So now I want to come up with a lot here but a cat. So welcome back to prayers of the pious.

00:00:08--> 00:00:49

A lot of times when you're looking at the pious you're waiting for a name. But sometimes the most pious people go unknown in this world, and in fact can impress those who are known for their piety. This is a particular incident that took place in the lifetime of one of the greatest scholars of hadith of all time and imams of Fianna thodi Haman lontana. So if you're under 30 says that one day I was sitting in the masjid between the prayer supplicating to Allah and reciting the remembrances of a loss of Hannah Montana. And he said, I paid attention to this unknown man that was calling upon a loss of Hannah hoods ad. And he said, he made this drought that stuck with me for the rest of my

So this is one of those documents that we can make as well. Oh, a lot. Do not forbid us from the good that you have for the evil that we have. We depend fully on your

00:02:11--> 00:02:27

mercy. We ask a lot to forgive us and to show mercy upon us and to not let our sins or our shortcomings disqualify us from that mercy in this life or the next law. I mean, Zack malachite on and shout lots out. I will see you next time. Sit down when he comes to law, he will better catch up
