00:00:19--> 00:00:20

Has

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

in in,

00:00:23--> 00:00:54

in the Happy Valley. Officially suddenly were silly Emery Nakata melissani Ali Al hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah bother Allah, he was happy his marienthal mama bad. The I just recited to you is not in the packet. It's actually something I meant to do later on, but I might as well just introduce the entire concept of leadership with this, with this idea belongs to a sort of use of the story of use of holidays. Usually somebody came out of prison.

00:00:55--> 00:01:02

He came out of prison as a result as a result of interpreting dreams. And when he was brought before the king,

00:01:04--> 00:01:09

not only did he established his innocence, he actually presented his resume.

00:01:11--> 00:01:14

Use advice, I'm actually asked for the job.

00:01:15--> 00:01:37

He wasn't given the job he was he asked for it himself. And he didn't just ask for it. He said, Here's why you should hire me. He said hr lialda, in and out, which basically means literally means install me upon the treasures of the land. What that means, in simplest Simple English is make me the treasurer. I would like to be the treasury secretary of Egypt.

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

And here's why India has even Halim.

00:01:41--> 00:01:49

First of all, our guard this duty, I'll take it seriously. I won't sleep on the job, I won't have lame duck sessions in my Congress,

00:01:51--> 00:01:56

I'm going to be on the job, I'll take care of it. I'll be honest about it. And I know what I'm doing, I leave

00:01:57--> 00:02:12

because the guys around you are a bunch of idiots. They're going to destroy this problem. And it's going to create a fiscal crisis, and people are gonna die. So I need to take care of business. I'm letting you know I'm qualified to handle this.

00:02:13--> 00:02:15

Leadership is about confidence.

00:02:16--> 00:02:19

Leadership is about confidence, too much confidence and you have

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

arrogance.

00:02:22--> 00:03:00

You have too much confidence you have arrogance. That's why before you have leadership, the the discussion we began with today was understanding that you and I are up to Allah slaves to Allah, which is the lowest position you can have. But when you are out of love, and you realize a lot you This is not your talent, Allah has given you certain talents. Allah has given you certain abilities. And it is your God given responsibility as a slave of Allah to use those talents to the best of your ability. And if that means you have to take a position of leadership, well, that means you have to take a position of leadership.

00:03:01--> 00:03:09

if nobody's going to stand up and take the job, you have to take the job. That is not arrogance that is actually being true to what Allah has given you.

00:03:11--> 00:03:55

arrogance is when you are obsessed with holding your title, and you can't let it go. The motivation Yusuf Alayhi Salaam has for leadership is because it's going to save lives, not because he likes treasury secretary, Minister of treasuries, he doesn't like the title. He wants to save lives. That's true leadership, leadership, not for its own sake for the sake of providing a service. If you truly believe you have something to offer in leadership, go for it and some of you, Allah has created you natural born leaders, kids cut class, when you cut class in school, you're a leader. You know, people go to the restaurant that you suggest. They don't go to any other restaurant, you're a

00:03:55--> 00:04:12

leader. Allah has given you that naturally you have a personality is charismatic people listen to you, they do what you say, you have an influence over the opinions of others, you are a leader. And some of you are not leaders. Some of you are extremely good followers. You guys are machines.

00:04:13--> 00:04:31

Amazing. And you know what you should acknowledge that except that is a gift from Allah because the world doesn't just work on leaders. The work needs, the world needs good followers. Some of you are neither leaders nor followers, those of you need to make a lot of SFR. So you'll find yourself

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

okay, because you need to do something

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

you need to fit somewhere, you know. But now now that we have basically the the two qualities that that Yusuf Ali Salaam describes of himself that justify his leadership role or her field and you will guard that responsibility. You will take care of it seriously. And it's something you will protect. And second, you know what you're doing. So sincerity is understood. It's implied. It's

00:05:00--> 00:05:25

You see that if you're a slave of a lesson Saturday doesn't even have to be talked about because it's understood. That's the foundation anywhere for all actions. But on top of that, one, you have a very serious attitude towards the job to you actually know what you're talking about. When it comes to that job, you know what you're talking about. So religious fervor, you're extremely religious, you're extremely righteous, you're extremely pious, you're a half of the Quran, that doesn't mean you're a leader.

00:05:26--> 00:05:33

That does not mean you're a leader. You're an extreme Zahid. You make the offer hours and hours and hours and hours. That does not mean you're a leader.

00:05:34--> 00:05:39

Because leadership requires one seriousness with the job and to knowledge of the job.

00:05:40--> 00:05:49

A Buddha refer to the Allahu anhu was so spiritual that the Prophet compared his spirituality sallallahu wasallam, to the spirituality of an ISA and he said, Can you imagine?

00:05:50--> 00:05:54

wouldn't give him leadership position, though he wouldn't do it.

00:05:55--> 00:06:02

He'd rather give it to Saudi Arabia, because 18 year old kids, a natural leader, is gonna get a leadership position.

00:06:03--> 00:06:16

Because the prophets on saw people for what they're capable of, and that's true leadership, to pick leaders to, to see people with leadership potential and say, Hey, come here, I want the I want you to do this work.

00:06:17--> 00:06:23

allocating talent, that's a quality of leadership, to be able to see this person is good for this, this person is good for that.

00:06:24--> 00:06:45

And put people to work. That's part of management, that's part of leadership, right? People do master's degrees and PhDs in human resource management, and have entire seminars on this stuff. All we have is more than enough to cinnabar messenger sallallahu sallam, what an amazing human resource allocation he did. It's incredible. is a science was abnormal, go to Medina.

00:06:47--> 00:07:04

That's human resource allocation. You know, he says, Okay, this is the lead the slot and praise behind him as producing a leader. That's what our Prophet did are the subtle stuff. But now we get to the tough part, mystical, what's going to take most of our time. You see, in Islamic work,

00:07:05--> 00:07:26

there's a tendency, there's there's two kinds of there's two kinds of support. Please understand this. There's two kinds of support and Islamic work. On the one hand support is your volunteers. That's one kind of support for an organization, its volunteers or support. And the other support is the financial support, the social support the advertising support.

00:07:27--> 00:08:09

Okay, the donors, okay? Or some famous celebrity is going to come visit your organization, it's going to give the organization a boost. Right. So that's different two different kinds of support. In the case of the prophets work, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He's got the Sahaba that says volunteers, those are his volunteers. And then he's hoping if some of the leaders of Quraysh become Muslim, then it will give give Islam a huge boost. Crystal, even one celebrity from Makkah becomes Muslim. It's a big deal. How much help did we get from Omar becoming Muslim for Hamza becoming Muslim was a big deal. Even Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu anhu being Muslim was a big deal. Now, the

00:08:09--> 00:08:10

author from South Africa

00:08:12--> 00:08:38

was there enough sakana Allah de Runa Bahama, Dottie valachi, you read una vida who you remain patient with those who call on their master night and day, they only want his face, they want to see Allah, the Sahaba that are poor, one or the other in our current home, don't allow your eyes to turn away from them. Don't pay attention to the leaders don't get too caught up and I want to get the leaders to become Muslim. The Prophet is being told this.

00:08:39--> 00:08:50

You know why you want to get a leader because the leaders got connections, right? Because the leaders got connections. Allah started this video by saying the Sahaba have a connection with me. That should be enough for you.

00:08:51--> 00:09:32

While arena the owner of the home belladati was the day and night they're connected to me. All they want to see is my face. Those are my people. Don't turn away from them. That's the most valuable asset you have. In other words, don't be impressed with wealth status. And don't think that that will give your organization a boost. Sincere volunteers, sincere workers are the biggest asset you will ever have. Don't overlook it. That's a leader, the leader who values those grunt workers that aren't famous that aren't rich, but they are ready to give every bit of their effort for you. You appreciate them, why not do it. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if he pays attention to

00:09:32--> 00:09:47

you, you have to understand this carefully. Because we're not learning about the Prophet as a prophet right now are the subtle so we're learning about the Prophet as a leader. As a leader, specifically, as a leader, your job is very sensitive, you might not even realize it. People are always looking at you.

00:09:48--> 00:09:51

And people have a lot of emotional attachment to you.

00:09:52--> 00:09:57

So if the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam pays too much attention to the wealthy.

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

The Sahaba might start feeling

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

unimportant.

00:10:01--> 00:10:05

I mean we're here, but those are the really important people.

00:10:06--> 00:10:12

And if that feeling sets inside them that we are less valuable and they are more valuable, the work is finished.

00:10:13--> 00:10:24

The work is gone. When they start feeling the profit has more admiration and value for the rich for the powerful for the the IMF, and he has less for us. It's finished.

00:10:26--> 00:10:42

And to protect and the province is on didn't even do that. He didn't even give that impression, but alive, so worried about the morale of the Sahaba that he is very, very tough with the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam when it comes to even maybe possibly giving that impression.

00:10:43--> 00:10:49

So much so that the IRS has to redo Xena tell hayati dunia. You want the beauty of worldly life?

00:10:52--> 00:11:17

Allah is talking to his messenger. What is the messenger want, he doesn't want kingdom. He doesn't want rule. He wants Islam to win in this world. But the way Allah said it is because of lies warning His Messenger because the messenger standards are really high. So a lot more audio setup. The same thing happens in Sugata abasa. A blind Sahabi For God's sake, he's blind. So when the Prophet found some along on his own, he can't see it.

00:11:19--> 00:11:37

If I frown at you, you can see it he looks kind of upset. How is a blind Sahabi going to know that the Prophet is frowning? Is he going to be offended? He didn't offend his feelings, but the standards of leadership are so high. Even the remotest possibility that you might make them feel unimportant will not go unnoticed.

00:11:39--> 00:12:04

What are we learning the Sunnah of the Prophet slicin as a leader and the Sunnah of a lot of to perfect his leadership, are they hisako salam is that you give the highest regard to your volunteers. The ones you think are the most insignificant even. They have socially no backing financially, they're not very rich. All they have to offer you is their sincerity and they're they're asked to Allah. That's it. Those are your most important assets.

00:12:05--> 00:12:22

When not to terramin alpha alpha one D cleaner. And let me tell you about the other guy you're trying to impress. Don't follow the one whose heart We have emptied out of remembrance we've made him heedless of our remembrance. What about how Alfaro follows his his desires, the leaders are worthless, they're not worth anything, don't worry about them.

00:12:23--> 00:12:40

Then look, Allah azza wa jal says, I love this I have so much sort of hatred, when I called it NACA sub aminomethyl. And he will put on an album, we have given you seven highly praised ones. And we've given you the great quote on meeting the Fatiha and of Ron,

00:12:41--> 00:12:45

when Adam would deny matana he has been home.

00:12:47--> 00:13:08

Don't let your eyes turn to what we've facilitated than some groups among them. Don't turn to their wealth, don't look at their wealth. Don't look at their strength. Don't look at their status. before Allah even told the provinces on don't look at their wealth. Don't look at their status. Don't look at what they have. Don't look at elite status. What did he tell him first, I've given you Quran

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

you shouldn't look for anything else.

00:13:13--> 00:13:25

I've given you Fatiha and the great Quran, your I shouldn't go anywhere else. It's such an amazing, amazing column from a large religion. Well not to terminal and then he says walk filled the gender haka

00:13:27--> 00:13:42

was filled you can even tell me, you know, half of Allahu Jana who in the Arabic language is a bird lowering its wings, it's used for parents. When you're humble to your appearance, the prophet is told, be humble to the Sahaba that are following you.

00:13:44--> 00:14:09

The Prophet is told to be humble, and is to Salaam to the Sahaba please hear me it's not incorrect English. I didn't say the companions have to be humble to the Prophet, unlike commanded His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be humble to the followers, the man who kameena meaning whoever follows you from among the believers, be extremely humble to them, be appreciative of them. Han Allah

00:14:11--> 00:14:15

is the command of Allah to His Messenger, to be humbled to his companions.

00:14:17--> 00:14:24

Don't look anywhere else. These are the people you have to be the best to what do we find in our leadership? I mean, you Saab is yelling at everybody.

00:14:25--> 00:14:27

He gets mad people are scared to talk to him.

00:14:29--> 00:14:33

He's intimidating. He's not a friend. Certainly not humble.

00:14:34--> 00:14:37

Certainly not friendly, certainly not approachable.

00:14:38--> 00:14:47

That's not the cinnabar prophet or the santosa by Allah his mandate and it's not once Allah said this twice, walk fifth Gen Africa even Toby our camino meaning

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

lower your wingsuit to shoot again. Humble your wings before whoever follows you among the believers way now Soca and if they disobey you. Anybody who didn't tell him I have nothing to do with what you do.

00:15:00--> 00:15:11

So long as you are with me, I will be the humblest to you. And if you leave my mission, I will say I have nothing to do with you. Somehow Allah, I'm not going to be an authoritative figure over you. I'm not going to do that.

00:15:13--> 00:15:32

This is such a hard thing to understand, to internalize. But then the jewel of it all, this is the one I want to spend the most time on. If you understand this ayah I personally believe if a person understands this next ayah and Emraan then they understand what it means to be a leader in Islam. This This one is says it all. So

00:15:33--> 00:15:40

number 159. This is the last discussion we're having Furby ma met him in a law

00:15:41--> 00:16:03

then it is by some incredible mercy from Allah. Allah azza wa jal says in the Arabic language, he doesn't say Fabiola meet. Fabiola met him in Allah by the mercy of Allah. No, he added the word Mark we say my job, what incredible unimaginable mercy it is from Allah in grammar, they say Allah, Allah zeda

00:16:04--> 00:16:17

what unimaginable mercy of a lie It is especially his that you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I lenient towards them. You are leaning into whom you are lenient towards them.

00:16:18--> 00:16:25

You know the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam had deep love for his uncle, deep love for his uncle Hamza. On the other hand, when

00:16:27--> 00:16:34

I when I was at malaria, watch a farmer. He took us on a tour, he went to Ohio, then he walked us through the entire battle.

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

You know what happened at Ohio?

00:16:37--> 00:16:42

There are some Sahaba there are some Sahaba whose haste

00:16:43--> 00:17:30

you could even call it an innocent mistake. There's one reading of history where you can call it an innocent mistake, led to several Muslim lives, including who comes out the uncle of the Prophet Hassan, bloody Allahu taala he shaved 70 great, Sahaba Arusha Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is knocked out, his two falls out. His mouth is filled with blood. There's a rumor spread that he's been killed. Though Muslims are giving up on the battlefield then finally he gets up and then they have to make a humiliating retreat up the mountain is to say donata lunala hadn't won rasuluh yet. Canfield rock when you were climbing up and not even turning back to see anybody is

00:17:30--> 00:17:37

that humiliating or watch? And the messenger is calling you from behind you for our sobre como mambilla Michaela so Allah

00:17:39--> 00:17:46

then Allah hit you with calamity on top of calamity, one on top of the other. This was a catastrophe.

00:17:47--> 00:17:49

So when it's all over?

00:17:50--> 00:18:03

Does the Prophet have a right sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be mad at those few archers that left their post? Does he have a right to be angry? These Sahaba must be feeling the guilt of their life.

00:18:05--> 00:18:16

The Prophet almost got killed his beloved uncle is gone 70 of the gracias a battle that was one has just been lost. He should be extremely upset now they're waiting the Prophet is going to come and talk to us.

00:18:18--> 00:18:26

Can you imagine the fear they must have had after that meeting with little salsa Lola on your cell phone and before the meet the messenger meets with them.

00:18:27--> 00:18:29

Allah has a meeting with the messenger

00:18:31--> 00:18:34

before he meets with them, a lot of reveals to him wait.

00:18:35--> 00:18:47

It is by the special Mercy of Allah lint Allah whom you are lenient towards them. Linda comes from the word lean in Arabic. And lean means a soft date.

00:18:48--> 00:18:59

You are soft towards them. You know, there's some could you eat it and it's like a rock. And there's like the Medina date. You really just melts in your mouth. It's lean.

00:19:00--> 00:19:17

You are so lenient towards them. The Prophet is about to go and express his frustrations and Allah says it is a special mercy, an unimaginable gift from God, that you are incredibly lenient towards these people, towards which people the ones that you deserve to be angry at.

00:19:18--> 00:19:24

Not just because they failed some little tiny tasks you gave them they cost Muslim lives.

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

They were given explicit orders.

00:19:28--> 00:19:31

They cost the life of your beloved uncle is not something small.

00:19:32--> 00:19:36

You have all the right to be mad when Eliza doesn't even say that.

00:19:38--> 00:19:41

doesn't begin like that. No, this is a special mercy that you're so nice to them.

00:19:42--> 00:19:46

You're so lenient towards them. Well, I wouldn't have been

00:19:47--> 00:19:51

and if you were tough, from harsh

00:19:52--> 00:19:54

from Arabic and evil,

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

insensitive of the heart, Connie's been so hard that nothing penetrates little

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

toughness, nothing should penetrate. So whatever excuses they make won't go inside your heart. If you were tough, hard hearted, if you were insensitive, harsh, mean, scolding, angry when you met with them. If you did that, then boom in Holic infobar By the way, Arabic class in fire Allah And finally we are informed by an algo. In Cuba that's irregular. In fidlock. Do you know what it means to this English translation says to disperse, but let me tell you it's something so much more beautiful in philosophy Arabic is used when you take a Sujata a glass and you break it, and the glass goes in every direction. the spreading of the glass when it breaks, that's enfilade.

00:20:44--> 00:21:06

And this is used to describe the running away of the Sahaba. Learning fabu they would have dispersed and by the way, when a glass breaks and spreads, can you recover it or no? So they will, they would have run away in a way that they would have never come back. Now, I want you to think about this for a second. Who are we talking about? We're talking about the people who laid down their lives for Islam.

00:21:08--> 00:21:26

They believed in the Quran, they knew its miracle in its original language they had full imagine that this is the hub. And Allah says about that Greatest Generation. He says if you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the leader was mean, they would have run away even if it's the truth.

00:21:27--> 00:21:29

Even if it's the hub, the the best generation would have run away.

00:21:31--> 00:21:33

It's a special Mercy of Allah, you're so nice.

00:21:35--> 00:21:36

As leadership,

00:21:38--> 00:21:52

that's the expectation of leadership. And if you can't be nice, you can't be that merciful, especially at the time when you're supposed to be angry. This is not just bro, I'm usually nice, but they made me really upset. They made you more upset than the archers that are.

00:21:54--> 00:22:09

Really, why did they do? Did they leave their posts from the roof of the machine? What do they do? Why are you so angry? Because when the prophets iserlohn had the right to be that angry, where he himself almost got killed? That angry

00:22:11--> 00:22:18

that the work of Islam almost came to an end. The mission almost failed. That angry Allah says you should be nice to them.

00:22:19--> 00:22:33

You shouldn't be harsh to them. They'll run away from you. Then they will run away from you the Sahaba whatever annoys me, and he doesn't even say boo mink, Yolanda boomin how like they wouldn't be anywhere near you. They'd go away away from you.

00:22:34--> 00:22:36

This mavala Raphael Cara

00:22:38--> 00:22:57

and what should you do before you meet with them? Unless esta has messenger let me orient you this is what you do for foreign home. lovingly forgive them. lovingly part of them first thing you go and say to them, it's okay. Gladly hotel. It's okay. Don't worry about it. I got nothing against you. So

00:22:59--> 00:23:15

first you tell before they even apologize. He didn't Allah didn't reveal an ayah to the Sahaba saying like you know, he revealed an ayah about the Sahaba about spoon feed Allah Khan is akinola home, he stalks it when they when they're told to make a stir fry

00:23:17--> 00:23:30

You know, when they're asked to make forgiveness when they're asked to make their artwork to messenger, you know, to make for instance or for them to turn their heads. Allah did not reveal an ayah in this passage telling the Sahaba they should ask for forgiveness.

00:23:31--> 00:23:45

rather he revealed an i O to the Prophet the leader some a long time you go forgive them. And when you're done forgiving them so Lola Hanyu salon, you're gonna go make them out on your own by yourself and private was still failed. Oh my god, Allah forgives them to

00:23:47--> 00:24:27

not only do you forgive them, when you're by yourself, make to offer them that will be proof that you forgive them because it's very hard for you to be by yourself, making the offer yourself and make the offer somebody you're angry at. You can't do it. But you're a leader. You have to make the offer your people, the ones that made you that man, you have to make SFR for them and that is absolutely private. It is not public. It is not the Sahaba standing, they're embarrassed and the province is that I'm sitting in front of everybody May Allah forgive you. That's okay. fatawa, Kerala, then place your trust in Allah in the law you have our Killeen, no doubt Allah loves those

00:24:27--> 00:24:35

who places their trust in Him. This last part critical. The prophet SAW Selim is the best decision maker that ever lived on the face of this earth.

00:24:37--> 00:24:43

And in this ayah Allah gave it even though you should take consultation at the end of the day, you have the right to make your decision.

00:24:44--> 00:24:50

But you messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam still will not trust your own decision, you will trust me.

00:24:52--> 00:24:53

Put your trust in Allah.

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

At the end of the day, whatever decisions we make, we don't know if they're good or bad. Even the messenger is not allowed to know if it's

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

Good or bad?

00:25:01--> 00:25:05

You put your trust in Allah. Allah loves those who put their trust in him

00:25:06--> 00:25:16

that the everytime shooter comes up what keeps coming up, though awkward. So to Shura wild Amitabha calm the IRA before over here she would I came up the vocal came up

00:25:17--> 00:25:56

every time there is some relationship between giving opinion and trusting Allah. Allah is teaching us give your opinion based on your knowledge based on your experience based on your sincerity, but you don't rely on your opinion and success will not come because of your opinion and failure will not come because your opinion was not followed. success and failure will come from Allah azza wa jal, you're only Reliance's to Allah. That's a heavy lesson to learn. This is the leadership of the Prophet RNA, subtlest, sensitive, concerned about the feelings, the Sahaba didn't even come and see anything a lot attended to their feelings for the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, that these are the

00:25:56--> 00:26:02

qualities we have to instill in ourselves, every member of our household here, every head of a household is a leader.

00:26:03--> 00:26:06

This doesn't just apply when you're the general and you have soldiers underneath you

00:26:08--> 00:26:32

is when you're a dad, when you're a husband. This is when you're the older brother, you have siblings under you. When you're a grandfather, when you're a father in law and a mother in law. This applies to you too, when you're the Imam of the masjid when you're the teacher at the Sunday school when you're a teacher at the you know in the Arabic class, this applies to you too. It's hard. Oh boy, there are some students that make you mad.

00:26:34--> 00:26:48

They will boil your blood and if you if you believe in this, then you have to go make a lot and make up for them. Not do it by never been Oh, Allah give me a long distance between me and them.

00:26:50--> 00:26:52

Make dua for them. The one that made you mad.

00:26:53--> 00:27:36

The one that messed you up mean to offer them Islamic school teachers? Listen up. There are kids that are that crawl under your skin? Oh 4444 Yeah, that kid you know, there's a picture that came in your head. If your Islamic school teacher, one child's picture just came in your head immediately. And he's looking at you winking like right now. That one big doll for that kid? Not in front of me. May Allah help you, you May Allah not make you the shape on that you're becoming sound like that. In your own privacy you make offer them, maybe offer them that these are the this actually, I like I said before, and hopefully you see now how this is the Golden Eye of leadership. The Golden Eye of

00:27:36--> 00:27:45

leadership leadership in crisis situation. That's when leadership has proven when there's a crisis. That's what leadership is proven when you're when your followers didn't follow you.

00:27:47--> 00:27:51

Easy to call yourself a leader when everything's going fine. There's everything has gone wrong.

00:27:52--> 00:28:33

Now what do you do as a leader, then you turn to Allah is guidance, then you learn that so we have to be people have confidence. People have competence, people of reliance on Allah, and people have the utmost like mercy and courtesy to those that we are leading in any way, shape or form. I sincerely pray that Allah azza wa jal guide all of us in all of the Islamic endeavors, all of these Sonic projects, all of the organizations, whether they're charity organizations, or their umbrella organizations, or their must use organizations, or relief organizations, or youth organizations, or college organizations, whatever organization I even argue this can be applied in your businesses.

Well there are people have families they're good people they have good intentions. Shake on causes dissent among us. That's why we need this orientation over and over again. Now one time over and over again so we can fix our intentions and mend those ties. If you've had a fight with somebody in an organization go give him a hug, apologize and say let's start over.
