burqa tiny, tiny but can tiny on them be women, according to me be the opposite of React is also a problem. And it would not be fair to talk about RIA showing off without talking about the flip side opposite and that is to avoid doing the good deed out of a fear of showing off. So you're at a fundraiser and you want to give $1,000 Then you remember my talk of today? And you say no, no, no. Let me close this, the checkbook and put my pen back. And then all of the Ekena guys are going to come to me as they share. What did you do you ruined all fundraiser. They didn't want to give anything. So I have to put this disclaimer on as well. And that is

Get rid of it, cleanse it. Don't sit down and say Oh, I can't do anything I'm scared of showing off. Don't continue on allow that evil to persist in your heart No. Be a believer stand up and face shape on face to face. Take your sword of Tawheed out take your sword of la ilaha illallah out and you
