00:01:29 --> 00:01:30

an adult

00:01:35 --> 00:01:37

14 and a half centuries ago.

00:01:38 --> 00:01:40

The world was living in darkness.

00:01:42 --> 00:01:44

They didn't have anyone to guide them

00:01:47 --> 00:01:48

to who their creator was

00:01:50 --> 00:01:53

and what he deserves of worship.

00:01:55 --> 00:02:03

And so in Sahih, Muslim the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says we're in Allah Novara, ILA halal

00:02:05 --> 00:02:09

for Nakata, whom, to whom, why a gentleman whom Ill

00:02:12 --> 00:02:18

will call her in the US to care, the tele or Atelier

00:02:19 --> 00:02:26

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, the ALLAH SubhanA, who were to look at the people of the earth

00:02:27 --> 00:02:30

prior to sending the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:31 --> 00:02:33

and he showed them contempt.

00:02:37 --> 00:02:41

Both the Arabs and the non Arabs, except for a handful

00:02:42 --> 00:02:45

of the remnants of the People of the Book.

00:02:47 --> 00:02:49

And Allah said to the Prophet sallallahu

00:02:51 --> 00:03:02

I have sent you, to put you to test and to put the people to test through you. You're going to be a test for the people and there are going to be a test for you.

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

And so in the

00:03:05 --> 00:03:10

Allah subhanho wa Taala set the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:03:11 --> 00:03:13

has a mercy for mankind

00:03:15 --> 00:03:17

to bring them out from that darkness

00:03:18 --> 00:03:19

into light.

00:03:20 --> 00:03:36

Elif Lam ra keytab Angela who illegally took the region NASA meno guru Murthy Elan, Nori is in Europe be him. He Lau so you're all pillar is Ezel. Hamid, we have sent you this book,

00:03:37 --> 00:03:40

to bring people out from darkness into light

00:03:42 --> 00:03:47

by the permission of their Lord, to the straight path of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:03:48 --> 00:03:50

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:03:52 --> 00:03:55

was then given instructions by ALLAH SubhanA, who had

00:03:57 --> 00:04:00

to go public with his power.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:02

He called on his people.

00:04:05 --> 00:04:07

And he went on top of Mount suffer.

00:04:09 --> 00:04:10

And as they gathered,

00:04:11 --> 00:04:15

he asked them, that if I was to tell you

00:04:16 --> 00:04:19

that behind this mountain is an army

00:04:20 --> 00:04:24

ready to ambush and attack you? Would you believe me?

00:04:25 --> 00:04:30

So they said, Yes, we have never known you to ever tell a lie.

00:04:32 --> 00:04:34

So after he got this assurance from them,

00:04:36 --> 00:04:37

he said to them,

00:04:38 --> 00:04:56

he said to them, then I am here on this day to warn you of a severe punishment that awaits you. If you don't follow me, if you don't believe in me, and so from that point onwards, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

his message was clear

00:05:00 --> 00:05:00


00:05:01 --> 00:05:06

until the day that he passed away, his message was one and the same.

00:05:08 --> 00:05:15

I have brought you the truth from Allah. Follow me, and you will attain eternal salvation.

00:05:16 --> 00:05:25

You will be admitted into Jannah. And you will be saved from eternal punishment in the hellfire. Don't follow me.

00:05:26 --> 00:05:35

And you will be doomed to perish eternally in the hellfire. And so his people

00:05:36 --> 00:05:40

they understood this very clearly. And it was because of that,

00:05:42 --> 00:05:45

that this bitter animosity, this enmity,

00:05:46 --> 00:05:47

it started

00:05:48 --> 00:05:52

between him and his people, and eventually culminated

00:05:54 --> 00:05:57

in the battles and the wars that took place between them.

00:05:59 --> 00:06:11

And there were many attempts to pressure the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to compromise on what he was preaching, to try to find a little ground

00:06:13 --> 00:06:23

so that perhaps we can all live in peaceful coexistence. We can get rid of this animal hatred, this enmity between us.

00:06:24 --> 00:06:26

But did he SallAllahu Ali, who was

00:06:27 --> 00:06:27

that pressure?

00:06:29 --> 00:06:36

Did he cave in? Did he compromise? We find in his Syrah that he did not.

00:06:38 --> 00:06:40

And when they came to him and said,

00:06:41 --> 00:06:41

Oh, Mohamed,

00:06:43 --> 00:06:45

let us compromise.

00:06:46 --> 00:06:52

We agreed to worship your God for a year. And you agree to worship our gods for a year.

00:06:54 --> 00:07:12

Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed to the Prophet sallallahu How do you sell them an entire surah and that was sort of told Kathy rune, in which Allah subhana who had to Allah tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to say to them, oh, disbelievers calling them by what they are, oh, disbelievers.

00:07:14 --> 00:07:20

I don't worship what you worship, and you don't worship what I worship, until the end of the surah.

00:07:21 --> 00:07:24

Why didn't the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:07:26 --> 00:07:27

given to the pressure?

00:07:29 --> 00:07:32

Why didn't he compromise? Why didn't he cave in?

00:07:33 --> 00:07:39

The answer is very simple, because he knew very well. And he was confident

00:07:41 --> 00:07:47

that what he brought was from ALLAH SubhanA who were to Allah, that he had been sent with the truth

00:07:48 --> 00:07:53

and that whoever does not accept it, he is bound

00:07:54 --> 00:08:01

to eternal punishment in the hereafter. And so it was for this reason

00:08:03 --> 00:08:06

that it would hurt the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:08:08 --> 00:08:10

when he would call his people to Islam,

00:08:12 --> 00:08:13

and he would face rejection.

00:08:16 --> 00:08:23

He would be saddened by this, he would grieve over this, why not because of some personal attack.

00:08:25 --> 00:08:27

It wasn't something personal to him,

00:08:28 --> 00:08:45

but rather because the people who he was set to it was his responsibility to bring them out of darkness into light. And when they're not responding to him, he grieved him because he knew

00:08:46 --> 00:08:48

that if they don't accept his message,

00:08:49 --> 00:08:53

they're bound to eternal punishment, and so he cared for them.

00:08:55 --> 00:08:55


00:08:59 --> 00:09:09

him Ilam you may be heard and Hadith eSFR perhaps O Muhammad, you will grieve yourself to death

00:09:10 --> 00:09:14

over their denial if they persist and continue

00:09:15 --> 00:09:17

to reject your message

00:09:19 --> 00:09:27

BarakAllahu li Walakum until Quran Allah whim whenever I knew what yeah can be nothing he made it with Victor Hakeem.

00:10:56 --> 00:10:59

Hello, welcome to NAV zoom now but definitely

00:11:00 --> 00:11:04

what telco law in the law hobby room Dima neroon.

00:11:08 --> 00:11:19

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left this world, having conveyed the message that he was sent with, in the clearest of words.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:22

And so we follow what he left us with.

00:11:24 --> 00:11:27

By believing in every word that he uttered.

00:11:29 --> 00:11:42

He made it clear through his words, and through his actions, that there is only one way there is only one dean, there is only one religion, that is true.

00:11:44 --> 00:11:52

And all other ways, and all other religions are false. And through this one, Dean, and through this one way,

00:11:53 --> 00:11:54


00:11:55 --> 00:12:03

salvation in the end, whoever dies, not having submitted to this way of life,

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

accepted Islam, then he is bound to eternal punishment in the mirror in the hereafter.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:30

Allah subhanahu Attallah made this clear when he subhanho wa Taala said in Edina in the law Hill Islam, that the only Deen in the sight of Allah is Islam. Well, maybe yeah, they tell you why you Islami didn't

00:12:31 --> 00:12:53

mean well, who will fill arthrotomy? No, ha serene. Whoever seeks and desires a deen other than Islam. It will never be accepted from him. And in the hereafter he will be from among the losers. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in this hadith in Sahih, Muslim

00:12:55 --> 00:12:57

when Lady Natsu Mohamed El Dia de

00:12:59 --> 00:13:02

la Yes, ma Obi Wan minha How the *

00:13:03 --> 00:13:07

Yeah, who knows Ronnie. So Maya moved to Elm you

00:13:10 --> 00:13:11

can I mean?

00:13:14 --> 00:13:17

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam took an oath by Allah

00:13:19 --> 00:13:22

by the one in whose hand is the soul of Mohammed.

00:13:25 --> 00:13:27

No one from my nation who hears about me

00:13:29 --> 00:13:31

whether he is a Jew or a Christian,

00:13:33 --> 00:13:33

and then

00:13:35 --> 00:13:46

he doesn't believe in me. He doesn't believe in what I have been sent with until he passes away. He dies upon that cover, except

00:13:48 --> 00:13:51

that he is from the people of the Hellfire.

00:13:52 --> 00:13:58

My dear brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will never miss his words.

00:13:59 --> 00:14:03

He never tried to appease anyone. He didn't.

00:14:04 --> 00:14:18

He didn't try to find a middle ground when it comes to the foundations of what he was sent when he didn't try to say let us agree to disagree. He didn't say let us find

00:14:20 --> 00:14:21

a way

00:14:22 --> 00:14:24

to forget about our differences,

00:14:25 --> 00:14:31

but rather, what we see in his life. And from his words, is

00:14:33 --> 00:14:36

he stood by his principles.

00:14:37 --> 00:14:44

And these are the principles and the foundations of our deen. And so, this understanding continue

00:14:45 --> 00:14:57

this understanding that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left us with that he left his companions with it continued generation generation

00:14:58 --> 00:14:59

until today

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

and it will continue until the last day.

00:15:04 --> 00:15:05

But now

00:15:07 --> 00:15:10

in the current situation that we Muslims find ourselves in,

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

when we as an owner have become weak,

00:15:17 --> 00:15:26

and the world has become a global village, that Muslims have flocked to live and reside

00:15:27 --> 00:15:29

among non Muslims

00:15:30 --> 00:15:38

add to all of that, that so many Muslims have become distanced from the teachings of the religion.

00:15:39 --> 00:15:45

And so many are ignorant of the very foundations and the basics of Islam.

00:15:47 --> 00:15:48

They wonder,

00:15:49 --> 00:16:00

and they ask themselves, could these people who are my friends, my co workers, my neighbors, my classmates, could these people possibly

00:16:02 --> 00:16:08

face eternal punishment in the mirror simply for not accepting Islam.

00:16:10 --> 00:16:23

And so the reason why so many of us we think this way, it's because we haven't understood the real meaning of Islam. Instead, we have adopted a Western

00:16:24 --> 00:16:37

understanding religion, where religion is spiritual. It's a set of religious rights, practices, customs that you do, between you, and what you worship.

00:16:38 --> 00:16:39

And that's it.

00:16:40 --> 00:16:46

And so, my dear brothers and sisters, a Muslim is not just one who believes in Allah.

00:16:48 --> 00:17:00

He's not one who simply believes in Islam, but also one who disbelieves and disassociate himself from everything that opposes the teachings.

00:17:02 --> 00:17:13

A Muslim is not one who simply believes in something, but he is the one who disbelieves in its opposite. And that is, every display there.

00:17:14 --> 00:17:19

A Muslim must disbelieve in every way of

00:17:20 --> 00:17:30

religion out there. And so what all of this means is, you cannot be a Muslim. You cannot be a Muslim, and believe

00:17:31 --> 00:17:43

the other religions are valid. And those who follow other religions, if they persist in that until they die, that they are somehow going to be saved. punishment of Allah subhanahu wa taala.

00:17:46 --> 00:17:47

Some Muslims,

00:17:49 --> 00:17:51

they try to interpret

00:17:54 --> 00:17:56

Surah told Kathy rune that we mentioned earlier

00:17:59 --> 00:18:04

they tried to interpret this sutra, to mean religious pluralism.

00:18:05 --> 00:18:07

Because Allah says, Who would

00:18:08 --> 00:18:18

let him do it in to you is your religion to me as mine, therefore what this means is, all religions are valid.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:29

I follow Islam, you follow Christianity, you are an atheist, it's all okay. Because for me, my religion is mine, and yours is yours. But

00:18:31 --> 00:18:36

Allah subhanahu Attallah revealed this surah when he revealed it in Mecca,

00:18:37 --> 00:18:42

then the Prophet alayhi wa sallam, he made his Euro he migrated to Medina.

00:18:44 --> 00:18:53

And then after that, he came back to Mecca, conquering it, and then entering into the kava, and destroying the 360 idols that were in there.

00:18:55 --> 00:19:07

He didn't say, continue living upon your misguided aim to continue being a mushrik No, he destroyed their idols when he had the upper hand.

00:19:09 --> 00:19:16

And so, one of the dangers of having this mindset that many Muslims today do

00:19:17 --> 00:19:21

is that we take it easy when it comes

00:19:23 --> 00:19:25

to giving Dawa to normal selves.

00:19:28 --> 00:19:39

If we and them are the same in the sight of Allah subhana, who had to Anna, and we're all going to gender in the end, then what is the point of giving others Dawa?

00:19:42 --> 00:19:47

Giving Dawa was the mission of all of the prophets and the MBR of a recipient of who went to

00:19:48 --> 00:20:00

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his entire life was to preach the message to make sure that the message of Islam and the message of Allah reached every single he

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

Human beings

00:20:03 --> 00:20:08

My dear brothers and sisters, having said everything that I have said today

00:20:10 --> 00:20:13

we should not misunderstand any of this to mean

00:20:14 --> 00:20:23

that we are therefore calling for intolerance or discrimination or transgression but rather

00:20:24 --> 00:20:36

we say as Allah subhanahu Attallah says, layin hair qumola Who I need Latina lamb you party Luke. Dini, what am you free to come in the

00:20:37 --> 00:20:38

room home,

00:20:39 --> 00:20:42

Eli him in Allahu Akbar.

00:20:43 --> 00:20:51

Allah does not forbid you from dealing in a good way, and dealing fairly and with justice

00:20:52 --> 00:20:54

to those of the disbelievers

00:20:56 --> 00:20:58

who do not show you animosity,

00:20:59 --> 00:21:04

who do not fight against you, who have not expelled you from your home.

00:21:06 --> 00:21:12

And Allah truly loves those who are fear and just, but what we need to keep in mind

00:21:14 --> 00:21:26

is that our position and our stance, our belief, concerning all other ways of life, and those who follow all other ways of life besides Islam,

00:21:27 --> 00:21:31

is that every way and every dean out there

00:21:33 --> 00:21:40

is invalid in the sight of Allah. And whoever dies without accepting Islam,

00:21:41 --> 00:21:54

he is bound to perish eternally in the hellfire, but at the same time, the way we deal with them, and we treat them and we behave with them is the manner in which

00:21:55 --> 00:22:02

we have been taught by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. How there was always a limit Rahim Allah, Allah Allah,
