First thing you have to realize is when we copy
when we speak all you have to understand is calling to
say this is what
he does not
he does not call to anything
and whoever is calling to
another web organization
understanding of the companion
technician support them and also their success is also
and so forth. So, the
right time, the right people, you have to do it correctly. And so, that was your calling to has to be
it will be the highest, so, that people are not calling towards or anything like that.
And calling people to lie.
calling people today
it takes steps, you have to start
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
recall the prayers.
The first thing that you
The first thing is
define in the data
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
we sometimes we forget, when people start approaching us with certain things like that, generally.
When you when you speak to non Muslims
during our time, you're gonna have people
approach you, they're gonna have
It might be about
the status of women. What
Muslims are doing the politics of economics, and so forth. And so, if you
do not know how to call that person,
you can spend
days weeks and sometimes speaking to that person, and in the end, you might be able to convince him as a woman,
but you have forgotten to call him tonight.
And so we have to realize that all the prophets and messengers, they were sent.
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
such an exceptional Muslim, that people will be astonished.
People will be amazed because of your audience.
And when that happens, then you once they come to you, they might say
Well, you know, why are you such a great? Really appreciate that and you might
you might be a knock on his door and say,
I see that you
a man comes talk to you
just tell him
he might say,
you've done so much and
who are you? And why? Why are you doing this? Right? You're New York.
be suspicious, right?
There you go, Whoa.
I don't have any objects in this lab, we are ordered to be kind to our neighbors.
You know why?
Let me tell you, it's
so beneficial, you can attract people to you. And that's why my use of
the two people who saw
ready with this dream?
come true. What do they say about
when they say, what is it?
We saw that you weren't even in prison, he stood out.
You were amongst those who did?
And so that's why they
needed to interpret this.
Right away. But no, this is he's taken advantage of an opportunity. He
is calling, he's gonna call them too.
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.
They might say, you know, why are these people bombing? bombing this person? Why is it that
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.
If you spend your time answering him, you might be an
opportunity to build common ground.
So now since he's coming to you,
I will tell you about this. But let me start with Let me ask you, the reason why you came to me concerning this.
Let me tell you about the religion
or somebody who did something very, very much.
Because you are so kind, you can say, Listen, you know, the same, the same.
The second reason why I went to all your life, you know why?
It's because I'm a Muslim.
And the reason is because
this is what we're ordered to do. And also let me tell you
the opportunity to
eat and then you can eat
this meal times, you have to wait for that time.
you will not have your next meal until the next meal comes. I will tell you
let me tell you something.
He says Now
when you're different than other people, people are wondering why they're different.
So you explain to them why you're different
People who do not believe in Allah.
he mentioned the knowledge
He also mentions the belief in the hereafter.
He's mentioning why
he doesn't follow. The reason why he's like this is because he does not follow the ways of the disbelievers.
And then, so he's
this way of life, you need to follow these values that we
message in the messages
and then deleted the messages
following these people, and following the way of the messages,
it is not appropriate for us to associate any
speaking to them,
he says yes.
All companions of the prison, see the way you speak and he says, companion.
Oh, my goodness, they sneak into them in a way that makes them feel comfortable. Not only that, they are.
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
they work for other people.
And so he's telling them
are just one
Lou is the one
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.
what's what's easier is
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
exactly examples of worst examples.
The best example, that sometimes you can use similar examples, if they don't understand
it, you're speaking to your children, about companionship, that friends and so forth, you
have the example.
So the example
that companionship is the person who sells himself perfume and the person who
speaking to children.
You might understand them in the
Yesterday when I was a blacksmith, blacksmith smells like.
So you want to use example.
hang around with the garbage man.
us example, that people understand
speech and language.
You might have more problems.
You have to
gathering people together.
Part of wisdom is to get people that you can work with. And you can go from nothing forming a down organization.
Yeah, start small, personal
the first three years with secrecy
to strengthen yourself first and he made it personal. And after that, then you make it bigger and bigger and bigger.
They have a large
amount of Muslims, they have a stake within where they call,
it was very effective that you work. Sometimes you have to start
from the beginning.
So when it comes to calling people to Islam,
by default, kindness
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
understanding, understanding when to be
understanding when you have
to be really, really trying to show
somebody who knows
who he is.
And so he's
very much some people came to complain about him. And when he heard that
he spoke to them, he has
He was angry. And he said
he raised his voice, because
it's not like the bedroom.
Sometimes, you know, sometimes you have to be firm, when coursework
we call it luck. You also have to
understand how do people react to certain things, when
to call people with hope and fear.
Just stand up and speak, things that make people lose hope.
All the time.
I remember when I first came back from
and remember the person who
I think was like,
So the guy
You know, I was a Christian before
and this is what I was running away from.
Speak to just
hope also because when it comes to hope and fear,
it helps us to stay away from sin. But you also need motivation to do good deeds.
So that has to be equal
hoping to hear like the two wings of a bird.
The two wings of love
and hope and fear the two wings if you have one wing smaller than the other.
So there's always this hope and fear. And it's
because it helps us to
do good deeds that keep us from doing bad things. And so that's why, when it comes to that one,
and calling people to Islam, we have to also try our very best to come together and work together
for years for the cost of
living in the United States, living here in America. And
we have a great officers.
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,
you know, I always tell him, I said, You guys must
stay in the city of the pocket some of
my teachers, he said, You know, we're looking at you. And we say
here, every single day, you have the opportunity to copy.
Every single day you're out there, you have the opportunity, you have to understand and everybody has an opportunity to help you
every single day.
Just like you have an awesome
event for us. So
living here, we have to
we have to make
telling you to believe in Jesus
on TV every single time the billboards are calling
you to the ways
that ways that will lead you and take you far away from Islam.
You have to understand that
they don't care what you are.
You can be whatever you want to be.
They don't care what
you're debating, don't watch anything.
Every single day, they're going to tell you
And this is
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
we speak about Java. It doesn't necessarily mean you go for
a certain amount of days.
your coworkers speak to them, be the best that you can be That in itself.
imagine if we were true Muslims
accepting Islam, we were just we would we would just be Muslim. So that's why
that will also mean non Muslim. We also have to worry about our children also, you have to worry about
your own family.
wisdom is also to take that time to revise
because you don't really have to
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.
It makes them curious, every single time.
I was behind him, and he said,
you're ready on the last panel.
He teaches something sometimes.
And you know, when you do this,
when you're driving,
when you get into the car,
I want you to do this. I want you to think of a question, you can ask me
and then an accident.
And then next time,
and you are also learning yourself.
You start asking the right questions.
Whenever you're coming to the party, you ask me a question.
So that actually helps a lot because it uses quite.
So right now, the first thing my son is waiting for.
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.
And so this is just,
when I took the driver's test, the test was
I pass it without reading the book.
I didn't know I have to change before, they didn't even have to ask us to get the drug.
Right. And so I didn't know that. So I went anyways. And then they told me,
I said, I didn't know I was gonna get the permit first, and then take a recess later.
So I was answering questions. And I answered all
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?
A lot of people.
he would drive.
So what's the first thing you see? Do you see that sign? Do you know what that means?
You see, it looks like this, this this. And he went
through all these years
He would always
you might have one or two
teachers at the same time. So the first thing was
that you know, you're not supposed to pass.
do it, you have to read it.
If you did this with your children.
I still remember the conditions of celebrity.
and if you
ask him a question.
something that we can do. on normal basis.
A little bit of time
And not only that,
because eventually you're going to run out of questions
And while you're preparing those questions before you enter
school for example, before they go to school, you got
to ask them you have to know the answer. You're right.
So you're gonna have to do some research.
You also mean that
always be viewing
later on actually when you start to get yourself
and so it's like you're always teaching them so even when you're washing dishes cleaning the house, you see.
This is a great way
for your children, teaching your children.
We have the school
