Assalamu alaikum. It could change their lives

00:00:02 --> 00:00:04

because they've looked up to you. That's 1

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

of the reasons why when someone says, Sheikh,

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

can I have a photo with you? I

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

try not to deny it. I know it's

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

very difficult. I know sometimes

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

you have to make a plan. You know,

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

you have someone. And, look, It it it

00:00:16 --> 00:00:19

may not be ideal, but sometimes you have,

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

a woman there. Like I said, it may

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

not be ideal. There could be people saying,

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

no. You're sheikh. You shouldn't even be doing

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

that at all. But look.

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

When someone's really been impacted by you all

00:00:29 --> 00:00:31

their lives, so many things have changed. 1

00:00:31 --> 00:00:33

day, they suddenly see you. They want to

00:00:33 --> 00:00:36

capture the moment. Nothing more. It's captured. There's

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

no halwa, meaning there's no seclusion. You're not

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

with them alone. There's it's in full view

00:00:41 --> 00:00:43

of the public. Everyone is there, and they

00:00:43 --> 00:00:45

want to be to to have the opportunity

00:00:45 --> 00:00:47

to say, you know what? I actually met

00:00:47 --> 00:00:50

this person who's my teacher, who taught me

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

knowingly, unknowingly for decades or for a long

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

time.

00:00:53 --> 00:00:56

I think to deny them that would probably

00:00:56 --> 00:00:57

be more,

00:00:58 --> 00:01:01

difficult for them to digest at times

00:01:02 --> 00:01:04

than to say, okay. You know what? There's

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

a table between us. There's a few other

00:01:06 --> 00:01:09

people here. There's so much here. You can

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

take a quick picture and move on, you

00:01:11 --> 00:01:13

know. And what what's the quick picture all

00:01:13 --> 00:01:15

about? It is capturing

00:01:15 --> 00:01:18

the real life moment that did occur.

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

Mhmm. It's not like I'm doing something

00:01:21 --> 00:01:24

absurd. This thing happened in full view of

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

the whole public, you know.
