We was young and ambitious with the world in our hands. We was living with no bad living with no care. Confident introverts free presence everywhere. This is South London. We was SMS we had to step up. We was faced with a chest. We wasn't invested men, but we had some clean hearts. We had brotherhood coming from the worst parts if it all ends today. What can I say?

This life looks glorious, but the pains unseen have been nutopia since 1993 in the ghetto. The problem is they don't know when it's time to let go.

00:10:25--> 00:10:30

you know I used to travel so frequently pre COVID

00:10:31--> 00:11:12

I used to travel so frequently pre COVID And you know my body was was somewhat used to it and not not having traveled in so long and literally this is my third trip since since March 2020. So you know, I'm just not built for anymore man gets tired used to being a home. We've been going for a long time. With your permission I'm looking to get an Mg O E Rocket League team together while red wine gets us three teams of committed no worries. Do that in sha Allah is a bro. Do that. Do that.

00:11:12--> 00:11:22

And then Sunday is another jam packed day. Monday is a decently busy day. It's not crazy, busy Tuesday's another hectic day.

00:11:23--> 00:11:42

And then as long as I passed my pre departure COVID test on Tuesday I'll be leaving Wednesday Brighton early in the morning to head back home. And then on Friday, next Friday we'll be back in the stream labs at home in Sharla hotel everybody make dua that I passed that pre departure test because if not your boy is going to be stuck in the UK for

00:11:43--> 00:12:15

at least five to 10 days until I pass my test and that would just be that would just be rough. Rough. Can we expect to see any content from your trip Inshallah, probably just the talk tomorrow night tomorrow tomorrow night I will record the talk and I will post it but I'm not big on vlogging man I just I can't run around the streets with a camera of lugging my stuff may be killing me I don't. Normally I would be doing a lot more things as far as filming goes. But I'm also trying my best to limit my exposure and being out and about in everywhere and touching everything and being on every tube and all of that. I'm also trying to be very conscious that I do want to be able to go

00:12:15--> 00:12:23

back to the States. So I don't want to end up catching something I don't need because you can get the common cold and fail a PCR to fail a PCR test so

00:12:25--> 00:13:04

yeah, traveling is also subsidized that I'm going to come speak I'll just speaking to you subsidized is the reason why the stream is the Late today, by the way brothers and sisters.

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

I don't wanna go to the masjid expose anybody anything?

00:17:56--> 00:18:06

Hakeem mashallah Monstars turn the mess into a message yet that one hit me extremely hard to in that line hit me in this in the sheet by missing below this

00:18:07--> 00:18:12

track hit me very hard that we turn our mess into a message This is very beautiful.

00:18:14--> 00:18:18

You know that's what we're trying to do. That's all we're trying to do. turn a mess into a message

00:18:19--> 00:18:31

no watchman has so many Muhammad den You're so sad about AECOM who is now a member of our mgL discord management team Masha Allah who is now a member of our Discord management team Masha Allah Who Tiana

00:18:33--> 00:18:43

and the only reason I'm going to do this is because I've been feeling a bit down since last night I've been feeling a bit you know, I standing outside in the cold and wet all day on Tuesday filming as I said at the beginning of the stream.

00:18:45--> 00:19:09

And, you know, I could be just, you know, just a little down from that I could be getting a normal cold that still does exist, but since I'm going to be out and about for the next few days, and I have an event at the masjid tomorrow, and then I'm going to make sure that I do one of these tests and make sure I'm all good to go before tomorrow inshallah. Now I just got to do a little googling to figure out how you take these things, but I'm sure a little internet search of teaching me how to do that.

00:19:11--> 00:19:30

So we were here for a few more days. I'm looking forward I'm looking very much forward to getting back into the stream lab on next Friday in Sharma Huhtala and doing some hot drop. Unfortunately, we weren't able to do hot drop today I'm not gonna be doing it long enough. And plus, I don't want to test the limits. My stream is going off very well. I don't want to test the limits

00:19:31--> 00:19:31


00:19:33--> 00:20:00

the internet. Here's how I can better yeah, my COVID started off with body aches and nausea. So watch out for that. Yeah, I do have some body aches as well. That's the thing is I have a headache, have body aches have a bit of a sore throat. So we're gonna see what we'll test it out inshallah. But, you know, on Warzone right now they have on Warzone they have rebirth, Duo's trios and quads for the first time they have the entire playlist on rebirth. And so of course asked to be when I'm here, but

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

Next time in sha Allah I hope you guys have all been well bidding you know he to add him tomorrow tomorrow the talk I will be recording it as I said in sha Allah as long as I pass this this COVID tests and no issues then I will be recording the talk tomorrow.

00:20:18--> 00:20:27

In sha Allah subs insha Allah says Allah may Allah bless you for bringing these to me row. Just make sure we keep ourselves safe here and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow in chat on my hota Anna take care yourself Marbella.

00:20:29--> 00:20:32

Tomorrow the talk is going to be about calamities.

00:20:36--> 00:21:22

And it's going to be about, you know, the calamities that happen to us and how we are supposed to deal with them deal with trials deal with tests, deal with hardships deal with calamities. So, you know, we will we will be talking about that tomorrow in Charlottetown. As long as I'm going to take a test tonight. And then if it's negative and also take another one. Tomorrow, I just got to Google, how to take the how to take this thing but because I've never I've never taken the lateral flow the self, the self COVID tests, I've never ever taken one. So I got to look. Look it up and see it goes even more. So I'm going to do that as pm coming off. And I started with the same symptoms just Yeah.

00:21:23--> 00:21:29

I do also know that these things really can't distinguish between different types of colds. That thing I do know.

00:21:30--> 00:21:47

Because COVID Savi COVID, SARS, v2, whatever it's called, is in the same family as influences in the same film of the common cold and stuff like that. Nah, bro. Abbott is not a manual this box. I think, I think subs

00:21:48--> 00:22:05

took the manual out sod to do a Lola. I just do a little Google search, man. Of course, there's gonna be some there's gonna be one in the Google search. There instruction, that box of pictures and there's no instructions, man. Now they're not they're not in here. But I'm done. I have three tests in here. But there's no instructions.

00:22:06--> 00:22:10

Yeah, no, there's just swabs in the test instructions or

00:22:11--> 00:22:31

go all figured out? Sure, the instructions online, there's always going to be those those had to check news and news channels or YouTube. Yeah, I'm saying I'll look on YouTube and figure how to take this thing. And if I test positive I'll let you guys know, I test positive than when then the rest of the schedule is going to be looking shut down. Sheesh

00:22:33--> 00:22:59

and shall be fine. Yeah, but the more noise I'm not I'm not really worried about getting it and getting seriously Oh, because, you know, I'm healthy, somewhat healthy individual, I take care of myself, you know, my immune system has been tested by traveling around the world for so long. But the point is, you know, the biggest thing for me is not being able to go back home that would be the biggest problem is to be stuck here for an extra time. That's why I want to do this test now so that I know that if I am positive, I can self isolate until it's time to go back home.

00:23:00--> 00:23:06

But also I don't want to go this is this is in you know, this is something me and subs are talking about this on the way over here

00:23:08--> 00:23:11

a bit Salaam Alaikum. Bro How you doing feud Afghanistan, I'm gonna see it no matter tomorrow inshallah

00:23:13--> 00:23:50

is that, you know, it's, it's, it's a common, you know, logic that if you're sick, you don't go out and spread it to other people, it doesn't matter if it's COVID if it's the flu, if it's the cold, you know, that's one thing that I am grateful that this pandemic has brought about the awareness of people that look if you're sick, you might be alright. And you might get through it just don't go out and you know, in spread it to other people, because, you know, let's just say I have the flu, regular flu, forget about COVID If I have regular flu, and I will go to the masjid tomorrow, shake everybody's hands hug everybody. It the majority of people I come in contact with might be okay, but

00:23:50--> 00:24:08

then they might pass that on to somebody else who's immune compromised, or has comorbidities and you know, they could end up in the hospital or die from it. So if you're sick, just stay home. It's it's common, common logic that, you know, people didn't do because of the rat race of life, you know, people are sick, they go to work anyway, people are sick, they go out anyway, you know, so

00:24:09--> 00:24:14

I am going to take this test. And if I'm negative, we'll play it again. I'll take another one tomorrow. And

00:24:15--> 00:24:27

if I'm negative without one, then I'll go to the I'll go to the event and I'm the Lead everything will be all good. But if I test positive, then I will be staying right here. We'll probably be having some more streams if I test positive because I'm gonna be stuck right here in this flat until Tuesday.

00:24:29--> 00:25:00

So hamdulillah that's just we're gonna play common sense. Common sense has become far too common these days. They went a little too far with the common sense in the rules and regulations around this and I'm not getting into all of that. But it's always common sense that even after this whatever the next thing is after this, you know just have common sense if you're sick, you just don't go out and give it to other people. I've never really understood that. You know, I've never really understood that if I if I'm if I get sick. If I got the flu or if I got a cold. I've always been a person to stay at home until you get over

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

And you know that's just the way it should be

00:25:05--> 00:25:31

some businesses don't care yeah now it's changed big businesses that do care now that's why they found all these rules but you've see even with now they they've even changed the rules that if you test positive you only have to quarantine for five days if you don't have any symptoms if you don't have any symptoms Courtney five days and go back to work so of course you know they're realizing the the calamities have now with with in capitalistic societies where they need the working class to be at work so

00:25:34--> 00:25:46

inshallah we'll be okay brothers inshallah Abba folks and I want to do like I do, bro, how you doing? Another one of our members, may Allah bless you my brother. Since some people have politicize COVID They make it part of their personality to ignore it, and spread it on purpose.

00:25:47--> 00:25:51

Yeah, they just ignore it like there has to be a balance, there has to be a balance.

00:25:53--> 00:25:55

There always has to be a balance.

00:25:56--> 00:26:15

You know, that. If you if you if you test positive for COVID or you test positive for influenza, or you have a cold you know, you're sick. Common sense is I don't care what you believe about the politicization of COVID in the pandemic, I believe that a lot of it is politics. But at the end of the day common sense is you don't go

00:26:16--> 00:26:40

anywhere when you're sick you just just don't you just get better you don't go like if I had a an elderly parent who is old and their immune system doesn't work like it used to or or they have immune compromised immunity it's just common sense you don't go try to get people sick you don't go try to get other people sick just sense. So we'll be taking this right after the stream I'll look it up on Google how to take this

00:26:41--> 00:26:46

shot along with Anna because I know there's some process and step you have to go to take it so I'll take it and then

00:26:47--> 00:26:55

we will we'll see what it turns out. Like I said if I'm positive we'll be doing a lot more streaming most likely because Yeah, boy you're gonna be right here

00:26:57--> 00:27:03

where am I streaming live from? I'm in London. We are live in London right now

00:27:07--> 00:27:11

sided for tomorrow at one Benz Yeah me too bro I really really

00:27:12--> 00:27:23

hope that you know tomorrow everything's gonna be okay and I'll be able to do the talk in the lecture but you know this is one of those situations where we live in a very different world today. So if

00:27:24--> 00:27:26

if I if I test positive or I feel

00:27:28--> 00:27:31

if I feel much worse tomorrow then we'll play that by

00:27:32--> 00:27:36

Masha Allah may Allah would you efforts but you should make dua for me as you learn Salah

00:27:37--> 00:27:39

May Allah make it easy for you

00:27:40--> 00:27:49

Greenshoe live in direct war if you test positive guessing the talk is canceled Massawa yes, if I test positive I'm not going anywhere until I until I leave the country if I were to test positive

00:27:50--> 00:28:03

today I would not leave my flat and till it's time to leave the country and make sure that I do not fail my test to get back home because that is extremely important that I get back home

00:28:06--> 00:28:08

you can even hear it my throat I got something going on

00:28:11--> 00:28:12

yes or treat yourself.

00:28:13--> 00:28:37

Protect he was quiet mashallah, I am free. Welcome to the winner's club, tier one becoming Thank you very much for coming a member for the YouTube channel. And may Allah bless you grant you're good in this life and the next and I promise you guys in 2022 we are going to have some banging members only content for you guys stuff that is, you know, a way of appreciation. For those of you who are members and have shown membership is shown

00:28:43--> 00:28:46

May Allah make it negative? Yeah. 100% Oh, yeah. 100%

00:28:48--> 00:29:22

So we'll see, we'll see how it is, like I said, you know, I feel a little bit down so I'm gonna do the smart thing. I've been feeling sick since since this morning since I woke up. So I'm gonna do the smart thing. And I'm gonna take one of these COVID tests I have have some raw vitamin C I've been taking raw vitamin C gel that I've been taking some black seed also have some zinc, some vitamin D I have a whole bunch of stuff that to keep the immune system running so I'm not worried about getting sick sick, it's that's in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala but I'm not worried about getting sick sick. The two things I would worry about if I catch a cold right now especially away

00:29:22--> 00:29:41

from home is number one failing the test to go back to the states and number two going to the masjid and passing it around tomorrow because it will just be disrespectful especially in this especially in this era of fear around COVID that we live in we have to also as Muslims have common sense about you know, the opinions of others. You know, like there's going to be a lot of people

00:29:43--> 00:29:49

there's gonna you know, if I were to say, I tested positive before I go to the to the talk tomorrow there would be a great

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

amount of people who would not want me to come you know, like they would feel very disrespected if I came to the masjid anyway, after testing positive for COVID especially

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

If they got sick or some of their family got sick just would not do that it's having common sense around people's fears as well. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy. Hakeem

00:30:12--> 00:30:19

Was it hard to learn to read the Quran and Arabic I wouldn't say it was hard. It just took some took some dedication, took some dedication.

00:30:20--> 00:30:42

COVID Sore throat is the worst I've ever had. Yeah, I got a little bit of a sore throat. Also, you should also gotta say, if you can't taste like it's a serious downgrade or gift we take for granted unfortunately. Yeah, yeah, I've heard that with COVID that you you can't taste I had it back in April 2020 I believe it was. So I've had COVID before I'm not worried I'm not too terribly worried.

00:30:43--> 00:30:44

We'll just have to take a test to make sure

00:30:46--> 00:31:09

I can anything be done regarding membership not being available in my region. Imad, unfortunately no, unfortunately that's completely upon YouTube Well, aka Google on Google about memberships not being available in certain locations. I know they have been rolling out memberships and more locations I don't know what the reason why they don't have membership available in some locations. But that's that's not something I have

00:31:11--> 00:31:12

the ability to do.

00:31:14--> 00:31:46

Eve Enzo, what's up are you doing are you doing man sup just chillin chillin chillin in London with the with the chat and chat on live stream usually on Fridays we play war zone top drop Fridays, but we're not gonna play war zone for two reasons. Number one, I'm exhausted and not feeling 100% And number two, I'm on Wi Fi at the flats that I'm that I'm renting out for the week and it's been doing the stream beautifully. But I don't want to push it and try to jump on gaming and then the whole stream goes down especially when not when I'm feeling well.

00:31:50--> 00:31:50

Sorry dins

00:31:52--> 00:31:56

sore throat they're trying to be infection negative and COVID Mashallah, Mashallah.

00:31:58--> 00:32:33

Pondering Sol Salaam Alaikum use of use of Ponderosa now I am How you doing my brother. Hopefully I'll get a chance to pop out by Cp and Institute in sha Allah, Allah before I get out of here but it's really on the complete other side of London some there might even be a chance on Tuesday because Tuesday I will be out in West and circulars a little bit closer to west than where I'm at right now. So we'll see we'll play it by we'll play it by ear the lag would have been atrocious and so it's actually not too bad. Actually, I jumped in I played some more zone last night when I got in just because I saw the new places play listed updated and I want to see if you know how the ping

00:32:33--> 00:32:53

would look I actually only had a 20 ping on the EU servers. So the internet is very good for gaming on its own the internet is very good for streaming on its own. I just have not tried gaming and streaming on this Wi Fi and I don't know I don't know how well that would go over but I was actually on a 2017 but actually got put into some super sweaty lobbies and it didn't go to too crazy.

00:32:54--> 00:33:03

The lag like Sam Yeah, may Allah bless you use of ponders I'll try to get out to you guys and Sharla with blue hope so hopes on this trip Bismillahi Tyler

00:33:32--> 00:33:32

Wednesday morning

00:33:34--> 00:33:40

the tutor was my favorite spots in London. My favorite spot in London is it's hard to say

00:33:42--> 00:33:46

i It's hard to say what is my favorite spot is in London there's a lot about London that I do like

00:33:48--> 00:33:57

and a lot about London I don't like I don't like big cities first and foremost. So that one number one would not London off my favorite places to visit lists because I hate big cities that drove me absolutely

00:33:58--> 00:33:59


00:34:00--> 00:34:15

But you know my favorite spots in London are I like I like East, East London a lot simply because there's a huge concentration of Muslims in East London and if you're a traveler and a visitor, this hello food everywhere. There's you know

00:34:16--> 00:34:28

Eastland and mashes right here I stay literally Eastland mashes a five minute walk from my flat so I'm able to do all of that so I really feel comfortable on this side and I know this area around I know my way around London to the tubes and things of that nature

00:34:34--> 00:35:00

I saw my grandma watching an interview with you in Arabic Masha Allah Masha Allah Hakeem Ottoman May Allah bless your grandmother grant agenda inshallah apology there's a hot take. Do you reckon the fear of Cobra can possibly lead to being victimized by what's worse if you get too careful about it? If you're too careful about anything you can develop, you can develop OCD, you can develop OCD about anything and COVID has created a lot of OCD or has brought out a lot of OCD.

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

CED tendencies and people and that's not good for you that's not good for you to be too worried about anything is not good for you.

00:35:08--> 00:35:19

Because we're supposed to have trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala yes we were supposed to tie our camel but we also put our trust in Allah you tie your camel then you trust in Allah subhana wa Taala to

00:35:24--> 00:35:27

I'm good I'm the light standard I before that we had men a man

00:35:29--> 00:35:31

asking me my private medical information

00:35:33--> 00:36:05

no bigger pondering so yeah a lot of Route mashallah, I was wonder if this membership only videos something? What is it? How would it go? I will discuss the membership only benefits that I'm planning to introduce. When I get back to the states and Sharla when I get back to the states and I'm safely back at home and safely back in my stream lab Insha Allah, we don't discuss the Vizia bringing up that key. If you keep talking about that over and over again on stream the algorithm is going to pick it up and flag it to be reviewed and who knows what could happen. It's crazytown these days. Censorship is real censorship is real.

00:36:06--> 00:36:33

Imad Hashem big up East London. 100% Bigger East London with the mandem we'd like to hear speaking out of it, please.

00:36:46--> 00:36:51

00:36:52--> 00:37:17

No, don't do that for you to again, that don't don't don't drive really fast. Don't do that. Don't do that. Somebody come from Indonesia and J Masha Allah. What do you look for when you're recruiting people mg, especially content creation. Hakeem Armand, when we look for content creators, what I'm looking for is number one, they can keep it in with the within the guidelines of NGO such as halaal content that you're creating halal, family friendly, PG, or even G rated content.

00:37:18--> 00:37:56

I'm looking for quality, not not that your stream has to be the most quality stream now. But I want to be able to see there is a potential that with some guidance, you could make a high quality content, whether that is high quality, recorded content or high quality streams, that you're engaging, that you know that because the whole goal of mgL is to provide quality content creators to be a source of halaal entertainment for Muslims, a source of Halal entertainment. So it needs to be halal. And he's been keeping it you know, within the rules, and it should be entertaining, you know, something and if I see somebody like we're looking right now we have people looking for content

00:37:56--> 00:38:33

creators. If I see somebody that has potential, but they're not yet there yet, then what we're going to do is work on a path in 2022. These are some things like 2021, all about MGM was me learning all the first year of MGM was me learning, learning how to do my own streams, learning how this whole discord thing works, learning how to structure things, learning what was needed, what was not needed, how to create a structure. And now in 2022 Insha, Allah, we are going to be creating that structure within mg L, that is going to allow us to grow into an organizational format in the Lightoller. So if there are some people who I see have potential to be a content creator, but

00:38:33--> 00:39:17

they're just not there yet, then we're going to work on a path on how we can help them improve in sha Allah. As well as I'm going to be creating a list of videos for tips and guidance for people who want to become content creators, whether that's recorded format content, or live stream content, whether it be on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, gaming, whatever it is, I'm going to start working on a series of videos for that in sha Allah Who to Allah. So anybody that's interested in being a content creator can watch these sets of videos and learn how to do it from the most basic format like the most basic stream setup, or the most basic way to record your gameplay, whether it be off your PC or

00:39:17--> 00:39:44

your ps4 and then get it edited and get it uploaded. So we're gonna or whether it's an intermediate or advanced type of stream or advanced type of, of recorded format. So we're going to be working on that in sha Allah Who to add that that series of videos and there's going to be an entire that'll be there'll be an entire playlist I'll create for that on the channel for people who are interested in becoming a content creator in sha Allah Who to add

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

a hope you okay one day you can go to Indonesia insha Allah Huhtala would love to inshallah LG and I'm going to hamdulillah do you plan to do any Dawa training videos? I don't know. We'll see. We'll see in sha Allah Allah Tala this suit. There's so many

00:40:00--> 00:40:17

Many things that I don't want to create are being hailed by SuperJet Masha Allah Hakeem out of mine with the 499. Super Chat, may Allah bless you. So when I was going to ask about videos like that, yes, there's many things that I'm going to be working on as far as content creation, for mgL, with specific

00:40:19--> 00:40:52

mind frames mainframes. So the whole point of the channel is there's different, it's kind of like a one stop shop at the moment. And if it grows too much, then we might separate the content into different channels. But right now, I want to try to keep it everywhere, so you guys know where to come in to find it. So you'll have the Islamic reminders, whether they're just straight up reminders of this come off the stream, you're going to have the car content videos that are going to keep coming right now. It's just very cold. There's going to be the podcast content, there's going to be the mgL content, whether that's gaming clips, and then another thing I plan to add in sha Allah is

00:40:54--> 00:41:13

tutorials tutorial content, so there'll be a tutorial section we'll put on the channel so that it's tutorials on on how to get set up as a content creator if you want to become a content creator for mgL or you just want to become a content creator, you want to know how to put your own content out there. So we'll see in Charlottetown

00:41:15--> 00:41:22

somebody come faria hope you're doing well. This one asked tomorrow if talk still going on is was the NGO meetup Allah said So somewhere in Georgia Linka first, I haven't heard anything

00:41:24--> 00:42:06

from the channel. The goal is tomorrow if the talk goes off, if I don't you know, if I like if I don't have any issues tomorrow, I don't fail any of these COVID tests or anything like that. Then after the talk, the goal is to have a get together in a meal with some of the NGO bros. So if you want to go out with us tomorrow, then be at Masjid Humaira at 7:30pm for Isha and then after issue of the talk, and then when to go out afterwards and Shalonda again, that's all play it by ear, I will announce it to tomorrow on my Twitter and on my instagram if for some reason that falls apart or I wake up feeling like absolute trash in the morning or I've even if I pass one of these tests

00:42:06--> 00:42:09

tonight, I'm going to take another one tomorrow just to make sure inshallah

00:42:10--> 00:42:47

there'll be awesome brother you can make some videos about how to get down with my work as a non Muslims and work I'll see about doing that inshallah. There's a lot of content that we that we want to make. It's just you have to find the time in the right direction. And when it comes to content creation right now I'm pretty much a one man show. So all the filming, all the editing, all the design, all the background designs all the perceived is into money acquired mashallah feud Afghan for joining the winners club tier one we are getting very close to having a hot drop Fridays I mean, Throwback Thursday stream, Daniela heeta Isla, very soon once we reach 100 members, we will start

00:42:47--> 00:42:52

doing throwback Thursdays and playing some old school games as well some old school zombies maps.

00:42:53--> 00:43:16

As I was saying, I do all the filming, I do all the editing. Everything is a one man show except for the thumbnails lately. You'll see the thumbnails have been very good because I've found somebody that's doing thumbnails. So for right now, it's everything's on me. And also want to start doing some tic toc reminders, mental health reminders, because we have the Chevron's coaching that is that is becoming very, very busy.

00:43:18--> 00:44:00

So we have a lot of different directions that I'm trying to go but I'm also trying not to overwhelm myself and put too many things on the plate that I don't get them done well, because I'm a type of person who I don't want to put anything more on my plate than I'm able to do with quality for me it's quality over quantity always always quality over quantity. So the goal is to be able to do things with with quality and as long as the quality can stay where it is then we will increase the quantity that that is how I operate as long as the quality can stay where it is then we can increase the quantity in Sharma who Tiana because that's what we want to give to you guys is is to be able to

00:44:01--> 00:44:20

produce quality halaal family friendly entertainment content reminders, streams, videos, gaming cars, mental health and tackle everything in Shama Huhtala, but always to try to do it with the best quality and to do with the Sun as the Prophet SAW Selim said to do things with the sun.

00:44:22--> 00:44:54

Hakeem let's get to 100 members for transit yes in sha Allah Huth Allah once we get 100 We will be there I don't know where we're at right now because I don't want to pull it up and check again we're being hailed by Super Chat. I wish there was a better way and this is one thing that I hope YouTube Gaming does increase their their their back end now with all these big streamers coming into YouTube, because I'd like to be able to see a member ticker how many members we have but it does not add together so I have to update you guys on the regular before I'll make sure I do that. Now before stream I'll check the memberships and let you guys know where we're at and Allah

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

may Allah bless you Massawa just for your your your intentions.

00:45:01--> 00:45:34

retana Bro feed Afghan May Allah bless you for becoming a member Abdullah one the quality is always really good mashallah, that's the goal is to give you quite as quality, I want you to see as much quality from our NGO content creators, as if you were to go to Twitch or YouTube, go to YouTube and look at any other streamer or any other content creator, you know that his high level of what they do, I want you to see the same here. Because just because we're doing Muslim streams to other Muslims, I don't think we should sacrifice quality sacrifice, production, sacrifice content, just just for the sake of doing it. I want to make sure that one thing you guys always know is that

00:45:34--> 00:45:40

there's always going to be quality content, whatever we do, and whatever we put out in shall butanna

00:45:42--> 00:45:54

Oh, the struggle is real. Alright, we've been 45 minutes, I'm going to start wrapping it up guys simply because I don't want to if something happens, and I'm not feeling well, I don't want to overdo my throat. And then,

00:45:55--> 00:46:01

you know, not even be able to talk tomorrow. So that's why we're gonna we're gonna wrap it up early tonight in sha Allah.

00:46:03--> 00:46:11

What is your view on the removing the dislike button, I'm not really bothered one way or the other, you know, I mean, because I don't really judge

00:46:12--> 00:46:35

a video based on his dislikes, and likes and things of that nature. So I don't know, they removed it, they removed it, they didn't, they didn't. I know they did remove it now. You know, it is what it is because you have some people that have come and just dislike videos just for the sake of doing it just because they don't like the individual or whatever. So you know, I think it's also been used as a bullying tactic. And that's kind of why YouTube took it down.

00:46:36--> 00:46:41

So I have no issue with them taking it down. I also have no issue with them leaving it up. Because I'm not really bothered one way or the other.

00:46:44--> 00:47:20

I talked to me a while you were in London, we were doing some filming for a charity, we'll actually be doing some more filming for charity. Throughout the rest of my trip being here, I'm trying to get all the filming that I need to have done for the next six to eight months done. Because normally I come back and forth a couple times a year for a charity that I that I partner with. But that's back when traveling was much easier. And now you know the traveling is so difficult and I'm literally like now let's say I failed this COVID test I'm stuck here and I couldn't get back home. I don't want to take that chance anymore. So this will be the last trip that I take until overseas until all

00:47:20--> 00:47:46

these COVID regulations are dropped meaning that these tests to come in and other countries are dropped. Because there's always a risk when I go anywhere that I can get stuck there. And that's unfortunate and nobody wants to be sick away from home away from your family away from my wife and kids no nobody's mostly sick like that. I'll be a big old baby when I'm sick and I'll be here all by myself laying on the couch struggling when men when men get sick the man flew man we did

00:47:51--> 00:47:51


00:47:52--> 00:48:09

the new round base map sucks in my opinion Vanguard was a waste of money they did they abducted they put the round base map in is that round base map release now. She no numa I have to give it a check it out. I doubt it's gonna be any good because Vanguard itself has been has been a struggle. It's been it's been rough in and all of itself.

00:48:11--> 00:48:16

Yeah, the man who really is like that when men get when men gets it like that we go all the way down, bro.

00:48:18--> 00:48:21

I'll check it out. I'll look at it later inshallah. Alright, guys, we're gonna wrap it up.

00:48:23--> 00:48:46

Now, like I said, If I fail this, I will be quarantining for the rest of my trip and we'll be doing some more streams. If I don't fill it in tomorrow in sha Allah and I'm fine tomorrow then we will have the talk tomorrow at mesh it'll matter. And then we will have the regular stream on Monday. On Monday we'll have our regular stream which is at

00:48:47--> 00:49:18

2pm Eastern Standard Time 7pm GMT or 7pm UK time unless I'm out and something keeps me from getting back here. But that's the golden the evening when I get back into my flat we will be having a stream on Monday been the lanita but I'll keep you guys posted on whether or not I passed if I failed this everybody will know because we have to cancel everything. Alright guys, as always, I love you for the sake of Allah forgive me for the stream being a bit short today. Normally we'd like to do two three hours on Fridays as you know, but I don't want to push my throat as you guys can feel just

00:49:20--> 00:49:20

a little bit a

00:49:21--> 00:49:56

little bit under it today. So I want to go into this and make sure that I am all good. And don't want to kill my throat in cases don't have it I want to build at least speak tomorrow in sha Allah Huhtala has been doing a lot of talking on these videos and recordings. So my throat is just been put to the test. Alright, as always, I love you all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah grant you peace in your hearts. May Allah grant you peace in your homes. May Allah grant you peace in your minds. May Allah grant you peace and your souls. At the end of the day. That's all we want this piece and we're turning our mess into a message and I'll see you guys on Monday Binita

Anna, yesterday is gone. Tomorrow you might not ever see

00:50:00--> 00:50:14
