Lessons from lockdown (with Nafisa & Tasneem)

"Never, go member one but I can Salaam Haney visa high fiving. I am sweltering melting we speaking literally. You know while I'm just glad that we do sound and visuals right now. THREAT PAINT, down my face. Drooping. Disgusting. Listeners would literally block us if they could see us right now but. Shit. That'll be enough of this nasty window computer screen as well. With more. So what we talking about today, we're talking about lessons that we've learned from lockdown. So with one lockdown behind us and another potentially on the way we thought we take a look at three lessons that we've learned from lockdown. Tasneem. Let's start off with you and your family. What's the one family lesson that you've learned that we can learn from? Okay I'll try and condense it to one family. And okay, so obviously. It's been difficult being stuck with the same people day in day out but I. Realized, that can be enjoyable as well. If you just let go a little bit and not kind sweat the little stuff. Like you I'm so busy at work of time and all of that kind of as she see my kids that much during the week by reading it enjoy spending some time with them and it made me realize I. so important to spend that time with family and not just with the kids there. But with elders, my grandma passed away during lock Tom and I so many regrets because I haven't seen her for about two months because we were in lockdown about six weeks before she passed away. So she had no guests. No one could go see her haven't seen her for about two months and I think that burke me just knowing that she went issue pretty much alone and no one was around with echo she was in hospital and that Kinda thing and then I missed not just her everyone that we couldn't agree together we couldn't mourn together. We couldn't do anything together we would just so isolated and I kept thinking and my parents are getting old or if they go their next and then to see them and not getting to spend time with them, and all of that was playing through my mind and I just realized that is so important just to. Enjoy spending time with family wall. We still have them. All kids are elders everybody just? Yeah. It's priceless. I completely agree with you and I felt some of what you felt as well not taking family for granted and just really missing one after awhile initially, it was kind of a novelty and you think you're a quite like being isolated and thank God we don't have any more guests don't have to go to anyone. So we went through that for a while and then the fatigue slowly started to settle in and we kept thinking Oh, imagine if we could do this and imagine if you could visit that person especially you know Ramadan came and went and eat and the same thing I lost my grandma as well. Just start of lockdown. Husband works from home and I work from home. So we do see children quite a lot when they're at home and at school. So for us even though effect like summer, holidays, Christmas holidays at the beginning, we did slowly start to realize that what the school does for them is priceless as well. My husband especially felt like the school really painted important role in the children's lives, which which we didn't value may be as much or just think about it although we really enjoyed spending time with children and there were so many other things we did that we didn't do before lockdown you know playing more games finding imaginative ways of doing things. We did miss the outside world. We were thinking something simple as meeting somebody or a stranger even being able to walk past without recoiling and things like that I think it really made us realize the importance of simple things that we took for granted I think what you said about the schools do for kids and how undervalue a parochial is definitely true. I think. Obviously, like you said, we really enjoyed the time the kids, but it did come to a point win it was getting overwhelming and I think the home schooling. Pov, it was getting overwhelming and it made me realize that I could never ever heard school my children like every day I'd log on and do the work with them and I just felt like destroying the education. Helping on doing all the good the teachers done the loss. Gee, I ruined all. I'm pretty sure I'm learning feeling like that as well on really tough and to be honest my kids tools the end just lockdown was lifted hunter lot the right time the beginning of feral. Call from outside both. So long stuff that the navy do before they started doing like damn and they need space because everyone doesn he space from everyone else and they also need space from each other and you. Definitely me. And they weren't getting that. Everything, in moderation, right thing is really important to have in life. So you have times but you take some time out, take a step back and just reflect right. But then at the same time, you need other things to go on. So it's important to take a step back ball forever.

Tales of Prophet Hud

"Chapter. One. The people of odd lived many years in the windswept hills of an area between Yemen and Oman. They were physically well bill and we known for their craftsmanship especially in the construction of tall buildings with lofty towers they were outstanding among all the nations in power and wealth, which unfortunately made them arrogant boastful. Their political power was held in the hen of unjust rulers against whom no one dared to raise a voice. There were not ignoring of the existence of a law nor did they refuse to worship him? What they did refuse was to worship alone. They worshiped other gods also including is. This is one sin of luck does not forgive. Alone wanted to guide and discipline these people. So he sent a prophet from among them. This profit was hot peace be upon Him and noblemen who handled this task with great resoluteness and tolerance. Even. Julia reported that he was high even sully even our function even Sam Ebbing. Noah based upon him. He. Also reported that Prophet Hud Peace Be. Upon. Him was from a tribe called I'd even us even Sam even Noah who were Arabs living in I'll off in Yemen between Oman and Hadramout on a land called usher stretching out into the seat. The name of their valley was Mugabe's. Some traditions claim that hot peace be upon him was the first person who spoke Arabic while others claim that Prophet Noah, peace be upon him was the first. It was also sad that Prophet Adam peace be upon him was the first. Prophet Hood Aber condemned idol worship, and admonished his people. My people, what is the benefit of these Jones that you car your own? Henson worship. In reality, it is an insult to the intellect. There was only one diety worthy of worship and that is a law. Worship of him and him alone is compulsory on you. He created you he provides for you and he is the one who will cost you to die. He gave you wonderful physiques and blessed you in many ways. So believe in him and do not be blind to his favors or the same fate that destroyed. No was people will overtake you. With such reasoning hot hope to instill faith in them. But there refused to accept his message. His people ask him. Do. You desire to be or master with your call. What payment do you want? Hud tried to make them understand that he would receive his. From a law. He did not demand anything from them except that they let the light of truth touch their minds and hearts. Although the Almighty states. And to odd people, we send their brother hot. He said. Oh my people worship along. You have no other law but him. Certainly you do nothing but invent is. Oh my people I ask of you know reward for it. My reward is only from him who created me Will you not then understand? And Oh my people. Ask, forgiveness of your Lord and then repented to him. He will send you from the sky abundant rain and at Strang's your strength. So do not turn away as Muturi mean or criminals disbelievers in the oneness of a law. They SAT. Ohio. No evidence have you brought us and we shall not leave or gods for your mere saying. We are not believers in you. All that we say is that some of our guts have seized you with evil. He said. I call a lot to witness and bear you witness that I am free from that which you describe as partners in worship. And with him. So plot against me all of you and gave me no respect. I put my trust in Allah, my Lord, and your Lord. There is not a living creature, but he has crossed of its warlock. Fairly. My Lord is on the straight path. So if you turn away still I have conveyed the message with which I was sent to you.

Addiction in the Age of Covid, with Dr. Amer Raheemullah, M.D.

"Honor Rahimullah It really happy to have A. On the show we've known omair out, of course, outside of work for quite some time as well. But I, myself didn't know about all the really interesting area of expertise that he dabbles in omair is a clinical consultant at Lucid Lane which is a startup. He'll be talking about relevant to the topic at hand today, which is addiction. and Dr Amirah Hemas, a clinical assistant professor at Stanford University. School of Medicine and Director of the Addiction Medicine Consultant Service at Stanford Hospital. We're GONNA be talking a lot about addiction as expertise today. Given all the stressors that are happening in the world right now, armor is board certified in Addiction Medicine Internal Medicine, and he completed his training at Stanford University School of Medicine in his internal medicine training at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. So as I said, his specialization as OPIOID, N., Benzodiazepine take. Notice that tapers off. You'RE GONNA have to educate us on on the right promotional US now say. We call it the Golden Ben Zozo Okay Ben says, and treating substance use disorders in residential and outpatient programs as well as in patient and office based setting. You're welcome super interesting to talk about this very important although under not as much talked about topic. So really important and interesting to dive into that. Thanks for having me Yeah and Omer touched on this or alluded to this Excuse me I'm we obviously know you personally out beyond just having you on the show full disclosure armour's my cousin and I think, Omer, you've got an interesting sort of linked to armor as well. Raise your brother in law and armor Western. Or Medical School they went med school together. That's right. My brother-in-law they went to med school together and. we live we all live in the bay area, of course. Ten to happen with this show but Yeah. Of course, you know my I live right across the bridge from Stanford in Amer works at Stanford. So but but again, really interesting really really interested to dive into some of these talks I didn't even didn't even I didn't even know all these things about her so Yeah. Yeah for sure for sure. Absolutely and as we often like to do err on you know I guess tell us a little bit about yourself Obviously we we we heard University of Illinois being mentioned there You are originally from Chicago Illinois maybe talk a little bit about your background, and then we can get into your professional life. Sure. Absolutely. So So you know born and raised in the Chicago. Land area. We moved out here a couple years ago to the Bay Area California, to pursue some extra training and addiction medicine and started working at Stanford, you know loved the weather and the work I was doing out here and I stayed on to launch an addiction consult service at Stanford. Hospital. Addiction concert services are a way of intervening and increasing access to addiction treatment in the hospital setting. So for example, you know we have a drug overdose epidemic you'll have things like drug courts because people with addictions commonly get arrested for things are run. INS with the law so they'll have drug courts where they'll have. treatment associated with these Felonies her charges that people get such this. It's this concept of intervening where there's a large population of drug addicts and people with alcohol problems. Save the hospital people with addictions also have a higher prevalence of higher incidents of hospitalization. So by intervening at the hospital level rate to. Intervene on a large concentrated population of people with addiction. So we we go in and we talked to people in the hospital who have a medical consequence of their addiction, and this is you know crystal meth heroin, alcohol cannabis issues as well. So psychiatric complications of their addiction or medical complications of their addiction, and they're really in more reachable and teachable moment just like you know after they have a legal consequence with the drug courts, there are much more reachable and teachable moment. So in the hospital we come in, we'll do a brief intervention get your family involved, get them started on treatment therapy medications, and then linked them to ongoing treatments. It's really new, cut a model, but it's rapidly increasing all over the country to address it's the idea of their. They've Kinda hit this low and you're kind of turn the leverage that low point to and make into a turn around moment, right? Absolutely. Absolutely. A lot of our patients are just going on about their business. Some of them have been thinking about salvaging and alcohol for some time others not even a thought, but once they come to the hospital. Their lives are such somewhat disrupted, and now they are in the hospital away from drugs and alcohol minds clearing up a little bit and in some sort of pain and suffering from their medical consequence. So now they're a little bit more teachable, reachable, frustrated, sick, and tired of being sick and tired. Then we come in and tell us and we start to have a real collaborative patient centered discussion and go from there.

Unifying your will with the will of Allah

"Blessed to be joined by a very good friend of mine said Sane Machi-. He's an Islamic lecturer he's been studying in. Beirut for some years now. Just an all-round quite and. Inspiring and Kind of God centric Guy I think. So. We've been wanting to do content together and we wanted him through some something with the Muslim viable years now but he's always out studying, and then when he comes, he's kind of like lecturing for a few days and then he's back out. But we were able to find some time. and. We. So. Obviously, you hear the conversation that we have but why I really wanted to get him on is that I think there's like a very unique way in which he talks about God and religion. And it's quite an empowering thing. So like even I remember when we were having the conversation I was thinking back to some lecture gave last year I think when he was in London and I had the same kind of thing where it's also simple and it's all just anchored around God I'm so I so I called them up and I said you know, let's let's your podcast and I want you to kind of talk about some of these things and some things you mentioned your lecture series and whatever else and we had like twenty minutes half we mapped out what we're going to discuss. Item we go into go into record. A couple of days AIDS like over a week weeknights and then he's like I was like, oh, she would just recap what we discussed. It acknowledged freestyler. So he kind of just thought at the conversation and and just saw when I loved it to be honest I'm. Always enjoy his company and conversations with him. And that's that's it really If you did actually, if you do enjoy this podcast there is potential opportunity for us to. Record more with a sane so Why as in like message email will ever ask postal social media tiger us. Last No, and let me know and I will be sure to me because in London for a while very short time I'm going to try and. Getting back in if there is a a decent response from people, so please do. Everything without further ado. Here's my conversation with Hossein. Monkey. Saddam Hussein. Thank you very much for for coming on the podcast I I. Think It's worth people nine the background that you me. Quite a few favours now because a few few years ago I was out in in. Lebanon. Yes, and we would you to meet. It's about three years ago and but three to two or three three years ago and you you flopped I mean I had a car accident. This is the second. Comes on an important. Was that and then you've come to London Tovia from London reason you've come to the under every an we've had like brief moments of being able to meet up and chat and whatever but we haven't sat down like this. longtime common. Yeah. It's quite exciting to be honest So. What, begin wherever you want my i. I think social talk about is in the we've allowed to catch up. But let's specify those part that to one side right. So I think for me when when you said Yes to podcast I thought it'd be interesting to talk about quite a few things. So recent you've been talking about you did an election series into what the Prophets yes and stories from the Koran what was was really interesting and and the stuff that she would we wanna do, oh, we're going to be doing more of, but the year before that you were in London and you delivered ten lectures and it was all kind of shaped around the love of God. Yes. And what was quite striking for me personally was that there was something in because I know you personally as well and I I've known you for for a long time before you were studying and everything else, and maybe we'll do another a whole podcast on on the whole journey has been about nine years almost nine ten years. It's been a long time but but there's there's there was something there is something in the way that you when you talk about God and when you're talking about all of these notions of loving God and really embracing. The spirit of Islam and everything else that this is a a really deeper kind of passion. And belief and almost serenity as well in the way that you kind of talks I wanted to I think if we start with that like. What Okay we approach allies a concept and a as a as a topic as you know our. Creator Moss and everything else What is allow mean to you? That's a big I'm sorry for. Jumping from the great question. So I think. Yes. I do use love as the launchpad to talk about a loss upon down and talk to a law SUPERNOVA. But I think that when a human beings especially in young is. When they think of God or the concept of God even in when it comes to parents for example, because when we're young, we don't fully understand the concept of God, but we see in

Professor Mohammad Fadel Returns to Discuss the Current Political Climate

"BOCOM professor frontal a really happy to have you on I know you've been on the show in the past prior to when I joined when we had different co host, but I did over the weekend a that episode I think he was episode thirty, three, thirty, four from summer, two thousand sixteen, and I listened to it just to catch up and hear a little about Your your background and your points of view. Is a super interesting. kind of got me thinking of of all the craziness that that's happened. Since two thousand sixteen, right life has been crazy in general since maybe nine eleven you could say but We've kicked it into high gear since the trump election, and now of course everything that's going going on with the virus of macro level. But It's like I said it's been crazy year. And you explain the rise of trump through economics, and that really that really resonated with me. You were talking about how things have gotten global and whatnot, and because there's more supply and demand you talked about more more more supply of workers may be flat or left Earth's or lower demand of of of jobs in the capital, potentially for the for the lower class. things have only gotten worse right so. Do you see. Do you see that that pattern continuing and potentially leading to more and more extremism or are you? Are you hopeful? Well I mean. covid changed a lot of things. So I mean. So let me back up I. Guess Trump from the beginning. Began to charge reorient trade policies began posing lots of openly protectionist measures. And then Cova conflict celebrated that. And layer on top of that a certain kind of anti Chinese Stanton. That Kobe has reinforced. That was already pre existing. and. So now. Yeah was situation where there's a kind of broad consensus among the political class that something has to be done about China. Now it's not clear what that will mean. In terms of global trade, because the global trading system is highly dependent on Chinese purchase patient, but as you, you know just in the last few months atop has been ratcheting up the pressure on China Army Right now trae closing council it's. Posing greater greater sanctions on Chinese tech firms, etc, odds greater confrontations with China in the in the South China Sea among other things. and then coverted has caused a lot of people that make me. We need to bring back a lot of production of things back to the United States. Now I don't know how realistic that. Ambition is particularly if it's more than a few products that might be viewed as critical in the public health emergency. but the General Point that I made twenty sixteen I think about global economics remains the case today. That is of great benefit in the aggregate to the United States. Particularly United States but at the same time there are a lot of losers from globalization The trump response to bat has been to try to engage protectionism. In a in a certain sense kind of change, the terms of trade in a way that slanted the United States by imposing tariffs on trading partners now United States can get away without just an extent because the united. States has such a leading role in the global economy, no country. Wants to be excluded from the US market. So they are. Willing to go along, and there's very limited steps that they can take in the short term. To retaliate against the US, the problem is. Over the medium to long term. States wants to take that approach to global trade. It's likely that it's going to produce. Reactions, right! You might see a rise of different kind of trading bloc centered around China for example centered around Europe right in which other countries enter into our French trading relationships with each other. To protect themselves in the United States. You also see this going on with the role of the dollar. Nice, as has been very aggressive in using the role of the dollar as the world's reserve currency to impose sanctions, Willy Nilly, all over all over the world thereby effectively. Telling the rest of the world that if you want to trade with us, you can have to adopt our sanctions regimes. and so even places like the EU or trying to build out. Heyman systems that can bypass the dollar right so they can escape the kind of US stranglehold on the global, market! So our costs while twice as there are costs involved to trying to either export you use US economic our to impose its will in terms of geopolitics with the dollar or with Tariffs Charles. Trade. In order to protect US workers. There's a much easier route. which I would like to see A. Dog! And it's possible it could happen. If there's a large enough democratic featuring, remember namely we preserve the gains of the post. World War Two liberalize trading system, but combine it with a much higher level of taxation. That would allow the government to redistribute the gains from International Trade and compensate the losers. What we've had going on the United States since the Reagan Revolution is a double whammy to the working class in that. Global. Association has undermined security jobs on the one hand and I guess conservative. mark pro-market policies domestically destroyed the the welfare state internally. Right. And so. Yeah, you have cheap TV's. Education is unbelievably expensive. Helped expensive. Real estate is on XP. Unbelievably expensive right. So. The most fundamental goods are outside the reach of the average worker, even even professionals right. consumption goes are really cheap an audit it feels like the current administration is doing if you look at the two by two of of what you just laid out right like less less fairness, and Lester is redistribution, more fans, smartest redistribution, globalization versus nationalism that the current administration is going towards nationalism without fairness, and you want to go towards globalization, which is good for everybody in the long run plus Mauri, distribution and fairness. Strategy of trump and Publican party is to. Push back against globalization where the United States does not have apparently advantage by using tariffs. Right. And then imposing. Her fragile trading charms on its trading partners where it does. And then instead of we distribute Gel redistributionist policy to to. Income! WHAT THEY WANNA do is used tariffs to protect its France.

The spiritual habit of Bismillah

"Everyone and welcome to another episode of the road, Muslim Polka. This week I am doing a pre check in for the fourteenth spiritual have I have no idea how. How quickly time has gone and. I just. I'm still shocked than stuck to fourteen You know sometimes I think when we try and set ourselves tussle anonymous goal oriented person for me. I was really worried. I was thinking high. Actually follow through this. Can I commit to a night constantly updating on it, but humble home so far going fourteen strong and yeah just. An looking forward to what this next Batch of habits split up to twelve and thirteen, twenty six on. Any. I'm just interested to see where it goes. I was on such a high. Low when now I'm hoping to get into a high with or You know this habit in allowing it to take root in my in my mind, and my and my practice so the while. You don't even know what to do what you do from the. the this next habit is to recite the verse of loss of this Melilla manure him. just before any action I take I think I've mentioned in the past. I have a friend who she's like. She's always reciting before getting up in for holding T! Before, I, don't know opening her laptop everything she does. She just recites it and. I was so fascinated with it and just. I don't think. In the beginning to religious like why are you doing it? What's the point of it and then I think it's just about capacity. Right like we don't were all on this ladder and I don't think anybody should be knocking any. One another's ladders I think there's a hippie around that, but we need to help each other and I think just to consistency in her practice She just. A hundred resonated. We've never talked about and I've never never told her like. Religious of whatever it was just a form of judgement that I had. An judgment comes from when you're not in the place where you feel that you're not doing enough for you. Just don't feel right about your spirituality your web, right. So for me. It's a now at the stage where I think that Oh built a always habits have built this relationship with little bit more meaningful than deeper than it was a year prior and I think this stage where I can start saying this and start incorporating this into my last little wave that actually resonates with me and has meaning to me, not just. Well all do it because she does it or Yeah, I don't know It doesn't burn some. It doesn't feel that I'm being too religious. I involved from that kind of narrative. I think with. The morning. Work on your capacity. The greater that space opens up. Elect gives you more opportunities to connect with him I. Think At least that's what I've learnt so far with this series and being very intentional, and that's the other thing right like I want to have an intentional new around this and I'm hoping that further communicates to me the power being intentional with your Neil. Honest about that is the biggest biggest lesson I've learned this through throughout the series in one in Charlotte take with me for the rest of my life power of having. Intentions to bright and I I think this will hopefully will be. will come through, and what will be interesting. Is that in I am stamping the will of God? The name of God onto every action I do you know? How will I better purify that intention how I better purified that act you know, what will it allow me to consider anything? This is GonNa be an immediate thing. I don't think it's like Bismillah, Herman or human, then all of a sudden my whole. Framework in my understanding of this action has changed or whatever I think that it builds up because morning you seek to go seek got the more you find Gordon. Hopefully, the more I. Got Gotten each act, the more I will find him and and. And what I can do with that act. To have a greeter faculty or if that makes sense so it. Is just such A. It's a I that is very beautiful and that we are constantly encouraged her site I. Think Ed's The prophet. Mohammad Khatami. That anyone who recites Bismillah will record four thousand virtues for him for each letter forgive four thousands of his sin. So I need that. I think we all need that if Tiny's in the buildup. We think they're really having effect, but really a cordless to be blind. and hopefully you with reciting at this spurs hopefully that blindness also decreases right and and God consciousness increases an shaped snus. Gu's way slowly, but surely inshallah

Reverse-Engineering the Impact of the British Establishment on Muslims

"Welcome to the team podcast brought to you by the Muslim, vibe. I'm hosting possum. And this I'm Rushton in my introduction because the root. Team members of Muslim vibe team and other associated people in the office are not happy about the fact that I'm recording this for whatever reason. So I'M GONNA keep it brief. I'm joined this week by William Burroughs who is a London based research in sociology. He looks at how young Muslims in Europe and North America, navigate, race, class and gender barriers from a D., colonial and restorative perspective. That right I'm. Just reading off his website. William is a an individual who has. Countries the Muslim vitamin the posses made assume videos for us. I'm going to Lincoln description. We talk about them at all the beginning. We also talk in the podcast about white privilege and the current academic project that he's working on. which kind of looks at reverse engineering? What the British establishment has done to Muslims, and how people are able to, and have successfully on a fullback and space themselves. I'm quite a wide ranging discussion I'm hope you enjoy it. Without further ado, because of the rude people in the office to and not allowing me to speak too much on this. Sound policeman. Harris Michael Mercedes with William. William Thank. You thank you for for joining me on this podcast so I guess some people may be familiar with your face that watching this because we've done what you produced a series of of committing documentaries for us. Around some random topics. I'm trying to think back to how it all came together. So I think you got in touch with US maybe a couple of years ago. And and you had at the time I think we shed one of your videos which around? was like this. Robot version of the of the Muslim influence. Oh, yeah, that was Yeah, what working? I haven't seen that because I. Think it's hard to actually. They got that video struggle to find him for it last. What was that? So basically, it was an experiment in the sense that. You know if I can put things this way Assessor Gist, which is my job. My job is to understand. Why do people do certain things and? It's basically like being a psychologist before crowds for movements trends. But at the same time when I started my mic, my studies I as a Muslim academic. There was something that for me like a religious duty. 'cause you know for example if I talk about the topic. Is Between fifteen thousand and twenty thousand words, a chapter of my book or Article but not everyone has the time to re this and necessarily understand will jog on and stuff so I i. consider you know known as? That's minorities. Jala is not valid until it shed. And you know so. How my question for the DOT words. How do I make it? These topics complex topics accessible for most people, and then I got inspired by. Keynote these like age a-plus videos. And I thought yeah, let's try to do some videos. In a similar way, a very short format with like culture, popular references and stuff, but also did some fictions individual. You mentioned actually was one of these experiments. Where basically it's a it's a stop in fiction where I imagine. What if all these influences that we see on Instagram Youtube? There were actually robots designed by Google facebook a for Muslims to abide by the government's guidelines, so that was the NC. How people would respond to such narrative so this. Would you actually I play like a scientist and? A friend of plays like a robot actuaries ten still out for three minutes, and we use like google voice from Google, translate to for the speech and. It was. I felt like when video came out. It definitely started conversations I'm sure it ruffled a few feathers, but also got people thinking and people talking which I'm sure was your kind of Ame behind that in some sense, and then also and I'll probably try and put a link to all the different video that we discussed in this in the in the description, but does also A. Series. That we did on the most imbibed. Within that we, so we sat down. We kind of Map Tau different conversation topics. We wanted to discuss so things like politics white privilege I was actually another one and look at my note masculinity. An. What was that journey like? Because again I the the kind of brief I. Guess We gave to you is that we want? To have pieces on this one conversations to be had around this, but we don't want him to be kind of light. We WanNa go quite deep, and obviously with your kind of academic background as well. We want to really be able to get hawk. Get to the heart of these conversations. And and I think we kind of did that like that. I remember the the white privilege episode was yourself and Two or three other white Muslims that you had that interview. I'd that will combat I believe as well I they were kind of unpacking and exploring in discussing direction, relative privilege, and whatever else and. It's interesting because there was it was very feedback that one person was asking for example why there was only white people on the documentary on the on the mini documentary that we produced. And I guess what was that whole Jenny like like off of the different mini documentary that we wanNA marriage as well. What was your favorite to record in research and and I think you know although these topics are very important for me. Because all of these topics were more or less part of my journey, not only it's not only topics I research in the university this topics that are impacting on my personal life, the life of my friends, and so on and so on, and you know especially when it comes to things like a me, metoo movements who black lives matter. The problem I felt was that lots of men and lots of white Muslims you know when that people expressed that you have these like global movements, so people feel attacked and they take it personally. and. The thing is a some men and also white Muslim understand what comes from?

And let things out and release. I'm here yeah. I I wouldn't say otherwise because the have been moments, Oh my God where I have just felt this Kinda ties into the. Spiritual Habits series, but I have just felt so. Overwhelmed with how much online communication. In presence we've had to adjust to. Do to out and a first of all I'm very grateful that we live in this age I can't imagine going through pandemic and Nola having. Technology it would have been a lamont difficult, but at the same time you know You Know I. Think one of this is so new, so we don't really know what. Emotions of off feelings of. Telling us because we have to recalibrate, we have to be. Check in more with ourselves in see what exactly is the body in? Mind is telling us than what is a result of and so. There are many times where I'm experiencing something. Experiencing lowness on like I don't understand why like I'm. For, I. Don't know the just. As it relates related something very personal. Is it pandemic? Is it? What is it and so? Maybe it's just like a mix of world. That's right, but I think with the pandemic. They're kind of has an added weight to it, so it can be difficult to descend. What's going on and I know I've talked to so many people on the pandemic has really forced them to Confront many difficult emotions, many difficult experiences out myself included and in a way. It's good you know you. Can any practice so much escapism and. At the same time, it's just difficult, isn't it? It's just so many emotions. Buddy things going on, and you pretend like you're in a pandemic right? You still go when he's still on email. Still attend meetings. He's still perform as if this is flipping normality Say Yes just genuinely. How is everyone You know I have a lot of thought votes on what the future is going to hold and and how how we're GONNA have to. reframe. For the new realities that are going to be experiencing going full now As including the consequences of the pandemic but I am always hesitant to share a here just because. I don't know what your US Snyder. Know what your mind is I don't know with how you feeling I don't want to just. Be like well. This is how it's GonNa. Go out on our out have had You Know I. Don't know where that came from Bay I. Is. What happens when you don't recruit them? Paul costs for so long I mean this is just become some sort of weird therapy session with myself, but you'll have to listen to it I try to recruit the introduction four times. I just kept saying the dumbest things I duNNO I. Transition from that I just hope everyone is safe and well as going on this so much that we're exposed to. A lot of disheartening things that were exposed to that kind of. Relates kind of I. Guess this is the transition transitions into Wapner, the twenty six virtual habit series. It's still going on But at the end I think I did. I had. Oh God honestly ten or twelve. Out At the beginning of the year. And if you should still on Instagram, you had access to the list and I would check off every time. I released episode giving updates. On the habit the lost one that I had written down was to sell off the land. And I just could not do. This was the beginning of. Now! This was mid June I wanNA. Say. and I couldn't couldn't didn't WanNa do it, and so instead of releasing a Pug 'cause I I just put it into an instagram post and Yeah basically what was happening is that. I found myself in a state of spiritual suspension like I wasn't able to move forward and I didn't want to. To put it simply like a didn't want to do this about the Lael I. The need me. It would have been so bad. The near about point would have just been well. For Twenty six, spiritual series,

"Welcome to episode Ninety Four. Congruence, the American Muslim experience we are very excited to have Mahmoud Abbas the roof on the show today and when I say we it's Preveza and and Myself Omar and sorry co host of the show. But we're super excited. We've been waiting for this episode for for a while. Now as you all know. My who roof is a NBA veteran. and he's got a lot to a lot of great things to to talk to us about. His experiences in the NBA his departure from the NBA. His experience as an American Muslim. And everything all the cool things. He's doing right now on the circuit and the big three and and helping out young kids get healthy and fit, and so on, so we're going to learn all about that. We're going to hear a little about his youth. His NBA experience his life after the NBA in the US abroad all these things I want to cover, and I am excited because my mood of the roof was a childhood hero of mine. I grew up in small town. Watching Washington play? And this is really exciting for me personally so welcome to the show brother Mahmoud. We are really excited. An Omer sorta wasted no time bearing the lead as it were It's been a minute since we've actually been on this show. We had a little bit of a hiatus. as I imagine most of. Most content providers out there just trying to sort of make the most of these sort of. Challenging Times of trying to secure people in trying to find the time in the space to record, so we are really excited and and especially grateful that ma'am. Louis was able to take the time out of his demanding busy schedule to be with us on, so thank you again as an I. Echo, everything, immerse, said not growing up in a small town so much, but you were also sort of NBA hero of mine. I came of age in the nineties when I came of age I. Mean Terms of sort of my My my my obsession with the NBA was back in the nineties I lived in Houston Texas. Texas, so you can imagine memo Ta I. Was Huge Rockets Fan huge Chemo Lodge Fan and was fortunate enough to be there when they want those back to back. Championships way back in the nineties, so certainly your era of the NBA, and as closely as we looked at looked up to a Hakeem, being a local on sort of hero of you're sort of the the other Muslim in the League and so is equally exciting, so but like I said we have a lot to sort of unpack as we like to see on the show but where we like to often like to begin is kind of your origin story so. Maybe tell us about you know Chris Jackson and his life, and you know in and you growing up in the south, and in those experiences were like yeah, and I'm really really interested in hearing first time you touch the basketball, and when you really felt at home with the ball in your hand, and all those things I'm going gonNA. I'm going to be jumping in and asking questions because as you can see, I'm pretty exciting go. Numb note will your Ford. Remind me of missing anything Actually I. Can you want to? Start with that verse. First Time. Just the basketball really was. I was nineteen years old Nights to play Vassallo. My brothers Some reason always ended up playing with. Older older guys in now. When I look back I, said you know that's that was a huge plus for me, because those are the guys issue are fast strong when you finally get to your age group. It becomes easy play. John Age because you've been playing with older gasps. But I remember one day I was outside. Central Elementary. In I was playing game twenty one and this lady. Her real name is miss. Cookie or miss asa letter. What we call him is cooking and she was strong African American women like she. She didn't man screaming at you getting on your back in those days, even spanky. At all be playing and she said listen, she said come in Chris come in. Of course you go over there and I went over there, she said listen try out. I didn't even know that right next to me in the gym. It would try elementary. Right. Of Fourth Great in. I said Miss you'RE GONNA have to ask my mother, she said. Don't worry about it just going out. And because she saw something in me when I was playing I win in. Playing Street Ball I didn't know anything about organized while I. Mean I'm taking it driven through people and I'm making my shots. Coach added me listed son. You, gotTa pass the ball. And make a long story short. My first game in elementary school I remember. This guy named Aaron Ross. I'm nervous. Right man would i. do you follow me? By the end of the game. Of the game coach was giving me ISOS telling him get out my way. I ended up with twenty one points, my first game, and just to see the crowd, and the excitement man I was like man I love this atmosphere. is feels especially a little. You a black kid coming out of the ghetto. You know, mother you. Know File Right A. Grown up in poverty surrounded by drug addiction, mother had an eighth grade education. So you're looking at something, and you get this attention from a skill that you have. And now it's dawning on you the May. This could be something. Right. This could be a way out and so that was like really for me the beginning. That moment when they were screaming and yelling. And it wasn't it wasn't. It wasn't like pure. Not like. Your College College Teammate Shaquille. It wasn't like you were this massive. You know massive Guy Hulking Guy. You're probably based. There probably saw your quickness in your your agility new shooting right that that they that they liked yeah. I was I was born with. Vast which muscles being quick and explosive, but until you meant after that moment. I began to wake up. My regimen was four o'clock in the morning. Then I would wake up at five and for years. My Mother did know this was happening. Because I'm not about down a mother her to cut it off. Work to I mean at. And so I would wait until she left I. Heard the call. Crank the not get up. Get myself written. It's still dark outset at the attack. And I decided at that age of of Nanan Jianye said man. This is what I want to become. Be The best. and. I knew that I'd have to come up with a strategy because I'm small to give myself the best opportunity to do that something. What can you do that? Nobody else or not, too. Many people don't dawn at this aid. And I, just decided man. You GotTa Get Earth.

"Salaam of. And welcome to another episode of the rogue Muslim podcast. This is a very very overdue episode. It is the final check in of the Milan series. Is like what. When did Ramona and June May. I actually don't remember it's. A mean I think this is what everyone saying all the time just blends together, and it definitely because I don't understand why the time has gone. I'm so sorry it's delayed. Things came up weighing on some things but Here we are. Of? The time recording is one thirty five am on Thursday July second twenty twenty. So it's late, and Ramadan is definitely definitely over although I hope the blessings aren't Also if I'm kind of. Speaking quite closely to my Mike will also. Relatively softly, and there may be quite a bit of disturbance. There's just loud noise going on right now. so I, apologize for that. You know I felt really guilty. I still do feel quite guilty full publishing this later than I expected to. But actually. I don't know about anyone else. I'm in the state of spiritual suspension I posted about this on my. Instrument page because. You May or may not have noticed, but I didn't upload podcast for the twenty six spiritual habit series. Which for the latest one, which was was to be doing Salat every. And I just I'm in state of spiritual suspension of don't really know how to move forward, but I'm also giving myself that time to just rest, and you know work on those habits that I had lost track of or wanted to perfect or whatever it was right I'm wanted to revisit so. Spiritual suspension and as I was re listening to everybody US CHECK INS I just felt so inspired. And I think some of this could be that you know we're not meeting regularly at most programs, or we're not having just spaces physical spaces where we can connect with one another spiritually I mean there is such a difference between being able to physically and being able to do it online But this did really help I just felt that. Oh Yeah I, am part of an there are people can talk to about this and You know it's just it's amazing. How much the blessings of Ramadan can continue with us, but at the same time. How. Because we're not as focused and intentional about spirituality. How much weaken new sites? Of God and I think that's kind of. That's always the difficult transition post from Avante because of during the month you know our world to stumps in. A to an extent right, and we and that is our focus for that is at the front of our mind. In shallow and so. You know after that we we always go back to reality so to speak, and it's up to us to change our reality up to us to change how intentional we want to be with. Continuing Spiritual efforts, and sometimes that's easier said than done sometimes. If you're in a state, spiritual suspension, the guild isolation like you know, there's a lot but Honest to God if there's anything I've learned, this year is the power of intention and. I hope that the check ins that you hear a revive your intentions revived that connection that you feel if you've lost it. If not a handle of this amazing I hope this just adds to. Your experience right now. But Yeah I just WANNA say. Now. I am so. Unbelievably thankful for the guests that participated. To all of you. I mean this episode I mean the series quite literally could not be done without you. It would just be me checking in. Fort while I wouldn't have done. It would just be boring if I just checked in myself for blonde, so it was just so insightful and inspiring and. I genuinely appreciated the level of ability, because it's not necessarily easy to just share your experiences to people. You don't know to audiences you don't know and. I just felt so connected to each and every one of your responses and. I'm so grateful for that and I know of had messages shared the swift boat with the folks that. I've had messages saying that people just felt very inspired by what you have said, and very connected to it and Sousse of conflict, and so I just can we all pray for the folks that participated in the families that they are rewarded abundantly in this life, and in the hair off made it was be accepted you know in the divine timing timing of a lot.

If you're in a state, spiritual suspension, the guild isolation like you know, there's a lot but Honest to God if there's anything I've learned, this year is the power of intention and. I hope that the check ins that you hear a revive your intentions revived that connection that you feel if you've lost it. If not a handle of this amazing I hope this just adds to.

I mean this episode I mean the series quite literally could not be done without you. It would just be me checking in. Fort while I wouldn't have done. It would just be boring if I just checked in myself for blonde, so it was just so insightful and inspiring and. I genuinely appreciated the level of ability, because it's not necessarily easy to just share your experiences to people. You don't know to audiences you don't know and. I just felt so connected to each and every one of your responses and. I'm so grateful for that and I know of had messages shared the swift boat with the folks that. I've had messages saying that people just felt very inspired by what you have said, and very connected to it and Sousse of conflict, and so I just can we all pray for the folks that participated in the families that they are rewarded abundantly in this life, and in the hair off made it was be accepted you know in the divine timing timing of a lot. I just a continually. A has ripple effects and one of those is that you can listen to the series at any point in time and still connected still learn, and still be inspired

Keeping in Check: Maintaining Spirituality in the Influencer Space (ft. Omar Shahid)

"Salaam welcomed another team via podcast brought to you by the Vibe as always I'm your host. Salim Qasim and this week I'm joined by from the Muslim influence and network. The Muslim infants networker, celebrating their third birthday. And I've known Omar for for quite a few years now. And we discuss or about to discuss I guess the general landscape of of influences and the whole space Muslim influences and representation and also I guess how. Influences can. Maintain that sincerity. We spoke a lot about sincerity. which I think is a really important point. When thinking about the the the the digital space and people growing their own platforms. And why they're doing it and whatever else? We also talk a lot about evenly. Miller who was on a previous podcast with us? I can't remember the episode number. It was called a slum in the hood. It was just a few weeks actually before the whole lockdown and Shenanigans took place. We had a fantastic conversation. Please do inside podcast. By. Yeah, so this time almost was actually on the podcast that time he came into office. This one's conducted over zoom I'm, but we didn't get much time to speak to. And delving deeper into will these topics around the influences and the burden responsibilities term I use quite in the podcast. And various other bits so yet without further ADO, here's my conversation with Oma. Consummating! I'm good very much. The Virginia nuns focused Ab. Regulations for yourself on on three years of influence network. You were not us. A few have lost track of time in Kobe, but if you. And January a jury. When the world was normal than you could be office so yeah you with. that. And we were at all about at story. I guess if people do listen back to that in check out the Compensation, we had the shed so much and shows guests like for me. These people uninfluenced should be especially in the kind of in space. But we also discussed on their the fact that we should probably have a separate compensation yourself. Because I think there's a lot to discuss generally around this space. But I staw- off with. Can you share with us with myself? Whatever a little bit of background is the to how you saw at out in Western influences I'm wet weather. The idea came from just a is the genesis of that was the funds the network? Yes so. I'm. Twenty years old colleagues on the. I've been working with influences for. Seven years now. and. It started when I was. Using my. Sheet Autism who approached me and said you know what we don't want to us. Seem that used to be a journalist and use? Oh, Amid if we have some insights into what we're trying to do. So I, said you know what I don't know anything about influence. A management I didn't know what to do. I didn't know what to advise you, but you know what s give it a shot. Silently? We started with them some. In music, the sheet industry. Led to another working with a comedian photographer. You and then someone in school it's. And the previous manage people like cottage city can. Become Allah talked about. cross poss with managing advisers are not. The. Is and what? What specifically is your role? I guess in order the because I can imagine what it is now would be very different when it's not is How how did that come to beats it to be in the place that you guys aren't now because I think. We'll get onto about some of the some of the campaigns, and whatever else now you guys. What would some sizable? Brands and I think on the Rubicon mangoes took my head I. Believe Prime off I could be wrong. Yeah like huge huge names, and and you guys full front of kind of working with them and influences in doing campaigns. How did it will stop? What trump to even want WANNA. Get involved in this space. Yes, I was working with influences story people when I was working at a charity. I'm my business on a safe and we actually worked to name. She wants a campaign together and off to the campaign will be realizes up is actually no one to represent. These guys know into the the cough to them. That will being. No one to think about the future and it's kind of like wild wild west. It's no one nobody really knows what they're doing. Just kind of screwing industry that nobody knows what's what's going on,

And then we'll see you'll notice How just flows into the next one, which is gonNa be to read a spiritual book? How that also has just floated in quite well with the previous habits because of the book I'm reading but you have to tune in for that episode. humour about it. I don't hijacked this one by talking about that one, but. Yeah I really thoroughly enjoy this I learned a lot. I spent time doing the her. and. Yeah just. Share in it. So I started off, it was the intention was obviously spend more time in nature without was going for walks or runs or spending time in the garden and also Like I mentioned in the pre checking I'd also really gotten into gardening recently and. So, yeah, it discussed. Ended up being more on the gardening, aspects of it and I thoroughly thoroughly enjoyed it first of all when I. Typically what I'm doing anything that doesn't require.

Take that Opportunity, some always something on, and so if I'm gardening I'm listening to something if or from for run definite. But this time when I was guard thing I found that there were many times where I just thought care like I just wanted to speak with my plants. I wanted to do the allow whilst planting in gardening in It was just so relaxing. It was so nice to not nothing about technology. Spend time away from it really again intentionally and just get meeting lost in the process and in love process like I'm obsessed with knowing different likes of about different soils. What a housewife can get damaged, but how you can also provide nutrition to the soils how you should be talking to your plants, because they hear they listen, and they they get thrive of. Talking to them, it was Kinda Weird, because my neighbors were outside in sometimes just be eating breakfast, talking to my plants, but remained Ukrainian. How you should name your plants this I learnt from Geneva lever like ages ago, but it stuck with being. You should name your plants. And I really appreciate it because in naming I connected to it more like they really became my by babies of that's not as they take. Your plans is taken care of babies I. Don't like that analogy because it's just not true but. They just became so precious to me.

It's broken in the roots are allowed to form a minute blossomed and it just. Made me. Really appreciate how much God really wants us to thrive for. God isn't a vindictive one and wants you to. Just you know it's not like Oh. You do something bad for God God wants you tweet polished, and you must, if worst upon worthless.

Festival time of swear swore in a long time. Because that whole. No swearing thing really has worked and force when I swear for the first time again. It's on cost great so anyway I. Use a combat for sleep stories because it so good I my bring the minute. I hit my bed. It just way that's when it wakes up in. egis gets so distracted in I just spiraling thoughts and stuff. Or things I wanNA, do or whatever so I find that using the COM APP to listen to the sleep stories specifically one sleep story by Stephen Fry. It's so helpful you do have to pay for. Some of them, but they do have a few options so i. just use that and yeah. I find that very soothing it. You try and keep track of what he's saying in the story and you just lose track, and you end up falling asleep, so it's really amazing. anyways, so I didn't use updated. Do some guided meditations and I like those, but the thing with me was. They can often quite long so i. would just an and this is the thing in the pasta done them in I. Find Them Sober Woman because they're like twenty minutes long I, I can't focus for that. Long I I just lose, and I have to force myself to feel a sense of peace which I don't like. Expend a lot of. And fought trying to force myself, so I'm not actually present in actually. Embracing. What Meditation can bring for you so? That was possible that until this I just focused in for about.

Its hands up towards the sky and saying oh Allah we are but very small among all the creatures we cannot survive without die. Grace please bestow upon US sustenance and do not punish us because of the sins of human beings please send down the reins so that trees can grow farms become green in grains become available and we have our food to eat prophet. Sulaiman knew the language of all animals. He told his people let us go home. The prayer of this end is enough. It then rain too heavily in all the land became green and productive. The end is an intelligent creature. Warm days it collects and stores grain inside the hulls. It knows that during wet and cold months it would not be able to go out to search for food for fear that grain may start growing because of wetness it splits it into two or more pieces at times during Moonlit nights it brings the split grains out of the stores for drying and preservation against decay. The holes under the ground are made very carefully and covered with shelter to prevent the rain water from getting inside the holes the end unlike the other animals can lift a burden twice. Its own weight. It is not a selfish creature. When aunt finds some store of food grains it runs up to its group takes its fellow ants to that place. It shows everyone of them. Its own find of this door. The always behave in this manner. They work in live in cooperation with each other. This shows how the aunt works for the group and how each of them fulfills the needs in livelihood of its fellow beings how shameful it is for a man who has no regard for another man who has no concern for his fellow human beings who could be starving because of want of food. Once while Prophet Sulaiman was traveling together with hosts of men. Gin and birds. They reached valley events. When the chief of these ants witnessed the pomp and the glory with which Prophet Sulaiman and his companions were approaching toward it. He warned all the answers to get into their holes lest they got trampled and crushed unknowingly by the approaching men and Jinn Prophet. Sulaiman smiled at. This warning sounded by the ants chief and ordered his companions to wait till the aunts went inside their holes. None of us should hurt any aunt while passing over their land. He said it said that Prophet Sulaiman addressed the chief of the aunts. And Said How could my people hurt you or your fellow ants when they are floating through air? Don't you know that I am a messenger of God and would never act unfairly? The chief of the ants replied o Messenger of God my cautioning. The ants was not for any hurt that they would suffer but to prevent them getting stray and forgetting the glory of God after seeing year pomp. And show there is a deep meaning. In this event it shows that even the most humble and smallest of creatures has been endowed with the necessary wisdom to live safely and avoid being hurt as far as possible. It also shows how even a small end does have the natural understanding of the true position of Allah. It imparts a lesson. That one should not forget the true might and glory of Allah when one experiences a great power and dignity of any creature in this world thus an aunt is one of the most wonderful small creatures in this World Surinam L. The end in the holy current is a chapter named after this creature over one thousand three hundred years ago. Imam Ali was giving a sermon in Kufa. In which he was describing the beauties of creation in various forms of life he was referring to small creatures in asking men to study. How God made them so small yet so sturdy strong he described the end in these words. Look at an end. How tiny is its body? And how delicate features it is such a small creature that it often escapes the eye and few people care to attach any importance to it. Among the living beings found on this earth. Look at it and study its ways of life how it crawls how it attacks its food how it lifts a grain so many times heavier than its body carries it to its whole how it stores grains and how in summer it gathers in stocks food for

Some of the they discuss this and they said how Schon can cause a physical impact. Shaddad can home you physically? But even his west West and He's whispers and the problem is that that causes us also being touched by shape which can need to as what happened with the you. Any Center. AH punishment either but he became repulsive to people. They don't WanNa see him or hear. So we we spoke about Shield Danny You know he classified the site in which it narrates that They will to companion so these are the the the two people I said. There was the wife of a Ubani Sadda- But also two companions that he had two people that did keep in touch with him and one of them said that you. Salaam he must have committed a really bad said he must have done. Something really displeasing to a loss of hand with full loss of hunting with the honor to afflicting with what he's going through the other person who who had this he went and told this to you and this made him very sad and so he's going through this situation with you know he's got this illness he's been left by people all of this and now he has this this makes him feel even less and he goes to relieve himself and his wife used to hold his hand and help him and on his way back unless hunter without a inspired him and to Strike his foot and we'll to began to flow and when you He used that water to cleanse himself. He'd be restored back to health so much. So that in some of the narrations it says that his wife she sold him as she didn't recognize she was looking for her husband. She sees mine. She doesn't recognize him and he says this is me this is are you ready set up. And he had returned back to is healthy He's healthy self heavily now. How long did that go on for? I've mentioned this in a few minutes but this is different narration. Some say seven years some say thirteen years some say eighteen years. There's one says fouteen but the the most you know all the more common almost but the more common opinions I found with thirteen or eighteen. Thirteen or eighteen. Years you buddy. Saddam was in the state that he was in in Charlotte in Charlotte. Leaving this situation that we find ourselves in many many of the people that have cooled virus and having another in an outfit within five seven fourteen days in Charlotte not more than And the the the effects are no way like what we describe. Anybody went through But in Chama after bites it's over for many as we know you know most allies with except the Michaud had the you. Enter them into Bosa in Shaw You set up this. The suffering of his. It went on for years over a decade according to the majority of GonNa unless with added that gave him well fulsome so off the what he'd gone through off the what happened with returned to him. He's family a lesson with the return to him gave him wealth and he once again became wealthy and this was awful years of a USA. Saddam being patient and a you Alyssa being steadfast in worshiping a loss on some of the some of the lessons that we can take from his story festival that patients and not wish it was so beloved. Awesome Hollywood island unless one hundred crazy Many times in the car. One of the lessons that we can take from this is that these are the true real role models for us so With so cool up An children are cool up in looking at and following the lives of people On this planet whether they're in this country on doesn't might just people who really we shouldn't we shouldn't follow their lives. We should know about their lives. Because there's there's no later in unfortunately And people like this like a you by Saddam. They are role models without appraises. His patients would you know who the unless without his is. We found him. Being patients must without testifies to the fact that he was patient meaning. He didn't say a bad thing he didn't think about that. He focused on worshiping a loss of handle at the Anna asking less of handle it to relieve hoping to relieve his suffering and the prophets were given special powers and abilities to kill themselves or other people as another Nessin that we take from this This story if he could he would kill himself. But when the prophets in messages perform miracles or killed people. Did these things. These were things that loss. Hanno with Ireland made happen. It's not something that they could do of themselves. And so even now in the Times that we live we know that the only one the we should be timing too is with. We should turn to him to solve our problems all suffering anything that window looking for any hopes Any dreams that we have the only one that can realize there is a lesson harmless. Nobody else And that's that's such a powerful lesson from this story that if a loss of Hannibal Donnas prophets and messengers had to be patient and worship and made to him. Is that anything or anyone else that we can turn to now. That is going to help us. No because if such a thing they would've told us about that but there isn't the only one the only thing that we can turn to in any time is a muscle and that's why I said at the beginning everything's changed but nothing's changed because these facts have always been the case So he mentioned shape on had harmed and so we he Shift the He talks about how he presents the reality he presents the fact that Chaban had done this team. But that's not to make an excuse and say you know I might for us that we may commit sins and say well. It wasn't me my shape on made me do it now. Okay Tapper Yala. I may talk.

The Wisdom of Solitude: Lessons from the Lives of the Prophets

"We look at the lives of the prophets to see what we can learn from something. We're supposed to do all the time. Anyway I something that lesson hunting with the other. He wants us to do. That's why he sa- panel with the honor. His put their stories in on We have more detail about them in the highly. And so I wanted to begin by looking at the life of a Ubani Saddam when he says what are you ignore? The Obama who anemia sunny. A little while under Rohani And mentioned a you when he cool to his Lord Indeed. Adversity has touched me. And you are the most messy full Over the muscle said you by the Senate on this Great Prophet of Los Apparently Data. Who many of us have heard of many people love it? They love him so much that they named their children off to the U. Many many a UBIQUONOL massage school. It's families what was so great about this prophet. And what lessons can we take from his life now in in the Times that we're in this situation of where without tells us here in the NBA? He called on a loss of Hanoi Thailand and mentioned a you when he called his Lord. Indeed adversity has touched me. So you buddy. Saddam he says to us about Sapan Donna in Nima Sunny Doda. That has afflicted me something by this happened to me. Then also handle the data in the next Jeopardize the Hoof Akasha abby he indoor The Dallas so we responded to him and removed what afflicted him of adversity will add a now. Who who Miss American or Indiana where they could only live and we gave him back his family and the like there with them as mercy from us and a reminder for the worship of a law so you about this profitable east from the most beloved of creation to Those special human beings that were chosen by a lesson with due to the cleanliness of their hall due to day connection the commitment to a lesson and this great prophet. He's then tested. He's given test that. He can be Shaab that he can take because without a dozen tests. Us doesn't afflicts us with anything that we can't handle you live alone of sin in there was he had a wife. He had children. He added family. He had well he had looks. He had all these things he had a place in society and loss of handle what he tested Ubani Saga by afflicting him with a disease within a an ailment and this caused him to become repulsive to the people he's his skin was was covered in these In this disease and people when they saw him they were repulsed by his life. They didn't want to go near. And so for being this person who was wealthy family Mixed and went about his business went about society about with people as he as we do. He went from that to being somebody who no one wanted to be around. Nobody wants you to see. And he became almost completely cut off. He had His wife who remained him. And there's a evidence from That they were a couple of other people but apart from that you belie Salaam has lost that position that he had amongst you know. Just going about people mixing with them talking to them socializing with that He loses his family and he loses his wealth and of course he's lost his health. Now he doesn't in this area also says you will listen. He says to almost a Muslim. Hi Donna way you if neither a robot who anemic do. He says the. I've been afflicted with adversity. Are you ready? Salaam? Does it make donahue. He just states the fact that I've been afflicted And so powerful that sufficient that was sufficient for a loss of Hannibal at the IDA to know what he wants what he saying and a lust soprano Diana says Though that we answered he's He's plea what he wanted. Even though it's not expressly woods he wanted a lawsuit Hainan with either to alleviate his suffering to fix the situation that he was also colonel. Valla he does the Removes Fiction And obviously he spoke he cool to lessen hand with after say what he was going through with lots of. Hanno with allies names and characteristics that he was looking appeal to at that time. We chose Hamill rocking that you are the most musset full out of those who are masterful. And so this is something that you know the Alabama they often speak about the when you make and you're looking for something from a lesson planning with then use those names those attributes of the loss of Hanuman Island which which linked to the that you're asking for so if it's For example you know we want a lesson hundred dollar to help us We may talk about you. Know we And here you ballet. Salamis looking for balance you have messy upon him and alleviate suffering so he speaks about messy Hanno with either as made his Story reminded fos that no matter what where afflicted we've now specifically in these days they're also people have fallen ill and they're suffering from that. There are those people who've Suffered the loss of livelihood in the same way as Saddam did there are those people who Who are losing family members? They themselves might be fine. Themselves may have gotten better but they have lost family members. So this only things that we may be going through now that Similar to what you really. Saddam expires. a lot of the The impact the effects of the time that we're leaving in the things that we're going through Not even GONNA become a power for a while When things start to settle and the economy in companies et Cetera et CETERA. Start to get back up to speed report. What's going on? We may find a lot. More people are affected their livelihood affected more than we know now because right now he's still a time of uncertainty. So we see we will happens. What's to come but the time that we're in now And the time to come whatever time it may be cool for something which is central to the story of. Are You Ready Center? And that. His patients his sub. We'll talk about that a bit later. what does patients look like? Now in our time patients would be when we were afflicted when something's difficult Is facing us so I do know some brothers who have lost their jobs One of others. He called me yesterday and spoke to me about the fact that he's sees Joel So these people don't know that for a fact now and there's those that don't know that for sure at the moment when something like that happens. There is an inclination forms. You know in some of us for many reasons It may be because of our background. They may be because away from that when something bad happens when something difficult happens the first instinct is to turn to some of those bad things from our background so someone may tend to drugs. Someone may may tend to You know other things other things. I don't mention them in the fear that people think it's okay to time to these things Because it's not a loss without when he speaks about patients and that's why we're talking about. It's not what is patients. Look like that when these things happen when these hardships they strike then a less Hannah what the ISLA expects from us that we tend to him. that's what patients looks like. We turned to him in Dora. We to humidity bad. We tend to him in controlling our our souls and containing ourselves. No not saying not doing things which will be displeasing to handle data and some of us have and some of us. Have you know so The person that I was speaking to that was one of these big fees that my initial reaction was not a good one but not much to handle without food or she and and I reminded the Butler that we can always make you turn into a lesson on it and we should in the doer of told by his own.
