Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa sallam Allah both right Nathaniel alameen, Medina Mohammed in while he was a big marine robot. First of all, I would like to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for giving us this opportunity to meet with our brothers here in Qatar in Doha, here at the Federal Center, to study together into benefit and to learn more about Islam. Secondly, I would like to thank the brothers have been out for having personal run, and inviting me as a guest speaker, and this opportunity to come here and to participate it has been one I hope we will have very fond memories in the future inshallah, it was very difficult to get here. And it's very, very
difficult so far to start as well. But Alhamdulillah perhaps this is just a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And even though the hardships have been very difficult, each time it seems to work out the last day, which was just a few minutes ago when the wireless internet was turned off because the brothers are with us online now and Chad Islam, which was
done by Chavez, this mela, any good Baraka in his age in China has dour and he invited me now recently to become a teacher on chat Islam. So I joined recently with Shifu in teaching on chat islam.com and the brothers now they are live with us on the internet. And I don't know if this is the first Have you done it before and for now. So hopefully challenges sooner has ended I will continue inshallah in the future, as well inshallah. So we didn't know how to turn on the wireless. Somehow I got turned off on my computer. And I don't really know too much about computers, they're just the basic things. So the brother, I don't know, is that okay? Here, he knew the problem that he
fixed it for us. So I'm gonna, every problem we have, we are faced, we have found a solution so far from the law. So it's worked out and handle even the problems we face. If we focus on benefiting from our problems and shall our problems in the dunya will become easy for us. And as the province of alyssum said, algebra and geometry movement.
Any exchange the affair of the believer and the unbeliever all of it is good. When I say how the Indian Movement is, and this is only for the believer, because if he has hardships than what he is patient, and it's better for him. And if he has good times, then he thinks the loss of final autonomy, and it is better for him. And inside the sub panel in every aspect of your life. If you sit down and think about it, you will benefit many benefits from the hardships we face when I came in. For example. Now, we had a problem with the key in the door at the hotel, every time it won't open. So when I go to the floor, we have to come down and get somebody to come up with me. So I'm
looking at the time I'm losing 510 15 minutes each time I go for slot. And last night when I came back, it wouldn't even open. So let it come with the screwdrivers and open it up. So I said so to left, I said hamdulillah. And before that, I had a very important important meeting after my laundry didn't come so I had to come go with an old job. So as I look for the good, I haven't found it yet, maybe there was a low item. But when I said that I thought about the door. So at the time it's being wasted now with this door. So I thought about remember the story, Manny Rahim Allah when he had to do in his house. But he said, he saw how long it took him to open the door which taken from his
library, the only time he will leave rahimullah was to go to the masjid, or to go inside with his family to eat or to use the bathroom, what have you. So he saw when he opened the door and close each time, it would take maybe 1520 seconds to do that. So he thought he was wasting time. Because if you look at how many times opens in a day, he may be losing five, seven minutes a day. So the shift because you don't lose this amount of time, he thought about a door that he could just push and go straight to the other side of the house, it wouldn't cause any any waste of time. And Rahim Allah also said that he had an overly large library, they will go all the way up to the ceiling. So
they have to go up on the ladder to get to the top. And before when he is in domestic as well in the library there, he will go up to the top of the ladder. So you will know his time coming back down. He would read what he needed from the book standing on the mat at the top so he wouldn't waste time and then go back. So I said I'm the NASA press. We benefit from this. It's a sign for us to start focusing more on that wasting our time. And we benefit him that she was saying that we need to focus on benefiting from even things that they tend to be hardships in our life. I remember when I came back after I graduated from university in Sudan. When I immediately back to Sudan that there was a
problem during this year where the electricity handler now the electricity has been fixed this it doesn't cut off like it used to. But this particular Ramadan It was the first room of RFS didn't Sudan and about 13 years. All the other ones were either in Saudi Arabia or one time in Kuwait as well. So when I came this year, the electricity for some reason just kept cutting off. Like I said, these days handle as much
Better. But then these days he kept cutting off with electricity cuts off and living in a tall building also what cuts off the water and all this so it became a problem. So I sat back and I started to think about this howdy agile movement as well as the head and this is very hot, no electricity, the water cuts off flies coming around, where's the where's the good in this? So I was able to benefit maybe about 40 or 50 different benefits from this. And I went to a Masjid and one of the brothers picked me up and he said what do you see we go play with shift so and so today. And for me, I hadn't played with him before and his most viewed even though was rather far from my house.
Okay, let's go so opportunity. And I refuse during Ramadan to give any lectures because I was very tired and when I came back as the first Ramadan, so when I went to his Masjid and the second football, the sheikh said, and we have with us a guest today from America shut up the Rahimi he will give the talk after Juma. So I was very nervous when I talk about have nothing to talk about because I haven't given any lectures over Ramadan. So when I was walking up to the front from the back of the masjid, I remembered when I was sitting in my bed with her electricity, the benefits I took from this Heidi, about not having electricity. So maybe it's the topic of my lecture hamdulillah they
went very well. So humbly now you benefit from the difficulties you face. And hamdulillah at the end of the workout for that was the best inshallah Tada, the course we're about to take and tell our story tonight. It's entitled The methodology of Dawa.
And just so you see, they're on the same page, I want to see is everybody. What is the meaning of the methodology? What do you understand by the methodology of Bower?
There's no wrong answer. Anybody can try.
systematic way of proper systematic way of getting down. Okay. Anybody else? Good answer.
Okay, hey, there were there. Other ways that affect other people's will guide them to Islam.
As opposed to approach with,
okay, making a deal more effective. All of this could be true, but they're better mentioned, and I'm afraid a lot of people might understand it, he mentioned about how to have effect on other people, this is true. But this module will be a course called the techniques if there were there were said, there probably will be another course the methodology, it's more about any, what is the method or the methods you need to be on and you doubt yourself as a day to inshallah, then go to the next step is how to affect the other people. Because if you're not on the proper methodology, and you're dour, then the better candidate will either not be there at all, it will be very little. So this is the
main topic to talk about. And three lectures, obviously, also, this is another thing that was added on at the end, when I was and I said I would come the brother said, some classes in the morning for the brothers are working as a drive, and three lectures at night, one in Arabic and to an English session. Okay, no problem. All of a sudden, I found this another course three other lectures have been added on. So I thought about us. I mean, this was a little too much. But I will try to do it in Sharla, even though time is very limited. To prepare Alhamdulillah we see that now when talking about benefiting from the hardships. Recently, also, I'm living, I was living for a long time in
Sudan. So I might give a lot of examples from Sudan, one of our main machines, he passed away with him a lot in a car accident. And I thought about this this morning when I was preparing this lecture, because actually, I'm not supposed to be here. I'm supposed to be doing my master's degree because I agree with my supervisor that when I came home and the sum of these two months, I would just focus on writing. So when the brothers called me to come, I made it staccato. I said, Okay, I'll come in and ask permission. He gave me permission to come, I'm the law. So I'm supposed to be doing a masters and share from Sudan. His name is Sheikh Mohammed said Hajj, maybe he's come to
Qatar several times. So you might know who he is.
When he came, when he was also supposed to be doing his master's degree, he wasn't supposed to be given dela. The brothers were very harsh on him. So he would finish his master's because it kept him. But anytime somebody asked him to come for a lecture, he couldn't say no. So he was asked to go for a lecture. And the city I don't have to karate is still here with us, Dr. Idris, where the crowd is from
the borough's asked him to come. So he went to this lecture. And he was they were in a class and on the way and he passed away with a monologue. And this was a very, very, very difficult thing for all of Sudan, because honestly, he was the Prime Day in Sudan. There was nobody like him in Sudan, even with the scholars they have there. And I was with one of the machines recently when I visited, he was telling me about, you know how he died in the accident, because I was in the Emirates when he passed away. And the brother sent me the message maybe three minutes after he died.
And I was shocked. I couldn't believe it, because he was so young. And so you know, so good. And now you can't believe that somebody like that is going but it was his date. And he went mama except from him.
So what happened when I thought about any somebody I like this the shift anymore when he passed away? And he also how can we benefit from this because I said to the shift the other day we were sitting down, I said, The sad thing is not just that we love him so much. The fact that nobody can do what he did, honestly, let's be honest, the effect he had on the people in Sudan, if you put him in all of the machines together, nobody would have the same effect. He was that good at reaching people and having effect on everybody loved him all the different sex whatever their outlook was in Islam. They love the ship and he had a very positive effect on him. Rahim Allah. So I looked at when
he died, suppose the last time I saw him, before I travelled to the Emirates, he was actually in the janazah of another ship, who was very dear to us as well who passed away after an operation in Jordan. And I saw shift Mohammed he came up in three lines and he gave me Salaam since he showed up, but I know you're doing it's an umbrella game Saddam's he played the junos next to me, and that's the last time I saw him. And then I saw his janessa on BB TV, Maalox it from him. So when I looked at him,
and I looked at myself, the shape when he died was 37 years old. 37. And if you look at all the tapes, all the lectures, all he's done all the places he's traveled, and Belize then in his 37 years, and he was a member of the major scholars of Sudan
at that young age, that's how strong he was in his knowledge and the effect he had so I looked at myself and I suppose the difference between me and him I look older than him that he's actually older than me. He is three years old The only view done for Islam and look what he has done in his young age Rahim Allah so as an inspiration for me inshallah presser other brothers to strive to work hard for our Deen and look at his personal Cipolla. Even though he has passed away he is still with us because of the Tao and the effect that he left behind you. Bella behind him or him Allah Allah said the scholars and Bukhari Do you feel the car is dead?
He's dead, obviously. But do we feel if he's with us? Why because the Saudi is always with us. And it's so it's such a great treasure a treasure in our hearts. So my recycleable party mentioned sample query. It's like almost like he's with us today, Rahim Allah so when you have this positive effect in your downline you leave this behind you strive for Islam, you strive for loss, Matata, this is the effective relief
and the beginning of the series, inshallah I want to talk about something. When I was researching and gathering, what should we talk about? The brothers said they want three lectures. And like I said, this was not planned. So instead of to research and look, what should we talk about? sales, there are three lectures, that's not one lectures three, so I need to get something good. I thought we might need 15 or 30, after I started researching so much, Mashallah, in the field, don't try to focus on that thing, what I felt anyways, was the most important thing to benefit myself and my brothers with inshallah, and from where the things I found was beneficial, was talking about the
virtues of Dell, or the problem of Dell. And we talked about the virtues of Dell. There's always one virtue that everybody says, but when I was researching, I found that the scholars mentioned so many virtues of the problem of giving Dell and the blessings of giving dalla Who can tell me some of the virtues of giving down
the virtues mean the father of the blessings in them.
Now given and this is the example I wanted somebody to say, because if you ask me off the top of my head, this is what I would tell you to. Because is the main thing we know is the reward you get, as it came in, as I mentioned, the hadith of Allah robiola one that then is for you to grab one person to Islam, it's better than Homer and Nam, Homer now, this is the most precious type of red camels that the people at that time had, it was the best ever money, which uncocking three would be what? The Land Cruiser Oh,
which one which is the best I don't know about Land Cruisers know that. They accept the VX. This is like you're getting 2030 Land Cruisers, we accepted myself, this
is the best type of money. So this is what they had the most precious metal money they had during that time. So this is what the poster said him told him and this when we talk about the version of dalla, all of us say this, and this is true, is one of the greatest things, one of the greatest virtues. However, when I was researching feathers, so many virtues, so I want to share that with myself and my brothers who can benefit from that. And what is the goal? We mentioned the virtues of dow, what do we gain? Or do we benefit? Just as I was teaching the brothers this morning, or teaching them the rule of forever. And the first in the beginning of the book, the shift was talking
about the four things that every Muslim must know about knowledge and implementing the knowledge and then giving value and having patience upon it. And then he starts to talk about issues of tour he then after that, after this about Angola, so I told them, I said, just like when you play a sport, we're playing a sport. You have the coach is the coach at the beginning. It gives you the pep talk, he gets the players pumped up so they can win. So so those are the chef is doing an introduction now of the suit. He's getting ready for what's going to come about a pita and Tao and these issues you're facing. So also now when you learn the virtues of the dour.
All these numbers
inshallah 11 virtues. So when you
have these virtues in the end the reward we get from the devil, it inspires us inshallah to work even harder as to please the Muslim wattana and according to his religion inshallah tada The first of these virtues is that it is the job of the prophets and their followers. The job of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and their followers. They can give me a verse from the Quran, which gives this
this shows you this the manager of all the prophets submitted eligible the prophets is calling to della.
It could be
rasulillah that we've saved in every nation, I was sued Why?
That's the answer.
To stay away from that which is false. Susan, you worship Allah subhana wa Tada, and spirit versus force this verse in many other verses, well, it surely is clear that all of the prophets were sent with one message was to call to heed the call to the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to stay away from a fall root, which is any false thing. There's worship other than Allah subhana wa Tada.
So now we see that the following the prophets and himself to see them and their followers, they strove to follow this path, even if the path was was full of hardships and difficulties. If you were to look at the Sahaba well below him, and how they strove to sow Islam with us today, if it wasn't for how they, their Jihad they're striving for is to spread Islam and the true message of Islam with Islam whenever ever he says today, look at the story of this story, this Ahava, who can give me an example of the hardships that Sahaba faced in spreading Islam.
Then example, don't be shy. I ask questions because I don't want to be I'm just talking it gets boring for all of us. I want the crowd to interact inshallah
store for Islam. What did you do? How did you strive for Islam?
He gave a lot of money to help the provinces send them in as the provinces and said I never been in ministry from any money. Like I benefited from the money I've ever worked for the lower class from the class that he had when giving it Allah subhanaw taala put so much better. And the money in our pocket. Oh, Bella Juana, also broker and his story was he nicknamed this VIP?
Okay, I mean, he was the closest but there's there's a particular reason.
He's gonna tell us what that thing was what you said is correct. But
what is this certain thing.
When he told a story about when he went for this marriage, and that he wouldn't believe it, he went to the courts and then went to the heavens and this vulnerably with. So when I told him a story.
He hadn't talked to the publishers, and yet he heard this from other people. He said, we will lie. If he said it, then he's truthful. So he believed he believed him. So that is why he was nicknamed the sub B. Because he believed in him and knew the process. And he said, also look at the Hydra. The Hydra. Look how he strove to spread Islam, who was the main person basically and helping the parasites didn't prepare for the Hydra.
who uses money? Who uses camels who use his own daughters?
How dangerous is it now anybody who's helping out, could get killed to get punished. He's in his own daughter's help. He had his his servants come to them. He had his own son come to him with information. If his son gets caught coming in, he's gonna get killed as well. And then he goes with the Prophet. And he said to him, he goes with him. If he gets caught, what happens? He gets killed as well. He knows this. So you see on the surface level, the law and the stories. There's so many of them. I have a lecture which is available on YouTube. You can go back to it. It's called honor and I gave several examples of this as well how the Sahaba used to strive for Islam, several examples what
will happen to the Sahaba during the meccan period and outcome when he opened his house for the dour, even though it was very dangerous for him the Sahaba who were killed sumiya and yet
they were killed because of their Islam. Look, Abdullah was tortured, because he was a Muslim. And he strove and he would not give in to the pressures it was and the list goes on and on and on. You'll see how they strove for Islam, even if that meant being killed or being tortured in that path.
Diversity mentioned in certain verses 36 when Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the reason he sent all of the messengers that he sent to all nations and messenger so that Allah worship is one
No forces will force you to be worshipped with a mobile vote. If you look at this, it shows us we're talking about the methodology of Dawa, that the basis of the Dow of all of the NBA of all the prophets I named Mr. Lal was what
was the basis of the dour
and to stay away from
this was the basis of the dour. Unfortunately find a lot of Muslims today, they want to focus on other issues. They say the most important thing now is science in the Quran.
Essentially, the point isn't important, it is a mess, it's a good thing. It's a good tool, if you compare it to the techniques is one of the better techniques we can use today. And it's very interesting and very fascinating. But when we're representing Islam, we want to show the people who are non Muslims to say what is the difference between you, me and you? They say for example, now who say somebody is a Christian, we are worship God. So what is the difference? The main difference is where in the science in the Quran
in difference in the plan, you don't in the Bible. Anyway.
The way they worship Allah subhanaw taala by making sure by saying three and one by saying he has a son by saying this, here's the here's the difference. The main difference there isn't to heat. So now into the show them the difference in between us and them. And this is the main difference. Myself somebody who became Muslim, when I became Muslim, this is what affected me. There was other issues. Obviously it affected me but the main thing was the issue of to eat. And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he focused his power and built his down to heat, you see the effect of the dour later in Islam. in Mecca, do you have the verses which are divided into two
The verse is divided into two types. What versification kingdom during which the meccan and there was a kingdom during the time in Medina, obviously this not mean exactly a mecca, Medina, the Baba is a before and after hit Europe as the scars of tips you mentioned, what's important is that the commander in the meccan time in focus with a focus on to issues of Turkey, basically, we talk a lot about Turkey, but it focused on two issues of Turkey. Does anybody know what the two issues are?
the only the only loss Matata has the right to be worshipped. And going against the shirk. That was the main thing. Here was another issue of email that the Quran Mecca focused on I had a lot
of the belief and bath and hereafter that we brought back to life and held accountable for our sins. Who knows why the problem focused on the second part of the month, so much during the second period.
Because the the US of the belief of the people of Croatia, as they didn't believe they will be sent back after their death. They thought that they were they that that was it. So the focus, first of all the turkey correcting, there should be hair and folks who appear to eat and then focusing on what the hereafter so they know that they will be held accountable for what they have done in this dunya the purpose or something focused on this also in his power. And he focused on making the turkey strong and pure in the hearts of the believers during that time. So we focused on this, what is the effect leader when they came to Medina
when Islamic law was implemented when the Islamic State was formed, now at the beginning of Islam was alcohol made Haram, the beginning of Islam there wasn't a Heron
step by step you see all of these things that came the majority of the of the Islamic music came step by step all of the colors in the Medina except for us a lot towards the end of the second year the 10th year became a compulsory so all this time, you see the focus on it that was into heat. And you see the effect later in Medina when they came to implement Islam and then Islam spread over the Arabian Peninsula and then after the death of the prophets I send them the strong to heat also it took over the majority of the world because of the focus on the key which is to worship Allah subhanaw taala is one and to not join any partners with him Subhanallah so you see the effect of
this doubt when you focus on the key of the devil is to heat
was talking some time ago to some people this year he took heat to heat the heat. It's all Muslims we also know that why do you put so much emphasis on to heat they say this the pubs are stolen because they were new in Islam and there are so many mystery Kean polytheist during the time this is why he focused on to heat the Mayor de Medina and this is there's no need because we're all Muslims now. So I said okay, let's look into this if you have what you're saying is correct or not during the time in Medina
as it's opened up the most have opened up the Quran now and see what is the first thing the first timer The first thing we are ordered with in the Quran. And the first thing that we are forbidden from in the Quran as it's open up the must have.
Who knows the first number the first order number? What is it
In no time at the beginning of Iran and towards the beginning,
Bakar, I was in fact as the beginning but after the first quarter
Emirates is telling you to do something,
versus I think it's 21. And if you go to on the third page,
you'll find the first verse 2021.
You'll see that the first verse is
Ernie, he's telling mankind to worship the Lord that you have to eat.
And then the second thing, which is the first, the first thing we're forbidden from comes out of it.
And then palemoon do not make to Allah equals while you know. So the first
is to heed the first lady is to stay away from Shira conjoining partners in the loss of volume Tada. So for me as a Muslim, any Muslim we open the Quran and we see the first order that comes to us in the Quran is to eat and the first Mahi The first thing we're forbidden from a Chinook. They showed us the importance of the two subjects. Isn't that right? Also,
the silver is what so
makara Albuquerque, Santa Ana Mecca, Medina, Medina, Sam is the Delta. He continued even Medina to Paris, la Selim, when he was on his deathbed.
What were some of the things he said that he said to him when he was on his deathbed?
Because he talks about this a lot and a lot. And then he said, No, no, no. And Yogi and nosara, were more close the Christians and the Jews Why?
They're just to see the show because Muslims were extremists that
he said he was on a show why, why he was cursing him. If
they took the graves of the prophets as places of worship, he's wearing his alma mater do the same thing to him to worship Him. He sent him now the danger of ship and the importance of heat as he's dying, it slept with cinema. So it shows you once again the key of the Delta is the delta to heat. And also he said have never had the locker room he cannot threaten nasai submarine marine.
And he said, he said do not over exaggerate and praising me as the Christians over exaggerated and praising he said the set of meridian. He said because the early ama servants who say the servant of Allah and His Messenger, Allah Azza wa sallam says this now as he's not he doesn't want his his companions to fall into the same thing. Because of the prophecies and he is the greatest of all of mankind. He's the greatest human being. So it's easy for somebody who has that much love for somebody that great. Any chiffon can call you to what to find out the internship. So he's running his own lab at the dangers of this, as he is on his deathbed alley, salat wa salam. These are some
of the examples no one cares about the importance of focusing the Tao of the proper methodology. And Allah is focusing on what the prophet said Allahu Allah He was sending focused on and there was the focus on to heat. And if you look throughout the Quran, as well, we see
that we mentioned the first virtue, that it was the job of all of the Prophets, and the job also of their followers that came after them. And the Quran focused in many different styles talking about the the dour to the publisher sent him showing that this was one of his main jobs. And one of the main reasons he was sent at least that was sent him
who can send me a verse that shows the process and was sent for
any verse in the Quran that shows one of the reasons the person was sent to mankind was with our
general but I'm saying if we're looking at verse For example,
witness, Mashallah one of the most when I sent him to all mankind, as a machine as a, as a person giving birth has no water to them. Also.
Other verses, if you look at certain human was different here.
So, those 45 or 46 would say, yeah, even in
the same meaning as via the verse, the second verse and dianella as a guide to Allah subhanaw taala. So one of the main reasons he was sent Elisa to a Salaam was to be a guy who shows you the importance of one of the main jobs of our beloved Prophet sallallahu Sallam was to be a day. So now if you become
Die and somebody is going to allow you not only on the Manage of all of the profits, but one of the main reasons that our beloved prophet I slept with Sam was sent was fidella will find other verses that show you the order. Audrina is in order to Emma and as you know in the Arabic language when the Ummah comes the mo when it comes it's an order is telling you something that you must do or do you must do as a Muslim. So, this is the first lesson was ordered and also his own to give dour
also as soon as he said to Salim is
filled with examples of his life in Bella and we're going to focus some of the series inshallah on some of these examples in the later lectures inshallah Tada. Also,
the third virtue is that it's not just a footbridge, that is something you get rewarded for. It's actually something that is wajib upon oma sometimes compulsory, it's not something now that it's an option for them to do. That's right now for example, we see like Marcus phenomenal puff, we think the government here because they realize that this system, it's not an option. So you can do it so much that it's logical for them to do today, then what is compulsory upon them, and this is something that he thanked him for the Dow when I was watching who can give us a verse to show us that that was legit upon the oma. The Dow is logical number I was telling the brothers today that we
used to go to the lessons of chicken with me and Rahim Allah and sit within the harem, and poseen are always focused to sit behind the anode. Unfortunately, there's no mode, you can sit behind a pole, he has no poles in the budget. But he says you get up and say the verse, As we do this shall be so scared to go to his lessons, that I've always been sure I sit behind something, so he wouldn't see me because he would get up. And he has to say. So now I use the same style, but I'm not gonna do any, I just want to participate in the method in general, they can give us a verse that shows
also an element
that shows you now in this verse, delta code, also, it's an Emirates in order a group of you that call today, which is good and forbid, that which is evil. So this now shows you also that the Dow is legit. So you remind us whatever the virtues and the importance of the dowel, but it's not just something when you do it, it's nice to have you get the reward for like this. You mentioned, this is the thing that comes to all of our minds. That is a value rather than this. And so no doubt, it's a great part of the virtues. But also you're doing something with refilling a wardrobe upon yourself as a Muslim. And that's why when I was in Canada with a brothers, at the end of last year, when we
talked about being a Muslim, and in our Muslim society,
which I mentioned to them that you have to realize, as a Muslim, now you represent Islam. So all of the negative things you do it represents who Muslims represent Islam, and how you act, how you all the things you do. So you're here representing Islam, you are a de, whether you want to be or not, as a Muslim guy, if you live in a non Muslim society. Now, in a Muslim society, if somebody goes astray, everybody's Muslim, is not looking the same way, as representing Islam. They see if Allah de he went astray, but in an anonymous society, so look at the Muslims what they're doing. So he's representing Islam, he said that either to fail, or to share to evil, whichever one he chooses to
be, Jesse, you have to remind yourself of this constantly, when you are living in a society like this, that you are representing Islam and the poor to represent Islam, and the Muslims in every action that you do.
Also, in the process of setting the head even said, We're already vulnerable, and we will
rely on him to tell the people about it, even if it's just an idea is to show you as well, what to render stephanus will know if and even something as small as just one verse, what do we gain from this hadith? So it's an order, such as you have to do it when he said at least that was Ceylon
and he said, The even as small as one verse, I want you to think about it. What do we gain from this
is this one verse?
spread the message. spread the message so
anyone can make our test. You don't have to be a scholar to make dour. Anyone can make dour.
But it's important to realize that you only make Tao without you know what you don't know what you say.
You don't know if you if somebody starts talking about Islam, you explain to Islam they get into things that you don't know about yourself. Hold on. We have essentially called phenom brothers. They're they're specialized you can go to them and I tell them more. I've said all i know i'm not specialized, but you told them a little bit you open the door for them last night. How many of you played a show here last night?
Anybody nobody said last night
about Paul Kane and
He was what he took his Shahada given the Shahada last night, when he took his Shahada who brought him here? The Delos One of them was his sponsor here. So those
of him becoming Muslim, they told him he was ready
he became a son here last night We ask Allah to guide him and to keep him from religion shala so we can we can call to Islam with what we know even if it's something small and it's the shows that all Muslims must call to Islam, which is something very small. I'll show you something hopefully I have it in my pocket I'm gonna take out and look foolish but one of the brothers showed me something good evening Bella. Okay, here so
now for example here something is easy and giving our this brother May Allah bless him he printed out a whole bunch of these as well as copy and have dinner with him tonight so I'll do some more in Shall I reminded myself, I keep these in my wallet. It's an it's a call about a website called Islam religion that calm Islam religion.com and it says here to learn about you may discover about Islam and Muslims. How medicines work in the Gulf society
and a whole lot so now this way for example, me and shipment Omar went to buy some things from the supermarket. Anytime we stopped there will be a Filipino lady who was working and doesn't any she's now Muslim. So you say to her
man about Islam and Muslims and you go on it and has it in six different languages Mashallah, we have English, Spanish, German, French, Portuguese, and also Russian 64 languages, and they have people on there 24 hours a day, and chat. And hamdulillah it says here that Muslims can become Muslim everyday on this website. But they're saying now the latest physics is that it's six Muslims a day or 60 will they become Muslims on his website? So something is more or less Do you have to have em now it's
not about Islam and Muslims. So, this easy is one of the methodologies the one of the techniques, it should be for the other course, we gave it to you for free inshallah, in this course.
So this is one of the ways of giving Dawa, even if it slipped in small window is the process in addition to select
the date you is
taking also from the verse the brother mentioned, what is the reverse that Mr. 104, we mentioned before,
And those they are very successful. So firstly be successful, we benefit as well to the virtues. If we're going to be successful as an oma, then we have to what have Tao and call to Islam
owner. So these people are the successful ones, the ones who caught the tower. So this is one of the things that we gain from Dawa is that we be successful as a nation as an owner as well. Also, if you look, for example, at the virtues and sort of the benefits of sorts, and also, when Allah subhanaw taala mentions the four things we mentioned at the beginning of the stool of Vanessa, which is what the knowledge and the
knowledge and then the ML, implement his knowledge and then the DAO according to their patients upon it. And also part of that says at the beginning of the of the surah will also in male, insane and ethical. And she talked about last night,
one of our brothers and
he told me we're gonna go for a three minute walk to get something from the market across the street, but it had been an 18 minute walk Mashallah. So this is one of the ways you brothers, they tell you may perhaps you need to lose a little weight indirectly. So it's, it's very close to minutes.
So walking, you know, Mashallah. And it's hot, it's July in Qatar. So we're sweating, we're losing weight. Mashallah. So indirectly, he's giving us exercise. And Tony has indirect doubt that you need to lose some weight xalapa benefit on the way we're talking about different ways of benefiting and knowledge. So we talked about the importance of the Arabic language. So for example, will also be explained, obviously, and the beginning of the dose, or the lesson.
So I said, Now, how can you explain this to somebody who doesn't understand Arabic? Now we're going to put emphasis on learning the Arabic language for those who don't know Arabic? Because it's impossible. You have all these translations here. How many transits? Do we have? How many languages? Do we have here? several languages? Well, now you won't be able to stand this these three verses, if you don't know the Arabic language, because the Arabic language is that straw? And is that deep? The old me will answer and then after that, the techies put the emphasis in in Santa leviosa. In Turkey, the name and the fee. It's a parenthesis on in this world, Turkey, and then the force of being
nearer. How do you understand this, you don't know the Arabic language you won't be able to stand it. So this is a reminder to all of us to strive in any minority knowledge to learn Arabic language. And obviously, we'll talk about the methodology of Dawa, you must know the language of Tao and the language of the foreigners.
So all of us must strive to learn the language. The point is, the fourth point or the third fourth virtue is that as an owner, we'll be successful to develop. That brings us to the fifth point
will be victorious. The idea that I want here, it's not specific in Dallas, it's a general idea. And give me an idea, they will prove this
a verse that proves that the owner will be victorious. devour.
Give me another verse that would say, No.
If you finished the verse, it shows you what they did, what do they do?
Jimmy and then also he brings other actions they implement. So through his actions in Dallas, obviously, this is also one of those unique inventories very good, what else? a general idea about being victorious? No, do we need to do what certain things are super specific in all all aspects of life, to be victorious as Muslims
in Pensacola, so, if you suffer loss of Allah, He will support you. And he saw the great various ways of supporting and also panatela and supporting the religion of Islam is to power as the scholars majority.
So you see now from this is why I said I want to focus on these virtues when I was researching on the subject, because we don't think about these virtues. So parallel
as an oma, we will be successful, we will give tours all of the things of the great virtues of giving our the sixth virtue
is there will be from the best of people.
If he dies,
amen. As you know,
there is better than who calls to Allah subhanaw taala.
In many, many Muslim who is better than a patient who says, Who calls to Allah subhanaw taala, who is a die of course Tomas, matara, and does good deeds and says I'm from the Muslims. So now, I want you to imagine now, if you're working here for an hour or any company, how many of you feel if the owner of that company said you the best employee employee of the month, we have in the back here I was put outside the budget so the sooner we'll be in the machine, we put it on the outside wall here for now, employee of the month, how you look in the picture with your employee of the month or any company that again your picture Mashallah, looking the best as you can be smile, you're very happy,
because your employee of the month and this is what the material is telling you, the head of the company is telling you here the best of employees. So who is telling you now that you the best of people, Allah subhanaw taala if you're if you're a die if you go to Las mattala. So this is one of the great virtues is enough to be the best of people as discovered machine. And you see now for example, some of the skills they mentioned. Some a statement, I read them to you, as you can hear him, I said there is nothing better and more reward than giving Dawa. There's nothing better and more reward than give it our annual theme Rahim Allah, he said, it is the best of deeds, and the
most beneficial for the Muslim in this life and in the next Subhanallah This is when the benefits of giving Dawa, and you'll see that it's very clear from the verse and sort of the facilite 33. The seventh virtue is
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam may do
to the person
who spreads Islam who nurtures them and spreads it, that their face will be radiant and glowing and light. But there are a lot of similar inequality that he asked, he said, he is making to offer them the low make their face radiant and glowing in light, the person who hears his statement
that he understands it
and remembers it
in the first one,
then he spreads it to the other people. And these are the four different levels of knowledge when you when you seek knowledge, first of all, hearing it in his head at finest. You hear the knowledge, then after that you understand the knowledge, then you memorize the knowledge and then you pass it on to the other people. So the President sent him he made for the person who comes to learn the end and then to spread it after that. And we will see all through the methodology of dalla will talk about the issue of knowledge, the importance of it, and the importance of what as well as when it comes to a tsunami I'm not gonna go detail
of the actions because the guy it's a full time job to be a success with that.
You must seek knowledge and learn about Islam to be successful. Also, you must have very strong a brother in worship. And it's going to come and show us shortly hopefully understand we have left.
Okay, let's get into something. So now this is showing us will go into detail about these issues, I want to make it clear whatever the methodology the men had our as at these three things for any day Africa the sixth one is Bella, he must have the knowledge, the data itself obviously the working, and then also the Bible is very strong. And I will give examples on that, when we continue inshallah.
The eighth virtue, as you mentioned at the beginning, is the great reward of giving Dawa, and we gave the example with the Wii xR.
Now, the most precious member of money during that time, it's that greatest reward, it's better than having that the posters instead. And then after the show, the great reward of giving Dawa the ninth virtue is the word of the day will continue, even after his death, that the word of the day will continue, even after his death.
And the famous had the official
Children of Adam if they die, but all the deeds will stop except for how many? Three. So what else, his kids will pray for him and
they will pass on to others, as it came another Hadith that this adger take away from his will continue. And I'll tell you any very story, there were a story that affected me greatly. Recently, a few months ago, I was in Sudan, before I left to them, and I was living in I was there. Soon I was given an aneurysm look very familiar. And when I finished the football peoples came up to Mr. Gimme salaams. I noticed that this was the man who actually sent me to Sudan, or helped me go to go to Sudan to seek knowledge. Six months after I became Muslim, and I gave him some advice. I'm so and so. And I said, you sent me here to Sudan. He said, he's a little older than me. I think he looks
like in his late 60s, early 70s. So if you're afraid that it's apologize, I don't I don't remember like, Mashallah, I said, I said, Everything I do now in Dawa, and as I said, you get the word out from Bella. She's very happy.
So that's very good news. For me, I'm Bella. And I say no, it was it was something very precious to me to find this man, as I was given a football and he was down there and praying with me. And I got to meet him after all these years to hadn't seen him since 1995. So when I saw him after all these years, and I told him this news, he was very happy. And it was very precious moment for me. So see, now when you give that up, and somebody comes to Islam, all the goodies they do after that, you get the reward for that as well. So parallel, so it's also one of the great virtues of giving Dawa the 10th virtue and virtue Ana mentioned something. In the Heidi, one of the things that we tend to look
over to look at the cervical geria the leaving something behind, it's a great type of setup. And they also look at the thing about The L Word about the children who make dua for you.
There is it shows the importance of worth.
When your children property, Islam is one of the greatest forms of power is raising your children properly on Islam. And unfortunately, a lot of the brothers and sisters who get caught up in dalla are working in the field of delet. They tend to forget home base and they forget their own children. Some of them forget their own sets of parallel. But if you look at the Quran, you'll find that he starts
to check yourself first of all, and then your family, your children, your wife will have you from the hellfire. So you start with yourself and your family and it's one of the greatest forms of dour ever it is to focus on this imagine this awareness to focus on this. How to be
how many of us here today? Anybody ever 100 more than 100
the sisters upstairs as well. How many of us here are married?
Okay, he has more than one wife.
we pray for many years, so, those of us who have done it only three Mashallah hamdulillah. Now, imagine the amount of children so we said 60 or seven days now we're married, let's say each one of us because Muslims we have a lot of kids, Mashallah. So we'll see. We'll see five
do the math.
have 60 or 70? How many how many listings Do you have there now, but a 50
raise that number Call this number spread how he talks on the dial outside, giving lectures and, and quality to Islam and debating and this ship is let's focus first of all on home base focus on ourselves, we'll find there is now a Mrs. Little Gemma.
So first of all, and then your family after that, so we need to focus on a key point, observe ourselves and then and our family before we focus on the outside and our
number 10. The 10th virtue,
which is before the last one and giving Dawa
is the Darrow is one of the greatest forms of jihad, the J word. So they're not supposed to say this word is there. It's a Danish word to say, when you say it now, he said it Now the key words No. So now, Tao is one of the greatest forms of jihad.
Who can show me the proof of this from the Quran?
So before con 52.
jihad in Korea, and Arabic claims to be here that the mayor is busy mean What is he talking about?
We find something in the for another verse. We don't find the another verse we go to find the inverse of this is the most knowledge of this habit of
sort of the law or the law on whether or not
administrator or the law
says he said that he was talking about is the Quran and in the jihad, a marriage and the Jihad of dour. This is the last one I described as Jihad
a great jihad. So there is form of jihad is not what some people think they know which is fighting is today's word jihad is the power and the jihad.
And it's really the focus on his role when giving dour Jihad itself, which is a topic now which people are scared to talk about. It's an important topic, we don't understand the reality of jihad in Islam. Now, the issue of jihad, if you have to have a Muslim army to go to another country, what is the main reason why it would be because they would not let people what give Bella? So one of the main goals of jihad is to
spread our sincere the importance of Dawa is whenever we talk to the youth, who seem to be a little extreme in some of their outlooks, that when they want to do foolish things that harm the Muslims in certain countries and the left now we're in here we're giving Dawa The main goal of jihad is to give Dawa to spread the message of Islam. So now that we've reached the main goal, we're giving power and you want to do foolish things and corrupt that so we can't even give value most of paranoia is one mistake we're giving down. It's gonna come later, we're gonna talk about how to be successful as a day. The issue of having hikma having hikma and knowing what you're doing, and because some people
they do foolish things, they get into too extreme outlooks. And they harm not only themselves to harm the other Muslims. So now we're getting down here. So why should we want this to stop what is the focus on on an analyst rather described as being the greatest type of jihad, which is you had a bow and the jab the font, so this is my dad is one of the greatest virtues of giving dour. Also the last virtue as the most method described. The oma has been the best performer when they were quoted, you quoted dela which is what quantum chromatography is really doing. The best room where they came out to the people to all of the nation's words of mouth Boko Haram, okay, which is one of the
greatest forms of of power, which are the greatest forms of power, but to Muslims, and to forbid the call to greatness forbidding evil, or giving Delta Muslims or non Muslims because a lot of the times if you look at the western non Muslim societies, the evil they have fallen into, they need the slump, that nobody says this is this is a bunker, it's Haram, how this person know. Now a lot of them are raised as a normal thing. I remember when I was in Sudan, he given examples from Sudan. Organization there. They say we have two students who are French, perfect France, one female and one male, they want to talk about Islam.
So we sat down with them.
They don't know much about Christianity, but I saw the French people how effective they are from the the the way that the government, you know, poisons their minds, and how they have thoughts about us as Muslims. We started debate with him about the niqab and about the hijab
The gap a very good point. He said, This hijab is a job you see in the streets, the scarf, scarf is kind of the head. He said the woman has full makeup on
skin tight skirt and skin tight blouse. And she's covering the difference what's left. And she showed everything she has. So wherever here slfcu. Like I said, it's not from Islam.
And then we get into the issue of the niqab. They say that we have the rights were surplus company, country, we can forbid people from doing this. I said, You gave people a nationality to come to your country, how can you do this? And I asked her a question. So when you came to our country now, here Muslim country in Sudan, as in America, do we force you to put something on your head?
She showed up? She said, No. So this is proof now that in Sudan, what you call a terrorist country, a country who has genocide, and this which we know lies, all of this, I say you say about Sudan, I said, Sudan has more freedom, and more human rights than France. Because when you came, we didn't force you. So why don't we come you force us now, for women to take off the niqab? Or actually know what to say? Something as soon as you walk down the street, has anybody said anything to you have any battery to haunt you anyway? No. Has anybody given you mikhailova? If we have to pay a fine for an hour in a job in Sudan, she's a hustler. So she couldn't say anything. So Pamela, so you see now
Hamdulillah, the beauty of Islam that these people, they need this message to encourage Luca, Luca that they have now I encourage most of you think about forbidding the evil between the Muslims. Also the non Muslims will add this because they don't know. So this is what these are some of the virtues of giving our 11 virtues. And I chose this to be the introduction of this series, as I mentioned, because we always focus on the one virtue, even now, when I was researching diversity, the first thing that came to my head is at the buzzer mentioned, how do you evaluate or the lower the power the restaurant resources, so many virtues and getting down. And we remind ourselves of these
virtues, these blessings we get, we get Bella, this inspires us to strive. And it's more than one, it always pops into your head. Oh, yes, this that you get to have that they will continue. So it makes you strive and work harder for
topic we're going to cover and shall in this series, is how to be successful in getting dour, how to be successful in our dour.
And the face. And key point in this is knowledge is having knowledge of religion. Because a lot of people now we can cause more harm than good with ignorance they have about Islam. And people now, I gave an example to the brothers this morning with somebody who's ignorant. And he felt embarrassed because he didn't know how to refute the fact that the person had made eyeshadow on her a young age. And he wants to please men are Muslim to show them Islam as this and that. So he said, No, actually, there's no proof.
There's no proof came from actually I do it.
He said there's no proof that she was actually 18 at the time and again, they got married.
So as they change Islam, to suit these people, but if you know how to refute it, and I'm gonna go into it now, it's not the topic at hand. But if you had if you disagree with you in a different way, or you say, I will find out, I'll go to find out or go to a place that has people who are specializing don't talk about Islam without knowledge.
ignorance, as he
described it, there is no near maybe there there is no no need is. They don't need any more pain. Anybody ever heard of it? A book was called in Sheffield.
It's a book of poetry in by malema, Thema hemella. It's over 5000 verses of poetry.
And it's called the no nia. Does anybody know what's going on here?
Because ends with noon, each verse of poetry being the second verse. Well, there's two parts of each verse, the first, the second part, the last part of the verse, and ends with noon are all 5000 verses of it. So now, he said in his nania, and two beautiful verses of a mala, he said in jehu
where she fell, turkey with a pony, muslin or an omen Sumit in
Alomar of Bunny, that is ignorance. He said he is a disease that kills events is a disease that kills not a disease. It's 100 kills it takes you out.
And he said the cure for this is two things in order he said and loss which is the text of the Quran.
And he said that the doctor or the physician for this is allowed me to bury you anybody know the definition of burnout is RM as a scholar, but there are burning
Is this guy that is rock band? Does anybody know?
He progresses there's a definition that rock bass
gave for a narrow barrel. He said he is the one that teaches the people several of several MSL kubla kebaya. He's only teaches the people the basics of Islam before the major issues. And this is a very important thing for the day when you become a day and no person becomes a new Muslim, we teach them teaching the basics of Islam
in America, and whether just became Muslim, again, to say no, that's important you choose when to be Hanafi madhhab or Maliki mephibosheth?
extra money away from the Christians who have all these different types. A scenario communist, do you understand this is just the issues of
This is how you make will do and this is basic stuff, he doesn't understand this.
How to talk about this to Muslim intuition, the basic stuff, how did you make Voodoo, how did you do this are the
notes, which is your basic information. So this is the element of burying the shell. What's important is he mentioned the beginning of
the ignorance he described as being what
a disease that kills superior disease, HIV, and Acadia knock you out right away. Be careful, is the dangerous danger of ignorance in Islam. And so the key points for them to be successful is power is the knowledge. And you mentioned the knowledge before the knowledge and the dour and a bother. It's all one it's all one package. It's a full time job for the day. Who can give me some at the show the importance of knowledge in Islam, the status,
the virtues of knowledge in Islam from the Quran.
Allah smell, as you say, is the person who knows and the person who doesn't know Are they equal?
alone will raise and decrease. Those are the ways the ones of you who know and do with these will learn the skill of knowledge. Whereas children have knowledge.
And they want to truly feel a loss of Hunter wattana from his servants, or the older mothers, those were the scholars of Islam who understand is them.
The one thing in the Quran, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was ordered to ask for more of
the same thing to the person who was ordered to ask more of to increase in was in parallel with
Allah subhanaw taala said.
as he said, he said
the chapter that knowledge is before what
you say and you act before the actions
show us the importance of marriage in Islam is the key of Islam is the key of Gala. We'll talk about the methodology of dour there is no true value and no public Bell without knowledge. The province of Mr. Harada he was sent him said when you read the Quran,
or whoever Allah subhana wa tada wants, he grants him the the understanding of this Deen of this religion, the scholars of Islam and see we can maybe cheat a little bit some of those who are with me this morning. I want to understand from this Have you seen the brothers? I'm sure some of
you may have a similar DNA Stephanie Sadie
got the answer.
He gave him this Heidi, something else.
There was a parent with his daughter from the whoever last suppiler wattana was good for he will grade him understanding of the religion. I've never seen two other girls who have this in the morning. And one of the answer he gave me was Eddie, I'm gonna we have a brother here from Kenya. He wants to accept Islam
and just do the Shahada with him inshallah.
inshallah, I see where he's been. He was busy coming into Islam now but he wants to do is share that publicly and so inshallah we'll do with him say, so you will put up to me and say, a shadow
ilaha illallah wa shadow
Congratulations, brother and welcome shala to finish in Islam.
Ramadan heals chooses the name of salah and the shaving cream is right around the corner inshallah Allah a good name inshallah at a good time, inshallah Tada.
Okay, just to continue or we'll finish up wrap up inshallah, what we had started
and will open the door for questions and answers obviously inshallah I will
finish the Hadith just study
the audio for tomorrow, tomorrow, one of the machines. Interesting story, he said, one of the good methods of teaching is that you leave something that people want to know. So I said that it has an A meaning that is an apparent and has another meaning a deeper meaning. That deeper meaning will tell you tomorrow what it means. And the chef was telling me how he used to do some class every time. So one time he's teaching something in the car and get very, very interesting to the students. So shadow will continue tomorrow. He said, when the students get up, he's a very big student. He said, Well, I'll hit you with your finish now.
We'll finish it tomorrow talking about the notion of open the doors for question answers, do people just get up and ask where they send them to do okay?
So anyways, any questions or answers, inshallah, or questions, and maybe I'll have the answers inshallah, for what we have just taken a shower.
was the question? I address the question to you, what were you doing before? And where are you, you don't want to know why versus not maybe, but what I was doing, you don't want to know,
at all scared to run away.
Islam, for me was not just any a guidance,
guidance or division of truth, it was a lifesaver. Because I was on a path that ended in one of two ways,
either in prison, or in a cemetery.
There's no other choice. And we knew this, as a part of this crazy lifestyle that we had chosen. With some of the other time. I see now we see, I don't know, an English or an American anyways, it's like you sign a contract with the devil
is a very interesting life, like, action film, we do all these crazy things. But you know, the end of it, of all this action, all this pleasure that, you know, you're never going to be victorious on this path, you're either going to die or be killed, or you're going to jail, one of the two. So this is the path to power that I was on before Islam, even though I wasn't very good family, a very successful and a very wealthy family. But I chose to take another path to Panama. So actually, the next question that comes is how is your family's reaction when you accepted Islam, as it actually we're very happy now with Islam itself, but with the changes that took place after Islam, there was
a big changes in the night in the day in the sky near with a big change, major changes took place in my life. I was 18 at the time at a very young age. So what happened is one of my
friend's father, or my friends was on the same path. And he his father becomes about 10 years before that, officially, his son had not become Muslim.
I had an appointment with him at his house, unfortunately, that he was very forgetful misfortune for me. I was upset that he forgot. But then it turned out to be the thing that changed my life.
So it was in Washington, DC, and he forgot her appointment. So I heard his father listening to some cassette tapes in an uproar. And there was a teaching in Arabic and the meaning of English. And he's following along in his, in his quote on the Arabic English version. So I was always curious, I want to know about Islam. But we had a big misconception in America, as white Americans, which was about the Nation of Islam, which we know obviously now, there's nothing to do with Islam except for the name. And their belief is much further than the Christian or even the Jews belief of Islam. So now, the spirit is Muslim, they have the name and the media in America uses them to give a bad impression
about Islam to white America. So I think this is Islam is racist people from their beliefs say that Islam is the religion of the black people. And the white people they are devils is from the belief. So this is things we hear at a young age. So I asked him I said can I be Muslim?
He of course he said he said Islam religion of all colors. He said if you can be black, white, brown, yellow, pink, he told me a any color. This is for all colors. 100 original Islam. So I took from him hamdulillah during the day books, I said, Okay, I want to read more about Islam
and hamdulillah during that time, I read a little bit about
The Christian, the Muslim belief about Christianity and the Trinity wherever you choose had an effect on me. But like I said, I was 18 years old, 28 years old in America going down the wrong path, you don't have much time to eat.
So the books on the shelf about two months after that
I got in a car accident. There's another action film. In another table, you can hear what happened in that film.
But it was another series for an action film, the accident. After that I didn't have a car to go out, I had to get on the bus, another Metro to get where I wanted to go. And I was living with my grandparents. And they were my grandpa's, originally from the countryside, they moved to the city. So they're very basic people, they don't have anything from the modern luxuries of life. So these are basic telephone basic television, that's it. So very boring, and being in their house with them. So it was very bored and never had these books. So if you have anything to go go eat. So start to read a book about the Islam division of truth. And obviously, the first thing I mentioned before, in
the beginning of lecture, what grabbed me was this you have to eat. And they believe, you know, now as to be a Catholic, before you go to the church, you go to the priests, you confess your sins, to Norway for repentance. And then Islam illustrates Allah subhanho, wa Taala, and propane for your sins. So this really affected me. This is the first, a second thing which might seem very simple to a lot of Muslims. And as I mentioned to the brothers and Mexico in the morning, the other day, some of the things we do, the actions they implement, Islam only has a very positive effect on other people 10 nice things, where's the facility, the Muslim or Muslim, he goes to
relieve himself in the bathroom, and how he relieves himself and affected me in a very big way, the author of the book, now a lot of people are specialized in giving Delta Muslim this in this book is not a good book for non Muslims.
Allah, may Allah will work for them. So he mentioned some of the things you know that you have to be in a pure state when you go for a slightly have you. So I mentioned First of all, the Muslim has to conceive himself, maybe himself, he doesn't really have himself in front of others. And as Americans, as you know, Westerners bury themselves in front of each other, standing up next to each other. And I used to hate that even employees, I couldn't tell anybody that, you know, it's not for manhood, these type of things, but I used to hate it. Also, he said, the Muslims, they sit down when they urinate, so they don't have impurities on ourselves on the clothes, and they pray. For me, I
used to love to sit down, obviously, I can tell you about that before Islam chooses not being a man to sit down and urinate. And this is one of our purposes. So now we're proud of it.
So I read this, it affected me in a big way that the Muslims do this. And it's something I used to love to do all before it becomes a Muslim. So these two things basically, really stood out to me. And I decided that I want to become Muslim. I was out before I was religious, I had in my mind that I wanted to be religious anyways.
I mean, I guess to basically you know how to buy wouldn't be much in it, you know, most the time, I had a gold cross that I used to wear.
I believed in this. And I knew that we had to have religion in our lives, and I want to become more religious. But I have put my priorities in life at the age of 18. On the path I was on religion is number five. And whether things were the four things before them, then handle, the religion came and the tradition came before so became number one. And that changed my life at the age of 18. After accepting Islam, I stayed in America for about six months, as a new Muslim. And then I realized that, you know, I want to seek knowledge, I have to go out of America to find pure knowledge and better knowledge, if you want to have benefited from the ability to do a lot during that time. And
then I ended up going to Sudan. So there was no really particular reason I just saw this email, I told you who sent me there. I saw with his big turban and his big, just like this little Sudanese genovia, ceremony name. And I said, I want to go to Sudan. Someday I went to Sudan, because most Americans, we don't have the knowledge of what's going on around the world. We know 50 states and this is the world for us. What's going on even now, if you ask what's going on in Canada, most Americans don't know what's going on and Mexico's revolution. They don't know except for you know, people coming across the border. That's about it. There was going on in Mexico, the President was
the Prime Minister. What about the widow 50 states, a friend of mine? His This is the center professor, Dr. Fish of Idris funny story when it comes down about what Americans know about the world when he went to America versus he's from Sudan.
In the same interview, where are you from? He would say
I'm from Sudan.
South Sudan, I never heard of him. Now, obviously, genocide and all these lies that are in the media. They've heard of it now. But in those days, there were Sudan. So instead, I started to tell people I'm from Sudan, to the south of Egypt, to the west of Saudi Arabia. Okay.
So he said one time I was in the library, and I found this, the ladies work in the library. So where are you from?
He said, I'm from Sudan, to the, to the south of Egypt to the west of Serbia. She said, No, I'm not American, I'm European.
So this is one of the things I didn't really know where to go. And I saw this email and the message. So he was the one that sent me there. And then later to Medina to the seven, University, and Western continues. There's it those of you who know Arabic, I think the most in depth lecture I've given about how I became Muslim was in Arabic. There's some things on YouTube on YouTube in English, the ability to move them to the main page, they're on a website of the masjid in Canada and on the main page, so perhaps these these are customers to move them and shows how I became Muslim and English. But in Arabic is an in depth demo how became Muslim my life story. If you go to Muscat, badmouth
Mischka. dotnet on
you see, on the right side was a some hot produce, you see my name abderrahim McCarthy and as a
lecturer was actually on the radio, on TV, radio, the thought and the thought of the past as a normal birthing two years ago. So it's in depth and show you any in depth how I became Muslim in English. We did one in English and Arabic on TV TV, they're supposed to be preparing them for me now. So also, hopefully, we'll put them on the internet soon. inshallah.
The question is,
how do we, how do we differentiate between the nature of the practice of the art and the purpose of sending the packets because you have gotten the message.
Choosing from the virtues,
you paid attention to the title of the virtue, that it is the job of the prophets and their followers. So when you follow that energy of following in their footsteps, so you're doing the same job as the job of the prophets and their followers, so that means is that as well as Scott has mentioned, and that's enough, as a virtue as a public, that you're on the same path as the prophets and the message into into followers, this is the virtue because you're following the footsteps of the best of the creation, visual display by virtue user. So this guy said this at the end of the show, you mentioned as a virtue, they said, well,
it's enough as a virtue to be in the fall in the footsteps of the prophets and in the center, and to find the footsteps of their followers.
It became a virtuous biographic
the lectures on YouTube if you go to abderrahim McCarthy I believe they're very sporadic quickly on the on the thing stay the same way. It's on there you'll find it in shala there should be like four or five lectures now that are from Canada and one from India opening speech of the peace TV conference to as a nine and as I was leaving to Qatar coming to the airport, the brothers told me from theta TV then when I come back all of my lectures about 45 to 50 it should be if they haven't lost some of them because I remember the one Ramadan last year we did the miners and Ramadan they called me back and they said no form of bond that we've lost some of them which is I think 6789 so
we have to do it again. It didn't get done but I'm done after all there now it should be all 40 lectures hopefully that those will put them on the internet soon inshallah tada and of those and for now, we'll call them inshallah as well to be quick congealing putting on the internet after is reviewed obviously, there are potential for people to benefit as well inshallah.
Especially, they're giving some specific time
have we made a series well, three 740 4510 whatever it is, you're not finding any of this specific about going on dalla Muslim is a guy 24 seven all days of his life, and even how he sleeps, because we sleep in bed as opposed to sleeping try to imitate the parameters and everything will wake up in the morning with days because you wake up on the sooner the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said all aspects of our lives with days, we don't have to go out for a certain amount of days to be a day. And all the times I said something as simple as give me a card or somebody put a bumper sticker on their car. What do you know about Islam go to this website. All of this is our sole Muslim, a true
Muslim, he's a Dyer 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And it doesn't have to be a specific time or a sushi place he goes to a lot of
the thing is 10% or so. To launch a few more questions shall also enable us to send any any questions to the internet. You can go to McCarthy at
99 islam.com McCarthy and 99 islam.com and the questions will come to me there inshallah, as well
