00:00:15--> 00:00:18

First thing you have to realize is when we copy

00:00:20--> 00:00:23

when we speak all you have to understand is calling to

00:00:30--> 00:00:31

say this is what

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

I call

00:00:37--> 00:00:38

while

00:00:40--> 00:00:41

he does not

00:00:44--> 00:00:45

he does not call to anything

00:00:47--> 00:00:48

and whoever is calling to

00:00:50--> 00:00:51

another web organization

00:00:57--> 00:00:59

understanding of the companion

00:01:01--> 00:01:05

technician support them and also their success is also

00:01:06--> 00:01:06

sometimes

00:01:14--> 00:01:15

and so forth. So, the

00:01:22--> 00:01:28

right time, the right people, you have to do it correctly. And so, that was your calling to has to be

00:01:31--> 00:01:31

ready.

00:01:33--> 00:01:33

So that

00:01:36--> 00:01:43

it will be the highest, so, that people are not calling towards or anything like that.

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

And calling people to lie.

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

Realize that

00:01:52--> 00:01:52

calling,

00:01:54--> 00:01:55

calling people today

00:01:57--> 00:02:00

it takes steps, you have to start

00:02:02--> 00:02:19

you have to start and build Foundation, you can't call people to something that they did not understand, or they haven't, the level of understanding hasn't reached yet. And so, you have to start with calling people to

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

recall the prayers.

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

The first thing that you

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

The first thing is

00:02:52--> 00:02:52

to

00:02:53--> 00:02:55

define in the data

00:02:58--> 00:02:58

that matters

00:03:02--> 00:03:16

to give the second rich given to them. And so notice the steps, once you get, then you go on to the next one. And this is where some of us especially

00:03:17--> 00:03:24

we sometimes we forget, when people start approaching us with certain things like that, generally.

00:03:26--> 00:03:28

When you when you speak to non Muslims

00:03:30--> 00:03:33

during our time, you're gonna have people

00:03:34--> 00:03:34

when they

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

approach you, they're gonna have

00:03:40--> 00:03:41

hot topics.

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

It might be about

00:03:44--> 00:03:47

the status of women. What

00:03:50--> 00:03:51

about

00:03:52--> 00:03:52

this?

00:03:56--> 00:04:03

Muslims are doing the politics of economics, and so forth. And so, if you

00:04:04--> 00:04:07

do not know how to call that person,

00:04:09--> 00:04:10

you can spend

00:04:11--> 00:04:21

days weeks and sometimes speaking to that person, and in the end, you might be able to convince him as a woman,

00:04:22--> 00:04:24

but you have forgotten to call him tonight.

00:04:27--> 00:04:31

And so we have to realize that all the prophets and messengers, they were sent.

00:04:34--> 00:04:42

And the first thing that you have to do is first of all attract people to you. How do you attract people to you is by being

00:04:44--> 00:04:49

such an exceptional Muslim, that people will be astonished.

00:04:50--> 00:04:53

People will be amazed because of your audience.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

And when that happens, then you once they come to you, they might say

00:05:00--> 00:05:05

Well, you know, why are you such a great? Really appreciate that and you might

00:05:08--> 00:05:11

you might be a knock on his door and say,

00:05:13--> 00:05:15

I see that you

00:05:16--> 00:05:17

may like,

00:05:20--> 00:05:20

right

00:05:36--> 00:05:36

now

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

a man comes talk to you

00:05:42--> 00:05:42

just tell him

00:05:45--> 00:05:45

he might say,

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

you've done so much and

00:05:50--> 00:05:54

who are you? And why? Why are you doing this? Right? You're New York.

00:05:55--> 00:05:57

be suspicious, right?

00:05:59--> 00:06:00

There you go, Whoa.

00:06:03--> 00:06:08

I don't have any objects in this lab, we are ordered to be kind to our neighbors.

00:06:09--> 00:06:10

You know why?

00:06:13--> 00:06:14

Let me tell you, it's

00:06:17--> 00:06:23

so beneficial, you can attract people to you. And that's why my use of

00:06:26--> 00:06:28

the two people who saw

00:06:30--> 00:06:30

as

00:06:32--> 00:06:32

ready,

00:06:34--> 00:06:35

ready with this dream?

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

come true. What do they say about

00:06:44--> 00:06:46

when they say, what is it?

00:06:50--> 00:06:53

We saw that you weren't even in prison, he stood out.

00:06:55--> 00:06:57

You were amongst those who did?

00:06:58--> 00:06:59

And so that's why they

00:07:01--> 00:07:03

needed to interpret this.

00:07:06--> 00:07:13

Right away. But no, this is he's taken advantage of an opportunity. He

00:07:22--> 00:07:24

is calling, he's gonna call them too.

00:07:25--> 00:07:35

Record, he gives the details of I will give you the answer. So some people will come to you, they will say, and they might come to you. Because they know.

00:07:38--> 00:07:46

They might say, you know, why are these people bombing? bombing this person? Why is it that

00:07:49--> 00:07:59

somebody might come to you with that question. So what do you do? First of you cannot spend your whole time trying to answer that you're not going to get to the point.

00:08:05--> 00:08:08

If you spend your time answering him, you might be an

00:08:10--> 00:08:13

opportunity to build common ground.

00:08:15--> 00:08:16

So now since he's coming to you,

00:08:18--> 00:08:26

I will tell you about this. But let me start with Let me ask you, the reason why you came to me concerning this.

00:08:28--> 00:08:32

Let me tell you about the religion

00:08:34--> 00:08:37

or somebody who did something very, very much.

00:08:39--> 00:08:46

Because you are so kind, you can say, Listen, you know, the same, the same.

00:08:47--> 00:08:51

The second reason why I went to all your life, you know why?

00:08:52--> 00:08:54

It's because I'm a Muslim.

00:08:55--> 00:08:56

And the reason is because

00:08:57--> 00:09:01

this is what we're ordered to do. And also let me tell you

00:09:03--> 00:09:04

the opportunity to

00:09:12--> 00:09:15

eat and then you can eat

00:09:16--> 00:09:19

this meal times, you have to wait for that time.

00:09:22--> 00:09:23

So

00:09:26--> 00:09:34

you will not have your next meal until the next meal comes. I will tell you

00:09:37--> 00:09:38

let me tell you something.

00:09:39--> 00:09:41

He says Now

00:09:43--> 00:09:47

when you're different than other people, people are wondering why they're different.

00:09:49--> 00:09:52

So you explain to them why you're different

00:10:01--> 00:10:03

People who do not believe in Allah.

00:10:06--> 00:10:07

So

00:10:10--> 00:10:12

he mentioned the knowledge

00:10:13--> 00:10:14

he mentioned.

00:10:15--> 00:10:18

He also mentions the belief in the hereafter.

00:10:19--> 00:10:20

He's mentioning why

00:10:22--> 00:10:29

he doesn't follow. The reason why he's like this is because he does not follow the ways of the disbelievers.

00:10:33--> 00:10:35

And then, so he's

00:10:37--> 00:10:37

okay

00:10:39--> 00:10:45

this way of life, you need to follow these values that we

00:11:13--> 00:11:15

message in the messages

00:11:18--> 00:11:20

and then deleted the messages

00:11:22--> 00:11:26

following these people, and following the way of the messages,

00:11:32--> 00:11:35

it is not appropriate for us to associate any

00:11:39--> 00:11:40

speaking to them,

00:11:41--> 00:11:42

he says yes.

00:11:44--> 00:11:50

All companions of the prison, see the way you speak and he says, companion.

00:11:52--> 00:12:00

Oh, my goodness, they sneak into them in a way that makes them feel comfortable. Not only that, they are.

00:12:01--> 00:12:17

These two people are service. So if you speak into a people, part of wisdom is speaking to them in a language that they understand using examples that they understand. So sometimes what his servants do, generally

00:12:19--> 00:12:20

they work for other people.

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

And so he's telling them

00:12:33--> 00:12:35

many, many,

00:12:37--> 00:12:37

many

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

are just one

00:12:42--> 00:12:42

one,

00:12:44--> 00:12:45

Lou is the one

00:12:47--> 00:13:00

so What's he saying? What he's saying is this you know, what I'm talking about? You guys have massive isn't any masters this person is talking to this person is telling them to do that.

00:13:02--> 00:13:02

Yo,

00:13:05--> 00:13:06

what's what's easier is

00:13:08--> 00:13:17

so these are example that he's using because he understands who they are. And so that's why when we're speaking to children, use examples so that they can understand

00:13:19--> 00:13:21

exactly examples of worst examples.

00:13:22--> 00:13:27

The best example, that sometimes you can use similar examples, if they don't understand

00:13:28--> 00:13:36

it, you're speaking to your children, about companionship, that friends and so forth, you

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

have the example.

00:13:43--> 00:13:44

So the example

00:13:45--> 00:13:50

that companionship is the person who sells himself perfume and the person who

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

speaking to children.

00:13:56--> 00:13:57

You might understand them in the

00:13:59--> 00:13:59

blacksmith.

00:14:01--> 00:14:05

Yesterday when I was a blacksmith, blacksmith smells like.

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

So you want to use example.

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

Maybe say

00:14:14--> 00:14:15

hang around with the garbage man.

00:14:21--> 00:14:21

Give

00:14:25--> 00:14:29

us example, that people understand

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

speech and language.

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

You might have more problems.

00:14:41--> 00:14:41

Also.

00:14:49--> 00:14:50

You have to

00:14:52--> 00:14:53

build small

00:14:55--> 00:14:57

gathering people together.

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

Part of wisdom is to get people that you can work with. And you can go from nothing forming a down organization.

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

Yeah, start small, personal

00:15:16--> 00:15:17

beginning

00:15:19--> 00:15:22

the first three years with secrecy

00:15:25--> 00:15:25

was

00:15:30--> 00:15:36

to strengthen yourself first and he made it personal. And after that, then you make it bigger and bigger and bigger.

00:15:43--> 00:15:46

They have a large

00:15:47--> 00:15:52

amount of Muslims, they have a stake within where they call,

00:15:54--> 00:15:58

it was very effective that you work. Sometimes you have to start

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

from the beginning.

00:16:02--> 00:16:06

So when it comes to calling people to Islam,

00:16:08--> 00:16:10

by default, kindness

00:16:12--> 00:16:22

is the default. Kindness is the default, you speak to them in a nice way. But that's not always, that's not always the case. Sometimes you need to start

00:16:25--> 00:16:29

understanding, understanding when to be

00:16:30--> 00:16:31

understanding when you have

00:16:33--> 00:16:35

to be really, really trying to show

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

somebody who knows

00:16:43--> 00:16:44

who he is.

00:16:46--> 00:16:47

And so he's

00:16:48--> 00:16:54

very much some people came to complain about him. And when he heard that

00:16:55--> 00:16:58

he spoke to them, he has

00:16:59--> 00:17:00

his face.

00:17:03--> 00:17:05

He was angry. And he said

00:17:11--> 00:17:15

he raised his voice, because

00:17:18--> 00:17:19

it's not like the bedroom.

00:17:25--> 00:17:30

Sometimes, you know, sometimes you have to be firm, when coursework

00:17:33--> 00:17:34

and

00:17:35--> 00:17:39

we call it luck. You also have to

00:17:41--> 00:17:44

understand how do people react to certain things, when

00:17:55--> 00:18:00

to call people with hope and fear.

00:18:01--> 00:18:07

Just stand up and speak, things that make people lose hope.

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

All the time.

00:18:11--> 00:18:13

I remember when I first came back from

00:18:20--> 00:18:22

and remember the person who

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

I think was like,

00:18:27--> 00:18:28

the grade.

00:18:40--> 00:18:41

So the guy

00:18:47--> 00:18:47

says,

00:18:49--> 00:18:52

You know, I was a Christian before

00:18:53--> 00:18:55

and this is what I was running away from.

00:18:58--> 00:18:59

It.

00:19:02--> 00:19:02

He says,

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

the opposite.

00:19:30--> 00:19:32

Speak to just

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

people.

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

We

00:19:37--> 00:19:41

hope also because when it comes to hope and fear,

00:19:46--> 00:19:51

it helps us to stay away from sin. But you also need motivation to do good deeds.

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

So that has to be equal

00:19:59--> 00:19:59

wherever they

00:20:01--> 00:20:04

hoping to hear like the two wings of a bird.

00:20:07--> 00:20:08

The two wings of love

00:20:10--> 00:20:13

and hope and fear the two wings if you have one wing smaller than the other.

00:20:31--> 00:20:34

So there's always this hope and fear. And it's

00:20:38--> 00:20:41

because it helps us to

00:20:42--> 00:20:50

do good deeds that keep us from doing bad things. And so that's why, when it comes to that one,

00:20:51--> 00:20:59

and calling people to Islam, we have to also try our very best to come together and work together

00:21:00--> 00:21:03

for years for the cost of

00:21:04--> 00:21:09

living in the United States, living here in America. And

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

we have a great officers.

00:21:14--> 00:21:21

And I remember when I go back to Medina, and I need some of my teachers, and they keep every time I sit down with him,

00:21:23--> 00:21:25

you know, I always tell him, I said, You guys must

00:21:26--> 00:21:29

stay in the city of the pocket some of

00:21:30--> 00:21:34

my teachers, he said, You know, we're looking at you. And we say

00:21:36--> 00:21:36

that you're

00:21:40--> 00:21:44

here, every single day, you have the opportunity to copy.

00:21:46--> 00:21:54

Every single day you're out there, you have the opportunity, you have to understand and everybody has an opportunity to help you

00:21:55--> 00:21:56

every single day.

00:22:02--> 00:22:03

Just like you have an awesome

00:22:05--> 00:22:06

event for us. So

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

living here, we have to

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

we have to make

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

telling you to believe in Jesus

00:22:28--> 00:22:31

on TV every single time the billboards are calling

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

you to the ways

00:22:36--> 00:22:39

that ways that will lead you and take you far away from Islam.

00:22:41--> 00:22:42

You have to understand that

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

they don't care what you are.

00:22:50--> 00:22:51

You can be whatever you want to be.

00:22:53--> 00:22:54

They don't care what

00:23:01--> 00:23:02

you're debating, don't watch anything.

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

Every single day, they're going to tell you

00:23:08--> 00:23:09

that.

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

And this is

00:23:13--> 00:23:15

marketing advertisements.

00:23:20--> 00:23:42

So that's why you're being called to all kinds of every single day even though you don't realize it in America, every single day. The average American sees 3000 3000 apps every day. billboards, TV Radio 3000 times a

00:23:46--> 00:23:47

day.

00:23:50--> 00:23:51

That's why

00:23:55--> 00:24:00

we speak about Java. It doesn't necessarily mean you go for

00:24:01--> 00:24:02

a certain amount of days.

00:24:05--> 00:24:05

Anytime

00:24:07--> 00:24:13

your coworkers speak to them, be the best that you can be That in itself.

00:24:14--> 00:24:15

Going to

00:24:18--> 00:24:20

imagine if we were true Muslims

00:24:27--> 00:24:33

accepting Islam, we were just we would we would just be Muslim. So that's why

00:24:35--> 00:24:43

that will also mean non Muslim. We also have to worry about our children also, you have to worry about

00:24:46--> 00:24:47

your own family.

00:24:51--> 00:24:51

So your

00:24:52--> 00:24:56

wisdom is also to take that time to revise

00:24:59--> 00:24:59

because you don't really have to

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

Given

00:25:01--> 00:25:09

every time you see them, remind them of the last time I asked him a question, what the best thing you can do is ask them a question.

00:25:10--> 00:25:12

It makes them curious, every single time.

00:25:30--> 00:25:31

I was behind him, and he said,

00:25:37--> 00:25:38

you're ready on the last panel.

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

He teaches something sometimes.

00:25:50--> 00:25:51

And you know, when you do this,

00:25:52--> 00:25:53

when you're driving,

00:25:55--> 00:25:56

when you get into the car,

00:25:57--> 00:26:02

I want you to do this. I want you to think of a question, you can ask me

00:26:03--> 00:26:03

something,

00:26:05--> 00:26:06

and then an accident.

00:26:07--> 00:26:08

And then next time,

00:26:10--> 00:26:12

and you are also learning yourself.

00:26:13--> 00:26:15

You start asking the right questions.

00:26:19--> 00:26:22

Whenever you're coming to the party, you ask me a question.

00:26:26--> 00:26:28

So that actually helps a lot because it uses quite.

00:26:33--> 00:26:36

So right now, the first thing my son is waiting for.

00:26:41--> 00:26:47

And so it helps you to learn also, and remind you also next week, I might ask the same question just to see he still remembers.

00:26:49--> 00:26:50

And so this is just,

00:26:51--> 00:26:51

you just

00:26:55--> 00:26:59

when I took the driver's test, the test was

00:27:01--> 00:27:04

I pass it without reading the book.

00:27:05--> 00:27:10

I didn't know I have to change before, they didn't even have to ask us to get the drug.

00:27:11--> 00:27:15

Right. And so I didn't know that. So I went anyways. And then they told me,

00:27:17--> 00:27:21

I said, I didn't know I was gonna get the permit first, and then take a recess later.

00:27:24--> 00:27:28

So I was answering questions. And I answered all

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

these.

00:27:33--> 00:27:40

So then I was, I didn't I never read any of the books. I didn't read one page at all. How does that ask?

00:27:42--> 00:27:43

A lot of people.

00:27:47--> 00:27:48

Obviously,

00:27:49--> 00:27:50

my father,

00:27:51--> 00:27:52

my father,

00:27:54--> 00:27:55

he would drive.

00:27:56--> 00:28:00

So what's the first thing you see? Do you see that sign? Do you know what that means?

00:28:06--> 00:28:07

know?

00:28:08--> 00:28:11

You see, it looks like this, this this. And he went

00:28:12--> 00:28:13

through all these years

00:28:15--> 00:28:16

of driving.

00:28:21--> 00:28:22

He would always

00:28:24--> 00:28:24

say,

00:28:25--> 00:28:26

you might have one or two

00:28:29--> 00:28:31

teachers at the same time. So the first thing was

00:28:34--> 00:28:35

that you know, you're not supposed to pass.

00:28:40--> 00:28:40

You can't

00:28:44--> 00:28:45

do it, you have to read it.

00:28:46--> 00:28:48

If you did this with your children.

00:28:56--> 00:28:58

I still remember the conditions of celebrity.

00:29:02--> 00:29:03

You remember?

00:29:14--> 00:29:15

So that's,

00:29:17--> 00:29:17

and if you

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

ask him a question.

00:29:22--> 00:29:23

That's also

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

something that we can do. on normal basis.

00:29:32--> 00:29:33

A little bit of time

00:29:35--> 00:29:37

is delivered.

00:29:39--> 00:29:40

And not only that,

00:29:41--> 00:29:43

because eventually you're going to run out of questions

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

right?

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

And while you're preparing those questions before you enter

00:30:08--> 00:30:11

school for example, before they go to school, you got

00:30:15--> 00:30:17

to ask them you have to know the answer. You're right.

00:30:20--> 00:30:22

So you're gonna have to do some research.

00:30:23--> 00:30:24

You also mean that

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

you will

00:30:32--> 00:30:33

always be viewing

00:30:34--> 00:30:36

later on actually when you start to get yourself

00:30:43--> 00:30:47

and so it's like you're always teaching them so even when you're washing dishes cleaning the house, you see.

00:30:49--> 00:30:50

This is a great way

00:30:51--> 00:30:52

for your children, teaching your children.

00:31:02--> 00:31:03

We have the school

00:31:04--> 00:31:05

and youth center
