What are the updates of you know, we just came from a very busy season with Porter Ben. And you guys did some stuff in Africa. What's going on? Yes. 100% 100 Levels Level of samurai sword.

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

We have. We've had, you'd say JAM PACKED month. Subhanallah first and foremost, how was your Alhamdulillah it was all good. It was super super super hot here in Texas. You guys get to enjoy a nice cool evening, the Australian show this time

00:02:48 --> 00:02:52

in Lebanon. Oh, yeah, that's right. You guys were in Lebanon, but at rest of people Australia.

00:02:53 --> 00:03:10

Yes. Was was a pretty warm one, though. It was actually pretty well once upon a about 40 to 43 here on the day. So Pamela, it's actually saying it's starting to get warmer and hotter. In up in the northern hemisphere as well as that right? Or it's starting to cool down now. Depends on you ask.

00:03:15 --> 00:03:20

That's fair enough. Insha Allah, but Subhanallah No, it was, it was an amazing experience. panela we,

00:03:21 --> 00:03:45

we we not only performed the core band that needed to be performed on the eight days leading up to the day very Hamdulillah we went to Niger, and we actually carried out the eye cataract operations there, Al Hamdulillah. And it was an amazing experience. Pamela, you've had, you've had, you know, children as young as six years old,

00:03:46 --> 00:04:12

who their eyes were kind of like cut manually by, you know, some doctors, I use the word whichard when I when I was in our head, you mentioned Look, don't use that word, but that's what I that's what it felt like, they actually tried to cut the cataract out mentally wet within them with a knife. And the child had to actually be like, operated on by a surgeon in order to save his eyes. Subhanallah

00:04:14 --> 00:04:48

and it was just it was yeah, it was very, very sad to see children as young as six years old all the way to elderly experience cataract, we were able to hamdulillah save his eye. This child insha Allah insha Allah is able to, you know, grow up work, you know, provide for his family and other things. And that in itself insha Allah to Allah is a form of a sadaqa jariya for for anyone who's donated towards the the I character pool, Mallow Spandana reward or more so it was a was all an all around, you know, an amazing experience Subhanallah

00:04:50 --> 00:04:54

how many how many eye cataracts Do you think we did? I was

00:04:55 --> 00:04:59

asking me yeah, I'm asking you. Why not? We have the local operations.

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

Have you got the

00:05:03 --> 00:05:04


00:05:05 --> 00:05:19

No, I wish I could have been there. I was missing you guys. Yes. Subhanallah we were actually there was a there was a lot of points where we look around with so, you know, if, if your shirt was here, he would do this he would do that it would, you know, subhanAllah was,

00:05:21 --> 00:05:22

you know what it's like, it's like when you have

00:05:24 --> 00:05:36

you know, you know like that those triangles when there's like a missing leg. You know, we said the same thing we said the same thing about you when I brought him on was here. So we eventually we eventually got to get the three musketeers together and

00:05:37 --> 00:05:37


00:05:39 --> 00:05:55

my passport, hopefully we'll be back in this week, I'll have it in hand and then we can go wherever we need to go in sha Allah, Allah Insha Allah, Allah Allah, we will be an amazing experience in sha Allah like, like before Subhan Allah. But um, yeah, the the icon itself Subhanallah was

00:05:57 --> 00:06:12

it was just it was just phenomenal. Subhanallah the one of the first things we provided them, brother Lucia was was a Quran as well as, as well as lunch. So the first thing that they were able to actually see is the words of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:06:13 --> 00:06:26

And that in itself, insha Allah is the starting of a sort of kajaria for for anyone who wanted to assist with the eye, cataract as well, as well as you know, enhancing their life as well.

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

It's costing $110. Australian, which is it's been out for us. I think it's a bit cheaper in the US in terms of I think their currency is higher than ours. For some small horses for labor so small, to change someone's life forever. That's a an amazing things. Pamela, like, if you if you imagine there was there was an old lady, I think she was she was speaking, just speaking to me in the in the think you've got your own story as well to toe with a certain sister, which I'll leave that story to you. But you've had, you've had women that are old, old women that have never seen their grandchildren before. And they've had cataract for 510 15 years, wow.

00:07:08 --> 00:07:45

by them being able to actually see, you know, their grandchild to walk without an aid. They're able to do things without you know, someone holding their hand. You know, it's, it gets very emotional sometimes as well. It's not only for them, but also for yourself, because these little these little things that you don't actually think about because Hamdulillah, Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us with eyes. We don't to us, it's second nature, because we don't know anything different. unless we've actually experienced some sort of, you know, issues with our eyes or any other form of an ability to perform daily tasks or anything like that.

00:07:46 --> 00:08:13

Subhanallah like these sort of things, if you don't think about it, just you know, you've been able to, for example, go to the kitchen to get a snack or the fridge. That in itself is a blessing because you don't have to rely on the next person to get it for us and Allah Subhan Allah, but then again, people that are blind as we all know, brother will have so he says it's all normal for him, even though he can't say he's been blind. I think all his life. Yeah, he was born without eyes.

00:08:15 --> 00:08:22

So he's able to adjust. That's from the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. Yes, he took one thing away from but he's happy, he's fine.

00:08:23 --> 00:08:27

This one thing I want to share with the you mentioned the sister that I spoke to

00:08:29 --> 00:09:05

the 22 year old sister, imagine this right? Young, you think about she's got everything going for herself. She had cataracts in both eyes. So she was bilateral. We had the opposite of her eyes. Unfortunately, her husband left her. Okay, because she was blind, then her family rejected her. So literally due to this illness, or this, this, this this problem that she had, everyone had rejected her. So imagine now her getting these getting her eyes operated on, we're hoping that her family will accept the back. And we're hoping that her husband or ex husband, whether he did a divorce or just left to Allah wondering which one was, but we're hoping that, you know, her life can go back to

00:09:05 --> 00:09:12

normal. And it's just in terms of just finish this family budget and mother, father, brother, sister, everyone rejecting and walking away.

00:09:14 --> 00:09:48

Unfortunately, well, that's part of, you know, part of what we noticed, especially being born and raised most of us who grew up in a first first world country, we see these, you know, small things is so trivial. Whereas, oh, you know, in a lot of places in the world, these things we see is kind of like a trivial necessity of life or an amazing luxury to some people, you know, I mean, like, I remember I went one place and they, you know, like, these kids have never even like seen iPhones and stuff like that. And they're just like, why, you know, I mean, like, this is just for us. It's an everyday necessity. We can't live without it. We can't go five minutes without it, you know, and we

00:09:48 --> 00:09:59

forget how ungrateful we are for some of those small things. Yes, it's just it's, you know, almost feels like they they felt like a burden.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:07

To Life at one point of their life or if they didn't feel it the whole way through until the surgery Subhan Allah subhanaw It's just,

00:10:08 --> 00:10:14

it's, it's unexplainable until you actually see it, like, we took one, we took an ambassador with us.

00:10:16 --> 00:10:25

And he saw it for himself. As much as we educate him prior to the operation itself, he didn't actually understand the,

00:10:27 --> 00:11:03

you know, the, you know, the miracle that Allah subhanaw taala has has, you know, given given the gift back off site to somebody, how much effect that will actually give on that person's hand a lot. The other thing is like the the surgeon actually spoke to me he said, Look, we got so many people like in Africa and countries like this, due to the weather due to the dust due to injuries due to so many elements that you know, they generally don't wear sunglasses and other things. This effect is so there's so many people that need the simple operation to get this Ibex Carmen is begging basically saying please, please continue to do more. We were actually supposed to go to Ethiopia and

00:11:03 --> 00:11:05

Niger, but the Ethiopian

00:11:07 --> 00:11:17

fell through. Yeah, that's right. So inshallah we have to resume that sooner than later. The other issue that we we've realized is there needs to be a lot of awareness with preventative care

00:11:18 --> 00:11:26

in those countries, because of as you mentioned, the dust you know, in the sun and other things. So, something as simple as sunglasses,

00:11:27 --> 00:11:36

you know, to prevent cataracts and prevent you know, I I issues and things like that, that is that is a task in itself. SubhanAllah.

00:11:40 --> 00:11:46

But, yeah, hamdulillah it was, it was actually an overall good experience from the

00:11:48 --> 00:12:01

Hamdulillah we also fundraise during that time, and we were able to cover just over 1143 eyes in sha Allah, so that that that in itself and humbly Allah

00:12:02 --> 00:12:05

insha Allah will be able to assist

00:12:06 --> 00:12:09

you know, that many people Inshallah, inshallah.

00:12:11 --> 00:12:23

Inshallah Tada with regards to Quran itself, brother Bucha Alhamdulillah we we found that a very successful campaign hamdulillah with with your help as well malice, Fanta reward you

00:12:24 --> 00:12:26

Hamdulillah we were able to carry out

00:12:28 --> 00:12:36

could have been in numerous countries, you have the likes of Sri Lanka, Nyjah, India, Bangladesh, the Rohingya refugees,

00:12:37 --> 00:12:44

Yemen, Lebanon, the Palestinian and Syrian refugees, as well as Gaza Hamdulillah

00:12:45 --> 00:12:48

we were able to we had a

00:12:50 --> 00:13:21

we call it a trailer package, we were able to we will offer you the people's caravan, the eight clothes as well as breaking the fast of 30 people on the day of alpha income that we found that a very successful campaign handler so instead of people just carrying out their caravan they were able to as a saying goes kill two birds with one stone but in this case three birds with one stone handler so it was actually really really good. Initially we had a lot of landmines. Um, then how about yourself? Did you find anything?

00:13:23 --> 00:13:59

That did be what was what was the feedback like from your side of things as well and Charlotte? Yeah, I haven't. I think the core banking campaign went really, really well this year. And Sharma hooter, Anna we can only do better next year. That's the goal is that we, we try to do so exceedingly better each and every year that we go this you know, we have a campaign, we learn from it, we look at the metrics, we look at the successes, we look at the things we could have done better, and we try to do better. That's the whole point of lsn. Right, of having Sn Sn is always striving for excellence. So I think we did we did good, but I also know what we're capable of doing

00:13:59 --> 00:14:39

and in Shama who to Ana, next year, we will try to try to double it and do it. Because I think we did do really well this year, and we helped a lot of people and handled a lot of people were giving this event meet, because it's, you know, the whole point of that event, is to help those who are in need apart from the side of that we do it for, you know, the following the footsteps of Ibrahim and ASAM you know, where he was willing, you know, his willingness to sacrifice so we remind ourselves of that during Corbin there's always a spiritual element behind eating and giving Audubon but apart from that the people that benefit from it are the poor and the needy so there's there's it's a dual

00:14:39 --> 00:14:40


00:14:42 --> 00:14:59

you know, type of of act where we fulfill our active right to a loss and without and people get helped because of it. Yeah, that's right. That's exactly right. And the other thing as well is that the amount of people that do not eat meat from year to year, just waiting on a lot ha just in order to

00:15:00 --> 00:15:33

consume meat is Subhanallah it's an amazing, amazing thing to, like, you don't actually realize until it actually happens. Yeah. When we take that we take that for granted, right? Yeah, we have meat, especially, especially I know in the I think Lebanese culture is very similar. There's certain Arab cultures like you guys like meat is three times a day. You know, I mean, like, it's just, I remember, I stayed with some Yemeni brothers during when Ramadan in Chicago, when I was doing the calf in the masjid. And it's 430 in the morning, we're having Sahaba and they bring in whole lambs. And, you know, I mean, I'm just like, man, it's way, it's way too early for this, you know, I mean,

00:15:33 --> 00:15:59

like, we take me for granted, whereas in other places in the world, meat is a rarity. And even from the sunnah of our Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he did not have, you know, the opportunity to eat meat that much even though he loved it himself. I think it was a shot of the Allahu Allah said that there would be months and months would go by in their house where a fire was not lit, meaning that no meat was cooked. And they would just literally handing off like bread and date in milk and things of that nature. So we take it for a luxury.

00:16:01 --> 00:16:02

And we probably eat too much meat.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:06

Yeah, no, that's true. I think the red meat,

00:16:08 --> 00:16:09

people tend to

00:16:10 --> 00:16:33

overly consume at some, sometimes sunlight in the actual wisdom, like in our, in our culture here as well, in Australia, and in the Western Hemisphere sort of thing, as you mentioned, like, numerous times a day, as opposed to, you know, a couple of times a year if that for for other countries or other people that were not, that are not privileged to consume it as much panela Mallanna.

00:16:34 --> 00:17:12

Did you have any? I mean, I mean, did you have any experiences yourself like people approaching you about that yourself? All the time, all the time, even in Lebanon, people, basically, that's the wrong word to use, but begging, saying, you know, we need more, a lot of unrest between the people lining up, you know, getting a bit more aggressive and things like that. You're you're starting to notice that. But mind you, oh, we all know, even Western countries now are going backwards. Have heard reports of the US as well, a lot of people suddenly become more homeless. Less money in the pocket. Yeah, it's a huge huge problem here in America. And inflation as has risen to the point

00:17:12 --> 00:17:32

where it's out done wages and homelessness in America is becoming a mega crisis. There's, there's cities in America, I see videos all the time, of like, just you feel like they've turned into like, just desolate, you know, I mean, like, just homeless camps, everywhere, all over the place. And that's, you know, something that the Western world hasn't seen in a long time.

00:17:34 --> 00:17:58

Definitely. Australia, we know for a fact look, the last year or so we're starting to see a lot of this happening as well. Interest rates going up, a lot of people can't afford rent, like rent has gone crazy, basic unit, sorry, house could go anywhere from 700 to 850. Just for basic place. Something a bit more nicer, you look at it about 1000 1100. And going up, that's a way just, yeah, it's everywhere. It's everywhere. It's happening. And

00:18:00 --> 00:18:36

it's so so we're going to see more need. In especially in the coming, I would say at least next coming couple of years, there's going to be a greater need for the services that we offer, not only globally, but we're going to start having to see these projects be enacted locally, you know, here in the United States, and in Australia and other places like their I drive by there's a place that I go, I where I have to drive this little country road, I think I took you down a couple of times I bought it and there's a food bank there. And I drove I think it was a couple of Saturdays ago, I was driving by there. And that's when they're open, they have a food bank. And the amount of line of

00:18:36 --> 00:19:01

people that I saw at a food bank, think people that you would think you know, the way they're dressed and the kind of cars are driving you and you would think like these people don't need you don't need anything but in reality, you know, like, they're probably just barely making enough money just to pay their bills, pay their mortgage, keep the lights on, they don't they don't have there's nothing left over or they're paying for medicine, or insurance. And they're having to choose between that and eating. So they're ending up at food banks. Yes.

00:19:02 --> 00:19:26

I think it's a growing epidemic, that we don't actually, we don't realize because it's slipping under the radar. But I guess look, organizations or charity organizations need to take this on board. What's the next steps when people can't donate? What do we do as organizations to keep out you know, we're moving forward and to help the people. So they're things we'd have to deeply think about and then move forward with the Jama sham

00:19:28 --> 00:19:40

with with the Quran itself, we we had on the Day of Arafah. handler, we broke the fast of the people who fasted on a day of rfl Hamdulillah.

00:19:42 --> 00:19:59

Through the generous donors and contributors handler, we worked out that 87,262 People would have benefited from that thought on the day of nearly 90,000 people benefited from everyone who

00:20:00 --> 00:20:32

Who donated to Alessandra foundation that, and I'm just saying that for the audience to understand the impact that you have, because a lot of times, you know, people will, especially in today's in today's world, people will look at, you know, we want to raise these big funds, right? And they'll come to the website and be like, Oh my God, these guys are trying to raise like 70 $80,000 and I barely I'm getting by, never, ever, ever been little, a good deed, never been a little a good deed, even if you give $5 You know, I mean, if you give $1 It is not about the amount. It's about the baraka that Allah subhanho wa Taala puts behind the intended effort, you know, I mean, you can have

00:20:32 --> 00:21:04

and I've seen this many times before, you can have someone give $10,000 to a campaign, and they do so with haughtiness or arrogance. And there's very little Baraka behind that money, you watch it just disappear. And then you have like, four or five sisters who will gather together and come up with a few $100 Scrape between them, and they put it forward and it has such Baraka. So really, it's the intention that's behind it. So never be literally any good deed. If you see us put forward these campaigns and you feel like, you know, I'm struggling myself, one of the best ways to help yourself out of struggles is to give for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah to Anna because it shows gratitude

00:21:04 --> 00:21:08

for what little that you do have and then Allah increases you and blesses you in that.

00:21:09 --> 00:21:28

I just wish I could bring a few of the people that give and they continue to give and Allah just keeps giving him back. I wish, if I can actually really convince the person to come on because there's a few of them or the people and they can tell their own story why they need it. They keep telling me Look, I put this when I was in need and then Allah gave me back. You know, one brother

00:21:30 --> 00:21:39

mentioned he had the last I think $12,000 He gave it off for Allah sake. And next they gave him $120,000 Yeah, so it's something people you can't

00:21:40 --> 00:22:12

Yeah, I remember Shanghai thermal had that one time you saying we were talking about a fundraiser I was doing for Mr. De F and he was like, you can't outgive ALLAH SubhanA wa Tana, you know, I mean, like you are, if you are in competition, to give for the sake of Allah, you are always going to find yourself on the winning side of that scenario because you cannot outgive Allah we know this from the stories of like Abdul Rahman, even if, you know, I mean, if you read the stories of like Abdul Rahman, even alpha and how much he used to sometimes try to avoid getting stuff back he would be like, I could not go anywhere without Allah returning me His favors, you know, I mean, like he would

00:22:12 --> 00:22:15

give away all his wealth many times over and it would all come back to him.

00:22:17 --> 00:22:53

Definitely speaking to one brother after Ramadan because bro you gave that talk or gave certain shots and I got nothing back then I'm thinking you need these people need to really rethink the air that you're breathing the sight that you have the hearing that you have all these blessings doesn't mean well, in terms of physical money only. There's so many different things you don't know what you don't know. That's what I tell somebody you never know what sometimes you given the sake of Allah and you never know what what catastrophe hasn't been diverted from you. Maybe that was in your path. Maybe it was a sickness and illness, a disease something that was coming your way that you now

00:22:53 --> 00:23:25

diverted through the efforts that you've given for Allah Subhana Allah Tiana, you never know what's what's been moved out of your path. Simply forgiving for the sake of Allah doesn't always mean okay, I'm gonna write $1,000 Check today I must sit at home and wait for the $10,000 check to show up in the mail. It's not it's not always the way it works. But we do know that the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that he would only take an oath about a few things relating to this world and one of them was man, Apostle Manuel Masada you cannot decrease your wealth and giving charity, he swore by it. He said, I will take an oath, that you cannot decrease your wealth and giving for the sake of

00:23:25 --> 00:23:38

Allah subhanaw taala. But that is if you give it sincerely, if you give it sincerely, you look at it as a transaction, like, Oh, I'm just gonna, I'm gonna give just to make more, you might not see the same results, but give us solely for the sake of Allah and watch what happens to your life.

00:23:41 --> 00:24:19

I think it comes down to also the ones in 10. Let's say rule number one sort of thing. So of course, I forget the hereafter when we're working in dunya. But really, it's all for the hereafter. Regardless whether this is me personally, without getting this done yet or not thinking about the higher levels and gender, you might even get the reward in this life and they'd be nothing for you in the next life if the intention is wrong. In MLR, MLO millenia, everything is based on corners and intention. That's it on the Day of Judgment, Allah will only judge our actions based on what they were intended for. That's it. That's great. That's great. It's fun. 100 I like that. Yeah. So with

00:24:19 --> 00:24:24

going back to Dave rfl Hamdulillah we found that an amazing initiative and hamdulillah

00:24:26 --> 00:24:30

so the you know, the people you know, there are stories out there that people that

00:24:31 --> 00:24:40

are forced to fast or is that the right arm if that's the right word to say, but they don't actually have any food to break their fast or to

00:24:41 --> 00:24:54

or to eat, like their normal their daily meals and things like that. So they're forced to fast in saying that as well. So the the day of our effort would have assisted the likes of those sort of people in,

00:24:55 --> 00:24:59

in Lebanon that we that we assist Al Hamdulillah we

00:25:00 --> 00:25:23

not only provided staple food to areas that we can actually provide when they would actually cook at home the food, we also provided hot meals to other areas that did not have the amenities to actually cook any food and things like that. So we try to eat on both ends. So that way we could try to maximize the amount of food that we can actually break people's fast with on the day thought of it. And

00:25:26 --> 00:25:29

we found that a successful initiative will Hamdulillah.

00:25:33 --> 00:25:48

So what is it, what is coming, it is coming. And that's the day of our show, which we'll get to in a moment. But I just wanted I wanted to bring up when we went to Africa, and we gave her eight close to children. And it was in what 50 degree Hey,

00:25:50 --> 00:26:15

handle that we were able to we we raised enough to provide 2171 clothes to children. handler. When we went to Africa, it was like 50 degree hate would you say was hot. It was a very hot day. It was a very, very hot day that they had a lot. And there wasn't that many children that we're trying to get through at the same time. And

00:26:16 --> 00:26:21

having that was was a successful day. I'd say we had our brother Steve with us.

00:26:23 --> 00:26:28

I think it's first time he could handle the site and did I just the emotions running through his veins and everything.

00:26:29 --> 00:26:47

Like I noticed he had just walked away. He said can't deal with this. I think the emotions the hate. So he went into the Masjid. To look for some more. Pamela, what does he do? Or what is the I followed him just to make sure he's okay. So I saw his head pop out the window. Then he came out it looks at me as

00:26:49 --> 00:26:56

a he gets to me. Where's the water? He started freaking out. He thinks it's easy just to get water. We drove for two and a half hours down.

00:26:58 --> 00:27:03

There's no corner shops. It's like we have to deal with this. Look at the people that's

00:27:05 --> 00:27:25

so again, Western people going in just just turn on. Promotions. Yeah. First, we can just go to off as simple as that. Yeah, yeah, there's no taps of water or anything like that. Even if we hadn't got water from like a water world if there was a water well around, I don't think he would have the water would have been centered in other things.

00:27:26 --> 00:27:29

Look at what we're living through compared to what they're living through.

00:27:31 --> 00:27:53

But we are we are in the last couple of days of the ledger, right? Like, literally last couple of days of the Islamic year. 1444. Right. 1444. Very last. So we have the month of Muharram approaching, which is an auspicious month, right? Like, this is one of the this is one of the holy months, this isn't one of the months that ALLAH SubhanA with Allah deemed to be

00:27:55 --> 00:27:58

holy. So what are we doing in the month of Muharram?

00:28:01 --> 00:28:30

Alhamdulillah we, we found that they've had a very successful initiative, as I was just mentioning before. So we wanted to do a similar initiative for the day of our show that we did started last year as well. Yeah, that's right. That's right. But this year, we wanted, we wanted to do things a little different and go bigger, as you mentioned before you shall you know, every year we try to improve ourselves, and aim higher and do better in sha Allah. And obviously, this is one of the years that we strive to do that.

00:28:32 --> 00:29:11

But you might you might have some people that are watching, they have no idea what the data shows. Yeah, that's right. Like the confusion people said, What's this a I've never heard of it. Like, even through like us growing up, we knew better. This unfortunately, this next generation is popping up. Whether it's these 32nd Actually now on YouTube, sorry, Facebook assigned to a 15 second clips. So your education of Islamic knowledge can come from these little, you know, rules and stories and stuff like that. Yeah. So people are asking what what do you say? Are you talking about your microphone, like now that there's another day that we do also gain so many rewards by getting you

00:29:11 --> 00:29:15

know, your previous since leaving by just watching that one day?

00:29:16 --> 00:29:19

So what is who would like to like you to mention

00:29:21 --> 00:29:24

I was gonna ask you guys, especially the host.

00:29:25 --> 00:29:33

Well, what it is, is Musa alayhis salam, he freed the people of Israel, children of Israel, from Pharaoh.

00:29:35 --> 00:29:35


00:29:37 --> 00:30:00

Hamdulillah we, we celebrate that by fasting not only one day, but the two days of our Shabbat, so the mind and the 10th or the 10th and the 11th. So basically when the prophets of salaam came into Medina, he noticed that the local Jewish people that were there were actually fasted on that day. He mentioned What's this? And they said to me, this is the this is a great day. This is

00:30:00 --> 00:30:20

is the day that Allah Allah subhanaw taala saved the bunnies while the children of Israel from Pharaoh. So they fasted. And Musa alayhis salam also faster that day. So he said anywhere closer to them than Musa as the were closer to most of them them. So he chose to fast that they said if I was to live another year, yeah, I would add one day which meaning the night of

00:30:22 --> 00:30:24

its work so we

00:30:25 --> 00:30:27

we fast the ninth and the 10th.

00:30:29 --> 00:30:51

Sets, it's one day, it's one day before and on the day and the one on the day and the day after. If there's if the lip color, so just keep it in terms of even if someone just fast on that day, even if it's more recommended this fast on the day of Ashura, and then there's some difference of opinion about day before day after but and they've been some of the day before and

00:30:52 --> 00:30:55

the ninth and the 11th with us.

00:30:56 --> 00:31:10

Alright, that's fair enough. Now we have an estimated date, because as you mentioned, before you share is that we're still in the ledger. So we haven't actually entered Muharram to know the exact but we have an estimated date of next Thursday and next Friday.

00:31:11 --> 00:31:27

The 27th and 28th. Yeah, July, that's what is estimated depending on whether they'll hit j goes 29 days. Correct? That's right. So depending on on means fighting each other and on those two days, we intend to break the fast

00:31:28 --> 00:31:33

of the fast thing on over those two days on the Thursday and on how many people are we shooting for

00:31:34 --> 00:31:49

we're trying to shoot for 100,000 people insha Allah but unfortunately, due to the lack of knowledge, I don't think people understand the reward. Like again, going back to the point of breaking the fast or somebody knowing that you know, if you give in we're talking about $80 to feed how many 30

00:31:51 --> 00:31:55

You're gonna get the reward of these 30 people of their fast let's just say

00:31:56 --> 00:32:09

you know remind you the sickness laziness work whatever it may be, you know, but you intend to give out you're gonna get the reward and that's the reward and that's at Australian so that's even even a cheaper pricing United States and even cheaper in the United Kingdom.

00:32:11 --> 00:32:21

That's right, that's roughly works out to be about one $50 about $50 us and maybe about 35 I don't remember the exact ratio now but maybe about 35 pounds something like that.

00:32:22 --> 00:32:55

And to be honest with going into countries and when they say that we remember them and this is the message that we always give inshallah one day when you're with us and you know you present a talk like that to the people you meet when they look at you like when we're in Niger and I was talking to them and I'm saying to the people look there's no difference doesn't matter we need my skin is white yours is black whatever it is we're one when uma you know we're one nation there's no difference Pamela and the eyes just open up and you see the smiles automatically in the come on the faces and the need they feel that love because we've come all this way we don't know you but we're hoping you

00:32:56 --> 00:33:04

know this is what it is us we're one OMA We held it in the head the human to come home with and widen this on your almost one arm that's it we are one nation we are one people

00:33:05 --> 00:33:08

I think the other the other issue is as well is that

00:33:10 --> 00:33:15

people or poor people are generally forgotten about straight after Corbin

00:33:16 --> 00:33:37

and and they don't see us they will see a lot of us again till winter till it gets cold. Yeah, that's right. Or until Ramadan. Basically if if there's no depends on the country because yeah, like Africa, it's not cold this yeah, there's no wait. Yeah, we don't see them again to Ramadan. Yeah, that's right. That's right. So, so as providing them with, you know,

00:33:39 --> 00:33:59

breaking their fast or meals or things like that does actually alleviate some sort of suffering from them. Because some people you know, live from meal to meal or day to day work, trying to work out how to, you know, where their next meal is coming from and things like that. And, you know, for as you mentioned, the ones that are fasting or the ones that are not fasting,

00:34:01 --> 00:34:05

you know, it would does take a lot of pressure off them as well.

00:34:07 --> 00:34:22

So that's, that's, it's, it's actually an A an initiative that we should all insha Allah put our hands to, it's $80 breakfast of 30 people in sha Allah. So where where do they need to go to help?

00:34:23 --> 00:34:59

Yeah, we we, they can make a donation through a law center over a year and they can make a donation accordingly. Inshallah, as you made mentioned before, it's only $80 Australian which is about $50 American or 35 pounds I think I believe you made mention Yeah, and I put the link as well on my twitter there's the link is on my Twitter the link is on my Instagram post that link is on my facebook so you can find the direct links inshallah no worries inshallah Zack locker for that. And, and the good thing is, is that inshallah we want to provide

00:35:00 --> 00:35:03

Everybody with nourishing meals as we generally do,

00:35:04 --> 00:35:11

to not only break the fast but also obviously provide them with healthy food for them to be able to,

00:35:12 --> 00:35:12

you know,

00:35:13 --> 00:35:18

nourish themselves, if that's the right word to use insha Allah Allah.

00:35:20 --> 00:35:31

So this is over two days. So it's not only the one day, we want to obviously break the fast over two days over the Thursday estimated, and the ninth and 10th of Muharram insha Allah.

00:35:32 --> 00:36:10

So for those of you who want to participate in that we literally only like a week away a little bit over a week away. Please make sure you go to the links, go to lsn that org.au and find the click on the fundraisers link you'll see you'll see the link for a shorter there or you can also go to my social medias, I'm sure they're probably on the Allison foundation social medias as well. So just go to one of our social medias and find the link and donate right away. So that we can do this for literally, you can feed 30 people for at Australian 50 around 50 US and around 30 I mean UK that's like a pound a person you know, I mean are less than $2 a person in the United States, you can feed

00:36:10 --> 00:36:40

30 people on this auspicious day and this is an auspicious day it is a day where you can get the sins forgiven for for the following year. Like that's, that's a lot for most of us. We could use it you know, I mean most of us I'm speaking for myself like we can use this forgiveness of the sins and maybe you're a person who might not as I've watched metal saying maybe you might not be able to fast maybe you might not be able to do this to feed another person the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said whoever breaks the fast have a fasting person it is though they fasted themselves you know, so this is something that you can gain the reward inshallah.

00:36:42 --> 00:36:51

Inshallah. Now, are you would you be in a country during this time? Or would you be here in Australia or in Sri Lanka

00:36:53 --> 00:37:05

for like, it's gonna be nice and hot inshallah I was wishing, hoping that I could come with you on this one. For those of you in the States, you know how the passport issue is right now. Hopefully I'll have it back very soon. Next trip, I will be on it in Chalong Thailand, no matter where it's at?

00:37:06 --> 00:37:15

Is it if it's cooler than that'll be even better, but we'll go wherever we go. Inshallah, as you can see from this little thing, right now, it's it's eight o'clock at night, and it's still 40 degrees outside?

00:37:17 --> 00:37:49

Well, so it's, yeah, Texas is heating up at the moment. But um, what is it that we have, that we want to do going forward is improve every aspect of what do we do? Right? That is the whole function behind RSN Foundation is to get better with each and every campaign. But we can't do that. Without the support of the people like the people watching all of the donors, all the people who give those are the people who make what we do possible, right. Like, we can't do that without them. Like we are literally,

00:37:51 --> 00:38:27

you know, at the behest of people who want to give so we want to thank everyone who's given to the project who gave during Ramadan, who gave during quarter Ben, who have given during this Oh, shoot, I can assure a campaign Stay tuned for our upcoming campaigns or emergency appeals winter appeal. Because we plan to in Shama hooter, Anna, you know, get better and better with each one. Chela Inshallah, tada, well, if it wasn't, if it's not for their support, we wouldn't be able to do what we were doing. Well, that's fantastic, reward them, each and every one of them spamela And no matter what they don't, whether it's you know, $1 or, or $100 or $1,000

00:38:28 --> 00:38:52

You know, every little bit counts. You know, as I say, mountains are made out of pebbles, so, no matter how much they give, it's, it's assisting no matter what they do, may Allah spent over 100% and we have to combat gratitude people many logical one Lilash got a NAS with us who he was not thankful to the people is not thankful to Allah, you know, so we have to, you know, be grateful for the people who want to support and continue to allow us to do what it is that we do.

00:38:54 --> 00:39:19
