Woman accidental follow

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

the law you are on the you know, saw the

00:00:09--> 00:00:32

walk or walk on in any minute mostly me. Nana Rahim Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah Al Hamdulillah. We're blessed and honored today to have in the studio with us, our dear brother, Chef phatic NYGH, the son of Dr. Zakir Naik. Michelle, I was settling back Luffy thank you for coming.

00:00:34--> 00:01:00

It's a pleasure to be on your podcast, and I hope that it's beneficial inshallah. I mean, I mean, obviously, the question that many people want to know is obviously about your upbringing, and Subhan Allah and I remember that the first time we met at the PSTV conference 2009, you were both 15 that I believe I have been coming. And I remember you came to me and you said, You know what, you write some advice, I'm gonna see how for me. And I wrote for you in Arabic, I remember mashallah, is that, you know,

00:01:02--> 00:01:35

for me as an upcoming student of knowledge, and they want to see you then, and to see you now, Mashallah. And after you've graduated from many Jama three moments, it's amazing, amazing feeling for me. That's why one of the questions you know, the Ask your dad, and the podcast I did with him, was about that, you know, how it feels to have, you know, on his team, so Pamela, it's amazing. So before we get into upbringing, I want to ask a question, because what I like to do in the podcast is the question that people are waiting for, we delayed a bit like the brothers who accepted Islam from South America, we did a podcast with them. Okay, how did you accept this lamp? People are waiting

00:01:35--> 00:02:10

for that. So we delayed a bit. So we'll come in a minute inshallah to bring him a couple of minutes. But a question I had before that is, other than your father, who are the main machines that had an impact on you? And obviously, we're talking about two different phases. You know, first of all, the first phase, when you were, you know, probably mostly an English language, you know, because the access you had to this, you're gonna it's not gonna be like anyone else's alone button. So who are those shifts? shifts that impact on you, as you were coming up. And then later, when you became a student in JAMA Dyneema. Maria, who were the shoe who had an influence on you, then, initially, when

00:02:10--> 00:02:13

we, when I started my journey of Dawa,

00:02:15--> 00:02:55

one of the most important but natural aid and guide to me was my father. And he helped me a lot, but natural. Besides that, when we were in school, we were always taught regarding Islamic aspects regarding Islamic ethics. And from a young age itself, from a tender age itself, we were inclined towards Islamic activities towards giving lectures, whether it be in front of audiences, 10,000 20,000, et cetera. So from a young age itself, we were given the right upbringing and the right training, in school and even at home. Because the environment is very important when we are if we want to lead an Islamic ally in life, and if we want to be inclined towards Dawa, so this was the

00:02:55--> 00:03:28

most important aspect, having an Islamic environment so that we can be good Islamic human beings and serve the religion of Islam. As far as those people who inspired me well before that one second, because, you know, something came to my mind was, obviously the Islamic school that you guys had in India there, I think was probably you know, the best in the world ever seen. I've never seen anything like it actually. It's something I remember that when they would accept the student, they would see what is the upbringing at the home, and they are, they're going to be on the same page or not. So if someone comes, and they're not serious about practicing Islam at home, they wouldn't

00:03:28--> 00:03:55

accept the student at school because that you can't corrupt what we build in the morning. So it's very important that you have the two and you mentioned that and I remember that that you guys haven't that this was very unique, because a lot of times you'll have a home life. That's a bit Janna, you know, and then they want to properly snap anything, bringing in the school or proper Islamic to be in the school, it doesn't work. If you don't have the two combines together, both things have to be combined. So that's the reason I started with that aspect. Both the things have to be combined. So whenever any student wanted admission in the Islamic International School, we used

00:03:55--> 00:04:31

to see too, that the parents also are inclined towards Islam. And if the parents they are not inclined, so we need to encourage them and tell them that they along with the children, they also have to be inclined towards Islam. So besides the environment in the school, the environment at home also has to be an Islamically aligned environment. Now as far as those people who inspired me, since we had access to the many of the DUA and many of the scholars starting from the peace conference in 2007. So mainly the Islamic speakers who used to come who come on piste with they are the main speakers who were an inspiration for me. For example, we have Sheikh Osman Hakeem, we have Sheikh

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

Salim al AMRI. We have Sheikh Abdul Rahim green, and various other Islamic speakers. So when we had the peace conference, it was a great opportunity for me to learn from the speakers who come on Peace TV and to benefit from them including yourself Sheikh so it was a great benefit. Because it was firsthand. It was an opportunity wherein I could on the spot, grab and have communication with these Islamic DUA and dice. So this was the first

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

aspect when we were in school and when we started with with the Peace conferences now coming to the aspect wherein I got admission into Mr Mohammed bin Saud Islamic University so when I got admission into Mr Mohammed bin Salman Islamic University it was a completely different field altogether because you know it may you know Arabic when you arrived there you didn't you didn't have to Yeah, I studied I studied Arabic in India in the Islamic International School so I already knew Arabic but when I went to Imam Mohammed bin Saud Islamic University and it helped me to enhance my Arabic Yeah How many mister was I mean levels did you do their Imam Muhammad mins? How would I did to Mustafa

00:05:35--> 00:06:08

Mustafa Taliban? Mr. Ravi Yeah, that's good. It's like introduction to get you ready for because obviously the Arabic is gonna be at a higher level. So it's very Yes, yes. Because an Imam Mohammed bin Salman university, you cannot directly get admission into bachelors. Okay, you have to do the math course. So normally they recommend Mr. Fallon, Mr. Ravi, the third and the fourth semester. It's good. It's like introduction for you get you ready for the good. And the most important thing besides the university studies are the gurus of the Messiah outside the university. So as we know that in Riyadh, it is a place where and then numerous scholars, so that's the reason I chose Riyadh,

00:06:09--> 00:06:42

Medina University also it is very good. It is amazing, no doubt, but majority of the students who aren't Medina university, they are foreigners. And that's one of the criteria. In fact, when they accept the students in Medina University, majority of the students they accept are foreigners, because it is mainly made for the foreign executives. That's when they made the decision. They actually established it. It was for foreigners. Yes. So they they it's still today. Hamdulillah you know, the soldier more today? It used to be like 10% I think it's like 2530 might be more but there that was the goal. Geometry mom, obviously it's a totally different Yes, mom, mom sold university it

00:06:42--> 00:07:19

is close to 1% are in fact a little bit less than 1% of foreigners. Yes. Now they may have increased a little bit more. But this is a situation Imam Mohammed bin Zayed University and majority of the Messiah they are in Riyadh, the capital city of Saudi Arabia, Israel. So one of the Messiah who inspired me a lot was Sheikh Abdullah Zia today fee. So I used to attend his Druze when I was in the market, and later on as well. So he was one of the main main instrumental tools as far as Islamic knowledge and knowledge of Sharia is concerned. Because if you listen to his gurus, if you listen to his lectures, you will see that he is mashallah he's young. And he is very experienced, as far as

00:07:19--> 00:07:52

Islamic knowledge is concerned, as far as Sharia is concerned. And he is a very dedicated person. And he's very knowledgeable, but natural. So he was one of the main instrumental tools when I used to listen to his gurus, and I used to attend his drusen person as well. So he was the main person who inspired me. And But naturally, in addition to this, as well, there were other teachers, specific teachers, but natural, they're not very famous, they're not really popular, but they were the teachers who helped me a lot, for example, the teachers or the teachers have sold these they weren't, they're not very popular, but at the same time, there are many Musharraf in Saudi Arabia

00:07:52--> 00:08:34

who are not popular, but at the same time, they are very knowledgeable. So these teachers, they helped me to acquire the right Islamic knowledge, the knowledge of Sharia, so that was very beneficial. So besides Learning Tower, which we learned in India, and which is which we learned in school as well, besides this knowledge of Dawa as far as the Sharia knowledge is concerned, it I was able to increase this knowledge in Saudi Arabia in the university camera so now you graduated from from Jama to Lima Muhammad Mr. Root and Kalita Sharia the College of faculty of Sharia correct yes. And then you decided now to continue your higher studies Master's inshallah PhD in the Islamic

00:08:34--> 00:09:08

International Islamic University of Malaysia and which field are you doing there? So I did my bachelor's in Sharia from Imam Muhammad Minnesota Islamic University and my I'm doing my Masters as well in Islamic International University of Malaysia in Sharia so basically, in Islamic University of Malaysia you have an option of choosing it in Arabic or in English your masters so I chose an Arabic because no Well yeah, I was right. I was very I was very happy when you told me that other people would have taken the easy route Yes. Which is to do it in English because obviously your upbringing all in English or English, we know from from the from the kg, so it's going to be much

00:09:08--> 00:09:48

better for your Arabic I was very I was very happy to hear that when you chose that. Mashallah. So what is the topic area for your thesis? It's called Set dry while Hulu fit the interests FPF of BP? Yes, we're gonna translate that are translated for example, all the things that are certain things that lead to something that is something that is haram. So, we need to close the doors to those things that may lead to something that is haram and to what extent do we close this door because certain times many many times that happens, so that something may not be something may be haram, but certain ways that lead to that thing that is haram, we need not close the door. So there the aspect

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

of glue 15 comes So to what extent do we prevent yourself from doing these things that will lead to something that is how some things may not lead or some things may not lead to this particular thing that is haram but we may think

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

that these things lead to that door of something that is haram. So, to what extent do we use this corridor which is called a sutra right to prevent ourselves from falling into something that is haram because many times we may do certain things, but these things may not lead to that thing that is haram. And we find we find that in today's world many times people do Hulu 15 That is access and the reason they said this is haram that is haram. So, to what extent should be used the sky definition? Excellent, excellent. *a Colonia? Any intolerable Edmund seeking knowledge? And what else are you doing? Because obviously, that's the academia academic side of it.

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

When it comes to furthering your knowledge outside

00:10:41--> 00:11:11

as a graduate now as a shift and because you're any actually any because if you study property and Jim Anthony Mom, if you studied proper and sub university, you really you become a chef. And that's why our degrees in Medina, it used to be written, for example, why would graduate they would say a share of the Rahim you know, because you you officially do become a chef. And so I think they have something similar to that. But obviously, I think they noticed that some of the people were not really serious in their studies. They're not really sure. So, they remove that later. But I mean, if you are serious about just how did you become a chef now, so when he continued in Parliament as the

00:11:11--> 00:11:16

General Manager, what student knowledge is all about and what is your your program now,

00:11:17--> 00:11:53

currently, as far as there are two aspects one is the university which we are doing it which is beneficial, but not the but that is not the only thing that we require to do. Besides that acquiring knowledge is also very important as we know the Hadees upload Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, when he said tolerable me for real. Now luckily, Muslim seeking knowledge is obligatory upon every single Muslim. So keeping this in mind keeping this Hadees in mind, I always try to enhance my Islamic knowledge. And that's the reason I'm involved in Dawa. Previously I was only involved in giving talks mainly on comparative religion. And initially in the peace conference, when I give

00:11:53--> 00:12:32

talks, it was the same talks of my father, but later on after we moved on to Malaysia, so I started giving lectures on my own, for example, on Islamic topics, why would who would like to be forming the bar the Redman regarding the importance of the masala other topics as well regarding Jana regarding Johanna. So I tried to focus on these topics. And I tried to enhance my slamming also all the knowledge that I've acquired in Saudi and even before that, I tried to practically implement this in the field of the hour, because scholars are those people. Generally scholars, they have immense amount of knowledge. But the role of the die is to simply to make the knowledge of the

00:12:32--> 00:13:12

scholars simple, and to make it palatable for the audience and for the common people. So many times we listen to the rules of the Messiah for the scholars, and they have immense knowledge. But what is the role of the dye is that they take this complex knowledge and they make it simple and palatable for the people. So keeping this in mind, whatever knowledge I've acquired in Saudi Arabia, with the Druze with the Messiah, and even in the university, I try to make this knowledge simple, so that people they can benefit and the common muscle they can benefit at large accent mashallah, the question comes now there was waiting for about that upbringing being raised any as the son of Dr.

00:13:12--> 00:13:27

Rebecca Naik, and as the statement says in Arabic any other shrivel men that can acid This is that the lion cub have that you know that that great lion? Mashallah. So people want to know, and yeah, how was your upbringing? How was it, you know, being raised as the son of a doctor that can make

00:13:28--> 00:13:30

hamdulillah To be honest, firstly, I would like to say that

00:13:32--> 00:14:06

regarding the upbringing that my father was a hard taskmaster. But, but naturally, it is, it is, it was beneficial for me, and it is beneficial for me today as well. That's actually the next question I had was actually was easy data, hard data. Why we actually, when I was brainstorming, what should we talk about in the podcast? That's a question that came up from is I know your dad, I think to call him perfectionist would be an understatement alone. But he's even at a higher level when it comes to his work. And this. And I know when he deals with the workers who work with him, you know, the guys behind the camera, and this is a bit tough, because he wants everything to be and the 100%

00:14:06--> 00:14:40

is not good enough. You know, I remember I was filming in Peace TV one time, we did the whole, like half of the episode. And there's a little light next to me, you know, and it was flickering. So the producer came to me at the end and he said, you know, the light is flickering, we have to do it again. I said no one's gonna notice that somewhere. He said, Dr. Zakharov, we're noticing, and he said he'll cancel the whole program. That's how much he's a perfectionist. So when he comes out, but when he deals with us do it in the machine. He's very easy and very soft. And he doesn't really get rough with us. So I was wondering, so I thought I said How was he with his with his son? Is he going

00:14:40--> 00:15:00

to be you know, which which side? Yes, actually, actually, as far as I bring is concerned, my father was very careful as far as the environment is concerned. So even when we are at home, he was careful that we are not unnecessarily exposed to the outside environment so that we fall into doing something that is haram doing something that is prohibited. So as I told about the school, the environment please

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

is an important tool. So even when we were at home my father took care that we are in an Islamic environment so that we lead an Islamic Rhiannon aligned life. So for more from a young age, my father was the one who continuously encouraged me and but nudged my mother as well. She also played a very important or as far as our Islamic upbringing is concerned, and always my father kept telling that the most important is the help of Allah subhanaw taala. So many times we focus on the ASVAB and what are the reasons and other aspects and we forget the most important aspect which is the help of Allah subhanaw taala. So as Allah Subhan Allah says in surah Al Imran Chapter number three was

00:15:40--> 00:16:15

number 160. Am Sirocco Mala who fella Haleakala come, why don't come from under lithium Sirocco main body of Allah affiliate, meaning that if Allah helps you, none can overcome you. But if Allah forsakes you who's there, then who will help you. So let the believers put their trust in Allah subhanaw taala. So the most important is gaining the help of Allah subhanaw taala. So this continuously from a young age, it was ingrained in our minds, in my mind, and even in my sisters, I have two sisters. So my parents, they always encouraged me that we should always have the will of Allah subhanaw taala that is the acceptance of Allah subhanaw taala if Allah is pleased with us,

00:16:15--> 00:16:52

then our life, it will be a life that will be an Islamically aligned life. So from a young age, we were trained regarding Islam. And with that in mind, my father, he's had this initiative of starting with, starting with an Islamic school that is Islamically that is the Islamic International School. So this is as far as the upbringing is concerned. And even in the Islamic International School, we were given a we were taught regarding Islamic ethics regarding Islam, regarding Dawa, how to talk to non Muslims how to talk to atheists. So this was regarding the complete upbringing in an Islamic environmental issues. Okay. You mentioned your mum, because that's one of the things also I thought

00:16:52--> 00:16:53

about it, obviously.

00:16:55--> 00:17:14

You know, everyone's a doctor, exactly what was his role? And he so I have two questions, first of all, and when it comes to your father, he pretty much laid out the blueprint, but being as busy as he was, was he able to be involved that much? And he because that's important for us to know, because all of us have that, you know, yet, you're just starting out your family life, which we'll talk about and a bit inshallah.

00:17:16--> 00:17:50

So how much was he able to be involved? That's the first question. And secondly, and it your mom, and because sometimes, you know, especially when you're a doctor, that guy was looking at him, but what was the role of your mom as well? Yes, as far as my father being involved, many times people think that when there are celebrities, or when someone is popular or is famous, the thing that is he able to spend enough time with his family. And as far as this point is concerned, to be honest, my father, he gave us adequate amount of time, especially when it comes to the family rights and taking care of the children and bringing, giving the right tarbiyah to the children. So even if he was

00:17:50--> 00:18:26

busy, in certain instances, he used to always see too, that my mother took care of us and gave us the right upbringing. So as far as the upbringing is concerned, the majority credit would go to my mother, because she was most of the time at home and but natural when my father married my mother, but natural the goals were the same Alhamdulillah and understanding was the same. So in my mother, she sought with that we lead and Islamically aligned life. So even though my father was busy used to yet give us adequate amount of time, and whenever we should do anything wrong, he used to correct us then in there itself. And we knew it that if we do anything that is wrong, but natural Allah

00:18:26--> 00:19:02

subhanaw taala is watching us but at the same time, we also I also was aware that my father, he will not let me go if I did something wrong or if I did something especially that is haram resort to it that give having the fear of Allah subhanaw taala is the most important. And with that in mind, it helped us to continue with the Islamic work and the Islamic aspects. And the one of the things in the in the podcast that we had with your dad that I think it was was very powerful. And he said obviously went about some mistakes or some things that he could have made, he didn't race, you know, see if there was any mistakes that he made in his dalbert things if he could have changed for

00:19:02--> 00:19:34

example, learning Arabic, being able to you know, memorize the entire Quran because that obviously made people believe he memorized the Quran. He knows the ins so he knows the Quran very well but hadn't memorized the whole Quran. But he made sure that you know, the shortcomings that he might have had himself. He made sure that you and your sisters mashallah didn't have that. So you guys learn Arabic? Yes. And he from a young age and at the same time also memorized the entire Quran, correct? Yes, yes. So my father's my father saw to it that many things which he was, which he was unable to do, he saw two that we did as far as Islam is concerned. So but natural, he was inspired

00:19:34--> 00:20:00

by Sheikh mrea at a later age. And he started his Dawa at the age of 27, approximately a few years up and down. So he started at this age, and when he was inspired by sea shake and Medea, after that, he started becoming more and more Islamic and being inclined towards power before that he was just an average Muslim but natural offering Salah and doing the basic for it. But there wasn't that urge as far as Dawa is concerned and acquiring more Islamic knowledge.

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

So just because in his early age he studied from a convent school, that does not mean that I study from a convent school as well. He saw to it that whatever this whatever things he could not achieve, in his early age he saw to it that we try to achieve that and we lead a better Islamic life, he did medicine, that does not mean that I'll have to do medicine. That's when they actually very interesting when he mentioned that in the podcast I do with him. Many people in the Duat and even he benefited benefit them Shelties photography as well, is that, you know, not many people aspire to have the aspiration that their children become dies as well. So he had that any aspiration for you

00:20:39--> 00:20:43

and Hamdulillah we can see the outcomes, if we can say briefly now.

00:20:44--> 00:20:55

Tell us a day in the life in the house of Dakka Dakka, Nick as as well as his children, at any age, any coming up? What would the normal day be for you guys when you were younger?

00:20:56--> 00:21:26

And in front of several new as you were being in when you were younger? What would a normal day be like in the day in the life is that? You know, have you looked at the videos online A Day in the Life briefly, if you could just read from the time you guys wake up in the mornings, what you're doing and these type of things? How would they would they be in the house of doctor that kid 100 Alhamdulillah it's very good, because people keep asking that how is the life of of my father, and how does he lead a life. So basically, if we look the basic things throughout the day, so normally my father, he sleeps three to four hours

00:21:28--> 00:21:47

in a day. So that is but natural, less but because of the activities that he is involved in. So that is the reason he does not have enough time to sleep. So normally when he gets up, but naturally does his breakfast. And he is a person who always likes to do breakfast. I'm I'm I'm a person who's many times I skip my break.

00:21:48--> 00:22:27

So my father he likes to start his day with, with breakfast but natural before that, the Fajr Salaah. But natural which is compulsory, we need to pray. So we start with our breakfast. And then after that, the daily routine, I mean, having lunch and then after that, in the morning, but natural he he he does a daily routine that is having a bath and the other aspects. And then when we were in India, he used to go to the office normally at about 10 o'clock or nine o'clock in the morning and then used to come late in the night. He used to come late in the night, but mainly on Fridays. He used to we used to have much more of family time, because on Friday used to go for a few hours in

00:22:27--> 00:23:02

the office. But on the other days, most of the times he was in the office, but whenever I used to come home but natural we used to spend time, late hours in the night for example, 12 o'clock, one o'clock, two o'clock etc. So this was regarding his this thing and one of one very important aspect, which I would like to stress upon that, especially when we moved to Malaysia and when we were in India but natural we used to offer the Tahajjud prayer but it was not as much as we used to offer it during when we were in Malaysia. So one of the most important routine of my father, and which he stresses upon us and even upon my sisters is that be regular as far as the nightmare as far as the

00:23:02--> 00:23:37

patch prayer is concerned. And the longer the magic prayer is, the better it is because this is a crucial time you know several Hadith several verses of the Glorious Quran which stretch upon the night prayer and it is in fact a very important Salah which we need to be regular. And those people want to draw nearness towards Allah subhanaw taala they should see to it that the regular as far as the night prayer is concerned. So when we are in India, we used to offer for example, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, that was the minimum that we still offer, maybe 1520 25 minutes, but not more than that. But when we moved to Malaysia Alhamdulillah we increase our duration of the Tahajjud prayer of the

00:23:37--> 00:24:11

PMO late. So when we increase the duration of the tahajjud, the PML. We when we get up, after we offer the tahajjud that is a preamble and then we offer the budget period, then we feel that we have achieved something and we start our day with something that is very important. And in fact, the second most important pillar of Islam which is Salah, so we should see that the perfect a Salah, and besides the five daily prayer, we should see to that we are regular as far as the tachypnea. So this is a very important aspect, the daily routine many people they do, but this is a very important aspect as far as the routine of a Muslim is concerned. And even it's the in the routine of my

00:24:11--> 00:24:48

father, we see to that we are regular as far as the pMLN the tattoo prints actually any small you reminded there's one of the points I wrote that actually is as well, to speak about this the problem the the program of the tahajjud and its impact on the day and even you know, if you look at the self from the from the beginning, famous story the mom I met with one of the scholars came to his house and in Baghdad and he stayed with him. And when it came time for the night prayer, he didn't get up and pray. So he went back and when he came he found that the water hadn't been used. And he's like, you know, you didn't pray the night prayer. But he's like kind of animal surfer. He said I'm a

00:24:48--> 00:25:00

traveler and he said any Hatillo lab with Elissa Hubble Hadith Yeah. And you're gonna HaNasi boomin and lady said even if you're a traveler is a student of Hadith has to have a portion of the night prayer so it becomes a bit

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

And it reminded me of a book that I read it was actually inspired by it's very good book actually, it was inspired by a general in the, in the Navy. And in America, he gave a talk, I think at Texas University, but the importance of making your bed to start your day there just having that routine and how it is in the military. And then it became a book and a best seller. It's it's very beneficial.

00:25:22--> 00:25:55

But and and now you reminded me is something different from an Islamic approach is how a Muslim starts his day. And if you start your day with it, the hajat and then we know the Fajr in the masjid, and what have you, and you've already have achieved so much so that there's like the impact of making your bed when you wake up one of the novels and they look at it like that, we're looking at a different aspect now and even deeper spiritual side and, and even it's going to help you in in your dunya with things as well, because you're able to be disciplined, you're able to get up from any from the mythology. As you're there, you're in the comfort of your bed and you get up and you

00:25:55--> 00:26:30

pray. It's not easy. So it's it's amazing start to the day answer. If you look at it, it's going to help you even be successful in your other things as well. Yes, in fact, keeping that in mind, because of the importance of the times of prayer. In fact, I have a course the most important so not after the Friday. Yes, very good. So many times you don't realize certain sunnah are more important as compared to the other sunnah. And one of the most important in fact the most important so now after the fry, it is the touch that is the pm late. So that's the reason we should see to that we are regular, and this goes inshallah it will be available on the al Qaeda platform as well, which is

00:26:30--> 00:27:00

the platform which is which uses the same technology as Netflix, but natural it is in the halal, the halal version, and of course, implementing the rules of the Sharia so that the youngsters they are attracted towards the religion of Islam. So So that's any that's I was one of the questions I had as well. And any being in the shadow shadow of your dad. And he that's it can have his pros and cons, obviously. But one of the things I've noticed right away, I talk to your dad about it talk to you about it. Is that

00:27:01--> 00:27:37

your dad and I really I really love this when he said that he wants you to have your own style. Because any a lot of times I remember we had a weekend school to be a school for Islamic Studies open up in Dubai. Yeah, you've been there before the brothers they were doing the Ellen l&d learning and development and there were from the students of your father so they were teaching them and your father agree with this at a young age, how to hold your hand at a talk. They're all wearing the cap with the suit and things like this, if they could do it, you know, they're all speaking like this. So they actually was one of our students for the sham Jaffa Michelle is very talented young brother,

00:27:37--> 00:28:07

Mashallah. He's on the UK graduate there and he was, you know, very good. So I said you can do with everyone except for him. I said, Let him have his own style. It Guys let him speak how he wants and I wish I became known as an engineer and at same time became Michel de Sunland. Fabi. So that your father said that, you know, he wants you to have your own unique style, you know, after you use it as in the beginning, yes, you have the same thing you would speak like him, you would take his lectures and comparative religion, but then you started doing your own thing now. So if you could speak a bit about that, because I think that's very important that you know, you have your own

00:28:07--> 00:28:41

style, you have your own approach, as well, and you're on your own. Now you're part of your father's dental program, but you have your own data as well. Yes, because a very important aspect is that when a person is a beginner, whether it be in any field, you should look at the people who are experts in that field, as Allah Sumatra saints retina Han Shabnam 16 was 43. And so Columbia chapter 21 was number seven. First Allah, Allah decree and Cunnamulla Talmud that if you do not know as the person who knows, so whenever you're doing any field, whether it be an Islamic field, whether it be any worldly education as well look at the experts. And when you're a beginner, initially try to

00:28:41--> 00:29:16

emulate them. Once you reach a level, wherein you have the basic knowledge regarding that particular field, then you can start having your own style, because many times people default as far as this aspect is concerned, they tend to have their own style right at the beginning, without having the basics of any particular field, whether it be Islam, whether it be worldly aspects. And because of this, they falter. And they make major blunders. So that's the reason keeping that in mind Alhamdulillah as far as compared to religious concern, my father, he is very well versed, as far as compatibility is concerned. So that's the reason. This was the part that was late for me that

00:29:16--> 00:29:52

initially, when you're a beginner, when you're learning about Dawa about comparative religion, I follow my father's way. And then later on, once I'm well versed with the Islamic aspects, and regarding Islam and comparative religion, then I can focus on having my own style. So that's the reason initially, when I was a die when I used to give speeches initialized to just follow the speeches of my father, initially at the initial stages of Dawa, that was the early stages of Dawa. But after I started giving more and more lectures, and I became well versed as far as public speaking skills are concerned, because we learned in the international our training program, that as

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

far as presentation is concerned, it it consists of 93% percentage of weightage 7% Only

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

On the matter and on what you speak now 93% is on the presentation skills, how you present the way you speak, your eye to eye contact with the audience. And all of this was taught to us in the international our training program, which is available on the Uludag platform. So that's the reason when a person is a beginner, he better he looks at the people who are expert in that field, try to emulate them. And then once he has the basic knowledge, and he has the expertise, then after that he can have his own style. So that's the reason later on. When we moved to Malaysia, I started giving lectures on different topics. And we have different courses as well courses that I've done for the

00:30:36--> 00:31:20

Alita platform, which are on different topics besides compatibilism. Very good. So what we'll put in the description box below for the for the viewers so they can benefit from LA, as well and Chautala. Jackals Okay, so any that's your own individual doubt when it comes now for your dad's work and in his data? What are you doing now to be part of the team and to help him in that field? As far as Tao is concerned, helping my father in Dawa? The routine that is there for us on a daily basis on a daily basis when we are in Malaysia? Is that we have weekly programs, the question answer session that is live on Facebook, on YouTube, and as well as on piece TV. So we have weekly sessions. So

00:31:20--> 00:32:04

every first and third Saturday of every month, my father handles the question and answers. And every second and fourth Saturday of every month, I handle the question systems. So we get more than 20,000 questions on Facebook, on YouTube, on WhatsApp. And we filter there is a team but natural that filters these questions. And then they send us the questions and out of approximately 100 questions we choose. And we respond to about 10 Questions 15 Questions on a weekly basis. And this helps us to enhance our Islamic knowledge because normally a person may give a speech it is easy memorizes a speech and he just warm it up. But the main challenge is the question answer session. How will you

00:32:04--> 00:32:49

respond to the questions? And how will you respond to the problems that are posed to you regarding the questions of other individuals? So this is one aspect besides this, I also have courses. So once every second and fourth Saturday of every month, I have the live question answer session. And the other the first and the second set the first and the third Saturday of every month, I have courses on different Islamic topics. For example, I did a course on Jana, I did a course on on jahannam. I did a course on who would like to be following the other man, I did a course on the importance of Friday. So like that I choose Islamic topics. And I try to benefit the others and but natural

00:32:49--> 00:33:17

benefit myself because we need to prepare for this. Let's realize the preparation that goes into it. That's it's really benefits beneficial, but also something important just to give you some advice. And he because that's one of the key things, I've benefited my preparation for courses for lectures, you will revise your knowledge, but you also have to have a little bit on the side, just to kind of review the knowledge you took before so you don't forget that as well. Because you come you might get into certain fields. And then what about a solid fifth? What about No, I've been doing my mirage. And so it's important you have to be you have all of those things. Interesting. You

00:33:17--> 00:33:29

mentioned about the jahannam. Annie, you gave us a separate course just about Jahannam or Jana and Jahannam together. No, there were two courses one was on Jana. They've Jahannam any I noticed because I had a topic about Jahannam

00:33:30--> 00:33:58

are actually prepared to end up not giving the lecture but in preparing it when you go online. It doesn't seem there's that much available. Yes. If you go about gender, there's so many people talking about gender. But not many people talk about Jahannam Did you find the same thing when you prepare preparing? Yes, yes. When I was preparing for Jahannam it was I had to hunt for information even more. So that's the reason I chose this topic because I saw that there are not a lot of speakers for spoken on this topic. So I had to hunt more but Alhamdulillah when I when I was preparing I was like there's almost nothing out there you write in you wouldn't see lectures, you

00:33:58--> 00:34:05

wouldn't see this. You find very, very little on the net about it. Subhanallah and I remember when chef Abdur Rahman

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

Rahim Allah when he passed away, Sheikh Hasina Husseini, the famous Mohini chef, and he talked about his book that he has about Jana is a book that I had written about jahannam. And he said, you know that when he first started, it was actually it was very harsh, not easy to take to do. So he kind of put it away in the beginning but then after the the shifts that he went back and read it again, and actually I started to read it then at that time as well. So that's something that's why people I think, don't want to focus about but it's important, now that you realize it's one of the to this agenda. Yeah. But you have to do certain things. If you're not doing certain things, this is the

00:34:35--> 00:34:59

other outcome. So it's very good Inshallah, we'll put the links for that below Inshallah, as well. One question I had as well about the issue of the hijab, and we talked to obviously your dad wakes up his hijra, the impact that had on him, the impact that had on Peace TV, but what about you and the family, you know, obviously any How old were you when you're at that time? Where were you at that time and how did it impact you, your sisters, your mom as well? That he did? He did in 2000 and

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

16 So actually we were at that time in Makkah, all of you outside at the time when Yes, we will be outside our immediate family outside. So normally every year during the month of Ramadan, this has been a practice Alhamdulillah that we go to Makkah during the last 10 days some Villa so we were we were but natural Macau in 2016 and initially started with the with the media campaign and then afterwards escalated, escalated, but natural so

00:35:26--> 00:35:28

as far as the Hijra is concerned,

00:35:30--> 00:36:02

but natural it was, it was but natural gets difficult when you're moving from one country to another country and it's a complete you're completely moving from one place to another place but natural does get difficult but we know that our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he migrated from Mecca to Medina, the most beloved visitor as they say as he said in the Hadith, he turned away and said, in Nikhil Hubbell Bacala you're the most beloved the new places to me, when he said if it wasn't for your people pushing me out, and I wouldn't have left you know, and this is the prophet it said to Salem. Yes. And we know the house of Allah subhanaw taala. The Kaaba is in Makkah. So

00:36:02--> 00:36:35

imagine the state of our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace Bowman leaving the house of Allah and going to another city. So but but we know that there were struggles that the Prophet peace be upon faced and the Sahaba but we should always remember that the greater the struggle, the greater the reward from Allah subhanaw taala so the greater the test, the greater the reward from Allah Subhan Allah And Alhamdulillah our family, my sisters, my father, my mother, all of us are very grateful and Alhamdulillah life after moving to Malaysia is much better as far as life before moving to Malaysia I was concerned and we know the situation India for the Muslims, it is very bad they are going

00:36:35--> 00:36:47

through a struggle. So we pray to Allah subhanaw taala that that media situation get better and may Allah subhanaw taala keep them steadfast. So for us Muslims, the most important thing is the deen

00:36:48--> 00:37:21

all the other things they come after the religion of Islam. So when the religion of Islam comes into the picture, this needs to be given the top priority. And so after Hijra Alhamdulillah Keeping this in mind, we were blessed. In fact, it is a blessing. Not everyone has the opportunity to perform Hijra say for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala so this is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala that we had this opportunity and we had this privilege of doing this Hijra for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and it is a blessing and but natural life Alhamdulillah if you sacrifice something for the sake of Allah Subhan Allah Allah replaces with something that is better and life in Malaysia but

00:37:21--> 00:37:59

natural, it is much better it is more relaxed. And even as far as Dawa is concerned, even my Dawa on an individual level Alhamdulillah it has increased much more after I have moved to Malaysia even on a bar that has increased much more because we have time to contemplate and our direction has been the same Alhamdulillah but we have improved drastically ultimately this is important for Muslims and into when they hear their story not just as as an information okay there's what happened before and after but to focus on the positives I mean obviously being an I remember I had issues back in the day of I talk with your dad I said dad maybe a different country we better than India you know I

00:37:59--> 00:38:33

mentioned this long ago but and he focused on obviously this is his backyard he knows that they're your homeland is always has something special to you. So I understood that But and so to be forced out you're gonna look at some of the negative things that happened, you know, the Peace TV where it was then where it is now I mean stuff that's still very powerful. But obviously the tools the same tools are not there. But like we mentioned it that open up now social media so always a Muslim needs to look at the positives and certain things and that's how the Prophet SAW Selim was Islam teaches us to do any US anti corrosion or hate on the Camino and they know Allah Yeah, animal want to

00:38:33--> 00:39:00

emulate animal, they, perhaps you dislike something and it's one of the Quranic principles that needs to be in inside of the heart of the Muslim, that maybe you dislike something but it's actually good for you and Allah knows what's good and you don't. So this year, I now have the Bible. I think that's very powerful. Because sometimes being so busy being overwhelmed, if you were in your homeland, you couldn't have done that the social media thing like I mentioned with your dad, you couldn't you wouldn't, you wouldn't, wouldn't have done that because of Peace TV, or at least not on the same level in the same you know, it's gone, you know, and perfecting it. And like you guys did,

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

mashallah to Barack Allah, and also different things open up for you as well. A question I had any for you. And because I kind of understood this was even for your dad told me the other night, he's the one who requested you to come back after you graduated from Jama to the mom. And for you, you will probably I know you want to do masters and a PhD? Well, you kind of know, your heart was set on, you know, maybe staying in Riyadh and doing it there. You know, being in that I know as a as an academic environment, being with the scholars, even like my hairs are standing up now saying I think you just remember my days and Medina. It's just it's just that environment. Just it's amazing. So to

00:39:35--> 00:40:00

leave that environment as a student of knowledge, it's not easy, but obviously, you know, family comes first. Given for me it was because of doubt. That's why I didn't do it at that time. I said, I don't want to go focus on doubts. How was that decision for you? When your dad said look, I want you to come back. This actually we discussed that. We discussed that in detail, because initially I was thinking of doing Masters and PhD in Saudi Arabia. But besides acquiring knowledge,

00:40:00--> 00:40:35

In the universities, what I thought at this juncture when we are taking this decision is that now it is time to give back to the ummah. Alhamdulillah. We've, we've studied in this these in the slum Alhamdulillah. I've studied in Imam Mohammed bin Zayed Islamic University. So the basic thing that is required is minimum, we should see, too, that we do Bachelors in one of the prominent university in Saudi, whether it be mom University, whether it be the Islamic University of Medina, whether it be Ummul Qura University in Makkah. So the basic that we should do, we should do the bachelors in one of these prominent universities so that we have a good strong base as far as Sharia is

00:40:35--> 00:41:12

concerned, as far as Islamic knowledge is concerned. And then later on, if you have the opportunity, it's good to do masters in these universities as well. But I thought that it would be more beneficial. If I'm do masters in Malaysia. And at the same time, I get a good opportunity to be close to my father and focus on the hour. So whatever knowledge I've acquired in Saudi, I can use that in Malaysia and use that for spreading the message of Islam. And but natural the knowledge that I acquired before I went to Mr. Mohammed bin Zayed University as far as Dawa, as far as comparative religion is concerned, that was very beneficial. And when I went to Saudi, I acquired the knowledge

00:41:12--> 00:41:52

of the Sharia. So the knowledge of the Sharia, along with Islam and comparative religion, this combination was a great tool, and which I'm trying my level best even today, to use it as far as Dawa is concerned and giving back to the Ummah to the best capability that I can we are all servants of Allah subhanaw taala. And we pray to Allah Sebata that you make us that he makes us a Ria, for the spread of Islam, and May He give us the floss that is the purity of intention, which is the most important many times we see that there is a lot of fame that is involved, and this may corrupt Ania so that's the reason always we should see too that we have a class A Nia which is the purity of

00:41:52--> 00:42:28

intention, which is very important, because a person may do thou throughout his life, but if his Nia is to please people, then there is no use of his Dawa. So that's the reason a class and Nia the purity of intention is very important. In fact, I've done a course on this as well, regarding the purity of intention and focusing upon if lasagna which is the prime requirement when a person is doing any act of worship. If the NIA is not pure, then you're a bar that is useless. If while you're doing Dawa. If your Nia is not to please Allah azza wa jal then all your Dawa, it is useless. So always we should see to it that we purify Ania we purify our intention, and we do everything for the

00:42:28--> 00:42:39

sake of Allah subhanaw taala emotionally so so this decision for you to move back, it was a joint decision discussion, but it wasn't your dad say, you know, come back, call us. That's it, you guys discuss it. And the thing is

00:42:40--> 00:42:55

just the time I knew that your heart was set on that even before asking you this is the first time I've said it to you, I know your heart was set on being in there and then your dad thinks I want you to come back I knew before he said it that he wanted you to come back. So I want to know how the decision was actually made. Just like

00:42:56--> 00:43:01

any another question I have any which is, I think a very

00:43:02--> 00:43:35

powerful one is the issue of the best advice the best lessons that you learn from your father, I have a you can my father was was a non Muslim but when I really sat down and looked who I am as abdur-rahim MCCARTHY today, I looked at the impact that my father had on me and the certain certain things I do with some some work ethic, which I still can't get close to my father's work ethic, but I try to at least do it. When it comes to Amana. He was not Muslim, but I might have had amazing Amana, you know, when it came to it to his work, I tried to do the same.

00:43:36--> 00:44:07

What are the main lessons, you know, if you were to say that this is the main impact that my father really had on my life, whether it be statements that he used to tell you or or actions or anything. One of the most important things that I learned from my father is the first thing that we already discussed is that help of Allah Subhan Allah is most important. I learned this final name when I attended the course, you know, recently, a couple weeks ago, and that's what I talked about in the podcast, because he told me the dowel technique and be with somebody who's, you know, there's things before that. And that's the help of Allah. And he mentioned the verse, as you mentioned, verse 160,

00:44:07--> 00:44:12

and sort of Dalian, Milan. And then the verse also you mentioned, you know, verse 29,

00:44:13--> 00:44:19

verse 69, in the chapter 29, and so it's an uncle boat. We're also planning what that is, and we'll have the energetic Rufina.

00:44:20--> 00:44:53

So that Mujahidin that you strive for the deen and the first of these two that he said that technique comes so this is also the thing that I benefit myself is you know, subhanAllah issue and we don't focus on this enough, they showed the help of Allah subhanaw taala that's where it's very powerful. Michelle Yes, yes. So, from a young age, even at home, my father and my mother, but naturally is to always stress upon the help of Allah subhanaw taala because if we gain the help of Allah, Samantha then everything litteratur become very easy and very simple and many times you may see that certain people they may be they may have certain techniques, but if a person does not have

00:44:53--> 00:45:00

the help of Allah Sumatra, then all your techniques and all your efforts are useless. So we should focus on the help of

00:45:00--> 00:45:29

philos Omantel and from a young age, this is what my father kept stressing upon, he told that you may have all the technique in the world. But if you do not have the help of Allah subhanaw taala, then it is all useless. So besides having besides having the help of Allah, which is the most important, we should also put in the necessary efforts, as far as this is concerned, this is the most important thing, help of Allah smart Allah and efforts, Dan, this is so profound. Why because you as being the son of doctor that can make

00:45:30--> 00:46:06

a lot of times it can become very easy for you to become dependent on the ASVAB are the means, because you have lost the right away, which I know it comes along. But when it comes down to things, you have that you know, the doors are just going to open for you because it's but the thing is very beautiful and very powerful. The fact that he focused so much on this, and that had an impact on you. Because even with that, it's not going to be the same you know, and it won't, if you don't have a lot of help, you're not going to reach the level you want. Even if do you have the keys to all of those doors and and in fact, an important aspect. When we had mentioned Abdullah Zia trophy along

00:46:06--> 00:46:51

with my father, in Saudi Arabia, that was long time back, Sheikh Abdullah Securifi had given a very important advice, he had to let Cut The Rope of your father. That means don't be always dependent on your father. So keeping that in mind, I try to now but natural since the past few years, I'm giving my own lectures there on new Islamic topics as well. And the this the second thing, the third thing is, which my father always focuses upon is that whenever you're doing anything, see to that you do it with with all your heart and try to perfect, perfect that thing. So whenever you do anything, see to that you do it with your maximum capability and do that thing properly. So that's the reason when

00:46:51--> 00:47:30

we see on piece TV, the recording that is on the shooting, that isn't we try to use the best of equipment, the best of cameras. So when we are presenting Islam, we should see to that we present it in the best way so that the non Muslims, they are impressed. And they realize that Islam is not a weak religion, Islam is not a religion, that is wherein people that are involved and that it is something that is of low budget, we should see to it, that we when we are presenting Islam, we present it in such a way. So the non Muslims, they are impressed. And they realize that Islam is an advanced religion. So this was the third important aspect, that whenever you're doing anything See

00:47:30--> 00:47:41

to it, that you do it with all of your hard work and try to do it in the best possible way. And the fourth thing that I would like to stress upon is that

00:47:42--> 00:47:43


00:47:44--> 00:48:22

whenever you're doing anything, to see to it, that you do it in accordance to the Sharia, that would in accordance to the glorious color, authentic hadith of our beloved Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. So that's the reason when my father started the Peace TV, many people, they asked him that, how will you start a satellite channel without music? Without woman? It's not possible. So my father said, At least let us start with it. And once we have the purity of intention, Allah has helped but natural come. So with that in mind, my father started the Peace TV. And he made this near this intention that if he has to involve in anything that is haram, better

00:48:22--> 00:48:57

that he closes the channel rather than continuing the channel. Yes. So with all of these ideas in mind, and with this focus that always whenever you're doing anything see to that you're within the purview of the Islamic Sharia, you never you should see to that you never cross or you never involved in something that is haram. Better not to do something than to do something involving in the event involving in something that is haram. So whenever we're doing any Islamic activity See to it that it is within the purview of the Islamic Sharia. Unfortunately we see that certain people they are involved in Islamic activities, but at the same time they are involved in things that are

00:48:57--> 00:49:11

haram so that's the reason this important advice and seeing this practically for my father helped me a lot and I hope that I'm able to follow the footsteps of my father and continue the legacy of the hobby.

00:49:13--> 00:49:20

Mary married life and now I'm the law Masha Allah Allah bless you to be married Mashallah. And I remember when any

00:49:22--> 00:49:25

you first just got married, it was a it was a Ramadan or before right.

00:49:26--> 00:49:35

And my other move to minkeys one who did the nickel Yes, yes, yes. Yeah. Mashallah. And right after you got married within a couple of days after I was with your dad, in Doha,

00:49:37--> 00:49:53

and we were I think having so hard together meeting actually ended up being so horrid obviously, and it was myself Sheffield's investors use of chambers and we all called you Yes, I spoke to you we spoke to your wife congratulated you guys mashallah so any there's a new new chapter in your life now. So how was married life and your answer better be good because your wife's in the studio with us?

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

How is it now I was it's a new thing. You're a full time student in college full

00:50:00--> 00:50:08

And our now using a new chapter in life. So how have you found it? Now before I talk about post married life, I would like to talk about something before that.

00:50:09--> 00:50:50

So when we were in India, since approximately 2000 13,014, we were searching for a good life partner, my parents even I was searching for like, that's a question I had in my mind. So you actually delayed a bit with age wise. So from your looking from from an early age about 1920 Okay, that is approximately just came on my Why did you delay? Okay, so yeah, so you were searching so you're searching since a long time, because we had an Islamic school so we were searching in the Islamic school itself, and even in in Mumbai, but but for Allah's reasons, but the Allah it is Allah study that we didn't find the appropriate match, because the most important thing that we are

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

focusing on is that the person should be

00:50:54--> 00:51:28

Islamic. As I had Isabela, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon forbidden Deen, Terry batida. So this is the most important thing that when a person looks for, when he wants to marry someone he looks for, for for things, and the most important thing is what you So keeping that in mind, we're focusing on what you but we didn't find the right match and Alhamdulillah when we later on, when we put an ad on the Facebook. First we was we are skeptical, you're wondering is it right? Is it wrong? But then after having a lot of discussion, when you put the ad on on Facebook, on my father's Facebook page, so then we got a lot of proposals Alhamdulillah

00:51:29--> 00:51:32

with 27 million followers or 23 million, which

00:51:33--> 00:52:09

there has to be a lot of the pros of that game. Yes, yes, actually, to be honest, even I was, I was not too much in favor of it. But after we had a lot of discussion with my father, my father was like, Inshallah, this will be very beneficial for us, and we will have a wider scope. And my father alhamdulilah put in a lot of efforts in terms of filtering it, and then afterwards, we had a discussion about it. And then Hamdulillah we, if you don't know how many how many came through here, I'm sure there was a lot of it was it was about 900 900 and then we shortlisted close to about 100. And then from that we shortlist about 10 and then we spoke only to three

00:52:10--> 00:52:12

so that was also a kind of journey.

00:52:14--> 00:52:44

There are different every different journey I think most we haven't gone through a journey like that and it's apparent Yes, yes So alhamdulillah and always throughout this journey and even when India we will always remember the Hadees our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him very nice said Yeah, Masha Shabbat minister, common cold bath affiliate is a witch, that all young people, whosoever amongst us able to marry you should marry. So we know that it is a very important aspect, and a very important fabric as far as Islamic society is concerned. And it is half of our deen Alhamdulillah. So keeping that in mind, we always kept this focus. But at the same time, you wanted

00:52:44--> 00:53:16

to see too, that we get the right match. Because if your wife is good, but naturally your life also in this world, and even in the Accra, it will be very good And Alhamdulillah but natural, the common objectives as well, like you mentioned like with your mom and dad, any with your third beer, that's where the best bet the biggest outcome is they had the common objectives and goals and they were able to build upon that after. And one important aspect is that we always have the discretion at home. That when is the latest that you think regarding the upbringing regarding the therapy of your children.

00:53:17--> 00:53:58

So we asked this question to many people, and people said that, you know, when your child reaches the age of puberty, some people said that when he is when he when he when he gets when he reaches the age of 1011 12, etc. But the lead is if you want to have an Islamic life, the latest that you can think regarding the therapy of your child is when you choose your life partner. This this is the latest because depending upon the choice of your life partner, it this will drastically impact the tarbiyah of your children in the future. So you should see too that you choose a life partner who's Islamically aligned, who would in future give right tarbiyah to the children. So, when my father got

00:53:58--> 00:54:44

married, he also kept this in mind when I got married I also saw to it that I keep this important aspect in mind in mind. Now coming to your question regarding life after marriage Alhamdulillah it is much better. There is more responsibility, but natural, but humble light is much better, and keeping the knowing that I've completed half my dream. So alhamdulillah it is much more beneficial. And at the same time, it is an aid for me as far as Dawa is concerned. So alhamdulillah my wife is supporting me as far as Dawa is concerned as far as lectures are concerned. And she always helps and aids me as far as giving lectures concerned preparing for the lectures. So all of these aspects are

00:54:44--> 00:55:00

usually beneficial as far as Islam is concerned. And as we know that the wife, we pray to Allah Subhan Allah that she's a marsinah There's a fortress against the devil. So we so in this way, my wife Alhamdulillah if if I end up doing

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

The only thing that is wrong or if she may feel that I'm going to do something that is haram, she will stop me then and the resellers. So that is a very important aid that would benefit me in this world as well as in the actress I would say, post marriage life is much better than pre married life handle the circle, okay, before we wrap up the show two things,

00:55:22--> 00:55:33

your advice to the to the youth, if you want to advise them because I think the distractions we have now for the youth are much more the way they're looking, you know, when it comes to their practice their implementation of Islam.

00:55:34--> 00:56:09

You know, it's it's it's more difficult situation, not being serious about seeking knowledge not being so serious about you know, taking courses and things like there was, so there was just some general advice you would give to the youth what would it be the most important advice to the youth and that I would give is that, to read the Glorious Quran on a regular basis, that is the first and the most important advice that I would give them that read the voicemail on a daily basis, whether it be for a few minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minutes, the more you read, the better it would be. If a person knows Arabic as a language, it is good. But if a person does not Arabic is language read the

00:56:09--> 00:56:24

translation of the Glorious Quran was many times you see people read the Glorious Quran, they just merely recited without understanding the meaning of what they're reciting. So read the Glorious Quran which is very important on a daily daily basis. The second thing that I would advise is that

00:56:25--> 00:56:26


00:56:27--> 00:56:32

focus on implementing what you have read from the Glorious Quran

00:56:33--> 00:57:07

and we know the Sahaba that whenever they used to read any sort of the Glorious Quran, they will not move on to the unto the they will not move to the next Surah until the implemented the verses that they already recited. So first you read, you understand it and then you implement these verses of the Glorious Quran and but natural we know that there are a lot of fitna in today's time, so the more a person sticks the Glorious Quran authentic Hadees inshallah it will keep him on the stratum stream on the straight path. And the more we recite the Glorious Quran on a daily basis, the more it will keep a heart connected towards Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:57:08--> 00:57:48

Besides this, I would also stress upon being regular as far as the five daily prayers concern and being regular in the Tahajjud prayer which we have discussed. Allah subhanaw taala says in the glorious price with an anchor boo check number 29 was from 49 Verse number 45 Otomo Haley communal Kitab Akima Salah in masala Openhand. In fact, I will recite from the book what is revealed to the and establish regular prayer for prayer restraints from shameful and immoral deals. So many times people, they tend to do things that are haram and they tend to fall into futon. And the one of the main reasons is that they are not regular in their salah. And even if they're offering salah,

00:57:48--> 00:58:27

they're not offering it with soup. So we should be regular as far as a five daily prayers concern offer it with cusu. And besides this be regular as far as the Tahajjud prayer is concerned, if the Shabaab if the youth they are regular as far as the five daily prayers concern, which is fun, and their regular as far as the tagit prayers concern. So inshallah they will see a drastic change in their life and it will prevent them from falling and things that are haram. So the more we offer the Tahajjud prayer on a regular basis, and the longer we offer the budget player, it will inshallah keep us away from the futon and from among the fitna, and from one that keep us away from the

00:58:27--> 00:58:29

whispers of the shutdown.

00:58:30--> 00:59:02

I think, I think one of the main obstacles for the youth that we have now is that them seeing that, you know, religion will actually you know, keep them behind, we'll be able to advance if they're if they're religiously committed, but one of the things we see and hear from yourself from your father, is that, you know, being professional, and what are the things you mentioned from the lessons that you've benefited from your father's, you know, perfecting what you can and it's from the teachings of Islam, as it came in the Hadith in Allahu hiboy, either amela huduma manana nutropin, who that Allah loves, if one of you does a de that he perfects it, so trying to perfect it. And I think when

00:59:02--> 00:59:37

many people made the youth they don't understand that you can be a good and devoted Muslim. And also you can be very good in your profession. And and I, you know, from your upbringing that if you had chosen, for example, to be a doctor, or to be an engineer, or whatever it might be that you would have excelled in that as well, while being really rigidly committed. I think that's one of the main obstacles that people don't realize I can actually do both and have the best of both worlds. Yes, yes, that's important. So whatever you're doing, you should see that there is a con there is perfection, but natural we on PCB, and on our social media platforms as well on my father's Facebook

00:59:37--> 00:59:59

and YouTube, we stress upon the importance of the hour. And when we present Islam in a way that is palatable and that is nice to non Muslims they are attracted towards Islam using the best of technology using the best of equipment. So the non Muslims they are impressed when they watch piece TV when they watch our YouTube videos etc non Muslims they are impressed. So when we are presenting us

01:00:00--> 01:00:38

Now we should see too that we present it in the best way. And as Allah subhanaw taala says in the Glorious Quran so the first law chapter 41 was number 33 woman astronaut Columbian Mandai Lillahi wa Milla salejaw call in an Indian Muslimeen, who is better in speech than the one who calls others towards Allah subhanaw taala works righteousness and says that I'm a Muslim. So the best profession by far without doubt, it is the profession of a person who is a full time guy. So that's the reason we had this in mind. And we started with the Islamic school my father started with Islamic school, so that in future we can have guys who will benefit the Ummah at large. So when we present Islam in

01:00:38--> 01:01:14

such a way, using the best of technologies, the best of equipments, even the young people, they're impressed, because they realize that Islam is not an outdated religion. They realize that Islam is an advanced religion. And using the technology that is available for us today, we can use it for aid for conveying the message of Islam, whether it be the social media, whether it be Facebook, whether it be YouTube, majority of it, it is haram. But we can use the same technology to convey the message of Islam to the non Muslims to those who are unaware of it. So whatever information we have about Islam, we should see to it that we deliver it to the others as our beloved Prophet Muhammad peace be

01:01:14--> 01:01:38

upon him said Burnley who only will have I propagate even if no one was. So whatever information we have, as long as we know it correctly, the youth should see to it, that they deliver it to the Muslims, all of us know all of us Muslims know that there is only one God, at least deliver that to non Muslims. And the youth should be encouraged. There should be camps. And there should be youth camps wherein the youth they are encouraged to involve in Dawa.

01:01:39--> 01:01:49

Last question, before we wrap up. Tell us something amazing about your dad, maybe something that, you know, most people don't know if he will say that's to say no, one thing, what would it be?

01:01:51--> 01:01:53

One important aspect of my dad is

01:01:55--> 01:02:40

that, regarding the efforts and the hard work, and his commitment, as far as serving the, as far as doing GAO is concerned, because many times I see him that he's sleeping very few hours, most of the times, and most of the times I see that he is many times he's tired, but yet he pushes himself because he knows that this life is temporary, but the home of the Hereafter it is everlasting and it is eternal. So the more effort that you put in this life, in here in the next life, we will have a peaceful and happy life. But if you relax in this life, then in the afterlife, you will have to pay for the relaxation. So that's the reason this is what I learned a very important aspect is the

01:02:40--> 01:02:42

commitment, the dedication, the hard work,

01:02:43--> 01:03:21

that is being put many times most of the times are hamdulillah by my father and I try to emulate this as well. So we as Muslims should try to put in maximum hardwork maximum commitment, maximum dedication, as far as the religion of Islam is concerned as far as Dawa is concerned. And the more efforts we put the more will be rewarded by Allah Subhana Allah Allah subhanaw taala will not look at the results but Allah subhanaw taala look at the effort. That's the reason when we are doing Dawa we always should see to that we put in a maximum efforts for that kid in the mantra mother kid that your job is to convey but giving hidayah is in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala so a very important

01:03:21--> 01:03:37

aspect is the commitment, the dedication, the hard work, which all of us should put and the more committed, the more dedicated we are the more it will help us in this life as well as the next life so the more we sacrifice for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala the more it will help us

01:03:39--> 01:04:12

inspiration for all of us Mashallah. And I think it's a reminder to all of us as well that we see the success but we don't sometimes we don't see the hard work that goes on behind the screen. I know we were here the other night after midnight with your dad you know and that's even though other people are not used to doing that but that's that's the time we have one witness can we utilize and we might not be able to sleep you know and even with the work of some of the younger do they were talking about no time off days off? I was like I know from Dr. ZACK I don't know from from usage so these guys guys don't sleep you know that you have to you have to put in that time so it's

01:04:12--> 01:04:28

inspiration for all of us. That's how the Prophet it set out to Salam was that's how the Sahaba were when they were you know striving to spread the deen and if we want our religion to be successful, then you have to put in the hard work does that go okay thank you very much for taking the time to be with us may Allah subhana wa Tada make the podcast beneficial

01:04:30--> 01:04:30

It's a pleasure.

01:04:32--> 01:04:34
