00:01:11--> 00:02:01

When a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam first received revelation and he saw this strange entity that he later found out was Djibouti. He became worried perturb What am I seeing what is this is something wrong with me. And he rushed back to our mother. Khadija Radi Allahu Anhu Xin Maloney Dorothy Rooney and her mother Khadija comforted her, put her blanket around him, comforted him, and said, la Wallah, he loved your Zika Allahu Akbar da Khadija Radi Allahu Taala and her the lady of Iman and Taqwa, the lady who understood the reality of what is happening, she said to our Prophet sallallahu are they he was setting them I swear by Allah. Allah will never humiliate you humiliate

00:02:01--> 00:02:46

you by causing you to see weird things. No, Allah will never humiliate you. Allah will never misguide you why? This is before any Quran has come down. This is before any revelation. Khadija does not yet know that he is a prophet, but she knows Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and she knows what is called the Sooners of Allah, the customs of Allah. And in her pure Eman, her pure fitrah she understands that somebody as righteous as the prophets of Allah who Allah he was setting them will not be humiliated in this manner to go man to go crazy to see something strange and bizarre to see what he might think as a boy, No, Allah is never gonna do that to you. Why, why? She then described

00:02:46--> 00:03:32

the character of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she summarized the essence of a pre prophetic Muhammad salallahu idea he was setting them she said five phrases number one in Nicola Tassilo Rahim you are good and loving to your family. You are good and loving to your family. Number two, we're in the middle and you carry the burdens of other people. You carry the loads of others, those who are not able to carry their own burdens. Therefore cara de uttama the Messiah King, the strangers they have burdens they have difficulty carry those burdens. You go out of your way out rasool Allah and you take on those burdens when Nicola can. Number three what took Sybil my job and

00:03:32--> 00:04:18

you give money to those who have no money. You give money to those who need money. Number four what to create life any stranger comes and he guest comes and you give the guest the necessities of hospitality, food and drink and service and making sure they have a place to stay. You are hospitable to your guests. And number five, what are you know Allah Jimmy in a while it will help and you take charge of every good matter in the community. You are at the forefront of taking charge of that. This beautiful summary, Khadija Rhodiola wine her new YA rasool Allah, you have combined these characteristics and Allah does not allow those characteristics to go to waste. When you are

00:04:18--> 00:04:59

somebody who has combined all of these things, Allah will not humiliate you rather Allah will honor you, Allah will bless you, Allah will raise your ranks. Subhanallah This was before any deep theology came down. This was before any laws and he felt any outcome came. And no doubt this was the beginning of an entire revelation. This was the beginning of a new Sharia a new Aqeedah and there is no doubt that the religion of Islam is composed of a lot of doctrines and a lot of rulings and a calm and a lot of faith and a lot of advanced theta and whatnot. And our scholars came along with that revelation of the 20

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

Three years, and they diversified Islamic sciences. They made Islam into so many important disciplines, you have filth, you have a soil, you have a data. All of these are great and good. But Subhanallah sometimes, sometimes some amongst us, we get lost in the forest and we forget the trees. We get lost in the details, and we forget the larger picture. Before all of these rulings came down. Before all of these details came down. What was the quintessential message of our Prophet salallahu idea he was selling what was the 40 years of his life combined as we find it in these simple characteristics, you would take care of those who needed to take care of you were kind and

00:05:44--> 00:06:28

compassionate, you were loving, you took care of the needs of the community. And no doubt our religion does have lots of common rulings. But sometimes sometimes we need a reminder of the simplicity of this faith as well. And we are all reeling with the loss of our dear respected matriarch Nazim Auntie May Allah subhana wa Tada grant her for those and forgive her sins, and in her life, and in the service that she did. I feel there is so much benefit not just for this community, but for those who don't know her they're going to be watching online they don't know they haven't met her, but from her lessons and stories and from the reality of her lived life, in light

00:06:28--> 00:07:09

of the Quran and Sunnah. We can extract so many generic benefits for all of us to benefit from for all of us to take advantage of because those of us in this community, we see the effects of what I'm going to be talking about those and other communities can understand that such people are still around and we see how Allah Subhana Allah blesses them. Do your brothers and sisters when the Quran came down when the Sunnah became more diversified in the process of expounded all of these teachings, there is no denial that Islam is much more than what the prophet system was before the coming of Quran. But what he was before if crop, it is also essential. It is in fact the summary of

00:07:09--> 00:07:54

what it means to be a righteous person who doesn't have lots of knowledge of all of the outcome that came out. And that is why the Quran and Sunnah enshrined this pre prophetic Prophet, the qualities of our NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, those 40 years that he lived, they weren't in vain. It was not useless, his o'clock and manners, they themselves are lessons for us to benefit from and when the Quran came down when the Sunnah was revealed as a way by ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada those qualities were also praised. The Quran tells us Oh you who believe it or carry west you do what failed all higher. Worship Allah in your recording sujood and continue to do good to people if you want to be

00:07:54--> 00:08:36

successful, one of the earliest revelations so at that hedge, this is a McHugh Surah worth for I will hire a lawyer under come to flip on our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked who is the most beloved of people to mankind? Who does Allah love the most? He did not say Allah Allah is the One who has the most dreaded him Allah Allah was the one who is the most famous No, listen to this beautiful Hadith authentic hadith. In the morning jump of October Ronnie authentic hadith, a heartburn nurse in Allah He and Pharaoh homeliness, the most beloved of all of the people to Allah are the ones who benefit the people the most. This is the prophet of Islam Premack pre pre white,

00:08:36--> 00:09:22

this is who he was a hub buenas, and Faro homeliness, the most beloved of all people to Allah are the ones who helped other people the most. And then he went on. And he said, what happened? In Allah, the Most Beloved of all good deeds to Allah, so rule that Hello, who are the called the Muslim happiness that you enter into the heart of the Muslim, memorize this, the most beloved D to Allah is to make somebody who sad, happy to take care of the needs of somebody else. So true happiness, that you you were the one who caused that person to be happy, that is the most beloved de to Allah subhanho wa taala. And the most blessed of all deeds, he said, is to lift up a difficulty

00:09:22--> 00:09:59

to make a difficulty easy for that person, or to get rid of a debt that that person has, or to eliminate the hunger that that person has. Then our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, All of this is a beautiful Hadith long Hadith. If I were to spend an hour helping my brother in his cause, if I were to spend an hour of my day of my task, helping my brother in his cause, to make life easier for him, it is more beloved to me than spending one month here to cough in this masjid, which masjid, the Masjid of the prophets of Allah who it he was setting up. Then I'm sure if he saw

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

If you if I were to spend one hour exerting myself helping my brother or my sister when they need my help, that is more beloved to me than a month long have it take off in this Masjid. Subhanallah brothers and sisters sometimes Wallahi I think that we have lost priorities. And sometimes and I blame myself and our class of scholars, sometimes Wallahi some of us make Islam much more complicated than it needs to be. Yes, Islam has accorded Yes, Islam has come. Yes, Islam has encyclopedias of Fick there is no question tough. See, these are important disciplines. But let us not lose track of the very basics of what it means to be a Muslim. Believe in Allah subhana wa Tada

00:10:48--> 00:11:22

expect there's a day of judgment in heaven and hell, and then live your life spreading clear and good and love unto others. It's as simple as that. And we see this in the life of our own matriarch our own mother of this community, and from her own life, the real life that we have all seen her live in light of the Quran and Sunnah. Let me extract five blessings that I want all of us to strive to achieve five blessing that we want all of us to achieve. Number one, brothers and sisters, number one,

00:11:23--> 00:11:49

there is nothing that substitutes genuine love. There is nothing that substitutes the power of love, all of the room in the world, all of the money that you compare that you that you compile all of the CEO fame and positive energy you might have. It is nothing in comparison to the effects of the loving heart.

00:11:51--> 00:12:39

The People's admiration and love the respect that they give you. It will not come based upon your degrees. It will not come based upon your level of education. It will not come based upon the fame and the wealth that you have. Genuine down to earth raw, Sincere love, the power of love, and the love that you will acquire from that power. You can never acquire it from any other source. Even our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is told in the Quran, that ya rasool Allah, if you were cold hearted, if you had a sharp tongue that would have left you, when you are loving, your o'clock are going to blossom because what is a clock, what is a clock, all of a clock comes from genuinely

00:12:39--> 00:13:19

loving the other person. As for the details of a clap, you don't need to be taught. If you genuinely care about the other person, you genuinely have a sense of love for the other person than all of the details of a clap. You don't need to be taught, it's in the heart. You want to benefit this person. Nobody needs to teach you how to benefit. And we see this reality in the life of our elderly matriarch and auntie and we see this reality in the Quran and Sunnah we see this reality amongst the Salah in we see this reality and the life of the prophets of Allah why they he was setting them that is why he had the best of luck. That is why all of a clock is based upon this love in Surah Yaseen

00:13:19--> 00:14:00

Allah subhanho wa Taala describes that person who came from the farthest part of the city, which ultimately de la Julius ah, and they tried to kill him. Eventually they killed him, even when they killed him. When he entered Jana, he says Allah later called me either Moon, the male Hoffer or the rugby which I didn't even remote Grameen How I wish my people could see that this religion is true. I want my people to believe in this if an ibis or the Allahu Anhu said, this is a man who showed his sincerity to his people when he was alive. And even after that when they killed him, that love that you have, It conquers all. And we see this in the Quran and Sunnah. And we see this in the lived

00:14:00--> 00:14:06

reality of our elderly auntie. Secondly, the second thing that I want to remind myself and all of you,

00:14:07--> 00:14:57

being in the service of others, and helping others without discrimination, and being selfless, in that cause, will gain you what nothing else will gain you. As our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Men can if he has a tip, he can Allahu hydrati He, whoever takes care of the problems of his brother, Allah azza wa jal will take care of his problems. Whoever makes his brother happy, Allah will make him happy. Whoever eases the pain of his brother, Allah will ease his pains, if not able to him although to either he says that both the Archon the intellect, and the Quran and Sunnah and the fitrah and human experience, regardless of which civilization and faith you follow, he said,

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

shows us that

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

The best way to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala is to believe in Him. And then to practice Epson to his Hulk. The best way to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala is to be a believer in Allah and then to help the creation of Allah subhana wa Tada regardless of their faith, regardless of their backgrounds, helping every one and the stories that we are hearing we're just beginning to hear and more and more and this is not only in our Nissim, Auntie button every righteous Adam and every righteous saint of the past, the same characteristic that the number of people this person would help would only be discovered after their death. They would help people in secret and private

00:15:43--> 00:16:26

only when they're gone. Stories are going to start coming oh, he did this. Oh, she did that. We used to hear these stories and read them. Remember, ZZ Top these great righteous and now we see a lived experience right now. After the death of our own Nissim Auntie people are calling up finding out we now are hearing Oh, refugees over here. Strangers that came students that came from another land, all these stories are coming up, giving the love and giving them service taking care of them. And this we see in the Quran and Sunnah. And we see Allah azza wa jal blesses those people who are in the service of others. Point number three brothers and sisters, point number three in this lesson

00:16:26--> 00:16:31

that we can extract. You don't have to have much to give much.

00:16:33--> 00:16:36

You don't have to have a lot of wealth to be generous.

00:16:37--> 00:16:43

You don't have to have a fortune to take care of large groups of refugees and crises. No.

00:16:45--> 00:16:59

All you need to do is to be a conduit a Sabine, between those that have and those that don't have SubhanAllah. This was the lady she did not have a full time job with a large income.

00:17:00--> 00:17:20

She did not have high level of education that many of you all here have. But what she did have was the trust of the people and the knowledge of the community. A few phone calls to the wealthy, a few phone calls to those who need and she becomes the conduit. You don't need to have a fortune to spend a fortune FISA be the law.

00:17:22--> 00:17:23

All you need is a pure heart.

00:17:24--> 00:18:05

Every year multiple projects in our own community. I myself when I was living here every year we would help her out, fundraise on her behalf not knowing how much you raise, not caring to us. Did any amongst you ever doubt her sincerity? Did any wonder Oh, all this money I'm giving? Is it actually going there while law he thought thought didn't even cross our minds. She says we have 100 refugees we need to feed them she says these children need toys. She says we're raising funds for this and that and Hollis no questions asked whatever you have handed over and you know it's gonna go over there. And now we're hearing the stories of the people who benefited from that charity. She

00:18:05--> 00:18:12

didn't have that wealth. But she had our hearts. She had our trust and she became a means.

00:18:13--> 00:18:16

We don't need to have a fortune to give a fortune.

00:18:17--> 00:19:00

Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran, woman Yesh. facture for at an SN attend your cooler who know Cebu minha. Whoever is the middleman the chef ah, whoever does that, whilst the TA he shall get a share of all that he has done. I will Prophet Sall Allahu Allah he was sending them said, the one who does good and advises others to do good shall get the reward of the one who actually does the good. The one who's the middleman, a dull Adelheid, the one who tells people how to do good shall get the reward of the one who does the good. Can you imagine every one of us gave 50 100? She compiled 50 100,000 a year for 5040 years. Can you imagine the amount that she gave? Even though she

00:19:00--> 00:19:40

didn't get from her own pocket? Do you understand the blessings of just being the middleman and SubhanAllah? How can we not then be positively jealous of a lady who didn't have a fortune and yet gave her fortune? She didn't have that in her bank account. But she still gave more than any one of us could possibly have given and she's getting the budget of all of that. Is this not a lesson for all of us? Why are we stingy, about connecting people to do good. We see the opportunity we see a person in need. We know another person that wants to just be the middleman be the conduit and Allah will bless and Allah will make your reputation more and Allah will give you the opportunity to

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

continue to rise up. So this is a beautiful point. You don't need to have a fortune to give a fortune. Do what you can to be a middleman. See an opportunity? No who can help him that opportunity and then inshallah Tada be a part of that opportunity. A fourth blessing that we all see

00:20:01--> 00:20:17

Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, seven are those who shall be sheltered under the shade of Allah when there is no shade other than his shade, one of them a person whose heart was attached to the masjid called boo whom will come build masjid.

00:20:18--> 00:20:43

And we know that our Auntie Anna seem was one such person. What is the Kalahari that we know her heart, her life her service was completely attached to the masjid. Subhan Allah Allah says in the Quran in nama yamu massager, Allah He man, Amina Billa, who will Yeoman after the only people who can frequently House of Allah and take care of the house of Allah or those who truly believe in Allah and the Last Day,

00:20:44--> 00:21:17

her entire life. Her services, her family's life, was dedicated to the Kadima of the community and the Masjid. This is an encouragement for all of us. We need to prioritize, not our work, not our risk, not our corporations Wallahi the day we die, they're going to replace us without any love whatsoever. You think your corporation really cares about you? You know this as well as I do. The minute you are gone from this earth colors, they're gonna find a substitute and as if

00:21:19--> 00:21:21

you never existed yesterday, how about Ghana you will become

00:21:22--> 00:22:07

but those who will love you and care about you. It's your community and masjid, it's your fellow believers. So make sure your lives your children's lives, your extended families lives they have a higher purpose than the dunya. And the way to find that higher purpose is within the Muslim community. Within giving service through the masjid with the Masjid. We are all aware of the days of Ramadan, the If thought is the source. Literally those last 10 nights she would come before us all set up everything the entire Iftar take care of and then barely pray Tara we're because she's taking care of cleaning while I am leading. It gives me hot dinners. She's doing the dishes outside, I

00:22:07--> 00:22:48

would hear the clinging and whatnot. When we exit, everything is clean, then we're going to sleep she's preparing for soccer within the last 10 nights. And then the sore throat is prepared. We go back after fajr she's cleaning up. People have different ways of worshipping Allah. And sometimes those who worship through other than rituals will have higher than those who worship through rituals. She made the way for our tarawih activity easy for our thoughts to be easy. She took care of 1000s of people you don't think that's going to be the budget of one person all of us over there. We learned from here, edema and a bada is of different ways. It's not just through and through sada

00:22:48--> 00:23:29

and rituals, no many ways to bring about a bada and Allah has written different types of Ariba for different people. As I said, even the other day, you don't have to have a PhD in Islam to benefit the ummah. You don't have to have a fortune to benefit the OMA and people like nisi Monty and others, they show us this reality. So point number four, Allah has open different doors of service, and of the biggest and best services is through the masjid what our children call bumo masjid, and we pray that insha Allah she will be of those who are sheltered because of this hadith. And the final point again, much can be said, but again, time is limited. The final point that Subhanallah

00:23:29--> 00:23:36

the love that Allah has written in the hearts of people for an individual. This is not something I and you can control.

00:23:37--> 00:23:57

This is not something that you can purchase with money. It's not something that you can acquire even if you aim for it. Think about it. You want the people to love you. You have that in your agenda. What are you going to do to make the people love you? How will you bring that about? That love that is written for people it comes from up above?

00:23:58--> 00:24:03

Only Allah azza wa jal can bless that love of a person in a community.

00:24:05--> 00:24:40

It is not a coincidence that a lady like Missy amante without having the type of education most of you do without having the type of resources and wealth without having the type of resume that corporations might want. That her janazah was the largest janazah in the history of Memphis. It's not a coincidence. How did that trauma affect all of us? How did so many of us fly in from different places? How did that come? How did that love? How did that anxiety come about? In the Ludhiana, Armen who saw the heart is

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

those who are righteous and those who do good, Allah shall write love for them. Allah shall write wood for them. That wood does not come because you intended to get it. It doesn't come because you have an agenda and you're going to acquire the hearts of the people. No

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

If you can get the respect of the people by a money via fame, you can get the fear of the people by a power you cannot acquire their love except through love.

00:25:10--> 00:25:19

And this is what she demonstrated for us. And Wallah. It's people like her that remind me of the Hadith, Hadith Bootsy Bukhari and Muslim.

00:25:21--> 00:25:48

When Allah azza wa jal loves somebody, he announces to Gibreel I love so and so. So love him. So God immediately loves him. Then Gibreel comes down to every group of angels, and jubilees says, Oh group of angels, Allah loves so and so. So love this person. So the angels love that person, then the prophecies that have said, so when Cabul is written for this person in the heavens, the people of the earth also have a bowl for this person.

00:25:49--> 00:26:20

This is how you attain a bowl. This is how you attain respect and love, piety and Taqwa and righteousness. This is the essence of the religion of Islam. Don't be confused by everything that comes after, and I'm not trivializing the important sciences. No, I'm not of course, we have all of that. But let's not lose track of the very basics of this faith. Believe in Allah and do good to the creation of Allah subhanho wa taala. Brothers and sisters, in this tragedy,

00:26:22--> 00:26:34

so many of us have come together, thought long and hard about our own lives. Death is indeed a wake up call for every one of us. The suddenness of death is a wake up call.

00:26:35--> 00:27:26

And one wonders when our death comes. How many people will remember us? When our death comes? How many people will sacrifice and come to our Genesis? How many people will drive in fly in? Really ask yourself this question? How many people will really it's not just oh, I was just with him, no genuine do ours from the heart, genuine grief. We see the reality of one elderly lady and how the community has galvanized because of her absence. What is your legacy? And what is mine? How will people grieve? How will people mourn when our turn comes? Let every single death and especially a death like this one, be a means of life for every one of us. And that too can be a sadhaka gitea For

00:27:26--> 00:28:10

our anti Nazim. And one final point brothers and sisters. Of course before I conclude Subhanallah SubhanAllah. The name the same as our Sharia serve. As I mentioned, it needs to be mentioned here. What does this mean? It means that gentle, soft breeze that touches and affects everything without leaving even any sign without the wind, shaking the leaf but the wind affects positively everyone the gentle breeze And subhanAllah Islam Allah Musa, she affected all of us in a ways we didn't even appreciate until she's gone. Her presence was felt throughout the community without causing any disruption. That's what necie means. The wind that blows that doesn't rattle the way the leaves it

00:28:10--> 00:28:28

doesn't cause any sound. It's just a breeze with a scent beautiful scent that fills the room and nobody can feel it, but his presence is everywhere. That's her name is Adam with some one final Hadith that I have, especially in light of this and all other issues. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:28:29--> 00:28:39

Manzana, la cama rufen, McAfee, who, whoever has done good for you return the good to them, if you can do it physically through money,

00:28:40--> 00:29:24

who cannot then make dua for them until you feel that you have given them their health upon you. There's an authentic hadith in the Muslim ummah, and others, every one of us who felt that love and that charity, every one of us who was impacted by that, and not just from her, but again, the hood but is broader than one individual, but through her life where we're getting these lessons, everyone who impacted you, everyone whom you owe something to, don't delay returning the favor. In the last few weeks and months, I myself have lost many people one after the other. Allahu was done. And you don't want to regret that. We went on bad terms because of a misunderstanding. You don't want to

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

regret that I didn't live up to my heart. I didn't tell you I really felt you don't want to be petty about something of this nature. So whoever has done good to you helped you financed you pushed you forward, whomever you owe a favor to from throughout your entire life. Do something for them before it is too late. Thank them in this dunya give them something that shows how much they mean to you. Make dua for them. And once they have moved on, then do good deeds on their behalf because this is what our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded us to do.

00:30:00--> 00:30:12

May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless me and you with her through the Quran. And May He make us of those who is versus they understand and applies halal and haram throughout our lifespan as scholars forgiveness you as well ask him for his love of food and the ramen.

00:30:21--> 00:30:45

hamdulillah All praise is due to Allah, the One and the unique, it is he alone that we worship, it is his aid that we seek. He is the Lord of the week and he hears the dua of the oppressed brothers and sisters, our prophets, Assam said in a very interesting hadith is a Hadith that really causes us to think it's in the Muslim the Sunnah of human imager. Our Prophet saw some said, when any one of you is afflicted with a calamity.

00:30:46--> 00:30:59

Let him take comfort by thinking of the calamity of my death, the process of his death, because there is no calamity bigger for the OMA than my death.

00:31:00--> 00:31:11

This is a very interesting Hadith I remember the first time I came across it, when I was a student first year is like, is this hadith really mean? What I think it means I went to my shift I did my research. Yes, it does exactly mean this.

Any time we are afflicted with a calamity, our Prophet system said take constellation, take constellation, in what? In a calamity that is far bigger than my calamity and your calamity, take constellation in my death. How? How can we take consolation in the death of the Prophet system? It's very simple. The Prophet system is telling us when he's alive, the biggest tragedy of this ummah shall be my death. And we know what happened at his death. We went over this, you know, we know how the Sahaba reacted, they couldn't process it. But then what did the OMA cease to exist? Did the OMA extinguish itself did all hope get lost? No. The Sahaba recollected their wits, the Sahaba pursued

00:31:59--> 00:32:07

onwards And subhanAllah Islam spread because of them from China all the way to Andalus within one generation,

00:32:08--> 00:32:56

take consolation that after every tragedy, after every masiva, after every calamity, you shall in shallow to recover yourselves, and you show march on forward, and the datawalk. And the message and the project will continue. If anyone was linked to a project, it was our Prophet salallahu idea he was sending him yet still, even after his death, the project of Islam, the religion of Islam continued to flourish, if that's going to happen with his death, then how about any other calamity and tragedy? This is what we're being told that the work cannot stop that no matter what happens to you, your life, your loved ones, you cannot just stop everything as if the world is gone. No. That's

00:32:56--> 00:33:08

not what our religion teaches us. Yes, the heart is sad. And that is fine. Yes, the eyes cry. And that is a mercy from Allah subhanho wa taala. Yes, we shall grieve, and that's being human.

00:33:09--> 00:33:54

But we don't become immobilized and frozen in the past. And this is where any tragedy for any tragedy. We don't just go into depression and become morose and become more but no, we recover ourselves slowly, it's going to take a while, day by day, bit by bit, we gain our momentum. And then we continue with our lives and with the bigger project of this religion, and of leaving a legacy. This is a beautiful idea that reminds us that life goes on for the rest of us until even our life finishes, then it will go on for our descendants and their descendants after them. The Ummah shall never cease to exist until the day of judgment. And the opportunity to do good will always be there,

00:33:54--> 00:34:36

regardless of who is or isn't on this Earth. Even the prophecies and himself told us even when I'm gone, is going to continue. And that is exactly what happened. So none of us should allow a tragedy to immobilize us and become stagnant. On the contrary, we grieve, we are saddened, but life must go on. And this is what our religion teaches us. Only Allah remains forever the rest of us we have a limited time. And in that timeframe, we do what we can we benefit when we can, every time a loved one dies every time a person close to us drives dies, yes, it's going to cause us that grief, but we will recover our wits and we'll continue down the path until finally it is my time to go or your

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

time to go. And when that happens, even then the project and the OMA and the mission shall continue. This is what Allah azza wa jal desired from us. And this is what our Sharia teaches us.
