#04 Staying Woke Podcast – Accountability, Knife Crime and more…



assalamualaikum hello and welcome back to the staying woke podcast episode 4 for with a quick long-awaited yes I push away a little break between episode 3 in this episode a few things happened ah don't worry man we're back back with some amazing concept were you in charge even a shot from the Delano blood survived and came through the weeks yeah even I'm the lab in alright busy busy busy but always busy in it life is busy as Drake says I find that I'm dedicated so we're always going to find bit look if I ain't dead yeah I'm dedicated oh the date I'm dedicated cuz we're dedicated to the vision I'm sure when I would play I think conscious rams does a better job anyway go to the battery today we're gonna talk about inshallah the concept of accountability and it asked because I didn't know just ask yeah topic is a media let me give way to drivin all the cooking water a plant this just a buy enough to actually talk anyway I can't do it is a concept yeah I can't ability as a concept I think that I think that's an important concept you discuss because I reckon from us Fink as we'll discuss hopefully in in in this podcast with weeks we live in a society that's has very little accountability true and in many different ways you know in may different ways in many different forms of accountability as well and I think that's important then to discuss and understand what is accountability and how do we properly implement it in our lives and in society okay cool so then what is the can't ability so I put okay accountability for me personally is the idea all these self-consciousness that wherever you do as a person it it's just you and yourself oh it's you and other people wherever is you do with your life in any scenario the outcome and the result well I think it's better for me if what you're trying to say is that whatever you do yeah yeah whoever whoever is with just yourself yeah in the personal circumstance or with other people it has a consequence and it has an effect yeah yeah yeah okay I guess the sauce gonna say yeah so that what he said yeah so that's why I can't ability is to me now as a Muslim obviously we don't just believe in accountability in this life we believe in accountability in the next life by the way we can get to that in a in a little while we discuss but would you feel like the understanding of accountability is in our society release do you think there is an understanding or is there a lack of understanding or it was an even idea of accountability in the society I think living in the Western society which is based upon secular values which essentially means to disassociate religion or God from lawmaking and from the way that you make your own rules even like this decision whoever I eat avocados today or eat chicken yeah like even in that situation you know we're distancing we're trying to say in this is I anyway we're trying to say oh we should be deciding for ourselves okay and we should be making that decision for ourselves and we should just judge it we should judge it essentially if you look at is basically judged upon where does this thing benefit me does this thing harm me and how do I measure that right and this is the problem that a lot of people have in every day-to-day life because they're going through these conundrums of all is it really beneficial is it not beneficial it seems beneficial to me I'll do it and then five years down the line they realized oh hang on a sec you had a really perfect yeah so this is a rule issue in terms of the way that we judge what is good and what is bad and what is right and what is wrong them the decisions that we should make and so that's why I can't ability for me is really important concept to be talking about because it manifests in every single action every single thought and every decision we're making in everyday life yeah I agree sorry really hungry and I guess we always mentioned the the aya fix one we always mention that a lot constantly says oh he says it in that area but I'm pretty sure that the concept of continuity is passed in many ayats in the Quran but what law says that you could not choose for yourself we would do because you don't know what's right and wrong essentially when he says that Lasseter crochet and so long gaya and may be the case something is good free might be the case a you lost something is bad for you and Allah knows and you know know so like you said this idea from it's some idea is that is a publicize quite a lot of it in terms of a lot of people know this ayat because it's made into those different quotes so every years a on a personal sense I reckon it gives a lot of people a lot of personal hope in terms of like when they're going through certain personal struggles everything that makes you feel okay look I need to trust was part I was planning everything but in this situation it has a it has a different kind of connotation which is more of the fact that look Allah spent on and knows what is good and what is bad and so therefore it's not just about trusting Tom wanted to what you see is benefit harm Oh because essentially a lot of hands are knows the true benefit and you know the true harm so for a subjective mind to look at something and say oh I think that's beneficial beneficial so I'm gonna do it Allah destroys an idea makes it seem quite you know harmful to the person itself because he says that it may be bad for you and that's why it's important for us is it develop that the peaceful way that people look at is and say oh it's quite publicized as well as that we see the pixel last panelist is a picture obviously other images are made from millions and millions of little pixels ooh individual dots of color and we're just seeing that dot of color by loss from Tala he has the whole picture because he has with him the local my food which is essentially the book which in which he's written of thing that will happen trouble everything that has happened the tablet exactly and so therefore yeah so in that we do need to be trusting of Allah so Allah in terms of that he knows what is good and bad but not just like saying yes I trust you I was gonna leave it up to him and I'm just gonna let no even happen we've got also understand that that then manifests into the way that we think and I think that thinking in terms of halal and Haram is very important and all I mean by this is I see I think that a lot of people throw around halal and Haram a lot in terms of like just saying this is Haram this is halal this hell up and I don't think that for many of the specially the fig issues in terms of the everyday kind of like decisions that we're making a lot of them are not exactly clear cut as this is how wow this is Haram right so this is why a lot from Thailand the promise or selling in hadith and everything they teach us if you look at the hadith and look at the way the profits are Salome used to respond to and when people used to do something wrong and he would approach them he wouldn't necessarily just go to them and say this is completely wrong you know most of the time you would be more of questioning them and getting to think about why is it that that thing is wrong or trying to explain to them through some other means as to why this might be wrong whereas might be like wow you're right you know and so therefore it's important then that we have that knowledge of you know we have the basic knowledge of Islam and of the Quran of hadith so that when we come to these decisions in everyday life we're thinking in terms of halal and Haram OSHA's which means we're thinking in terms of what does a lot of fun teller like or what does the last concern I dislike and I guess and what has he decreed which is right and why is it decreed which is wrong hmm and then in that I can make a decision as to whether this thing that I want to do but if it is correctly whether it is bad for me and I guess that that's a fantastic alternative to just having a very shallow benefit and harm way of life because essentially I lost panchalas one who is in our scenarios in Islam he's the one who's driving our life he's one telling us how to live it and he is the best of Planets but anyway that's that that's in terms of actions and in terms of understanding what's wrong on wrong now of course with actions calm accountability so is there any let's talk about knife crime actually knife crime is the biggest example where accountability you say is they say missing concept there is no grounded for can't ability because essentially you've got thousands or hundreds at least year hundreds of studies that happen every single year and the issue seems that people think the issues with the knife or the discussions about the knife it's always a it's even like in America with the gun crimes they're always just talking about yeah all the guns and gun laws we need to do on Trump stories when Trump said oh we need to arm teachers yeah you know and here's a series of other and you see the same kind of trend off of food that people are discussing the object and not the idea the object could be so goddamn bad you know a knife could be used to I don't know cook you cook so you know that could be useful very useful you know anything exactly a gun can be used for a good thing you know for hunting or whatever for just you know as a hobby to shoot whatever but the is the idea that people carry that's what needs to be discussed and in this case it's accountability why doesn't individual why does a 16 17 year old or however old the person is feel like he can or she can go and stab someone and feel that they can get away with it without feeling any any any any you know any and he was the word and he any shame or shame and he gets guilt yes perfect world there are they don't feel any guilt they don't feel any sense of accountability they don't feel like they need to answer to anyone you know what is another case in I think when it comes to knife craft specifically the Z I think this this doesn't just is not specific obviously to knife crime or gun crime or these little violent I think these this is this can be placed into many different areas of many different crimes whether it's robbery or even like just hitting someone or you know even the way you treat people just society generally yeah you know it comes into all of that right but I think when it comes to specific let's talk about extreme example like life crime which we've seen a massive epidemic or recently especially in like London area there's been so many stabbings every single day we're hearing about difference that being there but people who are quite close to us as well like it doesn't quite know loads of people so many people who haven't heard about okay it's been a stabbing in this area renamed a to my house and then I hear someone or get out with my friends but that was my that was my cousin with you know so paralyzed like it's a it's so close to home right so what because we got to talk about this we've got a talker passed off days there's real one and I think that's Linda I can't really comes into to cue parts with that it comes with the person themselves how they felt like I can stab this person okay so personally there is no consequences in terms of they're not thinking about an afterlife they're not thinking about you know the accountability of their Lord first thing but secondly they're not also not thinking about the accountability of the government upon them because essentially there isn't much accountability you know jails are actually glorified in in European exactly first you get respect for it in gang culture but also they they force a lot of people we see you are understand some of the deep-rooted causes of why someone goes towards killing someone right and these people generally they come from very broken homes in terms of like you know they they their father is not is non-existent in their lives we're open so they haven't had a proper family structure you know then they bullied at school or they don't fit into these crowds and all fit into that crowd then they got pushed into this crowd generally they come from very poor areas learning date day where there seems as though there's no way out exactly so the crime or the gang gangs they offer them a route to making a money quit book here exactly answer be have it have an acceptance and to maybe come out of that poverty right and so it's really damaging it's a cycle right but you've got all these factors and then you live in areas which aren't safe you know there aren't properly regulated they aren't properly you know like the police they don't the police are just stopping every black man everywhere you know so so the the people in poor areas don't like we feel like the police that the play they can trust the police you know who are meant to be trusted and protected in their community and protecting the communities because the police are just stereotyping everyone and their you know so it's like you've got all these different problems and then on top of that a main thing which stops someone even if you had all those problems something which might stop someone from doing an action if they have all these broken background yeah is the fact that well there's a consequence yeah exactly and I think you're right in terms of we can't look at any issue on your problem in isolation there's there's always different factors that lead up to the issue becoming an issue and in this case like you said I think in there is there's a huge discussion that that needs to be had in terms of why is it that most of these people are people that commit knife crimes or any type of crimes come from broken homes that come from a very poor background you know where is the role of the establishment resolved the government to you know pump money into these areas well as Josie will say record Jessie and Q thank you stupid amount under our name rich and this is ridiculous in terms of like the you can see the amount of funding in terms of like just to the upkeep of the of the public parks pathways and everything there is you see everything is so pristine and nice to make sure that those people who live in that area who yes they're rich but they're also over a lot of businesses and they're also pumping a lot of money into the telling me exactly so they're directly benefiting the government that's a main link to look why is it that those areas are getting loads of funding and make sure that their streets are nice and clean and everything when in like other areas like where we live you've got so much I we see so much homelessness look it's also called this week some a lot is the is the prime example of an area that's been neglected why is it that you know it's still not even really so much talk about so much expose of look at the direct links that you have of whom we talk about on another episode we were talking about the way that the the Celotex the cut is owned by the CEO of the Sailor Tech students which is the company which made the cladding on the building you're best friends with the Home Secretary something like that so it's like you know you can see and then there are the landlord's of all the different houses of that area there all the MPS of that area so those the you know they have a vested interest in like the end of day there's no accountability even for them right even for those MPs in everyone there should be accountability for the people ruling the country making the laws as well but there's no accountability for demos so therefore they feel like yes I can get away with this I can get away with cheaply making some block of flats so that even if it does go up and playing background for did and level one dies this was another because my name is not anyway right here I still get my money I'm still getting support from the government you know like all of this stuff and then and then look at Theresa May and the government like the bodies of the government yeah you might have some poor areas which I wish I'll speak in August a part essentially there's not much being said in terms of there's nothing being done against them like this she still just basically got away with you know yeah we'll do what she does yeah and I guess again there's this equates yeah clicked this this is where the the concept of accountability really kicks in and we see there is a lack of ignorant indifferent indifferent on different levels now we're talking about accountability on for for our society in terms of knife crime as an example yeah but like we said now we just pushed it out to the government and we see that there's no countries for them and subhanAllah we know in Islam accountability isn't only in the Indiana countries is not only only in the afterlife we know for example on a government level the the Islamic ruler he is not able to do what he feels like and he is accountable to a certain body which is named Mohammed on him ddddd court of justice who actually can overpower him who had the power to overthrow him if he steps out of line and he commits I don't know or if he is you know if he's if he is doing something which is shadow which is not shadow reason to do to remove him from power the demon in the coop injustice in Islam has the power to remove the Islamic leader from power which we don't see both so one more example I will hop up when he was when he was the leader of the Muslims you know him that was when he was window nice to have meters over here over Korea these have meetings and the during the night and the candles will be on and one day will stop talking about almost a fez they was turned the candle off and then he would they say to him yeah Ben we need my turn in the candle of he'll say because this is the omens resources and this is not for me to use where is that country taken on a government level were today it doesn't exist and we see her you know it causes many more much more damage than just to the person because you know the persons are hurt or lost France Allah and essentially he might all his afterlife but in that within that same discussion that person's ruin on people's lives I think was really important to point out there is the way that we look at it merely what many like a worker or an ally of learn when lost man and obviously they were have another you know the full falafel should that to what I thought I said that who who who had said that the earth were on the correct method yeah so you look at them and we look at the way they ruled and even with things that seem so menu such as the drop of a wax of candle candle light right they were so careful because for two reasons right first thing is that they had the accountability in themselves understood the accountability from our sponsor Allah they understood that last part Allah will question every single thing I do every decision I make every single you know every single drop of wax that drops from that candle last plant a little question that and say that drop of wax was from the woman metaphor was from the Alma's money okay so why were you talking about the pros know my falafel is when when you were using the almost money okay even when it comes to little things like that so that's the first thing the second thing is that they had the backing of the accountability of the state that they ran as well the fact that the people could account them yep so I the Reeb utiful story that I read and and it made me tear up rad and I was thinking about why it specifically didn't make me tear up and I think it's because I I just gained such a beautiful appreciation for the way that Omaha Bob as a leader was so sincere in in in his leadership and how he understood accountability there was during his rule obviously he expanded the Islamic state quite far in and in the Lance knew and so in Egypt say he was in Medina and in Egypt amaura below us was the valley the the leader of Egypt I think his son they had a a slave right and they did some racing wasn't my class I'm horse racing whoever the slave basically beat him in the race and after the race I would ask his son went to the slave and said how dare you beat me you know I am the son another they'll ask the leader of this land how dare you beat me in here now this slave imagine obviously like the the status of a slave in societies generally lowered anyway right like in terms of the way that we think of them we think of that kind of school occultation yeah and he was he was also black so in terms of Justin in the way that society even back in the day the way that they just viewed people of darker color they already viewed them in a lower position imagine he had everything going against him yeah he was a slave he was black here he was the slave of the the masters slave as well says like he had no rights because he was from you know from the noble family slave right he took a camel and he rolled all the way to Medina to account on a rock hooked up the Emil mcmean of the entire state which was massive at this time yeah he went to him and said look I haven't mistreated I have been hit okay unjustly all on her table he hold him up in a in a in a little house he said you stay here for about what however it long it takes to ride a camel all the way from Egypt to like about a month or so I've heard yeah so he gave him a house and everything he paid for his every Theus expenses and he I don't know ask and his son he said you need to come to Medina to be accounted so they came and he and he asked them what happened and they said yet this is what happened to the son he hit the slave and he said he gave a whip to the slave and he said you can lash his son and I'm lost well I said but why me I think the slaves had told us why why otherwise he's hidden him and I woke up Bob said it was in his name that you were hip so the he gets the way possible now the thing is is that look it's confusing right as to what why why is even why is he making him get in here but it is such accountability in terms of he he needs to set the example straight right that even the fact that his name was used as a noble noble person that society the fact that his name was used to do this action there would be it will also be accounted for you know in the under the state and I think was so beautiful why I teared up of the story and Hobbes had this one thing and he said when the slave asked him he said sorry after after all this everything happened he said to over us and his son he's hurt a man how can you enslave a man that was born free all right I just said a beautiful statement subhanAllah that you know actually the act of freeing the slave is such a beautiful thing in terms it is such a rewarding thing sorry you know it's Lama she came to get rid of slavery in terms of especially the way that it was manifesting in the mighty and it gave rights to the slaves yeah I don't think I think the white slavers a lot connotations to what our slavery slavery so yeah you know Spheeris personally I don't only use the word sleep yeah door knob then he's in in in Arabic does not mean a slave according to you know American history it's a social very very different understanding of reality that was yeah it was a social class anyway so the discussion we had another time but it's totally different a formal listening and in Islam is not a slave to in sari and in the same way that America there's no had slaves is a very very it's a complete different universe of understanding definitely but even so Islam came to give rights to them and to and to make sure that scheme freeing them is one of the most rewarding things and anyway what was so beautiful to me is the fact that I'm gonna kabob the Emir yeah this is the head of the state like who in this who in this country can just go up to Theresa May and just say I am calling you you go up near the houses of buzzer Bobby you're not really able to down the street you get shot because we got home guns didn't man in it like you claim I'm gonna need him down the street right well this is the this is the beauty of Islam is that that slave you could cut he came all the way from Egypt to Medina to count him personally and say what are you doing for me you know I am a citizen under your state Alice Fontana allows me to account you yeah you know and the fact that uncle table as a Muslim as someone sincere in Islam has that personal accountability as well he knows that he's gonna be questioned and I think that's that's what's so beautiful about accountability yes it brings to account you have to account yourself and you alive when I was to account you as much I guess I can't be today and it's been kind of washed down to this personal level but like like like we just discussed son like you said you know I told the story of our banana stand on hot tub and the Sun with us I can't ability in Islam it spreads to different levels of society to the government to the individual to the community you know and it's a very very holistic understanding of accountability and I guess some of my ask all but you know it's it stood a person stabbing the person students is stabbed but like we said at the start exactly things don't happen in a vacuum you can't look at any event or any action in a vacuum because different factors lead up to certain actions being done and the this story is actually kind of make you appreciate how Islam deals with the issue from top to bottom you know if the government is is due on the only concept of accountability then the people automatically I do upon the concept of accountability and once one adopts Islam in his heart as well then they have the understanding of the accountability of the self as well exactly how do you have it from both directions now like if you can imagine society that's built upon what which was the case under hot tub for example no he said it's not you let's go upon an idea one area inaudible a mashita no no Jim and Amy Alan Ben and Laura they don't know what Allah is watching that one area bro can just turn a whole society around because the issue that we find with Allah I'm not to the wall of a knife crime because it's very very cool yes it even it says we see it yeah Jerry we see in London you know did the issue that people have with with knife crime on a personal level yeah like I said I want to make it clear that knife cramming itself the people can make knife knife crimes you can't just look at them in isolation and blame them and the knife because the knife is no harm to yourself the action is Haram anyway people don't have the idea even Muslims cuz this is bonus a lot mostly playing with a knife crime of the knife crime unfortunately living in the society they kind of forget that accountability goes past this life because but I've heard the first person people say as long as I get away in their terms in no terms I know as long as the get away from Fed then I'm cool as long as they great no relation as long as long as I get away from police then I'm fine how dangerous is that in Dagenham there was a study done here this this made me feel disgusting to study done with non Batman and non Batman said they could get way we drink from the police they would happen it it right right yeah and miss the thing the the issue of knife crime yes it is the most prominent one right now it's the most common one in terms of where highlights the lack of accountability but there are many issues where accountability as a concept is may extend it doesn't exist and as we see look we're gonna see this over and over again as we as you're gonna see more you know devastating results because this idea lacks because people don't have to understand in that life it's not just about you know this life it goes positive yeah exactly I'm at the end of the day last part Allah on the day of judgment will bring your entire life in front of you and this is not a judgment about we just I say some accountability where your good deeds and your bodies we wait you know it's like this life is all about accountability and and and you know actually when you saying before about how about the ayah they don't know you look a look at which one the one wooden bed or the you know oh did you know know the laws watching exactly well we know the famous hadith him about where the Jibril ELISA Lam listen he comes to the prophet sawas Allah and how I see it when he comes dressed in all white and beer and he comes as basically he came as in very pristine clothes yeah and the thing is that he was not known in the area so everyone knew that he must have been a traveler mmm but they're like how did this man travel because the whole desert and not get a single dust on his clothes got such white wire go exactly so he can see for Salem and he asked I asked three questions and I don't want all of all of them but he asked about what is Islam what is inside know it was Islam where is something where is he man where's Islam was a man and there was a son and a son is obviously the highest level of a believer can be so you can be a Muslim what's the meal that you submit to Allah span Ta'ala essentially means you've taken to jihad ah the next level well that is a mock min is when you have attained Iman and level above that which is the highest level is being enough sin when you finish in the time direction exactly I didn't have a direct meaning when she leave people English is quite limited so translated Arabic words yeah but what did he say is perfection what do you say is a son he when you worship Allah as though you see him and when you understand the gravity of that it is accountability it is accountability because it is all about you worship Allah as though you see him is like for example when when I know that my mom doesn't like me doing something yeah I for example I don't know I can't give an example I know the London let me do something I know she's when she's there I know I'm no because she's watching me and I know she's watching me in the same way a Lhasa Fontana is always watching us and though we can't see him but we worship Him as though we see him as though it is look I can see him watching me that is so beautiful and also it shows how important accountability in in everything is because Islam is not just a spiritual not a religion I hate I always say I hate my idea I'm not quite as ever because in in English religion it is very personal thing exactly and also anyone can't get religion you know if I decide today I want to worship this pillow I have created my own religious of Star Wars fing utility but I'm a Jedi you know but if I decide I want to work with this pillow today I have created the religion and anyone essentially is free to do that right but Islam is not a religion Islam has is a decree of how you should think and how you should live your life and essentially some ideology which we adopt it's something that we we say you know what I'm gonna I'm gonna adopt the fact that a lot Fontana decides every single aspect of every way that I live my life you know the way that I go to the toilet the way that I walk the way that I legislate the way that I treat people the way that I eat the way that in everything you know it's not just a bus spiritual it's not just about the way you worship mmm it's about the way that you interact with society and so therefore if if being if attend asan is the highest level that Muslim can get to then that means that the highest level there you lovers can get to is to realizes his built-in in the eyes of response Allah and the fact that he's accountable mmm thinking I think a very beautiful eye which illustrates I can't ability again yeah is that we were talking about before the podcast actually nor do we limit it on regime what I hope soon will be nested oh mama mama says well in transition when people see whether they think now so in Arabic when Allah says well observe in every level may means I swear by it so even even we says well ah this is what people who Allah well that essentially could be seen as – as Wow and Rand no no I don't saw by the didi soul know what means that that blames itself and accounts itself but no in Arabic that's actually a form of affirming that Allah is making that off so I mean what a lot spans had a sweater or something we know it is it's a grave matter disagreements that was found Allah says that his oath is how he says that means that his his promise is truth and so when I was found her swears upon something it means that way he says things in all the time you know we know that is truth firstly but also that holds great weight exactly you know exactly in this case almost hunts a lustrum I walk this this soul this Neffs which holds this concept they were talking about Llywelyn which which brings itself which you know which which accounts itself why because understands that everything it does everything it says everything it looks at a lot of handouts Allah will ask it about no I think that's quite beautiful because I think on a personal level we I think this plays into thinking about intentions and what our intentions are in terms of when we do stuff quite well because on a personal level when we're thinking we do actions every day you know we make decisions every day of things that we're doing and essentially we should be doing everything for a las Pantelis sake yeah if we are truly Muslim which means to submit to Allah spans Allah completely right – in everything that you do you do for him right let me know we need to be constantly checking our intentions and I think that I am beautifully describes that because it's the soul that blames itself the soul that realizes look I am influenced by my desires by the whispers of shaped on and I need to place in arrogance as well class to get rid of that arrogance firstly humble myself in front of my Lord and then check my intentions and I count myself and that's why cons ability comes in in in the self as Bo and and in everyday interactions because you know hamdulillah we we should talk about like the societal things we should also talk about us as individuals and how we live in our life and it brings into question brings to mind another ayah I don't know the Arabic of the ayah I know that lost patella basically says that if and when essentially when when you you come across and you have these interactions which which annoy you yeah it's basically when you come across people who annoy you response them with Salam all right yeah yeah I call wonderful areas or by the end of it yeah response Allah is showing us that look when in everyday in in your life there are always gonna be people who annoy you and who frustrate you and who and who you disagree with maybe in who you know and we're always gonna have these interactions which could lead to a lot of anger and arrogance in terms of you know the way that you interact with people and I think what what's important is that once responded Salaam so I count yourself what can you count yourself in in the way that you want to respond to that person are you responding to them with Salam for Los Portales sake firstly why are you responding to them with anger to satisfy your own desire just to get them you know I think being a beautiful quote that says would do me is account yourself before law counts you it's very simple oh my god it goes a long way it goes a long way because we do end up sometimes as individuals you know try to get things or do things to satisfy that satisfy ourselves even though we know it's wrong you know like you said in a situation where someone may you know be triggered or angry you know he might try they might try to you know get justice for himself even though it may be wrong yeah not to you so many different situations not just like you know you think it's just like people getting angry and punching someone over it's even like in so many personal situations like para la I see in myself all the time you know what I'm I'm looking at little the way I respond to you I mean like you know in the way that I'm responding to people even the way that I treat like my siblings for example sometimes they might they bit younger than me sometimes they annoy me you know and yeah they annoyed then they aren't we ain't got friends but it is better for me to be calm to be to still show them love to not let myself get frustrated and to change my tone with them you know at the end of the day it's not worth it and I need to be accounting myself constantly so that I need to become I think what we need to do is to like a practical thing that you can do is to get into the habit of accounting yourself constantly so that when you get into these situations you you're doing it straightaway you're counting yourself you're stopping yourself before you speak and I think it reminds me of Abu Bakr Allah and who he used to put stones in his mouth that under his under his tongue so that when he would wanted to say something the stones would fall out his mouth well he's feel the stones there and it would force him to think before he spoke and force him to think why am I saying why the intentions to I I have to say this should should I say it or should I just say sign there's a better thing to say silent or is there better way that I can say this you know like that's a very physical way of him like you embody an idea exactly super like he really embodies it but we're not saying everyone put flipping stones in your love life as unrealistic right but well she can get into a habit of accounting ourselves constantly and I think I think that would be really beneficial I think for me especially especially he beneficial in everyday life just understanding what I'm doing they're filling them are they groaning whistle ow I first went on a second it was but what we said accountability is a is a solution for the individual on a personal level for the society is a societal level to deal with many different issues and on the government level as we discussed you know it goes from making you a person who is cautious and considerate for what you say but other people as an individual it makes the society cautious and consider in terms way it does to each other yeah you know and on a government level it makes the government's appreciate that the responsibilities of government is accountable one of allah subhanho wa taala so it is accountability from all angles to satisfy all like any kind of cause that might cause some kind of problem and i think just sort of I think did again this highlights the important of being accountable because imagine that someone doesn't feel like he's accountable to anyone how'd that you mention is that you know and that's why you find it sometimes is the issue people don't feel like that that I was anyone yeah individually they can do anything yeah individually oh no no my level you know Sabrina were happy recently no do deaf accountable to anyone there's a breacher you know oh I said look Taylor you're on about sorry so submitter was a career 1999 very very early nineteen I believe here was one nice herbs on the general Carnaby's name you can search up they literally disrupt in and massacred the Bosnian Muslims in their thousands you know without any accountability they walked in and the UN done nothing about it so cat ability was absent if you like and that's again they did this is one of the results of the lack of accountability if they if the general himself was apparently in prison right now was accountable for felt that he was gonna be accountable he wouldn't have done such a thing we know understand that the the punishment of taking someone's life is you'll have taken away quite frankly you know and we don't we don't shy away from that because Islam deals with the issues I think an important thing to note there as well as the obviously we see so many trustees being late again so many different people today by rulers by tyrants okay and they don't feel the accountability because they aren't accounted there is no there is nobody to account them right so therefore really I think we as individuals and especially I think we were discussing last episode in term with the Sudan situation the power of social media and the power of you know having that voice in that platform and then be able to reach so many people we need to be accounting these people you know if we need to we need to be the ones who are exposing them for the patrol cities exposing them for the you know for the for the problems of the losing and understanding and exposing the the ideas which cause those problems in in those people as well should I come back yes you know we need to be to be doing it because no one else is accounting them there's no body to account them so whose content isn't it you know as we said like I think we says everybody because it is so put a powerful hadith if you see an oppression change with your hand if you can't change with your tongue if you can't hates it in your heart and that is the lowest of your mind The Hurlingham differently you know so you use your tongues people yeah and use your fingers that's action I think it's a tiger love people Damon Oh anyway yeah Zac Allah here and I think that was a great in-depth discussion about accountability is a concepts in the way it manifests in so many different ways and so many different aspects of life whether personally individually on a societal level what a government level or you know on on the level where we're thinking about the afterlife yeah and I think that we all need to be working on accounting ourselves and accounting you know and body you yeah hear each other because that's important yeah start to deal with the problems of our society yeah does that laughs Aaron felicitous episode of that this thing will put cost inshallah we'll be back soon give another episode episode 5 Sherlock make sure you
