hamdulillah Shukla Allah Almighty have blessed us wherever they are in the Philippines. We'll finish with the Zimbabwean guy and then another beautiful day in Manila.
And what are our way home? Currently, we are in transit in Abu Dhabi airport. Once again, I'm enjoying the company of my very dear brother, Mufti menk.
Africa Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato convenor. We had a beautiful trip, I was just telling my brother, Dr. Mohammed, that, at the time of the Sahaba, their loved one whom when they used to make short journeys, what we consider very short say from Medina to Mecca, they used to take many days. And with us in a few hours, we are right on the other side of the globe. And you know, within a few days, we're actually all the way back. This is the formula for love, we need to use it for the right reasons. And inshallah we need to ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to accept from us these journeys. My brothers and sisters, whenever we travel, we need to thank Allah for the ease of
travel, even though you know, some people complain about very small things. But in essence, if we think about it, compared to what it used to be where it is now, en la, it's a favor of Allah. So use it in order to obey Allah subhanho wa Taala. And don't use it to disobey the Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy. May Allah accept from all of us the effort that we have put in, which was very, very small, in the Philippines in the last few days. I mean, Baraka levels up, not to forget, of course, the media platform that we're using right now,
which is the live broadcast on this very low, small device,
our smartphones and Hungary level shockula.
This is another blessing. And the best way to thank Allah, and to show gratitude for his blessings, is why utilizing them in what is useful, and avoiding using them in anything that may upset a lot of
you. I was talking about another distinction,
which is this media platform that we're using right now, who could have imagined that one day, you and I were talking a few minutes ago about just imagine a few years ago, exactly 10 years ago, it was like a dream, no one could have ever imagined that through a smartphone, we can have a meeting with people from all over the globe. That is actually very true. I was we were talking just a few minutes ago about how just in the 90s, when the mobile phone was made more accessible to the rest of the public. And you know, we used to have a brick a huge phone. And people used to get so excited because it's a cellular phone. And who knew that in a few years, the internet would be connected to
that phone and you would actually browse to that particular phone. And today you don't need a computer anymore. You can actually have your smartphone and does everything that a computer does. So this is Allah subhanho wa Taala from Allah to saloon, a oma even an in named Allah is going to definitely ask you on the Day of Judgment regarding the gifts he has bestowed upon you, how did you use them? You know, we made things easy for you. What did you do with it? Did you actually use it to develop closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala? Did you use it to get further away? Some people use this mobile device in a very dirty way in a dangerous way to do the wrong things to develop the
wrong relationships and so on. And some people use it some pilot love for the right reason. So where do you fit in? That's a beautiful question. I need to ask myself and we all need to ask ourselves. So let's thank Allah for this technology. And I think it's going to get even more sophisticated and more complicated. As time passes, little children will start using it it actually I feel that it does not allow the development of the child sometimes when they start using this type of device very early in their life. May Allah make it easy for us I just mentioned while you are shaking hands with somebody else, that the best way to show gratitude to Allah for his blessings is by utilizing those
blessings and favors in what is useful in what is considered an act of obedience and avoid any using them anything which is other harmful or considered as a sin or amalthea. There is an area in which a lot of money says the animal lover may have a bill by where and how can we fit this area with the use of these mobile devices.
So, where Now, whenever you are by yourself, you're not actually by yourself, once you have this device with you, you have an access to all of the good things and the bad things, meanwhile. So how can we employ this area, the Alabama law, how many have Middlebury in order to bring in the consciousness and the awareness of Allah business whenever you are
assuming that you are by yourself or in private holding this device. So how Allah you know, before I even say anything about that story comes to my mind where one of the parents was actually complaining to me, he says, you know, my daughter never left the home. She's such a good girl, she was such a good girl, and so on. And we got her a device, and she used to sit in her room. And we used to think that she's praying or something. But in actual fact, she was in her bedding, you know, under the blanket, so to speak, and people think she's asleep. And she was on this device, using it in the wrong way, until she ended up doing some really bad things. So he was complaining. And that
brings our attention to the use of these particular things. Going back to the alarm alarm when you have a baby, you know, fearing a lot in the unseen without anyone knowing something that I have learned to understand is this mobile device, everything you do on it, is actually traceable, everything No matter how much they say, this phone is not hackable, no matter how much they say, this device that says, you know, you deleted it's gone, I have this application to block to save. It is it is hackable, number one. Number two is the encryption can be D encrypted, and it can be retrieved no matter what you've done. So that would actually make us conscious of the hisab of the
day of piano because people used to think how is Allah going to bring up all these deeds and you know, weigh them? You know, to be honest, we weigh what we do on this phone, in gigabytes and megabytes. And that's also a weight. It's a type of measurement. Obviously, we believe that on the Day of Judgment, there will be the scales of justice. But if people can actually tell you what you've done on your phone, what do you think about Allah subhanho wa Taala I know so many people whose images on their phones have been posted on other sites, and they didn't even have a clue that they were there until someone drew their attention to it. How many of us our images must be all over
the world without us even knowing where exactly they've got to. May Allah make it easy for us. I think it's important for us to realize the unsuitability to Allah subhanho wa Taala Marley harden kita vilanova de casa de rotten, wala Kabir rotten in LA Saha. When the people see their deeds on the Day of Judgment, they will be saying, you know what's happening this book has left no big deal, no small deal except that it has got it written. Now. So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala really to know. And we ask Allah to protect us from that which is evil, you know, there is a
Allahu makini behala Lika and harmonica venini before the communists
Oh Allah grant independence to Holland, you know, fulfill my needs to handle and protect me from harm. And you be the one who I depend on in order for me not to rely on anyone besides me with the help so that I don't have to go to the house.
Talking about heroin, heroin, Mashallah, we have viewers from all over the world, from the States Chicago, Houston, Texas and Pakistan, Kenya,
the Philippines everyone Mashallah some people are very interested in what is on the menu, what do we have, we have characters.
Okay, this is what we have. Understand that we are in a public place. This is a of course, you may look at the bone behind us, but we'll have the lower drink carrot juice, I keep drinking carrot juice to the point that I'm afraid I will be like a rabbit.
So this while we haven't handled, Chef, basically, when I logged on, I logged on with the title of another fake story. I started the series
A couple of weeks ago, where basically every once in a while, I shared with the audience, a very, very popular story, very famous story that will keep circulating and will give me a rating because we have been taught these stories as if it is a part of the program. It is so popular to the point that he can imagine that it is fake. But remember our last words yesterday in the closing session and in the conference in Manila,
where we put emphasis on the fact that it doesn't matter who is a speaker,
famous how celebirty is a speaker, the speaker must provide a reference because his statement will be circulated broadly. And also it is absolutely right to ask for a reference. No matter how famous is a story. So the last time
I shared with the audience the story of the Jewish man who used to throw their trash in front of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And when he missed the trash when the Prophet Mr. Trash one day he inquired about them, they said that he said, so he went and he visited him and he accepted Islam. And I verified that there is no such thing as not even a weak Hadith. It's an entirely an absolutely fabricated story. I've verified that from different angles. And I mentioned the counterpart to that and we have already in the Sunnah seven Hadith that we can rely on. Instead of quoting something like that and ascribing to the prophets, Allah Salah. Go ahead, I think something that we need to
all know is sometimes, you know, those who are considered scholars as well. Sometimes things are not brought to their attention. Sometimes it's only when you go and search something that you realize this was wrong. I give you an example with myself.
The story of him has been to develop your love on the liver. Yes, where God when she, when they spoke about her, and Hamza viola, and his martyrdom, we all do know that Hamza of a loved one without a doubt, his body was mutilated, without a doubt. But there are people who don't like the rest of the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu. And what they did is they fabricate tails against the Sahaba, so that you and I start hating the people you're supposed to love the most, because hinda binturong eventually accepted his nomination became not just the companion and arranger of some of the Hadith Sahih. And some people say she was so hesitant to accept Islam, she really didn't want to and she
did it because by force, all those details, these are tales, to be honest with you the story about her chewing the liver, that is wrong, that is actually fake. Yeah, it is fabricated. And even though it exists in the books of Sierra, meaning in the books of history, and I always say there's a difference between Hadith and history. You know, one is in a historic narration, and one is narration in the Hadith.
The historic narrations, there is a lot of people there are a lot of people who added things into those books. I have done series on on the Sierra. And that's when I figured out that you know what, a lot of what we knew when we were kids, and we grew up we took for granted, and we hope this is what happened. I mean, everyone believes comes out of their landline, his body was mutilated, here comes a lady, and he she took out this liver and she chewed it and she drank the blood. I mean, that is dirty, filthy. And she did not do that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to clarify and a person like me, when I was speaking about
hams a little bit longer, and I made mention of him vintage, but and what what is supposedly done. And immediately one of my stats, one of my lecturers from Madina munawwara, many years ago, he happened to be listening to this lecture that was being delivered in Malaysia live, he sent me an email and said, You know what, this is the tactic. This is the authentication. This is the, this is the study that was done regarding what you said, the next day, if you go to it, it's it's this series of the companions of the Prophet. And the very next day, when I opened my lecture, I was not shy to say my brothers and sisters, yesterday I sent this I was wrong, I was corrected. And what is
correct is this today, I'm sharing it with you. So panela, even myself, there was a stage when I didn't know that this is actually not authentic. But you have to authenticate. And this is why it's absolutely important to do it. Don't be ashamed of correcting yourself. Don't be ashamed of you, no matter who you are. Don't be ashamed of saying, look, I was wrong. Here it is, it was a mistake. And here I've corrected this humbleness. And
basically what I mentioned when I started this series, and I said,
it's a fact that, including myself, and my teachers, and my seniors. And until today, many scholars keep circulating these stories because we took him for granted, we thought it can be bought true, because we've been taught that since our childhood, including the story have been taught that but it is time to put a stop to that it is time to clarify to the audience and it is your rights upon us. Since you don't have to search and authenticate the Hadith. Maybe it is not your job. But now it is our job. And it is our duty before we pass on any knowledge you mentioned the reference and makes it we're going to do our homework. We're going to do our homework. There is another point that I'd like
to raise and that is you know,
a reasonable revelation of the verses of the Quran. There are several books one is written by Wahidi as well. What I've noticed over the years when when I went through these as above is even some of these books some narrations have crept into them that are actually not authentic. I give you an example. When the Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about
you know the people who prostrate for Allah and the bow for Allah subhanho wa Taala and the verse actually sees
you as soon as the cat Omar
You don't know. So there is an aeration which is fabricated, which we'd say that was a little bit about he's the only one who did that. So sometimes what I notice is it says that he donated his ring while while he was while he was an arcade while he was in the pool, whereas it that is a fabrication. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us to realize that there are some people sometimes for certain reasons, they have added these things. And we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us. Okay, I've got some remarks, which I would like to commend upon.
What I do that myself and my dear brother, Mufti May,
you know, these remarks are very important, I would like to clarify, clarify them.
Today's session was about another very, very, very famous story or a couple of stories, which if I share with you, and I say actually the did not exist, you will be shocked. We all know that the major event of the migration of the Prophet salallahu alaihe, salam, and every year or keep telling our children the stories of how the pigeons laid eggs at the mouth, oh, by the mouth of the cave, and despite their belt swept and all of that, and it is hard to tell people that Guess what, there was no pigeons, there was no eggs. There is no narration in this regard. And as far as
the spider web it is rooted in a very weak narration and add to all of that if we examine together
and number 60 of surah.
of Surah Al Basha number nine de la
Takada masala. Hola. Hola, Dina. cafaro xerneas Lane in Houma. filati area puluh sahibi de la Zen.
In this, a lot of mighty says Ada Who did you know then?
That is a final word in the cigar. The essay is that a lot of mighty supported and protected His Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem with Juno Juno means house Torah of john
viggiano the lamp with holes that you could not see, you cannot visualize. So it is actually much more miraculous to know that the the mouse of the came was wide open. And that's why abubaker so they've said what your shed
concerned he was very worried. And and this is when
he was worried, obviously.
When he said lonavala home, if they had to look just just just like just by their feet, they would see us, okay, well, if they look, that means the mouse of the cables open.
Okay, so we just want to establish the fact that there was no pigeons, there was no eggs, and it is actually much more miraculous, to have the meccan pagans chasing the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his companion. And they were so close that one foot away from him. But a lot of mighty protected him with junoon that you could not see. I think one thing that I've always loved one thing that I've always learned, is there two or three types of people, when when the truth comes to people, they're a group of people who surrender immediately and they learned and so on the other sets?
I don't think so. You know, I really don't think so there's a problem here and so on. So we need to choose which which category we fall into. When we hear the truth. Do we actually surrender to or we don't look at something very interesting because a lot of people love pedaling tails. And the pedaling of these tails becomes their habit such that they don't get any comfort until the tail is said.
Okay, shirtless man. You know, I'm not sure I love you for the sake of Allah.
traveling the world, by the grace of God been trying our best. May Allah make the acceptance of Hana Allah we just landed from the plane. And the first thing that I heard
from brother is married men. Once we landed, he said, Chef May Allah accept from us who've done tremendous efforts and May Allah accept it. I love that because you know you never know by the end intentions are something between the dollar and a lot of mighty. So and if the deeds are not accepted What a waste especially when you travel the world and you put a lot of miles and you stay away from the family. And it is not really a job that you do for the dunya so if it is messed up with anything that messes with your intention. What a waste.
Now, since we're talking about this, I want to bring up the issue of, there are some Muslim us,
men and women who have appointed themselves to be judgmental of others, not just of others, you know, commitment and religious practice, but also this person is within the fold of the deen and this person is outside the fold of Islam and this person is on the manager and this person is outside the manager and this person is practicing, and this person is not practicing. And so, and sometimes, not sometimes, most of the time, I figure that those who are being judgmental, are the people who know very little about the deal. If you test them, and he asked them to open the Quran, and to read from the book, read from the Quran, they cannot read properly. So they are being
judgmental of others, while they themselves need a lot of work, so don't you think that it would be better for them to spend this time learning in instead of wasting their time, Miss judging others and trying to hinder people from the path of Allah? And also like to speak about the permissibility of judging others? And On what basis? Is there a framework? Is there something like rules guidelines? Can anyone judge just judge anyone else in the light, of course of the Sunnah of the Prophet. So a lot of
I think what we are taught as Muslim men, and this is a general rule that we have is to clarify what is the man has, for example, rather than speaking about people, and to say which deeds would remove a person, for example, out of the phone, and which deeds would not, so rather than saying this person and that person and so on and creating a huge disaster, we'd rather say that this person here is sorry, this deed is a deed that would, would put your Eman at stake, this deal would remove you from the fold of Islam. So when we talk about the deeds, one rather than the individual, because your intention, my intention should be if this man is making a mistake, we want to correct him in
the most beautiful way, and there will be a day when inshallah he will come. But if you have tainted his image by mentioning his name and saying this particular person is out of the fold, for example, you haven't given him a chance you haven't even listened to him, you haven't brought him through, you haven't, there was no even justice system or court that would apply it exactly the proper way of doing things. And there was no correction of the individual. And what would happen is in the future, if he had come through, people would still be talking about the past. And people would if he hadn't died, person hasn't died yet, you know, he can change and he can become even better. If what was
said was true, he can change and become a better person. So what we are taught is, rather than say, the person is like this, the person is like that. See, the deed is like this, and the deed is like that, you know, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam on more than one occasion, when people made comments that were judgmental, and I think it's the hadith of a Buddha on the value of your loved one. And the prophet SAW Selim says, Hello shaktikanta. Whom, you know, did you, you know, would you not have opened his heart? Have you opened this heart to actually see what's inside the heart in this incident that you will surely
The prophet SAW Selim was really angry with him to the point that Osama said I wish I hadn't accepted the standard for Thea day, I wish I hadn't accepted Islam yet. Because, obviously, to judge somebody is really something that you should we should not be doing. You know, we have had an issue, and this is something that is contemporary, we're back at home. Sometimes a person dies, and the family comes they're all Christians and they come and say, Look, that man was a Muslim.
So we asked some of the people do you know him Did he used to come to the masjid or, and sometimes they weren't far away, they leave early morning, they come back and so on. We had one incident very interesting incident, where a woman accepted Islam. And she told her husband that evening about what had happened.
And this was in, in a in the rural area, like not in the city, but rather further away from the city in the high density area. And what happened is, the man was so impressed by worshipping Allah alone alone. And he said, You know what, I follow the same faith. He told his wife, I follow the same faith. But on Saturday, when I get a chance, then I will go to the masjid and I will declare my faith. Hmm. So what happened is, he started practicing according to his wife and his wife was known to the mess the amount of MSG that she had.
Just a few days before men accepted Islam. Yeah. So it so happened that on Friday, he passed away.
He was going to come through. So he thought he had to be baptized, he thought some maybe he has to be, you know, he has to drink the holy water and so on. So, so he didn't realize that he's already declared the Shahada to his wife. So correct. It came to me when he passed away to say, you know what, this man is a Muslim. And the people, his wife is the only one witness that he's a Muslim, and she needs the story. And the people around they know him as a Christian, you know? So the question is, where do we bury him? Now, I said, I said, that it's better to make a mistake, it's better to make a mistake, to consider a person who's not a Muslim, or Muslim in this case, and to make a
mistake and remove a Muslim from Islam, Allah, so it's better for me to make the mistake and we declared it we said, Look, you will be made with the Muslim man, and we vetted him with the Muslim man. So this was and some people later on we, you know, I was certain that he was but some people were saying, How do you know I said, Look, my brother, I'd rather make a mistake, and bury him with the Muslim men to make a mistake and kick out someone who was a Muslim in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And in my eyes, I just said, No, no, no, I'm doubting let me move him out. How so this is an example of how important it is for us to take care regarding these matters. We'll
share with you brothers and sisters that Alhamdulillah yesterday, a few people have accepted Islam. non Muslims have entered Islam, Mufti, menk, Zack Allah Hara, he gives Shahada to a few people handler yesterday, and it was a blessing. So the trip was really worth it. And not only that,
I have seen by my own eyes, some higher ranking officers and officials, non Muslims, you have seen them don't watch me.
they were crying. And they requested further more informations about Islam, they even requested certain supplications that will say it and certain ahaadeeth those people are doing the keyboard Jihad and reclining on the couches or in the comfort of their bedrooms, and just passing the judgments and telling them this person is a stray and this person was of the man has really done nothing to serve the deen. They are just hindering people from the path of Allah. And they cannot realize how much effort and hamdulillah others have put in leaving their families traveling the world they think that this is like a luxury. And it is not simply tourism brothers and sisters, the
law he it's a big, big responsibility, besides the the hassle of the traveling and missing the flights on wheels, but
it is it is a big responsibility. The hardest time, at least for myself is right before I give the lecture, even though I may have given the same lecture so many times and I don't have to prepare for but I feel the responsibility. I say, You know those people who have been gathering and preparing for months in order to listen to one hour lecture, really better to be worth it. Otherwise, we're a waste. it's their responsibility. What What, what makes us feel
the heavy duty most It is the responsibility. Brothers and sisters, it is the responsibility of the matriarch.
What I wanted to say is, you know, it's very true, we've seen high ranking officials who are really moved by the message of the dean, I always take cue from a sort of loss or sell them when may interrupt you because the Chanel is blocking the light from office is that I want that to be that. I want to see that.
So what I've learned is, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was spreading the goodness, we went to the enemies of Islam,
all these people, he called them Abu lahab. Whether they accepted or not, is a whole different story. But he called them he used to talk to them he used to, and some of them accepted the deal, meaning some of the people who used to be enemies, they accepted that the that was the effort. So if we say this guy is an enemy of Islam, he's one of the kuffaar etc. Don't even talk to him. When are you going to spread the deen? Someone has to make the effort. No matter. Look at Harley Davidson. Juanito How many did he butcher? How many did he butchered the process I've never ever lost hope. never lost hope. And that was a fact. And we decided we really don't get along and cane. He was
asking he was worried about what he's done in the past. And he's asking, this is what I've done. And the prophet SAW Selim says England Islam I a Jew Boomer
so Panama is just reminded me with America.
Him who was before Islam as bad and as terrible as Khalid, or even more, remember, it was the last or the Allah who was deposed by the metcons to collect the immigrants from a senior. And he was very smart. But hamdulillah Shukla Allah guided into Islam so when you came to accept Islam he the Prophet salaallah salaam searched out his hand to accept the Pledge of Allegiance from him. So he pulled back his hand prophet SAW said and said, What is wrong? Or I'm sad or solemn, I've committed a lot of bad deeds have committed a lot of sense.
I'm not gonna give you the pitch before you promise me that all my sins will be forgiven and allowed forgive me and then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam smiles and he says, Don't you know that he am al Islam weirdo boo macabre and Islam erases accepting Islam erases whatever was done before Don't you know that I tell that with a jumbo macabre. When you repent the erases all the sins are committed before and Alexandra likewise erases what was before.
Remember, when we studied the Sierra we have learned from and Makkah Tibet that the prophets Allah sent him sent letters to the Roman Emperor Persian Emperor to unlock was the Egyptian King. In each message, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what was the letterhead? What did he use to say?
Islam even even before inviting him to Islam, he used to say min Mohammedan rasulillah illa Hara.
So he's given him his status because he, whether we like it or not his room, he is the Roman Emperor. And no caucus was Egyptian came whether we like it or not. So you treat them based on their status and their position, then you invite them to Islam, you go to the locality, and you show them the true message of
not calling them you can remember accepted Islam, you know, and what is even more strange is not saying that, why did Mohammed Salah meet with them? Or meaning Why did he send letters to them? In the case of those whom he sent letters to? Why did we send letters to them out? Or even those who will in the Mecca and Medina, why did he meet with them, these are enemies of Islam, these are butchers These are so I mean, he met with them, he met with them to bring them to the deal so that they can change. So when you have a good heart and you know what, what, for the sake of Allah, you want to help the rest of the of humankind, to see the light, you will be concerned truly about
everyone, you will be concerned about those who are in the clubs and the pubs and the drunkards and those who are not dressed appropriately. And those who are even enemies of Islam, you will be concerned about them, as well to try and spread the news to them, you have to talk to them, you have to tell them if they today if one of the biggest tyrants of Brazil happens to announce that you know what I've turned to Islam? What would be your reaction? What would be your reaction? Would you say Nananana? We can't accept it from Who are you to say that now love forgive us? Is it permissible to pray for the guidance of like a very terrible person, a person who's a very big enemy to Islam and
Muslims? Is it advisable to say Oh, Allah guide him. As soon as
he said, this is
where he said Allahumma is an Islamic
branch linked to the deal with the acceptance of Islam and one of these two men, because they are powerful men, and they are using their power in the wrong way into the dealings using the right. And now we love her I'm out of nakaka but only a low on because I have guided him but before this invocation was accepted, he was as bad and as terrible as a Buddha himself. He was actually
the Prophet Salalah.
And that's when Allah giving guidance why because someone spoke to him. And he saw the verses and the DA and everything put together.
This little concern of ours read the famous catcher since we, you know, we need to have breakfast too. And we need to prepare for the next flight. We have little time and also I don't like to take much of your time brothers and sisters.
I would like to wrap it up by discussing one more thing which is very important, which is if stubbornness, is it recommended, or is it permissible to test people's faith. If somebody says a Chateau La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah and he's a layman. He's an ordinary person.
Is it something recommended? Or what do you think of this sect? What do you think of those people? Or do you think of the shape? Are you a follower of this color?
Is it something that, you know, we have to do? Is it even permissible? That is actually the fitna of this age is the fitna of this age where we don't take people's Shahada anymore. It's not enough to become a Muslim. You have to say, to Allah, Allah, Allah, Masha Allah Muhammad Abdul rasuluh and you have to make more Shahada Do you have to actually go and you know, there's a third segment and the fourth segment to say I'm Listen, I'm that, you know what, this Shahada is enough? If you take a look at all the possible losses, they speak of the Shahada
you know, kuhnian Islam Allah comes in Shahada Vienna in a llama one Neva sola, he didn't say he didn't go beyond this, this the Shahada in terms of bearing witness, obviously, the the salah and the Zakah and all that those are the pillars of the deen. But to start asking people questions, one after the other, you begin to doubt every Muslim you see, you begin to doubt all the people and for you, you're the only one who's on the straight path. That's it. the straight path is a huge highway, you're the only one standing on it. Is that what you're really thinking? May Allah forgive us, Allah
