Salam Alaikum

00:00:23 --> 00:00:32

Bismillah was Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Salam o I feel horrible. It says please do not touch the mics and that was the first thing I did

00:00:33 --> 00:00:34

when we put it back

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

with the topic of this afternoon regarding the trust of Islam

00:00:43 --> 00:01:11

and when we read the description of the topic, it's regarding Dawa and being proud as a Muslim and how to convey it to others and inshallah the way I will be delivering it by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala is through five tips regarding Dawa and handling this magnificent heavy load of trust Allah has given all of us here in this room inshallah. So, are you guys ready in sha Allah, say inshallah. Inshallah. Number one,

00:01:13 --> 00:01:17

you have to believe that conveying the message of Islam is your job.

00:01:18 --> 00:01:38

Also Allah allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the little one knee well, he says convey about me even if it's one verse one Hadith one statement, tell people about it. Go tell the one that you saw making such the frustration how is the camera Okay perfect. The one who was making setup like this, is that right or wrong?

00:01:39 --> 00:01:40

Wrong How is the right way?

00:01:41 --> 00:02:11

Yes, you should not make this touch the ground if you're making says that. Correct. So if you see someone doing that, and you know for a fact that you learned in Sunday School at the Halacha and the masjid your parents they told you, and you know this is the right way to go this way you should tell them the little one Nivola wire. So we got that task in sha Allah with upmost respect as we add more tips to be in your life subhanho wa taala. The second matter regarding handling this man and giving Dawa to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:02:12 --> 00:02:56

is to realize when you do that, it will help you out one more time. When I advise people to become more practicing when I advise people to correct their actions I become a better person. Just like how we learn if you want to master something, what do you do you teach it one more time if you master something you teach, so if you want to master something you teach it and that's how Allah subhanaw taala made us. For example, rasool Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Have mercy on those on earth, that Allah will have mercy upon you. Allah says forgive others, then Allah says He will forgive you, Allahu Akbar. So when I helped someone, I ended up helping my own self. And

00:02:56 --> 00:03:44

also Allah Sal, Allahu Allah, he was a minister, give me an example. He said the example of the one who fulfills the commands of Allah. And the one who does not, is like a group of people divided into two going onto a ship, one group goes to the top, the ones that know the right from the wrong pretty much. And then the ones who go in the bottom does not know much. So when they go to the bottom, anytime they want water, they go to the upper deck, to throw the bucket, get the water and use it. At one point the people in the lower level of that ship. They said we don't want to disturb the ones on the top. We don't want to irritate them, you know, to give them some peace. So how about we drill

00:03:44 --> 00:04:03

a hole into the lower level of the boat? Can you imagine that drill a hole what's going to happen to the ship? It's gonna sink. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says, if the ones on the top pay attention, if the ones on the top do not stop, the ones in the lower level, they will all drown

00:04:04 --> 00:04:48

and if they stop them from drilling the hole and they assist them, they will all be saved. So therefore when you tell the guy to make sense, then go this way. It's not just his Salah becomes better. Our gym as a whole becomes better. This person now teaches his children who is your children's classmates. You see how it's a full circle Subhanallah not just that even under the second tip is to motivated to give Dawa is how you will benefit even from edger Hassan at Weiss Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam every time you hear that name, say what sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says manda Illa Houda whoever calls people to guidance to the truth, and that person

00:04:48 --> 00:04:59

ends up doing it you the caller, you get the reward for their actions, and their actions will not be reduced and reward for them. Allahu Akbar, how many of us in this room without even the need of raising hands?

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

You all would many of us would love to have passive income, right? You want to sleep, you have income coming in, you want to go on a vacation and you get that deposit in your account because some rental property that you have you love passive income, it's just so beautiful. But to get it you have to put a lot of effort. Similarly, you want passive has an ad. Passive has an ad income. So you do this work, you write this article, you do this video, you upload it, you share it, you advise and every time while you're sleeping, you're eating, you're vacationing, you're getting snacks wine because of that person you advise at the workplace, Allahu Akbar. So don't just think of dunya but

00:05:36 --> 00:05:37

also think of the dean and

00:05:38 --> 00:06:20

lastly, under the second tip about how this motivates the there'll be benefit for you, is that if you really want to physically look beautiful, it's an hour or understand how can that even make sense? This is like a halal makeup tutorial. Alright, but also Allah is Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says not dar Allahu Imran authentic narration he makes you out Yeah, Allah make the one so beautiful in the eyes of the to make him so beautiful. Who is it yet? Also Allah, men semi I mean the Hadith and Fabella hakama Samia, the one who hears from us a statement and he conveys it the way he heard it, Allahu Akbar. So when you narrate the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:06:20 --> 00:06:59

said this, you will look better, Allah Allah to Allah one, two and three, you will look better so Subhana Allah we think may Allah make protect us era Bill Allah mean that there is no no behind this stuff sometimes Right? Like, oh, being religious, doesn't mean I take care of my physical features and so on and so forth. No and not just you should even doubt itself. That's the reward of giving Dawa Allahu Akbar, may Allah protect us era by Allah mean and make us beautiful, inside and outside. So number one, what was it is our job to convey? Even if it's one verse number two, remember the reward that you get when you call people to Allah? Number three, make your Dawa convey this man or

00:06:59 --> 00:07:12

this trust within your capabilities. The call of giving Dawa does not mean you come to this main stage. It doesn't mean that you have to give Friday hotbars it's much more than that. Just if you noticed

00:07:13 --> 00:07:51

the session was slightly postponed. Did you notice a little bit was delayed? What was the issue was a mic issue? Do you think I fixed it? No way. There was some group of wonderful people in the back may Allah bless them they fixed it. Someone who else had to put this projector someone is now recording us. May Allah grant him that which is best. Someone right now if he has don't see it, I can see there's a timer I have 12 minutes 47 seconds left. So it's what what am I trying to say we all have a job to do. So we all complement each other and don't limit down just to public speaking, it's a lot bigger than this. Every single one of you here young and old male and female, just

00:07:51 --> 00:08:11

recently been practicing or for the longest time every one of you is gifted. You have to truly believe in that. I'm telling you, I am gifted and you're gifted and all of us give our gifted. But what many of us have not yet done is unwrap the gift. You're special about something? May Allah Allah wants to know what we're best at say I mean

00:08:12 --> 00:08:53

Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when it comes to conveying in the best of abilities, the people get inspired by him. And I'll share with you one story. There was a German boxer champion during his time, in which he was invited to Riyadh Saudi Arabia to be honored for his achievements. That was many, many years ago, more than 20 years ago. And then he came to Riyadh, they honored him gave him a prize and everything like that. And there was a sister in the gathering. She was in a coffee sister and she really wanted to see can we give him Dawa? Like, this guy is so influential, she noticed perhaps, and no one has really been very much involved here capacity and capability at

00:08:53 --> 00:09:37

that time was to do what? Give him a Quran translated into German language. So she said, here we go, sir. This is a Quran translated into your language. He took that book, who's the narrator of the story, the boxer, but let me tell you when he says, I went back to Germany. 20 years later, I was cleaning my library. And then as I was cleaning all the books, I don't want this I need this. I came across the book. And I remember this was given to me by some Muslim lady in Riyadh, in Saudi Arabia, that didn't say much except give me this book. So I said, you know, after he retired, oh, god the Quran, and start reading and start hitting his heart starting to read and start to get impacted

00:09:37 --> 00:09:59

start to read. I start to get convinced until he went to the Islamic center in his city in Germany. And he asked how can I become Muslim? And he accepted Islam. What did he do the next day? Next day, he sets up a table in one of the busiest spots in his city. What did he have on the table? He had pamphlets. He had books he had matters

00:10:00 --> 00:10:42

Have the deen to tell people about La ilaha illallah so whoever sees him all what they want is a selfie. True story. Oh, can I have a picture with you? He's like, Yeah, sure about on your way out. Please take this with you. Take this with you take this with you in one year, how many people accepted Islam 104 104 People accepted Islam. From that brother. All of that reward is in whose scale that sister 20 years are going to react. Allahu Akbar. So you never know that see that you drop how much fruit it will bring about. So number three, you go within your capabilities. You're a physician, you have an office, you have a waiting room. Bismillah they put GQ magazine, GQ magazine,

00:10:42 --> 00:11:27

tell me some beautiful Riyadh or sila Hain book maybe maybe something about who is Jesus and Islam stuff that we really appreciate maybe something creative May Allah reward all of you who tried to do that which is best for Islam say I mean, within your kibbutz capabilities, number four or five, convey and give Dawa with humbleness and respect. It's very important to deliberate with utmost Allah. Allah says in the Quran are all the bIllahi min ash shaytani R Rajim Oduro ala as the ROB Baker bin Hekmati. Well Maori Latina has Sana wotja Dill home Binetti. He acts and Allah says call people to the path of Allah with wisdom and tell kind advice and if you want to have a discussion or

00:11:27 --> 00:11:41

a debate then mixture is with best of manners, Allahu Akbar. This is what rasool Allah is Allah Allahu Allah Subhana Allah is teaching us look to this wonderful, scary, but optimistic Hadith and same time, he says, bad character

00:11:42 --> 00:12:22

ruins the deed, the action the same way vinegar ruins the honey, I never tried putting vinegar and honey, but I trust him. If you put vinegar in honey, it ruins it. Even if I never tried it, or you ever tried it, we believe it also allies ourselves. But that's how your action is ruined the good stuff you're doing by doing it in a bad clap and bad character. For example, let's say as your true story, I was in another very far away sitting. And there was a brother who was setting up the chairs for the lecture. Wonderful brother big he has a big family. He works very hard to full time. Work in one of the big corporations. He's coming on a Sunday, volunteering the hours beautiful guy, but the

00:12:22 --> 00:12:34

manner in which he was talking to the remaining volunteers was very demeaning. He's like get to see Bring the chair What's the matter with you? Fat You're so slow, but I should have never called you like you see how.

00:12:36 --> 00:13:14

Why you're doing great job and this behavior ruins all your sacrifices, you are better off staying at home doing nothing. May Allah forgive us out of Bella Alameen. So here we learn to do in the best of luck. And also Allah is Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam in one of the beautiful examples. He sent a group of the Sahaba because there is a people around Medina they're trying to spy. There's a lot of enemies towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Lo and behold, this group of Sahaba, they captured the guy. He was a lead that he was like a king in Nigeria in the next area of Central Arabia. So when they captured him, his name was to mama to meet Assad. For mama, this man when he

00:13:14 --> 00:13:52

was captured, and he was brought into the message of the Prophet sallallahu. And he was telling us like a jackpot, kill him. He wants to kill our own people destroy him. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when this man was tied to the pillar of the message in nebo, so yes, he was in the masjid this Kaffir man at that time, the Prophet told him yo, Mama Merenda. So Mama, what do you have? What do you got for us? What's the deal? Here's the deal is simple. I have three options. That's the enemy of Islam. Look what he's saying. He said, option number one, if you want to kill me, they know that my blood is very expensive. So he's threatening the Prophet while he's being tied

00:13:52 --> 00:14:11

to the pillar like you kill me, you know, you will not get away with this. Number two, you forgive me, then I'm a very grateful person. I will pay you back for it and I'll never forget that favor. If you want money. Option three. I'll give you all the money that you want. You know how rich I am. So the profit that I would like he basically he left him.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:51

Then the next day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says he has to mama man that thermometer What do you have? Is like just like why I told you yesterday, I tell you again, today, three options. You kill me. I have a big backup of people that will take care of me. Number two, you'll forgive me. I'm very grateful. Number three, you want money. I'll give you everything that you want. And the Prophet left him. I want you to realize where was he all these days? Where was he? In the Masjid? So he saw he sees the Sahaba interacting. He sees Billa a lot of the Allahu Anhu was an Abyssinian slave, someone who is disrespected very much in that area, being someone that people have

00:14:51 --> 00:14:59

looked up to him. You know what that people used to say about Dylan who was a slave so worthless Nam, they said worthless in the eyes of people, but he's very well

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

or the instead of Allah they used to say Abubaker is a unit a worker is our master. And Dylan is our master and the way they said it Abubaker is our Sayed and he freed our master Billa Rhodiola when you look at the respect and the love, so he sees that he sees the Prophet sallallahu and he's in the wonderful Imam a great example the Imam should be the best example it's a lot of pressure, but the Imam should be the best non negotiable. This is a position that Allah will hold us accountable for the Prophet reading Quran May Allah make you all hear the Prophet reading Quran and Jana yarrabilba Allah mean, so he says all of that, maybe some jokes, some comments some days some halacha third

00:15:38 --> 00:16:17

day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes to him, says yes to mama indexer mama, what's the deal today? Day three, it says the deal of day three is like day one, like day two. Number one, you kill me there's a lot of people that will fight back number two, you forgive me, I will be very grateful. Number three, you want money I give you whatever you want. So the Prophet says Atletico release him what Yasser Allah released him. Kill this man. He's a leader who wants to eliminate us from this earth. Release him. Let him go. This is that lack of Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. What happened? Through mama left the masjid no one touched him. There's even a narration

00:16:18 --> 00:17:03

that says that they fed through ma'am and the food that was being done to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to honor that prisoner. So then when this man left, he went near a palm tree, took a shower, came back, took a shower wine, he came back, and when he walked into the masjid, he said a shadow Allah ilaha illallah wa shadow under Muhammad Rasulullah Sahaba were excited. This is an amazing accomplishment. The king of that area in Ned's became Muslim Allahu Akbar, this man look to what he says. He says, Yeah, Muhammad, there is no face that I hated more than your face. And today, you're the most beloved face to me. Yeah, Muhammad. There's no religion. I hated more than Islam.

00:17:03 --> 00:17:43

And today Islam is the most beloved religion to me. Yeah, Mohammed Medina was the ugliest and worst and most cities that I don't want to even pass by. And today, Medina is the most beloved city to me. Yeah, Mohammed, from now on. I will never deal with any business with the kuffaar and this and that until you give me the thumbs up the green light that yes, I can do this as Khaled or No, I cannot do this because it's haram Allahu Akbar, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam given the glad tidings, the good news. What in the world did he see in 72 hours? Not just to be neutral, he was neutral. If you guys are not so bad, no, you're the best, from the worst to the best within 72

00:17:43 --> 00:18:28

hours. This was the character of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Number five and last one. Convey and give Dawa while focusing on the effort, not the result. Focus on what the effort and not the result Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in karma to Allah haidakhan chiamato fee for sila fell yo Risa if your MO Pm is taking place I want you to imagine the sky is being ripped. The oceans are turned to fire. The light of the sun is fading away. The moon is getting closer to the sun, would you mean a Shem? So we'll come up K CHAOS The Earth is cracking Zulu, Salah and you had a plant? What would you do with like run for your life? Who's going to eat from this plant?

00:18:28 --> 00:19:09

What's the point? The Prophet says if this is all happening, the eruption of Earth is taking place. The sky is being destroyed all of that stuff. You have a plant? Plant it what does it tell you? You take the means leave the results on Allah subhanaw taala who will eat from it? That's not your business. How much will it take to grow leave it to Allah subhanaw taala who will benefit from it leave it to Allah Jalla Jalla you put the effort because if success is based on the on results, then some of the first ones to go to * would be profits when the biller because some profits they come not a single one believing in them, but they are the highest in general Why not results efforts?

00:19:10 --> 00:19:39

Allah says what can I say you come Your efforts are appreciated. What can I say you can miss Cora Allah did not focus on the results there. When it comes to the effort to new hallelujah Salah many parents are here knew how was he a great father or not, without waiting for your answer. No was one of the greatest fathers and parents that ever walked on earth. He is one of the best five prophets ever. But his own son was not a bad Muslim. His own Son does not miss one or two Salah his son was a straight up Kaffir

00:19:40 --> 00:19:59

this does not make him a bad father. Because your success should not be in the hands of the people. Your success should be in the effort that you put and Allah is your ultimate judge. So give that our it's our job to give it number to do it while remembering the reward Allah will give you do it within your keypad.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:15

abilities and capacity. Number four, deliver the data with utmost respect and good luck. Number five, focus on the effort. That's where your success is at. Leave the results on Allah subhanho wa Taala I got 12 seconds left salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
