are officially live on YouTube and Facebook. If you guys are hearing us from YouTube and Facebook, please say your salaams let us know. Actually I have to tell you I was watching the Johnny Johnny death trial on YouTube on my phone. So I'm just going to quickly pop over to the mother page to make sure that we are live there as well and we are Al Hamdulillah the unwavering believers with Imam Wisam Sharif does Aquila fair to my anonymous helper you are good to go now just like alifair for helping us out today. But at hamdulillah we're ready to kick off our Ramadan 360 Day and number 24 session I mentioned before Imam Hassan was the one who started us off he was in the first week of

00:00:38--> 00:01:14

Ramadan 360 On our third day and you guys were not ready those who didn't hadn't, hadn't hadn't had not had a chance to interact with him. You're never going to be ready for him I'm with some Sharif, masha Allah he's bigger than life Subhan Allah and he is an amazing, amazing addition to be a mother of family he actually leaves the Qur'an revolution program that we have. That's why I was asking if anybody was a grand revolution student and I actually miss your responses here in the chat on Zoom. So I'm going to scroll up because I know Dr. Gina mashallah is the crowd revolution MVP. So I would like to pick on you to recite for us a lot to him that Allah and I see Samia coming in from QR Shan

00:01:14--> 00:01:31

mean brother of their man, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. That's awesome to see who else was there? I'm missing a few names here. So Mia, also from QR, that's beautiful. Hamdulillah. I am I like to say one of the poorest QR students there is out there because I've been in QR what, three years ago.

00:01:32--> 00:02:07

But Alhamdulillah I don't know if I mentioned to you guys previously, but I used to have a very tumultuous relationship with the Quran. Especially because, you know, I think everyone has their own story, right. And especially if you're not a native Arabic speaker, yet some way some point you had an Islam you had a grand teacher, and bless the Quran teachers who put up with us kids learning for the first time and but you know, the amount of patients that they have Subhanallah but my teacher growing up with someone overseas that I would learn through from Skype. And I had just a really hard time I'm a perfectionist, I put a lot of pressure on myself when I was reading. So like, honestly, I

00:02:07--> 00:02:39

had like when I thought on I thought a stress, this is the most stressful time of my day is getting on Skype with this teacher and I would dread it, and I would put it off and I'd pretend to be asleep. So my mom was like, Oh, she's sleeping, don't wanna wake her up. And he was at the sauna. He was a really amazing patient person, but I just did not enjoy that, that that connection, unfortunately, at that young age, and I was the last of my siblings, my younger siblings started memorizing they started going, you know, like, you know, going down that route Mashallah. And I was the last I was the eldest in the last to actually start complete my full resuscitation of the grant.

00:02:39--> 00:03:09

And I used to stutter a lot in before I used to stutter in English, I got over that as a child. But then when I started reciting Quran, I stutter really, really badly. So basically, the All this to say is that I had a really poor relationship in terms of just my excitement or my interest in reciting Quran at all. When I finished it, I was like, Hollis, I'm done. This is me for life. I'm like I did it once that was checkmark done. And then obviously, you grew up and you realize the importance of reciting the Quran and how important it is for your deen and how your connection to Allah and it's one of the most important relationships that you have. But I never ever felt that

00:03:09--> 00:03:19

connection. Even to this day, I still struggle, that that's the one thing I'm investing the most of my energy in fixing, because it's the one thing that I struggle with, in terms of my practice, oh, I just realized I'm still in gallery view, because I love seeing everyone's faces.

00:03:20--> 00:03:54

Sorry for those who are in social media. But long story short, the first time that I actually felt excited about reciting, and the first time I actually like, close my eyes and enjoyed it was during a session with my mom was the senator if I think we had it in person, though. It was in Mississauga, as much as I give to Mississauga, it was in Mississauga, Alhamdulillah. And that was like the most my, like mind blowing experience I ever had. Because for me, it was like something that you sit through, and you have to kind of like get through a certain number of pages, and you just stutter through and you're miserable. And it's just such a tough time. And, and hamdulillah ever since then,

00:03:54--> 00:04:26

I don't even know about her and revolution, then I found out about it later. It's been such a journey and such a blessing to experience her and in a way that you're actually like perfecting you're building upon your skills, you have a community that's excited about it, there's no judgement, you start at whatever level that you're comfortable at, you get to build and even if you're a bad student, like me humble, you get a lot of support. And and you get to see yourself evolve into to grow and to become a completely different receptor than you started. So that's been the best thing that's probably happened to my relationship with the Quran. And we'll tell you a

00:04:26--> 00:04:58

little bit more about it. But I don't think he meant was I'm sure if anyone knows any of this, even though I talked to him on a regular basis. I don't think I've ever mentioned this part of the story and hamdulillah so I encourage you guys, those of you who have never heard of it, or those of you who are you know, have spent years and just open it and are the same place that they were maybe in in 2015 or in 2018 or in 2020 and it's just a process for you and you're just accepted that this is where you're at in life. Subhan Allah do not accept anything but the best in terms of your relationship with the Quran and tick Elgar and evolution. We'll talk more about it later on. But I

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

do want to enter that because Imam was much

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

Allah is the kind of is the backbone of that entire program and he's the one who's made it all possible. Sorry man was Sam I said we'd start on time here we are six minutes later I said I'm on a going on with the life of Attica to how're you doing today? Wa alaykum wa salaam wa Rahmatullah I am doing fantastic. Hops. I did not know that story. I haven't noted to you. So panela No, she has not and Hafsa

00:05:23--> 00:05:29

Mississauga would have meant grand revolution probably didn't even exist back then. Oh, no, wait.

00:05:31--> 00:06:05

I'm thinking I'll Hooda we were at Ohio. Yes, it was. I was a volunteer at that time. And then so and it is it's very measurable, a consumable How much do we do and that whole tour was was very much waking people up to what the Quran did originally, it really did reveal itself on people. So had a lot actually I remember I bought tickets for all my cousins to come because they were visiting from the US it was such a pleasant experience of hon Allah and I didn't even know like, it didn't even connect to me until a while later. I was like that was my introduction to him. I was

00:06:09--> 00:06:21

I had a question for you have said though, and this is really genuinely as a as our admin and as kind of as the DJ you you choose the track here. We have a topic in front of us about,

00:06:22--> 00:06:49

about the topic that I'm prepared, except to have so you you tantalized me with something about we're gonna talk about Jana, we're talking about paradise. And I have this. There's a very famous Hadith about the last person to enter paradise. It's a lengthy Hadith, but it's Hadith 1883 of Rio Salado Hain I wanted to know what your professional opinion was because I want to go

00:06:50--> 00:07:29

let's take a detour. Let's go for that. Insha Allah. Absolutely. Allahu Akbar Oh Kabira so with your permission, you let me know what what time will we like to bring this in? Because it's a it's full Hadith but you tell me Do we have till the 30th Minute approximately? Is that fair? Shot Allah Yes. Let's kick off the day. We have our start. We're going to completely do tour inshallah. We'll change the title on YouTube later. And we'll start whispering that day number 24. A roll on 360 Shout out to the amazing people who make it possible really quickly. HH rd in the US Islamic Relief in Canada and forgotten women in the UK. Isn't that let's kick it off. As salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi

00:07:29--> 00:08:19

Wabarakatuh has to be Allahu La ilaha illa Who are they hit our Cal towards war Ebola, our Silla Azim today, many times we we have a schedule. Today I am asking if you would join me as SR Meriam placed in the chat box. Because many of us there's so many ways to come at this but let me give you an introduction. Are we not spending these last 10 days of Ramadan? Allahumma Jaya nomina Na, me, Marisa and family of Singapore wouldn't you're you're saying oh God saved me from the Hellfire right? For 10 days. Singapore is saying Don't send me to hell Meriam thank you for the Hadith. Oma Ibrahim is saying oh Allah saved me from the Hellfire saved me from the Hellfire that's a slot

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

machine gesture making a metaphor here.

00:08:23--> 00:09:01

Would you not then spend sister Gina fair dosa and family would you not then spend 355 days thinking about Jana? Here? Those are 10 days Johanna? I'm Johanna. I'm John Johanna Johanna, but for 355 days shouldn't be Jana, Jana, Jana, Jana, Jana. So many times, we have not spent as Professor abraham hicks points out a minimum of 17 seconds visualizing fantasizing daydreaming about a perspective.

00:09:02--> 00:09:52

Would you spend 17 minutes on the perspective that because Allah is awesome, not because you're sucky? Because Allah is awesome. I will enter paradise. Because Allah azza wa jal is so magnanimous purpose, perfect in all ways. I will enter paradise. Who cares how much sin raffia can do was this was this a? Like, excuse me, like who could go to the bathroom the longest? Like really? This is not how much sinful can I be? So Syrah and Omair of New York? Would you entertain for a moment? Amen. That because God is awesome, Amir goes to Jana. Now most of us, Amir

00:09:53--> 00:09:57

Manila, if I'm correct from Denmark Salaams to you friend.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

The

00:10:00--> 00:10:14

idea of Jannah is very far off because Oh How could I ever go to paradise? If you would for a moment all the way from Kuala Lumpur to Salim Huck in Houston? Would everyone for a moment

00:10:15--> 00:10:32

would you plug in to the avatar of the last person who goes to paradise? Is that fair? Can we do that? From Florida? Rugged rugged and family if we could do that down there Fatima Barak Lo Fi comm so for a moment

00:10:34--> 00:10:36

Yes, Grand revolution student Barack Lo Fi comm

00:10:38--> 00:10:45

Manila I got it right right. Just give me a thumbs up Yes, yes, they did. Ground revolution student okay, no plug but Hello.

00:10:46--> 00:11:35

Friends speaking of paradise, grand revolution.com. Speaking of paradise, Paradise, for tomorrow, I want you to come to Hadith 1883 Meriam of the UK has already placed it in the chat box. It is one Hadith what we are going to do is use it as a platform and from there, we're going to branch out into ayat of the Quran. And we're going to branch out into other Hadith talking about the entrance into paradise. Are you with me friends? So Amir, you have 1883 from sunnah.com or something you have the Hadith. It is sound we are going to read the Hadith and during the during the GPS Google tour. I'm going to stop and say according to this hadith, this will happen here. I just need a visual

00:11:35--> 00:11:59

thumbs up because some people lose their brain but brother it's not in the Hadith. Like do you watch Do you read the whole comic book or just one section? You read the whole thing. Okay, thank you. With that disclaimer, Hadith 1883 a description of the last person to enter paradise starts by movie immune shorba movie REBNY shorba

00:12:01--> 00:12:22

asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who is the final person. Excuse me. I was a biller. But evil daddy and if we could hold the chat back just for a moment, I know it's gonna be difficult, but I'll try. I'll try not to look at chatbots Here we go. Because now we're narrating Hadith and there is a formality in that

00:12:24--> 00:12:57

more creative Nisha Alba is narrated in Hadith 1883 of riada Salah Hain to narrate a conversation. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Musa the Salatu was Salam asked Allah azza wa jal Mohammed ignition Shabazz said the Prophet peace be upon him said Musa Ali Salatu was Salam asked Allah, ma Adena Lulu Jannetty man Zilla ma Adena Jannati man Zilla

00:12:58--> 00:13:29

who will be the last. If you want an exact who will be the furthest person to enter paradise. We pause here to then recognize it will be a person. This person will be the last person to enter paradise we pause at the beginning, Musa alayhis salam ask God who will be the last person to enter paradise and God full pause in a few Hadith forward here.

00:13:30--> 00:14:22

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaks about a person who's flinx Their love handles to the back of their thigh, I want you to imagine they sat in a seat of fire. So from the love handled to the back of the knee, back of the knee is all burned. There is a narration that this will be the last person to enter paradise. Can anyone fill in the gap? Will there be people who enter Hellfire serve their time? And come out to the Jannah? Yes, indeed. May we be not amongst those but the last person who in my interpretation with these other three Hadith has gone to hell, or at least waited on the bus to go to hell and then we don't know what his situation was. This person now, according

00:14:22--> 00:14:50

to Hadith, of 1883, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is conversation from Musa alayhis salam and Allah Allah azza wa jal says, it will be a person who comes to Allah and Allah will say, oh son of Adam, what will please you there is one word I want you to write down and it's the hook of this whole Hadith. And that is please repeat it after me. Rodley to raw Lee to

00:14:51--> 00:14:58

Yarra be, probably to Yara be Rodley to era be

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

so

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

upon all of this narration, the last person to enter paradise whether he has gone to hell or not gone to hell is standing in front of God.

00:15:08--> 00:15:10

God says to this person,

00:15:12--> 00:15:32

what will please you several narrations now bringing from the books of Muslim. The man says, In the books of Muslim have said, the man says, Oh Allah, I would be satisfied leaning against the wall of Jannah. Allah allows the man to sit against the wall and the man leans against the wall and goes

00:15:35--> 00:15:48

and he sits there long enough. If you're sitting by the wall of Jana, what are you going to hear? So the man gets up in the narration and says, I hear the singing and dancing of Jana.

00:15:49--> 00:16:03

I hear the singing and the goblets, cheering and the toasts happening. Oh Allah what's going on in the inside of this wall? And Allah will ask what will please you, Oh, son of Adam.

00:16:04--> 00:16:12

And when he sat by the wall, he said Rodley to Yara be I am satisfied.

00:16:13--> 00:17:12

So Allah azza wa jal back to Hadith 1883 says to this man enter paradise. And he says to the man, here is your place in Jannah. I can explain you'll see it there in 1883. Is he extended a deed? A title is God saying, you get a kingdom? And so Allah azza wa jal says, Oh, son of Adam, how would you be pleased or satisfied? If I give you a kingdom of the greatest king of the earth? And what do you think he says, really to rugby, rally to Yarra? He says, I am satisfied. If you look directly in 1883, he then is extended one kingdom and Allah azza wa jal says, were made through who, who are Miss Liu, who will miss through, walk me through who who are me through

00:17:13--> 00:17:44

and I exponentially multiply it, and I exponentially multiply it, and I exponentially multiply. Please look in the Arabic the word is repeated five times, not five times more. One Kingdom multiplied by another kingdom and the exponent of that, and the exponent of that, and the man upon receiving 5x Five kingdoms to the power of five. What does he say to his Lord?

00:17:46--> 00:18:47

redly to Yara be hall I am satisfied. And right after this, could you read me the word after he's Allah azza wa jal says walk me through who were me through who five times. Allah azza wa jal says according to this hadith, we'll miss Liu who are Shara and I multiply that by 10. Exponential five times 1050 kingdoms of the greatest king of this world for the burnt bomb guy of this dunya 50 kingdoms later the man says relief to ya Robbie. I am satisfied really to your rugby I am satisfied if you could pause here without taking a single step into paradise. Could you now say Oh ALLAH next time you asked me to do something I am satisfied. Oh Allah next time you asked me for a Fajr or

00:18:47--> 00:18:53

maybe read Quran or maybe be more positive about my destination as Jana.

00:18:56--> 00:19:52

You ready to Yara be Hi I'm satisfied. But wait, then the final person because there's a very key part you then have to zoom the lens out tremendously. The festivities of Jana Allah reciting Quran Mohammed said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addressing the committee, the singing hooting, there are certain routine according to the Hadith. We got to fast forward but we got to stop for a second. Sister Hafsa on the Day of Judgment, after the last person has entered paradise and settled in their spot, the festivities the heat Be Our Guest of Jannah will begin and a part of that Hafsa is Allah azza wa jal will ask Ridwan, a caretaker of Jana to remove a curtain between us and Him.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

We will gaze upon Allah subhanaw taala and I know that that's very overwhelming but to kind of give you a middle

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

like put a GoPro on the side Hafsa that singing entertainment of Jana goes to the Throne of Allah and starts to complain.

00:20:12--> 00:20:13

Oh Allah

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

You created us to entertain them and they do nothing but look at you.

00:20:23--> 00:20:25

So the last person enters paradise

00:20:26--> 00:20:56

when they go to their place, narrations tell us that the person will begin walking and also feel how am I walking? How do I know where to go? And the people of Jana will say, Amen your feet know their home. You will never need GPS and Jana your feet know their home so you enter a gate and you're like up to do yellow brick road. How do I know this GPS? Aleta?

00:20:57--> 00:21:25

We understand from further Hadith that once you get to we all understand you'll have multiple homes, multiple mansions, cliffside mansions, do we understand like castles in the sky? Very much like the movie Avatar that there are full structures just floating there you will have palaces in the sky. But almost I'm here the fourth day, the fourth day of your paradise, the entering house.

00:21:26--> 00:22:12

So they had family. The how what do we call this the guesthouse? I don't know. The hadith says that you will have a house at the entrance of your property, but to call it a house. And this house has four windows. If you jot down the idea that each one of these windows, like a French window with a big awning that you could sit on. There are four such Windows when you enter your house. First thing we have to recognize that when you enter your home, the journey from the front door of your home to the back door of your home is very long. Some narration say it's 40 days other narration say could take 40 years in this world. But please bear with me because it gets so proof of service at some

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

point.

00:22:14--> 00:23:09

Sister Hafsa and to my friends, when you go to the front door to the back door you will be able to see but every time you take a step your house will continue to expand. I think you get it so somebody could say my house is 40 It's so big. No the house in Jana, you'll see the front and the back. But when you step it's vast. So it's vastness will be able you'll say Wow, it's so big. But as you walk it's organic nature will move I believe that you're starting to touch it. There was way back May Allah forgive us. A Robin Williams movie called when What Dreams May Come have said the premise of the movie is Robin Williams dies and goes to heaven. And the depiction of paradise Hafsa

00:23:09--> 00:24:02

is nothing short to an endless painting being painted as you live in it. It was it's just this the it's just one and here's the best part. And Jana is better than that. Because we'll get to it we'll get to it. So, we leave that there What Dreams May Come and if you may each one of these windows has a function except this one window on the fourth wall on the right side only has one function. Have sir, I will ask I will speak through you as a conduit as a star a light because this can be overwhelming for most people. And for whatever reasons. The people in the masjid narrated this to us as children. Intense intense experience that the fourth window on the right side of the wall has one

00:24:02--> 00:24:55

function and that function is depending on your status in paradise to see Allah subhanaw taala the function as some of us will see Allah once a day, some of us will see Allah five times a day and the narration just to kind of create some ambience. Have sir is that and Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Taala on will see Allah alone. Every day, everyone we'll see Eliza Joe by looking at his throne in His Majesty, and some will see Allah from their window different times of their day. But the status of certain companions ie Abubaker Radi Allahu dadan will be such that he sees Allah in private. Now, I don't know enough metaphysics to even understand what in private means. But now I think you're

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

starting to go to a whole nother level. When you record

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

ignites Jana, and the last person gets 50 kingdoms of the greatest rapper to ever live a lie.

00:25:10--> 00:25:17

Are you willing to toss it up for 30 seconds of acknowledgement of like, of pleasure?

00:25:18--> 00:25:43

I don't know. But I would like to say one thing. Musa alayhis salam was not in done there. So if you continue reading the Hadith and you're stuck in paradise, wait, because we are enough how many people are like this is awesome. Allah is amazing. Musa alayhis salam in the next word of the Hadith goes. So what about the first person to enter paradise? And here's where it gets

00:25:45--> 00:26:12

complex friends. I never understood this Huff's. I studied this hadith with our teachers, I would like to say for better part of seven eight years of Sir and to narrate like this took a decade to say. I've set a very interesting scenario the way Musa alayhis salam asks Allah subhanho wa Taala What about the first the last person gets this? What is the first person get? Allah azza wa jal says to Moses on a Salatu was Salam.

00:26:14--> 00:26:19

They will have what everybody else has in paradise.

00:26:20--> 00:26:21

Can we do like a road runner?

00:26:23--> 00:26:23

What

00:26:25--> 00:26:35

when for those are and Gina are in like level seven levels did you guys you guys are chilling. And Sister Gina goes a unicorn

00:26:36--> 00:26:46

who? Who can do this? Okay, so Gina gets her unicorn and no joke the person in the top Jana for dosa. What did they find?

00:26:48--> 00:27:07

Where does the random unicorn come from? We're gonna put this unicorn and then the house comes from the unicorns everything friends. The last person Okay, who ordered a unicorn that was the best line of the day. Aloha mommy Oh yonder to Gouda so you're gonna look at his standards like Amazon Prime that unit Allah Allah

00:27:08--> 00:27:54

There you go friends. So wait a minute what every human being in the Jana has that bubble boop boop boop boop so there's Jana has to start we're renovating the back section. We've got a lot of folks making do us for unicorns she's gonna put in a stable back here. Legit got some pandas going on? Can't wait for Jana is what I want to hear. And so I'm gonna take it a step further though. Then Allah azza wa jal said and this is to me friends. I personally grew up maybe it was narrated too early to me. So the who wrote in and gardens and everything was like ah, this is cool. Except and I hope this doesn't like turn you away. The talking to Allah subhanaw taala was what Who cares how

00:27:54--> 00:28:16

many tours you can? How many gardens and how much milk can you drink? I'm sorry, go to heaven, all of you. But the Allah Tala apart yo that that I think all of us down to San Diego and down to Illinois we know what's going on. So and Imran sister knows exactly. It's like yeah, that's great. I'm gonna have a big house. It's awesome. I will love it for 70,000 years.

00:28:18--> 00:28:20

Thanks if I just want to see Allah Tala and then

00:28:21--> 00:28:41

that person will have what no eye has ever seen. what no ear has ever heard and this was the part of the deeds you could see it it's written there at one no heart had the ability to desire the show the one lie that and Allah What does that even mean Germany? Like what is that even? You like?

00:28:42--> 00:28:43

What?

00:28:44--> 00:28:50

Ah, Allah Tala like Subhanallah now now oh, there we go.

00:28:52--> 00:29:41

So after you've gotten 10 Kung Fu Pandas and your your lions are talking to you, everyone realizes there's a narration as we continue, I just want to string this together. That a man will be sitting up the ramen in paradise and he's going to reach for a fruit and the tree will tell him what are you doing? This is very nice. And the tree will pick the fruit and will present it and the tree will say the famous statement of the Quran Salam o na alaykum libitum so the the mango fruit will come apart not M and peel the mango for you and feed you. And you will be like, alright, I get how this works. I get how this works. And the narration states in any realization in Jannah. Like if you realize,

00:29:41--> 00:29:51

oh, I just could sit here and start wishing for something. You will stay in one place and do that activity for 1000 years. So I could go out there man. I could just sit here and go.

00:29:52--> 00:30:00

Yes, other month, but 1000 years. You're just gonna sit there and go fruit, fruit, fruit and you're an air

00:30:00--> 00:30:16

Retirement will get better and every experience will increase. And I'm only explaining this to you because that's not the point. The point is, I believe, all personal. I believe all of this is just a cycle, a neurological

00:30:18--> 00:30:35

resistance, because all your nerves are going to be blown out of your general body when you see Allah. That is my conclusion. All of the you could do it for 70,000 years and you could drink milk till it's coming out of your nose and then swimming at church. Great, do it all.

00:30:37--> 00:30:57

And then when Ridwan it's the first Jumaa of Ramadan of Ramadan, yes, and it's the first do more of the days of Jana and Ridwan will pull a curtain that that last ozone layer the last ozone between us and Allah Ridwan will remove

00:30:59--> 00:31:19

and then you can have all the mango you want and nothing will have ever prepared you for what will happen. And the only reason why and the 32nd minute of the hour I wanted to say this is so that when this happens, and you're stuck in your you'll look over at me and I'll go told you

00:31:20--> 00:31:38

and then you'll remember Jannat integrity mean that the hell and her and how easy it was for us to recognize it. And I would like to work no one ever uses this how easy it was to get there. I know Jana super difficult and it's Fajr is so complicated. I'm with you.

00:31:41--> 00:32:00

But Fatima What do you say friend? Jana is really easy. Is it pretty easy? It's Jana is easy. Everything around and a little complicated. But Jana just feels right. Okay, but last moment. How many people already feel it? You're like, yeah, Jana. He just feels right.

But if you want to know some amazing human beings, Mohammad Rasool Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam don't read Buhari

00:33:59--> 00:34:36

After this Jana webinar my the eyes just took like just shot up you forget some of these

00:34:36--> 00:35:00

beautiful beautiful beautiful you know, realities agenda that we've been that we've been taught in the Quran that we don't read enough of looking at myself Subhana Allah And subhanAllah This is just like I wish I took more notes because it's literally taught at 12:36am right now here we have about four hours left in in the 25th night before Fajr and I'm going to be using this as my dog motivation and inspiration inshallah for tonight so all of you

00:35:00--> 00:35:32

beause I highly recommend that take some notes whatever you wanted whatever connected to you in that talk. Please make sure that you ask for it and ask for it for all of us in Sharla no man was saying before you go we haven't had in a few minutes and your ticket to Jana Masha Allah has been for some time, one of the most amazing gifts to the not just the immigrant community, but I know I know we like to, we like it's honest though. It's true Subhan Allah, but to the global community, because so many people had such a difficult relationship with Quran growing up and had such a hard there's a lot of insecurity associated with something that you're not good at, especially if it's from a

00:35:32--> 00:36:03

different language, it's foreign to you, you're trying to learn it to please a lot but it's not the journey is not easy, you know? And that was the focus and that was the goal of Quran revolution coming in is let's take all of these insecurities all of these issues that people have been experiencing their entire life young people you know adults people who are you know, in their in their in their senior years patola everybody on every part of the spectrum. And it let's let's make this easy for them. Let's simplify it. Let's make this fun. Let's make revolutionize there's reading the Quran. Can you like talk a little bit about it in Shaolin about that what that journey is like?

00:36:03--> 00:36:40

Absolutely, if I could tell the story backwards and truly because I didn't know I didn't realize we were going to talk about it backwards. Hafsa I taught the Quran revolution curriculum for 10 years, Masjid to Masjid. So Marisa Syrah in Germany for 120 classes, that's a combination of seven day classes, weekend courses, 120 times 121 classes. I taught the curriculum and course around the world. You famously hear the number 20,000 students, that's where they racked up there, I'm telling

00:36:42--> 00:36:45

you, yes, I'm not going to correct anyone but

00:36:46--> 00:37:42

we're getting much closer to doubling that number, but I'll stick with 20 Until we until we say 100,000 Allahumma Amin Hola Hola, Amin, but to everyone the backwards version of this hadith 1883 Riyadh the Saudi in Never did I ever finished one of the 120 that we'd seminars without reading this hadith to a group of students. So almost backwards, as if I taught you a crash course in that read, you know, telepathically what I would like to say, from teaching it for a decade over 25,000 students. I then came online and for 500 hours taught covertly is a program called reflect and for 500 hours have served my whole thing was how do you convert that live? Pardon me Tony Robbins

00:37:42--> 00:38:32

experience 100 plus people screaming Quran in the masjid and having breakthroughs right there in front of everyone. How do you do that online? After 500 hours of teaching reflect? Thank you, Allah subhanaw taala. For anyone who's wondering, it took two years. We then were approached by a mug grip at a film summit in London over breakfast. Could this be possible? And a half said the real part of the story for everyone to know was I did not know what the end vehicle was going to be. I didn't know Gron revolution I knew I needed to do 300 hours research ended up being 500 hours. And I knew that there had to be a vehicle so that anyone from Germany to Denmark, as Gina asked anyone from

00:38:32--> 00:38:33

around the world

00:38:34--> 00:39:25

Manila, you can ask anyone around the world and we could say you could start from I've never seen the letters in my life, too. I know how to read but I haven't read in a long time all the way down to have I memorized five Jews but I don't know how to read. Dun dun dun that's a real people real in the Northern African cultures. We attend something called Duck see where you can't read your name but you're made to memorize or take a double D in the chatbox and you all know that's a real thing people have to deal with duck see, and in many places you just make the kid memorize kid can't read. Quran revolution is an assessment. Quran revolution is then a placement. Quran revolution is then a

00:39:25--> 00:39:57

weekly lesson in my level. Quran revolution is weekly office hours to talk out questions. Quran revolution is weekly circles from anywhere in the world at different times. I don't know if I'm even correct. I think there are six different Quran reading circles you will probably attend one and then you will read Quran into your phone as a recording it goes into the app. And then that audio is

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

analyzed your

00:40:00--> 00:40:43

You're not given, you're wrong, you're wrong. You're giving feedback at this point grand revolution students, I see you here. I didn't know we were going to go so hard but grand revolution students, you want to give me a single sentence on the SS, right? You can't plug this. They're just here to listen to the talk. But the students submission. Amen. Instead of me telling you here's what you did wrong. Here are three things you did right on there. Here's the one thing we can polish. And if there's the single one thing, what makes one revolution different. I named all of them. But this one thing that we believe each semester can be broken into 15 lessons, you can focus in on one specific

00:40:43--> 00:41:28

lesson each week and sequentially build as opposed to shake. Can you tear me apart? What's the point of that? So when you're told what you're doing, right, and the one thing you can polish, you continue zeva from the UK, the DI D and the s s are people agreeing with what's being said dial into what's being said hon and I think you'll be able to make a real quick connection with it be an inline data, but have said that is what we're on revolution is S S stands for students submissions, those are people who are growing revolution students. And for those of you who can really say I need an environment, I don't need to be corrected. I need an environment to read Quran and other a man

00:41:28--> 00:42:16

might be at a level four working on his flow. And Florida and Imran sister might be in a completely different place. Like I need to work on my Mahato edge women can you make a play doh out of your kid's thing? Make a playdough and make like a little idol out of it and call it I need to work on my marriage. Then I want you to take a big hammer and smash that idol. Ladies How many of you with an M M in the chatbox are still no not crush it? I want you to stop this I need to work on my heart because the Quran is not made of separate letters, the grinds made of words. I just want to get that out of my system. Deep breaths were fasting. And neither Would you acknowledge Saira that I need to

00:42:16--> 00:43:02

work on my marriage is a blanket to never move forward. You're just going to stay under that cozy. I need to work on my MacBook, make a little playdough man like samosa take some samosa otter and make a little yeah there you go make a little bread man out of it and then smash it like the gingerbread man from Shrek bite the head off. Stop working on your Mahato edge we're fasting will work on your relationship to the words of the Quran Quran WB W Quran revolutions YouTube channel and if you would like to join us for the journey as I think over 7000 students have done adjust online please join us at Quran revolution.com barkcloth eco Hadith about Jana was still better than all of this just by

Okay, this is I did pull it up

00:48:58--> 00:48:58

in this

00:48:59--> 00:49:19

old movie in LA him and I shaytani regime FLIR at Main Morocco. Jeddah Isla her her were who were Abdullah who are who Allah in you had

00:49:20--> 00:49:59

some way he were can be he ledger Allah Allah be so re he please share well done. May D mean by the left as well letter that room 100 Lucky Zach lucky, scented Baraka Luffy thank you so much. May Allah bless you, and your family and your recitation. 100 as beautiful as I can. So today's verse sorta jatheon Verse number 23 Allah has Panama data says or BE LUCKY TO SHARE upon the regime. I found

00:50:00--> 00:50:21

Are ATM and Tessa Illa who Hawa? Have you seen those who take their own desires as their God? What Allah Allah Allahu Allah. And Allah left them to go astray with knowledge or knowingly will hurt them or Allah some ad and seal they're,

00:50:22--> 00:51:10

they're, they're hearing well kalbi and their hearts were Jalla Allah bacillary ratio and placed upon their site a covering by Mejia de him in Barry Diller and so who will guide them? After Allah, a fella to that karoun? Do they not ponder or consider or they're not mindful? Now? Let's break this down in sha Allah Allah. First of all, Allah who was penalized to Allah says follow ATM and it tells her that Allah Who Hawa Have you seen? Or have you not seeing those who take their own desires as their God? Now, this is a Subhanallah a, a lust is asking a question, right? And we've always said that when Allah is asking a question, we want to personalize this message. And we want to ask

00:51:10--> 00:51:57

ourselves, is this not as Allah is speaking to us? Right? So we want to put ourselves in the position that this is asking us this question. Have you seen those who take their own desires as their gods? Now? What does it mean to take one's desire or take anything as an ILA? It means to obey them and to submit to them, rather than submitting to Allah whose habitat or submitting to them in a way that we would only submit to Allah. And so we find this actually Subhan Allah even when it comes to worship, Allah has pointed out I mentioned that in sort of medium how Ibraheem Alehissalaam says to his father Yeah, but the laptop with the shape on Oh, my father, don't worship the shield button.

00:51:57--> 00:52:38

Now we know that his father was not directly worshipping the ship on rather he would worship idols right, he was actually a maker of idols and he would sell idols and so on and so forth. But Ibrahim Allah, his set, um, contextualize that for him. And what he that what he was trying to teach his father is that the worship of idols is the worship of the Shia THON because this is what the Shabbat wants. So what you're doing is, you're submitting to the shale Bong. And what the Shelton wants in the shape on wants that you worship other than Allah Spano data. So it's a similar idea here, that we are giving our desires. We're making them the ultimate authority, and especially when Subhanallah

00:52:38--> 00:53:21

our desires go against what Allah who's peddling to Allah has commanded are what Allah has forbidden for us. And so when we see a command from Allah, whether it be a prohibition, or to leave a prohibition, or whether it be to fulfill an obligation, if we leave that obligation, or we leave that or we do something that Allah is prohibited, because we desire it, now we have given our desires precedence over the Command of Allah, who has penalty IRA. And what this does is Hanalei. You know, when we, when we when we personalize this message, it becomes something very serious, right? Because how often May Allah protect us? Do we do something like that, right? waking up from a

00:53:21--> 00:54:01

job, our alarm goes off, we know it's time to prefetch out. And we're like, you know, I'm really tired, I just want to sleep. And I'm gonna sleep more a little bit more. And, you know, below protectors, we miss Fincher. Now, what has happened here is that we have given our own desires precedence over the Command of Allah who's penalized to Anna and phrasing it in a way, like this is is Subhanallah is something to really reflect upon, that it's one thing to say, you know, I gave into my desires, which is fine, okay, that's a way to say it. To say that we have made or I have made my desire more important than Allah makes this matter more serious than we can imagine to

00:54:01--> 00:54:39

panela. And so one of the ways to personalize this message is that when we are in that position, right, then when it comes to leaving, something that Allah has prohibited, or whether it be fulfilling an obligation for the lowest trying to add up, we remember this idea that have you seen the one who has taken their desires, as their ILA as their god as one who should be worshipped and obeyed? And now this is such a serious charge? That that should trigger us to say, No, I don't want to be that person. Right? I don't want to be the person that has mentioned in this idea. It's the death Yeah, I don't want to be this person. And that should be a driving force for us to stay away

00:54:39--> 00:55:00

from something like that. Also, you know, talk about principles of reflection, paying attention to the words and the terminology that Allah uses. And even like the the descriptions and the metaphors and so on and so forth. So what Allah says here is, have you seen this person? Now, I reflected on this panel last night and I have an answer.

00:55:00--> 00:55:41

Did I put down as well? But I want to hear from you. When Allah says Farah ATM, Anita Illa? How? How have you seen this person that takes their own? Or who takes their own desires as their ina as their God? What is the significance of saying, Have you seen this person Allah could have said just said, there is a person or there are those, right? who take their desires as their God as their as their Lord? Or are those who worship their own desires? Have you seen those people? Right? That's that's one way. Another way is Allah could have said there are those people look has informed us of those people. What is the significance of saying have you seen those? Or do you see those? Now, just go

00:55:41--> 00:55:43

ahead and raise your hand.

00:55:47--> 00:55:49

Do we have anyone or should we call on someone?

00:55:53--> 00:55:53

Mila?

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

Let's see.

00:55:57--> 00:56:01

I thought I saw our brother of the Hitman login. Is he here?

00:56:03--> 00:56:07

Oh, we have hands up. Oh, so how do we actually we have hands? Sister Hamza, we have hands up.

00:56:11--> 00:56:21

Yes, okay. Let's call in somebody has your hands up. I was gonna put brother him on the spot. Like, I know he's got something good for us. So that's what I was gonna you know, but let's go ahead. Sometimes I call on somebody who has their hand up.

00:56:25--> 00:56:34

Yes, actually, I'm going to jump in inshallah and help out says, Oh, you're doing your your tag team. Were tag teaming. Oh, absolutely.

00:56:35--> 00:56:39

I think she passed the mic over to me to help out. Okay, that's what happened.

00:56:42--> 00:56:50

I don't know what's happening here. What's going on? Some back end deal that took place. I don't know what's happening. But that's exactly what it was. That's exactly.

00:56:52--> 00:56:58

We do have sisters. So hey, hola. So I'll go ahead. So Haley, have your hands up. If you'd like to go ahead and get us started in Sharla.

00:57:00--> 00:57:24

I said, I'm Monica. Like I said, I'm in LA. So I feel like when someone an industry case, Allah asked us, have you seen the one who did something something something? It's a bit? Sometimes it can get a bit cynical? And sometimes it's to tell you, it's actually you. It could be you.

00:57:25--> 00:57:43

Maybe you should look at yourself first before you see other people. No, no, very good. Excellent reflection, right. Once again, personalizing the message. Right? That Have you seen this person say okay, very well. So one of the one of the benefits we get from that is, that person can be us. Right, very good. Do we have any other hands up?

00:57:44--> 00:57:50

Yes, we do. Let's go ahead and go with Sr. SML. Krisna. In Malaysia.

00:57:51--> 00:57:53

Malaysia representing today 100.

00:57:56--> 00:57:58

likes it on my blog. I'm

00:57:59--> 00:58:03

actually just like what the previous sister just said.

00:58:04--> 00:58:14

I think most of the time we're in this situation because I once passed through this scenario. Also, when I was working, I tend to like,

00:58:15--> 00:58:59

be like, more concentrating on my job, especially scared of my boss. And then when it's time for prayers, I end up piling prayers till I get home. So it's I had to reflect one time like that. And I'm like, there are things not going nicely for me, what am I doing? It's lapsing and stuff like that. So I had to stand up to my boss at some point, I'm like, sir, I'm gonna do anything you want me to do. But when it's time for prayer, I just have to go pray. And also to then see that no matter how you give me a job that very tedious, I kind of like get it done in time because I had to start prioritizing between my dean and my dunya no handler, so personalizing, personalizing the message,

00:58:59--> 00:59:08

right putting yourself as in is this verse speaking about me? Have you seen this person? That person could be mean handler? Very good. Very good. Who else do we have? Who else do we have?

00:59:09--> 00:59:12

Yes, we have sisterhood in Florida. Go ahead.

00:59:16--> 00:59:59

Synoptical. Like I said, when I thought of this idea, I thought of all the other ions that tell you about all the foam that came before and follow their desires and were destroyed. And so Allah use them as an example for us to follow and like home lot and and come No, and every, every other people that came before us and they followed their desire and Allah destroyed them. So have you seen these people? And have you seen them for all their desire and have you seen them be destroyed from their through their desires? So take that as an example and make sure that you don't follow your desire and then be destroyed because of following that desire that keeps you away from Allah? Very good,

00:59:59--> 00:59:59

very good X.

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

On excellent reflection, so looking at those who came before us, right and very good. So we can see, even in our lifetime, people who have lived and passed away, and so on and so forth, how they live their lives, and what was the outcome of living their lives in that way. So there are those who live their lives in this way. And what the lifestyle that Allah is just really describing here is basically, you decide for yourself, or people decide for themselves, what is good, what is bad. And the idea is that if it feels good to you do it, if you like it, do it right. And basically giving into our base desires and excellent reflection. So right, just look, look at the people in history,

01:00:38--> 01:01:15

but we can take that a step further. So if Allah has tried to add us saying, I thought I am I definitely la ha ha, have you seen this person who has taken their own desires as their Lord or their God? Meaning we can look around us today, and we can see examples of those people, right. So this is not a concept that is difficult for us to understand, or that is a vague concept, or that is something that we cannot visualize and see this is a law is telling us that there are people in this kind of law, you know, the more I reflect on this, the miraculous nature of the Quran that Allah is saying, look, look around you, right, even now there are people around you, do you see this person

01:01:15--> 01:01:27

who has taken their own desires, as their God and then Allah will tell us of their description and so on and so forth. So these people exist today. Another reflection I had on this panel,

01:01:28--> 01:01:52

is that when Allah is telling us to Allah is is is telling us to observe and look right? What are we observing? What are we looking for? Well, if we're looking for something, we would only look for something that we could be, we are able to see. And so that tells us that a person who lives their life in this way, it will be evident on the exterior, right? So you know, people say,

01:01:53--> 01:02:31

you know, faith is in the heart, like all that matters is you have a good heart that you're a good person. And it's a misunderstanding of the hadith of our send them and send them said, a duck. Wha ha ha now, right Taqwa is right here, which is correct. But that hadith is talking about Taqwa. It begins here, and it is housed here, but does not negate the well known concept and our theme that our tech or our faith, or religiosity has an effect on our limbs as well. So it's not just the heart, it's a relationship between the heart and the limbs and our tongue and so on and so forth. So this verse is indicating to us that a person who lives their life on this way, it will at some

01:02:31--> 01:03:13

point, visually, we will be able to see it, as well. Right. So once again, paying attention to what is happening around us. And there is visibly a difference between a person who does this and a person who does not do that. Cool. Like that reflection. Yes, yes. Okay. Hamdulillah. All right, very good. So, first part of this verse, as we said, for 18 minutes after that, you know, how have you seen that one who takes their desires as their God? And you know, this is why I caught a little bit of what was mentioned in the in the previous section, you know, about gender and so on and so forth. And, and one of the descriptions or one of the narrations we have about Jana is where the

01:03:13--> 01:03:56

prophets I send it as mentioned in the site hain, he said, what that agenda to been mCherry that Jana has been surrounded by hardships, or literally things that are that we don't like, right things that are hard for us. We'll refer to now vicia Hawa and the Hellfire is surrounded by Shaohua by desires right. So once again, this this idea of attaining Jana, but having to do things that are difficult, and when we do things that are difficult, we are giving priority of priority to our Lord Allah who's going to Allah over things that we may find to be, or things that we like, right things that are things that are pleasing to us. Another Hadith, very interesting that deals with

01:03:58--> 01:04:20

this issue of desires, right and what we may desire or we may like which is not a direct reference to this, but you know, I mentioned this in my class that deals with the shield been the hadith of sentiment and fantasy, or the Allahu I mentioned Sahih Muslim in response to send them he said that Tekken is so far into a one minute holy soup. He said,

01:04:21--> 01:04:59

if you're able to do not be a woman, yet called a silk Do not be the first person to enter the market marketplace. One of my young clergymen have and not and try not to be the last person to leave it right. So the President is telling us that the marketplace and in our times it can be you know, the mall and things like that. But it actually has even an additional level and added meaning in our times because the marketplace is really on our fingertips now. Right the internet, Amazon and sometimes Subhanallah by entering into certain apps, we're entering the marketplace. You don't even have to go to Amazon and eBay

01:05:00--> 01:05:34

Like relevant documents and online shopping. Kijiji I've heard of Kijiji, but we don't we don't use Kijiji is that I think that's a that's a Canadian thing. I think it's a Canadian thing. Kijiji right, Canadian. Yeah, there. There you go. I know my Canadian culture. But yeah, Facebook and Instagram, right? So you don't even have to enter into a marketplace, even if it's an online marketplace, things are marketed to us, like, you know, like you're talking about something with your friends. Next thing, you know, you're scrolling through your Instagram feed. And it's like, Hey, are you looking for? I don't know, new plates and you like how did you know I'm talking about

01:05:34--> 01:06:13

plates, you know, they know they're listening, they know what you're searching for. They have like a whole profile built for you. Right? They know what you want, they know what you need. SubhanAllah. So right there. As part of the process and everything if you're able to don't be the first person to enter the silk, the marketplace, and the last person to leave it meaning you're spending the most amount of time there. Why for in America to share Pong for certainly it is the battleground of the shield fun will be how young civil rioter and it is in the marketplace, that he raises his banner or raises his flag, meaning that is where he wages, one of the battle battle grounds, which he puts his

01:06:13--> 01:06:53

flag One meaning is that he takes a stand. Another meeting, some scholars have said that is where he claims victory, right? Because he knows that this is a place where people are being driven by their desires, by their wants things that are attractive to them. And therefore Subhanallah a person is the shield and is able to control the person. And this is what we're talking about control. Once again, we're listening to our desires over the commandments of Allah, who is penalty Allah. Now just I want to be very clear here, it's not haram to go to the marketplace. It's not you're not necessarily sinful. But what is being indicated to us in this hadith is that we are putting

01:06:53--> 01:07:30

ourselves in a position in a place that where it can wear down on our spirituality, and then eventually a person can fall into haram, if they do it enough. And to kind of let you know, it's not necessarily that a person, even if it's a physical marketplace, that a person will fall into into haram. But the chances the likelihood goes up, you can go to panela a community that is very strict when it comes to like gender segregation, and so on and so forth. And the masjid is like a, an iron wall, you know, like a four inch iron wall between the brothers and sisters, and so on and so forth, where you go the marketplace and those same people that you know, the machine made all this effort

01:07:30--> 01:07:45

to make sure that guys and girls never ever come into contact with one another. Right? But you go to the marketplace cost, there's no more there's no more barrier, like what are you going to walk around with a barrier and say no brothers on this side, and sisters on this side, and so on so forth. The point here, the point here is that

01:07:46--> 01:08:26

our exposure to sin becomes more. And you know, the whole point of a marketplace is to make things enticing for us to sell things to us. And obviously, those of you who studied marketing, I have I studied graphic design and design and part of that I we had to take courses on marketing as well. The whole idea is like what do we have to do to get this person to buy this product? Right? And basically, it is, you know, we're on the on the very peripheries of moralities, for how to lessen times. It's like, what what can we do? What can we do to get this person to buy this product? So this idea, once again, it's it's it's a, it's a serious matter, but there's so much around us, that

01:08:26--> 01:08:48

we need to be cognizant of someone around us that we need to be aware of, that could put us in a position where Subhanallah we're not even conscious to the fact that we are listening to our desires over listening to what Allah whose product data is asking of us, we may just give in without even knowing that we are giving in Allah who has power with data. Protect us, I remember is Pamela back in the day,

01:08:49--> 01:09:25

though, Allison scholars used to talk about the TV, right? They say the marketplaces entered your homes, right? Because you got the TV on. And when you turn on the TV, you're letting the marketplace and you're and I was like and I think Subhanallah if going back and I could speak to those scholars and I'd say you know, you'd literally be carrying it around, like in your hand you'd be carrying around the mark but plays in your head not only that, people would be obsessively checking it every five minutes. It will just blow their mind how the battleground of the ship on has has changed and evolved and how powerful it has become May Allah subhanaw taala protect us. So once again, Farah ATM

01:09:25--> 01:09:44

and Tessa Illa, who Hawa? Have you seen the one? Or have you seen those who have taken their own desires as their God? What about Allah Allahu Allah? And so Allah left them to go astray with either one. There's two different ways of looking at this. Number one, the meaning is that

01:09:45--> 01:10:00

they went astray, even though they had the knowledge of what is correct. They knew what is right and they knew what is wrong. So you know, we're talking about personalizing this message thinking about ourselves being Muslim hearing reminders. We know what's right and we know what

01:10:00--> 01:10:41

It's wrong. And yet we still may go astray because of our desires or because of the strength of our desires or because of how much May Allah protect us we have given into our desires, even though we know what is right and what is wrong that Allah has punted to Allah protect us. The second meaning is that Allah has power to Adam and Allah knows that that these people have given preference to their desires over the commands of Allah who has power with Adam, then both meanings inshallah data are correct. But personalizing the message, the first meaning that we know right from wrong, we know this is right, we know this is wrong, yet we may give into our desires. The other issue here

01:10:41--> 01:10:44

Subhanallah very common is

01:10:45--> 01:10:52

how we may try to rationalize certain sins, right. And the chiffon has a very powerful

01:10:53--> 01:11:01

this is one of his his powerful tools is rationalization. And let me give you some examples of rationalization. Rationalization can occur in many ways.

01:11:03--> 01:11:39

One of the very common ways people rationalize their sins is at least I'm not doing this, right. What about ism? If you know what, what about ism is right? What about this? Or what about that? So someone's committing a sin? They say, Well, what about? So it's two ways? What about those people? At least I'm not as bad as those people, those people are doing that I'm not doing that. Or, you know, at least I'm not doing this. So a common example, I give Subhanallah that a person? I don't know, they're smoking cigarettes. And you know, it's like, oh, it's Haram is smoking cigarettes, haram, it's harmful to your body, and so on and so forth. And it's how well, at least I'm not.

01:11:41--> 01:11:44

I don't know, at least I'm not drinking alcohol, right.

01:11:45--> 01:12:09

So cut off rationalize, then the person drinking alcohol said, well, at least I'm not doing drugs, even though there's a you know, it's a separate discussion, but drugs and alcohol Islamically often fall into the same category of common, I think, I don't know if we mentioned this in one of our sessions. I feel like I've mentioned this before. But some have a lot. Let's just say, you know, in society, certainly in American sidewalk times,

01:12:10--> 01:12:13

alcohol is viewed as being much better than,

01:12:14--> 01:12:48

you know, drugs. So a person says, I'm drinking alcohol, at least I'm not doing drugs, and a person now it's kind of love starts smoking pot. And well, at least I'm not doing harder drugs, right? I'm not just I'm not doing coke, and so on and so forth. And person doing that hard drugs? Well, at least I didn't murder someone. I mean, there's no end to it, right? There's always going to be Subhanallah a worst sin or something worse than a perfect person can say, at least I'm not doing that. That is one of the ways that people rationalize sins are also part of this is the you know, what about isn't that we talked about? What about those people? You're telling me but look at all

01:12:48--> 01:13:21

those people who are committing those sins? Why don't you go talk to them first, right. And once again, you know, we, we were always talking about personalizing the message, right and not looking at other people looking at ourselves. And that's one of the ways to handle especially when it comes to the obedience of Allah is trying to add up, and not putting ourselves in a position where we're always looking at ourselves that at least I'm better than that person, at least I'm better than that person. Or we should be criticizing those people once again, there are many ways but this is just one very common way of rationalizing, rationalizing a sin basically making excuses justifying sins

01:13:21--> 01:13:46

that we do. The whole idea here is that a person they know they know yet they will find ways to say you know what, it's it's okay. And then Allah has penalized to Allah says, I'm going through a difficult time. So it's justified. Yeah. Brother Abdullah from from Belgium. Excellent. Excellent rationalization, right. Yeah. You know what, leave me alone. And you know, I had a lot I don't know the issue of cigarettes cut a

01:13:48--> 01:14:14

click that made that clicked for you. But yeah, sometimes people will turn to certain sins or vices because you know what, it's, I'm just dealing with a problem right now. And let me at least at least do this. You know what, let's let's hear some other rationalizations. How are some other ways that people rationalize? Since we got some great stuff in the comments here? 100. And so once you raise your hand Insha Allah, what are some of the way that people rationalize sins, meaning they know it's wrong, but they'll find a way to justify and say, say it's okay.

01:14:15--> 01:14:19

So like, we got a couple of hands up some quickfire quickfire answers, there's been no.

01:14:21--> 01:14:23

Alright, the schita from Houston, go ahead.

01:14:24--> 01:14:26

Son of my league. Um, so one of the thing is that

01:14:27--> 01:14:35

my whole family doesn't my whole tribe does it my whole country does it. The whole continent does that. How can that be wrong?

01:14:36--> 01:14:59

And then, and then, unfortunately, I don't want to say this, but a lot of shoe your soccer shoe has educated people have different fatwas. Like a lot of people who say, Oh, no, security is actually not around. It's macro. Yeah. Well, shopping. Yeah. So do you think my shift knows less than your shift? I mean, come on the whole. So all of these are ways to justify because clearly I'm following a che who

01:15:00--> 01:15:31

Think cigarettes, okay, and clearly, which is fine. And so, and my whole country doesn't, by the way, so what's wrong with you doing? Yeah, very good normalization, right, like so many people are doing it. How bad? Can it really be? Like, I've literally heard someone say, do you think God is gonna send all of us to help? And I was like, what? Wow, that's some that's some powerful thinking right there to come up with that, you know, reasoning, right? Because from the perspective of the ship, ah, that's very powerful. Right? Do you think God's gonna sell all these people to hell? And it's like, yeah, that makes sense. Like, obviously can't be that bad. Right. Very good. Very good.

01:15:31--> 01:15:33

Excellent. Do you have anyone else?

01:15:37--> 01:16:16

Yeah, as long as, like surround color. I've heard people saying, like, you know, if we tell them to, you know, look outwardly like, Muslim, like, have a beard, or wear a hijab. So the excuse that they gave us that, I know, so many people who have a beard, and they do all sorts of sevens, like, you know, they cheat and they lie. They, and you know, people who have a hijab, you know, I've seen them go into the pubs or you know, the clubs. So what's so good, you're doing? Exactly, exactly, I'd say yeah, very, very, very common tactic right there of the shield button, right to say, once again, to compare yourself to people.

01:16:17--> 01:16:37

And this is, especially in Muslim countries, like I hear this a lot. And people talk about Muslim countries, the religious class, and so on and so forth. They'll say like, Oh, what is what is the point of religion? Or what is the point of, you know, praying like, these people, they pray and all this kind of stuff, but look at the sins that they're committing, right. So what is the point? Excellent, excellent. Let's take let's take two more real quick fire quickfire answers is good stuff.

01:16:39--> 01:16:40

Can you hear me?

01:16:41--> 01:17:06

Yes, yes. Okay. So a lot of people say don't judge me, you don't know what's in my heart. And then there's another common when you're coming up with some new kinds of Islam. That's something I've heard a lot. What do you mean, what do you mean by that? You're coming up with a new kind of Islam. Like, we haven't heard this from our forefathers and stuff like that. So you're coming up with a new kind of Islam. Okay, okay. I got you. I got you. So basically,

01:17:07--> 01:17:18

like, you know, like, I never heard that this is wrong or so until a lot, you know, yeah, he does it or whatever. Okay, very good. Very good. Let's take one more. One more person. Quick answer in sha Allah.

01:17:20--> 01:17:21

Is that the hand?

01:17:22--> 01:17:26

Yes. Yes. Okay. This is how you're like, Okay, you're doing all right. Cool.

01:17:27--> 01:17:27

We're

01:17:29--> 01:17:42

gonna love it. Go ahead. Yeah, so one that I think the speakers the ones that do not actually there, they haven't studied Islam. And so something that I came across way before I put on the hijab, I was a teenager, it was this TED talk.

01:17:47--> 01:17:48

got cut off, right.

01:17:51--> 01:18:23

Yeah. And the TED talk was able this woman that was saying that, you know, hijab was necessary back then during that time, and, you know, it was, it's there to guard you and protect you. But in this, you know, in this day and age, it actually does the opposite. You know, it attracts people to look at you because you look different from the rest of the crowd. And I remember at the time, because I was a teenager, like, my dad had just sat me down because I was like, well, she's saying this, and he's like, no, no, no, no, let me bring he brings out the Quran. And he's like, trying to show me, you know, don't listen to what anyone just says, just because they have the platform, and they're

01:18:23--> 01:18:59

going on there, especially on social media, you know, nowadays, so it's important that they have the credentials to speak about that. That's an excellent, excellent point in our rationalization comes from sometimes our own intellect and what we think is rational and logical, and so on and so forth. And that is why one of the things I always teach my students is any command of Allah has kindly to Allah, we do it, not for whatever reason, there, there's always a reason there's always a wisdom behind why we do something. But the main reason and actually sometimes I say, the only reason we are doing whatever command we're fulfilling is because we are worshipping Allah. We're submitting to

01:18:59--> 01:19:27

Allah Hispanic, Donna, because there's always a way to say, You know what, it doesn't apply anymore. You know, this isn't that you don't need to do this anymore. Brothers get the beard thing, right. It's Oh, to distinguish yourself from non Muslims. Okay, but today, it's all the hipsters and stuff everybody's got a beard, right? So what's the point of no, no, no, that's not why we grow a beard. We grow a beard because my Selim said, grow your beards, right? It's as simple as that. Whatever wisdom that is, there is there hamdulillah very good, great, great stuff. hundos everyone loves it. Everyone who shared.

01:19:28--> 01:19:38

Next dolla, Allahu Allah and Allah says, and Allah left them to go straight with knowledge, will have them on a seminary, he will be what says, Then

01:19:39--> 01:19:47

they sealed Allah seal their their, their hearing and their hearts. Now what Allah is warning us here.

01:19:48--> 01:19:59

What a lot of what we're being warned about, is what happens when we constantly give preference to our desires over the commands of Allah who's Panhellenic

01:20:00--> 01:20:07

And eventually what happens is that May Allah protect us our hearts can become sealed. And even the very vivid

01:20:09--> 01:20:19

example of our sight, right sight that which many of us those those of us who loves turns out has given us the ability to see, it is something that we think we have control over, right.

01:20:20--> 01:21:04

And so have a lot the idea of not of that being sealed, right, not being able to see is supposed to be a very powerful example for us and that in our heart, that eventually we lose control. And we have the Hadith of the prophets, I send them in which he said, that a person will commit a sin, and when they commit a sin a.is placed upon their heart. And if they leave that sin and they seek Allah's forgiveness, they repent from that sin, their heart, the the dot will be removed and one of the meanings is the heart will become polished, right. And however, if they don't do so, or if they return to that sin the.is placed upon the heart, and as they continue to commit sins, the dots

01:21:04--> 01:21:47

increase until the heart becomes until the heart is overcome, basically. And then the Narcissus Adam said, who are run under the Lakota law, this is the covering that Allah has mentioned can been Ron Anna, could you be him? Can we see Boone that rather their heart has become covered by that which they used to do? Right? There's a covering over their hearts, basically a seal over their hearts, may Allah protect us by that which they used to do. And once again, this is we reflect upon this, we understand the power of desires and giving into our own desires, right? That a person may say, you know, going back to the rationalization now some people rationalize it. Well, God send me to hell.

01:21:47--> 01:22:24

And I hear this a lot of times, as I said before, you think God's gonna send me to hell for this one sin? And in all honesty, for that one sin? Probably not. And I it's not my place to speak on a loss my data, but Allah is merciful. And for that one, particularly if you die, and that's the only sin you committed a low item, but it seems unlikely Allah is the Allah is the final judge. But what you're not understanding is that by belittling that sin by not considering it a big deal, You're making your situation worse, you know, this person making their situation worse, they are rationalizing and politically a sin when we belittle a sin, it often leads to another sin, and the

01:22:24--> 01:23:04

sins increase and we and sins become normalized for us. And when that happens, that may be the cause that a person enters into the hellfire, right? But so once again, it's not that just that one sin. It's it's when the sins accumulate, when they become normalized when they become belittled, a bucket of the love it he said, to to be little a sin is a major sin, right? Even if it is a minor sin that we're belittling right? Certain sin, it's a minor sin, not a big deal. Whatever. We know our minor sins are forgiven from one job to another job, from one Ramadan to another Ramadan, good deeds, remove bad deeds, so on and so forth. All these, by the way, are referring to minor sins. Sometimes

01:23:04--> 01:23:08

people hear these narrations and they think, you know what, it's a minor sin.

01:23:09--> 01:23:48

Who cares, right? Just one number launch another Ramadan when Jim, Jim Allah, the sin will be removed. And yes, hopefully they will be removed, but the impact on the heart? What happens to that? Right that we continue to commit sins or the fact that we are belittling a sin and as I said, the statement upon Abu Bakar, the Allah who said to belittle a sin to say, it's not a big deal, that within of itself is a major sin because we are now saying what Allah has commanded is not a big deal, right? It's not a big deal that Allah has kind of to Allah has commanded something and then to end to belittle the greatness of Allah, that is a major sin. And this is why the scholars of the

01:23:48--> 01:24:30

past they would say, number in a certain unhealthier, do not look at the smallness of the sin, rather look at the greatness of the one who, who who made this a sin. Right. So instead of looking at the sin is so tiny, the sin is so small, rather look at the one who has made this matter how an example that I often give, as Pamela is of my kids. It used to be my older son, who is now past his age Subhanallah my younger one is getting out of the stage as well. But there's a stage that kids go through many kids go through where they start writing on walls. I don't know if you've experienced this, let me know in the chat if you've experienced them like this, but kids see a nice, white blank

01:24:30--> 01:24:59

wall and they have a crayon in their hand. And they're like, you know, got it got a color. You know, this is just a boring wall. Like why wouldn't I draw something on here something nice. And they're not alone. A parent tells their child Don't do this, right? That is not going to make sense to the child. Right? And sometimes, you know, parents try to try to reason with their children. Like what are you doing or what were you thinking when you did this? Like homies two years old? He's not thinking anything, right? He's just he's a kid. Or he's thinking like, this looks like why would you not do

01:25:00--> 01:25:36

Color on this wall like it's so boring. So, you know, the child's not gonna understand your reasoning, but sometimes not always. And it's rare. Sometimes the child will listen, right? But why does the child Listen, the child doesn't listen. And even even my son, I remember later on when I would stop him, you wouldn't always listen, but the few times that he would listen, it's not because he understands my logic of you know what, we painted this wall and then we have to repaint it, it's expensive, or, you know, we got to clean it up or whatever, like that makes no sense to him. What does make sense to him is that his dad, his father doesn't like it, and that it's upsetting his

01:25:36--> 01:26:09

father, it's upsetting his mother. And you know what, I don't want to normally do it. But today, you know what, I'll give my dad a break. I don't want to upset my dad. So I won't cover on the wall. So and obviously for Allah is the best example the highest example when Allah He must alone, Allah for Allah is the highest example, that a child may leave something not because they understand what they're doing is wrong. But they but but they know they don't want to displease their parents. Now think about what Allah was kind of meant to add out with the commandments of Allah and so on and so forth. We don't always understand why Allah has made something haram or why Allah has made something

01:26:09--> 01:26:47

obligatory upon us, but we know Allah, or we want to get to know Allah, right? We want it when we want to understand the greatness of Allah, Allah, we understand that Allah is great, we understand that Allah is our Creator will let we understand that Allah was trying to Allah knows what is best for us. So even if it doesn't make sense to us, out of our submission to Allah trying to Allah, we leave that particular sin, right? Or we make an effort, or at the very least Subhanallah we take that sin seriously. I have a lot more respect for someone who is when they're reminded of a sin, they say, You know what, you're right. It's it's a, it's hard for me to leave it, I'm struggling

01:26:47--> 01:27:19

with it. And it continuing the synth versus someone who says hasn't really a big deal. You know, there's so and so scholar, as one of our sisters mentioned, so and so scholar actually said it's kind of Alright, well, you know, what, if you really think about it, it's not. So there's a big difference between the two. One is saying, You know what, it's I'm struggling with it. It's difficult for me, it's hard. But I know, I know, this is what it is. And you know, it's a struggle for me. And even if they don't end up leaving the sin, look, none of us are perfect. None of us are free of sin. But there's a different kind of someone who understands that this is a big deal. All

01:27:19--> 01:27:39

the commandments of Allah, big deal, right? All of the prohibitions of Allah, I doubt are a big deal. We understand that that is a much better place to be in than someone who says, You know what, make excuses or rationalize it or find, as we said, photoshopping, go find a scholar who says that it's okay. And then, you know, and I think so Hala, even people who do that,

01:27:41--> 01:28:17

you know, when the last time to add, I mentioned that Allah Allahu Allah, that they are left to go straight upon knowledge. I think everyone who goes photoshopping, deep down in their heart, if they really thought about this matter, they would know what they're doing is wrong. Right. And that's why I don't think I don't think we should spend a lot of time criticizing people or going after someone who is photoshopping, I think we should just remind someone, teach them the principle of you know, what, if you're going to put to a shop and the end of the day, you're not following the opinion of a scholar, you're actually following your own opinion. Because in the end of the day, you're not

01:28:17--> 01:28:53

listening to the scholar, you're listening to your own knifes. If you're gonna listen, I often say, you know, my friends, close friends and stuff. When they asked me, a lot of my friends come to me when they have questions on Islam was halal and haram, and so on and so forth. Because they have access to me, right? Family and friends, and so on, so forth. And very often, they'll, you know, don't have much anymore, but back in the day, they would say to me, Hey, Syed, what's the is this head on or head on? Or whatever? And I'd say, you know, is head on, for example, it's okay, now I can tell they're not happy with the answer. So they say, Yeah, but you know, what about that check

01:28:53--> 01:29:26

over there? You know, they say it's okay. And my answer is, okay, I have no problem with you following that [???]. But then make sure you follow all of their opinions, right? Everything because if you don't, then you're just following your desire based on what your desire is picking whatever opinion it's not about the scholar, then it's not about their knowledge, it's about what you think is better for you. So I would say okay, if you're gonna follow that scholar, follow them and all of their opinions. And they're like, no, no, we don't want to follow them. We will, you know, we know you and we trust your knowledge and so on and so forth. Okay, then, right? That's, that's for you to

01:29:26--> 01:30:00

decide. But I'm just telling you, you know, if you're gonna say yeah, I'm no problem with you go into another scholar. Like, obviously, there are plenty of scholars and there are many people were way more knowledgeable than me and so on and so forth. But you have to decide who you're taking your knowledge who you're taking your photo from, alright? Because it's not it can't be a pick and choose because if it's a pick and choose type of situation, you've just given preference to what you like, and not what the truth actually is. Right. So, so, so the point here is Subhanallah that, as I was saying, you know, people who do stuff like that

01:30:00--> 01:30:36

I don't I think honestly people if they really thought about this issue, this is something that they would they would understand if you just ponder and reflect that's why I don't believe in like hammering people over you know, a call to fit to a hammer, right or haram police and stuff like that. Honestly, I don't think there is a lot. It's a very effective methodology, right? Because sometimes people become their rationalization of a sin becomes very ironic Subhanallah it becomes spied right that I'm sick of you telling me this is haram. And I'm, you know what, I'm just gonna do it like I'm tired of hearing it and out of spite May Allah protect us they will.

01:30:38--> 01:31:10

They will involve themselves in a particular sin. May Allah protect us. So anyway, going back to the lungs, Panama to Allah says, oh, Jana Jana Allah buffering, sorry, the previous verse we said Hunter Allah says a weapon be that Allah seals or their their heart their hearing in their hearts become sealed. What Jalla Allah buffer he reached out and placed upon their site, a cover and I'm going to come back to this because I want you to reflect on this insha Allah and then Allah says familia de human dinner.

01:31:11--> 01:31:47

And then who will guide this person after Allah subhana data? Meaning look, if guidance from Allah has come to you, and you have rejected it, then who else is there every every other person or authority that you will turn to is less than Allah? So then what is you who is it other than Allah, if you left Allah, then nothing is sacred anymore. Basically, the point is, you know, any person that you would follow there would be less than Allah who's kind of data if you're leaving the guidance of Allah has kind of data of Allah to the Quran, Will you not then be mindful Will you not take heed will not be reminded? And once again, you know, these this idea once again, it should

01:31:47--> 01:32:23

serve as a reminder for us is not just about either agree with it or disagree with I think most Muslims, if you explain this idea to them, they will agree with it. But this verse should serve as a reminder for us that can't find the Vic Latin, meaning remind, because reminders benefit the believers even we need to be reminded the best Muslim in the world, the person who's, you know, so pious or whatever even they need to be reminded, Listen, are you now giving preference to your own likes and dislikes over the commands of Allah Subhana Allah, we need these reminders for ourselves, what I want you to reflect upon, and Subhanallah I actually wanted to go into the next verse as

01:32:23--> 01:32:26

well, but we don't have time we're out of time.

01:32:27--> 01:32:57

But where Allah has kinda went to Allah says, and placed on their site or Allah, and Allah is trying to he places where I bust out of here to shower, and he places upon their site, a cover. What is the difference between in the previous section of this verse, Allah says, Allah says, You can be the light sealed, or their their their hearing in their hearts have become sealed? That's very, it's done. It's definitive verses now Allah says, and Allah places upon their,

01:32:59--> 01:33:36

their their sight, a cover, the site could have been eradicated in the site here is not, you know, obviously, hopefully, we understand this is not literal site, right? This is the site of knowing right from wrong, and so on and so forth. Right. So what is the significance of a cover being placed? A last point that I mentioned, a cover that is placed upon the site versus the site itself being taken away? I don't know if I ask that question clear enough. Hopefully, it's clear in sha Allah, but what is, what is the significance of that? Insha? Allah, I see some answers in the chat, good stuff, but if you could raise your hand, that'd be good. Inshallah.

01:33:39--> 01:34:15

Let me just tell you one benefit of raising your hand, by the way versus the chat. The chat is gone. Okay. So once you say something in chat, it's 100. It's excellent. And we can all read it we can benefit from or whatever. But the recording of this Quran reflect stays that and Maghrib. It's on my YouTube channel as well. It's there, I don't know forever, but for a long time, right, and many people access it. So when you talk about knowledge that keeps benefiting others, and knowledge that you keep getting rewarded for it, that's the way to do it. Right? You mentioned something on camera, or at least you turn on your mic. Other people benefit from it. You don't know SubhanAllah 10 years

01:34:15--> 01:34:33

later, someone comes back into listen to this recording, and they hear a wonderful reflection from you and it impacts their life and you can you get rewarded for that and have done that. That's that's the beauty of that. Even though someone's saying it can make us nervous. I understand that. I understand that. But if you'd like to share, go ahead and raise your hand and shovel.

01:34:34--> 01:34:35

Let's get some quick reflection.

01:34:36--> 01:34:59

I'm sold on sharing absolutely, that that's a good sales pitch there. So let's see. Let's go with any set from London, or you can go and unmute and share with us inshallah. So hello. I can set up I think the IRS has it covered is a cover I think there was interpreted as a room for Tober. So a lot of that completely sealed it. There's always that

01:35:00--> 01:35:25

room for the person to make Toba and to repent for their sins or come back. So it's not completely blind because they're still a living person. So there's always room to make Toba for the sins that are committed. No, very good, very good. So I'll cover as a cover can be if it's placed on it can be removed. And there's an opportunity for a person to make Toba and regain their sight now, very good, very good. Who else do we have? Let's go with several Jimmy.

01:35:34--> 01:35:36

Slowly, like set on law.

01:35:38--> 01:35:50

And yeah, I was gonna just kind of say that, just like the others mentioned that there's always an opportunity for each and every one of us to get the forgiveness. So long as you don't

01:35:52--> 01:36:15

you're not arrogant in your action in believing that the little in that little scene that you think is literal, it's not literal, you you do anything that Allah says don't do or the prophesied Salam advise us to stay away from? You do it. And then like, for example, the other day, I'm about to give this example, I was talking to someone over the front of like, why is it that now people

01:36:17--> 01:36:42

take this to be a culture, when you went into Ramadan, everyone, the first five, five days everyone's like, Oh, Madonna, Madonna Buddha. But after the first five days, people are into Eid. And everything that we set our mind on is just to get it close Eid parties here and there type of a message reaching and forgetting the main purpose of that Ramadan. That way is it really if after the first five days, people are thinking about it

01:36:44--> 01:36:56

a lot after that I was having someone very close to me. And they're like, Oh, I'm so busy. I'm called something like, you have children. Your your, your interest and your focus is sifted sometimes to

01:36:57--> 01:37:02

try. Can we? Can we turn that into a positive thing though? Is there a way to make that up something positive?

01:37:03--> 01:37:48

I'm not saying it's not positive. But then again, where is the where's the priority? So look, let me let me let me suggest something a shot. Alana, this is way off topic. But just suggest something. If someone you find is first five days, they're thinking about either whatever. One of the things that we could say to this person is imagine how amazing how much more amazing it will feel when you feel when you've dedicated yourself during the month of Ramadan. Right where you feel like you've really really worked hard and now this is the reward for that right so make your eat as enjoyable as possible. By working hard during Ramadan right? Do you think Yeah. Oh girl Oh, we get that

01:37:49--> 01:38:13

100 I'm very good Exactly. Love it. Exactly. Love it. Thank you for thank you for for sharing. If third parties. Look, I don't have time to get into third parties. And Pamela we talked about on my podcast you can you can check out another shameless plug for my podcast where we talked about if third party that gave all my thoughts on if third parties. But once again, there's pros and cons about if third parties as well. Let's take I think Do we have another hand? Last person in sha Allah

01:38:14--> 01:38:22

will will close their children off with a quick reflection in sha Allah yes all the way to France with my sister. Okay, Michelle law

01:38:26--> 01:38:55

that I'm ready Can Can you hear me? Well, I can sit down I'm gonna have to love we can hear you and Allah. So about reserve, I wasn't thinking of it as in. There's room for tobacco because as I said, Qatar Malik will be him. So it kind of feels like it's final. I was more thinking of it as in there have this Risha was discovered during the dunya. And during the era discovery is going to be taken off. And so they're going to see like what they did, they're going to finally see the truth. So the truth

01:38:56--> 01:39:30

to current Yes, that is excellent. Excellent. 100, not 100. i We decided to call on you before we end the session today. Very good. So if we shove a share, what gives the gives the meaning or the understanding or what we can learn with that is that something has been covered up right. So the truth is being covered up from this person they have, in a sense, they really covered they're hiding themselves from the truth and that covering yes, definitely on the day of judgment and the extra that will be removed and a person will be able to see with clarity Subhanallah the truth of their actions and you know, going back to the first part of the verse,

01:39:31--> 01:39:46

the truth of them giving preference or priority to their desires over Allah has Panwa data hamdulillah excellent, excellent, excellent reflections. We'll go ahead and end here. We'll have to add an item to Hanoch Hola, como behenic a shadow Allah.

01:39:47--> 01:39:49

Still forget what to wear like

01:39:51--> 01:39:59

jazz acapella Haydn, and thank you so much aside for blessing us once again. It's been a pleasure to spend some time with you and to go over that

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

First I think someone mentioned that we actually we actually covered this in last year's session as well so I'd be curious to see kind of how our reflections have evolved between last year and and this year. Did we cover this last year? Someone said in the in the comments that we didn't say reflections last time I picked the same verse. I know it was organic Yeah, that's the thing is like, right it just shows you just how how, how to last. Okay, okay, good good. I'm good. Yeah, that's that'd be very interesting to see what the different reflections panel a very good HANDLER handler good I was just recording still up there. Still up. Still up.

01:40:40--> 01:40:43
