00:00:02--> 00:00:17

I've come across young people who come to me and say, I'm not feeling well, why because they this person or someone else told me that you're ugly, and you listen, and I always tell them you're not, you're absolutely stunning, but it needs the right eyes. That's all. It needs the right heart.

00:00:18--> 00:00:22

None of us is ugly. None of us is

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

thrown out of the mercy of Allah, every one of us is within the mercy of Allah. No matter what you look like, no matter what your complexion is, no matter what your size is, Allah has created us so diverse, that someone somewhere will really look at you and die to be with you. So panela literally, and the reason I say this is, we have a different taste.

00:00:48--> 00:01:12

You find sometimes, you know, some people might look somewhere and say, oh, wow, did you see this? Look at how good someone else was saying what what are you looking at? But that's how Allah has made us. So appreciate that. Thank Allah, no matter who you are, they will be people who are crazy about you. Why it's a must method. It's a last way, Allah made us different. And that's why have you thought about it? Do you know what I learned? I learned that if you shave your head,

00:01:13--> 00:01:20

the way your hair grows totally unique. You can actually in future have, I don't know what do they want to call it? A hair print?

00:01:21--> 00:01:41

You know, for recognition, we have the iris unique. We have for example, the thumbprint unique. Everything is unique. Did you know that there are no two zebras on earth that have the same stripes? You would know because you are from Kenya right? No two zebras have the same stripes no two leopards have the same spots.

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

00:01:50--> 00:02:27

duni This is the creation of Allah show me what those besides Allah have created. It's the creation of Allah. Allah challenges us He is the proud he is the one who says look I made this show me what others have made all of you have a different identity you know what is DNA? I'm sure you've heard it, but go and read about it go and research You will be shocked when I gave a little bit of saliva for a DNA test of my own to find out sorry, this this is telling us the time is up but it's okay.

00:02:29--> 00:02:38

To find out more about myself who am I where I come from? And they gave me back 15 generations where you are from

00:02:39--> 00:02:43

DNA What was it? A little bit of saliva in a small little spittoon

00:02:44--> 00:02:53

Wow. Me unique me they will tell me who I'm related to who I'm not related to. You know, they won't say which microphone is working and which is not but that's fine.

00:02:54--> 00:02:59

But my brothers and sisters Don't you think it's amazing. It's the creation of Allah.

00:03:00--> 00:03:37

We are different, totally different. We will appreciate those differences, we will acknowledge them really and we will enjoy the fact that we are different unique. Look at your features. Thank Allah. Look at the others thank Allah but remember, it's a test the minute anyone thinks they are better than the other because of what Allah has given them. That is the very minute that they have dropped all their crystals. Sometimes you collect a bag of crystals. You know what the crystals are? I was speaking about them from the beginning, right? You collected a whole bag, but because of one big thing you dropped the whole bag.
