knowledge that you taught,

00:00:05--> 00:00:19

again, knowledge that you're taught, we visited today, one of the elder people. And he mentioned something very interesting. I spoke about how we reach out to the disabled.

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

With wheelchairs,

00:00:22--> 00:00:25

we reach out to the disabled with wheelchairs.

00:00:26--> 00:00:33

And he told us, it is more important, without belittling the wheelchairs.

00:00:34--> 00:00:38

To reach out to the ignorant with school chairs.

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

That's a very deep statement.

00:00:44--> 00:00:55

Because a disabled person will not harm others, but an ignorant person will harm others. So who is more disabled, the one who's ignorant, fight ignorance more

00:00:56--> 00:01:02

than you fight disability without belittling the fact that you definitely need to reach out to the disabled.

00:01:03--> 00:01:17

Now when I look at the school chair, I will look at small wheels under the school chair because to me, it's now a wheelchair. They are disabled in a worse way than those who are physically disabled. So to spend your money teaching people

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

is part of what we're talking about today.

00:01:22--> 00:01:27

And to spend your time your effort, your energy is part of what we are talking about today.
