salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was salam, ala rasulillah he sallallahu sallam, quote number 12 in my book better means says, do not pretend to be someone else, be yourself and Excel to be the best version of who you truly are. And one of the greatest mistake that people make is to pretend to be someone else or to try to imitate other people in life. Yes, we should have role models to look up to. But to be them is something different. It's actually the shortest cut that you could use to or the shortest cut to failure. In fact, so look at the live demo. So may Allah be pleased with him, for example, who was talking about the the
companions who passed away he said, Men Canna, mustonen philea Stan nabbit women called meta whosoever wanted to follow a path or a way, he should follow the path of those who already passed away. For him that hirelateral men alike in fitment, because the living are still alive, and they could make mistakes, they could mislead the people and so on. But the people who passed away already their their actions have come to an end.

May Allah be pleased with him, I want to highlight one aspect where he said
or can will lie they the the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim the least superficial. So one of the criteria of success is to really become yourself. I was in in one of the countries recently and they were telling me that you know, in order for you to reach out these audience, you have to do this you have to wear this you have to talk like this, you have to be like that. And I told him spawn a lie. You're now trying to make me someone else that I don't feel comfortable with. The best way to reach out to people is just to show them who you truly are. yourself, be yourself and things will be much easier or why. See to orange Allah Allah bless you all, Santa Monica.
