alameen wa sallahu wa sallim
Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Marine MOBA, the beginning of shall of today's
lesson, the lesson shall listen of the series of the methodology of Dawa, we have in front of us a form which is being passed down right now. I request that all the brothers and sisters fill out this form. I don't know what half of the sisters for I think it's coming to them now, of course everybody please take the time to fill it out. Because we want to see any myself and the brothers who have been up any the opinions of the people who have spent these three days with us on this dowel methodology course. And we want to be able to benefit from their feedback. And we say this, just like I said the other day, when I was talking at the beginning, that sometimes they have a problem
and talking fast. And the brothers told me well yesterday Michelle, you talked very very fast so you didn't tell me when I was talking fast. And that's because I get excited when I start to talk and especially know some subjects about to heat seeking knowledge and you find as soon as these type of subjects that I love so much. So when I get into it, I get pumped up and I start to talk fast and so I can lose myself as I'm talking so anyways, I want you to be honest, I don't want all of the people to say oh excellent Montez it was you know, if you don't think it was excellent you thought it was boring you thought it was who could have been better by this Please be honest and Sherman saying so
we can benefit from the feedback on the forums and shallow tada also the brothers and sisters with us on chat islam.com we'd like their feedback to West the brother now the monitor to open up any the for the brothers and sisters we wanted about 20 brothers and sisters or more within with us any online sister being of the course Mashallah. So also we'd like to have their feedback that brother can open up now the monitor for them to send to him the email and he can send it to my email as well. And shadow Tyler
a few things as we start the issue, as I mentioned about the camera. When we have events like this, whoever it is coming the guest who's speaking Alhamdulillah the oma now we're growing and like I told the brothers in it this morning, as we were filming in the it stopped before the end and I said you know I'm there we're getting there almost there. And it's slowly but surely inshallah we're getting there. So in the brothers needs to realize when they're in an event like this, and you see cameras, two cameras are filming, obviously the goal is greater than just us being here today. The goal is for us inshallah, if there is benefit in what is taught and what is said, for the rest of
the oma to be able to benefit from it. So we see time and time again, that people tend to walk right in front of the camera like it's not even there.
Another brother, Mashallah I didn't pay attention. I was talking. He said he came up to get some tissues as we were talking the other day, and the brothers didn't like that. And they use it to give him advice. You shouldn't do stuff like that. I wish they were filming. He's cutting off the filming so we can get a tissue. So Panama I didn't notice it. hamdulillah but I'm saying in general these type of things when you see a camera, please try to go around it into the back because the brothers are filming this so they can benefit from the rest of the woman. And when I spent the time in India with Dr. Zakir Naik, I saw the importance of filming and how much he puts into it. And Michelle
Annie, they really really do so they can have good quality stuff for the oma. So in the future. When you're in a place that has a camera. Please make sure that you don't walk in front of it, or sit in front of it. What have you in general. I received an email today. And I received several questions last night about the book that I mentioned. I replied to the brother who sent me the email, but I brought with me some names of all books that are beneficial and seeking knowledge. And this is because I said the book in Arabic And I forgot the translation obviously because I have I have the book in English, but I've read the book in Arabic. So when I mentioned the name in Arabic, the
brothers came to me and I didn't know the name of it in English, the brother did he get the email I sent to him.
Okay, you can check it out in essence. So the book by chef Booker was a it's the etiquette of seeking knowledge, the etiquette of seeking knowledge. The book is called etiquette of seeking knowledge
by publishing in the UK, etiquette of seeking knowledge. Another book I found today was the book of knowledge by shift you know, they mean the book of knowledge Michigan with me and Rahim Allah, also printed by and he they are publishing in the UK. A third book I found which is beneficial, which is called knowledge by shifting bezel him Hola. Also pretty by the same publishing company. And adorning knowledge with actions meaning acting upon your knowledge, which is done by shift for senior arratia I haven't read it but I'm missing
To me, it's a good book as most of the scenes book, books in his field are good, so you can get these four books, all of them are printed, but he's had publishing. And if the brothers when he died, they hear this and shall only take 99% for the commercial end for you inshallah, so don't worry about that. Now joking, obviously, given the budget, so But anyways, they're the ones who printed all the books. So anyways, the books you can find there, you go to header publishing, and you can find them but the best one of these three is the book by ship book up was eight, Rahim altana. I recommend all the brothers get the book and read it and the brothers who have the Arabic
and can read the Arabic version, you can get the explanation of the book done by chicken with a mean. And this mission is important for the Muslim Arabic, because the Arabic of shift bookclub was a was not normal Arabic. And she had been with me and he was one of the most knowledgeable scholars of Arabic during our time. He says that the Arabic languages have bucha rahimullah, it's so deep, that when you read his books, you need a, you need a dictionary, then only stuffing the chicken with the means and it's not one of us. So any explanation of the shift for the book is very, very good. And it was translated by a brother who studied with us in the University of Medina.
And this in today's lesson, the last lesson
will ask quickly, what are we talking about yesterday,
the version only went in detail and knowledge. I didn't plan on going that in depth about knowledge, but I don't regret it. Because it's one of the key points to having the proper methodology and seeking and seeking, excuse me giving dalla is having proper knowledge of the religion. One of the brothers who went out sat with me last night, he said, you know, you said at the beginning, belly one you will acquire that you can rely on me the process I'm sitting the head even if it's just a verse. So that means you don't have to have a lot of knowledge for that. He spent when I hear you talking today, he said I felt I have to be like the mumble party. Because there was so much you
talked about and and I said that's not the case. As the professor said, he said below one you will know if even if you have something small you can tell about it. But like I said before, you don't say anything that you don't have knowledge about, but I went so in depth yesterday because this is such a key and such an important principle when it comes to having the proper methodology. And giving Dawa is having proper understanding of the religion.
We mentioned so far.
How many things two things Oh,
what are the two things you mentioned? and knowledge and what
actions now, the knowledge and action we learn and we act upon them. And we mentioned giving power seeking knowledge and the rabada it's all one package, when you're gonna be if you're gonna be successful in your power. And the third thing we're gonna talk about today is the importance of wisdom in dour and these three things. And shall there's two things that are coming are important as well. But these are some of the most important things in the knowledge and the acting upon your knowledge, and then also the wisdom. If we were to look into the Quran, when Allah subhanho wa Taala says In a nutshell, when he orders us to call to his pet do realize to be robotic. He mentioned
certain steps after that subhana wa Tada. What's the first thing he mentions? milkman The first thing he mentions, is the hikma with wisdom you call to the path of your Lord with Hickman and inside boccardi. It was mentioned in the Hadith of the process. And he mentioned when jabril came and he said to Salim, and he washed his hearts, in a wash bin of gold filled with wisdom and faith, a worshipping of gold filled with wisdom and faith. So he was the heart of the province I sell him with wisdom and faith. So this shows us the importance This is Heidi and shows us that from the foundation of the proper methodology and our and the core of the proper methodology and our his
And if you look at the status of wisdom in the Koran, what is the loss of Final Fantasy and salted bacara about the person who gets the hikma.
You tell him when you share when you tell hikma to Iran, that Allah subhanaw taala he gives the wisdom to who he chooses. And whoever has been given the wisdom, he has been given a lot of good. It was the end of the
11th. And though and those don't reflect on this, except for those of understanding who will help Bob. So those who understand and once you understand this, the importance of the hikma and the dour, so from the core of the dalla and the proper methodology and Tao is having wisdom, your dour and
time and time again. A lot of the problems we face now in the field of Dawa is not using hikma from our brothers.
And a lot of the problems we face as an owner as well today.
All times in all places and it doesn't need to change. So people want to come now and they want to what mellowed out a little bit they say they want to do things that
They know how long just so they can say, Take my happy take message. So panelizer sigma. Now, one of our brothers, he graduated from university, and he was probably the most blessed brought Western brother to ever have studied in Islamic University of Medina. Very, very knowledgeable. When he went back to America, one of the first things he did, was turned down his beard.
Because of the ECMA as what he says, Now, he wants to be Hakeem. He was the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that his beard used to fill his chest carefully had to lie to our vema it was a great beard is to fill his chest and is allowed to Scilab. So instead of wanting to be like a private seller, sell him he wants to be modern.
So he turns down his beard, and then he starts to do other things, which he knows goes against the sun now, he met with a lady who was clearly enemy of Islam. In her approach to Islam, she's a known lesbian and somebody who attacks Islam. She's from a Muslim family, but she's not Muslim. And she said to him, you as somebody who is studying Islamic University of Medina, I know you don't shake hands with women. He said, No, give me your hand. And he shakes hands with.
Why because he wants to know how this new approach to showing that we want a new version of Islam won't have Hickman where's the hikma? If this was a quiet hikma, our beloved prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam would have used it, but he didn't. So pantalon. So now achema is not making Islam Torah down and to make it soft. And then think what you think is good. hikma as the scars of Islam See, and who knows the definition hekman Islam.
What Roshi female but he is the owner
of Islam say, to put the thing in its proper place. And how again, Hickman is going to come. But achema is putting something in its proper place. So don't go against the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and to make contradictions in Islam. This is not using Hickman and hikma the fathers I sell them in several places in the dour. We want to go through a lot of examples and maybe a shout out to brothers they essentially want me to come back inshallah for some more courses in the future. Where the course we want to do is Dell techniques. But maybe we'll do a second part and the methodology of Dell because I want to go into the suit of the promises that I'm
just bringing example after example, from the Sunnah of the Prophet says Tell him to be the method proper to show us the proper methodology of giving Dawa.
with wisdom, the day is able to know the difference between the different types of people and how to call them to Islam. with wisdom with hikma, the day knows the difference of how to call the different type of people to Islam, how to deal with different types of people. And if you don't have a comma, you don't know how to deal with these people. We were talking yesterday he wants to deal with Christians, or Christians the same type their belief is the same.
all Christians believe the same thing.
What do we have the main groups of Christians now?
bishops and the main the main groups say these three groups, each one has a different belief. So if you come to them now and you say something, say we don't believe this. It's not from our belief. So you need to know what who you're talking to when you talk. Also Muslims, people have different status, they have different any ways to be approached when you give data to them. So you need to know that the hickmott using the hikma sometimes people need [???]. And this is for Hickman, some people need to know what's the I what else Matata? says yeah, you wanna be gentle Kufa. Well, Mona 14, and what was so Pamela and also Martinez, he says, the purpose of cinnamon dinner with him
and the non Muslims to work
and need to be to be to be harsh with them to be severe, these type of people. So some people need a methodology that is harsh. And this is from the Hickman. So in Hickman, all the times it's not being soft, it's not having the lien, but sometimes most of the time, it could be in certain situations, but not all the time. So when you get to him, I want to talk now inshallah, about how to gain hikma before that I have a question. Is wisdom, something natural? Or is it something that we learn? I'll repeat the question. Is hikma something natural? Or something that we learn?
A way one answer.
It's not what? It's not natural. Jimmy, anybody else?
gift from Allah mix. Okay, so we have many different statements. Now somebody says natural, not natural. Somebody said it's a gift from Allah. Somebody said it's a mix. And the correct answer is that it's a mix. Because some people it's like the brother says, a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala. You'll find naturally that he's Hakeem. He's somebody who was wise and is dour. So it's something natural, but the majority of it might be something that's learned. So if you don't have hikma, that doesn't mean you have to give up because I'm sure you can learn it. And this one we're going to talk about now is how to gain
hikma in our demo. The first step in gaining Hickman our tower is making our role model who
Rasulullah sallallahu it was in them and every aspect of our life. If we make the resource, our role model or put one in every aspect of our life, then naturally without even trying, we'll find that we have a comma in our dour and we'll have a comma and our actions and hikma and everything that we do,
who can give me some examples. And this is this I left now, because I want the brothers now in the audience,
to be able to give me some examples of certain things in the life of the process. And they show us hikma and wisdom.
You mean, the brother give the example of the 100. So even before this, you know, that they different and he he was he was one who had the solution that each one would pick up the hazard with with the cloth, and each one put their hand into all the LD together. So he had to come up even before Islam, another example.
And it shows you him before Islam. And the thing about a person who is a good person even before Islam, the effect that it has on the people, what was he known as it is not to say that before Islam, I saw that I mean, the truth and what the trustworthy. So, so now did this help him after Islam helped him big time because they couldn't call him a liar, even in the beginning of it. When Sophia went to Iraq, when he asked him, the scene, no liar. He said, No, we never know him as a liar. And he said to us to them, so they knew now that his message was truthful. They knew his message was truthful. So now what happens to somebody who became Muslim,
was no liar before or somebody who became a politician started practicing Islam, a Muslim, and he was a bad Muslim before? Can he change this or not?
Or he's known someone who's not truthful, people are not gonna trust him.
It will take time, but it can be done. And this is important that the people now and this is one of the great things in doubt. We talked about what is being an example of being a Buddha, when a person becomes a Muslim, when a person starts to practice Islam, who was a born Muslim, and the people see the difference in your actions, this has a great effect and giving down you know, if you don't say a word, just the the changes you have in your life, it affects the people. And I remember that people asked me how I said it, maybe here before, how did you offend me? When you accept this? And how would your family, I said they were very happy when I became Muslim. Now because of Islam, but
because of how I was before Islam, and how I became after I became Muslim, they saw the difference. And I remember the other day, a sister sent me a question. And she's, you know, she starts to practice she's practicing now. So she sends questions from time and time again, because she's having problems with her family. She's in Canada. So she said to me, what should I do about my parents because I had a thing before, where I always used to raise my voice and I would yell at them. And now that I've got to practice my Deen, I don't want to raise my voice to my parents. But sometimes I lose control. So I say so panelist, and now this is a great opportunity for you to show them because
she said they don't want to let me practice. They're getting on me about practicing. They don't want me to practice. So I said now when they see the difference about how you were before you were practicing, and they see how you act now that you won't raise your voice and you won't talk badly to them, then this one, this will help them in Shall I encourage you to practice in jello Tada. So now when we practice our Deen, this has the effect. Even if somebody had a bad past, the changes will have effect on being able to do an example. Who else can give some other examples about the hikma from the prophets I send them
search for the area. Jimmy
Hickman is no can show us a comma and the soul davia
this is one of them. We could probably find a whole bunch. And even if we could give a talk now about super dB, I just know from from the information that comes to us. But now the brother mentioned a good point. They told them to write what from Muhammad
Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. So what did the guy say?
We accept the resume I wouldn't be a thing for a soul because we would have followed you. So he turned to a race it also Bismillah R Rahman Rahim. They told him we don't know what is the Rahman so we want him to erase it. What did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say?
He agreed to erase it. Who was writing? Earlier we talked about the law and what did he do? He said I can't do it. I can't erase it. So sometimes he wears it he erased it himself. Why did he erase it was the echo because he knew that what was coming in shot was bigger and better for the Muslims even though it looked like something that was bad. From his wisdom. Allison had to sell him he had the bigger picture of dour and he knew that was going to come from this sort of from this agreement with them. It was going to be inshallah better and strengthen Islam and Muslims in the future inshallah Tada. Anything else from the soul. It shows you the hikma
Okay, we're gonna use that for an example later on when it comes to patients that this also, it could be an example I'm using this lever for that patient and yet we'll talk about silver
does excellent example when the man urinated in the machine. Imagine this. Some guy comes in now to our machine in the corner and relieves himself in the corner next to our brother sitting over in the corner now Mashallah. What we're most of us do?
Yeah, we kill him, brother. I think he would die. And because this is this is our mentality. Somebody comes in urinates in our budget. And don't think it's just us. Because in the Heidi Sahaba movie, they what they wanted to the person who stopped them immediately didn't think twice. They got up to beat this guy to beat him down. So they're gonna do but the process him down. He left him until he finished because he knew the ill effects you could have this person could not maybe he was coming to ask about Islam, maybe he would if he was a new Muslim, he will leave Islam. Also the the health effects he would have if he were what. And also if you were to run away, the urine would go
through what the rest of the measure all of this hikma from the process. All of these are examples. And as soon as Phil filled with examples of pigment in the dour, so the day if he's going to be successful is now he must have wisdom.
And one of them we said the main way to gain it is to make our code. Our prime example our role model in every aspect of our life. Our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
who can you give us some other examples? Can you add one more thing? One more?
that's also an example. You mean that he had this habit in the mosque? And this came up in the in the lesson the other day? They said some people, they're very harsh with some of the brothers who bring non Muslims to the masjid. They said, How can you make Rick a non Muslim and let him introduce to the mosque? So this is a panel as the brother mentioned, that had the that the posters and he did this, he taught him and the Muslims are non Muslim. And then the What did the man say to him?
The man said to him, that and he was a person he showed him who he was because he was a leader of the tribe he was coming from. He showed him the importance of who he was. He said if you want money if you want this, then he would give it to him. So the process is just what he wanted him to see other muscles weren't kept repeating, what do you want with it? Then he at the end, he said, Let him go. When he let him go, and he could have had all this. He was hikma look at the effect that it had that the person became Muslim and then went in court his tribe into Islam as well as that. So solo it was
the next issue is
that helps us inshallah, in our dalla is the is the karma.
is being upright is the karma being multisim being upright and our Deen Hani and we talked before about the IML implementation. This is something that is something any more in depth is that we have this the karma being upright, and every aspect of our religion.
And we look at this the karma
and the religion in the park, and they had these problems I sent them with this hobby said to him, tell me in something Islam, then I won't ask about anything. And then he wants to one one thing and it's the best thing you can tell me about to do in Islam. So what did he What did he say to Manny salatu salam for Allah to be led to Mr. Pym? Say I believe in Allah and then be upright, Nam
Say it comes from Alaska, Montana, as the brother mentioned, it's a gift for most mothers.
So it's their karma. It has a major effect on our power. And if you look in the verse and sort of the forces that we mentioned before, about the person who is the best person
possible, who do you say what the best person was?
I'm saying the people in
ministry know Colin Mandela, and who is better and speech then who calls to Allah subhanaw taala. Those who the best person we mentioned before, in general, is what you said the prophets are saying that I'm saying the person who commands people will follow in his footsteps. The best of them, is the person who calls to Allah subhanaw taala and the verse What does he say after that? Allah subhana
wa Tada. And there's good deeds. So the implementation is the common not just he's a person who caused the doubt is a person who implements in his life. And what does the lawsuit Final Fantasy before the reverse and sort of full Senate
in pro bono law, Mr. Como, the tennis,
a lot of popular gender, religion generate
the agenda at LSU quantum, to aduna. In this verse, Allah subhanaw taala makes it clear the importance of is the outcome of being upright. That
The gift, the blessings you will get from it, that you will be surrounded by the melodica by the angels, and that you will not be scared, and you will not have fear. And then he gives glad tidings to them with agenda with the good deeds we used to do. All of this shows us the importance of karma. What I want to talk about now is the ill effects of not having this is the karma being upright that no Muslims live that it has on the non Muslims.
And I mentioned this in several of my talks before, that we are the people who represent Islam. Now, the non Muslims don't look at you know, who's this and they understand that Muslim has been one. And that's why my father, when he talks to me, sometimes he told me
when I was going, he's going to go back to America a few years ago, and I was I was going to the airport, I called him and I said, you know, make sure I need to make it clear that when I come to the house, no women try to shake my hand.
And he said, What is this? What are you talking about? I said, because it's Haram in Islam to shake hands. So I don't want it to be in so make this clear to everybody, please. He said, But all of your princes and rulers where you live, they all shake hands of the women. So when conflicts arise comes they'll shake your hand.
Not follow Islam in this aspect of the deen. I said are prophesized. And I'm said, then he doesn't shake the hands of women. And it's better to be hit in the head with this metal object than what shaking the head or touching a woman was not helpful for you. So I said, We don't shake hands. So this now you see this, this misconception that it gives the non Muslim and he sees a Muslim who doesn't follow his religion. And he the the effect that it has on the person not practicing religion. Another example. I met a brother one time when I was in Riyadh, in Saudi Arabia. He was a police officer of bobbitt who went for a course in America. And from the people were there other any
Arab nationalities, also taking the same course. So he said when he went to one of the things they had to do in this course, was they have to go for a blood drive, the blood drive I was with with the Red Cross. So when he came into the room, he mentioned that
the woman gave him a T shirt to wear as a volunteer. And this brilliant Mahesh, he prays everything he does when he's not in a really, really serious about his religion, but he's okay. So anyways, he said, but I want to put this, you know, he said, he said, he said this himself, he said, I'm not really that good in my practice. But when I put his t shirt on, I see this big red cross on my chest. I said, so paralyzed, and I'm a Muslim. He said, I know I can't do this. So he told the lady said, you know, I'm very sorry, but I'm a Muslim. I can't do this. And she was like, Oh, Mr. Mohammed, I'm very, very sorry. And
he said, he said to them, he said, this, and he just whether she says, okay, just wear your regular shirt is no problem. What I want to show now is that the other person came from another Arab nationality. And I say another Arab nationality. Because when I gave the talk before in Canada, and I mentioned this story, not the same talk, but and I gave this story before that.
I mentioned, I didn't mention the nationality.
And after the talk, the people in this nationality were very, very upset. And I didn't say anything about them. I just said this guy was from this country. They said, How can you talk about us like this? I said, I didn't say anything. All I said was the guy was you from your country. I didn't say anything bad about the people from your country. So they were very offended, and went back to Sudan.
from Canada, the brothers in Sudan said, you have to be careful because this nationality of people, they're very sensitive. So as a Dahlia, and I don't agree with it, because I didn't say anything negative about them. And I still to this day, don't agree. But the fact is, since they are sensitive people, and they were offended by this as a DI nl, I learned something. And now implemented here in Charlotte tonight that I won't mention the nationality because the people got offended. And this what you need to learn this is achema when it comes now, this is implementation. I didn't know this before, I was telling a story. And I mentioned his national, no big deal. I didn't say anything
about about his people about his country about this. It was just a person from his country. So they were very offended. So anyways, this is how you learn inshallah, from Hickman shell as well, is that when you learn something that offends people, obviously you don't return and you do it again, even if you don't think it was something offensive. So now, this other error police officer comes in to then he said, you know, how was it? He told him this? And this happened? She gave me my course. He was like, What? It's no big deal. He should you should just put it on. Because now the thing is, there's differences between them else, and it's gonna cause us problems. So just put on the cross,
no big deal. So when he comes into the room, she says to him, also his name was Mohammed. He says, Mr. Mohammed, I know you're not going to work. He said, No, it's no problem. Give it to me. I'll put it on. So think what's going through this poor lady's mind now about the Muslims? She is the first guy says no, I can't do it because I'm Muslim. And the second guy is saying, Hey, no big deal. Give it to me. I'll put it on. This is the problem. Another thing happened. One of our brothers, who used to be when he became one
him, he was a doctor in the US Army. Now he left and he's working as an AI doctor in Saudi Arabia. He was telling us a story that happened also about the thing about shaking hands, that and a female officer, she came to a soldier happened to be Muslim. And she put her hand out to shake his hand. And she's an officer. And he is just a regular soldier. So he said, I can't shake hands.
And she was very offended, how can I shake my hands. So our brother, the doctor, the doctor, he was in charge of the Muslim affairs on the base during that time, he just became Muslim, and he was in charge of their affairs. So they called him to intervene, because it caused a big problem because he was disrespecting an officer. And you get big trouble in your army for this. So when they came to, and they talked about it, he showed her the idea of the process in the process m says this is, so she was really concerned about this in your face changed. She said, I understand this I respect and since it's the state, the saying of your profit. So listen, I'm not going to say anything, I'm going
to drop the charges against the officer. But what I can't understand is all of the officers who come from all of the Arab countries, all of them, shake my hands, all them shake my hand.
So this is the problem now. And we're giving the bad names inception. And so Pinilla when you implemented this sooner, it no longer becomes a problem. Now remember, when we first went to Sudan in 94, it wasn't that much of a problem, because the brothers will practice as soon as it became well known to the women, that a person who looks like me, doesn't shake hands. So very rarely will you find a woman now who will come to somebody like me with a beard like this and be like, you know, how's it going, it doesn't happen, because they know somebody looks at me doesn't shake hands. But then when we start making these things, we start to see we're gonna use Hickman.
If you still do, it causes problems. And this one, as soon as the spread, the people will understand this, and maybe some people say the shaking hands is not a big deal. So it might look like a small thing. But it can be a big thing and have a very negative effect on the dour.
So what's the best thing you do now? Why don't you take a non Muslim woman comes to you? And she says, How you doing? How do you deal with it? What do you say?
That's exactly what I say. This is the exact wording I use. I say sorry, I'm not allowed to shake hands.
What does this do? She's gonna be curious. Why? Because what I say I'm not allowed.
I said, I'm not allowed. So she's gonna ask, she's gonna become curious isn't open to doing that for a while you're not allowed? What's the answer? What do you say? Because my wife will beat me up by touching other woman's and
so you say to her, Well, you're not allowed.
Muslim because we're not allowed this now This opens the door that shouldn't be curious what kind of religion is this and won't let a man touch another woman who was not held on for him. So it's interesting. So now that maybe this opened the door for doubt. And as some of the scholars said, if it opened the door, they said if you put your foot in this when you go you continue to want to talk about Islam. This is definitely not.
Okay, so I will say that I'm not allowed to
say exactly. And then we say we're not allowed. He said don't say sorry, because we're not sorry, because I'm the lead. This is the center of the process. I'm Second. Okay.
Another thing we'll talk about, what is the pseudonym how it protects us in our religion?
This I'm going to try to explain it but it doesn't sound in English as it sounds in Arabic. But I've benefited from Shia Mohammed, her senior who was talking about the layer the beard for the man. And he said nasty the people they say and or Bella here and the therapy of the lady I mean he grows it out he takes care of it and what have you, but he said actually the left here sort of big into that the beard is what any educates you and takes care of you. And what is the example of this when you have a beard like this? You can't do something that's haram
and I told my students when we study this hadith in the school about for me to be lying to Mr. Team, to say I believe in Allah and then be upright. I mentioned this an example now when I teach when I try when I go this I where I will have my beard I had my throat when I go even when I was going to Canada. I wish I went to the brothers How can you travel like that? So when I have nothing to hide, this is where I'm if they're gonna let me travel or not me trouble is that so they said, but this is maybe this is where they stopped you when you came in. I said, Okay, they're waiting for me at the door of the plane. So I said even if I had a skirt on, they're going to stop me. You know, they're
waiting for me. So what I have on it's no big deal. It's what Muslims have to understand. It's all about being proud of being a Muslim.
So it's who we are. This is I don't wear like this, rarely do I wear pants. I don't want I don't want this. I feel comfortable in this. This is what I wear. So this is when I go I travel like this as well. So now when you travel and stuff Hello when you travel like this. I remember one brother from France. He told me
That the security, they stopped him in the airport. They say people like you, they're not scared of you because it's clear, obviously, you're not up to something. You have this big white one a big beard. Obviously, you're not somebody who's gonna try to do something. But the guy who shave and somebody This is this guy's concerns this he told he told the guy this. This guy was my neighbor, he came back and told me after the summer vacation. So now, when I'll tell you another story about two brothers from Queens. One It was a big shift machine, a big area. And the other one, he worked in Dell, but he was in an administrative position. So they went to open msgid in Florida, and they were
asking me to the amount of that machine. But I decided I didn't want to move back to America at that time. So when they went to open the masjid, the brother who was the sheriff, how did he go? He's the only thing I changed that took off the portra he said I told my my head on and I had my thought or the discussions they call them Kuwait. And he said I went to the airport. So he said I came to the he said they looked at his beard much as much bigger than my by the way so much to hear. He says look the passport stamped a password, but it didn't say a word to him. The other guy comes my show a nice suit tie. And this is Excuse me, sir, can you come with us to the side?
So they held it for like three or four hours. So the question is, you know, the guy was clear, because it was good. This guy was up to me. It was not coming to do something fishy, you know? So this is what you see when as soon as one protects you what Sheikh Mohammed was saying was saying when the beard protects you and I told my students, you can't do something that's not on and protection protects your deen. Now can a person who has a big beard like this go and buy a pack of cigarettes?
And somebody with a big beard now shift Mashallah. Mashallah. His beard? Can you go buy a pack of cigarettes, he can't do it. He was supposed to come to one of us. We can't do it. Because you gotta go to the store and the guy even though he's selling hot, um, and he's selling cigarettes, and he's like, shame on you buy cigarettes, you can't buy your [???].
You can't buy cigarettes. So he protects you. So vanilla. Also the woman who has a buyer who's covered completely can she go do something that's wrong, she can't do people are not gonna look at it. She's not gonna she's not gonna she's gonna be out of place a person now with a woman a beard or a woman who's in our back and they go to a nightclub.
You can't do it, and the people are not gonna even any let you do it. So now, this is the thing is that this is the this should now when you practice this when you present it actually is protecting you. So this is important. We talk about practice and sunova hit on now, which is good that we must practice it because it helps us and protecting us and our religion. The fifth thing that we need in our download to be successful is effortless sincerity.
We mentioned infallible and whenever in doubt.
The question might be asked now Why are you mentioning the class? And number five? Instead of mentioning number one, I bokhara mentioned at the beginning of the session. In the mme Albania he mentioned the Hadith. They're very actions are judged by intentions. So why are we mentioning a lesson number five instead of number one? I'm doing this on purpose.
It comes after you know how to do down Okay, maybe what else?
It could change him does this important because when we started the Dow we could have a close. But now you notice you have
l now you have knowledge you acting upon your l you become a famous guy and now you've given 4766 you had us and a half.
Mashallah. And when he's almost there, not yet, but he's almost there. So you kind of do. So now Mashallah you become famous, maybe you're on TV, you're on the internet, Mashallah, you became it's a fitness for the day. And this is something I know now. And that's something I've experienced that now becomes a major fitness, and becomes a major fitness. So we have to remind ourselves after we get to this level, we want to get to this is why I mentioned this lesson number five. I mentioned to the brother, I was joking with the brother today, when we were citing the things for the certificates and challenge you'll get, by the way, which I forgot to say at the beginning is
supposed to we'll say announced at the end. And we passed that on Saturday and shall after Saturday's lecture, we pass out the certificates to the brothers who attended all three days of the course inshallah Tada.
As I was signing it, I said, You know, I was joking with him. I said, you can take this by the way, my autograph and you can sell it on eBay and get some money for it. And I told him I'm joking, obviously about this. But when I say when we went to India, the culture there was different from what we know, as somebody who has been a student of knowledge and growing up in the Arab world to especially in the Gulf area, what have you.
We went there, the five star treatment, the pros are very nice. But you know, this five star treatment, you know, you roll up in the car, and they do this human chain and they block everybody off from you. Everybody wants to give you some thumbs. Oh, she actually I was like, well, this is weird. I've never seen this before, you know. And then, you know, we go to select the drama. Then we go to the VIP room. We come out of the VIP room. And everybody's standing there she actually Can I get your autograph. I see what my autograph. So I looked over another brother from America. I said this guy's serious. He said this
their culture. He said, this is something we respect. He said, Well, ladies in America, I won't do it. They said, but the brothers, this is their culture. He said it's no problem. I see no problem. I said, For me, it's different listening, but it becomes it becomes a fitna for the day. Now if he would initiate people in a villa and they want to autograph they want to somebody if somebody wants autographs, I'm okay. No. So Pamela, the fact was that this was something different for us. It could become a fitna for somebody.
Any all the things you can mention about the doubt the thing about now when you travel when people travel with you know this, this first class treatment that you get and this and people raising you unestablished that you don't even deserve Somali becomes a fitna for you. I mentioned yesterday the bros who work in dalla and they get all these marriage proposals, it becomes a fitna and becomes a fitness a big fitna. So this is why I mentioned the issue of a philos known so once you learn, you have the proper methodology and you start upon the path you always need to remind yourself about the class who did you start for issue have a close look at the look at the dads who are successful in
their in their in their dour? While you can see they're close to heaven, they're down. We mentioned time and time again, shift usage. So this may Allah protect him and make his life long and shallow and giving good benefit to the Muslims in shallow into the soma. And you can see the shift. What What does he have from the dunya? Nothing really basic guy. Nothing from the dunya. It doesn't mean he doesn't care either. You can see how he acts how he dresses he doesn't care about the dunya. But you probably you can see the effect of the lesson is down in the buttock and his tower. How many people have come to Islam through his tower? Maybe she maybe I don't know the last thing I heard a
few years ago, maybe any how many 13,000 or something like this, some of the other people who are on the ship, they tell us you know. So now you see the class the effect of the floss, how many websites this year have hundreds of websites. So you see the shift is night and day 90 days working. And you can see the effect of the floss. And you see the Baraka the blessings that Lhasa Matata puts into the dour. Well like any you see how they strive night and day little sleep and know this and they're just working for the Dallas and their claws in Shell you will get inshallah tada the blessings in your dour and shallow to Allah. The sixth thing is experience.
The feabhra the experience, it's something that will help you in selling your dowel. How many problems that we face now when I came now they'll tell you Mashallah, you have a brother who's new in Islam, you have a sister who's new in Islam, they say they're a little harsh, a little severe. Why? Because they're new in Islam. So when they told me I always left because when I was in a Muslim, I was the same way. You know, you really, really should eat really harsh you want, you know, the Sunni this way in that way. But the thing is, you don't really understand what is in either that What is this, the scholar say about this, maybe there's a difference of opinion. And then it's fine.
When you learn more, you start to learn like wow, I was really stupid when I was when I was doing the dean, because you didn't have knowledge you had ms was Ms in English.
You were driven by emotion, you're excited, you're pumped up, and you really pumped up but you don't have the you don't have the time to have that knowledge. So through experience, you'll find that inshallah you will have you'll be successful in your dour and anyone who make mistakes, all of us gonna make mistakes, none of us are perfect. Nobody's perfect. All I was going to be mistakes. What's important is that we keep striving on the path for down, and that we gain experience. And one of the things I recommend, and this is something that has benefited me so greatly, even before Islam is that you try to hang out and be friends, the people who are older than you and people have more
experience. And now the majority of my friends and even from even before Islam, they were older than me, you know the older generation. So now when my younger friends were with me, they would get in trouble, I wouldn't get in trouble. Why because the people are out. And when I was 1615, I was hanging out people who were 2526 and their 30s, they had been down the same path I was going through. So they would tell me don't do the same thing don't fall into the same mistake. So I would stay away from the door, all my friends in trouble attend, I would get in trouble as much as them because of the fact that I was hanging around older people. Also in the Diem, Allah subhanaw taala
bless me from the beginning. And I was in my early 20s, when I started to study from 19 when I started a study and seeking knowledge that I would always hang out and be friends with the scholars themselves. Then Allah blessed me with that, from the strong streams of knowledge. So he's always spend time with him. And they're much older than me. And just the other day I was when I was in Sudan for I came here on Friday, one of the scholars there, he invited me to lunch. So I looked around the room. And all these are old day, Michelle No, you know, maybe some of their 40s in their 50s 60s from the scholars incident. And I was only really young guy there from the students of
knowledge. So you see now when you're in these type of settings, the benefits you get from the doubt that you gain from these people. And that's what we always say to the brothers within the West. When you go back to the west and you're giving Dell or any country you go back to always benefit from the pioneers, the people who were there giving data before you because even though you might have more knowledge than them, you might have more knowledge than them and they are the ones who lay down
In the past, and they were the ones who've been working for 3040 years, so we need to benefit them and then build on what they are building upon. And this is a key point as well. My brothers and sisters in Islam that we benefit from what the other brothers have done in dalla unfortunate A lot of us now we come and down and we want to start from scratch all the time. And that's when we find as we said the beginning we're going slowly but surely, but it's really very slow.
So now we want to build a demo project started something we need to start on something that somebody has already done.
So now, when I was asked to do a dowel technique course I mentioned before it was done in Qatar Mashallah and short VLAN is somebody when I tell them and he he's Mashallah he doesn't look that old machines me but he was he was studying Islamic University of Medina when I was born.
He graduated when I was four years old.
So So if Allah so the guy has experienced much like 50 books and giving down as Mashallah tomato cola. So I said, Now, if I give a delicate nice course, I'm going to take obviously start from when he what he has given, and then maybe benefit from other things, but I'm not going to come with anything new. I'm not going to waste my time and waste them with some time and show you that I'm a super shift, I'm going to benefit from the pioneers who have laid down the path before us. And this is what we need to do. You need to benefit from your elders and benefit from the brothers who have been giving Dawa for many years before you and benefit from the experience. And also this is one of
the greatest ways to gain Hickman go back to the hikma to the third point, about hikma, you can gain it from the people who are who are older in age. And you always see someone like you when you sit with the brothers who even if they don't have a lot of knowledge, and Islam, but they're older they have experience in life. So you benefit from that as well.
thing is that you mentioned Okay, we can say benefiting from the elders and experience and the experience, we can make that six and seven and two, and that will say the eight thing now. So I'll repeat it. So the first one to write it down number six and experience number seven is benefiting from our elders and those who have experienced. So we want to mention these two things, because we want to highlight the point of benefiting from the elders in Islam.
The eighth point is the issue of patience of a suburb. And I was down the road this morning as we're standing as soon as I said how many times during the lectures that night have we mentioned or pseudo data, which starts with the the knowledge and then an admin acting upon the knowledge and then the data and then the third thing is what the sober the patient's the fourth excuse me as to as to what the sub the patient's because when you
call to them in hajj, Allah Allah Allah Allah the methodology of La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, you call to the religion of Allah, and to the region of his of his prophets, I seldom you're going to be tested, it's not going to come easy, as you mentioned before, and how do you feel what have they been? nofal? Who was who, who's what have?
We mentioned this in the first thing before, I told the brothers one as it because you know, have lessons in the morning lessons at night, we have meetings with the brothers in the night and the date. So all we're talking about is dow element this. So sometimes I think I've said something here, and I said it there anyways, and said, well, Cory, what have I been known for? Who was he, the uncle of Khadija or the Lavanya. When he came to the province, I sell them. She took him, she took him to her uncle, and told him what the person has saw in our hora. And he said to him at the end of the Hadeeth, I wish I was with you, when your people force you out.
And he asked him, and what a surprise because you look now the purpose, I said, Who is he? He is from which tribe?
For Benny Hashem, he's somebody important. He's not somebody who's miskeen, who they know you kick out, you know, who's knee high, is somebody who's important in the country. So it is such a surprise for anybody here, this, my people will force me out of my own country, is the first thing you heard. And he said to him, nobody has came with what you have came with except for what he has been harmed. So if you come with this method, you have to realize that you're going to be harmed, you're not going, it's not going to be easy. The brothers now they complain about what we face. When we go back to the west, and we travel.
And I tell them, it's just part of the job. I said, you signed up for the job that you have to deal with it is what you have to the price you have to pay. When you go in now all the prophets were tested. This is a test for you. When you go back, they're going to stop you. They're going to ask you q&a, q&a, it's a routine something normal, one of the brothers now he said, Michelle, I said, I've got so used to it, that I just go to sleep, I rest and shallow and then when they're finished, when he went and interrogate me, they wake me up, they finish. And he said, I told him, I said you can stop each time he said, I'm never going to stop giving that one. I'm gonna continue to get down.
And I want to point out something as well. A lot of brothers, when you when you are in this situation, all of a sudden go through it. If you're gonna work in the field of dalla, especially if we're gonna go to the west, you're gonna have to go through this. This is probably the price you're gonna pay for working in Dallas. When it happens. The first thing you need to realize is that the majority of these people, they're doing their job.
I'm not saying I agree with their job. I believe that the way they're doing things, they're making things worse than making things better.
However, they're ordered to do this, especially when you come off the plane, and you find them waiting for you. It's not he's not singling you out. And he's sitting there waiting for you. So I have two older brothers when I went to Canada. I see the check the check point for the passports and check those passports. So I'm looking is somebody waiting for me? I'm expecting maybe it's possible. So I see this guy's eyes light up. I say okay, this is for me. So he comes over to me. Hello, very nice guy. How you doing? I see. I'm damn good. You know, what are you here for us? And I'm here for a conference. What kind of conference Islamic conference Islamic Center. This is? Where's your
invitation? Where's your hotel? Where's your ticket? I have it. I'm done. I'm ready. Give it to him. He said, Okay. You can pick it up on the other side immigration. He picks his telephone, got him
a job. So I go outside, I sit with them for about six hours.
What am I supposed to do? They're asking questions. And they have a file. And then they know about me. I know. They know about me. It's right in front of them. And they asked me a question. Okay, what about this? They want to see if you're being truthful or not truthful? I tell them. What do you do? How do you look at Islam, how's your opinion of this, I said, This is my opinion. If you're gonna send me home, I'm gonna do this and do what you got to do. I'm gonna do what I say here. And for now, in front of the in front of the camera on the microphone, live on the web. It's what I say to them. It's what I say when I sit with the brothers. Same thing. This is my methodology. In life.
I said, I'm not scared of anything, because this is what I believe in is. And this is what I believe in hamdulillah. She went outside the lady they bought from the Secret Service and the immigration office they're sitting when they go outside, they told the manager of Islamic Center. They said, Well, we were really impressed with how truthful he was, we're gonna let him in the country because he was truthful because they know they have in front of him. What do you say about this? Let's read the answers right there. So they're gonna see if you say the same thing that they already have information. I was truthful and they respected This is what I always tell the pros in the field of
dalla if you want to, you know, be under the cover Muslim, even if they don't agree with you will lie they will respect you for being any for standing up for what you believe in. They will respect you a light is what you have to realize. But somebody who doesn't respect himself and doesn't respect his religion, other people are not going to respect him. So panela
and I'll point out once again that we realize and when you deal with these type you just be nice, they're doing their job what can you do, they're going to stop you There's nothing you can do about it and something and now in the day we live in is a price we have to pay for giving down we deal with it and I also will give advice since they probably listen to us now anyways as it is to them because what they're doing is actually harming themselves and harming their countries by this this type of thing when they when you treat people in this in this bad fashion and then they can can they can eat as much and they were very nice they were very nice now they treated me that this is causing
them more harm and when they need to realize this that if they want to know Muslims any there's this extremist Islam Islam Where's extremists you'll never find this in history of Islam, Muslims anywhere they get to worship Allah Tada, it'd be who do Muslims, they know this. They're very nice people. So this thing and then when they caught when they cause these problems to Muslims, they want to ban the niqab. They want to do this, that they need to realize that the harm actually that they're causing. And I'll point out that you know, the brothers complain about the treatment they have.
I personally have not found that when dealing for example with our embassy, I go like this, who I am, they know who I am. I mean, I know this, I go and they're very they're very nice to me, I say inshallah inshallah. Next time will be different, but they're very nice thing when I go and you have to be when you when you're somebody who stand up for what you believe in you, you're clear about who you are, people will respect this what you have to realize, so we're giving down with methodology tomorrow holding firm to the sooner and having your thumb up. This inshallah will help you in shallow in your delve in the lives of
the patient's want to look into the sooner the process elements and see how he was at a certain time when it came to being patient. His dour.
Look, what did they call him?
When he started to go sign? Majnoon? What else?
guy in it. He's a magician that he was crazy. Kathy, they called him a liar. And he was known before Islam is what I mean, he knows this. How do you think this in you? Do you think this and he felt good to him to be called this by his people? Obviously not.
He's human to Elisa to Salah. These type of things. It hurts for old people to say this to you, as you were called the father Colombian before Islam. How is the patient with him? Given down to them? How was he in dealing with him? That's why I said to him, Allah homophilic home even home, he has his mother forgive them his belly, they don't know. So this we said, our code we're exempt has to be the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We say now to our Pete for people who who harm us as Muslims, when we travel to our countries, and they follow us and they spy on us we say
if they knew that, then the blessing that we were in Islam, and what we found from that from the head, our the man, the sweetness of the man shall they will come to this man as well. So any we want them to also say nobody wants to care about the president. He said, You said the hum of Tao. He's always concerned about giving these people how to get down to them. Look what happened in five and they start to send them what
do five do to him?
They put him through stones at him. And through what happened until the blood came down from his body is LSR to slam his standards were filled with blood and he's about to send him. Allah subhanaw taala sent to him, the angel of the mountains. And what do you say to him the angel? If you want me to what?
The question between the mountains I will do it.
I want you now to put yourself in this position. somebody threw stones at you. You're bleeding over your entire body.
What would you do?
Honestly, Bismillah to Allah. Don't even think twice about it. Take them all out. This How will we do? Look at the prophecy Selim. What did he say
to him, man, yeah, Buddha, Lola, you should be Shia. Perhaps somebody will come from them, worship Allah and doesn't join any partners with him. So Padma look at the patients look at the Hickman, look at the Rama Rama del alameen mercy to mankind and Acela to asylum.
Another story when a tofail from the DOS tribe when he came to him, and he went, he became Muslim, and he went back to his people. And he called him to Islam, all of them refuse to accept Islam and they were very nasty to him. And he called him to Islam, say back to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and told them was from his tribe a dose. So he said, you know, make dua upon them.
And we're very good at this. You can do up on people. You see somebody who was, who was it was fast it was going away from Islam, to land a non Muslim.
laugher lockers pimps are the prophesies that mc
alojamento deals with EDM, Aloma guide DOS and bring them to me. And that was answered by Allah subhanaw taala and the whole tribe became Muslims.
This is the example we need in our dour. When he was with one of the brothers, we go back again to the elders. When I came, I was I was at the brother
and he was an older guy. Knowledge wise. I've learned more about Islam than I know this. But he was very good practicing Muslim. He was focusing on issue of making to our people every time we see somebody in the street, may Allah guide them they lie they lie to you, lady lady, may Allah guide them so Pamela, this affected me in a big way. I said I you know, I should be saying the same thing. Okay, so Pamela, so you benefit from the elders meeting. And this is the student how we benefit from the sooner the prophets I send them and making dua and wanting to stay and what everybody will learn, even even now as any Muslim. Now, we all know it's no secret how the Muslims feel about
what's happening in Palestine, what's happening to our brothers in Palestine, and in Israel is with somebody be upset if Israeli Israeli person became Muslim?
I have the law now I read the other day and of course, and I put it on the on the Facebook on the page that the brothers they opened up a data center and
for the people who became Muslim or for from Israel,
five from England, to from America, from Russia, from France, Mashallah. from Scotland, they all became Muslim. So it shouldn't we want to pay for everybody. What they want is good, right? There's other problems I sent him was the first thing he would he would Didn't he as a best said he would have the hum he was so concerned about about giving our Elisa to Scylla.
As the brother mentioned before another story, the man who stood over the prophets, that aloha leaves him with the sword.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam not only was he the Prophet, and he said to him, what else was what else was his job in Medina?
Nothing just dour. Down. lentiginous.
husband does what a ruler he is the ruler of the country of the Islamic State. What else?
The commander in chief
of the army, the judge of the courts, he was everything.
He did everything he was the man with the most everything, everything he was doing, at least last time, he was the head of everything. Now imagine this, the one who is the head of everything. somebody standing over the sword puts the sword to him. As he's falling asleep and he stops them he wakes up and finds this man standing over him the sword. The man says to him who will protect you from me?
What do you say less awesome. Hello. Because he knows that he is the man. His mission is not finished yet. Last month I was going to protect him. He said a lot. He says again, who will protect you from me? He said a lot. After this the man couldn't even hold a sword he left he went back what are the processes due to him?
So now what would you do? Ask yourself
turn off the microphone. This is
what we do to
subpanel imagine and look at ourselves look at the process and this will we want to follow. He let him go into it. How does it affect him and affect them to become Muslim and to follow Islam. Also, when you look at the process, tell them the victory of Mecca
the conquering of Mecca or
When the procession went into Mecca, and I want you to imagine this, imagine the biggest enemy of Islam.
And you are in the Muslim army. You're the commander of the Muslim army, and you have conquered the country of the biggest enemy of Islam. It has killed your brothers. They have killed some of the most beloved people to Hamza and other people, your cousins, they've killed your close relatives, your Sahaba they fought you time and time again. They've come and tried to invade, invade Medina. Well, at the end, they've done all this. You're the commander of this army.
What are you going to do when you go in?
Look at the properties and where's the Heckman tower and look what he did and look what happened to Mecca and look what happen to the P was the process MC when he came in? First of all, how did he come in?
How is the description of the as the profit it so somebody came in on his on his cabin?
Where I was his head, I was just had to scramble can see it was done? It was done? Because he was humble. How would your head be
victorious now coming in?
The person who was there was humble, because he was he was from who was Montana, Montana. And then what did he say to the people?
And Abu sufian house Why? Because that was Sylveon. He was he was the main man during that time. So he wanted now he's using Hickman and our Elisa to sue them. Once again, we're going back to the Ekman because he knows now Sophia is an important person. So whoever enters the house, oh, Sophia, he's and he's safe. He's using the heck am I now because I was Sophia. And how's this gonna affect him? Now you I was again, he's been a big enemy of Islam before that. And now he's given him the status that he feels he deserves. I was an approximation professors and he's using Hickman dalla. So now this is gonna affect that with soufiane. It's gonna affect other people. What else did he say,
Whoever doesn't have a weapon, wherever it goes to the Kaaba, whoever closed his door upon himself. He's admin. How does it affect the people flourish? What happened?
What happened to them? They accepted Islam. So panela the process enemies that somebody who's come with the throne wants to kill people. He wants people to save people from the hellfire. So the intergender
so now when he comes in, this is his goal. He doesn't want to come to school blood, he wants to be able to come to Islam. So he used the Hickman Tao and Islam to Salah Alhamdulillah. They all became Muslim. Well, Hamdulillah, horrible. alameen
Hickman della is not easy. It's not easy thing to do.
Not looking for revenge for yourself. It's not an easy thing to do. I mean, I said was one of the scholars before. And somebody had written a book about him. It was full of lies, slandering him and calling him this and that. So when we sat with the chef, we asked him, Have you seen the book? He said, I heard of it. We said, well, later today, I haven't seen it.
I said, Imagine if somebody writes an article about you on the internet. He's this and he's lying about you. You want to get out? You want to refute him and this and you upset. He said, Well, I haven't seen the book. He said, I'm busy getting down, trying to help us not have time to read this stuff. He said, May Allah forgive the brother who said this about me? It's not an easy thing. The other day, when I was I came in on this Facebook, you know, sometimes I've been using it for demo, even though now I don't you know, some of the stuff on it. It's not It's not that good. But anyways, it is it is an opportunity to get down into network between Muslims and hamdulillah. So a sister
came asked me a question in Arabic, about if I can interpret dreams. So I said, No, I can't. So I've answered the question. But she continues to tell me about the dream she had. She said she had a dream of the of the province I sell them. And at this time, she wasn't praying.
And she was very far from Islam. So what does this mean? As far as I know, I told you, I didn't interpret a dream. That's it. Maybe this is a sign for you to come back to Islam in a minute, because I don't interpret idioms. And then I left it at that. And I turned off the page. So I come on a few days later, and she says, Thank you, boy, and you
know, she was very upset. She gave me some very, very harsh statements. How can you close the page on me? What are you talking about? I forgot what even happened? Cuz the questions come all the time. I forgot the question itself. So who is this lady talking like this? I was upset.
So I thought what to write. And I said, I don't know what you're talking about. I don't remember what you're talking about. But I say my law Forgive me, I forgive you. Whatever it is. So then she had this affected or affected in a way where she said, You know, I was wanting to talk about the dream stuff like this. I said, I didn't I thought you were finished. So I said, I'm sorry. I remember the story after that. So I said, I'm sorry. It's not easy thing to do. When you want to what? control yourself controlling your anger, having sober it's not an easy thing to do. A story that happened to me one time when I was in, I believe the second year of the college in Medina, or
in the University of Medina.
I was there was a a we called a flea market. I don't know if it's if you know what we know a flea market is
So where people come from outside and they sell things, he's working from Russia, from shisha, nice place and they were selling, you know, honey and these things on the side of the street. So people had stopped and they wanted to,
you know, I was looking what they were sending. So when I got back into my car was there Ramadan, I started to drive off and I hear this horn. So my honking horn really loud. So I see this guy behind me screaming and yelling, he must have felt I cut him off. I didn't see him when I went out. So I said, you know, sorry, and there's obviously no way to go in front of me. So I said, I'm sorry, I kept going.
The guy comes next to him on the side. He's screaming at me and cursing at me and this during Ramadan.
And I said to him, what are you going to do hit my car? I mean, I was driving 1979 Oh beat up cars. I didn't care of it anyways, you drive a brand new car. So hit my car. He hits the gas and goes into the door.
Patients Ramadan were fascinating. Now am I my friend with me from France and I had my son with me in the back seat. I said okay, be patient. He got on the corner CFE. May Allah forgive you. I said him that's from with our fasting, that lucky. He spit in my face.
And after this, any my first thing, my first reaction, I went under my seat, because they know the reaction of the days before Islam, you might have something in your seat. I didn't have anything. I'm the next I'm live in
the city of the province I sent him. So tell us this, I just I wouldn't blink.
So I sit back in the car. Because I know a lot of these people in this country, the white one what he wants to make a scene, he wants to go the car, he wants to call you a dog and he mowed and all this and people break it up and he looks like a tough guy. Where I'm from, we do things different. So I kept going. And he's following me. And this is the area where I live. So I'm gonna take him on the back streets where nobody's gonna see anything. So I'm taking him to the back Street and I'm thinking what to do. Now after he's not here now. She's been driving the car now let's cuz he's taken over. And I'm just like, oh, man, what to do. So I'm thinking what do I have in the trunk?
There's the the tire irons, okay. But I said by the time open the door, it's an old car, you have to open it, the trunk might open as he might attack me. So what do I do? And I'm thinking I have this brother with me from France. He's a nice guy. But I don't know, people from France. That was an American guy wouldn't have to say anything. And this also is in the sooner the process that he said and better. When he went to fight. He didn't know the answer that well at that time. But he knew that it was time to throw down there ready? Because there were people he'd worked with him. But downside, he kept saying, you know if this happened only fighting. So Mahajan, you say we're ready.
And he kept repeating it because he doesn't want that module. He knows that his people, they're ready. So he says this the answer they understood. They said, it seems like you mean us. He said, we have given you the allegiance to fight. And today and we will see that we are men if it comes down to fight for the law. No. So now this brother, he's from a different country, America, I would have asked him he would I'm looking at receipt as well. So I say to the guy, you know, this house is gonna go down. Because I just had an operation on my tooth the day before. So I was afraid me if I get hit, you know, it could have an effect. I said, only one punch inshallah. And he's going down
after that. And I'm gonna continue. I said, if he does get a smack in Oman or something, I said, I want you to get in the tequila.
He said, you're a student of knowledge.
He said at this, your student ID he said to me, he said, The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in the Hadith in the site, and he said, what if somebody curses at you and says something to say I am fasting and fasting. So panela I remember the story of Omar. I mean, I was in another state. I mean, I was really in another state of this that was really that was so mad. So I said to penalize it, remember the story of Omar at the death of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. When I woke up, came out and said, whoever's worshipping Mohammed, Mohammed could not and he mentioned the ayah, and Omar cigarette, and he says, as the first time I have heard this idea. So when the brother said to
me, I suppose it's like, the first time I've ever heard this idea, even though I know what the idea is, well, that's exactly I can't say no to the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also say no, no, this is put on the side for now. Later inshallah. Last, I heard that, I couldn't say no to that.
So I think the brother and then we ended up on the back Street and the guy start to go far away, like what are these guys up to us? And we're just writing up the license plate. We throw the license plate on to the police, the police arrest him hamdulillah and it worked out. And then he was arrested. He said, What do you want from him? So this is now it's time for revenge. Now, I'm going to get him. I call my shift, associate business situation. So what do you think? He said? He said to forgive his favor inshallah.
I said, fellas, let him go inshallah. And he spent a day in jail because I was last 10 days I went to Mecca. His car was impounded.
The American brothers they said, No, they said, we wouldn't let it slip.
Under the sound of that brother was with me and him that he saved me from doing that was just so pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala della
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen or salat wa salam ala alameen, the Vietnam War. He was a big man. This brings us inshallah to a conclusion of this series. And once again, as I told the brother No, I said, I'm done.
Today I'm going to finish quickly, so I can open the floor for questions.
Once again, I talked to the end, unfortunately, but inshallah I hope to continue inshallah, perhaps this year we'll do another course. And I want to do a course on just bringing examples from the methodology of Dawa as we did today from the, from the, from the sooner and I've been working on for some time now gathering different examples. So this can be a guideline for us and giving Dawa and look at the examples we are giving. I think it was very beneficial. And I know I benefit and hope you didn't shell as well about these these type of examples from the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet sallallahu sallam, and I'm using Hickman dour and in other other aspects of human data, so now we
want to benefit from these things inshallah so hopefully in shall have two brothers inviting me back again, we'll be able to inshallah, continue this course they want to do Delphi techniques as well. But I would like to do maybe a part two of Delphi methodology, because I mentioned the beginning that we need a lot of classes and three classes not enough, but hopefully inshallah, what was said, and I believe when I did my research, and I looked into the sooner the process and and look into the books of our scholars, that these are the the key points that you need to be on the proper methodology. So as we mentioned, that this is like an introduction, a mock up demand, and invention,
just like the coach when he coaches his team, when he gives him the pep talk. So this is like a pep talk for us. We started going through the virtues of Dawa and we mentioned how many virtues
11 virtues, as this is what to excite us inshallah, and to encourage us to be on the path of Allah to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then we mentioned how many things that can help us being successful in our data, the second part,
nine or eight,
or seven or six,
eight things sleep, and we want to be before we open the door for questions, we want to ask, what are these eight things quickly remind ourselves, the most important one is what?
Knowledge then the action upon the knowledge and the third thing, wisdom? Anyone?
before classes, what is the karma of being upright in your practice of Islam? Now, the class was five, experienced six
benefiting from the elders and the ones who would lay down the path before us Do you mean and number eight, it was what patience and the importance of suburb. And one of one of the brothers will mentioned for us when we thought about patients were those who attended the morning sessions.
We mentioned how many there's how many types of patients
the sub three types of patients what are the
sablon being obedient to Allah subhanaw taala.
Similar stay away from us in that which is haram because these two, it's not an easy thing to do. When you have you being patient, you have suburb, on any being obedient and not being disobedient, because she upon he makes it any the buildings look like something is difficult, and it makes it what's disobedient seem like something that's beautiful, and cause the people to it. So it's not an easy thing to do. So you must have suffered on the obedience on the path and have several patients on what staying away from that which is haram. And the third thing is having patience on what allows decree his father subhanho wa Taala. And with this, we see also when you talk about any showing
Islam to the non Muslims, our belief in Qatar and how it affects how we live and how we act in our lives as Muslims, as I mentioned to the bros in the morning session, that you look at the high suicide rates and the non Muslim countries and you look at the suicide rates in the Muslim lands. How are the rates in the Muslim ends?
And you very low, or you can say even basically none, because as they say, as scholars of solar solar, and shares Nakula something that's it's strange, you don't even give it a ruling because it's something very rare in the Muslim societies. Even though a lot of Muslim societies they're very difficult to live in Georgia.
So they may have been developed is difficult when you find these people humbler, they have a man in Qatar, and they they believe in in this color so it helps them deal with the difficulties of everyday life. Obviously it talks about other it's much more than that, but I'm the least three things that are scholars mentioned and must have suffered. And these three things are three types of suburb and with the short remaining time that we have and I have here now in front of me
about four forms, of course the most pleased to fill them out who have not and send them to the front and shallow so we can benefit from the output or the inputs excuse me of what happened or how you benefited or did not benefit from this series inshallah Tada. And I would like to remind that just because the course finished, there's still a series of lectures. Tomorrow we have something which is open for Muslims or non Muslims. And what do you really know about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi Salaam and this was chosen because our beloved prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam he is
what's happening to him now in the West, whether he's being attacked time and time again.
And being labeled by alternative lies and misconceptions. So, we want to now open the door to any non Muslim friends we have and we call the brothers now to any non Muslim friends or colleagues you have here in Doha to invite them inshallah to the selection to bring them with you tomorrow. So they can hear for themselves the reality of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this will be tomorrow inshallah and this will be open as you mentioned, it will be not in the it will be in the lecture hall and not in the
not in the masjid obviously, this is
put here with this please.
So, bringing shalom non Muslim friends and colleagues so they can benefit from Mr. Shallow tada and after tomorrow and Juma we have
a subject which the most that you had requested the most requested, which about 50 of salaat. And on Saturday, we have about the repentance or the because the month of repentance is coming in the month of Ramadan. So we're gonna talk about a Toba about repentance and at the end of the lecture on Saturday, inshallah we'll be passing out their certificates for the brothers who attended all three days of this course inshallah.
And the last few minutes, any questions
for the lectures at same time, all at the same time between mogul minutiae and general data.
Then now the brothers mentioning something that's very important in the Rose image and when they came up with me yesterday, which is about
any I don't want to be misunderstood as the brother said, I felt had to be Imam Bukhari. What are the takeaways today is very important. But you don't have to be a scholar to give Dawa. You can give Dawa with what you know. And as we mentioned before, the bumper stickers we gave yesterday. Sure, Diana, you give a card to somebody anything you know about Islam, you tell somebody about Islam any but it's important I'm Muslim now always tries to learn more about Islam The more you know, the more you can do. That doesn't mean with what little we have you connect, give Dawa you give down what you have. You have the bumper sticker you have the you have the pamphlets I forgot the thing we have a
we have a small bag I forgot in the car. It's called the happy but Darya it's a small bag it has every language in it, it has a pamphlet for them. So when you pull up to a gas station from a national you see you give him what this pamphlet so you can just do doesn't need knowledge to do this. But obviously knowledge any is what you mentioned yesterday was a medic said what is watching upon you in your night in your day you must know so you must learn the basic of Islam for yourself before before even giving Dawa and as of last month as for emphasis alikum narrow so you need to first start with yourself give doubt to yourself you've dealt to yourself to practice in shallow
your religion and then after that also and shallow you with this knowledge you can call to Islam you don't need a certain is a certain amount of level you have to have anything you have any fear you have given to the people they need it only the people are in need of this knowledge you have and of this religion you have anything you have. You don't have to have knowledge you can be ignorant and give somebody a pamphlet about Islam if he comes to talk to you it's haram to talk about something you say Allah I don't know this but he said we have a center who has people are specialized in this we can we can take you to them we have brothers who are specialized inshallah, if you pick up the
phone and you call the brothers here they will send you in all the languages they have or any other data center here in Doha as well. They will send you in shadow someone who specialized in that in to talk to them and channeled data so that you don't need end to give doubt but you must have and this was a if you want to be successful, you want to be good in your data obviously you must have in
look ups like this are too hard to to to make desperate The pants are the most
What I mean is this
challenges before us is so great.
to expect How
have forgotten this. So that's what we think that we need to start with. We don't have to sit
in the shop mature
This is something not in my hands. It goes back to the brothers in the administration. But inshallah I think the they heard the thing that inshallah it's a request that these type of programs be more frequent
Shalom hamdulillah we have the hatred oma, any brothers who can come in and do these type of seminars and lectures and courses inshallah, so inshallah hopefully the brothers now I know they have the desire to do so I've sat with them and they have the desire to do so and they have talked to me personally about coming in on a more regular basis inshallah This is in person, so inshallah inshallah I told them I wanted to do so, hopefully inshallah I will do this and if they don't do it and shall you chase them down until they do inshallah and then
more than three
when I meet them, they show me things which I cannot afford in front of others, they say, he should buy this much and I feel bad.
So is it
the second part of the question I didn't understand did they do what
I told them
so you don't want to talk to them again or
never missable as clearly clearly as you can not make hedger any to boycott your Muslim brother for more than three days. So inshallah just keep giving them to see how that you don't want to talk about these issues because it affects you and everyone shall eventually they will give into inshallah
and tell them that's a good idea. Say so sure. So how do you always want me to buy it you can buy it for me inshallah.
Yeah, obviously, that we mentioned at the beginning, the importance of tawheed It's them it's the key to the dour instability. The downside is that it was what all the profits and it's not to salvage what they call to call to to eat. So the basically the Dow is is no entity. And I mentioned also the effect it has not just on you and on the Muslims. And I don't think we have time today but I'm when I was given the lesson in Sudafed. This morning, we mentioned the story of Abdullah even had ever
thought of the law. And he was a prisoner of war captured by the Romans during the time of Milan. And they saw the strength in a man these Sahaba and the Muslim from the tiberian that they had in their Deen in their religion. So they wanted to test them and he wanted this man from the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim to make read their to leave Islam to come to Christianity. So he took several steps in doing so. One of them was to offer him to marry his daughter. And to give him half of what he owned half of what he owned. He's the king of the Romans now, so what he owns was a lot. And also his daughter was probably somebody who was Mashallah, because the king always married with
the most beautiful woman in the city. So the daughter usually comes out similar. So he's now offering his daughter and half of what he owns.
Today, he said, if you gave me all of what you own, and always in the world, I would not leave the Dena Mohammed said, Allah who lives in the state, where does it come from? It comes from the strength into heat, that really, relative to where it's coming from. And is it any imagine this offer, this is something that fitness for a person after this, they start to do different ways of torture.
And in the don't give him food and water for over three days like that. And they put it in front of him, the Kinsey and the Hummer alcohol on the pork.
And he didn't eat from and drink from it is he allowed to eat and drink from it at this time? he's allowed, because he's about to die three days, he hasn't anything to drink. So he told them, he said, Well, law he, by law, he said my religion permits me to drink from Israel in this situation. But he said I wouldn't eat and drink from it because I wouldn't give you the pleasure of seeing me and drink from it. Look at the toe heat. I don't know. After this, they went to other steps about different things of torture, put anyone across shooting arrows at him. And the last step they came to, was to bring a big pot of hot copper melted copper. And they brought one of the other Muslims
from the prison of war and they threw him into this boiling copper. I was the only thing that came up on the top of it was a few of this Muslims bones. So they came to throw up the level of effort into the same boiling hot copper. And he started to cry.
Well, Dylan, when he started to cry,
the king he said, Oh stop, stop. Now we got it. He's crying now. He sees a soft spot.
So we asked him why are you crying? He said I'm not crying because I feared death. He said I'm crying because I wish with every hair on my body. I had a soul. There'll be tortured in this way in the path of Allah soprano with Allah
Subhana Allah. So the king Upon hearing this, he said, What is it
He relaxed this, this theory, this Eman these people have it's not something normal. Isn't that something normal? So he said, I'll give you one last any thing to see if you do it or not? He said kiss my head and I'll let you go
now we come back to issues I told the brothers about the fifth having having knowledge I mean, in bossier our understanding of the deen he has he has fear for the law when he said no. He said free all of the Muslim prisoners of war and I'll kiss your head.
Because why even though it's it's a it's a shame for a Muslim to kiss, just have a person's head. But the muscle has the benefit for the Muslims will be much more if he does it and all the Muslim prisoners will be killed now we'll be free. So he gets his head and he lent all the prisoners of war go. So then when they went back to Medina, and the story was told to Omaha pub bozo. And he said, it's now the right of every Muslim who sees Abdullah to kiss him on his head because you know, he had the fifth, and they will see you in the religion. So he got up, we'll be alone and he kissed him on his head in front of everybody. So now you see this type of man the strength and the effect of
the tour he that it has when it comes to implementing the down effect. It hasn't other people. And I mentioned something else story which I found very beneficial. It talks about the reality of vision and the benefit of the religion is that shift use of sts he told us her story one time we were in Medina, he said that when he first became Muslim, he met a man in the street, a Christian man who asked him about jihad. So he said, You know I want to be you know, have no politics now be a politician? He said no, do you have enough striving against yourself and this and this and as I'm going on to the losers the greater Jihad and all of this
stuff and listening he's being respectful he said no, no, he said, I don't want that. He said I want the kids in Palestine he's guys throwing the rocks. He said What is this?
He said why didn't find another more political answer since jihad is all they have? They're defending themselves. So he said suppiler he said You mean to tell me that you will be willing to die for your religion? He's asking you a few semesters the shift said yes, I'll be willing to die from a region so the man said suppose he said as a pilot he said I said I wish I had a religion I'd be willing to die for he said I would not be willing to cross the street from my religion. So Pamela so you see when you hold strong to religion and you're affirming your religion and your diploma the effect it has on the people and you see the strength and of the to heat and had the effect it has on
the people so this is what we need to focus on right now and this is the core to our power and be successful in the methodology of Gallup and I believe the time is up and close to prayer how much time we have left.
That's it was the boss he left.
Okay, hello, this we finish inshallah, and shall we, as you mentioned is through the lectures and shall hopefully you will attend and benefit as well inshallah.
