Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where Allah Allah He was happy he was was he was a reality.
For in Africa, Alhaji
Mohammed in Salalah alayhi wa sallam will shovel more data to have a coup d'etat in VEDA, Baku Middleton Delilah, Delilah and for now I
want to say that Assam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Dear brothers and sisters, as I mentioned to you, just before we get started,
a portion of the overall Dao program that has been developed by the Islamic teaching Institute,
this Dao program, we are developing it into a dour manual, a dour manual, which will be available soon on VHS, DVD, CD audio cassette and also a physical written manual. And it will be basically step by step for anybody to be able to follow We will also make it available through the website so that if people cannot come
to a session like this, they can basically plug in at certain times, and they can get this lesson via the website this is called long distance learning. It is a three part dow training session, which includes one the understanding the effect
of the Dow the understanding according to the Quran and the Sunnah, the fit of the Dow, and also the men hedge men has been in the methodology methodology according to the three generations of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, the generation of the prophets lost him the companions, the tablet, ainda Advaita, vain, and then that was just supported by the scholars of Islam.
our session today will be dour techniques, which is the third part of the program. I chose to do the Dow techniques in most cases, because
the effect of the Dow is something that you could read the men hedge of the Dow is something that you can read.
So, if you don't have or if I don't have, we don't have the ability to teach a 30 hour course which usually takes a week.
It takes a week. That is six hours a day for five days. If we don't have a week to spend somewhere, then we offer the Dow techniques because the Dow techniques cannot be learned by reading a book or listening to a cassette.
You can read all the books on dour, you can listen to all the lectures of the shakes.
You can read Shaykh Ahmed deedat look into his tapes and videotapes and Dr. Zakir Naik and all the premier people to do download, you can listen read, but you're not going to learn these techniques. And there are techniques
involved is not just something that they're just doing.
The dowel techniques normally would be
a 10 hour teaching session.
But as I mentioned to you, we're going to include in this
the management of doubt
why because not only should you learn the techniques,
but you should become a one man or one woman Tao organization, you should be able to go anywhere, we literally should be able to drop you anywhere
and tell you this is your station. And you should be able to set up a dour operation right there.
But the tools that you're going to need is called management tools. We're going to talk about those management tools at the end of the techniques probably sometime tomorrow.
We're going to begin by talking about the principles and characteristics of the day that you and I.
The day is the person doing the dour, the one who is receiving it is Demo Day.
The first principle and characteristics of dow is that the die
has to have knowledge.
Not just ambition,
not just emotional drive, and not just a reaction to some insult that somebody has said, and not just a feeling to want to give down, because you know, it's the obligation. All those things are good, and it's all necessary. But without knowledge, what are you gonna do?
without knowledge, you don't know much, and you can't do much.
Knowledge is like a candle
in the dark.
So if you got 20 people in a house,
and all the lights are off, and somebody yells fire,
nobody can see where nothing is that smoke is filling up the room. Women are screaming, kids are screaming, yelling no to where the Windows is that all of a sudden, somebody flicks on like,
what do you think everybody's eyes go to?
They don't care if you're white, you're black, you pour your green, whatever it is, they don't care. All the lights go to that is right or wrong. Because that's the person that can lead everybody out.
This is a facsimile of what knowledge is. Knowledge is the light is the candle for the person who is holding it. And it is also a light and a candle for those who have to follow it. So we have to begin with having basic knowledge. Now, what do we mean by knowledge, we mean knowledge concerning a law, we mean knowledge concerning the profits or loss and we mean not as concerning the basic tenets of Islam.
Because our Tao our dour is not about Christianity.
Our Tao is not about Harun Yahya has scientific breakdown of the atom.
Our knowledge is not about philosophy, our knowledge is not about history, our it could include those things, but what is the fundamental knowledge?
fundamental knowledge is my refer to law. My refer to NaVi so a lot of them my little Islam did
not leave the law,
understanding or knowledge or comprehension concerning the law, it is contained in the discipline called tell hade so that means when you want to talk about Allah subhanaw taala you cannot just talk about law any way you want to.
You must only talk about Allah subhanaw taala according to what rules
the rules of toe hate. You cannot talk about the profits or loss in any way you want to.
You must only talk about the profit or loss and according to the rules of reseller or Sunnah or sera
murrysville Islam will Atilla you cannot talk about Islam just in general. Are Islam means submission. Yes, it does mean that but what does this mean? How do we submit how do we surrender? What are the sources?
Bill? I didn't learn the hajah with proof and evidence. What are the proofs and evidence of Islam? What are the proofs and evidence of Islam? I'll call it an Watson.
Now this is when we say they must have correct knowledge. Now I didn't say you must have deep knowledge.
I didn't say that. Or sophisticated knowledge. I didn't say that or high knowledge no just fundamental knowledge of those three areas maarif the law modeling for the newbies a lot of stuff my original Islam with Adela
What do I do here now?
okay. They must understand the Islamic men hedge. That is the Islamic way.
The Islamic methodology.
The Islamic if you want to call it the cookbook
see all the knowledge of this lamb that we talked about previously. That's like the vegetables and the beef and and the potatoes and but you got to put it all together.
You got to heat up the oven. You got to break out the right pans. You got to have the right stuff that you're cooking what is right or wrong. That's called the men hedge. You got to know your way around the kitchen.
Otherwise you're gonna burn the food up. Are you gonna blow the kitchen up? There's so many things can happen. If you don't know the men hedge. We learned the men hatch from the three generations. Men hedge means how it was done, how it was understood how it was applied. How Men hedge
They must understand whom they are speaking to, is important.
You have to take the time to listen, to watch, look, understand, who is it you're speaking to.
Because if you just took a course, in comparative religion,
and you were studying all these verses of the Bible,
and you was getting yourself ready to talk to these Christians, and use Jehovah Witness, keep knocking on your door every day, you still can't wait for him to come back, I got something for him.
So he knocks on your door and you say, Come right in. And you begin talking to him, so and so and so and he says, What are you talking about? I don't even believe that.
Now, where do you go?
Because you didn't understand that he's not a mainstream Christian.
So those Christian dogmas, those evidences and proofs and ideas that you were learning doesn't even apply to him. So now what do you do you look like a fool.
You must understand who you're talking to. The other thing is,
you're going to find out that a greater amount of people are basically atheists.
They're born Christians, maybe are born Hindus are born Buddhists or whatever. But essentially, in their life, they are atheist.
They don't care one way or the other loans, they make $1 and they get along with people they cool. What is that?
They don't have a sense of religion that's either atheist or agnostic. Now, what do you do with a person like that? Or you meet a person who says Listen, man, I don't believe in God. I don't go to church I don't believe in no angels. No prophets, nothing. I don't believe no religion. Um, if there is a God, I'm God.
And I think that anybody said that's talking about God, they can't see. Magic profits and books and all that crazy stuff is really just crazy. Now prove to me this stuff that you're talking about. Now, see, shake. I'm a DJ, I didn't prepare you for that person.
Now, maybe Harun Yahya did,
But an atheist, or an agnostic person needs a completely different approach. So you got to know whom you're speaking to.
They must exhibit wisdom and tolerance. What did Allah subhanaw taala say? invite people to the way of Allah with what?
Know the first part of the ayah. Although LSB lira Big Bill hate man, while mo Ada tune has center.
Yes, the jarrahdale comes after
you must exhibit wisdom and tolerance. Wisdom means
always be dealing from here. Not from emotion, not from reaction. Don't let people push your buttons and let them take over. And then you become the reactionary they Javelin and you back it up and you duck it. No, don't let the people do that to you. Always you take the center of the court. You be in command of yourself. Laws you command in yourself. You don't have to worry about what the person is talking about. You just evaluating and never getting angry, and never becoming emotional, and never dealing from personality. Always dealing from a point of principle principle. Now that's not always easy because somebody might call you my slander the profits lost them a brother asked me what we do,
and somebody cursed the prophet shall not come out.
You can knock out everybody.
You can meet somebody that can knock you out.
And they don't matter. You get knocked out he get knocked out what happens? What have you accomplished?
You gave the wrong dollar, whether you get knocked out or the other person get knocked out. You gave the wrong dollar.
So you must exhibit wisdom.
The prophets lost him said the belief is what fear is. Is this the word for us? Anybody who has
what the word for us?
For us, does it mean you have
Yes. gerasa Yes, it means he's seen before.
happens. The believers like that. He looks deep into things he can see. In front of him. He looks into things he's intuitive, I think is the word
as part of wisdom
and tolerance means somebody can curse you out.
They can curse you out.
About the religion about Allah subhanho wa Taala, about the prophets, the lost them about your family, whatever, and you don't even change your composure.
You don't change your composure, because you got tolerance. And
you may have to talk to somebody that's gay. And then looking at you like you sweet.
But you got to talk to them as you, brother, can you tell me about his love?
That's a human being. Right? You got it is a human being this animal is more animals than it is the high part but it's still a human being. They also deserve dour.
Now later on, I'm gonna show you what position to take because there's a couple of things we do.
There's something here that you're going to see this interesting called the wheel of disposition, that tells you what position to take with the different people, but still as a human being, and if they asked you, you got to tell them
The Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam told her companions, that man that walked into prophets Masjid and went over and urinated in the masjid in front of everybody. The Companions wanted to beat him up with the prophet SAW Sam said do
go get some water and pour the water and then to let the man sit down this tolerance.
They must have strong arguments for tell heed what jack did humility here. Because our first argument is not about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
our first argument is not about this lamb.
Our first discussion with them is about a toe Hey.
You should have always in your pocket, or in your chest, or in your arsenal. 10 1520 nice arguments until he hit him with this one. Hit him low hit him high. Hit him from the left hit him from the right when he says this says that. Give him another one. Give him another I'll give my ad to courtesy. That'll handle about that'll handle about five different issues right there. Hit him. Hit him with coolala HUD. That's a powerful one right there. Hit him with hula hula De La La Hoya Alamo havy hit him with that one hit him with one or the other so rasuluh below that hit him with that one hit him with there's so many different is of tohei that you can hit them with
have strong arguments for tail heat because what do we call them to first
What did the Prophet sauce until more eyes in the Java when he was going to the people on live
you're going to some people who do not know about Allah. So the first thing you do is do what teach them about Allah
spend time talking to people only about a law forget about don't go into all this about Mohammed Salah this lamb and about Islam and you you're supposed to drink and this is her ROM and then you got people leaving you. They take you to the third floor.
And listen, what about the four four wives?
What about you guys can't eat shrimp?
What about you can't gamble. What am I consistent says random things over their faces and stuff like
which you have to do is you got to receive that and tell them to listen. That's a good that's a nice issue. But listen, there's something more fundamental than that.
Let's hold off on that. Let's Let's go down to this dotnet the start on the bottom where the tree grows grow from the root to the tree grow from the root. Start off with the branches. Is it no starts with root but that's what we want to start. Yes.
You're in control.
You're in control. You're not a jukebox. That's what I tell people. I am not a jukebox. Do you see a place where you put coins at
the jukebox? You put the coin in you press the buttons and the tune you want comes out. Is that wrong? Well, I'm not a jukebox. If you want an answer, and you want to know about Islam, there is a procedure. If you went to school, you might have some collegiate question, but if you didn't graduate in grade school, guess what
you got to go
Back to school.
So let's go
Okay, you must have strong arguments for tawheed you must be aware of the major religions.
Now major religions means Christianity,
Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Confucianism, Zoroastrianism,
Those are the major religions.
You must know about those major religions. Now there's branches that spun off of those religions,
Jainism and Western wisdoms guys from India to where the big terms and and stuff come down Sikhism. See, there's a whole lot of branches that came off of the major ones. But if you are basically aware, and I don't mean that you got to write a thesis on these different religions, because you don't
steak and steak and salad salad.
All you got to do is know be aware of the major religions so that when when you talk to a person, and they says, Well, I'm gonna see.
I always say what you're seeking.
No, they say, No, see?
I already know what it is he's talking about, but I'm just using a little humor, you know, I want to let him think let him think that I don't know. So the thing is, you must be aware of the major religions.
It's like a man told me in London. I told him, I said, you know anything about Muslims? muesli? He said, That's why if breakfast news, Lee, I didn't know I thought it was I thought he was I thought he was joking. I didn't know what newsleave was this a cereal, right? It's a muesli for breakfast.
They should be aware of the major concepts. Now you got religions and you got concepts. Now what a concepts concepts or allergies, and isms,
allergies and isms.
Now, when you deal with Christianity, let me tell you something right away. The first thing you need to know is that almost 95% of all Christians are really Christology. They don't know it.
Because only maybe 5% of them have really studied the life, the message, and the person of Jesus Christ.
And after studying the life, the message and the mission of Jesus Christ, Elisa Lam,
only a few of them decided to adopt the actual life message and mission of Jesus Christ. So the rest of them are, what their Christology is. They're following what had been created that that metaphor, that metaphor, that mythology that had been created around the name of Jesus Christ, and that's what they're doing. But you don't, don't call them cryptologist right away, because they'll be insulted. But that's what they are. You have to be aware of the major concepts and all of the major isms including the I Am the I ism, the me ism.
See, most people are just me ism, de ism. So their religion is her lamb,
his lamb. We lamb, the lamb.
Just like we fall in Islam, they fall into a lamb, her lamb, his lamb. So it's allergies and isms. And there are names to most of them that we're going to go through.
They should be clean in their appearance. This is very important brothers and sisters.
The Way You Look,
the way you look. Now, I'm not saying you got to dress in it. I'm not saying you got dressed like the brothers with farrakhan with a bow tie and all that I'm not saying you got to do that.
But I'm saying that you have to determine for yourself.
Every Muslim should determine generally, how they dress.
Now, I'm not saying that you have to have a special dour uniform, or you got to have a special type of dress, but generally, the Muslim should determine for themselves, do I want to dress like Kaffirs? Or do I want to generally dress like a Muslim? You got to ask that for yourself. Now, if you don't really want to be known as a Muslim, all you got to do is get all the designer stuff and put all that on. And nobody will ever know that you're Muslim, especially if you don't act like it.
But if you really want to give Dawa, you should there should be something about you
that when somebody looks at you, you distinguish yourself
As a Muslim,
your clothes should be clean. If you're wearing jeans,
there's no harm in putting little spray starch and run iron over. No harm. And that brothers, you don't have to look like you just jumped out of a Washington drive.
Just because you're a student, you know, you throw the stuff in the dryer and just throw it on and run out. Well, that's all right, but not for dollar. Because most people in the working world, they do not walk out into the street with clothes, they just pull off the dryer and put it on. Is that right or wrong?
No, I don't say you have to. But I'm only saying to you that in many cases, people are going to judge what you got to say by what? The way you look.
For instance, if you went to a dentist
and he was out in the waiting room and you start hearing all this hammering
and people screaming
you Thank you How long would you sit there to wait for that dentist to come out to give you a root canal
if you went to a doctor and he was out in the waiting room, the the waiting room is dirty. And then the doctor he comes out he comes and says okay, you're next Mr. So and so. And he's got our apron on with blood and he got a machete in his hand.
Well, of course you say that will shake I mean, you given too much. So as a graphic, ridiculous example. Well, there are some Muslims who are given down and you step back and look at the scene is the same thing.
A student invites another student in their room to give them down.
And they have an empty the trash in two weeks.
They have made up their bed since they started school.
They got clothes under the bed over the bed around over there. They got bottles, cans and chips and take away trays all over the room. And when it comes to size, it was stupid for men, I'm gonna get this book for you.
Now, what example Do you think that sets
the wrong example
today should organize themselves and spend some time
organize your room at home. Organize your clothes.
Organize the area where you want to give dour, think to yourself on the campus. If you're on the campus, think of a room in the campus that's your room, and then got to not be your room. It's just a special room on campus that's open for everybody. But when you want to talk to my boss and say listen,
you got 20 minutes? Yeah, can I get a little room over here? It's nice. It's quiet and it's already set up. You might put little posters in there. No setup. So when they sit down is like a doctor's office, isn't it? You see the difference? It's on your terms now.
They should have honorable sauce of their livelihood. brother or sister if you are engaged, or your family is engaged in haraam business.
Please don't take nobody to your business and give it to them. And please don't let nobody know.
Because if you're engaged in dishonorable haraam, livelihood, or if you're engaged and fascia are munkar, immoral things in the day or the night,
then you're giving dollars sort of hypocritical, isn't it?
a non Muslim will pick that up.
Maybe not today, but tomorrow or the next day and they're gonna say to somebody else,
can you believe it?
This guy gave me some pamphlets to read about Islam and said that they don't drink. They don't list it on that. I mean, his father got a star on that.
Do you think that person's got what do you think that person's gonna think about Islam and Muslims in general?
That they're two faced. So we should be the way we live, how we earn our living should be consistent, reasonably consistent with the data that we're offering.
They must have a willingness to cooperate and a willingness to support others in the world. This is called Taiwan. What Allah so Allah subhanaw taala says, watch I want to Allah
wala tavano Allah Islam, while
he says also water wise. So this summary water law so Bill Maher ohana, water Wassall bill
Hot tea, water was sell the solder to us. And Taiwan is the nature of this work. You can't do this down by yourself.
And I'm also want to tell you brothers and sisters, also sisters,
when you give down, if you go to someplace where other women are at their homes or whatever, always take another system with you.
If you invite someone to your home a woman, try to have another sister with you, your mother, your blood sister or another sister. Why?
one out of every five women in the Western world
is a straight out lesbian.
two out of every five women in the Western world have experimented with lesbianism
and three out of five, they don't mind they don't care.
Now sisters, I'm telling you this, take it from your brother, take it from experience. You always got to be careful. And some women come into Islam
because it's like the fox being inside the chicken house.
Now just think about what I just said.
Now Allah mentioned in the Quran,
that if you find some woman guilty of indecency, then you say that in the Quran, if you find a woman did guilty of indecency, he didn't say fornication. He didn't say adultery. He said in decency, what is meant there
because it was understood in the time of the profit loss and that there was some practices like that. And if you find some men engaging in decency,
so indecency is not fornication and adultery here. This is an indecent immorality that is other than fornication and adultery.
So the careful and you're giving dour, that where you go and who you bring. try always to make support with other people because what you don't see another person will see and you can always protect yourself by the witnessing of another person.
Also, there are resources that you need,
that you cannot obtain by yourself 11 they should show reliance upon a law you must have to walk
Show reliance upon loss upon Allah to Allah.
Don't worry about nobody, how intelligent that they are, how clever they are, how eloquent that they are, how arrogant they are, be willing to listen to what they have to say.
And also be willing to say to yourself what to say to them. Listen, after after listening to what you have to say.
What I really like to do is
I like to give thought to what you had to say it you made some good points. I want to give thought to it and let's meet tomorrow inshallah.
Because what happened, you're not really prepared to what they had to say.
Or be prepared to tell somebody.
I can't answer that question for you. But I know somebody who can.
But always show your composure and your willingness to talk to anybody. Because why?
You put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala from the very beginning, the Messenger of Allah was awesome. He didn't have all the answers. But he put his trust upon law a law says to him for turaco Allah in quantum
be ready to face a challenge this called sobor. Other other fee.
If you've said you want to give down, don't think that all Tao is gonna be licking lollipops.
Don't think it's all gonna be sweet. Don't think it's gonna be you sitting down doing some like intellectual debating. You may find yourself in a situation
where you're facing a physical challenge, intellectual challenge, a spiritual challenge.
identified identify your challenging obstacles. Now what does this mean? Don't overestimate and don't underestimate never.
estimate who you're going to talk to. Don't puff your chest up. Don't fill your came out, but don't think inseminate you know what you doing, you read these books, you took that cost from the shape. You read these books and pamphlets, you did this course you got four or $5 certificates. And you know, you know what you're getting ready to go do. Let's go blast these Christians out.
Don't underestimate. At the same token,
Don't listen to this radio personality, or this professor, or whoever it is. And they seem like they so powerful, and they're so crisp and clear and eloquent. And they just come and downhill on everybody. And you don't know what to say.
I don't know what to do. Shake, shake, please come talk.
Keep your composure because every there's a shoe to fit everybody.
There's a time. And there's a place. And there's a proof. And there's an evidence.
Learn to disarm your opponent.
How many people here is in most knows martial arts.
If a person has a weapon in their hand,
sometimes it might be better to be able to run faster than they can
say you don't want to try to be no Bruce Lee or gently
you know, because you saw those moves because it may not happen that way.
You should be in good condition.
So if you cannot disarm this person,
at least you can stay out of home.
So learn to stay out of home or to disarm. Now this arming the person is is itself a technique we're gonna learn some of those techniques later on. But this arming means take the air out of their
It seems like in boxing
if I see the man is not in good shape. The first day for me to do is
dance around four minute drop down, hit him straight in the solar plexus. blast him good. Knock all that out. Because that's where the power is that right there.
And usually, if you hit them good in the solar plexus, that's it the fight is over.
It's another place you want to you can kick them to the sisters know about that.
And usually the fight is over. Or
give him I give him a cut on give him something that's almost like mustard gas or pepper spray.
back him up.
learn different things that you can use for arrogant people who are clever people how you can disarm them.
Allah says, use direct and convincing arguments kulu colons, neither
speak direct, be honest, look straight at them.
And you don't have to be clever. Just be straightforward, be honest. be simple.
Use common sense.
Reinforce the generally agreed upon principles. What does that mean? That means when you talk to somebody, there's no sense arguing with them about something both of you agree with?
Did you ever begin talking to somebody?
And you find out that there's not really that much to argue about?
Because you're talking to them? And they're shaking their head say, Yeah, I agree with that. But just you know, they're Christian.
And so you you keep on saying different things, because they can't just be believing in everything. You're saying. They gotta disagree with something you want to argue?
No, if there's no argument, don't try to find one.
And if you relate a proposition to them, or explain something that they didn't understand or something that they miss understood, don't keep hammering away at the same thing.
Whatever is agreed upon, let them know that's good. At least we agreed upon that. Let's go to the next point.
So in the course of the conversation, you might have had five points and you agreed upon two or three. Is that good enough? That's good enough for one day. dumpster Listen, we agreed upon two or three good points. I think we had a good conversation. I think we accomplished quite a bit and we can agree upon everything but we're gonna disagree for the day on those points honorably. Okay. See you tomorrow.
You leave that person in a dignified way.
Islamic principles, what does that mean?
While you and another person that talking, they're giving you their principles,
what you want to do is always in your conversation, you may not use Islamic terms, but you want to do what you want to distinguish the Islamic principles.
Later on, we're going to talk about how to do that, how to talk to an atheist, without using any religious terminology at all.
You can get an atheist to agree about the autocannon Islam and the autocannon. Eman without using any religious terminologies at all, not even the word God.
You probably say, Well, how do you do that?
We're gonna see a little bit later on.
Obtain consensus upon those principles. That means when you use Islamic principles, when you're talking to somebody about Islamic principles, what do you want to do?
Starting with kalimat law in the law.
And Muhammad Rasulullah lost him and then going down, beginning with the autocannon, Islam, men to Billa women are eager to beginning with those principles. We want to do what? go one by one and use different ways to get them to do what agree.
Now you already agree. So if you get them to agree with we have
Make your case and complete the invitation. See, make your case and complete the invitation. How many people here has done sales?
What's the bottom line of sales?
And at the end of the How do you what's the bottom line? I mean, if I'm your sales manager, I don't want to hear about how many people you went to meet. I don't want to hear about how good you talk. I don't want to hear about your presentations. What's the bottom line from the sales manager? Selling? I want to know how many how many deals Did you sign and close? Is that right?
So don't forget and give me $1 to make your case and complete the invitation. Now you don't necessarily complete the invitation today. Some customers you have to learn to work on them for about a month. Is that right brother?
Yours, especially if you're selling houses
illustrate the signs of a loss through science. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, In the few helpless my wife,
lady had the idea to say that Allah subhanaw taala SQL Shamsi was to have one Comrie that Allah, Allah subhanaw taala. Throughout the Quran, Allah is saying to us, he's swearing Well, after what?
What is he doing here? He's giving us propositions, scientific propositions, environmental propositions, by virtue To do what? To emphasize in our minds, that he is alcoholic. You see, we have to do the same thing.
If you want to talk to an atheist, and agnostic, a person that says they don't believe in God, somebody that says they are Scientologists, or something of that nature, the way you want to talk to them is do not use the word God.
Use another attribute allows them harder, isn't it? Hmm. He's the source of all creationism. So you use a different attribute for them. You don't say Allah.
You say the source of all creation,
the source of all power, the source of existence.
I mean, we all exist in they had to be a source. If they agreed to that good, you can start right there.
So illustrate the signs of a loss of power to Allah through science. Now, we're not scientists.
And we're not trying to prove anything through science. Not Absolutely. We're only making references to science.
And that's why the other night when I was given a lecture and somebody said that we can prove to people that Allah if somebody said that who created a law, that there's a way to prove that no, there is no way to prove that.
There is no way to prove that. However, there are some approaches that we can use to answer that question, but I say to you, be careful.
That's a tricky question. That's a dangerous endeavor. That's like a mind
And you can step on the mind and blow it up right in your face. If you're talking with somebody who's really tricky and clever,
he can have you
saying something about a loss upon without that you have no right to say.
Because our job is not to prove any absolutes. Somebody has to prove to me that God exists. And so you start talking about our
Because our job is not to prove that a law exists, is it?
That's not our job to prove that law exists. Our job is to make references to the human beings, a law says you have to * around Disney, for those who reflect
show the consistency of the previous scriptures, the prophets and the messages. Now, what does this mean? The court has basically three messages, what are they? Who knows the three things of the Quran?
It doesn't matter what page you turn to.
Doesn't matter what story doesn't matter what page what example, the Quran basically has three themes.
Now, yeah, what gender is gender is part of one of the themes. Yes.
tohei is the first one.
No, that's that's that righteousness leads to one of them. Yes.
No, that that that is to lead to another one. Yes. That's Akira is one. See tohei
ashira and Casa su ambia. These are the three themes. The three themes of the Quran
tohei, casa, Solomon, I'm via an app here, all the things all the laws in the Quran for what to help us to do what
to get towards the app
allows me to build my rufina Haldeman card to do what to help pave the way towards
the laws that allowed us to do what to pave the way towards
the castle MBs to do what to tell us the challenges in life that you're going to meet that the prophets they dealt with. That's what the MBA is about, teach you different kind of human beings challenges that you're going to meet. And the other things the law is talking about why it might
happen, women who yakun What is that for?
That's to reinforce, to hate.
While lately there was summer party, all these are and as a matter of fact, if you read me at the saloon, that the last use of the Quran and the 29th use of the Quran, those two Jews last two Jews, basically to do what to reinforce to hate.
And those were the soldiers that were first revealed in Mecca, most of the soldiers antibiotic and in and Jews and Jews ama or what
Is that correct? Why because they reinforce to hate. Those are the soldiers we want to use and talking to people about Islam initially.
point out the principles of human behavior, human civilization and historical evidence. Now we come in from toe he Castle ambiga Allah Hara now we're coming into what we call micro examples. That's examples of what about the human being themselves. Human nature, human psychology,
human behavior, human civilization, historical evidence. All these are things that we can use along with tohei position ambia and Akira.
Okay, brothers and sisters,
women atmosphere here with a little bit dark, and now had no popcorn for you.
Now if you get a little sleepy, then what you need to do is just raise your hand, go to the water to get a quick low buddhu come back and get to see otherwise what's gonna happen is you can't miss 20 minutes with this movie.
Now you're gonna get the disk and all that, but you're not you're gonna have to meet new potatoes. See, this is the meat and potatoes. That's the meat and potatoes right there.
I'm gonna give you this with the same thing on it. But what I'm giving you is the gravy.
And you can't swallow the meat and potatoes without the gravy.
So if you get tired, raise your hand and go make the
show the fallacy of certain concepts and beliefs and conversely, show the Islamic and there's something missing here, I'll have to add it in there, show the Islamic proposition, that's what that word should say, show the fallacy of certain concepts and beliefs and conversely, show the Islamic proposition.
So when certain people, you're talking to certain people, and they give you the concept, they give you their belief,
they give you the concept of a belief, or you already targeted, you understood it already, what you have to do is, you got to show the fallacy of that belief showed a weakness of it, show the foolishness of it, show the futility of it.
And then after that, show the other side, don't tell somebody something is wrong, and you can't tell them what's right. Don't tell somebody something is not good.
Something is wrong, you can't show them what's right. You can't tell somebody to stop doing something without giving them what an alternative.
Don't talk about a problem they have, but you can't offer them the solution.
This is what we want to learn to do.
Provide the Islamic answer. And the alternative to those fallacies.
Now the Islamic answer or the Islamic alternative, we can use another word, the Islamic proposition.
Brothers and sisters, this word proposition that I'm giving you is a key word. Don't forget it.
Another way of saying to a person, think of it, I want to give you a proposition in your conversation always say to a person.
Think about this.
Yeah, reflect on that. Consider this.
See, consider this. Think about this. Let me give you this proposition. Suppose we suppose we think about this for a moment. How about this? So now you're not talking in a in a tone of what absolute? You're not talking like? Either all people don't like that. Oh, so that means everything you say is right or wrong.
So that means if I don't believe like what you believe that mean, I'm wrong. Is that when people tell you right? So I'm a Muslim? Are everything Muslim says right? Nobody has the wrong as everybody else in the world is wrong?
No, no, chumps, no. All I'm trying to do is offer you out the perspective of the Quran.
It is the Islamic perspective. But it's only a proposition for you to consider. It's not that everybody's wrong, or everybody's right. There's a whole lot in between. But this is a proposition that you should maybe consider. For us. It's an Islamic answer for us as an Islamic alternative. In some cases, for us, it's a fulcrum, a determination a law.
For us, it's a fact that you can't put it to other people that way.
Learn to use what I call.
Okay, have we completed an hour here already? Have Wi
Fi moments? Okay, we're gonna go for more ministry strategies, and the techniques of dour. Now as a matter of fact, what we'll do here is we will not go further. What I'll do is almost I'll stop here for a moment.
Before we go into preparation, strategies, techniques of dowel I'll stop here. And I'll take a few questions, just two or three questions. But everything I said is sort of like
I mean, it's planes like the leaves on the tree.
I could have said it a little differently and in the course of our
company compensation hearing again, you you will I will. But if there was something you didn't understand,
then you can ask me but if it's just another way of saying something or something you want to add hold up to that right now the hot dogs only no mustard.
When they say that, basically, truth doesn't exist. And the truth is always relative and there's no absolute truth.
Okay, I've got a book back there. I got a book back there on the table back there called arguments with atheists, arguments about the doubters of the
arguments, rational arguments, but shake alley to me, me. I've got a couple of nice books back there that gives you some of those techniques right there for me. I've got several techniques. You know, I like to talk with atheists who want to come with these kind of, I would ask them, I reverse it. You say what's the question again?
Truth is absolute. Truth exists. Okay, so So, if truth exists or doesn't exist, what is truth?
As my as my question back to them, if it exists or doesn't exist, what's the basis
Another question, the quest for a question to come it must exist.
Otherwise none the question about
oh, that's different. Truth is an absolute fact that is undeniable for the person who holds it. That's a different argument. Now, that's easy.
I tell a person, I'll tell you what truth is. Fear is truth. They said, What do you mean by that, go to the top of a building and look down.
Every human being and even an animal, when they go to a height and look down the back up. That's true. It's instinctive, but it's truth.
So there's a lot of different ways to approach somebody who's trying to be clever. But if it's a person who's really trying to understand there's a way to bring it all back, then there's a way even that we can use the court and to substantiate a scientific way of talking to a person, we'll learn some of those techniques to Now, some of what some of what you want to know, I'm not gonna say it all here, because I can't.
I got about 30 books on the table over there. This course really has about 65 different books, that I would recommend people to read books that I use for myself to understand different people's approaches. I don't say you got to read all those books or read ones that I read, but I can tell you this. If you don't read, you're not going to expand your knowledge. But if you do read a lot of the questions that you may have today are going to be answered because other people are the Muslims have been already been approached. In these ways. There's nothing new under the sun. There is nothing new. There's nothing new on the earth at all. Anything overproduces has been producing
no new answers and no new questions. All people is doing the shaking and baking Yes, and putting something new spice on it, making it seem like it's new. McDonald's money all the time has always been trashing dog food.
all they're doing is taking dog food.
Worse than dog food, they're using marketing, advertisement, recycling, and and other kinds of techniques. And letting people know that just to belong to the McDonald family itself is to belong to something people's go to McDonald's is to belong to something.
That's another compensation. But I'm talking about the McDonald age I'm gonna talk to you about the McDonald age is selling people in idea. So once you sell the idea, they take everything that go with it, who you think sell the most toys in the world? Who you think is the top toy selling in the world?
Who do you think? No, it's not. It's McDonald's.
Who is that thing selling most cookies in the world?
People think of McDonald's is a burger, the fries and a shake. McDonald's is the top seller of 37 products in the world because once you join the McDonald family and you get that McDonald's mentality you're gonna buy everything McDonald's say
and they should put a Mac clinic next to every McDonald hospital
in America Yes.
Islam Islamic teachings to basically does two things. We take new Muslims and emerging Muslims now most of you here are emerging Muslims,
emerging Muslims or people who are emerging into Islamic consciousness and Islamic work.
Out of that static it's not that that static Muslim mentality, you know, that static Muslim mentality that emerging into Islamic consciousness and Islamic revival and Islamic Dawa, the emerging Muslims. Now the new Muslims are people like myself, whose mothers and fathers and sisters and brothers and all that there, we didn't know nothing about Islam, and we accepted Islam or embraced Islam and reverted to Islam, whatever you want to call it was it was yesterday, or 35 years ago. Now the new Muslims and emerging Muslims almost have the same needs.
First of all, they need to know Islam. Is that correct?
So Islamic teaching Institute has designed an Islamic teaching course, especially for new and emerging Muslims. And I teach it just like I'm teaching this course.
I got a set of books and a syllabus
and a set of tools that I'm using to teach it. And so in 30 hours, I can take a new Muslim brand new Muslim
After 30 hours, they got basically the tools that they need not they're not gonna learn it in 30 hours, but they got the tools.
Now, don't you think that it's important for a new Muslim to get the tools,
then it is also important for an emerging Muslim to step back, like musar, les slim, did you know when he when Musab was looking? And he got to and he got to the place where the two rivers potted him and his companion, and the fish jumped in the water. What was that assigned for moose up?
To go back? Right? He knew he had to meet Heather, and go back and meet them. So you and I, we look in for ourselves, we're looking for the right way, sometimes you got to go back. I say all of you. Some of you, brothers and sisters are sitting here have basically covered most of the basics, as good. But you should go back and review it. Those of you who have not go back and complete it.
It won't hurt you. The Islamic teaching has to teach us an Islamic course, Islamic teaching course for new and emerging Muslims. That's what it does. Second thing, it teaches dour training
for Muslims, individuals and organizations. This data, of course that I'm doing now is for individuals in this case. But I do this also for organizations. So an organization calls me because they don't have $1 package. They don't have nobody that does dour. So what I do is I go to an organization, and I take five of their people, and I give them $1 training course, including management so that when I leave, they got the tools, they got the kit, they got the training, they got the management, and then they can plug back and forth with myself or some Austin somebody to do what
education consultant. So that's what we do for the most part. In addition to that we are now going into the field of media, we've just been licensed for satellite television station. And the reason we got involved in it not because we had money, or that we could, we saw ourselves being able to do that. But I saw that
I couldn't duplicate myself. It's impossible for me to be almost impossible,
impossible for me to be in five or six places at one time.
And I would like to be I'd like to be right here and in Sheffield and America and in France, and also in Saudi Arabia teaching the same course. And I got people as calling right now. But I can't be. So what I want to do, I want to duplicate myself.
And I also want to duplicate the materials. So by duplicating myself and duplicating the materials, what do we do?
You can spread it.
That's the phenomena of this Dean. So to do this, we thought that this is a this is a field of media.
duplication, reproduction, broadcasting. So by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala, we went ahead to get this license. Another thing that we wanted to do, we wanted to find somebody that had a studio
in different places so that we could replicate materials, reproduce materials, produce materials, Mashallah hummed it up the last sentence down here and brothers in engagement. So these are the things that we do. And then in addition to that we do to Ireland, with organizations in this particular field to improve ourselves and do better. The issue of managing or offering Islamic services is just something that every organization does global Islamic Youth Center is not set up here for five prayers a day that wasn't set up for right. That's something that Muslim got to do anyway, it wasn't set up he'll do Juma. But if you got 500 people coming through here, it don't make
sense for them to send someone go somewhere else does it. So Joomla and salaah, and a library and other things that we do, it just goes along with the package but basically, we're engaged in Islamic teaching and preaching and our training and and field of media inshallah, the other thing is, whatever we are not able to get to a person through the satellite, DVD
VCD, CD, audio, cassette, VHS
or internet. That's all media.
And we're going to do it all straight across the board. And we're going to concentrate on dour and education. This is what we want to do. We want to concentrate on dour and education and the law lets us have a law let this brother open up the studio he's talking about doing and a lot of lets us have this television station and then we do some other things that we're talking about doing. His thing is gonna go inshallah, we're gonna have an alternative. We're gonna do something. The next thing
We want to train brothers and sisters to give this down, because if they do, and shot law, can you think
if there were
20 people that understood that 20 people that completed the third level of this program, or the third level of anybody's program in Australia, 20 in the UK, 20 in America 20 and apart another part of Europe, 20 in Asia, just 20 we didn't say 100 people just 20 and those 20 people themselves, they taught 100 people a year, how many people is that?
2000 they taught 100 people a year, how many people in this room here?
in the course of a year, generally speaking, like last year, last year, I did about 2800 and some odd students.
That completed at least the first level.
I did about 480 something students that completed the second level.
And I've only had 17 students that was able to complete the third level.
Because third level is not a joke. It takes a little bit more time, because it's a research level. But the whole thing is getting them to complete that first level, because the first level now they can go out and at least they got the tools to do this download. This the whole This is the issue. And I also want to de personalize it is not really, let's not to call it yacine package. It's not what it is.
And really, I'm thinking seriously, just take the name of it is not to call it yes even package in Sharla. I'm just initiating it. That's all I'm doing. After a while, it won't even matter who initiated it. It's just like,
it's like the television. If you ask somebody who set up the telephone with the first person set up television, does anybody here know?
average person doesn't know and doesn't matter?
The fact is that it's a powerful instrument that people are using all over the world. We want this to be an instrument. And if it already existed, I would not be doing it. I would simply take what was already existed and use it. Does anybody here ever seen $1 manual or manual of
that is audio visual.
Give you the step by step.
the fit the background? And also the techniques? Anybody see one?
Any bookstores anywhere? No. The other thing is that we want to take it from this level, to a much higher level where it becomes professional, that anybody in the world will not mind to take it. This is not really a good PowerPoint presentation. I mean, it's a PowerPoint presentation that, you know, I did it. And I really don't know that much about PowerPoint. Be honest with you. I mean, the brother who sent me up here can tell you that.
But I was giving this course for like two years without a PowerPoint presentation. Can you imagine that?
And I ran into a young brother about 15 years old in Jubail. He said to me shake. Did you ever hear PowerPoint?
I said, Yeah, I heard of it. I think I got that on my computer
is a shape. You should you should put your presentation in a PowerPoint, it will be much easier for you and other people can see it better. So I said well,
I gave him my notes. I said Well, let me see what it looks like. And that young brother did a PowerPoint presentation for me in two days. I was shocked. I said I look how foolish if I feel two years, maybe three years I was doing this a PowerPoint presentation on a on a on a what you call it board with the colors on a white board. Not a white board but a white board.
Yeah, I was doing it on a on a whiteboard.
And I made a board like that one over there. You know, I used to divide the board and be dancing around in different colors and everything and you know look good, but hum de la I could sit in this chair here that young brother got some blessings. So Panama. Now we want to take it from here and make it into interactive.
Interactive, where all the notes that we're talking about when I say the Bible, boom, the Bible opens up and I got the software right dead King James Version desmosomes. And so if I said he said Zoroastrianism boom. What that book is, boom, hit it opens right
upon you. That's what we really want to do. And we're going to do that with my brother here in Sharla. But we got to start somewhere brothers and sisters, and this is where we are right now. So I just want to let you know this. This is really raw. It's not that sophisticated. It's just that the information is a lot of information that goes into it. And I love to do it. This is what I love to do.
Okay, so I think we can take a break here brother, and we can perform our salon. And then right after the salon brothers and sisters, we will come back and shout out to where we left off at Japonica along with the Hyundai Kona Chateau in La La Land. One istockphoto kona to blue lake.
