity.

00:30:21--> 00:30:21

If you still need to move,

00:30:26--> 00:30:26

you need to make

00:30:28--> 00:30:29

the flow and

00:30:30--> 00:30:35

extension why I'm saying this is because we've extended our own authority to work.

00:30:46--> 00:30:49

Future, slightly more comfortable than the average

00:30:53--> 00:30:54

novel you

00:30:58--> 00:30:58

facilities

00:31:04--> 00:31:06

destroyed and exceeded, expand and

00:31:13--> 00:31:27

expansion has to happen and conditioned that you haven't wasted the funds, you've had the funds and so on, and unconditioned that you know, for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah and it was necessary for something if it was worth

00:31:31--> 00:31:31

it

00:31:36--> 00:31:37

would probably prefer to wait.

00:31:43--> 00:31:44

Around people have

00:31:45--> 00:31:46

the tissue paper

00:31:50--> 00:31:51

we need to

00:31:52--> 00:31:57

use at least facilities, if you have no own and humbler and

00:32:03--> 00:32:04

someone wants to cover

00:32:06--> 00:32:07

their arms and so on. So

00:32:17--> 00:32:18

efficient tanks,

00:32:20--> 00:32:22

empty tanks before we go into the factory.

00:32:28--> 00:32:30

Many of us use facilities in

00:32:34--> 00:32:37

our locality, and particularly in Johannesburg.

00:32:44--> 00:32:45

It is

00:32:46--> 00:32:47

good practice to

00:32:50--> 00:32:52

use the facilities

00:32:54--> 00:32:54

to coach

00:32:58--> 00:32:59

people.

00:33:05--> 00:33:05

But

00:33:09--> 00:33:10

I'm sure they would like somebody to help

00:33:13--> 00:33:14

them I'd like to take it home.

00:33:22--> 00:33:23

The nature of people

00:33:29--> 00:33:30

in the Muslim community

00:33:40--> 00:33:42

that is a sign of rejection from a lot of

00:33:43--> 00:33:46

people who sleep over more people will leave the facility

00:33:51--> 00:33:53

if you haven't given some donation, but you can.

00:33:56--> 00:33:58

Not sure that you've actually given the money

00:33:59--> 00:34:00

actually.

00:34:01--> 00:34:08

And as I said, it's not compulsory to promote from the point of view, but the goodness of your heart and common sense.

00:34:16--> 00:34:16

us

00:34:18--> 00:34:18

out,

00:34:20--> 00:34:21

you know, twice a week and

00:34:23--> 00:34:23

so on,

00:34:25--> 00:34:25

up and down,

00:34:26--> 00:34:27

up and down

00:34:29--> 00:34:29

to collect money

00:34:31--> 00:34:31

for the upkeep.

00:34:34--> 00:34:36

Because people tend to forget

00:34:42--> 00:34:46

our own dependencies. That's the only time when we go to another dependency.

00:34:48--> 00:34:49

On a framework I come

00:34:52--> 00:34:52

a donation

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

which will probably go a long way in our spiritual intervention.

00:35:00--> 00:35:00

intention

00:35:03--> 00:35:04

should be considering

00:35:09--> 00:35:11

using facility and so on, except

00:35:13--> 00:35:13

for money but

00:35:14--> 00:35:17

maybe possibly projected in that cost

00:35:19--> 00:35:19

to us

00:35:22--> 00:35:23

in the correct manner.

00:35:27--> 00:35:29

In the form of rejection from a lot

00:35:35--> 00:35:38

of us we earned the monies and where we sleep in

00:35:46--> 00:35:46

and

00:35:48--> 00:35:50

around the hump now

00:35:52--> 00:35:59

taking over the government and the people making double and sometimes triple the proper value of those particular buildings.

00:36:02--> 00:36:02

And

00:36:03--> 00:36:04

a few buildings in

00:36:10--> 00:36:14

new buildings without taking up any of compensation

00:36:17--> 00:36:18

are often two

00:36:30--> 00:36:34

pieces of advice used to be a huge burden and not

00:36:36--> 00:36:37

to be to be taken into

00:36:39--> 00:36:40

the type of mentality

00:36:52--> 00:36:53

10 times the amount

00:36:56--> 00:36:58

we need to understand how

00:36:59--> 00:37:00

to spend money.

00:37:09--> 00:37:14

It's a great pleasure speaking to you continue to play some of this knowledge

00:37:17--> 00:37:22

so that we can continue to benefit from myself and the rest of the team.
