One of the major sins, one of the major sins is to say that you saw in a dream, you saw something a dream and you didn't see it. So if someone did it see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a dream. And they said they saw the Prophet said a lot, I mean a dream, and they didn't. And they're lying about it. It's a major sin. It's a major sin. Why is it a major sin?
Because you're lying about Allah.
You're lying about Allah subhana wa Tada.
You know you when you lie about other things, you know It's haram, but to lie about Allah is even greater. That's the greatest lie.
That's the greatest lie that you know,
that a person can make up and that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, capoeira, capoeira. Kalama tanta, Atlanta Hello, Jim and FYI, him, ear hole Luna Illa katiba. And, you know, what a horrific word that they say that comes from their mouth. All they say about Allah. Allah is lies. In this is when you're when you're speaking about lies. And when you're speaking about Allah subhanho wa taala. And you're lying about it. The punishment or the sin is even greater. And that's when you lie about the deen. It's greater and when you lie about the Hadith of the Prophet sallahu wa salam. It's one of the major major sins in fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Men catabolite
Cosabella muta. Amida failure tuber What am I the homie Nana? Whosoever lies about me intentionally, then let him take his place in the hellfire. That means you're reserving your place in the hellfire. So when you're lying about saying that you saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was saying that you saw something in a dream that you didn't see. It is lying about Allah. And that's why it's such a great, that's why the sin is so great, so much greater than just any lies. You know, that's why the prophets have said lying, is lying about me. It's not like lying about any other person. Because it's connected to the deen. Right? And so, the first thing that the prophets of Allah
Lifesum saw was righteous dreams. And righteous dreams are glad tiding but you're never sure. So when somebody sees something, you know, something like, say you see something that has happened in the future? Does that contradict belief in the unseen? Because we say the only Allah knows the future. So if you're saying that someone can receive revelation here, that that they know the future, wouldn't that contradict the fact that we know the simple, the fact that Allah only knows the future?
Does it? It's not really you don't it's not really knowing the future? Because you're never sure until it happens. Are you 100%? Sure, no, you just hope and you take it as glad tidings, but nobody is 100%. Sure. Right. And so you don't really know the future. It's just these are glad tidings just good news for you. Take it and be thankful to Allah subhanho wa taala. And, and hope and look forward to seeing that good. That's going to come but you don't really know the future because it's not you never know if it's gonna happen or not. Until it actually happened to happen. Oh, yeah, that was true. Let's see, then you don't really have the V trigger. It's just happened right now. That's
when you became sure 100% Sure when it actually happened, which is no longer the future. And the second thing is sometimes Jibreel Alehissalaam Makana yaki Hill, Al Malik, Malik, Fierro or he were called by him in the IRR who sometimes the Gibreel Gibreel he,
he reveals it directly to the Prophet salons heart directly to him. And so then he's without seeing everything so he doesn't see anything. But it's from Gibreel from Gibreel and the revelation comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he receives it directly without seeing Jabril can remember the first time what did he come? He saw the way the video squeezed him he said aircraft this mirror because the fella and sometimes he doesn't see Gibreel but he receives it directly. And sometimes. So this is one one occasion is the man the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam.
He said in a row help Buddhists in a row in row halco dose and did the Holy Spirit meaning the the Jibreel right in a row have poodles naffaa Safira Well, II NEFA we had our he he has
his blown into my myself when he saw himself and it's hot.
are in software and no lender mode and no lender modes. Nelson had that stack Miller or is that a person will not die?
Julia has, has blown into a blown into me this is who this is, of course revelation How does debris law for from Allah Subhana Allah, so he has blown into me that no one will die, no one will die unless until his it is has already been completed. That means when you did the day that you were born, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada tells the angels to write down your risk. That means you have provisions that your money, whether you're wealthy or rich, so don't worry about it. Whatever, you will not die if it if it has already been written for you that you will get this amount that you're gonna get that amount, and you won't get any more and you won't get any less. So don't worry about it. So if
you know, yes, he go, just go out and try your very best and do your best. And some people might say why is he like so such a billionaire? And so, so rich? And he does, he hardly does anything? Yeah, you do the best that you can. But you know, you put your trust in Allah and you go out and go work and do the best that you can. And, and don't worry too much. Because if it's already written for you, you will get it.
And you also will only get what you have already been written for you. You don't know how much that is. You don't know how much and you don't know how much left. For some of us maybe we have a lot left. And some of us we don't have a lot left. Because we're not going to live in this earth for that long. And some of us will have will live longer than others. So nobody knows when but at the same time, don't worry about it too much because whatever is coming to you will come to you and whatever is not coming to you will not come to you. So some people some people might say for example Ilaha illa Allah you know if only I did this and I only I did that I would have been a millionaire
right? No Allah for you if you were if you're Eveleigh wrote that you'd be a billionaire you're gonna be a billionaire no matter what happens. So So you understand so don't worry about it too much. You know, just go out and do your best and and spend your time that and that which is beneficial in the worship of Allah and the worship of Allah. And it's, it's everything is from Allah Subhana Allah Allah but the Prophet sallallahu sallam said footstep Allah, if you know that, then have taqwa in Allah. What does that mean in your risk also, for Tapachula wedge Milou fifth polyp,
and may fear Allah. And when you seeking something, take that which is best. Meaning when you're looking for something, take from that which Hala, right because let's say Allah wrote for you $100,000. This, maybe this year, let's say you get 100,000 This year, you're gonna get 100,000. Okay? But if you see if you still, you still gonna get 100,000 if you work hard, you're gonna get that 100,000. So the 100,000 is either going to come from stealing or it's going to come from and if you so that's why don't go around looking for things are haram. You know, sometimes the block the money that comes to you is like, Okay, this if I do this? What if I don't do that? I might not make
Right? So some people, they might open a restaurant, and they might say, you know, if I don't sell alcohol, then I'm not going to get customers. Right? This is an area that you know, we have a lot of people, you know, we're living in America, if I don't sell alcohol, you know, I'm not gonna make enough I'm not gonna make money. So if I don't, then I show a lot. If I if I don't, then I'm not gonna make my if I do then I'll make more money. Right? No, * the whole law, fear Allah, whatever is coming to you will come to you. If Allah wrote for you that you get $100,000 in Sharla this year, then you're gonna get 100,000 Even if you don't sell alcohol,
because it's coming to you either to the Haram way, or ll way. Z choose a Halawa, then Allah Hupo blessing and we'll put Baraka in your wealth. So that $100,000 You inshallah will make you happy. Otherwise, maybe the $100,000 will lead you into more haram you might end up having more headaches, you might end up having a lot of other problems. Sometimes you know, you get sick, sometimes you get this and that, this and this, this and that happens. And so, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, for top Allah, we're at middle fifth polyp and this hadith here, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself, we said in a row and kudos. The angel Jibreel came and blew into me. So this was, is this
an IRA? No, it's not. This is this is how the Prophet son received information.
This is how he received revelation and revelation from the prophet from ALLAH SubhanA wa Fana. There's revelation that's Quran, and there's revelation that is information. Revelation, that's information and Revelation sometimes comes through, of course the Prophet sallallahu. Some does not speak of his own wounds and whims and desires. Allah says well Mallya Antigua and Hauer, in Hua Allah, wa you you have, he does not speak of from his own desires. It is about revelation that is revealed. And so that's the second way that he goes straight to her. to him the third type, the third way that the revelation comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and who sallallahu
alayhi from Kenya at the masala hole al Malik Rauland. So sometimes a man will debrief will come with the angel will come as a man for you Holly to who had a and who may oppo Lulu. And so then he comes to me tells him about what has been revealed, and tell he understands and then the Prophet Salam receives that information directly from the angel who has come in the form of a man named Angel that did real coming to the form of a man. Anyone anyone know of an incident that that happened.
We've been studying what the hadith of Gibreel that who came in the form of a man he came in the form of a man dressed in an all white allow Euro Allah He Atheros suffer, nobody's you couldn't, you didn't. Nobody saw the signs of a traveler, you know, his, you know, when you're, if you're not from the city, if you're not from the area, in the old days, if somebody is coming to you, and they're coming from far away, they're very dirty. Right? Because they've been traveling in the desert, and when the sand and the heat and you know, in the dirt. And so they are not clean. Usually, it's not there, especially if there were a white, right, you can do it, see the effects of it. And so
sometimes you believe will come and he will tell the Prophet sallallaahu some, sometimes this happens in front of the companions. And sometimes this happens, of course, when the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam is alone. And I remember we mentioned that he wouldn't whenever he would come, he likes to come in, in the form of the most handsome companion. Anybody who's that companion wise, you guys remember?
The helical we are very good. Mashallah. So he used to come in the form of a man who was very, very, very, very handsome, the most handsome of the companions. Why so that it wouldn't attract so much attention? Right? Because if he came in the form of a stranger, people would be worried. Right? And so what's another one another way that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam received revelation and no Kana yet te fi mentally saw solitary geras, sometimes they would come to him just like the ringing of a bell,
just like the ringing of a bell. And here, we can actually add a shadow to highlight here.
This was the one this is the one that was most difficult on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and sometimes on a hot day or a cold day, the Prophet sallallahu so would still be sweating as a result of it. And sometimes if he was riding on something, riding an animal, the animal would not be able to handle it and he would fall.
Like the the weight of revelation would cause the animal to, to to kneel down as a result of it. And so that's why this was one of the most this was, of course, one of the most difficult ways that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would receive revelation. And the fifth way that the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam would receive revelation is a no urine, urine and mela Kofi Surah t, let the holy for Allah. Sometimes he would see Jibreel in His original form,
he would see Jibreel and his original form for you, hey, Hola, hey, masha Allah up. And so sometimes this, sometimes this, this, this occurs, and Allah Subhana Allah would give, he would receive revelation, and he would see Jibreel and you know how you would see Jibreel you really so huge that he would fill the horizon. He will fill the horizon. So Gibreel isn't just a small Angel, like the same size when he came in the form of a man that's he's taking a different form. His original form is huge. His original form is huge and worth not just not just like you know, just you know, you see like two wings.
Like, they have wings, but how did the wings look like? Allah knows best how the wings are? Instead, when it's something of the unseen, we can't imagine it. You call them wings. But they're not the same. Their wings are befitting of WT real. Right? We, if you see, you know, it's a wing, like, for example, I said, an airplane has a wing is an airplane awaiting the same as a bird wing?
It's not the F. If you tell somebody you said I haven't I have something that I ride on. And maybe 300 years ago, that it has wings, and I get on it and it flies and as it flies on wings, so what do you think they're thinking? They're thinking the wing is moving? Right? The airplane wings move? Let's hope not, because if it moves too much, then you're in trouble. They'll stay stiff. Right? But you call them wings, to how are the wings of ghibelline Allahu Allah knows best, what the wings of Jubilee looks like. But we know that he is stretches. And it covers the whole of the horizon, and the whole of the horizon. So
you, so that's one way and Allah Subhana Allah Allah mentions this, in Surah Surah najem, ALLAH SubhanA, Allah mentions,
the prophet that and the messenger of himself also mentioned in a couple of our Hadith that he saw the video in His original form.
The sixth type, man, oh have Allah who
will will focus on my what? Over focus on my word, and sometimes
ALLAH SubhanA wa jal reveals to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the habits to the prophets of Allah. So when that happened on which occasion
Mirage, the five daily prayers when he went up, he went, he went, and when he got to the city of Santa Monica at the end of the load, tree, give everybody give us assurance. This is a this is my limit. I can't go any further. Right? I can't go anymore. This is the boundary, I can't go. I don't have I don't have permission, I have visa to go. I don't have only you know, right there under the Prophet sallallahu. It's just between him and Allah subhanho wa taala. Did Allah did he see Allah, the stronger opinions or he didn't see Allah, but Allah subhanho wa taala, communicated to him,
spoke to him communicated directly to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So Prophet Musa did receive, you know, Allah Subhana Allah Allah spoke to him directly, but the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam also was spoken to directly and so this was in the in the situate in the shows importance of prayer, that Allah subhana wa Tamaryn revealed the five the five daily prayers, it was 50 prayers from the very beginning, it was 50 players, and it was direct to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam without any intermediary without any loss or any anyone in between. And so that's that was that that's something that happened in the Mirage Mirage this raw is a night
journey to biting the muck this they may arrive is when he went up to Allah subhana wa Tada another one
is another one is what we mentioned right ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada speaking to the seventh type is Allah speaking to him directly, so Calam Hola, hola, hola. Minho, la Vela wazifa we will be Lavasa Malik we are so he speaks to him directly without speaking to without any, any any type of
you know in any intermediary and of course
we know that this has mentioned in in, in the Quran about Prophet Musa Carla Mala who Musa that Lehmann, Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke to him directly and Allah. Allah Subhana Allah mentions in this first column Allahu Musa that Lima just to make sure that no, did he speak to him directly? Yeah. The claim I hear is directly like the way how you would speak and yet Allah Subhana Allah spoke to Prophet Musa directly and of course we know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
he went up to Allah subhanho wa Taala in the light of the night of Mirage from Roddy JB. JB he, and then he was he was
he was as he ascended until
he got to the level where he said, That's metal fee sorry, Phil Acklam. He said I would to the point where I would hear so high that this is you know, the pens, you know, like the the writing
Another pen he could hear the writing of the pen Subhanallah you know, when the pen writes, it makes noise is there certain noises also. And so this is what the prophets of Allah as I mentioned, so he went all the way up. And this was of course, as we mentioned, this is something that's direct to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So Allah subhanho wa Taala caught up this made up because they call up Hala pal in Santa Monica and then many of the other revelations started to come, of course, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned you had Muslim Yama death here afterwards. Now, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before he was just a regular person. And now Allah subhanho wa Taala
after revealing the message to him, Allah tells him to deliver this message. So at the end of the delivering of the message, there are Morahan there are phases, different phases of Dawa So, the phases of Dawa are five phases there are five phases of Dawa. And this is very, very important for us to understand. Why? Because there's hekman There's wisdom in learning the phases of Dawa, because you don't speak to people the same way. And, and, you know, if there are if they're not ready to accept it, right, and so the, there's a different there are different phases. So the first phase, of course,
the first phase is a Nobunaga is prophethood, the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam receive, receive revelation. And then he is now a prophet. Is there a difference between a prophet and messenger? Some people say, Oh, A prophet is one who is ordered to deliver the message. So a messenger is one who is ordered to deliver the message. So some people they say, when the ALLAH SubhanA, Allah says, This Mira, because the Haluk he was a prophet. And then when Allah revealed, yeah, you have Madatha bomb for anzia. Or go out and warn the people that means deliver the message. When you're ordered to deliver the message, then you become a messenger. This is what some people
say. But the stronger opinion is that the prophets and messengers of God are all the order to deliver the message. You understand? It doesn't make sense for someone. Oh, I'm a prophet. Okay, I don't have to deliver the message. I just sleep here now. Lila Alhamdulillah I'm successful. You guys gonna die? I think, you know, you guys can all go, you know, suffer the hereafter we don't care. I'll go I'll enter Jana. And what happened? You guys, I don't care. Right now.
That doesn't make sense, right? How can you be given the message and not order to deliver it? Right now we're ready to deliver it. So all the prophets and messengers of Allah are ordered to deliver whether he's a prophet or not in order to teach, and of course, but the difference is, if your people except from you, if you're sent to a people who are already Muslims, then you're a prophet.
And if you're sent from to people who don't believe in you, then you are a messenger, because your son you, you get the message and you're delivering the message to them, because they don't have the message yet.
Do you understand? They don't have the message yet. So you're a messenger, you deliver the message that they don't have
to they don't have, if you are and so all prophets?
If, if they are their prophets that are not messengers, yes. Because they are people who don't need to deliver the message. They just already have the message of Lila, during the time of Prophet Adam, all his children were Muslim.
Already, he doesn't need to deliver the message of worship Allah alone. Everybody already worships Allah alone.
Right? Nobody, nobody denies the existence of Allah. or No one denies the worship of Allah subhanaw taala alone. So you already have that. So that's a prophet. And that's why the first prophet is who
Prophet Adam Alayhis Salam, but who is the first messenger
so that means that nor nor was a messenger and Prophet Adam, Allison was not a messenger. You're gonna say he's not a messenger. He's the first man and first prophet, man and prophet, but he's not the first messenger because the prophets of Allah Allah alayhi wa sallam said the first messenger in the Hadith of the Shiva to Cobra or Ozma, in the
intercession of the major in session and they have judgment that they when the people go to him to Prophet Noah, they say you are the first messenger you are the first messenger that means before him, there were no no other messengers. Why? Because before him everyone was Muslim.
You there's nothing there's no message to deliver. The message is already with them. You know, there's already message they already have the message. What are you delivering?
You all you do is remind, you're not bringing anything. So Allah subhanho wa Taala when he sends a messenger, the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent to the people of, of Mecca and they rejected him. So they were not Muslims. They were idol worshipers, and he's calling them to the worship of Allah. And Prophet Musa was sent to who
sent to Bani Israel N.
fit around is heavier around in the Huhtala go to Iran go to Pharaoh was a Muslim? Of course not. Right. So he was sent to people who didn't believe in him. Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam sent to his people. They didn't believe in him. So he's a messenger of Allah subhanaw taala. And Prophet nor Prophet Isa was sent to Bani Israel. Did they believe in him? No, what did they say?
What did they say? Do they believe in him now? No, no, they still don't believe and they're still waiting for him to come?
Do you understand? So that's he's a messenger. Why? Because they didn't believe in Him. They didn't even they didn't even they don't even say that he's a prophet, a messenger of God. Well, they say they call it the worst names.
They call him the worst names. So he's a messenger of God sent to Bani Israel, where there are some who believed in him, yes. But the majority of them no, they reject. They rejected his message. And so he's a messenger. So when you're sent to a people that don't believe in you or not Muslim, the who don't accept your message, then you are a messenger than you are a messenger. So the next so the first stage is a no who is a prophet and messenger of God. And then Allah Subhana Allah the second stage, he's already he's a prophet and messenger of Allah either way, right? But when ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada sends them then Allah Subhana Allah to Allah orders the prophets of Allah if I'm too well,
I'm there are theoretical corabi
and warm, the closest Kindred,
warn the people who are closest to you.
So the first stage is what?
First stage of Dawa.
As your family so so that helps us also, who do you focus focus on yourself. Be good, be a good Muslim, the first person first people that you you teach that you call to you remind the pray and you will call people. They are your family members, your wife, your wife, your children, your relatives, your aunts and uncles. They're the first ones that you should deliver the message to because they're the closest one to you. They're the closest one to you. So the third the second level, the second stage. The second of the five stages of Dawa is family doubt start with the family. And then after that, Allah Subhana Allah ordered him to, to call his people. Yeah, you have
more deaths at home funds, were up back Africa here with the obika go and, and, and call the people. Now he started. So that's the third stage is calling who who are who are His people.
The Quraysh very good, the whorish he starts with his own family. And he starts with the people who are closest to him, then he then he calls the forage. And then after that, in our common metahuman MetalMan or the Republic, who to call to the people whom ALLAH SubhanA did not send a warner before them who they're the Arabs. Remember Allah Subhana Allah Allah sent
the prophets and messengers of before to
Bani Israel and every single people they have their own prophets and messengers. Some of them are mentioned in the Quran. Some of them are not. That means every people why? Because if because there are a lot of people on Earth. If you send someone to a certain area, in those days, you don't have airplanes, you don't have internet. If you call in people, the only people who know you are the people who grew up with you, in your town in your area. That's all you don't care. You can't go too far. Right? And that's why the Prophet saw the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, though, is a messenger to all of humanity,
to all of humanity,
to everybody, to all of humanity. And that's why the companions went far and wide. They went far and wide and actually the Christians
what they are doing in terms of making Dawa is content
dickery to what Prophet Isa taught them.
Even in even in even in the Bible, I have not been sent except to the lost sheep of Israel
that's in that's in their own books. What did Prophet Isa Jesus is is as recorded to have said in their own book. I have not been sent no no except for the to the lost sheep of Israel. So that's okay. Who who is who is he said to Bani Israel, when Israel and so they're on their people take it all over. Right. So all over who is that prophet that was for everybody?
Well, my son NACA Illa, Rahmatullah and me, we have not sent you except as a mercy for all not only the all of humans, the jinn also.
Oh, and then you might say, why? Well, because Allah knows that after his time, after that time, that people will be connected.
People will be connected. In the old days, people connect, were connected during the time of the prophets of Allah how to serve. And afterwards, the companions went everywhere.
Where do they go? They went everywhere. How did they read how to where did they go? They went from the Arabian Peninsula. And that's exactly why Allah subhana wa chose that area because it's in the middle, called the Middle East, it's actually in the middle of the world.
The middle, you might think, what's the middle of the world? You want to go to Africa? Right? There you go. Asia is where the Europe is right there. America is a little bit further.
Right. But everything wherever the people used to live was that area, in that area. So when the Companions left, they went, that's in the middle. And why is Mecca in the middle? By the way? It's because that's where the land started.
Because when ALLAH SubhanA wa that first created
everything, what was it?
On Earth was water. There's water, there's nothing. There's water.
And you know what, according to geology, when the earth first was, what when Earth first formed? What was it?
It was water. And then land started coming, as you know, as a result of everything, you know, this is, according to science, right? And it's not something that contradicts what we have. It's just, you know, these are scientific. These are scientists who say they weren't there when it happened. But they're after they're studying about how volcanoes work. And so the first place the earth, that landform anybody know where that is?
in our lab, it will the alumnus, Lady be back at America, but also that was the middle.
And you might know how how do you know it's the middle? If you look at all, you know, some geological books, when they have what's called remember all the land, America, South America and North America, if you look at the continent, what does it look like? It looks like puzzle pieces, if you can put them all together, right? If you put, if you look at Africa,
the west coast of Africa and the east coast of South America, they look like they
puzzle pieces that will click that will connect right. And the same way with the other pieces. Right, the other pieces, then Australia fell down there by themselves. They started drifting down. And you know, and if you look at the, if you look at Africa, also on the eastern part, and if you look at Asia, you will see that you can put all of them together and they looked at that they said you know what? This used to be one together. So where did it start the land?
They used to call it Pangea when everything was 1111 Lamb, one landmass. And when that landmass started, do you know if you put all those puzzle pieces together? What's in the middle?
What's in Mecca?
Because we're in the middle,
that's the middle, you put everything back in the back, put everything back together. It was right in the middle is Mecca. That's
what he call it. Africa went down this way and then it's broke off this way, Europe like that way. You put everything back together right in the middle, the middle of the Earth, right in the middle of the earth. So
I'm also planning on set the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to all of humanity because he knows he's all knowing, and he knows what's going to come. Like right now. The whole world is one
it's like one village. You know, in your in the village, something happens a village you hear right away, right? Right away if something happens, like at the end of the village, the last house in the village, the other side here is right away if something big happens. Right now it's the same thing we hear right away. You are so far away, you wake up, and you hear about an earthquake in Turkey.
We were not there. But it's like one village, the information. So the same way, when it comes to the deen of Allah subhanho wa taala. Everybody knows about Muslims. Everyone knows has access to Islam. You want to study about Islam, you can study about Islam. There are now there are Muslims everywhere, besides the fact that there are Muslims almost everywhere. That also you can have access, you can communicate with any Muslim, even if you're not living in a city where there are Muslims.
Right? And you can still communicate. So it's like the whole village is one world I want. The whole world is one village. And that's why also some of the scholars have mentioned also, when it comes to the
the difference of opinion that's coming up what are we talking about? The the halal, the crescent, right? The the sighting of the crescent, right we have every year we have Moon fighting, I mean Moon sighting,
every single year.
Should you fast or should you not fast? Hey, they saw the crescent, we didn't see the crescent? Should we fast or should we not fast. And so this is based on you know, the old days also it was more difficult to communicate, somebody sees over there, it's cloudy over here, you don't get the information. But now somebody and somebody in Europe sees the sees the question. They can they have proof for and they see it, you hear right away you all the way here and and and in the western part of the United States, you hear right away. Right. And we have the sun has even sat in our place yet.
And we already hear about it already. So that's why some of the scores are mentioned, we're just like one village right now. As far as the sightings there, then it should be applicable. Also others have of course, there's the difference opinion concerning this. And they have said you know what, no way way, it's different. Because just like when we pray, we pray different timings. Because you know, because of that. But when it comes to prayer, of course that's different. But when it comes to the sighting of the moon,
you have you have to understand you only you only say one time and after that, if that person has that sighting, the moon is going out. If it's already decided, then of course, it's going to be clear after that. And then people will come afterwards, it will be easier for them to see, it will be easier because the older the morning or older the moon is, the easier it is to see. But if they didn't see it yet, of course, then they wait to the next day the fast if it's already past them. So we know that, you know you start from the east to the west, just like the sun sets or rises from the east to the west and munafo, or the siding of the moon starts from the east. And it goes out all the
way to the west. And so we are pretty much at the end. And that's why I always tell people I live in the end of the world where at the end
of everything, this is the end, right after this the Pacific Ocean, the largest ocean
and the largest ocean. So we live in the end of the world right now, in Seattle. That's why when you want to go somewhere, you have to take 14 hour flights, 13 hour flights, even in the United States, you have to go very far.
So we said the fourth is the in law to call people, the Arabs, all of them. So the Prophet Salam was all in order to call all the Arabs. And then the fifth and final is to reach everyone, humans engine until the end of time.
That's the Dow that's the final stage. And that's why that What did the Prophet sallallahu some do?
He sent messengers
when he defeated the Arabs, right after, after a low Davia when when they stopped fighting, and they had an agreement,
an agreement in Arabia, or agreement pretty much in Arabia, there's a peace treaty. And that's the tweet of hotel holiday via after that, as the messenger of Allah sent in letters to call people to Islam, he sent to all of the kingdoms and all the Emperor's and kings around to Natasha to Heraclius, to the Emperor of Persia and to Yemen, to Bahrain, to Egypt everywhere. He said to all the leaders inviting them to Islam. You
For inviting them to send. So he was sent to all the other prophets and messengers of God, they were sent to specific people. They weren't sent to all of them so you don't hear about Prophet, Prophet Musa alayhis salaam, going away from that area. Hey, Prophet Musa, why did you go to China?
Why did he go China? Well, he wasn't ordered to go to China.
Wasn't ordered to call the people. But the Prophet sallallahu lism sent the Companions as far as they could go. And of course, they ended up all the way in China and also even Indonesia and Malaysia, who got to us that who got to the area, the merchants that came from,
from Yemen, right? And that's why you even have in Indonesia, you have a Yemeni community there. Even now you have like you have any community. They went all the way from Yemen, and it's up all the way the islands of Indonesia to this day. To this day, they're still there, right? And they came and they call people to let Illa Allah, they call people to Allah, Allah, Allah. And then, of course, now you have. So that's, that's the,
the Dawa, the Dawa itself. And
so that's in general, that during the time of the Prophet salallahu Salam. So what was the stages of Dawa in the Sierra? The stages? What's the difference between this? Well, we're talking about the stages of Dawa and zero, it means that, how did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam start in this era? And what were different stages, because there are different stages in the in the Dawa. And then we're mentioning this because we're going to cover it and Sharla each stage. The first stage is a DA, Surya. This is the personal data stage. And this is the first three years,
the first three years, how did this what what did this stage and phase look like?
What did the stage and phase look like? So because the Prophet Salam is that order to order or to call the parish? Right, so that's the first stage. So how did the Prophet What did the Prophet Solomon do?
Right, his people. First thing was, of course, he started with his family. And now he has to call the Quran you can't, he goes up, and he's inviting them, right? But be for the first three years the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the first three years, the Messenger of Allah Salam did not go out and invite people publicly. He started inviting people individually. And some people accepted Islam. And they did not let anyone know why. Because if they let anyone know, then they would be torture. They would be tortured, and they would be harmed they wouldn't be made fun of. And so sometimes it's difficult for them. So this is a stage that Omar HotJobs sister when she accepted
Islam, she did tell her family. Right, Omar didn't even know. Omar Katara did not know that his sister accepted Islam. And the Muslims would meet in Darrell Arca and our commitment I will Arkham. And he met they met in Donald Arkham because he was he was someone who others did not expect him to accept the message, because it was very, very tribal. And the tribe that was the rival tribe, the arch enemy of the VA, sort of like you know, in the rival tribe of Banu Hashim was who then Omaha Zoo, and they were the tribe of Abuja had the tribal Johanna Bulma, whom they hated. They were always competing. You know, there's some tribes always they don't like each other. They don't like
to get married to each other. And if if their daughters like someone from the other tribe, no, no, no, we don't marry that person. You don't know what his great Greg, Greg, Greg, Greg, Greg, Greg, Greg, Greg, Greg, grandfather, did
you know what they did? Right as
they go away in the past, you don't know. They're not the same people. That's like how many generations before one person did something bad ruin the reputation of the Oh, Hova whole family or tribe. Right. And so, you know, that's my that wasn't Jamelia. And that's still happens in some Muslim cultures Right? Right. You know, allow them to marry from this tribe because they have a reputation for this and that even though that brother must be mashallah maybe the most practicing amazing brother kind nice everything No, he's from that tribunal. So they had the same thing they have the clans also aren't rivals, the ones that they hate each other has been on Hashem zoom. And
so there were some people who accepted Islam
And he was amongst them a lot of commitment to the outcome. He hit his hit his lap. Why? Because this was personal. And so some, some some people would accept Islam. Like Saddam who pass.
He said that I was winter one. There was one time I was 1/3 of Islam.
And then if you look at the people who accepted Islam, oh, no, it's more than they're more Muslims than that. Why would you say you went there? Because he thought that he was the third? Only? He thought because he didn't know any other Muslims. Abubaker Yeah, okay. And the prophets of Allah. That's it. Any other Muslims? Yes, there are many other Muslims, but they didn't come out,
man. So what's the point in that? What is the, what's the lesson in this? The lesson in this is if you want to start something, you want to have a strong core group first. You understand? You want to have a strong core group of people whom you can work with. Let's say for example, you want to start a, a, an organization or a community or Islamic school? Who do you go to first?
Do you go make an announcement? Brother? I want to start Islamic school who wants to join? Raise your hand? Is that gonna work? No. Because there are some people. Yeah, they'll raise your hand, but you know what they're gonna do.
They'll ruin it. They won't help. They won't help. They just want like, you know, if you want if you just want fame and name and so forth, it's not going to work. They don't want to work. Right? They don't want it so you want to find out you want to go into it. Hey, I know someone who's really Mashallah. Really good brother. He's honest, works hard. Let's get him. Then you go to another person. Hey, I know someone. Let's get him. I know this person. Yeah, he's got a lot of money. Let's go. And he's good, brother. Let's get him.
Right. So you bring him and then you have a strong core group. After you have a strong core group, then you can go out and he asked for more help Brother, we have an organization here. The president, he says this is the Secretary the treasurer right now. Now if you help out, okay, somebody wants to he wants to help. Okay, come join. Right, come join. Okay. Hamdulillah you come and he's not good. Let's say he doesn't help your brother. You know what we've already said here. You don't want to help out. You're just just, we're okay. You know, we're okay. We don't need your help. If you're going to do that, you know, we we want people who are serious. But if he started from the beginning,
what's he going to do? Now I started also not, we're not going to leave a breakup.
And you're gonna get nowhere. Right? So you have to have strong core group where people you get used to first. So in Islam, the people who started at the beginning who Abu Bakr, then Abu Bakr goes to the people whom he knows, like Arthur might have not found the law, or a different genre, and all the people who are like really, really good, really close, and who are very, very sincere, the Sunless Sea, deliver this message message to this person, and that person. So next time you want to start something, find the people that you can work with first. And then you can bring other people in. And once you can bring other people in, and then you already have a strong core group that you
can work with that you can that you can trust, and so forth. Because if you don't do that, you know, there are things that will happen I told you about person about the, you know, community, one of the brothers got together, you know, they, they wanted to build a masjid, and you know, they got to Masha Allah, like they did. They were able to, you know, to the point where they they went to the government and the government gave them land
the government gave them land and it's like huge piece of land and one of the most expensive piece of land and if you build the muscle if you all you need to get the money to build it will give you the land
because in some in some countries, they have different rules. You know, especially when it comes to
when it comes to like religion, sometimes they're more open and they'll they'll donate the you can use it you know, the churches of course take advantage of this right? But they can't just say it's only for Christians or Jews only. Right and so the Muslims were given a huge piece of land a
huge piece of land and everybody and they all you have to do is collect money, and you're responsible to build it. So the brothers got together they have this piece of land in the most one of the most,
you know, the best location in the country. Right? And it's huge. It's not smart because right now that please, please a piece of land. There's a there's a mall there. They built a mosque with a huge piece of land right to build the Masjid. The government gave the Muslims and they collected money collected money, then they got enough money. Right when they got enough money, one of the brothers took all the money, he went to his country left, took everything. He took everything.
He left the country. He took all the money and left the country
Because you work with people, you start calling people and that's what we need to do and you don't know them that well.
And everybody's okay, let me join let me join. And of course there are some people who are wolves.
Right they're like waiting for that occasion and he's waiting for all the money right then he takes it off Subhanallah I don't know how someone can do that. Like this did not know that I lost his
organizations they opened offices for the people don't do this. Yeah, that to some people. Ombre
Subhanallah it's not just some people Yeah, they
