In the early days of Islam,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam practiced very privately with some companions and some family members. However the Command of Allah azza wa jal arrives, that you will now invite everyone to Islam. So with this confidence that I'm from a good tribe from good people, optimism, they will embrace me. These are reasonable logical people. He climbs mount suffer, and delivers his very heartfelt passionate speech, inviting the Moroccans to Islam after he invites them to Islam.
The first person to turn against Masuda Lhasa Allahu alayhi wa sallam, believe it or not, was his own uncle. Ebola, when an outsider says something to you and hurts a little. But when your own say something to you, the pain is deep. It's hard to forget it. There's an anecdote that I heard once steel and gold. Were speaking to one another gold said to steal. Why do you make so much noise when you are hit with the hammer? Do you not see me? That whenever the hammer strikes me, I make no sound.
Why do you make so much noise so Steel's response to gold was when your own hit you it hurts more. Because hammers are also made of steel. So when steel hits steel, there's a lot of bang, bang, bang. When your own hit you. It hurts a little more. For a suit allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam. It wasn't only a matter of being rejected, but it was that the one rejecting him, the one standing in the front line, the one raising his voice, the one that broke that silence was His own uncle, Allah azza wa jal reveals a surah refuting him that but yeah, the abelia have you on WhatsApp. And what we learned from this is because I will lab then later on.
dies out of his stuff. He never accepts Islam.
And you can do your best
at conveying the word of Allah.
But you and I don't control who accepts and who rejects. When you're facing difficulty, you need to speak your truth.
You can't shy away.
It takes a lot of confidence. It takes a tremendous amount of courage. Or if you see someone else that's struggling, they may not have the strength to speak their truth so you go out and speak at for them.
Or maybe they don't have the voice that can reach where you are, so you become an extension to them.
But never be obsessed with converting people. We don't control hearts.
That lies with Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah azza wa jal is the one who will convert people to whichever direction he deems appropriate for them, that they have earned they have brought on to themself. Our task is to be beacons of truth. Our responsibility is to speak for those who have no voice and also for ourselves.
You have no idea who your words will touch and what change it'll bring. As for those who never end up reject, who end up rejecting your message and never end up accepting it. Leave their affair and their matter with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Even if they are the closest of your own family.
Be wise, Be humble. Be compassionate, be soft, yet be firm
and speak the truth. May Allah azza wa jal grant us that firmness in our words, may grant us that courage. May Allah subhanho wa Taala be with us and accept from us. I said I'm on equal one with a lie or Baraka
