you ready? In a similar setting?
When we talking about marriage
we usually like to talk about it from a different angle
which is encouraging young people to get married.
And I remember the statement of my beloved brother, Allah.
When he said by the, by the end of this session all of you will be will be married. I don't know but after my session, you know, all of us have had some divorce and whatever.
Now, I'm not gonna sugarcoat
I'm gonna give it to you as it is.
with how does if you say hello, how are you a Muslim Watanabe
with unkempt hair
came to the city of Medina on a cam
and then when he reached the mercy of the Navy summer Maharani, he was telling them
he got off his camera.
And he released the camera.
And he walked to the minister and he stood at the door of the mystery
for Karina Hush.
Where's this man?
He's talking about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
the Sahaba out of respect.
They look towards the messenger over loss on the lawn, he will send them
and the messenger over law was reclining.
And he said,
I'm right here. I respond.
And then a man came
walking over the shoulder stepping over the shoulder of the Sahaba.
And he started from the messenger over law. And he said to him,
Are you the one that I'm looking for? He said yes.
for in the silo. I'm asking a question.
What should they do? But I'll be very stern, very harsh.
When I'm asking question when I'm addressing you, I will not speak softly to you.
So did not find anything in your heart towards me.
So the messenger over life, smile. And he said proceed. Go ahead.
So he asked questions.
The reason that I quote this hadith is
I am not gonna shoot a call today.
And I'm gonna be harsh. I'm gonna be hard. I'm gonna be realistic about marriage. So he want to cry? Or do you want to complain? Or if you're too sensitive, Lee, if you're a man, and you can handle it, and be seated and keep smiling,
keep taking it.
the title of this lecture is, are you ready? Am I right?
You're not ready, I'm telling you that you are not ready. For those of you who are single, you're not ready.
Most of you are not ready.
being ready, what does it mean?
It See you guys,
all of you. Number one.
You see this marriage thing as a fairy tale
happily ever after, in one of those movies, you know, or disney world which shows that all he will fall in love with her and then she will fall in love with him and the little problem happens and then they will separate from one another and then she will cry and he saw writing a poll and bottom of the list and then all this and then later on he comes and they meet once again and they you know live ever, ever happily ever after. This is not married.
This is not how marriage is going to be. I am telling you.
I have been married over 17 years. And whatever Hollywood tells you is a lie. So take them
Are you ready?
See how do you know whether you're ready or not?
You will know if you're responsible
and you are responsible of yourself, then I will say, perhaps you can take the responsibility of someone else. Because marriage means you are self sufficient first. And then you go out of your way, and you take a responsibility of someone else. And you will be able to handle the responsibility of yourself and the responsibility of someone else. If you only take want to take one wife, if you want to take four wives alone, what do you majority Sevilla, don't call me when you're drowning.
the Sahaba of the Messenger of Allah, listening to overlocking and the people who are running the messenger overlong they were all young
as debatable now,
when he accepted when he was next to the minister in your overlock, he was 15 years old.
When his best friend accepted Islam don't have been obey the law. He was 16 years old.
When sad when it was sad, when everyone comes when he came and he said, I am supporting your mission, your overlock he was 17 years old.

to the hospital outcome outcome because he knew this young man is responsible. And guess how old was our company?
16 years old.
When the messenger overlaps, and I'm bringing the whole oma to you to your house, and no one should know about it, and no one should speak a bomb. And everything that we say stays in this house. And your house is the shelter that will protect the oma you know, who did he trust? 16 years old kid. And
