The next hanging out with friends, the next night at the club, the next Netflix show the next whatever it is that's distracting you, that's keeping you from being grateful to your Lord. So panel data, and that the remedy to shake yourself out of this and to to wake up is to think about where you're going, the ultimate destination of everybody, the Day of Judgment, the day where we're going to be brought back to life, and we're going to be taken into account. We're going to be asked about what we used to do.
