Okay, if we imagine that okay in America, there are some people who believe in an afterlife. And there's some people who don't believe in an afterlife, but they're very insistent upon sort of checking and keeping in place the people who believe in an afterlife. And that is an indication that deep down they know they're wrong. Because as Allah says in the Quran and multiple places, or at least he implies, if he doesn't say it directly. Now, he does say it directly at a few in a few points, that at the base of it all is that they really just want the dunya they really just want to do whatever they want, and not be told that they're doing anything wrong. And so I'll tell you a

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

story from when I was a waiter. I used to be a waiter in restaurants when I first accepted a snap. And there was a Catholic lady that worked with me, and she would play the numbers, she would buy a lottery ticket, or something like this. And she would try to get the rest of the coworkers to like, give her the numbers, right, like, take a number from you and a number from you. And she would say, if I win, we'll all split the winnings.

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

And so she asked me for a number. I said, I'm not giving you a number.

00:01:07--> 00:01:25

Gamble. I don't believe in Dallas against my religion. She's like, What are you talking about? I said, No, it's like I don't, she got so angry at me. Just because I refused to participate. I didn't even give her a lecture. I didn't tell her that what she was doing was wrong. I didn't try to impose anything on her. Just the fact that I said that. I'm not going to do it.

00:01:27--> 00:02:01

She knew she was wrong. And that cognitive dissonance that people have that uncomfortableness in their soul. They're gonna lash out at you. You think that you're better than other people? You think you're so pious and religious? I see what you do. You do other stuff, all the games that they play, because deep down, they know that they're doing something wrong. So that's the same situation that people at the bottom of and that's why a lot of times all adjusters are spaced on sincerity. He judged us based on sincerity. The people who deep down know what they're doing is wrong. They're gonna get it in the end. They're gonna get it there are some people who are purely ignorant and

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

truly ignorant but there's a lot of people that are just playing games that deep down under at all they know what they're doing.
