Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah guys. The greatest flooding that has taken place in Mina in the last 17 years just happened. We literally had bags and things floating away. Electricity was taken out. Many of our Hajaj asthmatics, heart patients, people who needed nebulizers, Sleep Apnea machines, anxiety kicked in. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Welcome friends to day eight. And today we will make some intentions. We will play some mile markers in the ground and we are prepared for success.
Or they don't have time to do this. I got one guy on the on the nebulizer in there. I've got two heart patients waiting to be seen. Like it's I've never seen flooding like this ever. We were completely left to the will of Allah subhanaw taala hajima Brewer
As salam Alaikum on the hardest day of Jamaat, on the hardest day of May now when you're here the whole day, it rained like it hasn't rained in 17 years, me now was flooded by like luggage was loading on the top of like 10 inches of water. And it was it was an ordeal. I will tell you nothing. No one in our hearts group has experienced anything like that. But the show must go on 50 people plus the workers shoveled water with spoons with food trays with brooms. And as a result, we cleaned out our camp. And now we're walking to gem rot. It's 400 Plus stairs. The escalator was out. But the escalator just came back in. It is on like Donkey Kong friends. This is what hurts. Preparation is
about stuff that you could never prepare for like that it would flood in the middle of the desert. Baraka lofi come that get up on that escalator. So you jump Murad
long, long, long bow holds we'll be learning in a shape on every gene. So really unique experience. We got to
pick up the food into little trays. And as a result, we're getting to take a lot of the excess food that we have and share it with people around us. I think it's an amazing experience might be self righteous, but right now it's fairly pretty nice.

Let's go now record the entire Quran and help the world memo right
is the virtual memorization system that we've been talking about? Thanks for helping me raise the funds. I'll see you guys at home was salam aleikum? Wa Rahmatullah. Here we are in day number eight. And we've talked about acceptance. We've talked about resilience. So resilience led us to being patient with ourself. And that takes a little bit of time. But in today's portion, and as you can see, you'll also see in the vlog for day eight, it's not just about constantly being patient with yourself.
You're not babysitting a child, there's an essence of being with yourself being with yourself. So today, I thought four or five points, maybe you'll draw six from them, on how to be with yourself. When you're sitting when you're in moments of post resilience, post acceptance, when you're in a meditative state or outside, how can you be with yourself? Let's go with step number one, we've said this before, treat yourself as if you are responsible for someone else, you usually tend to treat them really well. So today, we're going to extend that idea and go to be your own friend. And when I say that, be a friend, doesn't there? Isn't there an instinctive part of you that already knows how
to be a friend? Okay, so now let's walk down that together. Being with yourself should be like being with a friend. Let's talk about the first step of when you're with a friend and you make a suggestion, do they immediately chop you down and tell you how you're not good enough and how you failed last time? No, they usually tell you what you're doing, right? They're like, Hey, this is a great way.
And before that, excuse me, they usually like you the way that you are, even before you give the
suggestion or a thought. The first thing that a friend does and you do instinctively is you're like your friend the way you are, they are you're not spending your whole time trying to fix them.
Number two, when you do make the suggestion, your friend who likes you the way that you are, will start telling you, hey, here's what you're getting right? Here's what you succeeded with before, and they will begin to deal with you. And that fourth step step in compassion. They like you the way they are, they'll tell you what you've done right? Already. They're telling you and dealing with you with compassion. And number four, a friend will usually tell you Mistakes happen, failures happen. Remember, try fail, learn, try again, your friend will be there, or a friend should be there to tell you mistakes happen. We all mess up. And we we you need to know that they're there as a friend. And
if you fall back into this and stop looking at yourself first. Do you know how to be a friend? Yes, you do. Instinctively, you know how to do that. So today Bismillah. I am asking you to learn to be with yourself the way you would be with a friend, taking time to enjoy the things that you do enjoy liking you the way that you are. And now a friend doesn't just accept you the way you are, they will meet you halfway in order to reach your goals. And that's how I hope you would do it and say, hey, I want to do this. I want to improve this. I want to grow in this space in my life. I want to personally develop this character about me. And then meet yourself. Meet yourself like a friend with
compassion, see what you've gotten right? And get yourself a plan. You remember we talked about this, about fixing the things that are the immediate problems and the long term issues that you see us make a plan for them.
Meet your plan the way you would meet your friends plan. And I hope that I can I not hope because hope is empty. I know that you and I are going to take acceptance, resilience and patience, fuse them together, to no longer have to tolerate ourselves, but to love being with ourselves. So long is upon us all friends. We did it. Thank you for closing out this day with me. Now let's prepare for the journey home and carrying all of our intentions with us. Thank you again, a day of being with ourself
