My dear brothers and sisters, all of us each and every single one of us.
We know someone who is an answer,
whether he be a neighbor, whether he be a colleague, whether he be a classmate,
a co worker, coworker, an employee, an employer, an acquaintance, a business partner,
whatever it be, we do know someone. We cannot say that we don't know anyone.
All of us we do no
people around us
who are Kfar.
Imagine for a second
that on the Day of Judgment,
these people come to us looking for us. Where were you?
Why did you not convey the message of Islam to me?
I am now doing to the hellfire.
And you didn't bother
to share this message of Islam with me.
That will save me from the punishment and awaits me.
The reality is my dear brothers and sisters, that many of us are passive with regards to a dour,
to care about passing on the message of Islam.
The reality is that we are passive because either
we don't value this Islam.
We don't care about it, it doesn't have any value in our hearts. Because if it did, then you would want to share it. When you value something, you want to share it with others.
Or it could be
that we are not fully convinced that Islam is the truth.
We're not fully convinced, and that's why we don't care about sharing with others. We think they're living a lifestyle.
And following a religion that is suitable to them and me, I find Islam suitable to me. I don't truly believe that this is the truth.
Or it could be
that we are not fully convinced
about what is to come.
In the era of reward and punishment.
We're not fully convinced of the punishment of the Hellfire. We hear the ayat we hear that a hadith describing the punishment of the Hellfire.
But it doesn't really affect us.
We don't fully believe in it.
Because we can't see it.
Because if we truly believed in it with full Yaqeen and certainty,
then we will not wish for a single person that we know or even don't know, for them to suffer that painful punishment. My dear brothers and sisters,
if none of that,
then it means that we're selfish.
If we truly value Islam, and we believe in it, and we believe with certainty about the asker. And we still don't bother to pass on this message message of Islam to others, that it means we're selfish.
All we care about is ourselves. And so it is like
a fire that erupts in a building that you maintain, or you know this building very well.
And so you know where the exits are.
And you know, there's a fire raging through this building, and you run for the exit door and you don't bother to guide others who are lost, looking for the exit, and they don't know how to escape.
We have Islam and we live it
and we find comfort in it
in this life and in the era.
But we don't bother to pass it on to others. We don't want others to escape the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala
this was not
how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was,
but rather he had empathy
and he cared for others. And that is why he would fall into grief
when they would not accept Islam
My dear brothers and sisters, who are the heroes
in a fire
in any kind of calamity, in any kind of catastrophe, in any kind of disaster.
The heroes are those who don't just escape and save themselves, but rather, the heroes are those who help others to escape and to be saved.
And so the heroes on the Day of Judgment will be the prophets and the messengers for this reason, because they saved humanity from the punishment that the awaited to people, those who escaped they escaped as a result of the invitation of the prophets and the messengers, and all those who follow in the footsteps of the prophets and the messengers. And that's why Allah subhanahu wa Tada has promised a great reward for those who call to Islam, for those who invite others to Islam, and so Allah subhanahu wa sallam said, Well, men send colon, men da et Allah He, well, I mean, I saw the hand walk Allah in an immunoassay mean, who is better in speech than those who call to Allah
subhanahu wa Tada and do righteous good deeds, and they say We are from the believers we are from the Muslims, meaning there is no one better than them. Not just who not not just those who do righteous deeds, but those who first and foremost they call others to that. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
let in the end Allahu Bica, Raju Lenoir hidden Hiral laka when
he said to ally Radi Allahu Allah, that if one person was to accept Islam through you,
then it is far better than the most expensive of camos meaning that one person embracing Islam through you, the reward of that with Allah is far greater than all of the luxuries of the dunya
and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
explaining this, how is it
that this is such a huge reward?
For a person to embrace Islam through your hands? How is it that this is such a huge
thing in the sight of Allah? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, manda Isla, who then
manda Isla, who then can Allahu Meenal, urgente cannula who mean allegedly Mithila oh god man Tabea, who
Mithila who would even tell you how who lie on kusudama he come in, he would look at him shake
the whoever calls to something good.
Whoever invites others to something good, a good deed.
Those who do it, he will get their reward.
He will get their reward without their reward diminishing.
In the very least, a person who embraces Islam through you, whatever good deeds he now does, whatever Salah he prays, whatever sadaqa he gives, whatever of good deeds he does, the reward is going back to you.
And so the question is, my dear brothers and sisters, what legacy Are we leaving behind in this dunya that will benefit us after we leave this dunya
and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in that same Hadith woman di e la golla
cannula who middle wizardry Mithila realtyna Tabea, who lie on Kusumi Osiris and
vice versa, whoever calls to an evil deed, a misguidance. Those who follow him in that
he will share in their sin without without their sins diminishing, in the very least.
What are we leaving behind in this dunya
those who leave something good, it will continue with them after they pass on and those who leave an evil legacy.
And this is the difference here. Not only will they be carrying that sin, but
once they have gone on. Once they have died, they won't be able to stop
Those sins from accumulating on them.
it's one thing to leave this dunya with sin one's going with you to your grave.
But it's another thing to, to leave this dunya carrying with you sins and
those sins, you continue to accumulate after your death until the day of judgment.
We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from among those,
we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from among those who call to good, we ask ALLAH SubhanA who had to had to make us from among those
who command the good and forbid the evil. We ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to make us from among those who pass on the message of Islam
to those around us
