السلام عليكم

I hope this message reaches you in these trying time.

I wanna start by asking الله to reward for all your efforts over the years. I have learned alot from your speeches and lectures about the West and it’s contradictions. I send this message to make a request:

As I understand, you have quite a lot of Knowledge on David Hume. One of David Hume’s contemporaries was Adam Smith, father of capitalism and capitalist thought. I was wondering, if it’s not too much trouble, that you could a talk/breakdown of Capitalism from the Islamic perspective. I know that many young Muslims who are studying in academic institutions find themselves confused by this topic. I know that a talk from you on this subject matter will benefit them greatly.

Keep up the good work. May الله protect and reward you.

والسلام عليكم ورحمه الله وبركاته
