You know, I used to live for music
I select music. Not one moment of the day used to go by when I did not have my Walkman you remember back in the days I mean talking, like I'm old. I mentioned I had to have the music on to fill the void because the soul had not been fed. I'm listening to music every day from the shopping malls. When I open my phone there's music
random this guy's got music and that one's got that everything they're shopping mouth that every single place you go to music going on, right? Am I right? Is there a place you can go with is not music, even when you're in the masjid the person phone did during the day comes back.

Years and years I've been listening to it. I've been playing it me going to concerts.
I used to play the cello badly.
Thank God it was bad because otherwise I'd probably be still playing it now. Crazy. It's just it's like the vibration of the stringed instruments.

Get rid of the music.
Allahu Akbar. This minute, man
The conscious soul returned
