As salam o aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah, who are the early he will be one word on my bad spot. Allah is just an interesting Allah's Kadena was coming to record my lecture. And on the way in we we find the brother desire is waiting outside the messenger, the close Messenger, and listening to his story Subhanallah what an amazing, amazing story. And it really shows you. So I thought, I'm gonna make a quick video about this, it really shows you the smallest of good deeds that go the longest ways. Our brother Josiah, he had a roommate from the middle, he had a colleague from the Middle East who was studying with him in the same

00:00:42 --> 00:01:08

university, and they exchanged numbers and our Muslim brothers said that you know, if you need anything, give me a call. Three months later, brothers, I was in a bit of a, you know, small crisis needed to get to the airport, he calls up this brother. And he immediately says, Oh, of course, and he takes him to the airport. And thus begins a strong friendship that just increased over time. And our brother Josiah was just very impressed with the the demeanor and the generosity of

00:01:09 --> 00:01:42

his name is Brother Ahmed. I haven't met the brother who went back home to the Middle East and brothers, I continue to ask him more about his faith. And you know, it's been a year since brother Ahmed returned to the Middle East for brother Josiah has continued to ask around and research and Subhanallah here he is today, he drove all the way to Epic, not even knowing if anybody would be here or not. Because he wanted to embrace Islam. And it was Allah's other that you know, the staff is here, and I'm here because we're recording, you know, my lectures that we're doing, recording them. And so as Allah is there, otherwise it would have been an empty, you know, Masjid, but Allah

00:01:42 --> 00:02:15

works, you know, in ways that we never understand. And here we use and hamdulillah so I asked his permission, I said, you know, it's such a beautiful, small story, it really cheers us up. And it shows us that the smallest of good deeds, giving somebody a right and just just doing something good, that's it, these small things that are planted, you know, in the seeds of other people, they just open up doors and avenues and are ready to die has been studying the Quran, he has been reading on his own and asking lots of questions. And he's now decided that Al Hamdulillah he wants to embrace Islam, brother desire, welcome to Epic. Thank you. Alhamdulillah. So 100, I've already asked

00:02:15 --> 00:02:51

Is that correct? Yes, sir. I'm embracing enzyme and my own freewill. Okay, that's great. Well, the way to proceed to convert is very easy.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:40

And also, I do believe that Allah was Allah is the One and Only got perfect perfect view you can't really get better than that Subhanallah what you're attracting you to Islam is basically the belief in one God and then the purity of helping other people out really that's all that Islam is all about. Really these two things summarize the entire faith is sincere to your Lord and then help out people as you would want to be helped out that's basically what our profit so they sort of taught us also
