Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
lesson number 189 Soto for Khan is number 51 260 210 [???] now and if we will love our Snuffy Conley, Korea in May the raw, we could have sent into every city, a warner,
if Allah subhanaw taala wanted, he could have sent in every nation in every people in every city in every country, a prophet, a warner, a person to warn the inhabitants of that term.
But isn't it so that we have learned that we're in Korea tiene Illa Hola, fi Hana de that there is no Korea except that Allah has sent a warning to it.
So what does this mean? What this means is that instead of sending Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, as a messenger for all mankind, for all nations, for every person who wants to come after him until the day of judgment,
Allah subhanaw taala sent him he could have sent to every town to every city to every country, a profit for them.
But instead, what did he do? He sent only one messenger, you understand?
He could have sent to every city, every nation, a profit. However, he sent Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam as a final and last messenger for who, for all people, as we learned at the beginning of the sutra, that about Okay, Larry Nasser, Al Furqan, or Allah or de, Leah coonan de la la mina de la.
So that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is a warrior for who Allah mean. But Allah could have sent a messenger to every city as well, but he did not. Why? For many reasons. First of all, if you think about it, after the time of the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam, the entire world has as though become a global village, isn't it? So?
anything that happens in one part of the world is immediately known at another part of the world,
Similarly, we see that the people have come closer together in the sense that they have a better understanding of one another.
The world has become like a global village. Earlier, what was the case that if a people lived in a particular part of the world, they had no idea about other people who lived in another part of the world,
they were completely separated. They had nothing to do with one another. But at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and even afterwards, especially the people they have come closer together and as a result, the message that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam brought, it was delivered to all people.
We learned into our life I 158. That Kalia you had ness in near rasulillah in a con Jimmy, that say all mankind or people I'm a messenger of a lot to you, altogether, meaning I'm a messenger sent to all of you.
We also learned in sort of the shooter I number seven, that worker then eco hanaa illegal and Albion leeton their own Malcorra woman Hala
that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he has been given the Quran Why? So that he warns the people of Malcorra what is omokoroa maka, but not just macabre woman handler and whoever that lives around it.
We also learn from a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said burries to marry well, so the I have been sent to the red and the black meaning to all types of people, all races, all backgrounds, all countries until the day of judgment.
And because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was sent as a messenger to all mankind, his mission was greater.
And the greater the mission, the greater the task, the greater the reward.
And as a result, the prophets of Allah Slim's rank, his position is also greater compared to the other profits.
And over here, the profits are a lot of setup is being reassured
that you have been given a huge responsibility. You have been given a huge responsibility that you're not just to convey to the people of Makkah, but to the people of the entire world. And I mean, all the people you're supposed to convey,
but at the same time, he's been reassured that yes, this is a huge responsibility that has been laid upon your shoulders. However, this is by the will of Allah and Allah will help you accomplish this. But what do you have to do in order to accomplish this mission fell out today real carefully in so do not obey
disbelievers. What does it mean by this do not obey the disbelievers.
You see the message that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam had brought the disbelievers they did not like it. It was against their desires. Like for example, the belief in oneness of Allah soprano, not committing Zina, not committing cuttle. Right, not lying to one another fulfilling promises.
There were people there are people even today who do not like this, who do not like the message that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has brought.
Now at that time, and even today, what do people want that their religion should be altered? Isn't it the religion should be changed, it should suit their desires, it should suit their lifestyle, that they do not have to change rather their religion should change.
But the one who has been given the responsibility to convey the message to the people, what must he remember?
That he is to remain obedient to Allah, not to the disbelievers. Because if he obeys the disbelievers, and what will become of the religion, it will not remain the same. It will like to remain what Allah subhanaw taala wants it to be rather it will be altered.
This is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is clearly told over here falletto theory caffeine, do not obey them. In what regard? In what matter. In the matter of religion, you are to remain firm on your principles.
In total insanity is 23 to 24 we learned the same message that while our two there are men whom semen oka for that do not obey from among the people, the center, or the ungrateful, the extremely disbelieving, do not obey them.
Similarly, until through calfire 28, we have learned earlier that will lead to terramin offender gulbahar and Zykina whatever however, who what can
that do not obey the person whose heart We have made heedless of our remembrance. He does not remember Allah, what does he do?
He follows his desires and as a result, his matter is of extreme neglect. Therefore, don't obey such people.
What does this teach us? What lesson does this teach us? Think about it related to yourself, what do we learn from this?
That no matter what pressures a person faces, he has to remain firm on the religion, he cannot change it, he cannot alter it. He cannot compromise the religion just to satisfy some people. Because if you begin to satisfy people, they will never be happy with you.
So the person who has been given the light of a man, the person who has been given the understanding of the deen it is incumbent on him. It is mandatory on him that he must obey Allah alone, not the people of the world.
Fernando del Katharina do not obey the disbelievers.
Watch your head home. And instead what should you do? strive against them? Be he through this? through what? Through the honor has been given to you strive against them with the Quran? But how should you strive against them? Jihad and Kabira a great striving. What does it mean? don't obey them at all. You have been given the responsibility to convey this Koran, this message to the entire world than aalameen.
And if you begin to obey the disbelievers, then you will not be able to accomplish your mission.
And in order to accomplish your mission, what do you have to do? Jay hit home big head and Kabira strive against the disbelievers with the whole on how do you have an Kabila a great striving?
Now what does it mean by J head home? b What does Jihad mean?
As you know, jihad is from through lettris. Jima, then from the word Jude and what does that mean? was
a person's ability Baka a person strength, meaning whatever a person can afford to do, whatever ability a person has.
And jihad is also from the word Jihad and jihad is vishakha effort.
So when you combine the two words together Jihad and jihad, what does it mean?
that a person puts in his maximum effort on a large scale using all of his capabilities, all of his resources in a struggle to achieve his goal?
What does the person do? He puts
In his maximum effort, all that he can afford, all that he can do, he puts in his best his maximum effort. And on a large scale using every bit of energy that he has every bit of strength and resources that he has, why does he expend them in order to achieve a particular goal?
And in the literal sense, this goal could be of the dunya. It could also be of the deen.
Like, for example, a person who wants to become a millionaire. Can you just sit at home and dream about it? Can he? No, he has to work very, very hard. He has to put in a lot of effort. People who are very, very serious about making money, you see them how they work, what good work ethics they have, and how much they struggle. They work overtime, they put in so much effort researching, choosing the best options for themselves, and not taking it lightly at all.
So do you have in its literal sense, could be an endeavor to achieve a world legal or even a religious school.
And when you're struggling in this way, when you want to achieve a particular goal, remember that whenever you want to achieve a particular goal, you face many hurdles,
Sometimes you face hurdles from within your own laziness, you want to sleep, you want to take it easy, you don't want to go to work. You don't want to do all that research, you just want to get over it, isn't it. So sometimes, the hurdles could be from outside even other people criticizing you, other people opposing you, or other people doing the same thing as you have a lot of competition, isn't it. So just imagine a person who wants to have a very successful business. He has struggles from within obstacles from within, and obstacles from without as well from outside as well.
Therefore jihad is not just about striving to achieve your goal. But jihad is also to ward off any hurdle. any enemy that comes in your way
it is to struggle to ward off to remove any enemy, any hurdle, any obstacle that comes in your way, you put your best to ward it off, so that it does not remain a hurdle for you. This is the literal meaning of the word jihad.
Now, definitely, in Islamic terms, what does you have me? jihad is to struggle to put in one's maximum effort. Why?
What's the goal? What's the purpose? get done, to attain the pleasure of Allah to attain higher ranks in the hereafter.
But what will a person do? What is he struggling to do them? In the tangible sense? Like realistically what is the person doing?
He wants to achieve gender. He's putting in his maximum effort, but what is he putting his effort in?
To do that which pleases Allah subhanaw taala? What else?
Stay away from sin, which is why do you have this against unops? Right?
Do not follow the desires, a type of jihad is against enough. What else
that does spread the word of Allah to raise the caliber of Allah to exalt the caliber of Allah to spread it everywhere. Because remember, the context. Look at the context in the previous hour has mentioned that it is the responsibility of the profit side of autism to convey the message to
all the people at the beginning, what did we learn the coordinator al Ameen and Avira. Now, isn't that a huge mission? Isn't it? It's a huge mission.
And in order to accomplish that, you're going to face many, many hurdles, many, many obstacles, and you have to put in your maximum effort. So do you have technically and Islamic terms? It is to strive to serve the deen to strive to spread the deen to strive to defend the deen
to get the Quran in everyone's heart in everyone's hand. This is what you had this in Islamic terms.
And remember, that many times we understand you have to be just battle, going to war going to battle. But if you look at it, the Arabic language is rich with many many words that can be used for battle because the Arabs in love that you have help you have little you have XAF you have what you have so many many words that can be used for veteran but the word that constantly comes in the Quran is which one
Jihad? And remember this surah which Allah is it.
Maki surah in Makkah, which battles are
Prophet sallallahu Sallam fight against the machine, not even a single battle.
And what is being said over here jahad, whom the hegi had in Kabira? What does he refer to? He refers to the Quran
How can you go to battle with the Quran? You cannot go to battle with the Quran.
So this jihad, this struggle, this endeavor is what do spread the Quran to convey the Quran.
And before conveying the Quran, the struggle is to live by the Quran, adhere to the Quran.
Because in Makkah, what was the main struggle to live by the Quran? Isn't it that whatever commands or loss of power it was giving, even if it was believing in the oneness of a lion eating of the halal food and not committing Zina. It was a huge thing, a huge challenge. So living by the Quran adhering to the Quran, in that context, was a jihad in itself.
And not just living by the Quran but spreading it as well conveying it to others as well was also a huge struggle It was also a jihad in itself.
So Jared Hoon, be here Jihad and
strive against the enemy, how, with the Quran, live by it, no matter what the opposition is conveyed, no matter what the hurdles are.
So Jared, home big hadn't Kabira
and notice what is being said over here, that don't just struggle, what kind of struggle is required to live by the Quran and to spread the Quran, Jihad and Kabira
Jihad and Kabira an ordinary struggle is not required to live by the Quran, huge struggle,
The greatest challenge that a person faces when it comes to living by the Quran is his own ups. As we have been realizing this, again and again, that once you convince yourself, once you overcome yourself, then you can do whatever you want to do.
It is difficult to make other people understand. But once you've convinced yourself, then you can convince anybody, isn't it to think about it, anything about what you are 100% convinced? When you're convinced, you can make any person do that, isn't it so
you love a particular food, and you want to eat that you will convince your husband, let's go and eat that now, isn't it, if you want it bad, you will be able to convince it.
So the first thing is to overcome yourself that's necessary in order to live by the Quran. And it's not an ordinary struggle. It's not easy to overcome yourself. What is required Jihad and Kabira
and it's not just yourself, but in particular, what is being mentioned over here. jahad Home, home refers to the enemy, those who stop you those who hinder you those who strive against you. So against them as well what do you need to do? Jihad and kaviraj?
Now COVID, What does COVID mean?
What is COVID mean?
That which is vague that which is great. And in particular, that which is great compared to the other? How, in some tangible quality in some tangible way.
Like, for example, that which is bigger than the other in its age, it's older, or for example, in its size, and its length in its width in its weight.
So, something could be big, in many, many ways.
Now, when a las panatela says over here gehad whom big hadn't Kabira what is Jihad and Kabira?
Do you have them Kabira is such a struggle, which is great in its size. What does it mean by that?
That you're not just struggling to convey the Quran only to your family, only to your neighbors only to the people of your town only to the people who speak your language, but your goal, your mission, your vision should be to convey the Quran to everybody. This is Jihad and Kabila.
You have a huge target. You're struggling and your jihad is great in its size. So it should encompass the entire globe.
Secondly, jihadist capital also include that the effort that you're putting in
the effort that you're putting in, it should be the best that you can afford the best that you can do. You know
Sometimes you're doing something and you don't really put in that much effort, you don't really put your mind to it much. Why? It doesn't require much effort.
Like, for example, when you're sending a text message, do you put in as much effort as writing an article or writing some assignment or essay for school? No, you don't put in as much effort. You don't have to use your brain as much,
Why it doesn't require that much effort.
But the Quran in order to convey the Quran, you have to put in a lot of effort. Why?
Because the more effort you put in, the more effective your work is going to be,
The more effort you put in, the more effective your work is going to be, the better your work is going to be, the more it's going to achieve better effects it's going to have
so Jaya whom he had in Kabbalah and Kabbalah also indicates that all the time uninterruptedly that it shouldn't be something that you do, during only certain hours of the day, are only some parts of your life. No, this is a long life missioner jahad, whom big hadn't Kabira and if you think about it, struggling against the enemy with the Quran, is a great struggle.
Going to battle is still easy. But dealing with the sofa, making them understand making them accept is extremely challenge.
If you get angry with someone, you start beating them up, you can beat them, you can finish them, okay done. But when you are discussing something with them, and you want them to understand, and you want them to accept and believe how much effort you have to put in,
It's Jihad and kaviraj. It's a great effort, a great struggle, this is what is required, you cannot take it lightly. You haven't Kabira is required.
Now, if you look at it so far, in this order, we have been learning that there are many, many opposite things right at the beginning we learned about
isn't it, which is a criterion, the distinguishment between good and bad,
which shows to us that there are two different things that exist.
In certain news, we learned about the night and the day you can leave Allahu Laila when the half Allah alternates the night and the day,
constantly we have been seeing this contrast between light and darkness isn't it's night and day, good and evil.
And there is a conflict between the two. Each is trying to overcome the other.
The night tries to overcome the day eventually it does the day overcomes the night eventually does, isn't it? constantly there is this conflict, and constantly, one is overcoming the other. What does it show to us that if you convey this message to others, if you convey the Quran to others, only then you will be able to do something. And if you do not convey the Quran to others and what's going to happen, you will be overcome.
You will be overcome.
Because many times we think that you know we're Muslim, we believe in the Quran, we read the Quran, we follow the Quran, but that's about it. That should not be it. The Quran is not just sent to that you can live by No, it's your responsibility that you also have to convey it.
Because if you don't convey it, you will be overcome by something else. If not you your future generations, your children, your family, your neighbors, your relatives, and this is something so true.
If you believe in the Quran, with conviction, you follow it, if you don't transfer the same conviction into the heart of your children, will they have doubts? Or will they have conviction? They will have doubts, isn't it so?
Why is it so that we see the older generations so firm on the religion but the younger generations not as firm? Why?
Because we have failed to realize our duty to pass the Quran on to others. We have failed to realize that it's our obligation to convey the Quran to others.
And when we don't commit the code onto others, then what happens we will be overcome. We will be affected by the message of other people.
This is why right at the beginning what has been said funair tutorial carefully, do not obey the disbelievers.
And in order to do that, you have to know what Allah is telling you. And you have to tell your children and your family and the people who live around you what Allah subhanaw taala has done
Firstly, we have to realize that it is our responsibility to convey the Quran to others.
We cannot just selfishly understand and read and implementable on ourselves. No, we cannot fully do that unless and until we can make a claim.
Now, you will read many, many more cases. And earlier also you read many murky sources, what did we learn? What was the main theme? There were? So many prophets are mentioned, what did they do? They conveyed the message of a lot of the people, did they just live by it in their personal lives? Did they not just that they also conveyed it to others? and constantly in the Quran, we see this, how to convey with what ways in what methods? Why is this mentioned? A big portion of the Quran is about Dawa. Why? Because of what iron has been given to us so that we can be to people
because if the people do not know that they will suffer the great consequences in the hereafter.
So we must realize that it's our obligation to convey
we learned so little and am I number 19
au Shea in UK baru Shahada, Colin, shahidan benei webinar calm, we're all here he lay your head and an Li own the Lacombe woman Bella
that this Quran has been revealed to me. Why? So that I warn you through the Quran, and also whom ever it reaches. It was the responsibility of the prophets that allowed them to convey the Quran to the people.
Now, he was given this responsibility. And he did whatever he could.
Which is why we see that during his time, the entire Arabian peninsula, entire urban Peninsula, they became Muslim, isn't it?
after the fact maka, what happened?
The people would come in groups and they would come visit the profits or alarmism and they will become Muslim. They will learn the deen and they will go back home. This is why we learn that Elijah Nasrallah he will fetch water at NASA the Karuna feed in LA of word of YG. What does it mean that when people they come entering Islamic groups, so the prophets are a lot of them, he accomplished his mission in the sense that by the time he passed away, the message had spread all over Arabia, and not just all over Asia, but also for Asia. Roll it up here, the surrounding areas that people have become aware, isn't it?
And the Sahaba, whom he left behind, what did they do?
Did they just say we have a lovely Islamic State now we're so prosperous, we're so successful, that says, live peacefully, go to the masjid. Pray ourselves, recite the Quran. And that's it. No, they didn't stay in Medina.
They didn't stay in their homes, living comfortable lives, that now we get a chance to really enjoy practicing the Quran and living by the Quran and reflecting and doing this and doing that. No, there ibadah was what that the struggle to convey the
Mater is what happens. When we study the Quran, we want that, you know, we should just live by ourselves, spend hours reflecting on the Quran, spend hours reading more and more and reciting more, isn't it? That's what we want to do. But the fact is that if a person just becomes an Abbot, after learning about the deen and he's only benefiting himself.
This is why the status of the island is greater than that of the audit, isn't it?
Because Adam is not just benefiting himself, but what is he doing?
He's benefiting many other people as well.
So the Sahaba they did not just you know, live in Mecca Medina perform or every day, go for hedge every year, go to the left all the time? No. What did they do? They did all of that as well. But along with that, they realized it was their responsibility to convey the Quran to others.
This is why we have a song today.
This is why so many people are Muslim today. This is why Islam spread all over the Middle East Asia all the way to Europe as well.
But why do we see that now it has stopped despite the fact that there are Muslims all over the world. If you look at it, the population of the Muslims is much more compared to the population at that time.
The Muslims have much more wealth today. The Muslims are in every corner of the world places
You've never even heard of isn't at all.
And at the same time, it's so much easier to communicate with one another.
At that time, if you had to communicate with someone you would have to spend days and days traveling. Today, what do you have to do?
Send a text message, post something online, people you've never met, they will receive your messages. But still, why is it that less and less people are coming to know positive things about the Quran today?
Because we have failed to realize our duty,
we do not realize our obligation.
First of all, when it comes to knowing the Quran, ourselves, many of us have failed. When it comes to studying the Quran, ourselves, given the half of the Quran ourselves, we do not give the heck if you ask yourself, genuinely, ask yourself, don't ask anybody. Ask yourself, do I really give the hug?
When I know that I've read, how much is it that I understand? How much do I desire that I understand when I've learned about something do I implement?
So the first thing is to implement ourselves and then you convey to others. So because we have failed to realize our duty, this is why the impact is less there are less people who know positive things about
if we realize that anything that we're doing to help other people understand the Quran to help the Quran reach other people. That is my jihad. That is my struggle, which I hate when BG hasn't Kabira. And I know how much effort I can really put in how much I can really do. And how much am I really doing?
Isn't it you are your best judge.
So think about it, any work that you're doing. Because sometimes we think that when it comes to spreading the word onto other people, it's about giving lectures, it's about teaching. It's about going out in the field and speaking to strangers and telling them about the Quran doing Dawa. Yes, that is included. But it could involve little little things even. It could involve things such as making sure we're doing our assignments properly, because that's the first step,
making sure that we're attending all of the classes. That's the first step.
And then, if we're helping other people study the Quran, marking their test papers, marking their assignments, making their results, all of this is a struggle. All of this is jihad.
What kind of jihad is required? You had in Kabbalah, if you think about it, many people in this world put in so much effort to accomplish many, many things,
People are struggling to have a very successful business people are struggling to run a very successful school do go to a particular college to get a certain degree, isn't it? What kind of efforts do people put in?
Its you haven't Camila isn't, they will go hungry, they will spend so much money, they will spend so many hours, they will not take breaks. But unfortunately, when it comes to working for the dean or studying it, we think that we're doing a favor to others. This is why we have a right to take a break, we have a right to take it easy, we have a right to not do what we're supposed to do we have a right to walk away whenever we want. Do we have a right to threaten other people, we don't want to do this anymore. This is not jihad in Kabbalah.
We have to realize this duty, it's my duty, it's my obligation.
And I am answerable to Allah.
Whether people hold me accountable or not, it's my obligation when you realize it's your job. It's your work when you take ownership of it, then automatically you haven't come
out of automatically it will come. But the first thing is realization, realization.
Now, we see over here that at the beginning of the pseudo What did we learn,
developer lady, miserable corner Allah of Delia cornered in Ireland in India. And this is a fundamental lesson of the soul that the messenger has been sent, the book has been sent to warn the people.
And this book is what the phone call this Furqan tells you, what leads you to gender, what leads you to now, what will make you successful, what will make you unsuccessful? This Furqan is what gives a person a purpose in life. It's this photon. And this is why this full con is not just for me and you. This protocol is for every single person. It's the right of every human being any individual who comes to this dunya that they must get to know what Allah Subhana
data has stalled.
It's there, right?
We talk a lot about people having rights to education, health benefits, so on and so forth. This is the first and foremost right that every single human being has.
Because this is a serious matter, people come to this dunya for a test Allah has sent them and they're going to the aha, where they will be held accountable. So what is it that will guide them? What is right what is wrong, what they're supposed to do what they're not supposed to do, it's the full con. So it's the right of every single person that they must come to know what Allah subhanaw taala has said, and this is why the Quran must be spread in every era. It is the responsibility of the believers of every time of every year of every nation of every city of every place to spread to
think about it. If we truly believe that this Quran is the answer, this is the guide,
then how can we not want it for other people? How is it possible?
There are many people who, for example, they make something for themselves. And when they realize how beneficial it is, what do they start doing? They start sharing it with the world. They will start making videos, they will start posting articles, they will make a blog. Why? Because they believe that what they're doing is good and beneficial.
And they believe that everyone should also do it.
It's very natural. Many times when people have good ideas, what do people suggest? And why don't you start a business? Why don't you start classes? Why don't you write a book? Why don't you start a blog? Why don't you start doing this or that? Because anything that we find is beneficial. We want to help you we want to tell other people about it. When it comes to the Quran, if we truly believe that this is the answer, this is a solution. This is the right way to live. If we believe in that,
then it's not possible that we will not want to share it with others. Many times we see that people who are so involved in the Quran for their own children didn't study.
We want our children to study the best things, we will never encourage them study the Quran as well. Isn't it so many times I've seen people who give so much importance to the Quran. But at the same time their own children, they don't encourage them to study the Quran. Why? If you really give importance to Quran, you will want your children your own child, your own daughter, your own son to learn it first before anything else.
So we must realize that it's our obligation and if we truly believe that the Quran is the solution that we will want it for every single person.
One thing that is mentioned over here in this ayah is that jarhead one big hadn't Kerviel you hadn't Kabira is required. Why do you hadn't Kabira because first of all, it's a huge mission.
It's not just your duty to live by the Quran, but also to tell other people about the Quran and other people do not just include your own family members, but the entire world.
The huge mission, but also because secondly, that when a person begins when a person strives to spread the Quran, you will face many challenges. You will face many, many challenges.
You tell somebody come study the Quran, they say, Oh, interesting outcome, they come along with you very easy. You tell another person, they start arguing with you. They start debating with you. You think this is really the answer using this as something that I should doing. You think other things are not that important. I feel it's important to be a good person.
So, some people, they will listen, other people will not listen. Some people will become your supporters and other people will become your opponents, they will not even let you go for
this is why find a tutor and caffeine. do not obey the disbelievers do not listen to them.
And if you find it difficult to convey the message of the Quran should you give up? No. What should you do? Do you haven't Kabira? Because think about it, put yourself in that position. Maybe once upon a time you were that person whom other people were telling pray?
And you'd be like, No, I don't want to
maybe other people once upon a time we're telling you read the Quran, come to the class with me. And you said no. You never wanted to
Other people told you do this do that. Like No way. Maybe on the surface you listen to them but in your heart you denied you didn't want to your heart was never into it. Whenever you saw religious people who became so concerned and worried
it was a struggle of someone. It was a prayers of someone. It was the effort of someone that got you here today.
Now just imagine if they gave up. If they said, Forget it. Would you be here today? Would you be praying today? Would you be reading the Quran today? No.
Because somebody put in effort. Somebody prayed for you, perhaps it was your mother, who constantly made the offer you constantly prayed for your head, I
never gave up, pushed you pushed you pushed you maybe it was a friend. Maybe it was a distant relative. Somebody did your son, they put an effort. So you are here today. So why shouldn't you put an effort to that other people can benefit as well.
