we're given a second chance in life. And that is why brothers and sisters is so important.

But if you do make a poor choice, then here's your responsibility. Number one, conceal your own force.
Otherwise, if you go around, and you tell people, that you have been a hypocrite, you just do not want to spread evil and wickedness on the earth. So
if you have done something and Allah, by His grace has concealed it for you say don't go around and scandalized your own self, heal with yourself. And make sure that you no longer jeopardize your relationship with your Creator, but rather you try to rectify your relationship with your Creator.

And he said, It has nothing to do with my deeds. Rather, it is just a mercy from Allah.

Why? Why do you make what Allah said above, applicable to you?
Why do you use why you leave behind? The beautiful family? The supportive wife, the good job? Why'd you leave it for this? The people of your own were drowned in the sea. Or you are drowning in your own.
Somebody else calls that my husband has such a beautiful job. He's the general manager of this company. We have beautiful sons and daughters. Yet my husband hit the addiction of pornography and we say Why?

Third sister goes on. She said we have beautiful family successful business, or what have you met my husband took on gambling and we asked, Why?
