to soiree coming.
wanna worry about too
me know salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah that.
One the second part of season a new Holly salatu salam. And see the know Ali Salam is one of those individuals who has been named as old as
old as the messengers of absolute determination, and messengers of absolute determination. And there are five messengers all together who have had this rank amongst all the messengers, when I say that.
The next one is, Rahim, Allah salam, Danny Segura, Musa alayhis, Salam Sivan, Isola, and Sina Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. From these five individuals, what you'll find is the height of what they've gone through, and the the challenges that they met. No other prophets met such challenges from people on these five messages, you'll see that also the fact that these messengers were able to withstand those pressures, and go through the different stages of being abused and mocked and gone through many stages of
trying to propagate the power of a light in the face of being threatened with their lives. This is this is one unique thing about these five messengers is that they were all threatened with their lives, to be killed, to be killed for the dour that they were trying to propagate.
You know, say the New Orleans Rambo scene in a while whenever you come with us this week or next week that he was actually threatened to be stoned to death. And say that a grown man I said, was in the fire and say that, he says and I'm almost you know, they tried to kill him. They couldn't kill him say that musasa around, tried to kill him and say that Mohamed Salah Lawson had to make the hatred and they tried to kill him on several occasions, is not that no other messenger got threatened, many other messengers were threatened. But the the multitude of the threat and the and the greatness of the the threat that these messengers were facing, and the amount of times they face
the different threats, no other messengers faced it. Plus their
inside was unlocked, gave them such powers inside, that they were able to withhold what many other messengers wouldn't perhaps be able to hold to such a degree. Anyway, the last thing that we discussed about say the new Khalid Salam was that the opposition and the people who are opposing him, they accused him of being with the low thinkers, people who had who, when they made a comment, they made the comment of whatever was apparent to them by Dr. Rai. One of the other things that one of the things we learned from this is not the Quran is a very deep book of psychology, if you kind of look at it through through those eyes, people
will give credit to those who have deep insight,
as opposed to people who are who just say what they what comes to their tongue. Right? If you want to do a test, and some of the Germans, they actually made this
whole way of testing people. So all you do is if one of test the depths of people, and their ability to think and where they will be with you in certain situations, what you do is you just say to them, just just opinion, opinion eight with them on a certain matter. So for example, if you were to, you know, with the current situation that's going across, which is the surveillance breakout, you know, the NSA and so on. So if you were to sort of talk to people and say to them, Do you agree with this? Do you think that Snowden should be you know, you know, take him for treason, the Americans just taking him taking in and hanging more, electrocuting for for treason.
Now, if if you find out, you look at the opinion, now, give yourself a few minutes to throw your opinion and see where he goes. And he's like, Yeah, Yeah, I agree. Yeah, I think that that's when you, you kind of give your opinions and see how his opinions match that and he's always trying to conform to the way you're thinking, then that's a low thinker. And if he's a person who has views that oppose yours, when you try to say, Well, I'm going to be no doctor couldn't that couldn't be the case that this should be no, he's done something which is wrong into the day and the person
opposes you, or he's done something right and the person opposes you, then it depends on the strength of the opposition in their views of how much you grade them have a deep thinker or a low thinker depending on whether they oppose you and how deeply they oppose you. Now, why I'm saying this is because what happens is people in society as they move along, and as they start to interact with one another, they, they start to sift through, down. And those of them are of high thinkers remain moving upwards, according to the popular rate that they get from other people amongst them. What had happened is saved in a new era salatu salam when he came, and he gave an apparent Dawa, and
he said, there's going to be a punishment that awaits you, if you don't believe in me, those people who like to conform to opinions, and he just said, Yeah, you know what, it's right. He's right. This is gonna be Doomsday, unless we'll be with him. They came Now, of course, from outside, we know, Allah says, Man, I'm gonna be He, they did, they did believe in him. But the accusation of the opposition was, well, these people just went in with you without even thinking about it. If it was us, we'd, we've got deep thought. And we're not just going to accept the Dow that you're trying to give us. Now, that is a good point, which is you want to think deep about a matter before you get
into it. And I'll be very honest with you, those people who spend a good amount of time thinking about something before doing it, they would most likely stay in that thing and become a great bonus than a burden once I get into it. What What I mean by that, well, there are Muslims across across the world, who are a burden to us. And there are Muslims who are a bonus to us, those of the Muslims who are with us because of deep thought and faith, faith, they are with us as a bonus, and those of them who are with us, in a shallow minded and so on, they sometimes can become a burden. Nevertheless, you know, it's good to you know, have have an a difference of opinion. And to ask the
other person say, look, Come on, show me what what is it that I need to believe in? But there's got to be a point when you need to do that because you're trying to find out you know, the truth, not because you just tried to be stubborn. So these people what they did is after saving a new holiday Salaam Salaam wasn't listening to them about about the the weak ones amongst them. They threw something else in his way. They said, Man araca lfv abahlali mubin
Now this was a great accusation, they said that we think that you made a big mistake. They said we think that you're on error. We think you've gone you've gone on misguidance and you will find
this in Surah aarav. And number 62, and number 63, where we're Alan Miller when comi a group of people millat of people from his from his people they said it nella naraka Valley movie and we see you in clear error. Now very interesting here is when Allah mentions mela Omen call me. Allah could have said Carla como. His people said, Allah could have said, Carla for Eva caulerpa. If a group said from his people, no, but Allah, said mela mela miniport. Now, what's the difference between mela and apocrypha, see if I could be any any group from a nation of people. But mala is a hierarchy. mela comes from a root word
that has milone which is fulfillment. There's a there's an enrichment in this group of people. Muller here means that they are the supreme people of this nation. mullet means that these people are the you know, the think tanks are the people who think high Muller could mean that they are like a high sort of council of people, a group of people who are held in esteem. Now why I'm saying this is because a lot of says the same thing in when it comes to fear around. When we study the story of your own, and, and musasa you see that there's a matter of your own. There's this there's this high supreme sort of, you know, educated type of people who are there and who are influencing the rest of
the rest of the nation. And this bahala law is a massive cause for people not to believe in Islam. And indeed, you've got to understand that there's good there's always going to be until the day of judgment, a group of people who will influence others who are at the highest stage of the society. So for example, in this in this day,
Ah, like, you know, you've got, let's just look at the parliament. So let's look at the government, let's look at the people who own the great companies and the great, you know, brands and so on. They are people who are seriously intelligent, they are not your average Joe, who just happened to, you know, make a fortune and found that Aladdin's lamp and rubbed it and it became, you know, rich overnight. You know, it's these are serious people who have used the thought process to to get into those positions. And what's so important about them, well, they start to make the trend, they start to influence people's minds. And if you study what is happening around the world, many of the names
that we've ended up with, you know, like mahallesi, has ended up with a name here, they said, Bala moving and one part of the Quran in Surah Al kamar. They said, Majnoon, they said, a madman, insane madman. Now, these names that they start to create. So voila, the, you know, when we get names like you fundamentalist you terrorist, you bomb Plata, you've got a, you know, a bomb under your turban, and you've got, you know, whatever else it is that they say to you, they, they're only following the ways of the people before them. And Allah has said that that will happen to why these stories are here, because they're going to do the same thing to you. That's why it's here. You know, the Quranic
stories are not archaic. They're here for a reason. They're here for us to think that they've said that they're clearly in error. And who are these people, they're the hierarchies and they set the trend. And what I want to say to you is that many of these names that have been set for us, they've been set after deep, deep thought, when they said terrorist, they didn't say terrorists for any other reason. They could have chosen 10s and hundreds of names. So what they're doing is for good, 20 years, 30 years in the media, they will blast over the world in every other area, they can terrorist, terrorist, terrorist terrorist. Now soon, they won't have to say muslim terrorist, they
just have to say terrorist attack. A guy with a beard and turban on his head. That's a terrorist. Now, that's not the extent to where they want to get to, then they'll say they've already done this with the caricatures of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Now, the validation they showed, you know, images they made fabricated of our profits and lots of them with a bomb Andries turban, or a bomb. Where is turban supposed to be? Why did they do that? Because they're trying to say that your profit is a terrorist. Now the villa now what they're trying to get to? Well, they tried to say that the Syrah and the Jihad and all that started from your profit, so that's where they came from, but they
won't stop there. See, the psychology behind this is that these people have chosen that word for a very specific reason. It's because
when you get down to the Quran, and when you look at the ayat of jihad, and you look into like suta Toba and you look in Surah,
surah Toba and surah, Allah and Ron,
when Allah said or Surah Anfal Raja, when Allah Azza, wa jal, he said to the Hebrew NaVi,
you are going to cast fear into your enemies.
That word to Hebrew can be translated as you're going to terrorize
we translated as you're going to cause fear and cast fear into your enemies. So eventually what they're going to do is they're going to say that your book a new manual, a new or an is a terrorist manual. That's what they're going to get to. They've already started this. There are many literature's out there. I'm not I'm not trying to give them ideas. I'm just telling you brothers and sisters, that this is this is a reason why they chose this book, why they chose these words, because eventually what they're going to do is they're going to say your Alanna, your God is a terrorist, and he teaches you terrorism through the book, and this is the word terror in the Quran. And this is
your prophet Nadella is a terrorist and all of you are terrorists and the whole religion and so on so forth. Right.
Why they said to Satan and Wallace alarm that he's a madman is because they want it and he said he's an error is because they wanted to, they wanted to make a case against them. And it worked. Because when word for their own purposes, because when the drought came, they were able to say that look, this guy's mad. This guy is definitely on error. And they even went up to the extent to say that there's a bad omen with this man. As long as this man is amongst our, you know, our group of people amongst our nation, there's going to be serious consequences because this draft will not go away. So we need to move away and all the people will
My mad and then it also played played in there for wow is mad because you know later on he builds the ark
there's a drama imagine this right there's a drought so there's you know how bad this drought was that the animals would would content most of them are gone dead the crops were not growing months and months no rain after months and months no rain at all right in the middle of dry land a blue sky absolute blue sky an actual dry land this new alayhis salam he starts to build an ark with his followers. It's like man, you want to come out and you want to see this this man building the ark he's he's building a boat Hey, no, hey, we hit a sail is man you know, you're gonna sail this on the on the land, you know you're going to fly this in the sky and they came out with it just got even
better because the words they chose were actually those words that came to the end of you know the spiced up all the mockery, it has made it even better for them. So, you can see they choose these words specifically because anything you do any action you do and they can target you with it, they will always target you with it and then it will become a common thing known that you are this type of person. Anyway, saving on Oh hello sir and then reply This is Surah allara number 6263. He said Yeah, come on my people. Lisa bubala. I have I am not in error, while our kidney rasuluh Mirabella alameen, rather, I am a messenger from the Lord of all different worlds, the worlds of jinn, the
worlds of, you know, humankind, the world of angels and so on. Now him saying this handle it. No, there's another there's another beautiful thing here which is
Allah azza wa jal gave Satan and who Allah is Allah. He told him to defend himself.
He told Satan and mohalla salaam to defend him so and you will see the Quran. Whenever any prophet is given a reply, he's giving a reply to his people, he's always defending himself. There's only one prophet whom Allah azza wa jal didn't allow to start defending himself. But he came to his defense himself a locking to that profits defense himself and that is saved in Amazon allows him there is no other profit Even though signalosome is very high, even though say the niagra horizon is very high and others are very high. They will all told to defend themselves so they only as they start to give dividends when it came to say the NA Muhammad said last month, they made the same accusation and
they said he's a madman. Allah azza wa jal, he said, Why Naka, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah now the aroma prophet is that you can't be a madman. You can't be a madman because of such a beautiful character, that you have such wonderful habits that you have wonderful ways of communicating with and dealing with people you have that a madman is not one that has these dealings with these communications. So Allah came to his rescue himself in a sort of Florida sort of setting. He says, say the new Arsenal says who can be Salah to rugby, I am delivering the messages of my load. One sahoo legume and I'm giving you advice. What are loving mean Allah, Allah tala man and I know from
Allah, which you don't know. Now, there's another interesting part in this where he says, I am delivering the message to you what unsa Hola, como and I'm being on giving you advice on very, very clear with my advice to you. Now there's a real really important lesson for us here, which is the noose that the word is an answer, which is, you can give Dawa to someone but you might not be yourself very clear and sincere in why you're giving dollar. Some people give down because they want to get brownie points. Some people their only mission is I want to give down because I want the guy to come into Islam because of me. Why does he want to do that for us? Because he wants to go back to
his friends and he wants to say, Hey, man, you know, I converted someone to Islam. Ideally, he wants to talk about it. That is nice. That's not nice. That's not being very sincere with Allah. Now, what is naseeha Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam you said in a in a hadith Muslim, he said at the new Nazi high he said the religion is naziha Nazi Han means very sincere, clear.
It's basically sincerity. You can you can put it as sincerity of being very, very open and honest about yourself. So they said, Who is it that you're supposed to be so sincere and open and honest about? So the prophets of Allah Allah said and he then said, lilla first to Allah. Then he said, Well, era
He then to His Messenger. Then he said,
he said to the to the books of allows origin, he said to the to the people who are the leaders of this team? And then he said to the most common people, you're supposed to be clear with all of them open and honest of why are you doing these actions? Now why I'm saying this is because my brothers and my sisters, that a lot of people today who are given power and who are not doing it sincerely for Allah sake,
many of these channels that you've got, tell me this, right? You've got a Muslim channel, a Muslim channel, and that Muslim channel wants to teach you Islam, and then brings you adverts. Right, with women who are not your maharam who are like, you know, showing their hair and showing the, you know, the cleavage and the bosom or in the adverts in between the two Islamic shows? I mean, how is that? You know, don't make sense. Oh, you got the typical one I love right is the one where you turn on some kind of, you know, Pakistani sort of, you know those TVs, right, so you see a woman in Pakistan, she's interviewing a movie sub, right, Chef Medusa, and she's sitting there in public
cross legged. Right, and she's seated with one one leg over another leg, and she's got obviously her hair all out and, you know, have a wonderful red dress or something, she's sitting there on the chair, and she says, Melissa
advocator problem has the
Right, and she's basically just just just, you know, putting her hair back straight over here, right? And the more we've been into the looking straight at her with she some bear some bear legs, bear arms, showing her, you know, cleavage showing a full hair and all of that with full makeup as well. And she's there sitting discussing the solutions. And the problems to Islam. In I found was that share the first thing I'd say is that medicine, Madam, you know, you're the problem. And the solution is to change, you know, first and your whole TV crew, or whatever they're there about? What kind of hypocrisy is this avenue? Where has the religion religion come to where you got this level
of? No, you want to give Dawa, okay, you want to talk about Islam, you want to find the problems and the solutions to Islam, and you want to discuss that yet, you yourself are breaking the very morals and the etiquettes of Islam.
And many of these TV stations are doing that, where they where they will show you Islam, and they try and propagate. And the next thing you know, you got a whole range of music next week that you'd have. I mean, recently, there's been this, you know, and I need to say all of this, because I really get, I really get annoyed when these things happen. I read a recent article where there was this. I mean, it's been happening for years, but I think he's getting crazy where you have these these Nasheed pop artists, right? Who are glamorizing themselves, making themselves idols in front of men and women, especially the women who go crazy on them. I know there's a number of wrongs that I've
seen with my own eyes. The first thing is, when this guy comes on stage, right, and even before he comes, the gills are going to be
screaming and waving and, you know, it's like, I'm here, I'm married, I hope you're not married. Please look at me, if one glance you make my life better, whatever, and the screaming at the top of the voices. And this guy, you know, his his his singing, and when he's singing the machine, it's not that he's being humble on stage. He's moving his body. Yeah. And he's trying to get them to, you know, to move with the flow. And he wants them to clap louder, or to, you know, say his abuse, whatever, louder. And when he's finished, when he's finished with it, they'll come up to him forget signatures, which they do know about the signatures that they give.
These women want to take pictures with them. And they say yes, so they'll pose for a photo with those women standing behind them. And then the worst part, which I've seen with my own eyes, is that the women actually get so close that the bodies are touching his back. Right.
And he's like, yeah, Rob some Baraka off, you know, let me get some Baraka whatever often I might be able to sing as good as him. And you know, maybe he might propose to me tomorrow. And then the guy's got about six or seven of these women behind him all trying to pose for a photo and he's posing as well himself. And the whole thing supposed to be an Islamic initiate. Wow. I mean,
Why have you made the religion to be? Because in Rasulullah sallallahu time when you go to the original setting of the of the nasheeds. First is Rasulullah sallallahu. I'm used to sitting in a halaqa. And he used to tell you know, like Hassan, imagine Hassan bin Salman is getting up, and he's going to sing in praise of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So he will tell his son to get up and hills Hassan standing next to Professor Lawson, and he will say an issue. And when his son says the Nasheed the audience that he has other Sahaba, the Alon with mine, they're sitting there, sitting down looking down, so Hassan's, not the figure, they don't like, you know, Tocqueville has said,
Yeah, you know, give us some more, you're awesome, you know, come on, you know, there's none of that, you know, they're sitting down, they're looking down, and they and they just moved by his words, the move to tears, this was the general Nasheed.
So halakhah in the province last time, they were moved by
the words moved to tears, they felt a great love for Allah messenger. They felt a great love for Allah and His Deen. And when he finished, it was like, you know, they weren't thinking of Hassan anymore. They were thinking of the words, the beautiful words that had had had a meaning that was still ringing in their minds. That was what the initial was about, the focus was that a lot is messenger. And today, you see the same sort of machine extravaganza, where you will have people focusing on the artist. So it's about him how beautiful he looks, and how well he sings, and how he can move his arms about and how much we can probably, you know, jump up and down or something just
to show him how crazy we are for him. So what I want to say to you is this word here on sobre la comm is I'm doing it for the sake of Allah when my daughter is there is for the sake of Allah. So it's according to the rules of Allah, you know, nothing I find crazy. Now people in my position, and I'm an Imam, people in my position, we have to be honest with the deen as well. So in the sense that it's not just about yourselves, it's about us. And one of the things that we have to be careful about is that I'm not doing it I'm not doing all of this for the praise or for the money or for anything else. Right? So for example, you know, if I was to be called to a dour organization, by our
organization, to a center somewhere to deliver a speech, something like that, I'm supposed to firstly and foremost, put a line in front and say, Okay, I'm coming down, and I'm coming for them for the for the sake of Allah as a result of for example, if I was to be called for turabian to literally start, okay, I will come. You know, first and foremost, for Allah sake, I want to I want to say the Quran to Allah azza wa jal in the Salah, and people will say, I mean, behind me, and that's it. Right. But for Allah sake,
how did we end up with a whole group of scholars across the world? And I'm not gonna say that they're everywhere in any way? No, you know, there are there are sincere scholars out there. But how did we end up with like, okay, the calling him to a certain place, and he says straight up, he says, You got to give me 5000 pounds. Give me $10,000? Before I even come there.
How did we end up with people make turn the dean into this, that they're going to go for therapy? They say, okay, and before I do the therapy, okay, now, how am I going to get that? What? How much you're going to get for tomorrow? Hey, before you even start, so you're going to bargain and say, Okay, how much 1000 pounds? Is it? before you even start? I mean, come on. Is this seriousness? Yeah. And you know, the striking thing I find is that some of these brothers who have a fixed rate to go and give dow the Dow is what are you supposed to do, man, it's like, you know, you're in the man. You've been created. Allah has given you this knowledge to give Dawa to as many people as you
can for free. And if somebody gives you some expenses, if somebody looks after you travel expense, so somebody looks after you, because of your time that you're a handler that comes in its way, Alhambra. I'm not saying it's wrong to take that. But for you to start to stipulate conditions and say that I'm going to do it. If you give me this, if you don't give me this much. Don't even bother emailing me. Or don't even bother, you know, asking me, you know, those same brothers, some of them they talk about.
So I want to know, right? What can as soon as this please. They want to go around labeling things with beta, beta, beta, beta, beta, beta, beta. Anything else is out of the deen out of the way of the sewer system. Do you do that Buddha? When did Rasulullah sallallahu ever ever tell people before I come there, you know, get my breakfast ready?
You know, people come they get my five, you know, star hotel or whatever already. And we've all come there, get my, you know, my salaries or my wages ready. In fact, every messenger in that hour they said, Why my aloo kumala, human agile, this is what Trump said as well, is that I'm not asking you for any reward in return.
It's very, very important for an effective dollar. You know, what happens is a lot of these places where there's all these fixed prices, and it's all like almost like, you know, a celebrity glamorizing that this person's coming, and you kind of buying him to get him across, you know, the effects of those dollars than nothing. You know, you want to, you know, somebody asked me the other day, and they said, you know, the effects of vouchers. And in fact, somebody came like to this gathering here. I think last week, it was, and they said, No, they expected to see a lot more people here. And I said to them, I said, Listen, I said, I've said to this crowd before, and I said,
there's one thing that I appreciate, I said, I come and our companies that we rely on.
And the people that come, they come because they don't want, they don't come because of the numbers. I said, that's where you find the long term. That's where you find true effects of our inshallah beenleigh from these gatherings after people have come to here for several months, perhaps years, then over time, they get molded into a certain shape that they weren't before. But no, all these other talks that have not, I think one of the one of to be honest with you, one of talks don't make a big change out there. They don't it's like you go to what I focus on loads of people. Yeah. Wow. You know, big man, it was DVC. How many people that as was a big thing of us? Do you see how many
people were there? Wasn't got to do with the reason why the Dow was there. Dow is therefore to change, to bring people on to guidance. To bring people on to guidance means that people should transform their lives, according to the words that were said those words, our allies, and his messengers were so eager to transform change my life, and make sure that I'm doing what was said in the, in the in the talk. That's what real real data is for. And that's the real effects of the data. But if people go there, and they come they come with a wow effect, you know, yeah, yeah, hello, these people don't get me wrong, they'll turn away. And they'll say that, you know, it was a
wonderful tool is a wonderful speech. And yeah, I like that part and like this, and they'll tweet and text each other about this. But then the effects of that is a minimum. Now for a little while, they forgotten about it, or they haven't acted upon it. And those people went back to their lives and nothing came of it. The real dour is and the first and foremost is that the person who's given the dollar, the person who's given the dollar, he has to be a person who's doing it for Allah sake. And this will say the knowledge and I'm saying, Yeah, one soloqueue That's number one. Second is another meaning of unsavoury luck means the words I'm giving you, I'm giving you these words without
having any conditions attached to it. And this is another this is another important part, right? Like Rasulullah sallallahu. manies, was told to give Dawa Prophet sallallahu Sallam was told in the beginning of surah, mudassir, the 74th rule of the Quran, he was told while at unknown test axial, don't increase your duties of favors onto people in order to get a return of favors from them.
You know, there's a number of ways people can do this. So for example, you do a favor to someone, and you're looking at someone to do a favor back in return for you. That shouldn't be the reason why you did the favor. As a believer, you're supposed to be people who are good to everybody. So you do favors to people unconditionally. That's your real reason why you should do favors. Now what happens sometimes in doubt, is that you're giving somebody you inviting someone, but you're expecting something in return. So you either expecting even people's praise in return, people still regard me as the brother who is the dad or the Dahlia in this locality. You know, I'm the one who's who's kept
the youth together. And I'm the one who you know, people have problems. They come to me and I'm the one who's talked about in the masjid and I'm the one who's talking about in these forums and whatever it is, right? You know, people if they have this Nia Well, that's not a heartless and a pure pure intention. The intention supposed to now I'm just giving it because unless told me to Cassie Halas, I don't want anything in return. In fact, the best dies are those who when given something in return, they don't want to even accept anything return. And none of the prophets would accept hydia once Rasulullah sallallahu sent somebody to cleanse a car. You could understand the
psyche behind this Rasulullah sallallahu sent a Sahabi to go and collect Zika so the Sahabi went and he was collecting like Zika of different houses.
So he came back. And when he came back, he gave the beta mile, the house of the treasures where they kept all the car to be distributed to the pole. He gave that in, and he kept some pass something back to himself. So the person inquired, they said, Why were you taking that little piece? He saw, that's mine. Is it? How is it yours? He said, Well, somebody gifted it to me. When I was going around collecting the car, somebody just gave me a gift. And this got reported to the province of Alaska. So Rasulullah sallallahu, came and inquired and said to me, he said, Did you did you receive this as a gift? Is it Yes.
Now you think about it. So how do I love him? You know, you just somebody just out of the news gave you a gift.
So what he said, he said, If you hadn't gone out onto the zakka mission, would that person has given you that gift?
And the answer is what? Nope. Therefore, what could this gift become in the future? It means a what?
And one thing far, no.
bribery. Thank you, a means of bribery. Because it could be like today, I give you an idea. Tomorrow you came for the next day, can I can I give you an idea? Next year, give you a big idea. And like you cover conceal, you know, my amounts that I've got, and you know, me and you I scratch your back, you scratch my back. And that's when bribery starts. So this wasn't the time to take the idea. These are guidance that we've got from Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, now a promise, a promise, and the lesson was, you know, if you if he was invited to somebody's house out of the blues, and some will say Yes, fine, but azula sallallahu wasallam it wasn't his habit to go, give Dawa of the religion
and also have like, have a meal or food at that time. Why? Because people would think that he's coming for the food, he's not coming to you down.
And that is that is these are things that you have to think of, you got to be as clean as possible. And this one solokha means that you be as clean as possible. When you giving you know, you're giving $1 and I even love you know, somebody want to go and visit the sick. So we want to go visit the sick, they'll go and visit him at bank on lunchtime. And why are you visiting him a lunchtime man? You know, you want lunch? You want to visit him visit him at tea time or before that or after that and why bang on a supper table I bang on lunch and you're trying to give them a message is like I'm here for two reasons guys. No. So we've got when we given the when we when we act out the religion
we've got to be as clean as possible, especially with our because people will start people will look for anything to try and get back with you. And say the new Allison was was aware of that. Then he said he said our adjective This is again sort of animal 6263 he said our adjective Are you do you find these strange and Jaqen recruitment Arabic better remembrance from your Lord has arrived. Allow God mean come to a man who is amongst yourself new zero calm so that he can warn you while he taekwon. So that you can become people who gain awareness will allow him to Ramadan so that you can have mercy of Allah. Are you are you surprised that is come to a man amongst you. Now this is
another thing, which is
when you have people of the same age,
people have the same sort of rank. It is very hard to get through to those people, especially people who are above you in age or above you in rank. Normally in anything is hard to get through them because they see us but
I will say they'll keep doing what you're telling us and that was a big accusation they made with Rasulullah sallallahu. They said, you know, you have an Aki, you know, nephew, what's wrong with you? What are you doing? We are uncle's via forefathers, you know, you know, we've got a house. Here we say the noir Islam, yes, he was facing at one time, elders older than him, but he was facing people who are of the same age as him. And not only that, one of the reasons why he said that was that they were saying that why does an angel come? Why is it that you come as a man to give this message, why you with such qualities that you can out you know, you can baffle us with your with
your amazing things that God's given to you, as either an unwholesome said, Look, allow a sense whenever he sends somebody he sends somebody as an individual as a man as a human being. That's how it's always that's how Allah will send somebody, but that wasn't satisfactory to them. The other thing was
our adjective the word our adjective is what? Whatever is, out of the norm, people
Who would doubt
whatever is out of the norm, people will stay out stay away from. So for example, if right now, you know, right now you had,
you know, you've got different hairstyles, right? You've got different hairstyles. If right now you had a person who kept a hairstyle where they had a lock of hair here, and a lock of hair here, a man who had that much of lock of her hair, and he grew it to there. Right.
And the rest of it was skinhead shaved, and he had just one lock or two locks there, me and you will look at me with a Whoa. What kind of hairstyle is that you get? You get free ties, and Whoa, okay, we've seen show back and sides. We've seen step cart. We've seen Mohican style. We've seen flat style, we've seen whatever, you know, the curve style says style, whatever we've seen, but this one, what What's he trying to? What kind of thing is he and you think, oh, Where's he from? So it's in human nature. When you see something abnormal, you want to reject it straightaway. It's in human nature. And Allah said, as even as Allah says in Surah,
surah Raj, if you look at the beginning, as Allah said, people are surprised that this has come to a Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. So that's another thing you will understand that when you take your Dawa to people, let's say, for example, I'm taking my Dharma and to be honest with you guys. One is to keep the Dharma revived amongst the believers are wanting to go to the non believers and give them power.
And the real power is to the non believers. The real that was non believers. You know, one thing I sometimes sit there, and I think, you know, a lot of times, you know, what we're trying to do, we're trying to make Islam sound so
easy to the non believers. You know, let me let me get you to think on this one, right, because I don't know which one of you is gonna be the first to try this tactic. But it is a tactic that wakes people up. So what we try to do is that we try to say, look, Islam, you know, you can be satisfied with lovely, Sunny, peace.
Wonderful, all the logical, good, nice reason you can give a flower Tulip and try and get them to come and grow towards them. Well, fine, Allah did do that. And you can see in here, Allah said, while Allah hormone through the words to say that or nor tell them that I will have mercy on them, tell them that my mercy will descend upon them, fine. But you know, part of the Tao of the MBR was, was if you don't believe in this message,
you're going to taste the fire, you're going to be in a fire.
This message tells you that you are in such error that you're heading for disaster.
Imagine you go to work tomorrow, and you say to the guy next to you, hey, listen, man, if the message, you don't believe it, you're gonna burn breath, you're gonna burn. I know, you're gonna think well, why can't you say that to my colleague, but I want you to think about it.
I want you to think about it. Because it's one of the tactics of the Quran. And what say the new Holly salon was doing. It's one of the same things, same repeated insomnia, which is a shock, that you do something serious to believe in it. Otherwise, there are serious consequences if you don't believe in it. If you don't sometimes shock people and say and, you know, they're supposed to turn around to you and say,
Hey, you know,
Abraham, you're, you know, what did you say to me? Yeah, well, I'm just telling you, man, this is a message in the, in the Quran, I'm telling you look, I'm just under under propagating to you, I'm just telling you that if you don't believe in it, there can be some serious consequences where you could be burning and alpha. If you do believe in it. Don't Don't forget, you know, give the good side as well, if you do believe in it as a garden is a very sweet garden. And many gardens that you will be entered into, whose doors are always open or something, you know, so you give a two side to it. And this is what the messengers always did. They gave that why I'm saying that is because there
was a Mauritanian shave.
That went to America, I think about 15 years back, and I think it was only visit or something to America. And you know, in Mauritania, it's like it's all desert out there. And it's like they've, they've just seen Muslims. There's only few Muslims living out there in the desert in some sort of tatty and unkempt sort of tents that are about to blow away with the wind and the living those and that's what the whole life is in the deserts. And one of the shapes was flown over to America. And it's the first time in his life that he came across non Muslims
and from the plane, all the way down till he got back on the plane to hit back racing was that the person
Who invited him? He obviously this person couldn't speak English. March 2 speak English. So this is a pet this person who's the, you know, the person who invited him. So he would say to me say,
have a lovey hubub Bella, Bella.
Bella Talia Salah, have you actually spread the message to him? Has he does he know about Islam? So we say, No, you know, just a non Muslim, he just doesn't probably know about the type cave Stein here, here, grab hold of him, take you take hold of him. So he was, excuse me? This individual wants to talk to us. And yeah, man, what is it? No. So so so the chef would say,
Tell him right, that there is a there is a phrase, there is a word that he has to repeat. And if you repeat these words, it's going to get eternal success. And if he doesn't repeat these words, and if he doesn't enter the phone, then he's going to get eternal, you know, destruction. Tell him to send off my shirt. He's saying that, you know, you're gonna say these words. Otherwise, you're going to be told, can you imagine how it's coming across, right says, I'm telling him that there is a there is a fire that is seven times more hotter than the fire of this earth. And there is a garden, which no eye has seen, no ear has ever heard of. And he's either going to go into this one is gonna call
and tell him. So he this guy in a translating. The chef is saying there's there's a fire that is seven, and saying all of this, right? And they tell him that he's got to believe in his message and five minutes, he would give dow just five minutes may lead alarm to translate, right? And then he will move a bit more forward. And he sees another you know, white American redneck said, Does he know about dow? Does he know about the D? Right?
hey, do you know about Islam, Islam is long said, Okay, now tell him that there's going to be a fire that is telling there's going to be a god and telling you about the Shahada, and tell him he's gonna accept me. And everywhere he went,
wherever he took him downtown, wherever, he will just stop him and say, give him the dollar, give this one down, stop him and tell him to stop down 10 by the hour.
And, of course, he's very exhaustive. But you know what
10s and 10s of people came into the the
10s and 10s of people I've added up, perhaps you might have been in the hundreds, that came to the dean through this form. Because the guy was serious. And the shape was serious, you know, this was, this was a burning desire, that is my duty of, you know, my lord's giving me this duty that I have to give down to the lungs. And I have to say, so what I'm trying to say to them to yourself and to myself, as well as that the real dour is to the non Muslims and you got to choose Look, I'm not telling trying to tell all of you to go out there. And you know, start acting like aliens tomorrow in work, right? But you know, you can measure up who you can talk to like this, who you can't do,
but sometimes this way of just telling them a five minutes
you know, your jobs, your job might be done even 10% even 5% except the dean through that. So how do you know that that is good you agree or disagree with me that that is that is much better than you just being yourself and giving them a buttload of Islam and saying in Assam is peace man, you know, we love you guys, man. You know, we think that you can be friends and together, you know, would you would you agree with me? Yes. Well, you know, go ahead and go live with our because this is this is a the new Allah Salam. And we're going to study all the profits, all the profits game dollar. And if the fascinating thing is that if the profits never gave down,
if the profits never gave down, they would have remained the only Muslim in that time.
There's no secret on why Sam got 70 people in his time to accept 70 or 72 people accepted his dour. Those 7272 are the only ones who survived on the earth. All else in the end a large round. So they were the people who became our lineage. All I need to do is go through these Muslims who accepted the DAO of Satan a new high school at some point, it goes through those people and their forefathers up to Adam Allah salatu salam. But the fact is that if he hadn't done that, and if every prophet hadn't done what they did, that now would have been in and that would have been an end of the of the dialogue. And they say that Tao is a sixth pillar of Islam.
You know, without Dawa, we wouldn't have these mustards as they are. Let's be honest with you. Now. I want you to reflect about your life. Some of you will non practicing and you became practicing. Raise your hands if you became non practicing
From non practicing to practicing, if you did that, on your own accord, raise your hands.
Okay, some of you who are here who have been told about the religion. Tell me if you learn the religion completely on your own accord Potenza so nobody actually told you whether it was parents or somebody else. Nobody taught you progenza? No one, there's 0% of all the people who are here. The good, you know, maybe 2530 of you sitting here.
What does that mean? That means when the Dow stops when the Dow stops, that's when the dean goes into decline. And it's a proven fact. You know, there are certain mosques in there. There's a mosque in Canada, I think it was last year that was actually being sold to a church.
And if you if you know about this, I know you've always struck watch in Canada, the must been sold to a church to be become a church. Why? Because that place, obviously, the one thing that dies out is first, if the mosque activities only become prayer, and salon and go outside and no dour activity whatsoever, then you will see that that mosque within 1020 years will be dead.
If the dollar can stay alive, the wounded Bosnia, one of the greatest crimes there of the Muslim reformed the Serbs, such to attack them as their mustards were dead.
No one was coming. Why? If you look in the history, you'll find out that about 500 years ago, these Muslims live in that area, the mosques were buzzing with madrassas, and the worshipers and whatnot. What happened over time is the Dow
cropped now this effort of trying to tell people no come on? Let's be part of Venus do this for the Dina's do this for the whatever that whatever form of dollar it is that you try to do. The dollar itself is something that every Muslim has to carry on. Because Rasulullah sallallahu mission depends upon us the torchbearers of his mission. There are the torchbearers of every prophet who's gone by in the past and passed away, Allah has given us that in our hands, whether you're in or the least you can do is to give doubt to your family, the least you can do the least you can give out to your friends, that's the least you can do to the people who you already know, the best you can do is that
you can start to give data to people who you do not know, who are not within the circle of practicing or not within the circle of Dean. And the moment we stop our Dharma, you're going to see a decline in the dinner meal laughter because of that.
So he says that they will, they will have no mercy from Allah azza wa jal, if they if they believe in this.
Right. What happened then is they continue to argue with Satan, who had a solid solid. And they started to you know, it was a long process of him giving the hour, year after year after year. And he said to them, this is an ayah in Surah. Hood.
They said no Zima como como hacer la Calhoun. He said, What do you want me to do force you to accept this, when you are denying this. There's a there's a big message here, which is you cannot force anyone with your dollar. Please remember this even with kids. You can't force Islam into anyone. If you try and force Islam into anyone, then they will only take it at face value, and they will reject it the moment they get a chance to reject it. What we saw in the Taliban, I know when the Taliban had taken over Afghanistan, and then the Americans came in. And I was a sad case, when the Americans came in and killed. Hunt killed hundreds of 1000s of innocent civilians. But let's focus on the
people who came out and they shave their beards. And those women who took the hijabs off in public in front of the cameras, Tunisia with the Arab Spring, you found that there were people who came out and is hungry, and this thing about, you know, we are free. And there are 16 other brothels in the some of these Arab countries that have come to the surface through their freedom of expression and the freedom of this and that, and why some of this has come out is because the people were given a very sort of forced religion. And wherever that happens, people the moment they get a reason to throw it off, they will throw it off. You will see Islamic schools where you have children who are
forced without any, you know, any kind of appreciation themselves of what the teaching what they're learning or what they want the
Soon as they leave the madrasah, they'll be the first to do something rebellious against the teachings of that of that another reason why, because he was forced upon them. And that's one thing Satan is saying to us, as well as to the people of his time is that you cannot listen to them, I can't force this into yourselves.
Open your eyes see the truth of this way selves, you know. And what's really important here is that
imagine he was a person who became in power, like Rasulullah sallallahu, he got into power, but he Salah Harrison also was very careful of not to have this Dean being forced onto people, you know, as a as a ruler, autonomy, where you have to come under and you must do these things. Otherwise, this wasn't the case. The case was now one I want you to understand this about this rule of a positive positivity Deen. Rasulullah sauce was time the people who are believers and Muslims in his time, they were genuine believers who love the deen, there were hypocrites amongst them who are trying to cause a stir. But they were people who, who on the face of it, they still said that we believe in
the religion. But an apostate who comes out and says I don't believe in this religion, and I want to reject this religion. And he stands amongst them, what is doing is that he is sowing the seeds of discord and this unity amongst the people, and he's gonna break them up. And why it was seen as an actual treason is because all these people their allegiance to them was not because of their morals or because of a democratic system system. So when you have a democratic system, is that okay? I might not believe in this. But the 51%, or the majority that believed in the system, they have the majority rules, therefore, I must just tag along with them. In an Islamic Society. It's not like
that in some societies, 100%, everyone's on board with this. That's how it is. Since that is the case, since that is the case, when a person steps out of the deen, then it becomes treason unless the person wants to live somewhere else. Because what you're doing is you're breaking the allegiance of all these people you become, you become a person who's saying that I don't even believe in your entire system. I don't believe in the very book on which your whole foundation and civilization runs. It's like almost like saying if somebody stands in Britain today and says, I don't believe in any British values or believe in the British system. I don't believe in any British law. If they say
that, then of course, that's treason. The same way if you say I don't believe in the Shahada, that's treason because he's trying to say that the very Allah and the very Mohammed that make your law are you reject both of them, so I reject you entirely. That's why it was treason.
The same does not apply today.
I want you to understand this when a person rejects the religion they say Mila Pakistan, somebody says that I'm not believing in Islam, Who in the world said that all Muslims in Pakistan have got this allegiance, strongly on to the Quran and Sunnah. They haven't, if anything is like, on Musharraf, or on who's the one in charge now.
This is a very, very,
is gonna be as soon as he
went away, whoever whoever is in power is like his People's Party, and his his party and so on, is not according to plan. So when these guys go crazy, and they said, Oh, he, he's just, you know, rejected faith, so he's got to be taken, you know, to the death penalty. He's gotta gotta get definitely What on earth are you talking about? It doesn't have the same value. Do you all understand what I'm gonna say? The allegiance the believers have got together is not based upon the Quran and Sunnah in those countries. In fact, nowhere in the world is based today. So you can't apply that, you know,
the death penalty, you can't apply that anywhere in the world today, people losing some faith hallas have lost their faith. The only thing you can give is given dollar again to bring the back into the faith. I have I made myself clear to yourselves. Yep, and all these other rules that they come up with. You can't do that unless you strongly have an allegiance together on the piano and the sooner that's the only way you you will you will make that so what say that? No, I said I'm saying that I can't force you because look, the system is not with say them No, I said I'm these other people. They run this society saying look, I can't even if he was in power, he wouldn't force people to
convert. That's not something which Islam does. In the Quran in number 256 of the of Surah Baqarah you will find Allah says like karate, there is no compulsion in religion. You can't force anyone to believe in the Dow that you're trying to give to someone of exactly no higher than 100 inshallah next week 750 inshallah.
