See what we get, when I don't see things doing half I can't do anything halfway. If I'm going to put my mind and an effort and energy into something, I'm going to give it 100%
I'm going to give it 100% We're sick, we keep going, we're tired, we keep going you know and you don't feel like it, you keep going. This is what we do. You got to tell yourself if you're after something and you're passionate about something, then you have to wake up in the morning. And you know, as soon as your alarm goes off, it goes off in the morning if you're tired, if you're not feeling it if you know there's so many excuses, you can always come up with an excuse to not get up and get at it. But you just have to tell yourself this is what we do now. That's it that that that is that is the model that you keep having to respond to yourself and say when you wake up in the
morning this is what we do now. This is what we do now.
We get up at this time and we and we get at it and we get at it with 110% That is that is that is the legacy I'm trying to leave for my children so they can see that work ethic in their father that when it's time to get up he gets up if he's not feeling well he gets up I mean there's we always learn to take time for ourselves if you're if you're too unwell like this whole weekend I did not get out of bed I was in you know either in the bed or in my office trying to stay stay you know stay moving around and or I was laying on the couch I laid on the couch last night and watch the bills and chiefs football game the divisional playoff game man that game that was a very good game even
though I was feeling like absolute
dog water I was feeling like absolute doo doo. I watched that game and it was a very very good game went down to the wire if and if you watch the bills chiefs game last night you'll know
but that's the legacy I want to leave is that you know I if I put my mind to something I go after and if I fail at something if I fail at something it's not because I didn't put an effort mo use if I didn't you come to Greenland last year for your ship in the UK. I didn't go to Birmingham that's why
you know, if I fail at something, I want to make sure that it's not because I didn't put the effort in
if I didn't
if I fail at something, it's because not going to be because I didn't put the effort in that's one thing that I want to make sure of myself is that if something doesn't work that I try if I have a project that doesn't work, I sure as hell don't want it to be to be because I didn't put the work in. So we get up and we put the work in sha Allah to Allah
I'll answer some questions here in a moment because we don't even think we're gonna play game two there's gonna be just just just kicking it
so if you if you if you see a quote if you if if I miss your question by the time I've come around to it, then forgive me
the title of my YouTube stream today what did I make the title of it? I'm tired of this and come click the Find out why it was a bit click Beatty, but I'm dead serious.
Stupid interview. Thank you much for the badge.
So I'm gonna keep drinking this. This is a good remedy if you're not feeling well.
Water, lemon, honey, black seed ginger, put it in some water and drink it throughout the day.
Mm hmm. Oh,
and I talked about that, yeah, I came will is the most important thing. And I talked about that. And I put that on my clip on my Instagram a couple of days ago, you know that that the war, the war that you have to worry about in your life. And that's not what I'm talking about. I'm tired of this, we'll get to that in just Just a minute. Just Just stay right there
is that the word you have to worry about winning, is the war in your brain is the war in your head, the war in your mind, that is the biggest battlefield you're ever going to face in your life is having to overcome your own doubts. Having to overcome your own worries, your own stresses, your own doubts, your own
your own hypocrisy, you know,
that's, that's where the biggest biggest struggles of your life are going to take place. And if you lose those, you lose everything you lose the will even to keep going. But if you can win that battle, if you can overcome that darkness, if you can overcome the stress, if you can overcome the anxiety, if you can overcome the self doubt, if you can overcome the grief, if you can overcome the sadness, if you can overcome that, that fear and apprehension of of going after something, or if you can overcome the laziness, if you can overcome all of that, you can win
this this this this battle of life, you can win this battle of faith, you can, you can realistically win. Because you will have the tools that will take the obstacles will be something that shuts you down, you will overcome them you will see up obstacles as opportunities, you'll see fail uses lessons, you'll see difficulty as, as a stepping stone to the next plateau, you'll see things completely different in perception is so important. So, perception is, is is is so important to every aspect of your life. I mean, you can
you can face situations and either fail them or be successful at them completely based on your perception of the situation and the way you look at it and the mentality that you have. So winning that war within your head. That is going to be your every day battle and you're going to have to do battle there, you're going to have to strap up, you're going to have to suit up, you're going to have to boot up and you're going to have to get at it. That's just the only way.
The only way you're going to get through that is you're going to have to suit up and boot up and put into work after Thank you very much for the badge you only lose the war in your head when you give up Red Robin 100% about 100% We don't do Twitch anymore Twitch is done I'm the only way you will see bro usual back on Twitch is if YouTube bans me which I'm that's why I have not deleted my twitch because you can get banned from anywhere today for any reason. That is the other strangeness of the world that we live in today.
But there's no real secret pill there's no there's no secret formula for being successful other than putting in work that you're not going to want to put in. Nobody wakes up every morning. No I mean, excuse me, nobody even successful people don't wake up in the morning and say, Wow,
amazing I get to go work mind behind to the bone today I'm going to be dead tired, I'm going to be hurting, I'm going to be struggling. But men this is amazing. People might try to make themselves say that but nobody thinks that man come on seriously. All of us would love to be able to just get up and live a life of leisure and chill and hang around and do nothing
you know and just do whatever it is that we wanted to do. But that's not the reality for 99.8% of the people on the planet Earth. So you know it's up to you what type of attitude you get up in the morning and go at your daily grind out or whatever it is you want to become a successful at Hector Cruz another one of our members on YouTube salaam aleikum, Muslim, I'm proud of number one of our members on YouTube. So I'm going to come help as well. Thank you very much Alex for buying another badge, guys, for YouTube. I have I have some amazing member stuff that I'm working on that I'm thinking about doing just for you guys on YouTube who have become members
so just be patient with your brother and I will be announcing those as soon as I get them all panned out and figured out in sha Allah I want to make sure that those of you who subscribe as a member on YouTube and pay some of your good hard earned money to support your brother You sure in what he's trying to do over here I'm going to make sure that you are acknowledged for that I'm going to make sure that you are acknowledged for that
and then also make sure that you are rewarded for it and shot at low tide and it makes you feel like you know it's worth your your your effort that you put in
so you know that was that was that was not what I was planning to talk about we just kind of went on that tangent of you know, like winning that war within your mind because yes, I feel terrible you know, I mean like I'm sick man is sick and people get sick it's part of it and traveling all that time throughout London this and that and the other and it was cold and wet then I came back to negative 35 here got something but you still get up and you still go at you know you still got to go at it you know it's
you got to push through you know you got to learn to take time for your body when you need to and take rest and take I'm a big proponent on taking breaks when you feel like you need to but I'm also you know not going to use that as an excuse every single day and and and use it to become derelict in my duties
All right. Now how is how are you guys doing? That's what I want to know like how was it How was everyone on your screen before going on the whole rant of what I'm tired of

So we'll see hopefully, hopefully later on the life I'll get to the point where I'm able to do that in sha Allah

May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant or Shiva May Allah grant or Shiva inshallah monatomic it or hold it for her beneath it, Donna.
One thing that I'm tired of, I've been tired of this for a long time, but it's just becoming more and more prevalent in the in the,
in the Muslim scene, you know, the Muslim scene.
And one of the things I've come very tired of is our
I need to try to find a friend find a way to phrase this will tonight insult a whole bunch of people
I'm tired of our
constant need our constant desire
feel like that we have to police everybody and everything
and be so negative to one another. And be so yes, Ginola condescending to one another condescending that's it's a very good word I appreciate that Jen doula sums up.
A lot of them, I'm tired of our condescension towards one another,
and our unrealistic ideal
that everyone has to be exactly the same. There it is, in our unrealistic ideal, that everyone has to be exactly the same. And this judgmental attitude that it's either this way, or it's no way whatsoever.
we have this ideal, especially in the online space, and in the online sphere,
that in order to be a part of the quote, unquote, Muslim scene, and Muslim community, quote, unquote,
that you must and the funny thing is, this is these this is usually coming from people or groups of people that are not like this themselves. They're not like this themselves. But
I digress. I digress. But this
will record that resume?
That's what I'm tired of this condescension that we find amongst the Ummah in the way that we deal with one another this, this this idea of it's either like this or it's nothing at all. Either you're like this, or we extro Kate you extricate was, I mean, yeah. Is that the word extricate you from from from this sphere in the community and this cliquish mentality that we have?
You know, this is there's this idea that floats around, and I see it. And even though I'm a person who has been on social media since day one, I see the value that it can have, if used correctly.
In the double edged sword it can be but you know, in online spaces, so I'm watching and I'm seeing the trends that I'm seeing what happens and how we do just because the nature of what I do. And it's this idea that
you must be like a shining example of the companions, which I agree we ascribe to that they are leaders we try and we put our efforts and and ideals into trying to be like the best generation we try to be like, the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, in following sunnah in be like, you know the companion to the best of us. But it's as if, okay, if you are not like that.
And we find some flaws and faults in you that are not like that, then you're no longer invited to the club. You're no longer in vited to the club.
It's like this level of perfection that we put upon others that we don't put upon ourselves. That drives me absolutely insane.
And the fact that we feel like we are charged with the duty
and we've been pinned like a sheriff you know, like the local if you ever watch a while a Western, you know, like the wild west they got to share for the town like we've we've become self appointed sheriff of everything we come across on the internet that we're so ready to offer unsolicited advice, unsolicited advice in the form of Naseeha unsolicited advice in the form of Naseeha.
To everyone that we come across, and
then we think that nobody is good enough to be in that little elitist group called the Muslim scene, or even worse, so in the Dow was seen this cookie cutter mentality, that you must be exactly like this. If you are a brother, you must look exactly like this. You must talk exactly like this. You must quote exactly like this. You must behave exactly like this. Or you're not part of this.
For sisters, you must same thing, look, act to walk tall, do all of these things in a certain cookie cutter fashion, or you can't be part of this whole elite group, you're not one of the beavers, you're not one of the believers.
Those people must have all collectively lost their damn minds.
And I have no qualms about saying that. If you think that is the way you're going to bring about change in our in our Oma.
If that's the way you think that you are going to cause people to become closer to the One who created them, and a more integral part of the Muslim community,
then you've lost your mind.
You've lost your mind. That's not how the world works.
People are unique, people are different. People are
not always what they seem to be, we'd love to be able to say this now. Now this is something
that irks me to my core is that we will use the excuse, I'm going to get into a few things. We're going to break some of these down section by section we're renting today when I don't feel good I rent.
Now you will see people say that use the words that we drive, you know, we we judge based on what's apparent, right. But then you have also people will tell you, everything is not how it seems to be like when they're trying to tear a another brother or another sister down.
They will say, Oh, you know, maybe they look like this online or like this. But everything is not what it seems to be
trying to trying to allude that this person might not be as good as they look like on on social media and on the internet.
Which is true. That's stupid to anybody who thinks that people are exactly who they seem to be on the internet, then then you are you are not a sane individual. Let me tell you, you, you need to really put unplug for a little while and come join the real world and touch on some grass and rocks and other things out there.
But then, on the flip side, if there is someone who does not seem to be as pious or seem to be, as you know, connected to their Creator, as other people might be, they won't use the same excuse. Well,
things are not always as they seem to be.
Do you get what I'm saying? That there might be people out there whom you would not look at and think are good people, you might not look at them and think this is somebody who gives a lot of charity, or somebody who might be connected to their Lord. And frankly, I'm a label or you know, someone who might be
doing things that are good behind closed doors or outside of the eyes of average people.
But you look at them from their outward appearance and automatically claimed they are not one of the believers.
It's just stupid. This is really stupid. You know,
this whole cliquish mentality that we have created in the Muslim community is going to be our undoing. At some point, if we don't learn to wake up a little bit, is
we are responsible, let me tell you who you're responsible for. And then we'll talk about how it's disguised as as Naseeha.
Do you know who you're responsible for in this life, you're responsible for you? You, you're responsible for you. That's the person that you're responsible for. The person that was created with you, the person who will die is you and go into the ground by yourself and be judged. So you're responsible for you.
Other people, other people are responsible for themselves. It's the self accounting and self awareness that we need to become way more in tune with and realizing that nobody's perfect. Everybody has the things to dealing with everybody has their flaws. Everybody has their sins. Everybody has their, you know, their, their their little bits of hypocrisy here in there that they have going on that they're struggling with. Everybody's got something. Everybody's got something I do not care who you are. I don't care who you are, you've got something.
And we need to deal with each other based on on on that understanding. You know, this, this whole judgmental sphere and attitude and this holier than thou in this sitting on a high horse and labeling people with this cookie cutter mentality that I get to choose whether you're a believer, or not a de vivre. It's a whole bunch of bananas nonsense. It's bananas nonsense.
The thing that is going to save you in this world is telehealth.
belief in Allah you know what makes you a believer.
What makes you a believer is not your soul but you're a buyer. I
mean to say some things that boy, hopefully I don't get to cancel today
but you're sober by I don't make up for I'm sorry to tell you, your beard or your hijab don't make you IBD ever. You understand me, your ability to quote with firsthand don't make you a believer. Your ability, you know, to to walk a certain way and and carry yourself in a certain manner does not make you a believer does not make you a believer. What makes you I believe are is to heathen Allah subhanho wa Taala
A believer is someone who believes a man in the Oneness of Allah Jalla wa Ala, someone who says let the halal Allah, Muhammad Allah rasool Allah, that's a believer, that is a believer.
Everything else after that is a different story. But that makes that person a believer.
And they are a body of the community of believers, whether you want to invite them into the club or not, because there's not no damn body on this earth that made you the judge, jury and executioner and the doorman and the one holding the list deciding who gets to be in the club of believers or not.
That's not you, anyone who believes in the creator with no partner with no partner.
That person is a believer and ALLAH SubhanA Hutan and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that anyone who has faith
in Allah Alone, even if that faith is so small, that it's the size of a mustard seed, the smallest of all seeds, that person will be a person of paradise. That person will be a person of paradise.
Flat out that's it. That's it. Now, just like people, let's take religion out of the picture for a moment. I'm hopefully I'm going to make some sense about this. Or I might just ramble and confuse everybody, including myself. Because trust me, I've been thinking about this. And I've mentioned it in little ways here and there and things I've tried to say and do but you know,
I'm trying to trying to get it out the best way that I can.
Just like people,
everywhere one is different. No two people are exactly the same. And that is a beautiful thing. This is a beautiful thing. Allah subhana wa Tada says, I created you in nations and tribes and races and colors and languages and all of those differences, so that you could know one another not so that you could despise one another. So take religion out of it for a moment just look at human beings, how different we are, how uniquely different we are. Allah created us that way.
Every single one of us uniquely different.
Now, you tell me
as a Muslim, and I learned this as a revert to this is something that becomes starkly clear to revert are people who converted to the religion of Islam converts.
You tell me now that I incorporate Islam and Islam into my life, I must now be exactly like every other Muslim.
Please explain this to me.
Please explain this to me.
That Allah created us all unique, in order that we become all exactly the same.
It makes zero sense.
You can still be who you are, as a human being, as as, as an American, as a, as a an Arab, as someone from the subcontinent who might be they see as, as a Nordic as a Native American, as a Hispanic, as an African and all of the differences that are combined within that and still be a believer following the Sunnah of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam.
I have no doubt about this fact. I have no doubt about this fact. And that is a beautiful thing about the deen of Allah.
And unfortunately, we've turned it into a cookie cookie cutter, cookie, cookie cutter factory. There we go. Man, the tongue twisters we turned into a cookie cutter factory where if you're a Muslim, and you want to be accepted into the the, the elite lounge of believers
You must look exactly like this, you must walk exactly like this. You must talk exactly. You gotta look like just about every other brother who just took a shot and he's out of the masjid, or out of the masjid white thought beard goofy, this is not in the other in sister black Obi and Javi you know, the whole nine yards and that's it. When you open your mouth if it's not about the vicar of Allah subhanho wa taala. And if it's not about the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you're a hypocrite. And you've fallen off the religion
grow up, grow up, this is not a reality that is sustainable by any very few human beings on the face of this planet, where people do
are human beings to Yes, we are muslims first.
We are Muslims first 100% We give our our our our a badger to Allah subhanho wa Taala pray five times a day, fast the month of Ramadan. You know, we tried to do good deeds, we try to avoid bad deeds and give charity that's, that's almost every single Muslim out there who practices their faith. We all this is what we do. We all do this. But then we all also are individualistic human beings, with our own hobbies, our own likes our own opinions on certain matters our own, you know,
you know our own way that we see things, our own nuances, our own take on situations, and that's fine. And that's fine. As long as you're not violating the principles of trade that are
As long as you all these firm principles of trade,
be who you are, be who you are. And don't let anyone tell you whether or not you get to be in the league of the Elite League of believers. If you believe in Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger you're a believer. But the soup is become to blend. The soup is become too bland. That's it our our Islamic soup got no flavor. It's got no seasoning. With the exact we're supposed to be the exactly the same. A big old soup with no flavor. No man the deen of Allah subhana wa Tada has flavor, the seasoning to it. There's seasoning to this ummah. And that's a beautiful thing. I love that. That is one of my most favorite thing about the deen of Allah. Is that I know brothers from America. I know
brothers, you know,
from Africa. I know brothers from from Australia. I know brothers from the Arab world. I know brothers from the Nordic north. I know brothers from I know brothers from South America. I know Mexican Muslims. You know, I mean, men, go have some halau tamales,
go have some halal, you know, fishing grits, shrimp and grits that go and have some, the beautiful thing man is having that flavor of Boto and so Zanya Yeah, stop trying to tell Muslims, they gotta be cookie cutters, man. And just because they don't fit your ideal. You don't get the right to tell people who's a believer and who's not a believer.
is just stupid. It's dry. It drives me absolutely insane. And I and I, and I try I trust me, I try successfully at hamdulillah to bite my tongue when I see these things being talked about or discoursed or
it drives me nuts and we all do it with with the term Naseeha men, that word has become a trigger word for me. I'm not gonna lie to you but sisters, that word is a beautiful word, a beautiful word. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said at the new Naseeha this religion is Naseeha this religion is sincere advice. They said advice to advice from Allah his Messenger into the believers in general is advice and seek advice.
But Naseeha is a trigger word for me in this day and age because normally when anything is prefaced with the word Naseeha it is actually become it is actually what you mean is you mean admonishment.
It means admonishments. I am here to give you an A c hat, none of them. I am here to admonish you. Why? Because I feel like I'm sitting on a platform above you. And I'm looking down at you a little peasant. And I'm going to tell you why you're wrong. And that's going to make me feel better about myself. That's what Naseeha has become, in far too many circumstances. In this day and age.
That's exactly what it's become. And that is a tragedy. It is a tragedy.
and it is a travesty. And if that is what you do,
then then then you're going to find that same negativity they're looking for Naseeha is sincere advice is sincere advice and sincere advice. Let me tell you what now see how is Naseeha or sincere advice
is something that comes from the heart Naseeha is given out of love.
It is given out of love.
When you offer someone to see hmm, it should be because you love them. Like I come to a brother who I see doing something, you know, wrong, like he's out there doing something that is not good for him. And I see that and I recognize that and I feel some pain for my brother because I love him or he habibi. I love you for the sake of Allah subhanahu ATOD. Therefore, I'm going to advise you against this thing that you're doing out of that love for you.
And I want you to do better.
That is Naseeha it comes from a place of love. It does not come from a place of arrogance. It does not come from a place of harshness, it does not come a place come from a place of feeling of superiority.
That's not Naseeha that's admonishment. If you want to approach me and say you want to admonish me, then just be real about it from the beginning and tell me what you're going to do. So I can check you and tell you that unless your house and your affairs are in order, then your admonishment over here is unwarranted.
It is unwarranted because you don't really care about me, you just want to make yourself feel better. And I'm sorry, I'm not going to be your platform to do that.
But if you come to me as a brother,
as a brother, like a real one, and that's something else I learned during this pandemic, and I learned during some situations that happened to me in my life. One of the being the stalker tape so we're going to talk about at some point is I learned to recognize real I learned who was real in my life. And I learned who was not real in my life.
If you want to come to me as your brother,
or sister you know if a sister comes to another sister, and you want to advise me to something because of your love and concern and care for me, I'm all ears. I'm all ears and I thank you for and I love you for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada further 100% I love you keep it real with me, please. I love people who keep it real with me. I'm a I'm a frank and blunt person. And in most of my life, Frank and blunt, I just feel like being straightforward and blunt is is a way to cut around a lot of nonsense in in the way we deal with each other in the world today. But if you want to bring that to me that are hamdulillah I'm 100% 100% that.
But we really need to fix up on how we treat one another. The next video, I'm going to be dropping
power possibly today. We'll see I have a very long day today. And I don't know how I'm gonna feel at the end of it. But if not today, tomorrow, it's called a you must love one another. It's called you must love one another. And I'll be talking about a lot of this stuff and somewhat in detail. You know, but let me know what you guys think you know, am I onto something here? Or is I'm or am I the only one who sees this? Am I the only one that sees that? We've created this cookie cutter mentality that every Muslim must be exactly the same. You know, and when you reach you know this certain level you can be invited into the elite club and then beyond that, you know there's not really much else
for you. Am I please tell me if I'm not the only one who sees this
I don't know if he's doing it what he didn't call himself that I'm example in a while. Not needs to be heard.
When you call yourself there's I think there's difference when you call yourself a shear. I guess for people who call themselves shifts maybe so I'm not I don't I don't I'm not one of those
but you know these things Yeah, it's getting worse Muslim in product that's that's, that's the reason why I'm addressing it and that's the reason why I'm gonna continue to dress it is I see it getting much worse. Like, like, I'm gonna be straight up with you guys. Like for instance,
what I started when I created MGM
when I created mgL, um, you know, and started this whole streaming thing
I received a decent amount of flack. Big simply because, you know, I'm doing something abnormal, something that's not known or not even forget about the whole halal and haram issue with you. If you think gaming is haram, then just don't play it. But you know, I started talking about the cars.
You know, I started talking about the gaming, we started doing some gaming streams, but
people were like, oh, you know, brother, you show why
you're a data guy, why are you doing something else? Other than the doubt dispensing gratitude? You know, dispense? Brother, you should? You're a data guy. Why? When did I ever come out and say, that's all there was to me? When have I ever come out and said that I have no, I have no other interest, or I have no other for, you know, you know, interest in anything other than than the dean. You know, it's, it's, it's the craziest thing that
I've seen in a very long time. It's like, I am a person. Like these streams on YouTube. Yes, we do reminders. We do reminders, and that's because that's the core of who I am. I love sharing the message of Islam. So we're always going to do reminders. But then also, if, if the thing Yes, I know, it has many it has many, Dow has many forms. But that's not all that we're trying to do. Like, that was not all that I'm doing. 24/7 365 Like, that's just, that's I that that is illogical to think that that's all a person is most of the time for most people I'm, I'm a normal person. So we are also going to be doing normal things like just chatting and chillin. If I you know, if I come
in, turn on my YouTube stream and decide to talk about nothing but maybe technology or, you know,
something other than then then dean, there should be no issue in that. This should be no issue in that but unfortunately, this is what we've created in this whole, you know, weird Muslim circles that we have and the hardest things to wrap your head around it. The hard thing is when Cecilia Jasmine clearly regimented and
I guess people can do things that create a fault you know, like people who
look religious and who do bad things.
But at the end of the day, we all do bad things. We all make mistakes we all do things we try to advise each other from a good place. We all always try to
advise one another with love from a good place and in leaving that
ice cold juice I bet you get called out for no for not going to Speaker's Corner not a lot of people want to come on the Speaker's Corner that's not my
that's not my it's not my cup of tea speakers corner is not my cup of tea at all whatsoever, man.
There's just too much nonsense going on there. Islam little by little turning into Hindu culture. Let's hope not in sha Allah. Yes, thank you for saying this getting real boring. The online Muslim circles, we are getting kind of boring doing the same thing over and over and over and over and over again.
It will always have Excuse me, what does it say?
It will always be like that criticism always is but it would be nice if criticism came with luck and wisdom. Yes, of luck. And wisdom is extremely important when you're trying to advise but if you're not, if you're not advising somebody from a place of love, if you're not advising somebody from a place of love, within what are you doing from a place of care and concern? What are you doing? What like what are you doing? Seriously? What are you doing?
You don't have anything in your own life to worry about, like what are you doing?
Help each other with the positive and and help each other. Stay away from the negative and then leave it at that.
In one of your posts I underestimated for mental health is one of the suffer just suffers from best examples for each other. I take my words and Apollo's mela

I can't talk about I can't share my opinion on on medications. I can't share my I don't have qualifications for that. I don't have qualifications for something like that

you know I'm really inspired by videos we're going to continue we're not going to give up we're not going to give up for sure we're going to keep keep it going and Chairman but I had to get my little rant out there because I'm just tired I'm tired of everybody thinking that you know Muslims have to be cookie cutters and exactly the same all the time and that you know, I'm also I also get a Nicole Thank you very much for being a badger supporting the stream you always do realize oh Santa Monica you doing bro you know I'm I also got very tired of thinking of people trying to pin me into a box and that there's nothing else other than the media and Islam and if my if I come on and don't do a
video about Assam I don't talk about Islam for 30 minutes 45 minutes that I must have lost my mind and gone off the rails. Bro get a life get a life and get the hell away from me please because I don't need weird people like that in my life. Like you know we I'm going to be here talking about some stuff in 2022 we were putting things full on on the online sphere. So I'm going to have to be variety to new I am you know, I am going to talk about my Deen I am going to give reminders. We are going to talk about video games. We're all going to talk about modern issues where we might just talk about absolute nonsense as some point and sometimes some who knows
you know we might talk about tech we don't talk about whatever the heck we want to talk about that's the whole point being here
yes, no no problem. I don't remember because that's one thing is I don't I don't really I don't really focus too much on the negative but you know I accept the apology May Allah bless you and forgive me if I came off in any way offensive it's got to learn to be nice to each other a little bit more be nicer cookie cutter mean means that we got to be all exactly the same like we're coming off a factory assembly line of Muslims that's it like everybody looks exactly the same talks exactly the same you know, it's it's like it gets a bit boring gets a bit mundane
and I wanted to make it very clear and to be known that the people who believe in light light Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, those are the believers. Those are the believers not who you get to say is the believer or if you fit into this little thing being held by super chats it you keep it up half so thank you most for the five pound Super Chat May Allah bless you tonics Sony Santa Monica How you doing bro?

Seriously, the way we've created things online the whole line Muslim spaces become a large joke in large part today and I hate to say that but we're losing our losing our voice we're losing the audience we're losing our ability to even have the functional conversation because of the way we we treat each other and the way we behave.
And they almost look the same.

And that, you know, I'm not going to have that every single day. Nobody feels like that every single day. You know, these talks that you see going around where clips of some of these stream clips are actually taken and putting on tick tock or put on YouTube or put on Instagram reels or whatever.

Yeah, you know, I just want to, you know, be able to offer an open environment especially for our youth. And for you know, those of you who are regular people, just like the rest of us, like I said, my streams are for the regular Muslim. My strings are for the broken Muslim. My streams are for the you know, the oppressor, the oppressed Muslims, my streams are for the struggling Muslims, like my streams are just for your average, everyday money.
Who's trying to make it day to day and live their life? That's who my streams are for. And if you're one of those people, you know, then then then feel free to join us and go along with us on this ride. So what am I foodzie I just saw your messages now.

We were going to play Halo today how to that is the goal is to play Halo today. For the last hour, I just don't have it in me. I don't have it in me. And that's, that's where you got to know
your limits as well. Like, I like gaming as a hobby. But if I don't feel good, I'm not gonna go force myself to play a video game for not feeling good. It's just that that's not a hobby anymore.
