My dear brothers and sisters, we live in a unique situation unlike

00:00:06--> 00:00:08

the generations that have gone before us.

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

For us,

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

we live

00:00:15--> 00:00:17

in a majority non Muslim country.

00:00:20--> 00:00:24

For us, we came here by our own choice, no one forced us to come here.

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

And for us, we have no restrictions.

00:00:30--> 00:00:40

We live among non Muslims, and yet no one is restricting us. No one is preventing us from seeing what we want.

00:00:42--> 00:00:46

From conveying this message from giving Dawa

00:00:47--> 00:00:52

of this Deen of Islam as it was revealed without having to change it

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


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

having to hide some aspects of this Deen.

00:01:02--> 00:01:07

Others in other parts of the world, they're restricted even when living

00:01:08--> 00:01:09

among Muslims.

00:01:10--> 00:01:15

And so my dear brothers and sisters, this is why the scholars of Islam they say

00:01:16--> 00:01:18

that one of the conditions

00:01:19--> 00:01:24

of it being permissible to live among non Muslims is

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

that you're giving Dawa.

00:01:29--> 00:01:34

That you're conveying the message of Islam. And so we are sinful if we are not.

00:01:36--> 00:01:38

If we are not fulfilling this obligation.

00:01:41--> 00:01:45

However, most of us, we live passive lives.

00:01:47--> 00:01:52

We live passive lives, not doing even the least that we're capable of.

00:01:54--> 00:01:59

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Billy who I knew what I

00:02:01--> 00:02:03

conveyed for me.

00:02:05--> 00:02:08

Even if it be one, I have one verse.

00:02:09--> 00:02:25

And so this is a command. What we learned from this hadith is firstly, it is a command from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the commands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they indicate that it is obligatory.

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

Anything that Allah or his messenger commanded

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

is an obligation.

00:02:33--> 00:02:36

And so it is an obligation on each and every single Muslim,

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

to teach to convey the message of Islam.

00:02:42--> 00:02:44

But this Hadith also teaches us

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

that everyone is different.

00:02:50--> 00:02:53

And some people are more knowledgeable than others.

00:02:55--> 00:02:57

And so just because you know, little,

00:02:59--> 00:03:03

just because your knowledge of Islam is literal, it does not excuse you.

00:03:04--> 00:03:12

From this obligation of giving Dawa. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Teach convey even if it be one eye.

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

And which Muslim can say he does not know

00:03:17--> 00:03:23

when I have the Quran, or one concept of Islam that you can pass on to others.
