00:05:51--> 00:05:55

So today Jhala data, our story very quickly,

00:05:56--> 00:06:01

is about a woman who was mentioned in the Quran. And she's

00:06:02--> 00:06:45

one of the villains of the Quran. Actually, Allah Subhana Allah says, temperature, that'd be the happiness or the be laminaria thought ology temperature that cursed are the hands of a Buddha. What up and they've perished, and they have perished perished the hands of Abu Lahab. And they have perished. The province of Elijah said, at the beginning of his message, he's told by ALLAH SubhanA, Allah when there are Sheila tickle Academy, first people he's told toward are his own people, his own family, his own tribe. And so he goes up to the top of a mountain and he proclaims, and this is something that, you know, obviously, this, whether it's the speed of sound, or whether you're going

00:06:45--> 00:07:18

up to a high place, this is the way for your voice to be projected, it was the equivalent of a siren. And so he calls the people forward and everybody comes rushing, and it's abnormal and homicidal. Elijah said, up until that point in his life, he's not somebody who is about drama, or controversy or attention or anything. And he calls out to people and he says, If I told you that there was an army behind me, coming attack me, would you believe me? And they said, Yes, we've never experienced in line before. And he says that I am the messenger said to you before painful punishment.

00:07:20--> 00:08:03

And so everyone's kind of quiet. Nobody really addresses him, except for his uncle, his father's brother, Abu Lahab. And Abu Lahab says, turbine laka salad yo, me Hi, there J Matera. He says, May you be cursed for the remainder of the day? May you perish for the remainder of the day. Is this why you gathered us and this man, Abu Lahab His name is Abdullah Rosa, the slave of it was and he's one of the 10 Sons of the mortality of the mortality of had 10 sons, only for live to see the messenger ship of Rasulullah civili. They said, The only four of them six of them would perish. Before the Prophet became a messenger, including the prophets Father, Son, Elijah said and them now of the

00:08:03--> 00:08:45

four, two of them accepted Islam and two of them didn't the two who didn't Subhanallah they were both named after idols. So Abdullah Riza, Abu Lahab, and Abdul Manaf. Abu Dhabi, both of them did not accept Islam. And you have Hamza and Bess with two uncles over prophesizing them who became companions. And so Abu Lahab is named Abdullah is that but ALLAH SubhanA data doesn't use his name in the Quran, obviously, because Allah is not going to affirm servitude to anyone other than Him in the Quran. So Allah doesn't call him Abdullah is he doesn't affirm servitude to others. Rather he calls him a Buddha, he's the father of flame, that means flame and have the meanings why it is

00:08:46--> 00:09:26

mentioned that his name was the father of flame is because he had a a smoldering look to him. He was he had rosy cheeks and it was symbolic of his beauty. He was someone who was considered to be very attractive. And he has this couldn't yet this nickname of a Buddha. But Allah Subhana Allah the Prophet doesn't respond to Abu Dhabi, the prophets lie Selim is a forbearance individual naturally and it would make sense that he would be even more forbearing towards his family members and Abu Lahab sons are married to two daughters of the prophets of Allah days and wouldn't have two sons are married to the two daughters or two of the daughters a little so what's up? So it's a very awkward

00:09:26--> 00:09:51

scenario. And yet Allah Subhana Allah says in Allah, how you Daffy or any levena Ave, Allah defends the believers in every time and place, apply defensive believers and of course, the greatest believer to be defended is also the last little lie they said them and so the verses are revealed templated that'd be that'd be no tip. No, the hands of Abu Lahab are the ones that are going to perish. And they have my mother died whom I to whom I said

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

what Abu Lahab gathered of wealth

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

is not going to benefit

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

To him, these Mushrikeen these disbelievers they would look at things so simplistically at times. And so Abu Lahab said, if there's a day of judgment, then I'm just going to bail myself out. I'm gonna bail myself out with my money, and with my sons. I mean, there's got to be a price, right? Everybody's got a price. And so I'm just going to whatever that price is, I'm going to pay for it. Allah subhana data says, No matter other than whom I know matters of your wealth, and your money is not going to benefit you on the Day of Judgment, say US law now than that, and he's going to reach a fire that is filled with lab, it's a play on the exact same name. And so you have Abby that had been

00:10:42--> 00:11:20

with him, and you have c'est la nada. And that set up something interesting I heard she had that dimension about the Quran is he says that there is not a single chapter of the Quran, no matter how concise and we don't call the chapters of the Quran small because there's not a single, there's not a single chapter that is small, they're all big. They're all gigantic and vast and majestic and grandiose every chapter of the Quran, but we call them concise. You don't say Surah Surah You say Surah where Jesus it's a concise Surah of the Quran. It's not made up of a lot of words, but no matter how concise the surah is, it carries words that you will find unique to that surah. And so

00:11:20--> 00:12:05

ALLAH SubhanA data says temperature that I'd be wrapping up you don't find that anywhere in the Quran. You don't find the code or anywhere other than assorted codes that you don't find that matter when anywhere except in Southern Maryland. You don't find a suburb anywhere except to sort of a lifeless, like you have this miraculous nature to the Quran. No matter how concise the surah is, it still has these unique qualities itself even within itself. In any case, ALLAH SubhanA dataset says line out on that he will reach a fire that is filled with flames. And this is an indication of the miraculous nature of the Quran. The prophecy of the Quran one of the easiest ways that Abu Lahab

00:12:05--> 00:12:33

could have this proven the Quran is this surah came down right at the beginning of the messenger ship of Rasulullah cellulitis and Abu Lahab doesn't die until after the Battle of budget. So that's 15 years have gone by Abu Lahab could have easily disproven the Quran, how could you be easily disproven the Quran? He could have said the Quran says that I'm going to enter into the Hellfire that Allah illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah, bam, just disproven the Quran.

00:12:35--> 00:12:38

His wife is going to be in the hellfire.

00:12:39--> 00:13:16

Lila and Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah disproven the Quran. But isn't it amazing how ALLAH SubhanA data diverted the heart and mind of Ebola and his wife from ever thinking of even taking the shahada right at the beginning of the messenger ship, these people their their their fate is sealed. They're going to be of the people of the Hellfire. And for 15 years of love and his wife go on that exact same trajectory. They don't veer off of it for a second. One of the things that makes a Buddha and his wife both so vile, and his wife, her name is OOM. Jimmy, she is Ottawa, the daughter of

00:13:18--> 00:13:28

she is Ottawa, the daughter of Abu sister of Abu Sofia, even hotter. So she's AutoWeb into help. She is from the nobility of Kadesh. She's Abu Sofia and sister.

00:13:30--> 00:13:46

And I'm Jimmy and Abdullah have, of course, Abu Dhabi in particular, Abu Dhabi is the he's the uncle of the province of allied smo. I mean, they lived in a society where whether your blood was right or wrong, you shed blood for them.

00:13:47--> 00:13:58

You lived and died in defense of your family no matter what whether they're right then that's great. And if they're wrong, I'm still by your side until the end. And that's the attitude that Apple bought him had for him. It's a little bias.

00:13:59--> 00:14:36

And that's the attitude that everybody has for their Klansmen. Abu Lahab broke every rule whether it was an Islamic rule or whether it was a tribal rule when it came to the rule of law civil law it I set it up like they're vitriol and their hatred for the Prophet cellulitis alarm was just unceasing and it didn't even make sense. OMG I mean, not only is inspiring, you know her husband, to increase his attacks against the province, the lives and number she actually goes to inspire her brother was a Fiat. And so she's walking around trying to ignite and that's what ALLAH SubhanA Dieter mentions in the next verse, he says one would have to have man at that hubbub and she's the unnamed in the

00:14:36--> 00:15:00

Quran, right? His wife is the have Mela. She is the carrier of wood. And one of the meanings of carrier of wood that if the facility mentioned a number of meanings of this phrase, is this a metaphor? Is this literal that she's going to be a carrier of wood in the hellfire? Is it a metaphor to her inciting against other people because one of the meanings of of this concept of

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

a carrier of would mean somebody who's an instigator. Somebody who's an instigator. And so even in English we would say this person fuels flames of discord this person feels that fuels the fire. A person who walks around. This is the Arabic word for this is an Amina meme. The meme is somebody who goes, and they say, Man, did you hear what so and so said about you? That's crazy. Yeah, yeah. If that was me, I would have punched him in the mouth. Right? So you're going and you're you're, you're stoking flames. I can't believe what that sister said. Or really, that sister did that. And she did this. Oh, that's, that's really, to me. That's disrespect. I don't know about you. But that's right.

00:15:42--> 00:16:18

And so you're sitting there instead of reconciling between people, which is what the believer does, you're stoking the flames. And this the province of aliveness and I'm passed by two people who were in being punished in their graves. The hadith is oberheiden Muslim, and he says, Hi, Daddy Liu, the ban, these people are both being punished, and they're not being punished for something that's big, meaning they're not being punished for something that is seemingly big amongst people. What is the first one as for the first one kind of am she bidding me money? That first person is an instigator, they would go around and they would steal claims. And by the way, a lot of where people stoke flames

00:16:18--> 00:16:39

and instigate is online. It's online, maybe you don't walk around and But online, I jump on hashtags. I don't have information. I sit and I, you know, there's an incident that happens. There's the latest scandal on Muslim social media and I'm coming in and I'm just adding fuel to the fire. Because everybody's got their two cents. So I'm coming with 50 I'm bringing $1

00:16:41--> 00:16:50

stoking the flames as opposed to seeking to reconcile so Allah Subhana Allah says, one would have to have made it a part of something very interesting is that ALLAH SubhanA data doesn't call him.

00:16:52--> 00:16:54

He says, his his woman,

00:16:55--> 00:17:31

his woman, if you look up the translation, and it says his wife, that's not correct. Allah says his woman is the is the carrier of would his woman and you'll see in the Quran in a lot of places Allah Subhana Allah Allah us in Morocco, so ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, a lot of Allah who method and the lady in a California Murata, no hang on Murata lot. The Allah strikes an example for the disbelievers, the woman of Nora and the woman of loot. And Allah subhanho data says a lot of Allahumma said that we live in an era to fill out ALLAH SubhanA data says the woman of throne

00:17:32--> 00:17:56

but when it comes to Adam and his wife Hawa, Allah says yeah, Adam was good answer was ojochal Jana, Allah uses the word Zuge, which indicates Zuge Allah Subhana Allah are the words or indicates a pair. Y'all are a pair, y'all y'all match. But as yet the wife of her out she doesn't match for her out. She's a believer, and he's a disbeliever. And

00:18:01--> 00:18:32

the wife of Luke doesn't match the rules. He's a believer, and she's not. And the wife of Nora who doesn't match nor she is a believer. He's a believer, and she's not. And so Allah subhanaw taala uses the word Imamura. The woman have to indicate that disconnect between the actual husband and wife, but then you might ask yourself a question and say, Well hold on a second. But Abu Lahab is a disbeliever. And his wife is just believers. So they're matching each other. They're matching each other in disbelief, but they're not matching each other with regards to the objective of marriage.

00:18:34--> 00:18:52

Marriage is supposed to be a place of tranquility and serenity and that is something that is anchored by Iman. It's something that's anchored by faith. They don't have that. So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada doesn't use the word Zote for them. Allah subhanaw taala uses it for Adam and his wife because they had Iman and they're grounded.

00:18:55--> 00:19:15

Okay, Allah Subhana Allah data says one but I do have metadata. So he said, the first meaning of harmala is the person who ignites or insights of the meanings that included in harmala is homolytic hottap is her stinginess. But she is a woman who is incredibly stingy, because

00:19:17--> 00:19:22

like, you're supposed to be wealthy. And so if you're wealthy and your kid, you're a carrier of wood.

00:19:24--> 00:19:59

You know, you might have a person who who is refuses to hire help, just because they don't want to pay them. I'll do it myself. Right. This is looked at as something that is a manifestation of of stinginess when it comes to that particular level of society, specifically in the Arabic context at that period of time. And so to be cast, with the accusation of stinginess, is actually to be cast with the worst of attributes. Just like generosity is the best of attributes. You know, the Arabs, they looked and they said, What's the best attribute out of all of the attributes was the best and they found it to be

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

cutoff. They found it to be generosity. And that's why the word kitty and actually indicates perfection. It doesn't mean it doesn't mean generosity per se, but because generosity is considered to be the best attribute of perfection. Now when you say the word Kadeem, you use the terminology, although it means perfection. Technically, it has been overwhelmed by generosity because it's considered to be the most perfect attribute. And so if that's the most perfect attribute, then stinginess is considered to be the worst.

00:20:30--> 00:20:46

And this is an indication of her stinginess at number three, of course. It's her literally carrying wood in the hellfire. Fiji via habited main method on her neck is going to be a rope of method method is you know, like

00:20:48--> 00:21:13

palm fiber, palm fiber, you know, like the LUFA that you use to scrub your body how it's very harsh material. That is the palm fiber that she will have on her neck. She had a she had a necklace that was very, very valuable. And she had like this beautiful amulets that was incredibly expensive and she used to say, I am going to sell this so that I can finance or get some cellulitis.

00:21:15--> 00:21:26

So Allah Subhana Allah says no, she was going to have a rope of fire on the Day of Judgment. That's what she's going to have Fiji there have remember set this woman

00:21:28--> 00:21:30

when sorted, that message was revealed.

00:21:31--> 00:21:35

She went to go look for the province of Iceland and she was carrying rocks in her hand.

00:21:36--> 00:21:46

And she found a worker sitting at the Gabba and Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was right next to her work. But Allah Subhana Allah snatched

00:21:48--> 00:21:53

the vision of the Prophet sallallaahu salam from our eyes, he literally became invisible in front of her she couldn't see it.

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

And she came up to Abu Bakr and she said, I heard that your friend has insulted me in poetry. Hijab is a Arabic poem that is used to insult so it's like how we would have a diss record or a diss track.

00:22:11--> 00:22:14

And I will work with the law and he says no, he didn't.

00:22:15--> 00:22:26

And he's not lying because number one, the province of Elias didn't do anything. It's ALLAH SubhanA data. Number two, it wasn't poetry, it's the Quran. It's completely different. But she comes up and she says,

00:22:27--> 00:22:53

I heard that he insulted me and poetry. Well I write poetry to muda mamoun Avena or Umbra who assign our Drina, who kalaignar modem is the opposite of the name Hammond. Muda means the one who is praiseworthy. I'm sorry, Mohammed means the one who's praiseworthy. It comes from hemp. And that means the blameworthy it comes from blame. Okay, well that means the blaze Murthy. It comes from them, which is blame.

00:22:54--> 00:23:12

So, like third graders Quraysh started calling him with them instead of Muhammad. So instead of calling him the praiseworthy one, they didn't refer to him with that name. They would only call him with a mum the blameworthy one. And so she says muda Maamoun Avena.

00:23:14--> 00:23:40

We have rejected with them. What Amaura who asked her in and we have disobeyed his command where Dena who and his religion we have hated Elena Carla means the hate Mauer dakara book, our map color. Allah says your Lord hasn't forsaken you nor has he hated you. So she says, Do you know who kind of you know we? So she hits him with those little nursery rhymes that nobody cares about? And then she walks away.

00:23:42--> 00:24:02

The province of Elijah is that a man looks at Abu Bakr and he says isn't it amazing? How Allah Subhana Allah data has diverted courageous abuse away from me courageous insults away from me. The one that they are naming the one that they are calling is Muslim. And my name is Mohamed Salah light is

00:24:03--> 00:24:43

like that's not gonna hurt me. You're insulted you came up with somebody different name. And and that's not me. That's not me. So the province of Allah is setting them shows incredible intelligence, emotional intelligence, the prophets of Allah said shows incredible gratitude to Allah, like all of these verses of poetry. If it was literally Muhammad that they said, it would be awkward for us to even recite them. We wouldn't even recite them. But the fact that they altered the name and they changed it to move them by the way for my West Africans, or my West Africans, something beautiful that I was told about West Africans. I don't know if there's anybody here who's

00:24:43--> 00:24:44

West African.

00:24:45--> 00:24:47

But you you come across a lot of like,

00:24:48--> 00:24:59

names that are altered a little bit. So it will be Fathima two, and it will be Amadou. Amadou and it will be

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

Having to do and it will be Asia to write. And that little alteration is done out of reverence for the name.

00:25:11--> 00:25:50

That little alteration that's done to the name is done out of reverence for the name so that nobody comes and says, I hate I Isha, I should sit down. Nobody says that out of reverence for the name Aisha, the greatest companion and the Mother of the Believers. And so what do they do? They name Aisha to now i Aisha to is my daughter, you can insult her as much as you want, right? Or I'm gonna do so that nobody is insulting the name admits, but rather you come up with I'm gonna do now I'm gonna do you can talk about how I'm gonna do is achieved, you know, whatever. You can, you can talk about I'm gonna do all day. But don't insult. Like this is a manifestation of Eman and it's

00:25:50--> 00:25:54

something that's very, very beautiful. Okay, so in any case.

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

So

00:25:58--> 00:26:02

she says move them on eBay in our Dena Hokulea ombre who are safe. Now.

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

The province of ally de cela mentions that

00:26:07--> 00:26:09

then you have

00:26:11--> 00:26:20

of the animosity that they showed the prophets of Allah they said was the divorcing of the daughters of Rasulullah sallallahu.

00:26:22--> 00:26:39

And so to add even like there's there was no shame. There was nothing that these two partners in crime didn't want to do. And so they have the two sons divorces, Rasulullah days and his daughters to add even more stress to the Prophet saw the light is heaven.

00:26:40--> 00:26:42

And Earth by his son

00:26:43--> 00:26:56

comes to the Prophet divorces his daughter, and spits at the profits level. Midas doesn't reach the problem, but he splits in his direction. It's incredible disrespect, it's incredibly vital. And so

00:26:57--> 00:27:23

the province cellulitis and it makes it and he says Allahumma sala de la he killed them in Kedah, Kilpatrick. He says, Oh Allah, unleash on him, a dog from among your dogs on leash on him a dog from your dogs. And so, Abu Lahab and his son are on a trip to a shop. They're on a trip to a shop to business, how they go and make their trips to Syria.

00:27:24--> 00:27:41

And they descended on an area that one of the people there said y'all need to be careful. There's a lot of predatory animals out here. We know here's predatory animals, and he's like, Oh my god, they used to fear the drought, the province of colitis. And they used to fear the drought that was made in the Kaaba.

00:27:42--> 00:27:51

So Ebola tells the whole guy and he's like, listen, everybody needs to be on guard with the rest of my son because I am afraid of the Dr. Mohamed, Salah ladera center.

00:27:53--> 00:27:54

And yet

00:27:57--> 00:28:06

a serpent and it was said that it was a lion came and approached their camp in the middle of the night and attack to nobody except for killing him.

00:28:07--> 00:28:10

So that drives the province, a little light is hitting them.

00:28:11--> 00:28:17

Oh Allah on leash on him a hound from your house, a dog from your dogs would manifest in the killing of

00:28:18--> 00:28:34

how did Abu Lahab himself die. We don't have anything about how jimmied herself died. But how Abu Lahab himself died was incredible humiliation. After the battle, the budget, the battle the bed that happens and if we don't have didn't go because he was sick. And

00:28:36--> 00:29:24

he's waiting for the news. And the news comes back that it is a absolute obliteration of their army, and that many of their leaders were killed. And one of the messengers coming and he's telling Abu Dhabi about this. And remember an ibis, his brother had went and was captured at budget by his wife, and and she's a believer, and so is the servant boy at our best. He's just a young boy. And so Abu Lahab is hearing the story. And the man says the messenger says, and there were people dressed in white that we never saw before. And these guys are just doing incredible damage. And so the boy says Wallahi those are the angels. Those are the angels. You were so excited. And I would have turns and

00:29:24--> 00:29:47

starts beating up on this kid. He's so vexed, and he's beating up on this boy. So our boss's wife takes like a staff or she takes like a board. She takes some some big and she hits a Buddha up off of her servant. And she says are you taking advantage of him? You're beating up because his masters got like an Abbas's a year. That's why you're beating him up in any case.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

So he gets that smack, and then he continues to deteriorate in his house. And it was a disease that the Arabs viewed to be contagious.

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

And so he literally dies by himself. But not only does he die by himself, but he's not even buried for days. Nobody is afraid to touch it until polish comes in. They say to their kids, they're like, Listen, this is this is this is disgrace for your, for your for your father, y'all need to bury him and so they wash him from a distance and they toss him away

00:30:23--> 00:30:37

and Abu Lahab is cut off will have his cut off and his wife on Jamil as well are cut off from all goodness and ALLAH SubhanA wa Didymos best. So this is

00:30:39--> 00:30:47

a short introduction to two of the most wicked of those who lived during the time of the prophets and the lighters

00:30:50--> 00:30:50

and their end

00:30:53--> 00:31:26

is that Kamala fairshake Omar for that somehow we've actually touched on this topic we were just discussing already in Ramadan 360 But that retelling of it, mashallah and those relatable examples were completely different and completely mind blowing mashallah, I know a lot of people will have questions, especially in terms of some of the relations and some of the, the I guess, connections and analogies that she from are made. So please feel free to start thinking of your questions. Now. She will be back with you in about 10 minutes or so or just under that, to ask you some heavy questions. Before we say our slabs Central, we'll see you in a second. For now in sha Allah, we're

00:31:26--> 00:32:00

going to jump into a really important part of today's broadcast in sha Allah, I wanted to start with a quick reminder, you're right, Ibrahim, we haven't been doing enough wheel spins, that's been noted. Let's check Amar take that and note as well. Let's see if we can squeeze out a few Inshallah, in today's session. But before we do that Alhamdulillah we have with us some of our amazing friends at h h rd. And they have an amazing reminder for us as well. But I want to start off with a beautiful video that I'm going to share my screen right now and you guys please let me know in the chat if you can hear it. And that the audio and the video and whatnot is going smoothly before we

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

started off. So Bismillah let me know.

00:32:03--> 00:32:07

Every Ramadan we enjoy family gatherings and elaborate feasts that come with it.

00:32:09--> 00:32:27

But there are many that are hungry and don't know where their next meal is coming from. By drought the economy is flailing due to sanctions. Unemployment of understand is one of the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, defined by rising conflict, displacement and natural disasters.

00:32:31--> 00:32:37

The escalating conflict has increased the suffering of millions and caused widespread food insecurity.

00:32:41--> 00:32:47

countless families living in poverty, go without food and water on a daily basis.

00:32:48--> 00:32:49

They must say the

00:32:52--> 00:32:52

month

00:32:56--> 00:33:12

our brothers and sisters in Afghanistan need our help this Ramadan, join Helping Hand USA in our efforts to save lives. With your support, we can provide aid to Afghan families who are in desperate need right now.

00:33:39--> 00:34:29

So my brother from Jersey City awesome. Masada is here. And pass him is old school Dhruba just so you guys know like don't think this is helping hands right now. This is this is another live blood. This is awesome was the the marketing director of Kavita dooba that's in New Jersey. For those of you who don't know, back when doorbell was the most monster tabula in the world other than New York City, obviously other than New York. Hamdulillah. And, you know, he's a tireless worker for Islam ever since the days of him being a young member of young Muslims and ignite and hamdulillah I'm very happy that to see his face to be honest. And he is if he gives us the gift, if he gives us the gift,

00:34:29--> 00:34:34

his re citation is incredible. So we might I'm going to ask him after this to do

00:34:36--> 00:34:42

I'm going to ask him after this to do maybe a Quran in motion together inshallah. I learned so I can pass him

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

off to my broker to you completely threw me off. You know, I had my presentation and I was really glad mashallah, it's great to see you rock it's great to see you at hamdulillah May Allah blessing sha Allah, and I'll let I'll let you I'll let you do your presentation. I don't want to interrupt your

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

00:35:03--> 00:35:30

is closer to labor fix on like October catch everyone's minute hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah salam ala Vani was number one and he will be here Jemaine, it's great to be here. I jumped on early because my teacher, my chef, Amar, who is our Imam for many years in Jersey City Hamdulillah. And I had the pleasure of serving with him in the community and being there as his students for many, many years. Hamdulillah

00:35:31--> 00:35:39

you know, it's always an honor being anywhere near anything on Margaret really, you know, it's been 19 years since my first seminar with unmold with

00:35:40--> 00:35:56

dozens of seminars later on, though we're here together. For for an important reminder, in short, little Jada, just want to again, thank our group for choosing helping hand as its US charity partner, for this blessing month of Ramadan.

00:35:57--> 00:36:03

You know, we're our focus for this month, especially is of one stone, our brothers and sisters, there

00:36:04--> 00:36:12

are decades into conflict after conflict, you know, war after war.

00:36:13--> 00:36:57

sanctions, you name it, you know, they have experienced it all Subhanallah and helping hand of somebody that has been on the ground way before this current news cycle that more people got familiar with Alon Hassan with Hamza, we've been on the ground in Afghanistan for about 10 years now. And our goal really anywhere that we go, is to initially respond with emergency assistance, disaster response, the urgent needs, but then we stay there for as long as possible to assist with developmental programs. And really, that's our specialty is how do we take a beneficiary that needs food today that needs emergency assistance today, that needs shelter today? How do we take them from

00:36:57--> 00:37:45

this point, to make them into a self sustaining member of the society that they live in. And so that is what we've been doing. Over the last 10 years in Afghanistan, we have 1000 Orphans that we're actively taking care of 300 more in the pipeline, we have a skills development center there where we take mainly widows, women who need to provide for their families need an income for their families, and teach them the skills that are relevant for the societies that they live in, that they can now go and earn a living with. Humbly, then we have more than 130 water projects, their education is something that we are impressing upon many of the families there to send their kids to school, and

00:37:45--> 00:38:06

we're working with them to provide education for them. And so the need is obviously great. You know, the UN Development Program is predicting that by the end of June, they will have what's called universal poverty, where almost 100%, there's a 97% of the entire population will be living below the poverty line,

00:38:07--> 00:38:27

which is completely devastating. I mean, their standard to begin with is very low, it's $1.90 a day, anyone living above $1.90 in Afghanistan is considered above the poverty line. And so their prediction by the end of June is that 97% of the country would have been below the poverty line.

00:38:28--> 00:39:13

They're currently experiencing the highest number of people in emergency food insecurity, that anywhere in the world. The World Food Program is saying that half of their country's 40 million population is acute food insecurity, which is the highest the country has ever seen. And how do I even so especially in a place like Afghanistan, where many of the households for various reasons, and I think we all know why the husband is not, there's no man to lead the household. And the society again, very dependent on the male being the head of the household. In cases where women are running the entire household 100% of those cases, in every single case, that family is food

00:39:13--> 00:39:58

insecure. And so our goal, really, there's three or four projects that we're focusing heavily on now and the link is there, and you can visit hr.org forward slash Multilib to get more information, but we are continuing our orphan sponsorship. So as I mentioned, about 300 orphans in the pipeline that we're bringing into our system to get sponsored. We have 135 water wells, we're looking to add on to that. Geographically, this is a country where it's very difficult in many parts of the country to get access to clean and pure drinking water. And so we're building water was in those areas, as well as healthcare healthcare is is a huge need as well. And so we're taking care of patients for just

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

$500 One of the packages

00:40:00--> 00:40:42

What you'll see is 125 Patients can be taken care of in sha Allah. And then the most basic need is food $50 For one family to sponsor their food for an entire month, we're still working around the clock to provide food assistance. Even as Ramadan comes to an end, that need will still be there even more so post Ramadan because they're getting a lot more help in Ramadan. But we're trying to make sure they have enough for several months in advance in sha Allah and so food is another thing that we're working on so you know definitely again we appreciate all your help all your support in sha Allah Tada whatever it is that you can do. In these last blessed nights of Ramadan we ask Allah

00:40:42--> 00:40:55

subhana wa Tada to accept it from all of you and all of us to allow it to weigh heavily on your skill of good deeds inshallah Tada I'll pause here turn it back to our sister half so inshallah vertical or frequent cinematic or Hawaii over okay.

00:40:57--> 00:41:29

At the life of Americans, which is Kamala Fairbrother, bison as well, for coming on once again, it's been a pleasure to have you twice on the Amazon 360 Program. Guys, so had a lot like, I can't say any more simply usually when you have we have we partner with a charity and you have an appeal often, you know, you can there's so many verses in the Quran, there's so much clearer guidance for us as Muslims, why we should be giving in charity, how it comes back to us how we were rewarded for it. In this case, all you need to know is just the fact SubhanAllah. Like it is such a tough, difficult, impossible situation. For the people who are experiencing it. May Allah protect us from

00:41:29--> 00:42:00

ever being in that position. I mean, yada, but let me just the link is there. It's H rd.org forward slash my mother, there's absolutely nothing else that needs to be said. Subhanallah we need to be part of that solution. We cannot be living in a world where there's people there are Muslims who are struggling, who are begging Allah who are crying in the month of Ramadan, and who are Subhanallah this close to being like 100% below the poverty line. Like that's, that's unthinkable. Let's make sure that we give as much as we can if you've given before please give again, please make sure that we are at the very least we heard it we're here we had an opportunity, even if you have $5 in your

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

bank account, give for the sake of Allah insha Allah and may Allah return it to you in abundance, I mean, you know, but I mean, once again, that's H rd.org forward slash on Maghrib on YouTube and Facebook, it's in your description, in zoom, we've dropped it into the chat we'll keep dropping it inshallah. But every time you see it, just let don't let anything hold you back and shuffle on your heart and make sure that you give to them as much as you can. You did an amazing job with the Forgotten woman campaign. And Al Hamdulillah we're doing the easy part, we're just parting with a little bit of money, there are volunteers giving up their lives their entire sanity, they're doing

00:42:28--> 00:42:58

as much as they can struggling to make sure they're providing that care and they're taking care of that amount on the ground. All we need to do is to lighten the burden to give as much as we can to support that so please make sure you do so check them out. We only have you for a couple more minutes in Sharla but I do want to make sure that we do take some some some seconds to answer some questions that we have on today's topic so insha Allah all that houses I still want to do this Quran in motion because y'all don't understand. We have I had a feeling I was like there's no way we're doing q&a today. I tried

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

but number one Number one I need I need 20 people to make a donation to help enhance and then just put your put a give me a thumbs up emoji when you do that. And I'm going to start I'm going to do it myself first inshallah Tada. So I'm number one and then I just need 90 More inshallah Tada To make a donation doesn't have to be a lot it can be a little whatever you can give me a thumbs up that you did it. That's it. Now the thumbs up that you will do it give me a thumbs up that you did in inshallah Can you share the link again Hafsa just so that we can make everybody we just need and a nice I did it from London mashallah London's always first to make things happen so we got one we've

00:43:40--> 00:43:45

got 200 People here just 20 inshallah Nazia that's too so that could look at and then we're gonna get

00:43:47--> 00:44:03

past him here to warm up his vocals can drink any shy right now obviously because of the fasting but we got three keep them coming guys Bismillah Allah subhanaw taala protect and bless we got it as one or is that's another London that's five

00:44:07--> 00:44:11

I got a private message that's six excellent seven Mashallah.

00:44:12--> 00:44:15

All right, so cuz I'm thinking let's do so let's

00:44:18--> 00:44:32

let's do solar, a solar class actually, let's just assume sort of the class just just easy and just stop at every verse, but just give us give us some of that. That selected Asia citation. That's 11

00:44:36--> 00:44:45

He has a passage of his that's my favorite passage. I always remember him Subhan Allah every time I hear it. And it's the end of Surah two Brahim, but for now, we'll just do sort of the philosophy.

00:44:48--> 00:44:49

You don't need to review it, do you?

00:44:50--> 00:44:53

Yeah, I'm pulling it up right now. Okay.

00:44:58--> 00:45:00

So this is a sign

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

thing I'm doing which is poetic of the Quran. I've been saying I've been doing it forever I need to finish it but Java hopefully this year we'll finish it but it's just going to be productive soon inshallah. And then in the meantime, we get up to 40, then we'll do another one, because I'm trying to not have this q&a. And then if we get up to 60, then I'll do another one. So that's that's how we'll go into all that data.

00:45:22--> 00:45:32

Awesome. Are you ready? Sure. Okay, yes, yeah, just give us every verse and just stop at every verse and then I'll come in and we'll go back and forth like that

00:45:37--> 00:45:43

Oh, although we learn in a shape on you're watching

00:45:45--> 00:45:51

this mean, you'll learn your washi

00:45:54--> 00:45:55

long

00:45:59--> 00:46:17

now there are five chapters of the Quran, that with the word save begin and follow us last night and Catherine and Jen now the word say decrees the Prophet upon who BPCE didn't alter the revelation received not in the least. And then the had the description exceeds but to be brief, the one and only with uniqueness indeed that doesn't cease.

00:46:18--> 00:46:21

oolongs saumon

00:46:23--> 00:46:34

Allah is a summit a summit is the master who not can speak after and the one you asked for in need and disaster yet he needs no one no partners and no son no internal organs no nutrition is needed. It's not a notion.

00:46:36--> 00:46:39

Them you only do one

00:46:41--> 00:47:08

Yeah, I have a question for you. Were you born first or did you have children first but Allah says he did not have children and he wasn't born. So He begets not nor was he begotten and the meaning of the gun has long been forgotten it means he has no children and no one has ever had and he negates children first before parents even though the circle of life is obviously oppositely apparent because most tracks the shape that shape bond brings because by associating to Allah not parents, but offspring

00:47:10--> 00:47:15

on him, you know gUfU had

00:47:17--> 00:47:34

and there's nothing like him. He has no partners, no equals no updates, no sequels, no angels, no people to think so is lethal to all those who are seeking God. He alone is the one to be feared and odd. He alone is the one to be revered and sought. He alone is the one and he loves the odd

00:47:36--> 00:47:41

that's it actually give us one more run of the entire store on your own. Please

00:47:42--> 00:47:43

be seen

00:47:45--> 00:47:48

you're walking

00:47:51--> 00:47:58

along had along saw Ahmed LEM nearly the

00:48:00--> 00:48:06

lead on him in you know who for 100

00:48:07--> 00:48:08

Allah Allah

00:48:09--> 00:48:11

zakat Sasha

00:48:12--> 00:48:13

time to do one more.

00:48:15--> 00:48:17

I'm here for you chef, whatever you need.

00:48:18--> 00:48:21

Let's do Surah Al falaka as also as our fellow

00:48:25--> 00:48:29

this mean your rush manual washy

00:48:31--> 00:48:31

on

00:48:32--> 00:48:35

beyond been fella.

00:48:37--> 00:48:46

Alpha follow up and another two chapters where we're instructed by the Divine to come to a safe place a safe space where he assigns us protection from the evil of everything

00:48:54--> 00:49:08

from the evil that he created, the evil of every human the evil of every Gen the evil of every creature, the evil of every sin. Don't forget about all of the evil that lies within and when reciting those words you come under the protection of the king.

00:49:09--> 00:49:13

Let me Sharon was up.

00:49:17--> 00:49:30

I love Asif is the night the majority of scholars say because under the cover of night is when evil comes out to play and the wicked come out to pray and the righteous resigned to pray. So we seek refuge in the lord of Daybreak and light from the evil in the darkness of the night.

00:49:33--> 00:49:33

Shell

00:49:35--> 00:49:38

Firth the Fiero code,

00:49:39--> 00:49:54

and from the evil of those who blow on knots now the practice of magic long ago was right off the bat. I'm talking real magic, not illusions or sleight of hand because magic was described by the prophet as a mortal sin because real magic in its essence involves the worship of the jinn.

00:49:56--> 00:49:58

Oh I'm sure

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

See?

00:50:04--> 00:50:38

And from the evil of those who envy now how can I describe to you how vile of a sin envious What if I told you that it was the first sin ever committed in the heavens making chiffons arrogance flare and for him to even dare to reject the commandment? Or what if I told you that it was the first sin committed on Earth making poverty kill his brother, turning a family into a fraction now, and we defined is pretty precise. It's not that you see something someone has an wish to have it to. It's that you see a blessing someone has a wish that blessing was removed. You wish they didn't have that money, wish they didn't have that house wish their kids weren't so special wish they didn't have

00:50:38--> 00:51:13

that spouse wish they didn't have those followers on that Instagram account and like fire burns would envy burns good deeds, and it creates animosity amongst those who believe the envy or creates hatred, tension and friction. They aren't those who they envy but they see themselves as the victim. So how can envy be removed from a heart that's diseased? First is to recognize that this is something that was destined and decreed long before we entered into this earthly abode? And second, when your heart tells you to envy just say no, don't ask Allah for them to have less ask Allah to increase their share and shaytaan will stop his whispers once he realizes that it only result in

00:51:13--> 00:51:14

your prayer.

00:51:16--> 00:51:39

Okay, this one more right just give us sort of the uninterrupted this mean, you learn you're working on moving on being fed up, Oh, me Shanina one apple, one share you lost and you bring in work

00:51:40--> 00:51:43

on sharing

00:51:45--> 00:51:53

hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who Allah and He will be on Willa Saramonic Martha live Ricardo. Today we are induced number 26. And just number 26 goes all the way from Surah. Off to that yet verse number 30. So all of the sorrows in between sort of hemorrhoids sort of alpha, and her gerat, sort of cough, and then as you said, a very of there yet until verse number 30. So, we will be reflecting on a couple of verses from one of my favorite songs in the Quran. And that is sort of off. When I first became Muslim, started practicing Islam, and started, you know, seeking knowledge. One of the first sutras that I started reciting was sort of off and it's just because, you know, we

00:55:50--> 00:56:25

have the CDs back in the days patent law, there was a CD that someone had given me that had like a bunch of different reciters on it. And one of the Subhanallah sutras that was on there was sort of off. And I loved the recitation of it and so I would listen to it a lot. And so it's one of the first songs that I really like paid attention to. So it's nice to always revisit this this sort of 100 Enough, but we are in Surah Kahf verses 16 and onwards. My goal is to try and get to 18 even 19 If we can I doubt it since sister helps us still most of our time today

00:56:27--> 00:56:29

but we'll try to see how far we get inshallah

00:56:30--> 00:56:58

Do you have someone lined up for us to receive obviously, we had a beautiful recitation right before so we're not trying to compete here. But if we can have someone recite for us insha Allah um, so we have a lot of hands all of a sudden and so I want to I wanted to to honor the hands Inshallah, let's see if there's someone please lower your hand if you've recited if you contributed to her on reflect before just to be on the safe side I think there's a new hidden recipe anti cancer. If you are with your mic, please unmute yourself and show let's hear from

sent exactly last year there was a wonderful beautiful recitation handed in

00:57:52--> 00:57:58

I noticed that your cloth color if you know that is strong, which is a little bit of

00:57:59--> 00:58:15

my teacher when I when I first started learning Quran on Egyptian teach actually traveled to Egypt and I spent a summer in Egypt that's where I started to learn how to memorize and recite the Quran and learn how to memorize the Quran as well those of you who were here yesterday or those of you who take

00:58:17--> 00:58:19

Quran was it called Quran revolution.

00:58:20--> 00:58:32

There's always talk about Muhammad EJ that's how that's how I was Quran like Muhammad is is the most important thing so you know, when I heard a stat was talking about I was like, Oh man, that kind of hurts. Like for me like Muhammad is is

00:58:33--> 00:59:12

is a big thing. But you know, my addiction teacher one of the things that he was he would focus on a lot is a very strong sometimes in their color color. So when you said we're not going to occur Rabu in a right so the thought that bouncing off, I was like, oh Subhanallah This is like the way I learned how to recite. So it's very nice presentation. 100 at the point of this is hamdulillah very nice presentation. Allah bless you and your family. I grant you the best of this life. And next Aloma mean, okay, let's break down these verses insha Allah and reflect a little bit. Allah who's panaway Dallas's or bIllahi min ash shaytani R Rajim Calacatta halacha in Santa Ana Allahu Madawaska

00:59:12--> 00:59:48

this will be enough so that indeed it is We Who created humankind and we know what their souls whisper to them basically what one whispers to themselves why not who aka Robert lay him in Hubble worried and we are closer to them than their jugular vein in the a telecoil mortality and the annual Yemeni were initially Madea carried that as the two receivers one to the right and one to the left are sitting. My Elfie Domina Colin Elana day here roundtable it that not a single word is spoken.

00:59:50--> 00:59:59

Other accept that there is a observer that is ready. And we'll break this down in sha Allah has data so the first verse, verse number 16, that we have what are called the Halacha

01:00:00--> 01:00:32

In Santa Ana, and then we'll move to West which will be enough. So Allah says, Indeed it is we meaning it is Allah, Who has created mankind that Allah can insert, we have created mankind and we know when that matter to us, we will be enough so, and we know that which they whispered to themselves. Now, the connection between Welaka, halacha and insaan, we are the ones who created human beings, and we know that which they whisper to themselves. It's, it's, it's to sense number one, if Allah is the One who created us, Allah, you know,

01:00:34--> 01:01:12

brought us into existence. And the last hideout is want to create it, our characteristics and our behavior, and so on and so forth. So it is Allah who created us created us to be a being that speaks to itself, right. So these internal thoughts, and this is what this was was referring to. This is not actual whispers. But this is an internal dialogue, right? That which we say to ourselves, that no one else has access to only we know what we're saying, on the inside, right? So this is what Allah is saying that, this thing that if you really think about and ponder on this very issue of this internal dialogue that we have, and it's actually very amazing, it's kind of law that no one

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

else in the world can access our thoughts except us. It's it's a very, very private, and intimate thing. And, you know, subhanAllah, when I was younger,

01:01:23--> 01:01:56

when I was a kid, sometimes it would almost feel to me, and I know, it's weird to say this, but it would feel to me like a superpower. Like, there's like, I'm, I'm thinking things in my head and like, you have no idea what I'm thinking. I know, it's weird, right? But like it was, it felt so special to me that I can think whatever I want, I can say whatever I want, like someone cusses me out, I'm like, in my head, I'm cussing you out back, like, you know, you have no idea what I'm saying. Which is wrong, we shouldn't do that. We're gonna talk about controlling those internal thoughts as well. But this idea that, you know, it's such an intimate, private thing, and is an

01:01:56--> 01:02:34

ability that Allah has given to us. He is the One who created us. And He created us with this ability, as well. Also the fact that Allah says, what effect Harlequin an insane, we have created human beings. We're not alone, we're meant to us, which will be enough. So. So an extension of that is, no one knows, right? But the one who created us has the ability to know, right? So Allah has not given this ability to other human beings, like people don't know or saying. But if we have any doubt that Allah knows that what we're thinking and what we're saying to ourselves, then remember that it is He is the One who created us in the first place. So obviously, he would have knowledge of what we

01:02:34--> 01:02:57

say to ourselves. Not only that, Allah subhanaw taala knows what we think to ourselves, what we say to ourselves, what we have said, what we are seeing right now, so we may be having thoughts right now. And even when I'm speaking, I know people are thinking things, you know, and sometimes we're not aware of what we're thinking, it just happens naturally. But now that I've called it out, you might start thinking about what you're thinking about, right? But

01:02:58--> 01:03:33

so we know what we're thinking right now that Allah knows what we're thinking right now. And Allah also knows what we will think to ourselves in the future. And that is knowledge that even we don't have for ourselves, right. So we, you know, we don't know tomorrow, what we're going to be thinking to ourselves, like what internal dialogue, we're going to be happening, that that that is going to that is going to happen. But Allah who's kind of like to Allah knows what we're going to think to ourselves, and that is part of once again, the greatness of Allah Subhan Allah as our Creator, the practical application of this for us of this verse, if you reflect on this verse, one of the

01:03:33--> 01:04:15

practical applications of this is, if Allah knows everything that we think to ourselves, then we should be aware of that. And we should be aware of its impact on us. So it's not something that just we think to ourselves, and it has no impact. If Allah knows about it, then obviously it has significance, right. And even in the field of psychology, we know that internal dialogue, and you know, negative thoughts and positive thoughts and you know, thinking positively and negatively, and all that has an impact on us and as an impact on our psychological well being and has an impact on our emotional well being. All of that is important. And here, Allah shaitana is reminding us of

01:04:15--> 01:04:55

that. Also, the practical application of this is that if Allah knows what we're thinking, that perhaps we should be careful. Because we shouldn't be shy in front of Allah. Right? So I talked about someone's customers out, we cut them out back, and we may think, like, no one knows. But Allah knows, right? And we want Allah who has Panama to Allah, to hear us saying things that are bad, or saying things that are inappropriate, or saying things that are immoral, so on and so forth. So having Laura Baba was another word, which is about to come up, but having maraca taking an account of ourselves and our internal thoughts. And definitely as we said it has an impact on our life. It

01:04:55--> 01:04:59

has an impact on our well being, and even SubhanAllah. It has an impact on our B

01:05:00--> 01:05:02

havior those of you who took

01:05:03--> 01:05:32

deception with me a class that I hate is Pamela, I refer to quite a lot. We talked about cutting off negative thoughts, right? So when a person is triggered, and you know, they're feeling angry, and their mind is flooded with, you know, this, this negative, negative conversation, these negative thoughts, one of the ways we cut that off is by saying, The bIllahi min ash shaytaan. The regime, right, I seek refuge in Allah from from the sheer fun, because if we don't, then it can impact our behavior, it may

01:05:33--> 01:05:50

make us act out or act upon those negative thoughts. We know that a lot doesn't hold us to account for those negative thoughts, unless we act upon them. And that's either through speech or through action. But the point is, if we don't cut them, cut them,

01:05:52--> 01:06:15

cut an end to it, cut them off, then there's more of a chance that we will be held to account to account for it. So for example, someone thinks to themselves, I don't like so and so right? or so and so is annoying, and I don't like them. And every time they do something, we think, Oh, they're so annoying. I don't like them this and this. And are we now sinful? For those negative thoughts? No, we're not sinful for that.

01:06:16--> 01:06:57

The person who sent them said in a lot to jail was the mighty, mad, mad had that we and Prusa that Allah has forgiven for my ummah, that which they speak to themselves about. So those thoughts we're not held to account for but we are held to account for not trying to block off those thoughts or cut off those thoughts so that we don't act upon them. Because once we do act upon them, then we are sinful, right? If we act upon them in a sinful way, may Allah who's planning to Allah protect us. So the point here is, you know, a lot of times we feel like these internal thoughts are out of our control. To a certain degree, that may be true, but we have a responsibility to try and end them or

01:06:57--> 01:07:18

to try to cut them off or to replace them with positive thoughts. Then Allah whose handwriting Allah says, We're not going to Accra boo II mean heavily and worried and we are closer to them, then they're then the jugular vein, but what is meant here is their jugular vein right? So Allah is closer to us than our jugular.

01:07:19--> 01:07:23

vein. That's, that's, that's one way of looking at this.

01:07:25--> 01:08:07

One interpretation is that ALLAH SubhanA, Allah is saying that we are, Allah is closer to us than our jugular vein. Right? So this is so close. Another interpretation of this verse is that when Allah said and we are closer to them, this is referring to the angels that the angels are closer to them than their jugular vein. Now, what is the evidence for that? Well, the next verse, Allah has tried to out refers to the angels, right? And there's different opinion on this issue. Those who said that Allah is closer to us, right? This closest of Allah, they say what this means is Allah is close to us in his knowledge, and and close to us in terms of Allah knows everything that we say and

01:08:07--> 01:08:09

everything that we do and so on and so forth.

01:08:10--> 01:08:50

So, like I said, differences opinion either way, doesn't really matter. The point is that Allah has Panama data knows even the most intimate details every single thing that we say to ourselves or that we attach ourselves every thought that we have, Allah who has power to Allah is aware of this. Now the closeness of Allah, this is not something that has been mentioned only once. This has been mentioned many many times in the Quran in the Sunnah send them for example, Susan Bukhara loves pinata, Allah says what either said about the money but in the Clary, that if my servant asks you about me tell them that I am near. So the nearness and closeness of Allah is mentioned many times

01:08:51--> 01:09:33

another Hadith that we mentioned before, a caribou Maya kulula mineraI, who says that the closest a servant is to their Lord is when they are in a state of such depth. Now, this closeness of Allah who has Panama to Allah, one of the things that we learned from this Subhanallah is that Allah can be near and far to us, right? Allah can be closer to us and Allah can be far away from us. And as we increase in good deeds, luck gets closer to us. And there are certain times when Allah who has power to Allah is closer to us, we know that Allah is trying to descend from the heavens in the last third of the night. So that is a Mubarak times Allah gets closer to us. We also know a famous Hadith that

01:09:33--> 01:09:59

I'm sure many of you have heard where the Prophet sallallaahu send them has said that Allah has said that the carnival ship run to corruptly there are and that if my servant comes close to me, a hand span, then I come close to them a that are which is an arm's length. And if they come to me, if they come, if they come close to me an arm's length, a lot comes come

01:10:00--> 01:10:44

closer to us, multiple arm's length. And then if if my servant Allah says comes to me walking, then I come to them running. And what this means really is in a spiritual closeness of Allah who's Panwa to Allah? Alright? So all of these meanings are applied when we when we hear the closeness of Allah who's Panama data? Now, Allah mentioned very specifically in this verse, not that he is just close or that he is, or the, the closeness we can say, of the knowledge of Allah, not just being close, but a specific example. happening very right. The jugular vein. Now, what is the significance of mentioning this vein that we have within us? I'd like for you to reflect upon that. So why that

01:10:44--> 01:11:17

particular example has been given once again, reflecting upon the Quran the principles of reflection is to ask the question, why a specific example has been given over another example or why this particular example has been given? Why didn't Allah just say, we are close to them? Right, as has been mentioned in other evidences, but in this verse, we have we are we are even closer we are closer to them than this jugular vein. So what is the significance of that? Do we have any hands up this minute? Yes, Michelle, we have Yvette Yvette, let's hear from you in sha Allah Bismillah Yes, Salonika? That's

01:11:19--> 01:11:44

my daughter's because it's like, the main vein is the like, yeah, it's the main vein. And it's the support that supports us. So to it just said, it just emphasizes how important how close a lot is to us. The jugular vein is what sustained you know, it's the main vein that pumps stuff to you know, our I mean, our heart and everything. So it's a very good

01:11:45--> 01:12:13

excellent, excellent so the the fact that if that vein is cut to Pamela we lose life, right? And that is our main vein. Right, very good. So that's the importance of our we can say the importance of our relationship with Allah who's kind of like to add very good what else Well, I see some good stuff in the comments. But I want to hear from you as well. Lets me know do we have anyone else that can share what they send us had her hand up? Let me just make sure send this do you want to unmute inshallah?

01:12:20--> 01:12:30

If not, anyone else is welcome to take the stage and Sharla with their hand and mashallah The chat is popping. If you're already in the chat, you guys can also raise your hand and share that Islamophobia from Chicago let's go visit

01:12:32--> 01:12:41

I also think the genuine awareness attached to our body, so I was so close to what he's, he's attached to us as well.

01:12:42--> 01:12:49

Now very good. So he's attached to us so he said, Okay, very good. So that that relationship between the closest of Allah to Allah

01:12:50--> 01:12:54

that's that's very good. There's what else what else? I want to hear some other stuff as well.

01:12:56--> 01:12:58

Man, let's hear from you. Bismillah All right ahead.

01:13:02--> 01:13:26

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. ceramah Allah, masha Allah I think the jugular vein because of his value in the human body is like the whole life relies on it like the body flow of the whole blood the system so it's vitality shows that as close as Allah is to you, means that

01:13:27--> 01:13:37

if he's closer to you that the jugular vein is always aware of everything, everything you do or you say or you think of whatever it is,

01:13:39--> 01:14:09

like set up like Zack and Zack and like I liked that it was nice, concise and done 100 letters I can love him Okay, so one of the things that I was thinking about as well and then Zack look at for sharing that I see we have a couple more hands up let me share one thought and then what we'll hear from from others as well. But vulnerability right we are we are vulnerable and Subhanallah I don't know if any of you have had a spatula A weapon put against their neck right?

01:14:10--> 01:14:48

But I have in the past taken a straight edge I don't know if you know what a straight edge is like a razor blade like you know, the old school razor blade, and I've had to like clean up down here. And I do it I don't like people doing it to me but I've had to do it to myself and it feels you feel so Subhanallah vulnerable, that if you just mess up a little bit that Nick like if it goes deep, you can lose your life at that point. Right? So that vulnerability of this is a lot of data is reminding us that this is the control that Allah has over us this how much we are reliant upon Allah who's Pamela Tiana right and that this is how close how close we are to to Allah Santana Very good. Let's

01:14:48--> 01:14:53

let's take one or two more people that have their hands up. Okay, let's do up the line Charlotte from Belgium. I'm gonna go ahead.

01:14:55--> 01:14:56

Yes, okay. Thank you.

01:14:57--> 01:14:59

What I was thinking about is actually how it

01:15:00--> 01:15:42

connects with the previous part we met with we sue the nerves who don't. It's like, there's an internal struggle with yourself with your nerves. So it's like this whole internal occupation. And then Allah is actually saying, Oh, I'm also in the picture in that internal occupation. And he's even more close than all the rest was going on. So it's like his strengthen, strengthening us with the ability to combat the smoother West verse by knowing that he's also present in we even closer than all the Westerners that is going on in our breasts in, in our, in our thinking. So I was thinking about that. Very good, very good. So connecting it to the previous verse. Excellent. One of

01:15:42--> 01:16:07

the principles of reflection is connecting the verses together. What does one verse have to do with the previous verse? And what does this verse have to do with the next verse? So very good, excellent, excellent reflection on this, that we may think that we are alone in our thoughts, right, that is just us and our thoughts and no one else can hear what we're thinking but Allah is then telling us in this verse, that we're closer to them than their jugular vein so very good excellent reflection to say one more person insha Allah

01:16:08--> 01:16:10

already federal ibis, then I take it away

01:16:13--> 01:16:15

from Florida, sound like

01:16:17--> 01:16:18

you said about

01:16:19--> 01:16:33

if like, object or like slurring, they cut from the jugular vein and they lose the life even give life back like in the ICU, they put the central line which gives nutrition to the body too. So what you're close to Allah, you're more having more that kind of life and

01:16:35--> 01:16:39

Okay, very good. So Allah being the source of life as well. Is that what you're saying?

01:16:41--> 01:17:00

Okay, okay, very good. Very good, very good reliance upon the last point out a very good excellent, excellent 100 Allah and I saw some great stuff in the chat as well. So keep keep posting that 100 All right, let's move on to the next verse. So last contact says we're not gonna lay him in heaven in worried we are closer to them than their jugular vein and we said this kin.

01:17:02--> 01:17:16

All scholars agree this is Allah's knowledge, Allah is close to us and his knowledge, but whether this is referring to the angels that are about to come up in this verse, there's some differences of opinion on that. Allah then says, if you get the knuckle Metallica, Yanni and Yemeni were initially malafide.

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

As is, you know, the word is, can be has significance, right? So, Allah says we're closer to them than their jugular vein. And then Allah says is which can mean as or when or as it is, right. So, as the two receivers in the telecom utilitarian, as the two receivers receive, I didn't even mean what she meant, they are receiving right on

01:17:48--> 01:18:11

to the right and to the left, guide, they are sitting right and putting all that together. Subhanallah it is that Allah is telling us as there are two receivers that are two angels and angels are not mentioned specifically angels hasn't been mentioned. But the fact that they are receiving are they receiving they're receiving information, we'll talk about that. They are their receivers, angels that are receiving

01:18:12--> 01:18:35

and they are sitting there sitting to the right and to the left, Allah who has penalty to Allah, a point to reflect upon here. Allah said that I didn't mean he or she meant that they are to the right and to the left. Allah didn't say eylea mean or Allah shemale. They're not on the right. And on the left, why is that the case? Why didn't Allah say they are?

01:18:36--> 01:18:48

Oftentimes I've heard when people translate this verse and they explain this verse, they say, there are two angels. There's one sitting on your right one sitting on your left, it's not on, it's two, to the right and to the left. Now, what is the difference between the two?

01:18:50--> 01:19:00

And I have you think, and wrack your brains right now? Gela? What is the difference between on the right and on the left versus to the right to the left? And I go ahead.

01:19:04--> 01:19:10

Is it because they're, so you will say on my right, when someone's just standing there, you know,

01:19:11--> 01:19:45

or to the, to the right, if someone is just standing there rather than on it would be like on top of your shoulder? You know what I mean? But they're not sitting on top of your shoulder. They're there by your side. So they're by your sides? Because then what are you good, very good. So common misconception people have that there's an angel sitting on your shoulder is an angel on the right, and there's an angel sitting on your luck. And that is not the case that nothing explicitly in the Quran and Sunnah says the angel just sits down on her shoulder. That's not how it is. They are to our right and to our left, right in the direction of someone's head direction of our right in the

01:19:45--> 01:19:59

direction of our left. They are present there. Now, this also helps us with the question of someone says, Yeah, Allah is telling us that there are angels, you know, on my right and on my left, but I've never felt them. I've never heard them I've never seen

01:20:00--> 01:20:06

them, how do we respond to that? Right? So let's let's, let's hear from some people, some of the people that have their hands up in sha Allah.

01:20:07--> 01:20:10

Okay, so those who don't want to respond to that you guys can lower your hands.

01:20:12--> 01:20:14

I'm here, let's see for your child, it's my Go ahead.

01:20:18--> 01:20:29

So I want to I set out on a long way. So is the same question as, what's the difference between on and to? Or you can start with that, and then we'll move we'll move to the part to that question. Go ahead.

01:20:31--> 01:20:32

Well,

01:20:33--> 01:20:48

from what I heard about the angels are pretty big. So I don't know, it would kind of be like limiting the greatness if like, few would say they're on your shoulder and or, and if it's set aside, I feel like there could be multiple more than one. But if you're just putting on shoulder just like there's you can only be two, you know?

01:20:49--> 01:21:12

So that's okay. Okay, good. So interesting, interesting question, interesting observations. And while we do know that it's one in one, as far as we know, and a lot knows, beyond that, I don't know a lot knows. But, you know, the what the this verse and other evidences seem to indicate that is one in one but a lot. If there's any additional, you know, angels then that I like, I don't know.

01:21:13--> 01:21:24

But the idea and it's very interesting to found that you said, the the largeness or the size of the angels. And we know angels vary in size. And we know that angels that are very, very large.

01:21:25--> 01:22:03

We know that amongst a description person gave them a new breed and the angel Jibreel seems to be the largest and grandest Angel, right? But it's an indication so in one nurse, and send them said, I looked up and when the CENTUM saw the angel Jibreel, in His original form, he covered the horizon, right, he covered the horizon. That's how large that angel is. But we know the angels are very large. And so that brings us to the point, someone says, you know, I've never felt an angel, I've never heard an angel. What is the issue there? The answer that is very simple. This is from anyone of A, this is from the knowledge, or what happens in the unseen, right? This, we don't have access

01:22:03--> 01:22:36

to that world, we don't have access to the world, the angels, the jinn as well, I don't want to get into the gym right now, because it's gonna shoot off to another topic. But the angels we don't have access, we cannot see them in their original form. This is an ability that Allah has given to the Prophets, but other than the prophets, we don't have the ability to see the angels in their original form. Hence, Allah tells us, right Hence, if we were to be able to see the angels, or hear the angels, or feel the angels, or whatever it may be, there'd be no need for Allah has kind of data to give us this information. But this is Allah in the Quran, revealing to us something that is

01:22:37--> 01:23:01

something that we need to know or something that would help us in our lives, right. And so and so. So that is one of the reasons that this verse has been revealed to inform, inform us of something that we wouldn't know. Otherwise, something that happens in the, in the world of the unseen, something that we do not have access to. Allah is very interesting that

01:23:03--> 01:23:43

Allah did mention sitting right at a telecoil within a piano and alien, an alien. Meanwhile, he merely carried that they are sitting. But once again, the question is, are they sitting on our shoulders? Right? And scholars have said, No, they're not necessarily sitting on their shoulders, but they are sitting in the sense that they are ready, right? They're in a position to write down everything that we say right? Everything that is happening, everything that we say this is being written down by the angels, and then so moving right on to the next verse, Allah says my yell if you don't mean our Lin, in LA, they hear a table it that a single word is not spoken. Except that there

01:23:43--> 01:24:26

is a an update, which is a you know, I mentioned maraca earlier, which is to observe, to be visited to observe vigilantly, right? That is doing one that are doing maraca they're observing, and they are it they are right, they are ready to they're in a position, ready to write it down. Right? So if you can imagine Subhan, Allah and Angel, and we don't have knowledge of this, but this is the sense that we get from these verses is that they're in a position to immediately write down that what we what we say and what happens, right. Some of our scholars say that they write down everything. They write down the good, they write down the bad, they write down the neutral, they write down mundane

01:24:26--> 01:25:00

things, it doesn't matter anything, they write it down. Some of our scholars have said no, they only write down the good deeds and the bad deeds. And it seemed that Allah has had to and knows best that the stronger opinion is that they write down everything because it's versus million fee the min a will in that they there's not a single meaningful what that means is anything from speech, anything, any any type of speech, except that is being written down, right. That's what that means. And that means that the good and the bad however, we're only held accountable for the good. And we're sorry, we're only

01:25:00--> 01:25:47

rewarded for the good and held accountable for the bad, that is what has most prominent now, this is also Subhanallah that when they write it down, it can be erased and it can be or it can be maintained right. So this is one level of writing down of our deeds and our actions and so on and so forth. As Allah Subhana Allah says, Allah Who Maya Shep ye what used to be two, we're in the we're in the Omar Kitab that Allah has kind of a tiara, yum, Allahu Masha Allah will remain erase or remove anything that he likes, well used to be too. And he also maintains what basically whatever he wants, we're in the monkey tab and he has the mother of the book, The Omen kitab. I mean, this is

01:25:47--> 01:26:33

some a little bit more advanced theology, but what this is referring to is the low fold, basically, the the Preserved Tablet or the preserved slate, which is written which is written before our creation, that is the eventual decree of Allah some data that is what happens, that is what will happen, right? One level of writing down is the what the angels are writing down. So the angels may write something down. We do a bad deed. But let's say we seek forgiveness from Allah Subhana Allah, that bad deed can be removed, in the no fool, if we die upon that what is written is, the person died without that sin, alright, because we we died upon a state where we had made made doba that was

01:26:33--> 01:27:15

already written by Allah subhanaw taala. But one level of this and that of Allah is writing of the decree of Allah happens by these angels that are by our sides, right, that they write something down, but it's not permanent in the sense that if it can be removed, or as Allah says that while you're a bit lucky and maintain it, as as well also, you know, in the Hessonite, you've heard me say, at our good deeds, they remove bad deeds, right. So, these deeds can change in terms of what is written and that should Subhanallah actually give us hope, that in if we do a bad deed, right, then it is written down. So we know that okay, there's a level of permanence there, but we want to remove

01:27:15--> 01:27:52

that permanence. So our Toba our is the thought our repentance should be immediate as well, because without a doubt, it has been written down, right. And we want to we want to be as quick as possible to remove what what has been written down by these angels. And on the other side, the flip side of that, when we do something which is good, we want that Allah, your spirit, we want that Allah maintains it, how do we make sure that Allah maintains it is that we stay upon that good deed, right? That we don't do things that will take us away from that good deed that we have done, right? And we want to maintain, we want to, we want to have to stick on we want to be in a state of

01:27:52--> 01:28:25

uprightness, we want to maintain the goodness that we are doing. So these verses, when we recite these verses, that is some of what we should be thinking about, right? That what is the point of these angels writing things down? And a person can say, well, you know, if, if what the angels have written down can be changed, and what is the point of it, this is the point of it. The point of it is that if it's bad, that have done that, we want to make sure it's changed as soon as possible, as soon as we can, because we don't know how long our life is, if it is good, you want to we want to make sure that it is maintained until the Day of Judgment, right. So that is what some of the

01:28:25--> 01:29:10

benefit of of this idea of the fact that or the idea that what is written is one level of what has been written down from our deeds out the other main point of reflection here Subhan, Allah is when Allah Subhana Allah tells us that there's not a single statement, there's nothing that we say, my young woman how Illa de Hiraki when it except that it is being written down, you know, it's being recorded for us, that being aware of what we say right and the fact that it is immediately written noun meaning we are accountable for what we are saying what we are doing, and we find in the Sunnah of premises and then this be emphasized over and over and over and over and over again, right? The

01:29:10--> 01:29:54

the, the input, the impact of our words, being careful about what we say, one famous Hadith, which I wanted to share with you today. Subhan Allah is anything Jindo mentioned in Sahih Muslim, in which the prophets lie Selim told us of a person who says, well, law had not yet been futile, Allahu li fallen apart person, the person who says, I swear by Allah, Allah will never forgive this person. Allah, the President is telling us of an example here of an instance of a case that happens many times in our lives as well. When we pass judgment on people, we think someone is so evil or so bad or, or sometimes we just don't like the person, right? That we say that Allah will never forgive

01:29:54--> 01:29:59

this person. What is the outcome? Now that's a statement that we have made, and we may not think of the implications of it.

01:30:00--> 01:30:10

But the person who tells us of the implication of that statement, the versus Adam said, in Allah to Allah con Allah who's penalized to Allah will say to this person

01:30:11--> 01:30:52

who, who, who has given you authority to say about me that I would not forgive so and so, right, who has given you this authority to urge me or to put me in a position that I will not forgive so and so, but in the academy refer to Lebanon, and because of the statement that you have made about them, I have, I will forgive this person, well, but to my luck, and I have removed or I have erased your deeds, and I have basically, may Allah protect us I have taken the goodness that you have done has been removed because of this evil deed that you're doing. Right now Allah has vowed to protect us. But this is the severity Subhanallah of what we say that speaking about other people general policy,

01:30:52--> 01:30:53

I believe,

01:30:54--> 01:31:03

is that we should always err on the side of caution, especially when speaking about obviously when speaking, but specifically when speaking about other people,

01:31:04--> 01:31:24

when when making judgments or making statements about other people saying that so and so they're a bad person, or they're a good person, and so on so forth. As a parent, and Pamela, one of the things that I have tried to apply in my life with my kids as well is, there's a thing that I don't know how many parents we have in the house. If you're a parent, drop it in the chat, I'd like to see how many parents we have just put a P for parents.

01:31:26--> 01:31:28

So cat parent doesn't count.

01:31:29--> 01:31:42

parents haven't been so parents, right? One of the things that's very common with parents that when they don't like something their child is doing, they say, You're being a bad boy, or or sorry, no, not that you're being you're a bad boy, or you're a bad girl, right?

01:31:44--> 01:32:00

You know, this is this is a bad boy, this is a bad girl. So very common parents say that. I've always told you know, what I've talked about this issue before is that we should not make it How come upon our children in that way. We should not say to them, you're a bad boy, or you're a bad girl. We can say to them, what is better to say what is

01:32:01--> 01:32:14

more fruitful? What is more beneficial to say is? This is bad behavior, right? This is not good. So it's saying that the behavior itself is bad, right? Even some people say,

01:32:15--> 01:32:47

only bad boys do this, only good girls do that. I'm hesitant to even make that statement. Because now you've categorized them, and you've told them what OS you're in the category of bad children. Now what can happen is, you know, we're talking about internal dialogue, what we say to ourselves, a person may Subhanallah put themselves in a position that they have defined themselves. And they've and they are now begin to think of themselves. And I've seen this happen to kids, who just they're, they're told you're bad, you're bad, you're bad, you're bad, you're bad. They begin to think I'm bad, I'm bad, I'm bad, I'm bad. And then they're like, Look, I'm just a bad kid. You know, I'm just

01:32:47--> 01:32:59

not a good kid. And a lot of times this happens even other than good and bad. We say to kids, you may not realize we say to kids, you're so smart, right? I'm not even in the favor of telling kids. They're smart. I'll tell you why.

01:33:01--> 01:33:24

As someone and I can say this panel, I can say this, and there's a little bit personal for me to share, but I'll share it because we're, you know, chronic viral Utena, chronic lies, you know, share some personal stuff. But I was told as a kid, you're a smart kid, right? You're smart, you're smart, smart? Well, one of the things that happens with smart kids is they begin to basically to put it simply, they become overconfident, right, they begin to

01:33:26--> 01:33:44

put less and less effort because they begin to believe that they are smart, right? They begin, they begin to believe that they can get away with putting in less effort. And that's why they have found even like some of the studies that have been done in studies are not always conclusive, and so on and so forth. But some of the studies that I've done, show that people with the highest IQ,

01:33:45--> 01:34:04

many of them tend to be under achievers, right, that people with high IQs they don't tend to accomplish the most in life. And if you think about that, like why, why is that the case? Well, if someone is smart, they have a high high IQ, and so on so forth. They are told that they're smart, and then they try they they put that into

01:34:06--> 01:34:44

they they try it, right. So in exams coming up, I'm smart. I don't have to study that much. They put in minimal effort. And with their minimal effort, you know what, they get a B or a C, right, they pass. And now what they begin to learn is that you know what I can get I can get through life with putting in minimal effort, because I'm smart. Right? And that's why some of these kids have had a lot that have high IQs that are smart kids. They tend to be underachievers because they don't reach their full potential because they get used to just trying the minimal amount and getting by in life. Right. And that's why I don't think we should be telling kids like you're so smart. We should tell

01:34:44--> 01:34:59

kids, yes, Masha, Allah, I'm very proud of you. You're very hard working, you put a lot of work into it, so on and so forth. I think we should reward that we should reward hard work, rather than rewarding something that is just, you know, just something that is given to them.

01:35:00--> 01:35:02

Right. That's like telling someone's mad,

01:35:03--> 01:35:35

like, oh, wow, you're so rich, like, okay, great, right? You're born into a rich family that you haven't really accomplished much, right? And that's why many times, kids have rich parents. Don't try very hard either. Because it's something that's just given to them, right? Wealth is given to them. And they just coast by or whatever they may not, you know, not always the case. And there's a bit of a generalization here. But it's the same idea, right? That kids that are told you're smart, you're smart, you're smart, begin to believe that I'm smart, I can, I don't have to do a lot. And so once again,

01:35:36--> 01:36:13

rewarding the effort that kids put in so even even my kids, I, I would I would I, I won't say to them, you're smart. Sometimes I'll say, Oh, that's very smart that you thought about that. That's good. Because I would encourage them to think in that way, right? Critical thinking to encourage critical thinking hunting that good. But in general, I'd want to try to do is reward the effort that is put in like, I'm very proud of you that you spend an hour you know, learning your Quran or you spent an hour learning new words or whatever it may be. Because once again, categorizing people and that's I'm sorry to go off on this tangent here. But that is one of the things we may not realize

01:36:13--> 01:36:30

Subhanallah the impact of our words, but the [???]ty of Allah who's kind of data is constantly telling us to be aware of what we say, right? Because our words have impact with on ourselves, as we covered in the previous verse, I believe is verse number 16. Right? That

01:36:32--> 01:37:12

we're not alone we're meant to us we will be enough so that when Allah knows what we whisper to our own selves and the impact of that, but also on on other people as well our words have have impact. And I'll end in sha Allah to Allah with one Hadith, which is a very very scary deeds to kind of Allah and Western prophets. I send them he said in them that I've done it the kingdom will Kadima min Sati La La your Karina have abandoned that a servant a person may say a Kadima kalima can be a single word or can even be a statement. So, this person, a person says a single statement or a single word, Min subpoena from the anger of Allah now up to her balance. Basically, what that means

01:37:12--> 01:37:50

is not paying attention to it, not giving it any importance. Like it didn't even it didn't even register for them that this is something which is serious, or a big deal. Like it was it was just a little like, whatever. And then the person said, yeah, how we be here, fija Hannah, this person will sink down into the Hellfire because of that statement that didn't pay much attention to right. And especially now with social media and how much we tend to say, and we comment and so on and so forth. And Hamdulillah I don't want to you know, make anyone feel bad the comments that we received here in the chat, I've yet to see bad stuff being said, I'm the not at least the chat that I have access to

01:37:50--> 01:38:24

here, good stuff. But if you look at other social media, that we have a very positive environment that we create here on Ramadan. 360 800 It's a wonderful environment. But you look at other types of social media, subhanAllah, Facebook and Twitter and whatever else, you see the amount of toxicity and negativity, how much people Subhanallah make fun of one another or say hurtful things, thinking it's not a big deal. But with Allah who has analyzed to add it could be a very, very big deal. So part of reflecting upon this verse is to say to ourselves, you know what, I need to be careful about what I say.

01:38:25--> 01:39:03

Okay, there's a lot more to be said Subhanallah but we are out of time. So I'm going to go ahead and end here inshallah Tada. We asked, Allah has finally to Allah to allow us to say that which is good, or to remain silent, Allah whom I mean her that will love her to Allah, Allah subhana, Allah Hama will be handed a shadow in I learned a stockbroker, to Lake mineral to Dias Desikan Lakeisha here the reason why I'm Hamdulillah this environment I keep I keep telling you and like in among your family in the in the staff group like Subhanallah, like I think are unreflecting made 360 Because we have so many opportunities to benefit from our speakers, and we have opportunities to listen and to

01:39:03--> 01:39:32

learn and to connect in the chat. But we don't get a chance to personalize it, you know, and to connect it to our daily lives. I feel like I'm prepared for parenthood now after taking 20 Quranic vibes and chaotic reflect so high along with all the examples and all the learning that you've done and you've shared and you've opened up and yeah, it hadn't been a lot this this community is a family and it's such a blessing to have spent the month with you as we're as we're kind of winding down it's it's 100 Allah that we're here but inshallah we can continue this is throughout the among our programming and throughout all the other experiences that we have. And Alexa from your shift

01:39:32--> 01:39:44

01:40:04--> 01:40:38

my what all I can insinuate is that you are in Mecca, and you're using a hotel room. So I'm assuming you're in Mecca, and you're there you're spending it on Milan there. And if that's the case, because I haven't asked anyone I haven't asked you, I don't know if people listening I don't know what's going on. But that's what I'm insinuating. If that's the case, most current data reward you from taking out of your time. That can you could spend in the worst in the worst of the lowest price out of being in a bus in a place like Mecca and to connect with your brothers and sisters and facilitate this. That's awesome.
