00:05:07 --> 00:05:18

today's goodbye is about a couple of ayat that belong to SUTA lochia that are really beautiful for you and I to think about in terms of ourselves.

00:05:19 --> 00:05:57

Allah azza wa jal describes uniquely in Slovakia as something that he does not describe in most other places in the Quran. Usually you get a description of Judgment Day, and you get people on the right and you get people, people on the right people on the left, you get people that are believers, people that are disbelievers, you get people that have light, like Allah describes in SOTL, Hadith and SUTA Hareem. He describes people on Judgment Day, they will have light coming from their chest, and from their right side. And there are people that have no light. That's the description between two groups of people, most of the time in the Quran. But in Silicon Valley, Allah decides to

00:05:57 --> 00:06:37

describe three groups of people instead of two. In the opening of the Surah, Allah mentions what quantum as well and Thalassa, you are three, you will be broken up into three groups, unique description. And there are two groups with light. And one of them in the darkness was How was she modeled the people on the left that is known. But Allah describes the special scene on Judgment Day that isn't found much anywhere else that's there and sort of lucky. And that is that there are, what I want you to imagine is there's a group of people on the left side, there's a group of people on the right side. And then there is a VIP section that's in front. And it's closer than everybody

00:06:37 --> 00:07:15

else. And literally, their description is Hola, Ecole Makara. Boone, they're the ones that have been brought close. So there are people that are in the regular sections. And basically what that means is, you're in trouble. This way, you're okay, you're safe this way. The people that are safe are over here. And the people that are in danger are over here. And then there's people that have some kind of a VIP pass, and they're in the front. And they have their own special section. They have been separated. And Allah described. So I want to know who these people are. And interestingly, even when you're taking a flight or you know, you go to a, you know, some kind of a lounge or hotel or

00:07:15 --> 00:07:49

whatever, they have first class. Right? And literally Allah says, These are the people that are first acerbic Cohen. They're the first ones and the best description of them. Okay, who are these people? What does Allah do in his perfect eloquence, nobody speaks more clearly than Allah. You know, the opening of a sentence is supposed to make you curious about the closing of a sentence. In other words, if I say, this community, and you don't hear the rest of the mic cuts off, and you just heard this community, and you just hear my mouth move, but you don't know what I said. In your mind. I must have said something about this community, I must have given you some information. It's called

00:07:49 --> 00:08:14

Hubbard. The first part is called a moped. The latter part is called a cover. And the cover is supposed to be what do you want to say about the motor that tells you what your topic is? And the cover tells you what is it that you wanted to say about that topic? A Saba Kunis Dhammapada, it's, it's your topic. It's what Allah says, I want he wants you to think about. And now he wants us to tell he wants to tell us something about these people that we should know. And what does he do? The Hubbard itself is also a sub one, a sub one, a sub your own?

00:08:16 --> 00:08:23

The first and foremost, these people that are elite that are in the VIP section? What should you know about them? They are the first and foremost what?

00:08:24 --> 00:09:02

How does that? How does that help? If I say who are the students? I say the students are the students. That didn't help. Foster who's the mom, you said the mom is the mom. That didn't help. So how's the cybercoders? servicon? How's that description? What are we? How does that make sense? This is Allah demanding contemplation from a believer. One way of looking at this is Colombian Cherie what that means is, it is as if Allah is so happy with these people that he mentions their name twice, not even a sentence. Oh, the people in the front, the people in the front, like Allah's own joy. Allah has own contentment with these people that he talks about them twice in this way.

00:09:03 --> 00:09:44

Another avenue I show Rahim Allah added is as if there is no better description found for these people than this. This is the best possible description of them. And if you look at it, in one sense, they are in the front, and everybody in the world will look at these people. Why are they in the front? Why did this hobby goon and the answer is because they were in the front in the last life. So Jonnie isavuconazole recon two words, one of them in the era and the other one in dunya. The Cyber con in the afterlife are the ones that were sabe * in dunya. So we have to then ask ourselves, what made them sabe in this dunya? Who are these people? And then Allah goes on further

00:09:44 --> 00:10:00

to say something more about them. That's mysterious. He says fuller terminal. Oh welline. Well, Kali, la Minella Akhirin. They're going to be a very large percentage of people, a large group of people from the early times. And they're going to be lesser people for

00:10:00 --> 00:10:40

On the last times later times, so the further back in history you go, looks like you get more sub up, you get more VIPs with Allah, and the more history moves forward, you get less and less of them. Now that starts sounding depressing. Because that sounds like Well, I think a lot of history has passed since the IOP came out. So we must be pretty much all in the economy section at best, we have no chance of being in the VIP section, that opportunity is gone. So little Minella welline. Luckily, luminol can in fact, some of the companions of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, they got depressed when they heard this idea. They got it. You know why? Because when they heard it, they

00:10:40 --> 00:11:17

said, Oh, this must mean that all the prophets of the past their followers, there were more of them that were sabe Hoon, but in our times, because they're the 18 they're not thinking of us, they're thinking of themselves. They're thinking, Oh, we must be the Arkadin. So there's lesser of us. And there's more of them. You know, and then when Allah describe the people on the right hand, on judgment, a that he says too little mineral, Oberlin with a lot of Minella. There's a huge group of them in the early times, and there's a huge group of them and the later times so now that this becomes kind of a sad thing, I want to be in the VIP, maybe I don't have a chance, maybe that's the

00:11:17 --> 00:11:58

best I can get as the people of the right side. Maybe that's what it means. But then Allah azza wa jal himself, solves this problem. He actually He demands that we contemplate his book, he demands that we seek answers to these questions he demands, because when he left a general, he didn't specify who are these people except there used to be a lot in the early times, and lesser in the later times, but then he himself explained it. In sudo, Toba? He says a savvy Kunal Oh Aluna, mineral mahadji Rena will answer before we go any further. He says, The Sabbath School in the first and the foremost to who came first from the MaHA gteen and the unsavoury

00:11:59 --> 00:12:41

now the thing is, if you know the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the people who first accepted Islam were in Makkah, and then they migrated when the prophets like Selim was nearly killed, they migrated. And they became the MaHA judo and they became the migrants. And the people who helped them are the unsought. So who's first the MaHA Joon because they were the early ones. So you would think in Slovakia when Allah says Serbia Kona Serbia goon it must be talking about the MaHA June. It must be talking about them because the Assad came later on. But in this ayah is sort of the Toba Allah says Isabey Kunal Oh Aluna Amina al Maha Ji now Well, I'm sorry, that the first

00:12:41 --> 00:13:18

and the foremost that belong to the MaHA dream, and the first and the foremost who belong to the Ansara. Now Allah has given us a hint, Allah has told us the word early, and the word late, or the word sabich. Doesn't have to do with who came first. Historically, it has to do with some someone coming first in some other way. You have to think about the word first in some other way. And, but that's what I'm going to help you think about today. You see, anything that people do in this life, forget about Islam for a moment, anything that we do in this life,

00:13:19 --> 00:13:59

we're probably following someone. If I'm wearing these clothes, it's probably because they belong to a culture where everybody wears those clothes, and now following them, and I'm wearing similar kinds of quotes. Language is you following the pattern of your parents? You driving your car in a certain direction, you're following everybody who drives a car in that direction, pretty much all most of my behavior, and most of your behavior is us following something that somebody else has already done. We're basically all followers in most of our lives. Why is it that you bought a laptop, you will you know, what you do before you buy a laptop, you go do a review check. Because somebody else already

00:13:59 --> 00:14:33

bought it. And you're like, Okay, I'll buy this one, because somebody else already bought it. They like it. Enough people like it, now I'm going to follow them, you become a follower in your purchase. Nobody goes and buys a car without checking reviews and talking to customers, reading from customers who already own the car. That's what you do. So we are followers in most things, but in some things, and let's take it a step further. What kind of what kind of degree should you get in university? Those of you that are in the university? What What should I major in? Well, either you're going to follow your parents instructions, because your parents are doctors and your uncle's

00:14:33 --> 00:14:59

a doctor and your cousin's a doctor. So it's wajib on you to be a doctor. So it's not even a question you're going to follow. Right? Or you're going to say, Hey, I'm not sure about my major. Let me ask some of my friends. What are they doing? Or let me see which careers are trending right now. And all these people are making money in this field or this field. Maybe I should go in this field or this field, you'll end up following somebody. But then there's one student in the University who says I don't want to

00:15:00 --> 00:15:40

Hello, anybody, I'm gonna do my own thing. I want to study the history of, you know, pots and do a PhD in clay pottery. Nobody's ever done it before. And his parents are depressed his societies. His everybody thinks he's gone crazy. And they go and tell him Listen, nobody does this. We have pots. We don't need a PhD in pots. This why are you wasting our while you're wasting your life? Do you know anybody who doesn't follow? No, I want to follow my own path. Well, if you want to follow your own path, you probably crazy that the parents tried to give you an example, you see everybody going on the highway this way, if there's a person going in the wrong direction and says I want to follow

00:15:40 --> 00:15:50

my own path, that guy's crazy. You're crazy. Because if you want to follow your own path, there's something wrong with you. Here's the thing. When prophets came

00:15:51 --> 00:15:53

to every nation in the past when prophets came,

00:15:55 --> 00:16:23

and they said something that nobody was following. They said something new, right? They're not following anybody, no human being. They're following an instruction coming directly from Allah. And they're saying, this is the path. You know, how he he said, Really, this is my path. This is my path. And everybody else around them says, Are you crazy? This? Well, my, your father didn't follow this. Your grandfather didn't follow this. Your family doesn't follow this. Why are you going this way.

00:16:24 --> 00:16:28

And they had to be the first to follow a different path, isn't it?

00:16:29 --> 00:16:52

And when you have to be the first to follow a different path than everybody else, disk separates themselves from you. Everybody says, You're crazy. You're extreme. You're doing something nobody else does. And then the few people who followed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they were the first people in their family to do that.

00:16:53 --> 00:17:25

And they all said, Why aren't you? Why are you separating yourself from the family? And somebody had to take that first step. Now let me fast forward from the Prophets time. So we're loving our lives. Imagine someplace in of August on 1000 years ago, 2000. You know, 1000 years ago, let's say, there were Buddhists there, there were Hindus, they were no different religions. There. People traveled there from all over the world. And some young man and some Buddhist family decides to accept Islam. Somewhere in the mountains of Afghanistan, one young man, his whole village is going crazy. What's wrong with you?

00:17:26 --> 00:18:08

What's wrong with you? And this one young man, 18 years old, he runs away from home. He goes somewhere where he can find other Muslims, he gets married starts a family 1000 years ago, how many 1000s of children and grandchildren does he have since then? You understand. But that was because that one person took one first step. And there was no support system for him. He didn't say let me follow somebody else. Because following somebody else is way more convenient, is way more convenient. But when you have to follow your own path, and you have to be the first in your life to take the step, then that makes you a sabich. Because you took the first step, nobody else was

00:18:08 --> 00:18:09

willing to take the first step.

00:18:10 --> 00:18:21

You and I can be Muslim Alhamdulillah we can be in a Muslim family. But that doesn't mean that there are some things in our family or in our lives that are going against the teachings of Allah.

00:18:23 --> 00:18:50

They're going in the wrong direction. And nobody in the family says anything. Everybody's quiet. We just follow. And someone comes along and says, I'm going to take the first step. No, that's wrong. I'm going to do the right thing. We're not going to make money, the Haram way anymore. I'm going to start something new. I'm going to break away, I'm going to create a new path. And they will feel the wrath of everybody else. Because they're sad people,

00:18:51 --> 00:19:07

by the way, wants to serve you. I'm telling you about Dean, but even in science or technology, somebody says I'm gonna make a new app. Yeah, you're crazy. Who's gonna who's gonna care about your app? And then that app takes off. And it's like, Hey, can I join your team?

00:19:08 --> 00:19:45

Because when he was first giving the idea that nobody took him seriously because people don't take savvy honed seriously because nobody follows them. Why can't you be like everybody else? Some of the most amazing inventors and pioneers and entrepreneurs in the world. The only reason they're successful is because in some way they were savvy goon in their field. Because if they were doing everything, every with everything everybody else does if they were just getting a job like everybody else, if they were just doing the work like everybody else. If they were following the path that everybody else follows. They would never have been entrepreneurs to be an entrepreneur to do

00:19:45 --> 00:19:59

something new you have to trailblaze you have to create a new path. And then what happens once they reach success? Then millions of people follow them. What does Allah say? Isabey Kunal sabich Amin al muhajir, when the network

00:20:00 --> 00:20:14

rowhome BSN and those who follow them. So the people of the right hand, you remember those guys, the regular section, the people that are saved, you know who they are, they are the people that are following the path laid out by the Sabbath oon,

00:20:15 --> 00:21:00

the cyber goon created a legacy, they broke away. And the people behind them are following them. And Allah says about both of them are the Allahu Anhu modelu and who Allah is pleased with them, they are pleased with Allah, meaning they're both good. There's still both good in them. But what Allah is saying is, as time goes on, you're going to find less and less people willing to take the first step, everybody will become more used to following everybody will become used to Well, everybody's doing it. So let's just do this. Everybody will follow trends instead of creating a trend. You know, and even nowadays, when, you know, in the age of like social media content production and wanting to

00:21:00 --> 00:21:22

become an influencer, most people that call themselves an influencer are heavily influenced, but call themselves influencers. But anyway, the idea of becoming an influencer, I want to create content. Now let me see what else everybody else is creating. So I can create copy. So you want to be a Saavik. But actually, you're a follower, actually not creating something new at all.

00:21:23 --> 00:22:05

And so that's this is the first thing that I wanted you to see in these is every one of us has an opportunity actually in some capacity to take Saba, and that's why in the very next surah in certain Hadith, this is why in the very next Surah, Allah actually gives us an instruction, he says Sahbihi, Lama Filati mirabito race come first, rush towards forgiveness from Europe, so be become from the soybean sabich You know, which actually means consob, you can become the first because when you tell somebody to raise, you're telling them to win the race. Go ahead and come first. So now the question then becomes for you and me, what is it that I can take a first step in, that I know people around

00:22:05 --> 00:22:26

me I haven't taken but I can take a good first step. In the rest of this football, I want to give you the flip side of this problem. The other side of this equation, which is equally important, somebody says I want to be I want to be first I want to do more than anybody else. I want to do better than anybody else. I want to be among the VIPs with Allah. Fine.

00:22:27 --> 00:22:56

Then they decide that they're going to let's just say let's say they're going to study the Quran. I'm going to study the Quran, that's it, I'm going to be the subject and studying the Quran and my my family and my community. So now they're studying Quran 15 hours a day, eight hours a day, 10 hours a day. They're memorizing. They're learning Arabic. They're listening to lectures, they're trying to study and immerse themselves completely, completely completely. And then their family says, Hey, you want to come for dinner? No, no, I'm trying to be sabich going over here. I don't have time for your dinner.

00:22:57 --> 00:23:20

His friends say hey, you want to go play some basketball, bro, you best best case scenario for you. Maybe as heavily I mean, I'm trying to be the cyber Cohen situation. This is not going to it's not going to come cheap. So you guys go ahead and play basketball. I'm going to do this. I'm going to be on the cyber theme. So you know what happens? You start becoming what's called obsessive compulsive disorder.

00:23:21 --> 00:23:58

You just need to do more and more and more and more. And the more we become focused on doing good, then you know what happens? There are other things in life that we start ignoring. We start ignoring because when somebody says I just want to I have so much guilt I wasted so much of my life. Now I finally made Toba. I want to come back to Allah. Now I'm gonna come put the foot on the accelerator all the way. You know, I can't slow down No, I have to make up for lost time. There's so much guilt. There's so much I've done in my past so I need to make up for it. So now I have to go overboard and what happens people around you start saying hey, I think you're going a little too extreme. And you

00:23:58 --> 00:24:33

say Ah, you see this is exactly what Allah says about you people. You're trying to hold me back. You see in nama Anwar lo como la dokkan fitna your money and your children are fitna for you in nomina zoological mandala decom I do welcome your spouses and your you know your child, your children have enemies among them. So you say, Aha, see, you're trying to slow me down. I'm trying to go in the path of Allah and you're pulling me back. I'm trying to learn lead and you're pulling me back and there can be mothers that are studying their religion all day and their children are being neglected because they're studying Allah's religion. And the husbands are being neglected and their husbands

00:24:33 --> 00:24:47

that are like I want to do Dawa. I want to spread the Allah as dean, I want to learn I want to study and they're not taking care of their parents and they're not taking care of their spouse and they're not taking care of their kids and they're not fulfilling their financial responsibilities because they're just giving themselves to Allah that said, I'm just going to serve Allah's deen

00:24:48 --> 00:24:51

and in their head, this is their way of becoming what Samuel goon

00:24:53 --> 00:25:00

oh, what does Allah tell us in certain Hadees very next Surah verse he says Sabu just like he incurred

00:25:00 --> 00:25:19

He described the amazing status of these people in the previous surah. But now in the next Surah, he's gonna balance that equation for us. And he says, Go rush race fine. But then in the very next ayat Allah azza wa jal describes him. A student pointed this out to me the other day and I thought it was was wonderful contemplation

00:25:20 --> 00:25:31

was that Allah describes the Christian tradition, particularly the Catholic tradition. In the next style, strange change.

00:25:32 --> 00:25:43

And in the Catholic tradition, Allah says, Well, John Nephi Hello, Bill Latina terbaru Hora satin. What if Martin? What are hubba knee at NAB Tada Ruha.

00:25:44 --> 00:26:31

Allah put softness and love and courtesy and care in the hearts of people who followed Jesus. But then some of his followers, they invented something new. They invented the monk life. They invented I'm going to live in a church monastery. I'm going to wear uncomfortable clothes. Because this world is temptation. This world is fitna. I just want to remember Allah, I just want to do vicar, I'm not going to get married, I'm not going to eat all different kinds of food. I'm going to just do the care of Allah and live this life because I want to be in their head. They were trying to be savvy, clean. Actually, that's what they were trying to do. Because if someone says I don't want to get

00:26:31 --> 00:26:44

married, and I don't want to eat all kinds of food, and I don't want to enjoy decent clothes, or just relax, and I just want to just worship, worship, worship. That's what I want to do. Then clearly in their in their head. They're trying to be something.

00:26:45 --> 00:27:27

And Allah says Fernanda, Oh, ha, ha, curry it ha. They weren't able to keep up with it the way they're supposed to. They first of all, they created their own crazy standard. And then they weren't able to keep up with it. They weren't able to do it. What is it that we do? You see the savvy goon. They're not we can't compare them to each other. Each one of you has a different life. And you have to figure out how do you become a sabich in your life, but you cannot do so at the expense of other things Allah put inside me and Allah put inside you, Allah, Allah woman, Hala doesn't even know who he created. It's the same so it's the same Quran that tells, you know, speaks of a balance in life,

00:27:27 --> 00:28:04

what I tend to see becoming a dunya don't forget your portion in this life. If you want to be from the Sabine then you have to be the best at balancing all these things. I have to be the best at learning my Deen I have to be the best at taking care of my health. I have to be the best with my children. I have to be the best with my spouse, with my parents with my business dealings with my financial responsibilities with my social responsibilities with my manners, with even myself, I have to balance with myself I have to take care of the body and the mind that Allah has given you and me is a gift from Allah. It has to be taken care of.

00:28:05 --> 00:28:27

And we have this Deen all of it is about me, Zan, it's all of it is about you know, balance. And these people that are cyber goon they were able to excel while maintaining balance while maintaining a balance. What happens with us is something Allah warns us about either we say Oh, that's too much work. I'm okay on the US. How will you mean section?

00:28:28 --> 00:28:36

I'm good enough here. So long as I'm not burning in *. I'm alright. Just anything except that barbecue and I'm good.

00:28:37 --> 00:28:50

On the other side, some people say no, no, no. If I'm going to do that I have to sacrifice Islam one sacrifice, who told you Islam one sacrifice, whereas Allah ever used the word sacrifice and the Quran sacrifices a Christian concept.

00:28:51 --> 00:29:19

Sacrifice is not a Quranic concept said the only sacrifice we do is have an animal. That's the sacrifice we do. Everything else John Allah comfy Hama, Irish kalila mother screwed, be grateful Allah made things for you to live well. Allah keeps pointing out things why? Why would Allah want me to eat miserably or live miserably where all the time in the Quran he's talking about different kinds of fruits, different kinds of animals, different kinds of food, different kinds of blessings, constantly talking about these? Why? Why?

00:29:20 --> 00:29:33

Because in these things, I will find myself closer and closer to Allah. But regardless, when you and I ever attempt to be sabich, there will be a loss of people, that's for sure.

00:29:35 --> 00:29:52

There will be some kind of social outcast scenario that will happen. So what that means is people that you used to be close to they will become further from you. And the reason they're becoming further from you is you're trying to become closer to Allah.

00:29:53 --> 00:30:00

The closer to Allah you're trying to get some people are very allergic to that and they push away from you now

00:30:00 --> 00:30:09

Don't confuse this. This is why I mentioned both of those scenarios. Just because I'm trying to get closer to Allah doesn't mean I get to push people away.

00:30:10 --> 00:30:47

Because that's what a lot of people do that they push people away. And then they say, ah, these people, they're pushing me away. No, no, no, you're lying. You're the one pushing them away. You're the one imposing your standards on them. You're doing that not them. But even if you are maintaining balance, and you're trying to be a person of sun, and you're trying to be a sabich, there may be people that still just as a result of that, they push you away. And then you have to decide whether you want to maintain closeness with Allah, or want to go back towards those people. People choose to sacrifice sometimes their social social environments to stay closer and closer to Allah did to make

00:30:47 --> 00:31:09

this easy for you to understand if there's a university student who used to party used to hang out used to have the fun life. And then he decides he's going to be the first among his friends to start praying. He's the first guy that starts praying first guy that says, Hey, guys, I'll be back. Where are you going? Oh, there's nothing. Well, come on. Where are you going? Oh, there's a Friday, Friday, prayer time. You pray. You.

00:31:10 --> 00:31:13

Remember last month, what we were doing on Friday?

00:31:15 --> 00:31:28

I know I know. But I'm going through change. Okay, that's a bit extreme, though. Ro. How about we go somewhere else? No, no, no, I'm gonna, you know what, forget it. Forget it. And now you lose that friend.

00:31:29 --> 00:32:01

You lose another friend. And then they look at you from a distance. This guy's getting extreme. This guy's losing it. He won't even drink anymore. He won't even do this anymore. You understand that? Well, that person is losing people. But at the more they that's losing, that young man is losing people. He's gaining Allah. He's working hard to get closer to Allah. Why am I saying this at the end of this code, but because Allah describes where I started in Surah, Allah aka that when they are in the VIP section, they're not getting close to Allah. Allah is pulling them close to him.

00:32:02 --> 00:32:46

They were working in this life to be close to Allah. And Allah's rewarding them on judgment day before even Jana before evangelists Judgment Day. This is judgment a and on Judgment Day, Allah says Allah equal Makara Boone, they're the ones that have been brought close. You put so much work in getting close to me. Now I get to bring you close to me. Subhan, Allah Subhan Allah, this is the reward Allah gives the sabe icon. And this is an opportunity each one of you has in your life I have in my life to be sabich in some sense, to earn Allah's forgiveness in some sense, you know, and, and maybe we don't get there. But even in our attempts to get there, at the very least we're going to

00:32:46 --> 00:33:21

secure the people of the right hand spot, isn't it? So there's nothing to lose only to gain. May Allah azza wa jal make us give us a new sense of commitment to being the first to taking the first courageous step to stop worrying about what people are going to say what they're going to think what their opinions are going to be, who's not going to be your friend anymore, what circle you're not going to be popular in anymore. May Allah let us go of all of those concerns. And all of those closeness is in exchange for the closeness we should have with our rub with Allah azza wa jal May Allah azza wa jal make all of us and our families from among decide between BarakAllahu li Walakum

00:46:10 --> 00:46:10

could be

00:46:12 --> 00:46:21

quickly for both of you can just share with everyone, everyone has to go back to work and so forth quickly. In a few seconds what, what caused you to take this big step in life?

00:46:23 --> 00:46:25

Well, the first thing I would like to say is that

00:46:26 --> 00:47:06

I lead I was my family's not religious so I've came to this, you know, the the mom, you were speaking about how you had to take the step yourself and you have to go down that path. And in a sense, that's what I did. And I was living through life, creating my own rules, creating my own path, and that's not the way you know. And Shawn, you want to share quickly, to keep it simple. I didn't connect with anything as much as I connected with Islam. Mashallah, okay. So I mean, somehow Allah we've talked about this before that Islam is the federal religion. It is the innate human nature religion, that anyone who studies about Islam learns about its simplicity and style in simple

00:47:06 --> 00:47:27

Islam draws them to itself. So this is why from the law we have here, by the way, in Oregon, we've already had so many shudders, and every single time we hear the same thing, the simplicity of Islam, how Islam draws me to its religion, and the Quran, the Quran, how simple it is and so forth, and how straightforward it is. So once again, I do want to tell you both that

00:47:28 --> 00:47:36

first of all, you are in the month of Ramadan, so you're ready to fast fasting Okay, mashallah even already fasting, so,

00:47:38 --> 00:47:40

and then now you're ready for all these hugs.

00:47:42 --> 00:47:53

It's gonna be a little physically draining, but inshallah I'm sure you'll get through it inshallah. But please do Welcome brother Shawn. Brother, Caleb inshallah to Islam does not come alive Hey, somebody completely broke out.

00:47:55 --> 00:47:56

Thank you.
