I want you to picture this, okay. There's a guy that, you know, never prays in the ministry, you don't really see him in the community and that boom, all of a sudden, he started showing up to all the prayers, okay? He's showing up to the prayers, his clothes start getting a little shabby. His beard is getting a little shabby and but he's always there in the masjid, all of a sudden, just out of nowhere, and he's coming, coming, getting more active, more getting more active, and then boom, he's not there in the midst anymore.
