For a lot of people that
follow the path of Russia until the last day
presenting the topic of
commanding the good
and evil, lavish and humble.
when a law says that we should clear a punishment.
Sometimes the law punishes individuals

So Allah punished all of them.

But at the same time, it's a warning for us that we don't fall into the same tactic.

truly believe, and he loves his brother, what he loves himself. And like this should be the motivating force. It's like the motivating force, for commanding the good and evil, because the same way that we
see certain things that we consider good for ourselves, to protect ourselves, to earn for ourselves award in the next lap, especially
these things that we see important and good for ourselves, we should also
we should also wish to
become the GP for
all others, what we
recognize as good
as well as to prohibit them from things that we recognize.
He went on quoting another verse from the barbarians, the commander, the rising sun, command is evil, and to the patient, what they
should be patient about
trying to command Good and Evil because the process of command command is good and evil is not an easy process.
Because the forces of evil in the society are great means that they will turn against the individual, they will try to harm them in different ways that maybe the person didn't do badly or
ignoring you feel bad or spamming a door in your face can come in many different ways. But
these forces will try to repel
the effort that you're making.

we have to be patient
with whatever we find ourselves in the wild combine of the good and evil
and that's you know, that is one of the great

is one of the best expressions.
He also pointed out that, you know, you shouldn't have regret,
what you're doing shouldn't give up.
property because of course, many
people like likely to reject what you're saying or ignore what you're saying, is very easy for you to feel is the point
and to give up trying to solve it.
Again, of course, for the rest of the
you know that there's nothing required of the Prophet, or the messenger beyond
conveying the message enough as a principle, so problems, were in a law saying that to him, because of the sadness that he felt when people rejected his method. Well, I say that to him, to build up his own
resolve, at the same time, that his advice to us that we will find ourselves because we become like the
guardians of the message after the Prophet Muhammad Abdullah, we are carrying all the beauty that he did. And then without
exception of revelations, we're carrying on that
level, and we will have higher education that we should convey, even if it is only one verse in the Quran, that
we should convey that to others. So it is as messengers in a sense, to carry the message of Islam to the rest of mankind. And we will face what the problem is, maybe not on the same scale, but we will face a version of it. And so this advice is also there, that I use, to convey the message. how people respond to it, is not our responsibility.
But of course,
the way in which the message is conveyed is
to some degree,
whether people will accept the message or not,
because you may have the truth, the best advice, but the way in which you give it is so broad, that people don't want to hear it.
Right, this is why we offer a lot that you know, are going to be the
call to the path of our Lord, when it's most likely will not happen and with good,
good preaching a good good way in which
we have to deal with lively meaning that there are times when you may want to command the good, but command is good in a group sometimes may be evil,
that doesn't take the person aside and tell the person on the side
rather sending into the booth, because in the book that personal ego is
going to react to
every every project or every situation has an appropriate
place for everything right the correct time correctly. So, in the process of amending the good and evil, we have to do that wisely. So that we provide
whatever we can to make that message as accessible as possible.
he pointed out that this duty the duty of falling into the burdens producing evil is not one particular individual, it is for everyone. Every Muslim is required to do it, to some degree, vary based on abilities. And also the children's
position of authorities or people
feel that this job is only the duty of
every single person. Of course, it is a different degree.
When you hire big whoever among the
evil to change hands.

if he is in a position to change it with his hand and he only speaks out against it
speaking out against it is only acceptable for those who are unable to stop the damage.
geeking out again this is for those are heavy in the heart is for those who are unable to speak out against each one is in a position to say something, then supposition

Be there even when one is promising it with a hand or CPR against it, because they want to tell you the situation with a hand but they don't really have it in their heart, then this change does not mean that they will be rewarded for my loss. And yes, it is that for sure.
You know, just to
placate some segments of the society, you know, because you're the religious segment of society.
So this individual because he wants to get in good favor with this way, you know, and keep them in his support, he will make some change here.
But his intent is like to think
he knows people are happy. So again,
john oliver said that, you know, the greatest marketers, you know, is one
we mentioned, of course, the issue of Amazon, that is cooperation in
everything good and evil. And this is something that where we were able to cooperate with each other together. And then there's something responsible for social responsibility
that everybody should feel that
should be part of education, everyone should feel personal responsibility. Because when
you have a situation, as you have, for example, in the state where people may be, you know, killed, raped, you know, robbed on the streets, and people just keep walking by. You know, nobody wants to get involved in a bar in one corner by somebody beaten to death, the other is a secondary or they don't want to get involved politically. Nobody wants to
feel that responsibility. They fear getting involved in getting hurt

a father returned to a favela.
Whereas in a
society, he is totally encouraged to say that Jesus doing something wrong is encouraged to tell him so your inner child should be brought up in a way a child is open in a sense that they see something that appears to be wrong.
Of course, it is the way
they should tell you about it. And you should encourage them to tell you about that. Because you are human. And they are going to decide when you're gonna sit there you might fall into some hair. And if you
then what you're going to do is you're going to become an example for them.
You're not trained and encouraged to speak out against things that are wrong, then you're training them to follow you in whatever you use.
And you don't want that you don't want your children to blindly follow your own actions.
Because for sure, you're liable to be making some error.
You got to get
the practice, but anything you have to give them understand that you are human, you can make a mistake. So you, they should tell you
that made the mistake.
They shouldn't feel shy to tell you,
when they grew up with that kind of feeling, if they didn't, they will be constantly looking out for themselves.
And this is a natural thing. It's a part of the natural state of deliverance,
opposed to evil. And that was a good
example, to bring the idea home, from a physical point of view, that, you know, when we feel anyone in our house, physically sounded sick, whatever, we're ready to rush into jobs.
we want to get that taken care of.
But the racial differences are no different.
We should have the same drive this will destroy the sickness the same way that you know, if you have a physical sickness in the home.
I mean, the danger, the harm, which comes from them are much greater than the physical.
So, you know, he just mentioned it, to say that we should not separate the
physical side of the thing we were concerned about the physical side should also be concerned about the prison side. And the takeaway is that when you see physical sicknesses decide to seek to find out what are the reasons what are the causes, not only that, we just go and treat it with various different, but you try to find out why this happened so that we can stop it from happening again, the same way we should approach the original
laws only tried to stop it, when she tried to see what are the reasons what are the causes,
and tries to then handle the causes, because it's the way you stop things.
Ultimately, it's not enough, for example, you cut off the handle, you know, you chop off the head of the murderer, if there are factors in society, which are promoting this example, drugs or whatever, they have to go to these prices. And
so creating this corruption is awesome.
know, which relates also to this topic. And it was a group of people who are in a boat,
you know, some of the top and some in the bottom of the boat, right? And the people in the bottom were offended by the people in the top.
they decided they wanted to get some water to drink and they didn't want to have people in the top. So decided to
shuffle holes in the bottom of the boat to get some water. Now, one person from among them, you know, what are they doing for the Fed, they want to get the water department saying that, you know, if he doesn't stop
people from doing this,
not only will they deploy them
to this place.
So, in this way, we look at somebody involved in some errands via

the fact that biological man is equated with insects.
So, we should encourage others with no

families, you know, we notice a brother, his wife is not selling a property
because the other people are responsible, there are people who can change their hands, that they are the head of the family,
themselves, of course, in an error, but personally responsible to correct that error in the family is the head of the Father. So we know, you know, brothers,

And also advising them to be patient, the idea of calling each other's advisory services also. Because what's involved in the process of advice for young musicians and of course,
religion is also good advice.
And the second part of the footage is summed up with revised the
evil. And he pointed out that there are three basic conditions that those are going to embark on and should
One is that they should have knowledge.
I mean, it shouldn't be going on some vague piece of information.
In other words, if we're brought up with something, from discussions, we heard somebody say, without really getting solid evidence, then this is not enough for us, it will cause people to actually believe
we have to find out the truth of the matter. When we know what is the truth of the matter, based on the
information given to us by the early graduates,
then we have a body of knowledge that we can call people.
So many great
positions or things we have.
The second condition is that we should be gentle and giving the right you have to do it. Let
know if you were
if you were
wrong, Ross way,
gave the message that he could have run away away from Ross wouldn't have thought is essential that the person has, you know, a gentleness in the way in which
you know, so many times pressure to do something wrong. But, you know, if you react to it, you shouldn't be doing it. Then the person even though what you're saying is true of everything they did
They're not taking it the right way
up, we're able to take it
and sell it to them to the gentleman.
Then people who know the possibility, good possibility that they will accept it. And the first addition, he mentioned, his lack of patience, as we have to do it patiently to be patient with how people would react
to the first one,
we try a different approach. We don't give up on this person feel it, there's no hope.
we have no opportunity.
Or just the person just tells you that Oh, get out of my seat, I don't want to see us as a Shut up, I don't want
to be that way. I
believe that situation, perhaps none agenda director person off. Because separately comes you in another circumstance, you know, for something else when they need you, right? They come to you now, they forgotten listen and come to you know, in need. And in that time of need, what you're helping them you also remind them of reality.
So, you know, this is the approach, you know, that the person is going to be involved in Colorado.
He has to have said prepared, you know, he doesn't give up hope. He puts his foot in a lie knows a lot of words and for every tiny size.
Doesn't matter how the people react. It doesn't say that.
I mean, it's
a human right. But what it is, is as we try not to let it faze us or affect us to the degree that it affects our ability to continue the process of policies. Maybe they need
any comments or questions

is incorrect. Because our duty is to follow the way of the Prophet Mohammed Salah
when he was in Mecca when he was all alone, video optimal.
So to say that is ridiculous. It is really against the way
this is not the way I know, you've Your duty is to call whoever you can, whether it looks
that the point is, is no different.
If all the things were done, you teach is to pass on the message, whoever yours is, can benefit from it. That is with a lot of people join up the problem about the London call at a time when there was normal, he kept on calling.
This is just a part of the beauty of the Muslims in for others of Islam
is conveyed to others even with only a verse
that you heard. And this other he didn't say what you were talking about.
Make sure you're practicing everything you're saying all these different things.
Because ideally, it's better that a person be practicing what they're teaching.
it doesn't mean though, that simply because you're a practicing
utility allows you to decrease your
practice, if you know you're doing something right, which is islamically does not correct, right? It doesn't mean,
it doesn't mean that you no longer call people. You call them and inform them that you are an error. So that they don't
try to change my phone number I'm trying to improve myself. But he should not be doing this. So I do see the calling is on many, many different levels. And
the result of our calling
in Muslim communities, the ideal example exists with a lot of images, we have no way to determine the future is to say, well, we will leave calling other people I was copying
what we had done in the yard.
So therefore, it's a motherboard capable of calling others
we have that ability rejected one from the point of view that is against us. Another problem is
that we have no guarantee of the results of our colleagues. And the command that has been given to us with the call it a distinction between Muslims and non Muslims, except in our method for what we used to call
it to do.
I would get up early, if
you didn't know,
you should give Nice, nice, nice sentences.
Good luck. You don't have the ugly definition.
We got it, we got it.
And the circumstance will determine, you know, how we make a percentage
will depend on the circumstance. If the circumstances such that there were Muslims around the number, there's more opportunity to call them, then there is another thing because you might be in a situation that your job is non Muslim, all the time, professional, you know, who you reach.
They don't even want to hear you.
Whereas you have you know, around, you know, women who are
By the way, there's
so many errors.
you may get a situation where your boss is Muslim, and he is drinking alcohol, for example. I know you have the people in the administration, he's a
bad example. Right, but they don't want to hear anything.
But you have around you all the
beautiful opportunity is
to say should be the percentage of that percentage.
Because we grow accordingly.
In the circumstance, we give our dollar based on your circumstances.

he dealt with it in a way that

So, we cannot and we are not responsible for apostasy of an individual that individually possible there are errors made in the method in which it was given to them or the method which you
can do to correct it without the corrected the issue of Apostasy. This is something
that I love, I wouldn't exist until yamo pm.
So that is
another topic. Another question.
My second question, chances are, I'm not going to get
sort of late fee for the
down upgrade or
of your house.
It's an unfortunate situation where
although in a Muslim society, you know, you should have people will come in with with a
new method in which it is being carried out, you know, this idea of gentleness has been lost, as the amount pointed out, this was a second condition one has to be gentle. So running around and hitting people with
you know, shouting at people in this event, of course,
they're doing the opposite. Although the idea of what they're doing is a good idea. The way in which they're carrying it out is error.
So, it is always wanted to do the same to people that the concept itself
should be in any righteous society. But there are conditions, what are the conditions for this to be done,
that the people should be dealt with
these people have left
you can explain to them that you know, the idea of a washer, this means a volunteer, a person who voluntarily called people to work inside these people are not doing it voluntarily. They're being forced to do the job. So the garbage is not really coming from the heart.
It is that also affects the way that they do it.
Whereas originally, it's the idea of a person this is this is an ideal that a person would voluntarily go out.

You know, the media promotes the opposition, then again, creating a bigger problem. So emotional support for these kinds of actions, you know, from all the different segments of the society, anytime you find that only one segment of
society early diagnosis,
I mean, there will be some benefit.
So the area goes beyond them.
Part of it is in teaching them a melody, but it's always beyond Arizona.
This is as applicable, for example, where no matter the software, for example, they shut down in the area that they operate either with a crack house,

you will be rewarded for that.
Of course, we go to sleep on your side.
And in the course of sleeping, you wake up in the morning or you are in a telco you know, right, you're rewarded for your AdSense invoices people your cycle count,
because you're not held to account or anything when you're in a state of unconsciousness.
So the point is that
we should avoid to whatever degree we can take in an assignment and those who are under our
control, should we
try to encourage them to sleep on the side or in the back? And
there's a logic like that.
And myself, I know a lot of occasion when I was
about the community they had asked me what was the reason why Islam disliked.
told him I really
did not clarify this beyond saying that a lot of dislikes.
I know that in when I was with Gemma,

while going from there taking a flight from there to Ghana,

Time Magazine, it was talking about that problem in America the different problems that they have the operations Africans have slipped this permission despite all the different things at once in the morning, he was dealing with the different medical advances and dealing with these problems everything at the end of the whole article, that article and they were doctor's recommendations, number one on the list was do not sleep on your stomach.

when we lie on a stomach, there's nothing to support it.
So aside downwards, in front of it is just intestines and middle lungs and both sides. There's no support for it.
Whereas, you know, when you lie on your side, because it's not very flexible on society. Nor on your back, you're given a direct report to see this is the best, you know, posture. And they said that he's lying on his stomach was the main cause of curvature of the spine all the way back. Most people in America were common people hunched over the back of it, because

These are things which are

You know, this is there is wisdom alive here is the Why is it.
So the things are done for good reasons there's harm in one way or another if the harm is extremely great, which goes not only to the individual, but goes to the society as a comparison.
But if the harm is restricted only to the individual.
So we are looking, we accept that there are a lot of forbidden
things if it comes to this example. Right. So we avoided on the basis of that.
