That's just what it is, like, everything else comes and goes, like your work.

And then the rest of the day you can go about doing whatever else you know chasing your risk and whatever it is, you know, your studies and your responsibilities and things like that. The trick is that we get tricked all the time. But this is thinking that there's not enough time there's not enough time for a slam there's not enough time to study Alienware to further my knowledge of a slab or things like that. I'll do it later. Right? Well, no later never comes. It's not an issue of time. A lot controls time and a dad or a family but later on they have a law set in the Hadith. Coetzee says I am tired. I cause the I

alternate the night and day. Okay, is one second like any other second is every second the same? Are they substitutable are they homogenous? No, they're not right. If you're doing something that you love time flies and if you are sitting in class waiting for that bell to ring so you can go on to your weekend or vacation time crawls. Write a lock and put bucket in time. You're not going to get anything out of your time. If you don't please Allah first prioritize a slip and everything else is going to fall into line.
